Third annual event set for Friday Victim testifies at shooting trial Testifying only feet away from the man accused of shooting him several times during a drug deal Dec. 5, 2011, at Fountain Park, victim Michael Butts told a jury he played dead in his car so his assailant would stop shooting him. “The last time he tried shooting me in the face and I threw my arms up,” Butts testified. “I pretended to be dead so he would stop shooting me.”

Laura woman dies in crash BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer

The secret to great grilling If you want to master the art of grilling, you need to accept the idea that more heat isn’t necessarily better heat. In other words, just because your grill is able to crank out 60,000 BTUs doesn’t mean you should let it.That’s because the key to great grilling actually isn’t intense heat, but something far more nuanced called indirect heat. In fact, when I’m grilling, I use indirect heat at least 80 percent of the time. See Page A7.

BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer A WACO flight simulator, carryout restaurant offerings and Zumba and karate demos are only a few of the additions to Troy Streets Alive, slated for 5-9 p.m. Friday over eight blocks downtown. In its third time running, Troy Main Street organizers sought to kick entertainment up a notch, while also focusing on expanding food selections. In response to informal feedback, many restaurants will offer special togo items, as some people said they prefer strolling through the free event rather than spending time inside eating. Bakehouse Bread & Cookie Company, for example, will sell grilled vegetable, margarita or Mediterranean flat breads by the slice. “We’re trying to have the restaurants provide food in a quick, convenient way. People like to walk around the event,” said Troy Main Street Executive Director Karin Manovich. Still, she said there’s no doubting the popularity of dining indoors or on the patios. “People really like eating out in downtown Troy,” Manovich said. “The patios are great, and people love

Farewell to a hero Armstrong Museum board member Donna Grube of St. Marys places a photograph of Neil Armstrong in a place of honor in front of the podium prior to the memorial service at the Armstrong Museum in Wapakoneta Wednesday. Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon on July 20, 1969, died Saturday at the age of 82 from complications of heart procedures. Wednesday night’s “Wink at the Moon” remembrance memorial honored the family’s request that when people look at the moon on a clear night think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.

SEPTEMBER 7, 8, & 9



TOWSON, Md. (AP) — The teenager accused of shooting an intellectually disabled classmate at a suburban Maryland high school was accustomed to firearms in the home and had endured his parents’ contentious divorce, court documents show. After 15-year-old Robert Wayne Gladden Jr. was taken into custody Monday, police executed a search warrant at the Kingsville home where he lives with his mother and stepfather. What they found, according to court documents: 11 guns, including shotguns, rifles, a 9mm handgun and two antique pistols. Police also found a spent rifle casing in Gladden’s bedroom and collected “miscellaneous live ammunition� from

the master bedroom where most of the guns were found. Police also recovered marijuana. A bail review hearing for Gladden, who has been charged as an adult with attempted murder and assault, was postponed Wednesday afternoon because the teen was still at a state psychiatric hospital where he was sent for an evaluation. He is being held without bail, and a new hearing was not immediately scheduled. According to Baltimore County police, the pale, longhaired sophomore used a shotgun to fire at random in the cafeteria of Perry Hall High School Monday morning. Daniel Borowy, a 17year-old who has Down syn-

• Antique Farm Machinery • Demonstrations • Entertainment • Fun for All Ages

drome, was shot in the back and critically wounded. Gladden’s attorney, George Psoras, said his client brought the shotgun to school to intimidate bullies and did not intend to shoot anyone. Police have said bullying was not a motive for the shooting. Psoras said Wednesday that he planned to file a motion to move the case to juvenile court. Court documents indicate Gladden had a troubled home life. His parents were involved in contentious divorce proceedings that stretched over four years and included custody disputes. Documents show his father was behind more than $8,400 on his child support payments. Gladden’s 41-year-old

father, Robert W. Gladden, also has a history of trouble with the law. In 2010, the younger Gladden answered the door when police executed a search warrant at his father’s home, looking for drugs and guns, documents show. Police seized a 12gauge shotgun during that search along with marijuana, and prosecutors later sought the forfeiture of the shotgun and a .45-caliber handgun. Meanwhile, Gladden’s stepfather, 43-year-old Andrew Piper, faces new charges of illegal gun possession and drug possession stemming from Monday’s search. Piper was prohibited from possessing firearms because of a previous conviction for grand theft, documents show.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The New York Times on Rep. Todd Akin’s comments: Republicans are frantically trying to get U.S. Rep. Todd Akin to drop out of the Senate race in Missouri after his remark about abortion and rape, but not because it was offensive and ignorant. They’re afraid he might lose and cost them a chance at a Senate majority next year. He would surely be replaced by a Republican who sounds more reasonable but holds similarly extreme views on abortion, immigration, gay rights and the role of government because those are the kinds of candidates the party nominates these days in state after state. Like many Republicans, including the vice presidential candidate, Paul Ryan, Akin opposes abortion even when a woman has been raped. But, in an interview that was aired on Aug. 19, Akin went further and decided to explain his position by saying that pregnancy rarely results from rape because “if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” His comments betray more than a remarkable unfamiliarity with the human reproductive system. They expose a widely held belief among many fierce abortion opponents that a rape exception will be abused by women whose rapes were not “legitimate.” The principal difference between Akin and most other Republican candidates is that they would be more decorous in inventing reasons to strip women of their abortion rights. One of the two candidates Akin defeated in the Republican primary supported the overturn of Roe v. Wade; the other supported a constitutional amendment saying life begins at conception. All three positions are outside the mainstream of American opinion, but they are pretty much in the dead center of Republican thinking. If the party wanted to end these kinds of embarrassing moments, it could return to the days when it nominated mainstream candidates. Savannah (Ga.) Morning News on military justice: Enlisted soldiers who frequently break the rules in the Army typically don’t get much mercy. The same thing should apply to generals. In fact, if allegations against a four-star general accused of abusing his position prove true, the Pentagon must show that rank doesn’t have its privileges. A Defense Department investigation has found that Gen. William “Kip” Ward, who headed the U.S. Africa Command, used military vehicles to shuttle his wife on shopping trips and to a spa and billed the government for a refueling stop overnight in Bermuda, where the couple stayed in a $750 suite. That’s not all. The 99-page report alleges excessive unauthorized spending and travel costs for the general, including lengthy stays at lavish hotels for Ward, his wife and his staff members, and the use of five-vehicle motorcades when he traveled to Washington. It said he also misused his position and his staff’s time and received reimbursement for travel expenses that far exceeded the approved daily military rate without approval. The general is facing possible demotion for his activities, which is only right. If a soldier who had a lesser rank was found abusing his position, he’d be busted down immediately. He also could be forced to repay the government, which is only right. The U.S. military is facing drastic spending cuts. It’s hard to pay the bills when generals and their wives are spending U.S. tax dollars on $750-a-night hotel rooms. It’s likely that a lot of soldiers who do their jobs for less pay and less glory are watching this case to see whether the Army holds its top brass accountable. If the allegations are true, then the general deserves to get busted.

