Long-time Troy resident, Virginia Duncan, discusses her experiences and living a long life.

Life’s an adventure Troy resident spends 104th birthday sharing memories which span more than a century BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer One has to be quick to catch 104 year-old Virginia Duncan sitting still these days. Duncan celebrated her 104th birthday with a surprise party with family and friends at Troy Care and Rehabilitation Center Thursday. “I’ve been busy all my life,” Duncan said in the company of her niece Lois Ferrier, her husband Joe, and niece Millie Kight. “I haven’t sat down my whole life until right now.” The quick witted centenarian shared memories of her life’s work which began at an early age working on various family farms around Miami County. “I helped on the farm all my life — that might have had something to do with it,” Duncan said of her work ethic. “Since then, I just kept going.”

I’ve been busy all my life. I haven’t sat down my whole life until right now. — Virginia Duncan


going up and up and up as the hay got higher — it was a lot of fun.” Duncan shared her memories of her school days, arriving to school by horse-drawn school bus. “The school bus was a regular bus drawn by a team of horses. It had seats on both sides,” she said. She also shared memories of attending school at the Sugar Grove one-room school house as Churning butter by hand, milking cows without the help of the 1923 Newton Local School modern technology and pitching was being built.

Two traps have been set up in Hobart Urban Nature Preserve after a coyote was seen wandering out by the trails. Scott Myers, executive director of the Miami County Park District, said the coyote and traps do not present a threat to dogs being walked at the park, so long as proper procedure is followed. “Our rules in our parks stipsulate that dogs need to be on a six-foot leash, and the dogs that have been followed or the coyote paid attention to were off the leash,” Myers said. “If the dogs go wandering off into the reserve, that can stir up some of the wildlife. But as long as they stay on the leash, they’ll be fine.” A total of three coyotes have been spotted, but only one has approached dogs at the park. The park district set a live trap in the preserve at 1400 Tyrone Road about a week ago, while a leg trap — one that would cause injury — was added a few days later, Myers said. This spring marks the first time such traps were needed. The coyote population can oscillate from year to year in different regions, said Brian Goldick of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources division of wildlife. While coyotes are afraid of humans, they will attack dogs if they enter their habitat. (The coyote is actually from the same family, Canidae, as the domesticated dog, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.) “Coyotes are ‘denning’ and having their pups now, so they’re going to protect their young,” Goldick said. “We have documentation that coyotes will attack and kill dogs. They’re actually eat dogs.” But like Myers, he stressed that so

N. Korea hints it will soon launch a missile PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — Hinting at a missile launch, North Korea delivered a fresh round of war rhetoric with claims it has “powerful striking means” on standby. Seoul and Washington speculated that it is preparing to testfire a missile designed to be capable of reaching the U.S. territory of Guam in the Pacific Ocean. The latest rhetoric came as new U.S. intelligence was revealed showing North Korea is now probably capable of arming a ballistic missile with a nuclear warhead, though South Korea’s Defense Ministry said Friday it does not believe that Pyongyang has mastered that technology. On the streets of Pyongyang, North Koreans were in party mode as they celebrated a slew of key anniversaries, leading up to Monday’s commemoration of the 101st birthday of the country’s late founder, Kim Il Sung. But while there was calm in Pyongyang, there was condemnation in London, where foreign ministers from the Group of Eight nations slammed North Korea on Thursday for “aggressive rhetoric” that they warned would only further isolate the impoverished, tightly controlled nation. North Korea’s provocations, including a long-range rocket launch in December and an underground nuclear test in February, “seriously undermine regional stability, jeopardize the prospects


South Korean protesters from Korea Freedom Federation shout slogans during a rally denouncing North Korea’s decision to pull workers from the Kaesong industrial park, as well as its threat of nuclear war and its alleged plan to launch a missile, in Seoul, South Korea, Thursday. for lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula and threaten international peace and security,” the ministers said in a statement. In the capital of neighboring South Korea, the country’s point person on relations with the North, Unification Minister Ryoo Kihl-jae, urged Pyongyang to engage in dialogue and reverse its decision to pull workers from a joint industrial park just north of their shared border, a move that has brought factories there to a standstill. “We strongly urge North Korea not to exacerbate the crisis on the Korean Peninsula,” Ryoo said. North Korea probably has advanced its nuclear knowhow to the point where it could arm a ballistic missile with a nuclear warhead, but the weapon wouldn’t be very reliable, the U.S.

Defense Intelligence Agency has concluded. The DIA assessment was revealed Thursday at a public hearing in Washington. However, South Korea believes that Pyongyang does not yet have a nuclear device small enough to put on a missile, Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said, in response to a question about the DIA assessment. “Our military’s assessment is that North Korea has not yet miniaturized” a nuclear device, Kim said. President Barack Obama warned the unpredictable communist regime that his administration would “take all necessary steps” to protect American citizens. In his first public comments since North Korea escalated its rhetoric, Obama urged the north to end its nuclear threats, say-

ing it was time for the isolated nation “to end the belligerent approach they have taken and to try to lower temperatures.” “Nobody wants to see a conflict on the Korean Peninsula,” Obama added, speaking from the Oval Office alongside United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was headed to Seoul on Friday for talks with South Korean officials before heading on to China. “If anyone has real leverage over the North Koreans, it is China,” U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told Congress on Thursday. “And the indications that we have are that China is itself rather frustrated with the behavior and the belligerent rhetoric of … Kim Jong Un.” In the latest threat from Pyongyang, the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland, a nonmilitary agency that deals with relations with South Korea, said “striking means” have been “put on standby for a launch and the coordinates of targets put into the warheads.” It didn’t clarify, but the language suggested a missile. The statement was the latest in a torrent of warlike threats seen outside Pyongyang as an effort to raise fears and pressure Seoul and Washington into changing their North Korea policies, and to show the North Korean people that their young leader is strong enough to stand up to power-

