Ohio Attorney General’s Office and allows law enforcement to obtain information regarding criminals and crime related matters. OHLEG was introduced in 2003 and provides personal details on individuals. OHLEG provides information such as the name, address, Social Security number, physical description, age, a photo, driver’s license information, criminal record, a list of all vehicles registered to the individual in his or her lifetime, prison records, FBI numbers, sex offender status and other information. Information can be checked

The world of reading is getting a new set of wheels and soon the Troy-Miami County Library’s new Bookmobile will be headed to a neighborhood near you. The Troy Foundation recently awarded Troy-Miami County Public Library $50,000 to supplement funds saved by the library over the past decades to fund a new bookmobile. Because the library will be purchasing a “demo” bookmobile, the $150,000 price tag is significantly less than it could be. The base price of a new vehicle is $205,350. This vehicle will replace the current vehicle purchased in 1994. Both vehicles are from Farber Specialty Vehicles of Columbus and both are Extremely Low Floor (ELF) models, meaning they are lower to the ground and have a wide entrance door, making the vehicle accessible to those in wheelchairs. The new bookmobile will be 30 feet 6 inches long with a Ford F550 cab and controls. It is capable of carrying about 2,700 items. This vehicle was attractive to library officials because — with less than 1,000 miles — it is virtually new but significantly cheaper than a new vehicle. Since January 2010, the library has spent more than $16,000 to repair the 1994 bookmobile. “We are thrilled to be able to purchase a new bookmobile and grateful to the Troy Foundation for providing the additional funding needed,” said Rachelle Miller, library director. “We also acknowledge the vision of past board members and administrators for saving money toward a new vehicle over the past decades. The bookmobile has been a staple in Troy and the surrounding area since 1939.” This will be the library’s sixth bookmobile. The bookmobile’s target population includes underserved county residents: the frail elderly, multiple handicapped children, youth and adults; institutionalized residents; preschool children; and patrons living in neighborhoods and crossroads in remote areas of the county. Bookmobile stops include Troy Christian School, Bethel Schools, Miami East Schools, senior care facilities, and

Shelby Co. sheriff indicted again BY KATHY LEESE Ohio Community Media Shelby County Sheriff Dean Kimpel was indicted by a Shelby County grand jury Thursday on five charges relating to the alleged unauthorized use of a program designed to check the background of citizens in the course of official investigations. Kimpel was indicted on five felony counts of unauthorized use of the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway (OHLEG) after the grand jury heard evidence in the case, said Miami County Prosecutor Gary Nasal, who is serving as a special

SIDNEY prosecutor. This makes the second time a grand jury has returned indictments against Kimpel in the past nine days. Kimpel, 57, of the Botkins area, was charged with misuse of OHLEG after he allegedly looked up background on a number of individuals for personal reasons not related to his duties as sheriff. Unauthorized use of OHLEG is a fifth-degree felony punishable by up to 12 months in jail on each charge. OHLEG is a secure webbased tool administered by the

Organizers of the blood drive, like Mark Pompilio, a CBC spokesperson, said the challenge is not just about community pride, but also saving lives. This marks the 14th year for the blood drive and US Bank has served as both host and sponsor during that time. Once the results of the blood drive are released, the bank will make a $1,000 donation for educational materials and equipment to the winning school. “US Bank is proud to assist these two awesome communities in this year’s competition,” said Pete Bardonaro, a US Bank district manager. “The great school and community spirit within these two cities fuels this outstanding event annually. There are only winners that stem from this competition, especially the many individuals whose well-being

will be impacted from this generous gift.” And, everyone who registers will receive a CBC “This is my Halloween costume — I’m a blood donor” T-shirt. The blood drive isn’t the only footballfueled event this week as area Goodwill stores in both communities will be battling against each other for donations for the non-profit. The Goodwill Stores Drive to Victory competition is a friendly competition held each week between two local high schools that battle off the field in a donation drive benefiting Goodwill Easter Seals of Miami Valley. In Week 6 of the Victory Drive, Goodwill trailers will be at Piqua and Troy high schools to accept donations between Oct. 3-7. Donation trailers will be at each high school and at noon on Oct. 7, each one will be weighed. The school that has the most donations will be declared the winner. Fans are encouraged to donate clothing, household goods, computers and cars to help their school win.

Police: 3 soldiers admitted to Okla. home invasion LAWTON, Okla. (AP) — Three soldiers from an Oklahoma Army post admitted under police questioning that they carried out a home invasion in which four people were shot and wounded, a detective said. The three Fort Sill soldiers — a fourth is charged with being their getaway driver — told investigators that they were at the home of a friend, Heather Smith, and that they told her they were going to rob her next-door neighbor’s, Lawton police Det. Brenna Alvarez said in a sworn affidavit filed Tuesday in Comanche County District Court. Pfcs. Kevon McLaren, 22, Richard Daly, 24, and Claude Byrd II, 27, each face conspiracy, robbery and kidnapping charges, and McLaren, who witnesses said fired the shots, faces additional charges of shooting

with the intent to kill and burglary. A fourth soldier, Pfc. Jared Berman, 22, is accused of helping them flee and is charged with being an accessory. All four soldiers were being held in the Comanche County Jail — McLaren on $2 million bond, Daly and Byrd on $1 million each, and Berman on $45,000 bond. Online court records indicated that each of the soldiers pleaded not guilty to the charges on Tuesday before Special Judge Joe B. Reeves. Records indicate that none of the soldiers had attorneys. Smith, 20, was arrested Wednesday and is charged with lying to police and being an accessory after the fact. She pleaded not guilty Thursday during a hearing before Reeves, who set bond at $75,000, according to court records.

The Obama administration blamed the Syrian government for the attack in Damascus, saying it was part of an ongoing, orchestrated campaign to intimidate American diplomats in the country.

Park district opens reserve Newest park on Peterson Road For the Troy Daily News The Miami County Park District has officially opened its newest park, Farrington Reserve located at 1594 W. Peterson Road. The 27-acre park sits along the Great Miami River between Troy and Piqua and is easily accessed from both Interstate 75 and County Road 25-A. The park is a passive natural site beside the water’s edge with 2,500 feet of Great Miami River access. It offers excellent opportunities to boat, exercise and view wildlife along the river. It also provides visitors with a parking area and access to the Great Miami River Recreational Trail for biking and hiking. Eventually

TROY the park will provide an important link that connects the Troy and Piqua sections of the bikeway. At this time there is limited access to much of the park. “We thought the Farrington property would be a great addition to the park district because of its proximity to the Great Miami River,” Jerry Eldred, executive director for the Miami County Park District said. “It’s important to conserve land within the riparian corridor to protect water quality and wildlife habitat.” Wooded sections along rivers provide critical habitat for wildlife travel, food sources and migrating birds.

Farrington Reserve was acquired in 2009 with the assistance of a Clean Ohio Fund grant administered by the Ohio Public Works Commission. Clean Ohio funds were made available by the voters of the state of Ohio when they approved a bond issue that was set up to assist in the purchase of green space for the purpose of conservation and for the development of bike trails. Since the original passage of the first bond issue and continuation of the program through a second, the Miami County Park District has received numerous grants to provide the residents of Miami County with public parks and multiple sections of the Great Miami River Recreational Trail.

the choice to support or not support the unions. It is time to evaluate teachers on their merit, not their presence. I want to keep my job and if paying a little more in health insurance and in retirement will keep me employed, I am willing to make that sacrifice.

I will vote YES on State Issue 2, because I believe it will improve our educational system. I encourage my outstanding educator friends, and my fellow taxpayers, to do the same on Nov. 8.


