their child’s education and that’s open enrollment,” McBride said. McBride said EdChoice would deplete state funding from small schools like Newton where open enrollment is at an all-time high for the district. “I have a problem with public money being used to fund private education. It’s called private school for a reason, because it utilizes private funding.” Troy City Schools Superintendent Eric Herman agrees. “It could be devastating to school districts,” Herman said. “If the state is taking away money from public schools, it could be devastating.” Kasich also addressed Ohio’s teacher evaluation initiative, which McBride said he could eliminate with one simple solution. “I’m very proud of the fact that we did teacher evaluation. We had 19 meetings across the state; 1,400 emails from teachers. You know what teachers are worried about? They

WASHINGTON (AP) — New orders from the Pentagon: The military on Thursday formally opened thousands of jobs to women in units that are closer to the front lines than ever before, reflecting what’s already been going on as female American soldiers fight and die next to their male comrades. The new rules, affecting thousands of jobs, will break down more of the official barriers that have restricted the military positions women can take. They’re being sent to Congress, and if lawmakers take no action after 30 work days the policy will take effect. The changes still aren’t coming fast enough for some in Congress or the military. They noted that the rules still ban women from serving as infantry, armor and special operations forces, which are considered the most dangerous combat jobs. Instead, they reflect what’s been happening for the past 10 years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan. They will allow women to perform many of the jobs they are already doing but in smaller units, closer to the fighting and once considered too dangerous. “Unfortunately, the conclusions of this report do not go far enough,” said Rep. Loretta Sanchez, a member of the House Armed Services Committee who started a caucus on women in the military. Sanchez said she was “very disappointed” that the Defense Department didn’t lift the ban on combat jobs for women. Because service in combat gives troops an advantage for promotions and job opportunities, it has been more difficult for women to move to the higher ranks. A 1994 Pentagon policy bans women from being assigned to ground combat units below the brigade level. A brigade is roughly 3,500 troops split into several battalions of about 800 soldiers each. Historically, brigades were based farther from the front lines and they often include top command and support staff, while battalions now open to women are usually in closer contact with the enemy.

Chaos in Syrian city continues Between blasts of rockets and mortar fire, Syrians used loudspeakers to call for blood donations and medical supplies Thursday in the stricken city of Homs, where a weeklong government offensive has created a deepening humanitarian crisis. Government forces are trying to crush pockets of violent resistance in Homs, the epicenter of an 11-month-old uprising that has brought the country ever closer to civil war. See Page 5.

School officials weigh in on speech BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer myingst@tdnpublishing.com Local superintendents said they still believe in local control of the state’s public schools in response to Ohio Governor John Kasich’s State of the State address on Tuesday. Kasich touted his EdChoice initiative expansion, teacher performance evaluation and the state’s graduation rate during his annual “State of the State” address Tuesday at Wells Academy, a top performing elementary school in Steubenville. Miami County Education Center’s Superintendent Tom Dunn said Kasich’s plan to push more unfunded mandates gets in the way of many local school’s primary agenda of educating children. “During a meeting of local superintendents (Wednesday) we spent more time talking about mandates and paper work than talking about what we are all here to do — that’s educating children,” Dunn said. “And that is just sad.”

MIAMI COUNTY One initiative Kasich addressed was the EdChoice voucher increase. “When the schools aren’t working and they’re under-performing, let our children go. We went in this state from 13,000 vouchers to 30,000 families who can have more choice and more freedom, to next year 60,000 vouchers,” Kasich said Tuesday. “I don’t know that exists anywhere in America. And it’s going to give our poor people a chance.” The EdChoice initiative could potentially allow parents of children living in under-performing school districts to send their children to private schools. Pat McBride, superintendent of Newton Local School is not a proponent of the EdChoice initiative and said the “EdChoice” vouchers would use public funds to fund parochial and private schools, taking away funding from public schools such as Newton. “Parents already have a choice in

don’t mind being evaluated, but what they don’t want is to get the short end of the stick,” Kasich said Tuesday. “They want to make sure there are multiple ways for them to be measured. We listened to them. It’s exactly what we did. We took this framework to the State Board of Education.” “Get rid of tenure in contracts,” McBride said in response to the teacher evaluations. “We all know which teachers are good and in a few cases there are some bad ones, but if we got rid of tenure and teachers showed up and did their best each and every day like we do here every day, then teacher evaluations would not be a necessity.” Herman said Troy City Schools is working on its teacher evaluation program.

“We are trying to work on it,” Herman said. “We are waiting for it to be developed.” Another area Kasich addressed was the graduation rate in Ohio. “Graduation rates in Ohio: 80 percent statewide. Where do the other 20 percent go? Urban areas, urban areas, it’s a 65 percent

graduation rate,” Kasich said. “Thirty-five percent don’t get out of high school? It might have been OK back in the days of my Uncle George where you can go get a job in a steel mill. That doesn’t work like that, a 35 percent dropout rate in our urban schools?” McBride said Newton High

School has achieved a graduation rate of 100 percent for three years, something he attributes to the community, not the state. “Our graduation rate is 100 percent because we have parents in our community that value education,” McBride said. “We hold our students accountable and we take pride in the fact that we see that each and every student graduates because that is what we expect from our community.” Herman said Troy High School students are held accountable for their graduation rate. Herman said Troy High School achieved a 98 percent graduation rate in 2011, above the state average of 80 percent. “We work with our kids,” Herman said. “We sit down and have a graduation plan and if they fall behind, we work with them and stay on top of it.”

• CONTINUED FROM A1 In the past decade, the necessities of war propelled women into jobs such as medics, military police and intelligence officers, and they were sometimes attached but not formally assigned to battalions. So while a woman couldn’t be assigned as an infantryman in a battalion going out on patrol, she could fly the helicopter supporting the unit, or move in to provide medical aid if troops were injured. The new rules will formally allow women to work in those jobs at the battalion level. And they will also open up a number of Army jobs that had been closed to women, such as tank and artillery mechanics or rocket launcher crew members. While the rules won’t open up the Navy SEALs or the Army Delta Force to women, some defense officials have said the military may eventually be open to that. Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates told North Carolina ROTC students in 2010 that at some point there would be careful steps in that direction. Already, however, women are serving with special operations forces in support jobs such as intelligence analysts, legal specialists, builders and administration assistants. Vee Penrod, the deputy assistant undersecretary of defense for military personnel, said officials will continue to look for other possible changes, but this was a good start. “We’re at war, a lot of things going on, and it may appear too slow to some, but I see this as a great step forward,” said Penrod,

direction,” said Anu Bhagwati, former Marine Corps captain and executive director of the network. However, she said it was “extremely disappointing” that the ban would continue on women becoming infantry. “To continue such a ban is to ignore the talents and leadership that women bring to the military, and it further penalizes servicewomen by denying them the opportunity for future promotions and assignments that are primarily given to personnel from combat arms specialties.” The Pentagon report, which initially was due out last spring, comes nearly a year after an independent panel called for the military to lift its ban on women in combat. The Military Leadership Diversity Commission said the Pentagon should phase in additional career fields and units that women could be assigned to.

and blurred, and insurgents can be around every corner, have made it almost impossible to keep women clear of combat. Some 280,000 women have been sent to Iraq, Afghanistan or to jobs in neighboring nations in support of the wars, roughly 12 percent of all those who have served there. Of the more than 6,300 who have been killed, 144 were women. Still, not everyone likes the changes. Retired Army Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis said he doesn’t see how the new policy helps national security. “This does not dismiss the sexual tension issues, nor does it dismiss the differences physiologically between men and women in terms of cardiovascular fitness,” Maginnis said. The Service Women’s Action Network’s response was mixed. “On the plus side, this is a huge step in the right

Edison to host technology and engineering information session For the Troy Daily News

