Committee supports loan approval Funds would be used to purchase Troy properties BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer


The finance committee approved two downtown loans to assist in the purchase of two properties, one on South Market and another on West Franklin streets.

A loan application from Four Sons Development, LLC was first discussed at the Downtown Loan Committee meeting earlier in the day Monday before being introduced at the finance meeting.

Four Sons Development plans to lease the first floor of the property at 114-116 S. Market St. for business use and renovate the upper floors with private funds at a later time. “At this time there are not exact costs for renovation, as the architect has not been hired yet,”

said Troy Development Director Jim Dando. The Downtown Building Repair Revolving Loan Fund (DBR) amount is $74,624, to finance 90 percent of only the acquisition, with simple annual interest of 3 percent and a 25year repayment term. Two loans

for the company, have been paid off, while two are in good condition, with the owner Wade Westfall making payments ahead of schedule. The building previously housed Shaughnessey’s TV & Appliances and has been vacant for several years. Four Sons has obtained DBR loans for three

‘Marching’ through spring

Coffee addiction is spiraling Late blast out of control Back in high school, I was always the girl getting the mocha-latte-frappe-whippedcream-doesn’t-even-tastelike-coffee drink whenever my friends would hang out at a coffee shop after class or a football game. (As you can tell, I know a lot about coffee terminology.) Basically, if it wasn’t a Carmel Frappuccino or some other dessert-style beverage, I wouldn’t drink it.

Restaurant owner faces charges Prosecutors are alleging that the owner of Charles Caserta Restaurant in Piqua went years without paying sales tax, and now the owner of the well-known eatery is facing three felony charges. Randall Caserta, 51, of Piqua, entered not guilty pleas to three counts of failure to remit sales tax, which carries a maximum penalty of four and a half years in prison, a fine and making full restitution if convicted.

An assistant to a financial controller for a Tipp City business who embezzled close to a quarter-million dollars entered a not guilty plea at her arraignment in common pleas court Monday. Tess M. Cremeens, 44, formerly of Piqua and now a resident of Troy, entered the not guilty pleas to one count of engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, one count of conspiracy to engage in a pattern of corrupt activity, one count of aggravated theft and nine counts of telecommunications fraud. Judge Robert Lindeman released Cremeens on a recognizance bond and set a pretrial hearing for April 8. Cremeens was the assistant to Michael J. Wion, 41, formerly of Piqua, who was a financial controller for Repacorp in Tipp City. She was hired by the company in 2006 and is accused of stealing more than $228,000 from the business. Wion was scheduled to be arraigned Monday but was not present. He has been charged with the same corruption and aggravated theft charges, but faces 12 counts of telecommunications fraud for allegedly embezzling

BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer Snow bunnies instead of the more traditional snowman were built around Miami County as the last blast of winter MIAMI swept COUNTY through Ohio on Sunday and early morning Monday. According to the National Weather Service, the Troy area received approximately 4 inches of snow during Sunday and Monday’s snowstorm. The snowfall closed Troy City Schools on Monday for possibly the last time this school year. According to Troy Street and Solid Waste Division Foreman Jerry Mullins, crews were out salting the roads for the blanket of snow on Sunday afternoon and scooped the slush throughout the day on Monday. Mullins estimated more than 60 tons of salt was used for what is hopefully the last time the plow and salt trucks will be out on the roads this spring. “We had crews out Sunday night to spread salt on primary streets to get out ahead of it,” Mullins said. By Monday morning, most of the roads that we had salted were slush and by 3 p.m. Monday, we had hit every road in town and just had to get rid of the

Court may sidestep ruling on gay marriage WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court dove into a historic debate on gay rights Tuesday that could soon lead to resumption of same-sex marriage in California, but the justices signaled they may not be ready for a major national ruling on whether America’s gays and lesbians have a right to marry. The court’s first major examination of gay rights in 10 years continues Wednesday, when the justices will consider the federal law that prevents legally married gay couples from receiving a range of benefits afforded straight married people. The issue before the court on Tuesday was more fundamental: Does the Constitution require that people be allowed to marry whom they choose, regardless of either partner’s gender? The fact that the question was in front of the Supreme Court at all was startling, given that no state recognized same-sex unions before 2003 and 40 states still don’t allow them. There is no questioning the emotions the issue stirs. Demonstrators on both sides crowded the grounds outside the

court, waving signs, sometimes chanting their feelings. Inside, a skeptical Justice Samuel Alito cautioned against a broad ruling in favor of gay marriage precisely because the issue is so new. “You want us to step in and render a decision based on an assessment of the effects of this institution which is newer than cellphones or the Internet? I mean, we do not have the ability to see the future,” Alito said. Indeed, it was clear from the start of the 80-minute argument in a packed courtroom, that the justices, including some liberals who seemed open to gay marriage, had doubts about whether they should even be hearing the challenge to California’s Proposition 8, the state’s voter-approved gay marriage ban. Justice Anthony Kennedy, the potentially decisive vote on a closely divided court, suggested the justices could dismiss the case with no ruling at all. Such an outcome would almost certainly allow gay marriages to resume in California but would have no impact elsewhere.

