for the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) at a total cost not to exceed $205,000. Consideration of emergency legislation requested. 2) Provide a recommendation to Council regarding an professional services agreement with the consulting engineering firm of EHM&T to design a water line project at a cost not to exceed $65,240. Consideration of emergency legislation requested. A regular meeting of city council will follow at 7 p.m. Monday at city hall. The agenda for the meeting includes the first reading of the resolution to enter in to a public defender agreement for $20,341.13.The salary for the city to provide a public defender has remained the same since 2009.

A emergency resolution in regards to an intergovernmental agreement between Troy, Dayton, Middletown for lime is also on the agenda. The utilities committee met on Oct. 28 and will recommend to the rest of the council to enter in to an agreement to purchase reclaimed pebble lime from the city of Dayton. According to the committee report, Troy has been involved in a pilot program with the City of Dayton that involves Dayton removing lime sludge residual from the lagoons at the Water Treatment Plant, putting the sludge through a kiln process operated by Dayton, and then selling the re-kilned lime product (calcium oxide product) back to the city. The financial result is that the cost

to Troy is less than the combined cost of paying a contractor to clean the lime sludge lagoon and purchasing lime needed for the water softening process from vendors. The committee recommends the agreement with the cost associated with such agreement not to exceed $300,000 the first year, with such amount adjusted in subsequent years based on the terms of the agreement. The estimated savings to the city of Troy is approximately $80,000, according to the report. One ordinance in regards to the vacation of the Southview area alley will be discussed on Monday. A public hearing for the Southview area alley will be held on Nov. 18.

Local man releases book, signing set for Nov. 9 Colin Foster Staff Writer

They’re the stories from Vietnam that Robert Brundrett had been telling his three kids for years. And now he’s sharing them with the rest of the world with the release of his book — “Vietnam on My Mind”— which features 10 short stories about the people Brundrett encountered during his time in Vietnam. The book was released in July of this year and he is holding a book signing Nov. 9 at Jay and Mary’s Book Store in Troy. And in Brundrett’s opinion, the content in his book differs very much from most Vietnamrelated material on the market. While most stories about Vietnam center around the brutal nature and turmoil that surrounded the war, his book focuses on the day-to-day life of the Vietnamese people, American’s and others who Brundrett associated with and remembered from the time period. “Most of the books about Vietnam fall into three categories: a history book or any kind of historical book, or else they’re something about really horrific, explicit battles and trauma, or they’re either for the war or against it,” he explained. “It was a Anthony Weber | Troy Daily News very controversial war.

Daylight Savings fall back

MIAMI COUNTY — Miami County will grow dark earlier as daylight savings time ended last night as clocks once again “fell back” an hour at 2 a.m. Sunday. The end of Daylight Savings Time also serves as a reminder from local officials to check the batteries on emergency devices such as smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. According to organization experts from the website Innovativelyorganized. com, Daylight Savings time is a great day to make safety checks around the home before winter. The website offers an entire checklist of home safety items to do in coordination with Daylight Savings Time. The first day of Daylight Savings Time is an excellent time to check and replace furnace filters, pressure of the homes’ fire extinguisher, water filter and safety-proof areas of the home. It also is a timely reminder to check and replace other emergency items in first aid kit and restock emergency food, water and batteries in the home’s flashlights. Even though we all gained an extra hour of sleep today, Daylight Savings Time will return to “spring forward” at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 9, 2014. — Compiled by Melanie Yingst

A dream come true Choose your trustee Local boy gets to meet Mickey Mouse

Colin Foster Staff Writer

His dream was to meet the legendary Mickey Mouse. And thanks to the help of A Special Wish Foundation and the generosity of Value Added Packaging, Inc. — 2-year-old Troy resident Brian Norvell Jr. was able to do that. Norvell Jr., who was diagnosed with Velocardiofacial syndrome, also known as VCFS or DiGeorge syndrome, and his family attended the Disney On Ice show at the Nutter Center on Oct. 25.

The family was taken special care of on that night — taking part in a meet-andgreet with Mickey Mouse before the show — and getting limo service to and from the show, along with dinner at Golden Corral. “He loves Mickey — he’s watching Mickey right now as a matter of fact. He didn’t enjoy the meet-andgreet, though,” said mother Holly Dankworth with a laugh during a phone interview Thursday. “He was scared, but he’s young. He fell asleep for the first half of the show, but he stayed

ELIZABETH TWP. – During the Nov. 5 election, voters in Elizabeth Township will choose to elect three trustees from a list of six candidates. Ronald Swallow and James (Jim) Miller are running to fill the unexpired term left when David Wagner resigned. J.

Most children who have been diagnosed with the sydrome are missing a part of chromosome 22. It affects Norvell Jr. in a variety of ways. He has issues with his heart, immune system, kidneys, lower-than-normal calcium levels, and his jaw is pushed back, which compresses his airway.

From page A1 “Right now, everything could be fine … tomorrow, everything could not be fine,” Holly explained. Value Added Packaging Inc. presented Brian’s family with the check to cover all the expenses for his special wish at their open house charity event in August. The VAP team also presented Brian with a VAP care package full of Mickey Mouse toys and activities. “We added 45,000 square feet to our facility, and did a new addition in the summer at our place over in Englewood,” said Mari Wenrick, chief champion of culture at VAP Inc., who co-owns the company with husband Jarod. “We really wanted to put on a celebration for that and everything. We did an open house charitable event in August, and we wanted to involve three local charities to be apart of it. One of them that was true to our heart and special to us was A Special Wish.” The team of 33 people at VAP made close to 400 care packages — which contained crayons, stickers, coloring books, sunscreen, back-to-school supplies and various other items — then divided them up between A Special Wish Foundation, St. Vincent de Paul and Choices. Thousands of dollars and countless hours were spent by the VAP team making this happen. “It was great for the 300 plus people at the event to learn more about these charities — and it was a great thing to involve them in the open house and help share their message,” Wenrick said. A Special Wish Foundation took care of setting up and arranging all the details of the wish for the family. “It meant a lot,” Holly said. “For them to be able to give us the opportunity to take him some place like that, it broke my heart.” • About A Special Wish Foundation

From page A1 During that time in the ’60s, it was a time of huge turmoil. You had Vietnam, all those assassinations; the president, Martin Luther King Jr., Bobby Kennedy and the whole civil rights thing was going on at the same time — so it was a very controversial time. “(My book) is about the everyday life mostly centered around the Vietnamese people and American’s that were there, the servicemen and the others in the country. They’re about the everyday life and what it was like for them. They’re human interest stories about what their lives were like living, working and having families during that time.” Brundrett — a graduate of Tippecanoe High School — served as a U.S. Navy adviser in Vietnam during the final year of the war. He was with the U.S. Navy’s Civil Engineer Corps, also known as the Seabees, and worked with Vietnamese Navy officers at bases along the rivers, sea coasts and also with the Vietnamese Navy Construction Bureau in Saigon. “I was not ready for an 8-5 p.m. job at a big General Motors division,” Brundrett said. “I felt unengaged with the realities of the time. Since I already had a degree (from Ohio State in engineering), I joined the Navy and enrolled in OCS at Newport, although I never expected to be sent to Vietnam two years later. “I wasn’t excited about going to Vietnam — but have always been glad that I did. Vietnam turned out to be the defining event of the Baby Boomer generation.” Brundrett and 11 other Navy officers were spread along rivers

A Special Wish Foundation takes care of setting up all the details of the special wish for the family. The foundation — which was founded in 1983 — is the only wish granting organization in the Dayton area. All funds raised stay in the community granting wishes for local children with life-threatening illnesses. A Special Wish is a registered 501 (c) 3, not-for-profit organization and is an accredited charity with Better Businees Bureau. A Special Wish Foundation executive director David Seyer said they have granted close to 1,600 wishes in their 30 years of service. Recently, the foundation sent a child to meet the cast of the television show “Duck Dynasty” and also had a girl in Pittsburgh meeting country singer Luke Bryan.

and the coasts of South Vietnam supporting their counterparts in base defense, construction projects and Vietnamese Navy housing projects at remote bases. “One of the ideas they presented us with was building houses for the families (of servicemen) right around the rivers, so that the family could be there and the servicemen could be there, so they could be happier and we could try to make life a little more easier for them,” Brundrett said. “So, one of the things I did over there with my counterparts was build these houses. We built a lot of these houses up and down the rivers and coasts — and I think there was about 2,000 houses in this program. “They were made out of cement and tile and things like that, with a metal roof. They really looked almost like horse stables — but they were so appreciative of them.” Though Brundrett has been telling the stories for years, he started putting them in print following his retirement from Goodrich in 2007. Brundrett and wife, Linda, have three kids — Gina, Megan and Robbie, all of whom went to St. Patrick Elementary and graduated from Miami East High School. “Vietnam on My Mind” is available for purchase at Jay and Mary’s Bookstore in Troy and Browse Awhile Books in Tipp City and on www.woosterbook. com.

