Death toll climbs in Sandy’s wake Millions of people from Maine to the Carolinas awoke Tuesday without electricity, and an eerily quiet New York City was all but closed off by car, train and air as superstorm Sandy steamed inland, still delivering punishing wind and rain. The U.S. death toll climbed to 39, many of the victims killed by falling trees. The full extent of the damage in New Jersey, where the storm roared ashore Monday night with hurricane-force winds of 80 mph, was unclear.

oxanne Rogers says the worst memory of her battle with breast cancer was not hearing the diagnoTROY sis, undergoing chemotherapy or facing radiation treatment. It wasn’t telling her family. And it wasn’t recovering alone. Instead, it was losing her hair — a part of her identity, her livelihood. “I don’t want to relive that devastating moment of being in the shower and having the hair sliding down my back. And I’m not a vain person, always standing in front of a mirror. I get ready and go. But that was the worst — even more so than my chemo

end went well, but said 20 machines will be set up over this coming weekend to accommodate early voters. “The good news is we are in good shape and we are processing the ballots as they come,” Luring said. As of this week, 4,500 early ballots have been voted and the daily average of early voters is climbing daily.

Survivor • CONTINUED FROM 1 treatment. It was my hair starting to fall out,” Rogers said. Last fall, Rogers, 58, of Troy went to the doctor for a wellness check — including a mammogram — as required for starting her new job as a nurse at Stillwater Center in Clayton. Her lymph nodes had been swollen, but as a chronic allergy sufferer, she was convinced it was due to the change in seasons. The real cause took her by surprise. “I wasn’t supposed to be back in (the doctor’s office) till the next week to go over test results, but the next day the doctor said, ‘We need you in ROGERS the office now,’” Rogers recalled. “It was quite devastating.” After six mammograms, she learned that she had breast cancer. In retrospective, she regrets not having mammograms more frequently. She had her first at age 40, and then estimates that she had three or four later. She has no family history of breast cancer. “I wish now that I would have taken better care of myself and had my checks sooner, better if I wouldn’t have lost so much,” she said. “I didn’t think it was necessary because I thought, ‘That kind of thing doesn’t happen to me.’” Rogers had her surgery Nov. 29 and underwent treatment through July 19 at Upper Valley Medical Center. “It went by very quickly for me, looking back on it. Two weeks after starting chemo, I had my port put it, and it punctured my lung. They had to get another port put in at Miami Valley,” Rogers said, recalling that it was an unusual experience. But she says she’s forever grateful for the care she received. “Everybody in that place in the old area and the new


and will continue to battle breast cancer. The color pink has become synonymous with breast cancer awareness. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “All of us have been touched in some way by breast cancer — either directly or indirectly through a friend or loved one,” Troy Daily News executive editor David Fong said. “At the end of this month, we wanted to do something to highlight the fight against this dreaded disease. Not only are we printing this edition on pink paper, we also are bringing our readers several stories regarding the fight against breast cancer and cancer in general. We hope all of our readers keep those who are battling cancer in their thoughts and prayers not only in the month of October, but for the entire year.”

and we have to do a good job because nearly 600 people will come in today (to vote early) and we have received hundreds and hundreds of mail ballots,” Luring said. “We are fully staffed and have 10 machines up to take on voters.” He said the in-person early voting process at the board’s office over the week-

• CONTINUED FROM 1 during their treatment journey, according to Jean Heath, R.N. director of UMCV Cancer Care Center. “We wanted to increase the patient’s experience,” Heath said. “This state-of-the -art center allows us to work on the whole patient experience.” The new center opened in May 2012 and boasts advanced radiation therapy, a CT scanner, a cancer registry and clinical trials as well as other support and treatment options in Troy. The treatment center allows patients to receive a variety of treatments in one of 10 individual treatment centers or allows the patient to bring supportive family and friends in larger treatment rooms with more privacy for others. The individual treatment center is an improvement from the hospital’s former accommodations where all patients were in one large room and grouped together with little to no privacy, Heath said. Bill Byrer, of Troy, was watching an episode of “Price is Right” while receiving an infusion treatment. “Better than the old place – more private,” Byrer simply said. “It’s nice. They take care of you.” Byrer’s nurse, Tracy Cordonnier, an oncology nurse for 12 years, said the new cancer care center is a major improvement for staff, too. “I like the fact it’s an outpatient center and they bring a lot of family,” Cordonnier said. “You see them often, so you get to know them, their families. You get to know them on a more personal level.”

patients vary from 20-30 people a day — some of whom receive treatment once a month or several time a week from 30 minutes to an eighthour session. Additionally, she said the Cancer Care Center has a library, complete with digital materials like Kindle Fires as well as hardback books on a variety of subjects for patients to enjoy. The resource library also has literature and information about cancer and other treatments for patients to learn more about their diagnosis and treatment plans. Each bay has a reclining heated massage chair, a flat screen TV STATE OF THE ART and view of the hospital’s FACILITY healing garden.

received in his hometown hospital. “They asked us what our needs were,” Heath said. “They wanted to help others with their journey. The Dugan family felt that we gave compassionate care that they wanted to continue for these services to stay here.” Heath also said plans are in the works to have a massage therapist to treat patients for the pain that often comes with cancer and its treatments. In addition to the expert nursing staff and oncologists, experts in the field of pain management also are on staff at the cancer care center, Heath said. The cancer care center also has an oncology nurse specialist, Sarah M. Jones, RN, MS on staff. Jones serves as the center’s nurse educator and primary resource for inpatient and staff education, and also provides the center with a unique preventative cancer assessment for families with history of genetic prone cancers. She is able to provide an in-depth assessment for those who may be at risk for hereditary cancer such as breast, ovarian, colon and uterine cancers as well as melanoma. “Bigger is not always better,” Jones said of treatment centers far away from the region. “(Patients) like having people know who they are, make a connection and meet their needs.” Overall, Heath said with the variety of services the John J. Dugan Cancer Center provides, it’s the feeling of warmth and caring in a place close to home which she believes is the most valuable to the community. “This is a place of warmth and comfort,” Heath said. “With this new facility, we can make a negative experience more comfortable.” For more information about the John J.

Luring added that election staff will start scanning ballots this week in preparation of the election. County polling places will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Election Day. Elections officials are expecting a voter turnout larger than experienced in the 2008 presidential election, which brought out a record-setting 73 percent of the county’s registered voters.

Infusion center area (of UVMC) were all very nice — they put up with me,” she said with a laugh. Rogers found her co-workers at Stillwater Center — which provides care for persons with mental retardation and developmental disabilities — to be just the support system she needed, keeping matters light. She wore hats, some made by her aunt, and wigs, until one day her coworkers noticed her hair growing back in and encouraged her to show off her short hair. She obliged. “I’ve had fun working. I don’t even call it work. I just like being out and about with other people,” she said. The clients at the center treated her just the same, she added. “They knew my voice. My voice hadn’t changed,” she said. Rogers, who is one of six children, says she also was fortunate to have the support of her sister Raye, who came down from Michigan for her surgery and nearly every chemo session. She also has four children scattered throughout Ohio and 14 grandchildren. While Rogers is divorced, she still is on good terms with her ex. She also found strength knowing that she was placed on prayer lists at churches. “It just helps knowing that someone else is thinking of you,” she said. Her coworkers recently participated in a cancer walk in her name, and she has walked in many events, both both and after she had cancer. She wears a purple shirt that reads “Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back.” from the 2012 American Cancer Society Relay for Life. That motto couldn’t be more appropriate for her bout with breast cancer. “Originally, I didn’t want to go through it. There were a lot of times where I said, ‘I’ve had enough,’ and living alone, that had a lot to do with it,” Rogers said. “When you live alone, you have lots of little evil thoughts running through your mind. But I’ve handled it all with a sense of humor and prayers. My motto was, ‘God brought me to it — he’ll get me through it.’”

