Project hits snag

Correction In Monday’s story “Rock the River,” the flashmob group that performed at Treasure Island’s concert Sunday was misidentified. The flashmob dance group was part of the Ohio Performing Arts Institute in Springfield. D. Scot Davidge, the director, was asked to put together the flash mob by Tom Kendall and students from the studio volunteered to learn the choreography and take time to do the dance. The Springfield Ballet Theatre, also part of OPAI, danced at the welcome stage in the park as the GOBA riders arrived. The Troy Daily News apologizes for this error.

Township trustees obtained a copy of a resolution from Monroe Township regarding stricter rules for parking on township streets. Trustees said the resolution will be presented to the township’s legal council Mark Altier and Tony Kendall for their consideration before further action. Trustee Bill Whidden thanked Collier for bringing the issue to their attention and said the resolution may take considerable time to take affect in the future. Trustee Tom Mercer said he supports the concept and wants the resolution to be presented to legal council “just to be clear” on what grounds the resolution would be

enforced and enforced by whom, either township officials or law enforcement. The parking regulation resolution trustees are considering is part of the Ohio Revised Code 505.17, which would prohibit the parking of commercial vehicles on any street in a residential subdivision of the township. The areas of the resolution in question pertain to the phrase: no person shall park or permit any motor vehicle having motor power and used as a commercial vehicle or a commercial tractor to be parked “at any time” on any street in a residential subdivision of the township. Township officials said they’d like more clarity and flexibility to the phrase “at any time” to allow for


moving vehicles or commercial equipment such as tree trimming equipment who are actively working on site in the neighborhoods. Another part of the resolution being questioned is violators being guilt of a minor misdemeanor and subject to a fine and who would enforce the regulation. Trustee Sue Campbell said the resolution seems like a “wise thing to do” due to some neighborhood streets being narrow and pedestrians having to walk or bike around such large equipment. Campbell said some leeway should be considered for those having work done to their homes or other short-term projects which need commercial equipment in the neighborhood such as moving vans

Gentis’ wife Patty is a second grade teacher at Miami East Elementary. Miami East Local School’s Superintendent Dr. Todd Rappold said Gentis was selected by a committee of nine individuals to serve as the district’s high school principal. “The loss at Tri-Village is our gain,” Rappold said. “We are very fortunate and very pleased to welcome Mr. Gentis to our district.” Gentis, joined by his wife Patty and his daughter Kylie, said he was thankful for the opportunity to serve as the high school principal at Miami East. Gentis earned his bachelor’s degree in education from Wright State University in 1996 and earned his master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of Dayton in 1999. In other news: Miami East Local Schools renewed its liability, property and fleet insurance from the Ohio School Plan through The Hylant Administrative Services from July 1, 2013June 30, 2014, for $49,870. The renewal policy was $4,572 more than last year’s policy due to claims from wind damage from last year’s derecho in June 2012. Treasurer Lisa Fahncke said the renewal policy was still $15,000 less than other policies’ premiums which were reviewed last year. Fahncke also reported that the district was “right on budget” at the end of fiscal year 2013. Fahncke said increased kindergarten enrollment and new casino revenue boosted the revenue for the year by $25,000. Fahncke

also reported expenditures were slightly lower than anticipated dues to retirement and benefit claims down by $50,000. “We are pretty much on target everywhere else,” Fahncke said. “Not over in expenditures and not under in revenue.” Board president Kevin Accurso said the report “sounds good.” The board accepted for the following donations: $1,010 from ETS for the junior high school’s principal’s fund, $100 from ETS for the general fund, $600 from the Victoria Theatre’s Association to the elementary school’s principal fund for transportation to the Shuster Center, $50 from Pomona Grange for the FFA, choir risers valued at $500 from Bethel Local School district and $3,000 from the Miami East PTO to the elementary principal’s fund for purchase of computers for the elementary computer lab. Due to two large junior high school classes, the board approved Heather Gilliland to full-time for the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 school years. Gilliland previously was teaching on a part-time basis at the junior high, said Rappold. Due to the two large class sizes, Gilliland will teach the full school day for the two years of the “bubble classes.” The board approved Betsy Borchers as a first grade teacher on a one-year limited contract, step 1 for the 2013-2014 school year. The board approved the following personnel for the 2013-2014 school year effective Aug. 1.: Brenda Aviles as a bus driver, Karen Follrod as the technology facilitator at step 7, Jeanie Marlow as assistant cook at step 0, and Susan Blocher as the K-8 cashier, step 0. The board also approved Matt Rutledge at step 6 as the boys varsity assistant basketball coach, Kevin Evans as the boys junior varsity coach at step 6 and Tami Dehart and Jessica McCoy as girls junior varsity soccer coaches with 1/2 step compensation per coach. The board also approved the Miami East High School choir’s out-of-state trip to Orlando, Fla., on April 1-5, 2014.

Adoption fees lowered for cats TROY — Due to overcrowding and kitten season, the Miami County Society Cat Humane Program — a nonprofit and all volunteer organization — is drastically reducing cat adoption fees to $15 for approved homes for an undetermined time. Cats and kittens can be viewed on and are displayed daily at the two Pecto stores in Troy as well as the new R Pets store in Piqua (near Krogers). Kittens are adopted into homes as a pair, with another feline or friendly dog already in the household to maintain socialization. All cats have been tested neg. for FeLV/FIV, spayed/neutered (kittens will be at 3 pounds/3 months), received flea treatment, deworming and first shots.

