Columnist is against sports of all sorts I’m going to sound like a complete ditz saying this — but I know very little (read: nothing) about football. Or sports in general. And I don’t care. Thanks to flipping through a few news stories last Sunday I did know that the big game was Notre Dame versus Alabama. Something about a bowl, which is a synonym for fantastically important sporting event, as I understand it. Being Catholic, I decided to “root” for Notre Dame. See Page 4.

A Beavercreek man entered a last-minute no contest plea Tuesday morning and was found guilty of one count of child rape just minutes before his four-day trial was to begin and as prospective jurors waited in the wings.

TROY Jason Zwick, 30, originally charged with three counts of child rape, was found guilty by Miami County Common Pleas Court Judge Christopher Gee, who sentenced the convicted pedophile to serve 10 years to life in prison and pay a $20,000 fine.

• Unemployment risks creating new divide in Europe BRUSSELS (AP) Record unemployment and fraying social welfare systems in southern Europe risk creating a new divide in the continent, the EU warned Tuesday, after figures showed joblessness across the 17 EU countries that use the euro hit a new high. Eurozone unemployment rose to 11.8 percent in November, the highest since the euro currency was founded in 1999, according to the statistical agency Eurostat. The rate was up from 11.7 percent in October and 10.6 percent a year earlier. In the wider 27-nation European Union, the world’s largest economic bloc with 500 million people, unemployment broke the 26 million mark for the first time. But the trend is not uniform. Unemployment is increasing mainly in those countries, mostly in southern Europe, where market concerns over excessive public debt have pushed governments to make the toughest savings, moving the economies into recession. — Staff and wire reports

A Pleasant Hill man will be charged with OVI stemming from a motorcycle accident on Sunday afternoon. Scott Niesley, 44, of Pleasant Hill, was injured when his motorcycle hit a manhole cover and

then lost control near the intersection of Saratoga and Yorktown streets Sunday around 4 p.m. Niesley was transported by Troy medics to Upper Valley Medical Center and later was transported by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital.

• CONTINUED FROM 1 offender, was convicted of raping a 10-year-old child who was in the care of a Troy adoptive father, Kenneth Brandt, who allowed the sexual conduct after the two men met through an online classifieds website. Brandt had two other adoptive children living in his home at the time, ages 9 and 12. Brandt, 40, was sentenced to 60 years to life in December after pleading guilty to six counts of child rape in a plea agreement where 25 charges were dismissed. In accordance with that plea agreement, Brandt was supposed to be called to testify against Zwick, along with the child victim, had the case went to trial. Brandt and Zwick, along with another man, Patrick Rieder, 32, of Dayton, were indicted by a Miami County grand jury in March after each was arrested the month

before at the conclusion of an investigation by the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force into Brandt allegedly compelling child prostitution via online advertisements. Brandt pleaded guilty to seven counts of rape in neighboring Montgomery County last month and he is currently awaiting sentencing on those convictions, which will take place Feb. 26. Rieder has been charged with four counts of rape in that county and is awaiting trial. Brandt is expected to testify against him if the case moves to trial. The child victims have since been placed in the custody of relatives and are under the supervision of children services. An attorney for Zwick, Joseph Stadnicar, was not available for comment and a phone call to his office was not returned. It wasn’t immediately known if Stadnicar plans to appeal the case.

Court • CONTINUED FROM 1 Due to the age of the victim, Johnston faced a maximum sentence of life imprisonment Authorities alleged Johnston committed the sexual act occurred May 27 at a West Milton home and involved a 5-year-old girl who he was associated. The charges followed an investigation prompted when the child told trusted adults of the sexual activity. Meanwhile in Miami County Municipal Court, a 72-year-old Tipp City resident was charged

with several sex crimes. Willie Couch II was charged with seven counts of gross sexual imposition involving a child, each a thirddegree felony that a potential carries maximum prison sentence of five years in prison and sex offender registration. Couch, arrested over the weekend, remains jailed on a $175,000 bond on the charges, which involve two juvenile females and transpired in the last five years. A Jan. 17 preliminary hearing is scheduled for Couch.

• CONTINUED FROM 1 to the Top goals have been completed in four areas: transformation team and transparent communication, standards and assessments, using data to improve instruction and great teachers and leaders applications. Rappold said work for the area of teacher evaluation committee has been completely reworked thanks to new legislation approved recently through House Bill 555. “Our first semester we had 50 percent completed (prior to winter break),” Rappold said. “House Bill 555 is 200 pages and it changed everything we’ve been working on the last semester.” Rappold said despite the frustration, teachers and staff members have continued to push through the changes and hopes the state is “working on some direction on what to do.” “The staff has done a very nice job,” Rappold, adding the board will be approving the teacher evaluation policies in the future once it is complete for the 2013-2014 year. Rappold said the federal education grant from the Race to the Top of $100,000 disbursed through five years has helped the district provide professional development without using general operating expenses. Rappold also highlighted the cafeteria expense sheet as the K-8 building showing a profit and the high school at a loss. Rappold said the new federal USDA requirements of double fresh fruits and vegetables are costly, although more nutritious. Accurso said much of the funding is “out of our control.” The new guidelines were intended to address increasing childhood obesity levels. They set limits on calories and salt and phase in whole grains. Schools must offer at least one vegetable or fruit per meal. The department also dictated how much of certain food groups could be served. Rappold said many students do enjoy healthy options like carrot sticks and fresh fruit and participation is fairly steady — “it’s just more expensive.” Many board members agreed with the “Catch-22” of the new guidelines, noting the healthier options are at the expense of the cafeteria operating fund


