Committee backs loan request New pub/tavern slated for former O’Brien’s location BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer

Same standards should apply During her time in Iraq, Alma Felix would see her fellow female soldiers leave the Army installations where she worked at a desk job and head into combat with their male counterparts. But many returned home feeling that few knew of their contributions. “I guess we do disappear into the background,” the 27year-old former Army specialist said. See Page 9.

A new pub/tavern is projected for the former O’Brien’s Pub location, provided city council follows the Troy Downtown Loan Committee’s recommendation from the Jan. 24 meeting. Troy resident Doug Boyle purchased the

TROY property at 109 E. Main St. at the Jan. 3 sheriff’s auction. He requested a loan of $35,920 toward the building purchase of $41,000. Boyle commented that Troy “has truly become a dining destination” that he’s excited to partake in. Council will vote on emergency legislation, as a sheriff’s sale entails a 30-day deadline. In a letter to the city referenced at the meeting, Boyle outlined the renovations he has

already made on the building. He plans “to evaluate the viability of bringing this abandoned property back to life as an upscale old Chicago style pub/tavern.” The improvements already made, totaling $28,000, include work on the bathrooms, front building facade, floors, bar and kitchen, including a new solid walnut bar and tabletops. Troy Main Street President Patty Rose said she could vouch for Boyle’s character, as he has invested “a lot of sweat equity.”


Gauldin awaits verdict

Funding for safety routes discussed

He faces 15 years to life if convicted of murder charge BY WILL E SANDERS Civitas Media

Meeting a day later than usual because of the Martin Luther King holiday, Covington Village Council on Tuesday night heard an update on efforts to gain state funds to improve the safety of children’s routes to school. See Page 3.

A few tips on being poor in the U.S. Like most Americans, these last few weeks we've noticed a chunk of our paychecks have gone missing. While politicians promised not to raise taxes, they failed to mention that they would let a few of those pretty comfy tax breaks roll off in the sunset. So it was quite painful to see how much that tax break affected my paycheck.

tols and handguns with one of any military-style features like detachable stock, pistol grips or grenade launchers. It also bans 157 specific firearms, while excluding 2,258 hunting and sporting rifles and shotguns. And it bans magazines that accept more than 10 rounds. Feinstein aimed to improve upon the previous assault weapons ban she authored, which expired in 2004 when Congress failed to renew it under NRA pressure. Original passage of that bill in 1994 was blamed for costing Democrats control of the House and Senate after they supported it. There’s also considerable debate about its effectiveness during the years it was in effect, in part because of loopholes that allowed gun manufacturers to work around it. Feinstein’s new version is more comprehensive in defining what kinds of weapons are banned. The NRA responded that the new bill would infringe on the constitutional right to bear arms and that instead the focus should be on prosecuting criminals and improving the

First Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Tony Kendell and Public Defender Steve King both gave their closing arguments during the second day of Gauldin’s murder trial. Gauldin, 22, of Troy, has entered a plea of not guilty to a lone count of murder stemming from the death of Malisa Louann DeLaSancha, 4. Malisa died April 14, two days after prosecutors say she was intentionally burned with a lighter on her hands and feet and slammed and thrown into a living room wall by Gauldin as the victim’s two siblings watched in horror. Gauldin, who lived at the residence with the mother of the children, maintains Malisa fell down the stairs, but expert medical testimony discounted his claim in court. Initially, the two siblings told authorities their sister fell down the stairs, which matched Gauldin’s description of what took place on the night of April 12 at 1012 Caldwell St. Days later after Gauldin

Analysts to Apple: Bend your knee to Wall Street NEW YORK (AP) — Apple needs to come down off its pedestal and start making nice with Wall Street, analysts said Thursday as investors hammered the company’s stock. The sell-off put Apple a hair’s-breadth away from losing its status as the world’s most valuable company. At Thursday’s close, it was worth $423 billion, just 1.6 percent more than No. 2 Exxon Mobil Corp. The plunge was set off by Apple’s quarterly earnings report late Wednesday, which suggested the company’s nearly decade-long growth run is slowing drastically. The stock ended down $63.51 or 12 percent, at $450.50. It last traded that low a year ago.

Former prosecutor to head SEC WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama sent his strongest signal yet Thursday that he wants the government to get tougher with Wall Street, appointing a former prosecutor to head the Securities and Exchange Commission for the first time in the agency’s 79-year history. Mary Jo White, former U.S. attorney in Manhattan, has an extensive record of prosecuting white-collar crime. She also won convictions in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the 1998 terrorist attacks on two U.S. embassies in Africa, and put crime boss John Gotti away. If confirmed, she will have the job of enforcing complicated regulations written in response to the worst financial crisis since the Depression.


U.S. hit by new stomach bug NEW YORK (AP) — A new strain of stomach bug sweeping the globe is taking over in the U.S., health officials say. Since September, more than 140 outbreaks in the U.S. have been caused by the new Sydney strain of norovirus. It may not be unusually dangerous; some scientists don’t think it is. But it is different, and many people might not be able to fight off its gutwrenching effects. Clearly, it’s having an impact. The new strain is making people sick in Japan, Western Europe, and other parts of the world. It was first identified last year in Australia and called the Sydney strain. In the U.S., it is now accounting for about 60 percent of norovirus outbreaks, according to report released Thursday by the

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Norovirus once known as Norwalk virus is highly contagious and often spreads in places like schools, cruise ships and nursing homes, especially during the winter. Last month, 220 people on the Queen Mary II were stricken during a Caribbean cruise. Sometimes mistakenly called stomach flu, the virus causes bouts of vomiting and diarrhea for a few days. Every two or three years, a new strain evolves the last was in 2009. The Sydney strain’s appearance has coincided with a spike in influenza, perhaps contributing to the perception that this is a particularly bad flu season in the U.S. Ian Goodfellow, a prominent

researcher at England’s University of Cambridge, calls norovirus ‘the Ferrari of viruses’ for the speed at which it passes through a large group of people. “It can sweep through an environment very, very quickly. You can be feeling quite fine one minute and within several hours suffer continuous vomiting and diarrhea,” he said. Health officials have grown better at detecting new strains and figuring out which one is the culprit. They now know that norovirus is also the most common cause of food poisoning in the U.S. It’s spread by infected food handlers who don’t do a good job washing their hands after using the bathroom. But unlike salmonella and other foodborne illnesses, norovirus can also spread in

the air, through droplets that fly when a sick person vomits. “It’s a headache” to try to control, said Dr. John Crane, a University of Buffalo infectious disease specialist who had to deal with a norovirus outbreak in a hospital ward a couple of years ago. Each year, noroviruses cause an estimated 21 million illnesses and 800 deaths, the CDC says. For those infected, there’s really no medicine. They just have to ride it out for the day or two of severe symptoms, and guard against dehydration, experts said. The illness even got the attention of comedian Stephen Colbert, who this week tweeted: “Remember, if you’re in public and have the winter vomiting bug, be polite and vomit into your elbow.”




16 inducted in drug ring CLEVELAND (AP) — Federal prosecutors say 16 people have been indicted on charges that they were part of a ring that brought large amounts of cocaine, heroin and marijuana from Chicago to the streets of Cleveland. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Cleveland said Thursday that the ring operated between March and December of last year. The defendants range in age from 19 to 49 and all are from the Cleveland area. The indictment describes a conspiracy in which some of the defendants obtained drugs from suppliers in Chicago and then distributed them to numerous dealers on the west side of Cleveland. Federal prosecutors said the arrests “cut off a pipeline” for the movement of drugs between the two cities.

In presentations, media interviews and private business meetings, Kasich shared the story of Ohio’s improved budget and employment picture during the two years he’s been governor. Kasich repeated the themes he conveyed at last year’s Republican National Convention and often highlights at his Ohio appearances. They include dovetailing educational offerings with available jobs and reducing government red tape. A Kasich spokesman said the governor also is marketing Ohio to leaders in the advanced manufacturing, transportation, chemical and oil and gas industries.