To help eliminate the overcrowding and to save as many lives as possible, the MCHS hope to alleviate some of the adoption fee burden to future, responsible pet guardians. If you cannot adopt, but would like to support the costs of preparing Miami County’s homeless stray cats and kittens for their new forever home, donations can be sent to: Miami County Humane Society Cat Programs P.O.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP New York Times on an important victory on morning-after pills: Reluctantly yielding to a federal-court decision, the Obama administration announced on Monday that it will take steps to allow a version of the so-called morning-after pill, known as Plan B One-Step, to be sold over the counter to girls and women of all ages. They will not need a prescription, nor will they be required to show any identification to obtain the emergency contraceptive. There will be no restrictions on where the drug can be sold; it will be up to the manufacturer to propose appropriate venues. The turnabout from the administration’s previous politically motivated restrictions on the pill was hailed as a breakthrough, or at least a significant step forward, by some advocates for women. This latest stance substantially repairs the damage done when Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of health and human services, intervened in December 2011 to block the Food and Drug Administration from approving the morning-after pills for all females of childbearing age. … In April, the FDA approved use of Plan B One-Step in girls ages 15 and 16, but that would still have required checkout clerks in drugstores to demand proof of age. Now the administration has abandoned the legal battle and announced that it will move to make Plan B One-Step, an easy-to-use version of the pill, available without restrictions. However, it warned that Plan B One-Step might be granted “marketing exclusivity” for a period of time. Ideally, there should be no restrictions on these remarkably safe and effective drugs that can prevent pregnancy if taken within 72 hours of sexual intercourse. The Anniston Star on snooping on the people: Imagine for a moment a gaggle of high-powered Washington elites gathered at a White House podium. This bipartisan assembly includes the current president of the United States and top members of his administration as well as former President George W. Bush and key personnel from his administration. Also, included are the top senators and representatives on our intelligence committees. The subject is the recent revelations that vast amounts of electronic data belonging to U.S. citizens are being collected by the feds in the name of national security. As articles in The Guardian newspaper and The Washington Post point out, the National Security Agency has secretly collected U.S. phone records and other online activity for several years spanning two presidential administrations. All of this — and probably much more — is done in the name of thwarting the plans of jihadists who have already proven themselves capable of committing deadly acts of terrorism in the United States and across the globe. Yet, Edward Snowden, a former private contractor working for the NSA, told reporters from The Guardian and The Washington Post that the programs are well over the line. So, back to our podium assembly. President Barack Obama along with President Bush and Republican and Democratic members of Congress look directly into the TV cameras and walk back their defenses of the collection of so-called phone records metadata. The programs are a step too far, they say. While legal under the PATRIOT Act, this massive invasion of the privacy of U.S. citizens must come to an end. Never again in this manner will we trade liberty for security, they promise. Thwarting terrorist plots may become more difficult, they sigh, but the trust of the American people is more important. So from this day forward, they sum up, we will no longer gather up the electronic dust left by Americans as they use computers and mobile phones. Yeah, right. No American can reasonably expect such an announcement. Even if our leaders were sincere in their declarations, a backslide into electronic snooping would happen within hours of a terrorist attack in the United States. The stakes are too high and the tools too attractive to do anything else.

I hope to make this the best summer ever The other day I was making small talk with a lady while out shopping. (Haven’t we all?) Naturally the conversation veered to the weather, that saving grace of awkward pauses. “Don’t you just love it out there?” she said of the 85 degreeday with nary a cloud in the sky. She was wearing the kind of eyecatching floral dress that you just knew she had waited months to break out. “I sure do! This is my kind of weather,” I replied. “I only wish it could be this way all year,” she continued. “The summer just flies by and then, toward the end, I spend all my time dreading winter.” I couldn’t think of a response, because I wasn’t sure if I agreed or not. How dismal. Yes, I find winter truly depressing sometimes, but I certainly won’t be thinking about that during glorious days spent at the pool, rocking out at concerts, or hiking in the woods. Still, with summer officially starting this Friday, that lady’s somewhat bleak mindset made me realize my days for fun in the sun are numbered. I intend to make the most of them. So what do I hope to fit in?

Natalie Knoth Troy Daily News Columnist • Hiking at as many nature reserves as I can. My friend Jane and I went walked the trails several times last year, which provided a much-needed respite from technology and everything else that can bog me down on a daily basis. • A trip to the zoo, either Columbus or Cincinnati or elsewhere. Something about checking out all the lions and tigers and bears brings out a childlike curiosity in me. People-watching is pretty fun, too. (Sometimes they’re even more interesting than the animals. Just kidding.) • Embarking on a road trip. I’ve been meaning to visit my college roommate Chelsea, who now goes to grad school about 10 hours away in rural Pennsylvania. As an added bonus, there’s a bus service in

her city that provides $20 trips to New York City. Sounds like a double win. • Going on a long bike ride. This is contingent on my actually getting a bike, but whatever — the devil is in the details. And I’m not talking about GOBA distance standards here — just maybe a 5-mile bike ride here and there. It would be rejuvenating. • Doing one of those paintingwhile-drinking-a-glass-of-wine classes. Yes, that’s a real thing. I haven’t done much research about events around here, but I know Cincinnati has a few. Basically you paint on a canvas while sipping a glass. True, this isn’t a summer-specific activity, per se. But I’ve had this on my to-do list for far too long. • Having a blast in Vegas. My friend’s boyfriend is stationed out there, so she and another friend of mine booked cheap tickets a couple months ago to stay at a resort for a few days. We have a countdown going — August cannot get here soon enough. • Going to Kings Island. I actually hate roller coasters with a passion (my idea of a thrill ride is the haunted house), but I love

the atmosphere. Generally I’m content sticking with the water park, even though the crowd can be overwhelming and staking out a spot is often troublesome. I suppose it’s all part of the experience, though. • Attending as many outdoor events as I can — street festivals, art shows, music events, you name it. I’ve already got several concerts on the agenda — 98 Degrees, Hunter Hayes, John Mayer, Backstreet Boys with Jesse McCartney (don’t judge), and Mumford & Sons, of course — but I would sell my soul to see Luke Bryan, too. Apparently tickets go on sale in August. Already have my calendar marked. But more so than anything else, my overarching theme for this summer is to unplug from technology, turn down the stress dial, and bask in all that nature has to offer. Even if I fail miserably at this list, I can at least say I spent a little more time doing one of two things: either a) being active or b) enjoying some R&R. Both are perfectly acceptable in my eyes.

Lakota language supporter dies Albert White Hat, 74, fought lengthy battle with cancer SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The Lakota language has lost one of its greatest supporters. Albert White Hat, who was instrumental in teaching the endangered American Indian language to new generations for nearly four decades, died last week at a hospital in South Dakota, according to language preservationists and fellow members of his Rosebud Sioux Tribe. He was 74. White Hat authored several books on writing and reading Lakota, a language spoken fluently by fewer than 6,000 people. The average age of those speakers is 60, and less than 14 percent of the Lakota population in South Dakota and North Dakota where the vast majority of Lakota speakers live speaks their native tongue. He had taught the Lakota language since 1975, and was an instructor at the Lakota Studies Department at Sinte Gleska University on the Rosebud Indian Reservation. Also the author of books about life on the reservation, White Hat was considered an activist for traditional ways of living. “Albert was a great teacher, a spiritual leader and a friend to all who came to know him and was well known within the powwow circuit,” Rosebud Sioux Tribal President Cyril Scott said in a statement, noting that White Hat was awarded numer-

He was born on the outskirts of St. Francis, S.D., on the Rosebud reservation. He spoke only Lakota until the age of 7, when he started learning English in school. His grandfather, Chief Hollow Horn Bear, was a leading chief in many of the Plains Indians Wars against settlers in the 1800s, and was also involved in treaty negotiations with the U.S. Wilhelm Meya, executive director of the Lakota Language Consortium, a nonprofit seeking to revitalize the Lakota language, called White Hat a “warrior” for the Lakota language and said he hopes White Hat’s legacy won’t go unrecognized.

