‘It was the right thing to do’ County employees get 2% pay hike BY WILL E SANDERS Ohio Community Media

Readers weigh in for poll


Some employees with one of the county’s largest employers learned this week they would be receiving a 2 percent raise, retroactive to Jan. 7.

By unanimous vote, Miami County Commissioners authorized a pair of resolutions Thursday that will give 168 county employees the raises, which in total amount to $122,695 in the county’s general

fund, according to the commission’s and auditor’s offices. Commissioner Richard Cultice said the county employees deserved the raises for their hard work during an especially difficult time. Cultice said many county employees continued to do more

and more and that, mixed with having to pay more for healthcare costs, made them more than deserving of the raises. “We just felt like it was the right thing to do,” Cultice said. County employees that qualify were given 2 percent raises in June, but the last increase before that took place Dec. 15, 2007,

Healing economy

The results are in — the unofficial ones, anyway. While the big election still is 10 months away, the readers have spoken in the annual AllMiami County Readers Poll for 2012. And if your votes are to be believed, President Barack Obama has a lot of work to do between now and November. Coming Sunday, in the Miami Valley Sunday News.

Miami East High School senior Josh Furrow discusses the details of creating a picnic shelter, which was an Eagle Scout project.

Scout raises the roof East senior builds picnic shelter to attain Eagle rank Cruise victims mull deal


How much is it worth to suffer through a terrifying cruise ship grounding? Italian ship operator Costa Crociere SpA on Friday put the figure at $14,460 plus reimbursement for the cost of cruise tickets and extra travel expenses, seeking to cut a deal with as many passengers as possible to take the wind out of class-action lawsuits. See Page 4.

Once an Eagle, always an Eagle — which was the motivation that kept Miami East High School senior Josh Furrow pushing through the hard time to accomplish his goal of attaining the Boy Scouts of America’s high honor of Eagle Scout. “I knew it was something that could never be taken away from me,” Furrow said about the Boy Scouts’ highest rank. “You can be the captain of the high school football team for four years, but once you are an Eagle Scout, you are one forever.” Furrow, 18, of Casstown, completed his Eagle Scout project by building a picnic shelter at Miami East

CASSTOWN Elementary School in the wooded grove near the baseball and softball fields. “I know it’s going to be here for a long time,” Furrow said. “I know people are going to use it and enjoy it here in the community where I grew up.” Furrow used the existing foundation of an old maintenance barn to build the 22by-22-foot shelter, compete with Viking blue metal siding. “It had to be Viking blue, of course,” Furrow said with a smile. “I thought with the new baseball fields, it’d be a nice place to have a shelter.“ The 16-foot-tall shelter adds to the park-like atmosphere in the grove. The shelter joins several park bench-

es for families and visitors to enjoy in the wooded grove area — the site of another Eagle Scout project by Miami East graduate Logan Pyers. “Logan cleared the path and wooded area and I just added on to it,” Furrow said of the site. Furrow said the large project was a team effort with help from his troop, family and the school district. “I can’t tell you how many times I pounded my head against one of these poles to get it done,” Furrow said. “We were out here for five or six weekends trying to get it done and I just want to thank everybody who helped me see it through.” Furrow completed the project last November and will receive his official

Eagle Scout honors in March. Furrow plans to attend the University of Northwestern Ohio to major in diesel technology. “I plan on enjoying the rest of my senior year and help the troop when I can,” Furrow said. Furrow also is a power technology student at the Miami Valley Career Center. He is a 10-year member of 4-H and is a member of the Miami Valley CTC’s FFA chapter. Eagle Scout requirements include earning at least 21 merit badges and demonstrating Scout Spirit through the Boy Scout Oath and Law, service and leadership. The Eagle Scout honor includes an extensive service project that the Scout plans, organizes, leads and manages.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The American economy may not be truly healthy yet, but it’s healing. The 2.8 percent annual growth rate reported Friday for the fourth quarter was the fastest since spring 2010 and was the third straight quarter that growth has accelerated. Experts cautioned, however, that the pace was unlikely to last and that it’s not enough to sharply drive down the unemployment rate. Unemployment stands at 8.5 percent, its lowest level in nearly three years after a sixth straight month of solid hiring. And Friday’s Commerce Department report suggests more hiring gains ahead. For the final three months of 2011, Americans spent more on vehicles, and companies restocked their supplies at a robust pace. Still, overall growth last quarter and for all of last year was slowed by the sharpest cuts in annual government spending in four decades. And many people are reluctant to spend more or buy homes, and many employers remain hesitant to hire, even though job growth has strengthened. The outlook for 2012 is slightly better. The Federal Reserve has estimated economic growth of roughly 2.5 percent for the year, despite abundant risk factors: federal spending cuts, weak pay increases, cautious consumers and the risk of a European recession. Economists noted that most of the growth in the

— Staff and wire reports

according to figures released by the commissioner’s office. According to a press release issued by the commissioners, county employees have taken salary reductions, hour reductions and furlough days for the last four years in order to keep the county “financially stable during this very slow economic recovery.” The raises included individuals for all wagerelated accounts and excludes employees who are already under collective bargaining agreements, like sheriff ’s deputies and corrections officers. Those entities last approved their collective bargaining agreements last year and they run through the end of 2013. Commissioners said

that while sales tax figures have been revealing substantial growth, they also are anticipating a reduction in revenue in the local government fund, personal property tax reimbursement and “a continued decline in interest income revenue.” County commissioners finished 2011 in the black and have cut $4 million out of the budget since 2009. In late December, they approved an optimistic 2012 budget in the amount of $25.48 million — an increase of about $1.4 million. Revenues are projected for this year at an estimated $21.72 million. The 2012 appropriations for all funds, including the general fund, were set at $91.58 million with projected revenues anticipated to top $81.73 million last month.

