Funding options explored Committee debates fee to fund street repairs BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org
Film critic Roger Ebert dies at 70
The Troy Finance Committee debated the merits of levying a $10 permissive fee as a means of funding street, public road and highway improvements, for which the budget has declined over the
TROY years. At least $220,000 would be accrued per year with the $10 permotor-vehicle fee, should it be implemented for 2014. Director of Public Service and Safety Patrick Titterington said his concern is roads will be “deteri-
orated to the point that they may be undrivable,” without increased funding, especially given the rough winter conditions. The 2012 and 2013 budget of $500,000 is $100,000 short of the estimated $600,000 needed to address priority paving issues, he added. Should the measure pass, the county could levy $5 of the $10 fee
and would not be required to share that revenue with the city. The county already passed a $10 permissive fee per motor vehicle last year. Councilman John Schweser asked if the city should instead consider cutting $220,000’s worth of paving for a year instead of imposing another fee on residents. “I’m concerned the average

nuclear technology, or a bluff. The North is not believed to have mastered the technology needed to miniaturize nuclear bombs enough to mount them on long-range missiles. Nor has it demonstrated that those missiles, if it has them at all, are accurate. It also could be years before the country completes the laborious process of creating enough weaponized fuel to back up its nuclear threats. South Korean Defense Minister Kim Kwan-jin said he did not know the reasons behind the North’s missile movement, and that it “could be for testing or drills.” He dismissed reports in Japanese media that the missile could be a KN-08, which is believed to be a longrange missile that if operable could

Reynolds and Fugate were listed as residents of Lot 23 in the mobile home park and Pizzo is from New Carlisle. Due to the volatile nature of the chemicals, as well as reported firearms in the mobile home, detectives made the arrest as the trio left the mobile home park on Wednesday afternoon, said Chief Deputy Dave Duchak. All three were charged with a third degree felony illegal possession of drug chemicals and were incarcerated at the Miami County Jail. All three men are being held with $100,000 bonds. Duchak said all three have had extensive criminal histories.

North calls them rehearsals for an invasion and says it needs nuclear weapons to defend itself. The North has also expressed anger over tightened U.N. sanctions for its February nuclear test. Analysts say the ominous warnings in recent weeks are probably efforts to provoke softer policies from South Korea, to win diplomatic talks with Washington and solidify the image of young North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Many of the threats come in the middle of the night in Asia daytime for the U.S. audience. The report of the movement of the missile came hours after North Korea’s military warned that it has been authorized to attack the U.S. using “smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear weapons.

Japan central bank revamps policy to boost economy TOKYO (AP) — Japan is taking aggressive action to lift consumer prices, encourage borrowing and help pull the world’s thirdlargest economy out of a long slump. Like the U.S. Federal Reserve, Japan’s central bank plans to flood its financial system with more money its most far-reaching step to date to get consumers and companies to borrow and spend. The Bank of Japan’s action will also drive down the value of the yen. A cheaper currency will make Japanese goods from Toyota cars to Sony TVs less costly overseas. And it will make U.S. and other exports more expensive in Japan. — Staff and wire reports

Memphis march honors MLK MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Hundreds of union members and their supporters marched in Memphis on the 45th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s murder, calling for a new commitment to the human rights causes he died for. With the march and a dedication ceremony Thursday, they honored King and the sanitation workers strike that brought him to Memphis, where he was assassinated in 1968. In a light drizzle, more than 1,000 marchers wore T-shirts with union logos and held signs saying “We are Memphis” or bearing the slogan for the 1968 strike: “I am a man.” Participants came from as far as Louisiana, California and New York. Surviving Memphis strikers Baxter Leach, Alvin Turner and the Rev. Leslie Moore joined the marchers when they arrived at a rally at the National Civil Rights Museum, built on the site of the old Lorraine Motel where King was shot down. Moore, 66, was in his early 20s at the time of the strike. He still drives a truck for the Memphis sanitation department. “Something lifted off of us when Dr. King came to Memphis,” Moore said in an interview days ahead of the march. “Before he came, we had a hard time. When he came, it looked like everything brightened up, a light began to shine out.”
The Rev. Eric Terrell, with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference out of Atlanta, leads marchers in song as more than a thousand people gathered and marched together in Memphis, Tenn., Thursday, to the plaza at the National Civil Rights Museum. The event marked the 45th anniversary of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s murder. Speakers at the rally included Martin Luther King III and Lee Saunders, president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. City officials had begun the day by dedicating a section of historic Beale Street to the 1,300 sanitation workers who walked off their jobs in February 1968 after two garbage collectors were crushed to death in a malfunctioning truck. The strikers demanded and eventually received higher pay
and safer working conditions. The street, named “1968 Strikers Lane,” runs in front of the headquarters of AFSCME Local 1733. Martin Luther King Jr. supported the union when he came to Memphis to make speeches and march with the workers. The civil rights leader was standing on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel when he was killed by a rifle bullet on April 4, 1968. James Earl Ray pleaded guilty to

Ten years ago, about $700,000 was budgeted. Since then, the city has seen the program go unfunded for two of those years and subsist on $500,000 for 2012 and 2013. As the budget has decreased, asphalt prices have risen as well, Swan said, adding that it makes more sense for the city to spend $20,000, for example, on small road repairs than $100,000 to rebuild a dilapidated road. Councilman Bobby Phillips stated that he is concerned residents are feeling “nicked and dimed,” but acknowledged that the city must find new ways to accrue revenue given statewide budget cuts. Finance chairman Tom Kendall and committee members Schweser and Doug Tremblay agreed that the legislation prepared should include a five-year sunset clause and the money should be allotted for an account

The range he described could refer to a mobile North Korean missile known as the Musudan, believed to have a range of 3,000 kilometers (1,800 miles). That would make Japan and South Korea potential targets along with U.S. bases in both countries but there are doubts about the missile’s accuracy. The Pentagon announced that it will hasten the deployment of a missile defense system to the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam to strengthen regional protection against a possible attack.

Speaking at the street dedication, King’s son said workers still face challenges like the ones they fought to overcome in 1968. He said his father’s campaign for racial and social equality through nonviolent means still has meaning. “He was talking about real issues that uplift the quality of life of all people,” he said. During the march, members of the local firefighters union chanted “Four point six, four point six” for the 4.6 percent pay cut they were forced to take in a cost-cutting move by the city. They are demanding an end to the pay cut, which has also affected police officers. The city and workers unions are negotiating. A central issue is the 2011 pay cut. AFSCME also plans to meet with the city to discuss the possible privatization of the sanitation department. Candis Collins came from Wynne, Ark. to support her fellow AFSCME members. Collins was a 17-year-old mother, sitting at home in a rocking chair with her young child, when she heard on the news that King was dead. “I was just devastated, you know, when he was assassinated,” said Collins, 62. “I’m here today because unions make a difference in the lives of workers.”

missiles. Some suspect that an apparent long-range missile unveiled by the North at a parade last year was actually a mockup. “From what we know of its existing inventory, North Korea has short- and medium-range missiles that could complicate a situation on the Korean Peninsula (and perhaps reach Japan), but we have not seen any evidence that it has long-range missiles that could strike the continental U.S., Guam or Hawaii,” James Hardy, Asia Pacific editor of IHS Jane’s Defence Weekly, wrote in a recent analysis. Kim, the South Korean defense minister, said that if North Korea were preparing for a full-scale conflict, there would be signs such as the mobilization of a number of units, including supply and rear troops, but South Korean military officials have found no such preparations.

“(North Korea’s recent threats) are rhetorical threats. I believe the odds of a full-scale provocation are small,” he said. But he added that North Korea might mount a small-scale provocation such as its 2010 shelling of a South Korean island, an attack that killed four people. At times, North Korea has gone beyond rhetoric. On Tuesday, it announced it would restart a plutonium reactor it had shut down in 2007. A U.S. research institute said Wednesday that satellite imagery shows that construction needed for the restart has already begun. For a second day Thursday, North Korean border authorities denied entry to South Koreans who manage jointly run factories in the North Korean city of Kaesong. South Koreans already at the plant were being allowed to return home. South Korea has prepared a military contingency plan should North Korea hold South Korean workers hostage in Kaesong, Defense Minister Kim said. He wouldn’t elaborate.

