Obama’s top ally in the Senate says it’s unclear which items will get votes. “I’m not positive at this time what piece of the president’s bill we’re going to do,” Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said. Instead Reid said the chamber will first debate a bundle of appropriations bills setting next year’s budgets for the departments of Commerce, Agriculture,

Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development. That’s likely to consume next week. And with the chamber taking a vacation at the end of the month, it appears that it’ll be November at the earliest before any pieces of Obama’s jobs package get a re-vote. Obama, in his first, combative appearance since Republicans and a two Democrats filibustered his jobs plan to death, promised to

The Concord Elementary School student body participated in an opportunity to set a record Wednesday for the most jumping jacks done in a certain time. The entire student body including some staff performed as many jumping jacks as they could in a minute.

Jump jacking away Concord Elementary students join effort to break record BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer


It was a typical Wednesday at school for Concord Elementary School students: read, write, eat lunch and attempt to break a Guinness World Record. Concord students joined people around the world working toward the same goal — setting Guinness World Record for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period. The challenge was to have more than 20,000 people from around the world do jumping jacks for one minute. “Are you ready to jump?” cried out Linda Lamb, Concord Elementary principal. The resounding cheers from the entire school echoed as the first set of students did their jump-

ing jacks for 60 seconds as the older students cheered them on. Joined by National Geographic Kids Magazine, First Lady Michelle Obama had the chance to launch the effort to break the record from the South Lawn of the White House on Tuesday. Yet on a playground in Troy, “Jump, jump, jump!” were the shouts of encouragement from the older students as the younger students performed their jumping jacks in the school playground. “It was a little chilly, but it was awesome,” said third grader Cheyenne Copeland after her class finished its one minute of jumping jacks. “We are just excited to participate

and be a part of this fun event,” Lamb said. “We support Michelle Obama’s effort to stress the importance of a healthy lifestyle for everyone.” After all 582 students completed their part of the event, students lingered around the playground talking about being part of the Guinness World Record effort. “You can tell they don’t want to go inside,” Lamb said. Third grade teacher Nancy Doucette said she found the opportunity while researching National Geographic Kids Magazine’s website. “I saw it online looking for science videos and I thought ‘We’ve got to do that,’” Doucette said. “The kids were really excited about it.”

The Covington Board of Education broke immediately into executive session Wednesday evening during a special meeting before returning to accept the resignation of high school secretary Christine Crawford. From there those in attendance spoke briefly on the five-year forecast for the district’s revenue, expenditures and changes to the fund balances. This was presented to board members by Treasurer Carol Forsythe in a rough draft that highlighted actual figures from 2009 to 2011 and projected future amounts. “Unfortunately, it has gotten a little bit worse instead of better,” Forsythe said in regard to numbers before the draft. She also said that with the economy being as it has been, unreadable, the forecast for revenue and expenditures on the draft are as labeled, assumptions. Those numbers included real estate taxes showing little growth due to decrease in housing market and declining property values. As is state contribution on the line if student enrollment continues to go down with an estimated 26 fewer pupils this year. • See BOARD on Page 2

keep the pressure on Congress. “Now a lot of folks in Washington and the media will look at last night’s vote and say, ‘Well, that’s it. Let’s move on to the next fight.’ But I’ve got news for them: Not this time. Not with so many Americans out of work,” he said at a White House event Wednesday recognizing Latino contributions to American history. “Not with so many folks in your communities hurting. We will not take no for an answer.” The White House is using the jobs issue as a political sword as the 2012 campaign heats up. But it will take a more bipartisan approach to actually deliver results sought by an angry public hit with 9.1 percent unemployment. Leaders of the GOP-controlled House have signaled they support

tax cuts for small businesses and changes to jobless insurance to allow states to use unemployment funds for on-the-job training. And they’ve indicated they’ll be willing to accept an extension of cuts to the Social Security payroll tax. But stimulus-style spending is a nonstarter with the tea partyinfused House and is a longshot in the Senate as well. Senate Democrats started sorting through the options at a closeddoor meeting Wednesday, but it’s just the start of a difficult process of trying to actually advance legislation rather than air political differences. One option, backed by No. 3 Senate Democrat, Chuck Schumer of New York, is to marry a tax holiday for corporations to repatriate overseas profits back to the U.S. with an Obama-backed proposal to establish a national infrastructure

bank. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., is pressing to extend payroll tax cuts. And many Democrats back infrastructure initiatives like road and bridge construction and money to rebuild schools. Obama’s plan died in the Senate even though he had been campaigning for it across the country for weeks. Republicans were opposed to its stimulus-style spending and its tax surcharge for the very wealthy. As lawmakers and the White

Third grader students Jami Loy and Camilla Ali agreed. “I think it’d really going to be cool to be in the Guinness Book of World Records,” Loy said. “It was fun coming to school and knowing we were going to try to break a record,” Ali said. “It was fun to do with the jumping jacks.”

To show the students how long a minute really is, all the children practiced their jumping jacks earlier this week. “We practiced in gym for a minute and I had to stop a few times in practice because a minute is a long time,” said third grader Caleb Fogarty. “So when we did it today, I paced myself so I wouldn’t get tired.” As part of Concord Elementary’s efforts, the school’s video and/or pictures may be featured on the National Geographic Kids website.

He said the district would “continue to look at ways to save money.” While changes to the totals can be expected, the board will approve the draft at next week’s regular school board meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Covington Middle School.

