Consumers give economy a lift
THS grads recount storm’s impact, aftermath
A flurry of data issued Thursday sketched a brightening view of the U.S. economy in the final days before a presidential election that will pivot on the strength of the recovery. Cheaper gas, rising home prices and lower unemployment have given consumers the confidence to spend more. And retailers, auto dealers and manufacturers are benefiting.
Laura Metro-Reed and fellow THS graduate Amy Ehlers Hebert recently shared how Superstorm Sandy continues to affect their lives days after the storm ravaged the East Coast. BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer email@example.com AP

Laura Metro-Reed, a 1992 graduate of Troy High School, wasn’t quite expecting her first few weeks as a
new Connecticut resident to be so bumpy. Reed — who is one of two native Trojans who battled Superstorm Sandy — recently moved from Centerville to Redding, Conn. with her husband Ernie and three children. They still are without power. Reed was on her way to Dover Air Force Base to stay at her sister’s home with her three children. Reed said once she heard power would-
n’t be restored in Redding until Monday or Tuesday of next week, she decided to head six hours south to stay at her sister Kelly’s home in Delaware. Reed’s two older children’s school has been cancelled for the rest of the week as well. “We’ve only been here for six weeks,” Reed said of Redding, which is located a half an hour north of

Be part of the change All we hear anymore is how disconnected politicians are with our needs and how the D.C. Beltway is out of touch. But, we have let it get that way — it’s our own fault. I’m not asking for a revolution or a march to the D.C. Mall, but we can start small. Just like the food movement, go local. Look no further than your local city council or board of education meetings, township meetings and meetings about meetings. Almost 75 percent of the time, our elected officials are talking to the wall or to the video camera. See Page 5.

Brandt pleads guilty to six rape charges Faces 60 years-to-life sentence BY WILL E SANDERS Ohio Community Media email@example.com An adoptive father of three juveniles accused of raping the children and compelling child prostitution via online advertisements agreed to plea bargain in common pleas court Thursday that secures his cooperation in the case 6 and stipulates a prison sentence of
between 60 years to life. Kenneth H. Brandt, 40, of Troy, entered guilty pleas to six firstdegree felony rape counts as a result of the plea agreement, which dismissed 25 similar rape counts. Miami County Prosecutor Gary Nasal said Brandt could be called to testify against another man charged in the child rape case, Jason Zwick, 29, of Beavercreek.
TROY Zwick is scheduled to take his case to trial Tuesday. He has entered not guilty pleas to three counts of rape involving children. Nasal reserved all other comment until after Brandt’s sentencing, which has yet to be scheduled and will take place at the conclusion of the Zwick case. Brandt and Zwick were indicted by a Miami County grand jury in March.
Brandt, and another suspect, P a t r i c k Rieder, 31, of Dayton, also face several rape and sexr e l a t e d charges in BRANDT Montgomery County and those cases are still pending.

Stanford. “We lost a few trees and all the roads were blocked and we lost power.” Reed said her family prepared the best they could prior to the storm’s landfall on Monday evening including driving a half an hour for bottled water and a few other supplies. “Luckily one of the first things we bought here was a generator,” Reed said. Reed said the generator helped power the refrigerator and power their cell phones during the power outages. Reed also said the local high school had opened for residents to shower since many use well water powered by electricity. Reed said traveling to her sister’s home in Delaware was their plan since she has three children under the age of 11 and hasn’t showered since the storm hit Monday. “You have to use a lot of creativity and we spent much of the day playing games,” Reed said. During the storm, Reed said the wind was “pretty intense” and reminded her and her husband of the sound of a freight train often associated with Midwestern tornadoes. “Once we heard that sound, my husband and I just looked at each other because it sounded like a tornado would back in Ohio,” Reed said. Reed also suffered a gooseegg bump on her forehead as she stood outside to let her dogs out during the storm. A large clock blew off the house and struck her in the head. “Good thing it didn’t knock me out,” Reed said with a laugh. Reed also said they used their propane gas grill to cook their food and neighbors checked in on the new family. “It was pretty amazing how the
Red Cross: How you can help The American Red Cross has a huge relief response under way to assist victims of Superstorm Sandy, providing people across a number of states with shelter, food and comfort during this difficult time. Thousands of people have spent the night in hundreds of Red Cross shelters since the storm began its onslaught on the country. The Red Cross has already served more than 100,800 meals and snacks and mobilized more than 2,300 disaster workers and almost 200 emergency vehicles so far and more are being deployed. “This response to Sandy is just getting started. The storm has left devastation in its wake and we will be helping wind just was so intense,” Reed said. “I don’t know what we were really expecting but thankfully we didn’t get a whole lot of water.” Reed said she appreciated her hometown’s thought and prayers during the storm. “Redding has been a really good community of people. It reminded me a lot of Troy and that’s why we chose to live here,” Reed said. “It took Sandy to bring us all together.” Reed added, “We are so grateful for all the support and prayers from everybody back home.”
A TREE FELL IN BROOKLYN For Amy Ehlers Hebert, weathering the storm in the borough of Brooklyn was an experience like no other in the 11 years she’s been a New Yorker. “It was definitely devastating,” said Hebert, also a 1992 graduate of Troy High School. “It was definitely more than I expected. It was like a war zone on my street. This was probably the worst storm because of the wind.” Although life slowly was going back to normal Wednesday night, Hebert said the lack of noise was one experience she’ll unlikely forget.
NEW YORK (AP) — Frustration and in some cases fear mounted in New York City on Thursday, three days after Superstorm Sandy. Traffic backed up for miles at bridges, large crowds waited impatiently for buses into Manhattan, and tempers flared in gas lines. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the city would send bottled water and ready-to-eat meals into the hardest-hit neighborhoods through the weekend, but some New Yorkers grew dispirited after days without power, water and heat and decided to get out. “It’s dirty, and it’s getting a little crazy down there,” said Michael Tomeo, who boarded a bus to Philadelphia with his 4-yearold son. “It just feels like you wouldn’t want to be out at night. Everything’s pitch

Hebert said grocery stores were wiped out of milk and bread prior to the storm and even after it had passed. “All the bread was gone, even on Tuesday afternoon because the bread truck couldn’t get through the streets because they are all blocked,” Hebert said Wednesday. Herbert’s home in Bay Ridge was not in an evacuation zone and did not flood like other low lying areas of New York City. Hebert’s young daughter Hailey was finally able to go back to school on Thursday. A training administrator for New York City, Hebert also was to report back to work, although at a satellite office in downtown Brooklyn. Her office in lower Manhattan lost power and closed. “The subways are still shut down and I’ve heard the line for the bus is atrocious,” Hebert said. Hebert said she knows she and her family were lucky in terms of their safety and also was thankful for the thoughts and prayers during the super storm. “We were fortunate,” Hebert said. “This will be something we will be talking about for quite some time.”

