Girl injured in fall Incident investigated as possible child abuse

Overfield Tavern preserves past About 200 years ago, Benjamin Overfield’s tavern and inn served as a place for mingling, lodging and, of course, a good drink. Today, the two-story Federal-style building is a historical landmark that has been meticulously restored and decorated to reflect the style and utility of the early-1800s structure.

It’s a family tradition Rathmann joins grandmother as pageant queen BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer myingst@tdnpublishing.com

Tippecanoe takes control Two years ago, Newton won a state championship. Last season, Tippecanoe reached the state’s final four. Both teams accomplished those feats with strong pitching and solid defense. Friday night’s kickoff to the Strike Out Cancer Classic at Kyle Park in Tipp City featured a lot more of that third thing both teams are known for — hitting. See Sports, Page 17.

Royalty continues to run in the Rathmann family. Troy High School senior Logan Rathmann held back tears as she explained why she decided to try out for the annual honor for the first time. “My grandmother (the late Wilma Willoughby) was (Tipp City) Mum Festival Queen when she was my age,” Rathmann said as she held back tears after being crowned by 2011 Strawberry Festival Queen Emily Henry. “I did this in honor of her since she passed away five years ago. Troy is my hometown and the Strawberry Festival is our festival so I took a chance — I can’t believe it.” “It was a wonderful experience — I’m just so happy,” Rathmann said. Rathmann sang “There’s a Place For Us” and was accompanied by her vocal coach Tim Williams. “I chose this song because the

message says you can be anything you want to be and it’s so true,” Rathmann said. Rathmann said she plans to attend The Ohio State University next fall. She said the $1,200 scholarship will help fund her education, which she said she is paying for herself. The $1,200 scholarship was donated by Dr. Charles Stevens, DDS, Dr. Mark Bentley, DDS, Dr. Julie Jones, DDS and Fulton Farms. Rathmann is the daughter of Penny and Bill Johnson and Kolin Rathmann. Troy High School junior Alison Kolber was crowned first attendant and said she participated because of her love of being on stage. “I’ve always loved performing in front of crowds and competing in this pageant combined the best of two worlds,” Kolber said. Logan Rathmann, from Troy High The 17 year-old sang “A Change School, performs a song during in Me” from the musical “Beauty the talent competition of the 36th and the Beast.” Kolber received annual Strawberry Festival Queen’s Pageant Friday at Troy • See QUEEN on 2 High School.

A 4-year-old girl suffered grave injuries related to falling down a flight of wooden stairs Thursday night inside a home at 1012 Caldwell St. and was airlifted by CareFlight to Children’s Medical Center in Dayton. Authorities have taken a male suspect, identified as Travis L. Gauldin, 21, of Piqua, who lives at the residence, into custody on an unrelated count of domestic violence following questioning by police, said Piqua Police Chief Bruce Jamison. At this time the child’s name is not being released by the police department, Jamison said, citing the police investigation, which could potentially be investigated as a homicide if the toddler passes away. No condition on the victim was available from the hospital, but Jamison said the trauma is “pretty serious.” “We began investigating it as a possible child abuse case and it is still pending as that,” Jamison said. “So we are not releasing any

Police are describing a Friday morning incident involving a mother running over her 3-yearold child in the driveway of their 917 New Haven Road home as an accident. The child remains hospitalized after she suffered serious injuries. The girl has been identified by police as Makayla Smith, 3, and she was listed in fair condition Friday afternoon at Children’s Medical Center in Dayton, which is where the toddler was airlifted by CareFlight.

said while the incident remains under investigation, it appears to have been caused accidentally. “It’s just one of those situations where parents are busy with several children,” Collins said. “Sounds like it was just totally an accident.”

I made friends for life doing this.” Reed is the daughter of David and Jeannine Reed. Covington native Emily Henry took her final walk as Queen Friday. Henry said the experience was a

once in a lifetime opportunity and enjoyed her year on the court. “I met a lot of nice people and it was a valuable experience,” Henry said. Henry said she used her scholarship money at Mount Saint Joseph College in Cincinnati and is studying psychology and pre-physical therapy. “I had a wonderful time going to all the parades and being part of the events,” Henry said. “My favorite part of the festival was riding in the golf cart with Mayor (Michael) Beamish and (2011 Festival Chairman) David Geiger to vote on all the floats — that was my favorite part.” For more information about this year’s festival, visit www.gostrawberries. com.

Gibson also said that the early childhood education area, medical technology location and all academic rooms have been renovated as well and are all occupied. The career center petitioned the OSFC to allow the school to construct a permanent space to house students during the construction instead of using modular trailers. This “swing space” has 12 rooms that are now being used, allowing an entire wing to be vacated. “That’s been a real advantage to have students in a more conducive learning environment,” Gibson said. By vacating an entire wing, construction crews had flexibility when starting this area in December. According to Gibson, renovation in this wing is about 90 percent complete. The school will get a new heating, ventilation

Two children were transported by CareFlight following an incident that took place at approximately 3 p.m. Friday. The first child, a 12year-old boy, was transported to Children’s Medical Center in Dayton immediately after he crashed an electric scooter, according to the Miami County Sheriff ’s Office. The incident occurred in an alleyway in the village, according to the Miami County 9-1-1 dispatch. CareFlight was called at approximately 5 p.m. to return to the village to transport a 3-year-old to Children’s. The dispatcher said the child was involved in the same crash earlier in the day. It is not known whether the 3-year-old was on the

scooter with the 12-yearold when the crash occurred, or whether the younger child was on a different scooter or cycle. According to the Miami County Sheriff ’s office, the 12-year-old boy was transported as a precaution following the accident. Sheriff ’s deputies spoke with a family member of the older child at the scene of the accident, who said he was talking when CareFlight arrived on scene. It was determined that he should be transported because paramedics at the scene weren’t sure what type of head or neck injury he may have sustained. No other information about either child was available at press time.

and air conditioning unit during the summer. The main maintenance room, which includes chillers, recently was taken off line. Gibson said that cooling will be provided by air handlers and temporary coolers and, if needed, money has been allocated in the budget for a temporary chiller. “We’re monitoring that closely,” Gibson said. The need for cooling played a major role in deciding the school calendar for this year and next. District leaders plan to miss the extreme heat of summer by putting the last day of school on May 31. Students will return Sept. 4. The Willowbrook Environmental Education Center has been renovated as well. Work at the Willowbrook has been completed except for paving and waterline work that will be done this summer. The center got new HVAC and electrical systems as well as lighting and sprinklers with a full technology upgrade. The

main campus will get the technology upgrade also. This upgrade includes more fiber optics and a full server replacement. The district also will change to a voice-over IP phone system during the summer. Outside of the school the grounds also hve been renovated, with upgrades to sidewalks, parking lots and landscaping. The construction project has brought real-life situations to the classroom for many students. Tours of various sites have been given by programs. Also, Gibson said there are one or two students who are serving as apprentices and many former students are now working on the project. “It makes it real world for them,” Gibson said. The former teacher shared that he came across a former student now working on the project in the hall the other day. “It kind of makes it full circle to come back and work where he learned. It’s been neat to see,” Gibson said.

ferent domestic violence offense that is unrelated to the victim.” The mother of the child was at work at the time and Jamison declined to list the number of people who were inside the home at the time of the crime. Paramedics and police rushed to the scene at 10:56 p.m. following a 9-11 call placed by Gauldin, who claimed he was babysitting the victim and at least one other child, according to that emergency call, which was obtained by Ohio Community Media. In an audio file of that 9-1-1 call, an emergency dispatcher walks the suspect through the process of

performing CPR several times before medics and authorities arrived at the home. “She fell down the stairs and I need help,” said the man police took into custody. “Her heart is not beating … She is not breathing.” While performing CPR, the suspect can be heard becoming physically ill several times as an unidentified child in the background can be heard crying, “I’m scared!” The child was taken to Upper Valley Medical Center before being flown by CareFlight to Children’s in Dayton, where she remained Friday night.

ONLINE POLL

(WWW.TROYDAILYNEWS.COM)

Question: If the election were today, would you vote for Barack Obama or Mitt Romney?

