Shooting suspect arrested Troy man in custody after six-hour standoff BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer myingst@civitasmedia.com

Check out this week’s iN75 The Miami County Sanitary Engineering Department is hosting a rain barrel and compost bin sale this Saturday. Also, a young baker opens a cake shop in Troy, and Doug’s Lawnmowers holds its customer appreciation day.

An argument over the ownership of a truck landed a Troy man in Miami County Jail Tuesday morning after a six-hour stand off with both Troy Police Department and the Miami County Sheriff’s Office S.W.A.T. team in the 200 block of Riverside Drive, Troy, in the early morning hours Tuesday.

According to Troy City Police Capt. Joe Long, Edward Neves, 56, of Troy, allegedly shot several rounds at an apartment located at 1350 Imperial Court, Troy, at 2:15 a.m. Tuesday. The victim was at home of the time the gun shots were fired into the apartment. Long said more than three witnesses observed a gray truck owned by Neves drive away from the scene. Officers arrived at

Neves’ home on 275 Riverside Drive and attempted several times to contact him by phone. Relatives confirmed to police that Neves NEVES had several firearms inside the home. Six people also were inside the Riverside residence during the stand-off and

TROY left the scene unharmed. Troy Police Department called the Miami County Sheriff ’s Office’s S.W.A.T. team at 4:30 a.m. after several attempts to contact Neves went unanswered. Neves finally walked out of the home without incident shortly before 8 a.m. and was placed in to custody without further incident.

For those about to graduate, I salute you When yet another class of Bobcats graduated earlier this month, I couldn’t help but wonder: Should I send a graduation card or a sympathy card? Though it feels like just yesterday — or, at the very most, a year ago — I actually graduated from Ohio University two years ago. (I know some of you are probably rolling your eyes, thinking, “Oh, but you’re still so young!” But in fact, I feel pretty old.) See Page 5.

The Troy City Schools will once again be looking for a new treasurer after formally accepting Craig Home Delivery: Jones’ resignation Monday. 335-5634 Jones was hired by Classified Advertising: Dayton Public Schools May (877) 844-8385 8 and will begin his new job on July 1. Jones has served as the chief fiscal officer for Troy 6 74825 22406 6 City Schools since 2010. Complete weather information on Page 10.

The board held an executive session meeting last Monday and will once again meet today in executive session to begin the process of hiring Jones’ replacement using Ohio School Board Association in its search, according to Jones. The board also hired Dan Hake as Concord Elementary School principal on Monday. Hake currently is a principal at Bennett Intermediate

TROY School in Piqua. Hake replaces Linda Lamb as Concord Elementary Principal. She was honored for her service with the district on Monday. Hake’s two-year contract begins Aug. 1. The board reviewed the district’s five-year forecast, which showed revenue $430,00 above estimates due to state aid and expenditures also up more than $270,880 for the 2012-2013 fiscal year. Jones said expenditures were up due

to benefits, mainly health insurance claims and higher premiums. Through the five-year forecast, Jones predicted the district’s cash reserves slowly depleted through 2017 with flat revenue receipts through the same time period. Jones estimates that total revenue will remain relatively flat for the next five years; $40,159,169 in 2013; $41,201,074 in 2014; $41,625,541 in 2015, $41,231,258 in 2016 and $40,369,306 in 2017.

US boom transforming global oil trade NEW YORK (AP) The surge in oil production in the U.S. and Canada and shrinking oil consumption in the developed world is transforming the global oil market. The threat of chronic oil shortages is all but gone, U.S. dependence on Middle Eastern oil will continue to dwindle, and oil will increasingly flow to the developing economies of Asia, according to a five-year outlook published Tuesday by the International Energy Agency. The report paints a picture of a world with plenty of oil to meet modestly growing demand. Where the oil is coming from, and where it is going, is changing dramatically, according to the IEA, an energy security and research organization based in Paris that serves 28 oil-importing countries, including the U.S. — Staff and wire reports

Hodges, president of the ESC Governing Board, and Tom Dunn, superintendent of ESC. The audience looked toward the podium where Dunn thanked sponsors support and contributions to the event before Lynne Eidemiller, talented and gifted coordinator at Miami County ESC, introduced the evening’s entertainment. Jessica Ogden, of Milton-Union, accompanied by Tim Williams, educator at Milton-Union schools, performed “Imagine” by John Lennon and “Second Hand White Baby Grand” by Scott Wittman and Mark Shaiman. After audience members applauded their outstanding performance, Dunn opened the floor to servers for the dinner portion of the banquet, catered by AVI Food Systems. Presentation of awards began at 7 p.m. with Covington High School’s Principal Ken Miller’s introduction of co-valedictorian Bryant Hicks. Bryant Hicks’ honored educator was Steve Dunn, who teaches math at Covington Schools. “Before Algebra II my sophomore year, I was indifferent to math. I did not hate the subject, but I did not like it either. Mr. Steve Dunn changed that,” Hicks

said. “I believe it takes an incredible teacher to change the mindset of a student.” In the fall, Hicks will be attending The Ohio State University and studying computer engineering. Covington’s other co-valedictorian, Michael Wilson, will be attending Miami University in the fall. Wilson spoke of his honored educator, Karen Brackman, naming her an “unsung hero” for her guidance. In his speech, he commented on the candy drawer in her office, making the audience laugh when he told her to “keep your drawer stocked and all will be well.” The speeches given by the students ranged from encouraging words and inspiring quotes, to humorous stories and touching moments. Piqua High School’s Principal Anthony “Tony” Lyons introduced valedictorian Anne Marie Finfrock and salutatorian Benjamin Crawford. Finfrock honored Linda Reason, whom she described as a “pillar of strength” and “not only a teacher, but a friend.” Finfrock will be attending Wright State University and studying biomedical engineering/pre-med.

Crawford will be attending The Ohio State University and will be studying neuroscience/premed. “He (Hornbeck) taught me lessons that will be with me forever,” said Crawford. “I’m going to miss his (Benjamin’s) smile, his incredible optimism and youth,” said Mimi Crawford, Dustin’s mother. All students in attendance have participated in a variety of extra-curriculars and academic endeavors. The introductions made by school principals further explained their students’ participation. After closing remarks, parents, students, and educators, made their way out of the banquet hall, ending the light-hearted evening. All the students and educators recognized were as follows: Emily Artz of Bethel and Carla Burton, Emily Braisted of Bethel and Traci Brewer, Derek Longshore of Bethel, and Bob Hamlin, Chelsea Dross Bradford and Michelle Lavey, Logan Houser of Bradford and Keba Hitzeman, Bryant Hicks of Covington and Steve Dunn, Michael Wilson of Covington and Karen Brackman, Dakota Potts of Miami East and Kathleen McCrillis, Montana Woolley of Miami East and Meghan Arnold,

Board urged not to arm Ohio teachers COLUMBUS (AP) — Top state law enforcers urged members of Ohio’s state school board on Tuesday not to support arming untrained teachers with guns in response to recent school shootings, including at a northeast Ohio high school and at Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary. “I hope you don’t give guns to teachers in schools,” Public Safety Director Tom Charles told the Ohio State Board of Education during a half-day school-safety briefing. “More guns aren’t the answer.” Lawmakers especially in Republican-dominated states responded to the Sandy Hook tragedy, in which 26 children and staff were killed, with

bills allowing teachers to carry hidden guns in schools to boost self-defense. The bills followed calls by the National Rifle Association for armed guards in schools. In the wake of emotional public debate, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine told the board Tuesday that he tries to remind the public that schools are still among the safest places children can be compared statistically to, say, riding in a car. He urged the school board to arm educators with information not firearms. “This is up to the local schools, but I would never, if I was on a school board, have anybody who is untrained with a gun in that school,” he said.

