Despite an employee early buyout program, attrition and the district’s wage and step freeze agreements with both its unions, Troy City Schools will still have expenditures exceed revenue in fiscal year 2012-2013. At the Troy City Schools board of education

meeting Monday, treasurer Craig Jones reported the district’s appropriations plans to receive $1.2 million less in revenue in fiscal year 20122013. Jones said the district expects to have $39.8 million total revenue from all sources in 20122013 with $41 million in expenditures. Jones

said the district’s losses in revenue include the phase out of the tangible personal property tax, and the property tax from the final settlement with former Panasonic and general economic conditions have caused revenues to drop more than 3 percent from the previous year. Jones said the tangible personal property tax is expected to bring $2.6 million to the district, which is down $800,000 from last year. “We’re still getting some, but that phase out

A day to remember

Troy resident will never forget terrorist attacks BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer


ore than 11 years have passed, yet for many, it seems like only yesterday the nation mourned the loss of more than 3,000 lives during the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Those four commercial airplanes, at the hands of terrorists, demolished the New York City World Trade Center’s twin towers, struck the E-ring corridor of the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. and crashed into a field in rural Pennsylvania. Each story is personal, including Troy, Ohio’s stories of 9/11: A mother who frantically awaited word from her son who worked in the World Trade Center’s Tower No. 7, a small-town would-be mayor who watched the events as he attended an education conference, a local historian who had just arrived in Scotland and a retired Army veteran who listened to


the news on the radio in the Troy Wal-Mart parking lot all shared where they were and what they were doing on this day 11 years ago. Also, in conclusion, there’s a story of a principal’s devoDebate tion in keeping the surrounds memory of 9/11 alive 9/11 for many of her stumemorial. dents who weren’t even See born or were small Page 4 children 11 years ago. Much like 11 years ago, 9/11 fell on a Tuesday, with eerily similar weather, as warm sunshine and a cool breeze noted autumn was coming. A Mother’s Search Betty Shoup, 82, a retired realtor, remembers Sept. 11, 2001 like it was yesterday, and she fully admits that the anniversary of the worst terror attacks against the U.S. still haunts her.

“I still get emotional just watching all the news coverage to this day,” Shoup said. Shoup’s son Andrew, now 56, was a 1974 Troy High School graduate working in the heart of New York City and its World Trade Center complex. At the time of Sept. 11, 2001, he lived in Connecticut and held a job with Citi Bank Corporation, which was housed in World Trade Center’s building No. 7. “It was a pile of ashes by the end of the day,” Shoup recalled Tuesday. Shoup herself was miles away from home in Cincinnati at a real estate class when she saw a TV in the hallway and asked what millions of others asked that day: What was going on? “I didn’t know!” Shoup said. Shoup said when she heard the news the World Trade Centers were in the middle of the attack, she could have fainted on the spot.

has hurt us,� Jones said. The district will spend $1.2 million less than last year. Salaries are expected to pay out $1.4 million less than last year as well. Jones noted the district will see savings through its early buyout program, hiring new teachers on a beginning scale, no step increases across the board, attrition and the district is in its second year of wage freezes which Jones said have helped keep expenditures from soaring. Last spring, 24 teachers committed to the early buyout the district planned to replace 17 of those positions. Classified staff had 11 employees take the buyout with plans to replace eight of the classified positions. Of the teachers taking the buyout, 18 will retired last school year and six will retire at the end of the 2013 school year. The projected savings to the district with the Educators Preferred Corporation early buyout program is more than $5.1 million in salary and benefit savings spread out over eight years. The district’s 2012-2013 appropriations are due to the state by Oct. 1. The board also approved the annual Enterprise Zone Agreement with ConAgra Foods for the abatement in

its expansion project for 15 years at 100 percent. The company donates an annual check of approximately $20,000 to the school district in good faith for its partnership through the EZA. In 2010, ConAgra began its $64 million plant expansion to accommodate worldwide production of its Slim Jims beef stick product. As part of the expansion agreement, in March 2010, the board of education agreed to allow the company to waive 100 percent of its real estate property taxes for 15 years on new property expansion to help entice the company to relocate its Slim Jim production to Troy. District officials agreed to the EZA agreement because district has a 1.5 percent income tax to generate revenue for Troy City Schools. Scott Adkins thanked the board for its support and said the plant continues to add jobs with its recent expansion from an expected 550 to its current 643 employees. President Doug Trostle said the EZA agreement with the city, its development council helps brings jobs to the local economy which in turn, brings revenue to the school district. “It’s worked out very well,� said Troy City Schools Superintendent Eric Herman.

Two hurt in rollover

— Staff and wire reports

MIKE ULLERY Ohio Community Media MIAMI COUNTY — Seatbelts and airbags prevented a Monday morning rollover crash on County Road 25-A at the MiamiShelby county line from becoming more serious, according to first responders. Miami County Sheriff’s deputies and emergency responders from Piqua and Fletcher responded to the 10,000 block of County Road 25-A around 9:30 a.m. CareFlight was put on standby when it was determined that the driver and a passenger would both need

to be extricated from the mini van that landed on its side and against a tree. It took approximately 15 minutes to free both victims, who were then transported to Upper Valley Medical Center for treatment. The driver was identified as Della M. Gilmore, 54, of Sidney. Her passenger was reported to be a child. Conditions were not available Tuesday on either person in the car, although personnel on the scene did not believe the child’s injuries to be serious. Deputies are continuing to investigate the cause of the crash.

