American economy expands at modest 2 percent pace WASHINGTON (AP) — The latest snapshot of economic growth shows the U.S. recovery remains tepid. Growth in the July-September quarter climbed slightly but was still too weak to stir significantly more hiring. The pace of expansion rose to a 2 percent annual rate from 1.3 percent in the April-June quarter, led by more consumer and government spending.

Voters who are still undecided about the presidential election aren’t likely to be swayed by Friday’s mixed report from the Commerce Department. “For the average American, I don’t think changes in quarterly GDP” make a big difference in their perception of the economy, said Andrew Kohut, president of the Pew Research Center. “It’s certainly good for the president that the number is

not bad because that would resonate.” With 11 days until the election, the economy is being kept afloat by a revitalized consumer and the early stages of a housing recovery. But more than three years after the Great Recession ended, the nation continues to struggle because businesses are reluctant to invest, and

Milton seeks voter approval Five-year, 10.9-mill renewal levy on ballot

ALMA probes for origins of universe


• See ECONOMY on 3

The community of West Milton will be at the polls next week to vote on a levy renewal for the MiltonUnion School District. The five-year, 10.9-mill levy has been renewed once since its first passage in 2002. Its first renewal had support from 56 percent of voters. Because it will raise approximately $1.7 million each year, which is the same amount as in 2002, treasurer Chuck Klein said residents can expect no increase in taxes or any additional payment toward the school. The money will go into the school’s general operating fund and will be used for operating expenses, salaries, benefits, maintenance and transportation. Both Klein and Superintendent Dr. Ginny Rammel reaffirmed the

FDA: Mold, bacteria at pharmacy tied to outbreak WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal health inspectors say staffers at a pharmacy linked to the deadly meningitis outbreak over the past year documented dozens of cases of mold and bacteria growing in rooms that were supposed to be sterile. In a preliminary report on conditions at the pharmacy, The Food and Drug Administration said

Friday that even when the contamination at New England Compounding Center exceeded the company’s own safety levels, there is no evidence that staffers investigated or corrected the problem. The report comes from an FDA inspection of the Framingham, Mass.-based company earlier this month after steroid injections made by the compa-

ny were tied to an outbreak of fungal meningitis. FDA officials confirmed last week that the black fungus found in the company’s vials was the same fungus that has sickened 338 people across the U.S., causing 25 deaths. The New England Compounding Center’s lawyer said Friday the pharmacy “will review this report and will continue

our cooperation with the FDA.” Compounding pharmacies like NECC traditionally fill special orders placed by doctors for individual patients, turning out a small number of customized formulas each week. They have traditionally been overseen by state pharmacy boards, though

MIAMI COUNTY hired if needed. “It depends on how we are on sales,” said the manager, who couldn’t be identified under corporate guidelines. “We didn’t hire any more last year because sales were down. So we’ll have a little more than last year, but nothing crazy.” Worldwide, Walmart plans to hire just 50,000 seasonal employees to bolster its 2.2 million employ-

ees, according to a USA Today story. Still, that’s more than last year — a change afforded due to a 6.7 percent sales growth this year compared to 2011. Applications can be filled out online at or at kiosks in the front or back of the store. The Meijer store at 1990 W. Main St. is rounding out its holiday hires and asks applicants to fill out information at the store kiosks

Main St., is accepting applications in stores or at kohlscareers. com/applyonline. About 5,700 more temporary temporary positions will be filled nationwide this year compared to last year, though some will be in distribution centers and for seasonal credit operating

positions rather than the traditional sales associate jobs. Elder-Beerman at Piqua’s Miami Valley Centre Mall already has begun hiring temporary employees.

That suggests spending may keep growing. Americans spent more on cars, adding nearly 0.2 percentage point to growth.

At a meeting in September, the board of education discussed with the city council and Union Township how some residents misinterpreted the levy being on the ballot as payment for the new school building. “The renewal has nothing to do with the new building,” Rammel said.

That was down from a 3.1 percent rate in the previous quarter. Income includes not only wages but also dividends, rental income and government or workplace benefits, among other items.

The FDA report provides new details about NECC’s conditions, which were first reported by state officials earlier this week. The drug at the center of the investigation is made without preservative, so it’s very important that it be made under highly sterile conditions. Compounding phar-

macies prepare their medications in clean rooms, which are supposed to be temperature-controlled and air-filtered to maintain sterility. But FDA inspectors noted that workers at the pharmacy turned off the clean room’s air conditioning every night. FDA regulators

said that could interfere with the conditions needed to prevent bacterial growth. Inspectors also say they found a host of potential contaminants in or around the pharmacy’s clean rooms, including green and yellow residues, water droplets and standing water from a leaking boiler.

and abroad is holding back the business sector,” Nigel Gault, an economist at IHS Global Insight, said in an email. “How quickly those uncertainties clear up … will determine how quickly the overall growth rate can pick up.” One big driver of growth was a sharp increase in defense spending, which rose by the most in more than three years. That was likely a one-time boost. Growth was held back by the first drop in exports in more than three years. It was also slowed by the effects of the drought that struck the Midwest last summer. The drought cut agriculture stockpiles and reduced the economy’s annual growth rate by nearly a half-point. In a healthy economy, growth between 2.5 percent and 3 percent is usually sufficient to keep the unemployment rate low. But the unemployment rate is 7.8 percent. Growth needs to top 3 percent to generate enough hiring to lower the rate steadily. The government’s report covers gross domestic product, which measures the nation’s total output of goods and services from restaurant meals and haircuts to airplanes, appliand highways. ances Friday’s was the first of three estimates of thirdquarter GDP. Analysts were doubtful that the report would sway many undecided voters in battleground states.

slower global growth has cut demand for American exports. Republican nominee Mitt Romney is telling voters that President Barack Obama’s policies have kept the economy from accelerating and have even slowed growth in the past two years. The 1.7 percent annual growth rate for the first nine months of 2012 remains slightly behind last year’s 1.8 percent growth. And both are below 2010’s growth of 2.4 percent. The economy contracted at a 5.3 percent annual rate in the first three months of 2009, just as Obama took office during the worst downturn since the Great Depression. Obama says his policies stabilized the economy later that year and argues that the stimulus package and auto bailout helped it grow in 2010. The White House points to an economy that’s expanded for 13 straight quarters. Yet this year’s third-quarter growth is slightly below the 2.2 percent average pace since the recession ended in June 2009. The economy’s health is most closely tied to consumers, whose spending drives 70 percent of economic activity. The latest report showed some progress.

Question: Are you voting for Richard Adams or Dave Fisher for state represntative?

Watch for final poll results in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News.

Watch for a new poll question in Sunday’s Miami Valley Sunday News.

