Recipe offers sweet taste The traditional flavors of a delicious Italian lasagna — creamy ricotta blended with savory herbs — are wonderfully balanced by harvest fruits and vegetables, including thinly sliced butternut squash and apples. The result is a deliciously sweet and savory main course perfect for a vegetarian Thanksgiving. For ease, the lasagna can be fully assembled then refrigerated a day in advance.

Current city of Troy Auditor John Stickel, a Republican, faces off against Libertarian Party challenger Mike Burkholder in the race for city of Troy auditor on Nov. 8. Stickel was appointed auditor in May, after former city auditor Richard Cultice resigned in April to take a seat as a Miami County the position. commissioner. Burkholder earlier this year cirStickel, 61, touts his education and nearly three decades experi- culated petitions for a run as a city ence in the financial industry, council candidate, but when his

TROY petitions were invalidated due to a technicality by the county elections board earlier this year, he shifted gears and filed to run in the auditor’s race. Burkholder said he took advantage of state law that allows third party candidates to file for elected positions, such as city auditor, after the cutoff date for Republicans and Democrats. He said his decision was sealed when he learned the city of Troy’s auditor’s position does not require a professional

CPA license. Burkholder, 69, became involved in Troy politics in 2004 when he unsuccessfully opposed the building of the Troy Aquatic Park across the street from his Road residence. Staunton “Unfortunately, I could not get it out of my system,” he said of the politics bug, noting he subsequently made an unsuccessful bid for city council in 2007. In 2008, Burkholder became involved with the Libertarian Party of Ohio and is a member of

Covington to host Coldwater Covington just finished off a second straight 10-0 regular season. And for the Buccs, who haven not lost a regular season since 2009, what is the reward? Moving up to Division V this season and hosting a 7-3 Coldwater team that has 41 playoff wins and advanced to the state title game a year ago. But Covington is embracing that opportunity. “They have a great football team,” Covington coach Dave Miller said. “There is no question about it. This is going to be a much different challenge for us. But, the kids are excited about the opportunity.”

Helping students in need Rotary donates backpacks to Heywood BY RON OSBURN Staff Writer


A dozen students at Heywood Elementary School will be getting needed school supplies this year thanks to a donation from the Troy Rotary Club. Rotary club president Jill Wilson and club member Patrick Titterington visited Haywood School principal Maurice Sadler on Wednesday to drop off a dozen new backpacks. The Rotary provided two backpacks — one for a boy, one for a girl — for each grade level at Heywood, kindergarten through fifth grade, and each pack was filled with school supplies from the Troy City Schools supply list. It’s the second year the Rotary has partnered with Heywood to provide backpacks filled with school supplies, said Titterington, who heads up the Rotary project and also is the city of

Troy service and safety director. Titterington said he and Sadler, both 2008 Leadership Troy graduates, had begun several years ago discussing ways Rotary could contribute to Heywood. “We at Rotary had been evaluating some of our past programs, discarding or refining some of them, and we had been talking about the kind of community support we could focus on,” Titterington said Wednesday inside Sadler’s office overlooking the intersection of South Ridge Avenue and McKaig Road. “We saw this (backpack) project as a way to get more connected to the school and the students.” Sadler welcomed the backpacks, noting that nearly 70 percent of Heywood’s students are from homes under the federal poverty level. He said students in need are provided backpacks and school supplies at the

beginning of the school year through donations from himself, Heywood teachers, Heywood support personnel, other parents and private donations from the Troy community. The dozen packs donated by the Rotary will be given to new students in need who come to Heywood over the next several months. “We take care of the students in need who are here at the beginning of the year. As new kids move in and are in need, we’ll be able to give them a bag,” said Sadler, “and the very next day they’ll be able to start learning, without having to worry about not having paper or not having pens.” Sadler, in his sixth year as principal at Heywood, said he’s particularly looking to help students who have parents or guardians who show gratitude and a certain initiative. “We’re specifically looking for families in need who show a willingness

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Air Force said Wednesday it plans to eliminate 9,000 civilian jobs in a cost-saving move, with more reductions to come later as part of a military-wide effort to adjust to a new era of defense spending cuts. “We clearly understand the turbulence these and future reductions will cause in the workforce,” Gen. Norton A. Schwartz, the Air Force chief of staff, said in an announcement that triggered criticism from members of Congress from states affected by the changes. Schwartz said the Air Force would try hard to achieve the job reductions through attrition and other management moves to avoid forced layoffs. After growing rapidly for a decade, the Pentagon budget is headed for substantial reductions. The Obama administration is committed to cuts of between $450 billion and $465 billion over the next 12 years and cuts approximately double that size could be imposed depending on the outcome of congressional budget negotiations. The Air Force did not spell out the full range of its planned job reductions but said a portion would come from a reorganization of the command that is its largest employer of civilians — the Air Force Materiel Command at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. That command’s restructuring is to be done by October 2012.

He touted his “extensive background in organizational finances from overall accounting and reporting to the minute gathering and analysis of information,” as some of his key qualifications for the auditor position. “I have studied local government and its relationship to the state and federal governments. I have studied economics; not only the Austrian School of Economics (free market economics) but Keynesian Economics as well. I have seen first-hand the failure of an attempt to

ongoing partnerships between the Troy Rotary Club and Heywood School, Wilson said. The club also partners on initiatives to provide shoes and winter coats for students in need, and participates as readers at Heywood’s annual birthday celebration for Dr. Seuss. “We try to reach out as much as we can,” Wilson said. The Troy Rotary Club meets every Tuesday at noon at the Troy Country Club.

Shoe donations to help others For the Troy Daily News Residents, with the help of Samantha Rousculp, are invited to recycle their “gently worn” shoes Nov. 4-6 at Tipp City’s Food Town in an effort to help distribute shoes to people in need. Soles4Souls Inc. has committed to collect and distribute shoes to people living in extreme poverty and recovering from natural disasters. The shoe charity provides one pair of shoes to a person in need every 7 seconds. Since 2005, Soles4Souls has distributed more than 16 million pairs of shoes because of the generosity and commitment of people and organizations like Samantha Rousculp. Soles4Souls believes partners like Samantha Rousculp will challenge others to become a force of change by helping the charity cater to the evolving needs of the global community. The shoe

In response to questions on a Troy Daily News canquestionnaire, didacy Burkholder was pointed in his answer when asked why he decided to run as auditor. “The primary aspect of the job of city auditor that appealed to me is that I would have a seat at the table at city council meetings and that I would be looking directly at Patrick Titterington,” he said, refer-

ring to Troy’s Service and Safety Director. Burkholder is a 1960 Troy Hight alum and graduated with a Business Administration degree from St. Edward’s University, Austin, Texas. He moved to Los Angeles where he worked 17 years at Continental Airlines in accounting and data processing, seven years at Northrop’s Electronics Division as a systems analyst, was a project manager at the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works. He said he completed his work career with a “bluecollar job” with the Service Authority for Freeway Emergencies.

He moved back to Troy in the late 1990s when his mother became ill. He is divorced with no children. Stickel is a 1972 graduate of the University of Dayton School of Business, majoring in Accounting.

