Group to take homeless census Results will influence HUD funding BY JOHN BADEN For the Miami Valley Sunday News In a time when poverty in Ohio is on the rise, one organization is doing all it can to raise awareness for the homeless and identify its population in the area. In 1996, the Family Abuse

MIAMI COUNTY Shelter of Miami County established the Miami County Continuum of Care, a group made up of concerned residents, county officials, service providers and former homeless people. President Barbara Holman, who is the exec-

utive director of FASMC, describes this diverse group as “people coming together to address the needs” of those who are and have been homeless. “Our focus a long time ago when we kind of expanded our continuum of care was to not only work with current incidents of homelessness, but to think of ways

we can come up with to prevent it in the future and strengthen our community,” Holman said. As a result, this group does point-in-time counts, which are censuses done every two years to inform others on the numbers and characteristics of people without shelter on that current day. According to a report released in December 2012 by the U.S.

Amanda Scalice finishes a style with Lindsay Taylor Wednesday at Giacomo’s in Troy. Both are Giacomo’s hair stylists and salon managers and will be a part of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 2013.

‘A feather in our cap’ Sisters to style hair during Fashion Week BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer Sisters Lindsay Taylor and Amanda Scalice of the Troy salon Giacomo’s discovered they were selected last week for the opportunity of a lifetime — to style hair for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City. The salon, owned by their parents Cristy and Giacomo Scalice, was named one of the top 20 Philip Pelusi salons across the country. As the top two stylists at Giacomo’s, they will represent the salon and style models’ hair backstage for the line Venexiana, designed by Kati Stern. “It’s such an honor for my sister and me to be a part of fashion week. Two young women from Troy, Ohio — it’s kind of a feather in our cap,” Taylor said.

TROY Giacomo’s has sold Pelusi products — called P2 — for seven years, but began selling the products exclusively a year ago. The salon also sells the Tela line of Pelusi, which is the industry’s first USDA-certified organic line of hair care products. The sisters will leave on their trip Thursday, Feb. 7. To defer costs on such short notice, Giacomo’s will auction off four items: a $100 gift card, one-hour couple’s massage, blow dry/flat iron session and a “berries and bliss” spa package. The winners will be chosen Feb. 6. Scalice, 28, said she’s excited to see how a fashion show comes to life — “being backstage, seeing where the action is behind the scenes, then seeing it onstage with all the cameras flashing.”

Standoff ends with 23 hostages dead ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) — In a bloody finale, Algerian special forces stormed a natural gas complex in the Sahara desert on Saturday to end a standoff with Islamist extremists that left at least 23 hostages dead and killed all 32 militants involved, the Algerian government said. With few details emerg1 ing from the remote site in

eastern Algeria, it was unclear whether anyone was rescued in the final operation, but the number of hostages killed on Saturday seven was how many the militants had said that morning they still had. The government described the toll as provisional and some foreigners remained unaccounted for. The siege at Ain Amenas transfixed the

world after radical Islamists linked to alQaida stormed the complex, which contained hundreds of plant workers from all over the world, then held them hostage surrounded by the Algerian military and its attack helicopters for four tense days that were punctuated with gun battles and dramatic tales of escape. Algeria’s response to the

crisis was typical of its history in confronting terrorists, favoring military action over negotiation, which caused an international outcry from countries worried about their citizens. Algerian military forces twice assaulted the two areas where the hostages were being held with minimal apparent

Her sister also has envisioned the fashion frenzy that will ensue, picturing “being thrown in the trenches with all the stylists, with creativity oozing from your fingertips.” While Friday and Saturday will be devoted to Fashion Week, the ladies will have the chance to explore the Big Apple before they leave on either Sunday or Monday. Neither has ever been to New York City. Taylor would like to check out the 9/11 Memorial and Rockefeller Center, while Scalice simply hopes to bask in the bright lights. “I want to feel like a New Yorker for a few days — whatever that entails,” she said with a smile. Giacomo’s, 221 S. Market St., offers hair and skin care, waxing, manicures, pedicures and massage therapy, among other services. For more information, visit

Posting threatening materials online on a Saturday night could mean big problems in the principal’s office at school on Monday morning. Miami County school superintendents remind parents and their students that what is posted on social networking sites may be subject to investigation by both school officials and possibly law enforcement, if threats are made online. The Miami County Sheriff’s Office investigated two separate incidents at two local schools during Christmas break where a student posted messages that were brought to the attention of school officials. Actions by school officials and school resource officers are due to recent changes to the “Jessica Logan Act,” or House Bill 116, which was signed into law by Ohio Gov. John Kasich in February 2012. In the first incident, on Dec. 28, Newton Local School officials said a student made a threat on Facebook advising “he was going to kill people.” The student was scheduled to go on a school trip during the holiday break. A Miami County Sheriff ’s Office deputy spoke with the student at his residence despite the student removing the post from Facebook within minutes of posting it. The student told officers he was upset and mad, but would not make any more threats and would have not harmed anyone. Newton Local School Superintendent Pat McBride said the student was not allowed to go on the trip and hoped it would be a lesson for other students that online messages made at home are taken very seriously at school. “This was a case of an emotional outburst,” McBride said Friday. “Kids don’t understand that people take things like this

• Continued from A1 seriously; they don’t think anyone is looking.” McBride said students often are “so open online” but fail to remember that posting information online is “wide open for everyone to see.” “When you put it online, it’s there to stay,” McBride said. McBride said officials found the student was upset over a recent breakup and in this instance, they felt the student not being allowed to go on the out-ofstate trip was a fit punishment. “We take the time to question things,” he said. “Parents need to know what their son or daughter is doing online.” In the second incident, a Miami East Junior High student may face expulsion and is currently serving a 10-day suspension from school due to her threatening another student on Facebook. The incident was investigated by sheriff ’s officials on Jan. 4. According to Miami County Sheriff ’s reports, Miami East Junior High School Principal Allen Mack contacted officials after he was given a copy of a Facebook post in which the female student threatened to kill other students. According to school officials, the post was made during Christmas break and no disruption was caused at the school. According to the report, a specific student was named in the threat and statements were presented to the Juvenile Court Prosecutor Rob Long. Miami East Local Schools Superintendent Dr.

HOUSE BILL 116 Information provided by National Public Radio’s State Impact: House Bill 116 requires school districts to establish cyber-bullying policies and to annually teach teachers and inform parents about their overall bullying policies. It also requires them to teach students about the policies if state or federal funding is provided for that purpose. It was signed into law by Gov. John Kasich on Feb. 2, 2012. The bill was named in memory of Jessica Logan, a Cincinnati teenager who committed suicide after being harassed over nude photos she sent to a former boyfriend. State law already required school districts to have anti-bullying policies. Existing law defined bullying as “any intentional written, verbal, or physical act that a student has exhibited toward another particular student more than once and the behavior both causes mental or physical harm to the other student and is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, threatening, or abusive educational environment for the other student.” Violence within a dating relationship is also considered bullying. HB 116 requires school districts to include bullying committed using a cell phone, computer and/or other electronic communication device in their anti-bullying policies.

Todd Rappold said the district’s policy follows the state policy on bullying. “The policies have changed numerous times over the years,” Rappold said last week. “That policy now includes online posts after school hours to protect the safety of the students, staff and school as a whole.” Rappold said many students “don’t see past Friday night.” “They don’t grasp the concept that making these comments on social media means it’s out there permanently,” Rappold said. Rappold said many students fail to acknowledge that their actions online may have severe consequences at school. Rappold said the school district has hosted numerous conversations and meetings with parents on the subject of online posts and its role in school safety. “It’s a whole new world,” Rappold said. “We do what needs to be done to ensure that kids are safe.” Rappold said lessons learned about the conse-

quences of online media posts can be carried on well after graduation. “What you are posting on social media could affect things like getting a job in the future,” Rappold said. “Once it’s out in the world, it’s there to stay.” Rappold said while the incident at the junior high was the district’s first, every matter will be investigated and handled quickly and individually. “If it’s threatening, we will get the sheriff’s department involved to get a thorough investigation,” Rappold said. “Posting something on a Saturday could bite them in the future.” Troy City Schools Eric Superintendent Herman echoed his fellow district leaders. “You can’t afford not to take everything serious,” Herman said. “If someone says a threat at any time and if we see anything or hear anything — we follow up on it.” Herman said as a parent himself, it is difficult to stay on top of the mass commu-

nication teens and young children use with cell phones and social networking sites. “We’ve got to look at everything with all this communication done at lightning speed,” Herman said. “As a parent, you’ve got to keep track of it as much as you can.” Herman said in the day and age where a picture or video can be sent to hundreds of people in a matter of minutes, parents need to talk to children about their choices, both at school and at home, as well as in real life and online. “As a parent I tried my hardest to keep track of communication — it’s hard to do,” Herman said. “It’s so easy to type out a text message in two seconds and then it’s sent to 18 people. Kids need to realize it’s out there forever.” For the complete policy regarding social media and actions school districts must take, visit http:// w w w. l e g i s l a t u r e. s t a t e. HB_116.

vention with efficiency and professionalism to neutralize the terrorist groups that were first trying to flee with the hostages and then blow up the gas facilities,” Algeria’s Interior Ministry said in a state-

ment about the standoff. Immediately after the assault, French President Francois Hollande gave his backing to Algeria’s tough tactics, saying they were “the most adapted response to the crisis.”

“There could be no negotiations” with terrorists, the French media quoted him as saying in the central French city of Tulle. Hollande said the hostages were “shamefully murdered” by their captors,

and he linked the event to France’s military operation against al-Qaida-backed rebels in neighboring Mali. “If there was any need to justify our action against terrorism, we would have here, again, an additional

argument,” he said. President Barack Obama said in a statement Saturday that the U.S. stood ready to provide whatever assistance was needed in the wake of the attack.

New You NEW YEAR Walk To A Better You Your time on the couch in front of the TV has come to an end, and you're ready to get fit. How you go about this journey is up to you.You could take a martial arts class, you could take up running, you could swim at the local pool, you could enroll in a dance class or you could simply walk. That's right. Walking half an hour on most days of the week will help you get into shape and stay healthy, and unlike some other disciplines, walking is easy and requires little in the way of equipment. Interested in walking your way to a better you? Read on! Before you get started, you need to take an assessment of your health. Do you have some health issues? If so, you should make an appointment with your physician to ensure you are healthy enough to start a fitness walking program. The same goes if you are over the age of 65. Next, you need to gather the right equipment. Walking doesn't require much, just some comfortable clothes and a good pair of walking shoes. You will want shoes in good condition that fit well. You may also want to purchase a water bottle to carry with you on longer stretches. This will ensure you don't get dehydrated. You also need to consider where you will be walking. Clearly you will want somewhere safe, such as a nearby park, gym or track. You can also walk in your neighborhood or on a local trail. If possible, try to find a buddy. There is safety in numbers, and having someone to walk with will keep you motivated. When you are ready to begin, go slowly. Always take the time to warm up and cool down to prevent injury. Once you have warmed up with some stretches, go for a brisk 10-minute walk. Do this every day for a week, and then tack on another five minutes onto your walks the next week. Continue to do this until you have built up enough strength and stamina to go the distance desired. While you are walking, pay attention to your stature. Are you standing up straight? Are your shoulders relaxed and your head held high? Are your abdominal muscles tight? When done right, walking can improve posture and slim the waistline. As you build your strength and stamina, you can pick up the pace and go for longer stretches at a time. If you are looking to shed some pounds, you will want to walk briskly for 45 to 60 minutes five days a week. Of course, keeping up the program could turn out to be the hardest part. Look to your walking buddy for support and just think of how good you'll look and feel within a few months!

