Police: ‘Deja vu all over again’ Fletcher man arrested for crime similar to past infraction BY WILL E SANDERS Ohio Community Media

Dick Clark dies at age 82 Dick Clark, the ever-youthful television host and tireless entrepreneur who helped bring rock ‘n’ roll into the mainstream on “American Bandstand,” and later produced and hosted a vast range of programming from game shows to the year-end countdown from Times Square on “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” has died. He was 82. See Page 6

Tipp council reviews fire station project Council reviewed plans for the Fire and EMS station renovation and expansion Monday night, and while they were honed down from the original plan, the renovations are expected to meet the needs of the city’s firefighters and EMTs and stay within budget. “It meets all those things that we said we needed,” said EMS Chief Mark Senseman. “We started with the ideal, and then started crunching down.”

Panetta makes apology for grisly photos Defense Secretary Leon Panetta apologized Wednesday for gruesome, newly revealed photographs that show U.S. soldiers posing with the bloodied remains of dead insurgents in Afghanistan. He said war can lead young troops to “foolish decisions” and expressed concern the photos could incite fresh violence against Americans. See Page 9.

Authorities arrested a Fletcher man Wednesday afternoon after a search warrant executed at his home turned up a semi-tractor that was reported as stolen from a police impound lot in Texas. The suspect, Clifford A.

Polhamus Jr., 60, who resides at the property, was charged with felony receiving stolen property by deputies Wednesday and he remains held in the Miami County Jail for his arraignment in municipal court this morning where his bond will be set. Polhamus was indicted, convicted and served time in prison for similar crimes he committed in

FLETCHER 2004 at the same property, which is located at 5345 E. U.S. Route 36, just east of Fletcher, and now police say he is back at it again. “It’s like deja vu all over again,” Miami County Sheriff ’s Office Chief Deputy Dave Duchak said of the latest allegations against

Polhamus. Authorities executing a search warrant recovered a semi tractor on the property that was stolen from a police impound lot in Coman County, Texas, Duchak said. Authorities in Texas initially impounded the semi-tractor after it was found to have inaccuracies with the vehicle identification number, authorities at the scene of

Students prepare for OAA testing


BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer hio students across the state will have their No. 2 pencils sharpened and ready to take another round of the state’s Ohio Achievement Assessments (OAA) next week. Next week, Ohio students in grades 3-8 will be tested on their reading and math proficiency, while fifth- and eighthgrade students also will be tested in science. Ohio Achievement Assessments, along with the Ohio Graduation Test which were taken in March, make up the scores for each school district’s state “report card.” Last year, Troy Junior High was ranked as “Excellent with Distinction” as a building, meeting all six indications, and positive value-added scores. Troy City Schools as a whole ranked “Excellent with Distinction.” Troy Junior High School Principal Dave Dilbone said the more than 700 students in his building are prepared for OAA tests, even being drilled on where the test will be administered in the building next week. “When you have more than 700 students, even the little things like not knowing where to go on test day, can throw them off,” Dilbone said. “So we took time to practice where each ‘team’ of students goes on test days next week.”



Eighth-grade students of Troy Junior High School, including Nick Simon and Kayla Coate, discuss gravity and all of the indicators of space with science teacher Kelly Wolfe Wednesday. Other students of Wolfe’s class are taking practice tests for OAA.

TROY Dilbone said both staff and students have been diligently working on their test preparation all year long because the test material aligns with the state’s academic standards or the “Ohio Core.” “We’ve had practice tests, we’ve expanded advisory times for students — I think we are ready,” Dilbone said. Dilbone said he urged student to get plenty of rest and of course, eat a good breakfast, during next week’s state testing,

which begins Tuesday. All in all, Dilbone said every ‘t’ has been crossed and every ‘i’ has been dotted for Troy Junior High’s OAA tests next week. “I even bought mints for the teachers to pass out to the students to have during the test,” said Dilbone, citing academic studies have shown students perform higher when given hard candy, which leads the student to focus more on the task — or in this case, the test — at hand. For the school year in general, Troy Junior High School’s days of testing may be winding down,

but the school also has been selected to pilot the Ohio Department of Education’s computerized OAA test for social studies. “I won’t say the days of paper and pencils tests are completely over, but it certainly seems to be the direction the state wants to take,” Dilbone said. For more information about the OAA tests, including what is expected of the students, practice tests and how to decipher test results, visit the Ohio Department of Education’s OAA site at

Kiwanis of Troy will be fund-raising with flapjacks this Saturday to benefit local children’s programs. All community members are invited to Pancake Day from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Staunton Grange Hall, 1530 N. Market St. “This is one of our main fundraisers for Kiwanis that we’ve done for many, many years,” said Kiwanis of Troy president-elect Bobby Phillips. In addition to pancakes, breakfast sausage by Troy Meat Market will be served, providing the opportunity to support a local business, Phillips said. Other side dishes will be prepared as well. Proceeds from the event support local youth activities. “We have several reading programs, and we purchase the books we read to the kids and then give the books to them,” Phillips explained, referring to a Head Start program. Kiwanis members also participate in Bringing Up Grades in which local fourth-grade students at Kyle and Forest elementary schools are rewarded with prizes for either maintaining straight A’s or moving up a grade. Phillips said he would like to add another elementary school next year. The organization also gives scholarships to graduating seniors, among other philanthropic efforts. Tickets for Pancake Day may be purchased at the door and are priced at $6 for adults, $3 for ages 6-12 and free for 5 and under.

