Jet crashes Aircraft hits apartment complex after pilots eject VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — Two Navy pilots ejected from a fighter jet Friday, sending their unmanned plane careening into a Virginia Beach apartment complex and engulfing several buildings in flames. The plane had dumped loads of fuel before crashing, though it wasn’t clear if that was because of a malfunction or an intentional maneuver by the pilots, said Capt. Mark Weisgerber with U.S. Fleet

Bark parks a big hit If you want to give Fido some space to strut his puppy power, consider taking him to one of the nearby bark parks. Tipp City was the first in the county to introduce a bark park to its residents — and their canine companions — in 2009, and the city of Troy will soon follow suit with a dog area opening in Duke Park sometime around Mother’s Day. Coming Sunday in Valley, in the Miami Valley Sunday News.

Forces Command. Seven people were injured, including both pilots, though all were expected to survive. Authorities were still combing through the wreckage of some 40 apartment units, and they said some residents of the complex still had not been accounted for. The pilots were a student and instructor, Weisgerber said.

Strawberry Festival organizers are hoping the berries aren’t the only thing in bloom this summer — they are looking for a few good men and women, as well. According to Heather Dorsten, Strawberry Festival’s director, this year’s festival needs a lot of helping hands throughout the weekend to make this year’s event a success. “Anybody that can lend a hand would be great,” Dorsten said. “We are still looking for volunteers for security and for a variety of tasks during the festival.” Dorsten said Honda of America workers and Edison Community Collegestaff have volunteered to help man the entrances of the festival and to keep traffic out of the festival site. Yet Dorsten said more help is needed in downtown Troy on June 2 and 3. “A lot of things will be on foot this year because we won’t have golf carts on the site like we’ve had before,” Dorsten said. The security detail will be in four-hour shifts to include keeping traffic out of the festival site and moving the barricades for author-

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. job market took a breather in March after its best hiring stretch since the Great Recession. Employers added 120,000 jobs last month — half the DecemberFebruary pace and well short of the 210,000 economists were expecting. The unemployment rate fell from 8.3 percent in February to 8.2 percent, the lowest since January 2009, but that was largely because many Americans stopped looking for work. Still, few economists expect hiring to fizzle in spring and summer, as it did the past two years. And they blamed seasonal factors for much of Friday’s disappointing report from the Labor Department. “We don’t think this is the start of another spring dip in labor market conditions,” said Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist with Capital Economics. The report was also closely watched in political circles. If employers retreat on hiring, consumers could lose confidence in the economy and potentially dim President Barack Obama’s re-election hopes. Ashworth and other economists cited the weather for the latest jobs report. A warm January and February allowed construction companies and other businesses that work outdoors to hire workers a few weeks earlier than usual, effectively stealing jobs from March. It helps explain a 7,000 drop in construction jobs. Alan Amdahl, who has run his own construction company in Sioux Falls, S.D., for three decades, said a mild winter helped contribute to a flurry of new remodeling jobs. He started hiring in January. “Our winter didn’t really exist,” he said. “It’s just incredible. People didn’t hibernate.” Economists also say the numbers can bounce around from

Bruce Nedelka, the Virginia Beach EMS division chief, said that witnesses saw fuel being dumped from the jet before it went down, and that fuel was found on buildings and vehicles in the area. The plane not having as much fuel on board “mitigated what could have been an absolute massive, massive fireball and fire,” Nedelka said. “With all of that jet fuel dumped, it was much less than what it could have been.” The crash happened in the Hampton Roads area, which has a large concentration of military bases, including Naval Station Norfolk, the largest naval base in the world. Naval Air

Jobs • Continued from 1 month to month. Consistently creating 200,000 jobs a month is tough. The economy hasn’t put together four straight months of 200,000 or more new jobs since early 2000. Economists are still encouraged by the recent hiring trend: Each month from January through March has generated an average of 212,000 jobs. Anthony Chan, chief economist at JP Morgan Wealth Management, noted strong growth among businesses that are especially sensitive to the economy’s health. Hotels and restaurants hired 39,000 workers. Manufacturers added 37,000. The factory hiring is especially welcome. Expanding factories create more jobs at the mines that produce raw materials, in warehouses and at trucking companies. Government jobs, which declined by an average of 22,000 a month last year, fell just 1,000 in March. An improving economy is generating tax revenue and easing budget problems at city halls and statehouses across the country. The March slowdown brings back painful memories of what happened in mid-2010 and again in 2011, when the economy lost momentum and job growth sputtered. Most investors didn’t have the chance to deliver a verdict on the report. The stock market was closed for Good Friday. Bond markets closed early. The job market had been on a recent roll. From December through February, the country added 734,000 jobs, an average of 245,000 each month. The only threemonth stretch that was bet-

ter since the recession ended was March through May 2010, when the government was hiring tens of thousands of temporary workers for the census. Companies across the country are hiring: Nimble Storage, a young information technology company in San Jose, Calif., is rapidly adding staff to keep up with demand for its data storage devices. Anup Singh, the company’s chief financial officer, said the explosive growth of data and the need for companies to store, analyze and deliver it is driving expansion. Nimble Storage has added 30 employees so far this year, bringing its workforce to 175. It expects to hire 70 more by the end of the year. The company is hiring engineers, sales people and customer-support staff. Landry & Kling Cruise Event Services in Miami, which arranges events on cruise ships, has added two workers this year and plans to hire two more. Sales are strong. “It’s like the floodgates are opening,” said CEO and co-founder Joyce Kling. “There’s an energy to our day now. We see a lot of leads floating through.” IdeaPaint, a company that makes washable paint that people can use erasable markers on, has hired seven workers in the last three months. Sales have risen sharply and are expected to keep rising. So the Ashland, Mass.-based company has more plans to hire it has 31 employees now and expects to have 40 at the end of the year. “We just had a board meeting yesterday and agreed to become more aggressive with our hiring, with our advertising, with our investment spending. We’re very confident,” CEO Bob Munroe said.

Station Oceana, where the F/A-18D that crashed was assigned, is located in Virginia Beach. Dozens of police cars, fire trucks and other emergency vehicles filled the densely populated neighborhood where the plane crashed. Yellow fire hoses snaked through side streets as fire crews poured water on the charred rooftops of brick apartment houses. By late afternoon, the fire had been put out. Residents of the apartment complex described a confusing scene and an apologetic pilot. Colby Smith said his house started shaking and then the power went out, as he saw a red and orange blaze outside his window. He ran outside, where he saw

billowing black smoke and then came upon the pilot as he ran to a friend’s home. “I saw the parachute on the house and he was still connected to it, and he was laying on the ground with his face full of blood,” Smith told WVEC-TV. “The pilot said, ‘I’m sorry for destroying your house.’” Smith said he and another man helped the pilot onto the street. Patrick Kavanaugh, who lives in the complex where the jet crashed, opened up his sliding glass door after hearing a loud explosion and saw one of the jet’s pilots on the ground with blood on his face. Kavanaugh said the pilot, whom he described as a “young boy,” was very

Pope offers hope to struggling families ROME (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI encouraged those threatened by unemployment and other economic woes to draw courage and strength from the suffering of the crucified Jesus Christ as the pontiff presided over a Good Friday candlelit Way of the Cross procession at the ancient Colosseum. Benedict, who turns 85 on April 16, didn’t carry the cross during the hourlong procession itself. Instead, he listened intently to meditations on suffering that he asked an elderly Italian couple to compose for the traditional ceremony. Then, as the final reflection was read aloud, the pontiff was handed the slender, lightweight wooden cross, which he held steadily for a few minutes. Thousands of tourists, pilgrims and Romans jammed the boulevard outside the Colosseum and the ancient Roman Forum to pray with him on a mild, cloudy night and listen to hymns. Faithful clutched candles and prayer books. A few held palms or olive branches they had saved from Palm Sunday, which opened solemn Holy Week ceremonies in the Catholic church.


