U.S. delegation heads to Pakistan Officials hope to apply pressure to stop militant infiltration into Afghanistan ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) — CIA chief David Petraeus will be among an army of high-level U.S. officials with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when she arrives in Islamabad on Thursday to ramp up pressure on Pakistan to do more to stop militant infiltration across the border into Afghanistan, several U.S. officials in Washington and the region told The Associated

Press. In a muscular show of diplomatic force, the U.S. dispatched most of its senior national security leaders to Pakistan with what several officials described as a combined message of support and pressure. Petraeus and the nation’s top military official, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey, were joining Clinton in

Pakistan today, several officials in the region and in Washington said. Other U.S. officials en route included the State Department’s Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Marc Grossman, and Doug Lute of the National Security Council. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not publicly authorized to

speak about the sensitive trip. The huge contingent is to meant d i s p l a y unity among the various U.S. agencies with a hand and an PETRAEUS interest in Pakistan, including the CIA, the military and the State Department. The unified message is particularly important

Dye Mill Road will be closed at the railroad crossing just east of South County Road 25-A from 7 a.m. today until 5 p.m. Nov. 4. During the closure period, the road will be closed 24-hours a day. The detour is South County Road 25-A to the downtown Troy traffic circle and east on East Main Street to Dye Mill Road. The road is closed for road reconstruction.

The figure cited in the headline, “City to apply for 300m for East Main St. enhancements” in Wednesday’s Troy Daily News on Oct. 18 contained an error. The figure city council on Monday unanimously authorized applying for to extend the city’s Streetscape improvements on East Main Street was $300,000, so the headline should have read “City to apply for 300k for East Main St. enhancements.”

now, current and former U.S. officials said, because of the rising threat from the Haqqani militant network operating on both sides of the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. The meetings, which neither government has announced because of security concerns, are expected to focus on the recurrent U.S. demand that Pakistan launch its own offensive against Haqqani militants. For more than three decades the Haqqani network, led by the

Protect yourself Health officials: Now is the time to get flu vaccination BY MELODY VALLIEU Staff Writer It’s that time of year again when cold and sickness creeps into homes without warning. While there isn’t always a way to send illnesses packing, the flu vaccine can help keep influenza at bay. The Center for Disease Control and Miami County Health District recommend a flu vaccine for everyone over the age of 6 months old, according to Chris Cook, health commissioner. “I don’t think people are

TROY thinking flu yet. The weather has been incredibly nice, and I believe that people don’t starting thinking about flu shots until the weather turns cold,” said Cook, who said people have to be vaccinated each year to boost their protection. “We saw in 2009 that the H1N1 flu didn’t care about the weather. We had cases all year round, starting in the summer actually.”

Preslee Cook, held by her mother Jill, looks toward her sister, Kennedi, who just received a flu shot. The Cook twins received their first flu shot administered • See VACCINATION on Page by Donna Youtz.

HAMPTON, Va. (AP) — Heralding a splash of good news on jobs, President Barack Obama on Wednesday praised a series of companies that have promised to hire 25,000 veterans or military spouses within two years, calling it a sign of patriotism and business savvy. He pushed his economic agenda anew to a military audience, this time with first lady Michelle Obama at his side. “We ask you to fight, to sacrifice, to risk your lives for your country,” Obama told an audi- OBAMA ence of thousands of people at Joint Base Langley-Eustis. “The last thing you should have to do is fight for a job when you come home. Not here. Not in the United States of America.” In this military setting, Obama’s pitch for his jobs bill was far less partisan than it has been across his bus tour of North Carolina and Virginia. He didn’t target at length the Republican lawmakers who have voted against his plan, promising more broadly to keep pushing Congress to pass a bill that has been broken into pieces. The president’s day-long swing through Virginia does, however, have deep political undertones. Obama won the traditionally Republican-leaning state in 2008, but his poll numbers here are down, and some of the state’s highprofile Democrats are staying away

Colin Girolamo’s recent incident, in which he was cited for drunk driving and leaving the Home Delivery: scene as the result of a traffic accident in Troy 335-5634 on Sept. 25, was not his first brush with the law. Classified Advertising: Girolamo, 27, a candidate on the Nov. 8 bal(877) 844-8385 lot for an at-large seat on Troy City Council, has been cited 14 times since 2001 for a variety of misdemeanors, including three from the Sept. 25 incident, according to Miami County 6 74825 22406 6 Municipal Court Records. Charges include

TROY refusal to submit to a sobriety test in 2008, which ultimately was reduced to a lesser charge, and a criminal damaging charge for a May 14, 2002, spray painting incident at Troy High School. He also was charged with carrying a concealed weapon as the result of a Dec. 31, 2002, traffic stop in Troy. That charge was reduced and he was found guilty of Disorderly Conduct.

• CONTINUED FROM A1 Every year between 3,00048,000 people die from the flu in the U.S., he said. “It’s amazing to me that a vaccine-preventable virus can do this much damage in our country each year,” he said. Cook said each year researchers look at virus trends and select the three viruses that will be the most likely ones circulating and making people sick during flu season. The vaccine the pharmaceutical companies produce contains protection against these three strains, he said. “Most of the time the research is solid, but sometimes they are a little off. In those instances, an unanticipated strain may cause people to get sick,” said Cook, who recently had his flu vaccine, along with his wife Jill, and 8-month-old twin daughters Kennedi and Preslee. “Viruses in general are difficult to predict. They can change and mutate with little warning.” Cook said, however, he believes people don’t have a clear understanding of what the flu actually is and sometimes believe the shot just didn’t work. He said influenza is not a stomach virus. Cook said although many people say they get the flu when they have vomiting and diarrhea, that’s not really the flu — better called a “stomach virus.” Influenza is a respiratory illness. “I think what happens is that people get the flu shot not really knowing what the flu is and what they are getting protection from. They get the shot, but then get a stomach virus and say that the flu

Cook: Flu prevention techniques matter Miami County Health Commissioner Chris Cook got his flu shot this year — but something else is on his mind this flu season besides the vaccine. “Prevention — plain, simple, tried and true,” Cook said. For Cook, encouraging people to prevent the spread of the flu is every bit as important as the vaccine. “I truly believe that we can help control this flu season with some simple prevention,” Cook said. Besides getting the flu vaccine from their clinic, the health district recommends four prevention activities: • Stay home if you are sick (make sure your fever is gone before going back out). • Cover your mouth and nose with your arm when you cough or sneeze. • Wash your hands and use hand sanitizer often. • Avoid sick people whenever possible. One of the toughest prevention activities to sell is staying home from work, school or activities if you are sick. “This is a hard one, since most of us have been raised to ‘tough it out’ if we are sick and it’s just flat out hard to miss work shot didn’t help them,” Cook said. “If you’ve ever really had influenza, I think you’d say you’d rather have a stomach virus. Influenza really, really knocks you down hard.” Cook said the Miami County Health Department is not having flu shot clinics this year, rather walk-in hours from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday-Friday for adults and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays and 8-11 a.m. Thursdays for children. He said evening clinic hours for children also are available several times a month and more information is available on the health department’s website at Some folks are concerned about

these days,” Cook said. “But I can’t stress enough how important it is to stay home if you are sick.Your actions during flu season affect everyone else around you.” Symptoms of the flu include feeling feverish, headache, sore throat, body aches, tiredness, runny nose, and cough. If you have a mild case of the flu, most of the time you are better off to treat yourself at home. Contact your doctor if you have any of these symptoms: trouble breathing, sudden dizziness, confusion, not drinking enough fluids, bluish or gray skin color, severe vomiting or pain/pressure in the chest.You also should see a doctor if symptoms improve but then return with fever and cough. “I’ve been asked how bad I think this flu season will be,” Cook said. “I’m not sure, but I can tell you that it depends on the choices people make. If people are responsible and get vaccinated, cover their coughs and sneezes, if they wash their hands, and if they stay home when they’re sick, it will make a huge difference.” For more information about the flu, visit the health district’s website at or call 440-8105. The health district also can be found on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

receiving flu shots too early and that they won’t protect them in January, February and March. “Research continues to show that the immunity you get from a flu vaccine will last six to eight months,” Cook said. “People should get it now.” Cook said he thinks it’s a good idea to get a flu vaccine because people have busy lives they don’t want interrupted with illness, and with down economy, people can’t afford to miss work. “When you get the flu, you are down and out for a week,” Cook said. “It’s not a like a cold, and you generally can’t work or go to school through it.” Cook said the health depart-

ment can bill a wide variety of insurances for the cost of the flu shot vaccine or the nasal mist vaccine, which is $12 for those 18 and younger and $25 for the shot and $30 for the nasal mist for those 1964. For adults age 65 years old and older the new and more effective high dose flu shot vaccine is $45. Cash, check, health savings cards, Mastercard and Visa also are accepted. “You aren’t hearing a lot of fanfare about this new high dose vaccine, but it’s a great improvement for seniors,” said Cook, who said more information on the high does vaccine is available at

few minute later, where Girolamo, who “appeared to be intoxicated,” according to the police report, declined to take a roadside sobriety test. He was taken to the Troy Police station, where he ultimately submitted to a chemical sobriety test that yielded a .156 reading — about twice the .08 legal limit. Girolamo is charged with OVI (operating a vehicle while intoxicated) and leaving the scene, both first degree misdemeanors, and failure to control, a minor misdemeanor. According to the Miami County Municipal Prosecutor’s Office, a pretrial hearing with Judge Mel Kemmer is set for Nov. 10. Girolamo has secured the services of Troy attorney Joesph Fulker. Late Tuesday, Girolamo issued a written statement to the Troy Daily News about the Sept. 25 incident in which he admits to “a serious error in judgement,” and acknowledges, “I made a mistake. It was a serious error in judgement and I will pay the consequences for what I have done.” In a phone interview Wednesday, Girolamo said he would wait for the legal process to determine guilt or innocence, but issued the statement as a way to “take responsibility for the incident.