said Oda, noting that she personally did not find fault with road conditions but asked for clarification on the city’s policy for snow removal. City of Troy Public Safety and Service Director Patrick Titterington said the street department followed the

same procedures for weather conditions as it has the last five years. He said a map of all primary and secondary streets, which receive first attention during treacherous weather conditions, can be found on the city’s website under the street department’s page. Titterington said the type of snow “compounded things”

of the crash or it came loose during the crash. Long said the police department have filed OVI charges against Niesley. “Alcohol was a factor in this crash,” Long said. A second motorcycle was believed to be traveling with Niesley according to witnesses but left the scene “and couldn’t be found.”

and budget. With the new federal guidelines, the USDA reimbursement increased 6 more cents. The average cost of a fresh banana — approximately 45 cents a pound. Rappold said many vendors have limited offerings in the field of grains and thus prices for at least 50 percent whole grains are more expensive. Rappold said he does believe once guidelines are in place, more competition to offer more choices could drive the prices slowly down. Treasurer Lisa Fahncke said much of the same logic can be applied with a personal visit to the grocery store since it is more expensive to buy whole grains and fresh foods. Rappold said all classes have posted E-Calamity Day work on the school’s website. The district has used one calamity day. The E-Calamity Day work will be utilized if the district exhausts four calamity days. Miami East Education Foundation’s Beth Culberson invited the board to attend the sixth annual Viking Fest.

At the last council meeting, a couple discussed a recent incident when their car was towed and felt like procedures were not followed and felt they were not properly responded to by staff or the director of law James Livingston. Conard commented that he felt the reactions and side comments from members were unwarranted. The next city council meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 22 at city hall due to the Martin Luther King Jr. national holiday.

Johnston to travel with People to People program BY DANA WOLFE For the Troy Daily News When the school year starts winding down, most kids start thinking about a much-deserved break filled with lazy days, the pool, fairs and family vacations. Not for Meghan Johnston, an eighth grader at MiltonUnion Middle School. She can’t stop thinking about visiting other counJOHNSTON tries such a France, Switzerland, Austria and Italy. Johnston recently was chosen to be an ambassador representing the state of Ohio in the People to People Ambassador program. During the 19-day trip, students attend several outdoor and educational activities along the way. Johnston will have the opportunity to go see an actual concentration camp and learn the history of them. Out of 160 students that applied, Johnston was chosen because of her GPA, leadership skills and her ability to work well with others. Her agenda in traveling to these countries will be to see how each of their governments work, and to

bring back all the information that she will learn during her travels. “I’m really excited to be going,” Johnston said, “I know I can make a difference.” The People to People program was started in 1956 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to seek diplomatic alternatives to the wars he witnessed as a soldier. His desire was to create a cultural exchange program. He wanted to break down the barriers by providing short term travel opportunities with personal behind the scenes access. He wanted students from different countries to meet and get to know one another, with the result being understanding, friendship and lasting peace. Johnston is looking forward to getting to know her host family and experiencing the different cultures. “I’m most excited about just seeing how others live in their countries, and how my host family lives. What they do from day to day, what they eat, just how they live,” she said. This will be the first time Johnston has been away from her family this long. “I will be over there for 19 days, and I’m a little

nervous. I haven’t been away from family for that long at all,” she said, adding, “But it will be worth it.” Over the last half century, more than 500,000 students have been student ambassadors. They have all had life changing experiences. They learn the power of applying their time money and energy on others in their worldwide communities. In 2012, the student ambassadors groups completed more than 86,000 hours of community service around the world. While the cost of the trip is expensive — $7,500 — Johnston has already started fund raising endeavors to help off set the expense. Johnston is the daughter of Becky and Steven Johnston.

Question: Will Barack Obama do a better or worse job in his second term?

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP San Francisco Chronicle on Russia’s adoption policy: Russian President Vladimir Putin just signed a cruel and spiteful law that will bar Americans from adopting Russian children. The new law will wreck the lives of the 46 children whose American adoptions were already under way, hundreds of other American families who had launched the adoption process, and the lives of countless children to come who will now live out their childhoods in Russian orphanages. Americans adopt nearly a thousand Russian children every year. The worst part is, Putin did it just to thumb his nose at the Americans for daring to protest his government’s loathsome human rights record. It wasn’t enough for Putin to crush dissenters and others who object to his increasingly autocratic rule — he had to bring vulnerable orphans into it, too. The new law was originally written as a tit-for-tat response to the U.S. Magnitsky Act. Sergei Magnitsky was a 37-year-old lawyer who was beaten and left to die in a Russian prison after implicating many Russian officials in a massive fraud scheme — and in a rare bipartisan moment, the U.S. Congress As I passed travel and financial sanctions against those See It officials believed to be responsible for his death. ■ The Troy Those officials remain quite powerful in Russia, Daily News however — which is why the Kremlin drafted a bill welcomes to impose similar visa and asset freezes on columns from Americans accused of violating Russians’ rights our readers.