Please go to my website to view more in depth information about my bio; wife and family; military experience; work experience; the issues; and contact information. Are there any future plans or projects you hope to achieve if elected? “If you haven’t already done so I hope you’ll visit my web site I’ve bared my sole on the web site as it contains just about everything about me and what I’ve experienced up to this point in my life. As many people know our township was blessed by the estate taxes of L. M. Berry the inventor of the Yellow Pages. We will no longer receive estate or death taxes as they were abolished by the state of Ohio effective January 1, 2013. Checks and interest from the Berry funds amounted to almost 39 million on January 2, 2003. This fund is now under $33.7 million as of September 19, this year. In the early years after the L. M. Berry funds were received

the economy was good and interest rates on our money were high compared to the 1.59 percent we received on these funds in 2012. The 2013 Appropriation Budget calls for an expenditure of over $4.9 million against a total income of just over $892 thousand according to the numbers provided by Mary Ann Mumford the Elizabeth Township Fiscal Officer. This would be a deficit of over $4 million. I have been told at least $2 million of this amount will be carried over to next year. OK, but still any amount over total income will result in deficit spending. In my opinion, we simply cannot afford to continue to reduce the principal in our general fund as we rely too heavily on the interest income to help us meet our yearly costs to run the township. As mentioned on my website the lack of knowledge and factual information, or the truth, is so very often the cause of rumors, mistrust, gossip, and lies. Transparency in the township’s business is a must. The minutes of the trustee’s meetings need to be on the township’s web site so the interested people know where their money is spent and what ideas are being tabled for further research. The needs of all groups must be heard and seriously considered. And while video recording of the trustee’s meetings is not required by law, I have been told by former legal counsel that we would be “well advised” to do so. Next, contrary to the manner in which the Elizabeth Township Community Center has been run in the past, I will work to establish an employee handbook and put in place the structure and procedures needed to run this wonderful facility in a more business-like manner. At this point in time the ETCC Executive Director doesn’t even have the ability to speak to the center’s needs during the township’s budgeting process. This is wrong. It has also been rumored that if elected, certain other candidates will cut the ETCC’s employee’s pay as a ‘cost saving matter.’ We are blessed to have fantastic, talented, dedicated employees that work for the center and to witness these people being mistreated is a travesty we should not and cannot allow to happen.

Finally, I will do everything I can to work with the Elizabeth Township Historical Society to ensure our township doesn’t lose our historical designation (Elizabeth Township was placed on the historical register in 1997) and to continue our vigilance to keep I-675 from coming through our township. Widening roads, removing mature trees and removing fences jeopardizes our historical designation. If we continue this trend we can welcome Speedway and McDonalds as I-675 comes through our once pristine township.” J. Mike Jess How long have you lived in the township? “I was born and raised in Elizabeth Township, 44 years.” Jess added that he is a graduate of Miami East High School and Clark State Community College, has served on the Miami County Fair Board for eight years and is in his third year as president. He is also a member of Cove Spring Church and Cove Springs Grange. Why are you choosing to run for a trustee position? “I have always had the desire to be a township trustee. I would like to give my time and energy to help keep Elizabeth Township the wonderful historic place that it is.” What do you do for a living? “I am a dock supervisor and city driver for a local trucking company. I also farm the family farm, which I am the 4th generation to be involved. The farm has been in the family for more than 70 years in Elizabeth Township.” Are there any future plans or projects you hope to achieve if elected? “The township is an excellent place to live. With Fire Protection, EMS Service and the Community Center, these are great services that are provided. If the budget would permit, I would like to see full time police protection back in the area.” Greg Dilts, incumbent How long have you lived in the township? “Thirteen years. I’m married to my wonderful wife, Angela (McDaniel) Dilts and have three kids, Meagan, Colton and Andrew.” Why are you choosing to run for a trustee position? “I thoroughly enjoy the position and the responsibilities that

Create positive changes while preserving our historical heritage and do the right thing!” John Ryman, incumbent How long have you lived in the township? “I have lived in the township almost 13 years.” Why are you choosing to run for a trustee position? “I am currently a trustee as I was appointed to that position by the Miami County Prosecutor’s Office in May of this year after an interview process of all the potential candidates. I have chosen to run for a full four-year term seat as trustee for several reasons. First and foremost, I love this township and this community. I would like to do everything possible to continue to make Elizabeth Township a wonderful place to live and a great place to raise a family, now, and for the future generations. Secondly, I have a strong sense of desire to serve and be involved in the community that I live in. I believe and know that I have the unique blend of skills, knowledge, qualifications, and personal attributes necessary to do a great job for this township and its residents. I have owned and managed a successful business for the past 27 years (Quality Lawn, Landscape, & Fence Inc.). I have a thorough working knowledge of finances and budgets. I fully understand about fiscal responsibility and fiscal accountability! Another important attribute that I bring to the table after 27 years in business is that I am good at communicating and inter-acting with people. But, even more importantly, I am a good listener, and listening is incredibly important to this position as trustee. I intend to listen to the residents’ concerns, answer their questions, here their Ideas

and any input they may have. I will represent the community, lead the community, and manage the township operations fairly, equally, impartially, and smartly. I plan to draw upon my experience as a business owner to manage township operations, to solve problems and to overcome any difficult challenges. Elizabeth Township is a beautiful, rural, historic township that is listed on the National Registry of Historical places. We need to continue to encourage promote, and support the preservation of this of this for our future.” What do you do for a living? “I am President and General Manager of Quality Lawn, Landscape, & Fence Inc.” Are there any future plans or projects you hope to achieve if elected? “I would like to maintain some of the wonderful services that we have in place such as our Community Center, which includes a fitness center, gym, meeting rooms, walking track, and historical museum. We also have our own 24 hour fire and EMS service. I believe these important services can be maintained and even improved upon through smart financial decisions and management. These services are a great asset to our township residents and certainly increase our property values, safety, and quality of life. I also plan to see through the renovation projects of our historic cemeteries. We have one cemetery now completed with plans in place and money budgeted to complete the rest. As far as any new projects, they would need to evaluated and planned based on need and careful consideration of the financial impact to the township.” William (Bill) Sutherly How long have you lived in the township? “I am a lifelong resident of Elizabeth Township.” Why are you choosing to run for a trustee position? “My reason for running for trustee is to maintain our quality services-Elizabeth Township Community Center, EMS and Fire Protection, Walnut Grove Learning Center, Farmland Preservation, cemeteries, roads, to name a few. All of these services can continue without levying additional taxes from residents.” What do you do for a living? “I farm fulltime with my brothers.” Are there any future plans or projects you hope to achieve if elected? “I strive to maintain the quality of life in rural Historic Elizabeth Township.” — Compiled by Jennifer Runyon

Combines impeccable character with expertise


Tuscaloosa (Ala.) News on nuclear weapons must remain secure: For more than 40 years, the United States and the Soviet Union stared at each other across a line that Winston Churchill dubbed the “Iron Curtain.” Opposing aims and ambitions between the Soviets and the West kept the world on the edge of real war throughout the Cold War. The most terrifying aspect of those years was the threat of nuclear war. After both sides obtained “the bomb,” many feared that confrontation would lead to an allout exchange in which both sides would empty their nuclear arsenals and life as we know it would cease to exist on Planet Earth. The easing of tensions that came with the collapse of the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact was a great relief. But both sides continued to maintain their nuclear arsenals, and nuclear weapons have proliferated around the world. Some might argue that the United States no longer needs hundreds of intercontinental ballistic missiles housed in silos sprinkled throughout the Great Plains. While they do seem like a relic of the recent past, the U.S. has not scrapped them. Perhaps they are needed as a deterrent to or defense against an as-yet-unidentified threat. Nevertheless, it is certain that the weapons intended to protect the U.S. must never be turned against it. … Air Force officers tasked with overseeing ICBMs were discovered doing that — literally. Blast doors to underground command posts were left open against regulations. The doors were far from the only defense for these command posts against terrorism. But now isn’t the time to become lackadaisical about security. Although peacetime discipline can be difficult to maintain, this isn’t exactly peacetime. Terrorists blew up one building on Sept. 11, 2001. A nuclear weapon would take out a whole city full of buildings. That may be a far-fetched scenario. But the first step toward it becoming reality is dropping our guard.

The Courier, Houma, La., on children’s online activity must be monitored: The American Academy of Pediatrics has some good advice: Keep track of where your children go, what they say and what they read when they are online. The academy suggests not just keeping track of children’s online behavior but limiting the time they spend online and keeping smart phones and laptops out of their bedrooms. The mere thought of this might make parents cringe, imagining the revolt that could take place. But the momentary trouble and turmoil can be worthwhile, the group says. Online behavior and language can have real-world effects, from bullying to violence to obesity, the experts say. And parents need to stay on top of what children are doing. A 2010 report found that children between 8 and 18 years old spend an average of more than seven hours a day using entertainment media. That seems excessive, therefore we must set a good example along with setting the limits. When we get home from work, do we rush to talk to our family members or do we plop down in front of the television or computer? Are idle weekend afternoons spent outside with the family or in the living room watching football or something else? Strasburger’s primary point, and it is a compelling one, is that parents must be aware of their kids’ activities and limit them to healthy amounts of time. That makes sense and do does this: Make sure you set a good example for how to use televisions, computers, cell phones and anything else in moderation rather than in the extreme. This will make limits on that activity more sensible and perhaps even unnecessary. More healthy interaction with our children can only help them and us.