“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 ROUNDUP Chicago Sun-Times on No Child Left Behind: In 2001, President George W. Bush’s signature reform effort, the No Child Left Behind Act, became law with broad bipartisan support, its centerpiece a bold pledge to hold all students to high standards. The law, which President Barack Obama said he will dramatically alter in the coming months, requires annual student testing and sets a goal of bringing all American children, regardless of background or disability, to grade level in reading and math by 2014. An audacious and admirable goal, to be sure, one that focused attention on every student like never before. Under the law, schools are judged a success only if every group of students in the school, including poor students, racial groups and special-education students, meet testing targets that grow more difficult each year. That microscopic view has done wonders to focus America on its neediest students. But that laudable goal also has proved counterproductive and unworkable, leaving Obama and U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan little choice but to rework it. Obama said he will offer waivers to states that want to opt out of key provisions of the No Child Act, including the mandate that all students reach proficiency by 2014. The waivers are in place of a scheduled 2007 update to the law that Congress has failed to produce. The waivers are reserved for states that will use rigorous “college and career standards” to set new “ambitious but achievable” testing goals, states willing to turn around their weakest schools and states willing to set guidelines for teacher and principal evaluations. This is not a retreat. We consider this No Child Left Behind, Part 2. The No Child law set the nation on the right course. But now we’re ready for the next step: A law that does more than identify the problem, a law that does a better job of moving education in America forward. The San Diego Union-Tribune on the IDEA Act: Of all the sad aspects of the stalemate over federal immigration policy, perhaps the worst is America’s failure to take advantage of the fact that so many talented entrepreneurs want to bring their invaluable skill sets to the U.S., which would immensely help our economy and create jobs — especially in the high-paying technology sector. The powerful boost that skilled immigrants provide the U.S. economy is a matter of record. Research shows 40 percent of Fortune 500 companies were started by immigrants or the children of immigrants. Immigrants founded or co-founded more than half of Silicon Valley startups. Given this history and the deep U.S. economic slump, the proposed Immigration Driving Entrepreneurship in America (IDEA) Act now being considered by Congress should be a slam dunk. The measure, co-sponsored by Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-San Jose, and Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., would: • Create a new EB-1 green card category for holders of advanced degrees in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields from top universities. The wages they are paid must be as good as or better than those paid to holders of similar jobs. • Create a new green card category for entrepreneurs who have investors prepared to supply at least $500,000 toward a new commercial enterprise; who can prove their new businesses have created at least three full-time jobs for U.S. workers; or who meet other criteria. • Make it easier for the spouses and minor children of STEM-trained immigrants to receive visas to stay in the U.S. • Remove unnecessary hurdles that prevent companies from obtaining green cards for highly qualified potential employees. • Direct that hundreds of millions of dollars in fees paid by employers who file employment-based green card petitions for foreign workers be used to provide STEM scholarships to and improve STEM education for U.S. students. If history shows bringing in talented entrepreneurs triggers economic growth and creates new jobs — and it does — then why not seek out these individuals instead of forcing them to navigate an immigration system that often seems arbitrary or even capricious?

There’s no place like home ... with your parents I hate to brag, but my 7 yearold son came up with this cute little ritual that I just love. Sometimes I have this tendency to lock myself in a room while I’m in the “depths of despair” or what my boss calls “deadline.” When the door is shut and goes unanswered, Evan will slip little notes under the door with words of adoration and good cheer. Oh, and sometimes requests for bread and water. But mainly just little boy love notes to his mother. I keep them all of course. We’ve been staying at this wonderful bed and breakfast as we wait on our house to get finished. So as I was furiously typing one evening this week, I heard the sound of a note slip under my door. Taking a quick break, I bent down to retrieve the letter: “Dear Honorary Guest, “We hope you have enjoyed your stay during your time with us. “We’ve noticed you’ve taken full advantage of our extensive continental breakfast buffet each day. We’re glad to know that our meal service has adequately met your needs. “Also, any feedback about our full-service laundry service is

hours or more, I’ve moved back in with my parents for the first time in about a decade. I don’t think they missed me. Now that I think about it, there were never any signs of empty nest syndrome. I believe the Direct TV service was how they coped. If I can recall correctly, it was ordered right after the first tuition bills were mailed out in the fall of 2000. My mom has this wonderful giggle when something I say or do amuses her. I hear it every time I say these magic words: Why don’t we just move in and just stay here together? It makes her laugh every time. I understand that the last decade or so has led to a dramatic increase of young people in their 20s and 30s still living at home. My question is, Why would you do that to yourselves? Sure it’s free heat, food and access to all the comforts of home. But there is no such thing as a free lunch. These free amenities come with a cost. Like your social life! Gasp! No! I promise I don’t really belong here! The fact is, I’m 29 and I’m just trying to survive a week with my parents. My mother, a

postmaster in the tiny town of Christiansburg, is the nicest, sweetest lady of all time. There is not an evil bone in her body. I have no idea how I share 50 percent of her genes. She should be honored on a postal stamp. This is amusing since now she actually could be on a postal stamp since the United States Postal Service just announced that it is taking suggestions for living people to be stuck to pieces of mail. I guess they ran out of cool dead people? Well, Brenda deserves a postal stamp. She puts up with a lot. And there’s my dad. Well, at least this week I finally figured out where my art of colorful language originated. It dawned on me Tuesday when the electricians had cancelled two days in a row. I thought I was overhearing an old George Carlin sketch. All in all, my stay has been great — but I’m anxiously awaiting my new water softener. Oh, and I’m taking those pillows with me. And this blanket. And this DVD player. And some of those towels. Bed and breakfasts always have the nicest towels. “Twin” Melanie Yingst appears on Fridays in the Troy Daily News. Freeloader.

Insurgent attacks falling


KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — International forces in Afghanistan released new data Thursday showing violence trending downward in their favor, only a day after the U.N. reported considerably more clashes and other attacks per month than last year. The quick scheduling of the news conference to unveil the statistics underscored NATO’s sensitivity about how the war is perceived back home as the U.S. and other nations start to withdraw some forces with an eye toward pulling all combat troops out by the end of 2014. The new statistics show that insurgent attacks in the first eight months of the year were down 2 percent compared with the same period last year. The U.N. report, by contrast, found that the monthly average number of clashes and other attacks was running nearly 40 percent higher than last year. The U.N. study measured not only Taliban attacks but also assaults by NATO and Afghan forces on insurgents; it did not provide a breakdown between the two. The coalition cited methodological differences between the two surveys: The U.N. report counted a wide range of security incidents that the NATO report did not, including arrests and seizures of weapons caches. Nevertheless, both sets of figures confirm that Taliban fighters continue to display resilience despite U.S. claims of advances against the insurgents in their southern strongholds. The militants have opened new fronts in the

She is survived by her daughters, Amanda Rolls of Lexington, S.C., and Abby Rolls of ROLLS Lexington, S.C.; and by her two granddaughters, Devan and Kaylee Sampman.

Ms. Rolls was born Dec. 3, 1951, in Troy, and was a 1970 graduate of Newton High School. She had worked for the last 25 years in South Carolina in the healthcare field.

said Victor Lira, civil defense director for Miranda state. He said five people suffered scrapes or trauma while the rest were treated for respiratory problems or high blood pressure. Lira said the engineer of the rear train died. President Hugo Chavez said he regretted the accident. He urged Venezuelans not to speculate about possible causes but to await the results of an investigation. “I lament the death of an employee, the driver of the train,” Chavez said. The injury toll was low in part because the trains that collided were almost empty, heading out of the capital as rush hour traffic flowed the other way, Lira said. He said one of those trains had about 40 passengers on board, while the other wasn’t carrying passengers. The train that managed to avoid the crash was filled with about 1,000 passengers.

with last year. Direct-fire attacks from insurgents fell by 30 percent in June through August compared to the same period last year. “The actual enemy-initiated attacks are down,” said German Brig. Gen. Carsten Jacobson, a spokesman for the coalition. “That is what we are observing as an indicator that actually violence trends are going down in our favor.” The coalition defines “enemy-initiated attacks” as all militant actions, such as direct and indirect fire, shooting at aircraft from the ground, roadside bombings and mine strikes. Potential or attempted attacks by militants are not included in this figure. Since May of this year,

the monthly number of these attacks has been lower than the same month in 2010, something not seen since 2007, the coalition said. Moreover, the coalition said that in 17 of the past 22 weeks, these attacks were lower than the same week of last year. “The important thing is that we are looking at a decrease overall in comparison to last year … with a higher number of troops” in the country, Jacobson said. Coalition officials at the briefing said the international force expected a 17 percent to 30 percent increase in insurgent-initiated attacks this year partly because of the 10,000 to 25,000 additional coalition forces and 60,000 more Afghan security forces compared with 2010.

They were among about 3,000 people evacuated from the area, including about 2,000 who were aboard other trains not involved in the accident, officials said. Rescuers drove trucks atop the tracks into the tunnel to evacuate some of the passengers. Hundreds walked out of the tunnel on foot, and others rode on

small maintenance trains. About 100 people, most of them elderly people and children, were evacuated by helicopter. The government sent buses to carry passengers whose trains were blocked by the crash, adding to the normal traffic. The 25-mile (41-kilometer) train line carries about 60,000 passengers a day.