It wasn’t until she was able to get a hold of her daughter-in-law that she received the good news of her son’s well-being. “Andy’s OK! I just remember her telling me that and he was trying to get home, along with thousands of others,� she said. Shoup said as a mother “it was a bad, bad day.� “All I could do was cry,� she said before she paused to collect herself. It wasn’t until she heard her son’s voice for herself that she was able to digest the true danger he was in on Sept. 11, 2001. “His voice was very shaky,� Shoup said. Shoup said her son took the elevator from the 40th floor of the 47-story building to the lobby, which was filled with people trying to flee. However, the doors were jammed with debris from the airplanes striking the Twin Towers. “He told me how they were all panicking trying to free the doors to get out of there – I can’t imagine what that must have felt like,� she said. The images of that day still haunt both her and her son. Shoup said it was the images of people jumping out of the windows to try and escape the destruction which have stayed etched in her mind, knowing her son witnessed that himself 11 years ago. “He was shaken — that was horrible,� she said of her son’s personal account. Troy Reflects and Remembers Mayor Michael Beamish was in the city of Zanesville at an education conference for the Miami County Education Service Center during Sept. 11, 2001. He had not yet been elected mayor of Troy. “I vividly remember 9/11,� said the mayor, as he watched the news unfold with a team of educators from around the state. “From that point on we saw the Twin Towers collapse — that is still vivid in my mind.� Like many of his generation, Beamish connects 9/11 with another point in the nation’s tragic history — President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. “I was in English class (during the Kennedy assassination) — it was so traumatic— just as tragic for an older person as it was for those who witnessed 9/11,� Beamish

you? A plane has hit a tower in the World Trade Center,’� Purke said. Purke said minutes later the taxi driver again pushed the window aside and said yet another plane had hit the World Trade Center towers. “So here (my wife) Karen and I are in Edinburgh and we of course haven’t a clue,� Purke said. They later spent a few hours watching the news on the BBC at the hotel’s living room area. During the Purkes’ 30 day stay in Scotland, they said they witnessed the country mourn with the Americans. “There was such an outpouring of support in Scotland,� Purke said. Purke said one gesture — the Scots placing the American flag above the Scottish flag prior to a rugby match — touched him. “Every war memorial there’d be small American flags and red, white and blue bouquets,� Purke said, noting 398 citizens also of Great Britain also perished in the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. “It wasn’t just us.� Purke shared how an entire country and large cities like Edinburgh across the Atlantic stopped and observed three-minutes of silence in observance of the attacks. “Everything stopped at 11 a.m. – you could hear a pin drop,� he said. “The traffic, which was heavy, just like in Times Square in New York City, came to a stand-still and you could hear the church bells at St. Giles – it was just silent — everybody there— the feeling was very emotional.� Keeping the Message Alive St. Patrick Catholic School observes 9/11 with a prayer service and a celebration with local first responders each year, along with its traditional “Freedom Cake.� “It’s a tradition for the kids and the firefighters and police officers serve the kids a slice of ‘Freedom Cake,’� said St. Patrick Catholic School’s Principal Cyndi Cathcart. Cathcart said the seventh grade students led the annual prayer service, in which several local firefighters, police officers and others attend each year. “It’s kind of a peaceful thing,� she said. “They prayer service is for us to remember who was lost on Sept. 11 and list in fighting for our country.� Cathcart says although many of her current students were in diapers or not even born, they still get a lesson in Sept. 11’s importance in the nation’s history. “The Freedom Cake helps us celebrate those who help us each and every day – it was very nice,� Cathcart said.

said. Yet, it’s through small town ceremonies and observances that keeps the focus on the nation’s first responders and their heroic efforts of that day 11 years ago. “Our first responders are here to save people, and 9/11 was a perfect example on how they step up every day,� Beamish said. “That day instilled a sense of patriotism, not only for Troy, but for the entire nation.� Americans Abroad Witness World Reaction to 9/11 Tuesday afternoon, Terry Purke — local historian and Miami Valley Veterans Museum trustee — stood in the small room of the museum, which houses the county’s own piece of the World Trade Center aftermath behind a clear box and stainless steel replicas of the towers that vanished from the city’s skyline 11 years ago. “It is the most popular exhibit,� Purke said of the piece, which was donated by the Port Authority officials to the museum last spring. “It’s a good draw and it gets people out here,� said Nelson Frantz, a Troy native who heard the news of the 9/11 attacks in Troy’s Wal-Mart parking lot and who was visiting the museum Tuesday. Purke said the museum is still in the process of creating an exhibit solely for the 9/11 piece and has acquired an American flag that was flown at a Marine base in Afghanistan. The flag was donated by a local Troy Marine who presented the flag to the mayor, who in turn bequeathed it to the museum. “That’s the thing that’s really, really neat about this museum,� Purke said. Frantz and Purke each shared their personal stories of their whereabouts on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001 as they stood in front of the piece from the World Trade Center at the museum, located at 107 W. Main St., Troy in the Masonic Temple building. “I heard it on the radio in the Wal-Mart parking lot. I couldn’t believe it was going on,� Frantz said. Like Beamish, Frantz also likened the news to JFK’s assignation, which he heard on the radio at the Allied Technologies coil room on Nov. 22, 1963. “It’s certain events like that which stay with you.� Purke shared how he heard the news while overseas in a taxi on the way to a small hotel in Edinburgh, Scotland. “The taxi driver pushed the window aside and said ‘You’re American aren’t

dation that controls the museum and memorial, on Monday called the memorial’s operating cost a necessity for security and other costs unique to hosting millions of visitors a year on the reborn site of two terror attacks, in 1993 and 2001.


