Operation Cloverleaf donates landscape expertise for 11th year

By Melanie Yingst Staff Writer

Humane Society continuing to serve community Someone has to be the voice of those who cannot speak for themselves. In Miami County, it’s the Miami County Humane Society our furry friends have on their side. The humane society, an allvolunteer organization that is overseen by a board of trustees, provides services for all types of pets, domestic animals and livestock, according to longtime member Sharon Karns.

TROY — Outstanding in their field they are competitors, but in one section of the community they are partners. Operation Cloverleaf wrapped up its 11th year of landscape cooperation last week with its annual field day cleanup of the vast 18 acres located at the Interstate 75 and State Route 41 interchange. The interchange greets Troy residents on their commute home and welcomes visitors to the city and Operation Cloverleaf has enhanced its landscape for more than a decade and also has inspired other communities to do similar projects as well.

Ted Mercer, owner of Mercer Group who spearheaded the project more than a decade ago, said Operation Cloverleaf started as a chance for local landscape companies to work together to beautify the city of Troy’s busiest areas using their tools, skills and expertise to benefit the entire community at no cost to the taxpayers. “Throughout the year we are competitors, but through this project we are partners,” Mercer said this week. “We all get a lot of positive comments throughout the year on our work out there and it’s enjoyable because it’s a team effort.” More than a decade ago, eight companies responded to Mercer’s request to donate their labor, expertise and

equipment to maintain the site at no cost to tax payers. The following companies donate their landscape equipment and labor are are members of Operation Cloverleaf: Greentech Lawn and Irrigation, All-Pro Turf, Landscape and Ponds, Quality Lawn, Landscape & Fence Inc., Tree Care Inc., Shields Lawn Tamers, Ever Green Turf & Landscape, Anderson’s Tree & Turf Tech and Mercer Group Inc. Athletic Field Contractors. Operation Cloverleaf’s professional services amounts to $51,833 in donated services from all members each year. Mercer has tabulated what the annual cost of services would total: some $51,833

The two gingerly maneuvered to take photos of the torch against the background of the planet, the orb’s edge glowing with sunrise. See Page A6

T A C L O B A N , Philippines (AP) — The central Philippine city of Tacloban was in ruins Saturday, a day after being ravaged by one of the strongest typhoons on record, as horrified residents spoke of storm surges as high as trees and authorities said they were expecting a “very high number of fatalities.” At least 138 people were confirmed dead in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan. But Philippine Red Cross Secretary General Gwen Pang said that agency field staff in the region estimated the toll was about 1,000. Pang, however, emphasized that AP PHOTO it was “just an estimate.” The typhoon slammed Tacloban city, devastated by powerful Typhoon Haiyan, is seen Saturday in Leyte province, central Philippines.

High death toll feared

Sunday, November 10, 2013

Typhoon From page A1 into six central Philippine islands on Friday, wiping away buildings and leveling seaside homes. At least 118 of the confirmed deaths were on hardest-hit Leyte Island, where Tacloban is located, said national disaster agency spokesman Maj. Reynaldo Balido. But after arriving in Tacloban on Saturday, Interior Secretary Mar Roxas said it was too early to know how many people had died in the storm, which was heading toward Vietnam after moving away from the Philippines. “The rescue operation is ongoing. We expect a very high number of fatalities as well as injured,” Roxas said. “All systems, all vestiges of modern living — communications, power, water — all are down. Media is down, so there is no way to communicate with the people in a mass sort of way.” President Benigno Aquino III said the casualties “will be substantially more,” but gave no figure or estimate. He said the government’s prior-

Hartley From page A1 strengthened by recent changes taking place within Civitas Media. Our reporters and editorial staffs have been given the charge to concentrate on presenting sto-

ity was to restore power and communications in isolated areas to allow for the delivery of relief and medical assistance to victims. The Philippine Red Cross and its partners were preparing for a major relief effort “because of the magnitude of the disaster,” said the agency’s chairman, Richard Gordon. The airport in Tacloban, a city of 200,000 located about 580 kilometers (360 miles) southeast of Manila, looked like a muddy wasteland of debris Saturday, with crumpled tin roofs and upturned cars. The airport tower’s glass windows were shattered, and air force helicopters were busy flying in and out at the start of relief operations. “The devastation is, I don’t have the words for it,” Roxas said. “It’s really horrific. It’s a great human tragedy.” Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin said Aquino was “speechless” when he told him of the devastation the typhoon had wrought in Tacloban. “I told him all systems are down,” Gazmin said. “There is no power, no

water, nothing. People are desperate. They’re looting.” U.S. Marine Col. Mike Wylie surveyed the damage in Tacloban prior to possible American assistance. “The storm surge came in fairly high and there is significant structural damage and trees blown over,” said Wylie, who is a member of the U.S.-Philippines Military Assistance Group based in Manila. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement that America “stands ready to help.” Tacloban is near the Red Beach on Leyte Island where U.S. Gen. Douglas MacArthur waded ashore on October 20, 1944, fulfilling his famous pledge, “I shall return,” made in March 1942 after President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered him to relocate to Australia as Japanese forces pushed back U.S. and Filipino defenders. Tacloban was the first city to be liberated by U.S. and Filipino forces and served as the Philippines’ temporary capital for several months. It is also the home town of former Filipino first lady Imelda Marcos, whose nephew,

Alfred Romualdez, is the city’s mayor. The president of the European Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso, said in a message to Aquino that the EC had sent a team to assist the Philippine authorities and that “we stand ready to contribute with urgent relief and assistance if so required in this hour of need.” Weather officials said Haiyan had sustained winds of 235 kilometers per hour (147 miles per hour), with gusts of 275 kph (170 mph), when it made landfall. By those measurements, Haiyan would be comparable to a strong Category 4 hurricane in the U.S., and nearly in the top category, a 5. Hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons are the same, but have different names in different parts of the world. One Tacloban resident said he and others took refuge inside a parked Jeep to protect themselves from the storm, but the vehicle was swept away by a surging wall of water. “The water was as high as a coconut tree,” said 44-year-old Sandy

I consider to be three of the best community newspaper sports editors in Ohio,” Fong said. “In addition to the comprehensive local coverage they already provide for readers, we look to add even more local features for our readers to enjoy.” Fong has won more than 40 Associated Press

Society of Ohio awards for his sports writing, column writing and news feature writing, including being named Sports Writer of the Year for the state of Ohio three times in his career. While in college, he also was named Big Ten College Sports Writer of the Year in 1995 and received

a Freedom Forum Foundation Scholarship for sports writing. He also will continue to write his weekly column for the Troy Daily News. Fong and his wife Michelle reside in Troy. They have two children, Sophie and Max, who attend Heywood Elementary School.

the Piqua Area Chamber’s Business Showcase. She also has been active in Miami County’s 4-H program, serving as a club adviser for 10 years, serving as president of the Miami East PTO and has held positions with the Miami East Music Boosters and the Miami East High School Academic Boosters.

Troy Daily News • Torotoro, a bicycle taxi driver who lives near the airport with his wife and 8-year-old daughter. “I got out of the Jeep and I was swept away by the rampaging water with logs, trees and our house, which was ripped off from its mooring.” “When we were being swept by the water, many people were floating and raising their hands and yelling for help. But what can we do? We also needed to be helped,” Torotoro said. In Torotoro’s village, bodies could be seen lying along the muddy main road, as residents who had lost their homes huddled, holding on to the few things they had managed to save. The road was lined with trees that had fallen to the ground. Vice Mayor Jim Pe of Coron town on Busuanga, the last island battered by the typhoon before it blew away to the South China Sea, said most of the houses and buildings there had been destroyed or damaged. Five people drowned in the storm surge and three others were missing, he said by phone. “It was like a 747 fly-

ing just above my roof,” he said, describing the sound of the winds. He said his family and some of his neighbors whose houses were destroyed took shelter in his basement. Philippine broadcaster ABS-CBN showed fierce winds whipping buildings and vehicles as storm surges swamped Tacloban with debris-laden floodwaters. In the aftermath of the storm, people were seen weeping while retrieving bodies of loved ones inside buildings and on a street that was littered with fallen trees, roofing material and other building parts torn off in the typhoon’s fury. All that was left of one large building whose walls were smashed in were the skeletal remains of its rafters. Many packed evacuation centers collapsed in Tacloban as the typhoon raged, a police official said. He said he saw a popular mall being looted Saturday by residents who carted away anything they can lay their hands on, including a flatscreen TV, a small refrigerator, food items and clothes.


