Committee OKs street project N. Market improvement would cost $1.75M BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer

Check out this week’s iN75 Eagles’ Wings Stables is gearing up for its Ride-a-Thon in October. Also, RJBallroom offers dance lessons in Miami County, and two stylists from Posh Hair Salon traveled to New York City to style models for Fashion Week.

Members of the Troy Buildings, Streets & Sidewalks Committee recommended council approve moving forward on the North Market Street improvement project.

TROY The improvement project, stretching from Staunton Road to Foss Way/Kirk Lane, is projected to cost a total of almost $1.75 million, up from $1.61 million when it was first planned, before waterline and storm-sewer costs were

factored in. About $145,000 of the total costs would be assessed to property owners for sidewalks — to pay after completion of the project or over a five-year period — which was a topic of conversation for committee members. Chairman Bobby Phillips asked how many properties would be

affected, to which City Engineer Deborah Swan said about 45, though a few properties have the same owner. After glancing over a spreadsheet showing the estimated costs, John Schweser, sitting in for Tom Kendall, commented that the expenses seem a little high for property owners. Swan said in response, “Most

Jill Lynott portrays “Suzanne” while Josh Lisec portrays “Junior” in a Troy Civic Theatre production of “Dearly Departed.”

‘Dearly Departed’ to kick off Friday BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer “Dearly Departed” director Terressa Knoch has a simple motto for audiences: “They need to be ready to laugh, because laughter is essential.” On Sept. 28-30 and Oct. 6-7 at the Barn in the Park, Troy Civic Theatre will present the farce about a somewhat dysfunctional — but completely relatable — family recovering from the loss of the father Bud Turpin, who dies suddenly at the breakfast table. What ensues is “a series of events that are both endearing and downright funny,” a press release stated.

TROY Knoch said attendees will likely be able to find a part of themselves in the Turpin clan. “It’s a typical American family that’s experiencing a loss, and to see how everyone deals with it and and comes together to support one another,” Knoch said. “The family’s a little eccentric. Some of the friends of the family at the visitation are a little colorful too, to say the least.” “Dearly Departed” is a particularly special show for Troy Civic Theatre because it’s written by ‘77

Weaver resigns 2013 festival post 2014 chair agrees to take over responsibilities BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer

Citing “personal reasons,” the 2013 Troy Strawberry Festival Chairman Jim Weaver stepped down well before much of the planning for Home Delivery: next year’s festival has begun. 335-5634 According to Strawberry Festival Classified Advertising: manager Heather Dorsten, Weaver (877) 844-8385 resigned from chairman due to personal reasons and Jon Dankworth, 2014 Troy Strawberry Festival Chairman, already has been 6 74825 22406 6 tapped to chair the 2013 Complete weather information on Page 11.

Dorsten said the festival will continue as planned with its annual kick-off set for February.

Since the start of the 2012-2013 school year, Tipp City Schools has been adjusting to changes from a failed levy and redistricting its elementary schools. The aftermath and future plans were discussed at the school’s board of education meeting on Monday night. While the levy failed to pass at the special election in August, Superintendent Dr. John Kronour said that the school will not go into fiscal watch, thanks to the applied cuts that were spelled out prior to local residents getting out to vote. Kronour is now setting his sight on the future for a long-term outlook that will balance the school’s finances in case the school doesn’t pass another levy down the road. A couple weeks ago, Kronour sat down with other board members to discuss where they were at with the failure of the levy and to begin planning for what possible strategies come next and when the school will be on the ballot again. “Right now, what we’re working on is to try and balance that budget over the entire 5-year forecast and what those cuts would have to look like for next year to be able to start down that path,” Kronour said. Once a plan is in place, one of his ultimate goals is to have an open forum to see what ideas parents and other community members may have to make sure the school is going down the right path. Board member Scott Dixon said that one of the reasons the 5-year plan is being done is “to educate the district on what this world looks like with no new money,” especially if the board decides in May

Dorsten said she was thankful for Weaver’s involvement throughout the years as head of clubs and organizations. The 2013 Troy Strawberry Festival is set for June 1-2. The Troy Strawberry Festival recently announced it will be held once again at the levee. The 2012 Troy Strawberry Festival was held downtown due to the Adams Street Bridge’s construction.

State to release portion of report card information BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Reports The wait for Ohio’s final grade for districts isn’t over despite a “skinny” version being released today. According to a release from Ohio Department of Education’s interim superintendent Michael Sawyers, officials decided earlier this month to offer a pared-down version — holding back attendance rates, graduation rates, performance index scores and the overall letter grades — instead of going ahead with a full, official release. Troy City Schools Superintendent Eric Herman said the district has had student scores and data since earlier this summer and “that’s all we need to have” in order to continue going forward. “It doesn’t hurt us in the classroom since our students already have their results,” Herman said. Yet it’s the public that doesn’t know whether its local elementary or school district is rated “Excellent” which Newton Local School was last year or even “Excellent with Distinction” like Troy City Schools was rated last year and how Miami East Local Schools has been rated at the top for four consecutive years. The release of reportcard data has been on hold as state officials debated whether it should be made public while the Auditor of State continues to investigate whether some schools manipulated their studentattendance data “The goal is to post it in the morning,” Education Department spokesman

Residents would be able to appeal their assessment to an Assessment Equalization Board, approved at the Oct. 15 council meeting. The AEB would then report to city council, which would decide whether to proceed by passing an ordinance for improvements, followed by bidding for the project. In other news, committee members recommended council authorize filing an application with the OPWC for funding construction at the intersection of North Market Street, Piqua-Troy Road and Troy-Urbana Road. The project would move the intersection north, likely aligning it with entrance to the Staunton Grange. The grant is capped at $350,000, with the project estimated at $583,990.