“No cars, no people were out and about,” Hebert said of the hours after the storm. “No one was out and not to see a single person or hear a car was eerie.” Hebert said several large trees were uprooted and one partially landed on the roof outside of her limestone row house in Brooklyn. Other trees lined the street and crushed parked cars. “Our street was hit the worst,” Hebert said. “You couldn’t drive down the street and trucks and workers to clear the streets were blocked.” Luckily a neighbor flagged down a member of the parks department who was able to clear the tree from her home and its windows. “Having that tree so close to the window, and you didn’t know if it’d move, made me so nervous,” Hebert said. Hebert said her family’s home never lost power or Internet service, yet cell phone service was completely down and she made calls by land line. “We’ve had a blizzard before, but that was easy compared to this because at least with snow you can move it out of the way,” she said.

ith people updating their social networking pages from their PDAs and downloading favorite tunes from their mobile phones, it should come as no surprise society has grown increasingly reliant on technology. Individuals about to dive into the job-seeking market may have to rethink their search skills to maximize the potential of reaching employers and companies that likely embrace a digital mind set. As of June 2009, the U.S. unemployment rate reached 9.7 percent, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.This means there are a great deal of people â€” from the recently laid off to the newly graduated â€” who are all vying for the same jobs. Thinking creatively and exploring numerous ways of advertising oneself can help land a job in todayâ€™s market. Newspaper: The newspaper has long been a respected and effective means to find work. It is still a viable way to find jobs that are local without having to search through hundreds and hundreds of positions, which is common with online job posting sites. However, why not turn the tables and use the newspaper â€” and its respective online site â€” to advertise yourself? For a relatively low investment of time and money, you can place a classified ad that you are seeking work and briefly explain your credentials. Create a separate, free e-mail address with your favorite mail provider specifically for receiving inquiries to this advertisement. Personal Web site: Employers are short on time and many want to exert the least amount of energy possible when seeking job candidates. A personal Web page can put your information in the hands of employers in a concise and eye-catching way.The Web page can feature a brief description of yourself and also include a digital resume. Simply provide a link to your site when applying for a job. Remember, a personal Web site should be all business. Now is not the time for a pretty picture or stories about your pets. Employers are looking for skills. Be bold with buzzwords: Turn your experience into a list of buzzwords, keywords and important phrases when writing a resume. It used to be that verbs were the key to landing a job. Using strong action words should relay your experience. However, today resumes are frequently reviewed by a digital eye, rather than a human eye. This digital eye is programmed to recognize certain words and phrases that will sort your resume out from the others. Including the right keywords ensures your resume has a better chance of being picked. Use as many words as you can that were included in the original job posting â€” theyâ€™re likely to be programmed keywords. Most of these words are nouns that signal job titles, technical skills and levels of education or experience. Use social networking sites to your advantage: Employers and recruiters have admitted they frequently go to social networking sites, such as MySpace, Facebook and LinkedIn to â€œcheck upâ€? on potential hires â€” or even employees they already have on staff. Many a person has compromised his or her chances for hire by questionable material posted on their pages. Instead of being a victim of the pitfalls of social networking, use it to your advantage. Seed your pages with information that may be interesting to a potential employer by doing a little research. For example, if you know a certain company to which youâ€™d like to apply places significant emphasis on the environment, list the â€œgreenâ€? functions youâ€™ve attended and the groups to which you

Keeping up with the digital world could be the key to landing your next job. belong on your page. Know a hiring manager is an avid golfer? Talk about your passion for the game. Itâ€™s these little things that may get you in the door to an interview. Think differently: There are some people who want to take their job search to another level.With the market saturated by job seekers, sometimes itâ€™s the person who has the nerve to stand out from the crowd that will land the job. Today itâ€™s not uncommon to find door-todoor solicitation of jobs, people posting job requests on YouTube or similar sites, or even standing in a busy downtown area with a sign that says, â€œLooking for Work.â€? Others turn to popular blogs to get the word out. The more people who know youâ€™re looking for work, the better chance you will find a position. Technology is technology: There are certain tips you should keep in mind when applying for jobs: - Scanners that look at resumes work well with these typefaces: Helvetica, Courier, Futura, Optima, Palatino, New Century Schoolbook, and Times. And they work best with type sizes in the 10to 14-point range. - Donâ€™t send your resume as an attachment, or include any attachments, unless specified. There are always concerns about computer viruses and attachments can even get lost. Paste everything into the body of your e-mail. - Use the subject line of an e-mail as a theater marquee and sell yourself. - Use the proofreading/spell-check functions of your word processing software, but also print out your materials and read them over. Thereâ€™s no excuse to be excluded from a job because of a silly typo. - Follow-up with all job applications. It could move your resume to the top of the pile.

