Gadhafi captured, killed Former dictator dies after battle in Sirte SIRTE, Libya (AP) — Moammar Gadhafi, Libya’s dictator for 42 years until he was ousted in an uprising-turned-civil war, was killed Thursday as revolutionary fighters overwhelmed his hometown of Sirte and captured the last major bastion of resistance two months after his regime fell. Interim government officials said one of Gadhafi’s sons, his former national security adviser Muatassim, also was killed in Sirte and another, one-time heir apparent, Seif alIslam, was wounded and captured.

• Additional coverage can be found on page A7. The 69-yearold Gadhafi is the first leader to be killed in GADHAFI the Arab Spring wave of popular uprisings that swept the Middle East, demanding the end of autocratic rulers and the establishment of

greater democracy. “We have been waiting for this moment for a long time. Moammar Gadhafi has been killed,” Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril told a news conference in the capital Tripoli. His death decisively ends a regime that had turned Libya into an international pariah and ran the oilrich nation by the whim and brutality of its notoriously eccentric leader. Libya stands on the cusp of a new era, but its turmoil may not be over.


Boehner speaks out WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) released the following statement on the Libyan government’s announcement of the death of Moammar Gadhafi: “Today is a turning point in the Libyan people’s pursuit of freedom. Now it is time for Libya’s Transitional National Council to show the world that it will respect the rights of all Libyans, guide the nation to democracy, and work with the international coalition and its neighbors to secure Libya’s borders and any weapons and weapons materials. It is also my hope that the new Libyan government will work to resolve all issues associated with Gadhafi’s terrorism-sponsored activities. If they do those things, they will find us a willing friend and partner in the years to come.”

YWCA honors women BY BETHANY J. ROYER Ohio Community Media Rain could not dampen the fire of ambition present at the 2011 Women of Excellence award luncheon held at the Country Club on Thursday afternoon and hosted by the YWCA. Honored with the award this year were Ginny Beamish of Troy and Tara Dixon-Engel of Dayton, with the Young Woman of Excellence being presented to Amy Marie Young of West Milton. The awards are presented to women in the area who have shown outstanding dedication to their community and career through distinguished activities. The first recipient of the afternoon was Beamish, a graduate of Heidelberg University in Tiffin who began her teaching career in 1970 at Hook Elementary in Troy. After staying home for five years with her three children, Beamish returned to the teaching field as the first kindergarten teacher for the Overfield Early Childhood Program. She continued in that position until 2002, when she joined the Upper Valley Career Center as a senior level early childhood education care instructor, before retiring earlier this year.

Women of Excellence award and as she spoke Young is a 2010 graduate of Milton-Union Thursday afternoon she recalled all the great

and amazing things she wanted to accomplish and that they all came down to five life lessons that she shared with those in the audience. Those lessons included being aware of the different seasons in one’s life. “We all go through different seasons,” said Dehus. “Recognize that where you are right now is a season. There’s a time to be a mom, there’s a time to be a coworker, there’s a time for school, time for work. Wherever you are make the most of what you have.” Dehus also recommended having a top list of things one wants to accomplish in their life, or a bucket list. For Dehus, she created a list of 100 things she wanted to do back in high school and one of the first things was to run a marathon. It was something she fell in love with after being selected to carry the Olympic Torch for the Olympic Games Torch Relay in 2002. “Always do what you love,” said Dehus on the third life lesson that brought her to education where she is currently a seventh-grade world history teacher at Northmont. “We’re not always able to do the things that we love due to life circumstances, but even in those times find what you love and still do it.” For lesson number four the mother of two and much requested speaker on character development, is goal setting and leadership advises knowing what you want out of life. “Know what is important to you,” said Dehus, this includes what you want out of your relationships and the type of characters you want to be surrounded with and not to settle. And lesson five? “You’ve got to have a vision, you’ve got to have a plan,” Dehus said and noting that for herself it is still a work in progress, from being a wife, to being a teacher and a mom. ”Always have a vision for yourself.” The Women of Excellence award is a symbol of an inner fire within the recipients and stands as a beacon for others to follow: “It is a flame… the flame which burns with a desire to achieve the flame that produces energy the flame that sparks ideas the flame that warms hearts the flame that ignites action the flame that melts obstacles the flame that serves as a beacon for others to follow It is the flame that casts the light of excellence”

Gadhafi • CONTINUED FROM A1 The former rebels who now rule are disorganized and face rebuilding a country virtually without institutions by Gadhafi’s design. They have already shown signs of infighting, with divisions between geographical areas and Islamist and more secular ideologies. Libya’s new leaders had said they would declare the country’s “liberation” after the fall of Sirte. President Obama said Gadhafi’s death “marks the end of a long and painful chapter” for Libya. Vice President Joe Biden said the Libyan people had rid themselves of a dictator and have now “got a chance” with Gadhafi gone. Footage aired on Arab TV networks showed Gadhafi

ary fighters to make public the full facts of how Gadhafi died, saying all members of the former regime should be treated humanely. The London-based rights group said it was essential to conduct “a full, independent and impartial inquiry to establish the circumstances of Col. Gadhafi’s death.” Out of initial confusion, a clearer picture began to emerge of Gadhafi’s last hours, though there were still contradictions. Most accounts agreed Gadhafi had been holed up with heavily armed supporters in the last few buildings held by regime loyalists in his Mediterranean coastal hometown of Sirte, furiously battling advancing revolutionary fighters. At one point, a convoy tried to flee and was hit by

was captured wounded but alive in Sirte. The goateed, balding Gadhafi is seen in a blood-soaked shirt, and his face bloodied. Standing upright, he is shoved along by a crowd of fighters on a Sirte roadside, chanting “God is great.” Gadhafi appears to struggle against them, stumbling and shouting as the fighters push him onto the hood of a pickup truck. “We want him alive. We want him alive,” one man shouts before Gadhafi is dragged away, some fighters pulling his hair, toward an ambulance. Later footage showed fighters rolling Gadhafi’s lifeless body over on the pavement, stripped to the waist and a pool of blood under his head. Amnesty International called on Libyan revolution-

NATO airstrikes, carried out by French warplanes. France’s Defense Minister Gerard Longuet said the 80vehicle convoy was carrying Gadhafi and was trying to escape the city. The strikes stopped the convoy but did not destroy it, and then revolutionary fighters moved in on the vehicle carrying Gadhafi himself. Fathi Bashaga, spokesman for the Misrata military council, whose forces were involved in the Sirte siege, said fighters encircled the convoy and exchanged fire with several of the vehicles. In one, they found Gadhafi, wounded in the neck, and took him to an ambulance. “What do you want?” Gadhafi said to the approaching revolutionaries, Bashaga said, citing witnesses. Gadhafi bled to death from his wounds a half-hour later, he said. Abdel-Jalil Abdel-Aziz, a doctor who was part of the medical team that accompanied the body in the ambulance and examined it, said Gadhafi died from two bullet wounds, to the head and chest. “You can’t imagine my happiness today. I can’t describe my happiness,” he told The Associated Press. “The tyranny is gone. Now the Libyan people can rest.” Gadhafi’s body was then paraded through the streets of the nearby city of Misrata on top of a vehicle surrounded by a large crowd chanting,

“The blood of the martyrs will not go in vain,” according to footage aired on AlArabiya television. The fighters who killed Gadhafi are believed to have come from Misrata, a city that suffered a brutal weeks-long siege by Gadhafi’s forces during the eight-month long civil war. Celebratory gunfire and cries of “God is Great” rang out across the capital Tripoli. Cars honked their horns and people hugged each other. In Sirte, the ecstatic former rebels celebrated the city’s fall after weeks of bloody siege by firing endless rounds into the sky, pumping their guns, knives and even a meat cleaver in the air and singing the national anthem. The capture of Sirte, the death of Gadhafi, and the death and capture of his two most powerful sons, gives the transitional leaders confidence to declare the entire country “liberated” as they have said they would do. It rules out a scenario that some had feared that he might flee deeper into Libya’s southern deserts and lead a resistance campaign against Libya’s rulers. Information Minister Mahmoud Shammam told AP that Muatassim Gadhafi was killed in Sirte. The justice minister said Gadhafi’s son and one-time heir apparent, Seif al-Islam, had been wounded in the leg and was being held in a hospital in the city of Zlitan, northwest of Sirte.

Ohio man who freed wild animals was deep in debt ZANESVILLE, (AP) — The exotic-animal owner who killed himself after turning loose dozens of lions, tigers and other beasts was deep in debt, and a fellow big-cat enthusiast said Thursday that he had taken in so many creatures he was “in over his head.” A day after sheriff ’s deputies with high-powered rifles killed nearly 50 animals set free by Terry Thompson, the sheriff refused to speculate why he did it. Many neighbors, meanwhile, were puzzled as to why Thompson — a man who seemed to like animals more than people — would lash out in a way that would doom his pets. However, court records show that he and his wife owed at least $68,000 in unpaid taxes to the IRS and the county, and he had two federal tax liens filed against him last year. He had just gotten out of federal prison last month for possessing unregistered weapons. Kenny Hetrick, who has six tigers and other animals on his property outside Toledo, said he used to see Thompson at exoticanimal auctions a few times a year in Ohio. Many of Thompson’s tigers had been donated to him by people who bought baby animals that they no longer wanted once they started to grow, Hetrick said. “He really had more there than what he could do,” Hetrick said. “I don’t know what his deal was, but he was in over his head.” On Tuesday, Thompson, 62, threw open the cages at his animal preserve and committed suicide. His body was found near the empty cages with a bite on the head that appeared to have been inflicted by a big cat shortly after Thompson shot himself, Sheriff Matt