Work continues on CR 25-A interchange ment will be made on the exit 69 northbound ramp off I-75 as it will be widened to provide room for an additional lane. Furthermore, the traffic signal, which currently sits at the end of the ramp will be updated to allow for better vehicle detection. Another portion of the project will address traffic signals in the area, as equipment will be added to numerous other signals including those located at 25-A and East KesslerCowlesville Road, County Road 25-A and Donn Davis Way and the signals at the end of the I-75 northbound and southbound ramps. Adding equipment to the signals will enable them to be interconnected, thus allowing a coordinated timing system that will be implemented for the corridor. Finally, an Intelligent Transportation Systems camera will be installed to allow Tipp City officials to monitor traffic flow in the

area. John R. Jurgensen, a company construction based in Cincinnati that specializes in asphalt paving, was awarded the contract with a project cost of $3.01 million. The company is no stranger to the Miami Valley having completed state work on I-675 as well as airfield pavement improvements at Dayton International Airport. Despite the amount of work that will take place on each exit ramp and nearby intersections, ODOT officials said they will try not to disrupt local traffic as the project commences. “ODOT and the contractor will make every effort to not disrupt traffic during construction,” Yoh said, “It will be maintained with traffic shifts and temporary closures of the southbound ramps.” The project is expected to be completed in May 2013.

BY ANDREW WILSON Ohio Community Media The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) has begun work on an interchange project that will modify the configuration of the on and off southbound ramps from County Road 25-A to Interstate 75 and complete other work in the area as well. The project has been in the works by ODOT District 7 since 2008 and was brought to the organization’s attention by a number of safety concerns. “Tipp City had been observing a number of crashes on the loop ramp from County Road 25-A to southbound I-75,” said Justin A. Yoh, ODOT District 7 Safe Routes to School Coordinator. “The city notified ODOT of their concern at which time ODOT completed a safety study. This study recommended a redesign of the interchange to a standard diamond configuration.” In addition to the work being done on the southbound ramps, an improve-

Why dey think gonna beat them Bengals? Who Dey! Who Dey! Who dey think gonna beat them Bengals? Nobody! I have another confession to make. Up until about a week and a half ago, I had never actually done the whole cheer. I have been that loyal fan who cheers for the Bengals in good and bad, but I have never said the full cheer, nor have I ever been to a game. Until this season. When I met Kyle, I found out the biggest difference between the two of us. Had this difference been with anyone else, it probably would have been a deal breaker (just kidding) but seriously, he's a Browns fan. Ssshhh. We won't talk about the matter too much. I have come to terms with it and have been dealing with it quite well. So, a couple of months ago he asked if I would want to go to the Bengals/Browns game, even though he called it the Browns/Bengals game, with a bunch of people from Subhouse. ABSOLUTLEY, was my response. I love fall, not just for my love of nature and all the

opportunities it presents, because it means it’s football season. While I'm not a diehard football fan that lives and breathes the sport, I do enjoy it and I do enjoy friendly rivalries. On Sunday, Sept. 16, I woke up and got decked out from head to toe in orange and black for the Bengals. We all met in the morning, loaded up and headed down to Cincinnati. Man, let me tell you, I thought I was going to be a loner, having never been to an NFL game before. However, it was not the case. The leader of the pack, "Koop" as we’ll call him, called out all the "newbies" to NFL games. Let me tell you my first NFL experience couldn't have

been better. So many cool people were on that bus, but I was specifically happy to have my great friend Rachel and her husband Matt who just got home from Afghanistan the day before and the newlyweds Jordan and Maria Peterson with Kyle and me. Once we hit Cincy, we unloaded, found the best place to tailgate and went at it. We threw the pigskin, breathed in the great smells of grills going and had friendly cheer battles between the group of 100 or so people, divided into Browns fans and Bengals fans. We took pictures and met new people. It wasn't long before we looked down and realized we needed to head toward the stadium. My good buddy Maria stayed by my side, to make sure that I didn't miss my first kickoff (Thanks again Maria and Michelle.) We rushed through the gates, through the crowd and I weaseled my way to the railing to see my first kickoff. Not only did I get a kickoff, but I also got to see a flyover, which always excites me.

The game was a blast. I had Kyle by my side and we were cheering on our favorite teams with good friends. It was awesome to just be in "The Jungle" and see the people I cheer on every week in person. The best part was leading up to the game, as all the Browns fans were trash-talking a lot. Early in the game it was evident that the Bengals were going to come out on top again, and we did! I have to say, NFL games are a whole other beast. It was a blast and it was awesome, but I do have to say that I have yet to find anything that compares to a Saturday in the fall in Knoxville, Tenn. Tennessee fans are another breed; their fan base is strong and true and the stadium is louder than anything I have ever been to. I have to say, my heart for college football is still strong, but would I go to another NFL game in a heartbeat. Regardless, I will be a Volunteer and Bengal fan until the end.