DeWine said training required to obtain an Ohio concealed-carry permit is not enough. “That’s not the kind of training I’m talking about,” he said. “I would want someone who had been in the military or who has been a police officer or who has taken some extensive courses, that’s beyond a 12-hour course.” DeWine’s office has distributed a training video to school districts across the state designed to help educators identify the warning signs in a potential future shooter and advising them on the latest response techniques. Kenneth Hinkle, president of the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police, said locking schools down during attacks is no longer considered the wisest approach to keeping children safe. He pointed to 4 minutes during the Columbine High School tragedy during which the shooter was outside the library and those inside might have escaped.

Expenditures will jump almost $7 million for the next five years, increasing from $40,976,323 in 2013 up to $47,743,822 in 2017. The district’s current cash reserves will be completely wiped out by 2017, according to Jones’ estimates. The district estimates that its current $8,744,496 cash reserves will dwindle each year: $7,508,261 in 2014, $4,896,053 in 2015, $62,219 in 2016 to a negative $7,572,296 in 2017. Director of curriculum and instruction Michael Moore provided the board a copy of Ohio’s Common Core changes, which include state and national revisions to public education. Moore said copies are available in the board office for public to review. Moore said more changes are expected in the future. Moore also said the junior high’s new multimedia course has been condensed to a one semester class to offer more students an opportunity to take the class. Moore also reported that the district’s Race to the Top federal grant will provide staff opportunities in the summer to prepare

for teacher evaluations along with the district’s planned waiver days for professional development. Troy City Schools’ principals will attend a training in June for the teacher evaluation initiative which begins next year. The board approved board policies including building and grounds security. The policy includes the schools to have surveillance cameras inside and outside of all school buildings and on school buses to assist in the security of students, staff and school property. The policy also states the administration is allowed to use stationary and/or mobile metal detectors at its discretion. The policy also states a search of a student’s person as a result of the activation of the detector and the search be conducted in private. Other policies approved were federal Title programs and early entrance to kindergarten. The board also approved a resolution authorizing the superintendent to accept resignations between board meetings when the board is not in session. Upon ratification, the date of the resignation would be effective. Superintendent Eric Herman and the board publicly thanked the district’s retirees at Monday’s meeting.

Long said multiple fire arms were seized from the home after a search warrant was served. Long said the S.W.A.T. team was utilized due to the amount of weapons Neves had in the home and the fact he had allegedly shot in to an occupied home. Officers had been called to the residence at Imperial Court about the vehicle ownership between the victim and Neves on Monday prior to the incident, but it was deemed a civil issue.The victim allegedly bought a truck from Neves and refused to pay for the vehicle. Long said charges may be changed or added. Currently Neves is being held without bail and is awaiting arraignment in the Miami County Jail. He is being charged with a second degree felony felonious assault, first degree felony of having a weapon under disability, fifth degree felony inducing panic and a first degree misdemeanor of having a weapon under intoxication.

Board considers basketball court board with the idea, Schultz suggested Hathaway Park as another location for the basketball court. Though Schultz was unable to attend the meeting, the board discussed his proposal. “He understood that Sycamore Woods Park was not a good place to have a basketball court and suggested Hathaway,” City Engineer Scott Vagedes explained. Hathaway Park, not far from the city government center and mostly surrounded by houses, currently features playground equipment and a stream with benches. Sycamore Park is an open, grassy field. A basketball court is not budgeted in the 5-year parks plan, but the board voted to consider the matter further. “I love the basketball court in my neighborhood park because it’s used a lot.

There’s a lot of kids that go there,” Board member Pam Hale said. Citing concerns about noise and limited space, the board recommended in April that Schultz gather more support from neighbors, come up with a cost estimate and layout, and come back to the board’s next meeting in May. Because funding for community parks is limited, the board also suggested that Schultz explore fundraising options. In other parks business, a new roof has been installed on the Round House in City Park. The repairs on the Round House continue with interior and exterior painting, which should be completed next week. The board also noted it is almost time again for the city to start thinking about the capital improvement projects plan for the next five years.

U.S. launches drone from aircraft carrier ABOARD THE USS GEORGE H.W. BUSH (AP) — A drone the size of a fighter jet took off from the deck of an American aircraft carrier for the first time Tuesday in a test flight that could eventually open the way for the U.S. to launch unmanned aircraft from just about any place in the world. The X-47B is the first drone designed to take off and land on a carrier, meaning the U.S. military would not need permission from other countries to use their bases. “As our access to overseas ports, forward operating locations and airspace is diminished around the world, the value of the aircraft carrier and the air wing becomes more and more important,” Rear Adm. Ted Branch, commander of Naval Air Forces Atlantic, said after the flight off the Virginia coast. “So today is history.” The move to expand the capabilities of the nation’s drones comes amid growing criticism of America’s use of Predators and Reapers to gather intelligence and carry out lethal missile attacks against terrorists in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen. Critics in the U.S. and abroad have charged that drone strikes cause widespread civilian deaths and are conducted with inadequate oversight. Still, defense analysts say drones are the future of warfare. The new Joint Strike Fighter jet “might be the last manned fighter the U.S. ever builds. They’re so expensive, they’re so complex, and you put a human at risk every time it takes off from a carrier,” said James Lewis, senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.

Above, an image provided by the US Navy shows sailors moving an X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System (UCAS) at dawn aboard the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush Tuesday. The drone was launched off the George H.W. Bush to be the first aircraft carrier to catapult launch an unmanned aircraft from its flight deck. At right, Northrop Grumman test pilots, Dave Lorenz and Bruce McFadden, left, prepare to taxi the Navy X-47B drone. “This is the next generation of military technology the unmanned vehicles, the unmanned submersibles, the unmanned aircraft. This will be the future of warfare, and it will be a warfare that is a little less risky for humans but maybe a little more effective when it comes to delivering weapons and effect.” While the X-47B isn’t intended for operational use, it will help Navy officials develop future carrier-based drones. Those drones could begin operating by 2020, according to Rear Adm. Mat

Winter, the Navy’s program executive officer for unmanned aviation and strike weapons. The X-47B is far bigger than the Predator, has three times the range and can be programmed to carry out missions with no human intervention, the Navy said. While the X-47B isn’t a stealth aircraft, it was designed with the low profile of one. That will help in the development of future stealth drones, which would be valuable as the military

changes its focus from the Middle East to the Pacific, where a number of countries’ air defenses are a lot stronger than Afghanistan’s. “Unmanned systems would be the likely choice in a theater or an environment that was highly defended or dangerous where we wouldn’t want to send manned aircraft,” Branch said. During Tuesday’s flight, the X-47B used a steam cat-

apult to launch, just as traditional Navy warplanes do. The unarmed aircraft then landed at Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Maryland. The next critical test for the tailless plane will come this summer, when it attempts to land on a moving aircraft carrier, one of the most difficult tasks for Navy pilots. Earlier this month, the

X-47B successfully landed at the air station using a tailhook to catch a cable and bring it to a quick stop, just as planes setting down on carriers have to do. The X-47B has a wingspan of about 62 feet and weighs 14,000 pounds, versus nearly 49 feet and about 1,100 pounds for the Predator. While Predators are typically piloted via remote control by someone in the U.S., the X-47B relies only on computer programs to tell it where to fly unless a human operator needs to step in. Eventually, one person may be able to control multiple unmanned aircraft at once, Branch said. The group Human Rights Watch said it is troubled by what it described as a trend toward the development of fully autonomous weapons that can choose and fire upon targets with no human intervention. “We’re saying you must have meaningful human control over key battlefield decisions of who lives and who dies. That should not be left up to the weapons system itself,” said Steve Goose, director of the arms division at Human Rights Watch. Developed by Northrop Grumman under a 2007 contract at a cost of $1.4 billion, the X-47B is capable of carrying weapons and providing around-the-clock intelligence, surveillance and targeting, according to the Navy, which has been giving updates on the project over the past few years. The X-47B can reach an altitude of more than 40,000 feet and has a range of more than 2,100 nautical miles, versus 675 for the Predator. The Navy plans to show the drone can be refueled in flight, which would give it even greater range.