Colin Girolamo’s statement on the Sept. 25 traffic incident “With regard to the recent charges against me, I acknowledge that I made a mistake. It was a serious error in judgement and I will pay the consequences for what I have done. This error does not reflect the person I am. This is not the person I want to be for myself. This is not who I want to be for my loved ones. And this is not the person I want to be for the city of Troy. This has not in any way diminished my enthusiasm to serve the citizens of Troy as a councilman. I am still excited to have an opportunity to win a seat on council, and I am still focused and confident that I will be able to fulfill the duties of the office I am seeking. I want to thank everyone for their continued support through this difficult time. Because of the support of my family and friends, I am enthusiastic about continuing my campaign to win an at-large seat on Troy City Council.” — Received by the Troy Daily News on Oct. 18

FROM MIAMI COUNTY MUNICIPAL COURT RECORDS City council candidate Colin Girolamo has been cited 14 times for various offenses since 2001. Of that total, six have been dismissed, three were reduced to lesser charges and twice he was found guilty of the original charge. Three charges are pending as the result of a Sept. 25 traffic accident on West Main Street. • Cited and found guilty of possession of fireworks, May 31, 2001 (possession of drug paraphernalia was dismissed) • Cited and found guilty of criminal damaging for an early morning incident May 14, 2002, at Troy High School. • Initially charged with carrying a concealed weapon as the result of a Dec. 31, 2002, traffic stop. That charge was reduced and he was found guilty of disorderly conduct. Charges of drug abuse and possession of drug paraphernalia were dismissed.

“I get that I made a mistake. I’m not a perfect person. But that’s what life is — making mistakes, learning from them and moving forward,” he said.

• On Jan. 24, 2008, he was stopped on Foss Way in Troy and initially cited for OVI Refusal, or refusing to submit to a sobriety test. He was found guilty of an amended charge of willful and wanton operation on street or highway. A citation for operating a vehicle without reasonable control was dismissed. • In a June 26, 2002, traffic stop on Swailes Road at Quails Nest Court, charges of operating a vehicle without reasonable control and possession of fireworks ultimately were dismissed. • About 10 p.m. Sept. 25, Girolamo lost control of his vehicle in the parking lot of Ruby Tuesday’s restaurant, 1780 W. Main St., and fled the scene before police arrived. He is charged with OVI (operating a vehicle while intoxicated) and leaving the scene, both first degree misdemeanors, and failure to control, a minor misdemeanor.

Girolamo, a 2002 Troy High School graduate, said on Wednesday said the May 14, 2002, spray painting incident at Troy High School was a “senior prank.” He was one of two charged with criminal damaging for spray painting the high school, and 18 other students were charged with criminal trespassing. Girolamo said he was carrying a knife “for self defense” under the seat of his vehicle when he was stopped in Troy on Dec. 31, 2002, and maintained that it’s not unusual for motorists to carry some kind of weapon for self defense. Initially he was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, which was reduced to disorderly conduct. Girolamo, a 2007 Ohio University graduate, filed as an independent, non-partyaffiliated candidate for city council earlier this year. He

told the Troy Daily News in an interview that he hoped to provide “a younger voice” on council, and has been a regular presence in the audience at council meetings over the past several months. He said he “absolutely” intends to continue with his council candidacy on the Nov. 8 ballot, and will participate in the Oct, 27 Meet the Candidates night. “Most of those incidents happened several years ago.

PERSPECTIVE Tom Dunn Guest Columnist

‘Race to the Top’ not as it’s being touted You may have heard of Race to the Top (RttT), a $4.35 billion component of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. If you have not, RttT was a competitive grant for which states’ departments of education could apply. It was sold to both the educational community and the public by President Obama and the head of the United States Department of Education, Arne Duncan, as a means to spur reform in state and local district K12 education. Ohio (fortunately or unfortunately, depending on which side of the issue one comes down on) was awarded one of the grants, and, as is almost always the case with programs like this, there is a political reality, then there is reality. A state could only apply for RttT funds if it had a significant number of its school districts express interest. I was still the superintendent of Troy City Schools when RttT was first introduced, and, knowing how ensconced in red tape governmental programs are and how they very seldom live up to their promise, when we saw how little money our district would receive, we quickly passed on the opportunity.

Certainly, given the fact that some media outlets were already using this as an opportunity to criticize districts for not participating, one didn’t have to be a genius to figure out what would happen when the dollars had become much greater. Even though not participating was the wise thing to do from an educational perspective, we knew it would be a political disaster when the media portrayed those districts not signing on as being irresponsible. So, districts that had passed on the first round (like Troy City Schools) acquiesced to the political pressure and agreed to play, knowing quite well that what we were signing on for wasn’t going to be as advertised. Now, if you believe the political propaganda coming out of Washington and the ODE, you accept that RttT will change the face of education and that districts agreed to participate because they thought that they were really signing on for something special. Maybe the most naïve did. But, most signed on only because they felt compelled to do so. As a result, RttT districts have discovered that it is exactly what we knew it would be; an incredibly cumbersome process that places demands on staffs that districts simply don’t have the manpower to provide while adding little to the improvement of education in our state. What a shame that is.


Nothing ‘magical’ about Troy show To the Editor: The act and events following the show described in a recent TDN is not “just a little magic,” it is demonic. I know, I know. We are modern people and don’t believe in demons anymore. We have learned that it is all in fun. There is nothing real about it. Think again, the young man headlining the show even said it himself, “Broaden your mind and understand there are forces and powers and things out there that are phenomenal if you just accept it . . .” Folks,

this is not just watching about a few illusions. For a few generations now we have been desensitized to the horror and the macabre through shows Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Charmed and numerous other shows and movies. “Oh it’s harmless; there is nothing wrong with it.” All the while our children crave, yes, even demand, more frightful and sick material to watch and read. The latest fads are zombies, and romantic vampire stories. Go ahead, visit a bookstore or a library and see what is lining the shelves for young people. It is pretty dark. It is not just the stories; they have been

around for years. It is the much more morbid than when I was young. Now, the details must be more grotesque, horrific and realistic. We no longer have rabbits from hats and reattaching cut ropes. Now, it is driving spikes into heads and holding séances in an effort to contact the dead. The Bible strongly warns anyone who would think about dabbling in these things to turn and run the other way. It is not just fun, it is like playing with fire in a room full of gasoline, but the end result is much more serious. — Patrick D. Kennedy Troy

Cooler weather means saying goodbye to a friend In the course of the past 20 years, I’ve discovered there are plenty of things women hate about me, including (but certainly not limited to): my face, my body, my checking account and my generally slovenly style of living. Turns out, however, that of all the things about me there are to hate, the one thing they despised the most was the gray Adidas jacket I’ve been wearing since 1992. That year — my freshman year (or, as I like to call it, “my first freshman year”) at Ohio State, my big sister Julie bought me that jacket for my birthday. Every autumn and winter since then, I’ve been wearing that same jacket the minute the weather turned cold. Sure, it’s starting to show it’s age — it’s starting to fray around the edges and there’s a giant blue spot on the breast pocket where a pen exploded while I was covering a Troy football game in 2002 — but generally speaking, I love that coat. Every female in my life, however, despises that coat. My wife cringes every time I pull it out of the closet. My mother harps on me every time I wear it. All of my female co-workers — mostly

David Fong Troy Daily News Executive Editor Melody Vallieu and Twin — tell me how hopelessly out of style it is. Even my sister Julie — the one who bought me that coat all those years ago — tells me how awful I look in that coat. They’ve all spent the past decade (I guess I got a free pass the first decade) telling me, at one point or another, that after 20 years, my beloved coat is old, ratty and out of style. They tell me I should get rid of it forthwith and post haste. To which I always reply, “Wow. I hope I don’t feel the same way about all of you after 20 years.” Personally, I see no reason to get a new coat. It still serves the functions for which it was designed — it keeps me dry when it’s wet and it keeps me warm

when it’s cold. Sure, it may not be very stylish — but if you’ve seen my wardrobe any time recently, you know being stylish isn’t exactly high on my list of priorities. Much more than any of that, however, are the memories I have wrapped up in that jacket. For the five years I spent at Ohio State, that coat was essentially my suit of armor. When I wore that coat, I felt as though nothing could harm me as I walked the mean streets of Columbus. When I took that coat off, I was just a regular college student. When I put that coat on, however, good things — or at least memorable things — always seemed to happen to me. I was wearing that coat the first time I interviewed both Archie Griffin and Eddie George. How many coats have you ever worn while meeting a pair of Heisman Trophy winners? I was wearing that coat when I had my first kiss (yes, I was in college the first time I kissed a girl). I was wearing that coat the morning I graduated from college — which, in my mind, means I was wearing that coat the day a miracle took place. It was that same gray Adidas

jacket I was wearing when I had both my heart and my nose broken — ironically, both happened in the same place, at a bar called Papa Joe’s (though not on the same night and not by the same person). Papa Joe’s has since burned down — but my coat still remains. Of course, all good things had to come to an end. As is so often the case in my marriage (read: always), I was fighting a losing battle. This past summer, I finally gave in and let my wife buy me a new jacket. Turns out there was one fight even my beloved jacket couldn’t get me through. Upon the purchase of my new coat, my wife immediately demanded I throw the old one in the garbage. On this, however, I wouldn’t budge. I’ll wear her new coat — and hopefully make the same wonderful memories in it (highly unlikely) — but I’m not ready to part with the old one just yet. Some friends are worth keeping so long as you are on this planet.