Relief For The Stressed

Of the approximate 44 million caregivers in the United States, 61% are women. Most are middleaged with jobs outside of the home. They do whatever it takes to provide for their family and care for their loved ones, whether coming into the office early, staying late or reducing their hours altogether. Many wind up burning the candle at both ends, leaving them exhausted and prone to caregiver stress. There's no doubt about it. Caring for a sick or disabled person can be draining, emotionally, physically and financially. Add to that the responsibility of caring for a family, and it's easy to see why many women suffer from caregiver stress. The problem can vary in intensity, and if left untreated, it can lead to a host of conditions, some short- and some long-term. Anger, frustration, exhaustion, guilt and loneliness are usually the first signs of caregiver stress, Unfortunately, most woman are too busy to recognize them, much less deal with them. Many begin to suffer from anxiety and depression and become increasingly ill. They catch bugs easily and take longer to recover. Many also put on weight. All of this can lead to the development of more serious, life-long conditions, like arthritis, cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Recognizing the presence of caregiver stress is

the first step in dealing with it. Seeking help is the second. Many communities offer a wide range of resources for caregivers, from transportation and meal delivery services to home health care and counseling services to support groups and in-home volunteer services. Most are available at a low cost. Gathering support from family members can also be beneficial, especially with the financial aspects. Family members may be able to share the financial burdens, or at the very least, share the responsibilities. While one person might be the main hands-on caregiver, another might arrange for appointments and another for food and clothes. Classes are available to assist families in sharing the duties of caregiving, reprioritizing tasks and setting more manageable goals. There is no shame in asking for help, whether in the form of assistive devices or respite services. Women, and anyone for that matter, suffering from caregiver stress should check with their state's agency on aging and take advantage of all the resources available. More importantly, they should take care of themselves, taking the time to exercise and eat right and see their doctor regularly. Ill, stressed caregivers cannot provide the care needed for their loved one or their family.

Question: Do you trust the state government? Watch for final poll results in next Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News.

Last week’s question: Do you trust the federal government? Results: Yes: 13% No: 87%

Watch for a new poll question in next 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 Seattle Times on the FTC’s Google investigation: Anyone feeling déjà vu over the Federal Trade Commission’s Google investigation? A company with a dominant technology platform, in this case, search, was accused of exploiting its position to squash competitors. In the 1990s, Microsoft was investigated for using its monopoly with Windows to expand its Web browser business. The ensuing trial and consent decree forced the company to change its ways. Recently, the FTC announced a toothless settlement with Google after investigating allegations of anti-competitive practices in search and patents. Competitors said Google promoted advertisers’ search results over the organic results in the middle of the page, which users expect to display the most commonly clicked websites. Google has a clear competitive advantage with 67 percent of search traffic, which also means it can set the rules for online advertisers. The FTC for the most part ignored the complaints of search bias in its settlement. It failed to judge Google by the same standards in Microsoft’s antitrust case. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. The unequal application of antitrust law undermines the confidence of innovators and investors. Most important, consumers have been denied access to a fair marketplace for the most competitive businesses and services via Google’s search engine. … The U.S. Department of Justice should launch an investigation into Google, as it did with Microsoft in the 1990s. Antitrust law must be applied equally and fairly to protect the public. Arab News, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on Afghan-Taliban negotiations: Winter is not a good time to fight in Afghanistan. Each winter NATO forces have tried to kid themselves that the dieback in Taliban attacks represents the imminent collapse of the insurgency. However, with the melting of the snows each spring, the Taliban have proved them ever more wrong. Nevertheless, something important and new seems to be happening, as the Afghan conflict goes into semi-hibernation, for the worst of the winter weather. Despite the illness and imminent retirement of their chief, Hillary Clinton, State Department officials have been deeply involved, no doubt with their CIA opposite numbers, in little publicized talks in both Pakistan and Afghanistan. What they seem to be talking about is peace. Recently, eight senior Afghan Taliban members were released by Pakistan, with the full approval of the Afghan government and the United States and its NATO allies. Among the freed were two former ministers in the ousted Taliban government and, some have argued, a far more significant figure, in the shape of the former bodyguard of the elusive Taliban leader, Mullah Mohammed Omar. The line being put out by Washington, albeit unofficially, is that the Talibs have recognized that they cannot win the ground war and are therefore prepared to negotiate. This does not entirely compute. … The administration of president Hamid Karzai, who must under the constitution leave office when new elections are held in 2014, has in the view of some NATO diplomats, demonstrated itself to be rotten to the core… By many assessments, once the NATO firepower has gone, Taliban insurgents will be pushing at an open door, in their drive to seize Kabul and other major cities and return to power. That being the probable case, why should the Taliban be seeking to negotiate, to bargain the release of their leaders, in return for some assurances that are not yet clear? Could it really be that the Taliban, whatever the contrary views of their erstwhile Al-Qaeda allies, actually do see that Afghanistan has had enough of pain and misery, death and destruction initiated by the Russian invasion 34 years ago?

THEY SAID IT “When Ramona was diagnosed, we didn’t have the knowledge about autism in the public schools that we do now. Special education did not include the knowledge or technology that we have now. It did not address the social skills training or have the resources or agencies that we do now.” — Former West Milton resident Gary Studebaker, on his daughter’s battle with autism spectrum disorder. He has written a book about his daughter’s fight “He was just a topnotch person. He was very charitable and easy to work with. I was chairman of the renovation committee and he was very easy to work with. He was great with everybody. People loved him. He’ll be missed.” — St. Patrick Catholic Church parishoner Bob Sink, on the passing of the church’s former pastor, the Rev. Robert Wolfer

Violent games still a favorite scapegoat Troy It was only a matter of time. Not even a month after the Sandy Hook massacre — and just a couple of weeks after the National Rifle Association’s deluded attempt to paint everyone else as a scapegoat besides the one thing it supports — legislation has been introduced by the government to strike at its favorite innocent whipping boy. And while the bill, the Video Games Ratings Enforcement Act, actually isn’t as blatantly unconstitutional as past attempts to limit the sale of violent video games, it’s still off target and needs plenty of work. The bill would make the Entertainment Software Rating Board rating on every M (Mature) or AO (Adults Only) game legally binding, meaning that any retailer selling or renting those games to someone underage — under 18 for AO and 17 for M — would be open to punishment, a $5,000 fine. It would also require that the ESRB rate every single game on the market and display the label in a “clear and conspicuous” spot on the game’s case. All of this on the heels of President Barack Obama’s speech on Wednesday where he outlined his suggestions to curb gun violence, including him wanting the movie, TV and video game industries to “pro-

Josh Brown Sunday Columnist vide parents more decision-making tools.” Which is a hilarious and pointless suggestion considering that parents have more tools to decide on their children’s entertainment in those respects than they do to actually raise their kids in the first place. For years now, it’s been solely up to the parents to actually use them. “The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) shares Representative Matheson’s goal of ensuring parents maintain control over the entertainment enjoyed by their children,” the ESA said in a statement earlier this week, mentioning the bill’s author, representative Jim Matheson (R-Utah). “That is why we work with retailers and stakeholders to raise awareness about the proven (ESRB) system, the

parental controls available on every video game console, and the importance of parents monitoring what games their children play. “However, this type of legislation was already ruled unconstitutional and is a flawed approach. Empowering parents, not enacting unconstitutional legislation, is the best way to control the games children play.” The proper route to take certainly isn’t threatening retailers with fines — especially when they all already have policies in place not to sell ageinappropriate games to children, and have for years. Maybe what needs to happen now is punishing the parents themselves for not doing their job: paying attention and getting informed. Make every sale of an M-rated game come with a release form for the buyer to sign stating that the purchase is not intended for an underage child, nor will the adult play the game with children present. Failure to abide by the terms of the release results in the same fine that the retailer would have been forced to pay. Maybe that’ll wake the slackers up. Here’s the thing. Older, out-oftouch people still hold to the miscon-

ception that all video games are intended for children. They still think that only little kids play them. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. According to the ESA, the average gamer is 30 years old (I’m 36) and has been playing video games for 14 years of their life (28 here). And with adults buying and playing so many games, they naturally want content designed specifically for their maturity level. Children should absolutely not be playing most of our games. But mature games — and the people who play them — should not be punished just because children exist and their parents still refuse to pay attention to the vast amount of information at their disposal, so much so that they actually have to go out of their way to ignore it anymore. And as for the insinuation that violent video games, movies and TV somehow are responsible for these mass shootings? That joke hasn’t been funny for years. And it’s gotten even less funny after hearing it for the 1,000th time. But it was only a matter of time before someone was dumb enough to repeat it. TDN Sports Editor Josh Brown appears Sundays.

Troy senior Todda Norris pulls up for a jumper in the middle of a crowd Saturday afternoon against Piqua at the Trojan Activities Center. The Trojans completed the first half of Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division play this season at 5-0 with a 50-22 victory over the Indians.

Turning up the heat Troy pressure too much for Piqua BY ROB KISER Civitas Media Troy’s run-and-jump press took Piqua out of its offense the entire game Saturday afternoon at the Troy Activities Center. And the Trojans were able to cash in on Piqua turnovers in the second half in a 50-22 win as two-time defending division champion Troy completed the first half of Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division play with a perfect 5-0 mark and Piqua dropped to 2-3 in the conference. Troy’s defense was just as dominant in the first half — forcing 16 turnovers in the opening

TROY two quarters — but because of an ice-cold 1 for 15 shooting effort in the second quarter, the Trojans’ 16-6 first-quarter lead was only an 18-11 advantage at the half. “That was our plan going in (the full-court pressure),” Troy coach Nathan Kopp said. “We actually forced just as many turnovers in the first half (as in the second). But we were able to convert on them in the second half. One of the things I told the girls at halftime was we were working way too hard on defense to only be up 18-11. We just went

Mack broke up the Red Devils’ slow-down offense with a steal on the perimeter that she cashed in for a three-point play, then she capped off two more consecutive steals with a layup and another three-point play, scoring the first eight points of a 12-0 run to start the third quarter — and the Vikings were off to the races from there, running away with a 67-48 victory in the bitter inter-county rivalry Saturday at Pat Wampler Gymnasium.