Gina Grosso, the Air Force director of manpower, said officials are still working on details of how to reduce by a further 4,500 civilian jobs. “There is more work to be done,” to achieve savings, she said. The Utah congressional delegation sent a letter Wednesday to Air Force

Secretary Michael Donley to complain that the cutbacks could hurt Hill Air Force Base, Utah. They called the Air Force’s decision-making process “secretive and subjective” and complained that it left many questions unanswered. In the Air Force announcement at the Pentagon, Donley was quoted as saying he realized the decisions would be difficult for some to accept. “We can’t afford business as usual,” Donley said.

charity recognizes its success is the result of individuals and industry partners such as Samantha Rousculp who clean out closets and warehouses so that individuals around the world can have a better life through American’s excess. Every donation will support the charity’s initiative to distribute shoes to those in need. “With tragedies such as the earthquakes in countries like Haiti and Japan, on top of the enormous needs elsewhere, we can use the estimated 1.5 billion shoes taking up space in the closets of ordinary people to change the world one pair at a time,” said founder and CEO of Soles4Souls Wayne Elsey. Elsey added, “We need partners like Samantha Rousculp to get behind Soles4Souls. Donating shoes is one of the most simple yet profound acts you can do, because it will greatly improve someone’s life in the most difficult of times.” People and companies interested in donating can visit the organization’s website at

Public paychecks scrutinized in Ohio union fight COLUMBUS (AP) — Wildly conflicting estimates make it difficult to compare public and private pay in Ohio. Millions are flocking to new online salary tools to peek at the salaries of government-paid friends, neighbors and politicians. Bitter salary wars over how much public workers are paid, for what, and by whom are a key element in the

debate over a new collective bargaining law that faces a repeal effort Tuesday. The law limits the bargaining abilities of 350,000 police, firefighters, teachers and other government workers. Backers highlight how much taxpayers are paying in salary and benefits for state and local workers. Opponents emphasize Kasich’s $148,000 a year salary, raises awarded to state legislative staffers in the midst of state budget cuts, and the publicly funded compensation packages owed to lawmakers who backed the union limits.

tions official could create confusion this weekend about early voting and he should rescind it. Secretary of State Jon Husted issued the advisory to local boards last month, stating that changes to state law require voters who want to cast an early, in-person ballot to do so by 6 p.m. Friday. Democrats say the cutoff thwarts a ballot repeal effort against a separate election law that also ends early voting the Friday before Election Day. The deadline in previous elections has been Monday. Democrats want A Husted spokesman says Friday deadline is part of advisory recinded the a military voting law passed COLUMBUS — Demoby the Ohio Legislature, and cratic lawmakers say an it wouldn’t apply to service advisory from Ohio’s top elec- members.

A recent financial audit of Tipp City Schools by the Auditor of State Dave Yost’s office has returned a clean audit report. Tipp City Exempted Village Schools, excellent record keeping has earned the Auditor of State Award. “Clean and accurate record-keeping are the foundation for good government, and the taxpayers can take pride in your commitment to accountability,” Yost said. The Auditor of State Award is presented to local governments and school districts upon the completion of a financial audit. Entities that receive the award meet the following criteria of a “clean” audit report. • There must be a GAAP entity without a CAFR (Certified Annual Financial Report) that timely files its financial reports with the Auditor of State.

• The audit report does not contain any findings for recovery, material citations, material weaknesses, significant deficiencies, single audit findings or questioned costs. • The entity’s management letter contains no comments related to: ethics referrals, questioned costs less than $10,000, lack of timely report submission, reconciliation, failure to obtain a timely single audit, findings for recovery less than $100 and public meetings or public records. The Tipp City Exempted Village School District consists of five schools with an enrollment of 2700. The Tipp City School district includes the City of Tipp City and most of Monroe Township.

The home owner said they left at 12:30 p.m. and returned at 3 p.m. The suspect(s) stole jewelry in the master bedroom and took the owner’s Social Security card that was in the jewelry box. Woman home when jewelry and TV are stolen: A home was burglarized while a woman was in the basement in the 6000 block of South Iddings Road, West Milton. According to reports, a $1,000 TV and more than $5,800 in jewelry was stolen by suspects that entered an unlocked front door while a woman was in the basement. Test drive-off to Dayton: The owner of Shannon’s Used Cars, located at 5055 State Route 36, Piqua, reported that Sara Metcalf, of Troy, came in for a test drive of a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu and did not return the car. The owner saw that the car Metcalf left at the business also had dealer tags. Metcalf was located and said the car she had broke down in Dayton and was having a mechanic check it out. Officials also met with State Highway Patrol that reported the car being involved in a hit and skip incident on southbound I-75. Metcalf was charged with auto theft and

drug paraphernalia hidden on her person. Oct. 29 OVI drive-off: Officials received a call that a truck had struck a mailbox on State Route 55 near Casstown-Sidney Road. Officials followed a trail to 1690 CasstownSidney Road and located Logan Duran. After several questions and field sobriety tests, Duran was cited for OVI, failure to control and not stopping after an accident. Duran also submitted a breathalyzer test of 0.165 percent BAC. Renter removed property: The owner of 8515 Alcony-Conover Road reported that he was in a verbal agreement with Bryan Beller to purchase the property under land contract. Beller fell behind the rent payments and never received another payment. The owner gave notice to Beller that he was inspecting the property. Accompanied by a sheriff’s official, the owner found the property in poor condition, holes in the walls, carpet pulled up and walls painted by children. Items missing from the property include an aluminium ladder, dishwasher, air conditioner and the wood burning stove, valued at more than $2,400. The property was entered as a theft and efforts to locate Beller were unsuccessful. Mother charged with three counts of child endangering: Officials responded to a call when a man went to pick up his granddaughter and found the mother, Nicki Miller, 27, of Piqua, passed out on the couch. Miller said she had drank four beers and was defensive and belligerent. Officials found an electric radiator that was hot to the touch and accessible to three small children. One child was found to be chewing on a cigarette butt and another child was digging threw the trash. The home was in a state of disarray with Comet cleaner dumped on the floor. Miller was charged with three counts of child abuse and child endangering.

Question: Do you plan on voting next week? Watch for final poll results in

— First Amendment, U.S. Constitution

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Vindicator, Youngstown, Ohio, on restricting exotic animals: Terry Thompson, owner of the Muskingum County Animal Farm, may have once loved the animals he kept, but he surely knew he was condemning them to death when he set them free, just as he knew that he was endangering his neighbors and passers-by, young and old alike. Because of the danger that Thompson visited upon his community, the deaths of those animals fall on him, not the deputies who were forced to pull the trigger. Interviews with Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz and several of his deputies clearly showed that they were grieving over what they had to do. But responsibility must be shared as well by a Legislature that has historically — and not just in recent history — been reluctant to infringe on what some perceive as a right of private individuals to keep exotic and dangerous pets. The idea that the framers of the As I Constitution saw as inviolate the ability of private citizens to keep lions and tigers and bears See It (or alligators, pythons and asps) is, frankly, ■ The Troy bizarre.

The government decided on the review in response to requests from major beef exporters. The United States has been urging Japan to ease its restrictions on imports of American beef, while France has also called on Tokyo to drop its ban on French beef imports. But the government should have voluntarily re-examined the current measures from the viewpoint of whether they are really effective for ensuring food safety. Ten years have passed since Japan’s first case of the disease, also called bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), was discovered in September 2001. It is clearly time to re-evaluate the nation’s anti-BSE system for necessary changes based on new data and track records. Japan restricts U.S. beef imports to cattle aged 20 months or younger with the spine removed in line with the Japanese regulations. There have been growing calls for easing the restrictions in line with international guidelines. Since other countries imposed import restrictions on Japanese agricultural products following the nuclear accident, the Japanese government has been urging these countries to make scientifically sound responses to the situation. To reinforce this argument, Japan’s anti-BSE measures must be based solidly on sound science.

