Cleveland police face questions One neighbor says a naked woman was seen crawling on her hands and knees in the backyard of the house a few years ago. Another heard pounding on the home’s doors and noticed plastic bags over the windows. Both times, police showed up but never went inside, neighbors say. Police also paid a visit to the house in 2004, but no one answered the door.

Tipp Council OKs spending On Monday night, City Council authorized the spending of more than a million dollars, approved the donation of a surplus fire truck and renamed the the police station. The Tipp City police station will now be known as the Davidson Building in honor of former Police Chief Tom Davidson, who passed away April 23 after a long battle with cancer and 22 years of service. “This is an appropriate tribute to a wonderful man,” Mayor Dee Gillis said. A bronze eagle, originally purchased by Ron Re to commemorate the chief’s retirement, will soon fly over the station in honor of Davidson and all the men and women of the Tipp City police. The statue will be placed atop a pole in front of the police station. Re suggested using one of the old decorative Main Street light poles. See Page 4.

Incumbents re-elected

Fletcher voters nix levy

Clark, Oda and Snee retain their council seats

Staff Report

BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer Incumbents Robin Oda, Al Clark and Lynne Snee were all re-elected as the three at-large representatives for Troy City Council at Tuesday’s special election, according to unofficial election results. Their twoyear term begins in 2014. Garnering the most votes was Oda, 52, with 27.86 percent, followed by Clark with 25.50 percent and Snee with 25.39 percent. Two-time candidate Colin Girolamo received 21.25 percent of the vote. Oda was spending time with her family at home when she learned of the election results. Speaking on behalf of council, Oda said listening to her constituents will continue to be a priority. “We’ll keep on working hard and trying to gather the information needed to make the best decisions possible,” said Oda, who will be serving her second term. “I’ve had very positive feedback from people. I would hope that people realize that I’m not afraid to ask questions. We’ll do the background work that needs to be done.” Clark, 63, said he watched the election results with his wife Eileen at the courthouse. “I’m very humbled and honored that the public continues to support me, and I will continue to work hard for the community. I promise to be responsive to the community and their concerns,” Clark said. The upcoming term marks his sixth time as a

A proposed tax levy for the village of Fletcher met voter disapproval Tuesday during the primary election. Unofficial results from the election showed 20 residents were in favor of the levy while 39 were against it, 34 percent to 66 percent, respectively. The proposed continuing levy for 1.5 mills would have gone into effect starting in calendar year 2014. The levy is for general construction, reconstruction, resurfacing and repair of streets, roads and bridges. The levy will collect 15 cents for every $100 of valuation for a continuing period of time.

Elected for her second term was Snee, 46. “I’ll be happy to serve another term,” Snee said. “I’ve been happy to serve in this term and I’m happy to serve another one.” In addition to the three at-large members, the ballot also included a candidate running unopposed in each of the six wards. The 5th and 6th wards were

added this year due to a population increase.

Unofficial vote tallies released by the Miami County Board of Elections on Tuesday night showed 177 voters approved of the measure while 90 disapproved.

Also voicing his opposition was Lester Conard, who urged other residents to contact city officials and write letters to the editor about pros and cons for the permissive tax.

BY JENNIFER RUNYON For the Troy Daily News After years of planning, campaigning, re-planning and campaigning again, Covington Exempted Village Schools will be getting a new school. By a vote of 51.49 percent (624588), voters passed a property tax levy of 3.89 mills and an income tax of .25 percent on Tuesday. These funds will cover the local share of the cost for a new prekindergarten to eighth grade building with renovations and updates to the high school creating one campus. The state will pay 58 percent of the cost, or $10.5 million. “We want to thank our community for supporting this extremely

This is a very exciting time for our community, our schools, and most importantly the children of Covington. We understand that this was a difficult decision for many voters and that personal finances continue to be challenging for some of our residents. Please be assured that Covington Schools will continue to be responsible stewards of our tax payers’ money and respect the financial condition of our community and citizens.”

Tipp voters show support for school Staff Report


The tides have turned for the financial state of Tipp City schools. After failing by a 26 percent margin last August, the district bypassed the November ballot, regrouped with a new committee, levy and slogan, and passed Tuesday by a 2.76 percent margin. “We’re not out of the woods yet (financially), but this was a big hurdle,” Superintendent Dr. John Kronour said.

The May ballot was for a 4.93 mill, 4-year levy. According to Miami County Board of Election’s unofficial results, the levy had 1,948 votes, or 51.38 percent for, and 1,843 votes, or 48.62 percent against. “(Twenty-six thousand) students will reap the benefits of our community’s vote

• CONTINUED FROM 1 a decision. Passing at Monday’s meeting was a resolution for moving forward on the 2013 paving program, budgeted at $670,000. The city will advertise for bids and enter into a contract for the paving of city streets. Also approved were employee pension contributions by the city of Troy for all members of the Ohio Police and Fire Pension Fund. These contributions will continue to be paid for through a payroll deduction. Council also approved the city’s plans

for an agreement with the Miami Valley Communications Council to seek competitive electric pricing for city-owned properties. Through the MVCC, the city is one of 25 municipalities looking to find a competitive retail electric service provider. In other council news: • Representatives from the Troy Senior Citizens Center thanked the city for their support of the center. • Mayor Michael Beamish proclaimed May 12, 2013, Fibromyalgia Awareness Day, in honor of Aimee L. Shannon, leader of Fibromyalgia Support Groups by Aimee. The mayor presented Shannon with a certificate at council.

