Missing Troy man, 55, found dead Officials: No foul play is suspected

Romney, Obama get feisty in second debate

Aaggressive President Barack Obama accused challenger Mitt Romney of favoring a “one-point plan” to help the rich and leveling offensive criticism about the recent deadly terrorist attack in Libya Tuesday night in a debate crackling with energy and emotion just three weeks before the election. Romney pushed back hard, saying the middle class “has been crushed over the last four years,” that 23 million Americans are struggling to find work and that the death of the U.S. ambassador to Libya was part of an unraveling of the administration’s foreign policy.

The weather for the 10 a.m. dedication ceremony Monday was cold and blustery, but the Adams Street Bridge was warmly received by Miami County residents. “We thank you for coming out on this rather chilly day, but a beautiful day — a historic day,” said Troy Mayor Mike Beamish. Following roughly 16 months of construction, the bridge — costing more than $6 million — is now open to the public. Miami County Engineer Paul Huelskamp, former county engineer Doug Christian and ODOT Deputy Director Randy Chevalley — who called ODOT “the big brother in the project” — also gave their remarks

TROY regarding this historic day in Troy. “I just have to wonder what this place looked like 136 years ago,” Christian said, referring to the first bridge in that location over the Great Miami River, constructed in 1876. This initial structure was replaced in 1913 and then later reconstructed in 1922. Then in 2004, a study found deterioration that made renovation impractical, and thus local officials began planning to replace the bridge, including procuring federal money to fund the project. In the end, about 80 percent of the construction costs were paid for by federal funds. The structure unveiled Monday

was built with historic character in mind. Two plaques from the former bridge were refurbished for the new one. For the first time, the bridge incorporates the bike path. “I’m looking forward to it from a cycling standpoint,” said city councilman Tom Kendall, who was a part of the crowd. “We’ve been having to go around (use the detour) to make the connection.” Following the remarks, Beamish — flanked by other city officials — cut the ribbon across the bridge and conducted the ceremonial first crossing. “The bridge is officially open,” he proclaimed. A celebratory cake and other sweets awaited attendees under a tent along the levee.

Sidewalk project sparks concerns





Sidewalk assessments for the upcoming North Market Street project — approved at the last council meeting — drew concern from a few residents at Monday’s Troy City Council meeting. Council voted Monday to move forward on appointing an assessment equalization board that will handle all written objections to the project. Two Troy residents on North Market Street asked whether the city would be providing residents with square footage

TROY estimates and corresponding costs, adding that it seems unfair to charge residents for repairing sidewalks that they say are fine as is. Director of Public Service and Safety Patrick Titterington said bids would be set later this year or early next year, with the project expected to take six to eight months. Having a contractor also ensures the project is completed as efficiently as possible, he added. “We have it phased so we don’t have to lose a

road entirely, or at least only for a very, very brief time,” he said. Eric Weaver, owner of Splish Splash Auto Bath at 702 N. Market St., also voiced his concerns about the negative effect construction would have on his business, stating that the city needs to be providing more information to homeowners and business owners alike. “Lack of information is the scariest part,” Weaver said. “…I think we need to work together, businesses and the city.” Titterington responded that the city will be passing along more information as it becomes avail-

able, while seeking input from residents. “We do have every intention of having neighborhood meetings once we have better, more final information,” he said. In scheduled council business, members approved all legislation including: • A two-year contract with The Rozzi Company, Inc., for Fourth of July fireworks, costing $31,500 per year. • The bidding of lime ($257,400), limestone/ aggregate ($35,650) and asphalt materials ($44,100).

Ludlow Falls resident Tom Maguire survived a 50-foot fall late Monday morning. The ham radio operator was realigning his antenna when his foot slipped, according to Ludlow Falls Fire Department Chief Greg Bridenbaugh. Maguire, 71, fell 30 feet, hit his garage roof, then rolled off to the ground. He had to be taken by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital. Maguire suffered a brain bleed, broken arms, cracked ribs, broken vertebrate and concerns with his eye socket and knee. Maguire remains hospitalilized in fair condition, according to a Miami Valley Hospital spokesperson. “He took a pretty good fall and had substantial injuries,” Bridenbaugh said. He commended Union Township Life Squad for a “very good job,” saying if Maguire had been moved in the wrong way, it could have been fatal.

Obama, Romney get fiesty in second debate HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) — An aggressive President Barack Obama accused challenger Mitt Romney of favoring a “one-point plan” to help the rich and leveling offensive criticism about the recent deadly terrorist attack in Libya Tuesday night in a debate crackling with energy and emotion just three weeks before the election. Romney pushed back hard, saying the middle class “has been crushed over the last four years,” that 23 million Americans are struggling to find work and that the death of the U.S. ambassador to Libya was part of an unraveling of the administration’s foreign policy. The president was feistier from the outset than he had been in their initial encounter two weeks ago, when he turned in a listless performance that sent shudders through his supporters and helped fuel a rise by Romney in opinion polls nationally and in some battleground states. Obama challenged Romney on economics and energy policy, accusing him of switching positions and declaring that his economic plan was a “sketchy deal” that the public should reject. Romney gave as good as he got.

