Deputy placed on paid leave Nature of investigation not disclosed BY WILL E SANDERS Ohio Community Media

A sheriff’s deputy placed on paid administrative leave earlier this week isn’t expected to come back to work until the completion of an internal investigation conducted by the department he has worked for over the last decade and a half, according to the Miami County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff ’s Deputy Anthony

TROY Walters was placed on paid leave Tuesday by Sheriff Charles Cox as the sheriff ’s office investigates claims of alleged wrongdoing by the deputy, who was hired by the department in August 1998, said Chief Deputy Dave Duchak. Since the matter is both a personnel and internal matter where no charges have been brought forward at this time, Duchak declined

identifying the specific nature of the allegations, but stated his office is taking the investigation seriously. “There are some allegations brought to our attention and we are now looking into those,” Duchak said. “We need time to look into what was relayed to us.” Walters had most recently been assigned to patrol and provide law enforcement coverage in all of the parks in Miami County. In more of a secondary role, he also attended

In addition, Walters also provided law enforcement presence on park bikeways and helped to promote bicycle safety for adults and children. Duchak added that another deputy has been assigned to fill the role previously held by Walters during the investigation. “The parks are still being maintained,” Duchak said. Walters earns $25.35 an hour, according to sheriff’s office financial figures.

Officials have identified the two people transported to Upper Valley Medical Center for treatment after a two-vehicle crash on Piqua-Troy Road at 8:31 p.m. Thursday. Chief Deputy Dave Duchak of the Miami County Sheriff’s Office said that a pickup truck driven by Joseph R. Spain, 78, of Sidney was traveling on Piqua-Troy Road when Edmund S. Danielewicz, 81, pulled his pickup out of his driveway in the 2700 block of PiquaTroy Road and into the path of the Spain vehicle. The impact caused Spain’s truck to roll one full time, then land on its side on the roadway. The Danielewicz vehicle was spun around by the impact, but remained on its wheels. Neither Danielewicz nor his passenger, Beulah D. Danielewicz, 81, were injured in the crash. Both Spain and his passenger, Virginia Spain, 81, were trapped in their vehicle until freed by Troy Fire Department medics. Both were taken to UVMC. Neither of them were listed as patients at the facility on Friday morning. The crash remains under investigation by Miami County deputies.


Bethel won’t fill fire chief position Assistant chiefs to assume duties BY JOYELL NEVINS Ohio Community Media

The Bethel Township Fire Department has tweaked its department once again, deciding not to hire a new chief at this time.

The fire department had three people in house from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., and a crew on call for each night from Sunday-Friday (the crews rotated each sixth Saturday). There were two problems with the plan, according to Gebhart. The first was that since there were only five officers, one night each week there was no officer on deck. The second was that since they often were coming from home, the response time could be anywhere from 6-10 minutes, he said. The new system was to include

one fire chief, three assistant chiefs, one captain and seven lieutenants, Gebhart said. All are part-time, stipend positions. There also was a bonus system implemented to ensure four people in the station each night. The new financial setup actually saved the city $26,000 in payroll, he said. Thanks to cross training, there also now area two EMT paramedics and two EMT basics on board each night. This means that two different “advanced life support” crews will be able to respond to calls at night. Plus, since the department has employed this setup, the response time is down to 24 minutes, according to Gebhart. Stitzel left of his own accord,

WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans are getting an election-year tax present. Congress voted with rare speed and cooperation Friday to extend a Social Security payroll tax cut for 160 million workers and to renew unemployment benefits for millions more who haven’t seen a paycheck in six months. With lawmakers’ ratings in the gutter, the legislation sped through both the House and Senate and was on its way to President Barack Obama, who saluted the quick passage. Taxpayers have grown accustomed to the 2 percentage point cut in the payroll tax over the past year — around $80 a month for someone earning $50,000 a year and the reduction now will be continued. So will jobless benefits averaging about $300 a week for the long-term unemployed, though the aid AP PHOTO/J.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping began the last day of his U.S. visit Friday by urging closer ties and arguing that Americans benefit from their trade relationship with China. “A prosperous and stable China will not be a threat to any country,” Xi said. “It will only be a positive force for world peace and development.” Xi, who is expected to become president of the world’s most populous nation next year, started his fourth day in the United States at a downtown Los Angeles trade conference hosted by the Chinese Ministry of Commerce. His American counterpart, Vice President Joe Biden, joined him later. California Gov. Jerry Brown and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa both lauded the U.S.-China relationship. “We’ve got a great future

The 16-year-old driver consented to a breathalyzer test and produced results of 0.091 percent blood alcohol content. He was charged with OVI, curfew, underage consumption and license plate violation. The 16-year-old driver submitted to another breathalyzer test of 0.056 BAC at the Covington Police Department and then was released to his grandmother. The 16-year-old driver

said he and his three passengers were at a friend’s house and left to go look for a haunted cemetery and find a grave that supposedly glowed in the dark. One of the two female passengers claimed she had only consumed a moderate amount “of only five beers.” All three of the juvenile passengers, one male and two females, were charged with underage consumption and curfew violations before they were released to their guardians.

calls, he said. The three now rotate as the on-duty supervisor on a weekly basis, bringing the fire department’s command base vehicle home at night in case they need to get back to the station, Gebhart said. “They’re the workhorses anyway,” Gebhart said. “We have three very competent assistant chiefs.” Zimmerman has taken over making the monthly schedule and Schiebrel now oversees payroll. Ehrhart prepares the trustee reports and continues to handle training for the department. “The only difference for our residents is they will go directly to me with complaints or praise,” Gebhart said.

At this point, the township administration is leaving the option open for hiring a fire chief in the future. Right now, though, the department is managing fine without the position, Gebhart said. The $10,000 in payroll savings for the city is a nice bonus as well — especially since the state is cutting their local government funding in half this upcoming year, he said. “It won’t be the deciding factor, but it is one of the factors I am looking at,” Gebhart said. “I think, how could we best spend that $10,000?” Gebhart added that while there are no recruitment issues with the department, they are “always on the lookout” for paramedics.

