Troy BOE approves contracts BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer The Troy City Schools Board of Education unanimously renewed both superintendent Eric Herman’s and treasurer Craig Jones’ contracts through July 31, 2015, at Monday’s meeting. The board adjourned into executive session to privately discuss details of both contracts before

Body found in rubble of cabin The extraordinary manhunt for the former Los Angeles police officer suspected of three murders converged Tuesday on a mountain cabin where authorities believe he barricaded himself inside, engaged in a shootout that killed a deputy and then never emerged as the home went up in flames. A single gunshot was heard from within, and a charred body was found inside. If the man inside proves to be Christopher Dorner, as authorities suspect, the search for the most wanted man in America over the last week would have ended the way he had expected death, with the police pursuing him.

TROY accepting the terms for both administrators. There was no opposition. The board approved Herman’s contract and annual salary of $134,123 per year, beginning Aug. 1, 2013. The board approved Jones’ salary at starting annual base salary of $124,000 per year. Salary

increases on or after Aug. 1, 2014, will be in accordance with the schedule of salary payments, according to the board agenda. The board also approved adopting the Advance College Project with Indiana University for students to receive dual enrollment credit. Herman said he did not have a complete list of details of the costs for classes due to teachers still being approved to teach the college

Ex-Navy SEAL’s body escorted to cemetery After a 200-mile journey, former Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle was buried Tuesday in Austin as his family members and fellow SEALS looked on amid the sounds of drums and bagpipes.

Kyle, considered to be the deadliest sniper in U.S. military history, was killed along with a friend earlier this month while at a North Texas gun range. See Page 6.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Here are the winning numbers drawn Tuesday by the Ohio Lottery: • Pick 3 Midday: 6-9-0 • Pick 5 Midday: 9-0-6-6-4 • Pick 4 Midday: 1-6-3-9 • Rolling Cash 5: 13-24-29-33-39 Estimated jackpot: $130,000 • Pick 3 Evening: 5-9-3 • Pick 4 Evening: 3-4-3-8 • Pick 5 Evening: 2-4-8-3-3

• CONTINUED FROM 1 contains a trailer-like structure that Director of Planning & Zoning Andy Ehrhart described as similar to a “temporary classroom.” He said it was wheeled in and had two pieces that go together. The structure had been permitted with a “declaration of intent for agricultural use,” like storing hay or tack equipment. The problem was it appeared the tenant of the whole property was actually living in this structure. Both the health department and township zoning had received several complaints to this effect. “(The tenant) kept saying no, but

several sources confirmed they were living there,” said Chris Cook, Miami County Public Health Commissioner. Cook said a search warrant was obtained due to the reports of the people living there without meeting minimum sanitation standards, coupled with the fact that the department could never get access to the inside of the structure. Once on site, Ehrhart said it was obvious the property tenant was living in the structure. The tenant was informed they had 30 days to remedy the situation. That means at least move the living quarters out of the structure, if not the whole structure off the property.


“The structure can stay on the property; it just has to be used appropriately,” Ehrhart said. He also said a notice of violation will be sent to the property owner Wednesday. The Humane Society and SWCD were brought in due to the horses on the property. Craig Smail, SWCD administrator, said a complaint had been filed back in early December about manure from an abundance of horses. “The guideline is one horse per acre,” Smail said, “There was an allegation of quite a few more on the property, and that could lead to pollution.”

The tenant was issued a letter in mid-December that they were not in violation of any code, but had potential to be. Upon investigation in both December and Tuesday, no overabundance was found. The property includes 26 acres, and there were about 26 horses. The humane society removed no animals, and inspector Sharon Karns said the owner is being cooperative. Complaints also had been brought about the burial of dead horses, but the Ohio Department of Agriculture and Miami County Health Department determined that no codes were violated in that situation either, according to Cook.

FTC study says 1 in 4 consumers had error in a credit report WASHINGTON (AP) — One in four consumers has had an error in a credit report issued by a major agency, according to a government study released Monday. The Federal Trade Commission reported also said that 5 percent of the consumers identified errors in their reports that could lead to them paying more for mortgages, auto loans or other financial products. The study looked at reports for 1,001 consumers issued by the three major agencies Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. The FTC hired researchers to help consumers identify potential errors. It closely matches the results of a yearlong investigation by The Columbus Dispatch. The Ohio newspaper’s report last year said that thousands of consumers were denied loans because of errors on their credit reports. The FTC says the findings underline the importance of consumers checking their credit reports.

Representatives with Schneider Electric answered questions about a power aggregation plan during two public hearings Tuesday afternoon. The collective purchase of electric power is intended to lower costs for Troy residents, who authorized developing a program on the November 2011 ballot. Troy City Council will discuss authorizing the city’s operational/governance plan, as outlined in the public hearing, at the next council meeting Tuesday, Feb. 19. Tom Funderburg, assistant director of public service, said the city has been gathering information from other municipalities and villages that utilize electric power aggregation as well as from DP&L, which will remain the provider of transmission and distribution. Power generation, which constitutes about 60 to 70 percent of an electric bill, will change under the program. DP&L will remain the contact for outages in the event of a severe storm. Funderburg said he and Director of Public Service and Safety Patrick Titterington are planning a “process as transparent as possible with solid expertise to support us.” The aggregation program applies only to residences and small businesses with loads less than 700,000 kWh, and the measure is purely for the benefit of residents, emphasized Ray Stuart of Schneider Electric during the public hearing.

• CONTINUED FROM 1 misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. King currently is being held at the Miami County Jail with a cash only bond of $52,500. Smith also was held on $50,000 cash bond, but no longer is listed as an inmate at the jail. Both are set to appear in front of Judge Elizabeth Gutmann at 1 p.m. Feb. 19. Detectives discovered a large amount of drug paraphernalia, approximately $300, a digital scale with white residue, plastic bags, two cell phones, marijuana, and other drug paraphernalia in the residence at the time of the arrest and search

