Clark’s Pharmacy closing Part of company-wide merger with CVS BY RON OSBURN Staff Writer Troy was a great community for Clark’s Rx Pharmacy for the six or seven years the Daytonbased company had a store on West Main Street, Clark’s owner Tim Clark said Thursday. “Troy treated us well.

Keselowski comes long way since feud CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The feud between Brad Keselowski and Denny Hamlin hit its breaking point two years ago at Dover, where an on-track altercation led to an off-track confrontation. The battle raged on for the final two months of the season, and fans quickly decided if they were “Team Denny” or “Team Brad.” Although they went tit-fortat on the track, Hamlin continually won in the court of public opinion as he railed against Keselowski’s impatience and lack of racing etiquette. That seems so long ago now.

TROY pharmacies serving Troy,” Clark said, partially explaining why he closed the Troy store this past week as part of a restructuring and partial merger with national retail pharmacy chain CVS. Clark said effective Sept. 29, he has eliminated retail pharmacy services at seven of the 10

stores in the Dayton-based, independent, family-owned pharmacy chain. Four of those stores have closed, including the Troy Clark’s Rx store, 414 W. Main St., along with stores in Kettering, Franklin and West Carrollton. Troy store closed The Thursday and all records and inventory already have been transferred to the Troy CVS, 804 W. Main St., Clark said.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans earned less in August than in July, the first decline in nearly two years. With less income, consumers could cut back on spending and weaken an already-fragile economy. Their lower pay explains why consumers increased spending at a slower pace in August. And most of the increase went to pay higher prices for food and gas. When adjusted for inflation, spending was flat. Many people tapped their savings to cover the steeper costs. The savings rate fell to its lowest level since December 2009. The decline in income offered “more evidence that households are in quite a bind,” said Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics. Consumer spending rose 0.2 percent in August, after growing 0.7 percent in July, the Commerce Department said Friday. Incomes fell 0.1 percent, which was the first decline since October 2009. The data also contributed to a rough day of Wall Street. The Dow Jones industrial average

NEW YORK (AP) — Angela Malerba, who works in public relations in Boston, carries a debit card because she likes to know when she buys something that she has enough in her account to pay for it. But paying $5 a month to use her own money? That’s too much. So when Bank of America starts charging the fee next year, Malerba figures she’ll rely more heavily on her credit card. Or, in a strategy that seems almost quaint in these swipe-and-go times, she may just carry more cash. “Paying $60 a year in debit card fees just seems absurd,” she says. The 38.7 million people who carry Bank of America debit cards will face a similar decision in the latest example of banks raising fees or establishing new ones not

Economy • Continued from 1 tumbled to close 240 points down. Broader indexes also fell. When people have less income, they spend less and that slows growth. Consumers spending accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. The economy grew just 0.9 percent in the first half of the year, the worst six-month stretch since the recession officially ended more than two years ago. Most economists have been predicting the second half of the year will be slightly better, in part because gas prices have come down since peaking this spring. Dales estimates 2.5 percent growth in the July-September quarter and 1.5 percent in the final three months of the year. Those estimates take into account the weaker income figures. Such growth may be enough to calm recession fears. But it is far from what is needed to lower the unemployment rate, which was 9.1 percent in August. And Dales cautioned that he might have to lower his estimates even further if consumers have less money to spend. “Households haven’t seen their incomes increase at all this year. That goes a long way to explain why consumption growth has been so weak,” Dales said. “Job growth is stagnant and even those people who do have a job are not in a position to spend because their incomes are not growing.”

Photographer wins hip hop award BY WILL E SANDERS Staff Writer


Lehman Catholic graduate and Piqua resident Alisha Lange has an intimate insight into the world of hip hop music gained through her accomplished, and still-budding, career as a photographer. Recently those two passions combined and culminated with a distinct award. Lange, 27, achieved an Ohio Hip-Hop Award for photography last month at a ceremony held at the COSI Science Center in Columbus, which was attended by hip hop artists and rappers, not just around the state, but a few from around the country. Much to Lange’s surprise — she was shooting the event — she suddenly learned she won the award, which she said was an amazing honor. “It was an amazing, multi-cultural event and

there were artists and people there from all over who were so supportive,” she said of the event. A 2003 graduate of Lehman Catholic High School, Lange said her position as a photographer and enthusiast of hip hop and rap music has allowed her

to combine the two things she enjoys most in life: music and photography. She said her photography has allowed her to break into the industry and she has had the opportunity in her career to meet other musicians of which she is a fan.

“I am a big fan of many of my clients,” she said, but added she never lets it get in the way of her job. And meeting hip hop artists at the venues she attends and shoots has allowed her to not only network with others, but also to meet and obtain additional clientele, she said. “I love the interacting with the crowds (at hip hop shows),” Lange said. “It also helps with meeting potential clients.” Lange said she developed an interest in photography when she was about 11 years of age and traveled to India. Ever since, she has never been too far away from a camera. Her photography business she operates is called Alisha Lange Photography, and for more information, visit her website at www. alishalangephotography. com.

not apply if the card is used only to access ATMs. It will not apply for premium customers, who keep high balances. Debit fees hit particularly hard because banks have spent the past decade encouraging their customers to go for the ease of the cards, which deduct purchases immediately from a checking or savings account. In 1995, debit cards accounted for only 1 percent of the transactions when people pulled a card out of their wallet to pay for something. Credit cards made up the rest.

Debit cards grew steadily, hitting 50 percent in 2006. Today, there are more than 530 million of them in use in the U.S. Two out of every three times someone reaches for plastic, it’s debit, according to the Nilson Report, which tracks the card industry. Credit cards still make up 56 percent of the money spent, according to the report. So when people use debit, it’s for the forgettable, smaller transactions of everyday life a pack of gum or a cup of coffee. Banks have cashed in big. They collect about $19 billion a year from swipe

fees, the pennies they collect from a store every time you run your card through a magnetic reader at the checkout counter. Today, that revenue will be cut almost in half. Federal rules will cap the amount banks can charge merchants at about 24 cents per transaction, down from an average of 44 cents. It’s the latest regulation imposed on banks. Last year, strict rules on credit cards limited when they could raise interest rates and virtually eliminated customer fees for going over credit limits.

merge, and the change means the company will deemphasize but not eliminate the retail end. He said the economy is “difficult” for small, independent businesses. “We’re repositioning to make the company stronger,” said Clark, 44, who is the third generation in the family-owned company, begun in 1939.

Company workers and customers were notified of the changes in letters dated Sept. 22 and 23, respectively. “This is a great opportunity. This will allow us to take the time with our clients, and offer some of the services other pharmacies (in the area) don’t,” Clark said. “We’ll still be providing com-

pounding and medical equipment. We hope people will still consider us for their pharmacy needs,” he said. The Troy store had “less than 10” employees who have either transferred to other stores or been interviewed with CVS, Clark said. In fact, all but two Clark’s employees affected by the merger were offered employment by CVS, Clark said, adding that he offered “small severance packages to those not hired by CVS.” Clark said he owns the Troy building and currently is in negotiations with a local business, which he declined to name, that is interested in expanding into that location.


Alisha Lange, 27, a 2003 Lehman Catholic graduate, was the recent recipient of a photography award at the Ohio Hip Hop Awards, which were held last month in Columbus.