“Anytime someone who cares so deeply about the language passes, it’s a blow to the language and the efforts,” revitalization Meya said. White Hat’s death could serve as a wakeup call to people that the Lakota language is still in danger of becoming extinct, Meya said. And he hopes more young people will decide to study the language and work to retain its importance. “We are, after all, losing speakers every year,” Meya said. “Over 100 Lakota speakers pass on (each year). Those speakers are not being replaced by young speakers. Until we can reverse that trend, the language will continue to be very much in danger.” White Hat is survived by his wife, seven children and many grandchildren.

Pioneering woman photog Helen Brush Jenkins dies LOS ANGELES (AP) Helen Brush Jenkins, a pioneering photojournalist who made Life magazine when she snapped a photo of her child moments after giving birth, has died. She was 94. Her daughter, Genji Leclair, tells the Los Angeles Times that Jenkins died Wednesday at her home in Chicago, days after suffering a stroke. Jenkins became a photographer for the now-defunct Daily News in Los Angeles in the 1940s at a time when few women held such jobs. Over more than a dozen years, she snapped first lady Eleanor Roosevelt, President Harry Truman and stars such as Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable and John Wayne. In 1953, Life magazine printed a photo Jenkins took of her newborn son, Gilmer, just after giving birth.



ROBERT A. JONES SIDNEY — Robert A. Jones, 78, of Sidney, Ohio, formerly of Euclid, Ohio — a suburb of Cleveland — passed away on Saturday, June 15, 2013, at the Dorothy Love Retirement Community in Sidney. He was born on Nov. 14, 1934, in Cleveland, Ohio, to the late Harry P. and Catherine (Curtis) Jones. His wife, Doris (Levereaux) Jones, survives. In addition to his wife, Doris, Mr. Jones is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Alan and Donna Jones of Fairfax, Va.; daughter and son-in-law, Patricia Jones-Logan and Matthew Logan of Troy, Ohio; two grandsons, Brandon and Zachary Jones; two granddaughters, Madailein and Catharine Logan; brother and sister-in-law, David and Betty Jones; sister-in-law Gerry Claus and her husband Bernie Claus, and five nephews and their wives: Doug and Toni Levereaux, Scott and Cindy Levereaux, Larry and Jennifer Jones, Brian and Suzanne Jones, and Evan and Jane Jones. Bob Jones met Doris Levereaux in youth group at Beachland Presbyterian Church and attended Collinwood High School together. They went on their first date when he was 16 and she was 14 with their good friends Dale and Maxine Foster. The four of them were part of the wedding party in each other’s weddings. They would remain very good friends throughout their lives. After high school, Bob joined the Air Force and rose to the rank of staff sergeant. His military service was a great source of pride for him, and he remained active in veteran’s organizations. After his honorable discharge from the Air Force, Bob became a journeyman plumber. He was foreman for National Engineering and Contracting Company, and responsible for several large commercial construction projects in Cleveland and Cuyahoga County. After working for National, Bob brought his experience to the City of Euclid by working as an employee for more than 10 years at the Water Treatment Plant helping to keep Lake Erie clean. Bob showed his love and commitment to God, by serving the Lord in many different ways. While at Beachland Presbyterian, he served several terms on the Session, and was Superintendent of Sunday School. He and Doris attended all church functions and orchestrated many of them, as part of their couples group. Later, as a member of East Shore Methodist, he was active on the Board of Trustees and responsible for a major renovation of the sanctuary and the complete remodeling of the church’s parsonage. Bob also was an active Mason for more than 52 years. The last two years, he was a member of Temperance Lodge No. 73, in Sidney, Ohio; and before that he was a member of the Charles T. Raymer — Covenant Lodge No. 683, in Euclid, Ohio. While at Charles Raymer he was Tyler for 18 years. He also was a member of the Scottish Rite, Valley of Cleveland, Ohio. Bob was a man of few words. He preferred to speak through his actions and provided loving support of his family’s activities. This included his wife, Doris and her business partner, Judy Kessler

Smith, through the setup and breakdown at numerous craft shows for their company, “Smith and Jones.” Bob supported his son’s pursuit of Eagle Scout over several years through his encouragement and his participation on the council of Troop 322. He supported his daughter’s numerous skating competitions, videotaping them all, and traveled to see her many times during her time with Disney On Ice. Bob was also an officer and test chair of the Euclid Blade and Edge Club, and he never missed her track or cross-country meets and was always helping his daughter deliver the Plain Dealer in the middle of those snowy cold winters. He expressed his love and commitment to his grandchildren in the effort that he made by traveling to see them in Illinois, Virginia and Southwest Ohio to see them on their birthdays, christenings and graduations. Bob’s hobbies included music, art, and musical theater. He and Doris spent time at museums, points of local and national history, and often went to see performances with friends. His love of engineering and appreciation for design was evident, as he spent many weekends attending the National Car Shows in Cleveland and Detroit. He also spent many Labor Day weekends at the National Air Show at Burke Lake Airport. He often experimented in new camera technology as this reminded him of his days in the Air Force when he supported reconnaissance missions. He also listened or watched his favorite teams — the Cleveland Indians, the Cleveland Browns and The Ohio State Buckeyes. Bob was constantly maintaining and fixing things. He was always working on the automobiles in his garage, involving both his son and daughter and showed them the importance of maintaining equipment to save money and make things last. This carried forward when both of them became homeowners, including all of the Logan’s houses in Illinois, New Jersey, and in Troy. This last one was arguably the most involved. For his son, he and his friend Ronald Klein spent an entire week in Virginia doing all the plumbing and electrical work for his basement remodeling project. The family will receive friends at 3 p.m. Saturday, June 22, 2013, at the First Presbyterian Church, 20 S. Walnut St., Troy, Ohio. The Memorial service will begin at 4 p.m. with Rev. Dr. Richard Culp officiating. Interment will be at a later date in Acacia Masonic Memorial Park, Cleveland. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the following organizations and charities that Bob himself gave of his time and resources. Any size gift is appreciated: The Dorothy Love Lifecare Fund, 3003 W.