ful foes. Referring to Kim Jong Un, Clapper told Congress that “I don’t think … he has much of an endgame other than to somehow elicit recognition,” and to turn the nuclear threat into “negotiation and to accommodation and presumably for aid.” Officials in Seoul and Washington say Pyongyang appears to be preparing to test-fire a medium-range missile designed to be capable of reaching Guam. Foreign experts have dubbed the missile the “Musudan” after the northeastern village where North Korea has a launchpad, saying it has a range of 3,500 kilometers (2,180 miles). Such a launch would violate U.N. Security Council resolutions prohibiting North Korea from nuclear and ballistic missile activity, and mark a major escalation in Pyongyang’s standoff with neighboring nations and the United States. North Korea already has been punished by new U.N. sanctions for the rocket launch and nuclear test. Analysts do not believe North Korea will stage an attack similar to the one that started the Korean War in 1950. But there are concerns that the animosity could spark a skirmish that could escalate into a serious conflict. “North Korea has been, with its bellicose rhetoric, with its actions … skating very close to a dangerous line,” U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Wednesday in Washington.

Torturing humans is wrong no matter what BY NATHAN FLEISCHER Edison Community College Student The brutal stories we’re told when we talk about torture are heart wrenching. When we hear about World War II, what is the first thought that comes to mind? The destruction of millions of Jewish lives and all the other participants killed. Jews were brutally murdered and held in concentration camps, treated like dirt and tortured. The death camps held a different fate. When Jews were deported there, it was inevitable that their lives were about to come to a screeching halt. Torturing another human being is wrong and causes loathing and revenge to take place between those parties affected. The Holocaust and the birth of Hitler led to a world war that will never be forgotten in our history. The torture that was caused to those people is unfathomable. Torture is unforgiveable and I believe that it must be stopped. Displays of force have become quite popular. Men beat their wives, leaders torment their citizens and enemies conflict against each other, causing as much pain as they can. People quarrel against each other as if they have so much to lose, when in reality, they could be working together to achieve a greater goal. This is not how to solve problems between two types of people. We all know that this is achievable and if we begin to help instead harm, torture will begin to decline. Torture does not have to be the only way to show your power over someone. There are many other methods that are much more productive and could aid those of whom you are leading. Treating everyone with respect and showing them that they have good qualities is a way that a leader gains followers and trust. Torture enrages the affected communities and infuriates the tortured. Eventually all the pain caused will leave no influence and no followers. This type of leadership has released Pandora’s Box. When one person tortures another, the feud between them grows and hate resides. As Martin Luther King once proclaimed, “Through violence you murder the hater, but you do not murder the hate.” Torture is arguably the ultimate expression of hate and has no boundaries. Though murder is thought to be the ultimate expression, when you torture someone you could find what they fear most and use that against them. The attacker has all the power and makes his target feel small and weak. Seeing people purposefully being harmed makes those who care feel an internal pain. When these stories are told, all we can do is feel something unsettling inside of us. We know that it’s corrupt. Hate circulates and then causes torture. This immoral act is a sin against humanity and should be prevented and eventually stopped. If torture could stop, imagine what good we could do as a community. Beating and harming come into course with revenge. Understanding, compromising and cooperation are all techniques that bring peace. If we understood the other side of the argument, we could see the perspective in a new light and begin to see how the other perspectives think and feel. I think that if we could compromise to come up with an agreement, cooperate together and be accountable for one another, then many problems could be solved. Torture is a wrong and immoral act. Understanding this tragedy is only half of the battle; the other half is the knowledge of how to break its tyranny and fulfill the plans we have to cease its existence.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Star-Ledger, N.J., on Rutgers’ Mike Rice had to go: The evidence against Mike Rice was too incriminating, too vile, too extreme for him to spend one more day on the Rutgers University payroll. That he remained employed this long — long after a line of Rutgers officials that winds all the way to the president’s office had watched the now infamous video — is an embarrassment. It is bad enough that Rice behaved like an unrestrained child having a temper tantrum. But what puts this over the top were the anti-gay slurs. Rutgers Athletic Director Mike Pernetti and President Robert Barchi need to ask themselves how they would have reacted if Rice used a racial slur. Our guess is he

would have been fired, without all the outside pressure. Bigoted attacks on gays should be taken no less seriously. Pernetti acknowledged yesterday that he knew the video — showing the head basketball coach assaulting his players, over and over, with heaved basketballs and hurled slurs — would go public. By last night, it was one of the nation’s most talked-about stories. That makes the decision to handle Rice’s behavior with a suspension and fines, all while planning to let him keep coaching college students, all the more bone-headed. Rice had to go. Can a lesson be learned from this? It’s a lesson that should have been learned from the tragedy of Tyler Clementi’s sui-

cide. Clementi’s story unfolded at Rutgers, right under Rice’s nose. Yet the slurs continued. People who know the coach — including players who took his abuse — say it wasn’t as bad as the video makes it look, that there’s no video showing Rice’s chest bumps and high-fives. In the end, it was the verbal attacks, not the physical ones, that sealed Rice’s fate. How should the rest of Rutgers — students and faculty, gay or otherwise — watch the video and see that intolerable behavior was to be tolerated at the university’s highest levels? Rice deserved to be fired. Now attention has to be turned to Pernetti and others who failed to see what was unmistakable to everyone else.