Debit • Continued from 1 just for debit cards but for visiting ATMs or talking to a teller. Bank of America’s announcement follows tests by Wells Fargo and Chase for $3 monthly fees for debit cards in some markets. Other banks have begun charging for basic checking. Banks have sharply restricted their rewards programs for debit cards. Bank of America said the fee will apply only when customers use their debit cards for purchases in a certain month. The fee will

Choosing a facile and illusory public relations boost over the hard work of brokering a long-term peace deal, Mahmoud Abbas has gone through with his threat to seek recognition of Palestinian statehood at the United Nations. While the world body mulls the application, the Palestinian president must face the reality that the only path to full recognition for his people is to engage Israel in direct negotiations without preconditions. No more stalling. No more empty gambits. Come to the table now. If peace is what Abbas seeks, there are borders to decide upon, with sensitivity to Israel’s demographic changes and its vulnerability to attack in a hostile neighborhood. There’s the so-called right of return of Palestinian refugees to wrestle with. There’s the status of Jerusalem, which is and should remain Israel’s capital. There’s Israel’s existence as a Jewish state to be affirmed. Without the two parties coming to terms on these central, vexing questions, there can be no Palestinian state. If it’s peace and not eternal conflict that Palestinian leaders truly want, they must re-engage in talks. They will find in Israel a willing partner.

Four phrases I can’t believe I ever said Throughout my life, I’ve uttered my fair share of odd phrases. From things like “I’m a pretty little boy” (don’t ask, that arose from an incredibly long drinking game) to “your mom is a bearded lumberjack,” (my college roommate and I were weird), I pretty much assumed that I had been there, said that. Boy, oh boy, was I wrong. Between growing up (in the last five years), getting married and having a child, I am astounded at some of the sentences I’ve actually uttered. “I want to go home.” When I was in college, I dreamed about the day I could move out into my own apartment in Cleveland and have fabulous “Sex and the City” type nights with my best friends. And then, I did. I graduated from college, moved into a small apartment with my boyfriend, went out for overpriced drinks on Friday nights with my friends and got a big girl job. I was living the dream – my dream to be exact. And then something happened. On Christmas Eve of 2007, my

Amanda Stewart Troy Daily News Columnist nephew Eli was born and I was in love. Three months later, I gave up my cool-girl lifestyle and somehow convinced an amazing man to uproot his life and move four hours away with me, to Kettering. Something clicked in me and I realized that being near my family was more important than going out for drinks. For the first time in my five years in Cleveland, I wanted to go home — so I did. “It’s made from ground up horse hooves and animal bone cartilage.” It may be hard to believe for anyone who’s only known me for the last four years of my life, but

— Ruth Bair Troy Salvation Army Thrift Store manager

I wasn’t always the outspoken, slightly annoying vegan you’ve come to love. In fact, I spent the duration of my college years as a meat-eating, dairy drinking, jelloshot-taking student. And then I met my husband and he opened up an entirely new world for me. He didn’t push me or “brainwash” me into it like everyone might think, but rather, when I asked questions he gave me the honest answers. I wasn’t afraid to ask questions and he wasn’t afraid to give me the brutal truth. Mainly, that gelatin contained ground up horse hooves and animal bone cartilage. So while the 21-year-old Amanda might not believe it, the 22, 23, 24, 25 and 26-year-old one said it. “I’m a vegan.” “I want a tree. A Douglas fir. On my neck.” It was our honeymoon and we wanted to do something special. It was the summer of 2009 and my husband and I were in Portland, Oregon, basically the vegan mecca of the United States. We wanted to do something special to commemorate our time on the West Coast and we each had 10 tattoos.

So naturally, we got our 11th, together, in Portland, of what else – the state tree of Oregon – the Douglas fir. “Please stop eating the dog’s hair.” When I became a mom, I knew it could be a dirty job. I knew my days would be filled with talk of bodily excrement and other notso-nice fluids, but I didn’t realize it would also entail deterring my child from putting anything – and everything – into her mouth. From a ‘Chaka’ figurine from the “Land of the Lost” to the seat on her training potty, my daughter has made it perfectly apparent that she has no desire to listen to her mom — or to stop putting things in her mouth. So the other day amidst a tantrum, she proceeded to pull a clump of the dog’s fur out (which she was disciplined for, but simply laughed at us) and shoved it in her mouth. Do you think I’ll be the first mom to utter “my 17-month-old is suffering from hairballs” to the doctor?

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — As a young white minister, Michael Catt said he was fired from a Mississippi church for quoting Martin Luther King Jr. He never forgot it. “Getting fired … was really a pivotal, defining moment for me,” he said. Now 58, he’s pastor of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Ga., and among a few churches taking steps to create and maintain multiethnic congregations more than half a century after King gave his poignant sermon about the divisiveness among so-called Christians. In 1956, King wrote a sermon titled “Paul’s Letter to American Christians,” in which he spoke as if the Apostle Paul were delivering a message to the modern-day church. King said: “You must face the tragic fact that when you stand at 11 o’clock on Sunday morning … you stand in the most segregated hour of Christian America.” There are currently between 300,000 and 350,000 congregations in the U.S., according to Michael Emerson, a sociology professor and co-director of Rice University’s Kinder Institute for Urban Research in Houston, Texas. Ninety-two percent are homogeneous, meaning at least 80 percent of the congregation is comprised of a single racial group. When Catt became pastor of Sherwood Baptist in

1989, he noticed his predominantly white congregation was a stark contrast to the small city of Albany, whose population is about 65 percent black. “You can’t pastor a church in a community that’s predominantly African American and look out on a lily white crowd, because you’re not being honest,” Catt recently told The Associated Press. He began by diversifying the church’s leadership. He ordained its first black elder, and would later appoint a black senior associate pastor. But it was a tragic flood in Albany in 1994 that eroded racial barriers even more and created a sense of unity that still exists today. Catt and his congregation reached out to the predominantly black Mt. Zion Baptist Church, which had been damaged by the flood. There Catt met Senior Pastor Daniel Simmons, who is black, and the two forged a friendship that spawned a novel idea: pulpit swapping. Now, the two regularly preach at each other’s church and their congregations come together for those occasions. Catt, Simmons and their mixed congregation are featured in a new movie “Courageous,” produced by Sherwood Baptist. The church was also behind the successful movie “Fireproof,” which grossed $33.4 million at the box office.


“spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile — or restricted in their movement — as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with

poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the sufferer. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness and allowing tissues to heal. Chiropractic adjustment rarely causes disHowever, comfort. patients may sometimes

experience mild soreness or aching following treatment (as with some forms of exercise) that usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours. In many cases, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. When other medical conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition. Doctors of chiropractic may assess patients through clinical examination, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging and other diagnostic interventions to determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate or when it is not appropriate. Chiropractors will readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient’s condition, or the condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of the health care team.

Tips for patient’s first visit You’ve decided to visit a chiropractor, but you’re not quite sure what to expect on your first visit. The American Chiropractic Association offers the following information to help you feel at ease during your first chiropractic appointment. During the first visit, the doctor of chiropractic — commonly referred to as a chiropractor — will complete a thorough examination that typically includes: • Patient history. • Physical examination • Diagnostic studies (when indicated). • Diagnosis. • Chiropractic treatment plan. Prior to your initial consultation, you will be asked to fill out forms that provide background information about your symptoms and condition. Questions may include: • When did your pain/condition start? • Where is the pain located? • Did pain/condition immediately follow an injury or accident? • Is anything improves or worsens the pain? • What treatments have you already tried, and how successful were they? You may also be asked to provide family medical history, any pre-existing medical conditions or prior injuries, and previous and current health providers

The American Chiropractic Association, based in Arlington, Va., is the largest professional association in the world representing doctors of chiropractic. The ACA provides lobbying, public relations, professional and educational opportunities for doctors of chiropractic, funds research regarding chiropractic and health issues, and offers leadership for the advancement of the profession. With approximately 16,000 members, the ACA promotes the highest standards of ethics and patient care, contributing to the health and well-being of millions of chiropractic patients.

