Obama hosts jobs roundtable Aims to reward businesses that invest in U.S.

Brown winter saves green


President Barack Obama greats UAW President Bob King during a roundtable meeting on Insourcing American Jobs, Wednesday, in the Old Executive Office Building on the White House campus in Washington. At right is White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett.

The warm, brown winter that has disappointed snow lovers in much of the U.S. has put more green in the pockets of state and local governments that had their budgets busted last year by the high cost of keeping streets and highways clear. Cities that normally spend millions on salt, sand and snowplows are happily saving the money for other purposes. Some are even taking advantage of the mild weather to carry on with outdoor projects that would usually have to wait until spring. See Page 9.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Flanked by business executives, President Barack Obama urged employers Wednesday to create jobs in the U.S. rather than ship them overseas and offered to propose tax incentives to help them. “I’m incredibly optimistic about our prospects,” Obama said about the economy after meeting with more than a dozen corporate and small business leaders whose firms have succeeded, to one degree or another, in bringing jobs back to the United States. A day after his Republican adversaries competed in the New Hampshire primary, Obama sought to grab back the spotlight and underscore his focus on the economy by convening a high-profile White House forum on how to increase employment and stem the

hundreds of thousands of jobs that have been sent overseas. Obama did not mention any of his potential Republican challengers during his public remarks. But two participants in the forum, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and United Steelworkers President Leo Gerard, compared Obama favorably to Mitt Romney, who on Tuesday won the New Hampshire Republican primary and solidified his lead over the GOP presidential field. Gerard said his union represented workers in companies that had been acquired by Romney’s former firm, Bain Capital, and that eventually shut down. “From our point of view, this president from day one has tried to

Saturday, LeVan’s dream of being part of the University of Dayton Flyers basketball team will come true. “I’m a big Dayton Flyers fan — that’s the only basketball team if you ask me,” said LeVan. LeVan will be on the sidelines as an official ball boy for Saturday’s matchup against La Salle University’s Explorers at 7 p.m., where he’ll get to cheer on his favorite Flyer — star forward Luke Fabrizius. “I cheer on the Flyers that’s for sure, but I’ve never been a ball boy before, so this is my first time,” LeVan said. “I’ve been to a few games and watch them on TV. They play tonight (versus St. Bonaventure) so I’m going to stay up late tonight.” LeVan has attended the Dayton Flyers’ father/son basketball camps for three years where he met and befriended Fabrizius — the Flyers’ starting forward. “Playing basketball at UD has not only given me a great education, but neat opportunities like this to give back to the community,” Fabrizius said in a phone interview Wednesday. “I’m so excited to see Ryan out there on Saturday, he’s a great kid.” Fabrizius said he got to know the LeVans through the basketball camps that Ryan and his father have attended over the years. “It’s a great way to meet people from the community and it’s an honor to have Ryan and families like his to come back to

The Troy Planning Commission kicked-off the new year Wednesday with a fresh look at the Summerfield Land Company’s revision to the Stonebridge Meadows general plan. Judy Tomb, of the Troybased Summerfield Land Company, was present, along with all members of the TPC. Troy City Council in December 2009 unanimously approved the Stonebridge Meadows rezoning and 135-lot residential development, located west of the McKaig Road and Ohio 718 intersection. The current proposal lists 134-lots with an increase in lot size. The proposal also includes an increase of housing phases from the approved five phases over a 7-10-year period, to seven phases over 10-to-14 years. The proposed development also increases lot sizes and removes the subdivision’s 4-acre private park. Planning and Zoning Director Tim Smith said the presentation of the new proposed Stonebridge Meadows general plan was for discussion purposes only and the new plan was not ready for recommendation until the next TPC meeting. Recommendation is planned for the TPC’s next meeting on Jan. 25. TPC chairman Alan Kappers said he would not be present at the Jan. 25 meeting and gave his opinion of the new proposal. He said his main concern was the new proposal no longer included a private park and decreased green space from the approved 12.3acre open space to 7.7 acres and a parkland dedication fee. “I don’t like the fact we are getting rid of a park and I certainly don’t want to give up more green space,” Kappers said. Kappers said public subdivision parks, such as Kensington, are

Alaska town orders shovels to dig out Winter storm left nearly 15 feet of snow in its wake ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — When you’re trying to clear nearly 15 feet of snow, a regular shovel just isn’t going to cut it. As residents in the fishing town of Cordova and 57 Alaska National Guard members tried to dig out, they learned that they didn’t have the right tool for the job. There were plenty of regular shovels around. But what they needed was a larger version with a scoop that can push a cubic foot of snow or better at a time. “That’s what’s missing in Alaska,” city spokesman Tim Joyce said. Not anymore. “We will be shipping 72 shovels to Alaska by plane tomorrow to help,” said Genevieve Gagne, product manager at the shovel’s maker, Quebec, Canada-based Garant. The new shovels cost about $50 each, and the city is paying for them with its emergency funds. The Yukon ergo sleigh shovels, with a 26-inch scoop, have a huge advantage over regular shovels. “Trying to lift snow all day with those is pretty backbreaking,” Joyce said. “We have the National Guard right now using the standard shovel, and they’re getting pretty trashed everyday not the shovels but the Guardsmen themselves,” he said. Since Nov. 1, storms have

Tomb said the park was eliminated to increase the number of “executive housing” for baby boomers or families with older children that may not need a homeowner association park. Tomb said families now prefer to have their own backyards recreation in lieu of a housing development park. Tomb also said the larger lots included the desired three-car garage that most executive, high-end housing developments request. Tomb said her research found that many families used the city’s parks for recreation or public ball fields for organized recreation at Duke Park or Knoop Fields.The new proposal includes a parkland dedica-

Troy Director of Public Service and Safety Patrick Titterington said Troy City Schools officials have been involved in discussions about including a sidewalk for students walking to Concord Elementary school. TPC vice-chairman Tom Force asked if the development’s sidewalk would increase the need for a traffic light at the intersection of State Route 718 and Washington Road. Troy City Engineer Deborah Swan said there may be an increased need for more signage if a sidewalk to the school is added. Swan said the Ohio Department of Transportation would make the decision for a traffic light in the future if needed.

dropped 176 inches of snow and more than 44 inches of rain on the town, about 150 miles southwest of Anchorage. Temperatures warmed overnight, and residents awoke to standing water because of stopped-up drains. The rain also made the existing snow heavier. The warmer temperatures about 35 degrees midday Wednesday brought another hazard to the Prince William Sound community of 2,200 people: avalanche danger. There’s one road leading out, and it was closed though it could be opened for emergency vehicles. The city also is warning people not to stand under the eaves of their houses to clear snow off the roof for fear the snow will come down on them. “There’s a real high potential that if it does slide, they’d be buried,” he said. So far, four commercial buildings and two homes have been damaged from snow accumulation on roofs. A 24-unit apartment complex also had to be evacuated. The short-term forecast doesn’t hold any good news. There’s more snow on the way, another 5-10 inches of it. Anchorage is expected to take the brunt of the storm, however. The National Weather Service is expecting anywhere between 9-18 inches in the state’s largest city.