Lindner Jr. remembered for philanthropy CINCINNATI (AP) — Carl Lindner Jr., a publicity-shy Cincinnati financier known for a shrewdness that forged a business empire, was praised Tuesday for his willingness to help worthy causes and for never forgetting his roots. Linder, whose wide range of businesses over the years included baseball, insurance and banks, died Monday at age 92. Lindner was surrounded by his wife, sons and other family members when he died of causes related to age, his Cincinnati-based company, American Financial Group Inc., said in a statement Tuesday. A person close to the family told The Associated Press that Lindner had been taken to a hospital gravely ill Monday morning. Lindner was chairman of American Financial Group, a publicly traded financial holding company now reporting more than $30 billion in assets. In 2009, Forbes magazine estimated Lindner’s personal wealth at $1.75 billion, placing him among the 400 richest Americans. “We’ve lost a giant,” Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Tuesday. Lindner doled out millions of dollars to both political parties and to issue campaigns and hosted lavish fundraisers at his Ohio and Florida homes including one for presidential candidate George H.W. Bush at his home in 1988. He also played host to Bush and Francois Mitterand, then president of France, at his vacation home in Ocean Reef, Fla. “He was arguably the most politically influential person from the private sector that I’ve ever encountered in politics,” said Curt Steiner, a Republican consultant who served in the administration of former Ohio Gov. George Voinovich. Lindner became controlling partner

and chief executive officer of the Cincinnati Reds in a 1999 deal that ended Marge Schott’s rocky 15-year reign as owner. In contrast to her grandstanding, Lindner stayed mostly in the background save for a lasting memory in 2000 when he picked up Ken Griffey Jr. at the airport in his Rolls-Royce following the blockbuster trade. “Carl was a true friend, and that friendship lasted outside of and beyond our years with the Reds,” Griffey said, in a statement released through the Reds. “He taught me many life lessons and was extremely generous to my entire family. His generosity to many other people and to the entire Cincinnati area will be felt for many generations to come.” Lindner, who sold his controlling interest in the Reds in 2005, ruled over a complex maze of corporations with nearly 70,000 employees worldwide. American Financial Group owned, or held substantial investments in, Charter Co., marketer of fuel to electric utilities; Chiquita Brands International Inc. (NYSE:CQB) , one of the world’s largest food producers, and Great American Insurance Co. Lindner’s financial support for the University of Cincinnati, which named its business school after him, and various

charities earned him a reputation as a philanthropist. University of Cincinnati President Gregory Williams said he saw Lindner last week and “he was as gracious and kind as ever.” “What more people should know about Mr. Lindner is his inspiring life, and of his efforts to guide generations to succeed the right way,” Williams said. Some business critics considered him a ruthless takeover artist. He made millions in the 1970s and 1980s by investing, then retreating, from companies. He bought The Cincinnati Enquirer newspaper in 1971 and sold it in 1975. An alleged attempt by Lindner to take over Gannett Co. (NYSE:GCI) prompted former chairman Al Neuharth to call him a “shark in sheep’s clothing.” Lindner made a name for himself as one of Michael Milken’s earliest and most prominent junk-bond players, but also predicted a decline in the junk-bond market in the late 1980s. “Of course, Carl was always a couple years ahead of the pack,” said James Dahl, a former bond seller for Milken. Lindner had a reputation for working long hours pursuing deals. “I’m working over 80 hours a week and have to keep on track,” he once told

People shout anti-American slogans at a rally to condemn U. S. strikes on militants’ hideouts in Pakistani tribal areas, in Multan, Pakistan on Oct 14. give a precise location or other details. “The issue is that every now and again, one of these organizations that has been able to manifest itself on this side of the border is going to have to get some ‘special attention,’ and that’s what’s happening now,” Allen said. Senior U.S. officials said the CIA was given a clearer green light to go after the Taliban affiliate in its Pakistani stronghold after the attack on a military base in Wardak, Afghanistan that wounded 77 American soldiers. The Sept. 10 attack, blamed on the Haqqanis, helped convinced Clinton that the U.S. should take decisive action against the network, two officials said. Clinton and other U.S. officials had previously worried that CIA pressure on the network, primarily through drone strikes, would make its leaders less likely to support peace efforts between the Afghan government and the Taliban. Washington has had contact with some within the Haqqani network, including Ibrahim Haqqani, the

brother of the network’s leader Jalaluddin, according to several Afghan and U.S. officials. That same worry has held up an expected U.S. announcement that the Haqqani network will be placed on a list of terror groups subject to U.S. punishment. That move is now expected within a few weeks, two officials said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussions are not complete. Despite her hope that the Haqqanis could play a useful role in supporting peace talks, the Wardak strike was a turning point for Clinton, one senior U.S. official said. “The Pakistanis’ big mistake was making Hillary Clinton mad,” the official said. With Clinton no longer resisting, the CIA has been free to pursue stepped-up drone attacks on the network, killing a number of Haqqani operatives including a top leader named Janbaz Zadran over the last several weeks. U.S. intelligence officials say Zadran helped the Haqqanis orchestrate attacks on troops in Kabul and southeastern Afghanistan.

Jobs to approve separate tax credits worth thousands of dollars for businesses that hire veterans who’ve been out of work for at least six months, including those with disabilities. As Obama has been traveling, lawmakers back in Washington were taking the first steps to break his nearly $450 billion jobs bill into pieces for possible votes. It’s the only way elements of the measure stand a chance of passing, given that Senate Republicans blocked action on the full package last week. The bus trip has given the president the opportunity to promote elements of his jobs plan in places the White House says would benefit most should the measures pass. Obama has spoken at high schools and community colleges where the administration says new spending would prevent

teacher layoffs, as well as a small, regional area airport near Asheville, N.C., where Obama pressed for government funds to renovate an outdated runway. Wednesday’s stops were following a similar pattern. Obama has proposed a Returning Heroes tax credit of up to $5,600 for businesses that hire unemployed veterans who have been out of work for six months or more, as well as a Wounded Warriors tax credit of nearly $10,000 for unemployed veterans with service-related disabilities who also have been looking for work for at least six months. “When I first proposed this idea in a joint session of Congress, people stood up and applauded on both sides of the aisle,” Obama said about tax credits to encourage hiring of veterans. “So when it comes for a vote in the Senate, I expect to get votes from both sides of the aisle. Don’t just

applaud about it. Vote for it. Vote for it.” After his comments, Obama was headed back on his imposing black bus on a three-hour drive to North Chesterfield, Va., where he was to speak at a local fire station. He’s trying to rally support for the first piece of the jobs bill Senate Democrats plan to take up, a $35 billion package of assistance for state and local governments aimed at keeping firefighters, as well as police officers and teachers, on the job. Republicans have criticized Obama’s bus trip as being more focused on selling the president’s re-election than solving the country’s economic woes. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday: “Let’s park the campaign bus, put away the talking points, and do something to address this jobs crisis.”

DEATHS OF NATIONAL INTEREST • Kent Hull BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Kent Hull, who served as Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly’s center during the Buffalo Bills’ AFC title years in the early 1990s, has died. He was 50. Mississippi State, where Hull played his college ball, announced he passed away on Tuesday afternoon. The cause of death was not immediately known. Hull was a three-time Pro Bowl selection during 11 seasons with the Bills. He was credited for playing a key role in helping run the team’s no-huddle “K-Gun” offense. The Bills honored Hull in 2002 by placing his name on Ralph Wilson Stadium’s Wall of Fame. “We have suffered a tremendous loss,” Bills Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas wrote in an email to The Associated Press. “Kent was a teammate, big brother and best friend. My heart breaks for His amazing family. My heart breaks period. He will be a best friend and in my heart forever.” Kelly described Hull as a “man of great courage and character,” in a statement

released by the Bills. “Words fall short when the pain runs so deep,” Kelly said. “I’m finding it hard to describe what this loss means to me and my family. Kent Hull was my best friend. … He will be missed and never forgotten.” Hull was inducted into Mississippi State’s sports hall of fame in 2000, and then the state’s sports hall of fame three years later. Hull broke into pro football in 1983 with the USFL New Jersey Generals, where he eventually was joined by Kelly in 1986, just before the league folded. The two then headed to the Bills, the team that still held the rights to Kelly after selecting him in the first round of the 1983 draft. They became part of the core of a team that ushered in the Bills’ golden era. Hull was a fixture on the offensive line of a team that made four straight Super Bowl appearances from 1991 to 1994 only to lose them all. Funeral arrangements have not yet been announced.


elderly Jalaluddin Haqqani, has maintained a headquarters in Pakistan’s Miran Shah district of North Waziristan. The United States has had some recent successes killing at least two top Haqqani commanders in drone attacks. The U.S. and NATO consider the Taliban affiliate to be the single greatest enemy in Afghanistan, and accuse Pakistan of providing the group safe havens. There are also recent allegations that Pakistan has sent rocket fire into Afghanistan to provide cover for insurgents crossing the border. Pakistan has denied aiding the Haqqanis, and an increasingly angry Pakistani military has refused to carry out an offensive in the North Waziristan tribal region, saying it would unleash a tribal-wide war that Pakistan could not contain. According to three senior U.S. officials in Washington and elsewhere, the broader message for the meeting is that the U.S. still wants to have a strategic relationship with Pakistan, and officials believe that it is critical enough to put together this session. Several officials stressed, however, that the message of cooperation would be coupled with a restatement of deep U.S. concern about the Haqqani network and Pakistan’s reluctance to go after the militants. U.S. military leaders have already told the Pakistanis that if Islamabad does not take action against the Haqqanis, the U.S. will. Although U.S. officials said the meeting this week was not set up to deliver that message, it is likely to come up again. A new offensive unleashed in recent days by the U.S.-led coalition against the Haqqani network in Afghanistan has added a sense of urgency to the talks in Pakistan. Gen. John Allen, the top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan, described the offensive in general terms during an interview Wednesday with the AP. Allen called it a “high intensity sensitive operation” but would not

from the president’s events. Obama and the first lady both sought to assure veterans and their families that the country was behind them and that employers are, too. The American Logistics Association, which includes major companies like Tyson Foods Inc. and Coca-Cola Co. , is pledging to hire 25,000 people by the end of 2013. Michelle Obama called it the largest coordinated effort by the private sector to hire veterans that the nation has seen in years. Mrs. Obama is leading a national campaign to rally the country around its veterans. The president said that every company should want to hire veterans because of their leadership experience, mastery of cutting-edge technology and other skills. Obama is asking Congress

a reporter in explaining why he usually refused interview requests. Even in his later years, he showed no signs of slowing down. House Speaker John Boehner, described Lindner as a “job creator who truly loved Cincinnati.” “Never a man to turn down a worthy cause, Carl’s generosity touched countless lives,” the Ohio Republican said Tuesday. Lindner “understood the impact that his money could have on people and causes in our community,” Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory, a Democrat, said Tuesday.