Vote Adams for state rep

Tom Dunn Troy Daily News Guest Columnist

The state report card: what a waste This year the state of Ohio, in tandem with the Ohio Department of Education, will waste, and yes, I mean waste, 60 MILLION of our taxpayer dollars on student assessments and school district report cards. They justify this waste by using the term “accountability” and by pretending as if reporting meaningless data actually informs the public of how well their schools are doing. Of course, that isn’t true, but that doesn’t stop them from throwing our money down the drain anyway. Well, last week, amid great and unwarranted fanfare and media attention, the school district report cards were released by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE). To be clear, this means that in October of this school year the ODE finally had enough confidence in last school year’s data to use it to tell us how well our schools are doing. As if that in itself isn’t ridiculous enough, under the current teacher evalAs I uation law a principal would have to use this See It same data to perform last year’s teacher evalua■ The Troy tions which also had to be completed last year.

Let me tell you a little something about these graduation statistics. By law, students with disabilities have the right to be educated in public schools from the ages of 3 to 22. As a result of this law, some parents, usually those with profoundly disabled students, opt to have their children stay in high school beyond the typical four-year time period. That is their right. However, graduation data used in the report card is based on students who graduate during the “normal” four-year cycle. Any student who does not graduate within four years from when they enter high school is considered a drop-out. So, school districts that follow the law by providing services to students beyond four years in high school, as they are required to do, are then penalized on the report card by having these same students counted as drop-outs. How much sense does that make? So the next time you see an article about how wonderful these report cards are, just remember this little tidbit of graduation information, and keep in mind that this is just one of many similar examples of worthless statistics that comprise them. Then, repeat after me; “These report cards are worthless; these report cards are worthless; these report cards are worthless.”

True life: I may be attending a Justin Bieber concert What I’m about to say may cause me to lose credibility among our faithful readers. But that’s a risk I’m willing to take. Here’s the big news: I’m (hopefully!) going to a Justin Bieber concert Friday. There. I said it. My friend Daniella works for a public relations firm, and apparently someone in her company has connections for getting FREE tickets. Did I mention they’re as close to the front as you can possibly get — unless you’re a mad demon when it comes to logging into Ticketmaster at lightening-fast speeds? Since I’m writing this Monday, I’ll technically know before we go to print whether we are in fact the lucky owners of two tickets to see the Biebs in Louisville. Someone else at Daniella’s firm got tickets for a different date a couple weeks ago, so I’m thinking we’re good to go. If it doesn’t happen, I’ll be less heartbroken that I will be saddened to miss out on bragging rights. Which is why I’m writing my column a day early. Also, to annoy my boss and coworkers who are less-than-enthusiastic about the teenage singing sensation. For anyone who has been removed from teeny-bopper cul-

Natalie Knoth Troy Daily News Columnist ture, Justin Bieber (“The Biebs”) is a baby-faced singer who is enormously popular among juniorhigh-age girls. He used to have that signature swooping hairstyle but it’s now buzzed short. Sound familiar? Also pretty sure he’s dating Disney superstar Selena Gomez, though some ever-credible tabloids claim they may have called it quits. Bummer. It was like a fairy tale. You may be sitting at home snickering, thinking about a 23year-old going ballistic for Bieber, but c’mon. Show me ONE person who can’t help bopping to the beat of “Boyfriend”? What about “Baby”? They’re irresistible. Justin Bieber has even been compared to Justin Timberlake, which — let’s be real — is saying a lot. He was in N’SYNC, for crying out loud! That’s basically on par with the

Beatles. If you don’t like Justin Bieber, chances are you know a 12-yearold (or 7-year-old) girl who does. I’m only double or triple their ages. And I like him for only his music, I promise. Just so catchy. My cousin — nearly 30 — agrees. So there! Before I get written off as some shallow-music-minded buffoon, let me just say that I have been to wide variety of concerts. I went to two Backstreet Boys concerts in the same number of years. No, I was not 10 at the time. I was in college. I’d tell you they were awesome concerts, but I couldn’t actually SEE them since I was stuck behind a tall guy each time. Probably some dude who didn’t even want to be there but was dragged by his girlfriend. OK. Referencing the Backstreet Boys is probably not the best way to illustrate my depth of music interests. Last June I got to see Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney and Jake Owen in Cincinnati as part of the Brothers of the Sun Tour. It was my first country concert ever, and while I knew only a handful of songs — “Live Like You Were Dying” and “Alone with You,” among others — I had a fabulous

time. I also felt a little proud of myself for being at a concert with slightly more sophisticated music. Never mind that I was surrounded by a bunch of shirtless revelers. My senior year of college I saw the Goo Goo Dolls, who I think are pretty well respected. It was one of my favorite memories of spring quarter at OU. I’ve also seen Gavin DeGraw twice, Colbie Caillat, One Republic and The Fray. I was pretty bummed to miss out on Mat Kearney and Train perform this summer at the Downtown Dayton Revival concert (tickets were a bit pricey) but I’d love to see them. My absolute favorite concert would have to be John Mayer my junior year of college, surrounded by my friends, sister and brother. It was a glorious time — we had great seats and knew every. single. word. to every song. Truly was a night I’ll never forgot. If my friend and I do end up going to see Justin Bieber, I can’t say it’ll live up to John Mayer. But one thing’s for sure: I bet there are thousands of young teenage girls who’d gladly trade places with me. And I don’t blame them one bit.

Sandy’s death toll climbs Millions without power NEW YORK (AP) — Millions of people from Maine to the Carolinas awoke Tuesday without electricity, and an eerily quiet New York City was all but closed off by car, train and air as superstorm Sandy steamed inland, still delivering punishing wind and rain. The U.S. death toll climbed to 39, many of the victims killed by falling trees. The full extent of the damage in New Jersey, where the storm roared ashore Monday night with hurricane-force winds of 80 mph, was unclear. Police and fire officials, some with their own departments flooded, fanned out to rescue hundreds. “We are in the midst of urban search and rescue. Our teams are moving as fast as they can,” Gov. Chris Christie said. “The devastation on the Jersey Shore is some of the worst we’ve ever seen. The cost of the storm is incalculable at this point.” More than 8.2 million people across the East were without power. Airlines canceled more than 15,000 flights around the world, and it could be days before the mess is untangled and passengers can get where they’re going. The storm also disrupted the presidential campaign with just a week to go before Election Day. President Barack Obama canceled a third straight day of campaigning, scratching events scheduled for Wednesday in swing state Ohio. Republican Mitt Romney resumed his campaign, but with plans to turn a political rally in Ohio into a “storm relief event.” Sandy will end up causing about $20 billion in property damage and $10 billion to $30 billion more in lost business, making it one of the costliest natural disasters on record in the U.S., according to IHS Global Insight, a forecasting firm. Lower Manhattan, which includes Wall Street, was among the hardest-hit areas after the storm sent a nearly 14-foot surge of seawater, a record, coursing over its seawalls and highways. Water cascaded into the gaping, unfinished construction pit at the World Trade Center, and the New York Stock Exchange was closed for a second day, the

AT RIGHT: Robert Connolly, left, embraces his wife Laura as they survey the remains of the home owned by her parents that burned to the ground in the Breezy Point section of New York, Tuesday.

