Troy BOE adds 2 administrators

In Monday’s edition of the Troy Daily News, the Newspapers In Education page contained a copy of the Pledge of Allegiance that omitted the words “under God” from the pledge. The words “under God” have been a part of the Pledge of Allegiance since 1954 and omitting those two words from the pledge was an unintentional mistake. The Troy Daily News deeply regrets the error and apologizes to anyone who may have been offended.

Troy hires new treasurer, athletic director BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer After a few light-hearted jokes about their former place of employment, the Troy City Schools Board of Education added two former Piqua City Schools administrators to its roster at

TROY Monday’s regular meeting. Jeffrey Price was tapped as Troy City Schools’ new treasurer for the district. Price will serve as interim treasure beginning July 1 before beginning his three year contract on Aug. 1. Price previous-

ly has served as Piqua City Schools’ treasurer since 2004. Price’s annual salary was set at $120,000. Craig Jones will step down as June 28 and will serve as treasurer for Dayton Public Schools. Jones thanked the board for their support during his two years at Troy City Schools. He said the

decision to serve Dayton Public Schools was to return to his hometown to give back to his community. Along with Price, Troy City Schools hired David Palmer as the district’s athletic director. Palmer formerly served as Piqua City School’s athletic director. He takes over as the district’s athletic coordinator after Jeff Sakal’s

Last weekend I celebrated my birthday. I won’t tell you exactly how old I am, but I will give you a couple subtle hints: My date of birth is 6-7-89 and I’m almost-but-not-quite a quarter century old. Like everyone always says forlornly, birthdays aren’t quite as exciting once you pass the 21 benchmark. What’s the next milestone? Reaching the insurance-mandated age for renting a car? How lame.

The journey home isn’t always an easy one for Kris Dielman — but it’s always worth it. “On the plane ride, my youngest got (sick) — and we were running out of diapers and running out of wipes on the plane,” Dielman said Tuesday morning at Troy Memorial Stadium, the first day of the annual Trojan Football Camp featuring Kris Dielman. “It’s always an adventure when you travel with little kids. But it’s worth it to get back home.” Dielman — a Troy High School graduate and recently retired Pro Bowl offensive lineman for the San Diego Chargers — is living with his wife and two young sons in San Diego. He’s back in town all week to help Troy football coach Scot Brewer and his staff run the camp that bears his name — an opportunity on which he said he’d never pass. “I love coming back here,” Dielman said. “Coming home never gets old for me.

Apple revamps look of iPhone, iPad software SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Apple is throwing out most of the real-world graphical cues from its iPhone and iPad software, like the casino-green “felt” of its Game Center app, in what it calls the biggest update since the iPhone’s launch in 2007. The new operating system, called iOS 7, strives for a clean, simple, translucent look. Apple is redesigning all its applications and icons to conform to the new look, driven by long-time hardware design chief Jony Ive. Apple demonstrated the new software at the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco on Monday. The new design direction was widely expected and will show up on iPhones, iPad and iPod Touches this fall, the company said. — Staff and wire reports

Mumford • CONTINUED FROM 1 New Orleans as part of its Summer Stampede tour. According to Troy Main Street’s Executive Director Karin Manovich, the cancellation of the shows has not affected the “Gentlemen of the Road” tour scheduled for Troy on Aug. 30 and 31. “We haven’t heard any official news,” Manovich said Tuesday. Manovich said members of the tour’s production team, Jam Productions, were in Troy Tuesday continuing to prepare for the stopover on Labor Day as planned. Mumford & Sons’ website stated: “We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour.” Regarding Dwane’s health, the website stated: “Our friend and bandmate Ted has been feeling unwell for a few days, and yesterday he was taken to a hospital to receive emergency treatment. The scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation. Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery. “Sadly we have to postpone three upcoming headline shows planned for this week in Dallas on Tuesday 6/11, Woodlands on Wednesday 6/12, and New Orleans on Thursday 6/13. All dates will be rescheduled and will be announced as soon as we can; all tickets for this week’s events will be honoured at their rescheduled dates. We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour.” Manovich said Troy’s “Gentlemen of the Road” tour is “full speed ahead.” “We didn’t have any official information on its impact here,” Manovich said. “Everything is in the planning stage.” At Monday’s board of education meeting, the Troy City Schools’ Board of Education also adopted a resolution regarding the

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

Keynote speaker this year will be Robert Shook, himself a veteran. The ceremony will take about 45 minutes. The public is invited to attend this event and bring flags to be retired. Worn flags may be dropped off in specially marked receptacles at any time at WACO Field, 1865 S. County Road 25-A, south of Troy; or at American Legion Post 43, South Market Street, Troy.

district’s policy for alcohol use on school property. The resolution reads: “That notwithstanding the foregoing policy, this board may by resolution make an exception to the prohibition of the passion or use of alcoholic beverages on school property upon the written request from the sponsor of a community event, which meets all the of the following criteria: A. The community event for which the waiver is sought will provide a significant economic benefit to the Troy community. B. A written proposal is presented to the board which addresses in detail the means and manner in which the possession and use of alcoholic beverages on school property will be monitored and controlled. C. The sponsor of the event provides assurances which are satisfactory to this board that allowing the possession and use of alcoholic beverages on school property will not adversely affect the overall educational mission of this school district.” The school district purchased Troy Memorial Stadium from the city of Troy three years ago, and will be the site for the Labor Day weekend music festival featuring Mumford & Sons on Aug. 30 and 31. It is the first time in the history of the site for alcohol sales on the property. The event is being hosted by the Troy Main Street organization. Board member Joyce Reives asked if there were any other significant events on the horizon that would need to use the resolution. Superintendent Eric Herman said if there were another event to be held that would seek permission to sell alcohol, it would most likely be for the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center. “We’ll be able to review each proposal on a caseby-case basis,” Herman said. According to the TroyHayner Cultural Center’s website, its policy currently states: as a general rule, alcoholic beverages are not permitted at the Center. Wine or champagne punch may be served only at private parties, receptions and weddings. The Troy City Schools was bequeathed the historic home by Mary Jane Hayner as a gift to the community. Board member Dave Heffner said the wording of the resolution “still gives us the discretion.” President Doug Trostle said the resolution now allows clarity for future events for the sale of alcohol rather than just distribution like a wine or champagne function by the sponsor of the event.