WEST MILTON With a limited amount of space and a need to be physically seen by the public, the police department is looking into drafting a proposal request for a new or renovated facility. Matt Kline, the municipal manager, is the one moving this earlystage project forward and said that it will take him at least a month to get a rough draft of the request together. He is currently looking at proposal requests from other cities to get ideas of how to write it. Once the request is drafted, Kline will look into hiring a

designer and contractor and figure out the cost, search for grants and loan programs and find out if the plan is affordable. “We can’t assume we can’t afford it,” Kline said. “Because of the conditions, in my opinion, we can’t afford not to look into it.” Kline also said at this point the village doesn’t know how much renovations will cost. Garry Kimpel, who has been the city’s police chief for four years, said the lack of visibility for his department in the community by being in the back of the government building has become a concern to him. “I think it’s important that visi-

the search said. The Polhamus property contains numerous amounts of semi tractors and trailers in addition to other vehicles, including a public transit bus and other heavy equipment. Each one is being investigated by the police as the scope of the investigation continued to widen Wednesday afternoon after a supplemental search warrant was issued, said sheriff ’s Lt. Detective Steve Lord. Lord added that investigators are also searching a home on the POLHAMUS property in order to “look for records of salvaged titles and other documents.” “If you get a salvaged title and go out and steal another vehicle that is similar and take the parts off of it and put it on the chassis with a good VIN number then basically you have a free vehicle for a salvage price,” Lord said. “What we are looking for is to see if he is doing that. There is evidence that suggests he has done this previously, and that is why we are out here today.” The investigation continues and more charges were expected to be filed in the case, authorities

updated facility, would also help prevent more temporary crime in the area. Another area of concern is functionality and space. With the space they have, different jobs inside the department have the daily possibility of colliding with other responsibilities. Fingerprinting is done in the garage. Breathalyzer tests are done in the main room where officers type up reports. Kimpel refers to it as the “road room.” A locker room also runs off of this room where the officers get changed. The locker room is about the size of a large walk-in closet. Police also have to take witnesses and suspects outside their hall to a conference room more toward the middle of the municipal building in order to talk without distractions. And with other visitors coming in with complaints and other issues, the traffic at the police department can make for a crowded area. “It’s almost impossible to conduct business,” Kimpel said. “It’s not a good situation for professional policing.” For Kimpel and Kline, a

professional police building should consist of three different spaces for dealing with the general public, taking care of day-to-day business and handling prisoners. “We could better serve the citizens of West Milton if we had a facility that was more functional and had a little more space to separate the functions,” Kimpel said. There is also a safety concern when dealing with prisoners. With objects laying out in the offices and work areas at the police department, the opportunity could arise for a suspect or convict to grab an object and use it as a weapon. Regardless of the end result, the police department is seeking a way that will work for both them and the people of West Milton. “Obviously, we want to do what’s most effective at the lowest cost for the citizens because it’s their money we’re spending,” Kimpel said. Because of his “one stop shop” philosophy, Kline would like to keep the police department in the same area the government offices and fire station are in if possible, so that the municipal building stays “customer-oriented.” “I think that’s the way we should be,” Kline said. “I like to have all things government local to our customers, which are our citizens.” Anyone interested in touring the West Milton Police Department should contact Matt Kline or Garry Kimpel at (937) 698-1500.

3 agents out in wake of Secret Service scandal WASHINGTON (AP) — Moving swiftly, the Secret Service forced out three agents Wednesday in a prostitution scandal that has embarrassed President Barack Obama. A senior congressman welcomed the move to hold people responsible for the tawdry episode but warned “it’s not over.” The agency announced three agents are leaving the service even as separate U.S. government investigations were under way. The Secret Service did not identify the agents being forced out of the government or eight more it said remain on administrative leave. In a statement, it said one supervisor was allowed to retire and another will be fired for cause. A third employee, who was not a supervisor, has resigned. The agents were implicated in the prostitution scandal in Colombia that also involved about 10 military service members and as many as 20 women. All the Secret Service employees who were involved had their security clearances revoked. “These are the first steps,” said Rep. Pete King, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, which oversees the Secret Service. King said the agency’s director, Mark Sullivan, took employment action against “the three people he believes the case was clearest against.” But King warned: “It’s certainly not over.”

King said the agent set to be fired would sue. King said Sullivan had to follow collective bargaining rules but was “moving as quickly as he can. Once he feels the facts are clear, he’s going to move.” The embarrassing scandal erupted last week after 11 Secret Service agents were sent home from the colonial-era city of Cartagena on Colombia’s Caribbean coast after a night of partying that reportedly ended with at least some of them bringing prostitutes back to their hotel. The special agents and uniformed officers were in Colombia in advance of President Barack Obama’s arrival for the Summit of the Americas. A White House official said Wednesday night that Obama had not spoken directly to Sullivan since the incident unfolded late last week. Obama’s senior aides are in close contact with Sullivan and the agency’s leadership, said the official, who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. In Washington and Colombia, separate U.S. government investigations were already under way. King said he has assigned four congressional investigators to the probe. The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, led by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., sought details of the Secret Service investigation, including the disciplinary histories of the agents involved.

Question: Do you think George Zimmerman is guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin?