NEW YORK (AP) — A debate over balancing the need to honor the memory of Sept. 11 with the enormous costs of running a memorial and museum at ground zero has been reawakened on the eve of the attacks’ 11th anniversary, as officials faced questions Monday over the project’s expected $60 million-a-year operating budget and an agreement paving the way for the museum’s completion was reached. The number comes on top of the $700 million construction cost of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. A report Sunday by The Associated Press noted that $12 million a year would be spent on security, more than the entire operating budgets of Gettysburg National Military Park and the monument that includes the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor.

$60 million-a-year figure. “Really?” said Pat Lee, a Walmart manager from Atlanta. But, she said, “I don’t think the money is too much. Because it’s important to keep alive the memory of what happened.” The memorial, the centerpiece of the rebuilt World Trade Center site, includes a serene, solemn memorial plaza, where waterfalls fill the fallen towers’ footprints, and a mostly underground museum that is to house such artifacts as the staircase workers used to escape the attacks. The plaza opened last year and has drawn 4.5 million visitors. The museum was to have been finished by Tuesday, but progress stopped amid a construction costs fight between the memorial foundation and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the agency that owns the trade center site. The Port Authority claimed the memorial foundation owed it $300 million for infrastructure and revised project costs; the foundation argued it was owed money because of project delays. The parties involved in the dispute said Monday they had reached an agreement. Their memorandum of understanding addresses issues including coordination of the site and general financial terms but doesn’t go into detail on specific levels of financing. The agreement outlines that the memorial will have six months’ operating expenses on hand as net working capital and that it will give the Port Authority a security deposit equal to six months’ utility expenses, but it doesn’t say what those figures are. Even so, it remains unclear how the foundation will cover the costs of running the museum, once it does open. So far, the foundation has been able to rely on corporate and individual donations and selling memorabilia. The annual expense was about $27.8 million last year, including four months of operating the memorial plaza, according to recently audited financial statements. But the expense is projected to jump to $60 million after the museum opens. The foundation plans to spend around $12 million a year on private security; operating

the waterfalls costs another $4.5 million to $5 million annually, the foundation says. Foundation officials haven’t responded to requests for information about other costs at the site. “Nobody is taking the money and building a hunting lodge for the trustees or having caviar and Champagne every night,” Bloomberg said when asked about the operating expenses after an unrelated news conference. “It’s a lot of money, but it costs that. Do you want a real budget, or do you want us to lie?” He said the costs could be covered by donations, by admission tickets to the museum (the price has not been set), but the memorial president has suggested it could be up to $20 and from federal aid. A proposal for up to $20 million a year in federal money has hit roadblocks. Senate sponsors Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, and New York Democrats Kirsten Gillibrand and Charles Schumer said through their offices Monday that they continued to press for the money. “This is hallowed ground, and it deserves to be treated like other national monuments,” Schumer said in an emailed statement. Sen. Tom Coburn, ROkla., has been blocking the measure. And he’s not relenting, spokesman John Hart said Monday. “He believes it is wrong to pay for this by borrowing $200 million from future generations and foreign governments when the federal government is rife with waste and duplication,” Hart said. The Sept. 11 memorial would be more costly to run than some of the other places where the nation its dead remembers National Arlington Cemetery, which receives 4 million visitors a year, costs $45 million annually, and Gettysburg National Military Park $8.4 million. But the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has an $81.2 million budget for this year, about $51 million of it expected in federal money and the rest from private donations and investment income. It has averaged about 1.8 million visitors annually over its 19 years. The memorial to the victims of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing derives its $3.3 million operating budget entirely from museum revenues, private fundraising and endowment earnings. “We run ours with a very lean staff because that’s how we can sustain our memorial and museum,” said Kari Watkins, executive director of the Oklahoma City National Memorial. The Sept. 11 museum has “a different philosophy and approach,” Watkins said, noting that she wasn’t critical of it. Some Sept. 11 victims’ family members are, however. To Jim Riches, a retired fire chief who lost his firefighter son at the trade center, the memorial and museum’s projected operating expenses reflect an overblown project that he feels is more tourist attraction than tribute. “We just want a simple memorial. They want to make this the Metropolitan Museum,” he said Monday. But other victims’ relatives see it as the understandable cost of honoring their loved ones in the ambitious spirit that surrounded the rebuilding in its early days. “For me, as a family member, yes, it’s a big number, but you know what? It was the worst attack in our country’s history. It reflects well what we as a nation will do, and can do. And I’m OK with it,” said Lee Ielpi, also a retired firefighter whose firefighter son died in the attacks. Ielpi is on the memorial foundation’s board and runs a visitors’ center financed by a separate nonprofit group.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Calgary (Alberta) Herald on the Summer Paralympics: The 2012 Summer Paralympics, opening in London, are at risk of straying from their noble origins forged in the very same city more than six decades ago. Ludwig Guttmann, keen to showcase the rehabilitation of soldiers after the Second World War, organized the precursor to the Paralympics — a multi-sport competition between hospitals to coincide with the 1948 London Games. The chairman of the 2012 London organizing committee, Sebastian Coe, went so far as to proclaim earlier this month, “We want to change public attitudes toward disability … .” Although the practice is banned, it’s common for Paralympians with spinal cord injuries to break their toes or even be jabbed with sharp needles in an effort to increase their blood pressure and improve athletic performance. Dr. Andrei Krassioukov, a Vancouver researcher, estimates about 30 percent of athletes at the London Paralympics could be involved in the nasty practice. Krassioukov has been working with the competitors for more than three decades and says that cardiovascular abilities must be added to the Paralympics’ system for classifying athletes. Otherwise, he said, competitors are at risk of life-threatening strokes or brain aneurysms. As well, if a ranking for cardiovascular abilities is added, athletes would be competing against others who perform at the same level as them, notes the doctor, reducing the temptation to elevate their blood pressure through such distasteful acts as twisting their testicles. It’s a common-sense solution that ensures athletes’ safety and dignity. China Daily, Beijing, on Mitt Romney’s China policy: By any standard, the U.S. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s China policy, as outlined on his official campaign website, is an outdated manifestation of a Cold War mentality. It endorses the “China threat” theory and focuses on containing China’s rise in the Asia-Pacific through bolstering the robust U.S. military presence in the region. And by stating that the U.S. “should be coordinating with Taiwan to determine its military needs and supplying them with adequate aircraft and other military platforms”, the Republican challenger has also gone so far as to provoke China over its sovereignty of the island. True, politicians tend to go back on their words after being elected, and it has become usual for U.S. politicians to play the China card in an election year. But Romney’s stance on China is still worrying, as it could poison the friendly atmosphere necessary to develop Sino-U.S. relations. Putting aside his remedies for the U.S.’ domestic problems and whether they would be effective or not, his China policy, if implemented, would cause a retrogression in bilateral ties and turn the region into a venue for open confrontation between China and the U.S. Compared to the “strategic pivot” policies U.S. President Barack Obama is implementing in the region, Romney’s recommendations are more pugnacious. As China and the US both have a stake in peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region, any responsible politician would refrain from making recommendations that might turn the two countries into rivals, rather than partners. It requires political vision as well as profound knowledge of Sino-US relations as a whole, to make sensible policy recommendations about what are widely recognized as the most important bilateral ties in the world. Romney apparently lacks both.