Thomas doesn’t get shot to tie, Buckeyes fall EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Deshaun Thomas was stopped only by a teammate. Ohio State’s star didn’t get the ball with a chance to make an overtime-forcing 3pointer as No. 18 Michigan State beat the 11th-ranked Buckeyes 59-56 Saturday night. Thomas was upset when Shannon Scott passed up an opportunity to get him the ball and hit the side of the

backboard on an off-balance shot with just under 4 seconds left. “I was knocking down shots all night,” he said. Thomas, who had 28 points, was so good he made Tom Izzo want to do something the Spartans’ coach said he has “never” done. If Thomas got the ball in the closing seconds, Izzo wanted his team to foul him. Scott, though, didn’t give Thomas one more shot.

“I was relieved,” Izzo acknowledged. Keith Appling scored 15 points, including two free throws with 7.9 seconds left, and Adreian Payne added 14 as part of a relatively balanced offense against a oneman show. Thomas, who had his highest-scoring game in Big Ten play, was 10 of 20 overall, made 6 of 11 3-pointers and connected on his two free throws.

Ohio State coach Thad Matta called a timeout after Appling’s lead-padding free throws and anticipated Michigan State fouling to prevent a 3-point attempt. When the hack didn’t come, Scott seemed to be surprised and hurried a shot. “Michigan State knew we were going to go to (Thomas),” Matta said. “We would’ve liked to have got it to him there.”

Scott probably wished he had passed the ball, too, as hid his face under his jersey. “You could see that he put his head down,” Thomas said. The Spartans (16-3, 5-1 Big Ten) are on their way up in the conference standings, winning five straight conference games. Michigan State’s Branden Dawson scored nine points and grabbed 10 rebounds and Gary Harris and Derrick

Nix each added eight points. Ohio State (13-4, 3-2) was playing for the first time since handing Michigan its only loss last Sunday. The Buckeyes’ secondleading scorer against the Spartans was Lenzelle Smith Jr., who had six points on 2-of-7 shooting. Aaron Craft, who was 2 of 8 from the field, was one of three Buckeyes with five points.

Trojans bounce back

■ CONTINUED FROM A7 cold from outside.” Piqua coach Rory Hoke was not surprised by Troy’s strategy — just disappointed with his team’s lack of execution. “It was disheartening that we prepared for their pressure and run and jump, yet we still just stood and watched our teammate get trapped,” Hoke said. “For the most part, we played very scared.” And while Troy scored just two points in the second quarter, Piqua could only manage five and still trailed by seven at the break. “We were fortunate to be down seven at halftime,” Hoke said. “We had a chance to cut it to five, and then give up three straight offensive rebounds, and it just unraveled from there.” The Trojans wasted no time putting the game out of reach in the third quarter, matching their firsthalf output with 18 points to open a 36-17 lead. The Trojans were leading 23-15 when Todda Norris hit four straight free throws and Morgan Taylor buried a 3 — blowing the lead up to 30-15 in less than 60 seconds — with 3:30 remaining in the quarter. “It seemed like it went from seven or eight to 15 pretty quickly,” Kopp said. “That can happen when you are shooting layups (off turnovers).” Piqua could never make any run in the second half, matching their first-half total of 11 points. “We folded under their pressure,” Hoke said. ” I just felt like from the start, we were not into it mentally. Then everyone became frustrated, and we lost our composure.” Mackenzie Schulz led Troy with 15 points, including nine in the second half, while Todda Norris had a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Kristen Wood had 10 points, while Courtney Mazzulla grabbed six rebounds. “Mackenzie (Schulz) had a nice game,” Kopp said. “Todda (Norris) had some big baskets. Kristen (Wood) was real solid and Courtney (Mazzula) did a great job on their leading

The Troy Trojans bounced back from a lateFriday-night 4-2 loss to Worthington Kilbourne at Chiller North, bombarding Sylvania Southview constantly and scoring the first four goals in a 51 victory Saturday. Troy outshot Sylvania Southview 38-9 in the game — and didn’t allow a shot on goal in the third period. “We’ve been in a slump recently, not getting enough shots on net,” coach Larrell Troy Walters said. “Today, we broke through that a little

bit. We changed around some of our defensive lines, and it paid off.” Tyler Hess got things going on assists from Will Schober and Alex Smith, then Doug Eardly made it 2-0 after one with an assist from Troy Moore. Eli Walters then scored a pair of second-period goals with an assist from Clay Terrill on one and Eardly on the other, and Smith capped things off in the third with assists from Schober and Terrill.

Last season, Miami East wasn’t exactly a dualmatch team. The Vikings have turned things around this year. Miami East piled up six pins as a team Saturday at Brookville, overcoming a number of forfeits to pick up a 39-27 victory in preparation for the start of the OHSAA State Dual Tournament this week. With the win, the Vikings are now 10-7 in duals this season — after going 1-20 last year. “To go from one win to double-digit wins, that’s great,” Miami East coach Jason Sroufe said. “We had six pins and a decision

today, and that was what we needed. We had a couple of guys out, gave up some forfeits and had to move some other guys around to fill spots, but that’s what you have to do in a dual.” Matthew Amheiser (120), Allen Seagraves (126), Austin Rush (138), Mack Rose (152), Danny O’Malley (170) and Daniel Everett (195) all scored pins, while Stephen Morrow (132) won a 13-9 decision. Miami East opens up the State Dual Tournament at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Versailles High School against a formidable opponent — Troy Christian.

Vikings win 2nd straight, Buccs rebound with win Staff Reports


CASSTOWN — Miami East may have struggled to shoot the ball in the second quarter. But the Vikings have the muscle on defense to turn those table, too. After only scoring three in the second and falling behind visiting Twin Valley South at halftime, the Vikings (9-4, 52 Cross County Conference) held the Panthers to only four in the third to retake control and held on for a 4635 victory Saturday night. “We really talked about getting the ball inside better in the third,” Miami East coach Allen Mack said. “We hadn’t shot the ball well in the first half and didn’t make a field goal in the second quarter, but in the third we were able to establish a physical presence in the block.” A.J. Hickman and Garrett Mitchell had six points apiece in the Vikings’ 14-4 third quarter run, and Luke

House — who led the Vikings with 15 points, four rebounds and three steals, added eight points in the fourth. Nick Beard finished with 12 points, three rebounds and three steals, Hickman had 10 points, seven rebounds and five assists and Mitchell had nine points and eight rebounds. Miami East is back on the road Friday at Mississinawa Valley. Covington 58, Houston 50 HOUSTON — The Covington Buccaneers rebounded from Friday’s loss to state-ranked Tri-Village — although Saturday’s game had its ups and downs, too. In the end, the Buccs (7-6) outscored Houston 21-8 in the fourth quarter, coming back from a five-point deficit after three to win 58-50 on the road Saturday night. “We come out in the fourth and I think we held

them to one field goal,” Covington coach Matt Pond said. “It was a great team effort. We go back-to-back nights against two quality teams and split the weekend. For our kids to bounce back the way they did after that loss last night, I think that says a lot about us.” Ryan Craft scored a game-high 22 points for Covington, which led 15-8 after the first quarter but fell behind 27-24 at the break and trailed 42-37 after the third. Cole Owens added 14 points and Dylan Owens and Troy Cron each scored eight. Covington travels to Newton Friday night. • Girls Troy Christian 42, Miami Valley 40 DAYTON — Miami Valley put up a fight Saturday, but in the end the Troy Christian Eagles (13-3, 6-1 Metro Buckeye Conference) were able to close out a 42-40 victory, their fourth straight. Troy Christian led 34-25

going into the fourth quarter, but Miami Valley (9-8, 3-4) outscored the Eagles 15-8 in the final eight minutes — but it still wasn’t enough. “We played a stubborn Miami Valley team today on the road,” Troy Christian coach Dick Steineman said. “We did a nice job of keeping our composure to close out the game. “We only had five turnovers in the game and really took care of the ball.” Sarah Campbell had 14 points and six rebounds to lead the Eagles, Amanda Benjamin added nine points and Amanda Slone had seven points and six steals. Troy Christian faces Dayton Christian Thursday. Waynesville 40, Milton-Union 37 WEST MILTON — Milton-Union is making strides. And even though those strides haven’t shown up in the win column, coach Richard Cline likes the progress his team is making.

On Dec. 15, the Bulldogs were beaten 67-39 by Southwestern Buckeye League Buckeye Division rival Waynesville. But on Saturday, it was a different story as Milton-Union went wire-to-wire with Waynesville before falling 40-37. “The kids are getting better, and that’s what it’s all about,” Cline said. Milton’s Kaylee Swartztrauber was given the task of defending Ali Caplinger in the box-andone. Caplinger, who averages 22 points and close to 10 free throw attempts a game, was held to 11 points on the night as the Bulldogs matched her up against Swartztrauber and Haley Martens, who ended the game with 12 points and four rebounds. The main thing that cost Milton-Union was turnovers. The Spartans had a 32-17 turnover advantage for the game, leading to 20 extra shot attempts. “It was a tough battle the

whole way. Both teams played hard,” Cline said. “We get beat 32-17 on turnovers, which leads to 20 more field goal attempts — and we still lose the game by only three. “We actually outrebounded them, which is a big focus for us.” Brooke Falb had a doubledouble with 14 points and 12 rebounds. She also added four assists in the loss. The Bulldogs (2-13, 1-8 Southwestern Buckeye League Buckeye Division) host Franklin Monroe on Monday. Marion Local 67, Covington 40 MARIA STEIN — A 26-9 hole after the first quarter proved to be too much for the Covington Buccaneers to overcome Saturday in a 6740 loss at Marion Local (9-6). Cassidy Cain led the Buccs (10-7) with 15 points and Jackie Siefring and Brittanie Flora each added eight. Covington travels to TriCounty North Thursday.

Tippecanoe’s Carly Clodfelter tries to steal the ball from Miami East’s Trina Current Saturday.


Tippecanoe’s Ben Stucke battles with a Versailles player for a rebound Saturday night.

