Eat a meal for ‘farmer’s share’

Volume 104, No. 66


Breakfast a lesson in the economics of farming

Riverside celebrates 60 years


Riverside of Miami County, serving more than 900 residents with developmental disabilities, is celebrating 60 years throughout 2012. This year-long event will give the service provider an opportunity to share its story from the beginnings of a grassroots movement in 1952.


For two quarters, folks who attend the sixth annual Farmer’s Share Breakfast will not only get a full meal, but a taste of how much it takes for a farmer to put the sausage in the skillet. The Miami County Farm

Bureau’s annual breakfast has grown from its humble beginnings the first year to a full-blown breakfast bonanza, according to organization director Mandy Havenar. “Our first year we had about 150 people and last year we had a crowd of more than 1,000 who

came for breakfast,” Havenar said. “It has caught on and people enjoy coming each year and we expect several hundred more this year, too.” The Miami County Farm Bureau’s sixth annual Farmers Share Breakfast will be from 7:3010:30 a.m. Saturday at the Duke Lundgard Building on the Miami County Fairgrounds for just 50

Demjanjuk dies in Germany

Nation marks St. Pat’s Day

John Demjanjuk was convicted of being a low-ranking guard at the Sobibor death camp, but his 35-year fight on three continents to clear his name — a legal battle that had not yet ended when he died Saturday at age 91 — made him one of the best-known faces of Nazi prosecutions. See Page A5.

Owner to serve up healthful food at new cafe BY KATIE YANTIS Staff Writer


Mix up a little home cooking and healthy options with a little colorful flavor and one will be sitting in a new cafe in downtown Troy. Local resiTROY dent Heather Lyons is going to offer just that as she plans to open her own cafe in downtown Troy — Unrefined Cafe. “It’s what I was born and bred to do,” Lyons said. As she grew up in the restaurant business at Loretta’s Kitchen in Christiansburg, Lyons said she knew there was going to be a day that she would have her own establishment. “My mom wanted me to take over her restaurant, then I got into the health field and I decided I wanted to serve a little bit different food than what she’s doing,”

State will treat entire lake this spring to fight algae ST. MARYS (AP) — Ohio’s largest inland lake will be treated this spring with a chemical aimed at heading off the toxic algae blooms that have hurt area tourism. The state says it will treat all 13,000 acres of Grand Lake St. Marys, instead of just part of it, with aluminum sulfate beginning April 1. The 1

alum is used to neutralize phosphorous, which gets into the lake from manure and chemical runoffs. The phosphorous feeds bluegreen toxic algae, which produces a nerve toxin that can sicken humans and kill pets and other animals. The toxic algae led to previous lake closures and advisories against swimming and boating and even

warnings against touching the water, all of which were devastating to the local tourism industry. This year’s alum treatment will start two months earlier than last year’s treatment and should allow the phosphorous to bind to the alum more effectively and improve water quality, officials said. “We are committed to

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago dyed its river green, bagpipes sounded on New York’s 5th Avenue, and in Georgia, crowds waited for 30 minutes to buy beer for breakfast before watching Savannah’s 188-year-old St. Patrick’s Day parade. Thousands gathered Saturday morning along the Chicago River, some in shamrock-shaped sunglasses and others dressed as leprechauns with fake orange beards. Applause erupted as a motorboat sped in circles and a man on board dumped a secret dye in the water, quickly turning it a psychedelic green. The much-loved annual ritual kicked off a day of partying. This year, the guest of honor was Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, who took part in the parade of floats, traditional Irish dancers and musicians marching along an avenue near Chicago’s lakefront. Kenny began the day at City Hall with Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Both men sported green ties and shamrocks in their lapels. The prime minister said he was honored to take part in Chicago’s festivities and praised the city with a large Irish population for being so receptive to immigrants. “That’s a privilege that I shall remember for a long time,” Kenny said of his role in the festivities. In Savannah, revelers set out folding chairs before dawn to catch the parade, a tradition that started in 1824 as a procession with religious roots by settlers who immigrated to the Georgia coast. Lines of thirsty patrons were spilling out of downtown bars before the pre-parade Mass wrapped up at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. “It’s ridiculous for still being in the a.m.,” said Timmy Watkins, a utility worker who emerged from Pinkie Master’s Lounge with a beer in each hand after standing

Breakfast • Continued from A1 eggs, sausage and choice of coffee, milk or juice. “The whole idea is to take a meal that costs around $3.50 and see how much the farmer gets from that meal is just the 50 cents,â€? Havenar said. “Most of the meal’s money goes toward the packaging, ship-

ping and the marketing, and not to the people who work hard to produce the food that is on the table.� Havenar said the annual breakfast is a great time to visit with Miami County Farm Bureau members to learn more about the organization, but also to visit with local elected officials, friends,

family and neighbors. “We have displays from the Soil and Water District, the Miami County Park District and just fun facts about agriculture,� Havenar said. “Many people have moved away from the family farm and don’t really see where their food is coming from, and this is one time of the year we can

make that connection.� The following organizations contribute to the annual Farmers Share Breakfast: Miami Pork Council, Farm Credit Services, Weavers Egg Farms, House Custom Meats, Ebbert’s Field Seed Inc., Plain View Farms, Kevin Mote Petroleum, Troy Elevator, Tip Top

Canning, Rogers Grain Inc., Miami County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee, Rudy’s Inc. Grain Elevator, Miami County Ag Society and Harvest Land Co-op-Covington Ag Center. For more information, call the Miami County Farm Bureau office at 3351471.

Cafe exercise science degree and CrossFit helped with my nutrition a lot,� she said. “That is where I learned how to really eat well.� Growing up being surrounded by what she called “good comfort food,� Lyons said she is going to offer the same delicious concepts with a healthy mix. “I don’t want people to get scared. It’s not rabbit food,� Lyons said with a laugh. “It’s just real food — away from getting processed, chemically engineered or altered food in any way. It’s real good, it’s good food.� As guests walk in, Lyons said they can expect a delistyle restaurant, where they can sit down and talk and enjoy a meal with friends or family. Available in the store will be sandwiches, salads, cold sides, soups and homemade pies. “All of our dressings and condiments are homemade,� Lyons said. “I will be making all of them from scratch. It’s real food, not fake food and it’s real good.� To help keep the concept as real as possible, she said there will be a lot of help from local farmers. “Larry Holsinger will be making our bread. He uses honey instead of sugar and he grinds his own wheat,� Lyons said. An additional vendor she will use is the Troy Meat Shop, as well as “utilizing the farmer’s markets as much as possible.� In addition, she also will buy from Fulton Farms and other local farms. “When things are in season we will have as (many) fresh options as we can,� she said.

She said while the food options are healthy and natural, customers can expect to leave happy. “I don’t want to scare people. You are going to leave here full and happy,� she said with a smile. Located in the heart of downtown, Lyons said she picked her location because it seemed as though it would be her niche. “I like Troy and I like the idea of being a part of it,� she said. “I like downtown because I feel like it is a little niche. If you go other places, it’s a lot of chains, it has more of a homey feel downtown.� Lyons said she hopes the cafe will be not only a place for a breakfast and lunch option, but also a dinner option. “This location is used to lunch,� she said. “I would love for it to be breakfast and dinner. We have a menu that works well for dinner. It’s going to be what people want from this location, though.� Not only did Lyons say she wants people to leave full and happy, but she wants them to be able to hang out and enjoy sitting in the cafe and enjoy the creative environment. “I feel like you can sit in here and have an awesome conversation,� Lyons said. With full colorful walls and a chalkboard for being creative, Lyons said it’s a place for people to be fed, but to be creative. “I picked the colors and gave them to her (Jennifer Noren) and told her to go crazy,� she said. Those looking to fill up their stomachs and release the creative juices can visit Unrefined Cafe at 4 W. Main St., Troy, or call at 5527168.

of the lake was more successful than expected. It removed 56 percent of the phosphorous from the treated areas, and Ohio EPA Director Scott Nally said the lake was able to stay open all summer because of the treatment.

In January, Zehringer told a public forum on the cleanup efforts that the lake’s water quality is moving in the right direction and that he hopes this year will be better than last year.

This year, the president stopped into the Dubliner Restaurant and Pub near Washington’s landmark Union Station for a pint, accompanied by Moneygall bar owner Ollie Hayes and Henry Healy, an eighth cousin to Obama and the closest relative still living in Ireland. Across the ocean in Dublin, an estimated half a million people turned out for the parade that serves as a focal point for worldwide celebrations. It brought some cheer to a nation that has been grappling with 14 percent unemployment, a massive debt burden and a resumption of emigration levels last seen in the 1980s. In his St. Patrick’s Day message, Catholic Cardinal Sean Brady offered prayers to the estimated 50,000 citizens who have emigrated in the past year to escape Ireland’s weak economy..

in line for 30 minutes. “These are both mine. I waited in line long enough. I figured I’d get two.� On Chicago’s riverfront, 6-year-old Elly Weber sat on her father’s shoulders wearing some bobbly, antennae-like shamrock headgear and marveled at how the river first turned yellow and then, almost immediately, an eye-popping green. Her 3-year-old brother, Sean, was equally stupefied. “It’s getting all green,� he cried out. “Will everything turn green? Why?� A few kayakers couldn’t resist the chance to paddle through the unnaturallooking water. Crowds watching from a bridge roared their approval when one of the paddlers purposely half-capsized his kayak, dunking himself in

the green water. In New York, a sea of green, kilts and bagpipes flowed along 5th Avenue as large crowds gathered for the city’s 251st annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. Cardinal Timothy Dolan, leader of the city’s Roman Catholics, announced before the parade stepped off that iconic St. Patrick’s Cathedral would undergo a $175 million renovation. He said the first phase will involve cleaning the cathedral’s soot-damaged exterior and replacing its windows. Even President Barack Obama paid tribute to his Irish heritage, as one of his great-great-great grandfathers on his Kansas mother’s side emigrated from Ireland in 1850. Last year, Obama visited his ancestral home of Moneygall and drank a Guinness at the local pub.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Telegraph, London, on family values: A Conservative government should put the well-being of the family at the heart of its policies. People want to be able to make a good life for themselves and their loved ones without fearing that the government of the day will do anything to inhibit or undermine them in this ambition. Three policies currently causing political controversy threaten to do just that. Proposals to impose a “mansion tax” on high-value properties, to withdraw child benefit from higher-rate tax payers, and to legislate for gay marriage have a unifying theme. They all risk undermining the traditional family. A mansion tax strikes at the very notion of the continuity of family life. The family home is an important symbol of stability. Imposing an arbitrary tax on expensive homes attacks that principle. … The Centre for Policy Studies points out that it would hit the “income poor, equity rich” — many of them older people. The unfairness of George Osborne’s proposal to strip child benefit from higher rate taxpayers was well rehearsed in the Commons debate. Its most egregious impact is that it penalizes stay-at-home mothers compared with dual-income families. How can a Government that professes family values countenance such a measure? As for gay marriage, where is the groundswell of opinion for such fundamental change to society’s central institution? David Cameron’s anxiety to appear a modernizing party leader threatens to create a wholly unnecessary political headache while raising profound questions about the meaning of marriage and of the family. These are perilous waters for a Tory-led government. The talk is all of raising taxes: no one seems willing to make the case for lowering them. The mindset is anti-aspirational, the impact anti-family — yet the projected revenues are a drop in the bucket. Cameron should think very carefully about the un-Conservative course on which he seems set. The Globe and Mail, Toronto, on Russian elections: The Putinian universe appears to be unfolding as planned. Vladimir Putin has been elected to a third term as president. His loyal place-holder, Dmitri Medvedev, will either become prime minister, or be dispensed with — his services having been rendered, the spirit of Russia’s constitutional term limits duly thwarted. Yet the victory tears shed by Putin aside, this is a dangerous moment for Russia. December’s parliamentary elections were characterized by election-rigging that provoked demonstrations across the country. The bar was raised for the presidential vote. Unfortunately, Putin has not successfully scaled it. His re-election by a large margin was secured on the basis of conditions “clearly skewed in favor of one candidate,” as observers from the Organization for Co-operation and Security in Europe dryly put it. This only serves to emphasize the perception of a prearranged handover of power. A managed democracy, as the Putinists would practice it, is not a true democracy. What has become clear these past three months, as the demonstrations have continued, is that Russians themselves agree that this is not an acceptable approach to democracy — and a democracy is what Russia nominally is and aspires to be. It is why, for example, the country — unlike China — is a member of the G8 group of industrialized democracies. In responding to the result, the White House moved delicately, on the one hand, congratulating the Russian people for voting in large numbers, on the other expressing concern over the conduct of the vote… The international community, including Canada, is in an awkward position. It needs to censure Putin, yet should do so in a way that appeals to his better angels, should they exist. Now that Putin has full control, he can afford to rule with a looser grip. He should not prevent a Russian spring, but lead it.

Assault on coach for kid’s mistake inexcusable A while back, I saw a picture on the Internet that was so accurate it was scary — for a number of reasons. It had two panels, the first dated 40 years ago and the other labeled as present day. In the first, it showed two parents, their child and a teacher at a parent-teacher conference. The parents held an F-filled report card accusingly at their frightened kid, saying “What’s the meaning of these marks?” while the teacher sat with a disappointed look on her face. In the present day, the parents held that same report card the same way, saying the same thing — only aimed at a frightened teacher. And the kid? Stood there with a smug, self-satisfied smile on his face. That’s the world we live in today, where children are taught that nothing they do is their fault and parents honestly believe that if their kids fail at school, it’s the teachers’ fault and has nothing at all to do with their kid’s inability to learn or study or their own inability to keep the kid focused on school. No one is responsible for anything that goes wrong except everyone else. Sure, it’s not 100 percent and there are still plenty of good kids and parents out there, but it’s cer-

Josh Brown Sunday Columnist tainly not the exception to the rule anymore. That logic is fast becoming the norm. And it can be even more extreme in athletics. According to a Yahoo! Sports article, in Michigan City, Ind. — a mere 239 miles from here — a parent savagely beat an assistant basketball coach on his daughter’s middle school team. After practice one day, 37-year-old Shelley Miller brutalized St. Stanislas assistant Jeffrey Yackus because he found out his daughter had been punished during the practice for getting into an argument with a teammate. She ran a couple laps — just like she deserved to, just like any athlete caught bickering with a teammate deserves to. Her dad beat the coach into unconsciousness.

