Hobart Arena to host Div. III wrestling tourney Event expected to attract 2,800 spectators to watch the 225 district wrestlers Melanie Yingst

Mind-bending performers coming

TROY —For one weekend in February, Hobart Arena’s ice will be replaced by the region’s top high school wrestlers in the area. On Wednesday, Troy Recreation board announced Hobart Arena will host the Division III Southwest district high school wrestling tournament next February. The Troy Recreation board met on Wednesday with Bob Huelsman, treasurer of the Southwest District Athletic

Edison will bring two masters of illusions and mind tricks to campus at 7 p.m. Saturday for an evening of performances that will entertain and astound audiences of all ages. See, Page 5

Board, to discuss the financial agreement between the organization and Hobart Arena about the finances to host the Division III high school wrestling tournament Feb. 21-22. The Southwest District Athletic Board will pay Hobart Arena $3,500 for the twoday event, plus $875 to hold the arena open on the following Sunday, Feb. 23, in case of inclement weather. The organization also will pay for Hobart Arena staff and security once staff to fill those positions are available. The Troy Recreation Board passed a motion to waive the

$500 set-up fee for the organization due to the number of spectators and the positive local economic impact from the many teams and families who will stay in area hotels and dine at local restaurants as part of its firstyear agreement. Recreation board secretary Tom Dunn asked how far teams travel to the area for the district tournament. According to Huelsman, the Division III district wrestling meet typically averages 2,800 spectators from schools as far north as Toledo and as far south as Cincinnati. Attendance varies during the tournament as

spectators often come to watch specific matches throughout the day. The wrestling district tournament also averages 225 wrestlers from a varying number of schools each year in Division III. Many regional teams will need to stay at local hotels, thus a positive financial boost to the local economy, Huelsman said. Huelsman said Hobart Arena is an attractive venue to host wrestling competitions due to the large surface area that could hold up to eight wrestling match rings. See WRESTLING | 2

All three selected Elizabeth Township Trustees — Ronald Swallow, Greg Dilts and William Sutherly — agreed the race was a little too close for comfort Tuesday. That may be the case, but at the end of the day the three are just happy to be in a position to serve the people of Elizabeth Township. When the unofficial results were finally released at about 10:30 p.m Tuesday the incumbent Swallow had locked up the unexpired term of retired trustee Dave Wagner to serve as trustee through Dec. 31, 2015, with 242 votes. He defeated Jim Miller, who See TRUSTEE | 2

ended up with 209 votes. “It was a close race,” Swallow said. “I’m just grateful that I won and can continue to serve the people. I’ve been a trustee for 20 years, and we’ve done a lot of changes in our township. I think we’re just going to continue to monitor the services that we have in place and keep Elizabeth Township a great place to live.” Dilts, also an incumbent, will retain his seat as trustee after receiving 245 votes. Sutherly totaled 259 votes. The pair beat John Ryman (211 votes) and J. Mike Jess (126). “I’m looking forward to working with the other trustees, and continue to do what I’m doing,” Dilts said. “I will continue to serve the people and do what’s best for the township.” Sutherly agreed. “I’m looking forward to keeping the rural landscape of Elizabeth Township,” Sutherly said. “There was a question from some of the candidates about whether or not we could continue the farmland center, maintain the roads, the cemetery, and if we could do all of that without putting a tax on Elizabeth Township. “Some said it couldn’t be done, but it has been done in the past and it can continue to be done.”

Dems, GOP, tea party dig in after NJ, VA elections WASHINGTON (AP) — As partisanship renders Washington largely dysfunctional, voters in two states signaled this week that they want consensus-building even when there’s divided government. Even so, heading into a 2014 midterm election year, Tuesday’s results in New Jersey and Virginia carry plenty of warning signs for both parties that despite the voter angst, hyper-partisanship still is likely to rule, especially on debates over the budget and health care. In reliably Democratic New Jersey, Republican Gov. Chris Christie easily won a second term with support from voters who aligned with President Barack Obama last November. Those same voters kept Democrats in charge of the New Jersey Legislature, even as they gave the popular governor a boost as he considers running for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. In Virginia, one of the nation’s most competitive states, longtime Democratic Party power broker Terry McAuliffe defeated Republican Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli by a narrow margin for governor, but Republicans retained control of the House of Delegates. The state Senate remains up for grabs in a coming special election. McAuliffe and Christie each embraced the notion of bipartisanship in their victory. But exit polls and immediate reactions from national party players — including tea party activists — suggest that Republicans and Democrats are likely to remain entrenched in their partisan positions. During the campaign, McAuliffe hammered Cuccinelli as a tea party conservative, hardliner on social issues like abortion and same-sex marriage and cheerleader for the national Republicans whose opposi-

tion to the health care law helped trigger the partial government shutdown in October. Cuccinelli saddled McAuliffe with the clumsy implementation of Obama’s signature law. Both strategies resonated, but Democrats say McAuliffe’s victory proves which mattered more and portends a Democratic advantage in Senate and governors’ races next year. “Ken Cuccinelli made this race a referendum on Obamacare,” said Mo Elleithee, a Democratic National Committee spokesman. Democrats “made it a referendum on the shutdown and extremism. We won.” Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin, chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, noted several states where incumbent Republicans were elected in the 2010 tea party wave, including Florida, Ohio, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, all states Obama won twice. “They’re stuck with a bunch of tea party governors who are Ken Cuccinelli’s clone,” Shumlin said. Virginia exit polls found that 42 percent of voters oppose the tea party movement, while just 28 percent said they support it. But on the question of blame for the shutdown, the difference was essentially the same as McAuliffe’s margin of victory: 48 percent blamed Republicans in Congress, with 88 percent of those people voting for McAuliffe; 45 percent blamed Obama, with 87 percent of them opting for Cuccinelli. At the Democrats’ national Senate campaign office, spokesman Matt Canter noted that in competitive GOP Senate primaries around the country, all candidates have embraced the shutdown. Meanwhile, congressional Republicans running for the Senate without tough primary opposition — Tom Cotton in Arkansas and Shelley Moore Capito in West Virginia — voted for the temporary fix. “They know it’s awful politics for them,” Canter said.