I have truly earned my ‘Mom Card’ this time around As the mother of a 9 year-old boy, I try to seek out things for us to do, which often forces me to get in touch with my inner tomboy. Hey, I like girlie stuff, but I can navigate my way through a creek bed too. I’m not scared of a little dirt. Have you seen the interior of my car? I’m a fairly open-minded type of person. I’ll jump in a plane, but I won’t jump out of one. That’s just plain common sense. But in the parental world, there are several unspoken duties one must complete to get fulfill the “Mom Card.” One of those things is to take the child to some off the beaten path, red-neck spectacular exposition. That’s right people — a monster truck show. I know it may shock you that I’ve never attended a full-throttle, engine revving, cut-off T-shirt, oil and gasoline-guzzling event in my life. I am from Lostcreek Township after all. And it’s not like I don’t witness these types of automotive monstrosities every time I go to the IGA in St. Paris. But when I got an email that

Melanie Yingst Troy Daily News Columnist advertised that the final show of the Monster Truck circuit would be held in Columbus, I jumped at the chance to take Evan and some friends to the show in the big city. OK, to be completely honest, I bought them purely for my own enjoyment. I've led such a sheltered life. Who doesn't love the smell of methanol fuel, truck tires as big as houses and the smell of burning rubber? So last Saturday, I rounded up my best friend's daughter Amaya and my cousin's son Clark and we headed to the big city to take in the Lucas Oil Monster Truck Nationals. We headed out early in the afternoon to ensure we would get to the arena to attend the "pit party" to get autographs and pictures taken

in front of the larger than life trucks. OK, I really just wanted to get there early to make sure the kids got a chance to scribble their names on the panel of “Chalkboard Chuck.” Alright, alright, I may have knocked down a toddler to etch my name above the wheel well. The kid was taking forever! Not only did I buy tickets months in advance, I also got tickets as close to the front as I could to make sure we had the best view in the house. We were taking this Monster Truck thing seriously. When I say we, I mean me. So as we entered the arena, I can't say that I wasn't slightly disappointed when the first thing all the kids noticed was the large disco balls hanging from the ceiling. There were half a dozen vehicles that could crush every car in the parking lot, but they were amazed at the disco balls hanging from the ceiling of the Jerome Schottenstein Center. I was crushed like the tiny Mercury Topaz at the end of the show. So we walked around some more. I took a few more pictures of the kids looking like tiny, miniature people next to truck tires big-

ger than the Frisch’s Big Boy. Getting a little frustrated, I finally asked Evan why he wasn’t impressed by the sheer size of these extreme off-road trucks. I mean, these people had to climb under the truck to get inside! That’s incredible. “Eh. Grandpa’s combine tires are bigger than this,” he said nonchalantly. The kid did have a point. Why didn’t I think of that? So I did what any loving parent would do to recapture their focus on the show — I forked over cash to buy souvenirs. I bought each kid a checked flag to wave around during the show. Once the flames starting bursting out of the exhaust, then the kids were impressed. It also helped that “The Stabilizer” flipped on its side for a little added, unexpected drama. All in all, we all had a great time. Except for the lady in front of Amaya who got the short end of the flag stick a few times in the back of the head. Next time, I’ll just take all the kids to a roller skating rink to have a (disco) ball of a time.

Sign code first revision adopted BY CECILIA FOX Civitas Media

restaurant outside table umbrellas with logos on them are not considered signs. In the fall of 2011, Tipp City hired a consulting team led by Wendy Moeller of Compass Point Planning to assist with the comprehensive zoning and subdivision code update, the first comprehensive update since 1993. The update is intended to clean up inconsistencies in the current code and eliminate any contradiction, making them easier for residents and businesses to understand. A steering committee made up of members of the planning board, city council and board of zoning appeals as well as local business owners was appointed to assist in the update process. Moeller and several members of the steering including Councilman Joe Gibson, BZA member Mike McFarland, and Tim Logan of Gem City Real Estate spoke during the public hearing. Gibson said that the business owners he talked to were mainly concerned with the types of temporary signage permitted and the “grandfathering” of noncompliant signs. Moeller explained that those signs that are currently legally noncompliant, which means that the owners sought and were awarded a variance for those signs, or any signs that were made noncompliant by the new code, will still be permitted. However, those signs could be required to conform to regulations in certain circumstances. If a noncompliant sign is taken down or rebuilt, the sign that replaces it must comply with the sign code. But if the changes are minor — small repairs, changing the


After a year of review, the sign code will be the first part of the newly revised zoning code to be adopted. The Tipp City Planning Board held a public hearing on Tuesday to review the revised sign code and suggested several changes before recommending the sign code to city council. According to City Planner Matt Spring, feedback from local businesses spurred the city’s decision to adopt the revised sign code “as a stand alone interim document,” rather than a part of the zoning code as a whole. “During its review, the committee members heard from various citizens’ organizations that indicated that an expeditious approval of the new sign regulation would benefit their individual organizations,” Spring said. Before recommending the new sign code to city council, the planning board suggested several additional changes. One of these changes will allow businesses the option of monument style or pole style signs, instead of limiting them to monument style signs only. Monument signs have a sign closer to the ground held up by a usually decorative base, and have many different designs. Pole style signs are on top of a pole and usually come in simpler designs. Other changes include extending the use of sidewalk signs to businesses in any district, not just the restoration district; increasing the permitted square footage of signs for commercial buildings from 1 to 1.5 square feet per linear foot; and adding a table of contents to make the code easier to read. The board also clarified that

name — and do not substantially alter the shape of the sign, then the sign is not required to become code compliant. “If you are repainting, if you’re maintaining it, if you’re changing the sign face but not the physical structure of it, you don’t need a permit and you don’t need to come into compliance,” Moeller said. “If you want to tear down your nonconforming sign, you don’t get to rebuild it to that nonconforming style.” The newly revised code made several important changes, including a new method for calculating the permitted sign area rather than size, which allows for more flexibility in how signs are designed without being confined to a rectangular shape. There has also been a general increase in the size of signs allowed throughout the city. According to Spring, the new regulations are more content neutral, meaning that the city does not regulate signs bases on the content of the message. In general the new code regulates signs by whether the message is commercial or not, if the sign is on or off premise, and whether the sign is permanent or temporary. Digital signs, which were previously prohibited in Tipp City, are now included in the revised code. The new regulations require that the sign message does not change more than once every 10 seconds, that the sign have an automatic dimmer, and that message changes be instantaneous. There will be no limitation on the number of colors. The new regulations no longer require that business owners in the restoration district obtain a certificate of appropriateness before they install signs. Instead, those signs will be subject to the same administrative approval as any other signs. The revised code, including the planning board’s suggested changes, will be presented to city council for their consideration before their May 6 meeting. More information about the zoning code review process can be found on the city’s website at /CodeUpdate.cfm.