Google CEO discloses ‘rare’ vocal cord problem posted Tuesday on his Google Plus profile cleared up a mystery hanging over him since he lost his voice a year ago, causing him to miss Google Inc.’s annual shareholders meeting in June and a conference call to discuss the company’s quarterly earnings in July.

You can have relief from Neuropathy. Some of the most difficult cases we care for involve Peripheral Neuropathy. This condition causes damage to the nerves of the legs and feet, and result in ongoing pain, numbmess, swelling or burning that often grows worse overtime. Finally, there is an effective treatment for the symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy that is safe, doesn’t involve drugs and is providing lasting relief for many people. Now there is hope for people, who until today, simply had to live with this terrible pain.

Page, 40, the company’s co-founder and CEO for the past two years, says his left vocal cord has been paralyzed since coming down with a severe cold 14 years ago, while Google was still in its formative stages. That issue was compounded last year with another cold that Page says impaired his right vocal cord, though it still has limited movement. Page’s unavailability last year spooked investors, especially those who remembered Apple Inc.’s initial refusal to

disclose the extent of cofounder Steve Jobs’ health problems. Jobs took two formal medical leaves as Apple’s CEO before resigning from the job about six weeks before his death from cancer. When Page had his health issue, Google had simply said Page was dealing with a throat problem that wouldn’t get in the way of his job. Wall Street’s worries about Page’s condition eased when he resurfaced in October to field questions during Google’s earnings call. Although his voice has been raspy and robotic-sounding at times, Page has spoken at length in each of Google’s three earnings calls since the one he missed. Page provided further

reassurance in Tuesday’s post. “Thankfully, after some initial recovery I’m fully able to do all I need to at home and at work, though my voice is softer than before,” he wrote. Doctors have not been able to diagnose why his vocal cords are hobbled, according to Page. The trouble could be tied to another health problem, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Page said he was diagnosed with that condition in 2003. He described it as a “fairly common benign inflammatory condition of the thyroid which causes me no problems.” The weakened vocal cords affect more than just Page’s voice. “Vocal cord nerve issues can also affect your

Investors seemed unfazed. After hitting a new all-time high of $888.69 Tuesday, Google’s stock was still up by $9.57, or 1.1 percent, to close at $887.10. The shares have risen by 50 percent since Page replaced Eric Schmidt as Google’s CEO in April 2011. “It’s a good thing that he is in good health, to a large extent,” said Standard & Poor’s Capital IQ analyst Scott Kessler. “It’s unfortunate that he is in a position where he felt compelled to disclose these personal details, though I applaud him for his transparency. I completely understand why shareholders would want to know and deserve to know about the well-being of a key person in a business that they are investing in.”

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Australian, Sydney, on Bunga Bunga bounces back: After his ignominious exit from office 18 months ago, it is hard to believe former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is back with his hands on the levers of power in Rome. But he is, and the hope must be that, despite the long shadow he casts, the country’s newly minted government will be able to act boldly to tackle what the Bank of Italy has declared the most acute crisis since World War II in the eurozone’s third-largest economy. Berlusconi is not a member of the new “grand coalition” of center-left and center-right parties. But his protege, Angelino Alfano, has been installed as deputy to the highly regarded new centerleft Democratic Party Prime Minister Enrico Letta, while Berlusconi loyalists have been given major Cabinet posts. Berlusconi, in the words of a leading commentator, has the power to “kill the government from one day to the next”, and that is a measure of the remarkable comeback by the former prime minister despite the sex and corruption scandals that have engulfed him.

The drills, which involved around 10,000 U.S. troops and South Korean counterparts, have provided an apt opportunity for Pyongyang to flex its muscles. The point is what’s next for the duo that had, of late, also signed a new agreement stating any attack on Seoul would be tantamount to an aggression against the United States. The show of strength, coupled with the political will, hasn’t made any difference as far as the intentions of the communist state are concerned. This drives home the point that resorting to use of force or politics of coercion hasn’t worked. Pyongyang is as dangerous as it was two months back. Rather it has gone over the brink and has unleashed a new wave of terror in the region by loading its missiles and putting forces on high alert. The White House has to do something special and out of the box to overcome this mentality and make a serious endeavor to reach out to the regime in Pyongyang. The U.S. mindset that the drills were meant to defend its ally and buoy peace could backfire if Pyongyang started reading too much between the lines. Operation Foal Eagle could turn foul for many of the eagles in Washington.

To those about to graduate, I salute you When yet another class of Bobcats graduated earlier this month, I couldn’t help but wonder: Should I send a graduation card or a sympathy card? Though it feels like just yesterday — or, at the very most, a year ago — I actually graduated from Ohio University two years ago. (I know some of you are probably rolling your eyes, thinking, “Oh, but you’re still so young!” But in fact, I feel pretty old.) Anyway, graduation is definitely at the top of my Most Depressing Days of My Life List — and that really is no hyperbole. The life you spent the last four years building suddenly unravels right before your eyes as you pack up that tiny apartment and take one last stroll through campus. You tearfully bid farewell to those closest friends who have come to know almost everything about you — and you wonder when (or if) you’ll see them again. And then you head back to the hometown you swear you’d never go back to, probably living with your parents for a bit. Your social life is roughly 10 percent as exciting as in college … if you’re lucky.

Natalie Knoth Troy Daily News Columnist Oh, the joys of graduating. Last year, a soon-to-be Yale grad called college “the opposite of loneliness,” and I think that’s a perfect description. Senior Marina Keegan wrote the column for a special edition of Yale’s school paper just days before she tragically died in a car accident. It’s a wonderful read. Keegan discusses the elusive web of college life, one that doesn’t really exist after graduation. Maybe it resurfaces and strengthens once you start a family, but I can tell you, it sure doesn’t exist in your early 20s otherwise. At least in my experience and that of nearly every one of my peers I know, this time of our life is all about floundering.

