Turkey farm busy with orders

Volume 104, No. 271


Bowman & Landes raises free-range birds BY NATALIE KNOTH Staff Writer With Thanksgiving right around the corner, family business Bowman & Landes in Bethel Township has sold more than 35,000 turkeys. The farm is known for raising turkeys in more humane conditions that in turn make for healthier holiday meals. Anita Bowman-Hamber, part of the farm’s three generations, said she has been pleased with sales this year, as she has been in past

BETHEL TWP. Thanksgiving seasons. “I think people really like our turkeys for being free-range and antibody-free,” Bowman-Hamber said. “We’ve had lots of customers who go for that kind of a niche, and we still have that kind of niche. We’ve been very busy, and we’re thankful for that.” Located at 6490 E. Ross Road, Bowman & Landes has been selling free-range turkeys that are vegetable-fed and antibiotic-free since 1948. As such, their turkeys are considered more nutrious and easier to cook, Bowman-Hamber STAFF FILE PHOTO/ANTHONY WEBER said.

A way to give thanks

Students give their thanks From the mouths of babes, the Troy Daily News sought out a few thankful students at Cookson Elementary School. The third-grade classes carved out a few of their turkey-filled thoughts last week. Each student shared what means the most to them on this holiday.

Thanksgiving is traditionally about the gathering of family and friends to be thankful for what they have. For El Sombrero owner Ruben Pelayo and his “American mom” Judy Rose, it’s no different.

The meal will be offered from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22, and will include turkey, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes and gravy, dressing, corn, green beans, cranberry

funded entirely through the district’s contracts with Pepsi and Upper Valley Medical Center and their sponsorship funds. According to Troy City Schools treasurer Craig Jones, UVMC donated $76,000 and Pepsi donated $98,000 through their respective contracts with the school district. The concession stand facility cost $174,000 total and was constructed by Bruns Construction. Herman said Ferguson Field previously had used a mobile cart and portable toilets. Herman also said the lack of water and ice was the district’s main concern, because athletes or booster parents often had to haul water from the high school. “We think it’s going to work out well for our parents, coaches, players and everybody who will be out there using the field,� Herman said. “Everything now will be right there.

said. “Some come for the social aspect of it more than the food. But, seconds, thirds, fourths, they can eat as much as they want.� Pelayo purchases about 110 turkeys, while about 15 more are usually brought to the restaurants by community members. Others make cash donations throughout the year to help. This year, as part of its anniversary celebration, Ording’s in Troy raised $1,430 for the annual meal, which will just about cover the cost of the turkeys, Rose said. “We thank all the people that help, from the volunteers to the little boy that comes in with his piggy bank to donate,� Rose said. Handmade items — made by Rose and several longtime volunteers — also are sold in the Troy store to help defray the cost of the annual dinner. The food will continue to help those in the community long after the doors to the restaurants close on Thursday, Rose said. Extra food is delivered to Piqua’s Bethany Center and Troy’s St. Patrick soup kitchens. “Every bite of food will be eaten,� said Pelayo, who also makes a meat donation monthly to each soup kitchen. “Nothing goes to waste.� Rose said she and Pelayo look forward to the day of giving each year and invite the community to come share — and give thanks. “We have to give back everything we get,� Pelayo said.

We have electric in the building and we’ll be able to make ice, too. It worked out nice.� Herman said the idea for the facility came from former treasurer Don Pence, who suggested using the sponsorship money to add to the athletic facilities in the district without using taxpayer support and the district’s general operating funds. “This was Don’s idea to use the funds for our athletic facilities and to use the money for projects like this,� Herman said. Originally the project was set to be completed at the end of September. Herman said much of the delay was caused by obtaining permits and other setbacks, which pushed the completion date a few more weeks. Herman said varsity soccer, football and track and field events will continue at Troy Memorial Stadium. For more information, visit

Healthy Lifestyles Committee members sponsored a Healthy Lifestyles Fair at Miami East High School, where students got the opportunity to learn about health organizations in the community and county.

Miami East celebrates Healthy Lifestyles Week Miami East High School went “healthy” during the week of Nov. 12 with activities sponsored by the Miami East FFA Chapter. This project was made possible due to a $500 grant by the Ohio Small Grains Marketing Group. The Healthy Lifestyle Committee sponsored a Food For Thought Log in which students and staff would record all the food and drink they consumed during a day. During study halls, students received a healthy snack for keeping their log updated. Snacks included an apple, orange or banana, a low-fat whole grain snack bar or water and a non-fat yogurt. Additionally, the high school attended a Healthy Lifestyles Fair during lunch. Displays were provided by the Upper Valley Medical Center Sports Medicine,

CASSTOWN Miami County Family Abuse Shelter, American Cancer Society, American Red Cross, Excellence in Dentistry, Girls on the Run, Miami Valley Hospital, March of Dimes, Miami East Schools Nurse Jeanelle Adkins and the Miami County Health District. One of the stations included having students and staff learn about the sugar and fat content of many of their favorite foods and drinks. A canned food drive for students and staff was coordinated by the FFA and Pride In M.E. For every five items donated, the students’ name was entered into a drawing to pie guidance counselor Matt Rutledge inthe-eye at an all-school assembly. All cans donated will be given to the Fletcher

Food Pantry at the Fletcher United Methodist Church. About 250 cans were collected and $175 will be donated to the Fletcher Food Pantry. Additionally, the high school students got the chance to wear their hat to class by making a $1 donation to the Fletcher Food Pantry. Finally, motivational speaker David Kohout spoke to the entire student body. He brought a message that all students are special and have purpose. He challenged students to make good healthy, life choices and to always keep a positive attitude. The mission of the week was to bring awareness of the choices our students make in the selection of the foods and drinks that they choose. In the future the FFA would encourage all students and staff to make healthier choices.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Asahi Shimbun, Tokyo, on Japanese electronics makers: It is extremely rare for the top executive of a large, wellknown company to publicly admit his organization is a loser. Panasonic Corp. has said it will likely report a gargantuan loss of more than $9.3 billion for the second year in a row. In a recent news conference, Panasonic President Kazuhiro Tsuga said his company is not operating in “normal” conditions. “We need to start by recognizing this,” he said. Sharp Corp., another troubled Japanese electronics maker, has sharply raised its projected annual loss for the year through March 2013 to 450 billion yen. Sony Corp. is also struggling to bring its core consumer electronics business back into the black. The bottom lines of all these once-powerful electronics manufacturers have been battered by sluggish sales of their flat-panel TVs, once their core source of business and profits. They had also expected to carve out profitable futures by manufacturing lithium-ion batteries and solar panels, but these operations are facing rough going, too. The companies face a formidable challenge in trying to turn their money-losing operations around. Clearly, Japanese makers need to reassess their technologies and markets from a global perspective. They also need to be more willing to buy technologies from anywhere in the world and step up efforts to sell their own technologies. The very fact that the earnings results of companies like Panasonic and Sony still attract much media and public attention is, in a sense, clear evidence of the difficulty of nurturing new businesses in this country. London Evening Standard on the U.S. presidential election: Barack Obama has crowned his re-election with a victory speech that embodied all his old, inspirational rhetoric. “We are an American family and we rise and fall together,” he declared. Yet the invocation of a nation united despite its differences is at odds with the bitterness of the campaign and the closeness of the outcome. This vote was an affirmation of U.S. democracy. Obama in his victory speech reminded us that this election was all about the power of citizens to bring about change. It’s easy to forget that politics is about big things. The campaign was often negative but the parties did address, head on, very important issues about the role of the state and the way government should respond to economic challenges. Defeat for the Republicans on such fundamental issues does not bode well for the party: there is likely to be fierce debate now about where it goes next. The one dispiriting aspect of this election was the cost. It was the most expensive in history, at around $2.5?billion. ut a great thing about any U.S. election is that it reawakens our own democratic instincts. The razzmatazz that Americans bring to the campaigns may be different from our approach but it is still infectious. A presidential election is a great democratic event — for them and for us.

THEY SAID IT “The first time we met, we didn’t understand each other — period. But I realized if I wrote it down, she understood. Each student varies in their needs, you just have to figure it out.” — Troy resident Teresa Massey, on working with a Vietnamese girl through the Troy Literacy Council “I’m a veteran, and I thought it would be a good way to honor those who served. It’s really thoughtful of people. It’s not about asking for freebies — when I came back, it was just having people shake my hand and thank me.” — Military veteran and Miami County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Keith Carter, who organized Troy’s annual Veterans Day breakfast “The best senior class and team to ever walk the hallowed halls of Miami East. It’s a great day, but it’s bittersweet. We’re losing three kids we love dearly, three kids that got this whole thing started. I can’t say that enough.” — Miami East volleyball coach John Cash, on his team winning a second-straight state title

Network loses mind when election doesn’t go its way The most entertainment I’ve had watching TV in a long time came recently while watching a major “news” network have a meltdown from its rage at the fact an election it tried to fix didn’t end up going the way it wanted. But when the Baseball Writers’ Association of America rightfully handed the Detroit Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera the American League Most Valuable Player award by a landslide vote, all was right in the world of baseball — unless you worked for ESPN. (Which election and network did you think I was talking about?) The AL MVP race couldn’t have been more of a no-brainer. Cabrera won the Triple Crown, leading the league in the three major offensive statistical categories — batting average, home runs and runs batted in — all in the same season. That’s a feat that hadn’t been accomplished since 1967 when Boston’s Carl Yastrzemski did it, and it’s only the 12th time it’s ever happened since the RBI became a legitimate stat. Cabrera didn’t just put up such gaudy one-man-army numbers, though. He did it playing for a team that ended up going to the World Series — or, more importantly, to the playoffs at all, since the MVP voting is cast shortly after the end of the

Josh Brown Sunday Columnist regular season. There was no debate. Cabrera being the MVP was a foregone conclusion. No one player had the kind of impact he did on another successful team in the league. ESPN — the “Worldwide Leader” in pointless arguing — just couldn’t have that. So the network that built its empire on real journalism and has since thrown all of its integrity away by forgetting all about reporting actual facts in favor of creating its own narrative for every sport it “reports” on and telling viewers not what actually happened, but what they should think about what happened, manufactured an MVP voting race out of thin air. ESPN decided that Cabrera should not win the award, Los Angeles Angels’ rookie Mike Trout should win it.

And they made sure everyone knew what they thought. Anchors editorialized every piece on the AL MVP leading up to its announcement Thursday night. Analyst after analyst lobbied in Trout’s favor. The debate shows overwhelming touted Trout’s WAR (wins above replacement) — one of the newer sabremetric stats that is followed in baseball — as the only stat that mattered in the race. Trout had a great year, yes. Cabrera had a historic one. That’s all the debating necessary. Sorry, rookie. The fact that the Tigers reached the playoffs is just icing on the cake. Saying Trout deserved the award because he was “most valuable to his team” — a team that finished third in its division and couldn’t even reach the playoffs with the help of an unnecessary extra wild-card spot this year — is like calling him the most important ingredient in a dish that makes you vomit. And when Cabrera got 22 firstplace votes out of 28 and utterly crushed Trout, ESPN unleashed a level of butthurt that Star Wars fans mad at Disney buying their beloved franchise could never even match. Every anchor Thursday night expressed varying degrees of shock and outrage that the “vote wasn’t closer.” The debate shows all called

the BBWAA’s way of thinking “outdated.” And former player-turnedanalyst Curt Schilling said “I’m not going to argue that Cabrera didn’t deserve the award” … then spent the next 10 minutes arguing that Cabrera didn’t deserve it as much as Trout. It was a full night and a half of ESPN yelling at baseball. “Why didn’t you listen to us? WE’RE THE WORLDWIDE LEADER!” Even when Barack Obama won the presidential election, Fox News — which openly campaigned and rooted for his opponent, Mitt Romney — reverted to being a real news channel and merely reported the facts. And when analyst Karl Rove — who threw millions of dollars away trying to get Romney elected — tried to ignore mathematical facts and say there was still a chance, even its typically-biased anchors mocked him. ESPN is now the Fox News of the sports world. What it says is law … in its own mind. But now that the MVP voting is over and it failed to achieve its goal, ESPN can go back to its primary focus. Getting Tim Tebow traded to a team that will play him.

