Keepin’ it official Jenkins reflects on 50-plus years in nursing Ruth Jenkins has seen many changes in nursing since she first stepped onto a patient floor at Stouder Memorial Hospital in the 1950s, but she said the biggest advances have come in technology. There were no heart monitors, blood gases, or rating system to help control pain when she started on the night shift in 1956 following graduation from Christ Hospital School of Nursing in Cincinnati. “We did not have all of the technology that we have now, but our training was such that we were taught to use our senses.” See Page 6.

Longtime poll workers help keep Covington voting precincts running smoothly

U.S. wealth gap between young and old is widest ever

BY MELODY VALLIEU Staff Writer lection Day is a time in an American’s life when his or her voice can be heard. And nobody believes that more than longtime Miami County Board of Elections poll workers Kathy Donaghy and Natalie Miller. Both serve as presiding judges in Covington at the rescue squad building off Mote Drive. Presiding judges are responsible for making the major decisions for individual precincts, from setting up for the day, working to fix failed equipment, helping voters with any needs, making sure all paperwork is done correctly and returning all necessary information to the board of elections at the close of voting, among other things. Three other poll workers assist presiding judges at each precinct. Both women said they believe voting is a right that everyone should take advantage of. “Because if we don’t vote, if we don’t express how we feel, nothing changes,” said Donaghy, a Troy resident. Miller agrees. “I don’t think you should let other people decide for you,” said Miller, of Pleasant Hill. “You should make decisions about your finances and how your money will be spent.” Besides working at the polls together, the two also have become good friends over the years, and Miller has even babysat for some of Donaghy’s five grandchildren from her two sons. The two also work together coordinating a delicious menu for Election Day, and say the other poll workers appreciate the variety of foods the two prepare and share. But they first treat themselves to a 4:30 a.m. breakfast, this year planned at Troy’s Steak and Shake. They will then head to

WASHINGTON (AP) — The wealth gap between and older younger Americans has stretched to the widest on record, worsened by a prolonged economic downturn that has wiped out job opportunities for young adults and saddled them with housing and college debt. The typical U.S. household headed by a person age 65 or older has a net worth 47 times greater than a household headed by someone under 35, according to an analysis of census data released Monday. While people typically accumulate assets as they age, this wealth gap is now more than double what it was in 2005 and nearly five times the 10-to-1 disparity a quarter-century ago, after adjusting for inflation. The analysis reflects the impact of the economic downturn, which has hit young adults particularly hard. More are pursuing college or advanced degrees, taking on debt as they wait for the job market to recover. Others are struggling to pay mortgage costs on homes now worth less than when they were bought in the housing boom. The report, coming out before the Nov. 23 deadline for a special congressional committee to propose $1.2 trillion in budget cuts over 10 years, casts a spotlight on a government safety net that has buoyed older Americans on Social Security and Medicare amid wider cuts to education and other programs, including cash assistance for poor families. “It makes us wonder whether the extraordinary amount of resources we spend on retirees and their health care should be at least partially reallocated to those who are hurting worse than them,” said Harry Holzer, a labor economist and public policy

stay healthy and stay in shape. Nobody wants to see a bunch of old men wandering around out there.” Co-sponsored by The City of Troy/Hobart Arena and Ohio Community Media’s I-75 Northern Group newspapers — including The Troy Daily News, Piqua Daily Call and Sidney Daily News — the concert is slated to start at 8 p.m. Doughty said fans who turn out for Friday’s performance can expect to hear a variety of REO’s classic hits, which helped the band sell 40-million records and gain a loyal legion of fans during the past four decades. “Our set list kind of goes all the way back to the 70s and all of the 80s stuff,” he said during a phone interview Friday. “We’ll do some of the radio hits and, of course, do a lot of the old turntable hits — peoples’ favorites at home that were not necessarily hits on the radio. “We’ll start the show with four or five songs in a row off (the Hi Infidelity album), and then finish things off with everything else that people have probably heard on classic rock radio,” he continued. “I think just about anybody who shows up will know every song.” Although REO garnered hits in the early 70s with songs such as “Ridin’ the Storm Out” and “Keep Pushin,’” it wasn’t until 1980 that Hi Infidelity propelled the band into superstar status. The album produced the charttopping power ballad “Keep On Loving You,” in addition to a No. 5 hit “Take It On the Run” and “Don’t Let Him Go,” which peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard mainstream rock chart. Doughty said he knew the band had achieved something special even before Hi Infidelity hit


“Sometimes when we walk out there we go ‘I can’t believe how many people showed up tonight.’ It’s just heartwarming to say the least. And it’s the main reason we have no plans to retire.” — Neal Doughty, REO Speedwagon keyboard player

store shelves. “When we finished in the studio there usually is a month or more of lag time before an album is released, and a lot of times you get kind of sick of the record during that time,” he remembered. “This one … I took my own copy home and listened to it constantly for two months. I felt every song was good, and that’s rare for anybody’s album.” Not only was it a good album, it became one of rock’s biggest albums ever and went on to sell 10 million copies. But perhaps more importantly for the members of the band, it signaled a turning point for REO’s live show. Fans were suddenly turning out in droves. Doughty remembered a concert shortly after the album’s 1980 release where promoters failed to print enough tickets for the crowd that turned up that night. “All the tickets they had printed were sold out, and there were people outside lined up around the corner,” he said. “We were waiting for something like that to happen.” The band charted hits on subsequent albums, including “Keep The Fire Burnin’” from 1982’s Good Trouble record, and another chart topper in 1984 with “Can’t Fight This Feeling” from the Wheels Are Turnin’ album. But Doughty said the success REO enjoyed from Hi Infidelity is the reason people still come out to see

the band. “You can think something is good, but the audience is the final judge. That’s who you’re working for,” he said. “After Hi Infidelity, it progressed into being a crazy one or two years. I think (the album) was No. 1 for something like three months. That was our ‘gold medal.’ And that’s why we can still play today.” Considering he is the last original member of the band that formed in 1967, Doughty said it’s particularly gratifying that people still connect with REO’s music. “Of course, it’s very rewarding. It’s become almost unbelievable. We appreciate it more and more as time goes by,” he said. “Now we have kids who are not even teenagers yet who are singing along with songs we did in the 70s because their parents were playing it … and it’s been handed down to them. “Sometimes when we walk out there we go ‘I can’t believe how many people showed up tonight,’” he continued. “It’s just heartwarming to say the least. And it’s the main reason we have no plans to retire.” The 65-year-old keyboard player said band members and fans seem to have developed similar favorites over the course of the past 40 years of touring. “The list of songs we play also happens to be our favorites. There’s not one song in the set where I have to say ‘Oh, no, I have

to play that tonight,’” Doughty said. “We’re up there playing our favorites and the audience is singing along and treating us like heroes — and that never gets old.” He mentioned “Keep On Loving You” in particular — a slowerpaced song that took REO in a different direction than the rockheavy sounds of its early years. “I really like ‘Keep On Loving You. But the funny thing is, I didn’t like it when Kevin first brought it in,” Doughty said. “We had never done a power ballad. We had been known for doing rock and roll, and we didn’t want to get categorized as a Barry Manilow kind of band. But then (former guitarist) Gary Richrath put a lot of very rockin’ guitar on the song and that really brought it up. “The two or three times in our set that we play a slower song (such as “Can’t Fight This Feeling”) the energy level doesn’t come down one bit,” he said. “The tempo comes down a little, but the energy level never comes down at all. People still know we’re a rock band.” And while half of the band’s members are in their 60s, Doughty said knowing that fans are still turning out for shows — such as Friday’s gig at Hobart — keeps the motivation level high. “I don’t enjoy rehearsals as much as I used to, and I don’t enjoy the bus rides at all. But the two hours where we walk out there and the fans are glad you’re there — that just does not get old. As long as we’re healthy and energetic, we’ll keep doing this.” Tickets for Friday’s show are still available the Hobart Arena box office, by phone at 339-2911, or online at For additional information about REO Speedwagon, visit the band’s website at

