Troy father indicted on rape charges BY WILL E SANDERS Ohio Community Media wsanders@dailycall.com

TROY

An adoptive Troy father who allegedly raped three children in his care and also compelled child prostitution through online advertisements involving the children has been indicted by a Miami County grand jury on dozens of child rape charges, said Miami County Prosecutor Gary Nasal. The grand jury returned an

indictment against Kenneth H. Brandt, 39, of Troy, on Monday after hearing disturbing testimony that resulted with 31 rape charges being filed against him. Eleven of those rape charges involve a victim under the age of 10 and are punishable with 15 years to life in prison. The remaining 20 rape counts are punishable by up to 11 years in prison, Nasal

said. In addition, the same grand jury returned an indictment against Jason M. Zwick, 29, o f Beavercreek, who authorities allege BRANDT responded to Brandt’s online advertisements.

He has been charged with three counts of rape. All three of Zwick’s rape charges are punishable by up to 11 years in prison. The grand jury returned the indictments against both men on Monday and both Brandt and Zwick were served their indictments Thursday, Nasal said. Brandt remains behind bars at the Miami County Jail on a $800,000 bond while Zwick

Seitz to serve 5 years

If you’re a girl who wants to be “in” when it comes to the perfect dress for the prom, think feathers. If you’re a guy, think slim-cut tux. “The more feathers on the dress, the better,” said Peggy Wireman, store manager at the Bridal Emporium in Wapakoneta. “About half our dresses have a feather somewhere.” Peacock feathers, black feathers and blue feathers seem to be the most popular, but they come in a variety of colors.

For Edison Community College, Altrusa of Troy’s 18th annual Bee for Literacy — A Corporate Challenge was a family affair. Needing to spell a pair of words down the stretch to outlast the other seven teams in the corporate spelling bee, Edison team members drew on the unlikeliest of sources Thursday afternoon at the Troy Church of the Nazarene. First, Edison had to spell “notochordal.” For that, team member Kara Myers drew upon her son’s spelling list. “I knew my son had it on his spelling list — I was just trying to visualize it on his list,” Myers said. Once notochordal was spelled correctly, Edison’s Teresa Roth had to spell “edelwiess” — a small, perenni-

al herb that grows in the high Alps — to clinch the victory. For that, Edison team member Teresa Roth was able to draw upon knowledge imparted to her by her mother. “I knew that because my mother’s favorite movie is ‘The Sound of Music,’” Roth said. With the win, Edison was able to win its third Bee for Literacy title in a row. Three years ago, Edison won the title outright. Last year, the Chargers shared the crown when the timed event reached its limit. Edison nearly had to share the title again this year, but was able to spell its final two words correctly just before the time expired. For team member Scott Burnam — who, like Roth, has been a part of all three victorious teams — the key to Edison’s burgeoning spelling dynasty is battling not only through the words, but also through the

nerves. “It’s funny, but as we were driving down here, we were discussing why, as grown-ups, we got so nervous about a spelling bee that is a fundraiser,” Burnam said. “Nerves are 90 percent of it,” Myers added. This year’s charity event — all profits from the event are donated by Altrusa of Troy to benefit local literacy projects — was one of the most hotly contested in recent memory. Through three rounds, none of the eight teams — Edison, Goodrich Corporation, MainSource Bank, Miami County Educational Service Center, Teen Leadership Troy, TroyHayner Cultural Center, Troy High School Interact Club and Troy-Miami County Library — had been eliminated through the first three rounds, a rarity in the corporate challenge. Edison and Troy-Hayner Cultural Center were the final two teams remaining in the competition. The Interact Club won the coveted “team spirit” award.

“You have kind of a Jekyll and Hyde personality,” Judge James F. Stevenson told the defendant Jamie J. Seitz Thursday, before sentencing him to serve five years in prison for his conviction of second-degree felony kidnapping. Seitz, 46, 1510 W. North St., Piqua, also was sentenced to serve 180 days for his misdeSEITZ meanor assault conviction, which is to be served concurrently. In addition to the prison time, Seitz was fined $500 and ordered to pay $672.13 in restitution, as well as court costs. He will be subject to three years of community control sanctions following his release. He was given 84 days credit for time served. Stevenson said the presentence investigation had revealed a history of community service, as well as previous violence against a girlfriend in similar circumstances. He said throughout the trials, Seitz

U.S. spokesmen said the administration will press on with trying to reconcile Afghanistan’s government and Taliban forces willing to renounce terrorism, despite Thursday’s announcement by the militants that they were suspending contacts with the United States. The last substantive talks between U.S. officials and Taliban representatives was in January, and two initiatives to build trust and move toward real peace talks are in limbo. The Taliban accused the U.S. of failing to deliver on promises and making new demands in the talks, a charge that White House press secretary Jay Carney denied. Afghan President Hamid Karzai demanded

They spoke on condition of anonymity to describe sensitive diplomacy. “There is no likely resolution to the conflict in Afghanistan without a political resolution,” Carney said. “Our conditions for participation in that process by the Taliban have been clear in terms of the reconciliation. Those who would be reconciled need to lay down their arms, renounce al-Qaida (and) promise to abide by the Afghan constitution. And we continue to support that process.” A senior U.S. official familiar with the discussions said U.S. officials expected some statement

Afghan • CONTINUED FROM A1 from the Taliban backing away from talks, and presume that the timing following Sunday’s killings is an attempt to gain greater leverage over the United States. Even before the latest troubles, efforts to negotiate an Afghan settlement were stymied by the Taliban’s unwillingness to negotiate directly with Karzai’s government, which the militants see as illegitimate. Karzai has complained that he was cut out of the talks, complicating his sometimes rocky relationship with Washington. The Taliban have maintained they want to negotiate only with the United States, the largest donor and largest military force in Afghanistan. The Associated Press previously reported that the U.S. side had agreed to greater Afghan government participation in future talks. That shift appears to underlie the Taliban claim of a change in terms, although their statement was not specific. As to whether the U.S. has delivered on promises in earlier negotiations, the Taliban were apparently referring to a plan the U.S. has backed publicly to open a Taliban political office in the Gulf state of Qatar, as the Taliban had requested. That plan, although reluctantly endorsed by Karzai, apparently has been delayed by an internal Taliban debate about a public renunciation of international terrorism. The U.S. has made that renunciation a condition for opening the office. The Taliban also seek release of five prisoners held at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The AP previously has reported that

had not expressed remorse or regret for his violent actions. “Instead,” Stevenson said, “you chose to hide behind excuses. Your conduct that night was reprehensible,” adding that there was “no excuse for the beating you gave‚” the victim. Seitz spoke on his own behalf before the judge passed his sentence, telling the court that he was ‚ “very sorry.” “My actions that night were not consistent with my normal behavior,” Seitz said, adding that if he had other options available to him that night, he would have taken them. He said the incident occurred during a time when he was‚ “spiraling out of control, drinking too much and handling my marriage recklessly.” Seitz claimed selfdefense throughout the trial, alleging that his victim, Scarlet Ashworth of Tipp City, struck first on that night in December 2010. He told the court Thursday, “I may have continued on too long to protect myself.” Ashworth’s parents also spoke before senand Susan tencing, Elsass of Shelby County Victims Services, read a letter on her behalf. Debra Ashworth of Tipp City, spoke of her

daughter’s suffering during her 12-hour ordeal, as well as the lingering pain and humiliation that followed during her slow recovery and the course of two trials. Elsass read of Seitz’s lack of remorse and said he had violated a “position of trust” as Ashworth’s employer. He was a co-owner of the Broad Street Grille, where she worked as bar manager. Elsass went on to say that Ashworth exercised poor judgment in her relationship with her married boss, but “poor judgment is not a crime.” Edward Ashworth of Troy, scoffed at Seitz’s claim of not having choices on the night in question. “He chose to do this,” Edward said. “No person should have to endure this because she made bad choices,” noting repeatedly that Seitz “severely beat, strangled and tortured” Ashworth. “I could hardly recognize her from the beatings that she took,” Edward said. The victims’ statements made repeated efforts to Seitz’s lack of remorse and sizable ego. “He chose to do what he did to make people fear him,” Ashworth’s father said. “He chose to do what he did to make himself feel superior.”