members also donates 60 cubic yards of hardwood mulch and sprays the interchange’s sound walls with vegetation control spray along with guard rails, gravel berms and under the overpass to keep weeds at bay. The landscape gurus also get in the “Strawberry Spirit” and stencil strawberries on the turf of the I-75/State Route 41 interchange to welcome Strawberry Festival fanatics. In 2010, Operation Cloverleaf added 5,000 red appledorn tulips and 45 “Knockout” roses to the interchange area. Donations for Operation Cloverleaf can by made through the Troy Foundation. “We enjoy doing this for the city of Troy and it’s our way of giving back to our community,” Mercer said.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on a middle course is sought for the Middle East: Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s stop in Egypt Sunday underscored that developments there continue to put America between a rock and a hard place. The Arab Spring of 2010 toppled President Hosni Mubarak and seemed to signal a new day for democracy in that nation of 81 million, an important ally of the United States in the Middle East. The election of Mohamed Morsi as president in 2012 presented difficulties for relations. The elections were democratic, a plus, but Morsi was the candidate of the long-suppressed, Islamist, Muslim Brotherhood. Some Egyptians, including the long-ruling military, whom he began seeking to bring under civilian authority, soon grew disaffected with what some considered an excessively Islamic trend in the policies of the new president. On that basis, the Egyptian military overthrew Morsi in a coup d’etat in July, installing a government that was a thinly disguised surrogate for Gen. Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and other Egyptian officers. Since then Washington has reduced, but not cut off, military and other aid to Egypt, continuing to pretend that what occurred was not a coup, which by U.S. law would have required an end to U.S. aid. The problem for the administration posed by America’s principles on democratic governance in Egypt is that other U.S. allies in the region, including Israel and Saudi Arabia, supported Mubarak and found the Egyptians’ election of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Morsi disquieting. The big stop on Kerry’s trip is Saudi Arabia, where he hoped Monday to calm its rulers’ anger at the United States on several matters — accepting the overthrow of Mubarak, initially supporting the election of Morsi, not snuggling up to Gen. Sisi, not attacking Syria’s Bashar Assad regime and moving toward constructive talks with Iran, the Saudis’ rival. Kerry went to Egypt first to talk with the generals. He reportedly urged them to stick to what they call their road map back to democracy, to include a new constitution and parliamentary and presidential elections next spring, but the real point was the legitimacy he gave their rule by visiting there, in the eyes of the Egyptians, the Saudis and the Israelis. Eventually Obama will have to figure out what he really thinks about democracy in the Middle East. In the

meantime, the United States continues to try to run with the hare and hunt with the hounds.

New York Times on Asia’s college exam mania: The university entrance examination system across East Asia might once have been needed to allocate scarce university slots. But even with expanded college enrollment, and more slots, the competition to get into higher-ranked universities is destroying the lives of young people and their families in countries like South Korea and Japan. On Nov. 7, 600,000 South Korean high school seniors will take the brutal university entrance exam, which many have been preparing for since primary school. The results will shape the rest of their lives, their jobs and even their marriages. The stress is such that the suicide rate among young people up to age 24 rose to 9.4 per 100,000 in 2010, a nearly 50 percent increase from 2000. In South Korea, where more than 70 percent of high school graduates enter university, education is a national obsession that the government worries is actually damaging society. Education accounted for nearly 12 percent of consumer spending last year, and parents spent the equivalent of 1.5 percent of G.D.P. on cram schools for their children. There are now more cram school instructors in South Korea than regular schoolteachers, and the exams are so difficult that even college professors admit they could not pass them. Excessive spending on education in South Korea accounts in significant part for the 45 percent poverty rate among the elderly, who cannot save for retirement because they have spent so much of their money on educating their children. … Some governments are starting to reconsider this maniacal focus on entrance exams. Japanese officials have talked about moving toward admissions systems that evaluate the applicants more broadly. But many universities resist this change because, they say, it would make admission decisions subjective. The paradox is these ridiculous tests don’t necessarily lead to demanding college classes. In Japan, where almost all college students graduate, it’s quite common for students to be asked only to parrot back lecture notes. Rigorous thinking, reading and writing too often is simply not expected. Doing away with rigid entrance exams is just the first step. What needs to be debated is the quality of education once the students are admitted.

Did you lose that arm for me? Troy Troy Veteran’s Day is upon us, since we celebrate this holiday on Nov. 11 each year. Once again, I find myself at a loss to express my gratitude to those who served or are serving in the military. This gratitude is not new for me, because I grew up in a home with a veteran. My father is now in his eighties, but an old black and white photo of him as a young Army officer sits on an end table in his home reminding me of his own service. It was his example that taught me this deep respect for the men and women of the military. Twenty-year-old country singer Scotty McCreery must have patriotic roots that run deep like mine. But honestly have you ever heard of a country artist who isn’t patriotic? Recently, I attended my first ever country concert featuring McCreery who was the Season 10 American Idol winner. Besides old Idol fans like me and my hubby, McCreery had a following of screaming girls in cowboy boots and rhinestone belts singing along to his hit songs at Troy’s Hobart Arena last month. Personally, the price of the ticket was worth just hearing the performer’s touching

That’s why I wrote this column to possibly express my gratitude to him and every courageous man and woman who have served or are serving to make sure our nation remains the land of the free and the home of the brave. Thank you and Happy Veteran’s Day!

WWII Doolittle Raiders making final toast hours of the thousands of hours I will be on Earth.” Only four of the 80 Raiders are still living, and one was unable to attend Saturday because of health issues. Officials at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force said more than 600 people, including Air Force leaders and Raiders widows and children, were expected for the invitation-only ceremony Saturday evening. Also expected were relatives of Chinese villagers who helped Raiders elude capture and two U.S. survivors of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor five months earlier. After Thomas Griffin of Cincinnati died in February at age 96, the survivors decided they would gather this autumn for one last toast together instead of waiting as had been the original plan for the last two survivors to make the toast. Raiders participating Saturday were Lt. Col. Richard “Dick” Cole, Doolittle’s co-pilot, 98, of Comfort, Texas; Lt. Col. Edward Saylor, 93, of Puyallup, Wash., and Sgt. David Thatcher, 92, of Missoula, Mont. The fourth surviving Raider, Lt. Col. Robert Hite, 93, couldn’t come, but his son and other family members from Nashville, Tenn., planned to represent him. Son Wallace Hite said his father, wearing a Raiders blazer and other traditional garb for their reunions, made his own salute to the fallen with a silver goblet of wine at

The 80 silver goblets in the ceremony were presented to the Raiders in 1959 by the city of Tucson, Ariz. The Raiders’ names are engraved twice, the second upside-down. During the ceremony, white-gloved cadets pour

cognac into the participants’ goblets. Those of the deceased are turned upside-down. The cognac will be from 1896, Doolittle’s birth year. The volunteers for the April 1942 mission were told only that it would be extremely hazardous when they began training. The attack on Tokyo and other locations on Honshu Island began with the risky sea launch

of 16 land-based bombers from the aircraft carrier USS Hornet. After the attack, the planes lacked fuel to reach safe airfields in China. Three crew members died as the Raiders bailed out or crash-landed their planes in China, but most were helped to safety by Chinese villagers and soldiers. The Japanese retaliated by executing Chinese suspected of helping the Americans.

DAYTON (AP) — Thousands of visitors streamed to the national Air Force museum on Saturday to pay a Veterans Day weekend tribute to the few surviving members of the Doolittle Raiders, airmen whose daring raid on Japan helped boost American morale during World War II, as they planned to make their ceremonial final toast together. With many waving flags, spectators ranging from small children to fellow war veterans greeted three Raiders who waved from a motorcade into the National Museum of the US Air Force near Dayton in southwest Ohio. After a memorial service and B-25 bomber flyover, the Raiders planned to make a last toast to comrades who died in or since their mission. The toast grew from reunions led by Lt. Col. James “Jimmy” Doolittle, who commanded the daring mission credited with stunning the Japanese after a string of military successes. “It’s a piece of history, it’s the last time,” said Bruce Sink, 62, of Kettering, Ohio, who was browsing books about the Raiders at the museum gift shop. “These were pretty brave guys.” Twelve-year-old Joseph John Castellano’s grandparents brought him from their Dayton home. “This was Tokyo. The odds of their survival were 1 in a million,” the boy said. “I just felt like I owe them a few short

The shutdown’s surprise effect on jobs numbers

WASHINGTON (AP) — The government shutdown may have affected October’s jobs numbers. But not how you think. For weeks, the White House had braced for a dour report on hiring, with economists and aides lowering expectations and blaming last month’s partial shutdown for the inevitable bad news to come. Then Friday’s numbers materialized: Employers appeared to have ignored the shutdown and hired away, to the tune of 204,000 jobs in October. The shutdown, it seemed, had had no effect. Not so fast. In the height of irony, the 16 days of federal worker furloughs and government disruptions may have helped, not hurt, the improved jobs picture.

Typically, jobs numbers are announced on the first Friday of the month. Because of the shutdown, the Bureau of Labor Statistics delayed the release of the jobs numbers by one week to allow more time to collect payroll and household data. That extra time resulted in an above average response rate for payroll data. So, not to get hung up on numbers, but the average participation rate by employers in payroll surveys for the nine months before October was 76.4 percent. That meant that in subsequent months, as more data was collected, the hiring numbers were adjusted, often upward. In October, with an extra week to collect data, the participation rate was 83.5 percent, the highest ever. A robust hiring num-

ber, to some economists, now felt slightly inflated. “It seems that when the initial response rate is high, the initial payroll number is often, though certainly not always, stronger than the prior trend,” Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, wrote in a research note. In other words, if the jobs numbers in prior months were based on a lower participation rate, a stronger participation rate would skew the number up. “Tentatively, we think the effect of this could explain all the overshoot in payrolls,” Shepherdson wrote. As a result, some economists are predicting that when the October numbers are updated, they might be in for a downward revision and that

November could yield a lower number as well. “Businesses may have inadvertently counted employment for an extra week,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics. “That could juice up the number. That may mean that we actually get surprised next month with a much weaker number.” The shutdown had another effect on the employment data. Besides conducting a survey of employers, which gives data on actual hiring, the government also surveys households to determine the unemployment rate. Furloughed federal employees were considered unemployed during the shutdown and thus contributed to the increase in the unemployment rate in October from 7.2 percent to 7.3

percent. Without the furloughs, the unemployment rate would have dropped. Complicating things, some furloughed employees were counted as still employed. As a result, if they had been properly listed as unemployed, the jobless rate for October could have been higher than 7.3 percent. But those are temporary anomalies and they won’t affect the November unemployment rate. Even with data showing more hiring in the month, President Barack Obama on Friday stuck with the White House theme that the shutdown “harmed our jobs market.” “The unemployment rate still ticked up and we don’t yet know all the data for this final quarter of the year, but it could be down because off what happened in

Washington,” he said. The data did have some warnings. Americans’ participation in the labor force went down. “Even factoring out the impact of the shutdown, we have a lot fewer people in the labor force than you’d expect,” said Jared Bernstein, senior fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and former economic adviser to Vice President Joe Biden. “That pushed the unemployment rate down because they are not looking and it takes away from growth.” Then he apologized for being a two-handed economist: “I consider the (jobs) report evidence of a resilient American economy on the one hand, but some pronounced remaining weaknesses on the other.”