Chief • Continued from 1 mostly because of time constraints, Gebhart said. He was still a full-time battalion chief for Riverside, and taught fire classes at Sinclair, as well. His reputation was intact when he officially resigned Dec. 31, Gebhart said. “Dave did a wonderful job,” Gebhart said. “He’s the one who taught me fire.” According to Gebhart, as the fire chief, Stitzel’s job was mainly administrative. He submitted for grants, handled the payroll and coordinated the schedule. The three assistant chiefs, Jay Zimmerman, Josh Schiebrel and Andy Ehrhart, were the ones who actually handled the

Regency Court at 3 a.m. Friday. The officer stopped the vehicle due to its license plate light not operating. The officer smelled alcohol in the car but the 16year-old male driver denied drinking and consented to three field sobriety tests. According to the report, the 16-year-old driver showed indicators of alcohol use during the field tests.

together,” said Brown, who announced plans to open a new trade and investment office in China. China is a major trade partner with Los Angeles, which has greatly benefited from its Pacific Rim position and has courted Chinese businesses and their potential jobs. A day earlier, Xi toured the Port of Los Angeles, the nation’s busiest port complex. Nearly 60 percent of the imports moving through the port come from China. U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson also encouraged more Chinese investment, commenting that “America is truly open for business.” However, he called for balancing the economic and trade relationship, which has been a lightning rod for critics of China. Trade between the two countries increased exponentially last year but the U.S. trade deficit also grew by 30 percent, Bryson said.

were to expire in less than two weeks, had been extended only two months during a December congressional fight that seared Republicans. They were determined to avoid a repeat in campaign season. The hard-fought but ultimately bipartisan measure contains the core of Obama’s jobs agenda and promises to pump more than $100 billion into the economy before Election Day. It hands the president a political victory as well, as Republicans called a tactical retreat in hopes of minimizing the gains for Obama and his Democratic allies on Capitol Hill. The Senate approved the measure on a bipartisan 6036 vote minutes after the House passed it on a sweeping 293-132 vote. Obama is expected to sign it shortly after returning from a West Coast fundraising swing. The hope is that the dual measures will inject consumer demand and support a fragile recovery from the

worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. The legislation also would protect doctors treating Medicare patients from a steep cut in their reimbursements under an outdated funding formula. The tax cuts, jobless coverage and higher doctors’ payments will all continue through the end of the year. Many Republicans opposed some or all of the legislation but were eager to wipe the issue from the election-year agenda. The measure would pack $141 billion onto the federal deficit over 2012-2013 and slowly recoup more than $50 billion of that over the coming decade. It may also be the last major bipartisan legislation to make it through a bitterly divided Congress before Election Day. A pile of unfinished business including expiring tax cuts, Pentagon budget disputes and another hike in the nation’s borrowing cap awaits after the election in what promises to be a brutal lame duck session that Capitol Hill veterans are already dreading.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Telegraph, London, on Syria: Recently, the Syrian government carried out the most savage reprisals against its opponents since the recent uprising began. More than 200 people are thought to have been killed by artillery, tanks and mortars in Homs. That figure compares with the worst daily spikes in violence in Iraq in 2006 and 2007. And the death total in Syria over the past 11 months - more than 5,600, according to UN estimates - is well above that over the same period for its still troubled eastern neighbor. The country over which Bashar al-Assad presides has become the most violent in the Middle East. Such a threat to stability in one of the world’s most volatile regions demands an appropriate response from the UN Security Council. Yet that body remains neutered by a Russian and Chinese refusal to accept what they see as undue interference in domestic affairs. On the very day of the Homs massacre, the two vetoed a resolution that supported an Arab League plan calling for Assad to hand over power to his vice-president and for a government of national unity to be formed, followed by elections.

The draft resolution that sought to realize a regime change in Syria did not adequately reflect the state of affairs in this Middle East country. In putting the resolution to the vote, Western powers hoped to further exert pressure on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down, thus paving the way for the removal of a regime that is an obstacle to their policies in the Middle East. By only exerting pressure on the Syrian government and explicitly trying to coerce its leader al-Assad to step down, the resolution sends the message to armed groups and opponents of his regime that they have the support of the international community. This will undoubtedly make the Syrian situation even more complicated and make it impossible for all parties to reach a conciliatory agreement that is in the best interests of the country and its people. We’ve seen what happened in Libya. With the armed intervention by some major Western powers, the Libyan regime was overthrown. But instead of the democracy and freedom they were promised, Libyan people cannot even live in peace as the country is in the danger of falling into a sectarian civil war. It is not a question of whether Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad should step down or not. It is whether the ever-worsening crisis in the country will be brought to an end in such a way that the country will not be plunged into a sectarian civil war and its people plunged into even greater misery.

Everything wrong with the world in 140 characters The day I found out I was pregnant, I hoped for a little girl. Actually, the years before I even knew I was going to have a child, I wanted a little girl. I’m not even going to try and lie to you and tell you that I was “just hoping for a healthy baby,” I was hoping for a healthy baby girl. So the day the ultrasound technician said she was almost, kind-of sure we were possibly having a little girl — that was enough for me — I was having a little girl. Now, this isn’t to say I wouldn’t have been overjoyed with a bouncy baby boy, I would have – I just would have had no idea what on Earth to do with him. You see, I was once a little girl, a very overdramatic, emotional, sensitive little girl. And now I’ve grown into a woman, a very overdramatic, emotional, slightly stronger woman. So I’m not saying that I have anything against having a son, I just knew I wanted a little girl. Despite all the complications I knew would come from having a little girl, I still wanted one. It didn’t matter to me that growing up I never once felt comfortable in my body (nor did most of my female friends and the ones who said they

