A man applauds as police leave the scene of the arrest of a suspect of the Boston Marathon bombings in Watertown, Mass., Friday. Two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing killed an MIT police officer, injured a transit officer in a firefight and threw explosive devices at police during their getaway attempt.

Drama begins with shootout, ends with capture of suspect WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) — A 19-year-old Massachusetts college student wanted in the Boston Marathon bombing was captured hiding out in a boat parked in a backyard Friday and his older brother lay dead in a furious 24hour drama that transfixed the nation and paralyzed the Boston area with fear. The bloody endgame came four days after the bombing and just a day after the FBI released surveillance-camera images of two young men suspected of planting the pressure-cooker explosives that ripped through the crowd at the marathon finish line, killing three people and wounding more than 180. The two men were identified by authorities and relatives as ethnic Chechens from southern Russia who had been in the U.S. for about a decade and were believed to be



living in Cambridge, Mass. But investigators gave no details on the motive for the bombing. Early Friday morning, 26-yearold Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a ferocious gun battle and car chase during which he and his younger brother hurled explosives at police from a stolen car, authorities said. The younger brother managed to escape. During the getaway attempt, the brothers killed an MIT police-

man and severely wounded another officer, authorities said. After a tense, all-day manhunt and house-to-house search by thousands of SWAT team officers with rifles and armored vehicles, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was cornered in a homeowner’s yard, where he exchanged gunfire with police while holed up in a boat, authorities said. He was taken away on a stretcher and was hospitalized in serious condition with unspecified injuries, police said. Just before 9 p.m., Boston police announced via Twitter that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was in custody. They later wrote: “CAPTURED!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won. Suspect in custody.”

BOSTON — Jules Conner went to Boston looking to get away for a few days, visit some friends and maybe take in a Red Sox game. She had no idea she would be walking into a war zone. “I made these plans a few months ago — obviously I didn’t know it was going to turn out like this,” the Troy resident said. Thursday, Conner arrived in Boston, just three days after the Boston Marathon bombings. When one of the suspects in the bombings was killed early Friday and a second suspect escaped, forcing a citywide manhunt, Conner found herself — along with the rest of Boston — on lock down. “I was actually out (Thursday) night when it happened — I got a notification on my phone,” Conner said. “It wasn’t on TV, so we asked the bartender to change the channel so we could watch what was going on.” Conner was out getting breakfast at a Dunkin’ Donuts in Boston Friday morning with her friends. She was standing outside the store on her cell phone speaking to a newspaper reporter when she was asked to go inside the store and get off the street. She and her friends were the last ones served before the store closed for the rest of the day as the manhunt for suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev kicked into high gear. “I think I’m less affected by this than the people who live here — but I get to leave,” said Conner. “I

Annual Kiwanis Pancake Day is today Staff report


The Kiwanis Club of Troy is having its annual Pancake Day from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at Staunton Grange Hall, 1530 N. Market St. The event raises money for causes both in the community and across the globe. “Internationally, we contribute to helping to eradicate neonatal tetanus in 29 Third World countries,” said Kiwanis President

Bobby Phillips. “Locally, we buy books for the Head Start Program and have a Bringing Up Grades (BUG) program at Forest and Kyle elementary schools where we award kids each quarter who have brought up a grade or maintain straight A’s.” The club also donates coats and other items to various organizations

in the winter and also provides scholarships to graduating highschool seniors, among other activities, Phillips added. Today’s all-you-can-eat breakfast includes pancakes and various toppings, along with sausage, coffee, juices and milk. Various items will be raffled off at the event as well. Two Mumford & Sons concert tickets will be a part of the raffle, with tickets being sold through June 26, when the winner will be

announced. Tickets may be purchased from any member. Tickets for Pancake Day are $6 for adults, $3 for kids 6-12 and free for 5 and younger. Pancake Day is one of the largest fundraisers for the Kiwanis Club of Troy. Phillips encouraged Troy residents to “like” the Kiwanis of Troy page on Facebook. For more information, visit

In suburban Boston, thanks and jubilation WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) — Celebrations erupted in suburban Boston, downtown and beyond Friday night as the capture of the remaining marathon bombing suspect was announced in a tweet from police. In the Watertown neighborhood where 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev engaged in a firefight with police while hiding out in a parked boat, dozens of people at a police barricade cheered and applauded as law enforcement officers and emergency responders left the scene.

“Never in my wildest dreams did I think that this would result in a shootout in Watertown,” said Sheamus McGovern, of Belmont, Mass., who was among the crowd of people gathered outside Mount Auburn Hospital, where Tsarnaev was taken after his capture. Early Friday morning, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a gun battle and car chase during which he and his younger brother hurled explosives at police from a stolen car, authorities said. During the getaway

attempt, the brothers killed an MIT policeman and severely wounded another officer, authorities said. The younger brother managed to escape and was found in the boat about a mile away hours later. McGovern had been startled overnight Friday during a when he heard “what sounded like firecrackers, last night after one, and then pure bedlam.” He could hear the helicopters overhead all day. “It’s just a huge relief to be able to get outdoors. Another day of that, I don’t

want to start getting angry,” The jubilation was widespread. The mayor of Boston, which was largely paralyzed during the manhunt Friday, tweeted, “We got him!” And at the home of the New York Mets, fans leapt to their feet and cheered when the news spread during a game against the Washington Nationals. Hundreds of people marched down Commonwealth Avenue, chanting “USA” and singing the Red Sox anthem “Sweet Caroline” as they headed

toward Boston Common. Police blocked traffic along part of the street to allow for the impromptu parade. Earlier, the mood was somber. On Boylston Street, three blocks from the site of the marathon explosions on Monday, several dozen people gathered almost in complete silence. Some were crying. Boston University student Aaron Wengertsman, 19, wrapped himself in an American flag as a silent crowd gathered. He was on the marathon route a mile from the finish line when the bombs exploded.

Police said three other people were taken into custody for questioning at an off-campus housing complex at the University of the Massachusetts at Dartmouth where the younger man may have lived. Up until the younger man’s capture, it was looking like a grim day for police. As night fell, they

announced that they were scaling back the hunt and lifting the stay-indoors order across Boston and some of its suburbs because they had come up emptyhanded. But then a break came in a Watertown neighborhood when a homeowner saw blood on his boat, pulled back the tarp and saw the bloody suspect

inside, police said. Chechnya has been the scene of two wars between Russian forces and separatists since 1994, in which tens of thousands were killed in heavy Russian bombing. That spawned an Islamic insurgency that has carried out deadly bombings in Russia and the region, although not in the West.

The search for the younger brother all but paralyzed the Boston area. Officials shut down all mass transit, including Amtrak trains to New York, advised businesses not to open, and warned close to 1 million people in the entire city and some of its suburbs to stay inside and unlock their doors only for uniformed police.

Capture ■ CONTINUED FROM 1 A cheer went up from a crowd of bystanders in Watertown. “Everyone wants him alive,” said Kathleen Paolillo, a teacher. Boston Mayor Tom Menino tweeted “We got him,” along with a photo of himself talking to the police commissioner.