Instead, Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf pulled a Douglas MacArthur — and faded away. From the spotlight, anyway. The military hero of the first Gulf War spent his twilight years quietly helping children and charities before his passing last Dec. 27 at 78. It’s difficult to overstate Schwarzkopf’s importance to modern U.S. military history. The Gulf War of 1991 was this country’s first major ground assault since the Vietnam War — and we all know how that one ended. The United States desperately needed a confidence boost, the clarity of a decisive end, and as few coalition casualties as possible. In addition, we were taking on one of the world’s most unscrupulous, unbalanced bullies, a would-be Hitler, and the mother of all trash-talkers in Saddam Hussein. There are probably two kinds of military heroes: the men who risk life and limb for their country and countrymen, and those visionary leaders who successfully command them. Norman Schwarzkopf was both kinds, having earned three Silver Stars for valor, a Bronze Star, a Purple Heart and more in Vietnam. The ambiguity of the first Gulf War’s end wasn’t Schwarzkopf’s doing. Rather, he lent America’s all-volunteer Armed Forces a clarity and John Wayne-style swagger that cut off and killed any of the country’s remaining self-doubt from the Vietnam era. He was, as any hero, the right man at the right time.

I’m against sports of all sorts in my life I’m going to sound like a complete ditz saying this — but I know very little (read: nothing) about football. Or sports in general. And I don’t care. Thanks to flipping through a few news stories last Sunday I did know that the big game was Notre Dame versus Alabama. Something about a bowl, which is a synonym for fantastically important sporting event, as I understand it. Being Catholic, I decided to “root” for Notre Dame. And by root, I mean absolutely nothing, since I opted to read a Nicholas Sparks book instead of watching the game. I did, however, hear my dad in the living room coaching the players through the TV. At least he’s not as bad as my guy friends, with their favorite pastime being watching a game on one TV while simultaneously watching another game or playing a video game on another TV. Someone please tell me how

Natalie Knoth Troy Daily News Columnist this works. Often it’s difficult to discern what game they’re even yelling about. Anyway, my utter stupidity of sports can be traced back to the time I was about 12. The 5-year-old I was babysitting told me about his favorite team the Yankees, and I chimed in saying that I too like basketball, with my favorite team being the University of Dayton Flyers. Here I was, relating to a young kid. Go me! He laughed and rolled his eyes. “Yankees are baseball!” At least he had the decency not to point out that the

— John V. Vanscoy Benefit Committee Chairman Trustee, American Legion Post No. 586

Yankees are a professional team, not a college team like the Flyers. Oy. My knowledge of sports has thankfully steadily increased over the years, kind of out of social necessity. They’re a pretty big factor in many people’s weekend plans. To turn up your nose at going to a game means potential ostracism. A lot of times I’ll just go with the flow and pretend to be a sports enthusiast for the day. But when my alma mater is playing, I don’t have to pretend to be enthusiastic — I am. It provides the perfect opportunity to wear my favorite green OU shirt, mingle with fellow alums and possibly earn some bragging rights in the end, if they win. The game itself is alright, too. A couple of weeks ago my friend invited me to watch the Bobcats play at a bar. She said they were playing in some sort of Independence Bowl. Oooh, sounds important, I thought. So I fervently searched the

OU basketball website, trying to find the start time to figure out if I’d be off work. “I don’t see it online,” I said to Libby, figuring the site just hadn’t been updated. “It’s on there. 2 p.m.,” she responded. “What? I’m confused.” Just for the record, it was a FOOTBALL game, not a basketball game. Whoops, my bad. These things need to be clarified for people like myself. Regardless of the sport, I’ll probably gladly go, just to chat up anyone else who is disinterested. Also, arenas and stadiums tend to have some mighty good (but horrible for you) food. Also, beer. Meaning I’ll gladly feign interest just to spend an afternoon or evening in the company of great friends. Just don’t count on me to stand up and cheer.