A stuffed animal with a sympathy card attached hangs from the locked gate at the Muskingum County Animal Farm Thursday, in Zanesville. Lutz said. It appeared his body had been dragged a short distance, Lutz said. Deputies killed 48 animals — including 18 rare Bengal tigers, 17 lions and eight bears — in a hunt across the Ohio countryside that lasted nearly 24 hours. Only a monkey was still missing, and it was probably killed by one of the big cats, Lutz said. Thompson had run-ins with his neighbors and the law over escaped animals and conditions at his preserve. But whether he acted out of desperation or vengeance in setting the animals loose was unclear. “I know how much he cared for them, and he would know that they would be killed,” said Judy Hatfield, a family friend who visited the farm many times and said it wasn’t unusual to have a monkey jump on her lap. “I don’t know what happened. I’m sure some horrible thing happened to him yesterday to make him do this or allow him to lose focus for a moment and do it. But I don’t know what it is, and we may never know.” The sheriff said Thompson’s intentions were not part of the investiga-

tion. “To take your own life, Mr. Thompson was not in the right state of mind,” Lutz said. “And to speculate on why he did this would be a belittlement, I guess, by me, to do that, and I’m not going to do that.” Thompson and his wife spent much of their time and money caring for their menagerie, neighbors said. Most of the big cats and bears were declawed and had been bottle-fed by the Hatfield said. couple, Thompson also kept them fed by picking up roadkill and collecting spoiled meat from grocery stores, said another neighbor, Fred Polk. The sheriff said that he spoke with Thompson’s wife and that she was distraught over the loss of her husband and the animals. “You have to understand these animals were like kids to her,” Lutz said. “She probably spent more time with these animals than some parents do spend with their kids.” Thompson’s Muskingum County Animal Farm was not open to visitors, but he would occasionally take some of the smaller animals to nearby pet shows or nursing homes.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Arab News, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on possible change in Myanmar: Burma or Myanmar as it is known these days is like another planet for much of the international community. What goes on in there is of little interest to the self-appointed movers and shakers of our world. For all practical purposes, Myanmar fell off the world map. The Western powers, ever eager to intervene in countries in the Middle East, have done little more than pay lip service to the long suffering people of the Southeast Asian nation. Maybe because Myanmar doesn’t have oil — at least not enough to invite Western interest. Myanmar’s Asian neighbors haven’t fared any better. The regional grouping, ASEAN, has scrupulously avoided any references to “internal matters” of the member state for fear of ruffling the junta. Myanmar’s giant neighbors China and India, enjoying robust economic ties and massive clout with Rangoon, too have failed to persuade the As I generals to mend their ways.

Cosmetic window-dressing will not bring respite to Myanmar, only real change will. London Evening Standard on the eurozone crisis : The eurozone crisis will not be much lessened by the likelihood that the Slovak parliament will now reverse its veto of the eurobailout plans. The expansion of the European Financial Stability Facility is now likely to go ahead. But the point was well made by Slovak opponents that the deal means poorer eurozone countries bailing out richer ones. As for the argument that it might be preferable for Greece to leave the euro, that is now being voiced far beyond Bratislava. As matters stand, the bailout fund still needs to be bolstered. And the deal reached in July, the subject of the Slovak vote, has already been overtaken by events. Greek investors will have to take an even bigger haircut on discounting the value of their bonds; as for the bailout facility, it will have to be far bigger. There will be more debates like this one before long.

Miami East has received an “Excellent with Distinction” rating for several years now making it one of the top districts, not just in this area but in the entire state. Financial support from the citizens is imperative to ensure continued excellence. Therefore, please join Justin Roeth and me in voting YES for Miami East Local Schools on Nov. 8.


Nothing beats pulling a prank on a city slicker One of the best parts of living in the country is all the agriculture jokes and pranks you can pull on a “townie.” My favorite “townie” to mess with is Mr. Obvious. Now, Mr. Obvious is a smart guy. He can do complicated math problems in his head — for fun. It’s cute how clueless he is when it comes to all things agriculture. So the last few weeks while working on painting every square inch of my soon-to-be home, I have been honing my farming fairy tales and my prey was Mr. Obvious and his lack of ag-savvy: 1. Raising Jack-a-lopes: “Hey Mr. Obvious, do you know where I can buy six-foot tall fencing?” I asked the construction guru one evening. “I need extra tall fencing for the jack-a-lopes so they don’t kill my Pygmy goats with their sharp horns.” “Jack-a-lopes? Wait. This isn‘t like snipe hunting is it? Cause I went snipe hunting once and I never caught one,” he revealed. Darn it. Someone already got to him on the snipe hunting. “Oh no dear. Well, speaking of deer, dear. They are kind of like deer/rabbit combo with minihorns, and they can leap over regular fences. People raise jack-a-

Melanie Yingst Troy Daily News Columnist lope because they taste like chicken. Our family usually drops them off at Caven’s to make jerky out of them. The Indians used their horns in medicine and spiritual sacrifice ceremonies. They were almost extinct like the do-do bird.” “Oh, OK. I’ll look for fencing tomorrow,” Mr. Obvious said as he continued to paint. The next morning I received the following text message: Good morning! I just Googled jack-alopes. I knew they weren’t real! Darn Google. At least he believe me for eight hours. 2. The Corn Listener: Mr. Obvious likes to ask questions about the farm equipment. Since Dad had been running beans and sowing wheat, Mr. Obvious wanted to know why he hadn’t harvested corn yet.

— Eric Hacker Troy

“The corn isn’t ready, most of the ears haven‘t dropped yet — that’s where the haircut expression ‘Got to get my ears lowered’ originated. You know why they call it an ear of corn don’t ya?” I reply. I am going to Hades. “Because it sticks out of the stalk thingy?” Mr. Obvious replied feeling sure of his answer. “Well, they call it an ear of corn because in the olden days, the farmer had to go in the middle of the field to hear if the corn was ready,” I say. I’ve found if you use the term “Olden Days,” people are more likely to believe you. “The farmer would go in the field, crouch down ,and go “ear-to-ear” with the cob. If the dry corn stalk leaves rustled together — it’s ready. If there’s silence, they’d wait awhile.” Then my mom had to ruin it by laughing. 3. Have a Safe Hard Vest Season: The other night there was a beautiful, bright harvest moon so I quickly pointed out the beautiful orange glowing light to Mr. Obvious. “I wonder how harvest got its name?” Mr. Obvious asked. He really shouldn’t set himself up for this. Bless his heart. “You’ve never heard the harvest

story in school? Well, back in the day, farmers used large Budweiser draft horses or big, beefy oxen and other large, burly animals to bring in the grain from the fields,” I say. “Like Pa’s horses on Little House on the Prairie?” he asked innocently. “Yes. Just like on Little House on the Prairie. Well, back then, farmers’ wives would make ‘hardvests’ using straw or hay stuffed in burlap or flour sacks. The farmer would then strap the burlap/flour sacks or ‘hard vests’ on their chests during the autumn season so big animals wouldn’t crush them if they got loose or out of control in the fields. So originally, it was called Hard Vest season but, gradually, society dropped the “d” sound and so now it’s called harvest season.” “That makes sense,” Mr. Obvious said in as he admired the Hard Vest moon. So, from my family to yours, we hope all you farmers have a safe and successful Hard Vest season this fall! “Twin” Melanie Yingt appears on Fridays in the Troy Daily News. Once again, she thanks God she’s a country girl.

United Way discount card available TROY — Thanks to a free drug discount card provided by United Way of Troy there is now help to lower the cost of medicine. “No one should be forced to choose between paying for food, rent or medicine because of the high cost of prescriptions. That’s why we’ve partnered with FamilyWize to distribute free prescription discount cards to everyone in the Troy area,” said Executive Director Richard Bender of the United Way of Troy. “People in our community have already saved over $50,000 just by using the FamilyWize card.” FamilyWize cards immediately lower

the cost of medicine by an average of 35 percent or more for people without insurance or who take medications not covered by their plan. Just by presenting the FamilyWize card at their local pharmacy, customers save on the cost of their prescription medicine 80 percent of the time. “So many people are struggling with the high cost of medicine and need help right now. We knew we couldn’t wait years for healthcare reform to be implemented. The FamilyWize card provides immediate savings on prescription medicines, with no paperwork or forms to fill out,” said Dan Barnes, co-chair of The FamilyWize Community Service Partnership. These cards can be used by everyone in the community, not just people without insurance. They can even be used by people with health benefits, including Medicaid or Medicare. The FamilyWize card is easy to use: • It’s Free • For immediate and unlimited use • Accepted at 95 percent of pharmacies nationwide • No age/income restrictions • No enrollment or personal information needed “The United Way of Troy proudly joins 1,000 United Ways in all 50 states who have already saved more than $225 million as of July 2011 on prescriptions in their communities and distributed more than 20 million cards nationwide. Together, we hope to reduce the cost of medicine $1 billion by the end of 2015”, said Bender. FamilyWize cards can be found locally at the United Way office at 233 South Market Street or at most area pharmacies and United Way agencies. People with internet access can go to or to to print a card. For more information or a list of participating pharmacies, call the United Way of Troy office at 335-8410.