President Barack Obama speaks as Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, listens during the second presidential debate Tuesday, at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.

“You’ll get your chance in a moment. I’m still speaking,” the former Massachusetts governor said at one point while Obama was mid-sentence. He said the president’s policies had failed to jumpstart the economy and crimped energy production. The open-stage format left the two men free to stroll freely across a red-carpeted stage, and they did. Their clashes crackled with energy and tension, and the crowd watched raptly as the two sparred while struggling to appear calm and affable before a national television audience. The rivals disagreed about taxes, measures to reduce the deficit, energy, pay equity for women and health care issues. Immigration prompted yet another clash, Romney saying Obama had failed to pursue the comprehensive legislation he promised at the dawn of his administration, and the president saying Republican obstinacy made a deal impossible. Under the format agreed to in advance, members of an audience of 82 uncommitted voters posed questions to the president and his challenger. Nearly all of them concerned domestic policy until one raised the

Duchak said autopsy reports will be released in six-to-eight weeks. “We are not finding any evidence of foul play at this time,” Duchak said. Duchak said local law enforcement agencies set up a command center at Brush Creek Church of God to continue the search for James. More than seven canines were part of the search and ultimately led officials to James’ location, Duchak said. A blanket and an umbrella was among items found near the scene prior to the discovery of James’ body. Family identified the

When is a person considered missing? Captain Joe Long of Troy Police said a waiting period of 24 to 48 hours for police to begin searching for a missing person is a myth. In the case of Thomas James, family members reported the man missing within several hours of being unable to locate him last Sunday. “It is a myth that we wait for any period of time,” Long said. “An adult can be missing, just like a juvenile, as long as certain criteria are met because an adult can come and go as they please.” Long said the manner of which James’ disappearance was unusual, therefore, an alert was sent to area agencies to be on the lookout for person after a few hours of his disappearance. “We talk with the family and deem if anything is out of the ordinary or out of character for the person and go from there,” Long said.

• CONTINUED FROM 1 both Mayor Dee Gillis and Councilwoman Katelyn Black were absent and Councilman Bryan Budding voted no. Since all council members were in attendance at the Oct 15 meeting — and Budding cast the only nay vote — there were enough yes votes for the ordinance to become effective immediately. At the last meeting, Budding asked what the city would accomplish by extending the moratorium, saying, “For me, I think our direction should actually be putting legislation on how they are going to be regulated.” Council President John Kessler explained that, since the state has not yet determined how to regulate this type of business, Tipp City should not make any laws regulating them. Otherwise, the city runs the risk of having those laws invalidated when the state makes a decision. Council also approved several ordinances issuing bond anticipation notes for four upcoming construction projects: The South Third Street reconstruction project, the renovation and expansion of the Fire/EMS station, the Utility Downtown Replacement project, and the Roselyn subdivision water and sewer line replacement project. The first ordinance authorizes the issuance of up to $536,000 in bond anticipation notes for the non-utility portions of the South Third Street reconstruction project, which is currently under design. The project should be out to bid late this year and construction is expected to

begin early next year. The budget for the project is $721,750 and other funding for the project will come from the water and sewer funds. The five-year CIP predicts that this debt will be paid off in 2017. Council also authorized the issuance of bond anticipation notes for the renovation and expansion of the fire and EMS station for up to $1.9 million, which includes the cost of the design and engineering services as well as the construction costs. The project will be put out to bid this winter and is currently under design. The third ordinance authorizes the issuance of up to $350,000 in bond anticipation notes for the Downtown Utility Replacement Project. The project is expected to cost $1.2 million and other funding will come from loans and grants from the Ohio Public Works Commission and the water and sewer fund. The construction will include a new water main, replacing sanitary sewers, building a storm sewer and repairing roads and sidewalks impacted by the work along Main Street between Fourth and First streets. And the final ordinance issues up to $530,000 for the replacement of water and sewer lines in the Roselyn subdivision on Michael Street, Judith Street and Earl Street. The project is under design and will be out to bid later this year with construction scheduled for early 2013. Those streets are also scheduled to be resurfaced in 2014 as part of the street resurfacing program.

subject of the recent death of the U.S. ambassador to Libya in a terrorist attack at an American post in Benghazi. Romney said it took Obama a long time to admit the episode had been a terrorist attack, but Obama said he had said so the day after in an appearance in the Rose Garden outside the White House. When moderator Candy Crowley of CNN said the president had in fact done so, Obama, prompted, “Say that a little louder, Candy.” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has taken responsibility for the death of Ambassador L. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, but Obama said bluntly, “I’m the president and I’m always responsible. Romney said it was “troubling” that Obama continued with a campaign event in Las Vegas on the day after the attack in Libya, an event he said had “symbolic significance and perhaps even material significance.” Obama seemed to bristle. He said it was offensive for anyone to allege that he or anyone in his administration had used the incident for political purposes. “That’s not what I do.”