Black Hand Gorge Ohio’s Licking River winds an east-west course through a high sandstone gorge known as the Licking Narrows. At the eastern end of the Narrows, the river cuts its smallest channel between twin cliffs. One twin rises to a height of 50 feet and overhangs the river approximately 15 feet. This is the Blackhand Rock, named for the large, dark, hand-shaped petroglyph that once marked this sandstone formation. The river’s deep passage between the twin cliffs is Blackhand Gorge. Historically, the area was very important. About 1,000 B.C., at the beginning of the Mound Builders era, use of the Vanport Flint from nearby Flint Ridge began to play an important role in the religious practices of the Adena and then the Hopewell cultures. Flint chips found atop Blackhand Rock indicate that it was a campsite and workshop. The black hand may have shown Native Americans who traveled from throughout the Eastern United States that they were close to the ridge and could leave their canoes to walk the last five miles to the campsite. The black hand also may have indicated the worksite as a place of peace. Many legends are tied to the black hand. According to one, the black hand marked the burial place of a missionary rabbi. Another said it was a stone slab bearing the Ten Commandments. Another said it marked the place where a Mingo Indian fleeing enemy Wyandots who had held him captive as a slave jumped to his death with a Wyandot maiden he loved. The sign of the hand itself is lost to modern viewers. In 1828, the Licking Narrows became part of the Ohio-Erie Canal. Workers blasted away the cliff face of Black Hand Rock that framed the image to make the towing path. By 1929, the canal was no longer in use. Eventually, new means of transportation—the steampowered central Ohio Railroad and then the electric CN&2 interurban trolley line—went through the gorge. Today, Blackhand Gorge is protected as one of Ohio’s scientific, educational and aesthetic treasures. Blackhand Gorge State Nature Preserve, and its 956 acres of rugged Blackhand sandstone, dry hilltops, wooded slopes and deep ravines, was dedicated in 1975 so future generations could enjoy the natural splendor and the stark remains of the old canal locks.

Words to Know: gorge sandstone aesthetic petroglyph interurban ravines For Discussion: 1. The canal builders didn’t think it was important to preserve the black hand petroglyph. Why did they think this? 2. Can you think of things today that might not last or exist in the future? What will be lost when they are gone or forgotten? 3. Which of the legends concerning the origin of the black hand do you like best? Why? Which do you think is mostly likely the real explanation? Why? 4. Blackhand Gorge State Nature Preserve has 10.26 miles of pedestrian trails. The average person can walk one mile in 20 minutes. How long would it take the average person to walk all of the trails?

Newspaper Activity: The Black Hand was a symbol, although no one knows exactly what it indicated. Modern companies and organizations use certain symbols, called logos, to represent them. Find examples of these logos in today’s newspaper. What does each represent? “Ohio: The Inside Story” is produced through a grant from The Ohio Newspapers Foundation, a nonprofit charitable and educational organization affiliated with The Ohio Newspaper Association. This is one of a series of 24 Ohio profiles.

The boy has no relationship with his father and is very fond of me, as I am of him. The problem is that he's a mama's boy. I think he is jealous of me. He competes for his mother's attention and goes so far as to crawl into bed with us in the morning in order to snuggle with her. When we sit on the sofa, he joins us and places his mother's arm around his neck as if to say, "Hey, what about me?" I've tried to ignore this behavior, but it is starting to wear on me. My girlfriend sees nothing wrong with it, saying they have always been close and it's always been just the two of them. But I think this isn't quite right. I want her son to grow up a bit. I raised three children and never experienced this type of thing with my kids. I feel she needs to do something to curb this behavior. Am I being insecure or territorial or something? I love my girlfriend and don't want this to be an issue, but I have no idea what to do. Any suggestions? — Don't Want a Contest Dear Contest: Many boys at 13 are still children, and the cuddling with Mommy is not indicative of an aberration. However, this is also a time when Mom should be setting sensible boundaries and gently discouraging too much intimacy. Some boys can confuse their love for Mom with their developing sexual feelings. Please approach this carefully. Suggest that the two of you talk to the boy's pediatrician about appropriate behavior, and make sure your girlfriend understands that her son's long-term best interests must take precedence. For information and assistance, we suggest the National Stepfamily Resource Center at Dear Annie: I married a wonderful widower nine months ago. We are both in our 60s, and he treats me like a queen. "Vern's" previous marriage of 34 years was a great one. When we married, he had lots of photos of his late wife. He thoughtfully removed them, but what upsets me is that he put a lot of them, including their wedding picture, in his home office where he spends 40 hours a week. Worse, the centerpiece of his bookshelves is the urn with her ashes. I told Vern I thought this was a little odd, but he said it would be disrespectful to put her ashes in a closet. What do you think? — Second Wife Dear Wife: Vern was thoughtful enough to remove these photos from your presence, and his office is his own private space. And we can understand why he wouldn't want to stick the urn in a closet. You can gently encourage Vern to scatter his late wife's ashes somewhere that has significance for him or ask whether he'd like to bury them. But if he is resistant, we suggest you leave this alone. Neither the photos nor the ashes are in your shared space. You have no reason to be jealous. Dear Annie: "Frustrated in Michigan" said she sent her college-aged nieces very generous checks and didn't get a thank-you note. She then called the mother of one of the recipients to see whether it had been lost. The check was then cashed, but still no thank-you note. In a situation like this, I wonder whether the giver is begging for attention. The gift was unsolicited. It almost seems as if the nieces are saying, "No, thanks, I'd rather do this myself." I have been the recipient of unasked-for gifts, and they almost always come with strings attached. — No Strings for Me Dear Strings: If a gift comes with unwanted strings, it need only be returned -- along with a note of thanks. But not to send any acknowledgement at all is extremely inconsiderate. Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HOW TO PLAY: Complete the grid so that every row, column and 3x3 box contains every digit from 1 to 9 inclusively. Find answers to today’s puzzle in tomorrow’s Troy Daily News. MONDAY’S SOLUTION:


So, honestly, what’s the rule on spices? Dear Heloise: I read your column every day in The (Fredericksburg, Va.) Free Lance-Star. My question is about how long you should keep spices. I know that when spices were in tins, they couldn’t be kept longer than a year, but now that they are in jars, does the same rule apply? — Virginia C., Stafford, Va. Well, Virginia, there are still some spices in tins, but the majority are sold in glass or small plastic containers. Here is a quick guide: • Ground spices are good for two to three years. • Whole spices, three to four

Hints from Heloise Columnist years. • Herbs, one to three years. • Seasoning blends, one to three years. To help keep the spices fresh, store them in a cool, dry place, and keep them out of direct light. If you are ever in doubt about spices, because the taste

or color is off, replace the spice. An added hint: Extracts usually are good for about four years. However, pure vanilla will last indefinitely! — Heloise EVAPORATED MILK Dear Heloise: Help! Will canned evaporated milk work as a substitute for milk when baking? — Sherril, via email Yes, evaporated milk can be used in place of milk in recipes! Many use it to add a richer, creamier flavor, so substitute it all you want! Added hint: Did you know that evaporated milk is real

milk? The milk is heated just enough to get rid of about half of the water that is in it. — Heloise P.S.: Evaporated milk is available fat-free and is wonderful to use in coffee or hot tea to boot! DRIED CRANBERRIES Dear Heloise: I like to put some dried cranberries in my salad, and I really like the orange-flavored ones, but I can’t seem to find them anymore. My solution is to add some grated fresh orange rinds to the newly opened package. This keeps just as well as ever. — Doris B., Spokane, Wash.



Wednesday, January 9, 2013













BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, Jan. 10, 2013 ARIES March 21 to April 19) Upsets with authority figures are likely today, especially this morning. Watch what you say, and don’t anger anyone. Stay flexible on your feet, and be ready to run. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Travel plans will be canceled or delayed this morning. Ditto for plans related to higher education, the media, publishing and the law. Expect detours and snafus. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Keep in touch with your bank account or with anything regarding insurance matters, inheritances and the responsibility you have for the wealth of others. Know what is happening. Something unexpected might catch you off guard. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Minor arguments with partners and friends might occur, especially this morning, because people feel frustrated. Why are they frustrated? Because things aren’t going their way. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Your job routine will be interrupted today due to computer crashes, power outages, staff shortages and canceled meetings. Everything is up for grabs. It’s a crapshoot. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is an accident-prone day for your children, so be careful. Be extra vigilant and keep them away from potential hazards, especially with electricity and explosives. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Small appliances might break down, or minor breakages could occur. You might run out of coffee at breakfast. (“Oh no!”) Family disputes are likely. Just maintain your cool. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is an accident-prone day for you, especially in the morning. It’s probably minor, but you might get hung up on something or caught in a traffic jam. Allow extra time for everything. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Keep an eye on your money and finances today, because surprises might occur this morning. You also might find money or lose money. You might lose or break a possession. Caution! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) The Moon is in your sign today at odds with unpredictable Uranus. This makes you feel rebellious and impulsive. Guard against knee-jerk reactions to things. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is definitely a restless day. You feel like you’re waiting for something to happen. Don’t let your distractions (mental or emotional) cause mistakes. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A friend might surprise you today, either pleasantly or unpleasantly. People in group situations definitely are unpredictable. If you sense this, give these people a wide berth. (Ya think?) YOU BORN TODAY You are a realist and can be blunt if that’s what it takes to get the job done. But you are a straight-shooter, and you’re honest. You don’t operate on a double standard. You can lead, but you also can follow. Good news! Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big!

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Wednesday, Jan. 9, the ninth day of 2013. There are 356 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 9, 1913, Richard Milhous Nixon, the 37th president of the United States, was born in Yorba Linda, Calif. On this date: • In 1788, Connecticut became the fifth state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. • In 1793, Frenchman Jean Pierre Blanchard, using a hot-air balloon, flew between Philadelphia and Woodbury, N.J. • In 1951, the United Nations

JobsOhio bond sale moves forward despite lawsuit COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s new private job-creation entity said Tuesday that it will move forward despite legal uncertainty with a nearly $1.2 billion bond sale intended to fund its 25-year lease of the state’s liquor business. JobsOhio and Republican Gov. John Kasich’s administration said the bond sale will be held Jan. 23, with proceeds going toward economic development grants. JobsOhio Chief Investment Officer John Minor and Kasich’s budget and commerce directors said they’re confident in moving forward after Moody’s and Standard and Poor’s issued favorable ratings Monday. “It’s valid to interpret the strong ratings received from two major rating agencies as recognition of the soundness of this

plan,” they said in a joint statement. Minor Moody’s issued an A2 rating, its sixth highest, with a developing outlook stemming from the unsettled lawsuit over JobsOhio’s constitutionality. S&P rated them AA, or very strong. The liberal group ProgressOhio, which sued the Kasich administration over JobsOhio along with two Democratic state lawmakers, said the administration is disregarding a constitutional prohibition against allowing a private entity to control public money. “There are serious legal questions about the funding of JobsOhio. Gov. Kasich’s own commerce director said his duty to uphold the Ohio Constitution was stopping him from moving JobsOhio forward until these questions were resolved,” the group said.

