Commission OKs building renovations BY RON OSBURN Staff Writer

Hope starting to dwindle Murat Sonmez’s mother, wife and four daughters were crushed to death in their home by Turkey’s 7.2-magnitude earthquake, leaving him so distraught he found it difficult to speak. While media coverage has centered on tales of against-theodds rescues including a 2week-old baby girl who was pulled alive from the rubble, most stories of the trapped have ended the way that Sonmez knows, with death and unfathomable pain for those left behind. “I was not at home,” Sonmez said, lapsing into silence at times Wednesday. “God gave them, God took them away. I can’t find anything to say.


The Troy Planning Commission approved changes to the exterior of a downtown building that soon will be home to a new retail running shoe and apparel store. The commission by a unanimous 7-0 vote on Wednesday approved a new sign, facade alterations and an exterior painting scheme for the historic Mayo building at 12 S. Market St. The three-story building was recently purchased by local businessman Wade Westfall and will be the new location of Up and Running, which

will sell fitness shoes and apparel. The building was built in 1854 by Henry Mayo and includes a third floor auditorium and stage, now in disrepair, that at one time had seating for 500. The auditorium and stage was extensively used for local graduations, plays and literary programs through the Civil War era. Most recently, the building has been STAFF PHOTO/RON OSBURN used as a retail curios and antiques shop.

NATO delays Libya decision NATO unexpectedly postponed a definite decision to end its bombing campaign in Libya as consultations continued Wednesday with the U.N. and the country’s interim government over how and when to wind down the operation. Last week, the alliance announced preliminary plans to phase out its mission on Oct. 31. NATO’s governing body the North Atlantic Council, or NAC was expected to formalize that decision Wednesday. Air patrols have continued in the meantime because some alliance members were concerned that a quick end to NATO’s sevenmonth operation could lead to a resurgence in violence.

Local board looks for levy support BY RON OSBURN Staff Writer An estimated one-in-five residents in Miami, Darke and Shelby counties are affected each year by mental illness or addiction. Last year, nearly 11,000 tri-county residents were helped by services supported by the Tri-County Mental Health and Recovery levy, according to Mark McDaniel, Executive Director of the Tri-County Board of Mental Health and Recovery. The .6-mill levy — last passed in 2006 — is a 5-year renewal levy that expires Dec. 31, 2011. “It is a renewal levy. It is not a new tax and not an increase in millage,” McDaniel emphasized. The Tri-County Mental Health and Recovery levy supports publicly funded mental health and recovery services that includes individual, group and marital counseling, 24hour crisis services, suicide prevention, housing, educational programs and court and other advocacy services. Most services are provided on a local outpatient basis through a three-county network of provider


MCDANIEL services that include the Miami County Recovery Council, Safehaven in Piqua, Community Services for the Deaf, Shelby County Recovery Services and the Darke County Mental Health Clinic serving Darke and Miami counties. The levy, though, does also allow Tri-County to provide inpatient services when necessary, such as paying for private inpatient psychiatry treatment, McDaniel said. Because of the levy, services are provided on a sliding scale, so no one is denied services because of inability to pay. The levy is more crucial than ever due to Tri-County’s budget and its ability to provide services due to recent state cuts, McDaniel said. He

said Tri-County has been forced to cut staff and slash its budget by $3 million in the past three years due to those state cuts. “In light of those state budget cuts, we lean so much more heavily now on the funds the levy brings in,” he said. In 2010, the levy brought in $2.592 million, which is about 23.4 percent of Tri-County’s annual revenues. The levy will cost the owner of a $100,000 house about $15 per year. The local community has consistently provided support for the local levy, which benefits everyone, McDaniel said. “It makes for a much more healthy community overall when we are able to address these (mental health and addiction) issues locally and in a timely manner,” he said. For more information on the levy, see, or contact the Tri-County Board of Recovery and Mental Health Services at 335-7727. The Tri-County Board’s website is:

Among the issues and candidates on the ballot this year are three l o c a l levies that provide for t h e i r respective communities in a variety of ways. The levies for TippMonroe Community Services, Monroe Township Emergency Medical Services and West Milton Police and Fire Safety are all renewals of existing taxes. Each levy, if renewed, will last for five years commencing in 2012 and will be first due in 2013. Community Services T i p p - M o n r o e Community Services (TMCS) offers more than 200 programs. Whether or not residents know what TMCS does, they have most likely seen Community Services work. The Run for the Mums, the community wide garage sale, as well as the Halloween parade and costume judging contest are just a few examples of events TMCS organizes. Also, TMCS runs 10 social service programs funded entirely by donations. These include community relief, mobile meals and holiday giving programs.

Levies • CONTINUED FROM A1 organization’s myriad benefits and longstanding service to the community. “(TCMS) has been serving the community for 41 years and we’d like to do it for another 41,” she said. The levy, first passed in 1977, is for .5-mills, meaning five cents for every $100 of valuation. It will account for around 45 percent of the TMCS budget. Taylor reminds voters that this issue is up to them, recanting the TMCS motto, “We can’t do it without you!” Readers can visit or call (937) 667-8631 for more information. West Milton fire and police Another levy up for renewal is to help sustain West Milton’s fire

LOTTERY and police departments. This levy, a .5 income tax, generates approximately $250,000 a year. This helps offset the estimated annual cost of these services, which is around $800,000. The revenues are split between the police and fire operations and are apportioned on a yearly basis depending on need. Ever since the levy passed 10 years ago, the funds have allowed for replacement equipment within the fire division and helped meet the staffing requirements of the police division. Ben Herron, interim city manager and fire captain for West Milton, believes the renewal to be necessary to keep these services alive and up-todate. “If the technology exists, but we cannot afford it and it costs addi-

tional loss of property or, even worse, loss of life, that would be tragic,” he said. Herron also understands that money is tight all around, but he assures that, “during these tough times, if it was not essential to our budget, we would not ask for it.” For more information, call Herron at (937) 698-1500, Ext. 103. Monroe Township EMS The Monroe Township Emergency Medical Services levy provides resident living in the unincorporated areas of Monroe Township — about 6,118 people — with services. Monroe Township Trustee Philip G. Cox urges that the levy is crucial for residents of the affected area. He stressed that, if passed, the

Building • CONTINUED FROM A1 operates a store on Far Hills Boulevard in Kettering. Westfall said interior renovations are “95 percent complete” and the store plans to open Nov. 15. He told commissioners he hopes to begin some of the exterior renovations in about two weeks and complete the overall project by next spring. • The commission on Wednesday also recommended city council approve a zoning change for a circa-1902 brick building at 623 S. Clay St. Owner Bob Cole is asking to change the zoning from M-2 Light Industrial, to OR-1, Office-Residential. Steve Kalmar, the applicant and Cole’s consultant, said the OR-1 zoning would allow for the “greatest flexibility” in potential new uses for the building, formerly owned by the Hobart Corporation, while also acting as a “buffer” between

residential properties to the north and industrial buildings to the south. The building currently houses several businesses. The commission decided not to hold a public hearing. The positive recommendation now goes to city council, which will hold a committee meeting to review the request. If the committee also recommends council approve the rezoning, the issue will receive a public hearing at council prior to council legislative action. • A new bakery will replace Toni’s Cuppa Joe, a coffee shop at 111 E. Main St. that went out of business late this past summer. According to Troy Main Street Executive Director Karin Manovich, the new bakery, called the Cake Spot and Bakery, will be operated by Troy resident Amanda Macy.

‘Joe the Plumber’ launches bid TOLEDO (AP) — Joe the Plumber is plunging into politics because he thinks it’s about time America had a few mechanics, bricklayers and, yes, plumbers in Congress. Samuel “Joe” Wurzelbacher was thrust into the political spotlight after questioning Barack Obama about his economic policies during the 2008 presidential campaign. He officially launched his campaign for Congress in Ohio on Tuesday night. Wurzelbacher said he’s running as a Republican in Ohio’s 9th U.S. House district, a seat now held by Marcy Kaptur, the longest-serving Democratic woman in the House. She’s expected to face a pri-

mary challenge from Rep. Dennis Kucinich after Ohio’s redrawn congressional map combined their two districts into one that appears heavily tilted toward Democrats. Wurzelbacher has become an icon for many anti-establishment conservatives and has traveled the country speaking at tea party rallies and conservative gatherings since becoming a household name. “Americans deserve all kinds of people representing them,” he said. “Not just an elite, ruling class.” He said he’s seeking office because he’s seen too many people forced out of their homes and leave Ohio because of the poor economy.

levy will add “no additional cost to taxpayers.” The levy, passed in 2007, has a cost of 1.0 mill, or 10 cents for every $100 of valuation. It covers about 80 percent of the cost of EMS services for unincorporated Monroe Township, which are run through a contract with Tipp City. Cox believes the levy helps provide an important service. “It’s a valuable service for Monroe Township residents and we appreciate their support,” he said. “We are living in times of economic stress and voters, as a necessity, are even more wary of taxes than usual. Voters should keep in mind, however, that these levies will continue to provide for their communities without increasing current taxes.”