• CONTINUED FROM 1 what you look like, or who you love,” Obama said, speaking to a joint session of Congress and a television audience of millions. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a rising Republican star, sought to draw a contrast with Obama in excerpts of his GOP response, saying economic opportunity “isn’t bestowed on us from Washington.” “It comes from a vibrant free economy where people can risk their own money to open a business. And when they succeed, they hire more people, who in turn invest or spend the money they make, helping others start a business and create jobs,” Rubio said in the excerpts, released before Obama spoke. The president’s address marked the most specific outline of his second-term agenda since winning reelection, and included proposals for increased spending on manufacturing, infrastructure and education. His focus on jobs and growth underscored the degree to which he is still hampered by the economy, even as he pursues a bolder agenda including overhauling the nation’s immigration laws, enacting stricter gun-control measures and tackling climate change. Obama’s proposals, many of which are repackaged versions of initiatives that stalled in his first term, face an uncertain future on Capitol Hill, where Republicans retain control of the House. The GOP is most ardently opposed to Obama’s calls

for legislating more tax revenue to reduce the deficit and offset broad automatic spending cuts known as the sequester that are to take effect March 1. The president was uncompromising in calling for bringing down the deficit through a combination of tax increases and targeted spending cuts, though he has offered few specifics on either. He did reiterate his willingness to tackle entitlement changes, particularly on Medicare, though he has ruled out increasing the eligibility age for the popular benefit program for seniors. Pivoting briefly to foreign policy, Obama announced a scaling back of the U.S. military footprint abroad, with 34,000 American troops withdrawing from Afghanistan within a year. He also sharply rebuked North Korea for its latest nuclear launch, warning that the impoverished nation’s nuclear program has only further isolated it from the international community. North Korea said Tuesday that it successfully detonated a nuclear device in defiance of U.N. warnings. Despite the challenges abroad, Obama said it is economic growth that serves as his “North Star.” He challenged a Congress often stalled by partisan bickering to focus on three key principles: attracting more jobs to the U.S., equipping Americans with the skills to compete for the positions and making sure hard work leads to a decent living.

not work and sold drugs to pay the bills. King claimed full responsibility for the drug trafficking and Smith had nothing to do with it. King indicated to officers that he was only selling 1/8 or 1/4 ounce of crack cocaine per week and he did not have many customers. Smith said she did not want to speak with officers at the time of the arrest. Smith was allowed to use her phone and make arrangements for a babysitter for her 10-year-old daughter, who lives with her. She then was transported to the jail on charges of Permitting Drug Trafficking and Trafficking in Drugs.

A detective conducted a field test on the white residue found on the digital scale, which showed a presence of cocaine. According to the Miami County Sheriff ’s report, a search warrant was issued by acting Miami County Municipal Court Judge Zuhl on Thursday. Detectives had to use forcible entry to gain access to the home last Friday morning after no response was made and found Smith and King in bed. King told officers he had lost his job and Smith did

“The city doesn’t get anything back,” Stuart said. “The whole reason to do this is to save money for the residents.” The program will likely be fully implemented by the fourth quarter of 2013. There are about 240 government aggregators across the state, which have saved residents between 4 to 6 percent on their utility costs, according to figures provided by Schneider Electric, a third-party energy provider who coordinates bids with suppliers. Residents and businesses also will have 21 days to opt-out once they receive notification from the selected supplier. Otherwise, they will be automatically enrolled. “The percentage historically who say no is very, very low,” Stuart said. Bidding requests will be sent out to the four suppliers with government aggregation expertise in Ohio, Stuart said. The contractor will analyze the supplier bids and make a recommendation on which provides the best rates, keeping in mind several components of the program that residents have said are important. “Budget billing has come up as a big issue, and exit fees,” Stuart said. Following the public hearing, the law and ordinance committee recommended council approve the governance measure, which will be discussed at the meeting Tuesday, Feb. 19. Residents with questions may contact Funderburg at the city of Troy office at (937) 339-7639.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Pocono Record, Stroudsburg, Penn., on the hypocrisy of gun control talk: Grown-ups sure are funny people. Funny ha ha, no. Just weird. They say things like they mean it and then they do something just the opposite. Take guns. Lately all kinds of grown-ups have been talking about putting guns in schools and saying that we need to make sure there are officers in schools to protect kids from the bad guys. Some grownups even think the teacher should have a gun right in the classroom, just in case something happens, so they’ll be ready. You never know, you know? But then these same grown-ups turn around and get all mad because a little kid was talking about a gun. Not a real gun. Just a toy! That’s right.

From motorsports to mountaineering, those risks are accepted by participants and minimized as much as possible.

Thank you for your support To the Editor: On behalf of the Newton Local School District, the board of education and the students of Newton Schools, I would like to once again thank the Covington Eagles for their recent donation of nearly $6,000 to our school. We will use this money to fund college scholarships to

deserving graduating seniors of the class of 2013 and to defray the cost of installing an electric video screen with projector in our junior gym. We are extremely grateful for the relationship we have with the Eagles. The Eagles continue to give to our school, as they have for years, without asking or expecting anything in return. As I have said so often, with it being even truer today, the

Covington Eagles contributions have made a tremendous impact on our school. Once again, thank you Covington Eagles for your tremendous generosity over the years and especially with the most recent donations. It was unexpected but very much appreciated. — Pat McBride Superintendent

I’ve got (more than) two tickets to paradise In the past week, I’ve fully realized how stressful buying concert tickets can be. That’s because I did the whole ordeal three times. Yes, I purchased tickets for three concerts in only a matter of days. I need an intervention. The process is just all too simple — and yet agonizing. First, you have to decide which unfortunate one of your friends will be responsible for charging an astronomical amount of money to her credit card. Next is the actual buying of tickets, in which you panic while waiting to be logged in and then scramble to type in all the info while the clock ticks down. Just remember not to refresh your browser. And then if you’re the lucky one who charged the tickets, you must constantly pester your friends to pay up. Oh, the joys of going to a concert. But really, I enjoy it immensely. Tonight I’m seeing Maroon 5, Neon Trees and Owl City in Columbus, and I can honestly say I’ve been looking forward to this very night since I bought tickets a few months ago. And I’m already excited for the three concerts I bought tickets to recently. First I bought Hunter Hayes tickets for the Fraze in Kettering. I may know only one of his songs,

Natalie Knoth Troy Daily News Columnist but “Wanted” makes my heart flutter every time I hear it on the radio. The chance to hear it performed live in all its glory certainly justified the lawn ticket. Plus I have plenty of time till summer to download at least a few other songs. Next came tickets to — you guessed it — the Gentlemen of The Road Stopover. I started listening to Mumford & Sons when I was a senior in college — and not exactly by choice. My roommates used to blast it in our apartment, and I’m not gonna lie, the folksy sound was definitely an acquired taste. I still know only a few of Mumford’s hit songs, but they’re the type that tug on the heartstrings and replay in your head over and over again. Also, the Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros song “Home” will forever make me nostalgic.

