The city of Troy Police Department offers a class for all women to help them not become a statistic. The first line of defense is arming yourself with information and being aware of one’s surrounding. The Troy City Police Department will once again be offering a four-day R.A.D. (Rape Aggressive Defense) class beginning Monday, Nov. 5. The classes begin at 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. and build upon each other throughout each session. The classes will be held on Nov. 5, Nov. 8, Nov. 13 and Nov. 15. The first class will be held at Kyle Elementary on Nov. 5 and the remaining classes will be held at Troy Christian Schools. The program is free and open to any female from junior high age and older. The first class is an academic class and teaches women techniques on how to not become susceptible to attacks. The remaining three classes, participants will learn hands-on techniques and training. The final day of instruction will allow the participants to practice their skills in a simulated attack with an officer. Troy Police Department Officer Joel Misirian is a RAD certified instructor and has taught classes for more than seven years. The last class features an area officer who will wear the Red Man Aggression Suit to simulate attacks for the women in the class. The largest women’s self-defense system in the United States, R.A.D., according to the Troy Police Department website, is a program of realistic tactics that educates women on awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance while teaching

other city services, meaning failure to pass the levy would entail possibly cutting other services, programs or staff. The MCPH contract costs more than $300,000 a year. Before the state budget cuts, the city could afford the health department contract out of its general fund. But the state budget cuts forced the city of Troy to seek other revenue sources. The public health department provides services to more than 82,000 Miami County residents,

The new Chapter 721 of codified ordinances would prohibit panhandling from any operator or occupant of a motor vehicle or a person exiting such vehicle; on private property, unless prior permission has been obtained; within 20 feet of ATM machines; at bus stops or bus shelters; and within 20 feet of the entrance to a building or parking lot, among other restrictions. No children are permitted to panhandle. Exceptions are made for solicitations sought for donation to a charitable or civic organization. Violating the new section to the Troy Municipal Code would be considered a fourth-degree misdemeanor. In response to a question from council, City of Troy Law Director Jim Livingston said exit ramps and on ramps are already addressed by legislation. He said he doesn’t foresee any time limits on panhandling. He added, “It’s a fine line you have to walk with free speech and aggressive panhandling.” Committee members also discussed amending a chapter regarding vendor businesses that has not been updated in

more than 40 years. The draft ordinance outlines more specifically what food vendors/vehicles are and gives time and proximity requirements for mobile food vehicles. For example, under the proposed ordinance — still in draft form — vendors could not be open for business within 100 yards of restaurants and other eating places. Titterington said the goal of the legislation is to protect businesses that operate in the community year-round from facing unfair competition. Draft legislation proposed a time limit of a half hour, but committee members recommended council look into providing an hour of time for mobile food vehicles to remain stationary. Obtaining a vendor license and mobile food vehicle vending license are both required, among other requirements. Vendors must also file applications with the chief of police.

All other cities and villages use property taxes to fund participation in the program, Titterington said, and Troy sought to do the same two years ago for the first time. The city has already sought to save money with utility contracts, reorganization and reducing staff. “With significant cuts at the state, we’re out of options,” Titterington said. “State law requires that we offer these services.”

Public Service and Safety Tom Funderburg spoke on the public health levy at last week’s Meet the Candidates Night, which covered all issues regarding the upcoming election. With $1 million cut from the city’s general fund in 2010, the city needed to find other means of funding its participation in the program. A similar levy was placed on a county-wide ballet two years ago, and while it was passed by

Troy voters, it failed in the townships. Services provided include public nursing, vaccinations, immunizations, disease education and inspections, health care for expectant moths and babies, nutrition education, birth and death records and inspections of restaurants, wells, septic systems and other facilities.

Syria presses heavy air bombardment of rebels BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian warplanes fired missiles at opposition strongholds around Damascus and in the north on Wednesday as Turkey, a key backer of the anti-regime rebels, appeared to distance itself from an earlier call to impose a no-fly zone. The Syrian regime has intensified airstrikes in recent days following the failure of a U.N.-backed holiday truce over a four-day

holiday that never took hold. Activists said at least 110 people were killed nationwide in airstrikes, artillery shelling and fighting Wednesday. Wednesday’s casualties pushed the death toll since the conflict began in March 2011 to more than 36,000, according to Rami AbdulRahman, the head of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Tri-Agency meets Discusses upcoming Tipp projects BY CECILIA FOX Record Herald Writer ceciliaafox@gmail.com

Several new construction projects are in store for Tipp City next year, including the renovation of downtown utilities and the Main Street lift station. These projects and more were discussed at Monday’s Tri-Agency meeting for city, township, and school officials. These meetings, held in months with a fifth Monday, are a way for local officials to discuss issues and provide updates on current and upcoming projects. “We are going to have a lot of projects underway next year, which means that a lot of our streets are going to be torn up,” City Manager Jon Crusey said. Crusey provided an update on upcoming construction projects including the Fire/EMS station renovation, the replacement of downtown utilities, and several road resurfacing and water line replacement projects. All of these projects are currently under design and will be put out to bid this winter, with construction beginning next year. The construction on Main Street will include a new water main, replacement of sanitary sewers, building a storm sewer and repairing roads and sidewalks impacted by the work along Main between the railroad tracks and First Street. City officials met with downtown business owners whose businesses will be affected by the construction several weeks ago to discuss the project. Once the plans for the project are finalized, they will meet with the business owners again so they have a better idea of what’s going to happen in front of their buildings. “We’re still working with the engineer on the design of the project.

TIPP CITY The city’s portion of the project includes upgrades to the lift station and a new 30-inch sanitary sewer main. TCA also will build two new 2.5-million gallon water storage tanks near Kyle Park. Council approved a water and sewer rate increase earlier this year to help finance the city’s portion of the project. Road construction in 2013 will include the reconstruction of South Third Street and part of Dow Street and water and sewer line replacements, as well as repaving, on Judith, Michael, and Earl Streets. The current construction on Evanston Road has been an inconvenience to many residents, but since there are two polling places on Evanston Road, the city aims to have the road open to traffic in time for Election Day. The polling places are the Church of Christ and Charity Baptist Church on Evanston Road. Evanston Road was closed due to the construction of water lines and sanitary sewers for the Fieldstone Place assisted living center. That work has been completed and asphalt has been laid on Evanston Road west of County Road 25-A. According to Crusey, the plan is to finish laying asphalt east of 25-A late this week. “Hopefully they’ll have all the asphalt back in

place by the end of the week and the temporary signs and temporary signal out of the way so that that intersection is open and fully functional for the weekend,” Crusey said. “The county does have polling places down in that area, so one of our goal is to get that intersection open so people can get to and from the polls next Tuesday.” According to Crusey, whether or not construction is complete, voters will be able to get to the polls. Township Trustee and veterinarian Martin English also talked about a successful fundraiser to purchase a GPS collar for the city’s police dog, Gitta. The collar can track the dog in real time and keeps a record of everywhere the dog has been. The fundraiser has so far raised about $1,000 to purchase the collar, which is expected to cost about $700. Any money leftover after the purchase will go to the K9 unit, Gitta and her handler Officer Greg Adkins. “We’ve had a good response,” English said. Tipp City schools were again rated “excellent” for the sixth year in a row and have been excelling in sports and music, but according to Superintendent John Kronour, the district will be facing some challenges in the future. The last school levy, a five-year, 7.95-mill emergency levy, was soundly defeated in August.

RED=Pro-Life/Pro-Family Counties

FACT: A very serious effort is underway to repeal Ohio’s marriage amendment. And the country stands at a perilous crossroads with the very future of marriage, Life, and our core liberties of free speech and freedom of religion hanging in the balance.

Vote Kennedy for judge To the Editor: Judge Sharon Kennedy is one of the most outstanding and accomplished candidates to ever offer herself for the Ohio Supreme Court. She has studied, trained and prepared for the highest court in our state her entire life. Her credentials go beyond the typical candidate because of her first job. After working her way through college, she was a a police officer for the city of Hamilton. That unique experience will help her bring hard-won, real-life wisdom to every vote she casts. When they don their black robes, some Supreme Court Justices thing they have the power to legislate from the bench. Not only is that wrong; it is an abuse of power. Judge Sharon Kennedy is a strict constitutionalist and that means she will look to our United States and Ohio Constitutions for guidance.

