Troy ‘Stopover’ sells out Tickets go fast for Mumford & Sons BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer

Cast votes in readers’ poll Last fall, Americans were called upon to participate in one of the most important elections in this country’s history. While this vote certainly can’t compare to last November’s vote in terms of importance, we hope it turns out to be a little more fun. That’s right, the Troy Daily News/Miami Valley Sunday News is calling on you to participate in its annual “All-Miami County Readers’ Poll.” Coming

Tickets for the Aug. 30-31 Gentlemen of the Road Stopover — featuring headlining act Mumford & Sons — sold out within a few hours Friday afternoon. Troy is one of only five stops on the tour, which includes Lewes, UK;

TROY Ontario, Canada; Guthrie, Okla., and St. Augustine, Fla. “We are absolutely thrilled and excited to have sold out so quickly,” said Karin Manovich, executive director of Troy Main Street. “Now it’s time for the work to begin in preparation.”

Troy was selected folan lowing application process. In an interview with the Troy Daily News T u e s d a y, Mumford & Sons banjo

player Winston Marshall said Troy was selected because of the city’s commitment to addressing any challenges a tour of such magnitude brings. Other performers at Troy Memorial Stadium will include Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Old Crow Medicine Show, The Vaccines, Half Moon Run, Those Darlins, Willy Mason and Bear’s Den.

Lawyers: Proposed tax bad for consumers

Sunday, in the Miami Valley Sunday News.



Will boom change Amish? A new source of money has come to the Amish of western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio. They own some of the most coveted land in the nation, and rapid-fire leasing by gas companies is creating millionaires among them and disturbing communities worried about greed and envy. See Religion, Page 7.

Storm hits Northeast BOSTON (AP) — A storm that forecasters warned could be a blizzard for the history books began clobbering the New Yorkto-Boston corridor Friday, grounding flights, closing workplaces and sending people rushing to get home. See Page 11.

McDade was part of a recent improvement project through Partners In Hope and Troy Housing Opportunity United, which allowed the facility to have an enhanced look in an effort to make it more comfortable.

For most Ohio lawyers, Gov. John Kasich’s plan to tax professional services such as legal advice is going to be a tough sell. Gov. John Kasich’s plan includes a proposal to tax professional services such as legal advice, accountant services and other areas brings about the question of exactly what is a “professional service” for one Miami County lawyer. According to the Associated Press, the $63.3 billion, two-year state budget Kasich introduced this week calls for lowering the sales tax rate from 5.5 percent to 5 percent, while applying the tax to additional areas — including entertainment, cable TV and certain services. The plan would exempt child care, rent, medical and other basic services. One major negative for two Troy-based lawyers, David Beitzel and Jose Lopez, was the impact on customer and administrative costs. “It’s really a dual tax because it’s a new tax on the consumer and a new tax on small businesses, because it’s going to increase costs,” Beitzel said. Lopez also felt the sales tax on legal services was a “dual tax.” “From our perspective, it’s a disaster in terms of accounting and accountability for the client,” Lopez said in a voice-mail message. “It’s going to lead to double taxation, meaning they’d be taxed when we took the case, and there’s services that are going to be performed during the case that are already being taxed — it’s really going to be very, very unworkable.” Beitzel said if a service tax was imposed on his law firm, more administrative costs would be incurred and both the tax and administrative overhead costs would be passed down to clients.

to find jobs, Holycross said, especially with the emphasis placed on having particular degrees and certificates. But she has been going door to door conducting surveys called the Capacity Inventory to show that residents already have many skills



that can be utilized in the workforce. Categories include health, office, community skills, food, transportation, child care and several more. For example, a person who has cared for an elderly grandparent could work toward a job at a nursing home. “It’s all about, ‘How can

we capitalize to keep them out of isolation?’” Holycross said, noting that some residents have disabilities or mental illness. “There’s a lot of giftedness in the community, but with the economy, people are just left thinking about getting through today, not tomorrow. We’re talking about ‘What gifts and tal-

ents do you have, and what resources do you need to be connected with?’” On the agenda for next year are at least three larger family events, free tax preparation sessions, holiday celebrations and monthly tenant meetings to discuss connecting talents with resources needed.

“It’s supposedly picking some professional services and not others,” said Beitzel, an attorney who has practiced law for more than 36 years. “Some are getting a hall pass. How are they defining who is a professional and who is not or are we just picking and choosing?” Beitzel said he was curious to know which professions were included in the service taxation. Ohio State Bar Association spokesman Kenneth Brown said his organization has traditionally been opposed to service taxes, but he said the group was taking a closer look at the proposal before offering an opinion. “Times are different now,” Brown said. “It’s just not appropriate,” Lopez said. “It’s a service — it’s not a commodity.” Beitzel noticed the Ohio State Bar Association held off on an official statement, noting he also needed more information to form a professional opinion. Beitzel argued that the term “professional” can

range from barbers and hair stylists to lawyers and doctors. “It’s not specifically defined in the Ohio Revised Code,” he said. “It’s all about the point of view of who has a professional privilege.” Beitzel cited examples of professional privilege in communication, such as a lawyer, medical doctors and even members of clergy. “It’s a matter of what exactly is privileged communication,” Beitzel said. Betizel said he will still wait before firming up his argument for or against the tax once more information is released from the state. “Kasich has already changed things a few times,” Beitzel said. “The devil is in the details.” professional Other organizations for Ohio lawyers and accountants have so far held off judgment, saying they are hearing concerns but still evaluating the governor’s plan. On the day of his budget unveiling, Kasich predicted that lobbyists —

experts on legislative negotiating — would try to get the tax on their own industry removed from Ohio’s budget bill. Barbara Benton, a lobbyist with The Ohio Society of CPAs, said she’s heard from many accountants who are concerned about the tax but the organization hasn’t taken a position on the proposal. “It’s a comprehensive tax package, and we want to look at all the components,” Benton said. Jennifer Green, a former lobbyist for the Florida Institute of CPAs, said similar proposals have surfaced repeatedly for decades in Florida. All but one failed to gain traction. And the one that won legislative approval, in the late 1980s, was within six revoked months. “What you hear a lot is these businesses aren’t going to absorb another 6 percent,” she said. “They’re going to increase their fees and pass that on to consumers. And is that really going to stabilize Florida’s economy?”

Tax ■ CONTINUED FROM 1 “The consumers are going to get hit two times,” Beitzel said. “Once for the sales tax for our services and two, for the added cost for collecting and accounting for the tax.“ Beitzel said if Ohio plans on taxing the professional services of lawyers and accountants, it’s the average person off the street who field the costs. “It’s a tax on the person that comes to see me with, more often than not, traumatic life circumstances,” Betizel said. “It’ll be the state that is taxing them, not me. It will be one more thing I have to keep track of in terms of administration and paperwork and government forms — lawyers prepare plenty of those to begin with.” Beitzel also wanted more clear explanation of which professionals were exempt from the sales tax proposal and why some services were selected and others such as doctors, veterinarians, dentists and other service-oriented businesses were left untouched.

