Four detectives and an FBI agent provided no testimony during a suppression hearing in com- online advertisements. Acting on a previously filed mon pleas court Wednesday after a judge granted a stay in a case motion for continuance and a stay involving an adoptive father of the proceedings against

Kenneth H. Brandt, 40, of Troy, Judge R o b e r t Lindeman ordered a stay in the case until a forensic evaluation BRANDT can be completed to determine whether or not the accused child molester is fit to stand trial.

Brandt, who was scheduled for an Oct. 2 trial, was arrested in late February and subsequently indicted on 31 counts of rape, 11 of which involve a victim under the age of 10 with each carrying a penalty of between 15 years to life in prison. The charges stem for sexual abuse that allegedly took place between Dec. 1, 2012, and Feb. 24.


France stepped up security Wednesday at its embassies across the Muslim world after a French satirical weekly revived a formula that it has already used to capture attention: Publishing crude, lewd caricatures of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. Wednesday’s issue of the provocative satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, whose offices were firebombed last year, raised concerns that France could face violent protests like the ones targeting the United States over an amateur video produced in California that have left at least 30 people dead.

Water rate hike proposed Faced with a shortfall in meeting the costs of operating the water system, Covington Village Administrator Mike Busse has recommended to Covington Village Council that it enact a water rate increase to generate the money needed to stop the practice of subsidizing the system with money from other funds. Busse made the recommendation during a special workshop Monday night on utility rates held prior to the regular council meeting. He gave a presentation on why the rate increase is needed.

Last year we had two trucks filled up with furniture.” Each week, two schools are selected to compete to see who can accumulate the greatest weight in donations, to benefit Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley. The organization’s mission is to support and encourage those with disabilities and other needs in the community. Goodwill attendants Carmen Davis, Morgan Mason and Cody Rowlands have been available throughout the week to unload vehicles and give receipts for tax credits. A donation trailer is set up in the parking lot.

Attendant hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday and 9 a.m. to noon Friday. The donations will be weighed at noon Friday, with the winning school receiving a $200 scholarship from Mid-USA Credit Union, to be given to a student. At the end of the campaign, the overall winning school will receive an additional $700 scholarship. More than 467,000 pounds of clothing and household items in addition to 45 vehicle have been collected over the past five years, with 32 area high school schools participating.

Gas prices back down under $4 Staff Report According to the Associated Press, gas prices in Ohio have slipped a bit further below $4 after a sharp increase last week. The average price for a gallon of regular gas was $3.85 in Monday’s survey 6 from auto club AAA, the Oil

MIAMI COUNTY Price Information Service and Wright Express. On Wednesday, local gas stations in Troy posted prices ranging from $3.79 to $3.89. The average was $3.76 a week ago, before a spike

pushed prices closer to the $4 mark. At this time last year, the average was about $3.52. The factors contributing to higher fuel costs lately include disruptions caused by Hurricane Isaac and problems at Midwestern refineries. AAA said other factors include high crude-

oil prices and tight supplies in some places ahead of the switch from the gasoline blend used for summer to the winter blend. The national average Monday was $3.86, up from $3.60 a year ago. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Tax penalty to hit nearly 6M uninsured people WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly 6 million Americans significantly more than first estimated will face a tax penalty under President Barack Obama’s health overhaul for not getting insurance, congressional analysts said Wednesday. Most would be in the middle class. The new estimate amounts to an inconvenient fact for the administration, a reminder of what critics see as broken promises. The numbers from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office are 50 percent higher than a previous projection by the same office in 2010, shortly after the law passed. The earlier estimate found 4 million people would be affected in 2016, when the penalty is fully in effect. That’s still only a sliver of the population, given that more than 150 million people currently are covered by employer plans. Nonetheless, in his first campaign for the White House, Obama pledged not to raise taxes on individuals making less than $200,000 a year and couples making less than $250,000. And the budget office analysis found that nearly 80 percent of those who’ll face the penalty would be making up to or less than five times the federal poverty level. Currently that would work out to $55,850 or less for an individual

and $115,250 or less for a family of four. Average penalty: about $1,200 in 2016. “The bad news and broken promises from Obamacare just keep piling up,� said Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, who wants to repeal the law. Starting in 2014, virtually every legal resident of the U.S. will be required to carry health insurance or face a tax penalty, with exemptions for financial hardship, religious objections and certain other circumstances. Most people will not have to worry about the requirement since they already have coverage through employers, government programs like Medicare or by buying their own policies. A spokeswoman for the Obama administration said 98 percent of Americans will not be affected by the tax penalty and suggested that those who will be should face up to their civic responsibilities. “This (analysis) doesn’t change the basic fact that the individual responsibility policy will only affect people who can afford health care but choose not to buy it,� said Erin Shields Britt of the Health and Human Services Department. “We’re no longer going to subsidize the care of those who can afford to

buy insurance but make a choice not to buy it.� The budget office said most of the increase in its estimate is due to changes in underlying projections about the economy, incorporating the effects of new federal legislation, as well as higher unemployment and lower wages. The Supreme Court upheld Obama’s law as constitutional in a 5-4 decision this summer, finding that the insurance mandate and the tax penalty enforcing it fall within the power of Congress to impose taxes. The penalty will be collected by the IRS, just like taxes. The budget office said the penalty will raise $6.9 billion in 2016. The new law will also provide government aid to help middleclass and low-income households afford coverage, the financial carrot that balances out the penalty. Nonetheless, some people might still decide to remain uninsured because they object to government mandates or because they feel they would come out ahead financially even if they have to pay the penalty. Health insurance is expensive, with employer-provided family coverage averaging nearly $15,800 a year for a family and $4,300 for a single plan. Indeed, insurance industry experts say the federal penalty may be too low. The Supreme Court also allowed

FDA urged to set standards for arsenic levels in rice WASHINGTON (AP) — The Food and Drug Administration may consider new standards for the levels of arsenic in rice as consumer groups are calling for federal guidance on how much of the carcinogen can be present in food. So far, FDA officials say they have found no evidence that suggests rice is unsafe to eat. The agency has studied the issue for decades but is in the middle of conducting a new study of 1,200 samples of grocery-store rice products short and long-grain rice, adult and baby cereals, drinks and even rice cakes to measure arsenic levels. Rice is thought to have arsenic in higher levels than most other foods because it is grown in water on the ground, optimal conditions for the contaminant to be

absorbed in the rice. There are no federal standards for how much arsenic is allowed in food. Arsenic is naturally present in water, air, food and soil in two forms, organic and inorganic. According to the FDA, organic arsenic passes through the body quickly and is essentially harmless. Inorganic arsenic the type found in some pesticides and insecticides can be toxic and may pose a cancer risk if consumed at high levels or over a long period. How much organic and inorganic arsenic rice eaters are consuming, and whether those levels are dangerous, still remains to be seen. FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg says consumers shouldn’t stop eating rice, though she does encourage a diverse diet just in case. “Our advice right now is that consumers should continue to eat a balanced diet that includes a wide variety of grains not only for good nutrition but also to minimize any potential consequences from consuming any one particular food,� she said. The agency on Wednesday released 200 of an expected 1,200 samples after the magazine Consumer Reports released its own study and called for federal standards for arsenic in rice. The FDA will not complete its study until the end of the year, Hamburg said, and cannot draw any conclusions from the results until then. Both studies show relatively similar levels of arsenic in rice. The FDA’s analysis, including 200 samples, showed average levels of 3.5 to 6.7 micrograms of inorganic arsenic per serving. Consumer Reports, with