As evidence supporting the effectiveness of chiropractic continues to emerge, consumers are turning in large numbers to chiropractic care — a non-surgical, drug-free treatment option. The American Chiropractic Association offers some interesting facts on this increasingly popular form of health care: • Chiropractic is the largest, most regulated, and best recognized of the complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) professions. It is the third largest doctoral-level health care profession after medicine and dentistry. (Meeker, Haldeman; 2002; Annals of Internal Medicine) • There are more than 60,000 active chiropractic licenses in the United States. All 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands officially recognize chiropractic as a health care profession. • In 2002, approximately 7.4 percent of the population used chiropractic care — a higher percentage than yoga, massage, acupuncture or other diet-based therapies. (Tindle HA, Davis RB, Phillips RS, Eisenberg DM. Trends in use of complementary and alternative medicine by U.S. adults: 1997-2002. Altern Ther Health Med. 2005 Jan-Feb;11 (1):42-9.) • Doctors of chiropractic undergo at least four years of professional study. The Council on Chiropractic Education, an agency certified by the Department of Education, currently recognizes 15 chiropractic programs at 18 different locations. In addition, Doctors of chiropractic must pass national board examinations and become state-licensed prior to practicing. • Doctors of chiropractic provide care in hospitals and other multidisciplinary health care facilities. A few notable examples of chiropractic integration into today’s health care system include the chiropractic department at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., and the care provided to veterans, activeduty military personnel, and Medicare patients. Who is the typical doctor of chiropractic? Nearly 82 percent of all doctors of chiropractic are in full-time practice, with the average chiropractor working 40-45 hours per week. The majority (61 percent) of chiropractors work in an office in which they are the only doctor. Nearly one-third (31 percent) share an office with one or more chiropractors. The remaining doctors work in a multi disciplinary setting, work in academia, or conduct research. According to data from 2003, 82 percent of chiropractic practitioners are male. Some data provided by the 2005 Job Analysis of Chiropractic, which is published by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners,

The next step is a physical examination your chiropractor will perform to evaluate your condition and develop a working diagnosis. In addition to general physical examination procedures such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration and temperature, the examination will include specific orthopedic and neurological tests to assess: • Range of motion of the affected area that is observed while you walk, turn, bend or lift. • Muscle tone. • Muscle strength. • Neurological integrity. • Posture. Diagnostic studies help diagnose conditions more accurately. The most common used by chiropractors include: • X-ray. • MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), CT, or bone scan. • Laboratory tests.

It’s time for you and your siblings to step up and help Dear Annie: Our mother has Alzheimer's disease, and we don't think Dad is taking proper care of her. Mom seems undernourished. Dad thinks a slice of toast or a cup of coffee constitutes adequate caloric intake for her. If she says "no" to food, he simply accepts that response without trying to encourage her to eat. Her clothes are now several sizes too big. Mom has emotional outbursts and periods of uncontrollable crying, and she frequently screams out, thus making a good night's sleep impossible for either of them. It is difficult for her to walk more than 15 feet. Dad doesn't assist her consistently, and she has fallen numerous times. Personal hygiene seems a thing of the past. Their home, which once sparkled, is now dirty and disorganized. We have offered to clean, do household chores, etc., but our offers fall on deaf ears. We gave Dad the name of a local specialist, but he refuses to call. We contacted their family doctor, who said he was unable to convince Dad that Mom needs to go into assisted living. Dad seems to relish being the martyr and constantly complains about having to do everything. We understand that after 50-plus years of marriage, this must be extremely difficult for him. My siblings, our spouses and the grandchildren do not know what to do next. — Caring Kids in California Dear Caring: It can be traumatizing for one spouse to place another in a facility of any kind, and a certain paralysis can set in, preventing major decisions and changes. You and your siblings need to step up to the plate right now. Call the Eldercare Locator ( at 1-800-6771116 and ask for assistance. If you can afford it, also try the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers ( Dear Annie: A group of us plays Mexican train dominoes every Monday at the senior center in our town. In the past few months, we have come to realize that one woman is cheating. It's not a question of money, but rather one of fairness. Each person puts in a dollar, and whoever has the lowest score gets the pot. It ranges from $4 to $6, depending on how many people play. How should we approach this? — Aggravated Domino Player Dear Player: If you know how she is cheating, you should call it to her attention at the time. ("Doris, if you've had that domino in your hand all this time, why didn't you play it earlier?") Otherwise, your choices are to play a different game or find another group. Dear Annie: I would like to offer an alternative to "Social Dud," who is uncomfortable inviting people over. She should be honest and maybe say something like, "I really enjoy coming to your home, but it's difficult for me to have you over. How about if I take you out for coffee sometime?" My husband and I have a modest country home, but people always seem to enjoy themselves when they are here. However, we have friends who, for a variety of reasons, never reciprocate — they're too poor, too shy or chronically ill, their homes are too small or messy. We either know these things, or they have politely told us. It doesn't matter. All of our friends are welcome in our home, including those who can't reciprocate. Hosting a party or a dinner is not about our expectations of reciprocation. It is about fellowship. We love our guests. — Happy To Host Dear Happy: And we're certain your guests are quite fond of you. Thanks for reiterating that most people appreciate the company and are not looking to critique one's home or meal.

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:


A fitting salesperson is helpful when trying on clothes Dear Heloise: When I shop, I really appreciate a salesperson checking on me in the fitting room, I try on something and wish I had a size smaller or larger in the same article. It’s a hassle to get dressed and go out on the floor to look on my own. Their going and checking for me is a very helpful service. In fact, this is one thing I miss when I shop in the discount stores that have no salespeople. — JoAnne in Tupelo, Miss. Thanks for weighing in on the salespeople subject. It is nice when they are helpful, especially when trying on clothes! Be sure to say “thank you” when one is especially helpful or nice. —

Hints from Heloise Columnist Heloise PET PAL Dear Readers: An email reader sent in a photo of her min-pin, Terry, playing with his favorite rubber hot dog. He runs around the house with it, and the chase is on. To see Terry and his “dog,” visit and click on “Pets.” — Heloise

CAT GROOMING Dear Heloise: I read in The Washington Post your column about grooming pets. Cats also benefit from weekly grooming sessions. My husband and I have a house full of cats, and we have weekly grooming sessions for them. We use a variety of grooming tools, including a shed blade designed for dogs. Grooming allows you to discover abnormalities that may need veterinarian attention, and provides bonding time. It also helps improve their coats, circulation and overall general well-being. Grooming can include claw trimming, checking ears for

mites, and looking for fleas, ticks and scratches. If you have kittens, you can get them used to this routine quickly. If you have older cats, they will get used to the routine — and sometimes demand it. Grooming also helps minimize animal-hair buildup in your home. — C.M. Williams, Las Vegas, N.M. “Woof, woof” and “meow.” Cabbie, our miniature schnauzer, agrees. I try to brush her several times a week. The best time is when she’s napping and just seems to go with the flow. We both get bonding time, and it seems to help relax me, too! — Heloise