U.S. growth in Q4 likely stronger on export gains WASHINGTON (AP) — A jump in energy-related exports and a steep decline in oil imports lowered the U.S. trade deficit in December to nearly a threeyear low. The improvement sug-

gests the economy grew in the October-December quarter instead of shrinking as the government estimated last week. A brighter outlook for trade also illustrates how a boom in oil and gas produc-

tion is reducing crude oil imports and making the U.S. a leader in the export of fuels. And it shows that higher domestic sales of fuel-efficient cars are lowering dependence on oil. The trade gap fell nearly

21 percent in December from November to $38.6 billion, the Commerce Department said Friday. Total exports rose 2.1 percent to $186 billion, driven in part by record exports of gasoline and other fuels.

■ CONTINUED FROM 1 Activities also will be set up downtown as part of the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover. “Most of downtown will be set up as a festival, with performances in select venues, and vendors and entertainment in the streets like Troy Streets Alive,” Manovich said. “Admission to downtown will be a very nominal fee — you just can’t get into Troy Memorial Stadium.” Local bands will be hired to play downtown as well, she said, adding that details are still being finalized. “If you didn’t get tickets, you just won’t have access to the entire festival, but it will be really really fun,” Manovich said. Mumford & Sons’ sophomore album Babel was the second-biggest selling U.S. debut in 2012, with “I Will Wait” reaching the No. 1 spot and “Lover of The Light” climbing to No. 12. The band will performing on the Grammys airing at 8 p.m. Sunday on CBS. Mumford & Sons has been nominated for six Grammys — tied for the most nominations this year.

Hunt ■ CONTINUED FROM 1 on you, and a distance. How do you close that?” asked T. Gregory Hall, a retired tactical supervisor for a special emergency response team for the Pennsylvania State Police. “The bottom line is, when he decides that he is going to make a stand, the operators are in great jeopardy,” Hall said. As authorities weathered heavy snow and freezing temperatures in the mountains, thousands of heavily armed police remained on the lookout throughout California, Nevada, Arizona and northern Mexico. Police said officers still were guarding more than 40 people mentioned as targets in a rant they said Dorner posted on Facebook. He vowed to use “every bit of small arms training, demolition, ordinance and survival training I’ve been given” to bring “warfare” to the LAPD and its families. At noon, police and U.S. marshals accompanied by computer forensics specialists used a search warrant to remove about 10 paper grocery bags of evidence from his mother’s singlestory house in the Orange County city of La Palma. Dorner’s mother and sister cooperated with the search, and a police spokesman said. The manhunt had Southern California residents on edge. Unconfirmed sightings were reported near Barstow, about 60 miles north of the mountain search, and in downtown Los Angeles. Some law enforcement officials said he appeared to be everywhere and nowhere, and speculated that he was trying to spread out their resources. For the time being, their focus was on the mountains 80 miles east of Los Angeles, a snowy wilderness filled with thick forests and jagged peaks, that creates peril as much for Dorner as the officers hunting him. Bad weather grounded helicopters with heat-sensing technology. After the discovery of his truck Thursday afternoon, SWAT teams in camouflage started scouring the mountains. As officers worked through the night, a storm blew in, possibly covering tracks that had led them away from his truck but offering the possibility of a fresh trail to follow. “The snow is great for tracking folks as well as looking at each individual cabin to see if there’s any signs of forced entry,” said San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon.

Air Force pilot to speak At 7 p.m. Feb. 20, guest speaker Air Force pilot Jack Mecham will present a program on the Blackbird family of aircraft, which consisted of the A-12, SR71, YF-12 Interceptor, the M-21 and the D-21. The lecture is free and open to the public at the WACO Air Museum, 1865 S. County Road 25-A, Troy. He will explain the configuration of each of these vehicles and the role they played. Blackbirds are to this day the highest-performance jet-powered airplanes ever flown. They have set numerous world speed and altitude records

for manned aircraft including a one hour, fifty-four minute trip from New York to London in 1974. Blackbirds became a vital tool of international decision-making as their advanced photographic and electronic sensor systems collected intelligence for the Air Force and other federal agencies. The aircraft remain a technological marvel. Practically every area of design required new approaches or breakthroughs in technology. While the aircraft

are now retired, the maximum speed and altitude capabilities are still classified. Mecham flew more than 20 different types of military aircraft including the SR-71. He logged more than 12,100 flying hours during his 20-year career. After retiring from the Air Force, he managed three aerospace firms including the aerospace division of Chrysler, based in Dayton. He retired from the aerospace business in 1996. For more information, go to www.wacoair or call (937) 335-WACO.

Another example of politics at its finest I was one of the 500 or so superintendents who was sitting in the room when Gov. John Kasich unveiled his plan to improve and fund public education in Ohio. Now, mind you, his plan is entirely different than Govs. Strickland’s and Taft’s, which is a head-scratcher in itself, but the promises were the same. Just like the two before him, he told us he has the answers. All we have to do is trust him (just like we trusted them). It’s important to note that when we received our invitations to attend this meeting we were warned to be on our best behavior, because “this is an emotional topic around which people hold strong views.” In other words, sit down, shut up, listen, and don’t you dare disagree with what you hear. I felt like I was 5 years old again. As if that didn’t set a negative enough tone, as I sat listening to him speak, I was amazed at just how politically astute the man is. For someone who constantly tells us he’s not a politician, he certainly acts like one. In fact, he assured us all that “there’s no politics in this plan.” Of course, he made that statement immediately after criticizing Gov. Strickland’s previous plan. HHHMM, a Republican criticizing a Democrat’s ideas. No politics there, right? Within hours of his presentation, the partisan comments had already begun. Despite not having the first bit of specific information, Republicans were praising the plan and Democrats were denouncing it. The partisan lines had already been drawn, and we’ll have to listen to this nonsense from both sides for the next several months. Yep, no politics there. The governor promised us that his goal was to “remove barriers and improve flexibility.” Of course, he made that promise immediately after sharing a slide listing the mandates he has already imposed on us. A subsequent press release praised him for “removing state-driven education mandates.” This is a curious statement given the fact that education is currently saddled with more state mandates than ever before. Playing loosely with the truth? Nothing political about that, is there? Most of us drove to Columbus as if we were driving to our own funerals given our fear of what he would do to our funding. When he announced at the beginning of the meeting (which was political genius in itself) that there was no need to worry; that he had our financial backs; the collective sigh of relief could be heard throughout the room. And, he had us. Nothing he said after that mattered, and he said a lot. Most of the attendees were so happy to hear that he wasn’t going to decimate their budgets that they would have danced naked in the aisles if he had asked them to. Many actually praised the governor for his forward-thinking ideas even though we had no concept of what his plan really was. These positive statements showed up in press releases everywhere. Yeah, right — no politics in that. It also was interesting to hear the governor talk about the importance of leveling the playing field for all Ohio students, and he would do that by providing more aid to low-income districts than to wealthier districts. In fact, a couple dozen of the wealthiest districts in Ohio have been identified as “a few outliers that would be mostly on their own; districts that are really wealthy who we know can help themselves.” Regardless of whether you agree with that strategy or not, one thing cannot be debated; President Obama has been skewered by Republicans for leveling the playing field between the rich and poor and here was Gov. Kasich doing exactly the same thing. Politics? Nah! And, oh yes, he didn’t really hold everybody harmless in his proposal. Despite the fact that he has trumpeted the “shared services” concept as if he invented it himself, he did manage to slash the budgets of educational service centers; the very agencies that work with districts in a shared services model to help control costs. In other words, he publicly says one thing then does another. Now, no redblooded politician would ever do that, would he?

