TIPP CITY — The man responsible for the New Carlisle Federal Savings Bank robbery on Sept. 13 in Tipp City has been identified. With the help of Montgomery County Sheriff ’s Office near Springfield, Ill., Owosso Police Department in Owosso, Mich., and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Tipp City Police have named the robber as 49-year-old Carl F. Kieffer. Although Kieffer’s last known address is Spokane, Wash., police believe he is still in the eastern third of the country.

At 10:35 a.m. Sept. 13, police received a call of a robbery in progress at New Carlisle Federal Savings Bank, 5129 S. County Road 25A. According to reports, the robber came in and handed the teller a $10 bill and asked for 10 one’s in exchange. When the teller came back, he displayed a written note on a yellow window envelope stating he had a gun and requesting specific denominations in cash. After getting the desired money, the suspect told the teller to remain calm and walk to the restroom. When she complied, he walked quickly out of the bank and escaped in a Dodge Durango, parked at Hock’s Pharmacy next door, with a total

of $1,950 in $100 and $50 bills. On Sept. 24, Tipp police were contacted by the Montgomery County Illinois Sheriff’s Office. The detective told Tipp police that a bank robbery had occurred in Farmersville, Ill., with a similar pattern as the one at the New Carlisle bank, including the suspect’s demeanor and size, shoes and use of written note. When the crime lab report in Illinois came back, it determined the fingerprint from the note written in the Farmersville robbery belonged to Kieffer, according to reports. Through an Internet search, Tipp police matched Kieffer’s pictures with surveillance videos from Hock’s Pharmacy the day of the Tipp

robbery. Tipp police also learned of an FBI investigation into a bank robbery in Lusk, Wyo., with images of Kieffer as its suspect. On Oct. 11, Kieffer was issued an arrest warrant for aggravated robbery. According to Tipp police, Kieffer’s whereabouts are unknown and he is still considered a dangerous individual. He is described as a tall, thin man with a prominent mole on the left side of his cheek near his nose. Police urge the public to call 9-1-1 immediately if they see someone they believe to be Kieffer.

Mary Kadel, left, and Gerri Nichols arrange several art pieces including water color, needle felting, painted acrylic gourds and herb salt for a fine arts and crafts sale this weekend. The event, which is Friday and Saturday, features work of artists throughout the area and will be hosted at the Staunton Grange on North Market Street in Troy.

TROY — The Country Workshop Artists enjoy spending time together. But they enjoys giving back to the community even more. “We’re not just a group of women that get together and have a good time, there’s also a purpose,” said Martha Cain, president of the group. Even with the Country Workshop Artists Biennial Sale of Fine Arts and Fine Crafts starting up this weekend, Cain wanted the main emphasis to be on the con-

tributions the group has given to the community over the course of its 54-year history. “We’ve continued to grow, learn and create art and support the community arts programs in the area,” Cain explained. “We’ve donated money for books for the library, we’ve provided equipment to Hayner, we’ve donated money for different arts programs in the area, like the sculptures on the square — that sort of thing. “Another critical thing we do is we provide $500 scholarship for a student every year, who plans on studying fine arts. We are hoping to expand that, but at this time

it’s for Troy. We’ve donated over $14,000 toward scholarships — and that’s money that comes primarily from this sale.” The sale runs from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday at Staunton Grange on North Market St. in Troy. Day two will be held at the same location and will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is no admission fee for the event. The sale will include a wide variety of art, including water color and oil paintings, pottery, needle work, weaving, jewelry and more. “First and foremost, I think if See BACK | 2

Concord Township residents support no-solicitation policy Melanie Yingst

Staff Writer myingst@civitasmedia.com

CONCORD TWP. — Two residents of Concord Township spoke out and gave their support of the township pursuing a non-solicitation policy based on their experience with aggressive solicitors, as well as a concern for their safety. The township trustees’ started researching the various policies

in place in townships around Ohio since several residents complained of a man selling magazines in the township and the sheriff’s office was unable to cite the man. Trustee Tom Mercer has been researching several policies in place in townships around the state. Mercer said he was in favor of forgoing the application process for “transient vendors” to apply for 90 day permits and to totally out-

law the act of for-profit solicitation entirely for the township. “We can have a resolution adopted, and I place that businesses, or ‘transient vendors’ would be prohibited entirely,” Mercer said. “Personally, I’d like to prohibit all transient vendors.” Mercer noted that non-profit groups, religious groups and other tax exempt organizations do not fall in the no solitictation policy even if one was in place.

If the resolution for no solicitation is in place, it would prohibit for-profit business from going door-to-door and face a possible misdemeanor fine. Groups such as Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts and religious groups still would be allowed to canvass neighborhoods under state of Ohio law. Townships are unable to exclude the non-profit groups.

TROY — The Troy City Schools Board of Education reviewed what types of projects the district’s 1.1-mills permanent improvement levy has been used for building improvements during the last four years at its regular board meeting Monday. The district is seeking a renewal of the five-year 1.1-mills capital improvement levy, which raises up to $685,000 per year for the maintenance and capital projects such as roofs, painting and parking lot upgrades throughout the district’s nine buildings and

House GOP counter to Senate debt plan in disarray

TROY — A man suffered serious injuries after falling through the roof of a Troy business Tuesday morning. Troy emergency crews were called to Gokoh Corporation at 1280 Archer Drive around 8:28 a.m. Tuesday for a man who fell about 25 feet onto a concrete floor, according to Troy Police Department Captain Joe Long. CareFlight was called to respond, but could not fly because of weather conditions. The victim, 22-year-old Henry Fernandez of Dayton, was then transported by Troy medics to Miami Valley Hospital for treatment. A hospital spokesperson confirmed Tuesday that Fernandez is a patient at

From page 1 said he encourages Mercer to continue to pursue the no solicitation policy with the township’s legal council. Whidden questioned how the township would effectively communicate the policy once it was in place. Trustee Sue Campbell said the policy was “best for all of us” due to the township not having business hours to accept applications for vendors. “It’s easier to have all or none,” Campbell said. Mercer said he would meet with the county’s prosecutor to draft a resolution for the future and reminded the community it make take several months to enforce and approve. Mercer said the general consensus is that prohibit the solicitation in its entirety due

MVH, however no patient condition was available. Steve Kershner, general manager for Gokoh Corp., a foundry supply business, said the Fernandez was part of a roofing crew working to repair leaks on the company’s roof. He said it was the second day the crew had been on the roof and that they were tearing off old shingles and replacing some rotten wood. Kershner said he is not sure how the accident occurred, but said Fernandez was wearing a safety harness. Kershner said where the man landed might of helped save his life, as he landed on some folded up sandbags. He said just a few feet away was a rack with steel rods coming out of it. Kershner said medics told him Fernandez had suffered at least a broken leg. “He was in a lot of pain,” Kershner said. “You could tell he was in excruciating pain and we felt very bad for his suffering.” Kershner said he knows the man will be unable to work for some time following the fall, and that he and other Gokoh employees will be sending a card and taking up a donation to help him and his family. “It was just a bad ordeal,” Kershner said.

to safety issues and hoped the policy would help with that area. Miami County Sheriff’s Office deputy Tom Wheeler said daytime burglaries were on the rise and no solicitation policies would help eleminate those knocking on the doors to see if home owners were home during the day. “It’s non stop right now,” Wheeler said. “We get calls all the time and we politely tell them to move on.” “Hopefully we can have something soon,” Mercer said. Phyllis Moore, a resident of the Shenandoah subdivision, said she was personally approached by a man canvassing her neighborhood this summer and fully supports the township trustees going

forward with a resolution to ban “transient” solicitors in the township. Warren Heller, a resident of Laural Creek, said the season of solicitation is never ending in his neighborhood and asked if a no-solicitation sign could go up in his neighborhood. Trustee Tom Mercer said no signs would be allowed, but he would be contacting the township’s legal council to draft a no-solicitation policy to be reviewed in the future. Mercer encouraged Heller to place his own notice on his door of his property to deter solicitors before a policy would be in place. “We want it, let’s move forward,” Mercer said.

