County to receive FEMA funds

Dawn of a New Era Brewer takes over as Troy’s coach

BY WILL E SANDERS Ohio Community Media Miami County is one of 37 Ohio counties that will receive federal aid following a tumultuous wind storm that struck the state at the end of June that knocked out power for days and dealt more than $850,000 in damages. Kenny Artz, the director of the Miami County Emergency

TROY Management Agency, said the preliminary damage estimate from the June 29 severe storms in this county totals $863,078. “That estimate could go up or down a little,” Artz said. “The process is ongoing.” Local governments in the county are now eligible for the federal funds to assist with repairs and

other costs associated with or caused by the storms, which created massive power outrages throughout Ohio. The funds will be provided through FEMA’s Public Assistance Program, which repays local governments for “eligible storm-related response efforts, including debris removal, emergency protective measures and the repair, replacement of restoration of disaster-damaged, publicly owned

facilities,” according to Tamara McBride of the Ohio EMA. The funds were made available as a result of President Barack Obama granting Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s request for a federal disaster declaration, a press release issued by Kasich’s administration stated. “I appreciate the President’s favorable response to my request

Romney, Ryan pulled into abortion debate RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Republicans Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan found themselves dragged into a debate Wednesday over hot-button social issues and answering for differences between their personal positions on abortion, just days before a national convention aimed at showing a unified Republican party. The discussion lingered while President Barack Obama and Romney tangled from afar over issues like education and the deficit. The GOP ticket dealt with a renewed focus on abortion in the wake of comments about “legitimate rape” from Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin, remarks that have caused an uproar and generated demands from Romney and party leaders for the congressman to quit the race. The questions over abortion overshadowed events by Romney and Ryan in the battleground states of Iowa, North Carolina and Virginia three states which Obama carried in 2008 ahead of next week’s Republican convention in Tampa, Fla. Obama rallied supporters in Nevada, the state with the nation’s highest unemployment rate of 12 percent, before heading to New York for a basketball-themed fundraiser. Since selecting Ryan as his running mate, Romney has faced questions about how his policy positions differ from those espoused by Ryan, the architect of a controversial budget blueprint that would dramatically alter Medicare. On abortion, Romney does not oppose abortion in cases of rape and incest or if it will save the mother’s life, while Ryan does oppose abortion in cases of rape and incest. Ryan, in an interview with a Pennsylvania TV station, emphasized Romney’s role at the top of the ticket, saying he was proud of his record on the social issue. “I stand by my pro-life record in Congress. It’s something I’m proud of. But Mitt Romney is the top of the ticket and Mitt Romney will be president and he will set the policy of the Romney administration,” he said. Ryan defended a bill he cosponsored in the House to permanent-

ly ban federal funding for abortion except in cases of incest and “forcible” rape. That language, which was eventually changed, would have narrowed the exception for rape victims. Akin and 225 other members of the House, including 11 Democrats, also cosponsored the bill. Akin, who is challenging Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in a race that could determine control of the Senate, was asked in an interview that aired Sunday if abortion should be legal in cases of rape. Akin said: “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” Obama mocked Akin’s words during a fundraiser in New York City, telling supporters Wednesday night that Akin, though a member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, “somehow missed science class.” Obama added: “It’s representative of the desire to go backwards instead of forwards and fight fights that we thought were settled 20 or 30 years ago.” Democrats have tried to tactfully steer the debate over abortion to appeal to female voters, including those living in hotly contested suburbs in battleground states such as Colorado, Florida, Ohio and Virginia. Obama did not address Akin’s comments while campaigning in Nevada, but his campaign honed in on the legislation related to federal funding for abortions. Obama campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith said Ryan had “worked with Todd Akin to try to narrow the definition of rape and outlaw abortion even for rape victims.” A new AP-GfK poll found that Obama maintained a slight lead among women voters, with 50 percent of women backing the president and 44 percent supporting Romney. The gender gap was similar to a finding in a June AP-GfK poll. Men were more closely divided in the latest AP-GfK poll, with 49 percent for Romney and 44 percent for Obama. In the suburbs, the candidates were closely divided, with 47 percent supporting Romney and 44 percent for Obama.

Akin has refused to heed calls to step down and now would need a court order by Sept. 25 to leave the race. After that point, there would be no way to remove his name from the ballot. Ryan called the Missouri congressman and unsuccessfully urged him to exit the race, but he said he had no other plans to speak to him about it. “He’s going to run his campaign and we’re going to run ours,” Ryan said of Akin. Campaigning in Iowa, Romney avoided talk of social issues during a stop at a manufacturing company in Bettendorf, instead criticizing Obama for failing to bring down the nation’s debt and deficit. Later, during a fundraiser in Little Rock, Ark., Romney called Wednesday a “very revealing day” because of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office’s warnings of a new recession including unemployment rates of more than 9 percent by late next year if Washington continues its stalemate over taxes and spending cuts. Romney said the CBO’s conclusions were “unacceptable.” “This is a challenging time for America and one thin g I will do is I will finally cut federal spending, encourage growth and as a result of those two things get America to a balanced budget,” Romney said. Obama focused on education for a second straight day in Nevada, telling supporters at a North Las Vegas high school that GOP budget plans crafted by Ryan would force dramatic education cuts even as Romney’s plan would “shower” tax cuts on millionaires. “I’ve got a question for Gov. Romney. How many teachers’ jobs are worth another tax cut for millionaires and billionaires? How many kids in Head Start are worth a tax cut for somebody like me who doesn’t need it? How many grants and loans for college students are worth a tax cut for Gov. Romney who certainly doesn’t need it?” Obama asked the crowd. Romney countered that he heard the president “say how he wants to invest in young people. Let me tell you, if you want to


invest in young people … you need to make sure that our K-12 schools are getting better. That’s No. 1. Not just talk, but actually getting better.” He added that the nation needs “to make sure that we create jobs in this country so people coming out of school can get a good job.” Beyond the rallies, both campaigns were trying to sway voters on television. Romney’s campaign released a new ad linking Obama’s divisive health care overhaul to cuts in Medicare. The ad, titled “Nothing’s Free,” asserts that Obama raided $716 billion from Medicare in order to pay for his health care law. It’s the first ad Romney’s campaign has run focusing on health care since the Supreme Court upheld Obama’s federal mandate in June. Romney has promised to roll back the Medicare spending cuts approved under Obama, while Ryan kept the cuts in his budget proposals. The campaign did not say where the health care ad would run. The Obama campaign released an ad suggesting Ryan’s education cuts would lead to larger class sizes. A couple featured in the ad bemoans the prospect of increased class size and says Romney “cannot relate” to their desire to have the best public education system for their children. The ad is running in Virginia and Ohio. With Republicans closing in on their convention, Obama’s team is trying to steal some of the spotlight. Obama planned campaign events on college campuses in Iowa and Colorado on Tuesday including an evening rally in Fort Collins, Colo., on the GOP convention’s first night and in Virginia on Wednesday. Vice President Joe Biden was traveling to Florida on Monday and Tuesday, including a stop in Tampa, and popular first lady Michelle Obama was appearing on “The Late Show with David Letterman” on the GOP convention’s third night, a show that will air shortly after Ryan’s address to the convention. Obama won all four states in 2008 and are considered pivotal to Romney’s path to the White House this year.


• CONTINUED FROM 1 “It’d be nice if we had more detail, but we got pretty much what we need,” Herman said.”We are going to more forward and keep preparing as we have.” Herman said parts of the state have had reporting problems, causing the delay, yet all data from Troy City Schools is correct and submitted on time. The board also launched a national search for a new state superintendent. Acting superintendent Michael Sawyers recommended delaying the report card release due to an ongoing investigation by state auditor Dave Yost into alleged irregularities in reporting student attendance. The board will revisit the issue when it meets Sept. 10-11. “The report cards are intended to give an accurate picture of how well schools are doing and they shouldn’t be released with a cloud hanging over their reliability,” Sawyers said. “Auditor Yost is expected to release his findings later in the fall and until those findings are out and any problems corrected, it would be irrespon-

sible to issue report cards.” The delay also will include the Sept. 1 release of the Performance Index rankings for each district, community school and STEM school. The board also agreed Monday that its Executive Committee will launch a nationwide search for a new state superintendent. The committee will meet Aug. 23 to develop criteria for hiring a search firm. The board also confirmed that Sawyers will continue to serve as Acting Superintendent under the terms of a succession plan that went into effect when Stan Heffner, state superintendent of public instruction, retired earlier this month.

to make these funds available to local governments,” Kasich stated. “In many communities the response efforts were intense and damage to public buildings was costly and these funds will provided needed relief.” Locally, Artz said he anticipates receiving the funds for distribution throughout the county in the “next couple of

weeks.” “This process takes awhile,” he said, adding he is glad the funds were made available. Other nearby counties receiving federal aid include Auglaize, Champaign, Clark and Shelby counties. Statewide preliminary damage figures show more than $29.5 million in damages took place as a result of the June storms.

