‘Thank you, thank you for your service’ Melanie Yingst

Staff Writer

TROY — Bob Studebaker stood alongside his grandson, Devin, as they observed the city of Troy’s Veteran’s Day ceremony at Riverside Cemetery as the cool, crisp wind whipped between the gravestones on Monday. As a veteran who served in Vietnam with the Air Force, Studebaker said he felt it was an exercise in respect to take his grandson to the services on Monday. “You learn what it’s all about — what it means to serve your country,” Studebaker Troy Christian Schools said after the ceremony. “You welcomed veterans have to show those who Monday for a Veterans served our country your admiDay chapel at the school. ration because they deserve our respect.” Guest speaker 2nd Lt.

here and thanking the veterans for their service.” Studebaker said his grandson has taken an interest in the military and felt it was important for his grandson to attend the Veteran’s Day ceremony as a “good experience for him to learn what respect is all about,” noting that when he served in the Vietnam War, being a servicemen wasn’t “very popular.” “At eleven in the morning on the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918, the guns on the Western Front fell silent, as an armistice between the allied powers and Germany took effect.” City of Troy Mayor Michael Beamish proclaimed that patriotism is alive and well in Troy, naming over several ceremonies including Van Cleve Sixth Grade’s Veteran’s Day breakfast and observance last week and other honorable events. “We want to say thank you, we will say thank you,” Beamish said. “We all need to say thank you.” Beamish encouraged

attendees to “keep our veterans in our thoughts and prayers” and for veterans to share their stories with their families and beyond to keep the connection of those how have and serving to “protect and defend the future of our world.” “Look around to all and say thank you, thank you for your service,” Beamish said in closing. Douglas Wagner, a 2005 Troy High School graduate and current E-4 specialist in the Army Reserves, said he has attended the city of Troy’s Veteran’s Day ceremony for the last couple of years. “I come just to give my respect to people before me,” Wagner said. “I had people in each generation of my family serve and this just show them the respect they all deserve.” Wagner, who served 15 months in Iraq, said he enjoys hearing the stories of veterans, and will attend the city’s ceremony each year he can as long as he is not in active duty. “It’s definitely a good experience,” Wagner said.

Les Rose, left, and Jay Via, who served in Afghanistan at different times, decided to go for an early morning run on Veterans Day beginning at Veterans Memorial Park in Riverside Cemetery in Troy. Both said they had good response during the run. “We’re not doing it for the reaction, we’re doing it to honor all veterans,” Rose said. After more than 13 miles, they ended the run back where it began at the memorial.

Byers named regional content director TROY — Veteran newspaper executive Joshua Byers has been named regional content director for a group of newspapers in Ohio owned by Civitas Media, including the Piqua Daily Call and Troy Daily News. The announcement was made Wednesday by Jim Lawitz, director of content for the company. Byers will lead the editorial operations for the newspapers, which include markets along the Interstate 75 corridor. He will be based in Troy and his responsibilities will include playing an active role in Troy’s community affairs. “Josh’s depth and breadth of experience will serve him well in his new role,” said Lawitz. “I’m pleased to have Byers his leadership at our publications during this exciting period in our industry.” Prior to his promotion, Byers served as the regional editor for seven West Virginia and Kentucky publications owned by Civitas. Under his leadership, the newspapers won numerous industry awards including first places in special sections, editorials and continuing coverage. “Whether it was waiting on the front porch for the afternoon newspaper growing up or writing front-page news stories, journalism has always been a part of my life,” Byers said. “What really excites me about our industry is the depth with which we now have to tell stories. The Internet allows us to tell stories on many more levels.” Byers will be relocating to the area with his wife, Barbara, and their three boys, Cade, Jaekob and Jackston. “We as a company are committed to expanding and improving our core content

in digital and print,” Lawitz said. “Josh is the perfect person to lead the charge at these Ohio newspapers.” Byers, a native of Syracuse, N.Y., graduated in 1995 from the College of Charleston, in Charleston, S.C., with a bachelor’s degree in media communication/journalism. He began his newspaper career at the Roswell (N.M.) Daily Record. “The Record was where I really got to learn some of the basic tenants of journalism from New Mexico Journalism Hall of Fame Editor Jerry McCormick,” he said. Byers has previously held leadership positions with MediaNews Group and Gannett Co. “I’m excited about this new opportunity,” he said. “Civitas Media has a strong commitment to excellent community journalism, and I look forward to working with Jim and the rest of our team of content producers in the exciting months and years to come.” Centrally located in Davidson, N.C., Civitas Media encompasses more than 100 publications, many of which have served their communities for more than a century. Civitas, Latin for “community” or citizen” is a union of four media entities formerly known as Heartland Publications, Freedom Central, Impressions Media and Ohio Community Media. Civitas, which employs more than 1,400 associates across 11 states including North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Kentucky and Tennessee, publishes 35 daily, 28 weekend editions and 63 weekly publications for a combined circulation of more than 1.6 million.

TROY — As originally charged, convicted sex offender Ed Cotrell stood faced the maximum prison penalty of life in prison for rape accusations alleged by a Cotrell 9-year-old child. On Tuesday in common pleas court, Cotrell was sentenced to 60 days in jail and a two-

year term of probation by Common Pleas Court Judge Christopher Gee. In addition, Cotrell was labelled as a tier II sex offender, which means he has to register as such every 180 days in the county where he resides, works or receives an education for the next 25 years.

Committee recommends to move forward with Hobart Arena study The $75,000 study will move forward to city council for approval Melanie Yingst

Staff Writer

TROY — Members of the parks and recreation committee approved to proceed with funding a feasibility study of Hobart Arena and recommended emergency action at the next city council meeting on Nov. 18. Robin Oda, Alan Clark and Doug Tremblay recommended to fund the feasibility study costs not to exceed $75,000 from Crossroads Consulting Services of Tampa, Fla., the firm chosen to conduct the study. Patrick Titterington, city of Troy public safety and service director, said the $75,000 study is part of 2014 budget for Hobart Arena. Titterington said the study will provide the city officials a detail analysis of the Hobart Arena’s physical infrastructure and layout and recommend how to modernize the arena to continue to serve the community as a

multi-use facility. Titterington said the arena, built in 1950, was renovated in mid-1990s. Titterington noted that for Hobart Arena to “continue to the next level” the study was needed to see what renovation would be needed to be done. Titterington said Crossroads Consulting Services was the “best fit for us” to conduct the study. “The end result is we (will) get a cost benefit to make the best use of the facility,” Titterington said, noting that the report from the company would take up to five months if approved by council. Titterington also said the study would be marked as an “emergency” on the agenda in for future planning for the arena’s budget and if bond funds would need to be secured in the future as well to fund a possible renovation See STUDY | 2

