School adds seventh grade Survey

Junior high program returns to St. Patrick this year BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer

Photos offer WWII timeline

Results of a survey distributed by Troy Main Street indicate that the majority of downtown businesses would like to see the Strawberry Festival downtown again next year. The annual festival’s venue moved from the Great Miami River levee to downtown Troy this year due to the Adams Street Bridge construction. Troy Main Street sent out 204 surveys in early August and received 48 responses, including one received past the deadline. The eight-question survey, which provided the option for anonymity, culminated with the question, “What is your preference for the Strawberry Festival location?” Downtown received 33 votes, while the levee earned nine.

TROY hall of fame. Until now, that is. In 2013, the Troy High School Athletics Hall of Fame will induct its first class. A selection committee has been formed and now is taking nominations from the community to honor “outstanding student-athletes and individuals who

have made a positive impact on Troy High School’s athletic programs.” “I think within the school and community, there were a variety of other worthwhile projects that had merit that needed to take place and as other useful projects have been completed, this project has worked its way up the list,” said Troy Athletics Hall of Fame Committee President John

Terwilliger, a former coach and teacher within the Troy City Schools system. The hall of fame — with the full support of Troy administrators and the athletic department — will induct its first class in fall 2013. Those eligible for induction are players, coaches, administrators and community members. To be considered for induction into the hall of

It was the year of the acquittal of the Chicago Seven, when the Beatles disbanded, the shooting of four students at Kent State University, and the debut of the Ford Pinto and AMC Gremlin cars. The year was 1970 and it also was the last year Troy’s St. Patrick Catholic School offered a junior high program. Fast forward 42 years, St. Patrick Catholic School Principal Cyndi Cathcart has cleared the path for students to extend their religious studies and schooling in their hometown of Troy once again — one teen at a time. Wednesday marked the first day of school for all St. Patrick Catholic School students, but the day was a special one for the new class of seventh-grade students. “We’re moving forward,” Cathcart said Friday. “We’ve got a lot of support

School • Continued from A1 from the Troy community and not just the Catholic community, but as a whole, and I’m just so excited about this class. We have a great group of kids.” Cathcart said of last year’s 19 sixth-grade students, 14 returned to St. Patrick Catholic School. The number of students interested in continuing at St. Patrick was a delight for Cathcart because she said she wanted to keep the class size small in its first year. “Junior high is hard anyways. They are going to work as a team on a variety of projects and community service — I can’t wait to see what they come up with because it will be their choice, their passion to serve and grow their Catholic faith in service,” Cathcart said. It was a year-long process to get the junior high started, with Cathcart securing grants and participating with the University of Dayton’s education program. Cathcart selected Jenny Holzmer during an extensive interview process at the University of Dayton. She is enrolled in the prestigious LaLanne program as she earns a master’s degree in education and will stay with the students next year as well. “It was an exciting first day and I’m very happy with how everything went,” Holzmer said. “We’ll be doing a lot of hands-on activities. We’ve been talking a lot about how they are the

leaders of their school, too.” Holzmer said she has high expectations of her 14 students. “We’ll be working on lots of projects and doing teambuilding — they are very excited about this year,” Holzmer said. “I like having the small class size and being with my friends again,” said 13-yearold Kelsey Weber. “I also like being able to stay here in my own community instead of going somewhere else to school too.” “We are the ones kids look up to and I like learning

about God and Jesus in religion classes,” said 12-yearold Joe Melton. “I like how they explain it and taking time to start the day with prayer.” Melton shared his favorite book of the Bible, which is the Book of Job, the story of the man’s struggle through life, while he kept his faith throughout each hardship. “He had a really bad life but he still had faith and every time when I have a bad day at school, I think of Job,” Melton said. Cathcart said the stu-

dents’ faith and prayers of intention amaze her by their care and concern for each other and their community as a whole. “They are so mindful of what is going around them and to hear them pray for each other during prayers of intention just is so wonderful,” Cathcart said. “Seventh grade is a year of change and challenges. They are going through some pretty tough stuff with their bodies, their religion and this is a good year to sort some of that out before eighth-grade confirmation as they are forming

their spiritual identity.” Cathcart said the group of teens will build upon their community with their community service. “I’m so excited about all possibilities they come up with. When you have 14 minds thinking how they want to change the world you can’t help but enjoy it,” Cathcart said. “We are making this whole school a positive place. “They know they are going to be the faith leaders of their school and I want other kids to see that,” she said. One way seventh-grade student, Max Hamlin, 12, said he helps is to sit with the kindergarten students during weekly Mass. “We lead the rest of the school and sit with the kindergartners and help them out,” Hamlin said. Cathcart said she is still working on how to get the students involved in sports, including the Catholic Youth Organization in Dayton, as well as combining students from Holy Angels in Sidney and Piqua Catholic Schools. Cathcart also said the Holy Angels and Piqua Catholic junior high students would be joining together for many religious retreats and other activities. “I’d rather go here and be with the rest of my friends,” Melton said. “I’m from Troy so I want to stay in Troy.” And move forward in faith and build a foundation in their backyard – one teen at a time.

Of the levee supporters, two were from the same law firm. Raw data of the findings was given to Heather Dorsten, Troy Strawberry Festival director, and Patrick Titterington, Troy director of public service and safety, on Aug. 17. Dorsten said she will gather information from the surveys to present to the board of trustees, who will then make a decision, likely by mid-September. Should the festival entail street closings, city council would need to weigh in. “This year was absolutely wonderful, and we appreciate everyone’s help and support,” Dorsten

said. “We definitely appreciate Troy Main Street’s help in getting the surveys out.” Titterington commented that the survey results are consistent with the feedback he heard on the day of the festival. “I think the results of the survey weren’t surprising because we had heard informally from the downtown business community that they were very supportive of having it downtown,” Titterington said. According to survey results, slightly fewer than half of responding businesses were open — 21 open versus 25 closed. Two others did not respond.

Of those that were open, 15 said sales were higher than last year, nine said sales were lower and one reported comparable sales to years past. The remaining respondents, who did not provide an answer, were either not open this year or last year. The following question, asking how actual sales compared to expectations, parallelled responses to the prior question, with 14 reporting higher sales and six reporting lower sales. In terms of the parking situation, 19 found it difficult, 11 manageable, nine easy, seven did not need parking and three provided no response.

The following question asked about accessibility to one’s building during the festival, to which feedback was almost split evenly — 19 said difficult and 18 said not difficult, with the remaining either not needing access to the building or having no comment. An open-ended question asked for comment on the festival as a whole, while the following question encouraged discussion on future Strawberry Festivals. Manovich said she will continue sifting through the responses to get a more detailed picture of feedback.

HOW IT HAPPENED TROY — The need was great and the support was greater. St. Patrick Catholic School’s Principal Cyndi Cathcart said it took a year to investigate what it would take to begin a junior high program at the school. Cathcart visited a variety of schools and decided to base the new junior on the STEM model of science, technology, engineering and math. “This will be the start of 21st century schooling starting with the seventh grade,” Cathcart said. The Troy Foundation awarded the St. Patrick Catholic School’s seventhgrade program a $10,000 grant for an I-pad cart and accessories for the school’s mission. “The kids crave technol-

ogy and I wanted to give them what they would need and were excited to use,” Cathcart said. “I’m excited about using I-pads – we’ve never done it before,” said seventh-grade student Max Hamlin. “It will be cool to use the touch screen.” Cathcart said a grant from the Miami County Foundation helped with Ebooks to be loaded on the Ipads to replace the majority of traditional textbooks for the students. “We’re moving forward in technology,” Cathcart said. “We know it moves and changes so fast, yet we have to change with the times in education.” Cathcart herself was attending a six-hour seminar from the Apple Co.y to learn how to use the I-pads

to their fullest in the classroom. Cathcart said other funding for the seventh grade came from around the community, including parents, church members, grandparents and even outside of the Catholic Church community. Cathcart said one parishioner also donated Rosetta Stone for the students to work on foreign languages throughout the year. “People really believe in us here at St. Patrick’s and the response has been amazing,” Cathcart said. “I can’t thank anyone enough for their support — parents, grandparents, everybody, that is such a positive force and a huge boost.” For more information, visit

Survey of an expanded festival at both locations. Karin Manovich, executive director of Troy Main Street, said the majority of downtown businesses favor the downtown site. But some still preferred the levee location. “An interesting observation on this last question was that nearly all the levee supporters were service businesses — attorneys, insurance, other offices — with the exception of one retailer,” Manovich said. “The retailers and restaurants overwhelmingly favor the downtown.”

contributions to the community or professional organizations at the state, national or professional levels to promote athletics. “The first class will be larger than any of the following classes, because we have so much catching up to do,” Terwilliger said. “We could foresee the first class including eight to 10 members, with smaller classes to follow every year.” After nomination forms are submitted, Terwilliger said, the committee will review the nominations and have the final say on inductions. He said it’s important to get the community involved in the nomination process to help cover Troy’s rich athletic history. “Quite frankly, we know there are qualified nominees out there — especially prior to the 1950s, who not everyone is aware of,” Terwilliger said. “We want people to come forward with those nominations.” Nomination forms may be obtained at the Troy High School Athletic Office, in the Troy all-

sports program, at Troy Memorial Stadium during fall home sporting events and in the Troy High School commons area during home winter sporting events. Also, a website, www.trojanathleticshof. com, soon will be fully operational and feature the nomination form. Nomination of candidates for entry into the hall of fame will be considered for a period of five years. Nomination forms must be submitted by April 1 of each year to be considered. To be considered for induction into the inaugural class, nomination forms must be turned in by April 1, 2013. Each year, the new class of hall of fame inductees will be honored at the first home football game of the season, followed by an induction banquet the following day. Hall of fame inductees will be immortalized in a trophy case next to the Troy High School gymnasium. “Our goal is to do right by the people who have played and put a lot into it,” Terwilliger said. “We hope to do our due diligence in honoring them.”

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP San Francisco Chronicle on Apple Inc.: Zynga, Facebook and Groupon all may be on the stock market ropes, but there’s one Bay Area technology company that’s won all 12 rounds: Apple. The Cupertino personal computing giant won the title of “most valuable company of all time” on Aug. 20, when a market rally lifted the stock share to more than $662. That’s a market capitalization rate of around $623 billion. The previous record-holder, Microsoft, touched $616.3 billion during the Internet boom of 1999. No sooner had the threshold been breached than market watchers jumped in to try taking some of the shine off of Apple’s crown. Microsoft still has a higher valuation in inflation-adjusted dollars, they said (and it does, at a market cap of around $850 billion). Petrochina, the Chinese oil company, reached an even higher valuation on the Shanghai stock exchange — $1 trillion. (Also true, but that exchange isn’t open, and Petrochina’s prices on the exchanges in New York and Hong Kong are under $500 billion.) All of the naysayers’ caveats are true, but they don’t much matter. We say $623 billion is $623 billion — more than the GDP of Switzerland. And with a low price-earnings ratio and a new iPhone 5 rumored to come out this year, Apple’s stock might go higher yet. There’s plenty of time for the new champion to set another world record. The Miami Herald on new immigration policy: After years of crushing disappointment, young people born elsewhere but raised in this country without benefit of proper documentation have an opportunity to relieve the anxiety and desperation that comes with living with the perpetual fear of deportation. A change in immigration policy that went into effect recently offers them a two-year reprieve from summary expulsion. The decision will provide temporary work permits for undocumented immigrants who arrived in this country before the age of 16 if they have graduated from high school, served in the military or earned a G.E.D.; have no felony convictions; and have lived in the United States for at least five years. The initiative amounts to a measure of progress in their efforts to gain a legal foothold in this country. As such, it is a welcome and long-sought step forward, the first sign of rationality in what up to now has been an illogical and morally reprehensible process designed to punish individuals for the actions of their parents. The change comes after years of relentless prodding by immigration advocacy groups that would not let the nation’s chief executive evade all responsibility for inaction on immigration reform. Congress is the principal culprit in the paralysis over comprehensive reform, but President Barack Obama had to be convinced — or pressured — to make a decision that all along was well within his purview. Despite claims to the contrary by critics, the president did not unilaterally enact the Dream Act with a stroke of his pen. In fact, the change in policy does not even amount to an executive order, and it stops far short of providing a path to citizenship for unauthorized immigrants brought to this country as minors by their parents. It doesn’t offer the coveted “green card” or federal financial aid for education, but rather provides an avenue of redress for people who have been treated unfairly.

THEY SAID IT “It was definitely hard — it’s really far from home. Plus you don’t have the structure of college. At college, I would have been around people my own age and going through the same things — here, everyone is not the same age.