Condemned killer seeks clemency was killing her, Smith’s attorneys argued in court filings with the Ohio Parole Board, which heard the case Tuesday. And Ohio law is clear, they say: A death sentence requires an intent to kill the victim. “The evidence suggests that Autumn’s death was a horrible accident,” Smith’s attorneys, Joseph Wilhelm

Tyson and Fleming, said in a written argument prepared for the board. They continued: “Despite the shocking nature of this crime, Steve’s death sentence SMITH should be commuted because genuine doubts exist whether he even committed a capital offense.” Smith, 46, was never charged with rape, meaning the jury’s only choice was to convict or acquit him of aggravated murder, his attorneys say. However, rape was included in the indictment against Smith as one of the factors making him eligible for the death penalty. Under Ohio law, an aggravated murder committed in the course of another crime such as burglary, robbery, arson or the killing of a police officer or child is an element that can make someone eligible for capital punishment. The Richland County prosecutor said Smith continues to hide behind alcohol as an excuse and calls Smith’s actions “the purposeful murder of a helpless baby girl.” Prosecutor James Mayer told the board in his written statement that the girl’s injuries were consis-

tent with a homicide that contradicts Smith’s claim he didn’t intend to kill her. “The horrific attack upon Autumn Carter showed much more than Smith’s stated purpose,” Mayer said. Mayer said Monday he didn’t know why Smith wasn’t charged with rape, but he said it wasn’t part of a trial strategy. The attack happened early in the morning of Sept. 29, 1998, in the Mansfield apartment of the girl’s mother, Kaysha Frye, whom Smith had been dating about six months. Frye was awakened after 3 a.m. by a naked Smith, who placed Autumn beside her in bed, according to records prepared for the parole board hearing. Frye realized the girl wasn’t breathing, told Smith he’d killed her and then ran to a neighbor’s house for help. Smith, known to consume as many as 12 beers a day, had had several beers the previous evening and had a blood-alcohol content of 0.123, well above the legal limit for drivers, when he was tested almost eight hours later, at 11 a.m., records show. Smith had unsuccessfully tried to have sex with his girlfriend the evening before the attack, according to records. The prosecutor argued that Smith’s assault of the girl was revenge for Smith’s failure to perform with Frye. Smith’s attorneys dispute this, saying the girlfriend was not upset with Smith. Prosecutors presented evidence at trial that Smith’s attack lasted as long as 30 minutes, during which time Smith beat the girl to death. Expert witnesses for Smith conclude he may have accidentally suffocated the girl within three to five minutes while he lay on top of her, according to Smith’s clemency petition.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Condemned killer Steven Smith’s argument for mercy isn’t an easy one. Smith acknowledges he intended to rape his girlfriend’s 6-month-old daughter but says he never intended to kill the baby. The girl, Autumn Carter, died because Smith was too drunk to realize his assault
A casual community meeting was held Monday for those interested in learning more about the Covington building project. “We want to focus on questions,” Superintendent Dave Larson said. And that’s just what they did following Larson’s opening remarks. During his time, the superintendent reminded those in attendance that the project was needed to save the district money. He said that while considering the budget, talk kept coming back to the buildings and their needs. One thing became obvious according to Larson: “Eventually, these buildings are going to bankrupt the district.” A Facilities Planning Committee was then formed and the group went to work deciding the best course of action. It was determined the district should pursue a building project with the Ohio School Facilities Commission. The plan is for a new pre-kindergarten to eighth grade building with renovations and updates to the high school creating one campus. The state will pay 58 percent of the cost, or $10.5 million. Covington tax payers will have to pay the rest. This will be done by a property tax of 3.89 mills and an income tax or .25 percent. For the owner of a $100,000 home with a taxable income of $40,000, the cost would be $18.26 per month. The district does have other figures available, or the Miami County Auditor’s Office can be contacted for specifics. Larson said the burden put on the elderly was a common concern with the levy of 2010 that failed. He feels two items help to protect this population with the current levy. Those 65 or older, or totally and permanently disabled, qualify for The Homestead Exemption Act. This allows them to shield $25,000 of the market value of their home from being taxed. For the previous example, this would reduce the monthly amount by $2.48. Also, social security is not taxed. Larson said some have asked why the district didn’t go with a pre-kindergarten to 12th-grade building like the 2010 plan had. They have said that they didn’t vote for the 2010 levy, but they would now. Noting that this is “hard to figure out,” Larson stated that the current plan is $3 million less and in the end, the result still will be a one campus solution. This will save the district $200,000 through attrition.
If we don’t spend this money, someone else is going to.
— Supt. Dave Larson
The new building would be to the north and east of the high school and would be attached at the high school commons. One attendee asked if there was a danger of the OSFC being done away with. Wealthy districts haven’t qualified for a cofunded project because their district’s equity rating is too high. Larson believes the possibility of the state opening the money up to these districts is more of a concern. “If we don’t spend this money, someone else is going to,” he said. Another attendee asked when the district would be coming back to voters because they want to build a new high school. Larson said eventually leaders will have to look at “When is it not cost-effective to update this building (the high school.)” However, because the current building plan is what’s called “a segmented plan,” if they desire to complete the project with a new high school at a later date, it can be co-funded by the state as the current plan is. Larson did add that the district has a 1.25 percent income tax renewal that will expire in 2015. This will need to be voted on prior to the expiration. “If you vote for nothing else, vote for that 1.25 percent because we need that to pay our bills,” he said. Also, an attendee asked if items would be added that are not co-funded by the OSFC, such as an auditorium. Larson stated that such items are not included in the plan, but they could be added if a generous donation is made. He cited examples of neighboring schools that have auditoriums because a community member felt the performing arts were important and donated the funds to build the facility. The new school would have a stage in the commons area for small performances, or when a larger audience is expected, performances could be held in the gym. Larson said this is similar to Newton’s new school. Answering another question, Larson said leaders plan to redesign the high school to include the board of education office. A tentative timeline also was shared. If the May 7 levy is passed, the OSFC will decide in July if the district receives funding. “Covington is a lapsed district. The OSFC has funded every lapsed district that’s passed its levy,” Larson said. Design for the new building would take place from July 2013-spring of 2014. Construction would go from the spring of 2014summer of 2015. Occupancy would come at the beginning of the 201516 school year.

Question: Do you feel North Korea poses a real nuclear threat to the United States?

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” — First Amendment, U.S. Constitution
EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Japan Times, Tokyo, on no place for nuclear weapons: The Norwegian government on March 4 and 5 sponsored an international conference on the various effects that nuclear weapons detonations would have on human health, the natural environment and economic development. Although the conference did not touch on nuclear nonproliferation, nuclear arms reduction or elimination of nuclear weapons, it was significant in that it squarely dealt with the inhumane nature of nuclear weapons. Government and political leaders and citizens should deepen discussions on this issue and increase the awareness of the cruel nature of nuclear weapons to give momentum to efforts for reduction and eventual eradication of nuclear weapons. Delegates from 127 countries, the United Nations, the International Committee of the Red Cross, the Red Cross and the Red Crescent movement, and civil society organizations took part in the Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons. … Two atomic bomb survivors, among the Japanese government delegates, told the conference that survivors have suffered not only ill health but also post-traumatic stress disorder from their radiation exposure 68 years ago. Masao Tomonaga, director the Japanese Red Cross Nagasaki Genbaku (atomic bomb) Hospital, presented his research, which showed a high cancer incidence among atomic bombing survivors. He characterized nuclear weapons as “gene-targeting weapons.” Having suffered the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as well as the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, Japan has a duty and responsibility to appeal against the inhumane nature of nuclear weapons and work toward their elimination in earnest. The Australian on Obama’s Middle East mission: Expectations of Barack Obama’s historic first visit to Israel as U.S. president were never high. On the eve of his arrival, those expectations look even less promising. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced his new coalition government, with key posts going to powerful proponents of the settlements policy that lies at the heart of strained relations with the Obama White House. Despite this, Obama has a vital mission with both Israeli and Palestinian leaders in seeking common ground for the resumption of stalled Middle East peace talks. In pursuing that goal, he would be wrong to become bogged down in the settlements issue. An Israeli commentator’s description of the new government as “of the settlers, by the settlers, for the settlers” may be an overstatement but the cabinet’s composition — with former armed forces commander and settlers’ favorite General Moshe Yaalon as Defense Minister, the leader of the pro-settler Jewish Home party that rejects Palestinian statehood, Naftali Bennett, in a senior post and a member of his party, Uri Ariel, as Housing Minister responsible for new settlements — reasserts the policy that has rankled with Obama. Despite international criticism, this is a clear signal Israel is not going to retreat and if Obama seriously wants to end Washington’s protracted neglect of the Middle East peace process, he must find other ways of persuading the two sides to resume talking. The principal roadblock to negotiations remains, as always, Palestinian opposition to talks without preconditions and Hamas’s refusal to recognize Israel’s right to exist. Netanyahu, by contrast, has long been willing to talk without preconditions. In meeting Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas, Obama must convince him that statehood can be achieved only by negotiating directly with Israel, however provocative the resettlements policy. Obama must also do whatever it takes — including the use of force — to stop Iran getting nuclear weapons, and to work hand in glove with Netanyahu to thwart Tehran. Strained relations with Israel in Obama’s first term ill-served U.S. strategic interests and seriously undermined what should be an intimate bilateral relationship, able to confront issues such as Iran. The president must seize the opportunity to restore the relationship and get talks over a two-state solution restarted.