you’re interested in purchasing art, then this is a wonderful local resource,” Cain said. “Many of our artists and members of the workshop are well-known in this area. It’s actually primarily area artists, but we do have a couple artists from New York and California.” The sale happens every two years in order to help the group pick the best art possible. During the selection process, the group makes their decisions based on what will give the sale the most balance. “We do it every two years because it gives us time to make things, do our art, and to identify outside artists that we think are appropriate,” Cain explained. “This is a juried arts and crafts sale, which means

it’s not just everybody that participates. As a group of country workshop artists, we decide the work that is appropriate for what we’re doing. We want it to be good quality art, something that you don’t see everywhere. We don’t want to have all of one thing. We want it to be a good balance of work.” The country workshop began in 1959, and was organized by a group of women who wished to share their common interest in art. It has stood the test of time and is still going strong to this day. The group features over 30 members currently. This year’s sale will feature the works of 75 artists from throughout the midwest.

first, then the integrity of the buildings” is how the district prioritizes its list of capital improvement projects. Herman noted the Van Cleve Sixth Grade building is the district’s oldest building, which will be celebrating its 100th year in 2014. In other news, Herman highlighted pending changes to the state’s executive session in reference to business/school district relations. Also, changes from the state may also include non-routine use of the schools’ buses may change at the state level. Herman said that may affect the district’s current policy of allowing the district’s buses being used for community use such as Troy Strawberry Festival, transporting senior citizens to away football games and other events. Herman said the state regulations could “really change how we do things” in regard to community use of the district’s buses. Other state policy changes include legislation on allowing the participation of home school students in extracurricu-

lar activities and athletics beginning Oct. 1. According to the Ohio Department of Education, recent legislation allows home-school students the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities in public schools. An “extracurricular activity” is a pupil activity program that is run by a school or school district and is not included in a graded course of study. Activities include any offered at the school that the student would attend if enrolled in the public school district the family resides. If the school district does not offer a particular activity, then the student may request to participate in another district’s program. The superintendent of the other school district may choose to allow the student to participate as an out-of-district student. Home-educated students must meet the same nonacademic and financial requirements as any other student participating in the activity. Fees and ability in sports, where there are cuts, apply. President Doug Trostlesaid the recent change could cause confusion with legal liability for transportation of nonstudents. Also Trostle said the “recruiting process” for athletics could

come in to question as well. Vice-president Stephen Lucas also said the changes were “a slippery slope” and could see future problems with “holes in the policy.” FIVE YEAR FORECAST Jeff Price, treasurer, reported the district’s five year forecast. Price said the county auditor met with the county school treasurers and reported pockets of areas will see property values drop 15-18 percent while farm ground values will rise. An increase in filing of reappraisals at the county auditor’s office has also increased as well. Projected earned income tax is expected to increase 2 percent. Price said July 2013’s collection was “favorable” and increased above projections. Price said the October collection has not been received by the district yet. The highlights from the expenditures for the district includes the employee’s retirement and insurance benefits are expected to increase in the five-year period by 7.5 percent, mostly due to health insurance costs. “The biggest worry is health insurance,” Price said. Salary and benefits make up approximately 78.4 percent of the dis-

trict’s budget, according to Price. The district is expected to run a deficit in fiscal year 2017 after all cash reserves have been exhausted, according to the five year forecast. The district will remain in the positive in 2014 with $6.7 million; 2015 with $5.2 million and have $2.4 million in cash reserves through 2016 . The district will begin a negative balance in fiscal year 2017 with a project $1.8 million deficit. In 2018, the projected deficit is expected to grow to $7.8 million in the negative, according to the five year forecast. In other financial news, the board approved to authorize the purchase of competitive retail electric service from the lowest bidder submitted to the district’s Southwestern Ohio E d u c at i o n Purchasing Council from July 2014 and ending no later than May 2017. Price said the resolution is to take advantage of lower electricity costs and the purchasing group is able to bid electric companies to hedge favorable electric rates at this time. “Rates have dropped and it could be attractive right now,” Price said.

Superintendent Eric Herman gave several examples of what type of projects the district uses with the capital improvement funds. For example, the bulk of the 2013 capital improvement projects have been the Troy Junior High School’s Ferguson Drive loop and south lot and Forest Elementary parking lot and playground. The paving projects were completed by Ticon Paving Inc. for $136,922. A partial roof replacement at Concord Elementary School recently cost $245,000. Herman said “safety

TIPP CITY — Installation is continuing on traffic poles and signals in downtown Tipp City. The city received a shipment of lights and poles, and the electrical contractor has installed pull string in the conduits. Now, Tipp City electric is installing the lights on the traffic signal poles. Also being installed are trees between First and Third streets. The trees will be placed in the tree wells that are in the walk area, according to

utilities director Christy Butera. Sidewalk and brick paver base installation is continuing between Fourth Street and the railroad. The pavers will be located at each drive approach and alley access, at the corner of each intersection and right behind the curb, according to Butera. Ashphalt is expected to start this week. Also starting this week is installation of an electric car charging station on North Third Street adjacent to the old municipal building. Electric

car chargers already are installed at Menards on Weller Drive and the government center on Garber Drive. The chargers were purchased through a grant from Clean Fuels Ohio. They came from Signature Controls and cost $3,020 each. The whole project with installation will cost $22,000, of which Clean Fuels will reimburse the city for up to $11,000, according to Butera. Curb installation and concrete work between First and Fourth Streets was completed last week.

Costumed ghost tours offered downtown TROY — On Oct. 25-26 take a ghostly tour of downtown Troy with costumed storytellers. Learn the haunted history inside some of your favorite downtown shops and restaurants. This tour changes every year so if you think you’ve seen it once, come get the chills once again. Tours last approximately one hour and are appropriate for ages 10 and up, but be prepared for a scare or two along the way. All proceeds benefit Colin’s Service

Dog Project. Colin is a young boy from Troy who was diagnosed with autism when he was 3 years old. He also suffers from Sensory Integration Disorder, speech delay, anxiety and depression. A service dog will significantly improve his quality of life, it is believed. The cost of the event is $10 per person. Tours begin in downtown Troy in the southwest quadrant at the hearse.

I had to put us on Medicade and in addition to my wife, lost my home, my car, my computer, my books and my tools.

PERSPECTIVE

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Steubenville Herald-Star A few thoughts on the shutdown of the federal government: First off, we agree something has to be done beyond extending the debt limit every six months or once a year to avert the United States eventually reaching a Greece-style financial crisis. Second, neither side has the high road, nor the time, to be bickering and looking for political victory. The executive branch — the White House — does have to respond with something beyond “we won’t negotiate” when the people’s house — Congress — has a problem with the way things are going. Congress also needs to recognize that “My way or the highway” doesn’t work when the gamesmanship is with the standing of the nation in the world’s eye. A default on debt would be a disaster, and it does not solve the avertable — if painfully so — crisis looming beyond the next political kicking of the can down the road. With approval ratings possibly in the negative numbers for Congress and falling for the president, it’s time for Washington to wake up and act before what little faith people have in their government is gone. The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction needs to move quickly to determine what’s at the root of repeated lapses by Ohio prison guards as well as their supervisors. The lapses, which include possible log-rigging and cover-ups in two separate prisons, came to light after two recent high-profile prisoner deaths. The most recent report by the state prison system concerns the apparent September suicide of Ariel Castro, the notorious Cleveland kidnapper and rapist who was one month into a 1,000year sentence. His death followed the August suicide of condemned murderer Billy Slagle, who hung himself at Chillicothe Correctional Institution just days before his execution. Both Slagle and Castro were supposed to be checked every 30 minutes, but were not. Supervisors failed to verify that rounds had been made and, as with the Slagle case, Castro’s guards are accused of falsifying the prison logs to cover up their failure to monitor the prisoner. They are on paid administrative leave, pending a full investigation. Such parallel failures at two different prisons suggest systemic problems in Ohio’s prisons. Corrections Director Gary Mohr must root out it out. He has promised to accept the latest report’s recommendations, among them, the common-sense notion that better supervision is needed. The Columbus Dispatch America’s war in Afghanistan entered its 13th year last week, and chances are few Americans noticed — no more than most Americans have taken much notice of the war for many years. It’s easy to understand why: Americans are weary to the bone of fighting seemingly fruitless wars in far-distant lands populated mainly by people of radically different cultures who don’t much like the West. What started out as an effort to punish those responsible for 9/11 has turned into an interminable and exhausting slog, even though it finally did bring justice to Osama bin Laden, the architect of the atrocity that started it all. The loss of more than 2,100 American lives in Afghanistan and the mind-numbing waste of American treasure — lost to corruption, incompetence and bottomless chaos — is overwhelming. But here’s the thing no one should forget about Afghanistan: American soldiers are still there — 54,000 of them. Some Americans are in a better position than others to influence the nation’s policy in Afghanistan and elsewhere. But every American can and should honor, thank and support the men and women still serving.

