UVCC unveils renovations A two-year, $25 million renovation project at Upper Valley Career Center was officially unveiled at the facility, 8811 Looney Road, Friday afternoon at a rededication ceremony and ribbon-cutting. The Ohio School Facilities Commission construction project used state funding to pay for 75 percent of the project and the remaining 25 percent came from a .46 bond passed by district voters in November 2009.

When crew members of this northbound CSX freight train saw the car on the tracks at the Union Street crossing in Troy, they threw their brakes into emergency but could not bring the train to a stop in time to avoid a collision with a Chevrolet SUV and dragging it about 1,000 feet.

Alcohol may have contributed to a sport utility vehicle being struck by a train early in the morning hours Friday on South Union Street. According to the Troy Police Department, the owner of the Chevy Blazer, Christopher Hancock, 29, of Williams Street, Troy, abandoned the SUV on the tracks and walked home.

TROY The train hit the SUV at approximately 4:50 a.m. Friday. The train struck the empty vehicle, dragging it from the Union Street crossing to the Railroad Restaurant on South Crawford Street. Capt. Joe Long said charges are pending against Hancock, who was found at his home. Long said police searched for a body along the tracks until Hancock was found at his residence on Williams Street.


Hair Trix salon opens TROY

Stylist picks Frank Street location BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer

Winner is ... Mormon church Stan Way, a Latter-day Saint from Jasper, Ala., had just finished dinner out with some Mormon missionaries when he noticed a car slowing as it approached. The missionaries were wearing the traditional white shirts and dark ties that identify them as Latter-day Saints. It was about a month before Election Day, when voters would decide whether Republican Mitt Romney, the first Mormon major party presidential nominee, would become the first Mormon president. The driver stopped and lowered her car window. “Hey,” she said, “it’s a good time to be a Mormon!” Then she drove off. See Religion,

Nestled between houses on Frank Street is a new hair salon offering a wide range of services at competitive prices. Hair Trix salon is owned by Melinda Storm, who has 15 years of experience in hair styling, including teaching classes at Miami-Jacobs Career College in Troy. Angel Burton, a student from her first year of teaching, helps run the salon. Services offered include haircuts — priced at $12 — perms, pedicures, highlights, relaxers, waxes, color and manicures. “We’re trying to keep the prices really reasonable with this economy. I want to make sure people can still take care of themselves,” Storm said. On Thursday afternoon, one of Storm’s former students, Caitlin Grote, was getting her hair curled for a professional photo session later with her brother for Christmas. Enhancing the beauty of clients such as Grote is what drives Storm in her field. “I like to make people feel good about themselves, and I like to be artistic,” she said. Burton urged Storm to start her own salon after her hours were cut back at Miami-Jacobs, where she teaches nail tech classes. In September, Burton found what she considered the perfect builiding at 116 S.

UVCC unveils renovated facility BY WILL E SANDERS Ohio Community Media

PIQUA of-the-art facility� that supports current and future career and technical training of business and industry in the region. “We need to prepare today’s students for the work of tomorrow,� Luce said. “That includes our programs, our equipment, our ways of instructing and our facilities. Otherwise, we will become obsolete. So today we are celebrating the support of our community and also the state of Ohio, who allowed us to complete this $25 million renovation project. Within these existing walls we now have a state-of-the-art facility and an infrastructure to support our mission.� Also speaking at the event was state Rep. Dr. Richard Adams, who was the first superintendent of the school. He also spoke at the ground-breaking at the facility nearly 40 years ago this month. Adams spoke of the importance of the facility and told the audience how it was a moment of which everyone should be proud. He called the renovation a great example of a “good school becoming even better� and said how important facilities like UVCC

Hostess moves to liquidate after crippling strike YORK (AP) NEW Twinkies may not last forever after all. Hostess Brands Inc., which makes Ding Dongs, Wonder Bread and other snacks, filed a motion Friday with U.S. Bankruptcy Court seeking permission to shutter its operations. The move comes after the company said striking workers across the country crippled its ability to maintain production. The closing would mean the loss of about 18,500 jobs. The company said employees at its 33 factories were sent home and operations suspended Friday and its roughly 500 bakery outlet stores will stay open for several days to sell remaining products. Hostess CEO Greg Rayburn said in an interview that there was no buyer waiting to buy the company. But without giving details, he said that there has been interest in

some of its 30 brands, which include Dolly Madison, Drake’s and Nature’s Pride snacks. Rayburn said the financial impact of the strike makes it too late to save the company even if workers have a change of heart. That’s because the company was operating on thin margins and stalling production meant the loss of critical sales. “The strike impacted us in terms of cash flow. The plants were operating well below 50 percent capacity and customers were not getting products,� Rayburn said. Hostess, based in Irving, Texas, filed for Chapter 11 protection in January, its second trip through bankruptcy court in less than a decade, as it struggled with increased competition, Americans’ move toward healthier eating and the high pension, wage and medical costs related to its unionized workforce.

Guilty • Continued from 1 Gee rendered the verdicts Friday morning after Polhamus took his case to trial on Wednesday. Authorities arrested Polhamus on April 18 at his property, located at 5345 E. U.S. Route 36, east of Fletcher, while serving a search warrant and seized several semi tractors and at least one vehicle, in addition to a firearm and several financial documents The Miami County Sheriff ’s Office executed the search warrant after gaining information that

a semi on the property was reported stolen out of Coman County, Texas. The semi tractor was initially impounded after inaccuracies were found with the vehicle’s VIN number, according to the sheriff ’s office. Polhamus, who runs C&P Transportation, was convicted of similar crimes in 2004 and was sentenced to three years in prison. In that case, Polhamus was convicted of engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity and conspiracy to engage in corrupt activity, both felonies.

are now in this economy. “We needed it then and we needed it now,� Adams said of UVCC’s vital role. The two-phase project began last year with the construction of an 8,000square-foot permanent swing space that consisted of 12 classrooms, which allowed students an alternative to temporary trailers used in some school construction projects, while the main building was renovated, school officials said. The renovation included major upgrades to the career center, which included heating and cooling, lighting, technology infrastructure, plumbing and

life safety. Also added was a new roof, internal walls and flooring, which all were in need of replacement. School officials said the “enormity of the task was compounded by the necessity to work 10 to 16 months with students and staff learning and working amongst the construction.� The project even came complete with a new restaurant being added to the site, which was created by moving the culinary arts restaurant to the front of the building. The restauis called The rant Cornerstone @ 8811. It opened Nov. 9 and includes extra parking and an outdoor dining patio.

• Continued from 1 Walter’s desk drawer, a Dell computer and several files from the office at 1400 Experiment Farm Road. According to the statements included in the search warrant, the investigation began in early October when the Troy Police Department was contacted by Billy Ray of the auto title department. Ray said he had spoken to a subject who worked at the Miami County garage who told him he had been in contact with an employee at the city garage. The employee had commented that the amount or scope of thefts at the city’s garage “would make the problems Miami County was having with Mr. Jarrod Harrah look insignificant.â€? Harrah, former Miami County maintenance director, recently was sentenced to one year in prison for theft in office, tampering with records and tampering with evidence — all thirddegree felonies. An anonymous employee told detectives scrap metal from the city garage was deposited at Urban Elsass and Son in Piqua and Walters allegedly was pocketing the payments, which were made in cash. Police detectives spoke with Urban Elsass managers, who were able to produce copies of all the receipts the company had on file dating back to July 2011. The 20 receipts all were made out to the city of Troy for approximately $4,517.30 through October 2012.