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Loveland (Colo.) Reporter-Herald on flip-flopping in politics: Anyone who has watched a basketball game has likely seen what is casually known as “the flop.” The player with the ball makes contact with a standing defender or a defender who leaps to block or prevent a shot toward the rim, then one of the players makes a dramatic fall to the floor, hoping an official will see the result of what must have been an egregious foul. When the call is made against a player who was within the rules, the “flop” succeeds. This year, the National Basketball Association is going to try to do something about the unfairness. After games, league officials will look again at video of action on the floor, and if a player is suspected of having committed a flop, he will first be warned, and on subsequent offenses be required to pay a fine. Now, gamesmanship at the expense of the truth will have a cost. This political season, candidates, parties and outside interest groups have each seemingly tried to take a flop. For instance, Republicans have tried to paint the Obama administration as heartless for the fact that the Affordable Health Care act anticipates a reduction of growth in Medicare of more than $700 million. The budget proposed by vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan makes that same accounting move. Of course, anything the Democrats want to feel aggrieved about in the budget is a flop, too; the Democratled Senate has not taken up its duty to pass a budget in several years, so of course it’s easy to fault the other party. Where it gets tricky is finding out who will be the enforcer for the flops. Unlike the NBA, there’s no commissioner’s office where violators can be issued punishment. It’s up to voters, who should take with a grain of salt the claims coming from candidates and parties. Midland (Mich.) Daily News on federal unemployment figures: Is it good news or are the numbers fudged? That’s the debate raging in the aftermath of the most recent report on the country’s unemployment rate. According to the latest statistics, the nation’s unemployment rate fell below 8.0 (to 7.8 percent) for the first time since January 2009. The Labor Department said that employers added 114,000 jobs in September. The economy also created 86,000 more jobs in July and August than first estimated. Wages rose in September and more people started looking for work, the Labor Department reported. But many say the numbers are being spun to help Obama’s re-election bid, with less than a month remaining to Election Day. The Wall Street Journal downplayed the report, saying to “take it with a grain of salt.” Ways and Means Republicans sent an email to the media, presenting 10 points that refute the Labor Department’s most recent report. Among the points mentioned include the following: If the unemployment rate included the “invisible unemployed” (discouraged workers who dropped out or never joined the workforce), the September 2012 unemployment rate would be 10.9 percent; and, during the Obama administration, the number of people not in the labor force has grown by 8.2 million while total employment has grown by less than 800,000. This means that during the Obama years new workforce dropouts have outnumbered new employees by 10 to 1, according to the email. This is the election season during a hotly contested presidential race. And this is what happens — spin. When you get down to it, the only analysis that really matters is what comes from you, the voter. Do you believe the economy is improving and brighter days are ahead? The answer to that question should help you to decide who to vote for on Nov. 6.

I’m out of the loop when it comes to TV I think my ignorance of popular television shows is beginning to affect my social life. I’m not sure when I actually fell off the bandwagon, but I didn’t fully realize it until a couple weeks ago when my coworkers were all riled up to watch “New Girl.” All eyes were glued to the TV in the office. All eyes except mine. For anyone entirely unaware like me, “New Girl” features the “adorkable” girl-next-door Zooey Deschanel, who lives with three male roommates. At least that’s what told me after a lazy Google search. Of course, I have stolen a few glances at the TV when everyone else is watching during primetime, but it’s a little hard to dive into a show midway through a season. Not to mention that I used to mix up the HBO series “Girls” — about a group of twenty-somethings living in NYC — with “New Girl.” As a former New Yorker (I use that term loosely considering I lived there only seven months), I guess I better start tuning into “Girls” soon and revel in all the Gotham glory. I didn’t use to be so out of the loop pop-culture wise, but

Natalie Knoth Troy Daily News Columnist you could say few shows have kept me intrigued throughout the years. Beginning back when I was 5, I’d watch “Full House” religiously, and then when I was in junior high, the “O.C.” was all I’d care to watch. In fact, an old roommate had all the seasons on DVD. I’m unashamed to say we’d spend many a winter night hibernating with the always-dramatic California crew. I also was an “America’s Next Top Model” junkie, but I won’t go into that. Fast forward to my junior year of college, when my friends and I would spend hours devouring seasons of “The Office.” How can you not chuckle at Michael’s awkwardness and live vicariously through Jim and Pam’s rela-

— Ruth Burk Orlando, Fla.

tionship? Not to mention Dwight is absolutely ridiculous. But after life got busier — right around the time Steve Carell left — I stopped watching. I then started picking up “Two and a Half Men,” a show that, as a feminist, I hate to love. Yet again, after the lead actor Charlie Sheen left and Ashton Kutcher took over, I stopped watching. Occasionally I’ll pick it up again, but I can’t get into it — and can’t get past the fact that the kid is no longer, well, a kid. I guess it’s been a really long time since I’ve tuned in. Last year, I got Netflix for the first time so I could watch TV shows in my room, as I found that with three other roommates, I had merely a 25 percent chance of getting to control the TV remote in the common area. They loved “Dexter,” and I of course had never watched a single episode. With my Netflix subscription, I became entranced by “How I Met Your Mother,” a show I had watched maybe only a couple times before. Starting from season one, I worked my way through to the end, but I think the