Pope Benedict XVI uncovers the Crucifix during the Good Friday Passion Mass, in St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican Friday. “The experience of suffering and of the cross touches all mankind. It touches the family, too,” the pope said in a brief homily at the end of the procession, which he observed from an elevated landing. Dressed in red robes to symbolize the blood shed by Jesus, the pope added that “these days, too, the situation of many families is made worse by the threat of unemployment and other negative effects of the economic crisis,” such as worry about the future of young people.

But Benedict advised families to “look to Christ’s cross. There we can find the courage and strength to press on.” Strength from God, Benedict sought to assure the faithful, will help families “to make sacrifices and to overcome every obstacle.” After the Colosseum appearance, Benedict’s next public ceremony is an Easter vigil Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica on Saturday evening. Late Sunday morning, he will preside over an Easter

Mass in St. Peter’s Square, expected to be jammed by tens of thousands of people. Finally at noon Sunday, the pope will deliver a traditional Easter address to the square. On Easter, Christianity’s most joyous day, Christians commemorate what they believe is Christ’s resurrection from the dead. on Friday, Earlier Benedict heard the papal household’s preacher deliver a homily in St. Peter’s Basilica and knelt in prayer.

Events such as the Diaper Derby, Pie Eating Contest and Kid’s Crawl will take place at the West Stage area on South Short Street and West Main Street. Dorsten also said the festival committee has been working diligently with downtown businesses to help accommodate their needs during the festival weekend. “We have been in contact with the downtown businesses to work with them during special situations, like deliveries and such during the weekend,”

she said. Dorsten also said visitors this year will see a whole new line of Strawberry Festival garb such as charm bracelets, strawberry embossed leather items and a new batch of Strawberry Festival cookbooks. Several events will be held before the festival this year. The Little Mr. and Miss Strawberry and Golden Couple event will be held at the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center on Saturday, May 19. The Golden Couple event will begin at 10 a.m. and the

Little Mr. and Miss Strawberry will begin at 1 p.m. The Miami County Commissioners have announced the Miami County Safety Building, Miami County Courthouse and Hobart Center for County Government will be closed Friday, June 1, as a safety measure for the Strawberry Festival.

at the apartment complex across the street from the crash, said she saw three apartment buildings on fire. “We heard this loud noise and we looked out the window and there was smoke all in the sky. Then the flames started going up in the sky, and then the apartment building just started burning and the police was called and everybody came out,” Lukens said. Felissa Ezell, 71, was sitting in a folding chair outside her townhouse near the crash site Friday and recalled hearing the crash as she returned home earlier in the day. “Oh, my God, I heard three really loud explosions, then the black smoke went up high in the sky,” she said.

upset and apologetic. “The poor guy was in shock. I checked for broken bones and opened wounds,” said Kavanaugh, who spent 23 years in the rescue squad and retired in 1996. Despite having suffered several heart attacks and open-heart surgery, Kavanaugh said his old rescue skills kicked in as he dragged the pilot around the corner and away from the fire before several other explosions occurred. As authorities closed roads in the neighborhood, traffic backed up on side streets and on nearby Interstate 264, with slowmoving columns of vehicles bringing drivers to a virtual standstill early Friday afternoon.

PTA seeks to reverse drop in membership BY DAVID CRARY Associated Press When Otha Thornton, president-elect of the National PTA, signed up to help lead the PTA at Maryland’s Meade Senior High School in 2005, the chapter had about 25 members. Within two years, membership soared to 400 as the school community mobilized to boost morale and academic performance. Now he’s trying to rekindle that spirit on a larger scale as the PTA strives to reverse a steady decrease in its national membership. “I tell parents: ‘Other people are making choices for you and your children. We need you at the table,’” said Thornton, who will become the National PTA’s first male African-American leader next year. By any measure, the PTA is one of the most venerable and iconic of America’s volunteerbased nonprofits. It was founded in 1897 as the National Congress of Mothers and at its peak in the 1960s claimed about 12 million members. Membership plummeted in the late ’60s and 1970s, in part because of the racial rifts caused by school desegregation, then stabilized. But it has dropped steadily over the past 10 years from about 6 million to under 5 million. Demography is part of the reason: Compared to the PTA’s heyday, there are many more single parents and working mothers now who feel they can’t spare extra time for engagement at their children’s schools.


In this Thursday photo, Gary Parkes, president of the PTA at Carmel Elementary School takes a picture of the progress of an art project in the school’s library in Woodstock, Ga. By any measure, the PTA is one of the most venerable and iconic of America’s volunteer-based nonprofits. But membership has dropped steadily over the past 10 years and for some parents, the PTA’s advocacy work is cause for annoyance, rather than pride. But the PTA’s shrinkage can’t be explained only by such factors, given that parents are active at tens of thousands of schools in independent parent-teacher organizations not affiliated with the PTA. Factors driving this trend include frustration with having to pay state and national PTA dues, and disenchantment with the PTA’s role as a vocal advocate on such issues as charter schools, juvenile justice and home-schooling. “We’re still strong, but it is a concern,” the current national president, Betsy Landers, said of the membership decline. “We’ve chosen to try to attack it in sever-

al different ways.” One initiative involves expanded use of social media. Members are being kept up-todate via podcasts on National PTA Radio, some meetings and training sessions are being conducted through Skype, and members with expertise as bloggers or tweeters are being recruited as “social media ambassadors” to enhance the PTA’s online presence. Landers, of Germantown, Tenn., hopes these tactics will help cut costs while also enticing more parents to join. “We’re really trying to give our members the information they

seek in a way they prefer,” she said. Thornton, a retired Army colonel who now works as a senior analyst for General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) in Georgia, said other membership-boosting strategies include encouraging urban parents to be more involved in their local schools, expanding outreach to rural schools, and training a new wave of leaders from minority groups. For Thornton, 44, his PTA mission is intertwined with his family history a Georgia family that refused to let borderline poverty derail the quest for college education. “Education was a way out,” Thornton said. “When I had kids, it was very important for me to be involved and be sure they got the best education possible.” While Thornton and Landers say the PTA needs to be creative with new membership strategies, one change that’s not on the cards is any backing away from the PTA’s role as lobbyist on behalf of children and public schools. Among many causes over the years, it has campaigned for better nutrition in school cafeterias, fought to sustain arts programs, called for more empathetic treatment of juvenile offenders, and voiced wariness about school vouchers and for-profit charter schools. “Advocacy is really the heart of what we do we’re seen as the goto people on parent engagement,” said Landers, who’s been active in the PTA since 1989. She said the PTA’s full-time

lobbyists on Capitol Hill are reinforced by a vast network of members nationwide who, when mobilized by email, will contact their own members of Congress. “Any association that takes a stand, there will always be some members who disagree,” Landers said. “Any stand we take is decided by membership … It’s not made by staff, not made in Washington. It’s made by the grass roots.” For some parents, however, the PTA’s advocacy work is cause for annoyance rather than pride. “I don’t feel the PTA’s mission and our mission are the same,” said Gary Parkes, president of the PTA at Carmel Elementary School in Woodstock, Ga. “Parents think they’re joining to be involved with the kids at their school, and they’re really becoming part of a massive political action committee.” Annual dues are another source of disgruntlement. The individual dues for National PTA membership may seem modest they were increased last year, for the first time since 2001, from $1.75 to $2.25 but the total rises when state and district dues are added. “I don’t feel like we get anything from national or state to justify that expense,” Parkes said. Parkes said he and many other parents at Carmel Elementary would like to sever ties with the National PTA and form an independent PTO, but were told by the school district that this would not be allowed.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Hawk Eye, Burlington, Iowa on courtroom cameras: We don’t often agree with Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, on issues, but he was spot on when he called for there to be cameras permitted in the hallowed chambers of the U.S. Supreme Court. That would have made for must-see television as the high court took up the case of the controversial health care law passed by Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2010. Grassley was one of the lucky few — about 250 in all — to have secured a seat to witness the sides argue the health care case before the nine justices. Fortunately, the court offered audio recordings of the proceedings on its website after each session. It’s hard to imagine how including cameras to allow Americans to watch the court in action could impact the outcome of their decision. The court listens as attorneys for both sides of an issue plead their case, and the justices pepper those attorneys with questions. An ongoing experiment provides cameras in 14 federal courtrooms this year for civil proceedings.