223 samples, found levels up to 8.7 micrograms. That is roughly equivalent to one gram of arsenic in 115,000 servings of rice. It is almost impossible to say how dangerous these levels are without a benchmark from the federal government. Consumer Reports uses New Jersey’s drinking water standard a maximum of 5 micrograms in a liter of water as comparison because it is one of the strictest in the country. But it is unclear how accurate it is to compare arsenic levels in water and arsenic levels in rice most people consume more water than rice, so drinking water standards may need to be tougher. It is because of this uncertainty that consumer groups have urged the FDA to set a standard. Urvashi Rangan of Consumer Reports says the group is not trying to alarm rice eaters and parents feeding their children rice, but to educate them so they can diversify their diets. Consumers should be more protected since arsenic is a known carcinogen and could build up in the body over time, she said. “It doesn’t make sense not to have standards for rice,� she said. The Consumer Reports study found higher levels of arsenic in brown rice than white rice, a result of how the two different types are processed. It also found higher levels in rice produced in Southern U.S. states than in rice from California or Asia. Rice growers jumped on the report. A statement from the industry group USA Rice Federation said that U.S. rice growers do not use pesticides with arsenic. “We understand that ‘arsenic’ is an alarming word, but we believe it is important for consumers to know that arsenic is a naturally occurring element in our air, water, rocks and soil,� the group said in a statement. “This is how plants uptake arsenic. As a result, it’s always been in the food supply and is in many healthy foods that are consumed by billions of people every day.�

individual states to opt out of a major Medicaid expansion under the law. The Obama administration says it will exempt low-income people in states that opt out from having to comply with the insurance requirement. Many Republicans still regard the insurance mandate as unconstitutional and rue the day the Supreme Court upheld it. However, the idea for an individual insurance requirement comes from Republican health care plans in the 1990s. It’s also a central element of the 2006 Massachusetts health care law signed by then-GOP Gov. Mitt Romney, now running against Obama and promising to repeal the federal law. Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said Wednesday the new report is more evidence that Obama’s law is a “costly disaster.� “Even more of the middle-class families who President Obama promised would see no tax increase will in fact see a massive tax increase thanks to Obamacare,� she said. Romney says insurance mandates should be up to each state. The approach seems to have worked well in Massachusetts, with virtually all residents covered and dwindling numbers opting to pay the penalty instead.

Mr. Brandt all contrary to the Sixth Amendment.� The suppression hearing and Brandt’s trial will be stayed until the evaluation is completed and submitted to the prosecution and court, Lindeman said. The children involved in the case were 9, 10, and 12 when the alleged sexual abuse first began. Brandt was arrested in February after authorities raided Brandt’s home in Troy and confiscated several items, including computers and media devices. All three of the children are currently staying with relatives and are under the supervision of Miami County Children Services. Also arrested and charged as a result of the child sex ring was Jason M. Zwick, 30, of Beavercreek, who remains jailed on a $500,000 bond. Zwick is charged with three counts of rape. His case is pending in common pleas court, too, after his Oct. 16 trial was continued earlier this month due to a prosecution witness being unavailable. A new trial date has yet to be scheduled. Like Brandt, Zwick, who has pleaded not guilty, also is seeking to have evidence suppressed at his upcoming trial related to items recovered from his home following search warrants executed in February and another in March. Police say Zwick contacted Brandt through a popular classified advertising website regarding sex with children and later had sexual contact with some of the juveniles.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP San Francisco Chronicle on federal income tax rates: The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service has issued a startling new report on income tax rates. After analyzing the past 65 years of taxes, the service has come to a simple conclusion: there is no “conclusive evidence” that lower tax rates lead to economic growth. What it did find, however, is an association between lower tax rates and “the increasing concentration of income at the top of the income distribution.” In other words, lower tax rates don’t do anything to create jobs, but they sure do help the rich get a lot richer. It’s good to see hard evidence for the suspicions that an increasing number of Americans feel about the last several decades. These suspicions are twofold: one, that a middle-class life is getting harder and harder to achieve or maintain (there’s new evidence for that, too, courtesy of U.S. Census data released recently that showed a substantial drop in income for people earning between $20,263 and $62,434), and two, that lower taxes haven’t created very many jobs.

Four of them already have died at the hands of Islamic extremists who attacked the U.S. embassy in Benghazi recently. U.S. officials are investigating whether the assault and rioting at the American embassy in Cairo were part of a campaign of violence organized by Muslim terrorist groups. If so, it will be nothing new. Terrorists such as those in al-Qaida have made scores of attacks and claimed hundreds of victims throughout the world since Sept. 11, 2001. But the military response to violence in Libya must be a limited one. Even if the United States had the military resources to send such forces to embassies in every country where Islamic terrorists might attack, the sovereign nations involved would not tolerate such presences for long. Traditionally, it has been the responsibility of countries hosting embassies from other nations to keep them and their personnel safe. There are indications the Libyan government attempted to do so in Benghazi, but failed in the face of an enormous, well-armed mob. Still, U.S. policy should rest on a demand that countries where we have embassies take their safety seriously. If that is not done, the embassies should be closed. They are staffed by diplomats, not soldiers, who should not be exposed to unnecessary danger.


Thank you for your support To the Editor: We are so blessed to work and live in the community of Troy! For the past 10 years, the Troy Rec has offered the Summer Lunch Buddies program to pair teen and adult volunteers with elementary students to read and eat lunch for six weeks each summer. Without the tremendous community support we receive, this program could not continue to thrive year after year. The Duke Foundation provides the majority of the funding, along with the generous support of the Troy Foundation, and we want to thank them for all they do to

make this program possible. In addition, the Troy Lunch Club and Ruth Scott are instrumental in providing the lunches for 50 children and 25 volunteers each day and we appreciate everything they do behind the scenes to make this operate smoothly. We are also indebted to Goodrich and SEW Eurodrive for their corporate sponsorship and the countless number of volunteers they send each day to make a difference in the lives of these kids. In addition, we would like to thank: King's Island, Corigraphics, Troy Land Development, Los Pitayos, Oakley Chiropractic, Kerber Sheet Metal, Newport Aquarium, Meijer, Altrusa, Primary Eyecare Associates,

Baird Funeral Home, Dungan and LeFevre, Little Caesar's, Sonic, All Occasion Balloon and Gifts, BW’3, Oinkadoodlemoo, Skyline, East of Chicago, Troy Fish and Game, William and Boss Jeweler, Victoria Theatre, Jumpy's and Winan's for monetary contributions and prize donations. Finally, we want to say thanks to the 90 volunteers who gave up their lunch hour for a week or more to come and read with these kids. The difference you've made in the lives you've touched will be felt long after the summer is gone.

The worst thing about football is the fans This past Saturday I thought it would be a good idea to attend an Ohio State football game — unfortunately for me, there were more than 100,000 people who had the same idea. I’ve spent much of my adult life locked away at sporting events in the press box — a seething cauldron of the untamed, unwashed masses (I should know — they once elected me their king). In any event, I’ve spent very little time out amongst the common fans. Now I remember why. While the typical sports press box is high on pretension and low on hygiene, at least you don’t have to worry about watching the people in front of you make out with one another for four quarters (thank God). Here’s the problem with attending sporting events these days — for three hours, you are sitting in close proximity to people who, at one point or another, make you question not only your devotion to your team, but your devotion to the continuation of the human race in general. For starters, they always manage to shoehorn more than 100,000 people into Ohio

David Fong Troy Daily News Executive Editor Stadium — a venue that doesn’t actually seat more than 95,000 comfortably. They do this for two reasons — so they can make more money and so all the fans get really agitated and scream even louder for the home team. That means you spend most of your afternoon sitting in the lap of the person next to you — which is fine, provided you actually know that person. When that person is a complete stranger, however, it presents a whole new set of problems. Fortunately, we just happened to be surrounded by an entire fleet of football experts. All of these people knew more about football than not only the players, but the coaching staff as well. Not only did they know much more about football than

everyone else, they felt the need to share that deep knowledge of football. Constantly. Truth be told, I’m not even sure why The Ohio State University paid millions of dollars to Urban Meyer — who has, you know, won two national championships — to come in and coach the team. They could have just asked the knowledgeable fans in the stands. You know, the same ones who kept asking why “Ohio State didn’t throw it in the end zone on every play so it would score more touchdowns.” Things were further complicated by the fact my wife and I were seated right next to the University of California at Berkeley fans. Generally speaking, it’s never fun sitting next to a group of people who are cheering for the other team to begin with, but things were made even worse by the fact Cal actually made it a close game — Cal, for crying out loud! They are known for their hippies and their computer geeks — not their football. The closer the game became, the more obnoxious their fans got. It was like living out a scene from “Revenge of the Nerds.” And speaking of R-rated

movies, there was the couple seated directly in front of us who clearly thought they were extras in one. They pretty much spent all four quarters making out with one another. My wife and I have a pretty simple rule when it comes to public displays of affection — we don’t do it. This is partly because we are married and don’t believe in public or private displays of affection, but also partly because we know nobody else wants to see two people making out. This couple, on the other hand, had very little regard for the people around them. Given that it was an Ohio State game, I’m pretty sure they were trying to make their own version of “50 Shades of Scarlet and Gray.” I think from now on, I’m going to sell my tickets the next time I get them. I can sit on my couch by myself, I can change the channel when commercials come on, I don’t have to listen to any football “experts” and, most of all, I don’t have to make out with anyone.

