TSF the talk of council Festival receives rave reviews from city officials BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer nknoth@tdnpublishing.com

As expected, the Strawberry Festival was a hot topic of discussion at Monday’s Troy City Council meeting, though a discussion was not slated on the agenda. Councilman John Schweser, whose wife Corie was the festival general chairperson, admitted

that he had a change of heart this weekend regarding the downtown location. “As many of you know, I was very opposed to having it downtown and wanted it on the fairgrounds,” Schweser said. “But I have to tell you, it was absolutely seamless … I’m all for it. I like the

festival downtown.” Corie Schweser spoke at the end of the meeting, thanking the city of Troy and all participants for their help in arranging the Strawberry Festival, which was held downtown for the first time due to the Adams Street bridge construction. “I thought it only appropriate that I thank the city of Troy,” Schweser said, adding that she felt

humbled by the overwhelming success of the non-profits’ fundraising efforts. Mayor Michael Beamish thanked the city staff, Strawberry Festival Committee and volunteers for their work in the festivities. He particularly applauded the city for its fast cleanup of the downtown area. “I don’t know if you’ve driven down Main Street today, but you

Hydrants to be flushed The Troy Fire Department has began flushing fire hydrants in the water plant area and going east on State Route 55. They will then head into the Heritage Hills, Skylark and Stonyridge areas. Residents in the area may see a slight discoloration of their tap water at this time, however, the water is safe to drink. Residents may want to refrain from laundry at this time as it could cause discoloration to clothing.

City has lost $975,000 in state funding BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer nknoth@tdnpublishing.com

OCM PHOTO/MIKE ULLERY

Emergency personnel carry a crash victim to a CareFlight helicopter on Peterson Road Monday afternoon. The victim was the lone occupant of a car traveling west in the 2800 block of Peterson Road when the vehicle left the roadway, striking a utility pole.

Man fair following crash Remains in Miami Valley Hospital BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer myingst@tdnpublishing.com Devan Powell, 20, of New Carlisle, is listed in fair condition at Miami Valley Hospital after being transported by CareFlight Monday after his vehicle struck a utility pole in the 2800 block of Peterson Road, near Fletcher, Monday.

FLETCHER

Powell, the driver of the 2004 Dodge Stratus, was the only person in the vehicle at the time of the accident, which was reported at approximately 1 p.m. According to reports, Powell was traveling eastbound at approximately 55 miles per hour on Peterson Road when it veered off the right side of the roadway striking the utility pole, snapping it in half.

Powell was unconscious at the scene before being transported to Miami Valley Hospital by CareFlight. The accident remains under investigation, but officials believe the 20 year-old may have had a seizure prior to the accident. Hospital officials said Powell is expected to be transferred out of intensive care Tuesday.

Council members met in city hall Tuesday to discuss the city of Troy’s budget in the face of significant state cuts and other financial hardships. Mayor Michael Beamish, director of public service and safety Patrick Titterington, council president Marty Baker and auditor John Stickel gave a presentation outlining the realities of Troy’s budget. The difference between forecasted revenue and needed revenue is estimated at $4 million for 2013. The city has lost $975,000 from the state of Ohio, on top of lost revenue from wage inflation, health care premium increases and an investment decline of 74.5 percent, along with other financial challenges. To be in a comfortable position in future years, Troy needs to close the budget gap by at least half, equaling $2 million. Two choices remain, Titterington said — find a new revenue stream or make changes that potentially diminish the quality of life for Troy residents.

Covington hires new administrator BY TOM MILLHOUSE Ohio Community Media tmillhouse@dailycall.com

COVINGTON

Members of Covington Village Council made history Monday night by hiring Mike Busse as the community’s first-ever village administrator. Busse, 47, currently serves as village administrator in nearby Russia. He was selected from a field of 31 applicants. A Ft. Loramie native, Busse has worked for Russia for the past 11 years, the last three years as administrator. He also serves as Russia police BUSSE chief and head of the utility operations. “I am just thrilled to have someone with Mike’s experience,” said Covington Mayor Ed McCord. “He has experience in all

the areas we were looking for,” McCord said, noting Busse has “hands-on” experience in village operations as well as supervisory experience. Village council has been interviewing applicants for several weeks after making a decision several months ago that the village government has grown to the point where a full-time administrator was needed. “The mayor and council members are part-time. For the village to operate efficiently, we need day-to-day supervision,” McCord said. Contacted Tuesday, Busse said he is looking forward to his new position.

“I am excited about working in Covington. It seems to be a great community,” Busse said. “I’m looking forward to getting started and meeting the people.” With experience in utility operation, Busse said he will be working on assessments of the village water and sewer systems. “Most of the utilities are underground, so nobody sees and or thinks about them,” Busse said, adding that it is critical that a community make plans for the sustainability of its utilities. Busse also plans to work on an economic development plan for the village. Busse’s first day on the job will be July 9. His salary was set at $69,000. He and his wife, Beckie, have two grown children and live in Russia. Prior to working for the village of Russia, Busse served as security operations manager for Crown Equipment in New

Bremen. In other action taken at Monday night’s meeting, council approved an insurance settlement of $86,000 for hail damage sustained during a storm a year ago. Council also approved payment of $16,000 to JOS Contracting (John Schilling) of Covington for handling the claim. McCord said the payment will come from insurance monies, not from village funds. Council also approved a property maintenance ordinance dealing with property owners who don’t mow their lawns. The ordinance provides for assessments to cover the cost of village employees mowing lawns that have tall grass. It was noted during the meeting last month that the problem primarily involves foreclosed homes now owned by banks. Council decided to move the second meeting in July from July 16 to July 23.

Festival • CONTINUED FROM 1 “There were no trips, no falls and one of the few medic calls we had was for chest pains, and came at noon on Saturday,” Long said. Long also said the mild temperatures helped provide relief for all that visited or worked downtown. “It was a very nice weekend,” Long said. “If it was the weekend before, it could have been very different.” Long also said there was only one lost child report during the festival, which was resolved in less than five minutes on Saturday. Long said a typical day for missing children at the levee site during the festival is more than five reports a day. Long said if the festival was to continue to be held downtown, festival and city officials would have to investigate hosting a parade carefully. “If the festival was to stay downtown and people still wanted to have a

parade, more planning and thought would have to occur between the city and the festival committee,” Long said. The Ohio Department of Transportation is the govauthority on erning whether or not state routes and throughways can be closed off for events such as the Strawberry Festival. In terms of traffic issues and parking, the only accident involving a collision was more than two hours after the festival site had closed. “The traffic issues were what we were worried about,” Long said. “It went better than we had expected especially on the Square. It was running fairly smoothly.” Congestion mainly was contained to the Water Street and Market Street intersection, but Long said it wasn’t anything close to what the police department had anticipated. Long said there were a few minor issues prior to the festival, including a res-

ident of Monroe Street moving barricades illegally to gain access to her home on Thursday morning. According to Long, only one issue was in regards to unauthorized people in a vendor’s tent, although Long said that report was still under investigation. Only three cars were towed from the festival site throughout the entire weekend and Long said he would not have exact numbers of parking tickets issued until Friday. Long said tear-down of the downtown festival site also was quick and took less than two hours to open traffic up to the public after the festival closed Sunday at 6 p.m. “It was much easier to get the vendors off the streets this year,” Long said. In regards to downtown residents being affected by foot traffic, Long said “I’ve not heard a complaint from anybody.” Long said he has heard nothing but positive remarks considering the downtown location. According to Long, the Troy Police Department had 13 officers at the downtown festival site, four officers on quads north of the festival site with a total of at least 17 officers working the festival throughout the weekend at any time. “It was a long weekend for us,” Long said. “I talked to a number of people from out of state who treat this weekend much like a vacation so people still came despite the change in location.”

