Festival returning to levee Downtown location too costly BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor After a one-year hiatus, the Troy Strawberry Festival will return to its original home in 2013. Friday, Troy Strawberry

TROY Festival manager Heather Dorsten announced Troy’s annual festival will return to the levee along the Great Miami River — where it has been held every year since its inception in 1977, with

the exception of the 2012 festival. Construction work on the Adams Street Bridge forced festival organizers to move the Strawberry Festival to downtown Troy this year. Dorsten said the 2012 festival received largely favorable reviews from those who attended, but in

Health care wastes $750B

United Way Campaign co-chairman Greg Taylor, left, along with Troy United Way’s executive director Richard Bender, center, and Chairman Bill Barney discuss the community support given to the United Way Friday at Prouty Plaza.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. health care system squanders $750 billion a year — roughly 30 cents of every medical dollar through unneeded care, byzantine paperwork, fraud and other waste, the influential Institute of Medicine said Thursday in a report that ties directly into the presidential campaign. See Page 9.

‘Troy is a giving place’


Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Troy United Way kicked off its annual campaign Friday morning on Prouty Plaza, setting the bar higher than ever before with its goal of $790,000 — $10,000 more than last year’s mark. “This is the largest goal we’ve ever set,” said Troy United Way’s executive director Richard Bender.

the end, the financial considerations of holding the festival downtown as opposed to holding it on the levee outweighed any other factors. She said Friday’s decision was the culmination of months of discussions between festival organizers, the Miami County Commission, the City of Troy and other organizations.

TROY Bender also said the organization, with its 25 partner agencies, also allocated 5 percent more funds to go back out to the community through those agencies and through a non-profit organization’s Impact grants. Bender said the Troy United Way’s relationship with Impact grants doled out funds for the Kids Read Now program, Troy-Miami County Library and other organizations, which

WASHINGTON (AP) — American employers cut back sharply on hiring last month, crushing hopes that the job market was improving and putting more pressure on the Federal Reserve to give the sluggish economy another jolt. The Labor Department said Friday that employers added just 96,000 jobs in August, down from 141,000 in July and too few to keep up with population growth. The unemployment rate fell to 8.1 percent from 8.3 percent, but only because many people gave up looking for work, so they were no longer counted as unemployed. The latest numbers were “downright dismal,” TD Economics senior economist James Marple said in a description echoed by many others. The economy remains hobbled in the aftermath of the deepest recession since the 1930s and simply isn’t expanding fast enough to spark more hiring. Consumers, whose spending accounts for more than two-thirds of economic activity, have been whittling down debts and spending cautiously. The government reported last week that economic growth clocked a disappointing 1.7 percent annual pace in the April-June quarter. The economy is expected to grow at an annual rate of around 2 percent for the rest of the year, consistent with only 90,000 new jobs a month.

nesses were happy when it was downtown, some were not. “The No. 1 thing behind our decision to move back to the levee was with the infrastructure in place, it wasn’t easy, from a financial standpoint, to hold the festival downtown. We needed extra security downtown. We didn’t have the electric we needed downtown, so we had to bring in generators, which cost extra. We just did a $400,000 upgrade to the electric on the levee seven years ago before I got here, so the levee really meets

“It’s kind of funny, but we were joking that if it had been horrible downtown, everyone would have loved it if we moved it back to the levee,” Dorsten said. “But that wasn’t the case. It went really well downtown, so we understand there are going to be some people who are glad it is going back to the levee and some people who will wish it would have stayed downtown. We had mixed feelings from the businesses downtown — some busi-

Much of the success of the 2012 festival was due to over three years of planning,” she said. “There many positive were

aspects of the downtown location, but the city, the county and the Strawberry Festival all incurred significantly increased costs in holding the event downtown. The downtown location also required the closing of the county courthouse and placed additional burdens on the operations and staff of the city. There were many challenges posed by the closing of the Adams Street Bridge, but everyone worked together to make the event an outstanding success.” Dorsten said the 2013

Strawberry Festival will be held on the levee June 1-2, 2013. In addition, the Friday night events preceding the festival will return to the downtown location. At the 2012 festival, the Friday night events were held on the levee and in the Hobart Arena parking lot. Additionally, Dorsten said, the 2013 Troy Strawberry Festival will see the return of the Strawberry Festival Parade, which had to be canceled in 2012. “Everything will return to normal,” Dorsten said.

The disappointing numbers are a blow to President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign. Unemployment is down from a peak of 10 percent in October 2009, but no incumbent president since Franklin D. Roosevelt has faced re-election with unemployment higher than 7.8 percent. Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney declared that “the weak jobs report is devastating news for American workers and American families … a harsh indictment of the president’s handling of the economy.” Obama said August’s hiring was “not good enough” and it’s “a long tough journey” to recover from the recession that officially ended more than three years ago. Despite the bad report, stock prices rose, most likely on expectations the Fed will act next week. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 14.64 points to 13,306.64. The Standard & Poor’s 500 rose 5.80 to 1,437.92. The job market got off to a strong start this year. Employers added an average 226,000 jobs a month from January through

Taylor said the community of Troy has supported the United Way above and beyond time and time again. “Troy is such a wonderful, giving place and we’ve received unbelievable support throughout the years for each campaign,” Taylor said. More than 14,000 envelopes for donations from individuals hit the Troy mailboxes Friday morning for the community to support agencies within the city limits. “It’s raised here and it stays here,” Bender said, noting only 1 percent of the United Way funds from Troy goes to the national headquarters of the global organization. Taylor also said the Ford Motor Co., along with Troy Ford, will offer a unique way to “drive up” campaign contributions.

The time and location for the test drives have yet to be determined, but Taylor said it is a great way to utilize matching funds from the Ford Motor Co. “All we need is 300 people to come out, test drive a Ford and we’ll add those funds to our campaign — it’s a win-win for everyone,” he said.

For the Troy Daily News CASSTOWN — Three Miami East FFA members are taking advantage of the opportunity to share their hard work and talents with Troy residents from 9 a.m. to noon each Saturday on Cherry Street at the Troy Farmers Market, coordinated by Main Street Troy. Senior Sarah Pyers is selling her chrysanthemum flowers in a variety of colors. “The flowers are just starting to bloom so my customers will experience the full color,� Pyers said. She purchased small plants, called plugs, at the beginning of the summer and potted them in individual pots. Through plenty of water, fertilizer and timely pruning, she has large and bloom-full plants. “I don’t have space at my house and this is a project that I can do in my backyard,� she said. Pyers plans to apply for the State FFA Degree and complete a state proficiency award application. Sophomore Chris Teaford planted more than 80 tomato plants in his family’s garden with the plans to sell his produce to family and friends. “I enjoy the chance to meet new customers. I have a lot of tomatoes and don’t want them to go to waste,� Teaford said. Teaford has a variety of tomato varieties and is accepting cash donations for his harvest. “I researched methods on how to raise tomatoes and used a fence and string method to help stake up my tomatoes so I may reduce spoilage and allow all the fruit to ripen on the vein,� he said. Teaford will apply for a state FFA proficiency award in the future.


Miami East High School and FFA member Sarah Pyers sells her chrysanthemum flowers in a variety of colors at the weekly farmers market in downtown Troy. Lauren Williams is a junior and experienced farmerss market participant. Known as the “Basil Girl� because of her baggies of fresh basil she offers, she also has expanded her products to include soy-based lip balm, barbecue sauce and buckeye necklaces. “I love farmers markets. I love seeing locally-grown, farmer-owned businesses offering their product to local residents,� Williams said. Williams enjoyed farmer markets so much that she is now the intern for the Troy Farmer’s Market. “I encourage everyone to come see what we FFA members and all the vendors have to offer,� she said. Williams won the 2012 Ohio FFA Vegetable proficiency award. She plans to

apply again in the future. Each FFA member is required to have a Supervised Agricultural Experience program as continued education beyond their agriculture classes at Miami East High School. The SAE allows FFA members to learn through handson experiences and financially gain from their entrepreneurship involvement. Members are encouraged to be engaged and involved in the agriculture industry throughout and beyond their years in high school. It is the mission of the Downtown Troy Farmers Market to enhance and promote local farmers and businesses in order to encourage local buying of their products. The weekly farmers market will continue through Sept. 15.

Question: Should the government regulate school lunches?

Watch for final poll results in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News.

Watch for a new poll question in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News.


