Council approves CDBG funding BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer Troy City Council unanimously approved the annual allocation of Community Development Block Grant funds for 2014, totaling $75,000. Projects must benefit or serve low to moderate-income households and meet specific guidelines established under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, said city administrative assistant Sue Knight. City staff selected the Family

Rainfall soaks Montana Gov. Steve Bullock declared an emergency Wednesday in 15 counties and two reservations due to widespread flooding in northern and central Montana. Bullock signed an executive order that allows state resources to be used to respond to the flooding damage. See Page 10.

Abuse Shelter of Miami County Inc. and Lincoln Community Center as grant recipients. The shelter was allotted $58,250 for boiler and heating repairs, and Lincoln Community Center was granted $7,000 to replace steep exterior stairs. “Those are all excellent causes, and they’re great for our community, providing services or recreation for the city of Troy,” said councilman Doug Tremblay in an inter-

view Wednesday. The city was eligible to receive $75,000 for 2014 (Fiscal Year 2013), down from $84,000 this year, $96,000 last year and $105,000 the year prior, due to federal budget cuts. Only two projects were permitted to receive funding under the CDBG guidelines this year, in addition to the $7,250 in program administration and $2,500 toward participation in the Miami County Fair Housing program. Development Director Jim Dando notifies those organizations

that may quality for the funding and submits projects that meet the CDBG requirements. As established by CDBG guidelines, two public hearings must be held regarding the allocation, in addition to other procedures. Councilman Tom Kendall said CDBG allows for valuable projects that might be overlooked without CDBG funding. “It’s needed and available to use, and I just feel it’s beneficial to the community,” Kendall said. “We’v been able to do things (the city) otherwise wouldn’t be able to do.”

Back home on the Great Miami River levee, Troy Strawberry Festival Manager Heather Dorsten said 2013’s festival was more or less a rebuilding year for the city’s celebration of all things strawberry. Straw actually lined the levee paths in anticipation of the rains that managed to stay at bay until late Saturday evening after nonprofit booths closed, but sales of items such as the Miami East High School cheerleaders pork chops and the Troy Kiwanis strawberry milkshakes still sold out at the end of each day. Dorsten said she kept her eyes on the sky, waiting for the rain that never came much of last weekend. “The weather really cooperated from Saturday evening on,” Dorsten said. “I kept thinking there was going to be a storm coming STAFF PHOTOS/ANTHONY WEBER but each time it broke up Fire crews from several area departments including Troy Fire battle a blaze at 412 Walnut St. Wednesday in Troy. right before it hit Dayton.

• IRS officials enjoyed luxury rooms at conference WASHINGTON (AP) — Already heavily criticized for targeting conservative groups, the Internal Revenue Service absorbed another blow Tuesday as new details emerged about senior officials enjoying luxury hotel rooms, free drinks and free food at a $4.1 million training conference. It was one of many expensive gatherings the agency held for employees over a three-year period. One top official stayed five nights in a room that regularly goes for $3,500 a night, and another who was later promoted stayed four nights in a room that regularly goes for $1,499. A total of 132 IRS officials received room upgrades at the conference in 2010 in Anaheim, Calif., according to a report by J. Russell George, the Treasury Department inspector general for tax administration. The tax agency paid a flat daily fee of $135 per hotel room, the report said, but the upgrades were part of a package deal that added to the overall cost of the conference. Chrysler refuses U.S. request to recall vehicles DETROIT — A defiant Chrysler is refusing to recall about 2.7 million Jeeps the government says are at risk of a fuel tank fire in a rear-end collision. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration sent Chrysler a letter asking that the company voluntarily recall Jeep Grand Cherokees from 1993 through 2004 and Jeep Libertys from 2002 through 2007. Chrysler Group LLC, which is majority-owned by Italy’s Fiat SpA, said in a statement Tuesday that the Jeeps are safe and it “does not intend to recall the vehicles.” Such a refusal by an auto company is rare. NHTSA can order a recall but may need a court order to enforce it. — Staff and wire reports


animals on the levee,” Dorsten said. “That was an issue. It’s crowded and it makes the animals nervous.” Dorsten said she hopes to bring a lot of festival activities back in 2014, such as Strawberry Idol, the Duck Race and the KidA-Thon. “I’ve already had someone approach me about getting back the Kid-A-Thon next year,” Dorsten said. Dorsten said many people have requested Strawberry Idol to make a come back as well as the Duck Race, although new ducks are needed. “We used the ducks in the fountain last year and they all turned red, so we need new ducks,” Dorsten said. Dorsten also said the festival is seeking local artists for the arts and crafts booths in the future. The items must be handmade and not be home-sales products, which the festival does not allow. “We’d love to have local artists at our festival,” Dorsten said. “We have arts and crafts vendors all the way from Texas, so we’d like to feature more local people at our festival.” Along with new ducks, the festival is always on the lookout for volunteers to join in the festival fun. “We are trying to attract new volunteers to join our ‘merry band of misfits’ that we have already,” Dorsten said. “We have great vol-

We also want to hear how the festival can improve so we can make it better for every one next year.” Looking forward to next year, Dorsten said 2014 Strawberry Festival chairwoman Kathy Roetter is all ready to take the reins to put her mark on the 2014

Obama names Rice as his new security adviser


Troy Fire Department personnel, including firefighter Greg Dilts, battle a blaze on Walnut Street Wednesday in Troy.

Blaze • CONTINUED FROM 1 “It is still being invested by fire inspectors,” said Troy Fire Department Platoon Commander Don Pemberton. Firefighters battled the blaze — which eventually spread to the nearby house — for almost three hours before it was completely extinguished, he added. No one was injured in the incident and all individuals were out of the

building by the time the firefighters arrived, he said. The five people who lived in the building — which was divided into two apartments — are now being assisted by the Red Cross. Although an exact damage estimate was not available, Pemberton said the garage is likely a total loss. Personnel from the Troy Police Department and Casstown Volunteer Fire Department also responded to the incident.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Defying Republican critics, President Barack Obama named outspoken diplomat Susan Rice as his national security adviser Wed_nesday, giving her a larger voice in U.S. foreign policy despite accusations that she misled the nation in the aftermath of the deadly attack on Americans in Benghazi, Libya. The appointment, along with the nomination of human rights advocate Samantha Power to replace Rice as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, signals a shift by Obama toward advisers who favor more robust American intervention overseas for humanitarian purposes. But it’s unclear whether that philosophy will alter the president’s policies in Syria, where he has resisted pressure to use U.S. military force to stem that country’s civil war. Rice’s appointment provides a measure of redemption after the contentious Benghazi investigations forced her from consideration as Obama’s second-term secretary of state. The president, who vigorously defended Rice from the GOP criticism at the time, lauded his close friend Wednesday as a “patriot who puts her country first.” “Susan is a fierce champion for justice and human decency. But she’s also mindful that we have to exercise our power wisely and deliberately,” Obama said in a White House Rose Garden ceremony. The 48-year-old Rice takes the influential national security post in the president’s inner circle from Tom Donilon, who is stepping down in July after more than four years in the

Obama White House. The president credited Donilon with having “shaped every single national security policy of my presidency,” including the renewed U.S. focus on the Asia-Pacific region and the tricky American relationship with Russia. Wednesday’s announcements came as Obama seeks to regroup from three controversies that have emboldened Republicans and threatened to overshadow his agenda: the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative political groups, the Justice Department’s seizure of phone records of Associated Press journalists and the resurgent investigation into the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Rice became entangled in the Benghazi case after asserting in television interviews that the September attack was probably spontaneous, a statement that was later proven false. While Rice said she was relying on talking points crafted by the administration, she became a target for Republicans accusing the White House of trying to cover up a terror attack during the presidential election. But because Rice’s new job does not require Senate confirmation, some of the GOP lawmakers who doled out the most aggressive attacks appeared resigned to her promotion through the ranks of Obama’s national security team. Arizona Sen. John McCain, one of Rice’s harshest critics, wrote on Twitter Wednesday that he disagreed with her appointment but would “make every effort” to work with her on important matters.