The district will now contact the Ohio School Facilities Commission to let them know the local funds have been acquired. The OSFC will determine in July if the district receives funds; however, districts

nearly always receive the funding – particularly lapsed districts. Covington is a lapsed district because the state had money available to co-fund a project in 2010, but voters failed the needed levy. Larson said meetings will be held with the dis-

Ridge green space; and roughly 0.3 acres west of Amelia Avenue, north of West Ross Road, also known as Amelia Park. Nearby property owners will be notified of the bids concurrent with the sale. There will be minimum bids for each parcel, which have not been determined yet, according service and safety administrative assistant Sue Knight. Ken Siler, recreation director, reported the Troy Aquatic Park will have its inspection next week and the pool will begin having swim team practices soon after, weather permitting. Siler also reported season passes for Troy Aquatic Park are on par with sales from previous years. According to Siler’s report, 170 season passes have been sold to date compared to 149 at the same time last year. Siler thanked the city’s park staff with its assistance during Hobart Arena’s multiple events including the NonProfit Expo and other events this spring. “Looks like you had a busy month,” Phillips said in reference to Hobart Arena’s event calendar. Director of golf Ken Green said the course is now in “full swing” with league play beginning this week. Phillips asked how the golf course’s equipment was holding up. Green said the fairway and greens mowers had broke down and had to be serviced. Green said due to the equipment’s technology, the work was not able to be done in-house and was serviced by a vendor. Green reported the

trict’s architect, Building Planning Committee and staff members to begin discussing design ideas. He said due to the hectic schedule that comes with the end of the school year, these meetings most likely won’t begin until school is out for the summer.

Charges dismissed in threat case BY JOYELL NEVINS Civitas Media For the second time, a juvenile arrested for allegedly writing a threatening note in Tipp City schools had his charges dismissed. Miami County Juvenile Court Judge W. McGregor Dixon, Jr. ruled on May 2 that in the case of the 16year-old accused of writing two threatening notes in a high school bathroom stall, both charges are dismissed. The juvenile had an adjudicatory hearing April 17 for one felony count of inducing panic and one misdemeanor of aggravated menacing. Dixon wrote that concerning the notes themselves, which read “School/Columbine #2/2-1413/Good luck” and “Bombs away,” “there is no question that the statute (inducing

TROY panic) was violated by the writer; the question is who wrote the material.” He concluded that during the hearing, the state was not able to place the juvenile in the bathroom in question, or prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused was the one who wrote the notes (the juvenile maintained his innocence the whole time). Dixon did note the possible evidence of a conversation between the juvenile and a couple classmates, of which two of the three classmates testified. One of the classmates said there was a rumor that the defendant’s cousin had found the note, so he approached the juvenile and asked him if he knew anything about it, and then if he


knew who had written the note. The first thing the juvenile said was “yeah, I did.” After that, there were several conflicting opinions presented. One student said the juvenile said he was just joking; another said he told him “oh, I meant a different note.” The juvenile himself testified that he was referring to a poem he wrote on a different bathroom wall, as an “ode to marijuana.” He said that note was written last semester and had been washed off the next day. He also said he had never graffitied the walls or written a note before or since that incident. According to Dixon, the court found that the statements made by the juvenile to his classmates were “not credible as to an admission of writing.” “There is no other evidence that can substantiate a conviction,” he concluded.

maintenance staff has completed spring core aeration and routine maintenance. The board of park commissioners adjourned in to executive session before reconvening to hire Jeremy Drake as the city’s park superintendent. Drake served as interim park superintendent after Tim Mercer retired from the position in December 2012. Mercer served the city in the parks department for more than 35 years. Drake reported that the park’s department has relieved the streets department of several mowing responsibilities and has canceled contracted mowing services for other parcels. Drake said the park’s department will take back the mowing responsibilities at the city’s maintenance facility located on Experimental Farm Road, West Main Street near Goodwill and canceled a contract at Stonebridge and other small green spaces. “Our guys have been taking care of it,” Drake said. Drake said many of the mowing duties can now be easily complete thanks to realignment between the departments. “We now can help them out and take that over,” Drake said. Drake said after the sidewalk on West Main Street was completed, street crews could no longer maneuver their large mowers in the space near the Goodwill Store. Drake has been employed by the city park’s department since 1998. For more information about Drake’s appointment, see Thursday’s edition of the Troy Daily News.

W.M. school levy passes Staff Report After failing by a mere nine votes last November, the Milton-Union school levy passed with a much higher 348 vote margin last night. “It feels really good,” Treasurer Chuck Klein gushed. “We’re really happy right now.” The 5-year, 10.9-mill levy got 1,229 votes for, or 58.25 percent, and 881 votes against, for 41.75 percent, according to the Miami County Board of Elections unofficial results. The renewal levy will not raise taxes, but go toward general operations of the school. “We need this renewal to maintain our current level of service,” Superintendent Dr. Ginny Rammel said in an earlier story. Klein and the school administration extend a thank you to the community for the “continued education” of Milton-Union students.

Council authorizes spending more than $1 million

WIN TICKETS And A Chance To Meet Hinder!

Re suggested using one of the old decorative Main Street light poles. Council also approved the donation of a surplus fire pumper to a Kentucky community in need. Earlier this spring, the council amended the city’s code of ordinances to allow for the donation or sale of surplus property without public auction. The Oneida Volunteer Fire Department in Clay County, Ky., serves one of the poorest communities in the United States. They have two fire engines, one of which is 40-years-old and in bad shape. Michael Whitby, a Tipp City EMT and member of the Fellowship of Firefighters, Christian asked council to consider donating Tipp’s 35 year old fire pumper to Oneida in March. “We have a duty, whether

TIPP CITY that be a Christian duty or just a duty to another city, to show our support,” councilwoman Katelyn Berbach said. “We have a chance and an opportunity to help another city.” Councilmen Bryan Budding and Mike McDermott voted against donation. Budding suggested putting the truck up for auction, then raising money to make sure the city won the bid before gifting the truck to the Oneida fire department. Just giving the truck away, Budding said, would look like “theft by government.” “That belongs to the taxpayers of the city,” he said. A surplus 1995 dump truck will be sold to the village of Covington for $13,000. Council also authorized

The police department will soon be changing their scheduling, moving from eight-hour shifts to 12-hour shifts. Council discussed the change during the study session and gave their approval. Shifts will be split into four different crews with four patrolmen and a sergeant in each. Officers will work two 12 hour days, followed by two days off. Every other weekend will be a three day weekend. On the current schedule, sergeants could sometimes go months without a weekend off. “We’ll know pretty quick if it works or not,” acting Police Chief Sgt.

the purchase of a property at 301 N. Sixth St. for $600,000 for the future home of the electric utility facility. Electrical distribution is a $15 million a year operation. The city buys it off the market and distributes it to Tipp residents from the utility center. The city plans to keep the slab and steel frame of the structure currently on the property and rebuild around it. Later this year, the city will hire a firm to design the new facility. The current electric utility facility was built in 1917 to house generators and keep them cool. The 96-yearold building, now housing people and distribution equipment, is in bad shape and hard to heat. In other business, the Dow Street reconstruction project is moving forward.