Residents OK street levy Joyell Nevins Record Herald Editor

WEST MILTON — It was a close race, but West Milton voters ultimately said “yes” to a replacement street levy Tuesday night. The new levy brings an increase in taxes, but also gives the street department the funds to complete necessary projects. “The (residents) will see some improvements that would have been impossible otherwise,” Streets Superintendent Ben Herron said. The levy passed with 392 votes or 57 percent for, and 300 or 43 percent against. Overall, 692 votes were cast in the village ballot. West Milton passed its original street levy in 1984. The levy has continued to be renewed by voters on a 5-year basis since then, with the current levy ending in 2014. However, as materials and other expenses rose, the funds collected from the levy stayed at 1984 numbers. On this fall ballot, the village sought a replacement levy that starts in 2015. While the levy will stay at 3-mils, it will be based off of today’s property values instead of 1984’s market. This means a jump from $39.84 for

a $100,000 homeowner to $91.88 annually for the same homeowner. With the levy passage, city staff is ready to jump into the next set of tasks. “We’re ready to roll up our sleeves and get to work on the next project,” Municipal Manager Matt Kline said. He said staff will “look hard” at Market Street, which has not had any work done since its annexation into the village. “The whole street’s in bad shape,” Kline said. “It’s put together with baling wire and bubble gum (at this point), and people on that street deserve work done on it.” Herron added another project they will be working on is updating the storm sewer collection system. “They’re expensive repairs, but without them the town would basically collapse,” he said, describing the flooding that happens when the system breaks down. Herron said he is pleased that the community showed its trust by passing the levy and that he and his staff will honor that. “I guarantee that we won’t disappoint,” he said. “We spend the money like it’s coming out of our own wallet.”

Wrestling From page 1 The Division III district tournament will have four wrestling rings during the competition in February. Huelsman said last year’s competition was

held at Fairmont High School’s Trent Arena. He said there has been a change in the athletic director position at the school and the new person said the school only

wants to host the Division I wrestling district tournament next year. Huelsman said Division III district wrestling tournament historically draws more spectators

than the other two higher divisions. Many new high school gyms are no longer big enough to host wrestling tournaments and college arenas are often too expensive to move tournaments to those sites.

Huelsman said Hobart Arena fits the Division III needs for the district wrestling tournament, yet Huelsman asked the board if the price of the venue could be tweaked to possibly encourage Divisions I and II to pos-

sibly move their tournament to the arena in the future. Huelsman cited varying high school fees ranging from $500-$1,500 for the weekend tournament. Troy Recreation Board director Ken Siler said the arena’s fees were set by the board and it was the board’s decision to discuss the financial agreement. Huelsman also said the size of the arena was a positive for the organization for the tournament and a possible expansion for the other divisions for district wrestling meets. Board president Marty Hobart said he personally was excited to host the event next February. A discussion among Hobart, Dunn and board member Brock Heath resulted in waiving the $500 set-up fee for the first year of hosting the tournament because the arena is a “community venue” and the potential of hosting the tournament in the future for the other larger divisions. Heath said the local economy will benefit from the tournament, but also said “we’re not going to give the farm away” in waiving the $500 set-up fee for the tournament. Set-up includes laying the protective floor decking and removing the glass panels from the arena. The organization will provide the wrestling mats, time clocks and hospitality area for the tournament, Huelsman said. The board reviewed the net loss of public skating sessions for the February weekend, which is around $2,000 for a typical weekend in February, according to Ken Siler. “The economic impact will be a positive for the community, but our goal is to keep as minimum of a loss as possible as we can,” Heath said. In other news, Heath will attend his last meeting in December as a recreation board member. Heath will step down from the position due to being elected as a city of Troy councilman. Mayor Michael Beamish will make an appointment to fill Heath’s vacancy beginning on Jan. 1.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Columbus Dispatch Allegations that the U.S. National Security Agency spied on German leader Angela Merkel, the latest revelation in the ongoing Edward Snowden saga, has grabbed headlines and prompted angry denunciations in the press. The most troublesome disclosure over the past several months, though, remains the fact that the NSA has been spying on millions of Americans without just cause — a violation of privacy and liberty. Certainly, reports that the United States has been spying on leaders of closely allied nations raises a number of concerns. In a critical editorial, The New York Times referred to such spying undermining “the trust of allies and their willingness to share the kind of confidential information needed to thwart terrorism and other threats.” It also poses a general risk to the reputation of the United States and makes President Barack Obama — who either didn’t know about the spying or who signed off on the years-long surveillance, depending on whom one believes — look incompetent, out of the loop, or both. The larger issue, though, remains the NSA’s overreach into the lives of average citizens…. Calls from both sides of the aisle to rein in the NSA have gathered steam. On Tuesday, a bill backed by Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis. and one of the authors of the original Patriot Act, and Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., was introduced, proposing to put a stop to the bulk collection of communications data from Americans by the NSA. Warren Tribune Chronicle The overwhelming majority of public school teachers in Ohio are good men and women who are dedicated to educating children. But as with any profession, there are a few bad apples. Finding them and doing something about them — with emphasis on ensuring misdeeds do not harm children — is the mission of the state education department’s Office of Professional Conduct. During the past few years, the agency’s workload has increased dramatically. During 2005, the office handled 4,770 referrals in cases of possible misconduct by public school personnel. But last year, the number was 8,068. Although the 2012 total was down slightly from 2011, the unmistakable trend has been upward. That should concern Buckeye State residents. Teacher misconduct can involve a variety of actions, ranging from mishandling money on up to harming children. Most cases referred to the state do not involve harm to students. State officials say the higher numbers are for a variety of reasons and do not necessarily reflect increased misbehavior by educators. For example, changes in background check rules and in the number of criminal offenses, even those outside school, requiring action against teachers were cited…. In some ways, it appears getting away with misconduct is much more difficult for an educator in Ohio. That is a good thing. Clearly, however, officials at both the local and state levels have some work to do to make the system less susceptible to mistakes.