wouldn’t know there was a festival here yesterday,” he said. After giving a presentation on new Troy Main Street initiatives, executive director Karin Manovich fielded questions about downtown businesses’ reactions to the downtown location. Manovich said many business owners were thrilled to have the festival downtown and would like to have it permanently moved. She will be conducting a survey of local businesses to gauge their views on having it downtown. Near the end of the meeting, director of public service and safety Patrick Titterington reminded attendees that a “riveting,” “exciting” and “dynamic” event would be taking place soon. “I’m not talking about the Strawberry Festival — I’m talking about our workshop tomorrow night,” Titterington said of the revenue discussion that was held the following day at 4 p.m. in the basement of city hall.

In scheduled council business: • Council agreed to have a fourth reading of the street lighting assessment resolution, in which the city would charge $42.12 per year per parcel, which equals $3.51 a month, for the lighting of city streets, alleys and other public places. • The allocation of $84,000 in CDBG Formula Grant Funds for fiscal year 2012-13 was OK’d by council. Benefiting from the funds are the Fair Housing Program, program administration, Buckeye House improvements and Lincoln Community Center improvements. • The rezoning of three lots on West Stanfield Road from light industrial businesses to general businesses was approved. The ordinance had been amended to exclude a fourth lot at the request of its owner, Legacy Medical Equipment. • Council also adopted an ordinance for selling two surplus city items, a Jeep Cherokee and Progressive mower.

Theft • CONTINUED FROM 1 and full restitution will be sought. Woodward also has been released from her volunteer position at the market. “We want our vendors and patrons to know that this year’s market will be better than ever,” Scenna said. Committee member

Greg Enslen added that “the market is revisiting all procedures related to the handling of funds to ensure appropriate oversight.” The market is moving from Third Street to Fourth Street, and will open Saturday with a record number of vendors.

More comments and questions about taxes owed by Council President John Kessler were raised at Monday’s Tipp City Council meeting. Scott Brownlee and Mike Woody, who have spoken out at previous meetings, returned Monday to ask why council has not taken action on their requests. “I would like to ask members of council why you feel a tax issue should not be investigated and why it should be swept under the carpet and forgotten about?” Woody said. At earlier meetings, Brownlee drew attention to Kessler’s owed taxes and called for an investigation under chapter 4.10 of the city charter. Woody, a former employee of Kessler’s publication, has said that he is owed six months’ pay. “I want to know how Mr. Kessler can owe the city, the state, the feds, lots of money and he sits on council and passes laws that tax me. I want you all to get backbones and tell me how that happens,” said Brownlee.

TIPP CITY about the issue, saying at the last meeting that he had been advised not to talk about it, though he did say at the April 16 meeting that he owes the city nothing and that “those taxes are paid.” Councilman Pat Hale also responded to Brownlee saying that he did not believe that there is any collusion or conspiracy happening in the tax department. Councilman Joe Gibson, who announced at the last council meeting his support of an investigation, repeated his intention to place an item on the next agenda concerning the issue. “If there is a question of whether or not the city is doing its job to the best of its ability to do so, then I think it is certainly within our rights as a council, it’s within our duty and our obligation, to either investigate or at least to look into the issue,” Gibson said. At the last council meeting, Councilman Joe Gibson called for a formal investigation into the issue, citing Chapter 4.10 of the Tipp City Charter as a basis for investigation. According to Law Director David Caldwell, Chapter 4.10 does not authorize an investigation on an individual member of council, but does permit the investigation of an entire department. “In terms of our ability or our authority to do so, I believe chapter 4.10 of the charter is very clear. It specifically allows for council to conduct investigations on matters of city business, whether that is an individual council member or whether it’s the performance of a department,” Gibson said. Councilman Mike

McDermott restated his opinion that an investigation into the private business of a council member isn’t within the rights of the council, saying that such an investigation shouldn’t be carried out in the legislative field but in the judicial field. “If we’re going to be doing an investigation on anyone, whether it be a council member or a resident, we need to make sure we have laws to back up what we are doing. We currently do not have that,” he said. “This is something that is a private issue, it’s a tax issue. And I don’t believe that any of the residents of Tipp City would appreciate the council being given such broad authority with which to investigate their private tax issues.” Other members of council also weighed in on the issue. Councilwoman Katelyn Black said she thought that it was just an investigation of the tax department, not an individual. “I’m not saying that we should audit any personal council member, but I think that it is important for the city of Tipp City to be auditing themselves and us auditing our tax department might be something crucial,” Black said. Hale echoed Caldwell’s comments that nothing in the charter allows for personal investigations, but said that he would be willing to discuss investigating the tax department. “I’m all in favor of having that discussion; I don’t have any problem with it whatsoever. But as far as specifically singling out any particular citizen of our community or council member, that is not allowed within our own ordinances. I think that’s pretty black and white,” Hale said.

Report of first doctor to reach shot Lincoln found SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — The first doctor to reach President Abraham Lincoln after he was shot in a Washington theater rushed to the presidential box and found him paralyzed, comatose and leaning against his wife. Dr. Charles Leale ordered brandy and water to be brought immediately. Leale’s long-lost report of his efforts to help the mortally wounded president, written just hours after his death, was discovered in a box at the National Archives late last month. The doctor, who sat 40 feet from Lincoln at Ford’s Theater that night in April 1865, saw John Wilkes Booth jump to the stage, brandishing a dagger, and heard the cry that the “President has been murdered” before pushing his way through the crowd. Thinking Lincoln had been stabbed, Leale ordered men to cut off the president’s coat. “I commenced to examine his head (as no wound near the shoulder was found) and soon passed my fingers over a large firm clot of blood situated about one inch below the superior curved line of the occipital bone,” Leale reported. “The coagula I easily removed and passed the little finger of my left hand

A researcher for the Papers of Abraham Lincoln, Helena Iles Papaioannou, found it among correspondence of the U.S. surgeon general

from April 1865, filed under “L” for Leale. “What’s fascinating about this report is its immediacy and its clinical, just-the-facts approach,” said Daniel Stowell, director of the Papers of Abraham Lincoln. “There’s not a lot of flowery language, not a lot of emotion.” Physicians have long debated whether Lincoln could have lived with modern medicine. Trauma

treatment was virtually unknown in 1865, and Leale’s report illustrates “the helplessness of the doctors,” Stowell said. “He doesn’t say that but you can feel it.” Leale wrote a report for an 1867 congressional committee investigating the assassination that referenced the earlier account, but no one had ever seen it, said Stowell, whose group’s goal is to find every document written by or to Abraham Lincoln during his lifetime. At least four researchers have been painstakingly scouring boxes of documents at the National Archives for more than six years. They methodically pull boxes of paper there are millions of