City auditor John Stickel confirmed with detectives that no paperwork to support any cash deposits by the city garage management was submitted during the same time frame. According to a statements made by “Employee #1,� scrap metal would go to the scrap yard in Piqua approximately eight or nine times a year, including several truckloads at a time. Scrap metal included city property such as manhole covers, catch basins, water meters, light poles, road signs and broken snow plows and salt boxes. “Employee #1� said they were always paid in cash and instructed to give it to the foreman who would, in turn, hand it over to Walter. “Employee #1� said the city garage employees needed extra money to buy pizza for a party for the 2011 summer help crew. He said he witnessed Walter produce an envelope from his desk with a substantial amount of cash to pay for the summer help pizza party. Since that incident, “Employee #1� began marking all the $50 and $100 bills brought back from Urban Elsass. “Employee #1� said he saw one of the marked bills pay for items for the garage on at least one occasion. On Oct. 30, detectives spoke with “Employee #2� who reiterated what “Employee #1� had witnessed. “Employee #2� said he would take the cash and receipt from Elsass and hand it to the foreman, which usually added up to

$200 cash every time he hauled a load of scrap to the facility. “Employee #2� also added he saw the secretary of the facility receive a “cash bonus� from Walter and it was with the marked bills. Both employees referred the detectives to another individual in reference to two Jeeps that were purchased at a city surplus auction by Walter. According to the warrant, Walter may have had work performed on the vehicles prior to the sales before Walter purchased them. “Employee #2� also referred detectives to a another individual about the scrap metal arrangements. Titterington said since it was an active investigation and no charges had been filed as of Friday, the city believed it was best to place Walter on paid administrative leave and remove him from the building “in everybody’s best interest.� Titterington said he has met with city officials and briefed them about the investigation and the city would immediately begin to “tighten up cash handling policies.�

Trot out for exercise Run at Kyle Park on Thanksgiving morning BY JOYELL NEVINS Ohio Community Media


Kicking off Thanksgiving with a little exercise just got easier. The annual Tipp Turkey Trot is moving from a local neighborhood to Kyle Park this year. The Turkey Trot started five years ago when Kelly and Jennifer Perrault, both “fairly active” individuals, felt that the Miamisburg Turkey Trot was too far away. So, according to Jennifer, they thought “let’s run together here.” Through word of mouth, 25 people showed up at their garage Thanksgiving morning. They coned off a 10K loop through the

neighborhood, started with a prayer, and took off. The Trot has grown to upwards of 65 people and a host of avid runners. Rather than run the neighborhood route several times and trying to fit that many people in their driveway, the Perraults have moved the race this year to the bike path at Kyle Park. The course will include a 5K, 10K and half-marathon length and water stations have throughout. “It’s low-key, really fun, and no pressure,” Jennifer said.

While there is no registration fee, the Perraults are encouraging either monetary donations toward Ginghamsburg Church’s Sudan Project, or canned goods for Ginghamsburg’s New Path Ministry. “If you give something, it just makes your heart feel bigger,” Jennifer said. The Tipp Turkey Trot is Nov. 22, with registration starting at 7:30 a.m. and the run beginning at 8. Anyone is welcome, but Jennifer requests RSVPs by Nov. 21 so they know how many to expect. Email her at or stop by the Curves in Troy, 2309 W. Main St.

Procter & Gamble plans more job cuts NEW YORK (AP) — Consumer products giant Procter & Gamble Co. said Thursday it plans to cut more jobs and increase share repurchases as it works on its turnaround plan to focus on its most profitable categories and countries. The news comes as the company holds its annual analyst meeting in Cincinnati, and as P&G faces increasing investor pressure to improve its results. The maker of Tide detergent and Gillette razors P&G says on top of its already announced plan to cut 10 percent of its nonmanufacturing jobs, or 5,700 jobs, by the end of its fiscal year in June 2013, it

plans to continue to reduce its non-manufacturing jobs by 2 percent to 4 percent between 2014 and 2016. It will continue to hire in other areas, however. P&G also said it now expects to buy back $4 billion to $6 billion of its shares. Previously it forecast $4 billion. P&G has admitted to missteps in pricing and in balancing growth in emerging markets, which account for about 38 percent of its sales, amid an uncertain global economy and lackluster market share growth overall. In May, P&G announced a plan to focus on its 40 top businesses, 20 biggest new products and 10 most profitable emerging markets,

as it is undergoes a costcutting plan aimed at saving $10 billion by fiscal 2016. The pressure is on since activist investor William Ackman, known for agitating for change in companies he has a stake in, has disclosed that he has a 1 percent stake in the Procter & Gamble. P&G affirmed its forecast for the fiscal second quarter and fiscal year. It predicts second-quarter adjusted core earnings of $1.07 to $1.13 per share with revenue ranging from down 1 percent to up 1 percent, implying revenue $21.88 billion to $22.32 billion. Analysts expect net income of $1.11 on revenue of $21.81 billion.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Brunswick (Ga.) News on disaster preparedness: It’s human nature: never do today what can be done tomorrow, next week or next month. But human nature or not, it’s an attitude that can be costly — even life-ending. The nation woke up to that reality, once again, in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Ill-preparedness, indifference and foolish, foolish bravado has claimed the lives of dozens of Americans to date. And the death toll continues to climb. One would be inclined to think that after Hurricanes Hugo, Andrew and Katrina that the citizens of this nation — the most advanced country in the world with eyes in the sky that can see these dangerous storms the very instant they form — would be readier than anyone for landfall of these Atlantic monsters. The country is not, though. Despite plea after plea from emergency officials, from men and women who are experts in the field, the nation is still not bracing properly for the potential consequences of high winds and rising water. The nation needs to take notice of the devastation these mega-storms can cause, both to property and to lives. And for once, act like the intelligent beings Americans are supposed to be. Take all precautions necessary and listen to the advice of experts. The Boston Globe on Obama’s second term: After billions of dollars in campaign ads and rallies across the nation, the voters of the United States chose to reinstall the same president and congressional leadership that had presided over two fractious and difficult years. For Barack Obama, who had to face an electorate bruised by a slow-recovering economy, re-election is a personal triumph, a show of faith in his leadership under conditions that would have defeated many incumbent presidents. But this was a status quo election in result only. With both presidential candidates and many victorious congressional candidates expressing a desire for bipartisan solutions, the message from the ballot box was clear: Obama and Congress need to work together, immediately, to avoid the upcoming “fiscal cliff” involving the expiration of the Bush tax cuts and automatic spending cuts to defense and other important programs The president should draw strength from his victory. But he knows his work, and that of Congress, must begin immediately. His second-term agenda can’t wait until the beginning of his second term. Khaleej Times, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on aid vessel uproar: The aid flotilla is back in news. Turkey’s resolve to try Israeli commandoes in absentia for the deadly raid they carried out in the high seas against its aid vessel could trigger severe repercussions. The attack on the vessel Mavi Marmara in 2010, which was sailing towards Gaza to break its blockade, resulted in the killing of nine Turkish activists. The incident led to a rupture of ties between Turkey and Israel but stopped short of a full-blown crisis. But, it seems, the move on the part of a court in Istanbul to try the ex-Israeli military officials tactfully enjoys endorsement from Ankara for reasons best known to it, especially in an era when geopolitical environment is tense owing to the upheavals in its neighborhood, Syria. It is, however, unclear what impact it will have in the real sense on the accused even if a Turkish court finds them guilty, and sentences them. Will the arrest warrants’ issued in Istanbul make any heads roll in the Israeli establishment? Certainly, not! … The Israeli stance that its commandos acted in self-defense after they came under attack by Turkish activists on the boat is a twisting of facts. Had it been so then what prevented Israel from becoming a part of the probe that the international community wanted under an unbiased forum? Moreover, Israel’s new contention that it is eager to thrash it out across the table to address the issue is also no more than a ploy, as it had resisted all endeavors from Turkey to seek remedy and justice during the last two years. Ankara has legitimate grounds to go ahead with the indictment and build world pressure to bring the culprits to book.