Another football season full of memories passes Troy Troy I have grown another year older. I know this because another high school football season has passed. Since I was a junior in high school, I have always marked the passage of time based on high school football seasons. I have always known where I was in my life based upon what type of season the Trojans were having. Every single milestone in my life has been wrapped around the Troy High School football team’s season. My senior year in high school? That would be 1991, when the Trojans went 8-2, suffering devastating back-to-back losses to Northmont and Piqua. My freshman year in college? That would be 1992, the year Troy played Piqua in front of 12,000 people at Troy Memorial Stadium, then turned around a few weeks later and played the Indians again in the Division I regional finals. The year I graduated college? I graduated in 1996 — the magical 100th year of Troy High School football, when the Trojans finished atop the Division I Associated Press poll. The year I met my wife? How could I possibly forget that magical year in 1998 when Ryan Brewer set

the state rushing record and won Mr. means to me and would never stand Football Ohio honors? (Note: My in the way of chasing those Friday wife absolutely loves it when I refer night lights in August, September, to 1998 as “Ryan Brewer’s senior October and November.

They’ll never again feel that invincibility that can only come with running out onto the field with thousands of fans in the stands cheering for them. That’s really the cruel trick high school football can play. It gives teenage boys the chance to be heroes — but it only lasts for a brief moment in time. While fans are left with the chance to look forward to what the next season may bring, the players themselves are left with little more than memories. So I will spend some time mourning for the local high school football players’ whose seasons — and, in most cases, careers — have come to an end. But I can only do so for so long. Because in a few short months, it will be August again, and a time to make a whole new set of memories. Troy’s very own David Fong appears on Thursdays in the Troy Daily News

Ohio victim: Ariel Castro took ‘coward’s way out’ CLEVELAND (AP) — The first of three women who were kidnapped and held for a decade in a Cleveland home described kidnapper Ariel Castro as cowardly when he died in prison in what was ruled a suicide. “He took a coward’s way out,” Michelle Knight said in a taped interview Wednesday on the “Dr Phil” show. It was the second part of an interview in which Knight spoke of being beaten, chained and sexually and emotionally abused from the time she was kidnapped in 2002 until she and the other two women

escaped this year. Knight was kidnapped when she was about 20, and said Castro told her repeatedly that he could abuse her because nobody would care. Knight, who cried at times during the interview, also spoke about having five miscarriages in captivity. She says Castro punched and kicked her in the stomach. She also described her reaction upon realizing she was finally free. “I wanted to kiss the ground that I was walking on and thank God for letting me get out of that hell hole,” she told the TV host. Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina

DeJesus escaped from Castro’s house May 6 when Berry pushed out a door and called for help. Knight has been the most public since, including a visit to Castro’s neighborhood before his house was demolished. Castro, 53, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison. A month into his sentence, he was found dead in his cell. His hanging death was ruled a suicide, but a prison report indicated he may have died accidentally while choking himself for a sexual thrill.

U.S. trashes, sells its unwanted gear in Afghanistan KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) — The withdrawing U.S. military is destroying most of the equipment it is leaving behind in Afghanistan after 13 years of war, selling the scrap for millions of dollars to those willing to buy it. The policy stands in stark contrast to the Americans’ withdrawal from Iraq, when they donated or sold stillusable items worth about $100 million. The equipment is being trashed, U.S. officials say, because of fears that anything left behind in Afghanistan could fall into the hands of insurgents and used to make bombs. Leaving it behind also saves the U.S. billions of dollars in transportation costs. Afghans are angry at the policy, arguing that even furniture and appliances that could improve their lives is being turned into useless junk. “They use everything while they are here, and then they give it to us after breaking it,” said Mohammed Qasim, a junk dealer in the volatile southern province of Kandahar. He gestured toward the large yellow frame of a gutted generator, saying it would have been more useful in somebody’s home, given the lack of electricity in the area. The twisted mounds of metal, steel and industrial rubber scattered over a

vast field had once been armored vehicles, trucks and huge blast walls that protected troops from suicide bombers. Giant black treads were pulled from tanks. Even air conditioners, exercise machines and office equipment were crushed and stuffed into multicolored shipping containers piled on top of each other in the junkyard. In the last year, the U.S. has turned equipment and vehicles into 387 million pounds (176 million kilograms) of scrap that it sold to Afghans for $46.5 million, according to Mimi Schirmacher, a spokeswoman for the military’s Defense Logistics Agency in Virginia. The scrapped material was too worn out to repair or not worth the expense of carrying it back to the U.S., officials said. Not everything in Afghanistan was destroyed. Coalition forces have handed over $71 million in equipment intact to the Afghans, said Col. Jane Crichton, a public affairs officer for U.S. forces in Afghanistan. She said $64 million of that came from the U.S. “We work closely with the Afghan National Security Forces to determine what equipment they need, if it is in good condition, and ensure they are capable of maintaining it,” Crichton