Both children tearfully recollected the night of the tragedy Wednesday from the witness stand and testified they lied because Gauldin threatened to kill them if they didn’t. “The children told you what really happened,” Kendell said. “They said what they seen and they have never faulted from that. They’d just seen him, essentially, murder their baby sister.” Malisa was airlifted to Children’s Medical Hospital where she died two days later. She never fully regained consciousness at any point after the assault. A coroner ruled the death a homicide as a

result of multiple blunt force trauma to the head, neck and chest while another medical expect testified the child’s injuries were so severe that medical intervention would not help her because the assault that caused the wounds “neurologically devastated” the toddler. Malisa suffered from a herniated brain stem, expert testimony concluded. “I am confident that once you apply the evidence … you will come to one conclusion and that is the defendant is guilty of murder,” Kendell said. “I believe we proved this case beyond a reasonable doubt.” In his closing remarks King called the case “heart-wrenching” and “emotional,” but said he believes there are key pieces to the case missing, including that some of the

many injuries the victim sustained could not be dated to a specific cause or time. King stated the mother of Malisa, Mandy Kolker, had admitted in the past of using “questionable discipline measures,” which included corporal punishment and sometimes a belt. He said Kolker entrusted her children to Gauldin and that “there were no red lights to cause the mother … not to trust the care of such a person (Gauldin).” “We will accept the verdict, whatever it may be … and that it will be fair to Travis,” King concluded. Afterward, Judge Christopher Gee stated he would announce the verdict in court in the near future, but did not officially schedule a day and time.

country’s mental health system. “The American people know gun bans do not work, and we are confident Congress will reject Sen. Feinstein’s wrong-headed approach,” the NRA said in a statement. Feinstein said those Democrats with concerns about the legislation needed to ask themselves what their silence would mean. “Sandy Hook is more eloquent testimony than any of us could possibly give,” she said. “If members of this body are so insensitive to what happened to those small bodies from that Bushmaster when it all becomes known, America is hopeless.” Even some of Feinstein’s supporters believe the assault weapons ban is so unattainable politically that the focus should be on other measures that might even be more effective policy. Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday that he’s more concerned about limit-

ing the number of rounds in a gun magazine than about banning assault weapons that account for a small percentage of gun deaths. Biden argued that the shooter at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., could have been slowed down if he had fewer rounds in each magazine and had to change clips more often. “Maybe if it took longer, maybe one more kid would be alive,” Biden said during an online video chat on Google Plus. The vice president led a White House gun control task force in the wake of the Newtown shooting last month. Biden is launching the White House’s promotional tour on gun control Friday with a trip to Virginia, a state that has experienced its own school shooting tragedy yet maintains an avidly pro-gun tradition. His office said Biden will hold a round-table discussion in Richmond with experts who worked on gun safety following the 2007 shooting at Virginia Tech.

Second term • CONTINUED FROM 1 party in Washington during much of Obama’s first term “is hurting everybody.” “The ‘Party of No’ didn’t work out so well,” Fisher said. “So hopefully this second term there will be some more compromise.” Adams said it’s nice to see public gestures between the two parties with the likes of House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and hopes both parties can reach more compromises in the future. “American spoke and now we’ll see,” Fisher said. “We will see what will happen in four years from now and where we are at.” Adams said he believes President Obama will spend much of the next two years wrapping up loose ends of his first term to attempt to get the rest of his agenda passed and then coast the rest of the way through his second term. “It would seem as though he’s going to get his agenda completed as much as possible for a year, year and a half, to pass his initiatives and then ‘lame duck’ the rest of term which is what traditionally happens with two terms,” Adams said. Fisher said he believes that the Democratic Party speaks for much of what the American people as a whole are seeking from the government leadership. “We are on the right side of gay rights, we are on the right side of climate change, we are on the right side of gun control,” Fisher

said. In terms of economy, both Fisher and Adams disagree on the direction of the economy. “(The Democratic Party) is moving forward and it’s starting to show,” Fisher said. “Slow and Steady is better than boom and bust.” “It has slowly got better,” Adams said. “Ohio’s unemployment is down to 6.7 percent, below the nation’s unemployment rate of around 7.8 percent.” Adams said the economy is still “fragile” in Ohio with many business owners he speaks to who are concerned about the affect of the Affordable Care Act and its influence on businesses’ bottom lines. “The people I talk to are small to medium sized business owners and they are reluctant to make major fiscal decisions until they know what’s going on in D.C.,” Adams said. Fisher said he believes once the fiscal cliff was avoided at the end of 2012, people are moving forward and getting back to work and participating in the economy more. Fisher is looking at Obama’s second term with optimism. “My glass is three quarters full,” Fisher said. “I’m seeing things steadily change.” “People in Miami County are optimistic and we believe things will get better,” Adams said. “We are more cautious until we see how Congress gets better at getting a budget passed, which hasn’t been done in four years.” 2359696

Larson also will give the State of the Schools Address at this time. Also at Wednesday’s special session, Larson shared that a land acquisition to give the new school access to U.S. Route 36 is moving forward and should be complete within the next few weeks. Board members also accepted the retirement resignation of second-grade teacher Kristie Gilbert. Gilbert retired at the end of the first semester. Jennifer Pond was approved as the long term substitute to complete the school year. And, the board approved CHS students to participate in the 2013 indoor track and field season. Indoor track and field is not part of the OHSAA league as other high school sports are. Those leading the sport deemed it necessary to get school board approval from districts because they did not always know that those making it to the final tournament were indeed high school students. Larson said that this will have to be approved annually and that there are “a handful” of Covington students who he believes will participate.

Council discusses funding for school safety routes Staff Reports


Meeting a day later than usual because of the Martin Luther King holiday, Covington Village Council on Tuesday night heard an update on efforts to gain state funds to improve the safety of children’s routes to school. Village administrator Mike Busse reported he has met with Ohio Department of Transportation officials and is now working on two Safe Routes to School grants. The state would provide 80 percent of the funds for the projects, while the village would be responsible for the other 20 percent. He said the first grant application involves plans to install sidewalks in areas that currently do not have sidewalks — including areas north of Maple Street up to and including Broadway. The second grant the village is pursuing would fund additional police patrols during times that children walk to and from school. Busse said he will provide council with cost estimates on the village’s share at the Feb. 4 meeting. He noted the village has been working on the Safe Routes to School program for a couple of years.

Council gave first reading on a replacement village salary ordinance. Busse said most of the changes pertain to the police department. “I have been working with Mayor (Ed) McCord and Chief (Lee) Harmon on making adjustments to the police department pay scale,” Busse said. “We have lowered the first three steps in the pay scale to allow for the possibility of a smoother transition between our part-time and full-time positions. The proposed change will help in the future with staffing issues while allowing the police department to stay on track with their budget.” The proposed changes would not affect any current employees. During his administrator’s report, Busse advised council members: • Reported that he and McCord met with street and utility department employees. He said the employees will continue working 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.,


with work being rescheduled to limit overtime except during emergencies. • That he and fiscal officer Carmen Siefring have been reviewing tax duplicates on village-owned land, determining that some properties that should be exempt from taxes are being assessed. Siefring has contacted the county auditor to resolve the issue. • Approximately 70 radio-read water meters have been installed. Josh Long, principal of Covington Middle School, addressed council about the proposed school tax levy to build a new kindergarten-eighth grade building adjacent to Covington High School and renovations at Covington High School. Council members set 6:30 p.m. March 4, as the time and date for a public hearing for zoning text amendments. In the absence of Mayor Ed McCord, who was unable to attend the meeting because of illness, the meeting was run by Doris Beeman, council president.

“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 (Alabama) Editorial Board on gun clip capacities: Before the sun set on the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary, gun devotees across the country began their customary chant: “Guns don’t kill people; people kill people.” The Editorial Board agrees that people kill people, and that high capacity magazines allow them to kill lots of people. Today we are proposing to limit the capacity of magazines for pistols and rifles to seven-rounds. … Today’s semi-automatic pistols commonly come from the factory with 15 or 16-round clips, and aftermarket magazines can hold many more. Combat style semi-automatic rifles come from the factory with a 20 or 30-round clip, with even higher capacity magazines readily available from dealers. We believe President Barack Obama’s proposed 10-round limit is too timid. It would allow a perpetrator armed with two pistols to get off 22 shots without reloading. That’s a lot of casualties. All interchangeable clips should be limited to seven rounds unless in the hands of a sworn law enforcement officer or soldier.