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

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

PERSPECTIVE

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” — First Amendment, U.S. Constitution

ANALYSIS

Obama’s incumbency vs. Romney’s hurdles WASHINGTON (AP) — Reality smacked Mitt Romney in the face twice in a 24-hour span. President Barack Obama used the power of the presidency to ring the general election’s opening bell, declaring this week in no uncertain terms that he and his mammoth organization are ready to take on Romney whether the presumptive GOP nominee is ready or not. And despite what he may say, Romney is not. The former Massachusetts governor, who won three more primaries Tuesday and is on track to claim his party’s presidential nomination in June if not before, is facing a challenge of historic proportions. Just one Republican Ronald Reagan has defeated a Democratic incumbent president in the last century. And Romney faces an incumbent with five times more staff, 10 times more money, and the world’s greatest bully pulpit. Using that platform Tuesday, the president criticized Romney by name, telling news executives at the annual meeting of The Associated Press that his likely general election opponent supported a “radical” Republican budget plan he characterized as “thinly veiled social Darwinism.” He accused Republican leaders of becoming so extreme that even Reagan, one of the party’s most cherished heroes, would not win a GOP primary today. The president’s critique came just one day after his campaign launched a TV ad in six general election battleground states that suggested that Romney stood with “Big Oil.” And it all comes amid a Democratic effort to paint Romney as part of a Republican Party that Obama’s party is casting as too conservative for the country. Romney hit back after he won primaries in Wisconsin, Washington, D.C., and Maryland, telling cheering supporters in Milwaukee that the president has become “a little out of touch” after “years of flying around on Air Force One, surrounded by an adoring staff of true believers telling you that you’re great and you’re doing a great job.” Added Romney, “You know, out-of-touch liberals like Barack Obama say they want a strong economy, but in everything they do, they show they don’t like business very much.” With that, the contours of the general election were set and the attack lines unveiled. Each candidate cast the other as too extreme for the center of the country speaking directly to the independents who play a critical role in general elections because they determine who wins close races. The number of independent voters in America has swelled. That means they are a top target for both candidates in what Republican and Democratic operatives alike anticipate will be a close election for reasons that include the country’s increasingly polarized nature. As the incumbent, Obama has a built-in advantage and a huge head start. He has spent months wooing the center of the electorate even as he worked to fire up his Democratic base. Romney has a ton of ground to make up. And, even though he’s been eager to shift his campaign to focus on fundraising, building and advertising for the general election, he doesn’t have the luxury of doing that in earnest just yet. His stubborn Republican opponents, inspired by anti-Romney skepticism from the right flank of the party, aren’t letting him. And that means Romney will continue for a while at least to be at least marginally distracted by an intra-party contest whose outcome has never really been in question.

LETTERS The Oregonian, Portland, on an online consumer privacy bill of rights: As politicians hunker down for a long, bipolar year producing little, citizen-consumers get no vacation from the need to protect their privacy online. Global Payments, which processes transactions for Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express, revealed that hackers had stolen 1.5 million credit card numbers. The company acknowledged the breach at least two weeks after it happened. Across the pond, British citizens find their calls, texts,

emails, web searches and other presumably private transactions in the sights of the government headed by Prime Minister David Cameron. Cameron has said it is “vital” for his government to be able to monitor such behavior to stop serious crime and terrorism. While many cases of the sharing of individual data occur with the consent of people who “opt in,” others demonstrate the persistent erosion of rights and privileges for individuals who don’t control their personal information. The U.S. Congress, not sur-

prisingly, is of two minds about all this. Elected officials on both sides of the aisle support legislation addressing cybersecurity and mandating prompt notification of consumers involved in data breaches … there is much to like about the idea of such a bill, which would grant consumers the right to understand and control the use of their personal information by companies with access to it. … In an election year, an online consumer privacy bill isn’t likely to gain traction. But the threats to individual privacy online are rising.

DOONESBURY

The 27 things I wish I’d learned before turning 27 Well friends, today marks a very important event in all of our lives. On April 14, 1985, at exactly 6:09 a.m. (or something like that, it was early and probably the last time I’d ever be that alert that early in the morning) I was born. With 27 years under my belt, I can’t help but look back over the years and both laugh and scoff at some of the things I’ve had to learn, refused to learn and am still trying to learn. So while we’re celebrating 27 years of me still being alive, I’d like to offer 27 things I wish I had learned before turning 27. For starters, it’s OK to not know what I want to be when I grow up — yet. The key is to never stop trying to figure it out. Find your passion and never, ever stop doing it. Make big plans, even if you’re not going to follow through with them and go to Canada with your best friends at least once. Unfortunately, some girls will never stop being girls. It doesn’t matter if we’re 15 or 50; some women will forever live in high school (complete with their drinking binges, scandalous

Amanda Stewart Troy Daily News Columnist clothing and boyfriend-stealing ways). Learn your lesson and be done with them. People like that will only bring you down. Everyone will let you down. People you love, will disappoint you and you will disappoint them. This is OK. Learn when to forgive and when to forget. Learn when to stay and know when to walk away. Tequila will never, ever, ever, ever, result in anything good. Never. Ever. If a guy likes you, he will call, because he won’t be able to stand not calling you. Taking shots of 151 on your birthday with your roommate might make you feel cool when you’re doing it, but you will feel

anything but cool the morning after. People will surprise you. Let them, they could be the best thing to happen to your life. No one will ever love me more than my parents. I will never, ever love anyone more than my daughter (and any subsequent children), except for maybe my parents. Some people aren’t meant to be in your life forever. Love hard, enjoy every waking minute and when they leave, be thankful for their footprint. Always tell someone if you love them. Even if it’s not reciprocated, even if it’s just puppy love, even if it’s the completely wrong person, you tell them. Always. Throw life’s rules out the window. Marry your one-night stand, fall in love after three weeks and get hitched in Vegas. Or don’t. The point is to make your own rules, not follow what you think you’re supposed to do. Love your best friends, all of them. It's OK to have different ones; you need them all for different things. My best mom friends understand me in a way

my best college friends cannot; and my college friends remind me of the me I used to be and love the me I am now. For this, I am eternally grateful. Go to Oregon at least once in your life. Believe me, it’s worth the cost of plane tickets Define your own standards of beauty and quit feeling bad about size 12 jeans. You’re beautiful. Watch less television, cook more and eat your veggies. And ice berg lettuce does not count as a salad. It’s water in leaf form. Write more letters and always send thank you cards. People appreciate the little things. And lastly, wear really tall high heels if you want to (even if you’re already tall), get your septum pierced (even if you’re 27 and a mom), dye your hair green (even if you’re 29 and a mom) and go to punk rock concerts when you’re 39. Or don’t. Just be you and own every bit of it.

Kimpel enters guilty plea Pleads to single charge, other Shelby County charges dismissed BY KATHY LEESE Ohio Community Media Suspended Shelby County Sheriff Dean Kimpel entered a guilty plea to a single felony charge in Shelby County Common Pleas Court Friday and shortly thereafter a judge in Auglaize County denied a motion to dismiss a sexual battery charge against him or suppress testimony in that case. Kimpel pleaded guilty to a single charge of unauthorized use of a computer or a telecommunications device, amended from the previous charge of unauthorized use of a government computer. Four other felony counts in the Shelby County case were dismissed. Kimpel appeared before Miami County Judge Robert Lindeman, appointed as judge in the Shelby County case after Judge James Stevenson recused himself. Kimpel was indicted by a Shelby County grand jury Sept. 29 on five counts of unauthorized use of the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway (OHLEG) law enforcement computer system after he allegedly looked up background on several individuals for personal reasons not related to his duties as sheriff. OHLEG is a secure, webbased tool administered by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office and allows law enforcement to obtain information regarding criminals and crime related matters. Kimpel was alleged to have looked up information on former Shelby County Sheriff’s Deputy Jodi Van Fossen, who had alleged that Kimpel sexually assaulted her in her home in Auglaize County; Shelby County Sheriff’s Deputy Cami Frey; Dawn Robinson of Fairborn, whom Kimpel allegedly looked up from his home computer; and Angela Gordon, formerly of Sidney and now reportedly living in Prestonsburg, Ky., whom Kimpel looked up on two occasions. Other than Robinson, Kimpel looked up the other women from his Sheriff’s Office computer. The charge is a felony in the fifth degree. On Friday, Lindeman made sure Kimpel understood the agreement and the possible

Among conditions of his plea, Kimpel faces six months to one year in jail and a $2,500 fine when sentenced June 8, and will officially resign as sheriff that day and never be able to work in law enforcement again in his lifetime. As a convicted felon, he will not be allowed to possess a weapon and has been ordered to have no contact with Van Fossen. A presentence investigation will be conducted prior to sentencing. Following the hearing in Shelby County early Friday afternoon, another hearing was held in Auglaize County Common Pleas Court in Wapakoneta regarding a motion to dismiss the case against Kimpel in that county and suppress testimony. Although attorneys for both sides thought they had reached an agreement in the case, Judge Frederick Pepple had some things to say and ultimately refused to either dismiss the case or suppress testimony. Pepple met behind closed doors for almost an hour with attorneys for both sides, discussing the importance of rendering a decision on the Garrity issue in the case. (A so-called Garrity warning is given to law enforcement officers and public officials during the course of an investigation.) After moving to open court, Pepple sternly told those present that the internal affairs investigation involving Kimpel and issues involving sexual harass-

ment and a hostile work environment at the Sheriff’s Office were conducted by two Licking County deputies who “were not appointed by the prosecutor’s office in Shelby County (and) were not deputized” by Kimpel. He noted the deputies had no authority to grant immunity and that Kimpel was not granted immunity. He observed that Kimpel was an elected official and that the Garrity warning “does not apply to an elected official (and) it certainly does not apply to an elected official who hand-picks the officials who will investigate.” Pepple described Kimpel’s actions as “against public policy,” explaining that Kimpel could have at any time said to the investigating deputies, ‘sorry guys, you’re out of here.’” “It is hardly an independent investigation when the target of the investigation (Kimpel) asks the Buckeye State Sheriff’s Association to investigate himself,” Pepple said. “Public policy does not allow this.” Stating he wanted it on the record, Pepple said, “It is important that (in this) state, officials know that Garrity rights do not apply to them,” referring to elected officials. “It doesn’t work that way. … Garrity does not apply to the sheriff.” Kimpel appeared redfaced during Pepple’s comments. “The motion to suppress is denied. The motion to dis-