MOTHER’S DAY MAY 12, 2013 Moms are celebrated around the world

There’s nothing new about honouring a mother’s unique role within the family and society as a whole. Ancient Greeks were known to celebrate Rhea, the mother of the Gods, and countless other religions have celebrated the fertility and nurturing qualities of women.

The perpetuation of this tradition in North America goes back to an American, Anna Jarvis, who lost her mother on the second Sunday of May, 1906. She convinced the authorities in her small Virginian town to mark Mother’s Day with a religious ceremony the following year. The idea was so popular that the entire state of Virginia began an official celebration for mothers in 1907. A few years later, in 1914, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson officially designated the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.

Since then, many countries including Canada, Brazil, Italy, Japan, and Belgium have followed

this lead and made the second Sunday in May a day of flowers and words of love for moms.

Strangely enough, Mother’s Day is celebrated on a wide range of dates around the world. It’s celebrated as early as February in Norway and as late as December in Panama and Indonesia. Between these two extremes, hardly a month goes by without some country honouring their mothers with a special day. One thing is certain though, no matter the place or the date, mothers deserve to be celebrated!

Mother’s Day is celebrated on different dates around the world.


Everybody is convinced that the best mom in the world is theirs. That’s probably why Mother’s Day is celebrated in dozens of countries around the world, although not always on the same date.

“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 Australian, Sydney, on choosing priorities in health: Our politicians are only forestalling the inevitable by refusing to face up to the historic challenges in health funding Shaping up on ABC1’s Q&A on Monday, federal Health Minister Tanya Plibersek and her opposition counterpart Peter Dutton were quickly bogged down in the minutiae of political diagnoses and second opinions. Sure, the blame game between state and federal governments over health has not ended, and sure, it is difficult to determine where sensible support for private health insurance ends and middle-class welfare begins. And undoubtedly efficiencies can be found among myriad bureaucratic agencies and processes. But politicians could go from the humidity crib to the palliative care bed trying to outbid each other while avoiding the main issue. This week’s Grattan Institute report about the budget pressures on Australian governments pointed out that 19 percent of public expenditure was spent on health. Access to expensive technology kicks in even before conception through IVF, and may improve our lives through laser surgery and subsidized medicines, before new procedures and drugs extend our twilight years and smooth our passing. Potential health expenses from cradle to grave are almost limitless. At some stage, politicians will have to grapple with the tough choices about what should be standard care and what is not. Glib lines about everyone having access to the world’s best care may sound like social justice but the promise, in reality, is not deliverable. The world’s best changes daily. Increasingly the critical questions will be about the universal standard governments are prepared to offer public patients, whether co-payments may play a role for some treatments, and how private insurance can constrain the burden on the public system. Until then, a bidding war will easily consume every dollar available. The Jerusalem Post on Mavi Marmara: Just minutes before U.S. President Barack Obama — wrapping up a three-day visit in Israel - boarded Air Force One for Jordan, he gave Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan a ring. After a few formalities, Obama handed the phone to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who proceeded to apologize for the “tragic results” of clashes between IDF soldiers and pro-Hamas Turkish activists on the Mavi Marmara in May 2010. “Israel expresses regret over the injuries and loss of life,” Netanyahu told Erdogan. Erdogan’s open hostility toward Israel is a common tactic used by Muslim leaders to boost popularity at home and throughout the region. Turkey under Islamist leadership sides with Hamas, a terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of the Jewish state, because of the AKP’s ideological affinity with Hamas and because the Gaza-based regime is part of a broader Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated resurgence taking place in Egypt and Tunisia and perhaps will spread to Libya, Jordan and post-Assad Syria. Turkey’s repeated attempts to obstruct efforts by Israel to improve ties with NATO are another aspect of this openly anti-Israel approach. Under the circumstances, Netanyahu’s apology had little chance of reversing the direction of social undercurrents driving Istanbul’s foreign policy. In the aftermath of the apology there has been no significant change in Turkey’s attitude toward Israel. Despite expectations to the contrary, Erdogan has avoided committing to a resumption of full diplomatic relations with Israel. And in a diplomatic slap in the face to both Israel and the US, the Turkish prime minister has made public his intention to visit Hamas-ruled Gaza in May. … National Security Council head Yaakov Amidror, who is presently in Turkey to discuss compensation for the flotilla victims, is also negotiating with the Turkish government to use an airbase in Ankara as a launching pad for an attack on Iran, according to the Sunday Times. Starting in 1996, Israel was permitted to use the Akinci airbase northwest of Ankara. But in the aftermath of the Mavi Marmara raid, Turkey terminated the agreement. Using the Turkish airbase could mean the difference between Israeli success and failure, an IDF source told the Sunday Times. From a Realpolitik perspective, Israeli and Turkish interests might dovetail visa-vis the Iranian threat. If Netanyahu’s apology facilitated this strategic achievement, it was worth it.

