A tale as old as time Troy Christian to present ‘Beauty and the Beast’ BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer myingst@civitasmedia.com It’s a Disney dream come true for Troy Christian High School senior Hannah Godfrey to don the iconic golden dress as she stars as Belle in the school’s spring production of “Beauty and the Beast.” “It was one of my favorite movies growing up,” Godfrey said after dress rehearsals this week. Godfrey said she hadn’t been in a large production since eighth grade, but decided to take a chance at the starring role as Belle as a senior year milestone. More than 120 people are involved in the musical presentation of “Beauty and the Beast” and performances will be today at 7 p.m., Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. “I wanted to try out for the play because it’s my senior year, so I wanted to give it a try,” she said. “When I saw that I got Belle, it was really exciting.” Godfrey said she enjoys singing as part of her church’s praise band and welcomes any and all opportunities to share her musical talent. “I just wanted to explore the songs in this play, and they are really quite beautiful to sing,” she said. Accompanying Godfrey on stage will be Drew Spoon, 18, who plays the role of the “Beast.” “I love singing — just straight up — I love it,” Spoon said. Spoon said his favorite song from the show is “If I Can’t Love Her,” but it also is his most challenging scene. “I love the whole process and making good friends,” he said. Director Paige Nichols said she’s enjoyed watching her students work together in a new, fun and challenging environment that only the stage can offer. “The Lord has put so much talent in these young people,” she said.

Drew Spoon, left, and Hannah Godfrey, right, play the roles of “Beast” and “Belle,” respectively, in Troy Christian’s production of “Beauty and the Beast.”

Dinner to feature special guests As a special feature, the characters of Belle, Beast and others from the castle will be present at a dinner before Saturday’s performance. The dinner is set to begin at 5:30 p.m. The dinner theater menu features penne pasta, meat lasagna, meatballs, grilled chicken strips, marinara and Alfredo sauce, garden salad, breads, drinks and desserts. Belle, Beast and the other characters will stay throughout the dinner for professional photo sittings, including a themed backdrop, for only $5. Pictures will be provided online for ordering. Photos are courtesy of Gene’s Scenes. The cost of tickets are: Students through 12th grade—$5 performance only or $16 for the performance and dinner; Adults— $10 for the performance only or $21 for the performance and dinner on Saturday.

“These plays give the kids an outlet that they didn’t know they had. They can explore their talents in ways they can’t in the classroom.” Nichols said the hours of rehearsals and readings builds teamwork and a family-like atmosphere. “This is a family,” she said. “This

always brings kids together who may not have known each other very well in any other setting.” Senior Courtney Price said she’s performed in plays since seventh grade and was happy to pour her heart out as Mrs. Potts.

Planning commission approved exterior work for the former La Bella Viaggio health and fitness center, 101 W. Franklin St., at the April 24 meeting. The new owner is Patty Rose of P&C Ventures. “She will be keeping it as a fitness center and salon; however, she will change the name to Fit Institute of Troy,” said Zoning Inspector Shannon Brandon. The east side of the property will be the fitness center, while the west side will house the salon. Rose’s sister Beth Schuffels provided color swatches and samples at the meeting, as Rose was unable to attend. Changes to the building include replacing the fringed edge of the two awnings with a clean edge; painting the trim of the foyer blue to match the color in the awnings, as well as painting trim along the front of the building; and installing two wall signs on the front and one in the rear of the building. In other planning commission news, interior window signs with the Mayflower Arts Center logo were approved for 9 and 11 W. Main St. Each sign will measure 2.66 square feet, considerably less than the allotted sign allowance, and will include white vinyl lettering. The logo will include the tag-line “create. enlighten. inspire.” Planning and Zoning Manager Tim Davis said the signs are very minimal and fit well with the historic character of the building, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The owner is Lisa Bauer of Periphery Ventures LLC. The committee also made a request to postpone indefinitely a rezoning request for 338 Grant St., at the request of the applicants Niall and Karen Foster, who had requested for the application to be tabled.

Community mourns loss of police chief Davidson remembered for his kindness, compassion BY JOYELL NEVINS Civitas Media jnevins@civitasmedia.com After a career spanning more than two decades in Tipp City and two more decades elsewhere, Police Chief Tom Davidson will be remembered for his kindness and 6 impartiality.

TIPP CITY Davidson passed away Tuesday after a prolonged battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife Jan, and is remembered fondly by his department and his city. “His approach to policing was a

perfect fit for the Tipp City community,” acting chief Eric Burris said. “He had compassion for everyone and represented the city and the DAVIDSON department with distinction.” Mayor Dee Gillis agreed. “Chief Davidson was a dedicated public servant who cared not only for his officers, but for every

citizen. He was approachable, took time to understand your concerns and always had a positive attitude,” she said. Davidson served with Tipp City from December 1990 until his passing. He was set to retire April 30. During that time, he gave many officers a first chance on the force, including Brian Arnold of the records division. “The chief gave me my start in

Golf is a great sport for spending an enjoyable day with all the family.

Playing golf with the family What could be better than spending an enjoyable day on the golf course with the people you love? That’s right! Golf is one of the most popular sports for socializing, relaxing, issuing challenges, and getting lots of fresh air, all at the same time! The time is long gone when golf clubs were the privileged domain of business men and off limits to women! Today, more and more golf clubs offer

various packages so that all the members of a family have access to their courses. Many clubs offer annual memberships to couples or families, allowing parents to plan regular rounds of golf with their children. As well as the pleasure of sharing the same passion, golf allows families to spend quality time together. If the members of your family aren’t all at the same level, playing at an executive golf course (par 3 and 4) will provide a good initiation for beginners and a different challenge to the more experienced. To add a competitive element to a family round, why not change partners from time to time, forming father-daughter, mother-son teams, etc.

A great idea for your next family vacation is to find a destination where you can enjoy the pleasures of golf together. Travel specialists will be able to advise you about foreign travel packages or holiday resorts which specialize in golf and family activities.