The co-pilot had the presence of mind to suggest the captain go to the bathroom and when Osbon did, the co-pilot and another JetBlue pilot on board locked themselves in the cockpit. Osbon tried to get back into the cockpit and reportedly tried to open the plane’s outer door. He urged the co-pilot to get the plane on the ground quickly and told passengers to say their prayers. Now, Osbon has been charged by the U.S. Department of Justice with interfering with the flight crew, an unusual charge for a commercial pilot that carries a penalty of up to 20 years in prison. But the incident should raise concerns about the mental health of those who serve us as pilots, ship’s crew, bus drivers, engineers and the like. How many other Clayton Osbons are out there? JetBlue says Osbon passed a mandatory health check some four months ago, but did it include any kind of mental evaluation? We don’t know, but perhaps it should have. The sad fact is we do a terrible job of identifying and dealing with mental issues in the country. We still attach a stigma to those who seek help. Many health plans cover only limited care for mental issues and for those without insurance, care is a nightmare of neglect and denial. When budgets have to be cut, they too often are trimmed in areas of mental health care. Clayton Osbon needs such help, and we doubt he will get it behind bars.

Have you seen the latest television abuse? I made a terrible mistake Wednesday night. My husband had already turned in for the night, meanwhile I was slaving over my blog or some other task that didn’t really need to be completed at midnight, but I chose to work on anyway. And since I was a little girl, any time I try to get something done I have to have background noise. This usually means some loud country music or my favorite rerun of “Friends,” “Greys Anatomy” or “House Hunters,” but Wednesday night was different. I had been watching something on Lifetime and mistakenly left the television on the soul-sucking, preys on female emotion channel, and boy, was I regaled. Have you seen the show “Dance Moms?” I’m pretty sure it’s a favorite of Troy’s very own editor, David Fong, and after just one episode, I think I can see why. It makes him thankful for the sane woman he married. It makes him thankful his daughter goes to a good dance studio

Amanda Stewart Troy Daily News Columnist in Troy that is free from television drama. Or, he just likes girly television — whatever. In case you’ve been busy living your life and haven’t had a chance to catch this gem of a television series, let me fill you in on what you’ve been missing. For starters, there are the moms. Hoards of them, mostly falling into two categories: the chubby, ugly ones (the ones you can tell have battled weight and esteem issues their entire lives and are now living vicariously through their pretty, fit children) and the popular, have-fartoo-much-money-on-their-hands, mothers (the ones who dominated their high schools and married the quarterback).

— Wesley Jones Troy

And in tow with every mom is a twisted, eerily similar minime (in one case there’s even a little boy!), basically a miniature version of what their mothers wish they were — all dolled up to look like 25-year-olds trapped in 8-year-old bodies. And then there are the two dance academy owners — Mr. Dancey man and Second Mr. Dancey man (I forget their names, don’t judge me). They basically make a living off of telling these children they’re not good enough, they’re below average and they need a lot more mascara and lip shine if they want even one judge to pay attention to them (the little boy included)! Sounds exactly like the type of place that fosters self esteem and confidence, right? The weirdest part? The kids appearing on the show were actually, for the most part, incredibly well-adjusted. Aside from waking up at 4 a.m. every day to complete their homework, go to school and then spend the rest of the evening dancing their hearts away (or for their mothers’ love,

whichever), they’re perfectly normal human beings. Sure, they look grown-up in their layers of rouge, lipstick and mascara and they act even more grown-up when holding back tears after being told how utterly pathetic one of their routines was. They look like grown-ups. But they’re not. They’re kids. I’m not one to judge what children should and shouldn’t be doing, but as a woman who spent a large part of her preteen, teenage, young adult and adult years hating the way she looked, not feeling good enough for not being skinny enough and trying desperately to use makeup to cover up whatever imperfection I liked the least, I can’t help but wonder what sort of brainwashing we’re setting up for these mini-models to be. Do you know what you’re doing to your children? Amanda Stewart appears Saturday in the Troy Daily News. She hopes Pearyn is a golfer, but if she likes rhythmic ribbons and batons, then so be it.

Brother of Ohio soldier: ‘We are a nation at war’ COLUMBUS (AP) — Americans shouldn’t forget that “we are a nation at war,” said the brother of one of three Ohio soldiers killed in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan. One of the victims, Capt. Nicholas Rozanski, of Dublin, “loved being in the National Guard,” his brother, Alex Rozanski, told WBNS-TV on Friday. “He loved being a soldier. He loved being a leader of soldiers.” Rozanski was among three members of the same Columbus-based National Guard unit killed in the Wednesday attack in Maimanah, the capital of Faryab province, the Defense Department said. Also killed were Sgt. 1st Class Shawn Hannon of Grove City and Sgt. 1st Class Jeffrey Rieck of Columbus. Four others were wounded. Americans going on with their day-to-day lives shouldn’t forget the troops, Alex Rozanski said. “We are a nation at war, and men are dying on a regular basis over there,” he said. “And people need to remember that.” The attack, by a suicide bomber on a motorcycle, killed at least 13 people Wednesday at a park in a relatively peaceful area of northern Afghanistan. It was part of an increase in violence at the start of the spring fighting season. The Taliban has claimed responsibility. The bomber’s target was unclear. The men killed were from the Guard’s 37th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, according to the Ohio Adjutant General’s Department. Wounded were 1st Lt. Christopher Rosebrock of Hicksville; Spc. Austin Weigle of Bryan; Cpl. Everett Haworth of Olmsted Township in Cuyahoga County; and Pvt. 1st Class Jacob Williams of Somerville. Everett R. Haworth, the father of Everett Halworth, said his son has a broken leg and shrapnel wounds to his shoulder from the explosion. He said the injuries are not life-threatening and he’s expected to recover. He said his son will be taken to the U.S. for surgery. “He’s in good spirits,” Everett R. Halworth said. “The prognosis is good. But the healing process will be long.” His son has a wife and 6-


DONALD E. PLUMMER SEBRING, Fla. — Donald E. Plummer, 82, of Sebring, Fla., passed away Jan. 15, 2012, at his home. He was born March 15, 1929, to Floyd E. and Dortha M. Reighard Plummer and resided in Dayton, Ohio, until becoming a winter resident of Sebring in 1993. He worked for Dayton Power and Light for 40 years and was a member of the DP&L Retirees. Don was a member of the PLUMMER Family Campers and RVers since 1959 and held many state and national offices. He was a member at Grace Church of Sebring. Don loved camping, attending church and spending time with his family. He is survived by his wife of 61 years,

Wilma (Howe) of Sebring; daughter, Linda (David) Hennie of Dayton; sons, Dale (Alison) Plummer of Idaho Springs, Colo., and G. Scott (Cheryl) Plummer of Tucson, Ariz.; sisters, Claretta (Richard) Miller of West Milton and Mary (Jeff) Liles of Troy; grandchildren, Cherie (Hennie) Siehl, Michael (Misty) Hennie, Shata Plummer and Levi Plummer; seven great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held to celebrate Don’s life at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 15, 2012, at Happy Corner Church of the Brethren, 7037 Union Road, Clayton, OH 45315, with Pastor Michael Hennie officiating. Memorial donations may be made to SERVE/FCRV Scholarship Fund, 408 Lincoln Ave., Troy, OH 45377.

