Pope prays at Good Friday rite Pontiff recalls a sign of hope in Middle East

Students delight in prom anticipation To many girls, a prom dress is second only to a wedding dress in terms of importance. (Or at least, it seems that way at the time.) Troy High School senior Marisa Mowery is well aware. Her last year’s dress was stately, to say the least. “I ordered mine online last year and got it the day before prom last year, but it came too late, so I actually borrowed Mrs. Ohio’s dress,” Mowery said, explaining that the mother of her date last year, Justin Lewis, was a former beauty pageant winner.

Addicted moms get help, hope CINCINNATI (AP) — Nobody thinks methadone is good for a baby, but it’s better than heroin. That’s how Keean Lankford and Ronald Stokes started life: dependent on the opiate their mothers took to fight their addiction to heroin and prescription painkillers.

Lawmakers tighten belts amid budget cuts WASHINGTON (AP) — Members of Congress are traveling less and worrying more about meeting office salaries. Their aides are contending with long lines to get inside their offices and fewer prospects of a raise. Such are the indignities thrust upon the men and women who brought the country $85 billion in government spending cuts this month. There probably won’t be much sympathy for a senator or congressman making $174,000 a year who is in no danger of being furloughed or laid off, at least until the next election.

With torches lighting the way, the faithful carried a cross to different stations, where meditations and prayers were read out recalling the final

hours of Jesus’ life and his crucifixion. This year, the prayers were composed by young Lebanese, and many recalled the plight of minority Christians in the region, where wars have forced thousands to flee their homelands. The meditations called for an end to “violent fundamentalism,” terrorism and the “wars and violence which in our days devastate various countries in the Middle East.” Francis, who became pope

Christians mark Jesus’ crucifixion on Good Friday JERUSALEM (AP) — Hundreds of Christians streamed through the cobblestone alleyways of Jerusalem’s Old City on Friday, hoisting wooden crosses and chanting prayers to mark the crucifixion of Jesus. Throngs of pilgrims walked a traditional Good Friday procession that retraces Jesus’ steps along the Via Dolorosa, Latin for the “Way of Suffering.” They followed his 14 stations, saying a prayer at each and ending at the ancient Holy Sepulcher church. the route, Along Franciscan friars in brown robes chanted prayers in

Christian worshippers carry a cross toward the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, traditionally believed by many to be the site of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, during the Good Friday procession in Jerusalem’s Old City, Friday.

Latin and explained the different stations to crowds through a megaphone. Leonard Mary, a priest from Irondale, Alabama, was dressed as Jesus wearing a crown of thorns. He was flanked by men posing as Roman soldiers and had fake blood dripping down his chest as he lugged a giant cross down the street. “The most perfect love that was ever seen in the world was when Jesus died for us. He showed us the perfection of love,” the priest said. Good Friday events began with a morning service at the cavernous Holy

Sepulcher, which was built on the place where tradition holds that Jesus was crucified, briefly entombed and resurrected. Clergy entered through the church’s large wooden doors as worshippers prayed in the church courtyard. Later Friday, a service was due in Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity, built atop the traditional site of Jesus’ birth. Christians believe Jesus was crucified on Good Friday and resurrected on Easter Sunday. Roman Catholic and Protestant congregations that observe the new, Gregorian calendar, are marking holy week.

hoped for cooperation. The Vatican’s efforts to reconcile with the Islamic world have not been welcomed by all. Italy’s most famous Muslim convert to Catholicism, Magdi Allam, announced last week he was leaving the church because of its “soft” stance on Islam. Allam was baptized by Benedict XVI in 2008 during the high-profile Easter Vigil service when the pope traditionally baptizes a handful of adults. There has been no Vatican comment on his about-face. Thousands of people packed the Colosseum and surrounding areas for the nighttime procession, holding candles wrapped in paper globes as Francis sat in silent prayer as a giant torch-lit crucifix twinkled nearby. Some in the crowd had Lebanese flags around their shoulders in an indication of the special role Lebanese faithful played in this year’s procession. has the Lebanon largest percentage of Christians in the Middle East nearly 40 percent of the country’s 4 million people, with Maronite Catholics the largest sect. As civil war has raged in neighboring Syria,

Lebanon’s Christian community has been divided between supporters and opponents of Syrian President Bashar Assad. Overall, Christians in the Middle East have been uneasy as the Arab Spring has led to the strengthening of Islamist groups in most countries that have uprisings. experienced Thousands of Christians have fled the region a phenomenon that the Vatican has lamented, given Christianity’s roots in the Holy Land. “How sad it is to see this blessed land suffer in its children, who relentlessly tear one another to pieces and die!” said one of the Good Friday meditations. “It seems that nothing can overcome evil, terrorism, murder and hatred.” Francis picked up on that message, saying Christ’s death on the cross is “the answer which Christians offer in the face of evil, the evil that continues to work in us and around us.” “Christians must respond to evil with good, taking the cross upon themselves as Jesus did,” he said. At the end of the ceremony, a male choir sang a

haunting Arabic hymn, a reflection of the Eastern rite influence that infused the ceremony. On Saturday, Francis presides over the solemn Easter Vigil ceremony in St. Peter’s Basilica and on Sunday, he celebrates Easter Mass and delivers an important speech. Usually the pope also issues Easter greetings in dozens of languages. In his two weeks as pope, Francis’ discomfort with speaking in any language other than Italian has become apparent. The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said Friday “we’ll have to see” what Francis does with the multilingual greetings. The Good Friday procession was conducted entirely in Italian, whereas in years past the core elements recounting what happens at each station would be recited in a variety of languages.



Cuts return home. “I’m more productive here when I’m not rushing to get home,” he added. Campbell said other “little things” he is doing to economize include reducing the office phone bill, cutting off magazine and newspaper subscriptions, and using email rather than letters to communicate with voters. Rep. Luke Messer, a freshman Republican from Indiana, said he hired fewer people when he came to Washington because “we essentially began the term knowing there was a high possibility of a sequester” Washington-speak for the automatic spending cuts. So far, congressional staffers appear to have escaped the furloughs that are likely to send thousands of public servants home without pay for several workdays over the next six months and disrupt some government services. “I hope to avoid that,” said Rep Jared Polis, D-Colo., “but we will take any steps to ensure we don’t exceed our budget.” Under House rules, a lawmaker must pay for excess spending out of his or her own pocket. The fiscal pressures are less strong in the Senate, where senators have staff