Economy • Continued from 1 October-December quarter was due to companies restocking their supplies at the fastest rate in nearly two years. That pace is expected to slow. “The pickup in growth doesn’t look half as good when you realize that most of it was due to inventory accumulation,” said Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics. Ashworth expects annualized growth to slip below 2 percent in the current January-March quarter. Other economists have similar estimates.

ures. The Dow Jones industrial average closed down about 74 points. Broader indexes were mixed. In a normal economy, roughly 3 percent growth is a healthy figure. It’s enough to keep unemployment down but not so much growth as to ignite inflation. But coming out of a recession, much stronger growth is needed. By some estimates, the economy would have to expand at least 5 percent for a full year to drive down the unemployment rate by 1 percentage point. In many ways, the economy did end 2011 on a strong note. Companies invested more in equipment and machinery in December. People are buying more cars, and consumer confidence has risen. Even the depressed housing market has shown enough incremental gains to lead some economists to detect the start of a turnaround. 2244876

Twitter’s new censorship plan rouses global furor NEW YORK (AP) — Twitter, a tool of choice for dissidents and activists around the world, found itself the target of global outrage Friday after unveiling plans to allow country-specific censorship of tweets that might break local laws. It was a stunning role reversal for a youthful company that prides itself in promoting unfettered expression, 140 characters at a time. Twitter insisted its commitment to free speech remains firm, and sought to explain the nuances of its policy, while critics in a barrage of tweets proposed a Twitter boycott and demanded that the censorship initiative be scrapped. “This is very bad news,” tweeted Egyptian activist Mahmoud Salem, who operates under the name Sandmonkey. Later, he wrote, “Is it safe to say that (hash)Twitter is selling us out?” In China, where

activists have embraced Twitter even though it’s blocked inside the country, artist and activist Ai Weiwei tweeted in response to the news: “If Twitter censors, I’ll stop tweeting.” One often-relayed tweet bore the headline of a Forbes magazine technology blog item: “Twitter Commits Social Suicide” San Francisco-based Twitter, founded in 2006, depicted the new system as a step forward. Previously, when Twitter erased a tweet, it vanished throughout the world. Under the new policy, a tweet breaking a law in one country can be taken down there and still be seen elsewhere. Twitter said it will post a censorship notice whenever a tweet is removed and will post the removal requests it receives from governments, companies and individuals at the website The critics are jumping to the wrong conclusions, said Alexander Mac-

gilliviray, Twitter’s general counsel. “This is a good thing for freedom of expression, transparency and accountability,” he said. “This launch is about us keeping content up whenever we can and to be extremely transparent with the world when we don’t. I would hope people realize our philosophy hasn’t changed.” Some defenders of Internet free expression came to Twitter’s defense. “Twitter is being pilloried for being honest about something that all Internet platforms have to wrestle with,” said Cindy Cohn, legal director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. “As long as this censorship happens in a secret way, we’re all losers.” Department State spokeswoman Victoria Nuland credited Twitter with being upfront about the potential for censorship and said some other companies are not as forthright.

Chicago’s Hull House closes doors CHICAGO (AP) — Hull House, the Chicago social services organization founded more than 120 years ago by the Nobel Peace Prize winner Jane Addams, closed Friday after running out of money. The agency said the poor economy resulted in more demand for its services but also made it harder to raise money to cover its costs. Hull House has been providing child care, job training, housing assistance and other services for 60,000 people a year in the Chicago area. The agency had announced plans to close in the spring, but Friday’s shutdown was unexpected, striking some 300 employ-

ees with a devastating and unexpected blow. They received layoff notices and final paychecks and then spent the day packing their belongings and saying tearful good-byes. Many said they were startled to learn their insurance ended almost two weeks ago. “It’s been my life,” said Dianne Turner, who spent 25 years teaching families in Chicago housing projects how to break the cycle of poverty. “It wasn’t about the pay. It was about seeing a family go from feeling hopeless to being hopeful and feeling like they can do things.” Turner said she knows what it’s like to live in the projects and dream of some-

thing better. She got her first job as a teenager through Hull House and said the organization helped teach her the value of education, how to save money and how to be a leader. Founded in 1889, Hull House was the best known of the 400 settlement houses in the United States in the early 1900s. The settlements were designed to provide services to immigrants and the poor while uplifting them through culture, education and recreation. At its peak, Hull House served more than 9,000 people a week, offering medical help, an art gallery, citizenship classes, a gardening club and a gym with sports programs.

Bethel Twp. trustees recognize firefighters in the community for 15 years. Other members of the fire department who have served for 15 years are Capt. Terry Weldon and Assistant Chief Josh Schiebrel. The longest-serving member, though, is Robert Yocum, who has served for 27 years as a firefighter. He was recognized for 25 years of service on Tuesday. Township administrator Mike Gebhart said, “Robert should have been recognized two years ago for his 25 years.” Also on Tuesday, the trustees approved to enter into an agreement for an external employee assis-

tance program. Upper Valley Medical Center will provide the care to local employees. It was approved, with a cost not to exceed $1,320. Gebhart confirmed there was enough interest to justify the cost of continuing the program. “It provides our employees with counseling assistance if they need it. Examples of what it might be used for might include counseling in their personal lives or it could be for stress debriefing if our firefighters were involved in a traumatic accident or fire,” he said. The trustees also approved a $16,980 expenditure for renewal with the Ohio Township Risk Management Authority.