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

To the Editor: Wisconsin recently enacted a law that would curtail the collective bargaining powers of some public employees similar to Issue 5 in Ohio. The union officials and protesters predicted it would be a catastrophe. Now that the law has been in effect for a period of time there is early evidence that the law, for many school districts, has been a godsend rather than a disaster. The school district in my hometown has saved nearly $0.5 million according to friends of mine there. There are similar results in many school districts throughout the state. Here are the details, as an example, of one school district, as to how savings were achieved in the Kaukauna, Wisc. school district from an article in the Washington Examiner. The school has 4,200 students and 400 employees and this year faced a deficit of $400,000 until school officials put in new policies that will turn it into a $1.5 million surplus using the very provisions of the law union officials said would be disastrous. Teachers and staff will now pay 12.6 percent of health insurance coverage rather than 10 percent and they will contribute 5.8 percent of their salary to pensions rather than zero percent — both well below private sector employees. These changes saved $1.2 million this year. But the monetary part of the collective bargaining is not the whole issue and some of the improvement comes from new limits on collective bargaining. In the

past the collective bargaining agreement with the union required the school district to purchase health insurance from the WEA Trust — a company created by the Wisconsin Teachers Union. This year the WEA Trust had said there would be a significant increase in premiums. With the collective bargaining agreement gone, the school district went out for bids and the WEA Trust suddenly changed its position and said it would match the lowest bid. The school for now stayed with the WEA Trust but at substantial savings. No wonder why union leaders fought this law. Other changes include high school teachers have to teach six of the seven periods a day rather than the previous five periods and they have to be in school 40 hours a week rather than the previous 37.5. Teachers’ salaries will stay relatively the same with top salary around $80,000 a year and $35,000 in additional benefits for 184 days of work, summers off. With the changes, class sizes in high school have been reduced from 31 per class to 26 and from 26 students to 23 students in the elementary school, a win for the students as well. The money saved will be used to hire a few more teachers and institute merit pay. These are the facts of how it is working where it is implemented rather than the scare tactics being advertised by public union officials. At Kaukauna, the taxpayer, students and teachers all win with the changes as a result of the law. I fully support the efforts of our schools, teachers and other public employees but believe salaries and benefits have to be kept in line with those of the taxpayer who is

supporting them. As a show of that support, I also urge all Miami East school district residents to vote YES on the 1.75 percent Earned Income Levy to maintain the high quality of academic and extracurricular programs being provided by the Miami East Schools as well as voting YES on Issue 2. — Gerald Thorstad Troy

Vote no on Miami East levy To the Editor: Miami East Schools, what are you doing with the extra income you are already getting? Our Current Agricultural Use Valuation (CAUV) has been substantially increased for the next five years, and our farm property real estate taxes were increased by 70 percent in January, 2011. The bulk of this money went to the schools. Under the proposed new “earned” income tax, I found out that cropland rental income would be taxed as earned income. I spoke with Superintendent Todd Rappold, who confirmed this to be true. That cropland rental is our pension income! We have been full-time farmers for 40 years. I would urge you to vote no on the Miami East request to increase school taxes. Maybe its time control of the schools was not in the hands of local school officials. Although, knowing they have chosen not to inform the voting public of the increased amount of tax revenue they are already getting, I doubt that would happen.

How I got fat and happy watching football I’d like to thank the Troy football team for many things they’ve provided me with this season. The endless memories. The countless compelling stories. The fun times. And the extra 30 pounds I’ve gained in the past four months. Yes, that is correct — since football season started Aug. 1, I’ve gained 30 pounds. And the Troy football team is to blame. How you ask? Pretty simple, really. For starters, there’s the pressbox food I’ve been eating the past 10 weeks. Most pressboxes I’ve visited during football season have provided my two favorite types of food — those being “free” and “unlimited.” From the wings at Beavercreek to the brownies at Fairborn to the pizza at Sidney — I’ve engaged in every sort of gastronomical horror you can imagine. It doesn’t get any better when the games end, either. Typically speaking, on football Friday nights, I leave the

David Fong Troy Daily News Executive Editor office well after midnight. Ever tried to find a healthy eating option at that time of night? My choices are essentially limited to hamburgers, bacon and tacos. Sometimes I’ve just combined all three — yes, I really have eaten a hamburger and bacon taco. Trust me, it’s far more delicious than it sounds. The Trojans’ success on the field hasn’t helped matters much, either. Generally speaking, the more wins the team has, the more stories I write. The more stories I write, the more time I spend at work. The more time I spend at work, the more likely I am to indulge in fast food. Really, it’s all a vicious cir-

cle. Kind of like a doughnut. Speaking of which, I think I could go for a doughnut right about now. (See? It never ends). I can’t lie to you — it’s been a fun (and delicious) ride. As the wins piled up, so did my caloric intake. Now, however, the season is winding down. Troy is in the playoffs — which means it could see at least five more games (which, by my math, means I could be up to a 45pound weight gain before this literal gravy train reaches its final stop). When it all ends, however, what will I be left with? My memories, some empty french fry boxes and pants that no longer fit. Given how cheap I am, I’d rather lose weight than buy new pants. So, the day the football season ends, I’m back on a diet — and the treadmill. Fortunately, I’ve been down this road before. I’ve put on and taken off (and put on and taken off and put on and taken off) weight more often than Oprah. I’ve spent most of

my adult life engaging in some sort of diet plan or another. Four years ago, however, I thought I had finally lost the weight for good. That’s when reporter “Twin” Melanie Yingst’s sister (also named “Twin”) saw me and very gently and subtly pointed out that I had managed to gain a few pounds. And by “subtly and gently,” I mean she said, “Wow, Fong! You got really fat!” (Twin’s sister Twin has the same sort of kind and genteel nature as her twin sister, as it turns out). In any event, I lost the weight and kept it off for four years. Until Troy’s recent run of success, that is. Now I’m stuck with pants that don’t fit and a body that gets worn out walking up a flight of stairs. Hopefully once the season ends, I’ll be able to shed the pounds. Until next season, at least. Troy’s very own David Fong appears on Thursdays in the Troy Daily News. There’s just more of him to love.

AN OHIO COMMUNITY MEDIA NEWSPAPER 224 S. Market St. Troy, Ohio 45373 335-5634



Thursday, November 3, 2011

M-U board to fill three seats of Ohio, and will celebrate the new beginning as we cherish the memory of the old. Christopher S. Long (I)

• Four candidates, including Shelley Swigart, Christopher S. Long, Jodi Minneman and Daniel Smiley are running for Milton-Union Board of Education seats. Three will be elected. Shelley Swigart (I) Date of birth: Sept. 23, 1963 Place of birth: Dayton Family: Husband Monte Swigart and children Molly SWIGART Swigart of Indianapolis, Ind., and Emma Swigart of Laura Experience: Current Milton-Union and MVCTC Board of Education member since 2008 Employment: Registered nurse working at Troy Internal Medicine, Troy Previous place of employment: Upper Valley Professional Corporation, RN Education: MiltonUnion High School, Miami Vally J.V.S., 1981 graduate. Sinclair Community College, associate’s degree in nursing, 1984 Achievement: Returning to my nursing career about 1 year ago after having stayed home to raise our daughters for 12 years. The pay was terrible, but benefits were outstanding! Why I’m running for office: I care about our community and the kids we have entrusted to us. I have learned a lot about school business and education while serving the last four years on the board of education, but feel as though I have much more to learn and contribute. Why voters should choose me: I believe that I represent the average Miltonian and strive to keep the best interest of the kids and taxpayers in my decision making. What I consider important issues: Striving to improve academics for all students is one issue that is of great importance, yet very challenging. We have made great strides in the past several years, even though finances have been decreased. We had the highest graduation rate in Milton-Union history for the 2010-2011 school year and received an “Excellent” rating for each of our three buildings! We have to help our students get the best education possible, using the dollars we have. Second is to help continue to foster trust and partnership with the people in our community. The current board of education and administration have an open door policy and appreciate feedback. We all need to continue to work together to be the best we can for our kids and the community as a whole. We soon will be opening one of the finest new K-12 facilities in the state