After Miller knocked Yackus to the ground, he climbed on top of him and continued to pummel him — even after he was out cold — until head coach Robert Johnson pulled the psycho dad off of him. Does Miller even know that he was out of line, even after a felony battery charge? Doubtful. Said someone that was with him at his arraignment — and this is printed exactly as it appears in the article — “If the coach is [expletive] with your kid, what are you to do? You can’t talk to him.” To paraphrase, maybe the kid himself shouldn’t have been [expletive] in the first place. Coaches have the most unenviable job in the world these days — mainly because 20-40 other people think they share the job equally with them. But here’s the thing. They have that job because they’ve earned it. They deserve that job. They get paid to do that job. They’re not going to be showing up at any parent’s office building or restaurant or wherever else they may work and criticize the way they do their job. That’s not to say they don’t deserve some civil constructive feedback every now and then. Yes, Michigan City idiots, you CAN talk to them — if you do it right. If you

do it respectfully, intelligently and with backup for your points. Because they deserve to be treated with respect. They don’t deserve to be punched in the face when your kid screws up. Had I or anyone I knew growing up gone to their parents and whined after being forced to run laps for doing something dumb, they would have immediately asked, “Well, what did you do to deserve that?” Every time. Now — I’d wager about 60 percent of the time — a parent’s initial action is to go directly to the coach and ask, ” Why did you do this to my child?” And it’s only getting worse. Seriously, is it going to take a parent murdering a coach in cold blood to teach kids to take responsibility for their own actions? Or will that even do it? Because this incident came very close to that — personally, I’d like to see Miller hit with an attempted murder charge for continuing to beat an unconscious man who was unable to defend himself — and the people surrounding the family still don’t get it.

In this May 12, 2011, file picture John Demjanjuk leaves the court room, in Munich, southern Germany. German police say John Demjanjuk, who was charged with 28,060 counts of accessory to murder and convicted last year of serving as a Nazi death camp guard, has died. Rosenheim police official Kilian Steger told The Associated Press the 91-year-old died Saturday at the home for elderly people in southern Germany where he stayed since the end of his trial in Munich last year. Holocaust, Israeli historian Yehuda Bauer said in a telephone interview from Jerusalem. “His case illustrates the principle that whenever even a very low-ranking Nazi criminal can be found and convicted, the importance is not in the sentence, not in the amount of time such a person may have to sit in jail … the important thing is to bring the crime to the attention of the general public.” But attorney Yoram Sheftel, who defended Demjanjuk in the Israel trial, criticized the German conviction of Demjanjuk as a Sobibor “Wachmann” the

lowest rank of the “Hilfswillige” prisoners who agreed to serve the Nazis and were subordinate to German SS men while higher-ranking Germans were acquitted in years past. “I can only call it a prostitution of the Holocaust,” he said. After his conviction in May, Demjanjuk was sentenced to five years in prison, but was appealing the case to Germany’s high court. He was released pending the appeal, and died a free man in his own room in a nursing home in the southern Bavarian town of Bad Feilnbach.

SIDNEY — Travis Robert Bean, age 34, of Sidney, Ohio, died suddenly Friday, March 16, 2012, at Wilson Memorial Hospital, Sidney.

Adopted Ohio home marks Demjanjuk’s ‘ultimate finality’ SEVEN HILLS (AP) — In his adopted home in Ohio, the death of convicted Nazi war criminal John Demjanjuk was marked as “the ultimate finality” for a man whose comfortable suburban life in the U.S. was wrenched by decades of murderous allegations. Demjanjuk, 91, who died Saturday in Germany, was convicted in May 2011 of 28,060 counts of being an accessory to murder at the Nazis’ Sobibor death camp and sentenced to five years in prison. The Ukraine-born Demjanjuk was a retired U.S. autoworker who maintained over three decades of legal battles that he had been mistaken for someone else. Zev Harel, 82, a Holocaust survivor who watched the case play out in the courts in Cleveland, would only venture that Demjanjuk’s later life reflected his service in the Nazi era. “He has the kind of experiences that people that are doing wrong experience,” Harel said. Harel said he felt bad for Demjanjuk’s family and

BERLIN (AP) — John Demjanjuk was convicted of being a low-ranking guard at the Sobibor death camp, but his 35-year fight on three continents to clear his name — a legal battle that had not yet ended when he died Saturday at age 91 — made him one of the bestknown faces of Nazi prosecutions. The conviction of the retired Ohio autoworker in a Munich court in May 2011 on 28,060 counts of being an accessory to murder, which was still being appealed, broke new legal ground in Germany as the first time someone was convicted solely on the basis of serving as a camp guard, with no evidence of involvement in a specific killing. It has opened the floodgates to hundreds of new investigations in Germany, though his death serves as a reminder that time is running out for prosecutors. Ukrainian-born Demjanjuk steadfastly maintained that he had been mistaken for someone else, first wounded as a Soviet soldier fighting German forces, then captured and held as a prisoner of war under brutal conditions. And he is probably best known as someone he was not: the notoriously brutal guard “Ivan the Terrible” at the Treblinka extermination camp. That was the first accusation against him, which led to him being extradited from the U.S. to Israel in the 1980s. He was tried, convicted, and sentenced to death only to have the Israeli Supreme Court unanimously overturn the verdict and return him to the U.S. after it received evidence that another Ukrainian, not Demjanjuk, was that Nazi guard. “He has become at least one of the faces” of the

Supreme Court set to hear health care debate Justices will weigh making health coverage a fact of life WASHINGTON (AP) — Death, taxes and now health insurance? Having a medical plan or else paying a fine is about to become another certainty of American life, unless the Supreme Court says no. People are split over the of President wisdom Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, but they are nearly united against its requirement that everybody have insurance. The mandate is intensely unpopular, even though more than 8 in 10 people in the United States already are covered by workplace plans or government programs such as Medicare. When the insurance obligation kicks in, not even two years from now, most people won’t need to worry or buy anything new. Nonetheless, Americans don’t like being told how to spend their money, not even if it would help solve the problem of the nation’s more than 50 million uninsured. Can the government really tell us what to buy? Federal judges have come down on both sides of the question, leaving it to the Supreme Court to sort out. The justices are allotting an unusually long period, six hours over three days, beginning March 26, to hear arguments challenging the law’s constitutionality. Their ruling, expected in June, is shaping up as a historic moment in the century-long quest by reformers to provide affordable health care for all. Many critics and supporters alike see the insurance requirement as the linchpin of Obama’s health care law: Take away the mandate and the wheels fall off. Politically it was a wob-

It seems half of Washington has flipflopped over mandating insurance. One critic dismissed the idea this way: “If things were that easy, I could mandate everybody to buy a house and that would solve the problem of homelessness.” That was Obama as a presidential candidate, who was against health insurance mandates before he was for them. Once elected, Obama decided a mandate could work as part of a plan that helps keep premiums down and assists those who can’t afford them. To hear Republicans rail against this attack on personal freedom, you’d never know the idea came from them. Its model was a

Massachusetts law signed in 2006 by Mitt Romney, now the front-runner of the Republican presidential race, when he was governor. Another GOP hopeful, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, supported a mandate on individuals as an alternative to President Bill Clinton’s health care proposal, which put the burden on employers. All four GOP presidential candidates now promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which they call “Obamacare.” Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum calls it “the death knell for freedom.” So much for compromise. Obama and congressional Democrats pushed the mandate through in 2010, without Republican support, in hopes of creating a fair system that ensures

But what inspires them to converge in protest is less the law itself than what it has come to represent to a lot of people: Big government at its worst.

everyone, rich or poor, young or old, can get the health care they need. Other economically advanced countries have done it. Doing nothing is more expensive than most people realize. Congress found that when the uninsured go to clinics and emergency rooms, the care they can’t pay for costs nearly $75 billion a year. Much of that cost is passed along and ends up adding $1,000 a year to the average family’s insurance premium. The overhaul is neither the liberal dream of a single government program supported by taxes and covering everyone nor the conservative vision of stripping away federal rules and putting free enterprise in charge.

The Obama plan relies on private companies plus lots of regulation to make sure they provide basic benefits, keep premiums reasonable, and cover the sick as well as the healthy. That’s where the mandate comes in. If insurers must cover everyone, even those with existing medical conditions, healthy people have little incentive to sign up before they get sick. Insurance companies argue that if only the sick sign up, insurers will go broke. So the law says everybody must have insurance for themselves and their children, or pay a penalty. Also, because everyone needs health care sometime, if everyone purchases insurance, the price per person can be lower, with the cost of care spread out over many people. After all, the government requires workers to pay Social Security and Medicare taxes, whether they want the benefits or not. One argument for the insurance mandate is that the fines are just federal taxes by another name. Another is that it falls under the government’s constitutional power to regulate commerce that crosses state borders. State governments, of course, tell people to buy lots of things, including auto insurance or motorcycle helmets. “You can always move to another state,” said Tom O’Connor, a consultant in Fairfax, Va., who thinks the health care law overreaches. “It’s a little more difficult to move to another country.” Many agree. In an Associated PressGfK poll, 85 percent said the U.S. government should

not have the power to require people to buy health insurance. When the question is worded without the specific reference to federal power, acceptance of the mandate grows a bit, but 6 in 10 are still against it. Even among those who generally support the health care overhaul, onethird said they are against the insurance mandate. There’s also a significant minority who sees mandates as a cop-out and prefer a government program that covers everyone, Medicare for all. It’s clear that many people do not understand what the law would do or how it would affect them. Jan Gonzales, an out-ofwork bookkeeper in Pablo, Mont., calls fining people for going without insurance “the most ridiculous, asinine thing you ever heard of.” “If I can’t put food on the table for my children, how can I pay for health care coverage?” asks Gonzales, who’s been without insurance for seven years. “What moron came up with that idea?” Of course, she might qualify for the law’s exemptions for those too poor to pay and for assistance for low-income people, as well as many in the middle class.

“It is the epitome of being in my face and telling me what I can and can’t do for the rest of my life,” says Christine Gates, the North Carolina mom. “What’s next? They gonna tell you you can’t wear a black T-shirt?” says Carlos Hernandez, the Massachusetts veteran. “With Bush is when I became more and more aware of the fact that government was spending more and requiring more … when Obama took over, it went from second or third gear to fifth or sixth gear,” says Michael Mancha, the private investigator in Georgia. His wife, Elizabeth, feels the health care law “truly exemplifies how out of control the federal government has gotten. It’s the big trophy on the mantle.” These are more than just rants from the anti-Obama crowd, but rather a sampling of the national conversation underlying so much of the angst among voters this election year from Occupy protesters who rail not just against Wall Street but for the idea that “we don’t need politicians to build a better society” to tea partiers who carry pocket copies of the Constitution and espouse the principle of “constitutionally limited government.” Americans, Republicans and Democrats alike, are asking some fundamental questions about the state of the union that go beyond how to grow the economy, add jobs, lower fuel prices and curb foreclosures. Among the most profound: What is and perhaps should be the role of government in our lives? That many Americans believe government, the federal government in particular, has grown too big and powerful is hardly an earthshattering revelation. It is one of the very reasons the tea party was born. Why

debates over bailouts, stimulus packages and the national deficit have intensified. Why state legislatures are pushing back against congressional regulations. Why the champion of libertarianism, GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul, draws dedicated followers who cheer his proposals to end the Federal Reserve, repeal the federal income tax and abolish the Internal Revenue Service (along with the federal departments of Commerce, Education, Energy and more). And why more than two dozen states sued over the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. A December Gallup poll showed Americans’ fear of big government has reached near-record levels, with 64 percent deeming it a bigger threat to the country than big business or big labor. Driving the increase was a rise in the percentage of Democrats who view the government as ever-more threatening. “I think more and more people across the political spectrum are saying, ‘Whoa. We don’t want these people having this kind of power,’” says Michael Boldin, executive director of the Tenth Amendment Center, a think-tank that supports limited government. “‘Obamacare’ is the symbol for conservatives. Things like the NDAA” the National Defense Authorization Act, which was signed into law in December and could allow for the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens suspected of terrorism “are now becoming a symbol across the political spectrum.” “The way we see it is no matter what political party’s been in power for probably a hundred years now … government keeps growing. And people can protest, vote the bums out, or sue in court. It keeps happening.”

Occupy Wall Street celebrates six-month mark NEW YORK (AP) — Chanting and cheering down Wall Street on Saturday to mark six months since the birth of the Occupy movement, some protesters applauded the Goldman Sachs employee who days ago gave the firm a public drubbing, echoing the movement’s indictment of a financial system demonstrators say is fueled by reckless greed. “I kind of like to think that the Occupy movement helped him to say, ‘Yeah, I really can’t do this anymore,’” retired librarian Connie Bartusis said of the op-ed piece by Goldman Sachs manager Greg Smith, who claimed the company regularly foisted failing products on clients as it sought to make more money. Carrying a sign with the words “Regulate Regulate Regulate,” Bartusis said the loss of governmental checks on the financial system helped create the climate of unfettered self-interest described by Smith in his piece, although Goldman’s leadership suggested he


Occupy Wall Street demonstrators march near Zuccotti Park on Saturday, in New York. With the city’s attention focused on the huge St. Patrick’s Day Parade many blocks uptown, the Occupy rally at Zuccotti Park on Saturday drew a far smaller crowd than the demonstrations seen in the city when the movement was at its peak in the fall. A couple hundred people attended. had not portrayed the bank’s culture accurately. “Greed is a very powerful force,” Bartusis said. “That’s what got us in trouble.” On Saturday, six months

after the protesters first took over Zuccotti Park near the city’s financial district, the protesters gathered there again, drawing slogans in chalk on the pavement and waving flags

as they marched through lower Manhattan. With the city’s attention focused on the huge St. Patrick’s Day parade many blocks uptown, the Occupy rally at Zuccotti drew hun-

dreds of people, with many gathering in the park into the evening hours. With the barricades that once blocked them from Wall Street now removed, the protesters streamed down the sidewalk and covered the steps of the Federal Hall National Memorial. There, steps from the New York Stock Exchange and standing at the feet of a statue of George Washington, they danced and chanted, “We are unstoppable.” Police say arrests had been made, but they don’t have a full count yet. As always, the protesters focused on a variety of concerns, but for Tom Hagan, his sights were on the giants of finance. “Wall Street did some terrible things, especially Goldman Sachs, but all of them. Everyone from the banks to the rating agencies, they all knew they were doing wrong. … But they did it anyway. Because the money was too big,” he said. Dressed in an outfit that might have been more appropriate for the St.