PIQUA

High school students or recent graduates who are interested in pursuing a career in information technology, computer science and engineering are invited to attend the Information Night at Edison Community College Feb. 16. Students, graduates and parents who attend will have the opportunity to meet with Edison faculty and admissions members, tour labs and speak with some of the area’s industry partners. “Some of our local industry partners will be available to talk to students and their parents about opportunities available in our area,” said Patti Ross, dean of Information Technology and Engineering. “These industries often hire our student interns as part of their associate’s degree programs.” In addition to meeting with industry partners, attendees will have the chance to learn about Edison’s 2+2 agreements with some of the region’s top four-year universities — such as the University of Dayton, Miami University and the University

of Cincinnati. “University partners will be on hand to talk to students about our 2+2 agreements that provide students a clear pathway from their associate’s degree at Edison to attainment of their fouryear degree in IT, computer science or engineering,” Ross said. “For many families, this is a very cost effective option because students are able to earn their first two years at Edison at a much lower tuition rate and then transfer directly into the four-year program at the school of their choice.” The information session will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. in the Emerson Center of the Piqua Campus. Students and parents who are interested are invited to contact Kristi Wildermuth at 778-7865 or kwildermuth@edisonohio.edu for more information. In addition to the evening’s featured events, there will be a drawing for a $200 debit card that will be awarded at the end of the session.

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

EDITORIAL ROUNDUPS International Herald Tribune, Paris, on the EU summit: European Union leaders failed on Jan. 30 to move forward on their most urgent task: increasing the bailout fund to protect Europe’s ailing economies from defaulting on their bonds. Instead, leaders of 25 of 27 European countries agreed to sign a new fiscal compact that will legally restrict them from fighting recessions with robust fiscal stimulus. Most economists outside the euro zone consider this approach a dangerous one. Those countries account for more than 20 percent of the world’s economy. Condemning them to longer and deeper recessions will drag down economies elsewhere that depend on trade, from the United States to China. Without a bigger bailout fund, investors will likely keep betting against weakened economies like Italy and Spain, pushing up their interest costs and, consequently, adding to their deficits. Nevertheless, Europe’s leaders deferred action on more money until March. Market speculators may not agree to wait. The world has gotten used to failed European summit meetings. What is particularly disheartening about this one is that some European leaders seem to believe they succeeded. “Considering the time frame, this was a real masterpiece,” Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany said of the new fiscal pact. It was only in December that she made clear to other European leaders that adopting a fiscal pact to balance their budgets and reduce debt was an essential precondition for Germany to continuing to pay its fair share of European debt-relief costs. The fiscal pact imposes substantial fines on any signatory nation whose deficit averages more than 0.5 percent of gross domestic product over a full economic cycle, a condition the United States would have had great trouble meeting over the past three decades. … Poor German leadership in this crisis has exacted an increasing economic and social price from Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Belgium and France. The longer Germany insists on putting fiscal austerity ahead of growth, the more likely it becomes that Germany, too, will suffer economic pain. The Asahi Shimbun, Tokyo, on Japan’s shrinking population: New forecasts about Japan’s population for the period until 2060, released on Jan. 30 by the National Institute of Population and Social Security Research, paint a gloomy picture of the nation’s demographic future. The speed at which the Japanese population will shrink in the coming decades is simply stunning. The number of Japanese will decrease by 41.32 million in the next half century to about two-thirds of the current figure, according to the forecasts. … Can we change the predicted demographic future of our country? If the fertility rate gradually rises until it stabilizes at 2.07 in 2030 onward, the percentage of senior citizens will peak in the 2040s in the 30 to 35 percent range, and then fall before stabilizing around 25 percent range over the long term, according to an estimate by Shigesato Takahashi, deputy director-general of the institute. That is a tough target to achieve. But growth of the child population would certainly stabilize the nation’s demographic structure. There is a huge difference in vitality between a society where one in every 2.5 members is an elderly citizen and a society where the ratio is one in every four. What is especially notable is the fact that the number of women giving birth to a child at the age of 30 or older is larger than the number having a baby at younger than 30. The number of babies born to a mother aged 35 or older has increased by about 130 percent from 15 years ago. … Meanwhile, already married couples are not expecting to have the number of children they actually want. Behind these facts is widespread anxiety about economic future. From this point of view, policy efforts to improve the employment situation of young Japanese are very important. Each one of us Japanese living today is responsible to do what he or she can to change our society’s demographic future for the better.

DOONESBURY

All’s fair in love and war … or is it? Troy Troy Whoever said “All’s fair in love and war” well, never had to date me. OK, I’m getting a little ahead of myself. Truth be told, this phrase can be traced back to the Renaissance English poet and playwright John Lyly’s ‘Euphues’ (1578). Originally, the quote was “The rules of fair play do not apply in love and war.” Anyways, Mr. Lyly probably didn’t have this small town reporter in mind when he coined this phrase that has lasted more than 400 years. Of course, a man had to say this, and he probably overheard a woman say it somewhere, but I digress. With next week’s Valentine’s Day around the corner, I thought I’d take a twist on this Hallmark holiday. If it were up to me, I would celebrate Valentine’s Day as a combination of both Cinco de Mayo and Dia De Muertos or “Mexican Day of the Dead” — a day of mourning and booze. OK, all kidding aside, (well except for the booze part) I won’t be mourning much of anything because each one has taught me something valuable in life. So with that, I’ll begin my “Ghosts of Boyfriends Past” and my first victim: 1. The Boyfriend that refused to

Melanie Yingst Troy Daily News Executive Editor go to the Fair: There’s one thing I do love and that’s the Miami County Fair. Lyly’s “All is fair in love and war” reminds me of a teacher I once had who constantly reminded us that “Fair is five days in August,” basically reiterating the same concept that nothing in life is fair. Believe it or not, I once had a boyfriend who never went to “The Fair.” Once this revelation was discovered, I should have known then, it would never last. Now, I’m one to be open to new experiences, but this fella flat out refused to go to the fair with me, even to get a milkshake. The reason? He didn’t want to get his $300 basketball shoes dirty. I kid you not folks. OK, so I don’t drive a 4-by-4 pick-up truck and I don’t wear a belt buckle, but who

doesn’t enjoy a milkshake? Yet, from this relationship I learned that if you have to beg someone into getting a hand-blended milkshake and they still refuse, there’s something wrong with that person. And, well, I was right. Cheers to you and your clean basketball shoes my old friend. Speaking of belt buckles and pick-up trucks … 2. The Boyfriend that thought he was George Strait: There’s one thing I do love and that’s country music. But I had one boyfriend in college that actually dressed like a country music singer, namely his favorite actor and singer, George Strait. He wore Wranglers, cowboy hat, starched button-down shirt and boots every day. The whole get-up. I once watched Strait’s movie “Pure Country” for 48 hours strait, I mean straight. He did teach me to add sugar to the spaghetti sauce — he was Italian. That’s right, an Italian cowboy. An Italian cowboy airplane pilot. Can it get anymore egotistical than that? The funny part was, the only farm animal Italian Cowboy Pilot ever had was his pet Vietnamese pot bellied pig. Yet, I finally grew tired of “Adalida” playing over and over until “Amarillo by Morning” and so “This is where the

Cowboy Rides Away.” Cheers to you and your pot-bellied pig farm Cowboy Pilot. Speaking of riding far, far, far away … 3. The Boyfriends that fled the state of Ohio: Governor John Kasich may blame the lackluster economy for the reason young people are fleeing the Buckeye state at an alarming rate. But in reality, he could probably hold me, your favorite columnist, accountable for 85 percent of the 30-year-old male population fleeing Ohio from 1999 to the present. That’s right, one ex fled to California, one moved to the beaches of South Carolina and another to fled to fields of Oklahoma. The others? Well, the rest all entered into a victim witness protection program and efforts to locate them were unsuccessful. And all my former Valentines all did this pretty much immediately after we terminated our relationship. Sorry about that Kasich. Oh, and sorry FBI. So this Valentine’s Day, I’ll look back on the Ghosts of Boyfriends Past and enjoy a margarita — all by myself, in the peace and quiet of my own little war zone. Cheers to you and your loved ones!

