Scout leader ousted in Ohio The first-graders in Ohio Pack 109’s Tiger Scouts didn’t know or care their den mother was a lesbian — at least not until the Boy Scouts of America threw her out over the organization’s ban on gays. Now, parents who were aware of Jennifer Tyrell’s sexual orientation well before she took the boys on campouts and helped them carve race cars for the annual Pinewood Derby have rallied to her defense in a case that has re-ignited the debate over the Scouts’ policy.

Shuttle to arrive in N.Y. Any new arrival to New York City wants to see the sights — and the space shuttle Enterprise is no different. Enterprise is scheduled to arrive in the city Friday, riding on top of a modified jumbo jet. Its trip was to include lowaltitude flyovers over parts of the city and landmarks including the Statue of Liberty and the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum on Manhattan’s west side. The shuttle had been scheduled to arrive earlier in the week but NASA pushed it back because of bad weather. The shuttle prototype was housed at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington but will soon be making its home at the Intrepid, where it will be “the largest and most significant space artifact in the entire Northeast,” said Susan Marenoff-Zausner, Intrepid’s president.

start in the musical realm. After playing roles such as the matchmaker in “Fiddler on the Roof” and Belle in “Beauty and the Beast,” she said this role tops them all. “It’s great. I have wanted to be Millie ever since I saw it my freshman year at Wright State,” Rathmann said. The senior said there are many things about that role she enjoys and she is excited to just have fun with it as her final role. “It’s just that she is so strong and independent,” Rathmann said. “She has those core values so I can relate to her and her songs are in a real belty tone that I really like.” Throughout the show, Rathmann said there are many times the audience will find themselves giggling. “I like everything with the Chinese brothers because they are hilarious,” she said. “The tapping is really cool.

Hobart Mario Nova, general sales manager of Dickman Supply, participated in the expo for the first time. The company has branches in Sidney, Greenville and Celina. “I live in Troy and we sell to a lot of Troy companies, and we wanted to show off our energy-savings products,” Nova said. Four people from Dickman Supply were at the booth. Nova said they appreciated the opportunity to “be

a part of the community and get our (company) name out front.” Richard Bender, United Way of Troy executive director, helped run a booth in past years when he was in the banking business. But this year, as director of a nonprofit, he was able to walk around and explore all the booths. “It’s a great event because I come to meet my clients and meet people I don’t see on a regular basis,” Bender said. “I was just telling someone that it’s like a family reunion.”

Simmons is familiar with leading a congregation. He built and led a church in Piqua before becoming pastor of a Charleston, W. Va. church, where he built an addition to the building. The Upper Room Worship Center congregation started with only eight in 1998 and has grown to more than 200. Simmons said his wife Maxine, who died of cancer two months ago, inspired him to build the original Tipp City church. “She was the one that was very instrumental in getting me involved in the church ministry. She was my right hand. We did everything together,” Simmons said. For the Simmons, ministry is a family affair. His sons Matt and Aaron work as associate pastor and assistant pastor, respectively. His daughter Sheryl Queen is worship leader and other daughter Leah Morando heads children’s ministry. Ministry groups are offered every day of the week except Saturday. With his professional background in criminal justice and rehabilitation,

As for the show in general, Kolber said area residents should treat themselves this weekend and attend the show. “There is something for everyone in the show; there is something for the romantic, there is comedy and there are some sad parts,” she said. “It’s full of great dancing, talented kids and it’s an all around fun show.” The show will begin at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday in the high school auditorium, 151 W.

We take this show, throw our own personality on it and make it beautiful.” Fellow actors Jorian Johnson and Alison Kolber said they are enjoying their roles as well and each have their own favorite part about the show. For Johnson, he said his favorite part is an office scene as he plays the role of Trevor Graydon. “The speed test scene when Millie applies for the job for me,” Johnson said. “Throughout the scene the

Trustees discuss cleanup efforts For the Troy Daily News MONROE TOWNSHIP — Cleanup efforts were addressed by the Monroe Township Trustees during its April 16 meeting for not only township cemetery properties, but especially at the 4 E. Main St. township building in Tipp City after a paint vandalism incident that occurred over the April 14-15 weekend. Cleaning the building’s glass and recovering the sprayed painted graffiti on the brick and stucco at this 1915 building will be remedied by staff members after determining the best way to avoid damaging the old brick. On the normal springtime checklist thus far this year for maintenance staff also includes manicuring of flower

beds; trimming and mowing; foundation frame pouring; and road berming. The township board has agreed to an early termination of a lease at the township building’s Suite 200 with Integrity Marketing and American Veterans Institute by Tara Engel, and at the same suite retroactive back to April 1, the office space will be leased by The Downtown Tipp City Partnership of which Engel is serving as its new director. It was noted that the Monroe Township Water and Sewer District Commission is reviewing engineering firms for future projects, and implementing a public records program. The township also is in the process of reviewing

repairs to be performed this year on Worley Road, and working on a storm/ground water quality survey for residents as part of a public education requirement for the permit with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. There were 90 drop-offs on April 14 at the monthly recycling event, always held at the Michaels Road township facility the second Saturday of each month. Bills paid at the April 16 meeting equaled $27,053.15. Additional functions announced at the trustees’ meeting included the quarterly Tri-Agency meeting 6 p.m. April 30 hosted by the township, and the next township board meeting at 7 p.m. May 7.

JobsOhio rules could shield public records COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s top lawyer says a broadly worded bill creating rules for Ohio’s new economic development agency could turn otherwise public records private. The Columbus Dispatch reports Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine plans to ask Gov. John Kasich and state lawmakers to reword the legislation. The bill cleared the Ohio House on Wednesday, and heads next to the state Senate. DeWine questions the provision that says records

created or received by the nonprofit JobsOhio are not public “regardless of who may have custody of the records.” He said he believes that could shield documents from public view that state agencies share with JobsOhio. A Kasich spokesman said the administration doesn’t necessarily agree with DeWine’s position, but will work to address his concern. Confidentiality is considered important to JobsOhio’s negotiations.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Leaders in the Ohio House delayed a vote Wednesday night on a contentious measure that would repeal a new election law that reduces early voting opportunities in the presidential battleground state. The new law has been on hold since September, when opponents gathered enough signatures to get a referendum put before voters this fall. The repeal measure was poised for passage by the Wednesday Republican-controlled House when the House speaker moved to delay the vote. House Speaker William Batchelder told reporters the delay came after he got word that opponents who brought the ballot question might be willing to strike a deal with lawmakers and possibly remove the referendum from the ballot themselves. The Fair Elections Ohio campaign gathered more than 300,000 valid signatures from Ohioans to get a referendum on Nov. 6 ballots to ask voters whether they wanted to get rid of the overhaul law. Among other changes, the overhaul trims the swing state’s in-person early voting window from 35 days before Election Day to 17 days, and the period for absentee voting by mail from 35 days to 21. It also cuts off in-person early voting on the Friday evening before Election Day. Supporters of the repeal measure contend it would leave in place old rules governing Ohio elections before the overhaul law was passed last summer. But the repeal bill also would reaffirm a technical change made last year in a separate bill that resulted in early voting ending on the weekend before the election. Democrats and Fair Elections Ohio want those final days of in-person voting restored. Otherwise, they say the bill is not a “clean” repeal and would not effectively give voters the same voting options they had before the overhaul bill’s passage. House Minority Leader Armond Budish, DBeachwood, said he alerted Batchelder that the