My journey toward being healthy ends in the bathroom Sometimes a change of pace can bring one a whole new perspective. I found little gem of wisdom in the most unlikely of places last weekend. In my own clouded world, I think I’m a fairly healthy person, especially considering the poor lifestyle choices I make each day. I’m beating those odds! Sometimes I partake in all those bad choices all at the same time. I’m naturally talented like that. Yet, despite my less-than-stellar diet and lifestyle habits, I feel like I’ve kept up with the aging process with as little effort as possible. But it’s starting to catch up with me. While most people begin their annual trek to the world of pure health on Jan. 1, I tend to wait until the resolution failures clear the gym before I make my annual stab at my flab. I never understood why people set themselves up to fail when the odds and the thermometer are stacked against them. I wait until it’s warm to torture my body. It’s the least I can do. It also could have something to do with my health insurance bill
Melanie Yingst Troy Daily News Columnist sky-rocketing for no reason, reminding me that it’s cheaper in the long run to live life not hooked up to a machine. Amen. I haven’t been pushing myself with my often half-hearted home workouts with Jillian Michaels (who happens to be a robot who designed the Church of Scientology) coupled with some Zumba 2 on the Wii, so I managed to cash in a cardio workout with a personal trainer at a local gym. Plus I needed a column for this week. So in exchange for a trial run for a new cardio dance class, all I had to do was provide a little feedback. Free and I get to blab my opinion afterwards? Sign me up! So I showed up last Saturday morning with all the enthusiasm

of a TED Talk motivational speaker on speed. I love music. I love to dance. How hard could this be? Unlike the rest of my family, I do have rhythm. Well, at least I thought I did until Saturday. What in the world made me think I was great at dancing before? Could it have something to do with a crowded dance floor in the dark with 80 other intoxicated people? No need to call Scotland Yard on this one folks. I quickly found out that dancing, while sober and during the daylight is a whole other animal. But I managed to get through a few warm-up songs and got my line dance moves in order. I was feeling good. Then things started getting a little bit faster and then there was a step involved. Well, 15 incredibly long minutes later, I had to tell the personal trainer Emalie that I needed a drink of water. What I really needed to do was to lie on the bathroom floor of the A.B. Graham Center until the room stopped spinning. Did you know that concrete floors can bring you back from
near death? You didn’t? Well, please take my word for it. Sadly this isn't the first time I found myself on the bathroom floor after an attempt to reclaim my health. Last spring I signed up for a "spinning class," which is a cutesy exercise term for torture via exercise bicycle. After 20 minutes of intense cycling and trying to keep up with the insanely good-looking instructor, I started feeling the blood leave my brain. Minutes later I found peace and serenity from the cold tiles of the YMCA floor. I never went back. I called my RN sister and told her about my experience. “You never try to keep up with the instructor; are you insane?!?” So while I only did maybe 30 percent of intense cardio ordeal, I just celebrated the fact that I got out of bed before noon on a Saturday. I guess we all have to start somewhere, even if it means having to pick oneself off the bathroom floor. Again.

Famed movie critic Roger Ebert dies at 70 speak, eat and drink. But he went back to writing full time and eventually even returned to television. In addition to his work for the Sun-Times, he became a prolific user of social media, connecting with fans on Facebook and Twitter. Ebert’s thumb pointing up or down was his trademark. It was the main logo of the long-running TV shows Ebert co-hosted, first with Siskel of the rival Chicago Tribune and after Siskel’s death in 1999 with Sun-Times colleague Richard Roeper. A “two thumbs-up” accolade was sure to find its way into the advertising for the movie in question. The nation’s best-known movie reviewer “wrote with passion through a real knowledge of film and film history, and in doing so, helped many movies find their audiences,” director Steven Spielberg said. His death is “virtually the end of an era, and now the balcony is closed forever.” In early 2011, Ebert launched a new show, “Ebert Presents At the Movies.” The show had new hosts and featured Ebert in his own segment, “Roger’s Office.” He used a chin prosthesis and enlisted voice-over guests or his computer to read his reviews. Fans admired his courage, but Ebert told The Associated Press that bravery had “little to do with it.” “You play the cards you’re dealt,” Ebert wrote in an email in January 2011. “What’s your choice?
This undated file photo originally released by DisneyABC Domestic Television, shows movie critics Roger Ebert, right, and Gene Siskel. I have no pain. I enjoy life, and why should I complain?” Scott Jordan Harris, a British man who wrote for Ebert’s website, said he was moved that the critic lost his voice but “never let that make him silent.” Always modest, Ebert had Midwestern charm but stuck strongly to his belief that critics honestly tell audiences “how better to invest two hours of their lives.” On the air, Ebert and Siskel bickered like an old married couple and openly needled each other. To viewers who had trouble telling them apart, Ebert was known as the fat one with glasses, Siskel as the thin, bald one. Ebert favored blue sweater vests and khakis. Later in life, after his sur-
geries, he switched to black turtlenecks and white, film director-style scarves. Joining the Sun-Times part-time in 1966, he pursued graduate study at the University of Chicago and got the reviewing job the following year. His reviews were eventually syndicated to several hundred other newspapers, collected in books and repeated on innumerable websites, which would have made him one of the most influential film critics in the nation even without his television fame. His 1975 Pulitzer for distinguished criticism was the first, and one of only three, given to a film reviewer since the category was created in 1970. In 2005, he received another honor when he became the first critic to have a star on the 2380066
CHICAGO (AP) — Roger Ebert had the mostwatched thumb in Hollywood. With a twist of his wrist, the Pulitzer Prizewinning critic could render a decision that influenced a nation of moviegoers and could sometimes make or break a film. The heavy-set writer in the horn-rimmed glasses teamed up on TV with Gene Siskel to create a format for criticism that proved enormously appealing in its simplicity: uncomplicated reviews that were both intelligent and accessible and didn’t talk down to ordinary movie fans. Ebert, film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times since 1967, died Thursday at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, two days after announcing on his blog that he was undergoing radiation treatment for a recurrence of cancer. He was 70. “So on this day of reflection I say again, thank you for going on this journey with me. I’ll see you at the movies.” Ebert wrote Tuesday on his blog. Despite this influence, Ebert considered himself “beneath everything else a fan.” “I have seen untold numbers of movies and forgotten most of them, I hope, but I remember those worth remembering, and they are all on the same shelf in my mind,” Ebert wrote in his 2011 memoir titled “Life Itself.” After cancer surgeries in 2006, Ebert lost portions of his jaw and the ability to

Hollywood Walk of Fame. Ebert’s breezy and quotable style, as well as his deep understanding of film technique and the business side of the industry, made him an almost instant success. He soon began doing interviews and profiles of notable actors and directors in addition to his film reviews celebrating such legends as Alfred Hitchcock, John Wayne and Robert Mitchum. Ebert also offered words of encouragement for then-newcomer Martin Scorsese, who was one of three filmmakers working on a bio-documentary about Ebert at the time of his death. In 1969, Ebert took a leave of absence from the Sun-Times to write the screenplay for “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.” The movie got an “X” rating and became somewhat of a cult film. Ebert’s television career began the year he won the Pulitzer, first on WTTW-TV, the Chicago PBS station, then nationwide on PBS and later on several commercial syndication services. And while Siskel and Ebert may have sparred on air, they were close off camera. Siskel’s daughters were flower girls when Ebert married his wife, Chaz, in 1992. “He’s in my mind almost every day,” Ebert wrote in his autobiography. “He became less like a friend than like a brother.” Ebert found a professional and personal partner in Chaz, who acted as his co-producer. He often would use his computer voice to say “I love you” to her during television interviews. She returned the sentiment, telling Ebert during the final dress rehearsal for “Ebert Presents at the Movies” that he had an “indomitable spirit.” “And you know that’s right,” Chaz Ebert told her husband. “Because people would have understood totally if you decided never
to do any of this again.” Ebert was also an author, writing more than 20 books that included two volumes of essays on classic movies and the popular “I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie,” a collection of some of his most scathing reviews. The son of a union electrician who worked at the University of Illinois’ Urbana-Champaign campus, Ebert was born in Urbana on June 18, 1942. The love of journalism, as well as of movies, came early. Ebert covered high school sports for a local paper at age 15 while also writing and editing his own science fiction fan magazine. He attended the university and was editor of the student newspaper. After graduating in 1964, he spent a year on scholarship at the University of Cape Town in South Africa and then began work toward a doctorate in English at the University of Chicago. Ebert’s hometown embraced the film critic, hosting the annual Ebertfest film festival and placing a plaque at his childhood home. Ebert also was embraced online in the years after he lost his physical voice. He kept up a Facebook page, a Twitter account with more than 800,000 followers and a blog, Roger Ebert’s Journal. The Internet was where he forged relationships with his readers, posting links to stories he found interesting and writing long pieces on varied topics, not just film criticism. He wittily interacted with readers in the comments sections and liked to post old black-and-white photos of Hollywood stars and ask readers to guess who they were. “My blog became my voice, my outlet, my ‘social media’ in a way I couldn’t have dreamed of,” Ebert wrote in his memoir. “Most people choose to write a blog. I needed to.”