Election costing us our civility To the Editor: Are we losing our civility? Occasionally, I find myself believing the answer is a resounding yes. More often than not, I rationalize that the degradation of civility is more the exception than the rule — unless it is an election year. This morning, I opened my front door to a stranger. He didn’t identify himself, but I assumed he lived in my neighborhood. He proceeded to wonder, aloud, why the political sign in my front yard was the only one not stolen during the night, unlike all of the others in the neighborhood. I was perplexed by his questioning of me. Why would a perfect stranger appear at my door with information about the theft of political signs in the neighborhood and continually question why my sign was spared? Then it hit me! He was insinuating that I had stolen the signs because I happen to support a different political viewpoint. I was taken aback by the inappropriateness of his behavior and his lack of restraint. This man does not know me, yet he felt justified to come onto my property to accuse me of theft. Of course, I did not take the signs and communicated that truth to him. It was not a surprise that he did not believe me and that his last words to me were derogatory. Does Freedom come with Responsibility? I believe so, it is evident my visitor this morning believes otherwise.

Riding roller coasters ain’t quite like it used to be My daughter is at the age where she is learning to love roller coasters. Where she once feared giant coasters, now she can’t get enough of the steep hills, the loops and the unfettered speed. I am at the age where I am learning to hate roller coasters. Where I once loved the giant coasters, I now can’t stand the pounding headaches, stiff neck and unfettered feelings of nausea. My daughter also happens to be at the age where she is pretty much the boss of me. What she says, goes. This applies from everything from what we are having for dinner that night, in which public places and in front of whom I am allowed to give her a hug — and whether I take on her roller coasters. Which means if she says I’m going to take her on a roller coaster, I had better get in line — because Sophie doesn’t particularly like waiting in lines and the quicker we get in the line, the sooner we get on the roller coaster. Two weeks ago, we took the kids to a nearby amusement park — you know, the one located not far from the state correctional facility (Side note: I’ve often thought that if anyone ever escaped from that facility, I bet the first place they’d go would be

David Fong Troy Daily News Executive Editor King’s Island. I mean, that’s what I would do). I used to love taking the kids to the amusement park, mostly because the most strenuous thing I had to do was stuff my face with LaRosa’s pizza and wave like a moron as my kid passed me by on the merry-go-round. Not anymore. The minute Sophie was tall enough to ride the roller coasters, she wanted to ride every one in the park. The fast ones. The upside ones. The shake your head back and forth so hard you feel like you’ve worked up a good case of whiplash ones. Kiddie-land no longer was on her list of things to do. Right around the same time she was falling in love with roller coasters, I found, I was falling out of love with them.

It wasn’t always like that. There was a time when I loved the steel and wooden behemoths and would literally sprint from one coaster to the next to get in line and wait my turn to ride the biggest and baddest ones in the park. Somewhere along the line, however, I got old. And roller coasters started to hurt. The first thing I remember thinking when we sat down on “The Beast” — a roller coaster I’ve ridden dozens of times in my life — was “Wow, they started making the seats on this thing smaller.” It never actually dawned on me that, quite possibly, my posterior had gotten bigger. I quickly found out, however, my increased body mass didn’t keep me from getting jostled around by the speed of the roller coaster, however. By the time the ride was over, I had a splitting headache and was sick to my stomach. And that was just the first roller coaster we rode that day. When I was a kid, I used to pity my parents, who used to put us on rides and then would amble off to do whatever it is parents do at amusements parks when their kids are riding roller coasters. (Seriously? What do parents do at

amusement parks when their kids are riding roller coasters and they are not? My guess? Drink heavily). The difference was, my parents could always ship me off with an older brother or sister to ride roller coasters. Sophie has no older brothers or sisters and her little brother isn’t tall enough to ride roller coasters yet. And her mother — who also is at an age where she is pretty much the boss of me — also has no desire to ride roller coasters, which meant it would be my duty that day to ride coasters with Sophie. I would have much preferred it had been my duty to stay at home and watch the Ohio State football team’s thrilling victory over Purdue, the alma mater of the second grade teacher on whom I used to have a huge crush. Oh well, the good news is I survived King’s Island for yet another year. Soon enough, however, we’ll be back and Sophie will be wanting to ride roller coasters again. Maybe I’ll get lucky and she’ll shrink by then. Troy’s very own David Fong appears on Thursdays in the Troy Daily News. His life is one big roller coaster ride.

Former President Bill Clinton speaks at a campaign rally for President Barack Obama in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Wednesday. Clinton is expected to make appearances on behalf of Obama between now and Tuesday’s election day.

President Obama, Bill Clinton set Ohio stops CINCINNATI (AP) — President Barack Obama is resuming his storm-delayed chase to win Ohio with help from former President Bill Clinton, while Republicans are putting together a huge rally for Friday evening in suburban Cincinnati. The Obama campaign said the Democratic president on Friday will campaign at the Franklin County Fairgrounds in central Ohio, followed by a previously announced rally in Springfield and an afternoon rally in Lima. The western Ohio stops are both at high schools. Obama had canceled two Ohio campaign visits, including a Wednesday rally in Cincinnati, and rescheduled the Springfield rally while he dealt with the needs and federal response after superstorm Sandy pounded the East Coast. Clinton will work Ohio for Obama on Thursday, with rallies in Toledo, Akron and Chillicothe. Details will be announced later. Two polls released Wednesday indicated a tight race in Ohio between Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney. The latest Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News poll released Wednesday showed Obama at 50 percent, Romney at 45 percent and a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points. The findings were virtually unchanged from the school’s Oct. 22 poll. Pollsters interviewed 1,110 likely Ohio voters by phone Oct. 23 to 28. Obama continued to hold a large advantage among women voters in that poll, with Romney doing better among men and independent voters. The Ohio Poll, sponsored by the University of Cincinnati, showed a neckand-neck race, with Obama at 48 percent, Romney 46 percent, and 2 percent for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. The poll of 1,182 likely voters conducted by phone Oct. 25 to 30 has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points. It also showed Obama doing better among female voters; Romney better with males, while the poll indicated Obama was running ahead among independents.

The Ohio Poll showed Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown with 49 percent, while his Republican challenger, state Treasurer Josh Mandel, had 44 percent, findings that also fell within the poll’s margin of error. Johnson, the former Republican New Mexico governor who is the Libertarian Party’s presidential candidate, also will be in Ohio on Friday. His campaign said Johnson would make stops in Dayton, Bowling Green and Streetsboro. Meanwhile, the campaign of Romney and running mate Paul Ryan said they will be joined by an expanded list of big-name Republicans and star athletes Friday at their rally in the northern Cincinnati suburb of West Chester. Besides Romney’s wife, Ann, and children and Ryan’s wife, Janna, the campaign said nearly 100 other surrogates will be campaigning this weekend for the ticket, with the push kicking off in West Chester. Among those expected in West Chester are former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman and golf star Jack Nicklaus. The campaign released a long list of other well-known Republicans expected for West Chester or in other swing states. Romney and Ryan have focused earlier appearances this week on storm relief, with Romney gathering supplies Tuesday in Kettering, Ohio. The Quinnipiac poll showed Brown leading his hotly contested race with Mandel. The poll put Brown with a 51 to 42 percent lead, with a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points. And it also showed Gov. John Kasich’s approval ratings have risen. The poll indicated a 49 percent job approval rating, to 37 percent who disapprove, for the first-term Republican governor. The poll also indicated that 52 percent of likely voters surveyed said Ohio’s economy is getting better. That’s good news for Kasich but also potentially helpful to the incumbent president.