Devils ■ CONTINUED FROM A7 win and avoid a second loss in as many nights. The loss snaps a fourgame winning streak for Tippecanoe (11-3) “I told them after the game that I thought this weekend, from a defensive standpoint, we took steps forward,” Tippecanoe coach Marcus Bixler said. “We defended really, really well (Friday) night. The first half tonight we were just really, really good defensively — as good as we’ve been. I thought our attention to detail on the defensive end was great. It put us in position coming into the third quarter to win that game.” Tippecanoe led by as many as eight in the early stages of the third quarter, but Versailles ended the quarter on a 17-4 run to claim a 31-26 lead going into final period. Then in the fourth, Ahrens scored six straight to put the Tigers up 40-31. Tipp never got within striking distance after that point. All told, though, Ahrens had to work for nearly everything he got. He went 3 for 11 from the field on the night, with his only buckets coming on a dunk in transition in the first quarter, a layup in the third quarter and an offensive rebound and stickback in the fourth. He did, however, go 8 for 10 at the foul line — including 4 for 4 in the final quarter — and finish the game with 14 points, which is well below his season average. “We got him frustrated,” Bixler said. “I thought in the first half we got them out of a lot of things they were trying to do. Cam did a great job of getting him frustrated. We shoved the offense out with the ball in his hands. You can’t do it with one guy. Everybody else was there to help. We knew it was going to take five guys to do it.” The Tipp defense had Versailles flustered most of the night. On their first three possessions, the Tigers had two turnovers and a charge, prompting head coach Scott McEldowney to take a timeout two minutes in. Finally, Nick Campbell’s 3-pointer broke three minutes of scoreless basketball to open the game.

Following that, Tippecanoe’s Nick Fischer and Cameron Johnson hit back-to-back triples to give the Devils a 6-3 lead. That lead vanished by the end as the Ahrens dunk gave the Tigers a 7-6 advantage by the end. The second quarter had six lead changes in total. Tipp was able to take a three-point cushion into the locker room thanks to a nice pass and bucket from Fischer to Michael Donahey just before time expired. Versailles totaled nine turnovers in the first half, while Ahrens was 1 for 5 from the field with an airball and a shot that hit the backboard without drawing iron. Fischer scored five straight points to open play in the third, giving the Red Devils a 22-14 lead. From that moment on, though, Versailles took over. “I thought two or three minutes into that third quarter, they just physically imposed their will,” Bixler said. “They put their heads down and started getting to the rim. We did a great job in the first half of protecting eight feet away, and that was our motto all week. We have to rebound the basketball, we have to keep them away from the rim — and we didn’t do that in the third quarter.” Damien Richard was second for the Tigers in scoring with 13 and Nick Campbell added eight. Versailles, the No. 6-ranked team in Division III, improved to 10-2. Fischer led Tippecanoe with 12 points, while Sean Ford added seven. The Red Devils play at Indian Lake on Tuesday.

■ CONTINUED FROM A7 overtime in last year’s 6965 Viking win over the Red Devils — decided to crank the tempo up in the third. With Tippecanoe content to pass the ball back and forth at the top of the key, Mack stepped in between, finished, drew a foul and converted the free throw. It was the beginning of the end for the Devils (9-8). “That steal sparked us,” Miami East coach Preston Elifritz said. “Angie played a phenomenal second half, and she got us going up and down the floor. And when the girls get up and running, it’s a fun brand of basketball to watch.” Tippecanoe turned the ball over on its first three possessions of the second half, and Mack finished all three off. On the third layup, two Tippecanoe defenders tried to sandwich her as she went by to slow her down, but she broke through at breakneck speed, got the foul and somehow was able to the shot to go, as well. Mack then dished out assists to Abby Cash on back-to-back possessions, and an Ashley Current putback made the score 38-25 in practically the blink of an eye. “Against a team like that, every mistake you make is magnified,” Tippecanoe coach Aaron Jackson said. “And we made some mistakes. Our plan was to press them because they’re better in the half-court than we are, but when they handled our pressure … we just don’t have much of an answer for 6-foot, 6-1. “Once we got down by 10, we had to start gambling more. And they made us pay. They’ve got some athleticism with that size.” Mack finished with a game-high 17 points — 13 of those coming in the second half. Cash added 14 points, six rebounds and four assists, with 10 of those points coming in the second half, and Madison Linn added six second-half assists as the Vikings outscored the Devils 41-23 after the break — 18-4 in the third quarter alone. “With the gameplan they had of slowing us down offensively … it worked. We only had 24 possessions in the first half as opposed to 35 or 40 like we usually do,” Elifritz said. “(Assistant) coach (Kelly) Cash said at halftime that we needed to limit them to one shot, get the rebound and transition — and that’s what we did.”


Miami East’s Leah Dunivan pulls up for a jumper Saturday against Tippecanoe. went on its 12-0 run in the third, the Devils never got within single digits again. “I told Erica and Halee that today was going to come down to you two playing well — and they did,” Jackson said. “But Miami East is one of the best teams in the state in Division III, and they just showed why.” The Vikings also held Tippecanoe’s freshman sensation Carly Clodfelter, who came in averaging 10.6 points per game, to six points — five of which came in the fourth quarter. Cassie Gingerich added six points, and McKensie Logan scored all four of the Devils’ third-quarter points on a pair of putbacks. The Miami East win marked its second straight over Tippecanoe after a three-game run by the Devils. Since the 2007-08 season, the series is now tied 3-3.

Miami East — 67 Leah Dunivan added 12 points, Ashley Current had 12 points, seven rebounds and four assists and Trina Current had eight points, eight rebounds and two assists. “We’ve been harping on Leah to be more aggressive on offense,” Elifritz said. “She’s such a presence on defense, but for us to be successful, she needs to take on that aggressive role offensively. Madison does a phenomenal job of being a distributor, her and Abby both do. When they’re not scoring, they’re getting the ball to someone else who does.

“Aggression just defined our second half today.” Tippecanoe’s veteran leaders, Erica Comer and Halee Printz, kept the Devils in the game early. Comer — who finished with a team-high 15 points, four rebounds and three assists — scored 11 of her points in the first half. And Comer’s inbounds pass to Printz, who finished with 13 points, five rebounds and three assists and beat the firsthalf buzzer with a jumper fading away from the Vikings’ bigs inside, cut the lead to one at the half.

Te’o provides answers, but more questions may be asked NEW YORK (AP) — Manti Te’o tried to put one of the strangest sports stories in memory behind him, insisting he was the target of an elaborate online hoax in which he fell for a fake woman created by pranksters, then admitting his own lies made the bizarre ordeal worse. Whether his off-camera interview with ESPN was enough to demonstrate that the Notre Dame star linebacker was a victim in the scheme instead of a participant is still an open question. The most important judges of the All-American and Heisman Trophy finalist may be pro football teams.

Te’o has finished his coursework at Notre Dame and is preparing for the NFL draft at an elite training facility in Florida, where the 2½-hour interview was conducted late Friday night. ESPN reporter Jeremy Schaap said that the 21year-old Te’o answered all his questions in a calm voice, and tried to clear up the mysteries and inconsistencies of the case. Among the highlights: — Te’o denied being in on the hoax. “No. Never,” he said. “I wasn’t faking it. I wasn’t part of this.” — Te’o provided a timeline and details of his relationship with Lennay Kekua,

his virtual sweetheart, who went through an array of medical calamities before “dying” of Leukemia in September, just hours after Te’o got real news of his grandmother’s death. — He acknowledged that he lied to his father about meeting Kekua in person, then exacerbated the situation after her supposed death when he “tailored” his comments to reporters to make it sound as if their relationship was more than just phone calls and electronic messages. “I even knew, that it was crazy that I was with somebody that I didn’t meet, and that alone — people find out

that this girl who died, I was so invested in, I didn’t meet her, as well,” Te’o said. “So I kind of tailored my stories to have people think that, yeah, he met her before she passed away, so that people wouldn’t think that I was some crazy dude.” In the same part of the conversation, Te’o said: “Out of this whole thing, that is my biggest regret. And that is the biggest, I think, that’s from my point of view, that is a mistake I made.” — He detailed the confusing phone conversation he had on Dec. 6, when the woman who was posing as Kekua contacted him and told him one last hard-tobelieve story about how she

had to fake her own death to evade drug dealers. Te’o said it left him piecing together what exactly was going on over the next few days, when he was bouncing from interview to interview while taking part in the Heisman Trophy ceremony in New York on Dec. 8 and another awards dinner in Los Angeles the next night. He mentioned his girlfriend in interviews at least three times over that period. — Even after he went to his parents, coaches and Notre Dame officials with the story by Dec. 26, and the school provided an investigation that it says corroborated Te’o’s version by Jan. 4, the

player told ESPN that it was not until Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, a 22-year-old acquaintance who lives in California, contacted him Wednesday and confessed to the prank, that he finally believed Kekua was not real. Schaap said that Te’o showed him direct messages from Twitter in which Tuiasosopo admitted to masterminding the hoax and apologized. Schaap remarked to Te’o earlier in the interview that he still talked about Lennay as if she existed. “Well, in my mind I still don’t have answers,” Te’o replied. “I’m still wondering what’s going on, what happened.”

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Sunday, Jan. 20, the 20th day of 2013. There are 345 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight: On Jan. 20, 1953, Dwight D. Eisenhower took the oath of office as president of the United States; Richard M. Nixon was sworn in as vice president. On this date: In 1887, the U.S. Senate approved an agreement to lease Pearl Harbor in Hawaii as a naval base. In 1942, Nazi officials held

the notorious Wannsee conference, during which they arrived at their “final solution” that called for exterminating Jews. In 1981, Iran released 52 Americans it had held hostage for 444 days, minutes after the presidency had passed from Jimmy Carter to Ronald Reagan. In 1986, the United States observed the first federal holiday in honor of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. Ten years ago: Secretary of

State Colin Powell, faced with stiff resistance and calls for caution, bluntly told the Security Council that the U.N. “must not shrink” from its responsibility to disarm Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. Five years ago: The Los Angeles Times announced its top editor, James O’Shea, had been fired after he rejected a management order to cut $4 million from the newsroom budget, 14 months after his predecessor was also ousted in a budget dispute.

