During prior years, Slater said staffing had not been a problem during the 100-day operation of the facility. “This summer we experienced a staffing shortage beginning the middle of August through Labor day,” Slater said in a letter and in conversations with the board Thursday. “Due to Ohio State University, Wright State University and Ohio University switching from quarters to semesters,

many of our college students who typically work through Labor Day left for school in in the middle of August, leaving the facility short on staff. Slater said for the last two weekends of the season, she had 12 lifeguards available to work and hired five slide attendants (mostly adults) to free up available life guards. The slide attendants were not life guard certified, yet had training in first aid/CPR and trained

lone count of theft in office in July and was sentenced this month to 60 months of probation and five days in jail. Neither Canfarelli or Maitlen have been charged with any crimes as of Thursday. The only remaining employee


who was suspended in May, Rob Scherer, 45, of Troy, has since been reinstated. At Harrah’s sentencing Special Prosecutor Andrew Wilson described the county’s maintenance department as a “culture of corruption” that exceeds the bounds of internal employees and said additional

charges will likely be filed. All five men were suspended May 29 after county commissioners approved the action based on information from an investigation by the Miami County Sheriff ’s Office into alleged department misconduct related to theft. The sheriff’s office began investigating the department

after individuals came forward with allegations concerning “inappropriate handling of county equipment and purchases.” Since that time detectives have seized truckloads of equipment taken from the homes of Ball, Harrah and perhaps others, including lawn care equipment, power tools and other equipment.


TAP • CONTINUED FROM A1 with pool policies and procedures. Even with the addition of the slide attendants and 12 lifeguards, Slater said she still had difficulty in meeting minimum staff requirements. Slater proposed four scenarios for the board’s review. Slater asked for the review and comments so decisions could be made to adjust season pass and daily rates accordingly which will be determined at next month’s meeting. As of Sept. 4, 2012, 455 season memberships were sold: 288 family memberships; 52 adult memberships; 97 student memberships and 18 senior memberships. Slater said attendance on Labor Day weekend is “hit or miss” and always dependant on weather, but generally is a low attendance weekend due to family vacations and other engagements of the pool’s patrons. Troy Recreation Department director Ken Siler said Troy Aquatic Park is one of very few public pool facilities that stays open through the Labor Day weekend, as many cities close its facilities once school begins in August. “If we maintain it where it is, we are still a weekend longer than other facilities,” Siler said. Slater said safety was a main concern with the shortage in staffing, even closing the slides for 1/2 hour to maintain staff. Board member Tom Dunn asked if it was standard if attendance dropped off in August. Slater said many patrons are busy with fall sports and activities such as band beginning prior to the school year. Slater said typically August is a low attendance month due to many getting “pooled out” having spent the majority of June and July at the facility and in preparation for the school year. Slater said this year’s cool weather in August also led numbers to be lower.


TAP STAFFING OPTIONS FOR 2013 TROY — The following are four proposals to adjust the Troy Aquatic Park’s operation for the 2013 season. According to Carrie Slater, Troy Recreation Department’s assistant director, lifeguards are in short supply due to colleges returning to school in mid-August after the state set all universities to operate on semesters from quarters. • Proposal 1: Keep pool hours the same 2013 Attempt to hire more lifeguards who are not in college and who are not involved in extra curricular activities at the high school level. Offer an adult lifeguard class in hopes to retain several adults who would be willing to work evening and weekend shifts to offset loss of high school and college students. Slater said it would be hard to determine staff prior to announcing 2013 hours of operation but the positive would be no impact to patrons. • Proposal 2: Reduce hours of operation once Troy City Schools resume Saturday hours of operation — Noon to 5 p.m.; Sunday hours of operation — 1 - 5 p.m. and 5-7 p.m. pass member swim; Labor Day (Monday) hours of operation: Noon to 5 p.m.; Monday — Friday: Closed. Slater said the positive would reduce employee cost and the negative would be that patrons would lose approximately 12 hours of swim time compared to the 2012 season • Proposal 3: Close pool for the season Sunday before Labor Day weekend Saturday and Sunday of operation would remain the same and the facility would not open Labor Day weekend. Slater said the positive would reduce employee cost and the negative would be patrons would lose three days of operation during the Labor Day weekend. • Proposal 4: Last day of operation would be day before Troy City Schools begin. For example, the 2012 season’s last day would have been Tuesday, Aug. 21. Slater said the positive would reduce employee cost, chemical costs, gas and electric by approximately two weeks. The negative would be patrons would lose approximately seven days of operation. — By Melanie Yingst As for Labor Day weekend, only 89 patrons used the pool throughout the weekend. In 2011, the pool closed for two of the three days, with 202 attending Saturday of the holiday. Yet, the pool had its highest attendance for Labor Day weekend in 2008 of 1,259 due to extreme heat; 2009 had 291 patrons, 2010 had 208 patrons. Board vice-president Brock Heath said he was comfortable tabling a decision to adjust the

pool’s calendar until next month’s meeting to gain feedback from the public. The board will also discuss pool rates including season passes at next month’s meeting. “Let’s see what people are thinking and ask people ‘What do you think about closing on Labor Day?’” Heath said. Heath also said he supported to try to close the pool for Labor Day next year to see what happens and “use it as a test run.”

smithing and pottery. A variety of vendors will also be available. Participants live in lodges and must adhere to the lifestyles of those living around 1840. A detailed list of clothing, lodge and trading guidelines are expected to be followed. Many of the tents at the site were made by Panther Primitives, owned by Sam and Theresa Darby of West Virginia, who created tents for releases including “The Last Samurai,” “Pirates of the Caribbean 1-4” and “Dexter.” The camp is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 22 and 23 and 10 a.m. through the lantern tour on Sept. 26. The vendor area, however, will be available to the public everyday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Eastern Primitive Rendezvous is the largest of six national events sponsored by the NRLHF, a group dedicate to educating people about life from the 1700s to the early 1800s. This year’s event in Troy is the farthest west that the Eastern rendezvous has ever been held, and it is expected to bring people from 31 states and as many as three other countries.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” — First Amendment, U.S. Constitution

EDITORIAL The Rochester (N.Y.) Democrat and Chronicle on the anniversary of the Occupy movement. One year after demonstrators took to the streets near Lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park to protest the growing disparity between the rich and the poor, Occupy Wall Street-inspired encampments are largely gone, but the problems the movement highlighted remain stubbornly apparent nationwide… The protests — which began in New York City on Sept. 17, 2011 — turned public attention to issues such as corporate malfeasance, big money in politics, deregulation of financial institutions and, foremost, income inequality. It was a new kind of movement. No charismatic leaders; no bigmonied, behind-the-scenes interests; just a seeming outpouring of frustration. The protests quickly changed the terms of debate on economic issues, distinguishing the haves and have-nots as the “1 percent” and the “99 percent.” While the movement has dissolved, the issues stuck. Indeed, whether the wealthiest should pay more in taxes has been the No. 1 issue differentiating President Barack Obama (who, in Occupylike terms says they should “pay their fair share”) and Republican challenger Mitt Romney (who argues for lower taxes for all). … Working groups that sprung out of the movement still meet regularly, focusing on issues such as election reform and fair working conditions for non-union employees. Other Occupy activists continue to network. The Occupy movement may be fading but the issues it moved to the top of the political agenda — “political, civil and economic human rights,” as one Occupy Rochester member described them — remain to be tackled, both nationally and locally. The Clarion-Ledger, Jackson, Miss., on re-assessing antiterrorism efforts: Eleven years after the 9/11 attacks, regular reminders about that awful day persist, whenever you pass through an airport, see the altered Manhattan skyline or hear about the latest casualties in Afghanistan. Less visibly, millions of security cameras track your movements, and the government has amassed vast powers to snoop on you. But the palpable sense of fear that gripped the nation has dissipated, and terrorism has taken a back seat to the economy and other issues in the presidential campaign, something that would have been unimaginable in the fall of 2001. As important as the economy is, terrorism shouldn’t be relegated to an afterthought. Of the many things done following 9/11, some were smart (reinforcing cockpit doors on jetliners) and some were silly (the color-coded alert system). After 11 years, it’s time to reassess the threat and recalibrate the responses. The threat has evolved. Osama bin Laden is dead, and his alQaida organization is on the ropes, far less able to mount a 9/11style attack. Its effort to recruit Muslims in the U.S. for terrorism has mostly been a flop. … At the same time, the threat is far from eradicated. Bin Laden’s successor, Ayman al-Zawahri, remains at large. The Taliban, which sheltered bin Laden before 9/11, continues trying to reclaim power in Afghanistan. Radical Islamists are seeking a foothold in failing states in the Middle East and Africa. A showdown over Iran’s nuclear program could bring about a resurgence of Iranian-sponsored terrorism, either from Tehran or its Hezbollah allies. Then there’s the continuing danger from home-grown terrorists, be they self-activated jihadists like Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan or nonMuslim anti-government fanatics. … Former New Jersey governor Thomas Kean, who co-chaired the 9/11 Commission, tells us “this is exactly the right time” to reexamine the threat and response. He’d like to see Congress do the job itself. But if that can’t happen — either because members are too partisan or find it impossible to decide what not to do — then the job should go to another independent commission, which could provide the necessary political cover.


