Lincoln Center receives drink donation Colin Foster

Meet the bionic man

Gentlemen, we can rebuild him, after all. We have the technology. The term “bionic man” was the stuff of science fiction in the 1970s, when a popular TV show called “The Six Million Dollar Man” chronicled the adventures of Steve Austin, a former astronaut whose body was rebuilt using artificial parts after he nearly died.

TROY — It isn’t Thanksgiving yet, but Lincoln Center executive director Shane Carter has plenty to be thankful for. On Wednesday, the Lincoln Center received a big donation from Coca-Cola, providing the center with several cases of Powerade and Dasani Water to be used for the after-school program and concession purposes. “First and foremost, I want to say thanks to Marcus Hall, the representative I was working with from the distribution plant out of Huber Heights,” Carter said. “I want to thank State Representative Richard Adams, who helped us build the connection in the first place. He donated abut 34 cases of Powerade and water. “It really helps assist us with our after-school

program with the large amount of kids we have. It will be used for our concession stands during our upcoming basketball league.” And the thanks didn’t stop there. Carter, who became executive director in 2011, wanted to give a special shout out to the Acorn Society for its recent donation of a refrigerator to the Lincoln Art House. They also contributed money to support the annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner. In addition to that, Carter and his staff wanted to give a special thanks to the Troy United Way for funding the approval of two impact grants, one to repair the radiator heaters in the center and the other to support the after-school program. Carter also wanted to thank the Troy United Way for funding the approval two impact grants to make repairs to radiator heaters and the other to support the after school program.

Shane also said he would like to thank the Troy Foundation for their ongoing support and grant to remodel the pool, along with the generous donation from the Duke Foundation which helped launch the Arts House at Lincoln. “We’ve struggled in the past because we didn’t have the funding,” Carter explained. “It takes 70 hours a week at the place, so it takes a lot of time and it takes a great support cast, a tremendous support staff, and groups that support what we’re doing.” The Lincoln Center, located at 110 Ash St. in Troy, offers more than 60 programs, ranging from basketball open gyms to self defense classes to aquatic aerobics. The winter youth basketball league will start up in December. The registration can be found in the main office and is due by Nov. 23. The league is for ages 5-14 and games will be played in December and January.

TROY — The members of the Concord Township Trustees will discuss the research to implement a no solicitation policy for the township at its regular meeting on Tuesday at 10 a.m. at the township buildinglocated at Horizon West Court. After several complaints from township residents this summer, Trustee Tom Mercer has been researching similar resolutions from townships and other municipalities around the state. The Ohio Township Association recently published several examples of Ohio townships’ no solicitation policies in its publication. Trustees will also discuss the condemned property located at 1541 N. County Road 25-A. Trustees will discuss how Concord Township is expected to now be in compliance with the Miami County Board of Elections’ request to full fill its obligation to make the township’s building more handicap accessible for voters by the Nov. 5 general election. At the Oct. 1 meeting, Concord Township road superintendent Neil Rhoades said Miami County maintenance department has prepared signs for handicapped accessible parking for the township building located on Horizon West Court.

Troy firefighters battle an early morning fire that further destroyed a building at 32 Foss Way, which had been the scene of an arson fire last May that trapped seven people and injured three that were forced to jump out second story windows. Troy and Casstown firefighters battled the blaze.

Troy and Casstown firefighters battled a blaze at 32 Foss Way on Sunday morning, the address of an arson fire earlier this year. Troy Fire Department Platoon Commander Bill Scheafer said Sunday the call

came in at about 5:30 a.m. He said since the multi-unit building was already being prepared for demolition from the previous fire, firefighters did not enter the building. “There was a good bit more damage, but it was already scheduled for demolition,” Scheafer said. “For safety purposes, since there was nothing to save, we opted

not to do an interior attack, which made it a little more difficult to fight.” Scheafer said they believe the fire may have started in the basement of the building, and that the blaze is under investigation. He said the Casstown Fire Department was on See FIRE | 2

Life imitating art

Mario Smiraldo’s work to be honored Thursday Colin Foster

Staff Writer

There’s an expression that says life imitates art. Mario Smiraldo’s outside-the-box way of looking at things and innovative vision as an artist were a mere reflection of that expression. Over the years, Mario built his reputation as a master painter and permanent fixture in

the historic district of Troy. Smiraldo settled down in Troy in the 1990s and lived in the historic district for more than 20 years. Recent medical conditions, however, called for a move to Koester Pavilion on Upper Valley Medical Center’s campus in midSeptember. Mario’s son, Lucas, arrived from Washington

TROY — The moment you see your child’s face is a memory that lasts a lifetime, and one new business in Troy is helping expecting parents get a sneak peek before their baby is born. Peek in the Pod, is a 3-D/4-D ultrasound studio located at 2355 W. Main St., Troy, recently opened this month, offering parents a unique experience to bond with their child before its world debut. Jessica Baisden is the licensed ultrasound sonographer and owner of the ultrasound studio, which offers expecting parents get that first glimpse of their child well before the day of their birth. Baisden said she’ll never forget seeing the first images of her two daughters when she and her husband, Dan, were expecting parents. It was that experience, along with her passion for ultrasound imaging, that led the Baisdens to open the 3-D/4-D studio, one of its kind in the Miami Valley. “I understand the excitement and emotions an expectant mother feels seeing her baby for the first time and wanted to provide others with the experience in a comforting, family-friendly environment,” Baisden said of the new studio. “It was life changing. Just hearing the heart beat and seeing them on the screen — it was something you’ll never forget.” A former teacher, Baisden returned to her career as an ultrasound sonographer to offer a unique experience to expecting mothers and families in the area. “I have such a passion for ultrasound and helping parents see their child’s fetal growth,” Baisden said. Originally wanting to pursue a career in the nursing field, Baisden fell in love with capture images by ultrasound images while she was a student at Kettering School of Medical Arts. See PEEK | 2

the scene for about three hours, while the Troy Fire Department remained for about seven hours. He said in the end a contractor was brought in with a backhoe to demolish part of the building in order to assure all of the hot spots were out and the scene was secured with no fire. Scheafer said the building has been uninhabited since the May 22 fire. Michael D. LeGrant, 26, of Troy, stands accused of setting the May fire and is charged with two counts of aggravated arson. LeGrant, originally charged with five aggravated arson charges, faces a maximum prison penalty of nearly two decades behind bars, in addition to any fines levied by the court and restitution in the case for property damage and medical bills. The damage was estimated for the first fire at $250,000 for the building and another $60,000 for contents. LeGrant is believed to have intentionally set the fire, which forced three people to jump from a second-story window and four others to be rescued by fire officials. His court case is pending in Miami Couny Common Pleas Court.

to oversee his transition from the hospital to Koester Pavilion. Since then, Lucas has been in Troy many times spending time with his father, and he said he is happy to see his father’s arts legacy will be able to continue on in new hands. Mario Smiraldo’s work will be available for purchase at an estate sale at Pearson Court from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday. “My father has been a true art innovator,” Lucas said. “Many folks may not realize that his art has been ground breaking and really life affirming. He has been kind of well-kept secret in the region, except among his many friends in the historic district and beyond. I think much of my father’s heart and soul will be on display at his final estate sale event and for those who valued him, this is a chance to honor his impact and keep a part of him in this close community. “He’s very creative, and he’s never stopped growing as an artist. The older he’s gotten, the more creative and innovative he became as an artist.” Lucas has built quite a reputation himself as an artist, though his art comes in the form of the written word. He is a playwright and a performance poet, who holds the

position of Poet Laureate in Tacoma, Wash. Lucas credits his artistic prowess to his father. But Mario wasn’t just known for his art work … he was a man of the people in Troy. Mario has been a very loving man — and that’s something several Troy community members can attest too, none more so than Margaret Beggs, owner of Bakehouse Breads. Mario would arrive during his morning walking rounds every day for a cup of coffee. In exchange, Mario would cook for Beggs, mostly sharing

old Italian recipes, including a special meatball sandwich with pine nuts and beef prosciutto. Beggs even became a subject of one of Mario’s paintings, which now hangs at Bakehouse Breads. “He was dear to me,” Beggs said. “Everyone in here loved Mario and we are going to miss him.” Another frequent stop of Mario’s was the US Bank on South Market Street. Bank manager Lisa Burk said Mario was lively, funny and full of surprises every time he came in.