So I should be the last one to give advice to recent grads, but I’m going to try anyway. Hopefully I’ve learned enough through trial and error to be able to impart some wisdom: • Keep in touch with your close friends, but also try to see your acquaintances from time to time too. These are the buddies you had in class who can help you find jobs, or the friendly faces that will meet you for lunch when you’re lost and alone in a new city. • Never give up or take things too personally. Every time you apply for a job, there may be hundreds of people who are just as qualified. Apply anyway. Someone’s got to get the position, right? (Unless the employer later decides to fill it internally or not at all. So frustrating, but it happens.) • Use this time of uncertainty to learn a new skill (Zumba or painting classes?), go on a summer road trip or spend time with long-lost high school friends. If you’re a dork like me, make a list of books to tackle over the summer. Regardless, I’ve found that using your idle time wisely helps

keep post-grad depression at bay. • You might not want to, but if you find yourself unemployed, go back to that part-time job you had in high school or college. Saving money is always good. • Never forget that this time of your life builds character. You’ll laugh about it someday. • Everybody might seem to be more successful or happy than you are, but if you ever get the chance to have some heart-toheart conversations, you’ll realize they’re just as lost and confused as you are. But the most important thing is this: strive to be hopeful, patient and open-minded. Yes, that can be extremely difficult when the future is uncertain and it seems like all your peers are traveling to France or going on to med school or whatever. But trust that in due time, hard work and a positive attitude will pay off. Plus, your social life will pick up again, I promise. It may not be up to OU standards, but hey, you’ll muddle through somehow.

Popular psychologist Joyce Brothers dead at age 85

NEW YORK (AP) — Before Dr. Phil and Dr. Drew and Dr. Oz, there was Joyce Brothers. The popular psychologist pioneered the television advice show in the 1950s, opening the airwaves to discussions of love, marriage and parenting, as well as such taboo subjects as menopause, frigidity, impotence and sexual enjoyment. She went on to become an author, syndicated advice columnist and TV and film personality, setting the stage for today’s onenamed TV doctors. Brothers died Monday at age 85 of respiratory failure at her home in Fort Lee, N.J., said her daughter, Lisa Brothers Arbisser, an ophthalmologist in the Quad Cities of Iowa. Brothers’ funeral is at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday at the Riverside Memorial Chapel in Manhattan followed by burial at the Beth David Cemetery on Long Island. Phil McGraw called Brothers “a pioneer in the field of mental health.” “Decades before I came along, Dr. Joyce was able to get people talking about their emotional issues and problems. In her own gentle and caring way she let people know it was OK to discuss their feelings and emotions,” he said in a statement Monday. “She had a great sense of humor and gave very sound advice in her column and whenever she appeared on TV. I owe her a great deal for what she did for the mental health profession and society owes her a big thank you.” John G. Moorman Brothers first gained fame on the game PIQUA — John G.

Brothers tried her luck again on the superseding “$64,000 Challenge,” answering each question correctly and earning the dubious distinction as one of the biggest winners in the history of television quiz shows. She later denied any knowledge of cheating, and during a 1959 hearing in the quiz show scandal, a producer exonerated her of involvement. Her celebrity opened up doors. In 1956, she became co-host of “Sports Showcast” and frequently appeared on talk shows. Two years later, NBC offered her a trial on an afternoon television program in which she advised on love, marriage, sex and child-rearing. Its success led to a nationally telecast program, and subsequent late-night shows that addressed even racier topics. She also dispensed advice on several phone-in radio programs, sometimes going live. She was criticized by some for giving out advice without knowing her callers’ histories. But Brothers responded that she was not practicing therapy on the air and that she advised callers to seek professional help when needed. Despite criticism of the format, the call-in show took off, and by 1985, the Association of Media Psychologists was created to monitor for abuses. Dr. Drew Pinsky, who has offered his medical expertise in radio and television formats first pioneered by Brothers, saluted her impact on the industry. “Knew nothing about her history on the $64,000 question, but I did know Joyce Brothers,” he wrote on Twitter. “She was a pioneer and very knowledgable.” Other celebrities, including Paris Hilton, rapper Common and motivational guru Tony Robbins, posted bits of Brothers’ advice on Twitter, such as: “The best proof of love is trust.” For almost four decades, Brothers was a columnist for Good Housekeeping. She also wrote a daily syndicated advice column that appeared in more than 350 newspapers. Briefly, in 1961, she was host of her own television program. Later, Brothers branched out into film, playing herself in more than a dozen movies, including “Analyze That” (2002), “Beethoven’s 4th” (2001), “Lover’s Knot” (1996) and “Dear God” (1996). She was also an advocate for women. In the 1970s, Brothers called for changing textbooks to remove sexist bias, noting that nonsexist cultures tend to be less warlike.

Former NFL player Muncie dies METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Chuck Muncie, a Pro Bowl running back with both the New Orleans Saints and San Diego Chargers, has died at age 60, the NFL clubs and a family spokesman said Tuesday. Muncie family spokesman Vintage Foster of AMF Media Group in San Ramon, Calif., said Muncie died at his Los Angeles-area home on Monday from heart failure. Muncie was the Saints’ first-round pick, third overall, out of California in 1976. He played four seasons in New Orleans before being traded in 1980 to San Diego, where he finished his nine-year NFL career. In 1979, Muncie became the first Saint to rush for 1,000 yards, finishing with 1,198 and 11 touchdowns, and his 1,506 total yards from scrimmage earned him the first of his three Pro Bowl selections. The 6-foot-3 Muncie, who played at 227 pounds, and fellow Saints running back Tony Galbreath formed what then-coach Hank Stram dubbed the “Thunder and Lightning” combination in the New Orleans backfield. Muncie’s photo is among those featured on the Saints’ Hall of Honor inside the club’s training facility. Saints owner Tom

In this Jan. 19, 1983, file photo, San Diego Chargers Chuck Muncie breaks free from Pittsburgh Steelers defender Dwayne Woodruff as he runs for a gain during the fourth quarter of an NFL football playoff game in Pittsburgh. Benson said in a written statement that the Saints were mourning Muncie’s “untimely passing,” adding, “Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and other loved ones at this difficult time.” Muncie was traded by the Saints at midseason in 1980 to San Diego, where he played 51 games and was named to Pro Bowl rosters two more times, in 1981 and ‘82. In 2009, the club recognized him as one of the 50 greatest Chargers of all time. His accomplishments on the field came despite cocaine use, and in 1989, five years after his retire-

ment from pro football, Muncie was sentenced to 18 months in prison for a cocaine distribution conviction. Thereafter, however, he began sharing his life story with at-risk youth, highlighting his struggles with drug abuse. He created the Chuck Muncie Youth Foundation, the mission of which was to offer children mentoring, educational assistance and counseling. “His work with at-risk youth, the Boys and Girls Clubs and his foundation were the things that really made him shine,” Muncie’s daughter, Danielle Ward, said in a written statement provided by Foster.

Tell Taylor beside the Blanchard River

For Discussion: Here are the lyrics to “Down by the Old Mill Stream” (Chicago: Tell Taylor, c.1910): My darling I am dreaming of the days gone by, When you and I were sweethearts beneath the summer sky; Your hair has turned to silver, the gold has faded too; But still I will remember where I first met you. The old mill wheel is silent and has fallen down, The old oak tree has withered and lies there on the ground; While you and I are sweethearts the same as days of yore; Although we’ve been together, forty years and more. Chorus: Down by the old mill stream where I first met you, With your eyes of blue, dressed in gingham, too, It was there I knew that you loved me true, You were sixteen, my village queen, by the old mill stream.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

TROY TV-5

Talk directly to your ex-husband about your concerns

Today: 5 p.m.: Miami Valley Community Calendar 6 p.m.: Ultimate Sports 8 p.m.: Legislative Update