Study From page 1 project. Titterington said as of now, “bond return rates are historically low.” The feasibility study’s “Scope of Work” includes: a tour of the arena in detail and condition assessment, facility condition assessment with a comprehensive evaluation of the existing state of Hobart Arena with a professional review and evaluation; an on-site facility condition assessment field work when an event is being held at Hobart Arena to obtain first-hand experience regarding facility operations and functionality; compare physical attributes of Hobart to three recently designed similar venues; guest experience review on guest amenities including seating, parking, staff and ticketing options. Crossroads will provide an analysis of Hobart Arena’s strengths and weaknesses from both a physical and competitive market perspective and include future opportunities and threats to the arena. The study will include an economic impact analysis and cost/ benefit analysis as well. No detailed architectural or design serves will be perform as part of this study. Chairwoman Robin Oda asked why the feasibility study included travel expenses for the study and why no other firm was selected closer to the city. Titterington said travel expenses were “typical expenses” for consultant firms like Crossroads, which is based in Tampa, Fla. Oda, along with Clark, both said they were happy with the Hobart Arena’s continued momentum to bring more people to the Troy area. “I’m very pleased about Hobart’s direction that it is taking,” Clark said. Clark said he was pleased the study was “multi-faceted” and

included an economic impact analysis. Ken Siler, director of the Hobart Arena, along with President of the Recreation board, Marty Hobart, attended the meeting. Siler said the study would help compare the arena to similar venues and help decide what could be done to improve the facility and offer better hospitality services to its visitors. Clark praised Siler for his work at the arena and said Siler and the recreation board were “judicious” with the use of the community’s tax dollars. Siler said the feasibility study will serve as a “map of the future” for Hobart Arena to keep the arena competitive in the entertainment and recreation markets. Siler said Hobart Arena is a “hybrid of recreation/ events facility” and has multiple uses for community events from ice skating competitions, gymnastic and cheer leading tournaments and concerts. Siler said Hobart Arena is similar in size to the outdoor amphitheater of Fraze Pavilion, which hosts summer events. A new outdoor amphitheater will be built soon in Huber Heights and also will hosts summer events. Marty Hobart also noted a new ice rink was built recently in the city of Springfield. “Hobart Arena has a positive economic impact for the city,” Hobart said. “People come here, spend the day shopping, see other amenities Troy has to offer while they are here.” Siler said the arena is limited in the concession areas, hospitality area and backstage corridor for large-scale events. More notable, Siler said the arena’s restroom facility is “not even close” to being enough for large events. “Hobart Arena has been kept in remarkable

Committee members appointed

TROY — Each member of the Troy City Council chairs one committee and serves on two others. The business of council is assigned by the president of council and work is conducted initially at the committee level before moving to full council with a committee recommendation. In preparation for the upcoming term for the years 2014-2015, Troy City Council President Marty Baker has made the following appointments of council members to the following committees: BUILDINGS COMMITTEE Chair: Lynne Snee Committee: Robin Oda, Bobby Phillips COMMUNITY & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE Chair: Bill Twiss Committee: Tom Kendall, John Schweser FINANCE COMMITTEE Chair: Tom Kendall Committee: Doug Tremblay, John Schweser LAW & ORDINANCE COMMITTEE Chair: John Schweser Committee: Lynne Snee, Bobby Phillips PERSONNEL COMMITTEE

The increase in members from seven to nine was dictated by the increase in population. There will be six wards with one representative from each ward, including: First Ward: Tom Kendall; Second Ward: Doug Tremblay; Third Ward: John Schweser; Fourth Ward: Bobby Phillips; Fifth Ward: Bill Twiss; Sixth Ward: Brock Heath In addition, there are three at-large-seats on council held by Lynne Snee, Robin Oda, and Alan Clark.

shape when you see the age that it is,” Siler said. “People come to Hobart Arena and can’t believe what great shape it is in when we tell them how old it is,” Marty Hobart said. ”That’s a testament to staff over the years and the community willing to keep up the arena’s condition over the years.” The committee unanimously recommended to be in favor of the study with emergency designa-

tion at the next city council meeting. In other news, the personnel committee of Alan Clark, Lynne Snee and Bobby Phillips (who was absent, but had read the material) approved to recommend a mandatory state 10 cent per hour increase to entry level step for temporary and seasonal employees. The wage increase beings Jan. 1, and was budgeted for in the 2014 city budget.

2010, and July 3, 2012. Cotrell faced up to three years in prison for his conviction of the lesser charges. Cotrell is to have no contact with the victim, is to have no unsupervised contact with children during his probation and must abide by a court-imposed curfew. Additionally, a sex offender assessment was ordered, and should Cotrell not complete the terms and conditions of his probation he faces 18 months in prison. In agreement with the plea agreement, the state remained silent at the sentencing hearing. Miami County Prosecutor Tony Kendell said the charges were reduced so the vic-

tim would not be further traumatized. He said the yong victim’s “emotional well-being” as a result of the case was considered, which was why the plea agreement was offered in the case. Nevertheless, he was displeased with the sentence in the case. “I have the highest level of respect for the judge, but I am disappointed with the sentence,” Kendell said. Authorities said Cotrell committed the crime at a county park twice in the last two years. Deputies with the Miami County Sheriff’s Office arrested Cotrell after police began investigating allegations of sexual misconduct.

daughter read a statement in court in favor of her father not being sentenced to prison. Originally, he was charged with two counts of rape, a first-degree felony, stemming from his interaction with a child under the age of 10. Under state law, a conviction of a count of rape where a victim is under the age of 10 carries the potential for life in prison. Those charges were later amended to attempted gross sexual imposition, fourthdegree felonies, which he pleaded guilty to Sept. 13. According to his indictment, Cotrell committed the offense against a female child between Nov. 16,

Question: Do you accept Barack Obama’s apology regarding Obamacare?

Watch for final poll results in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News.

Watch for a new poll question in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News