But miraculously, she’s done very well. She’s still got a long way to go, but I think she’s doing better than anyone expected. She’s a fighter. She’s very bull-headed — she’s definitely got that gene.” — Matt Stump, father of Troy High School graduate Rachel Stump, who was struck by a car while walking near the campus of The Ohio State University. “One thing that never changes around here is expectations — and we like it that way. We want the kids to set a high bar for themselves.” — New Troy football coach Scot Brewer

Cthulhu: Why vote for the lesser of two evils? “Vote for the lesser of the two evils.” That’s how the popular saying goes when it comes to elections, and it couldn’t be more poignant this year. Come November, Americans will be forced to choose between Democratic incumbent Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney. So, in honor of H.P. Lovecraft — one of the world’s most influential horror authors whose birthday was earlier this week — his creation and all of the T-shirts, bumper stickers and Internet memes the idea has already spawned, I propose an alternative to the two bogus choices we’ve been given. Vote for Cthulhu for President. After all, why settle for the lesser evil — when you can have the most evil thing in all of existence. Well, if Cthulhu actually existed, I suppose. Fictional character or no, it’s still better than either Obama or Romney. Obama, who probably still is the lesser of the two real-world evils, is just not an acceptable choice anymore. He was elected on promises of bridging the enormous gap between our two equally-idiotic parties, putting an end to Bush’s expensive and pointless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, increasing the transparency of the inner workings of the

Our soldiers are still in Iraq and Afghanistan, lobbyists still buy whatever laws they want to buy, and transparency? The government is still just as shadowy and underhanded as it’s ever been. And then there’s Romney, who’d be even worse. The Republicans’ failing point for years has been social issues, and this Josh Brown time around is worse than most. Sunday Columnist Romney and his slimebag running mate Paul Ryan’s opposition to gay government and getting the money of marriage and women’s rights make detrimental-to-us-all lobbyists out of them completely and utterly unelecthe legislative process. table.

The fact that

he’s still running on promises of repealing it makes him a total moron. Forget about lesser evils. Go with THE evil. I say vote for Cthulhu instead. One of the Great Old Ones in Lovecraft’s tales, Cthulhu is a cosmic being of immense power and unimaginable evil. He sleeps under the ocean in the sunken city of R’lyeh somewhere underneath the South Pacific ocean, and it is said that his dreams are the root of all of the evil deeds, anxieties and every other negative emotion that the entire human race does and experiences. To even look upon him — a giant mixture of octopus, dragon and humanoid that makes even Godzilla look like a baby lizard — is to go insane, as the human mind is incapable of registering that a being like him can exist. And when he awakens, he will be hungry — and will devour the entire world. His only campaign promise? To eat the people that voted for him last. If nothing else, it’s a promise that would actually be kept. TDN Sports Editor Josh Brown appears Sundays. He does not advocate the worship of demons, devils etc. But, given the alternatives, he does advocate voting for one.

Ohio couple restoring forgotten gravestones PORT JEFFERSON (AP) — It all started as a journey to find the ancestors of her husband. But the journey has taken Rhonda and Rich Wade, of Port Jefferson, on a path they never expected. “Rhonda is into genealogy,” said Rich. “We could find information on my grandfather but we couldn’t find his dad. I had heard about a cemetery on North Lane Street in Port Jefferson and I said, ‘Let’s go look there.’” That was five years ago, and what they found in the Pioneer Cemetery both shocked and dismayed them. “In 1982 the trustees got tired of mowing around the tombstones. So they dumped them all onto one gravesite,” said Rhonda. “This included the tombstone of Samuel Rice, one of the founders of Port Jefferson.” The site where all the gravestones were dumped was overgrown with poison ivy. Through the passage of time, the gravestones had sunk into the ground, covered by the poison ivy and other materials. “We removed the poison ivy,” Rhonda said. “It has taken five years for us to dig up all the tombstones. We kept digging until we could find no more stones.” “I was down in the knee-deep hole, looking for the gravestones,” Rich said. “We finally decided we had gone as deep as we could.” The gravestones were all laid out in the grass, said the couple. Now, thanks to Shane Roe, of Roe Transportation, a secure area has been created for this piece of Port Jefferson history. He prepared a soft, level pad for the gravestones to be placed on while the couple begin a restoration process on each one. “We know we’ll never be able to

But the journey has taken Rhonda and Rich Wade, of Port Jefferson, on a path they never expected. put the gravestones back where the bodies are buried,” Rhonda said. “So we wanted to do something to protect them from further damage.” Roe laid a pad of stones by the trees in the cemetery. There, each tombstone has been placed. Some are undamaged. Others are broken into pieces. And the couple know that some of the pieces may never be found. “On Memorial Day, the area Boy Scouts helped pick up the stones and put on the pad,” Rhonda said. “They started helping us put together the puzzle pieces of each gravestone.” Approximately 18 to 20 Scouts

helped that day. “Rhonda had contacted me to talk about doing this as an Eagle Scout project,” said Steve Baker, advancement chairman for Shelby County Boy Scouts. He coordinates Eagle Scout projects in the county. “Because she had done a lot of the work, we decided not do to it as an Eagle Scout project, but decided it would be a great district project for the boys to help with.” Baker said Rhonda talked to the Scouts about how the cemetery had been neglected and the history tied to the cemetery. “The boys went into the woods and found some more of the

stones,” Baker said. “They had a good sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.” The Scouts also learned how to make foil images of the headstones. The couple have found gravestones from 1830 in those uncovered from the mass grave of tombstones. “We have found stones that are not in the internment records for the cemetery,” said Rhonda. “We think we’ve found one of a Civil War veteran, Silas Kemp.” The couple are now in the process of restoring the gravestones to how they looked the day they were placed in the cemetery.

Rhonda recently attended a workshop in Wapakoneta about restoring tombstones. She learned how to safely remove the years and years of dirt on the tombstones. And now she and Rich spend their evenings at the cemetery with a generator humming in the background as they use a drill with a plastic brush attached to clean the gravestones. “We have matched up the pieces of the tombstones as much as we can,” said Rhonda. “We’ve put them together as families. Now it’s time to clean them up. “We found the gravestone of a 7-year-old girl. Her father had written her a poem on it,” she said. One gravestone has a lamb atop it. On the smaller side, the cleaning process has brought out the words Alfbata J. dau. of J. & E. Nettleship. died Nov. 21, 1867 Aged 10 m. 28 D. As Rich cleans the gravestone he and Rhonda notice something unexpected, on the other side of the gravestone, the words: infant son of J. & E. Nettleship. Died Feb. 22, 1861. The actual year of death has been worn away with time and the “1” is a guess on their part. On the long side of the gravestone the words of grieving parents talk about their children’s final resting place. “We’ve done as much as we can,” said Rhonda. “We’ll continue to come here and clean the gravestones. But we are looking for help to clean them up.” As the still of the night comes out, the reflections of two people who have no one buried in Pioneer Cemetery are bent over the gravestones trying to restore the history of the founders of the small village of Port Jefferson.

opponent Mitt Romney echoed those sentiments, an calling Armstrong American hero whose passion for space, science and discovery will inspire him for the rest of his life. “With courage unmeasured and unbounded love for his country, he walked where man had never walked before. The moon will miss its first son of earth,” Romney said. NASA chief Charles Bolden recalled Armstrong’s grace and humility. “As long as there are history books, Neil Armstrong will be included in them, remembered for taking humankind’s first small step on a world beyond our own,” Bolden said in a statement. Armstrong’s modesty and self-effacing manner never faded. When he appeared in Dayton in 2003 to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of powered flight, he bounded onto a stage before 10,000 people packed into a baseball stadium. But he spoke for only a few seconds, did not mention the moon, and quickly ducked out of the spotlight.

He later joined John Glenn, by then a senator, to lay wreaths on the graves of Wilbur and Orville Wright. Glenn introduced Armstrong and noted it was 34 years to the day that Armstrong had walked on the moon. “Thank you, John. Thirty-four years?” Armstrong quipped, as if he hadn’t given it a thought. At another joint appearance, the two embraced and Glenn commented: “To this day, he’s the one person on Earth, I’m truly, truly envious of.” Armstrong’s moonwalk capped a series of accomplishments that included piloting the X-15 rocket plane and making the first space docking during the Gemini 8 mission, which included a successful emergency splashdown. In the years afterward, Armstrong retreated to the quiet of the classroom and his southwest Ohio farm. Aldrin said in his book “Men from Earth” that Armstrong was one of the quietest, most private men he had ever met. In the Australian interview, Armstrong acknowledged that “now and then I

By the Associated Press Was the walk on the moon one small step for man, or a man? Neil Armstrong’s first words from the moon were heard all over Earth, and Earth heard this:

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” But Armstrong said immediately after the 1969 landing that he had been misquoted. He said he actually said, “That’s one small step for ‘a’ man.” It’s just that people just didn’t hear it.

Elliott said. “The fact that we were able to see it and be a part of it means that we are in our own way witnesses to history,” he said. The 1969 landing met an audacious deadline that President Kennedy had set in May 1961, shortly after Alan Shepard became the first American in space with a 15-minute suborbital flight. (Soviet cosmonaut Yuri A. Gagarin had orbited the Earth and beaten the U.S. into space the previous month.) “I believe this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before the decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to Earth,” Kennedy had said. “No single space project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important to the longrange exploration of space; and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish.” The end-of-decade goal was met with more than five months to spare. “Houston: Tranquility Base here,” Armstrong radioed after the spacecraft settled onto the moon.

miss the excitement about being in the cockpit of an airplane and doing new things.” At the time of the flight’s 40th anniversary, Armstrong again was lowkey, telling a gathering that the space race was “the ultimate peaceful competition: USA versus U.S.S.R. It did allow both sides to take the high road with the objectives of science and learning and exploration.” Glenn, who went through jungle training in Panama with Armstrong as part of the astronaut program, described him as brilliant” “exceptionally with technical matters but “rather retiring, doesn’t like to be thrust into the limelight much.” Derek Elliott, curator of the Smithsonian Institution’s U.S. Air and Space Museum from 1982 to 1992, said the moonwalk probably marked the high point of space exploration. The manned lunar landing was a boon to the prestige of the United States, which had been locked in a space race with the former Soviet Union, and re-established U.S. pre-eminence in science and technology,

The astronaut acknowledged in a rare interview in 1999 that he didn’t hear himself say it either when he listened to the transmission from the July 20, 1969, moon landing. “The ‘a’ was intended,” Armstrong said. “I thought I said it. I can’t hear it when I listen on the radio reception here on Earth, so I’ll be happy if you just put it in parentheses.” Although no in the world heard the “‘a,” some research backs Armstrong. In 2006, a computer analysis found evidence that Armstrong said what he said he said. Peter Shann Ford, an Australian computer programmer, ran a software

analysis looking at sound waves and found a wave that would have been the missing “a.” It lasted 35 milliseconds, much too quick to be heard. The Smithsonian’s space curator, Roger Launius, looked at the evidence and found it convincing. NASA has also stood by its moon man. “If Neil Armstrong says there was an ‘a,’ then as far as we’re concerned, there was an ‘a,’” NASA spokesman Michael Cabbage said shortly before the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. Armstrong, who died Saturday at age 82, maintained until the end that there was a lost word in his famous words from the moon. 2311933

Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin spent nearly three hours walking on the lunar surface, collecting samples, conducting experiments and taking photographs. “The sights were simply magnificent, beyond any visual experience that I had ever been exposed to,” Armstrong once said. The moonwalk marked America’s victory in the Cold War space race that began Oct. 4, 1957, with the launch of the Soviet Union’s Sputnik 1, a 184pound satellite that sent shock waves around the world. Although he had been a Navy fighter pilot, a test pilot for NASA’s forerunner and an astronaut, Armstrong never allowed himself to be caught up in the celebrity and glamour of the space program. “I am, and ever will be, a white socks, pocket protector, nerdy engineer,” he said in 2000 in one of his rare public appearances. “And I take a substantial amount of pride in the accomplishments of my profession.” A man who kept away

from cameras, Armstrong went public in 2010 with concerns about his President Barack Obama’s space policy that shifted attention away from a return to the moon and emphasized private companies developing spaceships. He testified before Congress and in an email to The Associated Press, Armstrong said he had “substantial reservations,” and along with more than two dozen Apollo-era veterans, he signed a letter calling the plan a “misguided proposal that forces NASA out of human space operations for the foreseeable future.” Armstrong was among the greatest of American heroes, Obama said in a statement. “When he and his fellow crew members lifted off aboard Apollo 11 in 1969, they carried with them the aspirations of an entire nation. They set out to show the world that the American spirit can see beyond what seems unimaginable that with enough drive and ingenuity, anything is possible,” Obama said. Obama’s Republican

In good condition



Troy’s Ashley Rector moves the ball down the field during a game against Tippecanoe on Saturday night at Troy Memorial Stadium in Troy. The Trojans topped the Red Devils to move to 2-0 on the season. Rector had an assist in the second half.


TROY — The Troy girls soccer team’s conditioning program is a big reason for its success on the field. Because the Trojans — who scored three goals in the final 10 minutes in their win over Lima Shawnee last weekend — love putting it on teams late. Troy did it again on Saturday, taking control against Tippecanoe early in the second half, then adding some insurance goals late to pull off a 4-0 win over the Red Devils at Troy Memorial Stadium.