■ CONTINUED FROM 1 “She was well-mannered and I knew she’d be a great therapy dog,” Bechtol said. “We’ve been coming to the library for three years — we love it.” Children’s and Young Adult Services Coordinator Nancy Hargrove said the Paws to Read program is one of the unique reading programs the library offers and is popular with children. “It allows the kids to

practicing reading out loud without interruption or criticism,” Hargrove said. “The kids really enjoy reading to Tina and it’s great practice to build their reading skills at their own pace.” Hargrove also said the “Paws to Read’ program with Tina allows children to read in a one-on-one setting. “The kids really enjoy reading to Tina and it works because they are reading in a relaxed atmosphere,” Hargrove said.

■ CONTINUED FROM 1 know it’s really affecting my friends. And their kids are really freaking out. I’m planning on coming home Tuesday — hopefully it will all unfold by then and I’ll be able to come home.” For former Troy resident and Troy Daily News reporter Aprill Brandon, Boston is home. She moved to the city several years ago with her husband Ryan Huddle — also a former Troy Daily News employee — and was along the marathon route Monday when the bombs went off. While she doesn’t live near Watertown, the area law enforcement agencies were blanketing in the search for Tsarnaev, she still could detect a strong police presence. “It’s quiet in my neighborhood,” she said. “Very quiet. It’s almost eerily quiet. Nobody is out on the streets. We’ve all been told to stay in our houses and keep our doors locked and not to open it unless it was for a uniformed law enforcement official with identification. There have been helicopters flying overhead all day and you can hear the sirens off in

the distance. We’re just sitting here watching it unfold on television. It’s almost like it’s too quiet.” Brandon’s husband — who works at the Boston Globe — did go into work Friday despite the lock down. “I did tear up a little bit when he left,” Brandon said. “But having worked at a newspaper, I know how it is. I know he has to do his job. At this point, I just want it to be over.” Brandon, who said she has been going through a number of emotions since Monday, is scared by the fact two suspects were essentially able to shut down one of the largest cities in the United States. “It is a scary thing that two tiny, tiny men can do this,” she said. “I’m trying to keep my anger at bay. There are a lot of good people in this city. And the way law enforcement has handled this — they should throw them a parade after all of this. Whatever reason these people have for doing this — it’s not nearly good enough. Thinking about it just brings up feelings of anger. “We all just want this to be over with.”

The workshop will cover topics such as deer, geese, rabbits, skunks, bats, moles, voles, coons and chucks. The wildlife specialists will present a perspective of wildlife related educational information to help landowners know their options for managing wildlife damage with the right techniques and strategies. Many species are forced to thrive in cities and suburban areas while more and more real estate development infringes on wildlife acreage.

Question: Which presents a bigger threat to national security, North Korea or terrorists?

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

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


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

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP East Oregonian of Pendleton, Ore., on regulation of genetically modified crops: Overheard from an Oregon legislator as he exited a committee meeting at the Capitol: “Are we regulating religion or agriculture?” That’s a good question, and has probably crossed the minds of many legislators in Oregon, Washington state, Idaho and elsewhere as they continue to be approached by true believers who want to ban genetically engineered crops or label food made from them. When asked to back up their arguments with facts, they really don’t say much more than they don’t like genetically modified food and they fear it will do something or other to someone or other. … In fact, the scientific evidence is quite the opposite. No peerreviewed studies show health-related problems with genetically modified food. None. Zero. Zilch. Let us be clear. We support all agriculture. We support organic agriculture, just as we support conventional agriculture and the cultivation of genetically modified crops. Our “feeling” — and the facts support it — is that all types of agriculture can and should be able to co-exist. Farmers should have the right to choose which crops they grow without unneeded interference from the government or anywhere else. But they should also act responsibly when a neighbor brings up a legitimate concern such as cross-pollination. If a problem were to emerge, surely individual farmers have the common sense and ability to work out an equitable solution. We’d like to say that the issue begins and ends in the U.S. and our wants, but it doesn’t. It really comes down to enabling agriculture to continue to feed a growing world population that, given the choice between eating and starving, would just as soon eat, whether the food is genetically modified or not. The Guardian of London on the potential for future food shortages: American households, according to a speaker at the American Chemical Society’s meeting in New Orleans on Sunday, throw away 40 percent of the food they buy. … Globally, the story is much the same. A study by the UK Institution of Mechanical Engineers found that somewhere between 30 percent and 50 percent of all the food grown in the world never makes it to the plate. Up to 2 billion tons of food is devoured or tainted by rats, mice and other pests, or perishes in granaries, or is discarded by buyers because it doesn’t meet supermarket standards. Up to 1 billion people are malnourished or hungry, morning, noon and night. That so much food is grown, distributed and sold every day is a reminder that free markets can effectively deliver whatever people can afford. That so much is shamefully wasted when so many people go hungry is a reminder that free markets do not and cannot trade in what George Orwell, in the hungry depression years, called justice and common decency. But food security is not just a problem for the poor. It will become, increasingly, a problem for everybody. That is because of population growth. Every day, there are another 220,000 mouths to feed. By 2030, the world will be home to eight billion people; by 2050, there will be nine billion. … There is only so much you can expect from photosynthesis. That per capita income for hundreds of millions of once-poor people in Asia and Africa has risen is good news. The bad news is that the world appetite for meat is also rising, which pushes up the price and reduces the supply of wheat, rice, maize and other staples for the poorer communities. Huge tracts of the planet are already experiencing water stress. The oil that fuels the world’s tractors is a finite resource; cheap phosphorus fertilizer cannot be guaranteed indefinitely. So, as human numbers multiply, the food on the plate becomes harder to serve. According to the U.N., 2013 could turn out very badly. Climate change, too, is likely to compound problems, with increasing extremes of flood, storm and heat. North American harvests were hit in 2012 by drought and record heat waves. Global grain reserves are already low, and a second disastrous harvest in the northern hemisphere could condemn hundreds of millions of crowded and angry city dwellers to poverty and hunger, with increasing likelihood of food riots.