• CONTINUED FROM A1 “We would like to be in a society where everyone has equal opportunities to vote, but that’s not the reality we’re living in today,” said James Thomas Tucker, a former Justice Department attorney who is now a voting rights lawyer in Las Vegas. Tucker said the law has been key in the election of new Hispanic and Asian officials in many places, even as he noted that a vocal English-only language movement and new budget constraints on local governments could stir fresh tensions. “Some jurisdictions will see pushback,” he said. The Voting Rights Act provision, first approved by Congress in 1975, requires states, counties and political subdivisions to supply versions of ballots and election materials in other languages if a Latino, AsianAmerican, American Indian or Alaskan minority group makes up more than 5 percent of the voting-age population or at least 10,000 citizens. The minorities must be unable to speak or understand English well enough

the list to reexamine its criteria, given state and local budget crises they said will make it harder for localities to comply. They cited the case of Cuyahoga County in Ohio, which spent more than $100,000 on bilingual ballots in a light-turnout primary election last May. Localities have struggled in the past with compliance, since they are left to figure out the best ways to provide bilingual materials at a reasonable cost. Shortly before the Voting Rights provisions were reauthorized in 2006, a Pew Center on the States study found that elected officials often would “ponder the impact of implementing — or in some cases sidestepping — the federal requirements.” It cited some confusion over how many bilingual ballots to print, or what types of election materials are covered. But Pew and separate government studies said compliance often could be achieved at lower cost by hiring bilingual poll workers who perform dual functions of translation and other Election Day tasks, as well as printing sample bilingual ballots that minorities could refer to. The continuing demands for bilingual balloting come at a time when residents in the U.S. are increasingly likely to speak a language other than English at home, but who are also now more likely have lived in the U.S. for at least a decade and be naturalized citizens who vote.

to vote in elections, a proficiency level determined by those who indicate in census surveys that they don’t speak English “very well.” The minority group also should have literacy rates ranking below the national average. In all, 248 counties and other political divisions must provide election materials involving 68 covered languages, according to the list released Wednesday by the Census Bureau. The agency puts together the list based on its review of survey data on minority population growth, educational attainment and English proficiency. It was the first decline in the total number since the bureau began compiling the list with English-proficiency criteria in the 1980s. Under a separate provision of the Voting Rights Act, some 200 other jurisdictions are already required to provide bilingual material, including the entire states of Alaska, Arizona and Texas. With the newest additions this week, the total number of counties or subdivisions with requirements is more than 1 in 18. The language requirements already have drawn fire from some Republicans, who complain they are too burdensome on local governments. In a letter in August, Reps. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., who chairs a Judiciary subcommittee, and Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., who heads the House oversight panel on the census, asked the Census Bureau to delay release of

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Telegraph, London, on Pakistan and the Afghanistan war: There are tactical advances, but the strategic situation is worsening. The capture of Haji Mali Khan, one of the leaders of the Haqqani network, which the Americans believe was behind the attack on their embassy in Kabul and the bombing of a NATO base, will lift allied morale in Afghanistan. The same can be said, following the surge in troop numbers, about the gradual passing of control from foreign to native forces. But these gains are being outweighed by an increasingly poisonous political atmosphere. Just before retiring as chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen said that the Haqqani network, which operates alongside the Taliban, was “a veritable arm” of Pakistan’s top intelligence agency. The agency has also been accused of involvement in the killing of Burhanuddin Rabbani, a former president commissioned by President Hamid Karzai to open negotiations with the Taliban. Karzai has now given up on these talks, saying that the key to a political resolution of the war lies in Pakistan. He is undoubtedly right, but the view from Islamabad is quite different from that in Washington or Kabul. Looking beyond the end of the 2014 deadline for the withdrawal of NATO forces, the Pakistani government, aware of Karzai’s weakness, is hedging its bets by granting sanctuary to his opponents, whether in the Baluchi capital, Quetta, or the tribal area of North Waziristan. Behind this maneuvering lies fear of encirclement by India. Reconciliation between the two neighbors holds the key to peace but, although they reached a trade agreement, the problem of Kashmir looks as intractable as ever. Making do in what is probably the most dangerous region in the world remains the unenviable prospect facing NATO. The Vancouver (British Columbia) Sun on U.S. plans to tax cargo coming through Canada: International Trade Minister Ed Fast says he’s not worried about American efforts to reduce the volume of cargo moving through Canadian ports to destinations in the United States — including the introduction of a potential tariff of approximately $143 per container to offset a tax the U.S. imposes on containers off-loaded at U.S. ports. “The most recent development is one that is in its infancy,” he told reporters by telephone from Jakarta, where he is on a trade mission. “Right now there is no action that is being proposed. All that’s happening is that the U.S. Federal Maritime Commission has been asked to do a study.” Fast is being too optimistic. The study that counts has been done. It’s a report prepared for the U.S. Congress by the National Surface Transportation Policy and Revenue Study Commission, submitted in January 2008. One of its technical papers, Analysis of Future Issues and Changing Demands on the System, done by Global Insight a year earlier, lays out the issue of Canadian ports grabbing an increasing share of total Pacific Coast imports and of cargo ultimately destined for the U.S. Last February, Richard Lidinsky, chairman of the Federal Maritime Commission, told the House of Representatives Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure that his agency is “carefully monitoring the diversion of U.S.-bound container cargo to Canadian ports.” … Rather than trying to compete for cargo by reducing costs for shippers and improving efficiency at U.S. ports, U.S. politicians are circling the protectionist wagons. The proposal to penalize cargo from Canadian ports entering the U.S. by rail or road comes on the heels of President Barack Obama’s Buy American provisions in his American Jobs Act that would supply federal funding only to projects that use materials sourced and produced in the U.S. The stakes in this diplomatic row are high. The success of Canada’s ports, particularly in Vancouver and Prince Rupert, are key to the nation’s economic well-being.