Representative Adams has been a supporter of businesses including agriculture in the area. He also has been and continues to be a great supporter of the Miami County Fair. His past positions in county

government makes him well suited to continue to be our state representative. Please join us in voting on Nov. 6 for Richard Adams.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Dallas Morning News on U.S.-Iran talks: Presidential debates on international affairs almost always invoke a lot of tough talk, and Oct. 22’s (debate) was no exception, as Barack Obama and Mitt Romney used the topic of Iran to burnish their macho credentials. Negotiating directly with Tehran doesn’t sound tough, which may be why both candidates evaded it when the subject came up. But direct U.S.-Iran talks must at least be attempted before war becomes the only remaining option to halt Iran’s quest for bombgrade nuclear material. The New York Times reported that Iran and the United States had agreed to direct negotiations. That would mark a bold and potentially perilous move by the Obama administration, which says the report isn’t true. As the Bush administration’s chief Iran negotiator, former undersecretary of state R. Nicholas Burns told The Times negotiations make sense. “What are we going to do instead? Drive straight into a brick wall called war in 2013, and not try to talk to them?” The regional consequences of a war with Iran would be horrific … Oil shipping through the Strait of Hormuz would probably shut down, leading to shortages and global economic catastrophe. There is no guarantee that other nuclear powers, such as India, Pakistan, China and Russia, would support the United States. A broader international conflict of world-war proportions isn’t hard to envision. So, yes, the two absolutely should talk directly. But that must not be confused by Tehran as signaling a collapse of the international resolve that has led to unprecedented harsh economic sanctions. Decatur (Ala.) Daily on the presidential candidates: It’s startling how much the presidential candidates talk and how little they say. … President Barack Obama has few details on how he would improve the economy. … We suspect his silence is the result of what he and his handlers deem to be political necessity. The term “stimulus” never passes his lips, even though the stimulus he ushered through Congress early in his term marked a turning point in what looked like an imminent economic collapse. Obama touts his free trade agreements, even though most originated under his predecessor. He provides few details about the evolving Trans-Pacific Partnership, a free trade agreement that — depending on the specifics — could generate growth. … How will he lead in a term that is not marked by the threat of a depression, the scourge of Osama bin Laden or a health care crisis? Neither Obama nor his challenger will address what could be the greatest threat facing the nation, the self-imposed disaster of a fiscal cliff. Failure to negotiate the hurdle will quickly lead to another recession, according to the Congressional Budget Office. … As bad as Obama is on specifics, Romney may be worse. … He promises 12 million jobs, but he supports the promise with reports that either are irrelevant or indicate the job growth would result from policies that already are in place. He suggests he would expedite the Keystone pipeline, but studies show it would produce few jobs while jeopardizing the environment. Romney promises to reduce taxes — which could accelerate economic growth — but he declines to square that promise with his oft-repeated assertion that he will reduce the deficit. Whether because of a polarized political system or timid candidates, Americans will vote next month with few specifics on how their candidates will govern.

You know whom you’re voting for, but do you know why? I’m not sure if it has to do with the particular age that most of my friends and I have reached or if it’s just this individual election, but I haven’t had the urge (or commitment) to delete so many people off of Facebook in a really, really long time. Don’t get me wrong, I’m just as patriotic as anyone else. I’ve put in time watching debates (even if it was mostly time I’d like to have back), I’ve read the articles, sat through the slanderous commercials and read status after status about why a woman from my English Senior Seminar class is voting for Mr. X. When it comes to this 2012 election, it’s safe to say I’ve invested a fair amount of consideration when weighing the candidates. Here’s the problem I’m having with this election, though. And it’s highly probable that this occurred during the 2008 one as well, but that was my first year at the Troy Daily News and my first election night at a newspaper, so it’s safe to say my head was kind of buried ostrich-style while I tried to wrap my brain around all the articles and pages we had to piece together that night — at the last minute. Seriously folks, you have no idea what goes on during election night at a newspaper. It’s far cooler and far more stressful than you could ever, ever imagine. Truth be told, in the beginning it was kind of thrilling to see how

Amanda Stewart Troy Daily News Columnist many of my friends actually cared about this election. Despite the fact that I’m almost 28 years old and have been a contributing member to the adult world for a good five years now, I still kind of feel like I’m 16 when it comes to serious issues — namely politics and economics. If you need a 20-page dissertation on the influence sexual abuse played in Virginia Woolf’s works, however, I’m your girl. I enjoy debates, confrontation and the opportunity to voice my opinion (and why it’s my opinion) probably more than the next person. There have been several Saturday mornings spent with the other women in my family bartering to each other regarding why we should vote for so-and-so. I don’t mind debating with my family, because, for the most part, they play fair. I know what you’re thinking — is it even possible to play fair when it comes to politics?

— Ty and Candi Hissong Troy

Actually, yes, it is, if you can keep from getting dirty. I like passion, even if it’s in favor of the candidate I’m against. Having passion means that maybe my generation won’t be the one to completely unravel and disparage everything our Constitution stands for. Being so passionate about your candidate that you want to tell anyone and everyone why you’re voting for them and why you support them is exactly what an election should be about. It doesn’t matter if I can’t for one second imagine voting for the candidate that you’re about to — as long as you know why you’re voting for said person, then you’ve got my respect. It’s the other kind of “passion” I can’t stand. It’s the “friends” on my Facebook page that can’t seem to explain why they’re voting for the candidate they are, but can provide an exposé on the 7,000 reasons they’re not voting for the other person. I get that in some elections, it can feel like there aren’t any candidates you truly support — that your duty as an American might mean voting for the person you feel is the lesser of two evils. But even if that’s really the case, you should still be confident that the person you’re entering on that ballot is someone that you can get behind, even if it means it’s only a little bit more than the other guy. My husband is the only person

who knows what candidate I’ll be selecting when it comes time to fill out that ballot. Others might have suspicions, some may even be right, but ultimately, I’m confident that the person who will be receiving my vote is the candidate that best supports what I need personally from our nation and what I think is the best move for our country. I will be casting my vote for the person whose beliefs fall most in line with mine — not because he’s a Democrat or Republican — and despite the fact that I usually fall more liberal than anything. I realize that my candidate’s priorities might not be the same fit for you, which is why you won’t be voting for him. And not only is that fine, but that’s exactly how this election is meant to be. I’m not asking for you to change your mind or to vote for the person that I will. All I’m asking is that when it comes time to cast your ballot, make sure you know why you’re voting for the candidate you are and hopefully, it won’t be simply because that’s what your parents told you to do or they’re the same race as you, but because it’s someone that you’re truly passionate about.

COLUMBUS (AP) — The Ohio Supreme Court has ordered the state to explain a delay in compensating a group of landowners near the state’s largest inland lake for their losses from flooding. The court ruled earlier this year that the state Natural Resources Department was required to compensate 87 landowners near Grand Lake St. Marys in western Ohio. Lawyers for the landowners allege the state has been dragging its feet ever since, and the Supreme Court on Friday set a December hearing for the state to respond. The state said Friday that charges of a delay are without merit. At issue is a horseshoeshaped dam the state built in 1997 that landowners say has led to significant floods almost every year since.