“We really loved seeing Mario and we are all going to miss him at US Bank,” Burk said. “We looked forward to seeing him come in with his stylish hat to do business and make us laugh.” As a lifelong painter, Mario held many art shows in the region. Among the most valuable of Mario’s possessions is an original woodcut that he developed in the 1960s, which captured General Custer’s final demise at the hands of the Sioux member, White Bull — a piece that won first prize at the Graphics Division of the Akron Art Institute spring show in 1969. Mario Smiraldo will be sharing his art work and legacy one final time Thursday at Pearson Court — a sale that will capture his life through his early oil paintings through his later period of abstract art, including his water color and line drawings. Smiraldo also was a wood carver and specialty furniture builder, and his tools and original pieces will also be on display during the one-day event. Smirialdo, who ran his own marketing agency for the last 30 years, also will have on display many of his trade tools, including paint brushes and vintage Letraset collections.

From page 1 Also, Peek in the Pod also allows expectant mothers share more detail images of the baby with the baby’s father and family members in a non-sterile environment, Baisden said. Baisden also said sometimes determining the sex of a baby in a doctor’s office can be tricky when the fetus “doesn’t want to cooperate,” so parents can schedule an appointment and get an extra glimpse of the latest addition to their family.

“I’ve got the most amazing job in the world,” Baisden said. “It’s so amazing to be able to help parents see their child in 3-D and 4-D and to share that experience with others with pictures or coming with them to the studio and not feel rushed at a doctor’s office.” Baisden said she’s also been a witness to many emotional moments with her clients in the first few weeks of opening the studio.

Baisden said she recently had a couple trying for a baby for almost a decade to come to the studio and get another look at their first child. “To be able to be a part of their story and give them images of their first child, make this the best job in the world,” Basiden said. Whether parents want to enjoy seeing their child as a bonding experience or have a room full of celebrating family and friends, Baisden said the

studio can accommodate up to 15 people in their viewing rooms. The studio also has partnered with Krystal Covington, a local photographer specializing in maternity and new born photography. The ultrasound studio is an elective experience and all potential clients are encouraged to seek prenatal care with their doctor prior to using Peek in the Pod services, Baisden said. 3D is a still image while

4D adds the dimension of motion so it looks like a video, Baisden said. According to Peek in the Pod’s website, many mothers like coming in twice, early on, 15-26 weeks, when they can see the baby as a whole, and then again at 25-34 weeks to see a more detailed face. Between 28-32 weeks, your baby develops more fat and gets a more defined face. After 34 weeks, it becomes more and more difficult to obtain good pictures

since the baby is running out of room. However all babies are different and Baisden said they have been successful in obtaining great images all the way up to 39 weeks. The studio is offering $20 off packages through the month of October as part of its grand opening.

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Gunfire that erupted and left five people injured at a traditional Hmong New Year’s festival followed by the prompt arrest of two men suspected in the shooting have rattled this peaceful, tight-knit community of about 4,000 in east Tulsa, and some feared Sunday the rampage could deter other Hmong from attending upcoming cultural celebrations, including one set later this month. “It’s really sad because a lot of people do not feel safe to go to the other New Year’s celebrations. I know there are people who don’t want to attend that anymore,” said Joua Xiong, who attended Saturday’s celebration along with hundreds of other Hmong people and heard the gunfire break out. “It’s very sad because this is the only time we

really get to embrace our culture and unite as one. “And I know a lot of other people will not come (to the Oct. 26-27 event) because of that,” she said. Hmong are an Asian ethnic group mainly from Laos and number between 3,000 and 4,000 in Tulsa. Many have traveled to Tulsa from across the country during recent years seeking jobs. Two men have been taken into custody and face multiple charges in the shooting of five people at Saturday’s festival, authorities said Sunday. Authorities were holding 21-year-old Boonmlee Lee and 19-year-old Meng Lee, both of Tulsa. Each faces five counts of shooting with intent to kill plus firearms charges. It was not clear from jail records whether each had an attorney.

Tulsa police spokesman Capt. Steve Odom said a gun was recovered but that it will have to be tested to see if it is linked to the Saturday night shooting. Odom said the alleged shooters and the victims were all Hmong and that there was “probably a relationship” between the men charged and the victims. The suspects were arrested shortly after the attack, which happened about 8 p.m. A police helicopter that was in the area spotted a car driving away from the scene with its headlights off and notified officers on the ground, who pulled it over. The suspects had thrown clothes and a semi-automatic handgun believed to have been used in the attack out of the vehicle, police said. A witness at the party

described the chaotic scene, as people lined up to get dinner were sent running and ducking for cover when the shots rang out. There were at least 200 people at the celebration, which festival-goers likened to a Thanksgiving celebration in America. For Xiong, who was walking with her family to get dinner Saturday night at the festival, she heard a loud ‘pop’ sound, but didn’t think anything of it at first, believing it was a balloon. “Then I realized we didn’t have any balloons over there, and then everyone started standing up and taking cover,” she recalled in an interview Sunday with The Associated Press. “Some people were crying already, and that scared us.” Xiong said Sunday she

did not know the two alleged gunmen and questioned why they showed up at the party. “I’ve never seen them in my life,” she said. “They really don’t have common Hmong names, either,” she said. “I don’t know if they were from out of town or what,” Spokeswomen for the two Tulsa hospitals where the victims were transported said they could not release information on the condition of the wounded Sunday, citing the ongoing police investigation. But Xiathao Moua, the president of the Hmong American Association of Oklahoma, Inc., said he visited the two hospitals Sunday morning and said even though the victims sustained injuries from the shooting, they are expected to live. He would not elaborate fur-

ther on the nature of the injuries to the victims, citing privacy concerns. Moua described hearing the shots ring out Saturday night as some party guests were toasting with champagne and waiting in line to get dinner. What happened next, he said, was chaos and confusion. “The emcee at the ceremony, he was on the stand and he told everybody to lay down under the table and the floor,” he said. Moua also said he asked the victims at both Tulsa hospitals if they knew why they were targeted by the violence or if they could describe the shooters, but they could not, he told the AP on Sunday. Names of the victims, who police say are all hospitalized, weren’t released.

Mrs. Beamish’s activities within the Troy community are vast as well; she is a member of the Troy Noon Optimist Club, the Sculptures on the Square Committee and currently serves as President of the Altrusa Club of Troy. Mrs. Beamish also is an active member of St. John’s United Church of Christ, where she is president of the church council. Mrs. Beamish has received many well-deserved honors and acknowledgements that serve as a testimony to the respect in which she is held by her colleagues, community leaders and former students. Some of these distinctions include being named the 2011 Outstanding Educator by the Troy Area Chamber of Commerce and a 2011 Woman of Excellence