My ‘man card’ got pulled a long time ago One thing I recently learned from watching beer commercials (Note: Most of what I learned in college came via beer commercials … which probably explains why it took me six years to get an undergraduate degree) is there are these things called “man cards.” Apparently, every man on the planet has a “man card,” and should you commit a series of acts that are, in fact, unmanly, it’s possible to get your man card revoked. I, for one, don’t fear the revocation of my man card — mostly because I’m fairly certain I was never issued a man card. The way I have it figured, I’ve spent much of the past 38 years committing entirely unmanly acts. I’m not sure exactly when I came to the conclusion I didn’t have a man card. Perhaps it came this week when I was sitting at my daughter’s dance class. Or her gymnastics class. Or her cheerleading class. Because my wife works in Dayton and I work in Troy, I am in charge of transporting Sophie Belle to her nightly activities.

David Fong Troy Daily News Executive Editor For the most part, whenever I look around at the other parents who are driving their daughters to dance, cheerleading or gymnastics, I can’t help but notice I’m the only one who possesses a Y-chromosome. This in and of itself isn’t unmanly. That’s just the way things worked out. She works far away, I work close to home. It’s what I do while I’m sitting there waiting for my daughter that’s unmanly. For the most part, I chat with the other mothers about things such as recipes, celebrity gossip and the proper bed times for our daughters. It’s gotten to the point where I actually look forward to going to gymnastics class and sharing my

meat loaf recipe. Maybe I came to the conclusion I no longer had my man card (if I ever had one) three weeks ago when our toilet broke. When my wife came to me and told me our toilet was no longer working, I responded the way any red-blooded American male would. I said, “When can your dad come fix it for us?” When my wife told me she was tired of asking her father to come over to our house and fix my messes, I came up with an alternative solution. I fixed the toilet. And by “fixed the toilet,” I really mean “discovered that you could flush a broken toilet by sticking a coat hanger inside the tank and pulling the plasic flushy part.” Ingenius? Yes. Manly? Not by a longshot. Truth be told, however, I think the point at which I realized I didn’t have a man card came two nights ago as I settled down to watch television. I was all set to watch the best show on television, “Glee,” when I found it had been pre-empted for the Major League Baseball playoffs.

I looked at my wife and said what may go down in history as the least-manly phrase ever spoken. “For crying out loud,” I said. “I can’t believe I can’t watch ‘Glee’ because baseball is on. Stupid boys and their stupid sports!” No. Seriously. I really said that. And so, loyal reader and true believer, I sit here before you a man chastened. When other men are out drinking beer and watching sports, I’d much rather be curled up on the couch watching show tunes. When other men are fixing things around the house, I’m probably on the Internet, looking for a new dance leotard for my daughter. And I’m OK with that. Now if you’ll excuse me, all of this talk of man cards has given me a headache. I think what I need right now is a bubble bath and a cup of tea to soothe my nerves.

AN OHIO COMMUNITY MEDIA NEWSPAPER 224 S. Market St. Troy, Ohio 45373 335-5634



Board discusses signs BY CECILIA FOX Ohio Community Media As LED and LCD signs become more common, the city must decide to update the sign code to keep up with the times. That is precisely what the Tipp City Planning Board decided to do at its Tuesday meeting. The sign code currently allows for LED and LCD changeable copy signs providing that the only colors used are black and white. LED changeable copy screens are available in a limited range of colors while LCD signs, while much more expensive, have no such restrictions. “Essentially the applicant has proposed that current technology does allow for red/black or amber/black color schemes, therefore under the existing sign code the applicant for changeable signage is technologically prohibited from using LED signing,” said city planner Matthew Spring. Pastor Brad Warkentine of the Tipp City Church of the Nazarene, the applicant in question, requested that the board either change the sign code or make an exception in his case. His congregation donated money for a new changeable copy sign but found their options greatly restricted by the city’s sign code and by current LED sign technology. “The city has delayed this for more than a year,” Warkentine said. “So if you’re asking to delay again, we’ve already graciously waited on you.” For the church’s sign to comply with the current black and white code, they would either have to use a more “old-fashioned” manual changeable sign — individual black letters fitted by hand onto an illuminated white board. The church also could go with the much more expensive LCD screen, which allows for a full spectrum of color, although they would be restricted to only using black and white.

TIPP CITY “I certainly understand your frustration with the process, but my frustration is we’re trying to fix here tonight something for one applicant when we’re writing code for anybody who wants to apply,” said board member Stacy Wall. Red/black and amber/black LED signs can be seen in Tipp City. These signs were installed before the current sign code was put in place. The BP gas station uses a green/black LED sign, which does not comply with either the former or current sign code. The board discussed various changes that could be made to the sign code, but a motion to recommend a specific change to Tipp City Council was defeated 3-2. The council may still hear and make a decision on the issue, but no recommendations were made by the board. At the same meeting the board reviewed the 5-year Capital Improvement Plan as presented by city manager Jon Crusey. The plan includes various construction and improvement plans for the city along with a budget for these proposed actions. This plan includes the $1.2 million renovation and expansion of the fire department in 2012, the acquisition of a new ladder truck, and upgraded technology for the EMS department. Some construction projects include the two-phase reconstruction of County Road 25A, the renovation of utilities downtown, and construction on the city sewer system, among many other improvement projects. Though the Planning Board has traditionally voted to recommend the Capital Improvement Plan to Tipp City Council, this year they simply voted to acknowledge that they had seen the plan. Members of the board cited a lack of time to review the budget as the reason for the lack of recommendation.

Delicious apple bread recipe is worth trying We are enjoying beautiful fall weather. Many, many leaves have fallen from our trees this past week, creating such wonderful autumn scenes everywhere. Along with it we have been blessed with some nice, warm sunny weather. Along with the scenery also comes some work in raking up the leaves. The younger children have been having fun making huge piles of leaves and hiding under them. On Friday my husband Joe didn’t have any work at the factory so he tilled the garden, which means that is done for the year. Sons Benjamin and Joseph also helped him haul manure to the garden and the fields. Last week the girls and I washed all the curtains and windows on the main floor of our house. Since today is another nice laundry day we are going to wash all the curtains in the bedrooms upstairs. While they are

We have been eating out on the front porch quite often this past week. A person can just sit out there and just take in all the splendid scenes that our Creator has created.