Thefts • CONTINUED FROM 1 “In the general conversation, he mentioned that he might possibly be involved in all the car break-ins,” said Capt. Joe Long. While police are unsure the exact number of thefts that took place,

Long said Wells estimated that 200 took place during the last five months. However, after divulging the information, Wells recanted his story, Long said. The Troy Police Department is investigating thefts outside its jurisdiction as well.

Tipp man, comedian were pen pals BY MELODY VALLIEU Staff Writer A Tipp City man, who befriended Phyllis Diller some 20 years ago, said he will miss her great sense of humor and good heart. Diller, 95, a comedian who was well-known for taking shots at herself, died Monday in Los Angeles at the age of 95. Joe Miller said he first became acquainted with Diller when he called into a radio station in 1995 to answer a question about who he would like to spend a dream Valentine’s Day date with and he told them Phyllis Diller. Employees at the radio station in contact with Diller — who was born in Lima — joked with her about getting a single vote. She asked the radio station to track him down. Miller was then invited to attend a Dayton performance of Diller’s at the Loft Theatre and following the show he and his wife, Ann, were taken backstage to meet with Diller, who was 77 at the time. Following that meeting, the two began a longtime mail correspondence. “It was just a great experience, knowing you are standing there with a legend of comedy,” said Miller, who said he was surprised by Diller’s petite frame. Miller said throughout the years, she would relay stories of her famed life. He said she told him that her and Bob Hope enjoyed pulling pranks on each other. Diller said Hope would hide her wigs minutes before she was to go on stage, and she would hide his ties. “They just went crazy over each other,” Miller said. “They had a good time.” Diller, who lived in the wealthy Brentwood, Calif., neighborhood, wrote Miller about living only doors away from O.J. Simpson when he was accused of murdering his ex-wife and her boyfriend. He said she told him how the police swarmed the property and took evidence. “She said ‘People are crazy,’” Miller said. Over the years Miller said Diller would send gifts to him, his wife and children, Jessie and Josie,

and he would send gifts back — although Diller asked that he not. She said he once sent a tape of Henny Youngman — another comedian they

both respected. His children would receive toys — like a light and siren bicycle helmet for their son who was learning to ride. His wife even

received a sweater from Diller’s designer collection. “She loved it; we still have the sweater. She had a good heart; she was just a wonderful woman,” Miller said. “Her eyes just sparkled. She had beautiful eyes.” Miller said Diller gave him her number in one of the letters and asked that he call sometime. He said he called her only once, not wanting to seem like an overzealous fan. “She was just down to Earth people,” he said. “Just very nice.” Diller also admitted a weakness to Miller — she loved to gamble. Miller said her letters would include stories about her frequent trips to Lake Tahoe. “She would say that my worse vice that I got is that I love to gamble,” said Miller, who said roasts with Dean Martin were one of his favorite Diller performances. Miller said being a lifelong fan of Diller’s make her death sad, but he’s happy that she touched so many in life. “I love people that have humor and make people laugh,” Miller said. “They say laughing is good for your health. And she had that to offer. “She is going to be very well missed. I hate to see someone like that come to an end. You could tell she was a caring person.”

BY WILL E SANDERS Ohio Community Media TROY — After missing the last three sentencing hearings due to hospitalization, a comm o n pleas court judge issued a capias warr a n t against a West MOWERY Milton man involved in a two-vehicle traffic collision on Fenner Road in January where sheriff’s deputies found a large quantity of marijuana inside his automobile. Michael W. Mowery, 62, was scheduled for a sentencing hearing Monday but only his defense attorney, Jose Lopez, showed. Lopez told the judge his client, who has not appeared at the last three scheduled sentencing hearings, remains at a hospital. Mowery was convicted of trafficking drugs (marijuana) and possession of criminal tools, both felonies, at a court hearing earlier this year following the traffic crash, which resulted in Mowery being flown via CareFlight to a Dayton hospital. He, along with the other crash victim, later made full recoveries from the injuries sustained from

TROY the car accident. Upon investigating the collision deputies found a pound of marijuana in Mowery’s Jeep and a search warrant was later executed at Mowery’s Iddings Road home where authorities recovered 6 pounds of pot, drug paraphernalia and about $5,500 in cash. The money is subject to court forfeiture. The felony charges stem from a vehicle crash that Mowery and another motorist were involved in Jan. 12 that resulted in Mowery’s hospitalization after a pickup truck struck his vehicle, forcing it to leave the roadway before crashing through a guardrail and into a ravine along Fenner Road. Mowery, who was on federal parole at the time, faces up to six years in prison. Court documents state Mowery was arrested on first-degree murder charges for the July 28, 1972, murder of 20-year-old Troy resident Terry Smith in Troy decades ago. Mowery, 24 at the time, walked up to Smith outside of a downtown Troy bar, the Arbor Bar, and shot the man in the chest, those documents explain. Mowery, a U.S. Army deserter, was later convicted of manslaughter and was sentenced to up to 20 years in prison, but he served 13 years and was released in 1986, court documents disclose.

TROY — Four sex offenders, including a convicted rapist who engaged in sex with a 15-year-old girl, a man who was busted for child pornography by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and a man convicted of sexual abuse dating back more than a decade all made their way before a common pleas court judge Monday for sentencing hearings.

TROY Donald E. Wagner, 40, of Piqua, who was convicted of attempted gross sexual imposition for an incident that dates back more than a decade, was sentenced to serve the next four years on community control sanctions and was labeled as a sexually oriented offender under older state statues. The designation requires him to register as such for the next decade. According to his indictment, Wagner had “sexual contact” with a female juvenile who was under the age of 13 at the time of the crime, which allegedly took place from Feb. 25, 2000 to Feb. 25, 2002. Wagner apologized in court to his family, but not to the victim, both of whom were present. Judge Robert Lindeman then asked Wagner if he wanted to apologize to his victim and Wagner paused and then apologized to her,



too. The victim spoke in court and stated she was sorry. “You’re the victim,” Lindeman responded. “It’s not your fault. It’s his fault. He is the adult.” Wagner faced up to five years in prison. Also facing a judge Monday was a Pleasant Hill man who was busted by an Internet task force investigating sex crimes against children. Anthony S. Snyder, 23, was sentenced to prison for four years and labeled a tier II sex offender, which requires him to register for the next 15 years in the county where he resides, works or receives an education. Snyder was found to be in possession of child pornography and was subsequently convicted on two felony charges of pandering sexually oriented material, which carries a maximum, combined prison sentence of three years in prison. Snyder’s indictment states he committed the sex crimes March 16 and 21. The Miami County Sheriff ’s Office arrested



Snyder after receiving information from the Internet task force, which was conducting an investigation related to individuals who were either looking at, downloading or sharing child pornography. A convicted rapist also learned his fate at his sentencing hearing. Brent W. Long, 20, of Troy, was sentenced to four years in prison and also was labeled as a tier III sex offender for his conviction of unlawful sexual conduct involving a minor, which requires him to register as such for the next 25 years. Long committed the offense May 22 incident at a Troy home. It involved a 15-year-old girl. Since Long was previously convicted of rape, he faced the maximum prison sentence of eight years behind bars. Police reports state Long and the victim were engaged in consensual sexual relations at the girl’s Troy home when the mother of the victim walked in. After cooperating with the mother after she caught the couple, Long later fled from the home, jumped a

fence and wasn’t apprehended until a short time later, reports disclose. The remaining sex offender was Nathaniel S. Shearer, 20, of Piqua, also was convicted of two counts of unlawful sexual conduct involving a minor in a case involving a 13-year-old female victim. Shearer received a probation sentence of four years and was labeled as a tier II sex offender. Authorities say Shearer committed the alleged violations in December involving a student who attends Piqua Junior High School. Shearer allegedly attempted to play down the sexual encounters with the minor while being interviewed by detectives, but later confessed to having sex with the girl on two separate occasions, police reports show. Police reports also state Shearer and the victim exchanged sexually graphic pictures with one another electronically. The judge told Shearer that if he doesn’t successfully complete his probation he will serve 17 months in prison.