• CONTINUED FROM 1 retirement. He begins his two-year contract on Aug. 1. Director of pupil services Paul Gibboney also announced his retirement at the board meeting. Gibboney served the Troy City Schools for 25 years. “I worked with a lot of great people over the years, a lot of them are in this room,” Gibboney said. Gibboney said his retirement is a “melancholy and sad” announcement, but he said he is looking forward to future endeavors. Gibboney’s last day with the district is June 30. • In other news: The board approved the district’s evaluation of professional staff and teachers policy. The policy complies with the changes in the Ohio Department of Education’s teacher evaluation system (OTES) which rates teachers by observations and student test scores. The observation portion counts as 50 percent of the teacher’s evaluation and student test scores or learning objectives will count as the other 50 percent of the teacher’s ranking of: accomplished, proficient, developing and ineffective. The ranking will be submitted to the ODE each year. Troy City Schools’ human resource director Marion Stout said the 2013-2014 school year will be a learning process and the district used a committee of teachers and administrators to convey the changes to each school building. “We’ll implement it slow, do it right,”

Herman said. The board also approved two waiver days for teachers and staff to help implement and understand the new Ohio Teacher Evaluation System. The dates of the waiver days, which students will have the day off, will be Aug. 30 and Feb. 14, 2014. Outgoing treasurer Jones reported that the district saw an increase in revenue of $93,000 over estimates for the close-out of the fiscal year to date. Jones also reported expenditures were $200,000 more than anticipated due to an increase of health insurance claims. “We will continue to monitor this through June,” Jones said. The board accepted an asphalt replacement bid for the Troy Junior High and Forest Elementary School’s property from Ticon Paving Inc. for $136,922.67. The asphalt project includes the Ferguson Drive field lot as well, Herman said. The project will paid for through the district’s permanent improvement funds. Board member Joyce Reives asked if the bid was lower than anticipated, which Treasurer Jones said it was lower, but it was likely due to the size of the project. The board also took the first step to seek the renewal of the district’s fiveyear 1.1-mills permanent improvement levy to be on the November 5 ballot. The board approved the resolution to declare it necessary to levy a renewal tax with a request to the county auditor to certify.

Chalk • CONTINUED FROM 1 Beginning Monday of last week, the pro-life outreach group began writing prolife messages downtown, including in front of the city building before the Friday workday, said Stand True President Bryan Kemper. The group has its missionary office on Cherry Street. After receiving complaints, the city used a back truck — a utility vehicle used for waterline and sewer line repairs — to wash the chalk off Friday morning. Titterington stressed that the removal of the chalk did not pertain to the specific message but rather the fact that a couple businesses complained. “There’s no prohibition about it. But just the fact that our building is open to anybody and everybody, we were concerned that we may get people asking about it or complaining about it,” he said, adding that the cost to remove the chalk was minor. Stand True missionaries also wrote

messages in front of city hall before Saturday morning, but the writing was removed by the rain on Sunday before the workweek. Kemper said the outreach group is not targeting the city building, as it was one of several locations for the messages. He added that he was surprised by the city’s response to the sidewalk messages. “I was kind of shocked that they would use a city water truck. That seems like a waste of city money for a free speech activity. If we had written something vulgar like the ‘f’ word, that’s different. But we use no vulgarities,” Kemper said. “We’re going to get our message out and be polite about it.” Stand True volunteers will chalk the sidewalks again once the weather forecast does not show rain for a few days, he added. Karin Manovich, executive director of Troy Main Street, said she received an inquiry from a business owner about the messages, which she referred to the city.

ACLU sues over NSA phone records program NEW YORK (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union sued the Obama administration Tuesday, asking the government to halt a phone-tracking program that collects the telephone records of millions of Americans and that it says is unconstitutional. The lawsuit was filed in federal court in New York by the American Civil Liberties Union, along with the New York Civil Liberties Union. “The practice is akin to snatching every American’s address book with annotations detailing whom we

spoke to, when we talked, for how long, and from where,” the lawsuit says. “It gives the government a comprehensive record of our associations and public movements, revealing a wealth of detail about our familial, political, professional, religious, and intimate associations.” The lawsuit, which names as defendants the heads of national intelligence as well as the agencies they lead, including the National Security Agency, the FBI, the Department of Defense and the Department of Justice also asks the court to purge phone records collected under the program, claiming the government

action violates the First and Fourth Amendments of the Constitution. The Department of Justice did not immediately return a call seeking comment. President Barack Obama has defended the program and says privacy must be balanced with security. Last week, Britain’s Guardian newspaper reported the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court on April 25 issued an order granting the NSA permission to collect telephone records of millions of Verizon customers. The order was good until July 19, the newspaper said.

Iraq increasingly drawn into Syrian battlefield BAGHDAD (AP) — Signs are growing that stretches of Iraq and Syria are morphing into a single battlefield for militants, exacerbating Iraq’s slide into renewed deadly chaos a year and a half after U.S. troops pulled out. Iraqi border posts along the Syrian frontier are coming under attack, and Syrian truck drivers have been singled out and shot inside Iraq. Syrian soldiers earlier this year sought refuge across the border, only to be massacred by alQaida. Combat-hardened Iraqi fighters, meanwhile, are crisscrossing the frontier. Al-Qaida-linked Sunni militants are cooperating with hard-line Islamists among the Syrian rebels, while Iraqi Shiite fighters are joining militiamen from Lebanon’s Hezbollah to fight alongside forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad’s Iranian-backed U.S. officials regime. believe Iranian arms are still being shuttled to Damascus through Iraqi airspace. “What is going on in Syria has a big, clear impact on us … especially since there are attempts to move the battle to Iraq,” said Ali al-Moussawi, spokesman for Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. It’s happening as the deadly drumbeat of violence is growing louder across Iraq. Nearly 2,000 lives have been violently snuffed out across the country since the start of April. The extent of the killing hasn’t been this bad for half a decade, when Iraq’s last tip toward civil war was easing and American troops were still here to help keep the peace. Attackers killed more than 60 people in a relentless wave of bombings on Monday. Another nine were slain Tuesday. “The events in the past three or four months prove that the violence in Iraq and Syria are two sides of the same coin,” said Haider Ayed, a 35-year-old math

Signs are growing that stretches of Iraq and Syria are morphing into a single battlefield for militants, exacerbating Iraq’s slide into renewed deadly chaos a decade after Saddam Hussein’s fall. teacher and father of two in Baghdad’s southwestern Bayaa neighborhood. “We are going through a very dangerous period.” It’s a worrying trend for the United States, which is mulling whether to arm Syria’s rebels even as it adapts to a new relationship with Iraq following a divisive war that claimed nearly 4,500 American and more than 100,000 Iraqi lives. The spokesman for the American Embassy in Baghdad, Frank Finver, said the U.S. shares Iraqi government concerns about the level of violence in Syria, as well as about extremists who are trying to capitalize on the situation in Syria and incite violence inside Iraq. The U.S., Finver added, is working with allies and moderate members of the Syrian opposition to isolate extremists and “ensure their violent and divisive ideology does not take root in Syria or spill over into Iraq.” Iraq officially remains

neutral in the Syrian conflict. Al-Maliki has repeatedly called for a peaceful, political solution to the crisis, though he has also warned that a victory for the rebels would unleash sectarian war in Iraq and Lebanon. On Tuesday, Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari insisted that Iraq has no official or military role in the civil war, and said Baghdad does not encourage the movement of any Iraqi fighters to Syria. Still, the cross-border violence continues. An Iraqi border guard was killed and two others were wounded Sunday in clashes with fighters the Interior Ministry said were members of the Free Syrian Army rebel group. Border guards thwarted two other attempts by gunmen and smugglers to sneak into Iraq from Syria, officials said. The long and porous border runs along Iraq’s Sunni-dominated provinces of Anbar and Ninevah, and was a key

conduit for arms and alQaida fighters in the years following the 2003 U.S.-led invasion. Centuries-old cultural and tribal affiliations span the loosely defended desert frontier. A Western diplomat in Baghdad described Iraq’s control of the border with Syria as limited. “With all the air power and surveillance the (U.S.led) coalition had, it did not fully control that border,” said the diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak publicly. “On the border area there is a nexus of smuggling and informal links and trade.” Sadoun al-Shaalan, a provincial councilman in Anbar province, said clashes along the border between Iraqi forces and gunmen from Syria are growing more frequent. He attributed the uptick to a rise in smugglers profiting from the war as well as insurgents shuttling fighters back and forth. Iraqi army units