Both of these high accolades underpin the depth of positive impact that Ginny Beamish continues to have on her community and those young people to whom she has committed her professional life. It is for all these reasons that I encourage all Trojans to join with me in supporting Ginny Beamish as a write-in candidate for Troy City School Board. It is asked that when casting your vote, write “Ginny Beamish” exactly as you see it here — incorrect or different spellings of the name will result in an invalid vote.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Tuscaloosa (Ala.) News on Venezuela finds U.S. a handy scapegoat: Americans have been laboring under the delusion that we had to travel halfway around the world to find a gaggle of dangerous nut cases. Who knew we could have hung out in the western hemisphere and found all we wanted just across the Gulf of Mexico in Venezuela? Things are going badly in that workers’ paradise. Inflation is rocking along at 45 percent, and they’re running out of foreign currency to use because their own probably sees its highest and best use in Venezuelan restrooms. So what do the leaders of that fair nation do? In that grim state of affairs with an election looming on the horizon, they kick out three American diplomats, including Charge D’Affaires Kelly Keiderling, the top diplomat in the absence of an ambassador. Dealing with that bunch, the diplomats are probably about ready for a break… President Nicolas Maduro assured himself of a nomination for an Oscar in the “Most Worn Cliché of the Year” category in announcing the expulsion. “Yankees go home,” he said in English. (No, he really did; we can’t make up this stuff). Who knew he was a Red Sox fan? Maduro accused the Americans of conspiring with the “extreme right” and attempting to sabotage the country’s power grid. Really? Why stop there and leave Bigfoot, UFOs and Elvis on the table. But then again, it’s hard to argue about meeting with the “extreme right” when everybody not to the left of Josef Stalin looks right-wing to the Venezuelan leadership. Jane Fonda and Ed Asner would qualify as stodgy conservatives there. The Obama administration engaged in the necessary waste of time defending its diplomats and denying that it threw squirrels into substation equipment or whatever means of sabotage it was supposed to have used. … There is likely little Obama can or should do with the oil rich country that seems to have made tweaking Uncle Sam’s nose its national ambition. He can hope that the Venezuelan people eventually tire of the foolishness and elect sane leadership. Until then, his best hope is to just ignore the yapping little dog next door and hope that he stays in his own yard. Arizona Republic on settling shutdown now: Washington’s game of political chicken has a clear loser: the American people. So settle this. The nation needs a clean continuing resolution to end the partial shutdown. The nation also needs a clean bill to raise the debt ceiling. The sooner the better. President Barack Obama says he’s willing to negotiate with “reasonable” congressional Republicans “over policies that Republicans think would strengthen the country” — including the Affordable Care Act — as soon as the shutdown is over and the debt ceiling is raised. Arizona Republican Reps. Matt Salmon, David Schweikert, Paul Gosar and Trent Franks are opponents of “Obamacare.” Fine. But these lawmakers need to stop obstructing and help get the government running again. Then they can make their case against the Affordable Care Act. Holding your breath until America turns blue is not an acceptable way to win an argument. America is polarized. Debate and compromise are essential to reach consensus. … People have already suffered from the partial shutdown. Ask a hotel owner near the Grand Canyon. The stakes for default are much higher, and it isn’t just the Obama administration saying that. James E. Staley, managing partner of the hedge fund Blue Mountain Capital (TSXV:MCI’P) , says failing to raise the debt limit would be “calamitous.” Worse than the financial meltdown in 2008. The International Monetary Fund’s chief economist Olivier Blanchard said the recovery could turn into recession if we miss the Oct. 17 deadline. A big dose of uncertainty between now and then won’t help bring back the economic good times, either. Meanwhile, America is wearing a clown nose on the world stage. President Obama missed the summit of Pacific Rim leaders in Indonesia this week because of the turmoil. … Congress needs to get past this latest exercise in governing by crisis.

Hyperlink plus hypertext equals hypertension If you’ve read this column much at all, you know there is a distinct love/hate relationship between my computer and me. To be precise, my computer loves to make me hate it. After many years of contentious relationship, an uneasy truce has been called. My computer, since the day it came out of its snug little box, has shown signs of developing a will of its own. It resembles, excluding the voice, the evil computer HAL in the movie “2001: A Space Odyssey.” If my computer could talk, though, I know it would be saying, HAL-like, “I’m afraid I can’t let you do that” except my computer isn’t afraid of anything, including me and my opposable thumb which could unplug it. This is not a good thing. In response, I have mastered exactly two ways to address an issue with the beast. When all else fails I try either clicking the right side of the mouse or restarting the computer. And there ends my adroitness in computer repair. Clicking the right side of the mouse brings up a whole new menu of choices. Do not let my use of technical

terms such as “menu” lull you into to be the archetypical soulless thinking I know my way around a monster. In a perfect world, this motherboard.

They stopped at display tables, Kelly asked dealers questions about the weapons, and Giffords shook hands and smiled when people greeted her. “Good to see you looking good!” some said. Kelly bought a book on Colt revolvers, and said later he probably would have bought a gun if he had had more time. He said both he and his wife are gun owners. The trio was greeted by light applause when introduced at the news conference, but some people booed from across the room. Many at the show said the couple made a good impression.

Dying Ohio man on gurney leads daughter down aisle CLEVELAND (AP) — A terminally ill Ohio man who arrived at his daughter’s wedding by ambulance gave her away, from a hospital gurney. Guests cried and clapped as Scott Nagy took part in daughter Sarah’s wedding Saturday at First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Strongsville, The Plain Dealer of Cleveland reported ( A volunteer team of medical professionals helped Nagy escort the 24-year-old bride as groom Angelo Salvatore and the Rev. Chuck Knerem awaited their arrival. “It was a promise I made in March, to walk her down the aisle,” said the 56-year-old Brunswick man. “She’s my princess. This is my definition of walking down the aisle.” Nagy was diagnosed last year with urethral cancer and has undergone chemotherapy. He has been at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center since August. Doctors were uncertain if he would be able to make the wedding, initially scheduled for next year. But with monitor cords slipped under his tuxedo and a tracheal tube attached, he made the trip down the aisle, kissing a grandson who was the ringbearer and giving a thumb’s up. “There was no way he was not going to finish this out,” said his wife Jean. Jacky Uljanic, a nurse practitioner with the hospital, helped make the arrangements for Nagy to attend the wedding. She put him through daily therapy to build up his strength and she checked on the logistics in advance. Physicians Medical Transport donated the ambulance trip, and a doctor and other medical personnel accompanied Nagy on the ride. Sarah said that since she was a little girl, she has wanted her father to escort her down the aisle when she married. She said her future husband assured her she would get her wish. At the vestibule, she burst into tears and told her father she loved him. “We did it,” Nagy said to her and reminded her not to streak her makeup.

Ohio clears specialty drug-makers in executions COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio could begin executing inmates with doses of a lethal injection drug prepared by specialized pharmacies under a change in its execution process prompted by difficulties securing the powerful sedative last used by the state. New Ohio prisons department execution rules allowing compounding pharmacies were filed in federal court Friday, just days after the state’s last supplies of pentobarbital expired. Such businesses custom-make drugs but aren’t subject to federal scrutiny. The new policy also establishes an alternative intravenous drug combination — the sedative midazolam with the opiate hydromorphone — if expired pentobarbital is deemed unusable or if new supplies of the drug are unavailable. Ohio’s last dose of unexpired pentobarbital was used to put Harry Mitts to death Sept. 25 for fatally shooting two people, including a suburban Cleveland police officer. The process of relying on compounding pharmacies for future pentobarbital supplies may require legislation to protect those pharmacies from lawsuits by capital punishment opponents. Federal public defender Allen

Bohnert said he was reviewing the new drug protocol’s potential role in federal litigation challenging Ohio’s execution procedures. The policy is in effect for the scheduled November execution of Ronald Phillips, sentenced to die for raping and killing his girlfriend’s 3-year-old daughter in Akron in 1993. “We’re disappointed that Ohio has chosen to turn to these unregulated and questionable sources for their official execution drug,” said Bohnert, who doesn’t represent Phillips. A federal judge has indicated he would review the new policy. The original manufacturer of pentobarbital, Denmark-based Lundbeck Inc., in 2011 put the drug off-limits for executions and required that prohibition remain when it sold the product to Lake Forest, Ill.-based Akorn Inc. (NASDAQ:AKRX) As a result, supplies had dried up in Ohio and around the country. Texas, the nation’s busiest deathpenalty state, disclosed in records released this week that it has turned to a compounding pharmacy to replenish its pentobarbital supply. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration considers products from compounding pharmacies unapproved drugs and doesn’t

vouch for their safety or effectiveness. The businesses came under new scrutiny after last year’s deadly meningitis outbreak was linked to contaminated injections made by a compounding pharmacy in Massachusetts. Ohio’s announcement Friday marks the third time the state has made a change related to the drug it uses in lethal injection. In 2009, Ohio switched from a three-drug cocktail to a single dose of sodium thiopental. In 2011, it switched to pentobarbital when the manufacturer of sodium thiopental also restricted its distribution. Bohnert said rules revised so often raise questions about the process. “The fact that they need to change the protocol so frequently suggests that perhaps there should be a serious discussion about whether to have the death penalty in Ohio at all,” he said. Among other states struggling to find alternatives are Georgia, Missouri and Arkansas. A legal challenge has placed Missouri’s proposal to use propofol on hold, and anesthesiologists are asking the state to reconsider out of fear it could lead to restrictions of the drug needed for hospital use.