There was no majority apparent for any particular outcome, and many doubts were expressed by justices about the arguments advanced by lawyers for the opponents of gay marriage in California, by the supporters and by the Obama administration, which is in favor of same-sex marriage rights. The administration’s entry into the case followed President Barack Obama’s declaration of support for gay marriage. On the one hand, Kennedy acknowledged the recentness of same-sex unions, a point stressed repeatedly by Charles Cooper, the lawyer for the defenders of Proposition 8. Cooper said the court should uphold the ban as a valid expression of the people’s will and let the vigorous political debate over gay marriage continue. But Kennedy pressed him also to address the interests of the estimated 40,000 children in California who have same-sex parents. “They want their parents to have full recognition and full status. The voice of those children is important in this case, don’t you think?” Kennedy said.

• CONTINUED FROM 1 use up to 200 tons of salt for one snowstorm. Mullins said the salt supply looks fairly well stocked for next winter. “We’ll end up with two pretty full barns full — that’s about 1,600 tons of salt on hand,” he said. “It’s looking pretty good.” On average, Mullins said the city of Troy used approximately 900-1,000 tons of salt this winter, up from 700 to 800 tons per year the last three winters. “We’ve had quite a few small events this year,” he said. “We used a little more this year than in years past … as long as we don’t get any more snow.”

Old Man Winter may have finally retired this year, yet one can never be quite certain in Ohio. One city crew member shared with Mullins that he remembers being behind the wheel of a plow truck on the first day on the job during a snowstorm – on April 2. “I hope we don’t get any more snow,” Mullins said. “But then again, it was 50 degrees last Saturday and then it snowed on Sunday — that’s Ohio!” While no accumulation is expected, snow flurries may be scattered this evening with a low of 24 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. For more information about this week’s weather, see page 11.

WPTW • CONTINUED FROM 1 his broadcasting career at WPTW, he ultimately decided to focus on expanding the station and spending more time in Piqua, which was home to him and his wife, Eva, from 1972 to 1979. “When I bought this station, my wife and I felt it was time to give back to the communities that were so good to us,” he said. “WPTW will continue to grow. This is a great area. Great radio doesn’t have to come from bigger cities. Dayton has good radio stations, but you don’t have to be in Dayton to be good. There’s a lot going on in Piqua, Troy, Tipp City and Sidney.” Expanding to FM won’t change WPTW’s staff or double their duties, Muzzy said, and listeners can expect to still get their daily doses of news, agricultural reports, Muzzy’s show “Rick and Friends,” and of course, high school and university sports coverage.

ty Scott Shannon. The channel continues to appeal to listeners because of its diversity, Muzzy said. “It’s fun, uplifting music. It plays everything from the Beatles to the BeeGees to the Temptations to the Four Seasons to the Rolling Stones,” he said. “We hear from our clients all the time how they love playing it in their stores and businesses. Even though it’s targeted at adults 30 and over, even younger listeners enjoy it because it’s different from the teen-driven radio stations.” Muzzy said he’d like to explore other music genres in the future and continue to expand WPTW’s listening audience. “I’d like to see the station reclaim some of the prestige it had in the 70s, and I want people to say it’s their favorite radio station in the upper Miami Valley,” he said. In addition, he plans to continue his involvement in Piqua and surrounding communities, true to his company’s motto, “Locally Owned, Community Involved and Committed to Our Client’s Success.”

Who do you know who isn’t saved? Where will they go if they die without Christ?

Yet when Theodore Olson, the lawyer for two same-sex couples, urged the court to support such marriage rights everywhere, Kennedy feared such a ruling would push the court into “uncharted waters.” Olson said that the court similarly ventured into the unknown in 1967 when it struck down bans on interracial marriage in 16 states. Kennedy challenged the accuracy of that comment, noting that other countries had had interracial marriages for hundreds of years. The justice, whose vote usually decides the closest cases, also made clear he did not like the rationale of the federal appeals court that struck down Proposition 8, even though it cited earlier opinions in favor of gay rights that Kennedy had written. That appeals court ruling applied only to California, where same-sex couples briefly had the right to marry before the state’s voters in November 2008 adopted Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment that defined marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