Obama cites commitment to service WASHINGTON (AP) — On the brink of a second term, President Barack Obama invoked Martin Luther King Jr.’s commitment to service Saturday as inauguration-goers flocked to the capital city for a distinctly American celebration including an oath-taking as old as the republic, a splashy parade and partying enough to last four years. “I think we’re on the cusp of some really great things,” Vice President Joe Biden predicted for a country still recovering from a deep recession. Freshly built inaugural stands at the Capitol gleamed white in the sun, and hundreds of chairs for special guests were set out on the lawn that spills down toward the National Mall as the president and vice president began their inauguration weekend. Julius Cherry, in town from Sacramento, Calif., brought his family to the foot of the Capitol to see the area where their official tickets will let them watch the public ceremonies on Monday. “There were people who said they’d never vote for an African-American president,” the 58-year-old

lawyer said. “Now they’ve voted for him twice, and he won the popular vote and the electoral vote. That says something about his policies and his team.” “And the country,” added Cherry’s wife, Donna. Said Erika Goergen, from the Midwest and attending college locally: “It’s amazing to be here right now.” Officials estimated that

as many as 800,000 people will attend Monday’s public ceremonies. That’s more than live in the city, if far fewer than the 1.8 million who were at Obama’s first inauguration in 2009. The president made only a glancing reference to race as he spoke at an elementary school not far from the White House after he and first lady Michelle Obama stained a bookcase as part

of a national service event organized by the inaugural committee. “We think about not so much the inauguration, but we think about this is Dr. King’s birthday we’re going to be celebrating this weekend,” the president said. “He said everybody wants to be first, everybody wants to be a drum major. But if you’re going to be a drum major, be a drum

major for service, be a drum major for justice, be a drum major for looking out for other people,” Obama said of the civil rights leader whose birthday is celebrated as a national holiday on Monday. Because the date for inauguration set in the Constitution, Jan. 20, falls on a Sunday this year, Obama and Biden were to be sworn in for second terms in separate, private ceremonies on Sunday. The public ceremonies are set for Monday, when Obama will take the oath of office at noon, then deliver an inaugural address before a large crowd and a national television audience in the millions. The traditional lunch with lawmakers in the Capitol follows, and the inaugural parade down Pennsylvania Avenue toward the White House. There, a reviewing stand was adorned with the presidential seal and equipped with seats enough for Obama and other dignitaries to watch in relative comfort as military units, marching bands, floats and thousands of participants go past. A pair of inauguration balls will cap the day, including one with a guest

HUD as part of state and local grant applications. On its website, HUD notes that while the data reported to HUD does not directly determine the level of a community’s grant funding, these estimates, as well as full-year counts, are crucial in understanding the scope of homelessness and measuring progress in reducing it. With this in mind, Holman said that the group’s latest count of the homeless, happening Jan. 22, will be more significant than ever before because the final numbers will have a strong influence on how

much housing funding the county will be able to receive from HUD, which reports the data to Congress. Funding is not only based on the preparation of applications, statistics and record keeping, but it also depends on the county’s success rate at getting families back on their feet. “If we say we’re going to help 24 families and we help 30, but 26 of them were failures, meaning they were homeless again, that’s not really a good outcome even though we reached our number,” FASMC’s fiscal manager

Fawnda Cress said. Statistics show the count has produced results. From Sept. 1, 2009, to Feb. 20, 2012, Continuum of Care assisted 249 households and provided $77,930 in homeless prevention and $66,569 in re-housing, according to Holman. Both Holman and secretary Karen Dickey, who also is the executive director of the Mental Health Coalition, believe this census will make more and more people aware of this problem and direct the group toward eliminating the size of the homeless population in Miami

County. The forms ask for participants’ gender, age, subpopulation (individual, family, veteran, mentally ill, substance abuse, HIV/AIDS, domestic violence, disability), race, description of their household, ethnicity and location where the person is living. It asks how long the person has been homeless and if they have received any help in the past, such as food stamps, food bank, emergency shelter, prescription assistance, counseling, etc. “We want to have data, and we want to know what the correct trends are,”


President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama, accompanied by Sheri Fisher, a City Year employee, and Jeff Franco, executive director of City Year, stain a bookshelf at Burrville Elementary School in Washington, Saturday, as the the first family participated in a community service project for the National Day of Service, part of the 57th Presidential Inauguration.

list that runs to 40,000 names. A select few those who donated as much as $1 million to defray inauguration expenses received special access to public as well as invitation-only receptions and parties. The second term begins in circumstances different in many ways from the first, but familiar in others. The economy, then in the grip of a fierce and deepening recession, is now recovering slowly as unemployment recedes and stocks flirt with fiveyear highs. The health care legislation that Obama urged Congress to enact in his first inaugural address is the law of the land, courtesy of a split ruling by the Supreme Court. Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden is dead at the hands of U.S. special operations forces. But the organization he inspired is far from moribund, as demonstrated by the just-ended kidnapping episode Saturday at an Algerian natural gas complex that, according to the Algerian government, left at least 23 hostages dead. The U.S. on Friday acknowledged one American death.

Holman said. “We want to know what the characteristics of our people are.” Two groups the Continuum of Care will be concerned about this year are those in the 18-24 age group who have grown up in a poor family, and military veterans who have limited housing options. With three data collection forms handy to count the sheltered homeless, unsheltered homeless and those at-risk of being homeless, Dickey is confident of this year’s count. “We’re going to get a really good count this year,” Dickey said.

Homeless • Continued from A1 Department of Housing and Urban Development, Ohio ranked fourth in population increases for homelessness in 2012 with a total number of 13,997, up 7.3 percent from 2011. HUD first introduced the Continuum of Care concept, according to its official website. HUD details that the point-in-time count is a one-night count of each continuum’s sheltered and unsheltered homeless populations, more than 3,000 across the nation. These one-night “snapshot” counts are then reported to

A bad start when breakfast goes awry The food police are forever warning to think twice before choosing a fast-food breakfast. And I know of at least one Cooper’s hawk that would doubtless agree. I’d been poking around a certain sprawling patch of mixed woods and old fields since sunup — hoping to get in some exercise and visit a few back-in corners before the temperature rose enough to turn the few paths and game trails to mud. Muddy or not, it wasn’t easy going. The frosty leaves on the hillsides were slippery, and last season’s bumper crop of weeds — while thinned some by what bit of real winter we’ve so far experienced — were still snarled into such dense tangles as to prove nearly impenetrable. Not to mention I’m rather out of shape. When my back began hurting I found a comfortable seat on an old beech log situated atop a fairly open knoll. The spot offered a good view of the meadow below. I propped my walking stick nearby, cradled my camera in my lap, and settled back for a rest. The Cooper’s hawk simply appeared like a jet-propelled wraith 20 minutes later, zooming across the knoll’s flat top from my right. A few yards in front of me, the mixed flock of finches and sparrows I’d been watching work through the nearby brush simply exploded — as if a grenade had been dropped into their midst. At the cottage, I often see Cooper’s and sharp-shinned hawks use exactly the same sur-

Of course the real indignity came a minute or so later when the Cooper’s heard the soft click of the shutter release as I snapped his portrait.

Following the success of the first art exhibitor in September, another was hosted in December, which also featured a drum circle performance and improvisational jazz, taught by music instructor Paul Shuler. “That’s really going well right now,” Carter said. “We have a lot of good talent and a lot of really good kid and parental involvement.” Lincoln Center also offers

after-school tutoring for children from third grade through high school, with sign-ups being accepted for next year. The tutoring program is intended to help disadvantaged children not only succeed in school, but also start preparing for college early. “With the demographics I’m working with, statistics would show the majority maybe have trouble a) graduating high school or b) were raised by single mothers or extended family,

and college may be out of reach,” Carter said. “We keep very close track of their grades, and we really try to be involved with the kids.” Carter stressed that the center is a community-wide effort. “This is all made possible not only through my leadership, but also with the city of Troy, Troy United Way, the Troy Foundation, Hobart and the mayor (Michael Beamish),” Carter said.

“Not only are they investing in the community, but also providing hope for a group of people that without the center might struggle with childhood obesity or lack of education support. It’s really complex what we do.” Regular hours for Lincoln Community Center are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday and Friday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Run off seasonal affective disorder with exercise Shannon HylandTassava tries to run up to 25 miles a week, yearround. It’s harder in winter — icy sidewalks, snowy trails — but she’s determined. As a sufferer of seasonal mood problems, Hyland-Tassava runs for her emotional as well as physical health. “Starting a few years ago, I just really started feeling the classic things you always hear about when it came to seasonal mood changes: more tired, more lethargic, more irritable, less motivated to be active and go out and do,”

A couple of years ago, on the advice of her nursepractitioner, she started using a broad-spectrum light box and found it helpful. Running is her other important therapy. “I get such benefit, mentally, from running outdoors,” said HylandTassava, a psychologist and the author of “The Essential Stay-at-Home Mom Manual” (Booktrope Editions, 2011). HylandTassava works as a life coach (www.shannontasSHNS PHOTO BY MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE/GLEN STUBBE and often recMore than 15,000 runners and walkers prepare for the ommends outdoor activity start in the Lifetime Turkey Day 5K race in Minneapolis. for her clients. “I firmly believe in the power of said Hyland-Tassava, 41, the spring and summer, I exercise to affect mood of Northfield, Minn. “In typically felt fantastic.” positively and there’s very

strong research to support it.” Research suggests that exercise can be as effective as medication in combating depression — and comes with positive side effects instead of negative ones, said Beth Lewis, a University of Minnesota psychologist who studies exercise psychology. Even the mildly melancholic can share in this prescription-free mood booster. How much exercise? No need to train for a marathon: Even 150 minutes a week of moderateintensity activity (e.g., walking the dog) can provide “significant health benefits,” Lewis said. But studies show that only a small percentage of Americans do even that much. If you haven’t been active for a while, start small, Lewis suggested: “Getting out of the house for 10 minutes is something.” Since SAD (seasonal affective disorder) and winter blues are linked to loss of sunlight, logic suggests that midday outdoor exercise would be especially beneficial, although indoor exercise helps, too. Looking ahead to future winters, those who suffer from seasonal mood

problems are better off forming an exercise habit long before the symptoms kick in, Lewis said. “Prevention is always better than treatment.” Once depression has you in its clutches, it has a way of holding you fast to the couch. Dr. Scott Crow, a psychiatry professor at the University of Minnesota who has focused on mood disorders, said, “If you’re stuck enough, exercise is hard.” Years ago, Dawn Carlson of Minneapolis suffered from seasonal affective disorder so severe that a couple of times it didn’t even fade in the spring, lingering instead and turning into regular clinical depression. But a couple of decades ago, she started managing the wintertime bouts with a low dose of Prozac and a light box. In recent years, as she has become more physically active — weight-training, horseback-riding and “a smidge of cardio” — she finds she no longer needs the light box, though she keeps it on hand just in case. Does she actually enjoy winter now? “No,” Carlson said, after a pause — “but I don’t dread it.”

PERSONAL SERVICE-you deserve it!