Wealth • CONTINUED FROM A1 professor at Georgetown University who called the magnitude of the wealth gap “striking.” The median net worth of households headed by someone 65 or older was $170,494. That is 42 percent more than in 1984, when the Census Bureau first began measuring wealth broken down by age. The median net worth for the younger-age households was $3,662, down by 68 percent from a quartercentury ago, according to the analysis by the Pew Research Center. Net worth includes the value of a person’s home,

possessions and savings accumulated over the years, including stocks, bank accounts, real estate, cars, boats or other property, minus any debt such as mortgages, college loans and credit card bills. Older Americans tend to hold more net worth because they are more likely to have paid off their mortgages and built up more savings from salary, stocks and other investments over time. The median is the midpoint, and thus refers to a typical household. The 47-to-1 wealth gap between old and young is believed by demographers to be the highest ever,

even predating government records. In all, 37 percent of younger-age households have a net worth of zero or less, nearly double the share in 1984. But among households headed by a person 65 or older, the percentage in that category has been largely unchanged at 8 percent. While the wealth gap has been widening gradually due to delayed marriage and increases in single parenting among young adults, the housing bust and recession have made it significantly worse. For young adults, the main asset is their home. Their housing wealth

dropped 31 percent from 1984, the result of increased debt and falling home values. In contrast, Americans 65 or older were more likely to have bought homes long before the housing boom and thus saw a 57 percent gain in housing wealth even after the bust. Older Americans are staying in jobs longer, while young adults now face the highest unemployment since World War II. As a result, the median income of older-age households since 1967 has grown at four times the rate of those headed by the under-35 age group.

Social Security benefits account for 55 percent of the annual income for older-age households, unchanged since 1984. The retirement benefits, which are indexed for inflation, have been a consistent source of income even as safety-net benefits for other groups such as low-income students have failed to keep up with rising costs or begun to fray. The congressional supercommittee that is proposing budget cuts has been reviewing whether to trim college aid programs, such as by restricting eligibility or charging students interest on loans while they are still in school.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Seattle Times on hedge funds: Wall Street still runs the show on Capitol Hill, even with the lessons learned from the Great Recession and the imperatives of the Dodd-Frank financial reforms. The Securities and Exchange Commission adopted rules for those who operate hedge funds and other private investment funds, and then pared back its proposed oversight to the very largest. These oh-so-clever devices — think mutual funds for the nation’s wealthiest — have not been subject to review or reporting requirements. These murky investments ran into trouble before with messy, expensive consequences. Regulators must expect the worst. No sizable investment, especially fancy market plays fueled by borrowing, stands in isolation. The more inventive the scheme, the greater the ripple effect when things go wrong. That was not the argument the SEC heard from the financial industries and their minions in Congress: Rules intended to provide transparency for regulators and investors would be too expensive to implement and monitor.

If ever there were a case for the maxim, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” the U.S. management of the Internet would seem to be it. But there are few issues that a United Nations commission, in solemn conclave assembled, can’t make worse. In September, four authoritarian nations, Russia, China, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, none of them noted as beacons of human rights and unfettered expression, proposed that individual states be allowed to regulate the Internet on their own, or, failing that, to let the U.N. do it. Brushing aside the rhetorical smoke screen of “information security,” they are seeking the right to control their people’s communication with the outside world even more than they do now. Cold War veterans must have felt a twinge of nostalgia reading the language of the Russia, China, et al resolution. It called for “the earliest possible consensus on international norms and rules guiding the behavior of states in the information space.” In the bad old days, the Soviet bloc was regularly coming up with “international norms and rules” that it had no intention of following but would have shackled those nations that believed in the rule of law. The resolution recalled the infamous 2005 U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization conference on a “new world information order” that proposed a supranational agency to control “global media” and censor the world’s press, especially its reporting on the Third World.

time than is possible, and the satisfaction of serving those less fortunate than themselves. Staff members of the agency I work with have not had a raise for three consecutive years, yet they continue to work tirelessly to assist all clients they serve. With state and federal funding cuts now the norm, local dollars raised through human services levies are more critical for essential services than ever before in the social services field. Agencies have cut expenses for several years and now try to avoid losing staff, struggling to keep their doors open and thus continue to pursue their mission(s). This renewal levy will not raise taxes on any homeowner, and support will demonstrate an ongoing commitment and investment in our most vulnerable citizens. Please join me in Voting YES for the Tri-County Board of Recovery & Mental Health Services Renewal levy on Nov. 8! Your vote is important to so many of our neighbors.

To the Editor: I have been involved with recovery services in Miami County for over 30 years. Our residents are extremely fortunate to have mental health and recovery programs available within the county. They have access to quality care provided by committed, dedicated professionals. A critical part of this system is the mental health levy. It helps assure access to a full range of behavioral health services for all family members. The renewal of this levy will not increase your taxes. The cost is miniscule, but the results are significant; an assurance that these vital services will remain available for those in need. Please vote yes on the Mental Health and Recovery Services renewal levy on Nov. 8. — Byron Ewick Covington To the Editor: Having worked in social services most of my adult life, I have had the privilege of witnessing the tremendous benefits of behavioral health services to our local citizens. Mental health, substance abuse, prevention services and crisis services are the types of professional counseling services provided by local agencies supported by this renewal levy. The professionals who deliver these services are caring, committed individuals who chose to work in a relatively low-paying profession, trading monetary benefits for long hours of paperwork, more demand for their

Teachers not playing fair To the Editor: Play fair and share is one of the rules teachers tell their students. Apparently the rule does not apply to the teachers themselves who oppose Issue 2. Teachers want other workers to pay up to 35 percent of the cost of their health insurance. Teachers are fighting the proposed 15 percent they are asked to pay for their own coverage. Why do teachers choose not to play fair and not to share the cost of their own health insurance coverage? — Jenny Fair Troy