How is this administration any different? Will the author of the Obama administration white paper on killing U.S. citizens please report for his war-crimes trial right away? If he served in the George W. Bush administration, someone would already be agitating for his extraordinary rendition to The Hague. The white paper outlines why the Obama administration believes that it can kill U.S. citizens involved in al-Qaida without due process. This is not a merely theoretical question, as Anwar alAwlaki found out from the business end of a Hellfire missile a couple of years ago in Yemen. The left is still furious that the Bush administration waterboarded three captured terrorists after Sept. 11, 2001. Yet, with a few exceptions, it has blithely accepted the Obama administration's extrajudicial assassination policy that has killed about 1,000 times as many people. During the Bush years, a small army of former Democratic officials, law professors, op-ed writers and bloggers blasted the Bush administration as dangerous and un-American for asserting the executive branch's war powers, aka "trampling the Constitution." Barack Obama was going to be

Rich Lowry Troy Daily News Guest Columnist different. We had this on the highest possible authority: Barack Obama. As a senator in 2007, he set out his contrasting vision: "We will again set an example for the world that the law is not subject to the whims of stubborn rulers, and that justice is not arbitrary." In a speech as president in 2009, he said we must fight alQaida. "But," he added, pointedly, "we must do so with an abiding confidence in the rule of law and due process; in checks and balances and accountability." The white paper outlines how that looks like in practice. If an "informed, high-level official" of the Obama administration determines that a U.S. citizen is one of the "senior operational leaders" of al-Qaida and "recently" involved in "activities" related to a violent

attack against the United States, well then, he can be terminated with extreme prejudice. Note that the high-level official has to be "informed." This must be what Obama meant when he insisted his policies would respect "due process" and "checks and balances." The white paper has ignited not quite a firestorm (again, this isn't the Bush administration), but at least a smoldering ember of browfurrowed consternation among the president's supporters and journalistic sympathizers. They rarely say what their alternative would be. Does a U.S. citizen get an exemption from targeting if he becomes a high-level al-Qaida operative? Should his status be litigated before he can be targeted, and if so, by whom, for how long and on the basis of what evidence? Can he show up in court to confront his accusers, a basic element of the AngloAmerican system? It is self-evidently absurd. Civil libertarians lament that the argument of the white paper parallels the reasoning of the Bush administration. No kidding. It's not for nothing that the author sounds like he could have worked for Dick Cheney. The

Obama administration's approach reflects the logic of the laws of war, the structure of American government and the exigencies of the fight against al-Qaida. It is well-established by the courts that an American citizen who is an enemy combatant can be treated as an enemy combatant. It is also well-established by the courts that it is not the role of the judiciary to interfere in the executive branch's conduct of a war. When an American citizen joins a shadowy band at war with America and operating in areas beyond the reach of law enforcement, he is a legitimate target. This is not to say that the white paper is beyond reproach, or that it should have been kept secret for so long, but the basic point would seem obvious. Democratic partisans might be confused. They considered Bush a threat to America's liberty because of his defense of his war powers, yet their hero now stands on similar ground. How to resolve the contradiction? Easy. Conclude that they were wrong the first time. Rich Lowry can be reached via e-mail:

California Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi, D-Torrance, reacts as he receives a flu shot from Tyler Poncy, a licensed vocational nurse during a free flu vaccine clinic at the Capitol in Sacramento, Calif., Jan. 28. Health officials say the worst of the flu season appears to be over. The number of states reporting intense or widespread flu dropped again in late January.

After early start, worst of flu season may now be over NEW YORK (AP) — The worst of the flu season appears to be over. The number of states reporting intense or widespread illnesses dropped again last week, and in a few states there was very little flu going around, U.S. health officials said Friday. The season started earlier than normal, first in the Southeast and then spreading. But now, by some measures, flu activity has been ebbing for at leastfour weeks in much of the country. Flu and pneumonia deaths also dropped the last two weeks, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. “It’s likely that the worst of the current flu season is over,” CDC spokesman Tom Skinner said. But flu is hard to predict, he and others stressed, and there have been spikes late in the season in the past. For now, states like Georgia and New York where doctor’s offices were jammed a few weeks ago are reporting low flu activity. The hot spots are now the West Coast and the Southwest. Among the places that have seen a drop: Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest in Allentown, Pa.,

which put up a tent outside its emergency room last month to help deal with the steady stream of patients. There were about 100 patients each day back then. Now it’s down to 25 and the hospital may pack up its tent next week, said Terry Burger, director of infection control and prevention for the hospital. “There’s no question that we’re seeing a decline,” she said. In early December, CDC officials announced flu season had arrived, a month earlier than usual. They were worried, saying it had been nine years since a winter flu season started like this one. That was 2003-04 one of the deadliest seasons in the past 35 years, with more than 48,000 deaths. Like this year, the major flu strain was one that tends to make people sicker, especially the elderly, who are mostvulnerable to flu and its complications But back then, that year’s flu vaccine wasn’t made to protect against that bug, and fewer people got flu shots. The vaccine is reformulated almost every year, and the CDC has said this year’s vaccine is a good match to the types that are circulating. A preliminary

CDC study showed it is about 60 percent effective, which is close to the average. So far, the season has been labeled moderately severe. Like others, Lehigh Valley’s Burger was cautious about making predictions. “I’m not certain we’re completely out of the woods,” with more wintry weather ahead and people likely to be packed indoors where flu can spread around, she said. The government does not keep a running tally of flu-related deaths in adults, but has received reports of 59 deaths in children. The most — nine — were in Texas, where flu activity was still high last week. Roughly 100 children die in an average flu season, the CDC says On average, about 24,000 Americans die each flu season, according to the CDC. According to the CDC report, the number of states with intense activity is down to 19, from 24 the previous week, and flu is widespread in 38 states, down from 42. Flu is now minimal in Florida, Kentucky, Maine, Montana, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Ohio boosting roster of troopers COLUMBUS (AP) — The State Highway Patrol graduated the first of two overlapping classes of cadets on Friday in a move expected to beef up a personnel roster that dwindled in recent years as the agency’s cadet classes failed to keep pace with attrition. Eighty-one cadets donning gray and black dress uniforms graduated in the 153rd class, believed to be the largest in the patrol’s 80-year history. More new troopers will graduate April 5 with the 154th class, which has 64 members.