miss is denied,” Pepple stated. He then held up a file and asked the attorneys if they realized that if he was to dismiss the case, that Kimpel could immediately return to office as Shelby County Sheriff with full powers. Citing the law on the matter, Pepple said the case should be continued until sentencing was completed in Shelby County and then a ruling could be made in the Auglaize County case. Special Prosecutor Gary Nasal of Miami County told Pepple that “the parties have agreed that this case would be dismissed with prejudice.” Nasal said his office had held “extensive conversations with the (alleged) victim” about the matter. Nasal said the agreement was “pursuant to plea negotiations in Shelby County.” The case was continued until June 8, at which time the judge will rule on the case. Zachary Maisch, an attorney for Kimpel, declined to comment on either court case Friday because the Auglaize County case has been continued. Nasal said, “I’ll reserve my comment until after sentencing in Shelby (County).” Van Fossen had accused then-Sheriff Kimpel of sexually assaulting her at her home in Auglaize County in 2010. In December, a lawsuit was settled involving Kimpel and former Shelby County Sheriff’s Capt. Michael Eilerman, who were both sued by Van Fossen regarding alleged sexual harassment of her while she worked at the Sheriff’s Office. It was settled for $105,000. Last fall, Shelby County Republican officials publicly called for Kimpel to step down, which he refused to do. Following Kimpel’s indictments, Nasal called for the Ohio Supreme Court to suspend him from office, the first time such action was taken in the state of Ohio. Kimpel stepped aside, voluntarily accepting the suspension and the Ohio Supreme Court then ruled in favor of Nasal’s request. Former Shelby County Sheriff John Lenhart of Jackson Center was then named to serve as acting sheriff and is running for the post in the November election. During his suspension, Kimpel has continued to receive his full Sheriff’s Office salary, which will end immediately after he is sentenced in June.

How to run a megachurch? With help Big staff indispensable in creating intimate atmosphere NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — On just about any Sunday, as many as 10,000 people may fill the pews of The Potter’s House, Bishop T.D. Jakes’ Dallas-area megachurch. Believers say he has an uncanny way of connecting with his audience anyway. “It doesn’t matter about the size,” says Faith Johnson, a 13year member. “It’s almost like nobody else is in that church, but me.” It takes some help for leaders of the largest megachurches and national ministries to make believers reject the idea that a smaller church is more intimate and personable. A big staff of associate pastors and elders is indispensable. Steve Doubet is an elder at Jakes’ church. He says Jakes and his wife, Serita, are down-toearth people who create a friendly, intimate atmosphere that “rolls down through their associate pastors and right on into the pews.” “I love this place because it feels intimate and it feels small,” Doubet said. “Week … to week, whoever you’re sitting next to, they’re open. You can attend churches that are tiny, and are so uptight, you don’t want to go back.” Jakes is undoubtedly busy. Besides ministering at Potter’s House and satellites nationwide, he speaks abroad, is a bestselling author, and also produces movies. His film “Woman Thou Art Loosed: On the 7th Day” debuts this month, and “Sparkle,” the last movie featuring the late Whitney Houston, is scheduled for release in August. Jakes and other mega-pastors credit their ability to stay in touch with their members to strong church leadership. For instance, Jakes has 12 associate pastors and numerous elders. Doubet said the congregation

Some believers say he has an uncanny way of connecting with his audience anyway. still receives a strong message on the rare occasion that Jakes can’t preach. “It’s important for him to have heavy hitters to be able to come in after him,” Doubet said. “Because after you’ve attended the church there for a while, you have an expectation that you’re going to get really well fed. His associate pastors all can hit it over the fence.” Despite his hectic schedule, Jakes says he takes time to personally oversee funerals and even makes hospital visits. “I enjoy being there for the family in times of crisis to try to stir them and encourage them in a personal one-on-one way,” he said. “I take very seriously my responsibility to feed the flock. We … provide every service that we did when we were still small churches.” Pastor and gospel singer Marvin Winans has a congregation of about 4,500 at Perfecting Church in Detroit. Winans, who gave Whitney Houston’s eulogy in February and preached at a megachurch in Nashville last

month, said part of having an effective ministry is having dependable disciples. “It cannot be a one-man show in order for it to properly work,” he said. “The first thing Jesus did was get some disciples … for the work of the ministry to carry on.” Pastor Matthew Cork knew he’d have to rely more on his leadership when his nearly 6,000-member Friends Church in Yorba Linda, Calif., committed to building 200 schools in India over the next 10 years for dalit children, who are part of the country’s lowest caste. He’s also promoting a book and movie about the number of dalits who end up being trafficked as sex slaves. “We have a teaching team, so I’m not teaching every week, which gives me freedom to do some of the other things that I do,” said Cork, who speaks about twice a month at his church. “It’s worked great for me and my schedule.” James Hudnut-Beumler, dean of Vanderbilt University Divinity

School in Nashville, said a church’s pastoral staff is one factor considered by people deciding whether to attend a megachurch or a much smaller congregation. “Do they want a great spiritual leader who is a charismatic preacher who can move lots of people, or do they want someone they can talk to about the fact they’ve lost a job, or a relative?” he said. Another issue, he said, is the amount of involvement. A person who wants to just observe the service may not be able to blend in unnoticed at a small church like they would at one with hundreds of people. “They’re going to notice you and ask you to lead Sunday school, or usher,” HudnutBeumler said. “There is virtually no dropping in and just sort of observing church. With a megachurch, you can stand on the periphery and have great service.” Angela Nevertheless, Bingham says she enjoys the intimate atmosphere at Walnut Grove Missionary Baptist

Church in Murfreesboro, Tenn., which has a membership of about 230. “You’re not just a number,” said the 49-year-old school teacher, who has attended the church most of her life. “They know you by name, by face.” In Chesapeake, Va., Martez Layton acknowledges it’s possible to “feel like a number” at the 7,500-member Mount Lebanon Baptist Church that he and his wife, Woodrina, attend. But he said they don’t because they’re both active. The couple, who have been married for over 20 years, heads a marriage counseling ministry. “It’s being involved in the activities in the church is where you begin to build your relationship,” he said. “It’s not like … we can have a dinner after church and everybody get to know each other.” Like many megachurches, Layton said he enjoys having abundant resources. For instance, he said the church fed 400 families for Thanksgiving. “I know at a small church there’s no way you can feed 400 families,” he said. But others say just because a church doesn’t have “mega” in front of it, doesn’t mean it’s ineffective. Richard W. Sibert is pastor of Walnut Grove Missionary Baptist Church. Despite the size of the church, he said it’s about the business of caring for its members, and the community. “Smaller churches are utilizing their talents and abilities on a smaller scale,” he said. “Some of them are actually more together than the megachurches.” St. Mark’s United At Methodist Church in Laurel, Md., where Robbie Morganfield is pastor, only about 150 people regularly attend the service. But Morganfield still has a vision to build a community center adjacent to the church and believes it can be done if his members commit themselves. “I think you can be a small church and have a mega-ministry,” he said. “It’s about vision. A hundred people … can do a lot of stuff if they’re really committed.”

Violins tell story of Holocaust CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — When a musician plays a violin long enough, the instrument is imprinted with its owner’s way of making sound. If someone else picks it up, they learn to play it in a way that honors its history. So when David Russell places a violin played in the World War II concentration camp of Auschwitz under his chin, he lets the violin tell him how to do it. The Auschwitz violin and 17 others with connections to the vanished world of Europe’s prewar Jewish communities are part of a new exhibit and performance series called “Violins of Hope.” “When the violinists in ‘Violins of Hope’ play these instruments and they find how to make these instruments sound their best, they’re actually bringing back patterns from the for-

mer performers who used to play them,” said Russell, a music professor at the University of North Carolina Charlotte. “So we get an imprint, as it were, of that person. They’re with us, they’re in the concert.” “Violins of Hope” opens Monday at UNC Charlotte Center City and will remain on view through April 20 and again April 22-24. The program includes related exhibits at other museums and several performances using the violins. The project’s final concert will take place April 21 at the Charlotte Symphony, with noted violinist Shlomo Mintz taking part. The violins were first played publicly in 2008 in Jerusalem and then exhibited and played in 2010 in Sion, Switzerland. They’ve never before been exhibited or played together in North

America. Some violins were played at concentration camps; others were used to play klezmer music, a lively, soulful Jewish folk music popular in prewar Eastern Europe. The Holocaust all but extinguished the klezmer tradition but it’s had a revival in the U.S. in recent decades. All the violins were restored by master violin maker Amnon Weinstein, 73, who says the violins provide a way to teach young people about the Holocaust, in which about 6 million Jews and 5 million others were murdered by Nazis. “It’s very important. I hope people will understand,” said Weinstein, who believes 400 of his family members died in the Holocaust “You cannot bring in dead people. But the violins speak for the people.”