Official recommends water rate increase BY TOM MILLHOUSE Ohio Community Media Faced with a shortfall in meeting the costs of operating the water system, Covington Village Administrator Mike Busse has recommended to Covington Village Council that it enact a water rate increase to generate the money needed to stop the practice of subsidizing the system with money from other funds. Busse made the recommendation during a special workshop Monday night on utility rates held prior to the regular council meeting. He gave a presentation on why the rate increase is needed. According to the village administrator, the village currently has a capital debt service of $271,800 per year ($242,800 for the water plant building and $29,000 for the Walnut Street reconstruction project). He said the annual debt payment breaks down to $20.59 a month per water customer and only $17 per month is now collected for the capital charge. Busse recommended the village increase the capital charge by $3.50 per month and also collect $4 per month for water meter maintenance. “That’s the cash register of your system,” Busse said in reference to insuring the water meters, many of which are aging, are working properly. To cover those costs, Busse recommended an increase of $7.50 per month to the base rate and 24 cents per thousand gal-

COVINGTON lons of water for the first 6,000 gallons of usage. “The increase for an average family of four would be about $9 per month,” Busse said. “The goal is to get us to the break-even point,” Busse said. “We’ve got to be able to pay our bills. For several years we have been spending more than we collect,” he said. “You have been subsidizing the water system out of other funds.” The proposed rate increase will be given first reading at the Oct. 1 council meeting, with possible adoption at the Nov. 5 meeting. If approved, the increase would go into effect Jan. 1 and would be reflected in utility bills village customers receive in February. Busse presented council members with a chart showing how the village water and sewer rates stack up against other area communities. Based on 7,480.5 gallons a month usage, Covington customers currently pay $746 per year and would pay $881 if the proposed rate increase is approved. According to Busse, water and sewer rates for other area communities with the same usage are: Ansonia, $704; Troy, $705; Tipp City, $741; Pleasant Hill, $769; Bradford, $967; Piqua, $967; Arcanum, $1,243; and Russia, $1,476. In addition to covering the cost of the current debt service, Busse said additional funds will be needed in the future for water and sewer maintenance proj-

ects, such as taking steps to reduce stormwater infiltration into sewer lines, village water tower maintenance, replacement of aging and undersized water lines and replacement of the filter media at the water plant. “What I am proposing is 5 percent annual increases for five years,” Busse said, noting the additional water and sewer bill adjustments, if approved, wouldn’t go into effect until January 2014. Busse said it’s also important to conduct a complete rate study to determine more precisely the future system needs and the funds required to pay for the improvements. However, he said the rate study would be very entailed and could take a long time to complete. “We can’t wait a year and a half to do a rate study,” Busse said, noting that if the rates aren’t raised soon “we could be in deep trouble. This is something we have put off as long as we can.” “I’m not proposing collecting a dollar more than we need,” Busse said, adding that if a study concludes that the rates should be lower, he would be glad to recommend an adjustment. “No one in this room wants to raise rates,” said Councilman Marc Basye, who noted that if the rates aren’t raised it could prevent the village from receiving federal grants for utility improvements. “We need to be proactive,” said Mayor Ed McCord. “By being proactive, we’re ahead of the game.”

Cronkite editor Green dies at 84 NEW YORK (AP) — Ashbel Green, a versatile and respected editor at Alfred A. Knopf who persuaded Gabriel Garcia Marquez to switch publishers, worked on Walter Cronkite’s memoir and a foreign policy book by President George H.W. Bush and helped discover the crime classic “The Friends of Eddie Coyle,” has died. He was 84. The publisher announced Wednesday that Green died Tuesday night while dining with his wife, Elizabeth Osha, near their home in Stonington, Conn. The cause of death was not immediately given. Known to his friends as “Ash,” Green was an oldschool publishing man who preferred a typewriter to computers and was praised by The New York Observer as “an exemplar of elegance, decency and seriousness.” Green acquired and edited

hundreds of books and as managing editor at Knopf looked through the endless unsolicited manuscripts known as the “slush pile.” “Ash was a prodigious talent, one of the most significant editorial figures in modern publishing, famous for his breadth of reading and grasp of history,” Knopf president Sonny Mehta said in a statement. “Many of us had the good fortune of learning a great deal about the business from him. He was a beloved colleague, and his contributions to our company an esteemed editorial legacy are part of what still define us today.” The son of a newspaperman and descendant of Presbyterian ministers, Green was born in New York in 1928.

State officials moved Donald Palmer from death row in Chillicothe to the death house in Lucasville in southern Ohio on Wednesday, the day before he is to be executed by lethal injection. The 43-year-old was convicted of aggravated murder for shooting two strangers along a Belmont County road in eastern Ohio on May 8, 1989. Both victims were married fathers. Palmer’s attorney said Wednesday that he doesn’t plan to file any other appeals and expects the execution to proceed. Palmer also decided not to request mercy from the Ohio Parole Board, which can recommend clemency for a condemned inmate to the governor.

Columbia. He worked as publicity director of Prentice Hall, developed a love for editing and was hired by Knopf in 1964 as managing editor. Nine years later, he was promoted to vice president and senior editor and remained in those positions until his retirement, in 2007. In the early 1970s he came upon a story about the Irish-American underworld in Boston, written by an Assistant U.S. Attorney General George V. Higgins. Although put off by the twopage cover letter “George sometimes tended to garrulity,” Green later told the alumni publication Columbia Magazine he looked through the submission, liked it and paid $2,000 for a novel now considered a masterpiece and made into a film starring Robert Mitchum. At an elite publishing house that included literary editor Gary Fisketjon and poetry editor Harry Ford, Green had a special interest in politics and history. He edited the Pulitzer Prizewinning “Founding Brothers” by Joseph Ellis, who in the introduction cited Green’s reputation as “the salt of the earth.” He acquired many works by Cold War dissidents, among them Andrei Sakharov’s memoir.

Just as summer demands salads, fall calls for casseroles. The combination of a chill in the air and the chaos of kids heading back to school means many families are looking for easy, warming one-pot meals that come together quickly and with little mess or fuss. So when we created this recipe, we kept things simple. In fact, to cut down on mess and time, it is mixed right in the dish it is baked in. We also turned to that ultimate workhorse of the weeknight kitchen the rotisserie chicken. Add a few vegetables and a creamy sauce made from pantry staples, and dinner’s on the table in no time. Some folks may turn up their noses at using creamof-anything soup in a casserole. But busy families have been turning to it for decades for three simple reasons it works, it’s delicious and it’s effortless.