Don’t miss the latest parenting trend — unsharing When it comes to our kids, it’s safe to say my husband and I are a little fruity. No, literally, we named our children after fruit — Pearyn and Braeburn. While we don’t purposely eschew the norm, the older our children get the more I realize how differently we handle a lot of things. For starters, we’re vegan. And no, at 3 years of age we don’t let Pearyn decide that she can eat 15 cupcakes riddled with eggs, milk and lard, just like you probably don’t let little Jimmy eat 15 cupcakes to begin with. We feed our children a diet that we think is the healthiest for our family — both morally and nutritionally. We don’t spank our kids. It’s not so much that I ever found myself taking an actual stance for or against spanking, I just remember how utterly terribly I felt the one time I did swat Pearyn on the butt and she reiterated by smacking her dolly on the butt (and two or three boys in preschool who were “misbehaving.”) We co-sleep. This basically means that for

Amanda Stewart Troy Daily News Columnist more than nine months now (actually, ever since Pearyn got sick from salmonella poisoning and would have Exorcist-likevomiting episodes every single night) our little girl grabs her shuteye right smack dab in the middle of mommy and daddy’s big bed. Some nights we move her back to her own bed, some nights I enjoy cuddling my little darling while she still wants me to. I know, I know, you’re probably wondering how Braeburn even came into the world if we have our toddler wedged between us on a nightly basis. It’s weird, I know, I’m not saying it’s right for everyone, I’m just saying for us, right now, it’s working. When it comes to sharing

— Virginia K. Duncan Troy

though, the basic principle that being a decent human being means learning how to let others use our personal things, we’re all for that. We are share-aholics in this household. You’re probably trying to figure out who the heck wouldn’t be teaching their child to share. Well dear readers, an internet mom by the name of Very Bloggy Beth recently wrote an incredibly controversial and poignant post on how she — and all the parents of her daycare co-op — aren’t teaching their children about sharing. In fact, they’re teaching their children not to share. Because, you know, asking little Betsy to share her stuffed monkey with little Billy probably will traumatize her for the rest of her life, not to mention make her a doormat who doesn’t know how to stand up for herself. Wait, what? Seriously. We’re all parents. We’re all trying to do what we think is right for our children. We’re doing our best. We want them to eat their vegetables, we want them to get calcium and build strong bones, but most of all, we want them to be good

people. Our biggest role as parents is to make sure our children make it out alive. And as our runnerup role, we try to teach our children to be good. I’m all for trying different parenting methods. I’m all for the evolution of what it means to be a mom, be a child, be a baby. I’m all for updating and broadening our views when it comes to our discipline tactics, our room arrangements and heck, even what kind of diaper we use to collect our child’s bowel movements. But if the big movement of 2013 is to teach my daughter that she doesn’t have to let her brother see her stuffed giraffe — ever — I have to admit I’m willing to hang around in the past for a little bit longer. Maybe forcing our children to share sets them up to believe their own needs aren’t the most important. But what does teaching them to purposely not share teach them?

A bucket for placing money for support of residents and first responders is seen here at the Little Czech Bakery in West,Texas, Friday.The bodies of 14 people have been recovered after an enormous Texas fertilizer plant explosion that demolished surrounding neighborhoods for blocks and left about 200 other people injured, authorities said Friday.

Texas town grieves for dead first-responders Investigators combing through debris WEST, Texas (AP) — Buck Uptmor didn’t have to go to West Fertilizer Co. when the fire started. He wasn’t a firefighter like his brother and cousin, who raced toward the plant. But a ranch of horses next to the flames needed to be moved to safety. “He went to help a friend,” said Joyce Marek, Uptmor’s aunt. “And then it blew.” Two days after the fertilizer facility exploded in a blinding fireball, authorities announced Friday that they had recovered 14 bodies, confirming for the first time an exact number of people killed. Grieving relatives filed into a church offering comfort for families, as volunteers nearby handed out food to those still unable to return to homes damaged by the massive blast. Ten of the dead were first-responders including five from the West Volunteer Fire Department and four emergency medics, West Mayor Tommy Muska said. The dead included Uptmor and Joey Pustejovsky, the city secretary who doubled as a member of the West Volunteer Fire Department. A captain of the Dallas Fire Department who was off-duty at the time but responded to the fire to help also died. The explosion was strong enough to register as a small earthquake and could be heard for many miles across the Texas prairie. It demolished nearly everything for several

blocks around the plant. More than 200 people were hurt, and Muska said five were first-responders among those who remained hospitalized Friday. The first-responders “knew it was dangerous. They knew that thing could go up at any time,” said Ronnie Sykora, who was Pustejovsky’s deacon at St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church. “But they also knew that if they could extinguish that fire before it went up, that they could save tens of lives, hundreds of lives. That’s why they were in there.” Following a tour of the rubble Friday, Gov. Rick Perry told reporters the search-and-rescue phase for anyone still trapped was largely finished. He said the state would offer help to the 29-member local fire department that had been “basically wiped out.” “To the first-responders: I cannot say thank you enough,” Perry said. Earlier in the day, Edward Smith, a volunteer chaplain for the Dallas Police Department, counseled firefighters at West’s fire station. “Right now, the general public might be saying, ‘Well, why aren’t they talking about this?’” Smith said of the firefighters. “They don’t necessarily even want to talk about it. They’re holding out hope.” In a town of just 2,800 people, everyone here knew someone affected by the explosion. Officials offered reassurances Friday about the

60 or so people listed as unaccounted for after the blast. McLennan County Judge Scott Felton said many people on the list probably lost their homes and have simply been difficult to locate since the Wednesday evening accident. “I think we’re going to eliminate 99 percent” of those listed, he said. The fertilizer facility stores and distributes anhydrous ammonia, a fertilizer that can be injected into soil. It also mixes other fertilizers. Plant owner Donald Adair released a statement saying he never would forget the “selfless sacrifice of first-responders who died trying to protect all of us.” One of the plant employees also was killed responding to the fire, Adair said. Federal investigators and the state fire marshal’s office began inspecting the blast site Friday to collect evidence that may point to a cause. Franceska Perot, a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said Friday evening that investigators still were combing through debris and would continue today. Residents cannot return to their homes until investigators are finished, Perot said. She did not have a timetable on when that might be. “We’re moving as fast as we can,” Perot said. “We don’t want them working at night because things can be missed.”

Woman embraces faith, masters embroidery WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Shirley Marriott’s faith helped her through a divorce and some tough financial times that followed in the early 1980s. It got her through triplebypass surgery eight years ago and a diagnosis of aggressive breast cancer two years ago. But who would have guessed that God might also lend a hand with her embroidery? Marriott, 78, is a professional jewelry designer whose work earned her recognition as artist of the year in 1993 by the Sawtooth Center for Visual Art. She’s also an accomplished painter. But she humbly admits to asking for divine guidance when she encounters an especially vexing problem such as the cloth puckering on her embroidery. She’ll say a prayer at bedtime after working in her den, sometimes as late as midnight. “So far my prayers have been answered,” she said. “The problem may be solved at 3 a.m.” Her embroidery projects are all about faith. She designs intricate embroidery for liturgical paraments — cloth used to cover pulpits, as pastor’s


“The Sunnyside Stitchers” talk during their meeting in Winston-Salem, N.C., March 13. “The Sunnyside Stitchers” produce and sell hand-crafted embroidered decorations, all of their proceeds are donated to Sunnyside Ministries. stoles and as Bible markers. She leads a team of 10 to 12 volunteers in the painstaking process of bringing her vision to life, stitch by stitch. The group’s first project was a gift for their own church, Home Moravian, in Old Salem. Their work since then has been sold, with the profits going to Sunnyside Ministry, a Moravian outreach that provides food, clothing and other basic life necessities to neighborhoods in southern WinstonSalem.