Migraine headaches aren’t just ‘in my head’ I’ll never forget the first time I got a migraine, because — not to sound all dramatic — my life was never the same again. It was the summer before sixth grade. My family was getting ready to meet up with my aunt, uncle and cousins at Max & Erma’s. This was a big deal, for two reasons. Not only did my family rarely go out to what seemed like a rather extravagant restaurant (at the time); we also rarely saw these relatives, as they live in Orlando. But rather than pulling on a sundress and getting ready to go like my sister, I was lying in bed with the most excruciating head pain I had ever experienced. I still remember it was storming outside, which certainly seemed appropriate given the pounding in my head and flashing lights that kept appearing every time I’d blink. That’s pathetic fallacy, for all you non-English majors. Anyway, going to dinner was the most miserable experience imaginable, resulting in my crying in the public bathroom. When I got back to the table, my family looked at me as if I were the

Natalie Knoth Troy Daily News Columnist biggest drama queen ever — and maybe they aren’t far off the mark — but I must say that until you’ve experienced migraine pain, you just don’t understand. It’s like a thick rubber band is worn on your head and something keeps pounding within your skull — normally just on one side, behind your eye or more intense on one side than the other — coupled with dizziness and nausea. Also, dire hopelessness. More than a decade later, I still get one at least once a month, along with a headache once a week, which actually comes as a welcome relief, given the alternative of a debilitating migraine. On Saturday, I wasn’t so lucky. For days before I had felt one coming on: I start feeling dizzy, one

side of my body gets a little tingly and my vision becomes slightly blurred. I had taken several preemptive Excedrin throughout the week, but I knew doing that repeatedly couldn’t possibly be good for my body. It was time to get the migraine over with. The weird thing about migraines is you never know exactly when they’ll strike. My mom used to always say, “It’s all in your head! What are you thinking about?” But it’s not that simple. While stress can certainly make them worse, I have yet to find any definite correlation. Ditto for the amount of sleep I get, what I eat, the weather conditions, how often I exercise, etc. Seeing several doctors over the years hasn’t proven successful either. I suppose it’s just something I have to live with. As my mom also always reminds me, I should just be glad I don’t have a chronic illness. That’s certainly true, and I should count my blessings every day, but that still doesn’t mean I can take my migraines in stride. Having friends tell me I’m “lame” for skipping a fun night out doesn’t help matters, either.

Still, I try to think of the positives. I was lucky my last migraine fell on a Saturday, so I could retreat to bed, pop some Excedrin, put a cold washcloth on my head and try to sleep it off. (When I’m working, I’m not that fortunate. As you can imagine, looking at a computer screen all day really does wonders. All I can do is prop my head up with my hand and try to keep hydrated.) Being prone to bad headaches also has encouraged me to get ahead on work, because I never know when another will hit. This made me remarkably efficient as a college student, especially. I also try (often unsuccessfully) to avoid alcohol and late nights out, which I suppose is a good thing. But the overarching silver lining is I’ve learned that I should never take any day — or my health — for granted. The morning after a migraine has passed is always so glorious. I wake up relieved, happy and ready to take on the world. If only I could embrace that attitude every single day.

Police facing questions in rescue of 3 Ohio women


CLEVELAND (AP) — One neighbor says a naked woman was seen crawling on her hands and knees in the backyard of the house a few years ago. Another heard pounding on the home’s doors and noticed plastic bags over the windows. Both times, police showed up but never went inside, neighbors say. Police also paid a visit to the house in 2004, but no one answered the door. Now, after three women who vanished a decade ago were found captive Monday at the run-down house, Cleveland police are facing questions for the second time in four years about their handling of missing-

person cases and are conducting an internal review to see if they overlooked anything. City Safety Director Martin Flask said Tuesday that investigators had no record of anyone calling about criminal activity at the house but were still checking police, fire and emergency databases. The three women were rescued after one of them kicked out the bottom portion of a locked screen door and used a neighbor’s telephone to call 911. “Help me. I’m Amanda Berry,” she breathlessly told a dispatcher in a call that exhilarated and astonished much of the city. “I’ve been kidnapped, and I’ve

been missing for 10 years and I’m, I’m here, I’m free now.” Berry, 27, Michelle Knight, 32, and Gina DeJesus, about 23, had apparently been held captive in the house since their teens or early 20s, police Chief Michael McGrath said. Three brothers, ages 50 to 54, were arrested. One of them, former school bus driver Ariel Castro, owned the home, situated in a poor neighborhood dotted with boarded-up houses just south of downtown. No charges were filed. A relative of the three brothers said their family was “totally shocked” after hearing about the missing women being found at the home. Juan Alicea said the arrests of his wife’s brothers had left relatives “as blindsided as anyone else” in their community.

Children who misbehaved should not be invited to the family event Dear Annie: My grandfather passed away last month, and the wake was catered by a close friend of the family who owns a restaurant. He closed off a section of his dining hall for our family. The meal included 15 children under the age of 10, and they were absolute monsters. My nephew threw his shoe across the room and then tripped a waitress. These kids crawled under the tables, poking us with forks and smearing food into the carpet. My cousin's 8-year-old daughter put open condiment packets in my purse and a baked potato in my mother's coat pocket and then mashed it into the fabric. People from the other area of the restaurant complained after my nephew threw food at them. My husband and I left, leaving a large tip for the servers. Other relatives did the same. The dining room was an utter disaster. Before we left town the next morning, my husband and I stopped by the restaurant and left additional money for the inconvenience of cleaning food out of the carpet. My grandmother asked the owner for a full bill of the damage and presented it to those children whose offspring made the mess. It started a huge family row, and of course, nobody is taking responsibility for their kids. I've never seen such appalling behavior, and I doubt my grandfather would have appreciated such disrespect. My husband and I are tempted to send the restaurant owner an anonymous money order because we doubt he will otherwise be compensated. My parents are supposed to have their 50th anniversary party at this restaurant next month, and the guest list is almost identical. They're too embarrassed to go, but don't want to lose their deposit. Should I send the money order? Whatever happened to manners? — Shocked Granddaughter Dear Shocked: They apparently got stuck with the mashed potatoes. What terrible behavior from the parents who allowed their children to run amok. And they do their children a disservice by making them unwelcome everywhere. We think your parents should go ahead with their plans to celebrate at that restaurant but issue invitations only to the adults. Children who are too immature to behave in public and whose parents refuse to control them should not be included in these events. We suspect your parents paid the cleaning bill, so instead of "donating" money to the restaurant, you might consider doing something special on your folks' behalf. Dear Annie: Every time I look in the papers, I see articles about wars, death, etc., but never about the homeless, especially homeless children and runaways. Why is that? These children are our future. There seems to be money for everything from new jails to fixing swimming pools, but not a word about money for the homeless. Why? — Frustrated Dear Frustrated: In the news business, death "sells." Runaways, not so much. But there are articles on the homeless if you look, and shelters are funded through federal, state and city government allocations, as well as by private philanthropy. You sound like a kind person. Please look for a shelter in your area and volunteer your time. It would be much appreciated. Dear Annie: I read the letter from "Cal in Maine," who complained that his grandchildren rarely communicate with him. I have reread and shared that letter many times. I totally agree with him, as my older grandchildren seem to care little about keeping in touch. But I also now remember how little I cared about keeping in touch with my own grandparents 40 years ago. I guess what goes around comes around. — Lois in Omaha Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Fiber or roughage — what’s the real difference? Dear Heloise: What is the difference between fiber and roughage? I know it’s important to get both, but they seem the same to me. — Zach K. in Florida What a great question! The answer is that they are and they aren’t! Dietary fiber and roughage are pretty much the same thing. But there are two different types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber is jellylike and dissolves in water. The flesh of fruits and vegetables (no skin) is soluble, as are oats and beans. Insoluble fiber is “roughage.” It’s what keeps your digestive system moving. It’s found in the skin of fruits and vegetables, and