Doubts about implications follow strike CHICAGO (AP) — Mayor Rahm Emanuel secured an extension of Chicago’s school day and empowered principals to hire the teachers they want. Teachers were able to soften a new evaluation process and win some job protections. As students returned to the classroom Wednesday following a seven-day teachers strike, both sides found reasons to celebrate victory. But for all the rhetoric, the wider effects of the walkout were difficult to gauge, and experts said the walkout might not resonate far beyond Chicago, a union-built city where organized labor still wields considerable power. “I think a lot of what went on to a certain extent is peculiar to Chicago,� said Martin Malin, director of the Institute for Law and the Workplace at the Kent College of Law in Chicago. A report that characterized the relationship between the teachers union and Emanuel as “toxic� was on point, Malin said. Now that a deal has been reached, the challenge for both parties “is to seize that and work on rally transforming the relationship.� Everyone involved in the dispute emerged with an achievement to trumpet: Teachers said the strike sparked an important national conversation about school reform. Union activists said it provided inspiration for

Mays Academy, Wednesday morning after Chicago teachers voted to suspend their first strike in 25 years. public employee unions that have lost ground nationally. And Emanuel declared it a boon for students trapped in failing schools. American Federation of President Randi Teachers Weingarten said the strike showed that teachers want a voice in improving schools rather than shouldering the blame for those that are failing. “The bottom line is ‌ you had teachers standing up for what

they need to teach and what students need to learn,� Weingarten said. But in lots of other places, the circumstances that led to Chicago’s walkout don’t apply. For one thing, many states forbid strikes by teachers and other public-employee unions, Malin said. Thomas Hatch, a professor Columbia University’s Teachers College, said the strike focused attention on new teacher evalua-

tions and fears of closing neighborhood schools. But he agreed that some factors, such as the personalities involved, are unlikely to affect other districts. Meanwhile, more than Chicago children 350,000 returned to classes, restoring the routines of families whose daily lives were upended when youngsters suddenly had nowhere to go during the day. Iquasai Carpenter, a home health care worker with two chil-

dren in elementary school, said her kids did homework packets at home during the strike. “They missed school. They missed their teachers. They missed their friends,� she said as she dropped them off for class. She sympathized with teachers and said they deserved pay raises. She didn’t like the idea of the new evaluations that take student test scores into account, but she was glad the union negotiated down what percentage would be factored in. If students don’t progress, she said, it isn’t always the teachers’ fault. The nation’s last big-city teachers strike was Detroit in 2006. Chicago had not seen teachers walk out since 1987. “It’s been a really long time since a major urban district went on strike,� said Christine Campbell, a policy director at the University of Washington’s Center on Reinventing Public Education. “Everyone’s paying attention to try and get some lessons out of it.� She said the improvements will make the mayor look good in the long run and demonstrated that unions still have relevance. She wasn’t sure, though, that such a strike could be replicated in other cities, something she attributed to the local figures involved and their leadership. “The personalities are spiciest in Chicago right now,� she said.

Much of the anger over the film, which denigrates Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, has been directed at the U.S. government even though the film was privately produced in the United States and American officials have criticized it. The U.S. Embassy in Indonesia sent a text message to U.S. citizens saying that the consulate in Medan, the country’s thirdlargest city, has been closed temporarily because of demonstrations over the film, “Innocence of Muslims.�

Poll: Obama job approval numbers above 50 percent WASHINGTON — Americans are feeling markedly better about the country’s future and about Barack Obama’s job performance, but the president’s re-election race against Republican Mitt Romney remains a neck-and-neck proposition as Election Day creeps ever closer, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. Buoyed by good mojo coming out of last month’s national political conventions, Obama’s approval rating is back above 50 percent for the first time since May, and the share of Americans who think the country is moving in the right direction is at its highest level since just after the death of Osama bin Laden in May 2011. Romney, his campaign knocked off-stride in recent weeks, has lost his pre-convention edge on the top issue of the campaign the economy. The poll results vividly underscore the importance that turnout will play in determining the victor in Campaign 2012: Among all adults, Obama has a commanding lead, favored by 52 percent of Americans to just 37 percent for Romney. Yet among those most likely to vote, the race is drum tight. Obama is supported by 47 percent of likely voters and Romney by 46 percent, promising an all-out fight to the finish by the two campaigns to gin up enthusiasm among core supporters and dominate get-outthe-vote operations. That’s an area where Obama claimed a strong advantage in 2008 and Republicans reigned four years earlier.

Son’s future wife seems unwilling to change

Today: 5 p.m.: Community Bulletin Board 7 p.m.: Midwest Crappie 9 p.m.: Mayor's Report

Dear Annie: Our son has been dating "Nicole" for several years. She has two teenage daughters from a previous marriage. Although they live several hours from us, my husband and I have done everything to make "Nicole" feel welcome. Last Christmas, she and her daughters opened their gifts, tossed them aside and went to watch TV. In May, I sent her a Mother's Day card wishing her a nice day with her kids. She responded with an e-mail saying that since her mother passed away, she no longer celebrates Mother's Day. A month later, she was in an accident and spent a few days in the hospital. We sent flowers and wishes for a speedy recovery. Our son said the flowers were not her favorite so she threw them out. Two months ago, my son proposed to Nicole. We sent a nice engagement gift with a note saying we would be happy to help with the wedding preparations. After two weeks, I asked my son whether the gift had arrived. He said, "Yes. It's sitting on the table. She hasn't got around to opening it." A day later she sent an e-mail that said, "I will be making my own decisions about the wedding." No mention of the gift. Last week, the two lovebirds came to a family event at our home. I mentioned to Nicole that I have an antique bridal veil that is a family heirloom, and I would be honored to let her borrow it if she wished. She said it was "too oldfashioned." Our son shrugs off Nicole's behavior. I understand that marrying her is his choice and not ours. Are we approaching this wrong? — Perplexed Parents Dear Perplexed: No, you have been very accommodating. Nicole simply seems rude and unkind, and the relationship will not get better unless your son demands it. Please continue to be welcoming, but back off a bit so she doesn't feel smothered. Don't make suggestions or offer opinions about the wedding. She is not receptive or appreciative. Instead, find things to compliment about her plans so she is less insecure about her status and taste. Nicole is likely to be a difficult daughter-inlaw. Our sympathies. Dear Annie: I am a 57-year-old male in good health and physical shape. I have been divorced for 26 years. I have not been on a date in three years. This is not because I don't wish to date, but because I don't want to just go through the motions. I am close to my children and family members, and I know they care about me and don't want me to be alone. The problem is, they constantly say, "You must lower your standards if you want to find someone." What are my standards? Simply put, I have no desire to be with someone I am not physically attracted to. They don't think this should matter, and maybe they have a point, but it's my decision. I have no problem waiting for the right person and realize it may never happen. I love my family and don't want to hurt their feelings. Other than rudely telling them to "butt out," how can I get them to stop? — Enough Dear Enough: As long as you understand that you may be missing out on some terrific partners for superficial reasons, this is entirely your choice. It is not rude to say, "I know you love me and mean well, but I need to make my own decisions, whether you agree or not. Please stop commenting on my social life." Dear Annie: I read the letter from "Omerta in New York," who sent a monetary gift to a friend in financial straits, insisting that he use it to buy a "luxury" item. She was offended when he used it to pay an outstanding bill. I wonder whether she ever considered that, to her friend, knowing he would have electricity or telephone use for the next month might be a luxury. Ending their 40-year friendship over this is certainly her loss. — Cherish Your Friends 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:


Simple tips can add some focus for your photos Dear Readers: Some new digital cameras come with builtin image stabilization, which helps the camera focus on the subject and prevents blurred images. Despite the technology, you can’t prevent shaky hands! Here are hints for keeping your camera still: • Mount your camera on a tripod. • Use the viewfinder rather than the display screen. • Steady yourself against a wall or door frame. • Brace your elbows on the sides of your body, and hold the camera with both hands. • Make a “shelf” out of your forearm to balance your camera

Hints from Heloise Columnist on. No more foggy memories! — Heloise LINT HINT Dear Heloise: I am a huge fan of the dye-trapping cloths used to keep dyes from running during washing. I use them regularly. One day, I pulled the wet cloth and clothes out of the washing machine to put into the dryer.