Is reed a ‘miracle plant’ or next kudzu? OXFORD, N.C. (AP) — fast-growing and It’s drought-tolerant, producing tons of biomass per acre. It thrives even in poor soil and is a self-propagating perennial, so it requires little investment once established. To people in the renewable fuels industry, Arundo donax also known as “giant reed” is nothing short of a miracle plant. An Oregon power plant is looking at it as a potential substitute for coal, and North Carolina boosters are salivating over the prospect of an ethanol bio-refinery that would bring millions of dollars in investment and dozens of high-paying jobs to hog country. But to many scientists and environmentalists, Arundo looks less like a miracle than a nightmare waiting to happen. Officials in at least three states have banned the bamboo-like grass as a “noxious weed”; California has spent more than $70 million trying to eradicate it. The federal government has labeled it a “high risk” for invasiveness. Many are comparing Arundo, which can reach heights of 30 feet in a single season, to another aggressive Asian transplant the voracious kudzu vine. More than 200 scientists recently sent a letter to the heads of federal agencies including the Environmental Protection Agency and the Departments of Agriculture and Energy, urging them not to encourage the commercial planting of known invasives like Arundo. “Many of today’s most problematic invasive plants from kudzu to purple loosestrife were intentionally imported and released into the environment for horticultural, agricultural, conservation, and forestry purposes,” they wrote Oct. 22. “It is imperative that we learn from our past mistakes by preventing inten-


In this Oct. 1 photo, farming director Sam Brake bends a stalk of Arundo donax toward the ground in a test plot behind the Biofuels Center of North Carolina in Oxford, N.C. The center is promoting the Asian transplant, but at least three states have already banned “giant reed” as invasive. tional introduction of energy crops that may create the next invasive species catastrophe particularly when introductions are funded by taxpayer dollars.” Mark Conlon, vice president for sector development at the nonprofit Biofuels Center of North Carolina in Oxford, hates the comparison with “the weed that ate the South.” “There’s no market for kudzu,” says Conlon, who is among those promoting a proposed $170 million, 20 million-gallon-a-year ethanol project here and Arundo’s role in it. “There’s no reason to manage it. It was thrown out in the worst places you can think of and left there.” His message about Arundo: It’ll be different this time. We can control it. But Mark Newhouser, who has spent nearly 20 years hacking this “nasty plant” from California’s riverbanks and wetlands, has his doubts.

“Why take a chance?” he asks. The back wall of the North Carolina biofuels center’s lobby is dominated by a large timeline, beginning with the General Assembly’s 2006 recognition of the state’s potential as a biofuels leader. The display ends with a panel declaring “10% in 10 Years” meaning that by 2017, a decade after the center’s creation, officials hope companies here will be producing the equivalent of a tenth of the liquid transportation fuels consumed in the state annually, or 600 million gallons of renewable biofuel a year. “An extraordinarily audacious goal,” W. Steven Burke, the center’s president and CEO, says proudly. Near the middle of the timeline is this: “November 2011: 50-acre energy grass propagation nursery established with Arundo donax.” The center’s staff has explored a variety of biofuel raw materials, from food

crops like corn, sugar beets and industrial sweet potatoes, to cottonwood and loblolly pine trees. Even pond scum or duckweed. All were either hard to raise in quantity, too expensive or more valuable for other uses. The staff also studied socalled “energy grasses” giant Miscanthus, coastal Bermudagrass, switchgrass. Out behind the center, farming director Sam Brake planted test plots of four varieties of sorghum. But for hardiness, ease of cultivation and maintenance, and, above all, yield per acre, none comes even close to Arundo donax. “Wow! Exclamation point,” says Burke, who, in his matching gray suit and shirt and with his snowwhite hair and beard, evokes the evangelical preacher. Believed to have sprung from the Indian subcontinent, Arundo has spread around the globe. Europeans have been using

it for centuries in the production of reeds for woodwind instruments. Like kudzu, which came to the United States as part of Japan’s exhibit at the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, Arundo arrived here in the mid- to late 19th century. And also like kudzu, Arundo was once touted as a perfect crop to help stem erosion. In California and Texas, farmers, ranchers and government workers enthusiastically planted it along waterways and drainage ditches. Shallow rooted, the canes would break off and move downstream, starting new stands. Arundo has become “naturalized” in 25 warmerweather states, according to a USDA weed risk analysis released in June. In banning it, California, Nevada and Texas have said the plant crowds out native species and consumes precious water. The Tennessee Exotic Pest Plant Council lists it as a “Significant Threat.” Virginia officials have labeled it “moderately invasive.” The West Virginia

Division of Natural Resources has categorized giant reed as “occasionally invasive.” But that might change if it were to be promoted as a commercial crop, says Elizabeth Byers, a vegetation ecologist with the agency’s wildlife diversity unit. “I certainly wouldn’t want to see any invasive species used as biomass,” she says. “Because they can escape.” North Carolina is keeping an eye on Arundo, but the folks in Oxford say past need not be prologue. Earlier this fall, International Chemtex christened the world’s first commercial-scale cellulosic ethanol plant in the northwest Italian city of Crescentino. Turning inedible biomass into sugars, the company hopes to produce up to 20 million gallons of fuel a year. By mid-2013, Chemtex wants to break ground on a like-sized plant that would employ 67 people in North Carolina. It has set its sights on the little city of Clinton, in the heart of hog country.

Low Mississippi water levels may soon halt barge traffic feet per second, is expected to be cut to 12,000 cubic feet per second over several days, starting Friday. The Missouri flows gently into the Mississippi around a bend just north of St. Louis. From there, about 60 percent of the Mississippi River water typically comes from the Missouri. This year, because of the drought, the Mississippi is even more reliant on Missouri River water — 78 percent of the Mississippi River at St. Louis is water that originated from the Missouri. The Mississippi is so low there now that if it drops another 5 feet, barge traffic may shut down from St. Louis to the confluence of the Ohio River at Cairo, Ill., perhaps as soon as early December. Barges already are required to carry lighter loads.

They warn the economic fallout will be enormous, potentially forcing job cuts, raising fuel costs and pinching the food supply. “This could be a major, major impact at crisis level,” said Debra Colbert, senior vice president of the Waterways Council, a public policy organization representing ports and shipping companies. “It is an economic crisis that is going to ripple across the nation at a time when we’re trying to focus on recovery.” At issue is a plan by the corps to significantly reduce the amount of water released from the Gavins Point Dam near Yankton, S.D., a move to conserve water in the upper Missouri River basin also stung by the drought. The outflow, currently at 36,500 cubic



ST. LOUIS (AP) — The gentle whir of passing barges is as much a part of life in St. Louis as the Gateway Arch and the Cardinals, a constant, almost soothing backdrop to a community intricately intertwined with the Mississippi River. But next month, those barges packing such necessities as coal, farm products and petroleum could instead be parked along the river’s banks. The stubborn drought that has gripped the Midwest for much of the year has left the Mighty Mississippi critically low and it will get even lower if the Army Corps of Engineers presses ahead with plans to reduce the flow from a Missouri River dam. Mississippi River interests fear the reduced flow will force a halt to barge

Ohio SPCA members catalog the condition of a dog for evidence against a puppy mill at 8350 TawawaMaplewood Road in Shelby County Saturday morning. Annie Wulfhorst of Grove City takes pictures of a rescued dog’s feet as Jennifer Graham of Buckeye Lake holds the dog, along with a white board for identification. Looking on from behind is Brad Adams of Washington Court House. The puppy mill was raided with a search warrant at 8 a.m. Saturday by the Shelby County Sheriff’s department after receiving previous complaints. Roughly 200 dogs were removed. A veterinarian did a walk-through of the facility and deemed it necessary to remove all of the dogs due to poor living conditions and poor care. Dozens of dirty wooden boxes and cages overgrown with weeds could be seen around the property as the dogs were removed by volunteers from various groups. The suspects in the puppy mill are Dave and Rhonda Auton and their son Adam Auton.

However, the Buccs hadn’t seen a passing attack with the capabilities of Austin Bruns and the Coldwater Cavaliers all year.

Roger Goodell’s timing seemed odd, with his Harvard School of Public Health speech on player safety coming after a week in which three starting NFL quarterbacks were knocked out of games with concussions. No matter, because the NFL commissioner is nothing if not a spin doctor extraordinaire. He cited the fact the quarterbacks were all removed from games as evidence of the progress the NFL has made in identifying head injuries and trying to limit their impact. “The simple truth is that any physical activity comes with risk and reward,” Goodell said. “Head injuries occur in sports.” They do, though the NFL sure took a long time to admit it. For years the league insisted there was no link between what happened on Sundays on the field and what happened to the brains of players afterward. The culture has changed, and Goodell wastes no chance to remind us of that. His speech Thursday night touched on everything from player safety in the days before the NFL even existed (18 college players died in 1904 alone) to what the league might be doing in the near future (different helmets for each position, weight limits on kickoff teams) to help prevent devastating head injuries. The NFL is helping fund studies on concussions, giving $30 million to the National Institutes of Health and teaming with players for another $100 million in similar research over the next decade. There are 100 former NFL players taking part in research led by Boston University to find a diagnosis for the degenerative brain disease, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, more commonly known as CTE.

OSU passes road test 2 straight titles for Stenhouse Jr. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. left little doubt that he’s ready for a promotion. Stenhouse became the sixth driver to win consecutive championships in NASCAR’s Nationwide Series. He finished sixth Saturday in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, edging Elliott Sadler for the title. See Page A9.

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — Ohio State finally got a test away from Columbus and managed to get a win in a hostile environment. Deshaun Thomas scored 25 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and the fourth-ranked Buckeyes beat Rhode Island 69-58 in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off tournament in Connecticut on Saturday. Lenzelle Smith Jr. added 15 points, Aaron Craft had 13 points and four assists for Ohio State (2-0), which struggled with the Rams (0-3) well into the second half. Xavier Munford had 16 points

to lead Rhode Island, which had four players in double figures and trailed by just four at halftime. “We’re going to know a lot more about our basketball team at 6:30 then we did coming into this tournament, Ohio State coach Thad Matta said. “I think this will be good for our team in terms of growth.” This was Ohio State’s first game away from home, and its first on a neutral court.

Questions surround Browns, Cowboys IRVING, Texas (AP) — — Both coaches get questions about their job security. Both quarterbacks have to answer to unsightly interception numbers. Other than that, Dallas and Cleveland are in very different places going into Sunday’s game at Cowboys Stadium. The Cowboys (4-5) made it through the difficult, road-heavy part of their schedule with their playoff path barely navigable, but navigable nonetheless. Tony Romo and company now get five of the season’s final seven games at home, and only one of those opponents Pittsburgh has a winning

record. The Browns (2-7) have more reason to think about next season than postseason as they come off their bye week. After the Cowboys, Cleveland and rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden still have the Steelers twice and a visit to Denver against Peyton Manning. “I think you try to stay away from the schedule, whether it’s good or bad,” Dallas tight end Jason Witten said. “You really can’t worry about what’s outside, and what record, and who’s playing who. You’ve got to worry about your opponent that upcom-

ing week. This league’s too hard to try to do anything else other than that.” Two weeks ago, Romo was far ahead of Weeden and the other four rookie NFL starters with 13 interceptions. But Weeden and some veterans are closing in after Romo had consecutive turnover-free games against Atlanta and Philadelphia. The Cowboys didn’t beat the Falcons, but they rallied past the Eagles sparked in part by a Romo scramble and completion that kept Dallas from trailing going into the fourth quarter. Dallas fans have always wondered what would hap-

pen if Romo ever combined risky magic acts with stingy ball protection, and they might find out in three straight home games ending with a Philadelphia rematch Dec. 2. “Every week he’s going to be challenged the same way,” coach Jason Garrett said. “We never want to get to the point where he’s got it down pat. He doesn’t have it down pat. Nobody does. That position is too challenging. So you’ve got to make sure you’re thinking about it the right way every week, you’re taking care of the ball every week and you pick your spots every week.” On the day of the

Philadelphia game, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had to respond to a report that ousted Cleveland president Mike Holmgren was interested in Dallas after he said he might return to coaching when the Browns let him go. It’s no secret that Jones and Holmgren are close, but Holmgren emphatically said he would never show interest in somebody else’s job while they still had it. The Philly win quieted the chatter, but a loss to last-place Cleveland wouldn’t help Garrett. “All your focus has to be on this week and getting one win,” Witten said.