first time that has happened because of weather since the Blizzard of 1888. The NYSE said it will reopen on Wednesday. A huge fire destroyed as many as 100 houses in a flooded beachfront neighborhood in Queens on Tuesday, forcing firefighters to undertake daring rescues. Three people were injured. New York University’s Tisch Hospital evacuated 200 patients after its backup generator failed. About 20 babies from the neonatal intensive care unit were carried down staircases and were given batterypowered respirators. A construction crane that collapsed in the high winds on Monday still dangled precariously 74 floors above the streets of midtown Manhattan, and hundreds of people were evacuated as a precaution. And on Staten Island, a tanker ship wound up beached on the shore. Most major tunnels and bridges in New York were closed, as were schools, Broadway theaters and the metropolitan area’s three main airports, LaGuardia, Kennedy and Newark. With water standing in two major commuter tunnels and seven subway tunnels under the East River, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said it was unclear when the nation’s largest transit system would be rolling

again. It shut down Sunday night ahead of the storm. Joseph Lhota, chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, said the damage was the worst in the 108-year history of the New York subway. Similarly, Consolidated Edison said it could take at least a week to restore electricity to the last of the nearly 800,000 customers in and around New York City who lost power. Millions of more fortunate New Yorkers surveyed the damage as dawn broke, their city brought to an extraordinary standstill. “Oh, Jesus. Oh, no,” Faye Schwartz said she looked over her neighborhood in Brooklyn, where cars were scattered like leaves. Reggie Thomas, a maintenance supervisor at a prison near the overflowing Hudson River, emerged from an overnight shift, a toothbrush in his front pocket, to find his Honda with its windows down and a foot of water inside. The windows automatically go down when the car is submerged to free drivers. “It’s totaled,” Thomas said with a shrug. “You would have needed a boat last night.” Around midday, Sandy was about 120 miles east of Pittsburgh, pushing westward with winds of 45 mph, and was expected to make a turn into New York State on Tuesday night.

Although weakening as it goes, the storm will continue to bring heavy rain and flooding, said Daniel Brown of the National Center in Hurricane Miami. In a measure of the storm’s immense size and power, waves on southern Lake Michigan rose to a record-tying 20.3 feet. High winds spinning off Sandy’s edges clobbered the Cleveland area early Tuesday, uprooting trees, cutting power to hundreds of thousands, closing schools and flooding major roads along Lake Erie. In Portland, Maine, gusts topping 60 mph scared away several cruise ships and prompted officials to close the port. Sandy also brought blizzard conditions to parts of West Virginia and neighboring Appalachian states, with more than 2 feet of snow expected in some places. A snowstorm in western Maryland caused a pileup of tractor-trailers that blocked part of Interstate 68 on slippery Big Savage Mountain. “It’s like a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs up here,” said Bill Wiltson, a Maryland State Police dispatcher. The death toll climbed rapidly, and included 17 victims in New York State 10 of them in New York City along with five dead in Pennsylvania and five in

The massive storm that started out as Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast and morphed into a huge and problematic system, putting more than 8.4 million homes and businesses in the dark and causing at least 39 deaths in the U.S. Here’s a snapshot of what is happening, state by state. CONNECTICUT The Long Island Sound flooded roads as the storm toppled trees and power lines. Three people died, including a man last seen swimming in heavy surf. Power outages: More than 615,000. DELAWARE Nearly all residents of flood-prone coastal communities in Kent County heeded calls to evacuate. The Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach resort communities were flooded. Power outages: More than 45,000. ILLINOIS High wind warnings and a lakeshore flood warning are in effect Tuesday and Wednesday in Chicago. City officials said Lake Shore Drive is expected to remain open. KENTUCKY A winter storm warning was in effect for three southeastern counties. Up to a foot of snow fell at high elevations along the West Virginia border. MAINE Wind gusts topped 60 mph, shutting down the port of Portland and knocking out power to homes and businesses. Power outages: More than 86,000. MARYLAND Floodwaters swamped touristy Ocean City. In western Maryland, up to two feet of snow tied up traffic. Three people were killed, including a man who died when a tree fell on a house in Pasadena. Power outages: 290,000. MASSACHUSETTS Strong winds and heavy surf led to mandatory evacuations in sections of coastal Dartmouth and Fall River and voluntary evacuations in other coastal communities. Power outages: About 290,000. MICHIGAN Cargo shipping on the Great Lakes was at a standstill because of waves of up to 20 feet. High winds knocked out power to about 79,000 homes and businesses. NEW HAMPSHIRE Politicians canceled visits to the presidential swing state on Monday. A construction worker checking on a job site in Lincoln, N.H., was killed in a landslide. Power outages: 164,500, down from a peak of 210,000. NEW JERSEY The center of the storm came ashore Monday evening near Atlantic City, which was cut off from the mainland by the storm surge along with other barrier islands, stranding residents who ignored warnings to evacuate.

With a week until Election Day, the nasty campaign tactics are coming out. The film was mailed for free to some seven million homes. The film claims that Obama's real father was Frank Marshall Davis, a communist agitator, author and poet who lived in Hawaii, not the former Kenyan goat herder who shares the president's name. Both men are deceased

purged from the rolls. “A nonregistered voter who casts a vote in the State of Florida may be subject to arrest, imprisonment, and/or other criminal sanctions,” warns one of the official-looking letters complete with eagle-and-flag logo, which appear to have been aimed mainly at registered Republicans. Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner has asked all of the state’s supervisors of elections to report any similar letters. There could also be federal charges against those responsible. Voting rights advocates also say there have been scattered complaints of bosses ordering employees to support a particular presidential candidate or face job repercussions. And in the past, students and other groups have been the targets of robocalls falsely saying they can vote on the day after Election Day if the lines are too long. Marshall said such misinformation tactics surface election after election because it’s not illegal in most states to deceive someone about the timing or place of an election, or to lie about a candidate’s political affiliation. Most laws, he said, are more geared toward preventing voter intimidation and ensuring physical access to polling places. Those who do get caught in deception usually claim it was all a big misunderstanding. “It’s very difficult to stop,” he said. “The tactics have evolved but the law hasn’t.”

research into Obama’s family background. The DVD, “Dreams from My Real Father,” posits that the president’s true father was a communist agitator, author and poet living in Hawaii named Frank Marshall Davis not the Kenyan man who shares the president’s name. Both men are now dead. The title is a reference to Obama’s book about his family history. That book does mention a poet named “Frank” who was a friend of Obama’s maternal grandfather. In an interview, DVD director Joel Gilbert described himself as a nonpartisan independent who seeks only to tell what he views as an extremely important story. Gilbert said he did not coordinate distribution of the DVD with any political entity and also took no political contributions to finance it. Yet the DVD was targeted at voters in key battleground states, including 1.5 million in Florida and 1.2 million in Ohio, according to Gilbert’s website. “It’s a publicity measure,” he said of the free mail distribution. “This has been an effort to force and embarrass the media into covering the content of the film.” Gilbert declined to disclose how the DVD and its distribution were financed, saying his production company is private and not required to. He has also made what he calls “mockumentaries” exploring whether former Beatle Paul McCartney might really be dead as was rumored in the 1960s and finding Elvis Presley alive and living as a federal agent in Southern California. He has also done films on Islamic-Jewish relations and Iran’s strategic ambitions. Obama campaign spokesman Adam Fetcher declined comment on the DVD. Another mysterious batch of mailings to voters in at least 23 Florida counties is being investigated by the FBI and state officials. These anonymous letters, which were postmarked from Seattle, raise questions about the voter’s citizenship and provide a form that supposedly must immediately be filled out and returned to elections officials. Otherwise, the letter says, the voter’s name will be