If the students were wearing their seatbelts they received a “Smarties” candy for being smart about wearing their seatbelt. If the students were not wearing their seatbelts they were given a “DummDumm” sucker for making a bad decision. Results of the event proved that a majority of the drivers at Miami East High School do wear their seatbelt. More than 60 drivers and passengers were presented candy with 13 percent of drivers were not wearing their seatbelt. Similar results as were collected last year when 9.1 percent of drivers were not wearing their seatbelt. The first seatbelt was in a Volvo vehicle in 1849. On Feb. 15, 1885, the seatbelt patent was given to Edward J. Claghorn. By the 1930s, doctors were requesting the vehicles be equipped with the restraining device. By the 1950s, they were seen regularly in automobiles. And legislation in 1966-1968 made them mandatory for all cars. The FFA’s Leadership

This quarter the requests before them exceeded $43,000, the most ever considered by this group at one sitting. Seven organizations eventually were chosen to receive 17 awards totaling $19,668.76. For more information about the foundations and the funds, that make these grant awards possible, visit the website at • Bethel Hope, $388.55, assists residents of Bethel Township and the surrounding areas in meeting basic needs during times of critical personal downturns. • Bethel Local Schools, $1,000, and Tipp City Exempted Village Schools, $3,100, packs up the fifth graders and helps to send them on an adventure at Camp Kern in Oregonia, Ohio. The grownups think the students are being sent to learn about nature. The students think they are being sent to have fun. The foundations think that both the grownups and the students are right. • Bethel Local Schools, $3,000, leverages donations from others with this matching grant for Phase 3 of the auditorium renovation, which updates stage curtains and seating. Built in 1918, Bethel’s auditorium hosts community meetings, theatrical productions and concerts. • Bethel Local Schools, $200, jump-starts the the seventh through 12th grade library’s Read-Alike book project, a program that provides book topics similar to ones being assigned in the classroom. • Bethel Local Schools, $260, purchases leveled books for the elementary library that build upon a series already collected. • Tipp City Church of the Nazarene, $2,500, launches a new initiative called “The Backpack Program.” A collaboration between the church and Tipp City Schools, the program identifies children who exhibit ongoing behavioral, physical or academic symptoms of chronic hunger and provided food to them to take home after school on Friday to sustain them through the weekend. There are anticipated to be at least 40 children living among us in Tipp City who go hungry each weekend for various reasons. Chronic hunger debilitates a child’s school performance and physical growth. Hats off to the church for identifying this need and finding a short-term solution for these children. • Tipp City Exempted Village Schools, $1,472.08, pays expenses related to continuing the Nonviolent Crisis Intervention training for staff. • Tipp City Exempted Village Schools, $500, purchases a one-year subscription to “Discovery Portal,” a search engine that aggre-

ev up that Land Rover and put on your best safari hat, because next we’re off to the large and beautiful continent of Africa, a land known for its varied wildlife and beautiful forests. Africa is also a rich tapestry of peoples, cultures, religions, and languages. An estimated 800 to 1,700 languages are spoken on the continent. Swahili, a language of East Africa, is spoken by the largest number of people. Besides the native African languages, English, French, Portuguese, German, Italian, and Arabic are also commonly spoken. In some places the common language is what’s called a “lingua franca,” or a mixture of several languages. Africa is home to the world’s largest desert, the

Sahara, which covers 3.5 million square miles and grows a little every year. It is also the home of the world’s longest river, the Nile. In Africa’s rain forests live gorillas, chimpanzees, monkeys, wild pigs, and large red antelopes called bongos. Crocodiles, hippopotamuses, lizards, snakes, and birds, such as flamingos, pelicans, herons, storks, and kingfishers, live in the continent’s tropical waters. On the grasslands roam herds of elephant, rhinoceros, wildebeest, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, and antelope, as well as the lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, and jackals that eat them. Although Europeans colonized the coasts of Africa as early as the 15th and 16th centuries, the interior

of the continent was not explored by outsiders until the 19th century. What lay in the interior of Africa was a mystery to the Europeans, so they called Africa “the Dark Continent.” But really it was nothing of the kind. The African people had thriving cultures based on tribal, mostly nomadic, lifestyles. By the 20th century, though, Africa was almost entirely colonized by Europeans, and it wasn’t until after World War II that most of the African states regained their independence. Tribal differences, language differences, unstable governments, and a shortage of land good for growing food have combined to cause many, many problems for the people of Africa.


Students should find stories that describe community problems and discuss how these problems affect their own lives. Is there anything we can do to help with these problems?