Dear Annie: I am finally divorced. My ex and I have a minor child together. He has met my new partner, and they get along great while at our son's sporting events. I thought it would be healthy for our son to see us as friends. I also thought it would be nice to meet my ex's new girlfriend since they've been a couple as long as I've been with my guy. I made several requests to introduce myself, but she refuses to meet me. I find this odd, because she helps take care of my son when he's in my ex's home. It seems to be a control tactic on her part. My ex never stands up to this woman about her treatment of me, and although I've never said a nasty word to her, she sends me ranting emails regularly. She once mailed a four-page hate letter about my parenting skills. I feel bullied. For the record, my ex is kind to me when she is not around. But when he's on the phone with me and she's nearby, he becomes rude and hostile. I'm sure he's putting on a show for her. I've always promoted my child's father in a positive light, but I am tired of this infantile behavior. It's exhausting. Requests, questions and messages about school activities often go unanswered, or I get one-word responses from him. Then he accuses me of not keeping him informed. My family has suggested that I stop communicating with him altogether. What do you think? — Texas Dear Texas: If you have an opportunity to talk privately with your ex, calmly explain that it is difficult for you to deal with his inappropriate behavior on the phone, and you would appreciate it if he would be civil in your interactions. Otherwise, you will expect him to get his information through the school, and you will instruct the office to include him. His girlfriend seems abusive to you, and it's a shame your ex doesn't have the backbone to stand up to her. (She may be abusive to him, as well.) We trust she does not take this out on your child, but please keep an eye on that. Dear Annie: I just left my dermatologist's office after waiting an hour to see him, and I'm furious. Don't doctors realize that their patients' time is also valuable? Another doctor left me sitting in his office for two hours, and I was the second appointment of the day. When I asked the receptionist why the long wait, she told me the doctor likes to flirt with the nurses at the hospital. This same doctor charged me for a hospital visit after he popped his head into my room to say he was running late and didn't have time to see me. If doctors know they are likely to run late, why don't they stretch the time between appointments? I'm sick and tired of physicians expecting their patients to finance their fancy homes and golf memberships while they treat us so poorly. — Fed Up in Louisville Dear Fed Up: Some doctors cannot help running late if they have emergencies. And others are working to schedule less crowded appointments or to phone patients when they are behind. But your most effective policy is to find doctors who are more accommodating to your schedule. If you consistently wait more than an hour for a regular appointment because the doctor is "flirting," tell the doctor (not the receptionist) that you will be looking for another physician and why. Dear Annie: You have printed letters about adoptees searching for their biological families, but I think people ought to look at this in a different manner. If you don't know your biological family, you also won't know whether the person you fall in love with is a sibling. Everyone needs to know who his or her family is. — Just a Thought Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS

Beyonce cancels Belgium show NEW YORK (AP) — Beyonce canceled her Tuesday concert in Belgium because of dehydration and exhaustion. In an email to The Associated Press, the singer’s publicist said Beyonce has been advised by her doctors to rest. She was scheduled to perform at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp. The show will be rescheduled and tickets can be used at that show. Her next tour date is today at the same arena. The statement says “she is awaiting word from her doctors before making a decision.” Beyonce, 31, launched her “Mrs. Carter World Tour” last month in Belgrade, Serbia. It wraps Aug. 5 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Nicole Richie gets candid in new AOL web series NEW YORK — As the Twitterverse expands with millions of users, it can be hard to have a unique voice.

Nicole Richie doesn’t have that problem. Some examples: “‘It’s 8:30am & I’ve already gotten into 5 fights’ — thugs, and parents of toddlers.” “This therapist is going to be GREAT for me once I stop lying to him.” “I’m gonna dress up as an iPhone so my husband pays attention to me.” Tweets like that earned her not only millions of followers but the attention of production company Telepictures, which was already aware of Richie’s popularity and wanted to work with her. “As soon as we began pursuing her we also began following her on Twitter,” recalls Sheila Bouttier, Sr. Vice President of Development of Telepictures. “We were struck by how funny and candid she was and wanted to really showcase that side of her personality, which we haven’t seen in a long time.” They teamed up with AOL to create the web series (hash)CandidlyNicole. Each video is about five minutes and a new one is posted every Tuesday morning.

HINTS FROM HELOISE

The old saying is true: Say ‘eye’ for carrots Dear Readers: The old saying that carrots are good for your eyes is true! They won’t make your vision better, but they can play an important role in your eye health. Carrots, like other orangecolored produce (sweet potatoes, cantaloupe), are rich in beta carotene. If your family isn’t fond of vegetables, try “sneaking” some good nutrients and vitamins into something sweet, like Heloise’s Carrot Cake: 1 cup sugar 3/4 cup salad oil 1 1/2 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda

Hints from Heloise Columnist 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup grated carrots 2 eggs 1/2 cup chopped nuts Mix sugar and oil. Slowly add sifted dry ingredients. Next, mix in carrots, then add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add

nuts last, and blend. Bake in a round cake tin at 375 F for 35 to 40 minutes. After the cake is cool, slice it horizontally to make two layers. Put filling (canned frosting) between the cut sides, and frost the remainder of the cake. Enjoy! For more recipes and moneysaving hints, send $5 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (66 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Baking Soda, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Use baking soda as a nonabrasive cleaner on that cake pan by dampening a sponge with water, sprinkling

on baking soda and wiping it clean! — Heloise CHOCOLATE CHIPS Dear Heloise: Will chocolate chips last longer if I store them in the freezer? — Jean C., via email The answer is yes and no, according to the experts. Technically, you can freeze them, but this supposedly gives only an additional 30-day shelf life. You also can keep them in the refrigerator, as I do. Wrap them securely in plastic wrap first, then put them into plastic bags to be sure no “refrigerator odors” seep into the bag. — Heloise

BY FRANCES DRAKE Wednesday, May 15, 2013 You should be able to notice some steady improvement in several matters of considerable importance. Be content with the speed of your progress instead of trying to rush things along. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Although your prospects for personal gain look good, don’t expect to become a millionaire overnight. Be grateful for the profitable developments that come your way. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Be logical and practical about your financial dealings, but by the same token, don’t discount any of your hunches. Your intuition might be sensing something you’re missing. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — A surefire way to guarantee that your friends will speak well of you is to speak highly of them. However, make sure what you say is sincere, not just flattery. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — The race will go to the smart and not necessarily to the swift in career-related matters. Be sure you use your head wisely, so that you can be numbered among the winners. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Those that aren’t tuned into your wavelength will prove to be a big bore. Try to associate with companions whose likes and dislikes parallel yours. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Timing is important when you are trying to promote something that could be financially beneficial. Wait to make your pitch until you have your prospect’s full attention. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — If you have to make a critical decision, get as much feedback from others as you can. Some of their input could reveal important aspects that you’ve overlooked. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — This is a good day to talk to the boss about some changes that you feel would help the operation. If it makes sense, your superior will be interested. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — When dealing with others on a one-onone basis, “Judge not lest ye be judged” is a good adage to keep in mind. Your associates will emulate your behavior. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — When in conversation about a critical decision, the debate won’t be won by the person who has the last word. Go for quality, not quantity. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You’re an extremely effective communicator, so don’t waste your time on idle chatter. Use your skills to charm people who can help advance your interests. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Someone with your interests at heart will show you a procedure that could strengthen your financial position. It would be smart to follow his or her suggestions.

