Paperwork looms for Troy BOE Moore said teacher evaluation overviews are nearly complete. Moore said he, along with human resource director Marion Stout, had each building in the district to TROY help explain the teacher evaluation process. “We had excellent dialogue and Moore said a committee has been working on the revisions for the good questions,” Moore said, adding that the meetings with teachers last eight months. “We are in a pretty good spot were suggested by the teacher now,” Moore said. “It will be a lot of • See BOE on Page 2 documentation.”

Curriculum revisions, teacher evaluations and Race to the Top initiatives all waiting to be approved BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer

‘Iron Lady’ dies at age 87 Love her or loathe her, one thing’s beyond dispute: Margaret Thatcher transformed Britain. The Iron Lady, who ruled for 11 remarkable years, imposed her will on a fractious, rundown nation breaking the unions, triumphing in a far-off war, and selling off state industries at a record pace. She left behind a leaner government and more prosperous nation by the time a political mutiny ousted her from No. 10 Downing Street. Thatcher’s spokesman, Tim Bell, said the former prime minister died from a stroke Monday morning at the Ritz hotel in London. See Page 7.

The Troy City Schools board of education will have plenty of paperwork to approve with state curriculum changes as well as the federal education grant’s Race to

the Top, according to officials at the regular board meeting Monday. Director of Curriculum and Instruction Michael Moore said the board will have multiple curriculum revisions, teacher evaluations and Race to the Top initiatives to approve next month.

OK, I have a magazine problem Anyone who’s ever lived with me or merely seen the inside of my car knows I have a bit of a magazine problem. I tend to have a stack sitting at home and at least one in my purse, because you never know when you might get bored and need to soak up some fashion tips, celebrity gossip, or lifechanging essays. Any day can be made instantly better when something glossy and colorful arrives via snail mail. I’d like to think I have an excuse for my obsession. I was a magazine major, after all, and did intern at one back in the day. See Page 4.

Troy man arraigned on sex charge Pleads ‘not guilty’ to importuning BY WILL E SANDERS Civitas Media A Troy man who allegedly attempted to solicit sex from a juvenile female on Facebook who is three times younger than he is entered a not guilty plea at his arraignment in common pleas court Monday. Steven J. Marshall, 37, was indicted by a Miami County grand jury in March on one count of importuning, which is a third-degree felony that carries a potential prison sentence of between one to five years in prison and annual sex offender registration for 15 years, possibly longer.

and her family. Marshall will next appear in court at 3 p.m. April 15 for a pretrial hearing. Authorities said Marshall used the social networking website Facebook to contact and ultimately

attempt to solicit sex with a 12-yearold girl on three separate occasions before his alleged misconduct was reported to the Troy Police Department. Detectives later arrived at Marshall’s Troy home Feb. 24 and placed the man into custody. During his arrest Marshall told law enforcement he was “expecting” the police to arrive at his home for his previous conduct of communicating with the child and allegedly asking the girl for sex during a conversation. The mother of the victim in the case contacted the police after learning of an online discussion held between her pre-teen daughter and Marshall.

TROY allegedly stole more than $100,000 from a bank account that belonged to his father. Due to the amount of funds Tucker allegedly accessed and took the charge is a seconddegree felony, which is punishable with a potential prison sentence of between two to eight years in prison. If convicted, Tucker will

likely be ordered to make full restitution to the victim in the case. A court complaint states that Tucker began taking the money July 13, 2012, through the rest of the year and into 2013 before the authorities became involved. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled in the case for April 16 before Judge Gary Nasal. His bond is set at $50,000.


COLUMBUS (AP) — A state house committee will unveil its version of the Ohio two-year budget on Tuesday, and Gov. John Kasich’s plans to expand Medicaid under the federal health law won’t be included, The Associated Press has learned. A person with knowledge of the budget negotiations confirmed to the AP on Monday that Republican House lawmakers will strip the idea from the spending blueprint. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the information had not been made public. The budget-writing committee is also expected to include an additional $50 million per year for mental health and addiction services, the person said. The House Finance and Appropriations Committee will outline its version of Kasich’s $63.2 billion, twoyear spending blueprint on Tuesday afternoon. The governor’s proposed tax hike on oil and gas drillers and sales taxes on professional services also were expected to be dropped from the House’s budget. And the Republican-dominated committee wants to significantly rewrite Kasich’s proposed school-funding formula. The Medicaid expansion is one of the key components of the federal Affordable Care Act. Of the nearly 30 million people expected to gain insurance coverage under the law, about half would get it from the Medicaid expansion. A Supreme Court ruling allowed states to decide for themselves whether to expand the program. Many Republican lawmakers are averse to Democratic President Barack Obama’s law and resistant to expanding government programs. A leader in a conservative movement to take over the state’s Republican Party told state lawmakers a vote on extending Medicaid could hurt the party and their chances in 2014 elections. “This is a historic vote because it is my belief that passing Medicaid Expansion, or anything

That disparity helps explain why the job market remains tight and unemployment high. Even as openings have surged 11 percent in the past year, the number of people hired has declined. Why so many openings yet so few hires? Economists point to several factors: Some unemployed workers lack the skills employers want. Some companies may not be offering enough pay. And staffing firms say that in a still-fragile economy, many businesses seem hesitant to commit to new hires. They appear to be holding out for the perfect candidate. — Staff and wire reports

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — Scores of North Koreans of all ages planted trees as part of a forestation campaign armed with shovels, not guns. In the evening, women in traditional dress danced in the plazas to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the late leader Kim Jong Il’s appointment to a key defense post. Despite more warnings from their leaders of impending nuclear war, people in the capital gave no sense of panic. Chu Kang Jin, a Pyongyang resident, said everything is calm in the city. “Everyone, including me, is determined to turn out as one to fight for national reunification … if the enemies spark a war,” he added, using nationalist rhetoric common among many North Koreans when speaking to the media. The North’s latest warning, issued by its Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, urged foreign companies and tourists to leave South Korea. “The situation on the Korean Peninsula is inching close to a thermonuclear war due to the evermore undisguised hostile actions of the United States and the South Korean puppet warmongers and their moves for a war against” North Korea, the statement said Tuesday.

There was no sign of an exodus of foreign companies or tourists from South Korea. White House spokesman Jay Carney called the statement “more unhelpful rhetoric.” “It is unhelpful, it is concerning, it is provocative,” he said. The warning appeared to be an attempt to scare foreigners into pressing their governments to pressure Washington and Seoul to act to avert a conflict. Analysts see a direct attack on Seoul as extremely unlikely, and there are no overt signs that North Korea’s army is readying for war, let alone a nuclear one. North Korea has been girding for a showdown with the U.S. and South Korea, its wartime foes, for months. The Korean War ended in 1953 with an armistice, not a peace treaty, leaving the peninsula still technically at war. In December, North Korea launched a satellite into space on a rocket that Washington and others called a cover for a long-range missile test. The North followed that with its third underground nuclear test in February, a step toward mastering the technology for mounting an atomic bomb on a missile. Tightened U.N. sanctions that followed drew the ire of North Korea, which accused Washington and Seoul of leading the campaign

against it. Annual U.S.-South Korean military drills south of the border have further incensed Pyongyang, which sees them as practice for an invasion. Last week, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un enshrined the pursuit of nuclear weapons which the North characterizes as a defense against the U.S. as a national goal, along with improving the economy. North Korea also declared it would restart a mothballed nuclear complex. Adm. Samuel Locklear, commander of U.S. Pacific Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee in Washington on Tuesday that he concurred with an assessment by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., calling the tension between North Korea and the West the worst since the end of the Korean War. “The continued advancement of the North’s nuclear and missile programs, its conventional force posture, and its willingness to resort to asymmetric actions as a tool of coercive diplomacy creates an environment marked by the potential for miscalculation,” Locklear told the panel. He said the U.S. military and its allies would be ready if North Korea tries to strike. Heightening speculation about a provocation, foreign diplomats

reported last week that they had been advised by North Korea to consider evacuating by Wednesday. However, Britain and others said they had no immediate plans to withdraw from Pyongyang. South Korean President Park Geun-hye, who has sought to reengage North Korea with dialogue and humanitarian aid since taking office in February, expressed exasperation Tuesday with what she called the “endless vicious cycle” of Seoul answering Pyongyang’s hostile behavior with compromise, only to get more hostility. U.S. and South Korean defense officials have said they’ve seen nothing to indicate that Pyongyang is preparing for a major military action. State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said there was “no specific information to suggest imminent threat to U.S. citizens or facilities” in South Korea. The U.S. Embassy has neither changed its security posture nor recommended U.S. citizens take special precautions, he said. Still, the United States and South Korea have raised their defense postures, as has Japan, which deployed PAC-3 missile interceptors in key locations around Tokyo on Tuesday as a precaution against possible North Korean ballistic missile tests.


