(AP) — Rick Santorum cleared the way for Mitt Romney to claim victory in the long and hard-fought battle for the Republican presidential nomination Tuesday, giving up his “against all odds” campaign as Romney’s tenacious conservative rival.

Area fire crews including Tipp City and West Milton responded to a structure fire Tuesday at 1100 Kerr Road at around 5 p.m. According to sources on the scene the blaze began as a result of a space heater. Local sources also identified, an elderly woman at home at the time of the fire was not injured. Four pet cats perished from the fire that burned the roof of the home. No estimate of damages was available.

Libyan authorities insisted Tuesday they can and will hold a fair trial for one of late dictator Moammar Gadhafi’s sons, and they appealed an International Criminal Court order for them to hand him over. The National Transitional Council also hinted that tribal rivalries in Libya stand in the way of transferring Seif alIslam Gadhafi to a foreign court, saying it has been negotiating “for some time” with rebels holding him in the western town of Zintan just to have him moved to a jail in Tripoli.

Town bracing for decision


Tensions are rising in Sanford as a special prosecutor nears a decision on whether to charge George Zimmerman with killing Trayvon Martin. Someone shot up an unoccupied police car Monday night as it sat outside the neighborhood where Martin was killed. And a demonstration by college students closed the town’s police station earlier in the day. See page 6.

Troy BOE receives state award BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer A representative of the state auditor’s office presented Troy City Schools its highest honor at Monday’s board of education meeting. Nicole Beckwith presented district treasurer Craig Jones its “State Award with Distinction.” The Auditor of State Award is presented to local governments and school districts upon the completion of a financial audit. Entities that receive the award meet the following criteria of a “clean” audit report.

Troy City Schools have received the award two years in a row. Beckwith said Troy City Schools had another year of clear, clean and accurate audits. “This speaks very highly of you and your leadership,” said board of education president Doug Trostle. Jones credited his staff and fellow administration with its help in obtaining the honor. Jones presented the board the district’s five-year forecast which projects the district to remain in the black until fiscal year 2016. Jones said the district’s severance plan and attrition will save the district $800,000 in fiscal year 2013;

TROY $1.3 million in 2014; $1.7 million in 2015 and $2.6 million in 2016. Jones said the district is combining staff positions, including duties in the board office, to combat rising wages. Both certified and classified unions agreed to a wage freeze through fiscal year 2014. Board member Stephen Lucas said the district is mirroring what many industries experience in down economies. “In the (business) industry, you

All legislation was passed at the April 9 special meeting of Troy City Council, including the Neal Brothers Inc. modified agriculture district application on its third reading. The amended application includes a street light assessment should the city request one in the 105-acre agriculture district within the city limits. Phillip Neal, owner of Neal Farms Inc. and Neal Moore Farms LLC, said he was not interested in any modification of the original application for Neal Brother’s Inc. The legislation passed along with two dissenting votes, from Bobby Phillips and Robin Oda. “I don’t believe it’s needed,” Phillips said. “And I don’t think we need to raise any ill feelings or eyebrows on the side of the farm community.” The outcome will not affect Neal financially until the city decides to add street lights or reassess the current lights. Still, Phillips said it gives the city unwarranted authority to charge Neal for street lighting. “I hope no negativity comes of it,” Phillips said. Robin Oda also voted no to the modified application, saying she found fault with • See COUNCIL on Page 2

Since being named St. Patrick Catholic School principal last fall, Cyndi Cathcart has been doing a little CSI work — Catholic School Investigation. What she said she found was a strong desire from parents for their students to continue their education in the Catholic school setting after the sixth grade in Troy. After months of paperwork and meetings, St. Patrick Catholic School will now expand to offer seventh grade beginning next fall — a grade level that hasn’t been offered since the 1970s. “After a lot of conversations with parents, I did some investigation into it and realized we could (offer seventh grade),” Cathcart said. “My goal, too, is keep kids in

TROY Catholic education, because of my strong belief in Catholic education.” Cathcart said 13 students have committed to returning to St. Patrick Catholic School next fall as seventh grade students, with a class size not to exceed 20 students. “I’m very excited, it’s a good start with what I want to do with the school to move it forward,” she said. Cathcart said the seventh and eventual eighth grade will be studying a STEM (science, technology,engineering and math) based curriculum, which she said she is excited to start at the parochial school after visiting several STEM-based schools in the region. “STEM has the group focus and

Both enter pleas of not guilty BY WILL E SANDERS Ohio Community Media Both facing a judge at their arraignments in common pleas court on Tuesday, a Tipp City man accused of repeatedly raping a 10year-old child and a Bradford man also accused of child rape entered pleas of not guilty. Both Joel W. Pratt, 35, of Tipp City, and Justin Cain, 36, of Bradford, appeared in court after superceding indictments were filed in the case last week in the unrelated, but similar sex offender cases. Pratt has been charged with 20 separate counts of rape, all firstdegree felonies. The charges each contain the specification that the victim was under the age of 10 at the time of the crimes, which tran-

• CONTINUED FROM A1 didn’t mention Romney, who has been the front-runner for months and was far ahead in the race for the 1,144 delegates needed to clinch the nomination at the party’s convention in August. Romney has tried to ignore his GOP rivals and campaign against the president since he first entered the race last year with a pitch focused on the recovering but still frail economy. But Romney was forced to go after Santorum and former house Speaker Newt Gingrich after Santorum showed strength in Iowa and Gingrich in South Carolina early this year. Then Santorum kept on, memorably winning three Southern primaries. Romney’s campaign has long been the best funded, the best organized, and the most professionally run of the GOP contenders. Despite Santorum’s refusal to get out of the race earlier — and Gingrich hasn’t officially dropped out yet — Romney had already begun looking ahead with a unifying message. He told Pennsylvania supporters last week that “we’re Republicans and Democrats in this campaign, but we’re all connected with one des-

spired in Tipp City from Sept. 14, 2010, though Sept. 4, 2011, according to the indictment. The specification makes each of the 20 rape counts punishable with a prison sentence of 15 years to life. Pratt also faces three felony counts of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor and two felony counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor. Those events stem from incidents that occurred last year between October and December. Those charges alone, if convicted, could send him to prison for 20 years. At the arraignment, a change of plea hearing was scheduled for Pratt today in common pleas court. Pratt, who is being held on a $100,000 bond, was taken into custody Dec. 22 by sheriff’s deputies after federal authorities and an

investigation revealed the rape and child pandering allegations. A search warrant executed at Pratt’s home resulted in a computer being seized as evidence and sexually explicit photographs were recovered from the system’s hard drive. Some of those images were taken off of the Internet while other photographs appeared to have been taken by Pratt, according to the Miami County Sheriff’s Office.

tiny for America.” And Obama has turned squarely to face Romney, recently assailing him by name, as his campaign has worked to paint Romney as a rich elitist who will win the nomination only because he buried his opponents under millions of dollars in negative advertising. “Neither he nor his special interest allies will be able to buy the presidency with their negative attacks,” Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said Tuesday after Santorum left the race. “The more the American people see of Mitt Romney, the less they like him and the less they trust him.” In response, a Romney campaign spokeswoman insisted that “for Mitt Romney, this race has always been about defeating President Obama, and getting Americans back to work.” But Romney still has had to wage a drawn-out nomination fight that’s seen candidate after candidate try to block his path. That has highlighted Romney’s problem with the most conservative voters. As recently as last week, activists huddled with Santorum to try and figure out how to keep him in the race, and Gingrich was still insisting Tuesday that his campaign represents the “last stand for conservatives” as he vowed to stay in the race until the convention. Claiming a victory of sorts, Santorum said Tuesday, “Against all odds, we won 11 states, millions of voters, millions of votes.” That took its toll on Romney. It all started in Iowa, where vote counts initially showed an eight-vote Romney victory — giving him momentum and headlines. But weeks later — after the campaign had moved to South Carolina and Romney was battling Gingrich — Santorum was declared the winner.

• CONTINUED FROM A1 see these types of things and cut back,” Lucas said. “We got to be doing things a little differently.” Jones said in the education sector there are only so many options to increase revenue, whereas businesses increase product prices. Trostle said he hopes the state will help support education once the economy returns. Trostle said the local tax revenue base has kept steady through its local income tax collection. “At least we have a fairly balanced approach … looking for support from the state,” Trostle said. Board member Bill Lutz asked Jones what the state of revenue from the state would be like in the future. Jones said a new biennium budget should project what the state’s funding formula will look like once it’s proposed.