To the Editor: It is extremely rare when a person who is running for public office combines impeccable character with the expertise necessary to perform the job at hand. In his bid to become Concord Township Trustee, Don Pence does just that. I was blessed to work shoulder to shoulder with Don when he served as Treasurer of Troy City Schools, and I watched him skillfully manage annual budgets of more than $40 million. His attention to detail was unparalleled and as both his peer and local taxpayer I trusted him implicitly. Because of his money management skills and his integrity he was as respected by his peers as any school treasurer in Ohio. In addition to his responsibilities as treasurer, Don was also charged with ensuring that millions of dollars of school district

buildings and grounds were well maintained. Thanks in large part to his diligence, schools that are between 40 and 100 years old are still in outstanding condition and serving the students and taxpayers of the community very well. Upon his retirement from the schools, Don served as interim fiscal officer for Concord Township, gaining invaluable knowledge about the township’s inner workings. When you combine this experience with the skills he honed during two decades of managing public funds and the expertise he developed caring for millions of dollars of facilities, the folks of Concord Township could do no better than to elect Don Pence as Concord Township Trustee. Tom Dunn Troy

Family-oriented, trustworthy and community-minded To the Editor: We encourage all Elizabeth Township residents to get out and vote for Greg Dilts, trustee. Greg has all the great qualities to continue representing our community as a trustee. He is very family-oriented, trustworthy, and community-minded. He is fiscally responsible while providing solutions for our residents. If something needs done, it gets done. Greg has personally removed tree limb obstacles on the sides of several area roads, He has investigated suspicious activity and trash dumping in the township.

He encourages citizen involvement in the Township and listens to residents to get their concerns resolved promptly. His 19 years as a paramedic/firefighter with the city of Troy and seven years as a sheriff Deputy with Miami County bode well for issues that come up with our EMS station, public safety and citizens’ sense of security within our Township. Vote Dilts for Elizabeth Township Trustee. Jennifer and Terry Henley Troy

Motivated individual with the right skills, qualifications To the Editor: Elizabeth Township residents please join me in voting for John Ryman for trustee. He has the necessary skills and qualifications to head our township and community in a positive direction. He was appointed to his current position as a trustee in May of this year by the Miami County Courts. I believe he was chosen over the other potential candidates as he was best qualified and ready to serve our township appropriately. He is a motivated individual with the proven

leadership skills that we need. He has owned and operated a successful business for many years in the area and is obviously astute in working with and understanding financial matters. I have spoken with John at great length about many issues concerning Elizabeth Township. I believe and know that he only has the best interest of this township and its residents in mind.

The ‘Obamacare’ whiners are out in full force Troy Troy

Henry Waxman made a plea Wednesday at the end of a House hearing grilling Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. The California Democrat asked Republicans to reach across the aisle to work with Democrats to improve Obamacare. Yes, Henry Waxman, who has made a career of ideological witch hunts and smash-mouth partisanship, wants a cease-fire over Obamacare, or so he says. He was picking up a common liberal theme: It’s not fair that Republicans continue to oppose the president’s eponymous health-care law and pick at its failures, deceits and irrationalities. If only they were more reasonable, Obamacare could be tightened up with a few technocratic fixes and go on to its glorious destiny. It’s a little late to get Republican buy-in, though. That would have required serious compromise back in 2009, when Democrats, at the high tide of their power in the Obama era, saw no reason to make any. They insisted on this particular law, at this particular time. They own it. They own every canceled policy, every

rate increase, every unintended ger Greg Sargent, “to have an consequence and every unpopu- actual debate about the law’s lar intended consequence.

They complain that buy insurance on your own, you Republicans are refusing, in the will be getting a better deal.” words of Washington Post blog- Not if they are forced — as many

of them will be — to buy benefits they don’t need at a price they don’t want to pay. From the beginning, Obamacare has depended on a political ethic of doing and saying whatever is necessary. The falsehood about people keeping their coverage was essential to selling the legislation. So the president repeated it relentlessly. Now that actually allowing people keep their current coverage would undermine a pillar of the law, the president will resist all efforts to make good on his famous promise. Near the end of his Boston remarks, the president said, “If Republicans in Congress were as eager to help Americans get covered as some Republican governors have shown themselves to be, we’d make a lot of progress.” Is that how we’d make a lot of progress? The president got his law, and it’s possible more people will be uninsured in 2014 than if it had never passed. That’s on him, no matter how much he and his supporters want to evade responsibility for their own achievement.

Four seek seats on M-U BOE WEST MILTON — Four community members are seeking two Milton-Union Board of Education seats in the election Nov. 5. Samuel Huffman and Larry Dehus are both seeking reelection. Attempting to unseat them is Connie Jo McCarroll and Daniel Smiley. What follows are excerpts from surveys some of the candidates returned. Name: Connie Jo McCarroll Age: 67 Work/Job Title: Pediatrician at Caro Pediatrics, Dayton Why did you decide to run for election: I have been an advocate for children all my professional career. I feel that is another opportunity to continue to use my gifts, and being able to give back to my community. What are the key issues facing MiltonUnion schools: Most importantly for me is winning the confidence back of the general public after the hurtful feelings over the loss of the “old” high school. Secondly is to insure that our students are prepared to meet the challenges of the future and are truly learning, not just prepared for testing. Name: Larry M. Dehus Age: 66 Family info: Wife Vicki; children Andrew Dehus, Columbus, Ben Dehus, West Milton and Corey Dehus, Mill Valley, Calif. Work/Job Title: Founder and president of Law Science Technologies, West Milton, practicing forensic scientist. Past Political Experience: Milton-Union Board of Education for 18 years Why did you decide to seek reelection: The current Milton-Union Board of Education works together with the administrators to make a very

Daniel Smiley

cohesive and effective leadership team. I wantt ocontinue to be a part of that team. I was the board representative to the K-12 construction and I want to assist in the process to “fine tune” the building with respect to function and energy usage. What are the key issues facing MiltonUnion schools: The first issue will be to fight for fair funding for our schools from the state of Ohio. I have met with Representative Richard Adams and Senator Bill Beagle to enlist their help to correct the most recent state funding formula that punishes rural school districts with farmland. Second, I will continue to work with the administration to improve the learning environment for our students and raise student performance to all grade levels. Name: Daniel Smiley Age: 50 Family info: Wife Lisa; children

Samantha, Columbus; Danielle, Columbus; Kain, Potsdam. Work/Job Title: Morning Fresh Superior Foods, Union City, Ohio Past Political Experience: Eight years public office as the mayor for the Village of Potsdam Why did you decide to run for the board of education: I like being a part of the solution. I was always taught, for example, that if you didn’t vote in an election that you had no room to comment on the outcome. In the same sense, if you want to be a part of a decision making team such as the Board of Education you need to make yourself available for the position. What are the key issues facing MiltonUnion schools: First off, everyone knows that we have a new school, and they should know that state funding is in a questionable state every year. So the funding of our school on a yearly and long term basis is a challenge every year that has to be looked at. This is where I want voters to know that I would do my best to think of them and the contribution that they give in part in the budgeting of the school. Secondly, I feel that we have to look at the direction that our school will be taking in the future. With our superintendent retiring and rehiring, you have to feel that at some point in time that this position will become open. Dr. Rammel has given a lot to this community and her shoes would be hard to fill if this came about, but as I stated earlier: I want to be a part of the solution. If new leadership is needed, I want to help choose the direction of the community that I reside in. Samuel Huffman is also running for the school board. — Compiled by Joyell Nevins

Former Yankees pitcher Kucks dies HILLSDALE, N.J. (AP) — Johnny Kucks, who pitched a three-hitter for the New York Yankees in Game 7 of the 1956 World Series, has died. He was 81. Becker Funeral Home in Westwood confirmed Kucks died on Thursday, but declined to provide further details. Kucks pitched in four World Series with the Yankees from 1955-58, going 1-0 with a 1.89 ERA in eight games. But the right-hander is best known for his crisp performance in New York’s 9-0 victory against the Brooklyn Dodgers in the last World Series game at Ebbets Field. Kucks, a Hoboken native, went 54-56 with a 4.10 ERA in six seasons in the majors with New

York and the Kansas City Athletics. His best season occurred in 1956, when he went 18-9 with a 3.85 ERA.

Former judge Karen Williams dies ORANGEBURG, S.C. — Karen Williams, the former chief judge of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, died at her home Saturday. She was 62. Mark Hutto of DukesHarley Funeral Home said Williams died Saturday. A cause of death wasn’t given. Williams retired from the appeals court in 2009, saying she had early onset Alzheimer’s disease. Williams received her B.A. degree from Columbia College in 1972. After teaching in the public schools, she pursued a

legal career. She received her J.D. from the University of South Carolina in 1980. Williams was nominated to the court in 1992 by President George H.W. Bush, and became the first woman ever on the 4th Circuit bench. She had been chief judge since 2007 when fellow South Carolinian William Wilkins became a senior judge.

Trojans run at state

Nosker 44th, Jones 70th at highest level Josh Brown Sports Editor

HEBRON — Branden Nosker and Stephen Jones had high hopes. And though the Troy duo was disappointed with how the race went, they still managed to maintain a glass-half-full outlook on the day. Maybe even more than half full. Nosker, a senior making his second consecutive trip to the Division I state cross country meet, finished 44th in the final race of his high school career, improving upon his 57th-place finish a season ago. And Jones, a sophomore running for the first time at the state’s highest level at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, finished 70th. Nosker finished in a time of 16:22.36 on a soft and muddy track that kept everyone’s times high across the board. And by the time the D-I boys ran — the final race of the day — the temperature had dropped significantly, and a chill wind had picked up to make things even tougher.