“Our strength and conditioning program really helped prepare us for the season,” Troy coach Mike Rasey said. Marisa Mowery gave Troy a 10 lead going into half, scoring on a Leah Soutar throw in with six minutes remaining. After a Madison Burchfield goal — off a cross by Ashley Rector — to open the second, Troy broke the game open thanks to the combination of Kina Sekito and Burchfield. With six minutes remaining,

Trojans outlast Devils, win 4-0 Staff Reports



Covington’s Lane White runs down the home stretch at the 42nd annual Bob Schul Invitational in West Milton on Saturday. White and the Buccs placed third in the Division III race.

Regional preview? Buccs stack up well against top-notch competition BY COLIN FOSTER Associate Sports Editor Spectators weren’t standing atop the Troy levee cheering loudly as packs of runners from opposing schools breezed by. And it wasn’t late-October.

WEST MILTON But Saturday’s Bob Schul Invitational — the season-opener for many area schools — may have been a preview of what could potentially shape up to a very interesting Division III boys regional race come October.

BELLBROOK — The Troy Trojans volleyball team started the season off at 2-0 with wins over Tecumseh and Bellbrook Saturday. Troy beat Tecumseh in its opener 25-21, 25-27, 25-18, then followed with a 26-24, 25-12 win over host Bellbrook in Game 2. “We did some good things in each of the games,” Troy coach Michelle Owen said. “We let both teams creep back in when we had leads in both games, though. We were up by eight against Bellbrook in our first set, we just had some errors that allowed them to get back in the game. But we found a way to win these

MIAMI COUNTY games. Our girls really rallied to get a few ugly wins. “We’re 2-0 now. At the end of the day, that was the goal we had.” Mackenzie Rice ended the day with 54 assists and eight kills, Emily Moser had 14 kills and two digs, Lauren Freed had 11 digs, three assists and two kills, Jenna Selby mounted up 14 kills, two blocks and added six kills in the second game. Jillian Ross ended the day with nine kills and three blocks, while Jennifer Monnier had 11 kills and one block, Abby Brinkman had 14 digs and Cassie Rice had 30 digs and two kills. • Vikings Collect More Hardware COLDWATER — Seven sectional champions, four district champions, two regional champs and two state champs.

BROOKVILLE — The Troy boys cross country team was up for the task on Saturday at the Brookville Invitational. The Tippecanoe boys team also was eager to get the season going. Branden Nosker (second place, 16:24) and freshman Stephen Jones (ninth place, 17:04) led the charge as the Trojans finished second (49 points) behind Lakota East (46) in their opening race of the season.

■ High School Football

Time to regroup Trojans must bounce back from loss BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor It was the most thrilling home opener Troy Memorial Stadium had seen since 2004, when quarterback A.J. Bush hooked up with Shane Carter in the game’s final minute to lead the Troy football team to a 19-15 comeback win over Dublin Coffman.

TROY This time, however, the shoe was on the other foot as Chaminade Julienne connected on a touchdown pass in the game’s final minutes to send the Trojans down in defeat, 2114. It’s the first time Troy has lost a season opener since 2009, a 10-0 defeat of Chaminade Julienne. Heartbreaking as it was, however, it was just one game — and a nonconference game, to boot — in a 10-game season. Which is why Troy coach Scot Brewer and the Trojans must rebound going into next week’s contest against Springfield Shawnee. First, however, some final notes from the Trojans 21-14 loss to Chaminade Julienne: • MOST VALUABLE PLAYER: Given the way the entire unit held a highpowered CJ offense in check most of the night — it had to be a defensive seleciton. Senior outside linebacker Ian Nadolny was all over the field making plays all night long. His fumble recovery at the Eagle 25 helped set up Troy’s first touchdown of the night. He also had a key reception on fourth down to keep Troy’s first scoring drive alive. • UNSUNG HERO OF THE GAME: Fred Whitson deserves an award for th way he played last night — if for no other reason than he was getting hit by 6-foot-4, 245-pound CJ middle linebacker Darrien Howard all night long. Whitson carried the ball 22 times Friday night — and nearly every one of those carries ended with Howard, who will play at West Viriginia


Troy defense lineman Seth Overla (left) fights through a block Friday. University next year, coming up to lay the lumber to Whitson. Despite all of that, however, Whitson finished with 76 yards on his 22 carries. Also, Whitson’s 50yard kickoff return to open the second half set up the Trojans second touchdown of the night. • PLAY OF THE GAME: Unfortunately for the Trojans, there’s no overlooking the 49-yard touchdown pass from Jacob Harrison to Antwan Persons with 1:36 left to play in the game and the Eagles facing fourth-and19. That touchdown provided the winning margin for the Eagles. It does bear mentioning, however, that Troy had its

chances to ice the game before then and the game was not lost on a single play. Twice Troy had the ball in CJ territory and appeared to be driving for scores that would have likely put the game out of reach — but turned the ball over both times, once on a fumble and once on an interception. • WHAT WE LEARNED: In time, Troy will be a team to be reckoned with. The Trojans already have a stellar defense — CJ will be one of the better offenses the Trojans face this season — and, in time, the offense will come around. Once the offense gains traction, the Trojans will win their fair share of games this year.

Up against a team favored to be one of the best Division IV teams in Ohio, the Trojans showed no quit. If they can maintain that attitude, it should serve them well through the rest of the season. • WHAT HAPPENS NOW: Troy had exactly zero time for a pity party after the gut-wrenching loss. This week, the Trojans travel to Springfield Shawnee, the Division III state runner-up a year ago. If the Trojans dial down the intensity they showed against CJ even one notch, it could be a long night. Practice starts Monday — Troy has to get back after it and put last Friday’s loss behind it.

■ Cycling

Armstrong at peace after scandal ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — Lance Armstrong was feeling just fine even after being beaten by a lanky teenager in a grueling 36-mile mountain bike race. Better than fine, even. He’s more at ease now than he has been in a decade. In his first interview since the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency disciplined Armstrong with a lifetime ban from professional cycling and vacated his seven Tour de France titles, he said, “Nobody needs to cry for me. I’m going to be great.” Armstrong couldn’t catch Keegan Swirbul at the Power of Four bike race Saturday, finishing nearly five minutes behind the hard-charging kid. “It’s cool to get your butt kicked by a 16-year-old when you know he has a bright future,” Armstrong said, smiling. For a few hours, Armstrong was back in his element on a bike and in a race. No controversies weighing him down, either. The escape into the mountains around Aspen was almost refreshing. He took the time to enjoy a bright, blue day and soak in the scenery. As for what lies ahead, Armstrong wasn’t thinking that far only toward lunch. Armstrong chatted for a few minutes before saying, “OK,

I’m going to go eat a cheeseburger.” Before leaving, though, he posed for pictures with the throng of fans that gathered at the base of a ski lift to watch the racers finish. Asked if there was anything he would to say to his fans, the ones who’ve supported him through the controversy, he said: “I think people understand that we’ve got a lot of stuff to do going forward. That’s what I’m focused on and I think people are supportive of that. It’s great to be out here.” Decked out in black and gold and sporting a Livestrong emblem on his jersey, Armstrong tinkered with his bike and gave a kiss to girlfriend Anna Hansen before pedaling off. Hansen was waiting at the finish, too. So were plenty of other members of the Armstrong entourage. His busy weekend was supposed to include a trail marathon Sunday. But he told The Associated Press two hours later he was going to skip the race. This competition simply took that much out of him. With good reason, given all the climbing the cyclists had to do. And while Armstrong may be banned from cycling, it certainly hasn’t diminished his passion for compe-

tition. Only now, these weekend races may have to suffice. “It’s not so much about racing anymore for me,” Armstrong said. “For me, it’s more about staying fit and coming out here and enjoying one of the most beautiful parts of the world, on a beautiful day, on a very hard course. Some may say you’re a little sick to spend your free time doing stuff like this. I had a good time.” So did Swirbul beating his idol was the highlight of his burgeoning career. Or so he thought. Then came this: Armstrong saying Swirbul was a rider to keep an eye on down the road. Swirbul beamed as he stood next to Armstrong. Swirbul hardly had the heart to tell Armstrong that he won with only one gear the rest going out early in the race. “I’m so psyched right now,” said Swirbul, who turns 17 on Sept. 2. “I wanted to win this race so bad.” How come? “To beat the 7-time Tour champ,” he said, grinning. To riders such as Swirbul, Armstrong will always be champion of those Tour de France titles, no matter what rulings are made. “It’s just a bunch of bureaucrats causing trouble,” said Max Taam, who trains with Armstrong and finished third Saturday. “I

think he’s just happy to move on and be out on his bike.” Armstrong, who retired a year ago and turns 41 next month, said Thursday he would no longer challenge USADA and declined to exercise his last option by entering arbitration. He denied again that he took banned substances in his career, calling USADA’s investigation a “witch hunt” without any physical evidence. USADA said its evidence came from more than a dozen witnesses “who agreed to testify and provide evidence about their firsthand experience and/or knowledge of the doping activity of those involved in the USPS conspiracy,” a reference to Armstrong’s former U.S. Postal Service cycling team. The unidentified witnesses said they knew or had been told by Armstrong himself that he had “used EPO, blood transfusions, testosterone and cortisone” from before 1998 through 2005, and that he had previously used EPO, testosterone and Human Growth Hormone through 1996, USADA said. Armstrong also allegedly handed out doping products and encouraged banned methods and used “blood manipulation including EPO or blood transfusions” during his 2009 comeback race on the Tour de France.

Volleyball ■ CONTINUED FROM A8 Vikings — but it wasn’t close enough, as East managed to pull off a three set victory over reigning Divison IV state champion St. Henry to win the tournament. “There aren’t too many tournaments in the state that can boast competition like this,” Miami East coach John Cash said. “Beating a school like St. Henry is a big deal. St. Henry is always good. There is so much tradition behind their program. It’s one of Ohio’s best.”

The Vikings went 3-0 on the day, defeating New Knoxville in two sets, 25-19, 25-16 and beating the Shelby County League favorite Ft. Loramie in two, 25-20, 25-15. “First of all, that was one of the strongest passing efforts we have had,” Cash said. “Allison Morrett and Allie Millhouse were very key in allowing our offense to do what it was able to do.” And that offense did a lot. Abby Cash had 39 assists, 19 kills, two aces and

two blocks, Sam Cash had 32 assists, 22 kills and a block, Leah Dunivan chipped in 10 kills, six aces and eight blocks. Ashley Current ended with two assists, five kills and one block, Angie Mack had 18 kills, two aces and one block, Trina Current finished with six kills and two block and Millhouse added a kill and three aces. • Eagles Top Bethel TROY — Troy Christian is a team composed of mostly underclassman since

Morgan Potts went down with an injury. That lack of experience, however, didn’t hold it back on Saturday. Troy Christian took down Bethel in five sets. After losing the first set 25-18, the Eagles bounced back with a 25-21 win in the second game, then a 25-17 decision in the next. Bethel took the fourth set 25-18, but Maryn Klosterman delivered the game-winning slap hit as the Eagles escaped with a 15-13 victory in the final set.

Kristen Wenger had 45 digs in the win. “Bethel looks strong,” Troy Christian coach Amy Fletcher said. “They have some good players. They have a real strong right wide side hitter. She had a terrific game. “It was a tight one. We were going back and forth all the way through. Maryn went to the net and was able to get the winning slap.” • Bradford places 5th BRADFORD — Bradford dropped its first two games

on Saturday at the Darke County Volleyball Challenge, but rebounded to defeat Ansonia in the fifthplace game. The Railroaders (1-2) lost to Franklin-Monroe by a count of 25-19, 25-15 to open the day. Following that loss, Bradford was taken down by Tri-Village 25-19, 25-21. The Roaders beat Ansonia in three sets 25-19, 20-25, 2624. Tri-Village won the championship, beating Arcanum 25-17, 25-17.

As soon as we got that second goal (in the second half), the tide turned in our favor. It was only a matter of time before we scored again. I felt things really opened up for us.” Mackenzie Schulz had six saves in goal. The Trojans (2-1) are back in action at home Tuesday versus Springfield. • Boys Brookville 2, Bethel 1 BRANDT — Brookville slipped past Bethel by a score of 2-1 on Saturday.

Garcia leads Barclays by 2 FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) — The greens were so fast that Sergio Garcia didn’t know when the ball was going to stop. He was happy to see the day end with a 2-under 69, giving him a two-shot lead over Nick Watney going into the final round of The Barclays. Garcia fell out of the lead with a three-putt bogey on the third hole, but he didn’t have another one the rest of the round on a Bethpage Black course that lived up to is tough reputation Saturday because of greens that reminded players of another course on Long Island. Shinnecock Hills came up more than once. That’s when the USGA lost control of the greens in the final round of the 2004 U.S. Open, and even had to water one green in the middle of the round. Bethpage wasn’t that bad, but it was close. Watney, who made five putts over 15 feet, three-

putted the final hole when his putt went racing 10 feet by the cup. He had to settle for a 71, giving him another round in the final group with Garcia. Tiger Woods, who started the third round three shots out of the lead, three-putted for bogey three times on the front nine alone. He had another three-putt on the 14th hole, this one from 15 feet, and had a 72 that put him six shots behind. Garcia went four years without winning on the PGA Tour and now has a chance to make it two in a row. He was at 10-under 203, and only four players were within four shots of the lead. • LPGA COQUITLAM, British Columbia — Lydia Ko took a one-stroke lead in the Canadian Women’s Open in her bid to become the youngest winner in LPGA Tour history, shooting an evenpar 72.