OBITUARIES

Syrian rebels are seen in Idlib, Syria, Thursday.

Suffering deepens in bombarded Syrian city BEIRUT (AP) — Between blasts of rockets and mortar fire, Syrians used loudspeakers to call for blood donations and medical supplies Thursday in the stricken city of Homs, where a weeklong government offensive has created a deepening humanitarian crisis. Government forces are trying to crush pockets of violent resistance in Homs, the epicenter of an 11-month-old uprising that has brought the country ever closer to civil war. The intense shelling in restive neighborhoods such as Baba Amr has made it difficult to get medicine and care to the wounded, and some areas have been without electricity for days, activists say. “Snipers are on all the roofs in Baba Amr, shooting at people,” Abu Muhammad Ibrahim, an activist in Homs, told The Associated Press by phone. “Anything that moves, even a bird, is targeted. Life is completely cut off. It’s a city of ghosts,” he added. As he spoke, explosions could be heard in the background. “The bombardment has not eased, day or night,” he said, asking to be identified by his nickname for fear of reprisals. “Do you hear the sound of the rockets? Children have been wounded, elderly with extreme injuries.” Hundreds of people are believed to have been killed since early Saturday in the heaviest attack the city has endured since the uprising began in March, activists said. “This brutal assault on residential neighborhoods shows the Syrian authorities’ contempt for the lives of their citizens in Homs,” said Anna Neistat, associate emergencies director at Human Rights Watch.

“Those responsible for such horrific attacks will have to answer for them.” Human Rights Watch also said eyewitness accounts, as well as video reviewed by the group’s arms experts, suggest Syrian government forces are using longrange, indirect fire weapons such as mortars. Such weapons “are inherently indiscriminate when fired into densely populated areas,” the New York-based group said. The wounded have overwhelmed makeshift hospitals and clinics, and there were growing concerns that the lockeddown city could soon run out of supplies. “There is medicine in the pharmacies, but getting it to the field clinics is very difficult. They can’t get the medicine to the wounded,” Mohammed Saleh, a Syriabased activist, told the AP by telephone. Baba Amr, he said, has been without electricity since Saturday. The assault on Homs began after reports that army defectors and other armed opponents of President Bashar Assad were setting up their own checkpoints and taking control of some areas. The reports could not be confirmed. But the city is the capital of Syria’s largest province, stretching from the Lebanese border to the Iraqi frontier. If rebel forces keep gaining ground there, some believe they could ultimately carve out a zone akin to Benghazi in eastern Libya, where rebels launched their successful uprising against Moammar Gadhafi last year. Saleh said most of the government attacks have been “bombardment from a distance,” with regime forces keeping armored vehicles out of the neighborhoods.

10 states fleeing from education law

We’ve offered every state the same deal. If you’re willing to set higher, more honest standards than the ones that were set by No Child Left Behind, then we’re going to give you the flexibility to meet those standards. — Barack Obama

doing the worst. Obama said he was acting because Congress had failed to update the law despite widespread agreement it needs to be fixed. “We’ve offered every state the same deal,” Obama said. “If you’re willing to set higher, more honest standards than the ones that were set by No Child Left Behind, then we’re going to give you the flexibility to meet those standards.” Republicans have charged that by granting waivers, Obama was overreaching his authority. The executive action by Obama is one of his most prominent in an ongoing campaign to act on his own where Congress is rebuffing him. Obama called President George W. Bush’s most hyped domestic accomplishment an admirable but flawed effort that hurt students instead of helping them. No Child Left Behind was primarily designed to help the nation’s poor and minority children and was passed a decade ago with widespread bipartisan support. It has been up for renewal since 2007. But lawmakers have been stymied for years by competing priorities, disagreements over how much of a federal role there should be in schools

and, in the recent Congress, partisan gridlock. For all the cheers that states may have about Obama’s action, the move also reflects the sobering reality that the United States is not close to the law’s original goal: getting children to grade level in reading and math. Critics today say the 2014 deadline was unrealistic, the law is too rigid and led to teaching to the test, and too many schools feel they are unfairly labeled as “failures.” Under No Child Left Behind, schools that don’t meet requirements for two years or longer face increasingly tough consequences, including busing children to higher-performing schools, offering tutoring and replacing staff.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Thursday declared that 10 states are free from the No Child Left Behind law, allowing them to scrap some of the most rigorous and unpopular mandates in American education. In exchange, the states are promising higher standards and more creative ways to measure what students are learning. “We can combine greater freedom with greater accountability,” Obama said from the White House. Plenty more states are bound to take up him up on the offer. The first 10 states to be declared free from the landmark education law are Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, Oklahoma and Tennessee. The only state that applied for the flexibility and did not get it, New Mexico, is working with the administration to get approval. A total of 28 other states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico have signaled that they, too, plan to flee the law in favor of their own plans. Yet the move is a tacit acknowledgement that the law’s main goal, getting all students up to speed in reading and math by 2014, is not within reach. The states excused from following the law no longer have to meet that deadline. Instead, they had to put forward plans showing they will prepare children for college and careers, set new targets for improving achievement among all students, reward the best performing schools and focus help on the ones

AP MOVIE REVIEWS JOURNEY 2 ‘THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND: There’s little mystery to this island. This 3-D sortof sequel wears its formula-for-dollars purpose with pride, delivering a dash of cinematic nonsense that represents Hollywood calculation at its shrewdest and most shameless. Again poking Jules Verne’s remains with a sharp stick, the producers of the 2008 hit “Journey to the Center of the Earth” present their second modern take on the 19th-century fantasist’s wild stories. And “Mysterious Island” is every bit the amusement park ride cloaked as a movie that the first “Journey” was, the new flick stranding a misfit band of adventurers on Verne’s lost island of freakish creatures. Dwayne Johnson stars this time as stepdad to a youth (Josh Hutcherson, reprising his role from the first movie) whose family has discovered Verne’s sci-fi stories were true. Joining them as they rush from giant lizards and electric eels are Michael Caine, Luis Guzman and Vanessa Hudgens. Director Brad Peyton oversees a collection of impressive but annoying visuals, serving up gimmicky 3-D that’s continually trying to poke things in your eye. PG for some adventure action and brief mild language. 94 minutes. One and a half stars out of four. — David Germain, AP Movie Writer RAMPART: The crazy eyes and idiosyncratic drawl of Woody Harrelson are enough to carry this dirty cop study, but even such powers as those cannot make engaging this weary L.A. noir. Without Harrelson’s inherent intrigue, the heavyhanded provocations of “Rampart” would be difficult to suffer. But Harrelson’s intense and committed performance keeps Oren Moverman’s film moving, even while the grim and overdone story wallows affectedly. Harrelson plays police officer Dave Brown in 1999 Los Angeles, in the notoriously scandal-plagued Rampart division. The film from Moverman (who directed Harrelson to an Oscar-nominated supporting performance in 2009’s “The Messenger”) examines the nature of a thoroughly corrupt cop like Brown. He’s casually racist, considers himself a “soldier” and is eventually caught on tape beating an innocent man to a pulp. Brown has two ex-wives (Cynthia Nixon and Anne Heche, both looking lost) who are sisters and neighbors, with whom he has two daughters (Brie Larson, Sammy Boyarsky). When confronted by superiors or lawyers (Sigourney Weaver, Steve Buscemi), Brown responds with a hyper-literate torrent of dubious legalese and moral equivocation. Harrelson dominates the picture, but Brown’s unraveling feels increasingly unrealistic and uninteresting. Instead of leading toward understanding, “Rampart” remains a dirty cop caricature, more a complaint than a story. With the excellent Robin Wright as a love (or really just sex) interest. R for pervasive language, sexual content and some violence. 108 minutes. One and a half stars out of four. — Jake Coyle, AP Entertainment Writer SAFE HOUSE: “Forgettable” probably isn’t a word you’d expect to use to describe a film starring Denzel Washington, Ryan Reynolds, Vera Farmiga, Brendan Gleeson and Sam Shepard. But unfortunately, that’s one of the most apt. Directed by Daniel Espinosa from a script by David Guggenheim (not to be confused with “An Inconvenient Truth” director Davis Guggenheim), “Safe House” is a frenetically paced jumble of shaky-cam tricks and quick edits, dizzying car chases and deafening shootouts. You’d be forgiven for mistaking it for yet another action thriller from Tony Scott, given that it bears his aesthetic markings as well as the presence of Washington, his usual star. This time, Washington plays the notorious Tobin Frost, a brilliant former CIA operative who’s turned traitor, selling secrets to any nation or enemy cell willing to buy them. After years on the run, he’s captured and brought to an agency safe house in Cape Town, South Africa, where Reynolds, as the ambitious and idealistic Matt Weston, is its bored minder. Matt longs to prove himself and see some real action in the field, and he gets it sooner than he expects when the house comes under attack and he and Tobin must go on the run. Farmiga, Gleeson and Shepard play the suits back in the United States who are tracking their whereabouts and wondering whether they’re in cahoots. But everyone here is a potential rogue, because red herrings and double-crosses abound; it’s a tactic to keep us guessing and (theoretically) distract us from the fact that the movie doesn’t have anything novel to do or say during its overlong running time. R for strong violence throughout and some language. 115 minutes. One and a half stars out of four. — Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic

illing Hobart Arena with the sounds of hope and joy is one thing Christian music artist Matthew West says he’ll strive for during his stop in Troy on Feb. 17.

West will be on tour with Casting Crowns’ Come to the Well Tour along with Royal Tailor and Lindsay McCaul. West said while he wasn’t planning on touring, the opportunity presented itself while he was assisting in writing for Casting Crowns’ album. “I’m super excited about being on tour with Casting Crowns,” West said. “We were camped out writing and he said ‘Hey, you need to go on tour with us.’” West said the tour is one that is filled with excitement and encouragement. “It’s fun to be able to tour with not only people you have tremendous respect for, but are friends with already,” West said. “It’s going to be a great night. Obviously Casting Crowns has many hit songs people know and love and I have several songs from the radio. We are just going to have a great time together.” Aside from the performance itself and the fun West said will be intertwined, he said there is a hope for an even greater result following the show. “Our live shows are a fun, fun time. But more than anything it will be a night with a powerful message. A night for people to check their troubles at the door for a little while and to be refreshed and reminded of the one we sing about and they can be reminded of how much God loves them,” West said of the show. While West hopes people can forget their troubles for awhile to allow the message he’s singing to resonate, he knows after his last album, it’s easier said than done. After writing Something to Say from his own perspective, encouraging listeners to speak out and inviting his fans to tell their story — to say what they have to say. He said “I told them, they had something to say, so now I need to let them say it.” He said what he

Bible, read and pray and I would start breathing a little slower and start reading stories.” For two months, West read stories of what people are going through everyday, from the burdens they bear to the stresses of every day life. “One by one, the right stories began to reveal themselves to me. I feel like there is something special about it and now I am sharing this journey with the people that listen to my music,” West said. “It has been neat to share that journey with them and have the songs be theirs.” West said the project allowed him to write from a different stance emotionally, and opened his eyes and his heart to a new world. “It allowed me a chance to write songs from a perspective I have never written before. All of a sudden people are writing about their life experiences to me, divorce, etc.,” West said. “It was something that I felt I needed to write about but always felt unqualified to do so and all of a sudden, hundreds of stories gave me permission. It made me feel qualified to write a song and tell this story because there is a lot of people who are dealing with that.” From abuse and divorce to bullying and health problems, West said the let-

ters took him through the gamut of emotions — even leading him to write through anger — something also new to him. The track titled “Broken Girl” led West to that point and let him say things that he said she and all the broken girls in the world need to hear. “These songs of hope and redemption rose up out of brokenness,” West said. “That was the real beauty of what wound up coming together. I felt like these are some of the most hopeful songs I have ever written.” All together he wants the message of his album to resonate with the people who inspired it and all those who listen to it. West said he already has ventured on to another project of hearing his listener’s stories. “It doesn’t matter what the story of your life is up to this point,” West said. “Just remember that it’s not over, that every story is going to have it’s ups and downs and ultimately, when we put our stories in God’s hands and allow him to be the author, we are promised it will be a story of redemption. That’s the main message I hope to send to people — out of brokenness, healing can be found.” The Come to the Well Tour will begin at 7 p.m. Feb. 17 at Hobart Arena, 255 Adams St.

learned changed him and gave him realizations he’s never had. “I think that is the reality, you say check your troubles at the door,” West said. “But we know that people are walking through the doors into this great big crowd of people, every single one of them coming in with different circumstances. In a way I feel like I have read their stories and gained an insight of what people are dealing with. You realize common threads and themes — battling cancer, financial troubles, battling with depression — it has opened my eyes when I look out to the audience.” West said he truly found those common threads after receiving 10,000 letters from his announcement for the album, The Story of our Life. He went to a cabin — attempting to leave the world behind for awhile — but realized with those 10,000 stories, 10,000 people had come with him. “It was overwhelming, by the sheer amount of stories,” he said. “I didn’t expect 10,000 stories. Everyday I was sort of a roller coaster. One minute I was super overwhelmed and didn’t know whether I should start reading or writing and then I would open “It doesn’t matter what the story of your life is up to my this point. Just remember that it’s not over that every

story is going to have its ups and downs and ultimately, when we put our stories in God’s hands and allow him to be the author, we are promsied it will be a story of redemption.” — Matthew West

Strutting to “Uptown Girl,” she was all smiles in her Pamella Roland gown — even after a little stumble on the dress’s hem. Brinkley is a supporter

of the Heart Truth campaign, headed by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, and has participated in this event before. This year, though, she hesitated before deciding to don a dress again. Her own mother is suffering from serious heart disease, having experienced five strokes and a heart attack, and right now Brinkley says she feels like she

NEW YORK (AP) — Red is Christie Brinkley’s color. The veteran supermodel returned to the runway Wednesday night for the Red Dress Collection fashion show, an annual New

should be spending quality time with her parents. But they’re the ones who actually nudged her to do it, she said in a teary telephone interview Tuesday. “My parents understand more than anyone about the importance of getting the right care. They’re proud of me that I’ve reached a place where I can give back.” Something else she’s learned from them is to maintain a healthy lifestyle with daily exercise and a careful diet. That wasn’t always easy when she was a young model, jet-setting from place to place and try-

ing every fad diet that came along, said Brinkley, now 58, but she’s learned the best way to have the good life is to live it. “I make time for this. I used to always put myself on the back burner, but I want to be strong and able for my kids, myself and my parents.” She said she also finds strength and camaraderie within the modeling world, and she hopes the first-time “models” at the Red Dress show will feel that way, too. “I’ve always felt the catfight thing is a cliche, but especially when we’re all together and subject is the heart,