MetLife Auto & Home

said in an email. Spokesmen for President Hamid Karzai said the government has “repeatedly” asked U.S. officials to neither destroy nor remove its military equipment from Afghanistan when its combat troops leave. “We oppose the destruction of any of the equipment and hardware that can be of use by the Afghan security forces,” deputy presidential spokesman Fayeq Wahedi told The Associated Press in an email. Between September 2012 and the end of 2014, when most U.S. troops will have left, the Americans will move an estimated 50,000 vehicles — tens of thousands of them hardened to make them resistant to mines. They will also ship an estimated 100,000 metal containers — each about 20 feet long. Placed end-to-end, the containers would stretch nearly 400 miles (600 kilometers). The military faced a similar logistics dilemma when it pulled out of Iraq in 2011, but it left most of the equipment with the government, including water tanks, generators, furniture and armored vehicles. Nearly $100 million in equipment was donated or sold to the Iraqis as of 2010, military officials said at the time.



WEST MILTON — West Milton Village Council will get a new face come January — Anthony Miller. He beat out Donald Edmunds in Miller Tuesday’s election, with Susan Willis retaining her spot on council. Miller received 418, or about 37.3 percent of the votes; Edmunds got 268 or about 23.9 percent; and Willis received 433 votes, or about 38.6 Willis percent. Miller is a longtime West Milton resident with a wife and two young daughters. His parents moved here when he was 12, and aside from college, he hasn’t lived anywhere else. “I’m pretty excited to work with everyone,” Miller said. “I’m thankful to the residents that they’re willing to back me and let me represent them.” Willis is a receptionist at Eaton Compressor, a West Milton resident for more than two decades and has a son in the Marine Corps. She has been on council for

eight years and said she will stay as long as the voters want. “I will stay on as long as the residents ask me to stay on,” she said. “I was very touched (by Tuesday’s results). I can’t thank the voters enough.” Willis is looking forward to continuing her work on the Hometown Parade committe and the Parks Board. And with the passage of the replacement street levy the first time through, Willis is beaming with pride in her community. “I’m quite impressed with our town,” she said. “It shows that the town cares.” 40138637

Try these delicious dinner rolls It’s Wednesday evening and it has really warmed up. Temperature is in the ’60s. I am finally having my garage sale on Friday and Saturday. Every time I wanted to have it all summer something else more important came up. Daughter Susan wrote the column for me today while I went to a quilting. I was surprised and relieved that I didn’t have to squeeze that in yet. I would also like to mention that I had a visit from cousin Fern and her daughter Tricia recently. Was nice visiting with them. Dear Readers Hi, how are you all doing? This is Susan. Mom is pretty busy this week so I decided to surprise her and write the column for her. She is a great mother! This week has pretty much been spent getting ready for a garage sale. I was sorting through our books to see which

ones we want to sell. I kept all the books that had facts about horses. I love reading those and learning new things about horses. My dream is to one day write a book. I have all kinds of short stories I have written. My favorite authors are Karen Kingsbury and Linda Byler. I just started reading Linda Byler’s books and I can the she is an Amish author. Other books written by non-Amish

authors just don’t get all the facts of Amish life right. Sunday my boyfriend Mose’s parents had church services at their house. They live 21 miles from here so I went to their house Saturday night. Brother Benjamin and sister Loretta went with me. Benjamin is friends with Mose’s brother Freeman and Loretta with his sister Linda. Mose and I went over to his sister Hannah’s house on Saturday night. They have 2 little boys and an eight month old girl. She is such a sweetie! Dad and Joseph went hunting tonight. One of the calves decided to slip out of the calf pen. We had quite a chase to get it back in. Elizabeth, Verena, Benjamin, Kevin, mom and I were all trying to round it back into the pen. I imagine we looked kind of funny as that calf seemed to slip between two of us every time. We made sure Benjamin wired the cattle

panel shut where it squeezed out. Little Prancer is growing fast. He is a cutie. He is getting fat though so I try to exercise him. I love that little pony! I have taught him some tricks but it takes a lot of patience. We are glad to have Prancer’smother Minnie back here for keeps. Mose has been spending a lot of time hunting. He wants me to go deer hunting with him one day. I told him I’ll go if I can take a book along to read, he said if I do I have to turn the pages really quietly. I like giving him a hard time. Last year when I went hunting with him my feet were so cold so he gave me some heat packs to put in my boots. Those helped a lot. We plan to bake some bread, rolls, etc. to sell at the garage sale. Tomorrow will be a busy day doing that and organizing everything. We also need to do laundry.

Sunday Mose and I plan to go to another church district as his friend Chris will start following instructions for baptism. Dinner Rolls 1 1/2 cups milk 4 teaspoons yeast 1/4 cup butter 1/2 cup warm water 2 eggs, beaten 7 cups flour 1/2 up sugar 1 teaspoon salt Scald milk with butter in it. Beat eggs, add sugar and salt. Pour hot milk over egg mixture and cool toluke warm. Dissolve yeast in warm water, add to milk. Stir in flour to make a soft dough. Let rise 1 hour. Punch down, let rise 1 hour and shape into buns. Let rise until light. Bake in 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until brown.