MIAMI (AP) — With a week to go until Election Day, the nasty campaign tactics are coming out. People in Florida, Virginia and Indiana have gotten calls falsely telling them they can vote early by phone and don’t need to go to a polling place. In suburban Broward County, Fla., a handful of elderly voters who requested absentee ballots say they were visited by unknown people claiming to be authorized to collect the ballots. And there’s a mysterious DVD popping up in mailboxes that purports to be a documentary raising questions about the true identity of President Barack Obama’s father. It’s one more indication of just how close this presidential election is. Voting rights advocates say reports of political deception and underhandedness are on the rise. “Unfortunately it seems like the shadowy individuals that want to prevent people from voting are doing things earlier,” said Eric Marshall, legal mobilization manager at the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. The organization is part of a coalition called Election Protection that is monitoring voting access and rights nationwide, including a tollfree hotline set up to take complaints. “Each American’s vote matters. It’s important to them and it’s important to the community,” Marshall said. Indiana’s secretary of state launched an investigation of the phony voting instructions being phoned to homes in that state, and Virginia officials issued a warning to voters there asking them to report any such calls. In the Broward County, Fla., case, elderly voters “were told, ‘I’m an official and I’m here to pick up your absentee ballot,’” said Alma Gonzalez, a senior Florida Democratic Party official working on voter protection efforts. “There is no official who picks up your ballot.” In addition to those cases, garish billboards warning that voter fraud is a crime punishable by jail time and fines were put up in minority neighborhoods in Ohio and Wisconsin. They were recently taken down amid complaints they were aimed at intimidating African-American and Latino voters. The people behind the billboards have not come forward. “It’s hard to believe that these were just public service announcements,” Marshall said. “Those neighborhoods were specifically targeted.” “It doesn’t pass the smell test.” Independent Florida voter Jane Bowman smelled something bad, too, when she recently discovered a DVD in her mailbox questioning the identity of Obama’s father. “I think it’s just a dirty trick. It just astonished me,” said Bowman, a Jacksonville resident who says she plans to vote for Obama as she did four years ago. “I think they’re doing everything they can to win Florida. It’s a sorry situation.” The DVD’s director, who says he has mailed some 7 million copies to homes in swing states, says that he is unaffiliated with political campaigns or their supporters and that the film reflects his own painstaking

Tell your boyfriend it’s over, and mean it Dear Annie: In the 20 years I've been with my partner, I've had suspicions that he's cheated. Whenever I confront him, he becomes angry and tries to turn it around on me. I finally decided I had to know, so I bought mini digital voice recorders and left them on in the house whenever I'd leave for work. Lo and behold, my suspicions were correct. My problem now is how to confront him with the proof. I'm not proud that I've been spying on him for weeks. But he would never own up to his cheating unless it was indisputable. I know he will be angry with me, but what he has done is totally wrong. He keeps telling me we need to work on us. How is that possible when he makes a phone call to his "girlfriend" every morning after I leave for work? This is making me physically ill. — Had To Know Dear Had: Your boyfriend's behavior made you suspicious, so you took the step of finding proof. And you found it. Stop berating yourself for doing a little private detective work. Your boyfriend is cheating. He will continue to make excuses and try to put the blame on you. Tell him what you discovered, show him the proof, and tell him it's over. And mean it. Dear Annie: Christmas is just around the corner. Teachers appreciate the gifts from their students, but I know many teachers who spend their own money on classroom needs. Please suggest that students consider giving teachers a gift card to places that offer school supplies and also for coffee shops, microwave soups and other consumables. Similarly, our senior citizens could benefit from practical items like store and restaurant gift cards, postage stamps, etc. They do not need any more knickknacks to gather dust. — J.M. Dear J.M.: You have made some excellent, sensible suggestions, and we hope those who are giving holiday gifts to teachers and seniors will keep them in mind. Dear Annie: I felt a need to respond to "Enough," the 57-yearold male who has been divorced for 26 years and hasn't dated for the past three. He is adamant that he will date only women he finds physically attractive (translation: not fat), but his family feels he is cutting himself off from meeting some very nice women. I am a 52-year-old female, divorced for two years and built like a plus-size model. I am intelligent, witty, neat, well-dressed, make a decent living and am told I am pretty. I had one blind date with a man I met through an online dating service. We had emailed each other for a week and chatted on the phone several times. I figured we had had such great conversations that my looks wouldn't matter. I was wrong. He said there was no "spark." I then tried to hire a professional matchmaker, and when I described myself as "Rubenesque," she said she has a hard time finding men among her clientele willing to date women who wear a size larger than 12. While I have no interest in a man who would summarily dismiss me as a potential date solely based on my size, I am beginning to wonder where all the real men are. There have to be some decent guys out there who are not so shallow and ignorant. So far they appear to be pretty scarce. — Plus-Sized Good Catch Dear Catch: In all fairness, being attracted to someone is not insignificant. But just as beautiful people can seem ugly if they have rotten personalities, a person of any size can become attractive by discovering a kind, warm, funny, intelligent human being inside. The problem is, few people are willing to let those relationships blossom, giving outward appearance more "weight" than it deserves.

HOW TO PLAY: Complete the grid so that every row, column and 3x3 box contains every digit from 1 to 9 inclusively. Find answers to today’s puzzle in tomorrow’s Troy Daily News. MONDAY’S SOLUTION:


Baking soda is an all-time kitchen favorite Dear Heloise: Like many people, I keep a small box of baking soda in my refrigerator to absorb odors. I replace the box every few months or so. Not wanting to waste the baking soda, I move it under my kitchen sink and then use it to clean the kitchen sink and the bottoms of pots. — Eva W. in Florida You have discovered one of the reasons baking soda is an all-time favorite of mine! As a nonabrasive cleaner, nothing works better or is more economical. I have a multitude of hints for baking soda in my Heloise’s Baking Soda Hints and Recipes pamphlet. To receive one, send

Hints from Heloise Columnist $5 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (65 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Baking Soda, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 782795001. Need a handy container for your baking soda? Reuse an old, plastic, round grated-cheese container. Wash and dry, then fill it with

baking soda to use as needed for household chores. Just be sure to label it clearly, and keep it away from children and pets. — Heloise FROM CONCENTRATE Dear Readers: When purchasing fruit juice, have you ever wondered what the words “from concentrate” on the label mean? Well, water is taken out of the fruit when harvested, causing it to become “concentrated.” Once ready to make fruit juice, the concentrate is mixed with water during processing (essentially, restoring the juice to the way it originally was). — Heloise

BETTER SANDWICH Dear Heloise: I love to make sandwiches, lightly toasted, with melted cheese. When making a sandwich, take the bread, then layer the meat, followed by the cheese. Place both halves, cheese side up, in the toaster oven until melted. Now, when adding condiments to the sandwich, the cheese is on the inside, melted to the meat, not to the bread. Flip the cheese and meat from one slice of bread onto the other, and add the condiment directly to the bread. You can add condiments before finishing with any other ingredients. — S.D. in Tennessee

BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, Nov. 1, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel bored with existing partnerships, which causes you to feel tempted by someone else. (Don’t threaten something solid for a mere bonbon.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Expect a few surprises at work today. (Computer crashes, canceled meetings, broken equipment and staff shortages.) Nevertheless, a pleasant surprise also could occur. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Love at first sight is possible for many today. (Eyes across a crowded room and all that.) However, this is an accidentprone day for your children. Be vigilant! CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Unexpected company might knock at your door today. Small appliances could break down, or minor breakages could occur. Something will send your domestic routine into a tailspin. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is an accident-prone day, so be careful. Slow down and take it easy. Allow extra time for everything, and leave wiggle room for the unexpected. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Guard your possessions and your money against loss or theft today. If shopping, keep your receipts. Count your change, and make friends with your bank account! LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You’re full of excitement, because it feels like there’s more electricity in the air today. You want to do something different. Avoid bores. Be open to meeting new people who are interesting and unusual. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a restless day for you, but it could be full of stimulating, exciting opportunities. Stay flexible, and go with the flow. Secrets might come out. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Meetings could be canceled today. However, you also might meet a real character or perhaps a friend will do or say something that surprises you. New information could prompt you to modify your goals. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Some of you will develop a sudden crush on your boss or someone in authority. Do be aware that this is a fleeting thing. Today’s thrill will be gone very soon. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Unexpected opportunities to travel somewhere might fall into your lap today. Similarly, a chance to take a course or get further training in something might arise. Act quickly, because your window of opportunity will be brief. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Something unexpected could happen today regarding shared property, inheritances or insurance matters. Stay on top of your game. Assume nothing. YOU BORN TODAY You are confident and have abundant energy. Nevertheless, many people welcome your forceful attitude (although not all). People respect your honest, straightforward approach, and they admire your talents and technique. However, you need stimulation in your life! Your year ahead will focus primarily on partnerships and close friendships. You’re beginning a 29-year cycle wherein you will reinvent yourself!

REGIONAL ALMANAC As a result of weather-related difficulties caused by Superstorm Sandy, regional almanac information normally provided by the National Weather Service was not available Tuesday evening.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Wednesday, Oct. 31, the 305th day of 2012. There are 61 days left in the year. This is Halloween. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 31, 1517, Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the door of the Wittenberg Palace church, marking the start of the Protestant Reformation in Germany. On this date: • In 1795, English poet John Keats was born in London. • In 1941, the Navy destroyer USS Reuben James was torpedoed by a German U-boat off Iceland with

the loss of some 100 lives, even though the United States had not yet entered World War II. Work was completed on the Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota, begun in 1927. • In 1959, a former U.S. Marine showed up at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow to declare he was renouncing his American citizenship so he could live in the Soviet Union. His name: Lee Harvey Oswald. • In 1968, President Lyndon B. Johnson ordered a halt to all U.S. bombing of North Vietnam, saying he hoped for fruitful peace negotiations.

• In 1984, Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated by two Sikh (seek) security guards. • Today’s Birthdays: Former CBS anchorman Dan Rather is 81. Actor David Ogden Stiers is 70. Actor Brian Doyle-Murray is 67. Actress Deidre Hall is 64. Talk show host Jane Pauley is 62. Movie director Peter Jackson is 51. Actor Dermot Mulroney is 49. Actor Rob Schneider is 48. Country singer Darryl Worley is 48. Actor-comedian Mike O’Malley is 47. Rap performer Vanilla Ice (aka Rob Van Winkle) is 44. Actress Piper Perabo (PEER’-uh-boh) is 36.

18 more dead in Syrian violence activists called the heaviest and most widespread bombing campaign nationwide, on what was to be the final day of an internationally sanctioned truce that never took hold. The death toll for what was supposed to be a fourday cease-fire ending Monday exceeded 500. Activists speculated that the government’s heavy reliance on air power reflected its inability to roll back rebel gains, especially in the north of the country near the border with Turkey, where rebels have control of swathes of territory. The international community remains at a loss about how to stop the Syria violence. The U.S. and other Western and Arab nations have called on Assad to step down, while Russia, China and Iran continue to back him. In the latest fighting after nightfall Tuesday, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 18 civilians were killed in an airstrike and tank fire Tuesday in the Hajariyeh neighbor-

hood in the suburb of Douma, northeast of Damascus. The dead included four women and five children, the group said, adding that the toll could rise as residents were still searching through the rubble. Five rebel fighters were also killed in clashes with regime forces elsewhere in Douma, the group said. Amateur videos posted online showed a deep, rubble-filled crater in the middle of what appeared to be a poor neighborhood, with many walls collapsed in the blast. Men were seen chanting “God is great!” while pulling a mangled body from the rubble in one video. They used their hands to dig through cinder blocks and cement dust in another to uncover another dead body. In yet another video, a man standing in the destruction yells at the camera, “These are the accomplishments of Lakhdar Brahimi,” referring to the international envoy who proposed the recent, failed cease-fire.


BEIRUT (AP) — Airstrikes by Syrian jets and shells from tanks leveled a neighborhood in a restive city near the capital of Damascus on Tuesday, killing 18 people, and at least five rebel fighters died nearby in clashes with regime troops, activists said. The airstrikes on the city of Douma, northeast of the capital, left residents scampering over a huge expanse of rubble and using their hands to dig up mangled bodies, according to activist videos posted online. Scenes of vast destruction like those from Douma on Tuesday have grown more common as rebels seeking to topple President Bashar Assad have made gains on the ground, and Assad’s forces have responded with overwhelming air power. In the past weeks, antiregime activists say about 150 people have been killed a day in fighting. Since the uprising against Assad began in March 2011, they say 35,000 have died. Tuesday’s airstrikes came a day after what

Eagles win regional semi in OT BY JAMES FREEMAN Sports Intern


Weather didn’t stop Troy Christian from bringing a legion of fans to Hamilton High School on Tuesday night to witness its first Division III Regional semifinal appearance in school history. It took 27 extra minutes of overtime play to see those fans storm the field after the Eagles defeated Cincinnati Madeira 3-2 to advance to the regional final. “We were just excited to win

our district,” Troy Christian coach Brian Peters said. “To win our regional semifinal game and to have 200 people come out in this weather? Absolutely unbelievable.” Madeira looked to be in control from the early going, not allowing the Eagles any true offensive opportunity in the first half. Troy Christian was able to keep the game scoreless through most of the first half with a

strong and physical effort on defense. The problem became translating that defense into an offensive attack. “It was our game plan to take the wind against us in the first half,” Peters said. “That way we could have it in the second half in case we got into trouble.” The Mustangs best opportunity for a goal came with five minutes to go in the half when a through ball went perfectly to Madeira’s Shannon Williamson. Troy Christian thought they had

A corner kick went inside the 6-yard box and Williamson headed it into the net to make the score 1-0 at half. When the second half began, though, it was evident from the opening kick that the game wasn’t going to be the same.


Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller (5) looks to pass during the third period of an NCAA college football game against Penn State Saturday in State College, Pa. Ohio State won 35-23.

In the conversation Meyer, OSU coming around to Miller for Heisman COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer refused for weeks to even discuss quarterback Braxton Miller’s Heisman Trophy chances. Now Meyer, who coached a Heisman winner at Florida named Tim Tebow, is joining a growing number of those who think the Buckeyes sophomore might just be a viable contender. “Do I believe he’s a Heisman candidate? I do,” Meyer said this week. “I didn’t say that before. But I do believe Braxton is a Heisman candidate. He has to play much better. However, just from sheer production for a team that’s 9-0, it puts him in that category.”