Hybrid, electric cars see record sales DETROIT (AP) — Americans are buying record numbers of hybrid and electric cars as gas prices climb and new models arrive in showrooms, giving the vehicles their greatest share yet of the U.S. auto market. Consumers bought a record 52,000 gas-electric hybrids and all-electric cars in March, up from 34,000 during the same month last year. The two categories combined made up 3.64 percent of total U.S. sales, their highest monthly market share ever, according to Ward’s AutoInfoBank. The previous high was 3.56 percent in July 2009, when the Cash for Clunkers program encouraged people to trade in old gas guzzlers for more fuelefficient cars. And while their share of the market remains small, it’s a big leap from the start of the year, when hybrids and electrics made up 2.38 percent of new car sales. Buyers were drawn by new models like the Toyota Prius C

A Nissan Leaf tops off its battery in Central Point, Ore., March 16 at one of the charging stations along Interstate 5. U.S. car buyers bought a record number of hybrid and electric cars in March 2012, as new models went on sale and gas prices neared $4 per gallon. subcompact, the Prius V wagon and Camry hybrid. Gas prices near or above $4 per gallon added to the cars’ attraction. David Martin, a Denver soft-

ware engineer, estimates he’ll save at least $150 per month on gas with his new Chevrolet Volt compared with the 2010 Acura TSX he replaced. Martin expects gas

prices to stay high, a factor that heavily influenced his purchase. “As the cost of gasoline rises, my future savings can only increase,” he said. Stronger sales of the Volt and the Nissan Leaf were a positive sign for electric car makers. The two vehicles have struggled to gain acceptance from buyers worried about how far they can drive on a battery charge. Another concern: Volt maker General Motors Co. had to change the car’s charging system because its batteries caught fire after government crash tests. GM sold just 7,671 Volts last year, below its goal of 10,000. But in March, it set a new monthly record of 2,289 for the Volt, an electric car with a small backup gas engine. Sales of the all-electric Leaf nearly doubled to 579. The Volt got a boost from California’s decision to make it eligible for high-occupancy vehicle lanes. Starting March 1, buyers with a low-emissions Volt

could use the HOV lane and get a $1,500 state tax credit on top of a $7,500 federal tax credit. GM said a quarter of the Volts it sold last month were sold in California. Edward Ang, of Cupertino, Calif., has been planning to buy a Volt since GM first announced it would make the car, but he waited until it qualified for the HOV sticker. He bought a Volt last month and now makes his 10mile commute without using any gas. He used to drive a 2004 Prius. “I made a promise to myself that if they bring it to market, I will get one,” said Ang, an engineering manager. Gas prices helped sales. The nationwide average for a gallon of gas jumped 19 cents in March, from $3.73 to $3.92, and it crossed the $4 mark in California even earlier. The $4 mark was a significant psychological milestone for some buyers, said Paul Lacy, who forecasts sales trends for consulting firm IHS Automotive.

Reports point to a healing housing market NEW YORK (AP) — Earnings reports from two major banks Friday painted a picture of a healing housing market, with more Americans taking out mortgages, paying them on time and taking advantage of low interest rates to refinance. At JPMorgan Chase, the biggest bank in the United States, income from new home loans set a record from January through March. The bank issued 6 percent more mortgages than a year ago and got 33 percent more applications. Wells Fargo, which issues the most home loans, booked the most mortgage fees since 2009. It issued 54 percent more mortgages than a year ago and took 84 percent more applications. A healthier housing market is welcome news. Housing has been the biggest drag on the economic recovery, while other segments, such as manufacturing and consumer spending, have held up or grown. Home prices are still falling, though more slowly than in the past several years, and more than half a million American homes were in the foreclosure process at the end of March, according to RealtyTrac. Still, stronger mortgage business helped JPMorgan and Wells Fargo beat Wall Street expectations for first-quarter earnings. JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon boasted that the bank had originated 200,000 mortgages in the quarter.

Two key factors helped: The average rate on the 30-year fixed mortgage dropped to 3.87 percent in February, the lowest since long-term mortgages began in the 1950s. Rates have stayed low: This week, the average is 3.88 percent. Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf said the housing market is close to a “tipping point” at which it can take off. “When you have the dynamics of higher rental rates and lower home values at great financing rates, there’s a point in time where the market’s going to clear and you’re going to see improvement,” Stumpf said. Some markets, he said, Texas, Northern like California and Washington, D.C., have already reached that point. Job growth in January and February was some of the strongest since the Great Recession, and the unemployment rate has fallen to 8.2 percent, the lowest since January 2009. At Wells Fargo, 15 percent of mortgage applications came from the government’s Home Affordable Refinance Program, which helps Americans who owe more than their property is worth get more affordable loans. “It is great to see people who have made their payments every month even though they are underwater, or hugely underwater,” Stumpf said. “And now to be able to help them put a few hundred dollars extra in their pocket every month, that is terrific.”

Can stocks extend first-quarter streak? NEW YORK (AP) — The zigzag in the stock market this past week may leave you wondering queasily: Will this quarter build on the blockbuster gains from the start of the year or wipe them away? History suggests the winning streak will continue. Over the past 30 years, strong quarters like the one that ended in March have tended to be followed by more gains. Smaller gains, usually, but gains nonetheless. From 1982, the start of what some consider the modern era of investing, through the end of last year, there were 17 quarters in which the Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 10 percent or more. Only twice were those gains followed by a losing quarter. In both cases, the loss was small: 1.1 percent and 0.1 percent. The other 15 times, the average gain in the subsequent quarter was 6.6 percent.

The two losses both came when the economy was just emerging from recession, periods that are ripe for market bumpiness as investors try to gauge whether the worst really is behind them. This time around, the recession has been over for almost three years. And though the market has had quarterly swings, it has moved mostly higher. Investors are betting that a steady, if unimpressive, expansion is under way. The S&P gained 12 percent from January through March, its best first quarter since 1998. That followed a gain of 11 percent in the quarter before, from October through December. And the record is also promising when the market racks up two consecutive double-digit quarters. It’s happened three other times since 1982. Each time was followed by a third quarterly gain averaging about 5 percent.

Readers weigh in on ‘hot’ issue from N.Y.

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

Dear Annie: I read the letter from "Upstate New York Where It's 20 Degrees Outside." He said his wife has hot flashes and wants to set the thermostat down, but he likes it at 74 so he can run around in his underwear. She's ready to move out. He thinks she's being selfish. We also are from upstate New York, and I think he is the selfish one. He can dress in layers, put on a sweater or buy himself a parka. On the other hand, there is just so much that she can take off. Yes, he may pay the bills, but I wonder who cooks, cleans, does the laundry, shops and cares for the children. — Long-Time Reader, First-Time Responder Dear Long-Time Reader: That letter made a lot of readers "hot" under the collar. Read on for more: From Wisconsin: Tell him to turn the heat down and put the money he saves toward those mortgage payments he is so smug about. Better yet, donate it to a charity that helps cover energy bills for those who aren't able to pay them. Boston: I have never in my long life said this to anyone, but what a jerk! My husband and I have had this same problem. Our thermostat is set at 69. He wears sweats and warm slippers, and I wear T-shirts. This is not about who pays the mortgage, but about your attitude toward your partner. Indiana: No one needs to suffer from hot flashes. As soon as my doctor prescribed an antidepressant, it was like someone flipped a switch. Chicago: As a woman in her eighth year of hot flashes and night sweats, I have learned some coping skills. Many women cannot take hormone replacement. I have found some relief in yoga, breathing techniques and mindful meditation. I suggest the wife find a room she can call her own and keep it at a temperature that is comfortable for her. This time is a natural progression in women's lives and should be embraced. I hope her journey is a short one. California: Thirty years ago, due to surgery, I had hot flashes. An acquaintance told me her obgyn recommended vitamin E. It worked! It took six weeks to kick in, but, oh, the relief! Georgia: I urge you to exercise extreme caution in recommending natural remedies for hot flashes. These treatments are unregulated and can contain a variety of harmful substances, and they don't have to have any of these on their labels. People should be very careful. For further information, contact the Centers for Disease Control toxicology division in Atlanta. Upstate New York: What an inconsiderate husband. It's his choice to wear nothing around the house, so he should be willing to suffer the consequences. We keep our house at 65 degrees. Sweaters and slippers are comfortable and healthier than 74 degrees. We sleep well and even better when I get the gas bill. Last time I checked, it was "our" house, not "my" house. California: I have had brief hot flashes since 2008. They only seem to last forever. I have a hand fan by my bed and recliner, and I carry a folding one in my purse. In the winter, I step outside for a few minutes. I take care of myself without inconveniencing anyone else, but I will be glad when they are over. Florida: I've been in that gentleman's shoes for a number of years and had the same complaint. Six months ago, however, I suffered male hot flashes as a result of a hormone imbalance. Having been on the other side, I can tell him that it is a very unpleasant experience and one over which you have no control.