— First Amendment, U.S. Constitution
AS I SEE IT
Government needs to cut its spending BY SUSAN SPITLER Ludlow Falls Just like most of you, I am so weary of all the phone calls and misleading and false ads. I am completely disgusted with the huge amounts of money being spent on the political campaigns. But even with all that, it seems many are not really getting the message. A big fuss was made about the Big Bird comment but many seem to miss the point — we cannot continue to keep spending money we do not have. I support and enjoy our PBS stations. But also realize that across the board cuts need to be made in order to reign in government spending. A big fuss was made about the 47 percent comment. That was a published figure of the percentage of people dependent on the government. A few weeks back I heard a speaker use that same figure. He also stated that when a government passes the 50 percent figure, it is no longer sustainable. And when recovery comes, it comes in the form of socialism. There was an indignant cry about that statement, but let's calm down and think about it. I begrudgingly have to admit that I am one of those people. In 1961, my senior year in high school, I started working for a dentist in a local community. I stayed on another four years. After all the deductions, the most I ever took home was $50 a week, a fair wage for the times. I was the typical stay-at-home mom during the ’60s and ’70s, contributing many volunteer hours to our son's schools, our community organizations and our church. We made due on one income, which means I was not contributing to Social Security or Medicare during those years. However, since reaching the age of 65, I have drawn on Social Security and taken advantage of Medicare benefits. Which means I have been drawing far more than I ever contributed. And now I see I will be receiving yet another cost of living increase. Even though we have saved and planned in order to not be a burden to our sons and there families, if we live long enough, we have to face the fact that we will both be dependent not only on General Motors, but also the government, for our regular income. Due to the extremely high costs of medical care, anyone who is past the age of 65 (and in some cases retiring younger) and has suffered a stroke, heart attack, cancer or any number of other catastrophic situations, more than likely has far exceeded the amount they contributed to Medicare. Which means someone else is now paying your way, just as you may have been paying the way for those who needed it in the past. We cannot continue to raise taxes to sustain our government spending. We cannot continue to spend using borrowed money. This generation already is in the position of working longer (if they can find a job), contributing more (through increased payroll deductions), and eventually receiving less (if any) in return. Do you want that for your grandchildren, too? A few solutions: not increasing taxes; closing loopholes on deductions so everyone pays what they actually owe; letting up on government regulations to encourage new and growing businesses; eliminating abuse and waste; cutting government spending across the board so all are sacrificing equally; reducing the size of our burgeoning government; less government control of our schools, our homes and our pockets. All things our current governing body refuses to do. The bottom line is we cannot sustain our current rate of spending and survive as the free America we all take for granted.
in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News.
my vote won’t count on Nov. 6 due to the overwhelmingly dominating Democractic Party in California, I plead with you to get out and vote in Ohio where your vote will count. It is imperative to the future of our great country to vote the Romney-Ryan ticket and your other Republican candidates, including Josh Mandel for Senate. I personally have watched the devastating effects of having Democrats run our government on the state, county and local levels. Our state is bankrupt, as are many of our cities. Governor Brown’s answer to the problem is placing Prop 30 on our Nov. 6 ballot, asking for a massive state tax increase. We are already being taxed beyond comprehension. Our large number of small businesses have either gone bankrupt or are holding on by their fingernails. Many companies have left the state because California is so “business unfriendly.” Our unemployment rate is 10.2 percent. I’m paying $5 a gallon for gas. A ticket for an expired parking meter in Los Angeles (my city) costs $63. Our city services have been cut way back — libraries are closed or only open for limited days and hours, our firefighters (in this high-fire danger area) have been cut way back. Our streets are littered with potholes. Our traffic is unbearable. Our traffic lights are not timed, causing massive gridlock. When I moved here in 1969, California public schools were ranked No. 1 in the nation; now they rank No. 47 — approximately 40 percent of their students don’t graduate from high school. Even our California State University and University of California systems, once the envy of the world, now are in dire straits.
We’re told by our Democratically elected officials that all we need to fix our problems is more money. Money is NOT the answer! What we desperately need are strong Republican leaders who can stand up to the teachers union and the public employees unions who are controlling our state and depleting the revenues so badly needed to fix our problems AND who can roll back the tremendous amount of crushing regulations to allow our businesses to thrive once again. Please, please do not allow Ohio and the rest of the country to “go the way of California.” Get out the vote for Romney-Ryan, Josh Mandel and your other Republican candidates.
Romney/Ryan best for country “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News. Watch for a new poll question
To the Editor: President Obama offered hope and change. He inspired millions with his eloquent speeches and promised a new vision for Washington. He talked about bipartisanship and working together — a new openness and transparency. But the last four years, while I have clipped coupons and tried to save money, President Obama has spent billions bailing out big Wall Street banks and the auto industry. No one is going to bail me out if can't pay my bills and I spend more than I make. We need to restore a sense of individual and fiscal responsibility. Our country is approaching $16 trillion in debt. We've had our tax dollars given to special interest businesses that have gone bankrupt, such as Solyndra. Meanwhile, our safety and security are threatened by cuts to military spending. Our freedom and liberty are being infringed. We've lost our right to choose our own healthcare and churches and religious organizations are being forced to go against basic tenants of their faith. I hope this isn't the change most voters envisioned when they voted for Barack Obama. I urge voters to help set this country on a new course — vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. — Karen Beagle Tipp City To the Editor: I am a proud Buckeye, born and raised in Ohio and a University of Dayton grad who has been living in California since 1969. Since
— Barbara Aselage Barnoski Los Angeles
Obama/Biden best for country To the Editor: Will lies, greed, hate and billionaires such as the Koch brothers, Donald Trump, Rush Limbaugh, Fox News and their ilk win the election on Nov. 6? The Republicans cannot wait to start another war. The next war we will have no friends to help and the entire country will feel the effects, not a handful going over and over. No Romney has ever served in the armed services. Mormons do serve. Some have, but not Mitt and his brood. Romney’s record in Massachusetts was not that great and he makes great profits from China. Romney is a chameleon. Slippery.

Be the change and be the one well after Nov. 6 One of the reasons I really enjoy this gig is that I get to meet so many different people and have in-depth conversations and listen to a variety of views. I get to ask a million questions because, well, it’s how I get paid. I am able to learn about so many different people, places and interests. And it is here in black and white that I am able to finally share how I feel about them. In four and a half years, I’ve covered city council meetings, board meetings and meetings about meetings. Some meetings I’ve only attended once or twice; others I make my monthly pilgrimage. And what I am about to share with you probably won’t shock you, but it should. More often than not, I am the only person in the room of a public meeting. This should concern you. Unless the agenda is controversial, I often sit alone. All we hear anymore is how disconnected politicians are with our needs and how the D.C. Beltway is out of touch. But, we have let it get that way — it’s our own fault. I’m not asking for a revolution or a
Melanie Yingst Troy Daily News Columnist march to the D.C. Mall, but we can start small. Just like the food movement, go local. Look no further than your local city council or board of education meetings, township meetings and meetings about meetings. Almost 75 percent of the time, our elected officials are talking to the wall or to the video camera. The great thing is, we all have a voice! It is right here on this very opinion page! You too can get a few things off your chest with a letter to the editor. Or if you prefer, make a phone call or write a letter to your city councilman or state representative, or show up at a meeting to see how this process works. If you have never attended a
— Margaret Lefler Troy
public meeting, here’s a simple guide. Call ahead or go early and ask how the public participation process works. Each meeting is different, so just ask the recorder or president how and when you can share your view. OK, let’s say you aren’t really that comfortable speaking publicly about your opinion. You don’t have to speak, but please attend. After the meeting, share your thoughts with a board member, trustee or council member by phone call or letter, or arrange a time to share your thoughts. Or, write a letter to the editor. If you don’t understand something, please ask. I’ve found many helpful officials throughout these years. Pick the one with the friendly smile and the one that takes notes about everything. Or do some research online if there’s a particular agenda item you find interesting, troubling or down right disturbing. During this election season, I am thankful for those “regulars” who faithfully attend these public meetings. All three of you know who you are — thank you. I also applaud high school government classes that require
their students to attend a public meeting. I think it should be a requirement for senior high school students to attend a board of education meeting and a city council meeting. These kids need to know there are people out there making decisions that directly affect them each and every month. Some are mandated by state and federal regulations, and others, such as pay to play and college coursework are approved by people just like their parents. They serve on these committees, boards and councils because they care. They were elected because others believed they would serve them and their beliefs in a just and fair manner. In closing, I’d just like to share a little anecdote. My son’s school is doing a citizenship/character program called “Be the One,” which focuses on speaking out and how to stand up for what is right even if you are the only one. Because well after Nov. 6 , no matter the outcome, we all can “Be the One.”