A Ryan reunion IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan doesn’t pretend to ignore that the Cowboys are playing Cleveland for the first time since the Browns dumped him when they fired Eric Mangini two years ago. Even when he’s pretending. “Honestly, I’m going to say no,” Ryan said when asked if he had discussed this week’s personal motivation with his players. “Honestly, I haven’t talked about it. Honestly, I don’t know how that got out there.” How about dishonestly? “I’ve addressed a few things,” said Ryan, the twin brother of New York Jets coach Rex Ryan. Ryan says Sunday’s game at Cowboys Stadium is personal for a pretty simple reason. He didn’t think two years was enough to try to turn a franchise that has now missed the playoffs nine straight years and reached the postseason just twice since 1990. To him, it doesn’t really matter that Cleveland’s ownership and front office changed in midseason, and that more changes are likely in the offseason. “Anytime you pour everything you have into it and apparently management didn’t see it as it was good enough, of course it’s personal,” Ryan said. Ryan’s animosity doesn’t extend to his former players, though. He sounds like he wouldn’t mind having some of them still on his side, particularly defensive backs T.J. Ward, Sheldon Brown and Joe Haden in a secondary that has Cleveland ranked sixth in the league with 10 interceptions. “These are some of the best people I ever coached, so I still love those guys,” Ryan said. “But I plan on beating them.” Ryan’s first year in Dallas after the Cleveland firing was a little rough. The Cowboys had one of the worst pass defenses in franchise history and rarely made big plays when they needed them late in the year.


Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (27) reacts against the New York Giants Sunday in Cincinnati.

Opposite paths Bengals riding momentum vs. slipping Chiefs KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals firmly believe they’re still on the road to respectability, just as the Kansas City Chiefs are wondering if they’ll ever hit rock bottom. One thing is certain: There could be a lot of people wearing black inside Arrowhead Stadium when the teams meet on Sunday. The Bengals, coming off a confidence-boosting win over the Giants last weekend, visit a disheveled Chiefs team that’s floundered to six straight losses. Kansas City still has only led in regulation once this season, and its only win came after a franchiserecord comeback. “They’re going to come in here and feel like they have a good chance to win another game,” Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said, “but if we work on our attitude, our effort and the things we did Monday night, clean up one or two things, I think we’re going to play good. That’s the focus.” Been the focus all season, too.

turned increasingly hostile in recent weeks. Twice fans have paid for banners to be flown behind airplanes asking for general manager Scott Pioli to be fired they haven’t gotten their wish yet and this Sunday, they’re expected to come dressed in black to mourn another lost season. They should blend in well with all the Bengals fans dressed in black and orange. “We’re frustrated. Everybody is frustrated. None of us envisioned this, or none of us want to be 18, and the fans are frustrated as well,” said Cassel, who lost his job to Brady Quinn, only to get it right back when Quinn sustained his second concussion three weeks ago. Quinn still had not been cleared early in the week, meaning Cassel will start Sunday. “At the same time, we have a job to do,” Cassel continued, “and we’re going to go out there and do our job to the best of our ability. Hopefully, that results in a win and we

can change the atmosphere and the environment around here.” The environment is slowly starting to change in Cincinnati. The Bengals (4-5) made the playoffs last year for only the third time since the 1990 season, which is also the last time they won a postseason game. They haven’t made it in back-toback years since 1981-82, something that seemed all but written off just a week ago. Cincinnati started off 31, the only loss coming at perennial contender Baltimore, but then came a string of four straight losses that left some cynics saying, “Same ‘ol Cincy.” Well, the Bengals showed last Sunday that’s not the case. Facing the defending Super Bowl champions, Cincinnati roughed up Giants quarterback Eli Manning, forced four second-half turnovers and saw second-year QB Andy Dalton throw a career-best four touchdown passes each to different receivers in a 31-13 rout.

Akers looks to return to form

It hasn’t mattered. Kansas City’s latest letdown came last Monday night, when it rallied in the final minutes to force overtime at Pittsburgh. Matt Cassel promptly threw an interception after the Chiefs won the coin toss, once again snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. The Chiefs (1-8) were expected to contend for the AFC West this season. Instead, they’ve committed a league-leading 30 turnovers, suffered seasonending injuries to three starters, had both of its quarterbacks go down with concussions, and shown a startling lack of professionalism. That became evident Monday night, when the Chiefs were flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct after a group dance celebration following a touchdown that ultimately never happened. Little wonder there’s such unrest in Kansas City. Long one of the NFL’s most passionate fan bases, Chiefs supporters have

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The last thing David Akers wants to do is let down his team. And he’s not sure why he even needs to publicly say as much. Akers has been kicking footballs for a living long enough to know there are some rough stretches and he is in a bit of one for the NFC West-leading San Francisco 49ers. Only a year ago, Akers seemed almost perfect, and he practically was: setting an NFL single-season record with 44 field goals, and missing just eight kicks. This season, he is 15 for 21 and was wide left on a 41-yard try in overtime of last Sunday’s 24-24 tie with the Rams that would have won the game. No blaming this wayward kick on the Candlestick Park wind or any other elements. He just missed. “I wish I could use that,” Akers said this week,

regrouping for Monday night’s key NFC game against the Chicago Bears. “It’s something I’ve always been successful at. And when you don’t, and you let down your teammates and fans and the organization, absolutely it bothers you. I kicked very well in practice and had a great preseason. And then it’s been kind of a roller coaster.” Not that his teammates are worried. Many are still surprised the Eagles let Akers go after 12 years in Philadelphia. “David is one of the best kickers to ever play this game, so I don’t think there’s one guy in here who batted an eyelash or looked at David with any type of malice,” wide receiver Kyle Williams said. “I think he is probably the hardest guy on himself and that’s about it. Dave’s probably, we can argue, the best kicker to ever play the game. Bottom line.”

Akers, a six-time ProBowler in his 15th NFL season out of Louisville, was considered among the 49ers’ most important offseason acquisitions when they signed him to a three-year deal in late July 2011 right up there with NFL Coach of the Year Jim Harbaugh. He showed just why from Day 1, and the rest of the way as San Francisco fell just short of reaching the Super Bowl in a 20-17 overtime loss in the NFC title game to the eventual champion New York Giants. Aside from his 44 made field goals last season, Akers also set a record for most attempted at 52 and most points without a touchdown with 166. That far surpassed the 49ers’ previous best for overall points by Hall of Fame receiver Jerry Rice, no less. Rice scored 138 points in 1987. Sometimes, a kicker, or any other player, gets the breaks. Sometimes not.

■ Commentary

Goodell ■ CONTINUED FROM A7 working to reduce concussions, and others are under consideration. Violent collisions will always be the attraction of the game just as knockouts are in boxing, but it’s Goodell’s contention that big hits can be managed more safely without changing the game so much that fans won’t watch. Meanwhile, not a game goes by without someone in the announcer’s booth talking about the dangers of helmet-to-helmet hits. “Players and coaches have adjusted. They always do,” Goodell said. “We now see fewer dangerous hits to the head and noticeable changes in the way the game is being played.” The good news for today’s players is that there have been some real changes and they’ll have a better chance of having a decent life after football than players did before them. That’s especially true when it comes to the condition of their brains, though the risk of long term injury remains very real. Football is still a hurt business, and always will be. Nothing will make it completely safe, especially in an era when players seem to get bigger and faster every year. But there might come a day when there’s enough research and information available so a parent can make a decision on whether their child plays football or not. There might be a time when players themselves can assess their future health risks and decide whether to continue their careers. That will be good for the game itself, and certainly good for the NFL, which rode the wave of big hits to become by far the most popular sport in the country. No one can guarantee player safety, but it’s hard to argue with the league itself making it a priority. Left unsaid in Goodell’s speech, though, was what to do with the players of the past. Not the college players of 1904, but the NFL players of recent decades. Goodell didn’t mention them, and with good reason. Thousands of them are suing the NFL over brainrelated injuries, and the NFL is fighting them with all the lawyers it can muster at every turn. These aren’t just practice squad members or fringe players trying to cash in on short careers. There are some big names among the 3,500 plaintiffs, including Tony Dorsett and at least 26 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. One of the plaintiffs, former Atlanta Falcons safety Ray Easterling, committed suicide in April at age 62, and an autopsy found he had CTE. His widow and the other plaintiffs claim the NFL not only exposed players to risk they shouldn’t have taken, but deceived them and club doctors by insisting repeatedly that head trauma carried little long-term risk. “On the NFL’s watch, football has become the site of perhaps the gravest health crisis in the history of sports,” lawyers for the former players argued in motions last month asking a judge to reject the NFL’s efforts to dismiss their suits. The suits have the potential of costing the NFL money, and lots of it. That’s why the league has fought them so hard, no matter how at odds the stance is with the current push toward safer play. One of Goodell’s mantras in his speech at Harvard was that the game is evolving, and for the better. Change, he said, can only improve the sport and the league along with it. He’s right about that. But there’s something else the NFL can change, too. Doing something to improve the lives of the guys who helped get the league where it is today would be a good place to start.

Buccs ■ CONTINUED FROM A7 defense forced two early turnovers and held the Buccs to only three first downs in the opening half, jumping out to a 20-0 halftime lead and winning the Division V Region 20 championship 20-0 Saturday night at Welcome Stadium. Coldwater — a school that has made 16 straight playoff appearances dating back to 1997 — advances to the state semifinal round for the fourth consecutive year. “They play their butts off and make it tough on you,” Covington coach Dave Miller said. “We made some mistakes. But they did what they do, and I hope they go all the way. I really do.” In a highly-anticipated rematch from last season, a game which Coldwater won 31-7 to open the playoffs, it was the same story for the

Buccs. Covington just couldn’t move the ball. The Buccs had only nine yards on their first series, then 11 on their second drive, followed by four yards on their third. For the game, Covington — a team which averaged well over 400 yards of offense this year — was held to 173 yards compared to Coldwater’s 298. On their very first possession of the game, the Buccs opted to go for it on fourth-and-1 from their own 34. But record-breaking running back A.J. Ouellette fumbled on a quick give up the middle, which was recovered by Coldwater at the Covington 35. “That’s part of our MO,” Miller said. “That’s how we do things, we just didn’t execute. If we don’t fumble, we get it. I’ll never second guess that, the kids understand there are situations when

we need to go after it. We aren’t backing down. We just didn’t execute there.” Then moments later, Siefring received a 6-yard touchdown pass from Bruns to put the Cavaliers up 7-0 with 7:38 left in the first quarter. On Coldwater’s next series, Covington’s Brian Olson sacked Bruns for a loss of 10 to set up a thirdand-17 from the 15. But Bruns channeled his inner Ben Roethlisberger, fought off the pass rush and delivered a 30-yard strike to Brody Hoying for a first down. An illegal-hands-tothe-face penalty on Covington put 50. On the very next play, Bruns found a wide-open Siefring streaking down the right side for a 50-yard score with 3:38 to play in the opening quarter. Ouellette gave

Covington its first first down of the game on the opening play of the second quarter. The Buccs picked up another first down on a quick pass from Trent Tobias to Kyler Deeter. But Tobias was intercepted by Coldwater’s Josh Huber, giving the Cavaliers the ball at their own 25. Then Coldwater’s dynamic duo provided another big play as Bruns delivered a perfect pass to Siefring for a 39-yard gain. But when it appeared the Buccs had stopped the Cavs on a fourth-and-18 from just outside the 20, Covington was flagged for a pass interference — which gave Coldwater another first down. A few plays later, running back Jordan Chapin gave the Cavaliers a 20-0 lead on a 1-yard touchdown run with 5:37 left in the sec-

ond. After the two teams went scoreless in the third quarter, a Coldwater fumble gave Covington life early in the fourth quarter. The Buccs drove down the field, then A.J. Ouellette caught a halfback pass, ran and dove in for a 10-yard touchdown with 5:49 left in the game. The score, however, was negated due to a holding penalty. On the next play, the Buccs tried a hook and ladder on a fourth-and14, which was stopped five yards shy of the end zone. To its credit, the Covington defensive line played well all the game long, putting constant pressure on Bruns and making him earn everything he got. The Buccs had six sacks. Brian Olson had three sacks, while Cole Owens, Dylan Owens and Ian Fries each added one.