Ex-North Carolina Governor Jim Holshouser dies at 78 RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Jim Holshouser, who was North Carolina’s first Republican governor elected in the 20th century and then gave early support to Pat McCrory, the first GOP governor of this century, died Monday at age 78. Holshouser had been in declining health before he died at First Health of the Carolinas Medical Center in Pinehurst, his family said in a release through McCrory’s office. Holshouser missed McCrory’s inauguration in January due to pneumonia, but he had been active in public life until a few weeks ago, serving as an emeritus member on the University of North Carolina Board of Governors and working at a law firm. The Watauga County native endorsed McCrory in the Republican primary for governor in 2008, speaking at his kickoff campaign event. McCrory lost in the general election, but won four years later.

Ohio’s unused surplus about $397 million

Ohio theme parks rank in top 15 in attendance

3 Ohioans enslaved disabled mom, child

MASON — A new report says Ohio’s Cedar Point and Kings Island were the most-visited theme parks in the nation last year outside of the usual hot spots in Florida and California. The Themed Entertainment Association reports that Cedar Point in Sandusky came in 14th in the nation in attendance, and Kings Island near Cincinnati was 15th. Both had around 3.2 million visitors in 2012. Disney’s Magic Kingdom near Orlando, Fla., was the most visited park in the country last year with 17.5 million visitors. Other parks in Florida and California filled out the top 13. Kings Island’s attendance grew 2.5 percent last year, and Cedar Point grew by 0.7 percent. Both are owned by Cedar Fair Entertainment Co.

CLEVELAND (AP) A mentally disabled woman and her young child were enslaved for more than a year, denied food and threatened with a pet python and pit bills, and the woman was beaten and forced to get pain medication for her captors, authorities said Tuesday in announcing federal charges against three suspects. The three invited the woman and her child, whose names were withheld, to live with them and, beginning in early 2011, forced the mother to do their bidding by threatening to hurt her and the girl, described as 5 or 6, federal authorities and Ashland police said. The mother and child were freed in October after police investigated an abuse allegation one of the suspects made against her, authorities said, and they are doing well.

before the new fiscal year July 1.

COLUMBUS (AP) — The state budget director has told a legislative committee that Ohio should have roughly $397 million in uncommitted funds left at the end of the current budget year. The news comes as lawmakers head into final negotiations over Ohio’s next two-year budget. Budget Director Tim Keen and legislative analysts delivered updated state revenue and Medicaid caseload projections to a six-member conference committee on Tuesday. Keen told the panel that the governor believes the ending balance should be returned to taxpayers. The two chambers have separate tax plans that must be reconciled. The Senate dropped a 7 percent statewide income tax reduction passed by the House in favor of smallbusiness exemptions. Lawmakers face a June 30 deadline to pass the almost $62 billion budget

to comprehend,” Dettelbach said. “They tried to take away her human dignity.” Police first got involved when the woman was charged with shoplifting a candy bar and asked to be jailed because the three suspects “had been mean to her,” said Ashland police Lt. Joel Icenhour. Police checking into her claim went to the apartment after one of the suspects said it was the woman who was abusive. Authorities said the allegation was a ruse complete with a video staged by the suspects.

the emergency room for pain medication, according to the affidavit. The woman told investigators the trio learned of her plan to try to escape and punished her by shaving her hair into a Mohawk and using a marker to write “slut,” ”tramp” and “whore” on her face and chest. She was forced to clean up the hair without a broom or dust pan, according to the affidavit. The woman was forced to do house work and shop for her captors and clean up after pets, authorities said. “They treated her with such cruelty that it is hard

“The victim in this case is slowly recovering,” U.S. Attorney Steve Dettelbach said. Jordie Callahan, 26, Jessica Hunt, 31, and Daniel J. “DJ” Brown, 33, all of Ashland, were charged with forced labor. They were being held, pending a federal court hearing. Callahan also was charged with tampering with a witness in the investigation. No attorneys were listed for them in court records. According to an FBI affidavit, the mother and child were denied food at times or given leftovers; on one occasion when they hadn’t eaten all day, the mother was given a plate of food and ordered to feed the pet dog.

Officials: Unattended campfire caused fire MARIPOSA, Calif. (AP) — An unattended campfire near a main route into Yosemite National Park has grown into a blaze that has led to the evacuations of 800 homes and 1,500 people, officials said Tuesday. California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection officials released the cause of the fire Tuesday, as 2,200 firefighters - up from more than 700 Monday - worked to gain the upper hand on it amid windy, dry conditions. No other details available about were where the fire started, spokeswoman Karen Guillemin said. The fire 6 miles northeast of Mariposa has burned more than 2 square miles and was 15 percent contained. Though temperatures were down, officials feared the weather conditions could still fuel the flames, officials said. The fire, which started Sunday, has not grown in size from Monday evening but is burning on the interior, Guillemin said. One firefighter suffered a minor injury, but no structures have been damaged or destroyed. Crews are clearing brush to create defensive space around homes, laying fire line and dropping retardant from the air. Firefighters in Colorado were mopping up remaining hot spots from the most destructive wildfire in state history. The Black Forest Fire just outside Colorado Springs killed two, destroyed 502 homes


U.S. Forest Service fireman, Bo Rice, 28, works on putting out hot spots while fighting the Carstens Fire in the Sierra National Forest near Jerseydale, Calif., in the Mariposa area on Monday. and charred more than 22 square miles. It was 85 percent contained Tuesday as hundreds of evacuated residents were allowed back into the burn area, though they were warned that many would return to rubble, not their homes. Colorado firefighters were also finishing work putting out a wildfire that burned 5 square miles near Canon City in southern Colorado. A wind-whipped 20-acre wildfire in northern Arizona on Tuesday forced the evacuations of some

homeowners west of Prescott in Yavapai County. It wasn’t immediately clear how many people have been evacuated and authorities didn’t know how the fire started. Wildfires have also charred nearly 100 square miles of dry, rugged terrain across New Mexico since the end of May, with the largest fire still raging in the Gila National Forest. Hot, windy weather helped the 39-square-mile Silver Fire grow overnight, and firefighters were concerned since critical fire weather

was expected through the rest of the week. No homes have burned in New Mexico, but land managers in the Gila and Santa Fe National Forests were already bracing Tuesday for the post-fire threats of erosion and flooding from summer rains. In Mariposa, state Route 140 into Yosemite National Park remains open. Tourists can see some smoke from the road itself, but it does not affect visitors in the park, said Yosemite National Park

spokesman Scott Gediman. The fire is burning about 35 miles west of the park boundary, Gediman said. “Visitors coming into the park are fine,” he said. “We’re not discouraging visits, just the opposite. If people have plans, there’s absolutely no reason for them not to come.” Fire officials said fire danger is extreme in California this year, due to an especially dry spring. Already this year, more than 80 square miles have burned across the state. At this time last year, only