last couple seasons are not added to the Netflix selection yet. I remember finally being able to understand the hilarious one-liners my friends would quote from ladies-man Barney Stinson. But even better was the fact that I had finally found a show and characters to which I could relate. (Well, besides Barn ey.) It’s a show about finding your place in the confusing “Who am I supposed to be?” young-adult world. I think TV should serve two purposes: a) to make your own life seem more normal and b) to find humor in trying circumstances. HIMYM does a brilliant job of accomplishing both. For now, I need to catch up on the latest HIMYM episodes (CBS website or Hulu?) and hopefully also get up to speed on “New Girl,” if only to not be ostracized in the workplace. I’m also hoping to watch every single episode of “Friends” eventually — shamefully, I’ve watched only a handful. Don’t judge. Natalie Knoth appears every other Wednesday in the Troy Daily News

here’s no place like home.” “There’s no place like home.” Remember those lines from The Wizard of Oz? Well, in some ways they’re right on the money. There really is no place on Earth like the continent you call home. North America is made up of Canada, the United States, Greenland, Mexico, Central America, and the islands of the Caribbean. Although the continent was inhabited by Indians for thousands of years before it was settled by Europeans, most of

North America is the third largest and fourth most populous continent. And if you want evidence of the world’s diversity, this is the place to look. There are people from just about every different cultural and ethnic background; there are great rivers, high mountains, grassy plains, and expansive deserts; there are huge, modern cities,

and tiny, primitive villages. North America is also the richest continent in the world. It has more useful and valuable resources than any other. North America is the only continent that has every kind of climate in the world, from the bitter cold of the Arctic to the steamy tropics. Most of the people in the United States and Canada, and many in the Caribbean islands, speak English. In the rest of the continent, Spanish is the dominant language.

Sounds like ‘Larry’ could benefit from professional assistance Dear Annie: My husband's only sibling is his 65-year-old brother, "Larry." Larry's mother spoiled him rotten. To say he's lazy is an understatement. He does nothing to help himself. He was fortunate enough to win a local election when he ran unopposed, and he held that office for 30 years. I doubt if he put in 20 hours a month. Two years ago, Larry retired, drawing a pension and Social Security. He says he can hardly make it. He inherited his mother's home and land and has done nothing to tend it. He has a few cows, but he doesn't care for them. They got out onto his neighbor's land, and they issued a complaint. Now they don't speak. His mother's house is falling down around him. He was forced to put on a new roof because the leaking caused the ceilings to fall in. There is no heat or air conditioning in the house. He has not had a working indoor toilet for 20 years. You cannot open the windows because of all the junk in the house. Years ago, my husband said he'd repair the heater if Larry would clean up the mess around it, but he hasn't touched a thing. He uses an electric blanket for warmth. He has no water because when the pipes froze two years ago, he cut off the water to the house and hooked up a hose to an outside faucet. He hasn't cut his hair since he retired, and he seldom shaves. It makes us sick to look at him. We have offered to help Larry, but we expect him to put in some effort. He often tells us he should have taken our advice, but whenever we talk to him, he stares and ignores us. I think he's waiting for someone to take care of him while he sits and smokes his cigarettes. We're afraid to take on the job of caring for him because then he'd expect us to do it forever. How do we handle this? — The Sister-inLaw Dear Sister-in-Law: Larry sounds like a hoarder. Along with the lack of personal grooming, it seems more like depression or mental illness than sheer laziness. This may not make it easier to deal with, but it could change your response. Please contact the International OCD Foundation ( for information and help. Dear Annie: What is proper etiquette for gift giving and receiving? Is it rude to say, "Don't buy me presents. I don't want anybody else picking out my things. Just give me money, and I will do my own shopping"? That takes all the pleasure out of giving for me, plus it sounds more like extortion. If it is proper etiquette, how much should one give? Society has changed so much in the past 50 years that I no longer know if this is someone raised without manners or if it's OK to ask for money. — Need To Know Dear Need: It is still poor manners to tell someone that you expect a present and that they should give you money so you can buy it yourself. You are under no obligation to follow these instructions. If you choose to give money (or any gift), how much you spend is entirely up to you. Dear Annie: "Florida Greetings" complained about the "high cost" of a postage stamp to justify emailing instead of writing. How petty. With the price of gas around $4, a loaf of bread more than $2 and a gallon of milk at least $3, a mere 45 cents may be the best bargain in town. Even with a fixed income, I manage to send notes to others who may have a brighter day because they found something other than bills and junk mail in their mailbox. When I can send something to California for less than half a dollar, I am grateful. — Still Writing in Indiana Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

The heat is really on for canned goods Dear Heloise: Is it safe to store canned foods in my garage? This past summer, the heat rose to 95 degrees F and higher in our area. Does heat affect the contents? I am very concerned. — Kay N. in California Kay, although many people store canned foods in a garage, it is not safe to store cans in the garage, over a stove, under a sink, in a basement or in an outside shed. The United States Department of Agriculture states that canned foods should be stored in a cool, dry place with no extremes of too-high or too-low (freezing) temperatures. Any drastic changes in tempera-