Republicans have let down this country Call it the Republican betrayal. But understand first that, for all the faults that inevitably accompany politics, people in that party have stood for many good things. They actually like the Constitution. They believe in limits to government that otherwise is sure to inflict oppression and unintended penalties on people. They get it that some things are worth preserving in society, especially in an exceptional society. So Republicans graciously fought back against the worst of the officeholding Democrats, meaning most of them, officials who once called themselves “liberals” until they so tarnished that designation that they began calling themselves “progressives” instead. “Liberalism” once indicated something noble. It has as its root the Latin word “liber,” meaning free, and the liberals who emerged from the Enlightenment put the principle of freedom first as they simultaneously struggled for principled rationality. Timothy Ferris, in an outstanding 2010 book, “The Science of Liberty,” says the scientific revolution from that 17th- and 18th-century era had a mate — political revolution — and the result was spreading freedom and rights and the ultimate rescue of “bil-

lions from poverty, ignorance, fear and they were with overreaching maneuan early grave.” He is all for liberalism vers on Obamacare funding and then in the old sense, but not for progres- on debt. And it is true that the other sivism and leftism that “put the force side has reacted with huffing, puffof government behind efforts to create ing, blow-your-house-down retaliation, greater political and economic equality instead of anything halfway adult. Still, even if personal freedoms are abridged anyone with any sense would know in the process.” how this would be portrayed, Ferris, who has his comwhat the public reaction would plaints about conservatives, be and what the consequences too, grasps the worst of progreswould be.

of Congress could have let the program make its own case that it was outlandish, and the overreaching crowd among the rank-and-file could have relaxed. The Senate could maybe have been won, and then there would have been golden chances for meaningful health-care reform, addressing a potentially calamitous debt and beginning to rein in other egregious excesses of progressives that threaten our future. The worst of it is when you turn on the radio and hear a Republican House member saying he is not worried about people blaming the GOP for an irresponsible shutdown because his district is safe. He’s OK. Well, maybe he is, but the country is not. Some of us were counting on the Republicans as our most likely salvation, and they have let us down even if some are serving their own careers well. Yes, this country has time and again overcome our worst afflictions, and you’ve got to believe we will again. But we now will have to also overcome a GOP betrayal.

Ohio police suspend 63 officers over deadly chase A review of a deadly police chase in Cleveland nearly a year ago has led to suspensions for 63 patrol officers who violated orders and department rules, the city’s police chief said Tuesday. A fleeing driver and passenger were killed when officers fired 137 shots at them in the 23-minute chase that involved five dozen cruisers and wove through residential neighborhoods before ending in gunfire. Police Chief Michael McGrath said the suspensions were the result of disciplinary hearings, and violations ranged from insubordination to driving too fast during the chase. The hearings did not involve any of the officers involved in the shooting because a county grand jury is investigating possible criminal wrongdoing among the 13 officers who fired their weapons. No weapon

or shell casings were found in the fleeing car. An initial review of the chase found 75 patrol officers violated orders, but the disciplinary hearings reduced that number to 64 officers. All but one received a suspension, with the longest being 10 days, McGrath said. None of the violations was so serious it warranted termination. Some of the officers received a written warning. Police previously announced punishments for 12 supervisors stemming from the chase. One sergeant was fired. A captain and lieutenant were demoted, and nine sergeants were suspended. The nighttime chase began last November when an officer thought he heard a gunshot from a car speeding by the police station in downtown Cleveland.

be sent home with a slip of paper indicating their account balance. The online system should be up and running sometime within the next month. Accounts also will be able to keep track of the students that receive school lunches at a reduced price. The money that was used to fund the system, called Point of Sale, came from a grant by the state that Bethel applied for last year, so no extra money is being spent on the system. The new school lunch prices are $2.50 for elementary students and $2.75 for middle school and high school students. According to Reif, the change from the old system to Point of Sale was long overdue for Bethel.

“Bethel was one of the few schools in the area that had not switched to this new system,” she said. For more information, contact Lisa Reif at (937) 8459414, Ext. 3108.

A parking lot attendant thought it might have been a car backfire, a theory endorsed by the driver’s family. The officer jumped into his patrol car and radioed for help. The chase went through neighborhoods, onto Interstate 90, and eventually ended in East Cleveland. Driver Timothy Russell, 43, was shot 23 times and passenger Malissa Williams, 30, was shot 24 times. Police say they don’t know why Russell didn’t stop. He had a criminal record including convictions for receiving stolen property and robbery. Williams had convictions for drug-related charges and attempted abduction. McGrath said Tuesday that some of the officers continued the chase after being told to stop because they thought an officer was in

trouble. He said the officers who were disciplined were honest and professional during the review process. He also said police supervisors failed to take charge of the chase and allowed it to escalate. The union has said the shootings were justified because the driver tried to ram an officer.

BETHEL TOWNSHIP — Bethel Local Schools have changed to a new system of payment for lunches to make it easier for parents and students. The previous system involved prepaid tickets that could only be purchased in five day periods. These tickets would not include the price of any a la carte items – only the basic lunch. The students would then bring money in with them in the morning in order to purchase the tickets for that particular week. Soon, parents can go online and put money directly on to their child’s account. Students

also can bring in a check or money to put directly on to their account. Also, students will now use an ID number to access and use their lunch account. “It’s just going to be much easier to use for the parents and students,” said Lisa Reif from the Food Service Department at Bethel. At this time, the system is not accessible online – students can still bring a check or money in to add to their account, however. Parents also will be able to look at what their child is eating and how much is left on their account. For now, the students will be told by the lunch cashiers when the money on their account is low. Elementary students will

WEST MILTON — Dr. Steven Pierson has brought his dental practice to West Milton. West Milton Family Dental opened in September at 16 N. Miami St. in the office that formerly housed Dr. Douglas Randolph’s dental practice prior to his retirement a few years ago. Dr. Pierson was part of a larger practice in Tipp City for the past seven years, but was interested in starting his own practice. “This space was vacant and ready to move into,” Dr. Pierson said. “We started remodeling in June and we now have brand new, state-ofthe-art equipment.” New equipment includes digital X-rays, sterilization center, laser cavity detection instrument, digital records and even televisions that stream movies in the treatment rooms. Dr. Pierson is a Michigan native. He graduated with honors from Indiana Wesleyan University with a bachelor’s degree in biology. Pierson then earned a doctorate of dental surgery from Indiana University School of Dentistry, where he met his wife, Kandi, who is from the Columbus area. Kandi Pierson was going to school to be an elementary teacher. Before having children, she taught first, second and fourth grade. After graduation, the cou-

ple decided to settle in Tipp City due to its small town appeal. They are currently raising children Benjamin, 5, and Natalie, 1, and they are members of Ginghamsburg Church. “Living in Buckeye country is fun,” Pierson said. “I always have interesting conversations with Buckeye fans.” Pierson noted his home has a “house divided” flag that is half Michigan and half Ohio State, to properly represent. Dr. Pierson said he found himself studying in the dental field because he enjoys helping people. His parents were medical missionaries for more than 20 years in Sierra Leone, a country in West Africa. Pierson lived there for six years during his childhood. Since becoming a dentist, he has taken several short- term dental mission trips to South America and

the Caribbean. He wants to make dentistry available — and non-intimidating to the community as well. “I think some people look at going to the dentist as a scary and vulnerable situation, so I really wanted to focus on providing a comfortable atmosphere for my patients while meeting their needs at the same time,” he said. Pierson said his primary focus is education and prevention, not just treatment. “We first focus on trying to prevent problems and maintaining a healthy mouth. By educating people about their dental health, we help them lower their risk for developing future problems. If we just fix a person’s teeth without addressing the underlying causes, that person will continue to need dental treatment year after year,” Pierson said. Dr. Pierson also is working

with Milton-Union Athletic Director Tom Koogler to provide mouth guards for student athletes in contact sports. The guards would be custom fit to the athletes, and provided at no charge to the student or school. “Athletic mouth guards are important to prevent injuries and concussions,” Pierson said. He is a member of the American Dental Association, Ohio Dental Association, Western Ohio Dental Society, American Academy of General Dentistry and the Christian Dental Society. West Milton Family Dental offers a variety of dental services and accepts most major dental insurance.