Social media is a good thing in the right hands BY ASHLEY CURRENT Edison Community College Student I don’t understand what the big deal is about social media. Social media has many different aspects. Many people say that it is good because it connects the world, but many also say that by the world all becoming one that many cultures and heritages will be lost. The thing that gets me the most is that parents, professionals and adults always blame the website as the problem. Why is it when the news puts a story on the television about an 8-year-old child getting abducted, the people that view the story become completely irate and blame the website for the child getting taken? It is because they do not want to blame the poor little child for giving out personal information on a website, but in reality it is the child’s fault for getting on the website. May I simply state that all the information that they put on the internet is completely open to any pedophile out there. There are more than 747,408 sex offenders nationwide in the United States today. The first thing these people are going to do is get on social networking sites and start creeping on easy prey. It is the child’s fault, not the website. The website did not make the child sign up for the usage, the website did not make the child post their personal information and the website definitely did not make the child talk to the random people on the website. Social media sites are a very good way for people to meet one other. They help thousands of couples to find their significant other. About one in five people who have used online dating sites have gone on to marry someone they met via the Web. That is a very high percentage of people that have married one another. But the only relationships that people hear about are the ones that make the news. The headlines that say “Woman killed from online relationship” are the ones that get all the attention. Once again, it would be the lady’s fault for not knowing better. It’s an awesome way for people to meet one another. I personally know a couple that met on the Internet, talked for months, and finally decided to meet one another in person. They instantly fell in love with one another and got married. Today they have three children together and are happily married. People that disagree with the thought of an “online” couple getting married need to join the world in the 21st century. Everything in the world today is virtually done over the computer and via the web, dating one another is just the next step in becoming modern. If more teachers would connect with their students online, it would make schooling a lot easier for the student and the teacher. It is stupid that it is looked at as “unprofessional” for a teacher to be friends with a student on a website. All teachers should be able to have an online “relationship” with their students. What is the difference between a teacher being friends with a student and a college coach texting a high school player they want to attend their school? The answer is nothing. There are more than 145,000 NCAA athletes today currently playing a sport in which all these athletes were contacted by their college coach at some point — and their relationship was kept strictly professional. So why can’t teachers and students be given the same opportunity? They should. Teachers should be trusted to be friends with their student on social media sites. To the parents that do not think this way, why is it they trust them with their children seven hours a day, five days a week? When growing up, the American people seemed to teach their child to accept one another for who they are. In today’s world people are not taught this anymore. The only thing people care about is their money, status in society and sex lives — no one will bother with changing the “old ways.” So why is it that people that are against the world losing culture and heritages and eccentrically becoming one? Their culture and heritage was definitely not lost. Do not be afraid of change.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Chicago Tribune on growing need for missile defense: Decades ago, in the scariest days of the nuclear arms race with Russia, American schoolchildren learned to “duck and cover” under their desks in case an atomic bomb was dropped nearby. Since the end of the Cold War, kids have grown up free of the fear of nuclear attack. But those days may be coming to an end. New threats have emerged. The first is North Korea, which is believed to have as many as 10 nuclear warheads and recently carried out its third nuclear test. The Pyongyang regime, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, RMich., has missiles “that can reach U.S. shores.”

Missile defense is an attempt to buttress the power to retaliate with the ability to fend off incoming warheads before they arrive. Last week the Defense Department said it would spend $1 billion to deploy more missile interceptors along the West Coast to shoot down a North Korean missile, increasing the total number from 30 to 44 in the next four years. It’s a reasonable and useful step, at a cost that would seem trivial if the system were ever called on to deflect an attack. With regard to Iran, the administration took a different step, scrapping the last phase of a missile defense system that has elicited vigorous objections from the government of Russia — which regarded the program as a threat to neutralize its nuclear weapons. The

Pentagon insisted the U.S. decision was based on technical problems, which may be true. But it may also serve to pave the way to better relations and even arms reductions with Moscow. The danger still exists, of course, but President Barack Obama has made it clear he will take military action if necessary to keep Iran from getting the bomb. If he succeeds in deterring Tehran from that course — or in forcibly preventing it — the European missile shield will not be needed quite so soon. American missile defense still has a lot of hurdles to surmount before it can offer a reliable safeguard against attack. But even an imperfect system is better than nothing. And no one can doubt the need to keep pursuing it.


Coffee addiction is spiraling out of control Back in high school, I was always the girl getting the mochalatte-frappe-whipped-creamdoesn’t-even-taste-like-coffee drink whenever my friends would hang out at a coffee shop after class or a football game. (As you can tell, I know a lot about coffee terminology.) Basically, if it wasn’t a Carmel Frappuccino or some other dessert-style beverage, I wouldn’t drink it. My mom, on the other hand, drank black coffee like clockwork when I was a kid. She still does. A cup in the morning, another with lunch, a final serving at dinner. Oddly enough, she sticks almost exclusively to decaf. Any time I had a taste when I was younger, I thought it tasted — of course — like mud, as do most finicky youngsters. Fast forward to my college years. I can’t remember exactly when I had my first taste of coffee out on my own, but I know it was in a dining hall during the winter months. They had those little teacups instead of mugs (so typical for those cheapskate eating facilities) and I remember being cold and wanting something warm to

Natalie Knoth Troy Daily News Columnist drink. So I had a little sample. It didn’t taste all that horrible, but I definitely didn’t get what all the hype was about. But after consistently getting those teacup-fulls of coffee day after day, I soon had a liking for the taste. More than a liking, exactly. A longing. Before I knew it, I was having coffee with every meal. Like mother, like daughter. Several years later, there is no end in sight for my coffee addiction. I don’t even think I get a caffeine buzz off the stuff anymore. I just like the cozy, warm-and-fuzzy feeling I get after drinking it. So calming. That must be why decaf is a hit with my mom. I feel the same. Tea has the same effect, but still, there’s something so robust

about a heaping cup of coffee. I once read a (dumb) article about how your coffee says a lot about you, so apparently I’m a bitter, straight-forward person. Um, alrighty then. Maybe I should start sipping on something with chocolate and cinnamon. Sugar and spice and everything nice. Anyway, it’s a little embarrassing how much my day revolves around when I can get my next cup of coffee. I didn’t realize it was so pathetic until I was on vacation with my family and could no longer fire up the coffee pot or go through the drive-thru at my choosing. I know, I know. Such a prima donna. But I had a headache straight for three days, and I think I know why. My needs were unfulfilled. I’ve even been known to get coffee at bars and restaurants when out with friends. I get made fun of constantly, but I don’t care. More for me. Even better if I can get an Irish coffee. (Though I sometimes get a weird feeling after having those. It’s a strange — albeit delicious — concoction.) Coffee got me through many a deadline in college, and it’s gotten