“I didn’t get the end result I wanted, but I was glad to be here again,” Nosker said. “Some people don’t even get the opportunity to race at state once. “It really was (tough). Times were real slow today, the course was mushy and the wind had a little to do with it, too. But it is what it is.” Jones, meanwhile, finished in 16:37.43 in his first try on the course — with two more chances yet to come. He missed out his freshman year due to injuries. “I didn’t really know what to expect today here,” Jones said. “But Branden sort of guided me throughout the season, and him being here last year helped me out, too. “I know I didn’t run at all the way I’m capable of running today. But there aren’t many people that can say they got here as a sophomore, so I was happy that I got the opportunity to come here today and race.” “They both got out well in the first mile,” Troy coach Bob Campbell said. “Then Stephen dropped back a bit, and I could tell he just wasn’t feeling it.

was feeling it before the race, was really pumped up and energetic, but you never know how kids are going to react once they get here. “I know both would have loved to have gotten into the top 25, but it just wasn’t meant to be today.”

HEBRON — After sweeping the regional races, Tippecanoe’s boys and girls knew they were expected to perform well at state. So they exceeded those expectations. The Red Devil boys finished second as a team, while the girls finished fifth at the Division II state meet Saturday at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, a fitting end to a strong season — and the careers of two standout runners. • Lasting Legacy They raced so well, they didn’t want to stop after their own race was over. On their way to the podium to collect their prize, the Tippecanoe boys lined up in two-point stances on the drag-racing strip at National Trail Raceway for an impromptu sprint. Senior Jay Schairbaum, instead of taking part, stood out in front of them and acted as the starter. He had done enough racing for one high school career — and went out in the best way possible. Schairbaum finished 17th — one place away from an individual spot on the podium — and led the Red Devils to a second-place finish as a team at the Division II state cross country meet Saturday. The Red Devils finished with 140 points, while Defiance won with 107 points. “I’m thrilled,” Schairbaum said. “I don’t think there could have been a better end to this season.” “The D-II boys race was wide open. We knew that coming in,” Tippecanoe coach Byron Kimmel said. “But I didn’t want to put that kind of pressure on the boys, ‘I think you can win it all.’ So our goal was to get on the podium — and we pulled it off.” But even coming in as a regional champion — and with the individual regional champion, sophomore Mitchell Poynter, as well — Tippecanoe wasn’t given much of a chance by the pollsters.

TC’s Garver 17th at state Josh Brown Sports Editor

HEBRON — Zac Garver always liked to run. It just took a while for him to figure out just how good he was at it. “Since I was little, I used to run just to get my energy out,” the Troy Christian sophomore said. “A lot of people think running is torturous, but it’s relaxing to me. Then my eighth grade year, I trained over the summer and ran in my church’s 5K — and I won it. From then on, I knew I was good at running, so I’ve just kept working on it. “God gave me the ability. Why not use it?” Garver did just that Saturday at the highest level in the state, finishing 17th — one place shy of a spot on the podium — Saturday at the Division III state cross country meet at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, a stellar end to his firstever season running cross country. • See GARVER on page A9

Buckeyes blast Boilermakers, 56-0 ‘What could have been’ for Trojans And so another frustrating season comes to an end for the Troy football team. With a 33-27 loss to Piqua Friday night, Troy finished the season 3-7. On the heels of a 4-6 finish in 2012, it’s the first time the Trojans have posted back-to-back losing seasons since 20022003. Not that Troy didn’t have it’s chances to finish with a winning record — close losses to Springfield Shawnee, Butler, Miamisburg and Piqua are going to sting for quite some time. Now the Trojans find themselves in a state of flux. They lose the bulk of their offense — gone are quarterback Matt Barr, 1,000-yard tailback Miles Hibbler, top receivers Alex Magoteaux, Austin Kyzer and Gregory Johnson, tight end Seth Overla and offensive linemen Alex Dalton, Andrew Kostecka and Austin Eidemiller. All told, Troy will lose eight starters on offense. See Page A7

WEST LAFAYET TE, Ind. (AP) — Urban Meyer thought Ohio State needed a pregame wake-up call Saturday. The Buckeyes answered with a quick flurry. Interception return, touchdown. Two plays, touchdown. Six plays, touchdown. Two plays, touchdown. And that was just in the first quarter.

Miller went 19 of 23 before giving way to Kenny Guiton for good in the second half. Guiton was 8 of 11, throwing one TD pass and running for two more. He finished with 98 yards rushing on nine carries, second only to Carlos Hyde who ran for 111 yards on eight carries. Tight end Jeff Heuerman caught five passes for a career-high 116 yards and was one of five different Ohio State receivers to score. • See OHIO on page A7

Plus, the Buckeyes defense forced two turnovers, added six more sacks to their Big Ten-leading number and limited the Boilermakers to 116 total yards as a large contingent of scarlet-and-gray clad fans turned the road game into a pseudo home contest in the second half when most of the Boilermakers fans left. The combination was enough to keep Ohio State on track for a second straight perfect season and a potential berth in the BCS title game. But the Buckeyes, admittedly, needed some early help. “It was an early morning, we had to get up early, we had to get prepared, we had to eat well,” Miller said. “We had to get the guys going and the coaches talked to us and got us hyped.” Purdue certainly didn’t need that. The game that was billed as a blackout turned into a washout. How bad was it? Etling, the freshman, was 13 of 29 for 89 yards. Purdue’s mistake-prone secondary was gouged so often by the Ohio State quarterbacks that the Boilers gave up a recordbreaking scoring total in Ross-Ade Stadium for the second time this season. The Boilermakers head into next week’s game against Iowa with eight consecutive scoreless quarters and with the dubious achievement of failing to

third consecutive game. Purdue hasn’t taken a snap inside the opponents’ 20yard line since late in a Sept. 28 loss to Northern Illinois, and still hasn’t beaten a Football Bowl Subdivision since Darrell Hazell took over the program after last season. “We didn’t tackle very well, we had guys out of place quite a few times (on defense) and we need to get off the blocks,” Hazell said. “We can’t get a quarterback beat up the way we did. We had problems in pass protection.” Miller & Co. made them pay for those miscues, seemingly every time. On the game’s second snap, Grant stepped in front of B.J. Knauf, picked off Etling’s pass and sprinted 33 yards to make it 7-0. Miller then threw a 40yard TD pass to a wide open Jeff Heuerman on the Buckeyes’ second offensive play to give Ohio State a 140 lead. Before the first quarter ended, Miller threw an 8yard TD pass to Nick Vannett and a 2-yard shovel pass for a TD to Corey Brown to make it 28-0. Not enough? Guiton threw a 1-yard TD pass to Chris Fields midway through the second quarter, and Miller hooked up with Ezekiel Elliott on a 10-yard scoring pass later in the first half to make it 42-0 at the half. Guiton ran for two scores in the second half to close out the milestone victory.

Troy faces long offseason

Yet another year of ‘What could have been’ for Trojans BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor TROY — And so another frustrating season comes to an end for the Troy football team. With a 33-27 loss to Piqua Friday night, Troy finished the season 3-7. On the heels of a 4-6 finish in 2012, it’s the first time the Trojans have posted backto-back losing seasons since 2002-2003. Not that Troy didn’t have it’s chances to finish with a winning record — close losses to Springfield Shawnee, Butler, Miamisburg and Piqua are going to sting for quite some time. Now the Trojans find themselves in a state of flux. They lose the bulk of their offense — gone are quarterback Matt Barr, 1,000-yard tailback Miles Hibbler, top receivers Alex Magoteaux, Austin Kyzer and Gregory Johnson, tight end Seth Overla and offensive linemen Alex Dalton, Andrew Kostecka and Austin Eidemiller. All told, Troy will lose eight starters on offense. Defensively, the Trojans’ losses are almost as big. Troy will lose Overla at defensive end, Josh Detrick and Tristan Wright at outside linebacker, Magoteaux and Rohsaun Wesson and safety and Johnson and Todd Norris at cornerback. That means a Troy team that has struggled much of the past two seasons will be in rebuilding mode going into the offseason. First, however, some final notes from Troy’s 3327 loss to Piqua Friday. • Player of the Game As he has all season, Miles Hibbler carried Troy’s offense on his back Friday. Hibbler finished the game with 25 carries for 184 yards and two touchdowns. For the season, Hibbler — who will play for Kent State University next year — rushed for 1,600 yards, becoming the first Trojan running back to top the 1,000-yard mark since Matt Allen in 2008. Hibbler also become only the second running back in school history to rush for 1,000 or more yards on a


Piqua’s Elijah Hudson (24) tackles Troy’s Anthony Shoop Friday night during the regular season finale for both teams at Troy Memorial Stadium. Troy team that finished with a losing record. Current Troy assistant coach Tom Massie accomplished that same feat in 1968. • Unsung Hero of the Game Few players made more contributions on both sides of the ball more than Trojan receiver/safety Alex Magoteaux. Against the Indians, Magoteaux recorded a touchdown-saving safety that helped keep the Trojans in the game. He also caught five passes for 46 yards. Magoteaux was Troy’s leading receiver on the year, catching 32 passes for 388 yards and a pair of touchdowns. • Play of the Game Troy had a chance to tie the game in the fourth quarter after forcing a

Yeomans fumble at the Trojan 40. Down 27-20, Troy faced third-and-5 at its own 45. Troy quarterback Matt Barr was sacked for a 14-yard loss, however, and forced to punt. Piqua scored on the ensuing drive and was able to stave off a late rally by the Trojans for the win. • What We Learned Much of what we learned is what we already knew. For two seasons, Troy has come close to winning big games, only to fall short at the end. In 2012, Troy had its chances to win against Chaminade Julienne, Springfield, Miamisburg, Butler and Piqua. This year, Troy had its chances against Chaminade, Springfield Shawnee, Miamisburg, Butler and Piqua. The

Trojans are a combined 713 the past two seasons, but with a handful of plays here and there, could just as easily be 16-4. Troy has to find a way to get over the hump. • What Happens Now Troy will have much work to do in the offseason. In addition to filling all the holes on both sides of the ball left by graduation, the Trojans need to find a way to change the culture. If Troy can find a way to win those close games they’ve managed to find ways to lose the past seasons, a turnaround isn’t impossible. Troy needs to open next season with some big wins, gain some confidence and get things rolling. In the past two years, Troy has never won more than two games in a row.