The importance of the mind Golf is a complex game. As well as having to master techniques, golfers must also be able to control their emotions. It’s all true that there is plenty to enjoy in the fresh air and social aspects of the game, but players must also realize that golf is a sport in which the mind plays a vital role. Experts will tell you that golfers spend an average of 90 percent of their time on the golf course thinking and 10 percent swinging and hitting the ball. This is why it’s so important to make the right decisions. Whether you’re a regular, occasional, or professional golfer, the object of the game stays the same. Apart from mastering techniques, golf requires concentration and will power. A good balance between discipline, the control of movements, and the psychological aspects of the game will add to your enjoyment and lead to success in this demanding sport. The first thing to realize is that you are, above all, playing for yourself and not for your partners. Set your objectives and give yourself the means of reaching them. Appreciate your good shots and learn to accept the poor ones. Did you miss a shot because you lifted your head or because your shoulders weren’t in the right position? Tell yourself that this lack of concentration is behind you. In other words don’t dwell on the past, continually thinking about the reasons for missing the shot, as this could well haunt you for the rest of the round. Success in golf largely depends on your ability to concentrate, to master the techniques of visualization, of positive thinking, and self-confidence. In other words, you are the master of your own destiny!

Designed to elevate the ball on the tee-off, the tee has evolved considerably over the years. This simple little wooden peg has made a lot of progress and still remains an important accessory for golfers. The time is long gone when players used a pile of sand to elevate the ball! The arrival of the wooden tee not only allowed golfers to improve their drives but also to avoid damaging the grass on the tee-offs. Tees have become much more sophisticated over the years. These days they are made mainly from variously coloured wood or plastic. Some golfers prefer the traditional wooden tees for their effectiveness, while others will opt for those made in plastic because of their greater durability. Large manufacturers of golf equipment are constantly searching for improvements and a wide variety of tees are now available on the market. One option is the wooden tee in two colours and varying lengths, while the range of plastic tees is more elaborate. Apart from conventional tees it is also possible to obtain “zero friction” tees, where the ball is placed on three small supports. There are also oversized “brush” tees that reduce the rotation of the ball and tees of adjustable heights. Biodegradable tees made of bamboo are also available in specialized stores. It’s hard to believe that one of the smallest and most useful accessories continues to help golfers improve their game!

SAVAR, Bangladesh (AP) — Rescuers tried to free people believed trapped in the concrete rubble of a building housing mainly garment factories that collapsed in Bangladesh a day after workers complained cracks had developed in the structure. The death toll jumped Thursday to 149 after searchers worked through the night. “Many” people are still trapped, said the rescue operations leader, army Brig. Gen. Mohammed Siddiqul Alam Shikder said Thursday morning. A clearer picture of the rescue operation would be available by afternoon he said. Searchers cut holes in the jumbled mess of concrete with drills or their bare hands, passing water and flashlights to those pinned inside the building near Bangladesh’s capital of Dhaka. “I gave them whistles, water, torchlights. I heard them cry. We can’t leave them behind this way,” said fire official Abul Khayer. Rescue operations illuminated by floodlights continued through the night. The disaster came less than five months after a factory fire killed 112 people and underscored the unsafe conditions in Bangladesh’s massive garment industry. Workers said they had hesitated to go to into the building on Wednesday morning because it had developed such large cracks a day earlier that it even drew the attention of local news channels. Abdur Rahim, who

He next remembered regaining consciousness outside. On a visit to the site, Home Minister Muhiuddin Khan Alamgir told reporters the building had violated construction codes and “the culprits would be punished.” police chief Local Mohammaed Asaduzzaman said police and the government’s Capital Development Authority have filed separate cases of negligence against the building owner. Asaduzzaman said nearly 100 bodies have been handed to their families as of Thursday morning. Among the textile businesses in the building were Phantom Apparels Ltd., New Wave Style Ltd., New Wave Bottoms Ltd. and

New Wave Brothers Ltd., which make clothing for major brands including The Children’s Place, Dress Barn and Primark. Jane Singer, a spokeswoman for The Children’s Place, said that “while one of the garment factories located in the building complex has produced apparel for The Children’s Place, none of our product was in production at the time of this accident.” “Our deepest sympathies go out to the victims of this terrible tragedy and their families,” Singer said in a statement. Dress Barn said that to its knowledge, it had “not purchased any clothing from that facility since 2010. We work with suppliers around the world to manufacture our clothing, and have a supply chain transparency program to protect the rights of workers and their safety.” Primark, a major British clothing retailer, confirmed that one of the suppliers it

the chain. “We remain committed and are actively engaged in promoting stronger safety measures, and that work continues,” Gardner added. Workers said they didn’t know what specific clothing brands were being produced in the building because labels are attached after the products are finished. Kernaghan, Charles executive director of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights, which has an office in nearby Dhaka, says his staff is investigating the situation. He’s hoping his team, working with local workers’ groups, will be able to find out which brands were having their products made at the time of the collapse. “You can’t trust many buildings in Bangladesh,” Kernaghan said. “It’s so corrupt that you can buy off anybody and there won’t be any retribution.” Sumi, a 25-year-old worker who goes by one name, said she was sewing jeans on the fifth floor with at least 400 others when the building fell. “It collapsed all of a sudden,” she said. “No shaking, no indication. It just collapsed on us.” She said she managed to reach a hole in the building where rescuers pulled her out. Tens of thousands of people gathered at the site, weeping and searching for family members. Firefighters and soldiers with drilling machines and cranes worked with volunteers to search for survivors.

uses to produce some of its goods was located on the second floor of the building. In a statement emailed to The Associated Press, Primark said it was “shocked and deeply saddened by the appalling incident.” It added that it has been working with other retailers to review the country’s approach to factory standards and will now push for this review to include building integrity. Meanwhile, Primark’s ethical trade team is working to collect information, assess which communities the workers come from, and to provide support “where possible.” John Howe, Cato’s chief financial officer and executive vice president, told The Associated Press that it didn’t contract with any of the factories directly but it’s currently investigating what its “ties” were. Howe said that one of Cato’s domestic importers could have used one of the factories to fulfill some of the orders the retailer had placed. It’s expected to have more information by Thursday. Spanish retailer Mango denied reports it was using any of the suppliers in the building. However, in an email statement to the AP, it said that there had been conversations with one of them to produce a batch of test products. Kevin Gardner, a spokesman at Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., the secondlargest clothing producer in Bangladesh, said the company is investigating to see if a factory in the building was currently producing for