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. (AP) — Riding the Jet Star roller coaster as a girl vacationing at the Jersey shore, Nicole Jones said there was always that one breath-catching moment when the passenger cars swerved toward the ocean, as if threatening to dump riders into the surf. When Superstorm Sandy hit last October, it was the roller coaster itself that plunged into the waves off the amusement pier where it had been anchored for decades. Work crews, making better progress on Tuesday than anticipated, began tearing down the remains of the roller coaster and placing them on a huge storage barge, which was expected to carry away the last remnants of the beloved ride within 48 hours. About half of it was gone by mid-afternoon. The image of the Jet Star, sitting in the ocean, was perhaps the most famous and enduring image of Superstorm Sandy. It appeared hundreds of times in media accounts and graced T-shirts, hoodies and car magnets, sold by the numerous charities raising money for storm victims. “It was always a thrill. It didn’t matter how many times you went on it,” said Jones, now 21, who grew up in northern New Jersey but recently moved to the shore, where she was a regular visitor during the summers from the time she was 5. “It was that scary moment when it went around the curve at the top, and you felt like maybe you were going to fall in the ocean. But then somehow you never did. “It’s heartbreaking to see it like this,” she added. The ride is privately owned by Casino Pier, one of two amusement piers in Seaside Heights that were devastated by the Oct. 29 storm. Funtown Pier, at the southern end of the board-

walk, was so badly damaged it cannot open this summer, but will be back in 2014. Casino Pier is being rebuilt and will include at least 18 rides this summer, including a new pendulum ride called The Superstorm, in defiance of Sandy. The coaster’s removal was delayed for months while the company wrangled with insurers and contractors over a rare engineering feat: Exactly how DO you snag a roller coaster out of the sea? In the end, they came up with a fairly simple solution. The company hired Weeks Marine, an experienced maritime contractor, to bring a barge bearing a giant crane with the same sort of grasping claw featured in miniature in so many Seaside Heights arcades, where contestants maneuver the device and try to capture a stuffed animal or sports jersey as a prize. Tuesday morning, shortly after Great Britain’s Price Harry had wrapped up a brief visit to the boardwalk as part of a U.S. tour, the crane roared to life and began grasping and wrenching loose twisted sections of metal track, dropping them onto the barge for later removal. Seaside Heights Mayor Bill Akers said the wind and weather had to be just right for the job and were expected to be over the next 48 to 72 hours. Work would progress around the clock until the last of the coaster is gone. The project also will remove three other rides that fell from the pier and into the ocean during the storm, but have been submerged and out of view since then, said Toby Wolf, a spokeswoman for the pier’s owners. The Stillwalk Manor, a haunted housetype ride; The Centrifuge, and the Log Flume all plunged off the pier and into the waves.

Galanter returned, saying Simpson would take no more than 12 months, and Roger said he felt Simpson didn’t want a deal. “There were no further negotiations” he told Fumo. Galanter’s tactics also drew criticism Tuesday from the lawyer who represented Simpson in a Santa Monica, Calif., case that resulted in the celebrity defendant getting back some items involved in the Las Vegas caper. Attorney Ronald P. Slates testified by telephone from Los Angeles about gaining custody of Simpson’s neckties and footballs. “Did you know Yale Galanter?” Fumo asked. “Yes,” he said. “He would show up in court to take credit for what he didn’t do.” Simpson won a small victory earlier Tuesday when District Court Judge Linda Marie Bell granted a defense request to have one of Simpson’s hands unshackled to drink water and take notes. Simpson’s left hand was still cuffed to his chair. Simpson managed a smile and a waist-high wave with his shackled hand as he entered the courtroom and found friends and family members in the audience. Among them was Tom Scotto, whose wedding was the reason for Simpson’s ill- fated trip to Las Vegas. “He looks like a beaten man,” Scotto said outside court after seeing his old friend clad in a dingy blue prison uniform and orange prison issue slippers, chains clanking around his feet and waist. Simpson, who will be 70 before he is eligible for parole, has filed a writ of habeas corpus, his last chance under state law to prove that he was wrongly convicted and win a new trial. A federal court appeal is still possible. Nineteen separate reasons for reversal are being considered in the hearing, which was taking place absent the fanfare that surrounded Simpson’s “trial of the century” in Los Angeles and his 2008 trial in Las Vegas. Seats went unfilled in the courtroom gallery. After his acquittal on the LA murder charges, Simpson was found liable for damages in a civil wrongful death lawsuit and ordered to pay $33.5 million to the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.

ly car bomb exploded near a hospital in Benghazi and officials gave conflicting numbers on the death toll. “There is simply no substitute for having a confirmed U.S. ambassador on the ground, reaching outside the wire to the Libyan people as they shape a safer, more productive and inclusive future,” Menendez said. At her confirmation hearing earlier this month, Jones promised to work to ensure sufficient security at U.S. facilities, saying the ambassador was the principle security officer and vowing to simply pick up the phone and call

Senate, Jones would take over an ambassadorship that has been vacant for nearly eight months. The Obama administration’s response to the attacks has been the subject of a long-running and bitter dispute with congressional Republicans. The GOP has accused the administration of trying to cover up details of the assault and its aftermath. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., ratcheted up the political criticism on Tuesday, saying the GOP was hyperventilating about the Benghazi attack. “It’s about smear poli-

Republican budget cuts, including the $300 million from the Obama administration’s request of $2.6 billion for diplomatic and embassy security last year. “Again and again Republicans have blocked, opposed or reduced embassy security funding …. so again, where is the outrage on this. The real fact is Republicans are more concerned about giving President Obama a black eye and taking shots at Secretary (Hillary Rodham) Clinton than actually tracking down the people who performed these outrageous acts of terrorism.”

McGraw’s single in 11th propels Troy past Piqua BY COLIN FOSTER Associate Sports Editor colinfoster@civitasmedia.com

Tipp 4x800 sets CBC record

With runners at first and second with one out in the bottom of the 11th inning, Troy’s Kevin McGraw, who was 0 for 3 at the time, came to the plate. “I was just trying to get a single,” said McGraw about how he approached his final at-bat. “I wasn’t trying to do anything special. I was just trying to get that run in.” What McGraw did, however, turned out to be pretty special.

Staff Reports Tippecanoe got off to a roaring start at the Central Buckeye Conference meet Tuesday in Bellefontaine. Rick Andrews, Grant Koch, Sam Wharton and Mitchell Poynter coasted to victory in the 4x800 relay (8:00.45) — beating the previous CBC record (8:06.1) by six seconds. And that’s not even their best time of the year.

PIQUA McGraw hit an RBI single to score Ian Nadolny to lift the Trojans to a 5-4 victory over rival Piqua in the opening round of Division I sectional play Tuesday night at Hardman Field. Troy moves on to face Greater Western Ohio Conference North foe Sidney, a 9-3 winner over Beavercreek, at 5 p.m. Thursday. “I think the lesson learned for our guys is, you know, there’s always going to be moments where you can step up, and if you don’t do it once, (that chance) is going to come up again,” Troy coach Ty Welker said. “I think I pinch-hit for him in the sixth inning.