• CONTINUED FROM A1 create jobs not cut jobs,” he said. As a result, the day had all the feel of a presidential counterpunch to the Republican candidates, particularly to and Romney, who has sought to portray Obama as a foe of free enterprise. Obama highlighted big and small firms ranging from Ford to a North Carolina specialty furniture company as examples of enterprises that have invested in the U.S. rather than abroad. He called on other companies to do the same with the help of government incentives. The White House says the president will propose $12 million in his 2013 budget to promote business investment from overseas in the United States. Obama has already proposed tax incentives, including a cut in employers’ Social Security taxes, to encourage more hiring. Congress has not acted on those measures. As if to underscore the 2244876

political stakes, Obama called for new jobs to take root, not in China or Germany, but “in places like Michigan and Ohio and Virginia and North Carolina,” all crucial states in his bid for reelection. “Right now, we’re at a unique moment, an inflection point, a period where we’ve got the opportunity for those jobs to come back,” Obama said. “And the business leaders in this room, they’re ahead of the curve, they recognize it.” But among the causes behind the new spate of hiring is the lack of wage growth in the United States over several years a fact that Obama often cites as an impediment for those wishing to rise to the middle class. Indeed, Hal Sirkin of Boston Consulting Group, a participant in the forum, told reporters that not only are U.S. workers more productive than Chinese workers, wages in countries such as China are rising at rapid rates. “It’s a simple mathematical equation. It’s changing,” he said. “And it will mean that it is a lot easier to retain jobs in the U.S. and it will be a lot easier to attract jobs back to the U.S. It’s not about the patriotism although I know everybody on stage with me here is just as patriotic. But it is about the underlying economics. And the economics are favoring the U.S. at this point at this time. And by 2015, we expect to see the beginning and these people

are the absolute beginning of the wave of ‘reshoring’ back to the U.S.” But any move towards insourcing is fighting a powerful trend: U.S. multinational corporations have been adding jobs overseas partly because that’s where an increasingly large share of their sales are. Companies in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index now earn more than half of their revenue from overseas. That has fueled a shift in jobs, with large U.S. multinational corporations reducing their U.S. employment while adding jobs in other countries. U.S. multinationals cut more than 800,000 jobs in the United States in 20002009, according to the Commerce Department. They added 2.9 million overseas in the same period, the most recent data available. The Great Recession and the sluggish recovery may have blunted that trend. Labor costs have fallen, particularly in manufacturing, as unions in many industries have accepted lower pay to preserve jobs. At the same time, businesses have cut costs and boosted efficiency. Productivity grew at the fastest pace in 18 months in last year’s third quarter. “The U.S. is becoming a pretty reasonable place to manufacture,” said Gary Clyde Hufbauer, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. “We are more competitive.”

The cookies are coming Girl Scout’s annual sale begins Friday For the Troy Daily News Beginning Jan. 13, girls in southwest Ohio will begin taking Girl Scout cookie orders. All Girl Scout Cookie Sale proceeds stay in the community. For a second year, Girl Scouts of Western Ohio will be offering customers a selection of the best-selling Girl Scout cookies of all time. Research shows that nearly all Girl Scout cookie customers have a favorite among these best sellers: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils and Do-SiDos. In addition, new this year is a lemon wedge cookie called Savannah Smiles, which pays tribute to the “100th Anniversary of Girl Scouting.” A total of six Girl Scout cookies are offered this year. “Girl Scouts is the best leadership development program for girls in the United States,” said Barbara J. Bonifas, CEO of Girl Scouts of Western Ohio.

MIAMI COUNTY “The Girl Scout Cookie Sale is a handson leadership and business activity where girls develop five essential skills — goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. Troops often decide to spend some of their cookie sale earnings investing in the community through service projects. “Our annual Girl Scout cookie activities, in addition to United Way funding, help us make the Girl Scout Leadership Experience available to all girls who want to participate,” Bonifas said. In addition to the money earned by the girls, Girl Scout cookie proceeds support leader training and camp operations, as well as a variety of Girl Scout program activities. Girl Scout cookies are made by Little Brownie Bakers. They sell for $3.50 a box.

Delicious ‘haystack’ is a family favorite We are now a week into 2012 and a whole new year lies ahead of us. I hope you readers had a blessed holiday season. This week husband Joe is back to work after a two-week break and our six youngest children will also go back to school. It was wonderful having everyone home but it is always nice to get back to a normal schedule. Friday, January 6, we went to Jacob and Emma’s house for dinner. We had a breakfast haystack which is almost like a regular haystack but you use breakfast foods. We had biscuits, broken into bite-sized pieces, fried potatoes, scrambled eggs, sausage, ham, tomatoes, green peppers, hot peppers, shredded cheese, onions, salsa, cheese sauce, and sausage gravy. By the time you put a little bit of everything on your plate you have a nice-sized haystack. This is the first time I had breakfast haystack. I think I prefer it over a regular haystack. A lot of people in the community have breakfast haystacks when they have their family Christmas gatherings. There are a variety of other foods that can be added to breakfast haystacks like olives, mushrooms, bacon, smokies and so forth. Also on the menu were Long John Rolls, cinnamon rolls, peanut butter bars, rhubarb, orange and V-8 juices,

We were glad for the help in cleaning up. Sister Emma, Jacob, and family came for awhile as Jacob wanted to say “hello� to all his cousins. Jacob is a first cousin to my husband Joe. Jacob’s joined in to help clean up. Before Friday we had managed to complete the 1000 piece puzzle.

Question: Did you make a New Year’s resolution? 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.