Age continues to get the upper hand on me I was sitting at my computer the other day when I happened to look down. “Hmm,” I said to myself, “I wonder whose hands those are?” I looked more closely, and to my surprise I saw that the hands seemed to be connected to my very own arms. “Hmm,” I said to myself, “who stuck those old-looking hands onto my arms? Something isn’t right here.” Then I had to admit, those must really be my hands. Not only that, the right one was attached to a right arm that hurt. Bursitis or something. That’s the problem with getting older. You go right along minding your own business trying to ignore it and then suddenly it just jumps up and hits you in the face – or, in this case, the arm. That’s been happening to me a lot lately. I saw an old friend the other day and he asked me if I was still playing basketball. “No,” I said, “gave that up a long time ago. Kept hurting myself.” “Yeah,” he said wistfully, “me, too.” For a moment – just a moment

David Lindeman Troy Daily News Columnist – we were teenagers playing basketball every night in the park. But just for moment. Then I once again saw my old balding friend and when he shook my hand, my arm hurt. Another friend of mine ran into an old friend and asked how she was doing. “Well,” she said, “I’m deteriorating right on schedule.” That pretty much sums it up. When you’re 15, age isn’t even a factor, except that you want to get old faster, which is a real mistake. At 25, you feel like you can beat the world. At 35, you still feel that way but you can do the math and realize you’ve used up a lot of years already. At 45, you have to admit there are some things you might want to be careful about. At 55, where I am now,

you do a cost-benefit analysis about any physical activity. It used to be when my sons and their friends were playing football or ultimate Frisbee and they asked me if I wanted to jump in, I wouldn’t even hesitate. I’d jump right in there and mix it up with them. Now, I think about my bothersome arm and weak ankles and say, “Thanks, guys, not this time. Maybe next time.” But I’m not sure there will be a next time. I pretty much limit my activities to non-competitive sports these days, like hiking or biking, where my ego can’t get fired up and try to make my 55-year-old body do things like a 15-year-old. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t really consider myself old. When I was in high school, my parents were about 55 and I thought they were ancient, but I don’t feel that way about 55 now. Why, 55 is the new 35, or at least that’s what they say. I suspect if I get to 65 I’ll think 75 is old, and if I get to 75 I’ll think 85 might be old – why, if I get to 100 I’ll be telling jokes about those old guys who are 110. You look at celebrities who are 55 or even 65 or 75 and they look

like they’re 30. Of course, they cheat. They don’t have any original parts left. They’ve had things tucked, tightened, tied and replaced so often that they hardly still have anything they started out with. But even for the rest of us, 55 isn’t so bad and I feel pretty good about the fact that when I go out, I’m going out as an original model, not a reconditioned unit. There are a lot of advantages to getting older, like, uh, well – how about this? The older you get, the wiser you get, because you don’t keep making the same mistakes. Of course, since you’re older you don’t have the opportunity to make a lot of those same mistakes again, but that’s beside the point. There are others, but I’m out of space. I’ll leave you with this bit of wisdom from another friend: Life is like a giant store, and whether or not we want to admit it, we’re all in the checkout line. It’s just that none of us want to be in the express lane.

Veterans to be honored during three-day event Staff Report The Vietnam War ended nearly 40 years ago, producing a generation of war heroes who received little acknowledgement of their service, and virtually no welcome home. For Vietnam veterans and all who love them, the greater Dayton area will be the focal point when the region hosts the MIAMI fourth national Operation VALLEY Welcome Home. The Operation Welcome Home celebration will take place Nov. 10-13, offering multiple venues and events including: • Veteran’s Tribute event at the National Museum of the United States Air Force, complete with music by the Air Force Band of Flight. Guests and speakers will include General Ed Mechenbier, Congressman Steve Austria and Col. (retired) “Chuck” DeBellevue, who earned distinction as the first U.S. Air Force weapons systems officer to become an ace during the Vietnam War in 1972. • Veteran’s Day service at Memorial Hall in downtown Dayton, with keynote speaker Col. Amanda Gladney, 88th ABW and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base installation commander and guest speaker Congressman Michael Turner. • Events at the Dayton Campus of the VA Hospital will include a Veterans Day service, community covenant signing, tours and demonstrations by the Northmont High School ROTC. Speakers will include military officials and elected officials. • REO Speedwagon concert at Hobart Arena in Troy where a veteran tribute song will be performed. • Patriotic parade through downtown Fairborn. Commander Amanda Gladney will serve as parade grand marshal and the keynote speaker will be DeBellevue and guest speaker Austria. Following the parade, participants will be invited to Camp Eagle for lunch where they will be greeted by Turner. Camp Eagle, hosted by the Fairborn American Legion Post No. 526, offers information, products and services of interest to veterans. • POW/MIA ceremony hosted by the Kettering American Legion Post No. 598 with keynote speaker Shelina Frey, command chief, Aeronautical Systems Center/88th Air Base Wing and guest speakers DeBellevue and Austria. • Liberty Film Festival movies: “Air Force,” “We Were Soldiers,” “The Great Dictator,” “As Far As My Feet Will Carry Me,” “Good Morning Vietnam” and “Patton.” Additional events throughout the Miami Valley area will be offered by area service organizations and communities. Although the celebration pays tribute to the service of Vietnam-era veterans, all veterans, as well as active duty military and those serving in the reserves, will be honored. The celebration honors not only those who served in combat, but all who served. Residents and communities across the Miami Valley can show their support for Operation Welcome Home during the celebration by displaying flags and other patriotic items, including a message on outdoor signage for local area businesses that reads “Thank You for your Service and Welcome Home,” and by offering a personal thank you to all the veterans who visit the Miami Valley area for the celebration.

increase her monthly support from $26,000 to $90,000. But the judge instead reduced it to $20,000, suggesting Bunky Hearst’s wife had looted his estate by going on a spending spree with her husband’s money and investment accounts. The judge also recounted how, according to court papers, Hearst’s wife entered his bedroom with two process servers and told him, “We can do it ugly, or we can do it nice. … Remember one thing, I’m much smarter than you are.” The New York Post put it on a list of the city’s nastiest divorces. Bunky Hearst was born in New York City on Dec. 8, 1933, to John Randolph Hearst and Gretchen Wilson. He spent his youth at Hearst Castle in San Simeon, Calif. He said his nickname came from a character in one of his grandfather’s newspapers, the New York JournalAmerican. He is survived by his daughter, Lisa Hearst Hagerman, and three grandchildren.