Date of birth: Nov. 25, 1942 Place of birth: Culver City, Calif. Family: Wife Linda Long and daughter Stephanie Long of Union Experience: Served on MiltonUnion Board of Education since 2007; served on West Milton Municipal Council 1981-85 (including vice LONG mayor) Employment: Long & Associates Inc., West Milton; President (1984current); Public Relations Company, Dayton (19741984) Education: Capitol Hill High School, Oklahoma City, Okla., graduated 1960; attended University of Central Oklahoma and majored in marketing and personnel management (1965-1969); completed University of Notre Dame Association Management Program (Chamber of Commerce of the United States) (sixyear summer program); attended four Capital Conferences produced by the Ohio School Board Association Proudest achievement: Founded Long & Associates, Inc., in 1984; firm continues to be successful and employs 12 people. Why I’m running for office: I have a passion for and commitment to the children of our district. Working with the board, administration, teachers, employees, and community, we have made tremendous strides in providing a quality education and learning environment for our children. I want to continue applying my business skills and my sincere passion for children to the critically important responsibility of serving as a board of education member. Why voters should choose me: I believe that during the past five years I have demonstrated my sincere desire to be a meaningful, contributing member of the MiltonUnion Board of Education. In addition to serving on the BOE, I am a member of the Miami County Children Services Board, and have served as a Kid’s Hope Tutor/Mentor in the Milton-Union Elementary School, this being my 14th year. During my term on the board of education: our school and district have been named “Excellent” by the Ohio Department of Education, Milton-Union Schools were recognized nationally for the highest achievement and the lowest cost, and in 2010, we achieved the highest graduation rate in MiltonUnion history. Many people contributed to make all of this a reality. I want to continue to do my part as a board member to provide an even higher level of educational excellence on behalf of our children. What I consider important issues: The number one issue facing the board and district is how to continue providing a school of Excellence within the financial constraints

Participants, volunteers sought TIPP CITY — The Golden Acres Ministrant Center is in planning for this year’s annual Christmas for Children program. The program, now in its 15th year, is

Jodi Minneman (I) Date of birth: Aug. 20, 1959 Place of birth: Dayton Family: Husband Doug and children Matt and Leah, both in college in Ohio Experience: I have been a member of the school board for 12 years. This will be my fourth term. Employment: Chief Operating Officer for Community Blood Center, Dayton. I have worked there for 28 years. Education: 1977 graduate of Milton-Union, attended K-12; 1981 graduate of Wright State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in medical technology, certified as a clinical laboratory scientist through the American Society of Clinical Pathology. Proudest achievement: Balancing career (I have a wonderful job; I get the fun of running a business, but we don’t make widgits, we save lives each and every day) with family life and raising two great children, both currently attending college. Why I’m running for office: Because after 12 years I want to see through the completion of the building project, which will provide our students, faculty and staff with a state of the art learning environment. Additionally, I want to increase test scores of the students so that they may reach their full potential as adults. Why the voters should choose me: As a lifelong resident of this community, I care about our kids and seeing that they get the best education possible. I have the skill sets and experience necessary to deal with the tough issues that we are facing and will continue to face in the future. As a taxpayer in this community I want to make sure that our dollars are spent wisely. Additionally, I do not have a personal agenda, I want to see that we prepare our students for the future and that we do this in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible. What I consider important issues: Continue to work with the faculty, staff, students and community so that our school remains rated as excellent by the state. This translates to working on increasing student performance in addition to providing an appropriate learning environment for all students. I will work with the administration, faculty, staff and community to operate the district in a financially responsible manner. As dollars continue to get cut from our budgets by the state and other sources we must find creative, cost effective ways to teach our students.

Daniel Smiley Family: Wife Lisa; daughters Samantha, and Danielle, and son Kain Experience: Eight years municipal government village of Potsdam Employment: Morning Fresh Superior Foods, Coldwater, account manager Education: MiltonUnion High School, class of 1982; ITT Technical Institute, Dayton, associate’s degree in mechanical design, 1987; Capital University, Columbus, Bachelor of Arts in business management, SMILEY 2007. Proudest achievement: I feel that continuous education is an important factor in the growth of an individual. Therefore, returning to school in adulthood and earning a bachelor’s degree would be the accomplishment that I am most proud of. Why I’m running for office: The reason that I am running for the office of the Milton-Union Board of Education is primarily because I like to be involved in the decision making process. In high school I was a class officer, in college I was a part of the student council, and when I settled in Potsdam I became involved in municipal government. I believe that I am able to take in a situation, evaluate it and help justify the best answer for the ensuing circumstance. Why voters should choose me: I feel that I am the best candidate for the office because I am the new idea. Every other candidate is a sitting board member. I have nothing but respect for each of them, but with that being said, we are entering into a new school next year and I feel that a new perspective needs to be involved in the decision making within our school system as we move forward. I have always been very approachable within the community and will give anyone a moment of time to answer or listen if that is what I need to do to clarify any concerns of theirs if elected into office on Nov. 8. What I consider important issues: I would think the top issue that this office will face in the near future is the operations of the new school that is being built. Our kids will be entering into a new kindergarten through 12th school next year and we don’t really know what it will cost to operate this new building until it has been placed into service. With state and federal funding on the decline, the passing of the 17-mill renewal is very important as this money is used solely for operating expenses. The second issue would be how to stay on top? If you don’t know, all three buildings and the district earned “Excellent” on the Ohio Department of Education report card in the 2010-2011 school year. Fantastic!!! We must however move forward instead of looking back. The world is ever changing and so new ways must be discovered to continually challenge the staff and students at MiltonUnion Schools.

that envelop us. During the past two years, the task hasn’t been easy or pleasant. It will become even more challenging in the years to come. The community has made it possible for the children of our district to be educated in perhaps the finest K-12 facility in the entire State of Ohio. The new facilities will create an educational environment never before realized in our district. We must properly and effectively manage the facility to maximize its impact on education.

It might be best to stay out of the way this time

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

Dear Annie: I am a stepmom to two wonderful little boys under the age of 4. I treat them the same as my own children. The problem is their mother. "Carla" acts as if I am the wicked witch. I know it is hard to let another woman care for your children. I have assured her numerous times that I am not out to take her place. She is their mother and always will be. Two years ago, the children were removed from her home due to anger issues and drug abuse. She had some counseling and now shares joint custody with their father. But if I happen to run into Carla when she is with the boys, she causes a huge scene, yelling and cussing at me if the boys say hello. She has sent me awful text messages and threatening Facebook posts. I always try to be the bigger person and ignore her, but it's hard. I have had to call the police numerous times when I felt she was a danger to my children or me. My husband tries to keep the peace because no one knows what Carla is capable of. I feel she is unstable. The youngest son has minor surgery scheduled, and Carla told my husband I better not show up at the hospital. As a stepmom, what am I to do? — Not-So-Wicked Stepmother Dear Stepmom: It doesn't sound as if Carla's counseling was sufficient to overcome her anger issues. She is a loose cannon and could be dangerous. Please keep records of her threatening texts and posts in case your husband chooses to fight the custody arrangement. We understand that he fears rocking the boat, and there is no simple solution. Sometimes the best thing is just to stay out of the way and be as non-confrontational as possible. That includes not going to the hospital. Have your husband convey your good wishes to your stepson. Also try the National Stepfamily Resource Center ( for a support group in your area. Dear Annie: I was adopted as an infant. I am now in my early 20s and am interested in contacting my birth family. I know my birth mother's name from a letter she wrote me, in which she asked me to contact her if I ever wanted to. It wasn't hard to find her or her family. I even found the Facebook pages of my older half-siblings, who know about me. By perusing those pages, I learned my birth mother died 10 years ago. I want to make contact with my biological family, but I don't know if they shared my mother's wish to meet me. I don't want to cause them any pain, and I don't want to overstep any boundaries. Doing this through Facebook seems tacky, and the only address I have is for my bio mother's sister. Isn't it more appropriate to contact my grandmother first? How should I proceed? — Adopted Child Dear Adopted: You are overthinking this. Send a letter to your bio mother's sister. Tell her about yourself and that you'd like to establish contact. Say you want to get to know your grandmother and half-siblings, but do not wish to intrude. If you do not hear anything back within a month, it is OK to contact your half-siblings via Facebook. If there is still no response, it means they are not interested. Dear Annie: This is for "Stressed Out by Picky Eaters," whose family makes holidays more difficult with their various dietary demands. Why not have them cook with her in her kitchen? This way, they can each prepare a side dish they know they will love and share it with their family. Instead of being resentful, they will create many memories along with all the great food. — Sunday Dinner Fanatic in Clive, Iowa 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:


Here are some cast-iron solutions from Heloise Dear Readers: A recent column on how to clean cast iron skillets had many of you sharing your hints. Here are just a few of them: • Gerald C. in Fayetteville, N.C., says: “Dry it with a paper towel. Put in coarse salt. Rub hard with a tough rag, and the skillet will clean up.” • James C., via email, says, “The technique I learned in keeping your pan clean is to use salt and oil with a paper towel as a scrubber.” • Charles P., via email, says: “When cleaned and rinsed, I place the skillet on my cooktop over a high flame

Hints from Heloise Columnist to quick-dry, then wipe (when cold — Heloise) with a paper towel that has been anointed with a little vegetable oil.” • Janet C., via email, says: “Put a grungy cast-iron skillet in your oven when you turn on the self-cleaning feature.” (Heloise here: You can only place your cast-iron in the

oven when self-cleaning if you have the type of oven that has racks able to stay in during this cleaning process. Many ovens require that you remove the racks before self-cleaning, so please be sure to check your manual before doing this). • Joan B. in Omaha, Neb., says: “My father was always working in his garage on his projects. One day, when my mother went shopping, he sand-blasted the gunk off! He was so proud of how shiny he got it. I don’t think my mother was very happy, though. But we all had a good laugh.” I’m sure he meant well, but a beautiful, black cast-iron

skillet is a treasure! Thanks to all the readers for sharing your hints! — Heloise HELOISE’S TEST YOUR HINT IQ Dear Readers: What can you use as a substitute for honey? Here are your choices: • corn syrup • maple syrup • jelly. The “honey” of an answer is corn syrup. Corn syrup can be substituted for honey in most recipes. Remember, it’s not as sweet as honey, so a dessert won’t be as sweet, and the texture and flavor might be a little different. — Heloise











HOROSCOPE Thursday, Nov. 3, 2011 Advancement in your chosen field of endeavor is highly likely in the year ahead, but you’ll need to be patient, because it’s also very possible that your ascendancy will happen in fits and starts. Relax and go with the flow. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Nature has endowed you with a healthy dose of drive and determination, both of which are enormous assets. Usually, once you set your mind to something it’s a fait accompli, but not today. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — There should be no need to revise your painstakingly laid-out plans. Don’t try to second-guess yourself and fail to follow through on your arrangements. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — During this cycle, you should be exceptionally fortunate because of persons with whom you’re involved. However, if someone in the group gets greedy, all bets are off. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — In your mind everything will work out as long as everyone goes along with your way of thinking, but woe to those who oppose you. You may need to make a serious attitude adjustment. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You’ll be far happier devoting your efforts and energies to tasks that are of a mental or creative nature, so try to stick to those areas. You’re not apt to handle physical chores too well. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — You have a lot going for you, such as sharp thinking, good friends and even some help from Lady Luck, yet you may fail to appreciate this and thus not capitalize on it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — As long as you don’t allow your impulses to override good methodology, you can achieve more than your share of objectives. Be systematic, practical and patient. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — If you’re smart, you’ll stay away from subjects that are debatable and can’t be solved anyway. Your mood is such that you aren’t likely to mince words with people who disagree. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Teaming up with another in a common cause can be extremely productive, but only if both you and your teammate put forth an equal amount of effort. Make sure each party pulls his or her weight. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Someone with whom you’re involved might need a bit of a push from you to get him or her started. If you can’t handle this, stay away from any joint endeavor. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You’re likely to be extremely productive and industrious, which is all well and good. However, if you get too far ahead of teammates, you could disrupt the assembly line. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — You’ll be happier sticking to those whom you know like and admire you, and staying clear of people who think they are better than everybody else. You don’t need any bad experiences. COPYRIGHT 2011 UNITED FEATURE SYNDICATE, INC.

Try a delicious homemade peanut butter dessert This is the last day of October. It is hard to believe there is only two months out of the year left. Yesterday, Oct. 30, was brother Amos’s 50th birthday. His wife Nancy had invited all of us siblings to surprise him and come for dinner. Amos was definitely very surprised, he had not expected anything. It is always easy for me to remember how old Amos is because he is 10 years older than I am. He is the second oldest of us eight siblings. It was a chilly day outside but it was a sunny making it warm enough so that the men could play croquet outside. The children enjoyed riding their three ponies and taking a pony buggy ride. They also played kickball. Meanwhile, for the birthday feast we were served a delicious meal of barbecued chicken, hot wings, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, corn, lettuce salad, sliced cheese,

family ate some chicken before heading for home. We started back around 5:30 p.m. arriving home around 7:30 p.m. The children were ready for bed early as they had a long day. We had started out at 6 a.m. We stopped and ate breakfast on the way which is always a treat for everyone. I think I enjoy it the most since Lovina Eicher I don’t have to cook breakfast.

Before we started back for Amos and Nancy had a home Nancy heated up some nice harvest of endive this of the leftovers. Some of the fall. I haven’t had much luck


in growing it but mother always had nice heads of endive. We would substitute it for lettuce in the fall. Saturday we had a short visit from Uncle Joe and Betty and cousin Brian and his family. My husband Joe and the three boys were not home when they were here, they were over at Timothy’s helping to build box stalls in his barn. Just before Joe and Betty arrived we had some thunder and lightning and it even hailed for awhile. Later in the day, when Joe and the boys were coming home in the pony cart they said it was sleeting. It had really cooled down by then. Our thermometer showed 28 degrees so it felt good to have heat in the house. Joe and Betty also stopped in at Amos’s on Sunday afternoon to wish him a happy 50th. I will share the recipe for homemade peanut butter dessert with your readers.

The recipe consists of three parts. Crust: 1 /2 cup margarine 1 cup flour Optional one cup chopped nuts In a bowl, mix together softened margarine and flour (and nuts) and press into a 9 X 13 inch cake pan. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until brown. Cool Filling: 8 ounces cream cheese softened 1 /4 cup milk 1 3 /4 cup powdered sugar 1 cup peanut butter 8 ounces whipped topping In a bowl mix cream cheese, milk, powdered sugar, and peanut butter well. Fold in whipped topping. Pour over cool crust. Topping: 2 3 /4 cups milk 2 3 ounce boxes of instant chocolate pudding Mix together and pour over filling and top with chocolate chips if desired. Serve.