Tell sister her wedding is creating a financial burden for your mom

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

Dear Annie: My parents divorced years ago. Dad waited patiently while Mom chose between him and another man. In the end, Mom chose the other guy, but it didn't work out. Neither have any of her other relationships. Meanwhile, my dad married a lovely, classy and extremely wealthy woman. They have found true happiness, while my mom has become bitter and jealous. I love both of my parents, but it's difficult to be around my mother when she constantly whines and complains about Dad, saying he has money and she doesn't. My grandmother had to take over most of Mom's financial responsibilities, including helping to pay for our expenses growing up. Here's the problem. My sister is getting married. She is paying for part of the wedding, but asked our parents to help with the rest. Dad gave her a check for his share. Mom, on the other hand, is unable to pay, and Grandma says she is not covering the cost. This was a surprise because Grandma has always said "yes" in the past. Mom won't tell my sister because she doesn't want to upset her. She doesn't want Dad to know she can't afford it, which is ridiculous because he's well aware that she is financially strapped. He probably assumes Grandma will pay. Mom has reached a new level of complaining. She cries and is frequently sick. She's angry with Grandma. She worries that Dad's wife will look prettier at the wedding and that her future son-inlaw will like my stepmother better. She has asked to borrow money from me and is thinking of taking out a loan. I want to help, but I think part of this is her own fault. She needs to grow up and live within her means instead of trying to keep up with Dad and his wife. But telling her that would crush her. What can I do? — Worried Dear Worried: There's only so much reassurance you can give Mom if she cannot overcome her insecurities. That might require professional help. But there is no reason to protect your sister from the difficulties she has caused. Tell her the wedding is a financial burden that Mom cannot manage, and ask her to cut back on her expenses or find another way to pay for the extra cost. Dear Annie: My husband enjoyed sex when we had it, but I initiated every session. After five years, I started to feel as if I was begging for it and asked him to take the lead some of the time. He didn't. For three more years, I told him it would thrill me to be approached by him, treated to dinner or have a little gift placed on my pillow — the kind of things I did for him. I finally convinced him to go for counseling, but my husband wouldn't do any of the things the counselor suggested. In desperation, I told him that if he wanted sex, he would have to initiate it. That was seven years ago, and we haven't been intimate since. I can't divorce him because of my own physical problems. He says he loves me, but he's not willing to do anything for me. Any suggestions? — Another Sad Wife Dear Sad: Other than making sure your husband has a thorough checkup, you might consider counseling for yourself. While you cannot force your husband to change, you can work on your own happiness. Our condolences. Dear Annie: May I weigh in on whether or not to have flowers at a funeral? When my parents died, the flowers were deeply appreciated. They brightened the rooms where we had visitation and later at the church. If someone wants to give to a charity, fine, but the flowers at my parents' funerals brought much more comfort to us than any of the donations, although the latter were surely well intended. — C.B.

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


Maybe olives aren’t really finger food after all Dear Heloise: I read your reply to a question regarding the shelf life of olives. We use olives a lot and keep them in their original brine in the refrigerator. The past few months, when we’ve opened a jar that some olives have been used out of, there has been mold on the top, they’ve tasted funny, and we’ve ended up throwing them out. What do you suggest? — I.H., via email Hmmm. Olive manufacturers say olives last for up to 12 months in the jar in the refrigerator. But NEVER use your fingers to get the olives out of the jar! You may be adding bacteria or germs.

Hints from Heloise Columnist If white film or mold develops, simply remove it by tipping over the jar and pouring out the film. You can add a teaspoon or so of vinegar to the jar to keep this film from forming. The olives still should be safe to eat. However, if they taste funny, then you should throw them out! — Heloise

COCONUT COATING Dear Heloise: I read your column daily in the Tyler (Texas) Morning Telegraph and rely on it for so many things. How do you get coconut on the sides of a frosted coconut cake? If I put it on with my hand, it just gets all over my fingers and comes off the cake. — Jo in Texas Well, Jo, you could buy disposable gloves made for food preparation, or just take a plastic sandwich bag and put it over your hand before placing the coconut on the cake. This keeps your hand from sticking to the coconut while allowing you to press the coconut into the frost-

ing. — Heloise EGG HINTS Dear Heloise: Here are two hints about eggs: When I am buying eggs, I always open the carton and give each egg a twist to make sure it isn’t broken or cracked. Once home, if you find an egg stuck to the carton, try this hint: Run a little cool water into the carton, after removing the other eggs, and let it sit for a few minutes. The water will loosen the egg enough that you can remove it. I have found that some stuck eggs weren’t even broken or cracked, they just needed help getting out of the carton. — Georgia D. in North Carolina