Ohio court halts ruling on expanded ballot counting statement. The ballots at issue are dubbed “wrong church, wrong pew,” referring to both a mistaken polling place and a mistaken precinct. A lawyer for a union that sued over the issue said as many as 8,000 voters cast such ballots in 2008. Some polling places contain voting machines for several precincts. Voters in the right building, but in the wrong precinct, are labeled “right church, wrong pew.” Ohio has been ordered to count those under a previous court decision. However, the state had opposed counting ballots at wrong polling locations, saying it could create Election Day chaos among other problems. The three-judge appeals panel agreed. It wrote in its opinion that the lower court’s ruling would result in “interference with orderly election administration

and greater confusion among poll workers and voters.” The appeals court decision delays an Oct. 24 ruling by Columbus federal Judge Algenon Marbley, who said he based his order on the rationale that such problems arise because of mistakes by poll workers. But the appeals court questioned whether such ballots at the wrong polling locations should be counted. “Though voters must rely heavily on poll workers to direct them to the proper precinct in a multi-precinct voting place, they are not as dependent on poll workers to identify their correct polling place,” the appeals court concluded. The decision was an elections victory for Husted, a Republican. It followed an Oct. 16 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in which it refused a request by Husted and Ohio’s attorney general to get involved in a dispute over early voting.

He received his high school diploma many years later in a special service for veterans held at Miami East High School. Maurice was a member of the Christiansburg United Methodist Church and a retired member of the Christiansburg Fire Company. He retired from BFGoodrich Co., Troy, in 1986. He loved restoring John Deere tractors and spending time with his grandchildren. Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Monday, Nov. 5, 2012, in the Atkins-Shively Funeral Home, 216 S. Springfield St., St. Paris, with the Rev. Mark Atterholt presiding. Burial will follow in the Casstown Cemetery with military honors by the Veterans Elite Tribute Squad. Visitation for family and friends will be from 2-5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4, 2012, in the funeral home, with fire department services by the Christiansburg Fire Company at 5 p.m. Memorial donations may be made to Christiansburg Fire Company, P.O. Box 300, Christiansburg, OH 45389. Envelopes will be available in the funeral home. Condolences to the family may be sent to www.shivelyfuneralhomes.com.

DEATHS OF NATIONAL INTEREST • Cordelia Edvardson STOCKHOLM (AP) — Cordelia Edvardson, a Holocaust survivor and award-winning Swedish journalist who reported on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for three decades, has died. She was 83. Edvardson was the Jerusalem correspondent for Swedish daily Svenska Dagbladet from 1977 to 2006 and later worked as a columnist for the paper. She was born in Munich, Germany, in 1929. Her father was Jewish and though she was raised Catholic, the Nazis regarded her as a Jew and sent her to concentration camps in Theresienstadt and Auschwitz. She described her experiences in a 1984 autobiography for which she won the German Geschwister-Scholl literary award. Edvardson moved to Sweden after the war and started her career in journalism, winning several awards for her work. Svenska Dagbladet said Edvardson died Monday after an undisclosed illness. • Bill Dees LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Singer-songwriter Bill Dees, who penned the hit “Oh, Pretty Woman” with Roy Orbison, has died.

A memorial celebration is planned for Saturday at the funeral home, followed by a gathering in Branson, Mo., on Nov. 11. Born in Electra, Texas, Dees traveled to Nashville, Tenn., as a young man to seek a future in the music business, and he eventually hooked up with Orbison. The two wrote songs and toured in the U.S. and abroad for years. Dees lived in Mountain Home and in south Missouri since 1989. His obituary at

the funeral home noted Dees enjoyed fishing but most loved singing and playing piano and guitar.

• Betty Anne Ward McCaskill JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Betty Anne Ward McCaskill, the mother of Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill and a political trailblazer in her own right, died Monday at her home in St. Louis after a long struggle with heart and kidney problems, the senator said. The first-term Democratic senator, who is locked in a close re-election race with Republican Rep. Todd Akin, had canceled most of her campaign events starting last week to spend time with her 84-year-old mother. She said Saturday that her mother suffered from acute cardio-renal failure and had lost consciousness at several points in recent days. “We were incredibly lucky to have a mother like her, a woman of great intellect and strength, who loved and nurtured, challenged and pushed, and was always there with wise counsel and great humor,” McCaskill said in a statement. Long before her daughter entered Missouri politics, Betty Anne McCaskill had made her own mark in Democratic circles. McCaskill has recalled how her mother sent her children out on Halloween in 1960 with the door-to-door message: “Trick or treat and vote for JFK,” referring to the Democratic presidential candidate, John F. Kennedy. In 1970, she was appointed to the Missouri Commission on the Status of Women, and the next year, she became the first women elected to the Columbia, Mo., City Council. She also once served as president for the trustees of William Woods University in Fulton, her alma mater.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A federal appeals court on Wednesday temporarily halted an attempt by voter advocates to expand the conditions under which provisional ballots are counted in the swing state of Ohio. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati put on hold a lower court’s ruling that said the state must count provisional ballots cast not just in the wrong precinct but in the wrong polling location altogether. With less than a week before Election Day, the appeals court ruling brought some clarity to one of the remaining disputes involving Ohio’s election procedures. Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted’s broader appeal on the matter remains before the appeals court, but it isn’t expected to be decided before the election Tuesday. Husted said Wednesday that the court’s move allows him to provide Ohio’s 88 county elections boards with guidance for processing provisional ballots, which are counted later and can be challenged. Allowing the lower court ruling to continue, he said, had the potential to cause problems and confusion. “Voters could have cast ballots wherever they wanted to in the county, regardless of their eligible precinct,” Husted said in a

Airports, stock exchange reopen New Jersey devastated

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — President Barack Obama jetted to stormstricken New Jersey on Wednesday for a first-hand look at the devastation, as his aides tried to keep overt politics at bay for one more day. Still, with Election Day less than a week away, Obama’s visit was layered with political implications. The deadly storm has given Obama an opportunity to project presidential leadership in the final days of the tightly contested White House race. And Obama’s tour guide in New Jersey was the state’s Republican Gov. Chris Christie, a supporter of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. To the chagrin of some Republicans, Christie has lavished praise on Obama for his efforts in helping states dealing with the storm. White House spokesman Jay Carney said there were no political motivations behind Obama’s decision to join his supporter’s rival Wednesday. “This is not a time for politics,” Carney said. “The president appreciates the efforts of governors, state and local officials across the various states that were affected by the storm regardless of political party.” Christie was on hand to greet Obama as Air Force One landed on a sunny, breezy day in Atlantic City. The two men, along with FEMA administrator Craig Fugate, boarded Marine One for an hour-long aerial tour of the storm damage. Obama stopped by FEMA headquarters in Washington before heading to New Jersey. Wednesday marked Obama’s third straight day off the campaign trail. He canceled rallies across four battleground states and retreated to the White House to oversee the government’s storm response. Obama planned to return to the campaign trail Thursday, with stops planned in Green Bay, Wis., Las Vegas and Boulder, Colo. He planned to be on the road campaigning every day through the Nov. 6 election.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie issued an order postponing Halloween trick-or-treating until Monday, saying floodwaters, downed electrical wires, power outages and fallen trees made it too dangerous for children to go out. President Barack Obama planned to visit Atlantic City, N.J., which was directly in the storm’s path Monday night and saw part of its historic boardwalk washed away. Outages in the state’s two largest cities, Newark and Jersey City, left traffic signals dark, resulting in fender-benders at intersections where police were not directing traffic. At one Jersey City supermarket, there were long lines to get bread and use an electrical outlet to charge cellphones. Amid the despair, talk of recovery was already beginning. “It’s heartbreaking after being here 37 years,” Barry Prezioso of Point Pleasant, N.J., said as he returned to his house in the beachfront community. “You see your

Storm stats address rain and wind totals CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The small New Hampshire town of Goshen clocked the highest winds and Randolph got the most rain during superstorm Sandy. The National Weather Service is releasing its final roundup of record winds, rain and snowfall from the superstorm. Goshen clocked the highest winds of any New Hampshire community at 70 mph, although winds at the summit of Mount Washington were twice that Monday. Rainfall in Randolph measured just over 6 inches less than half of Easton, Maryland’s nationwide high of 12.5 inches. The weather service recorded no snowfall in New Hampshire. Not so Gatlinburg, Tenn., which topped the charts at 34 inches. The highest wind gusts 90 mph were recorded in Islip, N.Y. and Tompkinsville, N.J.