My mornings usually leave me in mourning There was a time in the not too distant past when the only obligations I had to the world were making sure I was still breathing and not, in fact, in a prison cell. Frequently, I was able to do one of these things. Sometimes, I was able to do both. These days, however, my life has changed quite considerably. Now I am charged with making sure my children are ready for school every morning, which, more often than not, makes the prison cell seem like a pretty desirable option. Getting my kids ready for school in the mornings is a chore that, more often than not, ends in tears. Sometimes my kids get pretty upset, too. The first order of business is getting my kids out of bed. This usually involved my wife lovingly reaching over and tenderly grabbing my eyelids, pulling them back as far as they will go and gently whispering into my ear, “GO GET THE KIDS OUT OF BED BEFORE SOPHIE MISSES THE BUS!” Once the kids are out of bed — which almost always involved me threatening to withhold food and water for the rest of their lives — there is the little matter of getting them cleaned up for the coming school day. At 7 a.m.,

David Fong Troy Daily News Executive Editor I have a very different definition of clean than my wife does. If it were up to her, my children would be scrubbed enough to perform surgery. If it were up to me, so long as I didn’t see roaches crawling on them, they’d pretty much be ready for the school day. As is usually the case with such things, my wife always wins that battle. Once the kids have been thoroughly hosed down, there’s the little matter of getting them dressed for the school day. Again, my wife and I have very different ideas of what constitutes proper school attire. As far as I’m concerned, if my kids wanted to wear their swimsuits to school that day, it would be OK with me — provided it would get me back to bed sooner. My wife, on the other hand, insists our children are dressed to the nines (I’d be perfectly sat-

— Ruth Scott Troy Lunch Club, Inc. Director

isfied with them being dressed to the twos), which involves minute details such as sending them to school with a shoe on each foot. Again, I usually lose this battle and spend half my morning searching for clothes that don’t have any swear words printed on them for them to wear to school. Once they are dressed, there’s the little matter of feeding them breakfast before sending them off to school. Personally, I think giving them Pixie Stix and Pop Rocks would give them that extra boost of energy they need for the school day — and, more important, it would involve little to no effort on my part. This, of course, does not fly in my house, mostly because my wife is uptight and doesn’t find visits from Children’s Services nearly as amusing as I do. Usually it takes my kids about 45 minutes to eat breakfast, mostly because they are too busy watching “Dora and Diego” or “Phineas and Ferb” or something else that is not, technically speaking, “ESPN Sportscenter” in the mornings to actually eat. Usually they finish eating roughly three minutes before the bus comes to take Sophie to school. This is almost always the time Sophie remembers she has a project due at school that day.

Usually, this project is something along the lines of “build a working replica of Hoover Dam, to include a full set of schematic designs and a 400-page report on the economic and social impacts of hydroelectric power.” She was usually assigned the project months ago, but somehow managed to forget until the bus was pulling up. At this point, I hand her a shoe box and some modeling clay and tell her to work on it when she gets to school. Then I hustle her off to the bus stop. It’s usually at the bus stop that another kid in her class tells her the project isn’t due for another two weeks. Fortunately, once Sophie is on the bus to school and Michelle is taking Max to preschool, I can head back to bed. This lovely slumber usually lasts about five minutes, when I get a phone call from the school because Sophie forgot her lunch box. Fortunately, I sent some Pixie Stix and Pop Rocks in her backpack. She can eat those — I’m going back to bed. Troy’s very own David Fong appears on Thursdays in the Troy Daily News. He misses his own school daze.