AP MOVIE REVIEWS Marina (Olga Kurylenko), and her up-and-down romance with Neil (Ben Affleck). He’s a kind of sample-taking environmental scientist of polluted blue-collar areas who brings Marina and her 10year-old daughter, Tatiana (Tatiana Chiline), from vibrant, sundrenched Paris to his home in an austere suburban development in Oklahoma. The particular events and ruptures in Neil and Marina’s relationship aren’t closely followed, only the familiar tidal swells of love and loneliness.

• “42” — Jackie Robinson was the ideal class act to break the barrier and become the first black player in Major League Baseball. Writer-director Brian Helgeland’s Robinson biopic is a class act itself, though not always an engaging act. It’s such a familiar story that any faithful film biography almost inevitably will turn out predictable, even a bit routine. With an earnest performance by Chadwick Boseman as Robinson and an enjoyably self-effacing turn by Harrison Ford as Brooklyn Dodgers boss Branch Rickey, “42” hits every button you expect very ably. It riles with its recreations of the heartless, ignorant racism to which Robinson was subjected. It uplifts with its depictions of Robinson’s restraint and fortitude. It inspires with its glimpses of support and compassion from team-

Call Child Protective Services right away Dear Annie: My sister, "Suzie," has always been a bit of a flower child, and my parents think it's funny. Suzie dropped out of high school to pursue her "career" in something — art, music, dance, yoga, whatever. I usually gave her a place to stay when she got evicted and didn't want our parents to know, which was pretty often. Suzie and her husband (I'm not sure whether they're legally married) have been better since my nephews were born. What concerns me is that she won't take the kids to the doctor when they get sick. She just gives them some herbal remedy and sends them to bed. The boys aren't very clean, often have the sniffles and are almost always in clothing that's the wrong size. Suzie is homeschooling the boys, even though neither she nor her husband graduated high school. My oldest nephew is 7 and cannot read, count to 10 or say his ABCs. Suzie insists that the children be fed only vegan and organic products. When the boys stay with us, which is fairly often lately, we feed them healthy balanced meals that they wolf down like they're starving. The oldest boy told me they usually eat oatmeal with some peanut butter in it. I believe both boys are anemic. The family has, on occasion, lived in their car. Suzie recently said they are going to "live on the road" for a while and the boys will adjust. I think my nephews are being neglected. She's leaving the boys with me for two weeks this summer, and I'm tempted to have Child Protective Services evaluate them. My wife agrees. My parents don't. I'm scared Suzie will bolt with the kids if she gets wind of my suspicions. She's done it before. I want the best for my nephews. How do I go about it? — W.C. Dear W.C.: Don't wait until summer. Call Child Protective Services anonymously, and ask them to investigate the home environment now. (You need not inform your parents.) CPS may determine that the kids are in a loving, healthy-enough environment, in which case, please stop trying to wrest control from Suzie, and concentrate instead on making your home a safe, stable place for your nephews. And if CPS determines that the kids need to be removed from Suzie's care, we hope you will offer to take them. Dear Annie: My wife and I recently went out for dinner with her parents, who are healthy active seniors. Upon being seated, they spent the entire evening commenting on others. Engaging them in conversation was impossible. Every time we've gone out with her parents, they have complained afterward: The restaurant was too noisy, crowded, hot, cold, drafty, dark, the portions were too small, cold, spicy, the service was slow, the seating was uncomfortable, etc. I don't know why they bother dining out when they never seem to enjoy it. I find their behavior rude and insulting and have told my wife not to expect my attendance at any future restaurant meals. She thinks I am being unreasonable, that that is just "who they are." I realize they are not going to change, but after nearly 20 years of this, I say count me out. Any suggestions? — At My Wits' End Dear Wits' End: These are your wife's parents. Please be more tolerant, although you don't need to punish yourself. For your wife's sake, be willing to endure their "company" a few times a year. You can decline the rest of the time. Dear Annie: Bravo to "Frustrated Viewer in Canada" for complaining about the TV networks playing music over the dialogue and the actors who mumble and talk with their backs to the camera. Producers might be interested to know that a lot of us have gone back to reading books instead of watching the programs we used to enjoy. — Nancy Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Here are a few solutions for the sleepless Dear Heloise: I am one of the millions who find it hard to go back to sleep once I am awakened at night. One easy solution is to change the night-light bulb to green or blue. The colored bulbs provide enough light, but do not seem to glare like the white ones do. Another solution to the fluorescent-green numerals on my alarm clock that are too bright is to plop a tissue box in front of the clock. It is easy to lift up if I need to see the time, but the bright numerals don’t wake me up when I roll over at night! Cheap and simple solutions to a problem that many of us deal with. — Sleepless in New Jersey With only two to three electronic items in a dark bedroom, it can

When in the car, buckling up is very important. Here are recommendations from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on buckling

up when pregnant: • Put the seat as far back as it can go while still being able to reach the pedals. • Leave at least 10 inches between your chest and the steering wheel. • Place the lap belt below your belly so that it fits tightly across your hips. • The shoulder belt should fit across your chest between your breasts. • Leave air bags turned on. • Sit in the back seat, when possible, if you are pregnant. The NHTSA also recommends installing the car seat at least three weeks before your due date. That way, you have a chance to get it inspected and aren’t rushing

when the baby comes. — Heloise TRAVEL HINT Dear Heloise: I often have friends come to visit because I live close to a beach. Someone always forgets something: a toothbrush, shampoo, toothpaste, lotion, sunscreen, etc. Trying to be a good hostess, I stocked up on a whole bunch of travel-size items and saved the ones from hotels. I used a cute wicker basket, organized all the goodies neatly and placed it on the sink of the guest bathroom. Now when someone forgets something, he or she just grabs what is needed.