Hints from Heloise Columnist in whole wheat and nuts. Both types of fiber are important to your good health. Fiber can help lower cholesterol, and it aids in digestion. An apple a day (skin and all) really can keep the doctor away! But don’t go overboard all at once. Add a little more fiber to your diet slowly,

and your body will thank you. Also, read labels, and you will be able to see how much fiber is in a serving. — Heloise NO DRIPS Dear Heloise: I have a cake recipe that I make to bring to a lot of functions that has a glazetype frosting that you pour over the top. It usually drips down and pools around the cake on the platter. I end up having to try to clean it up before serving. After I cut out wax paper to line the cake pans, I save the outer scraps. I put them down around the cake and on the platter. When done glazing and the glaze has finished dripping down, I just remove the wax

paper and throw it away. The platter stays clean and without drips! — Nicole G. in Washington BAKING HINT Dear Heloise: I bake just about every day. My favorite things to bake are pies and cookies. Most of them are rolled out. I buy about a yard of cheap muslin and cut four pieces to use for rolling out these goodies. It sure saves a lot of money instead of buying a special cloth for rolling. Once it gets a little bit soiled, I just throw it away and go to the next piece. I store the cloth I am working with in a plastic storage bag and keep it on a shelf in the pantry.















BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, May 9, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Today’s new Moon is the best time all year to think about earning money. You also might think about how to get the best use of what you own. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Today the only New Moon all year in your sign is taking place. Take a look in the mirror and ask yourself what you can do to improve your appearance. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Think about how much you’re willing to work behind the scenes and not get credit for what you do. It’s important to find a happy balance so that you don’t feel resentful. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Are you happy with friends in your life? Do you hang out with quality people? Remember: If you want to have friends, be friendly! LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) How do you react to authority in your life? Are you defensive or arrogant? And yet, if you are in authority, how do want others to react to you? Think about this. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) What further education or training might you get that will improve your job. What travel and further learning can enrich your life?

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Are you as clear as possible in all your communication? Do you listen when others speak? Think about this today.

Barack

Obama got a front-runner’s welcome back at the U.S. Capitol, where he was surrounded on the House floor by well-wishers calling him “Mr. President” and reaching out to pat him on the back or shake his hand. • Today’s Birthdays: Comedian Don Rickles is 87.

Limo fire victims mourned OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — From the privacy of their bedrooms to the public bustle of busy hospital wards, families and friends Tuesday struggled with the heartbreak of losing five loved ones, all nurses, who died Saturday in a burning limousine. Outside the Fruitvale HealthCare Center, the medical center where all nine met and became fast friends, nurse Medhanit Kahassai ran sobbing out the door into the parking lot on Tuesday, over-

whelmed with grief as flowers piled up in their break room. “It’s hard today,” she said. “I thought it would get better today. It’s not.” Dozens of “rest in peace” and “heartfelt condolences” messages poured into the women’s Facebook sites. Four passengers and the driver survived Saturday night’s deadly inferno that erupted as the women headed into San Francisco to celebrate the nuptials of Neriza Fojas, who died in the

blaze. The cause of the fire, captured on camera as a blast of flames at the back of the white stretch limo, is under investigation. Fojas, 31, and another victim Michelle Estrera, 35, were both nurses at Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno. Victims Jennifer Balon, a 39-year-old mother of two, and Anna Alcantara, 46, both worked at Fruitvale, while Felomina Geronga, 43, also a mother of two had been working at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Oakland. John Balon, whose wife Jennifer went by the nickname Jenni, told the San Francisco Chronicle that

The survivors managed to squeeze through the partition after the driver pulled over and climbed out. The victims were found pressed up against the partition. Several of Fruitvale’s chief staffers paid a somber visit Tuesday to the home of one of the surviving passengers, Nelia Arellano. Arellano and her visitors declined to speak after their meeting. Mourning was not limited Tuesday to those who knew the victims. “In our hospital, we didn’t know these women, but all of us Filipino nurses who work together are very affected by this,” Amy Johnson of San Jose said. “It touches all of us very much. Someone lost a mother, a sister, a daughter, that affects everybody.”

Marathon fund chief: Lower expectations BOSTON (AP) — The administrator of a fund created to help Boston Marathon bombing victims has a blunt message for them: Lower your expectations. Attorney Kenneth Feinberg said at a public meeting Tuesday that the $28 million One Fund Boston won’t pay out nearly enough to fully compensate the families of the three killed or the more than 260 injured, and may not pay much of anything to those with less serious injuries. “There isn’t enough money to pay everybody who justifiably expects it or needs it,” he said. Meanwhile, there was no resolution about where to bury one of the two suspects in the attack. An aide to Boston Mayor Thomas Menino said he did not want to see Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was a resident of Cambridge, buried in Boston and called the decision “a family issue.” “He believes he should be sent back to Russia. It wouldn’t be appropriate for him to be buried in Boston,” Menino spokeswoman Dot Joyce said. “He said his family wants him in Russia and that’s where he should go.” Worcester funeral home director Peter Stefan says more than 100 people in the U.S. and Canada have offered burial plots for the body, but officials in those cities and towns have said no. Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police days after the April 15 bombings. A Worcester police spokesman said Tuesday officials are hopeful they can resolve the issue within the next few days. Tsarnaev’s younger brother, Dzhokhar, is in a prison hospital facing charges that could bring the death


People pause to look at a makeshift memorial near the Boston Marathon finish line in Boston’s Copley Square Tuesday, in remembrance of the Boston Marathon bombings. penalty. On Tuesday, the area near the marathon finish line, where two bombs went off, was busy with pedestrians as Feinberg spoke with victims and others at the Boston Public Library, directly across from the site of the first explosion. Feinberg’s warning to lower expectations wasn’t lost on Dan Loring, whose daughter, Brittany, was so badly hurt by shrapnel from the first blast that she was in the hospital for 11 days. But the severity of her injuries still means she won’t qualify for the largest payments, leaving her father wondering about money for her care, including out-of-pocket expenses associated with her three surgeries and rehabilitation.