She was assigned the surgeon general’s documents and was leafing through letters pitching inventions for better ambulances and advice about feeding soldiers onions to ward off disease when she hit Leale’s report. “I knew it was interesting. What we didn’t know was this was novel,” Papaioannou said. “We didn’t know that this was new,

that this was an 1865 report and that it likely hadn’t been seen before.” Leale, a 23-year-old Army surgeon just six weeks into his medical practice, never spoke or wrote about his experiences again until 1909 in a speech commemorating the centennial of Lincoln’s birth. The Papers of Abraham Lincoln, administered by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, has found and is digitizing 90,000 documents, Stowell said.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle on U.S. education: America has tried everything to improve its educational system, and has failed. Everything. Except what works best. We have thrown money at the problem, to no avail. Our education spending is among the highest in the world, but test scores still lag behind other industrialized nations. Says the University of Southern California: “The U.S. is the clear leader in total annual spending, but ranks ninth in science performance and 10th in math.” We’ve also tried leveling the full weight and strength of the leviathan United States bureaucracy against the problem: The No Child Left Behind Act — this nation’s most sweeping education reform in several generations — has been an unprecedented reach of the federal government down into local schools.

So, how’s the job market for the student population? It depends. If you’re a white teen 16 to 19 years old, the April unemployment rate for your age group was 22.8 percent, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. If you’re a black teen of the same age bracket, the ranks of the unemployed swell to a rate of 38.2 percent. That’s the economic impact of uncertainties out of Washington, D.C., directed by the political class who are pressing businesses on every side with regulation, looming mandatory health care, tax increases that are proposed at year’s end, and non-existent lines of credit that are the lifeblood of small businesses. The consequences of reckless policy and meddling are evident yet again. The months of discontent are no longer just for a season, but now years. Will the summer of our discontent yield progress in November?

Troy Strawberry Festival was a complete success I have a confession. I am guilty, ashamed and a little bit embarrassed to admit that I was a “Negative Nancy” on a recent issue that involved Troy City Council and the Troy Area Chamber of Commerce. Back at the beginning of the year, council was faced with a decision of where to have the annual Troy Strawberry Festival because of the Adams Street Bridge being closed. Well, as the options were posed, I thought the fairgrounds was a much more logical decision. I thought the change in location would shut our town down to have it downtown. “That’s just silly,” I thought. I was one of those that griped about the traffic, the lack of parking and the congestion. Now, I realize it would have been silly to have it anywhere else. Having it downtown was the best decision everyone involved could have made. It made our town come alive, it rejuvenated us and it made us realize how important it is to get people downtown. In my opinion, not only did it feel more roomy and calm, but it felt bigger and more involved. It felt like it was destined to be downtown. It gave business to our local downtown establishments

Katie Yantis Troy Daily News Columnist and kept everyone extremely busy. From the stories I have heard, vendors sold out of product the first day and scrambled to get more for the rest of the weekend. As the weekend continued I kept hearing more and more success stories, like those of people who are handicapped. Numerous times did I and other people downtown hear stories of how those in wheelchairs and those who cannot walk well were pleased with it being downtown because they were able to attend, whereas they were not when it is on the levee. The air was filled with excitement and movement, and from what I hear, there were more people than ever that attended our festival this year. Yes, I called it “our” festival because that is what it is. It is all of ours. It’s the city’s

festival to help those in the city. Yes, the big worry was the traffic, but it was great. The traffic was not an issue, the parking was not an issue and the flow was directed incredibly well. I applaud our officers, security staff and all involved on the committee for a terrific job of making this festival flawless despite all the apprehension preceding it. All of you believed in yourselves, the town and the charm of our city to make it successful — and it was beyond measurably successful. Please pat yourselves on your backs, because it was great. After saying I was going to participate in nothing as a way of illustrating my frustration, I walked around town twice. I couldn’t NOT be a part of such a great event. I walked around, talked with folks and witnessed some really great vendors with top-notch crafts. Some folks around me probably would have even guessed I wasn’t a local resident and instead a tourist as I took a picture with a friend in front of our famous pink fountain in the middle of the square and took pictures of the crowd. And once again, I ran the 10K classic. Last year was my first 10K

during the Strawberry Festival. I set out this year to just beat my time last year and prove to myself that I am slowly improving on my physical fitness. I did just that. I ran alongside my running buddy Tiffany, but I also had fellow Team (G)racers running with me as well as my UAR folk! Everyone did such a fantastic job and I can’t express enough how awesome it was to be a part of it. We ran past Duke Park and once again I was floored with the amazing feeling I had as the road ahead of me and behind me was filled with runners. Tiff and I just did our best; we kept ourselves at a comfortable pace for the first half then picked it up the second. We ran into the stadium and kicked it up another notch. I crossed the finish line at 58:35 when I didn’t cross the line last year until 1:01:53. I would say a three minute improvement is good in my book. Once again I applaud everyone. It was so great having downtown busy. I promise I won’t be a “Negative Nancy” if we did it there again next year. (Hint Hint.) Katie Yantis’ column appears every Wednesday in the Troy Daily News.

OBITUARIES

MARY SUZANNE ‘SUE’ CARLSON

JAMES ‘JIM’ J. LAYMAN SIDNEY — James “Jim” J. Layman of Sidney, formerly of Piqua, died Thursday, May 31, 2012, at the VA Medical Center in Dayton. He was born May 20, 1938, to J. Edward Layman and M. Rita Francis Layman in Piqua. He was married to Veronica Ann Owens on Nov. 10, 1989; and she survives. Jim also is survived by a son, James J. Layman Jr. of Covington; a granddaughter, Kyle Layman, and a great-granddaughter of Troy; a step daughter, Belinda Conners; and a step

granddaughter, Jennifer Johnson of Sidney; two sisters, Mrs. Richard (Nancy) Schnippel of Union, Ohio, and Mrs. Kenneth (Sandy) Dowty of Troy. Jim attended Piqua schools. In 1961, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and served until 1964. Before his retirement due to his health, he worked for Wagner Heating and Plumbing in Troy. Arrangements were handled by Cromes Funeral Home, Sidney. Condolences may be expressed to the family at www.cromesfuneralhome.com.

Stabbing suspect arraigned BY WILL E SANDERS Ohio Community Media wsanders@dailycall.com The alleged assailant in a Saturday night knife assault at a Piqua bar faced a judge at his arraignment Monday, but police remain unclear regarding what caused the argument that led to the attacker stabbing another man in the throat. The suspect, Jeffrey S. Joyner, 48, of Sidney, was taken into custody by Piqua police officers Saturday after responding to the Piqua Sports Grille, 1254 E. Ash St., on the report of a violent attack involving a knife. Joyner was charged and

TROY subsequently arraigned in Miami County Municipal Court on Monday on one count of felonious assault, a second-degree felony that carries a possible prison sentence of between two to eight years in prison. His bond was set at $100,000. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled in the case for June 13. The victim, Josh Allen, 28, of Piqua, sustained a serious wound to the neck during the assault but has since been released from the Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton following surgery.