Amanda Stewart Troy Daily News Columnist did, were probably lying). And speaking of lying, we do it a lot, especially when we’re growing up, to parents, friends and boys. Oh and boys, boy oh boy do they bring a lot of drama into your life when you are a girl. From the ages of 13-18 I had a good five or six boyfriends, three of whom friends tried to steal from me, one who was successfully stolen. Because back then, we were girls. We’re catty, overbearing, drama queen girls who are convinced the world is going to end if we don’t get a prom date. Sure, there are a few girls out there who will say they weren’t like that at all, but again, they’re probably lying. Regardless of the hot mess I knew I’d be in for come puberty, I

wanted a little girl. This past Sunday, was the first time in almost two years of motherhood that I wished for a son. This past Sunday, was the first time I really, truly saw what I had in store for myself. Chris Brown (if you don’t know who this is just do me a huge favor and Google it yourself, I don’t have enough column space to begin with everything that’s wrong with him) performed at the Grammys. That’s right, the same man who beat, bit and bruised girlfriend and famous pop singer Rihanna, three years later was on stage doing his thing (which really isn’t a big deal, seeing as how he won an actual Grammy the year before). Which, well, we all know my opinion on the high and mighty celebs making their seemingly painless return to their popdom. It must be nice to know that in Hollywood, if you’re pretty enough, you really can do no wrong. And apparently, if you’re pretty enough, you can beat your pop star girlfriend so badly you put her in the hospital and still have not only the approval of other women, but the admiration. That’s right. Despite raising

both fists to his girlfriend three years prior, hundreds of women took to their Twitter accounts on Sunday night with tweets like “Chris Brown can punch me in the face anytime he wants to as long as he kisses it” and “I don’t know why Rihanna complained, Chris Brown can beat me any time he wants.” Seriously, I can’t even make this garbage up. I, myself, love dark humor. I like horror movies and I like pretty boys. But I don’t like real, live abuse. Not only is it absolutely disgusting, it’s absolutely not funny. At all. What these women said, regardless if they were kidding or not, is everything in the world that makes me nervous about raising a daughter. Here I thought we were living in 2012. Apparently though, a few of us are still stuck in the 1920s, which is unfortunate for the women who actually had to live during that time and fight for the rights we so blatantly abuse today. How do you stop your daughter from being one of these girls?

DAR celebrates with awards tea PIQUA — The PiquaLewis Boyer Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution met Feb. 11 at the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Piqua for the organization’s annual awards tea. Regent Kathy Thompson welcomed students, parents, teachers, guests and DAR members. Shannon Shafer, vice regent, read about the history of DAR, Lewis Boyer and the merger of the Sidney DAR with the Piqua DAR. DAR members volunteer more than 250,000 hours annually to veteran patients, award thousands of dollars in scholarships and financial aid each year to students, and support schools for underserved children with annual donations exceeding $1 million. As one of the most inclusive genealogical societies in the country, DAR boasts 170,000 members in 3,000 chapters across the United States and internationally. Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross, was a member of DAR. Several of the wives of presidents of the United States have been members, including Laura Bush, Barbara Bush, Rosalyn Carter, Nancy Reagan and Mamie Eisenhower. The Piqua chapter is one of the oldest chapters in Ohio, having organized on June 14, 1896. On July 7, 1927, the Lewis Boyer Chapter was organized in Sidney with most of its charter members being past members of the Piqua chapter. These two chapters merged Dec. 7, 1989, to form the Piqua-Lewis Boyer Chapter.

History contest

DAR awards DAR Good Citizens is a two-part program intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship. The award portion of the program recognizes one student in the senior class. The student selected as the high school’s DAR Good Citizen must have the qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism. Winners present were Marie Witer from Anna, Renee Gilbride from Bethel, Hailey Billing from Botkins, Paxton Edwards from Fairlawn, Daniel Sehlhorst from Lehman Catholic, Andrea Fetters from MiltonUnion and Holly Black from Piqua High School. Other winners unable to attend were Lauren Jenkins from Christian Academy, Darren Clark from Covington, Trinity Lavy from Newton and Julianne Daltorio from Sidney High School. Sandy Miller is the DAR Good Citizens chair and she presented the awards. The second part of the DAR Good Citizens Award is a voluntary participation in the scholarship contest portion of the program. The first part includes a listing of activities, offices, awards, community service, future education, career plans and a description of the importance of the four qualities of a DAR Good Citizen and how the student has tried to exhibit these qualities. The second part is the writing of an essay in the presence of a faculty or DAR member within a two-hour time limit and without the use of reference materials. This year’s topic was “Our American Heritage and our Responsibility for Preserving it: Describe the Freedoms and Responsibilities of a Good Citizen.” The third-place winner in the scholarship contest is Lauren Jenkins, Christian Academy Schools; second place, Julianne Daltorioa, Sidney High School; and first place, Andrea Fetters from Milton-Union High School. Fetters received a $50 savings bond and her scholarship has been forwarded for judging at the Southwest District level. In addition, the traveling trophy will be displayed at her school, which is a replica of the “Madonna of the Trail.”

Beach scholarship Judy Deeter chaired and awarded the Dorothy Walker Beach Scholarship. Mrs. Beach, for whom this scholarship is named, served as the Piqua Chapter NSDAR as Regent from 1973-1976. The scholarship is named in her honor and awarded to an outstanding senior student in the Miami County. The scholarship is based on academic record, test results, character, leadership qualities, participation in extracurricular activities and need. This year the scholarship was awarded to Cheyenne Quillen, a senior at Newton High School. She plans to attend Ohio Northern University and major in criminal justice and psychology. Former volleyball coach Ken Ford said, “Cheyenne exhibits many of the qualities one looks for in aspiring students.” She received a $500 college scholarship.

The American History Essay contest is for students in grades fifth through eighth in a public, private or parochial school, or those who are home schooled. Each year the topic of the essay writing contest changes. The 2011-2012 American history writing topic was “Young America Takes a Stand: The War of 1812.” Writers were asked to pretend they were alive during the War of 1812 and had a friend who has become famous in history because of standing up for America during that exciting, but dangerous time. Writers are then asked to describe the person and how he or she stood up for America and explain why it is important to honor such heroes when the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 is celebrated. Students in fifth grade were required to write 300600 words, while students in grades sixth through eighth were required to write 6001,000 words. Applications and information were mailed to the schools in September 2011 in Miami and Shelby counties for awards and scholarships. Students can see their school guidance counselor, history teacher or principal for application forms and guidelines in the fall, or contact the chapter. Dee Smith served as chair of the American History contest. Awards were presented by Thompson. The following received certificates for their essays. Sidney Christian Academy — Emmanuel Ball, Hunter Cahill, Jonathan Hancock, Katelyn Lyons, Jerrod Peterson, Ciara Shadoan, Lilly Toal, Ethan Young, and present at the tea was Evan Miller, who won a bronze medal.