A story of things that grow bumps in the night When you become a parent there are a lot of things you know are coming your way. You know about the sleepless nights. You know about the crying, the eating and the pooping. Oh, and you know that your baby does all those things too. But knowing you’re headed for these things is a lot different than being in the actual trenches; knowing about them isn't the same as only getting four hours of sleep and changing 15 diapers a day. It’s a lot different. Sure, every parent likes to pretend that they’re doing such a phenomenal job raising their baby and giving them only the best, most healthy products, but eventually, germs are going to get to your little one. It’s a part of life. In fact, I’m pretty sure there’s a good reason there’s no “child who went the longest without getting sick” category in the Guinness Book of World Records — because guess what, kids, they get sick — a lot. In Pearyn’s first year of life, we remained relatively unscathed. While I heard horror stories from friends about how they spent

Amanda Stewart Troy Daily News Columnist hours in the emergency room for croup, scary high fevers and other odd ailments, we battled our fair share of colds, allergies and a little fever here and there. In fact, I don’t think we really dealt with throw up until she entered her terrible twos. Little did we know the terrible twos for Pearyn didn’t solely encompass the diva attitude she’s developed, but also a handful of illnesses that left us and even the doctors scratching their heads (and hands, in the most recent case). In July, our baby girl turned 2 and we faced what we deem the summer plague of 2012 for nearly all of July and August. We faced weeks upon weeks of a sickness that we couldn’t seem to get rid

of, one that even drove us to the emergency room while vacationing in Hilton Head with our best friends. Our little girl was sick. Really, really sick. You may or may not recall what that plague ended up being, after weeks of being told it was this or that. It started off with some vomiting, no fever, no loss of appetite, just some vomiting. We were told it was a stomach flu, it would pass, just to keep her hydrated. When it didn’t pass we were told it was reflux. And when it still didn’t pass, car sickness. Finally, after spending a night in the emergency room and a partial bowel obstruction later, we found out our little girl, our little, never-had-a-piece-of-meator-dairy in her life girl, had salmonella poisoning — from, get this, cantaloupe. She got medicine and she finally got better. It was a really long road to recovery and she had lost nearly five pounds over the duration of that ailment. And as if salmonella wasn’t bad enough, last week we noticed a disturbing trend when our daughter settled into sleep. She’d

wake up rubbing her hands together, kind of like she was trying to start a fire, or in my sleepdeprived mind, kind of like she was possessed and summoning an evil spirit. After chalking it up to sweaty, itchy palms, we noticed the little bumps. The kind you can’t really see unless the light hits your hand the right way. And I probably would have been more bothered by the bumps had I not seen them many times before, on my mother’s hands. Pearyn’s bumps she grew in the night turned out to be eczema, a skin condition that usually runs in families and either affects a child’s face and trunk or their hands and feet. If her hands get too wet or sweaty, she gets itchy little bumps all over. Luckily, there is medicine for it. However, the act of trying to keep said medicine, a cream, on our toddler’s hands is a whole new mystery to us. Amanda Stewart appears Saturday in the Troy Daily News. She’s crossing her fingers that the threes are terrific!

Always a battleground state Ohio was crucial politically for Lincoln, too CINCINNATI (AP) Long before Mitt Romney and Barack Obama wrestled over Ohio, it was also a crucial political battleground state for Abraham Lincoln. So much so that when he received word of the results of the state’s 1863 elections, Lincoln said in a message: “Ohio has saved the Nation.” “Ohio was almost a civil war unto itself,” said historian William B. Styple, whose latest book focuses on a Cincinnati politician who was an influential aide to Union Gen. George B. McClellan, who ran against Lincoln in 1864. “There was a lot of turmoil in that state.” Ohio was home to some of the Union’s most successful generals, led by Ulysses S. Grant, William T. Sherman and Philip Sheridan, as well as Lincoln’s secretary of war, Edwin Stanton, and treasury secretary, Salmon Chase. Lincoln brought Chase into his Cabinet after the former Ohio governor lost his bid for the Republican nomination in 1860 to Lincoln, as recounted in Doris Kearns Goodwin’s best-selling book “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln.” Much of Stephen Spielberg’s new “Lincoln” movie, opening widely Friday, is drawn from the book. But Ohio also was a home to McClellan, his adviser Col. Thomas M. Key, and other critics of Lincoln such as former U.S. Sen. William Allen and Rep. Clement Vallandigham. Vallandigham would lead the stridently anti-war “Copperhead” movement. Many Ohioans, especially along the river, had roots, relatives and friends in Virginia or other parts of the South, and considered the issue of slavery a matter of states’ rights. And even after Southern states seceded and Confederates shelled U.S. troops at Fort Sumter, S.C., there were differences in Ohio over the goals of going to war. Historians say that some Ohioans worried the state would be flooded with newly freed slaves if the war resulted in emancipation, that there was sometimes-violent opposition to the federal army draft, and

ing once going to bed while Lincoln sat expecting to see him. Lincoln grew impatient with McClellan for other reasons the general’s cautious approach to the war and failure to pursue Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee’s army after the bloody 1862 battle of Antietam in Maryland. Styple was researching a biography of his New Jersey hometown’s namesake Union Gen. Philip Kearny, killed in another 1862 battle when he found letters and accounts that led to his interest in Thomas Key. Kearny wrote that McClellan or others with him were “devising a game of politics, rather than war.” Styple’s book, “McClellan’s Other Story,” suggests that Key, serving as McClellan’s “confidential aide,” had unauthorized talks with Confederates and was more interested in protecting McClellan’s political ambitions than crushing the Confederate army. During the war, Lincoln worried about what he called “the fire in the rear” opposition within the North. Vallandigham led Peace Democrats, or Copperheads, in Ohio, denouncing “King Lincoln” until he was finally arrested and exiled by Lincoln to

the South. He made his way to Canada and was the Democrats’ nominee for Ohio governor in 1863. Chase, Lincoln’s treasury secretary and former Ohio governor, returned to Ohio to campaign for the pro-Union candidate John Brough, Goodwin writes. When Brough won in a landslide, Lincoln wired his congratulations: “Glory to God in the highest. Ohio has saved the Nation.” McClellan jumped into politics as the 1864 Democratic presidential candidate, with Cincinnati Congressman George Pendleton as his running mate. Union battlefield victories including the Sherman-led capture of Atlanta rallied support for Lincoln in the North and among the troops, and he handily carried Ohio with 56 percent of the vote in his re-election. Lincoln thus kept up what would become a historical trend that he began when elected the nation’s 16th president in 1860 that a Republican presidential candidate has never won the White House without winning Ohio. That trend continues today, after Republican nominee Romney’s loss to Democrat Obama in Ohio, a state both sides made a focal point of their 2012 campaign.

OSU picks apparel, retail partners COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio State University said apparel partnerships announced Thursday with sportswear company J. America and online retailer Fanatics Inc. guarantee $97 million for scholarships and student groups over the 10year agreement. The announcement comes as the school plans to phase in a new business model for Buckeye clothing and headwear. The new model is meant to stabilize a funding base that has been used for hundreds of scholarships for studentathletes and an endowment to support student organizations. The partnerships include an upfront payment of $23 million and expand the school’s existing relationships with the companies. Webberville, Mich.based J. America is an Ohio State licensee; Jacksonville, Fla.-based Fanatics already operates an online store for the athletics department. Ohio State said the companies were chosen in a


CLEVELAND (AP) — Operators say the first of Ohio’s four new casinos has had more than 2.6 million visitors during its first six months of operation. The Horseshoe Casino Cleveland opened in May at the old Higbee department store with the promise of a tax windfall and jobs for about 1,600 employees. The head of the Cleveland’s marketing and tourism agency says the casino developers have followed through on a promise to incorporate other city attractions and promote local tourism. The downtown casino has nearly 90 table games, 1,900 slots and a 30-table poker room. Developers say the casino plans to add two dozen more table games.