Model airplanes hit public radar BOSTON (AP) — Model airplanes are suddenly on the public’s radar as potential terrorist weapons. A 26year-old man from a Boston suburb was arrested Wednesday and accused of plotting to attack the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol with remote-controlled model planes packed with explosives. These are not balsa-wood-andrubber-band toys investigators are talking about. The FBI said Rezwan Ferdaus hoped to use military-jet replicas, 5 to 7 1/2 feet long, guided by GPS devices and capable of speeds over 100 mph. Federal officials have long been aware of the possibility someone might try to use such planes as weapons, but there are no restrictions on their purchase — Ferdaus is said to have bought his over the Internet. Counterterrorism experts and model-aircraft hobbyists said it would be nearly impossible to inflict

CASSTOWN — Robert J. Schimp, 87, of Casstown, Ohio, passed away at 10:07 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2011, at Upper Valley Medical Center, Troy. He was born Jan. 8, 1924, in Piqua. He was married to Beverlee Ann (Seabold ) Schimp on June 13, 1953; and she passed away Jan. 21, 2006. Survivors include one daughter and son-in-law, Sheryl Ann and James Lewis, of Casstown. He also is survived by several grandchildren, greatgrandchildren and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; two sons, Glenn Michael Schimp and Robert Jay Schimp; grandson, John Wayne “Duke” Lewis; three sisters, Lucille Hemmert, Catherine Scheer and Ruby Martzall. Robert was a graduate of the Fairmont High School of Dayton. He was an Army Air

large-scale damage of the sort Ferdaus allegedly envisioned using model planes. The aircraft are too small, can’t carry enough explosives and are too tricky to fly, they said. “The idea of pushing a button and this thing diving into the Pentagon is kind of a joke, actually,” said Greg Hahn, technical director of the Academy of Model Aeronautics. Rick Nelson, a former Navy helicopter pilot who is now a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said Ferdaus would have had to hit a window or other vulnerable area to maximize damage, and that would have taken precision flying. “Flying a remote-controlled plane isn’t as easy as it actually looks, and then to put an explosive on it and have that explosive detonate at the time and place that you want it add to the difficulty of actually doing it,” he said. Ferdaus, a Muslim American from

Ashland, was arrested after federal agents posing as al-Qaida members delivered what he believed was 24 pounds of C-4 explosive, authorities said. He was charged with attempting to damage or destroy a federal building with explosives. A federal affidavit claims he began planning “jihad” against the U.S. in early 2010 after becoming convinced through jihadi websites and videos that America was evil. Ferdaus had a physics degree from Northeastern University and enjoyed “taking stuff apart” and “learning on my own,” according to court papers. The model planes Ferdaus eyed were the F-4 Phantom and the F-86 Sabre, small-scale versions of military jets, investigators said. The F-4 is the more expensive of the two, at up to $20,000, Hahn said. The F-86, one of which Ferdaus actually obtained, costs $6,000 to $10,000 new.

DEATH OF NATIONAL INTEREST • Phillip Matthew Hannan NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Phillip Matthew Hannan, the former New Orleans archbishop who sought to console a grieving nation with his eulogy for John F. Kennedy and who served more than three decades as the popular leader of his Roman Catholic archdiocese, has died on the 47th anniversary of his ordination. The 98-year-old clergyman, who was in declining health for years, died peacefully before dawn Thursday. Hannan’s body will lie in state at New Orleans Notre Dame seminary for three days starting Monday followed by a funeral mass Thursday afternoon at St. Louis Cathedral here. Hannan was assigned to

New Orleans in 1965 from Washington, where he had been an auxiliary bishop since 1956. When he went to inspect his future haunts at the ancient St. Louis Cathedral — in the riotous French Quarter teeming with tourists, street musicians, mimes and tarot card readers — he showed his unique humor as a churchman. “This is the only city where an archbishop can walk into his cathedral while a band outside in Jackson Square is playing ‘When the Saints Go Marching In,’” he famously quipped. Hannan was the 11th archbishop in New Orleans history and its most active, combining conservative politics with generous service to the poor.


north and west and have stepped up attacks in the east, including high-profile suicide bombings inside the heavily secured capital, Kabul. That resilience renews questions about whether the Afghan government and its Western allies have a solid grip on security, and whether the Afghan forces can ever secure the nation by themselves. In a briefing at NATO headquarters in Kabul, the coalition said the Taliban were relying more on roadside bombs to fight the war instead of shooting at better-armed international troops. Roadside bomb activity, which includes both explosions and attempted bombings, rose 25 percent in the eightmonth period compared

1 dead, about 30 hurt in train crash CHARALLAVE, Venezuela (AP) — Two commuter trains collided in a tunnel outside Caracas on Thursday, killing at least one person, injuring about 30 and leaving frightened passengers gasping for air in the dark, officials said. One train suddenly braked due to an apparent malfunction and another crashed into it from the rear, causing the first to derail, Transportation Minister Francisco Garces said on state television. Officials said a packed train coming in the opposite direction was able to stop before colliding with the others, averting a possible disaster. The crash apparently cut power in the tunnel between Caracas and the suburbs of Los Valles del Tuy. Passengers “remained inside the wagons without air conditioning and within the tunnel,” causing some to feel a sense of suffocation,

For the Troy Daily News Area families have a way to kick off the fall season with a local park this month. Lost Creek Reserve 2645 E. State Route 41 in Troy is the setting for the Miami County Park District’s Fall Farm Fest. The event will be Oct. 8-9 and is the third year for the festival. Last year, more than 9,000 people attended the two day event. “We anticipate an even bigger turnout this year due to increased awareness and additional music programming,” Jerry Eldred executive director of the Miami County Park District, said. “Events like the Fall

TROY Farm Fest add to the exceptional quality of life in the Miami Valley. Thanks to the support of generous sponsors and our levy, we are able to offer this family friendly event to the public free of charge,” Eldred said. The festival offers music, food, hayrides, a scarecrow contest, children’s games, children’s pluck and strum music corner, demonstrations, vendors, display booths, farm animals, kiddie tractor pulls, a pumpkin patch, children’s crafts and more. This year the music portion of the festival has grown to include headliner

bands Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers and NewFound Road. NewFound Road will be performing at 3:45 p.m. Oct. 8 and Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers will be wrapping up the festival at 3:45 p.m. Oct. 9. There also will be 10 local and regional bands performing bluegrass/American acoustic/folk music over the course of the weekend. “We are so excited to have these nationally known bluegrass bands at our festival this year,” Eldred said. The concerts are free to the public. Guests are encouraged to bring a lawn chair because of limited seating. Guests won’t want to miss wagon rides around the farm. The route takes you


Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers will be wrapping up the Fall Farm Fest with a performance at 3:45 p.m. Oct. 9. The band is just one of the many performances that will be heard during the weekend. down a farm lane lined with scarecrows. The scarecrows are part of an annual contest where local businesses








show their talent and creativity by constructing a scarecrow. Last year there were more than 40 entered in the contest. Visitors are invited to vote for winners in several different categories such as funniest, best of show, best commercial and best noncommercial. This year we expect more than 50 area businesses to participate. There are plenty of activities for children at the Fall Farm Fest. New this year is the Scott Family McDonald’s Pluck and Strum area for children. This area is designed for children to try out different musical instruments periodically throughout the day and also make a musical craft. “We thought it would be nice for the children to try out some of the instruments that they see on stage,” Tama Cassidy, assistant program director for the Miami

September 30, 2011

County Park District, said. “They can also make a basic musical instrument and play along with the bands.” The traditional children’s activities sponsored by Upper Valley Medical Center also will be available. “We have old fashioned games and crafts. Kids especially love the pony rides, rope making and pumpkin painting,” Cassidy said. Another big hit each year is a diddie tractor pull sponsored by Koenig Equipment where children can compete for trophies. A farm animal petting zoo is located in the bottom of 1832 historic bank barn for children to discover. On Sunday, a small flock of sheep will be kept in the bottom of the barn as they await the working sheep dog demonstration. While participants explore the working farm, they can see demonstrations on archery, how to harvest and make honey, how to weave cloth and how to make rope. Guests also can learn about organic farming methods currently in practice in the Lost Creek fields. There will be a self-guided tour of the Woodland Loop Trail for guests to take at their leisure. This is a tree ID trail that informs people about the different tree species located at the reserve. A handful of select vendors will be selling everything from food to artwork.