Cruise ship victims mull $14,460 deal ROME (AP) — How much is it worth to suffer through a terrifying cruise ship grounding? Italian ship operator Costa Crociere SpA on Friday put the figure at €11,000 ($14,460) plus reimbursement for the cost of cruise tickets and extra travel expenses, seeking to cut a deal with as many passengers as possible to take the wind out of class-action lawsuits stemming from the Jan. 13 grounding of its Costa Concordia cruise liner off Tuscany. But many passengers are refusing to accept the deal, saying they can’t yet put a

figure on the costs of the trauma they endured. And lawyers are backing them up, telling passengers it’s far too soon to know how people’s lives and livelihoods might be affected by the experience. “We’re very worried about the children,” said Claudia Urru of Cagliari, Sardinia, who was on the Concordia with her husband and two sons, aged three and 12, when it capsized. Her elder son is seeing a psychiatrist: He won’t speak about the incident or even look at television footage of the grounding. “He’s terrorized at night,”

baggage and psychological trauma, was the result of negotiations with several consumer groups who say they are representing 3,206 passengers from 61 countries who suffered no physical harm when the massive cruise ship hit a reef off the island of Giglio. It’s not clear, though, how many of those passengers will take the deal, even though they’re guaranteed payment within a week of signing on. In addition to the lumpsum indemnity, Costa, a unit of the world’s biggest cruise operator, Miami-based Carnival Corp., said it would reimburse uninjured passengers the full costs of their cruise, their return travel expenses and any medical expenses they sustained after the grounding. Costa said the figure is higher than current indemnification limits provided for by law, and added that it wouldn’t deduct anything that insurance companies might kick in.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — President Barack Obama called Friday for an overhaul of the higher education financial aid system, warning that colleges and universities that fail to control spiraling tuition costs could lose federal funds. The election year proposal was also a political appeal to young people and working families, two important voting blocs for Obama. But the initiative faces long odds in Congress, which must approve nearly all aspects of the president’s plan. Speaking to students at the University of Michigan, Obama OBAMA said he was “putting colleges on notice” that the era of unabated tuition hikes is over. “You can’t assume that you’ll just jack up tuition every single year. If you can’t stop tuition from going up, then the funding you get from taxpayers each year will go down,” Obama said on the final stop of a three-day post-State of the Union trip to promote components of his economic agenda. Obama told the largely supportive student audience that the nation’s economic future depended on making sure every American can afford a world-class education.

“In the coming decade, 60 percent of new jobs will require more than a high school diploma,” he said. “Higher education is not a luxury. It’s an economic imperative that every family in America should be able to afford.” The president first announced the outlines of the financial aid proposal during Tuesday’s State of the Union address. His plan targets what is known as “campus based” aid given to colleges to distribute in areas such as Perkins loans or in work study Of programs. the $142 billion in federal grants and loans distributed in the last school year, about $3 billion went to these programs. His plan calls for increasing that type of aid to $10 billion annually. He also wants to create a “Race to the Top” competition in higher education similar to the one his administration used on K12 to encourage states to better use higher education dollars in exchange for $1 billion in prize dollars. A second competition called “First in the World” would encourage innovation to boost productivity on campuses. Obama is also pushing for the creation of new tools to allow students to determine which colleges and universities have the best value. Some in the higher education community are nervous that the Obama administration could be setting a new precedent in the federal government’s role in controlling the rising costs of college. Following the speech, Molly Corbett Broad, president of the American Council on Education, issued a statement saying there’s concern that the proposal would “move decision-making in higher education from college campuses to Washington, D.C.” Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., a former education secretary, said the autonomy of U.S. higher education is what makes it the best in the world, and he’s questioned whether Obama can enforce any plan that shifts federal aid away from colleges and universities without hurting students. “It’s hard to do without hurting students, and it’s not appropriate to do,” Alexander said.

Question: Have you been watching the GOP presidential candidate debates?

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

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


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


Romney is fiery in Florida debate ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Mitt Romney, forced to prove his resilience after a stinging loss in South Carolina, is showing why the so-called Republican establishment thinks he has the best discipline, organization and campaign smarts to challenge President Barack Obama this fall. The former Massachusetts governor turned in his best debate performance yet Thursday night, putting chief rival Newt Gingrich on the defensive from the opening minutes in Jacksonville, Fla., and never letting up for two hours. It was a striking change after two South Carolina debates in which Gingrich revived his own campaign with fiery populist and media-bashing zingers that made Romney appear pallid in comparison. Romney hired a new debate coach after those events. He was considerably more aggressive in a debate Monday in Tampa. Then on Thursday, he urged his supporters to pack the hall in Jacksonville for the debate aired by CNN. As soon as it started, he appeared more prepared, polished and focused than Gingrich, who curiously dropped the fire-breathing aggressiveness he had shown only hours earlier at a morning tea party rally. In contrast to the rousing ovations that Gingrich, the former House speaker, had received in the two South Carolina debates, the Jacksonville audience seemed mostly on Romney’s side. “When I’m shot at, I’ll return fire,” Romney said moments after the debate ended. “I’m certainly no shrinking violet.” Many Republicans expect Tuesday’s Florida primary to be close. And debate performances are only one part of the GOP presidential campaign. It also features millions of dollars in TV, radio and mail ads and heavy coverage of candidates’ events by local news outlets. This cycle’s presidential debates, however, have drawn big audiences and played an unusually large role in shaping the campaign. Gingrich’s feisty performances after his near-fatal finish in Iowa helped put him into strong contention with Romney. Romney’s performance Thursday will doubtlessly reassure many mainstream party members who see Gingrich as too mercurial and burdened by past political battles to make the strongest case against Obama. “Romney took the right lesson from South Carolina: Keep your opponent down, don’t let him back up,” New Hampshire political scientist Dante Scala, who follows the contest closely, said on Twitter before the debate was half over. Former Sen. Rick Santorum and Texas congressman Ron Paul also participated in the forum, although Paul is not actively campaigning in Florida. Santorum scored strong points by noting that both Gingrich and Romney have supported mandatory health insurance for individuals. Santorum says that history weakens the two men’s ability to challenge Obama on mandated health coverage. Santorum is struggling to compete in sprawling, expensive Florida, however, and he planned to return for a while to Pennsylvania on Friday. Romney’s performance in Jacksonville was by no means perfect. He said he didn’t remember a Spanish-language radio ad that his campaign is airing against Gingrich. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer assured him the ad was his, and Gingrich needled him about it. Romney also spent long segments explaining that his millions of dollars in personal wealth are invested by a trustee who keeps the details private to avoid conflicts of interest.