Wish me luck as I finish my marathon journey Whew. It has been a long journey and it isn’t even over yet. I can feel the energy rising in the air as other runners and I always can at this time of the year. We are approaching the United States Air Force Marathon and all the events that come with it. Let me start by saying good luck to everyone doing anything this weekend, whether it be the 5K, 10K, half or the full marathon! I am, in some ways, jealous yours is here already, yet and in some ways, I am thankful I still have time to prepare! The Air Force Half Marathon was my first half marathon. It was a great race — I met the great people of Team (G)race down there and started lifelong friendships. It was tough, but it was my first one and I did great. Fast forward a year to the present and I am 17 weeks into my 18-week training plan — with my good friend Tiffany Blount — to run my very first full marathon. While tough, tiring and somewhat painful, it has been a blast. Tiffany, our friend Betsy and I were laughing the other day about a book that she has been using to prepare for the 26.2 mile journey. We discussed the book and that it leaves out some of the major trials and

Katie Yantis Troy Daily News Columnist tribulations that runners go through to train for a marathon, some of which will not be discussed here. We were, however, laughing until our cores hurt. After mentioning some of them, Tiffany would say, “It didn’t tell you that in the book, it left that out!” My running buddy and I have faced almost every imaginable hurdle. While it has been tough, it has been rewarding and we always come out on the other side smiling. There have been runs that we added on a few tenths of a mile after frantically searching for a port-a-pot. There have been runs when the forecast is clear as glass, and we got stuck out in the middle of nowhere in a monsoon, with Tiffany crouched underneath a picnic table trying to save her phone. There have been runs that we have considered

“death marches” while we would run a half mile and walk a half mile for sometime because of either tightness, stitches or being just plain tired (funny enough, those were shorter runs). There have been a multitude of runs where we beat the sun up and thanked him for joining us. We — and everyone else that is preparing to run this weekend — have said “no” when we have wanted to say “yes,” whether it may have been to a drink or food. We have said “goodnight” when we have wanted to stay up with everyone and have fun in order to get up for an early long run. Finally, we all have pledged that no matter how we do it, we will finish. Team (G)race members, thank you for letting me be part of an amazing group. Tiffany, thank you for becoming one of my closest friends and welcoming me into your group of friends. Thank you for your support, your encouragement and your promises of never letting us fail. Your race is almost here and you are going to do great! To all runners this weekend and the next couple of months — as we all face our own races, you have done it. We are not runners because we run fast. We are runners because we run. We run because it frees us, fills us up

and gives us a purpose. As you join the thousands of runners that will be around you on your own start day, remember that. Let the excitement fill you up and fuel you (just don’t go out too fast) and remember why you are at that start line in the first place. For whatever reason it was, remember why you signed up for the race you will be running. Also, remember the reasons throughout the race you are running. It will help fuel you when you need a little more fuel. Team (G)race compiled some reasons to share to fuel us for our races. Maybe think about doing the same thing; have a reason for every mile and think about it until the new mile clicks over! Remember, running allows us to see things in life we wouldn’t normally see, no matter what it is. It allows us to remember how wonderful life it is, whether it’s from a sunrise, a sunset, deer crossing our path or a few simple raindrops falling on our faces. Good luck everyone. You will do great, you signed up, you trained, you will succeed. Remember, time doesn’t measure success! Katie Yantis appears every other Wednesday in the Troy Daily News