Hints from Heloise Columnist ture can affect the can and the food itself. Try to keep all canned foods at or below 70 degrees F. — Heloise CONDIMENT RESPONSES Dear Readers: In a recent column, we asked readers for wacky condiment combinations they create. Here are some of

the responses: • Barbara G. in Pennsylvania wrote: “Ketchup + mayo + pickle relish = Russian dressing.” • JoAnn B. in Nebraska wrote: “Salad dressing (Heloise here: product that is like mayonnaise) + ketchup = secret burger sauce.” • Lise, via email, said: “Ketchup + horseradish sauce = cocktail sauce. For a spicier mix, add crushed red pepper to taste.” • Monica L. wrote: “Salad dressing + ketchup + relish = Thousand Island dressing.” — Heloise COOKIE CARVINGS Dear Readers: Fall is a sea-

son with tons of fun activities for you and your family. But pumpkin carving, while it’s a classic, isn’t always safe. Gut the pumpkin while the kids pick out a few metal cookie cutters. Allow them to press the cookie cutter into the pumpkin. Then, using a rubber mallet, tap until it is completely pressed in. Leaving the cookie cutter there, carve around it with a knife, removing the metal and the unwanted piece of pumpkin together. You can continue adding character to your pumpkin until your family is happy. Add a battery-operated tea light and enjoy! — Heloise















BY FRANCES DRAKE For Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You have the gusto and energy to discuss or argue practically any topic today, especially politics, religion or anything that is “way out there.” You sound like an expert! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might get involved in a lively debate about shared property, taxes, debt or anything you own jointly with others. If this is the case, you will defend your turf — no question. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Others are unusually aggressive in discussions with you today. Don’t think you can get away with anything, because you can’t. (You’ll see.) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You’re gung-ho to accomplish as much as possible at work today. This is why you won’t hesitate to delegate and issue orders to others. Build that bridge! Move that mountain! LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a playful day, and it’s also a very flirtatious day, in fact, aggressively so. You feel saucy and prankish! This is also a strong day for you if you play sports. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You’re ready to move furniture around or do whatever is necessary to make changes at home. You want to improve the place, and you’ve got the energy to do so. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You’ll be unusually convincing if you have to sell, promote, teach, act or market anything today, because you’re highly opinionated and not afraid to express your views. Look out, world! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You’re very determined when it comes to issues regarding earning money or developing moneymaking ideas. You might be equally as determined when it comes to spending money as well! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Today the Moon is in your sign, lined up with Mars and Jupiter. This is why you are intellectually energetic and so enthusiastic. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Research of any kind will go extremely well today. Go after whatever you need to learn about or discover, because you likely will find it! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) All group meetings and gatherings will be quite successful today, especially those related to sports and physical activities. Rally your troops, and they will support you! PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You can make an excellent impression on authority figures today, because they see you as proactive and confident. And today, you are! Go do that voodoo that you do so well. YOU BORN TODAY You often are involved in the drama in your own life or the lives of those around you. Many of you are leaders, and many of you find fame and fortune. Above all, you like to have fun with others. In turn, people feel inspired by you. You are very direct and forthright. Your year ahead is beautifully social and beneficial for all relationships. Birthdate of: Zac Efron, actor; Martina Navratilova, tennis player; Thomas Hearns, boxer.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Wednesday, Oct. 17, the 291st day of 2012. There are 75 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 17, 1777, British forces under Gen. John Burgoyne surrendered to American troops in Saratoga, N.Y., in a turning point of the Revolutionary War. On this date: • In 1610, French King Louis XIII, age nine, was crowned at Reims, five months after the assassination of his father, Henry IV. • In 1931, mobster Al Capone was convicted of income tax evasion. (Sentenced to 11 years in prison,

Capone was released in 1939.) • In 1933, Albert Einstein arrived in the United States as a refugee from Nazi Germany. • Ten years ago: Ira Einhorn, the ’70s hippie guru who’d fled to Europe after being charged with murder, was convicted in Philadelphia of killing his girlfriend, Holly Maddux, and stuffing her corpse in his closet a quartercentury earlier. (Einhorn was later sentenced to life without parole.) • One year ago: Rolling through small Southern towns in a campaignstyle bus, President Barack Obama pressed lawmakers back in Washington to start taking up pieces

of his rejected jobs bill and mocked the Republicans who had shot it down in toto. Financier Carl Lindner Jr., who used his experience running the family dairy store to build a business empire whose reach included baseball, banks and bananas, died at age 92. • Today’s Birthdays: Newspaper columnist Jimmy Breslin is 82. Country singer Earl Thomas Conley is 71. Actor Michael McKean is 65. Actress Margot Kidder is 64. Actor George Wendt is 64. Country singer Alan Jackson is 54. Reggae singer Ziggy Marley is 44. Rapper Eminem is 40.