Report: Post-bin Laden raid security lapse occurred WASHINGTON (AP) — Several weeks after overseeing the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, then-CIA Director Leon Panetta revealed the name of the raid commander in a speech attended by the writer of the film “Zero Dark Thirty,”

according to a draft report by Pentagon investigators. Under security rules, the commander’s name was not to be made public, but the draft report did not say whether Panetta knew a member of the public was in his audience at CIA head-

quarters. A former CIA official familiar with the event said Wednesday that Panetta did not know of the writer’s presence; if the disclosure was inadvertent it would not constitute a violation of the rules by Panetta. The former official spoke on condition of anonymity because a security issue was involved. The unpublished draft report was first disclosed by the Project on Government Oversight and confirmed by Rep. Peter King, who asked for the investigation nearly two years ago. The draft report did not accuse Panetta of wrongdoing. King, R-N.Y., said he has not seen the draft report but was briefed on some of its

contents. “It’s been told to me what’s in there,” King said. He said it confirmed his suspicion that the Obama administration cut corners on security in its dealings with Hollywood executives eager to produce a film about the May 2, 2011, raid on bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan. King said it would not surprise him if Panetta was unaware that the movie writer was in his audience. “Whatever he did was not done intentionally,” King said, adding that he still questions why someone allowed a person without proper security clearances to attend. In the movie, which received a best picture Oscar

nomination, Panetta’s character was played by James Gandolfini. “CIA was very sloppy and the administration was very sloppy in enforcing security procedures when it came to Hollywood,” King said in a telephone interview. “It almost seems as if they were star-struck.” The episode is among many that have raised questions about leaks of classified information and the apparently selective enforcement of security rules by government officials. A Pentagon spokesman, Army Col. Steve Warren, said the Defense Department had no comment on the draft report by its inspector general.

N.J.’s Gov. Christie bashed for election move TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Seven months after he stood shoulder-toshoulder with President Barack Obama in what was celebrated by many in storm-battered New Jersey as a selfless display of bipartisanship, Republican Gov. Chris Christie finds himself accused of hypocrisy and naked political self-interest. The reason: On Tuesday, the day after Sen. Frank Lautenberg’s death, Christie announced a special election to fill the seat. But instead of holding it in November, when Christie is on the ballot for re-election, the governor scheduled it for Oct. 16, at an expected cost to the state of $12 million. The move seemed at odds with Christie’s reputation for budgetcutting, and it infuriated both Democrats and Republicans. Some said Christie clearly doesn’t want to be on the same ballot with a strong Democrat for Senate say, Newark Mayor Cory

Booker, a rising star in the party for fear that that could boost black and Democratic turnout and deny Christie the blowout victory that could make him a strong candidate for the White House in 2016. Former Rep. Dick Armey, a tea party leader from Texas who was once GOP House majority leader, called the October special election “debilitating stupidity.” In an interview with ABC, he predicted it would backfire with Republicans because Christie was stressing fiscal responsibility as governor, yet willing to waste millions on special elections. The Star-Ledger, New Jersey’s largest newspaper, called it “a shameless move that will waste at least $12 million and risk the integrity of the vote.” The sharp criticism from so many directions is unusual for Christie, whose often combative style and quick wit have made

him popular in New Jersey, an attraction as a fundraiser for Republicans across the country and a frequent guest on TV talk shows. Last year, he worked closely with Obama in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy and hugged the president when he visited storm-devastated parts of New Jersey. That drew criticism from some Republicans, who said he was too cozy with the president days before Obama was re-elected. But the blowback this time is more widespread. When he unveiled the plan Tuesday, Christie portrayed it as a nonpolitical move designed to uphold democratic principles by giving voters a say in their representation as quickly as possible under state law. “This is about guaranteeing the people of New Jersey both a choice and a voice in the process in the representation that they

deserve in Washington,” he said. Christie also scheduled a Senate primary election for Aug. 13, saying the candidates should be chosen by the people and not party bosses. That will cost the state another $12 million, and set up three elections in a CHRISTIE span of less than three months. “It’s as if he gave the residents of this state the finger,” Democratic state Sen. Richard Codey said. “Instead of holding an expensive special election that tries to protect the governor’s political vulnerabilities, the voters should have the opportunity to have their say in the regular election in November.” Booker and Rep. Frank Pallone, both well-financed Democrats, had previously

expressed interest in the seat held by Lautenberg, a Democrat whose term expires at the start of 2015. Neither man has said whether he will run in the special election. If Booker were on the ballot in November, he could bring out Democratic voters who would not bother to show up at the polls for Barbara Buono, the state senator who is challenging Christie for governor. Big Democratic turnout could hurt the GOP’s chances of picking up seats in the Legislature. On the Republican side, some lawmakers are reportedly considering running for the Senate, along with some political outsiders, including Al Leiter, a former major league pitcher who is now a broadcaster.

Rescue personnel search the scene of a building collapse in downtown Philadelphia Wednesday. A four-story building being demolished collapsed Wednesday on the edge of downtown. Rescue crews were trying to extricate two people who were trapped, city Fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers said.

One dies, at least 13 are injured in Philadelphia building collapse PHILADELPHIA (AP) A building that was being torn down collapsed with a thunderous boom Wednesday, raining bricks on a neighboring thrift store, killing a woman and injuring at least 13 other people in an accident that witnesses said was bound to happen. The woman who died was 35 years old, the mayor said, but no other information about her was released. Rescuers pulled another woman, trapped amid the rubble of a Salvation Army thrift store, after they heard her voice, city fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers said, and the search for survivors continued hours after the 10:45 a.m. collapse on the edge of downtown. Rescuers used buckets and their bare hands to move bricks and rubble. “We do not know how many people were actually in the thrift store this morning when the wall collapsed on the building,” Mayor Michael Nutter said late Wednesday afternoon. Survivors were taken to hospitals with minor injuries, Ayers said. The collapse involved an empty building that once housed a first-floor sandwich shop and apartments above. The thrift shop was on one side. The other side was an adult bookstore and theater that had been taken down within the last few months.

A Philadelphia Firefighter, center, lays with his hand thrust into an empty area underneath a clothing rack under the rubble of a collapsed building on the edge of downtown Philadelphia Wednesday. The four-story building being demolished collapsed with a thunderous boom Wednesday, raining bricks down on a thrift store. Several witnesses said they had been casting a wary eye on the demolition site and questioned how the workers were tackling the job. That raised questions about how closely the highly visible spot on Market Street one of Philadelphia’s signature boulevards was being monitored. Roofer Patrick Glynn said he had been watching workers take down the doomed building over the past few weeks, and said he suspected a collapse was inevitable because of the methods the workers were using.