Budget • CONTINUED FROM 1 like it, will drive the entire grass roots movement out of our party and lead to a creation of a new third party,” Tom Zawistowski wrote in a Monday letter to House Republicans. Zawistowski, a businessman and tea party leader from Portage County, is running for chairman of the Ohio Republican Party. Kasich in February proposed going forward with expansion, contending that Medicaid expansion was the way for the state to recapture Ohio taxpayers’ federal money to provide medical care for those who were most vulnerable. Roughly 366,000 Ohio

residents would be eligible for health coverage under the expansion beginning in 2014. And the state would see $13 billion from the federal government over the next seven years to cover those newly eligible for Medicaid. Advocates for Medicaid expansion were gearing up to defend the proposal at a rally Thursday at the Statehouse, while a teaparty linked group urged its supporters to continue stand against the expansion. “Until the budget is passed containing no Obamacare expansion - our job is not done,” Chris Littleton, president of Ohio Rising, wrote in an email on Tuesday.

Officers named for Troy CSC Staff Report Craig Wise was elected chairman and Barbara Taylor was elected vice chairman of the Troy Civil Service Commission during the April 9 meeting. The board also welcomed Larry Wolke as civil service commissioner, filling the unexpired term of Robert Counts.

TROY During the meeting, the board approved position descriptions for the fire department, zoning inspector and superintendent of parks. The changes to the descriptions are relatively minor, said commission secretary Mary Lynne Mouser.

• CONTINUED FROM 1 evaluation committee and was well-received. Troy City Schools Superintendent Eric Herman also said there “was a lot going on in the state” in terms of Race to the Top grant fulfillments. Herman said each and every school subject has been completely revised including electives such as physical education and other courses. Herman said many schools were finding the restrictions, the paperwork and time constraints too much and were dropping out of the grant. Herman said with schools dropping out of the “Race to the Top” grant process, Troy City Schools could end up receiving more money from the grant. Herman said public education has undergone more changes in one year than he’s ever witnessed at one time. Ohio was one of 10 states which were awarded $400 million in the “Race to the Top” federal school reform grant competition in 2010. The last projected amount of money the district was reported to receive as $259,000 over the span of four years. Troy City Schools’ board of education President Doug Trostle said the changes from the state in education are “very frustrating.” Trostle said information about the state expectations from public education seems to get “later and later” in

processes such as Race to the Top and other education initiatives. “It’s become overwhelming,” Trostle said. Trostle said he appreciated the work from the administration and staff “from day one” and how committees have been formed and worked through the challenges in areas such as teacher evaluations. “The students will benefit in the long run,” Trostle said. Herman said he feels that the district is staying calm and staying the course during the changes. “We took our time and are doing exactly what we needed,” Herman said. Trostle said he believed the focus of the district has “helped bring our district together.” In other news: Troy City Schools’ treasurer Craig Jones received recognition for the district’s “Excellent in Financial Reporting” from the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO). The organization awards a Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting to school districts that publish Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports which substantially conform to the principles and standards of financial reporting as recommended and adopted by the Association of School Business Officials.

panel of certified public accountants and practicing school business officials. Jones reported the district is more than $200,000 above projections in revenue, although expenditures were also slightly above projections mostly due to benefits. Jones said the district is 75 percent of the way through its fiscal year. Jones said he’ll continue to monitor the district’s expenditures. The board also passed a resolution to publicly express its opposition to the recent proposed expansion of the state voucher system. Governor John Kasich proposed to expand the program to all students enrolled in public schools which fail to meet the Third Grade Reading Guarantee for two consecutive years. It was recommended and approved to oppose the voucher program to which would transfer public dollars to support private education. It was unanimously approved by all present board members. Herman reported student fees will remain the same except for specific high school art classes. The board also approved to increase student lunch prices for the 2013-2014 school year. The Type A lunch will be increased to $2.35 for elementary students, $2.60 for secondary students and $2.95 (plus beverage) for adults beginning next fall. Stout said the district still loses money through the lunch program due to the lack of reimbursement from the United States Department of Agriculture. Stout said much of the increase is due to more restrictions such as whole grains, and more fresh fruit and vegetables offerings. The board adjourned the meeting for executive session to discuss personnel. Board member Joyce Reives was not present during Monday’s meeting. For more information about Troy City Schools, visit

Question: Do you think the United States needs stricter gun control measures?

Watch for final poll results in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News. Watch for a new poll question

in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News.


“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 Chicago Sun-Times on universal background checks needed for gun control: Don’t look now, but the U.S. Senate might actually pass legislation that has a chance to significantly reduce gun violence. Some advocates of stronger gun laws were discouraged recently when the Senate dropped provisions to ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines from legislation that will be considered starting next week. But what remains — a bill that would expand background checks when guns are purchased and stiffen penalties for straw purchases — is perhaps the single measure that could do most to tamp down the shootings in America’s neighborhoods. Mass shootings with assault weapons are awful when they occur, but over the course of a year, as we in Chicago know too well, far more Americans are killed by handguns. We need universal background checks, because we need to stop making it easy for criminals to buy guns. Virtually all firearms start out as legal, but gaps in our laws allow guns to flow from legal to illegal hands. Under the “gun show loophole,” no record keeping is required in private gun sales, which now account for two out of every five firearms transactions. A “straw purchaser,” someone with valid credentials who buys guns for those who can’t legally purchase them, can easily operate in the nether region where no records exist. That’s a huge loophole, and truckloads of guns are driven right through it. The NRA opposes universal background checks. It helped push through a measure that prohibits the FBI from hanging on for longer than 24 hours to records of those who pass the existing background check system. That makes it hard to spot a pattern of straw purchases. Lawmakers should not be swayed by the NRA on this issue. Waiting for the U.S. Senate to act, though, is not enough. We need to act on the state level, too. Even if the U.S. Senate bill does pass, its prospects are uncertain in the U.S. House. Illinois, which already has closed the gun show loophole, would be wise to enact its own requirement for background checks for all other private transactions. Prompted by a December ruling by a federal appeals court that invalidated Illinois’ ban on the concealed carrying of weapons, both houses of the Illinois Legislature are debating gun bills. The legislation that emerges should include a universal background check and a requirement that gun owners report lost or stolen weapons, which would help close another loophole. The Oklahoman on Postal Service plan: In the range of treatment plans to stanch the hemorrhaging at the U.S. Postal Service, surely the curtailment of Saturday delivery is the least painful. But as with any proposal to change the way the USPS does business, supporters of six-day-a-week mail service are rallying to preserve the status quo. What to do about a $16 billion deficit at USPS? The protesters don’t care. It’s not their problem. Every time the Postal Service proposes something other than rate increases to reduce losses, members of Congress and special-interest groups come out of the envelope and put a stop to it. A more damaging “fix” for deficits is to close underused post offices in small towns and even in parts of big cities. Just as school consolidation raises fears of a loss of community identity, closure of a post office is seen as the final nail in the coffin of a town in decline. We sympathize with the people remaining in those places. We have less sympathy for those who think ending Saturday mail delivery (saving the USPS $2 billion a year) represents a blow to humanity. Other than retail outlets, most businesses run on a Monday-Friday schedule. Always have. The Postal Service keeps its 20th-century mail delivery schedule in an era when “snail mail” is in serious decline. Postal workers are naturally concerned about job losses — as many as 22,500 carrier jobs could go. What about the job losses in the private sector because of changing market conditions? Congress doesn’t ride to the rescue of those. Thousands of people were once employed to deliver telegrams. Not anymore. Given the resistance in Congress to doing something fiscally responsible, Saturday first-class mail delivery will likely continue beyond its scheduled expiration in August. Sooner or later, though, six-day mail service will go the way of the telegram.


Thank you for your support To the Editor: Thank you for the recent story about the Altrusa Corporate Spelling Bee. We are fortunate that we have several sponsors each year who financially support this event. This year we had 10 spelling teams who were sponsored by Edison Community College, United Technologies Aerospace Systems, Troy Ford, Sound Financial, Unity Bank,

UVMC, Spring Mead Retirement, Kerber Sheet Metal, Conseal Concrete Sealants, Union Savings Bank and US Bank. Our silent auction was also generously supported by many who attended the spelling bee. The Altrusa of Troy is a non-profit service organization whose main focus is promoting literacy. Happily, all profit from this annual event goes toward grants for literacy projects throughout Miami County. The grant application is available on our website under the

Spelling Bee link. We have helped teachers with classroom programs, child care organizations, Books for Babies programs, adults learning English and various other organizations needing books and other literature to promote reading. We look forward to next year, March 20, when we will have the 20th anniversary of the Corporate Spelling Bee. Thank you.