Jenkins reflects on 50-plus years in nursing For the Troy Daily News


Ruth Jenkins has seen many changes in nursing since she first stepped onto a patient floor at Stouder Memorial Hospital in the 1950s, but she said the biggest advances have come in technology. There were no heart monitors, blood gases, or rating system to help control pain when she started on the night shift in 1956 following graduation from Christ Hospital School of Nursing in Cincinnati. “We did not have all of the technology that we have now, but our training was such that we were taught to use our senses — touch, smell, sight and hearing — to assess patients,” said Jenkins, who in September observed 50 consecutive years in nursing at Miami County hospitals. Although she retired in 2002 as manager of Upper Valley Medical Center’s Cardiopulmonary Rehab, she remains a pool nurse in UVMC Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation, a program that, as one of its founders, remains dear to her own heart. In addition to machines and devices that help in patient monitoring and care, information technology advances will contin-

ue to improve care, Jenkins said. “One of the most wonderful things in general is the information sharing that will go on, which will make a huge difference. People living here and traveling to another state or country, will have their medical background accessible,” she said. “That will make a big difference in cost and timely treatment.” A graduate of Troy High School, the then Ruth Bodenmiller was eager to start nursing school, but attended at her parents’ urging one year of liberal arts education at Taylor University in Indiana. She then entered a three-year nursing program at Christ Hospital. At the time, there were few universities offering a bachelor of science degree in nursing. “My parents wanted me to be sure that I wanted to be a nurse, but I was always sure — from start to finish,” she smiled. “I am very fortunate that I have always felt that I was exactly where I was supposed to be in life with my nursing career. I think that is very fortunate.” The Christ Hospital nursing program included

Ruth Jenkins talks with Bob Jenkins of Troy, a longtime cardiac rehab participant, at Upper Valley Medical Center’s Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Department. Ruth Jenkins was among the program’s founders. She and Bob Jenkins are not related. lots of clinical experience, Jenkins recalled. “We worked different shifts at the hospital and we always had supervision, but we were thrown right into supervisory positions,” she said. “We were young and very nervous but the oversight, the supervision was very close and very strict.” The students spent three months in various affiliations including psychiatric nursing, surgery nursing, Children’s Hospital and the TB hospital in Cincinnati. When she first started the night shift at Stouder, the pay was around $14 for the shift, Jenkins said. “I remember the cost of a Caesarean then was 300 and some dollars, so it was all relative to the time.” she added. Orientation was brief, unlike today, when new nurse orientation can take from six weeks up to four months depending on

where they work, Jenkins said. “Because we had all of that clinical background, we were ready to go once we learned our surroundings,” she said. Jenkins worked in med-surg and pediatrics in the early days. Following marriage to Pete Jenkins and the birth of son, David, Ruth took 18 months off after the birth of second child, Mary. Her service time leading to 50 years started with her return in September 1961. She has seen several approaches to nursing over the years. Among them have been team nursing, in which a registered nurse is in charge of a group of patients and nursing assistants and possibly an LPN who work as a unit to deliver care. Another model is primary care nursing, where one RN has responsibility

nurses now to have advanced degrees. It also is important for them to have certifications in their chosen specialty,” she said. In 1985, Jenkins and Melody Campbell started the cardiac and pulmonary rehab department with two patients and the blessing of Stouder administrators. “I am very, very proud of that department because I saw it grow,” she said with a smile, adding the unit sees around 100 patients a day in cardiac rehab and averages around 20 for pulmonary rehab. “Heart disease is still the number one killer in this country and the people of Miami County need access to this important service. It is inconvenient to travel to Dayton three times a week for rehab,” she noted. Jenkins remains affiliated with the Upper Valley Career Center’s School of Practical Nursing working as a clinical instructor and setting up nursing observation experiences. She also finds it very rewarding to serve on the United Way Board of Troy, the UVMC Foundation Board, The Family Abuse Shelter Board and the Troy Festival of Nations. The Jenkins have three children, David in Los Angeles and Mary and Julia, both who live in Dallas, and five grandchildren. Would Jenkins want to become a nurse today? “Oh yes, absolutely,” she replied. “It is a wonderful profession to have. You are able to blend family and work if you want to and there are so many facets of nursing.”

Now, there is often a form of team or collaborative nursing, with an RN in charge of a group of patients and tasks delegated to assistants. “A lot of the ways models for delivering nursing care have evolved really depend on supply and demand … and it still does,” Jenkins said. In most models, there is a nurse who serves as shift supervisor. Jenkins spent many years in the role called nursing supervisor or nursing resource coordinator, among other titles. “Over the years, I can remember some pretty serious situations we handled,” she said. “I knew, for example, not to release the name of an accident victim until the family had been notified. I was often the person who had to call that family. Sadly, I have many memories about those kinds of situations.” In the years when general practice physicians delivered babies, the nursing supervisors would be involved with deliveries and emergency surgeries, Jenkins recalled, adding, “You really did everything — staffing, making rounds, calling in surgical teams, public relations, etc. — when you were a supervisor at community hospitals like Stouder and Piqua.” Other changes Jenkins has witnessed over the years include the growth in medical specialists and the need for more education for nurses. “It is absolutely essential for

Caring for the Caregiver, an often overlooked player in a time of illness, was the theme for the annual UVMC Community Clergy Appreciation Luncheon. The Oct. 21 luncheon was held in advance of Pastoral Care Week Oct. 23-29. The annual luncheon is a way for the UVMC Pastoral Care Department to give back to clergy in Miami, Darke and Shelby counties who work with the program to

TROY visit church members who are in the hospital, said the Rev. Lisa Baker, Pastoral Care Department Coordinator. “We could not function without them,” Baker said of the clergy role in the pastoral care program, which is available 24/7. The program is staffed by Baker, a parttime chaplain, and four pool chaplains. There also is an office coordinator. Baker presented the

program along with representatives of Hospice of Miami County, the Rev. John Shelton, chaplain, and the Rev. Ed Ellis, chaplain and director of Spiritual Services. “The focus is the needs of the person who is giving the care, the every day strain,” Baker said. “The caregiver is keeping all the balls in the air, and that person often gets neglected.” Baker said a quote from Rosalynn Carter summed up the message: “There are only four kinds of people in this

world: Those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers, those who will need caregivers.” Presentation themes included how a congregation can support a caregiver and whether it is someone caring for a spouse, parents or a child. Shelton and Ellis shared experiences in care giving from their lives, how others helped and the lessons they learned from the illnesses of a spouse and child. Those who might be able to assist need to first determine what the person/family needs, and if the church family can meet any of those needs. Sometimes, the speakers said, the answer is “no.” Listening, Baker said, “is the greatest thing we can offer.” The official Pastoral Care Week observance started in the 1980s first on a national basis. The observation now is international. For more information on UVMC’s Pastoral Care program, contact Baker at extension 7576.