Olympic torch taken on spacewalk MOSCOW (AP) — An Olympic torch took a spacewalk for the first time Saturday, carefully held by two Russian cosmonauts outside the International Space Station as it orbited some 260 miles above Earth. Video streamed by NASA showed Oleg Kotov and Sergei Ryazanskiy carrying the unlit torch of the Sochi games, which bobbed weightlessly at the end of a tether in a darkness dotted by stars. The two gingerly maneuvered to take photos of the torch against the background of the planet, the orb’s edge glowing with

sunrise. They then returned it to the space station before continuing with other tasks on a spacewalk that was to last about six hours, including attaching a footrest and a camera platform to the exterior of the orbiting laboratory. The torch was launched into space from the Russian-operated Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Thursday morning. It will return to Earth with a three-man crew on Monday. The torch will not burn aboard the space outpost because lighting it would consume precious oxygen and pose a threat to the

crew. The Olympic torch was taken aboard the U.S. space shuttle Atlantis in 1996 for the Atlanta Summer Olympics, but this is the first it time it has been taken outside a spacecraft. The Sochi Olympic flame started its relay on Oct. 7, four months ahead of the Winter Games, and it is to cover some 65,000 kilometers (39,000 miles). Most of the time the flame will be safely encased in a lantern. On Saturday, the flame was somewhere nearly as cold and remote as the torch’s temporary residence in outer space — the Siberian city of Yakutsk.

Talks over Iran’s disputed nuke program hit a snag GENEVA (AP) — Talks on a deal to temporarily curb Iran’s nuclear program ran into trouble Saturday when France questioned whether the proposal went far enough, casting doubt an agreement could be reached during the current round of negotiations. Chances of bridging all differences diminished as the day went on. A Western diplomat in Geneva for the talks told The Associated Press it appeared that a new round of negotiations would be needed to agree on all points of a startup deal meant to lead to a comprehensive agreement ensuring that Tehran’s nuclear work remains peaceful. He said preparations were being made by both sides for an announcement later in the day of a new meeting within a few weeks. He said earlier that the French were holding out for condi-

tions on the Iranians tougher than those agreed to by the U.S. and France’s other negotiating partners, diminishing hopes of a done deal Saturday. Comments by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif increased skepticism that the two sides would agree on the full contours of a first-step deal at the current negotiating round. “There are differences,” Zarif told Iranian state TV, adding that if open questions remained after Saturday, the talks would reconvene within a week to 10 days. But the current talks in Geneva were still underway late Saturday, with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, and foreign ministers from Britain, France, Germany and Russia meeting with one another, and some

with Zarif. Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister Baodong Li also arrived Friday evening. The foreign ministers of the seven delegations discussing Iran convened a meeting late Saturday night, and the Iranian officials were not included. French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius spoke of “several points that … we’re not satisfied with compared to the initial text,” telling France-Inter Radio his nation does not want to be part of a “con game.” He did not specify, but his comments suggested France thought a final draft of any first-step deal was too favorable to Iran, echoing concerns raised by Israel and several prominent U.S. legislators. The French position was confirmed by another Western diplomat. Both gave no specifics and demanded anonymity because they were not authorized to comment on the diplomatic maneuvering. Iranian state TV strongly criticized the French position, calling France “Israel’s

representatives at the talks. Iran’s IRNA news agency cited Iranian President Hassan Rouhani as urging world powers to reach a deal. “I hope the parties negotiating with Iran in the 5+1 group use the exceptional opportunity that the Iranian nation has provided to the West and the international community so that we achieve a positive result in a reasonable time,” IRNA quoted Rouhani as telling a Japanese foreign minister visiting Tehran Saturday evening. Rouhani said sanctions and threats don’t benefit anyone. Iran “has insisted that threats and sanctions have not resolved any problem and further complicate the path forward, and believes that the only solution is talks on the basis of respect and mutual confidence,” IRNA quoted him as saying. Optimism about an interim agreement had been high when the talks were extended for a third day on Saturday and raised to a ministerial level. Fabius cited differences

over Iran’s Arak reactor southeast of Tehran, which could produce enough plutonium for several nuclear weapons a year once it goes online. He also said there was disagreement over efforts to limit Iran’s uranium enrichment to levels that would require substantial further enriching before they could be used as the fissile core of a nuclear weapon. French Foreign Ministry spokesman Romain Nadal pointed to “rather large cohesion” among the negotiators and said France wanted “the international community to see a serious change in the climate” of talks with Iran. “There have been years of talks that have led to nothing,” Nadal said, alluding to the need for tough terms on Iran. Iran, which denies any interest in nuclear weapons, currently runs more than 10,000 centrifuges that have created tons of fuel-grade material that can be further enriched to arm nuclear warheads.

duce a single warhead. Iran says it expects Arak, the plutonium producing reactor, to be completed and go online sometime next year. It would need additional facilities to reprocess the plutonium into weapons-grade material, and the U.N’s nuclear agency monitoring Iran’s atomic activities says it has seen no evidence of such a project. Fabius said Iran is opposed to suspending work on Arak while nuclear negotiations go on in an attempt to reach a first-stage agreement, then a comprehensive final deal limiting Tehran’s atomic work. He said that “for us” suspension was absolutely necessary, but it was unclear if that meant France was alone in seeing the issue as nonnegotiable or whether he was speaking for the rest of the negotiating group. Iran also is being asked to blend down “a great part of this stock at 20 percent, to 5 percent,” Fabius said. Uranium enriched to 5 percent is considered reactor fuel grade and upgrading it to weapons-level takes much longer than for 20 percent enriched uranium. Fabius suggested that the six powers were looking for an Iranian commitment to cap future enrichment at 5 percent. Kerry and his European counterparts arrived in Geneva on Friday with the talks at a critical stage following a full day of negotiations Thursday, and he said some obstacles remained in the way of any agreement offering sanctions reductions for nuclear concessions. The presence of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and the Chinese deputy foreign minister provided fresh hope for at least an interim deal.

Ohio State opens season with easy win If the rest of the starts by Shannon Scott and LaQuinton Ross go like the first one, No. 11 Ohio State won’t have any problem having a superlative season. Scott scored a career-high 16 points and Ross, also starting for the first time as a junior, had 14 points and a personal-best 11 rebounds to lead the Buckeyes past Morgan State 89-50 on Saturday.

Bengals’ measuring stick still the Ravens The Cincinnati Bengals have long admired and respected the success of the Baltimore Ravens, their accomplished rival in the AFC North. That feeling hasn’t changed, even though the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens bring a 3-5 record into Sunday’s matchup against the first-place Bengals. Cincinnati (6-3) has far outshined Baltimore this season, yet the Bengals still believe the true test of how far they’ve come will be determined by how they fare against the desperate Ravens.

COVINGTON — When everything goes right, Covington’s A.J. Ouellette does plenty of dynamic things running the ball. The fact that, on his first touch of the game, he slipped after taking the handoff, stumbled and nearly fell down — yet still was able to find his way through a gaping hole in the defense for a 44-yard gain — shows just how dominant his Buccaneer teammates are. Ouellette had 149 yards and four touchdowns before halftime, becoming Covington High School’s all-time leader in career all-purpose yardage in the process, and the Buccaneer defense held Portsmouth Notre Dame to less than 100 yards of offense in the entire game in a 46-0 Covington victory Saturday night in the opening round of the Division VII, Region 26 playoffs at Smith Field. “That’s a real physical football team we just played,” Covington coach Dave Miller said. “They came out and hit us hard a few times, and that’s good for our kids. Because we’re going to be seeing nothing but that kind of football the rest of the way. “That’s a good football team, too, and we did a nice job of shutting them down defensively. We controlled the line of

scrimmage pretty well.” Oullette can attest to that. The senior, who already holds the Buccs’ career record for rushing yardage and continues to add to his total, entered the game needing only 46 allpurpose yards to pass 2006 graduate

A play to remember Pick-6 sparks Cavs in playoff win By Rob Kiser

Civitas Media

SIDNEY — No one will ever mistake Lehman’s 220-pound senior offensive/defensive lineman Brad Montgomery for Deion Sanders or Devon Hester. His 7-yard interception return for his first high school touchdown late in third quarter of the Cavaliers’ 44-9 Division VII, Region 26 playoff win over Bainbridge Paint Valley won’t land him an audition on “Dancing With The Stars.” But there is no question the play lifted the entire Lehman team and finished the Bearcats for good, giving Lehman a 34-7 lead. The Cavaliers (10-1) will play Triad at a site to be determined Sunday at 7 p.m. next Saturday. Paint Valley closed the season at 8-3. “Oh my gosh,” Lehman linebacker John Husa said. “That was unbelievable. For something like that to happen for