Fair Elections Ohio campaign would be willing to discuss possibly removing the referendum if the bill was a straight repeal that included wording to allow people to vote on the busy in-person voting days right before the election. Batchelder has expressed reservations about a legislative repeal of the bill that’s the subject of referendum. He says there is no precedent for it, and it’s unclear what the courts would do. Batchelder said that he did not think negotiations with Fair Elections Ohio were an option prior to Wednesday when he was approached by Budish, but he said he is willing to let the discussions continue. Greg Moore, campaign director of Fair Elections Ohio, said the group has gotten pretty far in their talks with some Senate Republicans and House Democratic lawmakers, but there was no agreement before the bill was called up before the House was to vote. Moore said the delayed vote in the House allows them and Fair Elections Ohio more time to work to get the final voting days included in the repeal bill. It also allows his group to examine any legal concerns they have about a legislative repeal of the bill and its possible removal from the ballot. He said a true repeal of the measure would restore final weekend voting, and the Legislature would have to completely repeal the overhaul measure before it could possibly be taken off the ballots. He said there were some in his coalition who believe that the “right of referendum is sacred” and are hesitant to remove it. “We’re very sensitive to the right of the referendum and how this could impact future citizens’ initiatives,” Moore said. Moore said talks started Wednesday morning and they have included the possibility of also restoring weekend voting in a Senate measure that’s separate from the repeal bill. “We didn’t wake up this morning thinking that this was where we were going to arrive,” Moore said.

Supreme court moves to center of presidential race WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court, suddenly at the heart of presidential politics, is preparing what could be blockbuster rulings on health care and immigration shortly before the fall election. The court, sometimes an afterthought in presidential elections, is throwing a new element of uncertainty into the campaign taking shape between President Barack Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney. Sharply divided between four conservatives, four liberals and one conservative-

leaning swing justice, the court already is viewed as being nearly as partisan as Congress. Within weeks it will rule on the contentious 2010 Democratic-crafted health care overhaul and a Republican-backed Arizona law that’s seen as a model for cracking down on illegal immigrants. Obama sometimes seems to be running against the court, or at least its conservative members. Whether that will sway voters in November is unclear. The public receives far less information and visual imagery of the Supreme Court than it does of the White House and Congress. An anti-court strategy by Obama “will fire up his base, but I doubt it will make any bigger impact on swing voters,” said Republican consultant John Feehery.

end up being in the black. In the past, two Miami County newspapers reported during the new high school building project there was approximately $1 million that was considered under budget. I am curious as to what hap pened to that money. Did we actually receive this money? Was it returned to OSFC? Or, was it spent on other district expenses, and if so, for what? I assume there is use restrictions applied to that under budget money. I was

wondering whether the Miami East Board of Education could explain or clarify this process concerning the $1 million under budget that was reported by a local newspaper on Aug. 28, 2011, when the school district was announcing the formal building dedication ceremony. As a concerned taxpayer, I am confused. Can someone enlighten me? Thanks in advance for any information.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Telegraph, London, on NATO in Afghanistan: The brazen series of attacks launched by the Taliban recently against high-profile targets throughout Afghanistan was intended to demonstrate that, far from being a spent force, the movement still has the ability to create mayhem. By launching a simultaneous assault on the main NATO compound in Kabul, the presidential palace, foreign embassies and several other targets, the Taliban sought to start its “spring offensive” in spectacular fashion. In the event, the attacks ended in failure, although the fact that well-armed groups of Taliban fighters were able to penetrate the heavily fortified military, governmental and diplomatic compounds in the capital inevitably raises worrying questions about the effectiveness of security arrangements: as Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president said, the ease with which the Taliban breached the security cordon suggests a major intelligence failure on the part of both Afghan and NATO forces. Where does this leave us? The Taliban’s intent was almost certainly psychological — to shatter any feeling of security in the capital, and focus minds on what will As I happen when the Westerners depart.

It is a radical broadening phone number. of the law of self-defense that made the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, a black teen walking through a gated community in which he was a guest, seem nearly as preordained as any Greek tragedy. And on that human tragedy, the death of a teen, is built a social disaster — the appearance of life being cheap, black life especially, and of impunity for those who kill because they insisted on standing their ground. Or who claimed that’s what they did. The principle that a person’s home is a castle, and entitled to a deadly defense, has been by and large extended into the streets, in Florida and a score of other states. Stand Your Ground laws create something close to a presumption that an assailant intends to use deadly force, and that it is therefore reasonable to use deadly force in return. Killing in self-defense no longer needs to be necessary to pass legal muster — a radical departure. Florida’s numbers of justifiable homicide cases have nearly tripled since the 2005 law came in. Before the law, there were 12 a year, on average; and now there are 33. In Texas and Georgia, justifiable homicide cases have nearly doubled since those states passed Stand Your Ground laws. Most states with such laws have experienced large jumps in justifiable homicide cases, even as homicide rates have stayed flat. No wonder the Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence warns visitors not to argue with Floridians. “No retreat” gives a man with a gun the right to the last word.

It is time I come clean about cleaning You never really get to know someone until you’ve volunteered to help them clean their bathrooms. Will someone get my mother a glass of water? I’m pretty sure she just choked a bit. No I’m not ill. Let me explain. I know I’ve spent countless Fridays telling you all how amazing all my friends are and how much sanity they bring to my life. And the lack of a social life is how I can best explain how I happened to find myself at the doorstep yesterday morning of my tried and true best friend “Triplet” practically begging to help her clean her beautiful custom home. “Oh my goodness turn on Dr. Phil and hand me the mop,” were the words I said as I greeted her mid-morning as I helped her clean her house for her son Ryan’s second birthday party tomorrow. We tackled the kitchen first. I find custom cherry cabinets just as sexy as a David Beckham underwear ad — both are chiseled to perfection and beautiful to look at. And there’s something nice about one’s reflection in a

Melanie Yingst Troy Daily News Executive Editor sparkling stainless- steel refrigerator door after scrubbing tiny baby fingerprints from the cold metal surface. Now I’m not blessed with the gift of OCD in terms of cleaning my own home or cleaning much of anything for that matter. Although, I do take pride in the fact my kid goes to school with spotless ears, maybe not much of anything else, but my kid’s ears are Marine Corps clean. I just like cleaning other people’s houses in some sort of weird sociological experiment sort of way. Kind of like how every family has their own way of making chili soup sort of way. Everybody’s way is different, but no matter how you go about it, it’s still chili soup.

— Bonnie Sullenberger Fletcher

Triplet’s husband pretended to busy himself outdoors by attempting to assemble a largerthan-life swing set in 50 miles per hour winds. He did happen to find a spare moment to say “hello” to me with his usual onefingered hand gesture as I watched from the dining room window. I pray for him daily. As Triplet’s husband stopped inside to make some smart-donkey remark, Triplet quickly hushed his words of encouragement. “Hush. She’s mopping our floors for free!” I heard her say from the garage. In a flurry of a few hours, the floors were mopped, the bathrooms cleaned and random accumulation was sent to the basement. I was THAT bored folks. OK and to be honest, I needed a column really, really bad for today. It’s not just Triplet’s house. I’ve helped clean my sister’s home when I visit while she is at work. Maybe it’s the high tech gadgets or the wide assortment of cleaning stuff they have at their homes which makes it fun for me.