Patrick’s Day parade, the 61-year-old salesman wore a green shamrock cap and carried a sign asking for saintly intervention: “St. Patrick: Drive the snakes out of Wall Street.” He, too, praised Smith’s editorial and said it came just as the Occupy movement is again gaining ground. It was a sentiment echoed by others. Stacy Hessler held up a cardboard sign that read, “Spring is coming,” a reference, she said, both to the Arab Spring and to the warm weather that is returning to New York City. She said she believes the nicer weather will bring the crowds back to Occupy protests, where numbers have dwindled in recent months since the group’s encampment was ousted from Zuccotti Park by authorities in November. But now, “more and more people are coming out,” said the 39-year-old, who left her home in Florida in October to join the Manhattan protesters and stayed through much of the winter. “The next couple of months, things are going to start to grow, like the flowers.”

In this Aug. 23, 2011, Defense Video & Imagery Distribution System photo, Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, right, participates in an exercise at the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Calif. Five days after an attack on Afghan villagers killed 16 civilians, a senior U.S. official identified the shooter in that attack as Bales. The man at left is unidentified. His former platoon leader said Saturday Bales was a model soldier inspired by 9/11 to serve who saved lives in firefights on his second of three Iraq missions. “He’s one of the best guys I ever worked with,” said Army Capt. Chris Alexander, who led Bales on a 15-month deployment in Iraq. “He is not some psychopath. He’s an outstanding soldier who has given a lot for this country.” But pressing family troubles were hinted at by his wife, Kari, on multiple blogs posted with names like The Bales Family Adventures and BabyBales. A year ago, she wrote that Bales was hoping for a promotion or a transfer after nine years stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord outside Tacoma, Wash. “We are hoping to have as much control as possible” over the future, Kari Bales wrote last March 25. “Who knows where we will end up. I just hope that we are able to rent our house so that we can keep it. I think we are both still in shock.” After Bales lost out on a promotion to E7 a firstclass sergeant the family hoped to go to either Germany, Italy or Hawaii for an “adventure,” she said. They hoped to move by last summer; instead the Army redeployed his unit the 2nd Infantry Division of the 3rd Stryker Brigade, named after armored Stryker vehicles to


Afghanistan. It would be Bales’ fourth tour in a war zone. He joined the military two months after 9/11 and spent more than three years in Iraq during three separate assignments since 2003. His attorney said he was injured twice in Iraq once losing part of his foot but his 20 or so commendations do not include the Purple Heart, given to soldiers wounded in combat. Alexander said Bales wasn’t injured while he oversaw him during their deployment Bales’ second in Iraq. He called Bales a “very solid” officer who didn’t have more difficulty than his fellow soldiers with battlefield stress. Bales shot at a man aiming a rocket-propelled grenade at his platoon’s vehicle in Mosul, Iraq, sending the grenade flying over the vehicle. “There’s no doubt he saved lives that day,” Alexander said. The charges he killed civilians is “100 percent out of character for him,” he said. Bales always loved the military and war history, even as a teenager, said Berling, who played football with him in the early 1990s on a team that included Marc Edwards, a future NFL player and Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots. “I remember him and the teacher just going back and forth on something like talking about the details of the Battle of Bunker Hill,” he said. “He knew history, all the wars.”

Santorum then headed to Illinois Saturday afternoon, where he went on the attack against Romney. “If you want to know where Mitt Romney’s going to be, just watch the Weather Channel,” Santorum said in a high school gymnasium in the town of Herrin. Romney campaigned Saturday morning with Puerto Rican Gov. Luis Fortuno, shopping for tropical fruit and meeting with voters a day after a massive, energetic rally in San Juan celebrated his arrival here. “It was Ronald Reagan who very famously in our party said that it was important for the people of Puerto Rico to have the choice to become a state, and if the people of Puerto Rico choose that path, I will be happy to lead that effort in Washington,” Romney said after the crowd began chanting “Statehood now! Statehood now!”

LAKE TAPPS, Wash. (AP) — Bypassed for a promotion and struggling to pay for his house, Robert Bales was eyeing a way out of his job at a Washington state military base months before he allegedly gunned down 16 civilians in an Afghan war zone, records and interviews showed as a deeper picture emerged Saturday of the Army sergeant’s financial troubles and brushes with the law. While Bales, 38, sat in an isolated cell at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.’s military prison Saturday, classmates and neighbors from suburban Cincinnati remembered him as a “happy-go-lucky” high school football player who took care of a special needs child and watched out for troublemakers in the neighborhood. But court records and interviews show that the 11year veteran with a string of commendations for good conduct after four tours in Iraq and Afghanistan had joined the Army after a Florida investment job went sour, had a Seattle-area home condemned, struggled to make payments on another and failed to get a promotion or a transfer a year ago. His legal troubles included charges that he assaulted a girlfriend and, in a hit-and run accident, ran bleeding in military clothes into the woods, court records show. He told police he fell asleep at the wheel and paid a fine to get the charges dismissed, the records show. Military officials say that after drinking on a southern Afghanistan base, Bales crept away on March 11 to two slumbering villages overnight, shooting his victims and setting many of them on fire. Nine of the 16 killed were children and 11 belonged to one family. “This is some crazy stuff if it’s true,” Steve Berling, a high school classmate, said of the revelations about the father of two known as “Bobby” in his hometown of Norwood. Bales hasn’t been charged yet in the shootings, which have endangered complicated relations between the U.S. and Afghanistan and threatened to upend U.S. policy over the decade-old war.

BAYAMON, Puerto Rico (AP) — Looking toward the critical primary in Illinois, Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney wrapped up a shortened campaign trip to Puerto Rico on Saturday as he prepared for more tough contests against chief rival Rick Santorum. The former Massachusetts governor dramatically curtailed his trip to the U.S. territory, which holds its primary today, in favor of spending more time in Illinois, where polls have shown him slightly ahead of Santorum. Romney had planned to spend the weekend and visit a polling place today, but instead left the island immediately after a morning appearance. Santorum left Puerto Rico earlier this week and spent the morning in Missouri, where he already won a primary that awarded no delegates. Missouri Republicans were meeting in county caucuses Saturday, the first step toward choosing delegates to the national con-

Rocket’s 50-game winning streak ends Anna loses title game in OT COLUMBUS (AP) — Kiyanna Black brushed off the frenetic atmosphere of the girls Division III championship game on Saturday, scoring 27 points, including the first four of overtime to give Columbus Africentric the lead for good, as the Nubians defeated unbeaten

Anna 70-66. “A regular day on the court. That’s how I treated it,” Black said. She also had 12 rebounds and six assists. “She put it on her shoulders and carried them,” Anna coach Jack Billing said. Africentric (23-4) also won

Division IV titles in 2007 and 2009. Anna (27-1) saw its 50-game winning streak end, although the Rockets put up a fight; rallying from six behind in the final 35 seconds of regulation then cutting an eight-point overtime deficit to 68-66.

Exceeding her goals Accurso sets bar high at OU BY ROB KISER Ohio Community Media It’s safe to say Juli Accurso has erased the question mark — and raised the bar for her final two seasons running cross country and track at Ohio University after a breakout sophomore year. The former Miami East state track champion followed up an All-American season in cross country in the fall by smashing several school records during the indoor track season, including running a time in the 5K unparalleled in history by any female Ohio college runner. She once again finished the season at nationals, earning second team All-American honors in the 5K with a 12th-place finish.


Boston on Thursday. “We didn’t shoot the ball particularly well in the second half, but we knocked the shots down. And everybody made a big shot here and there,” Ohio State coach Thad Matta said. It’s what the Buckeyes do. When Sullinger spent the last 9:12 of the first half on the bench with two fouls, the Buckeyes relied on Craft and Thomas to erase a seven-point deficit. Then, with the Bulldogs surging after wiping out a 10point Ohio State lead, the

“I know I have told this story before, but when I came here as a freshman, the coaches had us write down all our g o a l s , ” Accurso said in a phone ACCURSO i n t e r v i e w. “The highest goal I put down was nationals — and I had a question mark because I wasn’t sure that was obtainable.” She far exceeded that this year. And after a cross country season that saw her win the MAC title and earn All-American honors at nationals, her indoor track season got off to a scary start. “I had a minor injury at the start of the season,” Accurso said. “It was just something where I couldn’t run for a couple days. But for a runner, that is a big thing. I was freaking out a little bit. It was like,’Oh my gosh what am I going to do.’ “But my coach calmed me down. He told me, ‘Juli, you are fine, you are right where you need to be.’” And it didn’t take long for the results to come. In her first 5K of the season, she smashed the OU school record at the Husky Invitational in Seattle, running a 16:05.59. It was almost 17 seconds faster than anyone from OU had ever run the race. Prior to that, she had broken the school record in the 3K by almost 11 seconds, running a 9:21.89. That time was also a MAC record and put her in the top 50 nationally. It was also took

Sullinger keeps cool, leads OSU to victory PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jared Sullinger doesn’t get mad anymore. Those days are over. The Ohio State sophomore forward knows he can’t afford to lose his temper if the Buckeyes want to reach the Final Four. So rather than sulk after foul trouble and some solid Gonzaga defense frustrated him for 36 minutes Saturday, the quickly maturing big man relaxed, took a deep breath and hoisted the Buckeyes on his broad shoulders. Sullinger scored 18 points, including two big baskets on soft hook shots in the final 3 minutes to lead Ohio State to a 73-

66 victory and a spot in the regional semifinals for the third straight year. “I knew that throwing my body and creating contact wasn’t going to work in this game,” he said. “So I kind of just went with a little bit of finesse and just tried to get off-the-body contact and try to go up and finish.” And finish off the original bracket busters in the process. DeShaun Thomas also scored 18 for the second-seeded Buckeyes (29-7), while Aaron Craft added 17 points and 10 assists. Ohio State will play Florida State or Cincinnati in

Buckeyes ■ CONTINUED FROM A8 Buckeyes went back to basics. They went back to Sullinger, though such measures hardly seemed necessary after a putback by Thomas gave the Buckeyes a 58-48 lead. The Bulldogs (26-7) responded with a 13-3 run capped by a 3-pointer from the corner by Harris that tied it at 61 with 4:05 to go. Then Sullinger, who still thinks about last year’s loss to Kentucky in the regional semifinals, took over. He backed down Gonzaga cen-

ter Robert Sacre and hit a soft little hook shot from the right block to put Ohio State back in front. “Right down the stretch we wanted to get the ball in his hands,” Matta said. “He’s a winner. We’ll ride that down the stretch.” Gary Bell Jr. led Gonzaga with 18 points and Harris added 16, but the Zags went cold down the stretch, coming up empty on five straight possessions after tying the game as Ohio State avoided becoming the third No. 2 seed to lose in less than 24 hours. Fellow

Tourney vet OU set to face USF NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — South Florida redshirt senior Ron Anderson Jr. is a bit of an aficionado of teams making unexpected runs deep into the NCAA tournament, and his personal favorite is VCU’s streak to the Final Four last season. Just don’t ask the forward to compare his 12thseeded Bulls to anyone else. “It’s kind of been our story the whole season that we’re going to have to keep on battling through adversity and create our own name,” Anderson said Saturday. “If we play great ball and make it to the Final Four, you want to make the comparisons, so be it. Cinderella or no Cinderella if people want to call it that, we’ll continue playing the same ball.” The Bulls started this season 7-7, and now one of the four teams to start the NCAA tournament early in Dayton will play its third game in five days Sunday night. A win would earn USF a trip to St. Louis on Friday against either top-seeded North Carolina or Creighton in the Midwest Regional semifinal. Not bad for a program in only its third NCAA tournament and first since 1992. Sophomore Victor Rudd Jr. said the Bulls’ phones have been lighting up after the first two NCAA wins USF has ever notched: first Cincinnati in Dayton,

then fifth-seeded Temple 58-44 on Friday night. South Florida cannot pull out the underdog card tonight. No. 13 seed Ohio (28-7) has won five straight, including an upset of fourth-seeded Michigan 65-60 to overshadow the Bulls’ own big win over Temple. The Bobcats have limited their focus to the Bulls and insist they are past their first win over Michigan. “We’re just trying to win one game at a time, move on,” Ohio junior guard D.J. Cooper said. “To be able to get to the next weekend, it would be great to make a good run. I don’t know, maybe two more games.” Ohio has much more NCAA tournament history than USF with this the Bobcats’ 13th appearance overall and second under coach John Groce. But the Bobcats haven’t won two games in the tournament since 1964, and they lost to Tennessee in 2010 after an upset of No. 3 Georgetown. Both these teams have coaches with plenty of postseason experience. Groce was an assistant to Thad Matta at Butler, Xavier and Ohio State. USF coach Stan Heath can trump that, winning a national title with Tom Izzo at Michigan State in 2000 before he took Kent State out of the MidAmerican Conference to a regional final. Heath also took Arkansas to two NCAA berths.

No. 15 Lehigh ready for Xavier GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — The Lehigh Mountain Hawks insist their work here isn’t done. They’re not ready to pack up and go home to Bethlehem, Pa., after pulling off one of the biggest upsets in NCAA tournament history by stunning national power and second-seeded Duke 75-70 in its own backyard Friday night. The Mountain Hawks want to stick around a little longer. After his team’s monumental upset, Lehigh coach Brett Reed asked his players in the locker room if they were satisfied and the collective response was no. The 15th-seeded Mountain Hawks, led by speedy guard C.J. McCollum the nation’s fifth-leading scorer, fully believed they could topple Duke and they said so publicly before the game. And they believe they can do the same to 10th-seeded Xavier on Sunday at the Greensboro Coliseum. “I’m not ready to end my career and (my teammates) aren’t ready to end what we created,” senior forward Jordan Hamilton said. Hamilton said it’s hard to compare this team to others from past NCAA tournaments. “We’re something that this tournament’s never really seen before,” Hamilton said. “I know people like to draw comparisons and try to categorize, but I really believe

that we’re our own unique team. “ McCollum, a two-time Patriot League player of the year, sees it a little differently. He thinks the Mountain Hawks are a little like the 2008 Davidson Wildcats, a No. 10 seed that shocked the country when they came up one win short of a trip to the Final Four. The Wildcats lost to eventual national champion Kansas in the regional finals. “We’re a little bit like them in terms of being a small school having a solid team, solid coaching staff and trying to make a run in the tournament,” McCollum said. So does that make McCollum Lehigh’s version of Stephen Curry? Before McCollum could answer that at Saturday’s press conference teammate Gabe Knutson jumped in to answer with a firm “Yes!” Just 5-foot-6 and admittedly a little pudgy his junior year of high school, McCollum received very little interest from Division I schools. But he had a late growth spurt and now, at 6-foot-3, has developed into one of the best players in the country. Prior to Friday’s game Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski said McCollum could play for an ACC team. A few hours later he proved he could beat one, too.

heavyweights Duke and Missouri fell to upstarts on Friday from one-bid leagues. Yet the Buckeyes knew the Bulldogs are hardly scrappy underdogs. They entered the game with 17 NCAA victories over the last 14 seasons, the same as the Buckeyes. The 18th will have to wait until next year at least, though coach Mark Few was hardly apologizing after taking the Buckeyes to the limit. “We went toe-to-toe with a really good team,” Few said. “Wouldn’t surprise me

if they are cutting down the nets in New Orleans.” It’s a glass ceiling the Bulldogs have been trying to break through since making the regional finals in 1999. Their best chance of returning to the round of 16 came on Kevin Pangos’ 3-point attempt from the right corner with 90 seconds to play. The ball went halfway down before rolling off and into the hands of Ohio State’s William Buford. Sullinger again delivered with a baby hook to push the Buckeyes’ lead to 66-61 with 57 seconds left.