Brad — it was just great to see.” Fellow Lehman linebacker Kristopher Lee agreed. “Not only does he score, he drags a huge offensive lineman with him into the end zone,” Lee said. “It gave our whole team a lift, and it had to take a lot out of them.” It happened so quick, Montgomery didn’t know what to think. And he didn’t realize he was carrying another 200-plus pounder the last five yards. “I couldn’t feel anything,” Montgomery said. “I didn’t even know there was a guy holding on to me. It feels great to get a touchdown in that situation. I am just happy for the team to get a win.” Even Lehman coach Richard Roll had to smile about that one. “I think it gave us a lift and demoralized them,” Roll said. And it was fitting that it was a defensive play that finished things off — the Cavaliers defense would come up with four turnovers and the spe-

Irving lifts Cavs in 2OT CLEVELAND (AP) — Kyrie Irving scored a season-high 39 points and hit the game-winning layup with 0.6 seconds remaining in the second overtime to lift the Cleveland Cavaliers a 127-125 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night. The Cavaliers called time out after rookie Michael Carter-Williams’ 3-pointer over Irving tied the game with 11.3 seconds remaining. Irving, who missed potential game-winning shots at the end of regulation and the first overtime, took the inbounds pass, avoided a double team near the top of the key, drove the lane and scored on a left-handed lay-in. Philadelphia called time out, but CarterWilliams’ inbounds pass went out of bounds. Thaddeus Young’s lay-in with 5.5 seconds remaining tied the game in regulation and Evan Turner’s baseline drive tied it with 8.7 seconds left in the first overtime. Dion Waiters scored 24 points and Jarret Jack added 20 for the Cavaliers in the second game of the home-and-home set. Turner led the Sixers with 31 points and Young had 29. Irving scored 13 points in the final period to help Cleveland overcome a 10-point deficit. He hit a 3-pointer and a jumper and Jack added a 3-pointer from the corner to make it 87-86. Irving’s three-point play gave Cleveland a 93-92 lead with 6:56 remaining. Cleveland stretched the lead to 97-92, but Turner’s two free throws made it 104-103 with 1:04 to go. Jack’s jumper from the corner with 45.7 seconds remaining pushed the lead to three points, but Spencer Hawes’ basket with 32.4 seconds left made it 106-105. Jack missed from the corner, but Tristan Thompson grabbed the rebound and split two free throws with 10.5 seconds to go. Young tied the game with a strong drive past Thompson. Cleveland built a 116-109 lead with 1:35 left in the first OT, but the Sixers rallied again. Philadelphia, picked by many to be

Blue Jackets end 5-game skid with 5-2 win

Cleveland Cavaliers’ Kyrie Irving, right, drives around Philadelphia 76ers’ Michael CarterCOLUMBUS (AP) — Williams during overtime Saturday in Cleveland. Ryan Johansen and Brandon The Cavaliers won 127-125 in double overtime.

one of the worst teams in the league, has been an early season surprise. The Sixers won their first three games, including victories over Miami and Chicago, but then had home losses to Golden State and Washington by a total of 34 points. The Sixers rallied from a 14-point deficit in the first quarter Friday to blow out the Cavaliers and picked up that momentum in the second half Saturday. Cleveland center Andrew Bynum didn’t play in order to rest his sore knees. The 7-footer has yet to play in games on back-to-back nights as he works his way back from surgery on both knees. Bynum was booed throughout his return to Philadelphia on Friday when he scored four points and had five rebounds in 18 minutes. Cavaliers rookie forward Anthony Bennett, who strained his right shoulder Friday, was scoreless in nine minutes. Bennett, the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft, has struggled in the early going of his first season, hitting 1 of 21 shots from the field.

Dubinsky each had a goal and two assists, and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the New York Islanders 5-2 on Saturday night to snap a five-game losing streak. Cam Atkinson and R.J. Umberger also scored for the Blue Jackets, who pulled away with three goals in the third period. James Wisniewski added an empty-net goal and an assist. The line of Dubinsky, Johansen and Atkinson led the way, ending Columbus’ longest skid in two years. Last season’s Vezina Trophy winner, Sergei Bobrovsky, who had struggled of late, played his second consecutive strong game. He made 24 saves and punctuated his performance with an assist on Wisniewski’s goal.

The Blue Jackets went 2 for 4 on the power play and now hit the road for seven of their next eight games, including a long-distance swing through Western Canada. The Blue Jackets are 11-1-4 all-time against the Islanders, including 7-0-2 at home. Frans Nielsen and Thomas Hickey scored for the Islanders, handed their third loss in a row. New York has only two wins in its last seven games. New York had one power play and has not scored a man-advantage goal in seven games, going 0 for 22. Evgeni Nabokov struggled controlling rebounds as the game went along. He stopped 24 of 28 shots and has allowed 17 goals in his last four games. With the score tied at

2, Travis Hamonic was whistled for slashing 15 seconds into the third period and Umberger capitalized with his third goal 12 seconds later, redirecting Wisniewski’s point shot. Atkinson followed at 3:24 with his fourth, shoveling Johansen’s rebound over Nabokov, positioned too deep in his net. The two-goal cushion and mini offensive outburst for Columbus was a long time coming. Early in the second period, the Blue Jackets finally broke a 17-minute stretch without a shot on goal. Johansen soon followed with his fifth goal, scoring on a breakaway at 9:27 to make it 2-1 and give Columbus its first lead in about 310 minutes spanning six games.

B ordelon, Justin Williams, Zakk Collins, Jordan Wolfe — all 14 of these seniors just get it done. It’s just a great group of kids.” Another one of those seniors — Alexander — took over to start the second half. In a show of force by the Buccs’ line, Alexander carried the ball 10 consecutive times to start the third quarter, converting a pair of third downs along the way until Covington faced a fourth-and-1 from the Notre Dame 25. Williams took a sneak four yards to keep the drive going, and Alexander carried it four more times to finish off the 15-play, 70-yard drive with a 5-yard score to make it 40-0 Covington. The drive chewed up more than nine minutes and left only 3:39 on the clock in the third — a longer, more punishing sequence than Alexander’s earlier 80-yards-at-once run. Either way, it all worked. “He handled all of it great,” Miller said of Alexander. “He got hit a few times in the first half, but he ran hard, put his pads down and did a nice job in the second half. “(The nine-plus-minute drive) is a credit to our offensive line. Year in and

year out, these kids control the line of scrimmage and clear nice holes for our backs. Coach (Shad) Earick does a great job with them.” Nathan Blei completed a 19-yard touchdown pass to Justin Williams for the fourth quarter’s only score, and the Buccaneer defense took care of the rest. All told, the Titans only gained 80 yards in the game — none through the air — while the Buccs piled up 407 rushing yards. Alexander, who also broke the 100-yard mark in the first half, finished with 172 yards on 24 carries. With all of that domination, though, Miller knows there’s a few things the Buccs will need to clean up before facing Marion Local — a 63-14 winner over Fort Loramie — next week at a site to be determined. “We’re still putting the ball on the ground too much (four fumbles, one lost),” he said. “We’ve got to take care of that. And we had some trouble with extra points tonight, too, and that could make a big difference. We’ve got some things we can work on before next week.” Fancy footwork, however, will not be one of them.

Buccs From page A8 seconds — a long time on one play — to see where he was headed and plug the gap. Instead, the Covington offensive line cleared so big a hole that Ouellette went through untouched until a defender cut him off at the Notre Dame 23-yard line, leaving Ouellette 2 yards shy of the record. “He slipped taking the handoff. Ordinarily, he probably would have been gone on a play like that,” Miller said. “But that says a lot about the offensive line that he was able to stumble through without getting touched.” Ouellette broke the record with a 15-yard carry on the next play, then two plays later he found the end zone to put the Buccs up 7-0 with 8:28 left in the first. After the Covington defense held again, Bobby Alexander broke an 80-yard run up the gut, being caught from behind at the 3-yard line, and Ouellette finished off the drive on the next play to make it 14-0. And after the Buccs forced a fumble on the ensuing possession, Ouellette scored on a 6-yard run to make it 21-0 after one quarter. The Buccs again forced Notre Dame to punt, then the teams traded fumbles. Covington nearly fum-

bled the ball away on its first play but held on, and three plays later quarterback Jared Williams hit a wide-open Zakk Collins with a 10-yard touchdown pass. The Titans then lost a fumble on the first play of the ensuing drive, and Covington took it 33yards in eight plays, with Ouellette fin-

the line of scrimmage into the end zone and Rourke falling on it for a safety. But the Cavaliers took control from the start in the third quarter. Lehman, who had minus-4 yards rushing at halftime, went right down the field on opening kickoff. “We were saving it for the next game,” Roll said. “But we decided to roll it out. We put an extra blocker in there and it worked.” Lane Monnin had an-18 yard run to set up a 20-yard TD run by Rourke to cap the 65-yard drive. Rourke got a great block to get to the perimeter and slipped a tackle at the 10-yard line. Ian Smith’s third PAT of the night made it 27-7. “I thought that was a huge drive,” Roll said. “And Nick’s a good runner. He showed that.”