Flags ordered at half-staff COLUMBUS (AP) — Gov. John Kasich has ordered flags at the Capitol and other state facilities in central Ohio to be flown at half-staff on Monday in honor of three Ohio soldiers killed in Afghanistan. In a Friday statement, the governor also offered his condolences to the soldiers’ families and friends.

month-old daughter, he said. Rozanski’s wife, Jennifer, told The Columbus Dispatch that a family military history compelled him to join the Guard in 2003. He had deployed to Kosovo in 2004 and to Iraq in 2008. “He did what he needed to do and what he signed up to do,” she told WCMH-TV. “I want him to be remembered as a hero and that he was a great leader in the National Guard and he cared about his soldiers,” she said. A father of two girls, he worked for the Defense Logistics Agency at Defense

Supply Center Columbus. Hannon’s family said he felt it was a privilege to serve his country and was proud to be a soldier, a job he did for nearly 20 years while also working as a lawyer. Hannon, chief legal counsel for the Ohio Department of Veterans Affairs, joined the state agency last year after working for a Columbus law firm. Survivors include his wife and their 9-month-old son. Hannon was a graduate of Capital University law school in Columbus and had been a lawyer for six years. Rieck, the father of a 15year-old son, had served in the Army and was in Iraq for longer than a year heading to before Afghanistan. He worked full time in the Guard’s Family Readiness office. Friend Nicole Kraft, an Ohio State University journalism professor, said Rieck was “one of those people who really believed in what he was doing.” “He was all about being an American and doing his part,” she told The Dispatch. “He really felt it was a role for which he was perhaps it’s too strong a word destined.”

Rabbi has collector’s items Books tied to Holocaust survivors COLUMBUS (AP) — As Holocaust survivors languished in displacement camps around Europe at the close of World War II, the U.S. Army gave them some of their first tangible connections to their faith since before the war: passages from the Talmud. Now two pieces of that limited printing have ended up in the hands of an Ohio rabbi, who used one in a pre-Passover service on Friday even as historians ponder their rarity. The two tractates, or passages that help make up a collection of religious and civil law known as the Talmud, are dated 1946 and offer guidance on marriage and vows. They were created to help displaced Holocaust survivors whose belongings, including religious materials, were destroyed during the war. Some experts say it’s unclear how


many copies were printed or how many exist today, but they all agree they’re a collector’s item that offers a glimpse into a unique printing agreement that U.S. armed forces had following the war. Rabbi Areyah Kaltmann, who runs the Lori Schottenstein Chabad Center in Columbus, snagged the two tractates from a New York City auction house for $600 on March 21. The Australian native said he owns several other tractates published in later years. “I like these things because they’re meaningful,” the 45-year-old said. The Talmud is a compilation of Jewish oral law and stories about 1,500 years old. Historians and archivists say it’s also one of the few religious materials the U.S. Army ever authorized for publication. Abby Meyer, who works at New York-based Kesten-

baum and Company, which specializes in selling Judaic items and sold the books to Kaltmann, said the auction house has sold only a handful of single tractates in its more than 20 years in business. Lenore Bell, library director at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., said the books are probably the first two tractates of the Talmud to be produced in Germany with the authorization of the U.S. Army after the war. “What’s significant is the publication itself and how important it was to provide these texts to help rebuild the religious lives of survivors,” she said. “And the U.S. Army contributed to that process.” The tractates, called Kiddushin and Nedarim, are the only two published in 1946 because they were the most complete copies available at the time.

Interfaith ‘pilgrims’ circle world on quest CLAREMONT, Calif. (AP) — Frederic and AnneLaure Pascal are devout Roman Catholics who built their lives around their religion. When she lost her job last year, the young couple decided on an unlikely expression of their religious commitment: a worldwide “interfaith pilgrimage” to places where peace has won out over dueling dogmas. Since October, the French couple has visited 11 nations from Iraq to Malaysia in an odyssey to find people of all creeds who have dedicated their lives to overcoming religious intolerance in some of the world’s most divided and war-torn corners. The husband-and-wife team blogs about their adventures and their own soul-searching and takes short video clips for the project they’ve dubbed the Faithbook Tour. The Pascals travel on a shoestring budget, kept afloat by 115 individual donors who are mostly friends and family. They say their travels are meant to illuminate examples of hope and peace in a world that is too often torn apart by faithdriven fervor. Their conversation, in a mix of French and English, is peppered with quotes from Mahatma Gandhi, ancient Chinese proverbs and references to their inspiration, St. Francis of Assisi. They began the threeweek U.S. leg of their trip late last month after arriving in California jetlagged from Japan and will visit Israel before hanging up their backpacks. “There is a saying, ‘A tree that falls makes more noise than a forest that grows.’ My aim was to meet the people who make the forest grow and not the people who make the tree fall,” said Frederic, 29, as the couple took a break during a recent visit to Claremont Lincoln University, an interreligious graduate institute in Southern California. “We have to be the mirror to reflect their light.” On its face, the project seems almost naive, but in


This Feb. 20 photo provided by Frederic and Anne-Laure Pascal shows Christian and Muslim children dancing together at a camp dedicated to fostering friendship in Al-Qosh, Kurdistan, an autonomous region of Iraq, one of the many stops on the Pascals’ interfaith journey around the world. The French couple started their journey in October, 2011, and will have visited more than a dozen nations before their journey is finished this spring. practice, the Pascals’ blend of religious journalism and personal exploration has brought them face-to-face with some of the world’s top religious thinkers and deposited them in some of the most forgotten parts of the planet. In their five months on the road, the couple has trekked through the Sahel in the West African nation of Burkina Faso, explored interfaith schools in the slums of Cairo and traveled across the Iraqi desert in the dead of night to reach a camp dedicated to Christian and Muslim children. Along the way, they have felt their own faith deepen. “What really hit me in Egypt is the Muslim call to prayer. The more I heard that call, the more I was called back to my own faith and the more I asked myself, ‘How do I pray? Do I pray regularly? Am I faithful in my prayer or not?’” said Anne-Laure, 28. “There were a lot of things like that where, in meeting others, we

were brought back our own faith and how we live our faith.” The idea for the trip came last year after AnneLaure’s contract as a librarian at the Catholic University in Lille wasn’t renewed. Frederic decided to take a sabbatical from his job editing dozens of parish newsletters. The couple, who met a decade ago through a youth group, delayed plans to buy a house and start a family and instead spent 10 months narrowing down what countries they would visit and setting up a foundation to finance their travels. They started their tour in October in Assisi, Italy, to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Pope John Paul II’s World Day of Prayer for Peace, a 1986 gathering of a rainbow of international religious leaders. From there, the Pascals set out to visit interfaith projects in nearly a dozen nations, including Tunisia, Algeria, Burkina Faso,

and Muslims in the West African nation of Burkina Faso who work together to trap rainwater and maintain holding ponds in parched desert landscape; mingled with Sri Lankan leaders at a lay Buddhist monastery in Kyushu, Japan; and stayed for a week with oppressed Christian families living in the Iraqi autonomous region of Kurdistan. In the U.S., they began their visit touring classrooms and talking with students at Claremont Lincoln, an interreligious graduate school 30 miles east of Los Angeles where students of all faiths study together in a unique experiment that began last year. They will also stop in San Francisco, New York, Washington, D.C., Richmond, Va., and Philadelphia before heading to Israel next month. For both, the most memorable stop on their trip was in Iraq, where they spent a week in Irbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan.