Diebold won’t build in Ohio GREEN — ATM maker Diebold Inc. says it has changed its mind about building a $100 million global headquarters in northern Ohio. However, the $2.8 billion technology company said it is committed to keeping its existing Ohio operations in Green, near Akron. The company said Thursday it was suspending “indefinitely” its plans to build new corporate headquarters in Ohio in order to focus on growing its business. Diebold’s overseas operations have been battered in recent months. As part of its cost-cutting efforts, Diebold will eliminate about 500 jobs in North America and Brazil over the next 30 days, including fewer than 75 positions in northeast Ohio. The company has

Congressman draws Darwin as write-in opponent ATLANTA (AP) — Having denounced evolution as a lie “straight from the pit of hell,” Republican Rep. Paul Broun has won himself a new political opponent: Charles Darwin. The ultraconservative congressman, whose district includes the University of Georgia, told a Baptist church last month that evolution, embryology and the Big Bang theory were lies spread by scientists out to erode people’s faith in Jesus Christ. He also claimed the Earth is roughly 9,000 years old, a view of some literal interpretations of the Bible. Now scientists are questioning whether Broun, a medical doctor and Baptist from Athens, should serve on the House Science, Space and Technology Committee if he rejects widely accepted scientific ideas. And a talk radio host in nearby Atlanta

is trying to rally voters to cast write-in votes for Darwin, the English naturalist who first published his theory of evolution in 1859. Religious fundamentalists such as Broun damage the Republican brand, said Neal Boortz, the libertarianleaning radio host who has a strong following among Georgia conservatives. “It makes Republicans look like knee-dragging, still-tending, tobacco-spitting Neanderthals,” Boortz said. A Facebook page titled “Darwin for Congress” went up Oct. 8 urging supporters to take a stand against Broun. As of Tuesday it had just 45 “likes” less than half the membership of a similar Facebook group calling for Broun’s ouster from the House science committee. But the laws of political science hold that Broun will

likely win re-election to a fourth term. He has no Democratic opponent and Georgia law requires writein candidates to register by early September. That, and Darwin is long dead. “Dr. Broun welcomes Mr. Darwin as a challenger and is particularly looking forward to the debate portion of the campaign,” Meredith Griffanti, the congressman’s spokeswoman, said in an email Wednesday evening. “We’re sure it will be very lively.” The write-in campaign is tongue-in-cheek, said Jim Leebens-Mack, a plant biologist at the University of Georgia who started the Facebook page. But its supporters hope Darwin gets enough votes to pressure Republicans into removing Broun from a leadership post on the House Science Committee. Kevin Smith, a

spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, did not immediately return a message seeking comment. “I’d think the Republican Party would want to put a serious legislator in this seat rather than have Paul Broun,” Leebens-Mack said. Griffanti had previously said the congressman’s comments were intended as off-the-record statements about his personal beliefs. But Liberty Baptist Church in Hartwell ended up posting a video of the Sept. 27 speech on its website. Broun spoke in front of a wall of mounted deer heads during a sportsmen’s banquet. “God’s word is true,” Broun said in the video. “I’ve come to understand that. All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and Big Bang theory, all that is lies

straight from the pit of hell. And it’s lies to try to keep me and all the folks who are taught that from understanding that they need a savior.” Those remarks prompted Mark Farmer, the biological sciences chairman at UGA, and nine other top science faculty members to sign a letter defending the sciences and teachers. It’s not unheard of for politicians to publicly cast doubt on scientific ideas from evolution to global warming. But Farmer said Broun broadly branded scientists as liars with an agenda to destroy their students’ religious faith. “This idea that somehow we are doing this because we are motivated to dispel students of their belief systems is a total travesty,” Farmer, an said Episcopalian. “Those of us

who are scientists of faith took real umbrage at that.” Equally concerning, Farmer said, is that Broun sits on the House Science Committee, which has direct oversight over agencies including NASA, the National Weather Service and the National Science Foundation. There’s no evidence that Broun has targeted scientists or institutions who do not share his beliefs. Instead, Broun has used his influence to seek help from scientific organizations that support what the lawmaker dismissed as lies. In 2008, Broun asked the National Science Foundation to help Augusta State University so it could award scholarships to students studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics, according to a letter released under the Freedom of Information Act..

Chile’s ALMA probes for origins of universe LLANO DE CHAJNANTOR, Chile (AP) — Earth’s largest radio telescope is growing more powerful by the day on this remote plateau high above Chile’s Atacama desert, where visitors often feel like they’re planting the first human footprints on the red crust of Mars. The 16,400-foot (5,000meter) altitude, thin air and mercurial climate here can be unbearable. Visitors must breathe oxygen from a tank just to keep from fainting. Winds reach 62 mph (100 km) and temperatures drop to 10 below zero (minus 25 Celsius). But for astronomers, it’s paradise. The lack of humidity, low interference from other


In this Sept. 26 photo, painter Iver Osandor, from Chile, climbs a ladder as he works on an antenna at the European assembly site at one of the world’s largest astronomy projects, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in the Atacama desert in northern Chile. radio signals and closeness make this the perfect spot to the upper atmosphere for the Atacama Large

Millimeter/submillimeter Array, or ALMA, which is on track to be completed in March. So far, 43 of the 66 radio antennas have been set up and point skyward like 100ton white mushrooms. Linked as a single giant telescope, they pick up wavelengths of light longer than anything visible to the human eye, and combine the signals in a process called interferometry, which gives ALMA a diameter of 9.9 miles (16 kilometers). The result is unprecedented resolution and sensitivity fully assembled, its vision will be up to ten times sharper than NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope. “What surprises me is what is being observed.

Until now, we haven’t had such a capable observatory. We’ve never been able to observe with such resolution, such accuracy,� says David Rabanus, ALMA’s instrument group manager. More than 900 teams of astronomers competed last year to be among the first to use the array, and scientists from around the world are already taking turns at the joysticks. They’re looking for clues about the dawn of the cosmos from the coldest gases and dust where galaxies are formed and stars are born, to the energy produced by the Big Bang. Socalled birthing clouds of cold gases and debris can look like ink stains with other telescopes, but ALMA

can show their detailed structures. ALMA also reaches farther beyond Earth’s nitrogen-blue skies than any other radio telescope and has already captured images different from anything seen before by visiblelight and infrared telescopes. After a 2003 groundbreaking, scientific operations began last year with a quarter of ALMA’s final capacity. Seeing in three dimensions made possible the recent discovery of a spiral structure surrounding R Sculptoris, providing new insights about how dying red giant stars implode and send off raw material that will later form into other stars.