However, this same influence could boost your imagination in a lovely way. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is not an ideal day for important financial decisions. Be careful shopping, because you might be tempted to spend too much on elegant luxury. (Also, someone might deceive you about money.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Today the Moon is in your sign; however, it’s at odds with fuzzy Neptune. This increases your escapist tendencies and tends to block clear communication. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel vaguely out of sorts today and not know why. Don’t worry about it, because this is just a brief influence that makes you have second thoughts about everything. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A friend, especially a female acquaintance, might cause you to feel confused about shared property or something related to your debt. Don’t be so quick to believe everything you hear. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be extra-clear in all your communication with authority figures today, especially female authority figures like Mom. It’s all too easy to get your wires crossed. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Double-check all travel plans today. Don’t bite if you hear shocking news regarding politics or religion, because someone could be stringing you along. Some people are not truthful today. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Double-check details regarding shared property, inheritances, taxes and anything that is jointly held. You might deceive yourself today, or others might deceive you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Agree to nothing important in discussions with partners and close friends today, because it’s easy to misinterpret things. You might not even know what you’re really endorsing. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Be very clear in communications with co-workers today, because people might misinterpret what you mean, or vice versa. Don’t fall for a sob story. (Keep your wits about you.) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) If you are disappointed in a romantic relationship today, it might be because your expectations were unrealistic. Then again, your expectations might not even have been expressed. (Other people cannot read your mind.) PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Something confusing is going on at home. If you can help someone, this is good. But don’t let someone play you for a sucker. YOU BORN TODAY You have an inquiring mind, which you use to pioneer new ideas and concepts. You welcome unconventional, modern approaches to whatever interests you. You’re strongwilled and sometimes eccentric as well. (You do value your private life.) Nevertheless, you are outspoken about things. In your year ahead, a major change will take place, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2004.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Friday, April 12, the 102nd day of 2013. There are 263 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 12, 1963, civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. was arrested and jailed in Birmingham, Ala., charged with contempt of court and parading without a permit. (During his time behind bars, King wrote his “Letter from Birmingham Jail”; he was released on bond on April 20.) On this date: • In 1861, the American Civil War began as Confederate forces opened fire on Fort Sumter in South Carolina. • In 1862, Union volunteers stole

a Confederate locomotive near Marietta, Ga., and headed toward Chattanooga, Tenn., on a mission to sabotage as much of the rail line as they could; the raiders were caught. • In 1877, the catcher’s mask was first used in a baseball game by James Tyng of Harvard in a game against the Lynn Live Oaks. • In 1945, President Franklin D. Roosevelt died of a cerebral hemorrhage in Warm Springs, Ga., at age 63; he was succeeded by Vice President Harry S. Truman. • In 1955, the Salk vaccine against polio was declared safe and effective.

• In 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first man to fly in space, orbiting the earth once before making a safe landing. • In 1981, the space shuttle Columbia blasted off from Cape Canaveral on its first test flight. Former world heavyweight boxing champion Joe Louis died in Las Vegas, Nev., at age 66. • Today’s Birthdays: Actress Jane Withers is 87. Jazz musician Herbie Hancock is 73. Actor Ed O’Neill is 67. Author Tom Clancy is 66. Talk show host David Letterman is 66. Actor Andy Garcia is 57. Actress Shannen Doherty is 42.

Thousands remain without power in eastern S.D. SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota residents hunkered down for a third day as ice and snow snarled traffic, bowed trees and basically shut down the state Thursday. Government offices in eastern South Dakota were closed again, and many schools had previously

announced Thursday cancellations. More than 250 electrical poles in the region had been downed by the ice and snowstorm, according to the South Dakota Rural Electric Association. By Thursday evening, Xcel Energy crews had restored power to nearly 56,000

people in eastern and southeastern South Dakota and southwestern Minnesota, but another 24,000 remained in the dark, the utility said. Officials said they expected “significant progress” Thursday and that most customers would have electricity restored by

late today. Another 2,200 homes and businesses served by rural electric cooperatives remained without power Thursday morning. “I strongly believe there is some light at the end of this tunnel. However, we’ve got to make it through this thing,” Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether said Thursday afternoon. Sioux Falls received about half a foot of snow overnight after seeing two days of freezing rain that coated power lines and tree branches with ice. City officials declared a snow alert and said snowplows would be out in force. The bad weather was forecast to extend into southeastern North Dakota, with up to 10 inches of snow expected by Thursday night. State transportation officials issued a travel alert, urging motorists to use caution because of blowing snow and reduced visibility. Those without power have been forced to improvise in order to stay warm and entertained. Chastity Reimer and her 6-year-old daughter, Shila Erickson, made the 15-mile journey from their home near Renner to the mall in Sioux Falls on Thursday morning

John Deters clears the driveway for his friend, Thursday in Sioux Falls, S.D. because they have been without power since 6 a.m. Tuesday. Reimer, 34, said she bought a generator to keep the refrigerator running, but is frustrated that officials have not given a timetable on when her power will be back up and running. “Other people that lost it yesterday, it was back up and running,” Reimer said as she ate lunch at the food court. The two have been playing lots of board games over the past two days, Reimer said. Nate Kirkpatrick, 9, was also at the mall eating lunch with his grandfather, 59-year-old Dan Kirkpatrick. Nate said he might build a snowman and go sledding, but he doesn’t like the cold weather. National Weather Service reports showed that snowfall totals in western South Dakota were higher than those in the eastern part of the state reaching 30 inches in Deadwood. Rapid City had nearly that much, and set snowfall records on two straight days. Rapid City resident Nancy Smith said drifting snow has been a problem on some roads, but that drivers have been patient. “I see people trying to help each other if they’re

stuck or driving very cautiously,” she said. Smith said her daughter, who is in the second grade, is upset at having to take two snow days because it’s going to delay summer break. “But I told her that one year I think we had five snow days that were added on between April and May when I was in school, so it’s not unusual,” Smith said, adding that a lot of people in the Black Hills are appreciative of the moisture that the snow is providing. On the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in southwestern South Dakota, tribal leaders are focusing on clean up and clearing snow drifts so that they can reach some of the most isolated residents. Parts of the reservation received 24 inches of snowfall, according to the National Weather Service. “The housing clusters are completely snowed in,” said tribal spokeswoman Toni Red Cloud. Red Cloud said the tribe currently has about 15 snowplows working the roads, but some people are worried they could run out of food before everything is cleared away and they are able to leave their homes. “It’s going to be a long process,” she added.