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

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


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


Syria’s Assad remains unbowed by Annan plan BEIRUT (AP) — The U.N. insists a fragile truce it brokered in Syria is holding, even though regime forces have been hammering the rebellious city of Homs with artillery for days. It’s a sign of the leeway the international community seems willing to give President Bashar Assad in hopes of forcing him into the next stage of special envoy Kofi Annan’s peace plan talks with opponents who demand his removal. Assad has made it brutally clear that he won’t step aside, trying to snuff out a 13-month uprising with tank fire and mass arrests. Even though he ostensibly accepted Annan’s plan, he’s likely to wriggle out of it since he seems largely insulated from pressure. He does not face a threat of Western military intervention. Poorly armed rebel fighters don’t pose a danger to his rule. And Assad has the backing of Russia, China and Iran, along with key groups at home. Some even argue the Annan plan has actually allowed Assad to strengthen his hold on the country of 22 million. “There is nothing to suggest that there is light at the end of the tunnel here,” said Shadi Hamid of the Brookings Doha Center, a Gulf-based think tank. “If the end game is the fall of the Assad regime, I don’t think we are any closer to the end game.” From the time the April 12 cease-fire deadline was announced, the regime escalated blanket shelling attacks on rebel-held neighborhoods, killing dozens every day in what the opposition described as a frenzied last-minute rush to crush the uprising. Yet the plan by Annan, the joint U.N.-Arab League emissary, is the only one a deadlocked international community could rally behind and is seen as the only practical way forward. The West is “half-heartedly supporting the Annan plan although it expects it to fail, because it is even more hesitant at the idea of getting sucked into an armed confrontation,” said Peter Harling of the International Crisis Group think tank. Syria’s allies, meanwhile, back the initiative because, unlike an Arab League plan earlier this year, it does not require Assad to step down ahead of transition talks. Still, even Annan demands that Assad eventually “address the legitimate aspirations and concerns of the Syrian people” in talks with the opposition. The behavior of the regime in the past few days suggests the plan is likely to unravel well before any political talks could begin. Since a truce formally took effect Thursday, Syria has violated key provisions. Tanks, troops and widely feared plainclothes security agents continue to patrol the streets to deter anti-regime protests, despite Annan’s demand that the army pull back to its bases. And while there’s been a sharp drop in violence since last week, the regime resumed its assault on rebellious Homs, Syria’s third-largest city, over the weekend, after only a brief lull. U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon hinted Monday he’s ready to overlook Assad’s transgressions for now. He said the truce is “very fragile” but essential for getting to political negotiations, suggesting Ban is willing to stretch the definition of a cease-fire to salvage Annan’s plan. It’s not clear if Ban will call out Assad on truce violations once a full contingent of up to 250 U.N. monitors has been deployed. So far, only an advance team of six is on the ground. Annan has been intentionally vague about the terms of political talks since gaps are vast and neither side even recognizes the other. The regime portrays its opponents as thugs and terrorists, while the Syrian National Council, the main opposition group, says there’s no point talking to Assad. Political leaders of the opposition say they’re willing to let Annan’s plan play out even though they believe Assad has no intention of heeding it.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP London Evening Standard on European Court of Human Rights decision: The European Court of Human Rights has done the right thing in ruling that five terrorist suspects including Abu Hamza and Babar Ahmad may be extradited to the U.S. The reason for the appeal to the European Court was that conditions in the Colorado detention center to which the men would be sent if convicted, the so-called Alcatraz of the Rockies, are so harsh as to constitute a violation of the human rights of prisoners kept there. Certainly, if convicted, the

prisoners would be kept in solitary confinement with only restricted opportunities for talking to each other. But while there is no gainsaying that U.S. penal conditions are harsher than in Britain, this is not a reason for refusing extradition to a friendly, democratic nation. If the men were likely to face the death penalty, it might, arguably, be another matter but solitary confinement is not torture in any real sense. There are certainly problems with the extradition arrangements between the U.S. and the UK but this is not a case in point. But although the Strasbourg Court has got this ruling right, this is not

always or even usually so. Its ruling in the case of the Islamist cleric Abu Qatada, that he cannot be extradited to Jordan lest information gained in the course of torture might be used against him — not even that he himself might be tortured — was an embarrassment for Britain. The European Convention on Human Rights includes a number of competing rights and it is time for Britain to give far more weight to the right of states and individuals to self-preservation and rather less to the human rights of those who conspire against them. France and Italy can do it; so can we.

Even Peter Pan has to grow up at some point Eventually, even Peter Pan accepted the big check from Disney, took the merchandising deals and sold out to the man. Second star to the right and straight on till a button-down job, indeed. Even Peter Pan grew up. When I graduated college, I promised myself I was going to buck the trend. I was going to be the one who stayed young forever, kept up on all the current trends, listened to all the hot music and watch all the coolest television shows. I would never be the one caught in last year’s fashion trend. I was going to stay out all night, howl at the moon and eternally be 20-something years old. A funny thing happened on my way to Neverland, however. Somewhere along the line, The Fong became Mr. Fong. I put on 20 pounds, started wearing dress pants to work and found myself more likely watching my daughter at the ballet bar than I was in frequenting the local bar. In the past decade or so, life has finally caught up with my hard-charging lifestyle. I find myself standing

David Fong Troy Daily News Executive Editor in front of the mirror every morning looking for gray hairs, wanting to tell kids in the car next to me to turn down their music and worrying about whether I’ve remembered to make my monthly life insurance payment. I’m a grumpy old man who doesn’t much care for anything kids these days like. Either that or everything is just worse now than it was 20 years ago. Actually, come to think of it, I may go with the latter as opposed to the former. We’ve had a recent influx of young talent in our newsroom lately. I can’t help but notice that though they may be outstanding writers and reporters,

their taste in all things pop culture is, for the most part, horrific. Either that or, as I pointed out earlier, I’m just getting old. While I’m not particularly fond of their taste in television, movies or fashion, I suppose I’m most offended by their taste in music. They all listen to the most insanely inane assortment of noise I’ve ever heard. (Wow, I really AM starting to sound like an old man). The most popular performers in our office are, as near as I can tell: Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Justin Bieber (no, seriously!) and Justin Timberlake. This, apparently, is what music has come to. A gaggle of marginally talented youngsters who have benefitted greatly from marketing machines. It’s not as though I haven’t tried to educate them about what real music is supposed to sound like. Most of the time, they just look at me with blank stares and gaping jaws when I try to describe why a performer like, say, Meat Loaf is far superior

to someone like Justin Timberlake. I knew it was a lost cause last week when one of our reporters had the unmitigated temerity to say, “I think Michael Buble is better than Frank Sinatra.” Our future. I weep for it. Of course, I can only imagine most of my older co-workers felt the same way when I first started here and proudly proclaimed the Insane Clown Posse as “the voice of my generation.” I remember them shaking their heads and sighing a lot when I was around. I find myself doing a lot of that lately. Truth of the matter is, music, television, movies and fashion trends probably aren’t that much better or worse today than they were 20 years ago. I’m just getting older and more curmudgeonly. Even Peter Pan had to grow up at some point. Troy’s very own David Fong appears on Thursdays in the Troy Daily News. He’s much too young to feel this darn old.