Sun on U.S. energy security: ■ You can also e-mail us at U.S. oil production surged almost 14 percent in editorial@tdnpu 2012, despite falling domestic consumption. Production is projected to further accelerate in 2013. ■ Please The American Petroleum Institute reported that include your full the average daily output of crude oil jumped 779,000 name and telebarrels a day last year, the biggest increase in histophone number. ry. New technologies, especially hydraulic fracturing, have opened up vast, previously inaccessible oil deposits for extraction. At the same time, domestic oil consumption fell in 2012 to the lowest level in 16 years, according to The Wall Street Journal, which attributed the decline to the sluggish economy and stricter fuel economy standards. Also, oil imports fell 6.9 percent in 2012. As a result of the converging trends, the U.S. became a net exporter of petroleum products in 2011 for the first time since 1949, according to the Energy Information Administration of the Department of Energy. The U.S. is becoming less dependent on foreign energy sources. That’s a good thing. Energy independence is not just an economic issue but a security issue, as the armed siege in Algeria makes clear. Terrorists believed to be affiliated with al Qaida seized a remote natural gas installation and took dozens of hostages. Algerian news reports that 38 hostages, including three Americans, were killed. Algerian forces launched a series of assaults on the complex during which scores of hostages were rescued or escaped, including seven Americans. That’s all the more reason for the U.S. and Canada to continue increasing their own oil production. The technologically driven resurgence of domestic oil production has the potential to make the Middle East almost irrelevant to America’s energy supply by 2025 and thus neutralize this newest terror tactic. Developing our own energy reserves also is producing jobs and reviving the economy. This is a historic opportunity the U.S. must not squander.


St. Patrick School does excellent job To the Editor: I am writing to share my thoughts on St. Patrick School, where my three oldest children attend in grades five, three and two. I believe St. Patrick School is a great asset to our community of Troy. St. Patrick school was founded in 1888, and current enrollment is 152. As of the 2013-14 school year, St. Patrick will offer pre-school through grade eight. St. Patrick’s new junior high has been a very exciting and positive addition. Saint Patrick offers a strong academic base, and makes use of the latest technologies. Each junior high student has use of an iPad to aid in their studies, each classroom has a Smart Board, new this year, each student grades five and up has access to the Rosetta Stone language learning program —

and we are very excited to say that over the summer, St. Patrick School will be combining its school library and computer labs into an all-new media center. All this, and our students receive a faith-based education in a positive and nurturing environment. Saint Patrick students are learning their “reading, writing and arithmetic,” but equally as important, they are in a compassionate, loving, and nurturing environment, which stresses good faith and character development. As featured recently in the Troy Daily News, our fifth grade students, completely under their own planning and implementation, held a bake sale and raised more than $500 in one day to be sent to Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut. This is just one example of the kind of students attending St. Patrick School. Our parent organization is extremely active, and the Home

& School Association is happy to provide many opportunities throughout the year for our families to come together as a community. The Home & School Association also provides support to our excellent faculty, assists with field trip fees, supplies for the classrooms and contributing toward major projects that will enhance the educational experience for our students. New families are welcomed and encouraged to participate at St. Patrick School. Jan. 27-Feb. 2 is nationally designated as Catholic Schools Week. The theme this year is “Catholic Schools Raising the Standards.” I believe St. Patrick School is doing just that. In honor of Catholic Schools Week, I wanted to share with you and TDN readers the incredible educational opportunities available at St. Patrick School.


A few tips on being poor in the United States Like most Americans, these last few weeks we've noticed a chunk of our paychecks have gone missing. While politicians promised not to raise taxes, they failed to mention that they would let a few of those pretty comfy tax breaks roll off in the sunset. So it was quite painful to see how much that tax break affected my paycheck. Ouch. It hurt. I'm OK with my lot in life because I've found more often than not, "'mo money, 'mo problems." So when everybody is panicking about Mr. Jones' Dow dropping, I'm all like, “Mr. Jones needs a new belt if his pants keep dropping.” And it's not to say one day that I won't care; it’s just not today. I'm busy keeping up on my student loan payments, medical insurance payments, payments for payments and have learned to live without for a long time. But I'm happy. Strange isn't it? I actually feel blessed with less. Now I acknowledge I've had a few advantages in this life. But even with those advantages, there are still unexpected medical bills, car insurance claims and the dreaded library book fines.

Melanie Yingst Troy Daily News Columnist What? Am I the only one who has a slight panic attack when I have a 10 cent fine from an overdue library book, but when I get a huge medical bill in the mail I'm like: "Psh. Stand in line." Yes. I fret about library book fines. There’s so much advice out there, like skip coffee, don’t have any fun, sew your own clothes, make your own laundry soap and bake your own bread. Learning to be frugal is almost as overwhelming. While most is sound advice, there’s a lot I can’t relate to because: I’m busy, I’m tired and I’m not Amish. So here’s a few things I’ve found to save a few bucks in Real World U.S.A.:

— Kate Lins Troy

1. Learn to love your library. Recently, our public library revamped its online reservation system. I treat it like Heck, when you enter your library card number it's almost like you are typing out your credit card number. I have my library card number memorized because I’m just weird, OK? And it's free! Unless you're human like me and forget to renew everything once in a while. I reserve new books, CDs and DVDs and get Evan audiobooks. All it takes is a little patience. And the librarians do all the work. Sweet! 2. Coupons are the devil. OK folks, we've seen these extreme coupon people steal their way to free stuff on television. Those people are dedicated and a bit insane. Me on the other hand? I don't have time to play the “Grocery Game.” So instead I just clip the coupons online and if I save money, great. If not, better luck next time. I do cut out coupons for stuff I use a lot. When you are a family of just two, you don't go through food like most people. I'll be eating my words in a few years I'm sure. 3.Goodwill is a good deal. I didn't grow up going to thrift stores.

My sister and I didn’t wear hand me downs. Ever. But now my son wears his cousin’s clothes and I’m OK with this trade. I also find great stuff at Goodwill and places like that. So to me, it's fun to go. I always buy my third grade son books for 80 cents. I found the entire series of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid.” He was thrilled. So was I. 4. No fancy TV. I know I’ve bragged about not having cable television in my life for five years. It’s not to say that I don’t camp out at my mom’s house and watch “Duck Dynasty” marathons. To tell you the truth, there are some good shows on regular television. I get ME channel with TV classics such as “Dick Van Dyke Show,” “I Love Lucy” and “Cheers.” Wait a second. When did “Cheers” become a classic TV show? And here’s an idea. Turn it off and call a friend. Play a game with your kid. Read a book. Clean something. So here’s how I make being poor look good. A life without television isn’t so bad. Enjoy the peace and quiet. Or maybe I’ll learn how to bake my own bread.

Big crowds turn out for Stan Musial visitation ST. LOUIS (AP) — Standing outside the Cathedral Basilica as thousands filed inside to pay their respects, Stan Musial’s grandson was thankful. “Just seeing all this,” Brian Schwarze said, “and I got to play catch with him.” “I mean, he was my grandfather. But I really do believe I’m starting to understand somewhat what he meant to the whole community,” he said. Many visitors seemed to treat Thursday’s six-hour public visitation as if it was Stan the Man’s final game day, decked out in team attire and ignoring bitter cold for the chance to get one last glimpse. In an open casket, Musial was clad in the red jacket he and other Cardinals Hall of Famers wore for special occasions, a harmonica in his pocket and a red tie dotted with tiny Cardinals. The same tie that retired high school teacher Randy Pierce proudly pointed out he was wearing, too. “My wife for my last birthday gave me a big photo of President Obama giving Stan the Presidential Medal of Freedom,” Pierce said. “It’s signed by Stan, so I’ve got the important one.” Musial, a three-time National League MVP, seven-time batting champion and 24-time All-Star, died Saturday after years of declining health. He was 92. Fans turned out in droves to pay respects to a superstar who never acted the part, always making time for one more autograph, or to shake one more hand. “Sometimes, it was like ‘All right, Grandpa, we’ve got to get going,’” Schwarze said. “My mom would be yelling at him when she was a little kid like, ‘Time to go!’ and he was like ‘Hold on, I’ve got some fans still.’” Family, close friends and perhaps some of baseball’s biggest names will be back at the cathedral for a funeral on Saturday. Thursday was for the fans. A half-hour before the visitation, hundreds lined Lindell Boulevard leading to the steps of the cathedral. An hour into the six-