U.S. won’t help apply harsh immigration law WASHINGTON (AP) — The government has not offered to help Alabama put in place a strict immigration law that the Obama administration is challenging in court, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Wednesday. The administration has sued to block the law, considered the toughest state immigration controls in the country. “We have been working with the Department of Justice in its challenge to that law,” Napolitano told the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives. A federal appeals court in Atlanta, Georgia, temporarily blocked a part of the law this month that required public schools to check the immigration status of students. The court did not bar law enforcement officials from detaining people suspected of being in the country illegally. A final ruling in the case is not expected for several months. Alabama Republicans have argued that the law,

passed this year by the Republican-controlled Legislature and signed by Gov. Robert Bentley, was necessary to protect the jobs of legal residents. Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard, a Republican, said he is not surprised by Napolitano’s comments. “I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that the federal government won’t help us enforce our laws considering it hasn’t been enforcing its own law for years. That’s why we’re in this mess to begin with. In Alabama, we’re trying to turn off the magnet drawing illegal aliens across the border. The Obama Administration is trying to make the magnet stronger,” said Hubbard. The Obama administration, which is challenging a similar law in Arizona, has argued that enforcing immigration law is a federal responsibility. Opponents to the strict state law have argued that giving immigration enforcement power to local authorities would lead to racial profiling of immigrants, both legal and illegal.

CARTEENS programs getting simulators

motor vehicle crashes are the No. 1 cause of death for U.S. teens, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and drivers ages 16-19 are four times more likely than older drivers to crash. But thanks to a $25,000 grant from State Farm Insurance, teens around the state will have access to a new tool to learn about the dangers of distracted driving. In Ohio, 48 counties offer the 4-H CARTEENS program, a safe-driving intervention program coordinated by Ohio State University Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program. Of those, 38 counties participated in the State Farm grant that purchased the “BRDrivingSimExm” simulators to use in CARTEENS. MONDAY James L.

of software that connects a computer screen with the simulator’s steering wheel, accelerator and stick shift, offer 28 different distracted-driving scenarios in both urban and rural settings. The simulators that were purchased under the August 2011 grant arrived just last week, but last winter, the 4-H CARTEENS program in Wood County obtained a driving simulator thanks to a separate $1,000 grant from State Farm Insurance. Adding the simulator to the program has made an impact, said Jayne Roth, 4-H youth development educator for OSU Extension in Wood County. “When they sit down behind the wheel, they act like it’s a video game,” Roth said. “But there are so many different scenarios with the simulator, and when you add the Fatal Vision Goggles (used to simulate different blood alcohol levels), and add texting — they see pretty quickly that they just can’t drive that way.” Last week in Butler County, 4-H CARTEENS instructor Chelsea Smith, 19, visited the extension office and helped install the simulator software. “I think it will do a lot of good for our program,” Smith said. “It will show what things can be distracting when you’re driving. It will definitely be more interactive — hands-on activities help with the learning process.” In his research, Jordan found that teens who complete 4-H CARTEENS improve their driving significantly: Their risky driving behaviors decline by more than a third. Some parents of those mandated to attend are so impressed with their teen’s response to the program that they pay for younger siblings who may have just received their learner’s permit to participate, Jordan said. “I want to express our gratitude to State Farm Insurance for taking an active interest in the 4-H CARTEENS program,” Jordan said. “This simulator is phenomenal. It will be exciting to see the teens use it.”

ERCIS, Turkey (AP) — Murat Sonmez’s mother, wife and four daughters were crushed to death in their home by Turkey’s 7.2magnitude earthquake, leaving him so distraught he found it difficult to speak. While media coverage has centered on tales of against-the-odds rescues including a 2-week-old baby girl who was pulled alive from the rubble, most stories of the trapped have ended the way that Sonmez knows, with death and unfathomable pain for those left behind. “I was not at home,” Sonmez said, lapsing into silence at times Wednesday. “God gave them, God took them away. I can’t find anything to say. “I can’t describe my pain,” he said as he stood by a leveled four-story apartment building. He listed the dead: 32year-old wife Meral, four daughters 2-year-old Nisa Nur, 7-year-old Meryem, 12year-old Asli and 15-year-old Meral and his 65-year-old mother, Hatice. They lived on the second floor, above some businesses. The third and fourth floors were occupied by Sonmez’s brother and father, who managed to escape. He said he and relatives pulled out their dead and buried them, just a few of the victims of the quake that struck eastern Turkey on Sunday, killing at least 461 people. Elsewhere in Ercis, the town hit hardest by the quake, two teachers and a university student were rescued from ruined buildings on Wednesday, but searchers said hopes of finding anyone else alive were rapidly fading. NTV television said 25-

year-old teacher Seniye Erdem was pulled out around the same time that rescue workers also freed another teacher. The woman was thirsty and asked about her husband, who had died, it said. Excavators with heavy equipment began clearing debris from some collapsed buildings in Ercis after searchers removed bodies and determined there were no other survivors. More than 1,350 people were injured. Gozde Bahar, a 27-yearold English teacher, was pulled out of a ruined building on Wednesday with injuries as her tearful mother watched anxiously. The Anatolia news agency said her heart stopped at a field hospital but doctors managed to revive her. Earlier in the day, rescuers pulled out 18-year old university student Eyup Erdem, using tiny cameras mounted on sticks to locate him. They broke into applause as he emerged from the wreckage. Olcay Kotiloglu, a miner, was one of the first rescuers to respond to Erdem, whose ankle was stuck under a big column and who was shouting for help. “He first asked: ‘Brother, will you be able to take me out?” Kotiloglu said. “He said his leg was stuck and it was dark.” Erdem, however, showed signs of losing consciousness as well as patience as the hours passed. “At one point, he kept asking: ‘When will I get out, you always say half an hour. When?’” the miner said. “But he helped us a lot when we asked about his position.” As he was taken to an ambulance on a stretcher, Eyup exclaimed to his res-

Excavators with heavy equipment began clearing debris from some collapsed buildings in Ercis after searchers removed bodies and determined there were no other survivors. cuers: “Thank God for you!” Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said 63 teachers were among the dead and he alleged that shoddy construction contributed to the high casualty toll. He compared the alleged negligence of some officials and builders to murder because they ignored safety standards. “Despite all previous disasters, we see that the appeals were not heeded,” Erdogan said. Sonmez, the man who lost his family, said the building where they lived was 25 years old. “We had it built on our own, the technology was not as good as today in the past. But even if it had been built better, it probably could not have withstood the temblor,” said Sonmez, who is in his 40s. “It was so powerful.” Mattresses, pieces of clothing and plastic red and yellow flowers were mixed with twisted metal and chunks of bricks and con-

crete. A small heart-shaped red pillow, bearing the words “I love you” was seen at the edge of the rubble. A green potted plant stood on the debris. Erdogan acknowledged problems in sending aid for thousands of people who were left homeless, but said close to 20,000 tents have since been sent to the quake zone. Turkey has said it will accept prefabricated homes and containers from other countries to house survivors, many of whom have slept in the open in near-freezing temperatures for three nights. “There was a failure in the first 24 hours, but in such situations such shortcomings are normal,” Erdogan said. “There may not be sufficient equipment in depots at the start, but these have (now) been resolved with equipment from other depots.” The quake destroyed one school and Turkish engineers were making sure

other schools were safe or rendering them fit to resume lessons. About 800 students at that school in Ercis were probably saved because the quake hit on a Sunday. Hundreds of angry people in Ercis and nearby villages on Wednesday protested what they say was a lack of coordination of aid distribution outside the office of the local governor, complaining that they were not able to receive tents yet. A senior police official with a loudspeaker tried to calm the crowd as dozens of Turkish soldiers and policemen blocked entrances of the governor’s office. The head of the Turkish Red Crescent organization, Ahmet Lutfi Akar, said 17 trucks were looted before aid could be distributed. Health officials said they had detected an increase in diarrhea, especially among the children, and urged survivors to drink bottled water until authorities can deter-