the U.S. agreed in principle to transfer the prisoners to custody in Qatar, and U.S. officials have publicly acknowledged the idea is in play. Several Republicans in Congress have denounced the transfer plan, and there has been no apparent progress on it. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the United States has made no decisions to transfer Taliban detainees. She urged continued negotiations with the insurgents. “We still feel that if there is a process that can be supported, that we ought to do that,” Nuland told reporters. “We remain prepared to continue these discussions,” with a goal of getting the Taliban and the Afghan government to negotiate directly. In Afghanistan this week, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta met with Karzai and sought to repair the strained U.S.Afghan relationship. In the aftermath of the killing, Karzai wants NATO to curtail operations in the countryside and accelerate the planned transfer of security responsibilities to Afghan forces. Although Karzai previously has said he wanted international troops to transition out of rural areas, the apparent call for an immediate exit is new. Karzai also said he wants Afghan forces to take the lead for countrywide security in 2013, which may or may not be in line with a statement Wednesday from President Barack Obama and British Prime Minster David Cameron. They reiterated that the aim of the U.S. and its allies was to get out by the end of 2014, but stated for the first time that international forces would hand over the lead combat role to Afghan forces next year.

WASHINGTON (AP) — At least it’s a dry heat. The federal government’s spring weather forecast offers no respite from warmer weather, but the country should get a break from the spring flooding that’s hit the last four years. The National Weather Service’s outlook for spring, which arrived early with 577 warm temperature records broken Wednesday, predicts mostly warmer and drier-thannormal weather, except in the Northwest. The current summer-like weather — with some temperatures as much as 35 degrees above normal

— means there is less snow melting and flooding rivers. So only a small fraction of the country has an above normal risk for flooding and no areas have a high risk of flooding this spring. Only the Ohio Valley and parts of Louisiana have elevated flood risk. That’s quite a change from last year when record flooding struck major rivers, including the Mississippi. “The United States is getting a much needed spring break” from flooding, said National Weather Service Deputy Director Laura Furgione.

No place in the contiguous United States is forecast to be wetter than normal this spring. The seemingly snowless winter — the third least amount of snow in the US in 46 years

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

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Daily Sentinel, Grand Junction, Colo., on Afghanistan: The Pentagon reported March 2 that five U.S. military personnel have been found responsible for the inadvertent burning of Korans at a prison in Afghanistan last month that prompted a week of rioting and violence in that country. Five is one less than the number of U.S. troops who have been killed by supposed friendly Afghan Army troops and civilians since news of the Koran burnings broke Feb. 21. Those killings are the latest horrific evidence that our military mission in Afghanistan — and the country itself — are rapidly unraveling, and that we should not wait until 2014 to depart.

Limbaugh has since apologized — unlike his even-worse liberal counterparts — for his gratuitous insult of Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke, who testified before congressional Democrats in favor of federally mandated birth control insurance. But the apology wasn’t accepted, and Democrats now have another tool with which to divide the electorate and defeat Republicans in the fall. Democrats are winning this war of words — over birth control, over Limbaugh’s intemperance — in two ways. First, they’re making Republicans look like the Taliban. Somehow, Democrats and the left-leaning media have made this issue about women’s health and access to birth control. The truth, of course, is there is no problem with access to birth control. The only question is who should pay for it — well, that, and whether health insurance providers should be forced by the government to offer it over their own moral objections. Democrats also win in this silly debate by changing the subject from the economy, the president’s dismal record, foreign policy storm clouds on the horizon, the national debt and more. Republicans have helped them do it, too — from presidential Rick Santorum’s getting sucked into the discussion repeatedly, to Limbaugh’s disgusting rant. The latter’s flame-throwing has most people missing the point. Which, as has been pointed out, is just peachy with Democrats.

DOONESBURY FLASHBACK

Pass the salt … and the knowledge I’m a sucker for a good story and for a decent breakfast. Through Facebook, I’ve not only connected with people from my past, but with people that grew up with my parents. This has been great on several accounts. One, I get new dirt on my parents. Second, I get out of bed in time for breakfast once a week — which is rare. At least once a week, I meet up with Scott, a guy known for his great “Hollywood” smile and great stories. I usually laugh until my ribs hurt because Scott is a great story teller — most truck drivers are. Scott and his sister Sue, grew up on a farm down the road from my mother. My mom even dug up some old pictures of her and her brother out at the farm where I also grew up. “Back in those days,” there were no play dates — you simply played with the kids closest to your house. Generally, Scott and I meet up at either Loretta’s in Christiansburg, or Holly’s in Casstown, where we order eggs (no spit) and toast and sit back

Melanie Yingst Troy Daily News Columnist and share story after story until the grain reports on Channel 7. We pass the salt, we pass the time and I get great stories about my mom and her parents that I never got to know and, well, free breakfast. It’s a win-win. One of Scott’s favorite stories is of my mom’s childhood pony “Rowdy,” the meanest pony that ever lived. Rowdy lived up to his name and was more of a rodeo pony than a lazy kid’s ride. According to Scott, they’d walk the pony down to the “crick” and the bravest child would hop on and Rowdy would take off straight back to the barn. This is probably why I never

— The family of Bill Stewart Piqua

had a pony. Another one of my favorite tales that Scott tells are the ones of the times where they played in barns that are now long gone. One of my favorites is the one of the game of “Hide and Seek” that went horribly wrong. You see, all good stories from the country include scars, bank barns and blood and this one has all three. On Mom’s farm, there used to be a bank barn which, of course, burned long before my time. As the story goes, Scott and my uncle hid from Mom and Sue in the top of the bank barn, but could see them from the windows in the loft. Well, Uncle Dale and Scott got the grand idea to stand on a bucket and toss things “just to scare them” at the two unsuspecting girls as they search and searched for the hidden boys. They threw buckets, they threw cans and then, Scott got the grand idea to throw random planks of wood out the window. Only one of the pieces came back out of the window, catching

Scott in the back of the head. “Oh my, there was blood everywhere!” Scott said. “My head was just gushing blood and your grandmother Grace was freaking out, the girls were freaking out — it was great.” Scott still has the scar on the back of his head where the board cut all the way to the skull. That must have been one dandy game of Hide and Seek. After our lunches, I usually call my mom to share the stories Scott shared to hear her side of the story and of course, check his accuracy which has been spot on to this day. “Oh yeah, I remember that,” Mom will say. “There was blood every where. My mom freaked out … I forgot all about that.” To this day, Scott still has the scar from the game of Hide and Seek that went horribly wrong — and now, I have the story to pass down. So share your stories and pass the salt with someone this spring! Have a great week folks! — “Twin” Melanie Yingst appears on Fridays in the Troy Daily News. She likes her eggs over easy.