Thanksgiving: When to save, where to splurge AP — Thanksgiving is the holiday of sanctioned indulgence, but that doesn’t mean the meal has to break the bank. Strategic splurging can keep your budget — and your time — under control. “The elements of Thanksgiving in general are relatively inexpensive,” says Melissa D’Arabian, cookbook author and host of the web series “The Picky Eaters Project.” Items like potatoes, bread for stuffing, and even the turkey are pennies per pound. “But even inexpensive things can become expensive if you’re making it for a lot of people and if you don’t shop well.” Knowing which items to go big on depends on your menu, your skills and your family and friends. “The trick to this is know your audience,” says Rick Rodgers, author of numerous Thanksgiving cookbooks, including “Thanksgiving 101.” ”If you have foodie friends who really enjoy discussing a meal, then maybe you do want the $100 organic turkey. It’s the same thing with the wine. If people are going to notice that you have a $50 pinot noir, go for it. But if they are average Joes, then cook for them, not for you.” Here’s a little more guidance from the experts. ___ TURKEY


Splurge on preparation, save on the bird. Many people have ethical and environmental reasons for buying a heritage, free range or other high-end bird. But if your only consideration is taste, many experts say even the frozen supermarket bird will suffice if you brine it and brown it. “The ecologist in me says buy a heritage breed turkey,” says Sarah Copeland, food director for Real Simple magazine. “But if you treat your turkey right, even a Butterball can be delicious.” ___ STUFFING Splurge on the produce, save on the bread. Stuffing was meant to cheap. Its job is simply to soak up all the lovely juices from your bird. An ordinary loaf of white bread or baguette will do this just fine — Rodgers even likes the pre-packaged bread cubes — but load up on fresh herbs, crisp celery and flavorful extras like excellent mushrooms. “If you can get higher-end mushrooms, that’s going to elevate your stuffing into something really special,” D’Arabian says. A bit of minced shallot will add sweetness and depth. “Having high-end stuffing versus run-of-the-mill is worth a few extra bucks. In a lot of people’s hearts, the stuffing is the star of the show, so that’s a good place to splurge.”

The Elizabeth Township Zoning Commission will meet on Monday, November 18, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in Board Room 308 at the Elizabeth Township Community Center which is located at 5760 E. Walnut Grove Road, Troy, Ohio. This meeting is to discuss several issues to ascertain if they warrant possible changes in Elizabeth Township Zoning Resolutions.

Jobs report likely bleak WASHINGTON (AP) — The jobs report for October due out Friday may be bleak. It might even be scary. The unemployment rate could jump by the most in three years. Hiring may slow from an already weak pace. Don’t panic. The ugly figures will reflect the government’s partial shutdown, which coincided with 16 days in October. The trends for the job market will likely reverse themselves in coming months. “It’s going to be a very messy report, and I don’t think we think should take it at face value,” said Jennifer Lee, an economist at BMO Capital Markets. Economists warn that the unemployment rate could surge as high as 7.5 percent from 7.2 percent in September. That would be the steepest one-month rise since 2010. The number of jobs added in October could slow to roughly 120,000 from the 148,000 added in September. That isn’t healthy. In the first nine months of this year, the average job gain was 180,000. The shutdown will be mostly to blame. But its effect on the data won’t be easy to tease out. Economists have all but thrown up their hands trying to forecast Friday’s figures or to suggest what they might mean. However the numbers turn out, the distortions mean the monthly jobs data will be less useful in gauging the economy’s health than they normally are.

“We have much less confidence in these numbers than usual,” economists at Bank of America Merrill Lynch wrote in a note for clients. Why the confusion? Consider how the jobs report is compiled: It’s derived from two separate surveys. Each survey will be affected differently by the shutdown. One is a household survey. Government workers ask adults in a household whether they have a job. Those who don’t but are looking for one are counted as unemployed. That’s how the unemployment rate is calculated. The other is a payroll survey. The government asks mostly large companies and government agencies how many of their employees worked or received pay, typically during the second week of the month. This survey produces the number of jobs gained or lost. Suppose you’re a federal worker who was furloughed by the shutdown. The payroll survey would consider you employed. But the household survey would count you as unemployed. Why the disparity? Because furloughed federal employees received back pay for the time they didn’t work. So for the purposes of the payroll survey, they were employed. The same is likely true for government contractors who were temporarily laid off. Many were probably paid for at least part of the time covered by the payroll survey. So the payroll survey will consider them employed.

Knox’s knife DNA casts doubt on murder weapon FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — U.S. student Amanda Knox’s defense got a boost on Wednesday when a new DNA test on a kitchen knife failed to conclusively prove that it was the murder weapon used to kill her British roommate. An expert witness testified that the minuscule DNA trace on the knife handle near the blade showed “considerable affinity” with Knox’s own DNA. That confirmed what was already known from two previous trials: that Knox’s DNA was on the knife handle, identified through another trace. No DNA belonging to the slain British student, Meredith Kercher, was identified. Previous

genetic evidence on the blade linked to Kercher had been contested at earlier stages. Outside the court, Knox defense lawyer Carlo Dalla Vedova told The Associated Press that the testimony confirms his contention that the knife was used by Knox solely for preparing food. “The report confirms that this is a kitchen knife. It is not a murder weapon,” Dalla Vedova said. Luca Maori, a defense lawyer for Knox’s codefendant Raffaele Sollecito, said the trace’s very existence also indicated the knife had not been washed. “It is something very important,” he said. “It is absurd to use it for a murder and put it back in the drawer.”