Spray paint vandals sought

Someone has gone crazy with the spray paint in Tipp City again. This time, it was Oxford Blue that blanketed downtown Tipp City on Saturday morning. More


than 25 businesses, TIPP CITY homes, buildings and even a van were vandalized with blue spray paint. The Thanks to security victims were on Main, footage from one of the Walnut, Second, Third and businesses, the Tipp City Plum streets.

Former Rams center Rich Saul dies at 64 NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Rich Saul, a six-time Pro Bowl center who played on the only Los Angeles Rams team to reach the Super Bowl, has died. The St. Louis Rams posted a statement on their website Monday saying Saul died after nine years of leukemia Sunday in Newport Beach, Calif. He was 64. Originally the Rams’ eighth-round draft pick out of Michigan State in

1970, Saul earned Pro Bowl status in each of his last six seasons from 1975 to 1981 and finished his career with 105 consecutive starts. He was a favorite of Rams quarterback Vince Ferragamo, who took his snaps in Super Bowl XIV. The Rams lost 31-19 to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Saul’s twin brother Ron also played 12 seasons in the NFL for the Houston Oilers and Washington Redskins.




Learn to accept your uncle for who he is Dear Annie: My 85-year-old uncle, a widower, spends several days a week at casinos. This is no penny-ante stuff. He gambled away everything he ever owned and had to move into subsidized housing. He is somewhat fatalistic at this point, figuring he won't live much longer and so he wants to have fun. While we recognize his right to spend his money as he pleases, bank statements indicate he is now using credit cards at the casinos. He has run up debt on at least three cards, making only the minimum payments to keep them active. He has no "estate" left to hold responsible for debts after his death and figures everything will be written off. He sees nothing ethically wrong with this. So, who will get stuck paying for the $20,000 in credit card debt when he dies? Who pays for the selfishness of his addiction? Why do credit card companies continue to raise credit limits for people his age, and how do they not notice that his charges are almost exclusively coming from gambling institutions? The casinos are no help getting him to stop. They send buses to pick him up. Is there anything I can do? — Wish He Knew When To Fold 'Em Dear Wish: If your uncle has no assets at the time of his death, the debt would likely be written off. He could arrange to have himself barred from entering casinos, but he obviously doesn't want to be rescued from his addiction. Credit card companies are in the business of extending credit, and casinos are in the business of getting people to gamble. They aren't going to be of assistance. You can contact Gam-Anon ( for support, but understand that this becomes your problem only if your uncle gambles himself into destitution earlier than expected and you end up taking care of him. There's no point to being angry and frustrated. You don't have to admire your uncle, but you can learn to accept him as he is. Dear Annie: My 2-year-old daughter still sleeps with my husband and me in our bed, and this obviously is putting a damper on our sex life. We have placed a "big girl bed" in our bedroom, but she won't use it. So we let her fall asleep in our bed and then transfer her to her own. However, most of the time, it's so late that we fall asleep without moving her. Or, she wakes up in the middle of the night, and my husband puts her back in our bed. Any suggestions? — Want My Privacy Dear Want: Your daughter has learned that she is entitled to sleep with Mommy and Daddy. If you want a different result, you will need to work at it. You cannot simply fall asleep because you're tired, or let her sleep with you because it's easier than training her to sleep in her own bed (preferably in her own room). This is simple behavior modification. You will need to place her in her bed repeatedly. She's going to cry repeatedly. Be firm and insistent, but not angry. It will take a long time to get her to change her sleep habits, and every time you give in, you'll be starting over from scratch. Talk to your pediatrician about it, and make sure your husband is on board. Dear Annie: "Frazzled" said her husband had an affair 30 years ago and now has a 17-yearold daughter from that union. Forget the morality of it. The scientific aspect is amazing! The fact that his sperm laid dormant for nearly 13 years is what's really important. Find out how he did that, and you will be able to replace cryogenics and make a fortune. — Curious Dave Dear Dave: Very funny. For the math obsessed, "Frazzled" said her husband had a "long-term affair" with a 16-year-old girl that began 30 years ago. If the affair lasted 13 years and he broke things off when she became pregnant, the daughter could easily be 17 now.

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:


Paint tray is in the bag with this helpful hint Dear Heloise: When doing some painting around the house, you can make cleanup a breeze by putting two plastic shopping bags (with print side turned inside out) on your paint tray. Just put one over the other on each end and tie with a knot. You may have to work the roller down in the tray if the bags are a little snug. Pour the paint in the wrapped tray and paint away. When it’s time for cleanup, you can cut the knot and invert the bags back off the tray. You can even put the used roller cover inside the bags, close them up and throw them away. No cleaning your paint tray, and no need to buy a tray liner.

Hints from Heloise Columnist — Carmen from California Love this hint, as it’s a cleaning and reuse one at the same time! — Heloise EMERGENCY LIGHTING Dear Heloise: Little did I know that the e-reader (Heloise here: an electronic tablet computer that you can download books onto) I received as a gift would

come in handy during an emergency. As I was reading one night, the power suddenly went out. The room went totally dark, except for the light from my reader. The light it gave allowed me to find my way through the house to search for candles, flashlights, etc. It also holds a charge for quite a long time. I plan to keep it on my bedside table from now on. — Karen P., Conyngham, Pa. EXTRA COUPONS Dear Heloise: I have another way to share coupons. I would like to suggest giving them to animal shelters, humane societies and veterinarians’ offices

for pet/animal food or supplies. Many times people could use a little help feeding the furry little/big ones. I know I look for the coupons all the time. — Donna W. in St. Augustine, Fla. DRYING GLOVES Dear Heloise: I store my rubber dishwashing gloves on the top rack of the dishwasher. This allows them to drip-dry between uses and lets me know that the dishes are dirty until it’s time to run it. — Patti, via email SAVING SPACE Dear Heloise: Place mats can be hung together on a skirt hanger. They take up very little space in a closet. — Phyllis H., Jensen Beach, Fla.