SUDOKU PUZZLE

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

HINTS FROM HELOISE

It’s time to get rid of that bath mat grime Dear Readers: How to get rid of that slimy, black grime on a rubber bath mat? It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3! Fill your washing machine with hot water and a glug or two of bleach, and toss in the mat. You might want to add a couple of bleach-safe towels for scrubbing action. Run the washer through its normal cycles, and let the mat air-dry. To help prevent mildew from reappearing, be sure to pull up the mat after every shower and let it dry by hanging it over a towel rod, or attach it to the wall. Want to clean your feather duster? Head outside with a heavyweight bag, the duster and a box of cornstarch. Pop the duster

Hints from Heloise Columnist and cornstarch into the bag, hold the bag closed tightly and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds. You can find these and lots more money-saving hints in my Heloise’s Homemade Cleaning Solutions pamphlet. To order, send $5 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (65 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Cleaning Solutions, P.O.

Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. FYI: Sprinkle a bit of cornstarch in socks to keep feet comfortable and dry, or in smelly tennies or boots. — Heloise PET PAL Dear Readers: Paul in Hammond, Ind., sent a picture of his rat terrier, Hannah, surrounded by her dozens of bear friends. You have to look closely to see Hannah! If you’d like to try to find her and our other Pet Pals, visit www.Heloise.com and click on “Pets.” — Heloise EASY READ Hello, Heloise: I met you last year in Houston at the Cooking Show. I had the hint for watering plants with ice cubes. I really

enjoyed the get-together and meeting you — it was the highlight of my year! Here is my latest hint: I can’t see the level markings on the inside of the caps of laundrydetergent bottles. Before I use the tops, I mark the inside lines using black permanent marker on the light-colored caps, and white liquid paper on the dark-colored caps. Makes it so much easier to put the right amount in each load. — Marlene M., Pearland, Texas Hi, Marlene, it’s nice to hear from you. We did have fun during our girls’ meet and greet with you and the other winners who had submitted hints! — Heloise

HOROSCOPE Saturday, April 14, 2012 Luck could come your way in the year ahead, in some most unusual ways and at some very odd times. At the moment you’re ready to throw in the towel, you’ll discover the cavalry arriving just in time. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — When making some big plans, if you inconvenience another without his or her knowledge, you will have a lot of unpleasant explaining to do. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Using excessive flattery to win someone to your side could backfire. You may think that praising the person will do the trick, but he or she will only feel manipulated. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You could be extremely wasteful with your money when trying to impress another, and sadly it isn’t likely to work. The party in question isn’t interested in showmanship, just friendship. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — When participating in a social activity that has some competitive elements, don’t allow winning to become unduly important. It’ll only make you look bad. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Be sure to look at your problems realistically and not through an optimistic lens. If you try to kid yourself, you could do more harm than good in the long run. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Business and pleasure aren’t likely to make a congenial mix, especially if you try to make a pitch to someone who is only interested in having a good time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — In order for any partnership to be successful, both parties must possess a strong sense of purpose. Dealing with a split decision is only likely to spell failure. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Being a bit gullible at present, there is a strong possibility that you could believe everything you hear. Don’t allow someone’s exaggerations to cause you to feel inferior. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Lady Luck is likely to treat you in a fickle manner, so it isn’t very smart to depend on her too heavily, especially where your gambling urges are concerned. Play it safe. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Because of your inclination to expect more from others or situations than you should, you’ll have only yourself to blame if you end up being severely disappointed. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — A behavior pattern that comfortably fits a close friend is not necessarily tailored to suit your requirements, so don’t copy it. Live within your own comfort zone. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You’re likely to be rather thrifty when it comes to insignificant expenditures, while at the same time you’ll have strong urges to blow your entire budget on something meaningless.

U.S. overture to North Korea fizzles with rocket launch WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s hopes of using diplomacy to defuse an unpredictable, nuclear-equipped North Korea fizzled with that country’s failed rocket launch, leaving Obama with little to show for his overture to the new North Korean leader. The launch Friday, in defiance of U.S. and international demands, scuttled a once-promising deal to exchange much-needed U.S. food aid for nuclear concessions and the prospect of broader disarmament talks. Obama had insisted that “bad behavior” would not be rewarded and now has few options to restart negotiations without appearing to let North Korea off the hook. Obama told an interviewer Friday that the launch would only serve to further cut off North Korea from the rest of the world and shows the regime is willing to waste money on “rockets that don’t work at a time when their people are starving.” He said in the interview with the Spanish-language TV network “Telemundo” that the U.S. would work with other nations to further isolate North Korea and “keep the pressure on them,” although he was not specific. Almost immediately after the launch, Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney accused Obama of trying to appease North Korea by dangling a food aid deal “that proved to be as nave as it was short-lived.” The White House responded tartly. Deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes was

asked whether the launch represented a failure of administration efforts to engage the North’s new rulers. “Absolutely not,” he said. “What this administration has done is broken the cycle of rewarding provocative actions by the North Koreans that we’ve seen in the past.” North Korea’s attempt to launch a rocket with what the North Koreans said was a satellite attached ended in failure when the rocket disintegrated over the Yellow Sea. Western nations have said the launch was a cover for the testing of a longrange missile. The Obama administration is trying to shift its foreign policy emphasis toward Asia, home of most of the world’s fastest-developing economies and markets, and had hoped that even modest improvements in relations with North Korea could help. The impoverished, heavily militarized autocracy is a looming threat to U.S. allies like South Korea and Japan. It is an irritant in U.S. relations with regional powerhouse China. A sudden leadership change in North Korea seemed to improve the odds of better footing with the regime, one of the pariah nations former President George W. Bush placed on his “axis of evil” 10 years ago. The food deal reached Feb. 29 was supposed to open the way for new talks that could eventually broker an end to North Korea’s nuclear weapons program and the proliferation risk it poses.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Saturday, April 14, the 105th day of 2012. There are 261 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight: On April 14, 1912, the British liner RMS Titanic collided with an iceberg in the North Atlantic at 11:40 p.m. ship’s time and began sinking. (The ship went under two hours and 40 minutes later with the loss of 1,514 lives.) On this date: In 1828, the first edition of Noah Webster’s “American

Dictionary of the English Language” was published. In 1865, President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth during a performance of “Our American Cousin” at Ford’s Theater in W ashington. In 1902, James Cash Penney opened his first store, The Golden Rule, in Kemmerer, Wyo. In 1939, the John Steinbeck novel “The Grapes of Wrath” was first published by Viking Press.

In 1981, the first test flight of America’s first operational space shuttle, the Columbia, ended successfully with a landing at Edwards Air Force Base in California. One year ago: Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi rolled defiantly through the streets of Tripoli the same day NATO air strikes shook the city. Today’s Birthdays: Country singer Loretta Lynn is 80. Retired MLB All-Star Pete Rose is 71. Actor Adrien Brody is 39.

105 Announcements

CAUTION Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable.

Hall Nominees Wendell Scott and Rusty Wallace are among the five new nominees announced Wednesday for the 2013 NASCAR Hall of Fame class. Also added to the nominee list was Anne Bledsoe France, wife of NASCAR founder Bill France Sr. She was NASCAR’s first treasurer and secretary, and is the first woman nominated for the Hall of Fame. Engine builder Ray Fox also was nominated, as was sponsor executive Ralph Seagraves. Scott won the 1963 race at Speedway Park in Jacksonville, Fla., for the only victory of his 495 career starts. A former taxi driver, he became the first black driver to become a full-time competitor in NASCAR. He ranked 33rd on the list for career starts, and accumulated 20 top-five finishes and 147 top-10 finishes. Wallace was the 1989 Cup champion, and is eighth on the career list with 55 victories.

She said, He Said Carl Edwards disagrees with assertions by Olympic swimmer Amanda Beard that the NASCAR driver was controlling and jealous during their yearlong relationship. Edwards said Friday he was puzzled by what his former girlfriend wrote about their time together. Beard’s 256-page memoir was released last week. She writes that she was now finally at peace as a happily married and proud mom after years of struggling with depression, bulimia, drug abuse and toxic relationships. About a dozen pages are devoted to her time with Edwards from 2005 to 2006. Asked if he’d dispute how Beard described him, Edwards responded, “Absolutely.”

This Feb. 22, 2004 file photo, shows a sparse crowd during the Subway 400 NASCAR Nextel Cup race at North Carolina Speedway near Rockingham, N.C. NASCAR makes its official return to Rockingham on Sunday when the Trucks Series races around the beloved mile-long flat oval. It will be the first NASCAR-sanctioned event since 2004, when a long-term realignment plan led NASCAR to abandon its grass-roots tracks in favor of building up bigger markets such as California, Chicago and Kansas City.