Get a grip on your insecurity Dear Annie: My wife and I just celebrated a bittersweet 25th wedding anniversary. Eight months ago, a friend emailed that my wife's college boyfriend, "Steve," was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Their relationship only lasted a few months, but it was intense. He broke it off. She held on to those feelings for the longest time. Even while we were dating, she communicated with him. I was aware of this, but felt lucky simply to have her in my life. When she informed me of Steve's illness, I did not react well. I said I never liked him and wasn't interested in knowing what was going on. Unbeknownst to me, my wife joined a cancer survivors website that Steve logged on to so she could follow his progress. She found out that he never married. The week Steve died, I saw the website address on her computer. She admitted what she'd done and also told me she had emailed to wish him the best. I was floored by this information. I asked what he said in reply, and she told me, "Not much. It wasn't like he proclaimed his everlasting love." I haven't been able to get that out of my head. Annie, it makes me believe it's what she was hoping for — that he would confess he made a mistake breaking up with her, and that's why he never married. I am crushed. We have had a few blowups over this. Of course, she says she only reconnected with Steve because she felt bad for him. Am I overreacting, or will she always love this guy? — Tough Times in Kentucky Dear Kentucky: Twenty-six years ago, your wife cared for Steve. When she learned he was seriously ill, she felt sorry for him, wanted to see how he was doing and sent her best wishes. This was a perfectly normal, compassionate response. Steve is certainly no threat to you now and probably never was. Somehow you convinced yourself that she married you only because she couldn't have him. Please control your insecurity before you push her away completely. Dear Annie: I live in a large town so I can be near the doctors I need. I am not married, I have no children, and my family members do not live in the area. I am scheduled for brain surgery, and none of my family will be coming to the hospital, although my father said he might. I've spoken with a therapist about it, and he reassures me that it won't be that bad. But can you imagine having major surgery with no person there for you? — Alone in Omaha Dear Alone: This must be a terribly difficult time. Please call your family and tell them how much it would mean to you if someone could sit by your side. Sometimes they don't know. Also contact your friends, who can be a huge source of support. Then ask your doctor if the hospital has a social worker on staff. You are probably not the only person in this position, and hospitals often have help available. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. Dear Annie: I disagree with your answer to "Frustrated with Finances." The bride is totally out of line to expect someone to rearrange three-year plans in order to attend a destination wedding. I had a destination wedding eight years ago. I knew many people would be unable to attend, and it was OK. A few months later, we had a big party and showed the video of our wedding. It worked out perfectly, and there were no hard feelings. — Had the Perfect Wedding Dear Had: You were considerate of your guests, and we don't disagree that "Frustrated's" sister is out of line. But if the couple is going to Hawaii anyway, attending could be done with a minimum of fuss — if they wish to do so.

Less of a laundry load saves a few pennies Dear Heloise: I’m watching my pennies and saving where I can. I want to share a hint: When I’m doing a load of laundry that is not heavily dirty or stained, I fill the machine, let the clothes agitate for a few minutes, turn it off and let the clothes soak for 10-15 minutes. Then I turn it on again so that it agitates for a few minutes, then goes into the rest of the cycle. They come clean, and I save electricity. — Big Red in Omaha, Neb. A “green hint” to help save a little on the energy bill, but remember, don’t use the sec-

Hints from Heloise Columnist ond rinse cycle to save even more on water. — Heloise Dear Readers: Other uses for baby-food glass jars: • Use to store extra buttons. • Store nails and screws in your workshop. • Make a mini snow globe. Fill with water and glitter, and glue a small figurine inside

the top. • Use as water and/or paint cups when painting. • Store matches in them to keep dry. — Heloise MAILING LABELS Dear Heloise: I just realized that I should send some of those free mailing labels (that I’m always getting in the mail) to my friends whom I correspond with. Since our address is long, I know it will help them. — Molly Benoit, via email Just remember that the U.S. Postal Service says that the font size (the size of the lettering) when you use an address label or address an envelope

needs to be no smaller than a size 10 font. — Heloise HANDY SHOE HOLDERS Dear Heloise: Our bedroom doesn’t have enough wall space for a bureau. My husband and I each have LOTS of T-shirts, so I bought two hanging closet shoe holders. I store my T-shirts by color, and my husband stores his “best” T-shirts at the top and his “painting and banana-picking” T-shirts at the bottom. Each shoe slot can hold three or four T-shirts. — Chris Wooding, Haiku, Hawaii Aloha to my friends in Maui. Mahalo. — Heloise



Monday, November 7, 2011










HOROSCOPE BY FRANCIS DRAKE Monday, Nov. 7, 2011 No one has to tell you that strong friendships are of enormous value and lend great support to your life. You’ll do your part in making sure you have plenty of good people around you in the year ahead. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Instead of pushing for something you think you want, let life happen. You’re likely to have the most fun just hanging around with people who mean a lot to you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Even if others don’t understand what you’re doing, because of the successes you’ve had in the past, the general consensus is still likely to be on your side. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If you’re prepared to give a lot in order to get a little, your probabilities for accumulation will be much greater than usual. You’ll be surprised at how quickly your returns will add up. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Someone might have to remind you to take adequate time to reach a decision regarding important issues. If you rush your thinking, some important facts will not be considered. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Unless you can tell the difference between someone who is trying to help you get a better deal and another who is hoping to take advantage of you, you might believe the one with the best sales pitch. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Don’t be judge, jury and prosecutor when engaged in a group endeavor. It’s OK to voice your opinion, but let others have the last word. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Instead of endlessly finding fault with family members who think differently than you, help them see things in another light and then let them decide how to change their ways. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — If you do nothing but help youngsters find their own way in life, you’ll accomplish a great deal. Providing wise counsel to those who need it is one of the best services you can offer. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Be grateful for any kind of returns you can put on the plus side of the ledger. Not all objectives are achievable, but, many times, substitutes can be found that’ll serve the purpose. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Instead of wallowing in despair, focus on the problem at hand and you’ll find measures that can be taken to rectify what you thought was a bum deal. Don’t settle for a loss. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — No matter how juicy the news, keep the confidence that another placed in you when they told you something that is not for other people’s ears. If word gets out, the finger of blame will point at you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Most of the time it is those very things that cost nothing that bring us the greatest pleasure in life. It’s likely to be one of those days when this is apt to be the case.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Monday, Nov. 7, the 311th day of 2011. There are 54 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 7, 1911, Marie Sklodowska Curie was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, eight years after winning the Nobel Prize in Physics with her late husband, Pierre. On this date: In 1811, U.S. forces led by Indiana Territory Gov. William Henry Harrison defeated warriors from Tecumseh’s Confederacy in the Battle of Tippecanoe.

• In 1916, Republican Jeannette Rankin of Montana became the first woman elected to Congress. • In 1917, Russia’s Bolshevik Revolution took place as forces led by Vladimir Ilyich Lenin overthrew the provisional government of Alexander Kerensky. • In 1944, President Franklin D. Roosevelt won an unprecedented fourth term in office, defeating Thomas E. Dewey. • In 1962, Richard Nixon, having lost California’s gubernatorial race, held what he called his “last

press conference,” telling reporters, “You won’t have Nixon to kick around anymore.” • In 1991, basketball star Magic Johnson announced that he had tested positive for the AIDS virus, and was retiring. (Despite his HIV status, Johnson has been able to sustain himself with medication.) • Today’s Birthdays: Evangelist Billy Graham is 93. Singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell is 68. CIA Director David Petraeus is 59. Actress Yunjin Kim is 38. Rapper Tinie (TY’-nee) Tempah is 23.

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 and eventually fake bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western Union branches are trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable.