Try to keep in touch with your brother on a limited basis

Today: 5 p.m.: Steel Dreams 6 p.m.: Sport Pilot TV 8 p.m.: Spotlight

Dear Annie: My 64-year-old brother has refused to talk to my 86-year-old father for nearly 10 years. When our mother died, Dad married a nice Christian widow. He then sold the family home. He and his new wife built a new one in another town. My brother still thinks Dad should have split the sale profit with his children since half the house belonged to our mother. As far as I am concerned, Dad was not obligated to do this. By law, my mother's assets passed to her surviving spouse, which means Dad owned the house outright. He lives solely on his Social Security benefits and needed the money. My brother has had multiple sclerosis for 30 years. He and his family struggled financially, and my parents gave them a lot of money over the years to keep them afloat. For my brother to want more is shocking. My other siblings and I don't feel entitled to any of Dad's money. My brother's children are grown. When his daughter married four years ago, he didn't invite Dad to the wedding. She is expecting a child, and Dad learned about it through other family members. He is deeply hurt by this. Dad's health is starting to deteriorate. He has tried to make contact with my brother several times, to no avail. My siblings are ready to give up. Our brother spends no holidays with us and doesn't get in touch for any reason. I suggested Dad leave him alone. There is nothing he can do at this point. Do you agree? If not, what do you suggest? — Puzzled in Indiana Dear Indiana: How sad that your brother is willing to abandon his family over money. After 10 years, it's doubtful he will rethink his sense of entitlement. We suggest you keep in touch on a Christmas-card level, sending birthday wishes once a year, keeping him updated about Dad's health. He may not respond, but it requires only minimal effort and leaves the door open should he ever change his mind. Dear Annie: Is it OK to tell a woman that her husband had a three-year affair? I have ample proof because the Other Woman happens to be a dear friend of mine. The husband is the most selfish person I have ever met. If it were me, I would absolutely want to know. However, I understand that not all women are like me. The Other Women would rather not speak up, although she would tell the truth if asked. However, I believe that ship has sailed. The wife once had suspicions, but her manipulative husband managed to convince her otherwise. So, should I tell her or not? — Unsure in Miami Dear Unsure: Some women can live with the illusion that their husbands are faithful even if they suspect otherwise, but having the truth shoved in their faces makes them angry -- not with the husband, but with the messenger. You obviously don't like this man and would enjoy seeing him suffer, but the news would mostly hurt his wife. If there is a chance she has contracted an STD from her philandering husband, she should be told. Otherwise, please stay out of it. Dear Annie: My heart goes out to "Lonely in New York," the 70years-young lady who would be happy kissing, hugging, cuddling and having a sex life. I am in a similar situation with my wife. You should put the two of us together, thereby solving two problems at the same time, without either of us having to leave our marriages. How about it? — Lonely in Kelowna Dear Lonely: Sorry, but we don't run a matchmaking service. And there are inherent risks in connecting anonymous readers with each other. Please find a better solution to your problem than cheating on your wife. To our Jewish readers: A happy and healthy Passover.

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


Here is the clean dope on your soap Dear Readers: Did you know that there is a difference between deodorant soap and antibacterial soap? According to my friends at the American Cleaning Institute (, deodorant soap is designed to get rid of odors on the body. Antibacterial soaps contain specific ingredients that control the growth of germs on the skin, and they can “provide extra protection against bacteria that may cause many common illnesses,” says the institute. Using deodorant soap is a good way to freshen up daily. Using antibacterial soap is a good idea after doing certain activities, such as handling pets,

Hints from Heloise Columnist using the restroom, changing a diaper and, of course, before preparing and eating a meal. When you use antibacterial soap, a tiny amount of germ-controlling ingredients is left on the skin and slows the reproduction of germs. Lathering up with plain soap does not stop germs from repro-

ducing and multiplying, but is still a good way to wash your hands. And sing “Happy Birthday” twice so you’ll wash for the suggested 20 seconds. — Heloise PET PAL Dear Readers: Gerry in Burnham, Maine, sent a picture of her black, white and gray cat, Rascal. Rascal likes to stand up and clap his paws at his toys! To see Rascal and our other Pet Pals, visit and click on “Pets.” — Heloise HINTS FROM HIM Dear Heloise: Thank you for all the wonderful hints. When I went off to college, my mother made sure that I could take care

of myself — that is, separate whites from colors in the laundry, and cook an egg. Since then, “Hints From Heloise” has kept me going: • I cut a stack of paper towels into quarters. One-quarter of a paper towel serves well for most wipe-ups and saves a lot of paper! • Also, I save lids from the plastic containers of sour cream, cottage cheese, etc., and use them to separate glasses in the dishwasher so they won’t rub against each other. I read your column in The (Vancouver, Wash.) Columbian. — James in Camas, Wash.



Saturday, April 7, 2012










HOROSCOPE Saturday, April 7, 2012 Your leadership qualities could become much stronger in the year ahead than they’ve ever been. There are some strong indications that you’ll create and oversee a daring, innovative enterprise. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Although you can accomplish a lot for yourself right now, it might not be a good day to mend fences with a coworker. The other party needs much more time to be able to heal. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Instead of doing things that could add to your resources and turn a profit, you might do anything but. Don’t let your emotions override your common sense. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — The only way to get others to follow you is to lead by example. If you attempt to be overly assertive or dictatorial, all you’ll do is create more problems for yourself. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — If you’re fearful of being taken advantage of by others, there’s a chance you could conduct yourself in ways that exploit other people first. Don’t do it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — It’s generally unwise to do business with friends, but this could be one of those days when you’ll do so anyway. If that’s what you feel you have to do, be extremely careful. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Take care not to do anything that makes you look good at the expense of another. Even if you get away with it for the moment, it will cost you dearly down the line. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Although you might do some nice things for others based on a personal desire to get something from them, nothing will change and the world will treat you the same as it always did. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Even if you usually do everything for yourself, you might have to depend on others to open doors for you at this time. Unfortunately, their priorities and yours could differ. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — When it comes to partnership arrangements, you’re going to have to be firm and decisive in order to succeed at getting what you want. If you aren’t, you won’t. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Don’t look to others to quell your emotional distress, because it isn’t likely they would be up to that kind of assignment. Only time will heal what ails you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Avoid at all costs arguing with friends over silly, minor social issues. An innocent discussion could quickly turn nasty if someone says the wrong thing. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — If you hope to finalize a matter of critical importance, it is going to take strong willpower on your part. Coasting along won’t work this time.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Saturday, April 7, the 98th day of 2012. There are 268 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight: On April 7, 1922, the Teapot Dome scandal had its beginnings as Interior Secretary Albert B. Fall signed a secret deal to lease U.S. Navy petroleum reserves to his friends, oilmen Harry F. Sinclair and Edward L. Doheny. On this date: In 1788, an expedition led by Gen. Rufus Putnam established

a settlement at present-day Marietta, Ohio. In 1927, the image and voice of Commerce Secretary Herbert Hoover were transmitted live from Washington to New York in the first successful long-distance demonstration of television. In 1939, Italy invaded Albania, which was annexed less than a week later. In 1948, the World Health Organization was founded in Geneva. In 1962, nearly 1,200 Cuban

exiles tried by Cuba for their roles in the failed Bay of Pigs invasion were convicted of treason. In 1983, space shuttle astronauts Story Musgrave and Don Peterson took the first U.S. space walk in almost a decade as they worked in the open cargo bay of Challenger for nearly four hours. Today’s Birthdays: Actor James Garner is 84. Actor Jackie Chan is 58. College and Pro Football Hall-of-Famer Tony Dorsett is 58.

Syrian refugees flee violence, talk of mass graves REYHANLI, Turkey (AP) — After days of relentless shelling and sniper attacks, thousands of Syrian refugees streamed across the border into Turkey with horrific accounts Friday of mass graves, massacres and burned-out homes. The latest reports of escalating violence fueled accusations that President Bashar Assad is rushing to stamp out as much of the year-old uprising as he can before a U.N.-brokered cease-fire next week. The trigger for the new waves of refugees was an offensive in Idlib province, which borders Turkey and has become increasingly rebellious against the Assad regime. Activists reported about 100 dead in the villages of Taftanaz and Killi in recent days. A photograph provided to The Associated Press by a Syrian activist showed at least a dozen corpses wrapped in blankets in what appeared to be a mass grave in Taftanaz. The AP could not verify the authenticity of the photograph, but witnesses also described a mass grave. “They destroyed the whole village,” a refugee who asked to be identified by only one name, Anas, told the AP on Friday after fleeing Killi. “If he has to kill, Bashar would even kill 1 million people. He doesn’t care.” Hikmet Saban, another Syrian refugee who reached Turkey, described the devastation in Taftanaz, located several miles outside the city of Idlib. “Helicopters and tanks are bombarding continuously,” he told Turkey’s state-run Anadolu agency.