Obama gets look at storm’s wake

President Barack Obama, followed by Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) administrator Craig Fugate steps off Air Force One, upon their arrival at Atlantic City International Airport in Atlantic City, N.J., Wednesday.

NEW YORK (AP) — Two major airports reopened and the New York Stock Exchange got back to business Wednesday, while across the river in New Jersey, National Guardsmen rushed to feed and rescue flood victims two days after Superstorm Sandy struck. For the first time since the storm slammed the Northeast, killing at least 62 people and inflicting billions of dollars in damage, brilliant sunshine washed over the nation’s largest city a striking sight after days of gray skies, rain and wind. At the stock exchange, running on generator power, Mayor Michael Bloomberg gave a thumbsup and rang the opening bell to whoops from traders on the floor. Trading resumed after the first twoday weather shutdown since the Blizzard of 1888. New York’s subway system was still down, but Gov. Andrew Cuomo said parts of it will begin running again on Thursday. And he said some commuter rail service between the city and its suburbs would resume on Wednesday afternoon. Kennedy and Newark Liberty airports began handling flights again just after 7 a.m. New York’s LaGuardia Airport, which suffered far worse damage and still had water on its runways, remained closed. It was clear that restoring the region to its ordinarily frenetic pace could take days and that rebuilding the hardest-hit communities and the transportation networks that link them could take considerably longer. About 6 million homes and businesses were still without power, mostly in New York and New Jersey. Electricity was out as far west as Wisconsin and as far south as the Carolinas. The scale of the challenge could be seen across the Hudson River in New Jersey, where National Guard trucks rolled into heavily flooded Hoboken to deliver ready-to-eat meals and other supplies and to evacuate people from their condo high-rises, brownstones and other homes. The mayor of the city of 50,000 issued an appeal for people to bring boats to City Hall to help with the evacuation. Natural gas fires raged Wednesday in a section of Brick Township, N.J., where dozens of houses were devastated by the storm’s surge. No injuries were reported.

Try this delicious cornbread recipe Our six youngest children left for school at 7 a.m. This is the third day now that Loretta has taken the regular bus. She can make it all day at school without her wheelchair, although when she comes home she is ready to rest.The handicapped bus has been picking her up since her surgery six weeks ago. Her braces will be ready Tuesday and that is also when her therapy begins. This has been an extra busy week. We have been painting the living room ceilings and walls. We moved all the furniture over to the dining area. After all the painting was done we moved everything back into the living room giving it a thorough clean in the process. Sister Emma and daughter Elizabeth assisted us with our work. Emma and I painted while Susan and Elizabeth washed all the dishes in my cupboard, cleaned furniture, and floors. Now Susan and I will work on putting more things back in place including putting all the books back in my bookcase. We had very nice weather to do the painting. Temperatures were in the 70s and it was cold and rainy. The thermometer shows 45 degrees. Looks like today’s laundry will be hung on the lines in the basement. We will wait to paint the dining room and kitchen until I can get everything organized again. Wednesday evening daughter Elizabeth’s penpal, Sharon, from Dayton, Va.,

Lovina Eicher Troy Daily News Guest Columnist along with her parents, Uncle, Aunt, and cousins stopped in to meet Elizabeth and all of us. We had a nice visit with them. They are readers of this column. It was interesting to talk and compare our ways of life. They are Old Order Mennonites and also have horse and buggy as their transportation. Those families are dairy farmers. The children were glad for the bucket of monster cookies that they brought. Sharon’s mother, Lucille, gave me a rug she weaved herself. It is very nice and I already have it at the front door. It will be useful as I use a lot of rugs with this many feet going in and out every day. We are hoping to be able to go to Sugarcreek, in the near future to visit Joe’s Uncle Solomon. Solomon is in the hospital after breaking quite a few bones after falling 11 feet at work. Our prayers are for him to have a complete and speedy recovery. I would also like to visit Aunt Lovina whom I was named after. She also had a

difficult summer, having a heart attack. She had to have two stents put in. We wish her better health in the future. Joe’s Uncle and Aunt, John and Susie, have always been kind to offer us a place to sleep when we come to Ohio so we might take them up on their offer. Joe has a sister, brother and more uncles and aunts living in that area so hopefully we can see everyone if our plans work out. The firemen were at school this week giving the children lots of good advice about fires. Son Kevin, 7, has been telling all of us what we should do if there is a fire. This is a good thing for children to know but we just got a laugh out of how he was trying to give us lessons. He said “and don’t leave toys laying on the stairs,” then he went over to check our stairs and saw one of his small toys laying on the steps. He quickly picked it up and stuffed it in his pocket thinking we wouldn’t notice. His chatter has entertained us quite often. I will share a simple cornbread recipe for this week: EASY CORNBREAD 1 cup flour 1 cup cornmeal 1 egg, beaten 1 tablespoon baking powder 1 /4 cup oil 1 cup milk 1 /4 cup sugar Mix all ingredients just until mixed. Put in a 9 inch pan and bake at 350 for 20 to 30 minutes. Cornbread makes for a delicious treat on a cold autum day.

Peanut spice mix revitalizes dull Turkey Day side The trouble with butternut squash at the Thanksgiving table is that we tend to be pretty unimaginative in how we prepare it. As such, the results often are fairly lackluster. It’s understandable how it happens. With all the attention given to buttery mashed potatoes, savory stuffing, doughy dinner rolls, tartly sweet cranberry sauce, and of course the allimportant turkey and gravy, butternut (and other winter squashes) tends to suffer from afterthought syndrome. Most people just steam and mash it, giving it the appearance but little of the appeal of mashed potatoes. Others go for roasting, a method I generally favor.

But roasting can be hit or miss depending on the quality of the squash and how well it caramelizes in the oven. And that last part requires reasonably high heat, something hard to deliver when so many other foods are competing for oven time. So I decided to devise a recipe that effortlessly delivers tons of flavor. The effortless part is key. Because while it’s nice to talk about wanting to up the butternut ante, it’s another to find the time to deliver it in the midst of making one of the year’s most anticipated meals. To get those results, I turned to a relatively new ingredient powdered peanut butter.

If you want him to stop calling you, tell him point blank

Today: 5 p.m.: Miami Valley Events Calendar 8 p.m.: Have History Will Travel 11 p.m.: Tales of the Strange

Dear Annie: I'm dating a guy who works out of town and is home every four weeks. "Jake" calls and texts often and says he misses me all the time. Here's what bothers me: Jake always asks me how I feel about him. He says, "Do you even like me?" I think it's because I don't drop everything when he calls like the other women he has dated. I recently found out via Facebook that Jake went on a cruise with a woman he used to live with. She has been posting pictures of the cruise and saying how much she loves Jake. There is nothing about the cruise posted on Jake's page. I told him about her comments. He replied that he didn't know anything about it, and she was obviously just thanking all of the people on the cruise for their love and support. But he added that she's a wonderful woman and they'd be in a relationship if she lived closer. I said he is being unfair to both of us, but he claims he's not married and will continue to call me until I tell him to stop. Since then, he's phoned a couple of times, and I refuse to take his calls. Is this a case of wanting to have your cake and eat it, too? — Daisy Mae Dear Daisy: It sounds like it, although as a single man, he can date as many women as he likes until he makes a commitment. You thought he had made one to you, but he believed otherwise. It's possible he was attracted to you because you didn't fawn all over him. But that results in a stable relationship only in the movies. In real life, such men thrive on the attention, and since they rarely get enough of it from one partner, they look for it in many others. Right now, he thinks you'll cave. If you want him to stop calling, you will have to tell him point blank. Dear Annie: I am the youngest of 10 siblings. Every summer, we share a lake house for a wonderful family reunion that extends over several days. Every year, my older brother invites an obnoxious friend to join us for the last evening's family grill. How can I convince him that just because we are part owners doesn't mean we can invite unwanted guests? He says it is his home and he can invite whomever he wishes. I say if he is not cooking the meal, it is not proper. The chef dislikes this guy as much as I do. Who is right? — The Baby of the Family Dear Baby: As joint owners, you should each be able to invite guests. However, since you are all staying in the house together, it is both considerate and proper to first ask the other residents whether they object to additional company. So while your brother can invite his friend when he uses the lake house on his own, he should ask the rest of you about inviting him when you are sharing the house and the meals. Dear Annie: I am concerned about your response to "Trying" which said it was OK to tell Mom that some of the grandchildren are hurt because they aren't receiving as much gift money as others. I think this encourages a sense of entitlement. Instead of trying to correct Mom's behavior, I would encourage "Trying" to stop comparing gifts and value Mom's intention to add joy to the lives of all of her family members. — Mike in Schenectady, N.Y. Dear Mike: We disagree. The only entitlement it encourages is that Grandma should treat her grandchildren equally. If all the kids received a lesser gift, it would be fair, and the kids wouldn't get the impression that Grandma loves some of them more than others. And we think Grandma should know this.