Please vote for pro-life candidates To the Editor: Life is precious. Wouldn’t you agree? Imagine, however, that you had a 25 percent chance of being murdered within the next nine months. Every day in America this is exactly what happens to the most innocent of human beings. There are more than 3,000 abortions provided every day in our country, which adds up to over one million abortions in just one year. We truly are living during a holocaust. The most innocent human beings are being tortured to a cruel death because of what many say is a woman’s “choice.” Some will say that abortion should be kept legal in the case of rape or incest. Statistics show that abortion as a result of rape or incest is one percent. Those

who find themselves in this situation are in my prayers, and I am sure they are suffering immensely. But let me ask you this. If you saw a picture of two fetuses, would you be able to tell which one was conceived by rape and which one was conceived in a marriage? Absolutely not! Every life is sacred. In this upcoming election, we can be a voice for the voiceless. The abortion holocaust is going on right here, right now, and yet there are citizens placing the issues of economics and education above this issue. And believe me when I say I think education is important. I am a teacher. It’s sad that the right to life even has to be an issue, but without this right nothing else really matters. President Obama is the most pro-abortion president this country has ever had. I ask you to learn the facts about his voting

record. President Obama actively supports Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion mill. In one year, more than a quarter million abortions were performed by Planned Parenthood, but only 2, 410 adoption referrals were made – only eight for every 1,000 abortions. In closing, I ask you to prayerfully consider voting prolife. We must believe that our vote will make a difference for innocent babies and their mothers. Abortion destroys babies, and deeply wounds women. Women who abort have a 6 times higher rate of suicide than those who carry their baby to term. When you and I someday see God face to face, I hope He graciously says, “Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.”

Factory manufactured more than a paycheck Every time I read all the headlines shouting about the loss of manufacturing jobs in our great state, I always think of my experience as a summer hire in a steel factory more than a decade ago. The summer after my freshman year of college, my dad told my sister and I about the opportunity to work at a steel tube manufacturing factory he himself worked for more than 30 years. My grandfather also worked at this same factory and retired after several decades of service. I had to wear a hard hat, steeltoed boots, safety goggles and ear protection. I also would wear several pairs of Kevlar gloves for arm protection to keep from being cut by sharp metal. Most days I was covered in oil and steel shavings. It wasn’t until that summer I realized how hard my own father worked each day. He’d come home early in the mornings, sleep for only a few hours, get up and work on the farm, come in for dinner and sleep for another two to three hours — every day. The experience will be one which will stay with me for a lifetime. It was hard, sometimes danger-

Melanie Yingst Troy Daily News Columnist ous, dirty work. Yet, it was the people that made each day an easy one. Every single one of them were kind, down-to-earth people. People who just wanted to support their families, have nice homes and spare cash to enjoy their hobbies. While my sister opted for only one summer of employment at the factory, I came back for a second summer. Megan worked with Janet, my favorite red-head who I still keep in contact to this day thanks to Facebook. Earlier this week, I attended her husband’s viewing. Stan worked at the factory for 40 years and many coworkers attended his viewing. I didn’t work with Janet, but every morning she walked in with

a smile and ask how I was doing before I left for the day. Janet nicknamed us: The M&M twins. Heck, the factory was where Megan and I received our namesakes from a co-worker’s suggestion. It was through this summer job that Janet’s son Brian and I are good friends to this day. It was here that I also learned more about my grandfather and his time at the factory. One woman shared how one time my Grandpa Yingst brought fresh turnips, cleaned and washed for her from the farm. Yet, she chided him and told him that Norma Jean had discarded the best part of the turnips – the greens! Despite having been retired for years, she still remembered being on the receiving end of their wonderful garden.When I saw her earlier this week, the “turnip story” was the first thing that came to my mind. After the doors closed, many co-workers stopped in at the farm to visit with Dad. Dad’s fellow coworker Dick Putnam even worked for him in the fields and around the farm for a few years. Dick provided not only loyal service, but friendship as well. Dick even had the chore of painting my roof,

which he hated every minute of doing. He did a wonderful job. Every time I look at my black roof, I can still see him shaking his head at me as he climbed down. He never complained though. Since his passing last spring, we miss him every day. During those hot summer nights, several workers would tease “Ready to go back to college yet?” as I would stand for hours, lifting, moving and trying to not be a burden on those who got stuck with me. I would just smile and nod my head. So every time you read of another company shutting its doors, remember there is a family — a factory family — being torn from its home. I may never return to the factory floor — thanks to my college education — but I learned more about myself, my family and about the good hearted people that it takes to keep this country running with their blood, sweat and tears – even well after the factory doors have been shut. “Twin” Melanie Yingst appears on Fridays in the Troy Daily News. She should wear a hard hat in the newsroom.

Tubbs sentenced to 26 years in prison Indiana man was convicted of robbing, shooting Piqua man BY WILL E SANDERS Ohio Community Media What took a jury two hours to decide regarding a near-fatal drug robbery at a Piqua park in December has resulted in an Indiana man spending the next 26 years in prison. Aaron D. Tubbs, 28, of Ft. Wayne, stared straight ahead in common pleas court Thursday as Judge Christopher Gee announced the sentence, which came three weeks after a three-day trial and a jury verdict that found the man guilty of attempted murder, aggravated robbery, having a weapon while under disability and trafficking in drugs. On the night of Dec. 5, 2011, Tubbs shot Michael Butts, of Piqua, four times at point blank range during a drug transaction gone wrong after Butts agreed to purchase a pound-anda-half of marijuana from Tubbs for $1,600.

After the shooting, Tubbs fled the scene in a green Taurus and a threeweek manhunt ensued. Tubbs eventually was taken into custody by authorities in Indiana. Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Tony Kendell said Tubbs has a very long criminal history and asked the court for maximum consecutive sentences, which were given in the case. “He has no respect for human life, he has no respect for the law and he presents a danger to the community,” Kendell said. After the sentencing Kendell said he was “very happy” with the sentence, which he called “fair and just.” “We got a bad guy off the streets,” said Kendell, who thanked the Piqua Police Department for their “excellent work” with their investigation. Defense attorney William Kluge told the judge he didn’t have any more to say to “add or subtract in making a determination to the court” and said he suggested to his client he not make a

comment since the case will soon be under appeal. Later asked by the judge if he wanted to make a comment, Tubbs responded by only saying, “Nope.” Kluge said he anticipates an appeal being filed in TUBBS the case Oct. 1 and requested the court to appoint an attorney. Notably absent from the hearing was Butts, who testified during the trial that he “played dead” when Tubbs began shooting him as he sat in his car in the 1300 block of Forest Avenue. “The last time he tried shooting me in the face and I threw up my arms,” Butts testified earlier this month. “I pretended to be dead so he would stop shooting me.” Butts sustained four, close range gunshot wounds to the chin, the right chest, the right abdomen and the right arm

and spent more than a week in the hospital before making a recovery. Butts’ girlfriend, Kara McConnell, spoke in court and said Tubbs, who looked back at McConnell as she spoke, should be thankful he was only being sentenced in court for attempted murder instead of murder. “I want you to know that I will forever be affected by your actions,” she said, her voice quivering at times. “However, I will not be your prisoner. I want you to know I forgive you.” In handing down the sentence the judge said maximum consecutive sentences in the case were needed to protect the public. A breakdown of Tubbs’ sentences consists of, 11 years for attempted murder, 11 years for aggravated robbery, a one year sentence for a weapon specification, and three years for having a weapon while under disability — all to be served consecutively. The remaining sentence of one year for trafficking in drugs will run concurrent to those sentences. Once released from prison, Tubbs will serve a mandatory five-year term of parole and his driver’s license will be suspended for five years.