we’re all united.” Jennifer Nettles of the country band Sugarland said after the show that she enjoyed the experience but stuck to her strategy of not looking at the monitor while she was walking in her V-neck David Meister gown with a high slit. “I was afraid of falling,” she said. “It’s my first time modeling — at New York Fashion Week! Why not start big?” she said. Minka Kelly looked like a seasoned pro in a sequincovered wrap dress by Diane von Furstenberg and Gloria Estefan in Narciso Rodriguez.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Pursue assistance through Eldercare Dear Annie: My mother is 86 and lives in another state. My 33year-old nephew and his three kids live with her, as do my niece, "Joanna," and her two children. Not one of them has a job. Several months ago, Mom broke her hip and was in rehab for four months. During that time, Joanna used Mom's ATM card and took all the money out of her account. She also opened credit cards in Mom's name and ran up huge bills and stole Mom's mail-order pills and sold them on the street. What's worse is that my sister, the mother of this niece and nephew, insists that I am not permitted to say one negative word to my mother about them. She claims the thievery is between Joanna, Mom and God. My mother is scared of all of them. I have called Adult Protective Services, but was told they'd only step in if my mother made a report. My sister says I need to forgive Joanna and let it go. How do I do that? There has been no accountability, no restitution, no apology. Also, I found out that Mom's good jewelry was pawned for drugs. Any ideas? — Mad in Omaha Dear Omaha: Adult Protective Services may not be able to step in if Mom appears to be mentally healthy and refuses to cooperate. Your sister is trying to protect her children. Shame on her for allowing them to financially abuse their grandmother. Please try the Eldercare Locator at 1-800-677-1116 (eldercare.gov) and ask what assistance is available in Mom's state. Dear Annie: After several weeks of arguments with my husband about his parents' intentional cruelty toward me and his lack of defense, we finally confronted them. We tried to do it gently. We shared that they had hurt my feelings with their behavior. Their reaction was the opposite of what we had hoped. Instead of apologizing for their wrongs against me, they immediately went on the defensive and insisted that my husband and I will always be the "children," and they will always be the parents and will not tolerate "lectures" from their kids. I choose to no longer be surrounded by such mean people. My husband is trying to stand up for me, but it's difficult for him because they are so controlling. Am I wrong to feel he should defend me, even if it means we are no longer speaking to his parents? — Confused in Oregon Dear Confused: Your husband must put you first. He should insist his parents behave in a civil manner toward you, but if they can't or won't, it is OK for you to stay away as much as possible. Your husband, however, may choose to visit his parents without you. Please don't take this as a lack of defense. They are his folks, and he loves them. We recommend you support his efforts to stay in touch with them and he support your need to stay away. Dear Annie: "Looking for Some Answers" didn't know what to do about her alcoholic friend who got behind the wheel. The man who killed my 18-year-old son did not feel he was too drunk to drive. Our small police department does not have an alcohol test kit in every patrol rig, so the officer had to drive 45 minutes back to the station to get one. By the time he returned, the man had sobered up enough to pass. This man is a murderer because he chose to drink and drive. It's been 10 years, but I still miss my son every day. God forgive me, but I wish these drunks would just die and stop killing innocent people. "Looking" should call 911 and turn her friend in every time she gets behind the wheel under the influence. Drunk drivers are selfish people who need help. — Klamath Falls, Ore. Dear Klamath Falls: Your loss is heartbreaking. Our condolences.

SUDOKU PUZZLE

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:

HINTS FROM HELOISE

Hint can help make Valentine’s a piece of cake Dear Readers: With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, here’s a Heloise hint about how to make a heartshaped cake! It’s not hard to do, and it adds a fun twist to the usual Valentine cake. Use whatever cake mix you like (a fun one is a white cake, and I add several drops of red food coloring to make it pink, or use a box of red velvet cake mix!). Mix the batter according to package directions, and pour half into a 9-inch round pan and the other half into a 9-inch square pan. Be sure the batter is evenly divided between pans so that when you put the layers together, they are the same

Hints from Heloise Columnist height. Bake according to package directions. When cakes are completely cool (removing a hot cake from a pan can cause it to break into pieces), place the square cake on a large platter in a diamond position. Cut the round layer in half to make two half-circles. Carefully place the cut sides

against the top sides of the “diamond.” Voilà — a heart! Use your favorite frosting. You may need a little extra frosting, because you should use some of it to “glue” the pieces together to form the heart. Give it a try! — Heloise SOCK STORAGE Dear Heloise: I cringe when reading articles about the use of plastic newspaper sleeves to pack shoes when traveling. I did that many years ago, only to find spots all over the shoes, and they would not go away. It could have been caused by moisture or heat somehow. Old men’s socks work great instead. I stuff small items into

the shoes so they retain their shape. Also, the socks are useful to buff up the shoe surface. — Nadine in Salem, Ore. The bags are safe and provide a “green” way to pack shoes. In your case, the shoes might have been damp. — Heloise PEN PALS Dear Readers: Have a group of kids (Scouts, youth groups, etc.) who want a great project? They can hand-write letters to folks in a retirement community, sharing their experiences, favorite hobbies, pets, etc. Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for the residents to write back. A great way to share! — Heloise

HOROSCOPE Friday, Feb. 10, 2012 Even though socially you’ll express your individualism in as many ways as conditions permit in the year ahead, when it comes to your workaday world, you might need to acquiesce to other people’s thinking when it’s the smart thing to do. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — When there is justification, it’s commendable to praise another. However, if you’re doing so for less noble reasons, such as getting a favor out of someone, it’s likely to backfire on you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Don’t let someone who has trouble managing his or her own financial affairs take care of a money issue for you. If you acquiesce and let this person do it anyway, you’ll be sorry. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — If you’re having a difficult time making a decision, forgo taking a leadership role. Let someone else who seems to have his or her head on straight call the shots. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — It’s one thing to help out a pal who is overwhelmed with work, but don’t saddle yourself with a friend’s burdens merely because he or she can’t be bothered to handle them on their own. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — When becoming friendly with a new group, watch out for one member who is somewhat unpopular, and for good reason. She or he might try to glom on to you and drag you down as well. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Someone with whom you’re closely affiliated might be able to put on pretenses and get away with it, but that doesn’t mean you can. The best rule to follow is to simply be yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Just because you haven’t heard from a pal who is close to your heart for some time, it doesn’t necessarily mean that he or she isn’t interested in keeping in touch. Circumstances could have this person tied up. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Money in itself is not evil, but the love of it can sometimes cause people to lower their standards and do things that they shouldn’t. Don’t you be one of them. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t single out one person in particular to be nice to just because you want a favor that, chances are, you won’t get anyway. You’ll go further being amiable to everyone. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Beware of any involvement that is off limits, such as an illicit romantic encounter. It might be flattering to be wooed, but it’ll create complications you don’t need. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — An insincere person might try to manipulate you by attempting to make you believe that what he or she is asking of you is for your best interest. If you’re smart, you won’t take the bait. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If by chance you are feeling a powerful inclination to be the center of attention, don’t do anything silly. All eyes will be focused on you all right, but not for the reasons you think. COPYRIGHT 2012 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Friday, Feb. 10, the 41st day of 2012. There are 325 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 10, 1962, the Soviet Union exchanged captured American U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers for Rudolf Abel, a Soviet spy held by the United States. On this date: • In 1841, Upper Canada and Lower Canada were proclaimed united under an Act of Union passed by the British Parliament. • In 1942, RCA Victor presented Glenn Miller and his Orchestra

with a “gold record” for their recording of “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” which had sold more than 1 million copies. • In 1962, Republican George W. Romney announced his ultimately successful candidacy for governor of Michigan. • In 1968, U.S. figure skater Peggy Fleming won America’s only gold medal of the Winter Olympic Games in Grenoble, France. • In 1992, boxer Mike Tyson was convicted in Indianapolis of raping Desiree Washington, a Miss Black America contestant. (Tyson

served three years in prison.) • Five years ago: Less than a month after launching his presidential bid online, Democrat Barack Obama announced his candidacy in person, telling thousands outside the Illinois state capital in Springfield: “Let us transform this nation.” • Today’s Birthdays: Opera singer Leontyne Price is 85. Actor Robert Wagner is 82. Singer Roberta Flack is 75. Olympic gold-medal swimmer Mark Spitz is 62. Actress Chloe Grace Moretz is 15.