Sounds like you may have dodged a bullet this time around Dear Annie: I am a 67-year-old woman who has been deeply hurt. My husband died seven years ago, and I suffered deep depression. My psychiatrist told me to meet new people, so I did. I joined an expensive dating service, which was a disaster. Then I went to dinner with a girlfriend in an upscale nightclub. A good-looking fellow asked me to dance, and we clicked immediately. He was charming, adorable and could dance. I was smitten. Over the next two years, we traveled extensively, cooked together, went to the beach and had a lot in common. My family embraced him and was so happy for me. There were a few concerns, but they didn't seem important. He told me he'd been addicted to alcohol and tobacco, but stopped using both 30 years ago. Three weeks ago, he brought marijuana to my home and proceeded to smoke. I was appalled and told him to never bring it into my house again. He then proceeded to sneak it in the bathroom. He refused to quit and said if I want to see him, I'd have to go to his place. (His house is a wreck, and there is no place for me to sit.) We had an argument, and I haven't heard from him since. I am shocked that the man I loved is an addict. I will never accept having a pot smoker in my life. He claims he didn't lie about it, but I consider this a lie by omission. How could he do this after all our time together? — Hurt in Connecticut Dear Hurt: There were probably signs during your two years together, but people in love are prone to overlook red flags, especially if they are unfamiliar with the markings. We don't doubt that this man enjoyed your company, but his addiction comes first, and he isn't willing to give it up for you. We know you are hurting, but please know you also are lucky to have missed this train. Dear Annie: I am an amateur writer and publisher of a minority newspaper. It circulates all over the U.S., so I am becoming rather famous in my ethnic community. I often receive unsolicited newly published books in my native language. The authors ask me to write some words of praise for the book. Whenever possible, I give them the positive comments I feel they deserve. My question is, how do I respond if the book is not well written? Do I tell the author my true feelings or give no reply at all? I know how to respond in my culture, but since I have been living in the U.S., I think I should do "as in Rome." Please help. — Cultural Stranger Dear Stranger: You can respond with kind words that are not exactly praise ("You have clearly worked hard on this" or "I wish you the best of luck"), or you can tell the writer that you are too inundated with material to read everything, so sorry. However, although you are "in Rome," the people who write to you expect you to respond according to your own cultural norms, so you might want to reconsider. Dear Annie: This is for "No Pets, Please," whose friends and relatives insist on bringing their pets to her home. She should not worry for one second about saying the dogs are not welcome. I am an officer in a breed club and have raised and shown dogs for years. Dogs are welcome in my home, but if they are staying overnight, I request a crate and do the same with my dogs when I visit elsewhere. Every one of my dogs is a fourfooted child, but it would never occur to me to bring a dog to someone's home unless told he was invited. Part of being a responsible dog owner is recognizing that not everyone is as nuts as we are. — Owner, Handler Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

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


Counting down to getting it done Dear Heloise: I love your column and read it every day! Thanks for making everyone’s life easier! My hint is psychological. When I have to do something repetitive, I count backward. I count down when I’m exercising, unloading hay or even doing housework. It seems easier to do that one last thing than doing the 10th sit-up or stacking the 10th bale of hay. Counting down really makes a job easier for me! Thanks. — Terri Wadsworth, via email Love it! You are right — it makes whatever you are doing more like a game. — Heloise SAFER PILLOWS Dear Heloise: Here is some-

Hints from Heloise Columnist thing that really helps during and after an illness. This is one that I have never seen you publish: Put your bed pillows in the dryer on high for about 5-10 minutes (Heloise here: 30 minutes is better) to eliminate germs, and spray with disinfectant spray after taking them out. This keeps them from reinfecting a child or others

with a sickness. As a mother of six, this really did help! — Peggy, via email TRAVEL HINT Dear Heloise: While driving across several states recently with young children, in an effort to get further faster, we stopped at a drive-thru restaurant for lunch one day. While trying to hand out food from the front seat and telling the kids to put napkins under the food to protect their clothing and the car seats, I had a thought: Next time we go on a car trip, I’ll pack an apron for each child to put on. All the food can sit in their laps, and as they eat, the crumbs will be collected in the apron! — Laura in Texas

Good thought, and here’s one to consider: Keep a couple of largesize (old) shirts in the car. Have the kids put them on backward, and you have an apron or smock. — Heloise BOX IT UP Dear Heloise: I spruced up several boring, old magazine boxes by covering them with outdated road maps. They were a bit tedious and time-consuming to fit so they would be wrinkle-free, but they hold maps, travel brochures, etc., and add lots of pizzazz. Free, except for time! Thanks for your helpful and sometimes amusing tips. — Virginia O., Lincoln, Neb.



Friday, September 30, 2011










HOROSCOPE Friday, Sept. 30, 2011 Your earning potential continues to look encouraging in the next year, provided you don’t make any needless vocational alterations. You could lose out by making a careless switch. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Go out with friends and enjoy yourself socially, but don’t waste your money on frivolous pursuits. You’ll have a far better time getting value from what you spend. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Be careful not to take on more than you can comfortably complete. If you start a bunch of projects and finish none, there could be problems for a long time to come. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Maintaining a positive attitude not only boosts your disposition, it helps you be accepted by your peers. Harboring doubts or being moody causes you to worry about things that’ll never happen. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Find a way to nicely wiggle out of lending some money to a friend who has never repaid you for previous floaters. Your pocketbook could use the breather. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Hoping to impress someone by affecting pretentious mannerisms will only make you look phony. Relax and let your wonderful personality prevail. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Having an indiscreet conversation with a friend about things that should remain confidential could turn your secrets into common knowledge. Keep your own counsel. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Watch yourself so that you don’t snub someone or treat a person rudely just because you are envious of his or her achievements. You’ll get your chance to shine soon. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Strive to be decisive instead of wishy-washy or condescending, which only makes you look weak. A failure to take a firm position could both confuse and annoy your listeners. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — First seek out the proper instructions from an expert before using any unfamiliar tools or materials. You could get in trouble very quickly if you simply start throwing switches. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — If you have to associate with someone whom you know from experience is deceitful and underhanded, keep your guard up. People don’t easily change. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — So that you’re not construed as being rude and thoughtless, be mindful of any promises or appointments you’ve made. Oversights on your part will not easily be forgiven or forgotten. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You’ve heard it before: “Unless you have something nice and complimentary to say about a co-worker, don’t say anything at all.” This never gets old, unlike rude or nasty behavior.

105 Announcements

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

Indians win in war

Troy’s Jenna Selby puts down one of her 16 kills Thursday night against the Piqua Indians at Piqua High School. The Trojans needed to win for a share of the GWOC North title, but the Indians were able to hold them off in four games.

Troy battles back from 2-0, falls in 4 BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor After falling behind 2-0, Troy — needing a win to get a share of the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division title — fought back and gave Piqua everything it could handle. But Brooke Reinke — who the Trojan defense practically turned into a non-factor in the first three games — had the final word.

Butler bests Troy for GWOC North title Staff Reports ARCANUM — The Troy Trojans entered Thursday with a slim lead over Butler. They left Beechwood wondering what had gone wrong. Troy shot a 352 Thursday at the Greater Western Ohio Conference postseason tournament — 34 strokes more than they shot at the preseason tournament — finishing 12th overall at Beechwood Golf Course and second in the GWOC North Division to the Aviators.

Milton-Union was led by Kinsey Douglas with eight kills and Michelle Richardson with seven kills. Kate Nealeigh had 10 assists and five service aces for the match. The Bulldogs rest until next Thursday when they host the Madison Mohawks in what will be the last volleyball match in Milton-Union’s current high

Devils top Arrows Staff Reports Tippecanoe officially defeated Tecumseh 4-0 Thursday — but one match was still in progress when rain halted the proceedings. At first singles, Sierra Nellessen was leading Taylor Culbertson 6-1, 4-6, 1-0 when the match was suspended due to rain. Play will continue Saturday at Schroeder Tennis Center at 10 a.m.



“We didn’t play as well as we would’ve hoped,” Troy coach Ty Mercer said. “The kids tried hard, but it wasn’t meant to be. “We’ve been an 18-hole team all year, but this was our worst 18-hole score of the year. It just came at an inopportune time.” Senior Zack Rohr led the Trojans with an 84 and Connor Super shot an 86 — the only two Trojans below 90. Kaleb Tittle and Mason Riemer both shot 91, Cam Weaver added 93 and Dalton Cascaden shot 94. At the preseason tournament, three Trojans were under 80 and two under 85 for a fourth-place 318.

Staff Reports


SPRINGBORO — Trailing only 1-0 at the half, Troy had a chance to come back in the second. But Springboro (7-1-3) got a penalty kick early in the second half and tacked on one more insurance goal before lightning forced an early stoppage to the game in a 3-0 Trojan loss Thursday.

“They’re a good club, and we played on turf for the first time this year, as well. The weather didn’t help us any,” Troy coach Richard Phillips said. “We just couldn’t generate any offense tonight. We couldn’t put any passes together.” Troy returns home Tuesday for a key Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division

matchup against Butler. “It’s going to be a tough match,” Phillips said. “We need to get our passing game going. Tonight, we just couldn’t put anything together.” Bethel 6, Tri-Village 2 NEW MADISON — Kyle Hamlin and Joe Zimmerman each scored two goals, leading Bethel to a 6-2 victory on a wet night at Tri-Village. Hamlin added three assists

and Zimmerman had two, Carlos Panzardi and Tyler Banks each scored a goal and Will Gresham had an assist. “”It was a very strange night. The weather was definitely a factor,” Bethel coach Bob Hamlin said. “The wind and rain made the conditions kind of miserable, but both teams played through it.”