Chapter Six: The End of the Journey “While it would seem to many that Coronado’s expedition was a failure, he actually discovered many new areas of the southwest United States, and claimed ownership of them for Spain. While they never found gold, their treasures were the amazing places they visited, including the Grand Canyon.” – Coronado and the Golden Cities Karol, Felix and Hector stood on the sidewalk looking up at a sign that read TREASURE ROOM. There was a big golden crown under the words. Instantly, they knew they had been fooled. “Is this supposed to be some kind of a joke?” Felix yelled. “Yeah, Hector,” Karol also was angry. “This isn’t funny!” “I had no idea that this was the treasure,” Hector said, apologetically. “You’ve got to believe me! “When I was little, my dad gave me this,” Hector said, pulling a gold coin from his pocket. “He told me that it came from Gallinas. I tried to get him to tell me more, but he wouldn’t. He would only

ing a wool-beaded vest and buckled into a safety belt, was a small brown goat. “I’ve got an idea,” Felix said, untying the string from around his neck. “This is for Misha!” He hooked the old brass bell onto the goat’s collar. When he stepped back, Felix could see that Demetri had tears in his eyes. “When I left Russia for a new life here in America, I had to leave behind many things,” he began. “And one of them was a small bell that would hang from the doorway of our home. I will forever keep this bell on Misha, and it will bring me good luck. Thank you!” Felix felt like he had removed a heavy weight from around his neck. “You’re welcome,” he said softly. “Well, I don’t know where you three are heading,” Demetri offered, “but I’m on my way to Corona, if you want a ride.” As soon as they heard him say “Corona,” they were climbing into the back of his taxi. “Buckle up, you three, and we’ll be on our way!” he directed. They all did as he asked, then took turns telling Demetri tales of their overnight adventure. “So … ‘the treasure is in the journey.’ What do you

think it means?” Demetri pretended to wonder. “Well, I know I’ve made a couple of really great friends,” Karol said. And suddenly it all made sense. “Thanks, Demetri,” Felix said. “I think you helped us find our treasure!” “It was nice meeting you all. Here’s your stop!” Demetri announced. The taxi pulled up in front of the Corona School. The explorers grabbed their backpacks and thanked Demetri for the ride. “Hold on a minute, chicos,” he said, walking to the back of the car. He opened the trunk and pulled out a well-used, blue and green, very familiar-looking soccer ball. He tossed it to Felix and climbed back into the driver’s seat without another word. “I think my luck is starting to change already. Adios, see you at school tomorrow!” Felix said to his friends. He was eager to tell his grandma about his adventure. And as he walked home, he wondered if the curse had finally been lifted.


say, ‘Just remember, the treasure is in the journey.’ ” Hector held out the hand with the gold coin. It had the same crown as the sign and a few symbols, but no words. “Honestly, I had no idea that the coin came from here. I would never have made you two go through everything we did, for a dumb old game token!” The dejected explorers all sat on the edge of the curb. It was hard for Karol and Felix to stay mad at Hector, because he looked just as disappointed as they felt. And Felix still remembered how he felt just a few days ago, when his soccer friends all shunned him. “It’s OK, amigo,” Felix told his friend. “Thanks, but now we still have to get back home and we’re all out of food!” Hector sniffed. “Hey, we’re three pretty smart explorers. We’ll figure something out!” Felix gave Hector a friendly punch in the arm. “What’s wrong?” Demetri yelled from his rolled-down window. They hadn’t noticed his taxi pull up, and his loud voice startled them. “Well, there wasn’t a treasure after all,” Karol told Demetri. “I’m sorry to hear that,” Demetri said. “Would you kids like to meet my travel partner?” The friends leaned into the taxi and received a shock. Sitting in the front seat, wear-

Did You Know?

Why Voting Matters The government — whether it's in Washington, D.C., in your state, or in your hometown — affects your life and by voting, you get to say what's important to you, and you say it straight to the politicians. It makes us equal. Each of us (when we're old enough) has one and only one vote. Voting is one of the few times when all grown ups in the U.S. have an equal say. No matter how much money you have or who your friends are, you only get one vote. Each vote sends a message. Even if the person you vote for loses, your vote matters because it lets winners and losers know who supports their points of view. Politicians notice who is and isn't voting. In the U.S., the highest voter turnout is among seniors. So it's no surprise that politicians are going to spend a lot of time on issues that are important to older people, like Social Security and Medicare. Younger voters, like 18-24 year-olds, haven't voted in high numbers recently, so it's easier for politicians to pay less attention to the issues that are important to young people. Whoever wins has the power to impact your life. The government is in charge

STIELECON Make your own voting booth You will need: 1. One very large box • A refrigerator box works great • The box should be large enough for students to walk into 2. Paint, Paper, Newspaper • Paint or cover the box with your choice of materials • Design posters or flags, etc. and paste them on the booth 3. Crepe paper streamers • Pick colors to go with your election: red/white/blue for a U.S. election or school colors for school elections

of making important decisions that impact almost every aspect of your life, like... * Your school — such as what gets taught, how many kids are in your class. * The environment including how clean your air and water will be, how we'll deal with global warming problems. * Your health — including whether or not you and your family can get health insurance, how much it costs to go to the doctor or to buy prescription drugs. * Who gets to visit, work and live in our country. If some members of your family live in another country and would like to move here, the federal government controls whether or not they can. * Your safety including how big your police and fire departments are. * How much money we spend on the military and whether we go to war. What happens now has a great effect on the future. If you think that your opinion doesn't matter about who's president now, think again! The people in office now are making decisions that will affect your life now AND later! This is why it's important to get involved and be heard now, even when you can't vote.

Troy’s senior class will be missed BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor


Some final notes from the Troy football team’s 21-20 overtime loss to Upper Arlington in the Division I, Region 3 playoffs Saturday: • MOST VALUABLE PLAYER: As they have all season, the Trojans relied heavily upon the talents of senior halfbacks Isaiah Williams and Marcus Foster Saturday. Williams finished the game with 15 carries for 103 yards and two touchdowns, along with a pair of catches for 24 yards. Foster had an interception and a key tackle for loss late in the game on defense, while carrying the ball six times for 26 yards and a touchdown and catching four passes for 50 yards on offense. Both three-year starters, Troy’s offense will look drastically different without them next season. “They’ve both had outstanding careers,” Troy coach Steve Nolan said. “Because of what we’ve done with our offense the past three years, they haven’t put up the big numbers as some of the other running backs we’ve had here, but they both did so many different things within our offense — they are two of

the most talented running bakcs we’ve had here.” • UNSUNG HERO OF THE GAME: Junior wide receiver Devin Blakely had just one catch against the Golden Bears — but it proved to be huge. His 39-yard reception from senior quarterback Cody May helped set up Troy’s gametying touchdown, which would eventually send the game into overtime. • PLAY OF THE GAME: May and senior receiver Ian Dunaway have made careers out of hooking up for big plays — Saturday was no different. After Williams’ 3-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter cut Upper Arlington’s lead to 14-12, May connected with Dunaway on a two-point conversion pass, tying the score and sending the game into overtime. • AIR APPARENT: May completed 9 of 17 passes for 147 yards Saturday. For the season, he completed 85 of 158 passes for 1,277 yards, making him just the second quarterback in school history to throw for 1,000 or more yards in consecutive seasons. Troy legend Tommy