Testing • CONTINUED FROM A1 contamination) was that far (south) down the river,” Kolak said Thursday. She and Don de Blasio, U.S. EPA Community Involvement Coordinator, were in Troy this week for meetings with Troy officials and a public presentation Wednesday on the EPA’s ongoing monitoring and remediation efforts at the East Troy Contaminated Aquifer Superfund Site. The presentation at Van Cleve School drew about 30 attendees, including civic and governmental officials and about 15 interested residents. WATER WELLS The EPA plans to install 14 new groundwater monitoring wells within the East Troy Superfund site this fall, in addition to the 19 already in place, Kolak said at the meeting. Kolak said some of the goals of the ongoing EPA investigation is to establish whether the contamination is contained within one plume or two separate plumes, determine the boundaries of the contamination, and ascertain if the contamination is moving in a northeast direction underneath the river, which would threaten some of the city’s water wells. A 2003 study contracted by the city said the contamination is moving in a southeasterly direction, away from the river. The city conducts regular testing of its drinking water supply and no contamination has been found, according to Troy Service and Safety Director Patrick Titterington. In addition to conducting groundwater testing and monitoring, the EPA over the past several years also has installed air vapor monitoring devices inside 17 buildings within the East Troy Superfund site, including 16 residen-

Vapor monitors available Residents within the East Troy Contaminated Aquifer Superfund Site who have not yet had air vapor monitoring devices installed by the EPA have until Nov. 7 to contact the EPA to have a device installed. The site is bounded by Race Street to the south, Market Street to the west, the Great Miami River to the north and Oak Street to the east. For a vapor monitoring device, or for more information on the East Troy Contaminated Aquifer Superfund Site, contact: Shari Kolak, U.S. EPA Remedial Project Manager, at 312-886-6151, or via e-mail at: Or, Don de Blasio, U.S. EPA Community Involvement Coordinator, at 312-886-4360, or via email at Or locally, contact Tom Funderburg, city of Troy Assistant Service and Safety Director, at 335-1725, or via email at:

tial dwellings and St. Patrick School. Kolak and de Blasio said they are now attempting to contact owners of 36 properties within the contaminated area, mostly residential dwellings, that have so far declined to have monitoring devices installed or to cooperate with the EPA. De Blasio said he understands people may be reticent, but touted the benefits of working with the EPA. “It doesn’t cost a cent. The advantages are that your health is protected, at no cost to you,” he said. As a designated Superfund site, the EPA is able to more readily secure the funding necessary to investigate and clean up the site, Kolak said. Contamination in the area was first reported to the EPA in 1996 by officials of Kimberly-Clark, which operated a manufacturing facility at 513 E. Water St. That facility is now operated by Spinnaker Coating. Kimberly Clark has acknowledged to the Ohio EPA that it dumped chemicals at their site, and subsequent testing has confirmed the presence of Trichloroethylene (TCE) and other chemicals.

At Wednesday’s meeting, Kolak laid out a proposed timeline for additional work at the Superfund site. She said the EPA plans to evaluate previous Phase 1 data, collect additional samples and continue the vapor sampling in the spring and summer of 2012. Phase 2 sampling is set for the spring and fall of 2012. A remedial investigation and a feasibility study is scheduled for the fall of 2012, with a proposed remediation plan and public hearing scheduled by the spring of 2013. Kolak said the schedule is based on the fact that there is no immediate health threat from the contamination within the East Troy Contaminated Aquifer Superfund Site. “If there was some immediate threat, we’d act on it immediately, but right now, there is no immediate threat. With a long-term threat like this, we have time to study it and determine how we’re going to deal with it and, ultimately, remove (the contamination),” Kolak said. The MCD did not immediately respond to a call for comment on Thursday.

Photographer who captured rock’s golden age dies at 80 WOODSTOCK, New York (AP) — Photographer Barry Feinstein, who captured behind-the-scenes images from rock’s golden age and shot iconic album covers for Bob Dylan and George Harrison, died in upstate New York on Thursday. He was 80. Agent Dave Brolan said Feinstein, who lived in Woodstock, suffered various ailments and was hospitalized with an infection. Feinstein’s best known images include the picture of a skinny, sideglancing Dylan on the cover of 1964’s “The Times They Are A-Changin’” and of Harrison sitting among garden gnomes on his 1970 solo album, “All Things Must Pass.” However, Feinstein had varied experiences that ranged from working as an assistant at Columbia Pictures, photographing Hollywood stars like Steve McQueen and Judy Garland and later shooting rock royalty of the 1960s and 1970s. He also made films. Feinstein was friends with Dylan’s early manager Albert Grossman. Brolan said the photographer got to know the rising music star on a long ride from Denver to New York to deliver a Rolls Royce to Grossman.

Feinstein’s pictures gave an insider’s view of Dylan’s world. One well-known shot shows Dylan, with dark sunglasses and cigarette, in the back seat of a limousine with fans pressing their faces against the window. Feinstein branched out to other rock work, shooting album covers for Janis Joplin’s “Pearl” and for Eric Clapton, among many others. Despite his proximity to big stars, Brolan said Feinstein never betrayed their confidence. “Barry would never tell you about anyone. He’d never tell you a Dylan story or anything personal. He would never talk about himself,” Brolan said. “It was a hard push to get him to say anything about his work. He’d just say, ‘Look at the pictures, good luck.’” “Hollywood Foto-Rhetoric,” a book of Feinstein’s evocative old Hollywood pictures and poems Dylan wrote in the early 1960s to accompany the images, was published in 2008. Feinstein’s still photographs were used in Martin Scorsese’s documentaries on Dylan and Harrison. He is survived by wife Judith Jamieson and two children from previous marriages.

DEATHS OF NATIONAL INTEREST • Ken Meyerson (AP) — Tennis agent Ken Meyerson, who represented Grand Slam winners Andy Roddick, Chris Evert and Justine Henin, has died. He was 48. Meyerson died Wednesday night at his home in Florida, according to a statement by his agency, Lagardre Unlimited. The cause of death was not immediately known. Meyerson had been president of Lagardre’s tennis division since 2009. “Ken was a very hard worker and was always determined to do his best, both for his clients and for the company,” agency chairman Arnaud Lagardre said in the statement. “His clients were his extended family and there was nothing he wouldn’t, or couldn’t, accomplish on their behalf. Ken is, and will remain, an inspiration to all of our agents.”

Before joining Lagardre, Meyerson was president of BEST Tennis from 2006-09. During a nearly 25-year career in tennis that began in 1987, Meyerson also worked with ProServ, one of the earliest sports management firms, and the SFX Sports Group. As news of his death spread, Meyerson was being honored by a number of agents and players, including American players Mardy Fish and John Isner. Roddick tweeted: “I love you and miss you. I will be forever grateful for your faith & loyalty. You will forever be my brother. As always ‘thanks Meyerson.’” Meyerson is survived by his wife, Claudia, and daughters Charlotte and Emily. Funeral arrangements for Mr. Meyerson are pending.

With warped vision, Gadhafi maddened Libya, West

groomed as a successor — was captured with a gunshot wound to the leg. The final declaration of victory by Gadhafi’s opponents came weeks after he was swept from power by rebels who drove triumphantly into the capital of Tripoli on Aug. 21. “Dance, sing and fight!” Gadhafi had exhorted his followers even as his enemies were on the capital’s doorstep before fleeing into Libya’s hinterlands where his die-hard backers had continued to battle the rebels-turnedrulers. Gadhafi leaves behind an oilrich nation of 6.5 million traumatized by a rule that drained it of institutions while the ship of state

was directed by the whims of one man and his family. Notorious for his extravagant outfits — ranging from white suits and sunglasses to military uniforms with frilled epaulets to brilliantly colored robes decorated with the map of Africa — he styled himself as a combination Bedouin chief and philosopher king. He reveled in infuriating leaders, whether in the West or the Middle East. U.S. President Ronald Reagan, after the 1986 bombing that killed U.S. servicemen in Berlin was blamed on Libya, branded him a “mad dog.” Former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, who fought a border war with Libya in the 1970s, wrote in his diary that Gadhafi

was “mentally sick” and “needs treatment.” Behind the flamboyance and showmanship, associates say Gadhafi was meticulous in managing the levers of power. He intervened in decisions large and small and constantly met personally with tribal leaders and military officers whose support he maintained through lucrative posts. The sole constant was his grip on the country. Numerous coup and assassination attempts against him over the years mostly ended with public executions of the plotters, hanged in city squares. The ultimate secret of his longevity lay in the vast oil reserves under his North African

Obama: Libyans won revolution, opportunity ahead WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama on Thursday cast the demise of Moammar Gadhafi as a momentous opportunity for Libya and its long-suffering people. “You have won your revolution,” he told them. “One of the world’s longest-serving dictators is no more,” Obama said as news of Gadhafi’s death and apparent images of his body took hold across the globe. Obama claimed no personal vindication for his approach to U.S. intervention. But he hailed the success of the NATO effort that was intended to protect civilians and eventually helped force Gadhafi from power. “The dark shadow of tyranny has been lifted,” Obama said from the White House. “And with this enormous promise, the Libyan people now have a great responsibility.” The president said it was the Libyan government that confirmed the death, and he embraced the news, saying: “we can defin-

itively say that the Gadhafi regime has come to end.” He urged a smooth transition to what he hoped would be fair, free elections. Gadhafi was killed Thursday when revolutionary forces overwhelmed his hometown, Sirte. Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril announced to his nation that the moment so many had waited for had come. Gadhafi’s death is the latest in a string of foreign policy victories this year for the Obama administration, including the killing of alQaida leader Osama bin Laden and the recent strike against a radical U.S.-born cleric in Yemen. While the U.S. briefly took the lead in the NATO bombing campaign in Libya, America quickly took a secondary role to its allies. Obama said the joint international effort showed what can be achieved by collective action. “Without putting a single U.S. service member on the ground, we achieved our objectives and our NATO mission will soon come to an end,” he said.

desert nation and in his capacity for drastic changes of course when necessary. The most spectacular U-turn came in late 2003. After years of denial, Libya acknowledged responsibility — though in a Gadhafi-esque twist of logic, not guilt — for the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, that killed 270 people. He agreed to pay up to $10 million to relatives of each victim. He also announced that Libya would dismantle its nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs under international supervision. The rewards came fast. Within months, the U.S. lifted economic sanctions and resumed diplomatic ties. The European Union hosted Gadhafi in Brussels. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in 2008 became the highest-ranking U.S. official to visit the country in more than 50 years. Tony Blair, as British prime minister, visited him in Tripoli. International oil companies rushed to invest in Libya’s fields. Documents uncovered after Gadhafi’s fall revealed close cooperation between his intelligence services and the CIA in pursuing terror suspects after the 9/11 attacks, even before the U.S. lifted its designation of Libya as a sponsor of terror in 2006.

TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — During nearly 42 years in power in Libya, Moammar Gadhafi was one of the world’s most eccentric dictators, so mercurial that he was both condemned and courted by the West, while he brutally warped his country with his idiosyncratic vision of autocratic rule until he was finally toppled by his own people. The modern Arab world’s longest-ruling figure, Libya’s “Brother Leader” displayed striking contrasts. He was a sponsor of terrorism whose regime was blamed for blowing up two passenger jets, who then helped the U.S. in the war on terror. He was an Arab nationalist who mocked Arab rulers. In the crowning paradox, he preached a “revolutionary” utopia of people power but ran a one-man dictatorship that fueled the revolution against him. His death on Thursday at age 69 — confirmed by Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril — came as Libyan fighters defeated Gadhafi’s last holdouts in his hometown of Sirte, the last major site of resistance in the country in an eight-month civil war. Interim government officials said his son, Muatassim, a former national security adviser, was also killed in Sirte on Thursday. Another, British-educated Seif alIslam — widely seen as being

AP MOVIE REVIEWS JOHNNY ENGLISH REBORN: You probably weren’t clamoring for a sequel to the 2003 British spy parody “Johnny English,” which was far more successful overseas than it was in the United States. Still, here it is, again starring Rowan Atkinson. As the secret agent of the title, Johnny thinks he’s as suave and resourceful as James Bond. Mostly, though, he bumbles his way from one situation to the next with the help of all the obligatory weapons and gadgets. Johnny is back at the agency, MI7, after a few years away with a bit of a stigma attached to him. Seems he massively messed up an assignment in Mozambique, and his new boss, Pegasus (Gillian Anderson), lets him know she won’t tolerate those kinds of mistakes from him again. For his next job, Johnny must find out who is behind a plot to assassinate the Chinese premier. And even though he’s been training in the remote mountains of Tibet all this time (in an admittedly amusing montage), Johnny still isn’t quite up for the challenge. Director Oliver Parker’s film relies on a lot of the same tired, repetitive spy spoofs as the “Austin Powers” movies, much of the same false confidence in the face of absurd danger. That any of this works, ever, is a testament to Atkinson’s skills as a comedian. You can sense him slumming and straining but he’s so gifted physically, he makes some pretty idiotic material more enjoyable than it should be. Rosamund Pike and Dominic West co-star. PG for mild action violence, rude humor, some language and brief sensuality. 101 minutes. One and a half stars out of four. — Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic MARGIN CALL: Several movies have tried to get their arms around the unwieldy topic of the 2008 economic collapse. This latest one recreates the earliest moments of the crisis with the tight time frame and claustrophobic setting of a play — a David Mamet play, to be specific. First-time writer-director J.C. Chandor depicts this devastating moment of volatility with a patter that’s reminiscent of Mamet: profane and masculine, with rhythmic repetition of certain key phrases. It may seem a little stagey and actorly, but it’s a fitting approach given the swagger of the characters in this cruel and competitive world, as well as the pressure they feel once they realize how much trouble they, and the rest of the world, are in. “Margin Call” takes place over a 24-hour period, beginning with layoffs at a major Wall Street financial firm. Among the casualties is risk analyst Eric Dale (Stanley Tucci), who passes along to one of his underlings, Peter Sullivan (Zachary Quinto), some figures he was studying on his way out the door. His warning: “Be careful.” Peter digs a little deeper and his realization that Eric was onto something — that the firm is in way over its head and is about to find out its assets are essentially worthless — spreads across his face with a quiet horror. It’s a reaction we’ll see again and again as this discovery gets kicked up the chain of command. The excellent ensemble cast includes Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons, Paul Bettany and Demi Moore. R for language. 107 minutes. Three stars out of four. — Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE: A tongue twister of a title that makes chilling sense as the film unfolds. In quiet, intimate ways, it is one of the most startling, haunting films you’ll see all year. Elizabeth Olsen, younger sister of twin multimedia moguls Mary-Kate and Ashley, stars in the title role. She’s a reserved woman in her 20s who is skittishly fleeing a hippieish cult in upstate New York at the film’s start. She calls her older sister, Lucy (Sarah Paulson), from whom she’s been estranged for a couple of years, for help. At this point, she’s known by her real name of Martha. Writer-director Sean Durkin seamlessly cuts back and forth in time. In the present, Martha is awkwardly trying to assimilate to normal life with Lucy and her husband, Ted (Hugh Dancy), at their peaceful Connecticut lake house. But memories increasingly plague Martha of her time at the idyllic but slightly creepy farm ruled by the calmly charismatic Patrick (John Hawkes). He gave Martha a new name, Marcy May, initiated her through the same ritual all the women there endured and insisted she was his favorite when he sensed her apprehension. Hawkes is frightening without ever raising his voice; he simply radiates menace. And Durkin builds gripping tension through steady camerawork and long takes, naturalistic lighting and ambient noise. He grabs you in a way you may not even actively perceive; rather, he creates a cumulative sensation that sneaks up on you subconsciously. Far and away one of the year’s best. R for disturbing violent and sexual content, nudity and language. 101 minutes. Four stars out of four. — Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic

From glass art to furniture and paintings to ceramics, the ladies of the Country Workshop Artists are offering a vast amount of handmade art for sale this weekend at the Staunton Grange hall during their 25th annual sale. The Country Workshop Artists started around 1958 as a group of women from the Presbyterian church who wanted to get together and knit. Over the years the group has evolved into much more than just an opportunity for women to get together and share a common interest. “They had a bazaar at the church and one of the husbands said they needed to get together,” group member Judy Ritchey said. “They got together at an old street car out at the farm, there was no plumbing, no heating but plenty of sheep.” From 1958 to the present, the women have increased their membership to 22 active members, 10 associate members and three honorary members. They gather as an opportunity to create a number of crafts in different mediums and plan for the bi-annual sale that offers locally made art to the community. The art sale — The Country Workshop Artists Art Sale — has continued to build over the years, and this year’s sale includes 42 outside artists, many of whom are local, but include artists from New York to California. “We have paintings, jewelry, toys, pottery, fiber, glass,” member Shirley Harbaugh said. “In addition to the outside artists many of our artists that are members of the organization will be exhibiting

their paintings and jewelry.” Throughout the years, the ladies said the sale has turned into something that area residents look forward to. It is a chance for many residents to get out and appreciate the talents of the women of the group and to purchase locally made art. “There is one nice little story,” Ritchey said. “Two years ago we were finishing setting up for the morning it was going to open and this lady was knocking on the door. I opened the door and said we haven’t opened yet and she said ‘I come every year and they usually let me in early.’ We let her in and she bought all kinds of things. She said she buys Christmas presents at the shop.” Harbaugh said beyond an opportunity to buy Christmas presents, the sale offers a unique environment and different appeal than other sales in the area — something that makes the Country Workshop Artists sale a highlight for many. “I think the most interesting thing about this sale is that it is so different,” Harbaugh said. “At our sale people are bringing all of the things they are going to sell, we set it all up on display and they can see their jewelry at different locations throughout the sale. We try to make the whole display interesting.” The ladies of the Country Workshop Artists say, in addition to offering locally made art to residents and getting the artists work seen, there is an even larger goal for the sale. “We provide scholarships to Troy High School students,” president Bonnie Rashilla said. “We

give a $500 scholarship every year to a student that is going to an accredited college of art. That scholarship is not restricted to just tuition, they can spend it on tuition, books, paper, paint, sculpturing — whatever they need for their classes. “Other than establishing the fund for the scholarship we love to be able to help the artists, that is our main goal,” Rashilla said, “to have the opportunity to give that artist an opportunity to get out and show their paintings and have their sale.” The artists group has offered a scholarship to an eligible Troy High School student since 1984. The students are chosen by application and portfolio evaluation by Troy art teachers. This year the sale will include a raffle for a traditional German Feather Tree. It is the first year the organization has offered a raffle, but members say the difficult and intricate feather tree is something many residents will appreciate. The sale, which is only offered every other year on odd years, will be open until 6 p.m. today and will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Staunton Grange, 1530 N. Market St., Troy.

Thai P.M.: Flood waters must drain through capital BANGKOK (AP) Thailand’s prime minister acknowledged Thursday that efforts to block floodwaters from entering the Thai capital are failing and authorities will instead risk potential overflow with a controlled release of water through the city’s canals. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra told reporters that every means to slow the water from entering Bangkok had been tried, so at least some must be allowed to drain through the city. Authorities had been making desperate attempts to keep floodgates closed and boost barriers along waterways carrying a deluge of water downstream from the north. The evident result was massive flooding inundating homes and factories in areas north of the city. “We must allow the water to flow through. Very little has been driven to the sea,” Yingluck said. The capital’s governor confirmed Thursday that the gates had been opened. There were no clear indications of what sections of Bangkok would experience flooding, or how badly. Yingluck’s government has come under sharp criticism for a confusing and inadequate response to the flooding, with began in August with heavy rains in northern Thailand. By Thursday, the death toll in nationwide flooding had risen to 320, mostly from drowning, with nearly 9 million people affected and 28 of the country’s 77 provinces still inundated. Initial estimates of the economic cost of destroyed shops, paralyzed factories and swamped farmland were $3 billion, but have

since been rising. Yingluck said the amount of water still flowing down from the north was many times that which was flowing out to the sea. “There’s no way to drain out water because we are blocking it. Sometimes blocking the water caused the barriers to deteriorate, because we didn’t design them to act as dams,” she said. “Today we have exhausted every resource we have to slow down the water, be they damming or water retention areas.” She said Bangkok’s city government had agreed to cooperate in the new plan to drain water. Bangkok Governor Sukhumbhand Patibatra told reporters that the city had opened water gates at every spot, including canals in inner Bangkok, to quickly push the runoff to the sea. Bangkok has so far has escaped serious flooding, thanks to dikes, underground tunnels and other defenses, though floodwaters have been seeping into some northern neighborhoods. However, mixed messages from officials about whether Bangkok will be swamped had fueled fear and confusion over how grave the threat really was. On Thursday, some international schools closed and nervous commuters began parking cars on elevated expressways on the northern side of the capital to keep them safe. Authorities this week said they have suspended operations at four major power plants in the provinces of Phichit, Nakhon Ratchasima and Ayutthaya all north of Bangkok due to flooding; the first was shut in September.