LOCAL, NATION & WORLD

Skydiver makes test jump for highest jump record (AP) — Skydiving daredevil Felix Baumgartner is more than halfway toward his goal of setting a world record for the highest jump. Baumgartner lifted off Thursday for a test jump from Roswell, N.M., aboard a 100-foot helium balloon. He rode inside a pressurized capsule to 71,581 feet — 13.6 miles — and then jumped. He parachuted to a safe landing, according to project spokeswoman Trish Medalen. He’s aiming for nearly 23 miles this summer. The record is 19.5 miles. “The view is amazing, way better than I thought,” Baumgartner said after the practice jump, in remarks provided by his representatives. Thursday’s rehearsal was a test of his capsule, full-pressure suit, parachutes and other systems. A mini Mission Control — fashioned after NASA’s — monitored his flight. Baumgartner reached speeds of up to 364.4 mph Thursday and was in free fall for three minutes and 43 seconds, before pulling his parachute cords, Medalen said. The entire jump lasted eight minutes and eight seconds. She stressed that the numbers are still unofficial. With Thursday’s successful test, Baumgartner is believed to be only the third person ever to jump from such a high altitude and free fall to a safe landing, and the first in a half-century. “I’m now a member of a pretty small club,” he said. When the 42-year-old Austrian known as “Fearless Felix” leaps from 120,000 feet in a few months, he expects to break the sound barrier as he falls through the stratosphere at supersonic speed. There’s virtually no atmosphere that far up, making it extremely hostile to humans, thus the need for a pressure suit and oxygen supply. The record for the highest free fall is held by Joe Kittinger, a retired Air Force officer from Florida. He jumped from 102,800 feet — 19.5 miles — in 1960. Baumgartner is out to beat that record. He plans one more dry run — jumping from 90,000 feet — before attempting the full 120,000 feet. The launch window opens in July and extends until the beginning of October. For comparison, commercial jets generally cruise at over 30,000 feet. Baumgartner has jumped 2,500

Money woes showing up for Romney SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO (AP) — The long and increasingly messy Republican presidential contest is starting to hit Mitt Romney where it hurts most: his wallet. New signs of financial stress are emerging in Romney’s campaign, which has built a wide lead in delegates thanks in part to the might of his bank account and multistate operation. As rival Rick Santorum’s surprising strength keeps extending the nomination battle, Romney has scaled back expenses, trimmed field staff in some cases and ROMNEY begun to count more on free media coverage to reach voters. And he’s still relying on an allied super political action committee to supplement his spending on expensive TV ads. This week, the former Massachusetts governor was forced to spend two days privately courting donors in the New York area, even as his Republican rivals were wooing voters ahead of pivotal elections in

places like Illinois, where he hasn’t been in four months, and as President Barack Obama was stockpiling cash for the fall general election fight. On Wednesday, Romney had five finance events in New York, all packed, raising about $3 million, with more set for Thursday. So the news is hardly all bad. Wednesday “was the best day we’ve had so far,” said New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, who accompanied Romney to multiple events, including a donor breakfast in New York City. But it’s less encouraging for the campaign that the money is badly needed to re-fill coffers that had sunk close to their lowest levels since Romney launched his presidential effort last year. It’s unclear if he will tap his own personal wealth. The former financial executive, whose personal wealth is estimated between $190 million and $250 mil-

lion, loaned his 2008 presidential campaign $42 million. Top aide Eric Fehrnstrom says Romney has not loaned his campaign any new funds this cycle and has “no plans” to do so. Raising money to get through a protracted primary fight is clearly not how Romney wanted to be spending his spring. He had hoped to have wrapped up the nomination by now, giving him the freedom to raise money for the general election against Obama. The incumbent Democrat doesn’t have a primary challenge, and already is well into running for re-election. He’s spending 14 hours Friday raising money; the biggest event is to be with actor/director Tyler Perry and musician Cee Lo Green in Atlanta. As Romney reloads for his GOP fight, his chief Republican rival, Santorum, is showcasing new fundraising success. The once-lopsided money race between the top two Republican candidates has never been closer. For the month of February, Romney boasted his second-best fundraising month ever, taking in $11.5 million.

PALATINE, Ill. (AP) — It’s hard to say goodbye in presidential politics. Newt Gingrich’s campaign pinned his future on two Deep South victories, which never materialized. Yet the former House speaker is pressing on despite a path to victory that seems more improbable by the day. The 2012 GOP race has seen such stand-tough moments before. Tim Pawlenty, Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Jon Huntsman and Rick Perry all promised to soldier on when things looked bleak. Eventually they bowed out — some meekly — after realizing they couldn’t overcome increasingly long odds. The decision to make a run at America’s highest office is difficult, given a presidential campaign’s grueling hours, grinding travel, constant exposure and lost privacy. Getting out

Reigning ‘world’s ugliest dog’ dies HANFORD, Calif. (AP) When a beloved pet dies, good manners usually dictate saying something nice about the departed companion. And for Yoda, it was a compliment to say she sure was ugly. Yoda won the 2011 World’s Ugliest Dog contest at the Sonoma Marin Fair for her short tufts of hair, protruding tongue, and long, seemingly hairless legs. The Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix died in her sleep Saturday. She was 15. The 1.8-pound pooch had lived a rough life before Terry Schumacher found her abandoned behind an apartment building and mistook her for a rat.

The dog went on to bag $1,000 and a trophy 15 times her size when she won the contest held in Petaluma, Calif., last June. Yoda and Schumacher became famous, appearing on national television. Contest producer Vicki DeArmon said Yoda will keep the title until a new ugliest dog is crowned in June. Schumacher, of Hanford, Calif., told the Hanford Sentinel that she will miss “her funny little ways.” But Schumacher said she was “comforted knowing she will be joining my Mom and Dad, who loved her so much. Her memories will live on forever.”

21 JUMP STREET: The TV show that made Johnny Depp a star is little more than a jumpingoff point for this rowdy, raunchy big-screen update that aims for laughs over action and delivers them intermittently. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are surprisingly amusing together as newbie cops sent undercover as high school kids to root out a drug ring. Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller take everything — the car chases, the shootouts, the teen kegger, the goofy idiocy of the characters — to the extreme. Some of the absurd violence is funny, some is pointlessly mean and nasty enough to jar viewers out of the action now and then. Hill and Tatum’s odd-couple act is the best thing about the movie, both playing the straight man yet managing to make their partnership much funnier than the hit-and-miss jokes and action really are. The movie’s nimble pacing also helps, sneaking in some slick, wily tidbits and powering through the many gags that would fall flat if you had another second or two to think about them. It doesn’t work all the time, or even most of the time, but it does work enough of the time to make this more enjoyable than most of Hollywood’s unimaginative remakes and updates. R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language, drug material, teen drinking and some violence. 109 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four. — David Germain, AP Movie Writer CASA DE MI PADRE: This is a total goof, of course. That’s obvious even before Will Ferrell, dressed in a cowboy hat and a neckerchief sitting astride a horse in the Mexican desert, opens his mouth and utters his first overly enunciated Spanish words. It’s clear from the titles: a grainy, bloody, Tarantino-style montage of melodramatic spaghetti Western imagery, featuring Christina Aguilera belting out the bombastic theme song. The affection for B-movies and telenovelas is clear in this sendup from Matt Piedmont (making his directing debut) and writer Andrew Steele, longtime collaborators of Ferrell’s from “Saturday Night Live” and “Funny or Die.” But the premise, which would have been just fine as a sketch, feels as if it’s been stretched awfully thin to fill an entire feature. Still, you have to give everyone involved credit for just going for it. That starts with Ferrell himself, speaking solid Spanish (albeit with an Americanized accent) as Armando Alvarez, a dimwitted ranchero whose successful businessman brother, Raul (Diego Luna), is the star of the family as far as their father (the late Pedro Armendariz Jr.) is concerned. When Raul brings home his stunningly beautiful fiancee (Genesis Rodriguez), it further seals his superiority. But it turns out Raul is a drug dealer locked in a turf war with the powerful Onza (Luna’s friend and frequent co-star Gael Garcia Bernal). Intentional continuity errors, missing frames and cheap production values abound. R for bloody violence, language, and some sexual content and drug use. In Spanish with English subtitles. 84 minutes. Two stars out of four. — Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic JEFF, WHO LIVES AT HOME: Mark Duplass has said that he and his brother, Jay, look to the veteran Belgian filmmaking brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne for artistic inspiration, with their naturalistic, documentary-style approach to telling feature stories. That’s evident once again in this sweet, slight tale told with simple intimacy and a deadpan tone to its absurd humor. Not much happens over a meandering day in suburban Baton Rouge, La., but it all builds to a climax that makes the journey worthwhile. Jason Segel plays the titular character, a 30-year-old slacker who still lives in the basement of his childhood home. Inspired by the M. Night Shyamalan movie “Signs,” he believes there are no coincidences, that everything happens for a reason if you’re willing to open your mind and pay attention to the daily details that can determine your fate. And so a simple errand for his widowed, enabling mother (Susan Sarandon in a lovely, understated performance) turns into a weird and winding adventure involving pickup basketball, amateur sleuthing and an elusive man named Kevin. The Duplasses create the sensation that we’re just following along wherever Jeff takes us, without judgment. Ed Helms and Judy Greer co-star. R for language including sexual references and some drug use. 82 minutes. Three stars out of four. — Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic

Obama campaign releases documentary on first term WASHINGTON (AP) — Helped by Hollywood, President Barack Obama’s campaign is releasing a 17minute documentary that portrays the president as a resolute figure who confronted a massive economic downturn and the aftermath of the nation’s war on terrorism with determination and a series of tough decisions. The documentary, commissioned by the Obama campaign, provides a window into how his team is trying to sell the president’s reelection bid: As a man of principle who faced daunting challenges from the OBAMA moment he won election but persevered to rescue the U.S. auto industry, begin rebuilding the economy, pass health care reform and authorize the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. “As president, the tough decisions that he would make would not only determine the course of the nation, but they would reveal the character of the man,” says actor Tom Hanks, the film’s narrator. Obama’s campaign released “The Road We’ve Traveled” on Thursday at 300 screenings across the nation. The documentary was directed by Davis Guggenheim, whose credits include the Academy Award-winning, “An Inconvenient Truth,” about Al Gore’s global-warming campaign. Republicans have dismissed the film, which cost at least $345,000 to make, as nothing more than a slick piece of propaganda that fails to take full stock of Obama’s presidency. Critics will likely note that the documentary doesn’t emphasize a jobless rate of more than 8 percent during most of Obama’s presidency, mount-

ing debt or spiking gas prices. “The American people don’t need a Hollywood movie to know what the president accomplished over the past three years,” said Kirsten Kukowski, a Republican National Committee spokeswoman. “Unfortunately Americans feel Obama’s accomplishments each and every day after President Obama led our country to higher unemployment, record debt, and higher gas prices.” In the week since Obama’s campaign released a trailer for the film, Republicans have pointed to an interview Guggenheim gave to CNN’s Piers Morgan in which the director said “the negative for me was there were too many accomplishments” to cite in the film. “I’m really quite in awe of him as a leader and the choices he made,” he told Morgan. The documentary features interviews with former President Bill Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and others, offering a mostly grim recounting of the problems Obama tackled. After hearing of the dire economic conditions shortly after Obama’s election, his adviser David Axelrod recalls, “All I was thinking at this moment — could we get a recount?” Clinton is a voice of validation throughout the film, crediting Obama for his decision to pursue health care reform — an overhaul that eluded his own presidency — and swift moves to rescue General Motors and Chrysler from collapse.

The American people don’t need a Hollywood movie to know what the president accomplished over the past three years. — Kirsten Kukowski

The former president is effusive in his praise of Obama’s green-lighting of the U.S. raid that killed bin Laden. “He took the harder and the more honorable path. When I saw what had happened, I said to myself, ‘I hope that’s a call I would have made,’” Clinton said. Biden says of Obama’s decision: “If he was wrong, his presidency was done. Over.” Obama’s interview is used sparingly. The president talks about how his mother’s finances were drained by her struggle with cancer — underscoring his pursuit of health care reform — and how he felt after the killing of bin Laden. Obama said he “didn’t have time for a lot of feelings” following the raid “because our guys were still in that compound. And it wasn’t until I knew they were across the border, they were safe, everyone was accounted for, including the dog, that I allowed some satisfaction.” The film takes a dig at Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney, showing his 2008 New York Times op-ed on the faltering U.S. auto industry, which was entitled, “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt.”

Springsteen gives music history lesson Musicians hear tips on how to approach careers AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — They call him The Boss for a reason. Showing there’s no need for a backing band to bring out his outsized charisma on stage, Bruce Springsteen took a rapt audience on a personal music history journey. He also gave young rockers insightful advice in an often hilarious tour-deforce keynote speech that was one of the most anticipated events at the South By Southwest Music Conference and Festival this year. “Good morning, good morning, good morning,” Springsteen said after taking the stage at 12:30 p.m. “Why are we up so (expletive) early. How important is this speech if we’re giving it at noon? Every musician in town is asleep, or they will be by the time I finish this speech.” The Boss on Thursday takes over Austin. Besides the speech, he’s putting on an exclusive show later in the evening. He got off to an often riotous start as he

name-checked all the musicians that have inspired him over the years from Elvis to James Brown and Woody Guthrie to Johnny Rotten. He marveled at the unfathomable diversity at SXSW and led a sing-along of “This Land is Your Land.” Springsteen is hot with his new album, “Wrecking Ball,” debuting at No. 1 in 14 countries after its release last week and with a world tour scheduled. It’s his first tour since last year’s death of his saxophonist and main on-stage sidekick Clarence Clemons. Those musicians who managed to wake up and catch the speech got a lesson in how to approach your career and a long list of influences to check out. About 1,000 SXSW attendees filled a ballroom in the Austin Convention Center for the 50-minute speech and NPR carried it live via Internet stream. Among those attending was Juanes, the Colombian rock star who saw Springsteen live for the

He loved Springsteen’s riff on creativity most of all. “It was great,” said Juanes, who sang in English in public for the first time during a tribute to Guthrie before the speech. “It was like a lesson if you go to a university. He’s got the whole career. I was thinking and thinking, it’s like inside me, many things that he was saying. I feel the same, how we’re so connected.” Springsteen marveled at the diversity in 21st century pop music, almost rapping a long list of genres

that would have boggled the mind of that young boy in New Jersey in the 1960s who had just 10 years of rock ‘n’ roll history to draw his influences from. “Just add neo- and postto everything and mention them all again. Oh, yeah,” he said as an afterthought, “and rock ‘n’ roll.” He talked about first seeing Elvis and his pelvis on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” the exquisite agony of Roy Orbison, the way The Beatles, Bob Dylan and The Animals set music free, and the rise of punk rock and soul music as forces of change in the 1970s.

PROM 2012

TROY DAILY NEWS • WWW.TDN-NET.COM

Add some color to prom this year BY DANAE KING For the Troy Daily News editorial@tdnpublishing.com Prom accessories are going to the next level this year, with brighter colors, more elaborate elements and more options. “Corsages are more like a small arrangement or bouquet that goes along with the theme of the dress,” said Lori Stotler, owner of Your Personal Florist in Troy. Basic corsages start at $18 at Your Personal Florist, and at $18.50 at Dekker Flowers in Sidney. Each place has corsages that can be built on from the basics, with each element causing a slight price increase. Dekker offers a prom corsage for $22.50. “It’s all blinged out with jewels and everything,” said Tiffany Terry, manager of Dekker Flowers. “An average wrist corsage is not all blinged out and done up like we do for prom. We always put the extra things in for prom.”

At Dekker, Terry uses different beads, gems, feathers, pearls and rhinestones to spice up corsages for prom. Stotler offers girls the option of adding beads, rhinestones, jewels, pearls, ribbons, butterflies, feathers and other accent elements into their corsages. Feathers are a new trend this year, Stotler said. “They can soften it and add a pop of color,” Stotler said. Offered in bright colors and inexpensive, Stotler said feathers can work as a filler in a corsage without stealing the focal point from the flowers. Feathers aren’t the only element that is adding a pop of color to corsages, flowers in colors to accent the color of the dress are also becoming more popular. “It used to be all white,” Stotler said. “Stem-dyed blues are really pretty.” Traditional sweetheart roses are the most popular for prom, Stotler said, but she prefers when customers

go with what she calls a “more elegant touch.” For more elegance, Stotler suggests orchids or gerbera daisies. To glitz up corsages even more, girls can decorate the elastic bands that go around their wrists and hold the corsages. “They’ve gone to quite elaborate wrist bands,” Stotler said. The bands can be beaded, feature rhinestones or pearls and can be worn as a bracelet after prom, Stotler said. Wrist corsages aren’t the only option, Stotler also offers upper arm corsages, necklace flowers, hair flowers and anklets. Terry offers upper arm flowers, but hasn’t had any requests for anklets. At Dekker, boutonnieres cost $8.50, Terry said guys usually try to match their boutonniere to the corsage. As far as boutonnieres go, at Your Personal Florist, they run around $6.50 to $8.50. Guys also can have

Harrison cautions young men to order their tuxes as early as possible. Because many area proms are on the same weekend, the really popular choices get rented quickly. “Don’t wait to see what color your date’s dress is,” he said. “Get the tux ordered and worry about a color of tie or vest later. The earlier you can get in, the better you are at getting the style you want.”

