Anna man found guilty

One of the best Even when A.J. Green is closely covered, Andy Dalton doesn’t hesitate to throw his way and let the 6-foot-4 receiver try for a spectacular catch. Already, there’s a chemistry and trust between the Bengals’ top two draft picks. Cincinnati’s rookie combination is fast becoming one of the NFL’s best. They’ve connected for five touchdowns, the fourthhighest total through nine games for any NFL rookie duo since 1970, when the AFL and NFL merged. “These guys are not just ordinary rookies,” offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said. “These guys are special players and special athletes and special at their positions.”

Obama asserts U.S. a power Signaling a determination to counter a rising China, President Barack Obama vowed Thursday to expand U.S. influence in the Asia-Pacific region and “project power and deter threats to peace” in that part of the world even as he reduces defense spending and winds down two wars. “The United States is a Pacific power, and we are here to stay,” he declared in a speech to the Australian Parliament, sending an unmistakable message to Beijing.

Jackson Center High School junior Ashley Coe, right, checks Troy High School junior Courtney Murphy’s heart beat with a stethoscope Wednesday at Troy High School. Both are students in the medical technology program at the Upper Valley Career Center. They both were a part of the UVCC informational fair at the high school.

Getting a head start Upper Valley Career Center offers students opportunities BY DAVID FONG Executive Editor Courtney Murphy knows exactly what she wants to do with the rest of her life. “I’d like to be a labor nurse,” Murphy said. So rather than wait until she graduates from high school to attend college and begin her career, Murphy is getting a jump start through the Upper Valley Career Center — which, up until this year, was known as the Upper Valley Joint Vocational School. Murphy, a junior at Troy, is in the Upper Valley Career Center’s medical technology program, one of 26 programs the school offers. “I knew this was what I wanted to do, so this gives me a chance to

get experience,” said Jackson Center High School junior Ashley Coe, who also is studying medical technolgy at the UVCC. Murphy and Coe were two of the UVCC students putting on a presentation at a UVCC informational fair at Troy High School Wednesday during lunch. Troy sophomores with an interest in attending the UVCC next year were able to attend the event and see what the school has to offer. “It’s important for these kids to see the many things the Upper Valley Career Center has to offer,” said Troy guidance counselor Steve Nolan, who works with all Troy students who attend the UVCC. “They can gather as much information as possible and then be able to make

an informed decision. The UVCC really does offer a lot of opportunities for students that they may not know about unless this information was presented to them.” Upper Valley Career Center recruitment coordinator Andrew Snyder — a Piqua High School graduate — said many potential students aren’t aware of the vast opportunities the school provides. He said Troy was the final of the 14school barnstorming tour he’s been making since late October. “There are a lot of kids out there who really don’t know all the things we offer,” Snyder said. “Students at the Career Center spend half the day in labs getting real-world experience and half the day focusing on the same academics as students who attend high school all day.

An Anna man was found guilty of sexual battery in Shelby County Common Pleas Court on Tuesday. Whitfield “John” Farley III, 45, 624 W. Main St., Anna, submitted a plea of no contest to two counts of sexual b a t t e r y, felonies of the t h i r d degree. By pleading no contest, he was f o u n d guilty of FARLEY t h e counts. In pleading no contest, there will be no charges filed by the FBI in relation to this case and his charges in Miami County will be dismissed following the sentencing. Farley worked at Clear Creek Farms when he engaged in sexual conduct with a 17-year-old girl. He was originally charged with four counts of sexual battery in Shelby County and was charged with obstructing official business and contributing to the delinquency of a minor in Miami County. Those charges were filed after FBI agents exercised a

PIQUA According to the Farmer’s Almanac, Ohio may end up with a very white winter. The almanac is predicting that “a very active storm track will bring much heavier-than-normal precipitation from the Southern Plains through Tennessee into Ohio, the Great Lakes and the Northeast.” There’s really nothing new when it comes to preparing for winter weather or disasters, said R. Scott Miller, executive director for the Northern Miami Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross. “Things don’t really change in preparing for winter. There’s six basics that we encourage people to do, for home and car,” Miller said. These six basics include having water, food, clothing and blankets on hand for every person in your household, as well as a simple first

• CONTINUED FROM A1 Students can either take their academic classes at the UVCC, at their home high school or through Edison Community College in the post-secondary program. “Once they complete their time at the UVCC, they have two options. They can either attend a two- or four-year college or university — we offer all the same college prep courses as a high school — or they can take their skills and go


directly into their chosen career field.” Snyder said the hands-on training offered by the UVCC has proven to be a valuable resource — particularly in a down economy. The UVCC offers career training in agricultural and environmental systems, arts and communications, constructions technology, education and training, engineering and science technologies and health science. The UVCC also offers an apprenticeship program, which

helps with job placement. “We want to offer our students as many options as possible,” he said. Another thing Snyder emphasized was the fact many UVCC students continue to be involved in extra-curricular activities in their home schools — another common misconception about the school. “We want all of our students to be as plugged in to their home schools as possible,” he said.

“We still want them to wear their jerseys to school. At the UVCC, we have football players from Troy wearing their jerseys and sitting next to Piqua kids who are wearing their jerseys. Where else can you see that? It’s great.” Snyder said the informational fairs — this is the first year the school has put them on — have been a great success. “We’ve really been able to reach a lot of kids who may not otherwise know what we are about,” he said.

where to get it.” And in the car, even for a short trip, an emergency kit may make things go smoothly in case icy roads keep you from making your destination — or getting stuck in a snow drift. “A lot of it is common sense,” Miller said. “You may leave home that morning and it’s a fairly decent day, but you never know what’s going to happen.” The American Red Cross has put together a brochure with a list of items and tips on preparing for winter weather. These include: • Prepare a winter storm plan by having extra blankets, gloves, mittens, hats, coats and water-resistant boots for all family members. Assemble a disaster supply kit with first aid and essential medica-

tions, a battery-powered radio, flashlight and extra batteries. A NOAA weather radio also is suggested. Also include canned food and nonelectric can opener and bottled water. • Have your car winterized before winter. • Assemble a disaster supply kit for your car. Include the above items, as well as a brightly colored cloth (preferably red) that can be tied to the antenna for rescuers to see. Keep your car filled with gas when winter storms are predicted and travel is essential. Also to help prepare for the upcoming winter the Ohio months, Committee for Severe Weather Awareness recommends the following: • Prepare your home for winter. Cut and remove low-hanging and dead tree branches. Ice, snow and

strong winds can cause tree limbs to break and fall. Have your gutters cleaned. Snow and ice can build up quickly if gutters are clogged with debris. Have auxiliary heaters, furnaces and fireplaces maintenance checked or serviced before using. If using a portable generator, read instructions thoroughly to guard against carbon monoxide poisoning. Review your homeowner’s insurance policy; consider your need for flood insurance.