Apples and squash offer autumnal take to recipe (AP) — The traditional flavors of a delicious Italian lasagna — creamy ricotta blended with savory herbs — are wonderfully balanced by harvest fruits and vegetables, including thinly sliced butternut squash and apples. The result is a deliciously sweet and savory main course perfect for a vegetarian Thanksgiving. For ease, the lasagna can be fully assembled then refrigerated a day in advance. APPLE-SQUASH LASAGNA Start to finish: 1 hour 30 minutes (30 minutes active) Servings: 12 32-ounce tub part-skim ricotta cheese 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage 1 tablespoon chopped fresh marjoram 2 eggs 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 1/2 pounds butternut squash, peeled 3 Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce 3/4 cup water 9-ounce package no-boil lasagna noodles 3 cups baby spinach 1 pound (about 5 cups) shredded fontina cheese Heat the oven to 400 F. Lightly coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, whisk together the ricotta cheese, rosemary, thyme, sage, marjoram, eggs, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Slice the butternut squash into very thin and even strips. If possible, use a mandoline, if available. Add the squash to the boiling water and blanch for 2 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the squash to a clean kitchen towel to drain. In a medium bowl, mix the apples with the apple sauce. Pour the water into the prepared pan. Top with a layer of lasagna noodles. Spread 1 cup of the ricotta mixture over the noodles. Top with 1 cup of spinach, an even layer of sliced squash, 1/2 cup of the apple mixture and 1 cup of shredded fontina. Repeat this layering 3 more times, skipping the apple in the final layer and ending with a final layer of squash and the final cup of fontina.

This Oct. 19, photo shows an apple-squash lasagna, left, apple roasted vegetables, center, apple butter peas, bottom right, alongside apple cranberry tapenade, left under lasagna, and apple thyme rolls, background, in Concord, N.H. (AP Photo/Matthew Mead) Cover the lasagna with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 15 minutes, or until the cheese on the top is golden and bubbly.

Allow the lasagna to cool and set up for at least 30 minutes before serving. Nutrition information per serving (values are rounded to the nearest whole number): 410 calories;

East, 2-0

With the team’s entire season on the line, the Vikings’ only senior made the play of her career. With the match tied at 1-1 and in the final stages of the critical third game, Miami East’s Kelsey Vanchure made a diving save at an impossible angle while nearly sliding under the net to keep the longest rally of the match alive — a rally that was finished off by an Abby Cash kill — and the Vikings turned a tight match into a domKETTERING inant win over Anna in four, 25-7, 19-25, 25-15, 25-11, in the Division IV Regional semifinal round Wednesday at Trent Arena. As unstoppable as Miami East (26-1) looked in the first game, the Rockets were equally stubborn defensively, doing what the Vikings have done to so many other teams this season by keeping points going for a long time and forcing the opposition into mistakes — enough to cause the Vikings to lose their first game of their tournament run.

■ High School Football

Trojans ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 seconds to go before halftime, the Eagles lined up for a punt. Troy linebacker Zach Butcher broke through the line and blocked the punt, knocking it into the Chaminade end zone, where Miles Hibbler fell on it, giving the Trojans a 17-0 lead — and a wealth of momentum — going into halftime. Troy would cruise to a 30-0 victory. The very next week against Middletown, Troy led 7-6 just before halftime. On the final play of the second quarter, Butcher blocked a field a field goal attempt and appeared to have returned it for a touch-

down, only to have it called back on a penalty. Instead of going into halftime with a 14-6 lead and all the momentum, the Trojans went in up by a point and ended up losing 29-21 — the blocked field goal being the difference in the game. Troy’s special teams will be put to the test Saturday as the Trojans travel to Upper Arlington for a Division I, Region 3 regional playoff game. Aside from the botched blocked field goal return against Middletown, Troy’s special teams have been solid all season. Nolan hopes that will continue against the Golden Bears.

■ Major League Baseball

“In a close game, special teams can win or lose a football game for you — which is why we spend so much time working on special teams,” Nolan said. “Obviously we’ve seen already this season how important special teams can be. We’ve been pretty good on special teams this year. Our kickoff and punt returns have been pretty stable. We’ve had pretty good coverage — we’ve had a couple of scary ones, but no one has taken any back on us. Hopefully that will continue Saturday.” Senior wide receiver Ian Dunaway is the face of the Trojans’ special teams units. He is Troy’s punter, averag-

ing 34.8 yards per punt this season. He’s also Troy’s punt returner, having returned a punt for a touchdown last week against Sidney and returned a punt 86 yards against Piqua to set up a game-clinching touchdown. As if that weren’t enough, he’s also the holder on field goal attempts — where he’s thrown two passes for twopoint conversions on botched extra point attempts. “Special teams can be a game-changer,” Dunaway said. “Big plays can go with you or go against you. You have to have good special teams. It’s the third part of the game, along with offense

and defense, and you can’t ignore them. This year we’ve been pretty good on special teams. The coaches have done a good job incorporating special teams into practice — probably more than we have any other year.” Troy’s kicking game is short on experience — but long on talent. The kicker is a freshman, Zach Thompson, while the long snapper is a sophomore, Alex Dalton. “Our kicking game has done outstanding this year,” Nolan said. “That’s asking an awful lot for a freshman to come in and kick at the varsity level, but he’s handled it really well. And he’s

done a nice job on the kickoffs, as well. He’s put them in the right places and hasn’t allowed and big returns.” Upper Arlington features special teams units as good as any the Trojans have faced this season. Senior Frank Epitropoulos — who will play next season at Ohio State — is both a returner and an All-Ohio punter. “They’ve got speed everywhere on their return teams,” Nolan said. “That’s something we have to be aware of. We can’t afford to let them have any big returns.” As Troy has already learned this season, it could make all the difference.

Dodgers headed to bankruptcy NEW YORK (AP) — Maybe a “For Sale” sign should be erected outside Dodger Stadium. Team, ballpark, land and television rights available. Price: $1 billion and up. The process of finding a new owner for the Los Angeles Dodgers began early Wednesday when current boss Frank McCourt and Major League Baseball released a joint statement saying they had agreed to a court-supervised sale of the once-glamorous and now bankrupt franchise. In the long-term, the deal will allow the Dodgers move ahead and try to get back to baseball’s elite. But the club’s fans may well have to endure another season adrift as the sale works itself out. While the sides hope for a quick deal, giving McCourt the money to pay his divorce settlement by April, MLB sales sometimes drag on for six months to 1 year. Once bidders are identified, the court is likely to conduct an auction. “Baseball can choose to have their approval process move like molasses in winter or like Castor oil through a baby,” said Marc Ganis, president of Sportscorp, a Chicago-based consulting firm. The price likely will break the record for a baseball franchise, topping the $845 million paid by the Ricketts family for the Chicago Cubs in 2009. Investors will be solicited by the Blackstone Group, McCourt’s investment banker. Dallas Mavericks co-owner Mark Cuban and Pittsburgh Penguins co-owner Ron Burkle, who lives in California, have been mentioned as possibilities. Asian investors have made inquiries. Former agent Dennis Gilbert, a friend of Chicago White Sox chair-

man Jerry Reinsdorf, hopes to put together a group. Former Dodgers Steve Garvey and Orel Hershiser have said they might be interested, as has former general manager Fred Claire. Claire is aligned with former Oakland Athletics president Andy Dolich and former Dodgers batboy Ben Hwang, who brought in the financial backers. Claire, the Dodgers’ GM from 198798, assumes the price will be $800 million to $1 billion and up. “I’ve been working on this venture since early July,” Claire said. “My motivation is to see the Dodgers be what they need to be in the community.” Given the future broadcasting rights at stake and their ownership of regional sports networks in southern California, News Corp. and Time Warner Inc. have been considered possible bidders, as could The Walt Disney Co. But News Corp. is out, an executive said. “Contrary to questions I got today, we’re not buying the Dodgers,” News Corp. chief operating officer Chase Carey told analysts on a conference call Wednesday afternoon. “Sports rights are probably becoming more complicated. I think it’s just a reality of the marketplace. … Outside Southern California, we’ve got pretty longterm agreements in place. I feel we’ll be able to navigate Southern California reasonably well.” Real estate companies may join in, given the land the Dodgers own in Chavez Ravine that potentially could be developed. Massive amounts of bank financing will have to be arranged. “And you’ve got plenty of FOBs interested in the Dodgers,” Ganis said, referring to “Friends of Bud” Commissioner Bud Selig.