When officers arrived at the scene they found Allen profusely bleeding from the neck and learned that Joyner allegedly stabbed the victim in the neck with a pocket knife following an argument at the bar, according to the Piqua Police Department. At this point investigators are still uncertain what caused the argument that resulted in the knife assault, but authorites said “these guys were not getting along in the bar for some reason.” “At this point we do not know,” said Piqua police Deputy Chief Tom Steiner. “We will be talking to more people later on this week.”

Piqua man injured in crash Staff report A Piqua man involved in a roll-over car crash on Washington Road early Monday morning was transported to the Upper Valley Medical Center. The driver, identified by sheriff ’s deputies as Elijah J. Pack, 22, was later released from the UVMC later in the day Monday, a hospital spokesperson said. Pack was traveling southbound on

Washington Road at approximately 4 a.m. south of Piqua when Pack lost control, left the roadway, went airborne and flipped his vehicle on to its top, authorities said. Pack, who was wearing his seatbelt, was initially transported by medics to the hospital for a possible back and neck injury. Deputies continue to investigate the crash.

Inmate gets 2-week reprieve COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Republican Gov. John Kasich on Tuesday issued a rare last-minute reprieve for a condemned killer, sparing Abdul Awkal for two weeks to allow a judge to hold a hearing on his mental competency. Kasich ordered the delay to allow a Cuyahoga County judge to conduct a hearing on whether Awkal is too mentally ill to be put to death. Judge Stuart Friedman ruled Monday there was evidence to believe Awkal was not competent to be executed, but his ruling was not enough to stop the execution. Kasich’s decision came shortly after the Ohio Supreme Court had refused to delay the execu-

tion to allow the hearing. Governors in Ohio have the ultimate say on executions. Former death row inmate John Spirko received reprieves from two governors before he was spared, but such interventions by governors have been infrequent since Ohio resumed executions in 1999. Awkal was sentenced to death for killing his estranged wife, Latife Awkal, and brother-in-law Mahmoud Abdul-Aziz in January 1992 in a room where the Awkals were to take up divorce and custody issues. In the months before the shooting, Awkal bought a pistol and threatened to kill his wife and her family

if they didn’t dismiss the divorce proceedings. Prosecutors said Awkal also changed his address and wrote his brother a check for most of his assets before heading to court on the day of the shooting. Awkal was in the state death house at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville when the decision was announced. He arrived at Lucasville earlier Tuesday and had been in good spirits during his stay. If put to death this month, Abdul Awkal would be the second man Ohio executes this year since the end of an unofficial moratorium on capital punishment that lasted six months.

JUNE CURTIS PIQUA — June Curtis, 83, of Piqua, died at 7:45 p.m. Monday, June 4, 2012, at the Upper Valley Medical Center, Troy. She was born June 5, 1928, in Pleasant Hill, to the late Roy and Meda (Wallace) Curtis.

She was preceded in 2287657

Titterington said cutting services could “cause irreversible damage … changing Troy’s culture, perception and reputation.” He added that he understands the resentment some citizens feel for the street light assessment and other possible future costs, but that the city has already exhausted other options. “Their anger should at least be equally directed at the statehouse,” Titterington said. A brainstorming session followed the presentation, in which council members offered solutions to Troy’s budget challenges. City of Troy administrator Sue Knight wrote down the ideas, which council members then voted upon. The no. 1 choice with nine votes was income tax credit reduction, followed by a police/fire levy with eight votes. Tying with six votes each were an income tax increase, health district property tax and street light assessment. Three of the five issues would be voted upon by citizens, councilman Tom Kendall noted. Income tax credit reduction would be a non-ballot issue brought to council through legislation, and street

light assessment legislation had its fourth reading at council Monday. Council member Robin Oda voiced her reluctance to saddle more of the financial burden on citizens, while also acknowledging that Troy has tough decisions to make. “I want to see us live within our means,” she said. “I’m just telling you that if I feel this way, other people feel this way too.” Councilman Alan Clark said that as a longtime Troy resident, former city worker and council member for 10 years, he has never seen the Troy budget as stripped down as it is now. “I can say we are truly bare bones,” Clark said. “We give a high level of services to the community, and I don’t know how much more we can cut. We are not frivolous, not by any stretch of the imagination.” Beamish reminded council members that “Troy is Troy for a reason.” “We are held in high regard in the area for quality of life,” Beamish said. “This has been frustrating for us, too. We sit around the table and talk about how we can keep our heads above the water without cutting services.”

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Paternity test should put ‘Alice’ in her place Dear Annie: My brother-in-law and his wife are strange people. "Tom and Alice" live beyond their means and are constantly asking for help. We've given them more than $10,000, and they've never paid back a dime. That's not the worst part. Alice is in love with my husband, "Dean." She giggles and flirts with him and used to send him scantily clad pictures of herself. This made us both horribly uncomfortable. I trust Dean. He would leave the phone on speaker when she'd call. And in order to avoid any hint of impropriety, Dean changed his phone number and email address and got off of all social networks. He now can only be reached through the office. Alice doesn't work and aspires to be on a reality show for rich wives. When she got pregnant four years ago, she told me that Dean should be in the delivery room because "it's his baby." This can't possibly be true. Dean had a vasectomy years ago, and more importantly, we were out of the country when Alice conceived. His father, stepmother and sisters believe her, and she even called our daughter at college to say she has a half-sister. We recently received a petition for child support. My brother-in-law shrugs off his wife's behavior, saying Alice has inadequate boundaries. He says he knows the child isn't my husband's, but "a little extra cash couldn't hurt" because he is out of work. Dean and I spoke to a lawyer. The only reason we stay in touch with his family is because my mother-in-law, a wonderful woman, is battling breast cancer and relies on Alice (who yells at her) for rides to the doctor. My husband is worried that if we take legal action against Alice, his mother will suffer the consequences. I don't know how I ended up in an episode of Jerry Springer. Any ideas? — Beside Myself in Jersey Dear Beside: The first thing you should do is get a paternity test so you have legal proof that Dean is not the father of this child. Then talk to as many family members as you can and urge them to convince Alice to get professional help. This woman has serious mental health issues, and her mercenary husband exploits her. Try to arrange other transportation for your mother-in-law so you are not held hostage to her situation, and then do what you must to protect your own family. Dear Annie: For the third time, my daughter has called to verbally abuse me. The first time, I refused to listen, and she withheld her children from us. We had helped raise our oldest grandchild, and she kept him away for a year. The second time she pulled this stunt, she showed up two years later in need of financial help. She also had a new baby we'd never seen. We forgave her. She is now practicing this vicious tactic for the third time. We have decided we are too old to deal with this. We've redone our will. Our son will inherit the bulk of the estate, and our daughter will be given a pittance so she cannot claim we've overlooked her. No one should have to take abuse in order to see their grandchildren. — Three Strikes You're Out in Pennsylvania Dear Three: We agree. But how heartbreaking for you. Our condolences. Dear Annie: Your response to "Ready To Settle Down" was excellent, but didn't go quite far enough. When I was newly divorced, someone gave me the best advice I've ever received. It has gotten me through some pretty rocky moments, and hopefully, it will inspire "Ready" to rethink her desire to be with the lazy creep now in her life. "The only thing worse than being alone is wishing you were." — Louisville, Ky. Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