Their time Hall leads Red Devil seniors into history

Josh Brown

Sports Editor

CASSTOWN — When it comes to the potential pitfalls and profits of playing a team twice in the same season, Max Current sees both sides of the coin. “On the one hand, it probably is a little tougher to beat a team the second time, because the team that lost has a little bit of a chip on its shoulder,” the Miami East football coach said. “But on the other hand, the team that won the first game also has a little bit of confidence going in knowing they were able to beat the other team once already. So I’m not really sure which team has the advantage in that situation.” Friday night, Current and the Vikings will find out exactly who has the advantage as his team takes on Cross County Conference foe TriCounty North in a Division VI, Region 22 playoff game. Miami East — the No. 1 seed

in the region — will play host to TC North, the No. 8 seed. The regional quarterfinal game is scheduled to kickoff at 7:30 p.m. at Miami East, the first home playoff game in Viking history. When the two teams met in Week 8, East overcame a 14-0 deficit to win 24-21 in overtime. “Our guys didn’t seem all that shook up by playing North again,” Current said. “I think they understand they are playing a (darn) good football team. North is a very aggressive, highly emotional team. They feed off emotion. We knew we have to go in expecting a war. We have to prepare that way. We are going to be playing a very good team.” Offensively, the Panthers are led by quarterback Austin Hutchins, a first-team AllCCC performer. “Their quarterback is very good,” Current said. “He’s a three-year starter. He can See EAST | 14

to Hall, fellow running back Cameron Johnson and quarterback Ben Hughes — all unproven sophomores. They won the first nine games that season and faced undefeated Springfield Shawnee at home in Week 10 for the CBC Kenton Trail title. They lost that game — the Braves went on to finish as the state runner-up that season — but more than proved themselves. “At the time, it was really crazy,” Hall said. “I was just so excited to even get a chance to play varsity like my dad (Jim Hall) did for Vandalia as a sophomore. And things went really well. “During the season, we didn’t think about it that much. We were just busy preparing from week to week. But when that season was over, I was like ‘Wow.’” The next season, with the weight of expectations on them, the Devils went 8-2 during the regular season, losing close games to Tecumseh and Shawnee and finishing third in the division — but still making the playoffs again. Hall led the team in rushing again with 1,648 yards, third in the CBC, and 25 touchdowns,

TIPP CITY — When Jacob Hall began preseason practice in 2011, he came in with no expectations. “Coming into my sophomore year, I wasn’t even expecting to start at all,” the Tippecanoe senior fullback said. “Once scrimmages started and I started doing well, I was like ‘holy crap. I’m pretty good at this.’ And I ended up having a really good season.” That “good season” by Hall and his sophomore classmates translated into 1,439 yards — tops in the Central Buckeye Conference — and 15 touchdowns, as well as a 9-1 regular season record, a postseason berth and even a home playoff game during a season the Red Devils were expected to be going through a rebuilding phase. They followed that up last season by going 8-2 and qualifying for the playoffs once again, and now this See TIME | 14 year as seniors they stand at 10-0 and earned the No. 1 seed in the Division III, Region 10 playoff standings. Friday night, they will host Kenton Ridge in a regional quarterfinal playoff game — the team’s ninth straight playoff appearance, and the third straight for Hall and company. But for Hall’s class, that run began before even their sophomore year. “It’s been an awesome experience, and it goes back even further than that,” Hall said. “All the way back to third grade in pee wee football. That was the start of all of this. “We all played together back then, and we lost four games in those four years. We stayed together all the way through middle school, and once we got to varsity we were like ‘This is our time. Let’s make this happen. This is what we’ve been playing our whole lives for.’” • Seen It All That first season on varsity in 2011, no one expected Tippecanoe to do anything. That run of consecutive playoff appearances would end, they wouldn’t contend for the Central Buckeye Conference Kenton Trail Division title, Anthony Weber | Troy Daily News file but hey, just wait until next year. Then the team Tippecanoe’s Jacob Hall has been the team’s leading rusher the past three seasons, and he will be dangerous. But Burgbacher gave the reins of the offense scored five touchdowns against Kenton Ridge — which Tipp hosts Friday night — just two weeks ago.

Bengals in control of struggling AFC North The Associated Press

Unbeaten Buckeyes still need help

Heading into their final three games of the season, the fourth-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes go into an off week with almost all of their highest goals still within reach. The thing is, they also need some help. See Page 13

Only one team with a winning record? The Steelers and Ravens bringing up the bottom? What’s up with the AFC North? The NFL’s toughest division is having a tough year all-around. The mainstays are just trying to stay relevant at the midpoint of the season. The Bengals (6-3) are in control of a division that may send only one team to the playoffs for the first time since 2007.

“I’ve been used to seeing Pittsburgh and Baltimore so many years at the top of this division,” Bengals safety Chris Crocker said. “Things have really changed. Those teams have gone through transition and so have we. “We got a lot of young talent and just been playing very well. When we do play well we play very, very well.” The rest of the division? Not so well. Cincinnati has a two-game lead and can pretty much scuttle the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens (3-5) with a victory in

Baltimore on Sunday. The Browns (4-5) are having an encouraging season — encouraging simply because they’re not bringing up the rear — while the Steelers (2-6) have taken over the bottom spot by playing as poorly as any Pittsburgh team in the last 25 years. More things to watch in the AFC North in the second half: MORE THAN ONE? The division has sent 11 teams to the playoffs in the last five years, the most by any division. It’s the only division that has sent at least two

each season, including three in 2011. Cincinnati is in good shape to win its first division title since 2009. Can any of the other teams pull themselves together and make a strong run in the second half to give the North more than one playoff team? Last year, the Bengals were 3-5 at the midpoint and won a wild card with a strong finish, joining the Ravens in the postseason.