the injuries to the newborn Danzeisen “could give no explanation,” according to police reports. If convicted as charged of the second-degree felony Danzeisen faces up to eight years in prison.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Oshkosh (Wis.) Northwestern on Boomer retirement: There was very little in the way of surprises in a recent survey of Baby Boomers conducted by the American Association of Retired Persons or AARP as it is more widely known. But there are lessons to be learned from the headlines produced by the survey. Boomers, who are on the cusp of retirement, are more anxious about the future than they are about the current state of the economy. Of course the current state of the economy contributes significantly to their concerns about the future. Simply put, Boomers, who range in age from 48 to 66-years-old, are more concerned about being able to afford living in retirement than they are about getting a job with benefits. … The angst being felt by Boomers stems from the political uncertainties facing Medicare and Social Security, two cornerstones of retirement planning. Adding to the anxiety reflected in the poll retirement is the fact that Boomers have largely ignored individual responsibility for their retirements. Many Boomers are entering their retirement years with very little in the way of savings. Past generations could count on defined benefit pension plans funded by the company for which they worked, many for a lifetime. Boomers saw most pension plans switched from defined benefits to defined contributions as companies sought to shed the expense of retirement plans. That meant that Boomers (and future generations) bore the responsibility of saving for their retirements, most commonly in 401(k) savings plan which offered a modest match by employers. The Employee Benefit Research Institute estimates that the average worker will need $900,000 in personal savings for retirement. Yet the institute says that “people within 10 years of retirement have saved an average of only $78,000.” … The lessons Boomers pass on to their children and grandchildren are: Do not count on government programs to finance retirement and begin saving for retirement now and if a 401(k) account is available, contribute at least enough to earn the employers match. The Oregonian, Portland, on the missing U.S. Farm Bill. The American agricultural crisis is impossible to miss. The worst drought in decades clutches most of the country in a death grip, with the worst impacts in the Southwest, the Midwest and parts of the Southeast. Only 26 percent of the nation’s corn crop is in good condition, compared with 62 percent a year ago. Herds of cattle ranchers are selling their stock early rather than keep trying to feed and water it. The crisis is impossible to miss. Except for the U.S. House of Representatives, which left for its August vacation — whoops, district work period — without passing a five-year farm bill, and now seems unlikely to manage one before the current measure lapses Sept. 30. Thomas Jefferson, who saw farmers as the bulwark of the republic, would have a whole additional reason to be dismayed at Washington today. Traditionally, the farm bill has been bipartisan, as the members drawing it up represented their local crops more than their party. This year, the Senate passed a bill by a good-sized 64-35 margin, and the House package managed an unusually bipartisan route through the Agriculture Committee. But the House leadership refused to bring it up for debate and a vote. Both bills have problems; the House bill cuts nutrition programs too much, the Senate bill includes a crop insurance formula likely to be very expensive. But without House floor consideration, followed by a HouseSenate conference committee, nothing gets fixed, and nothing gets passed. … Ranking Democrat Collin Peterson of Minnesota suggests: “A lot of these freshmen have not been around here long enough to know what they’re facing when they go home. They have no good answer to give their constituents about why they didn’t do this, and it’s going to make a very uncomfortable situation for them.” It should be. America’s farms deserve a farm bill.


Republicans are all liars To the Editor: Today’s Republican Party should call itself the “Liars Party.” Republican lies have invaded another country and started a 10-year war that cost billions

of dollars. The mess we’re are in today is the result of these lies. Modern society has made us a gloal society. We have to work with other countries. The Republicans want to rid the country of education, health care and anything that will make us a better country. They want to rewrite history.

They only care about themselves. The country doesn’t matter and the average person does not matter. Power and money are their goals. Patricia Vogt’s letter on Aug. 10 is right on.

Guest columnist: What I did on my summer vacation Daddy said after working at the Miami County Fair and writing previews for the upcoming football season, he was too tired to write his column this week and asked if I’d fill in. I told him I had a pretty busy summer, too, and maybe I was too tired to write his weekly column for him. To which he replied, “You’re a kid. You don’t know what tired is.” “What do you want me to write about?” I asked. “Just make it up,” he said. “That’s what I do every week.” I had a pretty good summer. I spent almost every day at the pool with my aunt Julie and my cousin Julia Rose. When mommy was on vacation, she and my little brother Max came to the pool with us as well. I greatly improved my swimming skills and even learned how to do a flip off the diving board. I asked daddy why he almost never came to the pool with us. He said, “Because nobody wants to see daddy without a shirt on. Nobody.” I told him mommy sometimes sees him without his shirt on at home. He said, “She doesn’t particularly want to, either, but she has to because

Sophie Fong Troy Daily News Guest Columnist we’re married. It’s in the rules.” I started going to gymnastics practice three days a week this summer. I worked really hard and was able to perfect my back handspring. It was fun watching the Olympic games on television. I asked my daddy if he thought I could do Olympics in the gymnastics some day. He said, “If you do, make sure you get a big endorsement deal from Wheaties. That way neither one of us will ever have to write columns ever again.” In addition to going to gymnastics practice and working hard, I also worked really hard on my jump rope skills and at the end of the summer I got picked to be on the Troy Pop Rocks jump rope team.

the team and he said, “I don’t know. Can you get an endorsement deal for jumping rope?” Mommy and daddy spent most of their summer doing chores around the house. When I asked mommy what her biggest chore was, she said, “Getting your father to help out with the chores.” Several times I saw mommy ask daddy when he was going to clean out the garage or mow the lawn or stain the deck. He always said, “I heard you the first time!” to mommy. Then she always said, “I know — but the first time I asked you was six months ago.” Of course, it wasn’t all work around the Fong house this summer. We also took some time out of our busy schedule to go to Indianapolis for a national cheerleading competition. While we were there, we went to the Indianapolis Zoo. My favorite part was seeing the dolphins swim underwater. Max’s favorite part was seeing the elephants spray water out of their trunks. Mommy’s favorite part was seeing the lions. When I asked daddy what his favorite part was, he said, “Watching the monkeys throw

clumps of dirt at one another.” I said, “Daddy, I’m pretty sure those weren’t clumps of dirt they were throwing at one another.” He said, “I know. That makes it even funnier, doesn’t it?” Max and I also celebrated our birthdays this summer. I turned 8, while Max turned 5. When I asked daddy how old he was, he said, “Much too young to feel this darn old.” Except I’m pretty sure he didn’t say “darn.” And I’m also pretty sure I shouldn’t repeat what he actually said, at least in the family publication you hold in your hand. All told, it was a pretty good summer. I caught some rays, ate lots of food off the grill and generally had the time of my life. I’m not sure I could pick what was my favorite part of the summer. I did ask daddy what his favorite part of the summer was, however. He said, “The end.” That daddy — he’s quite the kidder. I hope.