Ohio student loan default rate among highest DAYTON (AP) — Ohio’s student loan default rate is among the 10 highest in the country with nearly 30,000 Ohioans defaulting on federal loans they were supposed to start repaying in 2010, a newspaper reported. A total of 29,500 Ohioans are among more than 600,000 former college students defaulting on student loans for the three-year period, a Dayton-area newspaper reports. Ohio’s default rate over that time increased from 13.2 percent to 16.2 percent, according to new data from the U.S. Department of Education. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau reports that more than 7 million borrowers are currently in default on a federal or private student loan, meaning they missed payment for nine months. Defaults leave borrowers facing problems that include late fees, added interests, wage garnish-

ment and court costs. “The consequences of default are so severe,” said Lauren Asher, president of The Institute for College Access and Success. She said the debt can follow borrowers for the rest of their lives, ruining their credit and making it difficult to buy a car or rent an apartment. It can also limit job prospects and make it impossible to get federal grants or loans to return to school, Asher said. Ohioans graduate with an average $28,683 in loans, according to the Project on Student Debt. But fees and interest

can cause that debt to increase quickly when borrowers don’t find jobs after college and default on their loans. Ronnie Battson, 57, said he owes $60,000 for a $24,000 loan he took out to fund his computer networking degree from ITT Technical Institute in 2001. The Dayton resident said he has applied for jobs in his field without success and now works as a security guard at minimum wage, while his student debt keeps growing. “It gets really discouraging,” he said. The Department of Education advises bor-

rowers in default to contact the agencies billing them, explain their situation and ask the agencies to work with them. U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass, who has proposed changes aimed at helping borrowers, says debt can be very destructive. “It kills hope. It kills opportunity,” she said. Warren has proposed restoring bankruptcy protections for student debt and giving graduates the ability to refinance their debt to take advantage of historically low interest rates. She also wants loans be made at no profit to the government.


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — A smiling Gabrielle Giffords toured rows of tables loaded with rifles and handguns Sunday in her first visit to a gun show since surviving a 2011 shooting, and pleaded afterward for people to come together to stop gun violence. The former Arizona congresswoman visited the Saratoga Springs Arms Fair with her astronaut husband, Mark Kelly and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to highlight a voluntary agreement that closely monitors gun show sales in New York. The trio mixed with a gun show crowd that was mostly welcoming — with a few hostile undertones — before calling for people to build on the cooperative effort. “We must never stop fighting,” Giffords said at a post-tour news conference, her fist in the air. “Fight! Fight! Fight! Be bold! Be

UVMC adding robot-assisted surgery Upper Valley Medical Center will introduce robot-assisted surgery to the Miami County area with the addition of a da Vinci® Si™ surgical system to the UVMC surgery department in November. The new system provides sophisticated robotic technology and offers a minimally invasive option for certain types of surgery. It will be the only robotic surgery unit between Dayton and Lima. “This technologic investment demonstrates UVMC’s commitment to provide our community access to advancements in minimally invasive surgery,” said Rowan R. Nichol, M.D., chair of the UVMC Board of Directors, and retired surgeon. “We are excited about the addition of this surgical technology,” said Tom Parker, UVMC president and CEO. “Our partner hospitals in Premier Health have been key in assisting with this important addition, sharing their experience in robotic surgery to help make this

possible.” “As in all areas our goal is to provide effective, efficient treatment options that offer the best possible outcomes for our patients,” Parker added. With the new robotic system, small incisions are used to insert miniaturized wristed instruments and a high-definition 3D camera. Seated at the system console, the surgeon views a magnified, high-resolution, 3D image of the surgical site inside the body. At the same time, the robotic and computer technologies scale, filter and translate the surgeon’s hand movements into precise micro-movements of the system’s instruments. Among the clinical benefits are enhanced visual clarity and surgical dexterity. The da Vinci System features an enhanced vision system and tiny wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human wrist. “This technology takes surgical capabilities

to a new level,” said Dan Bailey, DPM, and UVMC Chief Medical Officer. “Although it is often called a ‘robot,’ the da Vinci system cannot move or operate on its own,” he added. “The surgeon is 100% in control.” Initially, UVMC’s new robot-assisted surgical system will be used in the area of gynecologic surgery. When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery may be an effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions. The da Vinci surgery system can offer a minimally invasive option for certain women facing gynecologic surgery. Benefits for some patients include the potential for less pain, shorter hospital stay and faster return to normal daily activities. However, not all patients are candidates for robotic surgery. To learn more about robot-assisted surgery, talk to your gynecologist and/or visit www. or

Open house scheduled An open house to introduce the community to robot-assisted surgery will be Oct. 23, in the main lobby at Upper Valley Medical Center. The new surgical robot will be on display, and visitors will be able to try their hand at operating the robot. Physicians who will be using the robot will be on hand to answer questions. Door prize drawings and refreshments will be included.

Invention has people dancing in their seats AP Photo

In this Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013 photo provided by Showtime, Bertolt Meyer, a social psychologist for the University of Zurich, poses for a photo in New York. Meyer is the face of the the Bionic Man and is featured in the Smithsonian Channel original documentary, "The Incredible Bionic Man."

‘Bionic man’ walks, breathes NEW YORK (AP) — Gentlemen, we can rebuild him, after all. We have the technology. The term “bionic man” was the stuff of science fiction in the 1970s, when a popular TV show called “The Six Million Dollar Man” chronicled the adventures of Steve Austin, a former astronaut whose body was rebuilt using artificial parts after he nearly died. Now, a team of engineers have assembled a robot using artificial organs, limbs and other body parts that comes tantalizingly close to a true “bionic man.” For real, this time. The artificial “man” is the subject of a Smithsonian Channel documentary that airs Sunday, Oct. 20 at 9 p.m. Called “The Incredible Bionic Man,” it chronicles engineers’ attempt to assemble a functioning body using artificial parts that range from a working kidney and circulation system to cochlear and retina implants. The parts hail from 17 manufacturers around the world. This is the first time they’ve been assembled together, says Richard Walker, managing director of Shadow Robot Co. and the lead roboticist on the project. “(It’s) an attempt to showcase just how far medical science has gotten,” he says. The robot making appearances in the U.S. for the first time this week. Having crossed the Atlantic tucked inside two metal trunks — and after a brief holdup in customs — the bionic man will strut his stuff at the New York Comic Con festival on Friday. Walker says the robot has about 60 to 70 percent of the function of a human. It stands six-and-a-half feet tall and can

step, sit and stand with the help of a Rex walking machine that’s used by people who’ve lost the ability to walk due to a spinal injury. It also has a functioning heart that, using an electronic pump, beats and circulates artificial blood, which carries oxygen just like human blood. An artificial, implantable kidney, meanwhile, replaces the function of a modern-day dialysis unit. Although the parts used in the robot work, many of them are a long way from being used in humans. The kidney, for example, is only a prototype. And there are some key parts missing: there’s no digestive system, liver, or skin. And, of course, no brain. The bionic man was modeled after Bertolt Meyer, a 36-year-old social psychologist at the University of Zurich who was born without his lower left arm and wears a bionic prosthesis. The man’s face was created based on a 3D scan of Meyer’s face. “We wanted to showcase that the technology can provide aesthetic prostheses for people who have lost parts of their faces, for example, their nose, due to an accident or due to, for example, cancer,” Meyer says. Meyer says he initially felt a sense of unease when he saw the robot for the first time. “I thought it was rather revolting to be honest,” he says. “It was quite a shock to see a face that closely resembles what I see in the mirror every morning on this kind of dystopian looking machine.” He has since warmed up to it, especially after the “man” was outfitted with some clothes from the U.K. department store Harrods.

The kids released their wheelchairs and leg braces, the sticks that help them see and the iPads that help them speak, and piled them in a corner. They went to Merry Lynn Morris, with her twisting blond hair and legs like a ballerina in a jewelry box. She helped them stretch and rubbed their bellies. “Reach your arms all the way up,” she said. “Look to the sky, and say thank you!” Morris is a dance professor at the University of South Florida, and more recently, an inventor. She was introducing kids with spina bifida and cerebral palsy to a chair she dreamed up. On this weekend in their class, the chair would let them dance. Not pretend to dance, not be pulled by a dancer, but actually dance. The kids peered at it, standing tall in the corner of the studio. Anybody in any body should have the right to dance, Morris said. An accident or a disability needn’t relegate the people you love to your back, pushing you, telling you where to go. If her father had been able to use this chair, he might have danced again, too. The Rolling Dance Chair was born from the brain of a dancer, not an engineer. It has taken seven years and $150,000 of grant money to get to this point, evolving from a stripped-down Segway — those rolling devices that tour groups ride through cities — to a sleek, elegant design. It’s getting closer to what Morris imagined, getting more attention from the world each year. U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth of Illinois, a double amputee, tried the chair on a visit to USF in 2010. This month, Morris is scheduled to present her invention at the Smithsonian Institution during a conference for innovators.