“He’s a very good player,” Miller said about Bruns. “He’s got some very talented players receivers to throw the ball to. “Our kids got after him in the second half especially. I don’t know how many sacks we had, but I thought we put up a heck of an effort against him. He’s the real deal.” Bruns finished the game 17 for 26 with 224 yards passing and two TDs. Siefring added six catches for 145 yards. Ouellette led the Buccs with 15 rushes for 69 yards. He also added two catches for 18 yards. The Cross County Conference champion Buccs finish the season at 12-1. “I’m very proud of all of our kids,” Miller said. “They have accomplished a lot, and I’m very proud of all them.”

Ready for his close-up Stenhouse Jr. wins 2nd straight Nationwide title HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) — Ricky Stenhouse Jr. left little doubt that he’s ready for a promotion. Stenhouse became the sixth driver to win consecutive championships in NASCAR’s Nationwide Series. He finished sixth Saturday in the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, edging Elliott Sadler for the title. “A lot of people put a lot of effort into this and I’m just the lucky guy who gets to drive it,” said Stenhouse, who is replacing Matt Kenseth in the Sprint Cup Series next season at Roush Fenway Racing. Stenhouse finished his final Nationwide season with six wins. About the only drama in the finale was whether he would play it safe. He did, but not without a few close calls. His spotter even had to remind him several times over the final 10 laps to avoid potential pitfalls. Stenhouse eventually obliged, but only after he held the push-to-talk button down on his steering wheel to drown out all the chatter in his helmet. “I don’t ride around,” Stenhouse said. “That’s not how we got in this position.” Regan Smith won the 300-mile race, his first victory in 103 Nationwide starts. He was making his first start since 2007, and he’s going to race for the championship next season for JR Motorsports. This was his debut race with that team, which is co-owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and had not won a race since 2010. “These guys worked hard all year long, and we’re going to do the same next

Mavs hold off Cavs, 103-95 CLEVELAND (AP) — O.J. Mayo scored 19 points and the Dallas Mavericks used a pair of 9-0 runs in the fourth quarter to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 103-95 on Saturday night. Chris Kaman scored 15 points while Vince Carter and Darren Collison added 14 apiece for Dallas, which won on the road for the second time in six games.

Kyrie Irving, who left briefly in the third quarter with a finger injury, led Cleveland with 26 points, but the Cavaliers lost their fifth straight game. Mayo hit a 3-pointer and a layup down the stretch to spark Dallas, which outscored the Cavaliers 28-22 in the final period. The Mavericks had six players score in double figures.

Dion Waiters and Daniel Gibson had 16 points apiece for Cleveland. Dallas used its first 9-0 run in the fourth to build an 87-80 lead, but five straight points by Irving cut the lead to two. Irving’s basket off a steal tied it at 89 before the Mavericks scored the next nine points. A basket by Kaman, a 3-

pointer from the corner by Mayo, a lay-in by Collison and Shawn Marion’s jumper gave Dallas a 9889 lead. Irving was forced out with 6:54 remaining in the third quarter. He squeezed his left hand and walked to the bench where he was examined by trainer Max Benton during a timeout. The two then walked to the locker room.

OSU ■ CONTINUED FROM A7 Carrier Classic on the USS Yorktown in South Carolina, but that game had to be cancelled because of condensation on the court. So the Buckeyes had played just once, a 22point home win in the opening game of this tournament last Sunday over Albany. The Rams were down just six in this one when Craft hit a 3-point shot that bounced around the rim and in with 6:45 left and then stole the ball on the other end of the court. That led to a technical foul on Rhode Island coach Dan Hurley. Thomas hit both free throws and the five-point swing gave Ohio State a 55-44 edge, its first double-digit lead of the game, and the Buckeyes held on from there. “It was exciting to play with a lot of spirit and a lot of fight against a top-5, national-caliber program that has a great chance to play in the Final Four,” said Hurley. “Based on where we are as a program, I couldn’t be happier with the way we fought, the way we competed.” Rhode Island, which came into the game off losses to Norfolk State and Virginia Tech, is rebuilding after a 7-24 season. Hurley is expecting

some growing pains in his first season with the Rams, who have just eight eligible scholarship players. Three others are transfers sitting out this season. Rhode Island hit eight of its 17 shots from 3point range to stay in the game, but was outrebounded by 10. The Rams took an early lead and were up 19-13 after back-to-back 3-pointers by Nikola Malesevic and Andre Malone more than 10 minutes into the game. Malesevic had seven points when he picked up his second and third fouls in a 12-second span in the first half and his team up 22-17. Ohio State closed the half on a 7-0 run and led 30-26 at the break. Craft had 10 of his 13 points in the first half. Malesevic picked up his fourth foul with 16:40 left and Ohio State quickly went up 38-31. But Rhode Island fought back, and came within two at 38-36 on ally-oop dunk from Mike Powell to Munford. Thomas showed his range for the Buckeyes, hitting three of his six shots from behind the arc. “We’re just going to mark it down as a win,” Thomas said. “We know we’re a team that’s can get better each and every day.”

Vote of confidence Notre Dame stays unbeaten, making case for title shot SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame got one firstplace vote in the coaches’ poll last Sunday head coach Brian Kelly’s. Against Wake Forest, the Fighting Irish reinforced his faith in his team. Everett Golson threw three touchdown passes and Cierre Wood scored on a 68yard run as No. 3 Notre Dame beat Wake Forest 380 Saturday to finish the season undefeated at home for the first time since 1998 and keep its national championship hopes alive. “I told them tonight I’m proud of them,” Kelly said. “I voted them No. 1 for a reason, because I think they’re the best team in the country. I think they played like that tonight.” Kelly, who saw his 12-0 Cincinnati team left out of the BCS title game in 2009, said he has no doubt his 110 team deserves to play for the championship if they win the season finale at Southern California. That’s all he wants his players focused on, he said. “They cannot do anything else but beat USC,” Kelly said. “The rest is up to other people to decide.” The reality of that situation is either Oregon or Kansas State the top two teams in the BCS rankings and, separately, the AP Top 25 will likely have to lose for Notre Dame to get a place in the championship. Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe seemed to think the Irish have as much right as anybody to be there. “No question about it. But maybe a couple of others should be, too. That’s kind of the deal right now,” Grobe said. “I can’t imagine anybody from what I saw today playing any better than Notre Dame. But I think there are some other really, really good teams. They impressed me today. I think there as good as any team in the country.” Wood got the Irish moving with his 68-yard burst on the game’s fourth play. Three plays later, Wake tailback Josh Harris caught a 13-yard pass but fumbled after a hard hit by Irish linebacker Carlo Calabrese and safety Zeke Motta recovered. Harris, Wake Forest’s leading rusher, didn’t play the rest of the game because of a head injury. Golson kept the Irish going with his best passing game of the season. He threw three touchdown passes of 50, 34 and 2 yards in the first half. Fourteen of his 17 firsthalf completions led to first downs as the Irish opened a 31-0 halftime lead. He finished with 346 yards on 20 of 30 passing with one interception. Wood rushed for 150 yards on 11 carries and Tyler Eifert had six catches, giving him 130 for his career, breaking the school record of 128 set by Ken MacAfee in 1977. The Irish improved to 110 for the first time since 1989 and need to beat USC to finish a regular season undefeated for the first time since 1988, the last time they won a national championship. The Demon Deacons (5-6) fell to 1-33 all-time against top 5 teams. No. 25 Kent State 31, Bowling Green 24 BOWLING GREEN — Dri Archer had two long touchdown runs and finished with 241 yards rushing, leading Kent State to its first Mid-American Conference title game. The Golden Flashes’ defense stopped Bowling Green twice within the last five minutes inside Kent State territory. Luke Wollet’s interception in the end zone with 21 seconds left sealed the victory. Bowling Green (7-4, 5-2) had driven to the Kent State 14 before coming up empty on four consecutive throws. Archer scored on runs of 79 and 74 yards for Kent

Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert , left, makes a catch over BYU defensive back Preston Hadley for a touchdown during the first half in South Bend, Ind. Saturday. State (10-1, 7-0 MAC). No. 22 Rutgers 10, Cincinnati 3 CINCINNATI — Savon Huggins ran for a careerhigh 179 yards, and Rutgers’ defense had another shut-down showing and the Scarlet Knights stayed in control of the Big East. Rutgers (9-1, 5-0) remained the only unbeaten team in conference play. The Scarlet Knights finish with games at Pittsburgh and home against No. 20 Louisville, which has one Big East loss. Huggins filled in for the injured Jawan Jamison and had a career day all around, leading an offense that did just enough. Gary Nova threw a 71-yard touchdown pass to Mark Harrison in the second quarter, and Nick Borgese made a 42yard field goal in the fourth. The league’s top defense took it from there, shutting out Cincinnati (7-3, 3-2) until Tony Miliano kicked a 36-yard field goal with 11 seconds left. No. 4 Alabama 49, Western Carolina 0 TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Eddie Lacy rushed for three first-half touchdowns and AJ McCarron set Alabama’s single-season record for passing TDs. The Crimson Tide (10-1) rebounded from a loss to No. 9 Texas A&M by building a 42-0 halftime lead against the Catamounts (1-10), a Football Championship Subdivision team with two wins in as many seasons. It was Alabama’s third shutout of the season. No. 5 Georgia 45, Georgia Southern 14 ATHENS, Ga. — Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes and Todd Gurley became only the second true freshman in Georgia history to rush for 1,000 yards. Georgia (10-1) reached 10 wins for the eighth time in Mark Richt’s dozen seasons as coach. Georgia Southern (8-3) had a shot at the halftime lead, only to get scuttled by a penalty, and Murray took control from there. No. 7 Florida 23, Jacksonville St. 0 GAINESVILLE, Fla. — No. 7 Florida used a strong defensive effort to overcome a sluggish offensive performance. The Gators scored a touchdown on their first possession when Mike Gillislee plowed into the end zone from 7 yards out. But that was the only offensive touchdown all day from