“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” — First Amendment, U.S. Constitution

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Globe and Mail, Toronto, on monitoring Syria: Recent events in Syria have claimed the Arab League as another casualty of Syria’s bloody crackdown. Continuing violence by security forces is showcasing the League’s impotence and irrelevance and dashed any hope that League observers might help stem the bloodshed. According to Syrian activists, the reverse is true — protesters have faced a growing assault since the observers arrived. Their mission appears to have been designed for failure. With 60 monitors on the ground and another 90 to follow, the number of atrocities is too many and their locations too vast for observers to even scratch the surface. The observers are completely dependent on the Syrian government for transport and security and are unable to speak to victims without tipping off authorities, who have reportedly hidden hundreds of detainees in off-limits military sites. Without unrestricted access to hot spots, the results of any observer mission will lack credibility. The choice of a Sudanese general to head the Arab League mission underlines why the League’s member states, many with atrocious human-rights records, are incapable of monitoring one of their own. The League’s lackadaisical approach to monitoring reflects the organization’s ambivalence. Comprised of despots who share much in common with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, not least their disdain for the human rights of their respective citizens, Arab League members were reluctant, just until two months ago, to pressure their old friend, al-Assad, to stop the massacres. Until now, the Arab League has merely lent legitimacy to an illegitimate process and helped prolong the abuses that the Syrian government continues to orchestrate unchecked. If it wishes to salvage what remains of its reputation, the Arab League should replace Lt.-Gen. al-Dabi, assign more observers and stop Mr. al-Assad from manipulating its mission. The Telegraph, London, on Middle East politics: Iran’s announcement that it had test-fired two missiles at the end of 10-day naval exercises in the Gulf was a sharp reminder of regional instability, whether in countries emerging from decades of dictatorship or still subject to arbitrary rule. During the exercises, the government said it would close the Strait of Hormuz, the entrance to the Gulf, were America and the EU to impose embargoes on its oil exports because of its uranium enrichment program. The Iranian threat has since been withdrawn but the confusing signals coming from Tehran have done nothing to calm nerves in a region racked by violence. In neighboring Syria, Iran’s only ally, President Bashar alAssad, has cocked a snook at Arab League monitors by continuing to fire on unarmed civilians. In that his regime provides a conduit for arming Hizbollah in Lebanon, its fall would be a setback for the Iranians. But there are promising new openings in another neighbor, Iraq, where the Shia prime minister, Nouri alMaliki, seems set on destroying the tripartite Shia/Sunni/Kurdish consensus on which the territorial integrity of the state depends. Meanwhile, the fulcrum of the Middle East, Egypt, is in the throes of transition between a dictatorship under Hosni Mubarak and representative government, an exercise which has so far favored Islamist parties and is due to end with presidential elections in June. Political uncertainty has deterred both investors and tourists, a devastating blow to an already weak economy. Still, in contrast to Iran, Syria and Iraq, Egypt is at least moving in the right direction. Success during the coming year in laying the foundations for a stable democracy will be of profound benefit to the region as a whole.


Please take good care of your dog To the Editor: I am appealing to present and future dog owners everywhere. PLEASE, if you decide you do not want your dog anymore (for whatever reason), or cannot take care of him or her anymore, take your dog to the pound, instead of leaving the dog to fend for himself or herself.

A few days ago my family was on a country road and crested a hill. A dog was crossing the street and although we braked hard were not able to stop; the dog was hit and mortally wounded, but did not die on impact. He lay in the ditch unable to move and fighting for breath. My heart was broken. The dog died painfully and unnecessarily because someone did not care enough, and either let the dog out unattended or

dumped (he was not wearing a collar). At least at the pound the dog has a fighting chance at another home, and if no one comes forward, he will die with dignity and painlessly. Please do not be so hard hearted and uncaring as to let your dog get hit, starve or attacked by other animals; they do not deserve that.

I just set the medical field back a century They assured me it would be a “routine” medical procedure. In my life, however, very few things are ever “routine” — and I frequently go out of my way to ensure this fact. About a month ago, I learned my esophagus had shrunk. Literally, I was stuffing food into my face faster than my body could get it to my stomach. The result was raging heartburn and nausea. I’ve grown up my entire life giving people raging heartburn and nausea — I wasn’t quite used to being on the other side of the fence. They told me they were going to have to stretch my esophagus. And that’s how, three days after christmas, I found myself at the Upper Valley Medical Center for what they assured me was a procedure they had done thousands of times before. “Sure,” I told them. “But have you ever had a patient as bad as me?” Turns out they hadn’t. The first thing my nurse Lisa — who shall, for the remainder of this column, be referred to as “Saint Lisa” for her kindness and patience in putting up with me — informed me they were going to

David Fong Troy Daily News Executive Editor have to put an IV in my hand. I warned her ahead of time I had an intense fear of both needles and an even more intense dislike of pain. Saint Lisa then told me about the hospital’s 1-10 “pain scale.” A 1 meant I was comfortable; a 10 meant I was in the worst pain of my life. She asked me how much pain I felt I could endure. “I’d say anything above a 3 likely will bring me to tears,” I told Saint Lisa. Minutes later I was screaming in agony as Saint Lisa was clutching my wrist. “Um, I haven’t actually put the IV in yet — I’m just swabbing the area with alcohol first,” Saint Lisa informed me. “That stuff stings!” I said as

— Doris Bercot Troy

tears began welling up in my eyes. “I think we’re going to move your pain endurance scale down to a 1,” she said, as she typed away on her laptop computer. As you might imagine, the day pretty much went downhill from there. Once the IV was in, Saint Lisa began telling me a little bit more about the procedure. She held up a 2-foot long piece of tubing. After they put me to sleep, they were going to stick this tube down in my mouth and down my throat, take some pictures and stretch my esophagus. The technical term for the procedure is an “endoscopy.” I, on the other hand, like to think of it as “sticking a garden hose some place where it has no earthly business going.” Just before the anesthesia kicked in and as I was falling asleep, they stuck a large piece of plastic into my mouth to help guide the tube down my throat. “I feel like I’m in one of those ‘Saw’ movies,” I tried to offer. But since I had a large piece of medical plastic in my mouth, it sounded a heck of a lot more like, “I thfmg ahgg mmm im mon off doss

thaw moomies.” I don’t remember much about the next half hour or so. My wife informed me that when I woke up, however, I was still half out of it and had several enlightening conversations with both Saint Lisa and my anesthesiologist regarding topics such as (but not limited to): the “Cathy” newspaper comic strip, the floral design on the hospital curtains and the Transformer movies. Before I left, Saint Lisa warned me that during the process, air had entered my stomach and for the rest of the day, I may feel strong urges to either “burp or pass wind.” “He does both of those all the time anyway,” my wife told Saint Lisa. “Why should today be any different?” And with that parting remark, I was on my way out the door with my stretched esophagus. Thanks to my doctor and nurses, my life has improved dramatically. I just wish I could say the same for them. Troy’s very own David Fong appears on Thursdays in the Troy Daily News.