Your family needs to look into getting some outside help Dear Annie: My 20-year-old nephew has been a troubled youth, despite all the attempts of his family to help him, including counseling and rehab. When he was 18, he became involved with a messed-up 14year-old girl who used drugs, alcohol and sex to get her way. A year ago, my nephew's family moved out of state, but last fall he reconnected with the old girlfriend via Facebook. The girl's father bought my nephew a plane ticket to come visit. She is now a spoiled 17year-old dropout who refuses to get a job. Worse yet, while visiting, my nephew also reconnected with all their former drug-using "friends." My nephew is now back with his family, but the girl constantly texts and calls. It seems she is planning to run away and join him. His family is furious. They hadn't known about the plane ticket and never wanted him involved with this girl. They are trying to get him back into rehab, but he refuses to do anything to help himself. Any ideas how we can help him? — Florida Dear Florida: It is terribly sad when a child is so selfdestructive that you can only sit and watch. But your nephew is a legal adult, and there isn't much the family can do to change his behavior. Please urge them to contact Families Anonymous ( and Because I Love You ( for help, suggestions and emotional support. Dear Annie: Several years ago, you printed an essay about a dog who had lived a long life and had become old and sickly and wanted his master to do him a favor and let him die. It was written from the dog's viewpoint, and I think of it often. Would it be possible to rerun it? — Rockford, Ill. Dear Rockford: Thank you for asking. We last printed this in 2007, and several readers have requested it since then. Here it is: A Dog's Plea by Beth Norman Harris Treat me kindly, my beloved friend, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me. Do not break my spirit with a stick, for though I might lick your hand between blows, your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the things you would have me learn. Speak to me often, for your voice is the world's sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when the sound of your footstep falls upon my waiting ear. Please take me inside when it is cold and wet, for I am a domesticated animal, no longer accustomed to bitter elements. I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth. Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst. Feed me clean food that I might stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life, should your life be in danger. And, my friend, when I am very old, and I no longer enjoy good health, hearing and sight, do not make heroic efforts to keep me going. I am not having any fun. Please see that my trusting life is taken gently. I shall leave this Earth knowing with the last breath I draw that my fate was always safest in your hands.

Here are some hints to keep in mind when using your dishwasher: • An efficient dishwasher, properly used, consumes less hot water and less energy than handwashing. • Never use dishwashing liquid. • If replacing your dishwasher, save the silverware basket, because it might come in handy

Hints from Heloise Columnist for holding silverware for a picnic or a party. • Choose the “air dry” setting to save money and energy. • If buying a new dishwasher, look for one that has a heat booster so that the water is very hot and gets dishes clean in no time. • Look for one that disposes of

food so that dishes don’t have to be “washed” before stacking. (It’s always best to quickly scrape away the large “chunks” so that the dishes get clean.) — Heloise PET PAL Dear Readers: Jonie in Sandy, Utah, sent in a picture of her cute black cat, Cranfield, playing peekaboo. He was lying on the bed, pulling the sheet over his head! Jonie says he’s the sweetest kitty in the whole world. To see Cranfield and our other Pet Pals, visit and click on “Pets.” — Heloise HELPFUL FILTER Dear Heloise: While browning

meat, I ran out of paper towels used for fat draining. In a pinch, I used a couple of coffee filters to do the job. Turns out, they worked better than the paper towels! They left no lint, and since they are designed to hold up to brewing, they didn’t shred. The extra bonus? They are much cheaper than paper towels! Love your column! — Melissa in Omaha, Neb. Melissa, paper coffee filters can be cheap at dollar stores and can be useful for many things around the house! Thanks for writing. — Heloise

HOROSCOPE Saturday, Feb. 18, 2012 Because your abilities and ambitions will be harmoniously fusing in the year ahead, the trends look exceptionally promising for you. Recognize your opportunities and be sure to take advantage of everything that you can. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Something big that has primarily been in the hands of another might come under your control, if you want it. Take hold and make sure the reins remain firmly in place. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You?re now entering a cycle in which benefits from things initiated by others will make their way to you as well. Be prepared to jump on bandwagons and get strumming. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — An old pal from the past could re-enter your life, although it is likely to be just for the time being. You won?t have any trouble picking up where you left off. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Dismiss all thoughts of being second-best and set your sights a notch or two higher than usual. You have what it takes to get what you want, once you know what that is. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — One of your best assets is your ability to get along with just about anybody. That list includes bigwigs, small fry and all those in between. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Someone with whom you?ve had successful dealings in the past might present a toothsome proposition to you. Because of past experiences, you won?t treat it lightly. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Before putting your plans in action, seek out someone with experience who might be a good adviser or sounding board. This person could have some suggestions to make your scheme even better. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Any constructive ideas you get to better your position at work shouldn?t be ignored. Find a way to test things out if you?re unsure of them. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — If a friend is eager to introduce you to someone he or she just met, avail yourself of the opportunity. Something interesting and exciting could come out of it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — When it becomes your job to turn around some unproductive methods, don?t hold back on your ideas for doing so. You?ll find ways to produce new beginnings. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Lock in on a positive attitude and your aspirations and hopes can be realized. Think in terms of being fortunate and Dame Fortune will step in and guide you along. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Keep an eye peeled for a favorable shift in conditions to take place that would benefit you both financially and career-wise. You need to recognize a shifting tide when you see it. COPYRIGHT 2012 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Saturday, Feb. 18, the 49th day of 2012. There are 317 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight: On Feb. 18, 1861, Jefferson Davis was sworn in as provisional president of the Confederate States of America in Montgomery, Ala. On this date: In 1885, Mark Twain’s “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” was published in the U.S. for the first time.

In 1984, Italy and the Vatican signed an accord under which Roman Catholicism ceased to be the state religion of Italy. In 2001, auto racing star Dale Earnhardt Sr. died in a crash at the Daytona 500 he was 49. Today’s Birthdays: Actor George Kennedy is 87. Singer Yoko Ono is 79. Actress Sinead Cusack is 64. Actor John Travolta is 58. Actress Molly Ringwald is 44.