Florida. No. 8 LSU 41, Mississippi 35 BATON ROUGE, La. — Jeremy Hill scored his third touchdown with 15 seconds left to lift LSU to a victory. The game included seven turnovers, numerous momentum swings and long touchdowns, perhaps none better than Odell Beckham Jr.’s 89-yard punt return for a score that evoked memories of Billy Cannon’s famous return against the same team, along the same sideline, for the same yardage back in 1959. No. 9 Texas A&M 47, Sam Houston St. 28 COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Johnny Manziel threw for 267 yards and three touchdowns, and ran for 100 yards and two more scores in a bit more than a half for Texas A&M. The redshirt freshman threw an 89-yard touchdown pass to Uzoma Nwachukwu on A&M’s first offensive play of the second half. The dual-threat quarterback then attempted the extra point, but it sailed wide right, ending the Heisman hopeful’s day with A&M (9-2) leading 40-0. No. 10 Florida St. 41, Maryland 14 COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Devonta Freeman ran for 148 yards and two touchdowns as Florida State earned a spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Florida State (10-1, 7-1) led 27-0 at halftime and cruised to its fifth straight victory. The Seminoles clinched the league’s Atlantic Division title for the second time in three years and will play for its 13th ACC crown on Dec. 1. No. 11 Clemson 62, N.C. State 48 CLEMSON, S.C. — Tajh Boyd threw for five touchdowns and ran for three more scores to lead Clemson to a record-shattering win. The Tigers (10-1, 7-1 Atlantic Coast) gained 754 yards, two off the school record. The 110 combined points were just seven off the ACC record set by Georgia Tech and North Carolina last week. No. 12 S. Carolina 24, Wofford 7 COLUMBIA, S.C. — Kenny Miles rushed for 127 yards and a touchdown and South Carolina pulled out a closer-than-expected 24-7 win over an FCS opponent. The victory gave Steve Spurrier his 64th win in eight seasons with the Gamecocks (9-2), tying him

with Rex Enright for most ever in program history. But it wasn’t until a 17-point fourth quarter that Spurrier and South Carolina could rest easy in this one. No. 16 Nebraska 38, Minnesota 14 LINCOLN, Neb. — Taylor Martinez threw for 308 yards and two touchdowns to Kenny Bell while becoming Nebraska’s career passing leader. The Cornhuskers (9-2, 61), who had to come from behind in the second half in four of its first five Big Ten wins, scored on four of their first six possessions against the Gophers (6-5, 2-5). No. 17 UCLA 38, No. 21 USC 28 PASADENA, Calif. — Brett Hundley passed for 234 yards and a touchdown and rushed for two more scores as UCLA clinched the Pac-12 South title and snapped a five-game losing streak in the crosstown rivalry. Eric Kendricks blocked a punt and made a fourthquarter interception for the Bruins (9-2, 6-2 Pac-12), who overcame intermittent second-half rain and USC’s star-studded lineup for a gutsy victory that puts them atop Los Angeles football. Utah State 48, No. 19 La. Tech 41, OT RUSTON, La. — Kerwynn Williams scored on a 4-yard touchdown run to give Utah State a lead in overtime and the Aggies stopped Louisiana Tech on four plays to win and clinch at least a share of the Western Athletic Conference championship. Chuckie Keeton threw for 340 yards and two touchdowns, rushed for 121 yards and two touchdowns for Utah State (9-2, 5-0), which let a 24-point, third-quarter lead slip away against one of the nation’s highest scoring teams. No. 23 Michigan 42, Iowa 17 ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Devin Gardner accounted for six touchdowns to help Michigan rout Iowa. The Wolverines (8-3, 6-1 Big Ten) weren’t stopped on offense by the hapless Hawkeyes (4-7, 2-5) until Gardner threw an interception early in the fourth quarter. Oklahoma St. 59, No. 23 Texas Tech 21 STILLWATER, Okla. — Isaiah Anderson had a career-best 174 yards receiving and caught three long touchdown passes from Clint Chelf in his final home game for Oklahoma State.

■ CONTINUED FROM A7 losses we’ve had,” Montee Ball said. “Because that’s our goal.” At least the Wisconsin fans got to see Ball get the major college record for career touchdowns in his final home game. Or, part of the record anyway. Ball scored his 78th TD in the second quarter, tying the mark set by Travis Prentice of Miami (Ohio) in 1999. But he fumbled what would have been the record-breaker with 2:46 left in regulation. Ball held the ball in front of him as he leaped over the pile on the goal line, and Buckeyes linebacker Ryan Shazier met him with both fists and punched the ball loose. “That’s a dumb decision on my part,” Ball said. “But I just felt like I needed to get the ball in the end zone.” And the Buckeyes felt just as strongly that they needed to keep him out. “We knew that he needed two to break the record,” Shazier said. “We were not going to allow him to break it on us.” Ball finished with 191 yards on a career-high 39 carries. The Ohio StateWisconsin rivalry hasn’t reached the heights of “The between the Game” Buckeyes and Michigan. But it is not exactly warm and fuzzy, either, especially not after the previous two games. Two years ago, Wisconsin ended Ohio State’s hopes of a making a run at the national title, handing the then-No. 1 Buckeyes their first loss at Camp Randall. (Ohio State’s 2010 season was later erased by the NCAA sanctions.) Last year it was the Buckeyes stunning the Badgers, with Braxton Miller dancing around like a jitterbug before launching a 40-yard, game-winning heave with 20 seconds left.

Though there wasn’t any obvious chippiness Saturday, the brutal physicality of the game left no doubt the teams have begun to use each other as a measure. Wisconsin’s defense was downright nasty, limiting the highpowered Buckeyes to a mere 236 yards of offense, more than 200 yards below their average. The Buckeyes crossed the midfield only once after halftime, and the Badgers largely kept the dynamic Miller in check. But Miller made plays when he needed to, and Hyde continued to impress. “We’re certainly not a finished product on offense, and it showed,” Meyer said. “But to come down in that overtime. I think we need to give (Hyde) the ball a little bit more.” After Ball’s goal-line fumble, the Badger defense came up with one more big stop, a quick three-and-out that ensured the offense would have good field position. It was the first twominute drill for Curt Phillips, the third-string quarterback who was making his second start, and he got off to a rough start, sacked on the first play. He settled down from there, though, converting a fourth down with a 14-yard pass to Jared Abbrederis and finding him for another long gain to set up Jacob Pedersen’s 5-yard scoring catch that tied the game with eight seconds left. “Everybody kept the faith. We drove right down and scored,” Phillips said. “I was very confident going into the overtime.” But overtime was all Buckeyes. Hyde ripped off a run of 11 yards on the first play and, two plays later, strolled virtually untouched into the end zone for the go-ahead score. He also had a 15-yard scoring run in the second quarter, and finished with 87 yards on 15 carries.

Miami falls at Central Michigan MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) — Zurlon Tipton ran for 113 yards and two touchdowns to lead Central Michigan to a 30-16 win over Miami of Ohio on Saturday. Tipton carried 24 times and scored on runs of 12 and 1 yards to keep the bowl hopes alive for the Chippewas (5-6, 3-4 Mid-American). Central Michigan must defeat Massachusetts Friday in Foxboro, Mass., to be bowl eligible. Ryan Radcliff threw for 202 yards and a TD for Central Michigan, which led 21-7 at halftime. After Miami got within 21-16, Saylor Lavallii’s 10-yard touchdown run gave the Chippewas a 28-16 with 10:28 remaining. Zac Dysert ran for a score and threw a 68-yard touchdown pass to Nick Harwell for the RedHawks (4-7, 3-4). Dysert finished with 343 yards on 26-of-43 passing, but was sacked five times. He was intercepted once. Youngstown St. 27, Indiana St. 6 YOUNGSTOWN—

Kurt Hess completes 20 of 28 passes for 248 yards and two touchdowns, and Jermaine Cook runs for 124 yards and score as Youngstown State pulled away late to beat Indiana State 27-6 Saturday in Missouri Valley Conference play. After Tanner Fritschle’s 32-yard field goal tied the game for Indiana State (7-4, 5-3) at 6-all early in the third quarter, Youngstown responded by scoring the final 21 points of the game. Youngstown (7-4, 4-4) broke a 6-6 tie when Hess found Andrew Williams for a 30-yard touchdown and a 13-6 lead. Cook extended that lead to 20-6 with 14:18 left in the fourth quarter with a 24-yard touchdown run. Youngstown’s final touchdown came with 8:17 left when Hess and Williams connected again, this time for 43 yards to push the final margin of victory to 27-6. Williams finished with four catches for 91 yards.

Trying to change the way we shop JCP boss believes in new business model NEW YORK (AP) — J.C. Penney CEO Ron Johnson seems unfazed that the department store chain’s mounting losses and sales declines have led to growing criticism of his plan to change the way we shop. Perhaps that’s because this isn’t the first time during Johnson’s 30-year career that he’s attempted what seemed impossible. People predicted he’d fail at selling high-end housewares and designer dresses at discounter Target, but shoppers still flock there years later for cheap chic goods. Likewise, almost no one believed that the Apple stores he designed to sell the consumer electronics giant’s gadgets would make money. Yet Apple’s retail operations have become the most profitable in the industry. At the time, both decisions seemed radical. Now, they each are viewed as strokes of genius. But Johnson’s latest gamble is shaping up to be his biggest. He’s not only aiming to reverse the fortunes of Penney, a 110-yearold chain that has had sales declines in four of the past five years as it’s struggled to adapt to changing consumer tastes and shopping habits. He’s also attempting to do something no other retailer has before: reinvent the department store from the ground up. Since leaving Apple to become Penney’s CEO in November, Johnson has been overhauling everything from the retailer’s pricing to its merchandise to its stores. He got rid of most sales. He’s brought in hip brands. And he’s replacing rows of clothing racks with small shops that make the stores feel like outdoor mini malls. But since Penney started the changes, the chain has reported three consecutive quarters of big losses on steep sales declines. Its stock has lost more than half its value. Its credit rating is in junk status. And critics are beginning to doubt that Johnson has what it takes to make the chain cool. “He’s trying to start a retail revolution without an army of consumers behind him,” says Burt Flickinger, III, president of a retail consultancy. “Penney will suffer dire financial and competi-


A customer looks at merchandise at a J.C. Penney store in New York Oct. 12. J.C. Penney CEO Ron Johnson seems unfazed that the department store chain’s mounting losses and sales declines have led to growing criticism of his plan to change the way we shop. Perhaps that’s because this isn’t the first time during Johnson’s 30-year career that he’s attempted what seemed impossible. For instance, no one thought the stores he designed for Apple would succeed, and now they’re the most profitable in the nation. tive circumstances as a result.” But Johnson, 53, a Midwest native who speaks about his vision for J.C. Penney Co. with boyish enthusiasm, is undeterred: “Lots of people think we’re crazy. But that’s what it takes to get ahead.” Virtually no one questioned Johnson’s savvy when it was announced in June 2011 that he was leaving his role as Apple Inc.’s senior vice president of retail to take over the top job at Penney, a chain that had gained a reputation in recent years of having unhip, boring stores and merchandise. To the contrary there were lofty expectations for the man who had made Apple’s stores hip places to shop and before that, pioneered Target Corp.’s successful “cheap chic” strategy. Johnson, who says that his biggest inspirations in life are “sunrises” and “smiles,” spent several months before becoming Penney’s CEO traipsing across the globe to find ideas on how to transform the company. On the itinerary: meetings with executives at trendy retailers and designers such as Gap, J. Crew, Diane Von Furstenberg and Ralph Lauren. During these trips, Johnson hatched an idea to make Penney stores appealing not only to its core of middle-income shoppers, but

also to new groups of younger and higher-income customers. Johnson decided to focus on three areas: price, merchandise and the stores. Johnson started as Penney’s CEO in November 2011. In his first couple of months in the role, Johnson hired big-name executives that he trusted. Among them, Michael Francis, a top Target executive that he’d met while he worked there, was brought in as president to help redefine Penney’s brand. Johnson’s boldest move came on Feb. 1 of this year when he rolled out new pricing in Penney’s 1,100 stores. That’s virtually unheard of in retail, where significant changes are typically tested in a few locations for several months before being rolled out nationally. Johnson says that Penney didn’t have several months to waste. Testing would’ve been “impossible,” he says, because Penney needed quick results. Johnson’s plan was designed to wean customers off the markdowns they’d become accustomed to, but that eat into profits. He ditched the nearly 600 sales Penney offered throughout the year for a three-tiered strategy that permanently lowered prices on all items in the store by 40 percent, and offered monthlong sales on select items and periodic clearance events throughout

the year. Penney, based in Plano, Texas, also stopped giving out coupons and banished the words “sale” and “clearance” in its new “fair and square” advertising campaign. The ads were colorful and whimsical: In one spot, a dog jumped through a hula hoop that a little girl held. The text read: “No more jumping through hoops. No coupon clipping. No door busting. Just great prices from the start.” Johnson’s plan received a warm reception at first. Investors began pushing Penney’s stock up after he announced the plan in late January: It rose nearly 25 percent to peak at $43 in the days after the plan was rolled out in February. Analysts used words like “visionary” and “revolutionary” to describe the plan. The honeymoon didn’t last. After most of Penney’s coupons and sales disappeared, so did its customers. And the ads didn’t help: They were praised for being entertaining, but criticized for not explaining the new pricing. Walter Loeb, a New Yorkbased retail consultant, says Johnson acted in haste and sprang the changes on customers too soon. “The customer isn’t accustomed to such drastic change,” he says. The first sign that things were falling apart came in May when rival Macy’s Inc.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Sunday, Nov. 18, the 323rd day of 2012. There are 43 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight: On Nov. 18, 1942, “The Skin of Our Teeth,” Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning allegory about the history of humankind, opened on Broadway. On this date: In 1910, British suffragists clashed with police outside Parliament on what became known as “Black Friday.”