SUDOKU PUZZLE

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

HINTS FROM HELOISE

Simple tip helps sprouts cook to the core Dear Heloise: To lessen the cooking time for Brussels sprouts, I slice an “X” into the root end of each sprout. As I do this, I give the knife a little twist. You can hear the leaves in the core tear apart just a bit. This gives the hard core of each sprout more exposure to the boiling water. — Dana F., Spokane, Wash. Dana, fresh brussels sprouts are tasty! This is the recommended way to prepare sprouts before cooking. Why? Because the leaves tend to cook faster. Cutting the core helps it cook more evenly

Hints from Heloise Columnist with the leaves, but don’t overcook sprouts! — Heloise TESTING BAKING POWDER Dear Readers: Baking powder usually lasts six months to a year after being opened. However, when in doubt about whether it is still

active, do this quick and easy test. Take 1 teaspoon of baking powder and place it in a cup of hot water. If the baking powder starts to bubble, you will know that it is still good to use! — Heloise SIFTING FLOUR Dear Heloise: I have been sifting a 5-pound bag of flour and returning it to a canister or the bag all at one time. This saves a step when baking. — Ellen in Florida Ellen, a great way to think ahead. However, most all-purpose flours manufactured today are sifted before pack-

aging. But once brought home, the flour may have condensed or settled, and if so, it will need to be sifted again. You have to read the recipe carefully, because if it says “1 cup sifted flour,” then the flour needs to be sifted before measuring. However, if the recipe says “1 cup flour, sifted,” then the flour is sifted after measuring. You sift flour to get out any lumps and aerate it. Aerating dry ingredients, like flour, helps them accept liquids more easily and evenly. — Heloise

HOROSCOPE Wednesday, June 6, 2012 In the year ahead, you’re likely to sharpen your skills and take a more active interest in a social activity, sport or hobby. This won’t be a frivolous pursuit, because there’s a good chance it will be linked in some manner to prosperity and/or popularity. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You should guard against an inclination to be too possessive or too demanding of your loved ones. This type of behavior usually has a tendency to push others away, instead of drawing them to you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Neither you nor your mate should make any major decision without first discussing it with the other. If either of you take action independently, it will only cause problems. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Someone you dislike for no particular reason doesn’t feel the same way about you. Instead of holding fast to this bias, give the person the benefit of the doubt and get to know him or her better. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — If you give in to urges to take a risk on an exciting someone, there’s a good chance you could back the wrong horse. It’s what’s deep within this person that really counts, and chances are it stinks. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — The possibilities for the kind of independent operation you like are very slim, mostly because you’re likely to allow others to make demands on your time. Try to make some time for yourself, as well. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Don’t permit a past infraction by another to totally distort your thinking about him or her. Be on guard, but allow this person a second chance, just in case it was one rare moment of indiscretion. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — A friend of yours who has yet to return something that he or she borrowed will put the bite on you for another loan. Before you accede, establish some strict ground rules. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Striving to make your mark in the world is admirable, but not if it’s done at the expense of others. Know the difference between climbing and clawing your way up to the top. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Be careful about offering any advice to others, even if asked. If what you say is misunderstood or misinterpreted, you could be blamed for the asking party’s failure. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — There is a negative situation that you’ve had ample opportunity to change but that you haven’t done anything about. Unfortunately, this opens the door for another to walk in and alter it to his or her liking. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — If an alliance that you established in the past didn’t work out, think twice before getting involved once again. Ask: was it the team or the objective that was at fault? TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Just because a co-worker isn’t in accord with your way of doing things doesn’t mean you can’t succeed. Don’t allow a disagreement between you to shut the production down.

the feeling of safety in this area of south Nashville,” Dean said. Metro Nashville Police Chief Steve Anderson said the gang has a pattern of criminal activity including vandalism, assaults, gun possession, burglaries, witness intimidation and threatening police officers. Officers on Tuesday were serving the individuals named in the lawsuit with summons to appear in court on June 29. Kurdish immigrants have sought refuge in Nashville since the 1970s, with estimates of about 10,000 members. More Kurds fleeing persecution in Iraq came to Nashville in the late ’90s. This isn’t the first time police have gone after the Kurdish Pride gang in Nashville. Two brothers, Ako Hassan Nejad and Aso Hassan Nejad, were convicted and sentenced to jail for conspiring to murder a drug dealer who they thought robbed them. The brothers are still serving prison sentences and are among the 24 people listed in the lawsuit. Saul Solomon, the director of the city’s legal department, said prosecutors will continue to seek criminal charges against gang members, but this was an additional tool to restrict criminal activity. Solomon said if the individuals listed in the lawsuit fail to show up in court, they could face contempt charges. A similar public nuisance law in California against gang members has been upheld by that state’s Supreme Court, Solomon said. If approved by the court, Anderson said any violations would be reported by police to the court, which would determine what action to take. Still, Anderson said since it was a new enforcement area, his department would proceed cautiously.

Public nuisance suit filed against Kurdish gang NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Nashville police say they have filed the state’s first public nuisance lawsuit against a street gang made up of Kurdish refugees. The lawsuit filed Tuesday names the Kurdish Pride Gang and 24 individuals accused of being members. It seeks to prohibit them from meeting anywhere within a 1.43-square-mile area south of downtown Nashville that includes city parks, an elementary school and neighborhoods. “This is the first time in the state of Tennessee that a local government has sought to have a street gang and a group of its alleged members declared a public nuisance,” said Mayor Karl Dean. The lawsuit is based on the addition of criminal gang activity to the state’s public nuisance law in 2009. Typically the public nuisance law has been used by cities and local governments to shut down businesses associated with crimes like prostitution and illegal alcohol sales or consumption. Dean and members of the city police department announced the lawsuit during a press conference at Paragon Mills Park, which is one of two city parks within the area that police want declared a “safe zone.” Police have said the gang’s use of public parks and parking lots of private businesses in the area have hurt the community. When police tried to install a camera to improve security at the park, the camera was cut down and the gang’s initials “KP” were still spray painted in the parking lot on Tuesday. “Based on investigations from our police department over the past several years, it is clear that illegal activities of the Kurdish Pride gang have significant detracted from the quality of life and

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Wednesday, June 6, the 158th day of 2012. There are 208 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 6, 1944, during World War II, Allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy, France, on “D-Day,” beginning the liberation of German-occupied western Europe. On this date: • In 1862, the (first) Battle of Memphis took place during the Civil War as Union naval forces annihilated a Confederate fleet and captured the Tennessee city. • In 1925, Walter Percy

Chrysler founded the Chrysler Corp. • In 1933, the first drive-in movie theater was opened by Richard Hollingshead in Camden County, N.J. (The movie shown was “Wives Beware,” starring Adolphe Menjou.) • In 1982, Israeli forces invaded Lebanon to drive Palestine Liberation Organization fighters out of the country. (The Israelis withdrew in June 1985.) • In 1985, authorities in Brazil exhumed a body later identified as the remains of Dr. Josef Mengele,

the notorious “Angel of Death” of the Nazi Holocaust. • Five years ago: Bob Barker taped his last episode of CBS’ “The Price Is Right.” • Today’s Birthdays: Singersongwriter Gary “U.S.” Bonds is 73. Actor Robert Englund is 65. Singer Dwight Twilley is 61. Comedian Sandra Bernhard is 57. International Tennis Hall of Famer Bjorn Borg is 56. Comedian Colin Quinn is 53. Rock musician Steve Vai is 52. Actor Jason Isaacs is 49. Actor Paul Giamatti is 45. TV correspondent Natalie Morales is 40.