SHNS Photo Merry Lynn Morris, a dance professor at the University of South Florida, shows Jessica Hendricks, 7, how to use the electronic dance wheelchair Morris invented during a mixed-ability dance class in Tampa.

The chair is stately with a synthetic round seat that’s clear, designed to almost disappear under the dancer. It is sturdy enough for a second dancer to stand on, spinning, leg extended in full arabesque. The most important feature of the chair is the person sitting in it. He is in control. When he leans, the chair moves. The wheels can propel the chair in any direction using the slightest movement of a body. It’s an extension of dance, Morris said, not an obstacle. No one thinks twice about a tap shoe, or a ballet shoe with a wooden block on the end. Think of Broadway dances, the rolling desk chairs and elaborate sets. Think of the hoops and flames of Cirque du Soleil.

People have a harder time getting past a wheelchair. “You create these devices and people are frightened of them,” said Morris, 38. “Get out of the way; here comes the wheelchair user.” Reality doesn’t have to be so black and white, and dance doesn’t have to be so exact. It’s something she has learned over the years. “The manifestation of this project is sort of my whole way of being in the world,” she said. “It has been shaped by the desire to bring multiple realities together.” Morris was a dancer from the start. She had strong ankles and uncanny leg extension. She also loved to take things apart, ride her bike with no hands and try every piece of equipment on the playground.

Flu vaccine gets a shot of innovation in design, delivery Until 2003, there was only the flu shot. A needle into the arm delivered vaccine, and a couple of weeks later your immune system was primed to fight off the top three strains of influenza likely to be floating around that winter and early spring. But over the past several years, flu vaccine developers and manufacturers have been doing a lot of tinkering. They’ve come up with at least seven different types of vaccine and/or delivery modes. There are options for people who haven’t been able to get vaccinated because of egg allergy; for those who hate needles; for those who hate needles injected into muscle and for older people with balky immune systems who might need a stronger dose to gain protection; and new lines of vaccines that protect against an extra strain of flu virus. In all, manufacturers have told the

federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention they expect to produce at least 135 million flu vaccine doses for distribution in the U.S. this season, with more than 73 million doses already delivered to doctors’ offices, clinics, pharmacies, hospitals and other outlets. Last year, the flu season got an early start in October. Many officials fear the same pattern may repeat this fall, prompting an early “get a flu shot” campaign that rivals the Christmas promotions by some retail chains. The CDC and other public health advocates recommend flu vaccination for anyone 6 months or older (younger babies immune systems aren’t geared up enough to get it). Last year, an estimated 56 percent of children and 42 percent of adults got flu vaccine. Children younger than 9 getting a flu shot the first time need two doses. “We have more types of vaccine avail-

able than ever before and there are one or more options that are right for everyone,” Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University and past president of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, said at a Sept. 26 briefing sponsored by the foundation. All flu vaccines will include strains of H1N1 and H3N2 and a strain of influenza B. The three-strain or “trivalent” vaccine represents the bulk of vaccine stocks available this season. Some lines are made using virus grown in eggs and can be given to anyone 6 months and older; others are grown in cell culture and approved only for patients 18 and older. The four-strain, or quadrivalent, vaccine is the big innovation for this year, protecting against a second B-type influenza that mainly sickens young children. It’s available as a shot and as a nasal spray, which is limited to use on

healthy people ages 2 to 49. Vaccination experts expect the fourstrain dose will replace the three-strain version in all products within two to five years, but the CDC says it will make up less than a quarter of vaccine supplies this year. Quadrivalent vaccines will cost a third to half more, according to some prices in government contracts and trade reports. For instance, one manufacturer’s price per dose to the CDC is $12.03 for the four-strain, $8.08 for the standard three-strain version. Another three-strain version can be delivered with barely a tingle by an array of tiny, short microneedles into the skin, rather than by a single needle into muscle. And for people sensitive to eggs — roughly 1 percent of adults and 4 percent of children — there’s a new eggfree three-strain formula. The vaccine is cultured in caterpillar cells.

Spending stumbling block to budget deal AP Photo WWII 10th Mountain Division veterans arrive at the WWII Memorial Sunday in Washington. Four busloads of people, including 43 WWII veterans from the 10th Mountain Division, came to the WWII memorial. The memorial has been closed due to the government shutdown. Access barriers to the memorial site were moved aside by protesters.

Crowd pushes through barriers to WWII Memorial

WASHINGTON (AP) — A crowd converged on the World War II Memorial on the National Mall on Sunday, pushing past barriers to protest the memorial’s closing under the government shutdown. Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah, along with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, were part of the demonstrators. Cruz and Lee are among the tea party-backed lawmakers who refused to keep the government operating unless President Barack Obama agreed to defund the nation’s health care overhaul. “Let me ask a simple question,” Cruz told the crowd of hundreds that gathered beginning at 9 a.m. “Why is the federal government spending money to erect barricades to keep veterans out of this memorial?” Black metal barricades have lined the front of the memorial since the government closed Oct. 1. That’s when more than 300 National Park Service workers

who staff and maintain the National Mall were furloughed. As the crowd entered the memorial plaza, they chanted “Tear down these walls” and “You work for us.” They sang “God bless America” and other songs. “Our vets have proven that they have not been timid, so we will not be timid in calling out any who would use our military, our vets, as pawns in a political game,” Palin told the crowd. The memorial has become a political symbol in the bitter fight between Democrats and Republicans over who is to blame for the shutdown. Earlier rallies have focused on allowing access for World War II veterans visiting from across the country. Sunday’s rally was more political. A protest by truckers converged with a rally by a group called the Million Vet March at the memorial. Participants cut the plastic links between metal barriers at the National Park Service site and pushed them aside.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republicans and Democrats hit an impasse Sunday over spending in their last-ditch struggle to avoid an economy-jarring default in just four days and end a partial government shutdown that’s entering its third week. After inconclusive talks between President Barack Obama and House Republicans, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., took charge in trying to end the crises, although a conversation Sunday afternoon failed to break the stalemate. “I’m optimistic about the prospects for a positive conclusion to the issues before this country today,” Reid said as the Senate wrapped up a rare Sunday session. The two cagy negotiators are at loggerheads over Democratic demands to undo or change the automatic, across-the-board spending cuts to domestic and defense programs that the GOP see as crucial to reducing the nation’s deficit. McConnell insisted a solution was readily available in the proposal from a bipartisan group of 12 senators, led by Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., that would re-open the government and fund it at current levels for six months while raising the debt limit through Jan. 31. “It’s time for Democrat leaders to take ‘yes’ for an answer,” McConnell said in a statement. But six Democrats in the group and a spokesman for Collins said that while negotiations continued this weekend, there was no agreement. The latest snag comes as 350,000 federal workers remain idle, hundreds of thousands more work without pay and an array of government services, from home loan applications to environmental inspections, were on hold on the 13th day of the shutdown. Many parks and monuments remain closed, drawing a protest at the National World War II Memorial on Sunday that included tea party-backed lawmakers who had unsuccessfully

demanded defunding of Obama’s 3-year-old health care law in exchange for keeping the government open. Unnerving to world economies is the prospect of the United States defaulting on its financial obligations on Thursday if Congress fails to raise the borrowing authority above the $16.7 trillion debt limit. Christine Lagarde, the International Monetary Fund’s managing director, spoke fearfully about the disruption and uncertainty, warning of a “risk of tipping, yet again, into recession” after the fitful recovery from 2008. The reaction of world financial markets and the Dow Jones (NYSE:DJ) on Monday will influence any congressional talks. Congress is racing the clock to get a deal done, faced with time-consuming Senate procedures that could slow legislation, likely opposition from tea partyers and certain resistance in the Republican-led House before a bill gets to Obama. Politically, Republicans are reeling, bearing a substantial amount of the blame for the government shutdown and stalemate. “We’re in a free-fall as Republicans, but Democrats are not far behind,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., in warning Democrats about seizing on the GOP’s bruised brand as leverage to extract more concessions. McConnell and Republicans want to continue current spending at $986.7 billion and leave untouched the new round of cuts in January, commonly known as sequester, that would reduce the amount to $967 billion. Democrats want to figure out a way to undo the reductions, plus a long-term extension of the debt limit increase and a short-term spending bill to reopen the government. “Republicans want to do it with entitlement cuts,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. “Democrats want to do it with a mix of mandatory cuts, some entitlements and revenues. And so how do you overcome that dilemma? We’re not going to overcome it in the next day or two.”