Return to The Rock NASCAR back at Rockingham with Truck series CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — There’s no way to figure out just how much Andy Hillenburg has put into Rockingham Speedway, the track he bought at auction for $4.4 million with no guarantee he’d ever return racing to “The Rock.” Between the money spent to open a dormant race track, the long hours required of a track operator and the lessons learned in understanding how to promote races, Hillenburg has made an unbelievable commitment to the Rockingham, N.C., racetrack. “All I have,” he said when asked what he’s put into the track. “Everything I ever worked for I’ve put into this, because I believe in what we are doing.” NASCAR makes its official return to Rockingham on Sunday when the Trucks Series races around the beloved mile-long flat oval. It will be the first NASCAR-sanctioned event since 2004, when a long-term realignment plan led NASCAR to abandon its grass-roots tracks in favor of building up bigger markets such as California, Chicago and Kansas City. Track operator International Speedway Corp., the sister company to NASCAR, gave one of Rockingham’s race dates to California. The track eventually was sold to rival Speedway Motorsports Inc., which “transferred” the second race date to its Texas track. With

NASCAR no longer on the schedule, SMI shuttered the track and put it up for auction in 2007. Enter Hillenburg, who had done just about every job imaginable in racing. As a driver, Hillenburg won an ARCA championship, competed in the Indianapolis 500, made 29 starts spanning all three of NASCAR’s national divisions and finished a career-best third driving in the 1999 Nationwide Series race at Daytona for Joe Gibbs Racing. As a team owner, he’s fielded cars in ARCA and NASCAR’s Truck Series, and owns and operates the Fast Track High Performance Driving School. And, he’s been an actor and adviser in several racingthemed movies, including “Talladega Nights.” So with old North Carolina Speedway up for sale, Hillenburg jumped into the bidding and won. Then he went to work initially from his cell phone because, of course, there were no working phones at the track to bring racing back to The Rock. First came an ARCA race, in 2008, then smaller series began racing at the track. And because there were no NASCARsanctioned races at the track, Hillenburg was able to rent it out to teams as a test track. His racing school also uses the facility. But his eye was always on the big

prize. “I had hoped for it, but being in the sport my whole life, I knew it wasn’t something to take for granted as ‘Oh, we’ll get a NASCAR race,’” he said. “I knew what we needed to do, and I got us 90 percent there before we ever had a meeting with NASCAR. We couldn’t go to them until I felt like I had a handle on being able to promote races and could show NASCAR the track deserved a race.” The first official meeting was at Darlington last May, when Hillenburg brought the mayor of Rockingham, the city manager and two county commissioners with him. “I found out then what the other 10 percent was that we had to do to get a NASCAR race, and knowing when they like to finalize the schedule, my timetable was to have it all done at the end of August,” he said. The track still needed SAFER barriers, and there were updates required to the timing and scoring system. Once those were done, NASCAR was ready to give him a race date. “It was a heartbreaking loss when the decision was made to leave, but that’s now in the past and we are focused on the future,” Rockingham mayor Gene McLaurin said. “We never gave up hope that one day we would welcome NASCAR back home to Rockingham Speedway.”

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The Busch Brothers are adding a new dynamic to their relationship. When Kurt Busch gets in the car for Friday night’s NASCAR Nationwide race in Texas, where he ran in that series for the first time and won six years ago, it will be his debut driving for younger brother Kyle’s new stock car team. “It is owner-driver, but it is brother-brother, and it’s unique with me having the upper hand on age,” 33-yearold Kurt Busch said Thursday. “But I respect him for the guts that he has to jump into this endeavor, to be the owner.” After the first of about 17 Nationwide races driving for his brother, they will be competitors again Saturday night in the Sprint Cup race. It was at Texas last November when NASCAR barred 26-year-old Kyle Busch from driving for Joe Gibbs in the Cup and Nationwide races. That came after Busch, driving the truck he owned, deliberately wrecked championship contender Ron Hornaday Jr. during a caution in the race that started a tripleheader weekend. Since NASCAR’s last trip to the 1 1/2-mile highbanked track, Kurt Busch has changed Cup teams. He split with Penske Racing after six seasons in what was called a mutual parting of the ways and is with the new much smaller and lessfunded Phoenix Racing team. “Both teams that I’m with this year are very unique circumstances,” he said. “We’ll have chances at winning in the Nationwide car, we’re going to have to claw and scrap and fight real hard with the Cup car. But we’re going to have our opportunities to have fun every week.” After the Easter break, NASCAR resumes this weekend with the first scheduled night Cup race of the season, though not the first one. (Don’t forget that rain-postponed Daytona 500 that was run on a Monday night). Greg Biffle, who has seven consecutive top-10 finishes in Texas and won at the track in 2005, is the relaxed points leader. Biffle took advantage of the time off with a Bahamas vacation, chartering a big boat that he stayed on during the week.

Chevrolet changing engines before Long Beach race LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Chevrolet’s strong start in its return to IndyCar suffered a significant setback Thursday when the manufacturer decided to change the engines for all 11 of its teams before they open the weekend at Long Beach. The change means all 11 Chevrolet drivers will drop 10 spots on the starting grid before Sunday’s race under an IndyCar rule that prohibits engine changes before each one has completed 1,850 miles.

“This is certainly a decision that was not made lightly,” said Chris Berube, program manager for Chevrolet’s IndyCar effort. “We intently discussed the situation with our partners and our teams prior to determining that this was the best course of action to preserve the integrity of the racing in the IZOD IndyCar Series.” IndyCar has competing manufacturers for the first time since 2005, with Chevrolet and Lotus jumping into a series that

Honda had controlled exclusively the past seven seasons. Lotus is admittedly lagging behind the other two, so it’s been a manufacturers’ battle through the first two events between only Chevy and Honda. So far, Chevy is the decisive winner. Chevrolet has won both poles and both races so far this season, and leads the manufacturers’ race with 18 points to Honda’s 12. IndyCar had previously announced that Lotus driver Sebastien Bourdais

would be penalized 10 spots on the grid because his team changed his engine after the April 1 race at Barber. Oriol Servia, who changed his engine before the Barber race, also might need another new Lotus this weekend and also would be subjected to the penalty. The problem with the Chevrolet engines was discovered following Monday’s open test at Sonoma, where James Hinchliffe had an engine failure. Chevrolet changed his

engine, and IndyCar announced he’d be penalized the 10 grid spots. “This is obviously disappointing, but it is the same for all the Chevy teams and these things happen when you are in development programs,” Chevy owner Michael Andretti said. “Luckily the problem was caught during a test rather than in the middle of a race. It’s unfortunate, but we stand behind Chevy and whatever is needed to continue to set the standard.”

The more things change … Troy’s new coach not worried about divisional realignment BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor fong@tdnpublishing.com Scot Brewer is far less worried about Week 11 in 2013 and far more concerned with Week 1 in 2012. Thursday, the Ohio High School Athletic Association announced in 2013 it is adding a

TROY seventh tournament division in football. Barring any unforeseen changes, the move will drop Troy from Division I to Division II. Historically, Troy always has competed in the OHSAA’s largest division — this will be the first move to a smaller division in school history.

None of which is of concern to Brewer, Troy’s football coach. “All I’m concerned about right now is (Chaminade Julienne),” Brewer said of the Trojans’ first opponent in 2012. “That’s the only thing I’m thinking about. I guess it’s great for the sports forum guys on the Internet — it gives them something to talk about. But as a football coach,

Indians have big 1st, beat Royals Michael Brantley had one hit in 17 atbats during Cleveland’s season-opening homestand. One measly hit. He had two of ‘em in the first inning alone Friday. The Indians' anemic offense broke loose against Luke Hochevar and the Royals. Cleveland pounded out seven runs in the opening frame, and Asdrubal Cabrera tacked on a ninth-inning homer for good measure in an 8-3 victory that spoiled Kansas City's home opener. See Page 18.

Dragons Lair SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The Dayton Dragons rallied in the ninth to come away with a 6-4 win over South Bend on Friday. Juan Perez drove in the tying run, then scored the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth. The Dragons snapped their five-game losing streak with the win.

Tippecanoe’s CC Alvarez lays down a bunt Friday against Newton at the Strike Out Cancer Classic at Kyle Park in Tipp City.

Tipp too much Devils outslug Indians in 15-6 win BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor jbrown@tdnpublishing.com Two years ago, Newton won a state championship. Last season, Tippecanoe reached the state’s final four. Both teams accomplished those feats with strong pitching and solid defense. Friday night’s kickoff to the Strike Out Cancer Classic at Kyle Park in Tipp City featured a lot more of that third thing both teams are known for — hitting.

TIPP CITY The Red Devils and Indians combined for 33 hits, playing deep into the night after an 8 p.m. start, but Tippecanoe (8-3) was able to convert more of those into runs — especially in a six-run fourth inning — taking control and never letting go in a 15-6 victory. “After last night’s loss (to Ben Logan), I was proud of the girls for the way they played tonight,” Tippecanoe coach Charles Tackett said. “Newton’s always a good defensive team, and we put a lot of balls in play.” And with the score tied 2-2 in the top of the fourth, those balls started finding holes in the defense. After a leadoff error, Bri Eichbaum doubled home a run with one out, then Maddie Watkins drove her in. Cassie Gingrich followed with a bunt

Devin Blakely doubled. “They had their ace in (the first four innings),” Troy coach Ty Welker said. “He threw well, and we didn’t really get things going. But we had five walks in the fourth and a double, and that’s how we got our five runs in the fourth. “I thought we did a lot of things well offensively,” Welker said. “We ran the bases well, did a lot of nice things. We just didn’t hit the ball well. Overall, we are going in the right direction.