Post-shutdown, pragmatism is in WASHINGTON (AP) — Electability and pragmatism won. Ideology and rigidity lost. In Democratic-leaning New Jersey, voters gave Republican Chris Christie a second term and rewarded him for his bipartisan, get-it-done, inclusive pitch. In swing state Virginia, voters narrowly rejected Republican Ken Cuccinelli’s uncompromising, conservative approach. If there’s a lesson from Tuesday’s off-year elections, it might be that during a time of deep divisions within the Republican Party, staunchly conservative GOP candidates who press ideological positions have difficulty winning general elections in competitive states. Candidates with mainstream appeal like Christie in New Jersey and Democrat Terry McAuliffe in Virginia can overcome obstacles that might trip up others. Christie, in a victory speech aimed at national Republicans, said Americans “angry with their dysfunctional government in Washington” could look to his state as a model for getting things done. “I know that if we can do this in Trenton, New Jersey, maybe the folks in Washington, D.C., should tune in their TVs right now,” Christie said. “See how it’s done.” Christie trounced his Democratic opponent, state Sen. Barbara Buono, offering a template for Republicans who want to win and attract a broad coalition of voters. His re-election, the largest by a Republican governor in New Jersey since 1985, could help him make a case for governing as a conservative without ceding the political middle ahead of a possible presidential bid. In Virginia, McAuliffe held off a late charge by Cuccinelli in a polarizing campaign that exposed liabilities that could drag down both parties next year: President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul for Democrats and a partial government shutdown for Republicans. McAuliffe is a longtime friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton, giving the former secretary of state an important ally should she seek the White House again. In Republican-friendly Alabama, Bradley Byrne, a lawyer backed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, defeated tea party-backed candidate Dean Young in a special GOP primary to succeed retiring Rep. Jo Bonner, R-Ala. Byrne will be the heavy favorite in December to hold onto the congressional seat and gives business groups a victory over the tea party. Far from the intensity of a presidential campaign, the low-turnout elections don’t offer a greater meaning into the nation’s political psyche. But Virginia and New Jersey often give parties clues to the electorate’s mood heading into congressional elections. The backdrop was a partial government shutdown triggered partly by tea party demands and a clunky rollout by the Obama administration of the health care law. In Virginia, exit polls showed that about a third of voters said they were personally affected by the government shutdown, and those who were broke for McAuliffe by nearly 20 points. But Cuccinelli held a narrow edge among those who said health care was their top issue and 53 percent of all Virginia voters said they opposed the health care overhaul passed in 2010. Tea party leaders and social conservatives said the state attorney general’s vociferous opposition to the health care law narrowed the gap — even though it didn’t overcome a fundraising disadvantage. “This has got to be a real wakeup call for the Obama White House and Democrats in general,” said Ralph Reed, chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition. “If the tail of the Obamacare meltdown could have this kind of impact … then I think they need to be really concerned about the red state Democratic seats” in the 2014 Senate elections. Democrats said McAuliffe’s victory — the first in Virginia by a member of the same party holding the White House in nearly four decades — could provide a roadmap for governors’ races in 2014 featuring Republican incumbents in Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and elsewhere. “Virginia is a harbinger for what a challenge the tea party governors are going to have — a referendum on their policies,” said Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin, the chairman of the Democratic Governors Association. Both New Jersey and Virginia offered overtones for the 2016 presidential race. Christie’s advisers were quick to point out that the governor won a majority of women and boosted his support among black and Latino voters, showing that he could compete for voters who comprise Obama’s coalition.

LETTERS To the Editor: As one who remains an avid supporter of school board member-elect Ginny Beamish, in her endeavors to foster a positive future for Troy students; I wish to formally congratulate her on her success during the election. Her victory exemplifies two basic truths that those who know her well, can attest to. First, that Ginny Beamish epitomizes the very essence of public service, sacrifice, and the genuine goodness upon which humankind was founded. These qualities are enhanced by Mrs. Beamish’s indelible wisdom and passion for knowledge of how to improve the lives of her community, colleagues and friends. Secondly, the fact that Ginny Beamish ran

as a write-in candidate, and yet received overwhelming support is a testament to how well her opinions, viewpoints and experience are valued within Troy. In more than 30 years of service to this community and education at several different levels, Ginny Beamish has redefined the standard for education and public service and as such has earned the admiration of countless individuals throughout Troy and the region. Again, I offer my sincerest congratulations to Mrs. Ginny Beamish as a school board member-elect. I believe Troy City Schools will benefit immensely from her wit, wisdom, and drive to make a better future for Troy students. Michael Ham Troy

Can Christie be the Republican Bill Clinton? Troy Troy Daily News

Miami Valley Sunday News

Chris Christie couldn’t have been any more obvious about his 2016 intentions if he had begun his victory speech Nov. 5 with the words “My fellow Americans” and ended it with a balloon drop. He offered New Jersey as an example for national healing. “Tonight,” he said, “a dispirited America, angry with their dysfunctional government in Washington, looks to New Jersey to say ‘Is what I think’s happening really happening? Are people really coming together?’” Trenton, a nation turns its lonely eyes to you. None of this was subtle, but Christie had certainly earned it. Almost every decision he’s made — sometimes shamelessly so — has been geared to making the rubble bounce in his re-election and then using his crushing victory as a credential in an incipient national campaign. He succeeded brilliantly on his own terms. In a state President Barack

Obama won by 17 points in in Massachusetts in his 1994 2012, Christie won 60 percent re-election as governor, then overall. He won Latinos out- lost by 7 points to John Kerry right and took 21 percent of in a 1996 Senate race in which the black vote. He won women the map of Massachusetts and men.

territory, and managing to thrive by co-opting or neutralizing natural enemies. Like the “explainer-inchief,” Christie has a knack for public persuasion. The New Jersey governor’s relentless town halls during the fight for his public-sector reforms were model examples of making an argument fearlessly and effectively. Like Clinton, who so famously felt people’s pain, Christie connects. He has a reputation for confrontation — rightly — but Christie’s emotional range is much broader. His response to Hurricane Sandy was, in part, a great act of empathy. What Clinton had that Christie evidently lacks is a well-thought-out approach to his party’s predicament. As a “New Democrat,” Clinton had a different governing philosophy, expressed in a raft of new policy proposals. Chris Christie has an affect and a style of governance. If Christie’s message to the

GOP is merely that it should look to what he did in the Garden State and be as wonderfully unifying as he is, it deserves to flop. It could come off as boastful and hectoring, and about as original as the average political discussion on NPR. Coupled with his various departures from conservative orthodoxy, it could be toxic. For Christie truly to capitalize on his opportunity, he will need a conservative reform agenda, geared to the bread-and-butter concerns of ordinary voters. In his victory speech, Christie spoke of being “one of you.” As Henry Olsen writes, Christie’s potential is in matching that Everyman appeal with substance. He could set out to make himself a Republican by and for the middle class in a departure for the contemporary party. Congratulations on the big win, governor. Now show us what’s next.

AP Photo Survivors walk in typhoon ravaged Tacloban city, Leyte province, central Philippines on Tuesday. The Philippines emerged as a rising economic star in Asia but the trail of death and destruction left by Typhoon Haiyan has highlighted a key weakness: fragile infrastructure resulting from decades of neglect and corruption.

Aid trickling into hard-hit areas in Philippines TACLOBAN, Philippines (AP) — Desperately needed food, water and medical aid are only trickling into this city that took the worst blow from Typhoon Haiyan, while thousands of victims jammed the damaged airport Tuesday, seeking to be evacuated. “We need help. Nothing is happening. We haven’t eaten since yesterday afternoon,” pleaded a weeping Aristone Balute, an 81-yearold woman who failed to get a flight out of Tacloban for Manila, the capital. Her clothes were soaked from a pouring rain and tears streamed down her face. Five days after what could be the Philippines’ deadliest disaster, aid is coming — pallets of supplies and teams of doctors are waiting to get into Tacloban — but the challenges of delivering the assistance means few in the stricken city have received help. “There is a huge amount that we need to do. We have not been able to get into the remote communities,” U.N. humanitarian chief Valerie Amos said in Manila, launching an appeal for $301 million to help the more than 11 million people estimated to be affected by the storm. “Even in Tacloban, because of the debris and the difficulties with logistics and so on, we have not been able to get in the level of supply that we would want to. We are going to do as much as we can to bring in more,” she said. Her office said she planned to visit the city. Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said relief goods were getting into the city, and the supply should increase now that the airport and a bridge to the island were open. “We are not going to leave one person behind — one living person behind,” he said. “We will help, no matter how difficult, no matter how inaccessible.” Tacloban, a city of about 220,000 people on Leyte island, bore the full force of the winds and the tsunamilike storm surges Friday. Most of the city is in ruins, a tangled mess of destroyed houses, cars and trees. Malls, garages and shops have all been stripped of food and water by hungry residents. The loss of life appears to be concentrated in Tacloban and surrounding areas, including a portion of Samar island that is separated from Leyte island by