about 30 square miles had burned. Cal Fire has responded to 2,600 fires so far in 2013, a 75 percent increase from 2012, officials said. Samantha Weber, who lives in Midpines, a rugged, unincorporated area about 35 miles west of Yosemite, said she knew the fire near Yosemite was headed for her home when she saw charred leaves drifting at her. “I saw entire leaves that are blackened and blistered just floating through the air,” Weber told the San Francisco Chronicle. “They looked like birds.” The fire was helped by swirling winds and dry conditions that residents said are severe and arrived surprisingly early this year. “It is kind of always dry here in the summer,” Weber said. “But it was an especially dry spring, so things are really dry.” Ed Helms, his wife and three adult children were told to evacuate their home in Hites Cove on Sunday as they celebrated Father’s Day in the backyard. “We had to leave the steaks we were cooking on the barbecue to pack up and get out,” Helms told the Modesto Bee. The Red Cross has set up a shelter in Mariposa for evacuees. An estimated 94 percent of wildfires have human causes, Guillemin said. “Humans need to stop and think fire prevention before they do anything outdoors, so they can help prevent fires,” she said.

L.A. City Council tentatively bans plastic bags LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles is one council vote away from becoming the nation’s largest city to pass a ban on plastic grocery bags, which officials say will stop the flow of 2 billion single-use bags that are distributed each year and often end up in gutters and on beaches. The City Council voted 11-1 Tuesday in favor of the ban. Since it failed to earn unanimous approval,

the ordinance will face a second vote next week. Los Angeles “took a stand today for our children to protect our environment, which also sends a strong and clear message to every big city in the nation that they should follow our lead,” said Councilmember Jose Huizar, who chairs the Energy and Environment Committee. The ban would apply to

convenience stores, supermarkets and large retailers, such as Wal-Mart, that sell perishable foods. Stores would be prohibited from handing out single-use bags and would pay fines ranging from $100 to $500 for violations. Shoppers would have to

bring their own reusable bags or pay 10 cents for each paper bag. The ordinance would take effect Jan. 1 for large stores, while smaller stores will have until July 2014 to comply. Officials from the Bureau of Sanitation said the 10-cent surcharge

would be used to offset any additional costs stores have to make the switch, adding that any remaining funds would be used to educate the public about proper care for reusable bags. Sanitation authorities estimate about 2 billion plastic bags are distrib-

uted in the city each year. That’s more than 228,000 bags every hour. Proponents of the ban said the plastic bags litter cities and beaches and endanger wildlife. Councilman Bill Rosendahl, a long-time supporter of the ban, said the law was a “no brainer.”

Ask your husband to go to counseling with you Dear Annie: My sweet, kind 33-year-old college-educated husband has regressed into a teenager. He has always been a marijuana user, but a year ago, he befriended "Jake," and now the two of them smoke marijuana daily. They spend their evenings riding skateboards, playing video games and hanging out with college kids. I would like to buy a house, have children and further my education. My husband says he wants the same things, but he always has an excuse for not saving money. We both have good jobs, and he promises to start putting money aside "next month." It never happens. I know he won't give up pot. He says he will get divorced before he quits smoking marijuana, and I knew that before we married. Am I wrong to put my foot down and expect him to grow up? Or do I need to lighten up and let him have his fun? — Feeling Like My Husband's Mother Dear Feeling: You and your husband do not have compatible goals. He wants to be an irresponsible child while you do all the work. And so far, you have gone along with that. Maybe he's afraid to grow up, maybe he's too addicted to pot, maybe he's simply a Peter Pan. Ask him to come with you for counseling so the two of you can work on a more equitable partnership. If he is unwilling or if nothing changes, there is no future here unless you want to spend the next several years mothering this grownup child. It's a painful lesson to learn that love isn't always enough to turn someone into marriage material. Dear Annie: My friend's son married a lovely young woman whose only brother died a few years ago. The wife kept her maiden name after marriage for professional reasons. The couple is expecting their first child, and the wife would like to name the boy after her deceased brother, giving him her last name. Her reasoning is that it would ensure that her family name is carried on. Her husband has male cousins who can carry on the family name, but she doesn't. My friend is in shock. If her son agrees to this irrational request, she believes her family name stops there. In her mind, cousins do not count in carrying on one's lineage. However, she doesn't want to cause a family rift by openly and strongly opposing this possibility. Do you have any suggestions for her? — Friend of the Family Dear Friend: This is completely up to the couple, and your friend should try to stay out of it. Frankly, the wife has the stronger claim for carrying on a family name. It's also possible that the couple will have other sons. And plenty of women object to the oldfashioned (and sexist) notion that only the boys count when it comes to lineage. We know your friend is hurt and disappointed, but if she wants a relationship with her son, his wife and their child, she needs to put this aside. Dear Annie: I shared the same frustration as "Troubled in High School," the 16-year-old girl who can only think about boys, drugs, alcohol, dating and grades. She wants her life to be exciting. I'd like to suggest she try participating in her school's community service club. I was a member of my school's "Key Club," which is sponsored by the Kiwanis organization. It gave me the opportunity to focus on things outside of myself and my desires as a teenager and allowed me to put my energy into doing good. My friends who did drugs respected me enough to never offer me drugs. I hated that my parents were so strict, but now that I'm almost 30, I can appreciate that they molded me into an independent person who is confident in leading instead of following. There is nothing wrong with being a perfect little angel. I'm proud of that reputation. — Happy in Hawaii Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

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. YESTERDAY’S SOLUTION:


How can I avoid a marshmallow meld? Dear Heloise: I bought a bag of miniature marshmallows, which I stored in the pantry. I opened them three weeks later to use, and they were all stuck together in one big blob. It was a sticky mess getting them separated to use in my dessert recipe. How can I avoid this problem? — Ruth F. in Ohio Just place them in a container with a tightfitting lid, or in a freezer-safe plastic bag, and store in the freezer. Remove from the freezer and let the marshmallows warm to room temperature before using. If the marshmallows are stuck, pour a little confectioners’ (powdered) sugar or cornstarch

Hints from Heloise Columnist in the bag and shake to coat. The marshmallows should just break apart. — Heloise FLAVORED WATER Dear Heloise: I love the different flavored waters, but they can be expensive. My hint is to make them yourself. I use bottled water and add sliced fruit