Their addition is expected to bump up staffing to around 1,600 sworn officers, a level the patrol hasn’t seen since 2006. That will mean troopers can do more proactive work, rather than being limited sometimes to a more reactive role because of smaller staff sizes, said Col. John Born, the patrol’s superintendent. “You start just getting into a reactive mode, so you’re not able to prevent crashes, you’re more responding to crashes,” he said. “So what this class

will do is help us recover from that.” The patrol ended up short-staffed because it didn’t graduate any cadets in 2008 or 2010 and was losing about 60 people annually, mostly through attrition, spokeswoman Lt. Anne Ralston said. The number of troopers, she said, at times dropped to “critical levels,” when posts operated at minimum staffing and some didn’t have night shifts. The newest troopers will be added to 37 of Ohio’s 57 patrol posts.

Ohio Amish beard-cutting ringleader gets 15-year sentence also benefited them as Amish. Authorities had prosecuted the attacks as a hate crime. Before his sentencing, Samuel Mullet Sr. told the judge he had been accused of running a cult. Mullet, his ankles in chains and a white beard down to midchest, said that if his community is seen as a cult, “Then I’m going to take the punishment for everybody.” The 10 men and six

women were convicted last year in five attacks in Ohio Amish communities in 2011. The government said the attacks were retaliation against Amish who had defied or denounced Mullet’s authoritarian hold over the splinter group he started in 1995. The case has opened a rare window to the lives of the insular Amish, who shun many facets of modern life and are deeply reli-

gious. Amish believe the Bible instructs women to let their hair grow long and men to grow beards once they marry. Cutting it would be shameful and offensive. “The victims were terrorized and traumatized,” U.S. District Judge Dan Aaron Polster said, noting that the same constitution that exempts them from jury service and permission to leave school at 14 was

turned against the victims. “Each of you has received the benefits of that First Amendment.” With relatives of victims and his family sitting on opposite sides of the public gallery, Mullet said he has lived his life trying to help others. “That’s been my goal all my life,” Mullet said to a hushed courtroom, with his fellow defendants and their attorneys sitting at four

defense tables and filling the jury box. “I’m not going to be here much longer,” said Mullet, who didn’t elaborate on any health issues. The government had asked for a life sentence for Mullet, while the defense asked for two years or less. Some defendants tearfully offered to take the brunt of the blame and punishment on behalf of Mullet or their spouses.


CLEVELAND (AP) — Denying he ran an Amish cult, the 67-year-old ringleader of hair- and beardcutting attacks on fellow members of his faith in Ohio was sentenced Friday to 15 years in prison, while family members convicted of carrying out his orders got one to seven years. The judge said the defendants had violated the constitutional rights protecting religious practice that had

Will shale boom change lifestyle of the Amish? tiny, tight-knit communities become mini-boom towns. The gushers in Carroll County, Ohio, are so famous they make cameos in reports. investor Chesapeake Energy, the main driller in the county, cites production numbers in pitches to shareholders. Carroll County has issued nearly 200 permits for drilling, almost three times more than any other county in Ohio. “If this is a nine-inning baseball game, we’ve just finished up the national anthem,” said Gary R. Harris, special project coordinator at the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce. Rex Energy has a permanent storefront next to a hearing aid repair shop in the town square. Farmers drive Bentleys. The local Ponderosa is said to be the chain’s third-most-popular franchise in all of Ohio. Officials have even discussed installing a buggy lane on the roads to help horses keep a distance from the new truck traffic. Amishman John Troyer lives about five miles from some of those gushers. He owns a construction business and his family runs a trade post that sells board games and paperbacks. In 2007, when shale drilling in Pennsylvania was scarce and in Ohio was nonexistent, he was approached about leasing his mineral rights. It seemed like free money for parts of the land he wasn’t even using. Troyer leased with Great Lakes Energy Partners for $10 an acre. He made $430 on the deal. A couple of years later, he was building a house for a Pennsylvania man who was moving to Ohio. When they started talking about the shale drilling that had proliferated across the neighboring state, Troyer was astonished by what he heard. “They were saying like $3,000 an acre for out there. I didn’t believe him at all. Well, now it’s just about doubled that here,” he said. A couple of years later, with the potential for the Utica Shale now known, neighbors in the community of about 100 Amish families have signed deals worth $2,500 an acre. Later, he heard at church about some netting nearly $6,000 an acre. “In a way you kind of think you’re getting ripped off,” he said. His original lease was swapped by sever-

al firms and expired in 2012, but a clause renewed it automatically for another five years even though no drilling had begun. Still, the boom that surrounds Troyer’s 43 acres is so strong that it made it easier for him to accept the meager $430 he made from leasing his land. Business at his construction company is strong, thanks in part to Carroll County residents who can now afford to build new houses. Even the traditionally slow winter months have seen an uptick in activity. “There’s a lot of work out there, and some of it is definitely because of the gas,” he said.

By allowing gas drilling on their property, farmers could return to working the land without the worry of profiting from it.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Late last year, representatives from one of the world’s largest energy companies came to the home of Lydia and Sam Mast. The company was planning to drill a gas well on an adjacent property and needed to test the Masts’ water. By November, the access road had been paved and the rig built, drilling day and night into the shale formation that lies thousands of feet below the Masts’ seven acres in Lawrence County. “That was the first I knew there was a company called Chevron,” said Mast. The Masts and many of their neighbors are Amish, part of a community that has lived in white homes along New Wilmington’s back roads for decades. They technology and shun embrace a family-based, agrarian lifestyle, even though many can’t afford to farm anymore and instead support their families with construction businesses and shops run out of their homes. A new source of money, however, has come to the Amish of western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio. They own some of the most coveted land in the nation, and rapid-fire leasing by gas companies is creating millionaires among them and disturbing communities worried about greed and envy. Though many wells have yet to be drilled, the signing bonuses that come with leasing land are life-changing sums. Experts say the gas drilling could subsidize a farming career that hasn’t been economically viable for the Amish for a long time a technological means to an agrarian end. One sect in the news, the Mullet community of Bergholz, Ohio, uses a $3.5 million windfall from gas leases to pay for basic living expenses and legal bills while its leaders serve jail time for high-profile beardcutting practices that led to hate crime convictions. The hydraulic fracturing technology unlocking the oil and gas reserves under their land is the latest energy activity to enter the Amish community, which has long allowed shallow well drilling and strip mining. As a result, Amish homesteads are joining English landowner groups and fielding appearances from landmen eager for a signature, all surprised participants watching their

The nine casts were ordered for the cathedral’s 850th birthday — to replace the discordant “ding dang” of the previous four 19th century chimes. After the originals bells — including the original Mary — were destroyed in the French Revolution, the replacements were widely said to be France’s most out-of-tune church bells. There’s some irony that in Victor Hugo’s classic novel “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” the solitary bellringer Quasimodo was deaf.