mine whether the tap water may be contaminated. With thousands left homeless or too afraid to return to damaged houses, Turkey said it would accept international aid offers, even from Israel, with which it has had strained relations. Israel offered assistance despite a rift between the two countries over last year’s Israeli raid on a Gazabound flotilla that killed eight Turkish activists and a Turkish-American one. Turkey expelled top Israeli diplomats and cut military ties, saying relations won’t normalize until Israel apologizes for the raids and compensates victims’ families. Israel insists its soldiers acted in selfdefense during the raid. Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak ordered a team to supply aid for Turkey “within minutes” of hearing the request for emergency housing units, an Israeli Defense Ministry spokesman said.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP China Daily, Beijing, on China’s growth: The steady slowdown of the world’s second largest economy may disappoint those who are hoping it will be the driving force for the global economy, which is teetering on the edge of a double-dip recession. Latest statistics show that the Chinese economy expanded 9.1 percent year-on-year in the third quarter of the year, the slowest pace since the third quarter of 2009. However, remarkable income growth indicates that the Chinese economy is not losing steam. Instead, it is making needed progress in stimulating consumer-led growth. … Compared to the gloomy growth prospects of the European Union and the United States, that the Chinese economy is on track for such a “soft landing” should be reassuring. Better, double-digit income growth figures suggest that the world’s largest developing economy has managed to tilt the distribution of income a little bit during the process of macroeconomic control. … Domestically, continuous and fast income growth is essential to the country’s efforts to boost domestic consumption into a key growth engine for the coming decades. Globally, more and wealthier Chinese consumers will play a key role in transforming the world’s leading exporter into a vital source of demand, underpinning balanced global growth in the foreseeable future. The Telegraph, London, on the eurozone crisis: The crippling cost of the eurozone crisis becomes clearer by the day. An assessment from the Ernst and Young Item Club revealed that it has caused the UK’s recovery to “dim to a flicker”. The United States is seriously alarmed, as witnessed by the increasingly frequent interventions from Tim Geithner, the Treasury Secretary. His warning that “in financial crises, it is more risky to act gradually and incrementally than to act with bold force” is apposite. For the eurozone’s leaders have throughout acted with unforgivable indecisiveness. It was two years ago that the Greek debt crisis first manifested itself. It is almost 18 months since the streets of Athens saw the first protests against the government’s rather feeble austerity measures. It is almost three months since eurozone leaders agreed to their latest bail-out package for Greece and still it hasn’t been signed off. This unwillingness to act with “bold force” has exacted a high price. It has been the single biggest factor in halting a nascent global recovery in its tracks. If any good came out of the recent meeting of G20 finance ministers, it was that the eurozone’s leaders seem finally to have woken up to the need for decisive action. Of course, we have visited this last-chance saloon several times over the past 18 months, yet the debt crisis has continued to fester and the politicians have failed to deliver. At the Oct. 23 European summit in Brussels, the dithering has to end. The Gazette, Montreal, on Occupy Wall Street: The Occupy Wall Street movement is proving itself a phenomenon to be taken seriously, in light of the global reach it has achieved in the few weeks since it took off. As of recently, rallies had spread to nearly 1,000 cities in 80 countries on four continents, including half a dozen in this country. It is a movement rooted in both anger and idealism: anger at the growing inequality in the distribution of wealth in most industrialized countries, where the rich — notably the top one per cent of the population — are amassing an increasing share of their nations’ wealth. Protesters are denouncing a financial industry that drove the global economy into recession with its greed-driven dealings in toxic securities, and the lack of serious prosecution of the main offenders. But there is a host of other frustrations driving the demonstrations. These include high rates of unemployment among young people; a decline in job security, with the proliferation of outsourcing and part-time, temporary and contract employment; the cost of post-secondary education; the feeble response by governments to climate change and their half-hearted environmental-protection efforts; commodity speculation that artificially drives up costs to consumers; inflation in housing prices; and, here in particular, corruption in government contracting practices. The movement has been dismissed by some as too unfocused, with an incoherent smattering of unrealistic demands.


Please support Miami East To the Editor: Over the years, the Miami East staff and community members have continually assessed the ever-changing educational demands of the 21st century. They have developed, revised and implemented multiple curricular plans to enable its students to successfully meet these academic demands. As a result, our district has earned the Excellent with Distinction rating from the state for the past 4 years in a row (only 14 out of 623 schools have earned this achievement!) This accomplishment is a direct reflection of the pride the Miami East teachers, parents and community has of its district and students. Multiple funding cuts from the state of Ohio and the declining economy have placed severe financial strains on our district. The district staff has shown positive fiscal responsibility throughout these difficult times, but with continued funding cuts, they have been forced to freeze budgets and salaries, eliminate staff and cut programs and classes to make up for these monetary differences. Even with the current district cuts, there are still serious financial concerns. On Nov. 8, Miami East voters are being asked to approve a 1.75 percent earned income tax to replace the current 1 percent traditional income tax. The earned income tax will enable our district to regain its ability to fund programs to promote the overall growth of our students. Without the successful passage of this issue this November, the board of education will have no other choice but to make additional reductions. Going to state minimums across the district would reduce 10-15 additional staff members including the elimi-

nation of elementary art, elementary music, elementary physical education, electives in grades 7-12 and significantly larger class sizes in all grades K-12. These cuts will have a very negative impact on the overall development and education of our students. For accurate levy information, visit www.votevikingprideNOW.or g, or “like” the levy on Facebook for updates and answers to frequently asked questions. Fliers can also be obtained at the Miami East Elementary, junior high and high school buildings. We have been proud district residents for 36 years and both of our boys graduated from Miami East. One thing is for sure ... the Miami East community has a very positive history of supporting their schools and children. Please join us in voting “YES” for the 1.75 percent earned income tax issue on Nov. 8 to show our students there is still a great deal of PRIDE IN M.E.

I’ll be attending my reunion ... on Facebook I found it incredibly ironic that I learned planning was under way for my 20th high school reunion next year via Facebook. I mean, hasn’t Facebook more or less eliminated the need for high school reunions? The way I figure it, there are only three really compelling reasons to have a high school reunion. The first is to connect with people you may have lost touch with in the years since graduation. The second is for people to relive their high school glory days. The third is to find out who has really changed the most since graduation — you know, which person who seemed destined for fame and fortune in high school who has fallen on hard times and which person who seemed to be going nowhere in life who has become a phenomenal success. Near as I can tell, Facebook pretty much accomplishes all three of those goals. Since graduation, I’ve successfully managed to avoid my fifth, 10th and 15th year reunions — mostly because I already have the answers to

David Fong Troy Daily News Columnist the three questions any high school reunion could possibly answer. For starters, I’ve pretty much found — or never lost touch with — the people I most want to keep in touch with. Not hard to do when you only have two friends in high school, of course. I know if I ever want to talk to Randy (who, admittedly, stretches the word “friend” to the most extreme of boundaries) and Hughes, they are only a phone call away. I see Hughes several times a year as it is and I see Randy more often that I would care to admit in any sort of public forum. Furthermore, I have

absolutely no desire to relive my high school glory days — mostly because I don’t recall those days being particularly glorious. Unless, of course, you find some sort of glory in cruising Piqua in Hughes’ parents’ 1986 metallic-green Buick glorious in some fashion. Or hanging out in Meijer until 2 a.m. some sort of spectacle that you no longer get enough of. Or playing basketball at Kyle Elementary School while everyone else is at prom or homecoming to be the sort of thing you want to replay over and over again. No thank you. I must admit, however, the third reason to attend a high school reunion — to see who has exceeded everyone’s expectations or who has fallen the farthest the fastest — catches my morbid curiosity. That’s the biggest reason I’ve avoided all the other high school reunions they’ve trotted out every five years. The way I saw it, five, 10 and 15 years wasn’t nearly enough time for anyone to either fall spectacularly or build themselves into any sort of social mogul.

Twenty years, however, may be enough time for people to have led some pretty interesting lives. As we delve further into adulthood, I imagine people’s lives are getting pretty fascinating. Since I found out a few weeks ago we would, in fact, be having a 20-year reunion, I’ve been debating whether to attend. While I have very little desire to either share my life or try to recapture something that was never really there to begin with, there is a huge part of me that doesn’t want to steer clear of it — if only to satisfy my morbid curiosity. That debate likely will continue right up until the point when it’s time to decide whether to attend the reunion. At this point, I can honestly say — I just don’t know. There is good news, however — If I end up missing my 20th reunion, I’m sure there will be plenty of pictures on Facebook afterwards.

In addition, the White House says the remaining debt would be forgiven after 20 years, instead of 25. About 1.6 million borrowers could be affected. He will also allow borrowers who have a loan from the Federal Family Education Loan Program and a direct loan from the government to consolidate them into one. The consolidated loan would carry an interest rate of up to a half percentage point less than before. This could affect 5.8 million borrowers. Student loans are the No. 2 source of household debt. The president’s announcement came on the same day as a new report on tuition costs from the College Board. It showed that average in-state tuition and fees at four-year public colleges rose $631 this fall, or 8.3 percent, compared with a year ago. 2223084

DENVER (AP) — President Barack Obama recalled his struggles with student loan debt as he unveiled a plan Wednesday that could give millions of young people some relief on their payments. Speaking at the University of Colorado Denver, Obama said that he and his wife, Michelle, together owed more than $120,000 in law school debt that took nearly a decade to pay off. He said that sometimes he’d have to make monthly payments to multiple lenders, and the debt meant they were not only paying for their own degrees but saving for their daughters’ college funds simultaneously. “I’ve been in your shoes. We did not come from a wealthy family,” Obama said to cheers. Obama said it’s never been more important to get a college education, but it’s also never been more expensive. Obama said his plan will help not just individuals, but the nation, because graduates will have more money to spend on things like buying homes. “Our economy needs it right now and your future could use a boost right now,” Obama said. Obama’s plan will accelerate a measure passed by Congress that reduces the maximum required payment on student loans from 15 percent of discretionary

Tattoo parlor owner sentenced to prison Rife linked to Ohio State football player scandal COLUMBUS — (AP) A federal judge handed down a three-year sentence Wednesday to the tattoo parlor owner whose purchase of Ohio State University football memorabilia triggered a farreaching football scandal and an ongoing NCAA investigation. But U.S. District Court Judge Gregory Frost found that Edward Rife didn’t have the ability to pay a $10,000 fine following his conviction earlier this year on drug trafficking and money laundering charges. Rife, 31, had asked for leniency, saying previous convictions for assault and forgery occurred several years ago and didn’t suggest he was likely to commit future crimes. Rife, owner of Fine Line Ink Tattoos and Body Piercings on the west side of Columbus, tearfully apologized to his family and friends for his actions. He said he’s had to sell his house, move his daughters, ages 6 and 11, to different schools because of taunts they’ve received and is currently separated from his wife. “I know what I did was wrong and I regret it every day,” he said. “I never plan on doing anything wrong again.”