My final concert ticket purchased last week was to the 98 Degrees, New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men tour. We snagged some of the last tickets, conveniently located behind the stage. Whatever. We’re in it for the experience. While concerts are obscenely expensive sometimes, they’re totally worth it for the sentimental value. My first concert was Gavin DeGraw with Howie Day. I’m pretty sure I was a senior in high school. My knowledge of live music was so limited that I had no concept of an “encore.” I went home and told my parents that because of the crowd’s thunderous applause and cheering, Gavin decided to come back out and play another number. We were a special audience! I reasoned. Clearly I was a sheltered child. My next couple concerts were both Backstreet Boys, the first of which was nothing short of a surreal experience. It’s a long story, but basically my friend Daniella and I ran into Nick and AJ on our way to the bathroom before the concert started. We’ve got the pictures to prove it. In college I also saw The Fray front row. This wasn’t a case where we dropped a boatload of money to get up close. Nope, with

the concert being general admission, we stood outside in freezing temperatures for seven hours to claim our territory. We were first in line, and I’ve never been colder in my life. On several occasions I actually considered bailing and hiding out in a local Starbucks, skipping the concert entirely, though, it was well worth it in the end, as the show was phenomenal. My lips are purple in all the pictures my friends took, even hours after getting inside for the show. Some other concerts included John Mayer’s Battle Studies tour (absolutely amazing); Goo Goo Dolls at OU; Miley Cyrus in Central Park; Coldplay in Rockefeller Center; Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw and Jake Owen for Brothers of the Sun; and Justin Bieber in Louisville, as you’ll recall from a past column. (I know you’re jealous.) I’ve still got a few acts I’d like to see, including Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift and Eric Church, simply so I could hear “Springsteen” performed live. My favorite line in the song encapsulates all I love about music and concerts: “Funny how a melody sounds like a memory.” Amen.

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Jazz musician Donald Byrd, a leading hard-bop trumpeter of the 1950s who collaborated on dozens of albums with top artists of his time and later enjoyed commercial success with hit jazz-funk fusion records such as “Black Byrd,” has died. He was 80. He died Feb. 4 in Delaware, according to Haley Funeral Directors in the Detroit suburb of Southfield, Mich., which is handling arrangements. It didn’t have details on his death. Byrd, who was also a pioneer in jazz education, attended Cass Technical High School in Detroit, played in military bands in the Air Force and moved to New York in 1955. The trumpeter, whose given name was Donaldson Toussaint L’Ouverture Byrd II, rose to national prominence when he joined Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers later that year, filling the seat in the bebop group held by his idol Clifford Brown. He soon became one of the most in-demand trumpeters on the New York scene, playing with Max Roach, Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk. He also began his recording career by leading sessions for Savoy and other labels. In 1958, he signed an exclusive recording contract with the Blue Note label and formed a band with a fellow Detroit native, baritone saxophonist Pepper Adams, making their label debut with the 1959 album “Off to the Races.” The band became one of the leading exponents of the hard-bop style, which evolved from

Procession escorts ex-Navy SEAL Kyle to burial AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — After a 200-mile journey, former Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle was buried Tuesday in Austin as his family members and fellow SEALS looked on amid the sounds of drums and bagpipes. A giant Texas flag flew at half-staff over the Texas State Cemetery as Kyle was laid to rest. Kyle, considered to be the deadliest sniper in U.S. military history, was killed along with a friend earlier this month while at a North Texas gun range. A white hearse carrying Kyle’s flag-draped coffin was among 200 vehicles in a procession that left Tuesday morning from Kyle’s hometown of Midlothian, about 25 miles southwest of Dallas, to travel to Austin. Many motorists pulled to the side of roads to watch the procession that included motorcycles, motor coaches, police cruisers and other vehicles. Larry Key, one of about 100 Patriot Guard Riders who gathered for the event, said he came in

Kyle, 37, completed four tours in Iraq and wrote the best-selling book “American Sniper.” “It’s our way of honoring Chris and his family,” said Key, a Vietnam veteran from Denton. In Austin, hundreds of

people gathered on roads stretching nearly a mile from the cemetery. Many who came to watch the procession were combat veterans in leather jackets who parked their motorcycles three wide around the permitted area of the gravesite.

Others were businessmen in suits on their lunch break from the nearby Capitol, families with strollers and at least one jogger taking a break from an afternoon run. Mike Lamb, 24, stood about a half-mile from the cemetery wearing a mus-

DETROIT (AP) — A lawyer for Kwame Kilpatrick attacked the credibility of three key witnesses who testified at the former Detroit mayor’s corruption trial, telling jurors Tuesday that they were “bought and paid for” through plea deals with the government. James Thomas urged the jury during his closing argument to find reasonable doubt in the government’s case, which included weeks of testimony about Kilpatrick’s alleged misdeeds during his nearly seven years in office, including bribery, extortion, conspiracy and fraud. He said Kilpatrick’s access to large amounts of cash was due to savings and gifts from city workers and allies in the community. Thomas was deeply skeptical about very successful Detroit-area businessmen being portrayed as extortion victims who

southwest of Fort Worth, on the afternoon of Feb. 2. Routh later fled in Kyle’s truck. According to a search warrant, Routh told his sister and brother-in-law that the men “were out shooting target practice and he couldn’t trust them so he killed them before they could kill him.” On Monday, some 7,000 people attended a twohour memorial service for Kyle at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. Kyle’s coffin was placed at the Dallas Cowboys’ star at midfield. His widow, Taya Kyle, told the crowd she was broken but that her family would “put one foot in front of the other” to get through their grief. She said she told her two children that they will remember Kyle’s silly side, Texas twang and the prayers they prayed together. Littlefield’s funeral was held Friday in Midlothian. Afterward, Littlefield’s relatives said the outing with Routh was intended to be therapeutic.

Because of that, he was at first reluctant to give his name. But he then rationalized that it didn’t matter. Next month, Lamb is leaving for boot camp in the Marines. “(Kyle) was the last person that I would have expected to end up like that,” Lamb said. “Because he was so into Wounded Warriors and helping soldiers with (post-traumatic stress disorder). He was a warrior overseas and at home.” An Iraq War veteran, Eddie Ray Routh, 25, has been charged in the killings of Kyle and his friend Chad Littlefield. Routh’s brother-in-law told authorities that Routh had recently been diagnosed with PTSD. Authorities say Kyle, Littlefield and Routh arrived together at the Rough Creek Lodge shooting range, about 50 miles

Ferguson “works in the cold and digs in the dirt,” Thomas said. “He has to pull up sewers that no one wants to touch. That’s hard work.” Kilpatrick, his father, Bernard Kilpatrick, and Ferguson are charged with conspiring to rake in cash through rigged contracts, bribes and other criminal acts. Prosecutors gave their closing argument Monday, accusing Kwame Kilpatrick of turning city hall into a “private profit machine” where he spent more than $800,000 beyond his mayoral salary. Thomas had a lot of ground to cover in his final remarks because Kilpatrick, 42, is charged with 30 crimes.