Tom Dunn Troy Daily News Guest Columnist

Don’t buy all the hype coming from Columbus A couple of weeks ago, the Troy Daily News ran an Associated Press article about the new teacher evaluation law in Ohio. I read the article, which I assume originated in Columbus, with both interest and disgust; interest because I am amazed at how the propaganda machine in our state capital can make even the worst ideas seem worthy of respect; disgust because I knew how much fiction the article contained. First of all, the law was created under the false notion that our public schools are overrun by poor teachers. No, they aren’t; certainly not in Miami County, anyway. If it’s true elsewhere, then I suggest the focus be placed there. Go fix the problems where they exist, but creating another bureaucratic nightmare to fix a problem that isn’t real makes no sense. Yet, that’s exactly what this law does. Second, if you believe the lawmakers who support this new system, this evaluation process will fix all that ails public education, because good teachers will become phenomenal; the average will become good; and the poor will finally be ushered out of the door. In fact, don't be surprised that if sometime in the near future we are told this new system could end As I world hunger (it won’t). The truth is, this law See It is just another in a long line of time and moneywasting mandates that do nothing to improve edu■ The Troy Daily News cation. welcomes Here’s all you need to know about this marcolumns from velous, well-conceived new system (wink, wink): our readers.

The look on her face was priceless. "What?" she said. He repeated, "The test data you are telling us we have to use to evaluate our staffs isn't even sent to us by the state until well after evaluations have to be completed, so how, exactly, are we supposed to do this?" She was obviously startled by this revelation because she asked, "Why, with all the testimony we have heard before the Education Committee, is this the first time I'm hearing this?" The superintendent said he had no idea why, but that didn't change the fact that we didn't have access to the very data we were supposed to use to hold teachers "accountable." So, a member of the EDUCATION COMMITTEE, the members of which would hopefully be the most informed members of that legislative body, didn’t even understand this most basic flaw in their plan. And, that says it all. Nowhere in all the press releases being distributed out of Columbus will you ever hear that this new mandate can't possibly be implemented well because it is so poorly conceived; nowhere will you be told that the test data that is to be used isn't available within the timelines of the law; nowhere will the incredible waste of resources and tax dollars be highlighted; and nowhere will lawmakers admit that they themselves have created the continuing contract (aka tenure) law that protects bad teachers. To the contrary, all you will read is how wonderful it is and how it will save the day. No it isn't. No it won't. Don’t buy the hype.


Obama wants us to be like Europe To the Editor: Before you vote for Obama, please read the book “Fool Me Twice” — it is very true that he plans for us to live like Europe. It’s also true true that he’s helping to push gas prices to $10 per gallon, forcing us to either walk, ride bikes or buy electric cars. He wants to unionize the government completely and ALL businesses or the government controls them. Then, to top things off, he’s going to make all businesses do “work share.” This means if you need 40 hours a week, you will no longer get it. Why? Because in “work share programs,” they

only get 32 hours weekly — all companies will be forced to do this and have to add more employees to make up for the other hours. And NO, you will not get a choice. Just as in Europe. And for anyone who has an elderly family member over 75 with health issues, a review board will decide if this government insurance being spent on them is worth spending — or if they have too many issues and it’s too much money for their age. ALL persons who need walkers, wheelchairs, breathing machines or medical devices will pay extra for these. The ones who need breathing machines will have to pay for them — that’s about $2,000. That’s an expense for seniors they cannot afford. I know —

my mom is one of those seniors who’ll have to pay for this. In Europe, many families live in just one home — they can’t afford it otherwise. Gas is $10 there; the cost of living is outrageous. This is America. We live here for freedom to eat, work, breathe, etc. No government should be able to dictate our lives — not now, not ever! This book will make me never vote for a Democrat, ever. Please, I urge you to have the courage to read this book. There’s so much that will shock you and disturb you while you read it. Obama is supposed to be an American. It makes me question that. — Pamela Cole Troy

Things they don’t teach in high school, but should I’ll start this column by admitting that it’s been nearly 10 years since I graduated from high school. In fact, my class of 700 some students will gather next summer to celebrate our 10-year reunion. Side note, I haven’t decided if I’m going yet or not. So I’m not completely with the times when it comes to what they’re teaching in high school right now, but if it doesn’t include my list of five things then I have a really bad feeling that the next generation of adults is in some serious trouble. I remember learning algebra and physics; I also remember wondering when on earth I’d actually use those things in real life, turns out if you major in English in college, you don’t, ever. I think we also learned about the branches of government somewhere in there, with a lot of Civil War stuff thrown in there. I don’t think we ever made it past World War II, however, so if anything serious happened in America between the years of 1945 and say, 1990, I have no idea what they were. Unfortunately, however, there are a lot of things I’ve had to learn since graduation that would

Amanda Stewart Troy Daily News Columnist have been really, really awesome to have understood before facing them in my adult life. For starters, can we please offer a realistic class on what the heck happens to all that money you owe college once you (hopefully) graduate — school loans — that’s right, that’s what they’re called. I remember sitting through some special “college nights” at my high school where we’d walk around and learn about everything college had to offer, but not one of those nights included a rundown on all the interest I’d owe when it came to those fun school loans and that mommy and daddy wouldn’t be paying for them. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t expect my parents to pay off my

student loans, however, it seems like a lot of those special nights that actually covered what the heck student loans are, were more tailored to my parents than myself. Which would be fine … if I wanted to live off of them for the rest of my adult life. And while we’re on the topic of student loans, I really think they need to start prepping you on the whole tax filing situation when you’re in high school. Granted, I know most kids probably won’t pay attention, but at least a few will have some semblance of what we’re supposed to do every year when we get those W-2 forms, or W-654 forms, or you know, whatever they are. At the very least this needs to be a class required in college, we can just call it “becoming an adult 101” or something. And for Pete’s sake, can we teach today’s youth that they are under no circumstances “owed” a job by anyone. I don’t care if you have four PhDs from Harvard, this in no way means you’re guaranteed a spot in the workforce. Sure, it probably sets you up a little bit stronger than the poor kid who’s worked at McDonalds for 15 years, but you have to go out

there and actually earn it for yourself. Welcome to adulthood kids, where things don’t always fall in your lap. But probably the most important thing we should be teaching today’s high school students, is that no matter how much they think they know it all, they don’t, at all. And it’s not a bad thing. They’re going to do an awful lot of changing between every threefive years, so they might as well get used to the idea now that they don’t know it all and just when they think they do, something will change and they’ll be clueless again. Welcome to life after graduation folks, where you can only put school loans off for so long, you may or may not be living on the streets if you marry someone with terrible credit and even when you’re almost 30, you’re still going to feel absolutely lost from time to time. The good news is, unless you become an engineer, rocket scientist or high school math teacher, you probably won’t ever use algebra again.

Fundraisers planned for ailing Piqua girl BY WILL E SANDERS Ohio Community Media Two upcoming fundraisers planned for an ailing 9year-old Piqua girl with a rare form of cancer are planned this month, with the first one taking place Sunday and a second on Sept. 30. Mickayla Nelson, a student at Favorite Hill School, was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, which is a rare cancer of the bone and tissue that only affects 2 percent of children in the country. Nelson has been receiving treatment for her illness at the James Cancer Hospital at The Ohio State University in Columbus and the fund-raisers are being held in order to support her family with both medical and travel expenses, said Stephanie Gunter, a Piqua attorney assisting with both events. “This is an innocent 9year-old girl who unfortunately has come down with a cancer that only affects 2 percent of children in the United States,” she said. “We would like to help this local Piqua girl who never asked for this. It’s just so sad.” A car wash and a quarter auction are planned for this month. The car wash will be from 1-4 p.m. Sunday at O’Reilly Auto Parts, 631 W. Water St., Piqua. All proceeds will go to help the Nelson family with medical and travel expenses. Meanwhile, the Prayers for Mickayla Quarter Auction is scheduled at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 30, at the

PIQUA Covington Eagles, 715 E. Broadway Ave., Covington. Gunter said so far area businesses and the community has been very supportive of the cause. “Our main concern is the expense of traveling from home and back and forth to Columbus,” Gunter said. “It’s just a sad situation. It is a family who doesn’t have much, but everybody has been really supportive.” Gunter described Mickayla as a “very cheerful, very nice and outgoing girl”

and said she only just recently began receiving her treatments at the medical facility this week. “She is taking it all in stride,” Gunter said. “She knows what it is and what she has to do to get better. She has a great attitude about it.” Local businesses who would like to make a donation for the quarter auction may contact Jamie Buchanan at (937) 778-1192 or through the Facebook page titled, “Prayers for Mickayla Quarter Auction,” which also is where more information on the events can be found.

underneath the parking lot and into the suburb’s storm sewer. He was then shifted into pipes that grew increasingly larger, Turner said. “Now the same amount of water is flowing through there with a little bit bigger of an opening, so his head actually bobs above water a couple times.” The pipes sent Jeffrey under four lanes of traffic, placing him across the street from where he was riding his bike. At some point, the water became waist-deep, Turner said. “He’s able to grab ahold of something and stop and wedge himself in there,” Turner said. “But he’s traveled about 1,500 feet from where he initially started.”