Paint Valley was moving down the field when Lee broke into the backfield on second-and-five at the Lehman 21. Not only did he strip McFadden of the ball, Lee found the ball and recovered it at the 28. “I wasn’t sure where the ball was at first,” Lee said. “I just wanted to make a play and when I saw the ball I fell on it.” That would lead to Montgomery’s interception return after a Lehman punt pinned the Bearcats back. In the fourth quarter, Smith kicked a 25-yard field goal and Spearman added his third TD of the night on a yard-run for the final margin. And on a night when there were no explosive offensive statistics, the Lehman defense dominated the game, capped Mike Ullery/Civitas Media by an interception return Max Schutt (30) and Michael Jacob (77) make a tackle for Lehman against Paint Valley Saturday. no one will soon forget.

“His leadership, his character and the fact that he’s a 24-7 guy. Those are the things I’m really going to miss,” Miller said of Ouellette. “Besides all of the things he does on the field, he leads in other ways. He’s really special that way. “And I could just go down the list. Dalton

From page A8 all Cavaliers the rest of the way. “They kind of jumped on us early,” Roll said. “But, once our defense got started, they never let up.” Greg Spearman countered with a 30-yard TD reception from Nick Rourke and scored on a 5-yard run as Lehman took a 14-7 lead. Husa then stripped Paint Valley quarterback Anthony McFadden of the ball in the Bearcat backfield with Brad Montgomery recovering at the Paint Valley six. On fourth-and-goal from the one, Husa barrelled into the end zone and Lehman led 20-7. “It feels good anytime you can help your team,” Husa said. Paint Valley got the final two points of the half when Lehman had a miscommunication on a punt snap, with the ball rolling 22 yards behind

Scott, Ross start, star for No. 11 OSU COLUMBUS (AP) — If the rest of the starts by Shannon Scott and LaQuinton Ross go like the first one, No. 11 Ohio State won’t have any problem having a superlative season. Scott scored a careerhigh 16 points and Ross, also starting for the first time as a junior, had 14 points and a personalbest 11 rebounds to lead the Buckeyes past Morgan State 89-50 on Saturday. Asked which career high most pleased him, coach Thad Matta refused to choose. “Quite honestly, both. For Shannon, him seeing the ball go through the basket, you see that hard work pay off that obviously gives you that boost of confidence,” Matta said. “For LaQuinton, we knew we were losing a great rebounder in Deshaun (Thomas). That’s one of the things we’ve questioned about this team — where’s the rebounding going to come from? He did a very nice job of rebounding out of his area. We’re going to need that from him.” Lenzelle Smith Jr. led the way with 18 points and spurred a first-half spurt for the Buckeyes, who improved to 93-18 in home openers and 89-22 in season debuts. Much of the drama vanished early after Ohio State scored the first eight points and built a 26-point halftime lead. Sam Thompson added

14 points and freshman Marc Loving had 10 for Ohio State. Scott had seven assists to go with his 16 points, while Ross registered his first career double-double. “(That balance) makes it really hard for our team to be guarded,” said Scott, the son of legendary North Carolina and NBA star Charlie Scott. “They really can’t focus in on one player. Everybody on the court is capable of scoring now.” The Buckeyes are coming off a 29-8 season in which they tied for second in the Big Ten with a 13-5 record. Ohio State returns four starters: Amir Williams, Aaron Craft, Smith and Thompson. Ross, who blossomed in the NCAA tournament last year as a reserve, is expected to step into the spot vacated by the early departure of Thomas, last year’s Big Ten scoring leader. For him to also do the job on the boards was a double-bonus. “We’ve been working on rebounding a lot in practices, just because our team is really not that big,” said the 6-foot8 Ross, a wing or even a big guard on offense. “You see we’ve got one 6-10 guy (Williams) and the rest of our guys are perimeter players. We’ve definitely been working on everybody pitching in and getting rebounds. It’s something I just did tonight.” Just as he had in a 93-63 exhibition victory over Walsh last Sunday, Matta brought Thompson off the bench and inserted Scott into the starting lineup. The combination of the quick Scott

and physical Craft gives the Buckeyes one of the best pairings of defensive guards in the country. Plus, Thompson provided a lift off the bench. Morgan State, coming off a 17-15 overall record and a 10-6 mark in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, won eight of its last nine games last season under eighth-year coach Todd Bozeman, formerly at California. But the Bears had difficulty matching up with Ohio State. Justin Black had 13 points, Ian Chiles 12 and Anthony Hubbard 11 for Morgan State, which was meeting the Buckeyes for the first time. “We knew obviously coming into the game that with them being ranked they would be a tough opponent,” Bozeman said. “Then Scott got it going right out of the box making 3s and that kind of loosens things up.” Scott hit three 3-pointers — a career high for a game — in the first 2:05 to power an 11-2 lead. Ohio State overcame some expected rough patches. At times, there was a disconnect on offense as the Buckeyes try to figure out who will take the shots and score the points provided by Thomas, who left after his junior year for the NBA draft. They did not hit a field goal for 4½ minutes during one stretch — then came back to reel off seven points in 90 seconds. Down just 29-19 after a 3 by Blake Bozeman, the coach’s son, at the 6:41 mark, things spiraled out

of control for the Bears as the Buckeyes went on a 16-0 run. Smith hit two 3s and added a layup for eight points, with backup center Trey McDonald adding four points in the surge, which finally ended with 46 seconds left when Dontre Pretlow hit a 3 for Morgan State. “That is just our brand of basketball, five guys being connected out there,” Smith said. “Our defense is what turns our offense to being so good. We come down, we get a stop, it ignites us.” It was a starting point for the Buckeyes. “It’s the first game of the year, we’ve got a long season ahead and we’re going to continue doing what we did tonight,” Ross said. Dayton 81, IPFW 80 DAYTON — Dayton’s Jordan Sibert knocked down a 3-pointer with one second remaining to

life the Flyers to a thrilling 81-80 victory over IPFW to kick off the 2013-13 season. Dyshawn Pierre led Dayton (1-0) with 24 points, eight rebounds and four assists. Sibert finished with 10 points off the bench, and Kharl Price added 17 points. BG 102, Earlham 49 BOWLING GREEN — Junior Jehvon Clarke had 17 points, eight assists and six steals Saturday as Bowling Green dominated Earlham in a 10249 victory in the season opener for both teams at the Stroh Center. Freshman Spencer Parker came off the bench in his first game as a Falcon to put up 16 points for Bowling Green with six rebounds and six assists. Starting forward Chauncey Orr was twofor-three from the 3-point line and had 14 points overall. Richaun Holmes

chipped in with 12 points and a team-high eight rebounds. The Falcons had a double-digit lead at 12:00 in the first half and never looked back. They led by 20 points at halftime. Ohio 75, N. Iowa 64 ATHENS — Junior forward Maurice Ndour scored a game-high 20 points to lead Ohio University to a 75-64 win over Northern Iowa in front of 11,162 fans inside the Convocation Center Saturday. Ndour finished the game by going 8-of-12 from the field. He also connected on a pair of 3-pointers, tallied a pair of blocks and had five rebounds. As a team, Ohio finished the game by going 11-of-23 (47.8 percent) from beyond the arc and 27-52 (51.9 percent) overall, while holding UNI to 38.8 percent shooting from the floor.

Bengals still measure success by showing vs Ravens BALTIMORE (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals have long admired and respected the success of the Baltimore Ravens, their accomplished rival in the AFC North. That feeling hasn’t changed, even though the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens bring a 3-5 record into Sunday’s matchup against the firstplace Bengals. Cincinnati (6-3) has far outshined Baltimore this season, yet the Bengals still believe the true test of how far they’ve come will be determined by how they fare against the desperate Ravens. “I always use the Baltimore Ravens as a measuring stick,” said Cincinnati coach Marvin Lewis, who earned a Super Bowl ring in 2001 as Baltimore’s defensive coordinator. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has thrown four interceptions and only two touchdown passes in four career games against the Ravens. Although the Baltimore defense has changed dramatically since that Super Bowl victory last February, Dalton knows he must be at his best

on Sunday at a stadium where Cincinnati hasn’t won since 2009. “The Ravens have been one of the best teams in this division for a while,” Dalton said. “Anytime you can go against teams like they’ve had, you see where you’re at and see what kind of team that you’ve got. We don’t expect anything less this year.” With a victory, Baltimore can move with-

in a game of Cincinnati in the loss column. A defeat would all but end the Ravens’ chances of repeating as division champs. “We’re kind of in a corner, but you’re always in a corner,” coach John Harbaugh said. “How we handle it will be what’s remembered.” The Ravens are teetering on the edge of a cliff. The Bengals are poised to give them a hefty push. “This game is more important to them,” Cincinnati left tackle Andrew Whitworth said.