When a bell chimed once as the doors opened, 68year-old Evelyn Bourisaw, dressed in a red coat, exclaimed, “Time to play ball!” Among the first to go in were Audrey Kissel, 86, and Erma Bergman, 88. The two were kindred spirits of Musial, not only of his generation but also former ballplayers. Kissel played second base and Bergman pitched in a women’s professional league during World War II, popularized in the movie “A League of Their Own.” Both handed out personal baseball cards depicting them in uniforms that featured skirts and summarized achievements and listed nicknames Kissel was known as “Pigtails” and Bergman as “Bergie.” “He was a very lovely person,” Kissel said. Don Raisin, who’s worked with Cardinal team mascot Fredbird since 1985, said one of his prized possessions is a ball autographed by Musial, Enos Slaughter and Terry Moore, who played in the outfield together. “It was always exciting when you knew he was going to be at the ballpark,” Raisin said. “It’s not going to be the same on opening day.” Rope lines steered mourners toward the casket in a corner of the church. Myron Schumacher, 71,

noted that he was born in 1941, the year Musial broke into the big leagues, and was at the original Busch Stadium in 1963 for Musial’s final game. “He was amazing,” Schumacher said. Retired car salesman Bill Sanders, 64, was like many fans, as taken with Musial’s good-natured ways as his considerable baseball prowess. Sanders noted that not once in a 22year career did Musial get tossed out of a game. “All of his statistics were absolutely staggering, plus he was a true gentleman,” Sanders said. “He even liked the umpires.” Certainly his baseball accomplishments were plentiful: a .331 lifetime average, 475 homers and 3,630 career hits (1,815 at home and an equal number on the road). He helped the Cardinals to three World Series championships in the 1940s and another after his playing days ended he was general manager of the 1967 team that beat the Red Sox in seven games. The GM job was shortlived, but Musial was a frequent figure at Busch Stadium, showing up for most opening days and many postseason games, sometimes playing the harmonica, always striking a pose of that unusual, corkscrew left-handed batting stance. Though in ill health, Musial always perked up when he got to Busch Stadium. He smiled and waved during his last public appearance, a parade lap of the warning track before Game 4 of the NL championship series last fall. “His fans always did give him energy,” Schwarze said. “He could turn it on.” Even near death, the harmonica Musial learned to play while passing the time on long train trips during his career was another source of energy. “He was playing the week before he passed a lot better than I’ve ever played it,” Schwarze said. Did he still play the “Wabash Cannonball?” ”Yes, absolutely,” Schwarze added. “He always said he knew more songs but I think he knew about six songs on the harmonica and had about six jokes.”

‘House of Cards’ series being dealt by Netflix


NEW YORK (AP) — In Netflix’s bid for a flagship original drama of its own a “Sopranos” to its HBO the subscription streaming service is presenting a high-class adaptation of a British political thriller offered up all at once, with its first season immediately ready for TV-viewing gluttony. The show, “House of Cards,” is a bold attempt to remake the television landscape with the kind of prestige project cable channels like HBO, AMC and Showtime have used to define themselves. But “House of Cards,” produced by David Fincher and starring Kevin Spacey, won’t be on the dial of that refuge of quality dramas cable tele-

vision but streamed online to laptops and beamed directly to flat-screens through set-top boxes and Internet-enabled devices. “It’s sort of like we’re the new television series that isn’t on television,” says Spacey. On Feb. 1, all 13 hours of “House of Cards” will premiere on Netflix, a potentially landmark event that could herald the transition of television away from pricey cable bundles and toward the Internet a process well under way at YouTube, Hulu, Yahoo and others, but not yet tested to the degree of “House of Cards.” The show is no lowbudget Web series, but an HBO-style production for which Netflix reportedly paid in the neighborhood of $100 million for two seasons. “When we got into original programming, I wanted it to be loud and deliberate,” says Ted Sarandos, head of content at Netflix, who only will say the cost was in the “high end” for a TV show. “I wanted consumers to know that we were doing it and I want-

ed the industry to know that we were doing it so we could attract more interesting projects. Doing it in some half way, some small thing, it wasn’t going to get us there.” The revered British original aired in three seasons from 1990 to 1996 and was adapted from the books by Michael Dobbs, a notable politician and adviser to Margaret Thatcher. It starred Ian Richardson as a scheming, manipulating politician who shared his powerhungry strategies directly into the camera. With a darkly comic antihero as protagonist, it was a forerunner to characters like Walter White of “Breaking Bad” and Dexter Morgan of “Dexter.” Independent studio Media Rights Capital, a producer of films like “Ted” and “Babel,” purchased the rights to “House of Cards” and paired Fincher with the project, along with Beau Willimon, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of another political drama, “The Ides of March.”

AP MOVIE REVIEWS • “Broken City” — It should come as no surprise that every character in a movie with a title like this is either rotten to the core, or a liar, or a schemer, or the bearer of seriously damaging secrets. What is surprising is that these characters never feel like real people, despite a series of twists that should, in theory, reveal hidden, unexpected facets of their personalities and despite being played by big-name stars including Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones. They’re all still conniving, only with varying alliances and targets. At the center of these dizzying double crosses is Wahlberg as Billy Taggart, a former New York police detective who got kicked off the force after a questionable shooting. Seven years later, Billy is barely getting by as a Brooklyn private eye. Then one day, the mayor (Crowe), who’d always been on Billy’s side, hires Billy to investigate whether his wife (Zeta-Jones) is having an affair. He’s up for re-election in a week and doesn’t want to lose to a young, well-financed challenger (Barry Pepper) over revelations that he’s being cuckolded. But Billy’s digging leads to further revelations involving the mayor’s rival, the rival’s campaign manager (Kyle Chandler), the police commissioner (Jeffrey Wright) and some wealthy, well-connected land developers. Everything is simultaneously too complicated and overly spelled out. Director Allen Hughes’ film is a forgettable piece of pulp. R for pervasive language, some violence and sexual content. 108 minutes. One and a half stars out of four.

• “The Last Stand” — 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. The script also feels a bit old “The Last Stand” is essentially an amped-up version of “Rio Bravo,” with some “Jackass”-style hijinks courtesy of Johnny Knoxville himself Mexican drug kingpin (Eduardo Noriega) daringly escapes federal custody and heads for a quiet Arizona border town where Schwarzenegger, as the sheriff, rounds up a posse of misfits to stop him. But Kim keeps things moving briskly and the members of the strong supporting cast (Peter Stormare, Luis Guzman, Forest Whitaker) don’t seem to mind that they’re playing flimsy types. Everyone’s just here for a mindless good time. R for strong, bloody violence throughout and language. 107 minutes. Three stars out of four. • “LUV” — This drama about the tragic realities of fathers and sons in unforgiving urban environs can’t measure up to the lyricism of its star’s own music. It stars Common, the thoughtful, charismatic Chicago rhymer who, in three- and four-minute hiphop ruminations, summons more vibrant social imagery than these well-intended but hollow 1 hours. Taking place over a day in Baltimore, “LUV” stars Common as the former convict Vincent, who takes his 11-year-old nephew Woody (Michael Rainey Jr.) for a lesson-filled day of bonding. But Vincent’s qualifications are questionable: He’s desperate for the $22,000 he needs for a business loan and has gang members after him. It’s a promising enough conceit a stressed, untrustworthy but inherently decent guy trying to play the role model but the day takes awkward, implausible turns, jumping from violence to stoneskipping in the harbor. The dialogue, too, is often cringe-worthy as the two meet various friends and associates of Vincent’s, with cameos by Danny Glover, Dennis Haysbert, Clark Johnson and Michael Kenneth Williams. The cliches mount as the journey leads to bloody standoffs and drug dealer confrontations. Still, there is tenderness here, and first-time director Sheldon Candis should further develop his naturalistic impulse. We are, after all, not exactly showered with intimate, aspiring films of urban life. 95 minutes. One and a half stars out of four.