BAMAKO, Mali (AP) — The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria said Wednesday it will stop a $28 million HIV/AIDS grant to Mali’s government after investigators found evidence money is being misused. The Global Fund said in a statement that it will suspend funding all but essential services under the grant until a new structure can be found to manage the money. Dr. Youssouf Diallo from Mali’s High Council for the Fight Against AIDS called the decision premature and said the Council had not been shown any of the evidence against it. “This decision is not the right way to work together as partners.” Diallo said. Mali, a poor, landlocked West African nation relies on international donors to fund its health system. The High Council for the Fight Against AIDS is attached directly to the Malian president’s office and the move against the body is not the first preventative measure the Global Fund has taken in Mali. Earlier this year the Fund suspended another HIV/AIDS grant to Mali worth $13.91 million. That decision followed the announcement in December 2010 of the suspension of funding of two malaria grants and the termination of a third grant for tuberculosis. The Global Fund’s investigative office has also found evidence of fraud in a number of other countries around the world. In December 2010, the Global Fund announced that Mali and four other countries Ivory Coast, Djibouti, Mauritania and Papua New Guinea would be subject to special measures and closer scrutiny of their grant activities. Last month, a high-powered panel assembled to address the problem said the Fund itself would have to take some of the responsibility for losses in countries where it stopped funding because of fraud. The panel concluded that

the controls put in place by the Fund to be sure the money is properly disseminated “have not worked as well as intended.” The Board of the Global Fund adopted the panel’s recommendations shortly after the report came out. “We are determined to carry out these changes quickly to ensure that donors and implementing countries maintain absolute confidence that the Global Fund is an efficient and effective funding channel that delivers value for money,” said Simon Bland, the Global Fund’s Chair, in September. Sweden said on Tuesday that its donations to the Global Fund were on condition that the body undertakes major reform. “The Global Fund needs to change from an emergency response mechanism to a sustainable channel for resources for health,” said Sweden’s Minister for International Development Cooperation, Gunilla Carlsson. Since its creation in 2002, the Fund has become the main financier of programs to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, and has approved $21.7 billion worth of funding around the world. The Global Fund has grant agreements with Mali totalling $123 million, of which $79 million has already been disbursed.

Fund suspends $28m AIDS grant in Mali


ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greek lawmakers have granted initial approval to a new austerity bill whose spending cuts and tax hikes have sparked fury on the streets of Athens. The bill received a 154141 vote late Wednesday. A second vote on the bill’s articles will be held Thursday in the 300-member Parliament. Only after that vote will the bill have passed.

Before the vote, riots broke out in central Athens during a demonstration by about 100,000 people on the first of a twoday general strike to protest the bill. The measures include new tax hikes, further pension and salary cuts, the suspension on reduced pay of 30,000 public servants and the suspension of collective labor contracts.

Ohio union fight could boost Dems’ 2012 chances COLUMBUS, (AP) — A ballot battle over whether to keep Ohio’s tough new restrictions on public employee unions could give labor supporters and Democrats a lift going into the presidential election year. But some Democrats fear losing the Nov. 8 referendum could be another dispiriting setback that saps enthusiasm from the party’s progressive base. Unions have hoped that a backlash against Republican-led efforts to curb the rights of organized labor in state legislatures around the country could translate into victories for pro-labor Democrats in 2012. Labor leaders expect to get a better sense of voters’ mindsets when Ohioans decide whether to toss out a law that bans public employee strikes and limits the collective bargaining rights of more than 350,000 teachers, firefighters, police officers, state employees and others. The law signed in late March by Republican Gov. John Kasich allows unions to negotiate on wages, but not on pension or health care benefits.

In response to a similar crackdown on public employees’ collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin — done as a budgetcutting measure — Wisconsin Democrats and labor leaders launched a recall campaign to win control of the state Senate from Republicans. They fell short in Republican-majority state Senate district races, but are more confident of the statewide referendum in Ohio. “We will, I believe, win that citizens veto,” AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka said of the Ohio vote in a recent speech at the Brookings Institution in Washington. The AFL-CIO alone poured more than $5.5 million into the Wisconsin effort and similar expenditures are planned for Ohio. Insiders are predicting the ballot battle could cost more than the $33 million spent in last year’s race for Ohio governor. Unlike the law in Wisconsin, Ohio’s measure curbing union rights includes police and firefighters, who tend to be more popular with independent and conservative voters. Ohio’s fire-

If we were to win, I think it would be a major encouragement that will be hugely beneficial, not only to Democrats running for the state House and state Senate, but I think it would be a huge benefit to Senator (Sherrod) Brown and to President Obama. — Former Gov. Ted Strickland

fighters have been featured prominently in television ads supporting the referendum. The nation’s largest firefighters union, the International Association of Fire Fighters, has spent about $1 million so far in Ohio. “If we were to win, I think it would be a major encouragement that will be hugely beneficial, not only to Democrats running for the state House and state Senate, but I think it would be a huge benefit to Senator (Sherrod) Brown and to President Obama,” former Gov. Ted Strickland told The Associated Press. But Strickland also warned that a loss on the referendum

“would be a major blow to the Democratic Party going forward.” The repeal effort is popular now in Ohio. A Quinnipiac University poll last month showed 51 percent of Ohio voters would repeal the law, and another 38 percent support the overhaul. But most observers expect those numbers to tighten as the conservative group Building a Better Ohio, which backs the law, ramps up spending on television ads. The bill’s supporters received a boost this weekend when the editorial board of The Plain Dealer, a Cleveland newspaper based in the traditionally Democratic stronghold of Cuyahoga County, endorsed a

“yes” vote to keep the law. Democrats and unions hope to tap into the 1.3 million Ohioans who signed petitions to get the referendum on November ballots. And they see Ohio as a chance to rehearse their get-out-the-vote efforts for next year’s presidential campaign. “The referendum vote in Ohio is huge,” former AFL-CIO political director Steve Rosenthal said. “A victory on the initiative will provide a huge boost to labor and progressives on the whole. A loss would hurt, but the organizational infrastructure that has been built for this campaign will carry over into a major effort to win in 2012.” Republicans contend this year’s election issue will be a distant memory by the time Ohioans cast their ballots for president. “I don’t think there’s a carryover effect,” said Kevin DeWine, the state’s Republican Party chairman. “You can’t look at an election in one year and think that it’s going to have an impact on the election in the next year, in part because I think the issues are different.”

AP Interview: New offensive hits Haqqani militant network KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The U.S.-led coalition has launched a new offensive against one of Afghanistan’s most virulent militant networks and plans to ramp up operations next year along the eastern border with Pakistan before the American troop drawdown gathers steam, the top commander said Wednesday. Marine Gen. John Allen told The Associated Press that the “high-intensity, sensitive” operation that began just a few days ago targets the Haqqani group, a Pakistan-based militant that attacks network Afghan and coalition forces. The U.S. has been urging the Pakistanis incessantly to clamp down on Haqqani fighters, who have ties to

both the Taliban and alQaida and have been blamed for most of the highprofile attacks in the heart of the Afghan capital, Kabul. Allen would not discuss details of the operation, saying only: “Every now and again, one of these organizations that has been able to manifest itself on this side of the border is going to have to get some special attention, and that’s what’s happening now.” In a wide-ranging interview, Allen also told the AP that the process of handing off security to Afghan forces was going to move faster than initially planned. Afghan President Hamid Karzai wants the Afghan army and police to be in the lead in protecting and

defending the nation by the end of 2014. Allen commands more than 130,000 international troops in Afghanistan, including about 98,000 from the United States. Most of the coalition forces are deployed in southern Afghanistan, where they have had success in routing insurgents from their strongholds to make room for the international community and Afghan government to improve governance and services. If the coalition, with the help from the Afghan forces, can hold areas in the south, some coalition forces, perhaps a few 1,000-member battalions, could be moved to the east, Allen said. “The intent in the east is

ously processed on the equipment because those vegetables are rarely eaten raw. Cooking can kill the bacteria. The agency said the contamination likely happened in the packing house, but the way the cantaloupes were cooled after being picked may have also contributed to listeria growth. The farm did not use a process called “pre-cooling” that is designed to remove some condensation, thus creating moist conditions on the cantaloupe rind that are ideal for listeria bacteria growth. Listeria grows in cool environments, unlike most pathogens. FDA said that samples of cantaloupes in Jensen Farms’ fields were negative for listeria, but bacteria coming off the field may have initially introduced the pathogen into the open-air packing house, where it then spread. Listeria contamination often comes from animal feces or decaying vegetation. Another possible source of contamination was a truck that frequently hauled cantaloupe to a cattle operation and was parked near the packing house. Contamination could have come from the cattle operation and then tracked into the house by people or equipment, the report said.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Pools of water on the floor and old, hard-to-clean equipment at a Colorado farm’s cantaloupe packing facility were probably to blame for the deadliest outbreak of foodborne illness in 25 years, the Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday. Government investigators found positive samples of listeria bacteria on equipment in the Jensen Farms packing facility and on fruit that had been held there. In a six-page assessment of the conditions at the farm based on investigators’ visits in late September, the FDA said Jensen Farms had recently purchased used equipment that was corroded, dirty and hard to clean. The packing facility floors were also constructed so they were hard to clean, so pools of water potentially harboring the bacteria formed close to the packing equipment. The equipment — purchased in July, the same month the outbreak started — was previously used to wash and dry potatoes, the agency said, and the listeria “could have been introduced as a result of past use of the equipment,” according to the report. FDA officials said that they are not concerned about similar listeria contamination in the potatoes that were previ-