Apple season, though, is still in full swing with lots of fresh cider on the menu and plenty of apples to be made into butter and breads. This is a delicious recipe for a homemade apple bread. Last week I shared apple cake, this recipe is just as a good!

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each one. Sift together all dry ingredients and mix in. Fold in apples. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and bake 1 hour at 350. Makes one loaf.

For them, it’s all about the food a culinary odyssey that takes them from stand to stand for fried catfish and roasted corn then caramel apples and funnel cakes. “When we come to the fair, we get one order here and split it,” John Hanberry said Tuesday standing in line at the Penn’s food stand. “Then we’ll go to three or four places. The first time I bit into a Polish sausage

wearing a red shirt today, so it will work well.” Gamble is a big fan of Pronto Pups because his grandfather used to take him to a Pronto Pup stand at the reservoir 40 years ago. “This is the only place that I can find that they make them,” he said. Erica Jones has spent four days ingesting fair food. On the first day, it was one Polish sausage, one funnel cake, a corndog, a candy apple and a Coke. Then she had chicken on a stick two days in a row.

“Today, I’m having pizza and a funnel cake,” she said. If you’re looking for a new stick food, why not try the Chocolate Dipt Corn Dogs found at several stands. “They’re a novelty,” said food stand worker Steve Keith. ‘It’s like chocolate covered bacon. What people eat out here, they don’t eat at home.” Erica Harris, who works at the O’Brien’s Too stand, has sold several Chocolate Dipt Corn Dogs this time, but back by popular demand from its 2010 debut, is the

Donut Burger with a Krispy Kreme bun. Kelsie Olsteen, of Hattiesburg, unabashedly ordered one while seated in his wheelchair. “I tried it last year, and it’s just good,” he said. “It’s different. It’s not as nasty as you would think. It’s just a sweet bun. “We hear it all the time: If it doesn’t kill you, it makes you stronger. I’ve survived 12 car wrecks and a motorcycle wreck. You can’t knock (the Donut Burger) until you’ve tried it. I’ll probably get another one tomorrow.”

I grew up in North Carolina, where sausage meant spicy sage breakfast meat and was mostly sold as bulk meat, then made into patties. Delicious, but more of a side meat than a meal. When I moved to Chicago, I was introduced to the wonderful world of German, Polish and Italian sausages. I quickly fell in love with sausages of all kinds, and though they are popular all year long, they are my favorite way to celebrate fall. This recipe for hard cider-soaked apple-sage sausages is perfect for a tailgate, Halloween party, football Sunday or Oktoberfest. Everyone loves sausage, so it’s good for fans of all ages. And, if you’ve happened to go apple picking and wonder what you are going to do with all the apples, here’s the dish! Once I got the hang of the basic “brat fry,” I started experimenting with the less traditional “gourmet” sausages that are widely available today. My favorite of the new-fangled flavors is the chicken-apple sausage. This dish uses those for an uptown version of a Wisconsin brat fry. The great thing about grilling the sausages first, then simmering them, is that you can grill the sausages the day before you plan to serve them. The simmering will add flavor and re-heat the sausages at the same time. It’s also a great way to keep them warm and juicy if you are having a meal or a party where people are helping themselves and eating at different times. HARD CIDER-SOAKED APPLE-SAGE SAUSAGES If you can’t find the pre-packaged “gourmet” sausages, use a sweet Italian sausage and add chunks of apples (about 2 apples) and 4 to 5 fresh sage leaves to the simmering liquid. Serve with frosty mugs of hard apple cider and homemade hash browns. Start to finish: 45 minutes Servings: 8 2 tablespoons olive oil 3 to 4 large sweet onions, sliced 8 uncooked apple-sage chicken sausages Two to three 12-ounce bottles hard apple cider (regular apple cider also can be used) 8 hard or French rolls, warmed Spicy honey mustard or German mustard Apple-fennel sauerkraut (see recipe below) In a large stockpot over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium then continue to cook until fully caramelized, about 20 minutes. If the onions dry out too much, add several teaspoons of water. Meanwhile, heat a gas grill to medium or prepare a charcoal fire. Place the sausages directly on the cooking grate and grill over indirect heat for 15 to 20 minutes, turning occasionally to brown all over. Alternatively, you

If you are serving the sausages the next day, let them cool to room temperature and cover before refrigerating overnight. Otherwise, pour the cider into a large stockpot. Add the sausages, making sure they are covered. Bring the cider up to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat. Simmer over a medium-low heat for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the sausages have been flavored by the hot cider. Place the sausages in the warm rolls, spread with mustard and top with caramelized onions and sauerkraut. APPLE-FENNEL SAUERKRAUT Start to finish: 1 hour Servings: 10 1 large fennel bulb 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 large Vidalia onion, chopped Kosher salt 5 Granny Smith apples, grated Juice of 1 lemon 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1/2 to 1 cup hard (or regular) apple cider 2 tablespoons caraway seeds Ground black pepper Trim off the frilly top of the fennel bulb, then finely chop it and set aside. Slice the fennel bulb itself into long strips (julienne). In a large heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium, heat the oil. Add the onion and several pinches of salt. Cook until the onion begins to brown. Add the fennel strips, stir and cook, covered, for about 5 minutes, or until the fennel begins to wilt. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Meanwhile, in a bowl mix the grated apple with the lemon juice, then add it to the pan. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Add the butter, mixing well. Add the cider, reserved fennel tops and caraway seeds. Cook for an additional 10 minutes, uncovered, or until the mixture is soft and cooked down. If it needs more liquid, add more cider. It will look like sauerkraut. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside to allow the flavors to blend. The sauerkraut can be made up to 2 days in advance and kept covered in the refrigerator until ready to use. Warm just before serving.