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration's newest anti-pollution plan would ping American drivers where they wince the most: at the gas pump. That makes arguments weighing the cost against the health benefits politically potent. The proposal to reduce sulfur in gasoline and tighten auto emission standards, released Friday, would raise gasoline prices by less than a penny per gallon, the Environmental Protection Agency says. But the oil industry points to its own study putting the cost between 6 and 9 cents a gallon. — Staff and wire reports

budgets about double the amount of the $1.3 million average in the House and where the office cuts ordered because of the sequester were limited to 5 percent. While staffers still have their jobs, they may have a harder time getting to them. Security officials have cut costs by closing 10 entrances and several side streets around the Capitol complex, creating long lines to get through screening stations. People “have started to adjust to those changes at the entrances,” although it is still a challenge on busy days, said U.S. Senate Sergeant at Arms Terrance Gainer. Gainer, who oversees nearly 1,000 security and administrative employees, said he hopes to abide by the 5 percent sequester cut without layoffs by enlisting 70 or 80 people for a voluntary retirement program.

just over two weeks ago, chose, however, to stress Christians’ positive relations with Muslims in the region in his brief comments at the end of the ceremony. Standing on a platform overlooking the procession route, Francis recalled Benedict XVI’s 2012 visit to Lebanon when “we saw the beauty and the strong bond of communion joining Christians together in that land and the friendship of our Muslim brothers and sisters and so many others.” “That occasion was a sign to the Middle East and to the whole world, a sign of hope,” he said. Friday’s outreach followed Francis’ eyebrowraising gesture a day earlier, when he washed and kissed the feet of two women, one a Muslim, in the Holy Thursday ritual that commemorates Jesus’ washing of his apostles’ feet during the Last Supper before his crucifixion. Breaking with tradition, Francis performed the ritual on 12 inmates at a juvenile detention center, rather than in Rome’s grand St. John Lateran

basilica, where in the past, 12 priests have been chosen to represent Jesus’ disciples. Before he became pope, the former Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio long cultivated warm relations with Muslim leaders in his native Argentina. In one of his first speeches as pope, he called for the church and the West in general to “intensify” relations with the Muslim world. The Vatican’s relations with Islam hit several bumps during Benedict XVI’s papacy, when he outraged Muslims with a 2006 speech quoting a Byzantine emperor as saying some of Prophet Muhammad’s teachings were “evil and inhuman.” And in 2011, the pre-eminent institute of Islamic learning in the Sunni Muslim world, Cairo’s AlAzhar institute, froze dialogue with the Vatican to protest Benedict’s call for greater protection of Christians in Egypt. However, Francis’ past outreach to the Muslim community in Argentina seems to have changed that. Al-Azhar’s chief imam, Sheik Ahmed elTayyib, sent a message of congratulations to Francis on his election and said he

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


Social media can have major impact on religion BY JOSH JONES Edison Community College Student Social media has inspired many individuals’ lives. Through MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram, our culture and society have become overly obsessed with stalking and searching into one another’s lives to find anything others may post online for the entire world to see. Willingly, they may reply or choose to only “follow” or “like.” Religion and irreligion has affected these social media sites very drastically. Within seconds, any user can willingly post a blog, create a page or tweet for all one’s followers to see — lest the page be private or protected. There is a multitude of different sites working with religion in one aspect or another. On Facebook, more than 300,000 individuals “like” the page Christianity. Fortunately, the numbers are increasing. Through a multitude of different pages, individuals also can “like” an agnostic or atheist page. Numbers show more than 200,000 individuals “share” or “like” these different viewpoints. These numbers are only increasing as well. Statistics and studies have shown that over the middle of the century, faith-based believers will be outnumbered by non-believers. With Twitter, any user can “follow” one person or a larger point of view, such as different religious views. Posts can be “retweeted” or favorited with a click of a mouse. Examples like @TheTweetOfGod or @ChristianityHub are only two examples where the user may post any religious idea, whether it be joking or more serious and factual. Other more interesting examples like @Agnosticism, @AtheismNews, and @WeAreAtheism contain different viewpoints of these two irreligious views, where users are welcome to bash Christianity, prove certain specific points and rant to the World Wide Web if they so choose. Using social media for religious or irreligious viewpoints can be very positive. Pastors, preachers or priests are able to create pages, create groups and, best of all, advertise the church body they represent. Social media can be used for Christian and other faith-based believers around the world to confess sins, weep and gnash teeth together with friends or followers, create awesome prayer chains for loved ones and even go to the extreme of gaining forgiveness using any available online messaging service with the help of an online Holy Bible. With the busyness of individuals’ every day lives, it can be excruciating to spend an hour or so in church. Lenora Rand, from the Christian Century Foundation, put it quite simply when she stated, “We live in a world in which it takes a lot of commitment to carve out an hour or so on Sunday morning to meet with others for worship.” Non-faith based believers can also use social media sites to their advantages in positive ways. Social media also is very negatively influenced with religious and irreligious views. Although a relationship with God is more of a personal choice, social media can create religion to be less personal with God or less personal with any form of worship. With social media, individuals are able to confess their love for religion or deny that there is such a God for all Internet viewers to see. Also, with social media sites, religious and irreligious individuals can fall into certain traps that could cause serious harm in their personal lives, from a long-run perspective. Using social media in our everyday lives can be helpful, but also hurtful. Although we cannot live without technology, we should keep our faith-based beliefs and our own opinions to ourselves personally, whatever the cost.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Sacramento Bee on Vatican recognizing rise of the Americas: By selecting Jorge Mario Bergoglio as the next pope of the Roman Catholic Church, cardinals have sent an important signal to the Americas — and particularly to Latin America, where 39 percent of all Catholics worldwide live. Bergoglio, who will be called Pope Francis, was previously the archbishop of Buenos Aires. He is the first pope to be selected from anywhere in the Americas, and the first Jesuit tapped to be papal leader. While he may be more conservative than many American

Catholics and Jesuits would prefer, it is significant that the Vatican has recognized the rise of Latin America, which for too long been overlooked by this and many other international institutions. According to 2011 data from the Pew Forum, more than 425 million Catholics live in Latin America, with the largest populations in Brazil, Mexico and Argentina. The son of Italian immigrants, Bergoglio is said to lead an austere life. In Argentina, he worked to restore the church’s reputation after a murderous military junta in the 1970s was allowed

to “disappear” tens of thousands of leftists and people suspected of being opponents. Yet it remains to be seen if the 76-year-old pope, the 266th pontiff, will be any more committed or effective than his predecessor in slimming down the Curia and moving the church into a modern age. Yet both of the hemispheres are rapidly changing and, on many issues, the church is decades behind. Will Francis work to change that? The answer, at this point, will await moments of clarity that have been absent during the closed-door conclave.