Thousands join first lady for ‘Let’s Move’ outing DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Wild arm swings, sharp robotic turns, pulsing fist pumps. Michelle Obama busted out a few new moves Thursday to mark the second anniversary of her campaign against childhood obesity with a few new friends — 14,000 or so, it turns out. The first lady rocked out with thousands of sixth- to ninth-graders at a Des Moines arena on the first stop of a three-day trip to highlight her “Let’s Move” campaign. It was a giant pep rally for eating right and exercising, complete with confetti, balloons and a towering birthday cake made of fruit. The first lady and crowd revved up by doing the Interlude, a dance that started in a dorm room at the University of Northern Iowa and went viral from there. Mrs. Obama chose Iowa for her first stop because the state is working to become the nation’s healthiest state by 2016, as measured by the Gallup organization. It ranked 19th in 2010, the most recent rankings. Mrs. Obama sold healthy eating to the kids

as something fun, but also dangled the bait that it could help them “pass your tests and get good grades in school.” The first lady took on the issue of childhood obesity because almost a third of U.S. children are at least overweight and about 17 percent are obese. In the two years since she launched her campaign, she has brought substantial new visibility to the childhood obesity issue and has prodded schools, families, restaurants, grocery stores, doctors, local communities and others to do more to tackle the problem. Robert Blendon, a Harvard professor who tracks public opinion on health care, said Mrs. Obama has helped bring about a shift in attitude, with childhood obesity increasingly being viewed as a societal problem rather than a personal matter. She’s given people tangible ideas on how to eat better and exercise more rather than talking in broad concepts that don’t hit home with parents, he said. “It’s getting into people’s conversations in ways that it would not have been if someone had not taken it

The first lady herself said recently she’s “pretty much willing to make a complete fool out of myself” to get kids moving and eating better. To that end, she’s done push-ups with everyone from Ellen DeGeneres to South Africa’s Desmond

Tutu, danced the Dougie with school kids, done jumping jacks and swiveled a hula hoop on the South Lawn, fed veggie pizza to Jay Leno and competed in an East Room potato sack race with Jimmy Fallon. Thursday, she added the Interlude to her repertoire. Later in the day, she vis-

ited Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas to announce a new program to improve the meals served on military bases. And she was having dinner at an Olive Garden restaurant in Fort Worth, Texas, to chat with parents about the challenges in helping kids to eat right.

On Friday she travels to Florida. Beyond the policy and health implications, the effort has contributed to an engaging image of the first lady — and, by association, has been an asset for the president’s re-election effort. The first lady’s campaign hasn’t been just all fluffy words, hip dances and funny jokes. Marion Nestle, a food and nutrition professor at New York University, gives the first lady high marks for going up against powerful forces in the food and beverage industry, and getting some pushback along the way. The first lady also has attracted some “nanny state” grumbling from conservatives who think she’s intruding on what should be personal matters. “Let’s give her credit,” Nestle said. “She has no real power. She has no legal authority. She’s a wife, and yet she has managed to take this issue and bring it to national prominence.” Nestle said it will take decades to tell whether the campaign produces reductions in childhood obesity, likening it to the gradual turnaround in attitudes about smoking.

Spring rain unlikely for Texas despite La Nina end FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — La Nina is winding down and will end in a few months, but folks shouldn’t expect spring showers in drought-stricken Texas, weather experts said Thursday. The National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center announced that La Nina, which contributed to the drought across the southwestern U.S., will dissipate between March and May. It brings less rainfall and warmer-than-normal temperatures, but its departure won’t lead to immediate weather changes, said Victor Murphy, the climate service program manager for the National Weather Service’s southern region, based

in Fort Worth. That’s why forecasts show below-normal rainfall across the state this spring, usually the wettest months of the year in Texas. The severe drought that’s plagued the state for more than a year also is expected to drag on and possibly worsen without significant precipitation, Murphy said. “When La Nina comes to an end, it will wipe the slate clean, but we have to really watch the summer months,” Murphy said Thursday. This La Nina — one of the strongest on record — started in late summer 2010 and tapered off last spring, then re-emerged a bit

weaker in the fall, Murphy said. It’s the 11th multi-year La Nina since 1900, he said. The average rainfall for Texas in 2011 was a mere 14.88 inches, making it the state’s driest year on record. Bone-dry conditions across Texas led to wildfires that burned nearly 4 million acres, destroyed more than 3,000 homes and killed 10 people in the 2011 fire season. Many lakes dried up and some communities’ water supplies ran dangerously low. The state needs massive rainfall to end the drought. In fact, ending it would require three months of 200 to 500 percent of the normal precipitation in most of the state and between 175 and

200 percent of normal rainfall in East Texas, according to January data from the National Climatic Data Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. But unexpected storms unrelated to La Nina in December and January have eased some parched areas. Since last week, the Dallas-Fort Worth region and a swath of North Texas stretching to the state’s border with Oklahoma and Arkansas have been officially out of drought conditions for the first time since July. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor released Thursday, only about 23 percent of the state

remains in the most severe drought category and about 32 percent in the second worst category — swaths of west, southeast and central Texas. On Oct. 4, 88 percent of the state was in the most severe drought category and 9 percent was in the second-worst category. “The rainfall the last two months is a real head-scratcher, but it’s helped,” Murphy said. “We’ve been seeing some improvement, but we’re more apt to return to drier conditions.” Ron McQueen, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Lubbock, said he’s cautiously optimistic about showers by late spring or early summer.

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 branches are Union trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks.

East wins title with unbeaten CCC run Staff Reports

MIAMI COUNTY

CASSTOWN — Knowing they’d have to see their opponent again in a few days — with a lot more at stake — the Miami East Vikings wanted to send a message. And in the process, they finished off a Cross County Conference sweep. Miami East (19-1, 12-0 CCC) finished off an undefeated run to

a conference championship Thursday night — and an undefeated run in their new home gym — putting down Arcanum 77-22 in a preview of an upcoming first-round Division III Tippecanoe sectional tournament game. “It’s an odd situation — at the end of the season, having to play the team that you’ll be playing in

the first round of the tournament,” Miami East coach Preston Elifritz said. “But we wanted to treat it like any other game. “Everyone got at least seven minutes of playing time tonight, and no one played more than 14. We were very balanced and kept everyone fresh, and we want to keep the girls fresh for Tuesday (the day of the tournament opener).”

“They’ve got the major I want to go into, and they have a great program in it,” Poland said when discussing his reasons for choosing Ashland. “(At Milton-Union) I was known as ‘The Rev,’ because I brought kids on my football team to God. Being able to lead people to Christ and get people on fire for God is a big thing I’ll take away from this year. “Another one of the perks (at Ashland) is the history. They play in the toughest division in Division II, and I know I’ll be going up against top guys week in and week out. They’ve got great facilities and great coaches, and the offer they gave me was great, too.” Poland is coming off of an outstanding year at Milton-Union.

Devils finish big season with split Cavs’ rookie Irving day-to-day Cavaliers rookie point guard Kyrie Irving remains day to day because of a concussion that sidelined him for one game and could keep him out a few more. Irving was evaluated at the Cleveland Clinic on Thursday, one day after he was diagnosed with a concussion shortly before the Cavs beat the Los Angeles Clippers. See Page 16.

Staff Reports Tippecanoe finished off its record-breaking season with a split Thursday, with the girls (16-5) topping Carroll 2,5172,261 and the boys falling thanks to a tremendous baker effort by the Patriots, 2,8282,687.