When I checked the dryer’s lint screen, I ran the wet cloth over the screen. It completely cleaned the screen from even the smallest pieces of lint. It has now become part of my laundry routine to run it over the lint screen before disposal. — Lana D. in Ohio MAKEUP CLOTHS Dear Heloise: When my flat iron is cold, I take a makeupremover cloth (the premoistened kind — Heloise) and wipe off the built-up hair spray. Works like a charm. Then I use the same cloth to give my bathroom countertop a once-over and remove hair spray or powder that has been left. Thanks for all the years of

helpful hints from you and your readers. I have numerous ones taped inside the door of my utility-room closet, and I refer to them countless times. — J. Rodgers, West Helena, Ark. STAIN STICK Dear Heloise: When traveling with children, invariably they spill something on their clothes. Of course, there isn’t always a washing machine available. That’s why I make sure to pack a stain-remover stick. I apply it to the stained clothing and don’t worry until we get home. I have had great success with the stains coming out days or even a week after they occurred. — Linda L. in California



Thursday, September 20, 2012











HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Friday, Sept. 21, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You’ll love discussing profound topics like philosophy, religion and issues about foreign culture with other people today. In fact, if you can travel anywhere, by all means do so. Expand your world! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a good day to divide shared property or discuss how to share things; however, be careful. Don’t give away the farm. (People feel generous today, including you.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) All your dealings with others will be unusually warm and friendly today. It’s a particularly good day to enjoy the company of partners and close friends. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Work relations with customers and coworkers are very upbeat today. Workrelated travel also is likely. Enjoy whatever you’re doing. (Ask others for help.) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a playful, romantic, fun-loving day! Enjoy sports, movies, vacations, romantic diversions and playful activities with children. Look for ways to express your own creative talents. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You’ll enjoy entertaining at home today. In fact, all family gatherings or interaction with relatives will be mutually generous and upbeat. (Why not take advantage of this?) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although the dust is still settling from yesterday, today you feel optimistic about life. Because of this, you will be unusually effective at selling, promoting, writing, teaching or acting. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Be careful shopping today. It’s very easy to go overboard, financially speaking. If you’re pondering a major purchase, give it a sober, second thought. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a feel-good day! It’s easy to be generous to others, although you might not feel like working. You simply want the freedom to do your own thing. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You won’t mind putting the welfare of others before your own today because you’re feeling unusually magnanimous. It’s easy to give to others — both your time and money. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) All group activities will be upbeat and enjoyable today. People are in a good mood, and everyone feels friendly toward each other. Accept all invitations! PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) When dealing with authority figures today, don’t promise more than you can deliver (you will be tempted to do this). Remain realistic despite your eagerness to please and confidence that you can do so. YOU BORN TODAY You’re concerned with social issues and like to keep abreast of the times. You’re always fascinated by what others do. You’re modern in other ways as well, including your dress and your lifestyle. You value beauty and aesthetics and are intrigued by secrets and mystery. Good news! Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big! Birthdate of: Bill Murray, actor; Stephen King, writer; Maggie Grace, actress.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Thursday, Sept. 20, the 264th day of 2012. There are 102 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 20, 1962, James Meredith, a black student, was blocked from enrolling at the University of Mississippi by Democratic Gov. Ross R. Barnett. (Meredith was later admitted.) On this date: • In 1519, Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan and his crew set out from Spain on five ships to find a western passage to the Spice Islands. (Magellan was killed

enroute, but one of his ships eventually circled the world.) • In 1884, the National Equal Rights Party was formed during a convention of suffragists in San Francisco; the convention nominated Belva Ann Bennett Lockwood for president. • In 1958, Martin Luther King Jr. was seriously wounded during a book signing at a New York City department store when Izola Curry stabbed him in the chest. (Curry was later found mentally incompetent.) • In 1973, in their so-called

“battle of the sexes,” tennis star Billie Jean King defeated Bobby Riggs in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3, 63, at the Houston Astrodome. • One year ago: Repeal of the U.S. military’s 18-year-old “don’t ask, don’t tell” compromise took effect, allowing gay and lesbian service members to serve openly. • Today’s Birthdays: Actress Sophia Loren is 78. Rock singers Gunnar Nelson and Matthew Nelson are 45. Actress-model Moon Bloodgood is 37. Actor Jon Bernthal is 36. Actor Aldis Hodge is 26.

French cartoons inflame prophet film tensions PARIS (AP) — France stepped up security Wednesday at its embassies across the Muslim world after a French satirical weekly revived a formula that it has already used to capture attention: Publishing crude, lewd caricatures of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. Wednesday’s issue of the provocative satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, whose offices were firebombed last year, raised concerns that France could face violent protests like the ones targeting the United States over an amateur video produced in California that have left at least 30 people dead. The drawings, some of which depicted Muhammad naked and in demeaning or pornographic poses, were met with a swift rebuke by the French government, which warned the magazine could be inflaming tensions, even as it reiterated France’s free speech protections. The principle of freedom of expression “must not be infringed,” Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said, speaking on France Inter radio. But he added: “Is it pertinent, intelligent, in this context to pour oil on the fire? The answer is no.” Anger over the film “Innocence of Muslims” has fueled violent protests from Asia to Africa. In the Lebanese port city of Tyre, tens of thousands of people marched in the streets Wednesday, chanting “Oh, America, you are God’s enemy!” Worried France might be targeted, the government ordered its embassies, cultural centers, schools and other official sites to close on Friday the Muslim holy day in 20 countries. It also immediately shut down its embassy and the French school in Tunisia, the site of deadly protests at the U.S. Embassy last week. The French Foreign Ministry issued a travel warning urging French citi-

zens in the Muslim world to exercise “the greatest vigilance,” avoiding public gatherings and “sensitive buildings.” The controversy could prove tricky for France, which has struggled to integrate its Muslim population, Western Europe’s largest. Many Muslims believe the Prophet Muhammad should not be depicted at all even in a flattering way because it might encourage idolatry. Violence provoked by the anti-Islam video, which portrays the prophet as a fraud, womanizer and child molester, began with a Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, then quickly spread to Libya, where an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi left the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans dead. In Washington, White

House spokesman Jay Carney said the Obama administration believed the French magazine images “will be deeply offensive to many and have the potential to be inflammatory.” “We don’t question the right of something like this to be published,” he said, pointing to the U.S. Constitution’s protections of free expression. “We just question the judgment behind the decision to publish it.” In a statement, Arab League chief Nabil Elarabi called the cartoons “provocative and disgraceful” and said their publication added complexity to an already inflamed situation. He said the drawings arose from ignorance of “true Islam and its holy prophet.” A lawsuit was filed

against Charlie Hebdo hours after the issue hit newsstands, the Paris prosecutor’s office said, though it would not say who filed it. The magazine also said its website had been hacked. Riot police took up positions outside the magazine’s offices, which were firebombed last year after it released an edition that mocked radical Islam. Chief editor Stephane Charbonnier, who publishes under the pen name “Charb” and has been under police protection for a year, defended the cartoons. “Muhammad isn’t sacred to me,” he told The

Associated Press. “I don’t blame Muslims for not laughing at our drawings. I live under French law. I don’t live under Quranic law.” He said he had no regrets and felt no responsibility for any violence. “I’m not the one going into the streets with stones and Kalashnikovs,” he said. “We’ve had 1,000 issues and only three problems, all after front pages about radical Islam.” The cartoonist, who goes by the name Luz, also was defiant. “We treat the news like journalists. Some use cameras, some use computers.