me through many a deadline in the newspaper biz too. Drinking a cup of joe is as integral to the writing process as interviewing people and tapping away on a keyboard. It’s brain power. I’m not sure if it’s a mind-overmatter type of deal, but coffee makes me feel exponentially more relaxed, focused and creative. Especially with these blustery days (ugh!), I need the boost even more, whether I’m reading, writing or just dwelling. As a side note, I think McDonald’s beats out any other grab-n-go coffee. Of course I get the large. While I can pretty much drink anyone under the table (I’m still talking coffee here), there have definitely been days where I’ve reached my limit. Like the times I could feel my heart beating faster, faster, faster in my chest. That can surely create some anxiety. But generally, coffee invigorates, and oddly enough, also calms me, rather than turning me into a crazed maniac. Well, most of the time.

Words to Know: longhouse moguls Gothic turreted lean-tos bequeathed Romanesque For Discussion: 1. Most people think of castles as being very old and in Europe. Why do you think people in America would want to build a castle? 2. Search the Internet or the books at your local library for information on European castles. What is the oldest one you find? How much older is it than the Piatt Castles, Loveland Castle and the Brumback Library? Newspaper Activities: Scan the “homes for sale” ads in the classified section of the newspaper.

Hubby needs to know that having kids is crucial to your marriage Dear Annie: I am married to a wonderful guy who has a daughter by his ex-girlfriend. I have not yet met my stepdaughter. Her mother has full custody and won't allow my husband access. I am older than my husband by three years. I want to have a child. Before we married, my husband and I talked about having kids. We talked about it again last December, and we agreed that it was time to start a family. Here's the problem: He has now decided he's not ready. I work in the maternity ward of a local hospital, and I see the complications older women can have with pregnancy and with delivery. I am getting close to that age. I want to have a healthy pregnancy and child, but the longer we wait the harder it will be. My feeling is that one is never really "ready" for kids, but you make the necessary sacrifices to have something so amazing in your life. I have asked my husband why the sudden change in attitude, and his only response is, "I don't know." I'm getting tired of that, but when I say so, he replies, "I feel ya." Totally not helpful. I don't want to force him to have a baby, but I want a family and am getting tired of his excuses. I love my husband, but this is driving me crazy. How can I find out what is really bothering him and get him on the same page again? — Monica Dear Monica: Whether or not to have children is one of those non-negotiable issues that can break up a marriage. Your husband is being evasive and seems uninterested in the idea of children. We wonder why he hasn't fought harder to be a part of his daughter's life. If having a child is crucial to you, your husband needs to know that you are willing to leave the marriage in order to find a more cooperative partner. Frankly, we aren't sure he will make any effort to stop you. Dear Annie: I have worked in the restaurant industry all of my life. Our place is near a clinic. It's one thing to leave gum under the tables, but I am amazed at the number of people who leave their used bandages, cotton and surgical tape. They just put it on their plate and expect us to dispose of it. Yuck. I understand that these people are coming to eat after having procedures done, and I am grateful for their business. But would it be too much to ask that they dispose of these medical bandages in the bathroom garbage? It's pretty disgusting to have these things on the table. — A Waitress, Not a Nurse Dear Waitress: We agree. Since you get a lot of clinic customers, you can ask management about posting a sign asking people to dispose of post-procedure bandages in a specially designated "hazardous waste" container in the bathroom. But some people will leave them on the table regardless. It might be wise to talk to management about having a box of disposable gloves that can be worn when clearing the tables. Dear Annie: This is for "Concerned," who objected to having his late wife's photo displayed at his granddaughter's wedding. When my daughter married, she had a table in the lounge area with photos of both sets of parents, even though one set was divorced. No one objected, including the new significant others. She also included photographs of all four sets of grandparents, even though three were deceased. The bride could put a picture of her grandfather and grandmother together, and also one of the grandfather with his new wife. Seems a no-brainer to me, and it's silly of the grandfather to be so petty about it. Weddings are headaches enough. — Grateful We Get Along in My World Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

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


What’s the easiest way to remove pomegranate seeds? Dear Heloise: I love pomegranates, but I often have trouble removing the seeds without bursting them. Is there an easier way to remove them, and is it OK to eat the white part of the seed (the whole seed)? — Angela G. in Ohio Arils (the red seeds) can be eaten, including the white part. Removing the seeds is easy, too. Cut off about an inch of the top of the fruit. Looking down, you’ll see sections to pull apart. Fill a bowl with water, place the sections in it and gently pull out the seeds, and they will sink to the bottom.

Hints from Heloise Columnist Throw out the rest, and strain the seeds. Now you can just pop them in your mouth to enjoy, or store in a container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. — Heloise P.S.: Pomegranates (whole) will keep for about one month on the counter or two in the refrigerator. So, stock up when

they are at a good price. The name “pomegranate” comes from Middle French, and literally means “seeded apple.” It also is referred to as a Chinese app Dear Heloise: I usually buy fresh spinach to put in my omelets, but sometimes it goes bad before I can use it all. By chance, I took some fresh spinach, dropped it into a small, plastic bag and placed it into the freezer (rinsed and patted dry — Heloise). It kept longer, and when I pulled it out, I broke it into pieces by crunching the bag. Wish I knew this years ago!