Lions, tigers shot after owner set them free ZANESVILLE — (AP) Sheriff’s deputies shot nearly 50 wild animals including 18 rare Bengal tigers and 17 lions in a big-game hunt across the state’s countryside Wednesday after the owner of an exotic-animal park threw their cages open and committed suicide in what may have been one last act of spite against his neighbors and police. As homeowners nervously hid indoors, officers armed with high-powered rifles and shoot-to-kill orders fanned out through fields and woods to hunt down 56 animals that had been turned loose from the Muskingum County Animal Farm by owner Terry Thompson before he shot himself to

death Tuesday. After an all-night hunt that extended into Wednesday afternoon, 48 animals were killed. Six others three leopards, a grizzly bear and two monkeys were captured and taken to the Columbus Zoo. A wolf was later found dead, leaving a monkey as the only animal still on the loose. Those destroyed included six black bears, two grizzlies, a wolf, a baboon and three mountain lions. Dead animals were being buried on Thompson’s farm, officials said. “It’s like Noah’s Ark wrecking right here in Zanesville, Ohio,” lamented Jack Hanna, TV personality and former director of the

Columbus Zoo. Hanna defended the sheriff’s decision to kill the animals but said the deaths of the Bengal tigers were especially tragic. There are only about 1,400 of the endangered cats left in the world, he said. “When I heard 18, I was still in disbelief,” he said. “The most magnificent creature in the entire world, the tiger is.” As the hunt dragged on outside of Zanesville, population 25,000, schools closed in the mostly rural area of farms and widely spaced homes 55 miles east of Columbus. Parents were warned to keep children and pets indoors. And flashing signs along highways told motorists,


Investigators walk around a barn as carcasses lay on the ground at The Muskingum County Animal Farm Wednesday in Zanesville. “Caution exotic animals” and “Stay in vehicle.” Officers were ordered to kill the animals instead of trying to bring them down with tranquilizers for fear that those hit with darts would escape in the darkness before they dropped and would later regain consciousness.

“These animals were on the move, they were showing aggressive behavior,” Sheriff Matt Lutz said. “Once the nightfall hit, our biggest concern was having these animals roaming.” The sheriff would not speculate why Thompson killed himself and why he left open the cages and

fences at his 73-acre preserve, dooming the animals he seemed to love so much. Thompson, 62, had had repeated run-ins with the law and his neighbors. Lutz said that the sheriff’s office had received numerous complaints since 2004 about animals escaping onto neighbors’ property.

Government: Don’t reopen Demjanjuk citizenship CLEVELAND (AP) — Federal prosecutors said they will fight a “brazen” attempt to restore U.S. citizenship to a man deported to Germany and convicted on Nazi war crimes charges. In a U.S. District Court filing Tuesday night, prosecutors said retired Ohio autoworker John Demjanjuk was trying to cast himself as a victim following his May 12 conviction in Germany on more than 28,000 counts of accessory to murder. Demjanjuk’s attorneys charge that the govern-

ment failed to disclose important evidence, namely a 1985 secret FBI report uncovered by The Associated Press. It indicates the FBI believed a Nazi ID card purportedly showing that Demjanjuk served as a death camp guard was a Soviet-made fake. His son, John Demjanjuk Jr., and public defender Dennis Terez, appointed to represent Demjanjuk in the matter, declined to comment Wednesday. Demjanjuk, 91, was convicted by a court that

found he had served as a guard at the Nazi’s Sobibor death camp in occupied Poland. He was sentenced to five years in prison. Demjanjuk denies serving as a guard at any camp and is free pending his appeal. He’s been in poor health for years and has been in and out of a hospital since his conviction. Demjanjuk is barred from leaving Germany because he has no passport, but he could get a U.S. passport if the denaturalization ruling was

overturned. Ukrainian-born Demjanjuk was a Soviet Red Army soldier captured by the Germans in 1942. The Munich court found he agreed to serve the Nazis as a guard at Sobibor. “John Demjanjuk comes before this court casting himself as the victim — of government misconduct and a ‘miscarriage of justice’ that led to his 2002 denaturalization,” the government said in a 56-page filing accompanied by 35 exhibits. “That claim is nothing

if not brazen. The facts are that John Demjanjuk was a guard at a Nazi extermination camp (and at Nazi concentration camps) where he helped to murder thousands of innocent men, women and children.” The government asked Judge Dan Polster to reject Demjanjuk’s bid to reopen his citizenship case. While court rules allow people to file motions, “It does not give them the power to re-write history,” the government said. The government’s response included an Oct. 12 affidavit from retired FBI agent Thomas Martin, who said the March 4, 1985, report written by him was based on speculation, not any

investigation. He said he had based his speculation, in part, on his understanding that the Soviet secret police “had a longstanding program designed to target dissidents living overseas, for the purpose of intimidation, threat or actual assassination.” While concerned the Nazi ID card could be a Soviet fake, Martin said in the affidavit, “I reached no conclusions about its authenticity.” The 1985 report says the Cleveland office’s investigation “strongly indicated” a Soviet scheme to discredit “prominent emigre dissidents speaking out publicly and/or leading emigre groups in opposition to the Soviet leadership in the USSR.”

Harvest season offers delicious pear bread October 17 is always a reminder to me of my parents anniversary. They were happily married for 42 years before Dad’s passing away in 2000. We still miss them dearly but they left us many good memories. Meanwhile, we received the sad news of the death of Joe’s cousin Ben’s wife Salome. She was only 46years-old and that dreaded cancer overtook her. Our sympathy goes to the family. They lost a son some time ago from a fall while working on construction. The funeral is on Wednesday and we hope to find a way to attend. Lots and lots of leaves have been raked around here. Saturday was a windy day and blew away a lot of our leaves which made us all happy. Last week, Kevin, 6, brought home a pumpkin from school and wanted me to carve a face in it for him. I told him I don’t have time but he didn’t give up until I took time and carved one in for him. I lit a candle inside and he was proud of his little pumpkin.

Grandmother should respect the request to remove pics from Facebook Dear Annie: Yesterday, our daughter-in-law announced that she did not want pictures of her children posted on Facebook. My wife is beside herself, saying that "Mary" has no right to do this. My wife refuses to respect the request. She has many pictures of the grandchildren that she took and has already posted on Facebook. Personally, I agree with my daughter-in-law, and as a result, my wife won't speak to me. She accused me of not being supportive because I'm taking Mary's side. Can you help? Should my wife take the pictures down? — Annoyed Husband Dear Annoyed: Yes, and for several reasons. It's one thing to post a picture of an unknown drunk at a bar. That is fair game. But when someone specifically asks you to remove a picture, it is a sign of good will to do so. Also, these are photographs of children, and parents can be highly sensitive to having those pictures plastered in a public space. Your wife should be respectful of Mary's parental authority. But the overriding reason should be maintaining a warm and loving relationship with your daughter-in-law. By refusing this request, your wife is creating unnecessary rancor. Once the kids are posting their own pictures on Facebook, we suspect Mary will ease up. Please urge your wife to be patient. She can still display the photographs at home, in her purse or on her smartphone. Dear Annie: I go to a wonderful doctor. The only problem is, he has horrendously bad breath. I don't understand how a health care professional can have such terrible oral hygiene. You would think he knows better. He drinks coffee constantly, so I don't know whether that's contributing to the odor or whether he believes it covers it up. The really perplexing thing is that he works in an office with several other people, including his wife, who is also a physician. The nurses and receptionist all carry on conversations with him like everything is fine. I was beginning to think his breath odor was a figment of my imagination until I referred a colleague to him. After her appointment, she told me, "He was really nice. Too bad his breath smells like something crawled into his mouth and died." I don't have the guts to tell him, and I can't understand why those closest to him don't say anything. Shouldn't a physician be on top of things like this? — Puzzled Patient Dear Puzzled: You are assuming his halitosis is caused by poor oral hygiene, but that may not be the case. Sometimes there are underlying, even intractable reasons for bad breath, and your physician may be doing all he can to remedy the problem. If neither you nor anyone in his office is willing to speak up, we recommend you offer him a breath mint at your next visit. If you also pop one into your own mouth, it will lessen any embarrassment. Dear Annie: I know how "Widowed and Confused" feels about dating again. I was widowed suddenly at the age of 45. For months, I went to work and came home and sat on my couch until bedtime. Then a good friend took me out to a bar with a live band. When a man asked me to dance, I said yes. My children were grown when their father died, and my oldest was upset to learn I was seeing someone. I said, "Can you tell me when Dad is going to come back? If you can, I'll sit right here and wait for him." After a few minutes, she replied, "You're right, Mom. He's not coming back, and you need to live your life." Tell "Widowed" to ask that same question of anyone who thinks she should mourn forever. If they can give her a "date of return" on her deceased husband, fine. I suspect they'll see the simple truth and stop trying to make her feel guilty. — Didn't Wait Forever Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

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


Nylon net still queen of the household chores Dear Heloise: Many thanks for remembrances of your mom’s (and your) columns of long ago. I was a young bride when your mom’s column started, and it became a daily “guiding light” for doing my household chores, recipes, etc. Many a sentence in our household started with “Heloise says ...” Nylon net is still queen of the household chores. One more nylon-net use: My sieve was wet, but I needed to sift some powdered sugar. I folded a piece of nylon net several times, put the sugar in the middle and shook it. Worked great, and the nylon net was rinsed out for another use.

Hints from Heloise Columnist Also, kitchen-countertop grills are wonderful, but cleaning them is a chore. By putting the dirty grill on the edge of the sink (with the bottom of the grill extending over the sink), all the water goes directly into the sink — much easier and less messy. Thanks for taking over the column; I’m enjoying it very much.