Report: Abbott building project moving along BY CECILIA FOX For the Troy Daily News With the exception of a 30-foot length of sewer pipe that needs to be replaced, the city is right on target with the utilities for the new Abbott facility. At the city council’s premeeting study session, council heard a construction update from City Engineer Scott Vagedes. The storm sewer, water main, and sanitary sewer are expected to be complete this week just ahead of the Aug. 31 deadline. Unfortunately, a gasket was flipped in a 30 foot section of the sanitary main under the northbound lane County Road 25-A during a mandrel pull and now that section of pipe must be replaced. A mandrel pull is a test that checks that checks the integrity of the pipe by pulling an object slightly narrower in circumference through the pipe. “There’s a gasket in there to keep it pressure tight and they caught what appears to be the bottom of it and rolled it. So it will not hold air pressure,” Vagedes said. Replacing the pipe means digging up a section of 25-A. There will be lane closures on 25-A west from the manhole at the intersection of Commerce Park Drive. Work on the pipe is set to begin Aug. 21 and, fortunately, will not cost the city any extra money. It is also not expected to keep the city from meeting the Aug. 31 deadline, as the section of 25-A should be repaved by the end of next week. According to Utilities Director Christy Butera, the Northern Area Water Authority (NAWA) technical committee recently hired a consultant to evaluate and

TIPP CITY design much needed improvements to the plant and come up with solutions for three of the plant’s big issues. Currently, the plant is experiencing build-up problems in the outfall pipe from NAWA to the river. A crust of calcium has built up in the 12 inch pipe, reducing it to 6-8 inches in some places. This restricts the flow of reject water to the river and causes it to overflow into the storm water basin and storm sewer. Butera explained to council that the buildup is not coming from drinking water, but the reject water that is pumped to the river. “The holding tank spills over into the detention basin during its high flow issues and then that water in turn spills over into the Kyle Park property,” Butera said. The build-up, which is approximately 98 percent calcium, was discovered when a manhole was installed on the outfall pipe to determine the problem. It is uncertain how much of the pipe is experiencing build-up problems. While a course of action has yet to be decided, Butera listed several possible solutions including sending acid through the pipe to dissolve the build-up. The second issue is with the plant’s four skids. The skid is a piece of equipment the water is run through to soften it. When three of the four skids operate at once, there are no problems. But when the fourth is activated, the plant shuts down. “You need a certain amount of pressure for water to get through the skids. So we’re fine when we have one skid on, two skids

on, three skids on, when we go to turn the fourth skid on, it’s enough that it robs the pressure from the plant and the plant shuts down. So there’s a hydraulic issue going on,” Butera explained. The plant was designed to have two degasifiers, but one was eliminated as an unnecessary expenditure when the plant was built. A degasifier forces air through the water which oxidizes iron and manganese and lets gases like methane, carbon dioxide and hydrogen escape. Though NAWA currently functions well with only one, another will be required when the new Abbott facility comes on line. According to Butera, having one degasifier only becomes problematic when the flow is over 4 million gallons, which currently happens about five times a year. “When Abbott comes online, that’s going to be an occurrence we’re going to see more often,” Butera said. There were only two items on the agenda for the council meeting itself: two motions that set the dates for two public hearings. Both will take place on Oct. 1 and will concern rezoning. The first is a public hearing to consider permanently zoning the recently annexed Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church campus to Conservation District (CD), due to most of the 130.284 acres being green space and farmland. At a planning board meeting in March, this area was temporarily zoned as CD. The second public hearing considers the rezoning of 17 and 25 N. Fourth St., a residential duplex and a former church, from Urban Residential (R-2) to Community Center (CC).

‘Carrie’s War’ author Nina Bawden, 87, dies LONDON (AP) — British writer Nina Bawden, who wrote children’s classics including the World War II story “Carrie’s War,” died Wednesday. She was 87. son, Robert Her Bawden, said the author died at her London home. The cause of death was not disclosed. Bawden wrote more than 40 novels for adults and children, including “The Peppermint Pig,” ”The Runaway Summer” and “Carrie’s War,” which drew on her experience as a wartime evacuee from London. Her children’s books won praise for their mix of incident-rich plots and realistic child’s-eye views of the world. “Carrie’s War” has been

filmed twice by the BBC and is read by British schoolchildren as part of the national curriculum. Bawden’s adult novel “Circles Of Deceit” was shortlisted for the 1987 Booker Prize. The writer became a campaigner for rail safety and victims’ rights after her husband Austen Kark was killed in a train crash in 2002. Bawden was seriously injured in the same accident, when a high-speed train derailed at Potters Bar, north of London. Her last published book, “Dear Austen,” dealt with the crash which killed seven people and injured more than 70 and its aftermath. Playwright David Hare, who included Bawden as a character in his play about

railways, “The Permanent Way,” said the novelist was “an uncomplicatedly good woman, whose long fight to obtain justice for the victims of the Potters Bar crash was a model of eloquence, principle and human decency.” publisher, Bawden’s Lennie Goodings of Virago Press, said she was “a gently fierce, clever, elegant, wickedly funny woman.” “She wrote slim books, but they were powerful and extraordinarily acute observations about what makes us human,” Goodings said. “I think she was especially good on what goes on behind the facade of good behavior.” Bawden is survived by her son, two step-daughters, nine grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.

It is 5:15 a.m. and 18year-old daughter Elizabeth just left for her job at the factory. My husband Joe left over an hour ago for his job. Elizabeth started at the factory a couple of weeks ago. She works 5 days a week. Her cleaning job didn’t have enough days of work each week for her. At the factory they make camping trailers. I miss Elizabeth’s good help here at home, but Susan and Verena are done detasseling corn now so they can help. School doors will open in a few weeks. The six youngest will all be in school then. This will be Verena’s last year, Kevin will be in the first grade, Lovina in second, Joseph in 4th, Loretta in sixth and Benjamin in seventh. Time is going by too fast! Yesterday was a long but enjoyable day as were attending the wedding of Albert Jr. and Louanna. It is a little bit harder to get started today after such long day yesterday. I was a cook at the wedding. I was happy that I managed to get my new dress sewn before the wedding. We had to wear a hunter green colored dress. Elizabeth and her friend Timothy were table-waiters. She had to wear a dark sage colored dress. Makes it so much easier for me since she has learned to cut out and sew her own dress, cape, and apron. She worked on it afternoons after work. We hired a driver to go the 22 miles to Albert’s for the wedding while Timothy and Elizabeth drove it with the horse and buggy. It took them a little over two hours to get there but they made it back home in 1 hour and 45 minutes. Seems the horse always knows when it is coming back home and wants to travel faster. The cooks are all assigned different jobs and my job was to help make gravy. My sisters Liz and


Lovina Eicher Troy Daily News Guest Columnist

Emma were also assigned to this job. We made many gallons and gallons of gravy for the day. Then we also had to help the tablewaiters at “table 9” wash their dishes after each setting. The couple had 24 tablewaiters to wait on the 12 tables. A boy and a girl were assigned to each table. 300 people could be served at one time. A delicious meal was served for both meals, the noon dinner and evening supper. On the menu was grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, mixed vegetables, salad, homemade bread, butter and grape jelly, grape jello pudding, mixed fruit, and pecan, peanut butter, and apple pie. For the evening meal they had baked chicken instead of grilled, ice cream and strawberries instead of mixed fruit ,with most of the rest the same menu as during the day. It really rained around noon but it quit and was cloudy. Made the weather cool for us cooks who work in the wedding wagon. With seven stoves going in there it seemed pleasant with the nice breeze the rain brought. Supper was at 5:30 for the adults and 7 p.m. for the youth. After the meal the youth sang songs the couple chose to sing. While singing, the wedding cake was cut and passed around. Our ride to go home came at 8:30. Certain couples were assigned to get the

You may want to consult a physician Dear Annie: I've been married for 14 years. The first few, everything was good, and then I stopped enjoying sex. I've seen several different doctors and had my hormones checked, and the verdict is that I am in great health for a 39-year-old. I think the main problem is, while I love my husband, I don't find him attractive. I'm not sure I ever did. I was 23 when we met and had never had a boyfriend. Men had never been interested in me until he came along. He is smart, funny and experimental in the bedroom, so it isn't like we haven't tried new things. He would do anything for me. But, Annie, having sex with him is a massive chore. I suspect he knows this, and I hate making him feel bad. I can't fake passion I don't feel. To tell the truth, I doubt another man would do it for me, either, and I'm not attracted to women. I feel like a part of me is missing, and I don't know how to find it. What now? — Berlin, Germany Dear Berlin: It is possible that you are asexual — meaning you are not attracted, sexually, to anyone. If this sounds like what you are experiencing, please look into AVEN (Asexual Visibility and Education Network) at However, if your libido previously was working fine and your lack of interest was sudden, you may want to get a referral to see a doctor who specializes in sexual disorders. A normal balance of hormones for most women may be insufficient for you. And of course, there are other possibilities — psychological issues, weight issues, nutrition deficiencies, medications — all of which can affect desire and libido. You owe it to yourself and your husband to figure this out. Good luck. Dear Annie: I am appalled by my own offspring. My son is 30, and my daughter-in-law is 27. My grandchild is 16 months old. We had been traveling and stopped at a restaurant. While we waited for our food, my son and his wife fed my grandchild her dinner. The end result was at least 10 pasta noodles dropped on the carpeted floor under the table. I cleaned them up, but it should have been the job of my so-called adult children to leave our table floor area clean. They felt it was no big deal to leave the mess. We most likely will never return to that restaurant, and they won't remember us anyway. But if it had been my place of business, I would have told us not to return until we had manners. What do you say? — Angry and Embarrassed. Dear Angry: We say calm down. Restaurants serve food. People — both children and adults — spill and drop food all the time. While one should not deliberately toss food around, and it behooves parents to keep the mess to a minimum and pick up what they can, it isn't necessary to leave the floor spotless. Cleaning up is part of the overhead costs, and the management does not expect patrons to do all the work. Dear Annie: I believe you were wrong in your advice to "Frustrated and Alone in Indianapolis," whose mother is difficult. You suggested he try to find better ways to deal with her. I, too, have had to deal with a mother like his. I finally had to make the same decision and cut all ties. It was not easy, but I am healthier for it. I don't miss my mother, only the idea of a mother. Some people are so toxic that you simply cannot have them in your life. — B.T. Dear B.T.: "Frustrated's" mother sounded like someone who has learned to push her son's buttons. We felt it might be worth figuring out how to respond differently to her and see whether that helps before cutting her off. We still do.