This newspaper lady has a magazine problem Anyone who’s ever lived with me or merely seen the inside of my car knows I have a bit of a magazine problem. I tend to have a stack sitting at home and at least one in my purse, because you never know when you might get bored and need to soak up some fashion tips, celebrity gossip or life-changing essays. Any day can be made instantly better when something glossy and colorful arrives via snail mail. I’d like to think I have an excuse for my obsession. I was a magazine major, after all, and did intern at one back in the day. But really I’ve been a huge fan ever since I got American Girl when I was maybe 8 or so. All I remember is this comicesque feature called Amelia’s Notebook, which basically chronicled the adventures of a fledgling young girl. Next came Girls’ Life in the preteen years, where I learned all about applying glittery makeup and attracting my crush’s attention. Around age 15, I started

Natalie Knoth Troy Daily News Columnist subscribing to Seventeen, which I thought was way cool and mature of me, considering, ya know, I was two years younger than the title. I was a Teen Vogue fanatic as well, devouring all the fashion I could never afford even if I saved up my babysitting money for a year. Nowadays I’ll read just about anything and everything (except sports, men’s or blatantly tech magazines.) I’d probably count Glamour, Real Simple and O, The Oprah Magazine as my favorites, though there are many others too. I’ll be the first to admit that women’s magazines tend to contain conflicting advice and

focus a lot on appearance. True story. But editors are only printing what’s in demand. Stories are meant to engage and entertain readers, but often they inform readers, too — even if the content isn’t exactly high-brow. So…what did I learn this month? • My body type is basically not recognized by any major magazine in those “Find your perfect little black dress/pair of pants/spring trench coat” etc. etc. sections. Grrrr. Whose is, really? • You can substitute an avocado for a stick of butter in cookies. (Find the recipe online by searching for avocado chocolate chip cookies on the Redbook website). • Tasseled loafers are in style! • When trying on jeans, do leg lunges to make sure they feel comfy. (As if the whole dressing-room experience weren’t awkward enough.) • Aviator sunglasses were originally designed in 1936 to protect the eyes of World War II pilots when they looked

down at fighter planes’ instrument panels, according to People StyleWatch. • You can now buy a watch that has a friendship bracelet connected to it. Genius! • Plain croutons are out of style. Seriously. Foods go out of fashion, too. • I’m pretty sure Oprah had some sort of “aha!” moment this month, but unfortunately I can’t find that magazine to confirm. Sad. • According to my horoscope in Harper’s Bazaar, I’ll need to be sympathetic this month to someone having a hard time. My motto of the month? “Kind words don’t wear out the tongue.” Amen. Well, I’m sure I could gather even more scintillating facts, but that’s all I’ve got for now. My coworkers, be prepared for a stack of magazines on the freebie table. On to the next bunch!

the prison since the private takeover and the ACLU blamed overcrowding. The state prison became the first in the nation to be sold to a private company in a $72.7 million deal announced in 2011 by the administration of Gov. John Kasich in a budgetbalancing move. A separate unit of the prison for troublesome inmates is at 130 percent of capacity, with some cells holding three inmates and some sleeping on the floor, according to the ACLU. The ACLU report said a February audit of the prison by the Correctional Institution Inspection Committee found inmate assaults on other prisoners rose 180 percent and inmate attacks on staff members jumped 300 percent from 2010-2012. The ACLU sent a timeline to state lawmakers on the first 18 months of private operation of the prison and called for safety improvements. “This facility has become unsafe for inmates, employees and the surrounding community,” said Mike Brickner, director of communications and public policy for the ACLU of Ohio. CCA didn’t comment immediately on the ACLU report.

Margaret Thatcher dead at 87 LONDON (AP) — Love her or loathe her, one thing’s beyond dispute: Margaret Thatcher transformed Britain. The Iron Lady, who ruled for 11 remarkable years, imposed her will on a fractious, rundown nation breaking the unions, triumphing in a far-off war, and selling off state industries at a record pace. She left behind a leaner government and more prosperous nation by the time a political mutiny ousted her from No. 10 Downing Street. Thatcher’s spokesman, Tim Bell, said the former prime minister died from a stroke Monday morning at the Ritz hotel in London. As flags were flown at half-staff at Buckingham Palace, Parliament and Downing Street for the 87-yearold, praise for Thatcher and her leadership poured in from around the world. “Margaret Thatcher undoubtedly was one of the most remarkable political figures of the modern world,” said Russian President Vladimir Putin. Putin said Thatcher “made a significant contribution to the development of the Soviet-British and Russian-British ties, which we will always remember with gratitude.” President Barack Obama said many Americans “will never forget her standing shoulder to shoulder with President (Ronald) Reagan, reminding the world that we are not simply carried along by the currents of history. We can shape them with moral conviction, unyielding courage and iron will.” Queen Elizabeth II authorized a ceremonial funeral a step short of a state funeral to be held for Thatcher at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London next week with military honors. Prime Minister David Cameron cut short a trip to Madrid and Paris to return to Britain following news of Thatcher’s death, and said Parliament would be recalled from recess on Wednesday so lawmakers could pay tribute. For admirers, Thatcher was a

savior who rescued Britain from ruin and laid the groundwork for an extraordinary economic renaissance. For critics, she was a heartless tyrant who ushered in an era of greed that kicked the weak out onto the streets and let the rich become filthy rich. “Let us not kid ourselves. She was a very divisive figure,” said Bernard Ingham, Thatcher’s press secretary for her entire term. “She was a real toughie. She was a patriot with a great love for this country, and she raised the standing of Britain abroad.” Thatcher was the first and still only female prime minister in Britain’s history. But she often found feminists tiresome. Her boxy, black handbag became such a recognizable part of her image that her way of dressing down ministers and opponents became known as “handbagging.” A grocer’s daughter, she rose to the top of Britain’s snobbish hierarchy the hard way, and envisioned a classless society that rewarded hard work and determination. She was a trailblazer who at first believed trailblazing impossible: Thatcher told the Liverpool Daily Post in 1974 that she did not think a woman would serve as party leader or prime minister during her lifetime. But once in power, she never showed an ounce of doubt. Thatcher could be intimidating to those working for her. British diplomats sighed with relief on her first official visit to Washington, D.C., as prime minister to find that she was relaxed enough to enjoy a glass of whiskey and a half-glass of wine during an embassy lunch, according to official documents. Like her close friend and political ally Ronald Reagan, Thatcher seemed motivated by an unshakable belief that free markets would build a better country than reliance on a strong, central government. Another thing she shared with the American president: a tendency

to reduce problems to their basics, choose a path, and follow it to the end, no matter what the opposition. She formed a deep attachment to the man she called “Ronnie” some spoke of it as a schoolgirl crush. Still, she would not back down when she disagreed with him on important matters, even though the United States was the richer and vastly stronger partner in the socalled “special relationship.” Thatcher was at her brashest when Britain was challenged.When Argentina’s military junta seized the remote Falklands Islands from Britain in 1982, she did not hesitate, even though her senior military advisers said it might not be feasible to reclaim the islands. She simply would not allow Britain to be pushed around, particularly by military dictators, said Ingham, who recalls the Falklands War as the tensest period of Thatcher’s three terms in power. When diplomacy failed, she dispatched a military task force that accomplished her goal, despite the naysayers. “That required enormous leader-

ship,” Ingham said. “This was a formidable undertaking, this was a risk with a capital R-I-S-K, and she demonstrated her leadership by saying she would give the military their marching orders and let them get on with it.” In deciding on war, Thatcher overruled Foreign Office specialists who warned her about the dangers of striking back. She was infuriated by warnings about the dangers to British citizens in Argentina and the difficulty of getting support from the U.N. Security Council. “When you are at war you cannot allow the difficulties to dominate your thinking: you have to set out with an iron will to overcome them,” she said in her memoir, “Downing Street Years.” “And anyway what was the alternative? That a common or garden dictator should rule over the queen’s subjects and prevail by fraud and violence? Not while I was prime minister.” Thatcher’s determination to reclaim the islands brought her into conflict with Reagan, who dispatched Secretary of State

Alexander Haig on a shuttle mission to London and Buenos Aires to seek a peaceful solution, even as British warships approached the Falklands. A private diary kept by U.S. diplomat Jim Rentschler captures Thatcher at this crisis point. “And here’s Maggie, appearing in a flower-decorated salon adjoining the small dining room (…) sipping orange juice and sherry,” Rentschler wrote. “La Thatcher is really quite fetching in a dark velvet two-piece ensemble with grosgrain piping and a soft hairdo that heightens her blond English coloring.” But the niceties faded over the dinner table. “High color is in her cheeks, a note of rising indignation in her voice, she leans across the polished table and flatly rejects what she calls the ‘woolliness’ of our secondstage formulation,” Rentschler writes. Needless to say, Haig’s peace mission soon collapsed. The relatively quick triumph of British forces revived Thatcher’s political fortunes, which had been faltering along with the British economy. She won an overwhelming victory in 1983, tripling her majority in the House of Commons. She trusted her gut instinct, famously concluding early on that Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev represented a clear break in the Soviet tradition of autocratic rulers. She pronounced that the West could “do business” with him, a position that influenced Reagan’s vital dealings with Gorbachev in the twilight of the Soviet era. It was heady stuff for a woman who had little training in foreign affairs when she triumphed over a weak field of indecisive Conservative Party candidates to take over the party leadership in 1975 and ultimately run as the party’s candidate for prime minister.