Rife’s conviction for dealing hundreds of pounds of marijuana was not all that different from other drug cases that often come before Frost. But the fact that Rife’s actions inadvertently caused upheavals at Ohio State created intense interest in the case. Frost made it clear he didn’t care about the Ohio State connection. “This is about drugs. This is not about trinkets,” Frost said. “I don’t care about trinkets, I don’t care about Ohio State, I don’t RIFE care about the players,” Frost said. “I care about the drugs.” Frost said he took into consideration the many letters of support he had received on Rife’s behalf and said Rife was different from many other drug defendants. He also told Rife that while he had sympathy for his family, he had little sympathy for Rife as the source of their ills. “This is a terrible offense,” Frost said. “There’s no getting around it.” Even prosecutors seemed sympathetic toward Rife, with

Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin Kelley telling Frost he didn’t know what punishment Rife could receive that would be worse “than what he’s already gone through.” Prosecutors alleged that in addition to Rife’s tattoo parlor, he had a lucrative side business selling hundreds of pounds of marijuana in Columbus, a second job that federal prosecutors say allowed him to pay $21,500 for a luxury SUV. In December, Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor and four other Ohio State players were found to have received cash and discounted tattoos from Rife in exchange for signed Buckeye memorabilia and championship rings. All were permitted by the NCAA to play in the Buckeyes’ 31-26 victory over Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl, with their fivegame suspensions to begin with the first game of the 2011 season. Another player, Jordan Whiting, was suspended for one game. After the team returned from New Orleans, investigators found

that coach Jim Tressel had learned in April 2010 about the players’ involvement with Rife. Rife had met with Christopher Cicero, a local attorney and former Ohio State walk-on player, that month to discuss his case but never hired Cicero. Cicero sent Tressel emails detailing the improper benefits, and the two ended up trading a dozen emails on the subject. Tressel had signed an NCAA compliance form in September saying he had no knowledge of any wrongdoing by athletes. His contract, in addition to NCAA rules, specified that he had to tell his superiors or compliance department about any potential NCAA rules violations. Tressel, who won a national championship and seven Big Ten titles at Ohio State, resigned May 30. Pryor also left Ohio State. Three people testified in favor of Rife on Wednesday, including a woman who said she’d taken him in as a boy when he was homeless and begging on the street. A friend, Sean Abbott, said Rife often took him into his house when he was homeless and always cared for him. After Abbott finished speaking, Frost, laughing, said he had

to ask Abbott where he got the Ohio State jersey he was wearing. “I bought this one from WalMart,” Abbott said. Rife’s lawyer, Stephen Palmer, said his client had been wrongly portrayed as the villain behind Ohio State’s woes and that people hadn’t seen his human side. “It’s been crushing,” Palmer said. “He’s not just an ugly mug shot as we’ve seen in the news.” In June, Rife pleaded guilty to one count of money laundering and one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute more than 200 pounds of marijuana. Rife has forfeited $50,000 in drug proceeds, but was allowed to keep the memorabilia found in his suburban Columbus home. Those include Big Ten championship rings, gold pants pendants, autographed items and parts of football uniforms. IRS criminal investigators have said they couldn’t determine whether Rife had used drug profits to buy the memorabilia. The IRS said investigators learned of Rife’s drug dealing while probing a major marijuana and cocaine operation in central Ohio. Kelley said there was no evidence Ohio State players were involved in the marijuana operation.


Activists urge governor to ban exotic animals COLUMBUS — (AP) Activists urging Ohio officials to prohibit ownership of exotic animals say they believe such a ban could have prevented the deaths of four dozen tigers, lions and other beasts that were freed at a farm near Zanesville. About a dozen supporters of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals stood outside the Statehouse on Wednesday with signs bearing slogans such as “Wild animals are not pets.” The gathering was spurred by the shooting by authorities of 48 animals released by a farm owner last week before he committed suicide. Six other animals were captured and taken to a zoo.


Ohio has some of the nation’s weakest restrictions on exotic pets. Gov. John Kasich has ordered temporary measures regarding private ownership of such animals while tougher laws are drafted.

NATO delays formal decision on Libya Concerns over resurgence of violence linger BRUSSELS (AP) — NATO unexpectedly postponed a definite decision to end its bombing campaign in Libya as consultations continued Wednesday with the U.N. and the country’s interim government over how and when to wind down the operation. Last week, the alliance announced preliminary plans to phase out its mission on Oct. 31. NATO’s governing body the North Atlantic Council, or NAC was expected to formalize that decision Wednesday. Air patrols have continued in the meantime because some alliance members were concerned that a quick end to NATO’s sevenmonth operation could lead to a resurgence in violence. On Wednesday, spokeswoman Carmen Romero said NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen was consulting with the United Nations and Libya’s National Transitional Council. “The NAC will meet with partners on Friday to discuss our Libya mission and take a formal decision,” she said, adding that


An effigy of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi with writing in Arabic reading “Libya Hura”, meaning “Libya Free” is displayed at a check point at the entrance of Misrata, Libya. there was an “ongoing process” in the U.N. Security Council. U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Tuesday that some of Libya’s leaders had called for NATO to continue its mission “during this interim as they try to establish some new governance.”

And at the United Nations, Libya’s deputy U.N. ambassador Ibrahim Dabbashi asked the Security Council on Wednesday to hold up on lifting the no-fly zone and ending its authorization to protect civilians. However, a NATO official who

could not be identified under standing rules, said the alliance had not received any formal request from the Libya’s transitional government to prolong its air and naval patrols past the end of the month. NATO’s 26,000 sorties, includ-

ing 9,600 strike missions, destroyed about 5,900 military targets since they started on March 31. These included Libya’s air defenses and more than 1,000 tanks, vehicles and guns, as well as Moammar Gadhafi’s command and control networks. The daily airstrikes enabled the rebels’ ragtag forces to advance and take Tripoli two months ago. On Sunday, Libya’s interim rulers declared the country liberated, launching the oilrich nation on what is meant to be a two-year transition to democracy. In Qatar, Libya’s interim leader Mustafa Abdul-Jalil attended an international planning conference Wednesday with representatives of Gulf states and Western powers that participated in the Libyan operation. The meeting is expected to focus on how the allies could help the new authorities bring stability to the nation. Qatar, a leading Arab backer of the uprising to topple Gadhafi’s regime, contributed warplanes to the NATO-led air campaign and helped arrange a critical oil sale to fund the former rebels. The United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Sweden also joined in the NATO war effort.

Europe’s largest banks to hike capital buffers by June BRUSSELS (AP) — European governments will force their largest banks to quickly and significantly increase their cushions of capital in order to ride out market turmoil brought on by the debt crisis, officials announced Wednesday.

By the end of June, the banks will need to have a 9 percent core tier 1 capital ratio which measures how much good capital a bank holds compared with its risky investments. The bank recapitalization is an important first

step in the grand plan Europe needs to pull the continent back from the brink and prevent another global recession. With an agreement in place on insulating the banks from turmoil, the leaders can now move on to

the sticky question of how big banks’ losses on Greek bonds should be so the country has a fighting chance of digging out from under its debt burden and how to ensure that the crisis doesn’t swallow any more countries.

caused by the crisis more generally prompted European leaders to ask banks to shore up their balance sheets. The rules mean that large European banks will satisfy international banking guidelines known as Basel III years ahead of the 2019 schedule. Polish Finance Minister Jacek Rostowski, who announced the decision after a summit in Brussels, said banking regulators would later announce how much banks will have to raise to meet the new rules since it’s still unclear how much their losses on Greek debt will be. European officials had earlier said the new rules would force banks to raise just over 100 billion ($140 billion). Rostowski said the more stringent ratio would be temporary banks would only have to prove once that they met the standard. That’s an indication that the leaders hope the rest of their package will make such safeguards unnecessary in the future.

The requirement announced Wednesday evening after a meeting of the leaders of the European Union’s 27 countries represents a significant increase over this summer’s stress tests, which passed banks that had a ratio of 5 percent. The new rules will even require banks to fully account for all sovereign debt they hold. The banks’ capital levels will be calculated only after banks mark down the government bonds they held as of Sept. 30 to a value closer to the market price. That presumably is to dissuade banks from suddenly dumping the bonds. In the July tests, they had been allowed to assume that at least some government debt would be paid in full. That will clearly not be the case, with leaders working on a plan to ask banks to lose as much as 60 percent of their investment in Greek bonds, much more than they had previously agreed to take.