East Coast braces for ‘Frankenstorm’ WASHINGTON (AP) — When Hurricane Sandy becomes a hybrid weather monster some call “Frankenstorm� it will smack the East Coast harder and wider than last year’s damaging Irene, forecasters said Friday. The brunt of the weather mayhem will be concentrated where the hurricane comes ashore early Tuesday, but there will be hundreds of miles of steady, strong and damaging winds and rain for the entire Eastern region for several days, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The hurricane has killed at least 20 people in the Caribbean, and just left the Bahamas. It is expected to move north, just off the Eastern Seaboard. As of Friday morning, federal forecasters were looking closer at the Delaware shore as the spot it will turn inland and merge with a wintry storm front. But there is a lot of room for error in the forecast and the storm could turn into shore closer to New York and New Jersey and bring the worst weather there. Wherever Sandy comes ashore will get 10 inches of

rain and extreme storm surges, Louis Uccellini, NOAA’s environmental prediction director, said in a Friday news conference. Other areas not directly on Sandy’s entry path will still get 4 to 8 inches of rain, maybe more, he said. Up to 2 feet of snow should fall on West Virginia, with lighter snow in parts of Ohio and Pennsylvania. A wide swath of the East will get persistent gale-force winds in the 50 mph area, with some areas closer to storm landfall getting closer to 70 mph, said James Franklin of the National Hurricane Center.

Try puting less of an obligation on family relationships

Today: 6 p.m.: Mountain Heart Bluegrass 7 p.m.: Bookends 9 p.m.: Spotlight

Dear Annie: My cousin and her husband have four young kids. My family is invited to every birthday and Christmas party. Of course, they expect a gift each time. They even register for toys and clothes. Their kids are already spoiled with bedrooms overcrowded with stuff. They also post pictures on Facebook of trips to local museums and restaurants, so money doesn't appear to be a problem. The problem is, my cousin's family is otherwise so busy that these parties are the only days my kids can be in their lives. If we don't go, we never see them. They rarely call or visit. They'll come over if we invite them to a barbecue or something, but they don't reciprocate. I don't want to end the relationship, but it feels one-sided. My cousin's father was like a father to me. After he died, I wanted to stay involved in her children's lives. I have tried to keep this relationship going, but every year it gets harder. Any advice? — Tennessee Dear Tennessee: It's sweet that you want to stay close to your cousin and her family, but please don't expect them to respond as if you are best friends. Socializing with relatives can be a bit more limited without creating ill will. Continue to attend the kids' birthday parties, but don't feel obligated to spend a fortune on a gift. Instead, offer to take the birthday child for a special outing so you can get to know each of them individually. Invite them over for family functions if you wish. Put less of an obligation on this relationship, and you may find it is easier to handle. Dear Annie: I am the youngest of five and am a lonely, 39-year-old single woman. I admit that I have made some poor choices. We live in a small town, and everyone knows about my mistakes. But instead of standing up for me, my family members, including my own mother, delight in slandering my name. My brothers' wives can be particularly cruel. To me, when someone attacks a family member, the proper response is to say that you won't speak gossip or evil, and demonstrate loyalty by refusing to discuss such things. Most people would respect that. I have never hurt anyone or done anything unforgivable. I am raising three kids alone while studying to be a nurse, and I'm also a talented photographer. I never get credit for any success in my life. None of these things matters to my family. I have been tormented and disrespected for years. I am horrified at the dawning realization of how much of a lie my family life has been. So I am planning to move to another state and cut all ties. I am in therapy and learning that I don't deserve this terrible treatment. Please tell your readers not to judge their family members or hold their past against them. — Moving On Now Dear Moving On: Family members have been known to treat one another terribly because they expect to be repeatedly forgiven and tolerated. We are glad you are receiving therapy, and we hope it will help you get a fresh start. Dear Annie: I would like to pass on an idea I came up with to distribute belongings to family members. I had a large doll collection in pristine condition. I invited my two daughters and two granddaughters to an "auction." They were each given a paddle and Monopoly money. I also gave them a "debit card" that was worth $50 per hour. If they ran out of "money," they could use their debit card and work off the amount they purchased by helping around my house. By the end of the auction, each child had the dolls they wanted. Now when I go to their houses, I see my dolls on display, but they aren't taking up space in my house. —Happy Auctioneer Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

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


What can I do to get healthy nails? Dear Heloise: My nails tend to peel and crack, but I don’t want to get artificial nails, which might make my nail beds more brittle than they already are. I’d like healthy nails. What can I do? — Cait E. in Philadelphia This is a classic Heloise Hint that has left many with beautiful, strong nails. Treat them with white (otherwise known as colorless or decolorized) iodine. Before running out to a big chain drugstore, call around, especially to local or independent pharmacies, and ask the pharmacist if the store has iodine available. It may be kept behind the counter in some states, or your pharmacist may be able to order it

Hints from Heloise Columnist for you if you ask. If all else fails, check online using a search engine and typing in the words “white iodine.” To treat damaged nails, use a cotton swab or a nail-polish brush (cleaned thoroughly with nail-polish remover) to spread colorless iodine on JUST the tips of your nails.

After doing this daily for one week, begin to use the iodine only once a week. Continue until you see that your nails are getting stronger. While using white iodine, do not use hydrogen peroxide or any products that contain hydrogen peroxide, or you will end up with yellow or orange fingertips. Remember, when cleaning up around the house, use rubber gloves to protect your hands and nails. — Heloise HANDY TONGS Dear Heloise: To keep tongs from getting tangled in my utensil drawer, I cut a paper-towel tube the right length and slide the tongs inside.

Love your column in the Houston Chronicle! — Jonna C. in Houston Jonna, great hint! Tongs are handy for turning meatballs when cooking. Don’t have a meatball recipe? Try my Heloise’s Spicy Swedish Meatballs — they are delicious. To receive a copy of this and other Heloise favorites, like Shrimp Dijon and Southwestern Veggie Rice, simply send $3 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (65 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Main Dishes, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Make an extra batch of meatballs and freeze them in a lined egg carton. — Heloise












HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, Oct. 28, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Today you really have the travel bug! Many of you will be making plans to escape somewhere, either now or in the future. Others will sign up for courses to learn something new. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your sex drive is very strong today! However, your desire to defend your best interests in matters about insurance, taxes and shared wealth is equally strong. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be careful not to arouse opposition against you today, because you could be overwhelmed by it. Go gently. People (including you) feel very competitive today. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You’re willing to work very hard to get a lot done today, especially if you can use the efforts of others. You’re ready to rally your troops and delegate duties to everyone! LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a playful, competitive day! Enjoy pranks, flirtations and fun times with others. Sports events and social occasions will be excessive and over the top. (Do not drink and drive.) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be patient and diplomatic with family members today, because you could overreact to something someone says. (Perhaps it’s because you’re so determined to introduce improvements to where you live.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Make sure you don’t promise more than you can deliver when talking to others today. It’s very tempting to do this because you believe in yourself! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Guard against spending too much money today or thinking that you have more than you actually have. This is a classic day to go overboard. Aagghh. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You’re pumped with energy today because you feel so enthusiastic about something. You always get like this when foreign shores beckon or adventure is at hand. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might be hatching some secret plans today because you’re playing your cards very close to your chest. Keep an eye on what others are doing as well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Group activities will be fun and exciting; however, don’t let competition make you lose your good judgment. Think about your long-term objectives. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Don’t bite off more than you can chew today to impress bosses, parents and authority figures. (Because you will be tempted to do this.) Remain realistic. (Do yourself this favor.) YOU BORN TODAY You always do your homework, which is why those who work with you think you’re so professional. You’re also intrigued with how things work behind the scenes. You have excellent money savvy and demand high standards of those around you. Essentially, you’re a friendly but serious person. Set aside some time in the coming year to learn something valuable. (You’ll be glad you did.) Birthdate of: Julia Roberts, actress; Annie Potts, actress; Bill Gates, Microsoft billionaire. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Saturday, Oct. 27, the 301st day of 2012. There are 65 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 27, 1787, the first of the Federalist Papers, a series of essays calling for ratification of the United States Constitution, was published under the pseudonym “Publius” (the essays were a collaborative effort by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay).