Johnson’s eagles put him in Pebble Beach lead PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Twenty months later, Dustin Johnson finally hit the drive he wanted at Pebble Beach. Ten years later, Tiger Woods must have wondered what kept him away from the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. On a spectacular day of scenery and scoring, Johnson blasted a tee shot on the third hole at Pebble Beach and then pitched in for eagle from 41 yards in front of the green. He added another eagle on his way to a 9-under 63 and a three-way tie atop the

leaderboard Thursday. Woods was five shots to par out of the lead, a solid start to his PGA Tour season. He had six birdies in a 4-under 68 at Spyglass Hill, the fourth-best score on that course. Spyglass was hardest of the three courses, though not by much. The weather was so pure that all three courses played about one shot under par. Charlie Wi was over at Monterey Peninsula and had a shot at 59 without ever knowing it. Wi was 8 under after a tap-in birdie

on the 13th hole, and needed only three birdies in the last five holes. Trouble is, he had no idea the Shore Course was a 70. He made one more birdie and had a 9-under 61. Joining them was former U.S. Amateur Danny Lee, who holed a bunker shot for eagle at No. 2 and holed out from the 11th fairway with a wedge for another eagle to match Johnson at 9-under 63. Johnson is turning into his generation’s “Prince of Pebble.” He won the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-

Am in 2009 and 2010, and then had a three-shot lead at Pebble in the 2010 U.S. Open until he shot 82 in the final round. On the third hole of that round, he hit driver left into the bushes for a lost ball and made double bogey. On Thursday, he smashed a driver nearly 340 yards over the trees to just short of the green, setting up eagle. Even now, he still thinks about that tee shot in the U.S. Open. Johnson overpowered the par 5s at Pebble Beach, the secret to playing that course well. He had a 6-iron

for his second shot at the par-5 second for an easy birdie, holed a 65-foot eagle putt on the sixth hole, got up and down from the bunker just short of the 14th for birdie, then cringed when his 40-foot eagle attempt on the 18th just turned away. Women’s Australian Open M E L B O U R N E , Australia — American Stacy Lewis and Australia’s Sarah Kemp shared the Women’s Australian Open lead at 4-under 69, leaving top-ranked Yani Tseng a

stroke back in her bid to win the event for the third straight year. Lewis, the Kraft Nabisco winner last year, had six birdies and two bogeys in the LPGA Tour opener at historic Royal Melbourne, the 2011 Presidents Cup venue that is hosting a women’s professional event for the first time. Kemp had a bogey-free round. Tseng won the tournament, sanctioned this year by the LPGA Tour for the first time, the last two seasons at Commonwealth Golf Club.

New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin (17) goes up for a dunk in front of Washington Wizards forward Trevor Booker (35) Wednesday in Washington.

Lin having big effect in Asia NEW YORK (AP) — Jeremy Lin is making the Knicks must-see TV in Asia. The NBA says Thursday its Asian TV partners have added Knicks games to their broadcast schedules following the emergence of Lin, the first Americanborn NBA player of Chinese or Taiwanese descent. Sina in China will show Friday’s game against the Lakers, while stations in Taiwan will televise Knicks games this month against Toronto, Sacramento, New Orleans, New Jersey and Atlanta.

ESPN Philippines also added the Feb. 17 Hornets game in New York. Lin, an undrafted guard from Harvard, has led the Knicks to three straight wins, scoring more than 20 points in each game. Ironically, his performances are missed by many in New York. A dispute between Time Warner Cable and MSG Network is keeping the Knicks off that system. MSG said its ratings are up 36 percent over its season average in the two games since Lin moved into the starting lineup on Monday.

Stars hold off Jackets, 4-2 COLUMBUS (AP) — Jamie Benn scored two goals and Kari Lehtonen had 26 saves to make an early lead stand up in the Dallas Stars’ 4-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night. Alex Goligoski and Stephane Robidas each had a goal and an assist, and Mike Ribeiro added two assists for the Stars, who began the night 12th in the Western Conference but just two points behind eighthplace Minnesota. Dallas led 3-0 barely 21 minutes in and then hung on behind Lehtonen to win its fourth in the last six games. Vinny Prospal and Rick Nash scored, and Fedor Tyutin and Derick Brassard had two assists apiece for Columbus, which was trying for its first three-game winning streak of the season. Columbus had several chances to get the tying goal in the final period. With 6 minutes left, Jeff Carter, who had goals in

his last two games, hit the post on a hard shot from the left hash. Tyutin was just wide with another big slap shot with just over a minute remaining and Lehtonen smothered R.J. Umberger’s redirect attempt with 29 seconds left. The Stars wasted little time in taking control, scoring twice in the opening 4 minutes. Benn opened the scoring after a giveaway by Columbus’ Samuel Pahlsson handed him the puck in the high slot. Benn wheeled and flicked a rising forehand shot into the top right corner of the goal for his 16th of the season. Then the Blue Jackets lost a player and allowed a goal on the same play. The Stars were swarming when Tomas Vincour’s hard slap shot hit Columbus defenseman Marc Methot on the right side of his face. The puck dropped almost straight down where Goligoski was waiting to jam in the rebound.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cavaliers rookie point guard Kyrie Irving remains day to day because of a concussion that sidelined him for one game and could keep him out a few more. Irving was evaluated at the Cleveland Clinic on Thursday, one day after he was diagnosed with a concussion shortly before the Cavs beat the Los Angeles Clippers. Irving, who was accidentally kneed in the head during Tuesday’s game in Miami, complained of a headache after warming up and missed his first game this season. His backup, Ramon Sessions, scored 24 points with 13 assists in Cleveland’s 99-92 win. The team said in a release that Irving was seen by Dr. Rick Figler at the Center for Sport Health at Cleveland Clinic. The Cavs did not practice Thursday. The team is treating Irving’s head injury conservatively and cautiously, following the NBA’s new guidelines on concussions. Because concussions differ from person to person, there’s no way to predict when Irving will be cleared to resume basketball activities. In December, the league put its concussion policy in place to determine when players can return from head injuries. If a player is diagnosed with a concussion, he will have to complete a series of steps to confirm that he’s healthy enough for competition. Once he is symptom free, the player must make it through increasing stages of exertion from a stationary bike, to jogging, to agility work, to non-contact team drills while ensuring the symptoms don’t return after each one. Then, the neurologist hired to lead the league’s concussion program needs to be consulted before the player is cleared. The process will likely take at least several days, if not weeks.

Cleveland Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving (2) drives past Dallas Mavericks forward Lamar Odom, left, and Brandan Wright in the fourth quarter Saturday in Cleveland. Cleveland hosts Milwaukee on Friday and Philadelphia on Saturday, and it’s possible Irving could sit out both games. The Cavs play their next eight games at home. Irving, who does not have a history of concussions, was driving to the basket in the fourth quarter Tuesday when he banged into Heat forward Chris Bosh. Irving fell backward and hit his head on Dwyane Wade’s knee. He stayed in the game and made two free throws before he was taken out by coach Byron Scott with 1:27 left.

Irving spoke to reporters following the game and was in a playful mood, joking with teammate Luke Harangody. The 19-year-old didn’t mention his headache until later. The Cavs did not have a shootaround on Wednesday and Irving reported to Quicken Loans Arena in the afternoon and took part in a team walkthrough at 4:30 in the practice gym. It was later while taking some shots on the arena’s main floor that he began feeling worse and told trainer Max Benton. “He went out and

warmed up and said his head felt like it was on fire,” Scott said. Irving was diagnosed with the concussion by Dr. AJ Cianflocco and stayed in the locker room during the game. The No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft, Irving has had a sensational start to his pro career. He’s averaging 18 points and 5.1 assists for the Cavs, who are a surprising 10-14 in Scott’s second season. Irving was chosen to participate in the “Rising Stars” game during AllStar weekend this month in Orlando.