Vikings finish Trojans Troy falls in 1st sectional round Staff Reports CLAYTON — After playing No. 6 Miamisburg to a 1-1 draw on Sept. 17 — and with No. 11 Sidney waiting in the semifinal round — the ninth-seeded Troy Trojans liked their chances of reaching a Division I Sectional final. But waiting an extra night to play, a week’s worth of rain and a change of venue threw a monkey wrench into their plans.

MIAMI COUNTY Miamisburg (11-4-2) edged out Troy 2-1 Thursday night on the turf at Northmont High School to open the sectional tournament and end the Trojans’ season prematurely. “They went up 2-0 in the first half,” Troy coach Richard Phillips said. “We didn’t move the ball well, and they took advantage. “We played a much better second half. We played much more organized and moved the ball well.” Robert Stump scored the lone

Devils’ season ends in sectional Urbana tops Tipp in final

Marissa Mowery watched her shot from 28 yards away sailing high into the air, powerless to do anything else after letting it go. Wayne’s goalie was even more powerless.

Staff Reports NEW CARLISLE — Tippecanoe fought hard but came up short, losing to Urbana in three games by scores of 25-23, 25-19, 25-9 on Thursday in the Division II Sectional final.

HUBER HEIGHTS Mowery’s ball arced up into a gust of wind, and the Warriors’ keeper fell over backwards trying to get a hand on it — but it went over her outstretched arms and into the net, giving the Trojans a stunning 3-2 victory 3:20 into overtime on a wet, windy and miserable night at Wayne High School and propelling them to Monday’s Division I Sectional final. Once she saw the ball hit the twine at the back of the net, Mowery’s legs gave out and she fell to her back in joy — right before being mobbed by teammates. “I just fell to the ground, I

Rangers even series ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jason Motte and the St. Louis Cardinals’ bullpen failed to hold on this time, allowing the Texas Rangers to tie the World Series at a game apiece. With the Cardinals on the verge of winning the first two games, Motte allowed consecutive singles to open the ninth inning, and sacrifice flies by Josh Hamilton and Michael Young lifted the Texas Rangers to a 2-1 victory Thursday night. In a virtual repeat of the opener, pinch-hitter Allen Craig put the Cardinals ahead with a seventh-inning single off Alexi Ogando. After five pitchers combined for three innings of scoreless, one-hit relief to finish off a 3-2 Cardinals win in Game 1, Motte quickly got into trouble.

Ian Kinsler blooped a leadoff single to left in the ninth, just the fourth hit for the Rangers, and then stole second. Elvis Andrus singled to center, with Kinsler holding at third, and Andrus advanced when Jon Jay’s throw deflected off the glove of cutoff man Albert Pujols. Cardinals manager Tony La Russa brought in lefty Arthur Rhodes to face Hamilton, who is hitless in 16 consecutive World Series at-bats dating to Game 3 against San Francisco last year. But the reigning AL MVP drove home Kinsler with a fly to right. Lance Lynn relieved, and Young hit a fly to center that scored Andrus. Motte took the loss, and Mike Adams got the win with a scoreless eighth.


Texas Rangers’ Elvis Andrus, front, and Michael Young are congratulated in the dugout during the ninth inning of Game 2 of the World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday in St. Louis. Andrus scored from third on a sacrifice fly by Young.

Troy finished 8-8-1 on the season — but won a share of the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division title for the second straight year during the regular season. Tippecanoe 5, Trotwood 0 TIPP CITY — After a slow start, Tippecanoe got rolling in the second half, scoring four goals in the second half to claim a 5-0 win over Trotwood in the first round of Division II Sectional play on Thursday. Zach Berning scored Tippecanoe’s lone goal in the first half on an assist by Carlos Rojas. Josh Bechtol started the big second half, scoring on a free kick. Then Tippecanoe posted back-to-

Neither team scored in the first half. Kylie Brown scored the Vikings’ first goal with 17:08 left in the game. Miami East continued to put the pressure on, but did not get the insurance goal until less than seven minutes left in the game. Kendra Beckman sent a ball long to the corner, Lindsey Roeth chased it down and set a cross in, out away from the keeper, and Katrina Sutherly made a run at the far post and slid the ball into the net, giving Miami East a 2-0 lead. Kelly Rindler had six saves in the goal for the Vikings and earned her

11th shutout of the season. “Defensively, we were great,” Miami East coach Lil Carson said. “In this weather, it just takes one little slip-up and it could cost you. But we played smart, kept the ball in front of us and didn’t give them many looks. It’s especially hard for the keeper. “It’s cold and wet, you aren’t seeing much of the ball. But Kelly came up big a couple of times, did a good job keeping her focus back there. As a team, we were patient. We didn’t force anything that wasn’t there, played well as a team. It really was a team effort for the win.” Miami East (12-3-2) will play the winner of the Lehman-Triad game on Monday at 7 p.m. at Bethel High School. Troy Christian 3, WL-S 1 TROY — The undefeated Troy Christian Eagles stayed perfect on Thursday, defeating West Liberty-

play in the first half, and the score remained tied at half. The Eagles took advantage of an unforced error to score the gamewinner with 3:17 left in the game. Tippecanoe finishes the season 9-6-2.

NBA talks turn ugly, break off

Troy’s Ashley Rector shoots Thursday at Wayne. ■ CONTINUED FROM 10 was so happy,” a still-ecstatic Mowery said while taking her victory lap in front of the visitors’ stands. “I thought it was going over. I had no idea in a million years when I shot it that it would go in.” Mowery’s sense of timing couldn’t have been better. “What a time to get your first goal of the year,” first-year Troy coach Mike Rasey said. “It was sweet. And what makes it even sweeter is you’re looking at one of the better teams in the state in Wayne, according to the polls. We knew after our result the first time here (a 1-0 loss at Wayne), this was a team we could compete with and beat. “This game rights a lot of wrongs we’ve suffered this year. That first loss to Wayne was a heartbreaker. This is vindication.” And Troy gets another shot at vindication in the sectional final. The Trojans will face Sidney — which also defeated them 1-0, only at Troy and on Senior Night in the game directly following the Wayne loss — Monday at Centerville High School. Early on, it seemed like the vicious headwind was going to be the deciding factor in the game. Troy (10-7-1) had the wind to its back in the first half — and controlled most of the play.

NEW YORK (AP) — NBA labor talks turned nasty and broke off Thursday when three days of meetings failed to yield a deal to end a 112-day lockout, raising the likelihood that even more games will be canceled. After 30 hours of negotiations before a federal mediator, the sides remained divided over two main issues the division of revenues and the structure of the salary cap system. “Ultimately, we were unable to bridge the gap that separates the two parties,” NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver said. “We understand the ramifications of where we are. We’re saddened on behalf of the game.” Without a deal, NBA Commissioner David Stern, who missed Thursday’s session due to illness, almost certainly will decide more games must be dropped. The season was supposed to begin Nov. 1, but all games through Nov. 14 100 in total already have been scrapped, costing players about $170 million in salaries. Stern said previously that games through Christmas were in jeopardy without a deal this week. Silver said the labor committee would speak with Stern on Friday about the future schedule. The union said owners essentially gave it an ultimatum to accept a 50-50 split of revenues, and president Derek Fisher accused management of lying to the media. “We’ve spent the last few days making our best effort to try and find a resolution here. Not one that was necessarily a win-win. It wouldn’t be a win for us. It wouldn’t be a win for them. But one that we felt like would get our game back … and get our guys back on the court, get our vendors back to work, get the arenas open, get these

communities revitalized,” Fisher said. “And in our opinion, that’s not what the NBA and the league is interested in at this point. They’re interested in telling you one side of the stories that are not true and this is very serious to us. This is not in any way about ego. There are a lot of people’s livelihoods at stake separate from us.” Billy Hunter, executive director of the players’ association, said the union made “concession after concession after concession … and it’s just not enough.” “We’re not prepared to let them impose a system on us that eliminates guarantees, reduces contract lengths, diminishes all our increases,” he said. “We’re saying no way. We fought too long and made too many sacrifices to get where we are.” Previously each side had proposed receiving 53 percent of basketballrelated income after players were guaranteed 57 percent under the previous collective bargaining agreement. Silver said the league formally proposed a 50-50 revenue split Wednesday, and the union moved from 53 percent to 52.5 percent Thursday. “Hopefully, we can get back to the table, but certainly a tough day, a very tough day,” said Peter Holt, the labor relations committee chair and owner of the San Antonio Spurs. Asked whether the players would drop to 50 percent, Holt said he didn’t think it was that big of a jump but that the union did. He said the league would not go above 50 percent “as of today. But never say never on anything.” Hunter said Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert told players to trust that if they took the 50-50 split, the salary cap issues could be worked out.