As spring approaches, many plans are being made for one of the most memorable events in the life of a teenager — prom night. With many local proms scheduled for April and May, there stands to be a lot of preparation and activity surrounding these big nights. So who better to defer to concerning these events than the juniors and seniors themselves who will be attending the dance? From dress shopping, to scheduling hair and nail appointments, to deciding where to eat, Piqua High junior Taylor School Mayberry and senior Kassidy Liptock are two such girls who are excitedly in the midst of planning their prom nights. “People started talking about it (prom) like a month and a half ago, at least. Everyone talks about it,” Liptock said. “I’m already getting my tan on and already made my hair appointment,” Mayberry said. Each of the girls are planning to go with big groups of 10 or more with “probably more people joining in as the day gets nearer,” said the girls. They explain that everyone meets together at a friend’s house, in which the parents, armed with cameras, document their special evening. Liptock recalls that last year her group of 15 went to Ruby Tuesdays for dinner before prom, but they are still undecided where their dinner reservation will be this year. Mayberry said that her group is considering going to The Greene in Beavercreek. “I think everyone in my group kind of wants to go to The Greene because it is really nice there and will look good for pictures. We have a lot of people in our group, so we were going to go there, maybe, because there are so many choices, and everyone might want to go to different restaurants with just a couple of people,” Mayberry said. Liptock confirms that

hearsay about past groups of prom-goers touring through Walmart before the dance are true, and she admits to also wasting some time there before homecoming last fall, “just to be funny.” In light of the indecision that many teenagers may be facing when considering dinner destinations, below are a few local restaurants between Sidney, Piqua and Troy that are offering some type of deal for those attending prom. • The Bridge in Sidney, which sponsored the prom tickets bought by students of Sidney and Lehman Catholic high schools, has attached a coupon to each ticket for the opportunity to buy one entrée and get one half off. The Bridge is located at 127 W. Poplar St., Sidney, and can be contacted at (937) 492-2542 or at www.thebridgesidney.com. General manager Jason Steeber said, “Since those two schools are local, we are giving them coupons to come here.” • In Piqua, Beppo Uno Pizzeria’s owner Darla Williamson said that they are offering Prom specials as well. Williamson said the teenagers can buy any two pasta entrées, which comes with a salad and garlic bread, and a dessert (to share), for $30. There are several dessert options to choose between, from a Bailey’s Irish Cream cheesecake, to a white chocolate truffle with raspberry sauce, to tiramisu. “I think that’s reasonable for them to be able to take their date out. They don’t need a coupon or anything, they just need to say that they are here for the prom special,” Williamson said. Beppo Uno Pizzeria and Trattoria is located at 414 W. Water St., Piqua, and can be contacted at (937) 6151100 or at www.beppouno.com. • The Troy Filling Station is offering a selection of two dinner entrées for $20 for prom-goers. Dinner entrées vary from a fried shrimp platter to an 8 ounce sirloin, which includes two side dishes. They also plan to offer a special virgin drink menu created especially for prom night. Dining room manager Kevin Ingersoll said, “We have a large game room here, so they would have something to do if they have some time to kill before prom, after they eat, because we are also giving $2 worth of tokens for each entrée purchase.” The Troy Filling Station is located at 2331 W. Market St., Troy, and can be contacted at 339-4800.

Tell parents how much their behavior hurts you Dear Annie: I live five hours away from my parents and a married younger brother. I work two jobs and can only afford to visit my folks once a month or so. Lately, when I have driven out to see them, I am the last to discover that the four of them have already made plans. They never think to ask if I want to join them. Sometimes, I end up attending the same concert but sitting in the back, alone, while they have better seats. Or I house-sit while they spend the weekend at a casino. I have tried phoning weeks ahead to let them know when I am coming, and I've changed my plans if I learn they are already busy that weekend. Yet asking to join them seems to surprise everyone and invariably ends up being quite awkward. What drove me to tears was when they made plans to go to Mexico for a week this summer, and I found out about it when my father told me offhandedly that the four of them had booked their flight. When I asked why I wasn't invited, he responded by saying that they were given paired tickets, and because I am single, it would have meant one unused ticket. My mother then said I was welcome to come if I paid for my own plane ticket and hotel room. I always thought I was close to my family, but now I see that I'm being left out because I am not married. I'd like to be with them, but if I am going to be ignored, how do I handle that? — Exiled Fifth Wheel Dear Exiled: We don't think this is deliberate so much as thoughtless. Your parents and brother make plans together when it is convenient for them and don't consider your presence a factor because you are usually away. You could try explaining how hurt you are when they do this, but don't expect it to change much. Let your parents know when you are planning to visit, and ask whether they have already made plans. If so, don't try to join them. Come the weekend before or after. And in the meantime, do more things on your own or with friends. Dear Annie: My uncle (my mother's brother) and his two sons, both of whom are in their mid-50s, are planning to visit me. Their mom died last year. While I was close to my aunt, I have never communicated much with my uncle or cousins. They didn't even send an email when my dad passed away three years ago. Now, suddenly, these three men are planning to drive from Vermont to my house in Florida. One says he'll make his famous chili in my kitchen. I told them, "Thanks, but no thanks." My mother is angry with me for not welcoming this male trio. They will be at my mother's house for several days, and my husband and I have offered to drive there (it's three hours away) and take everyone out for dinner instead. Am I doing the wrong thing? — Florida Daughter Dear Daughter: No, and your offer to treat them to a meal at Mom's is lovely. Some men are notoriously poor communicators, and the niceties of sending letters or emails escape them. It is obvious that Mom wishes you had a closer relationship and hoped this would provide an opportunity, but welcoming them into your home is entirely your decision. Dear Annie: The letter from "Confused in Connecticut" hit home with me. I was an overweight child myself, so I feel for her. When I was 24, I decided I didn't want to be overweight anymore, so I joined Weight Watchers. It gave me a healthy program to follow and helped me learn what triggered my eating. It taught me to eat appropriately and keep the weight off. That was 33 years ago, and I have been a lifetime member and leader since. Thank you for letting me help. — Bremen, Ind.

SUDOKU PUZZLE

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

HINTS FROM HELOISE

Power strip helps make traveling more like home Dear Heloise: Traveling today with so many rechargeable things — phones, cameras, e-book readers, computers, etc. — I always bring a power strip along. We were in Israel, and one evening my roommate and I had two phones, a camera, an e-book reader and my computer plugged into one power strip. Also, take it in your carry-on. Our phones needed to be charged, and there were only two plugs in the area of the airport we were in. We asked permission to let us plug in the power strip, and then several people could charge their phones, etc., at one time. — Judy F., Baton Rouge, La. SOAP-BAR STORAGE Dear Heloise: I like to buy my

Hints from Heloise Columnist and my husband’s favorite brand of bath soap when it’s on sale. I then put a still-wrapped bar in each appropriate dresser drawer so our clothes keep that shower-fresh scent. — Madge in Florida SAFETY HINT Dear Heloise: Here is a safety hint: When backing out of a parking spot, turn on your four-way

flashers. (It’s usually a button on the dash with a red triangle.) That way, others will know that you intend to back out. This has saved me several times from parking-lot mishaps. — Michael B., Prescott Lakes, Ariz. LIPSTICK Dear Heloise: My favorite lipstick has been discontinued, and I have seven used tubes. Is there any way that the lipstick left at the bottom of the used tubes can be consolidated into usable lipsticks? Please advise. Your column provides many useful ideas to me. — Joyce in Houston Joyce, yes, I can help you to be able to use that favorite shade. With

a lip brush, you can get out many more applications. Or, a small spatula and a plastic pillbox to the rescue! Carefully scoop the lipstick out of the bottom of the tube with a small, plastic spatula. Scrape the product into a plastic pillbox or contact-lens holder, then use a lip brush to apply. — Heloise REUSING PAPER TOWELS Dear Heloise: I save damp but clean paper towels to use again. They are advertised as being reusable, so I really do reuse them. I let the towels dry and use for dirty jobs like wiping off the stove or blotting up yucky spills. Saves money in a green way. — Jo, via email