HOROSCOPE Saturday, Oct. 1, 2011 Regardless of how much you enjoy having partners, you’re likely to do better in independent operations in the year ahead than you will as part of a team. Make sure you move in circles where you can be free to make your own decisions. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Some extra good news is trying to get through to you, so be sure to listen to all suggestions as well as check your mailbox and email. Return all phone calls. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Should you find yourself instinctively sensing when something is a good investment and when it is not, follow these hunches. A speculative urge could pay off rather handsomely. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — The enthusiasm you show for every activity makes others interested in copying you. You won’t have to encourage them to do so, just simply do your thing and the rest will follow. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If there is something you really want that another can help you get, enthusiastically talk about it to your potential benefactor. Chances are that he or she will come through for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Be sure to acknowledge everyone wherever you go, because good things come from being friendly. You never know exactly what might happen. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Something having to do with your work or career, which might seem rather insignificant at first glance, could look entirely different to you as time passes. Take that second look. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Your good mood has you looking for the bright side in everything you encounter. Any adverse condition that tries to darken your doorway won’t lurk there very long. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Those very same people you’ve gone out of your way to help in the past will do what they can to look out for you. It may be the first chance they’ve gotten to balance the books. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Most everyone with whom you share your day will find you a fun person to be around, making you more popular than usual. A word of warning, however: Don’t play favorites. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — This is likely to be one of your better days in terms of your work or career. However, even though good things are in the offing, you must recognize them in order to take advantage. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Your wit, warmth and charm are likely to be far more prevalent than usual, making you an in-demand personage. Those who meet you for the first time will want to chum it up with you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Betterthan-usual developments could be in the making for two reasons: one, because of your able efficiency in all matters, and, two, Lady Luck is helping you get what you want.

TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Saturday, Oct. 1, the 274th day of 2011. There are 91 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight: On Oct. 1, 1961, Roger Maris of the New York Yankees hit his 61st home run during a 162game season, compared to Babe Ruth’s 60 home runs during a 154-game season. (Tracy Stallard of the Boston Red Sox gave up the round-tripper the Yankees won 1-0.) On this date: In 1908, Henry Ford intro-

duced his Model T automobile to the market. In 1940, the first section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, 160 miles in length, was opened to the public. In 1949, Mao Zedong proclaimed the People’s Republic of China during a ceremony in Beijing. In 1971, Walt Disney World opened near Orlando, Fla. In 1986, former President Jimmy Carter’s presidential library and museum were dedi-

cated in Atlanta with help from President Ronald Reagan. In 1987, eight people were killed when an earthquake measuring magnitude 5.9 struck the Los Angeles area. Ten years ago: New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, in an impassioned speech to the United Nations, said there was no room for “neutrality” in the global fight against terrorism. The Supreme Court suspended former President Bill Clinton from practicing before the high court.

With al-Awlaki dead, al-Qaida lacks Western voice SANAA, Yemen (AP) — The killings of U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and another American al-Qaida propagandist in a U.S. airstrike Friday wipe out the decisive factor that made the terrorist group’s Yemen branch the most dangerous threat to the United States: its reach into the West. Issuing English-language sermons on jihad on the Internet from his hideouts in Yemen’s mountains, al-Awlaki drew Muslim recruits like the young Nigerian who tried to bring down a U.S. jet on Christmas and the Pakistani-American behind the botched car bombing in New York City’s Times Square. Friday’s drone attack was believed to be the first instance in which a U.S. citizen was tracked and killed based on secret intelligence and the presi-

dent’s say-so. Al-Awlaki was placed on the CIA “kill or capture” list by the Obama administration in April 2010 the first American to be so targeted. The other American killed in the strike, Samir Khan, published a slick English-language Web magazine, “Inspire,” that spouted al-Qaida’s anti-Western ideology and even offered how-to articles on terrorism including one titled, “Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom.” Their voices elevated the several hundred al-Qaida fighters hiding out in Yemen into a greater threat than similar affiliates of the terror network in North Africa, Somalia or east Asia. President Barack Obama heralded the strike as a “major blow to al-Qaida’s most active operational affiliate,” saying the 40-

year-old al-Awlaki was the group’s “leader of external operations.” “In that role, he took the lead in planning and directing efforts to murder innocent Americans,” told reporters in Obama Washington, saying al-Awlaki plotted the Christmas 2009 airplane bombing attempt and a foiled attempt in 2010 to mail explosives to the United States. Al-Awlaki’s death was the biggest success in the Obama administration’s intensified campaign to take out al-Qaida’s leadership since the May killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. The pursuit of al-Awlaki and Friday’s strike were directed by the same U.S. special unit that directed the Navy SEALs raid on bin Laden’s hideout. After three weeks of tracking

the targets, U.S. armed drones and fighter jets shadowed alAwlaki’s convoy, before drones launched the lethal strike early Friday, U.S. officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss matters of intelligence. Al-Awlaki and his comrades were moving through a desert region east of Yemen’s capital near the village of Khasaf between mountain strongholds in the provinces of Jawf and Marib when the drone struck, U.S. and Yemeni officials said. A tribal chief in the area told The Associated Press that the brother of one of those killed witnessed the strike. The brother, who had sheltered the group in his home nearby, said the group had stopped for breakfast in the desert and were sitting on the ground eating when they

saw the drone approaching. They rushed to their truck to drive off when the missiles hit, incinerating the vehicle, according to the tribal chief, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he did not want to be associated with the incident. U.S. officials said two other militants were killed in the strike. But the tribal chief, who helped bury the bodies in a Jawf cemetery, said seven people were killed, including al-Awlaki, Khan, two midlevel Yemeni al-Qaida members, two Saudis and another Yemeni. The differing numbers could not immediately be reconciled. Al-Awlaki, who was born in New Mexico to Yemeni parents, had been in the U.S. cross-hairs since his killing was approved by Obama last year.

Killing Americans: On uncharted ground in attack WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama steered the nation’s war machine into uncharted territory Friday when a U.S. drone attacked a convoy in Yemen and killed two American citizens who had become central figures in al-Qaida. It was believed to be the first instance in which a U.S. citizen was tracked and executed based on secret intelligence and the president’s say-so. And it raised major questions about the limitations of

presidential power. Anwar al-Awlaki, the target of the U.S. drone attack, was one of the bestknown al-Qaida figures after Osama bin Laden. American intelligence officials had linked him to two nearly catastrophic attacks on U.S.-bound planes, an airliner on Christmas 2009 and cargo planes last year. The second American killed in the drone attack, Samir Kahn, was the editor of Inspire, a slick online magazine aimed at al-Qaida sympathizers in the West. “Al-Qaida and its affiliates will find no safe haven anywhere in the world,” Obama said in announcing al-Awlaki’s death. “Working with Yemen and our

other allies and partners, we will be determined, we will be deliberate, we will be relentless, we will be resolute in our commitment to destroy terrorist networks that aim to kill Americans.” Republicans and Democrats alike applauded the decision to launch the fatal assault on the convoy in Yemen. “It’s something we had to do,” said Rep.

The order made no distinction between foreigners and U.S. citizens. If they posed a “continuing and imminent threat” to the United States, they were eligible to be killed, former intelligence officials said.

Intelligence Committee. “It’s legitimate and we’re taking out someone who has attempted to attack us on numerous occasions. And he was on that list.” That list is the roster of people the White House has authorized the CIA and Pentagon to kill or capture as terrorists. The evidence against them almost always is classified. Targets never know for sure they are on the list, though some surely wouldn’t be surprised. The list has included dozens of names, from little-known mid-level figures in the wilds of Pakistan to bin Laden, who was killed in his compound in a comfortable Pakistani suburb.

Johnson thinks title in reach

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — NASCAR has suspended a crew member for a Trucks Series team for violating its substance abuse policy. Michael McLaughlin, a licensed crew member for the No. 23 team in the Truck Series, has been indefinitely suspended from NASCAR for violating the sanctioning body’s substance abuse policy.