The group — appropriately calling themselves the Sunnyside Stitchers — has raised about $4,000 for the ministry so far. “We get so energized,” Marriott said of the group. “Most of the time after we have a meeting, I don’t sleep that night because I’m revving to go.” Designs for the paraments and other liturgical cloths can be tailored to a buyer’s specifications. For the gift to Home Moravian, the Stitchers created para-

ments in colors for each of the liturgical seasons — for example, purple for Lent, white for Easter and red for Pentecost — and embroidered designs that include a lamb, a Moravian star, a chalice and flames. The handmade quality means that the cloths are expensive — prices start at $1,200 for a single parament and $500 for two Bible markers. The work is labor-intensive. It takes a skilled hand and an eye for details so tiny

she said. “We’re inventing the wheel every day. “I’ve been known to say a few bad words,” she admitted. “Some days I could scream.” For most of her life, Marriott didn’t even do embroidery. She had done some embroidering as a young girl and was persuaded to take on a project creating paraments for the Moravian Theological Seminary in Bethlehem, Pa. Her former minister at Home Moravian heard about that and suggested she could form a group to do something similar here as a way for people to live out their faith. Marriott knew the work involved and was skeptical that there would be much interest. “I said they’ve have to be crazy,” she recalled. “I didn’t think that young people would do it today.” To her surprise, 12 other women came forward to help. They all soon found their niche in the project: embroiderers, bead makers, outliner, constructionist. The group welcomes new members — it’s not limited to Moravians or, for that matter, to women. Marriott said she figures if they could find just one brave man to join, others would follow.

that many casual observers wouldn’t even notice them. It’s not a job for the easily distracted — or the impatient. Marriott’s design work for a parament may take three months or longer, then the group’s effort on embroidery and related work another nine months. Then the bead makers work for months, adding one by one the gold beads that create a fringe on the cloths. Marriott first does the design on watercolor paper, then traces it onto the fabric. She likes to work with fine wool purchased from Holland & Sherry, a British clothmaker established in 1836. The wool sells for $100 to $200 a yard. An appliqu of a material such as silk shantung may go onto the wool, then the embroidering begins, sometimes in gold floss. The Stitchers pass the work around, often working individually on an item at home. They get together as a group about once a month to chart their progress, discuss any technical issues that have come up and make plans for their next project. Sometimes, the work is so taxing that it can aggravate even Marriott. “Every piece we’ve done has its own set of problems,”

Stop trying to turn Sam into ‘Mr. Right’ Dear Annie: I'm a 70-year-old woman, still attractive and athletic. I have been dating "Sam," age 74, for nearly three years. When we met online, I clearly stated that I wanted to get married in the near future and that I had three cats and wanted a man who loves animals. Sam is a nice, educated man. He treats me well, and we do a lot of different things. However, he still talks with his ex-wife and exgirlfriend regularly. He says his ex-girlfriend is lonely and has a sad life. I could deal with that, but his ex-wife was the "love of his life." He says they have a lot in common and she is fun to talk to. Occasionally, they see each other. I don't like it, and neither does her boyfriend. Sam is a great guy in many ways, but I am having a hard time adjusting to this. He insists that his ex is in his past, but isn't talking to someone on the phone every other week considered a current relationship? The other problem is that Sam is not nice to my cats. He treats them coldly, and this hurts me. Should I just ignore this? We do go to a lot of places and have fun, and we both love playing golf. — Sad in California Dear Sad: You have unrealistic expectations about Sam. He enjoys your company, but he's not ready to settle down. He wants the freedom to stay in touch with his exes, he doesn't much care for cats, and he's not interested in marriage. There is nothing wrong with accepting Sam as he is and enjoying the fun times you have together. Otherwise, please stop trying to turn him into Mr. Right, and look for a man who better meets your requirements. Dear Annie: I was hospitalized with pneumonia and then diagnosed with COPD and atrial fibrillation, for which I was put on daily meds. I am also diabetic. I am now home and taking breathing treatments and allergy shots, plus my normal heart and COPD meds. I find that I cannot tolerate strong smells: perfume, paint, fireplaces, scented candles, etc. The problem is my husband, "Carl." He is a smoker. He had a heart attack several years ago, and we both quit at that time. I haven't had a cigarette since, but he started up again. He doesn't smoke in the house, but he cannot get it through his head that when he comes in after smoking, he still has a strong cigarette odor, and I frequently have severe coughing attacks, shortness of breath and chest pain. He apologizes, but won't quit. My doctor has suggested several options to help Carl quit, but nothing has an effect. I know my future includes being on oxygen. I am 65, and these constant attacks are wearing me down. We've been married for 25 years, and I love Carl. I have a difficult time thinking that he's so selfish. Any suggestions? — He Just Doesn't Care Dear Doesn't Care: We think Carl cares, but he's so addicted to tobacco that he's unable to contemplate quitting. First, ask Carl if you can go with him to speak to his doctor. Then consider an area of the house where Carl can change his clothes and/or shower before being around you. He also can try electronic cigarettes, which still pose a health risk, but his clothes won't reek as much. But if Carl refuses to protect you from his addiction, one of you may need to leave in order for you to maintain your health. Sorry. Dear Annie: I read the letter from "Heartbroken," whose daughter committed suicide and whose mother is unsympathetic. The only people who truly understand what it is to lose a child are other parents who have. Thank you for suggesting The Compassionate Friends ( It is a beautiful organization filled with parents who care. We will give her the hugs and compassion she needs. — Green Bay, Wis.

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:


How can I get the gas smell out of clothes? Dear Heloise: Do you have any hints for removing gasoline smell from clothing? I have run them through the washer multiple times, but nothing has worked! Help! — Sandi L. in Montana As you have found out, just washing gasoline-soaked clothing — especially heavy jeans or work shirts — does not get the clothing completely odor- or stain-free. Since gasoline is a petroleum product, it can leave an oily residue and still smell, even if washed several times. To be 100 percent safe, the clothes should be hung outside to “air out” for at least 24 hours, until the smell is completely gone, before washing the clothing. If they are really sat-

Hints from Heloise Columnist urated, you should first hose them off outside. Since there is a slight risk of combustion (fire) because of the potential fumes coming from the washing machine, do not put them in the washer until you can no longer smell the gasoline. After airing the clothing outside, wash the items alone on the hottest setting that’s safe for the

fabric, and at the highest water level. Add 1/4 cup of ammonia and a little extra detergent. Do not also run the dryer with wet clothes while the soiled clothes are in the washer, in case the gas fumes linger. You must let them air-dry and see if the gasoline smell is gone. If not, repeat the steps. DO NOT put the clothes in the dryer until the stain and smell are completely gone! — Heloise AUTO-ROTATION Dear Heloise: My smartphone auto-rotates the screen depending on which way I am holding it. Is there a way to disable this? — A Reader, via email