a strait. It is possible that other devastated areas are so isolated they have not yet been reached. In Cebu, to the southwest, the Philippine air force has been sending three C-130s back and forth to Tacloban from dawn to dusk, and had delivered 400,000 pounds of relief supplies, Lt. Col. Marciano Jesus Guevara said. A lack of electricity in Tacloban means planes can’t land there at night. Guevara said the C-130s have transported nearly 3,000 civilians out of the disaster zone, and that the biggest problem in Tacloban is a lack of clean drinking water. “Water is life,” he said. “If you have water with no food, you’ll survive.” A team from Médecins Sans Frontières, complete with medical supplies, arrived in Cebu island Saturday looking for a flight to Tacloban, but hadn’t left by Tuesday. A spokesman for the group said it was “difficult to tell” when it would be able to leave. “We are in contact with the authorities, but the (Tacloban) airport is only for the Philippines military use,” Lee Pik Kwan said in a telephone interview. An Associated Press reporter drove through Tacloban for about 7 kilometers (4 miles) and saw more than 40 bodies. There was no evidence of any organized delivery of food, water or medical supplies, though piles of aid have begun to arrive at the airport. Some people lined up to get water from a hose, presumably from the city supply.

Police Reports her under arrest for OVI. Her vehicle was towed by Bushnell’s, the deputy stopped at 207 E. Canal St. to make contact with Jen Davis to pick Ms. Rowley up. Ms. Davis did not have a valid driver’s license but said that Ms. Rowley could be dropped off at her residence. The deputy transported Ms. Rowley to the Sheriff’s Office where she was read her the BMV2255 form and she agreed to take the breath test. She tested .256 BAC. Ms. Rowley was charged with OVI-excess .17, left of center, no seat belt, and red light violation. DRUNK IN THE DRIVEWAY: On Nov. 7, the resident located in the 3000 block of State Route 41, Troy, called 911 and reported that there was a vehicle in her driveway and she wasn’t sure who it was. The resident advised dispatch that she thought it might be her ex-boyfriend but she wasn’t sure. She advised that her ex-boyfriend’s name was Kyle Plymesser and that he drove a blue Nissan Maxima. When the deputy arrived at the residence, he located located a blue Nissan with Ohio registration sitting in the driveway. There was a white male identified as the defendant Kyle E Plymesser in the driver’s seat and it appeared that he was passed out. The deputy then approached the vehicle and noticed that the vehicle was still running and the headlights were on. The deputy then looked inside the vehicle and noticed three open bottles of Bud Light Platinum empty and two that had not been opened. The deputy then began to knock on the passenger window to try and wake Mr. Plymesser up but he didn’t move. The deputy then walked around to the driver’s side and saw that the window was half way down so the deputy reached in and unlocked the door and opened it. While the deputy was doing this he noticed that Mr. Plymesser’s foot was on the brake and was unsure if the vehicle was in drive. The deputy then shined his flashlight in Mr. Plymesser’s face and yelled for him to wake up. After a couple of attempts Mr. Plymesser opened his eyes at which time the deputy ordered him to shut the vehicle off. Mr. Plymesser seemed confused and the deputy had to tell him again to shut the vehicle off and he did. The deputy then asked Mr. Plymesser what he was doing at the residence and he said that he lived there. The deputy then asked Mr. Plymesser how much alcohol he had to drink tonight and he stated “Does it really matter”. The deputy noticed while speaking with Mr. Plymesser that his eyes were bloodshot and the deputy could smell an odor of alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle. The deputy also noticed that Mr. Plymesser was slurring his speech. The deputy then asked Mr. Plymesser for his driver’s license and he pulled out his wallet and the deputy noticed that he was fumbling with it and had trouble pulling out. Mr. Plymesser then

handed the deputy his identification card. The deputy ran Mr. Plymesser through LEADS and found that his driver’s license was under an OVI suspension. The deputy then transported Mr. Plymesser to the Miami County Sheriff’s Office for further testing. After arriving at the office I took the handcuff’s off and asked Mr. Plymesser if he would like to submit to any field sobriety tests. Mr. Plymesser then became agitated and refused. Mr. Plymesser became uncooperative and was handcuffed at the sheriff’s office. The deputy read the BMV2255 form to Mr. Plymesser and he started to yell over me as the deputy was reading it. After reading the form the deputy asked Mr. Plymesser if he understood and he said yes and signed when instructed to. The deputy then asked Mr. Plymesser if he would submit to a breath test and he said he would but he has asthma but he would try. Mr. Plymesser tried to blow several times but would only blow into the machine for a couple of seconds and then stop causing the machine to time out. The deputy then informed Mr. Plymesser that it was going to be marked as a refusal. Mr. Plymesser was then incarcerated in the Miami County Jail on charges of OVI and driving under suspension. Nov. 6 MISSING APPLIANCES: The owner of a property located in the 300 block of Keller St., Bradford, called to file a report in reference to some missing appliances. The complainant owns the listed home and has been renting it out to a Bradford woman. The woman has recently moved out of the house and the owner went to check on the place. The owner noticed that the refrigerator, stove, microwave, washer and dryer are all missing. The owner states that the appliances belong to him and that last tenant was not supposed to take them with her. The owner asked that a Miami County Sheriff’s deputy speak with the last tenant about taking the appliances. The deputy went to the tenant’s new residence and asked her about the items. The former tenant stated that landlord gave the appliances to her when she originally moved in to the rental house. A witness was also present and stated that he was there when the owner told the former tenant that she may have the items as she was moving in. The tenant said that if her former landlord disagrees with that and still wants the items back, she is willing to give them to him upon receiving her next tax return check. She can then go buy new appliances and give the older ones to him. The deputy spoke again with owner and advised him of the above. He states that he did not give the appliances to her and he is not willing to wait until her next tax return. The owner stated that he is likely going to pursue the dispute with her through a civil court suit. He asked for a report to