“We realize we have a chance to go in and take control of our division.” Five things to know about the Bengals-Ravens matchup: ATKINS OUT: The Bengals will play their first full game without standout defensive tackle Geno Atkins, who tore his right ACL in a loss to Miami on Oct. 31. “Geno is definitely the one guy who has stood out for them,” Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said. “It’s a shame that he’s not going to be able to be out there, and I’m sure that

will affect them in some way. But they’ve got a bunch of guys over there that can get after the quarterback.” Brandon Thompson replaced Atkins against Miami and finished with seven tackles. RICE GROUNDED: The Ravens hope running back Ray Rice returns to form against a team he’s dominated in the past. Rice has only 259 yards rushing this season and is averaging a paltry 2.7 yards per carry. But he averages 5.0 yards per carry in 10 career games

against Cincinnati, and his eight rushing touchdowns are the most against any team. “I still believe we’ll get the run game going,” Rice said. “We have the guys. We’ve just seen some pretty good fronts and I’ve battled through some stuff (including a hip flexor injury) this year.” S T R E A K I N G OFFENSE: Dalton and Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green are on a roll. Dalton has topped the 300-yard mark in yards passing in four straight games and Green can set a team record Sunday with his fifth consecutive game of at least 100 yards receiving. Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, who doesn’t often praise the opposition, said of Dalton: “He’s one of the best in the game. His record says it and his numbers say it.” Dalton’s run of 300-yard games is a franchise record, and he’s on pace to break Carson Palmer’s singleseason record of 4,131 yards passing (2009). HOME RUN: The Ravens play four of the next five games at home, one reason why they’re hopeful of making a belated playoff run. Baltimore is 8-1 at home in November since the start of the 2008 season and 35-8 overall under Harbaugh at M&T Stadium. “It’s always a big advantage here,” Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees said. “This crowd is the best I’ve ever been around in all the years I’ve coached.” INJURY REPORT: The Bengals defense will miss Atkins and will likely be without linebacker Rey Maualuga (concussion/ knee). Whitworth (knee) should return, as should running back Giovani Bernard, who left the Miami game with bruised ribs. Cornerback Jimmy Smith (thigh) and wide receiver Brandon Stokley (thigh) are iffy for Baltimore.

Miami County Humane Society Agent Sharon Karns looks over several animals, including a beagle at a home in the county recently.

For the love of the animals Miami County Humane Society continues to serve community Melody Vallieu

Staff Writer

Someone has to be the voice of those who cannot speak for themselves. In Miami County, it’s the Miami County Humane Society our furry friends have on their side. The humane society, an allvolunteer organization that is overseen by a board of trustees, provides services for all types of pets, domestic animals and livestock, according to longtime member Sharon Karns. Karns has volunteered as the sole humane agent in Miami County for the last 15 years, and said she continues to do so for the love of the animals. “Someone has to be a voice for the animals. Being a humane agent isn’t just about being humane to the animals, it’s about being humane to the people, too,” Karns said. “I’ve rarely come across people that are purposely being mean to their animals, most of the time they are uneducated or miseducated.” The organization is funded by memberships, grants and donations and does not maintain a building or office. One program the Miami County Humane Society provides is spay/neuter services through a low-cost clinic for cats, hosted by the Miami County Animal Shelter.

Vouchers also are available at local veterinarian offices in the county to help offset the cost of spaying/neutering, in hopes of keeping the homeless pet population down. Karns said since its inception, the society has helped more than 5,000 cats and dogs through the spay/ neuter program. The society’s TNR (trap, neuter, return) of cat colonies, which has been proven as the only true cost effective means of controlling the homeless cat population, also has helped to reduce the number of feral and homeless cats in the county. “Feral and stray cats are a huge problem in the county and they are destructive,” Karns said. “People tend to feed them in town. Those cats that may not be diseased to start with, but are carrying diseases that they have become immune to, then share food bowls and they pass the diseases on to others.” Karns said putting out food for the cats also can attract other unwanted wildlife, such as raccoons and even coyotes. “If you are going to feed them, only put down enough food that they can eat in a few minutes and keep the dishes clean to prevent spreading diseases,” Karns said. The organization also provides services to people with disabilities and low-income families to aid in obtaining veterinarian care for their animals.

Miami County Humane Society Agent Sharon Karns cradles a macaw — one of 16 exotic birds rescued Sept. 6, 2011, from the property of Daniel Ratcliff in Union Township. Miami County Humane Society President Richard Karns follows her to a waiting trailer.

Sharon Karns conducts a welfare check on several horses on a farm in the county Thursday.

“If they can’t afford it, we can pay the initial office visit for an ailing pet,” Karns said. ”Then it’s on a case-by-case basis and on a varying level based on income if we can continue to help.” She said if those with a sick pet can’t pay for veterinary services beyond the humane society’s help, because they are too expensive and there are no other options, the humane society will pay for euthanasia. “Rather than just letting the animal suffer,” she said. The humane society members also provide services to the public such as pet visits to nursing homes and school education programs. When it comes to investigating allegations of animal abuse, Karns said she thinks the humane society is misunderstood. Often she said the organization is confused with the Miami County Animal Shelter, which is a county agency with paid employees that is overseen by county commissioners, and is responsible for issuing citations and prosecution of abuse or neglect of dogs and cats and

for the containment of stray and abandoned dogs and cats. It is the humane society’s job to investigate allegations of abuse or neglect of all types of animals per the Ohio Revised Code, and prosecute abusers as necessary. Investigations must follow due process of the law and maintain the rights of both the animal and the owner, Karns said. “A humane agent is not out here to crucify people. If it means we need to educate, then we educate,” Karns said. “If they need a little help, we are here to help them.” She said she believes TV programs such as animal police shows do an injustice to organizations like the humane society by leading people to believe the process is as easy as just removing an animal from a situation deemed inhumane. “People think I can swoop in and just take an animal, but I can’t. I have to have a court order and be able to prove they would be better off taken away from the owner,” said Karns, who said she has the same authority as a sheriff’s deputy

to arrest and jail suspects of abuse if necessary. “It’s called evidence. The evidence has to be there to present in court.” She said many times an investigation is a catch-22 situation where neighbors, friends or family will be helping take care of the very animals they believe are being abused. In that case, Karns said, the animals are well-fed, healthy animals, and she unfortunately has no case. “My hands are tied, I don’t have a court case if they are being taken care of,” she said Karns said about 85-90 percent of the cases she investigates are horses. She said lack of shelter and care, including food, water and hoof health are the main reasons she gets reports to look into an animals’ living situation. People should call the humane society when they see a situation deteriorating, according to Karns. Animals, minus slaughter animals, are required to have shelter from the elements. She said trees count as shelter in the summer See LOVE | B2

utes becomes equal in value to the bounty of July.” Frankly, I feel the same way. November has long been one of my favorite months. And yes, I do realize that even among the outdoor set, I’m a member of a very small minority. No doubt part of November’s public relations problem stems from its unpredictability—the fact we never quite know what to make of this step-child month — dayto-day, week-to-week, year-toyear … sometimes even hourto-hour. Part of our November indifference, I suspect, comes from the inability to reasonably define with even a modicum of certainty the character of the month’s thirty days. We moderns dearly love everything to be neat and tidy, on schedule, behaving as expected. This then allows us the self-delusion of control. November simply doesn’t play our game, choosing instead to thumb its nose at


our desire for authority and order. November is a wild child, a changeling, moody, erratic, whimsical, refusing to be pigeon-holed. Often more capricious and mercurial than volatile March. A day can start off bright and sunny, shirtsleeve warm, then turn cloudy, with rising wind, soon begin drizzling, see rain change to sleet as temperatures plummet, and finish up with a full-blown snowstorm. From balmy to bitter in the space of a few hours! A friend once sagely observed that during November, it is entirely possible to get sunburned and frostbit over the course of a single day. So where does that leave us? How should we view this misnamed, overlooked, eleventh month? Well, we can mutter and whine, disdain and ignore, and old November will go right on being exactly what it is, whether we like it or not. Or we can embrace its spirit and spontaneity, welcome its vir-

tues and opportunities, savor its wonders and joys. Why live our days as a slave to habit and predictability? Where’s the adventure? Forget schedule… think serendipity. November may not always serve up the days you’d prefer, but you’ll never be bored. November is a transition month. It brings down the last bright-colored leaves, scattering them in deep, browning heaps upon the earth. A time when the wind renews it elemental voice … and is sometimes joined by the musical calling of wild geese on the wing. The slanting light is muted, often infused with the silky shimmer of a river pearl. There’s a special beauty to be found throughout this forgotten month — a unique, at times magical beauty. But one you’ll never notice it if you’re too busy finding fault. November isn’t just about Thanksgiving. I say be thankful for the entire month!

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Donald DeVault wonders what kind of memories his Triumph motorcycle helped make in the 46 years since it was stolen, and he’s looking forward to making more of his own when it’s returned. The 73-year-old Omaha man learned last week that California authorities had recovered his 1953 Triumph Tiger 100 at the Port of Los Angeles. The bike was about to be shipped to Japan when U.S. Customs & Border Protection agents who checked the vehicle identification number discovered the motorcycle had been reported stolen in February 1967. DeVault said he is eager to get the bike back, but he thinks investigators may be even more excited than him about the motorcycle’s

recovery. DeVault had had the bike for only a year or two when it was taken from his fenced backyard. “I really want to protect it this time,” DeVault said. “I’m sure there’s people out there that would want to take it away.” The bike was valued at $300 when in 1967. The shipping documents listed its value today at $9,000. DeVault already has a HarleyDavidson and a Kawasaki motorcycle in his garage, so he plans to reserve the Triumph for special rides. DeVault said he’s talked about the motorcycle over the years whenever he was around bikers. It had a couple features unusual for Triumphs made in the early 1950s, such as its hardtail frame.