Hittle said it was his bottle of Vicodin for work. Hittle consented to three field sobriety tests and failed all three tests. Officers conducted a search of the vehicle and located a small marijuana roach in an ashtray and 12 empty beer cans. Hittle refused the Breathalyzer test at the scene. Hittle’s license was verified as suspended. He was cited for the speed violation, driving under suspension and OVI. The marijuana roach and pills were seized for evidence of the OVI. Hittle was given copies of his citation along with a copy of the BMV 2255 form and was released to his mother, who picked him up, as well as the vehicle. Hittle’s mother provided another prescription bottle of Hittle’s for the Vicodin that was filled in November of 2012. Officers advised Hittle the pills were seized at that time and could be released back to him with proper prescription identification.

Dora Schwebel “We want Schwebel’s!” That slogan and the bright, smiling clown on loaves of fresh bread are the legacy of the marketing and business genius of Dora Schwebel, the business half of the married couple who started baking bread in their Campbell, Ohio, kitchen in 1906. Dora and Joseph Schwebel sold their first bread, Jewish rye bread, door-to-door to neighbors, largely immigrant steelworkers. Soon after, horses and wagons transported their bread, still warm from the oven, to mom-and-pop stores. By 1914, Dora’s tenacity and business acumen made it possible for families to purchase Schwebel’s bread at local food stores. By 1923, a fleet of six trucks delivered fresh Schwebel’s bread to an ever-growing market. The Schwebels took a big step that year, investing $25,000 in a new bakery that allowed them to produce, distribute and grow in their expanding market. Joseph died in 1928, leaving Dora, with six young children, as the sole owner and president of the growing business. Facing many obstacles – including some perceptions about a woman’s role and capabilities in society and the stock market crash of 1929, the family and the company survived. During the Great Depression Dora created Happy the Clown, a figure that still appears on Schwebel’s bread wrappers, to brighten spirits and serve as a symbol of hope. A larger bakery was built in 1936 and expanded in 1938 and 1941, doubling production and efficiency. Through it all, Dora still found the time and financial resources to help the less fortunate. She was honored by the nation of Israel in 1958 and elected to the National Council of American Friends of Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She established a scholarship endowment fund at Brandeis University and a science laboratory at Youngstown State University. Eventually, Dora was named one of Youngstown’s most influential people of the 20th century. A bronze replica of Schwebel’s 100 millionth loaf was presented to Dora in 1959. In 1964, she died at age 76, leaving the business to her children and grandchildren. Today, 10 third- and fourth-generation Schwebel family members work in the business.

Brother’s complaints seem to be irrational Dear Annie: My brother, "Jay," and his wife have an adopted daughter, "Anna," who is now 3 years old. We adore her. Jay and I recently got into an argument. He said they were angry that we didn't call Anna on her birthday. I was surprised by this, as we had already wished her a happy birthday in person, with a gift and a card at her party a few days prior to her actual birthday. When Jay and I were kids, we were always happy to receive a card and a gift from our aunts and uncles. We never expected them to call, as well. In addition, Jay said that they were angry that my husband and I didn't take time off of work to be at the courthouse to celebrate the "official" adoption six months after Anna was born. We told him at the time that we couldn't take time off of work and would celebrate with them at their home, which we did. At that time, Jay said it was fine, but now, it apparently wasn't good enough. When my husband and I adopted our oldest child, we never demanded that anyone take the day off of work to be at the courthouse, nor to be at the hospital when our younger kids were born. Annie, we celebrated Anna's adoption multiple times — right after her birth, at her baptism, when we gave them a baby shower and then at their home after the courthouse. I reminded Jay of these things and told him we love Anna and don't like his implication that we don't care. My brother used to be easygoing until he married his wife. Now they expect a parade every time Anna opens her eyes. Are Jay's expectations reasonable? Should we call Anna on her birthday even when we've already celebrated with her? They act as if the world revolves around them. — Can't Keep Up Dear Can't: Attending Anna's birthday party and giving her a gift was sufficient. It's also lovely to call on the actual birthday, but it is not an obligation. The rest of Jay's complaints are irrational and self-centered. We don't recommend arguing with him. He won't see things your way. Placate and ignore. Dear Annie: Our daughter is getting married in July. We decided to give her a lump sum for the wedding, and she created a budget to handle all aspects of the event. Unfortunately, she selected a wedding gown based on the price, and it does not flatter her figure. My wife and I would like to offer to purchase a more attractive gown, but we don't know how to approach the subject. Any suggestions? — North Carolina Dear North Carolina: Are you certain that your daughter selected this design solely because of the price? Your financial assistance might only serve to purchase an equally unflattering gown in a more expensive fabric. Keep in mind that alterations can work wonders, and Mom could enlist the help of the seamstress to ascertain whether your daughter is unhappy with her gown. If so, it's perfectly fine to say you want her to have something closer to the dress of her dreams. Otherwise, please repeat the old saying that "all brides are beautiful." Dear Annie: This is for "Tired in Nebraska," whose husband has sleep apnea and refuses to wear a CPAP. I'm an orthodontist who has successfully fit many patients with a dental sleep appliance that is very comfortable to wear. Sleep centers do not always mention their availability, but it should not be difficult to find an orthodontist or general dentist who will fit her husband. These appliances are covered by insurance with a prescription from a physician and are the next best treatment to CPAP devices, which many people cannot tolerate. — Sympathetic Orthodontist Dear Sympathetic: Many readers recommended a dental appliance that can help with apnea and is easier to wear. Thanks to all who suggested it. Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Please reprint recipe for Heloise’s ‘Olive Nut Dip’ Dear Heloise: I have lost your mother’s olive spread recipe. Could you please reprint it, since I cannot remember it by memory? — Nora M. in Texas Nora, here is one of the mostoften-asked-for recipes: Heloise’s Olive Nut Dip or Sandwich Spread, which my mother made all the time! I’ve added some “new” updates where I substitute low-fat versions of some ingredients. So, you can mix and match! Gather the following ingredients: 8 ounces cream cheese (regular, low-fat or no-fat), softened 1/2 cup mayonnaise or no-fat mayo/no-fat sour cream 1 cup chopped or sliced green

Hints from Heloise Columnist olives or salad olives 2 tablespoons of juice from the olive jar Dash of ground pepper (more, if you like) 1/2 cup chopped pecans Mix the ingredients together and refrigerate an hour or longer. If you want to change it up, add hot sauce, jalapenos or

any other spice you like. This is one of many family recipes included in my All-Time Favorite Recipes pamphlet. To receive one, send $5 and a stamped (66 cents), selfaddressed, long envelope to: Heloise/Recipes, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 782795001.