“For weeks they’ve been standing on the edge, knocking bricks off,” he said. “You could just see it was ready to go at any time. I knew it was going to happen.” Glynn and Anthony Soli were working on a roof atop a nearby building when they heard what sounded like two loud bangs or explosions. They immediately ran down the scaffolding and helped pull out two women and a man. Steve Cramer, who has been working as a window washer across the street for several days, said the demolition crew left 30 feet of a dividing wall up with no braces and it compromised the integrity of the building “We’ve been calling it for the past week it’s going to fall, it’s going to fall,” his coworker Dan Gillis said.

There were no existing violations on the building and the demolition company had proper permits for the work they were doing, according to Carlton Williams of the city’s Department of Licenses and Inspections. The city issued a demolition permit for the fourstory structure on Feb. 1. Online records list the contractor as Plato Marinakos Jr., an architect. He told The Associated Press that Campbell Construction was handling the demolition. A message was left at a listing for Campbell Construction in Philadelphia. A demolition expert wondered what precautions were taken to protect the Salvation Army store, especially since it remained open.

denomination in the U.S. already have a youth program for boys, the Royal Ambassadors. SBC leaders have suggested it could expand to accommodate boys leaving the Scouts. According to BSA figures, Baptist churches sponsor Scout units serving about 108,000 of the BSA’s 2.6 million youth members. While many Baptist churches may be awaiting the outcome of next week’s meeting, some already have decided to break with the BSA. In Marietta, Ga., pastor Ernest Easley said his Roswell Street Baptist Church is ending its affiliation with Boy Scout Troop 204 that dates back to 1945. “I never dreamed I’d have to stand up publicly and say to parents: ‘Pull your kids out of the Boy Scouts,’” Easley told Baptist Press, the SBC’s official news agency. Baptist churches in Elizabethtown and Rineyville, Ky., Helena and Pelham, Ala., and Jacksonville, Ark., also say they’re cutting ties with the BSA. Tim Reed, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Gravel Ridge in Jacksonville, said in an email that his congregation, including a 15-year-old boy on track to win the coveted Eagle Scout rank, strongly backed the decision to end sponsorship of a Scout troop.

In suburban Atlanta, northern Idaho and a number of other places, churches have moved swiftly to sever ties with the Boy Scouts of America in protest over the vote last month to let openly gay boys participate in Scouting. To date, it’s far from the mass defection that some conservatives had predicted before the vote by the BSA’s National Council. But the exodus could soon swell, depending on the outcome of the Southern Baptist Convention’s annual meeting next week in Houston. Baptist leaders say the agenda is likely to include a resolution encouraging SBC-affiliated churches to phase out their sponsorships of Scout units. “I would bet there would be a resolution expressing disappointment with the Boy Scouts’ decision and calling on Southern Baptist churches to prepare for the need for alternatives,” said the Rev. Russell Moore, president of the SBC’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. “How quickly that happens will probably differ from congregation to congregation,” Moore said. “I do think most Southern Baptists see the Boy Scouts moving in a direction that’s not going to be consistent with our beliefs.” The Southern Baptists the largest Protestant ∙ 1-800-398-2154 40082645

WASHINGTON (AP) — New fossil evidence of the earliest complete skeleton of an ancient primate suggests it was a hyperactive, wide-eyed creature so small you could hold a couple of them in your hand if only they would stay still long enough. The 55 million-year-old fossil dug up in central China is one of our first primate relatives and it gives scientists a better understanding of the complex evolution that eventually led to us. This tiny monkeylike creature weighed an ounce or less and wasn’t a direct ancestor. Because it’s so far back on the family tree it offers the best clues yet of what our earliest direct relatives would have been like at that time, according to a study published Wednesday in the journal Nature. “It’s a close cousin in fact,” said study author Christopher Beard, curator at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh. He said it is “the closest thing we have to an ancestor of humans” so long ago. Primate is the order of life that includes humans along with apes, monkeys, and lemurs. Humans are set apart from other mammals because of our grasping five fingers and toes, nails, and forward-facing eyes. And this new species called Archicebus achilles

fits right in, Beard said. Among primates there are three suborders: anthropoids, which include apes, monkeys and us; and two other suborders that include lemurs and the lesser known tarsiers. This new species is in the same grouping as tarsiers, but close to the offshoot branch in the family tree where humans come from. The fossil includes anthropoidlike features. “It’s a cute little thing; it’s ridiculously little,” Beard said. “That’s one of the more important scientific aspects of the whole story.” With a trunk only 2.8 inches long, the furry creature was about as small as you can get and still be a mammal, Beard said. Just like elephants and horses, the farther back in time you get for some of today’s bigger mammals, the smaller they get, Beard said. Because it was so small and warm-blooded it had to eat bugs and move constantly to keep from losing internal heat, Beard said. That means, Beard said, our earliest primate relatives were “very frenetic creatures, anxious, highly caffeinated animals running around looking for their next meal.” They lived in a tree-lined area near a Chinese lake, swinging around trees in a hotter climate, Beard said.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” — First Amendment, U.S. Constitution

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Star-Ledger, Newark, N.J., on the U.S. tax code and Apple: You’ve heard it said many times that some of the worst assaults on public welfare and the national interest are not the actions that are illegal but those that, while odious, are strictly legal. Not many years go by without some additional support for that sad truth. Now we have more — the stunning success of Apple, perhaps the most admired American corporation, in avoiding a tax sum calculated in one account as roughly 30 percent of what it owed this country on its vast profits. How did Apple do it? Easy. … Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, was anything but apologetic about his company’s tax avoidance in an appearance before Congress this week. Apple, he pointed out, paid $6 billion in U.S. taxes last year and expects to pay more next year. And the tactics taken to shelter profits, he said, were necessary steps to protect the interests of Apple shareholders. The real problem, Cook said, is the relatively high U.S. corporate tax rate and an onerously complex tax code. The tax code is admittedly a nightmare. And we can argue about whether the corporate rate’s too high. But one thing that’s indisputable is that almost no big business pays the full corporate tariff. Why else do you think their lobbyists are millionaires? Cook endorsed the idea of tax reform even though he said it would raise Apple’s tax tab, which was mighty nice of him, considering giants such as Apple will likely dominate any new tax debate that involves our money-hungry federal legislators. How can we know that? Because we did it once before, in the 1980s. Give us lower rates, the corporate world promised, and we’ll accept elimination of loopholes. Sounded good. And for a time it was. But, alas, over the long haul, many of the loopholes crept back in — lobbyists again — but the rates never went back to where they’d been. Seattle Times on U.S. drones scrutinized: Congress needs to hold President Obama accountable for his pledge to share information with lawmakers on drone use. Obama’s speech Thursday at the National Defense University in Washington, D.C., did not shed convincing light on the legality of using drones to kill terrorists or their appropriateness as a military option. Before the speech, the administration confirmed that four American citizens designated as terrorist threats or linked to them had been killed abroad in drone attacks. The president’s own talking points about who is targeted and why and the legality of drones under U.S. and international law all need intense scrutiny by Congress. Obama was emphatic about the effectiveness of drone strikes. At what cost? Those strikes in Pakistan and Yemen, acknowledged as not overt war zones, have not brought those nations any closer to the U.S. Civilian casualties from errant drone attacks in Afghanistan compromise the good work done by U.S. forces to secure the country. The predictable effect, in the president’s own words, is to create new enemies. The president apparently moved control of the drone strikes from the Central Intelligence Agency to the U.S. military. Congress has to follow up to see how that implied improvement makes a difference. Obama is also long overdue to follow through on a 2008 campaign pledge to close the prison at Guantanamo. The facility in Cuba that once held more than 700 detainees now has fewer than 200, and half of them are on a hunger strike. Held without charges, their presence mocks the values of a nation grounded in the law. Repatriate them. If any of the remaining prisoners ought to be locked up, bring them to the U.S. to stand trial. Employ the legal standards we have espoused on foreign soil.