Cancer center expansion project right on schedule For the Troy Daily News


The individual treatment rooms under construction in phase two of the UVMC Cancer Care Center expansion project have been designed with each patient’s needs in mind. Cancer Care Center staff members were involved in the design to ensure that the rooms accommodate today’s patient and offer an assuring environment, said Jean Heath, Cancer Care Center Director. The expansion project’s second phase involves construction off the UVMC main level. A new Cancer Care Center entrance will take clients and their families into a new waiting room, hospitality area and library. A kiosk planned for the library will allow patients and families to look up disease specific information, if desired. The new area also will include a multipurpose therapy room, a consultation room and the 10 individual infusion rooms with floor to ceiling glass overlooking a healing garden. “We’ve tried to think of the full aspect of treatment and planning, with the patient in mind. I am very, very excited about the individual rooms for patients,” Heath said. Each room was designed with a goal of allowing the patient individual space, she

said. The rooms feature a TV, heated massage chair, controlled lighting so if the patients wants lights dim or up for reading and a controller to adjust blinds for additional light control in the room. “I have really enjoyed working with staff that will be working there. Staff has helped in design and functionality of the facility looking at what is it that is going to help the patients feel more relaxed and have an environment that is warm and inviting,” Heath said. The expansion’s first phase involved remodeling the center’s lower level home to accommodate a second linear accelerator for cancer radiation therapy treatments. That area was unveiled last spring. The center is seeing 35 to 40 patients a day on the new accelerator and the new area “is working out well,” Heath said. Both areas have been created to reflect a natural environment theme with looks of wood and bamboo. Heath said construction has gone smoothly and is on schedule. A grand opening is being planned for late spring. To learn more about the UVMC Cancer Care Center, call 440-4820 or log on to

Covington BOE members tackle a full agenda BY JENNIFER RUNYON For the Troy Daily News The Covington Exempted Village Board of Education met Wednesday night with many items on the agenda. Superintendent Dave Larson updated the board on the possibility of a building project with the Ohio School Facilities Commission. District leaders are not eliminating the OSFC building project as an option and Larson said a meeting is scheduled with a member of the OSFC to review changes to the Ohio Revised Code that may make a future project easier to achieve. Larson also shared that the district will be adding the StudentWatch Suite. The suite, by WORKS International, includes a behavior management system. Covington personnel are already using Public School Works in the EmployeeSafe Suite by the same company for safety training to meet requirements. The new technology will allow for bullying to be reported online. It also works with the Dazzle program the district uses which will allow parents to be con-

COVINGTON tacted. The suite rewards positive behavior as well and keeps record of the students throughout their entire time at Covington. “We think it will provide a more seamless transition between buildings,” Larson said, adding that if a student has a problem in seventh grade and then again in high school, the high school principal would be able to see the details of the problem and how it was dealt with in seventh grade. “It gives us the ability to have data behind what’s working and what’s not,” Larson said. The suite will cost the district $4, 196 for the first year. The cost for subsequent years will be $3,000 plus $2,995 for the EmployeeSafe Suite for a total of $5,995. Board members also got an update on the two buses purchased from Georgia. The first bus is expected to be complete this weekend and will undergo inspection after that. Work will then begin on the second bus. Larson also shared that he is still working with the district’s former insurance company regarding storm damage to all the building’s

roofs. One company viewed the roofs and said not much hail damage was seen while another company saw more. All involved will meet today to discuss the findings. The 2012-13 school calendar was approved at the meeting. This calendar has the first day of school being Aug. 22 and the last day being May 24. Like this year’s calendar, next year’s doesn’t have a full week for spring break. Larson said this was done to allow school to be out before the weather gets too hot and because it allows for more preparation before state achievement testing. Parents will be asked to provide feedback about this type of setup at the end of this school year. Prior to the regular meeting, the board held an organizational meeting during which new member Jon Furrow took the oath of office. Also during this meeting, Dr. Dean Pond was re-elected president and Brad Hall was re-elected vice president. Board members also decided to change their meeting dates to the third Thursday of every month rather than the third Wednesday as is currently. The next regularly scheduled board meeting will be held at 6 p.m., Feb. 16.

TROY — Joseph Calvin Kennedy, 58, of Troy, Ohio, passed away at 9:43 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2012, at his residence after an extended illness. He was born June 2, 1953, in Belem, Para, Brazil, and he came to the United States to register his birth for U.S. citizenship. He returned to Brazil when he was 8 years old and entered the seminary to start his path to the priesthood. In 1994, he inherited four nieces when his brother and sister-in-law died in an automobile accident and he brought them back to the U.S. In 2006, he developed stomach cancer and lost his business. In 2008, he lost his home, automobile, everything. He made his way north, lived under a bridge, in three abandoned buildings and was taken to the Buckeye House, then to St. Joseph’s. It is then when his church became his

family and Troy became his home. He was diagnosed with liver cancer in May 2009 and given about one year to live, but he lived by faith, knowing his life was in God’s hands. Joseph received his master’s degree in music. He was a priest and a real estate broker. He worked with Master Hand Ministries the last years of his life and served the Lord with his voice, singing in many churches in the area. A service will be at 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 14, 2012, at Troy Gospel Tabernacle with the Rev. Ray Horton and Pastor Rich Baker officiating. Interment will be in Miami Memorial Park, Covington.