LETTERS The Daily Freeman, Kingston, N.Y., on antipiracy legislation. A week ago, we’d have bet you a weekend at the Mohonk Mountain House that not one in 20 adult Americans could tell you, even vaguely, what SOPA or PIPA are all about. In a nutshell, the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect Intellectual Property Act are anti-piracy bills sought by some of the biggest players in the U.S. entertainment industry. But if you hadn’t heard about SOPA or PIPA, you surely knew that the Internet has made the stealing of intellectual property epidemic. It costs virtually nothing to copy and transmit digitized information and it’s easy. There is no doubting that the

producers of intellectual property have been getting ripped off in this new digital age and many of the perpetrators are offshore, beyond the immediate reach of U.S. law. So the biggest players in the production or marketing of that property decided to protect themselves in a time-honored American way: They sent guys with briefcases and wingtips up to Capitol Hill with a remedy. The result was the anti-piracy legislation, which sought to get at the pirates by giving the owners of intellectual property new weapons against a broad array of targets. We don’t disagree that intellectual property should be respected or that owners of that property should have legal means to protect their inter-

ests. But the proposed remedies were clearly the product of the entertainment industry’s interests, rather than a careful weighing them against what should be the superior free speech interests of all Americans as guaranteed by the First Amendment. The bills would have given the holders of copyrights overly broad power to force Internet providers and other Web-based businesses to stop doing business with alleged violators. Conceivably, the bills could have made citizens “facilitators” of copyright infringement simply by linking to a song or image. In short order, some of the congressional sponsors of SOPA and PIPA promptly abandoned ship, which is now as dead in the water.


Reasons your really need an airport buddy Last week I delighted you with details about yet another first day I’d be experiencing with my new job. (Fingers crossed this is the forreal, last first day I ever have, because I’m starting to feel like I get around a little too much in the professional world). And while I don’t technically start until Monday, my new web editor gig currently has me 30,000 feet in the air conquering another first — my first plane ride, all by myself. Sure, I’ve been on planes before, from short distances like Atlanta to Pensacola, to longer, grueling Atlanta to Honolulu flights. I’ve been on planes with my aunts, cousins and brother, with my husband and daughter (just under a year old at the time) — I’ve even traveled the skies more than once with softball teammates. But I’ve never, ever, ever, been on an airplane by myself. And let me tell you something; it’s seriously exhilarating (and by that I mean over-the-top frightening, paranoia-inducing and wreaking havoc on my already frazzled nerves). Maybe I sound like a big baby — heck, maybe I am. But you are just not an official veteran of the air until you’ve done it alone, and let me tell you, these business people, they’re serious professionals. You can tell within about two seconds whether someone is well-

Amanda Stewart Troy Daily News Columnist versed when it comes to airport etiquette. From their 10-second turnaround time of loading their laptop, electronics, fancy watches, belts and shoes onto the bins that travel down the conveyor belt, I think I apologized to a group of businessmen more than 14 times for how unexplainably slow I was at accomplishing the same task. I figured once I made it through security the hard part would be over. I’d sit in the terminal and await my fate — I mean flight — board it, get a little anxious at take off and then bury myself in some embarrassing woman’s magazine. I was wrong. When you travel alone, there’s no such thing as “just hanging out at a terminal” by yourself — particularly if you’re a woman and alone. Not even two minutes after I sat down, I was bombarded with a group of teenage boys who couldn’t understand why my father would let me travel alone. Because, what,

I look 13? And while I thought flashing my wedding bling would get the point across, it simply invited them into a much more detailed conversation about how could I have possibly married so young and why I “gave up” my freedom. At least I could appreciate their effort to try to appeal to me by making me feel young again — unfortunately it just doesn’t work when the boys are in fact that young themselves. Once the teenage boys graduated to razzing another, possibly-college-aged woman, this opened up the row of chairs on my left to an “incredibly buzzed, jazzed up, little brown” man. I’m not being presumptuous or judgmental here folks, the 50-year-old Hispanic man repeatedly told me how buzzed he was (I haven’t figured out if it was from alcohol or something of the plant variety) and better yet — how happy he was that they were going to let the little brown man on the plane. How do you respond to this? I laughed uncomfortably and avoided eye contact, hoping that would get the point across that I wasn’t buzzed or jazzed up about where that conversation was headed. It didn’t deter him though, hardly anything did. I even attempted to fake a phone call and get up, he simply joined me at my new location when my fake phone call ended. I was relieved of my “enter-

tain the buzzed man” duties when they finally allowed us to board the plane and he was seated (thankfully, several, several rows ahead of me). Once I nestled into my seat (which I thought would be safe due to it being located absolutely no where near my buzzed friend) I attempted to do the headphone, ignore the world, chew my gum tactic. Even my iPod on full blast couldn’t blare out the bubbly girl behind me. She was recently back from her mission trip where she fed cows and chickens and then slaughtered them for the poor people, cleaned drinking water and probably built some huts. While I felt a little safer knowing I had such a saintly college student on board, I found myself making mental notes of how much more I should be doing. “You could give up some of that quality time with your DVR to volunteer, Amanda. The world is about helping people, not terrible teenage dramas.” With one flight under way and one still ahead of me, I can only hope the next provides just as much entertainment. Or, for the sake of my early conference the following morning, a peaceful, buzzed-free environment. Amanda Stewart appears Saturdays in the Troy Daily News. She’ll be remembering the Alamo over the next three days.