You can try this: Double-click the home button (the same way you would to close applications). This should bring up a multitasking bar on your screen. Swipe across the icons from the left to the right, and you will see a circular arrow, which is the auto-rotate symbol on most phones. If that doesn’t work with your phone, go to your phone’s menu and choose “Settings.” Select “Display,” and it should give you an option for auto-rotate. If you still are having trouble, contact your service provider or stop by a location. Someone there should be able to help you! — Heloise












HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, April 21, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Ego battles with bosses and authority figures are likely today, because you feel highly independent t. (In truth, Aries people don’t like to be told what to do.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Quarrels about secrets or something that was hidden from you might erupt today. You are probably dealing with someone who refuses to help you, which is why you are upset. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Quarrels with others, especially in group situations, might arise today because people are hotheaded and not willing to compromise. Avoid nastiness by staying light on your feet. (You’re clever with words.) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Disputes with people in authority are hard to avoid today. Perhaps this will give you a chance to clear the air and put your cards on the table. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues today. People are just looking for a reason to have a fight. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Differences about how to share something or divide an inheritance might arise today. This is a poor day to discuss jointly held property. But it’s a good day to get rid of what you no longer need. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Be patient with partners and close friends today, because arguments can easily erupt. Who needs this? Not you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Don’t force your views on others today. Instead, use your strong energy to clean up your workplace. Get rid of what is surplus and no longer necessary. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Be patient with children. This is also a rocky day for romance, so try to avoid arguments, because they will be nasty. Take it easy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might want to clean up garbage areas or attack plumbing problems at home today. It’s a good day to recycle and get rid of useless stuff. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You have a lot of mental energy today if you want to study something. However, don’t coerce others to agree with your point of view. Easy does it. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Avoid arguments about money and possessions today because they will arise easily. In part, it’s because you are so hung up on one idea that it crowds out everything else in your mind. YOU BORN TODAY You appreciate beauty and have excellent taste. You’re a caring individual who strives for excellence in standards. You want the approval of others. You have a good head for money and are energetic in your daily activities. Most of you, especially females, are generous and giving. In your year ahead, you will work hard to construct or build something. Your rewards soon will follow.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Saturday, April 20, the 110th day of 2013. There are 255 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 20, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln signed a proclamation admitting West Virginia to the Union, effective in 60 days (June 20, 1863). On this date: In 1861, Col. Robert E. Lee resigned his commission in the

United States Army. (Lee went on to command the Army of Northern Virginia, and eventually became general-in-chief of the Confederate forces.) In 1972, the manned lunar module from Apollo 16 landed on the moon. In 1988, gunmen who’d hijacked a Kuwait Airways jumbo jet were allowed safe passage out of Algeria under an agreement that freed the remaining 31 hostages and ended a 15-day siege in which

two passengers were slain. In 1999, the Columbine High School massacre took place in Colorado as two students, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, shot and killed 12 classmates and one teacher before taking their own lives. In 2010, an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil platform, leased by BP, killed 11 workers and began spewing an estimated 200 million gallons of crude into the Gulf of Mexico for nearly three months.

Boy Scouts propose to lift gay ban for youth The key part of the resolution says no youth may be denied membership in the Scouts “on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone.” A ban would continue on leadership roles for adults who are openly gay or lesbian. Gay-rights groups, which had demanded a complete lifting of the ban, criticized the proposal as inadequate. “Until every parent and young person have the same opportunity to serve, the Boy Scouts will continue to see a decline in both mem-

bership and donations,” said Rich Ferraro, a spokesman for the gay-rights watchdog group GLAAD. Chad Griffin, president of Human Rights the Campaign, said the BSA was too timid. “What message does this resolution send to the gay Eagle Scout who, as an adult, wants to continue a lifetime of Scouting by becoming a troop leader?” he asked. Some conservative groups assailed the proposal from the opposite direction,

saying the ban should be kept in its entirety. “The policy is incoherent,” said Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council. “The proposal says, in essence, that homosexuality is morally acceptable until a boy turns 18 then, when he comes of age, he’s removed from the Scouts.” Perkins predicted that the proposed change, if adopted, would subject the BSA to “crippling lawsuits” because it would no longer be able to argue that excluding gays was integral to its basic principles. Indeed, the BSA has anticipated hostile reaction, estimating that easing the ban on gay adults might prompt between 100,000 and 350,000 members to leave the organization, which now has 2.6 million youth members. In January, the BSA said it was considering a plan to

give sponsors of local Scout units the option of admitting gays as both youth members and adult leaders or continuing to exclude them. On Friday, the BSA said it changed course in part because of surveys sent out starting in February to about 1 million members of the Scouting community. The review, said a BSA statement, “created an outpouring of feedback” from 200,000 respondents, some supporting the exclusion policy and others favoring a change. “While perspectives and opinions vary significantly, parents, adults in the Scouting community and teens alike tend to agree that youth should not be denied the benefits of Scouting,” the statement said. As a result, the BSA’s Executive Committee drafted the compromise resolution.

“The proposed resolution also reinforces that Scouting is a youth program, and any sexual conduct, whether heterosexual or homosexual, by youth of Scouting age is contrary to the virtues of Scouting,” the statement said. The BSA described its survey as “the most comprehensive listening exercise in its history.” In a summary of the findings, it said respondents overall supported the BSA’s current policy of excluding gays by a margin of 61 percent to 34 percent, while a majority of younger parents and teens opposed the policy. It said overwhelming majorities of parents, teens and members of the Scouting community felt it would be unacceptable to deny an openly gay Scout an Eagle Scout Award solely because of his sexual orientation.

NEW YORK (AP) — Searching for compromise on a divisive issue, the Boy Scouts of America is proposing to partially lift its longstanding exclusion of gays allowing them as youth members but continuing to bar them as adult leaders. The proposal, unveiled Friday after weeks of private leadership deliberations, will be submitted to the roughly 1,400 voting members of the BSA’s National Council during the week of May 20 at a meeting in Texas.

Remembering you on this day, comforted by so many memories. In the hearts of those who loved you, you will always be there. If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. . Loved always, sadly missed. Forever remembered, forever missed. Suffer little children to come unto me.

Honoring Boston Kansas Speedway and several drivers plan to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings during this weekend’s NASCAR races. The track is working with NASCAR on a moment of silence before Sunday’s Sprint Cup race to remember the three people killed and more than 170 wounded in Monday’s blasts. Michael Waltrip, who ran the Boston Marathon in 2000, plans to honor them with special door numbers painted on his three Sprint Cup entries. The numbers will replicate the style of bib numbers pinned on the nearly 30,000 runners in this year’s marathon. Waltrip said, “It was a great moment of pride when they pinned the Boston Marathon bib on me, so it would be great to pin bib numbers on our races cars this week in Kansas.”

Tragedy hits close to home

Tightening Security Kansas Speedway is increasing the police presence for this weekend’s NASCAR races after two explosions at the Boston Marathon left three dead and more than 170 wounded. Track President Pat Warren said there have been several meetings since Monday’s bombings between speedway staff and local authorities, and they in turn have spoken to officials from the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI to prepare for the race weekend. Warren said the increased security will be noticeable, and that fans attending the Truck Series race Saturday and the Sprint Cup race Sunday should plan to arrive early.