Lions rally, beat Browns CLEVELAND (AP) — The scoreboard was lopsided. The stat sheet looked worse. And after Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford and the rest of the Lions dragged themselves back to the locker room at halftime, there was only one thing to do. “Press the reset button,” wide receiver Kris Durham said. Starting fresh after being dominated by Cleveland in the first half, Stafford threw

three of his four touchdown passes after halftime, rallying Detroit to a 31-17 win over the Browns on Sunday. The Lions (4-2) outscored the Browns 24-0 in the second half, sealing their win when Stafford hooked up with rookie tight end Joseph Fauria with 2:01 left. The 6-foot-7 Fauria caught three TD passes for the Lions, who played like a completely different team in the second half after leaving the field down

17-7 and looking listless, lifeless and destined for a second straight loss. “We weren’t playing our best,” Lions coach Jim Schwartz said of his team’s first-half struggles. “The players knew it. We came out in the second half and started to hit on all cylinders.” The Browns (3-3) had their chances at a comeback end when quarterback Brandon Weeden’s baffling shovel pass with 4:36 left was intercepted

with 6:44 left in overtime to seal a 27-24 win over Buffalo on Sunday. Nugent rediscovered his aim after missing a 34-yard attempt wide right that would have put the Bengals up 27-10 late in the third quarter. And Dalton showed an ability to bounce back as well. Ending a two-game touchdown drought, Dalton silenced

It’s finally that time. Tournament time. This week, three more fall sports finally head into the postseason – cross country, soccer and volleyball – while two others, golf and tennis, have already wound down and ended. Coming to an end over the weekend in the process was Tippecanoe’s Lindsey Murray’s amazing high school career. More than 20 tournament wins, three trips to state, and it all ended with a state runner-up finish while helping four underclassmen get some experience at the highest level. In tennis, meanwhile, no Josh one was able to crack the Brown district tournament and get Sports to state. In fact, in Division I, Editor all four of the state qualifiers in both singles and doubles came from the Mason sectional, meaning the Dayton area was completely shut out by Cincinnati schools. It may be the toughest district tournament in any sport. And now that everyone in cross country got their league races out of the way Saturday – including league titles for Troy’s girls, both Tipp teams, MiltonUnion’s boys and Covington’s girls. But the final three races of the year are the ones that truly matter, because each one could be the last of the year if a team underperforms. Tippecanoe graduated a state champion in Sam Wharton in the offseason, but now Allison Sinning is looking for one of her own. And then there’s the more traditional postseason sports. Seeds, brackets, survive and advance, that kind of thing. Why not start off with a team that’s gone all the way the past two seasons? The Miami East Viking volleyball team already began its quest for a third straight Division III state title on Saturday. Unlike the last two years, though, they go in not as the favorite to win it all – and even got a No. 2 seed in their own sectional. They also have the No. 3, 4, 5 and 6 teams in their half of the bracket, too, as everyone ran away from top seed Versailles this year. The most likely sectional final

Second chances Bengals beat Bills 27-24 on Nugent’s OT field goal

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — No stranger to criticism, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was able to offer Mike Nugent some advice once it became apparent how costly the kicker’s missed field goal was. “I told him, ‘You’re going to kick a field goal to win the game,’” Dalton said when the Buffalo Bills scored to force overtime. “Just be ready.” Nugent delivered, hitting a 43-yarder

Ballot Breakdown: Stanford falls, SEC sets record By the Associated Press

It was shakeup Saturday in college football. The first preseason national championship contender has been upset. A couple more unbeatens are now among the beaten. Now that the season has reached the midway point, it seems the title chase has truly begun. The first shake-up of the season produced significant changes to The Associated Press college football poll Sunday. The top four teams remained unchanged: No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Oregon, No.

3 Clemson, No. 4 Ohio State. But Stanford, which had been top-five all season, lost 27-20 at Utah and dropped eight spots to No. 13. The Cardinal’s Pac-12 and national title hopes took a serious hit, though they’ll be able to get right back in the conversation next week by beating No. 9 UCLA at home. And there’s still that big game against Oregon on Nov. 7. The Cardinal have two problems: 1) Their rugged defense has been giving up big plays as both Washington and Utah have neutralized some of Stanford’s “Party

in the Backfield” defensive front by attacking the perimeter. 2) Quarterback Kevin Hogan hasn’t taken a the big step many expected after his promising redshirt freshman season. Hogan is a good quarterback in a world with many great ones. “This is a young quarterback that has a chance to be extremely good. So I don’t worry about his confidence,” Shaw said. “He’s going to bounce back.” The story behind the story is the Pac-12 has a lot of good teams and is the only league that can make a serious claim

Troy Daily News •

Patriots knock Saints from ranks of the unbeaten FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady’s 17-yard touchdown pass to Kenbrell Thompkins with 5 seconds left gave the New England Patriots a wild 30-27 win and knocked the New Orleans Saints from the ranks of the unbeaten Sunday. It capped a 70-yard drive in which the Patriots marched downfield with no timeouts after getting the ball with 1:08 to go. The Saints (5-1) had taken a 24-23 lead with 3:29 remaining on Drew Brees’ 34-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Stills, but couldn’t put away New England. The Patriots (5-1) survived an interception by Keenan Lewis on their first snap after Garrett Hartley’s 39-yard field goal made it 27-23. PACKERS 19, RAVENS 17 BALTIMORE — Aaron Rodgers threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson, Mason Crosby kicked four field goals and Green Bay held on to beat Baltimore. Eddie Lacy rushed for 120 yards to fuel the Packers’ first road win of the season. Green Bay (3-2) took a 16-3 lead into the fourth quarter and was up 19-10 with 4 minutes left, but the Ravens (3-3) kept coming back. After Baltimore closed to 19-17 on an 18-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Dallas Clark with 2:04 remaining, Rodgers clinched the victory with a 52-yard completion to Jermichael Finley on a third-and-3 BRONCOS 35, JAGUARS 19 DENVER (AP) —

AP PHOTO New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (12) tries to elude New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan (94) as Patriots tackle Sebastian Vollmer (76) blocks in the first quarter of an NFL football game Sunday in Foxborough, Mass.

Peyton Manning threw for two scores and Knowshon Moreno ran for three to lead Denver to a tougher-than-expected victory over winless Jacksonville. The Broncos (6-0) came in as 27-point favorites, and much of the pregame hype centered on whether they’d cover the spread and when Manning would come out of the game. Neither happened. Manning finished 28 for 42 for 295 yards, but lost two fumbles and threw a pick-6 — a 59-yard interception return by Paul Posluszny that pulled the Jaguars (0-6) within 14-12 at halftime. CHIEFS 24, RAIDERS 7 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jamaal Charles ran for two touchdowns, the Kansas City defense

harassed Oakland quarterback Terrelle Pryor into throwing three second-half interceptions and the Chiefs remained unbeaten. After winning just twice last season, Kansas City (6-0) continued the second-best start in franchise history. The Chiefs won their first nine games during the 2003 season. The Chiefs piled up 10 sacks while ending a three-game skid to the Raiders (2-4), and a six-game losing streak against them at Arrowhead Stadium. Pryor threw for 216 yards and a touchdown, but his interceptions proved costly. STEELERS 19, JETS 6 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger threw a 55-yard touchdown pass

to Emmanuel Sanders, Shaun Suisham kicked four field goals, and Pittsburgh won its first game of the season. The Steelers (1-4) were off to their worst start since 1968, when they lost their first six games during a season in which they finished 2-11-1. Sunday’s victory was also the 600th in franchise history, including the postseason, as Pittsburgh became only the fourth team to reach the milestone. PANTHERS 35, VIKINGS 10 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Cam Newton threw three touchdown passes and ran for another score, and Carolina romped past Adrian Peterson and Minnesota. Peterson finished with 62 yards on 10 carries and 21 yards on three