Address the issue soon before it gets worse Dear Annie: Six years ago, I married "Richard." He is a wonderful, caring, good-looking man. We returned from our honeymoon to find out he had lost his job. The next three years were a rollercoaster, and he finally found employment 18 months ago. Richard has to travel out of state a great deal. He currently rents a home with four other coworkers. It's about three hours away, and he comes home on the weekends. After work, the guys meet up for dinner and a couple of beers. The only demand I place on Richard is that he call home and check in once he gets settled for the night. I work a long day and have a 10-year-old and three dogs at home. Sometimes, Richard doesn't call. If I don't hear from him by 10 p.m., I phone, but it often takes two hours of trying before he answers. He'll say he was sleeping. When I ask why he didn't call as promised, he claims he was tired. The miles between us take away any control I have to check the possibilities. Richard says I'm overreacting and being childish. I have asked what has him so preoccupied that he neglects to call, but he can't give me an answer. How should I handle this the next time it happens? — Hands Tied in Michigan Dear Michigan: Richard may avoid nightly phone calls because he is "otherwise engaged," but more likely, he is tired and reluctant to deal with what's going on at home. Don't wait until the next time. When Richard comes home for the weekend, schedule a quiet chat. As sweetly as you can manage, tell him that you look forward to his call all day, and when he doesn't phone and you can't reach him, you worry. This makes you stressed, makes him resentful and, over time, will eat away at your marriage. Dear Annie: My 46-year-old brother died recently. Knowing he had very little money other than his life insurance policy, my entire family paid a good amount toward the funeral. Several aunts said they sent large memorial checks but never received any acknowledgement. I sent a generous check to cover the cost of the death notice in the newspaper, as well as other expenses. Today, I got a bill in the mail for the death notice. I will pay it, but thought I would copy the bill and send it to my sister-in-law so she knows. After complaining that she had no money, I saw my sisterin-law buying the kids new toys and clothes. She also bought a new car, although she needed one. None of this would matter if she would take my phone calls, but she won't speak to me directly. She will only text. Am I wrong to expect a thank you? Should our family have been included in reading the cards people sent — especially ones addressed to our entire family? A lot of hurt feelings are accumulating because of my sister-in-law's behavior. — Will Be Grieving a Long Time Dear Grieving: You've been very generous, but your sister-inlaw is probably overwhelmed dealing with her husband's death and the emotional welfare of her children. Why not offer to come over and help her write the thank-you notes? Bring dinner. We think she'd appreciate it. Dear Annie: "California" complained that her husband liked to cook but often ruined her cookware. I'll take him! My husband of 22 years was a cheating alcoholic who rarely made it home to eat dinner with the kids and me. "California" should count her blessings. — I'll Take Your Slob Dear Take: Thanks for your take on the subject. We received a lot of responses to "California" and will be printing more in future columns. Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

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


Don’t forget to change out your toothbrush Dear Readers: How long has it been since you’ve changed your toothbrush? What about if you’ve had a cold or the flu? Should you change it when you feel better? The American Dental Association ( says yes, and here are some other suggestions: • Replace your toothbrush at least every three to four months. If you’ve been ill, the ADA says that would be a good time to change out your toothbrush as well. • Rinse your toothbrush thoroughly with tap water, and let it air-dry after each use. • Don’t store your toothbrush

Hints from Heloise Columnist for a long period wrapped in a sealed container. Sharing toothbrushes with someone else is not a good idea. Duh! Yuck, and double yuck! — Heloise P.S.: When toothbrushes are on sale, buy a couple of extra ones! It’s a cheap investment in good dental health.

PET PAL Dear Readers: Avis in Smithfield, Maine, sent a picture of her light-brown toy poodle, Buffy, with a pacifier in her mouth! Buffy got the idea from Avis’ granddaughter, Alex. When Alex fell one day, Buffy brought her the “binky” to comfort her. Avis says, “Dogs are so smart and loving.” To see Buffy and our other Pet Pals, visit and click on “Pets.” — Heloise PROTECTING PETS Dear Heloise: As a longtime pet rescuer, I’ve become aware that there is an increase in found and lost pets during wintertime. It’s easy for pets to slip

out during these times. After the holidays, I’d like to remind the finders to post notices, check for microchips and look around the area for “lost pet” signs. Many rescue organizations and shelters can tell you about lost-and-found listings on the Internet, and, of course, the newspaper is a great resource. Pets do get lost. Let’s try to get them back home. Thanks. — Lynnie, via email Woof, woof! Daisy (a tan Chihuahua), our office mascot who is a rescue dog, agrees. She comes to work daily and adds many smiles for us! — Heloise











HOROSCOPE Saturday, Jan. 28, 2012 There are some strong indications that in the year ahead you could become involved in an innovative project that’s initiated by another. Do what you can to help, because if it works out, it’ll prove to be lucrative for you as well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Sharing is the operative word for you. This not only includes your friendships and romantic relationships, but in every interaction you have. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Even though you might learn about something from friends that will not sit well, try not to make too much of it. Chances are it’ll come out that it wasn’t true anyway. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — It’s important that you go after what you want, instead of wishing that things would come to you. Others don’t know what you desire; you need to figure that out for yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Yes, you need to fend for yourself, but that doesn’t mean you can bully your way to what you want without suffering the consequences. Try working for things. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — As long as you can maintain leadership and do what you want, everything will be fine. However, if you are challenged or opposed in any way, you could be quite disruptive. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Be careful not to bank on strengths that you lack, be they physical or mental. You might have only a slight edge in your commercial dealings rather than the grand lead you imagine. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Usually your sound logic prevents you from becoming emotional over little things, but currently the opposite could be true. Try not to make any decision based on sentiment or passion. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Left to your normal, hard-working ways, all will be fine. However, if you give in to outside, unproductive influences, defeatist principles could quickly beat you down. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t get involved with any cliques or groups that do not appreciate who and what you are — that’s a waste of your time. Spend your day only with those who have something good to offer. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You should never discount the opposition, especially in matters of personal importance, such as career, reputation or physical health. The odds may not be in your favor. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — It’s best not to take as gospel any lavish promises made to you, especially if they involve items of personal importance. There’s a good chance they could just consist of hollow rhetoric. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You don’t need any extra pressure placed, so don’t take on another long-range obligation if you can avoid it. Get your old responsibilities cleared away before you tackle any more projects. COPYRIGHT 2012 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