For us, it’s a paper and pencil,” he said. “A pencil is not a weapon. It’s just a means of expression.” A small-circulation weekly, Charlie Hebdo often draws attention for ridiculing sensitivity about the Prophet Muhammad. It was acquitted in 2008 by a Paris appeals court of “publicly abusing a group of people because of their religion” following a complaint by Muslim associations. The magazine has staked out a sub-genre in France’s varied media universe with its cartoons. Little is sacred, and Wednesday’s issue also featured caricatures of people as varied as Clint Eastwood, an unnamed Roman Catholic cardinal who looked a bit like Pope John Paul II and French President Francois Hollande, a staple. At the demonstration in Lebanon, Nabil Kaouk, deputy chief of Hezbollah’s Executive Council, warned the United States and France not to anger Muslims. “Be careful of the anger of our nation that is ready to defend the prophet,” he said. “Our hearts are wounded and our chests are full of anger.” Nasser Dheini, a 40-yearold farmer, said instead of boosting security at its embassies, France should close down the offending magazine. “Freedom of opinion should not be by insulting religions,” said Dheini, carrying his 4-year-old son Sajed. Outside the magazine’s Paris offices, a passer-by wearing a traditional Muslim tunic said he was neither surprised nor shocked by the cartoons. He criticized France’s decision to close embassies and schools for fear of protests by extremists. “It gives legitimacy to movements that don’t have any,” said Hatim Essoufaly, who was walking his toddler in a stroller.

The scammer's check is and eventually fake 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.

Trojans get revenge, knock off CJ by 7 Staff Reports


Troy got a measure of payback Wednesday. Today it will be playing for something a little more important. Still, before taking on Piqua in a key Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division matchup today, the Trojans (8-3, 2-1 GWOC North) hosted Chaminade Julienne — which defeated Troy by one stroke one week ago to the day — for Senior

Night at Troy Country Club on Wednesday, and all four Trojans shot sub-40 rounds in a 149-156 victory. “We got a little revenge after our one-shot loss,” Troy coach Ty Mercer said. “That’s our third win at Troy Country Club, too. And with four scores below 40 — I’ll take it. That makes for a happy coach.”

Dalton Cascaden led the Trojans with a 36, Cam Weaver shot 37, Connor Super and Kaleb Tittle both shot 38 and Dylan Cascaden shot 44. Also seeing his first varsity action after four seasons with the team was senior Kyle Croft, joining fellow seniors Weaver and Dylan Cascaden on the course. “He’s been with the team all four years, and he’s been a good role model,” Mercer said of Croft. “It was nice to see him get into a

■ Girls Soccer

match. “This was Dalton’s third or fourth round in a row below 40. He’s playing really well right now. We’re all playing well right now.” Thursday’s 155-164 victory by Greenville over Butler, which holds the only GWOC North win over Troy, set up a potential threeway tie between them all in the regular season — if Troy is able to defeat Piqua at Miami Shores today — with next week’s postseason GWOC tournament looming.

On the attack again Six-minutes all Troy needs in 3-1 victory BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor Six minutes. That’s all the Troy Trojans needed. In a game dominated by Troy’s offense, the Trojans scored all three of their goals in a window of a little more than six TROY minutes in the first half, putting away enough chances to drop Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division rival Butler 3-1 in the team’s divisional opener Wednesday at Troy Memorial Stadium. “That’s been our story all season. We know we can be dangerous offensively,” Troy coach Michael Rasey said. “That six-minute window shows just how dangerous we can be in a short amount of time. We’ve done that a lot this year (scored goals in bunches in a brief amount of time). “We’ve proven to our opponents that we’re capable of scoring.” Troy’s Marisa Mowery (8) heads in a goal

(AP) — CINCINNATI Defensive lineman Domata Peko doesn’t like what he’s seeing. A defense that took the Cincinnati Bengals to the playoffs last season has become a weight pulling them down. They’ve been shredded by Joe Flacco and rookie Brandon Weeden not to mention their running backs during one of their worst two-game stretches in years. The Bengals (1-1) are ranked 30th on defense heading into their game Sunday at Washington (1-1), and it’s a deserved place. “I know that we are a better defense than we’ve been showing,” Peko said on Wednesday. “I think we’ve just got to settle down. It seems like everybody’s eyes have been too wide open, like a deer in the headlights.” The numbers are eye-opening. A defense that allowed opponents to gain 400 yards only twice last season, including the playoffs, has given up 400 in each of the first two games. The Bengals have allowed 71 points fourth-most in the NFL and an astounding 8.36 yards on first down, by far the worst in the league. There’s more. During a 44-13 loss in Baltimore and a 34-27 win over Cleveland, the defense gave up 37 plays of at least 10 yards. They gave up 430 yards and 439 yards in the first two games more than in any game last season, when the defense finished No. 7 overall. Last season, Cincinnati

URBANA — The Tippecanoe Red Devils ran off their fourth straight win — and third straight shutout Wednesday night, hammering Urbana 8-0 on the road. “We came out and got two goals pretty fast, then we

focused on moving the ball around,” Tippecanoe coach Scott Downing said. “We did a pretty good job. Our defense was solid, too, and we got another shutout.” Tippecanoe (7-1, 6-0 Central

Buckeye Conference) forced a pair of own goals by Urbana on corner kicks. Jonathan Phister scored two goals and had an assist. Zach Vinski, Taylor Clark, Chase Conley and Darius Appora each scored a goal, Liam Whitworth had three assists and Jake Maus added an assist. Tippecanoe — which is tied

with Tecumseh atop the CBC Kenton Trail Division — travels to Wayne Saturday. • Girls Tipp 0, Urbana 0 TIPP CITY — Tippecanoe outshot Urbana 16-3 Wednesday night, but in the end the Red Devils and Hillclimbers fought to a 0-0 draw.

Bengals ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 allowed only one team Seattle to throw for 300 yards. The Ravens and Browns both topped that mark. Baltimore and Cleveland each rushed for more than 100 yards as well. The puzzling part is that it’s essentially the same defense. “It’s just doing our jobs, being where we need to do all the time, being consistent,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “We’re pressing a little bit, and it showed.” There have been changes already. Taylor

Mays started the opener at strong safety, but was benched after struggling. He was replaced by Jeromy Miles, who made his first career start against Cleveland. Cleveland took advantage of the middle of the field, with Weeden throwing for 322 yards, the most ever by a Browns rookie. Trent Richardson ran for 109 yards and scored on a 32-yard run and a 23-yard catch, the first Browns rookie running back to score both ways in a game. “We got the win, but we weren’t happy,” cor-

nerback Leon Hall said. “Getting the first of the year is big but like anything else, you want to play well individually and as a defense. Obviously you are happy but at the same time you realize things aren’t as good as they seem coming off a win and that you’ve got a lot of room to improve.” The defense suffered a huge setback when outside linebacker Thomas Howard tore up a knee during practice three days before the Cleveland game, ending his season. Howard was Cincinnati’s leading tackler last sea-

son. The rest of the linebackers struggled against the Browns, who completed a lot of quick passes to the middle of the field. Middle linebacker Rey Maualuga had a tough time keeping up. “He needs to play better,” linebackers coach Paul Guenther said. “He knows that, we know that. He’s had some good plays and some that he needs to play better on. I know a lot of people criticize him, but he knows he needs to play better and he will play better.” Ravens and The

Browns used extra blockers to protect their quarterbacks, limiting the Bengals to a total of five sacks. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap, who sprained his right knee during the preseason opener, is fully practicing this week and could return against the Redskins. Dunlap is the Bengals’ top pass rusher. “We’ve got some guys that have been nicked up,” Peko said. “Thank God it’s the first two games of the season, not in Week 14. That’s what the early games are for, to clean stuff up. Once we

get that chemistry going again, we’ll be fine.” NOTES: Dunlap and RB Bernard Scott (hand) fully participated in practice on Wednesday, an indication they’re close to returning from their preseason injuries. Hall was limited by a sore calf, but jogged briskly off the field after practice ended. … CB Adam “Pacman” Jones was honored as the AFC’s special teams player of the week for his 81-yard punt return for a touchdown against Cleveland. It was his first punt return for a TD since 2006.