PARIS (AP) — The cathedral of Notre Dame — French for “our lady” — has finally got the prima donna worthy of its name. Weighing in at six and a half tons or 6,000 kilograms of glistening bronze, this lady is no ordinary person: she's a bell named Mary. Mary is in fact the largest — and loudest — of nine new, gargantuan Notre Dame bells being blessed Saturday in the cathedral’s nave by Archbishop Andre Armand Vingt-Trois.

Dear Annie: This is in response to "Tired in Rural Oregon," whose kids are slobs and whose husband doesn't care. I told my kids if they didn't pick up their messes, I would hire a "maid." One day, they came home to a clean, organized house. I said the "maid" had come. When I handed out my children's allowance for the week, I took back the money it cost to hire the "maid." I then told them that the "maid" was going to the mall to buy herself something really nice. I came home with a new top and thanked my kids for making the "maid" so happy. From then on, I just had to remind my kids that if they didn't pick up after themselves, I would hire the "maid" again. — Honolulu Housewife Dear Honolulu: We love it. Here's more: From Louisiana: My psychologist said, "You teach people how to treat you." This starts when your children are born. A parent has to tolerate poor behavior from the beginning, or their children would not expect to get away with such deplorable actions. Illinois: Nagging is not part of a parent's job. Nagging is a contest of wills. At an early age, parents should instill in the child what is proper and correct. There are developmental tasks that a person learns throughout life, and if those tasks are not learned at the critical points, it becomes much more difficult. The parent is not a buddy, but a person who is due respect and obedience. "Tired" should count the days until the kids are 18, and if they don't shape up, invite them to move out. Georgia: We got our teens to help with chores by making sure their chores were done as a condition for getting to use the car on the weekend. Missouri: When our children reached the age of 10, they were told to pick up their clothes, make their beds, put their dishes in the dishwasher, help set the table and do other tasks. There was no nagging. If my son didn't put his dirty clothes in the hamper, I simply picked them up, folded them and put them back in his drawers. His breakfast was served on the same dishes he had not placed in the dishwasher the night before. If he didn't put his towels in the laundry, they were used until they could walk on their own. Wyoming: I agree that my kids' bedrooms were their responsibility, but I would no longer allow them to trash the common areas. If they left dirty dishes in the living room, I assumed they still wanted them, so I would take the dishes to their rooms. If they left toys or clothes in the common areas, I assumed they didn't care about them and threw them out. I had some major backlash, but it worked. It was a joy to see them scrambling around in the morning cleaning up their stuff before they left for the day. Florida: You were right on when you said to close the kids' bedroom doors and teach them how to do laundry. And enforce the rule that anything left in a common area when you go to bed will be confiscated. They can earn it back by doing chores. New York: Your advice to close the door to a teenager's messy room is totally wrong. I finally had to move out of my home because of my sloppy 22year-old stepdaughter's disrespect and her dad's lack of responsibility. He would ask her to please wash her dishes with hot soapy water, but she would use the stale water left in the basin from the night before, and I would have to rewash them. The only way I knew things were clean was if I washed them. 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:


Reading column helped save dog’s life Dear Heloise: Just wanted to say “Thank you!” I read your column daily in the Amarillo (Texas) Globe-News, and in a past column, you suggested adopting shelter dogs. My husband and I recently adopted a 10-year-old poodle mix from our local shelter; she is absolutely the sweetest dog we have ever had. The day we adopted Molly May was to be her last day in the shelter, and I am so glad we were able to save a doggie life. Please keep asking your readers to check out their local shelters to adopt and to spay or neuter their pets.

Hints from Heloise Columnist Thank you for a wonderful column, and keep up the good work. — Emily Sargent, Borger, Texas HOMEMADE COFFEE RECIPES Dear Heloise: You have published recipes for homemade specialty coffees. I love to make them in the winter,

but I have lost my recipes. I would love to make some for my co-workers. Would you please reprint a recipe? I read you every day in the (Salem, Ore.)Statesman Journal. Love the hints. — Patty Allen, via email I’m glad you enjoy the coffee recipes. One of my favorites is Heloise’s Chocolate Extract Coffee. It is easy to make. Here’s how: For 1 cup of coffee, add a couple of drops of chocolate extract to taste. For 8 cups, add 1/2 teaspoon extract to the pot. For 24 cups, add about 1 1/2 teaspoons.

You also can use other extracts to flavor your coffee. Try vanilla, almond, peppermint or your favorite flavor. For other coffee blends, like mocha, Vienna or spiced coffee, order my pamphlet by sending $3 and a long, selfaddressed, stamped (66 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Coffee, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Did you know that you can make iced cappuccino by pouring one shot of freshly brewed espresso over ice and adding 3 ounces of cold milk? Spoon milk on top to create a layer of foam. Sweeten to your taste. — Heloise