AP MOVIE REVIEWS • “Dredd 3D” — A wickedly dark comic streak breaks up the vivid violence and relentless bleakness of this 3-D incarnation of the cult-favorite British comic series “2000 A.D.” The visceral visuals, shot in 3-D by Oscar-winning “Slumdog Millionaire” cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle, feature extreme close-ups and sequences of super-cool slow-motion photography, which wisely are spread sparingly throughout the course of the picture. Karl Urban stars as the stoic Judge Dredd, the baddest bad-ass of them all in a dystopian future where enforcers like him serve as judge, jury and executioner. Dredd is the most fearsome of the judges in the squalid, densely populated Mega City One, with his ever-present helmet and a low, monotone grumble that recalls both Christian Bale’s Batman and Clint Eastwood’s Man With No Name. (For the uninitiated, Dredd is actually much funnier than this description makes him sound; his terse, deadpan responses to the most absurd and depraved situations provoke the biggest laughs.) Olivia Thirlby has a calm yet confident presence as the rookie Judge Anderson, who happens to have been assigned to Dredd for training upon one particularly bloody day. Her psychic abilities make her an asset when things get especially chaotic, and her slightly ethereal nature provides a nice complement to Dredd’s intense groundedness. Dredd and Anderson respond to a triple homicide at the Peach Trees housing complex, a 200story ghetto ruled by the ruthless prostitute-turned-drug-lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey). When they take one of her lieutenants

(Wood Harris) into custody, Ma-Ma puts the whole place on lockdown and insists she’ll keep it that way until the judges are killed. R for strong bloody violence, language, drug use and some sexual content. 98 minutes. Three stars out of four. • “End of Watch” — You’ve seen the buddy cop movie a million times before, especially the racially mismatched buddy cop movie.You’ve also seen the found-footage movie a million times before, beginning with the precedent-setting “Blair Witch Project” in 1999 and again in recent years following the success of the low-budget 2007 horror film “Paranormal Activity.” ”End of Watch” combines these two approaches: It’s a racially mismatched buddy cop movie in which the cops record their daily activities while on patrol, from mercilessly teasing each other in the squad car between calls to tracking bad guys through the dangerous streets and narrow alleyways of South Central Los Angeles. But admittedly, the found-footage aesthetic infuses the film with both intimacy and vibrancy; it creates the illusion that what we’re watching is unscripted, and so we feel like we don’t know what’s going to happen from one moment to the next. And co-stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena have such tremendous chemistry with each other, they make you want to ride alongside them all day, despite the many perils in store. R for strong violence, some disturbing images, pervasive language including sexual references and some drug use. 108 minutes. Three stars out of four.

You might want to let this one go Dear Annie: My wife, my granddaughter and I recently took a six-hour flight home. I thought we'd have the middle section to ourselves, but when we boarded, I noticed there were four seats. As I put our carry-on luggage into the overhead bin, I saw my wife plop herself next to a male passenger. Whenever I fly with my wife, she always says she needs to sleep and doesn't want to talk. But on this flight, she started a conversation with this man and never once looked in my direction. When snacks were served, my wife handed one to the guy, but paid no attention to our granddaughter or me. Then, when I pulled out the breakfast sandwiches I had purchased earlier, she gave hers to the male passenger. I was furious. She chatted with this guy for the entire flight. The only time she spoke to me was when she needed me to move in order to use the restroom. When we got home, I questioned her about this. She didn't like my attitude and said that next time she'd sit next to a stranger on the plane instead of me. She even admitted that she knew I was angry during the flight. But she never answered my original question, which is why she was so eager to converse with this fellow when she always tells me she prefers to sleep on long flights. I think she was enjoying flirting. What should I do? I need some peace of mind. — Mahalo in Hawaii Dear Hawaii: Even if your wife was flirting with this guy, please don't turn it into such a big deal. It's not like they exchanged phone numbers. She may have been equally talkative with a female passenger. And for all you know, the guy found her annoying and hoped she'd be quiet so he could get some rest. It was rude for her to ignore you and focus her attention elsewhere, especially knowing that it upset you. But your reaction is only fueling the fire. Unless she makes a habit of flirting with other men, let it go. Dear Annie: I am a 16-yearold girl. There are some guys I'd like to disassociate from. These guys say sexual comments that make me uncomfortable. They have even run by and grabbed me. They don't do this when my boyfriend is around. He's had a few choice words with them, but they refuse to back off. I cannot avoid them, because we live in the same town and I see them at horse sales and truck pulls. I have deleted and blocked them from Facebook, but every time I log on, I see a notification saying they have accepted my friend request when I never sent one. These guys scare me. I have known these guys for four years, and it was never like this until recently. I have started being rude to them and ignoring them if they talk to me. I'm normally a friendly person, and I don't like behaving this way, but I can't take it anymore. — Stressed in N.C. Dear Stressed: These young men are harassing and bullying you. If you are scared, it's time to take action. Inform your parents and the school of the harassment. Then consider taking out a restraining order. They need to know you mean business. Dear Annie: "Exiled" said she lives out of state, but when she visits her folks, they always have other plans. My sister may have felt the same way. We would plan to do things with our parents, and she would call or just show up saying she wanted to come, too. Of course, we would try to accommodate her, but she also expected us to pay. I'd suggest that "Exiled" make the effort to arrange an occasional family outing. She should also make sure she is dressed appropriately. Family members get tired of making excuses for someone who is dressed sloppily and, at the end of the night, doesn't have the money to pay her share. — Harrods Creek, Ky.

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:


Here’s a few hints to safely handle your candles Dear Readers: Here are some very important candle safety hints from our friends at the National Candle Association. Please take a moment to read these reminders: Place candles on heat-resistant candleholders that are large enough to catch wax. Make sure the candleholders are placed on a sturdy surface in a well-ventilated area, but not in the direct path of drafts, etc. Trim down the wick before burning. It should be 1/4 inch long. Long wicks can cause uneven burning. DO NOT burn a candle all the way down. Discard when there is 2 inches of wax left. NEVER leave a burning candle

Hints from Heloise Columnist unattended. Be sure the candle is completely extinguished before leaving the room or house. — Heloise P.S.: Candles are lovely to look at and can add a wonderful aroma, but without correct cautions, they can cause a deadly fire! COOKIES FROM CAKE Dear Heloise: You had a

recipe for making cookies from a boxed cake mix. My friend has lost his copy. He is diabetic and wanted to know if this recipe would work with the sugar-free cake mixes. — Connie, via fax Connie, here you go! This recipe should work with the sugar-free cake mixes, too! Use your favorite flavor cake mix and add 1/4 cup of chopped nuts, raisins or chocolate chips. Here are the basic ingredients: 1 (18.25 ounces) box cake mix 2 eggs 1/2 cup vegetable oil Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix only the above ingredients until blended in a mixing bowl. Drop spoonfuls of batter onto a

baking sheet (ungreased) about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes. They brown quickly, so watch them very carefully. Ovens vary, so place the baking sheet on the middle rack and stand by for the first batch. These are quick and easy treats that go great with coffee. Want to know some of my other favorite (family and friends) cake recipes? Order my pamphlet by sending $3 and a long, selfaddressed, stamped (65 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Cake Recipes, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. To easily release a cake from the pan, be sure it’s cool, then run a knife around the edges. — Heloise












HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Saturday, Sept. 22, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Today the Sun moves opposite your sign for the next month. Because the Sun is your source of energy, and it’s as far away from you as it gets all year, this means you’re going to need more sleep. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) During the next six weeks, you’re keen to get better organized. You’ll also want to improve your health. Time to turn over a new leaf! GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You’re entering one of the most playful months of the year. Take a vacation if you can. Enjoy romance, sports, movies, parties and playful times with kids. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your attention turns to home, family and your domestic life during the next six weeks. Conversations with parents will be significant. (Time to cocoon.) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) The pace of your days will accelerate in the month ahead, so get ready! Short trips, conversations with others and increased reading and writing will keep you on the go. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Expect to give more thought to finances and cash flow during the next month. But at a deeper level, you’ll be wondering what really matters in life. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Because the Sun is in your sign for the next month, it’s your turn to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. You’ll attract people and favorable situations. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Work alone or behind the scenes during the next month. Figure out what you want your new year (birthday to birthday) to be all about. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A popular time ahead! In the next six weeks, accept all invitations. Enjoy the company of others. Sign up for classes, or join clubs. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) For the next six weeks, the Sun will act like a spotlight on you. This is why people will notice you more than usual, especially bosses and VIPs. Hey! This lighting is flattering! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Travel during the next month. Do whatever you can to expand your horizons and get more out of life through learning and discovering adventure. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Focus on reducing debt and cleaning up loose details about inheritances, insurance matters and shared property. Many of you will feel unusually passionate in the next month as well! YOU BORN TODAY You want to know a myriad of things about endless subjects! You eagerly begin new projects because you love stimulation and you are naturally spontaneous. However, you are private. (Sometimes you shock others, which you rarely realize.) This coming year, something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish in order to make room for something new.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Friday, Sept. 21, the 265th day of 2012. There are 101 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 21, 1912, magician Harry Houdini first publicly performed his so-called “Chinese Water Torture Cell” trick at the Circus Busch in Berlin, escaping after being immersed upside-down in a vertical water tank, his ankles secured in a set of stocks which made up the tank lid, which was locked into place. On this date: • In 1893, one of America’s first

horseless carriages was taken for a short test drive in Springfield, Mass., by Frank Duryea, who had designed the vehicle with his brother, Charles. • In 1897, the New York Sun ran its famous editorial, written anonymously by Francis P. Church, which declared, “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.” • In 1937, “The Hobbit,” by J.R.R. Tolkien, was first published by George Allen & Unwin, Ltd. of London. • In 1948, Milton Berle made his debut as permanent host of “The Texaco Star Theater” on NBC-TV.

that. We love aspirin and encourage patients to be on aspirin because they have heart disease,” she said. B is for blood pressure, C is for cholesterol and D is for diet. “Knowing your numbers for blood pressure and cholesterol are keys, and a good diet can help improve many heart disease issues,” Hoying stressed. Talking with one’s doctor about whether to take aspirin is important, the doctors said, because of aspirin’s blood thinning effect. That effect makes aspirin useful in treating coronary and vascular disease. Historically, it was recommended people in general take an aspirin every morning, but that no longer is the case, Dr. Czajka said. “There are definite indications to take aspirin, but there is a risk of bleeding so you have to meet definite criteria to make a recommendation,” Dr. Cullis said. The thinking also has changed when it comes to blood pressure and hypertension, Dr. Czajka said. An acceptable blood pressure today can be 140/90 with the best time to take the blood pressure shortly after getting up in the morning, he said. The signs of heart trouble may be different in men and women. Hoying said women are more likely to complain of pain in the shoulder blades and being tired and more short of breath than in the past. The care providers also were questioned about exercise and how much is needed. “Exercise as much as you can. Stay on the move” whether running, walking, doing housework or yard work, Dr. Czajka said. Dr. Cullis said a rule of thumb would be 30 minutes of exercise daily at a vigorous pace for walking, running and jogging, if physically possible.

Vikings, Bees look for momentum in rivalry game BY COLIN FOSTER Associate Sports Editor


Bethel and Miami East — two teams that have been near or at the top of the Cross County Conference standings for several years — are gearing to take the field tonight in Casstown in a game Viking coach Max Current calls the “Backyard Brawl.” Only this time around, the rivals are headed in opposite directions. The Vikings have ran off three straight wins after suffering a loss in their opener to Milton-Union. However, East’s upcoming stretch of the season includes defending CCC champion and undefeated Covington (Sept. 28), Tri-County North (Oct. 5) and Bradford (Oct. 12) all in a row. As for the Bees, after crushing Northridge in Week 1, they have lost three consecutive games. But the schedule for Bethel — which features youth at several skill positions — hasn’t done it any favors. Bethel went toe-to-toe with Bradford in Week 2 before falling 26-13. Bethel was taken down by Covington the next week, then played returning CCC runner-up Tri-County North close, losing 217 in Week 3. “They might only have one win,

but they had a good game against Bradford,” Current said. “They had a good showing against North. That game was locked at 14-7 for the longest time. So they are a play or two away from winning those games.” The Bees must stop the Vikings’ running attack, which features Colton Holicki (32 carries, 251 yards and two touchdowns) and Colton McKinney (22 carries, 201 yards, two TDs), if they hope win this game. Bethel must also win the special teams battle if they hope to have a shot. Michael Fellers — who was selected to the All-State team last season — is a special teams threat in all aspects. He

Prior to that moment, the Vikings blocked a punt, which set up a rushing score by Fellers on the next play. East scored 14 points in the first quarter by running one total play on offense. ”The first key is making sure were doing the right things,” Bethel coach Kevin Finfrock said. “We know they are fast. We know they have speed. Their linemen are fast, so it’s key for us to match up against that.” Bethel, however, also has a spe-


MADISON (3-1, 1-0) at MILTON-UNION (3-1, 0-0): Milton-Union escaped with a 40-28 Week 4 win over Bellbrook, thanks to its defense making stops late in the game. Now, the Bulldogs play Madison, which boasts an identical 3-1 record. Madison, however, has yet to beat a team with a winning record as its opponents — Deer Park, Indian Hill, Wyoming and Northridge — have a combined record of 3-13 on the season. Other than a big Week 1 victory over Miami East, Milton-Union has had to battle its way to each of its other two wins. Expect another war for the battle-tested Bulldogs this week, only this time to kick off SWBL Buckeye Division play. COVINGTON (4-0, 3-0) at TRI-COUNTY NORTH (3-1, 3-0): From here on out, it’s one test after another for the Covington Buccs ... but they don’t seem to mind. What was supposed to be one of Covington’s toughest tests all year against Bradford in Week 4 turned ugly fast. The Buccs put up 28 points in the first quarter — and held Roaders’ running back James Canan in check — en route to winning 56-6. This time around, the Buccs face Cross County Conference runnerup from last year Tri-County North, which is 3-1 on the season. If the Buccs come to play like they did last week, though, this game could be no contest. BRADFORD (3-1, 2-1) at ANSONIA (0-4, 0-3): Another game against Ansonia might be just what Bradford needs following a big letdown verse Covington last week. The Railroaders took down the Tigers 48-12 to start the season. Since then, Bradford has went 2-1, beating the likes of Bethel and National Trail. As of now, the Railroaders sit fifth in the Division VI, Region 24 playoff race. After this week, Bradford faces Tri-County North — the No. 7 team in the region — then faces Arcanum and Miami East in the coming weeks. But from here on out, the Roaders must take it one game at a time if they hope to continue their push to the playoffs. PIQUA (2-2) at SPRINGBORO (4-0): Piqua is about as 50-50 a team as possible. After a narrow defeat at the hands of GWOC Central crossover opponent Beavercreek, the Indians are now 2-2, have scored 87 points and have given up 87 points on the season. That will change — for better or worse — this weekend when the Indians travel to Springboro to face the unbeaten GWOC South-leading Panthers. With a win on the road at Centerville already this year, Springboro looks like the real deal. RIVERSIDE (1-3, 0-0) at LEHMAN (1-3, 0-1): Lehman’s road this season has been rocky thus far. After coming from behind to beat Indian Lake in Week 3, the Cavaliers had a 35-0 loss to Ft. Loramie last week. A game against Riverside, a team that is also 1-3 this year, could be the perfect opportunity for Lehman to get back on track. But in order to do that, the Lehman offense — which has scored 28 points this season — needs to come ready to play on Friday.