Outstanding in his field Members and past presidents approached the board of education about the possibility of renaming Troy Memorial Stadium’s field after retiring coach Steve Nolan. Bill Lohrer noted that during Nolan’s 28 seasons at Troy, the varsity football coach went 202-95, winning eight league championships and making 11 playoff appearances. Lohrer also said Nolan should be commended for the work with his football players off the field and noted many of the colleges players moved on to after their high school playing years. Board president Doug Trostle said the renaming of the field to “Steve Nolan Field” would be kept in mind, although there are many restrictions in naming public properties. Trostle noted sponsorships with the Troy Memorial Stadium included Premier Health Partners and other guidelines are in place for such an honor.

Council • CONTINUED FROM A1 the city’s amending the application rather than Neal. “I would have said yes to the original application,” Oda said. “It wasn’t their choice. I don’t like having to amend it for a ‘what-if’ situation.” The agriculture district’s application can be modified every five years. Council members also approved legislation for Miami Shores Golf Course that abolishes the grounds superintendent and maintenance supervisor positions at Miami Shores Golf Course and establishes a groundskeeper position. The reorganization will provide an estimated annual sav-

ings of $29,000. In other business, council adopted the ordinance to approve the $77,250 Downtown Building Repair Revolving Loan for Tim and Vicki Tittle at 18 and 20 N. Market St., the Night Sky Coffee property. In a separate ordinance that was approved, the mortgage lien for the property will be released from Richard and Maryellen Nilsen after the loan is complete. Mayor Michael Beamish will be out of town for the next regular council meeting April 16 and will therefore be unable to sign legislation. Council members agreed at the meeting to suspend the rules to allow legislation with only two readings to be approved.

St. Pats • CONTINUED FROM A1 Cathcart also said she is working on several grants to obtain IPads for each junior high student for the STEM curriculum. “I want the (junior high) kids to all have IPads, and I’m working to secure the funds for that and for all the little things we need here and there,” she said. “Everything is rolling and everything is on its way.” Cathcart said the students will have classes in the same building, including a classroom dedicated to the 2013-2014 class of eighth graders.

Cathcart said a teacher has been hired from the University of Dayton. She is enrolled in the prestigious LaLanne program as she earns a master’s degree in education. “The new teacher brings the support of UD in the building and will be moving us forward,” she said. “So it’s all exciting,” she said. “St. Patrick is such a good school anyway and everything seems to be rolling in the right way. “ Also, Cathcart said she is working with organizations such as the Miami County YMCA for unique physical education programs as well as K-12 Art Gallery of Dayton for its arts program for the entire building. She also is communicating with the Lehman Catholic High School to partner with their students to help tutor and

mentor the new junior high school students at St. Patrick. “Science and math is very strong, and we hope to have Lehman students work with the junior high students to work as tutors,” she said. Cathcart said St. Patrick Catholic School’s priest Father James Duell gave his blessing to move the school in a new direction. The school’s charter has changed and was approval by the Archdioceses. “Overall, it’s a focus on faith,” she said, adding that she hopes to include religious retreats for the school’s oldest students. Cathcart also said she’s working on how to offer the students after school extracurricular activities such as sports. For more information, visit

Cain has been charged with one count of rape that also contains a specification his victim was under the age of 10 at the time of the criminal offense, which took place at the end of October.

Miami East FFA students compete in state contests For the Troy Daily News COLUMBUS — On March 31, several members of the Miami East FFA Chapter competed in the State Career Development Events in Columbus. They demonstrated their skills in several areas. Completing in the Equine Management Career Development event were Amanda Bartel, Casey Copeland and Danielle Danielson. The team placed 40 out 123 teams and Amanda Bartel was the highest individual from Miami East. Their contest consisted of placing classes of various breeds of horses, identifying tack, judging hay quality and taking a test. Competing in the General Livestock Judging Contest were Justin Furrow, Lauren Williams, and Danielle Sands. They evaluated classes of sheep, hogs, and cattle. They also selected reproductive females in keep-cull classes and completed a production scenario. The team placed 107. Just Furrow was the highest placing individual from Miami East. Prior to the state contests, the teams completed at two invitations. On March 17, at the Miami Trace Invitational in Washington Courthouse, the Equine Team consisted of Casey

Copeland and Heather Skaggs. Copeland placed 13 in the entire contest with more than 100 competitors. The Livestock Judging Team consisted of Justin Furrow, Libby Everett, Colin Gump, Lauren Williams and Aliyah Wright. The team placed 20. The highest placing individual from Miami East was Colin Gump who placed 22 out of 238 contestants. On March 24, at the Mercer County Invitational in Celina the Equine Team placed 12. The team consisted of Casey Copeland, Danielle Danielson, Blane Wagner, Brittany Taylor, Austin Rush and Amanda Bartel. The highest placing individual was Danielle Danielson. The Livestock Judging Team placed 28 and the highest placing individual was Justin Furrow. The team consisted of Justin Furrow, Libby Everett, Dani Sands and Amber Owen. The teams would like to thank the farms that hosted a practice workout. The Horse Team practiced at Barbara Karnehm’s Horse Farm and the Livestock Team practiced at Justin Roeth’s Goat Farm.

Libya appeals order to hand over Gadhafi’s son THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Libyan authorities insisted Tuesday they can and will hold a fair trial for one of late dictator Moammar Gadhafi’s sons, and they appealed an International Criminal Court order for them to hand him over. The National Transitional Council also hinted that tribal rivalries in Libya stand in the way of transferring Seif al-Islam Gadhafi to a foreign court, saying it has been negotiating “for some time” with rebels holding him in the western town of Zintan just to have him moved to a jail in Tripoli. “Given the situation in Libya, this has not been a straightforward task and has demonstrated to the Libyan government the considerable difficulties which it would face if it had to immediately arrange for the surrender of Mr. Gadhafi to The Hague,” the written appeal said. The council says prosecuting Seif al-Islam in Libya rather than The Hague is, “a matter of the highest national importance, not only in bringing justice for the Libyan people but also in demonstrating that the new Libyan justice system is capable of conducting fair tri-


In this Nov. 19, 2011 file photo, Seif al-Islam is seen after his capture in the custody of revolutionary fighters in Zintan, Libya. Libyan officials say Moammar Gadhafi’s son and former heirapparent Seif al-Islam will be put on trial inside Libya and there will be a verdict before mid-June. als.” The world’s first permanent war crimes tribunal is locked in a legal tug-of-war with Libya’s National Transitional Council over who should try Seif alIslam, who was captured last year. Libya said Monday that he

will be tried there soon on charges of rape, murder and corruption with a verdict expected by mid-June. A trial in The Hague would likely take many months. The announcement came despite repeated calls from rights groups to hand him over

to the International Criminal Court due to fears that he may not get a fair trial in Libya. Seif was indicted by ICC prosecutors on charges of murdering and persecuting civilians in the early days of the uprising that toppled his father’s regime last year. Moammar Gadhafi also was indicted, but his case was dropped after he was killed by a mob of rebels who captured him during the final days of Libya’s civil war. In its written appeal to the court, the National Transitional Council says it has “expended considerable resources” to ensure Seif al-Islam is safe in Zintan. “The Libyan government is very mindful of the unfortunate way in which Moammar Gadhafi passed away and of the perilous situation which Mr. Gadhafi would face if he were not adequately protected while in custody,” the filing said. Libyan authorities say they are negotiating with rebels in Zintan to move Seif al-Islam to a “better equipped detention facility in Tripoli, that meets applicable international standards.” A defense lawyer at the

International Criminal Court assigned to protect Seif alIslam’s interests told judges last week that the defendant has been attacked while in detention and is in pain due to lack of dental treatment. Libyan authorities have told the International Criminal Court they plan to challenge its jurisdiction in the case, but judges say until that challenge is filed the authorities in Tripoli remain under obligation to surrender Seif al-Islam. Tuesday’s written filing formally appealed that decision, arguing that Libya already has begun its jurisdiction challenge and therefore should be allowed to postpone Seif al-Islam’s surrender. The International Criminal Court is a tribunal of last resort that prosecutes the most senior suspects of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide in countries unwilling or unable to hold such trials. However, it has no police force to arrest suspects and can only launch investigations in the around 120 countries that have signed its founding treaty or if the United Nations Security Council orders it to step in, as it did in Libya.