Bettman sooths Columbus fans COLUMBUS (AP) — NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says he is aware of how frustrated Columbus Blue Jackets fans are about another losing season. He is also certain that the franchise has the right people in charge to turn the sorry club around. “I’m aware of the fact that there’s a little bit of frustration by some fans in the on-ice performance,” he said of the Blue Jackets, 1532-6 heading into Thursday night’s game against Dallas. “I can assure you, because I know it firsthand, there is nobody more frustrated than ownership and management. And nobody more committed to getting it right on the ice than ownership and management. I have no doubt about the future of this franchise because it’s in extremely

strong, committed hands.” A few hundred Blue Jackets held a rally recently to protest the club’s front office, which has overseen a terrible season. The team faltered at the start and hasn’t recovered. The Blue Jackets entered their most recent game with just 36 points 11 behind Edmonton, the team with the next-worst record. Bettman has chosen to view the angry fans as a plus. “I saw that somebody was trying to organize a pep rally. But that’s a good sign,” joked the commissioner, who is often met with jeers when introduced at games to make on-ice presentations. “It’s kind of like when you get booed when you go out on the ice, it’s better than when it’s quiet. I know about that

firsthand.” Columbus was recently awarded the 2013 NHL AllStar game. The Blue Jackets, who hosted the draft in 2007, are averaging 14,526 spectators per game this season and 16,236 over their 11 seasons. Earlier Thursday, Bettman was in Detroit for the announcement of next year’s Winter Classic. The game between Original Six rivals, the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs, is expected to draw around 115,000 to Michigan’s “Big House.” Bettman was asked if Columbus might someday host a Winter Classic game at 105,000-seat Ohio Stadium. “We just did the All-Star game,” he said with the laugh. “You want more right now?”

Bettman declined to discuss proposed conference realignment, which would most benefit teams such as Detroit and Columbus the only Eastern time zone teams in the Western Conference. The NHL Players’ Association refused to allow the league to implement the new alignment. “This league has had 13 different types of alignment and scheduling in the regular season since 1966. The playoffs, since the league took control of the Stanley Cup 80-some odd years ago, had 13 different formats,” Bettman said. “This is the first time that the union has weighed in. We’re not looking for a confrontation right now. We’ll deal with this at another time. But ultimately our hope and expectation is that we’ll wind up where we want.”

Roundup ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 points. “The defense set the tone early, and we kept it on cruise from there,” Elifritz said. “But now we hit the reset button on the records and everything else.

Troy’s Clay Terrill plays the puck near the boards Thursday against Elder. ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 game. “That was real important,” Troy coach Larrell Walters said. “And it was great, because we were doing everything right. We were skating hard, making great passes, setting screen and crashing the net. “On two of those first three goals, we had more people in front of their net than they did. That just showed that we wanted it more.” At the 13:17 mark of the first period, Logan Tiderington capitalized on a rare mistake by the Elder goalie. The puck was popped up in front of the net, and the goalie got his glove on it but couldn’t catch it — and Tiderington was there when it finally hit the ice to shove it past and make it 1-0 Troy. Brandon Beaty and Nick Usserman each got an assist on the play. Barely more than one minute later at 12:12, Will Schober sent the puck behind the net to Clay Terrill. Terrill passed it in front of the net to Sean Clawson, who jammed it underneath the goalie’s glove and in. And with 11:39 to go in the first, Usserman took feeds from Beaty and Austin Erisman and showed some finesse in front of the net, sizing up his shot and lifting the puck over the goalie’s glove to make it 3-0 Troy in the blink of an eye. “We came out really

Troy barely let Elder hold onto the puck at all, making it look like the Panthers were standing still and waiting for the Trojans to steal it every time one of their players touched it. And time and time again, the Trojans obliged. “Every time they got the puck, they’d look up to see if we were coming to get it,” Walters said. “The defense was very strong. (Goalie) Eric Wright and our four defensemen — Austin Erisman, Derrick Bark, Drew Morgan and Michael Walter — all did a great job.” This time around, the Trojans outshot the Panthers 53-12, with Wright stopping all 12 shots to record his second shutout against Elder. “Anytime you can hold a team to 12 shots, you’re doing some good things,” Walters said. “And they only had one or two real scoring threats, so most of those

Ullrich stripped of 3rd-place finish GENEVA (AP) — Another day, another doping case, another Tour de France result amended. Cycling revisited its scandal-scarred recent history again Thursday when the Court of Arbitration for Sport found a Tour winner guilty of doping for the second time this week. Jan Ullrich, the 1997 champion, was stripped of his third-place finish in the 2005 race for “intensive involvement” in blood doping linked to the Operation Puerto case. The 38-year-old German also was banned from the sport for two years. Because Ullrich

He also earned Division II first team AllOhio honors for his accomplishments during the season. “I think my favorite memory from this year is probably scoring five goals against Northwestern,” Niswonger said. “You can’t get much better than that (five goals in one game). I’ll be on scholarship at Cincinnati State as a defender, so they’ll probably have me at defender-midfield.”

We just played a great game.” Tiderington scored his second goal of the night with 9:24 left in the second period, spinning and sliding a backhand through Elder’s goalie’s five-hole after taking passes from Erisman and Beaty. Less than two minutes later, Beaty got a goal of his own with a trick shot, taking a feed from Walter behind the net and bouncing the puck off the goalie’s back and in.

And with 4:32 left in the second, Clawson capped off the scoring with an assist from Terrill, getting the puck free in front of the Elder net and easily wristing it to the open side of the goal. The Trojans have to wait until tonight to find out who they play Saturday in the semifinal round — in a game that is free to the public — for the right to play in the SWOHSHL title game on Sunday in Cincinnati.

OSU’s compliance review ready COLUMBUS (AP) — Consultants studying how well Ohio State University programs comply with rules and requirements are ready to present their recommendations. The compliance review was launched last year following the school’s football memorabilia scandal that led to several player suspensions, the departure of coach Jim Tressel and an NCAA investigation.

The results will be presented to Ohio State trustees meeting Thursday in Columbus. Consultants reviewed the school’s compliance efforts and how well the university compares to other colleges and companies. The review looked at rules compliance across the university, with an emphasis on athletics, research, student financial aid and the medical center.

But really, the relationships I formed with all of my coaches and teammates is probably going to be my favorite memory.” That, and learning his purpose in life. “I know what I’m called to do — evangelism and mission work,” Poland added. “I know now that when I leave Milton-Union, some of my friends have been saved and know Jesus Christ.” • Logan Niswonger Tippecanoe’s Logan Niswonger is taking the next step — but he may have some more planned, as well.

Contador was stripped of his third Tour victory after CAS rejected his explanation that eating contaminated meat caused his positive tests for clenbuterol in the final days of the 2010 race. The 29-year-old Spaniard’s backdated two-year ban will remove from this year’s race the best Tour de France rider since Lance Armstrong at the peak of his career.

Kenny Moore made two free throws to make it a threepoint lead. Murray State again turned the ball over on a long inbounds pass and Jordan Cyphers made one of

two free throws to seal the upset. No. 20 Miss. St. 70, Mississippi 60 STARKVILLE, Miss. — Arnett Moultrie scored 18 points and Dee Bost dished a career-high 13 assists for Mississippi State. Moultrie was 9 of 14 from the field. Bost had eight assists in the first half as the Bulldogs built a 40-27 lead. The senior’s 13 assists were the most by an SEC player this season. Mississippi State (19-5, 6-3 Southeastern Conference) scored the first eight points and never trailed. Renardo Sidney added 14 points and Rodney Hood scored 10 for the Bulldogs. Reginald Buckner had 15 points and nine rebounds for Ole Miss (14-9, 4-5), which has lost three of four. Jarvis Summers scored 12 points and Jelan Kendrick added 11 for the Rebels.

scored 27 points for his first college win in his home state. The Badgers (19-6, 8-4 Big Ten) failed to score over the last 7-plus minutes of the second half while the Gophers (17-8, 5-7) dug out of a 13-point hole. Ryan Evans had 17 points and 11 rebounds for Wisconsin, which went 15 for 17 from the free throw line in overtime. Rodney Williams and Andre Hollins guided a frantic comeback by the Gophers in the final minutes of regulation after they fell behind 49-36.