In 1930, photographic evidence of Pluto (now designated a “dwarf planet”) was discovered by Clyde W. Tombaugh at Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Ariz. In 1970, the “Chicago Seven” defendants were found not guilty of conspiring to incite riots at the 1968 Democratic national convention. Five were convicted of violating the Anti-Riot Act of 1968 (those convictions were later reversed).

John Glenn fever grips again, after 50 years CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — John Glenn fever has taken hold in the U.S. once again. Three days before the 50th anniversary of his historic flight, the first American to orbit the Earth addressed employees at Kennedy Space Center. The NASA auditorium was packed Friday with hundreds of workers hoping to see the space legend. The 90-year-old Glenn was joined at both events by Scott Carpenter, 86, the only other survivor of the original Mercury 7 astronauts, as the weekend of anniversary festivities began. Glenn said he recollects the flight so often it seems like it took place just a couple weeks ago. He and Carpenter visited their old launch pad, Complex 14. It was from the blockhouse there that Carpenter called out “Godspeed John Glenn,” a phrase that has become one of the most memorable quotes from spaceflight. The national attention then was “almost unbelievable,” Glenn said, adding that he and his colleagues learned to live with the acclaim “or tried to anyway.” The early 1960s were a magical


Former Sen. John Glenn, left, and Scott Carpenter, right, speak at the Kennedy Space Center, Friday, in Cape Canaveral, Fla. John Glenn fever has taken hold in the U.S. once again. Three days before the 50th anniversary of his historic flight, the first American to orbit the Earth addressed employees at Kennedy Space Center. time in Cape Canaveral and adjoining Cocoa Beach, Carpenter said. “Everyone was behind us. The whole nation was behind what we were doing,” he said. Glenn’s Friendship 7 capsule circled Earth three times on Feb.

20, 1962. Carpenter followed aboard Aurora 7 on May 24, 1962. They were the third and fourth Americans to rocket into space. Alan Shepard and Gus Grissom flew short suborbital missions in 1961, the same year the Soviet

Union launched two cosmonauts into orbit on separate shots. The Cold War was raging, and America was desperate to even the score. Glenn could have died trying if the heat shield on his capsule was loose as flight controllers feared. But the protective shield was tight, and Glenn splashed down safely. Glenn, a U.S. senator for Ohio for 24 years, returned to orbit aboard shuttle Discovery in 1998, becoming the world’s oldest spaceman at age 77 and cementing his super-galactic status. “Flying in space at age 77, you’ve given me hope. I’ve got a few good years left, and I’m ready,” Kennedy Space Center director Robert Cabana, a former shuttle commander, told Glenn. Another retired shuttle commander, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden Jr., shared how the Mercury astronauts “really lit up the world for me in terms of probability or possibility of things that we could do.” Glenn recalled how the Mercury astronauts traveled during their training to Cape Canaveral to watch a missile blast off. It was a night launch, and the

rocket blew apart over their heads. “That wasn’t a very good confidence-builder for our first trip to the cape,” Glenn said. Improvements were made, and Glenn said he gained confidence in his Mercury-Atlas rocket, a converted nuclear missile. Otherwise, he said he would not have climbed aboard. Glenn and his wife, Annie, who turned 92 on Friday, were on hand Thursday evening for the attempted liftoff of the newest of the Atlas rockets, an unmanned booster that NASA contractors hope one day will carry astronauts. Windy weather forced a scrub of the Navy satellite launch. “Scrub! Welcome to the space program,” Glenn said at the news conference held in the old Mercury Mission Control, now located at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. “Not anything brand new to me.” It took 11 tries for Glenn to get off the pad in 1962. He boarded three times before finally taking off, which he believes created even more of a public frenzy over his flight.

Federal agent opened fire during job discussion named Ezequiel Garcia. At some point, the discussion escalated, and Garcia pulled out his weapon and fired. Kozak was hit six times, in the upper torso, legs and hands. He was hospitalized Friday in stable condition but was alert. “He is a fighter, and I believe that’s why he’s alive today,” said Claude Arnold, the ICE agent in charge in Los Angeles. “He refused to succumb to his injuries, and in law enforcement that’s what makes the difference between people who go home at the end of the day and those who don’t.” After Garcia fired, a nearby agent drew his own gun and fatally shot the attacker. The third agent, whose name was being withheld, was placed on administrative leave. Arnold said he wasn’t aware of any issues between

Garcia and Kozak. “We are doing everything humanly possible to understand why it happened and to ensure it will not happen again,” he said. A federal official with knowledge of the investigation told The Associated Press that Kozak had denied a request for an internal transfer request by Garcia. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not author-

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — It had all the ingredients of workplace violence: a manager, an angry employee, a discussion about job performance and at least one gun. But in this case, both people were federal agents. And when gunfire erupted in a government office building, a third agent drew his handgun and took out the shooter, helping save the manager’s life. Investigators on Friday were still piecing together the details of Thursday’s chaotic scene at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Long Beach. The confrontation apparently began during a discussion involving Kevin Kozak, the agency’s second-incommand for the Los Angeles area, and a lowerranking supervisor agent

On a new roll Eagles win MBC outright, blow out Lions 92-38 BY COLIN FOSTER Sports Writer Troy Christian’s 19-game Metro Buckeye Conference winning streak came to an end on Feb. 7 in a 68-61 loss to Middletown Madison. But with every ending comes a new beginning.

TROY Since then, the Eagles have started a new streak in the MBC, winning back-to-back games in dominating fashion — and on Friday night, Troy Christian made it three MBC wins in a row, manhandling Emmanuel Christian 92-38 to wrap up its second conference title in the last two years while breaking the school record for most points scored in a game. “I’m very happy for the kids. They have put in a lot of hard work and time,” Troy Christian coach Ray Zawadzki said. “Nobody believed we could be in a position to win (league) this year. I think they had us projected to finish third or fourth in the MBC at the start of the season.