Stagelight Players to present ‘Merry Wives’ For the Troy Daily News
peare’s lesser-known and even lessperformed comedies. “We decided to do ‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’ because of its potential to make people laugh,” Beisner said. “This is the only play by Shakespeare that includes all middle class characters. People can really relate to them! It also gives the actors freedom to explore their characters and make them as real and true to life as possible.” Shakespeare’s stories have such timeless themes that they can be set in any time period or location. “We are setting the play in Windsor, North Carolina during the 1870s Civil War reconstruction,” Beisner said. “I felt it was a fishout-of water story which would fit nicely in a post Civil War era. It adds a nice southern flavor to go along with the funny, charming and somewhat pompous characters the
story contains.” The show will feature classic American music of the Civil War era along with a wide array of costumes designed by Edison faculty member William Loudermilk. Tickets for the show are $7 for adults, $5 for students and $3 for seniors and can be purchased at the door. Children under 12 are free. Shows will run at 7:30 p.m. April 12-13 and 19-21. Beisner said he has been impressed with the direction and progress that Edison’s theater program has made over the years. “Things are definitely headed in the right direction. There are lots of wonderful people at Edison who want to see the theatre program succeed, from teachers to the administrative staff,” he said. “I’ve made it a personal goal to bring such a high level of quality to our productions, that when people think of great theater, they think of Edison.”

Because Dowd insists on introducing Harvey to everyone, the family’s social life has become non-existent. The evening will start at 7:30 with an introduction to the film. After viewing the film, a short discussion may follow. There will be cafe-style seating with popcorn and soda pop. The film series is intended for adult viewership and may not be appropriate for children under 13.

This film image released by Fox Searchlight shows Vincent Cassel in a scene from “Trance.” • “Trance” — Plot-twisting puzzlers are a bubble market in the movies these days, with an arms race of “Inception”-like reality reversals that flip like a coin until dizzy audiences lose all interest in how it lands. That’s the case with Danny Boyle’s latest, a mind-bending neo-noir with continually shifting layers but little beyond its stylish plot machinations. James McAvoy is Simon, a London auctioneer who either assists or double-crosses a well-planned gang led by Frank (the excellent Vincent Cassel) in stealing a lucrative Goya. A blow to the head has sapped Simon of his memory, leading the crew to enlist a hypnotist (Rosario Dawson) to elicit the location of the missing painting. This is, naturally, when the script by Joe Ahearne and John Hodge begins to play with Simon’s hypnosis. The movie drifts in and out of consciousness, guided by Dawson’s silky voice. Is Simon our protagonist or villain? Are Simon’s memories being uncovered or implanted? It’s Dawson’s fleshy, commanding presence that helps melt the movie’s right angles. But by the time a full picture of her hypnotist arrives, the movie’s succession of implausible trapdoors has rendered any big reveal about as satisfactory as a punch line to a 20-minute-long knock-knock joke. R for sexual content, graphic nudity, violence, some grisly images, and language. 101 minutes. Two stars out of four. • “Upstream Color” — Nine years after his impressive debut “Primer,” writer-director Shane Carruth is back with his much-anticipated follow-up, which is just as daring and original at the opposite end of the aesthetic spectrum. If “Primer” was cerebral and methodical in allowing its mystery to unfurl, Carruth’s latest creates a totally different kind of suspense as a hypnotic sensory experience. This is a capital-A art-house movie, definitely not for everyone. Carruth throws you in the deep end at the start and challenges you until the end. His mesmerizing use of imagery of textures and sounds, of crisp lighting and radiant natural beauty has a haunting, lyrical quality reminiscent of Terrence Malick. But he also injects some moments that are so horrific and squirm-inducing, they’re downright Cronenbergian. Kris (Amy Seimetz, showing bravery and great range) and Jeff (Carruth himself, quick-witted and impulsive) find themselves strangely intrigued by each other while riding the same commuter train every morning. They don’t realize it for a while, but they both have been subjected to scientific experimentation that has damaged their lives, finances and careers, the details of which come back in fleeting wisps of memory. The film’s meaning is open to interpretation, but the artistry on display is indisputable, and thrilling. Not rated but contains some violence and some bloody and disturbing images. 96 minutes. Three and a half stars out of four. • “The Place Beyond the Pines” — The first image you see is of Ryan Gosling’s shirtless torso, ripped and tatted atop a skintight pair of leather pants. But the long tracking shot that comes next is a better indication of where director and co-writer Derek Cianfrance is headed. His camera follows Gosling’s character from behind through a garishly lighted traveling circus. Gosling’s bleach-blond “Handsome Luke” lights a cigarette and strides calmly but purposefully into a loud and crowded tent, where he climbs onto a motorcycle before entering a ball-shaped cage with two other riders to perform a death-defying stunt. Over the next two-plus hours and across three connected stories, it will become clear that everything is very dramatic and everyone is doomed. You can try to redeem yourself but it’s no use; the past always catches up with us. Not a terribly novel concept but one that Cianfrance and co-writers Ben Coccio and Darius Marder hammer home with the utmost seriousness. Part one focuses on Luke trying to be a father to the infant son he never knew he had with a waitress (Eva Mendes) he had a fling with the last time he passed through town. Part two follows the rookie police officer (Bradley Cooper) whose path he crosses at a pivotal moment. And the final part jumps ahead 15 years as both men’s sons (Dane DeHaan and Emory Cohen) forge an ill-advised friendship. R for language throughout, some violence, teen drug and alcohol use and a sexual reference. 140 minutes. Two stars out of four. • “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” — If a big, dumb action movie knows it’s a big, dumb action movie and revels in that fact, is that preferable to a big, dumb action movie making the mistake of thinking it’s significant, relevant art? That’s the question to ponder here if you can think straight and your ears aren’t ringing too badly. This sequel of sorts to the 2009 blockbuster “G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra” seems to have some cheeky fun with itself, from Bruce Willis cheerily revealing the arsenal he’s hiding in his quiet suburban home to RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan essentially showing up and playing himself. A major city is obliterated with the touch of a button and several others are in peril as the world hinges on nuclear destruction in what amounts to a hammy game of chicken. Nothing matters really. This is a movie based on a Hasbro toy, after all it’s all spectacle and bombast. But at least “G.I. Joe” is aware of its vapidity compared to, say, last week’s “Olympus Has Fallen,” in which North Korean terrorists took over the White House in self-serious fashion, but our Secret Service agent-hero found time to make wedged-in, smart-alecky quips on the way to saving the day. PG-13 for intense sequences of combat violence and martial arts action throughout, and for brief sensuality. Running time: 110 minutes. Two stars out of four.
PIQUA — The Edison Stagelight Players have chosen the bard’s comedy “The Merry Wives of Windsor” for its spring theater production. Sir John Falstaff, tavern bad boy and unruly Knight, meets his match when he tries to scam the housewives of suburban Windsor. And he is not alone. All manner of jealous, hot-headed, pompous and just plain silly men are brought firmly to their senses by Windsor’s merry women. In this silliest of Shakespeare’s comedies, virtue and middle class common sense triumph with the assurance that “Wives may be merry, and yet honest, too.” Reimagining the comedy in the 1870s American south during the Reconstruction, this delightful romp is a comic treat and sure to be a rollicking good time for the whole family. Director Matt Beisner is excited about producing one of Shakes-