There’s only so much you can do to mend the rift Dear Annie: Two of my married children have been in a feud for more than three years. It started with comments made about one of their children and has accelerated to the point where one won't attend a family function if the other is there. Now it is spreading to my other children, who refuse to be in the same room with feuding people. It breaks my heart. My husband and I arranged a family dinner where we suggested everyone simply forgive each other, but it didn't work. We have written letters and talked to our children individually. We even postponed our family reunion because so many of them weren't going to attend and I couldn't handle it myself. I do not know what to do and would appreciate any suggestions. — Nameless Dear Nameless: What a shame that your children cannot appreciate their sibling relationships enough to put this aside. Unfortunately, such feuds can take on a life of their own, making reconciliation harder as time passes. Everyone loses. Ask if any of the children would agree to seek family counseling with you. Those who are willing could benefit, and it will help you develop better coping skills. Continue to see your children individually, and occasionally remind them of the good times they had together when they were younger. Regretfully, there is only so much you can do in such a situation. Dear Annie: A few years back, my father, "Peter," died after a long and awful illness. Within a year of his death, my best friend decided to adopt a dog. She told me she was naming the dog after a character in one of her favorite TV shows, "Peter." I was surprised by her choice, especially since it's not a common name for a pet. It apparently didn't occur to her that it might make me uncomfortable. At the time, I didn't say anything, fearing it would seem self-involved and overly sensitive of me. However, when my mother heard about the dog's name, she was quite offended. My brother was also not happy about a dog sharing a name with a beloved family member so soon after his death. I find that I still resent my friend's choice. Too much time has passed for me to say anything now, but I am wondering whether we are right to be unhappy about this. Was it inappropriate for my friend to give her dog the same name as my recently deceased father? Or is this OK since she claims to be naming it after a completely different person? — Confused Dear Confused: Did your friend address your father by his first name? If not, the connection may not have been as obvious to her as it was to you. Or you could choose to believe that she was trying to honor your dad. And of course, it's equally possible that she is simply obtuse and insensitive. People can name their pets what they wish, and you can't help how you feel about it. However, since this still bothers you after so many years, you may as well mention how much it upset you. We suspect she hasn't a clue. Dear Annie: This is for "Lonesome," the woman who joins groups and does volunteer work, but doesn't find any lasting friendships. It may not be her. I have joined my share of groups and have found that many people simply are living in their own little world comprised of their family and immediate circle of friends. They feel no desire to add anyone else. It can be hard to make friends with people whose lives are often filled with long commutes and work hours, day care, after-school activities, caring for aging family members, etc. All you can do is keep trying. Things are not the way they used to be 20 years ago. — Not in My Own Little World Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Here’s a homemade recipe for furniture cleaner Dear Heloise: Would you please print your mother’s recipe for furniture cleaner? It works so great! — Lynne B., via email You will need the following ingredients: 1/3 cup of vinegar 1/3 cup of turpentine 1/3 cup of boiled linseed oil Mix all three ingredients together in a glass jar with a lid that is clearly labeled with the ingredients. Use a soft cloth dampened with the mixture and rub over the furniture. Afterward, polish with a clean cloth. Caution: Do not use this mixture on lacquered

Hints from Heloise Columnist furniture or antique pieces. Note: Make sure you buy linseed oil that is labeled as “boiled.” Do not boil it yourself because it is highly flammable. Also, remember to label the cleaner for storage, and keep out of reach of small children and pets. — Heloise

ENERGY SAVINGS Dear Heloise: I have two energy-saving hints for you: • Save money by turning the dishwasher off BEFORE the drying cycle starts. Dishes can air-dry, and you can save some on your electric bill. • I hang laundry outside (if weather permits) or inside, until almost dry. Then I put it in the dryer to fluff and take out any stubborn wrinkles. This is especially good for towels and jeans. — S.H. in Nikiski, Alaska EGG SALAD Dear Heloise: I don’t bake, so I don’t know why I bought a pastry cutter. I do

like egg salad and other things containing chopped eggs, and I discovered that putting the hard-cooked eggs in a bowl and chopping them up with the pastry cutter is easy. — Jackie Stone, Spring Park, Minn. CLEAN TEAM Dear Heloise: I bought an inexpensive electric toothbrush but didn’t like it because it seemed too harsh. Now I use it for cleaning sinks and tile grout. It’s really great for getting in that narrow space between and around the bathroom faucets and the backsplash. — Lee in Kingstowne, Va.



Thursday, October 13, 2011










HOROSCOPE Thursday, Oct. 13, 2011 Many influential contacts you’ve developed over the past number of years could figure into your affairs in the months ahead, in some new and different ways. It’ll prove that you should never lose contact with people who like you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Any new endeavor will have better than usual prospects for achieving success. You’ll have to work for it, however, so get moving now if you want to change your lot in life. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Making some adjustments in a situation that could affect your material security is likely to pay off. You might get the first sign of movement almost immediately. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You shouldn’t have any reluctance at this stage of the game to take on some new duties in a social organization with which you’re affiliated. The extra work will be worth it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — It’s to your benefit to motivate yourself to strive for more lofty goals than usual. Impressive targets will be the stimulating force that urges you onward during this high-achievement cycle. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Special knowledge and expertise you’ve acquired through much study and experience will be put to productive use. A multitude of avenues for expression will find you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Something you’ll be able to do best is to take outmoded systems or objects and turn them into something new and useful. Your ingenuity will even surprise you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Some kind of partnership arrangement you’re putting together is likely to grow in significance as time passes. Chances are it’ll be with someone who has been lucky for you before. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — This is a good time to remind your superiors of your accomplishments, if an opening should present itself. However, organize your thoughts before offering them. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You should take advantage of any event that could draw you closer to someone that you’ve wanted to develop a better rapport with. Making friends with this person can change your social life. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — A disruptive domestic matter that has caused you a great deal of displeasure is on its way out. Make sure meaningful changes for the better take its place. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Deep down, you’ve always known that you can achieve everything you put your mind to. This present cycle you’re in is more likely to motivate you to have the courage of your convictions. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Returns are apt to only trickle in on an endeavor that has yet to earn you any money. The early numbers might disturb you, but they will gradually grow as time passes.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Thursday, Oct. 13, the 286th day of 2011. There are 79 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 13, 2010, rescuers in Chile using a missile-like escape capsule pulled 33 men one by one to fresh air and freedom 69 days after they were trapped in a collapsed mine a half-mile underground. On this date: • In A.D. 54, Roman Emperor Claudius I died, poisoned appar-