cial teams weapon in Brandon Garlough. Garlough — who scored the Bees’ only touchdown last week against North on a 62-yard run — is the punter, place kicker and is the leading rusher. The Bethel senior can be a gamechanger as he proved in the Bradford game when he broke loose for a 47-yard TD. Through four games this season, the Bees’ offense has scored 55 points offense, while their defense has allowed 110. Since the Vikings gave up 42 points against Milton in Week 1, their defense has only given up 12 points over the next three. East’s offense has

MIAMI COUNTY LEADERS TIPPECANOE (4-0) at BEN LOGAN (1-3): Coming off a big win over Indian Lake last weekend, Tippecanoe is in search of another victory this week against Ben Logan, a 48-14 loser to Bellefontaine in Week 4. Ben Logan’s only win came against Riverside in Week 1. Since then, the team has lost three straight games by large margins. As for Tipp, its defense has allowed a mere 14 points through four weeks, while its offense has scored 191 through four games — and that has been Tipp’s recipe for success all year. The Red Devils look like the favorite in the CBC Kenton Trail Division more and more — with division play kicking off next week.

scored at least 37 points in its last three wins. “We’ve got to make sure we have no turnovers,” Current said. “We need to keep the ball away from their offense and control the line of scrimmage. Their ‘D’ has some aggressive players up front. That (Gus) Schwieterman boy is probably the best lineman in the league.” A win for the Vikings would give them a full head of steam heading into their final games of the season, which could very well determine a playoff spot and the league title. But for Current, it’s all about taking it one game at a time. “If you contend for the league championship, it’s a nine-step process. This is step four. We can’t get to step nine if we stumble and fall down the stairs.” As for Bethel, a victory could do a lot for its psyche heading into a five-game stretch against some beatable teams. To win this game, though, both teams must come prepared for battle, especially consider the nature of the rivalry. “These kids live right next door,” Current said. “The kids know each other well. It’s a big game for Miami County. We’re playing against a team that’s dangerous, and hungry to get a win.”

Seven straight for Troy Seniors go out with 3-2 victory Staff Reports TROY — Fairmont gave Troy all they could handle on senior night, but the Trojans were able to send off their seniors with a 32 victory on Senior Night — Troy’s third 3-2 victory in its last five matches. “It was nice to pull out another 3-2 team win on Senior Night,” Troy coach Mark Goldner said.

MIAMI COUNTY And senior Mayu Ohtsuka, playing at third singles, was the hero. She bounced back from a first-set defeat to defeat Kayle Springhant in three, 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 to snap a 2-2 tie and seal Troy’s win. Ivy Smith lost to Allison Bendel at first singles 6-1,6-1.

Viking girls rout Bees, 5-0 Bethel boys hold off Miami East Staff Reports CASSTOWN — Set pieces were key tonight in Miami East’s 5-0 victory over visiting Bethel in Cross County Conference play. Three of the Vikings’ five goals came from set pieces. “It was definitely nice finishing on free kicks,” Miami East coach Lil Carson said. “That’s something we haven’t been doing particularly well, and to get three tonight, that was good for us.”

Staff Reports TROY — It’s been quite a couple of weeks for the Troy Trojans. Even so, next week is the biggest test.

MIAMI COUNTY Troy has built up plenty of momentum going into next week’s postseason Greater Western Ohio Conference Tournament — which will decide the GWOC North champion. The Trojans made their final regular-season push towards that goal, defeating rival Piqua 155-165 Thursday at Miami Shores. “That’s our fourth win in the last three days. It’s been a great week,” Troy coach Ty Mercer said. Troy swept a tri-match on

MIAMI COUNTY Miami East started the scoring just four minutes into the game as Kylie Brown onetouched a Katrina Sutherly corner kick into the net. Later, Anna Snyder sent one to the top of the box from the midfield, and as the Bethel keeper came out for it, Montana Hahn looped it over the keeper’s head for a goal. Sutherly rounded out the first-half scoring

Milestone night Troy clinches share of GWOC North, Owen gets 100th victory Staff Reports

Minus manager, Reds clinch playoff spot Dusty Baker was missing when the Cincinnati Reds became the first team in the majors to clinch a playoff spot. The main man in the dugout was sidelined Thursday for a second straight game after being diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat. See Page B5.

SIDNEY — Troy coach Michelle Owen’s 100th career victory carried some extra meaning. That’s because, along with the milestone, the Trojans clinched at least a share of the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division title Thursday night, sweeping Sidney in impressive fashion 25-8, 25-11, 25-17 on the road. Now the Trojans (11-4, 4-0 GWOC North) — the only unbeaten team left in divisional play — have a chance to win the

MIAMI COUNTY title by themselves if they can defeat defending champion Piqua next week. “It’s pretty cool,” Owen said. “We clinched a share of the title tonight, and we can win it outright if we take care of business against Piqua Tuesday. “The girls plyed well tonight. We wanted to serve fast, get them out of system and run our offense, and the girls executed.” Jenna Selby had 15 kills and three aces, Jen Monnier had nine

Woods shares lead ATLANTA (AP) — Tiger Woods sure didn’t look intimidated Thursday in the Tour Championship. Woods kept the ball in play at East Lake and chipped in for one of his six birdies on his way to a 4-under 66 that gave him a share of the lead with Justin Rose. It was the first step toward what Woods hopes is another FedEx Cup title, and another $10 million bonus. Rory McIlroy, playing with Woods for the fifth time in these playoffs, saved par on the last hole for a 69. The week began with Greg Norman saying that Woods was intimidated by McIlroy, a suggestion that both players found amusing. While it’s doubtful that inspired Woods, he

played as if he wasn’t ready to let McIlroy win a third straight playoff event and capture the FedEx Cup. McIlroy, who has won three of his last four tournaments, and Woods are among the top five seeds at East Lake who only have to win the Tour Championship to claim the largest payoff in golf. Woods wasn’t interested in what anyone else was doing. “Just winning,” he said. “Winning takes care of everything.” • Navistar LPGA Classic PRATTVILLE, Ala. — Lexi Thompson made a little more history in the Navistar LPGA Classic, opening her title defense with a career-best 9-under 63 to match the tourna-

ment record. Last year, Thompson became the youngest champion in LPGA Tour history at age 16, winning by five strokes. Fifteenyear-old amateur Lydia Ko broke the record last month in the Canadian Women’s Open. Thompson had nine birdies in her bogey-free round on the links-style Senator course at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail’s Capitol Hill complex. She missed only one green in regulation and had 26 putts. Lizette Salas and Hee Young Park were tied for second at 65, and thirdranked Stacy Lewis was another stroke back along with Karen Stupples, Amanda Blumenherst, Wendy Ward and Mi Hyang Lee.