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Tony Stewart figures he has no need to issue any more verbal jabs in what has become quite a fight for the Cup title. Stewart raced to his second consecutive victory, and won for the fourth time in eight NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup races, finishing just ahead of points leader Carl Edwards in the socalled “Texas Title Fight” that fully lived up to its billing Sunday. “I’m pretty sure what we did on the race track said everything we needed to tell him today. I don’t know how you top that,” Stewart said. “The funny thing, I don’t feel like I have to say anything. I feel like I’ve already got it done.” After winning last week at Martinsville, Stewart got out of his car in Victory Lane and said Edwards “better be worried. That’s all I’m saying.” Now it appears to be a two-driver fight for the championship with two races left after they finished 1-2 at the 1-mile, highbanked Texas track. Stewart has his focus set on winning a third Cup championship, and becoming the first person not named Jimmie Johnson to win the title since 2005 when Stewart won while driving for Joe Gibbs Racing before becoming a driver-owner. “I mean we are set on it, man,” Stewart said. “This is just the way it’s going to be.” Stewart cut his points deficit from eight to three with an average speed of 152.705 mph, the fastest Cup race at Texas, and a 1.092-second margin over Edwards, the Roush Fenway driver going for his first championship. “He’s calmed down a little bit this week. It didn’t slow him down any,” said Edwards, the points leader for the fifth straight week. “I hope this roll doesn’t last much longer, otherwise this is going to be really tough.” The series returns next week to Phoenix, where the track has been reconfigured and resurfaced since Stewart was seventh and Edwards 28th there in February in the second race this season, and then to Homestead-Miami Speedway for the finale. Edwards won both races at the end of last season. Stewart led seven times for a race-high 173 of 334 laps, and more importantly stayed ahead of Edwards down the stretch.

to overcome. “We spend the whole week working on … things that you’re going to do and then both times you have to completely abandon that and get into something else because you’re down two touchdowns,” McCoy said. “We’re not

Bengals ■ CONTINUED FROM 16 fifth straight victory. The Bengals (6-2) last won five in a row in 1988 when they took the AFC championship and went to their second Super Bowl. They also improved to 4-1 on the road with the rookie quarterback leading the Bengals to 17 unanswered points as he tossed TD passes to three different receivers. “Our quarterback has done a nice job,” Lewis said. “It was loud out

there, louder than we expected. I think he’s done a nice job of handling that. He doesn’t get unnerved, he just keeps coming back and just playing.” Tennessee (4-4) has lost two of three to wrap up a three-game homestand. Chris Johnson had 110 yards from scrimmage, but the Titans blew a 17-7 halftime lead when the offense shut down in the second half. Tennessee managed just 95 yards in the final

■ National Football League

30 minutes with 30 on the final play that came up well short of the end zone. The Titans also held the ball just 4 minutes, 28 seconds of the fourth quarter in what coach Mike Munchak called a very disappointing loss. “We didn’t make a play the whole second half, and then the defense took their turn and we couldn’t make a stop,” Munchak said. Cincinnati came in with the fourth-stingiest

defense in the NFL, and the Bengals helped shut down the Titans in the second half. Carlos Dunlap had two sacks, and Nate Clements stripped the ball for the lone turnover. Clements forced Titans tight end Jared Cook to fumble at the end of an 8-yard gain to give Cincinnati the ball at the Tennessee 20 with 3:49 left. Mike Nugent kicked a 36-yard field goal for the final margin.

Tennessee got the ball back with one last shot, but struggled with two 10second runoffs and no timeouts. Lavelle Hawkins was tackled after a 30-yard gain to the Cincinnati 32 after time expired with Johnson nearby ready for a lateral. “I guess he just didn’t see me,” Johnson said. Now the Bengals head into the toughest part of their schedule two wins ahead of their total of last season. Cincinnati faces

the Steelers twice and the Ravens once in its next four games. “We’re at where we want to be now, and that’s in the thick of things in our division,” said Bengals rookie receiver A.J. Green, who caught seven passes for 83 yards. “We’ve got some division games coming up that are going to be tough, but I feel like this team right here is going to fight and compete in every game.”

Cleveland’s Colt McCoy scrambles during a game against the Houston Texans in Houston on Sunday.

Browns ■ CONTINUED FROM 16 Arian Foster rushed for 124 yards and Ben Tate ran for 115 and both scored touchdowns to lead the Texans. The Texans (6-3) finished with a franchiserecord 261 yards rushing. It was the first time the Browns allowed two 100yard rushers in the same game since the Baltimore Colts did it against them in 1956. The Browns (3-5) totaled 172 yards and McCoy was sacked four times and completed only 14 passes for 146 yards with an interception. “They came from the first snap to the last and it’s frustrating,” McCoy said. “But I have to keep hanging in there, keep fighting and we’ll overcome it.” He got little support from former Texas teammate Chris Ogbonnaya, who started in place of injured running backs Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty. Ogbonnaya fumbled on his first carry, and finished with 28 yards on 13 carries. “It hurts. I put us in a hole,” Ogbonnaya said of the fumble. “I can’t make those mistakes. I have to be better.” Browns coach Pat Shurmur said Hillis will undergo treatment Monday after aggravating his strained left hamstring on Friday. Shurmur said the Browns “have not discussed” putting the beleaguered Hillis on injured reserve, a move that would end his stormy season. Hillis, in the final year of his rookie contract, spoke publicly about negotiating a new deal. He missed a game with strep throat,

then was injured a few weeks later. Shurmur dismissed the notion that Hillis, who has missed three straight games, has become a distraction. “When a guy’s not there for whatever reason, and in Peyton’s case he’s injured, you move on,” Shurmur said. “I think our guys have been through this process before. As a coach I’ve been through it. So in this case I don’t think it had anything to do mentally with the team.” The Texans went up 7-0 when Tate weaved his way through the Browns’ defense for a 27-yard touchdown run on their first series. The Browns 25thranked offense was inept early, with Ogbonnaya losing the ball on Cleveland’s first play from scrimmage. Defensive end J.J. Watt recovered at the Browns 28, and Schaub scrambled for another score for a 14-0 lead less than 8 minutes into the game. Joshua Cribbs delivered Cleveland’s biggest play of the half, a 63-yard kickoff return. He was flagged for grabbing Brice McCain’s face mask, though, and the Browns settled for Phil Dawson’s 50-yard field goal. The Browns have scored only six points in the first quarter this season. Tate had a 9-yard run before Foster had a 19-yard touchdown with 8:06 left in the first half. Texans safety Quintin Demps intercepted McCoy on the second-to-last play of the half, setting up Neil Rackers’ 28-yard field goal that made it 24-3.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Miami Dolphins are no longer winless. Matt Moore threw for 244 yards and three touchdowns, Reggie Bush had 92 yards rushing and another score and the Dolphins walloped the Kansas City Chiefs 31-3 on Sunday. Moore, who took over after Chad Henne had season-ending shoulder surgery, became the first Dolphins quarterback since Chad Pennington in 2008 to throw three TD passes. Two of them went to tight end Anthony Fasano and another to Brandon Marshall, who finished with eight catches for 106 yards. The win by the Dolphins (1-7) leaves the Indianapolis Colts (0-9) as the NFL’s only winless team. Matt Cassel was 20 of 39 for 253 yards for Kansas City (4-4), which came into the game with a four-game winning streak. Falcons 31, Colts 7 INDIANAPOLIS — Julio Jones caught touchdown passes of 50 and 80 yards to keep Indianapolis winless. The Falcons (5-3) won their third straight and earned their first road victory in a series that dates to 1966. The Colts have lost five straight home games for the first time since 2001, and this defeat was every bit as lopsided as the score. Indianapolis gave up 14 points off two turnovers, failed to score on offense and did not produce a first down during a span of nearly 30 minutes. Jones caught three passes from Matt Ryan for 131 yards and two touchdowns in his return from a hamstring injury. The rookie also ran twice for 33 yards. Packers 45, Chargers 38 SAN DIEGO — Aaron Rodgers threw touchdown passes to four receivers, Green Bay returned two Philip Rivers interceptions for scores and the Packers withstood a wild finish to remain the NFL’s only undefeated team. The Packers improved to 8-0 behind Rodgers, who completed 21 of 26 passes for 247 yards. He has an NFL-high 24 TD passes. The Packers led by 21 points early in the fourth before Rivers threw two TD passes to Vincent Jackson in the span of 1:07 midway