Jerry may still be hung up on his ex-wife Dear Annie: I've been a widow for 15 years. I moved to another state to be with my kids and met "Jerry." We've been dating for nine months. Jerry has been divorced for two years and has two adult children. His ex-wife was his childhood sweetheart and the only woman he'd ever been with. The problem is, I have never been to Jerry's house. He says his niece and youngest child live with him, and he hasn't told the family about me. When I asked why, he said, "Then everyone will know it's over between my ex and me." I think Jerry's mother sustains the hope that he will get back together with his ex, and I'm pretty sure his ex would like that, too. I gave Jerry a deadline of three months to make our relationship public. He swears he's not still married, and he gave me a ring for Valentine's Day. He spends the night at my house every week. I just want to know what you think. — Not Yet Official Dear Not Yet: Either Jerry is still hung up on his ex-wife, or he's too afraid of his mother to date anyone else. If he were truly ready to move forward, seeing you publicly would not be an issue after nine months. Your deadline makes sense, but you must be ready to end the relationship if Jerry doesn't come through. That would mean he isn't likely to ever be "ready." Sorry. Dear Annie: I'm planning my wedding and asked my best friend, "Kayla," to be my maid of honor. I love her like a sister. Right after college, Kayla made a mistake and got pregnant after a one-night stand with some guy she met at a bar. Her daughter, "Jessie," is now 4 years old, a wonderful child and my goddaughter. I want her as my flower girl. My mother liked Kayla until Jessie was born and she realized the child is biracial. My mother hit the roof when she found out Kayla and Jessie are in the wedding party. She claims they are "tainted." I am astounded and furious with my mother. Her side of the family is extremely racist, and I have little to do with them. My mother always downplayed their behavior as "old fashioned," but now that she's older, she's become just like them. Believe me, it's not early-onset dementia or anything like that. She's simply turning into her parents. My fiance and I are footing the entire bill for this wedding, so we are not beholden to anyone. I'm shocked and embarrassed that my mother has become someone I can't stand to be around. She told my father and brothers that she won't come to the wedding if Kayla and Jessie are there, and frankly, I'm relieved — and that bothers me. My father is appalled by her behavior, as are my brothers. What do I do now? — Bigot's Daughter Dear Daughter: A parent's preferences should be taken into consideration when they are reasonable, but your mother's are not. You can calmly discuss with her why her demands are abhorrent to you and that you hope she will reflect more rationally on the racist opinions she holds. But you cannot change her. You can only decide how much you can tolerate. Please do not give in to her blackmail. Dear Annie: You had a letter from "Suggestions Appreciated," who wanted to know what to do about guests who track snow into her house. You said it was OK to ask them to remove their shoes, especially if she provides comfy little slippers. I have one more suggestion: Let people know beforehand that they will need to take off their shoes. I have a lift in one shoe and cannot go without them. I have a special pair of shoes that I can bring along to wear inside the house if I know in advance that I will need them. — Frank Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HINTS FROM HELOISE
Advertising a way out when surfing the Internet Dear Heloise: I do a lot of work and research online. I hate when I go to a website and a large ad appears. I have found that when this happens, most pages have a link that says “continue on to destination” or something like that. You can click on it and bypass the advertisement. It normally is in very small print at the bottom or in the corner of the page. They try to make it hard to find, of course, because they want you to click on the ad. — Paul, via email Paul, you are voicing what most of us deal with when using the Internet! However, those annoying ads are what
Hints from Heloise Columnist allow us to use the Web for free. Do look for that small box or “X” that reads “skip this ad” and click on it! You are right — it usually is hidden or blends into the background! — Heloise TRAVEL HINT Dear Heloise: Regarding your hints on what to do when
leaving for a long trip, those are good suggestions, and here are some more: Turn off valves to the washer and under the sinks. This could prevent the house from flooding if a supply hose springs a leak — and they do. The ice maker will turn itself off when the bin is full, so that’s good to do, but not a huge issue. Also, check the thermometer and set the air conditioner at 85 or the heat at 60. I also leave a radio on and set random on-off timers on some lights. — P.A.L., via email Good advice, and everyone should have a “checklist” to
close the house down, especially if you travel a lot, like I do. It’s easy to forget to take out the trash! — Heloise SCENTED FLOWERS Dear Heloise: My husband has allergies, so I’m not able to burn candles in our home. To get around this, I lightly spray scented oil, perfume, etc., onto artificial flowers that I have in several vases throughout the house. The scent is not strong and can be tolerated by my husband. I mainly do this when we’re expecting company, as I can do without the scents the rest of the time. — Cheryl B. in Louisiana

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP — Today is Friday, April 5, the 95th day of 2013. There are 270 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 5, 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an executive order creating the Civilian Conservation Corps and an antihoarding order that effectively prohibited private ownership of gold. On this date: • In 1614, Pocahontas, daughter of the leader of the Powhatan tribe, married English colonist John Rolfe in Virginia. (A convert to Christianity, she went by the name Lady Rebecca.)
• In 1621, the Mayflower sailed from Plymouth Colony in present-day Massachusetts on a monthlong return trip to England. • In 1792, President George Washington cast his first veto, rejecting a congressional measure for apportioning representatives among the states. • In 1862, during the Civil War, the monthlong Siege of Yorktown began in Virginia. • In 1887, in Tuscumbia, Ala., Anne Sullivan achieved a breakthrough as her blind and deaf pupil, Helen Keller, learned the meaning of the word “water” as spelled out in the
Manual Alphabet. • In 1951, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were sentenced to death following their conviction in New York on charges of conspiring to commit espionage for the Soviet Union. • In 1987, Fox Broadcasting Co. made its prime-time TV debut by airing a total of three times the premiere episode of “Married… with Children” followed by “The Tracey Ullman Show.” • Today’s Birthdays: Former Secretary of State Colin Powell is 76. Actor Max Gail is 70. Country singer Troy Gentry is 46. Singer Paula Cole is 45. Country singer Pat Green is 41.
HUD, DOT chiefs in NJ announce post-Sandy regs KEARNY, N.J. (AP) — Homeowners and businesses using federal disaster aid to rebuild from Superstorm Sandy will have to take additional flood protection measures, top federal officials announced Thursday. The new standard will require that residential, commercial or infrastructure projects using federal aid elevate their structures 1 foot above the latest Federal Emergency Management Agency recommendations or, if elevation isn’t possible, relocate or flood-proof boilers or other utilities a foot higher than the latest federal guidance. “We need to recognize the reality of rising sea levels and extreme weather events,” Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said at a news conference in front of an aging electrical substation that was flooded by Sandy last October. “We can do better than simply react from one storm to another.” Housing and Urban
Development Secretary Shaun Donovan, appearing with LaHood, said the task force he leads that is overseeing the federal disaster response examined 10 years of FEMA flood mitigation efforts to reach the new standard. He said stricter standards have proved to be cost-effective, particularly along the Gulf Coast where there has been a demonstrable difference between buildings that took stricter flood prevention measures after Hurricane Katrina and those that didn’t. “We know that success won’t be defined by building things back the way they were,” he said. The new standards apply to homeowners and businesses who are spending 50 percent or more of the market value of their property on rebuilding and who are using Sandy disaster aid. The FEMA maps already have been a source of consternation and some confusion in New Jersey, where many homeowners found themselves sud-
denly designated in hazardous zones when the preliminary flood maps were issued in December. Gov. Chris Christie has said he expects FEMA to revise those maps over the next few months. FEMA head Craig Fugate told a congressional hearing last month that they could change as well. The new designations have a price tag attached: Homeowners in newly hazardous zones could pay up to 10 times their current flood insurance rates if they don’t elevate their homes. Rebuilding infrastructure will be a costlier proposition. It is estimated that rebuilding the Kearny substation that LaHood and Donovan toured Thursday, which affects the busy Northeast Corridor rail line, will cost about $25 million. That is in line with previous estimates to rebuild a nearby substation that flooded and cut power to New Jersey Transit’s train service into Hoboken for months.