Troy arson Cellphone sex offender sentenced suspect seeks to withdraw guilty pleas Will E Sanders

TROY — A convicted arsonist allegedly responsible for fire at a Troy apartment building in May wants withdraw his formerly entered pleas of guilty in the case. But on Tuesday a hearing scheduled for the suspect, Michael D. LeGrant, 26, of Troy, charged with two counts of aggravated arson, was continued after his attorney filed a motion to withdraw himself from the case. According to that motion, attorney Paul Princi requested to be withdrawn from the case after LeGrant told the lawyer he did not fully understand his constitutional rights when he entered the guilty pleas to the arson charges at a change of plea hearing Aug. 14. In a memorandum filed with the court, Prince stated the prosecutor’s office plans on calling Princi as a witness at LeGrant’s hearing where he seeks to withdraw his guilty pleas. On May 22 authorities allege that LeGrant intentionally set a blaze at 32 Foss Way, Troy. As a result of that fire three people were forced to jump from a second-story window and four others had to be rescued by the fire department. Those three residents who jumped were transported to the hospital with injuries, but they all fully recovered. Authorities said LeGrant deliberately set the fire and that the blaze was directed toward one resident who lived at the building. LeGrant was originally charged with five counts of aggravated arson, but pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated arson — one charge is a second-degree felony and the other a first-degree felony. The first-degree felony count represents harm to people and the lesser felony count involves the damage to the structure. He faces nearly two decades in prison, in addition to any fines or restitution ordered in the case. Damage to the structure was estimated at $250,000 and an additional $60,000 for contents. LeGrant remains jailed on a $100,000 bond. In a strange turn of events over the weekend, the site of the arson at 32 Foss Way caught fire again after a fire started in the basement. At the time the building was being prepped for demolition by the owner.

Iran presents nuclear proposals at Geneva talks GENEVA (AP) — Declaring that Iran no longer wants to “walk in the dark” of international isolation, Iranian negotiators put forward what they called a potential breakthrough plan Tuesday at the long-stalled talks on easing fears that Tehran wants atomic arms. Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi said the Iranian plan’s formal name was “An End to the Unnecessary Crisis and a Beginning for Fresh Horizons.” He described it as having many new ideas but added negotiators had agreed to keep the details confidential during the morning bargaining session. “We think that the proposal we have made has the capacity to make a breakthrough,” he told reporters. Alluding to the international pressure over Iran’s nuclear program that has driven the country into

near-pariah status, he said: “We no longer want to walk in the dark and uncertainty and have doubts about the future.” Iran’s version of a grand bargain is for painful international sanctions to be lifted in exchange for possible concessions it had been previously unwilling to consider, such as increased monitoring and scaling back on uranium enrichment — a potential path to nuclear arms and the centerpiece of the impasse with the West. A member of one of the delegations meeting with Iran told The Associated Press the plan offered reductions in both the levels of uranium enrichment being conducted by Iran and the number of centrifuges doing the enrichment — both key demands from the six nations with Iran at the negotiating table. He demanded anonymity because he was not authorized to divulge

details. European Union official Michael Mann said Iran’s PowerPoint presentation, presented by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, lasted about one hour. The session resumed in mid-afternoon and a U.S. State Department official said the six powers were

looking at further details of the Iranian presentation. The official demanded anonymity because she was not authorized to divulge details of the closed meeting. Iran’s uranium enrichment program is at the core of the six world powers’ concerns. Iran now has more than 10,000

centrifuges churning out enriched uranium, which can be used either to power reactors or as the fissile core of a nuclear bomb. Iran has long insisted it does not want nuclear arms — a claim the U.S. and its allies have been skeptical about — but has resisted international attempts to verify its aims.

Suspect sentenced in sexting case

TROY — A common pleas court judge handed down a jail sentence of 30 days against a Troy man convicted of sending texts and pictures of an inappropriate nature to a juvenile female. Michael E. Epley, 27, pleaded no contest and was found guilty of felony disseminating matter harmful to juveniles in August at a court hearing and on Tuesday, in addition to the jail sentence, was ordered to serve two years on community control sanctions. Epley did not speak at the hearing, but Judge Robert Lindeman said the age of the victim, who was 13, was “concerning” before handing down the sentence. Lindeman warned Epley that if he does not comply with the terms of his probation he will sentence him to 11 months in prison. Prosecutors said Epley sent the inappropriate material the juvenile March 3, which is when authorities first began investigating the case. While his charge was sexual in nature, his case did not qualify him to be labeled as a sex offender. Originally, Epley was charged with the second-degree felony of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material or performance.

ditions of his probation he will be sentenced to 11 months in prison. According to court and police documents the mother of the 15-year-old victim found Ferryman’s cell phone underneath a couch cushion. Upon reviewing the phone the mother found an illicit video of her daughter on Ferryman’s phone. When the mother of the victim found the phone she contacted the Piqua Police Department, at which point in time an investigation began, police records show. Police say the victim was a willingly participant in the video.

TROY — An accidental discovery of a cell phone underneath a couch cushion by the mother of a juvenile girl has resulted in a Piqua man being sentenced to a 30-day jail sentence and a two-year term of probation. Travis K. Ferryman, 24, was convicted of the fifth-degree felony illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material or performance Aug. 11 after he was found to be in possession of a video of a nude and under-aged female on his cell phone that he accidentally

left at the victim’s house. The mother of the victim later found the phone in the couch, searched its contents and discovered the video before contacting the police. At his sentencing hearing, Ferryman was also labeled as a tier I sex offender, which requires him to annually register as such in the county where he lives, works or receives an education for the next 15 years. He faced up to one year in prison and a $2,500 fine. Ferryman did not address the court at the hearing. The judge said if Ferryman breaks the con-

BY FRANCES DRAKE

For Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Think before you speak today, because your first impulse is to shoot from the hip. You don't want to blurt something out and later regret it, do you? Easy does it. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is definitely a restless day for you. Something going on behind the scenes might make you agitated or anxious for some reason. Try to chill out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might meet a real character today. However, what is more likely is that a female acquaintance you know will do or say something that shocks you. ("Whaaat?") CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be diplomatic when talking to authority figures today, because someone might impulsively say something that is regrettable. If you feel insulted or affronted, don't quit your day job. Sleep on it. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Travel plans might be canceled or delayed today. Ditto for plans related to higher education. Everything is a crapshoot today! VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Check your bank account today, because this is an unpredictable day for shared property, shared income, taxes, debt and inheritances. Something could go south in a New York minute. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Partners or close friends will surprise you today by saying or doing something unexpected. Then, possibly, a minor argument will break out. Whatever happens will be swift and then over. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Interruptions to your daily routine are likely today. At work you might suffer from computer crashes, power outages, staff shortages and canceled meetings. Just another day in paradise. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Parents should be vigilant about their children today, because this is an accident-prone day for your kids. Know where they are at all times. Be especially careful about fire and electrical matters. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your home routine will be interrupted today. Small appliances might break down; minor breakages could occur. Family arguments may break out, and unexpected company might knock at your door. (Yikes!) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is an accident-prone day for you, so pay attention to everything you say and do. Slow down and take it easy. Keep your eyes open. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Watch your finances today. You might find money; you might lose money. Similarly, your possessions might be stolen, lost or broken. Be vigilant! YOU BORN TODAY You can be quiet and unassuming, or a daredevil. One thing is certain: You are self-confident. You are outrageous when you become unrestrained over issues about which you are passionate. Generally, however, you are considerate and prudent -- we can take you anywhere. This year will be a social, pleasant year in which all your relationships will improve. Enjoy! Birthdate of: Rick Mercer, comedian; Erin Karpluk, actress; Sharon Leal, actress.