It might not seem like a very bold statement, a coach simply citing his player’s chances. After all, every college player in America is technically a candidate. But Meyer’s words also have given others at Ohio State tacit approval to go ahead with a campaign to put Miller in the spotlight more. “By him agreeing that Braxton Miller is a Heisman Trophy candidate, that’s important,” Ohio State sports information director for football Jerry Emig said. “From this point forward, we’re going to let (Braxton’s) play on the field do most of his talking. Don’t get me wrong, hype is good. But I also

do think that Ohio State’s tradition and history dictates that hype for our players for these kinds of honors is earned and not created.” Based on what he’s done on the field, Miller deserves to be in the Heisman conversation. Last week in a 35-23 win at Penn State, Miller became the third Big Ten quarterback to top 1,000 yards rushing in a season. He is 11th in the country and first in the conference at 121 yards a game. His passing numbers are nothing special. He has completed 57 percent of his passes for 1,527 yards and 12 touchdowns with six interceptions.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Kyrie Irving scored 29 points, Anderson Varejao had a careerhigh 23 rebounds and the Cleveland Cavaliers opened the season with a 94-84 victory over the short-handed Washington Wizards on Tuesday night in the first game on the NBA schedule. Rookie Dion Waiters added 17 points for the Cavs, who led by 16 in the third quarter but needed big plays from Irving and Varejao in the final minutes to hold off the Wizards, who scored the first 14 points of the fourth. Varejao had a career-high nine assists, two setting up dunks by Tristan Thompson in the last two minutes. Jordan Crawford scored 11 points to lead the Wizards, who were without star point guard John Wall, power forward Nene and forward Kevin Seraphin. Wall, the former No. 1 overall pick, is expected to be out until late November with a knee injury. Irving, the NBA’s reigning rookie of the year, began his second season with a strong performance alongside Waiters, a surprising No. 4 overall pick. Waiters didn’t start a game at Syracuse, but Cavs coach Byron Scott has been impressed with his progress and wanted to pair his two young guards together from the outset.

NCAA approves tougher sanctions for rule-breakers INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA passed a package of sweeping changes Tuesday intended to crack down hard on rule-breaking schools and coaches. Under the new legislation, approved by the 13-member board of directors, programs that commit the most egregious infractions could face postseason bans of two to four years and fines stretching into the millions, while coaches could face suspensions of up to one year for violations committed by

their staffs. The board also approved measures to expand the penalty structure from two tiers to four, create new penalty guidelines and speed up the litigation process. The vote ends a movement that started in August 2011 during the midst of one of the most scandalous years in college sports history. NCAA President Mark Emmert was so concerned that he asked dozens of university leaders to join him at a presidential retreat in Indianapolis.

It was then that Emmert, along with school presidents and chancellors, said they were going to get tough on those who refused to play by the rules. Now they have. “We have sought all along to remove the ‘risk-reward’ analysis that has tempted people often because of the financial pressures to win at all costs to break the rules in the hopes that either they won’t be caught or that the consequences won’t be very harsh if they do get

caught,” Emmert said. “The new system the board adopted today is the result of a lot of hard work and membership input devoted to protecting the collegiate model.” Under the plan, violators found in a “serious breach of conduct” with aggravating circumstances could get those postseason bans and be forced to return millions of dollars from specific events or gross revenue generated by the sport during those years in which rules were broken.

Kelly won’t use history to motivate Notre Dame SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — The similarities between Notre Dame this season and the Fighting Irish squad from a decade ago are uncanny enough that it might make some fans a bit uncomfortable heading into Saturday’s game against Pittsburgh. A decade ago, a Notre Dame team that started the season unranked persuaded many college football fans it was for real when it won at then-No. 11 Florida State to improve to 8-0 and rise to a No. 4 ranking. That team was a 10-point underdog when it beat the Seminoles in the eighth game by breaking a second-half tie by scor-

ing 24 straight points to drop Florida State to 84-5-1 in its previous 90 home games. This year’s team has many fans believing it is real after starting the season unranked and winning at then-No. 8 Oklahoma to improve to 8-0 and rise to a No. 4 ranking. The Irish were 10-point underdogs when they beat the Sooners in the eighth game by breaking a second-half tie by scoring 17 straight points to drop Oklahoma to 79-5 in its last 84 home games. Following that 2002 win, Notre Dame appeared to have an easy path to a BCS. This time, the Irish again

appear to have an easy path to a BCS game with a threegame stretch against Pittsburgh (4-4), Boston College (2-6) and Wake Forest (4-4) before the season finale at Southern California (6-2). As any Irish fan can tell you, the ninth game of the 2002 season was the beginning of the end for thenfirst-year coach Tyrone Willingham. The Irish were favored by 10 points, but turned the ball over seven times while wearing green jerseys for motivation and lost 14-7 to Boston College. They then struggled to beat Navy, were trounced 44-13 at USC and

lost 28-6 to North Carolina State in the Gator Bowl. Coach Brian Kelly isn’t much interested in that history, though. “History will have no effect on how this team plays,” Kelly said. “What will affect how they play is how they prepare during the week. That is what I can control and that’s what our players can control. Our focus is on what we can control.” Kelly said he won’t use 2002 as a cautionary tale to remind his team to guard against a letdown against a Pitt team that has just as many wins as that Boston College team.

“I don’t use history lessons as much as I want them to realize what it takes to win week in and week out,” he said. “Look, there will be enough of that out there to kind of get to them. I don’t know if that from me is going to change the way we prepare.” Kelly said after the victory over Oklahoma on Saturday the Irish need to avoid looking at the big picture. “If we start listening to national championship and the BCS, we’ll lose a football game,” he said. “They’re a pretty smart group. They know that if they stick with what we’ve done and stick

with the process of just preparing for Pittsburgh, they’ll be fine. But if they start thinking about all those other things and listening, we’ll lose.” Linebacker Manti Te’o said the Irish players understand. “I think once we start paying attention to that, that’s when we’re going to get in trouble,” he said. But that didn’t stop Te’o from answering a question after the Oklahoma victory about whether he thinks the Irish are the best team. “I think we’re on our way. We have a lot of work to do but we’re definitely on our way,” he said.

McIlroy facing change Victim Smart Big marketing decisions looming for 23-year-old By The Associated Press Rory McIlroy’s decision to pursue a lucrative equipment deal was in place long before he grabbed a Nike golf club from Tiger Woods during their exhibition match in China and took a few practice swings. Changing equipment was inevitable. Boy Wonder is simply too big now. The 23-year-old from Northern Ireland is no longer a U.S. Open champion with a massive upside. He fulfilled a big chunk of that potential this year with four wins, including an eight-shot win at the PGA Championship and back-toback wins in the FedEx Cup playoffs against two of the strongest fields of the year. He is a lock for PGA Tour player of the year and the Vardon Trophy, all the awards Woods used to win. McIlroy is a marketing dream, which made him worth too much to stay with Titleist. Acushnet, the parent company, has a history of promoting its brand through numbers instead of a name. That’s why it didn’t stand in the way when Woods switched to the Swoosh, why it didn’t put up a fight to keep Sergio Garcia a decade ago, and why it let Phil Mickelson out of his contract just four months after Lefty’s popularity soared with his first major win at the 2004 Masters. And why it announced Tuesday that its relationship with McIlroy will end this year. Golfers go through change all the time agents, caddies, coaches. Switching equipment can be a tricky transition, and there is a long list of players who have struggled with it over the years. What makes McIlroy’s next move so interesting is that no other player who was No. 1 in the world made such a wholesale change so early in his career. “I call it dangerous,” sixtime major champion Nick Faldo said Tuesday morning on Golf Channel. “I’ve changed clubs and changed equipment, and every manufacturer will say, ‘We can copy your clubs, we can tweak the golf ball so it fits you.’ But there’s feel and

praises PSU for conference

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Rescued kidnapping victim Elizabeth Smart said Tuesday that Penn State’s inaugural conference on child sexual abuse is a way to promote discussion about crimes that drew more attention after the molestation scandal involving former university assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. Smart, after recounting her sexual abuse by a kidnapper during months of captivity at age 14 starting in 2002, called the confer-

ence an “incredible opportunity to not only change the community but change the nation … to change how we do things, how we look at victims and how we work around them.” Smart was the keynote speaker on Tuesday, the final day of the three-day conference on child sexual abuse’s impact and prevention, held nearly a year after Sandusky’s arrest last Nov. 5 on charges he abused several boys plunged the university into turmoil.