■ CONTINUED FROM A8 out to be a good measuring stick as it faced off against schools which will be, and have been for a while, its primary competition during the postseason in Versailles, Minster, West Liberty-Salem and Russia. Though it was by the slimmest margin possible, the Buccs (126 points) managed to hold off Russia (127) and West Liberty-Salem (129) for third place. Minster won with 56 points, while reigning Division III state champ Sam Prakel — who won the race handily (15:40.7) — led Versailles to a second-place finish (89). “It really is a good measuring stick for us,” Covington coach Josh Long said. “The teams here like West-Liberty, Minster, Versailles and Russia are going to be teams we compete with down the road (at regionals). There could be some other teams in the mix, as well. I was really happy with the third-place finish. I told the kids that this may be the highest finish at the Bob Schul in 10 years. That says a lot about the competition level here.” “The Division III races here definitely supply the Schul with state level competition,” Milton-Union coach Michael Meredith said. “It was one of the biggest years we’ve had in terms of numbers. Between the high school and junior high races, we almost had 50 schools and 1,500 runners.” Lane White was Covington’s top finisher in ninth place (17:25.1), Dustin Fickert placed 16th (17:39), Alex Schilling took 23rd (18:09), sophomore Nate Dunn was 36th (18:30.9) and Matt Carder finished 42nd (18:39.2). ”Our top five ran extremely well,” Long said. “There were a lot of kids who are first-time runners that came out and ran good times. I was very pleased with how all 19 of our boys ran today. I couldn’t be happier with the results. We are really ahead of where I thought we would be to start the season, and that is because these boys have worked extremely hard.” Lehman’s Joe Fuller finished third overall (16:26) behind Prakel and Tri-Village’s Clayton Murphy (15:54.8). Fuller helped lead the Cavaliers to a 10th-place finish (346 points). Also for the Cavs, Nick Elsner got 39th (18:33.1), Louis Gaier placed 97th overall (19:58.7), Gabe Berning finished 132nd (20:45.3) and Erik Jackson rounded out the scoring, finishing 149th (21:19.1). Troy Christian finished 11th as a team (353 points). Leading the Eagles were Craig Helman (58th, 19:02.8) and Mark Dillahunt (59th, 19:03). Blake Klingler got 72nd (19:20.2), Chris Wharton finished 106th (20:03.6) and Eric Cooper placed 107th (20:04.4). “Both Mark and Craig are seniors,” Troy Christian coach Jeff McDaniel said. “Craig ran a new personal best today.

He’s going to have a good year. “We preach pack running here. We just got spread out today and our guys fell off the pace. Connor had it and nobody stayed with it.” Oakwood won the meet (46 points), Butler — which had the top two individuals in the race — finished second (61). • Girls The Division III girls race was littered with state experience from top to bottom.

Phillips, Reds get win

Indians stop 9-game skid, beat Yankees

CINCINNATI (AP) — Brandon Phillips’ day started with a thrill. Then it got better. Phillips caught the ceremonial first pitch thrown by Hall of Fame shortstop Barry Larkin, then collected three hits to lead the Cincinnati Reds to an 8-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday. “Catching my favorite player’s first pitch was an honor,” Phillips said about Larkin, who had his No. 11 retired during a pregame ceremony. Phillips then did a pretty good imitation of the 1995 NL MVP, hitting his first home run in August as the Reds strengthened their hold on the top spot in the NL Central. Mike Leake pitched effectively into the seventh inning and Jay Bruce added a two-run homer for Cincinnati, which regained a seven-game lead over second-place St. Louis. Ryan Ludwick also had three hits. The Cardinals rallied to win the series opener 8-5 on Friday night for their fourth consecutive victory. “They’re still hungry,” Phillips said. “They can hit. You look up at the scoreboard and everybody’s hitting .300. I don’t know who’s making outs for them.” Leake (6-8) allowed at least one hit in every inning except one, but kept the Cardinals mostly at bay. Leake, who also had two hits, lasted 6 2-3 innings, allowing 10 hits and two runs. “They were aggressive, a little more than normal,” said Leake, adding that he didn’t feel like he gave up 10 hits. “That shocked me. They hit a lot of ground balls. Some found holes.” Leake was never in serious trouble, manager Dusty Baker said. “He had that at ‘em ball going,” Baker said. “That’s what happens when you throw strikes. That was the start he needed and we needed. We’re trying to get him back to .500. He was masterful. We got (the Cardinals) back to where they were when they started from when they came in.” Cincinnati grabbed control with three runs in the sixth inning. Phillips led off with a double down the right-field line and advanced on Ludwick’s single to right. Phillips scored when Todd Frazier beat out a potential double-play grounder, and Bruce fol-

The Reds added four more in the seventh after Brandon Dickson retired the first two batters of the inning. St. Louis manager Mike Matheny was limited after using five relievers on Friday. “Dickson couldn’t get that putaway pitch,” Matheny said. “It was tough leaving him out there that long, but there were a couple guys I had to stay away from.” Phillips drove a fullcount pitch just over the wall in right-center for his 14th homer and first since July 31 against San Diego. Scott Rolen’s two-run single made it 7-2, and Dioner Navarro chipped in with an RBI single that dropped into left when Matt Holliday lost the ball in the sun. The Reds grabbed the lead in the third against

Jaime Garcia, making his second start since June 5 after missing 64 games with a left shoulder strain. Leake hit a leadoff double and scored on Phillips’ twoout single into right field. The Cardinals got one hit in each of the first four innings against Leake before finally pushing across a run in the fifth. Tony Cruz, Rafael Furcal and Jon Jay singled to load the bases with one out, setting up Matt Carpenter’s tying sacrifice fly. St. Louis added another run in the seventh when Cruz scampered home on Jay’s double-play ball. Garcia (3-5) allowed four runs and seven hits in six innings. He entered with a 7-1 record and a 3.12 ERA in nine career starts and two relief appearances against the Reds. “I felt good coming into the sixth inning,” Garcia said. “I left the ball up to Phillips, and I didn’t make

my pitch to Luddy. The pitch to Bruce was up, and I paid the consequences.” NOTES: Matheny said RHP Joe Kelly will start on Wednesday in Pittsburgh in place of RHP Lance Lynn, who hasn’t lasted more than five innings in any of his last four starts. Lynn pitched two-plus innings in St. Louis’ win on Friday. … Cardinals C Yadier Molina and 3B David Freese were out of the lineup due to injuries. Molina rolled an ankle a few days ago, Matheny said. Freese injured his left wrist fielding in a play at third base on Friday. … Larkin was inducted into baseball’s Hall of Fame on July 22. … The Great American Ball Park flags in left-center field were lowered to halfstaff to honor the memory of astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. Armstrong passed away earlier Saturday.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Justin Masterson handled New York’s power-packed lineup for 6 2-3 innings and Michael Brantley hit a three-run homer as the Cleveland Indians snapped a nine-game skid with a 3-1 win over the Yankees on Saturday night. It’s the second time this month that Masterson (1011) has busted a long losing streak for the Indians. On Aug. 8, he beat Minnesota and stopped Cleveland’s 11-game slide, one loss shy of the club record. Brantley homered in the first inning off Hiroki Kuroda (12-9), and the Indians, who were in playoff contention in late July, held on to win for just the fifth time in 27 games. Cleveland is 5-18 in August. Masterson, roughed up by Oakland in his previous start, allowed one run and seven hits. He walked two, struck out six and worked his way out of a major mess in the sixth. With the victory, the Indians avoided becoming the first team since the Kansas City Royals in 2006 to have two losing streaks of at least 10 games in the same season. Vinnie Pestano replaced Masterson in the seventh, inheriting two runners with two outs. Pestano walked Robinson Cano to load the bases before breaking Mark Teixeira’s bat on a popup. Chris Perez pitched a perfect ninth for his 33rd save, striking out Derek Jeter for the final out. Despite the loss, the AL East-leading Yankees remained 3 games ahead of Tampa Bay, which lost 42 to Oakland. Kuroda gave up Brantley’s homer in the first, but shut out Cleveland on just four hits over the next seven innings. Masterson coasted through five innings, allowing just three hits and holding a 3-0 lead. But the Yankees had him on the ropes in the sixth, when they loaded the bases with none out on two singles and a walk. Teixeira’s sacrifice fly to deep center made it 3-1, and Masterson walked Curtis Granderson to refill

the bases. However, Masterson got Eric Chavez on a liner to third and right fielder Shin-Soo Choo ran down Russell Martin’s drive at the warning track. As Masterson walked back to the dugout, catcher Lou Marson slapped the big right-hander on the rear end after he survived New York’s ominous threat. He got the first two outs in the seventh, but gave up consecutive singles to Jeter and Nick Swisher. Manager Manny Acta pulled Masterson, who got a loud ovation from the crowd of 34,374 nearly half of them Yankees fans as he left the field. Fortunately for the Indians, this time their bullpen didn’t let them down. In their previous 22 losses, the Indians had the lead at some point in nine of them but their relievers blew some games in the late innings. Kuroda was in trouble immediately. He hit Jason Kipnis with a pitch leading off the first and then walked Choo with one out. Kuroda struck out Carlos Santana for the second out, but Brantley drove the right-hander’s first pitch to right-center for his sixth homer. Kuroda had not given up more than three runs in his previous seven starts, but he was in an early hole and the Yankees couldn’t get anything going against Masterson. New York didn’t get its first hit until the fourth, when Cano doubled with two outs. But Masterson fooled Teixeira, who was caught looking at strike three to end the inning. Notes: Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he expects LHP Andy Pettitte to appear in another major league game this season. Pettitte has been on the disabled list with a broken left ankle since June 28. He threw in the outfield before the game and is scheduled to visit Dr. Chris Ahmad on Monday in New York. … Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez has been taking dry, soft-toss swings the past two days as he continues to recover from a broken left hand. Rodriguez has missed 28 games since going on the DL on July 25.

Roger Clemens back pitching at age 50 SUGAR LAND, Texas (AP) — Roger Clemens was back on the mound at age 50, striking out hitters again. Pitching for the first time in five years, Clemens tossed 3 1-3 scoreless innings Saturday night for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League. Clemens faced the Bridgeport Bluefish and struck out two, including former major leaguer Joey Gathright to start the game. He allowed one hit without a walk and threw 37 pitches. Despite his success, Clemens said the outing didn’t make him contemplate a return to the majors. “No, it doesn’t,” Clemens said. “I’ve had success before at that level and other things. Again, it’s a great deal of work and I’m not thinking that at this point.” Scouts from the Houston Astros and Kansas City Royals were on hand to watch Clemens’ comeback for however long it lasts and wherever it leads. “I think it will fuel that speculation,” Royals pro

scout Ron Toenjes said after watching the performance. “I just don’t know what will happen. I don’t think anyone does.” Sugar Land manager Gary Gaetti, a two-time All-Star third baseman with Minnesota, said he was impressed by Clemens’ outing after such a long layoff. He admitted before the game he was a bit concerned about how things would go because of Clemens’ age and time off. “He did a great job,” Gaetti said. “He really did.” Tal Smith, a longtime Astros executive and currently a special adviser to the Skeeters, said Clemens had great command and that he believes he could pitch in the majors again. Clemens certainly was happy to be back on a diamond instead of in a courtroom. In June, the seventime Cy Young Award winner was acquitted of charges he lied to Congress when he denied using performance-enhancing drugs. Clemens, who last pitched for the New York Yankees in 2007, worked a 1-2-3 first inning and fanned two. His fastball

was clocked at 88 mph, and he mixed in curves and splitters. He finished with four groundouts and four flyouts. Toenjes liked what he saw. “The thing that I was impressed with is you have a 50-year-old man out there throwing 87-88 (mph) most of the night, and he’s got a real good splitter,” he said. “His command wasn’t as good as it could have been, but that it was a good, hard splitter, which is what you wanted to see.” Wearing the No. 21 that he sported during his rise to fame with Boston nearly three decades ago, Clemens got a big cheer when he took the mound. After whiffing Gathright, Clemens retired Luis Figueroa on a grounder and struck out Prentice Redman to end the inning. The sellout crowd, with many fans wearing Skeeters T-shirts with Clemens’ name on them, gave him another loud ovation. Clemens didn’t allow a hit until a single by James Simmons with two outs in the second inning. He retired the next batter to