• “Jack Reacher” — The idea of watching a movie in which a sniper methodically manufactures his own bullets, practices weekly at a gun range, then waits quietly in an empty parking garage before shooting five people dead may not sound like the most appealing form of entertainment during these tragic days. Nevertheless, it’s important to assess “Jack Reacher” on its own terms, for what it is and what it isn’t. Besides being caught in some unfortunate timing, it’s also clever, well-crafted and darkly humorous, and it features one of those effortless bad-ass performances from Tom Cruise that remind us that he is indeed a movie star, first and foremost. OK, so maybe Cruise doesn’t exactly resemble the Reacher of British novelist Lee Child’s books: a 6foot-5, 250-pound, blond behemoth. If you haven’t read them, you probably won’t care. Even if you have read them, Christopher McQuarrie’s film the first he’s directed and written since 2000’s “The Way of the Gun” moves so fluidly and with such confidence, it’ll suck you in from the start. Jack Reacher is a former military investigator who’s become a bit of a mythic figure since he’s gone off the grid. When the deadly shooting occurs at the film’s start, authorities believe they’ve quickly found their man: a sniper who’s ex-Army himself. He reveals nothing during his interrogation but manages to scribble the words “Get Jack Reacher” on a notepad before winding up in a coma. But when Reacher arrives and reluctantly agrees to help the defense attorney (Rosamund Pike) investigate, he finds the case isn’t nearly as simple as it seems. PG-13 for violence, language and some drug material. 130 minutes. Three stars out of four. • “Gangster Squad” — This pulpy, violent tale of cops and mobsters in 1949 Los Angeles rides an uncomfortable line between outlandishness and outright parody, and it’s difficult to tell which is director Ruben Fleischer’s intention. Which is a problem. While the film wallows in period detail and has some sporadic moments of amusing banter, it’s mostly flashy, empty and cacophonous, and it woefully wastes a strong cast led by Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in barely developed, one-note roles. At its center is a performance from Sean Penn as mob king Mickey Cohen in which he doesn’t just chew up the scenery, he rolls it around in his mouth like a handful of marbles, then spits it back out again and blows it to bits with a Tommy gun for good measure. With his mashed-up boxer’s mug, thick Brooklyn accent and volatile bursts of anger, he’s as cartoony as a Dick Tracy villain. While “Gangster Squad” certainly has its intended moments of humor, the laughs Penn’s performance prompts might not have been part of the plan. Brolin stars as a police sergeant and heroic war veteran tasked with putting together a secret team to take down Cohen’s empire by his rules that is, no rules at all. R for strong violence and language. 113 minutes. One and a half stars out of four.




Consult with your rabbi about how to deal with the situation Dear Annie: I am in the process of converting to Judaism. Among other things, this involves eating only kosher food. Initially, it was difficult, but I know that doing this brings me closer to understanding more of my new religion. My problem is that most of my friends, including some Jewish friends, have an issue with my eating habits. They say eating kosher is "outdated," or they imply that I think I'm better than they are. They actively discourage my efforts. This confuses me because I don't scold my friends for eating cheeseburgers or pork, and I never insist on any special treatment. Conversion is not an easy process, and I'd like the support of my friends, but it's hard to keep my head up sometimes, especially during meals together. How do I approach this? Do I need new friends? — Questioning in California Dear Questioning: Maybe. Your friends think conversion will change who you are and the relationship they have with you. They feel marginalized by your new religious interest and are trying to undermine your convictions. This is all about them and their needs. If you are truly committed to conversion, you should not be so easily derailed. Please talk to your rabbi. If you attend services at a synagogue, see whether they have a social group for those in your age bracket. You are more likely to make new friends and find support there. Dear Annie: Some years ago, my wife and I met a lovely couple while on a trip in Germany. We had such a good time together that we made arrangements for the four of us to take other trips. We kept in contact with cards, phone calls and emails. On the occasions where we traveled to their city, we had lunch with them. We hadn't heard from them in a while, so I sent a card that came back stamped "Deceased." We don't read the obituaries from their city, so we have no idea whether both of them died or one died and the other moved, or what happened. This couple had several children who may have known of our friendship, although I never learned the children's names. It surely would be nice if their survivors would browse through the couple's address book and let the contacts know of their passing. — Miss Them in Minnesota Dear Minnesota: This is a situation that comes up whenever someone dies. The survivors do not always think of going through the deceased's address book — written or electronic — and sending notes to those listed. But it would be a kindness to do so and something the deceased surely would have wanted. You can look online for your friends' obituaries and any other information that might indicate how to contact one of their children. We hope you find out what happened and have the opportunity to express your condolences. Dear Annie: I read the letter from "Too Many Leftovers" about people who don't RSVP to invitations. It encouraged me to share my experience. Our two daughters were married in the same year. The first wedding brought the same issue of the lack of receiving RSVPs. When it came to the second wedding, I had our new son-in-law use his calligraphy skills to make a nice sign that read "For those who did not RSVP." I placed the sign on the gift table next to a jar of peanut butter, a knife and some soda crackers. I don't know why my wife and the mother of the groom didn't see the humor. I have shared this with several people, and the men always think it's hilarious. — Father of the Brides Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Are stained clothes ruined for life if they’ve been dried? Dear Heloise: I have shirts belonging to my 5-year-old with oily stains on the front. How can I remove the stains once they have been through the dryer? — A Reader in Santa Fe, N.M. Well, you might be able to, but since they have gone through the dryer, it might be tough. Here is what to try: First, treat the area with a prewash spray or stick. Then rub liquid laundry detergent onto the area until it soaks through, and wash in hot water (or the hottest water that’s safe for that fabric). Rinse and air-dry. Do not put in the dryer. It may take two or three times.

Friday, January 25, 2013











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You feel pulled between the responsibilities you have for children or a romantic partner and the demands of a group or a friend. The Full Moon always deals out tough choices. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your dilemma today is whether to focus on home and family or career and your external world. It appears that you cannot ignore your public reputation. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Today is an accident-prone day because of the Full Moon tension. Pay attention to everything you say and do. Allow extra time so you have wiggle room for whatever you do. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Naturally, you will feel the Full Moon today, because the Moon is your ruler. This particular Full Moon creates stress for money, cash flow and shared property. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Today the only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place, which is why you feel tension with partners and close friends. You can handle it. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) The Full Moon tension today is rather hidden in your chart, which means you feel vaguely uneasy or impatient with others. Actually, patience is your only recourse. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Tension with friends and groups might pull your attention away from children, sports events or romantic partners. Nevertheless, that’s where it’s at for you today. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Continue to focus on home and family needs today. Home repairs and decorating projects need your attention. (Be patient with family members.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is an accident-prone day, so be aware and mindful of everything you do. Accidents generally are caused by distractions. Keep your eyes open. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Money issues likely will arise today because of the Full Moon tension. Be flexible and tolerant, because others feel this tension as well today. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Today the only Full Moon opposite your sign is taking place, which means you have to be patient with partners and close friends. It’s too easy to be at odds with others. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Work-related circumstances require patience because of today’s Full Moon. Factoid. Therefore, you can be part of the problem or part of the solution, right? YOU BORN TODAY You are confident, active and sometimes a source of controversy. You march to the beat of your own drum and are determined to reach your goals. You’re very brave about being exactly who you are. You often are involved in the thick of the action. Your year ahead promises lovely social diversions and an opportunity to improve all your relationships. Birthdate of: Gen. Douglas MacArthur, military leader; Eddie Van Halen, musician; Ellen DeGeneres, TV host/actress. (c) 2013 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Friday, Jan. 25, the 25th day of 2013. There are 340 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 25, 1863, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln accepted Maj. Gen. Ambrose E. Burnside’s resignation as commander of the Army of the Potomac, and replaced him with Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker. On this date: • In 1533, England’s King Henry VIII secretly married his second wife, Anne Boleyn, who later gave birth to Elizabeth I. • In 1890, reporter Nellie Bly

(Elizabeth Cochrane) of the New York World completed a round-the-world journey in 72 days, 6 hours and 11 minutes. The United Mine Workers of America was founded in Columbus, Ohio. • In 1915, Alexander Graham Bell inaugurated U.S. transcontinental telephone service between New York and San Francisco. • In 1947, American gangster Al Capone died in Miami Beach, Fla., at age 48. • In 1961, President John F. Kennedy held the first presidential news conference to be carried live on radio and television.