These are the largest of all mushrooms and have a taste

very much like meat. Many restaurants offer them as a sandwich or grilled like a hamburger. This is my favorite way to enjoy them! Here are some mushroom hints: Store them in the refrigerator in the package they came in. If you buy them loose, then store them in a brown paper bag in the refrigerator. Before using (not storing), gently get rid of dirt with a damp paper towel or soft brush. Don’t soak in water, but you can clean them in cool running water. Eat up, as these mushrooms are cholesterol-free and low in calories, fat and sodium! — Heloise



Wednesday, February 13, 2013













BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You feel the need to be yourself now, which is why it’s hard to control your feelings. In love relationships, you will feel greater emotional depth. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You want to withdraw from others today because you need peace and quiet. Because you’ve been in the public eye lately, you need a breather. (Ya think?) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your contact with friends is important today. In fact, you might feel parental or nurturing to someone. (You’ll also be jealous a friend pays more attention to someone else.) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The details of your private life might be made public today, especially in the eyes of bosses, parents and VIPs. Knowing this, you might want to do a little damage control. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You have a strong urge to get away from it all. Therefore, travel if you can, or explore more of life through books, film or talking to people from other countries. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) All your encounters with others are intense today. (Actually, they’ve been intense for the past 48 hours.) Just be cool. This is nothing you can’t handle. (And it’s gone by tomorrow.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Conflicts with others might be quite emotional because the Moon is opposite your sign today. In part, this is because your partnerships or friendships seem so important today, whereas some days you hardly think about them. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Do whatever you can to get better organized today, because it will make you feel happy. You want to feel you’re on top of your game. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a flirtatious, playful day! Enjoy sports, movies, the arts and playful times with children. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) If you have a chance to cocoon at home today, you’ll be happy. This is a perfect day to get away from the busyness of the world around you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A busy day! You’ve got places to go, things to do, people to see. Time spent with siblings and neighbors will be particularly important. Enjoy short trips. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your focus is on money and cash flow today. And yes, why is there always so much month left at the end of the money? YOU BORN TODAY People find you to be witty and entertaining; and indeed, you are quick-witted and adroit. In particular, you can be unusually succinct and to the point. You love to tell jokes and stories. You also have an earthy side, especially when you want to relax with friends. Work hard to build or construct something in the coming year, because your rewards soon will follow. Birthdate of: Rob Thomas, musician; Carl Bernstein, journalist; Meg Tilly, actress.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Ash Wednesday, Feb. 13, the 44th day of 2013. There are 321 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 13, 1943, during World War II, the U.S. Marine Corps Women’s Reserve was officially established. On this date: • In 1542, the fifth wife of England’s King Henry VIII, Catherine Howard, was executed for adultery. • In 1861, Abraham Lincoln was officially declared winner of the 1860 presidential election as electors cast their ballots. • In 1920, the League of Nations

recognized the perpetual neutrality of Switzerland. • In 1935, a jury in Flemington, N.J. found Bruno Richard Hauptmann guilty of first-degree murder in the kidnap-slaying of the son of Charles and Anne Lindbergh. (Hauptmann was later executed.) • In 1945, during World War II, Allied planes began bombing the German city of Dresden. The Soviets captured Budapest, Hungary, from the Germans. • In 1980, the 13th Winter Olympics opened in Lake Placid, N.Y. • One year ago: President Barack Obama unveiled a record $3.8 trillion

election-year budget plan, calling for stimulus-style spending on roads and schools and tax hikes on the wealthy to help pay the costs. • Today’s Birthdays: U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. Charles E. “Chuck” Yeager (ret.) is 90. Actress Kim Novak is 80. Actor George Segal is 79. Actress Carol Lynley is 71. Singermusician Peter Tork (The Monkees) is 71. Actress Stockard Channing is 69. Talk show host Jerry Springer is 69. Actor Bo Svenson is 69. Singer Peter Gabriel is 63. Actor David Naughton is 62. Singer Henry Rollins is 52. Actor Neal McDonough is 47. Actress Mena Suvari is 34.

briefed the news media under tight security with Dorner on the loose. A short time after Smith spoke Tuesday, smoke began to rise from the cabin in the snow-covered woods near Big Bear Lake, a resort town about 80 miles east of Los Angeles. Flames then engulfed the building images that were broadcast on live television around the world. TV helicopters showed the fire burning freely with no apparent effort to extinguish it. “We have reason to believe that it is him,” said San Bernardino County sheriff’s spokeswoman Cynthia Bachman, adding that she didn’t know how the fire started. She noted there was gunfire between the person in the cabin and officers around the home before the blaze began.

Until Tuesday, authorities didn’t know whether Dorner was still near Big Bear Lake, where they found his burnedout pickup last week. Around 12:20 p.m. Tuesday, deputies got a report of a stolen pickup truck, authorities said. The location was directly across the street from where law enforcement set up their command post on Thursday and not far from where Dorner’s pickup was abandoned. The owner of the vehicle taken Tuesday described the suspect as looking similar to Dorner. A warden for the

The official later told the AP that a charred body was found in the burned cabin. The official requested anonymity because of the ongoing investigation. Officials were waiting for the fire to burn out before approaching the ruins to search for a body. Police say Dorner began his run on Feb. 6 after they connected the slayings of a former police captain’s daughter and her fiance with an angry Facebook rant they said he posted. Threats against the LAPD led officials to assign officers to protect officers and their families. Within hours of the release of photos of the 6-foot, 270-pounder described as armed and “extremely dangerous,” police say, Dorner unsuccessfully tried to steal a boat in San Diego to flee to Mexico and opened fire on two patrol cars in Riverside County, shooting three officers and killing one. Jumpy officers guarding one of the targets named in the rant shot and injured two women delivering newspapers Thursday in Torrance because they mistook their pickup truck for Dorner’s. Police found weapons and

camping gear inside the charred truck in Big Bear. Helicopters using heat-seeking technology searched the forest from above while scores of officers, some using bloodhounds, scoured the ground and checked hundreds of vacation cabins many vacant this time of year in the area. A snowstorm hindered the search and may have helped cover his tracks, though authorities were hopeful he would leave fresh footprints if hiding in the wilderness. Dorner’s anger with the department dated back at least five years, when he was fired for filing a false report accusing his training officer of kicking a mentally ill suspect. Dorner, who is black, claimed in the rant that he was the subject of racism by the department and fired for doing the right thing. He said he would get even with those who wronged him as part of his plan to reclaim his good name.

Los Angeles Police Commander Andrew Smith, left, briefs the media about Christopher Jordan Dorner, during a news conference in front of the Police Administration Building in Los Angeles Tuesday.

California Department of Fish and Wildlife traveling down Highway 38 recognized a man who fit Dorner’s description traveling in the opposite direction. The officer pursued the vehicle and there was a shooting at 12:42 p.m. in which the wildlife vehicle was hit numerous times and the suspect escaped on foot after crashing his truck. After holing up in the cabin, there was a second gunbattle with San Bernardino County deputies, two of whom were shot. One died and the other was expected to live after undergoing surgery. “We’re heartbroken,” Big Bear Lake Mayor Jay Obernolte said of the deputy’s death and the wounding of his colleague. “Words can’t express how grateful we are for the sacrifice those men have made in defense of the community and our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families.” The man believed to be Dorner never came out of the cabin, and a single shot was heard inside before the cabin was engulfed in flames, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press.