UGA students aim to reduce food waste ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — A new University of Georgia student group has found a way to tackle two problems at once — wasted food and hungry Athenians. “That’s the great thing about this. On the one hand, it’s doing something about food waste and consumer waste, and on the other hand, it’s also doing something about hunger and poverty,” said UGA senior Camden Lowrance, a geography major from Tifton who volunteers with the UGA Campus Kitchen Task Force. Twice a month, some of the students — a mix of volunteers and students enrolled in “service learning” courses that require volunteer work in the community — gather on a Wednesday to prepare home-cooked meals with donated foods. Then Lowrance and other students show up the next evening to deliver the meals to some special

Athens-Clarke County households. This week, about 84 meals, two meals each for 42 people, were delivered. Working with the Athens Community Council on Aging, the group has targeted families in which grandparents are raising grandchildren. “It’s just two hours, and you can give so much,” said UGA student Ashton Johnson of Tyrone, who helped cook on Wednesday. The council works with about 30 families, a fraction of the number in Athens and surrounding counties where the parents are not in the home for a variety of reasons, said the council’s Paige Tidwell. Not all of them are poor, but many are — and few expected to take on the big job of raising children during a time when many expected to be retiring, Tidwell said. The first stop on Lowrance’s route

was the home of Emma Vinson, 77, who’s become mother for two of her great-grandsons, Daquavious and Jawon. A school bus driver for 18 years, Vinson raised six children of her own and was for 31 years a foster parent. Vinson and her great-grandsons aren’t going hungry, but the food the students bring is good — and for a couple of nights, Vinson doesn’t have to cook for the whole family. “It’s a blessing,” she said. Campus Kitchen hopes to build up to weekly deliveries to the families, said Sarah Jackson of UGA’s Office of Service Learning, which works with the group. The group had its beginnings about two years ago, thanks to social work graduate student Sarah Himmelheber, who knew that other universities already had similar programs affiliated with a national group, The Campus Kitchens Project.

You need to consider your own welfare

Today: 5 p.m.: Community Bulletin Board 7 p.m.: Midwest Crappie 9 p.m.: Mayor's Report

Dear Annie: My husband, "Harry," and I have been married for 32 years. Recently, he lost his job because of disability. I work two jobs to support the family. Six months ago, Harry suggested we sell our house and move to his old hometown two hours away. I refused because of my jobs and our children, who live near us. Harry says he spends too much time alone while I work. He also doesn't like that I have the grandchildren over, saying I care more for them (and my job) than I do for him. I know he feels bad because he cannot work, and I have tried to find him hobbies. He has been visiting his hometown twice a week. At first, I thought he had someone else on the side, but he says he just likes to be there. It's comfortable. Now he says he is going to move to his hometown without me. He told me he still wants to "date" and stay in our home once a week so he can see the grandchildren and work on our marriage. I am confused. It seems Harry isn't sure he's still in love with me. Now I will have to find a third job just to make the house payment. I am so hurt and angry. What should I do? — Nervous Nellie Dear Nellie: We think Harry is depressed and adrift. His hometown provides a soothing cocoon and a reminder of better times. Right now, you need to consider your own welfare. We recommend you talk to an attorney to make sure you are protected. You may need to sell the house and move into a smaller, more affordable place. Decide whether you wish to "date" Harry, relocate to his hometown or divorce him. Some short-term counseling could help with these decisions, and although it would be useful for Harry to go with you, if he refuses, please go without him. Dear Annie: I share a job with "Joan," my co-worker. We each know what tasks have to be done, and together, we are responsible for making sure everything gets done. Frequently, when Joan is off doing one thing, I will start on another. I am not the type to sit around doing nothing until she is free to start the next task. When she returns, she invariably says, "I can help with that," in a tone that conveys the message that I shouldn't have started without her. I never know how to respond. I've said, "Sure," but what I really want to say is, "You don't need an invitation." However, I don't think that would go over well. Today, a phone call needed to be made. Joan sent me a note asking about it, and I took care of it. She then confronted me, saying she would have done it herself but I "took over." She has been doing this job longer than I have, so why does she seem so insecure? What can I do when this happens again? — Diana in Detroit Dear Diana: Some people need constant reassurance that they are valued. You don't have to cater to Joan's insecurity, but it helps to get along with co-workers. Tell her you aren't trying to "take over" and that you simply want to get the job done and divide the work so neither of you is overextended. Inform her before making a phone call to ensure you aren't repeating something she has already done. Periodically ask her opinion. Reassure her that the office would collapse without her. It requires little effort for you to give her the impression that she is important. Ignore the rest. Dear Annie: I chuckled while reading the letter from "Stressed Out by Picky Eaters," whose family members drive her crazy with their food preferences. It brought back memories of an old friend who had a sign in her kitchen: "You have two choices for dinner: Take it or leave it!" — That Works in My House, Too Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Who actually supplies visitor victuals? Dear Readers: A recent letter from a reader about whether it is fair for a guest to ask a hostess to buy specialty foods really struck a chord with you! Here are just a few comments: • Frank from Middletown, N.Y., says: “Guests should offer to bring their own foodstuffs. It’s better to be safe than make someone sick.” • Gail, via email, says: “My husband has special dietary needs, and I am a vegetarian. I take enough nonperishable food to last until the morning after our arrival. Then we treat our hostess to a shopping trip where we purchase items we need, along with anything our hostess

Hints from Heloise Columnist needs. My mother and sister-inlaw enjoy these shopping trips and appreciate our paying for foods and food items that their households will not use after we leave. Finally, in the process, my mother has developed a taste for vegetarian food — so now we have something new to share!” • Betty from Houston says: “If

a guest is traveling by airplane or from a great distance, then the hostess should provide all that the guest requires. If the guest is traveling within driving distance, the guest should provide all but perishable items, which the hostess should gladly provide.” • Laurie from Houston says: “We have a great deal of company. I email the guests, tell them what the basic menu will be and then tell them to bring any other items that they might need for their special needs. “ • J. Heim, via email, says: “A guest who needs or wants specialty items should carry them with him or her. An exception

might be made for close family members who are houseguests, but they could readily supply their needs via mail or other package delivery.” • Janet Strand of Tequesta, Fla., says, “I have a small sign that has stood in my kitchen for too many years to count: ’If we don’t have it — you don’t need it!’” • Willa from Texas says: “It’s not right for a guest to request special or hard-to-find food items when visiting. This is the most outrageous thing I’ve ever heard! My sister adheres to a vegan diet, but when she visits me, she eats what I put on the table.” — Heloise











HOROSCOPE Thursday, Oct. 27, 2011 There is likely to be a noticeable improvement in your social life in the year ahead, stemming from palling around with a new group of people while still doing things with your old group. Keeping busy will be good for you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Don’t put yourself down or be sarcastic if your companions have far better ideas than what you can come up with. On the contrary, be supportive of anything and everything that is superior. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Let bygones be bygones. Don’t let a past grievance or a misunderstanding continue to disrupt how you would normally treat another. Begin again with a fresh scorecard. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You can’t rely on outside circumstances to improve your lot in life; you can only bank on yourself. If you’re enterprising and industrious, you can make good things happen. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Smart people perceive their duties as opportunities to get ahead, not dull obligations. What might appear to be burdens to some could be scads of lucky breaks in enterprising hands. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — There is a time to push and shove, and a time to hang fire and fall back. A smart person knows the difference. If you’re aggressive when you should be diplomatic, you’ll lose out. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — If you have a bright idea to change something for the better that shouldn’t be too difficult to implement, by all means give it a try. If it’s a problem, forget it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — It may be regrettable, but don’t hesitate to withdraw your support from an associate who you feel is handling a joint matter in a way that could discredit him or her, as well as you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Don’t expect things to run too smoothly if you’re handling a matter in a way that tends to favor only you. Include others in your thinking, and watch how everything changes CANCER (June 21-July 22) — To your credit, you rarely hesitate to help out wherever and whenever you can. Today, however, make sure you don’t volunteer to take on something that’s more than you can handle. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Instead of distributing and delegating work, you might inadvisably attempt to do everything yourself. When you discover you’re overextended, don’t hesitate to ask for help. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t panic; your problems are likely to be more gigantic in your mind than they actually are. Once you get on top of things, you’ll quickly realize your fears were unwarranted. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — This isn’t likely to be a good day for borrowing a treasured something from another, nor to lend anything you value. Small accidents could be more prevalent than usual.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Thursday, Oct. 27, the 300th day of 2011. There are 65 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 27, 1811, inventor Isaac Merritt Singer, founder of the sewing machine company that bears his name, was born in Pittstown, N.Y. On this date: • In 1787, the first of the Federalist Papers, a series of essays calling for ratification of the United States Constitution, was published. • In 1858, the 26th president

Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin were named winners of the Nobel Peace Prize for their progress toward achieving a Middle East accord. • Ten years ago: In Washington, the search for deadly anthrax widened to thousands of businesses and 30 mail distribution centers. • Today’s Birthdays: Actress Nanette Fabray is 91. Actor-comedian John Cleese is 72. Country singer Lee Greenwood is 69. Rock singer Scott Weiland is 44.

of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, was born in New York City. • In 1938, Du Pont announced a name for its new synthetic yarn: “nylon.” • In 1947, “You Bet Your Life,” starring Groucho Marx, premiered on ABC Radio. (It later became a television show on NBC.) • In 1971, the Democratic Republic of Congo was renamed the Republic of Zaire (but it went back to its previous name in 1997). • In 1978, Egyptian President