Kenseth Wins Pole Matt Kenseth did his best Friday to erase his reputation as a poor qualifier. Kenseth rolled to the pole for Sunday’s race at Kansas Speedway, setting a track qualifying record of 191.864 mph in cold, windy conditions to bump Carl Edwards out of the top spot and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. into the second row. “We didn’t think we had a chance,” Kenseth said. “It’s unexpected, and its one of the fastest tracks of the year. Felt great to go out late and jump over the other guys.”

Crew members for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Kyle Busch work on the race car at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. Friday.

Kyle Busch’s world Heads to Kansas fresh off sweep in Texas By The Associated Press It’s Kyle Busch’s world once again in NASCAR and everybody else is just sharing track space with him. Until this weekend at Kansas, of course. Then everyone gets to see just how far Busch has really come in the last 17 months. Busch won both the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series races in Texas last weekend, his second sweep this season, in a huge comeback at the site of his 2011 NASCAR suspension for deliberately wrecking Ron Hornaday Jr. in a Truck Series race. Now he carries all that momentum into Kansas, his worst track on the circuit. Busch is winless at Kansas in 11 career starts, has only two top-10 finishes and wrecked there during Chase for the Sprint Cup championship races in 2007 and 2010. He also crashed last season. Still, Busch just picked up his first career win at Texas Motor Speedway and he wants to do the same at Kansas, where his average finish is 21st and is one of only six active tracks where he’s yet to win a Cup race. “It’s not that you might not like a track or might not like a race … it’s just a matter of trying to figure it out,” Busch said. “Once you kind of get it figured out or get the right situations kind of lined up, you can have a shot. I look at (Kansas) a lot

like Michigan. That’s a place where I struggled for a long time, but we finally were able to break through there for a win two years ago.” In years past, Busch has dreaded going to Kansas. Not this year. A year after grabbing just one win across all three NASCAR national series, Busch is red hot again. He’s got two wins in Cup and has won four of the six Nationwide races. He’s also got five top-five finishes in both series. Running well cures all driver ailments, so Busch’s mood is obviously considerably better of late. But team owner Joe Gibbs said Busch’s maturity has been better for quite some time. “I think back to last year at the end of the year, Kyle probably had some of the most bitter disappointments, I think, that’s happened to us in 22 years,” Gibbs said. “We missed the Chase. We had Watkins Glen won, go to the last lap and get in somebody else’s oil. We had some issues mechanically during the year that cost us. “I think last year at the end of the year, Kyle really handled all of those things about as good as you could handle them. I think it showed real maturity, and I think that kind of set the course for this year.” So he heads into Kansas with an open mind and last year’s race when he was leading before he spun on the new track surface fresh in his memory. “I’m looking forward to Kansas

with the roll that we’re on,” he said. “I thought we were running decent there last year … so, hopefully, we have a good car like that this time around and I don’t make a mistake like that. But, you know, Kansas is newly repaved. It’s got a winter on it, now, so we’ll see how that changes things. But I still expect it to be fast.” • No Sophomore Slump With so many questions about a potential “sophomore slump,” Courtney Force couldn’t help but worry about this season. “It was getting in my head after doing all these interviews, everyone is going, ‘Going into your second year, you think you’re going to have a sophomore slump?’” she said. “Wait, I didn’t know about that. I hope not.” So far, so good for Force, who heads into this weekend’s NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway in Concord leading the Funny Car standings. She won the season-opener at Pomona and used a runner-up finish two weeks ago in Las Vegas to move to the top of the standings. “It’s definitely a good feeling to come out and be in the points lead only the fourth race in,” she said. “I’m definitely working twice as hard because I think we’ve got a good team, I think we have a lot of potential.” Her next challenge is at zMax with its unique four-lane configuration, which Force embraced after her first visit last season.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — The MIT police officer killed during the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombing suspects was the brother of a machinist for Hendrick Motorsports, bringing the events of this past week closer to home for NASCAR teams already rallying around the tragedy. Sean Collier, who began working for Massachusetts Institute of Technology about a year ago, was found shot to death late Thursday in his vehicle in Cambridge, Mass. Police have said Collier was responding to a report of a disturbance when he was shot about 10 miles west of Boston. His brother, Andrew Collier, has been working for Charlotte, N.C.-based Hendrick Motorsports since 2008. He works in the engine shop and is not part of the team that travels to the track each week. “My thoughts and prayers with the Collier family, and I certainly know it’s the same thing with everyone at Hendrick Motorsports,” five-time Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson said Friday at Kansas Speedway. “We’re one big family and it’s sad to see a teammate going through this.” NASCAR teams were already planning to honor victims of Monday’s attacks, which left three dead and more than 180 wounded, during this weekend’s races in Kansas. Roush Fenway Racing plans to donate $100 for every lap the team leads to The One Fund Boston, which was set up to help people affected by the bombings. The team’s three Sprint Cup cars will also carry “B-Strong” decals, done in Red Sox script, that have cropped up this week. The race team is partially owned by Fenway Sports Group, which owns the Red Sox. “When events occur such as what happened earlier this week in Boston, it is our nature to be overwhelmed with a variety of emotions,” Jack Roush said in a statement. “To have to withstand an act of such senselessness and cowardice against innocent people is disheartening to us all. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families, as well as the entire city of Boston.”

Keselowski looking forward to chance to appeal KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Brad Keselowski spent some time in the garage talking to crew chief Paul Wolfe, then walked over to his No. 2 Ford and hopped in for practice on a brisk, breezy day at Kansas Speedway. Everything appeared to be normal in the world of Penske Racing. Even if that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Keselowski and teammate Joey Logano arrived at this weekend’s race with their full crews while

Penske Racing appeals heavy penalties levied by NASCAR for bringing unapproved parts to Texas. Wolfe and Logano crew chief Todd Gordon were each fined $100,000 and suspended, along with five others in the Penske organization, for six championship points races after NASCAR inspectors found an unapproved rear-end housing on the Nos. 2 and 22 cars before last weekend’s race. The crews are allowed at the track until the

appeal is heard. “I think it’s definitely a challenge for us, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing,” Keselowski said Friday. “It’s an opportunity to show how strong a team Penske Racing can be. I think there’s a lot of passion inside this group and, you know, the strong will survive.” Logano qualified 22nd for Sunday’s race. Keselowski will roll off 33rd. The move by NASCAR inspectors to confiscate the

questionable part just before last weekend’s race set off a mad scramble by both teams. Logano was late to the starting grid at Texas and had to start at the back of the field, but recovered to finish fifth. Keselowski ended up ninth. The penalties dished out to Penske Racing hurt even more. “I’m thankful there is a process for appeals,” Keselowski said, “because obviously we’re in an agree-to-disagree stage

between Penske Racing and NASCAR, and thankfully, there’s a third panel or group to settle those disagreements.” The date for the appeal has not been set. Richard Petty said Friday that someone in the garage area must have told NASCAR officials about the questionable parts on the Penske cars, and attention drifted to Hendrick Motorsports a team known for pushing the envelope when it comes to research and development.