— Karen B., via email CONTAINING SUGARS Dear Heloise: Brown sugar and powdered sugar are sold in boxes or bags, which I find messy. I avoid the mess while employing the environmental principle of repurposing. I use an empty container of Parmesan cheese (washed) for powdered sugar. The container has openings on top, with small holes for sprinkling and a bigger one for spooning. For brown sugar, I clean a used, plastic coffee container. One designed to hold 11-12 ounces of coffee is the best size. — Bill C., via email



Wednesday, March 27, 2013













BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, March 28, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is an exciting day, which is why you will impulsively respond to situations and people around you. New love or exciting flirtations could make your day! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You feel restless today, because you have the feeling you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. (Invariably, it’s ugly and the wrong size.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You can expect to meet someone who is a real character today. Or possibly, someone you know (especially in a group) will surprise you or say something shocking. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Unexpected good news might come to you today, especially through a boss, parent, teacher or VIP. You might get a promotion or unexpected praise. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Surprise opportunities to travel or explore advantages in publishing, higher education, medicine and the law might fall in your lap today. (This window of opportunity will be brief, so act fast.) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Surprise gifts, goodies and favors from others might come your way today. Don’t hesitate. Accept what is yours, and just say, “Thank you.” LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A partner or close friend will catch you off-guard today. This person might demand more freedom in the relationship. (He or she will do something unexpected.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) The good news is that you might get praise or a raise today. The bad news is that computer crashes, power outages and staff shortages might dog your footsteps at work. Aaggh. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Surprise flirtations could make your heart go pitter-patter today. (Eyes across a crowded room, and all that.) Parents should be extra vigilant, because this is an accident-prone day for your kids. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your home routine will be interrupted today. You might run out of coffee or bread. Small appliances might break down or minor breakages could occur. Surprise company might knock at the door. (Yikes.) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is an accident-prone day, so pay attention to what you say and do. However, you also might dream up genius ideas, because your mind is percolating with energy! PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might find money; you might lose money. You might buy a new, high-tech toy or alternatively, something you own might be broken or lost. It’s a crapshoot! (Anything could happen.) YOU BORN TODAY You are an individualist who is willing to accept what is going on around you. You’re not afraid to be different; you go after what you want. Because of your honest expression, you have a great following. (But you do need your privacy.) Get ready for an exciting year ahead, because it’s the beginning of a fresh new cycle.

Prosecutors allege Caserta did not pay sales tax BY WILL E SANDERS Civitas Media Prosecutors are alleging that the owner of Charles Caserta Restaurant in Piqua went years without paying sales tax and now the owner of the wellknown eatery is facing three felony charges. Randall Caserta, 51, of Piqua, entered not guilty pleas to three counts of failure to remit sales tax, which carries a maximum penalty of four and a half years in prison, a fine and making full restitution if convicted.

Caserta was released on his own recognizance after his arraignment in common pleas court Monday. According to his indictment, Caserta allegedly committed the offenses from Jan. 1, 2009, through Aug. 31, 2011, and each of the charges represents each year — 2009, 2010 and 2011 — that he failed to remit sales tax. Court documents filed by city of Piqua Prosecutor Stacy Wall indicate that Caserta failed to remit $13,567.03 on a monthly basis in that time frame. Authorities said Caserta is the “sole shareholder” of Charles Caserta Restaurant, which is located at 331 S. Roosevelt Ave., Piqua. An April 1 pre-trial hearing is scheduled.

105 Announcements

CAUTION Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western branches are Union trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable. If you have questions regarding scams like these or others, please contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office at (800)282-0515.

4 Big Ten teams land in Sweet 16 EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Big Ten has a nation-high four teams still in the NCAA tournament, bolstering its season-long boast that its conference is the best in college basketball. The Big Ten has combined to win 10 games so far, its best showing through the round of 32 — ever. And, it could get even better.

An All-Big Ten Final Four is possible because top-seeded Indiana, second-seeded Ohio State, third-seeded Michigan State and fourth-seeded Michigan will compete this week in different regions. “The fact that there are four teams advancing shows that this conference prepares you for any type of team or game,” Hoosiers coach Tom Crean wrote in a text

message Monday morning while preparing to play fourth-seeded Syracuse in the East Regional semifinals. “You develop possession by possession appreciation.” Indiana played grind-it-out, low-scoring games during the Big Ten — going 0-3 when held to fewer than 60 points — and had to rally late in some other games to win. The experiences paid off when the Hoosiers, who

Has he returned? Only Tiger Woods knows for sure ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Life must be going well for Tiger Woods when he can make headlines in the gossip pages for dating Olympic ski champion Lindsey Vonn and in the sports pages for winning Bay Hill and returning to No. 1 in the world. All in the same week. The studio photos of Woods and Vonn that were posted on their Facebook pages looked more suitable for a catalog showcasing their clothing sponsors. Far more natural were the poses Woods struck Monday afternoon with Arnold Palmer after winning his tournament left arm draped around Palmer’s shoulder, both unable

to contain their laughter over whatever was said that could not be repeated. “But it was funny,” Woods said, breaking into a broad grin as he replayed the exchange in his mind. “Really funny, actually.” Yes, Woods appears to be in a happy place. Winning does that, and Woods is starting to win with alarming frequency. In the one year and two weeks since he limped off the course at Doral with tightness in his left Achilles tendon the same injury that forced him to miss two majors in 2011 Woods has won six times in his last 20 starts on

the PGA Tour. In his three wins this year, no one got closer than two shots at any point in the final round. The limp has been replaced by a swagger. “He looks a lot more comfortable out there. He doesn’t really miss many shots. And if he does, it’s not by a whole lot,” said Rickie Fowler, who played with Woods in the final group and has seen plenty of him at practice at The Medalist in South Florida, where both are members. “You know when another guy is playing well and he’s on top of his game,” Fowler added. “He’s