end the eight-pitch inning. Clemens has a bit of a belly that scores of 50year-olds have, but he was effective enough against many hitters who were almost half his age. The Rocket hasn’t committed to pitching more than one game for the Skeeters, but some believe this is the first step in an attempted return to the majors. Clemens is set to appear on the Hall of Fame ballot going to voters late this year. If he plays in a major league game this year, his Hall consideration would be pushed back five years. Clemens, who wore gray cleats with bright yellow accents, needed 13 pitches to get through a perfect third inning. He threw one more pitch after that and Figueroa lined out to end Clemens’ night with the Skeeters on top 1-0. He received a standing ovation as he left. He stopped to tip his cap to the appreciative overflow crowd of 7,724 before heading to the dugout to begin recuperating and see how his body responds to his big night. After Clemens left the

game, he stood along the railing of the dugout and chatted with his teammates, including fellow former major league pitcher Scott Kazmir and Jason Lane, who played with Clemens on Houston’s 2005 World Series team. Fans kept inching down near the dugout armed with phones, IPads and cameras looking to snap a picture and collect a memory of the big night in this Houston suburb about 20 minutes from downtown. Playing close to home, he had a large group of friends and family among the crowd, including wife Debbie and sons Kacy and Kody. Clemens earned about $160 million and won 354 games in a 24-year career with the Red Sox, Blue Jays, Yankees and Astros. His 4,672 strikeouts are third-most and he was picked for 11 All-Star games. Clemens bounded into the home clubhouse a little more than an hour and a half before the game wearing a gray Longhorn shirt, jeans and cowboy boots and bellowed, “how we doing, how we doing?” as he walked through shak-

ing hands with his teammates. His highlighted blond hair was a bit spiky on top, causing a couple of his teammates to ask each other if he’d gotten a new haircut. One fan held a sign which read: ‘The Rocket has landed in Sugar Land,’ and children squealed with delight as he came on the field to warm up about 30 minutes before the game. Clemens has spent much of his time out of baseball defending his reputation. He was accused by former personal trainer Brian McNamee in the Mitchell Report on drugs in baseball of using steroids and HGH, allegations Clemens denied before Congress. The Justice Department began an investigation into whether he had lied under oath, and in 2010 a grand jury indicted him on two counts of perjury, three counts of making false statements and one count of obstructing Congress. He was acquitted of all the charges on June 19 after a 10-week trial and had largely stayed out of the public spotlight until now.

Farmers grappling with Irene even a year later WAITSFIELD, Vt. (AP) — A year after Hurricane Irene swept away topsoil and crops and replaced them with rocks and contaminants, farmers from North Carolina to Vermont are rebounding but still grappling with the aftermath on top of an early spring followed by cold snaps, a dry summer and an anticipated spike in feed costs caused by the Midwestern drought. The U.S. Department of Agriculture paid farmers $78.6 million for insurance claims covering about 225,000 acres of Irene-damaged farmland in nine Northeastern states through its Risk Management Agency. Not all farmers buy crop insurance, so the figure isn’t a complete measure of the devastation. More than half the damaged land was in New York, where two crop-growing regions the Hudson and Schoharie valleys were hit especially hard. Irene’s raging waters rearranged the landscape, onto farm fields in many places, and floodwaters carrying spilled fuel and refuse eventually settled into the ground. The floodwaters last Aug. 28 swept away 128 bales of dairy farmer Doug Turner’s hay to feed his 45 cows in Waitsfield and contaminated a third of his corn


Doug Turner stands along the rebuilt river bank of the Mad River at his farm on Wednesday in Waitsfield, Vt. Devastating floods wrought by Hurricane Irene a year ago inundated farm fields in New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont, wiping out a season’s worth of work and setting up fears that the land would be unworkable this year. Since then, a warm spring followed by cold snaps, then a blazing, dry summer, have added to grower’s woes. he will finish rebuilding the banks of the Mad River, which raged last August, carrying away the rocks and trees that stabilized the banks and damaged 30 acres of his land, he said. He has had about half the riverbank work done but he said he needs $50,000 to $70,000 to fix the remainder. He has already received more than $50,000 in help from various Vermont

crop. He had to mow it down after it turned brown and moldy, then buy hay, and is still catching up from the feed loss. “You can plow and scrape and bucket as much sand as you want; there’s still an effect on the plant life. And there will be until I actually plow those fields under and turn up soil again, to kind of reincorporate it,” Turner said. But his biggest concern is how

groups that raised money to help farmers, and he plans to apply for more because he can’t afford to make payments on a loan. “I’m worried about that next flood that comes a foot over the top of the bank,” he said. “That’s the one that’s going to hurt me, and it’s going to hurt me severely.” He knows of one farm in his area that sold its herd after the storm damage and a drop in milk prices this winter, he said. Sandie Prokop, of Crossbrook Farm in New York’s Schoharie Valley, lost 230 acres of feed corn and soybeans and 80 acres of hay, along with 14 acres of land for crops that became filled with rocks, some the size of dining room tables. “We’re back. It’s still tremendous cash flow pressure,” he said. “We had no feed inventory to carry over feed was tight.” The drought has ravaged corn crops in parts of the Midwest, driving up the price of grain feed. In Pinetops, N.C., Gwen and Bert Pitt’s farm took a hit from winds that battered their 120 acres of tobacco just at the start of the harvest. There was nothing for them to do but plow it under and wait out the process of getting some money back through their federal crop insurance.

But that wasn’t until March, past the ideal time in late February for starting tobacco seeds in greenhouses. “We went and put it in because we had people who believed in us,” Gwen Pitt said of the fertilizer and seed companies willing to help before the insurance money came in. This, too, has been a tough year, she said. June windstorms tumbled the tobacco plants, requiring a crew to hand-pick leaves where the harvester wouldn’t work amid the tangle. The Pitts are also recovering from heavy damage to their cotton and soybean crops from Irene, both stunted by the heavy rains. “It’s been a challenging couple of years,” Gwen Pitt said. “Mother Nature has the last word.” Still, many farmers are optimistic about this fall’s harvest. “I’m sure a lot of farmers got left very shortchanged for last year, but because of their resilience they started over,” said Paul Hlubik, state executive director of the Farm Service Agency in New Jersey, where some growers had to scout damage in row boats, especially after the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee hit shortly after Irene.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Sunday, Aug. 26, the 239th day of 2012. There are 127 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight: On Aug. 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, guaranteeing American women the right to vote, was certified in effect by Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby.

Airlines can say: You can’t wear that With no written rules, passengers left to guess the boundaries DALLAS (AP) — Airlines give many reasons for refusing to let you board, but none stir as much debate as this: How you’re dressed. A woman flying from Las Vegas on Southwest this spring says she was confronted by an airline employee for showing too much cleavage. In another recent case, an American Airlines pilot lectured a passenger because her Tshirt bore a four-letter expletive. She was allowed to keep flying after draping a shawl over the shirt. Both women told their stories to sympathetic bloggers, and the debate over what you can wear in the air went viral.

It’s not always clear what’s appropriate. Airlines don’t publish dress codes. There are no rules that spell out the highest hemline or the lowest neckline allowed. That can leave passengers guessing how far to push fashion boundaries. Every once in a while the airline says: Not that far. “It’s like any service business. If you run a family restaurant and somebody is swearing, you kindly ask them to leave,” says Kenneth Quinn, an aviation lawyer and former chief counsel at the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration. The American Airlines passenger, who declined to

be interviewed by The Associated Press, works for an abortion provider. Supporters suggested that she was singled out because her T-shirt had a pro-choice slogan. A spokesman for American says the passenger was asked to cover up “because of the F-word on the T-shirt.” He says that the airline isn’t taking sides in the abortion debate. Last week, Arijit Guha, a graduate student at Arizona State University, was barred from a Delta flight in Buffalo, N.Y., because of a T-shirt that mocked federal security agents and included the words, “Terrists gonna kill

us all.” He says the misspelled shirt was satirical and he wore it to protest what he considers racial profiling. “I thought it was a very American idea to speak up and dissent when you think people’s rights are being violated,” Guha says. The pilot thought it scared other passengers. American and Delta are within their rights to make the passengers change shirts even if messages are political, says Joe Larsen, a First Amendment lawyer from Houston who has defended many media companies. The First Amendment prohibits government from limiting a person’s free-

speech rights, but it doesn’t apply to rules set by private companies, Larsen says. He notes that government security screeners didn’t challenge Guha private Delta employees did. In short, since airlines and their planes are private property and not a public space like the courthouse steps, crews can tell you what to wear. In the early years of jet travel, passengers dressed up and confrontations over clothing were unimaginable. They’re still rare there aren’t any precise numbers but when showdowns happen, they gain more attention as aggrieved passengers com-

plain on the Internet about airline clothing cops. It’s unwelcome publicity for airlines, which already rate near the bottom of all industries when it comes to customer satisfaction. Critics complain that airlines enforce clothing standards inconsistently. The lack of clear rules leaves decisions to the judgment of individual airline employees. Last year, a passenger was pulled off a US Airways (NYSE:LCC) jet and arrested at San Francisco International Airport after airline employees say he refused to pull up his low-hanging pants. The local prosecutor declined to file charges against Deshon Marman, a University of New Mexico football player.

Signs of destruction in Europe from World War II as photographed by Ora Hickman, a Miami County man whose son recently donated a collection of more than 200 photographs to The Miami Valley Veterans Museum.

Evidence of the Holocaust is photographed by Ora Hickman in Germany during World War II.


A look into history Donated photo collection offers timeline of soldier’s World War II service BY MELODY VALLIEU Staff Writer hey say a picture is worth a thousand words. For World War II visitors to The Miami Valley Veterans Museum, a new photograph collection is much more than that. It’s a piece of the history they actually lived. The photographs were taken by the late Covington resident Ora Hickman, and recently donated to the museum by Ora’s son, Ted Hickman. After the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, Hickman was inducted in the Army on Nov. 19, 1942. He went on active duty on Dec. 2, 1942. He was then sent to Fort Knox, Ky., to be trained as a tank mechanic for 12 weeks. On Oct. 14, 1944, Hickman left to go to the European Theater. He arrived there Oct. 29, 1944. While serving his MUSEUM country in Europe, Hickman took hunINFORMATION dreds of photographs — from landmarks, architecture and The Miami Valley destruction and more. Veterans Museum, 107 W.

He’s given us a photo time line from when (Ora) first got overseas, until the time he was discharged.” Pictures show Nazi secret weapons, such as the ME 262 — the first jet fighter in the world developed by the Germans, and a picture of Hickman and fellow soldiers standing beside a “buzz bomb,” an early pulse-jet-powered predecessor of the cruise missile. “These guys didn’t know what they found when the came upon them,” Skinner said. Skinner said the photographs are significant to the museum in many ways, from World War II veterans visiting and recalling places they also have been to a young student coming for research. Three pictures show the horrors of the SS concentration camps. The photographs do not reveal which camp this is, as he went through the Rhine Land. Although many photographs are of weapons and destruction, some show that celebrations continued despite the war, in places such as Brussels, Belgium. “Even though war was going on, the people in Brussels, Belgium, they were trying to live as normal lives as possible,” Skinner said. “Hitler wasn’t trying to bomb Brussels, and (the U.S.) really wasn’t either. Even though there are cruelties in war, there are still some civilities.



Steve Skinner from The Miami Valley Veterans Museum looks through historical photos at the museum recently.

American soldiers, including Hickman, stand with an ME 262 Buzz-Bomb, considered a Nazi secret weapon. Ora Hickman poses for a photo while serving the U.S. in Germany during World War II.

This Ora Hickman photograph shows remnants of a concentration camp located somewhere in Germany.

“The pictures show the contrast between how cruel man can be against man, yet how the cultural life goes on and how people can continue to cope with it.”