Honestly, the real reason I volunteered was because I know how much easier it is to complete a despicable task with an extra set of hands and how fast time goes when you have someone to talk to as chore after chore is completed. Growing up, my twin sister and I always split each household chore in half. I’d mow one half of the yard, she’d do the other side. I would unload the top part of the dishwasher, she’d do the bottom half. These days, some of my sister and I’s best conversations occur via cell phones, when we are both cleaning our homes and as one of us empties a closet or sorts through our sons’ vast collection of toys. Sometimes it’s just nice to have someone to talk to when the dust and cat fur is flying. It’s spending time with those you care about to get the less than fun parts of life accomplished. I just don’t do windows.

(AP) — The first-graders in Ohio Pack 109’s Tiger Scouts didn’t know or care their den mother was a lesbian — at least not until the Boy Scouts of America threw her out over the organization’s ban on gays. Now, parents who were aware of Jennifer Tyrell’s sexual orientation well before she took the boys on campouts and helped them carve race cars for the annual Pinewood Derby have rallied to her defense in a case that has re-ignited the debate over the Scouts’ policy. “I teach my children to judge people on their actions,” said Rob Dunn, a father in Bridgeport, a village of about 2,000 across the Ohio River from Wheeling, W.Va. “Whether you agree with their lifestyle or not.” The Boy Scouts of America, whose oath calls for members to be “morally straight,” maintains that as a private organization it has the right to exclude gays and atheists from its ranks. That stance was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2000 but has led many state and local governments to deny support for the Scouts. Male scout leaders who are gay have long been barred, but instances of women being excluded are not well-documented and probably rare. A lesbian cou-

BERNIE: The real stars of Richard Linklater’s black comedy are, unquestionably, the townspeople of Carthage, Texas. In documentarylike interviews, the East Texas locals (a mix of real Carthage folk and Texas actors) fill the film from start to finish: a gang of colorful gossips whose heavy accents and wry prattle essentially narrate the story. What drives their fascination is the true-life tale of a mannered, devout mortician, Bernie Tiede (Jack Black), who in 1997 was arrested for killing the elderly millionaire heiress Marjorie Nugent (a bitter, hardened Shirley MacLaine). The remarkable thing about the case is just how out of character such an act is for Tiede. As Black plays him, he’s cartoonishly cheerful — not just a churchgoing man, but a member of the choir and just about every other community group. The film never quite rises to full comedy, but remains locked in a state of satirical curiosity, marveling at its own contradictions. Black, who memorably starred in Linklater’s “School of Rock,” never gives in to a punch line, but his grand, absurdist performance is closer to parody than realism. He has a number of musical moments, including belting out “Seventy-Six Trombones” in full regalia. This is Linklater’s Preston Sturges comedy, an ode to small-town Texas life, where civil society is prized so much as to outweigh a little ol’ thing like murder. With an excellent Matthew McConaughey as a self-promoting district attorney. PG-13 for some violent images and brief strong language. 104 minutes. Three stars out of four. — Jake Coyle, AP Entertainment Writer THE FIVE-YEAR ENGAGEMENT: The problem that plagues so many Judd Apatow productions — the one that keeps good comedies from being great ones — unfortunately exists here, too. It’s a matter of knowing when to say when, of knowing which bits should be trimmed and which should have been cut altogether. “The Five-Year Engagement” is so scattered and overlong, it really feels like it lasts five years, and even the inherent likability of stars Jason Segel and Emily Blunt cannot overcome the film’s pervasive sense of strain. It becomes so tortured, it almost gets to the point where you hope these two will break up for good, just because it’s the pragmatic thing to do and because it would finally wrap things up. And that’s a shame, because the movie reunites Segel with Nicholas Stoller; the two also co-wrote 2008’s “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” one of the more well-balanced Apatow productions, with Stoller once again directing and Segel starring as the doughy everyman. As in that earlier film, “The Five-Year Engagement” touches on themes of love found and lost in a serious way, and to its credit it does find some moments of emotional truth amid the inconsistent laughs. But man, it can be a messy slog to get to them. Segel and Blunt star as a newly engaged couple who encounter multiple obstacles on the way to the altar, including cross-country moves, career ambitions and family issues. If it sounds like a drag, that’s probably because it is, and wacky supporting players including Brian Posehn and Chris Parnell don’t exactly liven things up. R for sexual content and language throughout. 124 minutes. Two stars out of four. — Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS: The hype has been building for years and it couldn’t possibly be more deafening at this point. After a series of summer blockbusters that individually introduced Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America, all these characters come together alongside several other friends and foes. And with director and co-writer Joss Whedon, they couldn’t be in better hands. He’s pulled off the tricky feat of juggling a large ensemble cast and giving everyone a chance to shine, of balancing splashy set pieces with substantive ideology. Stuff gets blown up real good in beautifully detailed 3-D, but the film as a whole is never a mess from a narrative perspective. Whedon keeps a tight rein on some potentially unwieldy material, and the result is a film that simultaneously should please purists (one of which he is) as well as those who aren’t necessarily comic-book aficionados. He also stays true to the characters while establishing a tone that’s very much his own. As he did with the recent horror hit “The Cabin in the Woods,” which he co-wrote and produced, Whedon has come up with a script that’s cheeky and breezy, full of witty banter and sly pop-culture shout-outs as well as selfreferential humor, one that moves with an infectious energy that (almost) makes you lose track of its twoand-a-half-hour running time. Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), the head of S.H.I.E.L.D., assembles a dream team of superheroes to retrieve the Tesseract, the cosmic blue cube that gives its bearer unlimited power, when the evil Loki (Tom Hiddleston) descends from Asgard and steals it. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) are among those on the case — once they stop fighting each other, that is. PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action throughout and a mild drug reference. 143 minutes. Three and a half stars out of four. — Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic THE RAVEN: What would Edgar Allan Poe be doing if he were alive today? Clawing at the inside of his coffin, desperate to get at the people who used and abused his diabolical tales as the basis for this pile of cinematic bird poo. Like carrion feeders themselves, director James McTeigue and his colleagues peck at Poe’s stories to fill out a plot that sounds sort of cool in concept — a serial killer using the author’s fiction as a blueprint for ghastly murders — but is featherheaded in execution. John Cusack makes a terrible Poe, the somber role as one of literature’s great tortured souls spotlighting his limitations as an actor. With his little goatee and his black cape, Cusack vaguely looks the part, but he’s a lightweight — voice too whiny, mannerisms too exaggerated, cadence too reedy to bring alive the movie’s frequent passages of Poe’s lyrical writing. Cusack’s Poe is enlisted by a Baltimore police detective (Luke Evans) to help solve a string of killings inspired by the author’s macabre stories. The movie reinforces how fiendishly clever Poe’s ideas were, but the filmmakers make poor use of their source material, wringing a few moments of gore from them while adding no suspense or originality of their own. R for bloody violence and grisly images. 110 minutes. One and a half stars out of four. — David Germain, AP Movie Writer