Freshman Anthony Davis had 15 points and 12 rebounds, senior Darius Miller added 19 points and Doron Lamb finished with 16. The Wildcats (34-2) move on to South Regional semifinals in Atlanta and will face fourth-seeded Indiana on Friday. Royce White scored 23 points and had nine rebounds before fouling out with 4:32 left for Iowa State (23-11), which beat defending national champion Connecticut on Thursday night.

Rob Brandenberg got a great look at a potential winning 3-pointer but it rimmed off at the buzzer, ending the Rams’ bid for another surprising March run. Indiana advanced to the round of 16 for the first time in a decade and just four years after Tom Crean inherited a decimated program. The Hoosiers did it by rallying from down 5953 with 6 minutes remaining, including Victor Oladipo’s driving threepoint play with 46.5 seconds left that tied it at 61. Christian Watford led Indiana (27-8) with 16 points and Cody Zeller added 14. Sheehey finished with eight points; his game-winner was his only basket of the second half.

Rodney McGruder had 15 points for the Wildcats (22-11), who struggled from the field against Syracuse’s 2-3 zone defense. No. 4 Wisconsin 60, No. 5 Vanderbilt 57 ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Ryan Evans scored 11 points and grabbed a crucial rebound in the closing seconds. John Jenkins took a 3pointer that would have given the Commodores the lead, but it bounced high off the rim and Evans pulled down the rebound and was fouled with 2.1 seconds left. He made the first free throw to make it a three-

point game. After a Vanderbilt timeout, he missed the second and the Commodores called time with 1.3 seconds remaining. • West Region No. 3 Marquette 62, No. 6 Murray St. 53 LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Jae Crowder scored 12 of his 17 points in the second half, and Marquette used a late run to overcome Murray State. Trailing 46-41 with 7:43 to play, Marquette went on a 14-2 run. While Crowder and Davante Gardner took care of the offense, scoring all but two points during the spurt, the Golden Eagles used their size and strength to wear down the pesky Racers. Isaiah Canaan scored 16 for Murray State, (31-2) which is still looking to get out of the first weekend of the NCAA tournament. It’s the second time in three years Murray State has fallen short of the regional semifinals.

Bearcats prepping for FSU’s ‘D’ NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Cincinnati forward Yancy Gates sees a lot of good basketball in the Big East. When he watches Florida State, he sees a team that would fit right in. That’s not a knock on the Atlantic Coast Conference, and he’s not making a case for more realignment. It’s just that in a conference full of talented offensive teams, the Seminoles’ defensive style really stands out. “To me they were the best defensive team in the conference, which was why they were so successful this year,” Gates said. “So I think out of all those schools, Florida State would best fit

in with the Big East by the way the play. So we’ll just get prepared for this game as if we were getting prepared for (the Big East) conference.” Cincinnati (25-10) knows it won’t be easy getting by that defense that led Florida State (25-9) to its first ACC tournament championship a week ago. The sixth-seeded Bearcats and third-seeded Seminoles meet Sunday night in the third round of the NCAA tournament’s East Regional. The winner will face No. 2 seed Ohio State in Pittsburgh on Thursday in the round of 16. “They’re one of the top

five teams in America every year in field-goal percentage defense,” Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin said. “It’s going to be hard to get a basket against them. We’ve got to make sure we return the favor.” Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton thinks Cincinnati can mix it up on both offense and defense. The Bearcats are a guard-heavy team that can penetrate and get the ball inside to Gates as well as shoot mid-range jump shots and 3-pointers. They can easily adjust from man-toman defense to zone and the press to keep an opponent guessing.

“This is a multidimensional-type team that is most difficult for teams to match up against,” Hamilton said. Entering the tournament, the Seminoles were ranked sixth among Division I teams for their field-goal percentage defense. Their opponents hit just 38.1 percent of their shots and average 62.9 points per game. “They’re big, so we figure we can get out and get some easy buckets and play a transition game,” Cincinnati guard Dion Dixon said. “That will be major for us in this game compared to their size.”

Flyers grounded by Razorback ‘D’ late in 72-55 loss COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Dayton’s experience didn’t count for much against Arkansas’ swarming defense. Quistelle Williams scored 15 points, Keira Peak and Lyndsay Harris added 14 apiece, and the Razorbacks rallied from an early doubledigit deficit to defeat Dayton 72-55 on Saturday in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Andrea Hoover scored 16 and Justine Raterman added 14 for the No. 11seeded Flyers (23-7), who withered under the Razorbacks’ full-court pressure and missed their final 15 shots. “We kind of ran out of gas in the second half,” Dayton coach Jim Jabir said. Dayton was playing in its third consecutive NCAA tournament, while the Razorbacks (24-8) were making their first appearance since 2003. “It’s hard to look back on it right now,” senior forward Elle Queen said. “But it’s been great, and it’s a great bunch of people and it’s been fun to go through this process together.” C’eira Ricketts had 13 points and five assists for the sixth-seeded Razorbacks, who finished with a 20-2 run after trailing by as many as 14 in the first half. Dayton, which led the Atlantic 10 in scoring at 71 points per game, shot 24 percent from the field in the second half against the Razorbacks’ 10th-ranked scoring defense. “We were letting one mistake turn into two, turn into three,” Raterman said. “Those are the times we really had to buckle down, and we didn’t do that.” The Razorbacks were the ones having shooting problems at the start, missing 10 of their first 11 attempts. But they began attacking the basket to rally late in the first half. Sarah Watkins, Arkansas’ 6-foot-3 center, scored inside and converted a three-point play at the start of a 19-5 spurt. The speedy Peak drove for two layups during the run, and Ricketts’ free throws in the final minute before the break tied the game at 3535. The Flyers were stunned by how quickly the Razorbacks were able to come back. “I think it was one of those games where we made a few mistakes and we just let them compile on themselves,” senior center Casey Nance said. “They just kind of got magnified that way.” No. 3 Texas A&M 69, No. 14 Albany 47 Tyra White scored 18 points in her return from injury and defending national champion Texas A&M used a big second half run to pull away from Albany and win Saturday.

Peyton Manning worked out for Tennessee on Saturday in Knoxville, Titans general manager Ruston Webster said. The GM said he thought Manning “looked comfortable throwing the ball and we had a good visit.” “This is another important step in the process,” Webster said. Manning spent eight hours meeting with Tennessee executives on Wednesday. Webster was joined at Saturday’s workout by Titans head coach Mike Munchak, chief operating officer Mike Reinfeldt, offensive coordinator Chris Palmer, quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains and strength coach Steve Watterson, a person familiar with the session told The Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the team has not released details of the workout. Saturday was Manning’s third workout

for teams this week. On Friday, the fourtime NFL MVP worked out at Duke for Denver. Tuesday night he worked out at the Blue Devils’ facilities for San Francisco. Manning has been rehabbing in North Carolina following a string of neck surgeries. And the quarterback is getting good reviews.

It was a productive visit and went well.”

Goosen shares lead PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) — Retief Goosen felt so much pain in his lower back that he decided to pull out of next week’s tournament and get treatment. One day later, he found himself atop the leaderboard in the T r a n s i t i o n s Championship. Goosen ran off three straight birdies late in his round Saturday for a 6-under 65, giving him a share of the lead with Jim Furyk with more than just another PGA Tour victory at stake. Sunday is Goosen’s last chance to qualify for the Masters. Furyk, coming off his worst season since he was a rookie, hit a 6-iron to 3 feet for birdie on the par-3 15th hole and had the lead to himself until a three-putt bogey up a steep slope on the 18th.

He had a 66. • LPGA Founders Cup PHOENIX — Ai Miyazato birdied three straight holes on the back nine and finished with a 6-under 66 for a share of the lead with Yani Tseng in the LPGA Founders Cup.

■ Track and Field

Accurso ■ CONTINUED FROM A8 more than a minute of Accurso’s previous PR in the race. “It was pretty amazing,” Accurso said. “It was my first time running the 5K (in track) and my second or third time running the 3K.” But the best was yet to come, with an unbelievable 5K at the Wilson Invitational at Notre Dame. She was clocked in a Meyo track record of 15:58.69. According to an OU press release, that is the fastest time an Ohio college female runner has ever run

the race. “I wasn’t even aware of that,” Accurso said. That time got her to nationals in that event, after she had won the MAC in the 3K (9:33.46) and finished second in the mile (4:48.32). That was less than a second behind current MAC record holder Emma Kertesz of Toledo. “One of the amazing things about nationals is you are out there with some of the premier runners in the country,” she said. “Those are girls I used to just read about. I was just talking to one of my high

■ Major League Baseball

school teachers from Miami East this week about that (going from a small community to being one of the top runners in the country).” Accurso had high expectations going into the national meet in Idaho, but was disappointed with her time of 16:24.23 that gave her a 12th-place finish and second team All-American honors. But she made no excuses. “A lot of people were talking about the altitude and the banking of the track,” Accurso said. “But I don’t think that had any-

thing to do with it. It wasn’t the atmosphere (of being at a national meet). I just didn’t quite have it that day. My legs weren’t feeling the best.” And while the competitive side of her always wants more, Accurso can look back and feel good about what she accomplished. “Of course, I hope to get back to nationals next year,” she said. “But you never know. You need to appreciate it, because something like this may not happen again.” And while Accurso

would normally be preparing for the outdoor track season, this spring will be a little different. “I am red-shirting this spring,” she said. “I am going to France for my studies. How often does an opportunity like this come along?” Accurso plans to continue her training while in France to be ready for cross country season. “I will be running, I just won’t be running competitively,” she said. “I am supposed to be taking a little break right now (after the indoor season), which I

am.” As the defending MAC champion, Accurso knows there may be a target on her back next fall. “I never really thought of myself in that way, but I suppose some of the runners in the MAC will be looking at me,” Accurso said with a laugh. “I think that was one of the good things about this year. I don’t think anybody was really aware of me.” They are now — both in the MAC and nationally — as Accurso’s performance erased all questions about that.

Blood in the water Sadler wins 2nd race in 3 weeks, developing taste for victory


Cincinnati Reds’ Zack Cozart hits a three-run triple off of Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez in the third inning of a spring training game Saturday in Goodyear, Ariz.

Reds-Indians ■ CONTINUED FROM A8 He left with the bases loaded and Zack Cozart hit a triple off reliever Tony Sipp to make it 6-1. Cozart tripled twice. Chris Valaika added two hits and two RBIs. “Cozart had a good day; Valaika had a good day,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “A lot of our guys had a good day. It was right on time.” Acta is hopeful that Jimenez be in sync in time for the season’s start. In 9 2-3 innings over four spring starts, the right-hander has allowed 15 hits, walked nine and has a 9.31 ERA. “Ubaldo had very little command of anything,” Acta said. “It took him 80some pitches to get threeplus innings. He’s just not making pitches. Hopefully it is out of him.” Jimenez said he was not discouraged. “I had a good changeup, threw some good sliders,” said Jimenez, counted on by the Indians to be a major contributor. Cleveland traded four prospects, including former first-round draft picks Alex White and Drew Pomeranz, to Colorado for the former

NL All-Star at last year’s trading deadline. “As a pitcher, you don’t want to let anybody score, but you are trying to work on your pitches,” Jimenez said. “I am trying to be more consistent. Hopefully, they are scoring all their runs here. “I never seem to do well in spring training,” he said. “Last year, I got hurt. I just want to get out of here healthy this year.” Cincinnati starter Bronson Arroyo gave up one run over three innings. “It didn’t feel like the ball was coming out of my hand as good but they had some late swings,” Arroyo said. “I got the cutter to move more of the way I wanted it to. “Even in spring training, it’s nice to have a good day so that everybody feels good about what we’re doing, the players, the front office,” Arroyo added. Arroyo went to the bullpen and threw 17 more pitches for a total of 67 and feels ready to go longer in games. “From here on out, it will be like the regular season, five, six or seven innings,” Arroyo said.

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Elliott Sadler went 14 years without a victory in the Nationwide Series. Now, he has two in the last three weeks. Sadler picked up his second victory of the season Saturday when his crew chief left him out on the track on old tires during the final caution at Bristol Motor Speedway. The call put Sadler in the lead on the final restart, with 28 laps remaining, and he easily held off Kasey Kahne and Brad Keselowski. Prior to his win two weeks ago at Phoenix, Sadler had not won in the Nationwide Series since Oct. 31, 1998, at Rockingham. That also was the last season he won multiple races in the Nationwide Series, and the year he scored his only other win at Bristol in the second-tier series. “To win two of the first four races is awesome, and we’ve got to keep adding to them. There’s blood in the water,” said Sadler, the Nationwide Series points leader. “After what I’ve been through the last couple of years in racing, this damn sure feels good.” Sadler raced to his first career Sprint Cup victory at Bristol in 2001, when he stayed out on old tires and pulled off an improbable victory. Crew chief Luke Lambert was a senior in high school watching that 2001 race from the grandstands, and decided Saturday to borrow that strategy. Kyle Busch brought out the final caution of the race with 38 laps to go, and most everyone headed to the pits. Lambert left Sadler on the track, even as Sadler protested the decision. “That was a great call by Luke. He reminded me I won a race here in 2001 by doing the same thing, staying out,” Sadler said. “I wanted this one worse than anything because I love this race track so much.”