On this date: In 1904, the first rapid transit subway, the IRT, was inaugurated 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 1962, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, a U-2 reconnaissance aircraft was shot down

while flying over Cuba, killing the pilot, U.S. Air Force Maj. Rudolf Anderson Jr. In 1978, Egyptian 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: The Anaheim Angels won the World Series, beating the San Francisco Giants 4-1 in Game 7.

Science And Racing The Michigan International Speedway and Adrian College have developed plans for a science center and sciencerelated field trips at the NASCAR racetrack. Officials announced Tuesday that students will learn about the area’s ecosystem as part of the “Track and Explore” program. The partnership has provided Adrian College biology students with opportunities to research and study animal and plant life on 900 acres of the 1,400-acre Brooklyn track. There’s also a chance to learn about the science behind the track. The college students have found and photographed biological samples and developed displays for the MIS offices. Now, in preparation for the next phase of the project, the students have developed a field guide and self-guided tour book for visitors at the track about 60 miles southwest of Detroit.

Earnhardt Jr. Cleared Dale Earnhardt Jr. was cleared Tuesday for this weekend’s race at Martinsville Speedway after missing the last two weeks to recover from a pair of concussions. NASCAR’s most popular driver was examined by neurosurgeon Dr. Jerry Petty one a day after he ran 123 laps at half-mile Gresham Motorsports Park in Jefferson, Ga. Petty monitored Earnhardt during Monday’s test at Gresham. “Dale Jr. has done everything asked of him,” said Petty, who consults with NASCAR and is Earnhardt’s personal physician. “He hasn’t had a headache since Oct. 12, and we have not been able to provoke any symptoms since that time. I have informed NASCAR and Hendrick Motorsports that he is medically cleared for all NASCAR-related activity.” Petty sidelined Earnhardt after the driver went to see him complaining of a lingering headache following a 25-car accident on the last lap of the Oct. 7 race at Talladega. Petty diagnosed Earnhardt with a concussion, and said Earnhardt also suffered one in an Aug. 29 crash during a tire test at Kansas that went untreated.

Knaus to the rescue Crew chief salvages Kansas to keep Johnson in hunt CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Chad Knaus was as specific as he could be as he barked out orders from the pit box at Kansas Speedway. Jimmie Johnson had just led 44 laps around Kansas Speedway, pitted under a green flag and was trying to work his way through traffic when his championship chances were nearly derailed. He spun by himself, hit the wall, and ruined a potentially race-winning car. Knaus refused to throw away the day. He called Johnson to pit road to take a look at the No. 48 Chevrolet and methodically called out the play-by-play required for the crew to get the car back on the track and keep the team in the hunt for the Sprint Cup championship. “I knew he would make it sound better than it really was,” said Johnson, “quarterbacking the situation.” Knaus ordered every Hendrick Motorsports crew member over the wall, and all of them were to take Bondo filler with them. He addressed certain areas of the car first, “hit it with a hammer!” he barked, “right there, between the o and the w!” he pointed toward the Lowe’s logo. On and on it went, through at least a half-dozen stops on pit road over two caution periods. The crew worked in quick bursts so Johnson could rejoin the field as it passed by under caution, preventing him from falling a lap down. When it was time to go racing again, Knaus assured Johnson that the car which had thick black tape covering much of the back and the

window was good to go. “There’s nothing wrong with that thing. Nothing,” Knaus radioed. “You just might have a little trouble looking out the back window.” And there wasn’t anything wrong with it the rest of the race. Johnson drove the battered car to a ninthplace finish, one spot behind series leader Brad Keselowski to keep the Chase for the Cup championship standings unchanged. He went into Sunday’s race trailing Keselowski by seven points and left with that margin intact. “He wasn’t lying. It wasn’t pretty. It wasn’t efficient,” Johnson said. “Slow on corner exiting down the straightaway because of the fenders being pushed out like they were. Through the corner, the car had a spoiler on it in a decent location and it was creating downforce. It drove well. That’s what allowed me to work traffic like I did to allow me to get up inside the top 10.” If Johnson goes on to win his sixth NASCAR championship, he’ll be able to look back to Kansas and his crew’s performance as one of the shining moments of the season. Squeezing out that top-10 finish not only kept him within striking distance of Keselowski, it allowed Johnson to widen the gap on Denny Hamlin, who finished 13th. Hamlin now trails Keselowski by 20 points, and is 13 behind Johnson. That’s important as they head into the final month of the Chase, which shifts Sunday to Martinsville Speedway, where Johnson and Hamlin have combined to win nine of the last 12 races. The two were

unbeatable for a nine-race stretch, but haven’t been to Victory Lane since Hamlin’s win in the 2010 Chase. Hamlin, disappointed with the Kansas results, took to Twitter to hint at Martinsville’s importance. “Time for MAX points,” Hamlin tweeted Sunday night. He nailed his last bold proclamation, backing up a “we will win next week” tweet after Chicago with a victory at New Hampshire in Round 2 of the Chase. Johnson, a master at being able to block out the competition, said Hamlin’s public declarations don’t bother him. “It’s a great track for him. Everybody has ways that they express themselves, motivate themselves or their team, fan base,” Johnson said. “Some people feel it’s important to do, and how they want to handle it. Johnson pointed out that he often uses the “#sixpack” on his own tweets in reference to his quest for a sixth championship, “to make my fans feel and know that’s where my head is. So I don’t see anything wrong or bad with it.” Martinsville is also a great track for Johnson, who has six wins and 18 top-10s in 21 career starts. Although he hasn’t won since spring of 2009, he led 111 laps in April and was en route to the victory until he was wrecked on the final restart. A year ago, he was passed by Tony Stewart on the final restart. “It’s pressure time, it’s go time, it’s all that stuff with four to go,” he said.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Frustrated with Landon Cassill at Kansas Speedway, Danica Patrick decided to send him a message. She spun Cassill and wrecked her own car, ending her race early. She was scolded by crew chief Greg Zipadelli, who complained over the team radio: “You know better than to do that.” Zipadelli isn’t angry at Patrick, and he said he ultimately views Sunday’s incident as a learning experience in a year that is supposed to prepare her for next season’s jump to a fulltime season in the Sprint Cup Series. But StewartHaas Racing had added Kansas to her schedule because the repaved track was opened early for testing and Patrick could gain invaluable seat time over the course of the weekend. A bad decision midway through the race left her with nothing to show for her efforts. “She should know better than to put herself in that position and to wreck a race car and to not finish a race,” Zipadelli said . “You do not learn anything sitting in the garage. I know where she was coming from, she was frustrated. That doesn’t make it right. But do I think she learned from that? And do sometimes those things need to be learned? Yeah. “But I was disappointed because I thought she had done a really good job and had made significant gains from practice to the race. She was on the lead lap, and could have finished 18th or 20th. So I said she should know better because I say things I think need to be said at the time.” Afterward, Patrick complained about “consistent” on-track issues with Cassill. “At some point I have to stand up for myself so this doesn’t happen with other people. I chose today,” she said. Zipadelli backed up her claim about Cassill, who has “broken her chops at least the last four races and I don’t know why. He hasn’t raced her clean or professionally since we started this. “I don’t know if there’s jealousy there that she’s got this ride, because there is some of that with her, we see some of that from a lot of people in this sport,” he said.