Edwin Q. White, former AP Saigon chief, dies
HONOLULU (AP) — One night in 1969, as a salvo of Viet Cong rockets exploded in the streets of Saigon, Edwin Q. White paused after typing a dateline on his typewriter to light his pipe and reflect on his belief that as an American journalist, he belonged in Vietnam. To his Associated Press colleagues, it was typical of the reporter-philosopher known as “unflappable Ed,” the calmest person in any crisis. White, who served as AP’s Saigon bureau chief as the U.S. deployed massive numbers of combat troops to Vietnam, died before dawn Thursday at his home at age 90, his daughter Rachel White Watanabe said. White said the biggest regret of his career was leaving Saigon when South Vietnam fell to Hanoi’s communist forces on April 30, 1975, a moment he thought about almost every day. He left on one of the last evacuation helicopters from the roof of the U.S. embassy. “Going off of the roof of the embassy wasn’t the greatest happening of my life,” he said. Known among colleagues by his middle name, Quigley, he was part of a fabled crew of journalists who covered the war for the AP from Saigon, a thinning group that has seen five deaths this year. “They were such a great bunch of people. I sometimes just stood around in awe of them,” White said in August, after the death of photographer Malcolm Browne. Other Saigon staffers who died this year were White’s close friend Roy Essoyan, a writer who became his neighbor in Hawaii, along with correspondent George Esper
and legendary photographer Horst Faas. Former AP Tokyo photo editor Hal Buell said White tightly bonded with colleagues in Asia and kept in touch long after they left the region to share a mutual affection for covering international news for AP. “We never lost that feeling,” said Buell, who worked with White in Tokyo before White went to Saigon. “It was a brotherhood, simply put.” Watanabe said White died in his sleep in Honolulu, where he moved after retiring in 1987. His had congestive heart failure and his health was deteriorating, she said. “Ed White led an extraordinary AP bureau that covered the American involvement in Vietnam from its start through the fall of Saigon in 1975,” said John Daniszewski, AP’s senior managing editor for international news. “He embodied accuracy, dispassion and objectivity in his reporting, and his contribution to the telling of that history will never be forgotten by his colleagues.” Born in Tipton, Mo., on Aug. 29, 1922, White was a reporter’s reporter skeptical, careful, a stickler for accuracy, with an acerbic wit and a no-frills writing style that stressed facts over drama. In a 1997 oral history interview for AP, White said his love of journalism began in boyhood, when he “got kind of interested” in how Tipton’s weekly paper was printed. He graduated from the University of Missouri’s prestigious journalism school and saw Army service in WWII. In the Philippines when the war ended in 1945, his unit was sent to Korea to help handle the repatriation of defeated Japanese troops.
Volunteering for postwar duty in Japan, White joined Pacific Stars and Stripes, a new Asian edition of the military newspaper. “I figured I’d never see Asia again, so I did that,” he said. Back in civilian life, White spent five years at newspapers in Kansas and Missouri. But he talked of returning abroad, and a boss told him to consider the AP. In 1949, White joined the news service in Kansas City, moved after five years to New York and in 1960 to Tokyo, as news editor in the flagship bureau of AP’s Asian operations. The growing conflict in Vietnam led international news agencies to expand their staffs, and White soon found himself commuting between Japan and Vietnam, spending weeks at a time in the war zone. As the U.S. shifted from an advisory to a full combat role in 1965, White was named chief of AP’s Saigon bureau. In 1979, White left Tokyo for Hawaii. A year later, however, he returned to Asia in Seoul, where AP’s all-Korean staff had come under severe government pressure. He retired in 1987 and returned to Hawaii with his wife, a native of Vietnam, and daughter. In four decades with AP, White saw his craft evolve from typewriters to computers, but he felt strongly that the digital revolution should not be the doom of traditional journalism. “If you learn the facts, report them accurately and get people to put it in the newspapers, or television or radio, that’s the mission,” he said in the oral history interview. “The means of doing it may have changed, but not the basic principle.”

Lincoln scholar Current dies at 100 NEW YORK (AP) — Richard Nelson Current, a prolific and award-winning Abraham Lincoln scholar who for decades was a leader in his field and helped shape a more realistic view of the iconic president, has died. He was 100. Current died Oct. 26 in Boston, fellow Lincoln historian Harold Holzer said Thursday. Current’s many books included “The Lincoln Nobody Knows” and “Lincoln the President,” winner of the Bancroft Prize in 1956. He had many other interests, writing about Daniel Webster, the inven-
tion of the typewriter and the state of Wisconsin. In his 80s, he and his wife, Marcia Ewing Current, cowrote a biography of dancer Loie Fuller. In his 90s, he translated essays and stories by the Norwegian author Knut
Hamsun, teaching himself the language of his ancestors. “He never lost his sense of curiosity. It was remarkable,” Marcia Ewing Current, married to the historian for 28 years, said Thursday.
as chief of staff for first lady Jacqueline Kennedy from 1961 to 1963. Baldrige, who was known as Tish, handled the first lady’s schedule, mail and served as the advance scout on trips. She was also responsible for the guest list and overall coordination of events. At one point, she was tasked with finding a French chef to oversee the White House kitchen. Baldrige acknowledged that she and her team of aides made mistakes. One letter responding to a celibate priest congratulated him on the birth of his son. On the Kennedys’ 1962 visit to India, Baldrige nearly sent as a gift leather-framed photos, not recognizing that cows are sacred in India. And then there was the first large party she organized, two days into the administration, where she provided ashtrays for the guests and served liquor. Both were unheard of, at least in the presence of reporters, and press called the party “debauched.” “The president wasn’t happy,” she recalled in a memoir, “A Lady, First.” But liquor continued to be served, and Kennedy later acknowledged he was wrong to give Baldrige a hard time.
Mary was a homemaker. She also had worked in the coffee shop at the old Woolworth Store here in Piqua for many years. Funeral services will be at 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5, 2012, at MelcherSowers Funeral Home, Piqua, with Pastor Donald Riley officiating. Burial will follow in Miami Memorial Park, Covington. Friends may call from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday at the funeral home.