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

• Boys Soccer Troy Christian 1, Miami Valley 0 TROY — Troy Christian scored its biggest victory in four years Monday night Chris Dickens took a feed from Greg Peterson and scored the game’s lone goal, giving Troy Christian a 1-0 victory over Miami Valley Monday to open Division III Sectional tournament play. “It was our first tournament win in four years. We’re pretty stoked,” Troy Christian coach Ryan Zeman said. “Logan George had a great game in goal, as well.” Fairborn 1, Piqua 0 PIQUA — The Fairborn Skyhawks put a premature end to Piqua’s season — but they needed two overtime periods to do it, picking up a 1-0 victory in the Division I Sectional tournament’s opening round. • Girls Soccer Miami East 1, Milton-Union 0 CASSTOWN — Miami East finished out their regular season not just with a 1-0 win over Milton-Union, but with its 15th win of the season. That mark breaks the school record for wins in a season — which the Vikings tied last season with their win in the district finals. While the Vikings controlled possession the first half, they only got two shots off on goal. At the other end, Maddie Linn had two saves in the first half for East. But with 18:50 left to play in the second half, Katrina Sutherly crossed one far post that Lindsey Roeth walked into the goal. Linn recorded her 12th shutout of the season. “Tonight was definitely a team effort,” Miami East coach Lil Carson said. “We kept possession well the whole game, just didn’t create many opportunities on frame. Defensively, we were solid. We kept our composure and we really limited their chances.” Miami East (15-1) hosts Triad in the first round of tournament play tonight. • Volleyball Butler 3, Piqua 1 TROY — Butler beat Piqua in the regular season. The Indians got revenge in the Greater Western Ohio Conference tournament. But the Aviators got the last laugh, knocking Piqua out of the Division I Sectional tournament with a 3-1 win Monday night, 2519, 22-25, 25-22, 25-19. Lehman 3, Ansonia 0 PIQUA — Lehman — the No. 4 team in the state in Division IV — had no trouble against Ansonia Monday night, winning 25-4, 25-3, 25-11 to reach the DIV Sectional championship game.

Pressure is on Nellessen seeking 1st win at state BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor Even when she was a freshman, nerves weren’t a problem for Sierra Nellessen. At least not that she recalls. “I remember being up 3-0 in the first set,” Nellessen said of her 2009 trip, where she took on then-senior Alex Power from Olentangy Liberty. “I wasn’t nervous at all. She had everything to lose. It was her last chance there, while me, I was just a freshman. I was like, ‘Oh, wow, this is cool! I’m at state! What’s going on?’” Now Nellessen is on the other side of that equation. The Red Devil senior is making her first trip back to state since losing to the more experienced Power 6-3, 6-2 in the first round. She will be looking for her first victory at the state level Friday morning at Ohio State STAFF FILE PHOTO/ANTHONY WEBER against Oak Harbor senior Tippecanoe senior Sierra Nellessen will make her second career Ashley LaFountain. trip to the state tournament Friday. “Now the pressure’s on me,”

Mike Holmgren won’t be finishing the job he went to do in Cleveland. New Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam III said Tuesday that Holmgren was out as team president, although the Super Bowl-winning coach will remain with the franchise to help in the transition. Haslam was introduced as the Browns’ new boss after the 32 NFL owners unanimously approved his $1 billion purchase of the team from Randy Lerner. See Page 16.

Trojans take 2nd at Yellow Springs Staff Reports YELLOW SPRINGS — Troy was able to finish second at the Yellow Springs Invitational on Tuesday despite giving their top five runners the day off. “We didn’t run our top five, so second was a good finish for the team,” Troy coach Bob Campbell said. The Trojans had three runners finish in the top 10. Alex

YELLOW SPRINGS Meier finished fourth (18:21), Josh Spayde finished fifth (18:27) and Nathan Fleischer finished seventh (18:31). “Alex, Josh, and Nathan got out strong and stayed up fron the whole race,” Campbell said. Also for Troy, Bryce Meier finished 33rd (19:33), Patrick McGail was 48th (20:12), Alec Prus finished 49th (20:14) and Carsen Clouser placed 63rd (20:36). “The focus now,” Cambell said, “is a strong, smart race by the varisty seven at the district meet on Saturday morning.” The Trojans run in the Division I District Saturday at Miami Valley CTC.

Nellessen said. “Now it’s my last chance.” No matter how Nellessen’s career ends this weekend, though, her accomplishments are many. Not only has she won two sectional championships in a row and earned two state trips, but she went her entire career in the Central Buckeye Conference without losing a single match. And with no CBC athletes but Nellessen left, no one can possibly break that streak. “I had 76 as of my junior year — not including pro-set matches — and I won 28 this year. So … 104-0,” Nellessen said. “I honestly hadn’t thought about that (no other CBC players being left). I’m excited. I worked really hard. I never wanted to lose a single match, especially in conference. I’m proud of it.” In fact, the loss in the Division II District tournament

Browns sale to Haslam approved; Holmgren to leave CHICAGO (AP) — Mike Holmgren won’t be finishing the job he went to do in Cleveland. New Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam III said Tuesday that Holmgren was out as team president, although the Super Bowl-winning coach will remain with the franchise to help in the transition. Haslam was introduced as the Browns’ new boss after the 32 NFL owners unanimously approved his $1 billion purchase of the team from Randy Lerner.