Bombers kill 16 police, civilians in Afghanistan Violence comes at pivotal time for U.S.-led coalition forces ahead with plans to hand over security responsibility to the Afghans. The Taliban claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s attacks one in the western region of Herat and the other in the southern province of Helmand in telephone messages to the media. The Afghan army and police are now in charge of security for areas home to half the nation’s population, with coalition forces in a support role. The coalition hopes to keep handing over control until Afghan forces are fully in charge by the end

of 2013, with all combat troops scheduled to withdraw from the country by the end of 2014. The U.S. may retain a small number of forces past that date to help train and mentor the Afghan army and help with counterterrorism efforts. Afghan security forces now number about 330,000 and are to peak at 352,000 by the end of the year. They are expected to take over much of the fighting as the U.S. draws down an additional 23,000 troops to 68,000 by the end of September. U.S. troop

levels reached a high of about 100,000 last year. Military officials and Gen. John Allen, the top U.S. and coalition commander in Afghanistan, expect the Taliban to take advantage of the spring and summer fighting seasons to try to undermine the security transition. Much of that fighting is expected to take place in the east, along Afghanistan’s porous border with Pakistan. The Taliban retain safe havens in Pakistan’s lawless tribal areas along the frontier, and insurgents regularly infiltrate into

Afghanistan. Coalition forces want to build on successes they had in the south last year. But they hope to consolidate those gains with fewer troops as they focus their attention on the east. Attacks have been increasing since March 21, the first day of spring and the beginning of the Afghan calendar year. According to an Associated Press count, 53 policemen and 13 Afghan army soldiers were killed in suicide attacks, gun battles and assassinations since that date. By comparison, 12 policemen and six soldiers were killed in the same period last year. Some of the attacks have taken place in areas that are usually quiet, including the capital of northern Faryab province. That suicide bombing on April 4 killed at least 10 people, including three American soldiers. The first and deadliest of Tuesday’s attacks took place in Herat, a relatively peaceful province whose capital and many districts are already under Afghan security control. A sport utility vehicle packed with explosives blew up outside the gate of the Guzara district police office as people were waiting to go inside to see government officials about various business matters. The bombing came after police in the area received a tip that the black four-wheel-drive

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Taliban suicide bombers killed at least 16 people on Tuesday as they stepped up their fight against Afghan forces slowly taking the lead from U.S. and international troops. Attacks this week have included deadly bombings far from the main theaters in the south and east, underscoring that the Taliban and its allies retain the capability to strike over wide areas of the country.

vehicle was loaded with explosives, said Raouf Ahmedi, a spokesman for the police commander of the western region of Afghanistan. “They were chasing the car and tried to stop it,” Ahmedi said. “The vehicle then turned toward the district headquarters building and tried to pass the checkpoint, but police stopped them to be searched and asked where they were going.” Moments later the vehicle exploded. The boom could be heard a few miles away. The remains of two men and a woman wearing a burqa were found inside the vehicle, officials said. Three security officers and nine civilians were killed, and more than 50 people, including children, were wounded, said Nasar Ahmad Popul, the Guzara district chief who was inside the headquarters at the time of the blast. In southwest Helmand, three suicide attackers wearing vests laden with explosives parked their car outside the police office and walked toward the entrance, said Daud Ahmadi, a provincial spokesman. Police fired at the attackers, killing one. Two others blew themselves up inside the compound, Ahmadi said. He initially reported that eight policemen died but later revised the toll, saying that four policemen were killed and five, including the district commander, were wounded.

Fat tax: Why we need to consider doing it DARLA R. GODIN Troy Have you noticed how the more healthy foods offered at our grocery stores tend to be more expensive, yet the foods filled with fat, sugar and other chemicals are cheaper? If you have not, then more than likely you are not among the many who suffered in the recession. In our economy, rumored to be recovering, few families can afford healthy food. A 2-liter bottle of soda, for example, costs anywhere from 78 cents to $1.70 pre-tax, whereas a gallon of milk spans from $2.50-$3. One approach to reduce the intake of unhealthy foods is taxation. According to a study in the New England Journal of Medicine, 33 states tax carbonated, sugary beverages; however, taxes are not high enough to affect consumption.

There are people set in their ways. If we were to implement a “fat tax,” and a higher soda tax, along with a reduction in healthier food prices, we might able Americans to lose weight and also live longer lives. If kept around long enough, a “fat tax” would also help teach Americans to eat in a healthier manner. This would affect our food industry tremendously, at least for those businesses that do not use vital materials; however, we implemented the use of cost-cutting non-vital ingredients, and we can abate them. It may take some time to adjust, but eventually the advantages would offset the disadvantages. In historic times, girth of a person signified the depth of a person’s pockets. Now, we sacrifice our waistlines to feed our families, which jeopardize our children’s health as well. If we do not take a stand soon, it is likely our children and grandchildren will experience more health problems and obesity than what we struggle with today.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Post and Courier of Charleston on the $1 coin: Printing money is a costly enterprise for the federal government, but experience says that Americans are just fine with the wasted expense. Otherwise, we all would be jingling Susan B. Anthony and Sacagawea coins in our pockets. The experience with those two previous experiments on behalf of the $1 coin says that the latest bipartisan attempt to revive the idea faces serious impediments, to say the least. Even so, it makes indisputable financial sense. In its latest report on federal cost-cutting ideas, the Government Accountability

Office estimated savings of $5.5 billion over 30 years with a dollar coin. It was the fifth GAO recommendation on behalf of such a coin over the past 20 years. Since the end of the generalcirculation silver dollar in 1935 there has been virtually no public enthusiasm for a return to the one dollar coin. The substantial federal reserves of Sacagawea coins prove it. The Obama administration announced in December that $1 presidential coins would no longer be minted, citing a lack of interest and short-term savings. Nevertheless, a bipartisan group of senators has rolled out the fiscally promising idea

again. They include John McCain, R-Ariz., Tom Harkin, DIowa, and Tom Coburn, R-Okla. “With our nation’s debt now over $15 trillion, Congress must look at every area of the federal government, big or small, to save money,” McCain said. “By moving from the costly dollar bill to the dollar coin, we can save real money and show the American taxpayer that we are serious about cutting spending in Washington.” Those who have rationally examined the issue agree that the $1 coin is the money of the future. Unfortunately, there’s plenty of evidence to suggest that it always will be.

Well wishes to my sister and future brother-in-law There is love for family and friends. There is love for pets and there is love for hobbies, sports and events. The love that is incomparable is the love between two people that have found each other that were brought together by fate and circumstance. Some people don’t believe in fate, some people don’t believe in circumstance. Well, let me say that not believing in all of that is fine. It’s not for me and the reason, is, that I have been proven too many times that the very opposite is true. My sister Trisha got married last summer and the smile that was on her face that day was incomparable. I have never seen her smile as much as she did that day, when she became Mrs. Hill. Well, less than a year later, my sister Tabitha is set to become Mrs. Vuljanic on April 20 and her smile only gets bigger and bigger as the day gets closer. As I have watched my sister and future brother-in-law, they have only gotten stronger and Daniel continues to only make my sister more and more happy. When they come home for a visit, the look she has in her eye when he is around is everything a sister could want for another sister. The hugs he gives her, the touches and soft kisses he gives her, sends her to cloud nine and I couldn’t ask for anything more.

Katie Yantis Troy Daily News Columnist There are so many fairytales and stories that we are told when we are little girls. Girls, you know the ones I’m talking about — Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty. There are all the movies where the man has to disappear and then the couple miraculously appears again and they fall back in love and are with each other for the rest of their lives. That’s not real life. It’s not real love and it’s not the way it really works. Ever since my sister met Daniel he has been around, he has supported her, he has loved her. He never left through the tough stuff, they grew stronger. He has never considered calling it quits (at least that we know of, ha ha ha) because of the distance or the traveling and he has never wanted to “think about” their relationship. Real love sticks. Real love stays around and real love never has to

reconsider reality. As we all go through ups and downs, our frogs to get to our princesses, remember one thing. Remember that what it says in the Bible has always been true. It is true and always will be true, for our relationship with God, as well as our relationship with that one person we will spend life with — that Love never fails, it never boasts and it is never proud. True love is more than quotes, it’s more than tangible gifts and it’s more than just being with someone. It’s about the little moments. The little moments that the two people grow together in. It’s the little moments that make each of them smile and it’s about all the little “I love you’s,” and “I can’t live without you,” and the little things that are given to each person by doing more than just being there, but being ever present and ever engaged. Daniel and Tabitha, remember that. As you say your “I do’s,” remember that it’s not about the people there (even though it’s nice to have them there) it’s not about the presents and it’s not about that specific day. It’s about the journey. It’s about the marriage not the wedding and it’s about forever. Daniel, love her in her worst moments and she will love you at your best. Tabitha, love him when he is gone on work trips and he will love you 10 times more when he gets home.

Remember to love each other not only when you are happy but when you are fighting. Remember to love each other through the mistakes, through the mishaps and through the trials. They will all make you stronger. Above all, take care of each other. Tabitha, April 20 will be exactly what I have dreamed for my big sister. He is exactly what you deserve, exactly what you have wanted and everything I have ever dreamt for you. The way you love through all your trials reminds me that love is true, love is real and it is exactly what God wants for you when he reveals the right person. April 20, 2012 is a new start for you. But always know that as you continue through this new life together it’s only the beginning of the journey God has planned for you as you experience it together. The love that surrounds you makes me smile and makes me want to love better. I hope when my day comes, you will see that all you have taught me will come to fruition and that I will be able to love the way you do. I couldn’t have picked anyone better for you, and Daniel, I couldn’t have picked a better brother-in-law to have for Tabitha. Welcome to the family. Your love is special, it’s important and it’s rare, hold on to it and cherish it. Love you both. Katie Yantis appears Wednesdays in the Troy Daily News.

Tulsa residents look for death penalty in shootings TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Within hours of shootings that terrified Tulsa’s north side and left three people dead, leaders of the predominantly black community declared the spree a hate crime and warned of a possible vigilante response. Quick arrests relieved many residents and ended talk of more violence, but community leaders still want the case treated as a hate crime. “We have to send a message,” one said Tuesday. But with a first conviction under Oklahoma’s hate crimes law carrying only up to a year in jail, some questioned whether it was worth the effort. The family of one victim and some residents said they’d rather see prosecutors focus on getting the death penalty. “I think they should go for murder. As many people’s lives they involved by what they did in this thing, they should go for murder,” said Deatrah Fields, whose aunt Dannaer Fields was killed. She added, “They can go ahead and seek the death penalty, too.” Jake England, 19, and Alvin Watts, 33, have been held on suspicion of firstdegree murder and other charges since their arrest Sunday. They are expected to be formally charged during a Monday court appearance. While police have not described the shootings as racially motivated, they have said one motive may have been revenge for the fatal shooting of England’s father by a black man. A day before the shootings, England apparently wrote a

Facebook post saying Thursday was the second anniversary of his father’s death, using a racial slur and lamenting that “it’s hard not to go off.” Community leaders point to those comments and the fact that all the shooting victims were black in calling for a hate crime prosecution. “(England’s) Facebook post was a help to us in helping us understand that this was a hate crime. … If it is something other than that, you would have to explain that to me,” said the Rev. Warren Blakney Sr., president of the Tulsa NAACP. “When you went to commit the crimes, you didn’t go to south Tulsa and say, ‘I’m going to shoot some black folks I see.’ You went to the heart where you know most black folk live and you went on a shooting spree.” While police have described the two suspects as white, a family friend said England was Cherokee Indian. Watts’ brothers have denied accusations that he’s a racist, and one said their family includes a mix of races. Tulsa County District Attorney Tim Harris has said if the evidence supports a hate-crime charge, he will file it, and a lawmaker who represents the area where the shootings happened urged him to do so. “My constituents often feel like the possibility of a hate crime is sort of swept under the rug because we don’t want to talk about it,” said state Rep. Jabar Shumate. “We have to send a message.”

Florida town bracing for decision on Martin case SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — Tensions are rising in Sanford as a special prosecutor nears a decision on whether to charge George Zimmerman with killing Trayvon Martin. Someone shot up an unoccupied police car Monday night as it sat outside the neighborhood where Martin was killed. And a demonstration by college students closed the town’s police station earlier in the day. Some residents Tuesday said they worry there will be violence if prosecutor Angela Corey accepts Zimmerman’s claim of selfdefense and decides not to charge the neighborhood watch captain with a crime. Corey has not said when she will announce her decision, but many in town believe it will be soon. Police aren’t saying what, if any, precautions they are taking. “We’re just anxious to know what’s going on,” Tiffany Lawson said as she fished along the St. John’s River, across the street from City Hall. Martin’s killing as the unarmed, black 17-year-old was walking back from a convenience store Feb. 26 has touched off protests around the country and stirred a debate over racial profiling and self-defense that has reached all the way to the White House. Zimmerman’s father is white, and his mother is Hispanic.

The case took a bizarre turn Tuesday as Zimmerman’s attorneys stood outside the courthouse and announced they were dropping him as their client for ignoring their advice in contacting the prosecutor. But they said they still believe his claim of selfdefense. While tensions are high, some think this city of about 53,000 — around 57 percent white and 30 percent black — will come through the crisis without violence, as it did during similar uproars.

Two years ago, after a black homeless man was beaten by the son of a Sanford policeman, passions soon cooled. The assailant, Justin Collison, initially wasn’t charged but eventually was arrested after footage of the episode went viral on YouTube. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and received probation. James Carder, a mechanic at McRobert’s Auto Center, put a message on his shop that was readily visible to anyone driving down First Street: “Sanford is still a good little town.”

Former Purdue basketball player Blalock dies at 65


Purdue in 1969. Blalock also was active in the local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and volunteered as head coach for the Lafayette Hustlers, a local AAU team which regularly competed at the national championship tournament. Sadie Harper-Scott, the local NAACP chapter president, said she was shocked when she heard the news of Blalock’s death. “He was a man with a big heart, an honest person,” Harper-Scott told the Lafayette Journal and Courier. “He was very trustworthy and would bring calmness. He was a man of passion with a gentle heart.” Blalock was senior associate athletic director from 2004 until he retired on Jan. 31. He had been associate athletics director (1999-2004), assistant athletics director (1995-99) and compliance coordinator (1994-95). Funeral arrangements were pending.

Wireless providers to disable stolen phones WASHINGTON (AP) — Major wireless service companies have agreed to disable cellphones after they are reported stolen under a strategy intended to deter the theft and resale of wireless devices. The system announced Tuesday relies on a centralized database that officials hope to be operating within six months. The database will record smartphones’ unique identifying numbers. That way, wireless carriers that receive a report of a stolen smartphone will be able to

recognize the device and block it from being used again. “We’re sending a message to consumers that we’ve got your back and a message to criminals that we’re cracking down on the stolen phone” market, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski said in announcing the new strategy with several big-city police chiefs and a wireless industry representative. Major U.S. cities have been reporting increases in

smartphone thefts as criminals steal devices to resell sometimes overseas as part of sophisticated operations. Officials say that cellphones are now taken in 38 percent of all robberies in Washington, and more than 40 percent of robberies in New York City involve phones. Many of the robberies are violent, resulting in either serious injury or sometimes death, police say. D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said her department had devoted considerable resources in recent months to

the problem, but “that’s just not enough, not in a crime as complex as this one is.” Cellphone carriers covering roughly 90 percent of U.S. subscribers are participating, the FCC said. The goal is to render stolen cellphones useless, drying up the market for them and removing the incentive to steal them. “What we’re announcing here today will make a stolen cellphone about as worthless as an empty wallet,” said Sen. Charles Schumer, who called smartphones “catnip for criminals” because they’re valuable, exposed and easy to steal. Schumer, D-N.Y., is sponsoring legislation that would make it a federal crime to tamper with smartphones’ unique identifying numbers. New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said cellphone thefts have been a persistent problem in the city even as other crime has dropped in the last decade. He likened the new approach to “draining the swamp to fight malaria.” The FCC said smartphone manufacturers will also implement automatic prompts that encourage users to lock their devices with a password. The industry has also agreed to create a campaign educating consumers about how to protect their cellphones and to release quarterly updates on their progress.

LONDON (AP) — A cruise ship retracing the route of the Titanic had to interrupt its journey on Tuesday because of a medical emergency on board, organizers said. The Titanic Memorial Cruise on its way to the North Atlantic site where the Titanic hit an iceberg and sank 100 years ago had to turn back briefly to the Irish coast so that a sick passenger could be airlifted to a hospital. Organizers did not identify the passenger or describe the ailment, but the BBC reported that one of its cameramen, Tim Rex, was airlifted by rescue helicopter “as a medical precaution.” The 12-night memorial cruise aboard the MS Balmoral left the Irish town of Cobh late Monday to cross the Atlantic, tracing the route of the doomed liner’s maiden voyage in April 1912. Like the Titanic, it began its journey Sunday at southern England’s Southampton. After Tuesday’s brief delay, the ship resumed its itinerary and is expected to call in Halifax, Canada on Apr. 16 and in New York on Apr. 19. The ship, which is carrying 1,309 passengers including relatives of some of the more than 1,500 Titanic passengers who died seeks to recreate the Titanic experience, minus the disaster. Many passengers, crew members and stewards are dressing in period costumes. Passengers are eating meals from the Titanic’s menu, while a live band plays music of the era. Two special memorial services are to take place over the weekend: The first close to midnight April 14, when the Titanic hit the iceberg, and the second on early April 15, when the ship sank. The Balmoral is operated by Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines.

Facebook says it will spend $1 billion to buy Instagram NEW YORK (AP) Facebook is spending $1 billion to buy the photo-sharing company Instagram in the social network’s largest acquisition ever. On the surface, that’s a huge sum for a tiny startup that has a handful of employees and no way to make money. But the lack of a business model rarely dampens excitement about hot tech upshots these days. As Facebook has shown, itself without ads or revenue in its early days, money goes where the users are. Instagram lets people share photos they snap with their mobile devices. The app has filters that can make photos look as if they’ve been taken in the 1970s or on Polaroid cameras. Its users take photos of everything from their breakfast egg sandwiches to sunsets to the smiling faces of their girlfriends. In a little more than a year, Instagram attracted a loyal and loving user base of more than 30 million people. Apple picked it as the iPhone App of the Year in 2011.

Medical emergency delays Titanic memorial cruise

WASHINGTON (AP) Economists mostly shrugged off news that U.S. hiring slowed in March as a one-month aberration warped by warm weather. But what if they’re wrong? What if the sharp drop in job creation signaled something more ominous? Investors appeared worried Monday. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 131 points on the first day of trading since the government said Friday that employers added just 120,000 jobs in March.

Your father is unlikely to take sides against his new wife

Today: 5 p.m.: Community Bulletin Board 6 p.m.: Around Troy 6:30 p.m.: Health and Home

Dear Annie: I am a 22-year-old senior in college and will graduate in May. There is a growing riff in my family, and most of it is due to my stepmother. She says horrible things about my family (and others) when she thinks no one is listening. But we've heard her. In fact, my grandmother and I recently overheard some awful remarks on the way to a family member's funeral. When anything she says or does gets back to my dad, he claims we blame her for everything and blows up at us. I can barely speak to him anymore without accidentally starting a fight. Last year, these tiffs ruined my birthday and our family celebrations. Dad refused to come to Christmas Eve dinner and really upset my elderly grandmother. My stepmom ran up a massive credit card debt, and my father had to stop helping me pay for tuition halfway through the school year. It has gotten to the point where I'm considering medication for stress in order to handle coming home during spring break. I really don't want to become one of those people who loses contact with her family, but this has been building for a long time. It's harder and harder to forgive and forget and behave as if nothing is wrong. What can I do to alleviate this situation? — Too Much Drama in Virginia Dear Virginia: You need to step back from the drama and understand that your father will always defend his wife. He isn't going to leave her because of your criticisms, nor is he willing to make her behavior an issue within his marriage. We recommend you spend as little time as possible around your stepmother, don't bring up her faults to your father and, when you graduate, move into your own place. Dear Annie: I have eight grandchildren from high-school age on up. None lives nearby, although I see them several times a year at family events. I truly love them all. Long ago, not knowing sizes or preferences, I stopped sending gifts and now send $100 checks for their birthdays and at Christmas. Some of them respond immediately with thank-you notes, emails or phone calls. A few grandchildren respond most of the time. But there is one I never hear from at all. What should a grandmother do? I enjoy being able to give them each a check and don't want to stop, but I admit that I'm getting more and more annoyed when I don't get a response, especially with the one granddaughter in her early 20s who never says thank you. If I send a card acknowledging her birthday, but without the expected check, do you think she would figure out the reason? — Schenectady, N.Y. Dear N.Y.: Maybe, but even if she does, it doesn't guarantee a change in her response. We suggest being more direct and then giving her one more opportunity to show her gratitude for your generosity. Call or email your errant granddaughter, and tell her you are never sure your gifts arrive because she doesn't acknowledge them, and it makes you wonder if perhaps she'd rather not receive them. Say that even a brief email would be much appreciated. Consider it a teachable moment. Dear Annie: This is for "Steve in Ohio." My father-in-law was Frank, my sister's husband was Frank, and another brother-in-law was Frank. When our son was born, we named him Frank after my father-in-law. My sister named her son Frank. So did my sister-inlaw. We also had two cousins named Frank. When we were together, things could get quite confusing and funny, but when someone called Frank Paul or Frank Peter, they knew they were in trouble. They are all grown now and just fine. The next generation is carrying on the tradition of naming their first son Frank. — Pennsylvania Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Here’s a few berry good hints to consider Dear Readers: Strawberries are delicious, and I love them for a “sweet” treat after a meal. Of course they go in cereal, smoothies, ice cream and salads. However, here are some “very berry” hints for you: • After being picked, strawberries will not ripen any further. Buy them as red as possible, because any white, nonripe part will not ripen and turn red later. • Plan to use them within one to two days. Do not rinse berries until you are ready to use them. Rinse under cold running

Hints from Heloise Columnist water, but do not soak them. Then dry on paper towels. • Store in the refrigerator in the package they came in, loosely covered with either paper towels or plastic wrap. I layer them between paper towels to help prevent mold and keep them fresh a few days longer. — Heloise

P.S.: Overripe strawberries? Smash with a fork and use on toast or waffles. LEFTOVER STORAGE Dear Heloise: For years, I have put small bits of tomato paste, bruschetta sauce, pesto or canned pumpkin in an icecube tray. After it is frozen, I pop out the cubes and store them in a freezer container, separating the layers of cubes with wax paper. A plastic box is better than a freezer bag because it keeps the cubes from getting smashed. A cube or two of canned pumpkin is great to add to a pot of vegetable soup or beef

stew. It gives the liquid a beautiful color and adds a nice, subtle taste. — Virginia L. in San Antonio LOW-SALT HINT Dear Readers: Watching your salt (sodium) intake? Here’s a fun hint to help! Take table salt and mix it with a few drops of food coloring (I use blue) in a bowl to change the color. Put the “colored” salt in the saltshaker you most often use. Now, when you add salt to the dish you are about to eat, you will be able to clearly see how much you’re adding. — Heloise



Wednesday, April 11, 2012










HOROSCOPE Wednesday, April 11, 2012 The possibilities for more personal achievement than usual in the year ahead look particularly encouraging. A word of warning, however: Be careful not to attempt to do too much simultaneously or everything could come a cropper. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Success shouldn’t be denied you unless you get impatient and start to judge events before you have all the facts at your disposal. Hold your horses. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Just because you don’t get everything you want is no reason to feel sorry for yourself. Concentrate on what you did get and count your blessings, not the ones that got away. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Instead of feeling obligated to do business with the same firm you’ve always gone to, try another company that is offering you a deal. Sentiment won’t save you dollars. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — If you fail to stick to an earlier agreement and instead decide to break the pact you made, you’ll cause complications for yourself, as well as tarnish your image. Don’t do it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — It’s fun to get together with friends and let it all hang out, but be careful to follow sensible health habits or you’ll pay a price. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — If you’re anticipating getting something for nothing, it’ll make you quite vulnerable to a canny manipulator. Don’t be anyone’s puppet. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — If you sense there is something wrong in a valued relationship, you should bring the matter out into the open. An honest, frank discussion should get things back on track. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Trying to rationalize your troubles away never works — it can be your worst enemy. This is especially so if it encourages you to postpone attending to a matter that needs immediate attention. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — It won’t be one of your better days for managing personal resources if you are more reactive than introspective. Think of the consequences before you do anything. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — The results of your involvements are likely to be exactly as you anticipate. Be sure to think positive about everything and do what leads to victory, not defeat. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Although you normally keep everything you can out in the open, you might be tempted to resort to some subterfuge. Because this isn’t your usual style, it’ll make you very uncomfortable. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — If you’re going to do something for a friend, do it out of the kindness of your heart and not in hopes of looking good and/or being rewarded.

Titanic’s wealthiest passenger built famous New York City hotel NEW YORK (AP) — A century after the Titanic sank, the legacy of the ship’s wealthiest and most famous passenger lives on quietly at the luxury hotel he built in New York City. John Jacob Astor IV, who was one of the richest men in America, went down with the ship in 1912 after helping his pregnant wife escape into the last lifeboat. But at the St. Regis, one of Manhattan’s oldest luxury hotels, the aristocratic sensibilities of the Gilded Age remain intact. Butlers in white ties and black tailcoats still roam the hallways. The lobby, with its frescoed ceiling and elaborate marble staircase, has not been altered since Astor died. And the thousands of leather-bound books that he collected have been preserved on the same bookshelves for 100 years. This year, in tribute to Astor’s memory, the hotel worked with a publisher to add a new book to those shelves. “A Survivor’s Tale,” which was released this month, is the firstperson account of a passenger who survived the disaster by jumping overboard as the ship disappeared into the water. “This was his jewel,” said Astor’s granddaughter, Jackie Drexel, as she gazed around the hotel one recent morning. “My grandfather used to come and walk the stairs frequently first thing in the morning to make sure everything was running perfectly. He conceived of it with great pride.” The copper moldings on the roof have turned green with age, but inside, the antique furniture and silk wall coverings hearken back to a more refined era. And the guests wandering its hallways are still the wealthiest of the wealthy: the hotel is a favorite among royal families and celebrities hoping to keep a low-profile and avoid the paparazzi. “The key element to everything in the hotel is the discretion,” said Paul Nash, the general manager. “We have heads of state, royal families, entertainers, politicians.” When Astor built the St. Regis in 1904, it overlooked Fifth Avenue’s row of mansions and, at just 18 stories high, was one of the tallest skyscrapers in the city. It was modeled after the extravagant hotels of Europe that had not yet become ubiquitous in the U.S. At that time, it was common for the very rich to live in luxurious

According to Nash, that hasn’t changed, either: The hotel’s presidential suite, which costs a cool $21,000 per night, is routinely occupied by the same guests for three months straight. “They can walk around the hotel like it’s their home, and nobody will disturb them,” explained 25-year-old Jennifer Giacche, one of the hotel’s butlers. While the uniform looks like it was plucked from the set of a period drama, the St. Regis butlers’ job responsibilities have evolved over the years to meet the needs of 21st-century jetsetters. They still pour coffee and fluff pillows, but the butlers of today — a rarity at modern hotels — are really more like highly educated personal assistants who speak several languages, not the stuffy servants portrayed on TV’s “Downton Abbey.” “Our guests may travel by private jet, but they’re also probably wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt,” Nash said. Using “e-butler,” the hotel’s personalized smartphone app, guests can start issuing instructions to their butler before they even check in, whether it’s ordering a limousine or a bottle of champagne. Visitors preparing for an extended stay often want the furniture in their rooms completely rearranged. One of the most memorable requests came from a guest who wanted her bathtub filled with chlorinated pool water (which the butlers obliged without asking why).

Like his guests, Astor enjoyed a pampered existence as a member of one of New York’s most powerful families. But he was also a keen inventor — creating an early form of air conditioning by blowing cold air over the hotel’s wall vents — and an avid bibliophile. With the help of Thornwillow Press, a small publisher of limitededition books, the hotel is in the process of restoring and cataloguing the nearly 3,000 books that Astor left behind. “If John Jacob Astor were to walk through the rooms, it would be entirely familiar to him,” said Luke Ives Pontifell, Thornwillow’s founder. “He would recognize the books on the shelves. It’s a time capsule.” On April 4, the St. Regis held a small dinner in the hotel library to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking. The guests, who included some of Astor’s descendants, were dressed in fur and feathers as they perused his books and dined on food inspired by the last meal served aboard the ship. They also received copies of “A Survivor’s Tale,” which was written by Jack Thayer and is being published publicly for the first time with the permission of his family. Thayer, who was 17 years old then, recounted how his mother escaped in a lifeboat, but his father perished along with most of the men on board. Thayer survived by clinging to a lifeboat for hours in the freezing sea, listening to the wailing of the passengers who froze to death.

Cards’ Lohse stingy

The Milton-Union pitcher to get the win in Saturday’s contest against Brookville was Chloe Smith, not Chelsea Smith as Sunday’s addition of The Miami Valley Sunday News stated. The win was Chloe Smith’s first as a varsity pitcher. The Bulldogs won the game, 9-5.

Keeps Reds’ bats silent in 3-1 win CINCINNATI (AP) — Carlos Beltran and David Freese homered again on Tuesday night, and Kyle Lohse provided another stingy performance, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 3-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The defending World Series champions are 5-1 for the first time since 2008. Beltran, counted on to help make up for the loss of Albert Pujols, hit his third homer off Mike Leake (0-1). Freese, the World Series MVP, added a tworun shot off Leake also his third. St. Louis came into the game leading the majors with nine homers. It has five in its first two games at Great American Ball Park.

MONDAY RESULTS • Baseball Greenville 13, Troy 9 TROY — The Troy Trojans fell for the first time in Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division play Monday, losing in extra innings 13-9 to Greenville. Down one run going into the bottom of seven, the Trojans battled back to tie the game after Ian Nadolny ripped a triple to open the inning, and later scored on a passed ball. After Greenville added three runs in the eighth, Troy scored three runs to send the game to the ninth. But Greenville plated four in the ninth, and Troy couldn’t mount an attack. Tippecanoe 9, Tecumseh 0 TIPP CITY — The Tippecanoe Red Devils piled on five runs in the first and two more in the second, which was plenty of run support for pitcher Carter Langdon, who struck out six batters, as Tipp rolled to a 9-0 victory over Tecumseh on Monday. “Carter was dominant,” Tippecanoe coach Bruce Cahill said. “I don’t think he ever allowed two baserunners on at the same time. He just threw strikes the whole game. Carter has got to be one of the better pitchers in the area.” Cole Quillen went 2 for 3 with a double and three RBIs, Ben Hughes added a double and two RBIs and Zach Blair was 2 for 2 with a stolen base in the win. Fairlawn 10, Newton 5 PLEASANT HILL — The Newton Indians were topped by the Fairlawn Jets 10-5 on Monday. Brian Schwartz pitched five innings for the Indians, giving up only two earned runs, three hits and striking out five. On offense, it was freshman Dustin Coate shining once again, going 2 for 4 with a triple and an RBI. Brandon Delcamp went 2 for 3 with a run scored and Mitchell Hussong was 2 for 4 with three RBIs. “We outhit them. We outpitched them,” Newton coach Gregg Carnes said. “But our defense was lackluster at times. The kids showed a lot of fight, and we are happy about that. ”We found out we had another good pitcher in Brian Schwartz. He had only allowed one hit through four, three hits through five. Freshman Dustin Coate continues to impress.”

Wave sweeps Trojans Seagraves sets TC mark for Ks Staff Reports


Bethel’s Jon Ellerbrock fires to the plate as third baseman Jimmy Pelphrey looks on during Tuesday’s win over Miami East.

Bees sink Vikes 9-run 5th inning propels Bethel to 10-0 BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor A bases-loaded squeeze bunt took some wind out of Miami East’s sails. An error on the next batter with two outs capsized the Vikings’ ship. And Bethel’s Jon Ellerbrock made sure no lifeboats got away. The Bees won for the 10th straight time, answering after Miami East tied the game at 2-2 in the top of the fifth with a nine-run rally in the bottom of the inning, BRANDT and Ellerbrock allowed only three hits in a sixinning complete game as Bethel topped Miami East 12-2 in a key Cross County Conference matchup. Ellerbrock struck out four, walked four and hit a batter — with two of those walks coming to lead off the top of the fourth. A sacrifice bunt, an RBI groundout and a misjudged fly ball later, Miami East (6-3, 2-1 CCC) had evened things up at 2-2 without the benefit of a hit in the inning. “Jon walked a couple batters and we misplay a fly ball, and suddenly the game’s tied,” Bethel coach Brett Brookhart said. “But that’s the way we’ve played this year. Teams will come back on us — and we always have answered the call.”

GREENVILLE — The Troy Trojans let Greenville hang around on Tuesday, and it came back to bite them as Greenville scored two in the fifth and one in the six inning to score a comefrom-behind win in Greater Western Ohio Conference North play, 6-5. “It was back-and-forth through five innings,” Troy coach Ty Welker said. “We took a 5-3 lead into the fifth. We walked the leadoff (hitter) in the fifth and sixth innings, and that led to them scoring runs. (Ben) Langdon pitched a good game. He just got into some trouble in the fifth when he walked the leadoff batter.”

Lohse (2-0) has made impressive starts in Florida’s summery warmth and Cincinnati’s April chill. He took a no-hitter into the eighth inning of a 4-1 win in Miami last Wednesday, allowing only one run and two hits. With temperatures in the 40s on Tuesday night, he was sharp again, allowing Joey Votto’s sacrifice fly and four hits in six innings.

Seagraves, who had seven Ks in the game, now has 185 strikeouts for his career — and has ran off a 4-0 record to start the season. “Congratulations to Michael Seagraves,” Troy Christian coach Bill Campbell said. “He broke the school record of 184 strikeouts. He now has 185. But he didn’t pitch his first few years of high school, so he basically did this in about two years.” Alec Patterson and David Miami East’s Colton Bowling fouls off a pitch Tuesday against Bethel.

Marlins’ Guillen apologizes over Castro flap MIAMI (AP) — A contrite Ozzie Guillen sat in the heart of Little Havana seeking forgiveness for what the Miami Marlins manager called the biggest mistake of his life saying he admired Fidel Castro. This wasn’t some offhanded insult about a sports writer, the type of thing that got the outspoken Guillen in trouble in Chicago. This was personal to the fan base that the Marlins rely on so much that they built their new stadium in the middle of the city’s Cuban-American

neighborhood. Castro is the sworn enemy of those fans. So after being suspended for five games Tuesday, the Marlins manager tried to quell the tempest. “I’m here on my knees to apologize,” Guillen said. “I’m very sorry about the problem, what happened. I will do everything in my power to make it better. … When you make a mistake like this, you can’t sleep.” A chastened Guillen, who has a history of polarizing comments about gays and immigrants, among others,

spoke without a script a n d made no d i s claimers. He said he’ll do whatever he can to GUILLEN repair relations with CubanAmericans angered by his praise of the Cuban dictator, remarks he said he didn’t mean. Guillen, who is Venezuelan, told Time mag-

azine he loves Castro and respects the retired Cuban leader for staying in power so long. In response, at least two Miami politicians said Guillen should lose his job. Callers on Spanish-language radio in Miami agreed and 100 demonstrators picketed Marlins Park toting signs like “NO APOLOGIES FIRE HIM NOW.” “He is full with hypocrisy,” said Luis Martinez, who has lived in Miami since the late 1950s. “I don’t accept any kind of pardon from him. They

should get him out.” The team didn’t consider firing Guillen or asking him to resign five games into his tenure, Marlins president David Samson said. Guillen was hired to help usher in a new baseball era for the Marlins, saddled in recent years with mediocre teams and worse attendance. The team was to rely on South Florida’s large Cuban-American population to help rebuild its fan base with the $634 million ballpark that opened last week. At the hourlong news conference Tuesday morn-

ing, there was little evidence of Guillen’s roguish charm or quick wit, which have made him a favorite with fans and reporters since he became a major league manager in 2004. Speaking somberly, he took full responsibility for his comments, but said they were misinterpreted by Time’s reporter. “It was a personal mistake of the thing I had in my mind and what I said,” Guillen said in Spanish. “What I wanted to say in Spanish, I said in English in a wrong way.”

Bubba breaks barriers


Watson shows a new way to win Masters AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Bubba Watson is the Masters champion and a guy worth watching, whether that means spending money on a ticket or time in front of the TV. He keeps life simple, hits outrageously difficult shots and makes golf look fun. What’s not to like about that? CBS Sports said its overnight rating from the final round of the Masters, which Watson won in a playoff over Louis Oosthuizen, drew an 8.1. That was down from the 10.4 the previous year when eight players — including Tiger Woods — had a share of the lead at some point and Charl Schwartzel won it with four birdies at the end. Theories abound on the television audience. It was Easter Sunday, which typically brings lower ratings. Woods wasn’t around — he tied for 40th for his worst finish in a major except for the three times he missed the cut. And to a broader audience, Watson didn’t have much of a Q-rating unless someone happened to see some of his crazy videos or they just liked hearing his name. That should change. The winning shot for Watson, which instantly became part of Augusta National lore, was a gap wedge that he hooked out of the woods, around the trees and onto an elevated green that set up an easy par on the second playoff hole. He referred to it as a “crazy” shot and “pretty easy.” For him, it was both. Watson has been doing that stuff for years. Just last month at Doral,


Bubba Watson silences the crowd during the Masters golf tournament Sunday in Augusta, Ga with a tree in front of him and the green 135 yards away, he hit a 9-iron and aimed it 20 yards right of the green, and then sliced it back beyond the flag until the strong left-to-right wind pushed back on the other side of the hole, 6 feet away. Yeah, pretty easy. Watson made the rounds Tuesday, typical of a Masters champion, but with a few twists. Golf Channel wasn’t on his list, but he paid a surprise visit in his green jacket for the “Morning Drive” show. Then, it was off to New York for scheduled interviews, concluding with David Letterman. Asked about the TV rat-

ings, Watson said golf was in a good place with younger players starting to emerge, and how he might reach some who aren’t on tour yet. “Hopefully, I can influence some kids to start playing … and build the game bigger and bigger,” Watson said on CNBC. He’s a tough act for anyone to follow because no one hits the ball the ball like Bubba. That’s why Woods used to invite him along for practice rounds early in the morning at the majors. He was curious to see this selftaught guy from the backwoods of Bagdad, Fla., hit shots that went high or low, left or right, as if it were a whiffle ball, which is how

Watson learned to play as a kid. Anyone can hit the ball in the trees. The hard part is getting out of a mess, and that’s what makes Watson fun to watch. His win at the Masters was a reminder that golf doesn’t require the highest level of training. It just takes desire, and a lot of practice. “I think people are going to realize everybody has a chance to do this,” Watson said. “You don’t need expensive golf coaches. You don’t need expensive golf courses. You don’t need all that. You can just learn to play in your backyard and go to the municipal courses and learn how to play.”

but she pitched well,” Troy coach Scott Herman said. “Take away that first inning, and we played even with them the rest of the way. I was proud of the girls for bouncing back and competing after Monday.” Two more freshman got a shot in the game, as well. Rainy Rohlff played second base and Victoria Adams started in right field and moved to third base, and both got their first varsity hits. And senior Shelby Schultz, who had been playing at first base, moved to center field — and had a big impact, tracking down a fly ball on a scorched shot. “There was a ball that was tagged, and she made a great play,” Herman said. “Boy did she make a difference there.” Troy travels to Versailles Thursday and Beavercreek Friday before returning home Saturday for a makeup game against Franklin Monroe.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 ing second baseman Brandon Phillips a deal through 2017 worth $72.5 million. It came only five days after Votto got an additional 10 years and $225 million, looking to turn the 2010 NL Central champions into a consistent contender. Phillips got a cramp in his left hamstring during a 7-1 loss to the Cardinals on Monday night and is expected to miss several days. For the second game in a row, the Cardinals got to a Reds starter before he could break a sweat. They hit three homers in the first inning off Homer Bailey on Monday night. Beltran hit Leake’s fifth pitch into the stands in right field. Leake escaped another big Cardinals first inning by getting Yadier Molina to ground into a double play with the bases loaded. Molina also grounded into a double play with two runners aboard in the eighth. Lance Berkman, who has the most homers by a visiting player at Great American Ball Park, tripled into the right-field corner in the sixth. Freese followed with his third homer, a drive that bounced off the top of the wall in right field and caromed up into the stands. Berkman left the game in the eighth with tightness in his left calf. Zack Cozart hit his second triple of the season in the bottom of the inning and scored on Votto’s sacrifice fly, making it 3-1. • Phillips Signs Big Contract CINCINNATI — With every big deal, the smallmarket Cincinnati Reds show that they’re serious about winning. The Reds made another significant financial com-

mitment on Tuesday, giving All-Star second baseman Brandon Phillips a six-year, $72.5 million contract. That came only five days after former NL MVP Joey Votto got 10 years and $225 million added to his deal. They’re all-in for a run of playoff appearances. “I think this puts us in a pretty good position to build around two premier players on the everyday side, and with some of the pitchers we have to be a contending club for years to come, hopefully,” general manager Walt Jocketty said. “It’s not easy. A lot of things have to go right for you. “But we’re getting deeper and deeper in talent. That’s what it’s going to take in a small market.” Phillips’ deal is the last major one for a while. It’s been in the works since last year. The Reds couldn’t agree on the length of a new deal with Phillips, so they exercised the 2012 option on his old contract that is worth $12.5 million. They remained at odds until the Reds agreed to a longer deal. “We originally had a certain number of years in mind that we were going to do the deal,” Jocketty said. “Then we realized that we’d probably have to extend another year, and that’s what we did.” The new deal adds salaries of $10 million for next year, $11 million in 2014, $12 million in 2015, $13 million in 2016 and $14 million in 2017. The Reds have gone on a spending spree to try to turn themselves into an annual contender. They gave right fielder Jay Bruce a $51 million, six-year deal after the 2010 season, when the Reds won the NL Central and got swept by Philadelphia in the playoffs.

Monday ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Dixie 14, M-U 2 MILTON — WEST Milton-Union fell to Dixie 142 on Monday. The Bulldogs drop to 6-7 on the season with the loss. Minster 7, Covington 6 MINSTER – Covington baseball coach Mitch Hirsch learned a lot about his young baseball team as it took the defending state champions to the limit after being down 6-0, before falling 7-6. Kyler Deeter and Austin Angle combined to throw a quality game for Covington in the losing effort. Ryan Craft and Steven Blei combined for five RBIs. • Softball Greenville 19, Troy 3 TROY – Troy struggled against perennial power Greenville Monday in Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division play, falling to the defending division champ, 19-3. Tippecanoe 10, Tecumseh 0 TIPP CITY – CC Alvarez was dominant again, fanning eight and giving up three hits, and the Tippecanoe offense did the rest en route to a 10-0 six-inning win against Tecumseh on Monday. Alex Dawes had a double, two hits and two RBIs, Jordyann Kostyal had a triple, two RBIs and a run, Hannah Beck added two hits and an RBI and Cassie Gingerich had two hits, a run and an RBI. M-U 7, Dixie 2 WEST MILTON — Pitcher Andrea Fetters improved to 73 on the year as Milton-Union defeated Dixie 7-2 on Monday. Fetters had six strikeouts to help the Bulldogs improve to 10-3, 3-2 in the Southwestern Buckeye League Kenton Trail Division. Covington 3, Minster 0 MINSTER — Covington was able to overcome the high winds and blowing sand to post a hard-fought 3-0 victory over the Minster Wildcats. Covington’s final run came in the top of the seventh inning on an inside-the-park home run by senior Hannah Pond, who connected with a line shot into the wind that carried all the way to the bottom of the fence in right-center.

Hudson propels Cavs to victory

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Joey Serrer — who started off the scoring in the game with a two-out solo blast in the first — led off the bottom of the fifth with a double, and Colin Hoke drove him in with a double to center to give the lead back to Bethel (10-0, 2-0 CCC). After a strikeout, Jordan Elam ripped an RBI single, Jimmy Pelphrey reached on a bloop single and Nate Reese was hit by a pitch to load the bases for nine-hitter Matt Bush. Bush dropped a gorgeous bunt down the first baseline, driving in a run to make it 5-2 Bees with runners on second and third and two outs. “That squeeze bunt was a big play,” Brookhart said. “We’d already put a couple of runs across, so if we can get one more it deflates them, takes the wind out of their sails a bit more.” Joe Zimmerman then hit a routine grounder to short that looked like it would end the inning, but the throw to first got away — bringing in two more runs and prolonging the inning. And things kept sinking for the Vikings (6-3, 2-1 CCC). When you have an error like that, you’ve got to pick your heads up and keep playing,” Miami East coach Barry Coomes said. “(Pitcher) Garrett (Mitchell) was throwing a good game. But when you’ve got an error here or there and you’ve got to throw 10-15 extra pitches an inning, that pitch count mounts up. You get a little tired. Then those borderline pitches you were getting earlier maybe go a little wider, you lose some velocity — those errors take a toll.” That was the last batter Mitchell would face. He went 4 2-3 innings, striking out four and hitting four batters. He gave up five hits and two runs through four before giving up four hits and six runs in the fifth. And Bethel just kept hitting. Ellerbrock drove in another run with a single, Serrer was hit by a pitch and Hoke ripped his second RBI double of the inning — this one bringing in two runs. Elam added another RBI single before the Vikings finally got out of the inning down 11-2. All told, Bethel sent 15 batters to the plate in the inning, scoring nine runs on seven hits, a walk, three hit-batters and an error. Serrer put an end to the game in the bottom of the sixth, driving in Bush with an RBI single to complete a 3 for 3 day. Hoke was 2 for 3 with two doubles and three RBIs, Bush and Elam were 2 for 4 with two RBIs, Pelphrey was 2 for 3 with two runs and Ellerbrock was 2 for 5 with a run and an RBI. “Joey (hitting the home run in the first) gave us

Casspi scored five points, including a 3-pointer, while Luke Walton hit another 3. Cleveland’s spurt continued when Hudson hit a jumper, a 3 and a layup. He added seven more points in the period as the Cavaliers pulled away. Cleveland outscored Charlotte 31-19 in the final quarter. Hudson, signed from the NBA Development League last month, scored 49 points in the previous two games, including a career-high 26 Sunday against New Jersey. He had eight rebounds and six assists while hitting 9 of 18 from the field against the Bobcats. The Cavaliers had lost their last two games at Quicken Loans Arena by a combined 72 points, making them the first team in NBA history to suffer back-toback home defeats by 35plus points. Cleveland lost 121-84 to Milwaukee on March 30 and 125-90 to San Antonio on April 3. Cleveland, which had lost 10 of 11, was once again without point guard Kyrie Irving, a virtual lock to be the Rookie of the Year, and center Anderson Varejao. Irving has missed five of the last six games with a sprained right shoulder while Varejao has been out for 30 straight games with a broken right wrist.

We’ve hit a lot of long fly balls, a lot of them off the fence, this year, and we finally got one to go over,” Brookhart said. “And Colin had a heck of a day, too. Our three-four-five guys have kind of struggled during this winning streak. We can hit, and if we can string them together like we did today, we’ll be tough to beat.” Brandon Kirk was 1 for 3 with an RBI for Miami East, while Mitchell and Colton Bowling were both 1 for 3. “We’ve got to be focused at the plate,” Coomes said.

“We’re leaving too many guys in scoring position lately. We need to be in the ballgame and thinking about what we’ve got to do next, not thinking about other things.

offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr.; offensive line coach Aaron Kromer; new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. Last season, Vitt and Carmichael took on significant additional responsibilities when Payton was rehabilitating for weeks from a broken leg. Vitt, who also oversees linebackers, took on many of the broader responsibilities, including handling the head coach’s media availability. Carmichael began calling plays, something Payton had done before his injury. Payton allowed Carmichael to continue calling plays through the final 10 regular season games of 2011 as the Saints went 9-1 and broke numerous NFL offensive records.


Parcells will not coach Saints NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Bill Parcells is unlikely to become the New Orleans Saints’ interim coach, according to multiple reports. Parcells prefers to remain retired and not replace his protege and friend, Sean Payton, who will serve a season-long suspension for his role in New Orleans’ bounty system, the reports said. Saints spokesman Greg Bensel declined Tuesday to confirm Parcells has been ruled out as a possible Payton replacement, saying the team “has nothing to report” concerning the search for an interim coach. If the Saints decide to select a replacement from their existing staff, the leading candidates are: assistant head coach Joe Vitt, who will serve a six-game suspension;

CLEVELAND (AP) — Lester Hudson scored 25 points, including 14 in the fourth quarter, and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Charlotte Bobcats 10390 on Tuesday night. Anthony Parker, who missed the two previous games with a bruised sternum, scored 19 points while Antawn Jamison added 17 for Cleveland. Gerald Henderson led Charlotte with 21 points. Rookie Kemba Walker scored 20 while D.J. Augustin, back in the starting lineup after missing three games with right knee tendinitis, added 16. The Bobcats have lost 13 in a row to fall to a leagueworst 7-49. Charlotte hasn’t won since beating Toronto on March 17. The Bobcats’ last road victory came against New Orleans on March 12, and they are a league-worst 3-26 away from home. The Cavaliers played lethargic basketball for three quarters against the worst team in the league before using a 26-7 run in the final period to put the Bobcats away. Cleveland used a 10-0 run early in the fourth to take control. D.J. White started the quarter with a jumper to give Charlotte a 73-72 lead before the Cavaliers took over. Omri