OSU interim coach Fickell finally has a contract COLUMBUS (AP) — Four and a half months after taking the job, Luke Fickell finally has a contract. Ohio State is paying its interim head coach $775,000 for guiding the football program through a season of suspensions, NCAA investigations and looming penalties. The contract, released by the university on Thursday, makes it very clear that Fickell is not guaranteed a job after the agreement ends Jan. 31,

2012. “This agreement is renewable solely upon an offer from Ohio State and an acceptance by coach,” the contract stipulates in section 2.0 under Term. “This agreement in no way grants coach a claim to tenure in employment.” Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith, who did not immediately return a call requesting comment, has said that Fickell will be a candidate for the permanent job but that the school will do a nationwide search

to find its next head coach. Rumors of potential candidates have been circulating ever since 10-year coach Jim Tressel was forced to resign. Fickell is a former defensive assistant who was elevated to interim coach on May 30. That was the day that Tressel was pressured to resign in the wake of a cash-and-tattoos scandal that has dogged the program since last December. Fickell’s base salary is $400,000 and he is paid

$200,000 for media obligations and $175,000 from Ohio State’s agreement with Nike. (NYSE:NKE) Tressel made more than $3.5 million last year. The Buckeyes (4-3, 1-2 Big Ten) are off this week before returning to action at home on Oct. 29 against fourth-ranked and unbeaten Wisconsin. The contract includes language regarding bonuses and some supplemental compensation. Should the Buckeyes play in a bowl game, Fickell receives one

month of base salary ($33,333). If Ohio State wins its conference division and plays in the inaugural Big Ten championship game on Dec. 3, he would get half of his monthly base salary and would get another half of a month ($16,667) if the Buckeyes were to win it. He would receive two months of base salary ($66,667) if Ohio State plays in a Bowl Championship Series bowl game. Fickell also receives 12 tickets to each Ohio State

home football game and two tickets to each home men’s basketball game. Ohio State also picks up the tab for a family pool club membership and one leased car with insurance. He also can make additional money by working at Ohio State’s summer football camps. Under the terms of the contract, with wording similar to that in Tressel’s agreements with the university, Fickell can be fired for not reporting potential NCAA violations.

All on the line for Bulldogs, Spartans BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor


Two days in a row before the biggest game of the year, the Milton-Union Bulldogs have been forced indoors by the elements. But coach Bret Pearce isn’t concerned with the missed time on the field. “Earlier in the year, missing a practice would have been a bigger deal,” he said. “But this is Week 9. Both teams know what they’re about.” The Bulldogs and Waynesville Spartans are about to play the most important game of both their seasons.

Milton-Union travels to Waynesville tonight for a matchup riddled with drama — the winner will lay sole claim to the Southwestern Buckeye League Buckeye Division championship, as well as ensure themselves a home game in the first round of the Division IV, Region 16 playoffs. Last season, the Bulldogs lost in a shootout 63-34 in which Waynesville quarterback Luke Creditt threw for almost 300 yards and five touchdowns. And Pearce knows that the key to coming away with the SWBL Buckeye title is to contain him.

“He was the league’s offensive back of the year last year,” Pearce said of Creditt. “He’s a dual threat. He runs well and he throws well. Their entire offense starts with him. That’s the big task for our defense — how can we control Luke Creditt?” But the Spartans will have their own challenge on defense to worry about. The Bulldogs boast a backfield stuffed with three running backs capable of hitting a home run at any time. Jake Finfrock enters tonight’s game with 1,268 yards and 16 touchdowns on 201 carries, fullback Tyler Brown has 596 yards and eight scores on 80 carries and Clay Minton has 412

WEEK 8 TIPPECANOE (8-0, 3-0) at KENTON RIDGE (7-1, 2-1): The Red Devils took the first step towards proving themselves last week at Tecumseh. Their two toughest tests remain, though — and 7-1 Kenton Ridge is up next. The Cougars’ lone stumble was against undefeated Springfield Shawnee — which Tippecanoe hosts in the final week. Tonight the Devils will answer a question: Will they be playing for an outright CBC Kenton Trail title in Week 10 … or merely a share of it?

MILTON-UNION (7-1, 4-0) at WAYNESVILLE (8-0, 4-0): To say this is Milton-Union’s most important game of the season is putting it lightly. The Bulldogs and Waynesville Spartans will decide the pecking order in the Division IV, Region 16 playoffs tonight with unbeaten Waynesville in first and the Bulldogs in fourth. The Bulldogs, who are likely in with merely a win in Week 10, would wrap up a home game tonight. Oh, and this little matter of the outright SWBL Buckeye Division title, too.

ANSONIA (6-2, 5-2) at COVINGTON (8-0, 7-0): Even at 6-2, the only real chance Ansonia has tonight at Covington is if the Buccaneers lose focus after two blowouts against obviously-lesser teams National Trail and Twin Valley South — two games the Buccs won by a combined score of 117-7. The Buccs and Tigers have battled for the CCC title the past two years, but with two league losses already, Ansonia is just a potential spoiler tonight. And don’t expect the Buccs to let anything be spoiled this year. ARCANUM (4-4, 4-3) at BETHEL (4-4, 3-4): The Bethel Bees are coming off a heartbreaking 24-21 loss to Ansonia after getting back on the right track with two straight wins. Arcanum just got done playing poundthe-patsy with a 38-0 shutout of cellar-dwelling and winless Mississinawa Valley. The Trojans, however, also own a 15-12 win over Ansonia and plenty of blowout losses to the CCC’s top teams. This one will depend on which team shows up to play tonight. TROY CHRISTIAN (1-7) at SPENCERVILLE (6-2): Unfortunately for Troy Christian, this one is its second straight mismatch. Spencerville enters Friday at 6-2 and is currently a playoff team, sitting in seventh place in Division V, Region 18. The Eagles, however, are in 26th in Division VI, Region 24 with but one win — and have only scored 20 points in a game twice this year, a total Spencerville has only missed out on once. BRADFORD (3-5, 2-5 at MISSISSINAWA VALLEY (0-8, 0-7): Bradford’s final two games of the year are practically gimmes — particularly this week’s. Winless Mississinawa Valley is averaging a mere 7.5 points per game while giving up 41.1. The only game that was even competitive was a 15-14 loss to National Trail — the Blazers’ first win in three years. After pushing the Vikings in Week 7, the ’Roaders have to feel good about their chances of matching last season’s 5-5 mark. WAYNESFIELD-GOSHEN (5-3) at LEHMAN (3-5): At first glance, Waynesfield-Goshen would seem to have the edge over Lehman in this weekend’s Saturday game. But of the Tigers’ five wins, only one is over a team with a winning record — 6-2 Triad — and one of their losses was an embarrassing 62-8 drubbing at the hands of Ft. Loramie — which Lehman will finish the season with. This one could be up in the air. BUTLER (6-2, 2-1) at PIQUA (4-4, 1-2): There’s no playoffs in the cards for the Indians, nor a GWOC North title. But Piqua can still play the role of spoiler this year — and 6-2 Butler has plenty to play for still. Theoretically the Aviators could still get a share of the North title with a win at Trotwood in Week 10, but they also need to defeat Piqua first. The Indians may just be able to catch Butler looking ahead to the Rams.

Aside from the league title, the game holds playoff implications, as well. 8-0 Waynesville is currently No. 1 in D-IV, Region 16, while 7-1 Milton-Union is No. 4 with Madeira and Chaminade Julienne in between. Waynesville may get a home game regardless of what it does tonight, but MiltonUnion will ensure itself one with a win. “I tell the kids that they’ve earned this,” Pearce said. “They didn’t just fall into a league title game, or a game for playoff seeding. “A lot of kids don’t ever get to play in a game of this magnitude. We’re going to enjoy it.”


TWIN VALLEY SOUTH (2-6, 2-5) at MIAMI EAST (5-3, 5-2): The Vikings have hit a rough patch in their past three games — yet they still own a playoff spot, sitting in seventh in Division V, Region 20. Their only two losses are to 8-0 Covington and 6-2 Tri-County North, and their two remaining opponents hold a combined record of 3-13. The Vikings still need to win both games to wrap up the season — two games they won’t get many points from — and then might need a little help as a result.

The Games

yards and five touchdowns on 65 carries. The trio has accounted for 91 percent of the Bulldogs’ offensive touchdowns. “They’re not going to see the same team they saw last year,” Pearce said. “We’re more solid, more confident and more secure in our identity than we were last year.” Pearce also isn’t counting on an assist from the field conditions after a week’s worth of rain. “We certainly don’t mind playing in muddy field conditions. It suits our games,” he said. “But it doesn’t hurt Waynesville, either. They’ve got a big offensive line and can run the ball well.”

■ Troy Notebook

Foster shows he’s ready for next level BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor Facing a team loaded with future Division I college football players, Macrus Foster proved he fit right in. “Marcus had an excellent game on both sides of the ball,” Troy coach Steve Nolan said of the Troy senior’s performance against Trotwood-Madison. The Rams featured a dozen players who either already have Division I college scholarship offers or are being heavily looked at by Division I programs. Foster — the lone Trojan to have received a solid Division I scholarship offer so far — will play at the University of Cincinnati next season. Against the Rams, Foster went both ways nearly the entire game. On defense, he recorded eight tackles and a quarterback hurry. On offense, he carried the ball six times for 30 yards and had a 12-yard touchdown run. Foster also had five catches for 49




yards. “It was one of his best games,” Nolan said. • THAT’S THE SIZE OF IT: Once again, Zach Jones proved his fearlessness — and that size is merely a number. Despite being just 5-foot8 and 158 pounds, Troy’s fullback spent much of his night trying to block Trotwood’s Lawrence Mosley — a 6-foot-4, 328pound defensive tackle and another of the Rams’ Division I prospects — who literally is twice Jones’ size. Not only did Jones excel at blocking, he carried the ball seven times for 33

WILLIAMS yards — including an 11yard touchdown run — and had two receptions for 25 yards. “He’s a tough nut,” Nolan said of Jones. “But he kicked out and blocked their massive defensive tackle. He’s the kind of kid who gives his heart and soul to this program on every play.” Jones wasn’t the only undersized Trojan running back who was charged with blocking Trotwood’s college-level defensive linemen. Halfback Isaiah Williams — who, at 5-foot9, 160 pounds, is only slightly bigger than Jones



— also excelled at getting in the way of Trotwood’s giant space eaters. “Isaiah had a great game, too,” Nolan said. “The ‘Three Amigos’ — Marcus, Isaiah and Jonsey, all played well.” • IN THE TRENCHES: As a nosetackle, Alec Sears’ prime objective is to take up as many blockers as possible and allow his teammates to make plays behind him. Not only did the senior accomplish that goal against Trotwood-Madison, he also made plays of his own, finishing the night with seven tackles. Sears’

BUTCHER performance was all the more impressive considering that even at 6-foot-1, 285-pounds, he was easily outsized by the Rams’ offensive line, which averaged better than 300pounds per man. “Sears played his best game of the season,” Nolan said. “He took those ‘hogs’ they have up front on and more than held his own.” • ‘BACKERS BY POPULAR DEMAND: Just as they have all season, Trojan inside linebackers Chris Blair and Zach Butcher once again led the team in tackles against Trotwood.