Up for the challenge Covington set to host Coldwater in playoff opener BY ROB KISER Ohio Community Media


COVINGTON — Covington just finished off a second straight 10-0 regular season. And for the Buccs, who haven not lost a regular season since 2009, what is the reward? Moving up to Division V this season and hosting a 7-3 Coldwater team that has 41 playoff wins and advanced to the state title game a year ago. But Covington is embracing that opportunity. “They have a great football team,” Covington coach Dave Miller said. “There is no question about it. This is going to be a much different challenge for us. But, the kids are excited about the opportunity.” Coldwater runs a spread offense, with quarterback Austin Bruns hav-

ing passed for 1,661 yards and 17 touchdowns, while throwing 12 interceptions. He has completed 133 of 260 passes and is also the team’s leading rusher with 483 yards on 150 carries, running for four TDs. “He is a prospect,” Miller said. “He is only a junior, but he is 6-4, 205. And he can run the ball. He is a player and it is going to be a challenge for our defense.” Caleb Siefring leads the receivers with 29 catches for 427 yards and nine TDs. Josh Huber has caught 26 passes for 341 yards and Aaron Mestemaker has caught 23 passes for 305 yards. They will be matched up against a Covington defense that leads the area, allowing just 145 yards per game. “There is no question, the defense has played

great all year,” Miller said. “This is one of the better defenses I have had. We had a pretty good one my first year, but this defense is real good. But this is going to be a whole different challenge. The kids are excited about it.” Covington had impressive numbers on offense as well. Running back Alex Baskerville (6-0, 174, 11) went over 1,000 yards rushing last week to lead a potent attack out of the Buccs triple-option attack. Senior Isaiah Wintson (5-10, 174) and junior Trent Tobias (5-10, 164) have split time at the quarterback position. Winston has rushed for almost 1,000 yards and Tobias has completed almost 70 percent of his passes, although the Buccs don’t throw often. “It (the triple-option) has been very effective for us,” Miller said. “Nobody

else around here runs it, so I think that gives us an advantage. We don’t throw it a lot, but we can throw it if we need to.” And like the Buccs’ defense, Miller said Covington’s offense may well face its biggest challenge of the year against the Cavaliers seven-front defense. “That is a heck of a defense we are going up against,” Miller said. “They are going to bring a lot of pressure. There is no question our offensive line will be a big key.” And it doesn’t hurt to be playing on the friendly confines of Smith Field. “I think it is a big advanatage,” Miller said. “Especially when you are playing a team like Coldwater. It’s a goal for us every year and the kids are excited about this opportunity.” And looking forward to their biggest challenge thus far.

Cubs fire manager Quade CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Cubs manager Mike Quade was fired Wednesday in the first major move by Theo Epstein since becoming the team’s president of baseball operations. Epstein, who was introduced in his new position last week, said Quade would not return after traveling to Florida to tell him in person. He called Quade an “outstanding baseball guy” but it was time for a change. Quade got the job after a 37-game audition at the end of the 2010 season, replacing Lou Piniella on

an interim basis. The Cubs went 24-13 and he was chosen over Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg for the job last season. The Cubs went out and stumbled through another disappointing year, finishing fifth in the NL Central with a 71-91 record that extended their infamous World Series championship drought to 103 years. Epstein and new GM Jed Hoyer had a long meeting with Quade last week. Epstein had another lengthy conversation with him after a news conference Tuesday to introduce Hoyer and new scouting director

Jason McLeod. “While Mike is clearly an asset to any organization and any major league staff, Jed and I believe that the Cubs would benefit longterm from bringing in a manager for 2012 who can come in with a clean slate and offer new direction,” Epstein said. He said the search for Quade’s replacement would begin immediately. “The next manager must have leadership and communication skills; he must place an emphasis on preparation and accountability; he must establish high standards and a win-

ning culture; he must have integrity and an open mind; and he must have managerial or coaching experience at the major league level,” he said. Epstein spoke with Sandberg on Wednesday and let him know that he wasn’t in the Cubs’ plans. Sandberg, who managed in Chicago’s minor league system and left the organization after Quade was chosen to replace Piniella, does not have major league managerial or coaching experiAP PHOT ence.

‘Boo’ to ‘Boom’ — fans changing tune on Herron COLUMBUS (AP) — The word rolled down from the top rows and picked up steam in the expensive seats at Ohio Stadium: “Booooom!” Not so long before it might have been an extended boo. Not anymore. Twice suspended by the NCAA this year for accepting improper benefits, Dan

“Boom” Herron is now adored by Ohio State fans because the team is winning and he’s picking up big yardage. “It kind of gives you a spark,” Herron said of the chant. “It’s always good to have your fans behind you and supportive of you. I was just happy to be back play-

ing in Ohio State stadium, just being with my teammates and making some plays.” Held out of the Buckeyes’ first six games, the senior tailback has rushed for 274 yards and a touchdown in his two games not so coincidentally victories over ranked opponents.

“We’ve got confidence putting the ball in his hands,” interim coach Luke Fickell said during preparations for Saturday’s home game with Indiana. Once a pariah, now he’s a team leader and favorite of Ohio State’s fickle fans. Herron had a huge junior season as the Buckeyes went

12-1, won their sixth straight Big Ten title and then went on to edge Arkansas 31-26 in the Sugar Bowl. But a month before the bowl victory in New Orleans, Herron was one of five Buckeyes implicated in a scandal involving a local tattoo-parlor owner. The players, including Herron,

Miami East’s Abby Cash sets the ball Wednesday against Anna. ■ CONTINUED FROM 13 “Ball control and communication. If we tighten those two things up, we’ll be fine,” Miami East coach John Cash said. “We haven’t been in four games all year, so this was a big mental test for the girls. But they drew back to the St. Henry match, where we had a big lead in the second game and lost it but ended up winning in three. “I thought we did a nice job of focusing on each other and taking care of business.” With the winner of the third game gaining a gigantic advantage, the Vikings’ response was fast. The match had turned into a cerebral battle, with both teams trying to out-tip and dink each other, aiming the ball at holes in the defense instead of swinging away. But with both defenses playing strong, those holes closed up all too fast. Naturally, the longest rally of many, many long rallies proved to be the turning point. It looked like the Rockets had finally put the ball down, with the Vikings hitting it twice and the ball falling close to the ground. But Vanchure swooped in and popped it up right before it hit, and it somehow found a way back over in spite of the laws of both geometry and physics. Anna, caught by surprise passed it back over too soon, the Vikings set it up cleanly and Abby Cash knocked it down, making it 24-15 and putting the Vikings in a position to close things out. “It was huge,” Vanchure said of the save. “It was really hard (to get it over). You’re already stressing about it being the third hit and knowing you have to get it over. I hit it with one hand and was just trying not to slide under the net.” “That was an all-out hustle play,” John Cash said. “That was a senior not wanting to lose. That was our only senior making a clutch play, a scramble play. That point was a very big deal.” The Vikings went on to win 26 of the next 37 points to easily close out the match, recapturing the fire and power they’d shown in the