Ohio records 60 West Nile virus cases in humans COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s confirmed number of West Nile virus cases has increased to 60, more than double the human cases documented just three weeks ago, state health officials said. Two people a 76-year-old man in southern Ohio’s Hamilton County and an 87-year-old man in Cuyahoga County in northeast Ohio have died in what officials are calling one of the worst summers for the mosquito-borne virus in the state and across the nation, The Columbus Dispatch reported Friday. Statewide, 47 people have been hospitalized, with symptoms that began between July 10 and Aug. 28. Nationwide, 1,993 cases have been reported to federal health officials, an increase of 403 in a week, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s weekly update. Deaths from the disease this year have hit 87, up from 66 reported a week earlier. One in five people who become infected with the virus will develop West Nile fever, according to the CDC. Symptoms include fever, headache, tiredness and body aches. As of Friday, 36 of Ohio’s 88 counties had confirmed West Nile cases in humans,

mosquitoes or horses, Tessie Pollock, a spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Health, said Friday. Cuyahoga County had reported the most human cases of any county, with 21, Pollock said. Drought and heat in Ohio this year increased the prevalence of the West Nile-carrying Culex mosquito, Pollock said. The mosquito prefers to breed in organically rich water sources, such as water in the process of evaporating from ditches and catch basins where leaves and other matter accumulate. “We knew early on that this was going to be a bad year,” she said. Health officials recommend that people use insect repellent or wear long sleeves and pants while outdoors, especially at dusk and dawn. They also advise eliminating mosquito breeding sites such as water-holding containers and other standing water. The decision on whether to spray for mosquitoes is left up to local areas, and Columbus Public Health in central Ohio’s Franklin County where four human cases have been reported increased its spraying to six days this week. The agency typically has sprayed three or four days

a week, spokesman Jose Rodriguez said. The agency focuses on areas where mosquitoes caught in traps have tested positive for the virus. Columbus has found 110 pools of mosquitoes testing positive for West Nile virus this year, compared with 12 pools of positive mosquitoes in Columbus and nearby Worthington last year, said Luke Jacobs, a section chief with the city’s division of environmental health. Hamilton County Public Health in Cincinnati is not spraying, but monitors mosquito traps daily throughout the county, which has reported five human cases. “When we catch a positive pool, we are there immediately,” agency spokesman Mike Samet said. He said the department also educates the public on prevention. John McLeod, director of environmental public health services for the Cuyahoga County Board of Health, says costly spraying is “usually a last resort.” That agency works to educate the public, monitors traps and treats storm water catch basins and ditches with a substance to prevent mosquito larvae from developing into adults, McLeod said.

created by the rising creek, which flows near a strip mall parking lot in Parma. He fell into the overflowing water just off the edge of the parking lot and was forced into a drain pipe roughly 2 feet in diameter, authorities said. “The water was moving so quickly it sucked him into the drain,” said Doug Turner, a spokesman for the Parma Fire Department. “It sucked him in and pulled him probably 100 yards, full of water, where he couldn’t take his breath.” The pipe carried Jeffrey

Teen travels through sewer COLUMBUS (AP) — An overflowing creek in a Cleveland suburb sent a 14year-old boy on the ride of his life this week. Jeffrey LaPorta traveled more than a quarter of a mile through multiple storm sewer pipes, at times completely submerged water, before finding enough breathing room to await rescue. He was eventually pulled out of the sewer in less than an hour, with only scrapes and bruises. The teen was riding his bike with a friend on Tuesday through puddles

PIQUA — Roberta L. Whitehead, 50, of Piqua, died at 3:28 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2012, at Wayne Hospital of Greenville.

NUEVA JERUSALEN, Mexico (AP) — Sprouting out of the corn fields of western Mexico rises a hill crowned with two arches and four towers, marking the gates of an improvised “holy land” that farmers built brick by brick over nearly four decades. The sprawling complex, they believed, would be the only place saved in the coming apocalypse: Nueva Jerusalen, or “New Jerusalem.” A cult has since sprung up around the detailed instructions that Our Lady of the Rosary supposedly left for followers, including how its estimated 5,000 members should dress and live. No non-religious music, no alcohol or tobacco, no television or radio, no modern dress and, the injunction that has landed them in trouble, no public education. That last rule is at the heart of a confrontation brewing at the complex among the sect’s traditionalists, its more reformist members and the Mexican government. The conflict escalated into a tense standoff this week between the sect and federal and state police. According to traditional-

ists, the government-mandated uniforms, school books and lesson plans, not to mention the computers and televisions now used in many Mexican classrooms, would violate the Virgin Mary’s orders, on her own sacred ground. Organized squadrons of church followers enforced those beliefs in July when they used sledgehammers and pickaxes to tear down at least two school buildings, doused the school furniture and texts in gasoline and set the whole mess on fire. Authorities in the western state of Michoacan have vowed that public, secular education, one of the few common bonds that hold Mexican society together, would not be sacrificed, and they pledged Monday that about 250 children would be back in class in Nueva Jerusalen. That prompted swift reaction from conservative church followers, and what turned out to be a daylong standoff. Federal police commander Miguel Guerrero said he was talking with both sect traditionalists and reformists, to reach some sort of compromise

Charlotte leaders ecstatic about results of DNC CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — For Charlotte, the party’s over. After a year of planning for the Democratic National Convention, delegates, journalists and even protesters have left North Carolina largest city. But city leaders said Friday they were thrilled with the national exposure and hope it pays dividends in the future. Mayor Anthony Foxx said the city had a buzz during the convention. “I’ve never seen anything like it in Charlotte. There were events happening all over featuring some of the brightest minds in public policy and American culture and lots of other topics. The city was just alive in a way that was magnificent,” he said. For most of the week, Charlotte’s Uptown business district was teeming with convention-goers. The city estimated that 35,000 people attended the event, including delegates and journalists. The convention was held at the Time Warner Cable Arena, and city leaders say restaurants were filled at night. Charlotte also saw an influx of protesters some of whom pitched tents and camped in a city park until Friday afternoon. They had predicted that thousands would travel to Charlotte to express their anger at economic policies and other issues they say hurt the poor. But the massive protests never materialized amid a week of rainy weather. The centerpiece was supposed to be the March on Wall Street South. But that demonstration


Charlotte police patrol outside the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. City leaders said Friday they were thrilled with the national exposure and hope it pays dividends in the future. two days before the start of the convention drew 800 people. Organizers had earlier predicted as many as 15,000 would come. Several times, protesters marched along downtown streets. Twenty-five protesters were arrested all but one from out of town during the week, but the demonstration was mostly peaceful. Police Chief Rodney Monroe attributed that to “a tremendous amount of advance planning,” communicating with protesters and not being too aggressive. But police had an overwhelming presence on the streets with bicycles, foot patrols and motorcycles. Foxx said Charlotte had stud-

ied other conventions closely while putting together its own plan. “I think that that due diligence proved very helpful to us. Of course, particularly in the area of security, you can only anticipate so much. There’s always going to be some percentage of things you cannot predict,” he said, adding that officers and staff showed a lot of flexibility. For a year, city leaders and Democratic host committee officials have insisted that Charlotte would reap the benefits of having a convention in its city. They estimated that the event would generate some $200 million in revenue, from the security expenses

to delegate spending to the host committee contracts with local caterers and other businesses. City officials speculated that the convention and the media attention would promote Charlotte’s image as a symbol of the New South a city of 760,000 people in one of the fastest-growing areas in the nation. Charlotte’s business district is home to the headquarters of Bank of America and major operations for Wells Fargo, two of the largest U.S. financial institutions. It’s also the headquarters for Duke Energy, the largest electricity provider in the country. Foxx said they want to use the convention to attract business. “Obviously we want to do everything we can to parlay what the world knows about us into job growth. We certainly want to be able to quantify the economic impact of the convention,” he said. Experts who have studied the economic impact of political conventions and other large events like the Olympics say that while host cities do reap a short-term economic windfall, the loss of local, regular business isn’t always factored in to those figures. “No one really bothers measuring up the number of Bank of America people who aren’t in town working. But they are happy to include all the delegates in town spending money,” said Victor Matheson, an economics professor at College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass., who has studied the effects of large events on cities. Matheson added that even anecdotally, he hasn’t seen much

Eastwood talks about RNC chat with chair LOS ANGELES (AP) — Clint Eastwood said the idea to use an empty seat as a prop at the Republican National Convention was a spur-ofthe-moment decision when someone backstage asked him if he wanted to sit down. In his first interview since he attended the convention to pledge his support for Mitt Romney, Eastwood told the Carmel Pine Cone, a small California weekly newspaper, that his speech was not only unscripted, it was pretty much spontaneous. “There was a stool there, and some fella kept asking me if I wanted to sit down,” Eastwood told the newspaper, which published the article Friday. “When I saw the stool sitting there, it gave me the idea. I’ll just put the stool out there and I’ll talk to Mr. Obama and ask him why he didn’t keep all of the promises he made to everybody.” Eastwood’s peculiar, sometimes rambling conversation with an imaginary President Barack Obama in an empty chair set the blogosphere and

social media ablaze. His appearance was intended to be a ringing endorsement for Romney, but the esteemed 82-year-old actor and director opened himself up to ridicule. said he Eastwood achieved what he set out to do and got across three points. “That not everybody in Hollywood is on the left, that Obama has broken a lot of the promises he made when he took office, and that the people should feel free to get rid of any politician who’s not doing a good job,” Eastwood said. “But I didn’t make up my mind exactly what I was going to say until I said it.” Eastwood’s longtime manager, Leonard told The Hirshan, Associated Press he was not aware of the Pine Cone newspaper article. “You’re telling me something for the first time,” he said. Hirshan stressed that as a manager, he wouldn’t necessarily know about Eastwood’s dealings with the media. The actor has no publicist. While Eastwood said his presentation was “very unorthodox,” that was his intent from the outset and he had plenty of people giving him advice on what to say. “Everybody had advice for me, except the janitor,” Eastwood said. Eastwood said he was told to speak for five minutes but he said it was difficult to gauge time and there weren’t any signals or cues telling him to wrap up. Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, later came backstage to thank him. “They were very enthusiastic, and we were all laughing,” Eastwood said.