Girl next door Annette Funicello dies at age 70 NEW YORK (AP) — She was the first crush for a generation of boys, the perfect playmate for a generation of girls. Annette Funicello, who became a child star as a cute-as-a-button Mouseketeer on “The Mickey Mouse Club” in the 1950s, ruled among baby boomers, who tuned in every weekday afternoon to watch her on their flickering black-andwhite television sets. Then they shed their

mouse ears, as Annette did when she teamed with Frankie Avalon during the ’60s in a string of frothy, fun-in-the-sun movies with titles like “Beach Blanket Bingo” and “How to Stuff a Wild Bikini.” Decades later, she endeared herself to baby boomers all over again after she announced in 1992 that she had multiple sclerosis and began grappling with the slow, degenerative effects with remarkably

good cheer and faith. Funicello died on Monday at Mercy Southwest Hospital in Bakersfield, Calif., of complications from MS, the Walt Disney Co. said. She was 70. “She really had a tough existence,” Avalon told The Associated Press. “It’s like losing a family member. I’m devastated but I’m not surprised.” Avalon said that when they were working together, she never realized how

beloved she was. “She would say, ‘Really?’ She was so bashful about it. She was an amazing girl,” he recalled. The pretty, dark-haired Funicello was 13 when she gained fame on “The Mickey Mouse Club,” a kids’ variety show that consisted of stories, songs and dance routines. It ran on ABC from 1955 to 1959. Cast after Walt Disney saw her at a dance recital, she appeared in the Mouseketeer uniform of

Ohio’s Fort Fizzle In 1863, quiet, bucolic Holmes County was the site of a nationally reported protest against the United States government. The fight was over the Conscription Act, which ordered that men be drafted in states that did not meet their troop quotas during the Civil War. The Copperheads, Northerners who favored an immediate peace settlement with the Confederacy, were very active in Holmes County. They encouraged neighbors to resist the draft or desert once they were forced into the Union Army. On June 5, a government official sent to enforce the Conscription Act was driven from Holmes County when protesters threw a rock at him. Soon after, a provost marshal and his men captured the four Copperheads accused of attacking the official. On their way to Wooster with their prisoners, the marshal and his men were stopped by eight to 10 Copperheads who demanded the four locals’ release. The government band was forced to surrender them. The skirmish caused a sensation. Hundreds of Copperheads gathered in nearby Napoleon (now called Glenmont) to protest and to try to stop any further enforcement of the Conscription Act. News of their protest reached army officers in Columbus, who ordered more than 400 soldiers to march toward Holmes County. That report scared the Copperheads. Most of them quickly fled, but a few decided to make their stand against the Army forces at a local farmhouse. They named the house Fort Vallandigham, after Copperhead leader and Dayton Congressman Clement L. Vallandigham. In its cellar, the “fort” had a spring and a tunnel that led to an orchard. An old stone fence and large rocks surrounded it. Guns and four cannons fortified it. The Army troops arrived; shots were fired. It was a brief skirmish. Some observes said it lasted one minute, others said no more than five. In the end, the resisters jumped out of the fort’s windows and ran out the doors and disappeared into the woods. Area reports of the battle quickly called the farmhouse by a new name—Fort Fizzle.

Try to not be so reliant on Dennis Dear Annie: I have been married to "Dennis" for eight years. Early on, Dennis couldn't do enough for me. Now, if my car won't start, he yells at me and says to call a tow truck. If I ask him to spend time with me, he always has other things to do. On the rare occasion when we attend a social event together, he abandons me so he can "work the room" and have a great time with everyone else. We arrive together and leave together, and the rest of the time, I sit alone, miserable and forgotten. Dennis will go above and beyond for others. It doesn't matter if it's the middle of the night, raining, snowing, spending money we don't have, missing meals, birthdays, holidays and our daughter's school programs. If it's a chance to make himself look good, he's there with a smile and compassion. I get the repairman to take care of me with a handshake and a bill. But when I ask Dennis to treat his family with the same enthusiasm, he calls me a selfish nag. Yes, I resent all the people he helps, because they get the side of my husband that belongs to me. I'm told to take care of myself because he's too busy helping others and inflating his ego. I get whatever is leftover. I love Dennis, but I'm starting to feel that he only gave me his adoration and helpfulness because he was trying to win my heart. How do I deal with this? — Wife of the Plumber with Leaky Pipes at Home Dear Wife: Some people put on a good show for others, but at home, they let down the facade. We recommend counseling, preferably with Dennis, but without him if necessary. We also suggest you stop relying on your husband to provide your social life. Instead of sitting "miserable and forgotten," develop your conversational skills. Get involved in some local activities that interest you so you are less dependent on Dennis's availability. You need to take better care of yourself. Dear Annie: I am a retired schoolteacher and would like to request that you stop recommending that high school students see their guidance counselors for any problems other than recommended course requirements for graduation. While it may be widely thought that they are there for guidance on many personal issues, most of them, in my experience, are the last person I would recommend a student speak to about family or emotional issues. This may sound harsh, but they are not compassionate and caring individuals. Perhaps they are in elementary and middle schools, but not in high schools. Their time is taken up with increasing state requirements for graduation and dealing with failing students who need course recovery classes. Their general attitude is that they have no time for anything else. — Retired Teacher Dear Teacher: We know that high school guidance counselors are primarily there to help students navigate their future academic lives. But we are certain most would take issue with your comment that they are not compassionate and caring. Perhaps that was the case in your school, but there are many students whose lives have been changed by kind and concerned guidance counselors who understand that a student's personal life can interfere with his or her academic success. Dear Annie: Please tell "Still Healing" that it is imperative she inform her stepbrother's wife about the painful sexual abuse she suffered at his hands. My granddaughters have been through hell because their father sexually abused them. It might have been averted if his half-sister had reported the earlier sexual abuse and rape. When she learned what he had done to his daughters, she finally came forward, but it was too late. Thankfully, he is in prison now, and the girls are getting counseling, but they will suffer for many years. — Sad Grandmother Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

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


Why is my cucumber waxed? Is it safe to eat? Dear Heloise: I love cucumbers, but have always wondered what the waxy coating is that is put on them, and why is it there? — Doug G., via email Doug, I love cucumbers, too, and probably eat two to three a week! According to the Food and Drug Administration, many vegetables grow their own natural waxlike coating. However, this comes off after harvesting and cleaning. A wax coating is applied (which meets FDA food-additive regulations) to help retain moisture during transportation. The wax used is the smallest amount possible; only a drop or two on each piece of produce, so it’s not much at all. The wax keeps mold from growing, prevents shrinkage, minimizes

Hints from Heloise Columnist bruising and enhances the overall appearance. The wax doesn’t wash off with water and normal scrubbing. If you prefer not to eat the wax, just peel the skin before eating, but know that it is safe to eat and not harmful. Plus, that’s where most of the nutrients are. If the skin is a little tough, score it with a fork, and it will be healthy to eat and

easy to chew. — Heloise FRESH AVOCADO Dear Heloise: I enjoy eating avocados with salads, sandwiches, etc., but my husband does not eat them. I can’t eat an entire avocado by myself, so I kept trying different ways to keep one fresh after cutting a section away from the seed. My husband came up with a great hint: Do not peel the uncut portion of avocado that you are trying to save. Fill a small spray bottle with lime juice. After you slice a portion of the avocado, spray the cut area with the lime juice and store in a small dish with a lid for future use. The avocado will keep fresh for days, without turning the dark-brown yucky color, and the taste isn’t

changed by the lime juice. — Linda in Tyler, Texas BUTTER STORAGE Dear Heloise: I like soft butter when making toast. Is it safe to keep butter out on the counter, or must it be refrigerated? — Nancy P. in New Jersey Well, Nancy, you can keep butter at room temperature for a short period of time, but long term, be sure to refrigerate. Especially when on sale, buy some extra butter and store it in the freezer, but be sure to first wrap it in foil or freezer-safe bags. In the refrigerator, be sure to keep the butter tightly wrapped or in a covered dish to prevent it from collecting odors from other foods. — Heloise