HOROSCOPE Friday, March 16, 2012 You are likely to be in a favorable growth pattern in the year ahead, not only financially but personally as well. Your gains may not come in large doses, but they will be consistent, impressive and make an imprint on your personality. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — If you have some time to devote to a pleasurable pursuit, get out and go someplace where you can meet and mingle with new people. The change will do you good. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Get out and mingle while your popularity is at a high point. Even those who might have been a bit standoffish in the past will now orbit around your flame. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — The best way to be successful is to make sure that your thinking is totally flexible, so that you’ll be able to see things in a completely new light. Having an open mind is the key. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Go with the flow, even if what occurs is far afield from what you were hoping to do. New doors could be opened to you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — A cooperative spirit will be a major asset in all your relationships and should make you a very popular person to be around. Others will do for you what you do for them. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Because life has been a trifle demanding of you lately, try to take a few moments to engage in something that you really enjoy doing. The most gratifying thing you can do is to be constructive. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Social contacts can be enormously useful at this time, helping you further a special interest. Be sure to make your needs known to your friends as well as your family. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — In order to finalize a matter, you must keep uppermost in your mind what you hope to accomplish. Lock in on a target and you’ll find the results to be extremely gratifying. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You should take care of some old business by getting your message out on the Internet or by telephone. Regardless of the method you use, something fortuitous is likely to come of it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You might find that special something you’ve wanted to purchase but always felt was too expensive at a price you’re willing to pay. Grab it: You might not get a chance like this again. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Try to avoid people who have a tendency to tie up your time. Your personal freedom and mobility will be of particular importance at this point. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Feelings of fulfillment and worth will only come from things you do for others, not from what you do for yourself. Now is the time to make good on your promises.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Friday, March 16, the 76th day of 2012. There are 290 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On March 16, 1912, future first lady Pat Nixon was born Thelma Catherine Ryan in Ely, Nev.

lation next year. Portland lawyer Victoria Blachly said the plan will mirror the Oklahoma law, but it will also include a “virtual asset instruction letter” that lists online information and passwords, along with instructions for when someone dies or becomes incapacitated. “That’s the part that social media providers have been wrestling with,” Blachly said. Like others, Blachly said she began studying the issue after a young relative died and left social media accounts in limbo. Her top concern is the emotional value of social media accounts. “Some people say ‘Well, if I get hit by a bus, what do I care?’” she said. “The people who love you care very much about it.”

Facebook spokesman Tucker Bounds said the company was surprised by the Oklahoma law and was working closely with Nebraska legislators on the latest proposal. The company declined to say how many people had requested access to accounts held by Oklahomans, but Bounds said it was relatively rare. “I can tell you there aren’t people pouring out into the streets asking for access,” Bounds said. Oregon could be the next state to take up the issue. The Oregon State Bar Association has formed a group to work on the matter and hopes to propose legis-

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — When Karen Williams’ son died in a motorcycle crash, the Oregon woman turned to his Facebook account in hopes of learning more about the young man she had lost. Williams found his password and emailed the company, asking administrators to maintain 22-year-old Loren Williams’ account so she could pore through his posts and comments by his friends. But within two hours, she said, Facebook changed the password, blocking her efforts. “I wanted full and unobstructed access, and they balked at that,” said Williams, recalling her son’s death in 2005. “It was heartbreaking. I was a parent grasping at straws to get anything I could get.” Now lawmakers and attorneys in at least two states are considering proposals that would require Facebook and other social networks to grant access to loved ones when a family member dies, essentially making the site contents part of a person’s digital estate. The issue is growing increasingly important as people record more thoughts and experiences online and more disputes break out over that material. Williams, a second-grade teacher from the Portland suburbs, ultimately got back

CAUTION Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable.

reach final Tri-Village falls COLUMBUS (AP) — Defending champion Anna ran its winning streak to 50 by defeating Findlay Liberty-Benton 58-41 in a Division III semifinal on Thursday. The Rockets (27-0) now have the 10th longest streak in Ohio girls history. They’ll face Columbus Africentric on Saturday at 2 p.m. Anna led 39-35 after three quarters. The team worked the ball inside to 6-foot-tall Ashley Frohne and outscored the shorter Eagles 18-4 in the fourth quarter. Frohne scored 10 of her 22 points in the fourth. Erica Huber had 13 points for Anna and Natalie Billing added 12. Cait Craft, an Associated Press coplayer of the year along with Billing, had 15 points for the Eagles.

Kayla Linkous, the Associated Press Division IV co-player of the year, scored all 19 of her points in the second half. Each team made eight three-pointers in the game to set an all-division semifinal record for threes. Arlington 55, Mansfield 44 Amelia Recker had four of her 24 points to spark a second-half surge that carried Arlington to a 55-44 victory against Mansfield St. Peter’s in a Division IV girls state semifinal at Value City Arena on Thursday. Africentric 57, Smithville 37 Kiyanna Black showed at a critical time why she is the Associated Press Division III co-player of the year.

With a little help

No. 12 VCU scores upset

No. 1 Syracuse avoids historic upset

Bradford Burgess hit a key 3-pointer with 1:33 left and Shaka Smart coached VCU to another tournament surprise, holding off Wichita State 62-59 in the South Regional on Thursday. The 12th-seeded Rams (29-6) led by as many as 13 in the second half, but the Shockers closed to 54-53 on Garrett Stutz’s layup with 5:39 left. See Page 18.

Indians win, Reds fall in exhibitions Justin Masterson pitched four hitless innings and the Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago White Sox 12-3 Thursday. Meanwhile, Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto worked four innings in his third spring appearance and allowed four hits and one earned run in a 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Angels. See Page 20.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Syracuse was missing its starting center. North CarolinaAsheville thought the Orange got help from three men in striped shirts. With Syracuse facing the kind of NCAA tournament history no team wants to make, the topseeded Orange rallied for a 72-65 victory Thursday in the second round of the East Regional. Two calls by the officials had the sellout crowd of 18,927 at Consol Energy Center except for those wearing orange booing throughout the final minute but it didn’t matter. Syracuse made it 109-0 for No. 1 seeds against No. 16s since the NCAA went to a field of 64 in 1985. “I don’t think luck had any-

thing to do with this game today,” Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said, “and I think the better team won.” The Orange were staring at NCAA tournament history. A No. 1 seed has never lost to a No. 16 seed, and they were trailing North Carolina-Asheville with just over 6 minutes to play. “We gave it everything we had. We battled the best that we could,” Asheville coach Eddie Biedenbach said. “These guys are great. They deserved a better fate than they had today.” Syracuse, which won the national championship in 2003, had already made negative history in the tournament, becoming the first No. 2 seed to lose to

Syracuse ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 a 15 when it fell 73-69 to Richmond in 1991. The Orange managed to avoid adding another black mark by holding Asheville to one field goal over the final minute while they went 6 of 7 from the free throw line. Syracuse was playing without 7-foot center Fab Melo, who was declared ineligible for academic reasons by the school and will miss the tournament. “The fact that this game was close had nothing nothing to do with the center position,” Boeheim said. Syracuse (32-2) will play eighth-seeded

Kansas State in the third round on Saturday. The Wildcats beat Southern Mississippi 70-64. The Bulldogs (24-10), who talked Wednesday about pulling off the upset, were led by J.P. Primm’s 18 points. They led 34-30 at halftime the third 16 to do that but the Orange took the lead for good with 6:17 left on a turnaround jumper by reserve James Southerland, who had 15 points and a season-high eight rebounds. “James has to continue to make the shots and I think he will,” Syracuse guard Scoop Jardine said. “I’m happy for him

because he’s a big part of our offense and today he showed it.” Southerland, who scored 13 points in the second half, had three of the Orange’s five 3-pointers. “James came in, gave us a huge lift off the bench,” Boeheim said of the 6-foot-8 junior. The Bulldogs got within three points three times in the final 1:04 but could get no closer as Syracuse made its free throws and the officials made a couple of controversial calls. The first call that caused the crowd to react was a lane violation with