Call adult protective services Dear Annie: I have a friend in Alabama who is being physically and mentally abused by her adult son. I've called domestic abuse hotlines for information, and I gave my friend a phone number to call in case she needed someone to talk to. She seemed happy that I was looking out for her, and that I had her in my thoughts and prayers. Unfortunately, two weeks ago, I lost contact with her and don't know where to turn. I've sent emails, texts and letters and have made phone calls, but haven't heard anything back. To say I'm worried would be an understatement. Any advice would be helpful. — Concerned Friend in Warren, Ohio Dear Concerned: We shudder to think of the devastating scenarios that are possible. Please contact the Alabama Adult Protective Services hotline at 1-800-458-7214 and ask them to investigate the situation. We hope your friend is OK. Dear Annie: I am trying to decide whether I should leave my marriage of almost 50 years. During the years when we both worked, my husband and I spent many hours at our jobs, and I pretty much raised our children myself. Now that we are retired and have the time to spend together, he has no interest in being with me. I am still fairly attractive at the age of 70. I would love to go on vacations and am also interested in a sex life. My husband, however, couldn't care less. He saw a doctor regarding his inability to have sex, but had no success and gave up. He keeps himself busy, but he has locked me out both physically and emotionally. I would be happy kissing, hugging and cuddling, but he scoots so far away, I am surprised he does not fall off the bed. Even when watching TV, he will put on programs he knows I don't care for, and if I object, he goes into another room. We seem to have nothing in common anymore, except our grandchildren. He enjoys being with them. But I am lonely. I have a network of friends, many of whom are widows who say I would be crazy to leave him. I am afraid of making a mistake at my age, but living like this is miserable. Am I too old to start over? — Lonely in New York Dear New York: No, but you have to be willing to be alone, because that is a possibility. Your husband is probably afraid that cuddling, kissing and hugging will leave you with raised expectations. We are certain he is no happier about this situation than you are. Please ask him to go with you for counseling to see whether the two of you can find a way to work through this. A professional can help guide you. Dear Annie: I really enjoyed your response to "Worried Hubby," whose wife receives a lot of flirtatious attention from "Harry" when they eat out. I have been in situations where men have approached me like this. My husband makes sure he is nearby and always strikes up a conversation with the guy. Later, when we are alone, my husband compliments me and says he understands why I attract other men. He then tells me how lucky he is to be married to me. I also have had the situation reversed and have seen women be attracted to my husband. It serves as a reminder of all his great qualities and of why I married him. I remember to compliment him, as well. I also make sure that I keep things special in our marriage by being an attentive "girlfriend." What with technology keeping people in touch and both spouses on the go, it is so important in today's world that we make time for our marriage. — Iola, Wis. Dear Iola: Although it is important that neither spouse enjoys the attention of others too much, you are wise to understand how flirting with your partner can keep a marriage fresh.

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. YESTERDAY’S SOLUTION:


When rental cars become a problem Dear Readers: Here are more rental-car responses from readers commenting on the column where a reader had to pay for damage to the roof of a rental car. The renter said she didn’t do the damage, but the company still held her responsible. • Fred T., via email, says: “We had a similar problem. A day after renting a car, I noticed a dent on the back fender near the taillight. I knew we didn’t cause this to happen, and after looking carefully I could see rust on the exposed area and a cracked lens cover. I took several photos for documentation. We fretted and worried the remainder of our vacation. Upon returning the car, we were notified of the damage and that

Hints from Heloise Columnist we would be billed. I said we didn’t do it and explained (with no mention of the photos). She left for a few minutes and returned with the same answer. I stood strong and asked her to go check on the car’s rental record. Lo and behold, this time she found that this damage was listed from a previous renter.”

• Pati, via email, says: “As most people have to have a credit card to rent a car, they should be aware that many credit-card companies will provide insurance for damage as part of renting the car with the card. This is unknown by many, and car-rental companies will not tell you, as they want to sell insurance to make money.” • Suzanne Cook of Prescott, Ariz., says: “The same thing happened to me, and I was livid. I did some research and found that this is similar to a scam. I challenged the ’bill,’ using advice I found on several different websites. It also helped that I had a witness. I copied that state’s attorney general’s office and asked

for an investigation into the charge. Shortly thereafter, the company backed off and retracted the charge.” • Alan Pressman of Old Bridge, N.J., says: “I would contact customer service at the company’s main offices, explain the situation and seek resolution from there since she states that neither she nor the rental agent at origin checked the roof of the vehicle at the time of the rental. You also can check with your credit-card company and personal car insurance for reimbursement possibilities.” Seems this is more common than many are aware of. — Heloise P.S.: Visit my website, www., for direct links to my Facebook and Twitter pages.



Thursday, January 12, 2012










HOROSCOPE Thursday, Jan. 12, 2012 Much of the preparation and all of the studying you’ve done over the past several years will be utilized to your advantage in your present field of endeavor. Don’t be surprised if the payoff is far larger than you anticipated. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Because you’ll instinctively know how to make life a fun game that attracts lots of other players, it’s likely that your influence over your peers will be rather remarkable. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Don’t get all in a dither over some big changes for you that are being engineered by other people. What they put together could be better than what you could do yourself. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Three pals of yours with whom you are very close might introduce some interesting new elements into your social life. You’ll find them fun and intriguing, as will they. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — There are more than a few opportunities hovering about that could benefit your career and finances. Don’t make light of them — squeeze out every last drop of potential. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — If possible, give vent to your spirit of adventure and do something different. You could make what otherwise would be a boring routine into something scintillating. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Although you like joint involvements and you’re lucky with them, it’s important to avoid teaming up with someone who fails to grasp the adventurous nature of what you’re trying to do. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Something good can be done to strengthen an appealing relationship. This alliance has the possibility of becoming more than just a friendship. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — You’re in a financial cycle at the moment that can have propitious peaks as well as devilish lows. Right now, the sun is likely to be shining, so make plenty of hay while you can. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — No one will resent you stepping in and taking charge when they are struggling to keep their heads above water. In fact, they will greatly appreciate you saving them from drowning in their own financial turpitude. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Everything is moving in your favor at the moment, so put the final touches on a matter that has been giving you fits; now’s the time to get it out of the way once and for all. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You have a marvelous ability to elevate the level of hopes, aspirations and expectations of those with whom you’re closely involved. Surprisingly, what benefits them will help you as well. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Major achievements are possible with both your career-related and financial affairs. Even if there are some connections between the two, treat each sphere individually. COPYRIGHT 2012 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Thursday, Jan. 12, the 12th day of 2012. There are 354 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 12, 1912, textile workers at the Everett Mill in Lawrence, Mass., (most of them immigrant women) walked off the job to protest wage cuts. The “Bread and Roses Strike,” as it came to be known, spread to other mills in Lawrence and lasted until the following March.

On this date: • In 1519, Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I died. • In 1773, the first public museum in America was organized in Charleston, S.C. • In 1828, the United States and Mexico signed a Treaty of Limits defining the boundary between the two countries to be the same as the one established by an 1819 treaty between the U.S. and Spain. • In 1915, the House of Representatives rejected, 204-

174, a constitutional amendment giving women the right to vote. • In 1932, Hattie W.