age even more residents to recycle. “We do have a lot of people who recycle,” McCord said, noting the program has made great strides since it was implemented three years ago. “Snow removal was a challenge during the holidays,” Busse said, noting that the forecast for warmer weather this week “will help us immensely.” Busse also reported an old paper shredder that quit working has been replaced by a larger shredder, which can handle up to 28 pages at a time. The village has installed 55 radio read

utility meters and work is continuing to put the high service pump back in service at the water treatment plant, according to Busse. In other business council: • Approved an ordinance establishing standard drawings for water system, sewer system and sidewalk construction in the village. • Approved the payment of $1,188 for village dues to belong to the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission. • Passed an ordinance for the village to enact the Ohio Basic Code for 2013.

CAUTION Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable. If you have questions regarding scams like these or others, please contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office at (800)282-0515.

That’s what the Covington Buccs did Monday night in a convincing 66-36 victory over Milton-Union to improve to 10-4 on the season. Jessie Crowell led Covington with 21 points, while Jackie Siefring scored 16 and Heidi Snipes added 10. Brooke Falb was MiltonUnion’s leading scorer with 13, Jordan Pricer added 11.

Crimson dynasty ’Bama wins 3rd BCS title in 4 years MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Barely taking time to celebrate their latest national championship, Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide are ready to get back to work. That’s how they make it look so easy. In what must be an increasingly frustrating scene for the rest of college football, another season ended with Saban and his players frolicking in the middle AP PHOTO of a confetti-strewn field.

The result was a 42-14 blowout in the BCS title game Monday night, not only making Alabama a back-to-back champion, but a full-fledged dynasty with three crowns in four years. This one was especially satisfying to Saban. “People talk about how the most difficult thing is to win your first championship,” he said. “Really, the most difficult one to win is the next one, because

TC loses to No. 5 Patriots Staff Reports When Troy Christian was on an eight-game winning streak, everything was going right for the Eagles. But on Tuesday night, things didn’t go the Eagles’ way in a 5640 loss to Division IV’s No. 5 ranked team, Tri-Village. Though Troy Christian (8-2) got open looks in the first half, shots were not falling, allowing Tri-Village (11-0) to open up a 20-point halftime lead. The Eagles actually outscored the

We made four of those 27 attempts. If we’re going to compete against the No. 5 team in the state, we are going to have to make more than that. “On a positive note, we were getting shots and didn’t turn the

Browns talking with CFL coach Marc Trestman

BCS Title

CLEVELAND (AP) — Marc Trestman’s coaching journey, which drifted into Canada, could bring him back to the Browns. A person familiar with the interview says the Browns are meeting with Trestman, the current coach of the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes and a former assistant with Cleveland. Trestman interviewed with the Chicago Bears on Monday night and arrived at the Browns’ facility in suburban Berea on Tuesday, said the person who spoke to the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the search. Trestman is the fifth known candidate to interview with the Browns, who fired Pat Shurmur last week after two seasons. Trestman coached the Browns quarterbacks coach in 1988 and was Cleveland’s offensive coordinator in 1989, when the Browns appeared in their third AFC title game in four years. He has extensive background as an NFL assistant, working with eight teams. Trestman has spent the past five seasons with Montreal, leading the Alouettes to two Grey Cup titles.

The 56-year-old is under contract through 2016, but the club will allow him to leave for an NFL job if he’s offered. In recent years, Trestman has worked as a consultant in the NFL and in the offseason helped develop young quarterbacks, including Cleveland’s Brandon Weeden. Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner have interviewed several coaching candidates and are expected to meet with more this week. The Browns are expected to interview Indianapolis offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who was released from a Baltimore hospital on Monday after he became ill before the Colts’ 24-9 playoff loss to the Ravens. Haslam and Banner conducted several interviews last week in Arizona. They spent the most significant amount of time with Chip Kelly, who after entertaining overtures from at least three teams, decided to return to Oregon. The Browns also interviewed former Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt, Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton, former Syracuse coach Doug Marrone, who was hired by Buffalo and Penn State’s Bill O’Brien.