Loan • CONTINUED FROM 1 stained glass windows, located at the front of the building on West Main Street. One is currently restored, while two others are still in a glass shop undergoing restoration. The three in question for the upcoming legislation are located along Water Street. The previous reconstructive work was financed by a $20,000 Community Development Block Grant and private donations. City council decided not to include the Water Street windows because of limited funds available. Troy Development Director and Loan Officer Jim Dando said the second loan would be considered an extension of 19 years from the previous loan, increasing the repayment period to 47 years, running from 2014 to 2061. “The proposal is to

extend the loan in amount — number of windows — and amount of time for repayment,” Dando said. The Masonic Temple did not want to increase their semi-annual loan payments; therefore, Dando said the prospective loan repayment would begin following completion of the other loan. He recommended the committee approve the request because of the building’s significance to the city and the lifespan of the windows. With the prestigious building constructed in 1908, the stained glass windows have lasted more than 100 years. Mayor Michael Beamish noted that repairing the windows is a worthy investment for the city of Troy. “Most of us who have seen stained glass windows know that they appreciate, not depreciate, in value,” he said.

Word of the Week g

’day mates! And welcome to the Land Down Under. (That’s Australia to you yanks.) Australia is the only continent that’s also a country. It’s the smallest continent but the sixth largest country in the world. It’s called the Land Down Under because it lies entirely in the Southern Hemisphere. That means that when it’s summer here in North America, it’s winter in Australia. Its hottest month is January! Millions of years ago all of the continents belonged to one great landmass, but Australia is thought to have been the first

continent to separate from that landmass – about 200 million years ago – so its plants and animals developed differently from any other place in the world. You’ve probably seen pictures of kangaroos and koalas (Careful! Don’t call them “koala bears” because they’re really not bears at all!), but Australia is home to hundreds of other animals that don’t live anywhere else. Because of its location, the climate in Australia is very warm. Most of its population lives in cities along the southern coasts, where the weather is cooler. The interior of Australia, called the “outback,” is mostly desert, and very few people live there. People

who do live in the outback, mostly sheep and cattle farmers, may live 100 miles or more from their nearest neighbors. Outback children “go to school” by talking to teachers over two-way radios. Native Australians, now called Aborigines, have lived on the continent for at least 40,000 years. But today the great majority of people in Australia are descendants of the Irish and English immigrants who began settling there when Australia became a British prison colony in 1788. English is the official language.

In-law seems unwilling to help himself

Today: 5 p.m.: Community Bulletin Board 6 p.m.: Around Troy 6:30 p.m.: Health and Home

Dear Annie: My wife's sister and her husband moved in with my mother-in-law 30 years ago. Mom was the sole caregiver until age limited her ability, and then government aid allowed for home assistance. Mom supported them while my brother-in-law spent every dime on alcohol and toys. When Mom died two years ago, my sister-in-law ended up in a nursing home. My brother-in-law is in bankruptcy and has done nothing to plan for his wife's needs. My wife owns the house, although there is a lien on it from the state because of the aid my sister-in-law received. My wife and I cannot manage the responsibility or expense of maintaining the home, and we'd like to sell it and pay back the state. Four months ago, we informed my brother-in-law that we will be putting it up for sale. But he has not moved out. In fact, he says his lawyer told him he can drag it out for a year. As bad as my brother-in-law is, I still feel some compassion for him, although I do not feel we are responsible for him. His bad decisions and inability to plan are his own fault. I have held onto the letter informing him to vacate the house. I need help with licking the stamp so we can move on. — C. Dear C.: You can hire a lawyer to have your brother-in-law evicted more quickly, but it sounds as if you are reluctant to do that. However, unless you are willing to let him stay indefinitely, you both are only postponing the inevitable. Talk to your brother-in-law calmly, and find out what his future plans are. Ask how you can help him move into more manageable accommodations. Suggest he contact AA ( Do as much as you can to ease your conscience, but understand that there is only so much you can do if your brother-in-law is unwilling to help himself. Dear Annie: I'd like to see my children wait until marriage before having sex, but I realize that probably will not happen. I want to be able to advise my children correctly, so here are my questions: What is the age of consent? And if two 15-year-olds are intimate and caught, are both punished the same? Under the current system, a 17year-old boy could have consensual sex with his 15-year-old girlfriend and go to jail. The boy is branded for life as a sex offender. I think these laws are outdated and need to be modified. — Ellen in Florida Dear Ellen: The age of consent varies by state and falls somewhere between 16 and 18. You can find this information on the Internet simply by typing "age of consent by state" into your search engine. The punishment also varies by state and depends on the age of the older partner, the age of the younger partner, the number of years between them, etc. The underage partner is not punished, and if both kids are 15, neither is punished unless there was coercion. These laws were intended to protect children from predatory adults, although we agree that a distinction should be made for teenagers who have consensual sex with their boyfriends and girlfriends. Until then, however, please be sure your children understand the risks and urge them to be careful. Dear Annie: The letter from "Sad Wife" resonated with me. For years, my husband could not hold a decent job. I realized, after he was fired from his last job, that I didn't believe in him. When he asked me, with tears in his eyes, whether I would divorce him, I decided to have complete faith. From that point forward, I truly believed he would be successful. I stayed positive, encouraging and kept him motivated. Within months, he had two amazing job offers. Now he has a great career, and our relationship is stronger than ever. Whether you think you can or think you can't, you are right. — Proud Wife 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. MONDAY’S SOLUTION:


Heloise offers a guide to farmers markets Dear Heloise: I love to get up early on Saturday mornings to check out local farmers markets. Here are some hints I have learned through the years: • GO EARLY. It’s cooler earlier in the day, and you will have plenty of items to pick and choose from. • BRING REUSABLE BAGS. Reusable bags are better for the environment and keep sellers from handing out plastic bags. • BRING SMALL BILLS. Have plenty of dollar bills, fives and tens. Most items are under $10, and if you can give exact change, it is greatly appreciated.

Hints from Heloise Columnist Hope other readers can benefit from these hints. — A.R., via email I’m sure they will, and readers, if you have not been to one, you are missing out! Visit the website, put your city or ZIP code in and see where all the markets are in your area! Nothing beats a

tasty, homegrown fruit or veggie. — Heloise CONTROLLED COOKING Dear Heloise: I am writing regarding a prior column about safety and slow cookers. The reader places the slow cooker on the stove in case of something boiling over. I would like to add that I don’t place any appliance that emits heat near other appliances, where it can heat up and possibly cause the electric cord to burn or melt. I also don’t put the appliances near any moisture. My advice is to place the slow cooker on a cookie sheet with raised sides. This is how I use mine if I think it could pos-

sibly boil over. — Della W. in Houston EASY TOMATOES Dear Heloise: When tomatoes are in abundance, I fix a pot of boiling water. I dip the tomatoes in the water for 30 seconds, give or take, and peel the skin off. I chop them up and put them into paper cupcake holders, then freeze. — A Reader in Dallas Make sure to place the tomatoes in a freezer-safe bag or container before storing. Frozen tomatoes, once thawed, will not be like fresh tomatoes, but they are perfect for soups and stews. — Heloise



Wednesday, September 12, 2012













BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a perfect day to make longrange plans for vacations, your children, the entertainment world or the hospitality industry. Even play needs planning. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Serious family discussions about real estate or something having to do with securing your family in the future will take place today. Practical results need practical input. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) In one way, you feel lighthearted, but in another way, you feel rather seriousminded. (Go figure.) Fortunately, there are two of you, so you can take turns. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You will like doing financial planning today or devising a budget. You feel frugal and concerned about finances in your long-term future. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Today the Moon is in your sign, flirting with Jupiter and walking in step with Saturn. You feel optimistic about your future, but you’re not counting your chickens before they’re barbecued. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Behind-the-scenes research will go over well today. You’re in the frame of mind to quietly keep looking for the answers you seek. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Ask for advice from someone older or more experienced today. It’s always good to learn from the mistakes of others (and generally cheaper). SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) People in authority will be impressed by how sensible you are today. They might learn details about your private life, but don’t worry — all is well. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a good day to make long-range plans regarding travel, publishing, the media or anything that has to do with higher education. You’re taking a careful, sensible approach to everything. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You’re in the right frame of mind to clean up loose details of inheritances, insurance matters, taxes and debt. You won’t overlook anything, and you definitely will take a long-range view of things. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Someone close to you has received advice from someone older or more experienced. That’s why this person is prepared to do something to build for the future. You might want to listen. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You can accomplish a lot at work today because you’re in a serious frame of mind. You have focus, and you’re paying attention to detail. In addition, you’re looking down the road in your future and wondering what might happen. YOU BORN TODAY You are devoted. You have focus, concentration and stamina. Your approach to life is nononsense and practical. Your persevering attitude often demands a lot from others. Once you have your mind made up, you stick with it! Your diligence is the key to your success. This year, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will diminish or end in order to make room for something new. Birthdate of: Laura Secord, heroine; David Clayton-Thomas, singer; Jean Smart, actress. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Staudenmaier said the rainfall amounts put the region on pace to exceed the 4.5 inches of rain it normally gets in a year. National Weather Service meteorologist Scott Sukup said the Nevada showers weren’t part of the same storm system that drenched parts of Southern California. There, a thunderstorm that dropped more than the average annual rainfall on parts of the Coachella Valley in one night alone caused flooding at two mobile home parks, forced road closures and dampened an elementary school, officials said Tuesday. The early morning thunderstorm stalled for six to eight hours over Mecca and Thermal, two towns at the southern tip of the Coachella Valley 150 miles southeast of Los Angeles. Thermal is about eight miles from Indio, Calif., where the annual Coachella Music Festival is held. The storm dropped 5.51 inches of rain near Mecca and 3.23 inches of rain near Thermal, meteorologist Mark Moede said. The average annual rainfall in Thermal is just shy of 3 inches, he said. “That’s an amazing amount of rain,” Moede said. “It’s unusual anywhere to get a storm that sits stationary for five to eight hours. The fact that it occurred in the southern part of the Coachella Valley is even more unusual because it’s typically a very arid part of the country.” In Thermal, the downpour flooded the Desert Mobile Home Park better known as Duroville, causing the park to lose one of its wells and creating concerns about overflow from sewage ponds used to treat waste there, said Ray Smith, a Riverside County spokesman.