In this Oct. 1, 2006, file photo, author William B. Styple poses next to the grave of Civil War artist-writer James Edward Kelly at a cemetery in New York. Styple’s latest book, “McClellan's Other Story,” focuses on the role of a Cincinnati politician as adviser to Union Gen. George McClellan, who ran against Abraham Lincoln for president in 1864. Long before Mitt Romney and Barack Obama wrestled over Ohio, it was a political battleground state for Lincoln. that others simply thought there should be more efforts at peaceful compromise. “If you were on the north side of the (Ohio) river, in real time, during that war, you would have found a very, very deeply divided populace,” said University of Cincinnati history professor and author Christopher Phillips. Ohioans contributed to the Union Army in high numbers, and McClellan, Philadelphia-born but a Cincinnati resident who was Ohio’s militia commander, led some of the Union’s first successful engagements of the war. Lincoln soon put him in command of the Army of the Potomac, which McClellan helped build up and train. But McClellan, who warned that emancipation of slaves would undermine the Union effort, and Key, a Kentucky-born judge and lawyer in Cincinnati, were Democrats who had supported Stephen Douglas for president against Lincoln in 1860, Styple writes. Historians say McClellan privately referred to Lincoln as “a gorilla,” and Goodwin’s book has accounts of McClellan keeping the president waiting, includ-

competitive process. “This new partnership enables the university to protect and enhance the royalty revenues that support student success, continue its commitment to growing business in Ohio, and demonstrate leadership in socially responsible business practices,” Jeff Kaplan, senior vice president, said in a statement. J. America will manage production and distribution of Ohio State apparel and guarantees the university $85 million over 10 years. Fanatics guarantees $12 million, keeping the online store and managing retail sites. It also plans to open a new distribution center offering about 300 full-time jobs in Frazeysburg, about 55 miles east of Columbus. J. America, founded 20 years ago, said it also plans to establish a campusbased design center and showroom with 14 new jobs and an estimated payroll of $1.3 million annually. Kaplan said the deal will reduce the number of

factories making Ohio State apparel from as many as 800 to about 20. He said there will be losers Ohio vendors that might lose contracts but the amount of revenue and business for Ohio companies overall will increase. He wouldn’t speculate on what Ohio companies might lose business, except to single out what he called “low-quality sidewalk vendors that have a $2.99 Tshirt that you put on a second time and it rips.” Apparel constitutes about two-thirds of Ohio State’s $9 million in annual revenue from trademarks and licensing. Students have protested over the possibility of a contract with the merchandising arm of the Dallas Cowboys, alleging it would support sweatshop labor. Rob Battista, a regional organizer with the group United Students Against Sweatshops, didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment Thursday.

And the winner is ... the Mormon church BY RACHEL ZOLL Associated Press Stan Way, a Latter-day Saint from Jasper, Ala., had just finished dinner out with some Mormon missionaries when he noticed a car slowing as it approached. The missionaries were wearing the traditional white shirts and dark ties that identify them as Latter-day Saints. It was about a month before Election Day, when voters would decide whether Republican Mitt Romney, the first Mormon major party presidential nominee, would become the first Mormon president. The driver stopped and lowered her car window. “Hey,” she said, “it’s a good

time to be a Mormon!” Then she drove off. “We stood there in shock,” Way said. “That usually doesn’t happen in Alabama.” The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has entered a new era after Romney’s run for president. His candidacy illuminated a changing landscape for the religion, where Americans are growing more curious than fearful about the faith, and allies can be found even among Christians with deep misgivings about Mormon beliefs. “After this, it’s hard to say the Mormons are really outsiders,” said Jan Shipps, a scholar of American religion and

expert on the LDS church. No one would argue that prejudice and misunderstanding have disappeared. And many wonder how long the new tolerance will last beyond the election. But over the years since Romney first indicated he would try for president, there have been signs of real progress. Mormons no longer stand alone against insults to their church; leaders of other faiths join them in protest. Christians who once spoke about Mormonism only to condemn it, now also acknowledge the church’s dedication to family, charity and community service. Until recently, prominent preachers Christian risked their standing in

their communities by appearing at the Salt Lake Tabernacle. That backlash has since diminished. And ministries such as the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association are discouraging conservative Christians from calling the LDS church a cult, a theological term with a specific meaning for Christians that morphed over the years into a broad rebuke. “I think this change in tone is significant, but it will be interesting to see how it plays out in the long run,” said J.B. Haws, a historian at Brigham Young University who researches public perception of the LDS church. “From a Mormon standpoint, it has to be encour-

aging, since the softening of the ‘cult’ rhetoric diminishes the ‘strangeness’ factor that is always tied to charges that Mormons aren’t Christians.” Richard Mouw, dean of Fuller Theological Seminary, a prominent evangelical school in Pasadena, Calif., said Romney’s candidacy didn’t cause the shift, but was a sign of changes already under way. Mouw is co-leader of a group of evangelical and Mormon scholars who have been working behind the scenes for more than a decade to bring civility to their theological debate. In recent years, growing numbers of evangelical and other religious figures have made their way to

Temple Square. Mormon authorities have also been reaching out, scheduling visits with leaders of other faith traditions while traveling for regular church business, according to Michael Purdy, a spokesman for the LDS church. The Rev. George O. Wood, head of the Assemblies of God, one of the largest U.S. Pentecostal denominations, met in September with LDS authorities and local evangelical leaders in Utah. The Assemblies of God considers Mormonism heretical, but Wood said leaders from the two churches can relate over

Mormons • Continued from A8 their similar “marginalized and persecuted backgrounds.” At the same time, nonMormons are having more frequent contact with Latter-day Saints in their everyday lives. Christian conservatives often find themselves working with Mormons in the business world, Mouw said. (Evangelicals often ask him if it’s OK to pray with Mormons at a working lunch.) At a recent talk about Mormonism to an evangelical community in Phoenix, Mouw said about a dozen people came up to him afterward and said, “My pastor says Mormons are evil, but I have next door neighbors who are Mormon and are really wonderful people.” During the rollercoaster anyone-but-Romney Republican primary, the prospects for civil discussion about Mormonism seemed dim as evangelical leaders scrambled for an alternative nominee. Their motivations were varied, including concern that Romney wasn’t sufficiently conservative. However, religion was a factor. At a private Texas meeting of evangelical leaders last January, organized to decide who they should back, Romney received just four votes out of about 150, according to Mark DeMoss, an evangelical adviser to Romney who was there representing the campaign. The leaders endorsed former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, a conservative Roman Catholic. “I thought there was much more negative attention to the LDS church and its beliefs and history in the primaries,” said David Banack, a Latter-day Saint and Wyoming attorney who voted for Romney. Once it was clear Romney would be the nominee, criticism of Mormonism mostly stopped. (Banack also credits President Barack

Now, Pope Benedict XVI will join the Twitter-sphere, tweeting from a personal account along with the world’s celebrities, leaders and ordinary folk. A Vatican spokesman said details about Benedict’s handle and other information will come when the Vatican officially launches the account, perhaps before the end of the year.