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. THURSDAY’S SOLUTION:


Recycling crayons will help keep them out of landfills Dear Readers: Millions of crayons are produced in the U.S. daily, and millions of children use them. But did you know that crayons are made out of a petroleumbased wax, and wind up in landfills when they don’t need to be? Here’s a Heloise helpful hint to prevent that! Next time you clean out the arts-and-crafts drawers or playroom, collect the broken, unused crayons to send to the National Crayon Recycle Program, which recycles old crayons and makes new ones! How cool is

Hints from Heloise Columnist that? The recycling program so far has collected more than 81,000 pounds of crayons. There is nothing special that you need to do, but if possible, leave the label on, because it makes it easier to

sort black, blue and purple. The only crayons NOT accepted are those made outside the U.S., due to questions about the ingredients. So, box up all your unwanted crayons and ship them off. You can use a small, flatrate box from the U.S. Postal Service, which can be shipped for only $5.35 to: Crayon Recycle Program, 2464 Downhill Dr. No. 3, Steamboat Springs, CO 80487. For additional information, it’s best to go to the website: You

can call 970-879-1966, but please be patient — the organization is moving to a new space and hopefully is swamped with donated crayons. — Heloise P.S.: This would be a fun, fantastic and worthwhile project for schools, day cares, etc. COLLAR STAYS Dear Heloise: I have been using the plastic “fake” cards that come in creditcard offers; I cut them up and make collar stays for my dress shirts. Now I have a free, endless supply of collar stays. — Keith G.,












HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Friday, Aug. 24, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel tired at work today. This is a temporary thing; don’t worry. However, be very careful taking the suggestions of others. Check everything out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might develop a crush or fall in love with someone today because you are temporarily fooled or deceived. (We all do this to ourselves from time to time.) Be careful. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Don’t take on too much with family business or chores at home today, because halfway through whatever happens, you might regret it. Go slowly, and be careful. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Encounters with others can be downright confusing today — perhaps even demoralizing! Take everything that everyone says with a grain of salt. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a poor day to make important financial decisions. Very likely, you do not have all the facts, or people are not playing straight with you. Don’t trust yourself to make important deals today. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Today is full of considerable confusion, vagueness and uncertainty. You might feel sympathy for someone and then later find out that you were just being a sucker. (Ouch.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Quite likely, you feel tired today. Don’t worry about this, because it’s just par for the course. Don’t work too hard. Do whatever you can to get more rest. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) When dealing with people in a group situation today, if you feel that something fishy is going on, it is! Don’t let others corral you into any kind of decision that you don’t want to make. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a poor day for discussions with bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. It’s as if there’s too much static in the air. “You’re breaking up. I can’t hear you.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might be enthralled by someone who seems to be profound and inspiring. While this might be the case, you also might be seduced by a clever salesperson. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Do not make important decisions about how to share or divide something today, especially inheritances or shared property. Wait until another day to agree to anything. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Relations with friends and partners might be disappointing today. Perhaps you expected a match. Perhaps you’re not even sure what’s going on. YOU BORN TODAY The word “casual” is not in your vocabulary. You are very careful and very thorough. You do your homework and research everything before you begin something. You love to solve puzzles and mysteries. Your ability to observe and investigate can help you in your job. An exciting year awaits you, because it’s the beginning of a new cycle. Open any door!

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Thursday, Aug. 23, the 236th day of 2012. There are 130 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 23, 1912, actor, dancer, director and choreographer Gene Kelly was born Eugene Curran Kelly in Pittsburgh. On this date: In 1775, Britain’s King George III proclaimed the American colonies to be in a

state of “open and avowed rebellion.” In 1914, Japan declared war against Germany in World War I. In 1973, a bank robberyturned-hostage-taking began in Stockholm, Sweden; the four hostages ended up empathizing with their captors, a psychological condition now referred to as “Stockholm Syndrome.” In 1982, Lebanon’s parliament elected Christian militia leader Bashir Gemayel president. (However, Gemayel was

assassinated some three weeks later.) Ten years ago: North Korean leader Kim Jong Il made his second visit to Russia in a year, meeting with President Vladimir Putin outside Vladivostok. Five years ago: A report by top U.S. spy analysts concluded the Iraqi government was strained by rampant violence, deep sectarian differences among its political parties and stymied leadership.

CDC: West Nile outbreak one of largest in U.S. ATLANTA (AP) — The current West Nile outbreak is one of the largest in the U.S., with four times the usual number of cases for this time of year, federal health officials said Wednesday. It’s still too early to say how bad the year will end up because most infections are reported in August and September. But never before have so many illnesses been reported this early, said Dr. Lyle Petersen, of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “We’re in the midst of one of the largest West Nile outbreaks ever seen in the United States,” said Petersen, who oversees the CDC’s mosquito-borne illness programs. So far, 1,118 illnesses have been reported, about half of them in Texas. In an average year, fewer than 300 cases are reported by mid-August. There have also been 41 deaths this year, the CDC said. And cases seem to be accelerating: about 400 of the cases were reported in just the last week. Experts think the mild winter, early spring and very hot summer helped stimulate mosquito breeding and the spread of the virus. Mosquitoes pick up the virus from birds they bite and then pass it on to people. CDC officials are also looking into the possibility that the virus mutated, but so far have no information showing that happened, Petersen said. West Nile virus was first diagnosed in Uganda in 1937, but no cases were reported in the U.S.


Derek Johnson, left, environmental unit supervisor, and Jeff Everett, right, an environmental technician, from Oklahoma City’s Storm Water Quality division of Public Works, remove a video camera from a storm drain in Oklahoma City, Tuesday. Crews treated the manhole’s mosquito infestation three days before with the larval inhibitor Altosid XR, and returned o check for mosquitos. until 1999 in New York. The virus gradually spread across the country. It peaked in 2002 and 2003, when severe illnesses reached nearly 3,000 and deaths surpassed 260. Last year was mild,

with fewer than 700 cases. Only about 1 in 5 infected people get sick. Early symptoms can include fever, headache and body aches. Some recover in a matter of days. But 1 in 150 infected people will develop severe symptoms

including neck stiffness, disorientation, coma and paralysis. Many illnesses probably go unreported, especially milder cases. In this year’s case count, more than half are severe, CDC officials said.

In recent years, cases have been scattered across the country. Hot spots are usually in southeast Louisiana, central and southern California, and areas around Dallas, Houston, Chicago and Phoenix. Those areas seem to have a combination of factors that include the right kinds of viruscarrying mosquitoes and birds, along with large numbers of people who can be infected, health officials say. Illnesses this year have been reported in 38 states, but the bulk of them have been in Texas, with a concentration in the Dallas area. It’s not clear why Texas is seeing so many cases, but it’s alarming. Twenty-one deaths have been reported in the state so far this year, which is more than all other years combined. Four of the Texas deaths were reported on Tuesday. Officials last week started aerial spraying for mosquitoes in Dallas County. But it’s too soon to measure the effect it takes between three and 14 days for people to develop symptoms after being infected by a mosquito. The best way to prevent West Nile disease is to avoid mosquito bites. Insect repellents, screens on doors and windows, and wearing long sleeves and pants are some of the recommended strategies. Also, empty standing water from buckets, kiddie pools and other places to discourage breeding.