Mistakes should not define one’s entire legacy Seventeen years ago, soonto-be-former President of The Ohio State University E. Gordon Gee was on the attack. And he had me in his crosshairs. On Dec. 13, 1996, Gee stood before OSU’s fall quarter graduating class. He spent the second half of the speech talking about some of the more noteworthy graduates from the class, including two football players, former Ohio State star basketball player and current CBS analyst Clark Kellog (he came back to get his degree long after his playing days had ended), OSU marching band members and several graduates who had achieved tremendous success in their academic fields. Then he got to me. Gee stood on the stage in front of several thousand people at St. John Arena and said the following: “Many members of this graduating class have read the words of David Fong in The Lantern (OSU’s student newspaper). As a sports writer and regular columnist, David shares his views on many things, including the job I’m doing as president … he will not receive his degree today.” He was, of course, kidding. Not only did I get my degree that day, but I got a hug from him as I walked across the stage and my mother got a

David Fong Troy Daily News Columnist memory she’ll take with her for the rest of her life. Seriously — for weeks after I graduated, my mom would carry around a VCR tape of my graduation and would show that clip to anyone who would stand still long enough to watch it. More than a decade after my graduation, I had another runin with Gee. He was speaking at the Troy Country Club to the Miami County Chapter of The Ohio State Alumni Association, and I went out there to interview him. I was stunned that he not only remembered my name in the 12 years since I had graduated — keep in mind, more than 10,000 students graduate from Ohio State every year — but he greeted me with a hearty hug. After the luncheon, as I sat next to Gee conducting an interview, two of his aides approached us. Gee introduced me to them by saying, “This is David Fong. He was a pain in

my (rear) in college and he’s still a pain in the (rear) now.” (Note: He didn’t say “rear.”) Of course, Gee doesn’t save his wit just for individuals, however. Lately, he’s had some rather candid comments about far larger groups of people, including Polish people (I’m half Polish) and Catholics (I’m all Catholic). In all four cases in which I’ve been on the wrong on the wrong end of Gee’s barbs — both singularly and collectively — I have yet to come away offended. In fact, I found all four to be pretty funny. In the two cases involving me specifically, I thought they were pretty darn accurate (Note: Gee would not have said “darn” accurate). Now before we go any further, let me say this much — this column is not intended to be a sycophantic defense of the man beloved by so many current and former Ohio State students. While I may have nothing but good things to say about the man in my personal dealings with him, I understand that some of the more recent comments he made — particularly the ones about priests, Catholics and, for the most part, Southerners — are insensitive at best and outright ignorant at worst. While I personally wasn’t

offended by any of Gee’s remarks, I absolutely can see how others could be and would never tell them how they should feel about his comments. While I don’t think his comments were meant to be malicious — anyone who has met the man would tell you he doesn’t have a mean bone in his scrawny frame — I have no doubt they weren’t particularly well-thought out. And I am certain now — in the cold light of day and armed with ample amounts of reflection and hindsight — he’d be the first to agree with me. Gee is a well-educated man. He should have known better than to say what he did. And now he is paying the price for his words. Seems as though that tends to happen a lot to legends at Ohio State — very few of them get the storybook ending. It’s almost as if they higher they rise, the further they are destined to fall. Woody Hayes went out by punching Charlie Bauman at the Gator Bowl. Jim Tressel’s tenure at Ohio State ended when he conveniently chose to look the other way while NCAA violations were being committed. And now Gee is going out with a shadow on his legacy. Which, truthfully, is the real shame in all of this.

All three men did untold good for the university. Many are quick to forget the time both Hayes and Tressel spent visiting sick children in the hospital. Same goes for Gee. How many people came to The Ohio State University as boys and girls and left as young men and women thanks to the lessons they learned from those three? How many billions (yes, billions) of dollars did Gee raise to help make the university a better place. None of this is black and white, mind you. Gee should not be canonized, but at the same time should not be demonized. Same goes for Hayes and Tressel. They are three men who, like the rest of us, made mistakes. Their mistakes just happened to be far more public than the average person’s mistakes. The ending of their time at Ohio State should not tell the whole story, however. There are many more chapters to all their legacies. So while we can’t forget how it ended, we shouldn’t forget how it began, either. And no punch, illegal tattoo or awkward joke can change that. Troy’s very own David Fong appears on Thursdays in the Troy Daily News. How firm thy friendship …

Church services are now past and are set to be here again in two weeks. Through it all I was battling a cough and lost my voice for a few days. I’m feeling better every day, which I’m glad for. I will share recipes for this week and will write more about church services next week. Tonight is Verena’s eighth grade graduation. Meanwhile, enjoy these spring recipes: FROSTY STRAWBERRY SQUARES 2 egg whites 1 c. sugar 2 c. crushed fresh strawberries 1 c. whipping cream Beat together egg whites, berries and sugar for 10 minutes in a large bowl. Make sure the bowl is very large because the mixture will triple in size. Whip cream and fold into mixture. Stir until well-blended. Pour into molds or pan and freeze and least six hours. Cut into squares and serve. Delicious! TOMATO ASPARAGUS SALAD 3/4 pound fresh asparagus cut and trimmed into 1 1/2-inch pieces 3 plum-sized tomatoes, halved and sliced 3/4 cup chopped red onions 1/2 cup balsamic vinaigrette dressing

Using a pair of tongs, place the lettuce directly on the cooking grates cut side down. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Do not grill longer; the lettuce should be slightly raw and crunchy at the center. Remove to a clean platter and let rest for 5 minutes. Place each half on a serving plate, then drizzle with blue cheese dressing and top with the diced bacon. Serve immediately.