BIG BEAR, Calif. (AP) — The extraordinary manhunt for the former Los Angeles police officer suspected of three murders converged Tuesday on a mountain cabin where authorities believe he barricaded himself inside, engaged in a shootout that killed a deputy and then never emerged as the home went up in flames. A single gunshot was heard from within, and a charred body was found inside. If the man inside proves to be Christopher Dorner, as authorities suspect, the search for the most wanted man in America over the last week would have ended the way he had expected death, with the police pursuing him. Thousands of officers had been on the hunt for the former Navy reservist since police said he launched a campaign to exact revenge against the Los Angeles Police Department for his firing. They say he threatened to bring “warfare” to officers and their families, spreading fear and setting off a search for him across the Southwest and Mexico. “Enough is enough. It’s time for you to turn yourself in. It’s time to stop the bloodshed,” LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith said at a news conference held outside police headquarters in Los Angeles, a starkly different atmosphere than last week when officials

• Girls Basketball Xenia Christian 61, Troy Christian 57 TROY — The Xenia Christian Ambassadors (12-9, 83 Metro Buckeye Conference) connected on eight 3-pointers as a team Monday night, rallying from an eight-point deficit heading into the fourth quarter to steal a 61-57 victory away from the Troy Christian Eagles Monday night. With the loss, the Eagles (184, 10-2) still win a share of the MBC championship, but they are forced to share it with Yellow Springs. “We just ran into a hot-shooting Xenia Christian team,” Troy Christian coach Dick Steineman said. “They were shooting the lights out.” Amanda Slone and Lydia Demmitt both posted doubledoubles for Troy Christian. Slone finished with a game-high 19 points and 10 rebounds, while Demmitt added 14 points and 11 rebounds.

Vikings power past Bulldogs, 45-37 BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor

snap skid CINCINNATI (AP) — The ball got knocked loose near the basket, and the floor was soon covered in Bearcats diving on their chests to try to come up with it. Three Cincinnati players hit the floor hard, eventually getting the ball and sending a message. The Bearcats weren’t messing around anymore. Sean Kilpatrick and JaQuon Parker scored 19 points apiece, and Cincinnati turned up the defensive pressure and emerged from a two-game slump by beating Villanova 68-50 on Tuesday night. “Honestly, we attacked the ball today on defense and did a lot of trapping and a lot of rotations,” Kilpatrick said. “Everyone was active. We came into this game today not even thinking about offense. Everyone came in with a defensive mindset.” Cincinnati (19-6, 7-5 Big East) had lost its last two games with lousy shooting and soft defense. The defense is what bothered coach Mick Cronin the most. “Any player will tell you this: You cannot play offense and you’re worried about missing,” Cronin said. “Just shoot the ball. You can’t think, ‘Aw man, I missed the last one,’ or, ‘We’re struggling on offense.’ We were

In what is quickly becoming a familiar situation, the Miami East Vikings powered through. Locked in a tight game against Milton-Union through three quarters, the Vikings locked things down on the defensive end — not allowing any points for the first six minutes of the fourth — and used their muscle and strength in the post to pull away for a 45-37 victory over the Bulldogs Tuesday night on the road.

WEST MILTON “It was nice to come away from one of these on the winning side,” Miami East coach Allen Mack said. “Fairlawn, Graham, Troy and now Milton-Union — we’ve now won two of these close ones and lost two of them. We’ve been looking for some consistency, and tonight we found some.” Milton-Union (13-8) started off the game playing at a torrid pace, beating the Vikings down the floor with its speed on the fast break — where Kenton Dickison was typically there to finish. After an eight-point run late in the first quarter, the Miami East’s A.J. Hickman protects the ball from Milton-Union’s

Rolen turns down spring training invite GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Third baseman Scott Rolen declined the Cincinnati Reds’ offer to attend spring training, but stopped short of saying he’s ready to retire. The seven-time All-Star informed the team of his decision on Tuesday, when Reds pitchers and catchers reported for the start of camp. Rolen, who turns 38 on April 4, had been mulling an offer to fill a reserve role with the NL Central champions. He’s been limited each of the last three seasons by chronic

problems with his left shoulder and back spasms. “Right now, I’m simply not ready to make a commitment,” Rolen said, in a statement released by the team. “I would like to leave my options open, without closing any doors. I am looking forward to all of the challenges, both personally and professionally, I will face in the future.” Rolen became a free agent after last season, when he batted .245 in 92 games with eight homers and 39 RBIs. He missed

time with the shoulder and back problems. Todd Frazier is set to take over at third base this season, but the Reds offered Rolen a chance to stay in a reduced role. “It’s tough for me because he’s a good guy to talk to every day about third base,” Frazier said, after learning of Rolen’s decision. “I understand he wants to be with his family or whatever he wants to do. All the best to him. But I’d like him to be here so I could get more knowledge from him, for sure.” Rolen’s arrival in Cincinnati

coincided with the Reds’ resurgence. General manager Walt Jocketty traded for Rolen midway through the 2009, bringing in a veteran leader for a young team. The Reds won the NL Central two of the last three years, with Rolen becoming one of the clubhouse’s leaders. “Scott made significant contributions to our team’s recent success, and it isn’t a coincidence we made the playoffs in two of his three full seasons here,”

■ Major League Baseball

Rolen Rolen is the only third baseman in major league history to get at least 2,000 hits, 500 doubles, 300 homers, 1,200 RBIs and six Gold Glove awards. His 517 doubles rank 45th on the career list. He has won eight Gold Glove awards, third-most among third baseman behind Hall of Famers Brooks Robinson (16) and Mike Schmidt (10). He won

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Jocketty said. Manager Dusty Baker said Rolen’s absence would be felt deeply. “It would be like losing a member of the family,” Baker said. “He was a leader. Whenever you lose a leader like that, someone else comes along to take over. We don’t know who that is, but a leader will come out.”

his last Gold Glove in 2010, when he played in 134 games. He was limited to fewer than 100 games each of the last two seasons. “I think he was playing through some pain for most of the time he was out here,” reliever Sean Marshall said. “That’s the sign of a gamer. He was doing it for 17 years. I’ve been doing it for seven and it seems like a long time. I can only imagine

how much of a toll it takes on your body to play every day for that many years.” Rolen was only the seventh player unanimously picked as the NL rookie of the year in 1997 with the Phillies, who traded him to the Cardinals midway through the 2002 season. He had his best years in St. Louis, teaming with Albert Pujols and Jim Edmonds in a formidable lineup. He

helped St. Louis reach the World Series in 2004, when he batted .314 with a career-high 34 homers and 124 RBIs. The Cardinals were swept by the Red Sox for the championship. St. Louis reached the World Series again in 2006, when Rolen batted .296 with 22 homers and 95 RBIs. The Cardinals beat Detroit for the title that time, with Rolen batting

.421 during the five-game World Series. In-between the World Series appearances, Rolen’s injuries started taking a toll. He tore the labrum in his left shoulder in 2005, missed much of the 2007 season with more shoulder problems and was traded to Toronto before the 2008 season. He also missed time that season with a sore left shoulder.