• In 1971, Charles Manson and three women followers were convicted in Los Angeles of murder and conspiracy in the 1969 slayings of seven people, including actress Sharon Tate. Idi Amin seized power in Uganda by ousting President Milton Obote (oh-BOH’-tay) in a military coup. • In 1981, the 52 Americans held hostage by Iran for 444 days arrived in the United States. • Today’s Birthdays: Actor Dean Jones is 82. Actress Mia Kirshner is 38. Actress Christine Lakin is 34. Rhythm-and-blues singer Alicia Keys is 32.

Troops: Women should meet same standards as men SAN DIEGO (AP) — During her time in Iraq, Alma Felix would see her fellow female soldiers leave the Army installations where she worked at a desk job and head into combat with their male counterparts. But many returned home feeling that few knew of their contributions. “I guess we do disappear into the background,” the 27-year-old former Army specialist said. “You always hear we’re losing our sons out there. And although women have fallen out there, you really don’t see very much of it.” Now, with the Pentagon ending its ban on women in combat, Felix and other female troops hope the military’s plan to open hundreds of thousands of combat jobs to them will lead society to recognize that they, too, can be courageous warriors. “We are the support. Those are the positions we fill and that’s a big deal we often run the show but people don’t see that,” she said. “Maybe it will put more females forward and give people a sense there are women out there fighting for our country. “It’s not just you’re typical poster boy, GI Joes doing it,” she said. Thursday’s announcement promises to change the image of battlefields around the world, as debate


In a May 9, 2012 file photo, Capt. Sara Rodriguez, 26, of the 101st Airborne Division, carries a litter of sandbags during the Expert Field Medical Badge training at Fort Campbell, Ky. rages on whether women can fight like men. What’s clear is that the move will pave the way for women to earn higher pay and earn better promotions. The shift is the military’s biggest since the policy banning openly gay service members was lifted in 2011. And as was the case with “don’t ask, don’t tell,” troops were expected to fall in line with the new rules. The change overturns a 1994 rule prohibiting women from being assigned to smaller ground combat units, and is expected to open up more than 230,000 combat positions that have been off limits to women. “We owe it to them to allow them to pursue every avenue of military service for which they are fully pre-

pared and qualified,” said Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. He said women have shown they are willing to fight and die alongside their male counterparts. Across the country, members of the military of both sexes said they accepted the policy so long as women will have to meet the same standards as their male colleagues. Both men and women were skeptical about putting females in infantry units, however. “This gives us more people to work with,” said Army Sgt. Jeremy Grayson, assigned to field infantry at Fort Bliss, Texas. “But they would have to be able to do the physical stuff that men do. … They have to be able to pull their own weight.”

Panetta said the qualifications will not be lowered and acknowledged that not all women will meet them. He said allowing women to serve in combat roles will strengthen the ability of the U.S. to win wars. It will be up to the military service chiefs to recommend whether women should be excluded from more demanding and deadly positions, such as Navy SEALs or the Army’s Delta Force. Veterans and some in the military argue the public may not be ready to handle seeing more female troops come home in body bags or with lost limbs. “It’s harder to see a mother or a daughter dead. We (men) are seen as protectors,” said Army Staff Sgt. Anthony Lemaitre. Army Spc. Jean Sardonas, who works as a lab technician at a hospital, said she understood Lemaitre’s opinion. Sardonas said she had thought about joining an Army team that conducts social work in the field and faces combat situations. But she’s since become a mother, changing her perspective, and said women tend to be more emotional. “If you see the enemy, well, that’s the enemy, but now if you see a kid with a gun you’re going to think twice,” she said. At McP’s Irish Pub near

the Navy SEALs base in Coronado, battle-hardened veterans chuckled and sighed at the news. There were no celebrations planned yet at the dark bar decorated with combat memorabilia, a framed article announcing the death of Osama bin Laden and a bronze plaque quoting W.C. Fields saying: “Marry an outdoors woman, then if you throw her out into the yard for the night, she can still survive.” “I think our culture instinctively teaches us to take care of women and we won’t be combat ready,” said the pub’s owner and a former Navy SEAL, Greg McPartlin, who is a Bronze Star recipient. “We’re more interested in protecting her than shooting the bad guy.” Felix bristles at that kind of thinking but has heard that from young male soldiers. “It’s hard to see any comrade fall, whether it’s a woman or a man,” she said. Women comprise about 14 percent of 1.4 million active military personnel. More than 280,000 women have been sent to Iraq, Afghanistan or to jobs in neighboring nations in support of the wars. And of the more than 6,600 U.S. service members who have been killed, 152 have been women. The New York veteran who started the nation’s first Veteran of Foreign

Wars post for women welcomes them in elite forces. But making allowances for women would be “a detriment to the team,” said Marlene Roll, who served with an Army Reserve medical unit during the first Gulf War. “If she can make it through the course and she can graduate, hell yeah.” Linda L. Bray was just glad to see the Pentagon finally laud women’s bravery. Bray said her male superiors were incredulous upon hearing that she had led dozens of male military police officers through a three-hour firefight during the 1989 invasion of Panama. Instead of being lauded for her heroism, she said, higher-ranking officers accused her of embellishing accounts of what happened. Congress debated fiercely over whether she and other women had any business being on the battlefield. “I think it’s absolutely wonderful that our nation’s military is taking steps to help women break the glass ceiling,” said Bray, of Clemmons, N.C. “I hope the women who attempt to take on these challenges in the military don’t do it because now it’s OK for them to do it,” she said. “I hope they do it because they really want to make a go of being a man’s partner in going to war.”

Sandy blow to NJ: costly work or costlier premiums SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. (AP) — Superstorm Sandy landed one final stunning blow to New Jersey on Thursday as the state adopted rebuilding guidelines that come with sticker shock. They will force homeowners in flood zones to spend tens of thousands of dollars to raise their houses now or pay exorbitant premiums of up to $31,000 a year for flood insurance later. Gov. Chris Christie said he adopted flood maps issued late last year by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as New Jersey’s standard for rebuilding from the worst storm in its history. The superstorm destroyed more than 30,000 homes, caused

$37 billion in damage and is still keeping 41,000 people out of their damaged homes. He also said there are “very few places” where New Jerseyans won’t be able to rebuild if the higher buildings standards are used. Christie, a Republican running for re-election this November and a strong early contender for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, stressed that the guidelines don’t force anyone to raise their homes. But he laid out a stark choice: do the elevations called for under the FEMA maps or pay through the nose for flood insurance each year. “If you choose not to, you’ll have substantially higher flood insurance costs,

which could be … seven or eight times what you pay now,” he said at a news conference in Seaside Heights, where the storm wrecked the boardwalk and pitched a roller coaster into the ocean in one of Sandy’s defining images. “There’s going to have to be some hard decisions made,” Christie said. “But for the shore as a whole, I think that’s the right decision to make.” The new rules took effect immediately. Three months after Sandy hit, many homeowners are still dazed, trying to navigate a maddening maze of insurance companies, government regulations and their own dwindling finances. Most say they have

been unable to make crucial decisions on whether and how to rebuild until clear rules were set telling them how high they had to go. While several expressed gratitude for a clearer road map for the future, the expenses involved staggered some. Linda Stefanik of Seaside Park is wrestling with whether to raise her business and a house she owns with her sister. “It’s a lot to take in,” she said. “It’s going to average between $30,000 and $60,000 for everyone who’s going to do it. Seaside Park is not all rich people. If they can’t get some grants, I don’t know if a lot of them will be able to do it.”

Troy Christian travels to Xenia Christian Monday.

“We now get ready to finish out the regular season against five good quality teams,” Steineman said. “We want to get ready for the postseason tournament.” Troy Christian — 37 Campbell 3-0-6, Haddad 4-0-8, Demmitt 3-1-7, Lybarger 2-0-4, Slone 30-6, Poteet 1-0-2, Benjamin 1-1-4.

Reds invite prospect Hamilton to spring training CINCINNATI (AP) — Billy Hamilton is ready to show the major leagues that he can steal a base anywhere. The Reds have invited the 22-year-old outfielder with freakish speed to spring training, giving him a chance to see firsthand what it’s like to take off running with a major league pitcher and catcher trying to keep him from taking the next base. Hamilton set a professional record with 155 steals last season, which he split between Single-A and Double-A.