Runner getting national attention

Meghan Vogel of West Liberty-Salem, right, helps Arden McMath of Arlington to the finish line after McMath collapsed yards short in the 3,200 meter finals of the Division III State track meet at Jesse Owens Stadium in Columbus.

BY LISA CORNWELL Associated Press A western Ohio high school runner who helped a struggling competitor finish their race is being praised for her sportsmanship and trying to cope with the attention it has sparked. Meghan Vogel appreciates the accolades but said Tuesday that she is a bit overwhelmed by the praise that has been pouring in since Saturday’s track meet in Columbus. The 17-year-old West LibertySalem High School junior was in last place in the 3,200-meter run as she caught up to Arlington

COLUMBUS High School sophomore Arden McMath, whose body was giving out. Instead of zipping past McMath to avoid the last-place finish, Vogel put McMath’s arm around her shoulders, half-dragging and half-carrying her about 30 meters to the finish line. Vogel, who pushed McMath over the line before crossing it, has been getting Facebook and Twitter messages and mail from friends and strangers saying she has inspired them with her sportsmanship.

Cincinnati Reds’ Joey Votto hits an RBI single in the first inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates Tuesday in Cincinnati.

Bucs bomb Reds Pittsburgh hits 3 homers in 8-4 win CINCINNATI (AP) — Clint Barmes had three hits and drove in three runs, and the Pittsburgh Pirates extended their home-run tear by hitting three more for an 8-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. Neil Walker hit a two-run homer, and Casey McGehee and Alex Presley had solo shots, giving the Pirates seven homers in their last two games. A.J. Burnett (5-2) won his fourth straight start, beating the Reds for the second time in a week. He gave up three runs while pitching into the sixth. Joey Votto singled home a run

in the ninth off Juan Cruz, but Joel Hanrahan came on with two runners aboard and fanned the three batters he faced for his 15th save in 16 chances. Pittsburgh scored six runs in only three innings off Homer Bailey (4-4), who had won his last three starts. It was his shortest outing of the season. The Pirates have won eight of their last 10 games overall, moving two games behind first-place Cincinnati in the NL Central. It’s the closest the Pirates have been to first place since April 11. The Pirates rank last in the league in batting average, runs and hits, but have shown a little

liveliness lately. They’ve scored at least six runs in four of their last eight games. They hit a season-high four homers for a 6-5 win in Milwaukee on Sunday, and followed that with three more on Tuesday. The Pirates tweaked their lineup before the game, calling up outfielder Alex Presley to bat leadoff. He tripled and homered off J.J. Hoover. Bailey was coming off one of his best performances in the majors, a four-hitter last Tuesday for an 8-1 win at Pittsburgh. It was his second career complete game, both of them coming at PNC Park.

Walks only 1 in 4-2 Indians win DETROIT (AP) — Ubaldo Jimenez pitched impressively into the seventh inning and the Cleveland Indians hit three runscoring triples off rookie Drew Smyly in a 4-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night. Jimenez (6-4) allowed a run and five hits in 6 2-3 innings, striking out four and walking only one. The right-hander entered the game with 42 walks in 56 innings this year. Three relievers finished for Cleveland. Chris Perez allowed a run in the ninth but held on for his 18th save in 19 chances. Asdrubal Cabrera, Lou Marson and Michael Brantley each hit RBI triples for Cleveland, which became the third team this season to hit three triples in a game. Smyly (2-2) allowed four runs and six hits in six innings. The Indians made two sparkling defensive plays with Detroit trying to rally in the

US Open stays true to its name By The Associated Press The U.S. Open prides itself on being the toughest test in golf. It never said anything about wanting to have the toughest field in golf, and we can only hope it doesn’t follow the British Open down that road. By staying true to its title “Open” the 36-hole qualifiers across the country delivered compelling stories of players who earned a spot in the U.S. Open. They were young and old, some with professional aspirations, others with only dreams, and one who can only get by riding in a cart. Casey Martin rode his way to a tie for 23rd at The Olympic Club in 1998, the only major he ever played.

He never imagined going back to the same course in San Francisco at age 40, now the golf coach at Oregon, his limp more severe but his resolve stronger. A former teammate of Tiger Woods at Stanford, he suffers from a rare circulatory disorder in his right leg that causes extreme pain and makes it virtually impossible for him to walk 18 holes. Martin had to prove that to the PGA Tour in a lawsuit, which the U.S. Supreme Court upheld. His single-rider cart caused a sensation at the U.S. Open, but it only took him so far. Martin earned his PGA Tour card a year later, though he stayed in the big leagues only one season. Six years ago, he gave up his tour career to become a golf

coach. In a race to finish because he was exhausted, Martin holed a 5-foot par putt on the final hole at Emerald Valley to earn the first of two spots from the Oregon qualifier. He turned with his hands on his hips and looked to the gathering storm clouds, amazed at what just happened. Woods was as amazed as anyone. He said Tuesday on Twitter, “Simply incredible. Ability, attitude and guts. See you at Olympic Casey.” Oregon reached the semifinals of the NCAA Championship last weekend at Riviera, and Martin had not played golf in nine days. He was not expecting to get through, so he booked a recruiting trip to North Carolina for next week. “This,” he told Golf

Channel with a grin, “is a little better.” The last U.S. Open champion who had to go through the 18-hole local qualifier and 36-hole sectional qualifier was Orville Moody in 1969. But that was a different era. Moody had lost in a playoff on the PGA Tour only two months earlier. Casey Martin isn’t going to win the U.S. Open. Neither is Dennis Miller, the 42-year-old teaching pro from Ohio who provided the “Caddyshack” moment of U.S. Open qualifying when his putt hung on the lip so long that he turned his back and never saw it fall in. Unlike the movie, at least the assistant head greens keeper didn’t blow up Scioto with plastic explosives trying to kill a gopher.