ently at the behest of his wife, Agrippina (ag-rih-PEE’-nuh). • In 1307, King Philip IV of France ordered the arrests of Knights Templar on charges of heresy. • In 1775, the United States Navy had its origins as the Continental Congress ordered the construction of a naval fleet. • In 1792, the cornerstone of the executive mansion, later known as the White House, was laid during a ceremony in the District of Columbia.

• In 1843, the Jewish organization B’nai B’rith (buh-NAY’ brith) was founded in New York City. • Today’s Birthdays: Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher is 86. Playwright Frank D. Gilroy is 86. Gospel singer Shirley Caesar is 73. Actress Melinda Dillon is 72. Singer-musician Paul Simon is 70. Actress Pamela Tiffin is 69. Musician Robert Lamm (Chicago) is 67. Country singer Lacy J. Dalton is 65. Actor Demond Wilson is 65.

Hurricane Jova lashes Mexican coast, kills 2


Residents walk on sandbag barriers set up on a street to prevent from flooding in Pathumthani province, central Thailand, Wednesday.

Roads turn to rivers in hard-hit city AYUTTHAYA, Thailand (AP) — The lucky ones traverse this flood-submerged Thai city in navy boats and motorized canoes. The rest float on whatever they can find — inner tubes, swan-shaped pedal boats, even huge chunks of muddied white plastic foam. With large sections of Ayutthaya buried under a sea of one-story high water, rescue workers and volunteers are still crisscrossing town to pluck stranded residents from waterlogged ruins. Others are staying to protect what’s left. One boy donned a snorkeling mask to inspect his house, its corrugated roof faintly visible below the murky brown waves. “Nobody ever thought the water would rise this high,” 54-year-old Pathumwan Choichuichai told The Associated Press in the city of ancient temples just north of Bangkok, minutes after a Thai navy team snatched her family from an apartment building where they were stranded for five days. Epic monsoon rains and typhoons have battered a vast swath of Asia relentlessly this year, killing hundreds of people from the Philippines to India and inflicting billions of dollars in damage over the last four months. Thailand is among the hardest hit the floods here are the worst in half a century, claiming more than 280 lives since late July. Flood waters have swamped more than two-thirds of the country, sub-

merging rice fields and shutting down hundreds of factories. American computer hard drive manufacturer Western Digital Corp. and Japan’s Toyota Motor Corp. became the latest to suspend production in Thailand on Wednesday. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said many provinces could remain submerged for the next two months, according to state broadcaster MCOT. For weeks, water has coursed down key rivers from northern Thailand in a slow-motion catastrophe, overwhelming a national system of dams and dikes. Several days ago, floods transformed Ayutthaya into one of the country’s worst disaster zones, navigable in some districts only by boat. Images of calamity in Ayutthaya and elsewhere have fed fears that skyscraper-filled Bangkok could be engulfed by the weekend. Panicked residents of the capital cleared supermarket shelves to hoard bottled water and dried noodles, while luxury hotels packed sandbags around their perimeters. The crisis is proving to be a major challenge for Yingluck, who took power in August. Her government has not been able to give a reliable estimate of how bad Bangkok’s flooding will be. On Wednesday, though, she played down the threat, saying the capital’s inner districts will be safe. New flood

barriers built from 1.5 million sandbags in the north of the city should be finished by Thursday, she said. In Ayutthaya, a navy team passed one man clinging to a half-submerged traffic light, his cellphone and flipflops in his hands just above water that filled the entire intersection. For at least a mile (two kilometers) in the other direction — along a historic road lined with street lamps topped with gilded swans — the water levels ranged from neck deep to just under one-story high. Hundreds of boats plied the newly formed waterways, some carrying away people desperate to leave, including the elderly and at least one pregnant woman. Others were filled with people hauling supplies back to homes they hoped to protect from looters. Cars and motorcycles were submerged beneath the waves. A Thai flag poked out of the waves from city hall. At the end of the road, a traffic light blinked red as a car alarm sounded. A lone canoe paddled past the sprawling lake that was the courtyard of the city’s white-columned tourist center, a hub for visitors to the area’s Buddhist temples, treasured as a U.N. World Heritage Site. Authorities say 108 of the temples have been flooded, but there has been no word yet on whether the sturdy stone structures have suffered significant damage.

MANZANILLO, Mexico (AP) — Hurricane Jova slammed into Mexico’s Pacific coast as a Category 2 hurricane early Wednesday, causing floods, collapsing homes and triggering mudslides that killed two people and injured six before dropping to tropical storm force. Jova hit land west of the port of Manzanillo and the beach town of Barra de Navidad before dawn with 100-mph (160 kph) winds and heavy rains. It triggered a mudslide in the town of Cihuatlan, just inland from Barra de Navidad, that swept away a house on a hillside, killing two of its occupants, said Oscar Mejia, the spokesman for the Jalisco state Red Cross rescue division. Flooding was so bad in Cihuatlan the Red Cross office had to be evacuated because it was flooded with

about four feet (1 1/2 meters) of water. Farther northwest along the coast, in the town of Tomatlan, two children suffered head injuries when the walls of their brick home collapsed under the force of the wind and rains, Mejia said. Jova forced the closure of navigation in Manzanillo, Mexico’s second-biggest non-oil cargo port, flooded some neighborhoods there and brought down power lines and billboards. Israel Arriaga, 38, rode out the hurricane with his wife and two children in the Valle de las Garzas neighborhood, where at least one home collapsed and water rose waist-high. Around 2 a.m., Arriaga said “I heard a very loud noise. It was the water coming in.” There were strange flashes of lightening and “the waves sounded like a dam about to burst.”