SPARTA, Ky. (AP) — Austin and Ty Dillon had to be separated by their mother the first time they raced against each other at Kentucky Speedway. Running in the middle of the pack in Bandolero cars, Ty spun his older brother and the contact almost led to fisticuffs. They didn’t speak the entire trip home. They’re back this weekend for their first showdown at NASCAR’s national level. Ty will make his debut in the Trucks Series, which Austin leads by twopoints heading into Saturday night’s race. The grandsons of NASCAR team owner Richard Childress said their grandfather and both parents will be on hand to watch as they take the next step toward reaching their goal of duplicating the success of brothers Kurt and Kyle Busch.

Dover, Del. Dover International Speedway


NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski, right, and Dale Earnhardt Jr., are seen before qualifying for the Sylvania 300 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race Friday, Sept. 23 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, N.H.

A long, strange trip Keselowski comes long way since Hamlin feud CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The feud between Brad Keselowski and Denny Hamlin hit its breaking point two years ago at Dover, where an ontrack altercation led to an off-track confrontation. The battle raged on for the final two months of the season, and fans quickly decided if they were “Team Denny” or “Team Brad.” Although they went tit-for-tat on the track, Hamlin continually won in the court of public opinion as he railed against Keselowski’s impatience and lack of racing etiquette. That seems so long ago now. Keselowski returns to Dover this weekend as a bona fide title contender. He opened the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship with consecutive top-five finishes to vault from 11th in the standings to third. Going into Round 3 of the Chase, he trails leader Tony Stewart by 11 points. So what’s changed? “The way he drives,” Hamlin said. “You can ask him and tell him I said so. I think he drives 100 percent better than what he used to. He used to have the all-out speed, but he was very anxious in traffic, and he’s not like that now. I think he’s matured 100 percent, and he’s showing his talent now.” Hamlin always thought Keselowski was talented. Everybody did, including Dale Earnhardt Jr.,

who gave Keselowski the flagship No. 88 at JR Motorsports midway through the 2007 season. The next year, his first full season in NASCAR, Keselowski won two races and finished third in the Nationwide Series standings. Then came 2009, a breakout of sorts of Keselowski. Contact with Carl Edwards on the final lap at Talladega nearly sent Edwards’ car into the grandstands, and Keselowski sailed by for a stunning first Sprint Cup Series win. He racked up four Nationwide wins driving for Earnhardt, and had a development deal with Hendrick Motorsports. But there’s never any open seats with NASCAR’s top Cup team, and Keselowski wanted to get to the top level. Unsure of what his future held, and anxious to get to Cup, Keselowski developed an aggressive and unapologetic reputation that rubbed some veteran drivers the wrong way. “I think he was showing his talent in a different way in 2009, in a defiant way in that he had to go prove he was good,” Hamlin said. “I think people got over that, and he realized he didn’t need to do that to be successful. Now I think … he’s more relaxed, even though he’s probably more confident in himself than ever.” But it wasn’t easy for Keselowski. Penske Racing offered him a Sprint Cup ride, and Keselowski had

a decision to make. Sit around waiting for the day something might open at Hendrick, or move to a high-end organization that, despite its resources, has never won a title at NASCAR’s top level. He jumped at the challenge, and all parties involved have been better off since. Keselowski got Penske to put more emphasis on the Nationwide program and rewarded the organization with six victories and last year’s championship. That softened the blow of how badly he struggled at the Cup level just two top-10 finishes all year and a 25th-place finish in the final points standings. He asked at the end of the year for Nationwide crew chief Paul Wolfe to be moved up to his Cup team, and Penske obliged. It took until May for the No. 2 team to see any results, but once they turned the corner, it’s been a mad dash to the front. Strangely, Keselowski’s turnaround really heated up after he broke his ankle testing his Dodge in August. He won at Pocono four days after the accident, and followed it with a second-place finish at Watkins Glen, a third at Michigan and then a win at Bristol. He’s had just one finish outside the top-10 since the accident a 12th at Richmond. His climb from 25th in the standings after Charlotte has been nothing short of remarkable.

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Go ahead. Count out Jimmie Johnson. After all, he’s had an atypical-Johnson season. His wins have dried up, his spot in the Sprint Cup standings is worthy of a double-take, and a run of dominance that staked his claim as one of NASCAR’s all-time great champions has vanished. The V stands for vulnerable more than victories this season when it comes to the No. 48. No championship run lasts forever, and one year it will be Johnson’s time to surrender his five-year run atop the Cup standings. Just don’t be so sure it’ll be this season. Tony Stewart has stolen the spotlight and grabbed the points lead with wins in the first two Chase races. Brad Keselowski has gone from wild-card to championship contender. Kevin Harvick is always a threat. Johnson is still in the mix for six straight championships and can start to make a serious move in the standings at one his favorite tracks, Dover International Speedway. He’s tamed the Monster Mile like few other drivers in the sport ever have. He has six career victories on the concrete track and won the race here last September. Johnson has a sparkling 9.6 average finish in 19 career Cup starts at Dover. The rush to finally anoint a new champ might stall if Johnson can capture another checkered flag on Sunday. “I don’t think we’re looking for the walk-off home run by any means right now,” Johnson said. “It’s just finishing where we should.” Johnson hasn’t finished where he expected to place in the first two Chase races, one reason why he’s lurking in 10th place and 29 points behind Stewart. That gap is far from insurmountable even with the revamped system for a driver like Johnson and his Hendrick Motorsports team. Johnson spent Friday taking questions about “sense of urgency” and “pressure,” terms and feelings he hasn’t had experienced much of this early in the Chase since he won his first championship in 2006.

Kenseth got ‘sick feeling’ when he saw wife’s crash CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Matt Kenseth looked down the track, fear sweeping over him. His wife had crashed while practicing for a charity race that was supposed to be little more than an easy ride. “I had a really sick feeling in my gut she was hurt really bad,” Kenseth said Tuesday at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Katie Kenseth broke her shoulder blade when she wrecked the Bandolero car she was

driving Monday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The 2003 NASCAR champion was at the track coaching his wife. He sprinted down pit road to help her. He said he had looked away briefly and missed how the accident began. By the time he spotted her on the track, the car was headed right into the wall. He said Katie braked at the last second, causing the car to spin and back into the wall. “She was aimed head-

on into the wall going really fast and it was going to be really, really bad,” Kenseth said. “When she crashed I was over 90 percent sure she was hurt because I’ve never seen a little car crash that hard. So I was really thankful that car spun around.” Charlotte news station WCNC posted several photos on its website of Kenseth aiding his wife, including one in which he appears to be taking off her helmet as she sits

inside the cockpit. “Her neck and everything was fine. … I knew her arm was hurt,” Kenseth said. “If I didn’t (take her helmet off), nobody else was going to and I needed to help her out of there. I knew that.” The accident happened during the first of two scheduled practice sessions this week. Katie Kenseth was one of 14 wives and girlfriends committed to racing in the 25-lap “Better Half Dash” charity race before

the Oct. 15 Sprint Cup Series race at Charlotte. He said he spoke with his wife about the event for three weeks leading to Monday night’s practice, and was “naive” to have believed the Bandolero cars were going to be “slowed up for all the girls.” Bandoleros resemble full-bodied go-carts. He said when he got to the track Monday night and saw the cars, he knew immediately they were bigger and faster than he expected.

Bucc ‘D’ blanks Vikings, 19-0 BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor With Covington’s tripleoption offense stealing most of the attention this season, the Buccaneer defense did what it does best. Steal the football. Covington (6-0, 5-0 Cross County Conference) forced Miami East into long-yardage situations, forced the Vikings to do things they’re not so comfortable doing — and forced them into four interceptions — pitching a 19-0 shutout to spoil Miami

CASSTOWN East’s homecoming Friday night in Casstown. “I was not expecting that,” Covington coach Dave Miller said of the shutout. “I couldn’t be more proud of the kids. Defensive coordinator Gregg Carnes and his coaches did a nice job prepping the kids during the week, and the kids did a great job. We made some mistakes offensively, but we never got down on ourselves — and our defense was always there to bail

Accept no substitutes Real Trojans show up in 49-15 Butler beatdown BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor After six weeks, the real Troy Trojans finally showed up Friday night at Troy Memorial Stadium.


Keselowski has grown since feud The feud between Brad Keselowski and Denny Hamlin hit its breaking point two years ago at Dover, where an on-track altercation led to an off-track confrontation. The battle raged on for the final two months of the season, and fans quickly decided if they were “Team Denny” or “Team Brad.” Although they went tit-for-tat on the track, Hamlin continually won in the court of public opinion as he railed against Keselowski’s impatience and lack of racing etiquette.

Be sure to catch Sunday’s Troy Daily News for more on the Troy-Butler game, as well as full box scores from all of Friday night’s action. Five weeks of sloppy efforts were largely washed away on a cold and wet homecoming night, as the Troy football team did what many had expected it to do all season — put together a dominant effort, crushing previously unbeaten Vandalia-Butler 49-15. With the win, Troy improved to 5-1 (1-0 in the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division), while Butler fell to 5-1 (0-1 in the GWOC North). Troy

headed an attack by the defensive line that saw the Trojans overmatch a Butler offensive line that outweighed the Trojans by several hundred pounds and featured a pair of future Division I college players. “I think (Friday) we really came together as a team. Their offensive line was bigger than us — but we were more aggressive.” From offense to defense to special teams, it was — by far — the Trojans’ most complete effort of the season. “It really was our best effort,” Troy coach Steve Nolan said. “It was a great effort defensively. We really bottled them up.” Troy got on the board first thanks to a special teams miscue by the Aviators. Midway through the first quarter, Troy’s defense pinned Butler’s previously unstoppable offense deep in its own territory and forced a punt. The snap sailed over punter Ryne Pugh’s head and he fell on it at the Butler 6 yard line, where the Trojans took over. After a false start by Troy, halfback Isaiah Williams scored on an 11-yard run — the first of his three touchdowns — to put the Trojans up 7-0. Unofficially, Williams finished with seven carries for 99 yards and touchdown runs of 11, 3 and 10 yards. “We stepped up in a big game Troy’s Isaiah Williams scored three touchdowns in the Trojans’ 49and worked as a team,” Williams 15 win Friday night. said. “We had some kids who hosts rival Piqua (3-3, 0-1) this son, I think we were a bunch of maybe hadn’t done as much individuals,” said Troy defensive coming Friday. ■ See TROJANS on 20 “At the beginning of the sea- lineman Alec Sears, who spear-

Red Sox decline to pick up option on Francona BOSTON (AP) — The Terry Francona era is over in Boston. In a joint statement released on Friday, the Red Sox announced they will not pick up the option on Francona’s contract in the wake of the team’s September collapse. Owners John Henry, Tom Werner, and Larry Lucchino acknowledged a change was needed, and thanked Francona, who led the franchise to two world titles. But the statement also mentioned that Francona was also ready to head in a different direc-

tion. “Tito said that after eight years here he was frustrated by his difficulty making an impact with the players, that a different voice was needed, and that it was time for him to move on,” the statement said. “After taking time to reflect on Tito’s sentiments, we agreed that it was best for the Red Sox not to exercise the option years on his contract.” The press release ended a whirlwind day at Fenway Park that saw all of the principle parties shuttle in and out of the facility sev-

eral times. Francona was in the building three different times. Boston missed the playoffs despite leading the AL wild-card race by nine games on Sept. 4. It went 618 after that, ending with a 4-3 loss Wednesday in Baltimore. The Red Sox did not win consecutive games all month. “We have enormous respect, admiration and appreciation for Tito and the job that he did for eight years, including two World Series championship seasons and five playoff appearances,” the state-

ment read. “His poise during the 2004 postseason was a key factor in the greatest comeback in baseball history, and his place in Red Sox history will never be forgotten. “We wish him only the best going forward.” General manager Theo Epstein released a statement earlier in the day, saying the club had not yet made a decision on Francona’s future. But he later revised his thoughts. “Nobody at the Red Sox blames Tito for what happened at the end of this season; we own that as an

■ College Football

organization. This year was certainly a difficult and draining one for him and for us,” Epstein said. “Ultimately, he decided that there were certain things that needed to be done that he couldn’t do after eight years here, and that this team would benefit from hearing a new voice. “While this may be true, his next team will benefit more than it knows from hearing Tito’s voice. I will miss seeing Tito every day in the manager’s office, and I wish him and his family nothing but the best in

their next chapter.” The Red Sox failed to make the postseason in Francona’s final two seasons. “We met this morning to look back on the 2011 season and to consider the future of the Boston Red Sox, including my involvement with the club. I passed along my frustrations at my inability to effectively reach the players. After many conversations and much consideration, I ultimately felt that, out of respect to this team, it was time for me to move on,” Francona said.

Battle of the coaches OSU game means a lot to Dantonio COLUMBUS (AP) — Consider it a job interview before 105,000 people. Mark Dantonio grew up an hour from the massive Horseshoe on the banks of the Olentangy River that Ohio State has called its home field since 1922. He spent three years as Ohio State’s defensive coordinator, helping the Buckeyes win the national championship in 2002. His wife is an Ohio State graduate. And now he brings his Michigan State team into Ohio Stadium to play the Buckeyes on Saturday. Everybody but Dantonio, it seems, is talking about whether a victory might make him a candidate to become the Buckeyes’ next coach. The game means a lot to him, but not because of employment possibilities. “Every game is personal, but you know I grew up down there, so it’s got a little added incentive,” Dantonio said. “I used to (coach) there, so it’s got added incentive. You want to go back, you want to play well, you want to do the things that have to be done to try and make a statement.” The statement he’s referring to isn’t declaring his candidacy for the job. “This is about our football team,” Dantonio said. “But I think if you’re from Ohio — and we have 24 players who are from Ohio on our roster — it’s a little extra going back home to play.” Luke Fickell is Ohio State’s interim coach. He took over in May when 10year coach Jim Tressel — a mentor to Dantonio, and also Fickell — was forced to resign after admitting he should have known he played several ineligible players in 2010. Tressel was aware that the players had likely taken cash and free tattoos from the subject of a federal drug-trafficking probe. Working on a one-year contract, Fickell is trying to make the best of a trying situation. The Buckeyes are without three offensive starters (and a key backup on defense) who have been suspended by the NCAA for the first five games. Neither 3-1 team can afford a slip to begin Big Ten play, particularly since


Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor warms up before the Raiders’ preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks Sept. 2 in Seattle.

Raiders QB Pryor’s suspension upheld


Ohio State’s Luke Fickell coaches against Akron Sept. 3 in Columbus. both play ranked teams in their next three games. The marquee game on Saturday in the conference, as it should be, is No. 8 Nebraska making its Big Ten debut at No. 7 Wisconsin under the lights at Camp Randall Stadium. Lost in the shuffle is the Michigan State-Ohio State game which pits two of last year’s co-champions in the conference (Ohio State subsequently vacated its 2010 record, including the title). Some of the Buckeyes feel as though they’ve been all but overlooked in the Big Ten’s new two-divisional race, thanks to all the off-the-field embarrassments and a 24-6 loss at Miami two weeks ago. “We still feel like we have great players and we compete and practice hard every day, just like we have in previous years,” linebacker Andrew Sweat said. “We still feel like we have a great shot (at winning another Big Ten title).” Offensive lineman Jack Mewhort added, “(A Big Ten title) is always in the discussion for Ohio State. That’s kind of what’s been expected around here the last seven or eight years.

We want to honor that and we’re going to work hard to do so.” The coaching staffs of the Spartans and Buckeyes aren’t strangers either. In addition to Dantonio, defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi is from Youngstown, Ohio, offensive line coach Mark Staten was an Ohio State grad assistant and linebackers coach Mike Tressel is the nephew of Jim Tressel — and the son of current Buckeyes running backs coach Dick Tressel. “Yeah, sure, I’m worried about my dad over there on the Ohio State staff,” Mike Tressel said. “But I want to beat those guys.” The coaches bump into each other a lot on the road, too: Michigan State has 24 players on its roster who are from Ohio. The Spartans work the Buckeye state almost as hard as do Ohio State’s coaches. “They do a great job in this state. They make it harder on us. They make it harder on everybody,” Fickell said. “We battle with them all the time.” In his five years in East Lansing, Dantonio has

turned the Spartans into a power. He inherited a team that had three consecutive losing seasons and had finished tied for 10th in the Big Ten in 2006. He’s gone 36-20, leading the Spartans to a school-record 11 wins last season and a share of the school’s first Big Ten title since 1990. One thing he hasn’t accomplished is beating Ohio State. The Buckeyes have won the last seven meetings, including a couple that were in the Spartans’ grasp and slipped away. “This is the only football team that we have not beaten in this conference in the four years that we’ve been here,” Dantonio said. “So it’s one thing that we haven’t gotten done yet. From a program standpoint it is important. You have to point toward those things and say, ‘Hey, we can beat anybody in this conference, and we can measure up against anybody in this conference.’ And that’s been the goal here.” And who knows the effect a victory could have when Ohio State starts the interview process after the season to hire a new coach.

NEW YORK (AP) — Terrelle Pryor’s five-game suspension was upheld by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Friday. The Oakland Raiders rookie quarterback had appealed the punishment, which was related to NCAA violations he committed while at Ohio State. Pryor entered the NFL supplemental draft instead of serving a fivegame ban with the Buckeyes after being involved in a cash-formemorablia scandal that has put Ohio State under NCAA investigation. “This smacks of a calculated effort to manipulate our eligibility rules in a way that undermines the integrity of, and public confidence in, those rules,” Goodell said in his decision. Pryor was selected by the Raiders in the third round of the supplemental draft Aug. 22. He originally said he would not

contest the ban but changed his mind and filed the appeal through the union. Several members of the NFL Players Association’s executive committee had expressed concerns about Goodell suspending a player who was not yet in the league. Pryor did not attend his hearing Sept. 15 in New York. “As we have done throughout this process, we will consult with Terrelle and support him in his decision” on what to do next, NFL Players Association spokesman George Atallah said. Pryor opted to give up his final season with the Buckeyes soon after coach Jim Tressel was forced out of his job for failing to notify administrators about players including Pryor trading memorabilia for cash and tattoos at a Columbus, Ohio, tattoo parlor.

Newton’s Hodges gets 100th win Staff Reports


Even though cold rain poured down at the Newton-National Trail game Thursday in Pleasant Hill, things got even colder for Newton coach Brent Hodges. A rain-shortened 5-0 decision over National Trail gave Hodges his 100th win, which was followed by an ice bath from his team. Making things even

more special for Hodges was that his son Jordan was able to score a goal and add an assist in the win. Logan Welbaum scored two goals, Daniel Vance had a goal and an assist, Johnny White scored, as well. Tyler Denlinger and Justin Fessler each added an assist. Newton (8-1-2) hosts Botkins on Tuesday.

Bologna optimistic on Bryant deal ROME (AP) — The president of Virtus Bologna is optimistic Kobe Bryant will sign with the Italian club during the NBA lockout despite scheduling problems posed by other teams. Claudio Sabatini told The Associated Press on Friday that Bryant’s agent Rob Pelinka agreed to an arrangement for 35 to 40 days worth more than $3 million for about 10 games. AP PHOTO “We’re very confident the Kobe Bryant gestures during a sponsor's deal can be completed,” appearance Wednesday in Milan, Italy. Sabatini said. “We’re pre-

pared to make a big investment.” Sabatini said a Bolognabased food company is prepared to provide the cash. “Kobe and his agent have been very professional throughout the dealings and it’s been a pleasure to work with them,” Sabatini said. “I have a huge amount of respect for Kobe not just as a player, but also as a person.” Bologna has requested to play five of its opening 10 games at home, but a few other teams don’t want to

change their schedules to accommodate the Los Angeles Lakers’ star. “I think good sense will prevail,” Sabatini said. His upbeat outlook contrasted with a statement on his club’s website earlier in the day. “With great surprise, Virtus Basketball notes that, due to the negative view of some clubs, it’s not possible to go forward with the 10game agreement, therefore putting in serious doubt the economic deal behind the

plan to bring Kobe Bryant to Italy,” the statement said. Cremona and Varese, two smaller clubs, are refusing to alter their schedules. “We’ve got a chance to bring Bryant here … and the nearsightedness of other clubs is making it impossible,” Sabatini told Italy’s Sky TV earlier. “If we were at the end of the season, with clubs fighting to avoid relegation or for the playoffs, I would understand. But now nobody has anything on the line.”

■ High School Football FRIDAY NIGHT ROUNDUP

Tippecanoe hammers Bellefontaine BELLEFONTAINE — Tippecanoe quarterback Ben Hughes connected with reciever Michael Collett for two scores in the second half — once on a 27-yard pass in the third quarter and 26yarder in the fourth — and the Devils rolled to a 28-14 win over Bellefontaine Friday. Tipp grabbed a 14-7 lead at the end of the first quarter on an 80yard TD run by Jacob Hall and a 1-yard punch in by Cameron Johnson, and the score remained the same going into half. After Collett’s score in the third, Bellefontaine’s Ian Keller had a rushing touchdown, that made the score 21-14. But the Devils came up clutch in the end, just as they have done all year. “They (Bellefontaine) have a 1-5 record, but they are a better team than their record indicates,” Tippecanoe coach

Charlie Burgbacher said. “They’ve lost some close games by one or two points, but they are a young team like us. It was a good win.” Tipp (6-0, 1-0 Central Buckeye Conference Kenton Trail Division) plays Stebbins next Friday.

Bulldogs blast Carlisle WEST MILTON — If there was one game circled on Milton-Union’s calender this year — Carlisle was it. Milton-Union jumped out to a 21-6 halftime lead behind a balanced offensive-attack, and it never faltered in a 31-19 win over defending Southwestern Buckeye League champion Carlisle. Jake Finfrock ran for two scores, Clay Minton ran for a touchdown and blocked an extra point, Alex King caught a pass for a touchdown from Cody Hollon and Nick Fields added a field goal early in the second half.

“This is a great win for us,” Milton-Union coach Bret Pearce said. “To be the league champs, you have got to beat the league champs. They came in and beat us 42-0 last year. For us to come out and get the win like we did, its a little bit of redemption for us. “The offensive line played great for us tonight,” Pearce said. “They opened up some big holes and gave us room to run the ball all night.” Milton (5-1, 2-0 SWBL Buckeye Division) will host Prebble Shawnee for its homecoming next Friday.

Troy Christian gets 1st win TROY — On homecoming night, Troy Christian picked up its first win of ths season, knocking off Jefferson 20-14 in overtime. Jefferson scored with 17 seconds left in the game to force overtime. Tyler Shinall scored the winning touchdown for the Eagles in over-

punt attempt. “The guys came to play tonight,” Bethel coach Brad Clendening said. “We played a competitive game for four quarters. We haven’t played a complete game since the Covington game, and that makes a big difference.” The Bees (3-3, 2-3 Cross County Conference) plays National Trail next week.


Troy Christian’s Tyler Shinall breaks loose for a touchdown run against Jefferson Friday night. time, and the Troy Christian defense held the Broncos scoreless to preserve the win. Shinall finished his night with 14 carries for 118 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Seth Manuel carried the ball 29 times for 84 yards and a touchdown. Troy Christian quarterback Matt Coots competed 6 of 8 passes for 25 yards. With the win, Troy Christian improved to 15, while Jefferson fell to 0-6. Troy Christian travels

to Lima Perry this coming Friday.

Bethel ends skid WEST ALEXANDRIA — Bethel stormed into Twin Valley South and came away with a 23-6 win Friday. Jon Ellerbrock had a 9yard touchdown run and a 13-yard strike to Ben Seale, Reed Pelphrey also had a 3yard touchdown run. The Bees also got a safety after a poor Panther snap on a

Panthers pound Bradford LEWISBURG — TroCounty North bounced back from a sound defeat at the hands of Covington last week, beating Bradford 50-22 Friday night. The Panthers led 28-0 at the half and 43-0 after three quarters. Jon Barbee had a 32yard touchdown run to open a 22-point fourth quarter for Bradford, and Brandon Wysong threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to James Canan and ran another in from 8 yards out. Other scores: Trotwood 26, Piqua 23.

Covington’s Kyler Deeter turns the corner against the Miami East defense.


Troy’s Zach Jones breaks away from the Butler defense Friday at Troy Memorial Stadium.

Buccs/Vikes ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 us out.” Troy Cron picked off a pair of passes — including one on the next-to-last play of the game to seal the victory for the defending CCC champs — and Trent Tobias and Dylan Owens each had one interception. Tobias’ came at arguably the biggest moment. With Covington up only 7-0 and the Vikings with a first-andgoal at the 10, the Bucc defense held Miami East on a pair of runs, forcing a third-and-6. Kodey Price looked to the back corner of the end zone, but Tobias stepped in front of the pass and put an end to the Vikings’ only scoring threat of the game. “The goalline stand at the end of the half was great,” Miller said. “The kids had to reach down, they had some adversity with the penalty (a late hit that set up the series), and they never gave up.” The Buccs held Miami East (4-2, 4-1) to 183 yards of total offense — 128.4 below the Vikings’ average — with 61 of them coming on a pair of desperation passes on the final two drives of the fourth quarter. “We made plays in our previous five games when we had to, but tonight we didn’t,” Miami East coach Max Current said. “Their offense just made three more plays then ours did tonight. We had opportunities to make plays, but we didn’t make them. “It seemed like everyone was waiting around for someone else to make a play instead of manning up, going out and making it themselves.” Covington’s first score of

Miami East’s Kevin McMaken (42) heads upfield.

Miami East’s Michael Fellers (13) tries to field off Covington’s Alex Baskerville (23). the game came in the middle of the second quarter and capped off a 12-play, 68yard drive. On third-and-6 from the Vikings’ 11, quarterback Isaiah Winston kept the ball on an option handoff, found a hole through the middle of the line and somersaulted into the end zone to put the Buccs up 7-0. Miami East tried to answer on the ensuing drive, going 49 yards on 13 plays — including a clutch fourth-down conversion by Kevin McMaken. But Tobias’ pick put an end to

that threat, and Covington took a slim lead into the half. But Owens picked off a Bowling pass on a secondand-11 play on the Vikings’ first possession after the break, and after the teams traded punts, Tobias — in at quarterback — faked an option pitch and faked out the entire Miami East defense, keeping it himself for a 61-yard touchdown. The extra point went wide, though, and the Buccs led 13-0. That never came back to

haunt them, though, as Tobias threw a pass on a slant over the middle that was tipped — but still hit Kyler Deeter in stride, and Deeter took it 57 yards to make it a 19-0 game. Miami East’s dangerous rushing attack was held in check most of the night. Bruising fullback McMaken was held to 51 yards on 11 carries, while the team’s home run hitters on the outside, Josh Snyder and Michael Fellers, were held to 32 on eight carries and 24 on seven carries, respectively. “They were more aggressive at the point of attack that we were,” Current said. “We definitely didn’t have the same intensity this week that we did in the second half (of a 41-10 win) at Bethel last week. Our initial blocking wasn’t as aggressive. We’ve got to do a better job of competing on every down.” As a result, the Vikings’ went to the air more often. Bowling finished 4 for 13 for 68 yards and three interceptions, and Price was 1 for 3 for 8 yards with a pick. Winston and Tobias both broke the 100-yard rushing barrier for the Buccs. Winston finished with 108 yards on 19 carries and Tobias had 101 on 12 attempts. “Miami East is a great football team, and for us to do what we did tonight is impressive,” Miller said. “The kids just kept battling away. That’s how they approach everything. Our team chemistry is great, and the kids all pull for each other.” Covington hosts Twin Valley South next week, while Miami East travels to Tri-County North.

Trojans ■ CONTINUED FROM B1 before step up and play really well. It was our best team effort of the year, by far.” Another big special teams play set up Troy’s second touchdown. A 41yard punt return by Ian Dunaway gave the Trojans the ball at the Aviator 19. Five plays later, Williams scored his second touchdown. On the extra point attempt, the snap was bad, but Dunaway — the holder — scooped it up and completed a two-point conversion pass to Marcus Foster to put Troy up 150. Butler would cut Troy’s lead to 15-8 on a touchdown run by Tyler Jones — who came into the game with more than 1,000 rushing yards at the midpoint of the season, but was largely contained by Troy’s defense Friday — but yet another special teams play by the Trojans allowed Troy to take a 228 lead into halftime. After Butler forced a Troy punt, the Aviators fumbled the return, allowing long snapper Alex Dalton to pounce on it at the Butler 31. Three plays later, Trojan quarterback Cody May completed a 31yard scoring strike to Dunaway. “Special teams played excellent,” Nolan said. “They gave us a lot of short field to work with — and our offense was able to take advantage of them.” Troy would continue to dominate on both sides of the ball through the sec-

ond half as Butler was never able to get any closer than within two touchdowns. Defensive lineman Quentin Vaughan nailed Jones for a loss on a fourth-and-2 attempt, giving the Trojans the ball near midfield. Long runs by Miles Hibbler and Foster — wrapped around a nifty completion from May to Dunaway — set up Williams’ third touchdown run of the night, extending Troy’s lead to 29-8. Butler would score again to cut Troy’s lead to 29-15 — not that it mattered. Troy immediately answered with a 4-yard score by fullback Zach Jones, who finished the night with 12 carries for 96 yards. With Troy up 35-15, Butler drove deep into Trojan territory, but Ian Nadolny picked off a Pugh pass at the Trojan 1-yard line. Troy immediately responded with a 99-yard scoring drive — highlighted by a 70-yard scamper by Williams — that ended with a 1-yard scoring run by May. Troy would tack on a cosmetic 57-yard touchdown run by Hibbler to close out the scoring. “I think we made a statement (Friday),” said Foster, who picked of a pass for Troy. “We knew we had to come out and play hard the whole game. We had a few broken plays, but the defense played great. It was our best team effort of the season.” Finally.