Thursday, April 19, 2012










HOROSCOPE Thursday, April 19, 2012 You’re likely to make a major directional change in the year ahead, one that will turn out to be extremely worthwhile. Even though it might take much more effort than you originally had thought to pull off, it’ll be worth everything you put into it. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — You’ll have more direct control over conditions that affect you personally in this current cycle. This makes it a good time to begin rearranging things to comply with your timetable. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Chances are you’ll be much luckier if you don’t attempt to do things in a severely structured fashion. Keep plenty of room available for some friendly influences to operate. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Your hopes and expectations have betterthan-usual chances of being fulfilled at this point in time, provided they are based on practical thinking and not just wishful hopes. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Because you’re in a fortuitous achievement cycle currently, everything you can set your mind to can be accomplished. Your success is based on a strong and justified belief in yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Although you might not realize it right now, something that you’ve long been futilely hoping for is likely to come your way at last, even if in a somewhat backhanded manner. Trust in the fates. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Even though it might not be totally apparent, the ideas you’re espousing are winning you the respect or your contemporaries. Believe in yourself as much as others do. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Agreements into which you enter at this point in time that are based on trying to be fair to everybody have very good probabilities for producing mutual benefits for everybody involved. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — The most substantial gains you’re likely to enjoy today will, in all probability, come about through joint endeavors that have solid foundations upon which success can be built and prosper. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — It behooves you to let your heart rule your head in terms of decision-making. Usually this is an unwise course to follow, but if conditions warrant it, it will be the way to go. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Devote your energies at this time to projects that are labors of love, and you can make this a very productive day. When you like doing something, the results can be outstanding. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Someone who has never done so before may offer you some kind of small gift of special consideration. If you believe that he or she has no ulterior motive, feel free to accept. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — The payoff is much closer than you realize regarding an endeavor on which you’ve been working a long time. The returns could actually be much larger than you had anticipated, as well. COPYRIGHT 2012 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

images to bring further injury to our people or to our relationship with the Afghan people.” “My apology is on behalf of the Department of Defense and the U.S. government,” Panetta told a news conference in Brussels following a meeting of NATO allies at which the way ahead in Afghanistan was the central topic. The photos were published in Wednesday’s Los Angeles Times. One shows members of the 82nd Airborne Division posing in 2010 with Afghan police holding the severed legs of a suicide bomber. The same platoon a few months later was sent to investigate the remains of three insurgents reported to have accidentally blown themselves up and soldiers again posed and mugged for a photo with the remains, the newspaper said. A photo from the second incident appears to show the hand of a dead insurgent resting on a U.S. soldier’s shoulder as the soldier smiles. Panetta said he had urged the newspaper not to publish the photos, which it said it were given by a member of the 82nd Airborne.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Thursday, April 19, the 110th day of 2012. There are 256 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 19, 1912, a special subcommittee of the Senate Commerce Committee opened hearings in New York into the Titanic disaster. (The hearings, which were subsequently moved to Washington, D.C., concluded on May 28.) On this date: • In 1775, the American Revolutionary War began with the battles of Lexington and Concord.

Panetta apologizes for gruesome photos WASHINGTON (AP) — Defense Secretary Leon Panetta apologized Wednesday for gruesome, newly revealed photographs that show U.S. soldiers posing with the bloodied remains of dead insurgents in Afghanistan. He said war can lead young troops to “foolish decisions” and expressed concern the photos could incite fresh violence against Americans. The White House called the two-yearold photos “reprehensible,” joining Panetta and other top military officials in expressing regret for the latest in a string of embarrassing missteps by the U.S. military in a war that’s built on earning the trust and confidence of ordinary Afghans. In recent months, American troops have been caught up in controversies over burning Muslim holy books, urinating on Afghan corpses, an alleged massacre of 17 Afghan villagers and other misdeeds. “This is war. I know that war is ugly and it’s violent, and I know that young people sometimes caught up in the moment make some very foolish decisions,” Panetta said. “I am not excusing that behavior, but neither do I want these


• In 1861, a week after the Civil War began, President Abraham Lincoln authorized a blockade of Southern ports. • In 1943, during World War II, tens of thousands of Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto began a valiant but ultimately futile battle against Nazi forces. • In 1951, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, relieved of his Far East command by President Harry S. Truman, bid farewell in an address to Congress in which he quoted a line from a ballad: “Old soldiers

never die; they just fade away.” • In 1982, astronauts Sally K. Ride and Guion S. Bluford Jr. became the first woman and first African-American to be tapped for U.S. space missions. • In 1995, a truck bomb destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 people. (Bomber Timothy McVeigh was later convicted of federal murder charges and executed.) • Today’s Birthdays: Actor Tim Curry is 66. Former race car driver Al Unser Jr. is 50.

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.

Summitt steps down

April 19, 2012

Tennessee head coach Pat Summitt cuts down the net after Tennessee beat LSU in the SEC tournament championship in Nashville, Tenn March 4. Summitt, the sport’s winningest coach, is stepping aside as Tennessee’s women’s basketball coach and taking the title of “head coach emeritus,” the university announced Wednesday.