“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 The Grand Island (Neb.) Independent on juveniles convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole: The U.S. Supreme Court threw a sensitive issue back to the states last year and Nebraska is one of many states trying to deal with it. The court said it was unconstitutional to sentence juveniles convicted of first-degree murder to life in prison without parole. Doing so, the court ruled, amounted to cruel and unusual punishment. So now 29 states, including Nebraska, are working to comply with the court’s ruling. It’s not an easy issue. On one hand, “These aren’t shoplifters. These are people doing some really bad things,” as state Sen. Ken Schilz of Ogallala said in legislative debate last week. These are killers, murderers who deserve harsh punishment. The opposing argument is that these are people whose young age may have played a part in their terrible judgment in committing these murders. Their young age may be considered a mitigating factor in a sentence, as the court said. In Nebraska, 27 inmates are serving life sentences without parole for crimes they committed before they turned 18. The Nebraska Legislature has been wrestling with this issue. The Judiciary Committee proposed a 30-year minimum prison term. However, in debate on the floor, some lawmakers thought 30 years was too low because the inmate would be eligible for parole in 15 years. Nebraska law allows parole after half of a minimum sentence has been served, although few are released at that time. So some legislators proposed increasing the minimum sentence to 60 years. In the end, senators agreed to a compromise of 40 years. Under the plan, juveniles convicted of first-degree murder could receive a sentence within the range of 40 years to life in prison. This is a good compromise because it listened to all concerned and set the minimum sentence at a reasonable level for both sides. The Joplin (Mo.) Globe on Saturday mail delivery: Foiled in March by Congress, the U.S. Postal Service admitted it was licked on its plan to end Saturday mail delivery. The Postal Service, which lost $16 billion last year, had announced in February it wanted to switch to five-day mail service to save $2 billion annually. It had planned to switch to fiveday-a-week deliveries beginning in August for everything except packages. Congress traditionally has included a provision in legislation to fund the federal government each year that has prevented the Postal Service from reducing delivery service. The Postal Service had asked Congress not to include the provision this time around. Congress held firm, citing the needs of families, businesses and seniors, particularly those living in rural areas. We might add to that list: newspapers. We are elated that our mail customers will see no changes in the delivery of their Saturday paper. Especially when you consider that some of the potential cost savings cited by the Postal Service may have been greatly overstated. Saturday mail delivery is still too important to our way of life to go by the wayside.

DOONESBURY

So you think you have the worst job in America? So today is Thursday, which means many of you are probably thinking something along the lines of, “Well, thank God the work week is almost over and I can finally get out of this place.” In fact, some of you could very well be reading this column right now at work (hopefully not if you are a brain surgeon performing delicate surgery, however) and thinking, “I’m not sure I’m going to even get through this work day. I’m pretty sure the clock just moved backwards. I must have the worst job in America!” No you don’t. I do. Forbes has released its annual list of best and worst jobs in America. Best job? Actuary, a profession so exciting and filled with wonderment that I had to look it up to find out what it actually was. The worst job? Newspaper reporter. That’s right — according to the folks at Forbes, working at a newspaper is worse than a job that can get you killed (lumberjack, No. 2 on the list), a job that can potentially destroy an entire ecosystem (oil rig worker, No. 5) or a job that requires you to deal heavily in animal excrement (dairy farmer, No. 8). Heck, professions you would normally assume would be the worst jobs in America — snake handler, poison taste tester, Oprah Winfrey’s masseuse — didn’t even make the top 10! According to Tony Lee, publisher of CareerCast.com, newspaper reporter has always been

David Fong Troy Daily News Executive Editor ranked amongst the worst jobs “due to low pay, high levels of stress from working under deadlines, a poor hiring outlook and the requirement to be on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week.” The job rocketed to the top of the worst jobs this year, however, because the job has a “negative growth outlook.” All of which means that, having done this for nearly 20 years now, I must be either a glutton for punishment or the world’s biggest sucker (not that the two traits are necessarily mutually exclusive). So as I read the Forbes report, I began to wonder, “If I do, in fact, have the worst job there is, why have I continued to stick around for so long?” And here’s what I came up with: I stick around because, as bad and as stressful as things can sometimes get in the newsroom, I am going through that certain brand of heck with my brothers and sisters. I have grown up with some of these people. We have been there to hold one

another’s newborns and we have been there to put a hand on one another’s shoulder as we have put loved ones in the ground. I couldn’t imagine another group of people I’d rather spend 16 hours day with — and yes, we’ve had 16-hour days. They are my second family. I am here because I get to write stories that change people’s lives. I have written stories about this community’s greatest triumphs and its darkest hours. I have seen the best and the worst this little town has to offer. I have written stories and columns that have made people laugh (hopefully) and made people cry (unfortunately). I love being here on football Friday nights and election nights, when the excitement in the air is so thick you can almost feel the walls of the room start to pulse. I can’t imagine being anywhere else when news breaks and you are pooling all your resources in an effort to cover a big story properly. No place else gives me the opportunity to talk openly to thousands of people about my sister’s battle with cancer, my son’s autism diagnosis or the death of one of my friends from college in a tragic car accident. Writing is my catharsis — it allows my heart to bleed a little bit and say with my fingers what I cannot with my own two lips. Working at a newspaper allows me to go places and meet people most would only dream of. I’ve been to dozens of college

football games, nearly every professional sport there is and had the chance to shake hands with world leaders. Sure, working under a constant deadline might not be fun — but standing on a football field surrounded by 100,000 people as the clock ticks down on a big win over a rival school sure is. Some parts of this job never get boring and still send chills through my body. Can you say that about your job? It’s not just the rich and famous this job has allowed me to meet, however. Some of my favorite interviews have been with people who will never appear in any history books. These are the people who have allowed me to come into their lives and, hopefully, touch their hearts by writing their story as much as they’ve touched my heart by telling me their story. People have told me things they can’t bring themselves to tell their friends or family. When you are doing a story on someone who knows they are going to die soon and are willing to openly discuss that with you, this sure doesn’t feel like the worst job in America. This job also has allowed me to live out so many of my boyhood dreams. Has your job ever allowed you to return a kickoff for an indoor football team? Or step into a professional wrestling ring and get knocked out by a 300-pound female professional wrestler named Awesome Kong? Or play goalie for the high school