It just made everyone’s adrenaline start pumping.” Most of that power came in the form of Leah Dunivan in the third game. Dunivan had four of her match-high eight blocks in that game alone. She finished with five kills, eight blocks and two digs, and fellow captain Abby Cash had a matchhigh 13 kills, 12 assists, seven digs, two blocks and an ace. “I thought Leah played a great game. She was a real leader on the floor. Both of my captains were,” John Cash said of the juniors. “They were communicating with everyone and keeping their teammates calm in the huddle. We’ve gotten nothing but great leadership from those two captains all three years. “It’s easy to forget when watching us — we’re still very young. So that leadership is important.” As a result, the Vikings got solid play across the board. Sam Cash had seven kills, 16 assists, five digs, four blocks and two aces, Angie Mack had six kills, three digs, an ace and a block, Vanchure finished with four kills and three digs, Ashley Current had

■ CONTINUED FROM 13 wins — that tied the school record. Kelly (Rindler) had 14 shutouts — that is a school record. We only allowed eight goals all season — that is a school record. There are just so many things this team accomplished.” While East was trying to advance farther than any Viking team had in the postseason, Carson knew the odds were stacked against them from the start. “Madeira played on turf all year,” she said. “This was our second time playing on turf, and we had two practices on it. Madeira had a 20-minute bus ride — we had an hour and 40 minute bus ride. I don’t like to make excuses, but those things make a difference — and it showed tonight.” The difference was obvious in the early going — the ball seemed to be on the Amazons side of the field for the most of the half and Madeira was able to open a 2-0 lead. In a sign of the way things were going to go, Miami East missed on an attempt to clear the ball from deep in its own end just four minutes into the game — but Rindler was able to cradle the ball before Madeira could take advantage. At the 25:13 mark of the first half, a punt after a Madeira save went across midfield and the Amazons quickly headed it towards the goal. It resulted in a one-on-one,

giving Rindler no chance to make a stop as the ball found the left side of the net to make it 1-0. “It was a long punt,” Carson said. “They headed it and it was off to the races.” Miami East managed to hand in and Katrina Sutherly drew a foul late in the first half, giving her a direct kick from 32 yards out with just 2:12 remaining in the half. Her kick just missed the left corner of the goal in an attempt to tie the game. “We had some chances,” Carson said. Madeira added a backbreaker, working the ball down the field with some beautiful footwork and scoring from point-blank range with just 1:26 remaining in the half to make it 2-0. “I wasn’t sure how much time was left, but I knew it was late,” Carson said. East played much better in the second half after adjusting to the turf and the long bus ride. East had eight shots on goal for the game, while Rindler finished with 10 saves. And the future remains bright for the Vikings. “We had eight sophomores and five juniors out there tonight,” Carson said. “We will miss the seniors, but the future looks very promising.” After a season that will go down as one of the Vikings’ best.

NBA asks judge to clear obstacle

Miami East’s Sam Cash serves Wednesday against Anna at Trent Arena. two kills and a block, Allison Morrett had 17 digs and an ace and Allie Millhouse had 16 digs and two aces. It was a slight measure of payback for the Vikings, who lost to Anna in the sectional final last year. It also was the team’s first-ever regional semifinal victory — the Vikings will play Saturday in their first-ever regional final against Fenwick — a 25-15, 25-14,

25-20 winner over Purcell Marian — at 2 p.m. at Trent Arena. “That’s the cool thing about these kids. They don’t get rattled by anything,” John Cash said. “Here we are, playing in this great arena, this mini-Wright State arena, and they’re just like, ‘It’s a gym.’ They’re very business-like. For as young as they are, they’ve got a lot of character.”

be. But this is kind of new territory for all of our guys. It was fun this week to sit and talk about what the teams across the state look like because we have never had to worry about statewide competition. We do have experience against some of these teams, traveling to bigger meets like Tiffin. We’ve raced against Division I teams all year. So we know what type of teams we are up against.” Meredith has seen some good teams during his 18 years of coaching cross country, having spent eight at Covington and 10 at Milton. During his 10 years at Milton-Union, Meredith has had six teams qualify for

state — the last boys team to make it was 2002. “This team that I have right now, I think is better than the 2002 state team,” Meredith said. “For one, our fourth and fifth guys are faster. The fourth and fifth guys are the most valuable runners on your team because they score the most points. But in terms of experience, we have four seniors who have more experience than that team did.” Milton-Union’s body of work this year has included a Southwestern Buckeye League Buckeye Division title and a third-place finish in the Division II District. The Bulldogs’ final hurdle is the state cross country meet

NEW YORK (AP) — Is the NBA lockout legal or not under antitrust laws? That’s the question league attorneys want a federal judge to answer before players potentially file an antitrust lawsuit as the NFL Players Association did during football’s recent lockout. U.S. District Judge Paul Gardephe, however, expressed reluctance Wednesday to wade into the NBA’s labor mess. In oral arguments in Manhattan, NBA attorney Jeffrey Mishkin said the NBA Player’s Association is using the possibility of an antitrust fight like “a loaded gun” on the negotiating table and urged Gardephe to reject the union’s request to toss the league’s lawsuit. Mishkin said the NBA is seeking the court’s

blessing for its actions so that the union stops threatening an antitrust fight to gain an upper hand in negotiations. “They prefer the uncertainty,” Mishkin said of the union’s effort to get the lawsuit tossed out. “It’s like taking a loaded gun and laying it on the table.” Gardephe brushed aside Mishkin’s argument, saying posturing is part of negotiations. “If they’ve put the gun on the table, it’s not clear there are any bullets in it,” the judge said. “The courts discount threats of litigation in the context of collective bargaining.” The NBA locked out its players July 1, and Commissioner David Stern already has canceled all November games.

They have put in roughly around 5,000 miles during their four years of running. So knowing that these kids get to accomplish something they have beeen shooting for four years now, that is the icing on the cake.” The formula to Milton’s success has been the same all year — strong front-running by Brubaker and Jackson, who both finished in the top 16 at the regional meet and would have qualified for state as individuals, and clutch pack running from Klosterman, Howard, Troy Tyree, Kyle Schwartz and Connor Lundsford, whose times have continued to drop as the season wore

“The top 25 are considered All-Ohio,” Meredith said. “They (Brubaker and Jackson) asked me what I thought a good goal was. I just told them the No. 1 thing is they need to run within their limits. I told them the only thing you can do is stick your nose as far up the pack as you can, and see what you can do. “Our overall goal as a team is to get to finish in the top 10. Every year we’ve gone (to state), we haven’t finished outside the top 10. If we finish in the top 10, we get our picture in the trophy case. These kids have seen those team pictures in there, and that’s where we want to

at National Trail Raceway in Hebron — the first time ever the event has been hosted at National Trail Raceway. “The state championship has never seen a flat final course,” Meredith said. “I suspect with the spectators being able to be closer to the course, you are going to have thousands of people that are going to be like thirty feet away from the runners, and I think it’s going to be exciting. I think kids are just going to have a lot of adrenaline running. I think we are going to see some records broke.” Whatever happens at state will certainly not tarnish what Milton-Union has accomplished this year.

As the team jogged away from Lowry Complex and back to the high school on Wednesday, a simple gesture showed Meredith just how much making it to state meant to his kids. “Cory (Klosterman) summed it up,” Meredith said. “As we jogged back to school, he stopped everybody and gave the ground a big kiss and said, ‘this is the last cross country practice at the Lowry.’ “The Lowry cross country course is a special place, and these kids have ran it countless times over the years. That gesture by Cory was pretty cool to see. It just showed how much this means to all of them.”