DeVault recalls Marlon Brando riding a similar Triumph bike in the movie “The Wild One,” and after that it seemed like everyone wanted to ride a motorcycle. But DeVault said he was already riding motorcycles by the time the movie came out, and continued riding for much of his life. What sold him on the Triumph was the blue color and the name “Li’l Blue Bitch” airbrushed on the side of the gas tank. A friend with a trucking company is helping DeVault arrange to ship the motorcycle home from California. Once he gets it back in a couple weeks, DeVault plans to have someone restore the bike’s name and paint “46 Years Later” on the gas tank.

because they have leaves, but not during the winter because of the lack of leaves. “If you see a horse doesn’t have shelter in summer, don’t wait until there’s a near blizzard. Tell me when it’s weather I can help them in,” Karns said. Karns said she has taken her fair share of criticism over the years, but wants people to know that she must abide by the laws and that she always has the animals’ best interest at heart. “Just don’t judge by what you see, because you don’t really know

what is going on,” she said. “Somebody has to be their voice. While some people may not think I do the best job, I do the best job I can at the time.” The Miami County Humane Society has need for donations and volunteers to help provide humane care for animals that will allow them a safe, healthy, happy life as long as possible.

Adkins: Christmas album worth the wait Jim Davis

Civitas Media

Trace Adkins could have made a sleigh full of Christmas albums by this point in his career, but he wanted to wait until he could make one the way he felt a holiday album should sound. Nearly 20 years into a recording career that has seen the tall Louisiana native garner numerous industry awards and membership in the Grand Ole Opry, Adkins is finally seeing that desire take flight. Adkins released “The Kings Gift” Oct. 29 on Caliburn Records — his first ever Christmas album, and will support the release with an 18-city concert tour that includes a Dec. 3 stop at Troy’s Hobart Arena. “The Christmas album idea came many years ago, 15 or so,” Adkins said during a recent interview with the Troy Daily News. “I was approached about doing a Christmas record and I said OK, but I said I wanted

to make the kind of Christmas record that I wanted to make.” Each time the subject came up, Adkins said he was met with resistance. “I said I want to make a very traditional record. I wanted it to sound like the way these songs may have been performed 100 years ago in Europe, or maybe Scotland or in Ireland — with that Celtic kind of feel and that instrumentation,” he remembered. “They said ‘We want

‘Jingle Bells’ and ‘Frosty the Snowman,’ and I said ‘I don’t want to do that.’ So I put it on the back burner.” Until recently. “My music director, Jon Coleman, asked me how come we’ve never done a Christmas album, and I told him I had always intended to,” Adkins said. “So he said ‘I’m going to push you.’ And then I talked to Michael Spriggs about doing the album, and Michael

is an acoustic guitar player in Nashville who is from the Isle of Man and he has done several Celtic instrumental albums.” Next thing he knew, Adkins — who helped raise more than $1.5 million dollars for the Wounded Warrior Program and The American Red Cross when he won NBC’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice — was in the studio putting together the Christmas album he’d always dreamed of. “Musically, it’s the most beautiful project I’ve ever been a part of,” he said. “The production, the arrangement of these songs … I’m just amazed. I can’t believe it’s my record.” A collection of 10 Celticflavored songs, “The Kings Gift,” features Adkins on 10-hand-picked songs with a star-studded list of guest artists. “We did it by committee and did a lot of research,” Adkins explained. “We listened to the songs … and some of them it was just the historical relevance of them that I found amazing,” he said. “Two of the melodies

are over 900 years old. We’ve been recording music for about 100 years, so for these melodies to be passed down over the centuries is incredible.” The album features classics ranging from “Tannenbaum” and “O Come Emmanuel” to “Silent Night,” “We Three Kings” and and “Oh Holy Night” — complete with traditional instrumentation and appearances by Kevin and Lily Costner, The Chieftans featuring Alyth McCormack, Emma Stevens, Sonya Isaacs and legendary drummer Kenny Aranoff. “Everybody brought their ‘A’ game to this project,” Adkins added. “It was a joy doing it. It came out exactly the way I had envisioned it and the way I hoped it would sound.” To learn more about Trace Adkins, visit his website at For ticket information about Adkins’ upcoming show at Hobart Arena or any other events at the Troy landmark, go to or call 339-2911.

The rough road to ‘Armstrong Lie’ what he wanted it to do,” said Gibney. “He wanted his fans back. It didn’t work out that way. But I was moving forward with other people like Betsy (Andreu, who appears in the film). I think that was the reason he ultimately agreed to sit down: He wanted to feel a sense of control over his story and

he knew that without his voice, things might go worse.” “You have to call a fraud a fraud,” said Betsy Andreu in a phone call from her home in Dearborn, Mich. “Lance tried to use cancer to shield himself, but in my opinion, that is how he got the cancer — using all of those drugs. Growth

hormones fuel cancer” — a theory increasingly supported by medical research. Has Armstrong tainted the cycling world forever? “That’s the hard part,” said Gibney. “We want (athletes) to be superhuman, but we are surprised when they dope. That, to some extent, is where it

falls back on us.” Though Armstrong has no plans to see the film — he sent his representatives instead — the disgraced cyclist will receive a small portion of the film’s profits. “When the original deal was made with Sony, Lance had a financial participation,” Gibney explained, thus entitling

Armstrong to a backend deal with the new film. Last interviewed by cycling site Velo News, Armstrong said in an October article he will “pay a heavy price” for what he’s done. But moving forward, he said, “Folks should expect the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.”

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — When Alex Gibney set out to make a movie about cyclist Lance Armstrong’s 2009 Tour de France comeback, the documentarian admits he bought into the hype: The man who’d cheated death was coming back to reign supreme — and clean. “All of us fans wanted to believe,” said Gibney, who directed this summer’s well-received documentary “We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks.” ”You want to root for people. That is what sports are all about.” In fact, it was such a positive project, Armstrong himself was a financial participant. Then in 2011, things changed. The “feel-good movie,” as Gibney called the original version, was nearly finished when Armstrong ’s ex-teammates, Tyler Hamilton and Floyd Landis, began going public about Armstrong’s doping. That same year, Armstrong faced a U.S. government investigation into doping allegations. Then in 2012, a federal Anti-Doping Agency report alleged Armstrong and his U.S. Postal Service-sponsored team used performanceenhancing drugs. It had become all too clear — Gibney needed to change the fabric of his film. What had been titled “The Road Back” became “The Armstrong Lie,” which opens Friday. “It was a lie that was hiding in plain sight,” said Gibney. “But you don’t want to doubt.” Suspicions about Armstrong’s drug use actually began to surface in 2005, after former Armstrong teammate Frankie Andreu and his wife, Betsy, testified in a lawsuit about a drug confession they heard Armstrong make while hospitalized in 1996 during his bout with cancer. (Armstrong later did his best to ostracize Frankie Andreu from the cycling world.) “Most of the facts had been revealed a long time ago,” said Gibney in a recent interview at a Beverly Hills hotel. “The question was if they had been revealed, then how did Lance maintain that they weren’t true? That is what the film is about.” Sitting with Oprah Winfrey in January of this year, Armstrong admitted to using performanceenhancing drugs to win the Tour de France seven times, titles that have since been revoked. Gibney was there as the interview was shot and insisted that Armstrong come clean in front of his camera, too. “A long interview was hard to get in the wake of Oprah because that interview hadn’t done for him

cent last week, which was the lowest level in four months. The average on the 15-year fixed mortgage rose to 3.27 percent from 3.20 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 long-term interest rates low. Slower hiring in recent months has many analysts predicting that

primary investment,” says Jerry Basford, a personal finance professor and associate vice president for business and auxiliary services at the University of Utah. A young professional seeking career advancement might not want to stay put for the five to 10 years it usually takes to see a return on the investment, Basford says. “Many people still believe purchasing a home is the ultimate way to show that you’re financially stable. And today, for a lot of young people, that may not be,” he says. Real estate professionals such as Pipkin remain optimistic about property investments. Prices are improving in some areas, and mortgage rates have risen, but are still low by historical standards. “If you’re going to look at it as a long-term investment, usually things do work out,” Pipkin says. Skip out on a few bucks’ worth of maintenance, and you might set yourself back thousands in the long run.

the Fed will maintain the current pace of the bond purchases into early next year, which should keep mortgage rates low for the time being. The recent drop in mortgage rates could help boost home sales, which slowed in September after rates reached their highest averages in two years. The decline in sales has also affected price gains. Real estate data provider CoreLogic said Tuesday that a measure of U.S. home prices

Buyers need to carefully evaluate their finances before they begin house hunting, and then be honest with their real estate agent about what their income, savings and credit affords them, she says. That also means factoring in supplemental expenses such as taxes, insurance, repairs and homeowners association fees. Insurance and tax alone sometimes exceed the principal and interest of the loan, says Randy Lovitt, president of Century Title Inc., a title company in Metairie, La. “And expect that component of your payment to go up constantly over time. Insurance goes up, and taxes never go down,” he says. The housing meltdown called into question the long-held belief that individuals can build wealth through homeownership. Experts say you have to be savvy about the notion of a personal residence as an investment. “A house is certainly part of your portfolio, but it should not be your

Your dream house can send you to the poorhouse

Riding out the life cycle of a mortgage isn’t for the faint of heart — or wallet. It can cost big bucks to buy, maintain, renovate and sell a home. And if you’re not careful, your dream house could send you to the poorhouse. Intensifying the sting from those expenses is the still-shaken real estate market, in which property values are slowly recovering from a historic downturn. Even with all those factors in play, owning a house doesn’t have to be your undoing, experts say. But the perils of homeownership can get the best of you if you fall prey to any of these five scenarios. As a general rule of real estate, the higher the listing price, the more impressive the home will be. So if you don’t want to blow your budget, avoid looking at houses above your price range in the first place, SHNS Photo says Patricia Pipkin, a Realtor in Dennis and Shelly Zuzek updated the kitchen and dining and liv- Santa Fe, N.M., and a regional vice ing rooms of their 1960s-era home with the help of builder Bjorn president for the Chicago-based National Association of Realtors.

rose only slightly in September from August, a sign that prices are leveling off after big gains earlier this year. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country on Monday through Wednesday each week. The average doesn’t include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage rose to 0.8 point from 0.7 point. The fee for a 15-year loan was unchanged at 0.7 point. The average rate on a one-year adjustable-rate mortgage fell to 2.61 percent from to 2.64 percent. The fee remained at 0.5 point. The average rate on a five-year adjustable mortgage was steady at 2.96 percent. The fee edged up to 0.5 point from 0.4 point.