AN OHIO COMMUNITY MEDIA NEWSPAPER 224 S. Market St. Troy, Ohio 45373 335-5634


Thursday, August 30, 2012

Victim testifies at shooting trial BY WILL E SANDERS Ohio Community Media Testifying only feet away from the man accused of shooting him several times during a drug deal Dec. 5, 2011, at Fountain Park, victim Michael Butts told a jury he played dead in his car so his assailant would stop shooting him. “The last time he tried shooting me in the face and I threw my arms up,” Butts testified. “I pretended to be dead so he would stop shooting me.” Asked by Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Tony Kendell to point out his attacker in common pleas court Wednesday during the attempted aggravated murder trial of Aaron D. Tubbs, Butts pointed to the defense table at Tubbs. “Are you sure?” Kendell asked. “No question at all,” Butts replied. “I’ll never forget his face.” “Is there any doubt?” the prosecutor followed up. “No sir, none,” the victim responded from the witness stand. “It was him.” Butts, a Piqua resident, sustained four, close range gunshot wounds to the chin, the right chest, the right abdomen and right arm; spent more than a week in the hospital; and needed seven pints of blood. He later made a recovery, but said he still suffers from pain and immobility associated with the near-fatal shooting. Butts told the jury he met with Tubbs on two occasions earlier on in the day before the shooting and stated he spoke or communicated with Tubbs between 10 to 15 times before meeting in the 1300 block of Forest Avenue, where Butts planned to pay $1,600 for a pound and a half of marijuana from Tubbs. He said once Tubbs pulled over to park his green Ford Taurus that Tubbs came over to his passenger side door and said “give me all your money.” “And then he just started shooting,” Butts recalled. The jury also heard the 91-1 call Butts placed after his attacker fled the scene. “I just got shot! I just got

TROY shot!” Butts is heard exclaiming on the tape. “I’m at Fountain Park.” Butts spent just over an hour testifying before the jury of four men and eight women during the second day of the trial. Tubbs, 28, has been charged with attempted aggravated murder, aggravated robbery (with a gun specification), having a firearm while under disability and trafficking in drugs. He has entered not guilty pleas to those charges and has twice refused a plea agreement in the case where he would serve seven years in prison. If convicted as charged he could be sentenced to more than two decades behind bars. Tubbs was apprehended three days before Christmas by U.S. marshals during a traffic stop in Fort Wayne, Ind., and was later extradited back to Miami County where a grand jury indicted him on the charges. Piqua police Detective Jeremy Weber said he was named as the lead investigator to the case because of his past work with investigating narcotics in Piqua. He testified “Little Homey” was a street name Tubbs had and was known for. According to previous testimony, Butts was shot by an individual whom he, and others, knew as “Little Homey.” Weber further testified that Tubbs called him the day after the shooting and denied being involved. A recording of that conversation was played in court and on it Tubbs is heard saying, “I ain’t been there (Piqua) in three weeks. … I wasn’t there. I don’t know what happened. You ain’t telling me (expletive deleted).” The call was terminated after Tubbs apparently hung up on the detective. “All of the evidence I looked at kept coming back to Aaron Tubbs,” Weber said. Also testifying was Kara McConnell, who is the girlfriend of the shooting victim. She became emotional as soon as she sat in the wit-

Wayne, Ind. ness stand. She later identified Tubbs as the man she said stopped by the apartment she and Butts shared shortly before the planned drug transaction at the city park. Other testimony delivered Wednesday came from an emergency room doctor at Upper Valley Medical Center, a forensic technician at the Miami Valley Regional Crime Lab who examined a shell casing, and a firearm and tool mark expert with the crime lab who said the gun used in the crime was a .45 caliber. Brief testimony also came from Tubbs’ probation officer, a records custodian with Sprint, and a surgeon who operated on Butts at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton. Afterward, the state rested its case at 2:40 p.m. During the defense’s case the first of four witnesses was Darnell BonTempo, a longtime friend of the suspect who testified Tubbs was at his home in Fort Wayne, Ind., playing video games during the time of the shoot-

BonTempo’s girlfriend, stepfather and mother also testified that Tubbs was at their home on the night of the shooting and corroborated Tubbs’ alibi. Judge Christopher Gee disallowed the testimony of two other defense witnesses on the grounds of irrelevancy.

Tubbs’ defense attorney, William Kluge, said from the start of the trial that his client will not be taking the witness stand. Tubbs remains at the Miami County Jail on a $1.1 million bond. Closing arguments are expected to be given today with jury deliberations beginning shortly thereafter.

TV, right-of-way issues discussed BY JOHN BADEN For the Troy Daily News Television and right-of-way issues dominated the discussions of the West Milton Council’s work session on Tuesday night. Tom Beck of WMPA-TV was present at the meeting to discuss an opportunity to merge with Troy Public Broadcasting Channel 5. While Beck likes Troy’s station and its vision, he said that joining it at this point could prove to be costly for West Milton in the long run.

WEST MILTON “We’re a little pea going into a big pot, and if you look at the demographics and the businesses and the money, I do have concerns that we could get lost in the shuffle.” Beck said. If they do merge with Troy in the future, Beck would like WMPA-TV to first rearrange some of the things it does in West Milton by building some ties with the churches, schools and the community. One task Beck would like to complete is put a committee or advisory

board together of community members to strategize the future use of the access station with the end result of promoting the city more and showcasing what it has to offer to the public. “I think that might be a great start,” Beck said. “I think that would be a worthwhile endeavor.” Beck and the council also were interested in recording future council meetings and uploading them online for the public to see. While nothing is set in stone, a live Internet stream of future city council meetings may not be too far off. Ben Herron, the Supervisor of

Streets and Grounds, previously brought up an issue to Municipal Manager Matt Kline, involving two basketball hoops permanently concreted into the right-of-way in town. It was a concern to Herron because snow plows have hit them in the past in slippery conditions. Kline said that he only wanted to “plant a seed” of the issue in the minds of the council members as to whether they should do something in the near future or not. “I love to see kids playing in the street,” Kline said. “I personally don’t have a problem with that.”