HINTS FROM HELOISE

Soda-can pull tabs help pay the bill for charity Dear Heloise: The Ronald McDonald House of Amarillo, Texas, wants to say a big “Thank you” for your column regarding soda-can pull tabs. We use the money that we receive from the sale of these tabs to buy gas cards and gift cards to large retail stores in order to assist families who are having difficulty paying for medications. We accept any amount of tabs from individuals, schools and church groups. Thanks once again! — DeAnn Dunnihoo, administrative assistant, Amarillo, Texas DeAnn, thank you for all you do and for everyone who

Hints from Heloise Columnist helps with the Ronald McDonald House Charities, and for making my readers aware of how the donations you receive are used! — Heloise LITTER-TRAINING FERRETS Dear Heloise: I just got my first pet ferret! The pet-

store employee told me that ferrets will use a litter box. How do I litter-train my ferret? — Zach H. in Maryland Since I’ve had three of these lovable scamps, I’ve learned that ferrets are smart, which makes training easy! Since ferrets back into corners to “do their business,” provide a triangular litter pan with a high back and enough space to fit all four paws in. Fill the pan with Unscented litter. Litter with a strong smell or a lot of dust particles can

cause harm to a ferret’s lungs. Avoid any wood-chip, clay or corncob litters. Pellets, pearls and select clumping mixes are the best. Ferrets will find their litter pan by scent. Place used pieces of litter in the box until they are familiar with using it. Before getting your ferret from the cage, always make sure it uses the litter box. It will learn to go before playing with you, lowering the chances of accidents outside the cage. Be patient and loving, and soon you’ll have a welltrained ferret! — Heloise

HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Friday, Nov. 2, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a willy-nilly, loosey-goosey day, which is why shortages, interruptions and goofy mistakes are par for the course. Nevertheless, you’ll enjoy talking to others. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a poor day for important financial negotiations. Don’t spend money on anything except food. Don’t sign important documents. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) In a way, this is a pleasant day for you; although, you might feel disoriented. Don’t agree to deadlines or make promises to anyone. Don’t initiate anything. (Just tread water.) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Keep to your routine tasks today and expect minor interruptions and shortages. You might want to change your mind about something. If so, wait until tomorrow to see if this is really what you want. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Enjoy good times with female acquaintances today. Laugh it up, and keep things light. Don’t agree to anything important. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) People in authority will notice you today — ideally, for something positive. (You hope.) Just be aware of this. Do not agree to anything important, and do not agree to set deadlines. Listen to others and make up your mind tomorrow. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You’ll be delighted if you can do something different today, because you don’t want to be bored. Therefore, break with your normal routine. Shake it up a little! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a poor day for important financial negotiations regarding inheritances, wills, estates or signing anything about shared property or debt. Delay these actions until tomorrow. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Because there is a goofy element in the air today, you’ll enjoy lighthearted exchanges with partners and friends. However, avoid important commitments or agreements. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a mildly frustrating day at work. Shortages, misunderstandings and delays will really impact your efficiency and productivity. Just be patient. Lower your expectations. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is a wonderfully creative day for you! It’s easy to put a new spin on things or see them in a new light. Enjoy romantic liaisons, sports and playful times with children. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is a lovely day to day to veg out at home and just relax. Entertain at home if you can. Do not sign real-estate deals today. YOU BORN TODAY Many of you undergo great change and transformation in your lives. Whether you seek to or not, you often have influence over others. In your personal life or your vocation, you are often very focused on money, power and sex. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will diminish or end to make room for something new. Birthdate of: k.d. Lang, musician, Marie Antoinette, Queen of France; David Schwimmer, actor. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Afghans set presidential poll date KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghans will elect a new president in the spring of 2014 in a ballot considered crucial for their country’s stability and security after more than 11 years of war. Afghan politicians and the country’s foreign backers hailed Wednesday’s announcement as a step toward a peaceful transition of power. The Taliban, who could make or break the poll, denounced it as meaningless and vowed to keep on fighting. The government-appointed Independent Electoral Commission set polling day as April 5, 2014, the same year that most troops in the U.S.-led NATO coalition will have left in a withdrawal that has already begun. The date is in line with the Afghan constitution adopted after the coalition ousted the Taliban in 2001. But the Taliban claimed the vote was an American ploy. “These are not elections, they are selections,” said spokesman Qari Youssof Ahmadi. “The U.S. wants to select those people it wants and who will work for the purpose of the enemy. The Afghans know the country is

But they have vowed to keep fighting. Still, despite their rheto-

ric, it remains unclear what the insurgents will do ahead of the elections. Prospects appear bleak. Peace talks are stalled and the Taliban show no signs of relenting in their fight. During Karzai’s decade in office they have never recognized him as president and consider him an American

puppet. The 2009 poll that gave Karzai a second term were marred by allegations of massive fraud and vote-rigging, while violence and intimidation in the Taliban-dominated east and south helped limit overall turnout to 33 percent, and more than one million of the 5.5 million

votes cast were ruled invalid. The constitution limits Karzai to two terms, and he has said he will not try for a third. But Afghans generally consider his government to be corrupt and to have favored his political allies and members of his family, and although many of the allegations have not been proven, there are concerns he might seek a way to remain in power or appoint a family member to run as a proxy in the 2014 election. Although no one has openly declared a candidacy, possible contenders mentioned so far are mostly members of the former Northern Alliance, which ousted the Taliban after the American invasion in late 2001. They include former Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah, who lost to Karzai in 2009, and Quayum Karzai, one of the president’s brothers. The International Crisis Group, an independent think tank, warned this month of a “precipitous slide toward state collapse” unless steps are taken soon to prevent a repeat of the “chaos and chicanery” of the 2009 election. “Plagued by factionalism and corruption, Afghanistan

is far from ready to assume responsibility for security when U.S. and NATO forces withdraw in 2014,” the Brussels-based group said. U.S. Ambassador James Cunningham said the election date represented “more than a day on a calendar. It is symbolic of the aspiration of Afghans for elections which will be crucial for Afghanistan’s future stability. This will be an Afghan process, with the U.S. and the international community prepared to provide support and encouragement to millions of Afghans who, on April 5, 2014, will make their mark on history with a peaceful transition of political authority.” In Brussels, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen called it a “historic opportunity.” Free and fair elections are also a key condition for delivering more than $16 billion in aid that was pledged at an international donor conference last May. Provincial elections will be held on the same day as the presidential poll, and parliamentary elections will follow in 2015, said Fazel Ahmad Manawai, the election commission’s chief.