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — NASCAR chairman Brian France said Tuesday that the contact between Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin as they battled for the win at California over the weekend was just the kind of throwback racing he expects out of his drivers and the new Gen-6 car. “I have said repeatedly, every minute, that contact, especially late in the race when you are going for a win, that’s not only going to happen that’s expected,” France said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. “Both of them did exactly what I think you would do when you really, really want to win. Getting some contact, trying to race extra hard to win the race, that’s what we’re about.” NASCAR said it won’t penalize Tony Stewart for scuffling with Logano after the race, and series officials saw nothing to indicate Logano or Hamlin were trying to intentionally wreck each other as they raced for the win. In addition, NASCAR officials have given no thought to policing blocking, which is what Logano did to Stewart on the final restart to trigger the postrace confrontation. “There are no conversations internally inside of NASCAR to look at blocking as a violation or a penalty as some other forms of motorsports do,” Sprint Cup Series director John Darby said. “As good as the racing has been, as exciting as it’s been, I don’t know that we need to jump in the middle and screw it up.” Stewart parked his car near Logano’s and angrily approached him after Sunday’s race at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. There was some shoving, but crew members intervened before any punches landed. Logano threw a water bottle at Stewart. Darby said the incident didn’t escalate to a level where NASCAR had to take action. “A few years ago we backed away from micromanaging drivers’ emotions, you would hope in today’s world that if somebody didn’t win a race, they would be upset about it,” Darby said. “I don’t know that we’ve actually got a rule book that describes every push in the chest or kick in the shin. If two guys get into a helluva fight, we’re going to have to react. But a couple of guys blowing off some steam and slapping at the air is not going to get anybody in a whole lot of trouble.”

The Wildcats (29-5) will face Delaware in the semifinals of the Bridgeport Regional on Saturday. Clinging to a 46-44 advantage early in the second half, Mathies scored 10 points during a 16-3 run to take control of the game. The two-time SEC player of

the year hit two 3-pointers, including one to cap the burst and make it 62-47. She didn’t hit a field goal in the first round win over Navy. She made 13 of 17 against Dayton. Andrea Hoover scored 22 points to lead the Flyers (28-3), got no closer than eight the rest of the way. Delaware 78, N.

Heat not fixated on streak


that changed everything. “We like knowing we have that switch,” guard Dwyane Wade said. “We just don’t want to use it too much.” Chicago has already beaten the Heat once this season, on Miami’s home floor. On Friday, the Heat head to New Orleans, where the Hornets just snapped Denver’s 15-game winning streak. And Sunday’s game at San Antonio is against not only the Western Conference leader and potential NBA Finals opponent, but also likely will have huge implications for the No. 1 overall playoff seed. Whether the opponent is a playoff team like Chicago or a lottery-bound club, James said the approach has been steady. “It has been tough all year,” he said. “It hasn’t been easy for us at all. Every team has given us their best. We know that Chicago is going to be a tough game for us, and playing in that building. We want to come out with our game plan … and give ourselves a chance to win.”

By the Associated Press The Los Angeles Lakers made it look easy when they racked up win after win after win for an NBA-record 33 straight games. The Miami Heat, not so much. Those Lakers of 1971-72 won 17 games during that streak by 15 points or more. The Heat take more of a grind-it-out approach, often getting into trouble before flipping a switch and pulling away. “We’re going to get everybody’s best shot because of the streak,” Heat guard Mario Chalmers said. That’s why instead of savoring the 27 in a row they’ve already won, the Heat are bracing for perhaps one of the biggest road tests so far in their pursuit of those Lakers. Miami plays at Chicago on Wednesday night, a renewal of a rivalry that, on paper, certainly has lost some of the sparkle it had a year or two ago. The Bulls still don’t have injured point guard Derrick Rose back in the lineup and have lost 13 of their last 22


Miami Heat’s LeBron James (6) dunks as Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook looks on during a game earlier in the year in Miami. games. Still, the Heat expect a playoff-type, roughand-tumble meeting. “Our historic run is about winning championships,” Heat star LeBron James said. “That’s what we want to be known for. It’s part of a process. Whatever comes in between that, we can be excited about it. We didn’t have a goal in mind to say, ‘Let’s go on a long consecutive win streak,’ but our goal is to win every

game when we are on the floor.” In recent days, that hasn’t been easy. Boston had the Heat down by 17 early and 13 in the fourth quarter. Cleveland put Miami in a 27-point hole, and in Detroit and Charlotte, the Heat trailed by 11 before pulling away. On Monday night, the Orlando Magic and Heat were tied late in the third quarter before James keyed a 20-2 run

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 got a little something.” Haven’t we heard this before? Remember, Woods won Bay Hill a year ago and was declared the favorite to win a fifth green jacket at the Masters. Instead, he never broke par and wound up with his highest score as a pro at Augusta National and tied for 40th. He won the Memorial in his final event before the U.S. Open, and then shared the 36hole lead at Olympic Club. He failed to finish in the top 20. It’s easy to get caught up in the hype because we know how good he was and believe he can be that good if not better again. This latest win at Bay Hill, however, was different. It gave Woods consecutive wins for the first time since August 2009. Asked the last time he felt this good going into the Masters, he said, “It’s been a few years.” “I think it shows that my game is consistent,” Woods said. “It’s at a high level.” Woods lost part of his mystique when he stopped making putts. Now he seems to make everything. Fowler learned that on the 12th hole Monday after making a 40-foot birdie putt to get within two shots of Woods, only to stand on the edge of the green and watch Woods match it with a 25-footer of his own. The last time Woods won back-to-back tournaments heading into Augusta was in 2001, the year he won the Masters to compete his unprecedented sweep of the majors. Winning cannot be overstated, even for a guy who has won more than anyone in PGA Tour history except for Snead. Woods walked into his winner’s press conference with his cell phone in hand, scrolling down to read the messages, most of them from his staff. Rory McIlroy, whom he replaced at No. 1 in the world, sent him a text Tuesday morning. Vonn shared her thoughts on Twitter:

“Number 1 !!!!!!!!!!!!!” It wasn’t long before Woods was asked the correlation between going public about dating Vonn and winning a tournament to go back to No. 1 for the first time since October 2010. There was a time when Woods answered questions about his personal life by saying, “That’s none of your business.” But he had fun with this one. “You’re reading way too much into this,” he said with a grin. The trouble with Woods is that he has never been an open book. Only he knows how badly his leg was injured. Only he knows how far along he was in the latest swing change under Sean Foley. Only he knows how much life as a divorced father of two has affected his game. The greatest temptation Woods faces now is to resist wagging his finger at anyone who doubted whether he could get back to No. 1 in the world, whether he could challenge Jack Nicklaus and his record 18 majors. Woods has been stuck on 14 majors since 2008. The majors will be the ultimate measures. The Masters starts April 11, and if Woods isn’t wearing a green jacket in Butler Cabin on Sunday night, it won’t mean this was another false alarm. Golf is still hard. Woods only has a way of making it look easy. Think back to one of the most dominant phases of his career. From August 1999 through March 2000, Woods won or finished second 10 times in 11 starts on the PGA Tour. The Masters was his next tournament, and it didn’t look like there was any way he could lose. In the opening round, he three-putted for double bogey on No. 10 and threeputted from 12 feet for a triple bogey on No. 12. Woods shot 75 that day, never caught up and tied for fifth. That summer, he won the next three majors. For Woods, it has always been about giving himself chances.

Sunshine State success


Florida teams shining in March Madness spotlight GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — March Madness in the Sunshine State has long meant little to most people in Florida. Sure, the Florida Gators have been an NCAA tournament staple during coach Billy Donovan’s tenure, which includes national back-to-back championships (2006-07). Everywhere else in the football-frenzied state, though, the closest fans usually get to college basketball’s biggest stage is taking part in office pools and watching bracket-busting games on television. Oh, have things changed this week. With second-seeded third-seeded Miami, Florida and darling Florida Gulf Coast advancing in the NCAA tournament, basketball has taken center stage all across the peninsula. Throw in the Miami Heat’s 27-game winning streak, six shy of tying the NBA record set by the Los Angeles 1971-72 Lakers, and hoops is the hottest thing going in Florida. Spring football? Not now. Baseball spring training? Please. Even the beautiful beaches can’t compete with what’s happening on the hardwood. “This time of year, so many people are captivated by the NCAA tournament,” Donovan said Tuesday. “Certainly, when you have three teams from the state

Division I in 1985. The Hurricanes face third-seeded Marquette on Thursday in Washington, D.C. Florida, the No. 3 seed in the South Regional, advanced to round of 16 for the third consecutive year the first time that’s happened in the program’s 18 tournament appearances. The Gators play streaking Florida Gulf Coast on Friday night in Arlington, Texas. And there’s little left to say about Florida Gulf Coast, which became the first 15 seed to advance to the round of 16 in tournament history. The Eagles

knocked off Georgetown and San Diego State in Philadelphia over the weekend to make history, capturing fans along the way with their up-tempo offense, alley-oop passes and high-flying dunks. When FGCU players returned to class Monday, they were greeted by applause. Later that night, about 4,000 fans attended a pep rally inside the school’s arena to celebrate the program’s accomplishment. Can the run really continue? “We think we can compete with them,” coach

Andy Enfield said. “If we play well, we’ll have a chance to win the game.” Donovan agrees, saying FGCU shouldn’t be considered “Cinderella” at this point. “The country may give a team a label, but we never do that,” Donovan said. “This is a really good team that has played exceptionally well, that is maybe playing as well as anyone in the country right now. The seeding and all that stuff, it doesn’t mean anything. When the ball goes up in the air, you’re playing against each other. This is a team that beat Miami, beat Georgetown, knocked off San Diego State. They went into their conference championship, basically on the road, and beat Mercer on their home court. “You don’t do those things unless you are really good.” With Florida, Florida State and Miami, the state enjoyed unparalleled football success for decades. The Gators (1996, 2006 and 2008), Seminoles (1993 and 1999) and Hurricanes (1983, 1987, 1989, 1991 and 2001) have combined for 10 national championships and nearly as many runner-up finishes. Adding in pockets of success by the NFL’s Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars, and there’s plenty of traction for the state’s love affair with football.

teams start the NCAA tournament last week and only fifth-seeded Wisconsin failed to advance, losing by 11 points to 12th-seeded Mississippi. Minnesota routed UCLA by 20 — though that didn’t help Tubby Smith keep his job because he was fired Monday, a day after losing by 14 to Florida. Illinois beat Colorado before losing a competitive game with second-seeded Miami. The Golden Gophers and Fighting Illini helped to help the conference win 10 games, a total that trails the Big East’s record of 11 wins

through the round of 32 in 2009 and 2012, according to STATS. The Big Ten had won nine games four times up to this point of the NCAA tournament, including last season, when it also sent four teams to the regional semifinals. Spartans coach Tom Izzo started saying the conference was the best in the country before the season opened and he felt even stronger about his opinion throughout the nonconference schedule when his team had one of the league’s marquee wins by beating Kansas. Even though the Big Ten has one more team than the Big East still in the NCAA tournament — and twice as many as the ACC and Pac12 — Izzo insisted he doesn’t feel as if his point has been proven. “To some, it won’t be validated unless the Big Ten wins a championship,” Izzo said. “Perception becomes a little bit of reality and the

more games you win, the farther you go. I think we earned our keep, again, over the 18 grueling games and that Big Ten Tournament. “Now this is frosting on the cake.” Michigan State and Michigan won their first two games relatively easily, putting the rivals in the same round of 16 for the first time. Izzo, who has said it is “illegal” to like the Wolverines, acknowledged he is pulling for the maize and blue and the rest of the Big Ten during the NCAA tournament Michigan coach John Beilein said he surprised himself by cheering for another rival, the Buckeyes, in their tight game with the Cyclones. “During the season, I do not root for other schools in the Big Ten,” Beilein told The AP. “But I found myself rooting for the Big Ten this past weekend, hoping Aaron Craft would make a free


Florida Gulf Coast’s Sherwood Brown, center, celebrates with teammates after their 81-71 win over San Diego State in a third-round game in the NCAA college basketball tournament Sunday in Philadelphia. Florida Gulf Coast became the first No. 15 seed to make the Sweet 16. of Florida still playing in the NCAA tournament and in the Sweet 16, I think it’s certainly going to draw a lot of attention to basketball.” It’s certainly a change, too. Not only does Florida have three schools in the round of 16 for the first time, each program reached milestones in this NCAA tournament. Miami, the No. 2 seed in the East Regional, earned its highest seeding in school history and made it to the round of 16 for the first time since 2000 and second time since joining

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 to advance to the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history. Duke 68, Ok. State 59 DURHAM, N.C. — Elizabeth Williams had 16 points and 12 rebounds, and Duke rallied to beat Oklahoma State 68-59 on Tuesday night in the second round of the Norfolk Regional. Haley Peters added 15 points and 13 rebounds while Tricia Liston scored eight of her 13 in the final 6-plus minutes and Chloe Wells also finished with 13 for the second-seeded Blue Devils (32-2). They advance to face sixth-seeded Nebraska in the regional semifinals on Sunday in Norfolk, Va. Duke trailed by 15 points in the first minute of the second half before outscoring the seventhseeded Cowgirls 47-23 during the final 19 minutes to reach the tournament’s second weekend for the 15th time in 16 years. Louisville 76, Purdue 63 LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Sara Hammond had 21 points and 10 rebounds to help fifth-seeded Louisville beat Purdue 76-63 Tuesday night and advance to its second NCAA tournament regional semifinal in three years. The Cardinals (26-8) will play either top-seeded Baylor or Florida State on Sunday in Oklahoma City in the program’s fourth regional semifinal in the last six years.

throw or a 3-pointer, because there’s an appreciation for the competition we have within our conference.” The Big Ten hasn’t had a national champion in men’s basketball since the Spartans won it all in 2000, a title that ended an 11-year drought after Michigan cut down the nets in 1989. Before that, the Bobby Knight-led Hoosiers won national titles in 1987, 1981 and 1976 and Magic Johnson helped Michigan State beat Indiana State — with Larry Bird — in 1979 in a transcendent game. Matta said the Big Ten is due for a title, telling reporters in Dayton, Ohio, it is “highly likely,” a team from the conference will win the national championship. “There’s a very, very good chance of it,” he said. “The one thing about the Big Ten this year is you’ve got great players. Obviously, you’ve got great coaches. “It will be interesting to see how it plays out.”

Big Ten the conference, but we’re just trying to figure out how to get past Arizona.” Ohio State will face the sixth-seeded Wildcats in the West Regional semifinals. Michigan State will be matched up with secondseeded Duke in the Midwest, a highly anticipated game featuring coaches who have combined to appear in 25 regional semifinals since 1998. Michigan, which has won two NCAA tournament games for the first time since 1994, will have to get past top-seeded Kansas in the South. The Big Ten had seven