DEATHS OF NATIONAL INTEREST • Joseph P. Vaghi Jr. BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Joseph P. Vaghi Jr., a World War II veteran thought to be the last surviving U.S. Navy beachmaster who landed at Normandy on D-Day to direct troops, has died. He was 92. His son, Joe Vaghi III, says Vaghi died Saturday at a retirement home in Bethesda. Vaghi was the youngest of 18 beachmasters who went ashore at Omaha Beach at 7:30 a.m. on June 6, 1944. There he directed landings of Allied troops on the shore amid German gunfire and helped treat and evacuate wounded soldiers. Vaghi was awarded the Bronze Star for his actions at Normandy and wrote about his experience. He later worked as an architect. In 1995, Vaghi accompanied Vice President Al Gore to Europe to mark the 50th anniversary of victory in World War II.

Tomato soup The secret to great grilling a delicious Indirect heat key meal for fall

Lovina Eicher Troy Daily News Guest Columnist fast. Pushing the treadle back and forth takes more effort for her but it almost seems like therapy. She is getting eager to learn how to sew. I told her if I get time today I will help her cut out a dress for herself and she can learn how to sew it. She will have surgery on Sept 10 to have her heel cords lengthened on both feet. I hope and pray it will be a success. She is so limited to what she can do. I bought new shoes for her this week. Finding a pair of shoes that work well for her can be a challenge. We did find out a shoe with a wide heel to it gives her more support where her heel cannot touch the floor. Some shoes work for awhile and then start hurting her feet. We will put everything into God’s hands and see what results the surgery brings. May God bless all you readers for your support and encouragement it helps knowing others care. This week I will share a tomato soup recipe. HOMEMADE TOMATO SOUP 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion 2 tablespoons butter 3 tablespoons flour 2 teaspoons sugar One teaspoon salt One eight teaspoon pepper 2 cups tomato juice 2 cups cold milk Sautee onion in butter. Stir in flour, sugar, salt, and pepper. Cook until smooth and bubbly, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Gradually stir in tomato juice. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute. Stir hot tomato juice mixture gradually into the cold milk. Heat rapidly to serving temperate and serve immediately.

are covered with a whitegray ash, rake half of the briquettes to each side of the charcoal grate, leaving space in the center between them. Place a disposable foil drip pan between the two piles of coals. The drip pan will catch fats and juices as the food cooks. If you want to add some smoky flavor, add soaked wood chips to the grayashed briquettes, then replace the cooking grate. Place the food in the center of the cooking grate directly over the drip pan and proceed with the recipe. The secret to charcoal indirect cooking is to add briquettes to the fire as needed to maintain the cooking temperature (add about 10 briquettes per side every hour or so, or when the temperature inside the grill gets below 250 F). Charcoal briquettes can be added to the fire by dropping additional un-lit briquettes through the opening by the handles on each side of the cooking grate.

It is a nice, sunny Thursday forenoon. So far nights have been cool which make for some nice sleeping weather. It has been getting chilly enough at night that most of our windows were closed and it was still comfortable in the house. Sunday morning our thermometer showed 49 degrees. I wouldn’t be surprised if we had an early frost. With the drought we’ve had, I can’t imagine that our canning jars will be filled like other years. I canned some more dill pickles and made 3 more gallons of freezer pickles. Since we hold church services at our house twice next spring, I want to make sure we have plenty. We made some fresh pickles for sister Emma’s church services. I think my cucumbers have produced the most out of my garden. I have tomatoes but not like other years. I have canned 32 quarts of tomato juice so far and one batch of salsa. Today I have enough tomatoes to make more salsa. I canned 15 pints of Serrano peppers. Emma gave me the peppers because I was unable to get the Serrano plants this year. We do have banana and jalapeno peppers, but I prefer Serrano for canning. We use the banana peppers by taking the seeds out and stuffing them with cream cheese and shredded Colby cheese. Then we wrap bacon around them and use toothpicks to keep the bacon in place. Put them on the grill until the bacon is done. Those go fast around here. I have done the same with jalapenos but they are a lot hotter than the bananas. Saturday, Elizabeth’s friend Timothy and Susan’s friend Mose helped Joe and the boys butcher our 14 old laying hens. I cooked the meat off the bones, which I then put into broth. It did not take then men long to do the butchering. I think this is the first time the girls and I got out of butchering chickens. We appreciated their help. Joe and daughter Elizabeth are both working at the factories today. Susan, 16, and Verena, 14, are weeding in the garden. The weeds took over with all the rain we had but we won’t complain. It was a much-needed rain. Benjamin,13, Joseph, 10, and Kevin, 6, are doing some cleaning out in the barn that Joe wanted done. Loretta, 12, and Lovina, 8, are washing the dishes and sweeping the floors. They are all trying to get their jobs before lunch time so they can have free-time this afternoon. Our local apple farms will not have apples or cider to sell this year due to the late frost. There is a shortage of fruit here in Michigan this year. We still haven’t heard if there will be many grapes. The boys dug up our storage potatoes and it is our smallest crop ever. Loretta wanted me to teach her how to use the treadle sewing machine yesterday afternoon. She seems to be catching on