• Invest in a NOAA Public Alert/Weather Radio. Every home, school and business should have a tone-alert weather radio with a battery backup. Weather and public alert radios are programmed to automatically sound an alert during public safety and severe weather events. Click on for additional information. • Update your disaster preparedness plans. Every home, school, business and organization should have

written plans for the different types of disasters that can occur. Review the plans with the entire family or staff. Everyone should know what to do in the event of a snow or ice storm, a prolonged power outage, a flood or fire. Post contact information for your local emergency management agency. Prepare and practice drills that require sheltering in place and evacuation. Update your emergency contact list and establish a meeting place outside of the home, school or business, where others will know where to find or meet you.

Suspect in shooting near White House arrested Anna

• Stocks of local interest

WASHINGTON (AP) — A man with an apparent obsession with President Barack Obama has been arrested in Pennsylvania after the U.S. Secret Service, the presidential bodyguards, discovered two bullets had struck the White House while the president was away, authorities said Wednesday. One bullet smashed into a window of the living quarters of the executive mansion but was stopped by ballistic glass. The arrest of Oscar Ramiro OrtegaHernandez, 21, came days after reports of shots fired on Friday night near the White House while Obama

and his wife Michelle were on a trip to California and Hawaii. The president has since traveled on to Australia, second stop on a nine-day Asia-Pacific tour, and the White House had no comment on the unfolding events. The Secret Service said it discovered Tuesday that two bullets had hit the White House. U.S. Park Police had earlier linked Ortega, a 21-year-old man from Idaho Falls, Idaho, to the reports of gunfire. A U.S. Park Police crime bulletin issued before Ortega’s arrest said he is known to have mental health issues, adding “Ortega should be considered unstable with violent tendencies.”

Authorities are investigating his mental health and say there are indications he believed his attack on the White House was part of a personal mission from God, according to a law enforcement official. There also are indications the man had become obsessed with Obama and the White House, according to two officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation was continuing. Authorities said the bullets discovered Tuesday by the Secret Service have not been conclusively connected with the reports of gunfire near the White House on Friday night.

The FBI was involved because Farley, a parttime corrections officer, allegedly brought the victim from Wayne County, Ind., into the Miami County and Shelby County area.

EDITORIAL The Boston Globe on the American Dream: If young people deem the American Dream to be as relevant as Lawrence Welk, it’s a problem for a social contract built on the idea that each new generation will be more prosperous than the last. Sadly, every new study makes the economic plight of younger adults more apparent. Consider a recent Pew Research Study, which found the wealth gap between adults over 65 and adults under 35 to be at a stunning ratio of 47 to 1 — nearly five times what it was in 1984. Further, Pew’s research found that almost 40 percent of young people have either no net worth or negative net worth. This study comes on top of other data showing that over one in four recent college graduates is unemployed. It’s easy to blame this state of affairs on young people: They’re too coddled and feel too entitled; they’re too busy partying or playing video games or occupying Wall Street to focus on getting a job and contributing to society. But this explanation overlooks deep changes in the economy.

The court agreed to hear appeals from a ruling by the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, which struck down the individual mandate to buy health insurance but left other parts of the law standing. Opponents of the law contend that Congress went beyond its authority in the reform measure. But Congress, under the commerce clause, plainly has the power to regulate the national health care market. Almost everyone needs health care at some point, and if uninsured people are unable to pay steep medical bills they will get charity care that shifts the costs to others, whose insurance premiums go up to cover the cost of the free riders. There is no denying the health care market is interconnected and that individuals’ decisions to purchase insurance — or not — affects the whole system. Republican-appointed judges on two appellate courts have found the insurance mandate constitutional. They have cogently pointed out that past Supreme Court decisions have upheld federal laws that were much more intrusive on personal liberty and involved activities less clearly relevant to interstate commerce. The Supreme Court ought to show judicial restraint, adhere to precedent and uphold the constitutionality of health care reform.

Nolan much more than just a football coach Because I’ve always been concerned with proper diet nutrition, I once took a box of Twinkies to school for lunch my sophomore year in high school. And because even I can’t eat an entire box of Twinkies — although, on more than one occasion, I’ve certainly done my level best — there were several leftover once the lunch period ended. So I did what any normal sophomore in high school would do with leftover Twinkies. I went outside and started passing them around with my friends like they were tiny footballs. About halfway through our game of Twinkie football, a recently retired Troy football coach walked up to me. “Wow,” I remember thinking, “Steve Nolan has seen my passing skills and clearly wants to sign me up for the team. This is pretty much the greatest day of my life.” Without saying a word, he took the half-filled box of Twinkies from my hand and stalked off. “Wow,” I remember thinking, “this guy really does hate the forward pass!” That was my first — but cer-

David Fong Troy Daily News Executive Editor tainly not last — encounter with Mr. Nolan. While I’m certain he doesn’t remember that particular incident — it was, after all, 21 years ago — I’ve certainly never forgotten that day. At the time — being just a sophomore in high school — I being worried that I was going to be in big trouble. Knowing what I know about the man now, I’m thinking he probably had a good laugh about it later … while eating my Twinkies. Although he’s been at Troy for the better part of three decades, I’ve often felt there are very people who now the true Steve Nolan — and truth be told, I think he prefers it that way. Most people only know the Nolan they see on Friday nights at Troy Memorial Stadium — a gruff man, singularly obsessed with

putting the best football product possible out there on the field. They see a man who throws around words like they are manhole covers. They see his coach’s scowl and a glare that has been known to melt the resolve of even the biggest, meanest football players. They don’t see the same person those who work closest with him see. Most people don’t see the man whose dry wit has kept his assistant coaches in stitches for three decades. They don’t see the man who — after every game, win or lose — makes a bee-line to the sidelines to see his wife. They don’t see the Nolan who — after a devastating one-point loss to Piqua in 2005 — made a point to go over and give a big hug to one of Troy’s cheerleaders, his daughter Alyssa. The average Troy football fan has never seen Nolan at Kroger late on a Saturday night with his family’s shopping list. And I’m guessing most people in Troy never received a handwritten note from Nolan after the birth of their daughter. In 2004, just after my daughter Sophie was born, I received a note from him in the mail. The

note — written on Troy football stationary — was both congratulatory and cautionary in nature. “David, congratulations on the birth of your daughter,” it said. “I think you’ll find daughters are a blessing — most of the time. Enjoy all the little moments with your daughter.” It was one of the most heartfelt letters of congratulations I received — from a man who many assume has a life consumed with football. I received a number of cards and letters after Sophie was born — that one is at the top of the stack. I still pull it out and read it from time to time when my beloved daughter is testing my patience. Steve Nolan’s place in Troy football history is secure. He’ll long be remembered for his 200 wins, his league championships and his playoff appearances. The fact of the matter is, however, he’s much more than just a football coach. He’s a husband, a father, a grandfather and a friend. Even if he did steal my Twinkies. David Fong appears on Thursdays in the Troy Daily News