IT HAPPENED YEARS AGO BY PATRICK D. KENNEDY For the Troy Daily News 25 Years Ago: Aug. 26-Sept. 8, 1987 • MIAMI VALLEY — Six Upper Miami Valley communities have joined forces to strengthen their collective “voice” for the region. The communities of Troy, Piqua, Tipp City, Vandalia, Huber Heights and Englewood decided to organize a formal association with bylaws, purpose, etc. in order to better represent the region in business and economic affairs. Tom Dysinger, president of the Tipp City Chamber of Commerce, stated the purpose of the North I-70, I-75 Development Association is to “promote development of the northern Miami Valley and create better cooperation between the communities for the betterment of the region,” but it is also being viewed as a lobbying organization on the state and national levels. Each community will still promote the benefits of its town with the hope of encouraging businesses to locate there, but the association can also play a part in demonstrating the benefits of the area so if one community is not quite right for an industry, then another might be showcased, which in turn, will still be good for the other communities. 50 Years Ago: Aug. 26-Sept. 8, 1962 • WEST MILTON — It might be an incredibly dangerous situation, or it could be a tremendous business opportunity. Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Doll have “discovered” something unique in their home . . recently, their water tap began spouting a mix-

HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY 75 Years Ago: Aug. 26-Sept. 8, 1937 • TROY — A big step in advancement will take place at midnight on Saturday, Sept. 4, when dial telephones will be put into use in this city. The Troy Telephone Co. manager J.W. Stafford stated most of the required equipment is already in place and the remaining work will be completed by Saturday, unless there is a heavy storm that requires his crewmen to concentrate on repairs. New phone directories with the new numbers have already been delivered to residents. Stafford noted the new equipment is the most modern available and will assist Troy in looking to the future and to be at the front edge of business commmunication.

ture of water and a gas, which ignites into a water fire combination. At first, most of their friends and neighbors thought the couple was trying to see how gullible they were, but it was no fancy story telling. Still unsure of what is coming from their 116foot well, the Dolls have stated the mixture has cooked breakfast, started their brazier and, of course, even singed a few hairs on Mr. Doll’s hand. The water is odorless and nothing seems to be amiss, but the gas, when captured in a tank, was able to be ignited, so that the Dolls could cook three meals using the mysterious vapor. At first, it was a novelty and curiosity to test, but now it is a nuisance which the Dolls would rather do without. • TROY — Herman Musman declared that after six years of running the “Opti-Derby” in Troy, the Troy Optimist Club (derby sponsor) is ready for the big time. Next year’s race will be the first year of affiliation with the Akron International Soap Box Derby. Musman is quick to add that a few changes will need to be made in regard to regulations of the local race, but the

changes will be worth it and the winner of the Troy race next year, and the following years, will be eligible to travel to Akron and compete with almost 200 entries from other regions. Scholarship awards are given to the winners. Mr. Musman also added that the Optimist Club is going to expand and make next year’s event a countywide race, not just one for Troy youngsters. 75 Years Ago: Aug. 26-Sept. 8, 1937 • PIQUA — Mrs. William Freshour, who received news of her son’s tragic death on Monday, was notified that his remains would arrive in Piqua sometime Saturday afternoon Aug. 28). Lt. William Freshour was a well-known and popular young man in the Piqua, Troy and Covington areas and was stationed with the Navy in San Diego. Lt. Freshour was killed, along with four other servicemen, when the naval seaplane they were in crashed into San Diego harbor. 100 Years Ago: Aug. 26-Sept. 8, 1912 • CASSTOWN — The local

post office was closed on Labor Day, but some residents did not seem to understand why and went about contacting office personnel so they could get their mail. Also, the members of the Casstown Baptist Church have been busy with extensive repairs and refreshing their meeting house on LaFayette Street and will soon be ready for full services and gatherings. (Columnist’s Note: The Casstown Baptist Church has a history which stretches back to the old Staunton Baptist Church, which was organized in 1804 and was the first church of any kind organized in what is now Miami County. About 1851, for various reasons, the congregation decided to remove from Staunton to Casstown and erect a church building there. With most young people moving away from the village and other residents being drawn to opportunities in larger cities, the church began a slow decline until they finally closed the doors in 1930. I have been collecting information on the history of this church and would be interested in hearing from anyone who has any information on the church at Staunton or Casstown, original photos of the old Staunton meeting house, or a photo of the Casstown Church (when it was a church building) and I would be especially interested in knowing if the original records of Staunton and/or Casstown still exist somewhere. The Staunton church building was located in the small cemetery “behind” the Staunton Country Store.) • MIAMI COUNTY — The first meeting of the Progressive Party of Miami County has

taken place and its slate of delegates for the state convention in September have been chosen. The “Bull Moose” Party is ready to move forward and enjoys the support of some prominent men in the county. The names of Hobart, Means, Studebaker, DeBrey, Cosley, McKnight, Wilgus and Haines are among the delegates. (Columnist’s Note: The Progressive, or “Bull Moose” Party came about when the Republican Party was split in its support of William Howard Taft, the current President, and Theodore Roosevelt, a two-term president who had named Taft as his successor. Progressives felt President Taft was not keeping with Roosevelt’s ideals, so they convinced the former President to run for a third term and against President Taft. C.C. Hobart, founder of Hobart Brothers and Hobart Corp., became the 1912 Progressive candidate for Congress.) 146 Years Ago: Aug. 26-Sept. 8, 1866 • TROY — A number of the citizens of our fair community responded to the call for a base ball club and so we now have the Trojan Base Ball Club. The officers of the club are as follows: George D. Burgess is the president, J.T. Janvier is vicepresident, T.E. Coles, secretary and Goerge Green is the treasurer. The team is practicing on S.E. Hustler’s lot across the canal every Monday and Thursday afternoon. Patrick D. Kennedy is archivist at the Troy-Miami County Public Library’s Local History Library, 100 W. Main St. Troy, 335-4082 (

Indiana man’s passion for covered bridges on display collection,” she says. “One of the interesting things is that he didn’t photograph (many of the) bridges just one time. He has photos from different decades, and you can see changes and how things degrade over time.” Davidson says when she first saw the collection, she was impressed by a photograph Pepe had of the North Manchester covered bridge in the 1930s. “I used to walk that way when I was in college, so I knew the bridge,” she says. “Of course, there were no houses there in the 1930s. I understand that intellectually, but to see it is another thing.” Indeed, she notes, the photos depict many bridges that are no longer in existence; of the five covered bridges that once stood in Dekalb County, only one survives, and it was moved to Conner Prairie. In a newspaper interview in 2004, Pepe recalled as a child urging his parents to stop in small towns

when traveling so he could see what color the trolley cars were — just because, he said, he was curious. On one occasion, he added then, he and his wife, Eleanor, also now deceased, drove 700 miles just to photograph a bridge. “We’d get up early and pack a lunch of bologna, beans and coffee and drive all day,” he was quoted as saying. “We had some good times.” Michael Pepe says his father was meticulous about his hobby, keeping photos and clippings in scrapbooks and lists of asyet-unphotographed bridges. “He liked to cross things off his list and move on,” he says. He has a memory of his father jumping out of the car, his Argus camera in hand, snapping yet another bridge photo. He didn’t use a tripod, he says. “He did have a lot of really good pictures, and when people would ask him how he did it, he’d say, ‘I just take a lot of them,’” he recalls. “I think he did have a

the stranglehold on Germany that pushed Hitler back to the Rhine Land. Hickman also photographed pictures of a Red Ball Express convoy, a system created by Allied forces to supply their forward-area combat units moving quickly through Europe following the breakout from the DDay beaches in Normandy. The route was marked with red balls and closed to civilian traffic, the trucks were marked with red balls and given priority when on regular roads. Skinner said the trucks were driven primarily by AfricanAmerican soldiers, which is one of the only jobs they were allowed to do at the beginning of World War II. “They didn’t mess around. If they had to get somewhere, they took their jobs very serious,” Skinner said. “If they had a mission, they done it. And if you were riding in the truck, you better hold on.”

Other photographs show an American Red Cross presence in Germany and old opera houses in Brussels. Landscape photographs show a young Hickman experiencing faraway places, according to Skinner. “Chances are, as a young man, he would have not gotten to see things such as the Swiss Alps in his lifetime,” Skinner said. “And, although he saw the horrors of war, he got to see things prior to World War II, he probably never would have to got to see.” Skinner said museum artifacts such as the photo collection — and the hundreds of other items donated by veterans and their families — are an important piece of history that volunteers want to preserve for future generations to learn from. “We really want to get these stories told,” Skinner said. “It is just so important to me that these legacies stay alive.”

Library acquires collection of photos shot over decades AUBURN, Ind. (AP) — Every now and then, Sidney B. Pepe of Fort Wayne would load his wife and kids in the family Ford and set out on the open road. Michael Pepe (pronounced “Pape”) and his brother Doug would sit in the back seat and try to spot their destination — one of more than 600 covered bridges their father would visit and photograph during his lifetime. “I remember riding in the car down a dusty country road, and we’d come around a corner and there would be a bridge,” says Michael Pepe, now a 65year-old forensic engineer who lives in Fishers. “My brother and I would have a bet on who would see it first.” Their travels took the family around Indiana in the 1950s and 1960s until all of its covered bridges were documented, and into Ohio, Michigan and Illinois, Michael Pepe says. After his father retired

and before he died in February 2011 at the age of 90, he would go farther afield, photographing bridges on the way home from a trip to Florida or while traveling with Michael on business to Pennsylvania or visiting Doug in California. Now, the product of Pepe’s avocational energy is enriching public knowledge as a recent acquisition of the William H. Willennar Genealogy Center in Auburn, a service of Eckhart Public Library. The center introduced a sampling of the items at an open house Aug. 4 and is using state library grant money to catalog and digitize more than 6,000 of Pepe-related records. Michael Pepe says his father was fascinated “by anything transportation related.” “I think it just represented freedom for him, to get out and see things,” says Pepe, adding that his father also photographed railroad bridges, iron high-

avid supporter of the museum that his collection came to the public, says Darcy Davidson, a genealogy services supervisor helping to curate Pepe’s material. She says through his volunteer work Pepe got to know Auburn attorney John Martin Smith and chose him as executor of his estate. Smith, who had been library president and became the official Dekalb County historian in 1982, saw the value in the collection and wanted to make it available to the public, she says. Smith and his wife, Barbara, died in an auto accident in October, before he was able to pass on much of his knowledge about the collection, Davidson says. But she says the library was able to acquire it because officials knew Smith’s intentions. The items are significant “because of Indiana’s role as a transportation hub and because of the breadth and depth of the

Kids, no kids? One or four? When couples disagree

tant to you. On the flip side, if you pressure a spouse into having a child they don’t want, it can be detrimental not only to the marriage but to the child as well,” said Lori Freson, a therapist in Encino, Calif. It’s easy, she said, to pretend a kid divide before the nuptials doesn’t exist. “Denial and avoidance can be very powerful, especially in a love relationship,” Freson said. “Love makes us do crazy things. Most people in love don’t want to acknowledge the reasons why it might NOT work.”

Sometimes minds change. David Knoller is 65. He retired a few months ago as a medical research administrator at a hospital near his Fair Lawn, N.J., home. His wife, Rochelle, worked as a librarian for more than 20 years. They have a 28-year-old son who, Rochelle noted wryly, “doesn’t know how lucky he is to be alive.” The Knollers met in the summer of 1976, in line to renew their driver’s licenses in Manhattan. They married the following January. Like the Budds, Rochelle

was 25. Just about all of her friends were single at the time and of one thing she was certain: She didn’t want kids. “I had had a pretty unhappy childhood. I certainly didn’t enjoy the child part of it, but my parents didn’t seem to be having a good time, either,” she said. “I had made up my mind not to have a child and that was it.” David, who is five years older, was aware of her feelings. He knew he wanted to be a dad, but love won. They were best friends who enjoyed hanging out together. And they were young. They were having fun. “I figured time was on my side,” he said. “I figured that it was a discussion that could be deferred until we really got to know each other.” It worked, about six years later, when Rochelle decided without urging to get pregnant at a time she was having trouble getting her career in recreation therapy off the ground. She trained later in library science. “I occasionally used to wonder if I had found librarianship earlier would I have made this same decision, and will never know obviously,” she said. Jacqueline Newman, managing partner of a Manhattan family law firm specializing in wealthy clients, said Rochelle’s turnaround isn’t unique. A variety of factors are usually at play once somebody comes knocking on Newman’s door. When having kids is one, a change of heart by one or the other often surfaces, she said. “Your priorities shift, lifestyles shift,” Newman said, noting the case of a husband she once represented. “Both didn’t want kids, then he decided he did once they were married.

Editor writes book about experiences NEW YORK (AP) — Ken Budd fell for his high school sweetheart all over again when they reconnected after college. Both were 25 when they married. He just assumed they’d have kids one day, something he had always wanted, but it wasn’t until his father died 14 years later that he even broached the subject with his wife. The result? “I wanted to have a child and she ultimately didn’t,” Budd said. “She said she just felt like she didn’t have maternal feelings.” Far less has landed couples in divorce court, but the Burke, Va., couple — he an editor and she a nurse — made it through. Budd, now 46, said he gave up the parenting dream and channeled his fatherly feelings into volunteer work on behalf of poor kids all over the world, trips his wife came along on a couple of times. “You both wind up feeling guilty,” said Budd, who wrote a book about his travels and the reasons for them. “She feels guilty because she knows I wanted this thing but she didn’t feel like she could do it and I feel guilty because I’ve put her in this position where she feels guilty, so we both had to work through some things.” Whether it’s having children at all or how many to have, divorce attorneys and therapists said the issue rears regularly, but it’s often unrealistic to think couples can close the negotiation on kids before heading to the altar. Talking about it, at the very least, is a good idea before the rings are on. “You may resent your partner for denying you something that is so impor-

She felt completely tricked by it. Both earned lots of money, so things like hiring a nanny or quitting her job weren’t a problem. She just felt like, ‘We made a deal. You’re changing the terms of that deal.’” Count Newman among experts who believe premarital discussion of when, whether and how many kids to have can only help, even though partners grow older, careers evolve and minds may change. While her clients are high earners, money comes into play for many couples who disagree. According to a U.S. Department of Agriculture report issued in June, a middle-income family with a child born in 2011 can expect to spend about $234,900 ($295,560 if projected inflation costs are factored in) for food, shelter and other necessities to raise a child over the next 17 years. That’s a 3.5 percent from 2010. increase Expenses for transportation, child care, education and food saw the largest percentage increases, with smaller hikes in housing, clothing, health care and

miscellaneous expenses. Being clear on parenting desires is crucial heading into marriage, said Ramani Durvasula, a psychologist in Los Angeles. “This can actually be a backbreaking challenge for a relationship” because of the high potential for “unfixable regret,” she said. “That trip to Paris you didn’t take 10 years ago can be addressed even when you’re in your 70s, but decisions about kids have numerous ramifications in terms of lifestyle, finances, stress, identity.” Often, Durvasula said, couples get lost in the easy question of “Do you want kids?” They need to go deeper, “into the dealbreakers like how many? Spacing? Will one parent stop working? Where will we live? And if one person assumes having kids means four, and the other one that could really lead to tremendous strain and even a sense of betrayal if agreement can’t be reached.” A form of “bait and switch” may develop, she said, “which can result in telling a new partner what he or she wants to hear to cement the relationship and then reneging once the deal is sealed. Not a good idea.” Leigh Cummings, a family law attorney in Atlanta, sees whether to have kids as a major issue among her clients about 15 percent of the time. When she asks why such a crucial aspect of a relationship wasn’t discussed courting, the during responses usually go something like this: “Either it didn’t come up, or we just weren’t thinking about that,” said Cummings, who’s expecting her first child. “Or we were just in love, or she thought she would change his mind. It’s a huge, festering problem.”