American jurisprudence set by the polls During two days of debate over gay marriage, the Supreme Court considered technical matters of standing, the nature of marriage and constitutional rights, the social science of gay parenting and much else. The response of top liberal commentators was, Please, don't bore us with the details. Just get on with it. What matters is that the cause of gay marriage is righteous — and, oh yeah, gaining in the polls. For the left, the nine justices are bit actors in a real-life episode of "The West Wing," where truth, justice and progressivism always prevail. The Constitution is an incidental, a prop. Maureen Dowd, as usual, perfectly reflected the liberal id. "Their questions," she wrote scornfully of the justices, "reflected a unanimous craven impulse: How do we get out of this?" "Getting out of it" is another way to put "leaving the question to the elected branches of government." Dowd complained that the justices acted like "fuddy-duddies." Yes, if only our robed masters were cooler. Surely, if they had Anna Wintour in for a working lunch at the court's chambers, all this unpleasantness could be worked out quickly. Dowd scorned

Rich Lowry Troy Daily News Guest Columnist the court proceedings for their lack of emotion. How bitterly disappointing it must be to her that even Sonia Sotomayor, selected by the president in part for her "empathy," asked questions relating to the law. In his dispatch, Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank struck a similar tone. He wrote, disapprovingly, "The question is whether the court forces gay-marriage activists to win the right state-by-state." If that is really the question, why should it even be a question? Since when is it an imposition to advance your cause democratically, especially when you are absolutely certain you are going to win? Supporters of gay marriage always cite the shifting polls, as if they are relevant to a deliberation over whether gay marriage is

mandated by the Constitution. The Republican supporters of gay marriage are no better than the liberals. On MSNBC's "Morning Joe," former McCain campaign manager Steve Schmidt, a signatory on a Republican pro-gay marriage brief, confidently predicted that a gay-marriage referendum would pass in California in a presidential election year. Can't we wait to have the court impose gay marriage until we're certain a referendum would pass in an off-year election, too? His former McCain campaign colleague and fellow signatory Nicolle Wallace appeared on "Fox News Sunday." "More than 60 percent of all Americans, everyone, supports marriage equality," she said. Wallace was apparently referring to an ABC News/ Washington Post poll that showed 58 percent support for gay marriage, which technically is not more, but less than 60 percent. This happens to be the best result in any of the recent polls for gay marriage. Her point would have been considerably attenuated if she had said, "The most recent Pew poll has 49-44 percent favor gay marriage and the Fox poll 4946 percent support, slim pluralities that mean ... the court ... must ... act ... now."

The most telling moment in the argument over Proposition 8 prohibiting the official recognition of gay marriage in California came when Justice Antonin Scalia asked pro-gay-marriage lawyer Ted Olson when it became unconstitutional not to recognize gay marriage. Olson couldn't answer without appearing ridiculous, either by saying our marriage laws have been unconstitutional since the passage of the 14th Amendment in 1868 or by picking some arbitrary contemporary date. Olson responded that it became unconstitutional not to officially recognize gay marriages as part of "an evolutionary cycle." As a matter of constitutional law, this answer is completely inadequate. Constitutional rights don't evolve with public opinion. As a reply to the political question of when gay marriage began to get traction, it is apt. In this context, you can indeed just look at the polls. But they have nothing to do with the Supreme Court and everything to do with the political process, even if its supporters would prefer not to be bothered. Rich Lowry can be reached via e-mail:

Keean was born addicted to methadone that Dougan was using to fight her addiction to heroin. our young children. “We went from just knowing we had women who were using drugs to being able to help them,” she added. In fiscal 2008, HOPE was involved in 44 deliveries. Last fiscal year that jumped to 94 deliveries. The program is on pace to help more than 100 women this year. Until now, outcomes weren’t tracked, but a March of Dimes grant allowed the program to hire a community health worker in February who will follow up with the women for a year after delivery. Pregnant women in the program are directed to methadone treatment centers to kill the craving for more dangerous drugs such as heroin and prescription painkillers, Wedig said. The babies, though, are born methadone dependent. Some babies show relatively few symptoms and don’t need treatment relat-

ed to methadone, but others exhibit signs of addiction. In those cases, the babies can spend three to four weeks in the intensive-care nursery while they’re weaned off methadone with smaller and smaller doses of the drug. “Methadone attaches to the same receptors (as heroin or opioid painkillers), but for a longer period of time, so it stops the craving for heroin and prevents withdrawal effects,” Wedig said. “But it’s still a drug with lots of bad side effects.” Patients don’t get the same euphoria from it, so they can maintain a normal routine. The babies also get what Wedig calls “environmental treatment” cuddling, quiet surroundings and low light to help ease withdrawal. For some moms, the infant is a motivator to take back control of their lives, Wedig said. Others

CINCINNATI (AP) — Nobody thinks methadone is good for a baby, but it’s better than heroin. That’s how Keean Lankford and Ronald Stokes started life: dependent on the opiate their mothers took to fight their addiction to heroin and prescription painkillers. Their mothers are in Good Samaritan Hospital’s HOPE program Helping Opiate-addicted Pregnant women Evolve which hospital officials started five years ago as a way to help drug-dependent mothers get clean. “These babies pull at your heartstrings,” said Dr. Kathy Wedig, the hospital’s director of neonatal followup. “You care for them and you think, ‘This is not right.’” In the Faculty Medical Center at Good Samaritan Hospital, Priscilla Conley and Tosha Hill give hope to drug-addicted mothers-tobe who want a better life for their babies. Doctors do check-ups, and then Conley and Hill direct women to drug treatment programs and connect the mothers to services such as counseling, housing and financial support. It works because the help comes in a nonjudgmental setting, said Conley, substance abuse coordinator for Good Samaritan Hospital’s perinatal programs. “Heroin is definitely an epidemic, and it’s going to take the whole community to improve the lives of these women,” said Hill, HOPE’s perinatal social worker. “Working together to help moms become sober will enhance the lives of

BYU-bound Emery off on mission trip at 18 ALPINE, Utah (AP) — Nick Emery a three-time Utah state champion and two-time state high school player of the year was courted by college basketball super-powers UCLA, Kansas and North Carolina. But the 6-foot-2-inch point guard spurned them all, and won’t be playing basketball anytime soon. Emery is just weeks away from starting a two-year Mormon mission to Germany. The Brigham Young University-bound Emery is not the first elite Mormon athlete to put his career on hold for a mission, but he is among the very first who will leave right after high school at 18 under new rules announced last fall by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