VERO BEACH, Fla. — Lucia Hobart Bravo of Vero Beach, Fla., passed away Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2011, at her home on the shores of the Indian River. She was born in 1922 to William Harrison and BRAVO Rachel Cahill Hobart of 80 S. Plum St., in Troy, Ohio. The second of four children, she was preceded in death by her sister Marcia Hobart Howell and survived by her brothers, William Harrison Hobart and Peter Cahill Hobart. Lucia and her husband of 56 years, Robert Barrett Bravo, had six children. The Bravos resided in Troy until 1996 at which time they moved to Hobart Landing in Vero Beach until Roberts passing in 2000. Lucia is survived by her daughters, Hylton Bravo Hard (Mrs. Lawrence E.) of Seattle, Wash.; Elizabeth Bravo Benson (Mrs. Peter A.) of Orchid, Fla.; Sylvia Bravo Larsen (Mrs. Robert M.) of Concord, N.H.; and sons Stephen Logan Bravo (Christie Dickenson) of Wolfeboro, N.H., and Alexandre Hobart Bravo (Martha Herrick) of Indian River Shores, Fla. She also is survived by 12 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Her son, Jonathan Cahill Bravo, preceded her in death in 2009. Lucia attended Troy schools through the ninth grade at which time she transferred to Miss Halls School in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. She graduated from Smith College in Northampton, Mass., with a degree in sociology. She married Robert in 1944 while he was serving as a pilot in the U.S. Navy. After World War II, Robert entered into a 45-year career with Hobart Brothers Company in Troy. Lucia was a tireless civic servant, earning her a place along with her husband in the Troy Hall of Fame in 2001. She served in leadership roles in: Club of Rome (past president), Garden Club of America (national program chair), Dayton Chapter Garden Club of America (past President), Dayton Museum of Natural History Board, Great Miami River Corridor, Troy Country Workshop Artists, Overfield Tavern Museum, Dayton Visual Arts, Dayton Art Institute, Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, Dayton Ballet, Junior League of Dayton, American Red Cross, Nature Conservancy (lifetime member), Brukner Nature

Center (past president), Ohio Highway Wildflowers planting initiative, Miami County Mental Health Board, Family Abuse Center, Troy Historic Society (charter member), Historic Troy (codeveloper and wrote the forward), Troy-Miami County Public Library Board, Troy Restoration and Development Board, Troy Beautification Committee, Trees for Troy, McKee Botanical Gardens (Board of Directors), Vero Beach Museum of Art (Education Board), Smith College Club of Vero Beach, Indian River Land Trust, Hobart Landing Home Owners Assoc. (past president), Miss Halls School (Board of Trustees), Girl Scouts of America (troop leader), Trinity Episcopal Church (multiple-term warden, Sunday school teacher and prolific contributor to the churchs newsletter, Trinity Topics), and the Trinity “Nearly New.” Lucia received many awards for her service, including the “Distinguished Citizens Award” from the Troy Chamber of Commerce, “Distinguished Citizens Award” (along with Robert) from the Troy Jaycees, the “Distinguished Service Award” from the Water Management Association of Ohio, and the “Outstanding Service Award” from the TroyMiami County Public Library. In the 1970s Lucia and Robert were instrumental in the refurbishing of The Brewery into a tavern and restaurant, and at the same time, the revitalization and reutilization of “commercial row”, the block from West Water Street to the Square with the intent toward a more aesthetically historic representation of downtown Troy. In 1996, during their transition between Troy and Vero Beach, Lucia and Robert had a deep desire to leave a lasting “thank-you” to the people and city of Troy. This resulted in their offering a matching seed fund to challenge and reward community involvement in the renovation of the Hobart Arena. Under the supervision of Charles Sharett, a dedicated board of fellow philanthropic Trojans, and the city of Troy, they raised more than $2 million. The newly modernized arena was dedicated on the 50th anniversary of its opening, culminating with a ceremony in which

BRADFORD — Paul D. Wintrow, 70, of Bradford, passed away Sunday, Nov. 13, 2011, at his home. Paul was born in Greenville on Dec. 17, 1940, to the late Delbert Ray and Mary Catherine (Grill) Wintrow. He was a U.S. Navy veteran; and retired from Hartzell Fan of Piqua. He was preceded in death by his parents; three sisters, Barbara Wintrow, Helen Pitsenbarger and Shirley Fitzgerald; and two brothers, Steve and William Wintrow. Paul is survived by his

wife of 46 years, Angela C. (Casey) Wintrow; son, Alan Wintrow and Donna Mishnick of Piqua; three daughters, Marie and husband, Lee Cost, Andrea and husband, Ted Draving, and Amanda Monnin, all of Bradford; six grandchildren, Kaitlyn Wintrow, Morgan Wintrow, Anthony Draving, Daniel Cost, Alexander and Emma (Davis) Cost and Lillian Monnin; greatgranddaughter, Adalee Cost; four brothers and sisters-in-law, Jack and Mary Alice Wintrow of

TROY — Joan L. (Ulrey) Baird, 65, of Troy, died Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2011, at Upper Valley Medical Center, Troy, following an extended illness. She was born July 21, 1946, in Lima, to Byron and Ruth (McCarty) Ulrey, who preceded her in death. Joan was a retired county coordinator for the Miami County WIC program. She was a member of the United Methodist

Church, and a 1964 graduate of Perry High School Allen County. Surviving Joan are her husband, Jack Baird; sons, Jason Baird of Tipp City and Jeremy and his wife Cindy of Myrtle Beach, S.C.; sisters, Sharon and her husband Dave McQuain of Williamsburg, Va., and Lynette Patraitis of Fair Oaks, Calif.; grandchildren, Cole, Carson, Chloe and Jackson Baird. A memorial service will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov.