be filed for documentation of the incident. DRIVING UNDER SUSPENSION: On Nov. 6, while sitting stationary in a marked patrol cruiser on State Route 40, near West Charlestown, the deputy did a random check through L.E.A.D.S on the listed vehicle. After receiving the return, the deputy discovered the register owner was under a noncompliance suspension. The deputy observed the driver matching the description of the register owner and initiated a traffic stop for this violation. The deputy made contact with the driver, who was the register owner, Shannon Pitts. Ms. Pitts informed the deputy that she did not realize she was under suspension. Ms. Pitts was cited for driving under suspension and given a court date. Nov. 9 BIKE PATH POSESSION AND SILVER SPOONS: While patrolling the bike path off Peterson Road towards Piqua, a Miami County Sheriff’s Office deputy came across a parked vehicle. The deputy made contact with the driver, Dustin Reedy, of Piqua. Mr. Reedy was keeping his left hand out of view and when told to show his hands, he dropped an item which then rolled out onto the floor board. The item was a marijuana pipe. Mr. Reedy stated he came down here to fish and he just finished smoking marijuana. Mr. Reedy was then asked to step out of the vehicle. A protective weapons search was completed and Mr. Reedy was detained and placed in the back seat of the patrol car. During a probable cause search of the vehicle, the deputy found a scale and a box of antique silver utensils, in addition to the marijuana pipe. The deputy asked Mr. Reedy where the spoons were from, he stated his girlfriend’s grandmother gave them to him. The deputy cited Mr. Reedy for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. The deputy advised Mr. Reedy that he would be confiscating the silver utensils in order to determine if they were involved in any theft cases, and if he could provide owner information, he could come pick them up at the Safety Building. Mr. Reedy was provided with his citations and released. SPRAY PAINTING VANDALS IN TROY AND BRADFORD: On Nov. 7, several reports of spray paint on a storage unit at a home in Troy and two construction companies doing business in Bradford were reported. A home owner in Troy reported comments on all sides of a storage unit that has been in front of her residence for past two months. There were several pictures of male genitals and comments referring to those male parts. All of the spray paint used was orange in color. On School St., in Bradford, deputies met with contractors from Toms Construction. The contractor told deputies when they arrived to the job site on Nov. 7 they had items spray paint-

Information provided by the Miami County Sheriff’s Office: Nov. 7 OVI STOP: Miami County Sheriff’s deputy observed a vehicle on Cherry St., Troy, sitting in the middle of the right hand lane of westbound traffic on W. Main St. The driver appeared to be passed out at the wheel with their foot on the brake. The deputy went around the public square and came back, turned right onto Cherry St. to get behind the vehicle. As the deputy was turning, the driver of the vehicle sat up in the vehicle and looked over towards me. When the deputy was pulling up behind the vehicle the traffic light turned green and the driver made a left turn east bound on Main St. The driver was in the straight lane when they came to the public square, the driver made a quick right turn almost striking the yield sign on S. Market St. The driver was across the double center yellow line when they went onto S. Market St. there was a vehicle coming towards them. The deputy activated the emergency lights and siren, the vehicle continued southbound on S. Market St. making a left hand turn onto E. Canal St. The vehicle stopped at E. Canal St. at Walnut St. The deputy made contact with the female driver, Krystal Rowley. The deputy could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her person. The deputy advised her of why he had stopped her and she said that she knew she did. The deputy asked her how much she had to drink and she said two beers. The deputy asked her to step out of the vehicle to perform a series of field sobriety tests. The deputy had Ms. Rowley step up on the sidewalk where the cement was level. The first test was the Horizontal Gaze Nystgamus. The deputy explained the test to her and asked her if she understood and she said yes. Ms. Rowley exhibited all six clues possible. During the test she continued to move her feet to keep her balance and was swaying back and forth. The next test was the one leg stand test. The deputy explained and demonstrated the test to her and asked her of she understood and she said yes. Ms. Rowley was unable to perform the test. She was not able to stand on one leg without losing her balance, and she never started to count at any point during the test. The next test was the walk and turn test. The deputy explained and demonstrated the test to her and asked her is she understood and she said yes. Ms. Rowley was unable to stand with her right heel touching her left toe while the deputy gave her the instructions for the test, she continued to move her feet to keep her balance. When she did start the test she never counted her steps out loud, or touched heel to toe, and she took 15 steps down before completing the turn incorrectly. She stopped on her third step back and at that time the deputy placed

ed. On the rear of one of their excavator they had red spray paint scribbled on it. On the side of their semi trailer there was more red spray paint with the word “underachievers” wrote. The contractor told the deputy they have been having problems with a subject that lives on School St. The contractor told the deputy the subject is unhappy they are doing work on the street. On Nov. 8, Miami County Sheriff’s deputies spoke with Tim Taylor owner of Taylor Made construction on Atlas St., Bradford. Tim told the deputy when he was unlocking his front door he noticed it had been painted with red paint. Tim thought that was strange so he started checking the rest of his business. He noticed on one of his truck’s parked in the back lot had been vandalized. Tim went and looked at the truck and noticed it also had red spray paint on it. Also the headlights were busted out and there was a crack in the front windshield. The paint was the same shade as the other item’s spray painted in town. The officer spoke with a neighbor to see if he had seen anyone around the business. He told me he has seen kids back there in the past but has not seen anything recently. BACK ROAD CRUISE LEADS TO POT CITATION: At 3:46 p.m. on Nov. 9, a Miami County Sheriff’s Office deputy was traveling northbound on Kessler-Frederick Road and observed a white Mercury travel onto the right shoulder off of the roadway then back onto the roadway while traveling northbound on Kessler-Frederick Road. The deputy initiated a traffic stop on a white Mercury after the vehicle traveled onto Nashville Road by activating overhead emergency lights and sirens. The deputy made contact with the female driver identified as Brandy Cox and the right front passenger William Bruhn. The deputy advised Cox for the reason of the traffic stop and she apologized for driving off the roadway. She stated she was distracted by speaking on her cell phone. The deputy asked her for her driver’s license, valid proof of insurance and vehicle registration. She only provided her driver’s license. The deputy requested the passenger, Bruhn, to provide his identification as well. Bruhn did without incident. The deputy checked both Cox and Bruhn through LEADS and the return showed they both had valid driver’s license without any wants or warrants. The deputy checked both Cox and Bruhn through another system and the return showed both had recent drug history involving marijuana drug possession. The deputy re-contacted Cox and requested to speak to her outside of her vehicle. Cox exited the vehicle and met with me near the rear of her car. The deputy asked Cox if there was any illegal narcotics, weapons or any other contraband in the vehicle and she stated she did not have anything. The deputy advised her that due to her and Bruhn’s history, the deputy believed there were narcotics in the vehicle. The

deputy advised Cox when he was speaking to her, Bruhn refused to look at me and was staring in an empty field next to the vehicle. The deputy advised her while he returned to the cruiser to check their history, the deputy observed Bruhn lean to his right side while seated in the vehicle. The deputy advised her he believed he was placing something into his pants. Cox stated she did not have anything. The deputy advised her she was traveling on a road that was not a direct route between her residence and Troy. She stated they were going to get food in Troy and wanted to take the “back roads”. The deputy requested Cox to have a seat in the vehicle while he spoke to her passenger. The deputy advised her that he would leave the window down in the cruiser in case she wanted to speak while he was speaking with him. The deputy made contact with Bruhn and requested for him to exit the vehicle. Bruhn exited the vehicle without incident. The deputy advised Bruhn that he did not believe Cox’s story and reasoning for traveling on Kessler-Frederick Road. The deputy advised him that he checked both him and Cox’s history and observed multiple drug possession charges involving marijuana. The deputy advised him he had never met anyone whom had multiple charges involving marijuana not have a smoking pipe or “weed” on them. The deputy asked Bruhn if he had any marijuana on him and he stated he did not. The deputy asked him if he had a pipe and he stated he did not. The deputy advised him that he believed he had marijuana and a smoking pipe in his pants. Bruhn was hesitant while answering. The deputy conducted a pat down of Bruhn’s outer person for weapons and while shaking his right pants leg of his pants, a glass multicolored smoking pipe fell from the inside of his pants leg. The deputy recovered the pipe and instructed Bruhn to recover the marijuana from his pants and give it to me. Shortly after, Bruhn recovered a clear baggie containing weed from his underwear. The deputy had him place the baggie in a rubber glove. The deputy secured the pipe and marijuana as evidence. The deputy conducted a search on Bruhn with negative findings of narcotics, weapons or any other illegal contraband. The deputy had Bruhn wait outside the vehicle while completing a misdemeanor complaint in lieu of an arrest for drug possession and drug paraphernalia with a mandatory court appearance. The deputy requested another unit to respond to assist with searching the vehicle. Shortly after, another unit arrived and stood by with Bruhn and Cox while the deputy searched the vehicle. The deputy had negative findings of any illegal contraband. The deputy provided Bruhn with his copies and asked him if he had any questions. He stated he didn’t. They left shortly after without incident. The deputy entered the property into the property room without incident.