hockey team? Or participate in the harness races at the county fair? Or play donkey basketball on a high school gym floor? This job has allowed me to be a part of the big moments — from presidential visits to college bowl games — and allowed me to be a part of the small moments — from tiny festivals to elementary school spelling bees. For most people, their job is a part of their lives. For me, my job is my life. It’s what I think about when I wake up in the morning and what I am thinking about when I go to sleep at night. Through this newspaper, I have grown up in front of all you readers — from know-it-all college graduate to a man scratching at the edges of being middle aged. By reading the pages you hold in your ink-stained fingers this very moment, you have been there when I got married, had two children and dealt with every one of life’s trials and tribulations. We’re in this together, folks. This isn’t about the money. And it isn’t about the deadlines or being on duty 24 hours a day. This job is about making a personal connection with each and every reader on a daily basis. But yeah, this job certainly isn’t for everybody — but it sure is the job for me. Troy’s very own David Fong appears on Thursdays in the Troy Daily News. Take this job and love it.

THOMAS N. DAVIDSON

Tipp man arrested following incident Staff Report

TIPP CITY

An argument over a parking spot turned aggressive and resulted in an arrest Monday. Christopher Davis, 43, has been charged with one count of a weapon under the influence. It started when his neighbor on South Third Street called the police for a disturbance of an argument regarding parking in the alley behind both of their houses. The space has been a recurring issue, but the

evening in question, the neighbor claimed Davis was intoxicated and argumentative. When the Tipp City police spoke to Davis about it, he ended up calling them an expletive and going inside his house. That was at 9 p.m. At about 9:07 p.m., the neighbor called the police again because Davis had remerged with a shotgun. When the officers returned,

Davis first claimed he had no weapon, then when a rifle was found sitting right beside the door, he told police he unloaded it as soon as he saw them arrive. Davis was incarcerated overnight and released Tuesday on his own recognisance. The court also ordered he turn in his Marlin Model 795 22 caliber rifle to the Tipp City Police Department. next court Davis’s appearance is scheduled for June 6.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Son needs to speak to his ex-wife about their daughter Dear Annie: My 4-year-old granddaughter, "Jill," visited recently and declared, "My mommy told me to watch what I eat because she doesn't want me to get heavy." Jill is certainly not heavy, and I was appalled that she was being told such a thing. I assured her that she is perfect. My son is divorced from Jill's mother. He informed me that his ex does indeed send this type of message to her little girl. My son is a great father. He tries to avoid confrontations with his ex and her parents, as they can be manipulative and self-centered. I will never speak disparagingly to my granddaughter about her mother, but I am concerned about the consequences such messages deliver on a little girl's self-image. Obviously, her mother and grandparents are a huge influence. Should I stay silent and let my son deal with his ex? — Concerned Nana Dear Nana: You should not say anything to the ex, but encourage your son to do so. A 4year-old girl should be eating roughly 1,200 calories a day with an emphasis on healthy foods that provide her with the proper nutrients. It's OK to teach Jill which foods are helpful for her body and which are not. But Mom should not give the message that Jill isn't good enough unless she is skinny, nor should Mom be restricting her daughter's calories in an effort to make her thin. Please tell your son to discuss this with Jill's pediatrician. He needs to be her advocate. But you also are an influence in Jill's life. When she visits you, make her feel loved no matter how she looks or what she eats. Dear Annie: My mother wants to use the Internet to look up definitions to crossword clues she is unfamiliar with. I feel this is cheating. Is it? I believe if you don't know or can't answer the word in one direction, the intersecting clues are there to help you create the answer. While looking up a definition might be helpful once you've solved the entire crossword, doing it in advance seems like an unfair advantage. We are currently bickering over this, so your thoughts would be appreciated. — Crossword Junkie Dear Crossword: Part of the challenge of crossword puzzles is not to know all of the answers in advance. Where's the fun in that? And some clues are deliberately set up to be interpreted in more than one way, so a definition isn't necessarily useful. It might be considered cheating if Mom were in a competition (dictionaries also provide synonyms), but since she is not, it only deprives her of the satisfaction of figuring out the clues on her own. Please don't make that your problem. Dear Annie: Like "Your Husband," I was one of those men with a significant sex drive. But after three children, my wife shut me down completely. I slept on the couch for four years until a family counselor said we should divorce because we were lousy role models for our children. My ex-wife has remarried, but is as unhappy as ever. I am still single, but have not regretted the divorce for a single day. Physical touch is too important to turn off and not expect consequences. For a lot of men, sex is the glue that makes a relationship work. Telling a man that sex is over is as devastating to him as telling a woman she can never again talk to her girlfriends. Women would label that "abuse." Well, many men consider the loss of sex to be just as horrendous. As I told my daughter when she was older, "If you decide to give up sex, do not expect your husband to agree with you. There will be consequences." — Your Next Husband Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

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

HINTS FROM HELOISE

Shining a light on battery storage suggestion Dear Heloise: Please advise me on how to store flashlight batteries. I was told to put them in the refrigerator until using. Thank you for your assistance. — Irene B. in West Virginia To see or not to see (with a working flashlight), that is the question! The refrigerator is not the place for flashlight batteries. Batteries today are not your grandmother’s batteries of yesterday. You want to store your flashlight and batteries in a cool, dry, room-temperature location where you will remember you placed them if needed during an emergency. Try to keep an unopened pack-

Hints from Heloise Columnist age of batteries with the flashlight, but not in it. This will preserve the battery life, and they will work when you need them most. Avoid temperature extremes of hot or cold, which can reduce how a battery performs, or cause it to leak and even rupture. — Heloise STORING HANDBAGS Dear Readers: Most women

have several handbags/purses. Here are some hints for storing the handbags you are not using: • Do not store handbags by the handle, especially if heavy. The handle or strap can end up getting damaged by the hook. • Handbags should be stuffed with tissue paper (preferably acidfree) when not in use. This will help the bag keep its shape. • If possible, store each handbag, if seldom used, in a dust cover or pillowcase. • Smaller bags can be stored in a hanging shoe bag or on shelves in bins. Special-occasion bags, such as clutches, that are rarely used should be stored in containers. — Heloise