Wednesday, April 10, 2013













BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, April 11, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Today your focus is on money and cash flow. At some point, you might feel discouraged and flat broke. Don’t worry; this feeling is fleeting. (Whew!) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Moon is in your sign today, making you a bit more emotional than usual. Don’t take this criticism seriously, especially from older people. (It could be sour grapes.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Don’t listen to feelings of inadequacy that you might experience today. We all feel this way from time to time. It’s part of life, even though it doesn’t help anything. “Begone!” CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Someone older might rain on your parade today. Well, it’s always easy for older and more experienced people to be critical, isn’t it? Just ignore this. (Sheesh!) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You might be discouraged in discussions with authority figures today because they aren’t receptive to your suggestions. “Talk to the hand!” (It was ever thus.) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Travel plans or something that has to do with publishing, the media and higher education might disappoint you today. People who think they know better might create obstacles. (Grrr.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might not be happy with how things are shared today. Or you might feel overly burdened by debt. Fortunately, this discouraging feeling is very brief. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Be prepared to compromise with others today, even though you might not feel like doing so. Don’t take it personally if relations with friends and partners are critical or stiff. This will last only a few hours. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Someone might be critical of your work today, which is always a bummer. Don’t respond. Just let it go, because this is brief. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Children might feel like an extra burden today. (It goes with the territory.) Just do what is expected of you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Relations with authority figures in the family might be discouraging today. Someone could be critical of you. Don’t take this personally; this feeling will be so brief that it’s not worth making a big deal. Phfft! PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) It’s easy to fall into negative thinking or worry mode today. Fortunately, this is a brief dark cloud on your horizon. Gone in a few hours. Just let it pass. YOU BORN TODAY You can be happy leading or following, as long as you feel you are useful. You are genuinely interested in what others have to say, which is why you are diplomatic. Many of you can mediate difficulties between others. You’re a nurturer with strong family values. You give support when needed. In the year ahead, a major choice will arise. Choose wisely. Birthdate of: Jennifer Heil, skier; Marguerite de Navarre, author/reformist; Peter Riegert, actor.

Student arrested in Texas college stabbing attack

Where Excellence is a Tradition. 2380148


Lone Star College-CyFair student Michael Chalfan answers questions about what happened following a stabbing attack by a student that wounded at least 14 people — many in the face and neck — before being subdued and arrested, authorities and witnesses said Tuesday in Cypress, Texas. not immediately clear what type of weapon was used, but there were indications when calls came in to the department that “students or faculty were actively responding to work to subdue this individual.” “So we’re proud of those folks, but we’re glad no one else is injured any more severely than they are,” Garcia said.

Michelle Alvarez told the Houston Chronicle she saw the attacker running toward other students and tried to back away. She said she didn’t even feel it as he swiped at her. “He came running and swinging at my neck, as I tried to get out of the way,” she said. Student Michael Chalfan said he was walking to class

with a large group of people,” the 21-year-old said, later adding, “The police got to the scene very quickly.” One student said she learned one of her classmates was stabbed after leaving the school’s Health Science Center building. “I called to check on another classmate who was still inside the building and she said the classroom was on lockdown and she said one of the classmates had been stabbed,” said Margo Shimfarr-Evans told KHOU-TV. “It happened in the hallway.” Courtland Sedlachek, 18, was in class when his phone started buzzing along with the phones of everyone else in class. The room was temporarily locked down, but students were let out and off campus a short time later, in what Sedlachek described as an orderly evacuation. The attack came three months after a different Lone Star campus was the site of a shooting in which two people were hurt. The suspected gunman in that incident is charged with aggravated assault.

when he saw a group of police officers also running after the suspect. He said one officer used a stun gun to help subdue the man. Lone Star officials initially urged people on cam-

pus, about 25 miles northwest of downtown Houston, to take shelter and be on alert for a second suspect. But the sheriff ’s department said authorities believe just one person was responsible. “It was the same suspect going from building to building,” department spokesman Thomas Gilliland said. Garcia said buildings still were being searched hours later, and authorities would not provide more details about the suspect including his name. Long lines of vehicles carrying students and staff streamed off campus as law enforcement directed traffic away from the school. Teaundrae Perryman said he was in class when he received a text message from a friend and went outside to see a young woman being loaded into an ambulance with what appeared to be stab wounds to either her neck or head. He said he didn’t receive an email alert from the college until 11:56 a.m. “I was concerned but I wasn’t afraid because I was


CYPRESS, Texas (AP) — A student went on a building-to-building stabbing attack at a Texas community college Tuesday, wounding at least 14 people many in the face and neck before being subdued and arrested, authorities and witnesses said. The attack about 11:20 a.m. on the Lone Star Community College System’s campus in Cypress sent at least 12 people to hospitals, while several others refused treatment at the scene, according to Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department spokesman Robert Rasa. Two people remained in critical condition Tuesday evening at Memorial Hermann Texas Trauma Institute, spokeswoman Alex Rodriguez said. Diante Cotton, 20, said he was sitting in a cafeteria with some friends when a girl clutching her neck walked in, yelling, “He’s stabbing people! He’s stabbing people!” Cotton said he could not see the girl’s injuries, but when he and his friends went outside, they saw a half-dozen people with injuries to their faces and necks being loaded into ambulances and medical helicopters. Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia said it was

9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.

In our hearts your memory lingers, sweetly tender, fond and true. There is not a day, dear Mother/Father, that we do not think of you. Thank you for loving and sharing, for giving and for caring. God bless you and keep you, until we meet again. Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure. You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure. Those we love we never lose, for always they will be, loved remembered, treasured, always in our memory. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. My heart still aches in sadness, my silent tears still flow. For what it meant to lose you, no one will ever know. Memory is a lovely lane, where hearts are ever true. A lane I so often travel down, because it leads to you. Oh how we wish he/she was here today, to see all the blessings we have. Yet somehow you know that he/she is guiding us on our paths. Tenderly we treasure the past with memories that will always last. Remembering you on this day, comforted by so many memories. In the hearts of those who loved you, you will always be there. If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. . Loved always, sadly missed. Forever remembered, forever missed. Suffer little children to come unto me.

Vikings beat Indians to open CCC play

MONDAY’S RESULTS • Baseball Troy 3, Piqua 2 TROY — On Monday night, it was a pitcher’s duel on the Market Street Field when Troy and Piqua opened GWOC North play. And in the end, one swing of Dylan Cascaden’s bat proved to be the difference in Troy’s 3-2 victory. With Troy’s Ben Langdon and Piqua’s Colin Lavey both throwing four-hitters, there was little in the way of scoring opportunities, but Piqua broke the ice in the top of third by taking a 2-0 lead. With two outs and and two on in the bottom of the fifth, Cascaden sent a 3-1 pitch over the left-field fence for what would be the winning runs. Langdon had eight strikeouts, a walk and hit a batter, while the Piqua pitchers combined to strikeout five and walk four. Milton-Union 11, Preble Shawnee 8 WEST MILTON — Sam Morgan was 4 for 4 with a double, Alex Gunston was 3 for 4 with a triple and the Milton-Union Bulldogs (2-6, 1-0) scored 10 runs over the fifth and sixth innings to rally for an 11-8 victory over Preble Shawnee Monday night to kick off Southwestern Buckeye League Buckeye Division play. Zac Greenwald and Brian Beller both tripled and Jesse Simpson doubled in the game, while Beeler got credit for the victory. Troy Christian 7, Xenia Christian 6 TROY — Troy Christian defeated Xenia Christian 7-6 in Metro Buckeye Conference play Monday night. Nathan Kirkpatrick was 2 for 4 with a double and Spencer Thomas went 2 for 2 and grazed the basepaths for seven steals. Bradford 10, Newton 7 PLEASANT HILL — Bradford scored six in the top of the first and

BY COLIN FOSTER Associate Sports Editor Miami East’s Paige Kiesewetter pitched a gem, her defense backed her up and the offense rolled. It was a total team effort for the Vikings as they opened up Cross Country Conference play with a convincing 9-0 victory over Newton Tuesday in

PLEASANT HILL Pleasant Hill. Kiesewetter had three straight one-two-three innings to open the game and took a no-hitter into the fourth before Newton’s Madison Mollette broke it up with a base hit to start the inning. The Indians had runners on second and third in the fourth, but Kiesewetter struck out Kasey Thompson and

forced a popup to keep Newton off the board. That was just the way the day went for the Indians. Two rare Miami East errors helped Newton load the bases in the fifth with one out, but Kiesewetter and the Miami East defense once again held their ground and got out of the inning unscathed. Only two Newton players grazed the basepaths following that.