It said 380 children have been detained, including some under age 14. The United Nations estimates that more than 5,400 people have died in the turmoil. The U.N.

defectors clash with government forces and some protesters take up arms to protect themselves. The violence has inflamed the sectarian divide in the country, where members of Assad’s Alawite sect dominate the regime despite a Sunni Muslim majority. Activists said at least 35 people were killed in Homs on Thursday and another 39 people were killed across the country Friday. The video posted Friday

Mohammed Ahmed alDabi said the cities of Homs, Hama and Idlib have all witnessed a “very high escalation” in violence since Tuesday. A “fierce military campaign” was also under way in the Hamadiyeh district of Hama since the early hours of Friday, according to the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and other activists. They said the sound of heavy machine-gun fire and loud explosions reverberated across the area. Some activists reported seeing uncollected bodies in the streets of Hama. Elsewhere, a car bomb exploded Friday at a checkpoint outside the northern city of Idlib, the Observatory said, citing witnesses. The number of casualties was not immediately clear. Details of the wave of killings in Homs emerged Friday from an array of residents and activists “There has been a terrifying massacre,” Rami Abdul-Rahman, director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, told the AP on Friday. He called for an independent investigation. Thursday started with a spate of sectarian kidnappings and killings between the city’s population of Sunnis and Alawites, a Shiite sect to which Assad belongs as well as most of his security and military leadership, said Mohammad Saleh, a centrist opposition figure and resident of Homs.

faces strong opposition from China and Russia, and both nations have veto power. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said Friday that Moscow will oppose any resolution because it does not exclude the possibility of outside military interference. The Syrian uprising, which began last March with mostly peaceful protests, has become increasingly violent in recent months as army

by activists showed the bodies of five young children, their faces bloodied, wrapped in orange plastic bags. It said the children were believed to be from two families, the Akras and the Bahadours. Brown cardboard placards with the children’s names written in Arabic were placed on their chests, identifying them: Thanaa, Ali, Najm, Abdul-Ghani and Sidra. The video could not be independently verified. Hilal Khashan, a political science professor at the American University of Beirut, said the spike in violence was linked to increasing pressure from the international community, the Arab League and the United Nations. “The regime is trying to finish the matter through military means as soon as possible,” and for that reason the level of violence increased,” he said. On Tuesday, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid alMoallem insisted that Damascus will continue its crackdown and said Syria would not accept any international interference in its affairs. Assad’s regime claims terrorists acting out a foreign conspiracy by the U.S., Israel and Gulf Arab countries are behind the uprising, not protesters seeking change. The head of Arab League observers in Syria said in a statement that violence in the country has spiked over the past few days. Sudanese Gen.





BEIRUT (AP) — Two days of bloody turmoil in Syria killed at least 74 people, including small children, as forces loyal to President Bashar Assad shelled residential buildings and fired on crowds in a dramatic escalation of violence, activists said Friday. Video posted online showed the bodies of five small children, five women and a man, all bloodied and piled on beds in what appeared to be an apartment after a building was hit in the city of Homs. A narrator said an entire family had been “slaughtered.” Much of the violence was focused in Homs, where heavy gunfire hammered the city Friday in a second day of chaos. A day earlier, the city saw a flare-up of sectarian kidnappings and killings between its Sunni and Alawite communities, and pro-regime forces blasted residential buildings with mortars and gunfire, according to activists. At least 384 children have been killed, as of Jan. 7, in the crackdown on Syria’s uprising since it began nearly 11 months ago, the U.N. children’s agency UNICEF said Friday. The count, based on reports from human rights groups, included children under age 18. Most of the deaths took

Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks.

Closing things out Big 4th leads Buccs past Indians BY COLIN FOSTER Sports Writer

Djokovic to meet Nadal in final If anyone knows how Novak Djokovic feels after sweating and scrapping for almost five hours in the Australian Open semifinals, it’s his next opponent Rafael Nadal. A day after Nadal beat Roger Federer in four compelling sets, Djokovic dug deep to overcome Andy Murray 6-3, 3-6, 6-7 (4), 6-1, 7-5 on Friday night after 4 hours, 50 minutes. See Page 19.

Covington and Newton are two teams that are neck-andneck in the Cross County Conference race. The difference on Friday, however, was one team’s ability to close. After Newton scratched and clawed its way back into the game in the third quarter, the Buccaneers closed on a 17-9 run in the fourth — going 9 for 13 from the foul line — to seize control of the game and hold on for a 47-32 victory in Covington. “It was just one of those games you have to grind out,” Covington coach Roger Craft

COVINGTON said. “Give credit to Newton. They played hard and got back in it. When all was said and done, we made some plays, made some things happen. We made our free throws down the stretch — and that always helps. “We’re still young,” Newton coach Steve Fischer said. “We’re a young team that just has to learn how to win. We’re making steps, we’re getting there. But we’ve got be ready to compete when we play teams that know how to win like Covington, Miami East and Bethel.” In a sloppy first quarter where the two teams combined