CLEANING LITTER Dear Heloise: I use plastic grocery bags to clean my cat’s litter box, but I spent a lot of time adjusting the bag in my hand. Now, I place the bag into and around an inexpensive plastic wastebasket, and my job takes half the time. The bag is held wide open, and I no longer drop litter on the floor. I also use the plastic litter-box liners, but have one cat that tears holes in them. When I change the litter, I now put two liners in the box. When the top one becomes too shredded, I clean the waste and pour the remaining litter into the bottom liner, which is another timesaving hint. — Terrie S. in Indiana

ARLO & JANIS

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Friday, April 26, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You feel generous to others today, and you also feel generous to yourself. Specifically, you’re contemplating perhaps spending too much money on something deluxe and elegant. (Use caution.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Today you will use your energy to benefit others if you possibly can. You feel inspired by a higher cause to help those who are less fortunate than you. (Very noble.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You feel selfless today with regard to the welfare of others, which is why you will put their needs and wants before your own. You’re not being a martyr; it just feels right to do this. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Group activities, especially with charitable organizations, will be rewarding for you today if you know that you are part of a collective effort. Do what you can. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You might be able to influence bosses, parents or people in authority to take a charitable stand on an issue. Certainly, others perceive you as being helpful in a charitable way. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You will enjoy being surrounded by beauty today. This is why it’s a good idea to visit parks, beautiful buildings, museums and art galleries. Beautiful ideas will attract you as well. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) If sharing something or dividing an inheritance, don’t give away the farm today. Remember to have a healthy self-interest as well. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a good day to patch up problems with partnerships and friendships. People feel sympathetic and warm to each other today, so take advantage of this. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) If you can help a co-worker today, you will. Or perhaps you need a sympathetic ear? People are helpful today. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You’re in touch with your muse, which is why this is a wonderful day to explore creative expression, the arts, sports events and playful times with children. You might have a new vision of things. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Family members will be especially supportive to each other today because feelings of mutual sympathy exist. Help someone if you can. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Don’t be worried if you spend a lot of time daydreaming or escaping into a fantasy world. That’s just what’s happening today. (We all need a mental health day now and then.) YOU BORN TODAY Once you have created a system, an organization or even an important relationship, you will go to great lengths to nurture and support it. You are genuinely concerned for the welfare of others. You are dedicated and reliable. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will end or diminish in order to create room for something new. Birthdate of: Channing Tatum, actor; Tom Welling, actor; Carol Burnett, comedian/actress. (c) 2013 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Thursday, April 25, the 115th day of 2013. There are 250 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 25, 1983, 10-year-old Samantha Smith of Manchester, Maine, received a reply from Soviet leader Yuri V. Andropov to a letter she’d written expressing concern about possible nuclear war Andropov reassured Samantha that the Soviet Union did not want war, and he invited her to visit his country, a trip Samantha made the following July. On this date: • In 1507, a world map produced

by German cartographer Martin Waldseemueller contained the first recorded use of the term “America,” in honor of Italian navigator Amerigo Vespucci. • In 1862, during the Civil War, a Union fleet commanded by Flag Officer David G. Farragut captured the city of New Orleans. • In 1898, the United States formally declared war on Spain. • In 1901, New York Gov. Benjamin Barker Odell Jr. signed an automobile registration bill which imposed a 15 mph speed limit on highways. • In 1915, during World War I,

Allied soldiers invaded the Gallipoli Peninsula in an unsuccessful attempt to take the Ottoman Empire out of the war. • In 1944, the United Negro College Fund was founded. • In 1972, Polaroid Corp. introduced its SX-70 folding camera, which ejected self-developing photographs. • Today’s Birthdays: Actor Al Pacino is 73. Ballroom dance judge Len Goodman (TV: “Dancing with the Stars”) is 69. Actress Talia Shire is 67. Actor Jeffrey DeMunn is 66. Actor Hank Azaria is 49. Country musician Rory Feek (Joey + Rory) is 48.

Happiness is a cheese sandwich

Try this delicious rhubarb pie recipe

BY ELIZABETH KARMEL Associated Press

It is windy and looks like rain.This whole week seems to have been rainy and stormy. Yesterday we managed to get half of our laundry dried before the rain came. This morning I went to a few local Amish garage sales. I was able to find a few shirts for son Benjamin. He outgrew most of his shirts and needs some new ones very badly. I figure these shirts will help until I get a few

while, they came to mind recently as I thought about Mother’s Day. It’s perfect to eat in bed. It’s simple enough for the kids to make. And it’s deliciously comforting. There are two secrets to maximum happiness in this sandwich. First, always open the English muffins with a fork so that you preserve the nooks and crannies. Otherwise, it’s just flat bread. Second, pre-toast the English muffins without any toppings so that they are a bit crunchy before you put the cheese and tomato slice on top. This takes a little longer but vastly improves the texture of the finished sandwich. Also, the cheese must go beneath the tomato, otherwise the tomato slice will make the bread soggy. I add a small sprinkle of cheese to the top, too, because it looks finished and because I love the taste of browned cheese on the warm tomato. You can use your favorite cheese or try freshly grated Parmesan like I do. And if you don’t like oregano, use your favorite dried herb or a combination of herbs.

Happiness is… a warm cheese sandwich. It’s a sentiment as true today as when I read it as a child in my very first cookbook, the “Peanuts Cook Book.” It described the simple joy of slapping cheese on a slice of bread, topping it with tomato and oregano, then waiting patiently as it toasted to a bubble. In my family, the sandwich evolved. The bread was replaced by English muffins. The American cheese became cheddar or mozzarella. We kept the slab of tomato and sprinkle of dried oregano, which made all the difference in the world once it meshed with SHNS PHOTO the bubbling juices of the a delicious treat. tomato and the melted cheese.