Singing away the sorrow Thousands defy Norwegian mass killer with song OSLO, Norway (AP) — They gathered by the tens of thousands in the drenching rain to face down terrorism with song. Drawn by a Facebookorganized protest, Norwegians flocked to public squares across the country Thursday and rallied against far-right fanatic Anders Behring Breivik, now on trial for a bomband-shooting rampage that killed 77 people. They sang a Norwegian version of a Pete Seeger tune that the confessed mass killer claims has been used to brainwash the country’s youth into supporting immigration. Defiant singalongs of “Children of the Rainbow” were staged in Oslo and other major Norwegian cities, even as the ninth day of the trial went on with survivors of Breivik’s attacks giving tearful testimony. In downtown Oslo alone, about 40,000 people raised their voices as Norwegian artist Lillebjoern Nilsen played the song, a Norwegian version of Seeger’s “My Rainbow Race.” They sang the Norwegian lyrics: “A sky full of stars, blue sea as far as you can see “An earth where flowers grow, can you wish for more? “Together shall we live, every sister, brother “Young children of the rainbow, a fertile land.” Seeger’s lyrics in the original version have a similar message of living together in harmony. In testimony last week, Breivik mentioned the

The crowd later marched to the Oslo courthouse, where they laid a carpet of red and white roses on the steps and the fence. Reached at home in Beacon, N.Y., the 92-yearold Seeger told The Associated Press he had heard about the mass gathering in a phone call from Nilsen. “I said, ‘Oh that’s wonderful,’” Seeger said. “It’s a tremendous honor, really. One of the greatest honors a songwriter could have is to have a song of theirs sung in another country.” The folk singer and his music have been central in many social justice issues from civil rights to the environment. He sang out against the Vietnam War and more recently joined the Occupy Wall Street protest in Manhattan. Breivik has admitted to

in drizzling rain in Youngstorget square, Oslo, Norway the singing of “Barn av Regnbuen” (Children of the setting off a bomb July 22 outside the government headquarters that killed eight people, and then going on a shooting rampage at the Labor Party’s annual youth camp on Utoya island, killing 69 others, mostly teenagers. Shocked by Breivik’s lack of remorse, Norwegians by and large have decided the best way to confront him is by demonstrating their commitment to everything he loathes. Instead of raging against the gunman, they have manifested their support for tolerance and democracy. “We have a quiet majority that sometimes gets a bit too quiet,” said Shoaib Sultan of The Norwegian Centre against Racism. However, he said it was important to “demonstrate tolerance.” Eskil Pedersen, the head of the Labor Party’s youth wing, told the umbrella-holding crowd in Oslo that Thursday’s song

held special significance for his group. “We aren’t here because of him, but because of each other,” Pedersen said. Breivik’s defense lawyer Geir Lippestad said his client was aware of the singalong protests. “He has registered that there is something going on outside this place, but he has obviously not seen it with his own eyes,” Lippestad told public broadcaster NRK at the courthouse. In court, people who survived Breivik’s car bomb testified emotionally as he listened without expression. Anne Helene Lund, 24, who was just 7 meters (23 feet) from the explosion, lay in a coma for a month. When she woke up, she had lost her memory, unable to remember even the names of her parents. “I studied political science for three years. Now I have to relearn social studies at the junior high school level,” she testified.

Some people just have too much time on their hands Dear Annie: My husband, "Ken," has been self-employed for 25 years. He owns two large trailers and has always parked them in our driveway. However, in the past two months, we've had visits from the police department nearly every night. A neighbor we have never met keeps reporting us. He complains that when my husband gets home from work, he sometimes parks his truck with one tire resting in the dirt. A city ordinance requires us to have the section where we park either rocked or paved. We can't afford it right now. Times have been really tough. Ken tries very hard to park our trailers and truck in our driveway without touching any grass, but it's difficult to do. The police have been sympathetic, saying the neighbor is targeting us. They know him as the local troublemaker. He has a view of our driveway from his backyard and watches it all the time. We are honest, hardworking people and wouldn't harm a soul, but this situation has become personal. Yesterday, we asked the police officer to file a neighbor nuisance report. We don't know what else to do. I can't sleep, and I'm scared for my family. I have no idea what else this man is capable of. I'm ready to have a restraining order placed against him, but as far as I know, he doesn't approach our house. He only watches it, which creeps me out even more. Can we do anything? — Illinois Neighbor Dear Illinois: Your unkind, nosy neighbor has way too much time on his hands. He can watch your house from a distance all day long if he wishes, and as long as you keep violating a city ordinance, he will keep reporting you. First, see whether there is a neighborhood association that could help the two of you resolve this. Sometimes, such neighbors simply crave attention and need to feel important. Then start saving your pennies to enlarge the driveway area. Dear Annie: My friend "Lonnie" smokes both tobacco and marijuana in the presence of her young child. Anytime I mention the subject and tell her I don't support her smoking, she completely ignores me. I feel terrible being associated with a person who can't see the effect tobacco and drug use will have on her child. I often wonder what will happen when her daughter realizes that her entire schedule is based around Mommy's smoke break. I am ready to move on from this tainted friendship, but hate the thought of never spending quality time with Lonnie's little girl. She is always put on the “back burner.” Any suggestions? — Burned-Out Friend Dear Friend: Lonnie is addicted. Quitting is too difficult for her, and she doesn't want to be lectured about it. She is unlikely to admit that she values her smoking above her child's health. Is there a father in the picture? Would he do anything about this? Would you be willing to report Lonnie for possession? Regardless, please stick around in order to keep an eye on the child. Offer to baby-sit. Take her to your home or to the park as often as you can. We hope Lonnie will soon realize the damage she is doing and shape up. Dear Annie: "Saskatoon" asked whether it was rude for someone to leave the TV on while others were visiting. There could be another reason besides rudeness. I am the caregiver for someone who keeps the TV on all day. Unfortunately, people don't realize she has dementia and is mostly deaf. Since she cannot understand conversations going on around her and becomes more confused if asked to participate in them, the TV provides a safe and comfortable haven. Please help your readers understand that there may be other reasons why someone keeps the TV on, and the caregivers are the ones who would appreciate a visit with conversation. — New Hampshire Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HINTS FROM HELOISE

Here’s a new turn for those old unwanted keys Dear Heloise: Greetings from Louisbourg, Nova Scotia! After recently purchasing new lock sets for our home, I realized how many keys get tossed in the garbage when locks of different types are changed. Haven’t we all got a container with old keys that no one can use or knows what they are for? Can old keys be recycled in any way? Thanks, and keep up the good work. — Judy, via email Greetings to you, Judy! How nice to hear from way up North, from my home state, Texas! You are so right! There are several ways to recycle them around the house:

Hints from Heloise Columnist • Sew them into the bottom of drapes to help the drapes hang straight. • Tie onto fishing line and make into a wind chime. • Attach to zipper pulls on heavy coats or bags. • Give kids a key chain with keys to play with. • Sell or donate to artists.

• Use to decorate picture frames or gifts. You also can check with a mixed-metal recycling company to see if it recycles the metal. Hope this helps. Calling all locksmiths! Any hints to help reuse or recycle keys? — Heloise LETTER OF LAUGHTER Dear Heloise: I read with interest your column about money hidden by older family members (finding money hidden in strange places after they have passed. — Heloise). My mother also had that habit. Her place of preference was in back of pictures of family that were hanging on the wall. All family members knew about this.