Troy senior Quentin Vaughan hits a jumper over a Piqua defender during the Trojans’ 61-38 Senior Night victory Friday night at the Trojan Activities Center.

Chance to shine Troy backups start, give spark in win over Piqua BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor For five of Troy’s seniors, the first time was the charm. Devon Alexander, Nick Wagner, Dre Hudson, Quentin Vaughan and Zack Miller — who had gone four seasons reliably coming off the bench for the Trojans — got their chance to shine on Senior Night. And they took it. Troy began the game on a 9-2 run against rival Piqua Friday night at the Trojan Activities Center, and when the regular starters finally entered the game with TROY 3:25 left in the first quarter they picked up where the other left off, building a 22-5 lead by the end of the quarter and cruising to a 61-38 victory to finish undefeated in the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division. “That was awesome to see,” Troy coach Tim Miller said of Friday’s starters’ performance. “That was a great spark they gave us. They ran good offense, they ‘D’ed their butts off and they ended up going on a 9-2 run.” Hudson began the game win a score in the paint, then Vaughan hit Miller underneath to make it 4-0. After a Piqua basket, Alexander set up Wagner for a 3, then Hudson fed Vaughan for

the game as the Vikings outscored the Panthers 2-0 in the extra period to come away with the win. “We basically trailed the entire game,” Miami East coach Allen Mack said. “We took a brief 38-37 lead after Gunner hit a shot to end the third, but that was short-lived. We actually were down by as many as seven in the fourth. But our guys kept battling.”

CENTERVILLE — Four Trojans cruised through the first two rounds Friday night. Seven others will have to have a big day today. Still, all 11 Troy wrestlers are still alive after the first day of wrestling at the Division I Sectional tournament at Centerville High School, with Logan Schlosser (145), Kevin McGraw (182), Andrew Kostecka (220) and Ryne Rich (285) all still in the running for championships — and with quicker, more direct routes to next week’s district tournament. Schlosser and McGraw both went 2-0 on the day, while

Kostecka and Rich won once after first-round byes. Schlosser won a 16-2 major decision over Piqua’s Tyler Duhl in the first round before advancing with a pin over Edgewood’s Tyler Perry. McGraw started with a pin over West Carrollton’s Feras Kahlil and then won a 106 decision over Fairmont’s Drew Plumlee. Kostecka won a 5-0 decision in his only match of the night, while Rich pinned Fairmont’s Andrew Routson in his only action. Mason Perkins (126) and Eric

Troy girls rebound, advance to district meet Staff Reports


The Troy girls bowling team started slow at Friday’s sectional tournament at Woodman Lanes but came on strong to climb the standings and finish third in the 22-team field. Troy advances to next week’s District Tournament along with Beavercreek, Fairmont, Wayne, Stebbins, and Xenia as the top 6 teams moved on. Troy opened with a subpar 833 team game that put the Trojans in eighth place, then improved to 886 in the second game to move up to

seventh. Then the Trojans started heating up. The girls elevated to 984 in the final team game to jump above the cutline and move around three more teams to fourth place. More importantly, Troy opened a comfortable 143 pin cushion between themselves and the cutline heading into baker play. The Trojans rode the wave of momentum throughout baker play – passing Wayne for the third spot – and finishing 331 pins above the cut. Troy rattled off games of 203-173-183-

173-216-210 to average 193 for the six baker games. Allie Isner had the hot hand for the Trojans, rolling games of 191-217-211 for a 619 series. Elizabeth Reed started slow with a 144 game, but rebounded with a 201 and 219 to finish at 564. Samantha Wilkerson also got stronger as the day went on, shooting games of 159161-217 for a 537. Stephanie Metzger finished at 529 with games of 175-156-198. Courtney Metzger added games of 164-151, then split time with Jackie Brown in a 139 game. The district tournament

will be held at Eastern Lanes in Middletown. The boys team is scheduled to bowl on Friday, while the girls take the lanes on Saturday. • Tipp Places 7th The Tippecanoe girls placed seventh in the sectional. Scoring for the Red Devils were Caitlin Wolff (148-183-195—526), Chelsea Brown (174-179160—513), Demi York (183180-150—513), Rebecca Milas (171-162-153—486) and Jordan Amspaugh (149135-152—436). In the first game, the Red

Devils totaled a score of 825 to sit in ninth place heading into the second frame. In Game 2, Tipp improved, shooting an 839, then in the third game, the Red Devils shot an 810 for a total of 2,474 to reside in eighth place going into the baker games. In six baker rounds, Tippecanoe’s score totaled 1,056 — giving it a grand total of 3,530 — which was good enough for seventh overall. “The girls really battled today, and I’m proud of them for how the tournament ended,” Tippecanoe coach Clay Lavercombe said. “We

kind of had a rough go of it in the regular games. We just couldn’t seem to get really dialed in. We had a couple of good individual games, but couldn’t string it all together. “I’m really proud of the girls for their performance today and their effort. They never gave up, and that is so important in a marathon like the sectional tournament. The girls had a great season, and have nothing to hang their heads about. Thanks to the seniors — Rebecca, Jordan, Chelsea, Demi, and Courtney — for all the good times.”

Busch working on reputation fun back into racing, eh? Busch took a calm approach to Friday’s accident, which began when defending NASCAR champion Tony Stewart turned him as he pushed Busch’s car at Daytona International Speedway. It wrecked a really good race car Busch had the fastest 10-lap average over the practice session and guaran-

more, but he sure looked comfortable. The Heat ended their six-city trip with a devastating performance at both ends over the Cavs, who had played them tough in two previous losses this season. Miami led 11-0, 21-2, 29-8 and 35-14 in the first quarter. The Cavaliers never had a chance. Playing their best ball of the season, the Heat also won three games in three nights during the trip, becoming the first team since the 1979-80 Phoenix Suns to accomplish that three-peat. And with Tuesday’s 15-point win at Indiana, the Heat also became the first team since Milwaukee in 1970 to win three consecutive road games by 10 points or more. The Bucks won the NBA title that year. The Heat could be on their way to one of their own. James had spent the past two days staying at his mansion in nearby Bath, Ohio, a perk he enjoyed and a stay that made him a little nostalgic.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — It didn’t take long one practice session, in fact to see how different life is this season for Kurt Busch. His new car was wrecked in the first practice session of the season Friday, and the backup Phoenix Racing had on hand at Daytona International Speedway was missing its seat. Not exactly putting the