evidence that big events like a convention draw businesses seeking to relocate. “Obviously these events put cities in the limelight. But usually what people remember out of this is not necessarily the cities but what goes on at the conventions,” he said. With Charlotte, they also might remember the weather: President Barack Obama was supposed to make his acceptance speech at the outdoor 74,000-seat Bank of America Stadium. Instead, it was moved indoors because of the threat of thunderstorms. Still, people were happy the convention was held in Charlotte. Janet Connors, a waitress at an Uptown restaurant, said business was strong. “Tables were filled and we had a lot of people waiting for tables. And the tips were good. Everybody was in a good mood. It was real festive on the streets,” said Connors, 24, of Charlotte. On Friday, the city streets were unusually quiet. Workers had removed steel barricades that protected buildings. Conventiongoers were either home or on their way. Because of potential traffic issues, parking problems and protesters, many downtown businesses told workers that they could telecommute during the convention. Congress gave the city $50 million for security and the city amassed 3,000 police officers from around North Carolina and other areas in addition to its force of 1,750.

U.S. health care system wastes $750B a year WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. health care system squanders $750 billion a year roughly 30 cents of every medical dollar through unneeded care, byzantine paperwork, fraud and other waste, the influential Institute of Medicine said Thursday in a report that ties directly into the presidential campaign. President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney are accusing each other of trying to slash Medicare and put seniors at risk. But the counter-intuitive finding from the report is that deep cuts are possible without rationing, and a leaner system may even produce better quality. “Health care in America presents a fundamental paradox,” said the report from an 18-member panel of prominent experts, including doctors, business people, and public officials. “The past 50 years have seen an explosion in biomedical knowledge, dramatic innovation in therapies

and surgical procedures, and management of conditions that previously were fatal … “Yet, American health care is falling short on basic dimensions of quality, outcomes, costs and equity,” the report concluded. If banking worked like health care, ATM transactions would take days, the report said. If home building were like health care, carpenters, electricians and plumbers would work from different blueprints and hardly talk to each other. If shopping were like health care, prices would not be posted and could vary widely within the same store, depending on who was paying. If airline travel were like health care, individual pilots would be free to design their own preflight safety checks or not perform one at all. How much is $750 billion? The one-year estimate of health care waste is equal to more than ten years of Medicare cuts in

Obama’s health care law. It’s more than the Pentagon budget. It’s more than enough to care for the uninsured. Getting health care costs better controlled is one of the keys to reducing the deficit, the biggest domestic challenge facing the next president. The report did not lay out a policy prescription for Medicare and Medicaid but suggested there’s plenty of room for lawmakers to find a path. Both Obama and Romney agree there has to be a limit to Medicare spending, but they differ on how to get that done. Obama would rely on a powerful board to cut payments to service providers, while gradually changing how hospitals and doctors are paid to reward results instead of volume. Romney would limit the amount of money future retirees can get from the government for medical insurance, relying on the private market to find an efficient solution. Each accus-

es of the other of jeopardizing the well-being of seniors. But panel members urged a frank discussion with the public about the value Americans are getting for their health care dollars. As a model, they cited “Choosing Wisely,” a campaign launched earlier this year by nine medical societies to challenge the widespread perception that more care is better. “Rationing to me is when we are denying medical care that is helpful to patients, on the basis of costs,” said cardiologist Dr. Rita Redberg, a medical school professor at the University of California, San Francisco. “We have a lot of medical care that is not helpful to patients, and some of it is harmful. The problem is when you talk about getting rid of any type of health care, someone yells, ‘Rationing.’ “ More than 18 months in the making, the report identified six major areas of waste: unneces-

JAMES ZADROGA 9/11 HEALTH AND COMPENSATION ACT • The law is composed of two parts: the World Trade Center Health Program, which provides monitoring and treatment for ailing responders and others, and the victim’s compensation fund, which covers wage and economic losses pertaining to ground zero-related illnesses. • After much partisan wrangling, Congress approved the Zadroga Act on Dec. 22, 2010, in a last-minute compromise during the final hours of the legislative session. The bill’s advocates originally sought $6.2 billion but ultimately agreed to $4.2 billion. • New York attorney Sheila Birnbaum was appointed special master of the fund by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in May 2011. She is tasked with doling out $875 million in the first five years of the fund, with nearly $2 billion more to be released around 2016.

ceded that it is difficult to find hard data proving the connection between cancer and the dust at ground zero. That’s why in crafting the Zadroga Act, lawmakers were careful to include mechanisms that would allow for illnesses to be added based on new scientific research. An inclusion of cancer on the list will likely encourage more people to file claims. Applicants will have to provide evidence of their diagnosis and time spent at ground zero, though they do not need to enroll in the health program to receive compensation. Birnbaum’s staff, which includes 50 people but is expected to grow, will then determine whether claimants are eligible. The fund has $875 million to distribute in its first five years. The rest of the money will become available in its sixth year, so that recipients will get their awards in two payments.

specific date for the announcement, although Birnbaum said she anticipates it this month. Recently diagnosed with leukemia and lymphoma, 55-year-old Brian Casse hopes he can secure money from the fund to support his wife and children in case he takes a turn for the worst. Casse, a retired firefighter who helped clear away the mountain of rubble at ground zero, believes there’s little doubt his work at the site is responsible for his illness. “You’ve got people in this city who went down there and did what we had to do. And a lot of us got sick because of it,” Casse said. “To make us now fight for this money, it’s not right. In the grand scheme of things, this money’s a drop in the bucket.” Initially, the Zadroga Act named for police Detective James Zadroga, who died at age 34 after working at ground zero, included only a short list of illnesses that qualified for compensation. Cancer was excluded because of a lack of scientific evidence linking any form of the disease to conditions in the debris pile. “To me, it’s common sense. If you breathe in toxic fumes, you’re going to get cancer,” said U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, a Manhattan Democrat who helped author the bill. But even Maloney con-

Nearly two years after President Obama signed the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act into law, about 60,000 responders and survivors continue to receive monitoring and treatment for their illnesses as part of the World Trade Center Health Program, one of the law’s two components.

NEW YORK (AP) — Sheila Birnbaum is known in legal circles across New York as the “queen of torts” for her prowess in sorting out complicated cases. But she may be up against her most daunting task to date. Since Attorney General Eric Holder appointed her special master of a Sept. 11 victims’ compensation fund in May 2011, Birnbaum has been responsible for evenhandedly distributing $2.7 billion to ground zero responders and others who became ill after being exposed to dust and ash from the smoldering ruins of the World Trade Center. The problem is, she doesn’t quite know how many people will be eligible for compensation. “We haven’t yet received the avalanche of claims that might have been expected,” she said, noting that only about 300 people have filed eligibility forms so far. The fund will ultimately receive thousands of applications, she predicts. Nearly two years after President Barack Obama signed the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act into law, about 40,000 responders and survivors receive monitoring and 20,000 get treatment for illnesses as part of the World Trade Center Health Program one of the law’s two components. But the other, Birnbaum’s fund compensating the same kind of people for economic losses, hasn’t been as quick to get off the ground. It’s not a matter of bureaucratic foot-dragging, but rather an illustration of the complexities of key legislation born of the attacks that took place 11 years ago next week. “This is a lot more complicated than meets the eye,” said Birnbaum, an attorney. With time still left to submit claims, some people are holding out in the event that they become sick in the near future. Others are waiting until the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health officially adds 14 broad categories of cancer to the list of conditions covered by the fund. The national institute’s director, Dr. John Howard, said in June that it planned to expand coverage to include scores of cancer types. An institute spokeswoman would not give a

sary services ($210 billion annually); inefficient delivery of care ($130 billion); excess administrative costs ($190 billion); inflated prices ($105 billion); prevention failures ($55 billion), and fraud ($75 billion). Adjusting for some overlap among the categories, the panel settled on an estimate of $750 billion. Examples of wasteful care include most repeat colonoscopies within 10 years of a first such test, early imaging for most back pain, and brain scans for patients who fainted but didn’t have seizures. The report makes ten recommendations, including payment reforms to reward quality results instead of reimbursing for each procedure, improving coordination among different kinds of service providers, leveraging technology to reinforce sound clinical decisions and educating patients to become more savvy consumers.