In our hearts your memory lingers, sweetly tender, fond and true. There is not a day, dear Mother/Father, that we do not think of you. Thank you for loving and sharing, for giving and for caring. God bless you and keep you, until we meet again. Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure. You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure. Those we love we never lose, for always they will be, loved remembered, treasured, always in our memory. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. My heart still aches in sadness, my silent tears still flow. For what it meant to lose you, no one will ever know. Memory is a lovely lane, where hearts are ever true. A lane I so often travel down, because it leads to you. Oh how we wish he/she was here today, to see all the blessings we have. Yet somehow you know that he/she is guiding us on our paths. Tenderly we treasure the past with memories that will always last. Remembering you on this day, comforted by so many memories. In the hearts of those who loved you, you will always be there. If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. . Loved always, sadly missed. Forever remembered, forever missed. Suffer little children to come unto me.

East’s Snodgrass to kick in North-South game BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor jbrown@civitasmedia.com After a couple of odd phone calls and an awkward meeting, Ross Snodgrass was an all-star. Miami East’s senior kicker, who coach Max Current said may just be the first Viking to play in the Ohio North-South All-Star Classic high school football game, was selected by Harrison Central coach Justin Kropka to play for the South team — based largely on just word of mouth and statistics.

CASSTOWN “It was interesting how it all transpired,” Current said. “I was in my office, and the phone rings. It’s Kropka, and he says ‘me and my assistants have been looking over our roster, and we noticed we don’t have a kicker. One of my assistants told me that Miami East has a good kicker. Do you?’ “He said ‘I heard he had 20 touchbacks this year.’ I said ‘he had 21.’ He said ‘do you think he’d want to kick in the NorthSouth game? It’s funny, because I don’t even know his name — but

I have to have him.’” “I was at Edison, and I noticed I’d gotten a strange call during class,” Snodgrass said. “I went to the athletic office at Miami East, and the secretary said I needed to go see (Athletic Director Scott) Donaldson. I go to him, and he tells me I have to go see coach Current right away. “Coach Current tells me that he got a call asking if I wanted to kick in an all-star game, but they had to have an answer right away — and I couldn’t answer my phone to give one. So he said he gave one for me.”

Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos throws against the Chicago Cubs during the first inning Wednesday in Cincinnati.

Latos lets loose Shuts down Cubs in 1-0 Reds victory CINCINNATI (AP) — Todd Frazier gave Mat Latos all the run support he needed, and Latos gave the Cincinnati Reds exactly what they needed to finish off a 10-game homestand in style. Latos retired the first 10 batters and 15 of the first 16 he faced and mostly spared an overworked bullpen, and Frazier hit a long home run and the Reds beat the Chicago Cubs 1-0 Wednesday. “This is what we wanted so

bad,” Reds manager Baker said. “This sets us straight for a couple of days.” With one out in the sixth inning of a scoreless tie, Frazier blasted a 2-1 pitch from Jeff Samardzija 480 feet to straightaway center field to increase his team-leading home run total to six. The homer, which bounced high off the batter’s eye, is the longest at Great American Ball Park this season and the seventh-longest in the facility’s 11year history.

“I was just trying to get a fastball,” said Frazier, who became the first Cincinnati player to homer in a 1-0 win since Sean Casey against St. Louis on Aug. 26, 2004. “I haven’t seen too many lately. I got one, and I took advantage of it. I took a couple of steps and figured it was out, but I didn’t know how far until I saw it hit the (batter’s eye).” Latos (1-0), the victim of two

Greenville got a pair of wins on Wednesday, though. At third singles, Javi Bixler defeated Jesse Wright 3-6, 6-2, 6-4, and at first doubles, Sam Boweres and Evan Kiser defeated Matt Alexander and Ian Stutz 6-4, 6-3. “We had three matches to play today, both doubles and third singles,” Troy coach Mark Goldner said. “Hidekazu Asami and Matt Schmitt pulled out the team victory, winning the second set after trailing 0-1 to begin play. “Jesse Wright played a good third set but just came up short in a 6-4 loss. Luke and Chris had already won their matches on April 16.” Troy, now 8-3 and 2-1 in the GWOC North, hosts Sidney today. • Rainout Roundup The storms that hit the area late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning caused much of Wednesday’s athletic activities to be postponed — some of them for a second time. Troy’s softball game at Centerville, already a makeup from April 11, was postponed. It was moved to May 1. Tippecanoe tennis’ home match against one of the best teams in the area, Oakwood, was also rained out. No makeup date was immediately available. Also postponed with no makeup date were Bradford’s baseball and softball games at Tri-County North.

Troy, Tipp assistant coach leaves legacy BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor dfong@civitasmedia.com Some artists work in paint, some work in clay and some work in marble. Billy Moore’s medium of choice was linebackers — and in 30 years of coaching, he helped create some true works of art at the position. Moore, 62, passed away Friday after a battle with cancer. In addition to coaching football, wrestling and baseball at Vandalia-Butler High School, he served 12 years as an assistant football coach at Troy (1994-2005) and the past three

VANDALIA years at Tippecanoe High School. In addition to serving as defensive coordinator at Troy, Moore also served as linebackers coach, working most notably with 1996 Associated Press Division I Defensive Player of the Year Jason Manson, and Kris Dielman, who earned All-Ohio honors at middle linebacker for the Trojans in 1998 before an All-Pro career as an offensive lineman with the San Diego Chargers. “He was great at working with the kids,” said former Troy High School coach Steve Nolan, who is

now the head coach at Troy Christian High School. “He did a great job with our defense, especially the linebackers. He worked with some pretty great linebackers over the years at Troy and absolutely helped make them better players. “He was a great guy. Even after he left my staff, we remained friends through the years.” Three years ago, Tippecanoe head coach Charlie Burgbacher was looking to fill a vacancy on his coaching staff. He sent out a mass email to teachers and staff within the district, and quickly head back from Moore’s daughter, Denise, a

French teacher at Tippecanoe High School. “She said she knew somebody who might be interested — and it turned out to be a pretty good find for us,” Burgbacher said. “He had a great rapport with the kids and brought a calming effect to our coaching staff. I wouldn’t say he was laid back, but he was very detailed in what he did and the kids really responded well to him. “The kids really responded to Bill’s coaching. I come into contact with a lot of people — I can’t even count the number — who live in Vandalia who don’t know Billy Moore. He touched a lot of lives.”