It’s time to put your backbone in place
Today: 6 p.m.: Ultimate Sports 8 p.m.: Spotlight 11 p.m.: Tales of the Strange
Dear Annie: I live in Europe. I visit my parents twice a year with my kids, and my parents visit us annually. I recently asked that no relatives visit during my son's spring break so he can concentrate on his SATs and AP exams. My parents, however, insist they would not be a bother and against my wishes are planning to come during spring break and live at our house for two weeks. They always expect us to entertain them and take them out of town on the weekends. What can I say to make them change their minds? — 50 Years Old but Still Feeling 5 Dear Old Enough: Unless there is a good reason why your folks picked this time to visit, we strongly urge you to put your backbone in place. Tell your parents as sweetly as you can manage that if they insist on coming at precisely the time you asked them not to, you are so sorry, but you won't be able to put them up in your home because your son cannot have any distractions. You also won't be taking weekend trips for the same reason. Tell them how awful it is that you can't provide the type of company they were hoping for and that your son won't be able to enjoy their visit. Give them the name of a local bed-and-breakfast and suggestions for day trips and places of interest. Do it nicely but firmly, and don't back down. They will be upset, but they'll get the message. Dear Annie: Three years ago, I moved back to my hometown. My older brother, "Jerome," lives here. He is an outspoken and grumpy old man. His wife and I are friends and talk on the phone often. Here's the rub: I haven't been invited for a holiday or birthday celebration since I moved here. We exchange gifts, but they have cake or dinner after I leave. Yet my sister-in-law's family is always invited. I would often take baked treats over, but I stopped. Should I stop exchanging gifts, too? My sisterin-law knows this is hurtful, but she says only that Jerome doesn't like a lot of people around. Is he that uncaring? I rarely talk to him now, and I haven't been to his house in months. He has dropped over here a few times to bring produce or canned pickles. I wish I could just get over it. — Baffled Dear Baffled: We think the fact that Jerome drops by with produce and canned pickles indicates that he'd like a closer relationship, but doesn't know how to achieve it. Have you invited him to your home for a birthday or Christmas party? That street runs both ways. You also could tell him directly that you'd love to stay for cake and ice cream at the next birthday party and see how he reacts. It can't hurt. Dear Annie: In response to "Another Lonely Wife" (and many other unhappy wives), I share your pain from a husband's point of view. After countless romantic dinners, fun weekend getaways and vacations, tickets to her favorite events, a 25th wedding anniversary cruise and doing my fair share of household chores, the "return" on my efforts is nearly zero. It's not that I expect it for every gesture I make, but being constantly rejected sexually has taken its toll on my happiness. I would never reject any advances from my wife -- not that she has made many in 10 years. She says she loves me, but she should add, "But I don't want to have sex with you ever again." It's like I have a roommate, not a soul mate. It reminds me of the story of the couple who put a dollar in a jar every time they made love. After 10 years, they paid for a trip to Hawaii. In my case, I wouldn't be able to pay for the gas to get to the airport. — Sad Husband Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HINTS FROM HELOISE
Readers request recipe for spicy Swedish meatballs Dear Readers: Here is a recipe for spicy swedish meatballs that many readers request, since it’s a favorite as an appetizer at all gatherings! You will need: 2 cups breadcrumbs 1/2 cup milk 8 ounces ground beef 8 ounces sausage meat (spicy) 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce 1 teaspoon garlic salt 1 teaspoon soy sauce 1/2 teaspoon monosodium glutamate (optional) 5-ounce can sliced water chestnuts, chopped
Hints from Heloise Columnist Mix breadcrumbs and milk together in a large bowl, then add all other ingredients into the bowl and mix well. Place formed meatballs (they should be about 1 1/2 inches) onto an ungreased cookie sheet with sides. Bake for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until golden brown. Drain on paper
towels before serving. They go perfectly with my jelly or wine sauce. Want to know the recipes? Order my pamphlet Heloise’s Main Dishes and More. Send $3 and a long, selfaddressed, stamped (65 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Main Dishes, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Before cutting, you should allow most cooked meats (such as brisket or roast) a few minutes to “set.” It allows the juices to completely soak into the dish. — Heloise TRAVEL HINT Dear Heloise: I love traveling, and to save money on my trips, I try to use local trans-
portation, like subways, buses or trains, instead of taking a taxi. I usually have a list of places I would like to visit, so before I leave, I map routes to and from. I look up bus or train schedules on the Internet, since most have websites. All you need are the addresses of the starting and ending locations. You type in the information, and the mapping website will tell you what bus or train you need to take. It even includes stops and transfers. I find that it saves money and gives me a little different perspective of the place I am visiting. — A Reader in Illinois

ARLO & JANIS
HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A casual relationship could heat up into something committed. (Yeah, we’re talking the “M” word.) All relationships will be passionate today! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You’re determined to introduce reforms or improvements where you work today. Actually, you’re just as determined to improve your health. Bravo! GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is a sexy, romantic day. However, you are so obsessed about somebody else or about having fun or getting your own way that you might lose sight of what is really best for you. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Try not to be too pushy in family discussions today. Everyone thinks he or she knows best! What you can do is make marvelous improvements to bathrooms, plumbing areas or something to do with recycling and garbage. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You’re extremely persuasive today. In fact, you might be so obsessed with an idea that you just won’t lighten up. Remember: The best way to get others to listen is to whisper. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You might be obsessed about buying something today. “I have to have it!” Don’t be too pushy at work. If you do shop, keep your receipts. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You’re filled with desire regarding personal and intimate relationships, but it also might apply to anything you want to do today. Be careful you don’t lose your perspective. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Secret love affairs will take place today for many. Don’t lose sight of who you are. Be careful about being attracted to something that is not good for you. (Why do this? Instead, want the best for yourself!) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Relations with others, especially in group situations, will be intense today. No doubt you will attract powerful people to you. (“Hi, Darth.”) CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Romance with someone older, richer or in a position of authority might suddenly enslave you today. This is all you can think about! Well, this too, shall pass. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A new relationship with someone from a different background could begin for you today. However, because your appreciation of beauty is heightened, you’ll be delighted to see art galleries, museums and pristine parks. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Disputes about shared property might arise today. People will not back down. (Privately, your sexual passion is intense.) Woo, woo! YOU BORN TODAY You are intensely focused on whatever is important to you. You never waffle or waver. You are gutsy and competitive, but you always act cool. You understand that victory is all about timing. (Because, you do intend to win.) You have excellent powers of concentration. In the year ahead, a fresh nine-year cycle begins for you. Open any door!

Syrian rebels kill 78 BEIRUT (AP) Syrian rebels killed 78 soldiers on Thursday, about half of them in attacks on military checkpoints in the north just hours after a wave of bombings hit the Damascus area, activists said. The unusually high toll for regime forces came after days of intense air bombardment of rebel positions around the country that killed hundreds more. Anti-regime activists say President Bashar Assad’s regime has been making even heavier use than before of airstrikes to try to win back territory rebels have captured, including the strategic northern city of Maaret alNuman on a key supply route from the capital Damascus to the commercial hub of Aleppo. Rebels have been using the city as a base to disrupt government supplies to Aleppo, a key front in the civil war. After many rounds of failed diplomatic efforts to ease the Syrian crisis, the U.S. is making a push to unite the opposition, which is dominated by exiles widely seen as ineffective and out of touch with rebel fighters on the ground. Ahead of a crucial opposition conference in Qatar next week, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called Wednesday for a major leadership overhaul. She suggested Washington would handpick more representative leaders, including those fighting the regime. The Obama administration and the main opposition group in exile, the Syrian National Council, have become increasingly