Iowa reopens highway cut off by flooding NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. (AP) — Business owners and area residents celebrated Monday’s reopening of the Iowa Highway 2 link into Nebraska City, which was closed for more than four months by Missouri River flooding. The flooding forced clo-

sure of Interstate 29 as well as nearby stretches of Highway 2. The closings added an hour or more to a daily hop over the bridge between the two states, so some people who commuted into or out of the southeast Nebraska community had to find special overnight accom-

modations. On Monday, an estimated line of vehicles a half-mile long stretched out before Highway 2 was reopened a little after 4 p.m. The reopening followed a ribbon-cutting ceremony at which some people carried signs that read “Welcome Back.” Iowa reopened I-29 lanes in the area earlier this month. Robert Hines was one of the long-distance commuters, driving about 150 miles a day to get from his home in Hamburg, Iowa, to his job at American Meter Co. in Nebraska City. “I was spending $600 a month in gas, and that’s not counting repairs and tires,” Hines told the Lincoln Journal Star. “It’s like Christmas, seeing all that,” said Brad Buckingham as cars and trucks whizzed by the Sapp Bros. truck stop he manages just west of I-29. The eastbound lanes of

John Moyna, who owns C.J. Moyna & Sons, of Elkader, Iowa, said his company worked hard to fix the highway over the past 10 days. He said the work was about two weeks ahead of schedule and that roadway shoulders still must be paved and guardrails installed. City Administrator Joe Johnson told the Lincoln Journal Star that the reopening was “huge for Nebraska City.” Johnson estimated that some area retailers lost 30 percent of their business during the four months the high-

way was under water and in need of repair. An Iowa Farm Bureau report released Oct. 3 said this summer’s flooding along the Missouri River caused more than $200 million in lost crop sales and other economic activity in six western Iowa counties. The Army Corps of Engineers said it had to release massive amounts of water from the dams along the Missouri River to deal with above-average Rocky Mountain snowpack and unexpectedly heavy spring rains.

Weather woes

October 27, 2011

Rain moves Game 6 to today ST. LOUIS (AP) — Game 6 of the World Series was postponed Wednesday because of a wet forecast, delaying the Texas Rangers’ bid to clinch their first championship. Major League Baseball announced the decision about 4 hours before the Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals were set to play. At the time, no rain had fallen at Busch Stadium, but heavy precipitation was expected. Texas leads the Series 3-2. Game 6 was rescheduled for

today at 8:05 p.m. EDT. If Game 7 is necessary, it would be played Friday night. “Because of the forecast, there was no reason to wait any longer,” said Joe Torre, MLB’s executive vice president of baseball operations. Torre said he told managers Ron Washington of Texas and AP PHOTO Tony La Russa of St. Louis on Tuesday that if the forecast did- Texas Rangers’ Derek Holland yells across a covered infield at n’t change, baseball would post- Busch Stadium Wednesday in St. Louis, after officials

announced that Game 6 of the World Series was postponed due ■ See SERIES on 18 to rain.

Troy high school graduate Erin Yenney competes during a Louisville womens soccer game earlier in the season.

The Bees scored with 10 minutes left in the first half to finally take the lead over Waynesville, then they hammered out four second-half goals to wrap up a 5-0 Division III Sectional championship Tuesday night at Northmont High School. “With 10 minutes left in the first half, we scored our first one. Then we scored real quick in the second half and just put constant pressure on them,” Bethel coach Bob Hamlin said. Kyle Hamlin scored three goals and had an assist, while Joe Zimmerman added two goals and two assists. Will Gresham and Carlos Panzardi each had one assist. Bethel now faces Springfield Catholic Central – the team that eliminated the Bees last year in the postseason in the regional semifinal – in the district title match at 4:30 p.m. Saturday at Bellbrook High School. “We’ve been working hard, and the kids have done very well this year,” Hamlin said. “I think we’ll be prepared.”

Division Player of the Year as a Trojan – has started all 18 games. “Going into it, I didn’t have any expectations playing time-wise. I was just excited to be going here,” Yenney said. “When it happened, it was a shock. I’ve been trying to work hard the whole time. I knew I could help the team out.” And help she already has. Facing the then-No. 12 team in the nation, Notre Dame, Yenney scored her first collegiate goal – and it proved to be the only tally in the game, snapping a conference winning streak by the Irish that has lasted since 2005. “It’s kind of funny. That game, I didn’t have a really good game. In fact, it’s probably the worst I’ve

CINCINNATI (AP) — Bernard Scott has waited two years to get this chance. The shifty running back will be a focus of the Cincinnati Bengals’ offense Sunday in Seattle, taking over for suspended starter Cedric Benson. It’ll be his first featured appearance since he started two games as a rookie in 2009. “I’m excited to go out there and get more opportunities,” the sixth-round pick said. There haven’t been many of those lately. Benson gets the overwhelming majority of plays in Cincinnati’s run offense, carrying 117 times in the first six games.

BY JOSH BROWN Sports Writer In the excitement following Louisville’s victory over Notre Dame on Sept. 16, the younger Cardinals may not have understood exactly what had just happened. Not even Troy High School graduate and Louisville freshman Erin Yenney – the person that scored the game-winner. But knocking off the defending NCAA champion Fighting Irish 10 and ending their 62-game regular season winning streak in Big East play was only the beginning for the Cardinals, who clinched their first-ever Big East National Division title with a 1-0 victory

over Cincinnati Saturday night, who are now preparing to enter Big East tournament play on Sunday – and who have a legitimate chance to reach the NCAA Tournament. “It’s really awesome. It really is. I get happy and can’t help but smile just thinking about it,” Yenney said on being a part of the historic year. “We’ve put so much into working every day, into getting better every day. “When we started practice in the summer, we made it clear that our goal was to win the Big East championship. It sounds like such a big thing to come into (as a freshman).” And as a freshman, Yenney – who was a four-time Greater Western Ohio Conference North

Hillis back at Browns practice Peyton Hillis is finally putting the focus on football and only football. After a drama-filled start to this season, Cleveland’s running back, whose contract situation, strep throat sickness that cost him to miss one game and a hamstring injury that sidelined him last week have blanketed the Browns for weeks, said after returning to practice on Wednesday that he’s not going to discuss his future with the team again this season. See Page 19.

Not rivals, yet Wisconsin, OSU have bad blood COLUMBUS (AP) — For teams that don’t classify themselves as rivals, Wisconsin and Ohio State sure don’t seem to like each other much. Harsh words are traded, grudges are held, classic games are played. And now they both have the season riding on the outcome of Saturday’s showdown at Ohio Stadium. “We always say you can’t play football without emotion,” Buckeyes linebacker Etienne

Sabino said. “So as far as this game, in particular, I don’t know, maybe the night game might hype it up a little bit more. But it’s always going to be emotional.” The 12th-ranked Badgers (61, 2-1 Big Ten), trying their best to put last week’s stunning, lastsecond loss to Michigan State in the rearview mirror, are hoping to get back into the national championship picture while also setting themselves up in the conference. The Buckeyes (4-3, 1-2)

can still salvage a year in which they’ve fought off NCAA probes, suspensions and setbacks. The stakes are high. So are the emotions. “For us, it comes down to going to Ohio State this week and taking care of business,” Wisconsin offensive lineman Travis Frederick said. There are lots of undercurrents to the game. To begin with, it’s Ohio State’s homecoming, the Buckeyes are wearing snazzy new uniforms

and the game is at night providing ample time for a crowd of more than 105,000 to, uh, get properly fueled for the drama. In addition, these are teams that after years of domination by Ohio State have settled into a comfortable competition, trading big wins and bragging rights. Over the last 10 meetings, each has won five times. Along the way, there has been a lot of pain and controversy.

West Virginia to Big 12 not a done deal By the Associated Press No decision was made by the Big 12 to add West Virginia, Louisville is still a candidate to replace Missouri in the conference and a decision about expansion is not expected before next week, a person with knowledge of the Big 12’s discussions told The Associated Press. The person spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the Big 12’s internal discussions are being conducted privately. West Virginia appeared to be the choice of the Big 12 presidents after a Monday board of directors’ meeting, but now Big East rival Louisville is back in the picture. The person said “no real decision was made on

Monday” and the Big 12 is not committed to any school. Missouri is likely leaving the Big 12 for the Southeastern Conference. The person said Big 12 officials are not holding out hope that Missouri will stay, but said West Virginia and Louisville should not be considered finalists to become the Big 12’s new 10th member. “Those two certainly have been discussed a lot,” the person said. “And I wouldn’t rule out other schools just yet.” BYU also has been considered as a potential new member of the Big 12. The person said no meetings have been set up with Big 12 officials and schools outside the conference. “We’re still discussing among ourselves,’ the per-

son said. Big 12 leaders have been considering possibly expanding back to 12 members, the number it had before Colorado and Nebraska left after last season and Texas A&M announced earlier this month that it was moving to the SEC. The Big 12 has already replaced the Aggies with TCU, a move that hurt the beleaguered Big East. TCU was set to leave the Mountain West Conference to join the Big East in 2012, but was instead diverted by the Big 12 to reunite with former Southwest Conference rivals Texas, Baylor and Texas Tech. But the person said it is unlikely the Big 12 would go that route and invite both West Virginia and Louisville in the process.