Brown winter means more green This story is the latest installment in a joint initiative by The Associated Press and Associated Press Media Editors on the fiscal crisis facing U.S. states and cities, how state and local governments are dealing with severe budget cuts, and how American lives will change because of it. ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The warm, brown winter that has disappointed snow lovers in much of the U.S. has put more green in the pockets of state and local governments that had their budgets busted last year by the high cost of keeping streets and highways clear. Cities that normally spend millions on salt, sand and snowplows are happily saving the money for other purposes. Some are even taking advantage of the mild weather to carry on with outdoor projects that would usually have to wait until spring. “There’s a sigh of relief,” said Chris Sagsveen, who manages road and bridge operations in Hennepin County, Minnesota’s most populous because it includes Minneapolis. In 2011, his department spent its entire snow-removal budget for the year by the end of March. He dreaded the potential for another fearsome winter. But the

county barely spent a penny in the final months of 2011. So far this year, it hasn’t tapped the snow budget once. For virtually the entire season, cold air has been bottled up over Canada. La Nina, the cooling of the equatorial Pacific Ocean that affects weather worldwide, has nudged the jet stream farther north. And air pressure over the northern Atlantic has steered storm systems away from the East Coast. In Minnesota and North Dakota, crews have parked their snowplows and are patching roads and highways instead. Chicago spent just $500,000 on plowing in December, down from $6 million a year earlier. In Buffalo, N.Y., public works overtime is down by 25 percent, and the city has saved more than $300,000 on salt. Syracuse, N.Y., one of New York’s snowiest cities, has had 13 inches this winter compared to an unusually heavy 77 inches by this time last year. Public Works Commissioner Pete O’Connor said he’s saved $500,000 in salt, overtime and fuel. “This is Mother Nature’s way and a lot of praying on my part,” O’Connor said. Instead of plowing, his crews are out collecting

In St. Paul, where a few meager snowfalls have melted within days, the temperature hit a record 52 on Tuesday — a read-

ing more appropriate for April. The story is the same across most of the country. Marathon County, Wis., spent half as much to plow snow last month as the $600,000 it forked out in December 2010.

North Dakota’s snow-removal costs fell by nearly half, to $1.6 million through November. And overtime at one state shop in Bismarck plunged from almost 6,000 hours last winter to almost nothing.

Conn. gov seeks storm exercises, utility standards SIMSBURY, Conn. (AP) — Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced Wednesday that he will propose legislation that could lead to new performance standards for all utilities and could penalize them with fines if they fall short in their response to storms and other emergencies. “Other states have moved in that direction. I think it’s time that we moved in that direction,” Malloy said. “We need to have standards and we need to hold people accountable to those standards, with the expectation that they are actually going to meet those standards.” The proposal is part of a package of recommenda-

tions to improve Connecticut’s disaster response following Hurricane Irene in August and a freak October snowstorm, both of which knocked out electricity to much of the state for days. Malloy unveiled his initiatives during a news conference in Simsbury, where some residents were left without power for 12 days after the October storm. The Democratic governor’s initiatives come days after his working group released 82 recommendations. The group, called the Two Storm Panel, was charged with reviewing the preparedness, response and recovery efforts of the state, utilities, municipalities and

others following the remnants of Hurricane Irene and the October snowstorm. A private firm, Witt Associates, recently provided Malloy with additional recommendations following its review of how the state’s electric utilities prepared for and responded to the two massive storms. Malloy’s administration used the two reports, plus its own work, to come up with the package of proposals. “I hope, along with a lot of folks, that we never have a year like we just had,” Malloy said. “But we can’t count on that.” Some of the proposals can be imposed by state agencies; an executive order signed by Malloy; the Public

Utilities Regulatory Authority, or PURA; or legislative action. Some of the details of the proposals are still being determined. Malloy’s plan calls for increasing the Department of Transportation’s $550,000 tree maintenance budget by $1 million and holding a real-time statewide preparedness training exercise before September at a cost of up to $650,000. He also proposed a pilot program to create micro-electric grids in city centers, generating power for a limited location. Daniel Esty, commissioner of the state’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, said there are also plans to

launch an enforcement division under PURA to monitor how well utilities comply with any new rules and standards. Esty said work still needs to be done to determine how best to create performance standards for the utilities, including electric and wireless communications. He said a similar law in Massachusetts hasn’t led to penalties because the standards that the utilities must meet, such as restoring power within a certain amount of time, have been difficult to benchmark. “I would really like to look across the country at what the best practices are and try to adopt that from wherever they are,” he said.

“I don’t know if Massachusetts has the definitive model, but we will look carefully and try to create something that’s workable.” Esty said the number of on-staff line utility crews could be part of the standards set by PURA. Malloy said he also plans to ask PURA to take up the issue of “hardening,” or strengthening, the state’s electrical system to help prevent outages. An official from Connecticut Light & Power, the state’s largest electric utility, recently suggested that reliability could be improved with a $2.5 billion investment in hardening some of the electric infrastructure.

Buries late 3 to give Troy victory COLIN FOSTER Sports Writer When Troy’s offense needed a jump-start late in the third quarter, Kristen Wood was up for the task. And when the Trojans needed a little late-game magic in the fourth, Wood was once again ready. With time running down and the game tied at 27-27, Wood got open and nailed a triple — her third 3 of the quarter — from the left elbow with 2.3 seconds remaining, putting the finishing touches on an 11-4 Troy run in the fourth and giving her team a 3027 victory over Miamisburg at the Trojan Activities Center on Wednesday.

Troy junior point guard Kristen Wood buries the game-winning 3-pointer with less than 10 seconds remaining with Miamisburg’s Jessie Matthews contesting the shot Wednesday night at the Trojan Activities Center. Troy won the game 30-27.

TROY “We just let her play it out,” Troy coach Nathan Kopp said. “We wanted the ball in her hands. I didn’t want to call a timeout because I didn’t want to take a chance at something bad happening. The play was spread in our motion offense. Her defender went under the screen. She got an open look and she knocked it down.” Wood scored a game-high 15, with 10 of those points coming in the fourth quarter. “She had one point at half,” Kopp said. “I told her, ‘you need to be the best player on the court,’ and she ended with 15. She needs to step up like that. “When she’s hitting shots like

No record is safe Devils’ Calhoun sets new school series mark Staff Reports


Covington’s Brian Olson maintains control of Troy’s Kevin McGraw during a 182-pound match in a quad at Miami East Wednesday.

Keeping focus Buccs battle back, sweep Troy, Tipp at East BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor Troy coach Doug Curnes knew it would come down to one match. So did Covington’s Brian Olson.

CASSTOWN Olson (182) caught Troy’s Kevin McGraw in a five-point move early during the opening dual of a quad Wednesday night in the old gymnasium at Miami East High School, and the two battled to a standstill the rest of the way with Olson scoring the key 7-2 decision to earn three big points in a 39-36 Covington victory. “We looked at all the possible Miami East’s Allen Seagraves spins behind Tippecanoe’s Logan scenarios, and we knew Kevin’s Mangen during a 120-pound match at a quad at Miami East ■ See WRESTLING on 15 Wednesday.