(strawberries, raspberries, grapes, pineapple, lemon and lime), cucumbers, etc. You even can add mint leaves. Place the pitcher or container in the refrigerator for at least six hours to let the “additive” infuse into the water. — Linda B. in California COOKING ODORS Dear Heloise: I have a hint for cooking broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts and even poaching salmon. I rinse and trim a stalk of celery, cut it into thirds and add it to my liquids. It eliminates the cooking odors and does not impart a celery flavor to what I am cooking. I don’t know how, but it really does

work! — M.D., via email Many readers add different things to the water to avoid the odor, like lemon slices, but this is the first I’ve heard of celery! I tested this when cooking some fresh broccoli, and it did seem to help. And then there is my classic hint of setting a bowl of vinegar on the counter and turning the exhaust fan on while cooking odorous vegetables. Have you ever wondered what causes the odor? It’s the gas that is released as the vegetables are cooked. The longer the vegetables are cooked, the stronger the odor becomes, so, if you can, try less cooking time and see if there is less odor. — Heloise



Wednesday, June 19, 2013













BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, June 20, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is an excellent day for important family discussions, because everybody will be cooperative. You might even pull the wool over others' eyes. Who knows? TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Writers, actors, teachers and salespeople can do well today because your words are like gold. When you speak, you dazzle others with your ideas! GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Trust your moneymaking ideas, because they're excellent today. You are inventive, imaginative and, at the same time, resourceful. Don't hesitate to push your agenda. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Today you are stimulated by beauty and a strong interest in art, music or portraits. You see so many beautiful things and have so many beautiful ideas, you feel transformed. LEO July 23 to Aug. 22) Solitude in beautiful surroundings will be replenishing and restorative for you today. Sometimes we need to do something that is like a healthy drink to revive our energy. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Conversations with younger, artistic, creative people will please you today. This is also a good day to begin partnerships or enter into a new arrangement. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Discussions with authority figures will go well today. They are impressed with your practical take on things, and at the same time, they see that you have an appreciation for how things look. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Travel plans, especially travel for pleasure, will delight you today. Some will make plans to further their education or training. Others can benefit from opportunities in medicine, the law and publishing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a good day to ask for a loan or a mortgage. You also can ask someone to give something back to you if they owe it to you. It's your winning day. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Relations with partners and close friends can be warmly bonding today, or in turn, troubled relationships can be repaired. This is also a good day to begin new partnerships. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You can expect good support from coworkers today. Trust your ideas and impulses, because they could lead to a raise or praise from others. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Romance, love affairs, social activities, the arts, musical performances, sports events and playful times with children are favored today. You want to have fun, and you won't hesitate to express your desires. YOU BORN TODAY To others, you are charismatic, excitable and thrilling company. All this energy helps you to be persuasive whenever you choose to be. Ironically, you often are not aware of your influence over others. Nevertheless, you easily motivate and rouse people to action. In the year ahead, a major change might occur, perhaps something as significant as what took place around 2004-05. Birthdate of: Grace Potter, musician; Nicole Kidman, actress; John Goodman, actor.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Wednesday, June 19, the 170th day of 2013. There are 195 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 19, 1953, Julius Rosenberg, 35, and his wife, Ethel, 37, convicted of conspiring to pass U.S. atomic secrets to the Soviet Union, were executed at Sing Sing Prison in Ossining, N.Y. On this date: • In 1862, Congress passed, and President Abraham Lincoln signed, a measure abolishing slavery in U.S. territories. • In 1952, the celebrity-panel game show “I’ve Got A Secret” made

its debut on CBS-TV with Garry Moore as host. • In 1963, President John F. Kennedy, speaking to Congress, criticized lawmakers for not acting on proposed civil rights legislation and called for passage of a single omnibus bill, the Civil Rights Act of 1963. Soviet cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova returned to Earth after three days as the first woman in space. • In 1973, the rock musical “The Rocky Horror Show” premiered in London (it was later adapted into the movie “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”). • In 1986, University of Maryland

basketball star Len Bias, the first draft pick of the Boston Celtics, suffered a fatal cocaine-induced seizure. Artificial heart recipient Murray P. Haydon died in Louisville, Ky., after 16 months on the manmade pump. • In 1999, author Stephen King was seriously injured when he was struck by a van driven by Bryan Smith in North Lovell, Maine. • Today’s Birthdays: Actress Gena Rowlands is 83. Singer Spanky McFarlane is 71. Actress Phylicia Rashad is 65. Rock singer Ann Wilson (Heart) is 63. Singer-dancer Paula Abdul is 51. Actress Zoe Saldana is 35.

M-U’s Martin commits to Indiana

SPORTS CALENDAR TODAY Legion Baseball Troy Post 43 at Piqua Legion (7 p.m.)

BY COLIN FOSTER Associate Sports Editor To say Wes Martin has had a good year would be an understatement. This past fall, Martin was a key guy in the trenches for the Milton-Union football team on its way to a Division IV regional final appearance. Just a few weeks ago, the junior made his first trip to the Division II state

WEST MILTON track meet in the shot put. “It’s been pretty exciting,” Martin said about his junior year. “We made it real far into football season, that was huge, then I was able to carry it through in track by making it to state in my first year of throwing. That kind of added to the excitement.” Well, his year just got even

Cincinnati Reds shortstop Zack Cozart (2) jumps over Pittsburgh Pirates’ Russell Martin after Martin stole second base in the first inning of a baseball game Tuesday in Cincinnati.

Reds shut down Pirates end Latos’ streak, top Cincy 4-0 CINCINNATI (AP) — Pedro Alvarez singled home a pair of runs in the first inning, and the Pittsburgh Pirates ended Mat Latos’ streak of 21 regular-season starts without a loss, beating the Cincinnati Reds 4-0 on Tuesday night. Latos (6-1) hadn’t lost a regular-season game since last August, setting a club-record streak of avoiding defeat. He couldn’t overcome Pittsburgh’s three-run first inning. Charlie Morton (1-1) was better during his second start since returning from elbow surgery. He gave up three singles and threw 61 pitches in 5 1-3 innings, starting the Pirates toward their NL-leading 12th shutout.