Warlick to replace Hall of Fame coach By The Associated Press Pat Summitt, who won more games than anyone in NCAA college basketball history, stepped down Wednesday as coach of the Tennessee Lady Vols, less than eight months after revealing she had early-onset dementia. “I’ve loved being the head coach at Tennessee for 38 years, but I recognize that the time has come to move into the future and to step into a new role,” the 59year-old Hall of Famer said in a statement issued by the school. Longtime assistant Holly Warlick will take over for Summitt, who will become head coach emeritus. A news conference is scheduled this afternoon at the school

in Knoxville. When the Lady Vols lost in a regional final to eventual national champion Baylor, Warlick’s tears were a telltale sign of how draining the season had been and also that it likely was Summitt’s last game. “She is an icon who does not view herself in that light, and her legacy is well-defined and everlasting,” athletic director Dave Hart said. “Just like there will never be another John Wooden, there will never be another Pat Summitt. I look forward to continuing to work with her in her new role. She is an inspiration to everyone.” Summitt will report to Hart

Dragons Lair FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Junior Arias hit a threerun shot and Yovan Gonzalez added a solo blast as Dayton hammered Fort Wayne 9-4 Wednesday night. The TinCaps cut the lead to one at 5-4, but Gonzalez’ homer was the start of four straight runs for the Dragons (6-7).



Latos lit up in 11-1 loss to Cardinals ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jaime Garcia pitched seven effective innings and hit a two-run triple, Carlos Beltran homered again and the St. Louis Cardinals extended their winning streak to a season-high four games Wednesday night with an 11-1 rout of the slumping Cincinnati Reds. Beltran hit a two-run shot, his fifth homer overall and second of the series. Tyler Greene also had a two-run homer while Rafael Furcal had four hits and drove in two runs. Garcia (2-0) allowed one run on seven hits and three walks. He

was aided by four double plays and helped his cause with a triple off the wall in center field in the sixth that made it 7-1 and chased Mat Latos (0-2). The Reds have dropped five of the first six games on their 10game road trip and are already five games in back of the Cardinals in the NL Central. Devin Mesoraco drove in Cincinnati’s only run with an infield single in the fifth. Latos lasted 5 2-3 innings for his longest stint of the year, but was touched for eight runs on nine hits while walking three and striking out six.

The Cardinals greeted Latos rudely as Furcal doubled down the line in right leading off the first and Beltran followed with a walk. Furcal later scored on Lance Berkman’s infield single and David Freese delivered a two-run double. Beltran made it 5-0 when he homered with two out in the second. That was not an uncommon occurrence Beltran had also homered off Latos in his two other official at-bats coming into Wednesday, though Latos did later retire Beltran for the first time in the fourth on a groundout.

Preble sweeps Milton Staff Reports WEST MILTON — MiltonUnion needed to knock off Preble Shawnee Wednesday to keep the Arrows from sweeping the season series and get back within striking distance of the Southwestern Buckeye League Buckeye Division leader.

MIAMI COUNTY But the Bulldogs simply couldn’t get the one hit they needed. And a solo shot by the Arrows proved to be all they would need in a 2-0 Milton-Union loss Wednesday, a game in which the Bulldogs had plenty of chances. “We didn’t get the job done. We didn’t hit in key situations,” Milton-Union coach Curt

Hall monitor Senior back looks to be featured COLUMBUS (AP) — What’s a high-energy, fast-paced offense without a back who is capable of keeping a drive going? With Dan “Boom” Herron no longer around, there are a lot of questions surrounding Ohio State’s tailbacks. Jordan Hall has clearly AP FILE PHOTO marked himself as the front-runOhio State running back Jordan Hall runing against Purdue in West ner at the position, with Carlos Lafayette, Ind. Nov. 12, 2011.

Ohio State’s coaches have not released a two-deep roster. But Hall, a senior who is probably more famous for being a high school teammate of Buckeyes outcast Terrelle Pryor than for anything he’s done on the field in college, has clearly made an impression. “We’re going to play to Jordan Hall’s strengths,” running backs coach Stan Drayton said. “He’s a

(Not) just another night for Moyer DENVER (AP) — Jamie Moyer wasn’t overly sore or elated after his recordsetting night. The 49-year-old Colorado Rockies lefty was pretty much business as usual Wednesday, the day after becoming the oldest pitcher to win a major league contest. After pitching seven AP PHOTO sharp innings against San Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Jamie Moyer throws Diego, his arm was a little in the first inning against the San Diego Padres on bit tired and his legs stiff. Tuesday in Denver. But that’s typical for

him after a start. Only, this was far from an ordinary trip to the mound. Moyer was the talk of baseball as he turned in a vintage performance to work his way into the record books. About that: Moyer doesn’t want to be viewed as a novelty act. He’s here to help, not make history. The record-setting outing didn’t mean as much to him as pulling the Rockies out of a two-game skid.

■ National Basketball Association

“Milestones and records become secondary when you’re playing a team sport and have a goal of progressing into the playoffs,” Moyer said. “If I can give the team enough innings, enough quality innings to put us in a position to win games, that’s what it’s about.” His phone hasn’t stopped ringing as teammates and friends call to congratulate him. In all, he’s received more than

100 texts and 20 voice messages. And he will get back to everyone, just as soon as all the hubbub and hoopla die down. “I pull for him. I think he’s amazing,” said Philadelphia manager Charlie Manuel, who had Moyer for parts of five seasons when he was in the Phillies rotation. “I have a lot of respect for Jamie. I’ve known him basically his whole career.”