Romney campaign challenges criticism by automakers TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Mitt Romney came under withering criticism Wednesday over his depiction of President Barack Obama’s auto industry bailout, with Vice President Joe Biden accusing him of perpetuating an “outrageous lie” and newspapers assailing the Republican’s advertising campaign on the subject. Chrysler and General Motors also have protested the ads, as the 2009 bailout was pushed to the forefront of the White House campaign in a key battleground just days before Tuesday’s election. “They’re trying to scare the living devil out of a group of people who have been hurt so badly over the last previous four years before we came to office,” Biden told voters in Florida, labeling the Romney

commercials “one of the most flagrantly dishonest ads I can ever remember in my political career.” Countering Biden, Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, one of 32 House Republicans to vote for the auto bailout, said in a statement released by Romney’s campaign: “GM and Chrysler are expanding their production overseas. These are facts that voters deserve to know as they listen to the claims President Obama and his campaign are making.” Romney’s campaign insists the ads are accurate. The TV ad says: “Obama took GM and Chrysler into bankruptcy and sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China.” And the radio ad says: “Under President Obama, GM cut 15,000

American jobs, but they are planning to double the number of cars built in China, which means 15,000 more jobs for China. And now comes word that Chrysler is starting to build cars in, you guessed it, China. What happened to the promises made to autoworkers in Toledo and throughout Ohio? “ The claims are highly misleading. In fact, Chrysler is adding 1,100 jobs to its plant in Toledo. It’s also adding production facilities in China as demand for cars there grows. Because of trade rules, it’s easier for companies to build cars for the Chinese market in China. It’s also more efficient. Japanese automakers, for example, have plants in the U.S. to meet American demand. For much of the race, Romney had been carefully avoiding raising

the auto issue; aides say he was reluctant to give Obama’s campaign a bigger opportunity to remind voters about the bailouts. But advisers say that thinking has changed as Romney has looked for traction in Ohio in the race’s final days. Last week, Romney himself suggested on the campaign trail that U.S. auto giants were moving jobs to China at the expense of Ohio, citing a Bloomberg News report that said Chrysler would move jobs to China. “I saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state Jeep, now owned by the Italians is thinking of moving all production to China,” Romney said Oct. 25 in Defiance, Ohio. He hasn’t repeated that claim since then. His spokeswoman, Andrea Saul, said Wednesday that Romney was

relying on an inaccurate report from Bloomberg News, and that Bloomberg had updated its story to indicate that while Chrysler did plan to manufacture all types of its cars in China, it was expanding into the Asian country, not moving its operations there. The original story, headlined “Fiat Says China May Build All Jeeps as SUV Demand Increases,” appeared four days before Romney made his remarks. Bloomberg did add a clarifying sentence; the update appeared Oct. 22, three days before Romney referenced it. Bloomberg, in a statement to The Associated Press, said neither the original story nor the update was inaccurate. “We stand by our reporting,” spokeswoman Meghan Womack said.

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

WEST MILTON

The year was 2007, and Mitchell Evans — the dynamic quarterback that led Milton-Union to a division title and a pair of postseason victories the year before — was a thing of the past for the Bulldogs, having graduated and gone on to continue his career at Indiana University. The Bulldogs, however, went on to win

another division title, reach the playoffs once again — and even won their firstround game. Fast-forward to this season. After the graduation of last year’s leading rusher Jake Finfrock, Milton-Union was not expected by some to challenge for the STAFF PHOTO/ANTHONY WEBER Southwestern Buckeye League Buckeye Milton-Union’s Tyler Brown runs the ball dur-

Lehman’s Ellie Waldsmith goes down for a dig against Ft. Loramie Wednesday in Vandalia.

Lehman falls to Loramie BY ROB KISER Sports Editor rkiser@dailycall.com VANDALIA — The Lehman volleyball team has had some amazing comebacks for wins at the D-IV regional volleyball tournament. But Fort Loramie wasn’t about to let that happen Thursday night at the Vandalia Student Activities Center, finishing off a convincing 25-17, 25-22, 25-14 win over the Cavaliers. The Redskins will play Marion Local for the regional title at 2 p.m. Saturday. “That’s one of the things we talked about at the start of the third game,” Fort Loramie coach John Rodgers said. “That Lehman is not a team that is

Lewis calls out Dalton, Maualuga Bengals coach Marvin Lewis publicly challenged quarterback Andy Dalton and middle linebacker Rey Maualuga on Wednesday to become more forceful leaders on their 3-4 team. The move was out of character for Lewis, who prefers to handle things quietly and internally. It underscored the Bengals’ predicament approaching the season’s midpoint it’s time to start winning or else.

It was the final match for four-year starters Andrea Thobe and Ellie Waldsmith. “I thought we had a lot of positives this season,” Lehman coach Greg Snipes said. “We just made some mistakes tonight that are very untypical and Fort Loramie played a great match.

Devils battle Turpin BY JAMES FREEMAN Staff Intern Going into the matchup against Tecumseh on October 12th, Tippecanoe was riding high and looking at towards the possibility of hosting a playoff game.

Last year, the Red Devils faced off against Turpin in a home playoff game and lost 24-21. “We don’t worry a lot about the matchup,” Burgbacher said.

Devils ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 “The familiarity is there. They run a lot of formations, a lot passes and there is a lot to prepare for. But in reality they do on or two things really well.” Tippecanoe looked like one of the dominant teams in the area the first seven weeks — averaging 46.3 points per game and only giving up 7.7. The last

three weeks were a diffrent story as their scoring plummeted to 21 points per game. That was never more evident that last week when they lost to Springfield Shawnee 20-14. “Last week we were inconsistent,” Burgbacher said. “We have made a lot of uncharacteristic turnovers and that was something we hadn’t done

the first seven games.” Tippecanoe only had three turnovers in the first seven games of the year. They have had two in the last three weeks. Also over the last three weeks, Tippecanoe is only averaging 281.3 yards per game. During the first seven weeks of the season, the Red Devils were averaging 451.1 yards per game.

The Red Devils feel as if they will be able to correct those inconsistencies by the time Friday rolls around. “We aren’t going to make any excuses, but we are healthy now,” Burgbacher said. “We went through a stretch where we were missing three key people. It wasn’t evident to people how important they were.”

They are going to need contributions from everyone — especially from Jacob Hall and Cameron Johnson — to go into Turpin and pull off the upset. The Spartans are winning games by an average of 22.1 points — their closest game being a 17-14 victory at Division I Withrow. Hall and Johnson have been carrying the load for

the Red Devils’ offense with Hall racking up 25 touchdowns on 1,570 yards and Johnson adding 11 touchdowns on 992 yards. Friday marks the start of a new season for Tippecanoe. If they can play the next five games like they did the first seven, the Red Devils will completely forget their last three weeks.

Troy’s Branden Nosker throws his hands up after finishing in 12th at the Division I Regional race last Saturday in Troy.

State XC ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 close in years past. “If I could (win a state title), that would be the cherry on top of the season,” Wharton said following his win at regional. “I’m undefeated so far for the season. I know there’s going to be some tough competition there. I’m excited. I’m ready to go.” And Wharton won’t be alone this time around. The Red Devils team will be along for the ride as they earned a state berth by finishing fourth overall at regional. Tipp edged Lakota East by three points for the final spot. Ricky Andrews and Grant Koch have been strong second and third runners all season for the team, and they proved to be the difference-makers again at regional as both finished with times under 16:40. Koch passed several runners in the second half of the race to place 26th, while Andrews finished 33rd. Oscar Freyre (17:02.82), Mitch Poynter (17:20.73), Michael Taylor (17:31.57) and Jay Schairbaum (17:37.71) rounded out Tipp’s finishers in Troy. The Red Devils made the transition to Division I just last season, making to regional and finishing well back as a team against one of the best fields in the state. This season, though, the team brought back several of those same runners including seniors Koch and Andrews. Tipp coach Byron Kimmel said after last Saturday’s regional meet that the transition to Division I was a ‘big jump’ due to the fact that Tipp was just four boys over the limit when it happened. So just consider Tippecanoe the ‘Hoosiers’ of the large school division when step on the course Saturday at 12:30 p.m. Tippecanoe’s Allison Sinning — who placed fifth overall in the Division II girls race last Saturday at regional — runs at 2:15 p.m. Saturday in Hebron. • Nosker They say hard work beats talent. Troy’s Branden Nosker is living proof. In just a year span, Nosker went from finishing 83rd in the region to