Snodgrass

1st new BCS title game to be in Dallas

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Snodgrass averaged 53.4 yards per kickoff this season for the Vikings and piled up 21 touchbacks. During his junior season, he only had three touchbacks and averaged 48.6 yards per kickoff, and as a sophomore he averaged 47.7 yards per kickoff and had seven touchbacks. Snodgrass also was 5 for 8 on field goal attempts this season, connecting from 37 yards out twice for his longest makes, and he was selected as the second team AllSouthwest District kicker. “He’s a full-time soccer player and has been a part-time football player during his four years,” Current said. “He split time with Michael (Fellers) kicking last year, but this year I figured we’d split up their duties. I had Ross kick off and Michael do the point-after touchdowns, and with field goals we’d just make our decision based on who was kicking well during practice that week. “Ross kicked one PAT against Coldwater in the playoffs this year, and he

set all of the records at the school for kickoffs. He’s improved a good bit at it.” At first, Snodgrass didn’t really know what he’d gotten himself into. “I was kind of awestruck at first. I didn’t really know what anyone was talking about,” he said. “Then I got the official letter in the mail and went to the official team meeting, and I realized just how big a deal it was. I’m really excited now.” And as for coach Kropka, who didn’t know the name of the player he was choosing, how does he feel about the call? “They were practicing over at Kaplan University, and Ross was kicking the ball across a street into some houses,” Current said with a laugh. “They had to stop before he got the cops called on them. “If you can get the kickoff into the end zone, you don’t have to worry about tackling anybody. And that’s what Ross does. I think he’s pretty happy with the call he made. We’re all really excited for Ross, and I’m proud of him.”

OKC edges Houston, takes 2-0 series lead OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook each scored 29 points, and the Oklahoma City Thunder recovered after squandering a 15-point lead in the fourth quarter to beat the Houston Rockets 105-102 on Wednesday night and take a 2-0 series lead. Durant hit the goahead 3-pointer with 2:28 to play, and the Thunder didn’t relinquish the lead after that. Durant missed a free throw with 1 second left, but Houston was out of timeouts and Carlos Delfino couldn’t connect on a desperation shot at the final buzzer. James Harden scored 36 points and spearheaded a 21-2 comeback that wiped out the big deficit and put the Rockets up 95-91. But the top-seeded Thunder were able to respond and protect the home-court advantage they’d spent all season earning. Game 3 is Saturday night in Houston. The Thunder’s big lead melted away with nine straight empty posses-

sions as the Rockets mixed in a zone defense. Harden was able to get into the lane to create his own opportunities, and he also kicked the ball out to set up two 3-pointers by Delfino. His second 3, from the right wing, provided a four-point lead with 3:27 to go. Pacers 113, Hawks 98 INDIANAPOLIS — Paul George followed his triple-double by scoring a playoff career-high 27 points to lead Indiana past Atlanta 113-98 on Wednesday night. The Pacers lead the best-of-seven first-round series 2-0 and have won four straight home games over the Hawks. It’s the first time Indiana has held a 2-0 series lead since the 2004 Eastern Conference semifinals. George, playing in his first game since being named the league’s Most Improved Player, was 11 of 21 from the field, had eight rebounds, three assists and four steals and again played well defensively. George Hill had 22 points.

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — The grandest stage in sports was too much for the guys who are putting together the College Football Playoff to pass up. The BCS conference commissioners announced Wednesday that Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, edged Tampa, Fla., in the bidding to be the site of the first title cham-

pionship in the new playoff system. “The stadium itself was the biggest determiner,” BCS executive director Bill Hancock said about the $1.2 billion dollar, 100,000plus seat home of the NFL’s Cowboys and the Cotton Bowl. “It’s still the stadium with a capital ‘T.’” The game will be held Jan. 12, 2015.

“We couldn’t be more excited about bringing college football’s biggest game to Cowboys Stadium,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in a statement. “Rest assured, we all pledge to do everything we can to make sure this game exceeds everyone’s highest expectations.” The final three sites for the semifinal rotation also

were announced and Cowboys Stadium came up a winner again. The Cotton Bowl will be part of the six-bowl rotation, along with the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta and the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz. The Holiday Bowl in San Diego also bid for a spot in the semifinal rotation, but couldn’t pull the upset.

Cavs re-hire Brown as coach INDEPENDENCE (AP) — Three years later, Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert owned up to a monumental mistake. He’s trying to correct it. Mike Brown gave him a second chance. Conceding publicly for the first time that he should have never fired Brown as Cleveland’s coach during the turbulent summer of 2010, Gilbert said Wednesday he’s thrilled to be able to re-hire the most successful coach in franchise history. Brown, who led the Cavs to the NBA playoffs in each of his five seasons with the club, has reunited with a team he guided to its greatest success and the owner who fired him after Cleveland was eliminated from the 2010 playoffs not long before LeBron James decided to bolt as a free agent. “Yeah, it was a mistake. Sure it was a mistake,” Gilbert said of his choice to sack Brown. “We have the benefit of hindsight right now, and in hindsight it was a mistake. That summer we went through three years ago was a unique time for us as a franchise and the uncertainty on a lot of levels. We are very happy that we get to rectify any position we took back then. “Maybe he’s meant to be here.” Brown was re-introduced by the Cavs at their training facility following a lightning-fast second courtship with the Cavs he described as “surreal.” Flanked by Gilbert and general manager Chris Grant, Brown was accompanied by his wife, Carolyn, and their teenage sons just as he was in 2005 when Gilbert took a shot on a then-relatively unknown assistant from Indiana for the first time. Brown, who was fired just five games into this season by the Los Angeles Lakers, said he has no reservations about returning to