Loring, who lives in Lancaster, Mass., said he walked two miles to his Cambridge hotel “just to clear my head” after a similar meeting with Feinberg on Monday night that drew about 100 people. A few dozen were at Tuesday’s session, which Loring also attended. “After leaving last night, I’m not so confident now we’ll see much, if anything,” he said. Loring is not relying entirely on One Fund Boston, as an online campaign for his daughter on GiveForward has raised nearly $100,000 as of Tuesday. One Fund Boston was nearing $28.5 million, with about $11.5 million in public donations and about $17 million from corporations.

Feinberg’s draft plan for distributing the money reserves the highest payments for the families of the three killed in the bombings Martin Richard, Krystle Campbell, Lu Lingzi and for the family of MIT Police Officer Sean Collier, who was shot to death by the bombers as they attempted to flee. Those who suffered brain damage or double amputation of limbs also have top priority. Next are those who had single limbs amputated, followed by those who were injured enough to require overnight hospital stays. Although he hasn’t prospecific dollar posed amounts for compensation, Feinberg has said the families of those killed or those who had limbs amputated

could end up receiving $1 million each from the fund. Feinberg said as many as 15 to 20 victims needed single or double amputations. That means the number of larger payouts to those most seriously hurt could use up the bulk of the fund. Gov. Deval Patrick and Menino have made speed in getting the money to those who need it a top priority, said Feinberg, who hopes to begin sending payments June 30. But Feinberg emphasized the plan isn’t final and asked audience members their opinions on thorny issues that would the process, lengthen including whether a person’s income or insurance should be considered, with people who have more

money getting smaller payouts. During the two meetings, family members of victims presented sometimes excruciating dilemmas, including one woman who on Monday said her daughter lost one leg, and doctors were working to save her other one. The woman asked whether she should file for compensation as a single or double amputee. Others, including Loring, think money should be given to everyone who was hurt in any way by the bombings, even if it means less money for those with the worst injuries. He said people who helped save his daughter are still suffering mentally, but aren’t eligible for a claim. “Of the … people who donated (to The One Fund), if you polled them, they think it’s going to all the victims, not a selected class,” he said after the meeting Tuesday. Some weren’t sure what to ask Feinberg. Liz Norden, whose two adult sons each lost a leg in the bombing, said Monday that she’s “just focusing on the care of my sons. … I don’t know what questions I’m supposed to be asking or not asking.” Feinburg acknowledged the dilemmas and what he called the “rough justice” ahead in struggles to be both fast and fair. One example was his guideline under the draft plan that people who didn’t suffer amputations and who spent an equal number of days in the hospital get the same payouts, even if one person’s injury is far more severe. “This is a horrible undertaking,” Feinberg said. “It raises questions that I believe would defy Solomon in getting answers.”

Colorado shootings suspect to enter insanity plea DENVER (AP) — The man accused in the deadly Colorado theater shootings wants to change his plea to not guilty by reason of insanity, his lawyers said Tuesday, despite their fears that the plea could severely hamper his ability to mount a defense against the death penalty. James Holmes is charged with more than 160 counts of murder and attempted murder in the July 20 assault on a packed Aurora movie theater that killed 12 and injured 70. Prosecutors announced last month they would seek the death penalty. Holmes was widely expected to plead insanity given the compelling evidence against him, but his attorneys put it off for weeks, saying state laws on the death penalty and insanity overlap in ways that violate his constitutional rights and his

ability to mount an effective defense. One of their worries: If Holmes doesn’t cooperate with doctors who will evaluate his sanity at the state mental hospital, he could be barred from calling witnesses to testify about his mental condition during sentencing. That would make it nearly impossible for his lawyers to use his mental state as an argument against the death penalty. “If you don’t cooperate during the evaluation phase, you lose the right to call witnesses in your own behalf who could help convince a jury that your life should be spared,” said Karen Steinhauser, an adjunct law professor and former prosecutor. Two judges previously refused to address the constitutionality question, say-

ing Holmes couldn’t challenge the insanity law unless he entered an insanity plea first. That gave his lawyers little choice but to enter the plea and then try to make their case against the law. Their filing Tuesday made it clear they are not giving up their right to challenge the laws, Steinhauser said. Holmes was supposed to enter a plea March 12, but his lawyers said he refused to do so because the constitutional questions prevented them from giving him good advice. The judge in charge at the time, William Sylvester, entered a standard not guilty plea for him. Sylvester withdrew from the case April 1, saying his administrative duties as chief judge of the district wouldn’t allow him enough time. Sylvester assigned District

Judge Carlos Samour to take over. Samour must approve the new plea before Holmes is allowed to enter it, and he already has said he would require an explanation before he does so. Steinhauser said she doesn’t think that will be an issue. Samour said he would hear arguments from the defense and prosecutors about the new plea at a hearing Monday. If the judge does accept the plea, Holmes would be sent to the state mental hospital, where doctors would determine whether he was sane at the time of the shootings. If the doctors do determine Holmes was insane, a jury could still find him guilty. Holmes’ attorneys repeatedly have said in court hearings and documents that Holmes is mentally ill. He was being seen by a psychiatrist before the attack.

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.

Troy’s Shai Emerick tracks down a fly ball during a game against Trotwood Tuesday at Market Street Diamond in Troy.