Obama for restraint on the topic during the election. “There aren’t many positive things I would say about the Obama campaign,” Banack said, “but that was one of them.”) Interest shifted away from beliefs that set Mormons apart to how Mormons worship and live. The spotlight on Romney spread to a broad array of Latter-day Saints, including Harvard management gurus, authors and bloggers. At the University of Notre Dame, the Fighting Irish football team is led by star linebacker Manti Te’o, a Latter-day Saint who talks openly about how he prayed to choose among the dozens of college scholarships he was offered.

year-old Salt Lake City investment broker who is Mormon and voted for Romney. “They (Americans) know a little more about people that represent the Mormon religion, and I think it will drive away further controversy.”

On Election Day, evangelicals, a key Republican constituency, supported Romney in greater numbers than they did 2008 GOP nominee John McCain, according to exit polls. However disappointing Romney’s loss to Obama, Shipps said it was likely the best outcome for the church. As the first Mormon in one of the most powerful jobs in the world, any unpopular moves Romney would have made in the U.S. or abroad could have rebounded badly on Mormonism. Now, the church will get a break from the spotlight. After the election, Mouw estimates that evangelicals can be divided into thirds: one group that accepts Mormonism, another that rejects it, and another group that is conflicted about the faith. Sarah Fishler Rice, a 32 year-old Latter-day Saint from Salem, Ore., didn’t vote for Romney. A registered Democrat, she cast a ballot for Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate. But she said Romney had performed a service for Mormonism. “I think at the end of the election, people were seeing him for his political beliefs rather than his religious beliefs, I think that was a really big hurdle that he overcame,” Rice said.

ANNIEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S MAILBOX


It may be time to tell people about your condition

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

Dear Annie: I'm in my 30s. Four years ago, I was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome after a two-year career ended in disaster. It was my mother who suspected what was wrong. It explained the problems I've had â&#x20AC;&#x201D; no friends, no social life and the inability to hold down a job, among others. I knew there was something wrong with me. I couldn't figure out what to do at parties or dinners, or why I never had a girlfriend, and I stopped getting invited to get-togethers because I would sit by myself. Even my one friend thought I was weird. Eventually, she stopped speaking to me, too. Since the diagnosis, I've hated myself less, but I have a lot of regret for not having been a better friend. I may have appeared apathetic, myopic, hostile, selfish or self-absorbed. I regret that my grandparents may have perceived me as uncaring and ignorant. I know it wasn't my fault. I've joined some autism support groups and have met people, but a lot of us are constrained by phobias, tics, medications, etc. Nowadays, there's a lot more that's known about Asperger's, and we're no longer seen as freaks. But it's still hard. I haven't told most of my family about my diagnosis. My grandmother often makes nasty remarks about me. I'm tempted to tell her the reasons for my behavior, but why should I have to explain? She shouldn't say such things to anyone. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; New York Dear New York: We agree that Grandma shouldn't say unkind things, but don't you think you're being a bit unfair to her, as well? You are withholding information that could make her more understanding and could improve your relationship. It sounds as if you have been angry with her for a very long time. This could be an opportunity to get past it, which would help both of you. Dear Annie: For six months, I have been mother to the most wonderful three children through our state's foster care system. "Sharing the News in Pa." inspired me to write down the "dos" and "don'ts" for adoptive and foster moms. Don't ask, "Do you have any children of your own?" Likewise, do not refer to the biological parents as the "real parents." It's a little jab to our hearts. Never ask why the biological parents lost custody. It's none of your business. Those parents are suffering. And without them, these terrific kids would not exist. Please don't expect your parenting techniques to be applicable to children who have been traumatized, destabilized and neglected. Please don't assume that we are doing this for financial reimbursement from the state. Please do not be judgmental if the parents don't know more about the child than you think they should. One month before our children were placed in our home, we were presented with 600 pages of medical records, and that didn't include everything. Do consider hosting a shower. Not for the gifts, but for the ritual that recognizes the couple as excited, expectant parents. Do be patient with us. Our three school-age children moved in all at once. It was a tremendous adjustment. Do offer to babysit or help as you would with any new parents. Please recognize these children as the strong, resilient, resourceful and intelligent kids they are. Ours have survived circumstances that would throw most adults into a downward spiral. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Massachusetts Dear Massachusetts: Thank you for your excellent advice. People often don't know how to respond to those who adopt or take in foster children. Your suggestions will help them out tremendously. Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column. Please email your questions to, or write to: Annie's Mailbox, c/o Creators Syndicate, 737 3rd Street, Hermosa Beach, CA 90254.

There is a home for those foam shipping peanuts Dear Readers: Have you received packages that are filled with those plastic foam peanuts? They usually end up scattered all over the place, and then they end up in the trash. Well, I have some good news: There is an organization that recycles them. First of all, to easily get the â&#x20AC;&#x153;peanutsâ&#x20AC;? together (since they stick to everything because of static electricity), give them a quick spray or two with antistatic spray. Now, put them in a container and call 800-828-2214 for a recorded message from The Plastic Loose Fill Council, where it will ask for your ZIP

Hints from Heloise Columnist code so it can find a business that will accept the peanuts. Most businesses involve packing and shipping. Keep this information handy, since the holidays are right around the corner and you may have an abundance of packing peanuts. You also can share the number with friends and family

so peanuts donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end up in a landfill. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Heloise PET PAL Dear Readers: Linda Caballero Usborne of San Antonio sent a photo of her miniature schnauzer, Buddy, gazing to his right. Buddy looks like my miniature schnauzer, Cabbie. Miniature schnauzers are such a sweet breed, arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they? To see Buddy, visit www. and click on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pets.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Heloise BUDGETING YOUR GROCERY DOLLARS Dear Heloise: My hint is for budgeting grocery dollars. Every month, I put my grocery dollars

on a rechargeable store gift card. Every time I shop, I know exactly how much money I have left for the remainder of the month, which shows on my receipt. Also, it allows me to zip my card on the machine without having to select â&#x20AC;&#x153;debitâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;creditâ&#x20AC;? and signing, so I typically zip and then assist the clerk by bagging my own groceries in my reusable bags. I never hold up the line by having credit issues, etc. Also, I can budget for dinner parties or holiday meals by knowing exactly how much money I have to spend. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Deb in The Villages, Fla.












HOROSCOPE BY FRANCES DRAKE For Sunday, Nov. 18, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Someone who is older or more experienced, especially in a group situation, might try to put you down or criticize you today. Don’t let this happen. Maintain your own integrity. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) It’s difficult to please bosses and parents today. Just accept this and be patient. Many people feel this way today. (Oh dear.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Travel plans might disappoint you today. You might not get a reservation, or increased responsibilities could change your plans. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is a poor day to decide how to divide something, especially an inheritance or something that has to do with shared property. People are in a stingy frame of mind. (It’s oppressive.) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) If friends and partners are critical of you today, don’t take it personally. And try not to be critical of them. It’s just what it is. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You feel overburdened with responsibilities and tasks today. Just do what you can. Each of us has only 24 hours a day, and that’s it. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Children might be an increased burden or responsibility for you today. Meanwhile, romantic liaisons are discouraging. (This is a brief, passing dark cloud.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is not a good day to deal with parents and authority figures. Just accept this, and be patient with them. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might fall into worry mode today. Try not to do this because, for your sign especially, its deadly! Optimism is a survival issue for you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might feel broke today. (Why is there always so much month left at the end of the money?) Join the club; we number in the millions. Most people in the world feel broke. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might feel lonely or cut off from others today because you yourself are withdrawn. Not to worry, many people feel this way as well. The way to get out of this is to be friendly (but sometimes it’s just too much bother). PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your confidence is weak today, and you might find yourself second-guessing everything you do. Don’t worry; this feeling is gone by tomorrow. (Whew!) Instead, use it to do careful research and check things. YOU BORN TODAY You are social, active and intellectually aware. As such, you are “in the know.” You are diligent and work hard to achieve what you want, not the least of which is recognition. You are highly sought-after as an entertaining friend who is helpful to others. You will be delighted to know your year ahead will be extremely social and a blessing to all relationships.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Saturday, Nov. 17, the 322nd day of 2012. There are 44 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 17, 1962, Washington Dulles International Airport was dedicated by President John F. Kennedy. On this date: In 1800, Congress held its first session in Washington in the partially completed Capitol

building. In 1869, the Suez Canal opened in Egypt. 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.”