Moments later, Haslam announced that former Eagles President Joe Banner would become chief executive officer. The move takes effect Oct. 25 when the sale is concluded. Haslam plans no other personnel changes before 2013, meaning the jobs of coach Pat Shurmur and his staff and general manager Tom Heckert appear safe for now. “I told Pat on Saturday night that this was the only personnel move until the end of the season,” Haslam said, “But I am not at all

saying we’ll make changes at the end of the season.” The Browns were the last team to win a game this year, beating Cincinnati on Sunday after five losses. They are tied with Kansas City for the worst record in the league. Later Tuesday, the NFL confirmed that Minnesota will host Pittsburgh in a second London game next year. The Vikings and Steelers will play at Wembley Stadium on Sept. 29, 2013, four weeks before Jacksonville hosts San Francisco at Wembley.

“This is a unique opportunity,” Vikings President Mark Wilf said. “It will give excellent and exceptional exposure for the team.” The league also announced that Houston, San Francisco and South Florida will bid for the 2016 and ‘17 Super Bowls. The 57-year-old Haslam, who built his fortune with Pilot Flying J truck stops, has been a minority owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and is in the process of divesting that stock. He said Holmgren and Banner will “work together

until the end of the season to transition in a seamless fashion.” “He has been and still is committed to doing everything he can to make the Cleveland Browns a winning football team,” Haslam said of Holmgren, whose Browns are 10-28 since he was hired by Lerner to run football operations in 2010. Haslam spoke at length with Holmgren in the 2 months since he agreed to purchase the Browns. They met Sunday to work out the logistics of the transition.

“Mike was brought into do a certain role and I don’t think he wanted a different role,” Haslam said. Holmgren led the Green Bay Packers to the 1996 NFL championship and lost in the Super Bowl the next year to Denver. He left the Packers in 1999 to become coach and general manager in Seattle. Six years later, the Seahawks won the AFC title Holmgren had given up much of his personnel duties by then to concentrate on coaching and fell to Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl.

Devils-Dogs ■ CONTINUED FROM 14 after the other. What followed was one quick score after another as the Red Devils roared to a 9-1 victory over the Bulldogs to open up Division II Sectional tournament play at Tipp City Park. “This year we have struggled to get our first score, but once we have, they usually come in Tippecanoe bunches,” coach Scott Downing said. “That’s been a good thing and a bad thing for us. It was big for us to get that first goal out of the way. Once we were able to get that, I think it allowed us to get going a little bit.” Moments after Asbury made it 1-0, Ryan Kagy headed in a pass from Kevin Ryan with 23:59 still to go in the first. Three minutes later, Oscar Freyre scored his first of two goals, with an assist coming from Jake Maus. With the score at 3-0, Jon Pfister out-sprinted the Milton-Union defense and buried a shot for a 4-0 lead with 12:56 left in the half. The Bulldogs, however, found a pulse on offense after the Red Devils controlled the field position battle for most of the opening half. Tyler Cook headed in a goal to make the score 4-1 with 12:10 left in the first. The Red Devils responded in a hurry, though, as Bryan Bernhold and Zach Vinski played the two-man game up the sideline, passing back-and-forth before reaching the goal box. Bernhold turned his back and kicked it with his heel to Vinski, who nailed the shot with 5:11 to go. Tippecanoe took a 5-1 lead into halftime. And Tippecanoe didn’t wait to get on the board in the second half, either. Freyre scored on a helper from Zach Berning less than two minutes into the half. Maus scored Tipp’s next goal at 34:02, then Kagy netted one 30 seconds later to make it 81. Richard Grieshop scored the final Tipp goal with 9:12 left to play in the game. “They are a pretty young team,” Downing said of Milton-Union.

Tippecanoe’s Alex Turzynski fights for possession with Milton-Union’s Jarrett Grile Tuesday at Tipp City Park. “They’ve been going through changes and kind of rebuilding for the last few years. So we’re playing against a lot of younger guys out there. We were the first seed, they were the second-to-last seed. It’s a game you expect to come in and win.” Up next, Tippecanoe (11-3-3) hosts Trotwood on Thursday. • Division III Sectional Greeneview 4, Miami East 0 JAMESTOWN — The Miami East Vikings — the No. 21 seed in the Division III Sectional — saw their season come to an end Tuesday night at Greeneview High School with a 4-0 loss to the Rams in the tournament’s opening round. • Girls Division I Sectional Fairborn 8, Piqua 3 FAIRBORN — There was no revenge for Piqua Tuesday night in the Division I Sectional tournament as the 13th-seeded Indians were ousted by No. 6 Fairborn 8-3.