College GPA declines with more support BY JUSTIN POPE Associated Press Parents who are footing more of the college tuition bill for their children give them a better chance of graduating. But a surprising new study finds they may not be doing them any favors in another area: generous financial support appears to lead to lower grades. The study, published in this month’s American Sociological Review, suggests students with some of their own “skin in the game” may work harder, and that students with parents picking up more of the tab are free to take on a more active social and extracurricular life. That may be fun and even worthwhile, but comes at a cost to GPA. “It allows for a lot of other activities in college that aren’t academic,” said author Laura Hamilton of the University of California, Merced. “Participation in the social scene is expensive money to hang out, drink.” But “the more you have all these extras, the more you can get dragged into the party scene, and that will drag down your GPA.” The study is based on figures from three large federal data sets that allow parental contributions and grades to be compared. Hamilton controlled for family socio-economic status, allowing a comparison of similar students whose families make different choices about how much of the cost of college to pick up. The effect on GPA is relatively small, Hamilton said. “The reason it was so shocking, however, is that all the research on parental

investments from preschool through (college) assumes you give something to your kids, particularly money, it leads to good things. This is one case where it not only doesn’t have the expected good effect, it has a small negative effect.” When parents pick up greater absolute amounts and shares of college costs, it affects GPA across the income distribution, though the effect is steepest at families earning over $90,000. At that level, and controlling for other factors, parents not giving their children any aid predicts a GPA of 3.15. At $16,000 in aid, GPA drops under 3.0. At $40,000, it hits 2.95. While rich families obviously find it easier to contribute, poorer families do as well, at greater sacrifice. But Hamilton says the damage may be greater for those families, because lower GPAs don’t hurt better-off students as much in the job market. Wealthier students can rely on connections and further help from parents. Students without those connections “have to have the 3.0 in order to pass the initial resume glance,” she said. Hamilton found grants, scholarships, work-study, student employment and veterans benefits don’t have similar negative effects on GPA, though loans do, along with direct parental aid. Hamilton said the findings don’t suggest parents should stop supporting students financially, especially considering there is a larger positive effect on graduation rates than the negative effect on GPA. But they should lay out standards and expectations.

Combat colds and flu with feel-good foods BY BLAIR ANTHONY ROBERTSON Sacramento Bee It’s that time of year. The nights are long, the mornings are chilly, and rain-soaked days test our resolve. Maybe you’re sniffling and sneezing, coughing and clammy and ready to be done with your alltoo-common cold. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could have a bowl of soup, a cup of tea or a box of chocolates and make it all go away? OK, so maybe the science is shaky on this one, but that nourishing bowl of chicken noodle soup or tender, chewy ramen swimming in spicy-hot broth just might make you feel better while your symptoms run their course. Nate Simon, a physician, is both a man of science and a devout foodie, but on this topic he is a bit of a party pooper. Asked if he has a go-to restaurant dish or two to help with his cold symptoms, Simon, an anesthesiologist, was prepared: “The science is not good enough to pinpoint specific foods.” He pulled out all kinds of facts and studies. “There’s no silver bullet,” he continued. “A lot of the cures or remedies are anecdotal.” Simon, who lives in Sacramento, Calif., says most colds are “self-limited,” meaning they’re going to swoop in, inflict damage upon your nose and throat and then vacate the premises in a matter of days. “You could say, ‘I ate this food and felt better.’ But you could also say, ‘I wore green socks and felt better,’ ” he said.


Harry’s “Cold or Flu” Chicken and Vegetable Soup at Harry’s Cafe. Some think certain cultural foods might help ward off sickness — or at least make you feel better. Still, the doctor advises that it’s perfectly OK to gravitate toward comfort foods when you’re ailing. They’re nourishing, they probably inspire pleasant memories, and, more than likely, these foods have healthy ingredients. “For some reason, I really like Korean and Japanese food” when ailing, he said. “Warm rice dishes and soups.” At Harry’s CafÈ in Sacramento, there’s a soup so good it practically comes with a guarantee. Harry’s “cold or flu” chicken vegetable soup seems to fix everything but your tax problems. He uses ginger, pepper and dry herbs to give the broth a kick of heat. “I made that soup for myself before I even opened the restaurant,”

said owner Harry Luong. “It works for me. When I have a cold, I want something to make me sweaty and make me feel better. That’s why I wanted it a little spicy.” If you’re going to indulge in wishful thinking, why settle for a sugarpill placebo when you could have a seductively simple square made of bittersweet chocolate ganache from Venezuela or a chewy caramel infused with French lavender and sprinkled with a pinch of fleur de sel? Dark chocolate has antioxidants. That much we know. “Chocolate makes you feel better mentally,” said Ginger Elizabeth Hahn, a formally trained chocolatier. “Polyphenols exist in chocolate.

The famous opalescent clock keeps time at the center of the main concourse in Grand Central Terminal is shown in New York, Jan. 9. The country’s most famous train station and one of its finest examples of Beaux Arts architecture in America turns 100 on Feb. 1.

Grand Central Terminal marking 100 years NEW YORK (AP) Grand Central, the country’s most famous train station and one of the finest examples of Beaux Arts architecture in America, turns 100 on Feb. 1. Its centennial comes 15 years after a triumphant renovation that removed decades of grime and restored its glittering chandeliers, cathedral windows and famous ceiling depicting a night sky. The building’s survival is also a testament to historic preservation: The landmark was saved from demolition in the 1970s thanks to a battle spearheaded by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1978, the court ruled that cities have the right to protect historic buildings, even if that limits the owner’s ability to develop or sell the property. The decision legitimized preservation efforts around the country. Grand Central was an engineering wonder when it opened in 1913, with trains flowing seamlessly over 67 subterranean tracks and thousands of people departing and arriving daily from around the country. Purists note that it’s actually not a station, but a terminal, where trains stop and start their routes rather than passing through. But it’s always been much more than a place to get on or off a train: It’s a spectacular public space with marble floors, tiled arches, ornate staircases and even sculpture inspired by Greek and Roman mythology. “The whole point was that regular people would feel like they were in a cathedral,” said Jessica Halem, spokeswoman for the Municipal Art Society. The terminal also symbolized “the great era of transportation,” said Mickey Jacob, president of the American Institute of Architects. “The grandeur and elegance coming into this space suggested the great adventure beyond.” But the era of luxurious long-distance train travel began to fade after World War II. By the time Grand Central’s restoration began in the late 1990s, the roof leaked, bathrooms were unusable, pigeons roosted in corners, and the windows and ceil-

Onassis was the widow of President John F. Kennedy, and their daughter, Carolyn Kennedy Schlossberg, is expected to attend a centennial launch event in Grand Central Feb. 1. One of the terminal’s best-known features is the ceiling painting of the zodiac, with gold-leaf constellations and twinkling light bulb stars. But a commuter in 1913 noticed that the zodiac was backwards it’s a mirror image of how the sky actually looks. Among the explanations given: It was painted from God’s point of view, above the heavens. While you’re staring up, look for a hole in the ceiling near the Pisces constellation that marks the spot where cables secured a rocket ship displayed here in 1957. And in the ceiling’s northwest corner, near the stationmaster’s office, there’s a black smudge. That’s the color of the ceiling before the renovation. Other fun facts for Grand Central cognoscenti: The times listed on a board for MetroNorth trains are a minute earlier than actual departures, to give passengers precious seconds to board in time. The information booth’s brass kiosk hides a spiral staircase connecting to a booth a floor below. And there’s a secret train platform a few blocks away beneath the WaldorfAstoria Hotel, where U.S. presidents visiting New York usually stay. (The hotel is north of Grand Central but the terminal’s subterranean footprint extends from 42nd to 97th streets.) President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, whose legs were paralyzed from polio, used the platform to exit a train unobserved. A waiting car took him into the Waldorf garage through an underground passage.

Jodie Foster’s greatest performances LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jodie Foster had everyone talking when she took the unusual step of revealing she’s a lesbian on the Golden Globes stage Sunday night. This hadn’t exactly been a secret, given that she has two sons with her former partner. But the two-time Oscar winner has been notoriously protective of her privacy, which made the rambling and emotional speech such a riveting aberration. But this is also a good opportunity to talk about what made Foster famous in the first place: the strong screen persona and versatile talent she’s displayed over her 47 years as an actress. Here’s a look at five of her best performances: • “The Silence of the Lambs” (1991): The word “iconic” gets tossed around a lot without much thought, but it’s truly applicable here in describing the work of Foster and co-star Anthony Hopkins. Foster won the second of her two best-actress Oscars (the first was for 1988’s “The Accused”) as young FBI agent Clarice Starling, who’s sent to pick the brain of the fiendish and fearsome Hannibal Lecter. She’s brilliant and resourceful, the scrappy, self-made underdog who dares to go toe to toe with a psychopath. • “Taxi Driver” (1976): It’s frightening when you think about not only how good Foster was at such a young age but also how young her childprostitute character of Iris was, as well. Her work in one of Martin Scorsese’s greatest films presents a fascinating dichotomy. She has to project a worldwariness and a cynicism beyond her years but also a youthful vitality, a freshness and the hint of promise. She’s only 12 years old but she earned an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actress.

• “Freaky Friday” (1976): In a great demonstration of Foster’s range, she played an extremely different kind of kid later the same year. She’s actually playing an adult, too, since this classic Disney comedy hinges on the idea that her character, Annabel, switches bodies with her mother (Barbara Harris), giving each a brief taste of how tough the other’s life is. This is probably my earliest memory of Foster — she’s hilarious and charming with her tomboyish toughness and quick wit. • “Inside Man” (2006): Foster plays a supporting part in Spike Lee’s slick bank heist thriller, but it’s such an intriguing departure for her that I had to pick it. She plays Madeline White, who has the vague occupation of functioning as a fixer for the wealthy and powerful. Here she’s working for the bank’s founder (Christopher Plummer), who sends her to retrieve something damaging from a safe deposit box. It’s actually a quasivillainous role: a well-connected, well-spoken social climber who’s all business beneath her cool, blond exterior, and it was juicy fun to watch her reveal yet another facet of her talent. • “A Very Long Engagement” (2004): Who knew Foster was fluent in French? Seeing her turn up here, speaking flawlessly in a foreign language, was a huge surprise and a thrill. Her role is so small as a soldier’s wife in director Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s lavish and lively World War I romance that you long to see more of her. Actually, you don’t even realize it’s Foster at first; she’s in the distance when we see her at a crowded marketplace, and she has a scarf pulled over her head. But eventually she starts speaking in that instantly recognizable, husky voice. Talk about a real revelation.

‘Everything is falling into place’ New album from Randy Houser reflects personal and professional changes for the singer-songwriter BY JIM DAVIS Staff Writer Randy Houser spent the first few years of his career searching for solid ground. Almost a decade and three albums after making the move to Nashville, Tenn., the 37-year-old Mississippi native feels like he’s truly found a place to call home. He married his wife, Jessa Lee Yantz, a little more than a year ago, and together they welcomed son West Yantz Houser last March. Add in the fact that his new single — “How Country Feels” (from his forthcoming album by the same name) — is making waves on country radio, and it’s easy to see why the singer-songwriter is in a good place these days. “Everything is falling into place,” Houser said. “I couldn’t be more excited.” He has good reason to be. The single is at No. 2 on the country music charts and is Houser’s fastest-rising single to date, while the album — his first with Stoney Creek Records — will be released nationwide Tuesday and features 15 new songs. “At the beginning, we didn’t know how many songs we were going to put on there,” Houser said during a recent phone interview with the Troy Daily News. “We just kept recording and they kept coming out great, so we put them on there.” He said the freedom to load up the album with a couple of extra songs was a conscious decision to give music fans their money’s worth in a time in which everything else seems to be getting cut back. “(Stoney Creek President Benny Brown) sees the value of giving fans more,” Houser said. “I think people are hurting right now, and I think people should get some more bang for their buck. I don’t make the career — the fans do — and I finally realized that. I realized I had to make something for the fans.” Houser — who scored a No. 2 hit with the 2008 single “Boots On” — said he had plenty of help making that happen. Being a new husband and father, he said he learned to welcome input from his new “family” at Stoney Creek, as well his close circle of songwriting brethren. “I did lean on people to listen to songs (for the album), and that process was definitely different for me,” said Houser, who wrote or co-wrote seven tracks on the disc. “But one of the reasons I moved to Nashville was to hear what other people were writing. So that support system and my songwriting buddies has been amazing. Everybody came through for me and it took a ton of pressure off of me.”