Hamilton seems to run as fast during the 90-foot dash from base to base only an optical illusion, of course. However, he has already received national attention for circling the bases in a mere 13.8 seconds during an inside-the-park homer in the minors the video quickly became a hit on YouTube. At that speed, he compares favorably to some of the fastest players in the majors. The Reds’ challenge is getting him ready to run the bases in the big leagues. They’ve moved him from shortstop to center field youngster Zack Cozart has shortstop locked up for the foreseeable future. They

traded center fielder Drew Stubbs to the Indians in the offseason and received 30year-old outfielder Shin-Soo Choo, who will play center and bat leadoff this season, his last under contract. The way is clear for Hamilton to take over the spot either late this season or in 2014, depending upon how quickly he develops at Triple-A. The Reds sent him to the Arizona Fall League after last season to continue his progression. “He’s probably going to end up bunting a lot,” general manager Walt Jocketty said on Thursday. “With his speed, we saw him get a lot of hits that way in the fall league. Bunting and run-

ning are his two key tools.” Hamilton’s speed brought him a major career choice in high school at Taylorsville, Miss. He was offered a football scholarship to Mississippi State he played receiver and returned punts but decided to pursue baseball in part because his mother, Polly, thought it better suited his 6-foot-tall, 160-pound frame. “It was a real tough decision,” Hamilton said. “I sat down with my family. My mom didn’t want me to get hit so much. She liked me taking the baseball route. I’m glad I took that route. It’s working out good for me.”

She may have been the only one trying to ignore it. The 19-year-old American had just saved five match points and broken Azarenka. But she knew she had to hold serve to stay in her first Grand Slam semifinal whenever Azarenka the No. 1 player and defending Australian Open champion returned to Rod Laver Arena. The restless murmuring in the crowd gave way to slow claps. Why had Azarenka chosen that very moment for a medical break? Azarenka eventually hustled onto the court, and Stephens won only three more points, losing 6-1, 6-4. “I almost did the choke of the year,” Azarenka said in a frank admission during an on-court interview. “At 5-3, having so many chances, I couldn’t close it out.” The crowd that had cheered wildly for Stephens, only 25 hours after she ousted an injured Serena Williams, gave Azarenka tepid applause as she left the court. She’ll face 2011 finalist Li Na in the final Saturday night. Given the support Li enjoyed in her 62, 6-2 win over No. 2-ranked Maria Sharapova, there’s no question which player the crowd will favor in the title match. Azarenka’s immediate post-match remarks suggest she panicked after failing to convert five match points, her forehand misfiring. She had little trouble finishing the match after she came back, and the No. 29-seeded Stephens had cooled off. “I just felt a little bit overwhelmed. I realized I’m one step away from the final and nerves got into me for sure,” Azarenka said. The 23-year-old Belarusian said she was later compelled to explain that she misunderstood the question in the on-court interview, and she wanted to dispel the perception that her medical timeout amounted to little more than gamesmanship. “I understand the point of people maybe not understanding what I said; me not understanding what I’ve been asked,” she said during


Victoria Azarenka receives treatment from a trainer during her semifinal match against Sloane Stephens at the Australian Open in Melbourne, Australia Thursday. an official news conference more than two-thirds devoted to questions on her medical timeout. “So I’m just glad that I’m here, you know, to make everything clear. “You know, I think you cannot really judge by (a) few words. The situation had to be explained.” Medical staff said Azarenka had timeouts for treatment of left knee and rib injuries. The rib needed to be manipulated because it was affecting her breathing. Tournament director Craig Tiley said Azarenka hadn’t broken any rules. Azarenka hadn’t helped herself in a second television interview after the match when she said she couldn’t breathe. “I had chest pains,” she said. “It was like I was getting a heart attack.” She tried to allay any negative perception with her explanation that the choking was related to shortness of breath from the rib injury, not her faltering game.

“When you cannot breathe you start to panic,” she said. “I was really panicking, not because I couldn’t convert my match point. That’s not the case. I mean, I’m experienced enough to go over those emotions. But when you cannot breathe, when something’s really blocking you, the stress that was the stress I was talking about. “What I said that I was stressed out and choked was not because I couldn’t finish my shot. It was just so stressing me out the pain that I had that, maybe it was overreaction, but I just really couldn’t breathe.” Azarenka had retired during previous Grand Slam matches, including a fourth-round match against Serena Williams at the 2009 Australian Open. But with a second major title so close, and the fact she needed to reach the final to retain the No. 1 ranking, she desperately didn’t want to quit this time. For her part, Stephens

seemed sympathetic. She had to wait through a medical timeout Wednesday when Williams received treatment for a sore back the 15-time major winner injured herself after leading by a set and a break. Another rival earlier in the tournament took a long break between sets for other reasons. “I mean, when you take a medical break or timeout, obviously it’s for a reason,” she said. “I mean, just another something else that happens. If it was one of my friends, I would say, ‘Oh, my God, that sounds like a PP, which is a personal problem. Other than that, it’s just unfortunate.” Besides, Stephens said, it didn’t affect the outcome of the match. “No, not at all. She played obviously a really good match,” she said. “First set she played awesome; got close in the second. It didn’t go my way, but I wouldn’t say at all what happened affected the match.”

Pro Bowlers practice amidst troops PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (AP) — Thousands of military service members and their families crowded a small field at Pearl Harbor to catch a glimpse of their favorite NFL stars as they practiced in the rain in preparation for Sunday’s Pro Bowl. Downpours didn’t stop kids and adults Thursday from shouting toward their favorite stars like Arizona wide receiver Larry

Fitzgerald and Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson as they did light drills, then signed autographs. New Orleans punter Thomas Morstead toyed with fans as he punted balls from one sideline toward fans behind a barrier on the other side of the field each ball stopping well short of the crowd. The practice at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam was held at a field named

for famed aviator Amelia Earhart, near three large military transport planes. The practice served as a reminder of why the Pro Bowl is important to keep around, Fitzgerald said. “It’s an honor to be out here and to be able to meet all the servicemen and women it makes it special,” Fitzgerald said. “It’s important that we come out and play well this year. We want to continue to have the Pro Bowl game and

obviously want to keep it here.” Earlier Thursday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell reiterated at a preview event for the 2014 Super Bowl that the Pro Bowl is in danger of going away. “This is something we’ve got to deal with,” Goodell said. “And if we can’t improve on the quality of the game, it’s something we’re not going to do in the future.”

NEW YORK (AP) — The person Manti Te’o says was pretending to be his online girlfriend told the Notre Dame linebacker “I love you” in voicemails that were played during his interview with Katie Couric. Taped earlier this week and broadcast Thursday, the hour-long talk show featured three voicemails that Te’o claims were left for him last year. Te’o said they were from the person he believed to be Lennay Kekua, a woman he had fallen for online but never met face-to-face. After the first message was played, Te’o said: “It sounds like a girl, doesn’t it?” “It does,” Couric responded. The interview was the AllAmerican’s first on camera since his tale of inspired play after the deaths TE’O of his grandmother and girlfriend on the same day in September unraveled as a bizarre hoax in an expose by on Jan. 16. Te’o’s parents appeared with him for part of the interview and backed up his claim that he wasn’t involved in the fabrication, saying they, too, had spoken on the phone with a person they believed to be Kekua. Couric addressed speculation that the tale was concocted by Te’o as a way to cover up his sexual orientation. Asked if he were gay, Te’o said “no” with a laugh. “Far from it. Faaaar from that.” He also said he was “scared” and “didn’t know what to do” after receiving a call on Dec. 6 two days before the Heisman Trophy presentation from a person who claimed to

be his “dead” girlfriend. The first voicemail, he said, was from what was supposed to be Kekua’s first day of chemotherapy for leukemia. “Hi, I am just letting you know I got here and I’m getting ready for my first session and, um, just want to call you to keep you posted. I miss you. I love you. Bye,” the person said. In the second voicemail, the person was apparently upset by someone else answering Te’o’s phone. The third voicemail was left on Sept. 11, Te’o says, the day he believed Kekua was released from the hospital and the day before she “died.” “Hey babe, I’m just calling to say goodnight,” the person on the voicemail said. “I love you. I know that you’re probably doing homework or you’re with the boys. … But I just wanted to say I love you and goodnight and I’ll be ok tonight. I’ll do my best. Um, yeah, so get your rest and I’ll talk to you tomorrow. I love you so much, hon. Sweet dreams.” Couric suggested he person who left those messages might have been Ronaiah Tuisasosopo, a 22-year-old man from California, who Te’o said has apologized to him for pulling the hoax. “Do you think that could have been a man on the other end of the phone?” she asked. “Well, it didn’t sound like a man,” Te’o said. “It sounded like a woman. If he somehow made that voice, that’s incredible. That’s an incredible talent to do that. Especially every single day.”