San Diego had a final chance to tie it, but Charlie Peprah intercepted Rivers in the closing seconds and returned it 76 yards to seal the victory. Troy graduate Kris Dielman sat out the game with an injury. Giants 24, Patriots 20 FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Eli Manning hit Jake Ballard for a 1-yard touchdown pass with 15 seconds left, repeating a Giants’ comeback victory similar to the 2008 Super Bowl between the teams. The Giants won that one, 17-14, on Manning’s 13-yard scoring pass to Plaxico Burress with 35 seconds remaining. This time, it looked like the Patriots would win with a comeback of their own when Tom Brady threw a 14-yard scoring pass to Rob Gronkowski, making it 2017 with 1:36 to go. But the Giants (6-2) had enough time to move 80 yards on eight plays helped by a 20-yard pass interference penalty against the Patriots (5-3) that put the ball at the 1 with 30 seconds to play. Three plays later, Manning found Ballard in the back left corner of the end zone. 49ers 19, Redskins 11 LANDOVER, Md. — Frank Gore ran for 107 yards, and the NFL’s stingiest scoring defense forced three turnovers as San

Francisco ran its winning streak to six games. The 49ers improved to 71 and have their longest winning streak since 1997. They are also 4-0 on the road for the first time since 1992 and hold a commanding lead in the NFC West. Jets 27, Bills 11 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Mark Sanchez threw a touchdown to Santonio Holmes, and the Jets’ sturdy defense forced three turnovers in a key AFC East midseason showdown. Sanchez’s 8-yard pass to Holmes with 3:27 left in the third quarter helped blow open the game as the Jets (5-3) won their third straight and first on the road to move into a tie with the Bills (5-3). LaDainian Tomlinson also scored on a 1-yard dive in the second half, three plays after Jim Leonhard recovered Fred Jackson’s fumble. Cardinals 19, Rams 13 OT GLENDALE, Ariz. — Rookie Patrick Peterson returned a punt 99 yards for a touchdown in overtime to lift Arizona. Peterson, whose pass interference penalty moments earlier seemed to set up the Rams (1-7) for a game-winning field goal, fielded the ball at the 1. He evaded and bounced off tacklers over the next 30 yards or so, then outran everyone, striding the last few yards in celebration of his third punt return TD of

the season as Arizona (2-6) snapped a six-game losing streak. Arizona’s Calais Campbell blocked Josh Brown’s 42-yard field goal attempt as regulation ended to force the overtime. Broncos 38, Raiders 24 OAKLAND, Calif. — Eddie Royal returned a punt 85 yards for the tiebreaking score, Willis McGahee ran for 163 yards and Tim Tebow threw two touchdown passes. McGahee had a 60-yard touchdown run that tied the game on the first play after Carson Palmer threw his second of three interceptions for the Raiders (4-4). McGahee then added a 24yarder to ice it. The Broncos (3-5) didn’t allow the Raiders’ offense to generate anything in the fourth quarter and won for the second time in three games with Tebow as the starter. Saints 27, Buccaneers 16 NEW ORLEANS — Drew Brees passed for 258 yards and two touchdowns, and New Orleans running backs combined for 195 yards rushing. Brees’ scoring passes went for 3 yards to Lance Moore and 21 yards to Darren Sproles. Pierre Thomas added a tacklebreaking 9-yard score for the Saints (6-3), who saw their running game bounce back after gaining only 56 yards in a humbling loss at St. Louis a week earlier.

Dunaway finished behind Tommy Vaughn (703 yards in 1959 and 627 yards in 1960) and Bill Whidden (580 yards in 1972). • SHOE BUSINESS: A well-heeled former Troy football player made sure the Trojans were on solid

footing for Saturday’s game. Former Trojan Kris Dielman — now an All-Pro offensive lineman for the San Diego Chargers — donated new, top of the line Reebok turf shoes for the entire time as the Trojans played on the artificial turf at Upper Arlington. • WHAT WE LEARNED: Troy certainly proved it belonged in the playoffs, as the Trojans and Golden Bears played the closest game in Region 3. Had a few more plays gone the Trojans way here or there, Troy would be busy this week preparing to face Hilliard Davidson in the

Regional semifinals. After losing by two scores or more in each of its last two playoff appearances — 20-0 to Westerville South in 2004 and 24-8 to Pickerington Central last season — the Trojans turned in their best playoff performance in more than a decade. “We were right there the whole way,” Nolan said. “I don’t know that you could possibly find two more evenly-matched teams than what you saw. It was a fight the entire way. We just needed another break or two to go our way — unfortunately, we didn’t get those breaks.” This year’s senior class

has secure its place in history. It finished with 21 wins over the past three years — the most since the seniors on the 2000 team put together 22 wins over a three-year stretch. The seniors also earned back-toback playoff appearances — the first group to do that since the Dielman and Ryan Brewer-led Trojans made three playoff appearances in a row from 1995-97. This has to go down as one of the most talented senior classes of the Nolan Era, which stretches back to 1984. • WHAT HAPPENS NOW: With 21 seniors grad-

uating, the Trojans will go into a full rebuilding mode. Offensively, the Trojans lose May at quarterback, Dunaway at receiver, Craig Timms at tight end, Foster and Williams at halfback, Zach Jones at fullback and Ethan Hargrove along on the offensive line — a total of seven starters. Offensive linemen Seth Overla, Alex Dalton, Austin Eidemiller (all sophomores) and junior Cody Zeller all will return next season. Defensively, the Trojans lose Alec Sears, Ryne Rich and Quentin Vaughan from the defensive line, Zach Butcher and Chris Blair at

inside linebacker and Foster, Seth Lucas and Charles Hudgins from the defensive backfield — a total of eight starters. Only outside linebackers Ian Nadolny and Nick Zimmer (both juniors) and junior defensive back Seth Perdziola return. Hargrove, Sears, Butcher, Blair, Foster, Timms and Williams all were three-year starters. With so much talent leaving, this will be Troy’s biggest offseason rebuilding project since the 2000 team graduated a total of 13 starters on both sides of the ball.