DETROIT (AP) — Justin Verlander retired 18 of the first 19 New York Yankees he faced and Delmon Young hit a solo homer as the Detroit Tigers held a 2-1 lead in the top of the ninth inning in Game 3 of the AL championship series Tuesday night. Eduardo Nunez — playing for the injured Derek Jeter — hit a solo home run in the top of the ninth to chase Verlander in favor of Phil Coke, and that’s where

the score stood at time of press. Detroit was trying to take a 3-0 lead in the bestof-seven series. The Tigers will host Game 4 tonight. New York’s Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher were benched by a team trying to snap an offensive funk. Eric Chavez replaced Rodriguez at third base and Brett Gardner led off and played left field, his first start since April 17.

Nellessen ■ CONTINUED FROM 14 to Wyoming’s Haley Thoresen was the first match Nellessen had lost all season. “She was definitely really strong, and it’s always hard to play a lefty,” Nellessen said. “That was my first loss, then I had to recover quickly and play another match.” In the consolation match, Nellessen swept Miami Valley’s Rheanna Morehart to earn a No. 3 seed entering Friday’s tournament. “She was strong, too, and had a good baseline game,” Nellessen said. “I tried to draw her in close to the net and hit winners, tried to outlast her mentally and physically. “That’s usually my

gameplan. I keep the ball in play until I get one to attack. I’m scrappy. That’s my rule — I don’t let anything by me without me at least touching it.” Now standing in Nellessen’s way is LaFountain, who has been to the D-II State tournament all four years in her career, winning only one first-round match. Nellessen went to the D-I State tournament as a freshman. “I’ve played her before,” Nellessen said. “It was really close, but I won it in a tiebreaker.” “I still want to win a round. It’s really tough once you get to state. I want to get past the first round and make it into the top eight.”

Hyde the latest in long line of big OSU running backs COLUMBUS (AP) — This sure wasn’t the offense a lot of people expected out of Ohio State. A lot of fans might have hoped the Buckeyes would average 40 points a game, which they are. But almost no one envisioned Urban Meyer’s spread offense would end up working so seamlessly alongside Woody Hayes’ tenets a big back, a big line and enforcing your will on the opponent. Despite ironing out the kinks in a new system, NCAA probation and a bowl ban, the seventhranked Buckeyes (7-0, 3-0 Big Ten) in many ways look a lot like Hayes’ Buckeyes teams from the 1970s that used to live off pushing people around. “This is something that’s new for Urban

because we never had that type of physicality,” said Stan Drayton, an assistant to Meyer at Florida and also his running backs coach at Ohio State. “Now that we have it with these guys here, man, it’s really fun to watch the offense develop.” Meyer’s hiring was supposed to usher in an era of throwing it around, backs used as receivers and receivers carrying the ball. The speed in terms of personnel and even the rapidity and number of plays would be breathtaking. Instead, muscular Carlos Hyde has brought back a Buckeyes’ attack from another time, when it was routine to see 235pound tailbacks muscling through a sliver of daylight created by the hand-tohand combat up front of a

massive offensive line. To his credit, Meyer doesn’t have a problem with the Buckeyes grinding out first downs on terra firma. “We have had two backto-back games where it’s almost 600 rushing yards,” Meyer said, referring to the victories over Nebraska (223) and Indiana (353 yards on the ground). “You kind of go back to what’s working well for you. It’s just been a little bit different the way we manage the game. Because at the end of the day we have to win it. If that means a little more imbalanced in the run, I’m fine with that.” The reason the Buckeyes can rely so heavily on Hyde, who has rushed 296 yards the past two weeks, is because of

the threat of quarterback Braxton Miller breaking loose out wide. Defenses have to be wary of the shifty Miller in the open field, so they have difficulty packing the line of scrimmage to stop runs between the tackles. Behind a big front wall that is playing at its best, Hyde has found a home. “I don’t think that we knew we’d be running the ball out of as much power stuff as we are now,” said starting left tackle Jack Mewhort. When Meyer and his staff first arrived in the spring, the line wasn’t terribly aggressive, Hyde wasn’t working hard and the receivers were not very good. No wonder Meyer called the first few days of running his spread “a clown show.”

Gradually, the line started clicking, Hyde and the other backs began to find some rhythm, the receivers improved and Miller was always there to make up for any part of the offense that didn’t get the job done. Early in the season, he saved the Buckeyes time and time again by freelancing for big yardage. It appeared that Meyer was basically saying to his sophomore signal-caller, “Go out and make a play and win this for us.” And he did. Now Ohio State has advanced far beyond that. Miller can still make plays with his arm and his feet he’s rushed for 912 yards and nine TDs through seven games and has thrown for 1,271 yards and 11 scores but the rise of Hyde at tailback has

transformed the offense. “I saw a lot of passion in him, breaking through arm-tackles and stuff,” left guard Andrew Norwell said of the 6-foot, 232pound Hyde. “He was just trying to get the first down, running really hard. That makes us more confident up front, that we have a big back back there doing his job makes us feel pretty good.” Meyer said of Hyde’s career-high 156 yards rushing and two touchdowns against Indiana: “We just didn’t start very fast. He did not (either). But he got real strong. By the end of the game, he was a man.” Hyde couldn’t be happier with his increased role in the attack. He got 28 carries against Nebraska, 22 last week.