House GOP counter to Senate debt plan in disarray WASHINGTON (AP) — Their backs against the wall, House GOP leaders scrambled Tuesday to forge a plan to counter an emerging bipartisan Senate deal to reopen the government and forestall a default on U.S. obligations. But the effort fell into disarray amid grumbling by party conservatives and it was unclear whether GOP leaders could keep it afloat — even as the potential peril to the U.S. economy deepened with a debt deadline less than two days away. Though Republicans appeared to back off earlier demands for spending cuts as a condition of raising the government’s borrowing cap, the partisan standoff between Democrats and House Republicans continued with little certainty over how Congress would bring about the end to the crises. Jittery investors sent stocks modestly lower. It was not clear whether the House GOP plan could pass the chamber. The House measure mirrors in several respects a Senate plan that has generally taken shape. The House would suspend a new tax on medical devices for two years and take away the federal government’s health care contributions to lawmakers and top administration officials. It would also fund the government through Jan. 15 and give Treasury the ability to borrow normally through Feb. 7, provisions embraced by Senate leaders in both parties. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said he’s “trying to find a path forward” but that “there have been no decisions about exactly what we will do.” He told a news conference, “There are a lot of opinions about what direction to go.” GOP leaders went behind closed doors to massage the plan in hopes of a vote later Tuesday.

AP Photo Chris and April Vannoy, of Woodbridge, Va., hold hands during a rally at the National World War II Memorial, Tuesday in Washington, held by the Military Coalition, a coalition of 33 of the leading veterans and uniformed services organizations, to demand an end to the partial government shutdown. April is currently serving the the Navy and Chris is going to school full and served in the Army. The federal government remains partially shut down and faces a first-ever default between Oct. 17 and the end of the month.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., involved in negotiations with Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, blasted the House plan as a blatant attack on bipartisanship. Senate talks appeared on hold as Boehner weighed his next move. “It can’t pass the Senate and it won’t pass the Senate,” Reid said. That sparked an angry response from Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who accused Reid of “piling on” and urged him to consider the House effort as a goodfaith offer. “We know you have the upper hand,” McCain said. “Isn’t it time that we find

Brokers simplify, confuse health exchange Shopping The Associated Press

This month’s glitch-filled rollout of the health insurance marketplaces created by federal law is a business opportunity for brokers and agents, but regulators warn that it also opened the door for those who would seek to line their pockets by misleading consumers. New Hampshire’s insurance commissioner sent a cease-and-desist letter last week to an Arizona company he accused of building a website to mislead health care shoppers into thinking it was the official marketplace. The site was taken down Friday. Regulators in Washington state and Pennsylvania also have told agents to change websites that seemed likely to convince consumers they were connecting to government-run sites. Connecticut’s insurance department warned agents and brokers this summer that it will take action against agents who mislead consumers or design sites to replicate the state-run exchange. An organization run by the top insurance regulators in each state recently issued an alert on the potential for scams related to the marketplaces. The National Association of Insurance Commissioners advised consumers that bogus sites have been spotted and warned people to beware of unsolicited calls by people claiming they need personal information to help them enroll in

insurance. Not all insurance agents are licensed to sell insurance on the exchanges, and buying a policy from one of them could leave consumers without the tax subsidies that make the health insurance affordable. Consumers who seek an insurance professional’s help are urged to make sure they know who they’re dealing with. “We all need to be on the lookout right now. We don’t want consumers to get confused,” said Jessica Waltman of the National Association of Health Underwriters, a trade association representing agents and brokers. Susan Johnson, the Northwest regional director for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, said while some brokers are passionate about helping, others are seeking to take advantage. In one such case, a state-licensed broker in suburban Seattle bought the domain name washingtonhealthplanfinder.org and built a website with fewer computer glitches than the state’s new health insurance marketplace, wahealthplanfinder.org. The brokerage’s site told customers: “Welcome to the Exchange!” in big print until the state insurance commissioner asked for changes to avoid confusion. “You don’t want to go to the wrong portal,” Johnson said.

a way out of this?” House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said it was clear that Boehner “did not have the votes” for the House leadership plan. Pelosi said the Reid-McConnell plan has “struck fear in the hearts of the House Republicans,” who she said want to “sabotage the bipartisan effort” in the Senate. The developments came as a partial shutdown entered its third week and less than two days before the Treasury Department says it will be unable to borrow and will rely on a cash cushion to pay the country’s bills. The House GOP plan wouldn’t win

nearly as many concessions from President Barack Obama as Republicans had sought but it would set up another battle with the White House early next year. Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., said he was not sure he could vote for the plan because it did not address the debt. “I have to know a lot more than I know now,” he said. The House move comes after conservative lawmakers rebelled at the outlines of an emerging Senate plan by Reid and GOP leader McConnell. Those two hoped to seal an agreement on Tuesday, just two days before the Treasury Department says it will run out of borrowing capacity. Obama planned to meet with House Democratic leaders Tuesday afternoon as negotiations continue. “The latest proposal from House Republicans does just that in a partisan attempt to appease a small group of tea party Republicans who forced the government shutdown in the first place,” said White House spokeswoman Amy Brundage. “Democrats and Republicans in the Senate have been working in a bipartisan, good-faith effort …. With only a couple days remaining until the United States exhausts its borrowing authority, it’s time for the House to do the same.” Political pressure is building on Republicans to reopen the government and GOP leaders are clearly fearful of failing to act to avert a default on U.S. obligations. Republicans are in a difficult spot, relinquishing many of their core demands as they take a beating in the polls. As the Republicans met privately to discuss the latest plan, Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Fla., led them in several verses of “Amazing Grace.”

Black scholar’s post-Civil War diploma survives COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Two rare documents from a fleeting time after the Civil War when the University of South Carolina first admitted African-American students and faculty went on exhibition Tuesday, recalling early steps toward racial equality that succumbed to the long era of segregation. A law school diploma from the university and a South Carolina law license granted in 1876 to Richard Theodore Greener, the first African-American faculty member of the university, were scheduled for a ceremonial presentation at noon Tuesday at the South Caroliniana Library on the school’s Columbia campus. Both documents survived after being plucked from a Chicago home in 2009 that was about to be demolished. Greener, the first AfricanAmerican graduate of Harvard and a promising intellectual who fought for equality, was invited to join the faculty of the South Carolina university in 1873, where he later became the first black head of its library. At the time, the prominent Southern university was briefly integrated in the post-

war Reconstruction era. “It was a fascinating time in our history, a time of so much hope. Reconstruction was an era when those who had been so oppressed believed they might achieve equality,” said the university’s archivist, Elizabeth Cassidy West. Greener taught philosophy, Latin and Greek, and also studied law. He graduated from the university’s law school and was licensed to practice law in 1876. Greener’s diploma and law license were going on display Tuesday as part of an exhibit detailing contributions blacks have played in the university’s history. The exhibition coincides with the university’s yearlong remembrance of events that led up to 1963, when the school once again admitted black students amid the struggle for Civil Rights. The era of integration didn’t last long after the war. In 1877, South Carolina’s government closed the school and then reopened it as an all-white institution in 1880, according to university spokeswoman Megan Sexton. “It was considered a stain

on the university” to record that blacks had attended the school, West said. “Now, we look back on it, and we can say that it was really groundbreaking for a state-supported school at that time to have black faculty, a black trustee and black students.” West said historians and scholars have some difficulty finding original documents from the time because many items were destroyed to eradicate the memory of blacks attending the school. “We have books where entire pages were cut out of volumes, and just ‘negroes’ written in,” West said. Even a historical plaque near the university’s famous “Horseshoe” collection of buildings built in the early 1800s makes reference to the time when “radicals” where in charge of the school. For many in the state, the post-war era recalls a time of chaos and disarray due, with destruction from the Civil War and the imposition of martial law. South Carolina is where the four-year war began when secessionist forces fired on Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor in April 1861, forcing its Union garrison to surrender.