deployed near urban centers within the province where anti-government sentiment is strong are often unwilling to confront insurgents deep in the desert because they lack sufficient aerial support and experience in the harsh, remote environment, he added. “Most of the time, the gunmen and smugglers have better weapons and equipment than our units,” he said. Iraq’s isolated western desert was the scene of the country’s deadliest incident of spillover from the Syrian conflict a March attack in which 51 Syrian soldiers were killed. The Syrian troops had retreated into Iraq after their border post was attacked by rebels, and were later ambushed, along with their Iraqi military escorts, in a highly organized assault involving explosives, gunfire and rocket-propelled grenades unleashed by al-Qaida’s Iraq arm. The militant group, known as the Islamic State of Iraq, linked the mission directly to the conflict in Syria, saying it planned the raid following “the blessed operations carried out by our brothers in Syria.” The group has since attempted to frame its cause as part of a broader cross-border battle. Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi went so far as to announce a merger in April with Syria’s Jabhat al-Nusra, the most powerful rebel force fighting to topple Assad. Al-Nusra leader Abu Mohammad al-Golani quickly distanced himself from that takeover attempt. Al-Qaida’s central leader, Ayman al-Zawahri,

has tried to end the squabbling. He released a statement this week ordering the two groups to remain separate and not to attack one another, while saying both of their leaders could keep their posts. Syrians were also targeted in Iraq earlier this month when gunmen set up a fake checkpoint on a main highway linking Baghdad to Syria and Jordan. The gunmen killed three Syrian truck drivers and burned their rigs. Al-Shaalan, the provincial council member, said the attackers managed to operate their checkpoint for a full hour and then got away with several hostages without any resistance from the Iraqi military. Anthony Cordesman, a longtime observer of Iraq as an analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, questions the lack of American attention on Iraq, particularly in light of Washington’s efforts to isolate Iran, Syria’s main patron. “For all the current attention to Syria, Iraq is the larger and more important state,” he wrote in a commentary this month. A slide toward civil war inside Iraq will push its majority Shiites closer to Iran and Syria, he predicted. “If Assad survives and the Arab Gulf states continue to isolate Iraq, the largely token U.S. presence in Iraq is likely to become irrelevant and Iraq is likely to become part of a Shiite axis going from to Iran,” Lebanon Cordesman wrote. “If Assad falls … Iran seems likely to do everything it can to replace its ties to Syria with influence in Iraq.”

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Arizona Republic on Eric Holder needing to go: During his May 23 speech on national security, President Barack Obama promised to chat with Attorney General Eric Holder about reviewing his policies for investigating the news media. “I am troubled by the possibility that leak investigations may chill the investigative journalism that holds government accountable,” the president said. It is hard to imagine an assessment more divorced from reality. The still-developing story of the Obama administration’s willingness to steamroll First Amendment rights of a free press has blown well past the stage at which even the most thorough, chin-pulling “review” of policies is likely to change

anything. This debacle requires a change of Justice Department personnel. At the top. This administration has demonstrated, emphatically, that it has no problem whatsoever with putting a chill on investigative journalism. … Justice guidelines require subpoenas of media records to be as narrowly drawn as possible, according to Arizona State University journalism professor Leonard Downie Jr., writing in the Washington Post, which he formerly edited. The AP warrants captured thousands of calls. The media company being investigated should be given reasonable notice of the intrusion. The AP had none. And the investigation — again, according to policy — must strike a balance between the public’s

right to know and national security. The Justice investigations of AP and Rosen struck no such balance. … The disturbing Internal Revenue Service scandal is also part and parcel to the administration’s control-freak behavior. And every bit as much a threat to free speech. Whether dictated from the top or created by spontaneous combustion, the IRS harassment of conservative groups prior to the 2012 elections stifled speech. The administration may not have issued directives to IRS apparatchiks, but it certainly set the tone for what would occur. In 2008, President-elect Obama promised the most transparent administration in history. That would be a policy worth reviewing.

Another memorable birthday comes and goes Last weekend I celebrated my birthday. I won’t tell you exactly how old I am, but I will give you a couple subtle hints: My date of birth is 6-7-89 and I’m almost-but-not-quite a quarter century old. Like everyone always says forlornly, birthdays aren’t quite as exciting once you pass the 21 benchmark. What’s the next milestone? Reaching the insurance-mandated age for renting a car? How lame. In fact, my 21st birthday was indeed the most memorable one yet, but not for the reason you’d expect. I’ll have to provide a little background leading up to it ... Memorial Day weekend of my junior year of college, I left school a couple weeks early for an internship in New York. The day I moved into NYU housing was probably the most terrifying time of my life. I was the only student from Ohio and had not visited NYC since I was 6. Plus, due to a staffing error, I was told I had no roommates and therefore had a four-per-

Natalie Knoth Troy Daily News Columnist son apartment to myself. Sounds like a dream, but boy, it was completely unnerving. I was a mess. Thankfully, the next day a girl in my internship program moved in with me, after staff realized their error. Hallelujah, I thought. Now I won’t die of loneliness and get eaten by cockroaches. Anyway, Jasmin and I soon became friends and bonded with the 20 or so other interns in the program, attending journalism forums leading up to our first day of work, which happened to fall on my birthday. I wasn’t thinking about my 21st at all. I had bigger issues to think about, like nav-

igating the subway system and not being horrendously late for work So Sunday night, on the eve of workday No. 1, I decided to get ready for bed early to be fully charged and ready to take on the world. Just as I had my pajamas on, I heard a knock at the door. “Natalie, I forgot my key!” Jasmin said in a panicked voice. I nonchalantly went to let her in. But when I opened the door, I was greeted by nearly all 20 interns and shouts of, “Surprise! Happy Birthday Natalie!” I should have been thrilled. After all, these people who knew me for only a week cared enough to surprise me on my special day. But instead, I was mortified and immediately slammed the door, leaving them standing outside. “Oh my gosh, I can’t believe it!” I shrieked. Why had I decided to shower and put on my pajamas and glasses so early? How embarrassing. After some cajoling, I let them all in. I didn’t realize it

before, but one of them was carrying a cake with lit candles. “You almost burnt my face off!” Zac said, referring to my slamming the door in his face. He still reminds me of that fact. In the end, my 21st birthday was memorable not because of any fancy drinks or unique venue or must-have gifts or anything. It was memorable because I was surrounded by people who, it turns out, really cared about me and became really good friends, during our 10-week internships and beyond. We all still keep in touch, thanks to cell phones and social media. The birthdays since then have been fun and exciting (this year’s was fantastic), but that summer in New York will probably always be my favorite. I had expected to be alone, but I certainly was not. I’ll never forget how special they made me feel that day.

Police trying to stop protestors


A shopper walks past a sign advertising a shop that sells commemorative coins with the face of Nelson Mandela in the Sandton City shopping centre in Johannesburg, South Africa Tuesday. Doctors are doing all they can to improve Nelson Mandela's health as the 94-year-old icon spent a fourth day in the hospital for a recurring lung infection.