Elliott Sadler celebrates in victory lane after winning the NASCAR Nationwide Series 300 race on Saturday in Bristol, Tenn. Kahne finished second and was followed by Brad Keselowski, who praised Sadler’s Richard Childress Racing car. “I am sure a lot of people will make a lot about Elliott staying out there, but he had a fast car,” Keselowski said. “He drove by me under green there, right before the yellow came out, and I think he was legitimately running the fastest lap times. “He had a fast car. You can’t say he won that in strategy in my mind. He’s been doing a good job.” Kahne, who was teammates with Sadler in the Cup Series, said Sadler is driving with a renewed confidence. “I watch Elliott right now, and I see him, he’s as happy as he’s been,” Kahne said. “He’s a good racer and right now he has a lot of confidence and a lot of momentum. He’s walking around smiling, and he’s confident with his car and his team. “I am happy for him. I am glad he’s running well. He ran great last year in

the Nationwide Series and I think he’s doing a good job this year. Off to a couple wins early. I think he’ll get a shot to run some more Cup races as time goes on.” Sadler, who ran 12 full seasons in Cup and made the Chase for the championship in 2004, ran the season-opening Daytona 500 for RCR. Michael Waltrip Racing then announced a limited deal for Sadler to drive the Cup races Mark Martin sits out, but the plug was pulled on that shortly after his win at Phoenix marked him as a strong Nationwide title contender. Sadler ran for the Nationwide title last season, but went winless and finished second to Ricky Stenhouse Jr. of Roush Fenway Racing in the final standings. Stenhouse led 41 laps late, but lost the lead on the final caution and finished sixth. He trails Sadler by 25 points in the standings. Joey Logano led a race high 119 laps and finished

fourth, while Dale Earnhardt Jr. was fifth. Justin Allgaier was seventh and was followed by Trevor Bayne, Kevin Harvick and Ryan Truex. Bayne was a late addition to the race, added midweek after RFR officials decided not to pull him because of a lack of sponsorship. Bayne, who is ranked third in the series standings, believes team owner Jack Roush is sending him to California next week despite a lack of sponsor. “Jack’s got two stout teams here running hard, and two drivers that are hopefully the future for his company,” Bayne said. “That is what we want to be. Ricky and I push each other hard and we did both lead laps and hopefully he is proud of that.” All four Nationwide races this season have been won by drivers who don’t compete in the elite Sprint Cup Series. It marks the first time since 1995 Cup drivers have been shut out over the first month of the season.

■ Horse Racing/Entertainment

Too real for TV: HBO cancels ‘Luck’ after horse deaths LOS ANGELES (AP) — Horse racing has long withstood the deaths of its skittish, injury-prone thoroughbreds. Hollywood proved it lacks the stomach for it. HBO abruptly cancelled its racetrack drama series “Luck” this past week after three horses used in the production were injured and euthanized during 10 months of filming in the last two years. The abrupt fall of “Luck,” which will end its single-season run on March 25, reveals the chasm between the racing and entertainment industries. At the track, a horse puts its life on the line so gamblers can stake $2 or more to win, place or show, with the industry and fans accepting the danger to animals and jockeys as a harsh part of the bargain. With movies and TV,

which offer the on-screen vow that “no animals were harmed” in the making of make-believe, consumers have scant tolerance for harm to any creature great or small. “More people are pet owners than ever before. More people have access to information about animals … and care more about them,” said Karen Rosas, senior vice president of the American Humane Association’s TV and film unit that monitors animal safety for more than 2,000 productions annually. During the past five years, the association encountered only one horse death outside of “Luck,” on the 2007 movie “3:10 to Yuma,” Rosas said. Losing three horses on a single project was “unprecedented,” she added. The racing world stands

in sharp contrast in both the measure of loss and reaction to it. Two horses died in Britain’s Grand National steeplechase meet last year, and four the year before, but the April event will proceed as it has since the 1830s. The 2008 Kentucky Derby euthanasia of a captivating filly, Eight Belles, clouded but didn’t derail the event that marks its 137th running in May. Last week, five horses died in the first two days of the U.K.’s Cheltenham Festival steeplechase. Outrage erupted, as it had after previous multiple deaths in the prestigious meet, but it’s yet to be scuttled. In U.S. racing, there’s approximately one horse fatality per 500 starts, according to Dr. Rick Arthur, medical director of

the California Horse Racing Board. He cited the Equine Industry Database posted online by The Jockey Club, which supports thoroughbred breeding and racing. ”Luck” filmed some 2,500 racing sequences, most a few slow, staged furlongs rather than all-out contests, Arthur said, citing estimated figures from HBO. Two thoroughbreds were put down after suffering fractures while running. The third was euthanized for a head injury suffered when the horse slipped and toppled backward, an accident experts said isn’t uncommon for the fragile, high-strung animals that weigh about 1,200 pounds. The losses provoked public dismay, along with pro and con debate about racing itself.

“I am usually an admirer of both HBO and (series creator) David Milch, but from the sounds of it, this is a tragedy that should have been avoided. Animals are not props,” actor Sean Vincent Biggins of Los Angeles posted Friday on his Facebook page. Thoroughbred experts and those in racing say their acceptance of mortality in racing stems from an understanding of the animals powering the sport. “You don’t force a racehorse to race. They love running,” said Dr. Larry Bramlage of Lexington, Ky., a nationally prominent equine veterinarian with 37 years’ experience. “If you came to where I am right now, with all the yearlings in the field, you’d see them out there trying to prove who runs the best.” Richard Mandella — a

Hall of Fame trainer at Santa Anita Park, the sprawling, historic track in the Los Angeles suburb of Arcadia where “Luck” was filmed — said “a love affair” exists between the people and horses in racing. But even hard work and “extreme efforts” can’t protect the animals, he said. “As far as accidents happening … I don’t care if they’re in a prairie or anywhere, that can happen,” Mandella said. “They play rough and they’re competitive.” What happened to the HBO show, he suggested, could have been a run of sad misfortune. ”Luck” was the kind of high-profile project that the premium TV channel bases its reputation on, with industry heavyweights in front of and behind the camera.

Bill Marriott reflects on career of innovations BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Bill Marriott has revolutionized the hotel business over the past four decades. As CEO of the company that bears his family’s name, Marriott led the industry in opening hotels next door to highway exits and suburban office parks. He was also a pioneer in catering to niche markets. In 1983, he launched Courtyard, a chain for cost-conscious business travelers. Today, Marriott has 18 brands, including Fairfield Inn for budget travelers and RitzCarlton for the luxury set. But perhaps Marriott’s biggest innovation was his decision to transform the company into one that manages but does not own its properties. That left the company a steady stream of revenue but little exposure to fluctuating real estate values and vacancy rates. Marriott turns 80 on March 25 and plans to step down as CEO at the end of the month. But this is no ordinary retirement. He’ll remain chairman of Marriott’s board of directors and will have considerable power over the company through his 10 percent equity stake, which is worth $1.2 billion. Marriott will spend more time on vacation, yet he plans to work 45 to 50 hours a week when home

The theme of this year’s National Athletic Training Month in March is “Athletic Trainers Save Lives.” The National Athletic Trainer’s Association recognizes this and emphasizes the medical components of the athletic training profession and the variety of athletic training settings. The goal of any athletic trainer is to enhance the quality of health of athletes and those who engage in physical activity within the community. Their ultimate goal is injury prevention. Each certified athletic trainer (ATC) at the UVMC Center for Sports Medicine also is licensed by the state of Ohio (LAT) and works with area schools to provide injury care and prevention, onfield evaluations and education to coaches and athletes. Annette Bair, MS, is the athletic trainer at Miami East High School; Stephanie Burdette, MEd, athletic trainer at Edison Community College and assistant athletic trainer at Piqua High School; Amanda Ingold, MS, athletic trainer at Bradford and Newton high schools; Mark Houle, MEd, athletic trainer at Covington High School; Ryan Ingley, BS, athletic trainer at Milton-Union High School; Joyce Kastl, MA, athletic trainer at Graham High School; Corinne Lyons, MA, lead athletic trainer for the UVMC Center for Sports Medicine and Russia High School; Tiffany Rhoades, BS, assistant

MIAMI COUNTY athletic trainer at Troy High School; Aaron Schlotterbeck, MBA, athletic trainer at Tippecanoe High School; Christine Campo, BS, athletic trainer at Troy Christian High School; Brian Edwards, MS; Gretchen Giacomo, MS; and Amee Rose, BS, pool athletic trainer at the Center for Sports Medicine. Athletic training services are extended to several community events such as the Troy Strawberry Festival Soccer Tournament, Jeff Warrick Poultry Days Ultimate Classic, Troy Classic on the Square, Mardi Gras Cheer and Dance and numerous other special events throughout the year. Athletic trainers provide OHSAA Wrestling Weight Certifications for area wrestlers, Ohio Department of Education Pupil Activity Validation Courses and CPR training for area interscholastic coaches. The Center for Sports Medicine also utilizes athletic trainers to assist and staff their summer Explosive Speed and Power (ESP) and Explosive Speed and Power Jr. (ESP Jr.) programs, as well as the Sportsmetrics knee injury prevention program. The UVMC Center for Sports Medicine is located at the Hyatt Center, 450 N. Hyatt St., Suite 102, Tipp City. For more information on programs offered, call (937) 440-7152 or (937) 667-2614.

Riverside of Miami County will celebrate its 60th year of serving residents of Miami County over the next several months.

Riverside is sharing its story Organization celebrates 60 years of service BY BETHANY J. ROYER Staff Writer Riverside of Miami County, serving more than 900 residents with developmental disabilities, is celebrating 60 years throughout 2012 via various opportunities and participation in such events as the Mum and Strawberry festivals, Ft. Rowdy Gathering and many others. This year-long event will give the service provider an opportunity to share its story from the beginnings of a grassroots movement in 1952 by parents wanting a school for their developmentally challenged children, to the transformation of being able to offer numerous programs and services today. No longer a primary source of education for children with disabilities, as schools assist these students in their own districts, many individuals may inquire as to what does Riverside provide and who do they serve? One of those answers is serving far more individuals today than at the height of its lone school operation, as Riverside serves not only children, but adults and seniors with disabilities, as explained by superintendent Karen Mayer. And while known for many years as Riverside School and now the Miami County Board of Developmental Disabilities operating under the name of Riverside, it assists families in early intervention with preschool or itinerant teaching programs, enrichment and Special Olympics, along with family and adult programs. The latter adult programs include RT Industries Inc., which began as a sheltered workshop before it became a production facility with a goal and focus on completing work. RT Industries has working relationships with various countywide businesses, such as Nitto Denko and Honda. “We have a job developer who goes out and tries to find jobs for us,” said Mayer who, along with community relations and staff development manager Terry Naas, spoke about the numerous companies with work available for those served by Riverside, or consumers. For children, early intervention may consist of staff working with families to assess their developmental delays and overcome challenges so they are able to catch up at a very early age. “They don’t need our services after that,” said Mayer of the 40 percent of at-risk, developmentally delayed kids assisted by Riverside who are then able to move on to a typical pre-


Riverside of Miami County conducted a bus rollover accident exercise at the school in April 2011. The scenario involved the removal of a driver and two consumers and allowed training for Riverside employees, Troy Fire Department and the Miami County Sheriff’s Office.

school — an unusual outcome considering a business such as Riverside generally services individuals from birth to death. “The really important thing for the community to know is that we offer a lifespan of services to people with developmental disabilities,” Naas said. She also spoke of the challenge to change the image of Riverside from that of a former school to a provider of multiple services for a wide range of age groups that includes assisting older individuals who face a mountain of challenges when their aging caregivers — typically parents — pass away. “They provide a home, insurance, food, clothing, all are provided by family,” said Naas, and that without a parent to provide such assistance Riverside must step in to advise or broker services over such seemingly simple situations as, “Where you want to live, can you read, can you shop, how are you going to get your hair cut, do you want to go to church, would you like to go to a movie and how can we help you arrange that with your per-

Riverside’s Service and Support Administration or SSA’s writes life plans for their consumers that takes into consideration not only the above issues but the wishes of those they serve. The philosophy has changed over time from being a “pilot” of their consumer’s life to being a “navigator” to help them reach goals and desires. This is done while

also being a good steward to the taxpayers’ money as 70 to 80 percent of its funding comes via local tax levies. “So we are constantly looking at how do we provide the services, is it cost effective?” said Mayer, as Riverside has reduced the number of positions and certain programs such as providing lunch and asking that consumers bring in their own, while outsourcing some therapies rather than having them in-house. “We’ve done a lot of hard work to try to be good stewards.” Mayer also stressed the good fortune of having a compassionate and highly dedicated staff who truly

care about the people they serve while Naas spoke on changing the mind-frame or perception toward those with a developmental disability by emphasizing a people-first language. “It’s not a blind person, where the adjective is in front of their name, they’re a person first, who happens to be blind,” explained Naas on the desire to put certain aspects into a positive light as opposed to having a “woeis-me” attitude. Rather than a person being wheelchairbound, they see wheelchairs as a freedom. “If it gets you around, why would you feel bound by it? I always say Aretha Franklin had it right, it was

March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month with this year’s theme: “Our Community is Better Together.” The second annual Riverside reunion will be April 20. Other activities will include participation in the Piqua Foundation’s Cakes for A Cause, a staff picnic this summer, a booth at the Miami County Fair and Friends for Riverside Chicken Dinner in the fall. There will be a Transition Expo with a date to be announced and a Run for Riverside hosted by the Miami East National Honor Society this month. People also can learn more about the programs and services provided by Riverside at its 2012 Community Connection over Coffee tours on the following dates: March 7 at 9:30 a.m., April 11 at 9:30 a.m., May 14 at 12:30 p.m., June 6 at 9:30 a.m., July 16 at 12:30 p.m., Aug. 8 at 9:30 a.m., Sept. 17 at 9:30 a.m., Oct. 10 at 12:30 p.m., Nov. 19 at 9:30 a.m. and Dec. 5 at 12:30 p.m.

R-E-S-P-E-C-T. How would you want to be referred to if you had a developmental disability? You would want to be a person first and there’s power in that,” Naas said.

Spring came early and is ‘wearin’ the green’ Birds are singing. Wildflowers are blooming. Fish are biting. Plus we’ve just enjoyed a balmy week with daytime temperatures in the mid-70s˚F. Not a bad way to wind-up winter! Moreover, we bona fide Irish yesterday granted all the world’s wannabes temporary citizenship so they might better join in on our annual “wearin’ o’ the green” celebration — though I expect many of you are now feeling the aftereffects of that brief admission into the fold. Hey, there’s more to being Irish than receiving a day-long naturalized pass! I will say that yesterday’s Saint Patrick’s Day was the greenest one in memory — and I’m not talking about green beer, green mashed potatoes, or a plate of that vile-looking green spaghetti I came across being served at a certain local pub a few years ago. What I’m instead referring to is the wealth of nature’s vernal green suddenly appearing everywhere. Pale green tips on the lilac buds. Rich green grass in the side yard and on the island

rial marker that officially designates the beginning of spring! Come on … weather like this in the winter portion of March in Ohio! Really? Not that the unseasonably warm weather, and spring’s month-early arrival isn’t welcome. I’ll take all I can get! And I don’t have to check my calendar and be assured our gently Jim McGuire tilting planet has just tipped us Troy Daily News Columnist below some invisible astronomical waypoint to bolster my belief across from the house. Deep in spring’s certainty. The charts green water in the pool in front may claim March 20th as the of the cottage … the very same official start — but my eyes and pool where last week I caught ears and heart know that spring the first smallmouth bass of the is here already! season, a 14-inch pound-and-aRobins now boisterously sing half jumper whose flanks reflect- in the dawn.