Readers respond to letter Dear Annie: I had to respond to the letter from "Seeing Red About Blue," whose son is in a wheelchair. She often finds the striped area next to the handicapped parking spot occupied, blocking safe passage back into her van. I have a motorcycle. I used to park in those blue-striped areas because they were a perfect fit for my bike. I had a feeling they might not be OK to park in, but I had no idea what they were for and didn't see any harm in leaving my bike there. One day a woman approached me and actually explained that parking my motorcycle in the striped spot made it difficult for someone in a wheelchair to safely access their car, because I was blocking the route. Annie, I should have known better. I didn't realize I was causing undue hardship, and I immediately apologized and moved my bike into another spot. I will never again park in those striped areas. I appreciated being put in my place. — Found a New Spot To Park Dear Found: Thank you for taking responsibility for doing the wrong thing and then correcting it. We hope other readers will make the same effort. Read on for more: From Chicago: I appreciated all the information in that letter. I never knew what those striped areas in parking lots were for. I honestly thought they were for emergency vehicles. I never thought they were there to help with ramps, walkers, wheelchairs, etc. I am very glad that your writer explained the purpose. Education is power. Thank you. I am now enlightened. Los Angeles: I believe there is an easy solution for drivers who park in the striped lane between handicapped parking spots, preventing a side exit for handicapped passengers. These lanes should also have a posted sign that says, "No Parking, Handicapped Access Lane," complete with corresponding fines. Usually, those signs are only placed in front of the actual parking spot and not the striped area next to it. Wisconsin: I am handicapped and often see people parked in handicapped spaces when they have neither a handicapped license plate or placard. I have begun to leave notes on those people's cars saying, "You are not handicapped. You should not be in this space." It also might help to back into the space so that the striped area next to the ramp cannot be blocked by another car. Michigan: I, too, have a sideloading wheelchair van and have also been "parked in" by people choosing to use the striped area. I've also seen small cars with handicapped placards parked in van-designated areas. And it's exceptionally common for people to leave their shopping carts in those striped areas. My husband purchased a small orange cone and printed RAMP on it in large black letters. He attached a 6-foot rope to it and tied the other end to the front passenger seat of the van. When we park, we pull the cone out and place it in the adjoining space. And do call the police next time there is a car parked in the striped area. When I did this, they didn't tow the car, but they did write a ticket. If we make this an issue, the police will enforce the law. Baton Rouge: How about utilizing two plastic pylons (easily purchased at an athletic equipment outlet)? Affix long pieces of bright tape to each pylon, and attach the other end to a magnet. Attach the magnets to your vehicle, and leave the pylons (with the tape attached) to the amount of space needed for your ramp. The entire package can be rolled up and placed inside the car for reuse when you're done. Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HOW TO PLAY: Complete the grid so that every row, column and 3x3 box contains every digit from 1 to 9 inclusively. Find answers to today’s puzzle in tomorrow’s Troy Daily News. YESTERDAY’S SOLUTION:


Vinegar: The ultimate cleaning solution Dear Readers: Do you open your bathroom and kitchen cabinets only to find a lot of cleaners, scrubs and cleaning chemicals there? For a better, green solution that is cheap and friendly to the environment, use vinegar! Pour vinegar full strength, or mix it up! Here’s a good recipe to try: Combine 1/2 cup white vinegar, 1 pint rubbing alcohol and 1 teaspoon liquid dishwashing liquid. Add enough water to make a gallon. Pour into a spray bottle and clearly label. This will clean the shower door, break down soap scum

Hints from Heloise Columnist and clean mirrors! For a Heloise pamphlet filled with my favorite vinegar hints through the years, send $5, along with a long, selfaddressed, stamped (65 cents) envelope, to: Heloise/Vinegar, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Too many soap suds in the

sink when hand-washing your delicates? Add a squirt of friendly vinegar to the rinse water, and rinse again with clear water. — Heloise PET PAL Dear Readers: A reader sent in a picture of her darling black Brussels griffon, Tootie. She said she snorts when she gets excited (the dog, not the owner). To see Tootie and other Pet Pals, visit, and click on “Pets.” — Heloise P.S.: My website also will link you to my Facebook and Twitter pages — hints, fun facts and more! Come see pho-

tos and check out what’s happening. NO-SLIP SHEETS Dear Heloise: Buy a pair of men’s suspenders and separate them into two single pieces. Place them under the mattress (Heloise here: depending on size of mattress) and, using the clips on each end, attach them to the fitted sheet from one side to the other — one near the top and one near the bottom. It takes more time and trouble to change your linens, but you have a nice, smooth fitted sheet that stays on. — Pam in Yantis, Texas












HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, Sept. 9, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A female family member, possibly your mother, will stir your sympathies today. Do whatever you can to help someone if he or she needs your assistance. (Remember the Golden Rule.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might spend a lot of time daydreaming or woolgathering today. Your imagination is off in never-never land dreaming about what might be possible in the future. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You’re very tempted to spend money on luxury and elegant items today. The bottom line, of course, is whether you can afford these items. Don’t go into debt. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Today the Moon is in your sign, which makes you particularly sympathetic to the needs of others. You have a desire to please, and you also want to help anyone in need. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Today you are willing to put the needs and wants of others before your own. Just call it a Mother Teresa influence. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) It will be a rewarding experience for you if you can work with nonprofit organizations or charitable societies to make the world a better place. You want to make a difference if you can. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Certain details of your private life will be made public today, and they will reveal how sympathetic you are about something. There’s nothing wrong with others seeing your soft, gentle heart. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your appreciation of beauty is heightened today; therefore, give yourself a chance to enjoy beautiful places. Visit parks, museums, art galleries, architectural buildings and pristine nature. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might join forces with others to share something with someone who is less fortunate. Make sure you have all your facts before you make a commitment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Someone close to you will appeal to your sympathy today. Naturally, it’s good for you to respond with unaffected interest and generosity. Just make sure their appeal is genuine. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) If you can help a co-worker today you will, and this is a good thing. After all, what goes around comes around. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You are in touch with your muse today. This is why you should grab any opportunity to express your creativity. Romance is particularly tender and sweet. YOU BORN TODAY You are intelligent. You have a fine, discriminating mind. You appreciate subtleties that others fail to see. Challenges don’t scare you. You sense what others want, and you have your finger on the pulse of the public. You’re very private about your personal life. In the year ahead, a major change might take place, perhaps something as significant as what occurred around 2003.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Saturday, Sept. 8, the 252nd day of 2012. There are 114 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 8, 1892, an early version of “The Pledge of Allegiance,” written by Francis Bellamy, appeared in “The Youth’s Companion.” On this date: In 1504, Michelangelo’s towering marble statue of David was unveiled to the public in Florence, Italy.

In 1565, a Spanish expedition established the first permanent European settlement in North America at present-day St. Augustine, Florida. In 1935, Sen. Huey P. Long, D-La., was shot and mortally wounded inside the Louisiana State Capitol; he died two days later. (The assailant was identified as Dr. Carl Weiss, who was gunned down by Long’s bodyguards.) In 1941, the 900-day Siege of Leningrad by German forces

began during World War II. In 1951, a peace treaty with Japan was signed by 49 nations in San Francisco. In 1974, President Gerald R. Ford granted an unconditional pardon to former President Richard Nixon. In 1987, former Democratic presidential candidate Gary Hart admitted during an interview on ABC’s “Nightline” that he had committed adultery, and said he had no plans to resume his White House bid.

Quakes kill at least 80 in mountainous area of China mines where some of China’s poorest people live. The first magnitude-5.6 quake struck just before 11:30 a.m. and was followed by an equally strong quake shortly after noon, joined by dozens of aftershocks. Though of moderate strength, the quakes were shallow, which often causes more damage. Hardest hit was Yiliang County, where all but one of the deaths occurred, according to the Yunnan provincial government’s official website. Another 730 people in the area were injured, the state-run Xinhua News Agency


as soldiers carrying injured people and rescue materials. Though quakes occur in the area frequently, buildings in rural areas and China’s fastgrowing smaller cities and towns are often constructed poorly. A magnitude-7.9 quake that hit Sichuan province, just north of Yunnan, in 2008 killed nearly 90,000 people, with many of the deaths blamed on poorly built structures, including schools. Friday’s quakes destroyed 6,650 homes across several counties and townships, Xinhua said. The Yunnan seismology bureau said more than 100,000 people




All things being equal - We won’t be undersold!



said. Yiliang’s high population density, flimsy building construction and landslide-prone hillsides were blamed for the relatively high death toll. China Central Television showed roads littered with rocks and boulders and pillars of dust rising over hilltops from the landslides. One image taken just as one quake struck showed people running out of a supermarket as the ground shook. Other footage showed several hundred people crowding into a school athletic field in Yiliang’s county seat, a sizable city spread along a river in a valley, as well

were evacuated from their homes. All told, 700,000 people had their lives disrupted by the quake, Xinhua said. In Luozehe, a town in Yiliang near a zinc mine, residents and state media said boulders hurtled off hillsides and houses collapsed. “It is scary. My brother was killed by falling rocks. The aftershocks struck again and again. We are so afraid,” Xinhua quoted miner Peng Zhuwen as saying. Wu Xuhong, a goat herder in Luozhe, said only tiles fell from his relatively solid cement and brick sheds.