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

Bengals’ rookie trio playing well The quarterback? A rookie. The top receiver? Rookie. The pass-catching tight end? One year removed from being a rookie. Those low expectations for the Cincinnati Bengals’ offense heading into the season were understandable.

With Detroit runners at the corners in the eighth and the score 3-all, Cruz caught Delmon Young’s fly ball to right field and made a strong peg to catcher Mike Napoli to nail Miguel Cabrera.

Devils split with Braves Staff Reports

Leah Soutar’s flip-throw deflected off of the Sidney goalie and hit the far post. Ashley Rector’s follow-up attempt smacked into the underside of the crossbar and back onto the field of play. With all of the chances Troy had to tie the game up in the final 50 minutes that didn’t find their way in, there might as well have been an invisible wall on the goal mouth.

SPRINGFIELD — Tippecanoe may have locked up the Central Buckeye Conference Kenton Trail Division title last week. But finishing an unbeaten run through league play with a blowout at Springfield Shawnee had to make it a little sweeter. Three different Red Devils (10-4-1, 10-0) scored a pair of goals and Tippecanoe recorded a shutout Tuesday night, spoiling the Braves’ homecoming with a 7-0 victory.



Troy (7-7-1, 3-1 Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division) applied relentless pressure in the second half, but Sidney stood up to it, making Taylor Rickert’s first-half goal stand up and giving the Yellowjackets their second straight outright league title after a 1-0 victory on Troy’s Senior Night at Troy Memorial Stadium Wednesday. Sidney keeper Carolyn VanMatre easily hit double digits in saves in the second half alone, the Jackets got another critical non-goalie save on one of Soutar’s flips — and the post

“We scored some great goals tonight. This was just a fun game to watch,” Tippecanoe coach Scott Downing said. Jake Maus had a pair of goals and an assist, while Logan Niswonger and Carlos Rojas each scored twice. Chase Conley had a goal, Nathan Banks had a pair of assists and Darius Appora had an assist. “They’re a very physical team, and it got a little chippy and the end,” Downing said. “Our defense played really well again tonight. “We only gave up one goal in league play after tonight.” Tippecanoe finishes off the

Golf ■ CONTINUED FROM B1 Tippecanoe coach Scott Murray said. “They won two invitationals, went undefeated in the Central Buckeye Conference, won the CBC tournament and were sectional runnersup — qualifying for the district for the eighth consecutive year.” And the future looks even brighter for the Devils, no matter how next weekend’s state tournament plays out for Murray. “The team will return its top five scores for the upcoming season,” Murray said. • Boys Division I District For Troy, Wednesday’s Division I District tournament at Weatherwax was a learning experience. The Trojans finished 16th with a score of 361 against a host of the top teams in the state. And with most of the roster returning next season, Troy will look to put that experience to use. “St. X, Moeller, Elder, Fairfield — a lot of bigger D-I schools are here that get 60-70 guys that try

Troy’s Kasey Copas fires a shot Tuesday against Sidney. ■ CONTINUED FROM B1 and crossbar helped out three times, as well. “Unfortunately, that’s the way it goes sometimes,” Troy coach Mike Rasey said. “We played well enough in the second half to, if not equalize the game, to win it. They had zero chances in the second half, and with as many as we had according the law of averages, we’ve got to get one of them in. “Give them (Sidney) credit. They hung in and played hard. Their goalie made a number of big plays.” Sidney needs only a win over Trotwood Saturday to wrap up the title, while Troy hosts Piqua for sole possession of second place the same night. The Jackets (9-4-2, 4-0) controlled the game early on, but Troy keeper Mackenzie Schulz was equally tough — until Rickert struck one from 25 yards out that snuck into the top-right corner of the goal with 17:22 to go in the first half. “The girls were tired of getting pushed around after the first half,” Rasey said. “That was probably the worst half we’ve played all season. It’s a shame that, on Senior Night, we come out as flat as we did. Sidney wanted it more than we did in the first half, that’s for sure.” And while Troy managed a few chances in the final 10 minutes of the half, it wasn’t until the second half — when Rector moved up to offense from defense — that the Trojans really turned it on.


out for golf every year,” Troy coach Ty Mercer said. “It’s a different game here, but it was a neat experience. It gives the kids something to shoot for. “They got to talk to all of these players and pick up on what makes them so good. With four of our five guys returning next year, hopefully we can build on this experience.” Connor Super led the Trojans with an 85, and freshman Dalton Cascaden added an 88. Kaleb Tittle and senior Zack Rohr each shot 94, and Cam Weaver was forced to withdraw halfway through with an injury. “This course is 7,000 yards, and by comparison Miami Shores is 6,400 yards,” Mercer said. “The conditions were good today — there was not much wind and a light drizzle, which actually helped. “There were some things they have to get used to. They’re not used to galleries of 10-20 people following them around. I think the kids enjoyed it.”