receptions, but the Vikings (1-4) trailed the whole game and didn’t have much use after halftime for Peterson. The NFL MVP learned Friday that a 2-year-old son of his died in South Dakota of injuries from alleged abuse. 49ERS 32, CARDINALS 20 SAN FRANCISCO — Vernon Davis caught touchdown passes of 61 and 35 yards and finished with a career-best 180 yards receiving, leading San Francisco to its third straight victory. Colin Kaepernick threw for 252 yards and Frank Gore ran for 101 yards on 25 carries. Kendall Hunter ran for a 6-yard touchdown that sealed it for the 49ers (4-2) with 6:35 remaining. RAMS 38, TEXANS 13 HOUSTON — Sam Bradford threw three touchdown passes, St. Louis added a score on defense and special teams and the Rams stunned mistake-prone Houston. The Rams (3-3) were up 24-6 early in the third quarter before rookie Daren Bates returned Keshawn Martin’s fumble on a kickoff return for a touchdown. Alec Ogletree pushed the lead to 38-6 when he took an interception by T.J. Yates back 98 yards for a touchdown. Yates was in after Matt Schaub sustained an apparent right ankle injury. Schaub didn’t have a turnover after throwing six interceptions, three of them returned for touchdowns in the past three games. SEAHAWKS 20,

TITANS 13 S E AT T L E — Marshawn Lynch ran for two touchdowns and had 155 all-purpose yards, Richard Sherman came up with his third interception of the season, and Seattle finally shook Tennessee in the fourth quarter. Seattle (5-1) won its 11th straight at home despite a long list of mistakes that allowed the Titans (3-3) to hang around into the fourth. There was a careless turnover, missed defensive assignments and a comical muffed field goal attempt that led to the Titans’ only touchdown on the final play of the first half. But the Seahawks made enough plays thanks to Lynch, quarterback Russell Wilson and Sherman’s interception to remain on top of the NFC West. Lynch had TD runs of 3 yards and 1 yard. EAGLES 31, BUCCANEERS 20 TAMPA, Fla. — Nick Foles threw three touchdown passes and ran for a fourth, leading Philadelphia over winless Tampa Bay. Foles finished a long first-quarter scoring drive with a 4-yard run and threw TD passes of 12 and 36 yards to DeSean Jackson. With the injured Michael Vick active but not playing, Foles made his seventh career start and beat the Bucs (0-5) for the second time. He was 1-5 as a rookie a year ago, with that victory also coming at Tampa Bay.

Browns From page 11 backers, had a 39-yard run in the third and caught an 18-yard TD pass. “He’s not a dual threat or triple threat, he’s a quadruple threat,” Fauria said of Bush. “He does everything.” Stafford finished 25 of 43 for 248 yards. He completed eight passes to Durham, who took over as Detroit’s primary target with superstar Calvin Johnson not himself because of a balky right knee. Johnson, who missed last week’s loss at Green Bay, had just three catches for 25 yards, but the Browns were forced to keep a watchful eye on “Megatron” at all times. Weeden, making his first start since Week 2, finished 26 of 43 for 292 yards, but will be remembered for his ill-advised pass when Cleveland was driving for a possible tying touchdown. Trailing 24-17 and at Detroit’s 44 with a first down, Weeden was pressured by defensive tackle C.J. Mosley, who had his hand around the quarterback’s left ankle. But instead of throwing the ball away or taking a sack, Weeden tried to pitch the ball over fullback Chris Ogbonnaya’s head but it was picked off by Levy. It was another poor decision by Weeden, the second-year QB thrust back into the lineup after Brian Hoyer sustained a season-ending knee injury on Oct. 3. “Anytime you try underhand stuff bad things happen,” Weeden said. Stafford, on the other hand, made all the right moves in the second half. He was 15 of 21 for 165 yards and the three TDs in the final 30 minutes. At halftime, Lions coaches had their say and Durham said starting Stephen Tulloch addressed the team.

“He got up in front of us and said a few words that he needed to say like a team leader would,” Durham said. “I think it got us fired up and ready to go for the second half.” So what did Tulloch say? “Team stuff,” Durham said. It was certainly team stuff by the Lions in the second half as their defense stiffened. The Browns, who had piled up 115 yards rushing in the first, were limited to 6 total yards and no first downs in the third quarter. Cleveland gained 145 total yards after halftime, 72 after the Lions built a 14-point lead. Fauria’s 23-yard TD in the fourth period gave the Lions a 21-17 lead. Fauria got behind linebacker Craig Robertson and made a leaping catch in traffic before celebrating with a dunk over the goal post. Fauria has seven receptions this season, four for TDs. “First of all, he’s tall,” Schwartz said of Fauria, an undrafted free agent from UCLA. “But there are a lot of tall guys who aren’t good football players.” Weeden threw two short TD passes and Billy Cundiff kicked a 40-yard field goal as the Browns, using a balanced attack, scored 17 unanswered points in the second quarter to build their halftime lead. NOTES: Stafford has 13 games with at least three TD passes, breaking Bobby Layne’s team record. … Lions CB Rashean Mathis left in the first half with a groin injury and didn’t return. … Weeden threw an interception in the first half, his first in 111 attempts. … Cleveland was trying to AP PHOTO win four in a row for just the second Cleveland Browns running back Chris Ogbonnaya (25) avoids Detroit Lions cornerback Bill Bentley on a pass catch in the time since 1999. third quarter of an NFL football game Sunday in Cleveland.

Chances From page 11 his doubters by going 26 of 40 for 337 yards and three touchdowns. “It shows what we can do on offense,” Dalton said. “Hopefully, there will be some positive stuff written about us.” The three touchdowns — an 18-yarder to A.J. Green, a 20-yard shovel pass to Giovani Bernard and a 10-yarder to Marvin Jones — matched Dalton’s career best for a road game. And his 337 yards passing were the third most of his career. Nugent was relieved to have a second chance, too. “I feel like I put us in overtime in a bad way, obviously,” Nugent said. “I just hit it terrible. I think I was lucky that we could get back in a position to win.” He got help from Brandon Tate, whose 29-yard punt return to the Bills 33 set up the decisive score. Cincinnati (4-2) improved to 16-11-1 in overtime games, and snapped a six-game losing streak at Orchard Park, dating to 1985. The Bills (2-4) lost despite a gutty

outing from quarterback Thad Lewis, who started in place of injured rookie EJ Manuel. Lewis went 19 of 32 for 216 yards and two touchdowns in only his second career start, and after being promoted from the practice squad last week. “I think I did OK. But it’s never good when you don’t come out with that ‘W,’” Lewis said. “You’ve got to be confident in this league. If I was nervous in any way, shape, form or fashion, the Bengals would’ve ate us up.” Lewis, who also scored on a 3-yard run, showed no signs of wavering after he lost a fumble to open the third quarter that led to Jones’ touchdown. And Lewis didn’t seem bothered by ending the game playing on a sore right ankle. Lewis said he was diagnosed with a sprained foot, and expects to play next week at Miami. If he can’t, the Bills would have to turn to another practice squad player, Dennis Dixon, who was signed Tuesday.

Buffalo has only one other quarterback on its roster, undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel, who struggled filling in for Manuel in a 37-24 loss at Cleveland. The young and rebuilding Bills have remained competitive. Their four losses have been decided by a combined 25 points. “We’ve lost a lot of close games, and that hurts,” center Eric Wood said. “It stings that we’re so close, and we could be on the other end of some of these games. You wish you could go back and change something, but you can’t.” Lewis produced a near-stunning comeback in rallying the Bills from a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit. The comeback began five minutes into the fourth quarter, when Lewis found tight end Scott Chandler for a 22-yard touchdown pass on fourthand-8. His next touchdown pass was equally impressive. After hitting Chandler for a 25-yard gain over the middle, Lewis connected with Goodwin

on the run in the end zone, a step ahead of cornerback Terence Newman. It was an unlikely performance by a relative unknown at quarterback against a defense that ended Tom Brady’s consecutive-game touchdown streak at 52 in 13-6 win over New England last weekend. In its three previous wins this season, Cincinnati’s defense limited Brady, Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers and Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger to a combined 64 of 118 for 692 yards, with two touchdowns and four interceptions. “It ain’t always pretty, but I’ll take a win any day of the week,” Newman said. NOTES: Bills WR Stevie Johnson (back injury) did not play. … After managing just 22 catches for 199 yards and a TD in his past four games, Green finished with six catches for 103 yards and a score. … Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap had one of the team’s five sacks, and forced a fumble.