Haslam will remain owner in Cleveland CLEVELAND (AP) — The NFL has no plans to ask Browns owner Jimmy Haslam to step aside while the FBI investigates his involvement in a fraud scheme. League spokesman Greg Aiello said Friday in an email that the league is not concerned about the daily operations of the Browns and that “there are no such plans” to have Haslam remove himself temporarily from the team. According to an affidavit filed in Knoxville, Tenn., Haslam was aware that members of his Pilot Flying J travel center company’s sales force preyed on smaller trucking companies by reducing the amount of rebates they were owed for buying certain amounts of fuel. Haslam, who bought the Browns in October from Randy Lerner, has returned to Tennessee after he was at the team’s headquarters Thursday to help with preparations for next week’s draft.

Marlins top Reds, 2-1 CINCINNATI (AP) — Justin Ruggiano hit a solo homer off Aroldis Chapman in the ninth inning Friday night, sending the Miami Marlins to a 2-1 victory that snapped the Cincinnati Reds’ winning streak at four games. It was a stunning moment for the Marlins, who have the worst record in the majors at 4-13 and had only four homers fewest in the majors when Ruggiano connected off the Reds’ spotless closer for his second homer in two games. Chapman (2-1) hadn’t allowed a run in his eight previous

appearances, giving up only three hits while fanning 13. Ruggiano connected on a 3-1 pitch, driving it deep to center for his third homer. No one else on the Marlins has more than one. It was only the seventh homer Chapman has allowed during his four seasons in the majors. Left-hander Mike Dunn (1-0) retired the last two batters in the eighth. Steve Cishek gave up a hit in the ninth while earning the Marlins’ first save of the seaAP PHOTO son. Cincinnati Reds’ Shin-Soo Choo dives into third base with a Nick Green had three singles

Sporting events postponed in Boston Manhunt in Boston area causes Red Sox and Bruins to cancel BOSTON (AP) — The Red Sox and Bruins postponed their games Friday while authorities searched for a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings and officials warned nearly 1 million people to stay indoors. The teams announced about four hours before their night games were scheduled to start that they were scratched. Police identified two suspects in Monday’s explosions that killed three people and wounded more than 180. One man was killed during a shootout with police and the other was being sought in a massive police effort that lasted much of Friday. Authorities in Boston suspended all mass transit, used by many fans to travel to games, and told people in

the entire city and some of its suburbs to stay inside as the hunt for Suspect No. 2 went on. Businesses were asked not to open, and people waiting at bus and subway stops were told to go home. No makeup date was announced for the opener of the Red Sox three-game series against the Kansas City Royals scheduled at Fenway Park. Saturday’s game, set to start at 1:35 p.m., was still on. The NHL game at TD Garden between the Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins, two of the top four teams in the Eastern Conference, was tentatively rescheduled for Saturday at 12:30 p.m. A final decision on whether it would be played then would be made by four hours before faceoff,

t e P A t p o Ad “Griffin”

Griffin is a 9 yr old, male, Terrier mix. He was released to us by his owner, due to a move. He is already neutered. He is a very sweet and happy guy. He doesn't appear to have had the best care – his is very matted and dirty underneath and will need to be groomed and probably totally shaved down to clean up. Despite his condition, Griffin is a friendly and loving boy. And although he is an older boy, he has plenty of love to share!

Cavs, Brown could reunite CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cavaliers are seeking a respected, defensive-minded, hard-working teacher to be their next coach. Those words describe Mike Brown, their former coach. He could be their new one, too. Brown, who along with superstar LeBron James led the Cavs to their greatest heights before he was fired three years ago, is one of the candidates the team intends to speak with as it looks to replace Byron Scott. The Cavs are in the initial stages of their coaching search after firing Scott, who went 64-166 in three seasons. Brown’s return — once thought too far-fetched — is a distinct possibility. “It should be,” James said following practice on Friday as the Miami Heat prepared for their playoff series opener against Milwaukee. “It should be real.” Brown is close friends with Cavaliers general man-

ager Chris Grant, who would not answer a direct question about the team’s former coach during a news conference to announce Scott’s dismissal on Thursday. Grant, though, made it clear the Cavs need to improve defensively and would bring in a coach “who is strong defensively with proven systems.” Brown’s forte is defense and during his time with Cleveland the Cavs developed into a sound defensive team, but one that relied on James to carry them offensively. James has credited Brown with making him a better defensive player and the current Cavs need some defensive discipline after finishing ranked last in the league in defense. Grant and his staff spent Friday going over their list of potential candidates, which could include college coaches, NBA assistants and former head coaches who have been out of the league.

Garden is 17,565. Red Sox players and other team employees had been told to stay home until a decision was made on

whether the game would be played, and the thousands of officers involved in the manhunt made security for the games difficult. Red Sox spokesman Kevin Gregg said the Royals have been in town since Wednesday night and spent their off day in the city on Thursday. The Royals are staying at the Westin Copley Place hotel, about a block from the marathon finish line. “We’ve been told not to go outside. We’ve been told the hotel has been locked down, although I’ve seen a handful of people moving around,” Royals vice president Mike Swanson said. “The streets are just, wow. It’s numbingly quiet for a noon hour in Boston.” The Bruins also announced that the sale of playoff tickets, scheduled to start at 11 a.m. on Friday, has been put off until 11 a.m. Monday.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Former Steelers linebacker James Harrison is headed down the Ohio River to continue his career, agreeing to a two-year deal with the AFC North-rival Cincinnati Bengals. It won’t be long before he gets his first chance to show Pittsburgh what it’s missing. The Bengals play their first home game next season on Monday night, Sept. 16 against the Steelers, the team they knocked out of playoff competition last year. Harrison, who turns 35 in May, got used to making deep runs in the playoffs with Pittsburgh. Now, he’s going to get a chance to try to get the Bengals their first playoff victory since 1990. Cincinnati has made the playoffs each of the last two seasons as a wild card team,

losing to Houston in the first round both times. Agent Bill Parise said Harrison has passed a physical and all details of a twoyear deal had been worked out on Friday evening. The Bengals didn’t confirm the deal because it hadn’t been signed. Parise said Harrison was working out in Arizona and would be in Cincinnati the second week of May to start working out with his new team. Harrison tweeted: “Whodey!!!!!!!!!!! Hello Cincinnati!!!!” The former Defensive Player of the Year was a casualty of Pittsburgh’s move to get under the salary cap. The Steelers and Parise negotiated but couldn’t reach a deal on a reworked contract. Harrison was entering the final two year of a $51 million extension signed in 2009.