Harbinger-of-spring (pepper-andsalt) is also in flower. Blue violets have been around for some time. Dense clumps of purple dead nettle are parading up the edge of the driveway hill. But while they were not the earliest of the lot to bloom, my favorite wildflowers are the hepaticas I found in a deep woods the other morning. Hepaticas come in a variety of pastel shades, each soft and delicate. Their hues seem old-fashioned, like flower illustrations from a long-forgotten children’s book. For whatever reason the quaint colors somehow remind me of home-dyed Easter eggs. Yet I should also point out that sometimes a wildflower’s beauty comes at a price. You may have noticed in lowland woods and especially the shady floodplains along many area streams, that lesser celandine, Ranunculus ficaria, is everywhere spreading its invasive green carpet festooned with shiny yellow blooms. Though they might easily be mistaken for the quite similar but wellbehaved winter aconites, Eranthis hyamelis, which were

still flowering in much the same locations only a couple of weeks ago, lesser celandine is such a vigorous invader that the thickgrowing plants can actually shade out and displace many native species such as bloodroot, trout lily, wild ginger, trilliums, even Virginia bluebells. While poet William Wordsworth counted the lesser celandine among his favorite flowers, he didn’t know its bad side — its willingness to choke the life from countless other spring ephemerals, plants whose blooms are even more lovely, but whose nature is far less aggressive. For me, watching as they’ve increased exponentially over the past few years, and understanding their cost to spring’s landscape of so many beloved native species, the lesser celandine’s bright golden blooms have lost their pretty luster. Alas, not all change is good. But change is the single constant when it comes to time and season. And this year’s spring, with all it’s many genuine delights, has come early. For that we should all rejoice.

Interest spikes in Pinterest

PINTEREST • HOT NEW SITE: Pinterest attracts people who need to organize the chaos of Internet-age information overload. It serves as an online scrapbook of images they find on the Web, a place to post fashion inspirations, decorating aspirations and more. • FAST ASCENT: The site's popularity has exploded in recent months, making it one of the fastest-growing websites in history. It hit 10 million monthly visitors faster than Facebook, Twitter or any other site tracked by comScore. • DRIVEN BY WOMEN: Internet tracking firm comScore estimates that 68 percent of Pinterest users are women, and they drive 85 percent of the traffic on the site.

Women especially drawn to site’s layout, ease of use NEW YORK (AP) — Oh, you pretty things. Just look at the mama giraffe nuzzling a baby giraffe, that lovely idea for an indoor planter made of mason jars and those perfectly cooked bacon strips cooling on a plate. This is what people are circulating on Pinterest, the latest website-of-themoment for sharing things you love. Clean and simple to use, Pinterest attracts people who need to organize the chaos of Internet-age information overload. It serves as an online scrapbook of images they find on the Web, a place to post fashion inspirations, decorating aspirations and more. It’s a digital dream collage, a recipe box and a corkboard full of magazine clippings all at once. The site’s popularity has exploded in recent months, making it one of the fastestgrowing websites in history. Its ascent to 10 million monthly visitors happened faster than Facebook, Twitter or any other site tracked by comScore. What makes Pinterest’s surge unusual is that it’s driven not by the usual geek crowd of young men from New York and San Francisco, but by women, many of whom live in the Midwest and the central U.S. They use the sleek, photo-heavy website for fashion ideas, wedding planning and home design, or just to share photos of puppies. Angela Bitz, a secretary at a hospital in Davenport, Iowa, says she was drawn by the site’s layout and ease of use. She uses Pinterest to

collect decorating ideas for her home and for general crafting and cooking inspiration. She also turns to Pinterest for ideas on making jewelry from objects she finds. “It has well-organized information that is easy to save and share with others, as well as the ability to keep up on what my friends like and are doing,” she says. Pinterest’s co-founder Ben Silbermann is one of the most-anticipated speakers this week at the South by Southwest Interactive festival in Austin, Texas. As part of a question-andanswer session Tuesday, he’ll explain Pinterest’s rapid growth outside of Silicon Valley and discuss the company’s long-term goals. People will be watching closely, especially because Pinterest has been media-shy in recent weeks amid its meteoric rise. Much of Pinterest’s appeal is about displaying your plans and hopes. The trend is hardly new. Oprah Winfrey fans might recall the “O Dream Board” the talk-show host touted as a place to “envision your best life.” Steve Jones, professor of communication at the University of Illinois in Chicago, likened Pinterest to a bulletin board in a bedroom or dorm room. “It reminds me of my girlfriends in high school who’d cut stuff out of magazines and pin it up on a wall,” he says. “This is the Web-based, digital equivalent of that behavior.” Access to Pinterest is currently by invitation only, so those looking to join need

to request one from the company or ask a friend already on it. Once you’re in, you can create a board and name it “recipes,” ”weddings” or anything else. As you find images you like on the Web, you “pin” them to your boards to share with others. “Because it’s images only, it takes the clutter of text and Web pages away,” says Jennifer Levy, an interior designer in Brooklyn who uses Pinterest to share images with clients and to get inspiration for designs. You can follow other users on Pinterest, see the most popular pins or find gift ideas by price range. You can browse categories such as architecture, fitness and weddings. You can “like” anything that catches your fancy, re-pin it to your own board or add a comment. The cascade of images shared on any given day ranges from quirky nail art to a shirtless Ryan Gosling to ephemeral nature scenes. Clicking on an image can take you to a recipe or a blog post, or at times, an empty page. Cissy Proctor, an attorney in Tallahassee, Fla., uses it to curate inspiration for home design, entertaining, food, wine and gardening. Before Pinterest, she’d bookmark pages in the print magazines she subscribes to, but that meant “that I have to remember that dining room I loved,” she says. “Which issue was that in my stack of magazines?” Librarians are using the site to “pin” reading suggestions. Nathan Swartzendruber, who works for a library consortium in southwest Ohio, says that because the site is entirely public, unlike Facebook, pins could draw comments from people you’ve never met. Pinterest, like game maker Zynga and many others before it, likely wouldn’t have grown as popular without the help of Facebook, the world’s largest online social network. Facebook said last month that the number of its users visiting Pinterest every day grew by 60 percent after it was integrated into the site in January. Investors include prominent venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz and Jeremy Stoppelman, the CEO of reviews site Yelp Inc. Pinterest, which is based in Palo Alto, Calif., is privately held and does not disclose how much money it is making. The site doesn’t have advertisements or a clear path to profitability, but that’s common with Internet companies just starting out. Facebook and Twitter didn’t have ways of making money either when they started.

After 50, exercise has major benefits But age does involve embracing new approaches, techniques BY JEFF STRICKLER Minneapolis Star Tribune


Dick Anderson reached the pinnacle of his rock-climbing endeavors — literally as well as figuratively — 10 years ago when, after 3-1/2 exhausting days of clinging to the side of a sheer cliff, he reached the top of El Capitan, a majestic granite monolith in Yosemite Park that rises nearly three-fourths of a mile straight up. Shortly after finishing that climb, Anderson, then 52, dislocated his right shoulder. Two years later, while trying to come back from surgery on that shoulder, he blew out the left one. His climbing days were over, and the prospect of being relegated to an overstuffed chair in front of a TV pained him as much as his injured shoulders. “I found that I needed to be active to feel complete as a person,� said Anderson, of Minneapolis. But he also found that being active on the other side of 50 often involves embracing new approaches and techniques. And if you’re a lifelong athlete, it can mean coming to grips with the fact that you’re not going to be able to run as fast, hit a golf ball as far or climb rock walls the way you once did. Maintaining fitness as we age takes extra diligence, including more emphasis on stretching, monitoring hydration, focusing on form and strengthening core mus-

Ways for aging athletes to keep the spring in their step: • Keep things in balance. Balance is a learned skill, “although we tend to forget that,â€? said Mia Bremer, fitness manager at the retirement community Friendship Village of Bloomington, Minn. Improper balance can lead to pain in knees, hips and backs. She recommends strengthening the body’s core muscles — basically, the stomach and lower-back muscles — as well as doing balancing exercises, which can start with something as simple as standing on one foot. • Focus on form. Runners often wax poetic about “zoning outâ€? as they pad along their familiar

cles. Yes, these are the same things we were told to do in our 20s and 30s, but now the trainers really mean it. A 50-year-old body isn’t nearly as forgiving about us ignoring these things as a 20something body. Anderson decided to appreciate what he still could do rather than mourn the loss of what he couldn’t. “I’m so thrilled to be able to do what I’m doing at my age that I just let (the disappointment) go,� he said. “For some reason, my shoulders are OK with the motion for cross-country skiing and kayaking, so I do a lot of that.� Keeping physically fit as we age isn’t a pipe dream. A study conducted at the

heightened attention to nutrition and sleep patterns. • Follow the rules. We’ve all heard the guidelines about starting gradually so our muscles can warm up and then allowing for a cooldown period at the end of an exercise session. Aging bodies need those allowances more than ever. Time is often the villain in this scenario, Hankel said. “If we only have 45 minutes (to work out), there’s an urge to go fast right away to make the most of the time. Be patient.â€? • Stretch it out. Tight muscles and tendons can pull the body out of alignment. “As we get older, the harder it is on the body if we don’t stretch,â€? Bremer said.

routes, but don’t let inattention destroy your bliss. “Pay attention to the mechanics as you execute movement,â€? said Sarah Hankel, a personal trainer at the Lifetime Fitness club in St. Louis Park, Minn. If you’ve developed bad habits, fixing them requires focus. “It takes 3,000 reps for a muscle to acclimate to a new movement pattern,â€? she said. • Remember the basics. The importance of keeping hydrated increases with age. “Ligaments and tendons need the fluid,â€? said Mark Richards, vice president of program development for the Edina, Minn.based Welcyon Fitness After 50 clubs. The experts also urge paying

University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and published in January in the professional journal Physician and Sportsmedicine found that loss of muscle mass isn’t an inevitable byproduct of aging. “This study contradicts the common observation that muscle mass and strength decline as a function of aging alone,� it says, putting the blame on inactivity. But just keeping active isn’t enough, either, experts say. The key is keeping active in ways that help your body handle the activity. Mia Bremer, fitness manager at the retirement community Friendship Village of Bloomington, Minn., has seen this from both perspectives.

“We have clients in their 70s who wouldn’t be having (physical) problems now� if they had done what they were supposed to when they were in their 50s, she said. And at the same time, “We have clients in their 80s who did it right and are in excellent shape.� Jill Lile was teaching dance at Creighton University in Omaha, Neb., when she was sidelined by a toe injury that often afflicts ballet dancers. She not only was forced to redefine her dancing — “I started perfecting my flat-foot technique,� she said — but she segued into a new career as a chiropractor. “I could see the writing on the wall� as far as dancing, said Lile, 54. “I wanted to keep exercising

because I like the way I feel when I exercise. I like the benefits of exercising, and I wasn’t ready to pack it up. I realized that there was so much else available. There’s yoga and Pilates and Zumba.� There’s even still dance, including teaching classes at Minnesota Dance Theatre. It’s just not at the same intensity. “After I got surgery on my foot, I tried to work with it the best I could,� she said. “I can do ballet flat-footed. I just can’t do it all the way. I’ve modified it as best I could. I can still get out and move to the music.� Lile combines her injury experience with her technical knowledge as a chiropractor, although not all of her clients at the Hippocrates Center for Holistic Healing in Minneapolis like what she has to tell them. “A lot of runners are like dancers — when they get hurt, you can’t get them to stop,� she said. “You have to know when to stay down. A lot of injuries become a test of patience.� Returning to action too soon after an injury has become so common that there’s even a term for it now, said Mark Richards of the Edina, Minn.-based Welcyon Fitness After 50 clubs. “It’s called ‘incomplete rehabilitation syndrome,’ � he said. If you injure, say, a knee, use the other knee to establish “a baseline physiological status,� he said, and don’t return to action until the injured joint has the same strength and range of motion as the healthy one. Otherwise, “you’re an injury waiting to happen,� he warned.

Rachael Harris picks top films about strong women LOS ANGELES (AP) — She’s been best known for her comic roles in movies like “The Hangover” and “For Your Consideration,” and TV shows including “New Girl” and “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.” But Rachael Harris reveals a dramatic facet to her talent in “Natural Selection,” in which she plays a conservative Christian woman who goes on a road trip to find the son her husband never knew he had. Along the way, she also finds an inner strength she never knew she had. With this indie film festival favorite arriving in theaters

this weekend, we asked Harris to choose her five favorite movies about strong women. But since she’s so nice (and full disclosure: since she’s a friend) we let her pick six, in her own words: • “Hannah and Her Sisters” (1986): I love Dianne Wiest so much in this film it makes my heart hurt. I find her arc very satisfying. She’s a complete disaster who finds dignity and acceptance by the final frame. Just honest and brave and I am a sucker for a happy ending. • “Kramer vs. Kramer” (1979): Two words: Meryl

Streep. She’s just open her heart is full and open. She makes a woman leaving her son to live with his father a likeable person. You feel deep compassion for her character that’s crazy hard to do. She does it effortlessly, like everything else she does. • “Broadcast News” (1987): I love Holly Hunter in everything I think I’ve ever seen her in. I loved watching her character wrestling with her needs to be successful and driven and at the same time be a vulnerable woman wanting and trying to find love. • “Waitress” (2007):

Adrienne Shelly wrote and starred in the film and the entire cast was perfection in my opinion: Keri Russell, Cheryl Hines, Jeremy Sisto and Nathan Fillion. Simple and honest. A beautiful story of an unconventional romance. • “Tootsie” (1982): This is my favorite movie I love the way Dustin Hoffman is playing a woman. He does more for women in his portrayal of Dorothy Michaels than a lot of female actresses. I may get in trouble for saying that but I stand on my convictions. It’s the same reason I love Holly Hunter in “Broadcast News” it’s

a hard balance to strike and I think he does a lot in that performance for men to understand what woman go through. • “Steel Magnolias” (1989): Sally Field: “I’m fine. I can jog to Texas and back, my daughter can’t. She never could! I want to know why!” The most painful, real moment in that film. Full of tears and laughter existing at the same time. I live for those moments on screen. Sally Field and the ladies in that cast had funny, touching and painful moments … my favorite kind of moviegoing experience!