12th at last Saturday’s Division I Regional race in Troy, coming in with his best time of the year (16:11.68) on the biggest stage of the year. “I think just between last fall and this year, he realized that he wanted to be successful as a cross country runner and a track distance runner,” Troy coach Bob Campbell said. “But to do that, you can’t just run or want to be apart of the team, you have to train. There’s a difference between the two. You’re not going to get where you want to be if you don’t train the way you need. “It paid off. He ran and trained through the winter. He had a great track season last year. He finished seventh at regional in the 3,200 and he ran in the mid-9:40’s range. We always knew the talent was there, he just had to put the work in. But it really started last winter and he put the miles in during the summer, and it paid off.” Not only did it pay off for Nosker, it also allowed coach Campbell to make his first trip to state in six years. The last qualifier from Troy was Jake Enke. The key for Nosker last Saturday was staying with the lead pack for the first couple miles of the race. From there, it came down to believing in himself and finishing strong. “He got himself up there and felt good,” Cambell said. “He was five-flat at the mile mark, his second mile was 5:15, then his third was 5:25. From half mile on, he just kept nice steady pace, and got himself up there with guys he knew was going to be up there in the end. Once he got up there, there was no way he was going to let that go. When you have that opportunity, you’ve got to grab it when you can.” Nosker runs at 12:30 p.m. Saturday in Hebron. Lehman’s Joe Fuller will also compete in the Division III boys race Saturday. Fuller placed fourth at regional last weekend to earn his first trip to the state meet. The Division III race starts at 11 a.m.

DENVER (AP) — Peyton Manning’s right thumbnail was covered with white tape and put under a media microscope upon his return to the football field Wednesday. The tape didn’t wrap all the way around his thumb, leaving him able to grip the football like normal, and teammates said his throws and hand-offs at practice were unaffected by his injury in his first action since smacking his throwing hand on a defender’s helmet Sunday night. For the first time, Denver coach John Fox listed his quarterback on the team’s injury report — “Peyton Manning, right thumb, full” — but said he noticed no lingering effects. Manning, who threw two second-half touchdowns in Denver’s 34-14 win over New Orleans after getting hurt just before halftime, said after practice that his thumb was “sore, but it’s more of an irritant than anything else.” Manning gets all this scrutiny. After all, he missed all of last season in Indianapolis with a nerve injury in his neck and now plays in a city that 24 years ago argued about the quality of Halloween candy handed out to trick-ortreaters by a young John Elway. Now, the discolored right thumbnail on the four-time MVP who’s playing like he’s hungry for a fifth is certainly a big deal in media circles, both traditional and social. Manning acknowledged he was “probably a little bit lucky” that he banged the nail and not the knuckle of his right thumb on New Orleans defensive end Martez Wilson’s helmet just before absorbing his only hit of the night. Another half-inch, and all bets would have been off for the rolling Broncos (4-3), who lead the AFC West, are finally hitting their stride behind Manning’s spectacular play and steady leadership and look every bit like a

Another half-inch and this is rookie Brock Osweiler’s offense. Or Caleb Hanie’s. “They say it’s a game of inches,” wide receiver Eric Decker said. “Maybe it’s a game of centimeters.” The league’s leading passer at age 36, Manning is playing better than anyone — the Broncos and their quarterback included — could have hoped for over the season’s first two months. “Well, certainly, it was a lot of unknown before this season,” Manning said. “I think there still is. This is a new team and nobody knew how this team would

form chemistry-wise. I didn’t know what my situation would be. I mentioned early on that I’m feeling my way out. We’re finding out our identity. I think we are still doing that. I think we have it in some places.” Even though they’re not all the way there yet, Elway, the Broncos’ vice president of football operations, said during his weekly podcast on the team’s website that Denver is coming off its “most complete game of the year.” “We thought it was going to be a track meet and we’d really have to keep up with them,” Elway said. “The compliment goes

to (defensive coordinator) Jack Del Rio, his staff and the defensive players. They really answered the bell.” Drew Brees was limited to 137 yards through the air until the Saints’ final drive, when he threw for 76 yards with several Broncos backups in the game. Weakside linebacker Wesley Woodyard, an undrafted fifth-year pro from Kentucky, won AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors Wednesday for a monster game that included 13 tackles (9 solo), a sack, an interception, two pass breakups and a forced fumble — exceeding or matching his career high in every category.

to avenge both of last year’s losses with a clutch fourth-quarter performance against the Spartans, wrapped up a share of the Buckeye title with an easy win over Northridge in Week 10 and earned the No. 7 seed, earning the right to face No. 2 Williamsport Westfall, which went 9-1 in the regular season. The Mustangs have reached the playoffs both of their seasons in D-IV Region 16, losing to Chaminade Julienne last year. Even though they were the No. 4 seed and hosted a game last season, the Eagles obliterated them 63-13. This season, Westfall enters the postseason on a nine-game winning streak, its only loss coming in Week 1, 49-27 to Teays Valley. The Mustangs average 34.6 points per game thanks to

their do-it-all quarterback. “They throw the ball an awful lot,” Pearce said. “Their quarterback has about 1,900 yards passing and another 700 rushing. They run a 4-3 defense, play in the Scioto Valley Conference and are a pretty good ballclub. And that class last year that lost to CJ in the first round is one that had a lot of juniors that probably learned a lot from that game and are coming back hungry this year.” Which sounds a lot like the Bulldogs. “The fact that we lost in the first round last year (is good motivation),” Pearce said. “We have 19 seniors that learned from last year. They worked hard in the offseason, had a great regular season and don’t want to get bounced in the first round.”

Bulldogs ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 Division title — which they lost to Waynesville last season — or get back to the playoffs, where they were knocked out in the first round by those same Spartans. No one expected it … except the Bulldogs. “It just worked out that way,” Milton-Union coach Bret Pearce said of his 8-2 Bulldogs, who earned a share of the SWBL Buckeye crown and will travel to Westfall Friday night for a Division IV Region 16 first-round playoff game against the Mustangs. “Our kids just continue to prove themselves. “It just shows that our program has built itself to where we’re more than just one player, and even when we do have a great player like Mitchell or Jake were, that we have kids all around them that

play well, also.” The turning point for this year’s Milton-Union team came between Weeks 8 and 9. After a one-point loss to Dixie in Week 8 ensured that the best the Bulldogs could do would be to share the division title, they needed a win against rival Waynesville to remain in line for a share of it. “Luckily for us, the game after the Dixie game was Waynesville – which was the team that motivated us all year,” Pearce said. “Before the season, the kids said if we go 1-9 we want to make sure the team we beat is Waynesville. It wasn’t that difficult to get them refocused. “Besides, this is a great group. They try to learn from every win and every loss. It’s easy to get them on task.” The Bulldogs went on

Cavaliers ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 girls can learn from them and see how the hard work pays off.” In the opening set, Loramie was leading 7-5 when Loramie had a fivepoint run with Julie Hoying at the service line. Rose had two kills in the run and suddenly the Lady Redskins were up 12-5. “Normally, we don’t give up any runs,” Lehman coach Greg Snipes said.

“And tonight, it seemed like Fort Loramie was able to put together a number of big runs.” Lehman could never get closer than three with, Rose and Turner leading the hitters, the Redskins pulled away for a 25-17 win. “One of the things we talked about was playing our game — not worrying about what Lehman was doing,” Rodgers said. “We

weren’t so concerned about who was hitting the ball for us, we just wanted to make sure we played our game.” In the the second game, the two teams battled evenly throughout. Kills by Olivia Slagle and Erica Paulus (on Ava Schmitz’ serve) pulled Lehman within 23-22. But a serve sailed long and Lehman was unable to return Loramie’s serve at game point.