Husband may want to talk to his parents before event Dear Annie: My husband is a high-ranking officer in the military. He has worked hard to achieve his current position and is highly respected. The problem is, his family treats him like a child. In a few months, there will be a formal ceremony to mark his change of command. My in-laws will be in attendance, and they are certain to embarrass him. They insist on calling him by his unusual childhood nickname (he cringes every time). They talk down to him and give him gifts meant for children, such as books for teen boys (last Christmas), a small child's backpack (last birthday) and now a child's piggy bank, which they intend to present to him in front of his unit at the ceremony. These gifts are not intended as jokes. My husband is always gracious on the outside but horrified on the inside. Is there some way to remind his family that he is indeed an adult and has certainly earned the right to be treated like one? — Proud Military Spouse Dear Spouse: It is difficult to change ingrained behavior without the cooperation of all the people involved. Your husband apparently has determined that the best way to handle his parents is to leave things as they are. That is his choice. While we appreciate your desire to be supportive and protective, you might also be adding to his stress because your reaction is one of anger and embarrassment. Ask your husband whether he wants you to talk to his parents. If he says no, we urge you to separate their behavior from your husband's reputation. His patient tolerance of their inappropriateness says many positive things about the strength of his character. Dear Annie: My nephew, "Joe Smith," has a Ph.D. He is marrying "Jane Doe," who will soon have her M.D. What is the proper form of address for her? Would she be Dr. Jane Doe-Smith or Ms. Jane Doe-Smith or something else? When I address an envelope to both of them, do I write Dr. and Dr. Joe Smith or Dr. and Mrs. Joe Smith or The Doctors Joe and Jane Smith? It is difficult to be politically correct these days. — S. Dear S.: It's complicated, but not impossible. When introducing either of them, always use "Dr." If you are using titles when addressing an envelope, it would depend on whether it is formal ("Dr. Jane Smith and Dr. Joe Smith") or informal ("The Doctors Smith"), and whether she is retaining her maiden name ("Dr. Jane Doe" and "Dr. Joe Smith" on separate lines). If she is hyphenating her name, find out whether she prefers "Dr. Jane Doe-Smith" or "Dr. Jane Smith-Doe" and use that. When in doubt, ask what the preference is. Dear Annie: I could identify with the letter from "California," who found out after 40 years of marriage that her husband had been cheating on her with prostitutes for the past two decades. She was unsure of what to do next. I, too, had a husband who cheated on me for 20 years. His conquests were also often prostitutes. After 35 years of marriage and five kids, I gathered up all of my courage and filed for divorce. It was the most difficult thing I have ever done. Fast-forward four years. I am a gainfully employed, personally fulfilled and happy community volunteer who is dating a sweet, kind 65-year-old widower. This man loves, cherishes and respects me in ways I never thought possible. I feel like a queen! I may live three more years or 30, but I will never regret making the change I did. Remember that no one can go back and make a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending. — Heart Full of Joy in Pennsylvania Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Here are a few hints for the care of your contacts Dear Readers: Are you one of the more than 35 million Americans who wear contact lenses? If so, here are some very helpful hints from the Food and Drug Administration about caring for contact lenses: • Always wash your hands before putting in or taking out your contact lenses. • NEVER place contact lenses in your mouth to wet them! • DO NOT shower or swim with your contact lenses in. Any type of water (ocean, tap, bottled, etc.) is not sterile and can cause infections. • Only use products and solutions that your eye doctor has recommended. • Do not use any expired solu-

Hints from Heloise Columnist tions. • Do not reuse solution that contacts have been in. • When traveling, only use store-bought, travel-size containers of solution. Do not place contact solution into another container, because it won’t be sterile. • Every day, clean, rinse and air-dry the contact case, and completely replace the case every six

months. — Heloise P.S.: I wear only one “soft� lens occasionally, so these hints are a good reminder for me. DON’T FORGET Dear Heloise: Because I work five days a week at different locations, and a good distance from town, I started leaving a plastic, shoe-box-size container on the table next to my front door. Every time I think of something that needs to be taken to work or town the next time, I put it in the box. I carry this with me to my car every morning and back in at night. I can’t begin to tell you how many times this has saved me from forgetting something important or having to go back home to retrieve the item. —

Shirley R. in Arkansas KEEP OFF Dear Heloise: I have a hint to keep my cats and dogs off my couch so they don’t get it hairy. I bought a plastic runner (with pointy nubs on the bottom) that you use to keep dirt and snow off your carpet. It was cut to the length of the couch and covers all three cushions. With the nub side facing up, the animals do not enjoy sitting on it. When guests come, I just roll it up and put it aside. — Diane T. in Ohio That’s one way to keep them off the furniture! Aluminum foil also can keep them away, as they don’t usually like the sound it makes. — Heloise

Temperatures rise in Arizona desert cities

Rainfall soaks Montana

PHOENIX (AP) — Triple-digit temperatures continue to inch upward in Arizona’s desert cities, prompting concerns about how some people will fare in the summer heat. The National Weather Service’s Phoenix office is forecasting above-average highs through the weekend with little or no chance of precipitation. And, “only a modest cooling trend should be expected early next week,” the service cautioned. The forecast highs include 109 in Yuma and 110 in Phoenix on Friday and 114 in both Lake Havasu City and Bullhead City on Saturday. Tucson is forecast to reach 106 both days. That kind of heat can be deadly under the wrong circumstances. Seven children have died in other U.S. states over a 16-day period in May after being left in hot cars, the Phoenix Fire Department said in announcing a prevention campaign that includes putting warning stickers on convenience store

Flooding emergency named in 15 counties, 2 reservations GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — Gov. Steve Bullock declared an emergency Wednesday in 15 counties and two reservations due to widespread flooding in northern and central Montana. Bullock signed an executive order that allows state resources to be used to respond to the flooding damage. The flooding is the result of recent rainfall that is more than some areas see in an average year. The rain caused waterways and reservoirs to overflow, damaging roads and government infrastructure, and flooding the basements of homes, the governor’s declaration said. The Department of Military Affairs and Disaster and Emergency Services officials are coordinating with local agencies, Bullock’s office said. Spokesman Kevin O’Brien said preliminary damage estimates were unavailable, and there were no immediate plans to request federal assistance. More information would be available Thursday, he said. Some communities are still recovering from flooding disasters in 2010 and 2011, including the Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation. The Chippewa Cree tribe declared a flooding disaster on the reservation Monday after six roads were washed out and dozens of homeowners reported flooded base-


windows. In Mesa, city officials for the seventh year are conducting a campaign to collect thousands of bottles of water to help homeless people and others in need. “We have encountered people near death in 115degree heat in the parks. Fortunately we have been able to carry water donated during the campaign to revive them before calling firefighters and paramedics for emergency help,” Park Ranger John Goodie said. It’s not only the desert cities that are parched. Flagstaff in northern Arizona’s pine country has gone 90 days without significant precipitation aside from just under an inch of snow on May 9, the Arizona Daily Sun reported. “We’ve been so dry so far and we’re headed into the driest month, but you never know, we could have a wet June,” said Robert Rickey, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in nearby Bellemont.

First tropical storm of the season, Andrea, forms


In this Tuesday, June 4, photo, a driveway in Rocky Boy is a waterfall from flooding in Havre, Mont. The Chippewa Cree tribe estimates that flooding has caused between $1 million and $2 million in damages on the Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation. ments and interior damage from leaking roofs. The tribe estimates flooding has caused between $1 million and $2 million in damages. Tribal officials said an undetermined number of residents were displaced because of damage or because damaged roadways left them without access.

Six additional homes were without water after a line break along Boxelder Creek. Water Resources Division head Jay Eagleman said tribal officials were devising a strategy to reroute drinking water to those homes. Rocky Boy’s and the Fort Belknap reservation are included in Bullock’s declaration. The counties

covered by the declaration are Blaine, Chouteau, Custer, Dawson, Fergus, Garfield, Golden Valley, Hill, Judith Basin, McCone, Musselshell, Petroleum, Phillips, Rosebud and Valley. The weather has cleared, though scattered storms are expected later in the week.

MIAMI (AP) — The first tropical storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, Andrea, formed Wednesday over the Gulf of Mexico and was expected to bring wet weather to parts of Florida’s west coast over the next few days. Forecasters issued a tropical storm warning for a swath of Florida’s west coast starting at Boca Grande, an island to the northwest of Fort Myers, and ending in the Big Bend area of the state. Andrea had maximum sustained winds near 40 miles per hour as of 6 p.m. and is forecast to reach 45 mph over the next day. It was located about 310 miles southwest of Tampa.

A watch has been issued for most of northeast Florida up to North Carolina. Andrea was moving to the north at about 3 miles per hour and forecasters expected the storm to continue moving northeast at a faster speed on Thursday. The center of Andrea was expected to reach Florida’s coast this afternoon, then travel over land and bring foul weather to parts of Georgia and the Carolinas by Friday. Forecasters say Andrea could bring three to six inches of rain to parts of Florida and Georgia, with isolated areas seeing as much as eight inches.