— Vicky from Ventura, Calif. Vicky, it’s been fun looking back at 50 years’ worth of hints! Nylon net (found at fabric stores, and very much like tulle, or a ballerina’s tutu) was a favorite of my mother’s! It still can be used for so many hints today! — Heloise HEARING-AID BATTERIES Dear Heloise: In humid climates, many hearing-aid users store their aids overnight in little containers that absorb moisture. Since the manufacturers suggest putting only the aids, and not the batteries, in the containers to extend the life of the batteries, here’s what I did: I glued a juice bottle cap (softdrink or water-bottle caps are

too small) to the lid of the container. I then pop the batteries into the cap for overnight storage, which makes it easier to pluck them out in the morning. — Elaine W., Mechanicsburg, Pa. CLOTHES SWAP Dear Heloise: This is just a note on your hint about having a clothes swap after cleaning out the closet. This is a great idea. My church has a clothing swap twice a year. This gives me a great excuse to do some closet cleaning, which is not my favorite chore. The clothes that are left over are taken to our local thrift shop. — Alice in Pennsylvania











HOROSCOPE Thursday, Oct. 20, 2011 Your chart indicates that there are strong probabilities for profit in the coming months, from something that is originated by another. Lady Luck could be big factor in that person bringing you into his or her endeavor. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Be wary of taking a financial risk on an involvement that you cannot personally control. There’s a chance you might end up paying for someone else’s mistakes. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — It’s sad but true that not everyone you deal with will bide by the same high standards you set for yourself. Be careful not to trip over your own naivete. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Even though you have a sharp eye for details, it might be difficult for you to see the entire picture. You should stand back a bit, in order to take in and analyze the whole view. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Schedule your day so that responsibilities are given greater priority over pleasurable pursuits. Unless you think ahead and use reason, you could waste valuable time. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Be careful that you don’t base your judgment and decision-making on emotional rather than logical aspects of your life. Needless to say, you would fare better if the emphasis were reversed. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — A project you establish for yourself might look far easier on paper than it actually is. However, once you discover this, don’t use it as an excuse to dump the effort. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — You’ll regret it later if you are irresponsible in handling your personal funds. Wasteful extravagance will emerge victorious if you don’t practice a little financial discipline. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — If you promise or give away much more than you should when cutting a deal, you’ll regret it later, when you have time to reflect. Be fair to others, but make sure that you’re taken care of, too. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Make sure you distinguish the difference between positive and mere wishful thinking. The former enhances success; the latter only invites failure. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — All types of material opportunities hover about you at this point in time, but you might not even recognize them for what they are, owing to an indifferent attitude on your part. Be alert. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — It isn’t right to expect others to do things for you that you can do equally well or even manage far more competently then they, unless you’re paying them to do so. Don’t expect any free rides. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Even though you’re a rather perceptive individual, you could be taken in and accept something at face value instead of checking things out as you usually do. Don’t be naive. COPYRIGHT 2011 UNITED FEATURE SYNDICATE, INC.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Thursday, Oct. 20, the 293rd day of 2011. There are 72 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 20, 1944, during World War II, Gen. Douglas MacArthur stepped ashore at Leyte (LAY’-tee) in the Philippines, 2 years after saying, “I shall return.” On this date: • In 1740, Maria Theresa became ruler of Austria,

Hungary and Bohemia upon the death of her father, Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI. • In 1803, the U.S. Senate ratified the Louisiana Purchase. • In 1936, Helen Keller’s teacher, Anne Sullivan Macy, died in Forest Hills, N.Y., at age 70. • In 1947, the House UnAmerican Activities Committee opened hearings into alleged Communist influence and infiltration in the U.S. motion picture industry.

• In 1964, the 31st president of the United States, Herbert Hoover, died in New York at age 90. • In 1967, seven men were convicted in Meridian, Miss., of violating the civil rights of three slain civil rights workers. • Today’s Birthdays: Actor William Christopher is 79. Japan’s Empress Michiko is 77. Rockabilly singer Wanda Jackson is 74. Singer Tom Petty is 61. Actor William “Rusty” Russ is 61.

Thai P.M. admits floods were overwhelming BANGKOK (AP) Thailand’s new premier acknowledged Wednesday that the country’s flood crisis has overwhelmed her government, and she pleaded for mercy from the media and solidarity from the country in battling the relentless waters. In an emotional appearance before reporters, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said her administration is doing all it can and trying to be as clear as possible about where the flooding may strike next. However, mixed messages from officials in recent days about whether the floodwaters will enter Bangkok have left people confused. A poll by ABAC, associated with Bangkok’s Assumption College, found that 87 percent of 415 people surveyed did not trust information from the government’s flood command center. “We have been doing everything we can, but this is a big national crisis,” Yingluck said. “I’m begging for mercy from the media here.” Bangkok’s city government, headed by the opposition, urged residents in seven northern districts to move belongings to safe places because of likely flooding. The warning came days after some officials had indicated the worst threat had passed. Meanwhile, flooding in areas directly north of the city worsened despite frantic government efforts to stave off the water. The death toll in nationwide flooding is 317, mostly from drowning, with nearly 9 million people affected and 27 of the country’s 77 provinces still inundated. Initial estimates of the economic cost of destroyed shops, paralyzed factories and


Thai Buddhist monks wade through Ban Kadee temple in Phatum Thani province, north of Bangkok, Thailand, Wednesday. Thai authorities were staging a fighting retreat Wednesday against flood waters that threaten Bangkok, after the country’s oldest factory park was completely inundated and a nearby one faced imminent threat of flooding. swamped farmland were $3 billion, but have since been rising. Floodwaters in northern areas began in August and have slowly crawled south toward the Gulf of Thailand, though the government has notched up the urgency of flood-control efforts only in the past two weeks. “The government had said over and over again they were able to handle the situation, then what happened? It got flooded from there to here,” said Puntip Susuntitapong, a 61-year-old retired banker in Bangkok.

Yingluck had no previous government experience when she came into power in August as the standard-bearer for the party aligned with her brother, Thaksin Shinawatra, who is a fugitive on corruption convictions but still widely popular. A distraught Yingluck appealed Wednesday to reporters to stop asking whether Bangkok will be inundated. “The more you ask questions like this, the less useful it is going to be,” she said, adding that her role was to coordinate,

not disseminate information. She said experts were more qualified than she to give information, and that her own personal views “might lead to lack of confidence and confusion among the people.” “We are telling the truth, not concealing anything from the people,” she said. “We have been doing everything we can, but this is a big national crisis. On our own, we can’t get it done. We need unity from every side, and today we must set politics aside.” The administration’s low point in handling the

floods may have been Oct. 13 when Science Minister Plodprasop Suraswadi issued a spur-of-themoment order on live television to immediately evacuate an area north of Bangkok. Within 20 minutes, he and his colleagues from the government’s flood emergency team were back on the air to rescind the order. “I’m confused every time I hear the warning from the government,” said Somjai Dokkam, a 51-year-old female recycling worker in Bang Kradee, north of Bangkok, whose house was flooded

Wednesday morning. Adding to the discontinuity in the public message have been the discrepancies between Yingluck’s government and that of Bangkok Governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra, who belongs to a rival party. Sukhumbhand has consistently said Bangkok will likely face flooding even as Yingluck’s government has expressed confidence that the city’s defenses will hold up. The governor mobilized droves of citizens to build sand-bag levees Tuesday, saying flooding in many neighborhoods was otherwise imminent. The city so far has escaped substantial flooding, thanks to dikes, underground tunnels and other defenses, though floodwaters have been seeping into some northern neighborhoods. In Bang Kradee, 49year-old Prasit Thamnita, a worker at Thammasat University, said the best approach was to simply rely on his own judgement. “I’ve lived here my whole life, so I knew the water was definitely coming. The government doesn’t know better than the locals,” he said. “I only rely on myself and the local municipality for any news about the water,” he said. Elsewhere in Bang Kradee, defenders were making a last stand at an industrial park threatening to become the sixth major one in Thailand to be swamped. Flooding of five other industrial parks north of Bangkok has idled hundreds of factories and about 200,000 workers while disrupting regional supply chains for computer hard drives and automobiles.

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

A review of the DRAFT Program of Projects to be funded with Federal Transit Administration Fiscal Year 2011 allocations for the Dayton Urbanized Area. The Job Access-Reverse Commute and New Freedom programs provide federal funds to transit agencies, governmental authorities, private providers of public transportation and duly-formed private, not-for-profit organizations to assist in the provision of transportation for low income job seekers (Job Access-Reverse Commute) and people with disabilities (New Freedom) in Greene, Miami, Montgomery and northern Warren Counties. New Freedom capital projects can include infrastructure such as sidewalk and bus stop improvements, which can be shown to result in greater access for people with disabilities to regularly scheduled transit service. JARC capital projects can include construction of bus shelters in low-income neighborhoods. These projects were derived from the Region’s Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Coordination Plan and are competitively selected from project applications submitted to MVRPC. Following the public comment period, staff will evaluate each project according to pre-determined scoring criteria and recommend selected projects to the Board for funding at or before the December 2011 meeting.

Rain has its way

BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor After the last five points of Wednesday’s match, Troy coach Michelle Owen could only shake her head. She’d seen this too many times before. In a match where both teams had all kinds of problems holding onto any lead, Troy seemed to have all the momentum after falling behind by two games, winning the third and taking a sizable lead early in the fourth.

Bulldogs fall; 3 other matches postponed Staff Reports One match was postponed for the second straight night and two matches originally scheduled for Wednesday were pushed back, joining yet another match from Tuesday to be played tonight after two straight nights of rain. Troy’s Division I Sectional matchup at Miamisburg — a team it tied 1-1 on the road earli-

TROY But the rival Piqua Indians crept back into the fourth game and, with the score tied at 20-20, won the final five points to close out a four-game victory in the second round of the Division I Troy Sectional, 27-25, 25-16, 1825, 25-20 Wednesday at the Trojan Activities Center. “It came down to unforced errors and some unlucky rolls, and that’s been the story of our season,” Owen said. “All of our losses this season it seems have been like that. I can’t even tell you how many games we’ve lost by two points. “In Game 4, we got up by five but let them creep back in. And

The 13th-seeded Indians — who hadn’t won a sectional game in at least the last four years — swept No. 19 Botkins Wednesday night 25-10, 25-17, 27-25 to earn the right to face No. 2 Ft. Loramie Saturday in the Division IV Tipp City Sectional final. And first-year coach Julie Overman has watched the team mature in less than one full season. “From day one to now, we’re a different team altogether,” Overman said. “I’ve seen tremendous strides. We’re a very competitive team now.