Eagles ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 ing one last desperation attempt at the buzzer as Troy Christian (10-3, 7-0 Metro Buckeye Conference) gutted out a hard-fought 41-38 victory Friday night at Troy Christian. Since that 53-51 loss to open last season, the Eagles haven’t lost in conference play — the win was Troy Christian’s 18th straight in the MBC. “I was just thinking, ‘Please, don’t let this be deja vu,” Zawadzki said. “We haven’t lost in the conference since that buzzerbeater. And he (Lieberman) took that shot tonight from almost the identical spot. My heart sank … and then I saw the referee come out from under the basket waving his arms.” The win was particularly sweet for Kirkpatrick, who had a monstrous night. Typically a defensive specialist, Kirkpatrick exploded for a game-high and career-best 21 points, hitting his first five attempts from beyond the arc and going 6 for 8 from 3-point range — a school record for 3s in one game. “I was actually more focused on defense going in,” Kirkpatrick said. “Coach said (Jay) Zollars and Lieberman were their two big scorers, and he put me on Lieberman — and I was honored for the assignment.” And he held Lieberman to a career-low four points while he was at it. Five of Kirkpatrick’s 3s came in the first half, including one at the buzzer that gave Troy Christian a 16-7 lead at the end of the first quarter. It was his third of the night, and he hit two more in the first half — but the Eagles led only 24-18 at the break — and one more in the third. A drive-and-dish from Kirkpatrick to Christian Salazar (11 points, five rebounds) at the end of the third made the score 36-28 Troy Christian. “The buzzer-beater (at the end of the first). After that, I was like, ‘I guess it’s in tonight,’” going Kirkpatrick said. “We’ve seen him do that before in open gyms, so we know he’s capable,” Zawadzki said of Kirkpatrick’s performance. “Once he gets on a roll, he’s a pure streak shooter. His night was very special. “What he did tonight both offensively and defensively may be one of the best performances here since I became coach.” Zollars led Dayton Christian (7-6, 5-2) with 10 points and eight rebounds and Tanner Wall scored

seven, helping the Warriors make it exciting late — and very nearly helping them avenge a 6347 loss to the Eagles earlier this season. Dayton Christian closed to within two at 38-36 with 4:40 to go, but Kirkpatrick drove and hit a floater — his only 2 of the night — to push the edge back to four with 4:09 to go. A jumper by Lieberman cut Troy Christian’s lead to to 40-38 with 1:20 to play, and a Kirkpatrick free throw made it a three-point game with less than half a minute to go. “They got to see film on us and they got to see us in person, so they were prepared,” Zawadzki said. “When you’ve got my two leading scorers (Jacob Grant and Grant Zawadzki) that came in averaging about 30 points per game — and they only combine for three tonight? That’s what makes this group special. “They play as a team no matter what the situation is.

Miami East travels to Franklin Monroe Tuesday.

Buccs-Indians ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 for nine turnovers, the Buccs emerged with a 1410 advantage by the end. Covington’s Ryan Craft and Newton’s Daniel Vance carried their teams on offense, as each scored seven in the quarter. After Newton’s Bobby Gerodimos scored the first bucket of the second, Covington ended the quarter on a 10-0 run. The Buccs got their first double-digit lead of the game after Austin Angle scored four straight off the bench to put his team up 24-12 at half. “They had two big runs that got them the lead in the first half,” Fisher said.

“Then that run right there after we cut it to seven (in the fourth), that was a little bit of a game-changer.” Newton’s big adjustment coming out of half was switching to full-court pressure. The Indians had a slow start in the quarter but finished strong as the pressure proved effective, forcing five Buccs turnovers. Vance — who finished with 15 — added seven more points to pull the Indians within seven by the end at 30-23. “We wanted to get the tempo a little bit, which is why we came out pressing,” Fisher said. “That got us back in the game a little bit.

Win sets up Djokovic-Nadal Australian final M E L B O U R N E , Australia (AP) — If anyone knows how Novak Djokovic feels after sweating and scrapping for almost five hours in the Australian Open semifinals, it’s his next opponent Rafael Nadal. A day after Nadal beat Roger Federer in four compelling sets, Djokovic dug deep to overcome Andy Murray 6-3, 3-6, 6-7 (4), 6-1, 7-5 on Friday night after 4 hours, 50 minutes. Defending champion Djokovic will face Nadal in a third straight Grand Slam final on Sunday. It’s a reversal from three years ago, when Nadal had to regroup after his own lengthy semifinal. The Spaniard needed 5 hours, 14 minutes in 2009 to get past compatriot Fernando Verdasco in the longest men’s singles match in the tournament’s history. He was so exhausted, he didn’t lift a racket the following day. Yet when the final rolled around, he beat Federer who had an extra day to rest in five sets that reduced the usually composed Swiss player to tears. Now a weary Djokovic has less than 48 hours to prepare to face Nadal, one of the most fit players in the game. “I know that I maybe have a mental edge because I’ve won six finals. … We played in 2011 and I’ve had lots of success against him,” Djokovic said. “That’s going to be my main priority and concern the next day and a

Just as Nadal has the mental edge over Federer, Djokovic has developed a hold over the Spaniard. But the No. 1-ranked Djokovic has shown chinks in his armor at Melbourne Park this year. Against David Ferrer in the quarterfinals, he struggled to breathe through most of a straight-sets win and at one point, clutched his leg in agony. Against Murray, he looked completely spent again when he hobbled gingerly back to his chair after dropping serve to go down 2-1 in the third set. “He’s done it many times

before,” Murray said. “He runs very well even when he’s breathing heavy. I was ready for that. He was similar in the last match. But he moved fine.” Murray had his own slump when he lost the fourth set in 25 minutes an aberration in a match featuring long baseline rallies that quite often ended in errors. After Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova go for the women’s title and the No. 1 ranking on Saturday, Djokovic will bid for his fifth major title in Sunday men’s final, with the chance to become only the fifth man in the Open Era to win three straight Grand Slam titles. If he can achieve that, Djokovic would make 10time Grand Slam winner

Nadal the first man since the Open Era began in 1968 to lose three straight major finals. Just like Nadal three years ago, Djokovic doesn’t plan on doing much before Sunday’s final. “I think I had enough time spent on the court. Now it’s all about recovery,” said Djokovic, who has won 19 consecutive Grand Slam matches. After a year in which almost everything went his way and he overtook Nadal and Federer for the No. 1 ranking, Djokovic is just finding out what it feels like to be the hunted rather than the hunter. “I’m aware now that everyone wants to win the major title, get that No. 1 spot, he said. “It’s normal. It’s something I’m prepared for.”