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You are unusually forward and assertive in all your dealings with others today, especially with siblings, neighbors and daily contacts. This could work well for you; then again, it might not! CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You’re very firm about going after what you want in terms of earning money today. Similarly, you’ll be very specific about what you want if you are purchasing something. Oh yeah! LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You feel passionate today. You want something to happen. You want life to rattle your cage, especially with romantic adventure. Well, good luck — something might thrill you. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You feel driven about certain things today; however, you’re not going to show others or tip your hand. (But you certainly do have a hidden agenda.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Group activities, especially sports and physical activities appeal highly to you today. You’ll enjoy an easy camaraderie with others, even though you want to win! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might be attracted to your boss or someone older or richer today. (This could be a serious crush.) Just don’t do anything you will regret later. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You’re excited about travel possibilities. (What’s new?) Your enthusiasm will make you push hard to gain the advantage in publishing, the media and anything that has to do with higher education. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You definitely will fight for your rights and defend your best interests when it comes to discussions about inheritances or how to divide anything or deal with shared property. You mean business! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Relations with partners and close friends are flirtatious and possibly a tad tense. You have strong emotions today, but they could go either way. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Because you’re so excited about something at work, you will move mountains to make sure it happens. Quite likely, you’re trying to improve the appearance of something. YOU BORN TODAY You’re versatile and multitalented. Although you are warm and friendly, in a deeper way, you are reserved and distant. (You’re very sensitive.) You value the support of good friends. Your life is often full of highs and lows with respect to your career. In the year ahead, a major change could take place, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2003. Birthdate of: Gwyneth Paltrow, actress; Avril Lavigne, singer; Randy Bachman, musician. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Wednesday, Sept. 26, the 270th day of 2012. There are 96 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 26, 1789, Thomas Jefferson was confirmed by the Senate to be the first United States secretary of state; John Jay, the first chief justice; Edmund Randolph, the first attorney general. On this date: • In 1777, British troops occupied Philadelphia during the American Revolution. • In 1892, John Philip Sousa and his newly formed band performed publicly for the first time, at

the Stillman Music Hall in Plainfield, N.J. • In 1955, following word that President Dwight D. Eisenhower had suffered a heart attack, the New York Stock Exchange saw its worst price decline since 1929. • In 1962, Maury Wills of the Los Angeles Dodgers stole his 100th base during a 13-1 victory over the Houston Colt .45s. “The Beverly Hillbillies” premiered on CBS. • One year ago: Ending weeks of political brinkmanship, Congress advanced legislation to avoid a partial government shutdown. President

Barack Obama appeared at a town hall meeting in Mountain View, Calif., hosted by the social networking company LinkedIn; the president plugged his jobs agenda in fielding questions on the employment picture, education, Medicare and Social Security. • Today’s Birthdays: Actor Philip Bosco is 82. South African nationalist Winnie MadikizelaMandela is 76. Singer Bryan Ferry is 67. Singer Olivia Newton-John is 64. Actress Linda Hamilton is 56. TV personality Jillian Barberie is 46. Actor Jim Caviezel is 44. Tennis player Serena Williams is 31.

Obama summons world leaders to reject extremism

dent’s Republican rival, Mitt Romney, has tried to cast him as a weak leader on the world stage, too quick to apologize for American values. Romney, speaking at a Clinton Global Initiative forum just miles from the U.N., avoided direct criticism of Obama in deference to the apolitical settings of the day, but he said he hoped to return a year later “as president, having made substantial progress” on democratic reforms. Obama, likewise, avoid-

ed direct politicking in his speech but offered a pointed contrast to his GOP opponent’s caught-on-tape comment that there is little hope for peace between Israelis and Palestinians. “Among Israelis and Palestinians,” Obama said, “the future must not belong to those who turn their backs on a prospect of peace.” U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s opening state-of-the-world speech to the General Assembly’s presidents, prime minis-

ters and monarchs sketched the current time as one when “too often, divisions are exploited for short-term political gain” and “too many people are ready to take small flames of indifference and turn them into a bonfire.” The leaders are assembled here as anger still churns over a made-inAmerica video that mocked the Prophet Muhammad. The video helped touch off protests throughout the Muslim world that have left at least 40 people dead,

including the U.S. ambassador to Libya. Obama, a onetime professor of constitutional law, delivered what amounted to a lecture on what he presented as the bedrock importance of free speech, even if it comes at a price.

for Obama’s speech a world riven by deadly protests against an anti-Islamic video, by war in Syria, by rising tension over a nuclear Iran and more marked the dramatic shifts that have occurred in the year since the General Assembly’s last ministerial meeting, when democratic uprisings in the Arab world created a sense of excitement and optimism. Obama had tough words for Iran and condemned anew the violence in Syria as Bashar al-Assad tries to retain power. Six weeks before the U.S. presidential election, an unmistakable campaign element framed Obama’s speech as well: The presi-

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Confronting global tumult and Muslim anger, President Barack Obama exhorted world leaders Tuesday to stand fast against violence and extremism, arguing that protecting religious rights and free speech must be a universal responsibility and not just an American obligation. “The impulse towards intolerance and violence may initially be focused on the West, but over time it cannot be contained,” Obama warned the U.N. General Assembly in an urgent call to action underscored by the high stakes for all nations. The gloomy backdrop

NEW PARIS — Maybe Miami East was looking ahead early Tuesday night. Whatever the case, the Vikings got their focus back before the match’s end. Miami East (16-0, 8-0 Cross County Conference) — the No. 1 team in the state in Division III — gave up double digits in points in the first two games at National Trail Tuesday night but closed out the match resounding-

ly in Game 3, winning 25-11, 2510, 25-4. “We were a little sluggish in the first two sets,” Miami East coach John Cash said. “We had some hitting errors. We weren’t putting balls away the way we usually do. “In the third set, we came out aggressive and played the way we’re capable of.” Sam Cash had seven kills, an ace, a dig, a block and seven

assists, Angie Mack had seven kills, a block and a dig, Trina Current had six kills, Abby Cash had four kills, an ace, two digs and 22 assists, Leah Dunivan had four kills, six aces, three blocks and four digs, Ashley Current had four kills and four blocks, Allison Morrett had six digs and Allie Millhouse had five digs.