Government gene sleuths stop superbug that killed 6 WASHINGTON (AP) — Over six frightening months, a deadly germ untreatable by most antibiotics spread in the nation’s leading research hospital. Pretty soon, a patient a week was catching the bug. Scientists at the National Institutes of Health locked down patients, cleaned with bleach, even ripped out plumbing and still the germ persisted. By the end, 18 people harbored the dangerous germ, and six died of bloodstream infections from it. Another five made it through the outbreak only to die from the

diseases that brought them to NIH’s world-famous campus in the first place. It took gene detectives teasing apart the bacteria’s DNA to solve the germ’s wily spread, a CSI-like saga with lessons for hospitals everywhere as they struggle to contain the growing threat of superbugs. It all stemmed from a single patient carrying a fairly new superbug known as KPC Klebsiella pneumoniae that resists treatment by one of the last lines of defense, antibiotics called carbapenems.

“We never want this to happen again,” said Dr. Tara Palmore, deputy hospital epidemiologist at the NIH Clinical Center. Infections at health care facilities are one of the nation’s leading causes of preventable death, claiming an estimated 99,000 lives a year. They’re something of a silent killer, as hospitals fearful of lawsuits don’t like to publicly reveal when they outfox infection control, yet no hospital is immune. Wednesday, government researchers published an unusually candid account of

last year’s outbreak, with some advice: Fast sequencing of a germ’s genome, its full DNA, may be essential. It can reveal how drug-resistant bacteria are spreading so that doctors can protect other patients. “This is not an easy story to tell,” said Dr. Julie Segre, a senior investigator at NIH’s National Human Genome Research Institute. She led the genetic sleuthing that found the bug hiding in sink drains and, most chilling, even in a ventilator that had been cleaned with bleach.

Infection-control specialists at other hospitals called this detailed anatomy of an outbreak, published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, important to share. “They were able to demonstrate that this sneaky little bug was able to stay alive and get transmitted in ways they hadn’t quite predicted before they had the detailed genetic information,” said Dr. Sara Cosgrove, associate hospital epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins University. “It’s very revealing.”

“Absolutely this could happen in any hospital,” said Dr. Deverick Anderson, co-director of a Duke University infection control network that advises smaller community hospitals. “This is really exciting stuff, cutting-edge technology, to try and better understand how these infections get spread,” he added. That in turn may lead to new protections, important because “there’s something that’s very, very wrong about going to a hospital and becoming more ill.”

Public Notice Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission

Section 5316 & 5317 Announcement of Application Cycle and Workshop on “How to Complete the Application”

The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC) is accepting Requests for Applications for the U.S. Department of Transportationʼs Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5316 (Job Access and Reverse Commute) and Section 5317 (New Freedom) Programs.

These programs provide federal funds to transit agencies, governmental authorities, private providers of public transportation and duly-formed private, non-profit organizations to cover 80% of capital costs or 50% of operating costs used in the provision of job-related transportation for low income job seekers, including specialized transportation services/routes and vehicles (Section 5316), and new transportation services for people with disabilities (Section 5317), in Montgomery, Greene, Miami and northern Warren Counties. New Freedom capital projects can include infrastructure such as sidewalk and bus stop improvements, which can be shown to result in greater access for people with disabilities to fixed-route buses. JARC funds can be used to construct bus shelters in low income neighborhoods.

The remaining 20% of the project's capital cost or 50% of project operating costs must be paid for by the requesting organization and cannot be Federal Department of Transportation funds.

If any agency is interested in applying for Section 5316 or 5317 funds, contact Bob Steinbach at the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission, (937) 223-6323, by Wednesday, September 5, 2012, by 4:00 p.m., or submit a request in writing to Bob Steinbach, C/O MVRPC, One South Main Street, Suite 260, Dayton, OH 45402, or by email at by that same deadline.

In addition, a free workshop entitled “How to Complete the Application” will be held Thursday, September 6, 2012, from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm, at the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commissionʼs Center for Regional Cooperation, 1100 West Third Street, in Dayton, Ohio.

For additional information about the Section 5316 (Job Access and Reverse Commute) and Section 5317 (New Freedom) Programs, contact Bob Steinbach, MVRPCʼs Director of Regional Initiatives, at (937) 2236323 or log on to

Haden booted from practice for rough play BEREA (AP) — Joe Haden’s training camp — and a stormy one for the Browns — ended before any of his teammates were finished. Arguably Cleveland’s best defensive player, Haden was kicked off the practice field Wednesday by coach Pat Shurmur, who felt the third-year cornerback was being too physical with rookie wide receiver Travis Benjamin during a passing drill on the final day of work-

outs open to fans. Haden was ordered to leave roughly an hour into the practice by an angry Shurmur, who declined to provide details of the incident during his news conference. “I’m not going to talk about it,” Shurmur chirped. “That’s between me and the player. I have a great deal of respect for Joe. If you want details, you’re going to have to find it on Twitter. My only apology is that

I used bad language and the fans were here to see it. Joe’s a great competitor and I appreciate what he does and who he is and that’s the last you’ll hear me talk about it.” Shurmur didn’t even let a reporter finish a follow-up question. “Don’t ask,” he snapped. “Don’t ask. You have to go somewhere else to find out.”“ During 7-on-7 drills, Benjamin caught a touchdown

Troy’s Leah Soutar fends off a Centerville defender for control of the ball Wednesday night at Troy Memorial Stadium.

Measuring stick Trojans lose tough 2-1 battle to Elks BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor Troy’s girls soccer program took some big steps in its history last season. Wednesday, the Trojans got a taste of where those steps will take them. Pitted against Centerville — a state semifinalist last season with a host of returning talent — Troy not only hung around, but actually drew first blood early in the TROY second half. The Elks, though, eventually wore the Trojans down and cashed in a pair of rapid-fire chances to limp away from Troy Memorial Stadium with a 2-1 victory in a hotlycontested matchup of two of the area’s best. “To play a team like that, that got as far as they did in the postseason last year and with the players they have coming back, that shows us how far we’ve come as a program,” Troy coach Mike Rasey said. “To be right there with one of the best teams in the Dayton area, I’m very proud

SEATTLE (AP) — The Cleveland Indians’ latest slide could be a costly one for manager Manny Acta, and he knows it. Zach McAllister pitched six effective innings, but Vinnie Pestano yielded a tiebreaking two-run double to Eric Thames in the eighth and Cleveland fell 3-1 at Seattle for its eighth consecutive loss. The Indians’ slide comes on the heels of an 11-game skid from July 27 to Aug. 7. Cleveland has lost 21 of its last 25 and is 10-29 since the All-Star break. The last time the Indians dropped 21 of 25 was Aug. 28 to Sept. 24, 2009, according to STATS LLC. “It’s never been done in the history of the game where 25 guys are released,” Acta said. “They should relax. If one guy is going to go, it’s going to be me, not them.” Seattle has won eight in a row for its longest winning streak since it won eight straight from June 23 to July 1, 2007. The Mariners have won 15 of their last 16 home games. Kyle Seager set up Thames’ big hit with a one-out drive to right-center off Pestano (3-1) that he stretched into a double. “The ball got there a little bit before and he put the tag down,” Seager said. “(I) felt like if I tried to alter the slide and get my left hand around there, that would be my best chance.” Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera argued the call by second base umpire Ed Hickox, and Acta came out to dispute it. The manager was eventually ejected for the second time this season. “From where I was, I felt he tagged him and the guy was out,”

Colon suspended 50 games for positive test Buckeyes look to answer questions Ohio State has a new coach, new approach, new players and a fresh start. But what does it all mean? See Page 16.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Make it two 50-game suspensions in exactly one week both starters for contending teams from the Bay Area, both for testosterone. Former Cy Young Award winner Bartolo Colon of the Oakland Athletics was suspended for 50 games Wednesday after a positive test, joining San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera on the suspended list for the rest of the regular

season. Major League Baseball made the announcement of Colon’s penalty a week after All-Star game MVP Cabrera received his 50-game suspension “I apologize to the fans, to my teammates and to the Oakland A’s,” Colon said in a statement released by the players’ association. “I accept responsibility for my actions and I will serve my suspension as required by the joint drug

program.” He will miss the final 40 games of the regular season and the first 10 games of the postseason if Oakland advances that far. Any remainder of the suspension would be served in a future season, if Colon signs another major league contract. “It’s a shock,” Oakland reliever Grant Balfour said. “He’s a guy that we’re definitely relying on right now. I guess you could say it’s bad timing

any time, but especially now.” Oakland, which hasn’t made the playoffs since 2006, began Wednesday a half-game out in the AL wild-card race. The A’s were preparing for an afternoon series finale against Minnesota when they got the news from clubhouse televisions. A closeddoor team meeting was called. “The Oakland Athletics are disappointed to learn of today’s suspension,” the team said in a statement.