Latos had nine of Cincinnati’s 17 strikeouts, which matched the club’s nineinning record. The Reds also had 17 strikeouts on opening day, but that came in a 13inning loss against the Los Angeles Angels. Cincinnati’s lineup managed four hits while getting shut out for the second time in their last four games. The Ohio River rivals have split the first two games of their four-game series, leaving the Reds a half-game ahead of the Pirates. They’ve been right behind the NL Central-leading Cardinals most of the season. There was an undercurrent from Monday’s game, when Reds closer Aroldis Chapman

threw an up-and-in fastball that leveled Neil Walker. The Pirates weren’t happy about the pitch’s location. Morton’s first pitch plunked Shin-Soo Choo on the leg. Morton also threw one inside to Joey Votto, who refused to budge from the box. Votto flied out, and that was the end of the drama. The focus shifted back to Latos’ long winning streak. The right-hander hadn’t lost since Aug. 24, when the Cardinals beat the Reds 8-5. In the last 21 starts, he’d gone 100 with a 2.80 ERA. The Reds were 17-4 during that streak. Also, Latos had never lost to the Pirates, going 4-0 in eight starts with a 2.29 ERA.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Michael Brantley’s sacrifice fly capped Cleveland’s three-run eighth inning, rallying the Indians to a 4-3 win over the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night. Held to one run and three hits over seven innings by Ervin Santana, the Indians finally strung something together in the eighth off Kelvin Herrera (35) and Tim Collins. Michael Bourn and Jason Kipnis delivered RBI hits before Brantley drove in Mike Aviles with the go-ahead run. Cody Allen (2-0), whose throwing error in the eighth helped the Royals take a 3-1 lead, got the win. Vinnie Pestano gave up three singles and a walk in the ninth but held on for his second save. The Royals lost for just the third time in 14 games and missed a chance to move over .500 for the first time since May 18. They probably should have tied it in the ninth when Alcides Escobar singled to right with one out and runners at first and second. But David Lough ran past third base coach Eddie Rodriguez’s stop sign, and got caught in a rundown between home and third. Lough got back to the bag safely, but Mike Moustakas was also there and was tagged out. It appeared Lough would have scored easily as right fielder Drew Stubbs’ throw was off target. Pestano settled down and got Eric Hosmer on a groundout with the bases loaded as the Indians got their 10th comefrom-behind win. The Indians did next to nothing against Santana, but they pounced on Kansas City’s bullpen in the eighth.

Duncan sparks Spurs to 1st-half lead MIAMI (AP) — Tim Duncan scored 25 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lift the San Antonio Spurs to a 50-44 halftime lead over the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night. Duncan made 11 of 13 shots in a performance straight out of 2003 and Kawhi Leonard added 10 points and five boards as the Spurs looked to close out the Heat and win their fifth NBA title. Mario Chalmers broke out of a shooting slump to score 14 points and LeBron James added nine points, five assists and three boards for the Heat, who trailed the best-of-seven series 3-2 and needed to win to keep their hopes of defending their championship alive. Game 7, if necessary, is Thursday night in Miami. Duncan hit his first eight shots of the game, conjuring the dominant form that brought four titles to San Antonio between 1999 and 2007. But he long ago handed the reins of the Spurs offense over to Parker, letting the speedy French point guard take over as Duncan grew older. Until Tuesday night.

After getting a vintage performance from Manu Ginobili in Game 5 to take control of the series, the Spurs got a throwback effort from Duncan to start Game 6. With the Heat leading 40-33 and threatening to pull away with 7:30 to go in the first half, Duncan scored San Antonio’s next 13 points to start a 17-4 run that closed the half. Chalmers’ floater gave the Heat a seven-point lead, and the charged up home crowd sensed that their team was finding that fifth gear that had eluded them so often in this series. That’s when Duncan went back to work to keep the Spurs in the game. The old man blew past Chris Bosh for a crafty left-handed layup, scored on a put-back and took Chris Andersen wherever he wanted to during the surge, finishing it off with a dunk that gave the Spurs a 46-44 lead with 1:24 to play in the half.

Sudden scratch


Hossa scratch part of NHL injury culture BOSTON (AP) — Marian Hossa is one of the Chicago Blackhawks’ top scorers, with three gamewinning goals already this postseason. And then, suddenly, he wasn’t in the lineup for a team that needed all the scoring it can get. Hossa’s surprise scratch from Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals and the one-word explanation, “upper,” for the part of his body that was injured is part of a long-running catand-mouse game NHL teams play on the theory that any information about injuries is a competitive disadvantage. “I think that’s selfexplanatory,” said Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville, declining to explain why he declined to explain the secrecy surrounding Hossa’s injury. Tuukka Rask stopped 28 shots from the depleted Blackhawks to help the Bruins win 2-0 on Monday night and move two wins from their second Stanley Cup title in three seasons. Game 4 is tonight in Boston before the series returns to Chicago for a fifth game. Hossa is expected to play in Game 4, Quenneville allowed, but only after making clear that “I’m not going to get exactly what the injury is or where it occurred.” “It’s sort of a secret society in the hockey world and in the injury world,” Blackhawks forward Dave Bolland said. “You don’t want other teams having any injury information at all.” Asked if he had seen Hossa or had a chance to talk to him, Bolland said, “I don’t know.” You don’t know if you’ve seen him or talked to him? “I don’t know if I’ve seen him,” Bolland repeated with a sly smile. Hossa’s mysterious injury may have been a turning point in Game 3, but it is hardly unusual in the secretive world of hockey injuries. Players and coaches say they just don’t talk about what’s hurting, partly because they don’t want to seem weak in a sport where they hit each other for a living. But mostly, they don’t want let the other team know where to aim. “If I’m going out to battle and I have an injury to any part of my body, I

Wilson, who will enter into this third year as IU head coach this season, saw Martin’s athletic ability, speed and size as too good to pass up. “He focused a lot on my athleticism with me being 6-3, 290,” said Martin about the meeting with Wilson. “He focused a lot on how I move, my quickness, my speed for being a big guy


and my ability to play the game, obviously. Those were his big things.” Martin said he expects to play either guard or center for the Hoosiers. Prior to his commitment to IU, he had offers from MAC schools Miami (OH), Bowling Green, Kent State, Ball State and Ohio. Martin had also sparked interest from Big Ten schools Illinois and Purdue. The offer from IU, however, was his first official one from a Big Ten school.

After being scratched in Game 3, Hossa is expected to return tonight for Game 4. don’t want the other side to know what it is,” Bruins forward Shawn Thornton said. Injury information can also help the opponent strategize. Quenneville was so concerned about giving the Bruins advance notice of even a few minutes that he didn’t let substitute Ben Smith skate in the warmup even though there was a chance he would need to play. “I just didn’t want to tip our hand that there’s something going on,” the coach said. “Ben was ready. I knew he was doing everything,” Quenneville said. “We were hopeful that Hoss was playing, and Ben was doing everything to get ready. He was ready.” It worked. “I’m still surprised,” Thornton said. “I don’t know what happened to him.” No hard feelings, Bruins coach Claude Julien said. After all, he would do and has done the same thing. “I respect that from other teams. When you’re playing against each other, you know exactly where