In 1997, 62 people, most of them foreign tourists, were killed when militants opened fire at the Temple of Hatshepsut in Luxor, Egypt; the attackers were killed by police. One year ago: Occupy Wall Street protesters clogged streets and tied up traffic around the U.S. to mark two months since the movement’s birth and signal they weren’t ready to quit, despite the breakup of many of their encampments by police.

Hill leaders voice new confidence in deficit deal WASHINGTON (AP) — Congressional leaders from both parties voiced fresh optimism Friday after meeting with newly re-elected President Barack Obama about avoiding year-end “fiscal cliff” tax increases and spending cuts that would hammer the middle class and risk plunging the economy into recession. House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio said Republicans are willing to consider increased revenue “as long as it is accompanied by spending cuts” as leaders in a divided government get to work on a possible deal after a fierce election campaign. He presented a framework that one official said called for a deficit down-payment of unspecified size by year’s end, to be followed by comprehensive tax reform and an overhaul of Medicare and other benefit programs in 2013. Democrats indicated some spending cuts would be fine with them. “I feel confident that a solution may be in sight,” said House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California. The goal of the high-pressure talks to come is to produce a mul-

Regulators OK stamp price hike WASHINGTON (AP) — The cost of mailing a firstclass letter will go up by a penny in January. The Postal Regulatory Commission on Friday approved the proposed rate increase, which raises the price of a first-class domestic stamp to 46 cents. The price of a postcard will increase from 32 cents to 33 cents, while a new global “forever” stamp will allow customers to mail letters anywhere in the world for one set price of $1.10. Currently, the prices for international letters vary. The prices go into effect Jan. 27. The U.S. Postal Service, which posted a record annual loss of $15.9 billion, proposed the rate increase last month.


President Barack Obama acknowledges House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio while speaking to reporters in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington Friday, as he hosted a meeting of the bipartisan, bicameral leadership of Congress to discuss the deficit and economy. titrillion-dollar deficit-reduction plan that can take the place of the across-the-board tax increases and spending cuts that are slated to take effect on Jan. 1. In remarks while reporters were present, Obama stressed that time was short as he welcomed the leaders to the White House for the first time since

winning re-election this month. “We have urgent business to do,” he said. If nothing else, the mood seemed good around the table in the Roosevelt Room of the White House. Obama noted that it would soon be Boehner’s birthday and said he wasn’t “going to embarrass him with a cake

because we didn’t know how many candles were needed.” “Yeah, right,” said Boehner, who’s turning 63 on Saturday, chuckling as he playfully poked the president in the elbow. There was no indication that the meeting touched on Obama’s campaign-long call to raise tax rates at upper incomes. In their public comments, neither the president nor the lawmakers dwelt on long-standing differences that doomed previous deficit negotiations. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell came closest, telling reporters that while Republicans are willing to discuss increased revenue, most members of his party “believe we are in the dilemma we are in not because we tax too little but because we spend too much.” After the meeting, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, “Both sides agreed that while there may be differences in our preferred approaches, we will continue a constructive process to find a solution and come to a conclusion as soon as possible.” For all the expressions of optimism, it was unclear whether the

Nov. 6 elections and the prospect of the so-called fiscal cliff would serve as a strong enough catalyst for these talks to succeed where other recent attempts have failed. Obama ran for a new term calling for a “balanced approach” to deficit reduction that includes raising taxes on income over $200,000 a year for individuals and $250,000 for couples. And while the president has stated a willingness to pull federal savings out of benefit programs including Medicare and Medicaid, Democratic leaders have been reluctant to go along. Raising taxes has long been anathema to Republicans, who say government’s spending must be cut to reduce deficits and taxes reduced to stimulate job creation in an economy where unemployment is 7.9 percent. Boehner told reporters after Friday’s meeting that he had outlined a framework for negotiations that “is consistent with the president’s call for a fair and balanced approach.” He did not provide details, except to say it “deals with reforming our tax code and reforming our spending.”

Texas parade honoring war heroes ends in tragedy MIDLAND, Texas (AP) Cheered on by a flag-waving crowd, a parade float filled with wounded veterans and their spouses was inching across a railroad track when the crossing gates began to lower and a freight train that seemed to come out of nowhere was suddenly bearing down on them, its horn blaring. Some of those seated on the float jumped off in wide-eyed terror just moments before the train traveling at more than 60 mph crashed into the flatbed truck with a low whoosh and a thunderous crack. Four veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan including an Army sergeant who apparently sacrificed his life to save his wife were killed Thursday afternoon and 16 people were injured in a scene of both tragedy and heroism. For some of the veterans who managed to jump clear of the wreck, training and battlefield

instinct instantly kicked in, and they rushed to help the injured, applying tourniquets and putting pressure on wounds. “They are trained for tragedy,” said Pam Shoemaker of Monroe, La., who was with her husband, a special operations veteran, on a float ahead of the one that was hit. A day after the crash, federal investigators were trying to determine whether the two-float parade had been given enough warning to clear the tracks. And locals were struggling to cope with a tragedy at the start of what was supposed to be a threeday weekend of banquets, deer hunting and shopping in appreciation of the veterans’ sacrifice. “It’s just a very tragic and sad thing,” said Michael McKinney of Show of Support, the local charity that organizes the annual event and invited the two dozen veterans. “It’s difficult when you’re trying to do something really good

and something tragic occurs.” National Transportation Safety Board member Mark Rosekind, standing near the intersection in downtown Midland where the crash took place, offered hope Friday that video would provide a fuller picture of what happened. Cameras were on both the lead car of the Union Pacific train and a sheriff’s vehicle that was trailing the flatbed truck, Rosekind said. The train was moving at 62 mph at the time of the crash, short of the 70 mph speed limit, Rosekind said. The speed limit was raised from 40 mph in 2006 to meet a growing demand for freight and to improve efficiency for passenger trains, Union Pacific spokeswoman Raquel Espinoza said. NTSB investigators have not determined if the gate and other protective measures were updated when the speed limit was raised,

Rosekind said. The agency plans to test signals for abnormalities Saturday. Killed were Marine Chief Warrant Officer 3 Gary Stouffer, 37; Army Sgt. Maj. Lawrence Boivin, 47; Army Sgt. Joshua Michael, 34; and Army Sgt. Maj. William Lubbers, 43. One veteran and three spouses remained hospitalized Friday, with one spouse in critical condition. At the time of the crash, the veterans were on their way to a banquet in their honor. Shoemaker said the flatbed truck she was riding on had just crossed the tracks and was moving slowly when she heard a train coming and looked back to see the lowered crossing gates bouncing up and down on the people seated on the float behind her. Witnesses described people screaming as the warning bells at the crossing went off and the train blasted its horn.

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.