Mandela’s mortality Country worries about ailing leader JOHANNESBURG (AP) — The desk is spotless and books neatly line the shelves in Nelson Mandela’s office at a Johannesburg-based foundation that carries his name, but the former South African president and anti-apartheid leader hasn’t worked there for years. The meticulously preserved room is one of many tributes to the legacy of a former prisoner who became so revered for his efforts to reconcile a racially divided nation that many South Africans cannot bring themselves to speak openly about the possibility of his death. That reluctance is gradually eroding as the 94year-old receives treatment for a recurring lung infection, spending a fourth day in a Pretoria hospital on Tuesday. President Jacob Zuma called Mandela’s condition “very serious” but said he has stabilized, in an interview with state broadcaster SABC. Prayers are pouring in for Mandela, adding to a mood of urgency about his deteriorating health that has been compounded by a series of hospital stays in recent months. The description of Mandela as “ravaged by time,” in a statement from a foundation led by retired archbishop Desmond Tutu and his wife, speaks to the fragile state of a man who is so mighty in stature. Concerns about his health already had been heightened in recent weeks after a video broadcast on state television in April showed him silent and unresponsive, even when President

Jacob Zuma tried to hold his hand. “He was a very fruitful fighter, but he’s only human,” said Thabiso Masemola, a 21-year-old student. “He’s reached a point in life where he needs to rest. Let him go, let him be. He’s finished his purpose in life.” Such a view is gaining currency as South Africans become uneasy with the protracted decline of Mandela, who endured 27 years in prison during white minority rule and became the first black president in all-race elections in 1994. At the other end of the spectrum is a stubborn hope that this larger-than-life figure will somehow defy the inevitable. The aversion to blunt talk of Mandela’s eventual demise stems partly from traditional respect for the living, but also from adulation in a country that put Mandela’s image on its banknotes and erected busts and statues in his likeness. The intensity of emotion among some South Africans is an indicator of the outpouring of feeling that will accompany Mandela’s passing, whenever it comes. Mzinkosi Tantsi, a driver for a neighbor of Mandela in the Johannesburg neighborhood of Houghton, said it had been a “blessing” to shake the former president’s hand. “I see him as my father,” said 12-year-old Kutlwano Hlabana, whose school group was visiting the Apartheid Museum, which documents the repressive system of racial segregation and the fight against it. The Johannesburg site

invites visitors to experience a taste of apartheid’s arbitrariness by choosing between two entrances labeled “Whites” and “NonWhites.” For Johannesburg resident Mokgadi Mabuti, Mandela’s sacrifice and contribution to reconciliation amount to a psychological balm. She struggles with the idea of his departure even though South Africa, for all its inequality and other social problems, is relatively stable. “I’m worried about what might happen when he’s dead. Most of the things that have happened in South Africa are because of him, so I’m not ready to let him go,” she said. Mabuti would rather skirt the subject of Mandela’s eventual end, quoting a biblical passage about the impact of words. “The tongue is very powerful. What you say with your tongue can speak into the future,” she said. “So it’s not good that they should speak of him as if he doesn’t exist anymore.” Cashing in is on the minds of some in Qunu, the rural village in the Eastern Cape province where Mandela grew up. The Sowetan newspaper reported that a number of people were preparing to rent rooms in their homes on the assumption that there would be a big influx of visitors if he dies. After his retirement from the presidency, Mandela regularly worked from an office in the recently refurbished building that houses the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory, which promotes the former leader’s values. The office, which is open by appointment, resembles the kind of

hallowed memorial usually reserved for those no longer among the living. There are framed photographs of Mandela in healthier times with his wife, Graca Machel, former U.N. chief Kofi Annan, fellow activist Walter Sisulu, who died a decade ago, and others. His volumes include the Quran, “A Briefer History of Time” by Stephen Hawking and a book about leadership. A boxing glove, cricket bat and a British police helmet are among the gifts on display. Glass cases at the center show penned messages in books given to Mandela from people including Nadine Gordimer, a South African author and winner of the Nobel literature prize in 1991. She wrote that the antiapartheid leader had read a smuggled copy of her then-banned novel, “Burger’s Daughter,” while held at the Robben Island prison. “You most likely didn’t bring the book back with you when you returned to us, and lived magnificently, untiringly, leading the Struggle, so I thought I’d like to replace the ‘imprisoned’ copy,” Gordimer wrote. Cornel West, an American civil rights activist, addressed his book, “Democracy Matters,” to: “Bro’ Nelson Mandela.” In his autobiography, “Long Walk to Freedom,” Mandela summarized a life of struggle: “I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.” Now he is climbing the last hill.

want to continue with the incidents I say: ‘It’s over.’ As of now we have no tolerance for them,” Erdogan said. “Not only will we end the actions, we will be at the necks of the provocateurs and terrorists, and no one will get away with it,” he added. The unrest which has spread to 78 cities across Turkey has been inspired in part by what some see as Erdogan’s increasingly authoritarian style of governing and his perceived attempts to impose a religious and conservative lifestyle in a country with secular laws. Erdogan, a devout Muslim, says he is committed to Turkey’s secular laws and denies charges of autocracy. Yet as he defended his tough stance, he gave critics little hope of a shift in his position. “Were we supposed to kneel before them and say please remove your pieces of rags? They can call me harsh, but this Tayyip Erdogan won’t change,” he said. He was referring to the banners and posters that activists had hung from a building and a monument at Taksim Square, which police removed. Erdogan spoke before a meeting with President Abdullah Gul to discuss the protests, their first since they erupted. Contrary to Erdogan, Gul has defended people’s rights to express democratic rights. Selin Akuner, a volunteer at a makeshift infirmary at a0 Gezi Park, said some 300 people had sought treatment, mostly for the effects of tear gas. Nearly 50 people had been hit by rubber bullets or gas canisters, 12 had head traumas and about eight had injured legs or arms, she said. The governor’s office said one demonstrator and one police officer were hospitalized. Erdogan has called for major pro-government rallies to be held in Ankara and Istanbul this weekend. “We are not trying to say look we are greater, we are more populous. We are going to the rallies to ensure that the voice of silent masses is heard,” he said. The government announced late Monday that Erdogan would meet with some of the Gezi Park protesters on Wednesday, but that authorities would not allow the “illegal” demonstrations to continue.

ISTANBUL (AP) — Riot police firing tear gas and water cannons re-entered Istanbul’s Taksim Square on Tuesday night after defiant protesters swarmed back in by the thousands. It was the latest sign that Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government may have run out of patience after 12 days of unrest in Turkey’s largest city and beyond. Earlier in the day, he accused the protesters of sullying Turkey’s image, raising the possibility that he had ordered police to show no restraint in clearing Taksim Square. In the chaos of a confrontation that began about 8:45 p.m., several fires burned in the square and protesters exploded fireworks, threw stones and waved banners. As a phalanx of helmeted officers moved forward, water cannons doused a man in a wheelchair carrying a Turkish flag. Plainclothes officers in gas masks yanked down banners. For the police, the marching orders appeared to be: fire tear gas, advance, spray water cannons and peel back. Then, after the tear gas dissipated in the wind, the protesters again stepped into the void clanging fences, shooting fireworks, and erecting makeshift barricades. At one point, they set alight a huge bonfire in the middle of the square. Several people were being placed into ambulances during the clashes, which have trained an international spotlight on Turkey’s democracy. The protests have swelled from a peaceful demonstration first aimed to stop developers from cutting down trees in a park into nationwide disturbances. Earlier Tuesday, many of the protesters in Istanbul had fled into the adjacent Gezi Park, where hundreds have been camping out to stop developers from cutting down trees in the park. As police moved in, bulldozers began demolishing the barricades and the makeshift shelters. At the same time, Erdogan made it clear in Ankara, the capital, that he had come to the end of his patience with the protesters. “To those who … are at Taksim and elsewhere taking part in the demonstrations with sincere feelings, I call on you to leave those places and to end these incidents, and I send you my love. But for those who