IndyCar not for sale, but maybe it should be By The Associated Press The IndyCar Series, we’ve been told three times in three weeks, is not for sale. Maybe it’s time the Hulman-George family reconsiders that position. No, IndyCar should not be sold to founder Tony George, who cited the conflict of interest in his recent attempt to reacquire the series in his Friday resignation from the Hulman & Co. board of directors. But if there is a

buyer out there willing to step in and put an end to the drama and put the focus instead on growth, stability and IndyCar’s strong on-track product, then by all means, open the bidding. Wasn’t it just five weeks ago that Ryan HunterReay became the first American to win the IndyCar title since 2006? And Chevrolet wrapped up the manufacturer championship in its first year back in the series after a sixyear absence? That capped

a season that saw the debut of IndyCar’s first new car in nine years, eight different on-track winners, parity down the grid and a thrilling Indianapolis 500. It was one of the most exciting IndyCar seasons in history, and some might even argue the racing is the best on-track product in any current motorsports series. Why isn’t anyone talking about any of that? Because every single bit of it has been overshadowed again and again by off-

track nonsense. Something has got to give in IndyCar. Now. Before it’s too late for the series to ever get any solid footing in this country again. Formula One will be broadcast on NBC and NBC Sports Network IndyCar’s current cable partner beginning next season. And sports car racing in the U.S. will be under one NASCAR-owned banner in 2014 when Grand-Am and ALMS merge, and that series will

also be looking for a television contract. If IndyCar doesn’t get its act together quickly, the series could be in serious danger of becoming irrelevant when it comes to advertising and sponsorship dollars, the money that fuels the sport. Maybe the now 10 members on the Hulman & Co. board see the writing on the wall, and that’s what drove Friday’s shortnotice executive meeting. Unfortunately, as is often the case in IndyCar, it’s impossible to be sure.

Troy’s Miles Hibbler is brought down by a group of Piqua defenders during a game Friday night at Alexander Stadium in Piqua.

Piqua topples Troy Offense non-existent for Trojans in 14-0 loss BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor The Troy football team was a like a man who had just told an inappropriate joke at a party and wanted to make sure no one’s feelings had been hurt. “No offense. No offense. No offense.” Hey … none taken. In the 128th meeting between the two teams, Piqua’s defense completely dominated the Trojan offense from start to finish — and the results was a 14-0 Piqua win Friday at Alexander Stadium. With the win, Piqua finished the regular season 6-4, 3-2 in the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division. Troy finishes at 4-6 (2-3). With the win, Piqua closed the gap between the two teams in the series to 62-60-6 and ended Troy’s five-year run of wins over the Indians. “Our offense wasn’t very good,” Troy coach Scot Brewer said. Which has been a problem for the Trojans all season long. Friday, however, it may have hit a new low — thanks in large part to the outstanding play of the

Piqua defense, which totally dominated the line of scrimmage. For the game, the Trojans finished with just 49 yards in offense, 4 yards rushing and managed just two first downs — the first of which did not come until late in the third quarter. “We didn’t have any maulers up front,” Brewer said. “Their defense pushed us around. We couldn’t move the ball because we couldn’t get a push on the line.”

PIQUA Piqua’s offense didn’t do anything spectacular — but thanks in large part to good field position as a result of Troy’s inability to move the ball and a pair of turnovers — all it had to be was effective. Which it was. The Indians were led by the one-two punch of senior runnning backs Austin Covault and Ryan Hughes. Covault finished the game with 19 carries for 126 yards, while Hughes had 19 carries for 85 yards and both of the Indians’ touchdowns. Behind those two, Piqua actually Troy quarterback Matt Barr looks for a target against Piqua Friday

Braves edge Devils BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor Tippecanoe had been in similar situations plenty of times. Last year against MiltonUnion, a blocked extra point opened the door for a come-frombehind one-point victory by the Red Devils. And just two weeks ago, the Devils scored the gametying touchdown in the final seconds to force overtime against Tecumseh — a game Tippecanoe eventually lost. So when Springfield Shawnee’s Clay Phillips returned an interception on a screen pass for a touchdown for the go-ahead score in the third quarter but a bad snap led to a blocked extra point, the door was open for the Devils once again. “When that extra point was blocked, we told the kids that was our window of opportunity,” coach Charlie STAFF PHOTO/MARK DOWD Tippecanoe Tippecanoe’s Jacob Hall runs the ball during a game against Burgbacher said. “You see things Springfield Shawnee Friday in Springfield. happen like that, you make ref-

SPRINGFIELD erences and you talk to the kids about them, but they don’t buy in all the time. They live in the moment.” Tippecanoe’s potential moment came when it got one last chance with the ball from its own 38-yard line with 2:16 left to play, but the Devils couldn’t recover from a sack on first down and the Braves (7-3, 4-1 Central Buckeye Conference Kenton Trail Division) were able to cling to a 20-14 victory Friday night at Shawnee. “It’s hard. Hard and frustrating,” Burgbacher said. “They didn’t do anything we didn’t anticipate, they just did it better.” Despite a clutch goal-line stand in the first half, beginning three drives out of four in Brave territory between the second and third quarters and forcing a turnover on downs to get the ball back for one last attempt to win