Storms cause flooding out West LAS VEGAS (AP) — Intense thunderstorms swept over parts of the Southwest on Tuesday, delaying flights and stranding motorists in the Las Vegas area and flooding two mobile home parks in Southern California. East of downtown Las Vegas, television news video showed yellow school buses inching slowly along roads after school in some neighbors and muddy brown water up to the lower window sills of stucco homes in others. A Twitter photo showed dozens of cars swamped by water up to their headlights in a parking lot outside the University of Nevada, Las Vegas sports arena. But after responding to numerous 911 calls, officials in Clark County, North Las Vegas, Henderson and Las Vegas said Tuesday there were no confirmed reports of serious injuries. The National Weather Service issued severe thunderstorm and flash-flood warnings before and after almost an inch of rain was reported at McCarran International Airport just before 2 p.m. Departures were postponed and arrivals were delayed after the airport ordered a stop on fueling operations during lightning strikes, airport spokeswoman Linda Healey said. National Weather Service meteorologist Michael Staudenmaier said more than 1.75 inches of rain were reported in downtown Las Vegas. Firefighters responded to more than 20 calls about people in stalled cars, county spokesman Dan Kulin said. A Las Vegas police helicopter was dispatched during the height of the storm to pluck several people from swamped vehicles on area roadways, Officer Bill Cassell said.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Wednesday, Sept. 12, the 256th day of 2012. There are 110 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 12, 1942, during World War II, a German U-boat off West Africa torpedoed the RMS Laconia, which was carrying Italian prisoners of war, British soldiers and civilians. The German crew, joined by other U-boats, began rescue operations. (On Sept. 16, the rescue effort came to an abrupt halt when the Germans were attacked by a U.S. Army bomber; some 1,600 people died

while more than 1,100 survived. As a result, U-boat commanders were ordered to no longer rescue civilian survivors of submarine attacks.) On this date: • In 1938, Adolf Hitler demanded the right of self-determination for the Sudeten Germans in Czechoslovakia. • In 1953, Massachusetts Sen. John F. Kennedy married Jacqueline Lee Bouvier in Newport, R.I. • In 1972, the situation comedy “Maude” premiered on CBS.

• In 1977, South African black student leader Steve Biko died while in police custody, triggering an international outcry. • Today’s Birthdays: Country singer George Jones is 81. Actor Ian Holm is 81. Actress Linda Gray is 72. Actor Joe Pantoliano is 61. Actress Rachel Ward is 55. Rock singer-musician Ben Folds (Ben Folds Five) is 46. Actor-comedian Louis C.K. is 45. Actor Paul Walker is 39. Country singer Jennifer Nettles (Sugarland) is 38. Singer Ruben Studdard is 34. Singeractress Jennifer Hudson is 31.

CAUTION Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable. If you have questions regarding scams like these or others, please contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office at (800)282-0515.

Joe Flacco threw for 299 yards in little more than three quarters, and the Ravens piled up yards with one big play after another. See Page 16.

What they needed Trojans open GWOC North with win BY COLIN FOSTER Associate Sports Editor Troy hasn’t had an easy road so far this season — and the schedule doesn’t get any easier. Yet, the defending Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division co-champion Trojans got exactly what they needed to open conference play Tuesday, handing a struggling Greenville team (0-8) a 3-0 loss to improve to 2-2-2 on the season.

Staff Reports DAYTON —A week ago at the Firebird Invitational, Troy bested Chaminade Julienne by nine shots on an 18-hole course. Tuesday, the Eagles were one shot better, topping the Trojans 155-156 on their home course at Miami Valley Country Club. “That’s the game of golf. We beat them handily at NCR then lost to them by a stroke today,” Troy coach Ty Mercer said.

Troy offense obliterates Green Wave Staff Reports


GREENVILLE — Nothing could stop the Troy Trojans Tuesday. Troy’s offense spread the ball around, with three Trojans tallying double digits in kills, opening up Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division play on the road with a 3-1 victory at Greenville, 25-12, 25-15, 23-25, 25-16. Lauren Freed had 15 kills and three digs, Emily Moser added 12 kills and Jenna Selby

had 10 kills and six aces to lead the onslaught. Setter Mackenzie Rice dished out 40 assists. “We were very well balanced,” Troy coach Michelle Owen said. “We played great in Games 1 and 2. In Game 3, we had more errors than we should have.” In the third game, though, the Green Wave got some help from some calls — balls hitting the antennae yet still being ruled in, players that were in the net but not whistled for it and more —

but the Trojans rebounded and finished things off in the fourth. “The girls were just finding ways to win,” Owen said. “It’s good to get the first league win. We served tough and had a lot of aces.” Jennifer Monnier added eight kills, Jillian Ross had three kills and a block, Leah Selby had two aces and three digs, Abby Brinkman had seven digs and three aces and Cassie Rice had 20 digs and three aces. Thursday, Troy (8-3, 1-0) hosts Butler — which swept