MIAMI COUNTY

FAIRBORN — Troy capitalized on enough of its many chances to hold a one-run lead with two innings to play. The Trojans needed to cash in a few more, though. Fairborn (10-17) tied Monday’s game up in the bottom of the sixth and plated the gamewinner in the seventh to oust the Trojans from the Division I sec-

tional first-round tournament, 54. Troy drew nine walks in the game and had seven hits. “It’s the same story as the rest of the season: seven hits, nine walks, that’s 16 baserunners. We just couldn’t cash them in,” Troy coach Megan Campbell said. “Multiple times we had the bases loaded and couldn’t get the runs

in. We had way more on base than them, and in my opinion I thought we played the better game. We just didn’t cash in enough of our chances.” Alex Wilt drew three walks herself, Megan Schreiber doubled, Maggie McClurg was 2 for 3 and Amber Smith was 1 for 2 for the Trojans, who finished Campbell’s first season at 11-15. “We’re going to miss our seniors a lot,” Campbell said. “It was

a very tearful night. A lot of the way we gelled as a team, how we picked each other up, that came through their leadership. We’ll have some holes to fill not only on the field, but in the dugout.” But the experience was still good, and not just for the younger Trojans. “After this first year, we have a much clearer picture of what

Reds beat Marlins Troy-Piqua for 4th straight win ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 him, and he had to re-enter defensively. Then he got another chance. “He could have held his head and thought about how I pinch-hit for him, but he didn’t. He stepped up when it mattered. He did a nice job — everybody did. Our pitchers, (Ben) Langdon and (Zach) Kendall, kept us in the game, our defense made some nice plays when they needed to make plays. We would have liked it have done it in seven, but I tell you what, that was pretty exciting for those boys. We haven’t won a playoff game for at least four years, so to win a game like that against a quality opponent is nice. I have the utmost respect for coach (Jared) Adkins and their team. They competed, and it was a battle. We preach that, that’s what we have prepared for all year — for that type of game.” Troy’s Dylan Cascaden broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the third with a solo shot off of Piqua pitcher Colin Lavy. Then in the home fourth, Alex Magoteaux singled to start the inning. He was bunted to second by Greg Johnson, then Nadolny smacked a double into the gap to make it 2-0. Nadolny advanced to third on the throw home, then made a heady play on the basepaths to score on a shallow fly ball to first base. Langdon had consecutive one-two-three innings to start the game before encountering trouble in the third and fourth innings.

Bailey hurls six-hitter to get first victory since April 5 (2-5), who gave up six runs in five innings. He hit a batter with a pitch and walked two both with the bases loaded. Joey Votto drove in a run and had three hits to hike his average to .322. Ryan Hanigan added two hits to raise his average to .149. Miami batted rookies Derek Dietrich and Marcell Ozuna third and fourth. The strategy failed to jump-start an offense ranked last in the majors in runs, batting average and homers. The Marlins have totaled three runs in Nolasco’s past three starts. Cincinnati broke the game open by scoring five runs in the second inning, all with two outs. Nolasco hit Shin-Soo Choo with a pitch and, after the Reds loaded the bases, walked Votto and Phillips to force in runs. Nolasco then grooved a 3-1 pitch to Paul, who hit a three-run double that put Cincinnati ahead 6-1. Phillips singled home a run in the first after Zack Cozart doubled and went to third on a single by Votto. Miami also scored in the first when Juan Pierre led off with a double and came home on a single by Dietrich.

MIAMI (AP) — Homer Bailey pitched a six-hitter to earn his first victory since April 5, and the Cincinnati Reds extended their winning streak to four games by beating the Miami Marlins 6-2 Tuesday night. Xavier Paul hit a three-run double for the Reds, who took advantage of consecutive basesloaded walks by Ricky Nolasco. Brandon Phillips, who began the night tied for the NL lead in RBIs, drove in two runs. Bailey (2-3), who threw a career-high 125 pitches, tied his major league best with 10 strikeouts and walked none in his fourth complete game. He retired the final eight batters, and his last pitch was a 97 mph fastball. The right-hander, who has had spotty run support this season, lowered his ERA at night to 1.80. His ERA in three daytime starts is 7.16. The Reds climbed a season-best seven games above .500 as they began a nine-game trip. The Marlins, who have the NL’s worst record, lost their third game in a row and fell to 5-12 at home. A brief, uncharacteristic bout of wildness proved costly for Nolasco

To their credit, the Indians were able to rally against new Troy pitcher Zach Kendall in the top of the seventh, as Buddy Nix’s fly ball was deep enough to score Marsh and tie the score at 4-4. Kendall settled down after the seventh. He continued to grind and worked his way out of jams in the eighth and ninth innings. Piqua’s leadoff hitter (Young) reached in the ninth and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt. The Trojans got out of the jam, though, thanks to an untimely error on the base paths by the Indians. With one out, Mace hit a lazy fly ball to right and Young tagged to third. The umpires ruled that Young left early, and the Trojans got out of the inning. Reedy entered to pitch for Piqua in the bottom of the seventh and proceeded to shut down the Troy offense for three innings, until he encountered problems in the 10th. Ace Cam Gordon took over with two runners on in the tenth and was able to get the Indians out of the inning. Gordon, who had a 6-1 record coming into Tuesday, wasn’t able to work his way out of trouble in the 11th, though. McGraw made sure of that.

Penguins top Senators

Pacers cruise past Knicks, 93-82

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Paul Martin and Chris Kunitz scored power-play goals and Pascal Dupuis added his sixth goal of the playoffs and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Ottawa Senators 4-1 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Tuesday. Evgeni Malkin extended his points streak to seven games with a goal an assist for and Pittsburgh. Game 2 is Friday night. Tomas Vokoun stopped 35 shots to win his third straight start and topseeded Pittsburgh never trailed. Colin Greening scored for the Senators. Craig

Anderson made 26 saves but Ottawa had no answer for Pittsburgh’s power play. The Penguins are 9 of 24 with the man advantage through seven playoff games, best of the eight teams remaining in the postseason. The Senators had the NHL’s best penalty kill during the regular season and turned aside 16 of 19 against penalties Montreal in the first round. Pittsburgh was pushed to six games by the New York Islanders during a spirited first-round series in which the youthful Islanders had the Penguins on their heels at times.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Pacers finally figured it out. When given the chance to take command of a playoff series, they can’t give it back. On Tuesday night, they didn’t. George Hill scored 26 points and Paul George had 18 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists, leading the Pacers past the New York Knicks, 93-82 and to within one win of their first conference finals appearance since 2004. “We wanted it,” George said. “For us to come out with that edge, still, after being up 2-1 and being on our floor for Game 4, for us to be up and ready and have an edge to play, it

just speaks to how focused we are right now.” It was a far cry from what Indiana experienced a week ago in New York. Or last year at home against Miami. Last week, the Knicks rallied from a Game 1 loss, using a 30-2 run to blow out Indiana at Madison Square Garden and even the series. A year ago, the Pacers held a 2-1 lead over Miami but gave away Game 4 and never won again. Miami went on to win the NBA crown. So the Pacers went into Tuesday night determined not let it happen again, certainly not with former stars Reggie Miller and

Rik Smits in the house watching their old team hand it to their old rivals. “I just think that our focus has been better than it was,” Indiana’s David West said. “We might have surprised ourselves going in there and getting Game 1. Naturally, we may have had a little letdown, but we talked about maintaining our home court and our focus in these two games and we were able to accomplish that. Our next goal is to compete hard with an opportunity for a close-out game in a tough environment.” The Pacers were strong defensively again, had another big rebounding advantage (54-36) and