By lowering the minimum missionary age for men to 18, from 19, Emery and other Mormon college athletes can navigate around the cumbersome path generations of Mormon athletes who came before them had to maneuver. The age for women was dropped to 19, from 21. Until now, Mormon athletes had to play or redshirt for one year after high school until they turned 19. After a two-year hiatus, they come back to complete their careers. By being able to go on a mission first, Emery said he will start his BYU career more mature and with better leadership skills. “Two years is a long time to mature and really figure out who I am,” said the 18year-old Emery. “This is a big

bonus. You can go straight out and get those two years done and then you have four straight years in college.” The change in the minimum age, the first since 1960, already has sent ripples across Mormon culture, affecting college enrollments, and likely how young people date, marry and start families. The effects are most evident in Utah, where 1.9 million Mormons live and the home of the church’s worldwide headquarters. It completely alters the landscape for Mormon college athletes, giving them another option as they consider their own physical and mental maturity and try to optimize playing time. Five months after the surprise announcement

from LDS officials, BYU basketball coach Dave Rose said it appears that most basketball players will go straight on a mission out of high school. The change will lead to some extra juggling of the roster at BYU in the coming years, but should reap long-term benefits for the Mormon-owned university in Provo, Utah. “The continuity of them coming in and being here for four or five consecutive years will hopefully help us manage our roster a lot better,” said Rose, BYU head coach since 2005. Though the church lowered the minimum age, LDS church leaders emphasized that each person should carefully assess his or her situation. That’s what BYUbound Eric Mika did before

he ultimately opted to stick to his original plan and play a year before going on mission at 19. Rose said Mika made a good decision. Not only will he have a chance to play right away with several BYU big men graduating, but he will benefit from another year of competition after sitting out his junior season due to having transferred high schools. For Emery, though, going early was an easy decision and one that Rose said will benefit him. BYU already has several talented guards on next year’s team, meaning playing time would have been difficult. After the Emery announcement, quickly set into motion a plan to graduate early. He’ll

enter the Missionary Training Center on May 1, and head off to serve in Frankfurt, Germany, about six weeks later. That puts him back home in May of 2015 six months before the start of basketball season. Under the old rules, the only athletes able to go on a mission straight out of high school were those who were already 19, meaning they almost always had August or September birthdays. That brought them back from their missions in the fall and made it difficult to get in basketball shape for the next season. Rose predicts most players will follow Emery’s lead and go in the spring, which should make the transition back into college basketball much smoother.

Partner must learn to work on his personal bad habits Dear Annie: I'm in love with a wonderful man who has a couple of habits I can't seem to get past no matter how often I tell myself they aren't important. My partner is 47, smokes heavily, does not exercise and spends a good part of each day playing online poker. I am by no means a health fanatic or a model of productivity, but I do my best to stay in shape and live a relatively healthy, active life. His habits don't hurt me personally, but I can't help finding them distasteful and a turn-off. And that's the last thing I want to feel about someone I'm in love with. I also believe in letting people be who they are. So am I even within my rights asking him to change these habits "or else"? Or am I being too demanding, considering his otherwise excellent qualities? I'm afraid that the way I feel about these quirks will eventually overshadow the beautiful, positive feelings I have for him. That is depressing to contemplate. — Hoping for Change Dear Hoping: These "quirks" do affect you if you live together or share finances. Secondhand smoke can be deadly for you, and someone who plays online poker might have a gambling problem. You cannot force a person to stop smoking, but you can refuse to live in that environment. You also cannot demand that he stop gambling, but if he is addicted and unwilling to quit, you will have an ongoing issue about money. He may have wonderful qualities that you appreciate, but we don't see him as a long-term partner unless he is willing to work on these things. Dear Annie: I'm 12 years old and started middle school in the fall. I've begun hanging out with a group of four other girls. I never really talked to them until this year. These girls have been together since kindergarten, and it seems that one of them doesn't fully accept me. She has put up a wall between the other girls and me, and I doubt she'll be ready to take it down for a long time. I'd like to be fully accepted and want to tell them that, but I don't want to be pushy and unkind. What do I do? — On the Wrong Side of the Wall Dear Wrong Side: You seem to have a solid grasp of the situation, but we don't recommend you pit yourself against the other girl. She has "seniority," and her friends will back her position if forced to take sides. Instead, get to know her better. Find something you admire about her, and tell her. She needs to see you as an ally and not as a threat to her position within the group. It will take a little while, but in the process, you could be making a friend for life. Dear Annie: Years ago, I could have written the letter from "Tired Daughter," whose mother is an alcoholic. Setting boundaries is good advice. My parents divorced to protect my younger brothers from my mother's drinking and bipolar behavior. When I had kids, I would never leave them with my mother or force them to visit. They saw her occasionally, and I found that she was content simply to hear about their accomplishments and receive occasional pictures to show off. Sometimes Mom would call me, drunk and swearing. If she would not stop, I would hang up. After a few times of that, she no longer called when she was inebriated. I continued to visit her weekly and had a fairly good relationship within the necessary restrictions. When she died, I had no regrets. Tell "Tired" not to listen to Mom's negative stuff. She can change the subject or try to reason with her. If it's a bad day and that doesn't work, leave. I hope this helps. You can't control her, but boundaries help. — Been There Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Knickknacks might get whacked in the washer Dear Heloise: I would like to add a comment to the suggestion on washing knickknacks in the dishwasher that I read in The Washington Post. Please be careful that there is no gold or silver trim on them and that they can withstand the heat in the dishwasher. There are only two of us in our household, and we also frequently run out of dishes before we can fill up the dishwasher. Our best set of dishes has silver on the edges and cannot be washed in the dishwasher. (Heloise here: Older and delicate items should be handwashed, but modern pieces usually can be put in the dish-

Hints from Heloise Columnist washer safely.) I also have learned that many pots and pans cannot be placed in the dishwasher (if they have wooden knobs or handles — Heloise) because the heat will crack or splinter them and the handles. So, we sometimes run the appliance at less than full. Or we take back out

the few dishes that we need and rewash them by hand. — Pauline Lee, Bowie, Md. Thanks for sharing your hints. Many times it’s the highheat water temperature or hot drying cycle that can cause damage. When the subject of washing knickknacks in the dishwasher comes up, we chuckle in Heloise Central. One of my assistants put carved doves in the dishwasher (she was newly married), and when she opened the dishwasher, they were gone! They had dissolved with the hot water. So, always think before putting items (especially wooden or other specialty pieces) in the

dishwasher. — Heloise PET PAL Dear Readers: Harold and Eula McChristian of Laneville, Texas, sent a photo of their adorable miniature Yorkshire terrier, Pebbles, sitting in a cocoa cup. She sure is a super cutie! To see her, visit and click on “Pets.” Why not take a minute and send or e-mail a photo of your special pet that you would like to share?