Harry in Afghanistan Selling Old Coins? Prince to fly Apache helicopters


Miami Valley Centre Mall, Piqua 2312622

BEIJING (AP) — Twin earthquakes and a spate of aftershocks struck southwestern China on Friday, toppling thousands of houses and sending boulders cascading across roads. At least 80 people were killed and hundreds injured in the remote mountainous area, and more than 100,000 residents were evacuated. Damage was preventing rescuers from reaching outlying towns, and communications were disrupted after the midday quakes hit along the borders of Guizhou and Yunnan provinces, a region of small farms and

CAMP BASTION, Afghanistan (AP) — Prince Harry, third in line to the British throne, began a fourmonth combat tour Friday in Afghanistan as a gunner on an Apache attack helicopter, fresh from a vacation that included strip billiards in a Las Vegas hotel. It was the second tour in Afghanistan for Harry, 27, who will start flying missions within 10 days in the country’s restive Helmand province, the British military said. In 2007-08, he served in Helmand as an air traffic controller. Looking relaxed if slightly tired, Harry gave a thumbs-up Friday after a long journey on a troop car-

rier flight from England to Britain’s Camp Bastion, a sprawling desert base near the southern Afghan town of Lashkar Gah. Capt. Harry Wales, as he is known in the military, wore his combat uniform and joined his 100-strong unit the 662 Squadron, 3 Regiment Army Air Corps. As part of the Apache’s two-man crew, Harry will be both a co-pilot and the gunner responsible for firing the Apache’s wing-mounted aerial rockets, Hellfire laser-guided missiles and 30mm machine gun. Britain has around 9,500 troops in Afghanistan, mainly based in Helmand province.

Hitching a Ride Danica Patrick said Friday she is still looking for an opportunity to race in the Indianapolis 500 next season if she can get a competitive ride. “I’d like to if it’s with the right team,” Patrick said at Richmond International Raceway. “If it’s not, then there is no point for me. I feel like I’d still be able to get in a seat and get comfortable with the amount of practice time there is in Indy and have a shot to win the race. But again, if I don’t have a shot to win the race or feel like it’s a real opportunity, then I am not going to do it.” Patrick made seven Indy 500 starts, with a best finish of third in 2009 the highest ever finish for a woman in the field. She left IndyCar at the end of last year for NASCAR and is scheduled to run the full Sprint Cup season in 2013.

The extension is a one-year agreement, and he said Thursday he took a paycut just like almost every driver has of late. SHR is searching for heavy sponsorship for next year. The U.S. Army said earlier this summer it’s not returning to NASCAR next season, and Office Depot said Sunday it won’t be back as co-primary of Tony Stewart’s car.

Harvick wins at Richmond

Merging Forces Sports car racing in North America is getting a makeover. Grand-Am and American Le Mans announced a merger Wednesday that will join them as one series beginning in 2014. Grand-Am founder Jim France and ALMS founder Don Panoz said in a joint statement at Daytona International Speedway that the new series will start with the Rolex 24 at Daytona in 2014 and likely include 12 races. France, son of NASCAR founder Bill France Sr., said the merger made him recall the day nearly 65 years ago when his father led the meeting that created stockcar racing.



Jeff Gordon sits in his car during practice for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series auto race at Richmond International Raceway Friday in Richmond, Va.

Busch vs. Gordon Two drivers battling for final Chase spot RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — NASCAR trotted out eight drivers Thursday who are all mathematically eligible to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. In reality, Saturday night’s “regular season” finale is a race between Kyle Busch and Jeff Gordon for the final berth in the 12-driver field. The two wild card berths are both technically open. But with two wins on the season, Kasey Kahne is in strong shape to lock one of them down. So Busch and Gordon talked as if it’s just down to them for the last slot. “I think it’s just Jeff and I,” Busch said. “Nothing against any of the other guys, but the way past history preserves itself, I think it’s just Jeff and I.” Busch can clinch a berth by winning the race, or by losing 12 or fewer points to Gordon. It doesn’t hurt that Richmond is one of his best tracks. He’s a four-time winner at Richmond, and his May win here is his only victory this season. He’s got an average finish of 4.7 and has 13 top-10s in 15 career starts. With that track record, he

didn’t seem too stressed Thursday. “It certainly relieves a little bit of pressure than if (the race) was anywhere else,” Busch said. “Richmond is a really good race for me, but it is a short track where anything can happen.” Gordon only makes it into the Chase by finishing 13 points ahead of Busch. And, a week after failing to knock Denny Hamlin out of the way at Atlanta for what would have been a crucial victory, Gordon is vowing to do anything needed to make the Chase. “We’re going to do whatever it takes to win, whatever that means,” Gordon said Thursday. What it doesn’t mean, though, is asking for help. Hendrick Motorsports drivers Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. are already locked into the Chase, and although Kasey Kahne isn’t yet, it would take an epic failure and a litany of other scenarios for him not to claim a wild card. Gordon wants them to run their own races on Saturday night. “I’m not going to ask them to

do anything for me,” he said. “It they choose to do anything on their own, that’s on them.” At the same time, Gordon said he won’t give anyone any breaks, even his teammates. At Atlanta, on the final restart, he had a chance to knock Hamlin out of the way and steal a win that would have given him two on the season and put him in prime position to grab the last Chase berth. He’s been kicking himself ever since, and even wondered if he’s getting soft in his later years. It won’t happen again on Saturday night. “Right now, we’re going to be treating anybody that’s in front of us as if they are the enemy,” Gordon said. Busch understands that it could be anything goes in the closing laps on Saturday night. His preference is for a quiet race, with a driver already locked into the Chase winning, and Busch finishing second. But if he’s got to move Gordon for the win, he’ll do it, and knows Gordon will do the same to him. “It would be in line with what’s on the line,” he said.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Kevin Harvick took the lead by dodging a caution caused by leader Kurt Busch, then pulled away on a restart with 17 laps to go and won the Nationwide Series race Friday night at Richmond International Raceway. The victory snapped a 30-race winless streak in the series for Harvick, whose last victory came in this race two years ago. It was his 38th victory in the series, and fifth at Richmond. As he had done for much of the race, Harvick pulled away as if he had an extra gear when the race went back to green on lap 234, leaving championship contender Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Busch to battle for second. Stenhouse won that easily. Busch was third, followed by local favorite Denny Hamlin and Michael Annett. • Sprint Qualifier RICHMOND, Va. — It’s a Hendrick Motorsports front row at Richmond International Raceway. Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the pole for Saturday night’s “regular-season” finale, turning a lap of 127.023 mph in his Chevrolet to bump teammate Jeff Gordon from the top starting spot. “I was as surprised as anybody,” said Earnhardt, who won the 11th pole of his career. “It feels good. I’ve not really been the best of qualifiers the last couple of years. We have a lot of improvements we’ve made this year. It feels good to get a pole.” It’s the first pole for NASCAR’s most popular driver since the 2011 Daytona 500. It came at the expense of Gordon, who is trying to race his way into the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Gordon wound up second, and was pleased with the effort. “Mission accomplished,” he said. Gordon needs a strong race Saturday night and a little bit of help to earn one of the two wild-card berths in the 12-driver Chase field. Although eight drivers go into the race mathematically eligible for the final two spots in the Chase field, the talk has focused on a battle between Gordon and Kyle Busch for the last slot.

NASCAR puts limitations on Hendrick development RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — NASCAR on Thursday passed a rule that will curb the ability of teams to set their cars up in a way that gives the driver easier rear steer. The technical bulletin issued by NASCAR goes into effect next week at Chicago, when the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship begins, and many believe it is aimed directly at powerhouse Hendrick Motorsports. Drivers have alleged for months that Hendrick

made gains in the rear housing this season that gave its cars an aerodynamic advantage. NASCAR has maintained through the complaints that the Hendrick teams weren’t breaking any rules, which four-time champion Jeff Gordon reiterated. “When we presented it to NASCAR for approval, they didn’t act like it was something they had never seen before,” Gordon said. “I don’t even think we were the first ones to do it.” Gordon also alleged most

everyone in the garage is doing the same thing now, which Kyle Busch confirmed with a caveat. “We all started working on it once we saw what they were doing,” Busch said. “It’s follow the leader. You really don’t have many secrets here in the garage area very long. We started going to work on those kind of things, too, and trying to manipulate some of the same things they were doing.” Starting next week, NASCAR is limiting the

amount of movement of the bushings located in the rear suspension to a quarter of an inch. The bushings are sleeves made of rubber or other materials located near the rear mounting points. Hendrick teams found a way to make them softer and softer in an effort to let the truck arms move and help steer the rear of the cars in the turns. Brad Keselowski has been one of the most vocal critics of the development Hendrick has done, but NASCAR could do nothing.