Lehman’s Louis Gaier hits a volley Tuesday at Troy Community Park. ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 juniors, played first doubles for the Bulldogs last season. But the team was broken up for the tournament, with Dickison teaming up with then-senior and singles player Marshall Winterbotham and reaching the district level. Then this season, the duo played second and third singles — only to reunite now in the postseason. “Honestly, it does (help),” Blevins said of having played together before.”Kenton and I played great together last year. All of his strengths are my weaknesses, and all of my strengths are his weaknesses. Where I have power, he has consistency.” “It’s like we’re rekindling a bromance.” Their competition on Tuesday wasn’t a fan. Dickison and Blevins blasted Urbana in the first round 6-3, 6-0 and routed Northwestern 6-1, 6-0 in the quarterfinal round to advance. Only a few scattered unforced errors, double faults — and some wind-aided lobs by the opposition that either carried just over their heads or were blown back to clip the baseline, depending on which direction they were playing — kept it from being a flawless day. “We have to keep working harder,” Dickison said. “Neither one of us played doubles this year, so we’re still getting used to playing with each other again. But we complement each other really well. We just have to get more comfortable and more confident.” Brumbaugh, on the other hand, did have a flawless day at Troy Community Park. The sophomore who reached the state quarterfinals as a freshman last year made incredibly short work of his first day. Brumbaugh beat Northridge’s Terrill Stevens 6-0, 6-0 to open the day, knocked off Northwestern’s Brett Siemon 6-0, 6-0 and finished up by blanking Greenon’s Dale Pensworth 6-0, 6-0 to advance to the semifinals. And while he said there’s a little more pressure after his accomplishments last year, Brumbaugh also isn’t letting it affect him. “I haven’t really thought about it, I guess,” he said. “Last year, there weren’t really any expectations about how far I’d get. This year, though, I want to improve on that. “It’s been different. Nobody knows who you are when you’re a freshman. As a sophomore, it’s definitely been different.”

Milton-Union’s Mitch Gooslin returns the ball Tuesday during the Division II sectional tournament at Troy Community Park. Still, Brumbaugh — who has only lost once this season — was glad to take care of business so quickly Tuesday. “It feels good. I’m trying to stay out of the closer matches in the early rounds,” he said. “The semis and finals will be tough. There’s some tough players in this sectional.” Teammate Mitch Gooslin, one of many Bulldogs who have spent time this season hurt, struggled in his secondround match. After knocking off Cedarville’s Jared Gillespie 6-2, 6-4 to start the day, Gooslin got caught in a long match with Brookville’s Cory Limbert, falling in three sets 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 to No. 3 Kenton Ridge. And in a preliminary match, Luke Ferguson was eliminated by Cedarville’s Tim Marvin 6-0, 6-0. The Bulldogs’ doubles team of Craig Hollis and Kole Wallace saw the injury bug end its season early, too. After the duo beat Northwestern 6-2, 6-3, they found themselves in a three-set match after splitting the first two sets 2-6, 62, and the score was 1-0 in the third before they were forced to retire. “It’s been hard this season,” Milton-Union coach Roger Davidson said. “We lost a member of the first doubles team the first week of the season, gone for the year. That same day we lost second doubles, he had been back for three days and reaggravated it. He comes back again, and Kenton gets hurt. Today was his first day back after two weeks, and then we have another one today. “It’s been tough pulling everyone together. But they’ve kept a good spirit about it. I know they all wanted more this season,

■ CONTINUED FROM 13 good things we can take from this.” The Devils host No. 8 Urbana Thursday in the second round. Ben Logan 14, M-U 4 BELLEFONTAINE — No. 10 Milton-Union’s season came to an end in the first round of the Division II sectional tournament in a 14-4 loss Tuesday at No. 7 Ben Logan. The Raiders advance to face No. 4 Greenville in the second round. Division IV Sectional TC 3, MV 2 TROY — Mississinawa Valley may have thought it took control of the game in the top of the sixth. But Troy Christian wasn’t about to let this one slip away. The Eagles got a tworun single from Garrett Hancock in the bottom of the sixth and went on to win 3-2 behind a complete game three-hitter from pitcher Ben Morrow. Troy Christian advances to face top-seeded Arcanum Wednesday in the second round of Division IV sectional play. “It’s great for our seniors, Nathan Kirkpatrick, Ben Morrow and Alec Patterson to walk off our field as winners,” Troy Christian coach Bill Campbell said. Alec Patterson doubled for Troy Christian in the win. Bethel 4,

never really let the Knicks challenge them in the second half. They can wrap up the series Thursday night in New York. Desperate New York tried everything to change the script. Nothing worked. Kenyon Martin played 29 minutes and J.R. Smith logged 31 despite missing practice Sunday and Monday because they were ill. Guard Iman Shumpert started even with a sore and swollen left knee that had the Knicks so worried they brought an orthopedic doctor to Indy to examine it Tuesday. The doctor determined there was no structural damage.

Mechanicsburg 2 BRANDT — Bethel defeated Mechanicsburg 42 behind the pitching of Luke Veldman and some timely hitting by Jordan Elam Monday night in the first round of the Division IV sectional tournament. Veldman fanned eight and allowed one earned run. Elam finished the game 2 for 3 with a pair of RBIs in the sixth. “Luke pitched a great game and we played great ‘D’ behind him,” Bethel coach Brett Brookhart said. “We executed well, and Jordan had couple big RBIs.” The fifth-seeded Bees travel to play No. 3 Riverside Wednesday in the second round. Covington 11, Houston 1 COVINGTON — Covington opened tournament play with an 11-1 run-rule victory over Houston on Monday, but it wasn’t the type of performance to satisfy Mitch Hirsch. “We won, which is good, but we came out flat and weren’t into it at all,” Hirsch said. “I had to get on them in the bottom of the third.” Covington advances to play at Russia on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. in a rematch from earlier in the year in which the Raiders came from behind to defeat the Buccs in the final at bat.

Lehman’s Riley Pickrel serves the ball Tuesday at Troy Community Park. but they understand.” “We’ve kind of gotten used to it — which I know is a terrible thing to say in sports,” Dickison said about all the injuries. “This is only my second day back on the court. “This is the time of year when not working hard at the beginning of the year can come back to bite you. We’ve just got to remember what we’re playing for.” In the other half of the doubles bracket, Lehman’s top-seeded team of Pierce Bennett and Mitchell Shroyer cruised into Saturday’s semifinal round, defeating Yellow Springs 60, 6-1 and Greenon 6-0, 6-0 to advance. They will face the No. 4-seeded Northwestern team on Saturday, while Dickison and Blevins will face

Kenton Ridge’s No. 3 seed. Lehman’s doubles team of Noah Dunn and Sam Dean defeated Brookville 60, 6-2 but fell in a third-set tiebreaker to Kenton Ridge, 6-0, 1-6, 7-6 (6). And in singles play, Louis Gaier defeated Morthridge’s Ben Montez 60, 6-0 in the first round and lost to Cedarville’s Marvin 6-3, 7-5 in the quarters. Riley Pickrel also won in the first round, beating Northridge’s Colman Jepson 6-1, 6-0 in a prelim match, only to fall to Northeastern’s Andrew Williams 6-1, 6-2. And Connor Thobe dropped a prelim match to Catholic Central’s Pat McCombs 6-1, 1-6, 6-2. The semifinals kick off Saturday at 9 a.m. at Troy Community Park.

■ CONTINUED FROM 13 our lead-up to the preseason will be like,” Campbell said. “We see so much potential in these girls that will return, and I’m very excited to see them grow as players.” Division III Sectional Milton-Union 10, Dixie 1 WEST MILTON — One home run, two doubles and eight RBIs. And all that production came from just one bat. Milton-Union’s Ashley Smith had a monster game at the plate and her teammates followed her lead in a 10-1 victory over Dixie to open Division III sectional play Monday night in West Milton. Eight RBIs Ashley Smith had two doubles and a homer, Jesse Bowman went 2 for 4 with a double, Christine Heisey was 3 for 4, Claire Fetters had a double. Chloe Smith was the winning pitcher.

Bethel travels to TriVillage for the first round of the Division IV sectional tournament Thursday.