Steven Calhoun wanted to make sure the girls team didn’t get to have all the fun. The day after a number of Tippecanoe girls school records fell, Calhoun posted a new school-record high for a series against Tecumseh, leading the boys to a 2,674-2,419 bounceback victory Wednesday at Troy Bowl. On Tuesday, the boys fell to Greenon in a tight match. But on Wednesday, led by Calhoun’s games of 241-277 for a 518 series, the Devils (8-3, 7-2 Central Buckeye Conference) couldn’t be stopped.

TROY “Congrats to the boys for getting back on the winning side of things, and congrats to Steven for shooting the school record,” Tippecanoe coach Clay Lavercombe said. “He almost had the high game, too. The boys bowled great as a team.” Ryan Rittenhouse rolled games ff 202-194 for a 396 series, Logan Banks rolled 170-201— 371 and Luke Nimer rolled 161166—327 to lead the Devils. The girls — who set school records for a team single game and team two-game series on Tuesday — weren’t as fortunate, falling 2,145-2,068 to the Arrows. “We’ve got to make our spares. That’s the name of the game,” Lavercombe said. Caitlin Wolff — who set the school record for a girls series Tuesday — led the way with 191175—366. Jenny Korleski rolled 131-149—280, Jordan Amspaugh rolled 160-114—274, Chelsea Brown rolled 124-132— 256 and Rebecca Milas rolled 136-114—250.

Reds welcome Larkin back to Cincy CINCINNATI (AP) — Spending his entire 19-year career with his hometown team makes election to the Hall of Fame even more special for Barry Larkin. Speaking Wednesday at Great American Ball Park, his home field for the last two years of his career, Larkin recalled almost leaving the Reds for the New York Mets in 2000. But the proposed trade fell through when the Mets refused to give him a three-year contract extension. Larkin considered playing for St. Louis and Washington in 2005 but couldn’t leave. “I didn’t feel like I could give my heart and soul to another organi-

zation,” Larkin said. Members of the Reds’ organization, former players and politicians were on hand to welcome the franchise’s newest Hall of Famer. Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory presented Larkin with a copy of resolution congratulating him that was approved Wednesday by the city council. Hamilton County Commissioner Greg Hartmann added praise. “At a time when role models are few and far between, Barry Larkin stepped up for 19 years” Hartmann said. Sharing the stage with Larkin was what Hall of Fame broadcaster Marty Brennaman described as

the “first family of Cincinnati” Larkin’s wife Lisa, parents Shirley and Robert and two of his three brothers, Stephen and Byron. Also on hand were Larkin’s coaches at Moeller High School which also produced major leaguers such as Ken Griffey Jr. and Buddy Bell and the scout who signed him. They were all part of a large support group Larkin credits with his success. He plans an event sometime during the season. • Madson, Reds agree to deal

CINCINNATI — Free-agent closer Ryan Madson and the Cincinnati Reds reached an oral agreement on an $8.5 million, oneyear contract, according to a per-

son familiar with the deal. Madson saved 32 games in 34 chances last year for NL East champion Philadelphia. was the first to report the right-hander’s agreement with Cincinnati. The contract is subject to a written agreement and a physical, according to the person who spoke Tuesday night to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been finalized. Madson replaces Francisco Cordero as the closer in Cincinnati. Cordero remains a free agent after the Reds declined a $12 million option.

A.J. Oullette (170), Olson and Justin Daniel (195) reeled off three straight pins to cap off the wrestling on the mats, and Covington won 48-21 once forfeits were tallied. “They always put together a good team,” Tippecanoe coach Myron Krebs said of Covington. “We wrestled some good matches in there, but those bonus points count. We told the kids that it could be tight and to get pins where they could.

“Ben Patzek had a match against great Deeter, but in the last 30 seconds he got caught and got pinned. We would’ve been happy just giving up the three points for a decision there. At at 120 we had a freshman, a secondyear wrestler, and he fought hard to the end but got pinned late. Those bonus points count.” “Tipp had some good matches. They’re improving,” Barbee said. Tippecanoe is back at it Saturday at the Lima Invitational, Troy travels to Carroll for a quad Jan. 19 — the same night Covington faces Coldwater in a dual — and Miami East faces Brookville Jan. 20.

Getting back to normal Xavier gets back-to-back wins for 1st time since brawl CINCINNATI (AP) — With its defense fully dug in, Xavier had a throwback game, one that reminded the Musketeers of those heady days at No. 8. Freshman Dez Wells dunked his way to 16 points with nine rebounds, and Xavier’s defense was back in form for the first time in a month, steadying the Musketeers to a 78-50 victory over Duquesne on Wednesday night. Xavier (11-5, 2-1 Atlantic 10 Conference) got back-toback wins for the first time since a brawl against rival Cincinnati on Dec. 10 resulted in suspensions and left a formerly No. 8 team struggling to regain its confidence and defensive toughness. Consider them back. “It just felt like we were getting back to normal and everybody was involved,” forward Andre Walker said. “It was a good feeling.” The Musketeers were in the right place to do it the Cintas Center, where they’ve won a league-record 41 straight A-10 games. This one quickly turned into their most lopsided win of the season. Xavier pulled ahead 4416 by halftime, the Musketeers’ stingiest opening half in three years. It was by far the worst showing for Duquesne (10-7, 1-2), which led the A-10 in scoring at 77.7 points per game. Defense was Xavier’s strength as it opened 8-0, then became its biggest problem as it worked through four player suspensions from its brawl during a 23-point win over


Xavier forward Jeff Robinson (21) goes up for a basket against Duquesne guard T.J. McConnell (20) and forward Mamadou Datt (34) during the first half Wednesday in Cincinnati. Cincinnati. Finally, the Musketeers were back. “It’s what we’ve been preaching,” coach Chris Mack said. “We’ve got to continue to sustain it.” Four players reached double figures. Tu Holloway had 11 points and 11 assists, and Xavier’s taller front line dominated the boards 40-29. Sean Johnson scored 12 for Duquesne, which had a season low in points and shot only 35 percent from the field against a team that reminded coach Ron