CLEVELAND (AP) — LeBron James scored 28 in his third game back to Cleveland as a visitor, Dwyane Wade added 22 and the Miami Heat won their fifth straight all on the road by destroying the Cavaliers 111-87 on Friday night. James, booed loudly every time he touched the ball by fans who haven’t forgiven him for leaving two years ago, scored 16 in the third quarter when the Heat opened a 34point lead. James added four dunks, three 3-pointers, five rebounds, five assists and rested the entire fourth quarter. Miami has won eight of nine, and went 5-1 on its trip, winning by an average of 18.8 points. The Heat showed no mercy on the Cavs, who got 17 points from rookie Kyrie Irving and 15 from Ramon Sessions. After the final horn, James shook hands with fans sitting near Miami’s bench, tossed his headband into the stands and skipped off the floor, slapping outstretched hands with every step. He wasn’t home any-

teed a long day of work for Phoenix Racing to get him ready for Saturday night’s exhibition Budweiser Shootout. “Just all the hard work, and the limited cars we have, we don’t need to have wrecked cars,” said Busch, who after thanking sponsor Tag Heuer, smiled. “We’ll be all right.” Busch is working hard

this season to repair his reputation and learn to enjoy life a little more. He struggled with that the last few years at Penske Racing, where his intense focus and constant desire to win often blinded him from the big picture. An ill-handling race car often sent him into an obscenity-laced rant, and incidents with rival Jimmie Johnson left him seeing red.

Bengals hire Jackson as assistant coach CINCINNATI (AP) — Former Oakland Raiders coach Hue Jackson has been hired as an assistant with the Cincinnati Bengals. On the staff with Cincinnati from 2004-06, Jackson will help with the secondary and special teams, and work closely with the position coaches for both slots, Mark Carrier and Darrin Simmons, respectively. A native of Los Angeles, Jackson played quarterback at the University of the Pacific and began his coaching career there in 1987. He coached in the NCAA through 2000, when he

was offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Southern California. He entered the NFL with the Washington Redskins in 2001. Jackson was fired after the Raiders missed the AFC playoffs with an 8-8 record last season. “I relied on Hue greatly when he was with us, and his success overall in the NFL, including being selected for a head coaching position, is well documented,” Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. “He has expertise in all aspects of the game, and we are fortunate to have obtained his services.”

Mickelson leads at Riviera LOS ANGELES (AP) — Phil Mickelson wasn’t at his best Friday at Riviera. Two shots at least helped him stay in the lead. Despite having only two birdie chances inside 15 feet, Mickelson holed out from the eighth fairway for eagle and chipped in for birdie on the par-3 16th. That carried him to a 1under 70 and a two-shot lead in the Northern Trust Open. Mickelson made three par saves from outside 10 feet, starting with his opening hole at the par-4 AP PHOTO 10th. He went from the Phil Mickelson chips from the gallery to the 12th front bunker to the back green during the second round of the Northern bunker, blasted out safely Trust Open golf tournament Friday at Riviera to 18 feet and curled in the Country Club in Los Angeles. par putt.

That set the tone for a day that only looked good on the scorecard. “I probably didn’t play the greatest today, but I was able to kind of salvage a good round and had a good break on eight where I holed out from the fairway,” he said. “That was a nice little bonus.” He was at 6-under 136 among those who finished early at Riviera in mild temperatures and not nearly as much wind as the opening round. That didn’t affect the scoring. There was just enough rain earlier in the week that with foot traffic on the greens, those short putts are no longer as easy to make. Jimmy Walker had a 66

and was tied for second at 138 along with Carl Pettersson (70) and Matt Kuchar (69), who had a solid day without too much excitement until he drilled his tee shot to a back left pin on No. 6 and left himself 5 feet for birdie. Before he could putt, he was stung by a bee in his arm. “I haven’t been stung by a bee in probably 20 years,” Kuchar said. “I had stopped being scared of bees. The thing got me, and it was really painful. It was not much fun.” Kuchar said his elbow felt as though it were on fire. If that wasn’t enough, there was the advice from the medical staff.

“They said if you have trouble breathing, stop and we’ll try to help you from there,” he said. “But thankfully, everything continued to go pretty normally.” The 10th hole was entertaining as ever. Even with the hole location toward the back right of the green, players tried to drive the green. Rocco Mediate thought his shot was perfect, but it hopped into the front bunker and left him little hope. His next shot flew out of the sand, over the green and banged off a television tower, back into another bunker. He saved par. “This is the coolest hole,” Mediate said. “My favorite place.”

■ Boys Basketball

Eagles The senior finished with a game-high 21 points. “I wouldn’t have done it without my teammates,” Grant said. “It’s great to have guys that can drive to the hole and help create open looks, so a lot of the credit goes to them. I felt confident, my shot felt good. I just let the game come to me.” “Offensively, our senior said ‘jump on my back, it’s my night, I’m going to lead ya’ — he put up 21 in the first half, 18 just in the first quarter,” Zawadzki said. “He was very special. He let the game come to him, and he took advantage of every opportunity he got.” Six different Eagles scored in the second, with Zawadzki (seven points)

the school record for most 3-pointers in a game (10). When all was said-anddone, the Eagles ‘D’ forced 25 Lions turnovers and allowed only nine field goals in the game. Zawadzki scored 15, Thomas canned three 3s and chipped in 13 and Christian Salazar added 12 for the Eagles. Troy Christian (15-5), the No. 4 seed in the sectional, begins tournament play on Feb. 24 against Cedarville. The game is slated to start at 6:30 p.m. and will take place at Troy High School. “Our school has really never experienced tournament fever,” Zawadzki said. “I’m trying to create that here. With the group we

have — a group that won 15 games this year — I think we have a shot at making a run.” EC — 38 Noah Bragg 1-0-2, Taviyon Eubanks 1-0-3, Kyle Gosney 3-1-8, Jared Klawer 1-4-6, Evan Livingston 1-0-2, Rice 1-0-3, Kevin Stewart 1-5-7, Darius Stroder 0-7-7.