Right at home BY ROB KISER Sports Editor You might think Saturday would be a special day for Juli Accurso as she prepares to run in the NCAA National cross country meet at Louisville. And it will be for the Ohio University junior and former Miami East state champion in track, who earned All-American honors a year ago — for reasons beyond what you might think. And that is what will be waiting for her after she finishes the race. “I am really excited about it,” Accurso said. “Because it is close enough that I will have a lot of family and friends there watch-

ing me.” And among those friends will be two people who changed Accurso’s life forever — although she couldn’t have known it at the time — and turned soccer’s loss into cross country’s gain. Accurso, who followed up last year’s breakout season by defending her Mid American Conference title and winning the NCAA Regional last Friday to advance to nationals, played a lot of soccer as a young girl. “I had always played soccer,” she said. “Ron and Linda Deaton were really into running. They had approached my parents about me running cross country in seventh grade. They told them they thought I would like it and I

Blue Jays strike big Sign All-Star game MVP Cabrera NEW YORK (AP) — The busy Toronto Blue Jays struck again Friday with their latest big deal: All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera is set to join them in his return from a drug suspension. A person familiar with the negotiations said the free agent outfielder and the Blue Jays have reached agreement on a two-year contract worth $16 million. The deal is pending a physical, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because there was no official announcement. ESPN Deportes first reported the agreement Friday. Earlier this week, the Blue Jays got All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes and pitchers Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle from the Miami Marlins in a blockbuster trade that could involve a dozen players. Toronto has not reached the playoffs since winning its second straight World Series in 1993, and has often been stuck behind big spenders in the AL East. After going 73-89 this year, the Blue Jays have made quite a splash in the offseason.

Milton-Union’s Joe Thoele attempts to break a tackle during the Division IV Region 16 regional finals game Friday night at Centerville High School.

Slipped away Massie handles M-U in regional final BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor

There will be plenty of bad blood boiling on Saturday afternoon at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisc. Whether it be because of recent tight games between Ohio State and Wisconsin, a question of integrity between the coaches, or because of a head-to-head fight for supremacy since the Buckeyes and Badgers were both placed in the Leaders Division of the Big Ten, one thing has become clear. See Page 18.

Gordon’s anger goes back seven months When Clint Bowyer and Jeff Gordon made contact in the closing laps at Phoenix, Gordon was overcome by a grudge he’d been carrying at least seven months. The four-time NASCAR champion retaliated by intentionally wrecking Bowyer, triggering a garage-area melee. See Page 18.

Buckeyes, Badgers renew rivalry


When the ball hit the ground, Milton-Union got new life. Clinton-Massie’s punter took it away in an instant, though. A bad snap on a punt on fourthand-15 from the Falcons’ own 11-yard line looked like it would give the Bulldogs a chance to tie the game halfway through the first quarter. Instead, Massie punter Travis Daugherty ducked the CENTERVILLE would-be punt blockers and took off running, racing 89 yards for a game-changing touchdown on a broken play, and the top-seeded Falcons rode that momentum swing all the way to a 35-7 victory in the Division IV Region 16 championship game Friday night at Centerville High School. “That play was huge,” MiltonUnion coach Bret Pearce said. “It’s a game of momentum. We had a chance to grab it, but we let it slip away —

Logano on pole at Homestead HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) — Joey Logano wants an apology from Jeff Gordon, and Clint Bowyer is so angry with Gordon, he won’t even discuss the now very public feud. Meanwhile, on NASCAR’s undercard, Brad Keselowski and Jimmie Johnson are racing for the Sprint Cup championship. The season finale is shaping up to be a knockdown, drag-out, heavyweight fight and it might not have anything to do with the title bout. Keselowski goes into the race Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway with a 20-point lead over the five-time champion, and needs only to finish 15th or better to win his first Cup title. He took a big step Friday by qualifying third in his Penske Racing Dodge. Johnson was 10th in a Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet. “I totally expected him to outqualify us, to be quite honest,” Keselowski said. “I was going to be fine with that. At least we were prepared for the worst and that’s not what happened, so I guess we’re OK.” The pole went to Logano, who is driving his final race for Joe Gibbs Racing. He turned a lap of 176.056 mph in the No. 20 Toyota he’s driven for the last four years, beating Marcos Ambrose, who turned a lap of 175.342 in his Richard Petty Motorsports Ford.

OSU, Wisconsin renew rivalry COLUMBUS — There will be plenty of bad blood boiling on Saturday afternoon at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisc. Whether it be because of recent tight games between Ohio State and Wisconsin, a question of integrity between the coaches, or because of a head-to-head fight for supremacy since the Buckeyes and Badgers were both placed in the Leaders Division of the Big Ten, one thing has become clear. Ohio State and Wisconsin simply don’t like each other very much. “I don’t want to go on record saying that I hate Wisconsin more than Michigan,” OSU receiver Corey Brown said, “but I hate Wisconsin just as much AP PHOTO as Michigan.” Ohio State quarterback Braxon Miller runs the ball A lot of the animosity against Penn State Oct. 27 in State College, Pa. between the two teams like-

ly stems from the past two games. In 2010, Ohio State was ranked No. 1 in the nation before its trip to Madison. The Badgers returned the opening kick for a touchdown, took a 21-0 lead and dashed the Buckeyes’ hopes for a national championship with a 31-18 win. OSU coach Urban Meyer wasn’t even a Buckeye then, but used the word “stole” when describing the Wisconsin victory in 2010 and said his players have talked about the budding rivalry because of the game. “A lot of guys on the team, especially the seniors, are continually thinking about that moment and don’t want it to happen again,” OSU defensive back Travis Howard said. Ohio State gained a measure of revenge a year

ago when Wisconsin came the Ohio Stadium with a 7-1 record and was ranked 12th in the nation, only to be sent home via a 33-29 loss. It was one of the few highlights in an otherwise subpar 6-7 season by the Buckeyes, a year ravaged by suspensions, NCAA sanctions and coaching changes. Don’t for a second think the Badgers have forgotten that game any more than OSU’s players have forgotten about 2010. “From what we left on the field last year against Ohio State, we want to make sure we win this year,” said Wisconsin running back Montee Ball earlier this week. More fire in the rivalry might stem from the allegations Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema made during the offseason of Meyer swaying

■ CONTINUED FROM 17 and that just gave them more momentum and more confidence. “I saw him (Daugherty) fumble the ball, and we went after it. But a couple of our kids left their feet, and that’s not what they’re coached to do. And then he (Daugherty) just made a play.” The Falcons (13-0) took a 7-0 lead by driving 77 yards on 10 plays on the game’s opening possession, capping it off with a 1-yard touchdown by Bayle Wolf. After falling behind 14-0 on the big play, the Bulldogs (10-3) began to move the ball on the strength of bruising back Tyler Brown. A 28-yard carry took the Bulldogs to the Massie 17, but the Falcon defense stiffened up and forced an incomplete pass on fourth-and-14 to get the ball back. A few possessions later, Wolf took an option pitch around the right side, stopped to let a pair of would-be Bulldog tacklers that had the angle on him run by, then continued on for a 58-yard score to make it 21-0. And after forcing a Milton-Union three-and-out, quarterback Tyler Uetrecht hit a wide-open Trent Smart for a 20-yard touchdown to make it 28-0 at the half. “I was really impressed with the strength of their skill guys,” Pearce said of Massie. “They were fast and physical. They’re a great football team.” Massie piled up 311 yards of offense in the first half alone — 268 of it on the ground. Milton-Union, meanwhile, managed only 104 yards of offense in the half, with Brown’s 65 yards making up most of it — and two interceptions by Massie’s J.D. Curtsinger didn’t help the Bulldogs’ cause, either. “We made a couple of mistakes, and they’re way too good to get away with that,” Pearce said. “We had to play an absolutely flawless game, but we didn’t.” Another thing the Bulldogs didn’t do, though, was give up. The Bulldogs made a change at quarterback at the half, going with junior Kenton Dickison instead of starting junior London