Thompson wins LPGA Malaysia KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Lexi Thompson won the LPGA Malaysia by four strokes Sunday, giving the 18year-old American her first victory of the season and second on the LPGA Tour. "Words can't even describe the feeling I have right now," Thompson said. Thompson finished at 19-under 265 at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club. She also won the 2011 Navistar LPGA Classic 2011 in Alabama. Chinese star Shanshan Feng, the Reignwood LPGA Classic winner last week in China, was second after a 67. Second-ranked Suzann Pettersen (70) and Ilhee Lee (73) tied for third at 12 under. • SAS CHAMPIONSHIP CARY, N.C. (AP) — Russ Cochran holed a 5foot putt on the final hole for his fourth straight birdie and a one-stroke victory over David Frost in the SAS Championship. The 54-year-old Cochran, also the 2010 winner at Prestonwood Country Club, closed with a 5-under 67 to finish at 17-under 199. The lefthander won the Principal Charity Classic in June in Iowa. He has five Champions Tour victories after winning once on the PGA Tour. Frost finished with a 66. He missed a short birdie putt on No. 17 and also settled for par on 18.

Kenyans Kimetto, Jeptoo win Chicago Marathon CHICAGO (AP) — Just a few years ago, Dennis Kimetto was a farmer, tending corn and cattle in Kenya. Now, he's shattering marathon records. Six weeks removed from a bout of malaria, Kimetto broke the course mark Sunday in capturing the Chicago Marathon. Compatriot Rita Jeptoo was the women's winner in the first major marathon in the United States since the Boston bombings. Kimetto finished in 2 hours, 3 minutes, 45 seconds, leading a 1-2-3 finish for Kenyan men. He beat the mark of 2:04:38 set by Ethiopia's Tsegaye Kebede last year. He pulled away from Emannuel Mutai over the last few miles and was alone with both arms raised as he crossed the line. It was his second major victory this year to go with a win at Tokyo in February — not bad for someone who not long ago was working the land in the west Kenyan town of Eldoret. He said through an interpreter that he had been running on his own when he had a chance meeting with Geoffrey Mutai, a star marathoner and fellow Kenyan. Mutai asked Kimetto to join his camp near Eldoret and train with him. Kimetto finished second in his marathon debut in Berlin last year, won Tokyo and added to his status as one of the world's best on Sunday. Before the race, there was a 30-second moment of silence to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. Mutai (2:03:52), the 2011 London winner, also beat Kebede's time but finished seven seconds off the lead. Sammy Kitwara (2:05:16) was third.

The comeback kid Keselowski finally gets a break, and a victory

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — It was just another surreal moment in this disappointing season for defending champion Brad Keselowski. He pulled away from his pit stall with his jack planted underneath his car. The jack clattered and clanged as Keselowski dragged it around the track for what should have been one race-ruining lap around Charlotte Motor Speedway. Instead, Keselowski finally caught a break. A late caution — one that ruined Jimmie Johnson’s shot at a record seventh Sprint Cup Series win at Charlotte — gave Keselowski the chance to make an electric final dash to the finish and end a 37-race losing streak Saturday night. It gave the reigning champ his first victory of the season in a year in which he’s challenged for victories, but for one rea-

son or another couldn’t close the deal. It made him ineligible to defend his championship, so Keselowski’s win was the rare victory for a non-Chase driver in a “postseason” race. Kasey Kahne at Phoenix in 2011 was the last non-Chase winner. “We’ve had speed in our cars. There’s been weeks where we’ve had the execution, not as many as we want, but we haven’t always had those pieces together, and then there’s been weeks where we’ve had the speed and execution, we’ve just had some rotten luck,” Keselowski said. “It’s just been one of AP PHOTO those years where you say, ‘How much more can they throw at you?’ I think we ran out of things for Brad Keselowski, left, is congratulated in Victory Lane by Don Hawk, of Speedway them to throw at us … with the jack and we still Motorsports Inc., after Keselowski won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series auto race Saturday at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C. found a way to win, so that was very special.”

Ballot From page 11 the first time since Oct. 30, 2005. And soon-to-be ACC team Louisville, checks in at No. 8. • MOVING UP Talk about putting a damper on an otherwise awesome day. Missouri (6-0) stayed undefeated with its first statement victory since joining the SEC, a 41-26 win against

banged-up and defense-deficient Georgia. But the Tigers lost quarterback James Franklin to a separated throwing shoulder. The senior will miss at least a week, although CBS. com reported it will be much longer. It’s too bad for the Tigers because the road to the SEC East

now goes throw Columbia, Mo. No. 22 Florida and No. 11 South Carolina play at Missouri the next two weeks. Franklin’s replacement is Maty Mauk, a redshirt freshman and bigtime recruit. The Tigers have plenty of weapons to help bring him along, but no time for growing pains.

matchup, though, looks to be a rematch with old rival Anna, who handed this Viking senior class its last postseason loss in a sectional title match … when they were freshmen. Also getting a good seed was the No. 4 Troy Trojans in the Division I sectional, but the Trojans have one big problem to fix – their Jekkyl and Hyde act when playing quality teams. At times this season, the Trojans have played up to their competi-

tion. At other times, they’ve sunk well below their competition’s level. A good example is how Troy has played Beavercreek in each of the past few weeks. The first time, the Trojans forced extra points in two of the three games, only lost each game by two and looked like they belonged at that level. The second time, they were out of control, squandered big leads and just played ugly. Should everything fall the

way of the seeds in the first two rounds, they’ll get a third chance in the sectional title game. Troy’s boys soccer team also got a No. 4 seed and has a should-be-easy path to the sectional final. The Trojans – who won their fourth straight share of their division title this past week – will likely play a pair of home games against No. 19 Middletown and No. 12 Fairborn, and they could be looking at a sectional

title matchup against No. 2 Centerville. Tippecanoe’s boys seem to have a clear path to the district tournament in Division II. They already own wins over five of the six teams in their sectional, and the sixth team, Greenville, doesn’t own a win over anyone this season. In Division III, No. 5 Bethel has played through a heavy final two weeks of the regular season to prepare for this, and the Bees are hoping for a rematch against No. 4 Greeneview in the sectional final – which was a better option that top seeds Catholic Central, Yellow Springs and Franklin Monroe. Two more county teams having solid seasons – No. 7 Troy Christian and No. 11 Miami East – will meet Wednesday night in the first round. And on the girls soccer side in Division III, three area teams that beat each other up – Lehman, Troy Christian and Miami East – got the top three seeds in the sectional bracket. The Eagles, a regional finalist last season, got the No. 2 seed and have a decent draw, while No. 3 Miami East is seeking a potentional rematch with top-seeded Lehman. The Vikings beat the Cavaliers earlier this season – Lehman’s only loss on the year. But the Cavs lost to the Vikings in the regular season last year and then beat them in the postseason. No matter what, barring any upsets, that will be the sectional final to watch. In Division II, Tippecanoe’s girls got a No. 4 seed despite going unbeaten this season. And instead of dealing with No. 1 Alter or No. 3 Bellbrook, the Red Devils chose a bye and a potential sectional final matchup with No. 2 Carroll. None of the options seem all that appealing, really, in that stacked bracket. And in Division I, the Troy Trojans and rival Piqua Indians both ended up in the same sectional bracket. No. 10 Troy goes in with two wins in a row and will face No. 7 Fairborn – a team that only beat the Trojans 4-3 earlier this year. No. 9 Piqua, however, goes in with two straight losses – one to Troy and the other to Lehman – and will likely get bounced by No. 3 Beavercreek in the second round. Should Troy get past the first round, the path to the sectional final is wide open – but with Beavercreek waiting there, in all likelihood. Then again, anything can happen now. The regular season is always just, well, regular. The postseason is where the fun really happens. Josh Brown is the Sports Editor of the Troy Daily News. Email him at jbrown@civitasmedia. com.