Uneven enforcement suspected at nuclear plants Classifieds in reactor performance. Instead, the report says, the differences suggest that regulators interpret rules and guidelines differently among regions, perhaps because lower-level violations get limited review. The study also says that the NRC’s West region may enforce the rules more aggressively and that common corporate ownership of multiple plants may help bolster maintenance in the Southeast. However, the reasons aren’t fully understood because the NRC has never fully studied them, the report says. Right now, its authors wrote, the “NRC cannot ensure that oversight efforts are objective and consistent.” Told of the findings, safety critics said enforcement is too arbitrary and regulators may be missing violations. The nuclear industry has also voiced concern about the inconsistencies, the

report said. The analysis was written by the GAO, the investigative arm of Congress, at the request of four senators. Before the government shutdown, the report had been set for public release later this month. Steven Kerekes, a spokesman for the industry group Nuclear Energy Institute, declined to comment pending release of the report. The NRC’s public affairs office had no comment, citing the government shutdown. The GAO analysis focuses on lower-level safety violations known as “nonescalated.” They represent 98 percent of all violations identified by the NRC, which regulates safety at the country’s commercial reactors. Lower-level violations are those considered to pose very low risk, such as improper upkeep of an electrical transformer or failure to analyze a

problem with no impact on a system’s operation, such as the effect of a pipe break. Higherlevel violations range from low to high safety significance, such as an improperly maintained electrical system that caused a fire and affected a plant’s ability to shut down safely. The GAO’s analysis shows 3,225 of these violations from 2000 through the end of 2012 across 21 reactors in the West. By contrast, there were 1,885 such violations in the Southeast. Yet that region is home to 33 reactors — 12 more than in the West. The West registered 153.6 violations per reactor, while the Southeast saw just 57.1. The Midwest, with 24 reactors, had 3,148 violations, for a rate of 131.2 per reactor. The 26-reactor Northeast also fared worse than the Southeast, with 2,518 violations, or 96.8 per reactor.

Libyan pleads not guilty to terrorism charges

In this Monday, Sept. 23, 2013 photo, a pump jack works beside the site of new home construction, in Midland, Texas. The West Texas town is in the middle of an oil boom with thousands of workers in need of housing.

Booming oil rich towns prepare for inevitable bust MIDLAND, Texas (AP) — In a faded West Texas town dotted with vacant buildings and potholed streets is a sparkling storefront window and a curious display: rows of diamond-studded Rolex watches, awaiting buyers whose pockets are packed with oil money. The surge in oil drilling has drawn money and men like a magnet to run-down communities that haven’t seen a boom since the 1980s. But leaders and residents here are increasingly mindful that the runaway riches tapped by hydraulic fracturing will eventually run out. And they are determined to live by a fondly remembered bumper sticker from the last bust: Please, God, give me another oil boom and I promise not to blow it. So some towns are taking steps to ensure they land softly rather than crash into economic ruin. “Don’t go overboard. It’s not going to last,” Midland Mayor Wes Perry wants to shout, as a reminder to his own neighbors and a warning to communities in Pennsylvania and elsewhere that have never boomed like this, let alone endured a bust

on par with the one Texas experienced a generation ago. For now, Midland is the picture of prosperity. Since 2008, sales tax revenue has shot up from $24 million a year to more than $38 million in 2013. The unemployment rate is the lowest in Texas, hovering just above 3 percent. The town has hundreds of unfilled jobs. A local Subway pays $15 an hour with a $1,000 starting bonus. Housing is so scarce that modest hotel rooms go for $300 a night. This, longtime residents know, is what an oil boom looks like. And it’s always been followed by a steep, painful decline. When the energy market finally fades, the town wants to avoid being burdened with crushing debt or too many employees. So sales tax revenue is used only for one-time projects, such as street repairs. Police officers are hired piecemeal, two or three a year, as the population increases. Instead of using municipal money to lure an investor to build a proposed high-rise project, the city will instead

provide an 80 percent tax break on revenues for five years. “Companies don’t screw up in bad times. They screw up in good times. Same for cities,” Perry said. That lesson was learned a generation ago. Midland and Odessa, along with parts of North Dakota, boomed in the late 1970s. The windfall enabled people to buy jets and Rolls-Royces and build mansions and lakefront homes. Then in the early 1980s, the bottom fell out of the oil barrel. The same people went bankrupt. Home foreclosures skyrocketed. Banks failed. People moved away. Homes and downtown buildings were abandoned. “It was awful to live through that,” the mayor said, recalling “Black Friday” — Oct. 14, 1983. That is the day the First National Bank of Midland, which loaned money so people could finance lavish lifestyles, collapsed under the weight of a plummeting oil market. The “majors” — or big oil companies — fled for greener pastures abroad.

NEW YORK (AP) — An alleged alQaida member who was snatched off the streets in Libya and interrogated for a week aboard an American warship pleaded not guilty to bombing-related charges Tuesday in a case that has renewed the debate over how quickly terrorism suspects should be turned over to the U.S. courts. Despite calls from Republicans in Congress to send him to Guantanamo Bay for indefinite interrogation, Abu Anas al-Libi became the latest alleged terrorist to face civilian prosecution in federal court in New York, the scene of several such convictions. Al-Libi, wearing a thick gray beard, looked frail and moved slowly as he was led into the heavily guarded courtroom in handcuffs. An attorney said he had come to court from a New York hospital, where he was treated for three days for hepatitis C and swollen limbs. The 49-year-old al-Libi was captured by American commandos during an Oct. 5 military raid in Libya and questioned for a week aboard the USS San Antonio. He was indicted more than a decade ago in the twin 1998 bombings at the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 224 people, including a dozen Americans. If convicted, he could get life behind bars. Known as one of al-Qaida’s early computer experts, al-Libi is accused of helping plan and conduct surveillance for the attacks. He is believed to have used an early-generation Apple computer (NASDAQ:AAPL) to assemble surveillance photographs. The defendant kept his hands folded on his lap as the judge read the charges in a courtroom secured by about a dozen deputy U.S. marshals. The judge ordered him detained after a federal prosecutor called him a “clear danger.” Republicans stepped up their criticism of Obama for his administration’s handling of al-Libi, saying he should have been sent to the American prison at Guantanamo Bay for more interrogation instead of being taken to the U.S. and given access to civilian courts and the legal protections they provide. “He was a treasure trove of information,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. “The most dangerous thing we could do as a nation is to treat a captured alQaida terrorist as a common criminal, read them their Miranda rights and put them in civilian court before we have a chance to gather intelligence.”