■ CONTINUED FROM 14 “It was a tale of two nines today,” Mercer said. “One of our guys shot 41 on the front then turned around and shot 52 on the back. We had some solid nines, but we had a rough time on either the front or back — we couldn’t put 18 together.” Butler finished the postseason tournament fifth overall with 334 and Greenville was seventh with 338. Piqua was 10th with 346. Darrin Grove led the way with a 75, Brad Anderson shot 87, Brandon Bercott and Colin Lavey both shot 92 and Cody Congdon and Kenton Kiser both shot 94. Super and Rohr both earned spots on the AllGWOC North first team, Tittle was on the second team and Weaver was given honorable mention. Centerville won the overall title with a 294 and swept the top three individual spots. Austin Swipe was medalist with a 72 and Caleb Wolters and Taylor Holt both shot 73. Troy travels to Piqua Country Club for a trimatch against Piqua and Sidney on Monday before beginning Division I Sectional play Wednesday at Reid Park.

■ CONTINUED FROM 14 down the stretch,” Troy coach Michelle Owen said. “At the end, we were down 24-23. Brooke is a senior for them, she’s wanted this league title for a long time — and she found a way to get the ball down. Give credit to her.” Troy (11-7, 3-2), the defending GWOC North champion, lost a five-game match to Butler earlier in the season and needed Piqua to knock off the Aviators for a shot at a shared title. The Indians did just that — leaving the Trojans still needing a win head-to-head over Piqua. But the Indians (13-3, 5-0) won the first two games with strong serves, keeping Troy out of system for the first half of the match. And with Reinke not piling up offensive numbers, Shelby Vogler filled the void, picking up 10 kills and a block in the first two games alone — including scoring the final six Piqua points in Game 2 to bring the Indians one game away from an outright title. “We knew coming in what Piqua was going to try to do. It was just a matter of whether or not we could stop it,” Owen said. “At times we did a nice job, and at times we struggled to make the adjustments we needed to make.” But the Trojans were far from done. Troy’s defense stepped up — particularly in the front row — stuffing the Indians’ kill attempts back at them repeatedly. And when Piqua tried to go over the top or around the sides, the Trojans’ back row was there to make some amazing saves. But even with five kills from Jenna Selby — who finished with 16 kills on the night — the Trojans

TV South 3, Miami East 1 WEST ALEXANDRIA — The Miami East Vikings traveled to Twin Valley South Thursday night to play in less than desirable weather conditions, falling 3-1. Ross Snodgrass scored the lone goal for Miami East in the 24th minute on an assist from Jake Miller. “Tonight was a tough loss due to weather not being on our side, but we kept possession for 80 percent of the game,” Miami East coach Michael Schumacher said. “I am pleased with the MillerSnodgrass connection. It was clicking on all cylinders. We were unlucky to not get more goals.”

The Vikings are back in action Monday with a rescheduled game against Fairlawn at 6 p.m. at home. • Girls Miami East 6, TV South 0 WEST ALEXANDRIA — The Vikings put Thursday’s game at Twin Valley South away early in the second half — before lightning and rain caused the game’s official early end — in a 6-0 victory in Cross County Conference play. “In the first half, we came out a little lethargic until late in the half,” Miami East coach Lil Carson said. “So I told the girls at halftime to step it up and show me how they wanted to finish the game. We came out and got three goals in the first six minutes of the second half.” Lindsay Roeth scored a pair of goals and had an

assist to lead the balanced Miami East attack. Chelsea Sherman had a goal and an assist, Katelyn Gardella, Montana Hahn and Taylor Young each scored a goal, Katrina Sutherly had two assists and Taylor Mitchell had an assist. Miami East (8-1-2, 5-0) travels to Piqua Saturday. Troy Christain 1, Bethel 1 BRANDT — Troy Christian tied Bethel 1-1 Thursday night at Bethel. Troy Christian went up 1-0 after Amanda Slone scored on a corner kick. Karli Riviello had a tremendous game in the goal with 15 saves. Maddie Ellerbrock tied the game up on a penalty kick with 10 minutes left. Troy Christian (8-0-3) hosts Anna Monday, while Bethel (3-8-1) travels to Butler the same night.

NBA running out of time NEW YORK (AP) — They don’t have a deal yet, and they are just about out of time. After some two years of on-and-off negotiations, that’s about all NBA players and owners agree on. The gaps in their financial proposals have been so great that they sometimes decide it’s best to just talk about something else. Now they have to figure it out quickly. Without at least getting very close to the framework of a new collective bargaining agreement this weekend, hopes of the 2011-12 season starting on time

would be all but lost. “We realize that the calendar, the clock, the watch, whatever you want to say, is running out in terms of starting our regular season on time. So we’re going to try to get some things done this weekend and see what we can do,” said the Lakers’ Derek Fisher, president of the players’ association. The owners’ labor relations committee and the union’s executive committee perhaps joined by some All-Stars will meet Friday and have committed to keep talking throughout the weekend.

Both sides have cautioned that bringing back the large groups after as series of discussions among smaller parties doesn’t mean they are close, but rather that more voices are required to consider the crucial decisions. There are 11 owners and nine players on the committees, including AllStar Chris Paul, who may try to bring along friends such as Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James that are scheduled to join him Saturday in a charity game in his hometown of Winston-Salem, N.C.

Troy’s Marie Rank goes up for a kill Thursday at Piqua. couldn’t build a lead larger than two points until an ace by Cassandra Rice made it 24-21. After a Vogler kill kept Piqua alive, the Indians were called in the net to force a fourth game. “We knew in Game 3 that we had to come out and have a sense of urgency, and we did that,” Owen said. “We let them creep back in, but we closed it out well.” Piqua built a 13-7 lead in Game 4, but the Trojans fought back with more tough defense. A huge dig by Leah Selby on a kill attempt by Reinke led to a Jenna Selby kill that tied the game at 14-14, and Troy eventually took their first lead of the game at 18-17. Troy held a 19-17 lead, but Reinke somehow got a kill to stay inside the back

line and Piqua won six of the next seven points to go up 23-20. Troy closed the gap to one, but Reinke was too much. “We got down early in the fourth game, but we battled,” Owen said. “We clawed our way back into it and even took the lead. Games like that are why you play — they’re fun to be in.” Marie Rank had eight kills and two aces, Jenn Monnier had five kills and four blocks, Emily Moser had five kills and two blocks and Leah Selby had three kills and seven digs. Chelsey Sakal had 19 assists and four digs, Mackenzie Rice had 10 assists, Danielle Wright had nine digs, Cassandra Rice had eight digs and Tori Fenter had six digs. Troy begins GWOC tournament play Tuesday.

Reds failed to fill holes CINCINNATI (AP) — Johnny Cueto came down with a bum shoulder. So did Homer Bailey. Bronson Arroyo was tested for something called valley fever and was diagnosed with mononucleosis instead. And that was only spring training. The hits kept coming for the Cincinnati Reds, who didn’t make much of a stand while trying to defend their NL Central title. “If our year’s been a road, it’s been a foggy road,” manager Dusty Baker said. “Waiting for the sun to burn it off, it never did.” The fog rolled in shortly after the 91-win team was bumped from the playoffs, no-hit and swept by the Philadelphia Phillies. They spent more than $150 million in the offseason on contract extensions for Cueto, Arroyo, Joey Votto and Jay Bruce. The tried to patch over problems at shortstop and left field. General manager Walt Jocketty thought that by keeping the core of a playoff team intact, it would be set

up for another title run. His biggest moves backfired, and the Reds finished in third place at 79-83 their 10th losing season in the last 11 years. There are significant decisions coming off that 83-loss wake-up call. “This is going to be a strange offseason, I think,” Arroyo said. “I don’t think anyone in the clubhouse right here has any idea of the moves the front office wants to make. They have a lot on their plate and I don’t know what direction they are going in. Are they are going to keep it young and keep the core guys and add a couple of pieces? Or will they make drastic trades and trade some of the prospects to acquire other guys?” In some ways, they’re stuck in the same place as a year ago. Fresh off their first playoff appearance in 15 years, the Reds seemed flush with offense and young pitching. The problems areas were shortstop, left field and third base, where Scott Rolen was having problems

with his back and neck. They replaced shortstop Orlando Cabrera with Edgar Renteria and let him share the job with Paul Janish. Both struggled mightily. They kept Jonny Gomes in left field and brought in Fred Lewis to share the spot, a move that backfired, too. Rolen’s body gave out again he played in only 65 games, batted .242, hit five homers and had shoulder surgery. As a result, the Reds took a giant step back at three of the eight everyday positions. That wasn’t all. Votto followed his National League MVP season with another impressive one, leading the league in doubles, walks, on-base percentage and batting with runners in scoring position. Bruce had an upand-down season, finishing with 32 homers and 97 RBIs and a .256 average. Drew Stubbs eventually lost his leadoff spot in the order because of his propensity to strike out and ended up fanning 205 times, most in the majors.