Lucia was presented with a Key to the city of Troy by former Mayor Peter Jenkins. Lucia so enjoyed sports and the “great outdoors” that she involved herself in many activities, including canoeing, hiking, camping, tennis, golf, and skiing, and excelled in the Masters Swimming program in later life. Because of these interests she was a member and great supporter of the Miami County YMCA, the Troy Country Club, the Blue Hill Country Club, and the Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club. After a life-time of summer camps, prep schools, colleges and vacations in New England, Robert and Lucia purchased a summer home in Blue Hill, Maine. They and their children enjoyed long days filled with the many outdoor and cultural activities available in the area. It was a place and a time that Lucia and Robert both held dear and continues to be used by her children and grandchildren every summer. Lucias lifelong love of rivers led to her choice of living on the Indian River, and so it was appropriate that she passed from this life while looking out over the estuary and its ever-changing weather and teeming wildlife, all enacted under sunny skies, huge thunder clouds or a blanket of stars. Those who knew and loved Lucia will celebrate her life in the knowledge that she lived abiding by her philosophy to leave her communities, country and the world a better place.

Talk to her about the babysitting payments Dear Annie: A few years ago, my daughter was newly married and pregnant. Neither she nor her husband had a job, so both sets of parents took them in at various times and helped when the baby was born. My son-in-law went back to school and got a job, and they finally moved into a small house of their own. When my daughter decided to go to nursing school, we were delighted. Again, both sets of parents pitched in and took care of the baby. I also fed her family every day so they wouldn't have to spend money they didn't have. When she became pregnant again, we stepped back up to the plate and took care of their little newborn girl. My daughter now is an RN and makes great money. Her husband does decently, and they have a lot to be thankful for. When my daughter asked me to continue babysitting, I agreed, but only if I was paid. This really upset her, and she now won't let me see the kids. Her sister-in-law looks after them for free, but only for a few hours a day. My daughter works nights and doesn't get enough sleep in the daytime because she must attend to her children. Am I being selfish for wanting to be paid $400 a month for child care along with breakfast, lunch and dinner? -— Sad Grandma in Missouri Dear Grandma: This isn't about fairness, because you are certainly entitled to be paid for your services. But you have changed the dynamic between you and your daughter. You've turned babysitting the grandchildren into a business transaction. Not only was your daughter caught off-guard, but she obviously resents it. If you need the money, talk to your daughter about what she thinks would be appropriate, and see if you can work this out. If you don't need the money, we suggest you babysit when you are willing, without charge. Dear Annie: What can you do when your husband's driving is driving you nuts? Most of the time, he is OK, but the tailgating, speeding and unsafe lane changes make me nauseated, and the kids have thrown up more times than I can count. — Not a NASCAR Fan Dear Not a Fan: We assume you have told your husband how frightened you are by his driving. Many men equate reckless driving with manliness, as if they have to prove something. Tell him it's fine when he is in the car alone, but you would appreciate it if he would drive more conservatively when you and the children are with him. If he refuses, we recommend you drive yourself, get a ride from someone else, or take a bus, train or cab to your destination. He is placing his family at risk, and you do not need to indulge him. Dear Annie: "Wish There Was a Time Machine" said she missed her college days. Parents and students should not think of college as a four-year vacation from reality. The choice of school and major far outweigh the social advantages offered by college campuses. A college education is an investment in the student's future that, like any investment, could result in a financial and career disaster if not evaluated objectively. If there is any doubt about the student's readiness, it would be wise to enroll in a local junior college or regional state college campus. I suggest "Wish" re-enroll in a credible night school program and select a marketable major based on her likes, employability and chances of career success. The next time she starts feeling depressed and sorry for herself, she should go visit the children's ICU ward at her local hospital. Volunteering there would give her a dramatic shift in attitude with a complete loss of depression. — Crown Point, Ind.

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:


An easy roach-removal system Dear Heloise: Years ago, you published a recipe for GETTING RID OF ROACHES. It works wonders for inside the house and out (such as a toolshed). Because I have misplaced my copy, would you please print it again? It will really help others, too. — J.H., College Station, Texas This Heloise’s Boric Acid Mixture is one that my mother concocted in the 1960s. It’s cheap to make and yields great results. You’ll need: 1/4 cup shortening or bacon drippings

Hints from Heloise Columnist 1/8 cup sugar 8 ounces powdered boric acid 1/2 cup flour 1/2 small onion, chopped (optional) Water Cream the shortening and sugar. Then mix the boric

acid, flour and chopped onion together. Mix both well while adding just enough water so the mixture becomes soft dough. Shape the mixture into small balls and place in areas where you have seen the roaches. However, know that these will dry out rather quickly. Ideally, take the small balls and place them in plastic, open sandwich bags, which will help them keep longer. Check these often, because as soon as they are hard and dry, you will want to change them out with a fresh batch.

Please use CAUTION: Boric acid can be toxic, so keep away from children and pets. — Heloise EASY EXTRACTION Dear Heloise: I just read the hint for using doubled-over tape on a driver’s license. I have used small sticky-page markers for years — they do not gum up like tape, remove easily and are repositionable to side or top as needed. My wife and I use it in both our wallets, and we’ve had lots of comments. — Rudy B., Pleasant Grove, Utah



Thursday, November 17, 2011










HOROSCOPE Thursday, Nov. 17, 2011 Consider acquiring supplemental earnings from places other than your usual sources in the year ahead. They are likely to come from either a hobby or a new interest of yours. Don’t hesitate to try different enterprises. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Because you’re in tune with the world, don’t be surprised by the clout and influence you may find yourself having today. Press for that which could advance your ambitions. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Some good news that is coming to you from a distant venue is trying to break through. Be sure to check all the sources you use for acquiring information. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Two separate friends of yours, unaware of each other, are both engaging in something on your behalf today in hopes of being able to acquire what you’ve been craving. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Anybody who meets you for the first time will be favorably impressed. There is a strong chance you will acquire a new friend who will become a lifelong pal. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — A project you’re able to complete today is likely to give you a sense of accomplishment. But more importantly, someone whose attention you’ve been trying to attract may also notice it. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — It will become quite clear to you today that you are much more popular with your contemporaries than you ever thought. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Put on your thinking cap and check all the advertisements, because friends will be looking to you to come up with an event in which to participate. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — It might be left to you to avert an altercation between two friends who get into it today. Because you like both equally, you’ll know how to cool their hot heads. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — The little bits of money you’ve been squirreling away have finally added up to that whopping sum you need to get something you’ve been hankering. Go get it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Being a trifle restless and hard to get along with makes you a perfect candidate to spend some time with active friends who can put you in a happy mood. Don’t hesitate to do so today. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Because conditions in general tend to be far more favorable for you than usual, this is likely to be a perfect day to reap some nominal opportunities from some unexpected sources. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — If you’re someone who is presently unattached, this is a perfect day to get out and mingle. Members of the opposite gender will find you far more appealing than usual.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Thursday, Nov. 17, the 321st day of 2011. There are 44 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 17, 1911, the African-American fraternity Omega Psi Phi was founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C. On this date: • In 1558, Elizabeth I acceded to the English throne upon the death of Queen Mary.