Your best bet is to stay out of the situation Dear Annie: I have a friend who has a divorced daughter with two children. The ex-husband has a good job with the government. My friend is very strapped for money and sends as much as she can to the daughter. The daughter claims the ex-husband does not pay child support regularly. I feel the daughter should go to his employer about the child support. There are laws about this. But my friend and her daughter both believe this might cause him to lose his job. Then there would be no money coming at all. I disagree. I don't believe you can be fired for garnishment of wages. But talking to my friend is like talking to a wall. The new wrinkle is, the exhusband is about to remarry. I have known this guy since he was a teenager, and he is a fine man. I don't, however, have the same warm feelings toward my friend's daughter. Is there some way I can look into her claim about the child support without causing trouble? My friend is about to lose her house, and I don't think she should be giving away her money to her daughter. I realize this is none of my business, but watching the effect this has on my friend breaks my heart. — Just Concerned Dear Concerned: We cannot caution you enough to stay out of this. The mother may suspect her daughter is not telling her the truth and wants to give her the money anyway. The daughter may be perfectly honest about the child support, rendering your high opinion of the ex-husband unwarranted. And there could be other things going on of which you are unaware. If the daughter is not receiving child support, she can take the matter to the courts. We understand your concern, but no good can come from your snooping around. Dear Annie: My boyfriend and I have been dating for three years. This summer, we are planning to go camping with his family. They are religious and have strict morals, so my boyfriend says he will not sleep in the same tent with me. He argues that since they invited us on their camping trip, we should abide by their rules and expectations. However, I believe that since we're both adults and have been together for so long, it's our right to sleep together. Who's wrong? —Sleeping Alone Dear Sleeping: You are. These are his parents, and this is their camping trip. You not only should abide by their rules, but you should show them the kind of respect your boyfriend is showing by giving their sensitivities a priority when in their presence as their guests. Dear Annie: I'd like to agree with "Encino, Calif.," who needs a handicapped parking spot even though her disability is not visible. I am an amputee. In the winter, no one can see my prosthesis under my pants. I can walk faster than a lot of people with two good legs, but I periodically get a sore "leg" and have fallen several times. So I legally park in the handicapped spot. I have never had anyone openly direct a nasty comment toward me, but I sure have had my share of dirty looks. Someone once "reminded" me that I was in a handicapped spot, so I lifted up my pants leg. That shut him up. I would like to tell people that just because we don't look disabled doesn't mean we are not. Things beyond our control have happened to us. Also, to those of you who park in the handicapped spaces "just for a minute" to drop something off: I once had to cross a snowcovered parking lot in a wheelchair when the handicapped spaces were full of people without proper stickers or license plates.

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:


Is it really worth it to pay for them to cut it? Dear Readers: If you are a busy, working mom or dad, it’s quick and easy to buy fruits and vegetables that are already washed, cut up and ready to use. It does save time in the kitchen, but it costs more to buy produce, vegetables or shredded cheeses in these prepackaged servings. If you are on a budget and are watching your money, these items can put a big dent in how much you spend on food. Pre-cut costs a lot more than produce you buy whole! You are paying for the labor, packaging required and transportation to stores while keeping it fresh. Is

Hints from Heloise Columnist the cost worth the time you are saving by staying out of the kitchen? It may or may not be. There are some examples where buying ready-to-use may be cheaper. For example: pomegranate juice. The juice is more costly to make yourself because of the number of pomegranates need-

ed to get the same amount that you buy ready-to-drink. I’ve tried this, and it’s a process! With fresh pomegranates available only a few months of the year, the only way to buy the seeds or juice the rest of the year is prepackaged. During your next shopping trip, comparison-shop, and check the price difference. — Heloise SEPARATING EGGS Dear Heloise: Is it better to separate eggs while they are cold or when they are roomtemperature? — Cindy L., via email Good question! Most food experts agree that a cold egg is

easier to separate, because the yolk won’t “break” when cold. However, most recipes call for room-temperature eggs, so what do you do? Separate the eggs while cold and cover with plastic until they are room-temperature. — Heloise SIMPLE SALSA Dear Heloise: Ever needed some quick salsa? Here is my hint: Drain the liquid from a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies. Take a small electric drink mixer and run it up and down a few times in the can. Voilà! Instant salsa. Also, the mixer fits nicely in the can, so you don’t mess up another dish. — Roger S. in Texas



Wednesday, June 12, 2013













BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, June 13, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a lovely day! Enjoy flirtations, and have fun schmoozing with others. What a great day to party. Accept all invitations. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Family discussions will go well today. You'll enjoy entertaining at home. Make plans to invite people over, because this is a winning, friendly day. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Relations with others are harmonious today. Expect to make new friends. This is a good day to schmooze with others, especially at home. (Invite the gang over!) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is a good day for business and commerce, especially with professional sports, the arts, the entertainment world and show business. Behind-thescenes information will help. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Things easily go your way today, which is why you will enjoy relating to others. Don't be afraid to push a little and ask for what you want. Someone might encourage you to move forward to attain your goals. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) People in authority notice you now, in part, because you're ambitious. However, it appears that behind-the-scenes help can push your agenda and make you shine! LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Look for ways to travel today, especially with family members. You might explore opportunities in publishing, medicine and the law. You want more out of life today. SCORPIO Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Private details about your personal life might be made public today. In particular, this could concern shared property, inheritances and insurance matters. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Be patient with partners and friends if they seem annoying (which is very likely the case). Instead, do something different. Go someplace you've never been before. Shake it up a little. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) It's easy to work hard today, and it's just as easy to delegate. Basically, you want to accomplish a lot, because you sense that the support from others will help you do this. Go, go, go. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is a fun-loving, social day. Enjoy good times with romantic partners, sports colleagues and children. Slip away on a quick vacation if you can, because you want to have fun! PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Discussions with a female relative could be significant today. Look for ways to make improvements at home or explore real-estate opportunities. YOU BORN TODAY You're imaginative and intuitive. You seek adventure and dream of distant places, because fantasies fuel your activities. Obstacles will not deter you, because you are relentless in pursuing your goals. You tend to idealize events and hero worship loved ones. Make time in your year ahead to study or learn something valuable, as it will benefit you in the future. Birthdate of: Malcolm McDowell, actor; Kat Dennings, actress; Lucy, Lady Duff-Gordon, fashion designer/Titanic survivor. (c) 2013 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Wednesday, June 12, the 163rd day of 2013. There are 202 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 12, 1963, civil rights leader Medgar Evers, 37, was shot and killed outside his home in Jackson, Miss. (In 1994, Byron De La Beckwith was convicted of murdering Evers and sentenced to life in prison; he died in 2001.) On this date: • In 1939, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum was dedicated in Cooperstown, N.Y. • In 1942, Anne Frank, a Germanborn Jewish girl living in Amsterdam,

received a diary for her 13th birthday, less than a month before she and her family went into hiding from the Nazis. • In 1956, the Flag of the United States Army was officially adopted under an executive order signed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. • In 1963, one of Hollywood’s most notoriously expensive productions, “Cleopatra,” starring Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Rex Harrison, opened in New York. • In 1967, the Supreme Court, in Loving v. Virginia, struck down state laws prohibiting interracial marriages. • In 1987, President Ronald Reagan, during a visit to the divided

German city of Berlin, publicly challenged Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev to “tear down this wall.” • In 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were slashed to death outside her Los Angeles home. (O.J. Simpson was later acquitted of the killings in a criminal trial, but was eventually held liable in a civil action.) • Today’s Birthdays: Former President George H.W. Bush is 89. Actor-singer Jim Nabors is 83. Sportscaster Marv Albert is 72. Actor Jason Mewes is 39. Blues musician Kenny Wayne Shepherd is 36. Country singer Chris Young is 28.