You can’t put a real value on that.” All signs point to McIlroy signing with Nike, with one industry observer saying the deal could be worth upward of $20 million a year. Adding to the speculation is whether Woods helped to recruit the kid. They have been extraordinarily chummy since August, and Woods raves about McIlroy. That’s not unusual. McIlroy is wellmannered, respectful and doesn’t take himself too seriously. He’s fun to be around. Woods and David Duval also became close toward the end of 2000, when they played together in the World Cup in Argentina and then flew together on Woods’ private jet to start the year at Kapalua. It wasn’t long before Duval, in a legal dispute with Titleist, signed on with Nike. A Nike official said it would not comment on “rumors and speculation,”

not even when it would announce its roster for the 2013 season. Nike has money to spend, and McIlroy won’t be the only player added to the Swoosh stable next year. Two people with knowledge of his plans say Nick Watney is headed from Titleist to Nike. It might look as if McIlroy is headed down the same path as Woods, but the difference is in how they change equipment. Woods spent five years switching out his equipment from Titleist to Nike, with an additional five years to leave his old Scotty Cameron putter. McIlroy would have only two months. When he turned pro in 1996, Woods had a five-year deal with Nike that was mainly about brand and apparel. He also had a fiveyear deal with Titleist for equipment. The long-term deal with Nike (renewals of five years and seven years,

with the stakes going up each time), allowed Woods to change equipment at his own pace. He went to the Nike golf ball at a European Tour event in Germany in 2000, and then went on to win the next four majors. He didn’t go to the Nike driver until February 2002 at Pebble Beach, and then he won the first two majors that year (though he briefly went back to the Titleist driver in the summer). Woods went to the Nike irons at a World Golf Championship in Ireland in 2002, one week before the Ryder Cup, which led to a memorable exchange. Asked why he would switch irons a week before such a big event like the Ryder Cup, Woods said to a reporter, “Off the record? Because the majors are over.” When asked for a comment on the record, Woods paused and said, “Because the majors are over.”

players for awards. That includes curmudgeonly coach Woody Hayes, a larger-than-life figure who was fine with the hype machine helping out Archie Griffin, the only two-time Heisman Trophy winner (1974-75). “Woody was never concerned about promoting a player, although everyone would probably think he was diametrically opposed to it,” said Marv Homan, who worked in Ohio State’s athletic communications department from 1949-87. “Woody knew Archie’s popularity with the team, and he was not concerned with singling him out for attention. He knew it would be

the same Archie Griffin showing up every day at practice and every Saturday for games.” Back then, Ohio State would include a special set of statistics highlighting Griffin’s gaudy accomplishments. Opposing coaches raving about Griffin’s balance and cutting ability would also be a part of the package. The numbers — 5,589 career yards rushing, seasons of 1,577 and 1,695 yards as a junior and senior when the Buckeyes went 21-3 — spoke volumes. Now Miller is approaching the end of a long season. Ohio State is banned from

the postseason so he won’t have a bowl game to further prove himself. But Heisman voting is completed in early December, so that is a moot point. Meyer coached Tebow at Florida when he won the Heisman in 2008. Miller is only a sophomore, but so was Tebow, who was the first sophomore to win the bronze statuette. “I have a little experience at that award,” Meyer said. “Braxton has to play much better. However, I believe he is a candidate.” If the first step is just being identified as a contender, then Miller’s cam-

■ CONTINUED FROM 12 “I think (at halftime) they realized that they wanted to win,” Peters said. Troy Christian set the tone by crushing the ball all the way down toward the goal and a high-hop cleared keeper’s head, but it was just to the right of the goal. But nine minutes into the half, Troy Christian had a corner kick opportunity that was deflected by Morgan Haddad to Lauren Peters, who was able to score the equalizer. While the Troy Christian fans were still celebrating the game-tying goal, Madeira moved down the field and was able to score a controversial goal. It appeared as if Maddie Rench had made a spectacular header to keep the ball from crossing the goal line, but the referees convened and agreed that it was a goal, giving the Mustangs took a 2-1 lead. It was only four minutes later when the Mustangs made a similar play, but it was not ruled a goal. When the ball was cleared, it went to the foot of Taylor Curtis, who lofted a long ball toward the goal. The goal keeper could not make a play on the ball, allowing Lydia Demmitt to tie the game at 2-2. The two teams played back-and-forth for the remaining 25 minutes of the half until the whistle

blew to signal overtime. “I told the girls that the team that’s going to win the game is the team that wins the ball,” Peters said. “We carried that over into both of the overtimes.” The first overtime played much like the end of the first half. Each team had their opportunities, but aggressive defense thwarted either team from netting the game-winner. As the clock began to tick closer and closer to zero in the second overtime, fans began to anticipate a shootout. Morgan Haddad and Lauren Peters were not thinking about a shootout and decided to end the game. Peters took a direct kick and lofted it towards the goal. Haddad put a head on it and gave Troy Christian the dramatic victory. “To win the game on a set piece — a nice little chip and header — these are things that we work on over and over again.” Peters said. “I could not be prouder.” The fans that made the trip could not be prouder as the students rushed the team after the victory and joined the players and coaches in their prayer circle after the game. Weather didn’t keep them from cheering their school to victory and it won’t stop them from following them to the regional final on Saturday.

■ College Football

Miller ■ CONTINUED FROM 12 A shifty runner, Miller is at his breathtaking best in the open field. He has runs this season of 72, 67, 65, 55, 37 yards, three of 33 yards, and another for 31 yards. Individual stats are one thing, but Miller’s candidacy has gotten another boost because he has been the linchpin of a team with a 90 record and is ranked No. 6 in the nation. So don’t be surprised if Ohio State flexes its PR muscles to try to help Miller become the school’s eighth Heisman winner. The university has never been shy about promoting

paign is already well under way. Ohio State doesn’t plan on putting his face on coffee mugs, T-shirts or mouse pads and mailing them out to Heisman voters. “I’m not certain that we need to have any kind of gimmick,” Emig said. “The whole goal of hype is name recognition. If you plug in the terms ‘Braxton Miller’ and ‘Heisman’ in a search engine, right now you’re going to generate 415,000 hits. I just did that a short while ago.” So it’s still basically up to Miller and how the rest of the season goes. The Buckeyes play lowly Illinois

at home on Saturday, then have a bye week before playing at Wisconsin and closing the season against rival Michigan. If Miller continues to play well, and Ohio State continues to win, things will take care of themselves. Meanwhile, the guy who stands to be Miller’s campaign manager is standing by, watching closely. “If there’s something that needs to be done just to cement that ‘this is the guy,’” Emig said, “We’ll be in a position to do something to secure some top-of-mind recognition as we head into that first week in December.”