Devils, Vikings claim top seeds BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor

All of the disappointments of the past, all of the expectations for the season, the weight seemingly of the entire world. None of it mattered to the Tippecanoe Red Devils once Friday night’s game was over. The Devils shut down Springfield Shawnee 21-7 in a battle between two 9-0 teams, with the Central Buckeye Conference Kenton Trail Division title and a home game in the playoffs at stake and Tippecanoe looking to end a three-game losing streak to the Braves. And Tippecanoe did it in convincing fashion, too. Despite the Braves closing to within a touchdown right before halftime, Shawnee never truly threatened — thanks to a 72-yard touchdown by Jacob Hall on the first play from scrimmage in the second half. From there, the Red Devil defense went to work and shut down the CBC’s leading rusher, holding Jalen Nelson to 61 yards. With the win, the Devils jumped from fourth to first in the Division III, Region 10 playoff standings, setting up a rematch with the Kenton Ridge Cougars — who Tippecanoe defeated 35-7 on Oct. 27, a game in which Hall ran for five touchdowns. Tippecanoe also avoided the bullet that is Trotwood — the Rams went from 10th to seventh with their win over Butler, and will travel to Franklin in the first round. Shawnee fell all the way to sixth and


Tippecanoe’s Jacob Hall rushed for five touchdowns the first time the Red Devils faced Kenton Ridge. will travel to Wapakoneta on Friday. Also clinching the top seed in its region was 9-1 Miami East with its 39-6 win over Twin Valley South. Friday night, the Vikings will host a Division VI, Region 22 playoff game against another familiar foe, Tri-County North — which the Vikings defeated 24-21 in overtime on the road on Oct. 18. Covington and Lehman will also host first-round playoff games. The Buccaneers, who had already clinched a home game heading into Friday night, held onto their No. 2 spot in Division VII, Region 26 with a 49-6 win over Ansonia, and they will host

Portsmouth Notre Dame on Saturday. The Cavaliers, meanwhile, held onto the No. 4 spot and will host Bainbridge Paint Valley on Saturday. The Troy Christian Eagles also brought about a successful end to their return season. After not fielding a football team in 2012, Troy Christian finished with a .500 record at 4-4 with a 35-0 victory over Waynesfield Goshen Friday night. The Eagles will be looking to get back into the OHSAA and back into a league next season — and this year’s performance should go a long way in earning them some respect. Milton-Union and Bethel

also both finished the season with victories. The Bulldogs knocked off Northridge 3712 on the strength of Kenton Dickison’s four touchdowns to finish the season 2-8 after dropping their first seven games, and Bethel held off Arcanum 28-12 to finish with a 4-6 record and two straight wins after a fivegame skid — four of which came at the hands of playoff teams. The Bradford Railroaders, meanwhile, followed up a playoff season with a winless season after a 30-12 loss to Mississinawa Valley Friday night, and they’ll go into next season looking to improve fundamentally to avoid another 010 showing.

son in the spring. “I want to go to state in track, too, hopefully in the 4x800. We’ve got a good shot there,” Jones said. “I also want to break 4:25 in the mile and the 9:30s in the two-mile.” “Branden got here two years in a row, and Stephen’s got two years left,” Campbell said. “I was a little disappointed for them today because they didn’t run the way they’d hoped, but I was not disappointed in them being here.”

Boardman’s Mark Hadley won the race in a time of 15:10.63, with the slowest of the 145 finishers running a stillimpressive 18-flat. St. Xavier won the team standings with 46 points, with Dublin Jerome second (105), Hilliard Davidson third (154) and Boardman fourth (160). But it isn’t the end of either Trojans’ running career. Nosker will continue to run in college, while Jones has already turned his gaze on track and field sea-

“He’s a sophomore, it’s his first year in the sport at all, so just getting here and getting this experience is big,” Troy Christian coach Jeff McDaniel said. “And then he did so well, too. That’s the highest place ever for a Troy Christian runner here.” Garver ran a time of 16:35.41, finishing behind Maplewood senior Solomon Yoder’s 16:29.47, which was the podium cut-off. When his coach came over and told him his official place, Garver gave a disappointed look, but McDaniel was right there to reassure him. “His goal was to get on the podium, to finish top 16. And he knew it would take a PR to do that most likely,” McDaniel said. “He was right on his marks at the mile and two-mile markers.” “I gave it my all,” Garver said. “I raced my heart out, enjoyed the experience — and I learned from it. It was a great experience, and I just want to thank my family, my coach and God for giving me this ability.” And after such a stellar burst-onto-the-scene season in his first try ever, it’s hard to imagine where the limit is for Garver. “This is not the end for him,” McDaniel said. Lehman senior Joe Fuller finished off his high school career with a 22nd-place finish, running a time of 16:39.96. McDonald senior Bobby Johnson won the race in a time of 15:45.48, leading his team to a first-place finish with 94 points. Maplewood was second (103), Garaway third (141) and Summit Country Day fourth (171). In the Division III girls race, Lehman sophomore Caroline Heitmeyer placed 16th in a time of 19:27.72, with freshman teammate Jenna Zimmerman finishing 64th (20:21.84). Covington sophomore Carly Shell finished 24th (19:37.65) and freshman teammate Anna Dunn was 66th (20:23.23). “I am not too happy with this race,” Shell said. “I cramped up at the end and a bunch of girls went past me. This was definitely a good experience. This is different than any cross country race I have ever run in.” “I didn’t get it (under 20 minutes today), but that is something I can work on for next year,” Dunn said. “I will get it. It was a tough race. I never even expected to get here as a freshman, so I am pretty happy with what I accomplished.” Miami East freshman Marie Ewing finished 111th (21:30.39). “It was a really fast race,” Ewing said. “It was a muddy in a couple spots, but not too bad. It does (give her big expectations). I want to come back here and win this before I am done.” Liberty Center’s Brittany Atkinson won the race in 18:31.45, leading her team to a first-place finish with 98 points. Gilmour Academy was second (110), Coldwater third (110) and St. Thomas Aquinas fourth (133).

TIPP From page A6 And Schairbaum took note. “I’m not someone that looks at the stats or things like that going into a race. But I kind of looked at where everyone thought teams would finish today — and all of them had us much lower,” Schairbaum said. “But I know the kind of team we have, and I knew we could do it. I thought it was possible that we could win.” And he did everything he could to make that happen, too, running a time of 16:35.86 to finish 17th. “I was just kind of disappointed that I didn’t finish one place higher,” Schairbaum said. “Jay ran the race of his life today,” Kimmel said. “He’s the only senior on varsity, and we were talking the other day about leaving a legacy. He took care of that today. He was just awesome.” Poynter finished 27th in 16:50.42, Daniel Frame was 43rd (17:00.28), Evan Wharton was Photos by Josh Brown/Troy Daily News

Tippecanoe’s Evan Wharton runs at the Division II state meet at National Trail Raceway Saturday.