Tipp-Thurgood likely to be fast in many ways Josh Brown

Sports Editor

BEAVERCREEK — Last season, Tippecanoe may not have been ready for the change of pace. “We played on turf last year when we went to Turpin in the first round of the playoffs. We practiced at home that week, though, and it rained,” Tippecanoe coach Charlie Burgbacher said. “The field was all wet and muddy. Then in the game, we came out in the first half and played like we were still practicing in mud. The game Mark Dowd | Troy Daily News file was just so much faster than we Tippecanoe’s Sean Ford scored three touchdowns in the Red Devils’ were used to — to be fair, par42-7 victory over Kenton Ridge on Nov. 8. tially due to the players (Turpin)

had.” This season, though, the Red Devils are taking measures to be prepared. When top-seeded Tippecanoe faces No. 5 Thurgood Marshall Friday on Northmont High School’s turf field, they will be more accustomed to it after a week of practice at Beavercreek High School leading up to the Division III, Region 10 semifinal matchup. “This year, we want to make sure the kids have good footing and get used to the surfaces ahead of time,” Burgbacher said. And given the Devils’ track See PACE | 16

CASSTOWN — Conner Hellyer stood on the sidelines, tears welling up in his eyes. It wasn’t the searing pain in his arm causing him to weep, but rather the pain in his heart. “I cried,” said Hellyer, a junior quarterback on the Miami East football team. “It stunk. I wasn’t crying because I was hurt, I was crying because I had to watch my teammates out there playing without me.” One year ago, Hellyer’s season was cut short by a broken collarbone suffered midway through the season. This year he’s managed to stay healthy and is all smiles as he leads the Vikings into Friday’s Division VI, Region

22 semifinal playoff game against Mechanicsburg at Welcome Stadium in Dayton. Not only is Hellyer healthy, but he’s putting up numbers only one quarterback in East history has ever matched. Through 11 games, Hellyer has thrown for 1,196. He’s just the second quarterback in school history to throw for 1,000 or more yards in a season, joining Chad Demmitt, who threw for 1,502 yards in 1993. The fact he’s done in it in coach Max Current’s runfirst offense is all the more impressive. “I’m not a big passing fan,” Current said with a laugh. “But Conner is the first true quarterback we’ve really had since I’ve been here. We’ve had other guys who have played quarterback before who’ve also had to start on defense. But Conner’s role

is a true quarterback, and that’s what he’s doing. “If you had asked me 10 years ago what our chances of having a 1,000-yard passer would be, I would have told you it was slimto-none. But we’ve also got some pretty good receivers, which has helped. We’ve got Michael Fellers and ‘Peanut’ (Dalton Allen), and (Colton) McKinney who does a great job catching the ball out of the backfield. All of our backs can catch. If you’ve got the athletes, you’ve got to use them. If you’ve got the weapons, you might as well go ahead and fire the gun — there is no tomorrow at this point in the season.” With Hellyer pulling the trigger, Fellers has 527 receiving yards this season, Allen has 219 and tight end See TRIGGER | 16

No. 10 OSU outlasts OU, 79-69

COLUMBUS (AP) — Aaron Craft scored 17 points — including eight free throws down the stretch — to help No. 10 Ohio State hold off neighboring rival Ohio 79-69 on Tuesday night. Amir Williams had a career-high 14 points, reserve Sam Thompson had 12 and LaQuinton Ross added 10 for the Buckeyes (2-0). Ohio State built a 12-point halftime lead and never trailed in a game with little continuity due to the constant whistles calling the new contact rules. Ohio State was 37 of 50 at the line. Stevie Taylor and Nick Kellogg each had 21 points for Ohio (1-1), down by as many as 17 before cutting the gap to five points with 4 minutes left. The teams, just 75 miles apart, hadn’t met on the court in 19 years. See BUCKEYES | 15

Spencer going silent with media Bearcat ‘D’ leads rally in victory Titus Rubles tied his career-high with 14 points for Cincinnati against North Carolina State, but he made his biggest contribution on defense. The Bearcats senior forward led the defensive effort that limited Wolfpack scoring leader T.J. Warren to 13 points — five in the second half and fewer than half of the 27 he scored in N.C. State’s opener — as Cincinnati came from behind and pulled away for a 68-57 win on Wednesday. See Page 15.

COLUMBUS (AP) — It appears that Ohio State wide receiver Evan Spencer won’t be speaking to reporters for quite a while. Coach Urban Meyer said Tuesday that Spencer wouldn’t speak with the media for “a long, long time” after saying a day earlier that Ohio State would “wipe the field” with Alabama and whoever is No. 2 in the Bowl Championship Series rankings. “I guess I’m a little biased, but I think we’d, uh, we’d wipe the field with both of them,” Spencer said, chuckling. “But that’s just my bias speaking.” Currently, Alabama is No. 1 and Florida State No. 2 in the BCS rankings. Ohio State is No. 3. It was a statement that Spencer — the son of a former Ohio State and NFL player and coach — concluded with a laugh. It

was clear he was half-joking. But sarcasm, humor and nuance seldom can be sensed between the lines of cold, hard print or on a monitor or screen. Meyer was asked on the Big Ten coaches call about Spencer’s words. “I’m very disappointed. I can’t stand that,” Meyer said. “I think I know Evan well enough. I even talked to him briefly. He was kind of smiling when he said it. So, no I can’t stand it. He’s certainly not the spokesman for our team.” Spencer, a bright, engaging talker, will be off limits to reporters — for quite a while. “As a result, what I do is Evan won’t talk to the media for a long, long time,” Meyer said. “You don’t do that. That’s not good sportsmanship. And that’s not what we expect. I understand, he’s a young man who made a minor mistake. But we just don’t do

that. We talk about your teammates, we talk about the team and move on.” Social media sites blew up with fans angry about Spencer’s comments. Spencer apologized on Twitter for his quotes. He said he was trying to make a light-hearted comment and was not speaking for the team. Meyer was not pleased, publicly or privately, that an upcoming opponent was disparaged, even in jest. “What he believes and what goes on inside the locker room certainly doesn’t need to be in the papers and all that,” Meyer said. “I don’t like disrespecting other teams.” Spencer, a 6-foot-2, 206-pound junior, is third on the Buckeyes in receiving with 21 catches for 209 yards and three touchdowns. Ohio State (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) plays at Illinois (3-6, 0-5) on Saturday.