The result, he said, is an album he’s immensely proud of. “I think it’s the best album I’ve made,” he said. “Before, I think I thought everything had to be so personal. But I wanted to make this album about having fun for the fans and, in the process, I had fun doing it. It made making music fun again.” In addition to the title track, Houser filled his third studio album with songs ranging from uplifting, lively tunes (“Sunshine on the Line” and “Growing Younger”) to more thought-provoking material (“Power of a Song” and “Like a Cowboy”) that showcases his soulful voice. American Idol alum Kristy Lee Cook joined him on “Wherever Love Goes,” which allowed Houser a chance to pair his rich, baritone voice with Cook’s soaring vocals. “We heard that song as a demo — as a duet — and the song had gone through several hands before it came to us,” Houser remembered. “Benny suggested Kristy, and, man, she came in and sang the fire out of it. I really appreciate the energy she put into that song.” He said another of his favorites, “Like A Cowboy,” is somewhat biographical in that it reflects the itinerant nature of his profession. “I wrote that song with my buddy Brice Long, and it’s kind of how I feel: Going out on the road, coming home for a short period of time, then leaving again,” he said. Houser said he decided to close the album with a song that leaves listeners with a personal glimpse of who he is. “I think ‘Route 3 Box 250 D’ is the most revealing song on there. That was my address for that part of my life, and it’s like a snapshot of my life at that time,” he said. “I think it’s important to share a little of your life with your fans on each album, and I try to let people in on who I am and the reasons I am who I am.” By the end of this album, they’ll have a pretty good idea.

Arnold returns to screen in ‘The Last Stand’ BY CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Film Reviewer “The Last Stand” is the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie you didn’t even realize you wanted to see. This is the action superstar’s first leading role in a decade, having left acting to serve as the governor of California and whatnot, and while it may not have occurred to you to miss him during that time, it’s still surprisingly good to see him on the big screen again. He is not exactly pushing himself here. Korean director Kim Jee-woon’s American filmmaking debut turns out to be an extremely Schwarzeneggerish Schwarzenegger film, full of big, violent set pieces and broad comedy. He may look a little creaky (and facially freaky) these days, but Arnold proves he’s still game for the mayhem as he fires off rounds and tosses off one-liners, and the movie at least has the decency to acknowledge that it knows that you know that he’s old.

Turns out these new folks (led by Peter Stormare) are there laying the groundwork for Mexican drug kingpin Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), who’s just escaped federal custody in Las Vegas in elaborate fashion. He’s headed straight for the border at Sommerton with a hostage in the passenger seat in a stolen, souped-up Corvette that can reach speeds of 250 mph.

who gives his weapons pet names. That would be Knoxville. The shootouts and showdowns are muscular, high-energy and consist of an insane amount of gunfire, although there are some bursts of squirminducing, creative carnage. Much of the hand-to-hand combat is shot and edited in a way to obscure what Schwarzenegger is actually doing while creating the illusion that he’s kicking all kinds of butt. Far more effective is a clever, intimate car chase through a cornfield that’s alternately thrilling and quietly suspenseful. That this scrappy band of underdogs can take out the more technologically advanced villain and his crew should come as no surprise. It’s as predictable as Arnold saying he’ll be back, and making good on that promise. “The Last Stand,” a Lionsgate release, is rated R for strong, bloody violence throughout and language.

Writer, editor write about writing BY LAURA IMPELLIZZERI Associated Press “Good Prose: The Art of Nonfiction” (Random House), by Tracy Kidder and Richard Todd: Writing about writing is riddled with pitfalls. Take that sentence, even: Should we reconsider the passive voice? Should we clarify which instance of “writing” we mean as a noun and which as a verb form, if either? And, anyway, what do we mean by pitfalls: traps or tricks? Actually, the challenge is more complicated than that. Writing is a specific and individual task: No two pieces can sound the same without one or both being diminished, and no two personalities approach the creative process in exactly the same way. Successful reporting and writing also involve so much of a special kind of pursued luck that they’re usually irreparably harmed when they’re dissected. Reassembled descriptions of the process often end up sounding like prescriptions. Or bragging. Lucky readers of Tracy Kidder’s and Richard Todd’s conversation about their four shared decades in the writing life, “Good Prose: The Art of Nonfiction,” don’t get pulled into those weeds until the book’s very end. And, by then, Todd and Kidder have earned the right to offer a few quick tips. Besides, their final chapter, “Being Edited and Editing,” opens with a description of this crucial part of the writing process that is more frank and helpful than any in recent memory. It’s more than a fig leaf when Kidder, a long-form journalist and winner of the Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award and many other accolades, mentions his editors’ harsh assessments of his early work. Those are important to hear. And it’s important to know that Kidder still suffers from disorganization, ballooning prose and melodrama. He still spreads printouts of a piece all over the floor or a table to see its parts more clearly, he still needs help shaping ideas, he must “work on keeping quiet,” and he still reaches a point in each project when he wants to quit. For his part, Todd is gorgeously open about how many editors work. “All magazines are dictatorships,” he asserts in describing his own midlevel role at The Atlantic. His most succinct argument for the work of editors is equally sweeping: “Most problems in writing are structural, even on the scale of the page. … Editors ideally can hear and see prose in a way that is difficult for the writer.” Organized around topics such as using time elements, being accurate and developing a compelling voice, or “sound,” ”Good Prose” is as approachable and applicable as any writing manual available.

Personal finance industry gets drubbing BY LAURA IMPELLIZZERI Associated Press “Pound Foolish: Exposing the Dark Side of the Personal Finance Industry” (Portfolio/ Penguin), by Helaine Olen: After the financial crisis began in 2008, it suddenly became OK, even desirable, to talk about the illogic of ballooning borrowing and runaway stocks and the inevitability that bubbles pop. For years, financial journalists had been required to “balance” their realization that lending had come loose from its moorings with industry assertions that things simply worked differently now. In 2008, we finally could say the emperor the overavailability of all types of debt, the expectation that markets would heal all ills had no clothes. We no longer had to wait for his side of the story. That was a good thing. It made possible a whole new genre of nonfiction highly readable deconstructions of how regulatory and moral gaps spawn financial excess and contributed to the collapse. There are even subgenres, including half-investigation-half-confessions. It is

in this burgeoning category that Helaine Olen presents “Pound Foolish: Exposing the Dark Side of the Personal Finance Industry.” Olen is taking on the sellers of a particularly insidious form of snake oil, the idea that if you try really hard and maybe pay $29.95 for a book or $89.95 for an online “membership” or even more to attend a live program you, too, can achieve financial success. A former Los Angeles Times

reporter who made a career interviewing people about their personal finances and getting them professional advice, Olen opens with a rundown of major self-promoters in the field. Taking a thorough and deserved drubbing are Suze Orman (“rebuilding America one wallet at a time”), David Bach (“the Latte Factor”), Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko (“The Millionaire Next Door”), and Dave Ramsey (with seminars in Cancun and in churches and military bases across the U.S. promoting the elimination of personal debt). He’s particularly galling, given that he and his wife filed for bankruptcy protection in 1990, and his main recommendation is to get unemotional, stay out of debt and avoid bankruptcy. His prescription at for a family living on $5,000 a month after taxes far more than the U.S. median income includes paying $1,250 for housing and $350 for health care.

flag should pop up for anyone who knows that Orman largely refuses to invest in the same stocks and funds that she frequently promotes. Olen then translates the doublespeak of traditional personal finance institutions to reveal lots more hot air. There are mutual funds and retirement plans promoted for their safety that actually charge fees so high they can cut an account’s value by 28 percent over time (that’s from a U.S. Labor Department report about 401(k) plans). She convincingly argues that the fad for “empowering” women to manage their own finances ends up doing the opposite. Olen sees even financial literacy education with the simplistic message that security comes from planning and self-control as a “myth,” especially given that much of it is sponsored by usurious lenders reaping the considerable benefit of brand loyalty from their students. And forget variable annuities. Just forget you ever heard of them. Olen’s biggest gripes are that no one — not the policy makers, not do-gooders and not the industry whose advice she conveyed

to hundreds of her Los Angeles Times subjects — is addressing income inequality and that American public policy offers little real support for low- and moderateincome Americans. But the part where she offers alternatives and outlines — the new thinking she’d like to see — gets short shrift. And that makes her incisive criticism of the personal finance world sound like an intellectual exercise. Her closing observation, for instance, could have enriched her analysis throughout: She notes that the era of personal responsibility and economic growth that we’re asked to harken back to as we get our financial houses in order actually was an era when many government and corporate financial supports first matured. Maybe, just maybe, the rise of pensions and employer-sponsored health insurance, the G.I. bill, welfare as we knew it, and the building of the interstate highway system weren’t drags on prosperity. Could it be that they contributed to Americans’ personal financial security as they bolstered the economy as a whole?

and animatronics. Then about six years ago, the state of Texas modified its Career and Technology classes, narrowing course offerings for schools. Tucker elected to continue teaching his film classes. As his students move through the series of classes, they eventually embark on projects to create their own films for class projects — and even for community service. But first they must be awakened to the techniques and characteristics of the many film genres. Most aren’t aware of the manipulation of the audience that underlies all filmmaking, Tucker said. “We tend to go to the movies to be entertained. When we watch a movie, we don’t consider, ‘How did they do that?’ We don’t analyze the technique or the message,” he said. But manipulation is not necessarily bad, he tells students. “They try to have you

adopt their perspective,” he said. Often the message is subliminal — and it always targets interpersonal relationships and communication in some form, he said. Even a film like “Castaway,” which follows a Federal Express employee marooned on a desert island, examines relationships and how time and distance affect a romance. Even on the island, the marooned worker, played by Tom Hanks, established a relationship with a soccer ball he names Wilson. A film is a universally modern communication tool used by all countries to express their customs, perspectives, morals, and issues, Tucker said. “So how cool is it to look at a view of the world, not only from the past but also the present, at how we have displayed our society.” His freshmen begin studying the horror genre with “Frankenstein.” Next comes comedy with discus-

sion centered on a movie such as “Ferris Buehler’s Day Off.” “I want them to see how every movie attempts to manipulate the audience — to see their perspective and agree with it,” he said. As the year progresses, Tucker presents music videos, showing — as he did Monday — the first one ever produced, “A Hard Day’s Night,” featuring The Beatles at the height of their popularity in 1964. When Tucker played the first 20 minutes of the film in class, he stopped it briefly to ask if the students knew the names of the shaggy-haired, suited pop stars with the strong British accents. “Who is this?” he asked, freezing the frame on Paul McCartney. “I don’t know,” said several students. “John Lennon,” said another. “This is Paul McCartney. He’s one of two Beatles still alive,” Tucker said.