Saturday, March 30, 2013











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, March 31, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a wonderful day to enjoy the company of others. People are attracted to your positive energy and genuine enthusiasm. (Make the most of this.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might be attracted to spiritualism or mystical ideas today. Privately, your idealism is aroused, which is why you will put the needs and wishes of others before your own. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) All group interactions will be positive today. In fact, you can benefit from the advice of others, so keep your ears open. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) People in authority might praise you or even give you a raise or some kind of advantage today. Your aroused ambition is beginning to pay off. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Travel for pleasure will delight you today. Some of you might fall in love with someone from a different culture or another country. It’s an exciting, stimulating day! VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You definitely can benefit from the wealth and resources of others today, so keep your pockets open. Don’t worry about attached strings; this influence benefits you. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Work in conjunction with others to accomplish what you want today. People will help you in practical ways. Social interaction with others also will be positive. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Don’t hesitate to ask for the support of co-workers, because you likely will get it today. In fact, a work-related romance might begin. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Romance, love affairs, vacations, playful times with children and sports are beautifully blessed today. Make sure you set aside some time to have fun and laugh it up. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Many of you will explore real-estate opportunities today. Others will work to make where you live more attractive. It’s a great day to entertain at home. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Those of you who write, teach, act, sell, market or edit for a living can make great headway today. You have a grace of speech, imaginative ideas and a wonderful style of presenting yourself. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is an excellent day for business and commerce. Now is the time to act on some of the ideas you were toying with yesterday. See what works and what doesn’t. YOU BORN TODAY You have original ideas, high ideals and will fight for your beliefs. Many of you enter the political arena because you want to make the world a better place. You’re a natural leader who can live alone or be with others. You are intelligent, tenacious and quietly affectionate. Work hard to build or construct something this year because your rewards soon will follow.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Saturday, March 30, the 89th day of 2013. There are 276 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On March 30, 1981, President Ronald Reagan escaped an attempt on his life outside a Washington, D.C., hotel, where he was shot and seriously wounded by John W. Hinckley Jr. Also wounded were White House press secretary James Brady, Secret Service

agent Timothy McCarthy, and District of Columbia police officer Thomas Delahanty. On this date: In 1822, Florida became a United States territory. In 1867, U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward reached agreement with Russia to purchase the territory of Alaska for $7.2 million. In 1870, the 15th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which prohibited denying citizens the right to vote

and hold office on the basis of race, was declared in effect by Secretary of State Hamilton Fish. Texas was readmitted to the Union. In 1945, the Soviet Union invaded Austria during World War II. Ten years ago: A Palestinian suicide bomber wounded some 30 people outside a packed cafe in northern Israel, an attack the Islamic Jihad called “Palestine’s gift to the heroic people of Iraq.”

FBI ‘flying saucers’ in New Mexico memo bureau’s most viewed ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A single-page FBI memo relaying a vague and unconfirmed report of flying saucers found in New Mexico in 1950 has become the most popular file in the bureau’s electronic reading room. The memo, dated March 22, 1950, was sent by FBI Washington, D.C., field

office chief Guy Hottel to then-Director J. Edgar Hoover. According to the FBI, the document was first made public in the late 1970s and more recently has been available in the “Vault,” an electronic reading room launched by the agency in 2011, where it has become the most popu-

lar item, viewed nearly 1 million times. The Vault contains around 6,700 public documents. Vaguely written, the memo describes a story told by an unnamed third party who claims an Air Force investigator reported that three flying saucers were recovered in New Mexico, though the memo

Airports suing FAA over planned tower shutdowns CHICAGO (AP) — Airport operators are mounting a legal challenge to the Federal Aviation Administration’s decision to cut funding for 149 air traffic control towers, accusing the agency of violating federal law meant to ensure major changes at airports do not erode safety. Several airports are now asking a federal court to halt the plan and compel the FAA to more carefully study the potential safety impact, said Carl Olson, director of the Central Illinois Regional Airport in Bloomington, Ill. He warned that without a more cautious approach, lives will be put at risk by cuts that he contends are arbitrary and the result of reckless political brinkmanship in Washington. “I think everybody’s going to realize what the industry knows, and that is there is a razor thin margin of error in aviation and any diminishment of safety is going to have an immediate and cascading effect,” Olson said in an interview Friday. “And all the talk to the contrary won’t change that fact.” Olson’s airport is among the latest to file a lawsuit this week with the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington. The others are Spokane Airports in Washington state, and the operators of Florida airports in Naples, Ormond

Beach and Punta Gorda. The court combined the suits into a single case Thursday. FAA spokeswoman Laura Brown said Friday that the agency could not comment on the pending litigation. The agency’s administrator, Michael Huerta, has stressed that safety remains the FAA’s top priority even as it is forced by the budget cutting known as sequestration to trim $637 million for the rest of the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30. The FAA said it had no choice but to subject most of its 47,000 employees, including tower controllers, to periodic furloughs and to close air traffic facilities run by contractors at 149 small airports with lighter traffic. The first of those closures will happen April 7. Olson’s airport is slated to lose its funding May 5. The tower shutdowns will not mean that airports have to close. All pilots are required to know how to land at un-towered airports and to practice those procedures, which include communicating with other pilots over a shared radio frequency. But airport directors, pilots and others in the aviation sector say stripping away an extra layer of safety during the most critical stages of flight will elevate risks and at the very least

slow years of progress that made the U.S. aviation network the safest in the world. Lawrence Krauter, director of Spokane International Airport, said he expects more airports and possibly trade associations to join the legal challenge. He said the tower closures amount to one of the most significant changes to the national air system’s safety network in recent history and deserve to be studied carefully. “No one’s going to tell you … that there aren’t some contract towers out there that could be closed,” Krauter said. “What we’re saying is that we think that there needs to be a more reasoned and appropriate process.” Spokane’s second and smaller airport, Felts Field, is set to lose its tower funding May 5. Like many of the airports losing funding, it has a busy flight school and serves the area’s medical air evacuation operation in addition to handling private aircraft. Local airport authorities have been scrambling to find the money to keep their towers running once the federal funding runs out. And several of the airport operators wrote to Huerta to ask that he halt the plans and detail exactly what study and review processes, if any, the FAA has carried out.

doesn’t say exactly where in the state. The FBI indexed the report for its files but did not investigate further the name of an “informant” reporting some of the information is blacked out in the memo. The memo offers several bizarre details. Inside each saucer, “each one was occupied by

three bodies of human shape but only 3 feet tall, dressed in metallic cloth of a very fine texture,” according to the report. “Each body was bandaged in a manner similar to the blackout suits used by speed fliers and test pilots.” The saucers were found in New Mexico because the government had a high-

powered radar set up in the area and it is believed the radar interfered with the controlling mechanism of the UFOs, according to the informant. The FBI filed the typed page neatly away 63 years ago at its headquarters and “no further evaluation was attempted.”

Several Trojans playing different spots BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor


Last season, Troy had four tennis players reach the district level. Half of those Trojans are coming back this year. And even though having that experience at the top of the lineup will undoubtedly help the Trojans this season, there will be plenty of adjustments to make as many of Troy’s players will be moving into new positions — and they haven’t had much time to try them out in the preseason thanks to the extend-

ed winter weather. The only Trojan in a completely familiar spot will be sophomore Luke Oaks, who played first singles all last season before teaming up with graduate Reid Wynkoop to play doubles in the postseason. The duo was one victory short of reaching the state tournament. “Luke to me looks like he’s improved,” Troy coach Mark Goldner said. “He’s improved his serve, and with a year of experience

Ohio State guard Aaron Craft, left, and Arizona guard Nick Johnson scramble for the ball during the second half of a West Regional semifinal in the NCAA men's college basketball tournament, Thursday in Los Angeles. Ohio State won 73-70.