After she died and the money was removed, the grandchildren had much enjoyment, some boasting: “Grandma liked me better than she liked you. She put $20 behind my picture. Yours had only $10!” — Dorris from Iowa CUTTING-BOARD REDO Dear Heloise: I have a wooden pull-out cutting board in my kitchen cupboards. It looked terrible after years of use. I looked high and low for a replacement. Then it occurred to me to refurbish it with my husband’s electric palm sander. Starting with coarser and ending with a finer paper, it looks nearly as good as new. — Jan from Idaho

HOROSCOPE Friday, April 27, 2012 Your imprint is likely to be more widely felt in the year ahead than it ever was in the past, mostly because you’ll have your fingers in many new pies. Success is now possible in areas where you previously met with disappointment. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Don’t wait for others to put a fun activity together, be the one who initiates good times. If you do, this can be an extremely enjoyable day. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Those who love you are likely to do all they can to help satisfy both your material and emotional interests as unobtrusively as possible. Show your appreciation. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — It’s one of those rare days where some of your more expansive hopes have betterthan-average chances of being gratified. Be optimistic about the outcome of events. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Don’t sit around waiting for something good to happen. If you get on things immediately and strike while the iron is hot, you can realize some gangbusters opportunities. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Forget about all the petty things going on in your life and focus your energies and efforts on endeavors that are near and dear to you. When you do, life can be pretty darn great. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Collective endeavors look extremely promising at this point in time. Check to see if there is room for you in a coalition that is engaged in something interesting. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — One of your better assets is your knack for encouraging people to get together to work on a common goal. Instinctively you will know who should be part of this effort. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — If you’ve been considering making a major change that you believe would better your working conditions, now’s the day to implement it. Delay will only dull your fervor. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Trust your instincts, common sense and good judgment. Snap decisions could actually turn out to be better than those over which you ponder for some time. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Timing can be extremely important in situations where you are trying to put together some kind of deal. Don’t present your case without having all your ducks in a row, and don’t delay the arrangement of said quackers, either. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You might not have any fresh ideas yourself, but there will be no one better than you for improving upon the innovations of others. You’ll know how to polish up what they envision. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — This could be one of your better days, with everything going well. The happiest surprise, however, will be running into excellent bargains for everything you need. COPYRIGHT 2012 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Friday, April 27, the 118th day of 2012. There are 248 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 27, 2011, powerful tornadoes raked the South and Midwest. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, more than 120 twisters resulted in 316 deaths across parts of Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia. On this date: • In 1521, Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan was killed by

natives in the Philippines. • In 1777, the only land battle in Connecticut during the Revolutionary War, the Battle of Ridgefield, took place, resulting in a limited British victory. • In 1822, the 18th president of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant, was born in Point Pleasant, Ohio. • In 1972, the Apollo 16 mission to the moon ended safely. • Five years ago: President George W. Bush and visiting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (shin-zoh ah-bay) threatened stronger punitive actions against

North Korea if it reneged on a promise to padlock its sole nuclear reactor. A judge in Madrid indicted three U.S. soldiers in the 2003 death of Jose Couso, a Spanish journalist who was killed when their tank opened fire at a hotel in Baghdad. (The U.S., which found the use of force was justified, has refused to hand over the soldiers.) • Today’s Birthdays: Actor Jack Klugman is 90. Actress Anouk Aimee is 80. Announcer Casey Kasem is 80. Rock musician Ace Frehley is 61. Pop singer Sheena Easton is 53.

on illegal arms caches. All the recovered weapons were suspected of being used in crimes in Mexico. At an April 2 North American summit in Washington, Mexican President Felipe Calderon said the U.S. government has not done enough to stop the flow of assault weapons and other guns from the U.S. to Mexico. Calderon credited President Barack Obama with making an effort to reduce the gun traffic, but said Obama faces “internal problems … from a political point of view.” There is Republican opposition in Congress and broad opposition from Republicans and gun-rights advocates elsewhere to a new assault weapons ban or other curbs on gun sales. The Obama administration says it is working to tighten inspections of border checkpoints in the absence of an assault rifle ban that expired before Obama took office.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The government said Thursday that 68,000 guns recovered by Mexican authorities in the past five years have been traced back to the United States. The flood of tens of thousands of weapons underscores complaints from Mexico that the U.S. is responsible for arming the drug cartels plaguing its southern neighbor. Six years of violence between warring cartels have killed more than 47,000 people in Mexico. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives released its latest data covering 2007 through 2011. According to ATF, many of the guns seized in Mexico and submitted to ATF for tracing were recovered at the scenes of cartel shootings while others were seized in raids

To some Republicans and conservatives, the comments justified their long-standing allegation that the EPA under President Barack Obama has stepped up enforcement to a point where it is harming the economy and the energy industry. The EPA also has become a popular target on the campaign trail, and Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney has in the past called for EPA chief Lisa P. Jackson to be fired. Armendariz’s apology was issued Wednesday by the EPA’s headquarters in Washington. “I apologize to those I have offended and regret my poor choice of words. It was an offensive and inaccurate way to portray our efforts to address potential violations of our nation’s environmental laws,” he said. “I am always and have been committed to fair and vigorous enforcement of those laws.” Cynthia Giles, the assistant administrator for enforcement and compliance assurance, also issued a statement. “Strong, fair and effective enforcement of the environmental laws passed by Congress is critical to protecting public health and ensuring that all companies, regardless of industry, are playing by the same rules,” she wrote.

NATIONAL BRIEF

Mexico seized 68,000 guns from U.S. since 2006

HOUSTON (AP) — A top administrator for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has apologized for using the word “crucify” two years ago when describing the agency’s enforcement policies, and for saying it makes examples of bad players in the oil and gas industry. EPA Region 6 administrator Al Armendariz, who oversees Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and New Mexico, issued a written apology Wednesday after video surfaced of him at a meeting in May 2010 in the tiny town of Dish. The video shows Armendariz answering a question about the agency’s enforcement policies. In the Middle Ages, he tells the crowd, the Romans would enter a troublesome village, “take the first five guys they saw and crucify them.” Then the town would be “really easy to manage for the next few years,” he said. The EPA also makes “examples of people who are not complying with the law, you make examples out of them, use it as a deterrent method,” Armendariz continued. “Companies that are smart see that and they don’t want to play that, and they decide at that point that it’s time to clean up.”

Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable. If you have questions regarding scams like these or others, please contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office at (800)282-0515.

Butler knocks off Troy Trojans now need help in North Staff Reports

STAFF PHOTOS/ANTHONY WEBER

Troy’s Dylan Cascaden slides back into first base Thursday against Springboro at Market Street Field. Cascaden scored three runs in the Trojans’ 7-6 victory.

Full steam ahead Troy gets momentum, rallies past Springboro 7-6 BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor jbrown@tdnpublishing.com Payback from a tournament loss last season. A signature win against one of the area’s best teams — and in exciting fashion. Of all the things Troy earned Thursday, one was more important than all. Momentum.

TROY The Trojans (14-7) kicked off the most important five-game stretch of their season with a come-from-behind victory over the Springboro Panthers, falling behind as much as 6-2 only to rally for a 7-6 victory Thursday at Market Street Field on Senior Night. “This was a great momentum game,” said Troy senior Nathan Helke, who pitched the seventh inning to pick up a save. “They’re (Springboro) probably going to be one of the top seeds in the tournament. We got a lot of momentum out of this game, and with Piqua coming on Monday and Tuesday, any momentum we can get is great.”