“It’s an advantage, but it’s a legal advantage,” Busch said. “There is nothing illegal with what they were doing.” But there will be limits starting next week, when Hendrick will have at least two and possibly all four of its drivers racing for the championship. Five-time champion Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. are already in the Chase, while Kasey Kahne and Gordon are trying to lock down wild card spots tonight at Richmond.

Astros rock Chapman CINCINNATI (AP) — Matt Dominguez hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning Friday night that broke Aroldis Chapman’s streak of 27 consecutive saves and powered the Houston Astros to a 5-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Chapman (5-5) took a 3-2 lead into the ninth, but had his clubrecord streak broken by a player swinging with a sore left hand. Tyler Greene and J.D. Martinez singled off Chapman with one out.

Shocker at Open Azarenka stuns Sharapova in 3

when lightning storms forced Troy and Piqua to play a Saturday night game at Troy Memorial Stadium. “This really was the best alternative,” Sakal said. “We’ve got a band competition scheduled for 6 p.m. at the stadium and there will be bands coming in and setting up before that. The other problem is we’ve got ACT testing at 8 a.m. and we’ve got kids on both teams who will be taking that test, which ends at noon. Really, this was the only time we could get this game

NEW YORK (AP) — Normally so good, so gritty, in the crucible of the third set, Maria Sharapova finally met her match against Victoria Azarenka. Coming all the way back from a set and a break down, the topseeded Azarenka prevailed in a stirring third, beating four-time Grand Slam champion Sharapova 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 on Friday to reach her first U.S. Open final. “This one didn’t go my way,” Sharapova said. “Frustrating, but it’s the game of tennis. A lot of swings in the match today. Certainly had the lead and the advantage.” Entering Friday, Sharapova was 12-0 in three-setters this year, and had won 78 consecutive matches in which she took the opening set, a streak dating to 2010. But Azarenka broke in the last game to push her own 2012 record to 12-0 in matches that went the distance. “Actually, I didn’t know that statistic,” Azarenka said during an on-court interview. “It’s pretty good.” Perfect, actually. On Saturday, Australian Open champion Azarenka will play in her second major final of the season and career against 14-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams. Seeking a fourth title at Flushing Meadows, the fourthseeded Williams wasted little time or energy while overwhelming 10th-seeded Sara Errani of Italy 6-1, 6-2. Williams, trying to become the

A lost Friday Rain moves football games to today BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor TROY — With lightning filling the skies Friday night and a full slate of events scheduled for today, Troy Athletic Director Jeff Sakal had a tough call to make. In the end, the decision was: the Troy vs. Xenia football game scheduled for Friday night at Troy Memorial Stadium was postponed due to lightning storms. The varsity game will take place at 3 p.m. today at Ferguson Field, located between the Troy Junior High School and

MIAMI COUNTY Troy High School buildings. There will be no freshman or junior varsity football games. Admission to the game will be free, but because of the limited seating available at Ferguson Field, fans have been encouraged to bring lawn chairs. A number of alternatives were discussed — including moving the game to Sunday — but ultimately, the decision was made to play the game today. It is the first time Troy has had a game postponed since 2003,

No. 14 OSU preps for big test from UCF Ultra-young Browns face tough test Benjamin Watson looked at the name plates and fresh faces surrounding him as he dressed after practice. The 31-year-old tight end noticed the Cleveland Browns have gotten a whole lot younger. “In this locker room, my 3-year-old’s old,” he joked. See Page 18.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Quarterback Blake Bortles believes that his Central Florida team has athletes to play on even terms with No. 14 Ohio State on Saturday. Another famous, or infamous, former Floridian agrees. “They’re a Big Ten talent,” Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said of UCF. “There’s no question there’s people on that team at certain positions that are as good or better than our (guys). They have

five or six NFL players on their roster. That tells you what we’re getting ready to face. We’d better be ready. This is going to be a brawl.” In the first meeting between the schools, both enter with 1-0 records. Each scored 56 points last week in battering Mid-American Conference opponents from Ohio, the Knights whipping Akron 5614 and the Buckeyes rolling over Miami University 56-10 in Meyer’s first game on the side-

lines after coaching Florida to two national titles in six seasons, 2005-10. The Knights of coach George O’Leary, coming off a 5-7 season in 2011, are brimming with confidence. “I think we can run with them, I think we can run with anybody,” said Bortles, who threw for three touchdowns last week in his first collegiate start. “We’re a team full of athletes. Everybody’s going to go out there and give it their all.”

Linebacker Jonathan Davis echoed that sentiment. “I feel like all the athletes we have can match up with the athletes they have over there,” he said. “We’re just going to see who works harder.” The Buckeyes are favored by 18 points and playing before a partisan crowd of more than 105,000 at Ohio Stadium. “Some people take it personally, but we have no problem being

Panel vacates bounty suspensions for 4 players NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The suspensions of Jonathan Vilma and three other players in the NFL’s bounty investigation were lifted Friday by a threemember appeals panel and the league reinstated those players a few minutes later. While the ruling allows Saints linebacker Vilma, banned for the 2012 season, Saints defensive end Will Smith, Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita and free agent defensive lineman Anthony

Hargrove to play immediately, it does not permanently void their suspensions. Still, the ruling comes just two days before the first full slate of NFL games this season and is a setback for Commissioner Roger Goodell and the league. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Goodell would “make an expedited determination of the discipline imposed” for violating the league’s bounty rule. “Until that determina-

tion is made, the four players are reinstated and eligible to play starting this weekend,” Aiello said. Vilma tweeted: “Victory is mine!!!! -stewie griffin” Added Fujita: “I’m overwhelmed with all the support. Thank you so much everyone. Can’t tell you how much it means to me.” The ruling does not affect New Orleans coach Sean Payton, suspended for the season, interim coach Joe Vitt (six games) or general

manager Mickey Loomis (six games). While the panel did not address the merits of the NFL’s bounty investigation, it said Goodell overstepped his authority in hearing the players’ appeals of their punishment for their roles in the Saints bounty program that paid cash bonuses for hits that injured opponents. The panel’s decision states that Special Master Stephen Burbank, not

Goodell, should discipline players for receiving money from a pool that paid for big plays. Goodell’s role, the panel said, should be limited to whether he can prove the players intended to injure opponents, which would fall in the category of conduct detrimental to the game. Players and coaches implicated in the bounty pool have testified under oath in a related federal court case they never intended to injure opposing

players. “Whether the commissioner tries to readdress the situation or not is his call,” said Peter Ginsberg, Vilma’s attorney. “We are certainly hoping the appeals board has made it clear the commissioner tried to grab jurisdiction and impose penalties over an area he does not have oversight. … The factual record in the court makes it clear he has acted in a biased and inappropriate manner.”

Counting on youth

■ CONTINUED FROM 17 at 10 victories. Bailey pitched into the seventh inning, giving up two runs on a first-inning homer by Justin Maxwell. Ryan Ludwick had a two-run single, and Jay Bruce singled home the tiebreaking run in the fifth off Lucas Harrell allowing Cincinnati to hand the lead to the NL’s top bullpen. The Reds had Joey Votto back at first base for the second straight game.

Votto missed 48 games because of torn cartilage in his left knee. He flied out and drew three walks, one of them intentional. Although Votto was back, the Reds were missing the other side of the infield. Third baseman Scott Rolen had an MRI that found inflammation in his lower back and will miss at least a few games. Shortstop Zack Cozart was still bothered by a sore back, which he hurt on Tuesday.

Football ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 played.” Sakal said the decision was agreed to by representatives from both schools. “We got both parties together to hash it out,” Sakal said. “We tried to do what was best for the kids.” The game was delayed several times Friday night in hopes that it wouldn’t have to be postponed. When it became apparent the storms wouldn’t move through the area and allow the game to be played at a reasonable time, the decision was made to move the game to today. “It’s extremely frustrating,” Sakal said. “You wait and wait, but sooner or later you have to make the decision. Obviously safety comes first. You have to keep everyone safe.” • Postponements All Around The massive, lightningfilled storm system stretched far beyond just Troy, and every Miami County football team ended up paying the price. In Tipp City, the site of the Troy Daily News Game of the Week between rivals Milton-

Union and Tippecanoe, things never got started, either. The first lightning delay came 10 minutes before kickoff, and by 7:40 p.m. the game had already been called. Tippecanoe will host Milton-Union at 7 p.m. tonight at Tipp City Park. Another big game between two county — and conference — rivals got started, with Covington taking a 20-0 lead on visiting Bethel in the first quarter before the game was suspended until 7 p.m. tonight. Troy Cron ran the opening kickoff back 99 yards for a touchdown, then Trent Tobias scored on runs of 52 and 34 yards. The game also marks former Covington coach and first-year Bethel coach Kevin Finfrock’s return to Smith Field. Bradford at National Trail was also bumped to 7 p.m. tonight, while Arcanum at Miami East will kick off at 7:30 p.m. tonight. Indian Lake will play at Lehman at 4 p.m. today, while Piqua will resume its game at Lima Senior — which the Indians lead 27-7 at the half — at 2 p.m. today.