Amid changes, PSU, OSU still rolling STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — The Big Ten won’t hand out a championship trophy to the winner of the Ohio State-Penn State game Saturday night, so bragging rights will have to do. The ninth-ranked Buckeyes and surging Nittany Lions just might be the class of the conference at midseason, but neither team can win the league title or play in the postseason because of NCAA sanctions. Saturday’s meeting then, has turned into a virtual midseason bowl game, complete with a national television audience and plenty of hype. About 107,000 rowdy fans are expected to pack Beaver Stadium, which would be the first sellout of the season. Welcome to the “IneligiBowl.” “We only get the chance to lay it on the line 12 times, 12 Saturdays. So every game for us is a very, very big game,” Penn State coach Bill O’Brien said. “And we’re playing probably the best team in the Big Ten this week, with a great head coach in Urban Meyer.” Two coaches in their first years at their respective, well-known programs sad-

Yet there are the undefeated Buckeyes (8-0, 4-0) and Nittany Lions (5-2, 3-0), playing another high-stakes conference game like nothing’s changed. First place in the Leaders Division is at stake. “I assume it’s going to be, because it’s a night game, I’m sure the crowd will be nice,” senior tight end/receiver Jake Stoneburner said tongue-in-cheek. And yet so much has changed since the last time these two teams met, a 20-14 win for Penn State in

January. Seven months later, a school already reeling from the aftereffects of the scandal was rocked again when the NCAA levied landmark penalties including a fouryear bowl ban. Ohio State has a one-year bowl ban for the memorabilia-for-tattoos scandal during former coach Jim Tressel’s tenure. “I know there’s going to be some tough sanctions against them. I don’t really understand all of them,” Meyer said before talking about what he has had to study up on all week. “Penn State has great football players right now.” Especially on defense, where the veteran linebacking crew of Michael Mauti, Gerald Hodges and Glenn Carson will be charged with keeping an eye on Buckeyes dual-threat quarterback Braxton Miller — sore neck and all.

Johnson wins pole; Keselowski 32nd MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) — Jimmie Johnson’s championship hopes got a boost Friday when he won the pole position for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Martinsville Speedway, while points leader Brad Keselowski qualified 32nd. Johnson, a five-time champion, gained not only the top starting spot with his lap at 97.598 miles per hour, but the stall at the front of pit road, giving him unimpeded access to the track. “Track position is important, and then that pit stall is so important,” Johnson said. He trails Keselowski by seven points with four races remaining. Denny Hamlin, who is third in the points race and 13 behind Johnson, will start fifth. An additional disadvan-

tage seemed to be the last thing Keselowski needed, primarily because his two closest pursuers in the title chase are the two drivers that have dominated at Martinsville in recent years. Johnson has won six times on the 0.526-mile, paper clip-shaped oval, and has led 1,788 laps. Hamlin has won four times here, and led 1,127 laps. Keselowski, making only his sixth start at the track, has led two laps and finished no higher than ninth. He’s confident he can make up for his poor twolap run when the most important 500 laps are put on the scoreboard, and pointed to last weekend in Kansas, where he qualified 25th and raced his way to finish eighth.

Milton-Union Obliterates Northridge DAYTON — All MiltonUnion had to do to ensure itself a share of the Southwestern Buckeye League Buckeye Division title was beat Northridge (18, 1-4) on Friday. And the Bulldogs had the game well in hand by half. Milton (8-2, 5-1) scored 21 in the first quarter, added 27 more in the second and rolled to a 48-0 win. Tyler Brown struck first for the Bulldogs with a 31yard TD run. David Karns followed with touchdown runs of 30 and seven yards to close out the scoring in the first. Joseph Thoele busted through for a 63-yard TD run, then tacked on a 6-yard score. Brown scored his second TD on a 35-yard run, before Sam Niswonger

returned an interception 45 yards to the house — capping off a 27-point second quarter. The Bulldogs — which sat at No. 7 in the latest playoff rankings — will find out who they will face in the playoffs on Sunday.

Bradford Holds Off TV South WEST ALEXANDRIA — Twin Valley South struck first against Bradford, taking a 6-0 lead into the second quarter Friday night. But what followed was an offensive explosion from the playoff-bound Railroaders. Bradford (8-2, 6-2 Cross County Conference) scored 22 unanswered points in the second quarter to open up a 22-6 halftime cushion. From there, the Railroaders went on to win 30-20 in West Alexandria. The Roaders await to

hear who they will play in the playoffs.

Miami East Crushes Trail CASSTOWN — National Trail was vying for its first seven-win season in school history against Cross County Conference foe Miami East Friday night. The Vikings weren’t trying to let that to happen. The Vikings (7-3, 7-2) blitzed out a 37-6 halftime lead on the Blazers (6-4, 5-4) en route to a 50-15 victory in Casstown. East scored in about every way possible. Michael Fellers scored on kickoff return — which was his fourth special teams touchdown of the season. Kevin Jackson had an interception return for a TD and the Vikings also scored on a safety. Meanwhile, its offense was clicking on all cylinders.

"Our offense did well running the ball in this weather," Current said. "All the backs ran well. Fellers had some good runs, Colton McKinney and Colton Holicki had some big ones. Our offensive line did a good job blocking." The East defense dominated, as well. Other than one long passing score in the first quarter, Trail manufactured no other first downs in the half. The Vikings have to wait until Sunday to find out their playoff fate. East needed some help, and got some. Triad, who was ahead of East in the latest playoff rankings, lost on Friday. Marion Pleasant, also ranked ahead of the Vikings, lost in overtime. "We're pretty pumped that we're in this situation," Miami East coach Max Current said. "When we lost to Tri-County North, I thought we were out of it. Hopefully the football gods rain down on us tonight."

But if this is the end of the road, Current had some thanks to give. "I want to thank my assistant coaches Scott Donaldson, Mark Rose, Kevin Evans, Scott Kirby and Todd Hawkins for their dedication to Miami East football," Current said.

45-13 victory over Arcanum to finish the regular season unbeaten at 10-0. A.J. Ouellette had four touchdowns in the first half and Troy Cron ran for two as the Buccs built a 20-0 lead after one quarter, before taking a 38-0 into half. Brandon Magee had the final TD for the Buccs.

Covington Routs Bethel hammers Arcanum Mississinawa COVINGTON — The Covington Buccs entered Valley Friday’s game against Arcanum having already clinched their 13th Cross County Conference championship. The Buccs had already locked up their 13th playoff appearance in the last 14 years. What was on the line for Covington, though, was another perfect regular season. And the Buccs went out with style on Senior Night, coasting to a

BRANDT — The Bethel Bees jumped out to a 23-0 lead by half, then scored 13 unanswered in the third en route to a 43-0 win over Mississinawa Valley Friday. For the Bees, Mason Kretzer had touchdown runs of 65, 30, 29 and two yards. Gus Schwieterman added a 15-yard TD run and Derrick Diddle scored on a 24-yard rush.