“We had a lot of errors tonight,” Snipes said. “Those are mistakes we just don’t typically make.” Another service run by Hoying, finished with an ace, gave Loramie an 11-5 lead and Lehman could never get closer than four. “We played alright the first couple points, then they had some big runs,” Snipes said. “You can’t expect to come back from way down against a team

like Fort Loramie.” Turner and Rose both pounded 12 kills to lead the Lady Redskin hitters. “You know, Kelly (Turner) didn’t even get on our all-conference team,” Rodgers said. “I guess that’s what happens when you beat people — they don’t vote for you. I thought they both had big matches for us tonight.” Hoying dished out 29 assists and served three

aces, while Danielle Wehrman had nine digs. Thobe had seven kills and seven digs for Lehman, while Waldsmith added seven kills. Slagle had five kills and two blocks, Paulus had three kills and Ellie Cain dished out 11 assists. “We just never got any offense going,” Snipes said. “It just seemed like we were on the defensive all night.”

Lewis’ challenge

Dominant ‘D’ a way of life at Alabama, LSU

Bengals coach calls out Dalton, Maualuga CINCINNATI (AP) — Bengals coach Marvin Lewis publicly challenged quarterback Andy Dalton and middle linebacker Rey Maualuga on Wednesday to become more forceful leaders on their 3-4 team. The move was out of character for Lewis, who prefers to handle things quietly and internally. It underscored the Bengals’ predicament approaching the season’s midpoint it’s time to start winning or else. “We’ve wallowed around here in mediocrity,” Lewis said. “Let’s go. That’s the thing we’ve got to do.” Cincinnati has lost three in a row heading into home games against the Denver Broncos (4-3) and the Super Bowl champion New York Giants (6-2). The Bengals went 9-7 and got a wild card berth last season, when Dalton was a rookie and Maualuga was in his first season at middle linebacker. With this season starting to slip away, Lewis challenged the two young players Maualuga is in his fourth season overall to step up. “We’re looking for our quarterback and our middle linebacker to take hold of our football team, and I think that’s important for us,” Lewis said. “I think both guys are such good people, that you’ve got to be a little bit of a (jerk). You do. “Andy has a great deal of confidence, self-confidence, internal confidence, confidence in the guys around him. But at some point you step out of your skin and you go. And it’s time to go.” Lewis’ comments weren’t off-the-cuff.

I get things riled up, the more people will buy into it and the more we can get things started and get going. I love the opportunity and the challenge, so I’ll give it everything I’ve got.” Dalton was reluctant to assume a leadership role last season, when he was a rookie learning the offense as he went along. He left it up to other veterans to take charge, concentrating on what he had to do to learn the position. Lewis wants Dalton to start taking a bigger role in

making sure everyone on the offense is doing things correctly. “The natural progression of it,” Dalton said. “As a rookie, you come in and you are meeting new people. Now, second year, it is your offense. It is your team. That is how I’ve got to treat it. “He just wants some fire out there, making sure we are perfect in practice in everything we are doing. I am not too worried about what he said. It’s just he expects a lot out of us.”

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — When Eric Reid arrived at LSU, the older players made one thing clear: He was expected to contribute right away on defense. There was to be no drop-off from the guys who came before him. Now, he passes it on. “We tell the freshmen the exact same thing,” said Reid, a junior safety and one of the leaders of the Tigers’ defense. “We don’t want them to use youth as an excuse. You come to practice, practice hard and get the job done.” The same could be said of top-ranked Alabama. After last season, the Crimson Tide had six players off its national championship defense considered one of the best in college football history selected in the NFL draft. Three of them went in the first round. Another was taken early in the second. For most programs, that sort of exodus would have led to a major rebuilding job. Not at Alabama (8-0, 50 Southeastern Conference), which again leads the nation in all four of the major defensive categories, seemingly just as dominant as it was with players such as Mark Barron, Dont’a Hightower and Dre Kirkpatrick. “I’m not really surprised,” said one of the replacements, linebacker C.J. Mosley. “Great players left last year, but we had players that could fill their roles. So far, we’re getting the job done. It’s all about communication because we’ve got the athletes and we’ve got the players who can play with anybody in the nation.” Defense isn’t just a vital part of the game for these two schools. It’s who they are. It’s why they seem to meet every year with so much on the line. This year is no exception. Alabama will travel to Baton Rouge on Saturday night for what is essentially a playoff game in the

national championship race. The winner will have the inside track to a spot in the SEC title game, which has become a routine conduit to the BCS finale. Despite plenty of inconsistency on offense, LSU (71, 3-1) is right in the thick of things again largely because of its defense. While not quite as dominant statistically as Alabama, the Tigers are certainly in the same ballpark, ranking in the top 10 nationally in points allowed, total yards, rushing yards and passing yards. “It’s a tradition that was established long before we got here,” said LSU linebacker Kevin Minter, the team’s leading tackler. “It’s fundamental here. It’s what we do. We play hard-nosed, hit-you-in-the-mouth defense. Both teams do.” Like Alabama, LSU lost a number of top defensive players off last year’s unit, which carried the Tigers all the way to the national championship game before they lost to the Crimson Tide 21-0. Cornerback Morris Claiborne and defensive tackle Michael Brockers were both selected in the first round of the NFL draft, while safety Brandon Taylor went in the third. Then, the Tigers lost perhaps their most dominant player on either side of the line, cornerback and Heisman finalist Tyrann Mathieu. The Honey Badger was reportedly kicked off the team for several failed drug tests, and he’s spending the year away from the field, trying to get his life in order. Despite those heavy losses, especially in the secondary, there hasn’t been much of a slide. LSU ranks fourth in the nation, allowing just 148.5 yards per game through the air. Tharold Simon and freshman Jalen Mills have filled those big shoes at cornerback, each coming up with a pair of interceptions. LSU ranks eighth nationally with 13 picks as team.

Browns Weeden learning on the fly BEREA (AP) — Brandon Weeden had his trigger finger ready. While relaxing at home Tuesday night, Cleveland’s rookie quarterback was reviewing the Sept. 27 game against Baltimore on his iPad when he came to that fateful moment in the third quarter. With the Browns trailing just 16-10 and driving for a potential go-ahead touchdown, Weeden hung a thirddown pass toward the sideline for wide receiver Travis Benjamin. The throw was intercepted by cornerback Cary Williams, who returned it 63 yards for a touchdown. “I fast forwarded right through it,” Weeden said. “Didn’t watch it.” He’s not hiding his eyes as often these days.

rematch with the Ravens (52) bursting with confidence. After throwing four interceptions in his NFL debut against Philadelphia, Weeden has been picked off six times in his past seven games, and he hasn’t thrown an interception in his past two. It’s another sign of growth for Weeden, who has had to learn the hard way it’s better to live another down than die trying to be a hero. “You can not turn the ball over,” he said Wednesday, repeating what he’s been hearing from Cleveland’s coaches for weeks. “You’ve got to be smart with the football.” Weeden’s decision making has gotten better each week, and it’s one of the biggest reasons the Browns (2-6) have won two of three heading into the AFC North game with Baltimore. In a division loaded with quality

quarterbacks, Ravens coach John Harbaugh believes Weeden, just eight games into his pro career, can hold his own with Baltimore’s Joe Flacco, Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger and Cincinnati’s Andy Dalton, who led their teams to the playoffs last season. “I’m very impressed with him,” Harbaugh said. “You look at this division, there are four really good quarterbacks and that makes it a tough division. He’s done a nice job of really incorporating himself into what they’re trying to do offensively. It looks like he’s really smart, he’s got a nice arm and he’s got good poise back there. “He’s got a really good feel for the rush and getting the ball out and those kind of things. One of the main things for a young guy is just not turning the ball over much, and he’s done a good job with that.”

Weeden’s numbers back that up. He’s only thrown one interception in the past three games, and the Browns have gone 2-1, beating Cincinnati and San Diego at home. While he’s flattered that Harbaugh would place him in the same elite company as the other QBs in his division, Weeden isn’t sure he deserves that kind of high praise just yet. “I don’t know if I’m there yet,” he said. “I think he’s giving me a little too much. I’ve got to win some more games and I need to do some better things to help this team out before I get there. But you know, from a confidence standpoint, I feel like I’m making some strides in the right direction. But for him to say that, I’m very appreciative. That’s saying a lot considering how good these other quarterbacks are.”