No sign of alcohol for 6 teens killed in Ohio crash gy tests have turned up no sign of alcohol or drugs, authorities said Thursday as they worked to wrap up the investigation. A crash reconstruction revealed the SUV was

traveling between 62 mph and 70 mph on a 35-mph road before it flipped into a pond in a dark, unlit area in Warren on March 10, killing the 19-year-old driver and five of the seven boys riding with her, State Highway Patrol Lt. Brian Holt said. None of them was wearing a seatbelt. Investigators determined that the teens had been at various houses in Warren in the hours before the early morning crash and that the 19year-old, Alexis Cayson, had been driving the SUV on and off throughout the night with teenage passengers, including some who weren’t involved in the crash, and had been driving recklessly. “We know she was reckless and erratic. … Kind of the whole night
was just a joyriding situation,” Holt said. It’s unclear what the teens were doing at the houses they visited, and investigators have to rely on the toxicology results, he said. Drug tests for Cayson and three boys who died found no sign of drugs. Results aren’t complete for two more boys who died and two who survived, according to the patrol. All eight teens were from Warren, a mostly blue-collar city about 50 miles southeast of Cleveland. Grieving relatives and friends had hoped the Thursday update from authorities would provide some answers. “It’s still an open wound,” Holt said. “This will be, hopefully, one step
toward that closure that’s needed for the families and for the community.” The update addressed some of the lingering questions about the circumstances of the crash, but other points remain unsettled, including exactly why the driver lost control of the SUV, which was later reported stolen. Investigators found no evidence that anyone interfered with Cayson’s driving in a way that would have caused her to lose control. She didn’t have a valid license. One of the boys who wriggled out of the wreckage, 15-year-old Asher Lewis, told a state trooper that Cayson had been swerving and speeding and said he believed she did it intentionally, though
he wasn’t sure why. The other survivor, 18year-old Brian Henry, told investigators he had pleaded for Cayson to slow down but that she instead sped up on a stretch of road known as “Dead Man’s Curve.” The state patrol identified the boys who drowned as Brandon Murray; Ramone White; Andrique Bennett; Kirklan Behner; and Daylan Ray. All of them were age 14 or 15. The SUV’s owner told troopers that his sister lived with Cayson and that she had taken the keys without his permission while he was sleeping at their apartment. No one has been charged, but the investigation will be sent to the Trumbull County prosecutor’s office for review, Holt said.

Troy pulls away early, beats Beavercreek Staff Reports
TROY — Dylan Cascaden and Nick Sanders started the day off right for Troy. And though the finish wasn’t what coach Ty Welker would have liked to see, the result is all the same — a win. Troy scored two in the first inning and eventually took an eight-run lead Thursday against
visiting Beavercreek, and even though the Beavers finally put some runs on the board in the final inning, it was too late in an 8-3 Trojan victory at Market Street Field. Cascaden tripled to lead off the first inning and Sanders immediately doubled him home,
then Kevin McGraw brought in Sanders with a sac fly to make it 2-0 — and that lead grew to 5-0 after a three-run third inning. And in that third inning, the Trojans had the bases loaded with two outs when Alex Magoteaux hit a clutch two-run single. “Anders is their ace, and he had 16 strikeouts in his first start and just dominated

TORONTO (AP) — J.P. Arencibia hit two solo homers, Edwin Encarnacion added a three-run shot and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Cleveland Indians 10-8 on Thursday night, avoiding their first 0-3 start since 2004. Jose Bautista hit a two-run homer and Colby Rasmus also connected as the Blue Jays went deep five times. Arencibia had three hits with two RBIs. He had a second-deck drive to center in the second and a tiebreaking shot to left in the sixth, his seventh career multihomer game. Carlos Santana and Mark Reynolds replied with solo homers for the Indians, who were trying to start a season with three straight road wins for the first time since 1998. Steve Delabar (1-0) got two outs for the win and Casey Janssen finished in the ninth for his first save. Consecutive doubles by Jason Kipnis and Nick Swisher gave the Indians a 1-0 lead in the first, but Toronto answered in the bottom half when Bautista drilled a two-run homer to left, his second in two days. Arencibia’s leadoff drive in the second put Toronto up 3-1, but the Indians tied it in the fourth on back-to-back homers by Santana and Reynolds, whose 11th inning blast decided Wednesday’s 3-2 win for the Indians. Encarnacion lined a three-run shot that just cleared the left field wall in the fifth, putting the Blue Jays up 6-3, but Cleveland answered again in the sixth. Santana hit an RBI double and Lonnie Chisenhall chased Mark Buehrle with a two-run double to left, tying it at 6-all. Buehrle allowed six runs and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings. He

Gaborik big in debut with Blue Jackets
Fans vote on best of March Madness BY JIM O’CONNELL AP Basketball Writer ATLANTA (AP) — It doesn’t matter what the final vote totals say, there will be more than one greatest moment and one greatest team. There will even be more than the 15 greatest players. College basketball fans will still have their own favorites in each category as they look back on 75 years of March Madness. To commemorate the 75th tournament’s anniversary, the NCAA will release on Friday the results of a fan poll that determined a No. 1 in the greatest moment and greatest team categories and the top 15 players. The original lists were compiled and researched by the NCAA’s basketball and statistics staffs, which consulted with the organization’s media partners and selected members of the U.S. Basketball Writers Association. Last month each category was trimmed, the moments to 35, the teams to 25, and the players to 75. The buzzer-beater that made you a fan for life may not be there, and the player who you imitated every time you shot the ball may not make it, either. That’s OK. Remember, nobody was wrong. Except the people who didn’t agree with you. With a much better chance at being correct at this than on the tournabracket sheet ment (thanks Wichita State and Florida Gulf Coast) here’s one set of votes that goes a little bit beyond the fan poll: • BEST MOMENT The ballots should have come with this box already filled in. Please, the answer is Duke 104, Kentucky 103 in overtime at the Spectrum in Philadelphia on March 28, 1992. Down one, 2.1 seconds left, 94 feet from the Kentucky basket, Duke’s Grant Hill throws a 75-foot pass that finds Christian Laettner who hit a turnaround 17-footer to cap a 10-for-10 night from the field that sent Duke onto the Final Four and a second straight national championship. There were other great moments — North Carolina State’s upset win over Houston in 1983 when Jim Valvano ran around looking for someone to hug and Indiana capping a perfect season in 1976 and Michael Jordan hitting his game-winner for North Carolina in 1982 — but there was one best moment and it took a perfect pass, a sweet move and a sure shot. • BEST TEAM It’s tough to argue with a zero on the right side of a team’s won-loss record. That means there are really just six teams in the running for this one.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Marian Gaborik scored the go-ahead goal at 4:16 of the third period and added an assist in his debut Thursday night with Columbus, helping the Blue Jackets beat the Predators 3-1 for a rare win in Nashville. The Blue Jackets won for just the seventh time in Nashville and the second time this season in this series between Central Division rivals. Matt Calvert also had a goal and an assist, James Wisniewski had a powerplay goal, and Brandon Dubinsky had two assists. Sergei Bobrovsky made 38 saves. Kevin Klein scored a goal for Nashville, which slipped one point behind Columbus and into 11th place in the Western Conference. The Blue Jackets had a goal waved off after officials ruled Calvert kicked the puck into the net at 6:42 of the third, a goal that would have put Columbus up 3-1. Calvert scored a goal at 10:50 that didn’t require a review. He sent a wrister from just inside the blue line that
Pekka Rinne hit with his blocker, but the puck bounced over him. Columbus had Gaborik on the ice wearing No. 10 after sending a private plane to bring him to Nashville on Wednesday. The Blue Jackets sent three players and a draft pick to the New York Rangers for the veteran forward and two minor defensemen. league Forward Blake Comeau, a trade pickup from Calgary, is expected to join Columbus in St. Louis on Friday. Columbus made all the moves to build on March, the best month in the franchise’s history. The Blue Jackets, who have made the playoffs only once, are one place below the postseason cutoff in the West. The Predators sent right wing Martin Erat to Washington for top prospect Filip Forsberg at Wednesday’s trade deadline. Nashville showed plenty of energy, outshooting Columbus 13-8 in the first period and forcing Bobrovsky to make several saves in the opening minutes.