In this Jan. 4, 2010 file photo, TSA officer Robert Howard signals an airline passenger forward at a security check-point at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in SeaTac, Wash. John Pistole, The head of the Transportation Security Administration says he's dropping a proposal that would have let airline passengers carry small knives, souvenir bats, golf clubs and other sports equipment onto planes. The proposal had drawn fierce opposition from lawmakers, airlines and others who said it would place passengers and crews at risk.


U.S. drops plans to allow small knives on planes WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The U.S. Transportation Security Administration is abandoning a plan to allow passengers to carry small knives, souvenir bats, golf clubs and other sports equipment onto planes in the face of fierce congressional and industry opposition, the head of the agency said Wednesday. By scuttling the plan to drop the knives and sports equipment from TSAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list of prohibited items, the agency can focus its attention on other priorities, including expanding its Pre-Check program to identify ahead of time travelers who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pose a security risk, TSA Administrator John Pistole told The Associated Press. Pistole had unveiled the proposal to loosen the rules for carry-ons in March, saying the knives and other items canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enable terrorists to cause a plane to crash. He said intercepting them takes time that would be better used searching for explosives and other more serious threats. TSA screeners confiscate over 2,000 of the small folding knives a day from passengers. Skeptical lawmakers, airlines, labor unions and some law enforcement groups complained that the knives and other items in the hands of the wrong passengers could be used to injure or even kill passengers and crew. Last month 145 House members signed a letter to Pistole asking him to keep in place the current policy prohibiting passengers from including the knives and other items in their carry-on bags. Flight attendant unions organized protests in Washington and at airports across the country. And Airlines for America, which represents major U.S. airlines, as well as top executives from some of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest airlines, came out against the plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After getting the input from all these different constituents, I realized there was not across-theboard support that would

serve us well in moving forward,â&#x20AC;? Pistole said. By dispensing with the controversial proposal, he said the agency can focus on programs to identify the greatest security threats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a recognition that, yes, these items could be used as weapons, but I want our folks to focus on those things that, again, are the most concern given the current intelligence,â&#x20AC;? he said. Pistoleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement that he was dropping the plan came as the House was expected to vote on an amendment to a Homeland Security spending bill that would block the TSA from spending money to implement the plan. The amendment will still be offered and it is expected to pass, said Eben BurnhamSnyder, a spokesman for Rep. Ed Markey, DMassachusetts, a sponsor of the amendment. Pistoleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;victory for every single person who sets foot on a plane, and a reaffirmation that the government listens to the people,â&#x20AC;? Markey said in a statement. But some opponents changed their position in recent weeks as Pistole explained his reasoning to Congress and in meetings with interest groups. Among those who initially criticized the TSA plan was Debra Burlingame, whose brother Charles was the pilot of the plane that hit the Pentagon in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They laid out a case for this that I thought made a lot of sense, and I really changed my mind,â&#x20AC;? she said in an interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The TSA is so overwhelmed with the screening process and what they are trying to keep off airplanes, that I think to lessen that difficult task or mitigate it can be a good thing,â&#x20AC;? Burlingame said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a safety issue. But there is a difference between safety onboard an aircraft and security aboard an aircraft.â&#x20AC;? The proposal would have permitted folding knives with blades that are

2.36 inches (6 centimeters) or less in length and are less than 1/2 inch (1 centimeter) wide. The aim was to allow passengers to carry pen knives, corkscrews with small blades and other knives. Passengers also would also have been be allowed to bring onboard noveltysized baseball bats less than 24 inches long, toy plastic bats, billiard cues, ski poles, hockey sticks, lacrosse sticks and two golf clubs. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unlikely in these days of hardened cockpit doors, armed off-duty pilots traveling on planes and other preventive measures that the small folding knives could be used by terrorists to take over a plane, Pistole told Congress at a March hearing. But in late April, three days before the proposal was scheduled to go into effect, the TSA announced it was being temporarily delayed in order to accommodate feedback from an advisory committee made up of aviation industry, consumer and law enforcement officials. The proposal would have brought U.S. security rules more in line with international rules. There has been a gradual easing by the U.S. of some of the security measures applied to passengers after Sept. 11. In 2005, the TSA changed its policies to allow passengers to carry on small scissors, knitting needles, tweezers, nail clippers and up to four books of matches. The move came as the agency turned its focus toward keeping explosives off planes, because intelligence officials believed that was the greatest threat to commercial aviation. And in September 2011, the TSA no longer required children 12 years old and under to remove their shoes at airport checkpoints. The agency recently issued new guidelines for travelers 75 and older so they can avoid removing shoes and light jackets when they go through airport security checkpoints.

Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter in hospital LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The 15-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson is physically fine after being taken to a hospital early Wednesday, an attorney for Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother said. Perry Sanders Jr. wrote in a statement to The Associated Press that Paris Jackson is getting appropriate medical attention and the family is seeking privacy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being a sensitive 15 year old is difficult no matter who you are,â&#x20AC;? he wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is especially difficult when you lose the person closest to you. Paris is physically fine and is getting appropriate medical attention. Please respect her privacy and the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s privacy.â&#x20AC;? Sanders declined further comment on Parisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; condition or the circumstances that led to her hospitalization. Fire and sheriff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s officials confirmed they trans-

ported someone from a home in Parisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; suburban Calabasas neighborhood for a possible overdose but did not release any identifying information or additional details. Paris frequently posts messages about her life on Twitter, where she has more than a million followers. One of her most recent posts was from the Beatlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesterdayâ&#x20AC;?: â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here to stay.â&#x20AC;? Another post included the question, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wonder why tears are salty?â&#x20AC;? A 20-minute video of the teen applying makeup was posted to YouTube last week. Paris says on Twitter she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how the video, in which she repeatedly asserts, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am so weird,â&#x20AC;? ended up on the site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope you guys liked it tho and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m too crazy,â&#x20AC;? she wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;i get

weird when iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not around people lol.â&#x20AC;? Katherine Jackson shares guardianship of her sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three children Paris and her brothers Prince, 16, and Blanket, 11 with the singerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nephew, TJ Jackson. Messages left for TJ Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney were not immediately returned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We appreciate everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thoughts for Paris at this time and their respect for the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s privacy,â&#x20AC;? said a statement from Eric George, an attorney for Debbie Rowe, Parisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; biological mother. Parisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; uncles Tito, Marlon and Jackie echoed that sentiment in their statement Wednesday: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you for the outpouring of concern and support for Paris she is safe and doing fine. We truly appreciate you respecting our familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s privacy at this time.â&#x20AC;?