Everhart of the 8-0 Musketeers. “Yeah, and in some ways even better,” Everhart said. With two wins in a row, Xavier had a sense it was pulling out of its rut five losses in six games after the suspensions. “We’ve got to put everything behind us, the bad and the good,” Walker said. “We’ve got to start fresh.” The Dukes went only 2 of 15 with five turnovers while Xavier surged ahead 20-7. The Musketeers closed the half with a 24-7 spurt that

featured two highlight alleyoop dunks by Wells off passes from Holloway and Mark Lyons. Reserve forward Jeff Robinson had a season-high 10 points in the half, helping the Musketeers dominate the smaller Dukes upfront. Wells had another fastbreak alley-oop dunk off a pass from Brad Redford in the second half. No. 1 Syracuse 79, Villanova 66 PHILADELPHIA — Dion Waiters scored 20 points and No. 1 Syracuse remained undefeated with a 79-66 win over Villanova on Wednesday night. No. 2 Kentucky 68, Auburn 53 AUBURN, Ala. — Anthony Davis and Doron Lamb scored 14 points apiece, and Kentucky finished an uneven performance with a flourish to beat Auburn. No. 9 Missouri 76, Iowa State 69 AMES, Iowa — Matt Pressey led five players in double figures with 14 points and Missouri bounced back from its first loss of the season to beat Iowa. No. 13 Michigan 66, Northwestern 64, OT ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Trey Burke scored 19 points including Michigan’s last eight of overtime to help the Wolverines hold off Northwestern. No. 25 Marquette 83, St. John’s 64 MILWAUKEE — Davante Gardner had career bests with 22 points and 15 rebounds to lead Marquette over St. John’s.

■ CONTINUED FROM 14 that, that makes us dangerous.” The first quarter included three lead changes and two ties, but Miamisburg closed out the quarter on a 7-0 run, capped off by a Macey Riese 3-pointer to give the Vikings a 10-5 lead going into the second. Zechariah Bond led the Troy comeback in the second, scoring the Trojans’ first five points of the quarter to cut the deficit to 12-10. The Trojans connected on 6 of 9 from the line in the quarter, narrowly bridging the gap to 16-13 at half. “Zechariah Bond played big for us,” Kopp said. “The freshman stepped up. She was active around the basket and was able to get to the line a lot. She really helped keep us in it.” Emily Leonard sneaked behind the Troy defense for a layup to help launch a 5-1 Miamisburg run at the start of the third, giving the Vikings a 21-14 lead early. But Wood got Troy off the snide, converting on the Trojans’ first field goal on the second half with 3:30 to play in the quarter. She then went coastto-coast for a layup after causing a Miamisburg turnover — and it was all Trojans after that. Wood canned back-toback 3s to start the fourth, giving Troy a 2523 lead — its first lead since a 5-3 advantage in

the first quarter. Leonard’s bucket tied the game at 25-25 with two minutes to play, before Todda Norris went 1 for 2 at the free throw line to give troy a 26-25 lead. Wood also went 1 for 2 at the line to push the Troy lead to two, before Miamisburg’s Jessie Matthews tied the game on a layup. “I look up at the scoreboard and it’s 23-16,” Kopp said. “It ended up 30-27. So we closed on a 14-4 run. We got some momentum, and we were able to keep them from getting the ball inside. “When you hold a team to 27 points, you should win. It wasn’t pretty, more often than not this year hasn’t been pretty, but we keep finding a way.

RG3 going pro WACO, Texas (AP) — When Robert Griffin III arrived at Baylor four years ago with new coach Art Briles, the Bears had never even had a winning season in the Big 12. Standing in the confetti celebration last month after the Bears won their first bowl game in nearly two decades for a 10-win season, the exciting dual-threat quarterback knew in his gut it was time to move on to the next level.

Griffin made it official Wednesday, announcing he would skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft after a college career in which he set or tied 54 school records in 41 games. It was a month and a day after RG3 became the first Baylor player to win college football’s highest individual honor. “Obviously you want to leave something better than you found it,” Griffin said. “I can say we’ve done that.”

action. He’s really rolling right now, and we don’t want him to get stale.” Miami East picked up a couple of early victories against Tippecanoe — with Matt Amheiser (113) scoring a 10-8 decision and Allen Seagraves (120) picking up a pin to make the score 15-0, but the only other victory the Vikings got was a pin by Aaron Hubbard (170) — and they gave away five forfeits to one by the Devils. “When you’re in the hole 24-30 points from the start, it’s tough,” Miami East coach Jason Sroufe said. “It was good to get Amheiser a win at 113, though. All of the kids bumped up a weight so we could get him in, and I’ve got to commend the guys on that.” Gabe Callicoat (126) and Jarrod Wasson (132) got Tippecanoe rolling with pins to cut the lead to 15-12, and after three straight forfeits it was 3015 Devils. Austin Robbins (160) kept things rolling with a 16-1 tech. fall, and Shane Dodd (182) scored a pin, as well. Against Covington, though, the Devils had a tough time. Covington’s Matt Carder (120) and Callicoat traded pins early, and Wasson held on for a 5-4 decision to give the Devils a 15-6 lead. But Deeter —


■ CONTINUED FROM 14 match was key,” Curnes said. “Everything else went pretty much as expected, so we knew it’d come down to that one. “It’s hard to fight back after you get behind 5-0 early. He and that kid are pretty equal right now, so that was the deciding factor.” Covington went on to defeat Tippecanoe 48-21 to complete the sweep. The Red Devils knocked off the host Miami East Vikings 53-21 to start the night, and the Trojans went on to edge the Vikings 39-33 in the finale. “It was a little hairy to start the night,” Covington coach Tom Barbee said. “We try to focus on team and everyone doing their part. It puts pressure on everyone to go out there, get pins and not give up points. “Mistakes happen, though. Troy came out to wrestle, and they took it right to us.” Tyler Sparks (120), Mason Perkins (126) and Ryan Simon (132) scored three straight pins, and with a forfeit at 113 taken into consideration, Troy led 24-0 before the Buccs realized what was happening. But Kyler Deeter (138) kicked off a run of four straight pins to tie the score at 24 along with Jake Sowers (145), Cole Smith (152) and Ben Miller (160), and a forfeit at 170 gave the Buccs a six-point lead. “I kind of talked to them a bit (after going down 24-0),” Barbee said. “I told them that we had to get focused or we were going to lose the meet. They didn’t want to lose and stepped it up.” Olson’s win made it 3324 Covington, back-andforth forfeits kept the lead at nine and Ryne Rich (285), fresh off his championship at the Troy Invitational, scored a pin in his only action of the night to make the final 3936. “I didn’t know if he’d get any matches tonight,” Curnes said of Rich. “It was good to get him some