In 1928, Walt Disney’s first sound-synchronized animated cartoon, “Steamboat Willie” starring Mickey Mouse, premiered in New York. In 1966, U.S. Roman Catholic bishops did away with the rule against eating meat on Fridays outside of Lent. In 1978, U.S. Rep. Leo J. Ryan, D-Calif., and four others were killed in Jonestown, Guyana, by members of the Peoples Temple; the killings were followed by a night of

mass murder and suicide by more than 900 cult members. In 1987, the congressional Iran-Contra committees issued their final report, saying President Ronald Reagan bore “ultimate responsibility” for wrongdoing by his aides. In 1991, Shiite Muslim kidnappers in Lebanon freed Anglican Church envoy Terry Waite and Thomas Sutherland, the American dean of agriculture at the American University of Beirut.

Change in law eases return for defectors (AP) — HAVANA Sydney Gregory has never met her father, an Olympic silver medalist in fencing who defected from the Cuban team at a tournament in Lisbon in 2002 when she was 15 days old. But he recently rang from Italy with good news: Papa’s coming home to visit. “I’m very happy,” the 10year-old girl said, smiling in her school uniform with a headband holding back her jet-black hair. “My father called me on the phone and told me he’s going to come. I’m going to meet him!” Under Cuban law, those who abandoned their homeland have had to apply for permission to return, even for the kind of brief family visit Elvis Gregory hopes to make. Many high-profile people considered deserters have had their requests to return rejected by a communist-run government that complained about the large financial investment it made in their careers. Some didn’t even bother to ask, knowing their petitions would be turned down. But a change taking


Maria Victoria Gil negotiates through a doorway a large framed portrait of her son, swordsman Elvis Gregory, in Havana, Cuba, Friday. Gregory, an Olympic silver medalist, who defected from the Cuban team at a tournament in Lisbon in 2002, hopes to return to Cuba next year so he can finally meet his only child, a 10-yearold girl who was only 15 days old when he abandoned his country. New migratory laws have now made it possible for high-profile defectors once considered deserters or traitors to return to the homeland they abandoned. effect in January will make it simpler for Cubans to visit the homeland they abandoned. It essentially establishes a single set of rules governing the right of return that will apply to everyone who left illegally,

no matter what the circumstances of their departure. The new rules could potentially affect many leading cultural and athletic figures, from musicians and doctors to ballet dancers and former Yankee

pitcher Orlando “El Duque” Hernandez. Tens of thousands of people once considered traitors could now be welcomed home. Cuba is “normalizing the temporary entrance into the country of those who

emigrated illegally following the migratory accords of 1994 if more than eight years has gone by since their departure,” Homero Acosta, secretary of the governing Council of State, said in a recent TV program examining the changes announced last month. The migration accords with the US called for 20,000 immigration visas to be issued to Cubans each year, and for the repatriation of islanders caught at sea before reaching American shores. For Cubans who abandoned the country while on missions overseas, the rule applies to those who defected after 1990. Exiles who want to return for visits must use Cuban passports and will be able to come as often as they like. They initially will be allowed to stay up to 90 days, with possible extensions. Elvis Gregory has kept in touch with Sydney by phone and video letters over the years, and sent money to support her upbringing. He hasn’t yet booked a plane ticket home to see the girl who is his only child, preferring to

wait and see how the new rules are applied. “I’m taking this calmly. I’m going to wait for (summer school) vacation to go,” Gregory, 41, said by phone from Rome, where he teaches fencing to children. “Still, I’m going to see my daughter. I’ve been waiting for this a long time.” Gregory’s wait-and-see attitude hasn’t stopped his mother, Maria Victoria Gil, from preparing for his return. She recently removed the furniture from her living room and bought paint to spruce up the room for his visit. “Finally the ice will be broken!” Gil exclaimed, tears in her eyes. “Elvis is going to come. His family, his friends and above all my granddaughter Sydney will receive him with open arms.” Defection is a highly sensitive topic on the island, and has splintered families for years and even decades. The names of baseball players who defect suddenly disappear from newspapers. Except for gossip on the streets about their Major League exploits, it’s almost as if they never existed.

Egyptian train hits school bus, 51 people killed ASSIUT, Egypt (AP) — A speeding train that crashed into a bus carrying Egyptian children to their kindergarten on Saturday killed 51 and prompted a wave of anger against a government under mounting pressure to rectify the former regime’s legacy of neglect. The crash, which killed children between 4 and 6 years old and three adults, led to local protests and accusations from outraged Egyptians that President Mohammed Morsi is failing to deliver on the demands of last year’s uprising for basic rights, dignity and social justice.

The accident left behind a mangled shell of a bus twisted underneath the blood-splattered train outside the city of Assiut, some 200 miles (320 kilometers) south of Cairo. Children’s body parts, their books, schoolbags and tiny socks were strewn along the tracks. Um Ibrahim, a mother whose three children were on the bus, pulled her hair in grief. “My children! I didn’t feed you before you left,” she wailed in horror. A witness said the train pushed the bus along the tracks for nearly a kilometer (half a mile).

As one man picked up pieces of shattered limbs he screamed: “Only God can help!” More than a dozen injured children were being treated in two different facilities, many with severed limbs and in critical condition. Several hours after the accident, Morsi appeared on state television, promising an investigation and financial compensation for victims’ families. His transport minister and the head of Egypt’s railways resigned. “Those responsible for this accident will be held accountable,” Morsi said. The response, his critics

say, comes too little too late. For months, transport workers have been complaining about poor management and poor working conditions. Saturday’s accident falls exactly one week after two trains collided south of Cairo, killing four people. While many train accidents in Egypt are blamed on an outdated system that relies heavily on switch operators instead of automated signaling, the high death toll and fact that nearly all those killed were young children will likely give ammunition to Morsi’s critics who say he has done

little to improve life for ordinary Egyptians. Opposition activists have accused Morsi of continuing the mistakes of his predecessor by not overhauling government services. They say he is too focused on foreign policy while moving slowly to tackle a myriad of domestic problems. A day before Saturday’s accident in al-Mandara village in Assiut province, the president positioned Egypt as a new Arab champion for the Palestinians. But with more children killed in Saturday’s accident than by Israeli bombs in the Gaza

Strip since an escalation in fighting this week, he is already being called on to refocus efforts at home. “The blood of people in Assiut is more important than Gaza,” said Sheik Mohammed Hassan, a village elder speaking at the scene of the accident. Evening talk shows and state-radio programs fielded calls from an outraged public that demanded answers as to why Morsi had not visited the region Saturday and instead chose to keep his meetings in Cairo with foreign leaders seeking an end to the Gaza-Israel fighting.

25 Years Ago: Nov. 18-Dec. 1, 1987 • TROY — After all the difficulty, the turmoil and the stress the city and its school district have been through the past year regarding finances and the tension of placing a levy on the ballot three times before the people of Troy finally passed it, it came down to a coin toss to decide who would become one of the new Troy School Board members. Following three vote counts, it was determined that William Higdon and Eileen Katzenberger received the exact same amount of votes for a vacant seat on the board and, therefore, a coin would be tossed to decide the winner. Katzenberger was gracious in letting Higdon call the toss and it landed in his favor. In an election that was meant to bring new blood onto the embattered board and distance us from recent controversy, a coin toss did little to bring more unity to the concerned community. • TROY — The Troy Sports Center has new ownership. It was announced that Fred and Carol Middleton recently purchased the longtime Troy business from Tom Penny. Fred Middleton, formerly a barber, who has had a lifelong love for sports and has worked in the store for 14 years, thought the purchase made good sense when the opportunity presented itself. Fred and Carol will make a business of supplying all your sporting needs. (Columnist’s Note: The Troy Sports Center has been in business under several owners since 1956, but no one longer than the Middletons. Congratulations to Fred and Carol who celebrate 25 years of ownership this month. The Middletons

75 Years Ago: Nov. 18-Dec. 1, 1937 • MIAMI COUNTY — A harsh cold wave has reminded us in Ohio and, particularly, in Miami County that winter is quickly approaching. Last evening several inches of snow blanketed our area and the temperature near Troy this morning was recorded at 16 degrees above zero, which is a new record for this time of year. Most of Ohio received varying amounts of snow, except the southeastern portion, which was still warm enough to have rain. The temperature was not expected to rise above freezing anytime today.

Keep up the good work!). 50 Years Ago: Nov. 18-Dec. 1, 1962 • MIAMI COUNTY — “What can we be thankful for today? Peace? But there is no peace. All over the world there is war and the threat of war. Freedom? But freedom is under attack everywhere and behind the Iron Curtain and on an island close to our own shores, there is no freedom. Then is there nothing to be thankful for? Yes, there is. We can be thankful there are men who believe in God the Creator and believe in the inherent worth of all men created in the image of God. If the forces of evil are strong, if there are too many receiving the benefits of freedom who are hesitating and weak in the support of freedom, there are still those who believe in God and the dignity of man — and these, we pray, will be the ones who prevail. Thanksgiving Day, 1962, should be a day of prayer that this hope for the future will be realized and not destroyed.” (Columnist’s Note: This was a Troy Daily News editorial from Nov. 22, 1962).

• PIQUA — Ground was broken this morning (Nov. 20) for the new YMCA building in Piqua. The new structure will be built on the site of the former building at the corner of North High and Downing streets. The three major contractors that were awarded the contracts for the building were the Peterson Construction Co. of Wapakoneta — general contracting; The Tibbetts Plumbing and Heating Co. of Dayton — heating and ventilating; and the Silver Electric Co. The new building will include a lounge, a game room, two locker-shower rooms, a classroom, administrative offices, a 54 x 80 foot gymnasium, three club rooms, a 35 x 50 social pupose room and a banquet hall. The swimming pool and handball courts, which already exist, will be renovated and included in the new building. The old YMCA building which served the city for many years was razed last summer in prreparation for the new edifice. 75 Years Ago: Nov. 18-Dec. 1, 1937 • BETHEL TOWNSHIP — The residents of this township will have to look elsewhere for their libations since Bethel is now officially “Dry.” The majority of voters in the recent election came out in favor of no alcohol in the township, therefore, the State Liquor

Board sent a notice to Prosecuting Attorney E.A. Kerr that four licenses in the township were being revoked. The four license holders who are affected are Elizabeth Bodiker, Joe Ens, H.G. Whitacre, and Mina Anderson. These can legally sell alcohol until they receive the notice, which should be very soon.

The ‘$5 doctor’ practices medicine from bygone era RUSHVILLE, Ill. (AP) — Patients line up early outside his office just off the town square, waiting quietly for the doctor to arrive, as he has done for nearly 60 years. Dr. Russell Dohner is, after all, a man of routine, a steady force to be counted on in uncertain times. Wearing the fedora that has become his trademark, he walks in just before 10 a.m., after rising early to make rounds at the local hospital. There are no appointments. He takes his patients in the order they sign in — first come, firstserved. His office has no fax machines or computers.