Death toll in Philippines quake jumps to 93 CEBU, Philippines (AP) — The death toll from a 7.2-magnitude earthquake that struck the central Philippine island of Bohol on Tuesday rose to 93, as rescuers struggled to reach patients in a collapsed hospital. Centuries-old stone churches crumbled and wide areas were without power. Bohol police chief Dennis Agustin said 77 of the deaths came from the province. At least 15 others died in nearby Cebu province and another on Siquijor Island. The quake struck at 8:12 a.m. and was centered about 33 kilometers (20 miles) below Carmen city, where many small buildings collapsed. Many roads and bridges were reported damaged, making rescue operations difficult. But historic churches dating from the Spanish colonial period suffered the most. Among them was the country’s oldest, the 16th-century Basilica of the Holy Child in Cebu, which lost its bell tower. Nearly half of a 17th-century limestone church in Loboc town,

southwest of Carmen, was reduced to rubble. The highest number of dead — 18 — were in the municipality of Loon, 42 kilometers (26 miles) west of Carmen, where an unknown number of patients were trapped inside the Congressman Castillo Memorial Hospital, which partially collapsed. Rescuers were working to reach them, said civil defense spokesman Maj. Reynaldo Balido. As night fell, the entire province was in the dark after the quake cut power supplies. Windy weather and rain also forced back a military rescue helicopter. Authorities were setting up tents for those displaced by the quake, while others who lost their homes moved in with their relatives, Bohol Gov. Edgardo Chatto said. Extensive damage also hit densely populated Cebu city, across a narrow strait from Bohol, causing deaths when a building in the port and the roof of a market area collapsed. The quake set off two stampedes in nearby cities. When it struck,

people gathered in a gym in Cebu rushed outside in a panic, crushing five people to death and injuring eight others, said Neil Sanchez, provincial disaster management officer. “We ran out of the building, and outside, we hugged trees because the tremors were so strong,” said Vilma Yorong, a provincial government employee in Bohol. “When the shaking stopped, I ran to the street and there I saw several injured people. Some were saying their church has collapsed,” she told The Associated Press by phone. As fear set in, Yorong and the others ran up a mountain, afraid a tsunami would follow the quake. “Minutes after the earthquake, people were pushing each other to go up the hill,” she said. But the quake was centered inland and did not cause a tsunami. Offices and schools were closed for a national holiday — the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha — which may have saved lives. The earthquake also was deeper

below the surface than a 6.9-magnitude temblor last year in waters near Negros Island, also in the central Philippines, that killed nearly 100 people. Aledel Cuizon said the quake that caught her in her bedroom sounded like “a huge truck that was approaching and the rumbling sound grew louder as it got closer.” She and her neighbors ran outside, where she saw concrete electric poles “swaying like coconut trees.” It lasted 15-20 seconds, she said. Cebu city’s hospitals quickly moved patients into the streets, basketball courts and parks. Cebu province, about 570 kilometers (350 miles) south of Manila, has a population of more than 2.6 million people. Cebu is the second largest city after Manila. Nearby Bohol has 1.2 million people and is popular among foreigners because of its beach and island resorts and famed Chocolate Hills. President Benigno Aquino III said he would travel to Bohol and Cebu on Wednesday.

BOSTON (AP) — The number of safety violations at U.S. nuclear power plants varies dramatically from region to region, pointing to inconsistent enforcement in an industry now operating mostly beyond its original 40-year licenses, according to a congressional study awaiting release. Nu c l e a r Re g u l at o r y Commission figures cited in the Government Accountability Office report show that while the West has the fewest reactors, it had the most lower-level violations from 2000 to 2012 — more than 2½ times the Southeast’s rate per reactor. The Southeast, with the most reactors of the NRC’s four regions, had the fewest such violations, according to the report, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press. The striking variations do not appear to reflect real differences

Troy begins tourney play with rout

Staff Reports

CENTERVILLE — No wasting time this time around. After having to go four sets to beat Springfield earlier this season, Troy kicked off Division I volleyball sectional tournament play with a very convincing sweep. The fourth-seeded Trojans (158) knocked off the No. 14 Wildcats (6-15) 25-7, 25-9, 25-15 Monday night at Centerville High School to advance to the tournament’s second round. “They (Springfield) jumped on us at the seeding meeting,” Troy coach Michelle Owen said. “They could have Anthony Weber | Troy Daily News taken an easier first-round game, but The Troy Trojans celebrate a goal in front of the entrance to Fairborn High School’s soccer stadium they came after us. So I used that as Monday night during a 2-0 victory. motivation for the girls going into the game.” It worked. Five different Trojans had seven or more kills in the game, with none reaching double digits. Jillian Ross led the way with nine kills, three blocks and three digs, Ashton Riley had eight kills, four aces and three digs, Lauren Freed had eight kills, three aces and nine digs, Katie DeMeo had eight kills, three blocks and two digs and Emily Moser had seven kills and eight digs. “You can’t ask for more balance than Josh Brown that,” Owen said.

YELLOW SPRINGS — Morgan Gigandet took Troy Junior High cross country coach Kurt Snyder’s advice to heart in the offseason. “I told her to run hard, even when I wasn’t watching,” Snyder said. She does — but she also runs hard when opposing runners are watching, too. And they usually end up watching her run away with races. Gigandet, an eighthgrader, broke the Troy Junior High cross country record on two separate occasions this season and has only lost twice — once at the Lebanon Invitational, the second race of the year, and once Tuesday at Yellow Springs in the final meet of the season. But the special thing about Gigandet is that she doesn’t need nudges from external factors to want to be better. She’s completely self-motivated. “It’s kind of easier See STARTER | 14

Bethel travels to top-seeded Preble Shawnee Thursday. FM 1, Newton 0 PITSBURG — The No. 6 Newton Indians couldn’t pull off the upset Monday night, falling at No. 5 Franklin Monroe 1-0. Newton finished the season 7-6-3. • Division II CJ 3, M-U 2 FAIRBORN — Three unanswered goals by Chaminade Julienne in the middle of the game proved to be Milton-Union’s undoing Monday night as the No. 8 Bulldogs fell to the No. 4 Eagles 3-2 in the first round of the Division II sectional tournament. Matison Jackson gave the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead on a penalty kick 20 minutes into the game, but CJ scored on a corner kick to make it 1-1 at the half, then connected on another corner kick and added an insurance goal to make it a 3-1 game. They needed that insurance, too, as Danielle McFarland scored on an assist from Brianna Wiltshire to make it a onegoal game — but CJ was able to hold on. “We had a couple of really good chances with 10 minutes and again with five minutes left to tie the game,” MiltonUnion coach Andy Grudich said. “We just couldn’t get it done.” Milton-Union, now 7-8-1, still has one Photo courtesy Lee Woolery | Speedshot Photo last chance to get back to the .500 mark Troy eighth-grader Morgan Gigandet runs during the GWOC Junior — the Bulldogs face Carlisle Saturday High Championships Saturday in Sidney.

Revenge From page 13 back thrown into the mix didn’t hurt, either. Troy’s defense shut down a potent and dangerous Fairborn team that had only been shut out two other times this season — a Fairborn team that had defeated Troy 4-3 earlier this season, too — and made a pair of quality first-half goals stand up as the Trojans shut out the Skyhawks 2-0 at Fairborn in the first round of the Division I sectional tournament. “We really wanted to get revenge,” said freshman goalkeeper Arianna Garcia, who made countless huge saves during the Skyhawks’ secondhalf push. “We came to play tonight. We really wanted this one.” Scoring or not, though, Troy knew that its priority had to be doing a better job of keeping Fairborn’s tandem of Aaliyah Patton and Jordan Foster — who scored two goals apiece in the first meeting — off the board. “We knew coming in there that for us to have any chance of winning, we had to shut down Patton and Foster,” Rasey said. “Foster is the most dangerous goal scorer in the Dayton area. But we also knew that with the defenders we have, like Maci (Wadsworth) and Courtney (Mazzulla), we had a chance of doing that if those girls came up big.” Did they ever. Wadsworth drew the task of taking on Foster, while Mazzulla marked Patton. And through all of the bumping and running as fast as possible

and tricky ballhandling, the duo combined with the rest of the defense and Garcia to do just that. “I’m not used to manmarking,” Wadsworth said. “She’s (Foster) real physical, too. It was a challenge. That was my only goal, though — not to let her score. “Courtney did a great job on Patton, too, and we had Kelsey (Walters) and Vicky (Victoria Miller) behind us to clean up anything that got by us. And Arianna had a great game, too. Our whole defense just did really well tonight.” But all of that defense would have been for nothing without some offense, too. And that came from a familiar source. Kina Sekito — who scored the lone goal in