Troy’s Catelyn Schmiedebusch plays the ball off her chest in front of Sidney’s Monique Hanayik Tuesday at Troy Memorial Stadium. Rector dazzled the fans and Sidney defenders alike with her moves and speed up the sideline, creating countless chances to tie the score. “Ashley is certainly the type of player that can change a game — and she showed that tonight,” Rasey said of Rector. “She’s an exciting player, and we created an enormous amount of opportunities once she moved up. We just never could make a dent — but give Sidney credit for that.” With 32 minutes to go, Rector kicked the ball over her own head and to herself to get around a defend-

er down the sideline, then she crossed it to Kasey Copas — but VanMatre broke off her line to intercept the pass. Then Soutar sent a pair of crosses inside to Rector, but both times they couldn’t make the connection. With 8:10 to play, Soutar sent a flip-throw right in front of the goal, and VanMatre couldn’t wrap it up. It bounced off the post and came to a stop two feet in front of a wideopen goal, but Rector’s rebound attempt hit the crossbar and bounced out. With 3:05 left, Rector made a run — but the only Sidney defender near her

made a calculated foul, dragging her down from behind just outside the box to give Troy a direct kick instead of letting Rector have a breakaway. It proved to be the right move, as the ensuing kick went high. Troy had two more shots at flip-throws with one minute to play, but Sidney was able to clear both times and preserve the win — and the league title. “I just wish we would’ve played the first half the way we played the second,” Rasey said. “I don’t think the result would have been the same if we did.”

Blue Jackets still winless COLUMBUS (AP) — Gabriel Landeskog jumped once to score his first NHL goal. Then he jumped for joy. Landeskog scored with 40 seconds left on a deflection off his skate and Matt Duchene’s shootout goal was the difference in the Colorado Avalanche’s 3-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday night before 8,986, the smallest crowd to watch a regular-season game at Nationwide Arena. It was a memorable night for the 18-year-old Landeskog, the second pick in last summer’s draft. “I didn’t know if I got it. I didn’t know if it went off something else after me,”

the Swede said, grinning. “I jumped and it hit my skate and I saw that the guys were cheering. I just started jumping.” It was another disappointing ending for the Blue Jackets, who pumped up the hype and their salary cap by trading for goal-scorer Jeff Carter and signing defenseman James Wisniewski. They’re off to the worst start in their 11 seasons, 0-3-1. “It’s obviously not the way we wanted to start the year,” said Carter, acquired in a blockbuster deal with Philadelphia. “There was a lot of excitement coming into the season about the team. The fans showed that on the first night.”

Bengal rookies leading team

CINCINNATI (AP) — The quarterback? A rookie. The top receiver? Rookie. The pass-catching tight end? One year removed from being a rookie. Those low expectations for the Cincinnati Bengals’ offense heading into the season were understandable. They had one of the NFL’s youngest teams, one with playmakers who aren’t far removed from the days of singing the school fight song. They’ve stopped singing and started growing fast. The Bengals are off to a 3-2 start in large part because quarterback Andy Dalton, receiver A.J. Green and tight end Jermaine Gresham are playing beyond their years. Dalton has been cool in the biggest moments, and Green and Gresham have made incredible catches when they’re needed most. The rest of the league is starting to notice. “It shows you that they’re very talented, but very poised as well and that they have real good focus,” Indianapolis coach Jim Caldwell said on Wednesday. “For a group at their experience level, they’re playing like they’ve

■ National Basketball Association

NEW YORK (AP) — NBA owners apparently weren’t bluffing when they said they wanted competitive balance just as much as a chance to profit. Though Commissioner David Stern and Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver have insisted throughout the lockout they needed the potential for both in a new collective bargaining agreement, there was often a belief even from players that money mattered most. Yet it was the salary cap system, not the division of revenues, that emerged as the biggest obstacle to a new labor deal in time to save the start of the regular season. “The numbers are close enough that that wasn’t going to doom the season. The hard salary cap is what’s going to doom the season right now,” players’ attorney Jeffrey Kessler said Monday. “That’s the sticking point, because the numbers are close enough that if there was a fair system, the parties would find a way to get there.”

That’s not what union president Derek Fisher had predicted less than a month earlier. Talks had broken down after a meeting in September in which players were prepared to make a new economic proposal, but the league said players conditioned it on owners conceding on the salary cap. It was clear the union believed management was prioritizing the financial picture when Fisher said afterward that “if we can address these economics, we’re not going to lose the season over the system. So that’s something that’s been clear from the beginning and will remain from our perspective.” The split was never settled, but both sides say they see where compromise could be reached. Players had proposed lowering their guarantee of basketball revenues from 57 percent down to 53, which they said would transfer more than $1 billion to owners over six years. But in doing so, they expected something in return.


Money not main issue in lockout


Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton warms up prior to a game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Sunday in Jacksonville, Fla. been in the league three, four, five years. They’re doing it well.” The trio will be a focus on Sunday when the Bengals play the Colts (05) at Paul Brown Stadium before another less-thancapacity crowd. It will be one of Dalton’s best tests so far, given the Colts’ reputation for putting pressure on the passer. “I think they react really well to some things and they’re a fast-flow defense,” said Dalton, a

second-round pick from TCU. “So I think there are areas where we can attack and find some matchups that we like.” Their best matchups involve whoever is guarding Green and Gresham. Green, the fourth overall pick from Georgia, ranks 13th among NFL receivers with 402 yards. He’s 21st with 24 catches; Gresham ranks 37th with 21 receptions. They’ve come up big in the last two games.

Green had four catches for 118 yards during a 2320 comeback win over Buffalo. Gresham had four catches for 70 and a onehanded touchdown reception. Dalton scored on a draw play to tie it with less than 5 minutes left, then dived for a first down to set up the winning field goal as time ran out. Last week, Dalton pulled off a second straight winning drive for a 30-20 victory in Jacksonville. Green had five catches for 90 yards an acrobatic touchdown. Gresham also had five catches and an impressive touchdown. Dalton and Gresham pulled off the saving play in the closing minutes. Facing a fourth-and-6 from the Jacksonville 19, Dalton scrambled away from pressure and threw a 9-yard completion to Gresham, who had to stretch high and away to pull it in. Three plays later, the Bengals scored for a 23-20 lead. That’s not the norm for players so young. “We do have some pretty good chemistry for just being around each other for a couple months,” Dalton said on Wednesday.