Rate on 30-year mortgage dips to 3.38 percent WASHINGTON (AP) — The average U.S. rate on the 30-year fixed mortgage inched closer to its record low this week, helping to keep home buying more affordable. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac says the rate on the 30-year loan dipped to 3.38 percent. That’s down from 3.40 percent last week. And it’s slightly above the 3.31 percent rate reached in November, the lowest on records dating to 1971. The average on the 15-year fixed mortgage was unchanged at 2.66 percent. The record low is 2.63 percent. The rate on the 30-year fixed mortgage averaged 3.66 percent in 2012, the lowest annual average in 65 years, according to Freddie Mac. Cheaper mortgages are a key reason the housing market began to come back last year. Many economists predict the housing recovery will strengthen in 2013.

Feds finalize protections for mortgage borrowers WASHINGTON (AP) — The government’s consumer lending watchdog finalized new rules Thursday aimed at protecting homeowners from shoddy service and unexpected fees charged by companies that collect their monthly mortgage payments. Mortgage servicing companies will be required to provide clear monthly billing statements, warn borrowers before interest rate hikes and actively help them avoid foreclosure, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau said. The rules also require companies to credit people’s payments promptly, swiftly correct errors and keep better internal records. In a departure from proposed rules released in August, the agency said that mortgage companies will not be allowed to seek foreclosure on a person’s home while that person is trying to arrange lower monthly payments or otherwise avoid losing the home. The change will end the practice of “dual-tracking,” pushing a borrower into foreclosure while discussing a loan modification with that borrower. The rules “will provide a fairer and more effective process for troubled borrowers who face the potential loss of their homes,” CFPB Director Richard Cordray said in remarks prepared for a public event in Atlanta Thursday.

Put some sparkle into your house during the dark months of winter BY KIM PALMER Minneapolis Star Tribune The days are gray and dreary, the holidays are history and those festive seasonal decorations that gave our interiors warmth and sparkle last month are now back in storage boxes. It’s no wonder that we — and our homes — have the winter blahs. So what to do? You don’t have to undertake a major makeover to give your decor a big boost, according to interior designers. Fresh colors and a few new or repurposed accessories can go a long way toward perking up winter-weary rooms. “January is a good month for this,” said Christine Sutphen, an interior designer with Gabberts Design Studio in Edina, Minn. To enliven interiors, she advocates reinterpreting some of the same elements that make holiday decorating so appealing, such as light, texture and greenery. “The holidays are a very sensory experience,” Sutphen said, but there’s no reason homes can’t appeal to the senses once the holidays are over. “What do we have in December that we’re devoid of in January?” she said. “What can you do for your home to give it the life and sparkle it had earlier?” Here are tips from designers on refreshing winter decor: • Picture the possibilities: Take photos of the rooms you want to enhance, then study them to see what’s needed. • Accessorize: Rooms are like outfits, according to Sutphen, and can be greatly enhanced by accessories. How many is a matter of personal taste, but in her view, homes tend to be under-accessorized most of the year. “Mantels are so nicely done during the holidays and so neglected the rest of the year,” she said. “A few more important pieces are better than a lot of little tchotchkes,” cautioned


A cozy winter scene at Gabberts in the Galleria in Edina, Minn. Give your house a new look for the new year. Catherine Harrington, an interior designer with Waldenwood, an Eden Prairie, Minn., remodeling firm. • Perk up pillows: New accent pillows can go a long way toward refreshing your interiors. “There are so many great fabrics, colors and price points,” Sutphen noted. Or make your own. • Move things around: Harrington is a fan of creative rearranging. “Redecorating doesn’t have to be a lot of buying. It can be reusing things you already have,” she said, such as moving your livingroom lamps to the bedroom and vice versa, or putting a small bedroom chest in the dining room. “All of a sudden it looks like a brand-new piece,” she said. Sutphen encourages clients to “open up the buffet doors” in search of “new” accessories. “What have you inherit-

ed but never known what to do with?” she said. “Maybe it’s Grandma’s plate that has always had the turkey on it. Maybe it’s time to hang it on the wall.” • Illuminate: “January is such a dark month,” Sutphen said. That’s why lighting — task, ambient and decorative — is extra-important during the winter. “Proper lighting will bring a room to life,” she said. Try a new chandelier — they’re now popular in just about every room of the house, even over kitchen islands and bathtubs. “It can be a piece of jewelry for the home, and add a little bit of bling,” she said. “And adding a mirror to a room can do a ton to bounce around light.” • Color therapy: “A fresh coat of paint makes everything fresh and new,” Harrington said. Try fresh spring or lime

green on walls. “It’s very popular and has almost become a neutral,” she said. • Rethink artwork: Try hanging a favorite piece of art in a new spot. Or group artwork in a new way, such as taking two prints with complementary colors or patterns and framing them as a pair. • Add greenery: “We’re so happy to add garlands during the holidays,” Sutphen said. “Then we’re devoid of Mother Nature in January. I’m a huge fan of plants, real or silk. It’s an inexpensive way to add height and interest.” • Add shine: The holidays are abundant with sparkle. To brighten up winter interiors, try an iridescent window treatment, a throw with some metallic threads or an antique book with some shiny gold on the spine.

There’s a buzz in the air. The real estate market has improved and may be on the road to recovery. But the improvement in the housing market is not treating all home sellers equally. Some wellpriced listings in prime locations are selling within a couple of weeks. In other areas, it still takes months to sell, and prices haven’t fully stabilized. There are several factors that could be keeping your home from selling. One is the state of the local housing market. Residential real estate is a local business. National trends, while informative, don’t necessarily apply to the state of the market in your neighborhood.

The power of teamwork. We’re here to help you reach new heights.

What’s in and what’s out in today’s houses BY MICHELLE JENNINGS WIEBE Tampa Bay Times House-hunting can be so much fun and so overwhelming at the same time. If you are out looking for your next castle, it is wise to create a wish list of what you personally desire for your home, including the interiors. While viewing different houses, take a camera and a notepad to document how each compares to your list. In today’s realestate market, the features below are definitely on many homebuyers’ wish lists. • What’s in: Modern kitchens. The kitchen is the heart of every home and, therefore, has become the most important space for homebuyers. Increasingly,

buyers want a modern open kitchen with an informal eat-in area, for both meals and homework. Center islands are desired, for their added counter space and storage. Large sinks under a window always are a hit. Appliances are one of the most expensive items in a home, so make sure to look at the condition, age (including energy efficiency) and overall appearance. As for countertops, natural stone such as granite is still popular, but quartz counters such as Silestone and Caesarstone are becoming more in demand. • What’s out: Long, narrow galley kitchens and separate dining rooms • What’s in: Open floor plans, numerous windows and high ceilings. In newer homes, buyers

desire open spaces, such as the kitchen and family room having open access to each another. Superior natural lighting is on most homebuyers’ wish lists, so large and abundant windows achieve this. High ceilings create spaciousness and give good lighting and decorating options. • What’s out: Low ceilings covered in popcorn or knockdown textures. • What’s in: Durable hardwood flooring and tile. More and more, buyers are opting for homes with hardwood flooring and/or tile due to the resilience and maintenance. These floors also can give style and beauty to any room. In older homes, original hardwood flooring may be hidden under old carpet. It’s important to see what is

underneath, and see if the hardwood can be refinished. Broadloom carpet may still be considered for bedrooms. • What’s out: : Different flooring in every room, dirty carpet. • What’s in: Lavish bathrooms. Buyers typically want at least two full bathrooms, preferably with windows for natural lighting and ventilation. They also desire walk-in showers instead of shower/tub combinations. However, at least one bathtub should be in the home. For the master bathroom, most buyers wish for two sinks, a freestanding tub, a shower with a myriad of water features, and a separate water closet for the toilet. • What’s out: Whirlpool

tubs with expansive tub decks. • What’s in: Plentiful bedrooms. On average, most buyers want a minimum of three bedrooms, even if they are single or a couple without children. Bedrooms can serve multiple purposes, such as a home office, exercise room or man cave. Some buyers want all the bedrooms on the same level, especially if they have small children. Most like the master bedroom to have some type of separation from the children’s rooms and have their own in-suite bathroom and closet area. Boomers are seeking a full bedroom/bath on the first floor for aging parents, or for their own room later in life. • What’s out: The master bedroom sharing a bath-

room with another bedroom. • What’s in: Media-filled family/gathering room. The cocooning trend continues, as spending time with family and friends is paramount to well-being. Large flatscreen televisions and a comfortable seating area to accommodate many people are preferred by most buyers. • What’s out: Formal living rooms only used during the holidays. • What’s in: Outdoor living spaces. Buyers want an area to enjoy the great outdoors. This includes pool decks, outdoor kitchens, TV viewing areas and even fireplaces. Also in newer homes, there is a trend to integrate the interiors with the exterior and views, with large sliding glass doors, partitions and windows.

tations about the current pickedup market. In some areas, the improved market means that homes are taking less time to sell, not that prices have increased. In other markets, like Phoenix, prices have jumped approximately 25 percent from a year ago but are still way below where they were at the peak of the market. If prices dropped 50 percent in your area, they need to increase 100 percent to get back to where they were before the decline. For instance, if your home was worth $100,000 in 2006 and dropped 50 percent in value and then increased 50 percent of the lower value, it would be worth $75,000. It needs to increase 100 percent ($50,000 plus $50,000) to recoup your loss. The condition of your home will influence the market value. You need to lower the price to account for deferred maintenance or a dated decor, or take care of these issues so that you can present your home in move-in condition. You’ll then attract more buyers and sell for more. It’s always possible that your home has not been properly marketed. Ask your listing agent to provide you with copies of all advertising. More than 88 percent of today’s homebuyers use the Internet to find a home. THE CLOSING: Make sure your listing is receiving wide Internet exposure, including a lot of good-quality photographs.

The housing market is pulling out of the worst recession since the Great Depression. This is fresh in buyers’ minds. There are plenty of buyers who think this is the right time to buy, but they’re not inclined to make offers on overpriced listings. Sellers often wonder why buyers won’t make an offer at a lower price if they think the list price is high. Buyers don’t want to waste their time making an offer if the seller is unrealistic. Making an offer takes a lot of time and emotional energy. Most buyers who have the wherewithal to buy a home don’t have time to waste.