Butcher finished the game with 10 tackles, one tackle for loss and a sack. Blair finished with nine tackles and a quarterback hurry. For the season, Butcher leads the team with 90 tackles, while Blair is right behind with 87 tackles. The two led the team in tackles last year, as well. “Those two guys played their hearts out,” Nolan said. “They were in there battling against Trotwood’s 270-pound fullback all night long. They both had good games.” • TUNNEL OF PRIDE: Before tonight’s final regular season home game, the Troy Football Alumni Association is inviting all former players to participate in a “Tunnel of Pride,” which the team will run through before taking the field for the game against Miamisburg. Any former Troy football player who wishes to participate in the “Tunnel of Pride” is invited to come to the Troy lockerroom at 6:45 p.m. before tonight’s game.

■ Troy-Miamisburg Preview

Born leader

Troy focused on Miamisburg

Finfrock brings strong pedigree to gridiron

BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor

BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor Jake Finfrock was born for greatness. The product of two families known for producing extremely talented athletes, the MiltonUnion senior bears a pedigree that few others can claim. But raw talent can only get a player so far. Becoming an actual leader takes the right combination of external factors while growing up to put it all together.

WEST MILTON And again, Finfrock’s upbringing helped out there. “My dad (Kevin) was always big in football. That’s why I got into it,” he said. “I grew up watching him coach at Covington. I just took everything I saw to heart. He’s one of my heroes.” And in his final season in the Milton-Union Bulldogs’ backfield, Finfrock has helped put the team in a position for greatness, too. The Bulldogs enter tonight’s game at Waynesville with a 7-1 record, their lone loss a one-point defeat at the hands of unbeaten Tippecanoe in Week 3. Milton-Union is also currently 4-0 in the Southwestern Buckeye League Buckeye Division — tied with the Spartans — making tonight’s game for the outright league championship. The Bulldogs also enter tonight sitting in fourth place in the Division IV, Region 16 playoff standings, while 8-0 Waynesville is currently No. 1. A win would lock up a home playoff game for the Bulldogs in the first round. “It would be huge,” Finfrock said. “We’ve worked as hard as we could all season to get there. We’re not going to let anything stop us.” Not much has been able to stop the workhorse Finfrock. Shouldering much of the offensive load, Finfrock has carried the ball 201 times for 1,268


Milton-Union’s Jake Finfrock slips out of a pair of tackles during a game at Miami East in Week 1 this season. Finfrock — a senior running back for the Bulldogs — has ran for more than 1,000 yards this season and scored 16 touchdowns, as well as topping the 2,000-yard mark for his career.

yards and 16 touchdowns. Against Preble Shawnee in Week 7, Finfrock cracked the 2,000-yard mark for his career, and with his one touchdown reception thrown in, he has accounted for slightly more than half of the Bulldogs’ offensive touchdowns this season while averaging more than 25 carries per game. Of course, the mark of a true leader is to deflect all of the credit while taking on all of the blame. “He’s been a warrior for us,” Milton-Union coach Bret Pearce said. “And he’ll be the first one to give all of the credit to everyone else blocking for him.” Sure enough … “It’s a lot to do with the line,” Finfrock said. “They’ve been blocking hard for us all year. They’re the real workhorses. They’re working their butts off out there to get us victories.” And the proof is in the numbers. Finfrock’s backfield mates Tyler Brown and Clay Minton have combined for 1,008 yards

and 13 more touchdowns — meaning that the Bulldogs’ line has cleared the way for 90 percent of the offense’s yards and scores. Even when opposing defenders get their hands on Finfrock, though, they have severe issues hauling him to the ground. Whether he slips out of tackles, dances around them or merely bulls his way through them, the thought of seeing Finfrock running their direction is a waking nightmare for any defender. “I just keep my legs pumping and try to be as juky as I can,” he said. “He’s got a great mix of ability and work ethic,” Pearce said. “He’s worked really hard to get himself into the shape he’s in.” Arguably Finfrock’s best trait as a leader, though, is the ability to add levity to practice with a well-timed joke. “He has a really good sense of when to inject humor and when to be serious,” Pearce said. “He can lighten up any practice at the right time. Of

course, in games, he’s pretty serious.” “I think it lightens the mood a little,” Finfrock said. “I try to do it at the right time so coach doesn’t get too mad.” Aside from the team’s goals, Finfrock has one personal goal in mind — best his Covington Hall of Fame father’s yardage total from his senior year. “Hopefully by the end of the season, I’ll have more yards than dad did his senior year,” Finfrock said. “I think he had about 1,560.” It wouldn’t be the first time a Finfrock child broke their parent’s mark — Jake’s sister, Kaci Finfrock, broke their mother Diana Finfrock’s career points total for Milton-Union girls basketball during the 200809 season. No matter what happens tonight, though, the Bulldogs have already accomplished great things this year — and will likely be playing in the postseason. And Jake Finfrock has played a leading role in all of it.

While others may be calculating the Troy football team’s playoff scenarios — namely, what has to happen for the Trojans to host a Division I regional quarterfinal matchup at Troy Memorial Stadium — Troy coach Steve Nolan is concerned with only one scenario this week. Beating Miamisburg. “If we don’t beat Miamisburg this week, we are out of the playoffs,” Nolan said. “It’s really as simple as that. We can’t afford to look past them to the playoffs. That’s the mindset we have to have these final two weeks. We have to beat Miamisburg this week, then we have to beat Sidney next week. If we don’t do that, it’s over for us. There won’t be any playoffs.” For the record, Troy still is sitting atop the Region 3, Division I computer points standings despite a 33-13 loss to Trotwood-Madison last week. Over the final two weeks of the season, however, the Trojans face Miamisburg (2-6) and Sidney (0-8), meaning the Trojans won’t pick up many computer points should they win those two games. The teams hoping to edge out the Trojans for a home playoff game — the top four teams in each region host their firstround playoff games — have a bushel of potential computer points out there, however. The No. 2 team in the regional, Westerville Central (7-1), plays Olentangy Liberty (4-4) and Dublin Jerome (3-5). Hilliard Davidson (7-0) plays Upper Arlington (7-1) and Hilliard Darby (6-2). Dublin Coffman (7-1) plays Worthington Kilbourne (35) and Upper Arlington. Upper Arlington plays Hilliard Davidson and Dublin Coffman. Pickerington Central plays Grove City (3-5) and Reynoldsburg (6-2). All of which makes for a muddied playoff picture — which is all the more reason for Nolan and the Trojans not to concern themselves with such matters. “We think if we win our last two games, we should get in,” Nolan said. “So we have to worry about beating Miamisburg this week and then let everything else sort itself out.” Despite Miamisburg’s 26 record, Nolan said it’s going to be a tougher task than it appears.

TROY “They are much better than their record,” he said. “They had some injuries at quarterback, but their starter is back now and he’s been playing pretty well. Defensively, they are good. They hold it, hold it, hold it — then they’ve given up some big plays that have hurt them and things kind of fell apart in some of their games. We have to assume we are going to get their best effort — it seems like we’ve gotten everybody else’s best effort so far this season. We have to go into this expecting it to be a fight.” The Vikings are led by dual-threat quarterback Cody Hamblin, who was injured for a three-game stretch midway through the season, but has played in each of the past two games. Against Lebanon he threw for 31 yards and rushed for 44 yards and a touchdown. Against Springboro, he threw for 30 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 26 yards. Miamisburg’s leading rusher is senior Zak Kruer, who has carried the ball 107 times for 486 yards and three touchdowns. He’s topped the 100-yard rushing mark three times this season against West Carrollton (177 yards), Fairborn (122) and Springboro (108). “He’s a tough runner,” Nolan said. “He’s quick and he’s tough to bring down.” What concerns Nolan the most, however, is Miamisburg’s defense. The Vikings are ranked second in the Greater Western Ohio Conference South Division in yards allowed (317.9 per game) and third in the GWOC South in points allowed (26.8). “Defensively, they are pretty good,” Nolan said. “Their front four is capable of controlling the line of scrimmage and their linebackers all move well.” With a shot at the playoffs on the line, Nolan is hoping his team comes in with the proper mindset. “We can’t start looking ahead to the playoffs now,” he said. “We’ve got to stay focused on Miamisburg.” • MORE ON MIAMISBURG: This will be the 54th time Troy has played Miamisburg. Troy holds a 32-20-1 edge in the series. The last time the two teams played was last year, when the Trojans won 5014. The two teams met one time in the playoffs — a 4914 Troy victory in 2000 in the Division I regional quarterfinals.

Buck Eyes An inside look at Ohio State football

Grading the Buckeyes High marks not abundant at mid season something out of just a bad throw the way Dane Sanzenbacher could last year. Grade: D

By JIM NAVEAU 419-993-2087 COLUMBUS — Ohio State’s football team has had quite a few tests already this season and some of them have come back with red marks all over them. This week brings an off week for the Buckeyes after a 17-7 win at Illinois last Saturday. Then they take on Wisconsin in a night game at Ohio Stadium. Before that, though, it’s time for some mid-term grades for the first half of a sometimes trying season that has followed a tumultuous offseason.