“Taftanaz has been burnt to the ground for three days.” Activists posted video they said showed a helicopter gunship firing a missile at Taftanaz and a mosque hit by shelling. The escalating violence has dimmed hopes that the fighting, which the U.N. says has killed more than 9,000 people, will end anytime soon. The country appears to be spiraling toward civil war a fearsome development that could bring a regional conflagration. A vital geopolitical linchpin, Syria borders five other nations and has close ties to Iran and powerful militant groups, such as Lebanon’s Hezbollah. Assad last week accepted a cease-fire deadline brokered by international envoy Kofi Annan, which calls for his forces to pull out of towns and cities by Tuesday and for everyone to lay down their arms by 6 a.m. local time Thursday. Western leaders have cast doubt on Assad’s intentions, suggesting he is playing for time and is not serious about the plan, which aims to pave the way for talks between the regime and the opposition on a political solution. Syria denies that the revolt is a popular uprising at all, saying instead that it is facing a foreign conspiracy by armed gangs and terrorists who want to destroy the country. The revolt began in March 2011 with mostly peaceful protests, but the violent government crackdown has led many to take up weapons. A fighting force called the Free Syrian Army, made up largely of army defectors, is determined to bring down the regime by force of arms.

Who’s driving those big wheels? We’ve all been there, hot frustration roiling within as we trail an 18-wheeler, laboring slowly up a hill on a two-lane highway. Rarely do we think about what is in that truck or who is driving it. The American Trucking Associations (ATA) reports that there are over 3.4 million professional truck drivers nationwide – delivering the goods U.S. consumers need every day of the year. Professional truck drivers are more essential to the national economy than ever before and they are delivering America's freight safely and on time every day.

Let's not forget that everything we eat, everything we wear, and everything in our home came in a truck, and even though most of us are frustrated by the traffic they may cause, they play a major role in keeping America moving. Drivers on average log over 432 billion miles per year to bring fresh produce and frozen foods to distribution centers all over the continent. ATA numbers show that trucks delivered 10.7 billion tons of freight in 2007, or 69 percent of total U.S. freight tonnage.

Today is the perfect time to offer a little drive-by salute to the truckers you share the road with. Remember, too, that trucks have several blind spots that make it hard for them to see you at all times. Be patient with them as they are big and slow and need lots of space. If you get annoyed by them and cut them off or jam the breaks, you are only playing with your own safety. Drive smart and share the road with them as they are the ones who are making your lifestyles possible.

F-1 race stuck in political struggle MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) — A year after an anti-government revolt forced Bahrain’s rulers to cancel the kingdom’s coveted Formula One race, the grand prix is again smack in the middle of a power struggle. Protesters aiming to break the Sunni regime’s grip on power have stepped up their campaign against the event holding rallies across the island, plastering anti-Formula One posters on walls and criticizing the F1 chief and race drivers on social media websites. The country’s leadership is determined to stage the April 22 race as it seeks to show signs of stability nearly 14 months after the country’s Shiite majority began a sustained uprising seeking a greater voice in the kingdom’s affairs of the kingdom, which is home to the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet. But opposition supporters are equally determined to spoil the party and instead draw attention to their grievances. “We don’t want Formula One in our country,” Ali Mohammed said during a recent rally against the Bahrain GP in the capital, Manama. “They are killing us every day with tear gas. They have no respect for human rights or democracy. Why would we keep silent?” “No one will enjoy the F1 in Bahrain with cries for freedom from the inside and outside of the race,” he added. Human rights groups also have criticized the decision of the world racing body to reinstate the Bahrain race this year. Bahrain’s Shiite majority is demanding more rights and opportunities, equal to the Sunni minority that rules Bahrain. Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa owns the rights to grand prix and serves as commander of the armed forces. Although the F1 race is the island’s premier international event, many Bahrainis see it as a vanity project of the rulers, who are behind the crackdown on dissent. The race was canceled last year after the authorities imposed martial law and launched a punishing crackdown on dissent.

IndyCar holds tests


In this March 30 photo, NASCAR truck series driver Jeb Burton, second from left, watches his crew chief, Trip Bruce, left, talk with Jeff Burton, second from right, and Ward Burton, right, before NASCAR truck series practice at Martinsville Speedway in Martinsville, Va.

Like father, like son Ward Burton goes from racer to racing dad MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) — Ward Burton’s transition from race car driver to parent of a race car driver hasn’t always been easy. In at least one instance, watching as son Jeb, now 19, as he tore up the track was downright frightening. “On his first go kart race, the first lap he made, Ward said, ‘My chest. I don’t know if I can take this. I feel like I’m going to have a heart attack,’” Ward’s wife, Tabitha, recalled, laughing at her husband, who raced 13 years in the Sprint Cup Series. “And I said, ‘Welcome to my world. This is what it’s like. Wait until he’s in a car and someone’s wrecking him. You want to kill somebody.’” Being a spectator has gotten easier over time, and last weekend the Burtons had to travel only about 60 miles from their South Boston home to see Jeb take his next big step forward as he made his debut in the Camping World Truck Series. In perhaps the tamest race at Martinsville Speedway in the history of the truck series, he started seventh, finished 13th and finished all 250 laps, essentially meeting his goals of a good qualifying run, a respect-building clean race and a top15 finish. The race was the first of five Jeb will make in the truck series this year, sponsored by State Water Heaters, and while the Burtons hope to find sponsorship for more races,

they are still adjusting to being bystanders, and in Ward’s case, parttime coach. “Coach,” Jeb said when asked if his father is more father than coach. “Sometimes me and him don’t agree on everything.” Ward, who always tried to be in command of his car when he was racing, admittedly struggles to keep quiet sometimes. “The problem with me is I’m real quick to assume things when I need to sometimes slow down because he may be saying something different than what I think he’s saying,” Ward said. “But the big picture is, this is a good opportunity for Jeb.” During his career, Ward Burton won five times in the Sprint Cup Series, including the 2002 Daytona 500. He also won the prestigious Southern 500, but got out of racing after the 2007 when he decided he would take a well-funded ride, or none at all. By then, Jeb was already well on his way up the racing ladder. He started at 12, and progressed from motocross to go karts, then limited late models and finally late models before the family decided he was ready to go on to more ambitious things. To ease the transition, Ward teamed Jeb up with Trip Bruce, who was crew chief for Ward later in his career. It’s an arrangement Bruce

said he and Ward discussed in 2000, and one that has helped Ward step back, at least a little bit. “You have to learn to kind of sit back and watch, be not as involved,” Bruce said, “and Ward said, ‘You know, I was always nervous before a practice session or qualifying as a driver, but nowhere near as much as he is standing here watching Jeb do it.’” Jeb would have raced in the season-opening truck race at Daytona, but hadn’t been cleared yet by NASCAR, so Ward drove the truck and finished eighth. That was just fine with Tabitha, who wasn’t ready to see her son driving on a 2 1/2 mile trioval. During the race, Jeb was in radio contact with his dad, offering some coaching of his own. “He told me on the radio, ‘Ride in the back and watch them wreck,’” Ward said, laughing at the role reversal. “And then at the last restart, he said, ‘OK dad, now it’s time to go. You can’t be dilly-dallying around any longer.’” By the time the team unloaded at Martinsville, Tabitha was confident Jeb was ready, and that helped her, too. “It’s so much more emotional for me,” she said. “I was always a supporter of Ward, a big cheerleader, but I quietly supported him. I stayed with the kids.”