There were media reports that Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell reached out to Big 12 officials to lobby for Louisville and that helped put the brakes the move to invite West Virginia. “There’s been outside influences for every school,” the person said. “Everybody’s politicians are calling. I don’t mean that in a negative way. They’ve all been positive and no one has tried to coerce anybody into anything.” West Virginia Sen. Jay Rockefeller, who is chairman of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, which has oversight of sports, released a statement Wednesday saying that he, too, is involved. “The Big 12 picked

WVU on the strength of its program period. Now the media reports that political games may upend that. That’s just flat wrong. I am doing and will do whatever it takes to get us back to the merits,” he said. West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, in a statement emailed to the AP, said an investigation might be in order. “If these outrageous reports have any merit and especially if a United States Senator has done anything inappropriate or unethical to interfere with a decision that the Big 12 had already made then I believe that there should be an investigation in the U.S. Senate, and I will fight to get the truth. West Virginians and the American people deserve to know exactly what is going

on and whether politics is interfering with our college sports,” he said. Meanwhile, the Big East continues to try to rebuild a football conference that has already lost two of its longest tenured members, Pittsburgh and Syracuse (to the Atlantic Coast Conference), along with member-to-be, TCU. The league has been trying to add six schools Boise State, Air Force and Navy just for football and Houston, SMU and Central Florida in all sports to its existing six of West Virginia and Louisville (at least for now), Connecticut, Rutgers, South Florida and Cincinnati to become a 12team football league. Now it might be in the market to replace another member, though for which one remains unclear.

NBA sides meet in hopes of ending lockout

■ CONTINUED FROM 17 pone it early. Rain was in “every forecast we had probably for the last three days,” Torre said at a news conference. “They were all consistent there was going to be rain during the game.” Looking at Commissioner Bud Selig, Torre asked: “Do you want to play in rain?” Colby Lewis had been set to start for Texas, with Jaime Garcia ready to go for the Cardinals. If anything, the extra day may lead to more intrigue over who might pitch for St. Louis should the Series go to a Game 7 for the first time since 2002. Washington already has said Matt Harrison would start if the Series goes that far. The forecast for Thursday was much better clear enough with a gametime temperature in the low 50s. Rain has hovered over the majors all year with more than 50 washouts, baseball’s highest total since 1997. This was the first Series rainout since 2008 at Philadelphia. That year, Tampa Bay and the Phillies were tied in the sixth inning when rain and snow turned the field into a quagmire, forcing a suspension. It rained the next day, too, and the game finally resumed two days later, with the Phillies winning to take the crown. Because of the debate about how to handle that situation MLB adopted a rule a few months later mandating that any postseason game stopped in progress would be resumed at the point of suspension, rather than being postponed and starting over. Before that, the previous Series rainout came at Busch Stadium, when Game 4 between Detroit and the Cardinals was

NEW YORK (AP) — NBA owners and players resumed talks aimed at ending the lockout Wednesday, less than a week after three intense days of mediation didn’t produce a new labor deal. The sides got back to the table with a small group meeting and met for more than seven hours. Talks broke down last Thursday when players said owners insisted they agree to a 5050 split of revenues as a condition to further discuss the salary cap system. The first two weeks of the season already have

been canceled, and there’s little time left to save any basketball in November. Commissioner David Stern has said he feared even games through Christmas would be in jeopardy if there wasn’t a deal last week. Stern rejoined the talks Wednesday after missing last Thursday’s session with the flu. He was joined by Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver, owners Peter Holt of San Antonio, Glen Taylor of Minnesota and James Dolan of New York, and a pair of league office attorneys.

Texas Rangers Ian Kinsler, left, and Elvis Andrus react after beating the St. Louis Cardinals 4-2 in Game 5 of the World Series Monday in Arlington, Texas. pushed back by a day. A few hundred fans already were milling outside Busch Stadium when Rangers-Cardinals the game was called. The tarp was on the field at the time. Later, about a dozen St. Louis players came out to toss around balls in right field. Bad weather has lingered throughout the big leagues since opening day. Even before that, actually, as the Milwaukee Brewers and Reds worked out in snow flurries a day before their March 31 opener at Cincinnati. Wicked weather intruded earlier in this postseason, too. So did the threat of storms. A game in the AL championship series between Detroit and Texas

was postponed for a day because of a dicey forecast. The players left Rangers Ballpark and went home the rain, however, never came. The opener of the AL playoff series between Detroit and New York was halted after 1 innings by showers that lasted all night. The game at Yankee Stadium was suspended and picked up the next day at the point when it was stopped. The only other suspension in postseason history was that Rays-Phillies game in 2008. Baseball began the playoffs a week earlier this year than last season, intending to have the World Series conclude before November. MLB also hoped the adjustment

could help avoid a chilly finish for the championship. It was in the 40s and raw last week for Game 1. It was in the 70s and clear at Busch Stadium on Tuesday. A perfect night to play, but it was a travel day for Texas and St. Louis. Washington was aware of the shaky forecast. “If it’s possible we can play, of course we want to play. You don’t want to sit down. We’re here to play baseball,” he said Tuesday. “But if the forecast says that it’s going to be bad weather and we’re going to play and start and stop … We want to make sure the conditions are correct, and if we have to wait a day, then we have to wait a day.”

■ CONTINUED FROM 17 played all year,” Yenney said. “But our forward, Christine Exeter, crossed the ball and I was running in on the goal. I pushed past my defender and onetimed it in. It was an amazing moment.” If she had only known. “I had no idea. I knew Notre Dame was the defending NCAA champion, and I knew it was a big game,” Yenney said. “And we all knew that in recent years, we hadn’t beaten them. “It’s cool to have that accomplishment already. After the game, I was telling the other freshmen that I thought we probably didn’t realize what we just did. To the seniors, it’s probably the coolest thing ever. It’s really neat to help them accomplish that.” Exactly one month later, on Oct. 16, Yenney scored her second goal – another game-winner. She put up the first tally in a 3-0 victory over Seton Hall. That week,

she was named the Big East Rookie of the Week. Currently, Yenney has two goals and two assists on the year. Exeter – a sophomore and last year’s Big East Rookie of the Year – leads the team with 12 goals and three assists. Now the Cardinals (10-53, 8-1-2 Big East) have the No. 1 seed in the Big East Tournament and on Sunday will face the winner between Rutgers and Providence in the quarterfinal round. Each win improves Louisville’s chances of going to the NCAA Tournament – with an automatic bid going to the Big East Tournament’s winner. And even with all the young team has accomplished already, they’re showing no signs of letting up. “It’s very awesome. It’s nice to have accomplished what we have,” Yenney said. “But that doesn’t mean we’re not going to be hungry for more.”

then distanced himself from his former teammate. “(Terrelle) added fuel to the fire,” Stoneburner said. “He’s not here anymore so we can’t really deal with what he said. He’s off doing his own thing (with the Oakland Raiders). But I’m sure if he was here, that would be a different animal.” Then, after Wisconsin also ruined another unbeaten Ohio State team’s No. 1 ranking, beating the men’s basketball team last February when the Buckeyes were 24-0, football wide receiver DeVier Posey and a couple of teammates expressed themselves on Twitter. “I hate Wisconsin. With a passion,” tweeted Posey, who is still serving a second five-game NCAA suspension for accepting

improper benefits. “I can’t wait to play them next season.” Next season is here. Yet in their public comments this week, both sides expressed only admiration for the opposition. Told that the Badgers were favored by a touchdown, Wisconsin center Peter Konz was incredulous. “That’s weird because you know what Ohio State has. And it seems like people overlook it just because they’re young or they’ve had whatever problems,” he said. “We’re talking about, what, (six) straight Big Ten champions? How could you ever think that you could just walk in there as a favorite? I just have too much respect for them to even think that we have the upper hand.”

■ College Football

OSU-Wisc ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 A year ago, the Buckeyes were ranked No. 1 and unbeaten when they went to Madison, Wis., to take on the 18th-ranked Badgers. Again, the game was at night and the mob at Camp Randall didn’t have to wait long to have something to cheer about. Wisconsin ran off the first 21 points and then held on for a 31-18 victory. It would prove to be the only loss for an Ohio State team (12-1) that would end up vacating the entire season and a sixth straight Big Ten title because of NCAA violations. A week later, then Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor took some shots at AP PHOTO Wisconsin, saying, Ohio State coach Luke Fickell speaks with his team “Everybody knows that if during the second half in a game against Illinois in we play, nine out of 10 Champaign, Ill. on Oct. 15. times, we’d beat

Wisconsin.” That rankled the Badgers, in particular coach Bret Bielema. During the Big Ten’s preseason meetings this summer, he expressed disappointment that Pryor a key figure in the NCAA problems that brought down coach Jim Tressel had given up his senior season to jump to the NFL. “The only bad part about Terrelle leaving is he kind of claimed the week after that it was a fluke, that they’d beat us nine out of 10 times,” Bielema said. “We really wanted to play that game against him. Unfortunately, we won’t. But I think our kids know what they did last year.” Asked this week about what Pryor said, Buckeyes tight end Jake Stoneburner laughed and

■ Commentary

Not all that is said is heard in sports BY TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist It will go down as perhaps the most bungled phone call in sports history, a conversation that might cost Tony La Russa a World Series as well as his spot as one of baseball’s great strategists. He claims he said Motte. The bullpen somehow heard Lynn. And with that, a strange baseball saga did begin. “Maybe I slurred it, whatever it is,” La Russa said. It happens. Bad phone line one day, no idea how to

send a text the next. Really, there is only so much a manager can do. La Russa, though, isn’t alone. Who can forget the other great communication foul-ups, like this one in the Red Sox clubhouse late in September: “You said where’s the cream and the clear? I thought you meant get me some chicken and beer.” Or this from Miami football players caught up in a scandal with a Ponzi scheme booster: “No, coach didn’t tell us to win one for the Gipper. He said after the game we’re all going to get a stripper.”