Troy’s win over Piqua during the final week of the regular season — finished off a great combination play with 24:27 left in the first half. Morgan Brown dished off to Mazzulla, who was streaking down the left sideline moving away from the ball, and Mazzulla centered it to a wide-open Sekito in front of the goal. Sekito easily beat the keeper, and Troy had the early lead. “That goal was probably the biggest of our season so far. Well, that and the one against Piqua are our two biggest goals,” Rasey said. Less than five minutes later, Troy got some insurance, too. Sierra Besecker got the ball in front of the Fairborn net, but with her back turned towards it and defenders in between her and

to motivate myself,” Gigandet said. “I already know what I can do myself, so I can push myself more.” “She’s that rare kind of athlete that can push themselves,” Snyder said. “She doesn’t need a coach yelling at her to go faster, or a teammate in practice that pushes her to go faster. She just wants to go faster. “She goes out in the summer and puts in the miles needed to get better on her own.” And the leap she made in just the summer between seventh and eighth grades is a phenomenal one. Gigandet ran a 12:06 at the Miami County Championships earlier this season, breaking Katie Kissel’s record of 12:16 set in 1997. She also broke that mark again Saturday at the Greater Western Ohio Conference Championships, running a 12:14 — meaning she doesn’t shy away from big races, either, running her two best times at arguably the biggest races of the year. “By the end of her seventh grade year, she ended up being our top runner,” Snyder said. “She got the itch at the end of the year and decided ‘I can be good at this.’ She put in the time and the work in the offseason, and it showed. “She wasn’t even in our top 25 times of all time at the end of last year. Now she has the top two.” “I guess I’m just more motivated this year,” Gigandet said. “I just like to run already anyway, so I think that helps.” And even though Snyder doesn’t think she needs the extra pushing, she still gets it from him and her teammates. “Give a lot of credit to Emma Shigley, our second-fastest runner, too,” Snyder said. “She does push her every day in practice. Morgan may not need it, but she’s right there on her to push her harder.” And when Gigandet is a freshman next season, it will mean that both of Troy’s junior high record holders will be on varsity at the same time. Troy Schultz, the boys’ record holder, will be a senior. And while Gigandet knows she wants to keep running, she just doesn’t know how far to take it quite yet. “I really don’t know. I just want to do the best that I can,” she said when asked about her future goals. “I want to keep improving my times as much as I can.” Once she does have clearer goals, though, motivation certainly won’t be a problem. • HS Girls Troy High School’s reserve girls ran their final regular season race Tuesday at Yellow Springs, placing second out of 15 teams. Cristina Dennison was eighth, Morgan Cockerham was 12th, Hailey Huelsman was 14th, Courtney Burgasser was 16th, Jena Stewart was 20th, Morgan Peltier was 22nd and Lauryan Rutan was 26th. “I’m quite proud of how this group of girls finished the season, sweeping the GWOC open race Saturday then coming back this evening with another great race,” Troy coach Kevin Alexander said. “Words can’t describe the contributions seniors Jena Stewart, Courtney Burgasser, Ellie Walters, Elisabeth Dodd and Ashley brewer have provided to this year’s squad.”

Miranda Silcott had a kill. Troy will face No. 7 Northmont at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday for the right to play in the sectional final. “I don’t like that,” Owen said about facing a relatively-unfamiliar opponent. “We watched them last night and have a scouting report on them. But if we play the way we are capable of, it shouldn’t be an issue.” Northmont 3, Piqua 0 CENTERVILLE — The No. 11 Piqua Indians’ season came to an end Monday night in the opening round of the Division I sectional tournament with a 25-21, 25-17, 25-20 loss to No. 7 Northmont.

the net. So she dished it out to Brown, who hit a high-arcing shot that glanced off the tips of the keeper’s fingers and off the underside of the crossbar. It bounced down towards the ground and the keeper wrapped it up, but not before it had already crossed the goal line to make it 2-0 with 19:37 left in the half. Then it was Garcia’s turn to come up big, time and time again. Foster got the ball up the sideline and sent a perfect cross into the box, but Garcia, showing instincts a freshman probably shouldn’t have, was able to cut it off at the last possible second before it reached its target, keeping Fairborn off the board heading into the break. And in the second

half, the Skyhawks really turned on the pressure— but it was all to no avail. Patton hit a left-footed shot off the near post five minutes into the second, then Foster had a point-blank shot that Wadsworth was able to block before it reached the goal. And with 22 minutes left in the game, Fairborn watched Garcia turn away its best chance of the night. Erika Watts took a free kick from just outside the goal box and sent it arcing around Troy’s wall and towards the far post – but Garcia was in perfect position and punched it out towards the center of the field and clear. “Arianna, she’s no longer a freshman,” Rasey said. “She made some

huge saves in this game, especially that one with a little more than 20 minutes to go.” Fairborn had a few more chances, too, but Troy turned every one of them away. “This is only the third time they’ve been shut out all year. The first two were Springboro and St. Ursula,” Rasey said. “For us to be able to do that too shows just how dangerous we can be.” Troy had lost three straight games to Wayne, Sidney and Beavercreek — all via shutout. Now the Trojans have posted three straight shutouts themselves over Piqua, Miamisburg and Fairborn — all wins. Troy (8-72) hosts 1-15 Springfield Thursday for the right to play in the sectional final.

Piqua finished the season 10-13. Northmont (14-9) will play Troy Wednesday in the second round. • Division III WL-S 3, M-U 1 BROOKVILLE — Seventh-seeded Milton-Union jumped out to an early lead Tuesday night against No. 8 West Liberty-Salem, but the Bulldogs couldn’t keep it rolling in a four-set loss, 17-25, 25-16, 25-15, 25-17 in the second round of the Division III sectional at Brookville High School. “We were really ready to play, and we’ve been ready to start games all year,” Milton-Union coach Bill Ginn said. “Our record in the first set of matches this season is 22-2.

Unfortunately, tonight we couldn’t sustain our energy, and they were able to get it from us. “I graduate eight wonderful seniors — Courtney Wion, Kinsey Douglas, Katlyn Douglas, Brianna Bul, Christine Heisey, Cloe Smith, Kaitlyn Thompson and Jessica Shields. These girls have stayed together, played together, and I will miss them so much. They have been the foundation of our program.” Milton-Union finished the season 17-7.

Boston holds off Detroit, 1-0 DETROIT (AP) — Once again this October, one run was enough. The Boston Red Sox scored it — and now they lead an AL championship series that seemed to be slipping away last weekend. John Lackey edged Justin Verlander in the latest duel of these pitching-rich playoffs, and Boston’s bullpen shut down Detroit’s big boppers with the game on the line to lift the Red Sox over the Tigers 1-0 Tuesday for a 2-1 advantage in the ALCS. Mike Napoli homered off Verlander in the seventh inning, and Detroit’s best chance to rally fell short in the eighth when Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder struck out with runners at the corners. “This game had the feel it was going to be won or lost on one pitch,” Boston reliever Craig Breslow said. “Lackey kept us in the game. Every inning where he was able to throw up a zero gave us a lift.” Despite three straight gems by their starters, the Tigers suddenly trail in a best-of-seven series they initially appeared to control. Game 4 is Wednesday night at Comerica Park, with Jake Peavy scheduled to start for the Red Sox against Doug Fister. Peavy set the tone Tuesday during a pregame news conference, when he sounded miffed that so much of the attention was focused on Verlander before Game 3. “It’s been funny for me to watch all

the coverage of the game coming in,” Peavy said. “Almost like we didn’t have a starter going today. Our starter is pretty good, too.” Lackey backed that up and then some. He allowed four hits in 6 2-3 innings, striking out eight without a walk in a game that was delayed 17 minutes in the second inning because lights on the stadium towers went out. “I think that little time off gave him a chance to slow down a little bit. He was excited and pumped that first inning,” Boston catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia

said. “Kind of getting excited with his slider, throwing a little too hard and leaving it over the middle, but he was still pretty effective.” It was the second 1-0 game in this matchup between the highest-scoring teams in the majors. Dominant pitching has been a running theme throughout these playoffs, which have included four 1-0 scores and seven shutouts in the first 26 games. “The runs are pretty stingy,” Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. “This is what it’s about in postseason, is good pitching.”