UC rallys, tops NC State it had a wearing affect. We were trying to use our depth to our advantage, and wear them down as best we could.” N.C. State coach Mark Gottfried considered the game a learning experience. “I thought the difference in the game was learning how to execute under duress,” he said. “That is where you become a well-oiled machine, when you can handle somebody’s pressure and get the right shots and make shots. We didn’t do that down the stretch.” Warren tied Jackson for the lead with 10 rebounds, giving the N.C. State sophomore his first double-double in two games, and Ralston Turner scored 13 points while Desmond Lee added 10 for N.C. State (1-1). The win was just the second for the Bearcats in eight games against the Wolfpack, which has just one senior on the roster. The teams combined for 12 ties and eight lead changes. Kilpatrick scored five unanswered points on two free throws and a 3-pointer to give Cincinnati a 51-48 lead with 9:45 left in the game. Cincinnati went on to lead by 14 before settling for the 11-point win. The Bearcats made 23 free throws, while N.C. State only attempted 21, making 12. Both teams shot under 40 percent for the game. N.C. State was called for a technical foul with 1:07 left in the second half for having six players on the floor. The game, part of the Global Sports Shootout, was the second of seven straight

Buckeyes From page 13

There were a combined 55 fouls called and five Bobcats fouled out. Down by double figures most of the game, the Bobcats got back into it in the closing minutes behind the play of Taylor and Kellogg. Trailing 64-53, Kellogg hit a reverse layup in traffic before Craft missed a layup at the other end. A long pass led to Taylor’s three-point play that cut it to 64-58 with just over 5 minutes remaining. After a free throw by Craft, Ndour hit a follow shot to cut it to 65-60. Williams then tipped in a miss by Ross. Off an Ohio miss, Craft hit two more foul shots to push the lead back to 69-60. Still, the game wasn’t firmly in hand until Scott drove the left baseline and flipped a pass to the right corner to Smith who hit a 3 with 2 minutes remaining for a 74-64 lead. The Bobcats never got closer than seven points again as Craft scored nine of Ohio State’s last 12 points. The Buckeyes led 40-28 after a foulfest of a first 20 minutes. The teams combined for 25 fouls, 15 by the Bobcats. It appeared Ohio State might just run away and hide at the beginning. With the Bobcats looking hesitant and nervous, the Buckeyes ran off the first nine points and held Ohio scoreless for the opening 6:32 until Taylor finally broke the ice on a drive.

With the constant barrage of fouls preventing either team from building any momentum, Ohio State built a 24-7 lead by the half’s midpoint. But with Taylor scoring six straight points the Bobcats drew within 28-20. Just as quickly, however, the Buckeyes ran off the next six points on a 3 by Ross and three free throws by Craft. Ohio had two players with three fouls (subs Treg Setty and T.J. Hall) and three others with two (including starters Jon Smith and Ricardo Johnson). The Buckeyes hit 15 of 20 free throws in the opening half. It was the first meeting between the teams since the 1994-95 season. The Bobcats won that Preseason NIT game, 74-67 at St. John Arena behind 26 points and 15 rebounds by Gary Trent. Jeff Boals, now an Ohio State assistant coach, came off the bench to hit 7 of 11 shots from the field and score 14 points while grabbing eight rebounds for the Bobcats. There were connections everywhere. Former Ohio State star Clark Kellogg was in the stands dressed in Ohio’s green and white to support his son, starter Nick Kellogg. The coaches, Ohio State’s Thad Matta and Ohio’s Jim Christian, had even been on the same Miami (Ohio) staff briefly during the 1994-95 season.

Neither team led by more than five points in an evenly played first half that included 10 ties and six lead changes before ending with a 35-35 score. N.C. State was 11-of-28 from the field, while the Bearcats were 11-of-27. No. 2 Mich. St. 78, No. 1 Kentucky 74 CHICAGO (AP) — With Keith Appling, Gary Harris and Adreian Payne all scoring in double figures for No. 2 Michigan State, Branden Dawson came up with the biggest basket, tipping in a miss with less than six seconds left to give the Spartans a 78-74 victory over top-ranked Kentucky on Tuesday night. James Young missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer, and the Spartans erupted in delight, with Harris holding up his index finger. No. 1, indeed. No. 3 Louisville 97, Hofstra 69 LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Russ Smith scored 21 of his game-high 30 points in the first half and No. 3 Louisville made 12 3-pointers to set the tone for a 97-69 rout of Hofstra on Tuesday night.

Carolina St. 59 ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Caris LeVert made his first five 3-point attempts, and No. 7 Michigan had a terrific night from beyond the arc, breezing to a 93-59 victory over South Carolina State on Tuesday night. LeVert finished with 24 points, going 6 of 7 from long distance. Nik Stauskas added 23 points — he was 5 of 6 from 3-point range. Both sophomores set career highs in scoring. No. 9 Syracuse 89, Fordham 74 SYRACUSE, N.Y. — C.J. Fair scored a careerhigh 26 points, Jerami Grant added 16 points and 10 rebounds, and No. 9 Syracuse beat Fordham 89-74 on Tuesday night. Syracuse, which started the season with a so-so 82-60 win over Cornell on Friday night after trailing by 14 points late in the first half, left

little doubt about the outcome of this one. The Orange had the game in hand by halftime, leading by 25 behind 15 points from Fair as the Syracuse defense clamped down from the opening tip. No. 14 VCU 59, No. 25 Virginia 56 CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Treveon Graham scored 22 points, including a tie-breaking 3-pointer with 1.1 seconds to play, and No. 14 VCU beat No. 25 Virginia 59-56 on Tuesday night in front a sellout crowd at John Paul Jones Arena. The Rams (2-0) trailed for almost all of the final 10 minutes until Graham’s steal and baseline jumper gave them a 56-55 lead with 1:18 left. No. 17 Marquette 114, Grambling 71 MILWAUKEE — Chris Otule scored 17 points and Steve Taylor added 16 points and 11 rebounds to help No. 17 Marquette roll over Grambling State 114-71 on Tuesday night.