1:20 left. Jardine missed the front end of a 1-and-1 but Primm was called for passing the head of the key before Jardine let the shot go. Jardine got to shoot the front end again, made it, and made the second for a 64-58 lead. “They gave me a second chance to make the shot and I made it,” Jardine said. “I got myself into a rhythm. I made every free throw from there on out because I do what I practice and believed in myself at that time and made the shots for us.” Primm said: “They showed it on the replay, I think the crowd let him know that it wasn’t the

right call. … Like I said, when it gets crunch time like that, like I say, everyone is human.” With 35 seconds left and the Orange leading 66-63, the ball appeared to go out of bounds off Syracuse’s Brandon Triche but the officials pointed the other way and gave it to the Orange. Jardine made two free throws a second later. Coordinator of Officiating John Adams said he would have given the ball to UNC Asheville on the inbounds play. “The out of bounds is not reviewable and it is not a play we would discuss,” official Ed Corbett

told a pool reporter. “I’m not going to comment further because it is a judgment call. It was a clear (lane) violation. The player released early, before the ball hit the rim. We’ve since watched the replay 20 times and it was the right call.” Boeheim had his own take on the play with Triche. “First of all, all the noise about the ball going out of bounds, I mean, Triche got pushed. That’s why it went out of bounds,” he said. “Maybe they missed the out of bounds, they missed the foul call. Those things equal out.”

A taste of madness No. 12 VCU scores lone upset early, knocks off Wichita St. PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Bradford Burgess hit a key 3-pointer with 1:33 left and Shaka Smart coached VCU to another tournament surprise, holding off Wichita State 62-59 in the South Regional on Thursday. The 12th-seeded Rams (29-6) led by as many as 13 in the second half, but the Shockers closed to 54-53 on Garrett Stutz’s layup with 5:39 left. Troy Daniels hit a 3-pointer for the Rams, and Joe Ragland answered with his own for Wichita State. Toure Murry made a 3 that gave Wichita State the lead, but Burgess came back with his big shot to give the Rams a 60-59 edge. Darius Theus’ runner from about six feet provided the final margin. Stutz’s long jumper just before the buzzer was off for fifth-seeded Wichita State (26-6). Ragland finished with 15 points after getting off to a slow start. Burgess finished with 16 points, and Theus and Daniels had 10 points apiece for the Rams, who beat Georgetown, Purdue, Florida State and Kansas in the tournament last year, becoming just the third No. 11 seed to reach the Final Four. The run ended when they lost to Butler in Houston. Virginia Commonwealth (29-8) earned a second straight tournament berth by edging Drexel 59-56 in the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament this season. Wichita State was ranked No. 18 in the final The Associated Press poll. The Shockers won the regular-season title in the Missouri Valley Conference, but lost to Illinois State in the semifinals of the conference tournament. It was the first NCAA tournament appearance for Wichita State since 2006, when it advanced to the regional semifinals. There were lots of missed shots on both sides early, but Rob Brandenberg hit a 3pointer to put VCU in front 17-13 midway through the first half. Wichita State put together an 11-0 run to make it 2421 with 5:27 left. Carl Hall capped the surge with a layup. Treveon Graham broke

Thursday. the VCU scoring drought with a jumper and Burgess added a 3-pointer, sparking a 13-1 run that lifted the Rams to a 34-25 lead at the break. Burgess scored 13 points during a dominating first half. Virginia Commonwealth stretched the lead to 41-29 after Brandenberg’s layup. His jumper a short time later gave the Rams a 46-33 lead, but Ben Smith had a layup before David Kyles scored five quick points to trim VCU’s lead to 46-40. Kentucky 81, W. Kentucky 66 LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Terrence Jones had 22 points and 10 rebounds, Doron Lamb scored 16 and

top-seeded Kentucky began its quest for an eighth national title with a staggering display of athleticism in an 81-66 victory over Western Kentucky on Thursday night. On a day when Syracuse nearly became the first No. 1 seed ever to lose to a 16, the Wildcats (33-2) are clearly relishing their growing role as favorites. Freshman and player of the year candidate Anthony Davis added 16 points, nine rebounds and seven blocks for Kentucky, which was never seriously threatened. Baylor 68, S. Dakota St. 60 ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Pierre Jackson scored 18 points and Baylor held off

14th-seeded South Dakota State 68-60 Thursday night in the second round of the NCAA tournament. The third-seeded Bears (28-7) fell behind by 12 in the first half before taking a 36-28 halftime lead that they never relinquished. But it was a nail-biter. Making their first trip to the NCAA tournament, the Jackrabbits (27-8) misfired on a 3-pointer with 25 seconds left that would have made it one-point game. Then, the Bears iced it at the line. Connecticut vs. Iowa State, Indiana vs. New Mexico State and UNLV vs. Colorado were not complete at time of press.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Ryan Evans scored 18 points and Jordan Taylor added 17 points and six assists for No. 4 Wisconsin, which ended No. 13 Montana’s schoolrecord 14-game winning streak with a 73-49 victory. The Badgers (25-9) improved to 10-1 in NCAA tournament openers under Bo Ryan, the winningest coach in the program’s history. Art Steward’s 18 points led the Grizzles (25-7), who were familiar with the Badgers’ style because one of their assistants, Freddie Owens, played at Wisconsin from 2001-04. Still, his inside information couldn’t help the Grizzlies pull off the upset. Kansas State. 70, Southern Miss 64 PITTSBURGH — Rodney McGruder scored 30 points and Jordan Henriquez added 15 points, nine rebounds and six blocks to lead Kansas State over Southern Mississippi. The Wildcats (22-10) advanced past their opening tournament game for the third straight year. Neil Watson led Southern Miss (25-9) with

16 points, LaShay Page had 15 and Kentucky transfer Darnell Dodson scored all 14 of his points in the second half. But the Golden Eagles let a chance to win their first-ever tournament game slip away in the final minutes. Vanderbilt 79, Harvard 70 ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — John Jenkins made all six of his free throws down the stretch and finished with 27 points to help Vanderbilt hold off Harvard in a game billed as “The Brain Bowl.” Brad Tinsley scored 16 for the Commodores (2510), who followed last weekend’s stunner over top-ranked Kentucky with a win over a school many consider to be a No. 1 in the classroom, that is. Gonzaga 77, West Virginia 54 PITTSBURGH — Robert Sacre and Gary Bell Jr. scored 14 points apiece as Gonzaga routed West Virginia. Kevin Pangos added 13 points and five assists for the seventh-seeded Bulldogs (26-6), who will play Ohio State or Loyola (Md.) in the third round on Saturday.

Siva helps No. 4 Louisville wear out Davidson PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Louisville point guard Peyton Siva did his best Steve Nash impersonation against Davidson. Siva had 17 points and six assists, many times driving inside and then pulling back out to the perimeter a la the two-time NBA MVP, and the fourthseeded Cardinals moved on in the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2009 with a 69-62 victory over Davidson on Thursday. The idea behind Siva’s tactic was to help tire out the Wildcats and their uptempo offense, and it

worked. “We said one of the greatest things Steve Nash does off the pick and roll, if he probes the lane and he decides he doesn’t have anything, he just dribbles it back out and takes a different angle of the screen,” Louisville coach Rick Pitino said. “I think that helped Peyton, watching Steve Nash do it.” After getting ousted in their opening game the past two seasons, Pitino and the Cardinals (27-9) advanced to the third round of the West Regional. Louisville, com-

ing off a surprising run to the Big East tournament title, is making its sixth straight appearance in the NCAAs. Davidson (25-8) couldn’t quite get a read on Siva and it wore out the Wildcats. “Our guys defended ball screens three, four or five times during a possession,” veteran coach Bob McKillup said. “I don’t know if you’ve ever defended a ball screen before, but when you do, you better move your legs, and that is wearing and tearing on their legs.”