In this March 28, 1992 file photo, Duke’s Christian Laettner shoots the game-winning basket in overtime over University of Kentucky’s Deron Feldhaus to win the East Regional Final of the NCAA Tournament in Philadelphia, 104-103 in overtime. UCLA’s last of three unbeaten champions was the 1972-73 team that capped its season with an 87-66 victory over Memphis State when Bill Walton shot 21 of 22 from the field and scored 44 points. If there’s still any doubt, here is what coach John Wooden said after the tournament: “I’ve never had a greater team both offensively and defensively.” (A trivia note: This was the first Final Four played on a Saturday and Monday). Of the teams that finished with a loss or two or three, North Carolina State (30-1) with David Thompson in 1973-74 and Kentucky (34-2), with a roster full of NBA players, in 1995-96, deserve some consideration. • TOP PLAYERS Fifteen? No way. There are 15 great players in the last 15 years. So with this being the 75th anniversary, shouldn’t it be 75 players? Still, in the interest of space, here’s 15 players with a four-man injured reserve just in case: Oscar Robertson, Kemba Walker, Christian Laettner, Patrick Ewing, Hakeem Olajuwon, Larry Bird, Danny Manning, Jack Givens, Glen Rice, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, David
Thompson, Austin Carr, Jerry Lucas, Bill Bradley, Bill Russell, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Walton, Jerry West. • BEST COACH This should have been on the official list and it would have been another easy one. John Wooden led UCLA to 10 national championships in a 12year period. There was a generation of kids who thought the tournament was held to decide a runner-up to the Bruins. Adolph Rupp led Kentucky to four titles, the same number Mike Krzyzewski has won at Duke. Bob Knight of Indiana and Jim Calhoun of Connecticut have three each. John Wooden won 10 so this discussion is done. • BEST NICKNAME Besides the school nickname, the Oregon Ducks in 1939 had a team that came to be known as the “Tall Firs.” And the tree reference wasn’t enough. The Ducks were greeted with this headline in the Oregon Emerald the day after the title: “Wandering Webfoots Whip Ohio State.” There were also great nicknames like “Fab Five,” ”Rupp’s Runts,” ”Phi Slamma Jamma,” ”Doctors of Dunk.” Still, any team that can go by “Tall Firs” and “Wandering Webfoots”
takes the nonexistent title. • BEST CATCHPHRASE Jim Valvano’s North Carolina State team in 1983 lived by the creed of “survive and advance.” The better one came six years earlier when Al McGuire, another emotional coach from New York, explained that an event like the Final Four was “seashells and balloons.” • BEST ARENA Since 1997, the Final Four has been played in a domed stadium, basketball on a football stage. Before then there were some great arenas that hosted the national semifinals. Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City hosted nine national championship games with Madison Square Garden second with seven. If it was up to the media — and it never is — the dome that would be the favorite to host is Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. • BEST SONG No matter how much people say “One Shining Moment” is a little too sappy, there are a lot of people standing around and watching it play on the scoreboard after the nets cutting is over. Knowing the words is optional but humming along is mandatory.
Two tied for Texas Open lead SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Matt Bettencourt has spent the last year searching for answers to his severe asthma problem. The journeyman PGA golfer finally found that answer last week, in the form of the right combination of medication. His comfort showed on the golf course Thursday as he shot a 5-under par 67 to earn a share of the lead with Peter Tomasulo, and hold off a field that includes Rory McIlroy, after the first round of the Texas Open. Minus the jitters and shakes he’s become so accustomed to, Bettencourt needed only 25 putts to hold off a group of four players — including former British Open and PGA Championship winner Padraig Harrington — at 4 under. The 37-year-old looked more like the former PGA winner that he is rather than someone who’s 183rd on this year’s money list. “My game hasn’t been the concern,” Bettencourt said. “… I’ve gone back and forth from three to four different inhalers and some different medications, which has helped my health, but I haven’t been able to play golf with it at all.” Tomasulo, meanwhile, looked anything but a player fighting to keep his
tour card — taking advantage of warmer and calmer afternoon conditions while playing in the final pairing of the day. He posted the only bogey-free round while playing in his sixth PGA tournament of the year. Tomasulo entered the year with the opportunity to play in eight events, thanks to a medical exemption following a rib injury two years ago, and he closed with a 10-foot birdie on the par-5 18th to earn a share of the lead — and come one step closer to securing his tour card. • LPGA Tour RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (AP) — Suzann Pettersen and Na Yeon Choi pushed each other to the top of the leaderboard in perfect morning conditions in the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Jodi Ewart Shadoff matched them late Thursday afternoon with a scrambling par on the par-5 18th after her drive went to the right and found the deep rough behind a tall tree. “There were two options,” said Ewart Shadoff, the 25-year-old Englishwoman in her second full year on the LPGA Tour. “Punch fade it around the tree, left, or punch it right around the tree and keep it over the bunker at the same time. I took the safer route and it paid off.”

More Rutgers faculty seek firings in coach case NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) The call from faculty members and politicians to oust top Rutgers University administrators grew louder Thursday, a day after men’s basketball coach Mike Rice was fired for mistreating players, including shoving them and berating them with gay slurs. More than 50 faculty members signed a letter calling for the dismissal of Athletic Director Tim Pernetti and an explanation from President Robert Barchi for why he didn’t fire Rice last year when he learned of a video showing Rice’s behavior during practices. Stephen Sweeney, the
president of the state Senate, also called for Pernetti to step down or be fired. Pernetti deserves credit for getting Rutgers into the Big Ten conference, but he mishandled this situation, Sweeney said. “This incident will continue to hang over Rutgers like a dark cloud for weeks, months and perhaps years to come,” the Democratic lawmaker said in a statement. “It seems pretty clear that things were not handled well from the start.” Meanwhile, the number calling for Barchi to step down more than doubled Thursday to 28. The letter calling for
Barchi’s resignation was first sent to the university’s governing boards on Wednesday. In it, the faculty cite Barchi’s “inexcusable handling of coach Mike Rice’s homophobic and misogynist abuse” of players, his “continued pattern of insensitivity and arrogance toward issues of diversity” and the “secrecy and lack of transparency that he has exhibited in his relations” with faculty, staff and students. It’s unclear what effect the calls might have on the president or the athletic director. Neither was willing to be interviewed by The Associated Press on Wednesday or Thursday. Members of the universi-
ty’s two governing boards have been mum. Barchi, a neuroscience researcher before he became a university administrator, was hired a year ago and took office Sept. 1 to lead the university with 58,000 students on three campuses. He had been president of Thomas Jefferson University, a Philadelphia health sciences university, and before that was an administrator at the University of Pennsylvania. He was brought to Rutgers as the university takes over two medical schools that now are part of the separate University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. The ongoing
reconfiguration of the state’s higher education system is intended to expand Rutgers’ life-science research prowess, and Barchi was chosen largely to oversee that. He had never been an administrator, though, at a school with athletic scholarships. Over the past decade, Rutgers’ athletic program has grown increasingly ambitious and expensive, largely as the university’s football team transformed from an also-ran to a power in the Big East conference. The school’s teams are set next year to join the more prestigious Big Ten, a move engineered largely by Pernetti, a former TV
sports executive. Shortly after he took office, Barchi told reporters that high-profile sports teams are an important way to increase the university’s visibility, but that he wanted to gradually reduce the university’s operating subsidy for sports currently about $8 million per year while continuing to pay for scholarships for athletes at a cost of about $10 million annually. Barchi said in a statement Wednesday that Pernetti told him last year about the video of Rice made by a former basketball program employee, but he said he did not watch the video until Tuesday, the day it was made public.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 walked one and struck out four. Arencibia broke the tie with another second deck drive to begin the bottom of the sixth, bringing Cody Allen out of the Cleveland bullpen to replace Brett Myers. One out later, Rasmus hit a solo drive to right. Emilio Bonifacio followed with a groundball double to center, then scored on a throwing error by Reynolds, giving Toronto a 9-6 lead. Backto-back walks loaded the bases for Adam Lind, but he flied out to end the inning. Myers (0-1) gave up seven runs and seven hits in five-plus innings. He walked two and
struck out none. Reynolds hit an RBI single off Esmil Rogers in the seventh and Kipnis cut it to 9-8 with an RBI double off Darren Oliver in the eighth. Cleveland loaded the bases with two outs but second baseman Bonifacio ended the inning by ranging into shallow center to throw out Santana. Toronto added an insurance run off Matt Albers in the eighth when Reyes scored from second on Bautista’s fielder’s choice grounder. NOTES: Cleveland placed LHP Scott Kazmir Indians on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right ribcage muscle, retroactive to April 2.
■ CONTINUED FROM 15 could have gone either way.” Todd Frazier also had a solo homer off Blanton (01), and Chris Heisey’s tworun shot put Cincinnati up 5-3 in the fifth. Blanton gave up five runs and seven hits in five innings during his Angels debut. Blanton, who signed a two-year, $15 million deal in December, didn’t make many bad pitches. He didn’t have much luck, either. “Two of them were off mistakes, and I felt I made maybe a handful of them all day,” Blanton said. “That happens sometimes in baseball. One of those things that just happened out of the gate.” Heisey’s homer was his first as the full-time left
fielder. He’s replacing Ryan Ludwick, who had surgery on Wednesday to repair torn cartilage in his right shoulder, an injury that will sideline him for at least the first half of the season. “I’ve proven I can play off the bench,” Heisey said. “I’m not feeling any pressure.” Bronson Arroyo (1-0) gave up three runs in six innings, including Josh Hamilton’s two-run single that was his first hit for the Angels. Albert Pujols drove in a pair of runs with a sacrifice fly and a groundout. Nobody enjoyed Choo’s homer more than Arroyo. Choo has four career homers off Arroyo, his highest total off any pitch-