Cleveland Cavaliers coach Mike Brown yells at his team in the third quarter of Game 1 against the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the NBA playoffs April 17, 2010 in Cleveland. work for Gilbert or coaching again in Cleveland. “It’s funny how life works out,” he said. “But the one thing that I do I know is from afar, Cleveland has always been special in my heart and in my family’s heart. You feel the commitment from a guy like Dan Gilbert and if it happens, you feel like one of the luckiest guys on the planet. “Things work in a mysterious way and I’m excited to have the opportunity again.” Gilbert opened the news conference by saying, “Welcome to Mike Brown 2.0. We certainly enjoyed 1.0.” Gilbert later joked that he “didn’t want to do a George Steinbrenner imitation or anything,” referring to the late New York Yankees owner’s penchant for hiring and firing manager Billy Martin. Less than a week after firing Byron Scott, the Cavs

signed Brown to a guaranteed four-year contract with the club holding an option for the fifth year. The deal is worth approximately $20 million. It’s not immediately known how much of Brown’s owed salary from the Lakers is being absorbed by the Cavs. Brown went 272-138 in his five seasons with Cleveland and, obviously helped by James, got the team beyond the first round of the playoffs each year. He was named the league’s top coach in 2009, led the Cavs to consecutive 60-win seasons and his .652 winning percentage is sixth highest in league history for coaches with at least 400 games. He was the best coach available by far to the Cavs, who gauged Phil Jackson’s interest before moving forward. They re-hired Brown quickly before anyone else had a shot. The Phoenix Suns are

believed to have contacted Brown, who replaced Scott, the man who replaced him in 2010. “I chose to come here,” Brown said. “I probably could have waited. I had another team that had talked to me about possibly taking over. I just didn’t feel it fit. So when I had this opportunity come across my table, initially it was a shocker but I got back to what I thought was the foundation of what these two guys have done and what they believe. Once that happened for me it was easy.” Of course, Brown’s return raises more speculation about what impact it could have on the possibility of James one day playing for the Cavs again. James can opt out of his contract with Miami as early as the summer of 2014 and the threetime league MVP has said he could imagine a second stint in Cleveland. On Wednesday night, James said he was “very happy” Brown was back with the Cavs and called him a “really good coach, very defensive-minded coach. “ Gilbert sidestepped any speculation about James. “We honestly talk about today, this year,” Gilbert said. “All that stuff in the media, we can’t control that. We understand why it’s there. We’re focused on this year. You can’t even speculate in the next 12 months on what’s going to happen and where we’re going to be or where anybody else is going to be. You focus on right now.” Scott was fired last week by Gilbert following his third straight losing season, one of injuries, blown leads and long losing streaks. The Cavs dropped 16 of their last 18 under Scott and Gilbert made the move because he felt he wasn’t seeing enough progress and was most disappointed by the Cavs’ defense.

Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos tips his hat to fans as he leaves the field in the eighth inning against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday in Cincinnati. Latos earned the win pitching seven scoreless innings as their 1-0 win.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 blown saves among his first four starts this season allowed four hits and a walk with four strikeouts. He had to rely solely on his two- and four-seam fastballs, too. It turned out not to be a problem. “In the bullpen, I had a really good slider and changeup,” said Latos, who’s strung together 11 consecutive scoreless innings. “I don’t know what the hell happened. It’s tough. Everybody in the big leagues can hit the fastball. I had to focus on hitting spots,

keeping the ball down and away and getting them to hit it on the ground.” Jonathan Broxton replaced Latos with two runners on base and nobody out in the eighth. Both runners moved up on Cody Ransom’s sacrifice bunt, but pinch-hitter Alfonso Soriano struck out and shortstop Zack Cozart went deep behind second base to flag down David DeJesus’s grounder and throw him out to end the inning. “I was going to throw it regardless, because there were two outs,” Cozart said.

“I saw out of the corner of my eye that he wasn’t too close to the bag. I’ve been struggling at the plate lately, so to make a play like that makes you feel pretty good.” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said that’s just the way it’s been going for the Cubs, who are 1-5 on their current road trip. “That was an unbelievable play in that situation,” he said. Aroldis Chapman pitched the ninth for his fourth save. Latos’s effort left Cincinnati’s starting pitchers with a combined 5-

0 record and 1.54 ERA on the homestand. Samardzija (1-4) had his fourth consecutive loss after beating Pittsburgh on Opening Day. The right-hander allowed seven hits and three walks with eight strikeouts and a wild pitch. The Reds had baserunners in each of the first five innings, including the third, which Devin Mesoraco and Latos led off with singles before Samardzija struck out Shin-Soo Choo, Cozart and Joey Votto the top three batters in Cincinnati’s lineup.

CHICAGO (AP) — Cleveland Indians starter Zach McAllister was able to wiggle through some early wildness against the Chicago White Sox with minimal damage. It was a big blow in the fifth off the bat of Alex Rios that was McAallister’s ultimate unraveling. Rios hit a two-run homer and Jeff Keppinger had two hits and drove in a run for the White Sox in a 3-2 win over the Indians on Wednesday. “He had to dodge some traffic, especially early,” Indians manager Terry Francona said of McAllister. “But because of the use of his fastball, he keeps guys off the scoreboard. And they almost left with one run, he got ahead of Rios and fastball came across the wrong part of the plate even though it was elevated and he ran into it for two runs, two big runs. He kept competing and he kept them off the board.” McAllister gave up five hits, three earned runs and walked five while striking out six in 5 2/3 innings. The Indians’ bullpen was even better, extending its scoreless streak to 19 consecutive innings. Rios connected in the

fifth, driving the ball to left on a 0-2 pitch for his teamhigh sixth homer and a 3-0 lead. Unfortunately for the Indians, White Sox starter Jose Quintana was just a hair better. Quintana breezed through three perfect innings, and then worked out of a jam in the fourth after the Indians loaded the bases. Brantley Michael reached on a leadoff single and moved to third on Mark Reynolds’ one-out double to the right-field corner. Nick Swisher walked to load the bases, but Ryan Raburn grounded into an inningending double play. “(Quintana) just made pitches when he had to,” Raburn said. “We battled and battled and put guys on and we just didn’t get that one hit to put us over the top. He pitched well, we can’t take nothing from him. We just didn’t quite get the job done.” A year ago Quintana was just trying to hang on to a spot in Chicago’s starting rotation. His position is secure now, especially after another strong outing ended the team’s a four-game losing streak. “He’s been pitching great,” said White Sox manRobin Ventura. ager “Maturity-wise he’s just getting strong as far as the makeup of his belief that he’s a big leaguer. Last year, he was just trying to survive and it kind of felt game-togame for a while.” Quintana (2-0) allowed two runs and four hits in five-plus innings to help the White Sox earn a split of the rain-shortened series. Cleveland’s first three batters of the sixth got on base, with Jason Kipnis singling in Drew Stubbs. Nate Jones then replaced Quintana and Reynolds hit a sacrifice fly to cut Chicago’s lead to 3-2.