Weeden rebounds

Numbers say replacements not very different

Browns rookie bounces back from woeful debut BEREA (AP) — Brandon Weeden can be social again. One week after a dismal NFL debut drove the Browns rookie quarterback underground, causing him to avoid all media and forcing him to stay up late studying game tape to see what he did wrong in his first game as a pro, Weeden can show his face in public without shame. After throwing for 322 yards and two touchdowns in Cincinnati on Sunday, Weeden doesn’t have to hide. In fact, he’s even back on Twitter, a place he didn’t dare visit last week. “There’s been a lot of positive responses,” he said, “and I’ve responded back to some people.” Weeden’s confidence is high following his performance in Sunday’s 34-27 loss, which eased some of the sting from his four-interception, 5.1-rating debacle in Week 1 against Philadelphia. Weeden completed 26 of 37 passes (70 percent) and finished with a 114.9 rating against the Bengals while setting a Browns rookie record for most passing yards in a game. According to STATS LLC, Weeden’s improvement of 109.8 in passer rating over a two-game span is the sixth highest by any quarterback since 2000. But beyond the huge jump in his numbers, Weeden showed he could take a punch and keep fighting. If there was any concern about his ability to bounce back, there isn’t anymore. “It just shows me that I can play at this level,” he said Wednesday. It’s not that Weeden ever doubted his ability, but there were those outside the Browns (0-2) who began to wonder if the team made a mistake in selecting the 28year-old former minor league pitcher in the first round of this year’s draft. But those worries seemed valid after Weeden looked so unsure and almost frightened against the Eagles. Weeden took it upon himself to make things better. He stayed off social media sites, and avoided sports talk radio, TV and newspapers in the wake of his poor showing in the opener. Weeden joked that


Cleveland’s Brandon Weeden throws a pass Sunday against Cincinnati. he “didn’t let the nation tell me how bad I played.” He also spent last week watching game film, falling asleep one night at home while viewing some highlights on his iPad. “My wife gives me a hard time because I can’t stay awake in movies,” Weeden cracked. “I guess I can’t stay awake watching film either.” But the extra work paid off, and Weeden responded by lighting up the Bengals. This weekend, he’ll try to do the same against the Bills (1-1). His tight spirals impressed his teammates, so did his tenacity. “It’s cool just to see him have success because he’s one of us,” said wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi, who had five catches for 90 yards at Cincinnati. “You always wish success to one of your teammates and a guy like that. But just his mental toughness after he took so much flak from his first game. He didn’t play as well as he wanted to, and he said he was going to come back and play a good game and he did. “I think that’s just a scratch of what he’s going to do, and what he’s capable of doing.” Weeden’s turnaround can also be attributed to his willingness to accept criticism. Maybe because Weeden is more mature

than the average rookie, Browns coach Pat Shurmur said he’s not afraid to point out mistakes to his QB. If Weeden does something Shurmur finds unacceptable, he hears about it. “Oh yeah, I’m tough on him,” Shurmur said. “I’m his coach. I admire what he is as a player, but I look at him like I would look at my son. I’ve got no problem saying the tough stuff to him, I really don’t. The way this thing works is the head coach, the coordinator (Brad Childress) and the quarterback coach (Mark Whipple) are all on the same page with what we say to him.” Shurmur said Weeden can take whatever criticism the coaches throw at him. “You can present it to Brandon however you want,” Shurmur said. “You can whisper it to him or you can put a little oomph into it. He handles it both ways.” Weeden appreciates the tough love from Shurmur, a former quarterbacks coach and coordinator. As long as the comments are constructive, Weeden has no problem getting an earful from his coach anytime. “He’s not chewing me out in front of everyone else,” he said. “He’ll pull me aside and tell me exactly how he feels and I respond well to that. At least once a practice he’ll come over and say, ‘look we need you to do this, this and this.’ I respect him and

I respect everything he has to say because he’s been doing this a lot longer than I have. “I don’t want to be called out in front of the team every day, but if he can come over and tell me man to man like he does, it will work for a long time.” Weeden got a big boost last week from Cleveland’s running game. Rookie Trent Richardson gained 109 yards on 19 carries, scoring on a 32-yard run in the second quarter. In the third, Richardson turned a checkdown pass from Weeden into a 23-yard TD in which he made four Bengals defenders miss on his way to the end zone. Weeden initially looked down field before dumping the ball off to Richardson. A week earlier, Weeden might have forced a pass into traffic and gotten picked off. But he learned his lessons, and knows he can’t get away with what he did in college. “Through my thick skull and as stubborn as I am, I’ve gotta realize that sometimes those guys are gonna get caught in man-to-man,” he said. “They’re not gonna win. So I’ve gotta find my backs. I’m still progressing. In college, I got greedy. “I stuck balls in some tight windows ‘cause I knew I could and guys were a lot more open, but that’s not the case here.”

NHL cancels September games NEW YORK (AP) — The NHL canceled its entire September preseason game schedule on Wednesday, the first onice casualty of the fourday lockout. The league is wiping out all games through Sept. 30, a move it deems “necessary because of the absence of a collective bargaining agreement” with the players’ association. The NHL also said the 2012 Kraft Hockeyville preseason game, sched-

uled for Oct. 3 in Belleville, Ontario, has been postponed until 2013, bringing the total to 60 games called off on Wednesday. The regular season is scheduled to begin on Oct. 11. NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said the league has “no set policy on cancellations” of other games. Also Wednesday, a person familiar with the plan says NHL employees at the league offices will

switch to a four-day work week Oct. 1 because of the lockout. The move will effectively cut salaries by 20 percent. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the NHL hadn’t made the plan public. The news was first reported by The Canadian Press. The Florida Panthers and Ottawa Senators have let staff go because of the lockout, while several other teams have

said they don’t have any plans to do so as of now. The league locked out its players at 12:01 a.m. Sunday, its fourth shutdown since 1992. The preseason cancellations included a Washington Capitals game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sept. 26 in Baltimore. Last year, in the inaugural Baltimore Hockey Classic, the Capitals hosted the Nashville Predators and drew a sold-out crowd.

NEW YORK (AP) — The numbers say there isn’t much difference in the NFL with replacement officials. Comments from players and coaches say otherwise. As fan outrage grows over calls and non-calls, delays in doling out penalties and indecision by the replacements, statistics show strong similarities between the number of flags thrown this year by the temporary crews and last year by the guys who currently are locked out. The NFL knows things are far from perfect something that could have been predicted with officials whose recent experience typically was not even at the highest college levels. But things are never perfect with the regulars, either, and the league shows no sign of being forced back to the negotiating table because of the criticism. “We are going to continue to do everything possible to raise the level of performance of the current officials” through training tapes, conference calls and meetings, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Wednesday. The league does that with the regular officials, too. One point of emphasis this week will be game control and making sure players are penalized for unnecessary actions ranging from roughness penalties to unsportsmanlike conduct. Game control and simple professionalism by the officials have become key issues this week after complaints from a number of players. “There’s no doubt the integrity of the game has been compromised not having the regular officials out there,” Giants linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka said. “We’ve got to get that taken care of.” Added Rams coach Jeff Fisher: “We just all hope, and I’m speaking on behalf of all 31 other head coaches, we hope they get something done. We’re trusting that they will.” The Eagles’ LeSean McCoy was stunned when one of the replacements told the All-Pro running back he was on the official’s fantasy football team. The league prohibits its game officials from playing fantasy football. “I’ll be honest,” McCoy said, “they are like fans.” What the fans seem most annoyed with is the lack of pace to games, most notably Monday night’s win by the Falcons over the Broncos that dragged on past midnight. That’s about the only area where, statistically, the replacements have been far inferior. Average time of game is about six minutes longer in 2012 than in 2011, and with only one overtime game in the opening two weeks same as last year extra periods can’t be blamed. More likely, the time it takes to properly