California readies for possible return of gay marriage SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Planning a party for thousands of people would be a challenge under the best of circumstances. Now imagine trying to pull off such a gathering without knowing what day it should happen or if there even will be cause for celebration. Such are the circumstances for same-sex marriage supporters as they await a U.S. Supreme Court decision that will determine whether California’s voterenacted ban on gay marriages lives or dies. The high court’s ruling in a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 8 is expected before the end of the month, bringing with it the possibility that same-sex couples again will be able to wed in the nation’s most populous state.

The court’s justices heard oral arguments in the 4year-old case in March. This month, as their summer recess nears, the justices meet every Monday morning to issue opinions and may schedule additional days for rulings, including one already set for this Thursday. But the court does not give advance notice of which decisions it will release when, leaving organizers of decision-day events being planned nationwide to watch, wait and plan for multiple scenarios. “Not knowing what the day or the nature of the decision will be, everything feels like a placeholder,” said Stuart Gaffney, who along with his husband, John Lewis, is arranging a public rally in San Francisco. “From couples who would

love to exchange their vows ceremonially that day to entertainers and even people who have equipment and sound systems, we can’t say with any certainty whether anyone can be there.” Court watchers and legal experts are anticipating one of six possible outcomes: One could make bans on gay marriage unconstitutional nationwide; another would legalize gay marriage only in California and six other states that already provide the legal rights of marriage through civil unions or domestic partnerships; three other scenarios would allow same-sex marriages to resume in California itself. The justices also could uphold Proposition 8, which would turn the planned parties into protests and prompt gay rights activists


Cathy Darling Allen, who heads a statewide association of clerks and registrars, said some counties have started hearing from ministers and lay people who are offering to volunteer as marriage commissioners in case there is a rush for same-sex weddings. Still, she doesn’t anticipate any problems in moving forward should same-sex marriage again be made legal. During the brief window when same-sex couples could get married back in 2008 an estimated 18,000 couples did the state updated its marriage licenses to make them gender-neutral. The forms never were changed back to refer to a “bride” and “groom.” “I don’t anticipate a big hiccup,” said Darling Allen. “We have already done this, so we can do it again pretty easily.” Among those eagerly awaiting word from the high court are Thom Watson, 50, and Jeff Tabaco, 36, a Daly City couple who are celebrating their 10th anniversary together this month. In 2009, they had a ceremony to acknowledge their devotion to each other, but they decided against marrying in another state while Proposition 8 was in effect. Now, they’re making tentative plans for a wedding. “California is our home, so we want to be able to marry here. That was the reason after Prop. 8 passed we decided to have a comJune mitment ceremony,” Watson FEATURE said. “It was sort of like, we are not going to let this disBULK suade us from making that MULCH public commitment to each 850 S. Market St., Troy other, but we are definitely 339-9212 40083036 looking for that next step.”

for a rehearing, and the decision would not become final until that period elapses. California Gov. Jerry Brown, Attorney General Kamala Harris and state public health director Ron Chapman, who while named as defendants in the case refused to defend Proposition 8 in court, might need a few days more to notify county clerks that same-sex couples seeking marriage licenses should no longer be turned away, said Herrera. “We are just going to be prepared to do whatever we need to do if Prop. 8 is struck down, which we are confident it will be, to have all the resources available to effectuate the ruling and to let the marriages begin as quickly as they can,” he said. Proposition 8, which amended the California Constitution to define marriage as the union of a man and woman, passed with 52 percent of the vote in November 2008, a little more than five months after the state Supreme Court had legalized same-sex marriages by striking down a pair of laws that also had limited marriage to opposite-sex couples. Shasta County Clerk

to seek to undo the ban at the ballot box next year. “You prepare for every possibility, but there are so many roads to victory here that will lead to marriage equality back in California,” said Theodore Boutrous Jr., a lawyer for the two samesex couples who sued to overturn Proposition 8 in 2009. The ban’s supporters are not planning any formal events to mark the occasion, said National Organization for Marriage President John Eastman. “We are, of course, quite hopeful that the court will not interfere with the right of the people to decide this very important issue of public policy,” Eastman said. If gay marriage backers get the ruling they are hoping for, it is likely to take about a month before couples could start getting married in California, according to San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera. The losing side has 25 days under court rules to petition

Sakal retiring, Palmer in as Troy AD Former Piqua AD will have retiring Troy AD’s help during transition BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor For Jeff Sakal, it’s just time. “Having been an athletic administrator for 30-plus years now, I feel like I’ve put in my time,” the retiring Troy High School Athletic Director said. “Not many guys stay in this business that long with the time demands that have to be met to be successful. For Dave Palmer, it was too good a situation to pass up. “I certainly didn’t have any

TROY intention of leaving Piqua,” the now-ex-Piqua High School Athletic Director said after Monday night’s Troy Board of Eduction meeting, where he was confirmed as the new Troy AD. “Troy called me and wanted to know if I was interested. As I met with them and we talked about things they’re looking for and wanting to do, it just seemed like a good fit for me professionally and a good move for my family.” And so it was that the

Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division’s most bitter rivals saw the athletic department head jump from one to the other. A point which all of the men involved uniformly laughed off. “With both of us working in the GWOC North, we kind of keep an eye on each other and see what’s happening. All ADs watch and see what’s happening in other districts. We even meet monthly and talk weekly, bounce ideas off of each other,” Palmer said. “There were things I’ve done at Piqua that Troy was

Staff and Wire Reports CHICAGO — Todd Frazier, Joey Votto, Xavier Paul and Zach Cozart all hit homers for Cincinnati, and the Reds routed the Cubs 12-2 Tuesday night under the lights at Wrigley Field. Indians 5, Rangers 2 ARLINGTON, Texas — Corey Kluber allowed one run over eight innings and the Cleveland Indians beat the Texas Rangers 52 Tuesday night to snap an eight-

game losing streak. The Indians also ended a 12game road losing streak. Mark Reynolds had RBI single in the fourth off Derek Holland (53) that put Cleveland ahead to stay. Drew Stubbs added a tworun single in the fifth and scored on a single by Nick Swisher, who had only two hits his previous 28 at-bats. Kluber (4-4) went to Coppell High School, which is less than 25 miles from Rangers Ballpark. The

right-hander struck out three with three walks and benefited from three double plays. Lefty Holland, who pitched a season-low 4 1-3 innings, was 4-0 with a 2.40 ERA in his previous seven starts. Holland struck out the game’s first three batters on 11 pitches. But the left-hander was gone after his only walk loaded the bases with one out in the fifth after the Indians already scored three times that inning.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Danny Green scored 27 points, Gary Neal added 24 and the San Antonio Spurs set an NBA Finals record with 16 3-pointers in a 113-77 victory over the Miami Heat on Tuesday night that gave them a 21 series lead. Green hit seven of nine 3s, Neal was six for 10 from deep and Tim Duncan chipped in 12 points and 14 rebounds for the Spurs, who responded to a 19-point drubbing in Game 2 with a blowout of their own. The Spurs flummoxed four-time MVP LeBron James for a third straight game, holding him to 15 points on 7-of-21 shooting. James also had 11 rebounds and five assists, but he missed 11 of his first 14 shots and never looked comfortable against San Antonio’s swarming defense. Game 4 in the best-of-seven series is on Thursday night in San Antonio. Kawhi Leonard had 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Spurs, who are two wins away from the franchise’s fifth championship with two more games at home in the raucous AT&T Center this week. Mike Miller made all five of his 3-pointers for 15 points and Chris Bosh had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the defending champion Heat, who never led in the game.