65th (17:16.52), Jacob Stillwagon was 79th (17:27.85), Tim Andrews was 87th (17:31.49) and Jared Rindler was 92nd (17:34.24). “Mitch was a little off, but the other guys picked him up,” Kimmel said. “He’s a sophomore, and he’ll be back. He’ll be a threat to win here before he’s done. But the kids flatout stepped it up today in a crucial time. “We exceeded everybody’s expectations here.” Sheridan’s Matt Bromley won the race in 16:04.58. In the team standings, Chagrin Falls was third (177), Wyoming was fourth (184) and Springfield Shawnee was fifth (191). • Better With Company Allison Sinning had a devious plan to make sure her senior season at Tippecanoe would go on just a bit longer. “I joked yesterday that I was going to get to the finish line and just stop, not cross it,” the Red Devil senior said. “Because I don’t want the season to be over. I love running with these girls so much.” That may not have worked out as well as what she actually did. Sinning finished third at the Division II state cross country meet Saturday at National Trail Raceway, running a time of 18:21.30 — and giving herself a chance to cheer her teammates to a fifthplace finish as a team. Sinning transferred to Tippecanoe last year from Arkansas, and she ran at the state meet as a individual, finishing seventh. She was disappointed, though, that Tippecanoe barely missed out on a trip to state

as a team. Which made this season a special one. “Oh, it was 10 times better,” Sinning said of running with her team at state. “I love my whole team. When I got here, the girls all took me under their wings, and all I wanted was to have my team here with me. Even at practice every day this week, we were all like, ‘we’re going to state! We’re going to state!’ It’s been unbelievable.” “It’s been an unbelievable season. It really has,” Tippecanoe coach Byron Kimmel said. “We won the County, the CBC, the district, the regional, and here we are today. It’s been a storybook season. “We didn’t run our best race as a team today, but for the conditions, we didn’t do bad. I would’ve liked to have seen us more aggressive in the beginning, but most of the girls hadn’t been here before. Allison really got after it, though, and Hailey Brumfield really ran well today.” Hailey Brumfield finished 28th (19:31.3), Brinna Price was 58th (20:01), Abbi Halsey was 69th (20:12.6), Emily Wolfe was 85th (20:25.5), Kelly Rhoades was 124th (21:37.8) and Bailey Flora was 132nd (22:03.7). Wauseon junior Taylor Vernot (18:04.4) scored an upset by defeating Oakwood’s Mary Kate Vaughn (18.09.7) to claim the individual title. Akron St. Vincent-St. Marys won in the team standings with 101 points, Bay was second (119), Woodridge third (141), Lexington fourth (143) and Tippecanoe fifth (174). And with only Sinning graduating, the Red Devils are poised to return next year, as well. “We want to be here every year. We want to make this a regular trip,” Kimmel said. “This is the second time the team’s been here in five years, and fifth place? We’re happy with that. That’s something for the program to build on.”

Another football season draws to a close in Miami County David Fong

Executive Editor

MIAMI COUNTY — Was it really just two months ago that coaches and players were sweating their way through two-aday practices? Was it really just 10 weeks ago that the local high school football season kicked off with Troy traveling to Wayne to take on Chaminade Julienne on a Thursday night? Has the football season really gone by that quickly? Yes, it has. In the blink of an eye, the high school football regular season has come to an end — welcome to the fastest 10 weeks of the year. While several Miami County teams will see their seasons extend into the playoffs this coming week, for most of the county schools, the season ended this past Friday. And for hundreds of high school football players, band members and cheerleaders, a magical time in their lives has come to

Covington’s A.J. Ouellette (12), above, breaks away from the Miami East defense on a long run Friday night at Miami East. Ouellette had 268 yards and three touchdowns in the Buccs’ 34-0 win. Right, Miles Hibbler of Troy High School had several runs for the Trojans in August.

an end as well. Only a select few will move on to play, perform or cheer at the college level. Most will only have fond memories of those Friday night lights to look back upon. Fans are the fortunate ones. In another nine months, a new football season will begin and a new set of faces will snap the footballs, play the trumpets and shake their pom-poms. In a football-mad state such as Ohio, is all a part of the circle of life. One season ends — but another one always is looming right around the corner. But for those who actually participate on Friday nights, a chapter has forever closed in their lives. They will never again be able to lace up the cleats, polish their trumpets or make sure their hair is fixed just-so before performing in front of thousands of their friends, family members and other supporters. With that in mind, we wanted to take one last look back at the 2013 high school football season. And to those who made this year so The Troy High School Marching Band, under the direction of Kathy McIntosh, entertains a crowd with its premiere performance during the Salute to Veterans Ceremony at the 2013 Miami County Fair. special … thanks for the memories.

First lady Michelle Obama, center, with PBS Sesame Street’s characters Elmo, right, and Rosita, left, to help promote fresh fruit and vegetable consumption to kids in an event in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington, Wednesday. Sesame Workshop and the Produce Marketing Association joined in Partnership for a Healthier America in announcing a 2-year agreement to making healthy choices by using the Sesame Street characters to help deliver the messages about fresh fruits and vegetables.

Big Bird, Elmo to encourage kids to eat fresh produce ing the licensing fee for its Muppet characters for two years. As soon as next spring, shoppers and children accompanying them can expect to see their favorite Sesame Street characters on stand-alone signs and on stickers and labels on all types of produce regardless of whether it comes in a bag, a carton or just its skin. An “unprecedented step,” Mrs. Obama said of the agreement. “And they’re doing this free of charge. Yes!” she said as she pumped her fists in the air before an audience seated in the State Dining Room of the White

House. The first lady cited a study published last fall in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine in which Cornell University researchers gave more than 200 boys and girls ages 8 to 11 the choice of eating an apple, a cookie or both. Most kids went for the cookie. Asked to choose again after researchers put Elmo stickers on the apples, nearly double the number of kids chose the fruit, she said. “Just imagine what will happen when we take our kids to the grocery store, and they see Elmo and Rosita and the other Sesame Street Muppets they love up and down the produce aisle,” Mrs. Obama said. “Imagine what it will be like to have our kids begging us to buy them fruits and vegetables instead of cookies, candy and chips.” The agreement between Sesame Workshop and the Produce Marketing Association is the latest step by the private sector to support “Let’s Move,” the first lady’s nearly 4-year-old campaign to reduce childhood obesity rates in the U.S. It also is the first announcement since a summit on food marketing to children that Mrs. Obama convened at the White House last month, where she urged a broad range of companies to do more, faster, to promote foods with less salt, fat and sugar to youngsters. Sesame Street characters Elmo and Rosita, who also speaks Spanish, joined her for the announcement.

But as in the AP-NORC survey, the age gap grows among those who derive the greatest satisfaction from their work, as 38 percent of young adults express deep satisfaction compared with 63 percent age 65 and up. Smith says earlier in life, people are uncertain what career path they want to take and may be stuck in jobs they despise. Though some older workers stay on the job out of economic necessity, many others keep working because they can’t imagine quitting and genuinely like their jobs. Eileen Sievert of Minneapolis can relate. The French literature professor at the University of Minnesota used to think she would be retired by 65. But she’s 70 now and grown to love her work so much, it became hard to imagine leaving. She’s instead just scaled back her hours through a phased-retirement program. “I just like the job,” she said. “And you don’t want to leave, but you don’t want to stay too long.” Walter Whitmore, 58, of Silver Springs, Ark., feels the same. He says he has plenty of things to occupy him outside of his account representative job at a grocery distributor, but having a reason to get out of the house each day brings a certain level of fulfillment. He sees working as keeping him vibrant. “It wasn’t a goal to live to do nothing. You live to accomplish things,” he said. “You have to maintain that functionality or you turn into Jell-O.” Robert Schuffler, 96, still reports for work most days at the fish market he opened in Chicago decades ago. He has turned over ownership to a longtime employee, but he can’t imagine not seeing the customers he has known so long, and who still show up with a warm smile, a kiss for Shuffler and a shopping list. His job does more than just keep him feeling young: It keeps him happy. “It’s like some guy would make a million dollars today,” he said. “He’s very happy with the day. I’m very happy being here.”

He says he loves his job, and a new poll from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs finds he’s not alone: Nine out of 10 workers 50 and older say they’re satisfied with their work.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A trip down the grocery store produce aisle could soon feel like a stroll down “Sesame Street.” Michelle Obama announced Wednesday that the nonprofit organization behind the popular children’s educational TV program will let the produce industry use Elmo, Big Bird and Sesame Street’s other furry characters free of charge to market fruits and veggies to kids. The goal is to get children who often turn up their noses at the sight of produce to eat more of it. Under the arrangement, Sesame Workshop is waiv-

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Not happy with your job? Just wait. A study by The Associated PressNORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds that 9 in 10 workers who are age 50 or older say they are very or somewhat satisfied with their job. Older workers reported satisfaction regardless of gender, race, educational level, political ideology and income level. Consider Oscar Martinez. If Disneyland truly is the happiest place on earth, Martinez may be one of its happiest workers. Never mind that at 77, the chef already has done a lifetime of work. Or that he must rise around 3 a.m. each day to catch a city bus in time for breakfast crowds at Carnation Café, one of the park’s restaurants. With 57 years under his apron, he is Disneyland’s longestserving employee. “To me, when I work, I’m happy,” said Martinez, who’s not sure he ever wants to retire. Though research has shown people across age groups are more likely to report job satisfaction than dissatisfaction, older workers consistently have expressed more happiness with their work than younger people have. The AP-NORC survey found significant minorities of people reporting unwelcome comments at work about their age, being passed over for raises and promotions, and other negative incidents related to being older. But it was far more common to note the positive impact of their age. Six in 10 said colleagues turned to them for advice more often and more than 4 in 10 said they felt they were receiving more respect at work. Older workers generally have already climbed the career ladder, increased their salaries and reached positions where they have greater security, so more satisfaction makes sense, says Tom Smith, director of the General Social Survey, one of the most comprehensive polls of American attitudes. “It increases with age,” said Smith, whose biannual survey is conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago. “The older you are, the more of all these job-related benefits you’re going to have.” Looking at the 40-year history of the GSS, the share of people saying they are