Buccs, Vikings to decide CCC supremacy in key matchup BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor


A big inter-county rivalry. The only two teams left unbeaten in league play. Two teams neck-andneck in the race for the playoffs. Homecoming night. It’s no secret just how important tonight’s game will be when Covington travels to Miami East for the biggest Cross County Conference showdown of the year. “This is the week we need to peak,” Miami East coach Max Current said. “You want to peak at the right time, and hopefully we’re in peak mode.” “Games like this are why you play,” Covington coach Dave Miller said. “This is why you lift weights, this is why you practice, this is why you do everything that you do.”

Covington enters the game with a 5-0 record, and Miami East’s only blemish is a Week 1 non-conference loss to MiltonUnion. Most importantly, though, both teams boast perfect 4-0 CCC marks — the only two teams left in the league that can claim that. Whoever wins tonight claims the inside track for the CCC title and needs only to avoid tripping up in the final four weeks of the year. Last season, the Buccaneers defeated the Vikings in an overtime thriller en route to the CCC championship. “Every year we’ve been in the league, it’s been a pretty good game — and a very pivotal game,” Current said. “If you want to win the league, you’ve got to go through Covington. They’re the big dogs. You’ve got to take them on,

and you’ve got to defeat them.” Something that’s been next to impossible this season. Bethel came closest in Week 3, but the Buccs made clutch plays in the second half to escape with a 17-14 victory. Since then, Covington has steamrolled Bradford and obliterated TriCounty North — the only other unbeaten team besides the Buccs and Vikings at the time. “Against Bethel, and this is not taking away from what they did, because they played a heck of a game, we just didn’t come out with the same intensity and fire in the first half that we did in the second,” Miller said. “The last two weeks, we’ve been playing at a really high level of intensity. We’ve just got to keep playing 48 minutes.” Covington’s triple-option offense is particularly deadly, and

WEEK 6 TIPPECANOE (5-0, 0-0) at BELLEFONTAINE (1-4, 0-0): Aside from a blowout against Indian Lake in Week 3, the Tippecanoe Red Devils have been in close games on a weekly basis — and they’ve come through in the clutch and won each time. Bellefontaine’s lone win is over winless Sidney, and they’ve lost by one to Indian Lake and two to Ben Logan — both teams Tippecanoe has beaten already. If the Devils stay focused, they won’t need to worry about a close game tonight.

CARLISLE (2-3, 1-1) at MILTON-UNION (4-1, 1-0): Milton-Union needs to watch out this week, as Carlisle’s 2-3 record is pretty deceiving. Carlisle is scoring an average of 39 points per game this season — and defeated Milton-Union 42-0 last year during a 10-1 season. One way or another, the Bulldog defense — which, aside from a 28-27 loss to Tippecanoe, is giving up 12.3 points per game — will be tested tonight. Unstoppable force and immovable object meet head-on tonight.

BETHEL (2-3, 1-3) at TWIN VALLEY SOUTH (2-3, 2-2): Injuries have hurt the Bethel Bees as they finished off the toughest part of their Cross County Conference schedule — and after scoring 95 points in the first two weeks of the season, they’ve managed only 31 in three consecutive losses. That should change tonight, though, when they travel to Twin Valley South. The Panthers’ only two wins of the season have been against Mississinawa Valley and National Trail — a pair of winless teams in the CCC’s cellar. JEFFERSON (0-5, 0-2) at TROY CHRISTIAN (0-5, 0-1): Troy Christian’s narrow 21-20 loss in Week 4 to St. Wendelin at home seemed familiar for a reason — last season the Eagles lost 44-42 to Jefferson at Eagles Stadium. That Jefferson team finished 5-5, though, and tonight’s homecoming matchup is between a pair of teams searching for their first win of the year. The Eagles’ offense — which is averaging a mere 9.4 points per game — must wake up for Troy Christian to get off the schnide. BRADFORD (2-3, 1-3) at TRI-COUNTY NORTH (3-2, 3-1): Despite three losses in the past four games, the Railroaders are still 14th in the Division VI, Region 24 standings. Bradford’s two wins are against winless teams, though — Troy Christian and National Trail — and if they want to move up in the standings, the ’Roaders need to beat a winning team. They get their chance tonight at Tri-County North — a team coming off a sound drubbing at the hands of Covington last week but is still 10th in the region. LEHMAN (2-3) at UPPER SCIOTO (1-4): Lehman’s offense has finally come around after three straight losses to open the season. The Cavaliers outscored their first three games total two weeks in a row, beating Jefferson 56-0 and Troy Christian 38-6 after combining for a mere 34 points in losses to Anna, Minster and Indian Lake. The Cavs travel to Upper Scioto Valley tonight — a team giving up 37.8 points per game. There’s no reason to think Lehman’s offense will slow down tonight. PIQUA (3-2, 0-0) at TROTWOOD (5-0, 0-0): Piqua knows what it’s up against tonight. Trotwood is the No. 1 team in Division II, Region 8, is undefeated at 5-0 and hasn’t played a game closer than two touchdowns — a 35-21 Week 1 win over Thurgood Marshall. The Indians’ only other game against a team that currently has a winning record this year was a 40-33 loss to Lebanon, so we find out what kind of team Piqua is tonight.

Fellers and (Josh) Snyder are both fast and shifty, and (Kevin) McMaken can run over you. They’re formidable offensively and haven’t given up much on defense. It’ll be a major challenge.” Which is fine with Miller. “I like it,” he said of playing four tough league games in a row. “You find out more about yourselves. This is what makes the MAC teams so tough.” And since Covington moved up to Division V in the offseason, both teams are in D-V, Region 20 — with Covington in sixth in the playoff race and Miami East seventh. Oh, and one more storyline. “It’s also the 50th game in the series history,” Current said. “Covington has a 31-16-2 edge. Plus it’s homecoming, and that just adds to the drama of the game.”


COVINGTON (5-0, 4-0) at MIAMI EAST (4-1, 4-0): Since at least 2006 — and likely beyond — the eventual champion in the Cross County Conference has been undefeated. The only two unbeaten teams left in CCC meet tonight, so it’s fair to call this one the midseason league title game. Both still have tough tests left on the schedule, but none will be more critical than tonight’s game. The Buccaneers were tested in a 17-14 win at Bethel but have cruised since. The Vikings are just getting into the meat of their CCC slate, but a 35-point turnaround after halftime in a win at Bethel last week was pretty convinving. Oh yeah, and this game has huge playoff implications. It doesn’t get any bigger than this.

The Games

the Vikings know they’ll have to be on their toes and not take ay plays off. “Defensively, you’ve got to carry out your assignments and stay focused and play disciplined,” Current said. “You can’t be chasing the ball. You can stuff them 10 or 11 times in a row, but then that 11th time they’re going 70 yards for a touchdown because one guy blows an assignment. You’ve got to play disciplined and hope the guys don’t get too nosy — you’ve got to hope everyone does their job and believes that their teammates will do theirs.” But the Buccs are equally worried about the Miami East offense — which has been putting points on the board at an alarming rate. “They’re very well coached. Max does a great job with them. They’ve got three really good backs,” Miller said. “(Michael)

■ Troy Notebook

Trojan guards lastest in long line BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor From Bill Garfield and Shane Fobian to Chris Jackson and Nick Guziewicz to Adam Ritter and Josh Mays to Todd Carter and Lee Philpot to Joe Brading and Daniel Shaw, one thing has seemingly always held true of offensive lines under Troy coach Steve Nolan — great guards come in pairs. “A lot of that is the way our offense and our schemes work,” Nolan said. “Because we rely so much on our guards in terms of assignments and the way they pull, you have to have two guards who are both playing well. We’ve had some pretty good guard combos over the years.” Current Trojan guards Ethan Hargrove and Cody Zeller appear to be the latest in that long line of successful Troy tandem guards. “They are both playing really well,” Nolan said. “They both had great games last week against Beavercreek.” That Hargrove is play-




ing well comes as no shock. A three-year starter for the Trojans, the 6-foot-3, 265pound senior is being looked at by a number of Division I college programs. The undersized Zeller, a 5-foot-10, 220pound junior, has been a pleasant surprise for the Trojans. He’s in his first year as a starter and played only sparingly on varsity last season. has really “Zeller stepped it up,” Nolan said. “He’s done a nice job in there for us.” • MAY DAY: With 140 passing yards last week against Beavercreek, Trojan quarterback Cody May remains well ahead of pace to throw for more