“Last year as a team, we lost to Centerville 3-2, and it came down to Luke’s match against Brendlinger — which Luke lost in a third-set tiebreaker,” Troy coach Mark Goldner said. “But then he beat Brendlinger 8-1 or 8-2 at the GWOC meet and had a lot of confidence coming into today’s match. Brendlinger really stepped up his game, though. “Luke was down a match point in the second-set tiebreaker but came back and was able to hold on. Then he kind of let down and got behind 2-0 to start the third, broke and won a big game at 2-1, held to make it 2-2 and cruised from there.” The match finally finished

Smith throws perfect game, Troy rolls BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor After a 20-0 win on Monday, the Troy Trojans added some mercy to the mercy rule. On the mound, though, Amber Smith had none. The Trojans’ senior ace threw a perfect game on Senior Day, striking out nine — in addition to making a couple of solid defensive plays to preserve perfection — and Troy scored all of the runs it needed for a run-rule victory in the first inning in a 10-0 victory over the Trotwood Rams Tuesday at Market S t r e e t TROY Diamond. “She threw great today,” Troy coach Megan Campbell said. “She’s worked a lot, too. She didn’t want to just be where she was last year. We worked a lot on her breaking pitches before the season. She’s always had speed. Anytime you can have a key position like pitcher coming back (as a firstyear coach), it helps.” Smith struck out the first four and eight of the first 10 batters she faced in the game, and she also showed some quick reflexes by snaring a line drive hit right Troy’s Rainey Rohlfs scores a run Tuesday against Trotwood.

Rohlfs had two bunt singles in Troy’s 10-0 victory. In two games, the Trojans outscored Trotwood 30-0.

Choo key Reds’ win CINCINNATI (AP) — Devin Mesoraco and Shin-Soo Choo hit two-out homers in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday night, rallying the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves. Mesoraco connected for his first career pinch-hit homer off Craig Kimbrel (0-1), who blew a save for the second time in five days. Kimbrel went to a full count on Mesoraco before the catcher homered into the first row in center. Four pitches later, Choo hit his second homer of the game, giving him a team-leading seven. It was his second career game-ending homer. Kimbrel fanned the first two batters in the ninth and was only one strike away from getting his 100th career save. He’d allowed only one homer this season, but gave up two in a five-pitch sequence. Jonathan Broxton (1-1) retired three batters in the ninth for Cincinnati’s fourth win in five games. The comeback gave Dusty Baker his 1,600th victory as a manager, moving him ahead of Tommy Lasorda for 18th place on the career list.

Roundup ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Buccs hadn’t managed a hit off of Burden. Covington had a number of players contribute at the plate. Connor Schaffer belted a three-run homer in the third, Morgan Arbogast was 2 for 3 with a triple and a stolen base, Heidi Snipes finished 2 for 3 with a double, two stolen bases and three RBIs, Jessie Shilt went 2 for 2 with two steals and Brittany Flora added a hit. Pitcher Casey Yingst allowed four hits and one earned run in a winning effort. Burden went all five innings for Newton and struck out five. Miami East 6, Miss. Valley 0 CASSTOWN — Paige Kiesewetter, Madison Linn, Lindsey Brookhart, Christine Bowling, Olivia Edgell and Sarah O’Neal — Miami East’s six seniors — went out in style Tuesday with a 6-0 victory over Mississinawa Valley on Senior Night in Casstown. Kiesewetter had her usual dominant effort pitching, picking up another victory and striking out 13 in the process. Broohart finished 3 for 3 with a double, while Linn and Edgell added doubles. “It will be tough to see those girls go. They have given a lot to our program the last four years,” Miami East coach Brian Kadel said. “Most of them have started for the last three or four years. It was a sad night.” The Vikings (16-6, 9-1)

host Tri-Village today. Kenton Ridge 17, Tippecanoe 3 SPRINGFIELD — After Monday’s rainout and Tuesday’s loss, the Tippecanoe Red Devils don’t have much time if they want an outright Central Buckeye Conference Kenton Trail Division title. It’s today or never. That’s because the Red Devils — who entered Tuesday’s game unbeaten in CBC play but with only a one-game lead over the Cougars — got thumped 17-3 at Kenton Ridge, tying up the standings and making today’s makeup game at Tippecanoe a league title game. “Sometimes good teams need to get their butts kicked to realize they can’t take anything for granted,” Tippecanoe coach Charles Tackett said. “Tomorrow will be a different story, and the girls understand that.” • Baseball Troy 22, Trotwood 0 TROY — The Troy Trojans walked a lot in Monday’s 19-0 win over Trotwood. On Tuesday, they saw more pitches to hit — and took advantage of that, too. Troy (15-9, 6-4 Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division) scored 11 runs in the first inning and hammered out 23 hits in the game, routing the Rams 22-0 in its GWOC North finale. Alex Magoteaux was 4 for 5 with a double and five RBIs to lead the way. Devin

Hughes struck out 10 in the game, plus he added a two-run double in Tippecanoe’s (21-4, 12-2 Central Buckeye Conference) four-run third inning that put the game out of reach. He also added an RBI sac fly. Cameron Johnson was 3 for 4 in the game, Reid Ferrell was 2 for 4 with a double and Zack Blair doubled as the Devils tallied nine hits in the game. Tippecanoe was also scoreboard watching a little. Springfield Shawnee was taking on Tecumseh, and if the Braves lost, Tippecanoe would clinch a share of the league title. The result of the game was not available at time of press. The Devils host the Braves today in a makeup of Monday’s rainout. Miami East 9, Miss. Valley 2 CASSTOWN — Not even a rain delay could slow down the Miami East Vikings. Miami East (16-3, 9-0 Cross County Conference) scored five runs in the first two innings and got solid work on the mound from Brandon Kirk and Dylan Kinnison, beating Mississinawa Valley 9-2 Tuesday to stay unbeaten in conference play. Evan Bowling was 3 for 4 with a double and a triple, Michael Fellers was 3 for 3 with a double, Kirk was 2 for 4 with a double, Alex Brewer doubled and Garrett Mitchell tripled. Kirk also struck out seven in six scoreless