OSU may be unbeaten, but still needs help COLUMBUS (AP) — Heading into their final three games of the season, the fourth-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes go into an off week with almost all of their highest goals still within reach. The thing is, they also need some help. No wonder coach Urban Meyer will be watching TV closely. “I’ve been there before a couple of times where some things had to happen right,” Meyer said after Wednesday’s rain-soaked practice. “For us to waste energy on that, that’s not fair to the players we coach. But we’ll certainly be watching.” Meyer plans to watch Thursday night’s games with his son, Nathan. He’ll have plenty to watch, that night and Saturday. Thursday’s games include unbeaten No. 5 Baylor hosting No. 12 Oklahoma for the Big 12

lead, and then No. 2 Oregon at No. 6 Stanford in a Pac12 showdown. Baylor is breathing down the Buckeyes’ neck in the Bowl Championship Series rankings, while Oregon is one of the three teams ahead of the Buckeyes. “I’ll watch them both. Obviously I’ve got a lot of interest,” Meyer said during the Big Ten coaches’ call this week. “Oregon, the style of play that they have — we try to use some of their stuff, as much as we can, because I just think they’re really good. But I’m going to watch Baylor; they’ve got an exciting program too.” Even though Ohio State (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) is rolling through its schedule, the Buckeyes cannot play for the national championship if the status quo holds. At No. 4 in the BCS rankings, they need two of the three teams ahead of them to lose

or drop behind them in order to be among the top two teams when the national championship pairings are determined in early December. On Saturday, another game with huge ramifications for Ohio State takes place when No. 10 LSU plays at top-ranked Alabama. Meyer said he will be measuring his own team by what he sees on the flat screen. “That’s natural. I probably will,” he said. “I’ve done that with our staff. Is soand-so a better coach than we are? Does so-and-so have better players than we do? Why? This is Ohio State, our expectations are the best in the country. “Obviously we’re not there yet or we’d be the best in the country. So we’re fighting that right now.” It’s a good time for Ohio State to take a break. The Buckeyes are a little

bruised and battered and need to take a breather before embarking on their stretch run. When they return to action on Nov. 16 at Illinois, they’ll be in the driver’s seat of the Leaders Division. They close out the regular season by hosting Indiana on Nov. 23 and then playing at rival Michigan at The Big House on Nov. 30. If things work out, they’ll clinch the Leaders Division crown along the way — they’re up by a game on Wisconsin and also own the tiebreaker thanks to their 31-24 win Sept. 28. They would then take on Michigan State — the Legends Division front-runner — in the Big Ten championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium on Dec. 7. Defensive tackle Michael Bennett isn’t losing much sleep over the BCS. “All we can control is how we beat the teams

we’re playing. First it’s Illinois, then so on,” he said. “I don’t stress over the things we don’t control.” The Buckeyes need to fine-tune some things and heal their bodies. Starting tackle Taylor Decker sprained the medial-collateral ligament in his left knee in the 56-0 victory at Purdue last Saturday. He is not practicing this week but it is hoped the week off will allow him to return to the field next week for preparations for Illinois (35, 0-4). Center Corey Linsley said on Wednesday night that Decker may be resting but definitely will be able to play next week. “He wasn’t practicing today; he’s healing up,” Linsley said. “It’s nothing serious. He’s going to be fine. They’re just taking every precaution.” In addition, the Buckeyes are without backup tailback Jordan Hall. He

has what Meyer calls a “chronic knee problem” and could not play against Purdue. He, too, is hopeful of getting back on the field for the big games at the finish. The Buckeyes are riding a 21-game winning streak. The school mark is 22 straight, from 1967 to the last game of the 1969 season, encompassing a national championship in 1968. Clearly, there’s a lot of goals yet to be achieved in the dwindling weeks. Meyer, who stepped aside twice at Florida due to health issues, said he’s going to enjoy this week off, and hopes his team comes back rejuvenated. “The chase is on, man. It’s real,” he said. “For the coaches, it’s the same thing. It’s good for your soul, good for your mind to come back refreshed. You can’t just (work all the time). I’ve tried that. It doesn’t work.”

throw the ball, but he’s also a good runner. He hurt us a few times the first game when he got loose on scrambles and quarterback draws. He likes to throw the ball deep. Our job is going to be to limit their big plays. The first time we played them, we were down 14-0 before we even knew it. But in the second half, we were able to settle down and make a few adjustments.” Miami East will counter with a defense that is giving up just 12.2 points per game. Four East defenders — seniors Franco Villella, Alex Brewer and Robbie Adams, along with sophomore Caden Hellyer — all finished the regular season with 80 or more tackles. Villella also had 10 tackles for loss, five quarterback sacks and an interception. Current describes TC North’s defense as an “attacking” squad that never takes a play off. “Their defense is an attacking defense,” he said. “They can really cause you some problems. They play downhill and they play fast. They’ve got a linebacker, (Colton) Booth, who is just (heck) on wheels. He was all over the place for them the first time we played them.” East’s offense is led by junior quarterback Conner Hellyer, who completed 63 of 103 passes for 1,001 yards with 12 touchdowns and four interceptions. The rest of East’s offense is pure balance and versatility. Three different running backs have rushed for 400 or more yards this season — Colton McKinney (652 yards, seven touchdowns), Alex Brewer (474 yards, eight touchdowns) and Michael Fellers (463 yards, 12 touchdowns). Fellers also is East’s leading receiver with 16 catches for 445 yards and eight touchdowns.