Troy’s Zach Kendall went the distance for the win during a game against Piqua Tuesday at Hardman Field in Piqua.

Sealing the deal Troy beats GWOC rival Piqua, 5-2 BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor Troy missed its chances to put away the game early. Piqua saw a few opportunities to get back into it slip past. In the end, it took the Indians fighting back to get the Trojans going. Piqua rallied from an early 2-0 deficit — which could have been much worse — to tie the score in the bottom of the fifth inning, only for the Trojans to retake the lead in the top of the sixth and tack on two insurance runs in the seventh to seal a 5-2 victory over the rival Indians Tuesday at

PIQUA Hardman Field as the defending Greater Western Ohio Conference North champs began division play with a pair of hard-fought victories. Troy (6-3, 2-0) got backto-back doubles by Dylan Cascaden and Nick Sanders to start the game and take a one-run lead, and a Collin Moeller solo blast leading off the second made it 2-0. But the Trojans also had runners on second and third with one out in the first and failed to cash in, and a botched double steal with runners on first and third and two out in the second

Trojans fall to Indians, 9-5 BY ROB KISER Civitas Media One step out of the car Tuesday at the Piqua High School softball field, located behind the junior, let you know this was going to be a very different game than Monday’s nineinning marathon won by Piqua 2-0. With the wind blowing out at more than 20 miles per hour, there were going to be plenty of scoring opportunities — know matter how well Troy ace Amber

PIQUA Smith and Piqua ace Haley Dotson threw. And in the end it was another game where Troy had its opportunities, but just couldn’t quite finish in a 9-5 Piqua win. The Trojans left 10 runners on, including six in the final three at bats. “We had our chances,” Troy coach Megan Campbell said. “Piqua’s pitcher (Haley Dotson) is a great pitcher. She got some big outs, but we definitely came out and hit the ball today.”

Woods the focus at upcoming Masters BY JOEL WALKER For the Troy Daily News


AUGUSTA — Okay, he’s proven he’s back. Now can he really prove it by winning the Masters, which begins Thursday? The pre-tournament buzz is all about Tiger Woods, his three victories already this year and

his continued pursuit of Jack Nicklaus’ 18 major professional victories. Woods has 14. “If he breaks par in the first round he’ll win for sure,” said one veteran golf writer. But he doesn’t necessarily have to break par Thursday.

While the tournament may be the most prestigious of the four majors (add the British Open, the U.S. Open and the PGA to the list) the limited field here (90-plus) gives the edge to the quality players like Woods. Okay, so Bubba Watson is the defender. It happens. While Woods has been stuck on 14 majors since winning the

2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, the record-holder himself thinks Woods will surpass 18. “I still think he will break my record,” Nicklaus said before attending the traditional champions’ dinner Tuesday. Jack has won the Masters a record six times, Tiger four.

Softball ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 And Smith showed a lot of courage in difficult conditions. Piqua plated six runs in its first two at bats, including a wind-aided two-run homer by Kaity McCawley. But Smith allowed just one run in Piqua’s next three at bats, before the Indians scored three in the home sixth. “I think there are situations where you can

decide you are done, or you can just keep fighting and fighting and fighting,” Campbell said. “And that’s what Amber (Smith) did tonight. She just kept battling. And the defense played well behind her.” A RBI double by Megan Schreiber and a run-scoring single by Brittany Sowers closed Troy within 6-5 in the top of the third. After Piqua had taken a 7-5 lead, Troy loaded the bases in the fifth on con-

secutive singles by Schreiber, Sowers and Maggie McClurg — before Kaci Cotrell made a running catch near the fence in centerfield to end the rally. Alex Wilt had a one-out double in the sixth and Jamie Snay reached on an error, before Dotson got two outs to end the rally. In the seventh, Sowers drilled her third hit of the game and McClurg had her second, before

McCawley, who had a RBI double in Piqua’s sixth to make it 9-5, picked a girl off to end the game. “What can you say about Kaity McCawley,” Piqua coach Rick Claprood said. “She called the whole game. The pickoff play — we called that from the bench. That girls was getting too far off. When someone tells us they can’t be picked off, we are going to challenge them.” Smith struck out three

and did not walk a batter. Wilt had two doubles in the game for the Trojans and scored Troy’s first run on Allison Pierce’s first inning double. Schreiber doubled and joined Sowers with three hits. Dotson had six strikeouts, while helping herself with a RBI single in the sixth. Megan Anderson was 3for-4 with a triple, while Alex Cox was 2-for-4.

Kaci Cotrell had a single and two sacrifice bunts, while McCawley was 2-for-4 with a home run, double and three RBI. Janise Hummel also had two hits.

House of Cards

Patterson gets no-hitter in TC’s 12-0 thumping

Louisville outlasts Michigan for NCAA title ATLANTA (AP) — The championship national game began as a series of storybook moments for a kid from a small town in Indiana. It became a shooting gallery of sorts for a bearded swingman from the Appalachian foothills of Virginia. But Monday night in a Southern metropolis, a guard from the Pacific Northwest helped decide the victor of the final game of the final night of the season. And the University of Michigan men’s basketball team could only dwell on how a national title got away. Peyton Siva’s secondhalf efforts helped the Cardinals to an 82-76 win over Michigan and helped Louisville to its first national championship in men’s basketball since 1986. “It hurts a lot,” said Michigan point guard Trey Burke, who scored a gamehigh 24 points. “Just to get to the national championship game, just to play for the national championship, it hurts so much. A lot of people didn’t expect us to even get this far. A lot of people didn’t expect us to even get past the second round. “You know, we fought. We fought all the way up to this point.” Siva, a Seattle product, scored 14 of his 18 points in the second half to help the Cardinals rally from a 12point deficit with less than four minutes left in the first half. Michigan (31-8), playing in its first national title game since 1993 and for its first title since 1989, was unable to keep pace with Louisville in the second half, despite the fact that early on it was fueled by its transition game, a 17rebound effort in the first half and the play of its guards — notably Indiana native Spike Albrecht. With Burke called for his second foul less than nine minutes into the game, Albrecht took the pressure — and, seemingly, the spotlight — off the sophomore


Louisville basketball players react after defeating Michigan during the second half of the NCAA Tournament championship game Monday in Atlanta. point guard by hitting six of his first seven shots, and Albrecht seemed to captivate the 74,326 inside the Georgia Dome with a 4-for4 effort from the 3-point arc in the first half. “That was probably going back to my high school days,” Albrecht said of his hot hand. “Trey, with two fouls, Coach [John] Beilein doesn’t play guys with two fouls in the first half, so I knew I was in the rest of the half. I was just, fortunately, hitting shots. Teammates were finding me.” But while Siva provided the spark for a second half, Luke Hancock brought energy to the Cardinals (355) in the first half. Hancock, a swingman from Roanoke, Va., scored 22 points, including 16 in the first half, and picked up where Albrecht left off. His 4-for-4 performance in the final three minutes before halftime helped

Louisville slash a 10-point deficit to one — Hancock hit his fourth 3-pointer with exactly one minute left in the half to cut Michigan’s lead to 36-35. “I just tried to play off Russ [Smith] and Peyton,” Hancock said. “They’re so good at getting the open shots, and Gorgui [Dieng] found me for a couple of those but I just tried to play with them. They’re the guys who are usually scoring all the points. If I can step in and hit an open shot or just try to help out, I do, but Russ and Peyton lead the show and I just try to play off of them.” Still, the Wolverines took a 38-37 lead at the half on a pair of free throws by Glenn Robinson III. “We were still up,” Robinson, the Wolverines forward who scored 12 points, said of halftime. “I thought we did a good job of staying positive in the lock-

er room at halftime. We were just trying to keep everybody involved in the game and trying to tell everybody about defense and getting stops.” • Women’s UConn 93, Louisville 60 NEW ORLEANS — Geno Auriemma and Connecticut are back on top. With freshman Breanna Stewart leading the way, it might be a while before they relinquish that spot. Stewart scored 18 of her 23 points in a dazzling first half and Connecticut won its eighth national championship with a 93-60 rout of Louisville on Tuesday night. It was the most lopsided victory in a title game. The title tied Auriemma and the Huskies (35-4) with Pat Summitt and Tennessee for the most in women's basketball history.