U.S. wrestlers blindsided by vote

IOC votes to strike wrestling from 2020 Olympic slate L A U S A N N E , Switzerland (AP) — For wrestling, this may have been the ultimate body slam: getting tossed out of the Olympic rings. The vote Tuesday by the IOC’s executive board stunned the world’s wrestlers, who see their sport as popular in many countries and steeped in history as old as the Olympics themselves. While wrestling will be included at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, it was cut from the games in 2020, which have yet to be awarded to a host city. 2004 Olympic GrecoRoman champion Khasan Baroev of Russia called the decision “mind-boggling.” “I just can’t believe it. And what sport will then be added to the Olympic program? What sport is worthy of replacing ours?” Baroev told the ITAR-Tass news agency. “Wrestling is popular in many countries — just see how the medals were distributed at the last Olympics.” American Rulan Gardner, who upset threetime Russian Olympic champion Alexander Karelin at the Sydney Games in an epic goldmedal bout known as the “Miracle on the Mat,” was saddened by the decision to drop what he called “a beloved sport.” “It’s the IOC trying to change the Olympics to make it more mainstream and more viewer-friendly instead of sticking to what they founded the Olympics on,” Gardner told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from Logan, Utah. The executive board of the International Olympic Committee reviewed the 26 sports on its summer program in order to remove one of them so it could add one later this year. It decided to cut wrestling and keep modern pentathlon — a sport that combines fencing, horse riding, swimming, running and shooting — and was considered to be the most likely to be dropped. The board voted after reviewing a report by the IOC program commission report that analyzed 39

With no official rankings or recommendations contained in the report, the final decision by the 15member board was also subject to political, emotional and sentimental factors. “This is a process of renewing and renovating the program for the Olympics,” IOC spokesman Mark Adams said. “In the view of the executive board, this was the best program for the Olympic Games in 2020. It’s not a case of what’s wrong with wrestling; it is what’s right with the 25 core sports.” According to IOC documents obtained by the AP, wrestling ranked “low” in several of the technical criteria, including popularity

viewership of 33.5 million and an average of 12.5 million. FILA has 177 member nations, compared to 108 for modern pentathlon. Modern pentathlon, which has been on the Olympic program since the 1912 Stockholm Games, was created by French baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic movement. It also benefited from the work of Juan Antonio Samaranch Jr., the son of the former IOC president who is a UIPM vice president and member of the IOC board. “We were considered weak in some of the scores in the program commission report but strong in others,” Samaranch told the AP. “We played our cards to the best of our ability and stressed the positives.”

Rulon Gardner’s epic upset of Russian wrestling great Alexander Karelin in 2000 remains one of the most compelling moments of the modern Olympics. Starting in 2020, youngsters looking to Gardner and Karelin for inspiration won’t have a chance to excel on the sport’s biggest stage. Gardner and nearly everyone else associated with the sport in the U.S. were jolted Tuesday when Olympic International Committee leaders dropped wrestling from the Summer Games. The move is set to take effect for the 2020 Olympics and eliminates a sport that’s been a staple of both the ancient and modern games. “It’s the IOC trying to change the Olympics to make it more mainstream and more viewer-friendly instead of sticking to what they founded the Olympics on, and that was basically amateur sports,” Gardner told The Associated Press by phone from Logan, Utah. “To get the death penalty out of nowhere.” The decision by the IOC to phase out wrestling will leave the U.S. without one of its most successful Olympic sports. The only sports in which the Americans have won more medals than wrestling is swimming and track and field — and those two have far more medal opportunities. Americans have won a record 113 freestyle Olympic medals, by far the most of any nation. Though the U.S. had slipped in recent Olympic cycles, it bounced back with a pair of London Games gold medalists in Jordan Burroughs — possibly the best wrestler in the world — and Jake Varner. “I do think wrestling people are the strongest in the world, and they’re resilient. And we’ll come out of whatever happens. But short term, yeah, it’s sad,” 2004 Olympic gold medalist and Penn State coach Cael Sanderson said. “I just think of the kids in our program that dream of being Olympic champions. And to think that now that’s no longer an opportunity just so the IOC stay

fresh and continue to rotate sports and whatever their plan is — it’s tough to think about.” Wrestling is also one of the most popular youth sports in the U.S. The National Federation of State High School Associations reports that the sport was sixth among prep boys with nearly 275,000 competing in 201011. is the “Wrestling Olympics. It’s the toughest, grueling, most most demanding and most humbling sport there is. It teaches you so many life lessons,” said Jake Herbert, who wrestled for the U.S. in the London Games. Wrestling will now join seven other sports in applying for inclusion in 2020. The others are a combined bid from baseball and softball, karate, squash, roller sports, sport climbing, wakeboarding and wushu. They will be vying for a single opening in 2020. USA Wrestling execudirector Richard tive Bender calls his sport “one of the most diverse,” with nearly 200 nations from all continents participating. “It is an inclusive sport which provides opportunities worldwide, regardless of geography, race, gender or physical characteristics,” he said. “We look forward to telling the story about wrestling to the International Committee leadership and the entire world about our great sport and why it should be part of the Olympic movement forever.” The IOC executive board will meet in May in St. Petersburg, Russia, to decide which sport or sports to propose for 2020. The final vote will be in September in Buenos Aires, Argentina. “Given the history and tradition of wrestling, and its popularity and universality, we were surprised when the decision was announced,” U.S. Olympic Committee CEO Scott Blackmun said. “It is important to remember that today’s action is a recommendation, and we hope that there will be a meaningful opportunity to discuss the important role that wrestling plays in the sports landscape both in the United States and around the world.”

with the public at the London Games — just below 5 on a scale of 10. Wrestling sold 113,851 tickets in London out of 116,854 available. Wrestling also ranked “low” in global TV audience with a maximum of 58.5 million viewers and an average of 23 million, the documents show. Internet hits and press coverage were also ranked as low. The IOC also noted that FILA — the international wrestling federation — has no athletes on its decisionmaking bodies, no women’s commission, no ethics rules for technical officials and no medical official on its executive board. Modern pentathlon also ranked low in general popularity in London, with 5.2 out of 10. The sport also ranked low in all TV categories, with maximum