State regulars BY COLIN FOSTER Associate Sports Editor Same story, different year. The Division III state track meet is loaded with kids from all over Miami County. Covington had four athletes win individual D-III regional titles, two for Troy Cron (110 and 300 hurdles), one for Jackie Siefring (300 hurdles) and another for freshman Carly Shell (3,200). Siefring also qualified

MIAMI COUNTY for state in the long jump. “Three of them (regional titles) were expected,” Covington coach Kyle Moore said. “With Troy in the 110, it seemed like there were four or five guys that could have went in and won. It seems like with Troy and Taylor Cordell (West Liberty-Salem), whoever runs the clean race is going to come out the winner.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio State University President Gordon Gee attempted to make his retirement announcement personal on Wednesday, citing everything from his age to his 7-month-old twin granddaughters to a California girlfriend as reasons for his abrupt departure next month. He continued to downplay the furor over remarks first reported by The Associated Press jabbing Roman Catholics, Notre Dame and the Southeastern Conference, comments taken seriously enough by university trustees that they threatened in March to fire him for further verbal transgressions. If anything, the remarks helped Gee reflect on what he wanted to do next, he said at a morning news conference. “It played that role but not a defining role in terms of my own conversation with myself,” Gee said. Gee left that news conference for a closed-door meeting with board trustees to discuss a longterm university plan. He said that upcoming project is another reason he wants to step down now rather than later. He couldn’t say when asked if he would have made a different decision had the remarks, recorded in December, not been made public last week. Gee explained away the onemonth notice he gave Tuesday by citing a desire not to stay on any longer than he has to. “I’m not a victory lap guy,” Gee said Wednesday. “The last thing I want to do is be queen for a day. I want to move on. I want the university to move on.” Trustee chairman Robert Schottenstein denied Gee had been forced out. In Dec. 5 comments to the university Athletic Council, Gee jokingly referred to “those damn Catholics” at Notre Dame and poked fun at the academic quality of other schools. He apologized when the comments were disclosed, saying they were “a poor attempt at humor and entirely inappropriate.” Ohio State at the time called the comments unacceptable and said it had placed Gee on a remediation plan to change his behavior. It was the latest in a string of remarks Gee has made in recent years that put him in hot water, though the first that brought such a strong warning from trustees. He apologized last year for likening the difficulties of coordinating various university divisions to the Polish Army. In 2011, Gee got egg on his face for saying at a news conference that rather than firing his embattled football coach he was worried that the coach “doesn’t dismiss me.”

Three Post 43 pitchers combined on a four-hit shutout, a five-run lead more than doubled in one inning and Troy routed the Dayton Dynasty 11-0 Tuesday at

Duke Park. Luke Veldman pitched the first three innings, Reid Ferrell pitched the next three and got credit for the win and Trenton Wood finished things

off in the seventh. Troy (7-1) started out slow, with single runs in the first and second innings before scoring three in the third to go up 5-0. Post 43 added six more in the bottom of the fifth to put the game com-

pletely out of reach. Garrett Mitchell was 3 for 4 with a double, Nick Sanders was 2 for 2 with a double, Colton Nealeigh was 2 for 4 with a double and Dylan Cascaden and Nick Antonides both doubled in the game.

Rockies hit 6 HRs, pound Reds CINCINNATI (AP) — Carlos Gonzalez tied his career high with three of Colorado’s six homers, and Troy Tulowitzki went 5 for 5 with a pair of homers Wednesday night, powering the Rockies to a 12-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The Rockies hadn’t hit six homers in a game since they had that many against the Marlins on July 4, 2008, according to STATS LLC. Gonzalez got Colorado’s splurge going with a solo

shot and a three-run drive off Pedro Villarreal (0-1), who was roughed up by one of the NL’s top offenses in his first big league start. Tulowitzki tied his career high with five hits, including a two-run homer and a solo shot. Todd Helton also homered as the Rockies piled up a season-high 20 hits, the most allowed by Cincinnati since 2009. The Reds came in with the second-best earned run average in the

NL. Jon Garland (4-6) gave up four runs all in the first and lasted six innings. Yankees 6, Indians 4 NEW YORK — CC Sabathia took a perfect game into the fifth inning, then hung on to make early homers by Travis Hafner and Brett Gardner hold up for the New York Yankees in a 6-4 win over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday. Sabathia gave up seven hits and struck out nine in

his first complete game of the year for New York, which swept the Indians in three games to finish a homestand that began with two losses to the Mets and a 1-2 series against Boston. The Indians were swept in their only visit to the Bronx last season, too. The left-hander went the distance and spared the Yankees bullpen after their top two relievers had pitched on consecutive nights.

Division III


Tippecanoe’s Allison Sinning runs the 3,200 at the Division I regional meet at Welcome Stadium.

Devils ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 of them taking aim at spots on the podium. The 4x800 team has the fourth-best time going into Friday’s race, but with the Devils’ attention to detail — particularly an oft-ignored part of distance relays, the handoffs — it still has room to improve on its already-a-school-record time. “We’re feeling really good about the 4x800,” Crawford said. “That (attention to handoffs) probably comes from my time as a sprints coach earlier in my career. The whole point of a relay is to get the stick around the track as fast as possible. But if you’re stumbling or looking back or anything during a handoff, you’re losing time. And with the talent of this group and where we’ll be at on Friday, tenths of a second are miles.” But with the seniorheavy group teaming up with the freshman Poynter — and the fact that both Wharton and Koch have state experience already — the Devils won’t be awestruck. “Mitchell is running with a senior-level group,” Crawford said. “If he was teamed up with underclassmen, he might be in awe. But I don’t think he’ll be shook up at all.” Goodness knows Wharton won’t be. The

senior has been at state all four seasons in his high school career, finished as the runner-up in last year’s 3,200 race and won a state championship during cross country season in the fall. He comes into Saturday’s race with the second-best time from the regional round at 9:20.35. Chardon’s Nick Elswick has the best at 9:14.09. “With Sam, we just have to put him on the track and let him do his thing,” Crawford said. The same goes for Sinning. A transfer student from Arkansas, the junior already placed at the state cross country meet in the fall. “Allison is finding another gear right now,” Crawford said. “I’m pretty sure this is her first time to a state track meet, but she does have that cross country experience.” Droesch, a junior, will also be making his first trip. And while he’s going in with a 6-2 height from the regional, Crawford says that that’s misleading — which suits Droesch just fine. “Looking at what’s coming in, there are guys at 6-8,” Crawford said. “But our region’s heights were low due to the rain, so I think it’s a level playing field. Andy has as good a chance as anyone.” Just like the rest of the Devils.

■ CONTINUED FROM 13 Troy is about as solid as it comes with that.” Cron set personal bests in the 110 and 300 Saturday at the regional. He qualified for state in both events last season, as well. Siefring is no stranger to state herself, having made it twice when she was at Russia and this year with Covington. The junior is hoping to brush off her disqualification in the 100 hurdles at regional and bring home a state title in the 300. She currently has the fastest time in the state in the event. “She’s feeling good,” Moore said. “The 300 is her strong event anyway. It will be just about being clean in that race too, and putting all she has into that race. I think she has a really good shot.” Shell, who broke the Covington High School record in the 3,200 at the first meet of the season, continued her postseason dominance, winning the 3,200 at regional, the same as she did a week prior at district. “I mean, I guess you’re supposed to say no,” said Moore when asked if he expected this much out of Shell in her freshman year. “But at the first meet of the season, she came out and broke the school record. “There are definitely girls that are coming in faster at state. For her, the last couple weeks it was all about running smarter for the first four or five laps, then controlling pace. I think she’ll enjoy Saturday, going up against some really good competition. She’ll have to get out a little faster, but I think it will be a good test for her.” Those, however, aren’t the only Buccs making the trip to Columbus. Senior Tara Snipes will be making a return to state for the second straight year in the 800. Snipes, who finished runner-up at regional (2:16.74), enters the state meet with one of the fastest times in the state. “Tara is running better now than she did last year,” Moore said. “She did a 2:18 at district to get out, then went against some tough competition at regional and ran a 2:16. She wants to get down to 2:15 and I think she can do it. I think (Meg) Westerheide (Ft. Loramie) has the best time in the state and Tara is right behind her going in. She needs to run a smart race,

Bethel’s Andrew Hurst (left) will run in the 800 Saturday at the Division III state meet.