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The new IndyCars are expected to take the tension level even higher at Indianapolis 500 practices this year. The IndyCar Series held an open test Wednesday to gain information about its new cars before Indy 500 practice begins. Practice opens May 12, qualifying will be May 19-20 and the race is May 27. While drivers have liked how the new cars have performed on street and road courses, there is uncertainty about how they will perform on ovals. Indy will be the first race of the year held on an oval track. “It will be hard,” Tony Kanaan of KV Racing Technology said. “You can see how competitive the series is already. Once you’re going to get here, it’s all new to everybody. There’s so many things that can happen that are unknown, and this place makes it hard just being this place.” Drivers participating included Kanaan, Scott Dixon, Helio Castroneves, Takuma Sato, Mike Conway, Ed Carpenter, JR Hildebrand, Justin Wilson and Marco Andretti. Some liked how the cars felt on the 2.5-mile track. “I went out of the pits and I went flat out right away,” Kanaan said. “I have to say the new aerokit is a little bit better. The engine manufacturers are still trying to dial in a bunch of the things they are trying to do, and in one day, I don’t think we’ll be able to do it. But it felt good.” Sato of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing wasn’t as excited. “Right away, I felt very different from last year’s car, which we need to address right away,” he said. “We need to manipulate to get an ability to get more speed before we get to full speed.” Castroneves, the threetime Indy 500 champion from Penske Racing, expects plenty of speed. “The car, I believe, is going to create a tremendous amount of draft,” he said. “One of the exciting parts about the month of May will be the lap times. People are going to be amazed about the big difference.”

IndyCar’s Newgarden showing promise, maturity BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Rookie Josef Newgarden bumped Justin Wilson during his IndyCar debut, then made a point to apologize afterward and assure the veteran he wasn’t going to make a habit of driving that way. The gesture was no rookie move. “That’s reassuring to me that, OK, he made a mistake and understands he made a mistake,” Wilson said. “If you’re learning like that, he’s going to be a race-

winning contender. He’s learning fast. “He’s definitely got what it takes to win races in this. I don’t think it’ll be too long before we see him do that.” Newgarden apparently has the talent to go with those good manners. The 21-year-old Tennessean who dominated Firestone Indy Lights in his lone season has navigated the first two races of his IndyCar career without major incidents and with solid 11thand 15th-place finishes.

The start has been far from problem-free Newgarden had to deal with damaged front wings both times but still was promising considering his newcomer status. He didn’t even get to take laps in the new Dallara DW12 until 16 days before the opener at St. Petersburg after Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing only landed an engine manufacturer when it signed with Honda on Feb. 24.

He still has carved a reputation as an up-andcoming young driver. Being a fresh-faced, affable American who hails directly from Indy Lights, IRL’s developmental league, doesn’t hurt in a sport whose biggest current stars are from other countries. “He’s a very successful All-American guy next door,” said team owner Sarah Fisher, who signed Newgarden in early December.

“His brand fit our team very well. It just seemed like he was the total package.” Newgarden has been a quick study at every level of racing so far, since taking up karting at age 13 and winning World Kart Championships from 200507. He advanced through the Skip Barber Regional Series, then spent two years in Europe, where he finished second in the British Formula Ford Championship in 2009.

Leaps and bounds Troy girls cruise to win at home invite BY COLIN FOSTER Sports Writer Several teams came to compete at Friday night’s Troy Invitational. But none of them could keep up with the depth, talent and experience of the Troy girls. Led by Todda Norris, Ashley Rector and Catelyn Schmiedebusch, the Trojans were leaps and bounds ahead of the rest, winning the meet with a grand total of 168.5 points. Fairborn and Northmont tied for second, each ending up with 72. All three girls, along with Gracie Huffman, combined to win the 4x200 in a time of 1:47.40. Norris won the 100 TROY (12.89 seconds), cruised to victory in the 200 (26.61) and took second in the long jump (15-0). “I feel wonderful,” Norris said. “I love running — that’s what I do. I felt a little nervous doing four events, but I pulled through.” Schmiedebusch placed first as an individual in two events, earning first in the 100 hurdles (16.41 seconds) and first in the 300 hurdles (49.72). Rector placed first in the 400 (1:00.92) and won in the long jump (16-10.5), beating out Norris. “That’s our little competition thing,” Norris said of Rector’s long jump win. “I wanted her to Troy’s Branden Nosker celebrates as he crosses win, she needed that.” the finish line Friday.

Troy Invite


Milton-Union’s Sergei Brubaker finished second in the 1,600 Friday at the Troy Invitational.

■ CONTINUED FROM 17 for 4 with a double, Madison Linn was 3 for 4 with a double and Kristy Brown was 3 for 4. But a five-run fifth inning by Lakota East proved to be the difference. “When we score six, we usually can win the game,” Kadel said. “We gave them a lot of second chances, and they did cash them in.” Gahanna Against Lincoln, the Vikings put up the decisive five-spot, this time in the seventh inning, that allowed them to hang on. Kiesewetter was 3 for 4 with four RBIs, Linn was 3 for 5 with two RBIs, Brittany Garrison was 3 for 5 with a double and triple, Brookhart and Sam Denlinger were each 2 for 4 and Brown doubled. “We put up enough runs in the second game to be able to hold them off,” Kadel said. Miami East faces Milton-Union and Brookville in another trimatch today.

■ CONTINUED FROM 17 “Having those three juniors (Norris, Rector and Schmiedebusch), they kind of lead the way for us,” Troy coach Kurt Snyder said. “Todda came in with three firsts and a second. She PRed in the 100 and 200. Ashley is real close. She was a bit ticked off that she didn’t get the meet record in the 400. She wasn’t happy because she knows she can do better, but she won the long jump, the 400 and was apart of the 4x200 team that won. Catelyn took five days off, went to the Final Four. But she came back even stronger with better times than she had when she left.” Hibbler, Sharice Huffman, Shanelle Byrd and Norris won the 4x100 team (51.02 seconds). The Trojans team of Sarah Adkins, McKenna Poling, Leah Soutar and Melissa Short earned second in the 4x800 (11:06.01). The freshman Huffman also did well individually, earning fourth in the 200 (27.44 seconds) and taking fifth in the high jump (4-8). “Gracie Huffman, a freshman sprinter, has really been a great addition to our team,” Snyder said. “She placed in the high jump, placed in the 200 and was apart of our relay teams that did well. She makes us think we are already faster in the relay events this year than we were last year.” Katie-Grace Sawka established a new school record in the 2,000 steeplechase, finishing third overall in the event (8:24.19). Tori Schlarman placed fifth (9:06.31) and Hibbler got third in the 100 (13.39 seconds). Jaden Huggins was fifth in the 300 hurdles (53.01) and Maci Wadsworth placed fourth in the 800 (2:44.45).

In the 4x400, Poling, Melissa Short, Mariah Sano and Soutar finished fourth (4:26.98). Jessica Blakes finished second in the discus (1074) and tossed her way to third in the shot (30-1). Troy’s Mariah Sano and Abby Brinkman tied for sixth in the pole vault (80). The Tippecanoe girls finished the meet in fourth (71 points). Ashley Badertscher earned second in the 100 (13.35 seconds) and took third in the long jump (1411), Tipp’s Jenna Kremer finished fifth in the 1,600 (6:15.22) and sixth in the 800 (2:50.63).

Tippecanoe’s Rick Andrews runs the 3,200 Friday.