MAY than 1,000 yards this season. Through five games, the senior has completed 44 of 74 passes for 653 yards with nine touchdowns and just two interceptions. If he’s able to continue at his current pace, May would throw for 1,683 yards this season. May — who threw for more than 1,000 yards as a junior — is looking to become the first Troy quarterback to throw for 1,000 or more yards in consecutive seasons since Trojan legend Tommy Myers topped the 1,000-yard mark in both 1959 and 1960. “Cody continues to play well for us,” Nolan said. “He’s just been really



steady. He’s been making all the right reads and does a nice job delivering the ball. Obviously he’s throwing for a lot of yards, but you also have to look at the fact he’s thrown nine touchdowns and only two interceptions. He’s not putting our defense in bad situations by throwing a bunch of interceptions.” • WHAT ABOUT THE RUN?: While May is on track to throw for 1,000 yards this season, the chances of Troy — which for three decades under Nolan has been known primarily as a running team — producing a 1,000-yard rusher this season would appear unlikely — although certainly not out

■ Cover Story

BUTCHER of the question. Through five games this season, senior Marcus Foster has 60 carries for 379 yards, while Isaiah Williams has 41 carries for 221 yards. At their current pace, Foster would finish with 758 yards this season, while Williams would finish 442 yards. All hopes for a 1,000yard rusher are not lost, however. Last week against Beavercreek, Foster rushed for 125 yards — his highest output of the season. Should he average 125 yards per game over the final five weeks of the season, Foster would finish with 1,004 yards. The last Troy running

back to top the 1,000-yard mark in a season was Matt Allen in 2008. Should Troy not be able to produce a 1,000-yard rusher this season, it would mark the third season in a row — something that’s only happened one other time (2001-2003) since Nolan’s arrival at Troy in 1984. • DOING IT WITH BLAIR: Last week against the Beavers marked the first time all season senior inside linebacker Zach “The” Butcher did not lead the Trojans in tackles. Fellow inside linebacker Chris Blair led the Trojans with 18 tackles, while Butcher — who missed much of the fourth quarter as a precautionary measure after suffering a minor ankle injury — finished with 14 tackles. “Blair had a great game,” Nolan said. “He played his best game of the year.” Butcher leads the Trojans with 69 tackles this season, while Blair is second with 55 tackles. Foster, who also plays defensive back, is third with 43 tackles.

■ Troy-Butler Preview

Trojans face huge test vs. Aviators BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor


Troy linebacker Ian Nadolny (40) makes a tackle last year against Chaminade Julienne.

‘Mister Consistent’ Nadolny makes plays for Trojans BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor Ian Nadolny sat in Troy football coach Steve Nolan’s office Monday, listing the various attritutes of Trojan linebackers. A variety of names came up — none of which were his. Troy’s strongest linebacker? “Probably (Chris) Blair or (Zach) Butcher,” Nadolny said. Troy’s fastest linebacker? “I would have to say either (Nick) Zimmer or Miles (Hibbler),” Nadolny said. So where, exactly, does that leave Nadolny? “I guess I’m just somewhere in between,” Nadolny said. “I’m not really either the fastest or the strongest.” Perhaps not — but it certainly could be argued Nadolny, a junior outside linebacker, is amongst the most valuable on the team. While he may not possess the strength of inside linebackers Blair or Butcher or the speed of fellow outside linebackers Hibbler or Zimmer, Nadolny always seems to find a way to make plays for the Trojans. What the 6-foot-2, 190-pound Nadolny may lack in physical gifts, he more than

makes up for with tenacity and an innate understanding of the way the game is supposed to be played. “He’s Mr. Consistent,” Nolan said. “He plays the game smart and he understands the concepts of our defense. He’s not the strongest guy in the world, but he’s athletic enough to go out there and make plays. He always takes the proper angles and he’s always around the ball to make plays.” While Nadolny is more than capable of making plays — he’s recorded 23 tackles with two sacks, two quarterback hurries and three passes broken up through five weeks this season — perhaps his greatest asset to the team is his ability to make other Trojan linebackers look better. Troy’s other three starting linebackers all have more tackles than he does — Butcher leads the team with 69, Blair has 55 and Zimmer has 35 — and they have the numbers they do in large part because of Nadolny. “As an outside linebacker, it’s not really my job to make tackles,” Nadolny said. “I’m supposed to turn everything back to the inside, where Blair and Butcher make the tackles. My job is to feed them.” Nadolny doesn’t mind doing the grunt work for the Trojans. While he may not be the strongest on the team, he’s able to stop the run if called upon. And while he may not be the fastest linebacker on the team, he’s

TROY also fast enough to drop back into pass coverage if that’s what he’s asked to do. He also plays on the Trojans’ special teams units. Basically, on game days, he does just about everything but drive the bus to away games. “That’s my mom,” Nadolny said of his mother, Kim, who is the team bus driver. While Nadolny may not have been blessed with the same physical gifts as the rest of Troy’s linebackers, he is a consumate student of the game. That savvy on the field allowed him to get on the field last year as a sophomore — when he was 15 pounds smaller and a step slower than he is this year — on a team that featured three All-Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division linebackers. “He came in for us last year when we had some injuries and really played well,” Nolan said. “We had noticed some things in camp and were hopeful he’d be able to contribute last year, despite his size. He would always take the coaching. He would always do whatever we asked of him. He’s a smart kid — he’s taking chemistry, advanced placement history and is in the post-secondary option program (college courses) — and I think that translates well on the football field.” The ability to read plays and understand what’s going on as the action swirls

around him his something Nadolny takes great pride in. “I think I play because I know what I’m supposed to do,” he said. “I’m kind of like (strong safety Brad) Armstrong was last year — I always know what defensive alignment we are in and what I’m supposed to do. I think I can help out there. I know what my job is.” Still, many were surprised when the lanky Nadolny was able to play his way into a starting role last season and keep it through this season — including Nadolny himself. “People told me last year how surprised they were I was out there playing with the big boys,” Nadolny said. “I was surprised I got my chance last year, too. When they came to me after the Dunbar scrimmage and told me I had a chance to start on varsity, I was pretty surprised I was going to get that chance.” Nadolny said he’s doing everything he can to become one of the “big boys” he was talking about — “I eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks in between breakfast and lunch, snacks between lunch and dinner, snacks after dinner and I drink protein shakes after I work out,” he said — but until then, he said he’ll get by on his wits and football smarts. “I may not be the biggest or the fastest, but I’m big enough and fast enough to get where I’m supposed to be,” Nadolny said.

Last weekend, Steve Nolan saw an offensive line bigger than VandaliaButler’s. One problem — the Troy football coach saw it while watching the Pittsburgh Steelers play on television. “They are huge — they pretty much block out the sun,” Nolan said. “They are about the biggest line I’ve ever seen.” Which presents some mighty big problems for the Trojans tonight as Troy (4-1) and Butler (5-0) square off at Troy Memorial Stadium in a game loaded with Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division title and playoff implications. Butler’s offensive line is anchored by a pair of future Division I college players — tackle Taylor Decker (6-foot-8, 315pounds), who has committed to the University of Notre Dame, and guard Miles Eaton (6-4, 310), who has committed to Ball State. The line is rounded out by Avery Robertson (65, 250) and Ryan Gilbert (5-11, 255). Those beheomoths up front clear the way for an offense that is averaging 433.8 yards and 39.6 points per game — totals that are second in the entire GWOC. “They just get behind that offensive line and run their offense,” Nolan said. “Nobody has been able to stop them yet.” Behind that offensive line, senior Tyler Jones — in his first year as a starter at running back — has put up staggering numbers. Through five games, Jones already has rushed for 1,104 yards and 14 touchdowns, while averaging 10.3 yards per carry. “He’s a great back, obviously,” Nolan said. “He follows his blocks. He runs low to the ground. He keeps his legs churning. He does all the things you want a running back to do.” Jones will go up against a Troy defense that has been reeling against the run the past two weeks. Two weeks ago, Springboro’s thirdstring running back, Kyle Longworth, gouged the Trojans for 184 yards on the ground. Last week against Beavercreek, Zach Smith put up 109 rushing yards.