Johnson’s lawyer seeking cut in jail term Results make history matter The photo of Ben Hogan hitting his 1iron into the 18th green at Merion in the 1950 U.S. Open is among the most famous in golf history, capturing the pure swing of one of the greatest players when the pressure of a major championship was at its peak. Instead of marveling at the swing, Tiger Woods thought more about the results. See Page 16.

MIAMI (AP) — The backside pat former NFL star Chad Johnson gave his lawyer in court was not meant as disrespect to a judge and certainly wasn’t something that warrants a 30-day jail sentence, the attorney said Tuesday in a motion seeking another chance. Adam Swickle asked Broward County Circuit Judge Kathleen McHugh to reconsider the sentence she imposed Monday. Johnson had reached a deal with prosecutors for community service and counseling to resolve a

probation violation from his no-contest plea last year to battery on his then-wife, TV star E v e l y n Lozada. McHugh, just elected last August to JOHNSON her first term on the bench, seemed poised to approve the plea deal until Johnson’s backside pat of

Swickle triggered a wave of laughter in the court. The judge then angrily said she wouldn’t sign off and tossed the six-time Pro Bowler formerly known as Chad Ochocinco in jail. “This isn’t a joke,” the judge said, raising questions about his sincerity. Swickle said the backside pat was merely Johnson’s way of showing appreciation for his attorney’s work on the case. Moments before it had meant he wouldn’t do any jail time despite skipping out on meetings with

his probation officer for three months. “Mr. Johnson has been a professional football player in the National Football League for 11 years and patting another individual on the backside is viewed as a sign of respect and gratitude,” he said in the motion. “It is clear that the court misinterpreted Mr. Johnson’s interaction with his attorney.” As for the courtroom laughter, Swickle added, “this is not Mr.

ADs ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 person for our students and our community. We didn’t look at where he (Palmer) was from. We looked at his qualifications. He met those, and throughout the interview process, he definitely stood apart from the rest.” Palmer worked at Piqua for 26 years, a majority of those as athletic trainer and the last eight of which as athletic director. Sakal, meanwhile, has been an athletic

director since 1983, working at Wright State University and in Tipp City before coming to Troy in 2004. Palmer’s resignation at Piqua was immediate, but Sakal will not retire officially until December, giving him a chance to ease his successor into his new digs — something that played heavily in Palmer’s decision to come to Troy in the first place. “The fact that Jeff will still be there until

December, that was a big part of my decision,” Palmer said. “I’ll get to see how things operate and function there, and it will help make the transition more seamless. Jeff has done a lot of great things at Troy, and I think I can definitely learn some good things from him.” “That’s one great thing — Dave and I will have five or six months to work together before I go,” Sakal said. “Anytime you come into a new environment

and setting, no matter how much experience you have, it takes some time to adjust, adjust to how that district does business and who your go-to people are.” “That’s huge,” Overla said. “That doesn’t happen a lot, and I can’t say enough how very fortunate we are. Going to a different system with different people, this is a great way not to just throw someone new into the fire.” While also giving the Trojans more time to say

goodbye to their departing AD. “I can’t say enough good things about Jeff,” Overla said. “He and I go back a ways. He’s always been solid. You won’t find a more professional, harder working individual. And a lot of those same qualities in Jeff that we love are what Dave brings to the table, too.” “First of all, I’ve been extremely blessed here at Troy,” Sakal said. “Not only is it a great school, a great

community with a rich tradition and a great supportive base where lots of great student-athlets and coaches have passed through, but the thing I noticed right away was the spirit of cooperation between the city of Troy and Troy High School. “There are a lot of great, phenomenal people I’ve worked with at Troy. And you succeed with people. I’ve been blessed to have had the opportunity to work at Troy High School.”

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Johnson’s fault and he should not be punished for the actions of third parties.” Prosecutors say they’ll leave Johnson’s sentence up to McHugh, who presides over Broward County domestic violence cases. A hearing has been set for next Monday. Johnson, 35, spent most of his NFL career with the Cincinnati Bengals, catching 766 passes for more than 11,000 yards and 67 touchdowns. He played one year with the New England Patriots and then was in training camp

last year with the Miami Dolphins, who cut him after he head-butted Lozada during a domestic altercation. Lozada, a star on VH-1’s “Basketball Wives” show, quickly filed for divorce. Johnson, a Miami native, said in court he still hopes resurrect his football career. Under the plea deal that had been reached, Johnson would do 25 hours of community service and attend counseling sessions twice a week during his probation. In addition, the probation would be extended three months into December.

Tebow joins Pats FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tim Tebow and Tom Brady took turns, zipping passes over the middle and lofting tosses toward the corner of the end zone. On his first day with the Patriots, the New England newcomer was just a backup quarterback, No. 5 on his helmet and number three on the depth chart. And when practice ended Tuesday, Tebow talked for all of 40 seconds. “First and foremost, I just want to thank the Patriots for giving me an opportunity,” Tebow said. For now, that’s all it is. No promises of trick plays. No huge media circus. Not even a guaranteed job. To coach Bill Belichick, the focus is on football. And where Tebow fits in, well, the Patriots plan to find out. “I don’t know. We’ll see,” Belichick said. Two people with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press that Tebow was signed for two years but no assured money. One person says he will make the veteran’s minimum salary, $630,000 in 2013, with incentives. The Patriots already may be making money on their investment. The team’s pro shop was taking pre-orders for jerseys with his last name and no number on the back. Prices ranged from $69.95 to $99.95, with free shipping. Tebow prefers the number 15, but second-string quarterback Ryan Mallett

already has it. During practice, the three QBs worked under the close scrutiny of offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, the head coach with the Denver Broncos in 2011 when Tebow enjoyed his greatest pro success. They all threw good spirals, although Tebow’s velocity and delivery appeared to be the slowest. Asked how much McDaniels’ background with Tebow contributed to the signing, Belichick shed no light. “I don’t know,” Belichick said. About 10 minutes before the workout ended, Patriots owner Robert Kraft walked up to Tebow and shook hands. Kraft put his arm around Tebow’s back and Tebow put his arm on Kraft’s shoulder. They chatted for a few minutes as Tebow threw. “It’s such an honor to be a Patriot and play for coach Belichick and coach McDaniels, learn under Tom and to be a part of this great franchise and part of a very successful franchise,” Tebow said. “I found that out firsthand. I lost to them several times.” Tebow then strolled off without taking questions. Quite a contrast to Tebow’s introductory press session with the New York Jets last year. He spoke for 30 minutes at that gathering, moved from the normal media room to the team’s field house because the turnout was so large.