■ Boys Basketball



■ CONTINUED FROM 15 start. The target on our back has been huge, and every night we’ve gotten every MBC team’s best shot. It says a lot about the character and the heart that drives this team. “We made two great comebacks in a row just to force overtime, both Friday night (in a win against Yellow Springs) and tonight. It was a real battle, and the kids did not give up.” Christian Salazar scored a career-high 25 points and added 10 rebounds, Ray Zawadzki added 18 points and eight assists, Holden Varvel connected for a careerhigh 15 points and Nathan Kirkpatrick added 10. Trailing by six with 1:55 to go, Varvel and Zawadzki hit 3s to even things up. Miami Valley retook the lead with a pair of free throws, but Salazar scored on a lob to tie things up and force overtime. The Eagles had a pair of chances to win at the end of the first overtime, but a shot at the buzzer rolled off the rim. In the second overtime, though, Troy Christian only allowed two points. “Our defense just beared down and would not be denied,” Zawadzki said. “This is three in a row for us, and our seniors are a combined 33-2 over the last three years in league play. I’m so happy for each and every one of them.” The Eagles close out the regular season at Emmanuel Christian Friday. Troy Christian — 78 Varvel 6-1-15, Thomas 1-2-4, George 2-2-6, Kirkpatrick 3-1-10, Salazar 9-6-25, Zawadzki 3-1118. Totals: 24-23-78. Miami Valley — 70 Donald 4-3-11, Marberry 2-16, Baker 6-3-16, Watson 7-1-17, Smith 8-2-18, Manatee 1-0-2. Totals: 28-10-70.

Russia 69, Newton 36 RUSSIA — The Russia Raiders snapped a sevengame losing streak Tuesday, routing visiting Newton 69-36 in nonleague boys basketball action here.

Tri-Village 55, Lehman 26 SIDNEY — Lehman proved to be no match for No. 2-ranked and unbeaten Tri-Village, losing to the Patriots 55-26 at Lehman Tuesday. The Cavaliers lost their fourth in a row and fall to 9-11 on the year heading to Upper Scioto Valley Friday. David Spearman led the Cavs with nine points. Tri-Village — 55 Werner 2-1-7, Bell 0-1-1, Brubaker 2-6-11, Pipenger 5-416, Linkous 1-0-2, Wilcox 1-4-6, cook 6-0-12. Totals: 18-14-55.

Records: Tri-Village 20-0. Lehman 9-11.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Bulldogs led by as many as six at 18-12 early in the second. But slowly but surely, the Vikings fought their way back into it — thanks to some tough perimeter defense. “It was a total team effort on defense, but we were asking a couple of guys in particular to stop their top scorers,” Mack said. “We have a lot of respect for (Caleb) Poland and (Ben) Stelzer, and we had Franco Villella and Nick Beard on them for most of the night. Franco and Nick made their night pretty tough. When you hold two players of that caliber to a combined nine points, you’ve done a nice job.” “Hats off to Miami East. They came out with a gameplan and executed it,” Milton-Union coach Rusty Berner said. “They took our guards away from us. And towards the end of the game, it seemed like they came away with every 50-50 ball. They wanted it. They wanted it more than we did.” After the Vikings (13-7) put together an eightpoint run of their own in the second quarter, a layup on the break by Dickison — who scored a team-high 13 points — gave the Bulldogs a 23-22 lead at the half. And that’s when Miami East’s big men, Luke House and A.J. Hickman, took control. House and Hickman scored on three straight possessions as the teams traded the lead back and forth to start the half, but then a drive by Conner Hellyer and an interception by House to Beard on the break gave the Vikings a 32-27 lead and forced a Bulldog timeout. “The name of the game is knocking down shots. They did, and we didn’t,” Berner said. “All season our defense has generated

And as the game wore on, our transition opportunities lessened — and when we did get opportunities, we weren’t finishing.” The Bulldogs were able to close to within one at 32-31 after three, but a 3 by Hellyer to kick off the fourth quarter, followed by a jumper and a three-point play by Hickman and a tough bucket inside by House made it 42-31 … with two minutes to play. House had a doubledouble with 13 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Vikings, with nine points and seven rebounds coming in the second half. Hellyer added 10 points, three assists and four steals, Hickman had nine points — seven in the second half — six rebounds and three assists and Beard finished with nine points and five rebounds. “A number of guys played really well. Luke had a double-double and A.J. hit some tough shots,” Mack said. “Conner stepped up and played the top of our defense well, and Nick played his best game in a while. And even all the guys that came in off the bench made important contributions. I was really pleased with the guys’ effort. “They played at the speed they wanted to in the first quarter with 16 points. But then they had to work hard for that 21 that came in the last three quarters. We beat a good team tonight. Rusty’s done a great job getting that

We’ve got to focus on continuing to get better every single day.”

Bearcats ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 still going to win if we scored 58 because our defense was off the charts.” That three-player pileup told the story. “The past four games, nobody on the team has dived on the floor at all,” point guard Cashmere Wright said. “(Cronin) was like, ‘So how are we supposed to win? If we’re not the hungrier team, how are we going to win?’ That’s our staple. We’re known for playing hard defense and diving on the floor and coming up with the ball.” This time, they got a little offense, too. Cincinnati has relied on Kilpatrick for most of its offense lately with Wright on the mend from an injured right knee and left shoulder that will need surgery after the season. Kilpatrick has averaged nearly 21 points over the last seven games, leading

the Bearcats in scoring each time. Wright had 11 points on 3-of-14 shooting, his second-best point total in his last seven games. Villanova (15-10, 6-6) had won its last two games with high-percentage shooting. The Wildcats had a tough time getting open against Cincinnati’s trapping defense and turned it over 19 times. JayVaughn Pinkston led Villanova with 12 points. The Wildcats went only 3 of 13 behind the arc and 7 of 15 on free throws. “Their defense was outstanding, and offensively their guards were outstanding,” Villanova coach Jay Wright said. “Their guards just dominated us. I think it was their team defense, and then we had no answer for their guards.” The Wildcats were coming off one of their best

defensive games, a 68-40 win over South Florida on Saturday that represented the fewest points Villanova had ever allowed in a Big East game. Cincinnati turned the 19 turnovers into 21 points as it pulled away. No. 8 Michigan St. 75, No. 4 Michigan 52 EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gary Harris scored 17 points and Derrick Nix had 14 to help No. 8 Michigan State rout No. 4 Michigan 75-52 on Tuesday night, the rivalry’s first matchup of top 10 teams. The Spartans (21-4, 102 Big Ten) broke a firstplace tie in the conference with No. 1 Indiana. The Wolverines (21-4, 84) have lost three of four, but the closely contested setbacks on the road against the Hoosiers and Wisconsin were nothing like the latest.