Charlaine Harris looks to new series after Sookie FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The final book in Charlaine Harris’ best-selling series about telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse provoked such an outcry that some fans sent death threats and curses. But after spending the last 15 years writing about the intrepid small-town Southern girl whose adventures have featured a host of supernatural beings, Harris says she has no regrets. “I had to be true to my own vision for the books otherwise, what kind of writer am I? Not a very good one,” said Harris, adding that fan reaction to the end of the series was distressing. Harris said she knew it was time to end the Sookie books, which inspired the hit HBO series “True Blood,” when she wasn’t approaching each new addition with excitement. “And I thought, ‘You know, this is the time to end it, when I still have something to say.’” She released her final nod to Stackhouse and her world this week with “After Dead: What Came Next in the World of Sookie Stackhouse,” an illustrated book that lists the myriad of characters that appeared in the 13-book series and tells readers

what happens in the ensuing years. But, Harris says, don’t expect any revisions. “I wrote the ending the way I wrote it and I’m not going to change it.” The uproar over her “Dead Ever After” started when an online review appeared about two weeks before its official May release date. (A reviewer obtained a copy from a German bookseller.) “I thought I had two more weeks to brace for it, but I didn’t, and it was just overwhelmingly awful,” said Harris, 61. The most vehement were angry that Stackhouse didn’t end up with the vampire Eric. Harris said she’d Harris been steering readers to that eventuality. “Not only is who she ends up with not the point of the books, but I said all along: ‘She loves the sun. She doesn’t want to just be able to go out at night,’” Harris said. “And I said in every interview I gave when someone would ask me: ‘Sookie will never be a vampire.’ And still: shock, horror, amazement, accusations that I’d sold out. I thought, ‘If I would

have sold out I would have written the ending you wanted.’” Ginjer Buchanan, editorin-chief of Ace Books, which published the series, said it was a credit to the books that fans were so passionate. “What wasn’t good was that they just went totally overboard,” she said. But as fall approached, Harris said the reaction calmed. And she even got some apologies. Harris published her first book in 1981. After years of writing conventional mysteries, she wanted to try something different, something supernatural. It took two years to sell the first Stackhouse book, but it wasn’t long after “Dead Until Dark” was released in 2001 that Harris knew she had a hit. Buchanan said it was published at a time when urban fantasy was becoming popular. And, she said, Harris set herself apart by basing the series in the fictional town of Bon Temps, La. “This is a series that once readers found it they were fans for life,” said Kaite Stover, director of readers’ services for the Kansas City Public Library in

Missouri. “Charlaine Harris actually crafted in that first book a wonderful blend of romance, women’s fiction, Southern humor and urban fantasy.” Harris’ next series is set in Texas. She and her husband settled into the countryside outside Fort Worth about two years ago after living in Arkansas for about two decades. So far she’s signed for three books in the series. Stover predicts that those fans upset by the ending of the Sookie series will be happy. “They will remember when the new book comes out what they love about Charlaine Harris,” she said. “Midnight Crossroad,” to be released in May, is about “a mystical crossroad in a little dead Texas town,” Harris said. “It’s at an old town that’s partly derelict but there are a few homes and businesses still in use there. A town called Midnight. And there is a reason the people who live there are living there.” “I didn’t really intend it to be as supernatural as it’s turning out to be. It’s like I just can’t help myself.” Will there be vampires? “Well, there might be one vampire,” she said, eyes twinkling.

“Dallas 1963” (Twelve), by Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis “Dallas 1963” by Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis provides a chilling portrait of a city terrified by the election of a young, charismatic leader viewed by many as a threat to their way of life. It stays clear of conspiracy theories about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and takes a “just the facts” approach in painting a vivid picture of a volatile city during the Kennedy administration. The book tracks Dallas from early 1960 to late 1963 and introduces a colorful cast of Texas characters from the Rev. W.A. Criswell, who ranted about communism and integration, to Congressman Bruce Alger, who sang the praises of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee on the floor of Congress, to the rich oilman H.L. Hunt, who passionately agreed with both of them. Among the most dynamic of these was Maj. Gen. Edwin Walker, a daring military leader relieved of duty by Kennedy because of his increasingly outspoken views that “the enemy” was taking over the country. That cast of Dallas characters included a strip club owner named Jack Ruby and eventually a confused young communist sympathizer named Lee Harvey Oswald. Late in 1960, it became clear Texas was going to be a pivotal state in a close presidential election, and Sen. Lyndon Johnson and his wife visited Dallas on a campaign trip. Congressman Alger whipped his legions of women supporters, many from the most powerful families in Dallas, into a “mink coat mob,” who descended on the Johnsons at a top Dallas hotel, trapping them briefly. The scene backfired with negative publicity about the protesters, and may have contributed to a narrow Kennedy-Johnson win in the state. The irony was almost unbearable for the conservative powerbrokers in Texas. “The November attempt to crush Kennedy in Dallas has catapulted him to the presidency of the United States,” the authors write. In late 1962, with conservative firebrands like Walker dominating the headlines and the attention of the Kennedy administration, Oswald settled into Dallas with his young family. He was uneasily watching the president’s confrontations with Cuba and the communist world. The accounts of events in 1963 unfold in the book like a thriller novel, with many associates fearing a disaster because of Kennedy’s plans for a November trip to Dallas. When Adlai Stevenson, Kennedy’s ambassador to the UN, visited Dallas in October 1963, he encountered a large crowd of angry Texans booing and jeering him. A crowd of protesters descended on Stevenson as he left the hall, one striking him in the head with a placard. Stevenson told a friend “there was something very ugly and frightening about the atmosphere.” As Kennedy’s Dallas trip approached, friends and political allies all raised similar concerns. One Texas Democrat suggested the climate could inspire an unstable person to take action against the president.

Average mortgage at 4.10 percent WASHINGTON (AP) — Average U.S. rates on fixed mortgages fell for the second straight week and are at their lowest levels in four months. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday that the average rate on the 30-year loan declined to 4.10 percent from 4.13 percent last week. The average on the 15-year fixed loan eased to 3.20 percent from 3.24 percent. Rates have been falling since September when the Federal Reserve surprised investors by continuing to buy $85 billion a month in bonds. The purchases are intended to keep longterm interest rates low. Rates had spiked over the summer when the Fed indicated it might reduce those purchases later this year. But hiring has slowed since then. Many now expect the Fed won’t taper until next year. The average on the 30-year loan has now fall-

en about half a percentage point since a hitting two-year high over the summer. The lower rates appear to be sparking a surge in activity by prospective homebuyers and homeowners looking to refinance. Mortgage applications jumped 6.4 percent in the week ended Oct. 25 from the previous week, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association. Applications for purchases rose 2 percent from a week earlier, while refinance applications soared nearly 9 percent. U.S. home prices rose in August from a year earlier at the fastest pace since February 2006, according to the latest Standard & Poor’s/ Case-Shiller 20-city home price index. But the price gains slowed in many cities from July, a sign that the spike in prices over the past year may have peaked.

The color gray has gotten a bad rap. Think about it. Gray day. Gray hair. It’s time to toss out all your dreary images of gray because the sun is shining on this multidimensional color, and it is absolutely HOT in the world of interior design. Pick a shade of gray, from dove to charcoal, and it’s huge right now. Here are some tips for weaving gray into your home. Wash a Wall in Gray If you want a rich, saturated color on your walls that will bring a room alive without competing with artwork and upholstered furnishings, paint your room gray. Forget the myth that gray walls will make a room feel dark and gloomy. I’ve found that when you use gray as a backdrop for a space, every color and texture in the room explodes with energy. Gray lends lots of power without competing with the room’s focal points, like lovely artwork or knockout furnishings. Give Gray a Go in Your Furnishings Because it comes in so many great shades that pair well with just about any color, is a timeless classic and suits every style of home, gray is an ideal color for upholstered furnishings. When I work with young families at Nell Hill’s, I often recommend gray upholstery fabric on the pieces they use daily so the furniture won’t show the wear and tear of kids and pets. With the rich backdrop of a gray sofa, you can go a million different directions with accent pillows, threading in white, yellow, orange, teal, coral, pink, citron, emerald … you name it! Gray lends itself well to contemporary and transitional style homes, especially when you bring it into the interior landscape through pieces covered in bold geometric patterns. It’s fun to mix modern patterns with upholstered furnishings and trims that pull in revitalized traditional patterns like chevrons and florals. When it comes to wood furnishings, I’m a fan of just about every finish known to man, including

painted wood. You can find gray finishes in dining tables and chairs, side tables and bookcases. Tuck Gray into Your Bed Stitch together bedding elements that feature

gray, yellow and white in a wide range of fabric patterns and textures. Create a Mood with Gray Accents If you’d like just a pop of gray in your interior, try an accent lamp or a

temple jar. Life is less stressful when you pick accent rugs in colors and patterns that camouflage the signs of daily use. What could be a better pick than gray?

Autumn design trends warm up indoor spaces as weather cools The cool days are closing in, so what should we do to make our homes comfy and cozy this autumn? Let’s start with wood-burning stoves. These have been around forever and never go out of style. Wood-burning stoves provide warmth and create an inviting feeling in any home. If you have a real fireplace, open it up and use it. If not, consider one of many artificial fireplace options; these still offer a warm glow and warm look. Men’s fashions are making a statement in home interiors. Yes, the classic, conservative, wellgroomed look is popular this fall.