VANDALIA — Thursday’s matchup between Troy and Butler was destined to decide the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division champion. But a title for the Trojans doesn’t appear to be in the cards now. Troy fell to 12-4 on the season and 2-1 in the GWOC North, while Butler improved to 12-1 and 4-0 in the division. Troy now needs to win out in GWOC North play and for Trotwood to knock off Butler to tie for the title. At first singles, Troy’s Luke Oaks put up a fight against David Scher before falling 2-6, 63, 6-2.

MIAMI COUNTY “Butler has another strong team with most of their players back from last year,” Troy coach Mark Goldner said. “Luke played very well for a set and a half before dropping the third set 62.” At second singles, Justin Kopronica defeated Reid Wynkoop 6-2, 6-2. At third singles, Kyle Teague defeated Sean Cothran 6-2, 6-1. At first doubles, Ryan Helke and Lauren Jackson defeated Chris Schmitt and Ben Thompson 6-1, 6-3. At second doubles, Gary Hess and Alex Anderson defeated Matt Alexander and Ian Stutz 6-2, 6-2. The Trojans face another tough text today, taking on Chaminade Julienne. Tippecanoe 5, Greenon 0 TIPP CITY — With slightly more than a week to go in the regular season, Tippecanoe remains perfect. On Thursday, the Red Devils blanked Greenon 5-0 — leading up to a big test today. At first singles, Sam Bollinger defeated Fabian Probst 6-0, 6-0.

HUBER HEIGHTS

A pair of Troy Trojans qualified for tomorrow’s finals at the twoday Wayne Invitational Thursday, while only a few events were finalized. The girls sit in ninth place with 11 points, while the boys are 25th with one. Ashley Rector placed third in the long jump for the Trojan girls, leaping 17-8.5, while the 4x100

shuttle hurdle relay team of Catelyn Schmiedebusch, Tori Schlarman, Tarisai Chinoda and Jaden Huggins finished fourth in 1:08.24. Todda Norris qualified for today’s finals in the 100. Norris and Chaminade Julienne’s DeVanae Mitchell both ran a time of 12.84 seconds — the best in the

qualifying round. For Troy’s boys, Seth Overla was the only scorer, finishing eighth in the discus (132-9). Nick James tied with Springboro’s Jason Bailey for the third-best qualifying time in the 100, finishing in 11.3 seconds. And in the 3,200 rising stars event, sophomore Branden Nosker was second (9:59.78) and junior Jon Osman was seventh (10:14.21). Leah Dunivan finished second

in a pair of events for Miami East’s girls, putting the Vikings in sixth place with 16 points. She was runner-up in the shot put (37-4.5) and the high jump, tied with the winner, Mason freshman Jordan Horning, at 5-2 but taking second on attempts. Wayne (31.25) leads the boys side, while Mason (37) leads the girls. The meet resumes today at 4:30 p.m.

Backfield in NFL’s Pro Bowl in jeopardy motion for Cleveland BEREA (AP) — The Cleveland Browns weren’t going to let anyone block them from Trent Richardson. Desperate for a playmaker to ignite a sputtering offense, the Browns traded three later picks to the Minnesota Vikings and moved up one spot to select Richardson, Alabama’s explosive running back, with the No. 3 overall pick in the NFL draft on Thursday night. The dynamic Richardson should make an immediate impact on a Cleveland offense that scored just 218 points last season and had just four rushing touchdowns. The 5-foot-9, 228-pound Richardson scored 21 for the national champion Crimson Tide. “He’s passionate. He’s productive. He’s durable and he’s the kind of runner we feel is going to help us get our offense together to score the points that we need to win the games that we’re going to win,” said Browns coach Pat Shurmur, who went 4-12

in a tumultuous first season. “He’s a terrific runner.” With their second selection in the first round, the Browns took Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden, a pick that could signal the end of Colt McCoy’s days as a starter. The 28-year-old Weeden will likely compete for the starting job with McCoy, who has had two inconsistent seasons for the Browns. Shurmur said the Browns were convinced a team would leapfrog them to select Richardson. “We knew that as we went through the process that he was our guy,” Shurmur said. “We did what we had to do to secure it. We knew teams behind us wanted him as well. We’re thrilled.” Richardson was stunned to be taken by the Browns. “I didn’t expect to go this high,” he said after donning a Browns No. 1 jersey and baseball cap on the stage of New York’s Radio City Music Hall.

Bengals look to ‘corner’ market CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals took Dre Kirkpatrick from Alabama with the 17th overall pick in the draft on Thursday night, adding to their already bursting collection of first-round cornerbacks. It marked the third time in the last seven years that Cincinnati chose a cornerback with its top pick. The Bengals also took Johnathan Joseph in 2007 and Leon Hall in 2007, giving themselves one of the league’s best tandems. Joseph left for Houston as a free agent after the 2010 season, and Hall tore an Achilles tendon last year. Suddenly, it was time to get another one. And now, they have a total of six cornerbacks who were first-round picks by various teams. This one came courtesy of the Oakland

Raiders, who gave up the 17th overall pick as part of the deal for quarterback Carson Palmer. So far, the deal has worked out much better for the Bengals Oakland failed to make the playoffs, and Cincinnati was able to replenish its pass coverage. The Bengals also had their own pick at No. 21. They traded it to New England and moved down to the 27th spot, where they got guard Kevin Zeitler from Wisconsin. Cincinnati also got the Patriots’ third-round pick. They needed an offensive lineman after Nate Livings, their starting left guard each of the last two seasons, went to Dallas as a free agent. Right guard Bobbie Williams broke his right ankle in December and is an unrestricted free agent.

NEW YORK (AP) — Have NFL fans seen the last of the Pro Bowl? The game could be suspended next year, two people familiar with discussions said Thursday. Commissioner Roger Goodell, among others, expressed concerns about the quality of play after January’s game, and the league has been holding talks with the players’ union about the future of

the all-star game. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks were not being publicized. Responding to an ESPN report that Goodell is “strongly considering” suspending the game in 2013, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said: “No determination has been made yet.” Goodell said before the Super Bowl in February he was unhappy with what he

saw in the AFC’s 59-41 win in the Pro Bowl at Honolulu a game that often resembled touch football. Many players chosen for the game bow out, and if the Pro Bowl is held before the Super Bowl, as it was during the past three years, players from the conference champions don’t participate. San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York questioned his followers on Twitter about their feeling toward

the Pro Bowl, then concluded later that there “Doesn’t seem to be much love” in the responses. The game still draws solid TV ratings, but isn’t considered a money maker. Although viewership dropped 8.1 percent in January, the Pro Bowl still was the highest-rated sports program of the weekend. The big factor is cost, particularly when played in Hawaii.