Georgia summers are simply too hot to keep the course in the championship condition (the grass short enough and the greens fast enough) that the members demand. • Par 3 Today The popular par-3 contest is held on the adjacent par-3 course Wednesday afternoon and is open to all contestants, all past Masters champions and all past major champions. Palmer, Nicklaus and Gary Player played together last year and will likely do so again this year. None of the three are in the field although they will hit opening tee shots as honorary starters Thursday morning. No player has ever won the par-3 contest and the Masters the same year. • Winning Pays All former major champions are invited to the

tournament and may play practice rounds on the regular course, play in the par-3 tournament and enjoy the various social events during the week. All past Masters winners may play in the tournament. Several do, several don’t. Those not expected to compete this year are Palmer, Nicklaus, Player, Tommy Aaron, Jack Burke Jr., Charles Coody, Nick Faldo, Ray Floyd, Doug Ford, Bob Goalby and Fuzzy Zoeller. • Chairman of the Board Billy Payne, who was in charge of the Olympics in Atlanta, has been chairman of the club and the tournament since May of 2006. “Billy is doing a good job,” one of his fellowmembers said. “If he can run the Olympics, he can run a little, old golf tour-

nament.” • Presidential Suite There are 10 cabins located on the grounds near the putting green and the 10th tee and provide lodging for members and their guests. one is named the Eisenhower Cabin because the club built it for President Ike and Mrs. Eisenhower for their visits to the club. Eisenhower is the only U.S. president to have been a club member. • All About the Jacket The tradition of members wearing green jackets began in 1937 with the idea that Masters patrons (fans) could see and talk with members who would have accurate information. In 1949 the first green jacket was awarded to the tournament winner, Sam Snead.

■ Golf

Masters ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 “Tiger is just 37, it’s not that old,” Nicklaus said. “I won four after that. They were spread out. It wasn’t that difficult. I don’t think for Tiger to get four or five more—or six or seven—is that big of a stretch.” Ironically, Nicklaus became the oldest player to win a Masters at 46 years, 2 months and 23 days in 1986 and Tiger was the youngest to win the tournament at 21 years, 3 months and 14 days in 1997. • Invitation Only You can’t apply for membership at Augusta National, you can only be invited. Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and former amateur and now senior tour pro John Harris are the only pro golfers who are members. The club is open from mid-October to late May.

Staff Reports


MIDDLETOWN — Alec Patterson threw five innings of no-hit baseball and struck out 10 as Troy Christian improved to 3-0 overall, 2-0 in Metro Buckeye Conference play with a 12-0 run-rule of Middletown Christian Tuesday. Patterson struck out the first six out of seven batters he faced. He also went 2 for 4 at the plate with a double. “This is really the first start for him,” Troy Christian coach Bill Campbell said. “He’s come on in relief before. He was just on. He threw very well. He started a few games as a junior, but he really didn’t see too much time.” The Eagles opened up a big gap in the first two innings, scoring four in the first, followed by five more in the second. TC added three runs in the fifth for the run-rule. The Eagles return to play Thursday against Lehman. Tippecanoe 9, Stebbins 2 RIVERSIDE — Tippecanoe’s pitching was unstoppable as always. The Red Devils’ hitting is catching up. Carter Langdon was 3 for 5 with a double, a home run and three RBIs to back up Cole Quillen’s quality start and Tippecanoe (7-1, 3-0) finished a sweep of Stebbins with a 9-2 victory Tuesday in Central Buckeye Conference Kenton Trail Division play. Ben Hughes shut the Indians (3-5, 0-3) 7-0 on Monday. “Cole pitched a good game, and Austin pitched well in the seventh. Our pitching has kept us rolling,” Tippecanoe coach Bruce Cahill said. “We’ve had a couple of guys struggling at the plate but that had two hits today. Hopefully they get the offense rolling, too. I’m seeing signs of it starting.” Cameron Johnson was 2 for 3, Clack was 2 for 4 with two RBIs, Zack Blair was 2 for 3 with a triple and Hughes tripled in Tuesday’s win. Tippecanoe hosts Indian Lake today in a game that was originally scheduled for Thursday but moved up a day due to the threat of inclement weather. Miami East 12, Newton 1 PLEASANT HILL — Michael Fellers was a oneman wrecking crew Tuesday, and he singlehandedly demolished the Newton Indians, hitting two home runs — one a grand slam — and powering the Miami East Vikings to a 121 victory at Newton. Fellers was 4 for 4 with a double, a two-run homer, a grand slam and a whopping eight RBIs. “He it ‘em, and he hit ‘em solid,” Miami East coach Barry Coomes said. Brandon Kirk also went 3 for 4, Colton McKinney was 3 for 3 with two RBIs and Franco Villella was 2 for 3 — but maybe most importantly for the Vikings, they only committed one error behind starter Dylan Kinnison, who struck out one and pitched all five

innings. “We didn’t give up a lot of unearned runs today. That’s been a problem for us lately,” Coomes said. Miami East hosts TriVillage Thursday. Bethel 16, Ansonia 1 BRANDT — Bethel got solid offensive performances all around and Jordan Elam had control on the hill as the Bees hammered Cross Country Conference foe Ansonia 16-1 Tuesday. Elam recorded nine Ks and didn’t allow an earned run in four innings pitched. He also went 2 for 2 with a double and four RBIs. Matt Bush scored four runs, along with going 2 for 3 with a double and two RBIs, Jimmy Pelphrey was 2 for 4 with two RBIs and Zach Baughman added a double. The Bees (3-3, 1-0) host Covington on Friday. • Softball M-U 3, Eaton 1 WEST MILTON — It wasn’t the hitting display that Milton-Union coach Curt Schaefer was looking for, but his Bulldogs did their damage early in the game and held on for a 3-1 victory over Eaton Tuesday. Chloe Smith got the win on the mound and Cassie Hayworth led the Bulldog offense, going 2 for 3 with a double. Milton plays at Dixie today. Tippecanoe 14, Stebbins 4 RIVERSIDE — After blowing out Stebbins at home on Monday, Tippecanoe traveled to the Indians home Tuesday and started all over, winning 144 in six innings. Megan Rittenhouse got her first varsity win, striking out six and giving up two earned runs. Cassie Gingerich was 4 for 5 with two runs, Bri Eichbaum was 3 for 3 with a double and three runs, Stef Kraska doubled and drove in a run and Kristin Mace had two RBIs. Tippecanoe hosts Indian Lake today in a game moved up from Thursday’s original date due to the threat of bad weather. Covington 4, Tri-Village 1 NEW MADISON — Covington scored a huge Cross Country Conference win Tuesday, beating TriVillage 4-1 and improving to 9-0 on the season. Morgan Arbogast did her damage at the plate (2 for 3) and on the hill, striking out eight and getting the win. Haley Adams went 2 for 3 with a double and two RBIs and Heidi Snipes added a double. The Buccs (9-0) host Ansonia Thursday. Bradford 9, TV South 2 BRADFORD — Bradford began Cross County Conference play with a win Tuesday, knocking off Twin Valley South 9-2. Brooke Dunlevy went 3 for 4, while Erika Hart, Kelly Moore and Brooke Brower all went 2 for 4 for the Railroaders (5-3, 1-0). Jayde Mead got the win, striking out three, walking none and giving up six hits. Bradford travels to Arcanum Thursday.