Troy-Piqua ■ CONTINUED FROM 17 had several chances to take an early lead, but was turned away each time by a stingy Trojan defense. Piqua’s first five drives all ended in Trojan territory — inclulding two which ended inside the Troy 25 — without any points. Each time the defense was tested by Piqua’s offense, it rose to the challenge. “Our defense played outstanding,” Brewer said. “But we left them on the field too long. They were out there all night. We really kept putting our defense in bad positions.” Late in the first half, the offense put the Trojans in the worst possible of positions. With less than a minute to go in the first half, Troy actually had rushed for negative yardage. Brewer inserted seldom-used sophomore halfback Tre Whitson to try to spark the offense. On his second carry of the night, Whitson fumbled the ball and Covault — who also played outside linebacker for the Indians — recovered it at the Trojan 26. This time, the Trojan

Friday night, it was That hope ended midway through the fourth downright offensive.

■ CONTINUED FROM 17 the game late in the fourth, Tippecanoe (7-3, 3-2 CBC Kenton Trail) simply couldn’t break the critical big play that they’ve lived by all season. The Red Devils amassed a total of 171 yards of offense in the game — 131 on the ground, well below their average. “We kept thinking that we were getting these opportunities and we were going to break one, and we didn’t,” Burgbacher said. “Offensively, we just didn’t.” The loss leaves the Red Devils’ playoff hopes in limbo. They entered the night in sixth in Division II Region 8 with roughly a four-computer point lead over the 10thplace team in the standings. The playoff teams will be made official on Sunday, with the top eight teams getting in. After a quick 51-yard drive by Shawnee to open the game led to a 15-yard Alex McCrory touchdown, Tippecanoe immediately went three-and-out and gave the ball back. The Braves kept the ball for 15 plays and drove it down the field once again, getting a first-andgoal from the Red Devil 6yard line. But a holding penalty on second down pushed the Braves back to the 20, and on fourth-and-goal from the 2, J.D. Davis was stopped just short, giving the Devils the ball inside the 1. Tippecanoe drove a short way before Ben Hughes boomed a 51-yard punt, and the Braves punted it right back, a 26-yarder that got the Devils’ back off the wall. Facing fourth-and-eight on the Shawnee 35, Hughes spotted Cameron Johnson on a wheel route, but no one on the Shawnee defense picked him up. The wide-open Johnson scored the easiest 35-yard touchdown of his career, and the Devils tied the score at 7-7 early in the second quarter. The Braves had the answer, though. Drew Young bounced off of a wall at the line, found a crack through and went 54 yards untouched after the initial contact, putting Shawnee back up 14-7. A short kickoff, big return and unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the Braves gave the Devils the ball on the 12-yard line on the ensuing possession, but the Braves forced a turnover on a

A 16-yard punt didn’t help Shawnee’s cause as the Devils took over again at the 32, but an offensive pass interference call on thirdand-eight ensured that Tippecanoe didn’t score before the break, and the Braves clung to the 14-7 lead. That lead evaporated after a 5-yard punt hung up in the wind early in the third, giving the Devils the ball on the Shawnee 27. Johnson carried the ball twice for a first down, and Jacob Hall slipped through the line for a 13-yard score to tie things up at 14-14. Shawnee drove to the Tippecanoe 12 but fumbled the ball away, giving Tippecanoe possession at its own 7. Faced with third-andeight from the 24, Hughes dropped back and tossed a screen pass – but Phillips read it the whole way, broke on the ball before it was even thrown and took it 20 yards untouched to put the Braves back on top with 1:46 left in the third. The snap was low on the extra-point attempt, though, and the Devil defense came through again and stuffed it, making the score 20-14 and

leaving the window open. Shawnee forced a fumble on the ensuing drive to keep momentum, though, but the Braves couldn’t do anything with the chance, either. The Devils punted the ball away, and the Braves took over at their own 16 – and went on to hold it for 11 plays and 44 yards before going for it on fourth-and-three from the Tippecanoe 40, coming up one yard short with 2:16 on the clock. Colin Boles sacked the quarterback on the first play of the drive for a 6-yard loss, though, and on fourth-andfour, Hall was stopped at the line of scrimmage, allowing the Braves to run out the clock. “We lived by the big play all year, and tonight we didn’t get one,” Burgbacher said. Shawnee piled up 314 rushing yards in the game, with all-time leading rusher McCrory finishing with 187 yards on 28 attempts. “Obviously they were able to run the ball better than us tonight,” Burgbacher said. “We didn’t consistently stop the run.” Or find a way through the open door.

No. 5 Irish, No. 8 Sooners add to rich history NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — The words “Play Like a Champion Today” are plastered on the walls leading from the locker room to the field at both No. 5 Notre Dame and No. 8 Oklahoma, a rich piece of tradition the storied schools happen to share. Come Saturday night, a rare meeting between the programs will test the championship mettle for both the Fighting Irish (70) and the Sooners (5-1). It’s just the second meeting since 1968 in a series that has fallen in Notre Dame’s favor throughout the years. Oklahoma’s only win in nine tries against the Irish

came exactly 56 years ago in 1956. Three times, the Sooners suffered their only loss of a season against Notre Dame, including the end of their NCAA record 47-game winning streak in 1957. This time, a shot at a championship could be on the line again. “We’re 7-0 and now we have the chance to be 12-0 and now we have a good team coming up,” said Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o, who is garnering Heisman Trophy buzz. “We can’t look past that and we have to just look at Oklahoma, what they do and work on being 8-0.”

Coach Bob Stoops didn’t spend much time harping on the historical implications of the rivalry, but his players certainly were made aware that Oklahoma is just 1-8 alltime against Notre Dame. “That’s all great. It’s unfortunate that that happened, but it’s one of those things where we can’t really worry about that kind of stuff,” said center Gabe Ikard, who grew up a bit of a Notre Dame fan at a Catholic high school in Oklahoma City and considered playing for the Irish. “That makes a great story for the game and it sets it up well, but what it comes down to is two

teams playing each other on the field,” he said. Said safety Javon Harris: “It’s ancient history. We’re here to try to make history.” Seeking its ninth national championship, Notre Dame has built its undefeated start behind Te’o and the nation’s second-stingiest defense, allowing just 9.4 points per game. A bruising running game that produced two 100-yard rushers a week ago has helped overcome uncertainty at quarterback, where sophomore Everett Golson and junior Tommy Rees have split time. Coach Brian Kelly said

Golson will get the start against Oklahoma after sitting out last week’s win against BYU because of lingering issues from a concussion. He called Golson the healthiest he’s been in weeks because of previous shoulder and toe injuries. Rees relieved Golson to lead Notre Dame to wins against Purdue and Michigan before playing start to finish against BYU. “The challenge for us, really, is about how we raise our game in these big games,” said Kelly, whose team has outscored opponents by 30 points per game away from home this

season. “We know Oklahoma is a fine football team. The challenge is always about how we bring our game up. And we have. We’ve played well on the road, and we’re going to have to play our best game of the year on the road. That, to me, is the biggest challenge for us.” Oklahoma’s first-team defense has given up just one touchdown in three games, since yielding 213 yards rushing in a 24-19 loss to Kansas State. The Sooners, trying to get back in the mix to win their eighth national title, see in Notre Dame a chance to show they can do better against a power run game.