A welcome quiet around OSU on bye COLUMBUS (AP) — Things are quiet around Ohio State these days. That’s a good thing. For a change, the Buckeyes have had only light practices in their bye week. And there were no uncomfortable NCAA questions, no talk about suspensions, no reminders of their three painful losses. Instead, the Buckeyes took time to heal their many bumps and bruises the physical ones

accumulated through seven games and the emotional ones from a year of turmoil and change. They also reflected on where they’ve been and where they’re headed. “You’ve always got to look at yourself. That’s what you do when you have some extra time,” interim coach Luke Fickell said. “You do those evaluations of yourself and what you’ve done in

the first few games. We have a good assessment of that, but sometimes when you really step back and go back and watch it you get a different feel.” After some self-analysis, the Buckeyes (4-3, 1-2 Big Ten) begin looking ahead to a mammoth showdown with No. 4 Wisconsin on Oct. 29 that can make or break their season. “We’ll take this off week and heal up our bodies a little bit,”

linebacker Storm Klein said. “Then we’re getting right after Wisconsin.” The Badgers are light years from having a week off. They’ve got a trip to No. 15 Michigan State the only team to beat them in the regular season last fall on Saturday night. Meanwhile, the Buckeyes are still basking in their biggest win

Buckeyes ■ CONTINUED FROM B1 of the season, a 17-7 victory at No. 16 Illinois on Saturday. In that game, the defense did its job and the offense stole a page from the Ohio State teams of the 1950s and ’60s. Of the Buckeyes’ 55 plays, they passed on just four, completing one. That proportion was just fine with the guys at the non-skill positions on offense. “As an offensive line, you like that a lot when you’re running the ball and (the defense) knows it,” said Mike Adams, a left tackle who made his second appearance of the season after sitting out the first five games for accepting cash and discounted or free tattoos that kicked off a AP PHOTO lengthy NCAA investigaOhio State running back Dan Herron (1) runs over tion. “You kind of just go out Illinois’ Ashante Williams (25) and Whitney Mercilus there and say, ‘Well, stop (85) during the first half Saturday in Champaign, Ill. me.’ We always say football

OSU proposes ‘scarlet out’ COLUMBUS — The “white out” had a nice ring to it. Then there was the “black out,” again a clever play on words to describe fans dressing in one color to turn a stadium into a palette. Now Ohio State is suggesting a “scarlet out”? That indeed will be one of the promotions when the Buckeyes host No. 4 Wisconsin at 8 p.m. on Oct. 29. Ohio State is encouraging fans to dress warm but in scarlet to “display a unity that only 100,000-plus fans clad in scarlet can accomplish.” is a game of momentum and that’s definitely a way to get momentum on your side, to run the ball all over a defense.” Fullback Zach Boren was as surprised as anyone when the coaches just kept sending in running play after running play. “Going into it, during the week, we were throwing the ball a lot and spreading it out and stuff like that,” Boren said. “It’s one of the

those things that when you get into the game the plays keep getting called and we were running the ball so we just kept at it. It’s getting into the game flow and feeling what you’re most comfortable with and just going with it.” Fickell made no apologies for the ground assault against the previously unbeaten Illini. “I’m excited we got the win and we got it any way

we could,” he said, citing his team adapting to the strong winds that buffeted Memorial Stadium. “Whether it was the weather conditions, or how the game was going, that’s what we stuck with.” Still, he recognizes that the Buckeyes cannot continue to hand the ball off every play. Eventually a defense will put enough people in the right positions to shut down the running game. Then Ohio State will be forced to pass. “Obviously, we’ve got to get more balance and we’ll do a better job at that,” he said. “There were more passes called and there were some situations that obviously didn’t end up being a pass, but we know there’s got to be more balance but we’re excited about the result. And that’s the most important thing.”

(Not) going deep Browns passing game failing to get ball down the field BEREA (AP) — Colt McCoy has battled the opinion he’s too short to play quarterback in the NFL. Now, it’s his throws that aren’t long enough. McCoy is averaging just 5.53 yards per completion this season, the league’s second-lowest average and a stat that perhaps best sums up Cleveland’s woeful lack of big passing plays so far this season. Also, the Browns (2-3) have just eight completions over 20 yards, a league-worst mark and one that has raised questions about McCoy’s arm strength, his grasp of the club’s new offense and whether the team’s front office has given him enough weapons. “We’d like to try and get it deep a lot,” McCoy said Wednesday. “I’d like to throw it down field, and throw touchdowns, but I think it’s a collective effort.” More like a collective failure. Forced to throw on nearly every down last weekend after falling behind in a loss at Oakland, McCoy completed just 21 of 45 passes, 38 of which were deemed “short” on the official game summary. McCoy, who now has 13 career starts, has opted for the safer dink-and-dunk approach as defenses have been able to drop back and take away the Browns’ ability to throw deep. First-year Cleveland coach Pat Shurmur has been careful not to publicly criticize his young quarterback, who because of the lockout was forced to take a crash course in the multifaceted West Coast system, which puts a premium on the QB’s ability to quickly recognize coverages and deliver the ball promptly and on target. But after five games, McCoy isn’t catching on. His completion percentage of 55,8 percent ranks him 27th overall, an alarming drop for the former Texas star who completed 60 percent of his passes in eight starts as a rookie and 70 percent during a fouryear college career. McCoy is averaging 19 incompletions per game. “He needs to just get better,” Shurmur said when asked to explain McCoy’s

Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy (12) passes against the Oakland Raiders in the fourth quarter in Oakland, Calif. Sunday. imprecision. “I don’t think there’s any one thing. I go back to footwork all the time. It’s footwork, timing, accuracy and we just continue to work on it.” With one of the league’s youngest rosters, the Browns are indeed a work in progress. But McCoy’s development is essential for the team to finally make significant strides toward contention. If McCoy isn’t the answer, and it appears the team has committed this season to finding out if he is, then the rebuilding plan will have to start anew. Shurmur said there’s plenty of blame to go around on an offense starting a rookie guard and waiting for playmakers to emerge. But it all starts with the man behind center.

“If you’re going to win games, the quarterback needs to play well,” Shurmur said. “I really believe that. What ‘well’ means is that he’s got to play well throughout the game or, if he’s not playing well early, find a way to get on track and finish the game strong.” There’s still time for growth and improvement, and McCoy is determined to get it right. One of Cleveland’s biggest problems has been starting slowly. The Browns have been outscored 34-3 in the first quarter. They’ve recovered well in the second quarter, scoring 45 of their 91 points. But the early deficits have forced McCoy to be perfect and taken much of his margin for error.

“That’s just pretty poor,” McCoy said about the firstquarter disparity. “We’ve got to do a better job. For whatever reason, we just come alive (in the second quarter) and that’s how offense is supposed to work, right there. We know we can do it. We’ve just got to collectively not mess up. Don’t mess up on the little things. Don’t screw basic plays up and if we can do that across the board, then I think as a team, as an offense, we’ll move the ball and have an opportunity to win. “But when you beat yourself up and slow yourself down by messing up on little things, that’s when you get out of rhythm and all of a sudden it’s third and long and you’re off the field. That’s the frustrating part.”

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — On the second play of practice for Oakland’s starting offense, Carson Palmer stepped in and ran a play. The question now is whether Palmer can do enough this week to earn the starting quarterback job for the Raiders in place of the injured Jason Campbell. Palmer shared firstteam snaps Wednesday with Kyle Boller, who has been with the Raiders the past two seasons and has a big advantage in terms of knowledge of the offense and chemistry with the receivers. But Palmer has the stronger pedigree and was acquired at a high price, meaning the Raiders will give him every possible chance to get that job as the starter on Sunday against Kansas City. “It’s one day,” coach Hue Jackson said. “I’m not in a rush. I don’t have to rush that decision. I’m going to take my time and see where they are and see how fast he picks up the system, see how fast he gets in line with his teammates and we’ll kind of go from there.” It’s been a whirlwind few days for Palmer, who was a retired player in Southern California on Monday. That changed Tuesday when Oakland shipped a 2012 first-round pick and a second-rounder in 2013 that could become another first if the Raiders make it to the AFC title game to Cincinnati for

Palmer. Palmer had to pass a physical, meet his new teammates, start learning the playbook and then start shaking off the rust in his first practice since the end of last season. “There’s definitely a learning curve involved for sure and I noticed that right off the bat,” Palmer said. “But it was exciting. It was fun to be playing football, it was fun to be in a huddle again, it was fun to be throwing routes in 7 on 7 and teams and all these things. But I definitely have my work cut out for me as far as getting the verbiage down, especially when it comes to playing the quarterback position.” Palmer retired during the offseason rather than return to the Bengals. Cincinnati had refused to trade him but finally relented Tuesday when the Raiders made their big offer after Campbell broke his collarbone. Jackson said he had some concerns about starting a player at quarterback after only three practices with the team but that won’t necessarily stop him from doing it. “I kind of like it like that,” Jackson said. “I think he kind of likes it like that. I think we all do. But we’ll make the right decision for this football team. We’ve got a game to win, and that’s the most important thing. Whatever I think is going to help us win this football game that’s what I’m going to do.”

Tebow has faith in Broncos’ remaining receivers ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Tim Tebow isn’t fretting over losing his top target in a trade this week or the idea that another one of his receivers also wanted out of Denver. The Broncos’ new starting quarterback said he has faith Eric Decker, Matt Willis, Demaryius Thomas and Eddie Royal will do just fine following the trade of Pro Bowl receiver Brandon

Lloyd to the St. Louis Rams. Thomas hasn’t played a down this season and Royal’s been out for a month with a strained groin. Both are expected to play Sunday in Miami when Tebow makes his first start of the season. Lloyd said earlier this week that his desire to leave Denver had nothing to do with Tebow’s promotion, and on Wednesday, Tebow

wished Lloyd “nothing but the best.” “I know he’s going to have a great career there in St. Louis, but I really believe in our receivers here.” Tebow said. “I think we’ve got a lot of great receivers and I know any of them can at any time step up and make big plays and I know they’re going to.” Royal said he’s happy to be in Denver after reports

surfaced over the weekend that he also wanted to be dealt by Tuesday’s trade deadline. “Of course I’m happy to be here. I love playing for the Broncos, love the fans, love the organization,” Royal said. “I never requested a trade. I don’t know where that came from. I’m happy to be here and excited to get back on the field with my guys.”