The SNC says the Obama administration, unwilling to intervene militarily or arm the rebels, has failed to chart a path forward. Clinton’s harsh public criticism of the SNC came after months of fruitless attempt to cajole the group to broaden its base, said two U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the plan. At the same time, Assad ally China is proposing a phased-in cease-fire and negotiations on a gradual political transition to end the bloodshed. China stopped short of calling for Assad’s ouster and did not say how it would enforce compliance. Alongside Russia, China has steadfastly blocked any outside intervention that could force Assad from power. A total of 182 people were killed on Thursday, according to the Britainbased Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Of those, 104 were civilians and rebel fighters and 78 were soldiers. The rebels killed 37 sol-
diers in attacks on three military checkpoints near the town of Saraqeb, said the Observatory. The Syrian regime rarely comments on the deaths of soldiers, and there was no official confirmation of the particularly high toll among troops for the day. The rebels fighting to topple Assad have complained they are outgunned by the military. Daily death tolls of 150 or more have now become commonplace. Activists say the relentless fighting has killed more than 36,000 people since the uprising against Assad’s regime began 19 months ago. On Wednesday, much of the violence focused on the rebellious suburbs of the capital Damascus and in Aleppo. Three bombs in AlMazzeh district late Wednesday night targeted a mosque, a sports club and a shop, state-run news agency SANA said. One person was killed in the explosion near the district’s Al-Houda mosque, and two were wounded, the agency
reported Thursday. Six people, including a child, were injured in the two other explosions, according to the report. The government blamed rebels. SANA said the death toll from another bombing Wednesday evening in a Damascus suburb rose to 12 after one more victim died of wounds. The bomb hit a Shiite Muslim shrine. The civil war has deepened sectarian divisions in Syria. Many of those trying to depose Assad are Sunni Muslims, while the regime is dominated by Alawites, followers of an offshoot of Shiite Islam. Many Syrians, particularly those in Damascus where fighting and demonstrations have been relatively light, fear that Islamic extremists that have fought alongside rebel units may be targeting the capital more frequently to help drive Assad out of power. Witnesses to Wednesday’s blast said the assailants picked random spots to detonate explosives and stoke panic among residents.
WASHINGTON (AP) — A flurry of data issued Thursday sketched a brightening view of the U.S. economy in the final days before a presidential election that will pivot on the strength of the recovery. Cheaper gas, rising home prices and lower unemployment have given consumers the confidence to spend more. And retailers, auto dealers and manufacturers are benefiting. At the same time, many employers remain anxious about the economy, which is why only modest hiring gains are forecast for today’s jobs report for October. It will be the last major report on the economy before Election Day. Both presidential candidates pressed their arguments Thursday for why President Barack Obama’s economic stewardship should or should not earn him another four-year term. Campaigning in Roanoke, Va., Mitt Romney argued that under Obama, household incomes have fallen behind inflation and poverty has worsened. Obama, in a speech in Green Bay, Wis., contended that Romney’s proposals are the same “top-down policies that crashed our economy.” Here’s what the reports issued Thursday showed about the state of the U.S. economy: CONSUMERS: Americans have taken heart from recent declines in the unemployment rate. They appear increasingly confident that the economy can sustain its modest recovery. That’s translating into more consumer spending the fuel of U.S. economic growth even though businesses have pulled back and exports have slowed. Consumer confidence jumped last month. The Conference Board index of confidence reached 72.2, its highest since February 2008,
two months into the Great Recession. JOBS: Job growth will likely remain modest. Most companies are reluctant to make major investments in hiring or equipment, economists say. Economists have forecast that employers added 121,000 jobs last month too slow a hiring pace to drive down the unemployment rate quickly. The rate has declined in recent months in part because some people have given up looking for work. AUTO SALES: Americans are buying more big-ticket items, like cars and appliances. Auto companies reported steady sales gains last month despite losing three days of business to the storm in heavily populated areas of the Northeast. Toyota said its sales rose nearly 16 percent for the month. Volkswagen reported a 22 percent jump. Honda’s sales gained 8.8 percent. Chrysler’s sales rose 10 percent, General Motors ’ 5 percent and Ford’s less than 1 percent. MANUFACTURING: Steady consumer spending is supporting gains in U.S. factory production. That’s true even though businesses in the United States and overseas have reduced their demand for high-cost manufactured goods. 2336144

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 branches are Union 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.

Vikings to play top-ranked Cavaliers BY COLIN FOSTER Sports Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Following two consecutive losses to Covington and TriCounty North, Miami East’s record fell to 4-3 — and the Vikings found their Cross County Conference title hopes erased. East was down, but not mathematically out of the playoff picture. “We just kind of reset our goal to finish out the year at 7-3,” Miami East coach Max Current
CASSTOWN said. “There have only been two other teams in school history that have had that record. So we wanted to be the next one to do it. It isn’t like we got beat by some slouches. We lost to Covington, Milton and North. All three are playoff teams.” From that point on, East went 3-0 — beating Bradford convincingly in Week 8, then taking down Twin Valley South and STAFF PHOTO/ANTHONY WEBER National Trail to close out the Miami East’s Dan Bodenmiller (79) blocks for running back

Not most teams ME cruises past CHCA in regional semis BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor email@example.com For most teams, merely reaching the regional level is a triumph, and anything else is just icing on the cake. Miami East is not most teams. Just ask Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy. For the Vikings — the defending state champions in Division III — repeating is the only goal, an eight-step process that they reached KETTERING the halfway point of Thursday night with another impressive sweep, this time 25-14, 25-16, 25-12 over the Eagles in the regional semifinal round at Fairmont’s Trent Arena. Four down, four to go. “We’re not here to just ‘give it our best.’ We want to win every game,” Miami East coach John Cash said. “The girls are hungry, and they expect to win every game. Once we get to this point in the season, we count down from eight for a reason. It takes eight wins to win the state title.” Next up is a regional title game

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The “conspiracy of silence” that protected Jerry Sandusky extended all the way to the top at Penn State, prosecutors said Thursday as they charged former university President Graham Spanier with hushing up child sexual abuse allegations against the former assistant football coach. Prosecutors also added counts against two of Spanier’s former underlings, Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, who were already charged with lying to a grand jury. “This was not a mistake by these men. This was not an oversight. It was not misjudgment on their part,” said state Attorney General Linda Kelly. “This was a conspiracy of silence by top officials to actively conceal the truth.” Spanier’s lawyers issued a statement that asserted his innocence and described the new charges as an attempt by Gov. Tom Corbett to divert attention from the three-year investigation that began under his watch as attorney general. “These charges are the work of a vindictive and politically motivated governor working through an unelected attorney general … whom he appointed to do his bidding,” the four defense lawyers wrote. Corbett spokesman Kevin Harley said the defense statement “sounds like the ranting of a desperate man who just got indicted.” Curley’s lawyer Caroline Roberto said he was innocent of all charges, as he has asserted in the past. She said the new documents were being reviewed and would have a more comprehensive comment later. Schultz also has maintained his innocence; his lawyer did not return a message seeking comment. At a Capitol news conference, Kelly said all three men “knowingly testified falsely and failed to provide important information and evidence.” Spanier was charged with

Eagles soaring TC ready for regional final BY JAMES FREEMAN Sports Intern
Browns hoping to climb in AFC North They’ve been on the bottom for so long it seems as if the Browns are stuck there. With an abysmal 15-48 record inside the AFC North since it was formed in 2002, Cleveland has been the rugged division’s longtime punching bag and cellar dwellers. They’ve been down and stayed down. See Page 16.
After making the Division III District finals last season under first-year coach Brian Peters, Troy Christian (19-1) is a year older and will be making their first trip to the Region 12 final Saturday afternoon at Hamilton High School against Summit Country Day (18-1-2). With only three seniors, it was easy to assume that inexperience would be their downfall. But their trip to the district finals last season was valuable
TROY and has helped the girls play beyond their years. “Last year we didn’t have any seniors,” Peters said. “It was a huge growing year for us. Being a first-year coach, I was really out-coached. We didn’t know what to expect.” The Eagles are now flying high. A win over Hamilton Badin in the district final gave the school their first trip to the regional semifinals against