‘Jeff’ a sweet, slight comic adventure BY CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie Reviewer Mark Duplass has said that he and his brother, Jay, look to the veteran Belgian filmmaking brothers JeanPierre and Luc Dardenne for artistic inspiration, with their naturalistic, documentary-style approach to telling feature stories. That’s evident once again in “Jeff, Who Lives at Home,” a 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. And it reveals that between this and the 2010 comedy “Cyrus,” the Duplass brothers have figured out how to continue placing their signature, improvisational, indie stamp as writers and directors, even as they keep making bigger studio films with well-known actors. Jason Segel plays the titular character, a 30-yearold, pot-smoking slacker who still lives in the basement of his childhood home. (A side note: New Orleans natives Jay and Mark Duplass moved back into their parents’ house with their own families while shooting on location.) But Jeff is a thinker and a dreamer. 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) to pick up some wood glue at the hardware store turns into a weird and

winding adventure involving pick-up basketball, amateur sleuthing and an elusive man named Kevin who may hold the key to today’s true destination. The Duplasses create the sensation that we’re just following along wherever Jeff takes us, without judgment. Along the way, Jeff crosses paths with his older brother, Pat (Ed Helms), who’s his exact opposite in terms of values and temperament. He’s constantly trying too hard to impress both personally and professionally, and he’s desperately hoping to keep his marriage alive to the increasingly distant Linda (Judy Greer). All of these comic actors find different sorts of laughs sadder, truer ones by toning down some of their usual tendencies. They’re no less effective this way, but the shift does provide an unexpected tone. Still, for a frequently silly comedy, one of the funniest and most memorable elements is unabashedly romantic: Jeff and Pat’s mom, Sharon, has a secret admirer at work, and the way this enlivens her dreary, cubicle-dwelling doldrums is nothing short of magical. She seems willing to open herself to what the universe is trying to tell her, too, for the first time in a long time. In some ways this subplot could have been its own film. Still, Jeff’s mystical approach to life is inescapable, and everyone’s better for it whether they’re paying attention to the signs or not. “Jeff, Who Lives at Home,” a Paramount Vantage release, is rated R for language including sexual references and some drug use. Running time: 82 minutes. Three stars out of four.

Depp, Streep join call to lower ‘Bully’ rating Lee Hirsch’s documentary on bullying in American schools has been rated R. Distributors appealed the decision, but it was upheld by the MPAA. MPAA spokesman Howard Gantman did not address the possibility of a PG-13 for “Bully” in his response Tuesday to the growing call for a revision of its rating.

‘Jump Street’ update manages some laughs BY DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie Reviewer

The TV show that made Johnny Depp a star is little more than a jumping-off point for the big-screen “21 Jump Street,” a rowdy, raunchy update that aims for laughs over action and delivers them intermittently. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are surprisingly amusing together in a mismatched pairing of newbie cops sent undercover as high school kids to root out a drug ring. A couple of guest appearances from the TV show almost make the movie worth seeing on their own (the identity of the cameo perps has been widely reported, but we won’t name names here; even if you’ve read about them, the way they pop up will be a nice surprise). The R-rated grossout humor, language and violence don’t add up to the “21 Jump Street” you might fondly remember. But then, other than for Depp’s presence, how many people fondly remember

the show, anyway? This is not a property requiring respect and devotion to the source material to satisfy longtime fans, so the filmmakers wisely make a “21 Jump Street” all their own. They dump the idea on its head, poke not-so-polite fun at the original and offer a spot-on summation of Hollywood’s vapid approach to remakes, couching the commentary in cop jabber about reviving LA’s moribund program that places youthful-looking police moles in high schools. Two of the recruits are Hill’s Morton Schmidt and Tatum’s Greg Jenko. A brisk, clever prologue spells out their back-story, Schmidt as a high school uber-geek, Jenko as a dopey stud, with the two becoming unlikely best buddies years later at the police academy. Sent back to school as undercover brothers, the two flash back on old teen anxieties and encounter plenty of new ones as they struggle to fit in while tracing the source of a dangerous

new hallucinogen that erodes users’ inhibitions in insanely comical fashion. Hill shares story credit with screenwriter Michael Bacall, but what little actual story is here serves only as the setup for an anything-goes approach by the cast and directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (making their liveaction debut after collaborating on the animated hit “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”). Everything about the movie — the car chases, the shootouts, the teen kegger, the goofy idiocy of the characters — is pushed 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. Ice Cube pops in occasionally with some foul-mouthed fun as Schmidt and Jenko’s perpetually seething police captain, while Brie Larson is adorably fetching as the highschool hottie Schmidt might actually have a shot with this time

around. Hill and Tatum’s oddcouple act is the best thing about “21 Jump Street,” both playing the straight man yet managing to make their partnership much funnier than the hit-andmiss 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 of the time, or even most of the time, but it does work enough of the time to make “21 Jump Street” more enjoyable than most of Hollywood’s unimaginative remakes and updates. “21 Jump Street,” released by Sony’s Columbia Pictures, is rated R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language, drug material, teen drinking and some violence. Running time: 109 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four.


LOS ANGELES (AP) — More Hollywood heavyweights are joining the call for a lower rating on the teen-focused documentary “Bully.” The Weinstein Co., which is releasing the film March 30, said Tuesday that Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep and New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees have signed on to support the film.

In this book cover image released by St. Martin’s Press, “A Magnificent Obsession: Victoria, Albert, and the Death that Changes the British Monarchy,” by Helen Rappaport, is shown.

Lost love Book looks at Victoria’s 40 years of mourning BY ANN LEVIN AP Book Reviewer “A Magnificent Obsession: Victoria, Albert, and the Death That Changed the British Monarchy” (St. Martin’s Press), by Helen Rappaport: The year 1862 was a very good one for merchants of grief. Prince Albert, beloved consort of Queen Victoria, had died the previous December, and his bereft widow declared that the period of public mourning should be “the longest term in modern times.” Members of the royal household would not appear in public without their all-black clothes for a year, while she intended to wear her widow weeds for the rest of her life. And except for occasionally donning white lace, ermine, diamonds and pearls for official functions, that is exactly what she did until her own death in 1901. Helen Rappaport, a historian whose previous works include “The Last Days of the Romanovs,” has written a splendid new book that focuses on the roughly 10-year period just before and after Albert’s untimely death at age 42. Relying on forgotten letters, memoirs and diaries, she explores Victoria’s obsessive love for Albert, her pathological reaction to his death and the 40 years she spent commemorating him, sparking a craze for mourning-related memorabilia including fashionable jet jewelry. She also argues that Albert may have died of Crohn’s disease, not typhoid fever, listed as the official cause of death. Eventually, Rappaport explains, Victoria did emerge from her decade of seclusion to resume some of her public duties. Rappaport believes this was due in no small measure to the ministrations of her devoted Scottish servant John Brown. Two other events also helped jolt Victoria back to reality — her eldest son’s near fatal illness in 1871 and a half-baked attempt to assassinate her a few months later. Both prompted an outpouring of public support, making the selfcentered queen realize that she owed it to her loyal subjects to engage in the royal spectacle they craved. It was just in time, too. Republican sentiment was building as the British public increasingly questioned their huge expenditures for the royals. Ironically, strait-laced Albert likely would have disapproved of the orgy of grief after his death.

‘Roots of Style’ tells Isabel Toledo’s story BY MICHAEL ASTOR AP Book Reviewer “Roots of Style: Weaving Together Life, Love, and Fashion” (Celebra), by Isabel Toledo: Isabel Toledo’s “Roots of Style” is a very well-dressed little book. That will come as no surprise to fans of the Cuban-American fashion designer who rose to national prominence when Michelle Obama chose one of Toledo’s dresses to wear on Inauguration Day. Looking like she’s ready to be painted by Goya, Toledo graces the book’s cover wearing her hair tightly in a pair of buns and dressed in an elaborately constructed black-and-white dress of her own design. Inside, spry illustrations by Ruben Toledo, her husband and longtime collaborator, dance jauntily around the text, providing an added bounce to the story of the young girl from Camajuani, Cuba, who went on to become one of America’s pre-eminent clothing designers. In Toledo’s telling, the transfor-


In this book cover image released by Celebra, “Roots of Style: Weaving Together Life, Love, and Fashion,” by Isabel Toledo, is shown. mation seems almost effortless. One moment she’s playing with the family sewing machine, the next, she’s a preternaturally talented seamstress for whom doors

exist to be opened. As an added bonus, she’s also a very talented dancer, coming of age in the late ’70s New York City disco scene rubbing shoulders with the likes of Halston and Thierry Mugler at places like Xenon and Studio 54. Toledo’s unconventional rise has an almost fairy tale quality while providing fascinating glimpses of fashion luminaries like Diana Vreeland and over-thetop eccentrics like Joey Arias and Klaus Nomi along the way. But designing clothing which often succeeds more through suggestion than revelation requires slightly different skills than storytelling, and the book often seems to lack a narrative arc: Where is the conflict when Toledo calmly overcomes any obstacle thrown her way? She can also be maddeningly obscure, as when she casually tosses off that Karl Lagerfeld was the first person to call her a “couturier.” The reader is left to wonder whether the older designer said this after carefully examining her work or merely upon

glancing at one of her early selfmade outfits. The book is filled with observations and advice, most of which rings true but also comes perilously close to sounding like platitudes. “What most people don’t realize is that time really is on your side if you stop watching the clock,” she offers at one point. “Spending time on the things you love and that are important to you defines not only your work, but your personality as well,” she says at another. Sometimes Toledo seems almost naive, too sweet to have ever made it in the cutthroat world of high fashion, and the reader begins to suspect that along with some of the awkward English constructions that crop up occasionally this may be calculated. At one point Toledo, speaking of one her dresses, explains: “The result looks deceptively simple and graceful, hiding its inner mathematical equation.” She could also be talking about her book.

‘Brotox’ trending Men less afraid to look good


BY SUSAN THURSTON Tampa Bay Times They call it “Brotox” — slang for Botox treatments for guys. Evan Lo Balbo had never heard of the word until his girlfriend suggested they do something to fight the mean signs of aging on their faces. But there he was, a manly man, sitting in a reclining chair, Dr. Richard Castellano pushing needles into his forehead. “I’ve popped zits that hurt more than that,” he said afterward. “It wasn’t bad at all.” Lo Balbo is among a growing number of guys getting Botox injections and facial fillers to improve their looks. The term “Brotox” isn’t new, but got a boost in January when “Good Morning America” did a profile on women who think their men need Botox and give it to them as gifts. Men get Brotox to look younger and gain confidence. They might be competing for a new job or trying to score a date. “Today’s man is evolving,” Castellano said.

Over 250 exhibitors scheduled at this year’s show! Here’s how:

In this March 5, 2010, file photo Howard Rettenmeier, who has cut hair for 55 years at the Uptown Barber Shop, stands by the barber pole at his Dyersville, Iowa, shop. The barber pole, one of the oldest signs that can be seen on storefronts across America, is an increasing source of friction between barbers and beauticians over which businesses get to display the iconic striped poles.

Barbers get snippy over striped poles Beauticians using iconic symbol ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Friendly arguments aren’t hard to find in a barbershop, but try cutting in on a hallowed symbol — that red, white and blue pole — and it may be time to hide the scissors. Steeped in history and symbolism, those iconic cylinders spinning on storefronts across America are an increasing source of friction between barbers and beauticians. Minnesota and Michigan are the latest fronts in a spreading legislative campaign to reserve the swirling poles for barbers. The proposals, which often include fines for offenders, are driving a new wedge in a trade where gender lines have long run deep. “The barber pole is the oldest sign in town besides the cross. It should not be displayed where there is not a licensed barber,” said Charles Kirkpatrick, of Arkansas, a barber since 1959 who keeps tabs on such legislation for the National Association of Barber Boards of America. For many, the only real difference between a barber and hairstylist is the clientele they serve. But barbers say the tools of their trade and unique services they provide make them different, and that laws are needed to prevent beauty parlors, salons and other establishments from passing themselves off as barbershops, including chain shops that bear the barber name and logo but don’t have a single licensed barber on site. Cosmetologists argue that haircuts are haircuts, and say the protective efforts are silly and chauvinist. “They’re still trying to hang onto the vestiges that say they’re special. I can cut a man’s hair. Why shouldn’t I be able to put a barber pole up?” said Jeanie Thompson, president of the Minnesota Salon and Spa Association and owner of a beauty parlor. “They’re making a mountain out of a molehill.” As the story goes, the red on the pole signifies blood, the white stands for bandages and the blue represents veins. The symbolism dates from a time when barbers also performed surgical duties from teeth extraction to bloodletting. They had rods, or poles, for patrons to grip to make veins easier to tap. Barbers often twisted rinsed yet still blood-stained cloths around those same poles before hanging them out to dry. As the role evolved, the painted striped poles some spinning, some fixed became as much of a barbershop hallmark as the ubiquitous jars of blue comb disinfectant and gel-heavy haircuts. Barbers and cosmetologists both deal in hair, but there are distinctions in the crafts. A barber a term derived from the Latin word for beard is uniquely permitted to offer shaves with a straight-edge razor and specially trained to use shears and clippers. Cosmetologists also cut and style hair. But unlike barbers, they usually provide manicures, pedicures and an array of spa-

type services as well. Licensing requirements in the hair trade vary from state to state and by profession. In most cases, they depend on hundreds of hours of training and a yearly fee. At least 10 states have rules or laws that reserve the pole for barbers, most recently passed in Nebraska and Nevada. Alabama and North Carolina considered going that route in 2010, but their bills stalled. Ohio long ago outlawed the pole’s use by anyone but barbers. State inspectors find about a dozen violations a year, from salons to dog grooming shops. Howard Warner, executive director of the Ohio State Barber Board, said regulators can impose a $500 fine, but usually just order the pole be taken down. “We’re not out to beat anyone up or take their money,” Warner said. “Most of the time it’s done innocently.” The Minnesota bill breezed through a House committee last month and was due for its first Senate hearing Thursday. It hasn’t yet set possible penalties for violators. Hair professionals in Minnesota have a history of discord. To save money during tough budget times, then-Gov. Tim Pawlenty merged regulatory boards for barbers and cosmetologists in 2004. Years of infighting followed about which industry’s interests got more attention. In 2009, the two were split into separate entities again. Republican Rep. Bob Gunther, the bill’s sponsor, said he didn’t want to open those old wounds but he understands why barbers are so determined to get a barber pole monopoly. “It’s been a centurieslong, recognizable symbol of a barber and only a barber,” Gunther said. In the St. Paul suburb of Rosemount, a barber pole sits outside the Cahill Salon & Barber Parlor, where husband and wife owners Joel and Lisa Martin share space but not an opinion on the legislation. On one side is Joel Martin’s “Man Cave,” where a pool table, pinball machine and satellite TVs fill out a macho dcor. On the other, Lisa Martin’s clients can shop from carefully organized shelves of hair products and wait on white leather couches. Lisa Martin said anyone who cuts hair should be able to display the pole, and she can’t understand why it has the attention of state lawmakers. “There’s other things out there they should be more worried about in our industry other than who has a barber pole outside their business for advertising,” she said, ticking off sanitary conditions, for one. To Joel Martin, it’s about truth in advertising. “A lot of men will not come into a shop that just says salon because they are looking for someone who has barbering experience,” he said. “It tells people driving by that that’s what they can get here.”