■ CONTINUED FROM 13 there’s always a feeling of entitlement.” Rest assured, that feeling won’t last long in Tuscaloosa. While Saban insisted he was “happy as hell” and “has never been prouder of a group of young men,” it was hard to tell. He was already talking about reporting to the office Wednesday morning and getting started on next season. “One of these days, when I’m sitting on the side of the hill watching the stream go by, I’ll probably figure it out even more,” Saban said. “But what about next year’s team? You’ve got to think about that, too.” So, in short order, he’ll be talking with underclassmen about entering the NFL draft, making sure everyone goes back to class on schedule, and getting started on that next depth chart. “The Process,” as he calls it, never stops. “We’re going to enjoy it for 24 hours or so,” Saban said. No. 2 Alabama quieted the top-ranked Irish on the very first drive so much for waking up the echoes and could’ve started the celebration at halftime, heading to the locker room with a commanding 28-0 lead. The Tide (13-1) pushed it out to 35-0 midway through the third quarter on the third of McCarron’s four touchdown passes, a 34yarder to Amari Cooper with a defender nowhere in sight. At that point, Alabama was on a 69-0 blitz in national title games, having scored

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — The BCS title game’s television rating was up from last season, but the lopsided score kept viewership down. Alabama’s 42-14 rout over Notre Dame drew a 15.1 fast national rating Monday on ESPN, the network said Tuesday. The 26.4 million viewers were up 9 percent from last year’s game, another blowout Crimson Tide victory, 21-0 over LSU. But that’s down from the 27.3 million for ESPN’s first BCS championship two years ago, Auburn’s win over Oregon that was decided in the final seconds. This year’s game posted the second-largest audience in cable history behind the 2011 championship. The matchup between traditional powerhouses in Alabama and Notre Dame created the potential for a record-setting audience. But once the Crimson Tide went up 28-0 by halftime, viewers had reason to skip

the second half. Ten previous BCS title games drew a higher rating. Ratings represent the percentage of U.S. homes with televisions tuned into a program. The game was on in 17.5 percent of homes that get ESPN. The first half was watched by 20.4 percent, significantly higher than 17.9 for Auburn-Oregon. Typically viewership increases throughout a game if it is competitive. But on Monday, the rating peaked between 9 and 9:30 p.m. EST midway through the first half and decreased from there as Alabama pulled away. ESPN executives were hopeful of a massive audience but warned that it probably wouldn’t happen without a close game. CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves acknowledged that reality at a media day Tuesday about the network’s upcoming Super Bowl coverage. “Hopefully we don’t have a game like they had last night,” he said.

Johnson wins PGA Tour’s first event

KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) — Dustin Johnson ended a windy week with a wild ride Tuesday that carried him to the first win of the PGA Tour season. Despite hitting two drives into native areas that cost him three shots, Johnson never lost the lead at Kapalua. He closed with a 5-under 68 for a four-shot victory in the Tournament of Champions, though it was up for grabs with five holes remaining. Stricker came within a fraction of an inch of tying for the lead until his birdie putt peeled away from the cup on the 13th hole, which Johnson chopped up for a double bogey. With only a one-shot lead, Johnson pitched in from 50 feet in front of the 14th green to restore his three-shot lead,

and Stricker never challenged him after that. And so, the tournament that didn’t start until the fourth day because of a powerful wind finally ended with a guy who overpowered the Plantation Course. Johnson, who finished at 16-under 203, won for the sixth straight season. Only Phil Mickelson with nine straight years has a longer active streak of most consecutive seasons with a PGA Tour victory. Johnson also added a peculiar footnote to his record. He now has won the last three PGA Tour events reduced to 54 holes because of weather rain at Pebble Beach in 2009, a hurricane at The Barclays in 2011 and gusts that topped 40 mph in Hawaii that led to a bizarre season opener.

Knicks’ Anthony: I wanted to talk, not fight, with Celtics’ Garnett

■ CONTINUED FROM 13 the Yellowjackets to steal a 72-63 Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division victory Wednesday night. It was the second win of the year for Sidney (2-9, 2-2 GWOC North), and it was the Trojans’ (1-12, 1-3 GWOC North) second overtime loss of the year — and seventh in a row. But it wasn’t for a lack of effort. “They sure did (fight hard),” Troy coach Tim Miller said. “We just didn’t get the defensive stops we needed in the second half.” Especially on the last possession of it. Troy had the ball and a 62-60 lead with 40 seconds left, and Sidney elected to try for the steal instead of fouling and sending Troy to the line to get the ball back. The Jackets got the steal with 20 seconds to go — only Troy’s 10th turnover of the

game — but Tyler Miller blocked the potential gametying layup, with the ball going right into a Sidney player’s hand, allowing the Jackets to call timeout. Tre Hudson blocked another shot inside on the in-bounds play, then Sidney missed a 3. Daniel was fouled grabbing yet another offensive rebound, though, setting him up with a oneand-one. He sank both, Troy couldn’t get a shot off and the game headed to overtime. To that point, the lead had changed 14 times and been tied three times, yet Troy had maintained control for most of the second half despite struggling on the defensive end. “It’s a tale of two halves again,” Miller said. “It doesn’t matter what we do on the offensive end if we can’t dictate on the defensive end. We can’t afford to give up 36

in a half. We just can’t play a full four quarters.” This time, the four quarters weren’t the problem. Troy went 0 for 9 from the field in overtime, only getting a Dylan Cascaden free throw to go down. Sidney, however, got baskets in the paint from Eric Beigel and Conner Echols to take control, and a Daniel bucket inside made it 68-63 and all but sealed it with 40 seconds to go. The loss spoiled an outstanding performance by Miller, who was unstoppable for the first 32 minutes. Miller scored a game-high 29 points, including four 3pointers and a follow-up dunk on a teammate’s missed layup on the break. Jalen Nelson added 14 points, 10 rebounds and four assists, while Hudson had 10 points, eight rebounds and four steals. Tyree Manley led the

Jackets with 20 points and seven rebounds, Beigel had 17 points, Daniel 14 and Echols 12. Troy finishes its first run through GWOC North play — with all but one of those games coming on the road — at Piqua on Friday. Troy — 63 Luke Manis 1-0-3, Jalen Nelson 6-1-14, Connor Super 0-0-0, Tre Hudson 5-0-10, Tyler Miller 12-129, Devin Blakely 0-0-0, Dylan Cascaden 0-1-1, Taren Kinnel 3-0-6. Totals: 27-3-63.