Covington’s Jessie Shilt (right) steals second while Newton shortstop Megan Rutledge (left) gets ready to receive the ball Tuesday in Covington. Blakely and Logan Perkins also doubled, and Nick Sanders and Trenton Wood tripled. Kyle Croft pitched four innings for the win, striking out two and giving up only one hit, and Dylan Cascaden pitched the final inning and struck out two. Troy hosts Versailles in its final home game of the season before finishing the regular season at Northmont on Saturday. Tippecanoe 5, Kenton Ridge 0 SPRINGFIELD — Ben Hughes didn’t have his best day. Then again, he has set the bar really, really high. Hughes threw a four-hit

shutout Tuesday at Kenton Ridge, winning his six game in as many starts and throwing in three RBIs at the plate for good measure in a 5-0 Tippecanoe victory over the Cougars. “Another shutout, that’s five in six starts. He’s got a three one-hitters and a nohitter … he gave up four hits today. So he was a little off his game, I guess,” Tippecanoe coach Bruce Cahill said jokingly. “No, Ben threw really well today. And he got out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam, too. That was good — that’s a situation that could happen sometime down the road, so it was good to see him work out of it.”

innings of work, and Kinnison struck out a pair and gave up two unearned runs in the seventh. “We jumped out on them, but then we got delayed,” Miami East coach Barry Coomes said. “Brandon pitched a good game, and Dylan did a good job of closing it out.” Miami East hosts TriVillage in a key CCC showdown today. Riverside 14, Troy Christian 2 TROY — It was the tale of two teams as Troy Christian coach Bill Campbell described it. A day after scoring a signature win against Lehman, the Eagles suffered a 14-2 loss to Riverside in five innings Tuesday night. Spencer Thomas led the Eagles on offense with a 2 for 3 performance and Jonah Noble added a double and two RBIs. The Eagles (6-9) travel to play Cedarville Thursday. They will host Mississinawa Valley in the Division IV sectional tournament Monday. “We don’t know much about them, other than they are 3-13,” Campbell said. “We had them scheduled for our first doubleheader of the year, but they cancelled on us. “If we play like we should play, I think we should be alright. We’ve been playing good teams — and that was the plan in order to get tournament ready. We did that last year and we broke all kinds of records.”

Islanders even up series UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) — John Tavares scored with 9:49 left, and the New York Islanders tied their first-round series with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night with a wild 6-4 victory. Only the final lead was safe in Game 4. Tavares slammed in his own rebound in front after Brad Boyes fed him following a turnover by Penguins star Evgeni Malkin. It was the Islanders’ third onegoal advantage in the game and the one that earned them a 2-2 tie in the highly entertaining series that has featured 54 and 6-4 finishes at Nassau Coliseum. Tavares was serenaded with cheers of “M-V-P” from the frantic crowd that is believing an upset is possible. Casey Cizikas shoved in a shot with 1:16 left to add some much-needed insurance. Captain Mark Streit scored twice, and Brian Strait and Kyle Okposo also had goals. Evgeni Nabokov made 27 saves for the eighth-seeded Islanders, who know they will last at least six games with the top-seeded Penguins. Game 5 is Thursday in Pittsburgh. James Neal, in his return after injuring his ankle in the series opener, scored in the first period. Malkin added a tying goal in the second, and Brandon Sutter and Pascal Dupuis provided the Penguins with a pair of one-goal leads they couldn’t protect. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped only 18 shots during a difficult night. Pittsburgh beat New York 5-4 in overtime on Sunday in a game in which both teams squandered two-goal leads. Senators 3, Canadiens 2 OTTAWA —Kyle Turris scored 2:32 into overtime, lifting the Ottawa Senators past the Montreal Canadiens 3-2 to grab a 31 lead in their playoff series Tuesday night. Turris’ shot from the sideboards sneaked past Montreal backup goalie Peter Budaj, who came on for the injured Carey Price at the start of overtime. Cory Conacher scored with 22.6 seconds to go in regulation to force overtime. Mika Zibanejad had the other goal for the Senators, who got 26 saves from Craig Anderson.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 back at her. The second time through the lineup, the Rams (0-16, 0-10 Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division) started putting the ball in play, but the Troy defense wasn’t about to let Smith’s chance at perfection slip by. And for the final out of the game, Smith got a called third strike to finish it off in the fifth. Offensively, Troy (1113, 6-4) only needed to do so much. The Trojans got all five of their hits in the first inning— three of them RBI bunt singles. Allison Pierce ripped a double for the hardest-hit ball of the day, and Smith singled up the middle to drive in another. Pierce also had one of the RBI bunts in the inning, and Rainey Rohlfs had two of them. Beyond that, Troy cashed in on five walks in the inning and drew 11 in the game, but once the Trojans hit that 10-run mark, they took the foot off the pedal and started sending runners early — which is an automatic out — intentionally to prevent another 20-run debacle. Aside from the action on the field, it was a

Game 3 is Saturday at Indianapolis. David West scored 13 points for the Pacers, who committed 21 turnovers that led to 32 points, negating their height advantage that loomed so large in their Game 1 victory. Indiana had trailed most of the night before taking a 64-62 lead on George Hill’s 3-pointer with 3:28 left in the third quarter that capped a 104 run, the Pacers seeming to have all the momentum. Vogel then called timeout with a little more than 3 minutes left and subbed out center Roy Hibbert. Anthony came back with a drive and then a dunk while drawing a foul that knocked over Hibbert’s replacement, Jeff Pendergraph, and the game was never the same.

NEW YORK (AP) — Carmelo Anthony scored 32 points, 16 during a 302 New York onslaught in the second half, the Knicks beat the Indiana Pacers 105-79 on Tuesday night to even the Eastern Conference semifinals at one game. Iman Shumpert added 15 points, including a sensational follow dunk in the first half, and Raymond Felton scored 14 as the Knicks turned a close game into a blowout over the final 15 minutes. Paul George scored 20 points for the Pacers, who had a two-point lead and momentum when coach Frank Vogel called timeout with a little more than 3 minutes left in the third quarter. By the time the Pacers got on the board in the final period, the Knicks had opened a 26-point advantage.