Oh, lucky day Colts tke Stanford QB Luck as No. 1 pick NEW YORK (AP) Six weeks after saying goodbye to Peyton Manning, the Indianapolis Colts handed Andrew Luck a blue and white jersey and the daunting task of leading a rebuilding team as its quarterback for the next decade. Luck couldn’t have chosen a tougher act to follow all Manning did was win an unprecedented four MVP awards and a Super Bowl for Indy. But many believe he is the most NFL-ready passer to enter the league since Manning went No. 1 overall in 1998. “You don’t really replace a guy like that,” Luck said. “You can’t. You just try to do the best you can. Obviously, he was my hero growing up.” His selection as the top pick was hardly a surprise. The Colts informed the Stanford quarterback last week that Commissioner Roger Goodell would announce his name first Thursday night. Right behind him was Baylor QB Robert Griffin III, the Heisman Trophy winner, who was taken second overall by the Washington Redskins. No suspense attached to that pick, either. After being loudly booed at the outset, Goodell told a raucous crowd at Radio City Music Hall that “the season begins tonight, so let’s kick if off.” Then he did, congratulating Luck while the crowd chanted “RG3, RG3.” Luck left the stage and slapped hands with some fans in Colts shirts and headed to the interview room. To get Griffin,

ME 5, Bradford 2 BRADFORD — Paige Kiesewetter took advantage of an early 2-0 lead on the mound — and then helped seal the game from the plate in the seventh — as Miami East held off

Bradford 5-2 in a critical matchup near the top of the Cross County Conference. With the win, the Vikings remain one loss back of Newton in the standings at 7-1 in the conference, 14-5 overall. Bradford, meanwhile, drops to 14-6 and 6-3 in the CCC. Kiesewetter struck out eight and gave up six hits in earning the win. And after forcing Bradford to leave the bases loaded in the sixth and with the Vikings holding onto a 3-1 lead in the top of the seventh, she led off the inning with a home run. “We picked up two in the first, and that helped us get our confidence going,” Miami East coach Brian Kadel said. “We didn’t play our best defensive game, but we were able to work out of some situations. And in the seventh, Paige led off with a homer and Jeni (Accurso) followed with a double, and we were able to score her, too.” Accurso finished with a pair of doubles and Madison Linn added a double. Haley Patty — who took the loss for the Railroaders — was 2 for 4, Chelsey Broughman was 2 for 3

and Katie Miller doubled. Both teams are back in action in conference play today. Miami East hosts Franklin Monroe, while Bradford travels to National Trail.

Covington 15, FM 0 PITSBURG — Losing doesn’t sit well with Covington coach Dean Denlinger and coming off a frustrating loss to rival Bradford, he was looking for his team to play Buccaneer softball against Franklin Monroe. And Denlinger got his wish as Covington scored 15 runs on 15 hits, played error-free ball and received solid pitching from Morgan Arbogast and Heidi Snipes. Morgan Arbogast had the lone extra base hit with a double, while Casey Yingst and Brittanie Flora both connected for two base hits. Arbogast and Snipes combined in the two-hitter and struck out eight batters in the process. Covington (17-3, 7-2 Cross County Conference) hosts Mississinawa Valley today.

Cavs blasted in finale CHICAGO (AP) — John Lucas III scored a careerhigh 25 points, Joakim Noah had 13 points and 13 rebounds, and the Chicago Bulls clinched the top overall seed in the NBA playoffs with a 107-75 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night. With the No. 1 seed in the East already in hand and the playoffs beginning on Saturday, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau took no chances in the regular-season finale. He rested Derrick Rose, Luol Deng and Kyle Korver. Chicago will host Philadelphia on Saturday. Tristan Thompson scored 13 points for the Cavaliers, who lost four straight games to end the season, their second straight last-place finish in the Central Division. Kyrie Irving, who had a late-season sprained right shoulder and is recovering from the flu, did not play. The Bulls outrebounded Cleveland 60-38. Despite being shorthanded, the Bulls controlled most of the game. They led 58-45 at halftime behind nine points and eight rebounds from Noah, and Lucas’ nine points. Carlos Boozer scored the first six points of the third quarter and Chicago extended the lead to 66-47. The Bulls could have also clinched home-court advantage throughout the postseason with a Spurs’ loss to the Warriors, but didn’t need the help. Lucas’ 3 increased the lead with 3:53 to go and Rasual Butler had tip to make it 99-69.

Rangers win in Game 7 NEW YORK (AP) — Rangers defensemen Marc Staal and Dan Girardi scored 4:18 apart in the second period, Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves and top-seeded New York eliminated the pesky eighth-seeded Ottawa Senators from the playoffs with a 2-1 victory in Game 7 on Thursday night. Staal broke the scoreless deadlock, and Girardi gave the Rangers a 2-0 lead with his first career NHL playoff goal. Lundqvist allowed Daniel Alfredsson’s power-play goal in the second but stood tall the rest of the way to send the Rangers into an Eastern Conference second-round matchup with the Washington Capitals. The Rangers hadn’t hosted a Game 7 since their Stanley Cup victory over Vancouver in 1994, but they stayed perfect at home in deciding games winning their fourth. New York is 4-5 overall in Game 7, and the Senators dropped to 0-5. Lundqvist withstood tons of pressure from the Senators, who spent most of the closing 5 minutes in the Rangers’ end. The win wasn’t secure until Sergei Gonchar tripped Carl Hagelin as he skated toward the empty net with 36.2 seconds remaining. Craig Anderson was nearly as good in the Ottawa net, making 27 saves. New York rallied from a 3-2 series deficit for just the second time, building off the momentum of its 32 victory in Ottawa on Monday night in Game 6.

■ College Football ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 “This was a big win on Senior Night, especially against Springboro,” senior Jordan Guillozet said. “This was definitely a quality win over a good team.” Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division-leading Springboro (16-4) runruled Troy 11-1 in the first round of last year’s tournament — mere weeks after the Trojans beat the Panthers by the same 7-6 score in the regular season. Now the Trojans travel to Miamisburg today before facing Fairfield at Fifth Third Field Sunday night … the night before a two-game series with rival Piqua that will decide the GWOC North championship. Troy needs to sweep both of those games to win its first league title since 1991, while the Indians need only a split. “These are the kind of games we need to be in right now,” Troy coach Ty Welker said. “Springboro is a quality baseball team. That is the kind of team we need to beat from here on out.” And even after falling behind 6-2 after the top of the fourth, the Trojans showed the had what it takes. And it all began in the bottom of the fourth. After Springboro starter Sean Pfeifer struck out the first two Trojan batters, Dylan Cascaden got his third straight hit of the day, and Nick Antonides doubled to the opposite field to put runners on second and third. Then Helke — the GWOC North leader in RBIs who was 0 for 2 at that point — hit a dribbler to third that he beat out for an infield RBI single. “I can count on one hand how many times I’ve done that,” he said with a laugh. “But hey, I’ll take it.” A wild pitch and an errant throw to third by the catcher brought in another run, then

Troy’s Jordan Price rounds second base Thursday against Springboro.