With 15 rookies, Browns face tough test against Eagles BEREA (AP) — Benjamin Watson looked at the name plates and fresh faces surrounding him as he dressed after practice. The 31-year-old tight end noticed the Cleveland Browns have gotten a whole lot younger. “In this locker room, my 3-year-old’s old,” he joked. He’s hardly, well, kidding. With 15 rookies and 12 other players with less than two years of experience on the 53-man roster, the Browns are counting on youth to serve them in 2012. They are the first team since Kansas City in 2008 to have 15 rookies for the opening game, and with an average age of 26 years, 10 days, the Browns are the NFL’s second-youngest squad, according to STATS LLC. “They have fresh legs,” coach Pat Shurmur cracked the other day. That’s true, but the young Browns will also have to endure some growing pains in the weeks ahead. There’s no substitute for experience, and it will be quite some time before they’ll have any to draw upon. Still, the Browns aren’t worried that they’re too young to be good. On Sunday, against a Philadelphia team many believe can win the Super Bowl, the Browns will start a rookie quarterback (Brandon Weeden), rookie running back (Trent Richardson), rookie right offensive tackle (Mitchell Schwartz) , rookie defensive tackle (Billy Winn) and possibly rookie wide receiver (Josh Gordon), if they open in a three-wide formation. And soon, they’ll have a rookie owner as Jimmy Haslam’s purchase of the franchise is expected to be approved next month. But Browns president Mike Holmgren doesn’t


Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden scrambles against the Philadelphia Eagles in an NFL preseason football game Aug. 24 in Cleveland. think the team’s innocent look will be a detriment. “This football team, even though it’s young, is physically much better,” Holmgren said. “We are young, but we have better players and we have better depth. I believe our special team’s has a chance to be much better. If you’re going to build it the way we’re going to build it, there’s a chance you have these types of numbers.” At 28, Weeden is no ordinary rookie and he’ll be the first to start an opener at quarterback for Cleveland. Weeden didn’t expect the Browns to be so green in his first season. “It’s a lot,” he said of the team’s large rookie class. “I’m not a numbers buff as far as NFL history, but this has got to be close to a record. There’s a lot of rookies but there’s good ones, really good players. Whether they’re 22, 28, or whatever, they’re rookies and there’s going to be some ups and

some downs.” Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson expects a rollercoaster ride. He knows there will be times when his young teammates are overwhelmed. It’s just part of the deal. But Jackson said there’s something special about being around a bunch of eager, excited teammates who don’t know what’s ahead of them and who don’t seem to care. “It brings the team together, having young guys around, they’re playful and doing this and doing that,” he said. “There’s always fun everywhere.” As Jackson spoke, Winn danced nearby to music coming from a speaker in end Frostee Rucker’s locker. “See,” Jackson said, pointing at Winn. Jackson said one of the biggest plusses about young players is that they’re willing. There’s no questions, no second-guessing, it’s follow directions or suffer the con-

sequences. “They’re doing what they’re told,” Jackson said. “You can kind of mold guys where you can help them obviously, but they will do what they’re told exactly to the tee.” Weeden, who will be the 17th quarterback to start for the Browns since 1999, said the team’s young blood is an advantage because players aren’t as physically beaten down as maybe some veterans. “We’ve got some guys, they don’t get tired,” Weeden said. “They run around, they just continue to go like the Energizer Bunny. Some of these receivers just run and run and keep going. I think that will help. And from what I’ve seen, a lot of these guys have short memories. You have to have a short memory to play in this league and to play big-time professional sports in general. “Hopefully we’ll use that to our advantage.”

ceptions. He also rushed for a school record by a quarterback with 161 yards, including 65 on one play where he juked a defensive back and then raced by him. Ohio State trailed 3-0 and could have been down at least 14-0 early. The scarlet-and-gray clad crowd was uneasy and even Meyer was wondering if his vaunted spread offense would ever find footing. At that point, Miller reassured him by saying everything would be fine and the Buckeyes would climb out of what he called their “deep, black hole.” “We’ve just got to get a

better start next time so it won’t be as stressful on the head coach,” Miller said with a grin. Big plays were the Buckeyes’ best friend. They had nine pass plays for double-digit gains and eight runs of at least 10 yards. Of that total, eight plays picked up a minimum 20 yards. So the Knights have been keying on preventing any lengthy dashes by Ohio State’s hurry-up offense. “It’s just being fundamentally sound and eliminating as many big plays as you can,” defensive lineman Troy Davis said. “Staying on your keys, getting guys to the ball, that eliminates all that.” Meyer stepped down from the Florida job late in the 2010 season, citing health and family considerations. He worked last season as a college football analyst for ESPN before taking the high-profile, high-pressure Ohio State job in November. Some University of Florida fans remain angry that he left, apparently. An informal poll in the Knights’ hometown Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel this week indicated that roughly seven of 10 Gators fans were rooting for UCF usu-

ally an afterthought to the big three of Miami, Florida State and Florida in the Sunshine State to beat Meyer and Ohio State. Meyer said he still loved the Gators. Besides, he’s got enough to worry about with his own team. “We’re average right now. We’re playing a very good team that’s equal (to us) at some positions,” the blunt-talking Meyer said this week. “There’s certain positions that are average.” He said his offensive line and short-yardage unit, linebackers and defensive line need to improve. O’Leary, in his ninth year with the Knights, wasn’t offering much sympathy. “(A Meyer-coached team is) always well-drilled, and I don’t think they’re playing with chopped liver he’s playing with great athletes out there,” he said. “He utilizes them very well. He gets his good athletes the ball in space and lets them do the work.” UCF will probably not have starting running back Latavius Murray due to a shoulder injury. Miami Hurricane transfer Storm Johnson in his stead. Neither team can go to a bowl game after the season.

Quarterback Braxton Miller was 1 for 7 for 5 yards passing in the first quarter but ended up 14 of 24 for 207 yards and two touchdowns with no inter-

Singh in lead at BMW CARMEL, Ind. (AP) — Vijay Singh keeps giving himself chances to end four years without a PGA Tour victory. He made four birdies around the turn Friday for a 6-under 66 in the BMW Championship, putting his name atop the leaderboard for the second time in his last four tournaments. It won’t get any easier the rest of the way. Tiger Woods was one shot behind. So was Rory McIlroy. Going into a stormfilled weekend at Crooked Stick, four players who have reached No. 1 in the world were among the top six. “I’ve got to keep it going,” Singh said. “I’ve been playing well for two days for a while now, but I need four days of good playing. Sooner or later, I think four days is going to happen. And hopefully, it starts this week.” Woods started slowly and finished strong, with birdies on his last two holes for a 67. McIlroy, coming off what he called one of the best ballstriking rounds of his life, had to overcome four bogeys for a hard-earned 68. Joining them one shot out of the lead was Ryan Moore, who had a 66 and seems to play well in the BMW Championship no matter which state it is held. Lee Westwood (65) and Indiana native Bo Van Pelt (69) were two shots off the lead.

Open ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 first 30-year-old woman to win the U.S. Open since Martina Navratilova in 1987, compiled a 38-6 edge in winners in her 64-minute semifinal against Errani. Since a surprising exit at the French Open in late May, her only first-round loss in 49 appearances at major tournaments, Williams is 251, including a title at Wimbledon and gold medal at the London Olympics. Williams owns a 9-1 career record against Azarenka. Then again, the way Azarenka dealt with Sharapova, she’s probably feeling pretty good about herself, too. She sure looked pleased while doing a little jig, then chucking some tennis balls into the stands, after the fading Sharapova’s forehand sailed long on the final point of their 2-hour, 42minute quarterfinal. “I was just not trying to focus on the score,” Azarenka said. “Trying to give whatever it takes.” Given a chance to rest for a bit after the second set by a 10-minute break requested by Sharapova under the extreme heat rule, both women came out swinging away in the third. Azarenka emerged from the locker room before Sharapova and took the opportunity to practice groundstrokes and serves with ballkids. The third set was filled with high-quality play, made all the more impressive considering the sun, the swirling wind and what was at stake. They hit the ball hard. They chased down shots with terrific defense. Sharapova even shifted her racket from her right to her left hand during a couple of lengthy exchanges. One particularly intense and riveting game came with Sharapova serving while trailing 2-1. Azarenka accumulated three break points, but Sharapova saved each, the last with a cross-court backhand winner. After a fifth deuce, Sharapova eventually held with a 109 mph ace, one of her eight in the match. But the third-seeded Sharapova also double-faulted 10 times, a recurring theme ever since she returned from surgery on her right shoulder in 2008.