Asked if his agent, Todd France, had sought a trade on his behalf, Royal told The Associated Press he hadn’t talked to his agent about being dealt. France didn’t immediately return a message left by the AP. Royal said he was excited to play with Tebow, and the former Florida star said the feeling was mutual, suggesting all this trade talk didn’t harm his relationship

with the most experienced receiver remaining on the roster. “It’s not uncomfortable at all. Eddie is a great guy. We’re great friends,” Tebow said. “I know he loves being here as a Bronco and we love having him. I know he’s going to be a great asset coming back out here and working with us, and I know he’s going to be a great asset for the rest of the season.”

■ CONTINUED FROM B1 at 20-20, it’s a match to five points. It was a war the whole way, though. We knew it would be.” The Trojans’ (13-10) season came to an end with the loss despite monstrous efforts from Jenna Selby and Marie Rank. Selby led the way with a match-high 16 kills and six blocks, and Rank — a senior who missed a lot of time in the early part of the season with an injury but came on strong at the end — saved her best match for last with 12 kills, an ace, two blocks and three digs. “We had a good gameplan, and we executed it well,” Owen said. “We didn’t think they could stop our two middles — and realistically, they didn’t all night. Marie stepped up and Jenna stepped up.” Troy looked strong at the match’s start, leading by as many as 9-4 thanks to a series of kills and a block by Selby. But Piqua finally got off the bus, tied the game at 13-13 and took its first lead at 14-13 after a pair of kills by Brooke Reinke — who also had 16 kills in the match. Neither team led by more than two the rest of the way. Troy, in fact, had a chance to win with the score 24-23 and the serve, but Piqua tied the score and took a one-point lead. A kill by Selby tied it at 2525, but Haley Monroe and Shelby Vogler put down back-to-back kills to finish it off. “Game 1 was big for us. To not close that one out, that hurt — especially up 24-23 and us with the ball,” Owen said. Piqua looked ready to close out the match early in Game 2, jumping out on a five-point run to begin. But the Indians couldn’t hold the lead either, and Troy fought back to tie it at 9-9. That’s when Reinke took over, though, and Piqua cruised to a 25-16 win. It was the last Reinke was heard from until the end of the match. “We made some adjustments defensively to silence them (Reinke and Vogler), and they really worked,” Owen said. “And early on we didn’t serve as tough as we wanted to. We only had two aces going into the third game — and we finished with seven in

■ CONTINUED FROM B1 “There’s a desire to win in every girl on the floor and on the bench. They just needed to be pushed.” Cheyenne Quillen led the way with 10 kills, six blocks and 11 digs. Morgan King added eight kills, Fawn King dished out 24 assists and Trinity Lavy had 18 digs. Saturday’s match against Ft. Loramie will now be played at 3 p.m. instead of the original time of 3:15 p.m. Division II Sectional Tippecanoe 3, Ben Logan 2 NEW CARLISLE — After two tournament games, Tippecanoe is finally stepping into unfamiliar territory — of sorts. The Red Devils defeated Ben Logan in five games Tuesday night, winning 14-25, 25-23, 2522, 22-25, 15-8 to earn a date in tonight’s Division II New Carlisle Sectional final against 23-1 Urbana — a team it did not play in the regular season. The Devils defeated Ben Logan in five in the regular season, as well, and the team they faced in the first round — Northwestern — they defeated in four games in both the regular season and the tournament. Taylor Mullins, as she has all season, did a bit of

But when Troy built a 10-5 lead in Game 4, that looked like a huge mistake. A block by Bri Jumper ended a four-point Trojan run, caused an eruption in the stands and forced a Piqua timeout — and the Indians looked to be in serious trouble. But a fourpoint Piqua run that included two aces by Taylor Bachman cut the lead to two at 12-10, and a pair of kills by Monroe and a Troy error tied the game at 1515 — and forced Troy to call timeout. Three Piqua errors put Troy back on top, but a series of errors by the Trojans — including two instances where a diving player made a save but couldn’t get out of the way for a follow-up by someone else — made it a 19-19 game, and a double hit on a set gave Piqua its first lead. Troy tied the game on a tip-kill by Mackenzie Rice, but Piqua ran off the next five straight points — including kills by Reinke on the final two — to win it. “We had nine kills and eight hitting errors in that last game,” Owen said.

Competition from top to bottom Troy’s Cassandra Rice (17) passes the ball during a match against Piqua Wednesday. “That hurts. We want to hit at 30 percent every game, and we hit at 2 percent there. You’re not going to win many games hitting like that.” Leah Selby finished with four kills, two aces and eight digs, Jennifer Monnier had three kills, three blocks and a dig, Jumper had two kills and five blocks, Emily Moser had three kills, a block and

two digs, Mackenzie Rice had a kill, an ace, 12 assists and nine digs, Chelsey Sakal had 25 assists, two aces and four digs, Tori Fenter had an ace and 12 digs, Cassandra Rice had 19 digs, Danielle Wright had eight digs and Jillian Ross had a dig. Piqua (18-6) moves on to face the winner between Beavercreek and Butler in Saturday’s sectional final.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Kevin Chappell was on the Magnolia Course practice range at Disney, his only concern getting in nine holes of practice under gathering clouds and trying to remember which golf cart was his. It’s a relaxing week at the Children’s Miracle Network Classic, but not for everyone. So when Chappell saw a familiar face behind him, he asked, “Are you paying attention to the top or the bottom?” For a town geared toward amusement, stress is running high across from the Magic Kingdom.

At the top is Webb Simpson and Luke Donald, who are No. 1 and No. 2 on the PGA Tour money list, both believing that to win the money title would also make them heavy favorites to win player of the year. At the bottom are players who are struggling to finish in the top 125 to keep full-time jobs for next year. “I’m here to win the money title, and I’m probably going to need to win to do that,” said Donald, who is $363,029 behind Simpson. “So it feels a little bit like the FedEx Cup and the Tour Championship. Third place isn’t going to get it done.”

Shocking death overshadows title ning goal with 60 seconds left. We went up 2-0, then they had a kid take my goalie out and it didn’t get called. Had to put a kid in that had never played goalie before, and he made some nice plays. Then he had the ball in his hands, their kid kicked him in the face and it went in. They said he didn’t have control of it, so it counted.” Northwestern moves on to face Indian Lake in the second round Saturday. Milton-Union finishes the season 7-7-3. “I can’t complain,” Hogsten said. “At the beginning of the season, we had 14 kids that had never played soccer before on varsity and finished .500. The boys played their hearts out tonight.”

After an eight-hour meeting Wednesday brought their time together to more than 24 hours over

LAS VEGAS (AP) Walking hand-in-hand with his wife, actress Ashley Judd, Dario Franchitti appeared to be in a daze, tears streaming down his face as he passed through the pit stalls at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The Scotsman had just secured a place among IndyCar’s all-time greats with his third straight series title and fourth overall, yet glory had taken a back seat to shock following the death of Dan Wheldon. His title? That didn’t even register until after he was asked about it following a five-lap tribute to Wheldon, who was killed when his car became entangled in a fiery 15-car wreck on the 11th lap of Sunday’s Las Vegas Indy 300. “I’m thinking about Susie and the boys,” Franchitti said of Wheldon’s wife and two small sons. “When I think about them, I’m struggling to hold it together.” Unable to avoid melee unfolding in front of him, Wheldon drove right into the spinning and flying cars. His No. 77 car went sailing over one of the other vehicles, did a mid-air roll and landed cockpit-first into a catch fence on turn 2. Wheldon was airlifted to University Medical Center. Nearly two hours later, IndyCar officials announced he had died. IndyCar decided the cancel the race and instead drivers, tears streaming down their faces, did a fivelap tribute to Wheldon. As they prepared to


Ashley Judd and Dario Franchitti participate in ceremonies before the IndyCar Series Las Vegas Indy 300 Sunday in Las Vegas. return to the track many drivers broke down. Tony Kanaan, a close friend of Wheldon’s, wept almost uncontrollably and had to be comforted by owner and former driver Jimmy Vasser. Franchitti and Danica Patrick, among others, were seen crying in their cars before leaving the pits. After driving around the track three-wide during the tribute, the drivers pulled into their pits and shared hugs with crew members and family. Franchitti’s face was covered in tears as he took his helmet off and shared a long hug with Judd. They walked down pit road, stopping to hug members of other teams before heading up to the media center with owner Chip Ganassi. “It’s sad. It’s really, really

sad,” Franchitti said. “It’s just the ugly side of our sport.” The days following Wheldon’s death, naturally, have been filled with questions: are the speeds too high at LVMS, should that many cars be allowed on the track at the same time, what changes should be made to make the sport safer and should the sport return to LVMS? Sam Schmidt, who runs the team for which Wheldon ran his final two races, wasn’t so quick to point fingers at LVMS, which had been repaved and reconfigured in 2006 to add “progressive banking” designed to increase side-by-side racing. A Las Vegas resident who pushed hard to get the race, Schmidt said Wheldon’s death was an unfortunate accident that

could have happened almost anywhere. “There’s obviously been a lot of changes to the track since we were here last time, and I don’t think I can criticize the track,” he said. “It’s similar to what we do at Texas with a little more speed a few more cars but I don’t think the track’s to blame.” Still, there are questions about whether IndyCar will ever return to Las Vegas. Not only will it forever carry a stigma as the place where Wheldon died, it’s where IndyCar’s grand plans for a spectacular season finale were destroyed with the fiery crash that also injured three other drivers. The series took a gamble to move its season-ending race to Las Vegas, essentially renting the track from owner Bruton Smith and forking over its own money to run the race. Instead of a triumphant finale, the series and its drivers were left with nothing but shock and grief. The week got off to a rousing start with a trip down The Strip by all 34 cars and a tight race for the championship between Franchitti and Will Power. Franchitti entered the race 18 points ahead of Power, whom he had passed on the final race last season for his third title. When Power was caught up in the wreck that killed Wheldon and Franchitti avoided it, the title went to the Scotsman, putting him in elite company.