Meyer’s quest for game-changers is ongoing COLUMBUS (AP) — The list of big-time players Urban Meyer had while winning two national championships at Florida goes on and on: Percy Harvin, Chris Leak, Tim Tebow, Joe Haden and Brandon Spikes, among others. So far, during his first few weeks working with his new team at Ohio State, he has yet to find anyone of that caliber. But he remains hopeful. “You’ve got to do it over and over again but there are times …” he said earlier this week after what he called the best practice he’s seen the offense have in the short time he’s been with the team. “It’s not a clown show out there like at a couple of points it was.” It’s a three-ring affair in many ways. With a new

offensive system, the Buckeyes are learning new plays, new terminology, new philosophies — really one philosophy, Meyer’s. “It’s just really, really, really uptempo,” offensive lineman Jack Mewhort said of the change. “We’re a nohuddle offense now.” That’s dramatically different from years past when Ohio State relied more on muscle and execution to blow people off the ball, freeing the skill players to pile up big yardage. “Last year we were much more of an I-formation team, kind of a pro-style thing with the quarterback under center a lot,” fullback Zach Boren said. “This year it’s all about spreading the field and making vertical plays, getting the ball up and down the field with

speed. We’re not going to be lining up with a fullback and a tight end in the box and just running power. We’re still going to run power this year, we’re still going to be a tough, physical power running team, but we’re just going to do it out of different formations and let guys play in space and make plays.” Now if somebody on offense would just prove that they can do that. All spring Meyer has lamented that no one has shown breakaway speed or playmaking ability. That doesn’t mean the Buckeyes haven’t made some headway, but it’s not like they’ve unearthed a Harvin who can crack a game open from any of three or four positions. In his first season after

taking over a program rocked by Jim Tressel’s forced resignation less than a year ago and a 6-7 mark under interim coach Luke Fickell last fall, Meyer believes the Buckeyes are gaining ground, literally. “There’s momentum in (the running back) group,” he said. “As long as there’s momentum in a group, that’s a positive. And the receivers are getting better. But someone has to — we need two or three to step up.” Funny, but Ohio State might have found someone to turn the tide on the other side of the ball. Although he is far from proving himself an All-American, as Haden and Spikes did at Florida at cornerback and linebacker, respectively, lineman John Simon has been a mainstay

on defense. How good has he been? Meyer went so far as to compare Simon to one of his favorite players at his last coaching stop, a guy still making headlines. “The No. 1 guy, the guy who’s just a warhorse, he is Ohio State football, is John Simon,” Meyer said. “I can’t help but say I love the guy. He’s one of the most committed — he’s Tebowish as far as his commitment.” While none of the wideouts have really stood out, many others on offense have made big strides. Quarterback Braxton Miller, running backs Jordan Hall and Carlos Hyde, tight end Jake Stoneburner and occasionally others have displayed a knack for biting off chunks of yardage.

Of the burly (6-foot, 235 pounds) Hyde, Meyer said, “He’s drinking the Kool-Aid right now.” But that doesn’t mean he’s marked himself as someone who can change a game with one step, one swivel of the hips, one shake-and-bake move like famed Florida quarterbacks Leak and Tebow, who delivered national titles. Besides, it’s a long way to the Sept. 1 opener against Miami (Ohio). “It’s a work in progress,” Meyer said of the quest to find a football home-run hitter. “But the best thing, the snaps are hitting the quarterback right between the numbers. And guys are competing. So that’s why I’m (growing) very impressed with the Ohio State Buckeyes.”

Getting started early Indians use big 1st, drop Royals KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Michael Brantley had one hit in 17 at-bats during Cleveland’s season-opening homestand. One measly hit. He had two of ‘em in the first inning alone Friday. The Indians’ anemic offense broke loose against Luke Hochevar and the Royals. Cleveland pounded out seven runs in the opening frame, and Asdrubal Cabrera tacked on a ninthinning homer for good measure in an 8-3 victory that spoiled Kansas City’s home opener. “That’s the way the game goes,” Indians manager Manny Acta said, almost shrugging in his chair. “Water usually goes to the level it’s supposed to be. I knew those guys would bat better, and the first inning was a great example of that.” Shin-Soo Choo and Jason Kipnis each drove in a pair as the Indians scored more times in the opening inning than they had in any of their first five games. The seven runs allowed by Hochevar (1-1) in the first inning matched the number of runs that Kansas City starters had allowed during a six-game road trip to begin the season. “You couldn’t ask for a better way to start off,” Kipnis said. Derek Lowe (2-0) gave up three runs and 11 hits in 6 2-3 innings for Cleveland. The 38-year-old right-hander routinely worked out of trouble, getting help from a pair of double plays that kept Kansas City from mounting much of a comeback. “When you’re pitching on the road in the other team’s home opener, there’s going to be a lot of buzz,” Lowe

Cleveland Indians’ Michael Brantley, right, beats the tag by Kansas City Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar at second after hitting an RBI-double during the first inning Friday in Kansas City, Mo. said. “To sort of silence them right away, you can’t ask for much more.” Hochevar’s miserable start got a whole lot worse in the fourth inning, when he took a liner off his left ankle hit by Cleveland slugger Carlos Santana. The right-hander went down in a heap as the ball caromed to first base for the final out of the inning. Team officials rushed out to tend to Hochevar, who put almost no weight on his ankle while being helped to the dugout by manager Ned Yost and trainer Nick Kenney. The team said that Hochevar had a “left medial ankle contusion” or, a really

bad bruise. X-rays taken at the ballpark came back negative and he is day to day. “When it hit him, I was real nervous. It got him solid,” Yost said. “I had some fears there it might have fractured his leg, but the Xrays came up negative.” Yost said he’s not sure whether Hochevar will make his next scheduled start. “We’ll see,” Yost said. “It’s five days away.” The first inning was a revelation for Cleveland, which batted just .176 during a miserable 1-4 start that even prompted management to work out a deal with veteran outfielder

Johnny Damon to provide some eventual pop in the Indians’ punchless lineup. Nationals 2, Reds 1 (13 inn.) WASHINGTON — Jayson Werth’s basesloaded single off Reds closer Sean Marshall with one out in the bottom of the 13th inning Friday night gave the Washington Nationals their fourth consecutive victory, a 2-1 comeback against the Cincinnati Reds. The NL East-leading Nationals improved to 6-2, their best start to a season since moving from Montreal to Washington in 2005.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Darren Collison might want to get well soon. While he has been recovering from a sore groin, backup point guard George Hill has proven capable as a starter. Hill had 15 points and seven assists to help the Indiana Pacers clinch a playoff spot by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 102-83 Friday night. Indiana has won all three games Hill has started. He has averaged 16.7 points and 5.3 assists in a win over Toronto and two victories over Cleveland. Hill scored 10 points in the second quarter on Friday, helping the Pacers rally from a 14-point deficit. He played as more of a pure point guard in the third quarter with no points, four assists and no turnovers. “Sometimes, it might not be your time to take the shots and be aggressive,” Hill said. “In the second quarter, even playing with D.G. (Danny Granger) out

there, he saw that I had the mismatch at the time and I had it going a little bit and we were running a lot of things for me, and then in the third quarter, we had D.G. and David West going.” Granger scored 18 points, Tyler Hansbrough scored 16 points, Leandro Barbosa scored 13 points and Roy Hibbert added 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Pacers, who have won seven of eight. Indiana (37-22) matched its win total from last season. The Pacers are in third place in the Eastern Conference standings and are trying to clinch homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs. “We haven’t accomplished anything yet,” Indiana coach Frank Vogel said. “Nothing has changed for us. We felt for a while we would be in the playoffs, but until we get home-court advantage, there is work to be done.”