(AP) — If you want to master the art of grilling, you need to accept the idea that more heat isn’t necessarily better heat. In other words, just because your grill is able to crank out 60,000 BTUs doesn’t mean you should let it. That’s because the key to great grilling actually isn’t intense heat, but something far more nuanced called indirect heat. In fact, when I’m grilling, I use indirect heat at least 80 percent of the time. The beauty of indirect heat is that it allows the heat to surround the food from all sides. The result is that the food almost cooks itself. As long as you keep the heat even and consistent, you won’t need to rotate the food for it to cook evenly. A common mistake when cooking with indirect heat is to turn off one side of the grill and just set the food there. But that’s not ideal, as the food closest to the lit burner gets most of the heat. It’s better to have the heat come from both sides, a method that involves creating a ring of heat around the food. Direct heat on a gas grill Turn all the burners on high as you normally would to heat the grill. When ready to cook, reduce the heat by turning all the burners to medium. This should result in a temperature of about 450 F. Place the food directly on clean cooking grates and grill as the recipe directs. Indirect heat on a gas grill Setting a gas grill for indirect cooking is as simple as turning it on and off. Once the grill has been heated with all burners on high, simply turn off the burner or burners in the center of the grill and reduce the other burners to medium or medium-low.

think of any better recipe than beer can chicken to test it out. I guarantee that if you make it once, you’ll make it over and over again. When preparing this recipe, I use a porcelain chicken “sitter� because it stabilizes the chicken as it grills. Some kitchenware companies also sell metal and wire versions. They all serve the same purpose an easy and stable way to prop a whole chicken upright and over a can or container of beer during cooking. You can do it without a sitter, but take care to position the chicken steadily during grilling. Start to finish: 1 1/2 hours Servings: 4 4- to 5-pound whole chicken, patted dry Olive oil 2 tablespoons favorite dry rub for meat (or a blend of kosher salt and ground black pepper), divided 12-ounce can beer Heat the grill to high, then prepare it for cooking over indirect heat (as described above depending on the style of grill you have). Coat the chicken lightly with oil, then season it inside and out with 1 tablespoon of the dry rub. Set aside. Open the beer can and pour out about 1?4 cup of the beer. Make an extra hole in the top of the can using a church key-style can opener. Sprinkle the remaining tablespoon of the dry rub inside the beer can. Place the beer can in the center of the cooking grate (or in the sitter, according to product directions) over indirect medium heat. Sit the chicken on top of the beer can. The chicken will appear to be sitting on the grate. Cover the grill and cook the chicken for 1 to 1 1?2 hours, or until the breast area reaches 165 F and the thighs reach 180 F. Use tongs to carefully transfer the chicken, lifting it off the beer can, to a platter. Let it rest for 10 minutes before carving.

You might be rushing things a bit Dear Annie: My wife and I are in the final stages of a divorce after 25 years of marriage. We have two wonderful teenagers. We both realize that we had a part in the breakdown of the marriage, and we are trying to keep the process as friendly as such things can be. Shortly after my wife moved out, I met a wonderful lady with whom I have much in common. Once the divorce is final, I would like to ask her to marry me. Is that fair? I don't want my soonto-be-ex to think that she meant nothing to me and is being traded in. I also don't want my new ladylove to think I'm simply replacing one wife with another. I don't mind living alone. It actually has been quite peaceful. The biggest worry is the kids. I think my son would understand, but my 13-year-old daughter will be a different story. She tries to put up a good front, but isn't succeeding all that well. I guess the real question is: Should I let my concerns for other people get in the way of my own happiness? How can I help my daughter understand that I am not disrespecting the years of my marriage? I am simply taking the next step in my life. — Ready To Move On Dear Ready: Your main focus right now should be your kids' adjustment, not your personal contentment. You are rushing things. They are teenagers. The parents they love are divorcing, and this is enough trauma in their lives for the moment. Please don't make things more stressful by remarrying so quickly. Let the dust from the divorce settle, and then slowly introduce the new woman into your children's lives and let them get to know her. They may still object, but they will have less reason if they don't feel she is being shoved down their throats. We think all of you could benefit from speaking to a family therapist. Dear Annie: Lately, I have been getting constant putdowns for my "new" appearance. It consists of clothes that I've owned for a while, though nobody seemed to notice until I began applying black eyeliner. My sister has been pestering me for months, complaining that I look Goth. I admit that I've begun using makeup more often, though it's usually only eyeliner or silver eye shadow. A few days ago, I was sent to the school office to receive papers for a special event for high-honor students. While I was waiting, a teacher I didn't know walked in and gave me a nasty look, saying, "Hope that one makes it to the high school." Annie, I have no piercings other than the standard ones in my ears. I don't dye my hair. I am an honor student and love to read. Please tell your readers not to judge a book by its cover. It can really hurt. — Judged Wrong in Jersey Dear Jersey: It is never a good idea to judge based on appearances. But, honey, if simply wearing eyeliner is making people look askance, you might ask whether perhaps you are wearing a bit too much. And if a Goth look is what you are going for, it makes no sense to be surprised by the reaction. Take responsibility for your choices. Dear Annie: Like "Single Too Long," I am 55, divorced with grown children and can't find a long-term relationship. The difference is, I'm female. I have tried dating sites and church groups (full of women). I did meet men when I briefly worked at Home Depot, but I had to quit. You told him to go where the women are, but where are the men? — Looking for a Relationship, Too Dear Looking: In bookstores, grocery stores, hardware stores and laundromats.