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Saturday against Anna — the team the Vikings lost to in the sectional title game two years ago, then defeated in last year’s regional semifinal at Trent Arena en route to the title. Anna knocked off Fenwick — the team Miami East beat in last year’s regional final — in four games. CHCA put up a fight despite the deceptively onesided scores, though, particularly through the efforts of its defense, keyed by libero Emily Beckes. In fact, the Eagles were one of the best defensive teams the Vikings have faced all year. “I would agree with that, outside of Bishop Hartley,” Cash said, referring to the only team to defeat Miami East this season. “(CHCA) is right there, though. We knew they would get to a lot of balls, and they got a lot of balls up. They got here for a reason.” And just like all season long, every Viking was key in the victory. Leah Dunivan gave the Vikings an early lead in Game 1, piling up a block, a kill and a pair of aces to stake Miami East out to a 6-3 lead. A kill and an ace back-to-back by Dunivan made it 15-10, and Abby Cash piled up four kills during a five-point service run by Angie Mack to give the Vikings an insurmountable 21-12 lead, which they closed out easily. “Leah’s been really coming on of late, just like she did at this point last year,” Cash said. “It’s good to have a senior step up like she did. She scored in our offense, and she really affected their offense with her net play. She altered a lot of their shots just with her presence.” The Eagles hung tough, though, and kept the second game close – and even tied – as late as 11-11. And Beckes made a phenomenal save on a kill attempt by Abby Cash, only to have Sam Cash put one away later in the rally. Sam Cash had two kills, Dunivan had a kill and Abby Cash had two aces in an eight-point run, and the 19-11 lead was more than enough to take a two-game lead. The Vikings trailed for the first time in the third game at 5-3, but a kill by Mack started a three-point streak, CHCA tied it at 6-6, then Mack scored kills on three of the next four points – with Abby Cash putting down the other point — and the Vikings led 10-6 and never led by less than
■ CONTINUED FROM 15 season. The Vikings — who ranked 11th in the Division V Region 20 playoff standings before their Week 10 win over Trail — moved up No. 8 in Region 20 to set up a firstround playoff matchup against Midwest Athletic Conference powerhouse Coldwater on Saturday at 7 p.m. During that final threegame stretch, the Vikings averaged 36.6 points per game on offense, while their defense surrendered just 14.3 a game. Miami East had possibly the most brutal schedule in the conference of any team to finish the season. In three straight weeks, East played eventual CCC champ Covington, North and Bradford. Beating the Railroaders, though, proved to be the turning point of the season. Bradford entered the game with only one loss, but East didn’t back down. The Vikings contained recordbreaking running back James Canan and Bradford’s high-powered offense in a 3314 victory, allowing them to get right back in playoff contention. To follow, East defeated Twin Valley South 27-14, then hammered National Trail (6-4) 50-15 to finish the regular season at 7-3. “I just told the guys we are a good football team. Lets go out and finish the year like good football teams do. They really responded well the last three weeks. We went out and played a whale of a game to beat Bradford. They responded well. They showed they can fight through adversity.” Of course, the Vikings needed other pieces to fall into place in order to secure that eighth and final spot in Region 20. “If you look in our region, five teams finished 10-0, one 8-2, then a handful of 7-3 teams, and we were one of them,” Current said. “The two

It’s what sets us apart from everyone else.” And the numbers back that up. Abby Cash was consistent all night with nine kills, two aces, a block, four digs and 16 assists, Mack tallied eight kills, five digs and an assist, Sam Cash added seven kills, a dig and 18 assists and Dunivan had seven kills, three aces, a block and four digs. Trina Current added four kills and a dig, Ashley Current had a kill and a block – which came on match point – and the defensive tandem of Allie Millhouse and Allison Morrett outdid even the Eagles’ talented back row, with Millhouse scoring 11 digs and Morrett eight. But the Vikings are far from done, already looking ahead to Saturday’s matchup. “We took care of step No. 4 today, three is Saturday,” Cash said. “Even though I

Browns hoping to climb in AFC North BEREA (AP) — They’ve been on the bottom for so long it seems as if the Browns are stuck there. With an abysmal 15-48 record inside the AFC North since it was formed in 2002, Cleveland has been the rugged division’s longtime punching bag and
cellar dwellers. They’ve been down and stayed down. That could soon change. One of the NFL’s youngest teams, the Browns believe they are closing the gap on Baltimore, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh — all playoff
teams in 2011. “Everybody in the division is beatable,” cornerback Joe Haden said. “I just feel our team is starting to become one of the good teams. We’re on the verge of being at the top.” It’s going to be a long, slow climb, but the Browns

teams we beat out (for the final spot) Marion Pleasant and West Jefferson had beat one team with a winning record. Marion Pleasant didn’t beat anybody with a winning record. “So us beating Bradford and Trail, we beat two teams with a winning record. That pretty much made the difference.” But what East is about to face will hands down be its hardest test of the year in the No. 1 ranked team in Division V Coldwater. Of all MAC teams, like Delphos St. John’s, Marion Local, Minster and Versailles, Coldwater boasts the most impressive resume. The Cavaliers — who have reached the state finals three years in a row — have won 16 conference titles in 39 seasons, while compiling a 20461 record during that period. Coldwater was ranked No. 1 in the state in the final poll of the season. “If I knew the MAC’s secret formula, I’d bottle it and sell it,” Current said. “There’s been a lot of tradition throughout the years.” Coldwater has had just one close game during the season, which came in a 7-0 win over Anna in Week 7. After Kenton scored 22 points against Coldwater in Week 1, the Cavalier defense didn’t allow an opponent to score over seven points for the rest of the season. Coldwater’s QB has thrown for 1,900 yards, leading an offense that has put up a lot of points during an undefeated campaign. “There’s no doubt (we have to play our best game of the season),” Current said. “We’re going to have to take care of the football, we’re gonna have to block better than we have and we’re going to have to tackle better. We will have to play with a high level of intensity on every down instead of a couple plays.”