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.

Public notice is hereby given that the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA) Division of Surface Water (DSW) has received an application for, and has begun to consider whether to issue or deny, a Clean Water Act Section 401 water quality certification for a project to extend the Great Miami River Trail with the construction of a new bridge over the Great Miami River. The application was submitted by the Ohio Department of Transportation. The project is located south of Peterson Rd in Staunton Township (40.105833, -84.228889). The Ohio EPA ID Number for this project is 134107.

Discharges from the activity, if approved, would result in degradation to, or lowering of, the water quality of the Great Miami River. Ohio EPA will review the application, and decide whether to grant or deny the application, in accordance with OAC Chapters 3745-1 and 3745-32. In accordance with OAC rule 3745-105, an antidegradation review of the application will be conducted before deciding whether to allow a lowering of water quality. All three proposed alternatives will be considered during the review process. No exclusions or waivers, as outlined by OAC rule 3745-1-05, apply or may be granted.

Starting Friday April 12, 2013 copies of the application and technical support information may be inspected on Ohio EPA-DSW website:

Great gas mileage, extra clean, new tires, 129K miles, $5700 OBO (937)776-3521 or (937)684-0555

925 Public Notices

As required by the Antidegradation Rule, rule 3745-105 of the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC), three alternatives have been submitted for the project. The applicant's proposed preferred alternative, if approved, would impact 144 linear feet of the Great Miami River. The applicant's proposed minimal degradation alternative, if approved, would impact 116 linear feet of the Great Miami River. The applicant's proposed nondegradation alternative, if approved, would have no direct impacts on waters of the state.

Rainouts wipe out Thursday’s games Staff Reports


The new spring season — cold weather at its onset not withstanding — had been fairly clean the first couple of weeks. Thursday, that all ended. Stormy conditions in the morning and persistent scattered rain throughout the day caused the cancellation of the majority of Thursday’s athletic events, the first wholesale rainout day of the season. Local coaches and athletic

directors were forced to work overtime during the spring of 2012, as an unusually high number of rainouts dotted the schedules. And now, they’re back at it. Troy’s softball game at Centerville was rescheduled already, moved to April 17. Troy’s home tennis match against Fairborn, though, was canceled and no makeup date was immediately set.

Tippecanoe — which moved its baseball and softball games up a day to Wednesday in anticipation — already had a plan in place for its home tennis match against Greenon, which was moved to today. Milton-Union’s softball game against Bethel was also canceled, but no makeup date has been set. A couple of Cross County Conference schools had the same idea with their rescheduling. Miami East moved its rained-out

Jimmy Goodall! What are you doing here at the Masters? Jimmy Goodall is one of Troy’s original characters, as well as one of Troy’s nice guys. Goodall is 50, graduated from Troy High School in 1981 and has spent the last several years running a charter boat fishing operation out of Marco Island in Florida. You never knew what to expect from Goodall in his younger days, but you could bet whatever he was doing, it was all in fun or all for fun. And earlier this week he was in Augusta having fun during the Masters practice rounds. And when Goodall is having fun, those around him are having fun, too.


putter. In 14 previous appearances at Augusta National, he has finished in the top 10 only twice. Last year, after a dismal third round took him out of contention, he bluntly conceded that he didn’t think he was capable of winning a major. Obviously, he feels different now — though there’s still some trepidation in his voice about what’s still to come. “Every time I tee off in a tournament, the goal is to play the best I can and have a chance at winning. That doesn’t change this week,” Garcia said. “Today

Such was the case for “Disco” Dave Bierbrauer in Augusta this week. He was having as much fun as any of the thousands at the Masters practice rounds. Disfigured by 11 surgeries and weakened by five years of chemo, Bierbrauer is battling neck cancer but says he’s determined to beat it. His doctors aren’t so sure, and when Goodall learned that one of Bierbrauer’s bucket list items was to go to Augusta, he went to work. He got the pros at Lely Resort, where Bierbrauer had worked in cart operations, involved, and it was Goodall who was responsible for arranging a few days of fun for his friend. The Lely pros came through with contributions that covered the flight to Augusta and the hotel room. Then another benefactor came on board. Gene Sazazen’s grandson, who lives in the Marco area, came up with two tickets for Tuesday to go along with the pair they already had from the Lely pros for Wednesday. Sarazen won the second Masters in 1935. So, with practice round tickets in hand for Tuesday and Wednesday, Goodall and Bierbrauer flew into Augusta on

Sergio Garcia tees off on the 12th hole during the first round of the Masters golf tournament Thursday in Augusta, Ga.

Surging Sergio Garcia grabs share of Masters lead AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Sergio Garcia is still chasing that first major title. It never figured to come at Augusta National. But there he was Thursday, after a bogey-free opening round, sharing the top spot on the leaderboard at the Masters. “Obviously, this is not my most favorite place,” Garcia said, trying to be diplomatic. “But we try to enjoy it as much as we can every time we come here. Sometimes it comes out better than others. Today was one of those good days. Let’s enjoy it while it lasts.” Garcia’s 6-under 66 tied him with Aussie Marc Leishman, on

a cloudy day that was made for going low. There wasn’t much wind until late in the afternoon, when a storm front approached Augusta. There wasn’t a blistering sun to bake out the greens, which were receptive to accurate shots. The Spaniard took advantage, rekindling memories of the teen phenom known as “El Nino,” who seemed certain to win numerous major titles after he battled with Woods at the 1999 PGA Championship, losing by a single stroke. Garcia has challenged in other majors, but rarely at the Masters — a course that doesn’t seem to fit his style or shaky

Harder … but better Surprising Jackets enjoy winning Spring game matters to OSU Urban Meyer doesn’t do anything halfway. So the Ohio State coach is going to make his spring football game matter, and matter a lot. The Buckeyes are holding Saturday’s intrasquad scrimmage in Cincinnati at Paul Brown Stadium, and the way Meyer talked Thursday during the Big Ten Leaders Division spring teleconference, his players would be well served to approach it like a game in the fall. See Page 18.