Saturday, February 9, 2013











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Optimism is a good thing, but realism is necessary as well. Try to find a happy balance between these two qualities today. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) All group activities will be unusually enthusiastic and boisterous today. Be careful about overdoing something or exhorting others to go too far. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your ambition knows no bounds today. Nevertheless, if you’re over the top, you might threaten others, especially a boss or supervisor. Think before you speak and act so that you have no regrets later. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You’re very excited about travel plans or something having to do with publishing, the media, medicine and the law. Others are equally excited about taking a course or pursuing higher education. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) If you have to share something with someone today, don’t give away the farm. In a magnanimous gesture, you might part with more than you really want to let go. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You will attract people to you today who are exuberant and perhaps even overbearing. How do you respond? Do you meet them in kind, or just step aside and let all this wind swoosh by? LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You can get an enormous amount done at work today, because you’re enthusiastic, energetic and optimistic. Others will follow your lead. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a great day for those of you who participate or are involved in sports, because you’re willing to try anything. If you’re on vacation, you’ll be very adventurous. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You’ve got big ideas about improvements that you want to introduce at home or perhaps to your family dynamic. Just be careful not to bite off more than you can chew. (And you can chew a lot.) CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Don’t make promises you cannot keep later just because you’re enthusiastic today. This is not something you generally do, but today it’s a possibility. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Be careful in financial matters. Although this is a good day for business and commerce, things might look rosier than they actually are. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You are enthusiastic about life today. Whatever you do, you will do it big! You also might influence others as well. YOU BORN TODAY You have a powerful influence on others. You touch their emotions. In fact, you often are at the center of attention because you are self-confident and hardworking. You feel a responsibility to others at a universal level. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for the past nine years will diminish or end to make room for something new.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Today is Saturday, Feb. 9, the 40th day of 2013. There are 325 days left in the year. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highlight in History: On Feb. 9, 1943, the World War II battle of Guadalcanal in the southwest Pacific ended with an Allied victory over Japanese forces. On this date: In 1825, the House of Representatives elected John Quincy Adams president after

no candidate received a majority of electoral votes. In 1861, Jefferson Davis was elected provisional president of the Confederate States of America at a congress held in Montgomery, Ala. In 1870, the U.S. Weather Bureau was established. In 1942, daylight-saving â&#x20AC;&#x153;War Timeâ&#x20AC;? went into effect in the United States, with clocks turned one hour forward. In 1950, in a speech in Wheeling, W.Va., Sen. Joseph

McCarthy, R-Wis., charged the State Department was riddled with Communists. In 1963, the Boeing 727 went on its first-ever flight as it took off from Renton, Wash. In 1964, The Beatles made their first live American television appearance on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ed Sullivan Show,â&#x20AC;? broadcast from New York on CBS. In 1971, the crew of Apollo 14 returned to Earth after manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third landing on the moon.

Snowstorm hits NYC, Boston; 1 to 3 feet feared BOSTON (AP) A storm that forecasters warned could be a blizzard for the history books began clobbering the New York-to-Boston corridor Friday, grounding flights, closing workplaces and sending people rushing to get home ahead of a possible 1 to 3 feet of snow. From New Jersey to Maine, shoppers crowded into supermarkets and hardware stores to buy food, snow shovels, flashlights as well as generators something that became a precious commodity after Superstorm Sandy in October. Others gassed up their cars, another lesson learned all too well after Sandy. Across much of New England, schools closed well ahead of the first snowflakes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a storm of major proportions. Stay off the roads. Stay home,â&#x20AC;? said Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. The wind-whipped snow-

storm mercifully arrived at the start of a weekend, which means fewer cars on the road and extra time for sanitation crews to clear the mess before commuters in the New York-to-Boston region of roughly 25 million people have to go back to work. But it could also mean a weekend cooped up indoors. Rainy Neves, a mother of two in Cambridge, Mass., did some last-minute shopping at a grocery store, filling her cart to the brim. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honestly, a lot of junk a lot of quick things you can make just in case lights go out, a lot of snacks to keep the kids busy while theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be inside during the storm, things to sip with my friends, things for movies,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just a whole bunch of things to keep us entertained.â&#x20AC;? In heavily Catholic Boston, the Archdiocese urged parishioners to be prudent about attending

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

TC’s seniors’ night

WHAT’S INSIDE National Football League .....16 Local Sports....................16, 18 Scoreboard........................... 17 Television Schedule..............17

BY COLIN FOSTER Associate Sports Editor When the three-game basketball marathon finally concluded Friday night, Troy Christian students and fans rushed the floor following the Eagle boys’ stunning 61-56 overtime victory over Yellow Springs. But every single team that played Friday had reason to celebrate as the varsity boys, girls and JV boys swept Yellow Springs on Senior Night at Troy Christian High School. Senior Nathan Kirkpatrick — who hit four 3s in the game, including one from half court at the buzzer to end the first —

TROY could barely fight back the tears in a postgame interview standing next to coach Ray Zawadzki. It was the final game at home for Kirkpatrick, Christian Salazar, Matt Coots, Justin Lewis and Scotty Scott — all of whom have been an integral part of Troy Christian’s rise to Metro Buckeye Conference supremacy. “This has been amazing,” Kirkpatrick said. “It’s great to be under such great men like Ray Zawadzki and all of my coaches. When we were down in the end, there was a voice in the back of my head, I think it may have

Bulldogs win again Vikings, Indians, Bees pick up CCC victories Staff Reports MIDDLETOWN — Once Milton-Union got things working on one end, the other was quick to follow. The Bulldogs (13-6, 7-4 Southwestern Buckeye League Buckeye Division) gave up only four points in the second quarter on defense Friday at Madison, fueling their own offense in a 5231 victory.

MIAMI COUNTY “On the defensive end, we did what we had to do,” MiltonUnion coach Rusty Berner said. “And offensively, we got more comfortable as the game wore on. When we played with more energy on the defensive end, that generated some things on offense.” Trevor Klosterman led a trio of Bulldogs in double digits with 17 points, Ben Stelzer added 16 and Caleb Poland scored 15. Milton-Union hosts Franklin Monroe tonight in its Hall of Fame game.

Heartbreaker 16-point Troy lead disappears in loss to Sidney BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor The Troy Trojans have had a number of chances this season to show they’re more than a three-win team. Friday night, they missed out on an opportunity to get their fourth.

Post player Amir Williams of 10thranked Ohio State has no doubt that both his team and No. 1 Indiana will be fired up about losing games coming into their big showdown on Sunday. “Yeah, because it’s a must win for us,” he said, “and it’s a must win for them to challenge for the Big Ten title.” See Page 16.

Cause of Super Bowl power outage found NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The company that supplied electricity to the Super Bowl took the blame Friday for the power outage that brought the big game to a halt, explaining that a device designed specifically to prevent a blackout failed and plunged the game into darkness for more than half an hour. The device called a relay had been installed to protect the Superdome from problems in the cable that

links the company’s incoming power line with the lines that run into the stadium. Officials from Entergy New Orleans said the relay functioned with no problems during January’s Sugar Bowl and other earlier events. It has been removed and will be replaced. All systems at the Superdome are now working, and the dome was to host a major Mardi Gras

event Saturday night, said Doug Thornton, an executive with SMG, the company that manages the stadium for the state. The device was installed in a building near the stadium known as “the vault,” which receives a line directly from a nearby Entergy substation. Once the line reaches the vault, it splits into two cables that go into the Superdome. Sunday’s power failure cut lights to about half of

the stadium for 34 minutes, halting play between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. Not long after Friday’s announcement, the manufacturer of the relay, Chicago-based S&C Electric Co., released a statement saying that the blackout occurred because system operators had put the device’s so-called trip setting too low to allow the device to handle the incoming electric load.