Pro Bowl could leave Hawaii HONOLULU (AP) — Many NFL stars are hoping that when it comes to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii, aloha doesn’t mean goodbye. The NFL all-star game doesn’t have a home beyond Sunday’s game. League and Hawaii officials are negotiating a deal to keep the game in the islands, which is hosting it for the second straight year after it was played in Miami in 2010, breaking a 30-year run in Hawaii. “It takes away from the game when it’s somewhere else,” said Miami Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall, who also selected to the Miami game two years ago. “It’s always a privilege. It’s always an honor to be selected to a Pro Bowl. But this is what the Pro Bowl is about paradise. So it would (stink) definitely if we no longer come out here.” Some players went as far as saying they wouldn’t participate if the Pro Bowl was moved. “That’s a lot of the players’ attitude, I think. If it’s in an NFL city, you’re in those cities quite often,”

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen said. Allen and other players said the game belongs in Hawaii, where it’s more family oriented, relaxed and considered a reward for the hard work they put it during the season. Jacksonville running back Maurice Jones-Drew’s first Pro Bowl was in Miami, which he said was a great experience. “But it’s nothing like coming over to Hawaii. This is my first time here for the Pro Bowl, and it’s great,” he said. In Hawaii, the players are treated to a beachside hotel to themselves. They sip on colorful, tropical drinks and lounge around the pool, golf or wade in one of the white-sand lagoons at Ko Olina Resort. “In Miami, we didn’t have the whole hotel. You’re signing autographs 99 percent of the time at the hotel. It was just chaotic,” Allen said. “Guys weren’t showing up. You had a lot of alternates in and out. Over here, it’s kind of what everybody looks forward to. … I like it here. I’m a big fan of tradition. It started here. We should keep it here.” But the Pro Bowl wasn’t born here. It was hosted for

years in Los Angeles before jumping around the country in the 1970s, going everywhere from the Kingdome in Seattle to the Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. The game was first played at Aloha Stadium in 1980 with New Orleans Saints running back Chuck Muncie leading the NFC to a 37-27 victory. The winners earned $5,000. On Sunday, the winners earn nearly 10 times that amount. The state is paying the NFL $4 million per game for the rights to hold this year’s game. About seven months ago, Gov. Neil Abercrombie opposed the cash-strapped state paying millions to host the Pro Bowl when the money could be used for education. “You can’t do things like give 4 million bucks to a $9 billion football industry and not give any money to children,” Abercrombie said then. “You’ve got this spectacle of these multimillionaires and billionaires out there arguing about how they’re going to divide it up, and then they come and ask us to bribe them with $4 million to have a scrimmage out here in paradise. “We’ve got to get our values straight and our priorities straight.”

Nets edge Cavs CLEVELAND (AP) — Deron Williams scored 27 points and the New Jersey Nets won consecutive games for the first time this season with a 99-96 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night. New Jersey came into the game battling illness and injuries. Forward Kris Humphries missed Friday morning’s shoot-around with the stomach flu, but was in the starting lineup and scored 18 points with 11 rebounds in 33 minutes. The Nets played without center Mehmet Okur (back injury) and guard MarShon Brooks (strained Achilles), but New Jersey led from wireto-wire despite dressing only 10 players. The Nets, who defeated Philadelphia in overtime on Wednesday, also completed their first winning road trip with a 2-1 record. Anthony Morrow added 22 points for New Jersey. Rookie point guard Kyrie Irving scored a season-high 32 points, including 21 in the fourth quarter, for Cleveland. The Cavaliers have lost five of six. The Nets built a 32-20 lead early in the second quarter. Cleveland cut the lead to 36-33 midway through the period, but New Jersey scored 11 straight points and led 4737 at halftime. New Jersey opened the third quarter with 3-pointers from Williams and DeShawn Stevenson. The Nets hit five 3-pointers in the period and built a 16point lead. New Jersey led comfortably throughout most of the fourth quarter until the Cavaliers rallied. Cleveland cut the deficit to eight points with 1:57 remaining.

Irving hit at 3-pointer at the buzzer. Williams also had 10 assists for his fourth straight double-double. New Jersey last won back-to-back games on March 11-14, 2011. Those were the last two victories in a five-game winning streak. The Nets began this trip with a 15-point loss in Chicago, but bounced back with a 97-90 overtime victory against Atlantic Division-leading Philadelphia on Wednesday. New Jersey coach Avery Johnson didn’t know until about an hour before the game if Humphries would be able to play. Cleveland struggled offensively until the fourth quarter. The Cavaliers didn’t get to the free throw line until the 5:25 mark of the second quarter when Antawn Jamison converted two shots. Jamison scored 20 points while Ramon Sessions added 11. NOTES: Johnson said Okur will have an MRI on Saturday. Okur missed two games earlier in the season because of back spasms. … Brooks missed his third straight game and Johnson said he will have a further medical examination Saturday. Brooks might play in Sunday’s home game against Toronto. Brooks is the NBA’s second-leading scorer among rookies, trailing only Irving.