Artwork gives a space heart, soul

“Custom Built Quality At An Affordable Price.”




Average rate rises to 3.92 percent WASHINGTON (AP) — The average rate in the U.S. on the 30-year fixed mortgage hovered near historic lows this week, making home-buying and refinancing more attractive to those who can qualify. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday that the U.S. rate on the 30-year loan increased to 3.92 percent. That’s up from 3.88 percent the previous week. The rate touched 3.87 percent four weeks ago, the lowest since long-term mortgages began in the 1950s. The average on the 15-year fixed mortgage rose to 3.16 percent, up from a record low of 3.13 percent last week. Rates on the 30-year loan have been below 4 percent for three months. Low rates are among the positive signs emerging that suggest this year could mark a turnaround for the depressed housing market. Still, many people are unable to qualify for the rates. Builders are more optimistic after seeing more people express interest in buying a home. Construction has picked up and builders are requesting more permits to build single-family homes. And the supply of homes on the market is falling, which could send home prices higher. A key reason for the optimism is the improving job market. Employers have added an average 244,600 net jobs per month from December through February. That has helped lower the unemployment rate to 8.3 percent.

BY MARY CAROL GARRITY Scripps Howard News Service You can fill your home with fabulous furnishings and killer accents, but if you don’t finish off with walls of dramatic artwork, the place will never feel finished. Artwork is one of the most powerful forces in decorating, because it gives a space heart and soul. Creating drop-deadgorgeous artwork displays is a lot easier than you think. Here are seven tips: 1. Hang large and small pieces together Some of the most powerful artwork galleries I’ve seen mix together pieces in a wide range of sizes, from very small to quite large. I think the variety of sizes makes the display more exciting. Whether they are little portraits, silhouettes, landscapes or architectural drawings, these tiny treasures should measure just a few inches. You’ll be amazed by how these little guys break up the sea of larger frames, somehow magnifying them in the process. 2.

Turn outdoor space into home extension

Pitfalls to avoid Do home’s features justify asking price? Six years after the market peaked in 2006 and prices started to decline, many sellers are still in denial about the current market value of their homes. It’s difficult for most sellers to accept the reality of today’s home-sale market, whether they bought at or near the peak and will lose money selling today, or bought decades ago but are still stuck at 2006 prices. An Oakland, Calif., homeowner recently remarked that she was aware that home prices had dropped quite a bit over the last five years. But she felt that her home hadn’t lost any value. It’s hard for homeowners to divorce themselves emotionally from a home they’ve enjoyed. But this is what sellers need to do so that they can make rational decisions about a list price that will actually result in a sale. This decision should be based on listings that have sold in your area that could be considered somewhat comparable to your home. Some sellers go to open houses to evaluate the competition. If you’re still emotionally wrapped up in your home, the exercise can be futile. You return home feeling that the other homes aren’t as good as yours. Put yourself in the buyers’ shoes. This is easier for sellers who are also buying in this market. They know what it’s like to want to make sure they’re getting a good deal. Your house needs to be listed at a price that is enticing to buyers because it represents a

Dian Hymer For the Miami Valley Sunday News good value. In most areas, buyers are buying in a market knowing that prices may continue to decline before the market fully recovers. HOUSE HUNTING TIP: Be wary of real estate agents who tell you that your home will sell for a higher-than-supportable price just to get the listing. Then they work on you over time until you reduce the price to market value. Realtors refer to this as buying a listing. It’s hard to resist the temptation of trying for a higher price than the comparable sales indicate. However, you won’t be happy if your home is on the market for months with no activity, and each time you drop the price it feels like too little too late. You can end up selling for less later if home prices in your area are still declining. Refinance appraisals are notoriously inaccurate in terms of market value — either too high or too low. An appraiser is attempting to gauge what price a buyer would pay when there isn’t a ratified contract that states what a buyer will pay. A high refinance appraisal can leave the seller with a false expectation. Listing your home based on what you want or need to net from the sale won’t motivate buyers to

BY ROSEMARY SADEZ FRIEDMANN Scripps Howard News Service Ever wish you had a bigger house or more living space? If so, consider adding an extension to your house. This can be a completely enclosed room or simply an extended patio. According to the American Society of Landscape Architects, more and more homeowners want better function and more usability from their outdoor spaces. So as you can see, you’re not the only one wishing for more usable living space. Let’s explore what we

can do to get there. First, you need a plan. Start by defining your space. This outdoor extension should feel comfortable and should also feel like it is part of the rest of the house. The definition you give the space should include how you intend to use it. Will it be for occasional use? Will it be more of a family gathering room? Will you be entertaining there? Is it going to be an outdoor kitchen? These questions will help you determine what needs to be included in the plans. The answers to the questions will also determine if the addition will be

simply a floor or if it will include a covering overhead and perhaps walls, too. Next, start selecting materials. It would be best if the materials were natural. If you intend to add an overhead covering, decide whether you will need walls or just posts to hold the ceiling up. Are the walls to be permanent, such as glass, rocks or bricks, or more casual, such as canvas fabric? How you furnish the space will depend on how open or enclosed it is. In addition to the

Pay extra attention to your garden’s border plants BY JOE LAMP’L Scripps Howard News Service Garden design is an art, not any kind of exact science. The “best” design is the one that satisfies you. But there are certain guidelines that have been proven over the years to be more or less universal when it comes to creating pleasing gardens. One of the most common is short plants, from low ground covers to about 18 inches tall down in front, mid-sized plants to 3 feet tall in the middle and large plants over 3 feet tall in the back. I know it sounds pretty rigid; but by placing plants in this configuration you’ll be able to see all of

them and, over the course of the season, get to know which ones shoot up and bloom first or longest, which ones are light and airy, which ones flower longest and which end up blocking their neighbors. Once you understand your garden’s personality, it will be easier to break the rules and create the look you want. Pay special attention to the front-of-the-border plants. Their job is to anchor the bed to the surrounding area, smoothing the change and keeping it from being too abrupt. They have to look good all season long, too, in spite of hot weather, insect damage or pets. Make the transition from yard or walkway to garden-bed gradual.

Use plants that are about 12 inches tall at the most, and have interesting details or textures. Unless you’re creating the most geometrically formal of gardens, plant your edges in a visual smorgasbord with drifts of different species. A broad mix is more interesting, and also ensures season-long color. Don’t forget to include some small deciduous and evergreen shrubs for interesting textures and color across the seasons. The front border is also the place to show off bulbs. Plant them in the fall, then overplant with colorful annuals. After the bulbs have bloomed, the annuals will hide the bulbs’ dying foliage. If the front-edge plants are all

very small, they’ll be out of scale with the larger perennials in the back. Use trailing perennials that will flow over and soften hard edges like paths and walls. Include some with mounding habits to hide the “bare ankles” of the taller perennials behind them. And mix in a few with fine textures, especially where the perennial bed merges into a lawn; their feathery appearance make the bed and turf connect, visually anchoring the two. Here are some popular plants for the front of the border. • Annuals Ageratum blooms summer to fall; tiny powder-puff flowers of true blue, white, lavender and rose; 6 to

24 inches tall; plant in large drifts for best effect. Wishbone flower: 8 to 12 inches; prefers shade; blooms nonstop until frost; great alternative to impatiens. Sweet alyssum: clouds of tiny, fragrant white flowers spring and fall; won’t bloom in high summer heat; 8 to 10 inches. • Perennials Thrift: pink, white, rose flowers mid-spring; long, grassy leaves 3 to 4 inches tall. Creeping baby’s breath: dainty white flowers in summer; 4 to 8 inches. Ozark sundrop: bright yellow flowers all summer; 12 inches; trailing habit. Rock soapwort: tiny pink flowers spring to summer; cascades over walls and rocks; 6 to 10 inches; cut back to encourage new growth.

Art graphs, exact measurements are a must. You want the lines of the grid to be crisp and precise. But if you’re pulling together a dynamic collage of mixed artwork, put away the ruler and place the pieces randomly into groups that just feel good. I don’t like the paintings in montages to hang in straight lines, so I stagger them just an inch or two. I think the overall impression is more exciting. 5. Make groupings tight When you hang artwork, create tight clusters, with the individual pieces of art snuggled up closely together. When pieces are spaced too far apart, they seem like separate islands and the overall display loses its impact. 6. Go 3-D Try displaying unexpected artwork like sconces, decorative shelves, trays, plates and lanterns to give a gallery more energy. Don’t get me wrong: I love galleries of framed artwork. But once in a while I like to toss in something unconventional to keep things interesting. 7. Use artwork to balance a room Artwork is a great tool to have when you’re trying to solve decorating challenges. For instance, built-in bookcases next to a fireplace are gorgeous, but can throw off the balance of the wall. Consider hanging a large piece of artwork on the other side of the fireplace.

How about the Fourth of July? Go ahead and put a few flags in the new addition. A great product for the floor, roof and supports would be cedar, and Western Red Cedar would be a good choice as it is versatile, holds a finish for a very long time and also weathers beautifully.

I like galleries that look as if they have evolved over time. When a grouping of artwork seems to have been collected piece by piece, not purchased as a group, it carries a lot of individual character. One way to achieve this look is to mix an assortment of frame shapes, styles and materials. I also really like to combine artwork that features different mediums, like oils, watercolors, line drawings, photography and even three-dimensional pieces like lanterns, sconces and plates. Finally, mix the style of the artwork you group together, tossing together traditional pieces with those that are very modern. When you do so, your eye has a tendency to stop and focus on each piece in the group, not scan over the whole. 3. Only buy what you love Don’t ever buy a piece of art just because it matches the colors in your sofa. Every piece of artwork in your home should grab your heart — and not let go. Take your time when shopping for artwork, holding off until you see something that you fall madly in love with. Don’t worry about where you will put it — those details will work their way out. And when they do, your walls will be filled with pieces that make your heart sing and tell others a lot about you. 4. Don’t line up frames in a collage The column has been adapted If you’re creating a grid of similar pieces of art, like a wall of from Mary Carol Garrity’s blog at matching botanicals or photo-

Designer turns a mid-century rambler into an Old World masterpiece BY KIM PALMER Minneapolis Star Tribune As an interior designer, Brian Ellingson has overseen a lot of home makeovers, but probably none more dramatic than his own. How dramatic? He started with a basic ’50s rambler and transformed it into a two-story Mediterranean-style house that would look at home in a French village or an Italian vineyard. It wasn’t a teardown. Ellingson kept the rambler’s original foundation and footprint, reused everything he could — from wood flooring to old appliances — added a second story, then retrofitted the house with arches, beams, ornate ceiling treatments and wroughtiron balconies that evoke earlier centuries. “I wanted a European feel, with all the architectural detail,” he said. He and longtime partner Gary Domann had admired country French and Italian houses on their travels, and Ellingson had worked with clients seeking to replicate that look, first during his long career with Gabberts and later at his own firm, Ellingson Interiors ( But why buy a rambler only to turn it into something else? Ellingson and Domann chose it for its setting, an oversized lot on a small lake in Edina, Minn., with city parkland on the opposite shore. “It’s all about the view; it’s like having a cabin up north,” Domann said. The rambler, built in 1954, had been remodeled in ‘68, and still had most of its vintage midcentury modern features, including a stone fireplace, Harvest Gold kitchen appliances and a very “Mad Men”-esque lower level, complete with wood paneling and a crocodile-upholstered, crescent-shaped bar. Ellingson wanted 9-foot ceilings on the main floor. “We had to take the roof off to add ceiling height,” he said. So while they were at it, they decided to add an entire second story. They hired professionals to do that, and to stucco the exterior. “Then I took over myself,” Ellingson said. He and Domann did the demolition work themselves, and Ellingson served as his own general contractor. “I’m very handson with the blueprints — I’m not afraid to move walls,” he said. He found craftspeople who could produce the Old World features he wanted, from a stone carver who apprenticed in France to create a fireplace mantel, to a cabinetmaker to manufacture the ceiling beams in the 19-foot-tall great room.


The dining room features an Elizabethan-style ceiling treatment.

The main-floor library is located in what used to be the master bedroom. “They’re designed to look like a support structure, but they’re just decorative,” he said. The most challenging feature, by far, was the groin-vaulted ceiling in the main-floor hallway. Ellingson found a local company to manufacture the underlying steel framework. “It was all computer-generated; usually they do them for churches,” he said.

Ellingson admitted that he was overwhelmed when the framework was delivered and he wasn’t sure what to do with it next. “I had a major meltdown,” he said with a laugh. “Fortunately, my brother was able to figure it out.” Throughout the process, Ellingson was committed to salvaging and repurposing as much

Here are some things to do: • In the spring you can get away with less light, so swap your high-wattage bulb for a three-way bulb and your room will have a softer feel. Opt for energy-efficient CFL-type bulbs. • Heavy rains plus freezing and thawing can destabilize

as he could. He pulled all the nails out of the rambler’s original oak flooring and reused the wood elsewhere in the house. Pine floorboards that they found in the attic during demolition are now installed in a guest room. Even that ’60s Harvest Gold stove and refrigerator that once served the main-floor kitchen are now in

use on the lower level, near the vintage bar. “I hate to waste things,” Ellingson said. “There are enough things in landfills.” He and Domann furnished the house with a combination of pieces from their previous home, a downtown condo, plus antiques and reproductions from flea markets and estate sales. Both are collectors, and many of their finds are displayed as decorative elements, including bird prints by British ornithologist John Gould, antique inkwells, blue willow china, black cloisonne, World War I-era fashion advertisements and French military epaulets. They’ve also transformed their backyard, creating an Italian-style garden with a pavilion and fountain that was inspired by a book-jacket photo. Ellingson designed the landscape himself, but hired out the actual digging, he said. “Some people might refer to me as an egomaniac who had to have absolute, total control,” he said. “But I had a vision of what I wanted to do out there.” The house and grounds finally look the way Ellingson envisioned them. “Now I’m fine-tuning,” he said. “It was fun — a labor of love. I would do it again, although I don’t know if I’d ever find another lot I liked this much.”

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.