Here’s how OSU has graded out so far: QUARTERBACKS Braxton Miller has played well in his last two games, against Nebraska before he suffered a sprained ankle and at Illinois. He is a threat as a runner but his passing still has a long way to go. He might be all that is standing between Ohio State and complete disaster at quarterback, though. If there were an award for least accurate Ohio State quarterback ever, his backup Joe Bauserman would have retired the trophy with several throws that had people in the third row ducking to get out of the way. Grade: C-

OFFENSIVE LINE Consistency has not been the calling card of this group. Even in an overall good game at Illinois, they blocked well in the running game but allowed four sacks. Getting left tackle Mike Adams back from his five-game suspension the last two weeks has brought immediate improvement. However, OSU’s nine rushing touchdowns are tied for ninth in the Big Ten and the 19 sacks it has allowed are tied for 11th. Only Indiana has given up more sacks in the Big Ten. Grade: C-

SPECIAL TEAMS Drew Basil (8 for 10 on field goals) and punter Ben Buchanan (41.3) have been reliable. Basil has hit his last eight field goal attempts in a row after missing the first four attempts of his career dating back to last season. Kick returns and kick coverage have been good. By this time last season, Ohio State had given up three kick or punt returns for touchdowns with a season-shattering kickoff return by Wisconsin still in the future. Grade: B

DEFENSIVE LINE John Simon (3 sacks, 7.5 tackles for losses) and Johnathan Hankins (2 sacks, 6.5 tackles for losses) give opposing offensive lines a lot to think about. But with end Nathan Williams out for the season after two knee surgeries, there is a major gap in the pass rush department. To try to compensate for that, OSU has moved the versatile Simon around to different positions on the line. Grade: B

Head Coach Luke Fickell


Andrew Sweat (43 tackles, 5 tackles for losses) has filled some of the sizable hole left when Brian Rolle and Ross Homan Quite a few people predicted Dan Herron could lose his spot as Ohio State’s No. 1 running back before he returned departed, but first-year starters Etienne from an NCAA suspension. But the reality of Carlos Hyde, Sabino and Storm Klein and the rest of the linebackers appear to be learning on the Jordan Hall and Rod Smith hasn’t lived up to the hype. Herron returned with a big game at Illinois when he rushed job. Freshman Ryan Shazier looks like a for 114 yards and scored a touchdown. player who could get more playing time Hyde and Hall have been adequate as fill-ins, but the the second half of the season. Highly much-anticipated Smith has not been seen much since touted freshman Curtis Grant has not losing fumbles in the first two games. And Hyde’s playing been a factor at all. time was drastically reduced when Herron returned. Grade: C Grade: B-



RECEIVERS Open receivers have been a rarity for Ohio State this season. Blame inexperience, maybe a lack of speed in some cases, and having No. 1 receiver DeVier Posey suspended until the last two games of the season. Tight end Jake Stoneburner has been the most productive pass catcher with six touchdowns in his 12 catches. But there is nobody who is even close to being a “go-to” guy, the guy who can make something out of nothing, or

Depth has been the strength of Ohio State’s defensive backfield. Cornerback Bradley Roby has three interceptions and could be emerging as the playmaker here. The DBs might have been hampered a bit so far by the fact last year’s front seven put more pressure on opposing offenses than this year’s group has been able to do. Grade: B

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.

Talk to your husband’s doctor and reconsider your attitude Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married more than 40 years. We are retired, have no debts and are financially comfortable. We have a great family. Due to age and medical conditions, my husband is almost completely impotent. But he won't stop trying. I have done everything I can think of to discourage him. I dress modestly day and night. I rarely, if ever, let him see me undressed. I turn off any TV program that makes any reference to love or sex as soon as he comes into the room. I never participate in any pastime that he enjoys. I always make sure I am reading or applying hand lotion when I come to bed. I push him away anytime he approaches me. I never respond to his inquiries as to why he is so repulsive to me or what he could do to make his approaches less objectionable. I don't want it to be "better." I want him to stop. I suggested separate bedrooms, but he said, "Then move out." In spite of all this, every six or eight weeks, he wants to grope me for half the night. He expects me to respond — even participate. When I don't, he gets all upset, moody and sometimes terribly angry. I have normal, sexually oriented dreams, but I want him to leave me alone. What more can I do? — Sick of It Dear Sick: Do you object because your husband wears you out trying to have sex when he is not able? Or is it that you simply don't want sex anymore? If the former, we think you should talk to his doctor about available treatments and consider that once "every six or eight weeks" could be something you lovingly tolerate. If the latter, you won't get much sympathy here. We know many women past menopause aren't interested, but we believe intimacy is an important part of marriage, and when one partner makes unilateral decisions about sex, it leads to trouble. You are being unfair to your husband by dismissing his needs. And don't kid yourself. Even after 40 years, being constantly rebuffed and denied can damage your marriage. Please remember how much you love your husband, and reconsider your attitude. Dear Annie: My wife and I divorced after 25 years of marriage, and she moved to the East Coast. Her former best friend, "Karen," with whom she no longer has contact, is also divorced and still lives in this area. I would like to ask Karen out, and I'm pretty sure she would accept. However, I am concerned about propriety, as our families were quite close when we were all married. We even vacationed together, although there was never anything inappropriate between Karen and me. What should I do? — Sleepless in L.A. Dear L.A.: If either of you has been divorced less than a year, any romantic involvement with Karen will set tongues wagging about what was going on during your respective marriages. If that kind of gossip doesn't bother you, it certainly doesn't bother us. Dear Annie: You recently printed a letter from "Lonesome," a 65-year-old single woman who was having difficulty making friends. Among other suggestions, you mentioned Elderhostel. I just want to let you know that this organization now has a new name: Road Scholar. Aside from foreign travel, it also offers many interesting trips in the United States. — Hanover, N.H. Dear Hanover: Thank you for the correction. In 2009, Elderhostel changed its name to Road Scholar ( and continues to offer educational travel opportunities for those over 55.

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:


It’s time to give towels the hook Dear Heloise: I have a bathroom on the first floor of my house that guests use, but it’s also a working bathroom that we use for daily showers. To keep towels on the racks neat and ready for guests, I purchased two over-the-door bathrobe hangers to put our daily towels on to dry after showers. The towels are out of the way, and this keeps the guest towels from getting messy or being damp if a guest needs to use them. I think an over-the-door bathrobe hook also could be used in a bedroom to hang a purse on. It would keep the purse in the same place for busy moms, and keep dangerous items in the

Hints from Heloise Columnist purse out of the hands of exploring toddlers. — Regina Flynn, Strafford, N.H. Regina, a wonderful solution to the towel dilemma, and your suggestion as a purse hanger is good, too! Readers, where do you keep your purse at home? Do you keep it by the front door, in your home office for bill-paying, etc., by your

nightstand or in the kitchen? — Heloise TRAVEL HINT Dear Heloise: For everyone who uses battery-operated toothbrushes, I’d like to recommend removing the batteries before packing it for airline travel. I recently had one in my carry-on bag and plopped it the conveyor belt at airport security. Things in the bag bumped together, and the toothbrush turned on. I found myself hastily explaining to the Transportation Security Administration why my carry-on bag was buzzing and vibrating. I can only imagine what would have happened to my checked luggage if it had been stored in

there. — Toni M., via email SHARED SAVINGS Dear Heloise: I like to cut coupons from newspapers, etc. When I go grocery shopping, I put the coupons that I’m not going to use on the product so when the next person comes along, he or she can save a little bit of money. — J.B. in Virginia EARRING EASE Dear Heloise: I sometimes have difficulty with very long, curved or thick wires on earrings. If I dip the wire in petroleum jelly or my night moisturizer, it slides in much more easily. I really enjoy your column! Keep up the good work! — Mary, via email

HOROSCOPE Friday, Oct. 21, 2011 New and interesting times might be in the offing for you in the next year, where your social life is concerned. Several new relationships that start out on a casual basis will develop and grow into enviable lifelong friendships. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — You won’t have any trouble keeping up with the Joneses, because to your peers you are already a stellar attraction. Putting on pretenses to enhance your image won’t be necessary. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Although at times you are inclined to think that no one cares about you, a situation might develop that’ll prove how much everyone likes you. All you have to do is just relax and be yourself. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — When you relax, you’re a charmer, impressing everyone with whom you come in contact. It will be one of those times when obvious approval will smother any feelings of rejection. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — An opportunity to help better your financial position will be orchestrated by someone who has a stake in your affairs. You may not know about this person’s input, but you’ll dig the results. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Although you may never realize the impact of your words, you’ll have a faculty for saying all the right things that will uplift the spirits of another and change their world. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You don’t have to achieve an understanding with everyone at work, only with those who are in a position to make your life easier. It might be the boss, or even someone who works at your side. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — When exchanging ideas with someone whose mind you respect, be more of a listener than a talker. Chances are he or she will offer some interesting information you can use. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — If confronted with a challenge by someone who has opposed you previously, don’t back down. Proving what you have to offer is both productive and effective. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You’ve had to learn to forge order out of chaos, because you have a talent for making a mess in the first place. Trust your gift and apply it without hesitation whenever needed. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — There’s a good chance that something you wanted changed will be altered, but owing to someone else’s influence, not yours. If it serves your purpose, who cares? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Because you are a fast thinker who possesses sound judgment you should be able to come up with a solution to a problem that needs an instant, creative answer. Don’t hesitate to speak up. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — With your natural resourcefulness, you’ll have some ingenious concepts at your fingertips. Even though you may pull them out of thin air, the things you envision will be very doable. COPYRIGHT 2011 UNITED FEATURE SYNDICATE, INC.