Troy’s Jordan Guillozet strikes out swinging Thursday against Springboro. He reached base safely on the play. Guillozet struck out swinging but reached base after the ball got by the catcher. That allowed Ian Nadolny to rake an RBI single that made the score 6-5. Troy’s first five runs in the game all came with two outs. “Today was kind of the opposite of the way we’ve been all year,” Welker said. “(Starting pitcher) Devon (Alexander) didn’t have his best stuff, Springboro came out swinging and we made some defensive mistakes. But we battled with two outs, put up a couple runs here and there and stayed in the game.” Alexander gave up eight hits and four runs in three innings, seven of those hits and all of the runs coming in the first two innings. Sophomore Ben Langdon then came on for the next three innings, giving up four hits and two runs — but also getting out of two jams. He

induced an inning-ending six-four-three double play from Cascaden to Thomas Harvey to Helke to get out of the fourth. And then after a play from left fielder Jordan Price to Cascaden at short to Nadolny at home to nail a runner trying to score early in the sixth, he left runners stranded on first and third. Which set up the Trojans for some late-game heroics in the bottom of the inning. Cascaden — who finished 3 for 3 with two doubles and three runs scored in the leadoff spot — led off with a walk and was bunted to second by Antonides. Helke then walked, and Guillozet — who finished 3 for 3 with a double and two RBIs — poked a run-scoring single through the hole between first and second to tie the game. “We just never quit. We kept on going and hitting

the whole game,” Guillozet said. “Everybody hit. It was a good team win.” Nadolny then drove the first pitch he saw to right field for a sacrifice fly, bringing in pinch runner Jay Swigard and giving Troy its first lead of the game. Helke made sure it was the only one the Trojans would need. He gave up a leadoff single to start the seventh, but a fielder’s choice and a strikeout put Springboro down to its last out. He then walked the next hitter to put the tying run in scoring position and went 3-1 on the next hitter, but he got a fly ball to Devin Blakely in center to put an end to the game. “I was just trying not to make a mistake, and they were trying to capitalize on one,” Helke said. “Thank God our defense was there. Dylan made a great play at short, and Devin made a nice catch to end it.” “Ben, a sophomore, battled out of some tight spots and got some nice experience,” Welker said of Langdon, who got the win. “And we just kept chipping away. Nathan would tell you he didn’t have his best stuff, but he did his job and we got a great team win.” And some all-important momentum.

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) — College football is on the verge of finally having a playoff, its own version of the final four. For the first time, all the power brokers who run the highest level of the sport are comfortable with the idea of deciding a championship the way it’s done from pee-wees to pros. And the way fans have been hoping they would for years. “Yes, we’ve agreed to use the P word,” Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said Thursday. They want to limit it to four teams. That’s for sure. Now they have to figure out how to pick the teams, where and when to play the games and how the bowls do or do not fit in. The new postseason format would go into effect for the 2014 season. As for the 14-year-old Championship Bowl Series, it’s on life support. Any chance that it survives past the next two seasons? “I hope not,” said Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive, who pitched a four-team playoff four years ago but was shot down at this same hotel beachside hotel. “This is a seismic change for college football,” BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock said after the 11 conference commissioners and Notre Dame’s athletic director wrapped up three days of meetings in south Florida. That Hancock actually used the word playoff when describing what was being considered alone signaled a shift in thinking for the BCS. In a memo leading up to these meetings, the term “four-team event” was used to describe creating two national semifinals and a championship

game. Hancock said the commissioners will present a “small number” of options for a four-team playoff to their leagues over the next month or so at conference meetings. He estimated that between two and seven configurations are being considered. It’ll be up to each conference to determine which plan it likes best. The commissioners will get back together in June and try to come up with a final version, and eventually the university presidents will have to sign off on it. Hancock has said they’d like a new format ready for approval by July 4. And he warned that if no agreement is reached, the fallback could be sticking with an overhauled version of the old system, which aims for a No. 1 vs. No. 2 championship game. But that’s a longshot. “It’s great to get to a point where there seems to be general consensus that a four-team, three-game playoff is the best route to go,” Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford said. “The next challenge obviously is figuring out a format that brings consensus where we can truly make that work. The more this narrows, the more challenging it gets.” The first step is figuring out the where and when. The when should be easy. The commissioners all agree the college football season needs to wrap up as close to Jan. 1 as possible. That would mean semifinals soon after Christmas and the title game within a few days of the calendar flipping. “One of the goals is to make the postseason a celebration of college football,” Slive said.

Indians off at Bullpen woes cost Reds home in loss CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians have been dominant on the road this season. Playing at home, however, has proven to be a major problem. Kansas City added to the Indians’ home woes on Thursday, scoring three runs in the fifth inning en route to a 4-2 victory. The loss was Cleveland’s sixth in eight games at Progressive Field in 2012, which has largely negated its 7-2 record on the road. “It’s just a fluke. It has nothing to do with coming back home,” Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin said. “I think it’s just a fluke and we’ll play better here, for sure.” Indians manager Manny Acta doesn’t think the early problems at home are the beginning of a trend. “We love playing here,” said Acta, whose team was 44-37 at home in 2011. “We scored a lot

of runs here last year. It’s four bases and a mound everywhere you go. It’s just a coincidence the way we’re playing at home right now.” Third baseman Jack Hannahan echoed his manager’s thoughts. “Home is where you’ve got to take care of your business,” he said. “It’s just baseball. It’s our second homestand. It’s just a coincidence. We’re going to start winning at home, no doubt about that.” The numbers, however, tell a different story. The Indians have been outscored 46-28 at home while outscoring opponents 54-41 on the road. Tomlin (1-2) allowed four runs and eight hits in 4 2-3 innings. The right-hander gave up Jeff Francoeur’s go-ahead RBI single with two outs in the fifth, then was knocked out of the game when Mike Moustakas followed with a run-scoring hit.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Sean Marshall often goes to his curveball as an out pitch. It didn’t work that way against Angel Pagan. Pagan hit a hanging curve for a three-run homer in the ninth inning, lifting the San Francisco Giants to a 6-5 win over the Reds on Thursday. “The curveball’s been a good pitch for me,” said Marshall (0-2), who had his first blown save after converting four opportunities. “I’ve gotten some outs with it. The ball hung in the middle of the plate. He didn’t get a good swing on it. What hurts is the guys played so well.” Marshall, acquired from the Cubs during the offseason and moved to closer in spring training after Ryan Madson was lost to seasonending elbow-ligament replacement surgery, struggled from the beginning of his second outing in less than 24 hours. He walked Joaquin Arias to lead off the ninth, and Ryan Theriot followed with a single. After pinch-hitter Brett Pill struck out, Pagan

The homer came on the first pitch after Pagan took what many in the crowd of 17,317 thought was strike three. “I didn’t hit my spot with it,” the left-hander said. “It was borderline. The next pitch was the one that mattered.” Manager Dusty Baker couldn’t tell from the dugout

if the pitch was a strike, but he knew Marshall wasn’t as sharp as he had been. “That leadoff walk gets you into trouble,” Baker said. “That curveball (to Pagan) kind of rolled. It’s tough. He only gave up one home run all of last year (in 78 appearances). You hope history repeats itself.” Javier Lopez (2-0) allowed two hits but no runs in the eighth to earn the win. Santiago Casilla struck out the side in the ninth for his second save in two

opportunities. Jay Bruce hit a two-run home run in the sixth inning and Scott Rolen led off the seventh with his second of the season, both in the last two games, giving starter Homer Bailey a shot at evening his record at 2-2. Bailey lasted 6 1-3 innings, allowing seven hits and three runs two earned with two walks and six strikeouts. “I had some quick innings,” said Bailey, who also had a run-scoring single in the second inning. “The fastball and (split-finger) were working, and I was able to get some groundballs and some quick outs. I really felt like I should have put up a zero in the last inning, so in a roundabout way, I think I should’ve done a lot better than I did.” Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval went 1 for 5, extending his season-opening hitting streak to 19 games, a franchise record. He went into the game tied with Johnny Rucker, who hit in the first 18 games of the 1945 season with the then-New York Giants.