Monday ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 hung on from there, holding off Newton 10-7 in Cross County Conference action Monday to remain undefeated at 6-0. Logan Welbaum doubled and had two RBIs and Gavin Alexander was 2 for 4 with two RBIs for Newton (1-5). Versailles 15, Covington 12 VERSAILLES — Versailles won a slugfest Monday, knocking off Covington 15-12. Sheldon Rank had four RBIs for Covington, while Kyler Deeter and Bryton Lear each went 2 for 4 with a double and an RBI apiece. • Softball Piqua 2, Troy 0 Piqua right-hander Haley Dotson has been a “Troy killer” since first facing them as a freshman — her only loss to the Trojans came 2-1 in extra innings as a sophomore when the Trojans scored an unearned run. But on Monday, Troy took Piqua into extra innings — as two of the previous three trips to Troy had gone — with Piqua emerging with a 2-0 win in nine innings. A walk and a stolen base with the Piqua 3-4-5 hitters kicked off the ninth for the visitors off of Amber Smith — who was outstanding all night, as well, limiting Piqua to six hits. The runner was then bunted to third, and Dotson wasted no time driving a ball just beyond the reach of the shortstop for a single to bring in the only run she would need. Dotson hurled a three-hit shutout, striking out 11, walking one and hitting one batter. Covington 4, Minster 3 MINSTER — Covington rallied from a 3-0 deficit Monday against Minster — its regional final opponent last season on the way to a second straight state berth — getting plenty of clutch performances in a 4-3 victory in 11 innings. Casey Yingst pitched all 11 innings, striking out 20 and walking only one. Jessie Shilt was 4 for 6, Connor Schaffer was 3 for 5, Yingst was 3 for 4 and Heidi Snipes was 3 for 6 in the game. Tipp 20, Stebbins 2 TIPP CITY — Tippecanoe scored 12 runs in the first and followed with eight more in the next three innings to come away with a 20-2 run-rule win against Stebbins Monday night. Bri Eichbaum got the win on the mound, allowing no earned runs in the effort. She also added one hit and two runs. Cassie Gingerich had a 2 for 2 day, Jordynn Kostyal had three hits, a homer, a triple, a double and four RBIs. Preble Shawnee 6, Milton-Union 4 WEST MILTON — MiltonUnion was defeated by Preble Shawnee 6-4 Monday. Brittany Courtright homered in the loss, while Chloe Smith suffered the loss on the hill. The Bulldogs are now 3-5, 0-2 in the Southwestern Buckeye Conference Buckeye Division. Bradford 5, St. Henry 4 BRADFORD — Haley Patty struck out 12 and walked two and was also 2 for 4 at the plate, helping Bradford (4-3) hold off St. Henry 5-4 on Monday. Erika Hart was also 2 for 4 for the Railroaders. • Tennis Bellbrook 5, Troy 0 BELLBROOK — The Troy Trojans ran into a tough Bellbrook team Monday night, falling 5-0. “Bellbrook has three excellent singles players that rival both Springboro and Butler,” Troy coach Mark Goldner said. “Matt (Alexander) and Ian (Stutz) plaed a strong match at first doubles but just fell short in the third-set tiebreaker.” Tippecanoe 5, Urbana 0 URBANA — Tippecanoe stayed perfect on the season at 3-0 Monday, routing Urbana 50 in Central Buckeye Conference action. Sam Bollinger, Michael Keller and Hailey Winblad won at singles, while the first doubles team of Adam Southers and Jacob Belcher and the second doubles team of Doug Lehnkuhl and Jon Lin also won easily. Lehman 3, Celina 2 SIDNEY — Lehman was tested Monday against Celina, but the Cavaliers remained perfect at 4-0 with a narrow 32 victory. Pierce Bennett won at first singles, Noah Dunn and Mitchell Shroyer won a threesetter at first doubles and Louis Gaier and Riley Pickrel won easily at second doubles.

Bees start strong at 6-team meet Staff Reports


The Bethel Bees performed well in their first meet of the season, a sixteam meet at Milton-Union on Tuesday. The Bethel girls finished third with 73.5 points, while the boys were fourth with 83. Milton-Union won the boys (130), Troy Christian was third (91), Bradford was fifth (57) and Newton was sixth (42.5). On the girls side, Milton-Union was fourth (60), Troy

Christian was fifth (17) and Newton was sixth (eight). The Bethel boys 4x100 team of Jason Clendening, Jacob Tumey, Andrew Hurst and Derrick Diddle broke the school record with a time of 45.2 seconds, winning the race. “Unofficially, since it was hand timing instead of automatic,” Bethel coach Brad Clendening said. “But we beat it by 0.3 seconds, so

I think it’s safe. It was our first meet of the year, and I was pretty happy with how we ran. We’re still a little out of shape.” Hurst also won the 200 (23.7 seconds) and was second in the 100 (11.5 seconds), and Diddle won the 400 (54.3 seconds). Chris Morris was second in the discus (113-8), and Eric Landes was second in the 800 (2:14). For Bethel’s girls, Maddie Ellerbrock won the long jump (15-7.5),

Savannah Swisher was second in the shot put (303) and Marieke Van Haaren was second in the 3,200 (14:35). The 4x200 team of Ashlyn Bird, Courtney Golden, Courtney Schmidt and Bailey McCabe won (2:02), and the 4x800 team of Ellerbrock, Lydia Hart, Jill Callaham and Van Haaren was second. Bethel will have a limited lineup at Miami East Friday before traveling to Cedarville on Saturday.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 cost them a shot at even more. “We have to learn the difference between being content and wanting more. We have to always want more,” Troy coach Ty Welker said. “The way we were hitting the ball at the beginning, we weren’t thrilled about only getting two (runs). You can’t leave a scrappy team like that in a ballgame.” Especially with the way Austin Reedy threw after those first two innings. Reedy finished with six strikeouts and two walks, giving up seven hits in five-plus innings of work — five in the first two innings. “After he got through those first two innings, he settled down and threw a whale of a game,” Piqua coach Jared Askins said. “A lot of hitters have trouble with his delivery angle, and his ball moves quite a bit. He did a nice job of keeping them off balance.” “He took control,” Welker said. “That’s the danger of letting a team like this hang around. He had us swinging at his pitches, the ones he wanted us to, not ours, and he had us out on our front feet a lot.” Troy’s Zach Kendall, meanwhile, found himself in genuine trouble for one of the few times this season. After two solid innings, Reedy drove in Piqua’s first run on a sac fly to cut

But Kendall made a big play at a big moment when the Indians attempted a suicide squeeze bunt. The bunt was popped in the air, and Kendall broke quickly, caught it and threw to first to complete an inning-ending double play. “That was huge. That changes the momentum of the whole game,” Welker said. “They had the top of their order coming up after that, so that was a really dangerous situation. If we don’t end it there, who knows when we get another out?”

But Reedy set the Trojans down in order in the fifth, and the Indians kept fighting. Noah Gertner led off the bottom of the inning with a double, advanced to third on a groundout and eventually a walk put runners on the corners with two outs. Buddy Nix then sat back and waited on a curveball, lacing it up the middle to tie the score. “We’ve talked as a team about not being tough enough, about not showing enough heart,” Askins said. “Over these last couple of games, I can see that we’re getting tougher.” At that point, though, Troy got tough, too. Alex Magoteaux led off the sixth with a walk and took second on an errant pickoff attempt, then Greg Johnson ripped a single over the shortstop’s head to bring in the go-ahead run and chase Reedy. And in the seventh, two walks to start the inning both came back to hurt Piqua. Ian Nadolny drove in one of them with an RBI groundout and Magoteaux followed that with a twoout RBI double. “It was a nice way to respond when they put the pressure on us,” Welker

said. “We weren’t starting our offense ourselves. That’s not how I’d like to do it, though. That’s why we weren’t all that happy with only getting two in the first two innings.” Kendall was solid throughout, giving up two earned runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out seven. “Zach threw a nice game,” Welker said. “He fought with himself and struggled a little, but if he can struggle and we can still win a game, I’ll take it.” Troy travels to West Carrollton on Friday, while the Indians (1-6, 02) host a doubleheader against Fairmont. “It’s a game of opportunities, and we didn’t get the job done,” Askins said. “We had opportunities in multiple innings to score. But there’s no need to look in the rearview mirror. It’s done, and we move on. Today just wasn’t our day. Hopefully the next one will be.” Troy ......110 001 2 — 5 8 1 Piqua ....001 010 0 — 2 7 3 Kendall and Nadolny. Reedy, Gordon (6) and Nix. WP — Kendall.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 worked out of some situations. Defensively, we weren’t perfect but we were good enough.” “It just seemed like we couldn’t get a hit when we needed one,” Newton coach Kirk Kadel said. “If we scored a couple runs, it may have made a difference. I think with us being so young, the pressure kind of got to us a little bit. We made some good plays, though.” The Vikings got on the board in the third inning when a sacrifice bunt by Sam Denlinger was overthrown to first, allowing Sarah O’Neal to score from second. Lindsey Brookhart had an RBI single a few batters later, then Madi Linn looped a single to right to score Brookhart and make it 3-0. Denlinger was hit by a pitch to open the fifth inning, then was brought home on an RBI single by Linn, who had two hits and two RBIs on the day. The Vikings picked up two more runs in the sixth as Kris Bigelow began the inning with a triple. After an infield hit by Paige Mullen, O’Neal scored them both with an tworun double, which made

the score 6-0. East added three more insurance runs in the top of the seventh — with O’Neal and Kiesewetter each adding RBIs. The Vikings had 10 hits in the game, while Newton finished with five. Bigelow had two hits and two runs, Brookhart added two hits, two runs and a stolen base. “We swung the bat well Saturday, and we were hoping we could continue that (against Newton),” Brian Kadel said. “We’ve seen Burden four years now, there have some 0-0 games going into the ninth inning, and we know she’s good. Any chance we get to hit the ball against a good pitcher, we’re happy. We did a good job of sitting back and waiting on the pitch and driving. We got a good day at the plate from everybody.” Miami East and Newton both continue CCC play Thursday. The Vikings host Tri-Village and the Indians travel to take on National Trail.