Cavaliers ■ CONTINUED FROM 12 They played well in spurts, but made enough mistakes to keep Scott from giving them too much freedom. The Cavs seemed to be on their way to a relatively routine win, but in a league where players are fond of saying “every team makes a run,” the Wizards made theirs. Down 61-45 in the third quarter and looking flat, Washington opened the AP PHOTO fourth with its 14-0 spurt, Cleveland Cavaliers’ Kyrie Irving (2) drives through taking a 76-74 lead when a crowd of Washington Wizards defenders Tuesday Jannero Pargo drained a 3in Cleveland. pointer from the corner. The

Wizards rallied while Irving was getting some rest, and it wasn’t long before Scott sent his young star back in to help restore order. Irving’s driving layup in traffic gave Cleveland an 82-80 lead, and he calmly stepped up and drained a 21-foot jumper to put the Cavaliers ahead 86-80. With the Cavs up by four, Varejao, the Cavs’ 6foot-11 bundle of energy, fed Thompson underneath for a dunk to make it 88-84. Crawford made two free throws for Washington, and on Cleveland’s next posses-

sion, Irving made a spin move in the lane and passed it to Varejao, who then upstaged his slick passing teammate with a feed to Thompson for another dunk. Irving then rebounded a miss by the Wizards and it was his turn to pick up an assist to Thompson. Wizards rookie Bradley Beal scored eight points — all in the first half — and Emeka Okafor had 10 points. Washington coach Randy Wittman has high hopes for his young team, but he won’t know what he has until he gets Wall and

Nene back on the court. Despite Cleveland’s youth — an average age of 24.9 years — and inexperience, Irving believes the Cavs can contend for a playoff spot this season. “That’s the goal,” he said. The Cavs were in the playoff conversation for the first few months last season before Varejao broke his wrist and missed the final 41 games. As has been the case in the past, Varejao may draw trade interest from other teams and it will be interesting to see if the Cavs hang on to a player with unique talents.

Heat topple Celtics

Tigers bring back manager Leyland

MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James got his ring, then got cramps. The Miami Heat found a way to beat their biggest rival anyway. Dwyane Wade scored 29 points, James finished 26 points and 10 rebounds while missing much of the second half, and the reigning NBA champion Heat beat the Boston Celtics 120-107 on Tuesday night in the season opener for both teams. Ray Allen, in his first game with Miami since leaving Boston over the summer, added 19 points for the Heat, as did Chris Bosh, who had a late flurry that helped Miami prevail. Rashard Lewis scored 10 for Miami, which saw a 19-point lead trimmed to four in the final minutes before finding a way to close it out — even while James, last season’s MVP of both the regular season and NBA Finals, was in the locker room for the second time because of the cramps. Paul Pierce scored 23 points, Rajon Rondo finished with 20 points and 13 assists, and Leandro Barbosa scored 16 for Boston. The Celtics, who lost to the Heat in last season’s Eastern Conference finals, were not on the court for the ring ceremony. They almost wrecked the festive mood with a late comeback.

Browns building some momentum Pro sports leagues By the Associated Press Halfway through the season, the Browns have won half as many games as they did in 2011, before anyone in Cleveland ever heard of Jimmy Haslam III. The Browns were 3-3 after six games last year and 1-9 the rest of the way. They are 2-6 this season after a 0-5 start. Haslam was awarded a game ball in the locker room Sunday after the Browns beat the Chargers, 7-6, in the cold, wind and rain at Cleveland Browns Stadium. The new Browns owner emerged clutching that ball tightly in his left hand and shaking hands of well-wishers with his right. Moments earlier, he held up the ball and talked to the players who are eager to please him. “Since I’ve been here it’s just been ‘We’re happy we got a win, OK — phew,’” tight end Alex Smith, in his third year with the Browns, said Monday in the locker room. “Now we’re developing a culture. We’re just trying to keep on this path of (going up). “I think it hit home even more when (Haslam) came in and talked to us. That was pretty much the bottom line. He said, ‘I’m about winning. Whoever’s on board, we’ll be good.’ That was kind of awakening everybody — it’s go time. Of course we were already aware of that, but to hear that from the big guy puts a little more

effort into it. Even after the game ball, he said, ‘You know what, let’s get greedy and get another win.’ That was his final message to us and that’s where everybody is right now.’” At the end of the season, Haslam will determine the fate of Coach Pat Shurmur and the coaching staff as well as the front office. The atmosphere in the locker room is different than it was a year ago. In 2011, no one knew what was going on in Peyton Hillis’ head. The players all believe in rookie running back Trent Richardson and they believe brighter days are ahead because of rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden, rookie receiver Josh Gordon, the young linebackers and defensive line. Twenty-seven players on the roster have played less than two full seasons. “Obviously, record-wise we’re not where I want to be right now,” Shurmur said Monday. “But I see a team that’s battling. I see a team that’s with me every step of the way. And they believe in their coaches. And I see a team that’s improving. I’m hopeful we’re going to continue to make those improvements and win a heck of a lot of games.” The 0-5 start put the Browns in a deep hole. Had Gordon not dropped a sure pass in Indianapolis, they might be riding a threegame winning streak into their game with the Ravens on Sunday. The

plan around Sandy By the Associated Press


Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson (33) runs the ball against the San Diego Chargers in an NFL football game Sunday in Cleveland. Browns caught a break of their own against the Chargers when Robert Meachem dropped a ball that should have resulted in a San Diego touchdown. “We function better as a team (since the first game),” Shurmur said. “Our young skilled players on offense are better, and we’re getting production. We’ve won two games in the last three weeks. So let’s call it for what it is. “We’re getting some defensive players back

(cornerback Joe Haden, defensive tackle Phil Taylor, defensive Ahtyba Rubin, linebacker JamesMichael Johnson) that will help us. If you function better and you’re playing better and you win a couple games and you’re getting some players back that can help you win, that helps me stay positive.” Beating Baltimore would be a huge step for the Browns. They have lost nine straight games to the Ravens.

With much of the Northeast immersed in the recovery from Superstorm Sandy’s devastating blow, the NFL and NBA plan to carry on with their schedules. The New York City Marathon is still hoping that the course will be clear by Sunday and runners will be able to get to the starting line in Staten Island. NBA spokesman Tim Frank on Tuesday said through his Twitter account the season-opening games Tuesday night in Miami, Los Angeles and Cleveland — the Wizards flew out of Washington Monday 7 a.m. — are set to tip off on time. “For the many asking: Tonight’s NBA games will be played. We are still assessing the situation with regards to the rest of the week,” he tweeted. Of concern: Philadelphia is supposed to host its opener on Wednesday. And the Nets’ first game at their new Brooklyn home against the crosstown-rival Knicks on Thursday could be in jeopardy, too. The new arena is heavily dependent on mass transit and with the New York City subways and commuter rail out for what is expected to be several days, the league may choose to postpone that party if fans are kept away. Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin believes Sunday’s game in Jersey against the New York

Giants to go on as scheduled and plans to prepare that way. Tomlin said he understands the league will be looking at any logistical issues caused by the storm’s aftermath may present but added the Steelers will stick to their weekly routine unless they hear from NFL officials. Tomlin might have to wait a day for the final word. All 32 teams were notified Monday that the league’s offices would be closed through Tuesday. The NFL had already moved its trade deadline back two days to Thursday because of potential complications from the storm. The deadline now is 4 p.m. EDT Thursday, when waivers for vested veterans also begin. Around the league, the Giants, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles reported no damage at their practice facilities. The Baltimore Ravens, though, were running a generator at their complex. Players were off but the hope is electricity will be restored for regular practice Wednesday. Five days before 50,000 runners take to the course that meanders through the streets of New York City’s five boroughs, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he expects the marathon to go on scheduled. Race organizers were moving forward with their plans — leaving open the possibility of changes from past years.

Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable.