Ohio State edges Purdue Buckeyes escape with 74-64 win behind Thomas’ 22 WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Deshaun Thomas scored 22 points to lead No. 15 Ohio State to a 74-64 victory over Purdue on Tuesday night. The angry Buckeyes (12-3, 2-1) rebounded from their first Big Ten loss by shooting 56.4 percent from the field. They took a 10-point halftime lead despite losing point guard Aaron Craft for all but 4:19 of the first half because of early foul trouble, and Buckeyes coach Thad Matta got his 100th Big Ten victory. Ohio State has won four of the last five in this series and eight of their last 10 overall. Purdue (7-8, 1-2) has lost two straight to Top 20 teams since upsetting No. 11 Illinois last week. The Boilermakers were led by the Johnson brothers, Terone, who had 18 points, and Ronnie, who had 11 points, six rebounds and seven assists. A.J. Hammons finished with 13 points and eight rebounds. But the Boilermakers never seriously challenged Ohio State after the Buckeyes took control with 13-2 and 9-0 runs in the first half. Instead, Ohio State relied on its usually good shooting. Thomas had a big hand in it and not just on the offensive end. He had seven rebounds. Yet it almost wasn’t good enough. The Boilermakers trailed 64-52 with 8:49 left in the game, and were still down 6854 with about 6 minutes to go. Purdue rallied with six straight points and got as close as 70-64 with when Terone Johnson made two free throws with 2:59 left. But the Buckeyes got a long jumper from Sam Thompson with AP PHOTO 1:41 to go and the Buckeyes Ohio State forward Sam Thompson (12) dunks over Purdue center A.J.

NHL owners to vote on contract today NEW YORK (AP) — NHL owners will vote Wednesday on the tentative labor agreement reached with the players’ union. If a majority approves, as expected, the NHL will move one step closer toward the official end of the long lockout that began Sept. 16. As of Tuesday afternoon, a memorandum of understanding of the deal hadn’t been completed, so the

union has yet to schedule a vote for its more than 700 members. A majority of players also must approve the deal for hockey to return to the ice. “We continue to document the agreement,” NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Associated Press in an email Tuesday. If there are no snags, ratification could be finished by Saturday and training

camps can open Sunday if approval is reached on both sides. A 48-game regular season would then be expected to begin on Jan. 19. “(We) don’t need a signed document to complete ratification process,” Daly wrote, “but we do need a signed agreement to open camps. The goal is to get that done by Saturday so that we can open camps on Sunday.” The NHL has yet to

edged Tuesday that he “allowed some negativity to come into my circle.” The NBA is investigating and has video evidence. It could decide to penalize Anthony, who said he shouldn’t be suspended. “Nothing happened for me to be suspended,” he said. “I wanted to talk to KG. I think it was something we both needed to get off our chest and see what really the problem was. No altercations, it was just some words and a conversation that we needed to have.” Anthony and Garnett had both received technical fouls with 9:03 remaining in the game after some physical play followed by jawing back and forth from the baseline to midcourt. After the Knicks’ 102-96 loss, Anthony went the wrong direction toward the Celtics’ locker room in hopes of finding Garnett. “It’s over with for me. Whatever happened last night, happened. The words that was being said between me and Garnett, it happened, can’t take that away,” Anthony said. “I lost my cool yesterday, I accept that, but there’s just certain things that push certain people’s buttons.”

The deal was reached Sunday on the 113th day of the lockout and seemingly saved the season that was delayed for three months and cut nearly in half. It took a 16-hour final bargaining session in a New York hotel for the agreement to finally be completed at about 5 a.m.

GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) — Carmelo Anthony said Tuesday he lost his cool after Kevin Garnett said things to him that he feels shouldn’t be said to “another man.” Anthony said he sought out Garnett after the Knicks’ loss to Boston on Monday night so they could discuss it. He would not elaborate on what was said. Anthony went toward the Celtics’ locker room and waited for Garnett outside the team bus. He said they have spoken and sorted out the matter. “There’s certain things that you just don’t say to men, another man,” Anthony said. “I felt like we crossed a line, but like I said, we both had an understanding right now, we handled it the way we handled it. Nobody needs to know what was said behind closed doors, so that situation was handled.” The All-Star forwards exchanged words during the game and Anthony clearly was affected. He shot 6 of 26, seeming at times in the second half to be most concerned with pushing and shoving Garnett, and acknowl-