COLUMBUS (AP) — James Wisniewski has learned a simple yet valuable lesson in his eight NHL seasons with five different teams. “Winning is hard. People don’t realize that,” he said. “Losing’s easy.” That’s why he wants his current team, the Columbus Blue Jackets, to extend their season. They’ve suddenly discovered how to win. And when you’re winning, a lot of problems go away. AP PHOTO There are many reasons why Columbus Blue Jackets’ Marian Gaborik scores against San Jose Sharks goalie Antti Niemi during the third period Tuesday in the Blue Jackets won’t make the Columbus. The Blue Jackets won 4-0. playoffs, and really only one why

they might. Last in the NHL not so terribly long ago, they’ve surprised everyone all season. Why not once more? A cynic would point out they have too many road games (6) and too few at home (2); that the remaining opponents are daunting; and that there are too many good teams to overcome. Yet after Tuesday night’s 4-0 victory over San Jose, the young and restless Blue Jackets are just two points behind eighthplace Detroit with eight games left to play.

■ Golf

Masters ■ CONTINUED FROM 16 was a nice day, one of those days you really enjoy. Hopefully I’ll have three more of those and we’ll see what happens on Sunday night.” With all eyes on Tiger Woods, the overwhelming favorite, plenty of others stood out amid the azaleas and towering Georgia pines. There was Leishman, who had played two whole rounds at Augusta National. There was David Lynn, a Masters rookie who was just

two strokes back. Lynn was the early clubhouse leader, then Leishman surged to the front with four straight birdies on the back side starting at No. 13. The Australian sure didn’t play like someone who had missed the cut in his only other Masters appearance, in 2010. “The first time I was here,” Leishman recalled, “I was like a bit of a deer in headlights, I guess. I found myself looking around a little bit too much and not con-

time courses, but nothing like this,” Bierbrauer said. Both Goodall and Bierbrauer feel various health issues are behind them. Goodall says he has successfully overcome some health problems during the last few years, and Bierbrauer thinks the new medicine he is taking will put his cancer in remission. And at home, the conversational tone will likely be pretty vivid. You may have thought one of them won the Masters. They did have the opportunity to sit in on Jack Nicklaus’ pre-tournament media session. As a six-time champion, the most ever, Nicklaus always faces the press early in Masters week, even though he no longer competes.

Damage control mode for Rutgers NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — Rutgers University took steps Thursday to publicly address the fallout from the scandal over its men’s basketball coach, announcing an expected independent review and hiring a respected former state attorney general as the new top lawyer for the school. The measures, announced at the first board of governors meeting since coach Mike Rice was fired last week, were intended to get the university back on track during a time of transformation. Rutgers is absorbing most parts of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, including two medical schools, and is working on a strategic plan for how to catapult the school to be among the highest-regarded public universities in the nation. The meeting centered mostly on those overarching issues, though the dozens of journalists at the meeting — and an appearance from the president of the state Senate — showed the deep interest in the Rice situation, and questions remained over the fate of one board member. Rice was suspended, fined and ordered to anger management counseling in December after a former basketball program

four of five holes around the turn and rolled in a testy 15foot putt at the final hole to save par. “It’s about playing the percentages,” the Englishman said. “When I was on the ninth, I turned to my caddie and said, ‘We’re leading the Masters.’ He just looked at me and smiled. I told him, ‘I’d rather be leading it Sunday afternoon.’ But it’s not a bad thing to AP PHOTO see your name up there leading the Masters. That’s Sergio Garcia chips out of a bunker on the second always something I can look green during the first round of the Masters golf tournament Thursday in Augusta, Ga. back on.”

■ College Football

Goodall ■ CONTINUED FROM 16 Monday. Neither had ever been to the Masters, so they got an early start, lining up at 6 a.m. — two hours ahead of the opening — Goodall walked the front and back nines, while Bierbrauer, whose mobility has been a problem, shuttled back and forth between the first and 10th tees and the ninth and 18th greens. Both were awestruck by the superb condition of the course itself and the undulation of both the fairways and roughs as well as the greens. The weather was perfect for the practice rounds, as well as for the popular par-3 contest. Goodall and Bierbrauer took it all in and returned to Florida tired. “I’ve played some big-

centrating on getting the ball in the hole.” He was hardly on a roll coming into Augusta, having missed the cut in his two previous PGA Tour events. But it all came together, for one day at least. “To be sitting here is pretty cool,” Leishman said. “But it’s only Thursday afternoon, so a lot of golf to play.” No Australian has ever won the Masters. Lynn, a runner-up to Rory McIlroy in last year’s PGA Championship, birdied

employee gave school officials a video showing the head coach hitting and kicking players and using gay slurs as he yelled at them during practice. ESPN reported on the video last week, and Rice was fired, an assistant coach resigned and so did Tim Pernetti, the school’s popular 42-year-old athletic director. Pernetti, who was named last month as one of five finalists for the Sports Business Journal’s athletic director of the year award, said in his letter of resignation that his first instinct last November was to fire Rice. But it’s not clear whether he recommended that action to anyone else. Gerald Harvey, the vice chairman of the board of governors, said the independent investigation is intended to figure out how the university could have followed proper procedures last year, including consulting with internal and external lawyers, and still decide not to fire Rice immediately. “The decision seems to have been a very poor decision,” he asked, addressing reporters after the meeting. “How did that happen?” The university has not announced who will conduct the investigation. Harvey said it should be done quickly, but not rushed.