■ Major League Baseball

Reds ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 and scored the Marlins’ first run on a raw, wet night. It was 46 degrees at the first pitch, and showers moved through during the game. Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton wore a ski mask under his cap. Reds starter Mat Latos remained winless in four

starts this season, which include two blown saves behind him. He allowed one run on six hits and struck out 10, fanning pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs with runners on second and third to end the Marlins’ seventh inning and keep it tied. Marlins starter Kevin Slowey remained winless in the majors since 2010, a

streak that includes 10 losses, several injuries and very little help from his offense. The Marlins were shut out in his first two starts this season, and managed only one run in his third. This time, the major leagues’ least-productive offense got two runners thrown out at the plate and

managed one run while Slowey was in the game. He left after six innings, having allowed four hits. Slowey held down an offense that had scored 11 runs in each of its last two games. Shin-Soo Choo opened the Reds’ first with a triple and scored on Joey Votto’s sacrifice fly. That was it for Cincinnati.

By contrast, the Marlins got chances against Latos and wasted them. Miami got him a run in the third, but could have had more. Nick Green and Donovan Solano singled, and Slowey advanced them with a sacrifice bunt. Placido Polanco singled to right for one run, but Solano was thrown out at

home by Jay Bruce. Juan Pierre opened the sixth with a double and advanced on a fly out. He was out at the plate when he tried to score on Stanton’s grounder to shortstop Zack Cozart with the infield drawn in. Pierre lowered his shoulder, but catcher Ryan Hanigan held on after making the tag.

Troy’s Luke Oaks competes during a match against Fairborn Friday. ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Teddy Morton 6-3, 6-3. At second doubles, Hidekazu Asami and Matt Schmitt defeated Spencer Neuman and Nhat Mai 6-0, 6-0. “We played well on a cold, windy day,” Troy coach Mark Goldner said. With the win, Troy improved to 5-3 on the season, while Fairborn fell to 2-5. The Trojans host Fairmont on Monday. Tippecanoe 5, Spr. Shawnee 0 — SPRINGFIELD Tippecanoe shifted its lineup a little before Friday’s Central Buckeye Conference matchup at Springfield Shawnee, but the result was the same — a 5-0 Red Devil victory. At first singles, Sam Bollinger won 6-1, 6-0. At second singles, Michael Keller won 6-0, 6-0. At third singles, freshman Phillip Bullard picked up his first varsity win by a 6-1, 6-1 score. At first doubles, Adam Southers and Jacob Belcher won 6-0, 6-4. At second doubles, Jon Lin and Doug Lehnkuhl won 6-2, 6-1. Tippecanoe improved to 9-1 with the win, 8-0 in the CBC. Shawnee fell to 1-6 and 0-6. The Red Devils host Stebbins Monday.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Kevin Streelman looks ready to make contending at PGA Tour events a habit, while Brandt Snedeker was poised for an early exit at the RBC Heritage in the raindelayed second round Friday. Streelman, who won his first tour title last month at the Tampa Bay Championships, shot a 1under 70 before the wind picked up at Harbour Town Golf Links. He was tied at 6 under with Charley Hoffman and 34year-old rookie Steve LeBrun. Hoffman, like Streelman, followed an opening 66 with a 70. LeBrun shot his second straight 68. Luke Donald and Bill Haas were a stroke back. Donald had a 68, and Haas shot 69. The biggest surprise was Snedeker, at No. 5 the highest-ranked player in the field. Days after leading the Masters on Sunday before faltering, the 2011 Harbour Town winner opened with a 73 and had a 71 Friday to finish at 2 over one over the projected cut line. Seventeen players were unable to finish. The rain was forecast to continue overnight before the front moves out to sea and brings cooler temperatures but no rain. Streelman had three birdies in his first four holes. He added a final birdie on the par-5 15th and parred out to move on top and put himself in contention on the tricky, narrow fairways and small greens of Harbour

Town. Streelman’s life hasn’t changed much since the victory in Tampa Bay, just his approach to the game. “I do feel a bit freer to be in the position I am, say, in a week like this,” he said. “Because I’m not worried about a top 10 or a top 5 or keep your card. And I can just go out and try and win a golf tournament.” The attitude worked for Streelman at the RBC Heritage, where his best showing in four previous appearances was a tie for 17th last year. Streelman’s turnaround began before the Tampa Bay victory when he decided it was better to think long term instead of over-emphasizing the past week’s tournament successes or failures. “If I play well on the weekend, great. If I don’t play well, great,” he continued. “I know I’m doing the right things from my practice and workout and for a lifestyle situation for the long term with my career.” Hoffman, seeking his third PGA Tour career victory and first since 2010, closed with birdies on his final two holes, the eighth and the ninth, to catch Streelman. • LPGA KAPOLEI, Hawaii — Suzann Pettersen shot a 4-under 68 on Friday at wind-swept Ko Olina to maintain a one-stroke lead after the third round of the LPGA Lotte Championship. 32-year-old The Norwegian, a 10-time LPGA Tour winner ranked sixth in the world, had a 14-under 202 total.

tice. “I’m glad you’re asking me that two weeks after the fact because I wouldn’t have spoken about it then,” Fickell said solemnly. Now he’s able to see the humorous side of it, well after the video went viral. “It was a very good form tackle,” Fickell said. “I think we’re going to use it on our tackling tape.” The bottom line is that Brutus or at least one of the students in the massive foam head, rugby shirt, warmup pants and sneakers survived. Perkins shocked his coaches by nearly snuffing out the life of the school’s beloved mascot, but he got through the spring as one of a number of promising young players on


a unit that is striving to replace seven departing starters including the core leaders on a surprising 12-0 team. Linemen John Simon, Nathan Williams, Garrett Goebel and Johnathan Hankins, linebackers Zach Boren and Etienne Sabino and cornerback Travis Howard did much of the work to transform a 6-7 team into only the sixth unbeaten and untied squad in Ohio State’s 123 years playing the sport. The Buckeyes have a lot of talent returning despite losing those seven starters. But it’s filling in the gap of experience and expertise that may be the hardest task before the games start counting this fall.

eyeing return EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) — After every misfortune and injury setback during the most frustrating season of his career, Steve Nash only wants to finish the year on the court with the Los Angeles Lakers. Nash said he is “very confident” he will return from a hamstring injury for Los Angeles’ playoff opener at San Antonio on Sunday, hopefully adding another major contributor to the Lakers’ lateseason surge. The two-time NBA MVP practiced with his teammates at their training complex Friday, going through half-court offensive drills and testing his injured right hamstring. Nash hasn’t played in April, missing Los Angeles’ final eight

games with the latest injury in a year that began with a broken leg in the Lakers’ second game. “I just don’t want to overpromise and get ahead of myself,” Nash said. “The last almost three weeks now, I wake up every morning, thinking, ‘Today’s the day,’ and then I want to hang myself after practice, so I don’t want to overpromise.” Nash hasn’t been able to run at full speed, a serious problem for a floor leader with a game predicated on movement and anticipation. But after receiving recent epidural injections, Nash believes he can be in the starting lineup when the seventh-seeded Lakers open in San Antonio.