The last time Marquette (2-0) reached the century mark came in a 102-77 victory over Mississippi Valley State on Dec. 21, 2010. No. 23 Baylor 66, S. Carolina 64 WACO, Texas — Brady Heslip scored 18 points with five 3-pointers and No. 23 Baylor held on for a 66-64 victory over South Carolina, without making a field goal in the final 7 minutes and having to wait out a lengthy review after the final buzzer Tuesday before officials determined there wasn’t yet another foul in the game. South Carolina (1-1) was desperately trying to get a tying basket, and the ball was still being batted around when the buzzer sounded at the same time a referee blew a whistle for an apparent foul. The refs reviewed the video before declaring the game was over.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Titus Rubles tied his career-high with 14 points for Cincinnati against North Carolina State, but he made his biggest contribution on defense. The Bearcats senior forward led the defensive effort that limited Wolfpack scoring leader T.J. Warren to 13 points — five in the second half and fewer than half of the 27 he scored in N.C. State’s opener — as Cincinnati came from behind and pulled away for a 68-57 win on Wednesday. “He’s a catalyst,” Rubles said. “He’s the best player on their team. With any team, if you stop their best player and make the other players try to beat you, you’ve got a good chance at any time.” Sean Kilpatrick scored 21 points and Justin Jackson finished with his first career doubledouble — 10 points and 10 rebounds — and four blocked shots as Cincinnati outrebounded N.C. State by seven, 43-36, while improving to 2-0 before a crowd of 7,028. According to Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin, the Bearcats’ strategy was to use their press to wear down an undermanned Wolfpack, which used just eight players to Cincinnati’s 11. “Obviously, in the second half, our defense was the difference in the game,” said Cronin, whose team held N.C. State to 26.7 percent (8-of-30) from the field and 3-of-9 on free throws in the second half. “We wanted to keep them off the free throw line and limit their second shots. Maybe the press had a little effect on that. I hope

Braves moving to Cobb County Turner Field to be demolished in 2017 ATLANTA (AP) — The city of Atlanta will demolish Turner Field and rebuild in its place a large-scale development after the Braves leave for a new stadium in the suburbs in 2017, the mayor said Tuesday. Speaking at a news conference, Mayor Kasim Reed didn’t provide specifics on the future project, but made clear that the stadium would not be left vacant when the Braves depart. “We’re going to have a mas-

ter developer that is going to demolish the Ted and we’re going to have one of the largest developments for middleclass people that the city has ever had,” he said, referring to the stadium’s nickname. The mayor said Atlanta had hoped to keep the team in the city but could not afford to do so. He says the city would have had to take on $150 million to $250 million in debt to make the improvements the Braves wanted at Turner Field.

Reed’s decision to let the Braves walk came just a few months after the mayor faced tough criticism for pushing through a plan to use at least $200 million in public money to support a new NFL stadium downtown. While the city made a high-profile effort to help secure a new $1.2 billion, retractable-roof stadium for the NFL’s Falcons, talks with the Braves quietly broke down over the summer. The Braves unexpectedly announced Monday they are

moving in 2017 to a new 42,000-seat, $672 million stadium about 10 miles from downtown in suburban Cobb County, apparently swayed by a lucrative financial package. Reed said Monday the city couldn’t match Cobb County’s offer of $450 million in public support to the Braves, though county officials wouldn’t confirm that amount. The Braves stressed on a team website that the team and the county were still finalizing how expenses for the stadium would be split. “At no time in our discus-

sions with Cobb County, or any other municipality, have the Braves referenced a $450 million public investment,” the team said in a statement on the site. “Reports of this figure are erroneous.” Mike Plant, the Braves executive vice president of business operations, said the team has not signed a contract with Cobb County, but he’s “100 percent certain it will happen.” Cobb County Commission Chairman Tim Lee said the team is working to finalize a memorandum of understanding that would be presented

to the full commission at its Nov. 26 meeting. He declined to answer any questions about public financing or the $450 million figure cited by Reed. The Braves had made it clear for years they were not satisfied with Turner Field, located just south of downtown near some of the city’s poorest neighborhoods. The team frequently cited a lack of neighborhood development, complaints about the closest MARTA rapid-transit station being about a mile away, and the inability to secure more parking spaces.

forces you to play disciplined ball.” But the Red Devils can hang up big numbers offensively, too. Tippecanoe (11-0) has averaged 48.7 points per game during its 11-game winning streak this season. Its lowest offensive output came in Week 10 against then-undefeated Springfield Shawnee, a game the Devils won 21-7. “That’s a pretty good summation. They’ve scored a lot of points throughout the course of the season — but they can also give up some points,” Burgbacher said. “We give them a little bit different look than they see in the City League. We’re not a spread team, either. And we’re

not unfamiliar — we do scrimmage each other in the preseason.” With both teams being able to light up the scoreboard, the deciding factor could be Tippecanoe’s defense. The Red Devils have only allowed an average of 7.3 points per game this year and pitched four shutouts. Shawnee came into that Week 10 game averaging 47.8 points per game, and the Devils held the Braves to a mere seven. And in Week 9 against Kenton Ridge — which came in averaging 38.6 points per game — the Devils won 35-7. “They’re going to provide a challenge for us,” Burgbacher said. “Their particular type of offense, we haven’t seen it since our scrimmage. But it’s going to be a very fastmoving game. Neither one of us throw the ball very much, so it’s not going to be like last week (a 42-7 win over Kenton Ridge) where one team is throwing the ball 40-plus times.” It’s also Tippecanoe’s third time playing in a regional semifinal game. Aside from the trip in 2009, Tippecanoe also reached the second round in 2002, when the Devils lost to Valley View 24-10. This year’s Devils have already established a new standard of excellence for future Tippecanoe teams to measure up to — and they’re looking to add to it, too. “They’re focused on that,” Burgbacher said. “They want to set the standard, and they want to set it high.” And they’re going to have to play fast to do it.

Pace From page 13 record on turf — the 26-3 loss at Turpin last year and a 54-14 loss to St. Francis DeSales at Welcome Stadium in 2009 — the move could make a big difference. Especially in a game where points will likely go up on the board at an alarming rate. Thurgood Marshall enters the game with a 7-3 record, scoring an average of 47.2 points per game with its wing-T attack. The lowest output for the Cougar offense came against unbeaten Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary in a 41-12 loss. Aside from that, the Cougars haven’t been held to less than 32 points — and especially not last week, when they defeated Mt. Orab Western Brown 76-40 in

a shootout in the first round of the playoffs. “They want to be under center, and that’s what kind of makes them unique. It’s not some-

thing teams in the City League see every day,” Burgbacher said. “The first year we scrimmaged them, it was an eye-opener. They run real tight

splits and have all that speed in the backfield, and they make a lot of quick cuts. Their kids run north and south against the grain, and it really

Braxton Donaldson has 174 to lead the Vikings. Having so many weapons at his disposal has allowed Hellyer to have exactly the type of season he had hoped for — not necessarily for himself, but for his team. “Honestly, we expected this to happen,” he said. “From the experience we had in making the playoffs, I felt like we could make it back. For me personally, throwing for 1,000 yards is just like an extra thing.” An “extra thing” that Hellyer may not necessarily have expected — but his coach most certainly did. “We saw it coming,” Current said. “He’s an accurate passer. He’s got all the tools you want a quarterback to have. He’s a smart kid, so he’s definitely got the mental capacity. He responds well under pressure. For a high school kid not to be rattled when he’s rushed and be able to concentrate on his heads is a tough thing to do.” All of which has led to a dream season for Hellyer. “It’s fulfilling,” he said. “It’s really exciting to be able to get this experience.” Which means the only thing Hellyer has been crying lately are tears of joy.