Troy senior Jordan Price passes the ball to a teammate Friday against Piqua on Senior Night. ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 a short jumper — and Troy never looked back. “It’s a tough situation sometimes — you’ve got Senior Night and have a group that’s not used to starting. Do you take a chance at maybe digging yourself an early hole?” Miller said. “But these kids have busted their butts all year long and supported our other guys. They deserved their time on the floor — and they took advantage of it.” With 3:25 to go in the first, Seth Lucas, Cody May, Kelley Kirtz and Jordan Price — all seniors themselves — and junior Tyler Miller entered the game and went on a 13-3 run of their own. After a sluggish second quarter that saw Troy lead 27-12 at the half, the Trojans built a 45-19 lead after three and coasted from there. Miller finished with a game-high 17 points, May had a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds, Price added six points and

With the win, Troy finished the regular season at 14-6 — 10-0 in the GWOC North. The Trojans clinched the division title outright last week with a win over Sidney. “There was a lot riding on this one tonight,” Miller said. “We wanted to finish 10-0 in the GWOC North, we wanted to be undefeated in Miami County this year and we wanted to win on Senior Night. Those three things were what we were hanging our hats on. No one wants to go out on their Senior Night with a blemish.” Taylor Wellbaum — who scored all five of Piqua’s first-quarter points, led the Indians (416, 3-7) with 11 points. In the end, the Indians had as many total field goals in the game — nine — as Troy did during its firstquarter explosion. Now Troy, the No. 5 seed in the Division I Sectional tournament, has a week to prepare for its first-round game against No. 12 Butler Feb. 25 at Trotwood. “We feel good about it, but we honestly haven’t thought about it at all,”

Troy’s Tyler Miller scores two of his game-high 17 points Friday against Piqua. Miller said. “We feel good about how we match up against them, and I’m sure they feel the same way. It’ll be a good game.”

p.m. in Tipp City. Bradford (3-17) plays the winner of the Jackson CenterMississinawa Valley game on Feb. 29 at 6:30 at Garby Gymnasium in Piqua. Stebbins 69, Tippecanoe 60 RIVERSIDE — After falling behind 18-8 at the end of the first, Tippecanoe could never make up the difference in a 69-60 to Stebbins on Friday night. Nick Fischer canned six 3s and paced the Red Devils with a game-high 24 points. Brandon Ervin added 16 in the losing effort. The Red Devils open tournament play against Ben Logan on Feb. 25 at 3 p.m. in Springfield. Arcanum 48, Covington 43 COVINGTON — Arcanum held off Covington for a 48-43 victory on Friday. The Buccs (10-10) were led by Dylan Owens, who had 18 points. Ryan Craft added 12 in the loss. The Buccs play Bethel in the first round of the tournament on Friday. Houston 38, Newton 27 PLEASANT HILL — Newton (9-11) missed its chance to complete a .500 regular season Friday night, struggling from the field in the first and fourth quarter in a 38-27 loss to Houston. Jordan Hodges scored 12 points to lead the Indians, who only connected on one field goal in the first and last eight minutes combined. Newton faces No. 3 Springfield Catholic Central to open sectional play Feb. 25 at Troy.


■ CONTINUED FROM 15 A Garrett Mitchell steal gave East the ball with little time remaining in the game. From there, Coomes drove in and missed a jumped, but collected his own rebound and scored to give East the win. It was Coomes’ second game-winner of the season. He also added 12 rebounds and three assists. “Those two had 50 out of our 59 points,” Mack said. “That’s unusual for us. We are typically pretty balanced. Those two stepped up and carried us. “This is our second year in a row that we have went undefeated in the conference. It’s special, not only for our seniors, but for all the guys that came in and made contributions.” The Vikings (17-2) plays Milton-Union at home today for a chance at completing a Viking varsity sweep in the inaugural season at the new gymnasium. “We started the night with the goal of finishing the season undefeated in the conference. And now, we will try to complete an undefeated regular season at home.” Bethel 58, Bradford 34 BRANDT — The Bethel Bees jumped all over Bradford on Friday, getting out to a 16-4 first quarter lead and coasting to a 58-34 victory. Joe Zimmerman led the Bees with 17, Gus Schwieterman had 16 and Kyle Hamlin added 11. For Bradford, Alan Yount was the high man with 12 points. The Bees (14-5) open tournament play against Covington on Friday at 8

and Salazar (six) leading the charge. After causing eight turnovers in the first, Troy Christian’s defense continued to get after it, matching its first-quarter total by forcing eight more Lions turnovers in the second to build a 52-12 halftime lead. “We want to create turnovers because it limits the number of opportunities on our opponent’s end,” Zawadzki said. “Our offense is geared on our pressure defense. Our guards are very quick and talented — and it showed.” Then in the third, the Eagles stayed hot from the arc, hitting three 3s in the first three minutes of the quarter — ending the quarter with four triples to tie


nected on an open trey off a pass from Grant Zawadzki to put the Eagles up 11-1 as Emmanuel Christian’s Darius Stroder split a pair at the line to finally get the Lions on the scoreboard with 3:47 remaining in the quarter. Later in the quarter, Grant hit his third 3-pointer of the game, then found a wide-open Spencer Thomas, who buried another Eagle 3 — the team’s fifth of the opening quarter. And just before the buzzer sounded — with a ‘J-Grant’ chant erupting in the student section — Grant drove in and lofted home a floater to make the Troy Christian lead 28-3 at the end of one … leaving the senior with 18 in the quarter.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 But our kids took that as a challenge, they accepted it. They were not going to settle for mediocrity. “The thing that I really enjoy about this group is that they make everyone around them better. That’s what has propelled them to a 15-win season. It’s been fun to watch.” In the final home game of the season for the Eagles, their lone senior — Jacob Grant — couldn’t have played better. Grant appeared to be shooting at a hula hoop early on, converting on six out of eight Troy Christian points to open play, helping the Eagles jump out to an 8-0 lead to open the first. Shortly after, Grant con-