er. The Reds got him from Cleveland in the offseason. “Every time he goes deep for me, it’s like a holiday,” Arroyo said. Left-hander Aroldis Chapman pitched the ninth, converting his first save opportunity. Mike Trout led off with a single and was sacrificed to second, but Pujols flied out and Hamilton struck out. The teams combined for seven homers and 63 strikeouts during the series. The Reds fanned 36 overall, a club record for the first three games of a season. The 36 strikeouts were an Angels record for a three-game series. Their biggest hitters also have had a tough time getting started. Pujols and Hamilton
were a combined 0 for 17 with six strikeouts before they finally put something together in the third inning. Pujols doubled for his first hit, and Hamilton followed with a two-run single; Pujols slid into home safely while catcher Ryan Hanigan missed his leg while attempting the tag. Pujols also had a sacrifice fly and a run-scoring groundout, limping on his left foot after he’d run. Pujols is playing through pain from plantar fasciitis. Choo got the Reds started with his sixth career leadoff homer. Frazier led off the second inning with a homer just inside the left field foul pole, and Heisey connected in the fifth.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 could have gone either way,” Troy coach Mark Goldner said. “(It was a) good win over a good team.” Last year, Troy dropped a narrow 3-2 decision to Milton-Union in its home and season opener. Overall, the Trojans were 1-2 in matches decided by a 3-2 score. They’re already off to a better start this season. Luke Oaks, a sophomore in his second season at first singles, continued his solid play by defeating Nick Pavlatos in convincing fashion, 6-0, 6-1. And at first doubles, the experienced duo of Matt Alexander and Ian Stutz defeated Peder Tune and Mitchell Dunlap 6-2, 6-1. At second doubles, Hidekazu Asami and Jesse Wright defeated Humza Aamir-Khan and Rehan Syed in a three-set battle, splitting the first two sets and then winning a tiebreaker in the decisive third set to close out a 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory. At second singles, Humza Bashir defeated Chris Schmitt in three tough sets, 4-6, 6-4, 7-5. At third singles, Sam Brougher defeated Matt Schmitt, who fought back after dropping the first set 6-0 but eventually fell 7-5 in the second. “The match came down to second singles and second doubles,” Goldner said. “Chris Schmitt played a very steady player and just came up short in a long two-and-a-half-hour match. Our second doubles team came back to split sets and forced the third set tiebreaker — which we pulled out 7-5 for the team victory. Luke and first doubles were in control of their matches, while Matt Schmitt played a good second set only to lose 7-5. Troy improved to 2-0 on

the season with the win. The Trojans travel to Five Seasons Racket Club to face Bellbrook on Monday. Tippecanoe 5, Bellefontaine 0 TIPP CITY — So far this season, Tippecanoe has only dropped a single game. Faced with a shorthanded Bellefontaine team on Thursday, the Red
Devils were simply overpowering in a 5-0 Central Buckeye Conference victory over the Chieftains. With Bellefontaine only bringing six players due to spring break, the Devils tinkered with their lineup — and everything they tried worked. At first singles, Sam Bollinger won 60, 6-0. At second singles, Hailey Winblad won 6-0, 6-
0. After a forfeit at third singles, Michael Keller and Jacob Belcher won at first doubles 6-0, 6-0 and Adam Southers and Jon Lin won at second doubles 6-0, 6-0. Tippecanoe (2-0, 2-0 CBC) travels to Urbana Monday. Milton-Union 4, Piqua 1 PIQUA — MiltonUnion had little trouble with Piqua Thursday, winning 4-1 in non-league play. At first singles, Zach Blevins defeated Andrew Lamphar 6-1, 6-0. At second singles, Craig Hollis defeated Joey Hsiang 6-3, 6-0. At third singles, Jake Blevins defeated Joline Hsiang 6-0, 6-1. At second doubles, Mitch Gooslin and Cole Wallace defeated Luke and Josh Hanes 7-6 (2), 7-5. Milton-Union’s lone loss came at first doubles, where Trey Barnes and Will Rice lost 6-2, 6-4 to Layne Patrizio and Devon Parshall.
Covington 2 WEST MILTON — After dropping their third straight game to start the season on Wednesday, 10-0 at Madison, the MiltonUnion Bulldogs not only picked up their first win but also handed Covington its first loss in a 12-2 run-rule victory Thursday at MiltonUnion. Jesse Simpson homered, Alex Gunston was 2 for 2 with a double and a triple and Wes Biser — who also was the winning pitcher — was 2 for 4 as the Bulldogs (1-3) put the game away with a nine-run third inning. Kyler Deeter was 3 for 3 for Covington (3-1), which travels to Lehman for a doubleheader Saturday. MiltonUnion, meanwhile, hosts Carlisle today.
CASSTOWN — Versailles capitalized on a number of Miami East mistakes — both in the field and on the basepaths — in a 10-2 victory Thursday. The Vikings only gave up two earned runs in the game, but they also hurt themselves by getting thrown out at home plate on sac fly attempts or even picked off of third base. “I should have warned him not to go too early, but that just shows that coaches can make mistakes, too,” Miami East coach Barry Coomes said. “We’ve just got to learn from these and get better.” Miami East is off until Tuesday, when it travels to Newton. • Softball Miami East 11, Versailles 6 CASSTOWN — For the second day in a row, Miami East took an early lead, only to see it evaporate. And for the second day in a row, the Vikings responded once it did.
Paige Mullen punctuated a huge day at the plate with a two-run home run in the fifth inning, putting the Vikings back on top for good in an 11-6 victory over Versailles Thursday. Mullen was 4 for 4 with a double, the homer and five RBIs on the day — none bigger than her fifth-inning two-run shot after the Tigers had taken a 6-5 lead in the top of the fifth, though. “Paige really came through for us in the fifth,” Miami East coach Brian Kadel said. “And she also had two RBIs in the first inning that got us going.” The Vikings jumped ahead 3-0 after one and built that lead to 4-0 before Versailles tied the game with four in the top of the third. But Miami East put up three runs in both the fifth and sixth innings to put the game away. Madison Linn was 2 for 3 with two RBIs, Sarah O’Neal and Sam Denlinger both doubled and Christine

INDEPENDENCE (AP) — As the Cavaliers descend to the bottom of the standings in the final days of another depressing season, questions have mounted about coach Byron Scott’s future. No doubt, he’s in trouble. And while there are plenty of excuses — injuries and a lack of talent are atop the list — for Cleveland’s awful record, Scott’s not using any of them. But one day after Cleveland was embarrassed at home by Brooklyn for its 10th straight loss, second-year Cavs forward T r i s t a n Thompson decided it was time to defend Scott, who is just 62-160 in three seasons and may not be back for a SCOTT fourth. “All the rumors about coach Scott and hot seat and all that crap, that’s bogus,” Thompson said following Thursday’s practice. “It’s up to us to come out and compete and play hard because we’re the ones out there. When he was out there playing, he won championships. So it’s up to us to come out there and play.” The Cavs regrouped following Wednesday’s ugly loss, when they fell behind by 30 points at halftime and were throttled by the Nets, who were missing two starters but pushed around a Cleveland team that appeared to have called it a season with two weeks left. Following a game that looked like many other
losses this season, Scott couldn’t explain why his young team had played with little energy or effort. And for the first time, Scott was asked the uncomfortable question of whether he was worried about losing his job. “Not really,” he said. “I’ve always had the attitude, ‘Whatever happens, happens.’” With eight games left, there’s no telling what could happen in the weeks ahead. Scott is under contract for next year after the club picked up his option for 2013-14 in October. General manager Chris Grant has not publicly commented on Scott’s future. Owner Dan Gilbert, too, has been quiet on the subject. was Scott handed a difficult situation when he was hired in 2010, taking over the Cavs shortly after they were ousted from the NBA playoffs and before LeBron James decided to leave Cleveland as a free agent. Scott was charged with rebuilding a young team around point guard Kyrie Irving, but to this point, progress has been minimal. Injuries to Irving, Anderson Varejao and Dion Waiters have made things infinitely more challenging, but Scott’s critics argue that the Cavs don’t play defense, his substitution patterns are scattered, and if the team isn’t playing hard, that’s a reflection on the coach. For the most part, Scott has chosen not to assess blame.
Roundup ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 innings for the win, striking out seven, walking two and only giving up three singles. But his pitch count was rising so he didn’t get a complete game, and three walks and two errors in the top of the seventh for Troy gave Beavercreek a little hope before the Trojans finally put it away. “We just didn’t finish it,” Welker said. “That’s the only negative from today. We’re trying to get some of our young pitchers’ feet wet, and it was good experience for him. But we’ve got to not walk batters. Still, we’re happy with an 8-3 win.” Troy hosts Tippecanoe and Miamisburg on Saturday, kicking off the day against the Red Devils at 10:30 a.m. BCreek ....000 000 3 — 3 4 2 Troy..........203 120 x — 8 7 2 Anders, Hayes (4) and Hoffman.