John Cash said. “This was a whole team effort. They were ready to play us, but we were ready to play them. It was great preparation for the weekend.” The Vikings won a close first game 25-22, but then easily handled their opponents winning the next two games 25-9 and 25-12. Abby Cash led the way for Miami East by totaling of triple-double with 10 kills, 10 digs and 24 assists. Sam Cash had 17 kills, one ace, two blocks, three digs and 18 assists, Leah Dunivan had 11 kills, two blocks and five digs, Angie Mack had five kills, five blocks and three digs, Trina Current had five kills and two digs, Allie Millhouse had two aces and 20 figs, Ashley Current had three kills and one block and Allison Morrett had one ace and 11 digs. Miami East will play in

the Piqua Invitation on Saturday. Fort Loramie 3, Lehman 0 SIDNEY — With senior Ellie Waldsmith out of the game due to a concussion, Lehman lost a close match to Fort Loramie 25-19, 2725, 27-25. “You would always like to have all your players,” Lehman coach Greg Snipes said. “Other people need to step up. It isn’t like we didn’t have our chances. We had several game points and just weren’t able to close out. We gave up too many big runs.” Ellie Cain had 13 kills and 19 assists, Olivia Slagle had six kills and five blocks, Andrea Thobe had 12 kills and 15 assists and Ava Schmitz had 12 digs. Lehman will be at the Piqua Invitational, playing its opening match at 9 a.m. on Saturday.

Newton 5, TC North 1 PLEASANT HILL — Newton defeated visiting Tri-County North on Thursday 5-1. For Newton, Erin Sweitzer had two goals and Halee Mollette had one goal and two assists. Katie Houk and Billy Lavy each had a goal. Jenny Beacom and Marissa Kleman both added assists. Carly Fink scored the lone goal for Tri-County North. The win improves Newton’s record to 5-3-1. • Boys Bethel 4, ME 0 BETHEL — Bethel got back on the winning track with a 4-0 win over Miami East on Thursday. “We passed the ball well and got a couple early goals to relax the kids,”

Bethel coach Bob Hamlin said. Brandon Swank had two goals and one assist and Ethan Vankilburg had two goals to lead the Bees to victory. The win moves Bethel to 4-4-2 on the season and Miami East drops to 1-7-1. Bethel will be at home on Monday against Greeneview. Newton 9, TC North 1 PLEASANT HILL — Newton rolled to yet another victory Thursday night, crushing TriCounty North 9-1. Jonny White had two goals and an assist, Dustin Coate and Austin Flanary each had two goals, Daniel Vance and Levi Armentrout both had a goal and two assists, Mitch Hussong had a goal and an assist, Leo Rossi had two assists and Logan Welbaum had an assist. In each of Newton’s past three games, the Indians have had at least six different scorers. Newton (6-1-1, 3-1 Cross County Conference) take on Lehman Saturday.

It’s been a great week, but golf is a fickle game. One week you can have it, and the next it could be gone. So we’re just going to keep working at it and stay positive.” • CBC Tournament SPRINGFIELD — The Central Buckeye Conference tournament hasn’t been kind to the Tippecanoe Red Devils in the last 10 years.

team score of 323 at Reid Park’s North course, beating out Tecumseh — which ended up winning the overall CBC title, with the Devils the runners-up. “It was a great day to be a Red Devil,” Tippecanoe coach Aaron Jackson said. “It was the first time in over a decade that the Tippecanoe boys have won the CBC tournament. With the win, we finished second overall for the season behind Tecumseh — which is again the best finish for a Tippecanoe boys golf team in over a decade.” Tippecanoe was led by Austin Hadden and Wyatt Wilson, both shooting a team-best 79. They were followed by Steven Calhoun with an 82, Evan Hood with an 83, Joey Fischer with 94 and Jack Pelisheck with 108. The Tippecanoe girls also won the CBC Tournament and were overall league champions. Further details were not provided at time of press.

■ CONTINUED FROM B3 Tuesday, then the Trojans defeated Chaminade Julienne on Wednesday leading up to Thursday’s crucial divisional showdown. In fact, CJ is the last team to defeat Troy, winning 165-166 in a road match last week. Since then, Troy has ran off five consecutive victories. “Everyone’s pretty excited, and obviously I’m excited for the guys,” Mercer said. “We’ve got a lot of guys shooting sub-40 rounds right now.” Freshman Troy Moore led the way on Thursday with a personal-best 36 — par on the course — tied with teammate Connor Super for the best round on the day. Dalton Cascaden added a 38 — his fourth straight round below 40 after shooting a 40 in the loss to CJ — and Kaleb Tittle rounded out the scoring with a 40. Cam Weaver added a 41 and Dylan Cascaden shot a 43. “Everyone is feeling pretty good right now,” Mercer said. “We’re pretty happy with where our games are at right now. I think we’re peaking at the right time.” Brad Anderson led Piqua (5-4, 1-3 GWOC North) with a 39, Cody Congdon shot a 41,

Playoff-bound Reds


With Baker still in hospital, Cincy clinches spot in postseason CHICAGO (AP) — Dusty Baker was missing when the Cincinnati Reds became the first team in the majors to clinch a playoff spot. The main man in the dugout was sidelined Thursday for a second straight game after being diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat. “Obviously we won the last two games for him. We have him in our thoughts, but we got good news on his update,” reliever Sean Marshall said after a 5-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs. “Hopefully he’ll be back with us tomorrow and when it really matters, when we clinch (the division). Hopefully we get to celebrate this weekend with him,” he said. Ace Johnny Cueto and the NL Central leaders ensured themselves of at least a wild-card spot. Cincinnati cut its magic number to two for winning the division for the second time in three years. The Reds said Baker would remain in a Chicago hospital for an additional day so doctors could monitor his progress. The manager left Wrigley Field before Wednesday night’s game and underwent another test Thursday. Baker is expected to return to Cincinnati on Friday. Bench coach Chris Speier ran the team for a second straight game. “He looked good. Very good. He’ll be there tomorrow,” said general manager Walt Jocketty, who visited Baker on Thursday morning. Jocketty said he didn’t know if Baker would be able to manage when the Reds open a series at home against the Dodgers. “”Chris Speier did an excellent job, but I think he’s (Dusty) missed and we’re looking forward to having him back, and more importantly, we’re hoping for the best with his health,” star first baseman Joey Votto said. “I know he’s excited and happy, just wish that he was here to partake in it, but he’ll be back soon,” Speier said. Cueto (18-9) pitched six shutout innings as the Red completed a three-game sweep.


Cincinnati Reds center fielder Denis Phipps can’t get to a ball hit by Chicago Cubs’ Starlin Castro that went for a triple in the fourth inning in Chicago Thursday. The Reds broke a scoreless tie by getting five straight singles off reliever Manuel Corpas (0-2) in the seventh during a five-run rally capped by Henry Rodriguez’s two-run double. Chicago starter Jason Berken allowed just two hits in six innings against a lineup missing most of the Reds’ regulars. “I was able to get a couple of jams, great defense behind me, stayed on the same page the whole game,” Berken said. Cueto gave up five hits with four walks and broke three-game losing a streak. “I don’t think that was the best stuff he’s ever had. You can tell he might be getting a little tired at the end of the year or whatever, but I’ve seen him with a lot better stuff,” Chicago manager Dale Sveum said. The Cubs scored in the seventh on Anthony Rizzo’s RBI single and in the eighth on Welington Castillo’s fifth homer again. Rizzo had an RBI grounder in the ninth against Alfredo Simon, who pitched the final 1 1-3 innings for his first save in as many chances. The Reds secured their second playoff appearance in three years despite having the back of their

bullpen wiped out by injuries during spring training and losing their best hitter 2010 National League MVP Votto for nearly two months. Baker did some of his best managing to pull them through.

His first challenge was cobbling together a bullpen after closer Ryan Madson tore an elbow ligament in spring training, ending his season. Setup men Nick Masset and Bill Bray also got hurt before the season opened.