Medical records are kept on hand-written index cards, stuffed into row upon row of filing cabinets. The only thing that has changed, really other than the quickness of the doctor’s step or the color of his thinning hair, is his fee. When Dohner started practicing medicine in Rushville in 1955, he charged the going rate around town for an office visit: $2. Now it is $5. This in an era when the cost of healthcare has steadily risen, when those who don’t have medical insurance often forgo seeing a doctor. But not

Dohner’s patients. He doesn’t even accept medical insurance — says it’s not worth the bother. “I always just wanted to be a doctor to help people with their medical problems and that’s all it’s for,” the 87-year-old family physician says. “It was never intended to make a lot of money.” Being a doctor, helping and providing a service that has been his goal since he was a boy. One of seven children, Dohner grew up on a farm just north of Rushville, outside the little town of Vermont, Ill. His father had hoped he’d take up farming, too. But young Dohner had other ideas, inspired by the town doctor who’d treated him when he had seizures as a child. “I remember waking up and seeing the doctor there and thinking, ‘THAT is what I want to do,’” he says. After serving in the Army in World War II, Dohner went to Western Illinois University, paying for his education with funds provided by the G.I. bill. In the early 1950s, he attended Northwestern University’s medical school. He had his sights set on becoming a cardiologist and thought about staying in the big city. But when a doctor in Rushville asked him to put off his heart specialist studies to practice medicine back at home, he agreed to do so, at least for a little while. Then that doctor left town. “So I couldn’t very well leave,” Dohner says. “That’s just the way it worked out.” It was a sacrifice, yes. His young wife didn’t want to stay in such a small town, he says, and so their marriage ended. He never remarried and instead dedicated his life to his work, only leaving this


Dr. Russell Dohner, right, talks with nurse Rose Busby about a patient’s prescription in Rushville, Ill., Oct, 30. In an era of rising healthcare costs, the 87-year-old doctor only charges patients $5 per office visit and doesn’t take insurance. small central Illinois town for medical conferences over the years, never taking a true vacation. Even when the medical profession changed around him, he was always on call, ready to drop everything for a patient. Carolyn Ambrosius, now 69, recalls how her mother went to an obstetrician in Springfield when she was pregnant at age 41, a rarity back then. The doctor there told her that either she’d survive or the baby would, but not both of them a prognosis her mother refused to accept. So she went back to Rushville. “God’s going to take care of us and Dr. Dohner,” Ambrosius remembers her mother saying. And the doctor did, coming to their home each day to check on her during the pregnancy, and often staying to eat meals with the family after he’d completed his exams. “I’m not sure if he remembers,” Ambrosius now says. (By now, the story is vaguely familiar

to Dohner. He’s delivered a lot of babies in Rushville “nearly the whole town,” by some estimates.) But her mother did survive. “And my baby brother is now 52,” Ambrosius says, standing outside Dohner’s office on a crisp fall day after coming in for a check-up. Stories like that are common around this town, a quaint place with cobblestone streets around the main square and majestic old mansions, some of which have seen better days. It’s the sort of place where patients give their doctor a gift or bring baked goods to say thank you. The walls of Dohner’s office hold items such as a homemade clock adorned with shiny beads, embroidery, cards, photos and paintings, including one of the doctor fishing, once a favorite pastime. These days, though, it takes all his energy just to rise before 7 a.m. to head to the hospital, then to his office and back to the hospital, where the “Doctors’ Dictating Lounge,” named

On Sundays, he sees patients before church and stops by the hospital afterward. He’s there, indeed, like clockwork. But as much as townspeople have grown to count on him, they also worry, as he’s become increasingly frail. “He’s going to be dearly missed, not just in town but the three- or fourcounty area around the town, you know, because people come from all over just to him,” says Robert Utter, a 37-year-old emergency medical technician who’s been a patient since he was a small boy. The doctor’s staff is aging, too. One of his nurses, Rose Busby, is 86. His secretary, Edith Moore, who grew up living next door to the Dohner farm, is 85. “You been here before?” Moore asks many patients who step up to the office window to sign in throughout the day. Though she may not remember everyone, she’s not surprised when they answer, “Yes.” “Everybody in the world has been here before,” she says, somehow managing to find each patient’s index card in the filing cabinets that run down the hallway. “They’re full,” she says.

Doctor urges common-sense solutions to concussions in young athletes BY TIM STEVENS Raleigh News and Observer


Concussions are commonly associated with big bodies, big hits and football. But that sort of thinking puts children in jeopardy, said Dr. Robert Cantu, one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading experts on traumatic brain injuries, because concussions also occur in soccer, baseball, softball and even cheerleading. And it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take a big hit to the head to cause a concussion, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No head trauma is a good head trauma,â&#x20AC;? Cantu said in a recent interview from Boston. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I could pick one thing that I wish everyone understood, it would be that no head trauma is a good head trauma.â&#x20AC;? More than 4 million sports- and recreation-related concussions are identified each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but Cantu said many times that number go undiagnosed. Football and ice hockey have the highest risk of concussion among young players. A recent study indicated that there are approximately 67,000 diagnosed concussions among high school football players each year, but Cantu, whose new book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Concussions and Our Kidsâ&#x20AC;? stresses that common-sense solutions can make sports safer for young athletes, wants parents and coaches to understand that concussions occur regularly in many sports. According to Cantu: â&#x20AC;˘ The person at the top of a cheerleader pyramid is 10 times more likely to suffer a concussion or a catastrophic injury than a football player. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine many things as risky as throwing someone 20 feet in the air with only a few sets of arms between her and a hardwood floor,â&#x20AC;? Cantu writes. The National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research at the University of North Carolina noted that there were two high school cheerleading catastrophic injuries during

Helmets prevent most concussions. Wrong. Helmets are important, but no helmet can prevent a concussion. Concussions are caused by jarring the brain. C. The next concussion is always more serious than the

last. Wrong. Every concussion is unique. Multiple concussions are a reason for concern because they can lower the brainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resistance to the next concussion. D. Three concussions and your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletic career is over. Wrong. There is no magic number. A player should be completely symptom free before returning to play. E. Boys have more concussions than girls. Wrong. A 2007

study indicated that in high school soccer, the girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concussion rate is 68 percent higher than the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concussion rate. In high school basketball, research indicates the girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rate is three times the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rate. F. Mouth guards prevent concussions. Wrong. There is no scientific evidence for the claim. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Source: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Concussions and Our Kidsâ&#x20AC;? by Dr. Robert Cantu

SIMPLE TESTS PARENTS CAN DO There is no surefire test that parents can use to determine whether their child needs to see a medical professional for a possible traumatic brain injury, but parents should be observant and ask their child about how he or she is feeling. Is there a headache? Are the headaches getting worse? Is it hard to concentrate? Does homework cause a headache? A simple test: A. What was the score of the last game? B. What team were you playthe 2009-2010 school year and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons estimated there were 10,000 concussions in 2011 among cheerleaders, gymnasts and dancers. â&#x20AC;˘ Head-first slides and helmets without straps should be banned in baseball. â&#x20AC;˘ More high school soccer players had concussions in 2010 than basketball, baseball, wrestling and softball players combined, according to the Center for Injury Research and Policy in Columbus. Female high school soccer players suffered 25,953 concussions in 2010 and males had 20,247. For comparison, male basketball players had 11,013 concussions. A concussion is a disruption

No tackle football before age 14. of the normal chemical activity in the brain and is caused by the brain being jarred. Concussions can cause sensitivity to light or sound, headaches, loss of memory, dizziness, balance problems, confusion, drowsiness, nausea, difficulty in concentration and other problems. Concussion symptoms disappear within seven to 10 days in approximately 80 percent of cases, but symptoms may remain for weeks, months and, occasionally, for years. Cantu said 90 percent of the soccer-related concussions that he treats are related to heading accidents and he believes eliminating heading in soccer until players are 14 years old would move soccer from among the

Cantu said he is not so concerned about the ball hitting the playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; heads (only 7 percent of female soccer injuries come from head-to-ball contact, according to the CIRP), but he is very concerned with elbows, shoulders, knees, heads and other body parts smashing into playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; heads as they attempt to head the ball. In baseball and softball, sliding head-first is inherently dangerous and should be eliminated on the youth level, said Cantu, who is chief of neurosurgery and chairman of the Department of Surgery at Emerson Hospital in Concord, Mass. The chance of the ball and the head arriving at the

same moment or the head crashing into another player are too great to allow the use of headfirst slides, he said. The danger is heightened by the use of helmets that can easily fall off during play. Why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t baseball batting helmets have a chin strap? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Probably because helmets have always been made without a strap,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If helmets were made by someone who had operated on a hematoma in a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brain, the helmets would have straps.â&#x20AC;? Cantu also said all field hockey and lacrosse players should wear helmets. Despite arguments by some in the sports that there would be more blows to the head if field hockey players and female lacrosse players wore helmets, Cantu believes that if you hand athletes sticks and encourage them to swing them, there has to be protection for the head. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But helmets eventually will be mandatory in these two sports,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are too many facial injuries, fractured skulls and concussions that could have been prevented. The change will be made soon, so why not make it now?â&#x20AC;? Cantu doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want children to stop playing sports but he wants them to play as safely as possible. Children are much more susceptible to concussions than adults. Their heads are proportionately larger and their brains still are developing. Cantu is emphatic that children younger than 14 should not play collision sports. He believes ice hockey should ban contact in leagues for children until age 14 and that children shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play tackle football until they are 14. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is important for children to be involved in sports,â&#x20AC;? Cantu said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I enjoy sports very much. But we need to keep the proper perspective. The childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s status on the team isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as important as their health. Sports are great. They can teach great values. But parents have to think about the health of their child.â&#x20AC;?

John Holmes, left, and Becca Stott, both of Philadelphia, tour an exhibit on Prohibition at the National Constitution Center, in Philadelphia, Nov. 8.The exhibit runs through April 2013. It will then travel to museums in Seattle; St. Paul, Minn.; St. Louis; Austin, Texas; and Grand Rapids, Mich.

The rise and fall of Prohibition Hatchet, speakeasy help tell tale of dry era PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A hatchet used to bust up saloons, the verdict sheet from Al Capone’s trial, and lawman Eliot Ness’ sworn oath of office are among the more sobering artifacts in a new exhibit documenting the driest period in U.S. history. But the items help tell a lively tale as part of “American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition.” The installation now on view at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia also includes a recreated speakeasy, where visitors can learn the lingo and fashions of the Roaring ’20s and even how to dance the Charleston. “We’ve never had as much fun building an exhibition,” said Stephanie Reyer, one of its developers. “Of the 27 amendments we have to work with, this is by far the sexiest.” Exhibit organizers describe the 18th Amendment, which essentially banned alcohol from 1920 to 1933, as the country’s “most colorful and complex constitutional hiccup.” Yet they say the lessons of Prohibition remain relevant in current debates over issues like legalizing marijuana and the role of government in private lives. To that end, the exhibit aims to answer a simple question: “How did this happen?” And the first step, of course, was admitting the nation had a drinking problem. In 1830, the average American downed 90 bottles of 80-proof liquor per year three times current consumption. Women were among the imbibers, as evidenced by the exhibit’s bottle of Lydia Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound: The remedy for

and organized crime. There’s also a section on products that filled the alcoholic void, from Hires root beer to perfectly legal “malt syrup.” Ahem. An interactive quiz set amid “church pews” lets visitors see if they’d be considered a “dry” or a “wet.” One custom-made video game illustrates the difficulties of intercepting illegal booze, while another tests knowledge of loopholes that permitted alcohol consumption. Also on view: A letter from Susan B. Anthony seeking a partnership between suffragists and temperance crusaders; Pennsylvania’s original ratification copy of the 18th Amendment; and bootlegger Roy Olmstead’s phone, the subject of a landmark wiretapping case. The final sections of the exhibit deal with the repeal of Prohibition and its legacy, which includes the radical variations in liquor laws found among states today. America’s dry era left an Jerry Kaplan, of Philadelphia, tours an exhibit on Prohibition at the National Constitution Center in “indelible mark” on the country, Philadelphia. according to exhibit curator Daniel Okrent, author of “Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition.” “And though it may have been a wild card in our constitutional history, it came into being through the invention and deployment of political tactics and strategies still in play today,” Okrent said in a statement. The exhibit, which Reyer described as the center’s biggest and most ambitious, runs through April.

Frederik Meijer Gardens celebrates GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park is hosting its 18th annual “Christmas and Holiday Traditions Around the World” exhibition. This year’s exhibition runs from Nov. 20 through Jan. 6 and highlights the Railway Garden. More than 40 international holiday trees and displays also will be showcased. During the event, Meijer Gardens transforms into a

botanical wonderland with poinsettias, orchids and amaryllis. Horse-drawn carriage rides will be available through the candlelit Sculpture Park, along with the sounds of carolers and hand bells.

Titanic jewelry on display in Atlanta DORAVILLE, Ga. — Most of the jewelry recovered from the wreckage of the Titanic will go on public display for the first time with a three-city tour. The jewelry is from a single

purser’s bag found during a 1987 research and recovery mission. The collection includes diamond and sapphire rings, brooches, necklaces, cuff links and a gold pocket watch. Although single pieces of the jewelry have been on display at one or more permanent and traveling exhibits sponsored by Premier Exhibitions Inc., their Atlanta debut is the first time the majority of the collection has been available to the public. The exhibit opens Friday at Premier’s display gallery at the Atlantic Station gallery in Atlanta.