This July 3 file photo shows Melvin Miles and D.C. Rawley, right, chatting outside Wally’s Service, a replica from the Andy Griffith Show, in Mount Airy, N.C. Tourism in Mount Airy is up since Andy Griffith died July 3, with about 10,400 people visiting the Andy Griffith Museum in July, almost double the 5,400 who visited in July 2011.

Fans visit Mount Airy looking for Mayberry MOUNT AIRY, N.C. (AP) — In the town of Mayberry from “The Andy Griffith Show,” a smalltown sheriff and his trusty deputy always outwitted big-city crooks, and problems never got much bigger than a triggerhappy kid with a slingshot. But while Mayberry was fiction, it was inspired by a real place: Mount Airy, N.C., the late Andy Griffith’s hometown. And more than a half-century after the series first aired, fans are still coming to Mount Airy, looking for a glimpse of small-town life and the simpler times portrayed on the show. Here visitors can eat at the Snappy Lunch, which Griffith’s character, Sheriff Andy Taylor, once recommended as a nice place to take a date. They can satisfy a sweet tooth at Opie’s Candy Store, named for the sheriff’s son, or book a squad car tour of the city at Wally’s Service Station. Businesses with Mayberry in the name are too numerous to count, but they include the Mayberry Motor Inn and Mayberry Trading Post. There’s also an Andy Griffith Museum and a bed-and-breakfast created from the actor’s childhood home. Recent visitors to the museum included Kimberly Lambert of DeRidder, La., and her family. “If I make a statement that doesn’t quite fit in with the thinking of 2012 and the liberalism of things, I’ll usually say that they may sound a little bit Mayberry to someone else, but that’s what we believe,” said Lambert. “It’s a way of life. I’ve always perceived the Mayberry show as a way of life.” People come to Mount Airy “to walk where he walked,” said Tanya Jones, executive director of the Surry Arts Council. “This is Andy Griffith’s hometown. You go to Salzburg in Europe because Mozart was born there. This town influenced his creation of the fictional town. I don’t think in any way that Mayberry is Mount Airy. But I definitely, absolutely, unequivocally think Mount Airy influenced his creation.”

Mike and Terry Jones sitting outside Wally’s Service, a replica of the Andy Griffith Show, in Mount Airy, N.C. Visitors to the town can take a squad car tour of the city. Mount Airy is nestled in the state’s Piedmont region, about 35 miles northwest of WinstonSalem. Tourism in Mount Airy is up since Griffith died, with about 10,400 people visiting the Andy Griffith Museum in July, almost double the 5,300 who visited in July 2011. More than 2,500 showed up at the museum in the three days after Griffith’s death July 3, and so many came for autographs from actress Betty Lynn who played Thelma Lou, the deputy’s girlfriend that fans had to be turned away after the first 500. “People cry when they

meet me,” said Lynn, 85. “It’s the nostalgia … I don’t know. But it’s very touching.” She still watches “The Andy Griffith Show” on a local channel at 5:30 p.m. each weekday, sometimes skipping the dinner that’s served at the same time in her residential community. The show still makes her laugh, she said, recounting the episode where the sheriff and his steady girl Helen Crump get stuck in a cave. Griffith’s recent passing may also attract more visitors to the 23rd annual Mayberry Days, scheduled for Sept. 27-30. The event typically attracts 25,000 to 30,000 people. This year, the Surry Arts Council, which sponsors the event, plans tributes to both Griffith and George Lindsey, the actor who played Goober and who died in May. Tourism, with an estimated economic impact of more than $100 million, is the second-most important industry in Mount Airy’s home of Surry County, behind agriculture. Its growth has helped to staunch the loss of 10,000 jobs in the past decade with the demise of textiles and furniture. “Andy saved the town,” says Emmett Forrest, Griffith’s friend since childhood and proprietor of the museum. Forrest points out shopping cen-

ters with big box stores on each side of Mount Airy, a scenario that “usually dries up Main Street. But because of Andy and our tourism, we’ve got a Main Street with no empty stores.” But sustaining tourism and the mythology Griffith built around his hometown sometimes means keeping the real world at bay, just as the show did. The show aired during a tumultuous era 1960 to 1968 but its scripts studiously avoided references to current events, serving instead as a refuge from headlines about the Vietnam War, civil rights clashes and the assassination of President Kennedy. You won’t learn about Griffith’s politics at the museum named for him (though he supported President Obama’s health care plan), and political and advocacy groups are prohibited from taking part in Mayberry Days, where guests are asked to avoid politics in their speeches. “On that weekend, we’re celebrating the anniversary of ‘The Andy Griffith Show’ and Andy Griffith’s legacy and life,” said Jones. “And we’re celebrating the whole atmosphere of Mayberry, the simpler time.” And that’s what visitors want. “It’s been a dream of ours to come up here for a long time,” said Clint McHan, of Ackerman, Miss., who visited the museum with his wife, Jamie, and their son, Paxton. “I just wanted to be on the street, knowing that he walked on that street.” On the show, he said, “you don’t have to worry about anything.”

Hollywood’s 3 Bs for fall: Bond, Bella, Bilbo LOS ANGELES (AP) — The B-list rules Hollywood’s fall and holiday movie season: Bond, Bella and Bilbo. Daniel Craig is back as James Bond in “Skyfall,” the super-spy’s first adventure in four years, one of the longest 007 hiatuses in the franchise’s 50-year history. Kirsten Stewart returns for her swan song as Bella Swan, alongside vampire hubby Robert Pattinson and jealous werewolf pal Taylor Lautner in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2,” the franchise finale. And Bilbo Baggins goes jewelry shopping for an evil ring in “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” the first installment in Peter Jackson’s three-part prelude to his Academy Awardwinning adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings.” Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, Elijah Wood and others reprise their “Lord of the Rings” roles, but “The Hobbit” hinges on newcomer Martin Freeman as Bilbo. The filmmakers were so set on him that production halted for three months while Freeman returned to “Sherlock,” the British TV hit in which he plays Dr. Watson. “It was sort of unheard of for a big-budget movie, but because we wanted him so badly, the studio supported us, and we made that provision in our schedule,” Jackson said. “He carries the movie. You get that casting wrong and you’re in huge trouble.” Here’s a look at other upcoming highlights: SEPTEMBER: Adam Sandler’s in voiceonly mode as Dracula in the animated monster mash “Hotel Transylvania.” Joaquin Phoenix stars as a World War II vet mesmerized by a cult leader (Philip Seymour Hoffman) in “The Master.” For baseball fans, there’s “Trouble with the Curve,” starring Clint Eastwood as an old-timer on a scouting trip with his daughter (Amy Adams).

Viselman is taking a new approach to the preschool audience. The movie opens Aug. 29 and will have auditory and visual cues that prompt the children to sing and dance in the aisles. “Why do we try to make children do what they’re naturally not able to do at the age?” Viselman asks of

making them sit still and quiet. Sitting in Starbucks, you’d never know the bespectacled man with a wordy tattoo wrapped around his right arm was instrumental in creating some of the biggest movements in children’s television programming. Before

embarking on a career for the preschool set, he worked in the garment industry. A change in career came when “Thomas the Tank Engine” creator Britt Allcroft brought Viselman on board in 1990 to market merchandise from the show. At first, Viselman says he was “going through the

Paul Auster reflects on the winter of his life BY ANN LEVIN AP Book Reviewer “Winter Journal” (Henry Holt and Co.), by Paul Auster: Thirty years ago, a struggling poet and translator of French poetry published a memoir of his father that marked him as a writer worth watching. “The Invention of Solitude” ended a bleak few years in Paul Auster’s life when his first marriage had disintegrated, he was suffering from writer’s block, and he could barely eke out a living. After its publication, Auster threw his considerable energy into prose, producing a stream of novels, essays and screenplays including the 1995 Wayne Wang film “Smoke” that, in the years since, have won him acclaim. Now 65 just old enough to collect Social Security but to his way of thinking, almost at death’s door Auster gives us “Winter Journal,” a bookend to “Invention of Solitude” and a somber meditation on growing old. Amid some lovely observation and a few distracting literary devices, the book is roughly organized as a catalog of “what it has felt like to live inside this body.” Thus, the scars on his face trigger memories of childhood accidents. We learn about a false heart attack, other curious psychosomatic ailments and the inevitable, and predictable, “years of phallic obsession.” Memoir writing is hard unless the author is a recovering addict, former president or aging rock star and readers may well wonder why they should care. Fans of Auster’s postmodern fiction will, of course, and so might the bohos of Brooklyn, where Auster put down roots long before that borough became trendy. But readers who aren’t as familiar with Auster’s work may find themselves put off by his intensely selfconscious mannerisms, especially his unfortunate decision to write this in the second person. In an interview before publication, Auster says it “would have been too hermetic, too egocentric” to use the traditional “I” voice. In fact, it’s just the opposite. Readers are so used to the first person that it goes almost unnoticed, while the “you” continually calls attention to itself. Even worse, the cumulative effect is one of an unseemly self-regard, as though he is admiring himself in a mirror. Although it’s a given that writers are unusually interested in their own artistic process, Auster is best when he steps outside himself and observes the world around him. He has a good eye, a long memory and an elegant way with words, and these skills, without all the gimmicks, often combine to produce memorable results.

TIPS Here are some tips from experts for getting happy: â&#x20AC;˘ Get moving. Exercise doesn't have to mean pushing yourself to extremes in the gym. Do something that increases your heart rate and sounds fun to you. â&#x20AC;˘ Savor the simple things in life. Take note and embrace those every-day simple pleasures in life: the sounds of chirping birds, fresh air, beautiful sunsets. â&#x20AC;˘ Stop procrastinating. Spend 15 minutes every day tackling a project or task you've been putting off. â&#x20AC;˘ Surround yourself with happy people. Have you noticed happy people seem to make those around them happy? Indeed, happiness begets happiness. And if you're not feeling happy, act happy. Put a smile on your face. The feelings will follow. â&#x20AC;˘ Start a gratitude journal. Count your blessings and write about them. Studies show people who focus on what they are thankful for are far happier than those who don't.

“Custom Built Quality At An Affordable Price.”




Average on 30-year loans up to 3.66% WASHINGTON (AP) — Average U.S. rates on fixed mortgages have risen for a fourth straight week, remaining slightly above record lows. Cheap mortgages have helped fuel a modest housing recovery this year. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac (NYSE:FRE) says the rate on the 30-year loan increased to 3.66 percent, up from 3.62 percent last week. Four weeks ago, the rate fell to 3.49 percent, the lowest since long-term mortgages began in the 1950s. The average on the 15-year fixed mortgage, a popular refinancing option, edged up to 2.89 percent. That’s up from 2.88 percent last week and from the record low of 2.8 percent four weeks ago. The availability of low rates has lifted home sales higher this year. Prices also have increased, largely because the supply of homes has shrunk while sales have risen. Builder confidence is also at its highest level since March 2007, according to a survey by the National Association of Home Builders. The housing market’s recovery will likely add to economic growth in 2012 for the first time in seven years. Home purchases, construction and prices are gradually but consistently increasing, though they remain far below levels seen in a healthy economy. Sales of previously occupied homes rose 2.3 percent in July from June to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.47 million, the National Association of Realtors reported this week. Over the past 12 months, sales have jumped more than 10 percent. New-home sales have been strengthening, too. Sales in the United States rose 3.6 percent in July to match a two-year high reached in May, the Commerce Department said Thursday. The seasonally adjusted annual rate last month was 372,000, though still well below the 700,000 pace that economists consider healthy. Toll Brothers, a builder of high-end homes, is enjoying its most sustained demand in more than five years. All of which is a big change for the residential real estate industry, which has been a major drag on the economy since the housing bubble burst more than five years ago. Still, the housing market has a long way to go to reach a full recovery. The pace of home sales remains well below healthy levels. Many people are still having difficulty qualifying for home loans or can’t afford larger down payments required by banks. Mortgage rates are low because they tend to track the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. A weaker U.S. economy and uncertainty about how Europe will resolve its debt crisis have led investors to buy more Treasury securities, which are considered safe investments. As demand for Treasurys increase, the yield falls. To calculate average rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country on Monday through Wednesday of each week. The average rate on one-year adjustable rate mortgages fell to 2.66 percent from 2.69 percent last week.