(2-6) are showing signs that they’re finally headed in the right direction. They’ve won two straight home games, and following a victory over San Diego, the Browns are feeling pretty good about themselves heading into Sunday’s rematch with Baltimore.
■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Cincinnati Madeira — where they won a doubleovertime thriller, 3-2. “You look at our talent level and you look at the talent of our opponents,” Peters said. “Why should we have beat them?” A lot of their success can be attributed to their team unity. The team meets every Friday for a bible study session to bond and support each other. But you can’t dimiss the support they have had from the school and their fans. “Women’s sports takes a back seat to everything — it’s just the society we live in,” Peters said. “We had 30 or 40 students come down to Hamilton and rush the field after our win. Everytime we walk in, the athletic director — Mike Coots — has gone above and beyond.” This is a big game for the school, but they aren’t the only ones pulling for Troy Christian to continue its improbable run. “I’ve gotten some calls from a couple northern
coaches that have been encouraging,” Peters said. “They are uplifting. Obviously they are upset that they aren’t still playing, but they are happy that it is us.” Troy Christian will have their hands full on Saturday against the Silver Knights. Their lone loss came at the hands of Middletown Bishop Fenwick — who is playing Saturday in the Region 11 final. Summit Country Day played Madeira — the team Troy Christian beat to make the final — on October 8th and tied them 1-1. “It’s going to be like Blackburn vs. Manchester United and we are Blackburn. From the little we have watched of them, they are a very talented team,” Peters said. “It is going to be a lot like playing Badin and Madeira again.” If the result is similar to that of the Badin and Madeira games, Troy Christian will be only be two wins away from their first state championship.
10 boys over 15 years. He has maintained he is innocent and was transferred to a maximum security prison on Wednesday, where he is serving a 30- to 60-year sentence. Curley, 58, the athletic director on leave while he serves out the last year of his contract, and Schultz, 63, who has retired as vice president for business and finance, were charged a year ago with lying to the grand jury and with failing to properly report suspect child abuse. Their trial is set for early January in Harrisburg. Spanier, 64, of State College, had been university president for 16 years when he was forced out after Sandusky’s November 2011 arrest. He remains a faculty member but was placed on paid leave Thursday.
Prosecutors said Spanier, Curley and Schultz knew of complaints involving Sandusky showering with boys in 1998 and 2001. “They essentially turned a blind eye to the serial predatory acts committed by Jerry Sandusky,” Kelly said. The grand jury report included with the charges said “the actual harm realized by this wanton failure is staggering,” and listed instances of abuse detailed at Sandusky’s criminal trial that happened after 1998. “The continued cover-up of this incident and the ongoing failure to report placed every minor child who would come into contact with Sandusky in the future in grave jeopardy of being abused,” jurors wrote.
Sandusky ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children, failure to properly report suspected abuse and conspiracy. Curley and Schultz face new charges of endangering the welfare of children, obstruction and conspiracy. The charges were filed with a suburban Harrisburg district judge, whose office said Curley and Schultz were expected to be arraigned Friday afternoon and Spanier tentatively scheduled to appear Wednesday. They came nearly a year to the day that Sandusky was arrested. Sandusky, who spent decades on the Penn State staff and was defensive coordinator during two national championship seasons, was convicted in June of sexually abusing

In his career, the senior QB has 34 TDs and 21 interceptions. Advantage: Ohio State OFFENSIVE LINE OSU (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) has started the same five offensive linemen all season and those five have avoided injury. The Buckeyes rank second in the Big Ten in scoring, second in rushing yardage and third in third down conversions. Illinois has allowed 30 quarterback sacks, 12 more than anyone else in the Big Ten, ranks 11th in the Big Ten in rushing and is last in scoring. Scheelhaase was sacked seven times in the Indiana game. Advantage: Ohio State
DEFENSIVE LINE Ohio State turned up the pressure against Penn State with four sacks and plans to continue that the rest of the season. Michael Bennett might have had his best game of the season last week. He also might have been the healthiest he has been all season. Tackle Akeem Spence, projected as a first or secondround NFL prospect and end and Michael Buchanan (5 tackles for losses, 2.5 sacks, 1 interception) lead Illinois’ front line. Advantage: Ohio State
LINEBACKERS Ryan Shazier plays with a defensive back’s speed and hits like a linebacker — a very good one. Zach Boren’s transition to linebacker from fullback continues to go well. He has had 8, 5 and 7 tackles in his three games as a starter on defense. Etienne Sabino is expected to be out again this week, but could return Nov. 17 at Wisconsin after a bye week. For Illinois, Jonathan Brown has a team-high 8.5 tackles for losses and 2.5 quarterback sacks. Advantage: Ohio State

But the Buckeyes have twice as many interceptions as Illinois, 12 to 6. Illinois cornerback Terry Hawthorne has six pass breakups. Safety Steve Hull, a converted running back, has started 25 games at that position. Illinois has given up at least 31 points in its six losses. Advantage: Ohio State
JAKE STONEBURNER The senior wide receiver has drawn praise from coach Urban Meyer after a recent meeting in which he told Stoneburner he needed to play better. He has 14 catches this season, including a 72-yard touchdown catch in a 35-23 win over Penn State last week.
RUNNING BACKS Carlos Hyde (600 yards, 10 touchdowns) was held to 45 yards on 22 carries by Penn State, but ran hard and gained 91 percent of his yards after contact. Rod Smith’s four carries for 48 yards was his highest yardage total of the season. For Illinois, Donovonn Young (400 yards, 2 TDs) is the leading rusher. Young gained 124 yards on 21 carries in a 31-21 loss to Indiana last week, the fifth consecutive loss for the Illini. Advantage: Ohio State

SPECIAL TEAMS One of the most glaring weaknesses for Ohio State is having three punts blocked and seeing two of those result in touchdowns. Meyer said earlier this week all three of those blocks were because of missed assignments. Ohio State kicker Drew Basil is 3 of 5 with a long kick of 35 yards. Punter Ben Buchanan averages 42.1 yards per kick. Illinois kicker Taylor Zalewski is 3 of 6 on field goals, but has hit a 47-yarder this season. Punter Justin DuVernois averages 42.4 yards per kick.

OSU gets early start on the future COLUMBUS – Five times. That’s how many times Ohio State has had a perfect football season. So, to see Ohio State three wins away from its sixth unbeaten season after all that has happened in the last two years is borderline amazing. OSU is banned from a bowl trip and the BCS rankings. The roster is filled with guys who were part of a 6-7 team a year ago. But so far Urban Meyer’s first season as Ohio State’s coach has been everything anyone could have expected and more. The Buckeyes have done more than surprise a few people, though. What they are doing is building the foundation for even greater success in the future. Winning doesn’t erase the past. But it builds enthusiasm. Negative momentum has become extremely positive momentum at Ohio State. Just being Urban Meyer gets recruits to take your phone call. Being Urban Meyer with an unbeaten team to talk about ramps up the enthusiasm level in the 17-year-old on the other end of the call. “I’m really anxious to make those (recruiting) calls tonight and say, ‘Hey, this is Urban Meyer from Ohio State and we’re 9-0,’” Meyer said earlier this week. But it’s not just recruits who are energized by winning. It affects the returning underclassmen. “It’s much easier for players and staff and coaches to believe something when they can actually see those results,” defensive line coach Mike Vrabel says. Sophomore receiver Evan Spencer sees that belief. “Now we’re 9-0, so next year going into the season we’ll be like, ‘All right, last year we knew what we had to do to get to this point, so let’s do it again or do it better this time,’ ” he said. No. 6 Ohio State (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) should go to 10-0 on Saturday against Illinois. After that, it gets a little more difficult with a trip to Wisconsin and a home game against Michigan to end the season. But if this is the foundation, Ohio State fans have to be really excited about what the building will look like when it’s finished.