• In 1800, Congress held its first session in Washington in the partially completed Capitol building. • In 1869, the Suez Canal opened in Egypt. • In 1917, French sculptor Auguste Rodin (roh-DAN’) died in Meudon at age 77. • In 1934, Lyndon Baines Johnson married Claudia Alta Taylor, better known as Lady Bird, in San Antonio, Texas. • In 1969, the first round of Strategic Arms Limitation Talks

between the United States and the Soviet Union opened in Helsinki, Finland. • In 1973, President Richard Nixon told Associated Press managing editors in Orlando, Fla.: “People have got to know whether or not their president is a crook. Well, I’m not a crook.” • Today’s Birthdays: Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., is 77. Rock musician Gerry McGee (The Ventures) is 74. Singer Gordon Lightfoot is 73. Singersongwriter Bob Gaudio is 70.

Countering China, Obama asserts U.S. a Pacific power


U.S. President Barack Obama, left, listens to Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard during a joint press conference in Canberra, Australia, Wednesday. opportunity. Speaking in broad geopolitical terms, the president asserted: “With most of the world’s nuclear powers and some half of humanity, Asia will largely define whether the century ahead will be marked by conflict or cooperation, needless suffering or human progress.” Virtually everything Obama is doing on his nineday trip across the AsiaPacific region has a Chinese subtext, underscoring a relationship that is at once cooperative and marked by tensions over currency, human rights and military might. China’s military spending has increased threefold since the 1990s to about $160 billion last year, and its military recently tested

Obama avoided a confrontational tone with China in his speech to the Australian parliament, praising Beijing as a partner in reducing tensions on the Korean Peninsula and preventing proliferation. “We’ll seek more opportunities for cooperation with Beijing, including greater communication between our militaries to promote understanding and avoid miscalculation,” he said. In a note of caution, however, he added: “We will do this, even as continue to speak candidly with Beijing about the importance of upholding international norms and respecting the universal human rights of the Chinese people.” With military bases and tens of thousands of troops in Japan and South Korea, the United States has maintained a significant military presence in Asia for decades.

All complaints will be heard by the Board of Revision after March 31, 2012, in the Miami County Auditor's Office.

largest trading partner, and the economies are deeply intertwined. Chinese leaders don’t want the economy disrupted when global growth is shaky and they are preparing to transfer power to a new leadership next year. Over the weekend while playing host to Chinese President Hu Jintao and other Pacific rim leaders at a summit in Hawaii, Obama said the U.S. would join a new regional free trade group that so far has excluded China.

a new stealth jet fighter and launched its first aircraft carrier. A congressional advisory panel on Wednesday urged the White House and Congress to look more closely at China’s military expansion and pressed for a tougher stance against what it called anticompetitive Chinese trade policies. The expanded basing agreement with Australia is just one of several initiatives Obama has taken that is likely to set Beijing on edge at a tricky time. The U.S. is China’s second

sion to what some Chinese commentators have called a new U.S. containment policy that features reinvigorated defense ties with nations along China’s perimeter, from traditional allies Japan and the Philippines to former enemy Vietnam, all of whom are anxious about growing Chinese power. China was immediately leery of the prospect of an expanded U.S. military presence in Australia. Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin said there should be discussion as to whether the plan was in line with the common interests of the international community. Responding to questions at a news conference Wednesday with Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Obama sought to downplay tension between the world powers. “The notion that we fear China is mistaken,” he said.


CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Signaling a determination to counter a rising China, President Barack Obama vowed Thursday to expand U.S. influence in the Asia-Pacific region and “project power and deter threats to peace” in that part of the world even as he reduces defense spending and winds down two wars. “The United States is a Pacific power, and we are here to stay,” he declared in a speech to the Australian Parliament, sending an unmistakable message to Beijing. Obama’s bullish speech came several hours after announcing he would send military aircraft and up to 2,500 Marines to northern Australia for a training hub to help allies and protect American interests across Asia. He declared the U.S. is not afraid of China, by far the biggest and most powerful country in the region. China immediately questioned the U.S. move and said it deserved further scrutiny. Emphasizing that a U.S. presence in the Asia-Pacific region is a top priority of his administration, Obama stressed that any reductions in U.S. defense spending will not come at the expense of that goal. “Let there be no doubt: in the Asia Pacific in the 21st century, the United States of America is all in,” he said. For Obama, Asia represents both a security challenge and an economic

CAUTION Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western 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.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green (18) goes up to catch a 36-yard touchdown pass against Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu (43) and safety Ryan Clark in the first half Sunday in Cincinnati.

One of the best Bengals’ Dalton and Green developing chemistry CINCINNATI (AP) — Even when A.J. Green is closely covered, Andy Dalton doesn’t hesitate to throw his way and let the 6-foot-4 receiver try for a spectacular catch. Already, there’s a chemistry and trust between the Bengals’ top two draft picks. Cincinnati’s rookie combination is fast becoming one of the NFL’s best. They’ve connected for five touchdowns, the fourthhighest total through nine games for any NFL rookie duo since 1970, when the AFL and NFL merged. “These guys are not just ordinary rookies,” offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said. “These guys are special players and special athletes and special at their positions.”

They may not get a chance to add to that touchdown total this weekend in Baltimore. Green hyperextended his right knee while making a 36-yard touchdown catch Sunday against Pittsburgh and sat out the second half. He was limping slightly on Wednesday and said it’ll probably be a game-time decision whether he plays against the Ravens. Both teams are 6-3. The winner moves into a first-place tie with idle Pittsburgh (7-3) in the AFC North. Green said he had an MRI that found a bruise. He lay on the field when he landed hard on his right leg Sunday after catching the ball in the end zone between two Steelers safeties.