After a two-month exhibit in Atlanta, the jewels will travel to Orlando, Fla., and Las Vegas.

AAA predicts increased travel NEW YORK — The number of Americans hitting the road this Thanksgiving is expected to increase slightly from a year ago. But they’ll take shorter trips to save on gas and other costs as household budgets remain tight. AAA says Tuesday in its annual Thanksgiving forecast

that a stronger economy is needed to spur a bigger jump in holiday travel growth. AAA predicts 43.6 million Americans will travel at least 50 miles from home over Thanksgiving, up just 0.7 percent from last year. A dramatic drop in gas prices should help holiday travel. The national average has declined 35 cents per gallon in the last month. AAA expects further declines through the holiday, although the price of gas on Thanksgiving Day should be close to last year’s record of $3.32 per gallon.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Anna Kareninaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; inspires 5 super-stylized films LOS ANGELES (AP) Joe Wrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambitious, technically dazzling adaptation of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anna Karenina,â&#x20AC;? set almost entirely within the confines of a decaying 19th-century theater, inspires this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list: five movies that are so super-stylized, their artifice is part of the art. Movies by people like Zack Snyder (â&#x20AC;&#x153;300,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;?Sucker Punchâ&#x20AC;?) and Tarsem Singh (â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Cell,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;?Immortalsâ&#x20AC;?) can be incredibly cool-looking but often thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all they are. These are movies that are cool-looking AND provocative. They may even have something to say, which takes them to a whole other level of cultural significance that makes them groundbreaking: â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mindâ&#x20AC;? (2004): From the fertile mind of screenwriter Charlie Kaufman comes this wildly imaginative and deeply melancholy story of love, loss and longing. Jim Carrey plays against type as an uptight, jilted lover who tries to have flaky ex-girlfriend Clementine (Kate Winslet) erased from his memory. As a decidedly low-tech medical crew (Kirsten Dunst, Mark Ruffalo and Elijah Wood, among the

strong supporting cast) enters Joelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brain to hunt down his memories, he realizes too late that he wants to keep them. Individual visual moments are stirring in director Michel Gondryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s film as he explores the hazy area between whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s imagined: a flooded house, a frozen pond at night, an empty, snow-covered beach. â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wizard of Ozâ&#x20AC;? (1939): For that moment alone when it shifts from the sepiatoned idyll of a Kansas farmhouse to vibrant color as Dorothy and Toto enter the land of Oz. The transition was so dramatic and so unprecedented. Most films were still being shot in black and white back then so seeing this major transition for the first time must have been extraordinary for viewers. Of course, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all seen it a million times by now but that first shot, when Dorothy hesitantly opens the door after the tornado, still provides a thrill. â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;&#x153;Synecdoche, New Yorkâ&#x20AC;? (2008): Another from Charlie Kaufman, only this time he does the directing honors for the first time as well as writing the typically intricate script. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t love this movie the way a

to share directing credits with the author. Together theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve created a vivid dystopia of severe black and white with dramatic splashes of color. Created entirely on green screen, it features 1,800 effects shots, many of which are extremely, cartoonishly violent. But while â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sin Cityâ&#x20AC;? is dark, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also darkly funny, and certainly never boring. â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zentropaâ&#x20AC;? (1991): The first Lars von Trier film I saw and one that wowed me with its bold visuals. But really, so AP PHOTO/FOCUS FEATURES, DAVID LEE, FILE many of the Danish directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s In this undated publicity file photo released by Focus Features, films would fit into this categoactors Kate Winslet, left, and Jim Carrey are seen in a scene from ry, from the minimalist the film â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dogvilleâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Manderlay,â&#x20AC;? which resemble plays on film, to the artfully cruel â&#x20AC;&#x153;Melancholiaâ&#x20AC;? physical rendering of an exislot of people do Roger Ebert tential crisis, one thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s painful- and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Antichrist.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;?Zentropa,â&#x20AC;? declared it the best film of the ly dreamlike and wistfully sur- about an American working as decade but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deny how a sleeping car conductor on a real. much I admire the ambition of train line in post-World War II â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sin Cityâ&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Anna Kareninaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; artifice is wondrous, distracting All the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a stage, very literally, in Joe Wrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wildly theatrical adaptation of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anna Karenina.â&#x20AC;? If you thought the directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five-and-a-halfminute tracking shot in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Atonementâ&#x20AC;? was showoffy, you ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen nothing yet. Wright and screenwriter Tom Stoppard (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shakespeare in Loveâ&#x20AC;?) have taken Leo Tolstoyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s literary behemoth about love, betrayal and death among the elite in imperial Russia and boldly set it almost entirely within a decaying theater. The inspiration comes from the notion that the members of high society conducted themselves as if they were performing on stage. The result is technically dazzling, a marvel of timing and choreography. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anna Kareninaâ&#x20AC;? is at once cleverly contained and breathtakingly fluid; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crammed with rich, intimate detail yet moves with a boundless energy that suggests anything is possible. A character walks across the floor and people dress him as he goes. Sets slide into an empty space at the precise moment to create a cozy surrounding. And the sense of movement is just memorable from a sound design perspective: the rapid flapping of a fan seamlessly transforms into the thundering of horse hooves, for example. But wondrous as all this artifice is, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a huge distraction. The selfconsciousness of the structure keeps us at armâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s length emotionally. Snow globes and Faberge eggs are just as tidy and ornate but more capable of eliciting a response from the viewer. Rather than feeling the suffering of the adulterous Anna (Keira Knightley), weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more likely to notice how beautiful the suffering looks the flattering lighting, her

A year in, YouTube’s channels not yet must-see NEW YORK (AP) — When Google announced its plans to fund some 100 new channels of original programming on YouTube, many expected a transformation in television. Google had disrupted other industries and TV appeared to be next in line. The YouTube channels were trumpeted as the next iteration in television: Just as a handful of networks begat a few hundred cable channels, YouTube would now foster the birth of thousands of channels online. The revolution has not yet been YouTubed. Though a year later such a cultural sea change isn’t palpable and likely shouldn’t be expected so soon, YouTube’s developing platform of original programming is gradually taking shape, building steadily into an enormous, global video ecosystem wherein the tools to produce a mini TV station are anyone’s. YouTube is now doubling down on its investment. It recently expanded into Europe with another 50-plus channels. And now, YouTube is reinvesting in 40 percent of the channels that have already launched. That means more than half of the channels have failed to catch on, yet is still a rate of success that any network programmer would kill for. But for YouTube, success at this stage is measured less by view counts than by changing perception. “What we’re trying to do is galvanize the creative and advertising community,” Robert Kyncl, YouTube’s global head of content and the leader of its channels initiative, said in an interview. “And we’re succeeding at that.” Since it was founded in 2005, YouTube has been predominately the home of user-created video. But by putting out a welcome mat to Hollywood, the site is trying to lure viewers to stay for longer and coax advertisers to pair their brands with known talent. Kyncl says the first year has been one of defining where YouTube’s channels fit into the media landscape. “I feel we’re 300 percent smarter than we were in January,” he says. YouTube has declined to make public the size of its investment. The initial channel launch was reportedly fueled by $100 million, a number YouTube executives dispute. Kyncl will go no further than to confirm the $200 million he pledged to spend marketing the channels at YouTube’s TV-style upfront presentation to advertisers in May a flashy event capped by a performance by Jay-Z, who recently launched a lifestyle channel called Life and Times. Jamie Byrne, director of content strategy, said the second round of funding would be relatively similar to the amount of the first round, on a per channel basis. Those not being offered more money aren’t canceled; they are encouraged to keep going, but will have to pay their own way. A simple glance at the site reveals how central the channels initiative is to YouTube. The fabric of the video behemoth where 72 hours of video are uploaded every minute has been reoriented to emphasize a user’s playlist of channels, a move that has increased channel subscribers by 50 percent, executives say. It may sound like a small tweak, but behind it is the mission to alter the very nature of YouTube.

everything enacted or set as policy immediately set precedent. What emerges is a Jefferson who utilized his power and charisma to get what he desired. He promised on his wife’s deathbed to never marry again. But given the social mores of the time, Jefferson could flirt with married women and take one of his young slaves as a lover. Meacham takes much of the historical material that could be dry and difficult to read and makes it sing. His extraordinary

research unveils a new Jefferson and a fresh approach to the time period. The view through the filter of Jefferson’s skills as a leader and how he influenced everyone around him proves to be both intriguing and perceptive. Many books have been written about Jefferson, but few are as good as this one. While it may not be the definitive book about him, it’s close. “Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power” is an essential volume for both the casual reader and the biography scholar.

Rate on 30-year mortgage hits record 3.34 percent WASHINGTON (AP) — Average U.S. rates on fixed mortgages fell to fresh record lows this week, a trend that has helped the housing market start to recover this year. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac says that the average rate on the 30-year loan dipped to 3.34 percent, the lowest on records dating back to 1971. That’s down from 3.40 percent last week and the previous record low of 3.36 percent reached last month. The average on the 15-year fixed mortgage also dropped to 2.65 percent. That’s down from 2.69 percent last week and also a new record. The average rate on the 30-year loan has been below 4 percent all year. It has fallen further since the Federal Reserve started buying mortgage bonds in September to encourage more borrowing and spending. Low mortgage rates have helped boost sales of newly built and previously occupied homes this year. Home prices are also increasing, and builders are more confident and starting work on more new homes. Lower rates have also persuaded more people to refinance. That usually leads to lower monthly mortgage payments and more spending. Consumer spending drives nearly 70 percent of economic activity. Still, the housing market has a long way to a full recovery. And many people are unable to take advantage of the low rates, either because they can’t qualify for stricter lending rules or they can’t afford the larger down payments that many banks require. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country on Monday through Wednesday of each week. The average doesn’t include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for 30-year loans was 0.7 point, unchanged from last week. The fee for 15year loans also remained at 0.7 point. The average rate on a one-year adjustablerate mortgage declined to 2.55 percent from 2.59 percent. The fee for one-year adjustable rate loans one-tenth to 0.3 point. The average rate on a five-year adjustablerate mortgage ticked up to 2.74 percent from 2.73 percent.

At the end of the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s, homeowners in many areas cashed in big profits when they sold. This enabled them to trade up to a bigger home, sometimes in a better neighborhood. Homeowners used their homes as piggy banks through the use of home equity lines of credit to buy cars, pay for vacations and medical bills, renovate their homes, and pay for college educations and retirement. The recent housing recession brought a halt to this as home values dropped 30 percent or more, depending on location, wiping out equity for some and leaving many

the University of California, Berkeley, showed that homes with a “green label” sold for approximately 9 percent more than comparable nonlabeled homes. A green-label home is labeled by Energy Star, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), and GreenPoint Rated. There’s a certain amount of luck involved in making a profit on a home sale. For instance, buying a home in the next hot spot and waiting for the neighborhood to turn around before you sell could yield a tidy profit. A neighborhood that’s adjacent to one that’s already highly desirable might be a good place to look. Patience will work for you if your aim is to come out financially whole or ahead of the game when you sell. Plan to hold for the long term. Don’t sell in a down market.

HOME TIPS • Don’t match everything. It’s as if everything came from the same store at the same time. There’s no personality or individual expression in a room like that. • Do mix. Taking a room that has a neutral color palette and adding items from your travels, family pieces and unique finds is a really simple way to make that room more interesting.!

INGREDIENTS: 1 cup butter, softened 1/3 cup sugar 2 teaspoons milk

2 teaspoons vanilla 2 cups sifted flour 1/2 cup chopped black walnuts Confectionersʼ sugar

Chop carrot, celery, and onions and add to the pot. Cook vegetables with meat for five (5) minutes and then add wine. Cook for one (1) minute; add stock and tomatoes to the pot. Stir in parsley, cinnamon, and season the sauce with salt and pepper. Bring sauce to a boil, reduce heat to medium low, and cook for twenty-five (25) minutes before serving. While the sauce is simmering, bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and drop in the penne pasta and cook until al dente.

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.