Tips will help you enhance, not overwhelm Dear Readers: Many of us have a favorite fragrance to wear, and perfume can be a lovely addition, but here are some do’s and don’ts so that you will not overwhelm others: • To “build” your signature scent, apply your shower gel or lotion while your skin is damp. Follow this with your fragrance: perfume, eau de parfum, eau de toilette, eau de cologne. • If you think scented lotion and perfume are too much together, try this: With a dollop of body creme in your hand, spray a touch of perfume onto the lotion and mix. If it’s too strong, you’ll know before you leave home! • Fragrances should be

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Friday, Aug. 31, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Today’s Full Moon is emotional. Be careful about making promises you can’t keep, especially at work. Think before you speak. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) When it comes to romantic involvements or anything having to do with sports, show business or dealing with children, go gently. Today’s Full Moon could confuse your good judgment. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might feel torn between your responsibilities to home and family versus your responsibilities to career and job. This is classic for today’s Full Moon. Do as little as possible. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Today is such an emotional Full Moon, it could affect you so greatly that you have an accident. Naturally, this doesn’t have to happen. It’s all up to you to maintain a calm mind. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Avoid conflict about money and possessions today. People will go overboard because of today’s Full Moon. Stay out of things for your own sake. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your only recourse today is to be patient with partners and close friends. This is the only day all year when the Full Moon is directly opposite you. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Don’t make a big deal about problems at work today. Others might be emotional, but you can be the peacemaker or the bridge that is needed to restore sanity. (It’s what you do.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Parents should be patient with children today. Everyone feels the energy of the Full Moon, because it makes people too emotional. Be kind and tolerant. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Avoid domestic squabbles today, because they won’t solve anything. It will just be words and noise. Instead, relax with others over a cup of coffee. Be friendly. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Avoid hasty words and impulsive actions today, which might burst out. This is just Full Moon energy. Think before you speak or do anything. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Don’t be rash with your possessions, and think twice before you spend your hard-earned money today. Impulses, especially those having to do with cash flow, are confusing right now. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Today’s Full Moon is in your sign, lined up with your ruler, Neptune. This is like you have Vaseline on your lens obscuring your clear view. Don’t react to situations around you. YOU BORN TODAY Although modest, you are heroic to others. You’re not afraid of public scrutiny and eagerly involve yourself in the world around you. You’re an amateur psychologist; you know what makes others tick. (You loathe pretension and hypocrisy.) You are always charming and attractive. Good news! Your year ahead could be one of the most powerful years of your life.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Thursday, Aug. 30, the 243rd day of 2012. There are 123 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 30, 1862, Confederate forces won victories against the Union at the Second Battle of Bull Run in Manassas, Va., and the Battle of Richmond in Kentucky. On this date: • In 1797, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, creator of “Frankenstein,â€? was born in London. • In 1905, Ty Cobb made his major-league debut as a player for the Detroit Tigers, hitting a double

in his first at-bat in a game against the New York Highlanders. (The Tigers won, 5-3.) • In 1963, the “Hot Lineâ€? communications link between Washington and Moscow went into operation. • In 1967, the Senate confirmed the appointment of Thurgood Marshall as the first black justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. • In 1983, Guion S. Bluford Jr. became the first black American astronaut to travel in space as he blasted off aboard the Challenger.

• In 1997, Americans received word of the car crash in Paris that claimed the lives of Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed and their driver, Henri Paul. (Because of the time difference, it was Aug. 31 where the crash occurred.) • Today’s Birthdays: Comedian Lewis Black is 64. Actress Michael Michele is 46. Actress Cameron Diaz is 40. Rock musician Leon Caffrey (Space) is 39. TV personality Lisa Ling is 39. Rock singer-musician Aaron Barrett (Reel Big Fish) is 38. Tennis player Andy Roddick is 30.

200 US Marines join anti-drug effort in Guatemala GUATEMALA CITY (AP) — A team of 200 U.S. Marines began patrolling Guatemala’s western coast this week in an unprecedented operation to beat drug traffickers in the Central America region, a U.S. military spokesman said Wednesday. The Marines are deployed as part of Operation Martillo,

a broader effort started last Jan. 15 to stop drug trafficking along the Central American coast. Focused exclusively on drug dealers in airplanes or boats, the U.S.-led operation involves troops or law enforcement agents from Belize, Britain, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, France, Guatemala, Honduras, the

Netherlands, Nicaragua, Panama and Spain. “This is the first Marine deployment that directly supports countering transnational crime in this area, and it’s certainly the largest footprint we’ve had in that area in quite some time,� said Marine Staff Sgt. Earnest Barnes at the U.S. Southern Command in Miami.

up� to begin active operations, he said. This week the Marines have been patrolling waterways and the coastline, looking for fast power boats and self-propelled “narco-submarines� used to smuggle drugs along Central America’s Pacific Coast. U.S. officials say the “drug subs� can carry up to 11 tons of illegal cargo up to 5,000 miles. Col. Erick Escobedo, spokesman for Guatemalan Military Forces and Defense Ministry, said that so far the Marines have brought about the seizure of one smallengine aircraft and a car, but made no arrests. He said he expected the Marines to in Guatemala for about two months. If the Marines find suspected boats, Barnes said, they will contact their Guatemalan counterparts in a special operations unit from the Guatemalan navy that will move in for the bust.