The statement did not name the operators, but the equipment was owned and installed by Entergy New Orleans, a subsidiary of New Orleans-based Entergy Corp. “If higher settings had been applied, the equipment would not have disconnected the power,” said Michael J.S. Edmonds, vice president of strategic solutions for S&C. In a follow-up statement, Entergy said that tests con-

ducted by S&C and Entergy on the two relays at the Superdome showed that one worked as expected, the other did not. Entergy spokesman Mike Burns said both relays had the same trip setting. Entergy’s announcement came shortly before company officials were to answer questions about the outage from a committee of the City Council, which is the regulatory body for the company.

Must-win for OSU, IU

Snedeker in contention again

Buckeyes, Hoosiers both coming off of tough losses COLUMBUS (AP) — Post player Amir Williams of 10th-ranked Ohio State has no doubt that both his team and No. 1 Indiana will be fired up about losing games coming into their big showdown on Sunday. “Yeah, because it’s a must win for us,” he said, “and it’s a must win for them to challenge for the Big Ten title.” The Hoosiers get little time to lick their wounds after a stunning 74-72 at Illinois on loss Thursday night in which they were outscored 13-2 down the stretch and lost when Tyler Griffey sank an unguarded layup at the buzzer. “We didn’t put them away when we had the opportunities,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said. What troubled center Cody Zeller was that the Hoosiers seemed to let up. “They made the last big plays down the stretch and we kind of relaxed,” he said. Ohio State certainly is expecting the Hoosiers (20-3, 8-2 Big Ten) to rebound from the defeat. “I’m pretty sure now they’re thinking like, ‘We had a tough loss against Illinois, but now we’ve got to get this game against Ohio State,’” said Buckeyes swingman Deshaun Thomas, the Big Ten’s leading scorer. Muddying the view even more is that Ohio State (17-5, 7-3) also is trying to put a loss in the rearview mirror. The 10th-ranked Buckeyes are coming off a 76-74 overtime loss at No. 3 Michigan on Tuesday, falling short on a chance to tie when Aaron Craft’s last-second layup was blocked by Tim Hardaway Jr. “We can’t really dwell on that loss,” Thomas said. “All we’ve got to do is keep on moving forward.” Indiana is thinking the same thing. Even though the Hoosiers’ grip on No. 1 is already shaky because of the Illinois loss, the Buckeyes have a solid mark against the nation’s top team in the Associated Press poll. They are 8-10 all-time


Ohio State center Amir Williams (23) knocks the ball away from Michigan guard Tim Hardaway Jr. (10) during the second half at the Crisler Center in Ann Arbor, Mich. Tuesday. Michigan won 76-74 in overtime. against No. 1s, including some of the most memorable wins in school history. The last two times the Buckeyes have met a topranked Indiana team (1983, 1993), they’ve pulled off the upset. Matta, who has a career mark of 3-3 in games against No. 1s, said going up against the top dog in the poll really isn’t that big a deal. “We’ve always tried to be, hey, it’s the next opponent because that doesn’t get you anything in terms of you still have to play the games, you don’t get a head start or a point advantage,” he said. “We’ve been very fortunate to be in that position (ranked No. 1) a lot in our time here and I’ve always thought our guys have handled it pretty well.” The game also has huge importance in the Big Ten standings.

With almost every contender hitting the road for multiple games still, Indiana, Michigan and Michigan State share the top spot at 8-2, with Ohio State and Wisconsin a game back. The Buckeyes are worried about matching up with the Hoosiers. They’ll have trouble putting a big man on Zeller who can keep up with the mobile, hard-working focus of the Indiana offense. Williams, coming off a solid game at Michigan, will draw that assignment. “That guy runs the floor,” he said of Zeller. “He’s probably one of the best in college basketball at running the floor in transition. That’s one thing I’ve got to key on.” The Buckeyes also must find a way to slow the Hoosiers when they want to run and prevent the Hoosiers from filling

the baskets with 3-pointers. With Kansas losing at home to Oklahoma State last Saturday and then being shocked on Wednesday night TCU, which came in winless in the Big 12, Ohio State now has gone longer than any other Division I program in the country without back-to-back losses 121 games. After losing at Michigan, the Buckeyes know that mark is in jeopardy. “When we lost one at Michigan, we were like, ‘We hold the record. We never lose twice (in a row),’” Thomas said. “This program takes great pride in that. That’s what Ohio State basketball is all about. If we get knocked off, what do we do next? “We pick up and we keep fighting.”

Vikings (12-6, 7-3 Cross County Conference), who trailed 23-17 at halftime but outscored the Railroaders 18-8 in the third to take control. Josh Hoelscher scored 13 of his team-high 14 points for Bradford (3-16, 1-9) in the first half. “The third quarter was very decisive,” Miami East coach Allen Mack said. “We were able to limit Hoelscher, who had been effective around the basket in the first half. We limited his touches in the second half.” Miami East hosts Troy tonight.

defended real well and we controlled the boards at both ends. I’m really, really proud of the way the kids played. “We’re starting to get something going here. It may be a little late, but we’re going to see where it goes.” David Brauer scored a game-high 21 points for the Indians (3-16), while Daniel Vance added 17 and Bobby Gerodimos added 14.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Brandt Snedeker goes into the weekend at Pebble Beach with another chance to win, this time without golf’s biggest stars in his way. Snedeker played bogeyfree at tough Spyglass Hill on Friday for a 4-under 68, giving him a share of the lead with Ted Potter Jr. in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Potter threeputted his final hole at Monterey Peninsula for a 67. Hunter Mahan was among those one shot behind. With one more round before everyone has played all three courses in the rotation, the leaderboard was a big traffic jam. Three dozen players were within five shots of the lead. Snedeker, who was at 8under 134, felt he was at an advantage because he goes to Pebble Beach for the final two rounds. And there’s one other edge for his psyche Tiger Woods isn’t playing, and defending champion Phil Mickelson is six shots behind. Snedeker has played so well this year that he is leading the FedEx (NYSE:FDX) Cup standings without having won. He was runner-up the last two weeks four shots behind Woods at Torrey Pines, and then four shots behind Mickelson in the Phoenix Open. “Keep running into guys who are or who are going to be in the Hall of Fame,” Snedeker said at the start of the week. Mickelson, going after a record-tying fifth win in the event, was easing his way into contention until he made three bogeys in a four-hole stretch along the ocean at Spyglass Hill for a 71. Snedeker made it look easy at Spyglass, even though the day began in rugged conditions with a light rain and temperatures in the low 40s. He hit a towering 8-iron on the downhill, par-3 12th hole that plopped 3 feet next to the cup for his first birdie. He added a pair of simple up-and-down birdies on the par 5s and then closed out a solid day with an 8-iron to 5 feet on the eighth hole.

Snedeker sees the upside of his two secondplace finishes: At least he’s giving himself a chance. “That’s how you win out here,” he said. “You keep putting yourself in position, and the more times you do, the more success you’re going to have. … I’m doing a better job this week of making my way around the golf courses and not putting myself in bad spots and getting out of tough situations very quickly.” His goal for the last two days? “Not do anything stupid,” he said. “Unfortunately, I don’t do it very often.” Potter remains somewhat of a mystery. He won last year in his rookie season at The Greenbrier Classic to claim a peculiar footnote in history the only player to win a PGA Tour event in which Woods and Mickelson missed the cut. Still, his performance has been spotty. Potter missed nine out of the 12 cuts going into The Greenbrier, and then missed four out of nine cuts after his win. “It’s just a funny game like that,” Potter said. “Some weeks you play really well and you get the right kicks and everything goes well. And then there are weeks you can still hit the ball well and get the bad kicks.” It’s been good so far on the Monterey Peninsula, which has been graced with surprisingly good weather. Even though the cold rain finally arrived, it didn’t last long. The sun broke through about three hours into the round, and by late afternoon, the Pacific was gleaming. Fredrik Jacobson had the low round of the day, a 66 at Pebble Beach that put him in the group at 7 under with Mahan, John Merrick and Patrick Reed. Saturday’s forecast is for more sunshine, giving those in the Northeast who are snowed in some pretty pictures on television. Snedeker is part of the celebrity rotation, meaning he will join the circus Bill Murray, Ray Romano and the rest of their Hollywood crew, along with star power from other sports such as Tony Romo, Matt Cain and even San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh.

Troy Christian’s Meredith Haddad drives past a Yellow Springs defender Friday. ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 been God, telling me we were going to win. “I didn’t give up, and my teammates and my teammates didn’t give up on me. I just love my team, my coaches and my guys.” Following the interview, coach Zawadzki and Kirkpatrick shared a hug, which was well-warranted after the battle the Eagles had been through. The Eagles and Bulldogs were deadlocked at 38 entering the final quarter, but back-to-back buckets by Wesley Moultri put Springs up 44-40 with three minutes left to play. Moments later, Troy Christian found itself down by six. But the Eagles didn’t panic. Grant Zawadzki found Salazar for a layup, then Grant Zawadzki knocked down a triple with 17 seconds left to pull his team within one. After Yellow Springs missed the front end of a one-and-one, Salazar was fouled on a back-door lob play, but made one out of two to force OT. And once overtime hit, it was all Troy Christian. The Eagles (18-2, 10-0) made 10 out of 14 free throws in the extra period to seal the deal. The win keeps Troy Christian unbeaten in MBC play with two more conference games left. Grant Zawadzki hit 14 free throws and led the team in scoring with 20. Salazar (18 points) and Kirkpatrick (15) were the only two Eagles to score in the third quarter. Still, the senior duo managed to outscore Yellow Springs 1614 during that stretch. “Yellow Springs really thought that if they won tonight and won on Friday that would have a shot at winning the conference,” Ray Zawadzki said. “This was a big game for my seniors. We set tons of school record tonight. (Our) 18 wins in a season is the most ever, undefeated at home — first time ever — 10 consecutive wins is the most in school history. That’s what we have going right now.” But the boys weren’t the only ones making history Friday. The girls secured at least a share of the Metro

Troy Christian’s Nathan Kirkpatrick gets around the Yellow Springs defense Friday night. Buckeye Conference title with a 34-22 victory. Troy Christian’s lead had been shrunk down to four by the beginning of the final period, but the Eagles rallied off a 10-0 run to take control of the game for good. It was the first time since 2009 that the Eagles have won or split a league championship. “They were 10-1 in MBC play, we were 9-1,” Troy Christian girls coach Dick Steineman. “They beat us by seven at Yellow Springs on Jan. 3. The girls were ready to play on Senior Night. They were really jacked up. I thought the girls really stepped it up defensively.” Troy Christian (18-3, 101) had trouble scoring early on as it was held scoreless for the first four minutes of the game. Lydia Demmitt scored the Eagles’ first field goal moments later, which was followed by consecutive baskets by Sarah Campbell. Troy Christian led 6-4 after the first.

Trojans ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Miller said. “We had trouble handling their pressure down the stretch. Our kids played hard, but they got after us on the defensive end.” And when Sidney forced turnovers, Tyree Manley cashed in. Manley scored 11 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter, including a pair of 3s and the eventual game-winning free throws with 16.9 seconds left. “We keep Manley quiet all night, then he stepped it up in the fourth. Eleven of their 19 points in the fourth,” Miller said. “We had plenty of opportunities to put the game away. But we went 6 for 14 from the line in the game and gave up 19 points in the fourth. That’s not a good combination.” Tyler Miller lit up the Jackets for the second time this season, hitting four 3pointers, scoring a gamehigh 19 points and grabbing 12 rebounds. And after Connor Super converted a layup on a steal early in the fourth, the Trojans led 51-35 and looked poised to coast to the win. But Sidney (3-17, 3-6 Greater Western Ohio North Conference Division) scored the next 16 points to tie the game. A 3 by Manley made it 51-49, then a steal-and-layup by Manley tied the game — but Troy’s Jalen Nelson caught the Jackets celebrating, beat them back down the floor, hit a layup and drew an intentional foul to put Troy back on top. The Trojans missed both free throws, but Miller hit a jumper on the ensuing possession to make it a four-point game. Manley buried a 3 to

close the gap to one, and Troy committed an overand-back violation with 19.3 seconds left. Manley then drew a foul at midcourt and hit both free throws to put Sidney on top, and the Trojans missed a desperation attempt at the last second to close the game. Nelson added 12 points for Troy, Tre Hudson finished with nine, Luke Manis had six and Dylan Cascaden had five points and eight assists. James Daniel led Sidney with 16 points and Conner Echols added 10 as the Jackets swept the season series — Sidney defeated Troy in overtime at home in the first meeting. Unlike Troy’s last two losses, though, the Trojans will be right back on the court tonight at Miami East. “We go to Miami East, and we’ve got a lot of preparing to do for that,” Miller said. “It’s always a tough one there, a little backyard rivalry, so to speak.” And a chance to forget the immediate past.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland Cavaliers are playing better and having fun. Things are quite different for the Orlando Magic. Irving scored 24 points and Cleveland defeated Orlando 119-108 on Friday night, sending the Magic to their 12th straight loss. The Cavaliers, who tied a season high with their third straight victory, have won six of eight and are 1111 since Dec. 22. Irving thinks the team’s confidence has reached a season high. “It’s fun playing out there,” he said. “It’s fun