Words are funny things. Put a few of them together and you know what you mean. Sometimes, though, the message doesn’t always get delivered as planned. Take Dodgers owner Frank McCourt for example. He’s been accused by baseball of looting almost $190 million from the team and hasn’t had a word to say to his former wife since he fired her as the team’s CEO. Yet when he finally did communicate with her it was with a divorce settlement she might not have completely understood. “No, Jamie, I never said

I would I would give you $130 million if we could sell a bunch of Manny’s dreadlocks. What I said was I’m dreading all those houses you live in will soon be in hock.” Sometimes, it seems, almost all communication is miscommunication. That’s certainly the case in the NBA labor talks, where both sides this week claimed the other side said things it didn’t. That led to this exchange from Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban to union chief Billy Hunter on the possible elimination of the salary cap.

■ National Football League

“Really, Billy, do you honestly think I would call for no salary cap? What I said was these negotiations have gone on so long that I think I need a nap.” Same thing happened between the NFL and its players union. After reaching agreement on a 10-year contract the league said it included blood testing for HGH for the first time and that there were plans to begin testing by the first game of the season. Almost midway through the season, though, there is no testing, and Congress is beginning to ask questions why. Could it be, as CBS analyst Boomer

Esiason suggested, that the union is resisting because many believe up to 20 percent of players are using HGH? Nonsense, says union chief DeMaurice Smith, who offers this explanation: “We never said we would allow a test for blood. The phone line must have been bad or something because we thought they were asking if it was still OK for our guys to play in the mud.” Bad connections, indeed. They could cost St. Louis a World Series, and they might have cost Jim Tressel his job.

■ National Football League

Bengals ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 games. Scott was so overlooked early in the season that coach Marvin Lewis insisted that offensive coordinator Jay Gruden get him a couple series each game. Even that wasn’t much. “It’s always difficult when you don’t know when you’re going to get in,” said Scott, who has carried only 30 times for 85 yards. “You know you’re probably going to get one or two plays or whatever. I feel like the more you’re in with the offense, the better feeling you get out of the game. Once I get my rhythm, I think I’ll be all right.” The question is how much the Bengals (4-2) will change their running game on Sunday in Seattle (2-4), where the crowd is loud and rookie quarterback Andy Dalton will rely on Scott instead of Benson to control the ball. “I don’t know if it’s going to change much,” Dalton said on Wednesday. “Obviously they’re two different style backs, but Bernard is capable of doing a lot of good things. We’ve got to get him in some space and let him run with it.” Benson is serving a onegame suspension for violating the NFL’s conduct policy. He spent five days in a Texas prison settling two misdemeanor assault cases before the season started. The Bengals expect him back next week for a game at Tennessee. That means Scott gets one chance to show his stuff for an entire game. “I’m going to get a better feel of the game, and I’ll be able to showcase my talent instead of trying to make every play a home run,” Scott said. “Every play is not going to be a home run.” The Bengals have gotten off to their surprisingly strong start by playing good defense they rank second in the league in yards allowed and running the ball consistently to take the load off their rookie quarterback.

Cincinnati Bengals running back Bernard Scott carries the ball against the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 16 in Cincinnati. Scott will start this Sunday in Seattle instead of Cedric Benson, who is serving a one-game suspension. shorter and 29 pounds lighter than Benson, but has more break-away speed. “We’re two different kinds of backs,” Scott said. “He’s a bruiser, I’m a slashand-dash type of back. But if I have to run inside, I don’t mind running inside neither.” The Seahawks have been tough to run against all season. Seattle has allowed only 3.2 yards per carry, best in the NFL. Cincinnati, Baltimore and Dallas have allowed 3.3. Only nine teams are allowing less than 4 yards per carry. With Scott in the back-

field, the Bengals have a better chance of running outside and throwing screen passes that could turn into long gains. “Bernard is a shifty guy who can get loose,” left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. “He’s hard to tackle just because of his shiftiness. He’s just a different style, where Ced’s more of a full-steam-ahead, powerrunner type guy. Just a little different. “It doesn’t really change anything we do just because a different guy’s carrying the football. So it’s different for the defense, not that much different for us.”

Notes: MLB Rey Maualuga is wearing a walking boot this week to support his sprained left ankle. He sat out a win over Indianapolis and will miss the game in Seattle. He hopes to be back next week for a game in Tennessee. … LB Thomas Howard didn’t practice Wednesday because of a hamstring injury. CB Nate Clements was limited by a sore hamstring. … CB Adam “Pacman” Jones fully participated for the second straight practice.

BEREA (AP) — Peyton Hillis is finally putting the focus on football and only football. After a drama-filled start to this season, Cleveland’s running back, whose contract situation, strep throat sickness that cost him to miss one game and a hamstring injury that sidelined him last week have blanketed the Browns for weeks, said after returning to practice on Wednesday that he’s not going to discuss his future with the team again this season. “I would rather not talk about a contract the rest of the year,” Hillis said. “There’s no sense in it. It’s in the past and I want to move forward from here on out. I’ve got to play and that’s the bottom line.” Hillis practiced for the first time since hurting his hamstring in the first half of Cleveland’s loss at Oakland on Oct. 16. The injury was the latest chapter in what has been a weekly soap opera surrounding the tough-nosed back, who rushed for nearly 1,200 yards last season and wound up on the cover of the Madden video game. Wearing an orange Browns baseball cap, Hillis stood near the center of Cleveland’s locker room as

he has all season and fielded questions. This time, however, there was no talk about his hopes to sign a long-term deal with the Browns. Last week, team president Mike Holmgren said the sides decided to put negotiations on hold and “let Peyton play, let the dust settle a little bit and see what happens.” That’s fine with Hillis. “We’ve got to move forward from this because you don’t need any distractions,” he said. “I’m not going to be a distraction. I’m going to help this team win as much as I possibly can and do what I can.” Hillis was limited during practice as the Browns (3-3) began installing their gameplan for Sunday’s matchup with the San Francisco 49ers (5-1). Hillis, whose hamstring was heavily wrapped, didn’t appear to have any problems running or cutting during the portion of the workout open to media members. In last week’s win over Seattle, Montario Hardesty replaced Hillis and rushed for 95 yards on 33 carries, the kind of workload Hillis would like to get. Browns coach Pat Shurmur made it clear that if Hillis is healthy and can play, he will start.

Summitt turns focus back to hoops KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Pat Summitt has handled the talk about her dementia diagnosis the same way she manages Tennessee basketball and her life: with control and determination. The Hall of Fame coach dictated how news of her condition was revealed in August and has made it clear since that she wants the focus to be on the Lady Volunteers basketball program and not her. “That’s the reason for when I came out with dementia and Alzheimer’s,” Summitt said. “I knew I had to do it, and I did it. I’ve got a good game plan. I feel good about it, and I think it motivated this team.” She’s stuck to that plan, speaking reluctantly at practices about her diagnosis while steering conversations to Tennessee’s

strengths, weaknesses and chances for a ninth national championship. On Thursday, she’ll face more questions about dementia and Alzheimer’s disease when she makes her first major public appearance for the annual Southeastern Conference media day in Birmingham, Ala. “I don’t want it to be all about me. I want to be able to help other people know you can live your life with dementia,” Summitt said. She’s got plenty of basketball to talk about, with the Lady Vols unanimously picked by the media this week to defend their SEC title and senior forward Shekinna Stricklen tabbed as the league’s preseason player of the year. Assistant coach Dean Lockwood doesn’t think Summitt or anyone on the

team will be distracted by talk of Summitt’s condition. “Once you’ve accepted something, it becomes part of your daily existence. That’s part of us now,” Lockwood said. “They’ll answer questions, but after a while it’s going to become ‘ho hum.’ (The players are) very focused on doing well. I think maybe this has given them an incentive to do it even more for a coach they love and respect.” Summitt made it clear to the Lady Vols that nothing would change after she told them in August she’d been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. She was still their coach, and the plan to win a national championship this season hadn’t changed. What has changed for Summitt is her daily routine. While drinking her

morning coffee she’ll play brain-bender games on her iPad or work on math skills to help keep her mind sharp. She adds coconut oil to her daily protein shakes. Son Tyler Summitt writes out her to-do lists to keep her organized, and Summitt occasionally will take a few extra breaks outside of her daily naps that she claims have been a key to her ongoing success. She still has her friends and staff over for dinner from time to time, and she has no problem joking with her assistants, like she did after a 6 a.m. Monday practice last week. “She walked in and said, ‘Who called this practice? I thought I was the head coach. I wouldn’t be calling a practice this early,’” said associate head coach Holly Warlick, the offending party.