BY MARY CAROL GARRITY Scripps Howard News Service I’m crazy about high-luster mercury glass: all the sparkle and none of the polishing work of real silver. I have been using mercury-glass accents in my decorating for years, but I took an even brighter shine to it when I discovered the most adorable mercury-glass pumpkins and gourds at market. They are my top pick for fall decorating this year. Here are five fabulous looks featuring the mercuryglass pumpkins and gourds. • Look 1: The Center of Everything This fall, we are having lots of fun dreaming up tableaus that play up the juxtaposition of the cool, sleek mercury glass with the organic textures and rich colors of fall. Bruce, a visual designer, set the stage by placing two of our favorite buffet lamps on either side of the centerpiece. Not only do the silver lamps add sparkle and shine of their own, but with their dark shades, they cast light downward, acting like spotlights for the star of the show: the centerpiece. When creating a display, the key is to work high to low. Bruce used a cut-glass compote as a riser, topped the mouth of the compote with a fall wreath and then nestled three mercury-glass pumpkins inside. Next, he created a bed of fall leaf sprigs to hold more mercury-glass pumpkins. Two tiny wreaths served as nests for additional pumpkins. He finished off with a mercury-glass partridge figurine. The design is fabulous because it’s simple to create, but looks layered and lush. • Look 2: Beautiful Balance for a Buffet If you want a gorgeous look for your buffet, but you don’t want to invest a lot of time (or money), this is the arrangement for you. Start by placing a substantially sized lamp at the center of your buffet to serve as the high point of the display. Then, flank the lamp with two matching mercury-glass arrangements. Simple, balanced and stunning, this display gives a clean look for fall. • Look 3: Magnificent Mantel Display For a fall mantel treatment, Bruce used mercuryglass accents in a supporting role, not as the stars of the


Mercury-glass pumpkins are glorious accents. display. That honor went to a transferware plate, carefully selected to repeat the reds in the faux fall greenery, which gives a mantel display so much depth. The plate is held in place by a few twiggy trays. Inexpensive and versatile, these trays are a mainstay for me, especially when I decorate for fall. They work wonderfully as chargers for fall place settings and as the base of fall table displays. Bruce again worked high to low to create a richly layered asymmetrical mantel display. The high point is a mercury-glass gourd perched on top of a mercury-glass candlestick, backed by a spray of fall leaves. The display flows

down to the left, to the plate and trays. The shortest layer is a matching twig tray filled with mercury-glass pumpkins. The thread that holds all these pieces together is the spray of fall leaves that ensconces each unit of the tableau, making them into one. To get a more threedimensional look, Bruce poked in some grass and berry picks, and let the sprays and picks dangle down the side and front of the mantel. • Look 4: Coffee-Table Creation Bruce selected a few favorite fall icons as the backdrop for our mercury-glass gourds and pumpkins: green-

ery, including a sprig of fall leaves that features a tiny bird’s nest; an adorable chalkboard for back to school; and some old books. Look 5: Splashy Occasional Table Bruce pulled together a super-simple bowl of mercury-glass gourds in a jiff to balance out the sparkling silver in the drink service on an occasional table. Start with a beautiful bowl. If you want a punch of color or some added texture, line it with a piece of fabric, perhaps a geometric print napkin. Then just fill in with a tumble of shimmering mercury-glass gourds and pumpkins. Five seconds, and you are done!


Eight things to consider before relocating Moving to a new area can be daunting. You can ease the anxiety if you do your home work and take a few precautions that might not be necessary if you were selling one house and buying another one in the same area. First consider why you want to move to a new location. Empty nesters whose family lives elsewhere often want to move to be closer to children and grandchildren. Financial considerations often enter into the decision. The cost of living may be lower elsewhere than it is where you currently live. Whatever the reason, you should consider your motivation carefully. What may seem like a good idea on the surface could look less desirable after you factor in the aspects of

For example, you may have a large circle of friends and family in your current location that provides support you need. Or if you have serious medical issues, you may need to stay close to your medical providers.

Make a list of all the services and amenities you want in the new location. Like buying a home, you may not find everything you want and need. But you should be able to satisfy your needs and a good portion of what you want in the new place. Otherwise, it may not be worth changing places. Moving is expensive. You don’t want to find out in a year or so that you made a mistake and wish you hadn’t sold your old home and made the move.

Michael Sestak does more than light up a room. The lighting designer transforms space with artful use of LEDs and other energy-efficient breakthroughs. He has helped many clients see their homes or businesses in a whole different way. “You want to make it magic,” Sestak said. “You don’t want to see the wires or the glare of bulbs. Lighting is supposed to illuminate space. It’s all about placement. That affects what you see and how you see it.” And with LEDs, there are a lot more options on where lights can go. LEDs — light-emitting diodes — are coming into their own, pushed by both industry innovation and recent federal mandates to develop energysaving alternatives to traditional incandescent bulbs. The nationwide switch to more efficient lighting not only saves electricity, it offers opportunities to put lighting in different places in different ways. “The technology behind lighting is different, but we still see it as light,” Sestak said. “We’ve also become increasingly aware of the cost (of lighting) when we open our electric bill.” Energy costs have everyone paying more attention to lighting options. While more expensive to install, LEDs can save a lot of money over their long lifetimes. “The LED market virtually exploded the last five years,” Sestak said. “The whole industry readjusted in such a short time. But that also meant that designers had to adjust.” own house in Sestak’s Carmichael, Calif., is a prime example of what can be done with LEDs. For example, the path to the pool and outdoor bar is lit with 25 inground LED fixtures that can put on a colorful light show. More LEDs turn glass plates into a fanciful sculpture. After dark, they make glass ornaments sparkle and the water in bubbling fountains glisten. These little lights make the nighttime garden come to life. Indoors, LEDs work their electronic magic, too. In the living room, they offer pinpoint spotlights to

accent paintings and sculpture. Tucked under cabinets, they brighten kitchen counters. Behind glass plates in the master bath, they seem to light mirrors from within. Sestak uses other energy-saving options, too. Over the dinner table, halogen spotlights on a circular track create an unusual chandelier. The lights make ribbon-hung glass ornaments dazzle. At the same time, diners can still comfortably see their food, thanks to other lights focused at the table. “In this chandelier, it catches the light instead of being illuminated from within,” Sestak explained. “Other lights illuminate the center of the table like a little stage.” In his professional life, Sestak used to be focused on the food. He was a pastry chef. His lighting business started with remodeling his home. “Friends said, ‘I like what you did; can you do that for us?’ ” Sestak recalled. “One thing led to another. I love learning. I became fascinated by what light does and how it works.” Both lighting and pastry offer outlets for creativity. “That creative thread runs through me no matter the medium,” he said. “I’ll always find a way to be creative, whether it’s sugar or electricity. “I specialized in pastry because of the wow factor. Lighting is all show — you want that ‘aha’ factor that you get with the right light in the right setting. It was a nice next step.” And science is at the root of both. “Pastry is all chemistry; lighting is all about electricity,” he said. “You’ve got to know wiring. It’s a science, too.” Consumers also are learning more about the science of lighting. LEDs continue to evolve along with their uses. So does their appeal and acceptance in the marketplace. “We’ve seen tremendous growth in the LED category,” said Alyssa Steele, an associate merchant at the Home Depot’s national headquarters in Atlanta. “The retail prices have dropped, too. People are reaping the benefits of energy savings.” LEDs offer a lot of lumens along with exceptionally long life and energy savings.

The Internet provides a wealth of information about communities around the country and homes for sale. Hook up with a good real estate agent in an area where you think you want to live and ask to be sent information about new listings that might suit your needs. Or sign up with an online listing notification service with a home listing website like Inventories of homes for sale in desirable locations are very low in some areas, which may complicate an easy move from one location to the next. A tight market can also mean that rentals are expensive and hard to find. However, renting for a while in a new location is a good idea if you’ve never lived there. It gives you the opportunity to get to know neighborhoods in the new area and make a decision on where you want to live based on firsthand experience. Talk to homeowners in the area to find out what they like least about living there. THE CLOSING: Check with your financial adviser to find out the monetary and tax consequences of relocating and if this is the right time to make the move.

Bachelor-pad makeover has personality BY CANDICE OLSON Scripps Howard News Service Jean Francois is a single guy who loves adventure travel — rock-climbing, hiking and backpacking, in particular. While scaling sheer rock faces in the far corners of Earth, he collected special souvenirs along the way, and took lots of photos. He’s not exactly a condo kind of guy, so he recently bought a pint-sized, one-bedroom house that was just the kind of place he wanted to call home. But it was missing that personal touch. Jean Francois bought a sofa and positioned it in the tiny living room, but then drew a blank when it came to filling the rest of the space with his few, but meaningful, possessions.

Coleus an incredible plant BY JOE LAMP’L Scripps Howard News Service When you think of the incredible colors of a summer garden you think flowers, right? But exuberant color doesn’t always need dazzling flowers and shimmering summer sunshine. You can have displays of incredible color in lower light without a flower in sight, thanks to coleus. Coleus is a member of the mint family, with its characteristic square stems and oppositely arranged leaves. It’s actually a heat-loving herbaceous perennial, but is usually treated as an annual, since even the slightest breath of frost will turn it to mush. There are no USDA zones warm enough to grow it through the winter consistently. In spring, when the soil temperature stays above 55 degrees F, it’s time to plant in part-sun and well-drained soil. The colorful leaves come in many shades of purple, red, orange, pink, green and yellow — just about every color except blue — in dozens of patterns, shapes and sizes, from tiny, spotted and marbled to gigantic, toothed, lobed and divided. They come in upright form, mounding, creeping and trailing. And while coleus can be over-wintered in pots in the house, the mature plants are more likely to bloom or harbor pests and diseases. It’s better to take cuttings or buy new plants each spring. Morning sun and afternoon shade is the rule of thumb for any coleus. But breeders have been introducing lots of sunGOOD


tolerant varieties that can take a lot more light than many of the older hybrids. Most have “solar” or “sun” in their names, and sport brighter reds and more vivid greens in their foliage. Coleus with variegated leaves of white, cream or yellow will turn green in too much sun. Coleus likes even moisture best, but in shade will do better with drier soil. In full sun, be sure to give all coleus plenty of water. It may wilt in high heat, but will spring back quickly when given a drink. A 2- to 3inch layer of mulch over the soil will help retain muchneeded moisture down by the roots. Even with its fabulous color, coleus doesn’t need a lot of feeding. My plants stay looking great all season simply by planting in compost-rich soil. Coleus grows quickly. When the plant is getting started, pinch the stems back by about one-third to keep them compact and full. Deadhead any flowers you see developing to keep the plant robust and growing strong. Grown outdoors, coleus is largely pest-free. Inside, keep an eye out for mealy bugs, spider mites and aphids. An occasional spray of insecticidal soap should keep them under control. Most coleus mail-order and Internet sources sell named varieties, while the cheaper garden-center offerings sometimes go unidentified. There can be a lot of confusion about cultivar names, but with so many to choose from, just pick the ones that catch your eye! Here are a few favorites, listed

room area to be a place where Jean Francois could entertain a few friends in relaxed comfort. A stylish, yet welcoming, burnt-orange settee is flanked by two tall full-height custom bookcases, providing lots of display space for his travel mementos and books. We installed mirrored tiles on the wall behind the settee to reflect light and give the illusion of more space. If I had to choose one “showstopper” piece in this makeover, it would be the custom-made table designed specifically to reflect Jean Francois’ personality. This solid, round steel table sits on a base that incorporates actual rocks, bringing to mind the many cliffs he has scaled. It’s a raw, yet refined, piece that reflects its owner’s personality to a T. To make this space even more personal, we used some of Jean Francois’ own photos to create tall photography scrolls that we positioned on either side of the doorway leading into the front hall. Fresh paint, a stylish new flat radiator, new full-height draperies and the soft new lighting all combine to give this space a completely different feel. It’s still compact, but multifunctional and hardworking, doing triple duty as lounge, library and dining room. Best of all, this bachelor-pad makeover was designed with Jean Francois in mind. We took care to create a space that would truly be home; a place where this world traveler could hang his hat, at least temporarily, while he plans his next adventure.

CAUTION Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable.

KTH Parts offers a very attractive benefit package, competitive wage, and a team oriented manufacturing environment, including: I Starting wage of $14.97/hr. plus shift differential I Pay increases every 6 months over the next two years I Health care (Rx card), dental, and vision coverage I Defined benefit retirement plan I 401(k) plan I Perfect attendance bonuses (quarterly) I Paid holidays, vacations, and shut-downs Qualified candidates should send a resume to:
