Council discusses projects Construction amongst topics BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer

First Lady visits Ohio CINCINNATI (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama has told thousands of supporters in downtown Cincinnati that the November presidential election will be even closer than the one four years ago and that every single vote counts. See Page 4.

After recognizing the new students of the Mayor’s Youth Council, Troy City Council approved all legislation at Monday’s meeting, including moving forward on the North

Market Street Improvement Project and bidding for cleaning the East Lime Sludge Lagoon. The improvement project — which includes Staunton Road to Foss Way/Kirk Lane — is estimated to cost nearly $1.75 million, with more than $145,000 estimated to come from property owners for sidewalk assessments. A

board will be appointed to review any objections from residents. The city will pay for handicap ramps, public storm sewers, pavement improvements, water lines, curbs and intersection improvements. Councilman Alan Clark asked if property owners — particularly business owners — would be noti-

TROY fied of the upcoming construction work. Bobby Phillips, chairman of the buildings, streets and sidewalks committee, said all owners would be notified and that patience is requested in the midst of construction-related inconveniences. Council also approved emergency legislation for an Ohio

CORRECTION In Sunday’s story “Teachers subject to evaluations,” Troy High Schools social studies teacher and Troy City Education Association president Keith Yunker was misquoted in reference to “many of the state’s problematic teachers are mostly found in urban areas.” Yunker’s reference to the urban school districts was that in the attempt to fix the problems that face the large urban districts, the state is mandating reform on all school districts. The Troy Daily News apologizes for this error.

TIPP CITY the tax department. According to the report, there is no indication that Kessler’s company, Tour Great Miami, received any preferential treatment. Based on the available account statements and staff inquiries, the investigators determined that the process used to follow up on Tour Great Miami’s delinquent taxes was no different than for any other account. Additionally, based on the city’s accounting records, two payments were made in 2012 on Tour Great Miami’s taxes. But while the investigation determined that there was no preferential treatment and that payments have been made, the results clearly show that the city has a record keeping problem. “There is an issue with poor record keeping,” City Manager Jon Crusey said. According to the report, in 2008 and 2009 the city’s income tax software print-

ed delinquent tax reports and statements for delinquent accounts, but because the city used the traditional U.S. postal service, there is no way to know if those statements were delivered. Similarly, the 2009, 2010 and 2011 business account tax due reports could not be provided. “We send a two-part statement. The top copy is for the resident to keep, second copy is for the resident to return with their payment. We only print two copies, so they both go out in the mail. We hope to get one of those back with a check attached to it,” Finance Director John Green explained. “They’re sent out via normal U.S. mail; they’re not sent certified. Therefore, while we know they were sent, we cannot prove they were sent.” According to Green, those statements are generated from a past due report. Those reports are

TROY will sentence her to 17 months in prison. Originally, Cooper was charged with two counts of unlawful sexual conduct involving a minor and five counts of permitting drug abuse, but those charges were either later amended or dismissed. According to her indictment, Cooper committed the offenses between June 1 and Oct. 31, 2011, at her former West Milton residence. Authorities first began investigating Cooper, a mother of six children, after receiving information that was purchasing drugs and alcohol for minors and had “sexual intercourse with a minor under the age of 16 on two separate occasions,” according to a bill of particulars filed in the case. Some of the juveniles involved were “friends of her teenage children,” police said.

Firefighter arrested in dispute at bar BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer

TROY According to the Troy Police Department’s reports, police were called to Fricker’s where several witnesses claimed Covaulted knocked his wife down to the floor of the bar before driving home. Cline tried to restrain Covault and sustained a cut to his lip. Both Cline, his wife and several witnesses said Covault was drunk during the fight. Cline claimed he tried to restrain Covault after he had knocked his wife down. According to Mrs. Covault, she said Covalut was drunk and had insisted driving home. She said he took her purse, removed the keys and began to get up and leave. She claimed that she tried to get her key back and Covault knocked her to the ground. Cline then tried to intervene. Officers at the scene tried to explain the Ohio Domestic Violence law to Mrs. Covault, but refused to press charges. Mrs. Covault made a phone call while at the scene stating, “he (blank) threw me across the floor in front of the floor” and “my tailbone hurts so bad.” Officers

A Troy Fire Department firefighter was charged with disorderly conduct, reduced from a previous charge of domestic violence following an incident at local sports bar on Aug. 2. According to a public records search, Jeffrey Covault, a city of Troy Fire Department since May 1996, was charged with disorderly conduct after he allegedly knocked down his wife, Amy, and his friend John Cline, after they tried to restrain Covault from leaving Fricker’s sports bar on Aug. 2. Troy Fire Department’s Chief Chris Boehringer said Covault was not disciplined in this incident due to statements made at the scene and his wife refusing to press charges. Boehringer said Covault did not miss a day on duty. Boehringer confirmed Covault had prior disciplinary issues following a DUI arrest in June 2011, which was later reduced to a physical control of vehicle while under the influence and was suspended for one 24-hour shift for that inci• See FIREFIGHTER on 2 dent.

kept for three different types of accounts: individual accounts, business accounts, and payroll withholding accounts. In most cases the department has the reports that were used to generate delinquent statements for individual and payroll withholding accounts, but does not always have the for business reports accounts in 2009, 2010 and 2011. This does not mean that the city doesn’t know what businesses owed taxes in those years or that the information was unavailable for the investigation, Green said, because that information is in the city’s income tax software. “It’s 2012 now, I can generate a delinquent statement for any account in any year, but I can’t prove that it was done in


’08, ’09 and ’10,” Green said. So while the city can get any records off the computer, they often do not have hard copies unless the recipient mailed back a copy with payment and if the recipient does not mail payment, there’s no proof the statement was ever sent or received. This issue comes up frequently in the report, leading the firm to include several suggestions for better record keeping including having all quarterly delinquent tax reports reviewed and approved by the finance director, maintaining documentation of all collection efforts, sending delinquent notices via certified mail, and using a collection agency. Councilman Mike McDermott called the documentation problems “troubling” and said that

it is an issue that council needs to look into. Councilman Joe Gibson announced his intention to prepare legislation for council to consider. Internet cafes In other business, council discussed an ordinance that will extend for six months the current moratorium on sweepstakes/internet cafes. The moratorium was enacted last November and extended for six months in May of this year. “What are we accomplishing by passing this running concurrently with the state’s moratorium?” Budding said. “For me, I think our direction should actually be putting legislation on how they are going to be regulated.” Since the state has not yet determined how to regulate this type of business, Tipp City should not make any laws regulating them, said Kessler.

Otherwise, the city runs the risk of having those laws invalidated when the state makes a decision. “I look at it that this is a controversial type of there are business, reports that perhaps maybe there’s crime associated with it or other bad things. And if you are going to allow this, then you want to regulate to what extent that you can in advance, rather than letting a moratorium that has been imposed stop lapse,” Gibson and explained. “Then a business comes in and there’s no rules, there’s no boundaries, there’s no guidelines and we have to regulate kind of after the fact.” Since Mayor Dee Gillis and Councilwoman Katelyn Black were absent and Councilman Bryan Budding voted no, the ordinance failed and will be read again at the next meeting.

The council approved two resolutions authorizing the city manager to apply for grants for upcoming construction projects. The first is a $300,000 Public Works Ohio Commission grant for the replacement of a waterline, repairs to the existing sanitary sewer line, installation of a new storm sewer, and asphalt overlay along Westedge from Bowman to Bellaire. The second is a Ohio $344,000 of Department Transportation grant for the County Road 25A/Kessler-Cowlesville resurfacing project. According to Crusey, it is very likely that the city will receive these funds. Assitant City Manager Brad Vath said the results won’t come back until 2013 for the Public Works grant and 2014 for the Transportation grant.

costs, with the city of Troy responsible for the remaining amount. Also approved was the rezoning of 722 Grant St. from light industrial district to office commercial district as well as legislation to amend a section of the codified ordinances to

state that the city is subdivided into six wards, to reflect the number of members of council to be elected. During the audience comments section, Troy resident Lester Conard commented that Troy’s mayor Mike Beamish is

paid significantly more than other mayors, according to a recent news story. He noted that some grant money for projects comes from taxpayers and is not merely free money. “It’s not just something you pick off a tree

— it’s taxpayers’ money,” Conard said. Council then recessed into executive session to discuss negotiations or bargaining sessions pertaining to public employees’ compensation and other employment matters.

TOLEDO (AP) — A woman accused of duping residents of a small town into believing she had cancer took money raised by children who sold bracelets and friends who dyed their hair pink, police said. Just about everyone in the village of North Baltimore had done something to show their support for Kimberlie Gustwiller, who had spent much of her life in the town and began


sporting a pink mohawk after announcing she had cancer, police Chief Allan Baer said. At least several thousand dollars had been raised, he said. devastated, “They’re heartbroken,” he said. “This community was amazing.” Gustwiller, who lives in the nearby village of McComb, was charged with felony theft last week. She was released from jail Monday after posting bond. Her phone has been disconnected, and it’s not clear whether she has an attorney yet. Baer said Gustwiller began telling people in early September that she had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a broad description for a number of blood cancers primarily affecting white blood cells in the

lymph tissue. Groups held bake sales and sold stickers for Gustwiller. Football players put pink stripes on their helmets and hundreds of girls and women had pink streaks painted in their hair in exchange for donations, the police chief said. But after a while, some people began to question her story because some of her answers about the illness seemed evasive, he said. “Some things weren’t adding up,” Baer said. A court order allowed police to look at her medical records, which showed no evidence of cancer or any other illness, he said. Police are still trying to determine how much money was raised by the community about 30 miles south of Toledo.

PIQUA — Finding the right school can be like putting together the pieces of a puzzle. Things like size, location and cost are all elements that can have a major impact on a student’s decision for where they will attend college and how successful they will ultimately be. Edison Community College will again be helping students and their parents with this monumental decision, by hosting the annual College Fair on Tuesday, Oct. 9, from 12:30-2 p.m. in the Convocation Center of the Piqua Campus.

Ohio college enrollment declining

Cincinnati’s convention center on the first day of early voting in the key swing state on Tuesday, Obama reminded the crowd that her husband won Ohio four years ago with just 262,000 votes. She says that breaks down to 24 votes per precinct and urged them to get to the polls.

DAYTON (AP) — College enrollment in Ohio is dropping. A preliminary report released by the Ohio Board of Regents Monday shows that enrollment has dropped 5.9 percent since last year. The decline of more than 31,000 students at the state’s 61 public universities and colleges was expected, but it still hurt some financially and forced the layoff of 23 people at one community college. The Dayton Daily News

Occupational pattional Health h Close Clo se to Home.

reports that the enrollment decline is attributed to a record number of students graduating last year ahead of the semester conversion at 17 institutions. Also to blame are changes to federal financial aid that mean fewer students are eligible, and an economy that has some choosing to go to work instead of school. It’s the second consecutive year enrollment has dipped. The Ohio Board of Regents 15-day headcount shows that enrollment at university main campuses is down about 1 percent from 2011. It’s down 4.24 percent at university regional campuses, and 13

percent at the state’s community colleges. “After several consecutive years of robust gains in enrollment for many area colleges and universities, this type of leveling off is to be expected, especially as the economy improves and students put their degrees and training to work,” said Sean Creighton, executive director for the Southwestern Ohio Council for Higher Education. A total of 507,425 students are enrolled in college in Ohio this fall, according to the report. That includes 280,728 on main campuses, 49,737 at regional campuses and 176,960 at community colleges.

Candidates’ deficit plans don’t add up WASHINGTON (AP) — Here’s the rap on the presidential candidates’ plans for cutting federal deficits: Mitt Romney’s is too bold and the numbers don’t add up, while President Barack Obama’s is too timid and his numbers don’t add up, either. As the government closed the books Sunday with a $1.1 trillion deficit for the year, which required borrowing 32 cents for every dollar it spent, budget analysts have little confidence in either man’s plan to address the accumulating debt, now at about $16 trillion. The Republican nominee promises to balance the budget in eight years to 10 years, but he also offers a mix of budgetary contradictions: higher Pentagon spending, restoring cuts that Democrats made in Medicare and an absolute refusal to consider tax increases. To fulfill his promise, Romney would require cuts to other programs so deep under one calculation requiring cutting many areas of the domestic budget by one-third within four years that they could never get through Congress. In other words, it wouldn’t work. Obama claims more than $4 trillion in deficit savings over the coming decade. But it you peel away accounting tricks and debatable claims on spending cuts, it’s more like $1.1 trillion. Republicans say it’s even less because of creative bookkeeping used to mask spending on Medicare reimbursements to doctors. The accounting gets tricky, but the biggest faults with Obama’s math are his claims of more than $2 trillion in savings from earlier budget deals with Republicans and an additional $848 billion in savings from winding down of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. “You can’t find a $4 trillion number,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a conservative who once led the Congressional Budget Office. Obama promises relatively small cuts of $597 billion from big federal benefit programs such as Medicare and Medicaid over the next decade while proposing tax increases of $1.9 trillion that he couldn’t push through Congress when Democrats controlled both the House and Senate. Obama’s performance on the deficit should be his Achilles heel. The deficit has exceeded $1 trillion each year on his watch. He gave a cold shoulder to his own special deficit commission. Whatever efforts have occurred over the past two years to curb the deficit have come under pressure by Republicans. “The American people see the financial chaos. They know it must stop. They know their families are at risk, and that their country is in danger,” Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., said in a recent GOP radio address. “Yet the president does not rally the country to action. Instead, he says our debt course is nothing to worry about.” Romney offers a set of principles and promises rather than a detailed plan. He pledges to shrink the government to 20 percent of the size of the economy, as opposed to more than 23 percent of gross domestic product now, by the end of his first term. The Romney campaign estimates that would require cuts of $500 billion from the 2016 budget alone. Romney proposes saving hundreds of billions of dollars over the coming decade by following House Republicans’ plan to sharply cut federal spending on Medicaid health care for the poor and disabled, and turn it over to state governments. He pledges to cut the federal workforce by 10 percent. But Romney also promises large budget increases for the Pentagon and rejects a plan by his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., that endorses more than $700 billion in cuts to Medicare that were made as part of Obama’s health care law. Social Security is off the table. That means big cuts to what’s left over: nuts-and-bolts government agencies including the FBI, Federal Aviation Administration and Border Patrol; programs such as food inspection and space exploration; and popular subsidy and benefit programs for farmers, veterans and college students. The liberal-leaning Center on Budget and Policy Priorities calculates that Romney’s budget outline could require a one-third cut in domestic programs by 2016, excluding Social Security and Medicare, to make the math work. By 2022, such programs would have to be cut by more than half.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP China Daily, Beijing, on United States playing dual role: Any discerning person can see the motive behind the joint drill between Japan’s Ground Self-Defense Force and the U.S. Marine Corps in Guam on a recent Saturday. It was the first exercise of its kind, held purportedly to enhance the two countries’ capabilities to defend remote islands from “foreign assault.” Tension between China and Japan had mounted further on Friday night as scores of Japanese policemen landed on China’s Diaoyu Islands. But instead of taking steps to defuse the tension, Japan started the joint drill, which GSDF claimed was not aimed at any specific island or third country. As early as 2005, Japan’s

Defense Agency had prepared a plan to defend the remote islands south of Kyushu and Okinawa against a possible “invasion” from China. … The Diaoyu Islands dispute is a delicate issue, and the U.S. is responsible for creating it. First, it wrongly grouped them with Ryukyu Islands (known as Okinawa today) to take over their administration in 1951. Second, it handed them over to Japan, rather than China, in 1972. Now that it has become a covert part to the Diaoyu Islands dispute, it has the chance of absolving itself by playing a constructive role to resolve it. But it seems it is interested only in making the issue thornier. The U.S. began test-flying MV-22 Ospreys in Okinawa on

Sept 21. Since the Japanese see the airplane-helicopter hybrid as crucial leverage in a territorial dispute with China, the U.S. is encouraging Japan to stay away from a peaceful, negotiated settlement of the issue. During his recent visit to China, U.S. Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta reiterated that Washington would not take sides in territorial disputes in the region. But while in Japan, which he visited before China, he said the U.S.-Japan security treaty also covered the Diaoyu Islands. The U.S. pivot to Asia and the rebalancing of its armed forces are aimed at just one thing: containing China’s rise. We hope Washington is not running with the hare and hunting with the hounds.


Even as an adult, I’m still deathly afraid of needles Recently I needed to get a flu shot. An acquaintance needed one too (we volunteer together), so off we went to fulfill this seemingly minute requirement. No big deal, right? I should have known better. The nurse asked if I was alright to stand while she administered the vaccine. I said “sure,” trying not to look like a big wuss in front of one of my peers. Midway through, I found myself feeling faint, and the next thing I knew, I woke up collapsed on the floor, with now two nurses hovering over me, one shaking my legs. Talk about embarrassing. I’ve fainted many times in my life. Throughout elementary school I had “fainting spells,” a bloodsugar-related problem eventually corrected by integrating snacks into my school day. But another problem also left me dizzy at times: my fear of needles (and anything else involving blood). This silly little phobia can be traced back to science class in fourth grade, when one day my teacher was talking about the circulatory system. Long story short, she started discussing how blood flows to the heart, yadayadayada, I passed out and woke up on the ground.

Natalie Knoth Troy Daily News Columnist I then had to get blood work done and passed out again — further proving that my fear of needles causes not just mental anguish, but physical stress, too. I’m nothing short of terrified. In the years that followed, I would pass out maybe three times out of four when I had to get blood drawn. Having to fast before boosts my chances of fainting even more. Nights before any blood work, I can’t sleep and even get nightmares. Knowing that diabetics, hospital patients and many, many other people undergo needle pricks many, many times a day does not help me get a grip. In fact, it makes me feel even more pathetic. I have all the sympathy in the world for these brave people and cannot pretend that I would have

anywhere near the same courage. Anesthesia via injection is not my friend either. Prior to getting my wisdom teeth taken out, I was shaking as the doctor discussed the procedure. Never mind that the surgery involves cutting into the mouth. My real concern? That needle in my arm. “If you can’t handle this, how are you going to have children?” asked the smirking doctor. Pretty sure I just stared back at him, feeling hopelessly stupid. I think the better question is, when I do have kids one day, how will I calm their nerves about getting a routine shot or blood test when I’m absolutely terrified? Not sure if I can even handle just seeing the syringe. Guess I’ll make my future hubby go in my place. For the record, the wisdom teeth surgery was fine. In fact, I was able to eat Thanksgiving dinner the next day. And by eat, I mean place a small bit of turkey/pie/cranberry sauce on my tongue and then swallow. I’ve been asked many times by apprehensive patients-to-be how the surgery went. My response is always the same: “Surgery was no big deal — and I’m the biggest baby. But that needle before? Yeah, that freaked me out BIG TIME.”

Still, my fainting-while-gettinga-flu-shot saga surprised me because I thought I had overcome the “mind over matter” issue of needles over the years. If I don’t think about it and play it cool, then it won’t bother me. That philosophy had worked for me throughout college, as I had survived a couple blood tests during routine check-ups without fainting. Yet during the incident recently, I just couldn’t stop the physical reaction, even when the nurse had me distracted by rambling about OU. After the fact, the nurse explained that some people experience vasovagal syncope — defined by National Institutes of Health as a temporary loss of consciousness usually having “an easily identified triggering event such as emotional stress, trauma, pain, the sight of blood, or prolonged standing.” Having low blood pressure to begin with apparently makes the situation worse, too. If I’ve learned one thing from the flu shot incident, it’s this: I’m getting the nasal spray next time.

Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable search and seizure. In a decision last month, U.S. District Judge William H. Pauley wrote that defendant Melvin Colon’s “legitimate expectation of privacy ended when he disseminated posts to his ‘friends’ because those ‘friends’ were free to use the information however they wanted including sharing it with the government.”

In Chicago, police similarly monitor Facebook and other social media to learn what gang members are saying about shootings and other crimes. They also built a database of the city’s gang members and provide commanders with software that allows them to send officers to spots where they expect a gang to retaliate for a shooting. A federal judge in New York has already weighed in on the privacy issue, siding with prosecutors in a gang case in the Bronx. In that case, federal investigators infiltrated the private Facebook posts


mation, officials said. Donna Lieberman, executive director of the New York Civil Liberties Union, said the NYPD “has the right, indeed the obligation, to pursue effective avenues for investigating criminal gang activity, and that includes using Facebook and other social media.” But she said such methods must be closely monitored so they don’t become “a vehicle for entrapment or unauthorized surveillance.” Police and prosecutors insist they are following strict legal protocols. “When we meet with the police and we talk about investigative techniques, when they are on these social media sites, we’ll give them certain directions,” Ed Carroll, head of the Gang Bureau of the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office, said Tuesday. “We don’t want to set up any situation where anyone is being entrapped or put in a position where they’re going to agree to commit a crime.”


virtual map of their criminal activity over the last three years,” the commissioner said in remarks prepared for delivery at a law enforcement convention in San Diego. Examples of the public displays of digital bravado abound. In the Brooklyn case, suspects sought to intimidate informants by posting court documents containing their names, authorities said. In another throwdown, the Rockstarz posted a photo of a Very Cripsy member and the comment, “He is scared. Look at him.” Police say much of the potentially incriminating material they gather can be found on Facebook profiles that are public. But as part its new, stepped-up efforts, the department will refine and expand use of a tactic instrumental in the threeyear Brooklyn gang investigation having officers adopt Internet aliases, create phony profiles and seek to “friend” suspects to gain access to nonpublic infor-


NEW YORK (AP) — Police investigating two gangs called the Very Cripsy Gangsters and the Rockstarz didn’t need to spend all their time pounding the pavement for leads. Instead, they fired up their computers and followed the trash talk on Facebook. “Rockstarz up 3-0,” one suspect boasted a reference to the body count from a bloody turf war between the Brooklyn gangs that ultimately resulted in 49 arrests last month. Authorities in New York say a new generation of gang members is increasingly using social media to boast of their exploits and issue taunts and challenges that result in violence. And police and prosecutors have responded over the past several years by closely monitoring Facebook and other sites for leads and evidence. On Tuesday, New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly announced plans to beef up the NYPD’s cyber crackdown by expanding the use of aggressive online investigative tactics and doubling the size of the department’s gang unit to 300 investigators. The reinforcements will focus less on established gangs like the Bloods and Crips and more on loosely knit groups of teenagers who stake out a certain block or section of a housing project as their turf and exact vengeance on those who trespass or fail to show the proper respect. “By capitalizing on the irresistible urge of these suspects to brag about their murderous exploits on Facebook, detectives used social media to draw a

he Middle East is not a continent but a geographical region where three continents – Europe, Asia, and Africa – meet. It is this prime location that is mainly responsible for its historical importance and cultural identity. As long ago as 2000 B.C., the region that we now call the Middle East (it actually wasn’t called that until World War II) was a center of commerce and culture. Over the course of history, this area has been the location of several great civilizations, including the Persian Empire, the Byzantine Empire, and the Ancient Egyptians.

Word of the Week export — derived from the conceptual meaning as to ship the goods and services out of the port of a country

NIE Coordinator: Dana Wolfe / Graphic Designer: Scarlett E. Smith

This region is also important because it was the birthplace of three of the world’s most widely followed religions: Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. Today, the majority of people living in the Middle East are Muslims, or followers of Islam. In ancient and medieval times, cities in the Middle East were important centers of culture and commerce. Since World War II, the Middle East has taken on even more political and economic significance because it is the location of the world’s greatest known oil reserves. Oil is exported by the countries along the Persian Gulf to places all over the world.

The languages of the Middle East include Arabic, Persian (or Farsi), Turkish, and Hebrew. Some small communities, isolated by deserts and mountains, developed their own languages and distinct cultures, and many of those still exist today. The landscape of the Middle East is made up of mountains, dry plateaus, and deserts. The climate is mostly arid, or very dry. Although there are several great international airports in the Middle East, travel within the countries is still fairly primitive. Camels, donkeys, and other draft animals are only gradually being replaced by motorized vehicles as the primary means of transport.

Devote some time to yourself to break the cycle Dear Annie: I'm writing on behalf of those of us in the "trapped" generation. We are the ones who grew up thinking Doris Day was the ideal woman. We were college-educated, but still expected to marry and have a family. Many of us limited our careers to part-time efforts. Then came our husbands' midlife crises and no-fault divorces. For many of us who had "dumbed down" our careers to care for our husbands, we weren't able to make ends meet once the child support payments stopped. For some of us, we had sacrificed further education or job advances for our husbands' careers. According to the Social Security Administration, I never earned more than $10,000 per year until I was 45 years old. The divorce decree stated that I was to split the children's college costs equally with my ex, who was making three times my salary. I've run up a lot of personal debt paying for my kids' education, and now, at age 60, I'm making what my husband made 30 years ago. I work hard, but can't seem to get ahead. Women like me are tired of struggling financially and raising kids while their fathers find new trophy wives. If your male readers are wondering where the faithful women are, we are sitting home, living with the remnants of the stresses from one-sided divorces. I continue to hope that real companionship is still a possibility. — Thwarted Dear Thwarted: We are sure you speak for many women. But please don't give up. Your children are grown now. If you want to meet men (or anyone), devote some time to yourself. Look into activities and organizations that are free, low-cost or volunteer, and see if you can break out of the cycle you are in. Dear Annie: I'm a middle-aged woman, living with my boyfriend. We have both been married before and have children. When I met "Doug," we would sit and talk for hours. Since our engagement, however, everything seems to be going downhill. We have not set a wedding date, nor do we discuss it. Due to my previous marriage and some mistakes, my credit is not where it should be. The amount of money I make will never allow me to get caught up. I have been applying for new jobs, but haven't found one yet. Doug says I need my credit to be good before he sets a date. I'm interviewing now for a job that could turn into a steady and rewarding career. He said, "Let's see if you get it." Whenever someone asks me, "When is the big date?" my heart sinks. I am starting to feel as though Doug is not ready to commit. He proposed and gave me a beautiful ring. Now we argue a lot. I'm no spring chicken, Annie. I feel as if I'm running out of time. What should I do? — Want Happiness Sooner Dear Want: Doug is reluctant to take on your debts and may fear you are using him for financial security. He wants to see that you have a decent job before he marries you. This is not an unreasonable concern. The fact that you're in a hurry only makes him more skittish. Stop worrying about what other people think. If you get a good job and Doug still won't set a date, then reconsider the relationship. Dear Annie: "Empty Nester" said she's looking to make friends now that her kids are out of the house. Thanks for suggesting I moved across the country and was concerned about finding friends in a new city. Since I work from home, the office is not a viable place to get to know anyone. MeetUp has been terrific. I joined a dining-out group, another for women over 40 and one for dog lovers. I've made wonderful new friends. — P.

Simple hint will help keep your cookies crispy Dear Heloise: Desperate for a crispy cookie, but tired of the soft, chemical-tasting ones from the grocery store, I stuck a store-bought chocolate-chip cookie in the toaster oven at 350 degrees for about five minutes. The edges and parts of the bottom were actually dark brown. After cooling a bit, it tasted delicious and crisp. I’m glad I didn’t discover this trick earlier in my life, or I’d probably be 10 pounds heavier. — Elizabeth D., via email Love your hint, and it can be a trick to make warm, almosthome-style cookies from store-

Hints from Heloise Columnist brought. Please do “test” the time and temperature so they don’t burn. — Heloise DIPPING BREAD Dear Heloise: Many restaurants serve bread with olive oil to dip it in, but I don’t always want to have to go out to a restaurant to get it. So,

I’ve started making it myself at home. Any small dish of oil mixed with freshly ground pepper, pepper flakes, minced garlic or other spices will do. I like to add Parmesan cheese on top for a delicious appetizer. — Gwen R. in Tennessee Great money-saving hint, and here’s another bread hint from Betty in Huntsville, Ala. She says: “I’ve baked bread for years, and I’ve found that by laying each baked loaf on its side, it is much easier to slice. You will be slicing from side to side instead of from top to bottom, which also gives more uniform slices. I also use a ser-

rated knife, which is a must.” — Heloise DRY WHITE WINE Dear Heloise: When recipes call for a “dry” white wine, could you specifically tell me which white wines are considered “dry”? — M.F., via email Well, a dry wine is one that is not sweet! When cooking or drinking, a good general guideline for a dry white wine would be a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. Many recipes call for “dry” white wine as an ingredient when you want the enhancement of wine but no sweetness added. — Heloise

Tests come back negative in the search for Hoffa DETROIT (AP) — Like many others that came before it, the latest search for former Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa has come up empty. Tests on soil samples gathered last week from a backyard in suburban Detroit showed no traces that Hoffa or anyone else was buried there, Roseville police announced Tuesday. “Our department just received the soil sample report from Michigan State University, after a battery of tests; the samples submitted for examination showed no signs of human decomposition,” the police statement read. “As a result of these tests the Roseville Police Department will be concluding their investigation into the possible interment of a human body upon the property.” Thus ended the latest in a long string of tips and rumors about one of America’s great mysteries. Over the years, authorities have dug up a Michigan horse farm, looked under a swimming pool and pulled up floorboards in their quest for the former union leader. Hoffa last was seen July 30, 1975, outside a restaurant in Oakland County, more than 30 miles to the west. The day he disappeared, Hoffa was supposed to meet with a New Jersey Teamsters boss and a Detroit mafia captain. The latest search led police, reporters and curious onlookers to Patricia Szpunar’s brick ranch-style home in Roseville. Police in the mostly working- and middle-class community north of Detroit recently received a tip from a man who claimed he saw someone buried there about 35 years ago and that the body possibly belonged to Hoffa.

“The police have left and the yellow tape has come down,” Szpunar told The Associated Press on Tuesday afternoon. “I’m thrilled because it’s over with. No more people staring at my house, driving by, walking by, pausing to stare. I can go on with my life.” The soil samples were removed Friday after officials drilled through the floor of a shed on Szpunar’s property. Roseville police Chief James Berlin had said the ground would be excavated if decomposition were found in the samples. A tipster recently came forward and a radar test revealed a shift in the soil, both of which prompted Friday’s drilling. Berlin said the house may have been owned in the 1970s by a gambler with ties to organized crime. Hoffa was an acquaintance of mobsters and adversary to federal officials. He spent time in prison for jury tampering. He was declared legally dead in 1982. Previous tips led police to excavate soil in 2006 at a horse farm northwest of Detroit, rip up floorboards at a Detroit home in 2004 and search beneath a backyard pool a few hours north of the city in 2003. Other theories were that his remains were ground up and tossed into a Florida swamp, entombed beneath Giants Stadium in New Jersey or obliterated in a mob-owned fat-rendering plant. Szpunar said she’s just happy to have her shed back. “My son can put the motorcycle back in there,” she said. Police had put a new, more secure lock on the shed. They gave Szpunar the key Tuesday.

• Girls Soccer Troy 3, Wayne 0 TROY — On Senior Night, Troy (11-2-0) started slow but finished strong, scoring three second- half goals to emerge with a 3-0 victory over Wayne at Troy Memorial Stadium. Leah Soutar scored Troy’s first goal with 27 minutes left to play in the second half, thanks to assists by Morgan Brown and Madison Burchfield. Three minutes later, Burchfield found the back of the net with another helper from Brown, then with 14 minutes remaining in the game, Catelyn Schmiedebusch headed in a corner kick from Kina Sekito. “It kind of came down to who wanted it more,” Troy coach Michael Rasey said. “With the (weather) conditions being the way they were, we were finally able to generate some chances in the second half.” The game was a rematch of two hard-fought contests last season, with Troy falling in the regular season then knocking off Wayne with an overtime goal to win a sectional title. What awaits the Trojans now is a showdown with Sidney on Wednesday which will likely determine who wins the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division title. Tippecanoe 5, Tecumseh 0 The Tippecanoe Red Devils bounced back from an ugly nonleague loss on Saturday, outshooting its opposition 20-2 and routing Central Buckeye Conference rival Tecumseh 5-0 Monday night.

Trojans, Devils advance to district Staff Reports


Troy’s Allison Brown knew what needed to be done. “One of my players summed the day up perfectly,” Troy coach Eric Nawroth said. “Allison said, ‘When it starts raining bad like this, that’s the time to step up. Because everyone else is going to struggle.’” It’s something that Tippecanoe’s Lindsey Murray — a two-time state qualifier — already knows. “Some people don’t like those kind of conditions, but I kind of enjoy that stuff,” the Red Devil junior said. “It makes me focus more.”

Tippecanoe and Troy both sloshed their way through an incredibly wet day at the Division I Sectional tournament and qualified for next week’s district tournament. The Devils — led by medalist Murray, who won the sectional for the third straight year — were second with 352, while the Trojans were fourth with 384 Tuesday at Beavercreek Golf Course. It was Troy’s best 18-hole score of the season, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. “Words can’t describe how impressive that is, to shoot our best score when the weather was

just brutal,” Nawroth said. “It rained for most of the day, and it downpoured some. We played incredibly well in bad conditions.” Caitlin Dowling shot a 92 to lead the Trojans, Brown shot a 96, Caroline Elsass-Smith and Morgan McKinney each shot 98 and Victoria Ries shot 129. The Trojans beat Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division rival Butler — which already owned three victories over Troy this season — by eight strokes. Butler defeated Troy at the preseason GWOC tournament by 26, at the postseason GWOC tournament by 47 and during the regular season by 20.

Vikings take down Buccs in 3 Staff Reports


Cincinnati Reds third baseman Scott Rolen, top, tries to avoid the slide of St. Louis Cardinals’ Jon Jay after tagging Jay out at third during the third inning Tuesday in St. Louis.

Spoiling their fun Reds put Cardinals’ playoff hopes on hold with win ST. LOUIS (AP) Mat Latos won his fourth straight decision to finish the regular season and Scott Rolen homered off Chris Carpenter, helping the Cincinnati Reds keep the St. Louis Cardinals’ postseason plans on hold with a 3-1 victory Tuesday night. The Cardinals’ magic number for clinching the second NL wild card remained at one with a game

to go, and they were left in the uncomfortable position of watching the Dodgers on television and rooting for a loss for the second straight night. Los Angeles, which began the day two games back with two remaining, played at home against the Giants later Tuesday. Cincinnati, the NL Central champion, remained tied with Washington for the league’s best

record. The Reds need a win Wednesday and a Nationals loss to earn home-field advantage throughout the postseason. The 37-year-old Carpenter (02) has a wealth of big-game experience and went 4-0 in the postseason last fall for the World Series champions, memorably outdueling Philadelphia ace Roy Halladay in Game 5 of the NL division series.

CASSTOWN — Following its only loss of the year against defending Division II State champion Bishop Hartley Saturday, the Miami East Vikings jumped all over Covington Tuesday, winning in three games 25-13, 25-7, 25-8 and improving to 9-0 in Cross County Conference play.

MIAMI COUNTY “We did a good job bouncing back after Saturday,” Miami East coach John Cash said. “We executed well, and we were much more aggressive on our serves. We had moments Saturday when we weren’t being aggressive on our serve, and I thought we did a lot better job today of going after them.”

Tipp, Milton have success at sectional Staff Reports


Tippecanoe’s Sierra Nellessen looks poised to win her second straight sectional title. And the Division II Sectional doubles semifinals are full of nothing but Red Devils and Milton-Union Bulldogs. Nellessen swept her way into the semifinal round, while all four doubles teams held their seeds and advanced to next week’s district tournament after the rain pushed sectional tournament action indoors to Dayton Center Courts Tuesday. Nellessen — the No. 1 seed in the singles bracket — routed Kenton Ridge’s Hannah Zawada 6-0, 6-1, Greenville’s Carmen Navas-Davis 6-0, 6-0 and

Springfield Shawnee’s Megan Oxner 6-1, 6-1 to advance to the semifinal round and punch her ticket to the district meet. The Tippecanoe senior will face Greenville’s Michele Borgerding — the only player to upset one of the top four seeds in either singles or doubles play — on Saturday morning. Borgerding knocked out Catholic Central’s fourth-seeded Brenna McCombs 6-3, 6-0 to advance. The Milton-Union team of Brooke Falb and Jesica Ferguson — singles players throughout the season and the top seed in the doubles bracket — shut out Lehman’s Grace Winhoven and

Meghan Burner 6-0, 6-0, then they cruised past Dixie 6-0, 6-1 to reach the semifinals. Claire Fetters and Kayla Smith — the No. 3 seed — won three matches to reach the semifinals. They beat Bellefontaine 60, 6-0 in the first round, edged Northwestern 6-1, 7-6 (10-8) and won a battle with Lehman’s Julia Harrelson and Sarah Gravunder 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (7-3) to advance. “We’re just happy to have those doubles teams make it,” Milton-Union coach Sharon Paul said. “Brooke and Jesica played well, and Claire and Kayla had a long day. They had to win three matches — two of them tough matches — to qualify.” Tippecanoe’s Katie Stenger

and Taylor Sutton — the No. 2 seed — had a bye in the first round then cruised past Greenville 6-1, 6-3 and Urbana 6-3, 6-1 to advance. They will face Fetters and Smith.

Defense playing well, Bengals win three straight CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals have done what’s necessary to keep themselves in playoff position a fourth of the way into the season. The toughest part begins later this month. At 3-1, they’ve given themselves some wiggle room that they’ll likely need. Cincinnati remained tied with Baltimore atop the AFC North with a 27-10 win at Jacksonville, their third straight after they got drubbed by the Ravens 4413 in the season opener. The Bengals did it with a defense missing its two starting cornerbacks and an offense riding the Dalton-toGreen combination to a lot of big plays. “We’re definitely ahead of where we were last year,” quarterback Andy Dalton said on Monday. They are on offense. The

defense is something of a mess, but playing well enough to keep the winning streak intact heading into a home game Sunday against Miami (1-3). Cornerbacks Leon Hall (hamstring) and Nate Clements (calf) missed Sunday’s game with injuries. Hall, their top defender, has missed the last two games, cutting into the depth in the defensive backfield. After two tough opening games, the defense is starting to come together, improving from 29th in the league to 19th with a solid showing against Jacksonville. The Bengals had six sacks on Sunday and lead the league with 17 overall. It was a major improvement over a 38-31 win at Washington the previous week. “I think we just played

pretty well,” cornerback Terence Newman said Monday. “(Coach Mike Zimmer) has been on us pretty hard because we haven’t been playing up to the potential the guys on this team are able to play up to. All week, he’s been just pretty much down our throats and wanting us to hustle to the ball, finish plays, finish games. “Honestly, you would have never thought we had won the game last week (in Washington) when we came in the meeting on Monday. He was pretty mad.” The return of defensive end Carlos Dunlap has made a huge difference in the pass rush. Dunlap missed the first two games with a sprained knee, suffered in the first preseason game. Left end Michael Johnson had a career-high three sacks against the Redskins with Dunlap on

the other side of the line, and tackle Geno Atkins had two on Sunday at Jacksonville. “I’m really excited about Dunlap and Michael Johnson and Geno,” said defensive tackle Domata Peko, who had a sack on Jacksonville’s first play. “They’re all excellent pass rushers. In the league right now it seems like there’s a lot more passing, so you’ve got to be good at rushing the passer.” The offense has been at its best during the threegame stretch, taking advantage of teams attempting to cover receiver A.J. Green with one defender. Green had the best game of his career nine catches for 183 yards in the win against Washington, which used a lot of man-to-man coverage. The Bengals expected less man-to-man coverage by the Jaguars, who tried

■ National Football League

Washington’s approach and paid for it. Green had six catches for 117 yards, most in the second half when Dalton saw the single coverage and looked Green’s way. “Going in, we thought we were going to get a lot of (double coverage), but that wasn’t how they were playing it,” Dalton said. “He didn’t have a catch in the first quarter, then he had several the rest of the game. We keep finding ways to get him the ball.” The most pleasing development has been the play of the offensive line. Left guard Travelle Wharton tore up his right knee in the first preseason game. Center Kyle Cook hurt his right foot and ankle in the final preseason game, a significant injury that could end his season. The Bengals signed free agent Jeff Faine to replace him. They’re also starting rookie Kevin

Zeitler at right guard, leaving the middle of the line in flux. So far, it’s done a good job of protecting Dalton, who ranks fifth in the NFL with a 103 passer rating. Dalton leads the league in fourthquarter passer rating at 151.7 with four touchdowns and no interceptions. “Just the knowledge of the offense is a lot better than last year and that’s how it should be,” Dalton said. “We’ve got to keep getting better.” The Bengals are in the middle of a stretch of five consecutive games against quarterbacks who are either rookies or in their second year. The schedule gets much tougher in midOctober, starting with games against Pittsburgh, Denver and the Giants. A quarter of the way into the season, they’ve gotten the wins they needed.

Buckeyes, Spartans in a pair of spats By the Associated Press Eye gouging. Disputes over game film. Urban Meyer has quickly returned No. 12 Ohio State to prominence in the Big Ten, but he has rubbed some of his fellow coaches the wrong way. Back in February, there were complaints about his aggressive recruiting tactics. Last week, Michigan State complained that the Buckeyes had sent “incomplete” game video before their game on Saturday. Spartans defensive coordinator Narduzzi told the Detroit Free Press that Ohio State had deleted pre-snap motions and shifts before plays on video of its first four games. Narduzzi indicated that the Spartans (3-2, 0-1 Big Ten) complained to the league, though Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis said he and Gene Smith, his counterpart in Columbus, had settled the issue. Meyer wasn’t in the mood to revisit the matter Tuesday during the league’s weekly coach’s teleconference. “I’ve moved on,” Meyer said, and Dantonio didn’t want to talk about it, either. The Spartans, a preseason favorite to represent the Leaders division in the Big Ten title game for the second straight season, instead lost their second home game in three tries when the Buckeyes (5-0, 10) slipped past them 1716. “What happened on the game field on Saturday translated into winning or losing, and that’s where I’m going to leave that,” Dantonio said. Meyer has another complaint, though. He said Monday that he believed Ohio State has sent a tape to the Big Ten that appears to show a Michigan State player gouging at the eyes of

Buckeyes defensive lineman Johnathan Hankins. The short clip appears to show the Spartans’ Jack Allen or a teammate trying to thrust a gloved hand inside Hankins’ facemask. At the same time, Hankins is trying to get his fingers inside Allen’s facemask. Dantonio said Tuesday that he hadn’t heard from the Big Ten regarding the play, though he mentioned that neither Allen nor Hankins seemed bothered by whatever had happened after the play. “My review of the play saw two players get up after the play and walk back to the huddle. Probably a little something going on with both of them. If you look at the play cleanly, that’s what you see,” Dantonio said. Eye gouging, as

unpleasant as it may be, is a fact of life in football. So, too, is sharing game film in its entirety. Michigan coach Brady Hoke put it bluntly: “We share film, and they share film back.” Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald and Wisconsin’s Bret Bielema both said they’ve never had an issue like the one raised by Michigan State. Neither did a number of Big 12 coaches during their teleconference on Monday. “It’s pretty much standard issue, I think, which it is for everyone else in the country. We videotape our games the way that the Big Ten expects us to do it,” Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said. “Show the scoreboard, videotape the team basically, what would be in essence leav-

ing the huddle, going through the end of the play. And we open share with all of our opponents and we open share with the entire league as is Big Ten protocol.” Earlier this year, Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema was irked when Meyer aggressively worked to beef up Ohio State’s latest class, which included landing players who had previously given verbal commitments to other league schools. Bielema later said the two had settled their differences. Dantonio also said back then that he thought it was “pretty unethical” to aggressively pursue such players — though he later issued a statement saying those comments weren’t directed at any particular school.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Munchie Legaux has a defining drive to go with that familiar name. For the first time in his career, the junior quarterback had to lead his team the length of the field in the final minutes to pull out a win. He pulled it off by throwing a 39-yard touchdown pass with 13 seconds left for a 27-24 victory over Virginia Tech on Saturday. It meant a lot for the Bearcats (3-0), whose unproven quarterback who grew a lot in the final 2 minutes. “I proved to myself that in tough situations, I can handle it,” Legaux said on Tuesday. “What more do you want to ask for than a game like that? Down by four with a minute and some seconds left and no timeouts.” He passed the ultimate test and earned new respect from teammates who were curious to see what he would do when the pressure was on. “There was no panic at all,” offensive lineman Austen Bujnoch said. “We knew we had a great chance to win with the confidence he had. He was calm and collected. He wasn’t rah-rah. He was to the point: ‘We’re going to do

Franklin Monroe took an early 1-0 lead, but Taylor Lachey tied the score with an unassisted goal.

this thing, guys.’ You could just see in his eyes he had that determination to win.” The Bearcats have won outright or shared three of the last four Big East titles by pulling out games in the end, fabulous finishes that reference points for their quarterbacks. During the 2009 season, the Bearcats overcame a 21-point deficit in Pittsburgh for a 45-44 win and the league title. Tony Pike led Cincinnati 61 yards in 63 seconds for the winning touchdown, a 29yard pass to Armon Binns with 33 seconds to play. Last season at South Florida, Zach Collaros led the Bearcats 70 yards in seven plays, scoring on a 2yard run with 12 seconds left for a 37-34 win that helped them get a share of the title. Legaux took over for Collaros this season with one overriding question: Could he do the same thing when everything was on the line? “Like South Florida last year and Zach,” Bujnoch said. “Zach had that same look on him. I think on offense we were all waiting to see that from Munchie, and we definitely saw it from him on Saturday. His eyes he definitely had something else in him.”

sister Cassie Rice chipped in 39 digs and Abby Brinkman had 13 digs plus an ace. Troy plays Butler on Thursday. Bradford 3, Troy Christian 1 Bradford won in four games against Troy Christian by scores of 2520, 28-26, 18-25, 30-28.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 The Trojan boys (4-2-5, 2-0-1 GWOC North) are currently tied with Sidney for 10th in the latest MVSSCA poll, but even more importantly they’re tied with Butler atop the GWOC North with matching 2-0-1 records. And with Butler owning a head-tohead victory over Sidney (7-4-2, 2-1) already, the Trojans need a win over Sidney to stay in contention for a share of the division title. The three teams have tied for the GWOC North crown the past two seasons, and Troy and Butler tied 1-1 earlier this season. On the girls side, Troy (11-2, 3-0) and Sidney (112, 4-0) are the last two teams with unbeaten records in GWOC North play, meaning the winner of tonight’s game at Sidney will more than likely win the title outright. Troy Christian 3, Fairlawn 0 TROY — Troy Christian picked up a big victory Tuesday night, shutting out Fairlawn (9-3) 3-0 on a rainy night in Troy.

Chris Dickens scored two goals and had an assist, Greg Peterson had a goal and an assist and Tom Mull had an assist. The Eagles (7-3-1) travel to Xenia Christian Thursday Newton 2, Botkins 0 BOTKINS — Heavy rains didn’t stop the Newton Indians from improving their record to 10-1-2 with a big 2-0 win over Botkins Tuesday. Levi Armentrout got the Indians going with a goal early in the first half. That goal was assisted by Daniel Vance. Then late in the second half, Vance connected for a goal with the helper coming from Mitch Hussong. Newton hosts Preble Shawnee on Thursday. • Girls Milton-Union 1, Madison 1 MIDDLETOWN — Milton-Union and Madison played to a 1-1 draw Tuesday. Katelyn Krieger scored for Milton on an assist by Matison Jackson. The Bulldogs (4-7-1) play home against Carlisle on Thursday.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 And as impressive as Murray’s 73 was in the conditions, it could have been even better. “I hit a lot of shots really close, and I was putting on almost every green from within 10 to 15 feet,” Murray said. “But I misread those putts by half a centimeter a few times. I had two birdies, but it easily could

have been six or seven.” “She could have been really low,” Tippecanoe coach Scott Murray said. “Her score didn’t really reflect how well she struck the ball. She had a good round, though, and won this sectional for the third year in a row.” “The girls I was paired with helped,” Lindsey Murray said. “They all shot 73, 74, 75 — we were pushing each other.”


Centerville won the tournament and Miamisburg was third, also qualifying for next week’s district tournament — to be held at Weatherwax Golf Course Thursday. “That’s eight straight years we’ve made it out of the sectional as a team,” Scott Murray said. “Now the next level, we’ll have some things we’re going to have to overcome.

We’re going to have to play close to the level we’re capable of. We won’t have a big margin of error.” “The conditions there aren’t the best right now,” Lindsey Murray said. “Whoever can handle the conditions the best will have the best success.” Something everyone that played Tuesday knows a thing or two about.