Rookies to face tough road test

NFL upholds disputed Seattle win over Packers

Browns play Ravens Thursday BEREA (AP) — Once he’s handed the ball on Thursday night, Trent Richardson knows what’s next. Hall of Fame-level contact. “Ray Lewis is going to come at me,” the Browns rookie running back said, “and I’m going to come right back at him. That’s football.” Richardson, quarterback Brandon Weeden and Cleveland’s other rookies are about to face the toughest test of their budding careers when the winless Browns visit Baltimore, one of the league’s most hostile stadiums where the Ravens have won 12 straight, 20 of 21 and where visitors are not welcomed. Play at your own risk. “You have to be on your ‘A’ game and be ready to rock and roll,” Weeden said Wednesday. Or, get rocked and rolled on national TV. It’s tough to play on the road in a normal week, but the Browns have only had two days to prepare for the Ravens (2-1), who are coming off a last-second win over New England on Sunday night. Baltimore has won eight straight over Cleveland under coach John Harbaugh and some of the Ravens have posted some of their best stats at the expense of the Browns. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has never lost to Cleveland, going 8-0 the past four seasons. Safety Ed Reed has more interceptions (10), return yards (356) and touchdowns on picks (three) versus the Browns than any

other opponent, and running back Ray Rice has averaged 118.5 yards per game against Cleveland. And when they’re at home, the Ravens are a predatory bird. “It’s one of the steeper tests in the NFL when you talk about playing in Baltimore,” Browns Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas said. “And it’s a night game and on national TV, so the crowd is going to be that much louder and more into it. It’s going to be difficult to hear in the huddle and on the line. Throw in a great defense and the Hall of Fame guys that they have and it adds up to a tough task.” There’s no doubt that the odds are stacked high against the Browns, who are 13-point underdogs. But Richardson believes they can hold their own against an AFC North power. “It’s another ballgame for us,” he said. “People say that we don’t have a chance, but I know we’ve got a chance. If everybody straps up their jersey, step up their pads, we’ve still got a chance against them. I don’t care what they say. Lot of folks sleep on us. When people fall asleep on us, that’s when we come with our A-game.” Cleveland is coming off a C-minus performance last week against Buffalo. After falling behind 14-0, the Browns rallied but came up short and lost their ninth straight game dating to last season. As the final seconds ticked off, thousands of Bills fans celebrated like they were back home in Orchard


Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson (33) runs the ball in an NFL football game against the Buffalo Bills Sunday in Cleveland. Park. Fortunately for the Browns, the short week has allowed them to move on quickly from a stinging defeat. “Physically, guys are a little sore,” Weeden said. “Mentally, it’s nice because you want to play as fast as you can after a loss. If you win, you’d rather have some time off. If you lose that game it’s nice to get out and play as soon as possible. Guys are eager to get back out and compete again.” Weeden threw for 237 yards against the Bills, but he had two interceptions in the fourth quarter as he tried to rally the Browns. During his postgame news conference, Weeden said he played a “solid” game, but as he left the podium, the 28year-old felt realized what he said came across poorly and made him look selfish. Like one of his errant throws, he made a comment

he’d like to have back. “I thought about it before I even walked out the room,” he said. “First and foremost, the most important thing is winning the game. I didn’t do enough to win the game, so I didn’t play well enough. I shouldn’t have said I played well. I didn’t play well. I felt comfortable. I felt good. I just didn’t do enough to win the game. If we won by one, I would have said I played all right. I should have started with, ‘No, we didn’t win the game, so it doesn’t matter.’” Richardson, too, wishes he had played better. After rushing for 109 yards the previous week at Cincinnati, he managed just 27 on 12 carries against the Bills, who made it a priority to stop him. He’s sure to get the same treatment from the Ravens and their cast of hard hitters led by Lewis and Reed.

clusive, upholding the touchdown and giving Seattle the victory. Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, normally a soft-spoken player who didn’t say much after the loss, lashed out on his radio show Tuesday.. “First of all, I’ve got to do something that the NFL is not going to do: I have to apologize to the fans,” he said on ESPN 540-AM in Milwaukee. Even President Barack Obama got in on the conversation Tuesday, tweeting: “NFL fans on both sides of the aisle hope the refs’ lockout is settled soon.” The controversy began on the final play when Russell Wilson heaved a 24-yard pass into a scrum in the end zone with Seattle trailing 12-7. Tate shoved away a defender with both hands, and he and Jennings got their hands on the ball. “It was pinned to my chest the whole time,” Jennings said. Instead, the officials ruled on the field that the two had simultaneous possession, which counts as a reception. “The NFL Officiating Department reviewed the video today and supports the decision not to overturn the on-field ruling following the instant replay review,” the league said in a statement. Saying there was no indisputable evidence, though, is not the same as confirming the initial call was correct. The Packers, one of sports’ most storied franchises and Super Bowl champs two years ago, fell to 1-2. The Seahawks are 2-1.

NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL put its stamp of approval on the stillsmoldering outcome of the Green Bay-Seattle game: Wrong call. Right review. Wrong team still wins. Seahawks 14, Packers 12. With frustration mounting among coaches, players and fans, the worst fear finally materialized: a mistake by a replacement official would decide the outcome of a game. It came while the NFL and its regular officials, locked out since June, were in resumed talks in an attempt to resolve the impasse. That was still a day late for the Packers. The fiasco, which unfolded on the prominent stage of “Monday Night Football,” was deconstructed by the league Tuesday in a way that surely rendered little comfort for Cheeseheads. The NFL said Seattle’s last-second touchdown pass should not have counted because Seahawks receiver Golden Tate should have been called for offensive pass interference, ending the game with Green Bay winning. Instead, officials ruled it a touchdown, and penalties either way are not reviewable. That left it to whether Tate and Green Bay safety M.D. Jennings both had possession of the ball. The officials said they did, but the Packers insisted Jennings had clear possession for a game-ending interception. The NFL agreed that the replay was incon-

Trojans ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 knocked off the Trojans in the sectional tournament. The Trojans (13-4, 5-0 GWOC North) hadn’t forgotten. “The girls were fired up,” Troy coach Michelle Owen said. “They beat us here last year, but I felt like we could beat them so I went after them in the tournament. They beat us at our own place — and they chose our benches on purpose for that match, too. “The seniors remember what it felt like to get beat by them. And they weren’t

going to let that happen again.” Early on, though, Troy’s adrenaline led to some big blasts but also some jittery play — including four service errors — as Piqua jumped out to a 7-3 lead in the first game. Mackenzie Rice served six straight points to put Troy up 10-7, but neither team could build more than a threepoint lead the rest of the game. A kill by Piqua senior Jasmine Davis (four kills, three aces) tied the game at 23-23 and forced a Troy

timeout. And Troy knew exactly where it wanted to go with the ball after the stoppage. “They couldn’t stop Jen (Monnier),” Owen said. “She was unstoppable tonight. If we needed a point, we set her. They had no answer for her.” Monnier blasted down one of her nine kills on the night to make it 24-23 and force a Piqua timeout, but a clutch dig by Cassie Rice led directly to a kill by Lauren Freed to put an end to the first game. Most of Cassie Rice’s 12

digs, in fact, led directly to Troy kills. No matter how far she had to dive to keep the ball off the ground, she put it right where setter Mackenzie Rice — who dished out 44 assists in addition to tallying two kills and an ace — could go anywhere she wanted with the ball. “She played awesome,” Owen said of Cassie Rice. “When we dug, we dug the ball in system and got the ball to our hitters. Cassie’s digs were all high quality, middle-of-the-court balls where we could go to all

three of our options.” And all of Troy’s options were on top of their game, too. Selby led all hitters with 15 kills and two aces, Emily Moser added 10 kills and a block, Monnier had nine kills and a block, freshman Freed had seven kills, a block and an ace and Leah Selby added two aces. “Once we settled down, we all played well,” Owen said. “One thing we really worked on was mixing up where we hit. We felt like if we could keep (Piqua sen-

ior libero) Taylor Bachman guessing, we could win. We hit down the line, cross court and tipped — we kept them guessing.” Troy wasn’t challenged after the first game, and — fittingly enough — Cassie Rice put down the kill on the final point of the night. Shelby Vogler led Piqua with 11 kills and an ace. The Trojans return home Thursday for a GWOC crossover match with a tough Beavercreek squad before beginning play in the GWOC tournament next week.

Bees advance to district


Milwaukee Brewers’ Rickie Weeks is picked off at first base as he dives back late while Cincinnati Reds’ Joey Votto, right, waits for the throw from pitcher Johnny Cueto in the fist inning in Cincinnati.

Reds play spoiler Cincy’s 4-2 win hurts Brewers playoff chances CINCINNATI (AP) — Johnny Cueto pitched seven solid innings, and the Cincinnati Reds stayed in the chase for the NL’s top record by beating the Milwaukee Brewers 42 on Tuesday night after learning they’ll be without their manager for the rest of the week. The Brewers dropped back-to-back games for the first time in more than a month, and it came at a bad time. They started the day 3 games behind St. Louis for the final NL wild card spot. The 2011 NL Central champions had played their way back into contention for the postseason by winning 25 of 32. They got no break from the Reds, who clinched the division title on Saturday night and rested four of their regulars the following day. Interim manager Chris Speier went back to his usual lineup on Tuesday. Manager Dusty Baker met his players before the

game and revealed he suffered a mini-stroke in addition to being treated for an irregular heartbeat at a Chicago hospital last week. Speier will manage the series against Milwaukee and three games in Pittsburgh during the weekend, giving the 63-year-old Baker time to rest. Doctors expect Baker to make a full recovery. He could resume managing the final series in St. Louis next week. The Brewers couldn’t do much against Cueto (19-9), who is rounding back into form as the playoffs approach. Cueto got his 17th win in August, then dropped three straight subpar starts. He gave up 14 runs in only 15 1-3 innings during those three games, raising questions about whether the right-hander was tiring out. He was back in form last Thursday, pitching six shutout innings in