everybody is coming from,” Julien said. “There’s times where you have to protect your players, and I understand it. I know it’s frustrating for you guys as media. You’re trying to share that information. The most important thing for us, we can take the heat for that, is protecting your players.” So, how to tell if an injury is minor? When a team actually admits it exists. “I’ll share one with you: Yesterday in a warmup, Zdeno Chara fell down, got a cut over the eye,” Julien said, making light of the mishap in the way that only a coach two wins from an NHL title will do. “I’ll let you know about that. That’s not a hidden injury. “If it’s something that doesn’t put your player in danger, I don’t see why you shouldn’t talk about it,” he said. Players say they don’t have to be told not to discuss injuries; it’s as much a part of the culture as Canadian accents and playoff beards. Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp said he doesn’t remember when he

first learned the subject was off-limits, but it was long before he reached the NHL. And hockey players are not alone. “It’s not just here,” Thornton said. “I don’t think Bill Belichick is (listing) all the injuries they have, either.” But even the notoriously uncommunicative New England Patriots coach is required by NFL rules to say what body part is injured. NHL coaches have to narrow it only to “upper body” or “lower body,” which means a player with a concussion and one with a broken finger would have the same diagnosis. During the playoffs, information is even scarcer. “It’s that time of year where everybody’s kind of battling. I would say that not just injuries, strategy, all that kind of information we’re not going to talk about,” Sharp said. “It’s all part of being this close to the ultimate goal.” And does he have any injuries he cares to mention? “No comment.”

After 16 consecutive years of always showing up at Wimbledon, winning five titles along the way, Venus Williams pulled out of the grass-court Grand Slam tournament Tuesday, citing a lower back injury. Williams, who turned 33 on Monday, never had missed Wimbledon since making her debut there in 1997, although she lost in the first round a year ago. She won the singles trophy it happens to be called the Venus Rosewater Dish in 2000-01, 2005 and 200708, to go with two more major championships at the U.S. Open in 2000-01. But Williams has been dealing with a bad back for a while, playing only three matches in the last twoplus months. She was clearly hampered by the

injury during a three-set, three-hour loss to 40thranked Urszula Radwanska of Poland in the first round of the French Open last month, then cited her back when she and younger sister Serena withdrew from the doubles competition in Paris. The older Williams said after the singles loss at Roland Garros her first opening-round exit there in a dozen years that the inflammation in her back made it painful to serve hard, limiting one of the best parts of her game. Once ranked No. 1, Williams is currently No. 34. Still learning to live as a professional athlete with an energy-sapping autoimmune disease, Sjogren’s syndrome, she has two first-round losses in the past four Grand Slam tournaments.

Bengals to star on ‘Hard Knocks’ for second time NEW YORK (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals will star in the training camp documentary show “Hard Knocks” for the second time in five NFL seasons. HBO announced Monday that the Bengals would be featured in the popular series, which premieres Aug. 6. Cincinnati last appeared on it in 2009. The Miami Dolphins were last season’s team.

The Bengals no longer have receiver Chad Johnson then Ochocinco as a TV attraction. Cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was recently charged with assault, the latest in his string of legal troubles. Cincinnati went on to win the AFC North in 2009. The eighth season of “Hard Knocks” will air five episodes on Tuesday nights through Sept. 3.

Hacking probe into Ohio rape case targets Ky. man

Top-ranked UNC eliminates LSU

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A central Kentucky man who goes by the online name KyAnonymous said Tuesday he is the target of an investigation into who hacked into an Ohio high school’s computer and posted a video related the rape of a teenage girl at an alcohol-fueled party. Hacker activists helped propel coverage of the Steubenville rape case, in part by re-posting a 12minute Internet video showing a former student joking about the attack and the victim, a West Virginia teenager. Deric Lostutter, 26, told The Associated Press he posted the video on the school’s athletics booster website, but he said he didn’t hack into the site or any computers. He said someone else, who he wouldn’t identify, hacked into the website. Two football players were convicted of rape. Ma’Lik Richmond, 16, was sentenced to at least a year in the state juvenile detention system. Trent Mays, 17, was sentenced to at

least two years in juvenile detention. He was also convicted of photographing the underage girl naked. Lostutter believes he could go to prison for posting the video. “I’m facing 25 years in prison when rapists face one,” Lostutter said. Lostutter’s attorney, Jason Flores-Williams of New Mexico, works with the Whistleblowers Defense League. He said he expected his client to be indicted in as soon as a few weeks. “Deric is innocent and this is a waste of taxpayer dollars. We’ll be battling,” he said. It’s not clear whether he will face any charges. The Steubenville case gained international attention through the work of bloggers and hacker activists who alleged a cover-up to protect other football players. The suspicions hinged on the presence of other students when the attack happened, including at least two who captured it on their cellphones.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Brian Holberton homered, freshman Trent Thornton pitched a strong seven innings and No. 1 national seed North Carolina extended its stay at the College World Series with a 4-2 victory over LSU on Tuesday. The Tar Heels (58-11) play North Carolina State or UCLA in an elimination game Thursday. The No. 4seeded Tigers (57-11) went 0-2 in their first CWS appearance since winning the 2009 national title. Holberton’s 12th homer of the season staked the Tar Heels to a 2-0 lead in the first inning against LSU starter Cody Glenn (7-3), and Colin Moran singled to make it 3-0 in the third. Thornton (12-1) worked around two singles and three walks to hold the Tigers scoreless until the fifth. Leading 4-2, Thornton walked Christian Ibarra to start the eighth and was relieved by Chris McCue. McCue hit Sean McMullen in the arm with 2-2 pitch to load the bases with two out. That brought up Mark Laird, who had a double and four singles in his first eight CWS at-bats. But McCue got Laird to fly out to short left field and

McCue worked a perfect ninth for his second save. Carolina, which lost 8-1 to North Carolina State in its CWS opener, remains the only team in the country to not lose back-to-back

games this season. The Tar Heels are outscoring opponents 85-30 after losses, and their 58 wins are a school record. LSU scored only three runs in two CWS games. National freshman of the

year Alex Bregman, who was batting a team-leading .374, was hitless in eight atbats. Raph Rhymes, batting .337, was 0 for 9 in Omaha and stranded eight base runners against the Tar Heels. Christian Ibarra, batting .311, finished the season hitless in his last 22 at-bats. Thornton, who has served in every capacity on the Carolina pitching staff, was making sixth start in 29 appearances but first since March 27. He got the call over available weekend starters Hobbs Johnson and Benton Moss, both of whom have struggled of late. Thornton came in as the Tar Heels’ best pitcher in the postseason, having allowed two runs in 21 1-3 innings. Thornton threw a careerhigh 114 pitches in his seven-plus innings, allowing two runs on nine hits and four walks. Glenn, making first appearance since starting the opening game of the SEC tournament May 22, last just two innings. He allowed three runs on five hits. The teams were meeting for the first time since the 2008 CWS, when Carolina beat the Tigers twice.