administrate penalties throughout the game is the cause. The league has a supervisor in the press box and an alternate official on the sideline to help in that area. But it’s been a struggle. “It’s a combination of everything,” said Fisher, who has served on the NFL’s competition committee for most of his coaching career. “Most of them are not (from) Division I. They’re all doing the best they can but it’s a combination of everything: it’s the speed, it’s the differences in rules. We just hope they’re able to put things together as soon as they can.” The perception seems to be flags are flying indiscriminately. And yet: The average number of penalties per game is down from 15.2 to 14.7. On player safety calls, such as roughing the passer; unnecessary roughness, including hitting defenseless players; and, face-mask or horse-collar violations, the calls are nearly even: 75 this year, 74 last. Instant replay reviews are way up, an increase of 16. But the percentage of reversals is way down: 23 this year out of 62 as opposed to 21 of 46 in 2011. Defensive pass interference and illegal contact penalties are up, but only from 48 to 51, surprising because of the hubbub raised on the airwaves about the lack of such calls. Offensive players believe the replacements are concentrating on pass interference penalties against them, not against defensive backs. The numbers: six such calls this season to nine through two weeks last year. “It’s frustrating because I think there was no offensive pass interferences called the whole preseason, so that’s kind of what they’ve been emphasizing,” said Vikings receiver Percy Harvin, who believes he was victimized by “a terrible call” of offensive interference in a loss Sunday at Indianapolis. “It wasn’t just our game but a lot of offensive pass interferences called. It just seemed like they were gunning for the offensive pass interferences this week. “It’s frustrating not knowing exactly what they are looking at, but we can’t worry about that. We have to adjust to the game and be ready to go from there.” Where does the officiating situation go from here? No negotiations with the NFL Referees Association are planned, and the NFL has drawn up a schedule to use the replacements for five weeks, if necessary. That bothers Giants defensive end Justin Tuck. “I am not necessarily mad at the replacement officials,” Tuck said. “I am more upset with the NFL for not handling this and taking care of this in due time.”

Indians fall into last place


CLEVELAND — Josh Willingham had four hits and four RBIs, Liam Hendriks finally got his first career win and the Minnesota Twins beat Cleveland 6-4 Wednesday night, dropping the Indians into last place in the AL Central. Willingham belted a tiebreaking two-run homer off Zach McAllister (5-8) in the fifth inning, giving Minnesota a 4-2 lead. He also had three singles. Hendriks (1-7) pitched six effective innings to get the win in his 18th career start. Glen Perkins worked the ninth for his 14th save. Minnesota’s Joe Mauer went 1 for 4 with a walk and had an RBI single taken away when the umpires reversed a call. Cleveland shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera homered, but left in the seventh with a sore right wrist. Mauer hit a sinking liner to left with Jamey

Carroll on second base in the eighth. Vinny Rottino made a diving catch, but third base umpire Mike Muchlinski gave a safe sign as Carroll scored. Indians manager Manny Acta argued with Muchlinski, a fill-in ump from the minors. The entire crew huddled for a moment and Muchlinski reversed his call, ending the inning and keeping the score at 6-2. Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley each singled in runs in the bottom half, but that was it for the Tribe. Cleveland fell to 11-39 since July 26 and has dropped 11 of its last 13 at home. The Indians led the AL Central for 40 days and held a four-game advantage on May 17, but are 39-72 since. Cabrera put Cleveland ahead 1-0 with his 15th homer in the first. He later aggravated a wrist injury that caused him to miss four starts last week.

Troy’s Ashley Rector defends a Butler ballcarrier Wednesday. ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 And against Butler (54-2, 1-1 GWOC North), when the goals were scored, Leah Soutar was there. Soutar — who had missed a goal by less than a foot one minute earlier — ripped a shot off the bottom of the crossbar and in with 17:07 left in the first half to give Troy a 1-0 lead. Less than two minutes later, Troy (7-2, 1-0 GWOC North) earned a throw-in in Butler’s end. Soutar let fly with one of her trademark flip-throws, and Marisa Mowery put herself in position on the receiving end and headed it in to make it 2-0. And with 10:56 left in the first half, Troy worked the ball up the field in three quick steps. Ashley Rector sent the ball up to Soutar, who crossed it to Lexie Hull in front of the Aviator net. Hull redirected it past the goalie, and Troy had a commanding 30 lead. “You can’t ignore the fact that Leah was involved in all three goals,” Rasey said. “Her last two or three games have been really good. Tonight just shows the kind of player she is.” Even so, plenty of other Trojans found themselves in the thick of the action at other times in the game. Rector fired off a few shots from long range that

Troy’s Morgan Brown stuffs a Butler pass attempt Wednesday. late in the game, that was huge,” Rasey said. “You don’t want to let a team as feisty as Butler get within one goal. “They had gained a little momentum, but I think our defense played well overall and it was a solid effort in net by Mackenzie.” A fact that is often lost in the shuffle when Troy is posting goals as quick as it is capable of. “It’s often overlooked,

but our defense has played well all season,” Rasey said. “A lot of attention gets paid to our attack, but you can’t ignore the job Courtney Mazzulla, Natasha Lucas and Catelyn Schmiedebusch have done, as well as the formidable combo of Amanda Blakley and Mackenzie Schulz in net.” Troy now travels to Greenville Saturday looking to keep the pressure on in the GWOC North.

were just off the mark, and Madison Burchfield hit a corner kick from Kasey Copas just over the crossbar late. Burchfield also had a gorgeous goal on a cross by Copas — who won a lengthy battle with a Butler defender in the corner of the field to get the cross off in the first place — wiped out by an offsides call. “I’ve been very pleased with the number of different players that have contributed offensively,” Rasey said. “It makes us hard to defend. At any given moment, we have seven or eight players that can legitimately score.” All told, Troy outshot Butler 23-3. “Of course, that also shows that maybe we should have put a few more in,” Rasey said. Butler’s Meredith Brumfield snuck a goal in with 1:45 left in the first half, but it wasn’t until the final 20 minutes of the game that the Aviators mounted more offense. But a corner kick with less than 10 minutes led to a point-blank redirection shot that could have made the game much different — had Troy goalie Mackenzie Schulz not stuffed the shot. “That point-blank save

Troy’s Madison Burchfield (15) heads the ball as teammates Catelyn Schmiedebusch (4), Maci Wadsworth (16) and Kina Sekito (5) look on Wednesday against Butler at Troy Memorial Stadium.

NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball appears unlikely to interfere if Melky Cabrera wins the NL batting title while serving his 50-game suspension for a positive drug test. The San Francisco Giants outfielder began Wednesday with a leagueleading .346 average, seven points ahead of Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen. Cabrera has 501 plate appearances, one fewer than the required amount if the Giants play 162 games. Under section 10.22(a) of the Official Baseball Rules, he would win the batting title if an extra hitless at-bat is added to his average and it remains higher than that of any other qualifying player. “We’ll see how it all plays out,” baseball Commissioner Bud Selig said Wednesday after taping an episode of “CenterStage” for the YES Network. “We generally don’t interfere in that process. We’ll take a look at

it at the end of the year.” Cabrera, the All-Star game MVP, was suspended Aug. 15 for a positive test for testosterone and is missing the final 45 games of the regular season. During the YES interview, scheduled to air for the first time Sept. 27, Selig was asked whether records set during the Steroids Era should be revisited. “You can’t change records because once you get into that it would never stop,” Selig said. “It would create more problems than it would solve.” • Escobar Suspended Yunel Escobar insisted he meant no insult, reiterating that the words he wrote were supposed to be “just a joke.” The Toronto Blue Jays had a different read, suspending their starting shortstop for three games on Tuesday for wearing eye-black displaying a homophobic slur in Spanish during a game last weekend against Boston. Escobar apologized to his team and “to all those

who have been offended.” “It was not something I intended to be offensive,” he said through a translator. “It was not anything intended to be directed at anyone in particular.” Escobar said he wrote the message 10 minutes before Saturday’s home game on his eye-black, a sticker players wear under their eyes to reduce sun glare. The 29-year-old Cuban said he frequently puts messages there usually inspirational, manager John Farrell offered and had never previously written that specific slur. Escobar insisted the word is often used within teams and by Latinos and “I didn’t see it as something bad at the time.” “For us, it doesn’t have the significance to the way it’s being interpreted now,” he said. “It’s a word without a meaning.” “I don’t have anything against homosexuals,” he said, adding he didn’t mean for the term to be “misinterpreted” by the gay community.