Kings 1 win away from championship EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) — Jonathan Quick remembers eating ice pops with his friends and watching their beloved New York Rangers win the Stanley Cup on television in 1994. Dustin Brown vaguely recalls Joe Nieuwendyk bringing the Cup to Ithaca, N.Y., but can’t remember if he got to see it up close. With just one more win by their Los Angeles Kings, the star goalie and the courageous captain will have the Stanley Cup in their hands, above their head even in the Pacific Ocean, if they choose. The stage is set for a California coronation in Game 4 on Wednesday night. The Kings could complete a sweep of the New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup finals in front of a sellout crowd that’s been waiting 45 years for this chance to celebrate. “It’s right there in front of us, but we know there’s one more step,” Brown said Tuesday at the Kings’ training complex. “We don’t want to trip now.” The eighth-seeded Kings are dominating the NHL playoffs with an ease that’s stranger than ice in sunny L.A. A franchise that has never done much of anything in the postseason has already conquered the Western Conference, and the Kings are one win away from claiming their first championship in almost impossibly stylish fashion. The Kings are on a 15-2 playoff run that has only one equal in NHL history, leaving everyone searching for superlatives to describe the way Los Angeles has steamrolled every opponent in its path by a combined 49-24 margin. Game 4 is even a chance

Can’t get too excited, look too far ahead. You have to stay in the moment and play the game.” The Kings appear to be neither overly excited nor overly defensive about the potential conclusion to this two-month playoff push. Los Angeles has been remarkably unaffected by any of its success after a rough regular season in which a playoff berth wasn’t secure until

just before the 81st game. They have a chance to match Edmonton’s NHLrecord 16-2 run through the 1988 playoffs in Game 4, but the Kings aren’t getting too high. “It doesn’t count any more than the rest of them did,” insisted Quick, who has allowed just 24 goals in 17 playoff games. “Obviously, we’re not going to start thinking about stuff that hasn’t happened yet.” The Kings started this run with two road victories over top-seeded Vancouver nearly two months ago, and they haven’t slowed down. Los Angeles eliminated the top three seeds in the West and eventually took a 3-0 lead in all four of its playoff series both unprecedented accomplishments in NHL history. Los Angeles is led by Brown, leading playoff scorer Anze Kopitar and Quick, the All-Star goalie and Conn Smythe Trophy favorite who has a .950 save percentage behind a shot-blocking defense that has allowed

just five power-play goals in 69 chances. The Kings have won four straight games and 12 of their last 13, never even trailing at any point in nine of their last 11 games including the entire Cup finals so far. The Devils have played the Kings tougher than any previous postseason opponent over a three-game stretch, but it hasn’t been enough. “I don’t think we believe we deserve to be in the hole we’re in,” Devils coach Peter DeBoer said. “I think we played better than the situation indicates, but that’s hockey. We have to persevere here, and stick with it and find a solution.” Los Angeles needed overtime goals to win the first two games in New Jersey, and the Devils had a golden opportunity to take their first lead of the finals during six power plays over the first two periods of Game 3, a disparity that even inspired Kings coach Darryl Sutter to do a bit of halfhearted sniping about the officiating.

Arlington student was being treated. McMath says her sodium levels apparently were low, but she has recovered. Vogel’s mother, Ann Vogel, is West LibertySalem’s track and field coach. Technically both runners should have been disqualified, but the official decided not to make that call, she said. Neither runner scored any points, so team standings weren’t affected. McMath finished 14th, and Vogel finished 15th. Ann Vogel said she’s very proud of her daughter, and the response has been amazing. “People were coming up to us in tears and hugging both of us after the race,” Ann Vogel said. She said she was surprised by some negative comments on the Internet and talk radio criticizing her daughter for a lack of competitiveness. “I can’t believe people would twist an act of kindness like that,” she said. The girls say they hope to stay in touch and expect the public attention to die down soon. “It’s been nice, but it also will be nice to get back to normal,” Meghan Vogel said.

McMath remembered feeling like she was “blacking in and out” and falling a few times before Vogel helped her. Vogel, who had won the 1,600-meter race earlier, said she was emotional and tired from that when she began the longer race. She also felt “a little woozy” afterward and found herself next to McMath in the training room, where the

OKC riding momentum shift OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Down and nearly out less than a week ago, the Oklahoma City Thunder are riding a momentum shift to the brink of the NBA finals. With three straight wins, the Thunder have changed the conversation from how anyone can stop the San Antonio Spurs’ record-setting 20-game winning streak to how Oklahoma City needs just one win on its home court in Game 6 on Wednesday night to play for the NBA title. Hundreds of fans waited in the middle of the night for the Thunder’s plane to land after Game 5, and thousands more will pack AP PHOTO Chesapeake Energy Arena Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant (35) shoots to cheer Oklahoma City on. over San Antonio Spurs’ Danny Green (4) and DeJuan Yet coach Scott Brooks Blair (45) duringGame 5 in the NBA Western urged Tuesday that riding the momentum isn’t enough Conference finals Monday in San Antonio.

to get the job done. “We have a great opportunity, we’re on our home floor but that doesn’t guarantee automatic victory,” Brooks said during a day off at the team’s practice facility. “They’re not going to give us the game. They’re not just going to say, ‘We’ve lost three in a row, we’re going to give in.’ We know we have a tough challenge ahead.” Brooks stood near the same spot just a week earlier, surprised when a reporter told him that only 6 percent of NBA teams over the years had overcome an 0-2 deficit in a seven-game series. Now, his Thunder could become only the 15th team to pull off the feat and the eighth since 2004. “The percentages, you can’t really feed into that because you know that

there’s always a chance,” Brooks said. “There’s 48 minutes to prove that you’re the better team that night, and we have an opportunity tomorrow night to do that again.” A series of defensive adjustments by Brooks helped turn the series, with 6-foot-7 Thabo Sefolosha switching onto All-Star point guard Tony Parker in Game 3 the most visible change. The Spurs have been tinkering ever since to get back in the groove they’d been riding since mid-April but instead have lost three straight games for the first time all season. Coach Gregg Popovich put sixth man Manu Ginobili in the starting lineup for Game 5, getting a playoff-best 34 points from the Argentine guard but disrupting the bench rota-

tion in the process. He has also gotten DeJuan Blair back in the mix after benching the former starter for the first part of the playoffs. “I think we have the right game plan,” Spurs AllStar Tim Duncan said. “We just need to play a little better for a little longer.” After being blown out by 20 in Game 3, the Spurs have lost the last two by a combined nine points and now must find a way to snap Oklahoma City’s seven-game home win streak. Celtics 94, Heat 90 MIAMI — The Boston Celtics rallied late in the third quarter in Miami Tuesday night and held off the Heat 94-90 to take a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. Game 6 is Thursday night.

Indians an RBI double to Miguel Cabrera in the first inning. Detroit did little offensively after that. Matt Young, a 29-year-old outfielder just up from the minors, struck out four times. The home crowd gave him a sarcastic cheer when he fouled off a two-strike pitch in the eighth, but he struck out swinging at the next one. Smyly struck out the first four hitters he faced, but Cabrera’s triple in the third tied the game and Marson’s triple in the fifth gave the Indians the lead. Choo drove Marson home with a single to make it 3-1. Brantley extended his hitting streak to 13 games with his triple in the sixth, which eluded a diving Boesch in right and brought home another run. The Indians improved to 5-12 when facing a left-handed starter.