■ CONTINUED FROM 17 just feel in love with the sport. It is pretty amazing — if it hadn’t been for them, I might have never run cross country.” And Miami County would have been denied one of the more amazing athletic careers in recent memory. Accurso is one of the nicest people you will meet — and one of the most determined competitors when she puts on a uniform — who had the perseverance to allow her hard work to be rewarded. After battling nagging injuries much of her high school career — she came into her own as a senior, finishing in the top five at the Division III state cross country meet and winning the D-III state title in the 1,600 in track to cap her high school. But that was just the tip of the iceberg. After a relatively quiet freshman year at OU, Accurso has emerged as one of the top distance runners in the country. “Sometimes, I still have a hard time grasping just how much I have improved,” Accurso said. “It just shows you that even in high school, you still have a lot of time in front of you to run and get better. And I have been blessed with great coaches here (at Ohio University).” She had a college season few experience as a sophomore. Accurso stunned the field by winning the MAC women’s race in 20:35.3, and stunned even herself by qualifying for nationals and went on to earn AllAmerican honors in both cross country and indoor track. And while most runners would have followed that with outdoor track — Accurso took a different path last spring and summer — all the way to France. She learned of an opportunity through WWOOF (World Wide Organization of Organic Farms). “In exchange for room and board, I helped a woman run her bed and breakfast,” Accurso said. “I became a WWOOFer. It was just such a great experience. Because it is not like being a tourist. It is a completely different experience. You are living and part of the culture.” And while it can sometimes be tough on competitive athletes to take a season off — as Accurso did last spring — she feels it worked to her advantage. “I think it helped me having five months off,” she said. “I think it motivated me when I came back. And I had the perfect situation over in France. I was able to volunteer and still do my training.” The honors have rolled in for Accurso this season,

Cowan. “That was a purely strategic decision. It had nothing to do with either’s play,” Pearce said. “Kenton is a little more mobile, and with the pressure Massie was putting on London, we wanted a guy in there that could scramble a little more. We just wanted to give them a little different look.” It looked good, too, as Dickison went 3 for 4 on his first two possessions, including a clutch 38-yard connection to Alex King on thirdand-7 that set the Bulldogs up with a first-and-goal, and on third down he hit David Karns in the back corner of the end zone for an 11-yard touchdown that made it 287 Massie. Dickison finished the night 6 for 10 for 87 yards. King had two catches for 45 yards and Karns had two for 30 yards and the lone Milton-Union score. “Kenton came in and did a really nice job,” Pearce said. Milton-Union’s Tyler Cottrell recovered a fumble on Massie’s first play from scrimmage after that, but the Bulldogs stalled out at the Falcon 38-yard line. Two plays after the turnover-ondowns, Wolf broke free for a 66-yard touchdown that iced the game, making it 35-7

Milton-Union finished with 241 yards of total offense, with Brown leading the way with 84 yards on 15 carries. It was only the second time that Milton-Union had

ever reached the regional final. The Bulldogs were the lowest seed left playing at No. 7. “This wasn’t the team that was supposed to be here,” Pearce said. “After tonight, there’s only four teams left in the state. So I consider us tied for fifth. We certainly would have liked to win the game tonight, but fifth in the state is pretty darn good.”

Gordon’s anger at Bowyer dates back months HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) — When Clint Bowyer and Jeff Gordon made contact in the closing laps at Phoenix, Gordon was overcome by a grudge he’d been carrying at least seven months. The four-time NASCAR champion retaliated by intentionally wrecking Bowyer, triggering a garage-area melee. Gordon’s reputation took a hit among his peers and he was fined $100,000 by NASCAR. But he avoided suspension and will race Sunday in the season finale at HomesteadMiami Speedway, where he’ll celebrate his 20th

anniversary with sponsor DuPont and Hendrick Motorsports. He admitted Friday that DuPont had initial concerns NASCAR would park him this weekend for his actions Sunday at Phoenix, but he never worried he wouldn’t race at Homestead and he’s not sorry for wrecking Bowyer. “The thing that I regret and the thing that I messed up on is that I allowed my anger and my emotions to put me in a position to make a bad choice,” Gordon said. “I felt like Clint needed to be dealt with, but that wasn’t the right way to go about

it, certainly not the right time. And what I hate most about it is that other guys were involved with it and it affected their day.” The wreck collected Joey Logano and Aric Almirola, and championship points leader Brad Keselowski had to dodge his way around the accident scene. It also triggered a brawl in the garage between Gordon’s crew and Bowyer’s crew that has received as much attention as the championship race between Keselowski and five-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson. It has also thrust the

41-year-old Gordon into the headlines at the end of yet another disappointing season. He was docked 25 points for Sunday’s bad behavior, which dropped him to 11th in the Sprint Cup Series standings in this one-win season. He hasn’t won a championship since 2001, and teammate Johnson, who came on board in 2002, will race for his sixth title Sunday. So his actions on Sunday were certainly that of a frustrated driver, and he admitted wrecking Bowyer sent a message to the garage.

oral commitments from players who had previously pledged to other schools. At the center of attention was offensive lineman Kyle Dodson switching his commitment from Wisconsin to Ohio State. While both Bielema and Meyer said this week that the recruiting matter was blown out of proportion — “We’re fine,” Meyer said — Bielema said there is a recruiting rivalry there. “I think the part that’s grown out of this is we do a lot of recruiting in Ohio,” Bielema said, “so the kids know each other. That builds up a little bit of animosity and some feelings out there more than anything. I’ve learned early on in my coaching career you lose more friends in recruiting in the coaching world than you do on game days. “

becoming the fifth runner in league history to defend the MAC title, winning in 20:48.4, 20 seconds ahead of the closest runner. She was named MAC Scholar Athlete of the Week and just this week was named Great Lakes Region Runner of the Year. “This is a huge honor for Juli,” OU coach Clay Caulkins said. “There are only nine regions in the country and for her to be selected as the top runner in the region says a lot about hard work and tradition. When athletes achieve honors such as this, it is not only a refection of her ability, but the ability of the team. There is no doubt she has exceeded my expectations and I couldn’t be more excited for her.” For all her success, Accurso knew she hadn’t run her best race heading into the NCAA regional at Madison Wisconsin. “I knew it (winning) was a possibility,” Accurso said. “I felt like I hadn’t run solid for an entire race yet. If I felt good I was going to go for it. If I didn’t, I was just going to run a solid race.” Not only did she run her best race, her time of 20:07 for the 6K was a new OU school record. “I didn’t even realize that until after the race when someone told me,” she said. “I am pretty proud of that.” As she prepares for the NCAA national this morning, Accurso is keeping things low key. “I really don’t have any numbers (time) or place in mind,” she said. “I just want to run my best race.” Last year, Accurso talked about the fact she couldn’t count on a repeat this year — and instead, she has topped herself. “I know,” Accurso said. “Last year was a break out year for me. It is amazing. I just feel so blessed to have the coaches and teammates I have.” And Accurso, who finished 36th at nationals last year, knows she has an ace in the hole this year. “The support I have received from Miami East and the people back home is unbelievable,” she said. “I wish I could just give everyone of them a hug. It is beyond words the support I have received. And I know a lot of them are going to be there Saturday. “It’s been a while since I have seen my family and they are going to be there. I will keep my distance before the race and focus on the race. But once I cross the finish line, assuming I have the energy, I will sprint over to them.” And you can be sure, along with her family, Ron and Linda Deaton will be there beaming with pride — and ready for one of the biggest hugs of all.