Troy’s Catelyn Schmiedebusch swept the hurdles events Friday at the Troy Invitational. came in fourth (8-6) and Megan Wray took fifth (86). • Boys The Troy boys got a good look at perennial Greater Western Ohio Conference powerhouse Trotwood on Friday evening. And the Trojans gave the Rams everything they could handle — but Trotwood struck when the meet was on the line, placing first in the final event, the 4x400, to edge Troy in the team standings. The Rams finished with 114 points to the Trojans’ 109.5. But on this night it was all about progress for the Trojans — and it showed as the 4x100 and 4x200 relay teams came within striking distance of breaking school records. The Trojans won the 4x100 as Miles Hibbler, Devante Bush, Zimmer and Nick James combined for a time of 43.16 seconds, holding off Trotwood (43.66). “The 4x100 team did outstanding,” Troy coach Deon Metz said. “Anytime you can beat Trotwood, which I can’t remember the last time we had a 4x100 team beat Trotwood, that’s saying something. They ran a 43.1 (seconds), which is a bigtime PR for this group. This group is getting close (to getting the record). “I’m still on the 4x100 team that has the record

— that’s how long it’s been there — and I’ve never even had a team that has gotten close. This team is getting close, and it’s exciting.” The 4x200 team of Bush, James, Blake Williams — a fifth-place finisher in the 200 (23.54 seconds) — and Zimmer came in second (1:30.94). “The 4x200 team is getting really, really close (to beating the school record),” Metz said. “They are right there, about 0.7 seconds off the record. That’s maybe a smoother handoff or coming out of the block harder, so I’m hoping that the record goes down within the next couple of weeks. That’s a record that has been around since even before I was in high school” Nick James won the 200 (22.19 seconds), Hibbler placed fifth in the long jump (18-5.50) and seventh in the high jump (56). The 4x800 team of Josh Enke, Auston Deaton, Jon Osman — who finished fourth in the 3,200 (10:11.01) — and Brandon Nosker held off the likes of GWOC foes Butler and Trotwood to emerge victorious in the event (8:25.61). Tippecanoe placed fourth overall in the event (8:35.61). The Trojans 4x400 team, consisting of Enke, Deaton, Austin Kyzer and Williams finished in eighth (3:42.92).

James was second in the 100 (11.03 seconds), while Hibbler placed fourth in the event (11.51). Deaton came in seventh in the 400 (53.37). Cody Fox placed fourth overall in the steeplechase (6:57.01) and fourth in the 1,600 (4:52.52). Dimitri Morgan earned eighth in the 110 hurdles (17.94 seconds). Josh Enke placed fourth overall in the 800 (2:04.10), Kurtis Johnson came in eighth in the 300 hurdles (47.48 seconds). Nosker placed sixth in the 3,200 (10:22.89), holding off Tipp’s Rick Andrews (10:26.81) and Grant Koch (10:32.01), who finished seventh and eighth, respectively. Seth Overla came in third in the discus (122-5), while Alex Dalton finished fifth (120-10). Logan Terrell placed third in the pole vault (13-6) and Steven Gohrband finished fourth (13-0). Fresh off of spring break and Thursday’s Miami East Invitational, Milton—Union brought only three runners to the meet on Friday. Sergei Brubaker placed second in the 1,600 (4:46.90). Jake Finfrock placed third in his signature event, the 400 (51.50 seconds). Winning the 400 — and setting a new meet record in the process — was Thurgood Marshall’s Alante Oliver (47.64 seconds). Milton’s Matt Howard earned fifth in the steeplechase (7:00.66) as the Bulldogs ended the meet with 18 points — which is not bad for only three runners. Tippecanoe finished in 10th overall (23 points). Andy Droesch was the best high jumper at the competition, taking first with a leap of 6-0, and Sam Wharton placed eighth in the 800 (2:05.80).

Gleason upset about leaked recording NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A recording of then-New Orleans defensive coordinator Gregg Williams urging players to deliver punishing hits on specific San Francisco players was released without approval from retired special teams standout Steve Gleason, who had helped a documentary filmmaker gain behind-the-scenes access to the Saints. “I feel deflated and disappointed. I feel frustrated and distracted,” Gleason said in a statement on his website. Gleason has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, and has allowed filmmaker Sean Pamphilon to capture his struggle with the incurable disease. He played for the Saints from 2000 to 2007 and maintains a strong relationship with the club, which has backed his efforts to improve the lives of those living with the debilitating symptoms of ALS. Gleason’s connections to the team and to Pamphilon allowed the documentarian to be in the room with the Saints defense ahead of New Orleans’ 36-32 playoff loss to San Francisco in January. “The Saints have been incredibly open and supportive of me and my family during my disease progression,” Gleason wrote. “From my perspective, the Saints have helped begin to shift the paradigm of how an NFL team should treat its players after retirement.” “I included Sean Pamphilon in some of these activities, because I felt my relationship with the Saints was an integral part of my overall journey,” Gleason said in the statement posted Friday. “The Saints trusted me and gave us unlimited access in

filming, and I, in turn, trusted Sean Pamphilon.” Gleason said there was an agreement that he and his family would own the rights to any recordings made of his interaction with the Saints and that “nothing can be released my explicit without approval.” “I did not authorize the public release of any recordings,” Gleason continued. Williams is suspended indefinitely for his admitted role overseeing a bounty system that rewarded Saints defenders with cash for painful hits during his tenure with the team from 2009 to 2011. The assistant coach left New Orleans after the playoff loss and was hired as defensive coordinator by the St. Louis Rams. The recording, which Pamphilon posted on one of his promotional websites, purports to capture Williams telling players to “put a lick” on 49ers receiver Kyle Williams to see if he had lingering effects from a concussion. Williams also tells his players to “beat (running back) Frank Gore’s head,” and “lay out” quarterback Alex Smith. He also reminds his players that receiver Michael Crabtree “becomes human when we … take out that outside ACL,” a reference to the anterior cruciate ligament in the receiver’s knee. Pamphilon did not respond to messages left by The Associated Press. He said in an email to The Times-Picayune that while some may accuse him of orchestrating a publicity grab, he felt compelled to release the audio because he believes deeply that “parents of children playing football MUST pay attention to the influence of men who will sacrifice their kids for W’s.”

Masters ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 another surprise — was club-kicking Tiger Woods. Just two weeks after Woods won Bay Hill by five shots and became an instant favorite for a fifth green jacket, he couldn’t make a putt and then hit only two greens on the back nine. He kept dropping the club out of his hands in disgust, and it reached a boiling point on the par-3 16th when he turned and kicked his 9iron some 15 yards. Woods didn’t make a birdie after the third hole and shot 75, his highest score at Augusta since 2004. “I can do this,” Woods said. “I’ve just got to be patient.” The eight-shot deficit was not nearly as daunting as the 39 players ahead of him — especially McIlroy, who was only one shot back. The 22-year-old U.S. Open champion started this tournament with a double bogey and has been trending upward ever since. McIlroy made two early birdies and was on his way. He drove the ball with authority, allowing him to take on the flags. With a tough par save on the 18th, he shot a 69. “I wouldn’t say I’m in a position to win yet, but we’ll see what happens tomorrow,” McIlroy said. “I feel like I’ve played solid golf the last two days — could have been a couple shots better, like probably everyone in the field is thinking. But I’m in a nice position, and I definitely would have taken it after the start yesterday.” Couples won the Masters in 1992 — McIlroy was not quite 3 back then — for his only green jacket, though he seems to give himself a chance whenever he shows up at Augusta. His back has been ailing him for close to two decades. It was so chilly when he teed off Friday that he had every reason to believe he was at the British Open. But he loves this course more than any other. He knows his way around. He knows how to score. No one — not even Jack Nicklaus — has a lower scoring average at the Masters of those who have played at least 100 rounds. “Can I win?” Couples said, repeating the question. “I believe I can. Yes.” Couples and Dufner, whose bogey from the bunker on the 18th hole gave him a 70, were at 5under 139.


Cavs ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 19 for the Raptors, who were seeking their first four-game winning streak since Nov. 17-24, 2010. Manny Harris started for Cleveland in place of Anthony Parker, who scored a season-high 27 points but bruised his sternum in Wednesday’s loss at Milwaukee. Parker is also expected to miss Sunday’s game at New Jersey. Harris, along with teammate Donald Sloan and Raptors teammates Alan Anderson and Ben Uzoh, was one of four starters from both squads who began the year in the NBA Development League. In all, Cleveland and Toronto featured seven players who have spent time in the D-League this season. A free throw by newly signed D-Leaguer Justin Dentmon put the Raptors up 64-51 early in the fourth before Cleveland roared back behind eight straight points by Jamison, including a pair of 3-pointers, pulling the Cavaliers within 65-59 with 9:10 left. Uzoh ended the run with a layup but, after a layup by Samuels, Jamison hit a jumper and then another 3, tying it at 66 with 6:56 remaining.