“They say I dodged a bullet just a bone bruise,” Green said. “Everything looks good. Just time and rest, a lot of treatment and I’ll be fine.” He was one of nine Bengals held out of practice on Wednesday. Green doubts he’ll play if the knee feels the same as it did on Wednesday. Also, he’s concerned about making the injury worse. “If it takes one game to sit out, hey, it’s better than sitting out a whole season,” he said. Without Green, the Bengals’ passing game declined. There’s no one else that Dalton trusts the way he does Green, who showed from the first workout in training camp that he can adjust to the ball and catch it

Cleveland has no TDs in last two games BEREA (AP) — There’s a joke floating around Cleveland that goes: Why is Browns Stadium a safe place to go during a tornado? Because there’s never a touchdown there. Ba-dum-bum. It’s not that funny, but it’s somewhat true. Cleveland hasn’t scored a TD in two straight home games, a 131-minute drought dating to Oct. 2. Since Colt McCoy’s touchdown pass to tight end Benjamin Watson during garbage time of a 31-13 loss to Tennessee, kicker Phil Dawson has accounted for all 18 points scored at home by the Browns, who have gone 25 consecutive drives without taking the ball across the goal line. “It’s frustrating,” McCoy said Wednesday. “We spend a lot of time working on the red zone. We dedicated a whole day to it, so we’ve just got to find a way to get down there and punch it in.” The winless Indianapolis Colts are the only team with a current longer drought (29 drives) than the Browns, who made four trips inside the St. Louis 20-yard line last week but

OSU prepares to welcome, secure Penn State Woods, Stricker paired together David Toms is part of a trivia question that he doesn’t know about, if he even cares. Toms and Tiger Woods played a fourballs match at the Presidents Cup four years ago at Royal Montreal, and had no trouble beating Nick O’Hern and Geoff Ogilvy 5 and 3. It was the last time Woods played in a Presidents Cup or Ryder Cup match with anyone but Steve Stricker. See Page 16.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio State is going to great lengths to make sure its fans are on their best behavior when No. 21 Penn State comes to town on Saturday. There’s a short video on YouTube advising good sportsmanship, public messages from student leaders, notes on Twitter and Facebook, heightened security and assurances of safety from everyone from Athletic Director Gene Smith to coach Luke Fickell.

After the coin toss, players and coaches from both teams will meet at midfield and exchange handshakes in a show of sportsmanship and mutual respect. Penn State is still reeling from revelations 10 days ago that a former assistant football coach was charged with sexual abuse of young boys. Coach Joe Paterno was fired and the university’s president and athletic director also lost their jobs amid criticism that they did not do

enough to stop the alleged crimes. With Penn State (8-2, 5-1 Big Ten) visiting Ohio Stadium on Saturday to take on the Buckeyes (6-4, 3-3), many are counseling fans to be respectful to Penn State and its followers. As Ohio State student body president Nick Messenger put it: “It’s important to remember the victims of this tragedy. But it’s also important to remember that our visitors are not the people to whom we should direct our

anger.” Several Ohio State athletes appear on a 20-second video ( ) that had received more than 6,000 hits by Wednesday afternoon. In it, Aaron Craft and Jared Sullinger of the thirdranked men’s basketball team and football players Mike Brewster, J.B. Shugarts, Solomon Thomas and Evan Blankenship plead for fans to

Green is usually his best option. “If we can get him oneon-one or in a chance where he can out-jump some people, we will take that shot,” said Dalton, a second-round pick from TCU. “We will take our chances with that one. It has paid off for us a couple times.” Green, the fourth overall pick in the draft, proved AP PHOTO dependable during trainCincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton (14) ing camp, when he made passes under pressure from the Pittsburgh Steelers acrobatic catches routinely in the first half Sunday in Cincinnati. and out-jumped defenders

for the ball. Dalton trusted him on Sunday, lobbing a pass into the end zone even though Green was by Troy bracketed Polamalu and Ryan Clark. “It just starts from practicing, building that confidence he has in me that if the ball’s in the air, it doesn’t matter who’s on me, I’ll go up and try to make the play,” Green said. Both rookies are well ahead of the rest of their draft class. Green leads NFL rookie receivers in catches (41), yards (635) and touchdowns (six). Four of his

touchdowns have been on receptions of 35 yards or more, a sign of his ability to outrun defenders. Dalton has thrown 14 touchdown passes, the most by a rookie through nine games since the AFL/NFL merger, according to STATS LLC. Dan Marino and Peyton Manning had 15 touchdown passes after their 10th games. teams’ Manning set the rookie record with 26 TD passes in 1998. “I don’t think you put them in the same category that you put other rookies,”

Gruden said. Notes: CB Adam “Pacman” Jones’ non-jury trial scheduled to start Thursday morning in Hamilton County Municipal Court is expected to get pushed back. He’s charged with misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest for an incident at a downtown bar in July. Jones has pleaded not guilty. … Jones (groin), CB Nate Clements (knee), S Chris Crocker (knee) and Green were among the nine Bengals held out of practice on Wednesday.

He has gone through 16 partners since he first played in the 1997 Ryder Cup at Valderrama. For years it was somewhat of a mystery for various captains

trying to find the right fit for the guy who dominated golf. Woods thought he had his man in Jim Furyk when they went 2-0-1 in 2005 at the Presidents Cup, though that was the best of it. They were 2-2 in the Ryder Cup at The K Club in Ireland, then 1-1 a year later at

Royal Montreal in 2007. “The first match we played together in a Presidents Cup, I think together we either shot 9 or 10 under in a fourball and he was 8 under,” Furyk said. “So I went back to the team room and said, ‘I’m not sure why it’s so difficult to play with him for rest of you. It was pretty easy for me.’ They had some choice words for me.” It was U.S. captain Fred Couples who first hooked up Woods and Stricker two years ago at Harding Park. They once were represented by the same agent Mark Steinberg when he was at IMG and spent most of the FedEx Cup playoffs in the same group that year. Woods and Stricker became the first Presidents Cup tandem to win all four matches at Harding Park, and the first team in any cup competition in 30 years.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 show respect to Penn State’s players, coaches and fans. Ohio State isn’t providing any details about added security for the game. But Penn State interim coach Tom Bradley was promised that he and his team would be safe when they come to Columbus. “One of the things that coach (Fickell) wanted to assure me that every (step) would be taken for our safety and my players’ safety and we didn’t have to worry about that,” Bradley said. Before the Nittany Lions’ final home game last week against Nebraska, the teams met at midfield for prayer before the opening kickoff. Ben Jay, an associate athletic director at Ohio State, said extra attention would be paid to visitors on Saturday. “We have adjusted our

security plan for this Penn State game to specifically watch over and assist the Penn State football travel party from their arrival and departure in and out of Columbus,” he said in an email on Wednesday. “We have been in communication with Penn State officials this week and they have made arrangements for additional security at their team hotel. Although we would prefer not to detail what changes we have made, I can tell you that we will redirect our police coverage for their coaches, players and visiting fans to observe any potential trouble before and after the game.” Stadium ushers have also been told to be particularly attuned to how Penn State’s fans are treated, Jay said. It’s difficult for many, including the players, to think about a game with such upheaval and trauma in the recent past.