Not even close Bengals rocked by Ravens on Monday Night Football CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals saw it as a chance to show a national audience that they are ready to take a place among the AFC North’s elites. Uh-uh. Not even close. Not for now, anyway. The Bengals were shredded in just about every way Monday night during a 44-13 loss in Baltimore that matched the worst opening-game defeat in franchise history. Joe Flacco threw for 299 yards in little more than three quarters, and the Ravens piled up yards with one big play after another. Stunning stat: Baltimore ran 58 plays and 20 of them went for at least 10 yards. “It was opening night, we were on national TV and we laid an egg,� running back BenJarvis Green-Ellis said. That egg was pretty scrambled, too. The Bengals (0-1) were ready for the Ravens’ nohuddle offense, prepared to see a lot of deep throws, expecting Ray Rice to get the ball when Baltimore needed a big play. They saw it all coming and couldn’t stop any of it. “There were no busted coverages or anything like that that I can remember,� cornerback Leon Hall said. “We just got outplayed.� It was especially troubling for a team that thought it was ready to take the next step.

The Bengals also lost an opener by 31 points in 1991, a 45-14 defeat in Denver. “Plain and simple, we got beat in all phases of the game,� middle linebacker Rey Maualuga said. “There’s no way else to put it. We just flat-out got beat and they took advantage of our mistakes, our turnovers, penalties. It’s just something that we have to learn from.� The defense wasn’t the only issue. An offensive line that’s already lost two starters to injury had trouble protecting Andy Dalton, who was sacked four times, fumbled once and threw an interception under pressure that Ed Reed returned 34 yards for a touchdown. Left guard Travelle Wharton tore up a knee during the preseason. Center Kyle Cook severely hurt his right ankle during the last preseason game, prompting the Bengals to sign free agent Jeff Faine, who hadn’t been with a team since March. Rookie Kevin Zeitler is starting at right guard. The Bengals expect to be much better on offense this season, now that Dalton and receiver A.J.

Reds rest Chapman, top Pirates 5-3

■CONTINUED FROM 15 ball out of their zone for most of the game. Still, Phillips saw areas that needed improvement as the Trojans prepare to embark on a brutal stretch of games — which includes a date with GWOC North Division rival, and co-champion, Butler on Sept. 18. “Defensively, we have to be able to track players better,� Phillips said. “There were times I saw we didn’t track players. We didn’t go after players and stay tight on them. We have to do a better job, especially in the middle. Our outside backs did a decent job, but our middle is where we have to be really steady. We have to control that middle. Through the middle is where we may hit trouble down the road, so we have to be able to recognize players off the ball.� Greenville goalie Sam Bowers made a great play seven minutes into the game, denying Daniel Carey on a breakaway attempt. But less than a minute later, Dakota Hampton delivered a touch pass to a streaking Carey, who stuck the ball in the back of the net to put the Trojans up 1-0. Troy went up 2-0 when Steven Williams scored with 10:55 remaining in the opening half, collecting a deflection in front of the goal and burying a shot. Troy’s defense allowed just one shot on goal in the first half. Greenville’s first good scoring chance of the game came with 24 minutes left in the second half when the ball slipped by the Trojan defense, allowing Greenville’s Nicolas Benenga to get an open look. But Troy goalie Matthew Carr, who had been eagerly waiting for a challenging save all night, was ready, leaping to deflect the ball right to keep the score at 2-0.


Troy’s Ian Stutz crosses the ball Tuesday against Greenville. A penalty shot was awarded at the eightminute mark, giving Greenville a shot to cut the deficit to one. Carr, though, was was once again up for the task, jumping and extending his hand to push the shot high of the goal. Following that, the Trojans got an insurance goal courtesy of Austin Deaton — who scored on a direct kick with 6:48 to play in the game. Troy plays West Carrollton at home on Thursday. After that, the Trojans begin a stretch that includes four North Division opponents in their next seven games. Newton 2, Troy Christian 1 Newton — which is tied for eighth in the area in the current MVSSCA poll edged out Troy — Christian 2-1 Tuesday in a makeup game from Friday night. Daniel Vance posted both goals for the Indians (3-1-1). The first came on an assist from Johnny White, and Austin Flanery assisted on the insurance goal.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Mike Leake pitched seven innings, had a pair of hits and scored on a dash home off a wild pitch Tuesday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-3 victory over the fading Pittsburgh Pirates. Both teams were recovering from their 5-hour, 22minute game on Monday night, won by the Reds 4-3 in 14 innings. Leake (8-9) gave up nine hits, including Alex Presley’s solo homer and pinch-hitter Gaby Sanchez’s two-run shot. Leake singled and eventually scored during a decisive three-run second inning off Kevin Correia (10-9) aided by an error. Brandon Phillips hit Correia’s first pitch of the game for a homer and doubled home another run. Scott Rolen added a solo shot. The Pirates have lost

five in a row and 22 out of 31, falling out of contention in the NL Central. They trail the Reds by a seasonhigh 13 games. The division leaders will get by the next few days without closer Aroldis Chapman, who has a tired pitching shoulder. He walked three of the five batters he faced on Monday night, when his velocity was down from 100 mph to the mid-90s. Jonathan Broxton, acquired from Kansas City at the trade deadline, assumes the role. He pitched the ninth, allowing a hit, for his first save in three tries with the Reds. He had 23 saves with the Royals. Rolen was back after being out of the starting lineup the last five games with a sore back. He hit his seventh homer of the season in the eighth inning, his first since Aug. 15.