resurgent season has been the play of third-year quarterback Andy Dalton, who has become a playmaker instead of just a caretaker of the offense. The biggest concern is a defense that’s lost All-Pro tackle Geno Atkins and top cornerback Leon Hall for the rest of the season and middle linebacker Rey Maualuga indefinitely because of injuries. “You’ve done enough to have a lead in the division, but to be honest, this isn’t the end,” left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. “So we’re really not where we want to be until 16 games are over and you’re at the top of your division. We still have a lot to go get and a lot to prove.” HOPEFUL BROWNS: They took a big step back toward relevance with a 24-18 win over the Ravens last Sunday in Cleveland, ending Baltimore’s streak of 11 straight wins in the rivalry. Jason Campbell, the 20th starting quarterback since Cleveland returned as an expansion franchise in 1999, threw three touchdown passes as the Browns pulled into second place, a bit of a rush for a fran-

chise that hasn’t won more than five games in any of the past five seasons. “We’ve been a kid brother in this division for a long time,” first-year coach Rob Chudzinski said. “You have to go play and if you want to change that, then you have to go do things to change it.” RAVENS IN TROUBLE: Baltimore expected a transition season with Ray Lewis and Ed Reed among those gone from the Super Bowl championship team. Instead, they’ve gotten knocked around. They’re averaging only 71.6 yards per game on the ground, 29th in the league. The offensive line has struggled, Ray Rice has only 259 yards while playing through a hip injury, and Joe Flacco has been hurried on many of his throws. Baltimore needs a strong finish, beginning with its game Sunday against the Bengals, to reach the playoffs for the sixth season in a row. “As far as we are concerned, as it stands, we’re in a tough spot,” coach John Harbaugh said. CURTAINS FOR THE STEEL CURTAIN: Pittsburgh’s offense

has been sapped by injuries since training camp, making it reliant once again on Ben Roethlisberger’s improvisation. The biggest surprise has been the decline of a defense that ranked No. 1 last season but seems to have gotten old quickly. Pittsburgh gave up a franchiserecord in points during a 55-31 loss to the Patriots last Sunday. The Steelers have reached the Super Bowl twice in the last five seasons. They’re out of playoff contention halfway through this one, with their loyal fans wondering how low they’ll go. Pittsburgh has had only five losing seasons in the past 25 years. They haven’t won fewer than six games in a season since 1988, when they went 5-11 under Chuck Noll. “We’re here to win,” coach Mike Tomlin said. “That’s our charge, that’s our job, that’s our passion. We’re not getting it done consistently to this point. So, that’s irritating and frustrating.” PREDICTED WINNER: Bengals.

Time From page 12 yet they were still disappointed by not living up to their potential. And then this season, the knock on the team for the first three-fourths of the year was that they played against competition that was too far below its own level, and that once they played some of the tougher teams in the area, they’d be exposed.

Yeah … about that. In Week 9, Hall scored five touchdowns and ran for 200-plus yards against 8-1 Kenton Ridge to run the Devils’ winning streak to nine games and set up a battle between unbeatens against 9-0 Shawnee in Week 10, the team that had been their Achilles heel. Hall, who entered the game trailing Shawnee’s

Jalen Nelson for the overall CBC rushing lead, ran for more than 200 yards again and a pair of touchdowns, Tippecanoe cruised to a win, the division title, an undefeated season and a top seed in the playoffs. Oh, and Hall overtook Nelson for the overall CBC rushing lead — he currently has 1,622 yards and has scored a whopping 30

touchdowns. Hall has seen a bit of everything since his sophomore year. “I never really thought about it, but we really have,” Hall said. “Our sophomore year, no one knew who we were, so we kind of proved to ourselves we could do it. Last year was disappointing. We had some injuries in our last couple of

games and didn’t do as well as we’d hoped. “It does make this year a lot sweeter. People look at our schedule and see who we played, but they don’t dive deeper. Their perception about the teams we’ve played is bit off. In reality, we knew what we were facing. So to prove it not just to ourselves, but to the public, it felt good.”

• A Humble Star In the Tippecanoe locker room, there is a sign that says “The key ingredient to stardom is everyone else on the team.” No one personifies that more than Hall and the Red Devils. “Yeah, definitely. There’s 11 guys on the field at all times,” Hall said. “Every one of them has to do their job to execute a play. One player can’t do it all himself. It requires everyone.” Tippecanoe’s experience along the offensive line — including many members of that same senior class — has cleared the way for 3,187 rushing yards this season. The other running backs, as well as a surprisingly adept passing game, take some of the heat off of Hall. And the defense gives Tipp’s offense chance after chance by stuffing the opposition. Hall — who will play his college football at Brown University — may be at the center of it all, but the rest of the ingredients are there, too. “I really just feel like a normal player,” Hall said. “To achieve all the goals I’ve set, that’s been nice. But every one of us has worked so hard for this, going back to the winter, dying in the weight room on our own because there wasn’t any coaches around. We’ve wanted this for a long time.” • Their Time Now, at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Tipp City Park, Hall and company will try to do what the Red Devils have only been able to do one other time during this nine-year playoff stretch. Win a regional quarterfinal game. But they’ll also go into the game knowing they’re not playing Turpin — which they’ve lost to two years straight. They’ll be playing eighth seed Kenton Ridge, a team that the Devils defeated 35-7 two weeks ago on the Cougars’ home field. “We got a great draw,” Hall said. “It’s weird to be watching film of ourselves playing this same team from just two weeks ago.” Overconfidence won’t be a problem, though — the Devils know just how dangerous Kenton Ridge is. “Kenton Ridge can play football,” Hall said. “We know we’ll have to execute. Personally, also, I try to overestimate every opponent. If you think they’re better, you work harder. And when things start going your way, your confidence picks up quick. “We’ve been through the adversity the past two years. This is our chance to be remembered, and we’re ready to take it. This is our time.”