not go along on arrest missions, but they do have the right to defend themselves if fired on. Eighty percent of cocaine smoked, snorted and swallowed in the U.S. passes through Central America, according to the Drug E n f o r c e m e n t Administration. Eight out of every 10 tons of that cocaine are loaded on vessels known as “go fasts,� which are open hulled boats 20 to 50 feet long with as many as four engines, according to the Defense Department. In a recent congressional briefing in Washington, Rear Adm. Charles Michel said the boats, carrying anywhere from 300 kilograms to 3.5 metric tons of cocaine, typically leave Colombia and follow the western Caribbean coastline of Central America to make landfall, principally in Honduras. In the Pacific, the same type of vessels will leave Colombia or Ecuador and travel to Guatemala, Panama, Costa Rica or Mexico, Michel said. “We fight a highly mobile, disciplined and well-funded adversary that threatens democratic governments, terrorizes populations, impedes economic development and creates regional instability,� he said, noting that authorities are able to stop only one out of every four suspected traffickers they spot.

It was 50 years ago when the U.S. military last sent any significant aid and equipment into Guatemala, establishing a base to support counter-insurgency efforts during a guerrilla uprising. That movement led to 36 years of war that left 200,000 dead, mostly indigent Maya farmers. The U.S. pulled out in 1978. Guatemalan authorities say they signed a treaty allowing the U.S. military to conduct the operations on July 16. Less than a month later an Air Force C-5 transport plane flew into Guatemala City from North Carolina loaded with the Marines and four UH-1 “Huey� helicopters. After two weeks of setting up camp, establishing computer connections and training at the Guatemalan air base at Retalhuleu, the Marines ran through rehearsal exercises, Barnes said.

Troy’s Ivy Smith hits a return shot on Wednesday.

TIPP CITY — They say defense wins games. If that’s the case, the Tippecanoe boys soccer team has got the right formula. Tippecanoe rolled to a 2-0 start on the season, beating Greenon 2-0 on Wednesday — its second shutout in as many games.

MIAMI COUNTY Darius Appora started the game off with a goal 25 minutes into the first half, coming on an assist by Kevin Ryan. The next Tipp goal came on a penalty kick by Zach Berning 30 minutes into the second half. “So far, it’s been a pretty good start,” Tippecanoe boys Scott Downing said. “I’m happy with it. The defense has been playing well. We’ve got two shutouts in two games. “Out of all the preseason games and regular season, I think this was the best our midfield has played.” The Red Devils are back in action next Wednesday, traveling to take on Northwestern.

Heisey’s 2 HR carry Cincy to 6-2 victory PHOENIX (AP) — Struggling through the first six innings, the Cincinnati Reds finally broke through to get a milestone win. Chris Heisey hit two of Cincinnati’s four home runs, including the tying tworun shot in the seventh inning, and the Reds went on to a 6-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday. The win was Cincinnati’s 80th in their 132nd game of the season, the fastest a Reds team has reached the mark since 1976, when the Big Red Machine got there in 125 games. Mat Latos (11-4) pitched seven innings, allowing two runs on five hits with seven strikeouts and three walks for the win. He also had two hits. “We struck in a hurry. Had some guys hit some long balls … and Latos pitched great,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “Other than that balk in the first inning, he pitched outstanding. And he hit well,

too.” Dioner Navarro’s solo shot two batters after Heisey’s first blast put Cincinnati ahead, Brandon Phillips added a two-run homer in the eighth and Heisey capped the scoring two outs later to help the Reds complete the three-game sweep. “It feels good to win,” Phillips said, adding that his home run off the batter’s eye in center field was hit with all the power he could generate. “When I hit it, I was like ‘Please get up, please get up,’ but I didn’t think it was going to be like that,” Phillips said. “I did some pushups (Tuesday) night and I was like ‘Maybe pushups really work.’” Latos believes he came out with a little too much adrenalin to start the game, AP PHOTO when he gave up two hits, walked two Cincinnati Reds’ Chris Heisey celebrates his two-

NFL to use replacement officials in week one NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL will open the regular season next week with replacement officials and said it was prepared to use them “as much ‌ as necessaryâ€? afterward. Replacements will be on field beginning the Wednesday night when the Dallas Cowboys visit the New York Giants in the season opener, league executive Ray Anderson told the 32 teams in a memo. Negotiations are at a standstill between the

NFL and the officials’ union. The NFL Referees Association was locked out in early June and talks on a new collective bargaining agreement have gone nowhere. Replacements have been used throughout the preseason, with mixed results. In 2001, the NFL used replacements for the first week of the regular season before a contract was finalized. The speed of the game and the amount of

time starters are on the field increase exponentially for real games, making the replacements’ task more challenging. Anderson, the NFL’s executive vice president of football operations, told the clubs in a memo Wednesday that the replacements will work “as much of the regular season as necessary,� adding that training with each crew will continue. The NFL noted it has expanded the use of

Colts safety Antoine Bethea said there is a feel-

instant replay as an officiating tool this year to include all scoring plays and turnovers. Officiating supervisors will be on hand to assist the crews on game administration issues. “We are not surprised, based on Ray Anderson’s statements ‌ that the NFL was not going to reach out to us,â€? NFLRA spokesman Michael Arnold said. “However, this is consistent with the NFL’s negotiating strategy which

He also told the teams there is a substantial difference on operational issues.