A serious matter Meyer’s Buckeyes treating spring game like a title game By The Associated Press Urban Meyer doesn’t do anything halfway. So the Ohio State coach is going to make his spring football game matter, and matter a lot. The Buckeyes are holding Saturday’s intrasquad scrimmage in Cincinnati at Paul Brown Stadium, and the way Meyer talked Thursday during the Big Ten Leaders Division spring teleconference, his players would be well served to approach it like a game in the fall. season the Last Buckeyes were 12-0 and ranked No. 3 in the final top 25. But it was all for naught because they couldn’t play for a Big Ten championship due to NCAA violations. Now eligible, and with almost everyone back from their prolific offense, they’ll go into the fall favored to unseat three-time defending Big Ten champion Wisconsin in the Leaders Division. The urgency is palpable. “A lot of times the spring game makes or breaks if we have enough trust to play them in a game,” Meyer said. Some coaches look at spring games as just another practice. Nebraska, the first Big Ten to hold a spring game this year, tried to make it fun for fans by, among other things, having offensive linemen compete in a punt-catching contest. “We attack spring a little different than other programs,” Meyer said. “When we’re done with spring, that’s the way it’s going to be in the fall. Of course, things change at times, but very rarely. In the fall we’re trying to win a game. In the spring we’re trying to identify the depth chart, not taking into consideration the freshmen that will show up in June. I want the mentality here at Ohio State to be that spring football is when you go earn a spot.” Wisconsin is in transition, with Gary Andersen having taken over as coach after Bret Bielema bolted for Arkansas. The Badgers also are looking to sort out their quarterback situation. Penn State and Purdue also are holding quarterback competitions this spring. The Boilermakers have a new coach, too, Darrell Hazell.


Ohio State coach Urban Meyer celebrates a touchdown by Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller against Penn State Oct. 27, 2012 in State College, Pa. Indiana has put an emphasis on toughening its moribund defense, and Illinois has done a major roster overhaul. At Ohio State (8-0 Big Ten), conference player of the year Braxton Miller and eight other starters return from an offense that averaged better than 37 points a game. The Buckeyes’ questions are on defense. The front four must be replaced, and Ryan Shazier is the only linebacker who has played a significant amount. Meyer said the front seven has made improvement, but now he wants to see it carry over in a gametype setting. He hopes for that type of atmosphere in Cincinnati, where more than 26,000 tickets have been sold for Saturday.

“One unique thing to Ohio State and maybe five or six other programs is you can really play (a spring game) in a big-time environment and find out who will showcase,” Meyer said. Among the players on the rise, Meyer said, are defensive back Tyvis Powell, defensive lineman Adolphus Washington and running back Rod Smith. Meyer said Miller has continued to dazzle on the field. More important is how Miller has gone about communicating with teammates and showing leadership. “He was a guy who when practice started at 3 o’clock, he was there at 2:59 because he was getting taped and taking care of his business,” Meyer said. “Now he’s one of the first ones out there. I’m pleased with a lot of things

I’ve seen from Braxton. We’ve asked him to, and he’s done it.” Andersen has eight returning starters on offense and seven on defense for his first season at Wisconsin (86, 4-4). Andersen, 26-24 in four seasons at Utah State, arrived in Madison, Wis., after winning a schoolrecord 11 games with the Aggies. Beyond getting acquainted with their new players, Andersen and offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig must identify a starting quarterback. Joel Stave and Curt Phillips will go into the fall as the top two candidates. Stave, who last year became the first freshman to start at quarterback since 2000, shared playing time with Phillips and Danny O’Brien.

the worst record in the NHL (5-12-2, just 12 points in 19 games) on Feb. 24 after a 1-0 loss at Chicago. Since then, they have gone 12-4-5 (29 points in 21 games) and have rapidly climbed into contention. Others are noticing. “They’re fighting for their lives and they’re playing a real simple game,” Anaheim forward Andrew Cogliano said. “They’re tough to play against. They move the puck really quickly and they’ve got big defensemen.” Also, they have the hottest goaltender in the league in Sergei

Bobrovsky, an enigma in Philadelphia before he was picked up by fired Columbus GM Scott Howson for a second- and two fourth-round draft picks last summer. The skinny Russian did not have a shutout in the first 98 games of his career, but he’s had four in the last 15. He was just 3-6-3 with a .898 save percentage while allowing 2.90 goals a game in January and February. Since then, though, he is 11-4-3, has stopped 95 percent of the shots he’s seen and is allowing a microscopic 1.49 goals a game. Not exactly verbose,

about everything Bobrovsky says comes back to “I stop pucks.” Boy, does he. Just a castoff like a lot of his Columbus teammates, he now ranks second in the NHL in save percentage (.930), sixth in goals-against average (2.05) and is tied for fourth in shutouts. Suddenly, he’s a Vezina Trophy candidate as top netminder in the league. “They compete hard and obviously they’re getting some really good goaltending,” San Jose captain Joe Thornton said. “There’s a bunch of workers over there.”

■ National Hockey League

Jackets ■ CONTINUED FROM 16 A franchise that has yet to win a playoff game in its first 11 seasons suddenly has captured the imagination of its fan base. Almost 18,000 showed up for the midweek Sharks game, and most were around at the end, standing and cheering while pinching themselves over what they were witnessing. “We have eight games left,” newly acquired star forward Marian Gaborik said. “We’re going to keep fighting ‘till the end.” The website measures playoff chances of NHL teams. Its calculations say that if the

Blue Jackets win their final eight, they’ll make the postseason for only the second time. If they go 6-20 down the stretch, they’ve got a 44 percent chance of making it in the West. It sure won’t be easy. After Friday night’s home game with St. Louis, Columbus hits the road for a grueling six-game trip with showdowns at Minnesota, Colorado, Anaheim, Los Angeles, San Jose and Dallas before closing the regular season at home on April 27 against Nashville. Most of those teams are also in the playoff chase. But the way John

Davidson, the Blue Jackets’ director of hockey operations, looks at it, no matter what happens the club is better off for it. “If we had kept going and gotten into a situation where there was no pressure on our team for the last six weeks of the season, that’s lost time,” he said. “Wherever this goes we’re going to — for sure — have gotten something out of it, and that’s just the fact that it’s a very good culture, it’s a very good locker room and it’s a team that’s developed because of playing pressure games down the stretch.” The Blue Jackets had