Haden ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Haden was excused. The Browns denied interview requests for Haden, who was back on the field for the afternoon walkthrough. After that session, Shurmur said he and Haden had cleared the air. “Joe and I talked and everything’s fine,” Shurmur said. “It’s a dead issue.” Shurmur’s annoyance with Haden could be understandable given the rash of injuries that have plagued the Browns since camp opened last month. Benjamin recently missed time with an undisclosed injury, and 13 players, including rookie runback Trent AP PHOTO ning Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson makes Richardson, sat out a catch for a touchdown while being covered by Wednesday’s workout. Cleveland Browns defensive back Joe Haden during a Richardson recently preseason game Aug. 16 in Green Bay, Wis. underwent knee surgery.

On Monday, running back Chris Ogbonnaya sustained a leg injury when he got tangled at the end of a play. Shurmur said player safety is his primary concern. “It’s important that we practice smart,” he said. “You have to be able to practice at game speed, and you win and lose in practice. I think it’s important that guys understand that. I want all of our guys to make it to the horse race. Safety, everything I do I think about these players and this team. I told them that. All my thoughts revolve around our players and our team. I think it’s very important that we practice fast and we’re smart.” Haden’s early dismissal capped an eventful camp for both he and the

Browns. In the first few days, owner Randy Lerner announced he was selling the team to truck-stop magnate Jimmy Haslam III, who is buying the Browns for $1 billion. Richardson, the No. 3 overall pick in April’s draft, underwent microscopic surgery on his left knee, and has yet to play in an exhibition game. Starting outside linebacker Chris Gocong sustained a season-ending injury, and there has been continuous speculation about the future of former starting quarterback Colt McCoy, who lost his job to rookie Brandon Weeden. Those issues came on the heels of defensive tackle Phil Taylor tearing a muscle lifting chest weights (he’s expected to miss at least six games)

and linebacker Scott Fujita’s three-game suspension from his involvement in the New Orleans Saints’ bounty scandal. Haden, too, has been embroiled in controversy this summer. He’s facing a possible four-game suspension by the NFL for reportedly failing a drug test. Shurmur said the Browns have not heard from the league on Haden’s situation, and that he couldn’t comment on it even if they had. Haden’s on-field actions on Wednesday seemed out of character for the easygoing and popular 23-yearold, who was drafted by Cleveland with the seventh overall pick in 2010. Haden had six interceptions as a rookie but didn’t have any last season, when he was plagued by several drops.

Questions abound at OSU Reid: Vick will COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio State has a new coach, new approach, new players and a fresh start. But what does it all mean? There’s a lot going on in Buckeyeland, now under the guidance of former Bowling Green, Utah and Florida coach Urban Meyer. After a forgettable 2011 — which included NCAA sanctions, suspensions, departures and a dismal 6-7 record — fans are embracing a rejuvenated program that opens its season Sept. 1 at home against Miami (Ohio). Fifteen starters return from the team that weathered nothing but bad news under interim coach Luke Fickell. With the Buckeyes officially in looking-ahead mode instead of dealing with the trauma of Jim Tressel’s resignation and all those NCAA nightmares, there are many questions as Meyer establishes his own imprint in the program’s 123rd year. ___ 1) How are things different under Meyer? Despite what you may have heard there are no meters yet invented which can accurately measure intensity. So it’s hard to say, as have some over-caffeinated observers, that Meyer has run the toughest August camp ever at Ohio State, or that it’s substantially more “competitive” or hard-hitting than last year’s, the year before or when Paul Brown prowled the sidelines. Still, Meyer displays a brutally frank form of public tough love. He called it “a clown show” as the Buckeyes tried to grasp his new, fasttempo spread offense in the first week of spring drills. He has consistently called out the wide receivers for not working hard enough or not doing their jobs, and hasn’t hidden the fact that since day one he’s been searching for a hybrid runner/receiver around which to build. Just this week, Meyer spoke of the passing game. “The area where we’re much improved is throwing and catching. Much improved,” he said. Then he added, “We couldn’t have gone much the other way.” In terms of approach, this is light years from the senatorial doublespeak of Tressel, deposed in the wake of the memorabilia-for-cash scandal of 2011. Other than not suffering fools (or marginal effort) gladly, Meyer has instituted his version of speed dating called the spread offense. Every few seconds, the ball will be snapped; defenses had better be ready. This is beyond light years removed from the conservative “let’s play field position and rely on our defense” offense of Tressel, which to be fair resulted in his teams winning almost 8 of every 10 games for a decade at Ohio State. Meyer is demanding, intolerant of excuses and indifference, more than a little arrogant and assured that his way will work. It’ll be interesting to see how Meyer — who twice quit as Florida’s head coach, the second time to sit out of coaching for a year due to health concerns — handles a return to the pressure cooker

play in opener


Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde (34) runs for a touchdown Oct. 8, 2011 in Lincoln, Neb. Dan Herron, is gone. Jordan Hall, the heir apparent to Herron, is still recovering from a cut tendon in his foot. of coaching. It’ll also be a lab experiment whether Ohio State fans, quick to love any coach who wins on a regular basis, accept his blunt perspective. 2) Will the new offense flourish? Offensive coordinator Tom Herman makes it clear that Meyer is canny enough to not try to fit players into his offense; it works the other way, with the offense adapting to fit the talent at hand. That means that there will still be a lot of passing — perhaps more passes than Ohio State has ever thrown. And that means far more throws to backs out of the backfield and in the slot, to tight ends and to receivers in a multitude of sets. The personnel on hand, at the skill positions in particular, is nowhere close to what Meyer had in his six seasons at Florida, and probably not up to what he had at Utah. But it’s a fluid situation, with Carlos Hyde probably running the ball a lot in the first few games until Jordan Hall returns from a cut foot and the offense finds its mojo. It will likely take time before QB Braxton Miller finds a receiver with which he has an almost innate connection. It’s a qualified yes. The offense will flourish, but don’t judge it based on the opener. There will still be moments where it’s a clown show, but other times where it makes defenses look silly. Remember: Miller is still only a sophomore who had an upand-down first season, most of the receivers have never actually done much receiving in a game, and the running game is a work in progress. 3) How good will the defense be? It should be very, very good, depending on one rather large, problematic area. The linebacking crew has received tepid praise from the coaches, which is understandable considering it was

a weakness last year during that debacle of a season. There’s no question the front four will be sterling. John Simon, Johnathan Hankins, Garrett Goebel and (when he returns from microfracture surgery) Nathan Williams make up a first-class, attack-mode line. If they get to the opposing quarterback, everyone including those linebackers will look a lot better. The secondary appears to be deep and talented, with Bradley Roby and Travis Howard holding down the corners and Christian Bryant and C.J. Barnett stalwarts at safety. An interesting aspect to keep an eye on is how the defense works with the offense. The latter is designed to run through plays (and, by extension, series) quickly. The linemen say they’ve never been in better shape, but if the offense has a couple of quick possessions in a row, it can wear down a defense. 4) Who are some surprises who might have big seasons? Look for receivers Evan Spencer and Devin Smith — is it too soon to call them “Evan and Devin”? — to be at the heart of most long-distance plays from Miller. Corey Brown, one of two Corey Browns on the team but we’re talking about the WR here, also comes close to being the hybrid uberplayer that Meyer had in Gatorland. Freshman OL Taylor Decker is in a battle with converted TE Reid Fragel to start. He could be a mainstay for the next four years. Classmates Kyle Dodson and Jacoby Boren also figure to get their feet wet up front — and fast. And they certainly won’t be the only first-year player making an impact right away. Count on LBs Jamal Marcus, David Perkins, Josh Perry and Camren Williams to shore up a thin position.