■CONTINUED FROM 13 ninth. After a leadoff single by Delmon Young, Cabrera, the shortstop, barehanded Gerald Laird’s chopper and threw to second for a forceout. Jhonny Peralta followed with a double and Brennan Boesch hit a sacrifice fly, but Shin-soo Choo made a sliding catch in right field on Ramon Santiago’s shallow fly to end it. The Indians won for only the fourth time in their last 27 games at Comerica Park. Cleveland’s Carlos Santana returned to the lineup after being on the 7-day disabled list because of a concussion. He went 0 for 4 as the designated hitter. The Indians had lost seven of nine since sweeping three straight from the Tigers in Cleveland last month. Jimenez hit the first batter he faced and allowed

Fujita witnessed Williams’ speech BEREA (AP) — Browns linebacker Scott Fujita admitted being in New Orleans’ locker room when former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams delivered his brutal pregame speech imploring the Saints to target players. said Fujita Tuesday he was escorting former teammate Steve Gleason, who is FUJITA afflicted with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, in San Francisco last January when they attended New Orleans’ playoff game against the 49ers. Fujita, who has been suspended three games by the NFL for his role in the

with Cleveland. He has appealed his suspension, but Monday’s ruling by an arbitrator that commissioner Roger Goodell has the authority to discipline players for their part in the payfor-hits program was a blow to his chances of getting his penalty reduced. “It’s certainly disappointing, but this is a part of the process,� he said. “You’ve just got to be patient and respect that process and just keep hoping for a positive outcome.� Fujita has maintained he never contributed money to the Saints’ pool since being implicated in the scandal along with three other suspended players: linebacker Jonathan Vilma, defensive end Anthony Hargrove, now with Green Bay, and Saints defensive

end Will Smith. Vilma, who has been suspended for all of next season, has filed a defamation lawsuit against Goodell. Fujita’s trying to remain upbeat during a personally challenging period when his reputation as an advocate for player safety has been questioned. The 32-year-old serves as an executive member for the NFLPA, a position he has no plans of leaving. “I accept that responsibility,� he said. “I was nominated a few years ago for a reason. I wanted to be a part of that culture change and help in pushing forward more health and safety measures, getting new benefits for the players and I take that seriously. I can’t walk away from the players on that.�

Djokovic clutch late Rallies in 5, sets up semifinal rematch with Federer PARIS (AP) — As the chilly evening air swirled, and raindrops fell, and the thousands of spectators pulling for his opponent hushed, Novak Djokovic stood a single point from exiting the French Open. A single point from losing to France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarterfinals at Roland Garros. A single point from losing the chance to pursue a fourth consecutive Grand Slam title, something no man has done in 43 years. Steeling himself with so much at stake, Djokovic came through, taking that crucial point thanks to an overhead that skimmed off the baseline to set up a putaway volley. Seconds later, he faced the same predicament one point from defeat and came through again, this time with a leaping forehand that barely landed in. All told, Djokovic faced four match points against Tsonga and won each one, extending the contest until seizing control for good. Djokovic won his 26th Grand Slam match in a row Tuesday, coming back and beating the fifth-seeded Tsonga 6-1, 5-7, 5-7, 7-6 (6), 6-1 to set up a French Open rematch against 16-time major champion Roger Federer. A year ago in the semifinals at Roland Garros, Federer ended Djokovic’s 43-match winning streak, the last time the Serb lost at one of tennis’ four most important tournaments. “Tennis is very mental. Lots of emotions,� said the No. 1-ranked Djokovic, who won Wimbledon last July, the U.S. Open last September, and the Australian Open in January. “If you’re playing a top player, a home favorite, and you have a crowd that’s supporting him, you have to face these things. Physically, we’re all fit, all hitting the ball well. But mentally, it’s just a matter of a point here, a point there. That’s sport. The one that mentally pushes more in some moments and gets a bit lucky gets the win.�

Saints’ bounty program, had not previously mentioned witnessing Williams’ vicious rant, which became public after it was released by a documentary filmmaker. Fujita reiterated he feels Williams’ comments were “highly inappropriate.� “I’m not proud of things that were said by Gregg Williams and at the same time he’s a man I respect and loved playing for, so there’s definitely a conflict with all that,� Fujita said after the Browns opened their three-day minicamp. Fujita was with the Saints from 2006-09 before he signed as a free agent

Novak Djokovic returns in his quarter final match against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at the French Open in Roland Garros stadium in Paris Tuesday. Federer also fashioned a come-from-behind victory, and while he never was confronted with a match point, he did drop the first two sets before getting past No. 9 Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina 3-6, 6-7 (4), 6-2, 60, 6-3. After taking that big lead, del Potro who upset Federer in the 2009 U.S. Open final appeared to be hampered increasingly by a left knee that was heavily wrapped in white tape, although he refused to place any blame there afterward. “He called the trainer, but he didn’t take a timeout, so I didn’t know what they were talking about, if he got painkillers, or what happened. So I was just trying to focus on me, really, because I was in trouble. He wasn’t,â€? said Federer, who won his only French Open title in 2009. “Maybe his knee was (a problem). I don’t know,â€? Federer continued. “But doesn’t matter how bad that knee is. Maybe he can just sit on it and just say, ‘OK, here, take the two next sets ‌ and then I’ll come back in the fifth set and I will

destroy you.’� The pivotal moment, then, was the fifth set’s opening game, a 10-minute test. Del Potro held a break point, but Federer dismissed it with a forehand winner, then held. Del Potro called that his “chance to win,� and deemed Federer’s response there “huge.� The pair of riveting fiveset men’s quarterfinals were quite a feast for fans after the light fare of the women’s straight-set quarterfinals. No. 21 Sara Errani of Italy entered Tuesday with an 0-28 record against top10 opponents but reached her first Grand Slam semifinal by defeating No. 10 Angelique Kerber of Germany 6-3, 7-6 (2). Errani’s best results have come in doubles, and she’s also into the French Open semifinals of that event with Roberta Vinci. Errani now faces U.S. Open champion Sam Stosur, who is seeded sixth. Stosur eliminated No. 15 Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia 6-4, 6-1, taking the last six games and 13 of 14 points in

one stretch. Asked whether she’s surprised Errani made it this far, Stosur replied: “No, not necessarily.� The last quarterfinals are Wednesday: No. 2 Maria Sharapova vs. No. 23 Kaia Kanepi, No. 4 Petra Kvitova vs. 142nd-ranked qualifier Yaroslava Shvedova, No. 2 Rafael Nadal vs. No. 12 Nicolas Almagro, and No. 4 Andy Murray vs. No. 6 David Ferrer. Nadal is trying to become the first man to win seven French Open championships. Djokovic is chasing history, too: Only two men, Don Budge in 1938 and Rod Laver in 1962 and 1969, claimed four major trophies in succession. They did it within a calendar year. Djokovic’s feat wouldn’t be considered a true Grand Slam because it’s spread over two seasons, but it would be remarkable, nonetheless. After Djokovic cruised through his first seven service games Tuesday, winning 29 of 36 points, Tsonga got back into the match by breaking twice late in the second set, including the last game, drawing a standing ovation at Court Philippe Chatrier. when the “That’s momentum changed,� Djokovic said. Fast-forward to the end of the third set, and again, Tsonga broke Djokovic in the final game, again earning a long, loud celebration in the stands. But Djokovic wouldn’t go quietly. About 10 minutes after erasing Tsonga’s first two match points at 5-4 in the fourth set, Djokovic dealt with two more at 6-5. He got some help on No. 3, when Tsonga dumped a forehand into the net. Djokovic slammed home an overhead near a line on No. 4. When he held serve to 6-all, Djokovic roared. Tsonga missed a backhand to end the ensuing tiebreaker, sending them to a fifth set, and Djokovic strutted to the changeover, baring his teeth and shaking his right fist. When Djokovic’s backhand closed the match 4 hours, 9 minutes after it began, he reared back on his heels and pumped both arms, then pounded his chest.