TROY There’s a danger, however, in getting too caught up in stopping Jones, Nolan said. Senior quarterback Ryne Pugh — a three-year starter for the Aviators — is every bit the threat Jones is. While Jones is on pace to rush for 2,000 yads this season, Pugh is on track to throw for 1,000 yards this year — giving Butler one of the most well-balanced offenses in the area. Through five games, Pugh has completed 38 of 60 pases for 553 yards, with eight touchdowns and just one interception. His favorite target is Mark Tindell, a senior with 18 receptions for 257 yards and six touchdowns. “If you get too caught up in trying to stop the run, their quarterback will beat you,” Nolan said. “Pugh does a great job in running their offense. They run and run and run the ball, then when you start bringing people up to stop the run, they go over the top with Pugh and beat you deep. You have to stay disciplined against them.” Defensively, the Trojans will have to worry about Decker and Eaton — the two line up on both offense and defense for the Aviators. With their height, Troy quarterback Cody May will have to worry about passes getting batted down at the line of scrimmage. “We’ve got to do a good job of staying low and staying on our blocks,” Nolan said. “If we don’t, the Decker kid will use his 11-foot wingspan to knock down passes. Having those two guys in there on defense really takes away a lot of your passing lanes, because they are so tall.” Tonight’s game marks the beginning of a threegame stretch that likely will define the Trojans’ season. After hosting unbeaten Butler tonight, Troy plays host to rival Piqua (3-2), then travels to TrotwoodMadison (5-0). Troy may need to win all three — and will certainly have to win at least two of the three — to win the GWOC North and earn a return trip to the playoffs. “This is it,” Nolan said. “We knew before the season even started we had these three games all in a row. We’ll find out what we are made of during this stretch.”

Buck Eyes An inside look at Ohio State football WHERE ARE THEY NOW?


NAME: Justin Zwick HOMETOWN: Massillon OHIO STATE YEARS: 20032006 HIGHLIGHTS: Zwick’s high point was quarterbacking Ohio State to an Alamo Bowl win in 2004 after Troy Smith was suspended. He was a highly touted recruit after throwing for 10,500 yards in high school. He started the first six games in 2004 at quarterback before Smith became the starter. AFTER OSU: Zwick is a sales representative for Smith and Nephew Orthopaedics in Columbus.

1: How many Ohio Athletic Conference football titles did Ohio State win before joining the Big Ten? 2: What year did the annual Ohio State captains breakfast begin? 3: What year did the Ohio State band first play “Hang on Sloopy” during a football game?



“He’s an exciting guy. He can make something out of nothing.”

4: What position did Michigan State

coach Mark Dantonio play when he was in college at South Carolina? 5: Who is the only Michigan State

player chosen No. 1 overall in the NFL draft? Answers: 1. Two; 2. 1934; 3. 1965; 4. Defensive back; 5. Bubba Smith, 1967

— Ohio State running back Jordan Hall talks about freshman quarterback Braxton Miller.

Bri’onte Dunn, a 2012 Ohio State verbal commitment, has kept in contact with Michigan and Penn State despite that commitment. But he has not said he is backing away from OSU. His cousin, Dymonte Thomas, a 2013 recruit as a safety, verbally committed to Michigan last week and says he will try to convince Dunn he would look good in maize and blue. Dwayne Stanford, a 2012 wide receiver recruit from Cincinnati Taft, has listed Ohio State, Alabama, LSU, Michigan and Cincinnati as his favorites. Derrick Green, a running back from Richmond (Va.) Hermitage, in the 2013 class, has offers from Ohio State, Penn State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.

Michigan State at Ohio State, 3:30 Saturday, ABC QUARTERBACKS >


Braxton Miller (two touchdown passes, 83 yards rushing) was a definite upgrade at QB for Ohio State against a weak Colorado team last Saturday. Now he has to do it against a Michigan State team looking to repeat its Big Ten co-title of 2010 and get coach Mark Dantonio’s first win against OSU. Michigan State’s Kirk Cousins has completed 68 percent of his passes for 947 yards and five touchdowns this season and is a 65-percent career passer. He is a three-year starter and one of only two three-time captains in MSU football history. Advantage: Michigan State

Freshman Devin Smith (8 catches for 183 yards) has been impressive since his first game, something some other highly touted recent receivers at OSU never accomplished. Three of his eight catches have been for touchdowns, including two against Colorado. The search is still on for a consistent second receiver, though. B.J. Cunningham has caught more passes (168) than any receiver in Michigan State history and has a reception in 38 straight games. He has 29 catches for 428 yards and a touchdown this season. Keshawn Martin (14 catches, 132 yards, no TDs) is MSU’s No. 2 option. Advantage: Michigan State

< OFFENSIVE LINE Ohio State’s 226 yards rushing against Colorado was its second straight solid performance in the running game. The line’s ability to play well despite the absence of All-Big Ten tackle Mike Adams because of a five-game suspension might be one of the overlooked stories of the season so far. Injuries have left Michigan State scrambling on its offensive line. Guards Joel Foreman and Chris McDonald have combined for 51 starts, but the other three spots have been filled by players short on experience. In their only game that wasn’t against overmatched competition, the Spartans ran for 29 yards in a 31-13 loss to Notre Dame. Advantage: Ohio State

< DEFENSIVE LINE The absence of Nathan Williams the last two games because of arthroscopic knee surgery revealed John Simon’s versatility when he was used more as a pass rusher. Williams’ injury has also meant more playing time for redshirt freshman J.T. Moore. Jerel Worthy, a three-year starter, is the leader on the line for MSU. The Spartans rank first in the country in total defense (172.5 yards per game), but playing Youngstown State, Florida Atlantic and Central Michigan could have something to do with that. They will try to put Ohio State and Miller in third-and-long situations and rely on a Dantonio favorite, the blitz. Advantage: Ohio State

LINEBACKERS Returning starter Andrew Sweat could be spending more time on the field with young linebackers. Freshman Ryan Shazier has caught on in a hurry and was in on nearly 30 plays against Colorado. His playing time could increase, as could that of another freshman, Curtis Grant. For Michigan State, linebackers Max Bullough, Denicos Allen and Chris Norman are the team’s top three tacklers and Allen has a team-high five tackles for losses. Advantage: Even

JORDAN HALL The 5-foot-9, 195-pound senior running back from Jeannette, Pa. has been an explosive weapon since returning. In two games he has 171 yards rushing and has returned two kicks for 135 yards and three punts for 44 yards.

RUNNING BACKS > Jordan Hall has shown he is much more than Terrelle Pryor’s high school teammate the last two weeks since returning from a two-game suspension. He led OSU in rushing for a second straight week against Colorado with 84 yards on 18 carries and had kickoff returns of 90 and 45 yards. Le’Veon Bell (217 yards) and Edwin Baker (216 yards) share the rushing duties for Michigan State. Baker was a first-team All-Big Ten selection last season. Bell, from Groveport Madison High School, is one of 24 Spartans who come from Ohio. Advantage: Michigan State

< DEFENSIVE BACKS This appears to be one of the deepest areas for the Buckeyes. Christian Bryant played his way into the starting lineup for the first time last week at safety and already has drawn comparisons to Jermale Hines, one of the standouts of last year’s defensive backfield. MSU’s Cousins will be their toughest challenge of the season so far, though. Isaiah Lewis, a first-year starter at safety, leads Michigan State with two interceptions, which ties him for the Big Ten lead. The other safety Trenton Robinson is in his third year as a starter and cornerback Johnny Adams has been in the lineup for two years. Advantage: Ohio State

SPECIAL TEAMS Whatever the problem was with kicker Drew Basil early in the season, he seems to have corrected it and has hit his last five field goal attempts. Jordan Hall’s kick returns add another dimension to OSU’s offense. MSU kicker Dan Conroy was almost automatic last season when he hit 14 of 15 field goal attempts. He has two misses already this season, both inside 30 yards. He is working with a new long snapper and new holder. Advantage: Even

Miller still learning on the job COLUMBUS — How much is too much? How often is too often? Freshman quarterback Braxton Miller brought some excitement to Ohio State’s offense in his first start last week against Colorado. But he also brought some fear because he ran the ball 17 times. If Miller, who missed several games in high school at Huber Heights Wayne because of injuries, runs that much every game, can he survive a whole season? Even his teammates have wondered the same thing, most notably when a tackler flipped him during a run in the first half against Colorado. “It was like a car wreck in slow motion,” offensive lineman Jack Mewhort said about watching that play. “I saw it out of the corner of my eye and was like, ‘Wow, he shouldn’t be doing that.’” What running quarterbacks should and should’t be doing is always open for debate. Even in their coaches’ minds. Earlier this week, Ohio State coach Luke Fickell said, “Obviously, we’ve got to be conscious of it. I’m not sure that’s the amount of times we’d like to have. But there are situations where he’s going to run. “What’s the perfect number? I don’t know,” he said. “Knowing when to take off, when to get down, when to go for the extra yardage, those are things you have to learn.” Judging by past Ohio State quarterbacks who could attack defenses with their feet, that lesson does come with experience. In Troy Smith’s first year as a starter in 2004, he averaged 14 rushes per game. By the next year, it was down to 12 rushes per game, and by 2006, he was running the ball an average of only six times a game. Terrelle Pryor’s fewest rushing attempts in a season came last year in his third year as a starter. That’s probably Miller’s future, too. Ohio State just needs to get him to that future in one piece.