Murray State 58, Colorado State 41 LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Isaiah Canaan scored 15 points in Murray State’s return to the NCAA tournament after a two-year wait, and Donte Poole added 13 to lead the Racers to a 5841 victory over Colorado State on Thursday in the second round. Canaan mishandled the ball in the closing seconds of a two-point loss to Butler in 2010 as a freshman. He’s the leader of this group now, and Murray State (311) expects a long run in this tournament as the mid-

major darlings. Marquette 88, BYU 68 LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Jae Crowder finished with 25 points and 16 rebounds, Darius Johnson-Odom had 12 of his 20 points in the second half and Marquette withstood another furious BYU rally for an 88-68 Thursday. Brandon Davies had 19 points and 12 rebounds for the 14th-seeded Cougars (26-9), who looked for a brief while as if they might have a chance to top their historic comeback in the First Four on Tuesday night. After trailing by as many as 19 in

the first half, BYU got within 52-46 with 15:28 left. But the Golden Eagles (28-5) were simply too big and too strong. New Mexico 75, Long Beach St. 68 PORTLAND, Ore. — Kendall Williams scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half and bottled up Long Beach State star Casper Ware defensively to help fifth-seeded New Mexico hold on for a 75-68 victory in the West Regional on Thursday. Drew Gordon added 18 points and 13 rebounds for the Lobos.

Manning

Masterson strong in Tribe win

■ CONTINUED FROM 17 wants to win games.” If there’s no word from Manning by Friday, the Cardinals might wind up having to move on. That’s because Arizona will decide by 4 p.m. EDT on Friday whether or not to release quarterback Kevin Kolb, who would be due $7 million if he is on the roster Saturday. Kolb’s not the only player whose future is being affected by Manning, who became a free agent March 7, when the Indianapolis Colts decided to cut him to avoid paying a $28 million bonus. In a move that the Titans can only hope will help their efforts to attract Manning, they improved their offensive line by signing free-agent guard Steve Hutchinson on Thursday. He is a five-time All Pro who spent the past six seasons with Minnesota before being released Saturday. It also wasn’t clear

whether a surprise suitor could emerge, the way it’s happened in baseball recently, with Prince Fielder signing with the Detroit Tigers, Albert Pujols going to the Los Angeles Angels or Cliff Lee winding up with the Philadelphia Phillies. If Manning wants to feel wanted, there is no shortage of wooing going on. Set aside all of those face-to-face meetings that lasted six hours or more, and the cross-country trips, and look instead to the way government figures are getting involved. “I’m the governor; I’m not supposed to be getting involved in sports issues. Although I did hear that my buddy (Tennessee Gov.) Bill Haslam was calling Manning, trying to call Manning, to encourage him to come to Tennessee,” Gov. John Colorado Hickenlooper said in a telephone interview.

Cueto improves in Reds loss GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Justin Masterson pitched four hitless innings and the Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago White Sox 12-3 Thursday. Jose Lopez hit a threerun homer and Shelley Duncan had a two-run shot, his third homer of the spring, for Cleveland. A.J. Pierzynski hit a solo homer for Chicago. Masterson faced the minimum 12 batters, striking out four. His only walk was immediately erased on a double play when shortstop Jason Donald made a backhand stab of a sharp grounder hit by Gordon Beckham to end the third. White Sox starter Dyland Axelrod gave up three hits and one run over

Cleveland Indians’ Justin Masterson pitches against the Chicago White Sox Thursday in Goodyear, Ariz. three innings. Michael Brantley had a two-run double and Ryan Spilborghs a pair of twoout RBI hits for the Indians, who had 17 hits. Angels 3, Reds 1 TEMPE, Ariz. — While newly acquired slugger Albert Pujols has been hitting up a storm, Los

Angeles Angels newcomer C.J. Wilson has been equally as impressive on the mound. Wilson put together his third consecutive strong outing, pitching four innings in Thursday’s 3-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds. After eight scoreless

innings this spring, Wilson gave up a run when Denis Phipps hit a double that scored Miguel Cairo, helped by left fielder Vernon Wells’ error. Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto worked four innings in his third spring appearance and allowed four hits and one earned run. His outing was an improvement over his previous game when he gave up five hits and three runs in two innings against Oakland. “This outing is the one I feel is the best so far,” Cueto said. “I used all the pitches that I have to be ready for the season.” The Reds managed only four hits, with Phipps getting two. “Cueto threw the ball well,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “All of our guys threw the ball well. We’re just having trouble scoring runs, well, scoring as much as the other teams.”

Williams inks deal with Bills NEW YORK (AP) — Megatron and Mario, the richest players in the NFL. When linebacker-end Mario Williams signed a six-year contract Thursday with the Buffalo Bills worth $100 million, $50 million guaranteed, he became the highest-paid defensive player in league history. Williams’ megadeal followed by one day the $132 million contract the Detroit Lions gave their star receiver, Calvin Johnson. Johnson’s haul is the most for any NFL player at any position. Other than Peyton Manning, whose search for a new team continues, Williams was the most sought free agent in this year’s class; Johnson already was under contract in Detroit. “It’s one of those things you don’t get many chances like this, and opportunities to come in and be the guy who can help the team get across the hump,” said Williams, who was in Buffalo since the free agency period opened Tuesday, having been flown in from his home in North Carolina. “And that’s definitely what I’m here for. My whole intention is to come here, work with guys like Kyle (Williams) and (Marcell) Dareus and make this thing happen.” The first overall draft pick by Houston in 2006,

Williams became a pass rushing force and allaround standout at end before moving to linebacker in the Texans’ new 3-4 alignment last year. But he played only five games in 2011 before a torn chest muscle sidelined him. Buffalo targeted Williams to upgrade a defense that ranked 26th overall and 28th against the run. The Bills had only 29 sacks last year; Williams has 53 for his career. Earlier Thursday, guard Ben Grubbs agreed on a five-year, $36 million contract with New Orleans, where he will replace All-Pro Carl Nicks, who left the previous day for NFC South rival Tampa Bay. Grubbs gets $16 million guaranteed, including a $10 million signing bonus. “Ben comes to us from an offense in Baltimore that experienced a lot of success, both running the football and in pass protection,” Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said. “He was a big part of that and we believe that he can come right in and fit into our program without missing a beat.” Nicks is considered one of the league’s best pass blockers and was a key part of the Saints’ recordsetting offense. Grubbs made the Pro Bowl last season with the Ravens.

Harrington sets course record PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) — Padraig Harrington knew he was playing better golf than his scores indicated. He just wasn’t expecting the lowest official score of his life, a 10-under 61 to set the course record Thursday in the Transitions Championship. Harrington took a step toward ending 17 months and 37 tournaments without a victory when he made 10 birdies, including a 75footer late in his round, to build a three-shot lead among the early starters at Innisbrook. With a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th how could it not go in the way his day was going? he broke by one shot the record at the esteemed Copperhead Course at Innisbrook that had been held by Mark Calcavecchia in 2007 and Jeff Sluman in 2004. Harrington’s previous best was a 62 three times, most recently at the 2009 Portugal Masters. He also had a 61 at the Nedbank

Challenge in 2001, an unofficial event. It was not recognized as a course record because of preferred lies. Will Claxton birdied the 18th for a 64, a score that would have put him atop the leaderboard at Innisbrook the last seven years. John Senden, coming off a 65 in the final round at Doral, was in a large group at 66 that included William McGirt and 51-year-old Kenny Perry, making a rare appearance on the PGA Tour. LPGA Tour PHOENIX — Topranked Yani Tseng played a seven-hole stretch on the back nine in 7 under and finished with a 7-under 65 for a share of the firstround lead with Hee Young Park in the LPGA Founders Cup. Tseng birdied the 11th, 13th and 14th holes, eagled the par-5 15th, and birdied the 16th and 17th. She had a 4-foot try for another birdie on 18, but pulled her putt just left.