Ben-Gal’s libel case goes to jury COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) — The attorney for a former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader who had sex with her underage student told jurors Thursday that they can send a message by finding that a gossip website defamed her in lewd online posts that were anonymously submitted. Defense attorneys, meanwhile, argued that the posts didn’t amount to defamation and contained some truth because of the plaintiff’s character. In his closing argument in a northern Kentucky courtroom, attorney Eric Deters told jurors that they must find that Scottsdale, Ariz.-based and its operator, Hooman Karamian, defamed former cheerleader Sarah Jones with posts that said she had sex with every Bengals player and suggested she

had two sexually transmitted diseases. She is asking for $11 million. “You can do something big today,” Deters said. “You can send a message across America: We’re going to stop libel and slander on the Internet. This is a oncein-a-lifetime opportunity.” He added that awarding Jones millions of dollars would effectively shut down the website. “Cause them pain,” he said. “Sock it to them.” Jones is a 27-year-old former high school teacher who pleaded guilty to having sex with her 17-yearold former student. Her lawsuit stems from two posts on in 2009 that were unrelated to her relationship with the teen. The jury could reach a verdict as soon as Thursday afternoon.

Roundup ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Milton made big plays and clutch free throws down the stretch to come away with a 54-39 win against Northridge Thursday in Dayton. “We were only up three going into the fourth, but we put it together and outscored them 19-7 in that span,” Milton-Union coach Richard Cline said. “Even the kids that didn’t score came up big for us. Elizabeth Busse stepped in and finished out the fourth. She did some positive things for us. I thought the last three minutes, with the exception of taking an illadvised shot, we really did a good job of milking the clock, keeping our dribble alive and making free throws.” The Bulldogs finished the game 14 for 17 at the line.

Miami East’s Abby Cash puts up a shot Thursday against National Trail. ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 quarter, and we just looked sluggish. “In the first half they were limiting our possessions. In the second half we got more possessions, not necessarily by turning up the heat, but by doing a better job of all five defensively rebounding and getting a nice outlet and getting up the floor.” The Vikings held a 9-6 lead midway through the first quarter but surged to a 17-6 lead by the end, closing on an 8-0 run. Madison Linn scored seven of her 12 points in the opening quarter. Then in the second, the Vikings forced seven turnovers and maintained their 11point lead going into halftime. But Miami East (16-1, 10-0) set the tempo in the second half after National Trail (10-8, 8-3) was able to slow the game down in the first. The Vikings ran every time they got a rebound, resulting in eight easy points in transition. Miami East opened the quarter on a 13-0 run before Trail’s Andrea Hunt made her only field goal of the game with 2:05 left in the frame. The damage had already

Ashley Current scored six of her game-high 14 points in the final quarter, while Leah Dunivan finished the game with 13. Angie Mack had nine points and Abby Cash added seven in the win. “It was a very, very sluggish type of game,” Elifritz said. “Our girls are disappointed. They are not saying whole a lot in the locker room — and we win

by 26. So it’s a good thing to have, girls with that type of mentality, but at the same time, they know maybe in the second half some of the shots should have fallen. “At the same time, we fought through that and were able to put up some points pretty quickly.” The Vikings will go for their ninth win in a row Monday at Wayne.

No. 2 Michigan rolls Purdue ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Tim Hardaway Jr. can’t help but notice Michigan’s place in the latest national ranking. With a win this weekend, the Wolverines could take over the No. 1 spot in the AP poll for the first time since the Fab Five era. “We would be lying to you if we didn’t have that in our mind, but we really are trying to do a great job of just trying to get better as a team each and every day,” Hardaway said. On Thursday night, that meant being more aggressive on defense, especially during the second half of a 68-53 win over Purdue. Trey Burke had 15 points and eight assists and Hardaway added 13 points. The second-ranked Wolverines shut down the Boilermakers after Purdue had made seven 3-pointers in the first half. Michigan has a chance to move to No. 1 in the next poll if it can win at Illinois on Sunday. Duke, the current top-ranked team, lost Wednesday. The Wolverines (18-1, 51 Big Ten) trailed by seven in the first half, but Purdue (10-9, 3-3) couldn’t keep up its torrid outside shooting. The Boilermakers turned the ball over 12 times. “We’re a very low-steal team,” Michigan coach


Purdue guard Anthony Johnson, right, falls after Michigan forward Mitch McGary (4) blocks his shot during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game Thursday in Ann Arbor, Mich. John Beilein said. “It’s not a strength. We’re trying to, at different times, pick your spots.” Michigan took control with a 14-2 run in the second half. The Wolverines have won 28 of their last 29 home games the only loss was to Purdue last February. Terone Johnson scored 14 points for the Boilermakers.

Michigan trailed 33-32 at halftime after the Boilermakers shot 7 of 13 from 3-point range. Purdue then missed all nine of its attempts from long distance in the second half. Glenn Robinson III the son of the former Purdue star with the same name made a 3-pointer to put the Wolverines ahead 4240 and start Michigan’s

decisive run. Richmond 86, No. 19 VCU 74 RICHMOND, Va. — Kendall Anthony scored 21 of his 26 points after halftime and Darien Brothers hit two huge 3-pointers as Richmond needed overtime to end No. 19 VCU’s 13-game winning streak. Brothers had 18 points and Cedrick Lindsay 13 as the Spiders (13-7, 3-2 Atlantic 10) won for only the second time in their last nine meetings with the Rams. Richmond hit 12 3-pointers with Anthony making five and Brothers four, including one with 1.5 seconds left in regulation to force the overtime, and another to clinch it with 1:35 to play in OT. Juvonte Reddic had 20 points and 10 rebounds and Treveon Graham had 15 points, all after halftime, and 10 rebounds for VCU (16-4, 4-1), which never got its ball-hawking havoc defense unleashed against the steady Spiders. Both teams finished with 13 turnovers and scored 17 off their takeaways. No. 23 Mississipi 62, Tennesee 56 OXFORD, Miss. — Marshall Henderson scored 28 points, hitting six 3-pointers in the second half, and No. 23 Mississippi rallied for a victory over Tennessee.

Choi, Snedeker tied for lead at Torrey Pines SAN DIEGO (AP) — One week after he began his year by missing the cut, Tiger Woods didn’t notice a big difference in his game. It was everything else about the opening round at Torrey Pines that changed. Relatively calm conditions. Rough that didn’t cover the top of his shoes. A course

that has been good to him since he was a teenager. And despite his putter not cooperating at the end of his round, a 4-under 68 on his scorecard. Woods was on the verge of joining defending champion Brandt Snedeker and K.J. Choi atop the leaderboard Thursday in the

Farmers Insurance Open until missing three straight putts inside 12 feet late in his round. Snedeker was bogey-free on the North Course for a 65. Choi birdied three of his last four holes on the tougher South Course for his 65. Woods, a seven-time

champion at Torrey Pines, at least got off the South Course without further damage when he had to lay up on the par-5 18th hole, hit wedge over the green and into a bunker and made a 6-foot putt for par. “Last week’s conditions were a lot more difficult and the fairways were nar-

row and the wind was howling,” Woods said. “I felt like I was doing a lot of good things right last week unfortunately, only for a few days, but I doing a lot of good things right. And I came out here today and basically did the same thing.” Woods three-putted for

double bogey on the fourth hole, though he knew he had a pair of par 5s to make up ground. He did that, and more. He made a 12-footer for birdie, an eagle by holing a bunker shot on the par-5 sixth, and birdie putts on the eighth and ninth holes to get back into the game.