Holiday’s hostility Irving’s return not enough as 76ers crush Cavaliers CLEVELAND (AP) — During a break in the second quarter, Philadelphia coach Doug Collins pulled Jrue Holliday aside and ordered his guard to be more aggressive. Holiday listened and got downright hostile. He made five 3-pointers and scored 19 of his 24 points in the third quarter as the 76ers kept their hold on the Eastern Conference’s final playoff spot with a 10387 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night. Holiday dropped four of his 3s during a stunning 242 run when the Sixers blew open a tight game. Andre Iguodala added 19 points as Philadelphia snapped a three-game losing streak, won for just the third time in 10 games and increased its lead over Milwaukee to 2 12 games. The Sixers needed someone to get hot. Holiday heated up just in time. “Once he got it going, he was masterful,” Collins said. “He got upset. He thought he got hit a couple of times on drives. I’ve ordered some “ticked off” cream for the rest of the year.” The Sixers play their final four on the road, including a matchup next week against the Bucks, who lost 121-112 to Washington. Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving scored 9 points in his first game back after missing nine straight with a sprained shoulder. Samardo Samuels and Lester Hudson scored 15 apiece for Cleveland, which has lost 18 of 22 and is running on fumes. Iguodala added 13 rebounds and Elton Brand had 12 points for the Sixers, who came in just 11-21 since Feb. 13 when they are among the Eastern Conference’s top teams. It’s been all downhill since. However, Holiday applied the brakes for one night. Antawn Jamison’s basket with 7:53 left in the third brought the Cavs, who lost by 39 on Tuesday night in Detroit and have been getting blown out regularly, even at 57-all. Moments later, Cleveland trailed by 22, shot down by Holiday. His 3-pointer made it 6259 and the third-year guard made three more long-range shots as the Sixers went on their 24-2 run over a 5:21 stretch to open an 81-59 lead. Philadelphia scored 19 straight with ease during

Penguins stay alive, rout Flyers Rangers even up series, 2-2


Cleveland Cavaliers’ Lester Hudson (14) jumps to the basket against Philadelphia 76ers’ Spencer Hawes in the second quarter Wednesday in Cleveland. The 76ers won 103-87. the shocking outburst before Cleveland’s Samardo Samuels finally ended the Cavs’ drought. Then Holiday drilled another 3 for good measure, making it 84-64. Goodnight, Cleveland. Drive safely. “You kind of feel unstoppable,” Holiday said his mindset during his torrid streak. “Every shot’s falling. There was one three that kind of popped out and went five feet up in the air and it still fell in.” Holiday went 6 of 6 on 3pointers and didn’t play in the fourth quarter as Collins got some needed rest for his starters, playing their third game in three nights and faced with finishing the season on the road, a tough schedule for any team never mind one battling for the playoffs.

“It was a great win, much needed,” Collins said. “Hopefully we can get a little rest. That third game in three nights is not easy to do. All good stuff.” The Cavs ended a stretch of seven games in nine nights and look exhausted. They did get Irving back, but only for 19 minutes. Cavs coach Byron Scott admitted having some serious apprehension about letting Irving play, but relented to the 20-year-old’s wishes after the presumptive NBA rookie of the year was cleared by team doctors. Scott, who will keep a limit on his young star’s minutes, thought Irving “was a little rusty” but was pleased with his overall performance. Irving didn’t wear a protective sleeve on his shoulder, which he first hurt on

March 30. He gave the shoulder a good test in the second quarter, when he was sent by sprawling by Elton Brand into the padded basket stanchion after missing a layup. Irving spent a moment laying on his back before being helped to his feet, a sight that drew a smile from Scott. “My heart kind of dropped a little,” Scott said. “He got right back up, which is a great sign to show me that he was fine. He didn’t grab his shoulder or anything. Matter of fact, he started laughing a little bit when Elton grabbed him and asked, ‘Are you OK.’” Irving didn’t mind taking the fall. “It was a welcome-back kind of moment,” he said. “It was good to get it out of the way early.”

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Pushed to the brink of a sweep, Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Jordan Staal pushed back with a vengeance, helping the Penguins score nine goals in the first two periods in a 10-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday in their opening-round playoff series. Staal had a hat trick, Malkin scored his first two goals of the series and Crosby added one to help the Penguins cut the series deficit to 3-1. Game 5 is Friday in Pittsburgh. Marc-Andre Fleury settled down after a shaky first period and had his best game of the series, easily outplaying counterpart Ilya Bryzgalov. The Flyers led 3-2 when the Penguins reeled off seven straight goals to win the most lopsided game of the series. The Penguins were the first team to score at least 10 goals in a playoff game since the Los Angeles Kings scored 12 against the Calgary Flames on April 10, 1990, according to STATS LLC. Claude Giroux, Kimmo Timonen and Jakub Voracek all scored for the Flyers, who blew their chance at a stunning sweep of the 108-point Penguins. Bryzgalov, shaky all series, was at his worst in Game 4. He was yanked for Sergei Bobrovsky after allowing his fifth goal of the game. There’s little chance of a goalie controversy in Philadelphia, though. After earning huge cheers for stopping his first shot, Bobrovsky was worse than Bryzgalov, allowing four goals the rest of the second period. Fleury made it stand the rest of the way and

started to make up for a miserable first three games that saw him allow 17 goals. Then again, Pittsburgh’s offense was so potent, not even Fleury could blow this one. Long despised in Philadelphia, Crosby scored his second goal of the series on a deflection that tied the game at 3-all in the first. Staal followed with a goal from the slot for a 4-3 lead and the Penguins never looked back. The Penguins were short-handed in their last-gasp effort at trying to stave off elimination. Forward Arron Asham served the first game of a four-game suspension; and James Neal and Craig Adams served a one-game ban for their actions in Game 3. Defenseman Paul Martin also sat out with an undisclosed injury. Trying to stir the pot of an already emotional series, the Flyers showed league disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan’s video explanations of the Asham and Neal suspensions. Rangers 3, Senators 2 OTTAWA — Kyle Turris scored at 2:42 of overtime to give the Ottawa Senators a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Wednesday night, tying the Eastern Conference series at two games apiece. Milan Michalek and Sergei Gonchar scored in the second period for the Senators to erase a 2-0 deficit, and Craig Anderson stopped 31 shots. Anton Stralman and Ryan Callahan had power-plays goals early in the first period for the Rangers. Henrik Lundqvist made 28 saves.