Chicago for his 18th win. On Tuesday, the righthander didn’t allow a runner to second base until Carlos Gomez doubled with two outs in the fifth inning. Jean Segura singled to score Gomez, but was thrown out trying to advance to third on the throw to the plate. Cueto gave up two runs and five hits, including Aramis Ramirez’s solo homer. Aroldis Chapman pitched a perfect ninth for his 36th save in 41 chances. It was his first time in the closer role since Sept. 10, when he developed a tired shoulder. The Reds have 93 wins for only the second time since 1975-76, when the Big Red Machine put together back-to-back World Series titles. The 1999 team won 96 games but failed to make the postseason after losing a one-game playoff to the Mets. Mike Fiers (9-9) gave

up nine hits and four runs in 4 1-3 innings. The Reds put together four straights hits to open the second, loading the bases in three singles. Dioner Navarro singled for a 2-0 lead. Zack Cozart opened the fifth with a triple that caromed off the wall in center, and Joey Votto and Jay Bruce doubled for a 41 lead. NOTES: Cueto picked Rickie Weeks off first base in the first inning, his team-high ninth pickoff of the season. … After two more games in Cincinnati, the Brewers finish the season with six home games three each against Houston and San Diego. … The Brewers hadn’t dropped back-to-back games since Aug. 18-19, when they lost two against Philadelphia. … Ramirez’s homer was his 338th as a third baseman, moving ahead of Ron Santo for sixth on the alltime list.

Perez, Indians hold off White Sox CHICAGO (AP) — Chris Perez held on in a shaky ninth to give the Cleveland Indians a satisfying win over the AL Central-leading White Sox. He gave up a homer to Paul Konerko to open the ninth inning, but Gordon Beckham hit into a gameending forceout with the potential tying run on second base, giving Cleveland a 4-3 win on Tuesday. “We had a rough time and we’re just thinking about winning games,” manager Manny Acta said. “The last thing in our mind is to hurt somebody or knock somebody off. It’s just nice to win after what we’ve gone through the last two months.” Chicago’s loss gave Detroit an opening to tie for the division lead later Tuesday night against Kansas City. Russ Canzler had three hits and homered for the second straight game and Cory Kluber (2-4) shut down the White Sox for seven innings.

Down 4-0, Chicago closed when A.J. Pierzynski and Dayan Viciedo hit consecutive fifth-inning home runs off Kluber and then pulled within a run when Paul Konerko homered off Chris Perez leading off the ninth. In the rocky ninth, Perez walked a pair of batters with two outs, and Beckham grounded to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, who threw to second baseman Jason Kipnis for the force. Perez earned his career-high 37th save in 41 chances. Chicago (82-72) has held sole possession of the division lead since Sept. 3. Kluber gave up four hits in a career-high seven innings, retiring nine of his last 10 batters. Vinnie Pestano and Perez completed the six-hitter. Kluber ran into trouble in the fifth inning. Pierzynski extended his career-high with a solo homer leading off the fifth, his 27th of the year. Dayan Viciedo followed with his

22nd homer to cut Cleveland’s lead to 4-2. “I made a couple bad pitches and they took advantage of them,” Kluber said. “For the most part, I hadn’t left too many balls over the middle. That’s what I kept telling myself, ‘Keep executing your pitches.’ “ Beckham reached on a one-out walk after the home runs, but Kluber struck out Alejandro De Aza and Kevin Youkilis to retire the side. “He grew a little as a pitcher today,” Acta said. “That was a well-pitched ballgame, a crucial situation for those guys. It’s a meaningful game and after starting a little shaky with his command in the first inning, he was really good. “He had a good slider and his pitch count was unbelievable, very efficient. He gave up those two homers. He just settled down and continued to pound the strike zone and gave us seven solid innings of baseball.”

Pestano redeemed himself for blowing a two-run lead in Monday’s 5-4 loss with a scoreless eighth inning. He got De Aza to ground into his first double play of the season before he struck out Adam Dunn to end the inning. Dunn stunned the Indians with a late three-run homer off Pestano on Monday. On Tuesday, the Indians got payback albeit only as a spoiler. “I could care less,” Perez said. “I’d rather play for something.” Francisco Liriano (6-12) allowed all four runs and seven hits in 3 2-3 innings. Canzler hit a solo homer to put Cleveland ahead in the second. He doubled between a pair of walks as the Indians loaded the bases with one out in the fourth, and Thomas Neal barely beat out a potential double-play grounder as Carlos Santana scored. Ezequiel Carrera and ShinSoo Choo followed with consecutive RBI singles that chased Liriano.

Katrina Sutherly took a corner kick for the Vikings, Jessica Barlage was first to the ball and passed it back to Emily Holicki, who scored. “Defensively, we were great tonight,” Miami East coach Lil Carson said. “We didn’t just hold them scoreless, we really limited their opportunities.” Miami East improves to 10-1 on the season and will host Newton on Thursday.