M E L B O U R N E , Australia (AP) — David Toms is part of a trivia question that he doesn’t know about, if he even cares. Toms and Tiger Woods played a fourballs match at the Presidents Cup four years ago at Royal Montreal, and had no trouble beating Nick O’Hern and Geoff Ogilvy 5 and 3. It was the last time Woods played in a Presidents Cup or Ryder Cup match with anyone but Steve Stricker. Woods and Stricker, a combined 6-1-0, will be together again Thursday when the Presidents Cup gets under way at Royal Melbourne, and the scrutiny figures to be as high as ever. They will be playing against an International team of Adam Scott and K.J. Choi, along with a fifth wheel Steve Williams, the caddie who now works for Scott, and who has made news over the last three months for disparaging Woods on national TV after Scott won at Firestone and with a racial comment in Shanghai at a caddies dinner. “I’m kind of glad that it’s going to happen, get it out of the way, and let the rest of the matches take care of themselves,” Stricker said Wednesday. “I think it will be good to just get that part of it out of the way. Stevie and Tiger have talked, so I think it’s kind of a nonis-

drought? Scoring touchdowns,” said Watson, doing his best to explain the deficiency. “How do you score touchdowns? Execution in the red zone. How do you execute in the red zone? Execution in practice. How do you execute in practice? Pay attention in the meetings. It goes all the way down. “It’s not a one-trick thing that just happens and you don’t just get lucky in the red zone. When you see teams score a lot of points, it’s because they’re precise, it’s because they make plays, it’s because stuff isn’t always open and they somehow manage a way to get in there. It takes a total team effort. And a lot of times it’s just that effort.” The Browns can’t score touchdowns early, late or often. Amazingly, they have not scored a TD in the first or third quarters of any game.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 came away with just four field goals by Dawson. It’s almost as if someone has posted a “Dead End” sign near the goal line. It’s not like the Browns (3-6) have had many chances, either. Cleveland has only had 18 possessions inside the red zone, the league’s second-lowest total. The worst figure belongs to the Jacksonville Jaguars (3-6), who will visit the Browns on Sunday in what on paper is shaping up to be a colossal dud. There are obvious reasons for the Browns’ scoring struggles. A new offensive system, injuries, a young quarterback and few dependable playmakers have contributed to Cleveland’s inability to reach the end zone. There’s been a trickle-down effect they can’t seem to stop or reverse. “How do you bust free from the touchdown

Graduates ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 “It must be,” said Donathan — a junior setter for the Tigers. To get there, the Tigers went through the No. 1 team in the nation — and the team that had knocked them out of the tournament each of the previous two season — Calvin College. Wittenberg toppled Calvin in four, 25-18, 19-25, 25-18, 25-10. In the match, Donathan had 27 assists and freshman teammate Meghan Vodopich had 17 to guide the offense. “We were just playing our game,” Donathan said. “We weren’t focused on them, what they were

doing or what they’d done to us before. We were just playing our game and having fun.” Calvin entered the match with a 33-0 record, but the Tigers scrapped and fought their way to the win. “They’ve got three AllAmericans, but we’ve got three All-Americans, too,” Donathan said. “We were out there playing with nothing to lose.” Now Witternberg, ranked No. 5, will face No. 17 California Lutheran at 8 p.m. Friday at Washington University in St. Louis to kick off three days of championship volleyball. “They’re very scrappy

and do not let anything drop,” Donathan said. “We’re taking this one game at a time right now. We’ve practiced and prepared all week just for them.” And while other teams might be feeling pressure, Donathan and company are going to enjoy the experience — and let everything else fall into place. “It’s pretty cool. We get to go to a banquet and get recognized the night before the match. The whole university is behind us,” Donathan said. “It’s awesome to get to this level. “I’m just hoping to soak it all in and enjoy this opportunity with my team-

mates, friends and family. I’m hoping — win or lose — just to have fun.” • Louisville Advances LOUISVILLE — Erin Yenney’s freshman year as a Louisville Cardinal is turning into a pretty eventful one. The Troy High School graduate — who has scored two goals, both game-winners, in her first collegiate season — and her new team won the program’s first-ever NCAA Tournament match Saturday, beating Dayton 2-0 to advance to the second round. The Cardinals (13-6-3) will travel to Memphis at 8:30 p.m. Friday to face the

fifth-ranked Tigers. Memphis boasts a 22-0-1 record on the season — and also will be enjoying their first trip to the second round. Yenney has started all 22 games for Louisville this season and has two assists to go with her two goals. Louisville is now 1-1-1 all time in the NCAA Tournament, falling in its last trip in 2007. • Strete Honored Before Tournament RICHMOND, Ind. — Troy High School graduate and Indiana University East volleyball middle hitter Breezy Strete was named to the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic

Gibson, Maddon voted Managers of the Year

United they stand Questions and answers to NBA lockout situation Now that the NBA players have disbanded their union and taken their labor fight with the owners to the courts, they have given up a considerable level of control in how the whole process plays out. Two groups of players have filed antitrust lawsuits against the league one in California and one in Minnesota in hopes of turning up the heat on the owners after negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement broke down Monday. So begins a seemingly endless series of court filings and back-and-forth responses written by lawyers in complex legalese that promises to go on for months, if not years, until the two sides are able to reach agreement on a new deal. Case in point: the NBA wrote a letter to the judge overseeing its pre-emptive lawsuit in New York on Tuesday arguing that the players’ decision to disband the union proves the league’s point that the union planned to do this all along. The players fired right back in their own letter, arguing that the decision should not stop U.S. District

Judge Paul Gardephe from dismissing the league’s lawsuit, saying the decision to interest was disclaim “uncertain until it was made.” “”The hope is that the magnitude of the uncertainty and complexity will cause both sides to come back and put aside the legal arguments and get back to talking about BRI and system issues,” said Gabe Feldman, director of the Sports Law program at Tulane. “The easiest way to get these lawsuits to go away is to agree on terms of a new collective bargaining agreement.” Meanwhile, impatient fans are making their voices heard. They have found a new definition of NBA saying it now stands for “No Basketball Anymore,” a phrase that was trending on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon. With that in mind, here is a look at what’s happening in the NBA labor fight and what could happen next. Q: What is the difference between disclaiming interest in the union and decertifying? A: Timing, more than anything else. Decertification is a more formal process that requires a petition being signed and a

waiting period of 45-60 days for the National Labor Relations Board to conduct a full vote of the rank-andfile union members. Disclaiming interest, on the other hand, is a much quicker means to a similar end filing an antitrust lawsuit. It is also easier to reform to a union, Feldman said, should the players need to band together again to approve a new collective bargaining agreement, as the NFL players did in their labor fight with the owners this summer. Q: So what is the difference between the labor cases of the NFL and the NBA? A: The biggest difference is the timing of the unions’ dissolution. The NFL’s union disbanded in March, almost six months before the 2011 regular season was

scheduled to start. The reason is the previous collective bargaining agreement stated that if the players remained a union through the deal’s expiration, they could not disband for six months. That prompted the NFL players to disband the union the day the agreement expired, which also gave both sides months to fight out the battle in court before games were jeopardized. There was no such clause in the NBA’s deal. The players continued negotiating with the owners through the summer and even after the first month of regular season games were canceled. The problem with waiting to disclaim interest, however, is that checks and games already are being lost while the fight enters the slow and deliberate legal system.

tainly not all because of me.” Maddon won the AL award for the second time. He was an easy pick after helping the Rays overcame a nine-game deficit to beat out Boston for the wild-card spot on the last day. It was the biggest rally any team had made in September to claim a playoff berth. “I like to think of it as a validation of the Rays’ way of doing things,” Maddon said during a conference call while visiting family and friends in Hazleton, Pa. Maddon led Tampa Bay to the playoffs for the third time in four years. After that, his name popped up in speculation about managerial openings with Boston, the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis. The Cardinals have already hired Mike Matheny. “I don’t want to have to go anywhere else,” Maddon said. The awards were by the announced Baseball Writers’ Association of America. The NL Cy Young winner will be revealed today, with Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers the leading candidate.

Surrounded by NBA basketball players, Executive Director of the National Basketball Players Association Billy Hunter, center, and NBA Players Association president Derek Fisher, second from left, speak to the media during a news conference after a meeting of the players’ union in New York on Monday.

NEW YORK (AP) — Kirk Gibson took a toughguy approach. So much so, he brought three Navy SEALs to spring training. The SEALs wrote D, W and I on a board. The letters stood for a sense of purpose, not a traffic offense: “Deal With It.” “They bought into it,” said Gibson, voted the NL Manager of the Year on Wednesday after the guiding the Arizona Diamondbacks to a worstto-first finish. Joe Maddon took a different tact. After Tampa Bay lost its first six games, he proclaimed with a great flourish that this team was the best 0-6 club in baseball history. “I think a lot of people are into the Rays’ style,” he said after being chosen the AL Manager of the Year. Gibson was a clear choice for guiding the Diamondbacks to a runaway NL West title. A former MVP as a rough-andtumble outfielder, he was honored in his first full season as a big league manager. “I certainly had a vision,” Gibson said during a conference call while on vacation in northern Michigan, adding, “It’s cer-

Raiders triumph, 56-39 FAIRBORN (AP) — Reggie Arceneaux scored 15 points and Armond Battle added 10 for Wright State in a 56-39 win over Jackson State on Wednesday night. Both teams shot poorly in the first half, as the Raiders (2-1) had the better effort with a 7-for-26 showing (26.9 percent) for a 17-14 lead at the break. The Tigers (0-3) shot just 3for-17 (17.6 percent) in the opening half. But Wright State figured it out in the second half, shooting 36 percent (9-for-25) and outscoring Jackson State 39-25 en route to victory. Jackson State won the battle of the boards 38-36, but turned the ball over 21 times. Wright State committed just 13 turnovers. Wright State’s bench outscored Jackson State’s 20-12. Jenirro Bush was the only player in double figures for the Tigers, scoring 15 points. No. 14 Wisconsin 68, Colgate 41 MADISON, Wis. — Reserve Ben Brust scored a career-high 17 points to lead No. 14 Wisconsin to a 68-41 win over Colgate on Wednesday night. Brust, a sophomore guard, scored 13 points in the first half, including four 3-pointers. The Badgers (20) were 8 of 14 from beyond the arc as they built a 4220 halftime lead. It was the second straight game in double figures for Brust, who scored a total of 10 points in 15 games as a freshman. He hit his second 3-pointer from 25 feet out in front of the Colgate bench, and his fourth on a pull-up from the top of the key when no Raiders defender met him as he brought the ball up. He shot 6 of 11 from the floor and made half of his 8 3-point attempts. No other player scored in double figures for Wisconsin, which finished the game 10 of 23 from 3point range. The Badgers hit 15 3s in their seasonopening win over Kennesaw State on Saturday. Preseason All-America point guard Jordan Taylor was 3 of 4 from long range and Berggren added another 3 in the first half for the Badgers, who also outscored the Raiders 16-4 in the paint before the break No. 25 Florida St. 79, Stetson 66 TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State’s deep and athletic frontcourt was simply too much for Stetson to overcome Wednesday night. Okaro White scored 12 of his 18 points in the second half, leading the 25thranked Seminoles to a 7966 victory over the Hatters. “We weren’t playing too good,” White said. “We started off good and let them come back, so I challenged myself to go out there, give it all I got and that’s what gave me that extra boost in the second half.” Powered by White and Bernard James, who had 15 points and 11 rebounds for his second consecutive double-double, the Seminoles shot 57.1 percent (32 of 56) from the field. Florida State (3-0) also got some timely baskets from Deividas Dulkys, who went 6 for 6 from the floor and finished with 16 points. Joel Narburgs scored 14 for Stetson (2-1), which went 10 for 33 from 3-point range. J.R. Weston and Chris Perez had 11 points apiece.