■ CONTINUED FROM B3 1. At second doubles, Katie played with confidence.” Maryn Moor and Megan Miller defeated Meredith Orozco and Holly Riley 6-4, 6-4 at first doubles. Kelly and Marina Fischer Wehrkamp defeated Nicole Cordonnier and Angela Cooney 6-4, 6-2 at second doubles. The win — the Trojans’ seventh straight — pushes Troy’s record to 11-5 on the season heading into a huge Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division match against Butler on Monday. The Aviators are currently in first in the GWOC North with a 3-0 record, meaning Troy — which sits tied for second with Greenville at 3-1 — needs a win to earn a share of the division title. Tipp 5, Greenon 0 TIPP CITY — With three matches left in Central Buckeye Conference play, the Tippecanoe Red Devils still have yet to be touched. The Devils are a perfect 13-0 in CBC play after a 5-0 rout of Greenon Thursday, with only one school still realistically in striking distance during the final week of the season next week. Leading the charge as always was Sierra Nellessen at first singles. The senior remains undefeated in CBC play for her entire career after defeating Megan Reed 6-0, 6-0. At second singles, Taylor Sutton defeated Shelby Marshall 6-4, 6-0. At third singles, Nefeli Supinger defeated Shawn McMahan 6-1, 6-1. At first doubles, Katie Stenger and Nadia Mahan defeated Kaitlyn Bandel and Kassie Lambert 6-1, 6-

Gross and Miu Tanaka defeated Kirsten Diviak and Marissa Brown 6-2, 6-2. Tippecanoe (15-1 overall) plays at the Carroll Invitational Saturday at Tom Cloud Park before finishing its run through league play. The Devils face Shawnee Monday before the big showdown at secondplace Northwestern Tuesday, then finish up at Tecumseh Thursday. M-U 5, Brookville 0 BROOKVILLE — Milton-Union traveled to Brookville for their final dual match of the season and won 5-0 Thursday. “I am very proud of the girls and how well they played,” Milton-Union coach Sharon Paul said. Brooke Falb defeated Sidney Cera at first singles 4-6, 6-1, 3-0. At second singles, Jesica Ferguson beat Jennifer Hinton 6-3, 6-2. At third singles, Sarah Black defeated Millie Rohrer 6-3, 6-3. At first doubles, Kayla Smith and Claire Fetters defeated Sarah Bowen and Brianna Coss 6-1, 7-6 (4). At second doubles, Katie Purtee and Lizzie Fetters defeated Joey Benkley and Janie Winterbotham 6-3, 61. The Bulldogs (14-3 overall) are now preparing for tournament play leading up to the postseason. MiltonUnion will play in the Southwestern Buckeye League Tournament at Tom Cloud Park in Huber Heights on Tuesday. “We are in first place in our league now,” Paul said. “We don’t take anything for granted. We will have to be ready to play.”

Michael’s Power wins Little Brown Jug DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) — Michael’s Power won the Little Brown Jug on Thursday, beating Sweet Lou by 1 3/4 lengths in the second leg of the Triple Crown for 3-year-old pacers. Driven by the Scott Zeron and trained by Casie Coleman, Michael’s Power had the fastest opening quarter in event history at 25.2 seconds, and finished the mile in 1:50.0. In getting to the lead, Zeron was able to control the race and hold off Sweet Lou and thirdplace Bettor’s Edge. “I was going right down the road,” Zeron said. “The (first quarter) scared me a little bit. It’s an absolute honor. He’s easy to drive. I can’t believe I won the Little Brown Jug.” Michael’s Power, owned by Jeffery Snyder of New York, has 13 victories in 16 starts this season with earnings over $1.2 million. He was lightly raced as a 2-year-old, making only three starts, winning twice. Coleman became the second female trainer to win the Little Brown Jug.

“Since I was a little kid, I was eager to watch this race, let alone have a horse in it,” Coleman said. “It’s just unbelievable. It really hasn’t sunk in yet, but the Little Brown Jug is just awesome. “I never give a driver instructions. I told him win. That was his only instruction.” Dynamic Youth won the Cane Pace, the first leg of the Triple Crown, but wasn’t eligible for the Little Brown Jug and his owners decided not to enter the race as a supplemental entry. The third leg of the Triple Crown is the Messenger Stakes at Yonkers Raceway on Nov. 10. Michael’s Power and Sweet Lou won the elimination heats. In winning the first elimination in 1:52.3, Michael’s Power followed Bolt The Duer until the head of the strength and won by a nose. Bolt The Duer was scratched from the final. Sweet Lou won his elimination in 1:51.0 for driver Dave Palone, leading wire-to-wire.

■ Troy Notebook

Injured Barr out, Benson in at quarterback BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor Like a pebble thrown into a still pond, one injury to the Troy football team is about to have a ripple effect. “The dominoes will fall now,” Troy coach Scot Brewer said. “That’s the problem when you don’t have any depth. Now we’ve got to try to patch the holes.” This much is certain — starting quarterback Matt Barr will miss this week’s game against Miamisburg with a knee injury. Barr — a junior who has completed 34 of 62 passes for 392 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions — suffered a knee injury in the second half of last week’s game against Springfield. How long he’ll be out is uncertain. “We’re just taking it week by week,” Brewer said. “But he’s definitely




out this week.” Joe Benson, a junior, will start in place of Barr this week. He came on to finish last week’s came when Barr was injured. He threw one pass — an incompletion — and had two carries for 13 yards. Backing up Benson will be sophomores T.J. Michael and Billy Smith. “He’s poised and he has a positive attitude,” Brewer said of Benson. “He’s got deceptive speed. He turned the corner on that bootleg against Springfield and they all

MAGOTEAUX had an angle they thought was alright, but he ended up picking up 17 yards on the play.” While Benson’s move into the starting role settles things at quarterback, it leaves a number of things unsettled on the defense. Benson had been starting at outside linebacker for the Trojans, where he had 14 tackles, three tackles for loss, a quarterback sack and four passes broken up on the season. With his move to quarterback, Brewer has no intention of



playing him on defense. He’ll explore a number of options in filling the outside linebacker position. One option has Brewer moving junior Alex Magoteaux into the starting role. Magoteaux has 11 tackles and a quarterback sack this season. “Alex plays great in space,” Brewer said. “He could definitely play there if we need him to.” Another option would be to move starting safety Nick Zimmer back to outside linebacker, where he played last season.

SCHLOSSER Zimmer has 26 tackles, one interception and two tackles for loss playing safety this year. Should Brewer move Zimmer to outside linebacker, it like would mean inserting senior Logan Perkins in at safety. Perkins was injured during the summer and missed all of preseason camp with a broken collarbone. He’s been medically cleared to play, but is just now rounding into football shape. “He shattered his collarbone and had all kinds

of plates and pins put in it,” Brewer said. “He’s been cleared to play, but there’s still an acclimation period. He’s just started to practice with us in the past few weeks. We’re not going to rush things with him.” • THE USUAL SUSPECT: It’s become so commonplace for inside linebacker Logan Schlosser to turn in a big game that when Brewer was asked Monday he stood out on defense in last week’s game, he immediately responded, “You know, the usual suspect.” Schlosser indeed turned in another big game for the Trojans, leading the team in tackles with 13, while also turning in two tackles for loss, causing a fumble and recovering a fumble. For the season, Schlosser has 48 tackles, three tackles for loss, a quarterback sack and a pass broken up.

Tipp’s ‘TNT’

’Burg offense has familiar look

Defensive line blowing up opposition BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor When Tippecanoe coach Charlie Burgbacher refers to his three starting defensive linemen as his team’s “TNT,” he isn’t using the STAFF FILE PHOTOS/MARK DOWD term as a nickname. He’s merely referring to their Tippecanoe’s Jacob Cox (55) blocks a field goal on the last play of the first half durpositions: tackle, nose ing the Red Devils’ 27-0 victory over Milton-Union in Week 3. guard, tackle.

BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor Scot Brewer knows a thing or two about the offense his Troy football team will face this week. He should — he played in it for four years. “This offense looks almost exactly like Steve Nolan’s wing-t, circa 1992-93,” said Brewer, who played under Nolan, the man who preceded him as coach at Troy, in the early 1990s. “They run buck sweep, trap, belly, waggle, belly keep, jet — all the stuff we did around here for a long time. Their coach knows it well. I’m sure he’ll throw some new wrinkles at us.” After several years of struggling — Miamisburg went 9-41 during a fiveyear stretch from 20062011 — the Vikings appear to be on the upswing under new head coach Steve Channell. Channell — who led Edgewood to 10 Division II playoff appearances, including a state runnerup finish in 2003 — already has guided the Vikings to a 2-2 mark this season, matching their win total from last season. “He’s done a nice job down there,” Brewer said. “They are playing well.” Offensively, the Vikings spread the ball around — four different running backs have double-digit carries this season. Leading the way is Joe Dunham, who has 32 carries for 158 yards and three touchdowns. Unlike many wing-t teams, Miamisburg throws the ball with some frequency. Junior quarterback Lance Brockman has completed 39 of 70 passes for 382 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. “Their quarterback is good,” Brewer said. “He’s just a player. They don’t do anything real flashy — they are just good, hardnosed kids. They are pretty big up front. They’ve got good guards and a big ol’ boy at tackle. He’s a 300-pounder, and he moves really well.” Troy will counter with a defense that had been atop the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division until giving up 27 points last week against Springfield. “Giving up 27 points is unacceptable,” Brewer said. “We’ve got to come back from that.” Brewer said the Vikings bring that same tough approach to defense. Through four games, Miamisburg is ranked second in the

TROY GWOC South Division, giving up 271.5 yards and 21.0 points per game. “They are sound defensively — really sound,” Brewer said. “They are not real big at certain positions — but man are they tough. They were totally outweighed by Butler’s offensive line — they gave up 4 inches and 60 pounds per man, but they stood right up to them. They are tough kids and we’ve got to be prepared for that.” Troy will counter with an offense in a state of flux. The Trojans have struggled to move the ball in three of their four games this season — and their troubles will be compounded by the fact starting quarterback Matt Barr will be out with a knee injury. Joe Benson will start in place of the injured Barr. Turnovers and big plays on special teams could be key for the Trojans this week. Of the 13 touchdowns the Trojans have scored this season, eight have come as a result of the defense creating a turnover or a long kickoff return. In last week’s game against Springfield, one touchdown was an interception return, while the other was set up by an 81-yard kickoff return. For the second time this season, Troy will have to rebound from a heartbreaking loss. In the season opener, Troy lost 2114 to Chaminade Julienne in the game’s final minutes. Last week, Troy had a chance to beat Springfield, but fumbled the ball away at the Wildcat 12 in the game’s final minutes and ended up losing 27-21. Troy rebounded from the CJ loss with a 41-14 win over Springfield Shawnee the next week. Brewer is counting on his team to show that same resilience against Miamisburg. “I would expect us to do the same thing,” Brewer said. “I expect us to go back to work. I let them know Saturday that I’m not ready to quit — and I don’t expect them to, either. It’s time to get back to work and get better. It’s going to be a tough week of practive. (Troy Athletic Director) Jeff Sakal pointed out to me that we’re two plays away from being 4-0 — and he’s right. But what can you do? You’ve just got to keep working and that’s what we’ll do.”

Thaddeus Snodgrass, a wide receiver from Springfield in the 2014 recruiting class, has offers from Ohio State, Georgia Tech, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Purdue, Wisconsin and others. He caught a 70-yard touchdown pass against Troy last Friday. Jonathan Haden, a running back from Friendship Academy (Washington, D.C.) in the 2014 recruiting class, lists Ohio State as one of his favorites. He is the brother of Cleveland Browns defensive back Joe Haden. Chris Worley, a 2013 linebacker/ defensive back, and Marshon Lattimore, a 2014 defensive back, could become the latest members of the Cleveland Glenville pipeline to Ohio State. Both have offers from OSU.

Last season, Williams He has completed only 52 percent of his passes. caught 58 passes. Advantage: Ohio State Advantage: Ohio State

OFFENSIVE LINE Ohio State leads the Big Ten in scoring and is second in rushing yards. But the line, along with the rest of the offense, has had troubling stretches of inconsistency. Last week after jumping out to a 20-7 lead on California, the Buckeyes had only two first downs in their next seven offensive series. Chris Hubbard, a two-year starter at left tackle, is the standout on the line on a UAB offense which ranks 108th nationally in scoring and 114th in rushing. Advantage: Ohio State

DEFENSIVE LINE OSU had a season-high six sacks against California and three of those belonged to defensive linemen – Johnathan Hankins, Garrett Goebel and John Simon. Hankins had 10 tackles in that game. Depth continues to be a concern with Michael Bennett out with a groin injury, Nathan Williams playing while still recovering from knee surgery in 2011 and Simon battling a sore shoulder. UAB is giving up almost six yards per rushing play and ranks 109th nationally in rushing defense. Advantage: Ohio State


JORDAN HALL The 5-foot-9, 194-pound running back from Jeannette, Pa. returned to the OSU backfield on Saturday, rushing for 87 yards on 17 carries. He was returning after surgery to repair a torn tendon in his foot in late June.

RUNNING BACKS Jordan Hall returned from foot surgery to rush for a rather quiet 87 yards last week. He and coach Urban Meyer both said he looked rusty. One thing that might have been overlooked is that Hall brought a heightened sense of security to Miller in passing situations because of his blocking. Running the football will not appear on a list of things UAB does best. The Blazers are averaging 80 yards a game on the ground and their leading rusher Darrin Reaves averages 29 yards a game. Advantage: Ohio State

Ryan Shazier had 13 tackles, just two short of his career best, in the win over California, and Etienne Sabino had seven tackles and a sack. Middle linebacker remains a question mark. Sophomore middle linebacker Curtis Grant has struggled at times. Reinstated Storm Klein got back on the field in his first game back after going to court on a domestic violence charge and being found guilty of a lesser offense. For UAB, Marvin Burdette is the most experienced player on the defense with 28 career starts. He is in the top 10 on the Blazers’ career tackles list. Advantage: Ohio State

DEFENSIVE BACKS Ohio State had tackling problems several times against California in the secondary and there have been coverage issues at times this season, also. C.J. Barnett had 10 tackles and Reggie Roby had eight last week. Christian Bryant’s interception clinched the win over California. Safety Jake Ganus has UAB’s only interception. Advantage: Ohio State

SPECIAL TEAMS Kicker Drew Basil has attempted only one field goal. His missed extra point on OSU’s first touchdown against California was his second in 53 career attempts. UAB’s Ty Long is 3 of 3 on field goals, with a long of 46 yards. Ohio State has defended kick returns well and UAB is averaging -1 yard per punt return. Advantage: Ohio State

COLUMBUS — Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer has not built his reputation by playing it safe or going down the middle. The foundation of his football philosophy is being aggressive and relentless. He is known for speaking bluntly. But there is one question on which he has not staked out a strong position. Ask him if OSU quarterback Braxton Miller is a Heisman Trophy candidate and he will play it safe. Realistically, it’s early to speculate if Miller is Heisman worthy after three good games this season and a promising but uneven freshman season. But, hey, that’s the American way. It’s two months until we vote for president in 2012 and I’ve already heard speculation about what the matchup might be in 2016. Here’s what Meyer said earlier this week when asked about Miller being a candidate for the Heisman: “Oh, I don’t think he’s played enough. I’ve been lucky to have three guys go to New York, and it’s been fun to be a part of that. I think at the appropriate time I won’t say he’s not. But I don’t believe he is now. He hasn’t been playing well enough yet.” As a Heisman Trophy voter, I’m not a big fan of trying to anoint a winner of that trophy after one or two games or even after half a season. Most of my Heisman decisions have come at least 10 games into the season. Looking back at the last 10 years of my Heisman votes, that policy has been right just about as often as it has been wrong. If I could get a do-over on those 10 votes, I would keep my No. 1 selection the same five times and I would change it five times. I still like my vote for Robert Griffin III last year. I wouldn’t change my vote for Troy Smith in 2006, my selection of Vince Young over Reggie Bush in 2005, my vote for Tim Tebow in 2007 or my 2008 Colt McCoy pick. But I would change five of them. Most notably I would go with what my eyes told me after watching him in person twice and vote for Ben Roethlisberger in 2003 instead of voting him third. Will I vote for Braxton Miller? Probably some day. But I don’t know yet if it will be this year.