Saints owner Benson buys Hornets from NBA NEW YORK (AP) — Tom Benson brought stability to the Saints nearly three decades ago and now plans to do the same for the Hornets in small-market New Orleans. The Saints’ owner agreed Friday to purchase the Hornets from the NBA. “We expect this club to be one of the most outstanding clubs in the league, otherwise I don’t want to get involved,” Benson said. “This is just a good thing and I’m just glad to be a part of it.” A person familiar with the deal says the purchase price is $338 million. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the financial terms have not been announced. The NBA has been trying to sell the Hornets since buying the club from founder George Shinn in December 2010. While

preparing the team for sale the league negotiated a new lease for the Hornets to remain in the state-owned New Orleans Arena through 2024. The sale of the team to Benson has to be approved by the NBA’s Board of Governors, which is meeting in New York on Friday. “The city is one of the country’s treasures and we really have found the perfect owner,” Commissioner David Stern said. “Our goal all along has been to get the Hornets bought by somebody whose commitment to New Orleans would be unrivaled.” The framework of ownership negotiations were handled in a way that a new Hornets owner would have to accept the lease worked out between the NBA and Gov. Bobby Jindal. The lease agreement also called for $50 million in improvements to the basketball sta-

dium, which sits right across the street from the Superdome. Once the NBA approves the sale of the team to Benson, the next step is for the state Legislature to approve the arena lease deal because of the funding needed for stadium improvements. But legislative leaders BENSON already have publicly voiced support for the proposed lease deal, which would take effect in July. The 84-year-old Benson, a New Orleans-native, has owned the Saints since 1985, when he stepped in to block efforts by other prospective investors to move the NFL franchise to Jacksonville, Fla. Now Benson has made another major investment to stabilize the NBA’s presence in

the Big Easy on the same day that the Hornets were hosting the Utah Jazz, the very team New Orleans lost to relocation in 1979. Benson helped bring the Saints their first playoff appearance in 1987 and finally a Super Bowl title in 2010. His ownership of the Hornets means the two smallmarket franchises both will be locally owned and now can work as partners in their efforts to attract corporate sponsorships, and Hornets fans can at least hope that will translate to a better product on the hardwood. At the very least, the move provided Benson with some refreshingly positive publicity on the heels of the Saints’ bounty scandal, which led the NFL to sus-

pend head coach Sean Payton for the entire 2012 season the same season that will see New Orleans host the Super Bowl. Only a day before the Saints announced Benson’s purchase of the Hornets, the NFL club announced that assistant head coach Joe Vitt, who also oversees linebackers, would be elevated to interim coach for the coming football season, despite his own six-game suspension in connection with the bounty probe. While the Saints have become a cherished institution that has become entrenched in the local culture since the club’s founding in 1967, the Hornets are relatively new to Louisiana’s pro sports landscape. The Hornets moved to New Orleans from Charlotte in 2002, but have often been on shaky ground since, including when the

club spent two full seasons in Oklahoma City after Hurricane Katrina devastated large parts of southeast Louisiana in August 2005. In 2010, former owner George Shinn decided to pull out. He was unable to find a buyer who would commit to keeping the team in New Orleans, so the NBA took the unprecedented step of taking ownership of the team and has been working to find a new permanent local owner for a year-anda-half. As part of the effort to attract a new owner, team officials spent the past offseason conducting an unusual campaign to build the club’s season-ticket base to 10,000, which the league considers a benchmark for successful franchises. The campaign involved social mixers in the homes of prominent business people in the region.

Under the new plan, Division I would consist of schools with 600 or more males. According to Troy Athletic Director Jeff Sakal’s calculations, Troy should have in the neighborhood of 560 males for

TROY DAILY NEWS • WWW.TROYDAILYNEWS.COM

Divisions 2013, making it one of the bigger Division II schools as opposed to its traditional role as one of the smaller Division I schools in Ohio. “Based upon our present numbers, we would be a Division II school under the new plan,” Sakal said. Sakal said he approves of the measure, which he said would make a more equitable playing field. In 2012, Troy had 552 males enrolled in the school.

Troy’s playoff opponent last fall, Upper Arlington, had 685 males. The 2012 Division I state champion, Cleveland Saint Ignatius, had 1,121 males enrolled in the school. “I feel pretty good that this will be able to level the playing field a little bit,” Sakal said. “Any time you can get kids in a more competitive situation, the better off they’ll be. Plus, you get 32 more schools in the

playoffs every year, which means 32 more communities get to experience that playoff atmosphere. “I think there had been a lot of concern about the difference in numbers at the Division I level. If you look at our situation, to win a state championship last year, we would have had to beat a team that was more than double our size. You better believe that makes a huge difference.”

Tipp-Newton

Roundup ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 (T). 3B — Davis (B). Records: Troy 9-3.

Tippecanoe 6, Ben Logan 1 DAYTON — Ben Hughes gave up only one run in four innings of work, Cameron Johnson came on to finish as the Tippecanoe Red Devils improved to 6-0 in the Central Buckeye Conference Kenton Trail Division with a 6-1 win over Ben Logan Friday at Fifth Third Field. Austin Hadden went 2 for 3 with a triple and two RBIs, B.J. Donathan was 2 for 3 with two RBIs and Steven Calhoun tripled in the win. Tipp is now 9-4 on the season.

Newton’s Fawn King catches a popup at third base Friday. ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 single, and CC Alvarez and Darlene Reinhard backed that up with backto-back RBI singles. An RBI fielder’s choice by Kristin Mace put the Devils up 8-2 — and they never looked back. “They’re a very good team,” Newton coach Kirk Kadel said. “And that’s why we like to come play them.” It was the second game of the day for the Indians, who had played the Bradford Railroaders in a critical Cross County Conference game earlier in the day — and beaten them 2-1 in a tense, emotional game that came down to the wire. The winning run was scored on a wild pitch with two outs in the bottom of the seventh on a two-strike count. Kirsten Burden got the win in that game, which was a rematch of last year’s sectional championship, then her arm got some much-needed rest against the Devils. “That was a great game,” Kadel said. “Kirsten pitched a great game, and neither team committed any errors. That was a big win for us.” “Newton played a big league game right before coming here. That’s tough,” Tackett said. “People think I’m nuts to do that, but that’s how you get better,” Kadel said. “That’s why we come here — to play good teams.” Erin Hixon got the start in Newton’s late game — and faced a very formidable Red Devil lineup. Tippecanoe pounded out 18 hits on the night,

Newton, meanwhile, had 15 hits itself — but left 10 runners stranded. “We just didn’t get the big hit when we needed it, or they would make a big play when they needed it,” Kadel said. “With CC out there in center, she’s going to track down anything out there.

TCN 12, Bethel 1 (5 inn.) BRANDT — In an mid season clash between Bethel and Tri-County North — two of the better teams in the Cross County Conference — the Bees came out flat on defense in a 12-1 five inning loss to the Panthers on Friday. The Bees had eight errors, which led to two Panthers runs in the first, four more in the third, five in the fourth and one in the fifth to complete the runrule. Luke Veldman got the loss on the hill. The loss drops Bethel to 3-1 in the CCC — 11-2 overall — while Tri-County North moves to 4-0 in league play with the win. “I knew they were one of the better teams in our league,” Bethel coach Brett Brookhart said. “But we came out not ready to play from the get-go. We had eight errors, we didn’t hit the ball well and we didn’t field well. When you don’t do those things well, it’s hard to win games. Hopefully we can learn from this and bounce back.” Bethel is back in action today at home against Springfield Central Catholic in a double header.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas put the former mistress of Bobby Petrino on paid leave Friday and disclosed that she used a $20,000 “gift” from the disgraced former coach to buy a car in her first week on the job. University spokesman Steve Voorhies said Jessica Dorrell, a 25-year-old football department employee, had been placed on leave but declined further comment, calling it a private personnel issue. Dorrell, a former Arkansas volleyball player, was a Razorback Foundation fundraiser before she was hired as a student-athlete development coordinator by Petrino on March 28 at an annual salary of $55,735. She has not returned repeated calls seeking comment. The move came as

Petrino said he would not appeal his firing and seek any of the $18 million buyout that was part of his contract. His agent, Russ Campbell, sent an email to athletic director Jeff Long late Thursday saying Petrino had accepted “responsibility for the events that led to the university’s decision to terminate his contract.” “Coach Petrino and his family wish nothing but the best for both the Razorback football program and University of Arkansas,” Campbell wrote. Petrino had the option to appeal as part of the sevenyear contract he agreed to in December 2010. The contract was for more than $3.5 million annually and carried the $18 million mutual buyout clause in 2011 and 2012. The amount dropped over the life of the contract, falling to as little

as $3.9 million in 2017. Long said that Petrino was fired for cause, meaning the coach was not owed anything. The 51-year-old Petrino was fired Tuesday for failing to disclose his relationship with Dorrell before she was hired, as required by conflict of interest rules at the school. The affair became public only after the two went for a motorcycle ride April 1 and skidded off the road, putting Petrino in the hospital and resulting in a police report that contained her identity. Long has said the two were in a relationship for a “significant” amount of time and phone records show they exchanged more than 4,300 text messages and nearly 300 phone calls over the past seven months, possibly including photo and video content. The termination letter

Long sent to Petrino was released by the school Friday and it had more specifics. “(Y)ou deliberately failed to tell me that you had engaged in an extramarital affair with Ms. Dorrell over a period of several months leading up to your recommendation to hire her,” Long wrote. “If you had been forthcoming with me about the true nature of your relationship, I would not have approved the hiring.” Long also said Petrino “admitting giving $20,000 cash to Ms. Dorrell as a ‘gift.’ Ms. Dorrell used the money to purchase a black Acura during the first week that she worked for the football program. “Among other concerns relating to this ‘gift,’ you should have disclosed this fact to me … but you failed to do so,” Long wrote.