Volleyball ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 And it showed as the Vikings pounded out 15 aces. Abby Cash led the way with eight while also adding five kills, one dig and 18 assists, Sam Cash had nine kills, one ace, a block and 11 assists, Leah Dunivan had eight kills, two aces, three blocks and one dig, Allison Morrett added an ace and five digs. Trina Current chipped in four kills, Ashley Current added two kills and a block, Allie Millhouse had five digs and Anna Kiesewetter had two digs. Miami East (18-1, 9-0) — which retained its No. 1 ranking in the state in Division III despite the loss to Hartley — plays at Bethel on Thursday. Tippecanoe 3, Graham 0 ST. PARIS — Tippecanoe defeated Graham in three games Tuesday by scores of 2523, 25-22, 25-18. For the Red Devils, Halee Printz had eight kills, two blocks, one ace and 19 digs, Erin Jans had eight kills, one block, four aces and seven digs, Hannah Losey added seven kills, two blocks and two aces, Hannah Budding chipped in with two kills, 30 assists and nine digs, while Emily Layman added 17 digs. Tippecanoe (6-10) plays at Springfield Shawnee on Thursday.

Milton-Union 3, Madison 0 MIDDLETOWN — Milton-Union traveled to Madison on Tuesday and won 3-0 in Southwestern Buckeye League Buckeye Division play. The Bulldogs won 25-7, 25-15 and 25-15. Kinsey Douglas led the charge with seven kills and three aces. Courtney Wion added five kills and Cloe Smith contributed eight digs. Milton-Union (11-4, 72 SWBL Buckeye) will play host to Carlisle on Thursday. Lehman 3, New Bremen 0 NEW BREMEN — Lehman — the No. 5 team in the state in Division IV — traveled to New Bremen on Tuesday and came home with 25-17, 25-23, 25-12 victory. “Our offense was sharp the first and third games,” Lehman coach Greg Snipes said. “The second game, we had some offensive errors. But we got some points at the end. It was good to see us finish off the game.” Andrea Thobe had 14 kills and dished out 12 assists for Lehman. Ellie Cain had 24 assists, Ellie Waldsmith had 10 kills and Olivia Slagle added six. Erica Paulus led the defense with 15 digs. Lehman (16-5) will host Parkway Monday to finish the regular season.

Tennis ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Duff 5-7, 6-4, 6-1 and Sarah Black lost to Brookville’s Jennifer Hinton 6-3, 6-0. Tippecanoe’s Katie Gross lost to Borgerding in the first round 6-3, 6-0, while Miu Tanaka lost to Brookville’s Jennifer Hinton 6-2, 6-0. Lehman’s Elaina

Snyder lost to Greenon’s Shawn McMahan 6-2, 6-1. Emily Wildenhaus lost to Northeastern’s Kaleigh Cummins 6-0, 6-0. Diana Gibson lost to Brookville’s Sarah Bowen 6-0, 6-1. The semifinal round kicks off at 9 a.m. Saturday at Troy Community Park — weather permitting.


Detroit Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera swings on a two-run single during the third inning against the Kansas City Royals Tuesday at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.

Cabrera’s quest Tigers slugger chasing after rare Triple Crown KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Miguel Cabrera sat in front of his locker in the corner of the visiting clubhouse at Kauffman Stadium on Tuesday, slinging some Spanish banter at a table full of teammates. There were no television cameras hovering over him. No microphones stuck in his face. None of the commotion that could be reasonably expected as the soft-spoken Detroit Tigers slugger closes in on baseball’s first Triple Crown in 45 years. “The entire baseball world should be here right now,” said Justin Verlander, the reigning AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner. “We’ve got, sorry to say, the regular guys. “I think he’s been rela-

tively under the radar for what he’s done, for what he’s doing. It hasn’t happened in 40-some years,” Verlander continued, his voice rising. “It kind of annoys me. I don’t know about anybody else. I don’t know about him. It probably doesn’t annoy him.” It certainly doesn’t annoy Cabrera, who will politely answer just about any question posed to him, but would just as soon spend his time hanging out with his buddies. The perfect example came Monday night, shortly after Cabrera had four hits and a home run in a 6-3 victory over the Royals that clinched the AL Central. He was asked about contributing so much to another division title, and Cabrera

deflected the attention back on his teammates. “We got it done with the first one,” he said quietly. “That was our goal.” Now, though, the spotlight shifts squarely to the broad shoulders of Cabrera, who started at third base in Tuesday night’s 4-2 loss at Kansas City. He had a pair of singles and drove in two runs in his first two at-bats before flying out to right and leaving the game in the fifth inning. Cabrera leads the American League in batting average (.331), homers (44) and RBIs (139) the Triple Crown, last achieved by Boston’s Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. Angels rookie Mike Trout and Twins catcher Joe Mauer are giving chase

for the batting title, which Cabrera won last year, while Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton trails him by a single home run. Maybe the home run mark is why Cabrera was in the starting lineup. Rather than sit on the bench and watch things play out by doing so, likely locking up the batting title Cabrera told manager Jim Leyland that he wanted to play. And he didn’t want to be the designated hitter, either. He wanted to play just as he has all season. “It’s a big thing,” Leyland said, “and it should be a big thing, and it really hasn’t gotten away from what we’re trying to accomplish, and now you feel more at ease talking about it.”

■ National Hockey League

NHL defines preseason losses as lockout drags on NEW YORK (AP) — The financial losses are starting to pile up as a result of the NHL lockout. And on Tuesday, the league made that public. In speaking to reporters after talks finished up for the day between the NHL and the NHLPA, Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly estimated that the league has lost $100 million in revenues from the canceled preseason. “Today,” he said, “was not overly encouraging.” And though they can pick up at any time, for the moment, there are no fur-

ther talks scheduled. That only further increases speculation that regular-season games could be lost, with an announcement sometime this week. The season was slated to begin Oct. 11. “We are closer by definition (to canceling regular season games),” Daly said. “We are focused on minimizing the damage.” Tuesday’s bargaining session focused on the definition of hockey-related revenue, and featured NHLPA head Donald Fehr, his brother, Steve, the special counsel to the players’ association, and Winnipeg

Jets defenseman Ron Hainsey. “They have made some incremental moves,” said Donald Fehr, who expects to informally talk with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman by Wednesday. “It’s clear that the players have made substantial moves towards the owners and the owners have made substantial moves away from the players.” As there has been throughout the process, there is still a glaring difference in opinion. “We’re looking for a long-term deal that’s fair to

the players, league and fans,” Daly said. “Certainly, we’re trying to be as creative as (we can be).” Donald Fehr did not dispute Daly’s figure of $100 million, saying “it might be a revenue number.” He did note, though, that it could be a loss without factoring in arena operating costs. Meanwhile, Steve Fehr disputed the notion that no progress had been made. “I don’t know (that) I would agree with (that) phrase,” he said. “Talks can resume anytime they’re ready.” Daly, in an email to the

Associated Press, said the league has not projected potential damage caused by the cancellation of any regular-season games. Clearly, the hope is that it won’t have to address that matter, but the clock is ticking. “What we have repeatedly tried to communicate is that we need to hear from them to move this process along,” Daly wrote in the email. “And we do think that’s the only thing that is going to allow us to gain traction. But that doesn’t mean we stop everything we’re doing and simply wait around for a

proposal. “If there is something we feel we can do to move the process forward, I’m sure we won’t hesitate to do it.” According to Daly, the sides met for close to two hours Tuesday. One aspect that could expedite the negotiations moving forward perhaps next week is mediation. And both sides acknowledged that possibility has been broached. “I’ve had that discussion with Gary, briefly,” Donald Fehr said. “There hasn’t been further discussion. We’re not averse to help.”