Winning is what makes the history matter for Woods ARDMORE, Pa. (AP) — The photo of Ben Hogan hitting his 1-iron into the 18th green at Merion in the 1950 U.S. Open is among the most famous in golf history, capturing the pure swing of one of the greatest players when the pressure of a major championship was at its peak. Instead of marveling at the swing, Tiger Woods thought more about the results. “That was to get into a playoff,” Woods said Tuesday, sounding more like a golf historian than the No. 1 player in the game. “Got about 40 feet and still had some work to do. It’s a great photo. But it would have been an all right photo if he didn’t win. He still had to go out and win it the next day.” Hogan managed to lag the long putt to about 4 feet and quickly knocked that in for his par to join a threeway playoff, which he won the next day over Lloyd Mangrum and Tom Fazio. Of his four U.S. Open titles, that meant the most to Hogan because he proved he could win just 16 months after a horrific car accident that nearly killed him. On battered legs, Hogan had to play the 36-hole final, followed by the 18-hole playoff. “Knowing the fact that he went through the accident and then came out here and played 36 and 18, that’s awfully impressive,” Woods said. In some small way, Woods can relate. Five years ago, Woods tried to play the U.S. Open with the ligaments shredded in his left knee and a double stress fracture in his lower left leg. The USGA published a book called ‘Great Moments of the U.S. Open,” and the photo it selected for the cover showed Woods arching his back and pumping his fists after making a 12-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole at Torrey Pines to get into a playoff. It wouldn’t have been much of a photo if he missed. Woods had to go 91 holes that week. He had to make another birdie on the 18th hole of the playoff to go extra holes before finally beating Rocco Mediate. “I think there was a lot of people pulling for Tiger,” said Rory McIlroy, who was


Tiger Woods, right, tees off on the eighth hole as Lee Westwood watches during practice for the U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club Tuesday in Ardmore, Pa. 19 at the time, a rookie on the European Tour who failed to qualify for the U.S. Open. “He was playing on a broken leg pretty much, so I was definitely pulling for Tiger. It was probably one of the best performances golf has ever seen, if not sport in general.” Hard as it might have been to believe that day, it also was the last major Woods won. He had one more chance at a major after his seasonending knee surgery, losing a two-shot lead to Y.E. Yang in the 2009 PGA Championship. After two darks years brought on by the collapse of his marriage and more injuries to his left leg, he had at least a share of the 36-hole lead in two majors last year, and he had an outside shot at the Masters in April going into the final round. Majors don’t come as easily as they once seemed to for Woods, though he never looked at them that way. “It wasn’t ever easy,” he said. “I felt it was still difficult because the major of the majors, three of the four always rotated. It was always on a new site each and every year. Augusta was the only one you could rely on from past experiences. A lot of majors that I won were on either the first or second time I’d ever seen it.” Woods won four majors on courses he had never

played Medinah for the 1999 PGA Championship, Valhalla for the PGA Championship the following year, Bethpage Black in the 2002 U.S. Open and Royal Liverpool for the 2006 British Open. Merion is new not only to him, but just about everyone. It last hosted a U.S. Open in 1981, when David Graham putted for birdie on every hole and closed with a 67. Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk and Steve Stricker played Merion, but they were all college kids at the 1989 U.S. Amateur. A few others competed in the 2005 U.S. Amateur or the 2009 Walker Cup. But never at a U.S. Open. “I don’t remember much about it from that long ago,” Stricker said. “But I remember at least that it was a great, old course with a lot of history to it, one that I enjoyed playing back in ‘89 and no different than today. It’s a great test.” It figures to be a different test this week. For all the history of Merion, this week seems like a recurrence of the troublesome weather that has followed the PGA Tour around this season. The course has received some 5 inches of rain since Friday, so much that it was closed for practice one day on the weekend, and play was stopped three times on

Monday. It was packed under mostly sunny skies Tuesday in what amounted to a crash course for so many players with the start of the U.S. Open only two days away. “Played the golf course last Wednesday, which has proved kind of invaluable now,” Graeme McDowell said. “I flew in yesterday with the intention of playing 18 holes late last night, but that didn’t happen. So I’m kind of adjusting my plan here at the minute. I’m going to play nine holes this afternoon and nine holes tomorrow.” Phil Mickelson spent two days at Merion last week, which also proved invaluable. He left town Monday for San Diego to practice in California’s dry weather, though he was planning on being home Wednesday, anyway, to watch his oldest daughter speak at her eighth-grade graduate ceremony. Woods stopped at Merion on the way to the Memorial, and wondered how much he got out of that practice round. It rained practically the entire time, so the ball wasn’t flying very far in the air or when it hit the ground. Woods was trying to figure out how much the ball would run along the canted fairways in dry conditions. Now, he might not find out.

Crawford, Rask in Stanley Cup finals spotlight CHICAGO (AP) — Corey Crawford was in the stands when Patrick Kane slammed home the goal that secured the Stanley Cup for the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010. A year later, Tuukka Rask was just a practice player when Tim Thomas led the Boston Bruins to the title. Fast forward to Wednesday night at the United Center, and Crawford and Rask will be in goal when the Blackhawks host the Bruins in Game 1 of the Cup finals. It’s been a long road, but that little taste of the Stanley Cup turned into much more for two of the most important players for this series.


Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford deflects a shot by the Los Angeles Kings during the third period in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals June 1 in Chicago. Sure, it’s nice to win a championship. It’s just a little sweeter when you’re on the ice at the very end. “Once you’ve seen it, and not being on the ice, I

think everybody would like to have that chance someday,” Rask said. “For me, it came pretty early after our win and I’m just trying to make the most

out of it and enjoy myself.” The rise of Rask and Crawford is a testament to the patience and steady approach of the Bruins and Blackhawks, and it’s no coincidence that each team is seeking to become the first franchise with two Stanley Cups in the salary cap era. After a slow and steady climb, Rask and Crawford have been the best goaltenders in the league during this year’s playoffs. Crawford leads the NHL with a 1.74 goals-against average, just ahead of Rask (1.75 GAA). “It’s a process for goalies, I think,” said Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman, one of Crawford’s biggest supporters over the years.

“We’ve always had confidence in his ability. I think it’s just nice to see now him getting the recognition that he deserves. “The consistent play that we’ve had game in, game out, it’s been that way from the beginning of the year. We know we’re going to get a great performance from him every night.” While Chicago drafted Crawford in the second round a decade ago, Rask was a first-round selection for the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2005. Boston got him in a trade for goalie Andrew Raycroft a year later. General manager Peter Chiarelli, who officially took over the team a couple weeks after the Rask

deal, said it’s his understanding that the Bruins decided they wanted Rask instead of center Jiri Tlusty in the deal. “There was a lot of discussion at both ends about it,” Chiarelli said. “It was decided that it would be Rask from Boston’s end. I think they tried to come back and maybe flip that, consider the other guy, who is a good player in Carolina now. Eventually they said no and the deal was done.” It certainly worked out for the Bruins. Rask took over after Thomas decided to take a year off. Once the 26-yearold Finn got off to a great start, the mercurial Thomas was traded to the New York Islanders.