Perhaps the best players in the incoming freshman class are all DLs: Tommy Schutt, Noah Spence and Adolphus Washington. Michael Thomas, an early enrollee to play spring ball, was the star of the spring game and could steal playing time from his older teammates. With a new coaching staff, don’t be surprised to see a lot of youngsters dotting the lineup and laying the groundwork for next season when the Buckeyes can go to a bowl. 5) So should I be thinking 12-0 or happy with just improvement over last season? It shouldn’t be too difficult to improve on last season’s record. The schedule is such that the Buckeyes will most likely be favored in at least eight of their first nine games, the lone exception being at Michigan State in the Big Ten opener. None of the non-conference opponents (Miami, UCF, Cal, UAB) presents a tremendous challenge, particularly when they’ve got 105,000 rooting against them at Ohio Stadium. But before betting the house payment on a 10-2 or better record, remember that the Buckeyes did lose seven games last season for the first time since 1897 and that they come into the 2012 season with a four-game losing skid. Meyer and the other new faces on his staff don’t entirely erase the fact that the 2011 team gave up 21 points a game, at times could not complete a simple pass and were outscored by almost 2-to-1 in the first quarter of games (9951). With a 4-0 start in the independent games at home, and improvement over last year’s 3-5 mark in the Big Ten, the Buckeyes shouldn’t have any problem getting eight wins. Anything beyond that would be a solid start to a new era, wouldn’t it?

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — With a swarm of surrounding reporters backup quarterback Nick Foles, Michael Vick saw an opening and took off. Injured ribs didn’t affect Vick’s escapability in the locker room. Still, the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback stopped to say he is “doing good, feeling better,” and there is no doubt he will be ready when the Philadelphia Eagles visit the Cleveland Browns in Week 1. Vick didn’t practice Wednesday after bruising his ribs during a win at New England on Monday, and Eagles coach Andy Reid said he probably won’t play the rest of the preseason. Foles, the rookie third-round pick, will start in his place Friday night at the Browns. “That was a pretty good shot he took,” Reid said of the hit that knocked Vick out of the game against the Patriots after just six plays. “It was in a soft spot, and a good shot he took.” Vick is just 4 for 7 for 11 yards and has been on the field for only 12 plays in the first two preseason games. If he doesn’t play again, he could be rusty for the season opener. “Would I like him to have some more reps? Would he like more reps? Yeah, I’m sure both of us would like him to have more reps, but you bank on his maturity and experience to get him through a

situation like this,” Reid said. “So, that’s what we’ll do.” Vick’s teammates aren’t worried about it, either. “I don’t think that’s a concern at all,” wide receiver Jeremy Maclin said. “We’ve been around him long enough, we had all those OTA reps.” Vick has missed three games because of rib injuries in each of the past two seasons and has started 16 games just once in his nine years in the NFL. His style of play has been called reckless, and critics wonder if he can ever hold up over a full season. “It’s not every day you get that type of athlete who can play quarterback,” Maclin said. “I don’t think it’s reckless. He just has a unique style. There’s other quarterbacks who can do that, but I don’t think anyone does it like Michael Vick.” Reid defended Vick’s intentions on the play he was injured. “He was trying to make somebody miss, and he wheeled backward about 15 yards,” Reid said. “He had an available receiver down the field, and he was trying to make a play. To tell him that he can’t make that throw, you’re not going to tell him that. You just want everyone to do their job so that doesn’t happen back there. It was when he spun around that he got caught with that.”

Spanier’s lawyers attack Freeh report PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Ousted Penn State President Graham Spanier and his lawyers attacked the university-backed report on the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal on Wednesday, calling it a “blundering and indefensible indictment” as they fired a pre-emptive strike while waiting to hear if he’ll be charged in the case. Lawyer Timothy Lewis called Louis Freeh, the former FBI director and federal judge behind the report, a “biased investigator” who piled speculation on top of innuendo to accuse Spanier in a cover-up of early abuse complaints. “The Freeh report, as it pertains to Dr. Spanier, is a myth. And that myth … ends today,” Lewis said at a downtown Philadelphia news conference. Spanier did not attend, but he told media outlets in stories published hours later that he never understood the early complaints about Sandusky, who this year was convicted of molesting 10 boys and awaits sentencing, to be sexual. “I’m very stunned by Freeh’s conclusion that I

don’t think he used the word ‘cover-up’; but he uses the word ‘concealed,’” Spanier told The New Yorker magazine. “Why on earth would anybody cover up for a known child predator? Adverse publicity? For heaven’s sake! Every day I had to make some decision that got adverse publicity.” The New Yorker interview was published online after ABC News began promoting its own interview with Spanier, set to air in parts on several of its networks Wednesday and Thursday. At the news conference, Lewis, also a former federal judge, complained that Freeh never interviewed key witnesses, ignored inconvenient facts and manipulated the truth. For instance, he said, the report assumes former graduate assistant Mike McQueary told coach Joe Paterno in 2001 that he saw something sexual in a locker room shower and that Paterno echoed that to athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz. Freeh likewise, he said, assumes that they in turn told Spanier the same thing.

Indians ■CONTINUED FROM 15 Acta said. “Ed was right. I watched the replay and the guy was safe.� John Jaso was intentionally walked, Jesus Montero struck out and Thames doubled to right. Stephen Pryor (3-0) got two outs to get the win,

and Tom Wilhelmsen threw a hitless ninth for his 19th save in 21 chances. Seattle won despite getting outhit 8-5. Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma allowed one run and six hits in 5 2-3 innings.

McAllister gave up one run and three hits, struck out four and walked three. “McAllister did a very good job,� Acta said. “I just feel these guys are playing too tense.� Michael Saunders hit his 14th homer in the first inning to give Seattle the

lead. Saunders has four homers in his last four games. “I didn’t want to walk him,� McAllister said. “It’s early in the game and I wanted him to try and beat me.� Cleveland tied it in the sixth. Shin-Soo Choo

walked with one out and moved up on Carlos Santana’s single. Both runners moved up on a double steal and Choo came home when Casey Kotchman reached on an infield single to third against Oliver Perez. Ezequiel Carrera’s

walk loaded the bases, and Perez struck out Jack Hannahan to end the inning. “Right now offensively, we had plenty of opportunities to take the lead, but it seems every player is just trying to do too much,� Acta said.

M-U edges Troy

■CONTINUED FROM 15 of the girls. “Centerville is going to be one of the top two or three teams we will see all year. Even though the polls aren’t out yet, I’m sure this was a matchup of two of the top five teams in the Dayton area right now.� Throughout the first half, it had the appearance of a league championship game, despite the fact that it was just a Greater Western Ohio Conference crossover matchup. Both teams created quality scoring opportunities despite being faced off against the stingiest of defenses — and neither one could cash in thanks to some stellar goaltending. Midway through the first half, Ashley Rector sent a cross in to Madison Burchfield, who fired off a point blank shot at the Centerville keeper — who proved to be up to the task, wrapping it up immediately. Soon after, defender Catelyn Schmiedebusch brought the ball up on a long run and crossed to Rector in the middle, but the keeper broke off her line early and intercepted it before it got to Rector. That turned into a long punt that Centerville’s Beth Smith headed to Jackie Etson for a breakaway, but Troy keeper Amanda Blakley wisely stepped up to cut off Etson’s angle, altering the shot the attacker could take. Etson tapped the shot just wide of the net, and Centerville watched its best chance to that point slip away. The Elks kept the pressure on, though, and minutes later Kendell Maloney got free for a shot in the middle — but Blakley was able to turn it away yet again, and the game remained scoreless at the half. And Troy — which fared well last postseason, also, winning a sectional championship and reaching the district final — stunned the Elks early in the second half as junior Morgan Brown lifted a high shot from 30 yards out that sailed over the keeper’s head and in for the first score of the game a mere 23 seconds into the second half. “With the team we have back, we felt like we could win tonight,� Rasey said. “We’re very balanced all over the field. We played well. We battled from start to finish.� But so did Centerville, and with 23:14 left the Elks finally found some room. Maloney sent a cross to the middle that the Troy defense deflected away from