NEW YORK (AP) — Kim Clijsters’ singles career ended where she wanted it to, just not the way she hoped. The four-time Grand Slam champion lost 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5) to 18-year-old Laura Robson of Britain in the second round of the U.S. Open on Wednesday, and will head into retirement after she finishes playing in doubles at Flushing Meadows. Clijsters walked away from the sport once before, in May 2007, then returned after a 2 1/2-year hiatus. But now 29 and a mother, the Belgian insisted this season that she means it this time, and decided the U.S. Open and its hard courts that she conquered on the way to three championships would be her final tournament. “It’s the place that has inspired me so much to do well and to do great things. It’s hard to explain sometimes why,� Clijsters said in an on-court interview, her face flushed and her eyes welling with tears. “This completely feels like the perfect place to retire,� Clijsters told the spectators at Arthur Ashe Stadium, many of whom rose to shower her with a standing ovation. “I just wish it wasn’t today.� The loss Wednesday ended Clijsters’ 22-match winning streak in New York, encompassing titles in 2005, 2009 and 2010, plus Monday’s first-round victory. She missed the hardcourt major in 2004, 200608 and last year, thanks to a combination of injuries and the time she took off while starting a family. Her daughter, Jada, was born in February 2008. By August 2009, Clijsters was back on tour; unseeded and unranked, because she only played in two previous tournaments during her comeback, she won that year’s

“We know that we have to continue to win ballgames. As long as we can win the series, we’ve got a good chance of going somewhere,� Latos said. Cincinnati trailed 2-0 until the top of the seventh, shut out on two hits by Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin (5-6).

game, not only as a superb player but as someone who by all accounts is universally liked by fans, tennis officials and even opponents. When the contest ended with Clijsters sailing a backhand return long, allowing Robson to convert her third match point, they met at the net. Clijsters began to extend her arm for the customary handshake, and Robson pulled her in for a hug. “I want to thank Kim,� Robson told the crowd moments later, “for being such a great role model to me for so many years.�

With two out, Navarro roped his home run inside the left-field foul pole to give the Reds the lead. In the eighth, Phillips and Heisey went deep off reliever Matt Albers. Latos got his first win since Aug. 3 against Pittsburgh and his first at Arizona since August 2010. The balk in the first allowed Aaron Hill to score from third base with two out to give the Diamondbacks a 1-0 lead. Jake Elmore’s two-out RBI

double in the fourth put Arizona up 2-0, but Latos retire 10 of the next 12 batters he faced. The Diamondbacks lost their sixth straight and eight of 10 on their homestand to drop three games below .500 for the first time since July 20. Corbin allowed three runs and six hits in 6 2-3 innings, striking out eight in his first career start against the Reds. “Not a lot is going right. It’s not a good feeling,â€? Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. “The more you search, the tougher it gets at times.â€?

Expected to be activated on Saturday, he went 0 for 1 with a walk in five innings in his first game for Dayton on Tuesday. ‌ Arizona RHP Josh Collmenter pitched four scoreless innings Tuesday in his third rehab game with the club’s rookie league team.

1 Behind the scenes of Ohio Stadium


1. RECRUITING ROOM Recruits and their families and friends are entertained before and after games in the recruiting room on the east side of Ohio Stadium. Photos and memorabilia of past great Ohio State players and games greet them as they walk in.

Ohio State coaches Alexander Lilley (1890-1891) Jack Ryder (1892-95, 1898) Charles Hickey (1896) David Edwards (1897) John Eckstorm (1899-1901) Perry Hale (1902-1903) E.R. Sweetland (1904-1905) A.E. Herrnstein (1906-1909) Howard Jones (1910) Harry Vaughn (1911) John Richards (1912) John Wilce (1913-1928) Sam Willaman (1929-1933) Francis Schmidt (1934-1940) Paul Brown (1941-1943) Carroll Widdoes (1944-1945) Paul Bixler (1946) Wes Fesler (1947-1950) Woody Hayes (1951-1978) Earle Bruce (1979-1987) John Cooper (1988-2000) Jim Tressel (2001-2010) Luke Fickell (2011) Urban Meyer (2012-)

2. BAND ROOM Possibly the most famous marching band in college football prepares for its game-day performances in the band room at Ohio Stadium. Ohio State’s 192-person band is highly competitive with alternates able to challenge someone who holds a position every week. The band, which is all brass and percussion, was all male until 1973.


3. GENE SMITH’S BOX Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith has a nice view from his private box high above the stadium on game days.



4. STAINED GLASS WINDOWS Ohio Stadium’s three stained glass windows were installed in 2001. They were designed by Lima Central Catholic graduate Tom Cullen, who has a studio in Dublin. Another LCC graduate, Shawn Bourk, did the frames and metal work for the windows.

5. VICTORY BELL WALL Ringing the victory bell in the southeast tower of the stadium has been a tradition since 1954. If you get to do that, you want to leave a reminder you were there, like these past bell ringers did.

By JIM NAVEAU 419-993-2087


The Buckeyes averaged 32,500 fans in their five home games in 1922, with almost half of that season’s attendance coming in the Michigan game when more than 70,000 packed into the stadium. Discussions about building a new stadium began almost a decade before Ohio Stadium opened in 1922 when Ohio State realized the increasing popularity of Buckeyes football had made its old stadium, Ohio Field (14,000 capacity), too small. A fund-raising campaign brought in more than $1 milllion of the nearly $1.5 million required

to build the horseshoeshaped stadium, designed by architect Howard Dwight Smith, an OSU graduate who would later design St. John Arena. Ohio Stadium’s original capacity was 66,210. Listed capacity topped 80,000 in 1960, went over 90,000 in 1991 and now is 103,329.