Let’s dance Buckeyes, Shockers to clash in Elite 8 LOS ANGELES (AP) — During Ohio State’s journey to the Final Four last season, Aaron Craft learned the importance of focusing on the next 40 minutes, not the three-week trip. So Craft didn’t realize the highest seeds in the West Regional were dropping like dominoes until earlier this week. He purposely didn’t learn much about ninth-seeded Wichita State until Thursday

night, when the powerful Buckeyes found out they’re facing the unheralded Shockers on Saturday for another ticket to the Final Four. “I think that really helped a lot just getting caught up in the moment and thinking about where you are and what you need to do to get out,” Ohio State’s star point guard said. “We watch all the games. Obviously we’re basketball fans, but I kept saying, ‘Where is this

team? Which bracket is this in? What is that?’ It wasn’t until after we played Iowa State that I realized our bracket was being destroyed number-wise, and really realizing how tough every team was.” Craft’s point is a theme echoed on both sides of Staples Center on Friday during workouts for the final game in a regional that emphasized the

On a windy morning at spring training, a trio of Phillies catchers met behind the batting cage to shoot the breeze. The topic? Interleague intrigue, right from the get-go. “We were just talking about that in batting practice that it’s a little weird to face the American League so early,” All-Star Carlos Ruiz said. “But it’s a different schedule this year.” Sure is. Josh Hamilton and the Los Angeles Angels visit Cincinnati in an opener that’s hardly traditional. Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers finish the season at Miami minus a designated hitter. Derek Jeter and the Yankees cross over to the National League each month, then host World Series champion San Francisco in late September. Just a guess New York fans will howl at the prospect of seeing Matt Cain and the pitching-rich Giants if a playoff spot is at stake. Add up the scattered AL vs. NL matchups, it’s like a miniWorld Series most every day. “It’s going to be totally different,” said Houston manager Bo Porter, one of six new skippers in the majors. Might as well blame Porter’s Astros, too. Their shift from the NL Central to the AL West left 15 teams in each league, creating all this havoc. Opening day is March 31 in Houston when Texas comes to town for a Sunday night start. That’s followed by AngelsReds on April 1. A few days later, Philadelphia plays its home opener against the Kansas City Royals. Just sounds jarring, doesn’t

Big-time Burke Burke, Wolverines stun Kansas in OT ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Trey Burke scored all 23 of his points after halftime, including a long, tying 3-pointer in the final seconds of regulation, and Michigan rallied to beat Kansas 87-85 in the South Regional semifinals Friday night. The fourth-seeded Wolverines wiped out a 10-point Kansas lead in the last 3 minutes of regulation, and Burke gave them their first lead since early in the game with another long 3 to open Michigan’s scoring in overtime. Michigan (29-7) reached the regional finals for the first time since the Fab Five era 19 years ago, the last time they were in the round of 16.

OSU defense relies on veteran secondary COLUMBUS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Safety Christian Bryant doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mince words. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s straight to the point, just like when he makes a tackle â&#x20AC;&#x201D; head first, shoulders square, legs churning, leaving a calling card for a wincing ball-carrier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m chasing a national championship,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m chasing.â&#x20AC;?

If Ohio State is to pursue such a lofty goal â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the Buckeyes are coming off a glittering 12-0 season â&#x20AC;&#x201D; then Bryant and a veteran secondary will likely be the ringleaders, so to speak. Ohio State may have big question marks on defense, but none of them come at the back end. Bryant, cornerback

Bradley Roby and safety C.J. Barnett comprise three of the four seniors on that side of the ball. No wonder the backfield figures to be a load-bearing wall for the rest of the unit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be our backbone this year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; me, Christian, C.J., Corey Brown,â&#x20AC;? said Roby, who flirted with jumping into

the NFL draft in January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been here for a long time. We know how things are going to go, how things should go. We just have to lead these young guys.â&#x20AC;? Barnett and Bryant are back to fill the safety spots. Doran Grant will get a long look at the other starting cornerback spot. Filling in behind them are Brown and several

youngsters, including two kids who are participating in spring workouts while other classmates are going to prom and planning graduation parties â&#x20AC;&#x201D; corners Eli Apple and Cam Burrows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em. I think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing at a reasonably high level for spring football,â&#x20AC;? cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs

said of his charges in his typical, raspy, half-yell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The young guys are getting a lot of reps. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got good leadership from Bradley Roby. And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re competing every day. I really like the work ethic. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very diligent and very serious about their business. And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be very, very good as time develops.â&#x20AC;?

Cardinals beat Ducks


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Louisville survived its first test. Russ Smith matched his career high with 31 points to lead three Cardinals in double figures, and topseeded Louisville showed it can win close games, too, beating Oregon 77-69 on Friday night. Kevin Ware added 11 and Gorgui Dieng had 10 points and nine rebounds for Louisville, which has won 13 straight. Coach Rick Pitino improved to 11-0 in the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We dug ourselves a pretty big hole and werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to come back,â&#x20AC;? Oregon coach Dana Altman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Louisville is a very good basketball team and very talented. Smith got going to the basket and we just never got him slowed down.â&#x20AC;? The 12th-seeded Ducks (28-9) at least made a game of it late. After Louisville went up 66-48 with 9:01 left, Oregon made six straight field goals to close to 70-64 the closest anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been to the Cardinals in a couple of weeks. But Kevin Ware scored on a layup and Chane Behanan threw down a monstrous dunk to put the game out of reach. Still, Oregon is only the second team to be within single digits at the buzzer during Louisvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run. Louisville (32-5) moves on to play the winner of Michigan State-Duke on Sunday, hoping to advance to the Final Four for the second straight year. E.J. Singlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15 points led five Ducks in double figures, and the Ducks had only 12 turnovers one fewer than the Cardinals. But Oregon could never recover from its poor first half, when the Ducks were plagued by foul trouble Johnathan Loyd had three before halftime and an off night by Damyean Dotson. The

â&#x2013; CONTINUED FROM 12 parity throughout college basketball when six of the top eight seeds lost on the first weekend. Anybody who tries to paint this matchup as David facing down Goliath will get polite disagreement from the supposed big guy and the alleged little guy alike. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not how college basketball works anymore, according to both Craft and Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall. Neither team has any doubt Wichita State (29-8) belongs on the same court with the mighty Buckeyes (29-7) for a chance to go to Atlanta. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to go out there and play our hearts out,â&#x20AC;? Wichita Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cleanthony Early said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So regardless if their facilities are a little bit bigger than ours, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to lace up their shoes just like us.â&#x20AC;? Sure, the Shockers canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t match Ohio Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial resources or alumni base. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got every-

thing else necessary to play with the Buckeyes for those 40 minutes and even pull off one more surprise in their charmed run through March. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I love is the fact theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not really bouncing off the wall,â&#x20AC;? Marshall said of his Shockers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They seem to be legitimately unsatisfied thus far. We know weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a great opponent and a tremendous challenge, but at the same time, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in that Elite Eight game. We have an opportunity, and our best is going to be hard to beat.â&#x20AC;? Wichita State is making its first regional finals appearance since 1981, looking for a spot in its first Final Four since the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only previous trip in 1965. The Shockersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 29 victories match the school record set just two years ago under Marshall, the low-profile, high-energy coach who spent part of Friday fending off questions about UCLAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job vacancy from eager Los Angeles reporters.

Louisville center Gorgui Dieng (10) drives to the basket against Oregon forward E.J. Singler during the first half of a regional semifinal in the NCAA college basketball tournament Friday in Indianapolis. freshman was huge in Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory over Saint Louis, scoring a career-high 23. But he was 0 for 6 in the first half, and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a field goal until midway through the second. He finished with 12 points on 5-of14 shooting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there in the first half,â&#x20AC;? Arsalan Kazemi said. The Cardinals were

barely tested in either of their first two games, beating North Carolina A&T by 31 and Colorado State by 26. They set an NCAA record with 20 steals against A&T, outrebounded one of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best rebounding teams in Colorado State and left both teams with ugly shooting lines. But the Cardinals were

tested many times Friday night. Peyton Siva spent the last 15:19 of the first half on the bench after picking up his second foul. But even without their floor general, the Cardinals didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss a beat thanks to Smith. He hit a 3 to spark a 14-3 run that put Louisville up 24-8, and the game seemed to be all but over.

â&#x2013; CONTINUED FROM 12 with Naadir Tharpe missing a running jumper at the buzzer. The Wolverines wiped out a 10-point Kansas lead on a 14-4 run in the final 2:52 of regulation. Burke had eight points, including two 3-pointers, in the stretch. Burke gave Michigan its first lead since early in the game with his long 3pointer to make it 79-78 early in overtime. Burke was scoreless in the first half for the Wolverines, then got his team going by scoring eight straight points early in the second half to momentarily cut the deficit to two. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the second half,

coach told me to be more aggressive so I looked for my shot more,â&#x20AC;? he said. But Kansas restored a 10-point lead built on dominating inside in the first half, this time with a 3-pointer and a tomahawk dunk on a breakaway by McLemore and a three-point play from Johnson. Johnson, who picked up three fouls in just three minutes of playing time in the first half, gave Kansas its biggest lead at 68-54 with a 3-pointer from the corner with just under 7 minutes left. Travis Releford had 16 points for the Jayhawks, while Jeff Withey had 12 points and eight rebounds.

No limits on Strasburg or the Nats this time around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited. I think everybody in the baseball world, not just us, is really excited to see him all year,â&#x20AC;? 20-year-old Washington star Bryce Harper said. Fans in Detroit, San Francisco and St. Louis can count on seeing familiar faces for a while. As a long, long spring training wound down, Tigers ace Justin Verlander, Giants MVP Buster Posey and St. Louis star Adam Wainwright signed long-term deals. In the meantime, teams are figuring out how to prepare for this funny season. Previously, Porter said, it was easy to plan for blocks of interleague games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of times, a National League team would call up a DH-type guy during that segment of their schedule,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to do because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have interleague taking place the entire course of the season.

Brothers Justin and B.J Upton wound up together in Atlantaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outfield. Kyle Lohse signed with Milwaukee a week before the opener. The Toronto Blue Jays, out of the postseason since winning their second straight title in 1993, made the boldest moves. They traded for reigning Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey, Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle and signed Melky Cabrera. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Talent alone doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win,â&#x20AC;? Blue Jays manager John Gibbons cautioned.

Tennis ■ CONTINUED FROM 12 under his belt, he knows what’s going on at the varsity level. He’s one of the better players in the area.” Fellow district qualifier Chris Schmitt — who qualified in doubles with graduate Ben Thompson, his first doubles partner during the regular season — returns also, but in a new position. After getting limited experience at third singles last season, Schmitt will begin the season at second singles. “That’s going to be an adjustment for Chris, playing second singles,” Goldner said. “Instead of serving every four games, he’ll be doing it every other game. He won’t have a partner to lean on at all. He’s going to have to learn to control his emotions out there, but if he does that, he can hopefully have a great senior season.” Also bumping up a spot will be the team of juniors Matt Alexander and Ian Stutz. After a year spent primarily at second doubles, the duo will be Troy’s first doubles team. “Matt and Ian got a lot of experience at second doubles, but stepping up to first is going to be an adjustment,” Goldner said. “They’re going to see a lot more harder-hit

balls, and they’re going to have to be more aggressive.” Stepping up to the varsity level will be sophomore Jesse Wright and junior Aaron Coon, who both played JV last year. Also new to the team will be freshmen Hidekacu Asami and Matt Schmitt. “We have eight players that will see varsity action this year,” Goldner said. “Right now with those four, Hide and Matt could play second doubles together, and they’ll both get chances at third singles, also. And Aaron and Jesse could end up teaming up with someone at second doubles, too. We’ll fit them in there and see how it goes.” And with Butler to contend with in Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division play, those adjustments will have to be made quickly. “Vandalia’s got everyone back,” Goldner said. “They’re loaded at all the singles spots, one, two and three, plus they’ve got their first doubles and maybe some of second doubles back, too. They could be the top team in the area, but Springboro’s got some kids back, too. “We’re a little younger this year, and we don’t have as many seniors. We’ll be young, but hope-

Graduating off that team were Darrin Grove, Austin Hemm, Brandon Bercot, Frankie Patrizio and Dale Lavey. Returning are Joye Hsiong and Luke Hanes. “We want to be competitive, continue to grow and improve as players and a team,” Retman said. “We want to enjoy the sport of tennis.” Retman hopes to finish in the middle of the GWOC North. • Lehman Lehman coach Kristy Sherman had 17 boys out for tennis this spring, including four lettermen off the team that finished 13-3 last season.

Verlander, Tigers reach 7-year, $180 million deal LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — For Justin Verlander, $180 million was enough. No need to wait two seasons, become a free agent and find out how much biggest baseball’s spenders would offer. “I wondered what it would be like to test free agency, but the pull of Detroit was too much,” the Tigers’ ace said Friday after agreeing to a sevenyear contract, the richest deal for a pitcher in baseball history. “Once spring training started I knew I wanted to stay.” Verlander’s deal broke the record for pitchers set just a month earlier when Seattle’s Felix Hernandez agreed to a $175 million, seven-year contract. “It’s a very exciting day,” Tigers President Dave Dombrowski said. “It’s a big day for us. He’s as fine a pitcher as there is in baseball. His record speaks for itself. He can be one of the greatest, if not

the greatest pitcher in Tiger history.” The 2011 AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner had been signed through 2014 under an $80 million, five-year contract paying him $20 million in each of the next two seasons. The new deal keeps those salaries and adds $140 million in guaranteed money: $28 million each season from 2015-19. It includes a $22 million option for 2020 that would become guaranteed if he finishes among the top five in 2019 Cy Young voting. The deal could be worth $202 million over eight seasons. “The city of Detroit is committed to winning,” he said. “I’m so excited to be playing in Detroit. I was never shy about saying I wanted to stay in Detroit. It’s tough to put into words how much I love Detroit. We have the best fans in baseball.”

We have 16 players out this season and look forward to our youth growing physically and mentally throughout the year.” Back for his senior season is Sam Bollinger, last year’s CBC Player of the Year and an All-District third team selection with a high school record of 6711. Sophomore Michael Keller — who was 20-1 last year — and junior Jacob Belcher (32-7 career) will also be competing for the top spot, with junior Hailey Winblad and senior Jon Lin possibly seeing time at singles, also. Both of the Devils’ doubles teams graduated from last season, but experienced players could fill those voids. Lin and fellow seniors Adam Southers, Doug Lehmkuhl and Jack Pelisher, as well as Winblad and a host of sophomores and incoming freshmen will be competing for those four spots. • Piqua Deborah Retman takes

Qualifier in lead as McIlroy barely makes cut HUMBLE, Texas (AP) — Steve Wheatcroft hates going to Monday qualifiers. He was reminded Friday why they can be worth it. Wheatcroft, who narrowly qualified for the Houston Open at the start of the week, ran off three straight birdies early in his round and kept bogeys off his card for a second straight 5-under 67. That gave him a one-shot lead over D.A. Points and Jason Kokrak going into the weekend at Redstone Golf Club. Rory McIlroy also will be around for two more days, but just barely. In only his 10th full round of the year, McIlroy walked onto the seventh green his 16th hole of the day and saw that he was tied for 77th. He twoputted from 85 feet on the fringe for birdie on his next hole, and then safely

found the green at the par3 ninth for a 70. By the end of the day, McIlroy made the cut on the number. “It a weekend where I can have a couple more rounds and try and get confidence in what I’m doing,” McIlroy. His big surprise came later. McIlroy, feeling as though he needs more rounds to get ready for the Masters, decided to enter the Texas Open next week. Phil Mickelson also made the cut on the number after a bogey on the last hole for a 71. Mickelson, who has played the Masters with two drivers in the bag, decided to play Redstone on Friday with two 3-woods in the bag, though one of them is so strong it acts like a driver. “If I can play like I did the back nine, I’m going to give myself a lot of birdie chances,” Mickelson said.

We are looking for drivers to deliver the Troy Daily News on Daily, Sundays, holidays and on a varied as needed basis.

Drivers must have: Valid drivers license Reliable transportation State minimum insurance

Please call 937-440-5263 or 937-440-5260 and leave a message with your name, address and phone number. Your phone call will be returned in the order in which it is received.

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.

MARCH 30, 2013 How to help your doctor help you

For their skills, commitment and compassion, we make a special effort to honor our physicians on Doctorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Day. Through every stage of life, from prenatal to geriattric care, we rely on these dedicaed men and women to meet our healthcare needs. Their service greatly enhances the quality of life in our own community and around the world. In appreciation of their tireless efforts to help humanity, these area businesses pay tribute to doctors everywhere.

You might sometimes feel rushed through an appointment if your doctor gives an impression of busyness or begins to ask questions before youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve finished presenting your complaints. But sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply a matter of efficiency: the physician has a tight schedule, many patients, and needs you to get to the point right away so that he or she can help you feel better fast. Here are two ways to help maximize those precious minutes of a medical consultation: LIST YOUR SYMPTOMS AND ORGANIZE YOUR QUESTIONS Before you meet with your doctor, write down exactly what you want him or her to know, including the exact symptoms youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re experiencing (location and degree of pain or discomfort, possible linked symptoms, observations), any relevant family history, and any other medications or herbal remedies you are taking. If you feel the doctor has started to discuss treatment before hearing all your symptoms, be absolutely sure you finish presenting all your complaints. REPEAT BACK WHAT YOUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;VE LEARNED Non-compliance â&#x20AC;&#x201D; when a patient does not follow through on a treatment plan or prescription protocol â&#x20AC;&#x201D; accounts for a lot of wasted medication and continued physical dis-

comfort. If you have any doubts about the doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diagnosis, be sure to express them. Likewise, if you feel he or she was too quick to prescribe a medication, ask to discuss another approach to solving the problem. If it helps, write down the doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evaluation, record it on an audio recorder, or bring along a friend or family member for support.

A gift of a red carnation or just a simple â&#x20AC;&#x153;thank youâ&#x20AC;? on National Doctorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Day shows your doctor youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re grateful for her contribution.

Aspiring doctors have a challenging road ahead By Tresa Erickson

You probably have a couple of physicians that you visit annually for checkups and more often when needed. If you're lucky, you spend more time watching doctors on television than you do sitting in their offices. At first glance, practicing medicine may seem

A special thank you to our doctors...

glamorous. While there is prestige and money involved in the profession, there are also long hours and sometimes difficult cases. The path to becoming a doctor is even more arduous. Obtaining a medical degree requires an enormous amount of study and education. Most students start by enrolling in a pre-med program at a college or university, and upon nearing completion of their bachelor's degree, take the Medical College Admission Test (M.C.A.T.) and apply to medical school. If accepted, they spend four years there studying various aspects of the field of medicine. The first year usually consists of basic science courses, like anatomy and physiology, while the second year consists of courses focused

specifically on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. At the end of their second year of medical school, students must take the first part of the U.S. Medical Licensing Examination and demonstrate knowledge of basic medical sciences. If they pass, they can proceed with their studies. In the third year of medical school, students start their rotations through the specialties of medicine, like surgery and radiology. In the fourth year, they continue with rotations, but are given more responsibilities and must complete electives. At the end of that year, they must take the second part of the Medical Licensing Examination and demonstrate their ability to apply their medical knowledge to patient cases and provide patient care under supervision. Upon completion of medical school, students start their residency. Generally a residency consists of three or more years of training in a specialty the student has chosen. The specific length of the program varies from specialty to specialty. While a residency in neurology usually takes three years, a residency in radiology takes four to five years and a residency in internal medicine takes three years plus two to three years in a subspecialty like geriatrics. The first year of residency is known as an internship. During this time, students rotate through different specialties or areas within a specialty. They spend the remainder of their residency training in their specialty. After their residency, students may do more training through a fellowship program. Upon completion of their residency or fellowship, students can finally obtain a medical license. The rules for getting a medical license vary by state. Four years of college, four years of medical school, three or more years of residency and sometimes a fellowship-that's what it takes to become a doctor. It is a path that only the strong survive. The next time you're waiting to see your physician, consider the measures they have taken to get where they are. Sure, they may make great money, but they sure went through a lot to get there.