It’s a tailored look, more popular than the fluffy, flowery stuff. Shabby chic has been popular for a long time and needs an update. The new term is “upcycled.” It means the vintage look but with a new lease on life. To upcycle, consider taking an old piece of furniture and repainting it a bold color. Or think about reupholstering old chairs in a splashy material. Metals are popular this fall. Gold tones have a warm feeling while silver comes across as sleek and sophisticated. Knickknacks, candlesticks, table bases and picture frames all are available in metal. If you like gold, pair it with black and tan in upholstery. A

lamp with a gold base looks great coupled with a black shade. If you like silver, pair it with black and white. Change that gold lamp base to silver and keep the black shade; again, you have a great look. Gold picture frames with black matting or silver picture frames with black matting can be added to the accessory list. Either combination enhances a stylish, well-designed room. In addition to metal, stone, wood, crystals and gems are popular this fall. Stone floors or wood floors are great year-round. The crystals and the gems fit right in with or without the metal accessories. The look is earthy and enticing.

Sally responded that the home felt a little creepy to her. Sally had always been a quiet and sensitive child. Sarah consoled her daughter and had her excited about the potential soon. The next day, Sarah and Ed wrote an offer and before too long they were moving into the home. It was perfect timing – school was starting back up in a few days. With a new home for their new family Sarah and Ed felt like they were off to a great start. That evening, however, Sally and Ethan (the second oldest boy) came home with pale faces and a disturbing story. Seems like five years prior a family fell apart in the home. The father murdered the four children and their mother. He was serving life in prison. Sally had heard the ghost of the mother and children were still there. They had built the home as their dream

home and wanted to stay. Sarah and Ed downplayed the information to the children and told Jeremy (the oldest boy) to stop any plans for pranks to further scare the younger children. Sarah and Ed called Tammy that evening and asked to meet with her the next day. Turns out; that murder did, in fact happen in the home. The father was in prison for life. Tammy admitted hearing rumors about the ghosts, but had never witnessed anything herself and she had been in the home several times for showings – mostly to curious people. Sarah and Ed asked why Tammy did not tell them of this information — it could have impacted their decision to purchase the home! At the very least they could have made an educated decision on it. Tammy replied she did not have a duty to disclose anything that is not a material defect on

the property and she had never heard Sarah or Ed mention any thing similar to this that would be a deal breaker for them. So, she was acting within the scope of her requirements. While the above story is false, the portion that covers Tammy’s duty to disclose is true. Tammy was under no legal obligation to tell her clients of the happenings in the home for two reasons: A murder and suspicions of ghostly activity are not material defects to the property. According to the Ohio Division of Real Estate and the Ohio Revised Code an agent is only obligated to disclose material defects to the property. Tammy was not aware of any issues, problems or deal breakers that a property such as this would present to her clients. Had she been made aware through any discussions or conversations that they buyers were opposed to

purchasing a stigmatized home such as this one she would have had to disclose any knowledge she had. I do not personally ask clients up-front if they are opposed to living in a home where something bad happened or a suspected ghost lives in. Nor do I know the history of every home I show to that degree. However, my personal thought is this; if I know — I’m going

to disclose! If you have a particular aversion to ghoulish and ghostly happenings — be up front with your realtor. For more information on Ghostly Tours in the Miami Valley you can contact your Troy or local chamber or the local historical society.

ing drop in price due to what had happened in the home. Tammy knew Sarah and Ed were new to the area, but they seemed like very progressive and open-minded people. In all her conversations with Sarah and Ed she had never heard them mention any deal-breaker similar to the happenings in this home that would be of concern. Sarah and Ed loved the home so much they took the children back the following evening and went out to the local bakery to talk about it as a family. The oldest boys could see nothing but awesomeness and potential everywhere. The youngest girls didn’t really have a major opinion – they were just happy to be having their own space after sharing a room for the past six months; something they were not used to or fond of doing. Sally, the oldest daughter, however was quiet. Sarah noticed and inquired why.

Midcentury home, renovated, comes back from the ’50s When Ed Charbonneau and Erica Berven decided to buy their first home, they had a vision in mind: Atomic Ranch, as in the Space Age-era houses that have become the height of retro chic to a new generation of homeowners. “I had a subscription to Atomic Ranch magazine,” said Berven, who also remembers admiring the interiors on TV’s “The Jetsons” and “The Brady Bunch” and thinking, “That’s the coolest thing ever.” The couple found their own Atomic Ranch-style house in St. Louis Park, a Minneapolis suburb. Built in 1954, the house had some distinctive original features, including a butterfly roof with dramatic eaves and a tapering stone fireplace in the living room. But the house also retained some not-sodesirable relics from the ’50s, including a tiny

kitchen. After living in the house for several years, the couple decided it was time to make some major improvements. Fortunately, they had an expert in the family: Charbonneau’s uncle is architect Daryl Hansen. Charbonneau, a muralist and instructor at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, had collaborated with his uncle on art projects in the past and had commissioned one of Hansen’s distinctive custom rugs, in pastel hues inspired by ’50s tiles Berven had collected. Hansen appreciated the vintage home’s quality construction and ’50s aesthetic. “I’m more of a modernist, and that was the beginning of modernism and open floor plans,” he said. The couple had a large lot, with plenty of space for a big rear addition, but decided against it.

“I didn’t want a gigantic kitchen,” Berven said. “I wanted to work within the existing footprint.” Fortunately, ranchstyle houses lend themselves to creative reworking of space because their floor plans are more free-flowing, less compartmentalized than houses from earlier decades, said Hansen. He developed three different schemes for remodeling the house. “I didn’t know how far they wanted to go,” he said. “They picked the most open of the three,” which included removing two interior walls. “That changed the relationship of everything.” SHNS Photos Hansen decided to Ed Chjarbonneau and Erica Berven in the Tiki-themed porch in their home. “bring the dining area out into the living vintage collectibles.

Candy shop specializes in vintage confections COLUMBUS (AP) — Her candy shop isn’t the modern sort: Mary Rodgers sells no Hershey bars, no 3 Musketeers. “But you can get a Zagnut or a Clark,” said Rodgers, who for the past three years has managed Moxie’s, a store in the Clintonville neighborhood that emphasizes throwback — They still make those? — sweets. Also part of her stash: Sky Bars, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Bonomo Turkish Taffy and Black Cow and Slo Poke caramels — with the last two available only since 2011 after a 25-year hiatus. Not to be forgotten are candy cigarettes (known as politically correct “candy sticks”). Rodgers, a retired strategic planner, conceived the shop at 3468 N. High St. in the mold of her bygone afterschool Columbus haunts, including Jimmie’s Drugs and Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour. “If they’re making it,” said Rodgers, 52, “we will find it.” Such a pursuit can prove sticky, though. The shuttering of mom-and-pop stores and regional confectioners — as well as advances in shipping and refrigeration — has soured the independent American candy landscape.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Saint Louis University junior Zach Grummer-Strawn has never seen “The Exorcist,” the 1973 horror film considered one of the finest examples of unadulterated cinematic terror. He’s only vaguely familiar with the monthlong 1949 demon-purging ritual at his school on which the film and William Peter Blatty’s 1971 novel were based. But just in time for Halloween, Jesuit scholars have joined a whole new generation of horror buffs in St. Louis to recount the supernatural incident. The university hosted a panel discussion Tuesday on the exorcism, which involved the treatment of an unidentified suburban Washington, D.C., boy. About 500 people crammed into Pius XII Library, with some spilling into the library aisles, leaning against pillars or sitting on desks. “I’d like to believe it’s the real thing,” said GrummerStrawn, a theology and sociology student from Atlanta. “But you just can’t know. That’s part of why we’re here. It’s the pursuit of truth. And it’s such a great story.” The university scholars and guest speaker Thomas Allen, author of a 1993 account of the events at the school’s former Alexian Brothers Hospital, emphasized that definitive proof that the boy known only as “Robbie” was possessed by malevolent spirits is unattainable. Maybe he instead suffered from mental illness or sexual abuse — or fabricated the entire experience. Like most of religion’s basic tenets, it ultimately comes down to faith.

Exorcism of 1949 still fascinates St. Louis

“If the devil can convince us he does not exist, then half the battle is won,” said the Rev. Paul Stark, vice president for mission and ministry at the 195-year-old Catholic school. He opened the discussion with a prayer from the church’s exorcism handbook, imploring God to “fill your servants with courage to fight that reprobate dragon.” Some of the non-students in the audience spoke of personal connections to an episode that has enthralled generations of St. Louis residents. One man described living near the suburban St. Louis home where the 13-year-old boy arrived in the winter of 1949 (his Lutheran mother was a St. Louis native who married a Catholic). Another said she was a distant cousin of Father William Bowdern, who led the exorcism ritual after consulting with the archbishop of St. Louis but remained publicly silent about his experiences — though he did tell Allen it was “the real thing.” Bowdern died in 1983. Bowdern was assisted by the Rev. Walter Halloran, who unlike his colleague spoke openly with Allen and expressed his skepticism about potential paranormal events before his death a decade ago. “He talked more about the boy, and how much he suffered, and less about the rite,” Allen said. “Here was a scared, confused boy caught up in something he didn’t understand. “He told me, ‘I simply don’t know,’ and that is where I leave it,” the author added. “I just don’t know.” Allen zealously protects the anonymity of “Robbie,” despite others’ efforts to track him down to this day.