Colts quiet about who will be No. 1 pick INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts have decided who to take with the No. 1 draft pick. They’re just not planning to let the secret out until April 26. After months of speculation, scouting and scrutinizing, Colts general manager Ryan Grigson finally told reporters Wednesday that the Colts have a plan for their first No. 1 overall selection in 14 years. “We’ve known for a little

while. We’ve done all our due diligence,” Grigson said during a 30-minute news conference. “Unless there’s an unforeseen problem or something like that, we know what we’re doing.” Team owner Jim Irsay has repeatedly said the team will choose Peyton Manning’s successor, presumably either Stanford’s Andrew Luck or Baylor’s Robert Griffin III, the Heisman Trophy winner. If the Colts take Luck, the

Washington Redskins are expected to take Griffin with the second pick next Thursday night. Luck was expected to go No. 1 in 2011 before returning to school for his fourth college season. His resume looks like an exact replica of Manning’s — both stayed in school one year longer than expected, both finished as Heisman Trophy runnerups and both had fathers who played quarterback in the NFL.

While the Colts sent a larger contingent of scouts to Griffin’s pro day in Texas than Luck’s pro day at Stanford, Luck had a personal workout for the Colts and traveled to Indianapolis for a personal interview. Griffin was advised by his agent to do neither and, apparently, it wasn’t the only reason Griffin didn’t come to town. “You get to a point where you know what you’re going to do,” Grigson said.

Grigson would not say whether the Colts have started negotiating with either player. In an email sent to The Associated Press, Luck’s agent, Will Wilson, declined to comment on whether the Colts had told him of their decision or whether contract talks had begun. Luck’s father, Oliver, also did not provide those answers. Luck has been attending classes at Stanford, and is trying to

finish one architectural course that is offered only in the spring. “I have not had any communication with any of the folks with the Colts. I stay out of all that,” Oliver Luck said in a phone interview. “And I’ll keep my conversations with Andrew private.” Whether the Colts would start talking about a contract over the next week, in hopes of having a deal in place before next Thursday, remains unclear.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 in her new role while assisting the program she guided to eight national titles since taking over in 1974. Tennessee said that Summitt’s responsibilities will include helping with recruiting, watching practice, joining staff meetings, helping coaches analyze practice and games and advising the Southeastern Conference on women’s basketball issues and mentoring players. “Pat’s vision for the game of women’s basketball and her relentless drive pushed the game to a new level and made it possible for the rest of us to accomplish what we did,” UConn coach Geno Auriemma said in a statement. “In her new role, I’m sure she will continue to make significant impacts to the University of Tennessee and to the game of women’s basketball as a whole. “I am thrilled for (Warlick) as this opportunity is well deserved and Pat will be a huge asset to her moving forward,” he said. Warlick, a three-time AllAmerican who played for Summitt, was her assistant for 27 years. Hart said he watched Warlick grow this season under what he called

Tennessee head coach Pat Summitt, right, associate head coach Holly Warlick, center, watch their team during a game against UT-Martin in Rosemont, Ill March 17. “unique circumstances” and that she is deserving of the head job. “Her mentor will be available for insight and advice, but this is Holly’s team now,” Hart said. Warlick said she was thankful for all Summitt has done in preparing her for this opportunity as her coach, mentor and friend. “We will work as hard as we possibly can with the goal of hanging more banners in Thompson-Boling Arena,” Warlick said. One of Summitt’s former stars, Tamika Catchings, saw the news on TV during a meeting. “Everyone in the back of their minds was thinking this was going to happen anyway. Holly will do a good job,” she said. Last season, while Summitt devoted more attention to her health, Warlick took the lead during games and handled

postgame interviews, while the entire staff handled recruiting and practices. Even so, Summitt still managed to put on her trademark icy stare a time or two during the tournament. “As I’ve said many times, Pat Summitt is a pioneer in basketball,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “Her amazing career accomplishments are among an elite group of leaders. Very few people leave a lasting legacy in their chosen professions and Coach Summitt has done just that at the University of Tennessee and in women’s basketball. She raised the level of commitment, pride and notoriety of her sport. I am honored to call her a friend.” Summitt’s diagnosis came during one of the Lady Vols’ most disappointing stretches — by Summitt’s lofty standards, anyway. Tennessee hasn’t won a national championship since

2008 and hasn’t even reached the Final Four, which ties for its longest such drought in program history. Tennessee’s five seniors were part of the team that lost in the first round of the 2009 NCAA tournament, the only time in school history the Lady Vols had bowed out on the first weekend. Those seniors promised they would win a ninth national championship this season — not just for Summitt, but as center Vicki Baugh put it, ” … for everyone who has Alzheimer’s.” But they couldn’t make it back to the Final Four, losing to Baylor and Brittney Griner, a player Summitt couldn’t convince to come to Knoxville. Summitt’s career ends with a 1,098-208 record, 16 r e g u l a r- s e a s o n Southeastern Conference championships and 16 SEC tournament titles.

Florida. “The offense, the zone reads, the screens, everything like that just getting it in the open field that’s a good fit for me.” At Florida, Meyer made a point of getting the ball to his biggest threats. That meant putting wide receiver Percy Harvin, now with the Minnesota Vikings, all over the place in the backfield, out wide, in the slot, taking direct snaps. The tradition at Ohio State is for a quarterback sometimes a pocket thrower, sometimes a combo runner and passer to hand the ball to a back who is lined up behind him. Big linemen clear space, and the back runs to daylight. Simple. Herron, despite a sixgame suspension for NCAA violations, rushed for 675 yards and seven touch-

downs on plays that could just as easily have been drawn up by Woody Hayes back in the 1960s. But that wasn’t the playbook at Florida. Harvin, a tall, lanky sprinter, flourished in the system as did the Gators, who won two national championships running it. Quarterbacks Tim Tebow and Chris Leak threw the ball but were also used as another running option. “In this system, in the Urban Meyer system, playmakers touch the ball. And we’re going to make the system fit our playmakers,” Drayton said. “We feel as if we’ve got ballcarriers here; they’re time-proven, they’re game-ready, they’ve been in game situations before.