SHNS — During the 15 years they’ve lived in their home, Shelly and Dennis Zuzek have made a lot of improvements. But there was one feature that new finishes and fixtures couldn’t fix: a 1963 floor plan with a wall and a bank of hanging cabinets that separated the kitchen from the main living space. Shelly, who loves to entertain, felt “trapped” every time they had people over. “I didn’t feel a part of it,” she said. When guests did venture into the kitchen, they ended up blocking access in and out of the room. “I had no mobility.” Shelly admired the open kitchens she saw

Home beer and spirit-making have become popular hobbies. Bars and beverage stores feature a growing range of artisanal spirits and craft brews. Cocktail parties are back in vogue. And retailers are responding to all this imbibing by offering furniture, barware and accessories with cosmopolitan flair. All you need are a few invitations, snacks and some good music for the party to begin. Let’s pop the cork on what’s new: “Nowadays, entertaining does not have to mean having a glitzy full bar. Bar carts have become more delicate, refined, and smaller in scale, so you can tuck them into a corner of a room or blend them in with the rest of the furniture,” says Veranda magazine’s market editor Catherine Lee Davis. West Elm’s Parker slim-profile cart in acorn-stained walnut veneer with brass rail trim has a mid-century vibe.

another 1960s throwback: the split entry, which had almost been a deal-breaker when the couple first looked at the house. “We made a list of the features we did and didn’t want,” Shelly recalled. No. 1 on the unwanted list was a split entry. “I didn’t really like the look.” But the Edina, Minn., property had other features that won them over, including a generous lot just blocks from the elementary school their kids would attend, with plenty of room in the backyard for the pool they wanted to add. “The space was very workable,” Dennis said.

NEW YORK (AP) — Kate Mulgrew has figured out a way to introduce her two great passions, acting and writing, to each other: She’s working on a memoir. Little, Brown and Company announced a deal Thursday with Mulgrew, t h e actress known for her roles in “ S t a r T r e k : Voyager” a n d “ R y a n ’ s Mulgrew Hope.” The 58-year-old Mulgrew will tell the story of being an unmarried mother who gave up her daughter for adoption during the start of her career, her reunion with her daughter in 2001 and “the costs and rewards of a passionate life.” The book is untitled and scheduled to come out in May 2015. Mulgrew also stars in the Netflix series “Orange is the New Black” and has been in such stage productions as “Tea at Five” and “Equus.”

News and info shows explore JFK anniversary NEW YORK (AP) — “Don’t let it be forgot,” goes the plaintive song from “Camelot.” It won’t be, at least not on TV, where the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination and the end of an era posthumously christened Camelot, is being remembered this month. More than a dozen new documentary and information specials are among the crop of TV commemorations pegged to this halfcentury mark of a weekend when, as viewers will be reminded again and again, everything changed. For anyone who has watched JFK anniversary programming at previous milestones (for instance, there were more than a dozen such shows in 2003), the categories will be familiar. There are the tick-tock shows, tracking the final hours of Kennedy and/or his alleged assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald: n “The Final Hours” (National Geographic Channel, Friday at 8 p.m. EST) boasts firsthand accounts of Kennedy’s trip to Dallas, narrated by actor Bill Paxton, a native Texan who as a child was on hand to see Kennedy and is captured in a photo of a crowd watching the president speak. n “‘Secrets of the Dead’: JFK: One PM Central Standard Time” (PBS, Nov. 13 at 10 p.m. EST) is one of the odder specials on tap. It’s no less a valentine to CBS anchor Walter Cronkite than to Kennedy, as it tries to draw parallels between the two men while

portraying Cronkite, and how he led CBS’ coverage, as the journalist-in-chief of the American press corps. n “As It Happened: John F. Kennedy 50 Years” (CBS, Nov. 16 at 9 p.m. EST) is anchored by Bob Schieffer, who covered the story in Dallas that weekend. n “The Day Kennedy Died” (Smithsonian Channel, Nov. 17 at 9 p.m. EST). n “JFK: The Lost Tapes” (Discovery, Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. EST) supplements the tragic sequence of events with newly released audio recordings from Air Force One and remastered on-the-scene audio from the Dallas Police Department and other sources. n “Lee Harvey Oswald: 48

Hours to Live” (History, Nov. 22 at 10 p.m. EST). n “Capturing Oswald” (Military Channel, Nov. 12 at 10 p.m. EST) pays methodical tribute to Dallas police for their swift arrest of Oswald, arguably glossing over Oswald’s murder two days later while in the department’s custody. This special is coproduced by Kate Griendling, the granddaughter of Jim Leavelle, who was the white-hatted detective handcuffed to Oswald when Jack Ruby shot him. Another category of JFK coverage inevitably dwells on the questions that persist surrounding the assassination: n “JFK: The Smoking Gun” (Reelz, repeating throughout November) is based on the

Amy Tan tells sweeping tale in new book “The Valley of Amazement” (Ecco), by Amy Tan The prolific and award-winning Amy Tan has delivered yet another sweeping tale of mothers and daughters that spans continents and generations. “The Valley of Amazement” begins in Shanghai in the early 1800s where she introduces readers to Lucia Minturn, who owns a high-end courtesan house, and her daughter, Violet, who grows up there among the women and their customers. Through choice — or perhaps by accident — Violet ends up abandoned in Shanghai while her mother

sets sail for San Francisco. Left with few options, Violet reinvents herself as a wealthy and much sought-after half-white, half-Chinese courtesan. As she learns and later plies her trade, Tan brings to life a world with which few are familiar. And it’s fascinating. Her descriptions of the countryside, of the houses, of the lifestyle and the customers are well-drawn and multi-layered. Her characters are brought to life as three-dimensional, complicated people. The only distraction from the near-perfect pacing is the occasional overwrought language — particu-

larly when it comes to sex and intimacy: “We conjoined and separated, conjoined and separated, so that we could have the joy of looking into each other’s eyes before falling into each other again.” Then again, the language may sound awkward only to modern ears. Readers also may find themselves wondering throughout “The Valley of Amazement” whether they hadn’t already read this book. It covers no new ground and offers no surprises, but in Tan’s skilled hands that doesn’t detract from the joy of reading it.

Chess, rubber duck inducted into Toy Hall of Fame ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — The rubber duck squeaked out a win for a place in the National Toy Hall of Fame, joining the ancient game of chess in the 2013 class inducted Thursday. The pair beat out 10 other finalists: bubbles, the board game Clue, Fisher-Price Little People, little green Army men, the Magic 8 Ball, My Little Pony, Nerf toys, the Pac-Man video game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the scooter. Online polls had Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and My Little Pony running strong, but in the end a national selection committee made up of 23 experts, including toy collectors, designers and psychologists, voted in the winners. “The two inductees … are fantastic examples of the two extremes in the world of play,” said Christopher Bensch, vice president for collections at The Strong Museum, which houses

Scanlon, of Rochester, N.Y., Sarah Peters, of Pittsford, N.Y., and Shawn Gray, of Henrietta, N.Y., stage a fight during the National Toy Hall of Fame ceremony at the National Museum of Play at The Strong in Rochester, N.Y., Thursday.

the 15-year-old hall. “One is so strategic. It’s ruledriven. It’s something that adults

play and puzzle over,” Bensch said, “and at the other extreme is a toy that’s pure fun. It has no

rules. No one wins or loses. You squeeze it. You float it. It’s so silly, so fun.” Anyone can nominate a toy for the hall of fame, but to make it through the selection process and become a finalist a toy must have achieved icon status, survived through generations, foster learning, creativity or discovery and have profoundly changed play or toy design. “If there is a game you can call classic, this is that game,” said curator Nicolas Ricketts as he introduced chess during an induction ceremony that featured the unveiling of chess- and rubber duck-themed cartoons by syndicated cartoonist Leigh Rubin. Chess can be traced back centuries to an ancient Indian war game, but evolved into the game it is today by 1475, Ricketts said. “In 1779, Benjamin Franklin wrote that playing this game inspires habits of foresight, cir-

cumspection and caution, all important traits in human life,” he said. “Scholars today still study the effect of this game’s play on the childhood brain and development.” The rubber duck “has been a fixture in pop culture for decades,” curator Patricia Hogan said. Although rubber toys first appeared in the late 1880s, no one knows exactly who hatched the idea of the rubber duck, museum officials said. They weren’t always meant for the bath — the first ones didn’t float — but Ernie on “Sesame Street” secured its place in the tub with his 1970 ode, “Rubber Duckie.” The song made it to No. 16 on the Billboard Top 40 chart. To date, 53 toys are in the National Toy Hall of Fame, including alphabet blocks, the jump rope, playing cards, Scrabble and the stick.