Covington’s Jackie Siefring runs the 300 hurdles during Saturday’s Division III regional meet in Piqua. it’s all about staying under control in the first lap.” Dalton Bordelon also advanced to state with a third-place finish in the 300 hurdles. Ryan Craft — the school record holder in the event (6-4.75) — will be competing in the boys long jump, earning a trip to state with a jump of 6-2 at regional. Craft, Brandon Magee, Alex Schilling and Dustin Fickert will compete in the 4x400 relay. At regional, the quartet ran a time of 3:28.58 to finish fourth. There is also the possibility of Lane White, who qualified for state in three events last season, returning to the team to run at state. “Early in the season we were top in the state, we were the first team under 3:30 (at the Miami County Invitational),” Moore said. “At the rate were going, if we get Lane back I think they can get 3:25, which would put us right in the mix at state.” • Melvin, Dunivan Return Miami East sprinter Corrine Melvin and thrower Leah Dunivan are back at it again. Melvin, who placed second in the 100 and third in the 200 at the Division III regional, will be competing in two events at Jesse Owens Stadium, while Dunivan, a three-time state qualifier, earned another state berth in the shot put by placing third at regional. “Both Corrine and Leah have left their mark on the track program,” Miami East coach Bruce Vanover said. “They’ve set a bar for other kids to say ‘I want to break

■ National Basketball Association

records.’” That may be the case, but both will enter Friday’s meet with something to prove. Melvin, who is healthier now than ever, returns to state for the fourth consecutive year in the 100. This year, however, is the first time she’s done it in the 200. “Corrine has made it four years now, and that’s very impressive for a young lady to do,” Vanover said. “She set the school record as a freshman at 12.59 seconds (100), turned around and broke it again at 12.54. Then as a senior at regional, she ran 12.59 again. Over four years, she’s stayed very consistent. This is her fourth year going to state in 100. The last two years — and she and I were talking about this the other day — she was injured running with pulled hamstring and groin. I mean we were going in to see the trainers every year at state track.” Vanover said he hopes she ends her career in a big way. Along with the goal of landing on the podium, Vanover thinks Melvin has a realistic shot at breaking the Miami East High School record in the 200. “The record in the 200 is 25.99 seconds, and she did a 26.27 at regional, and that’s with her running in four finals,” Vanover said. “I’m hoping Corrine breaks that record at state.” Dunivan is another record-breaking athlete for the Viking track team. She holds school records in the high jump (5-5), the shot put (39-10) and the 100 hurdles, a record that was previously held by her aunt (16.33 seconds).

“When Leah came in, the high jump record was 4-10,” Vanover said. “She’s put it at 5-5. She shattered the shot record as a freshman, set it at 39-10. I know she wants to break 40. Also broke hurdle record held by her aunt, and she only ran that event three or four times.” Dunivan, however, was disappointed by not making it to state in the high jump. But she will enter Columbus in hopes of landing on the podium once again. “She didn’t make high jump, and she was disappointed by that because she absolutely loves that event,”Vanover said. “She was really hoping to get out in that, but once she didn’t do it, she was on to the shot put. “For her, she would love to hit 40 feet, and get back on podium. I think that’s her mentality.” • Who Else Made It … Bradford’s Shay LaFollette returns to state for the third consecutive year in the 100 hurdles. At regional, she finished second in a time of 15.44 seconds. Troy Christian freshman Meredith Haddad, the district champion in the long jump, advanced to state with a jump of 17-0.5 at regional, where she finished second. Lehman’s usuals Justin Stewart (400) and sprinter Sarah Titterington (400, 200, 100) will compete at state once again. The pair will be joined by multipleevent qualifier Brad Montgomery, who placed second in the shot and discus Saturday. Bethel’s Andrew Hurst will be competing in the 800 at state. Hurst placed fourth in the event at the regional meet, running a time of 1:56.37.

■ Tennis

LeBron has shot at payback Nadal, Djokovic MIAMI (AP) — Before reaching the top of basketball, LeBron James was run over by the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs swept James’ Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2007 NBA Finals, so long ago that the winning game plan focused on exploiting James’ weaknesses. Those are nearly impossible to find now, and James essentially warned the Spurs that they shouldn’t bother looking. The Spurs already know. “He’ll be a lot more of a problem than he was in ‘07, that’s for sure,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Wednesday. Tim Duncan told the beaten James minutes after that series that the league would someday belong to him, and he was right. The NBA’s MVP guided Miami

to last year’s championship and the league’s best record this season. Now the Spurs will try to take it back. But James is now the best player in the game, is surrounded by more talent in Miami than he ever had in Cleveland, and still carries the memory of the beating the Spurs laid on him six years ago. “I have something in me that they took in ‘07. Beat us on our home floor, celebrated on our home floor. I won’t forget that. You shouldn’t as a competitor. You should never forget that,” James said. He joined the Heat in 2010, experienced more finals failure a year later, then was finals MVP last year when Miami beat Oklahoma City in five games. Another title now

would put him halfway to the four that Duncan and Popovich have won together. “That’s what I’m here for,” James said. “I’m here to win championships, and you’re not always going to be on the successful side. I’ve seen it twice, not being on the successful side.” He was just 22 at the end of his fourth year in the league when he carried to the Cavs to their first finals appearance. But there were holes in his game, from an unreliable jump shot to an undeveloped post game, and the Spurs took advantage of every one of them. James shot 36 percent in the series, including a ghastly 10 for 30 in Game 4, and committed 23 turnovers. “Well, LeBron is a different player than he was in

‘07,” Popovich said. “That was like ancient history. He was basically a neophyte at the time, wondering how all this stuff worked and how it’s put together. We were very fortunate at that time to get him so early. But at this point he’s grown.” James wasn’t interested in discussing much of that series, but he recalled the way the Spurs’ strategy kept him from getting into the paint and dared him to shoot jumpers. There’s no blueprint now that would encourage a guy who made 56.5 percent of his shots this season to shoot the ball. “If you go under my pickand-roll now, I’m going to shoot. And I’m confident I’m going to make every last one of them,” James said. “I’m just more confident in my ability to shoot the ball.”

to meet in semi

PARIS (AP) — The ease with which Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic swept aside their quarterfinal opponents at the French Open was remarkably similar. Both men won in straight sets Wednesday, hardly challenged. Both earned 12 break points, Nadal converting seven, Djokovic five. Nadal’s serve was broken only once, Djokovic’s twice. In what amounted to heavy-duty practice sessions for the real test that lies ahead, Nadal needed 1 hour, 56 minutes to beat No. 9-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 in Court Philippe Chatrier, while a short walk away, Djokovic’s 6-3, 7-6 (5), 7-5

victory over No. 12 Tommy Haas in Court Suzanne Lenglen lasted just 17 minutes longer. Now comes the showdown everyone’s been anticipating since the field was set nearly two weeks ago: A Djokovic vs. Nadal semifinal Friday that will have the feel of a final, and not only because they met for the championship at Roland Garros a year ago. “A lot of people in the tennis world are looking to the matchup coming up with Rafa and Novak,” said Haas, who at 35 was the oldest French Open quarterfinalist since 1971. “I’ll definitely be watching.” Who wouldn’t?

Father’s Day: a well-established tradition Even though Father’s Day is a more recent innovation, it is now celebrated with as much pride and love as Mother’s Day.
