Supercommittee’s deadline looms House rejects balanced-budget mandate

OSU prepares for Penn State Penn State interim coach Tom Bradley remains hopeful heading into Saturday’s game at Ohio State, even though history clearly isn’t on the Nittany Lions’ side. They’ve only won twice in their last 10 trips to the Horseshoe. “The ‘Shoe hasn’t been a great place for us,” Bradley said. See Page 15.

(AP) — WASHINGTON Rejecting the idea Congress can’t control its spending impulses, the House turned back a Republican proposal Friday to amend the Constitution to dam the rising flood of federal red ink. Democrats and a few GOP lawmakers said damage from the balanced-budget mandate would out-

weigh any benefits. The first House vote in 16 years on making federal deficits unconstitutional came as the separate bipartisan “supercommittee” appeared to be sputtering in its attempt to find at least $1.2 trillion in deficit reductions to head off major automatic cuts. The lead Republican on that

If you squint your eyes a bit, Troy business owner Dave Denoyer could pass for Santa Claus with his spirit of giving — suspenders and all. On Friday, Christmas came early as Denoyer, owner of Dave’s Services, played jolly ol’ Saint Nick by installing a brand new furnace in the home of Edward Grigsby — DENOYER free of charge. Dave’s Services installed a complete Bryant furnace system with a 10year extended warranty in Grigsby’s home on Dakota Street Friday. Last summer, Dave


David Boggs, a serviceman from Dave’s Services, removes the vent from an old furnace system Friday at Edward Grigsby’s home. Grigsby was selected to receive a brand new Bryant heating system from Dave’s Services free of charge. Denoyer and his staff wanted to give back to his hometown where he was born and raised and continues to do business since 1984. “The word blessing comes to my mind numerous times,” Denoyer said, while visiting with Grigsby and his daughter Melissa

Gladman as the furnace was being installed. Denoyer said in his business, he and his employees often come across people who are struggling to keep their homes warm in the winter. “We sometimes go into homes where they are using space heaters, which

can be so dangerous,” Denoyer said. “I see the frustration when people can’t afford to heat their homes so I wanted to do this for my hometown.” Denoyer said throughout his career in the heating and cooling business,

WASHINGTON (AP) — The latest evidence that the economy is making steady gains emerged Friday from a gauge of future economic activity, which rose in October at the fastest pace in eight months. A string of better-thanexpected economic reports this month has led some analysts to revise up their forecasts for growth. Still, they caution that their brighter outlook remains under threat from Europe’s financial crisis. “Things are looking better than we thought they would — not great, but better,” said David Wyss, former chief economist at Standard & Poor’s. The most recent sign was Friday’s report by the Conference Board that its index of leading economic indicators surged 0.9 percent last month. It was the index’s best showing since February. And it was far faster than the increases of 0.1 percent September and 0.3 percent in August. The index is designed to predict economic activity. The October figure marked the sixth straight increase. The jump reflected gains in nine of the index’s 10 components. Leading the

panel said members were “painfully, painfully aware” of its Wednesday deadline for action and would work through the weekend. The House voted 261-165 in favor of the measure to require annual balanced budgets, but that was 23 short of the twothirds majority needed to

advance a constitutional amendment. Democrats overwhelmingly opposed the proposal, arguing that such a requirement would force Congress to make devastating cuts to social programs. Most Republicans favored the measure, but there were prominent exceptions. Budget Committee Chairman

Sidney Police say a single shot was fired inside Sidney’s Gas America during an armed robbery early Friday morning. Police responded at 2:49 a.m. Friday to the Gas America, 1501 St. Marys Road, on a report of an armed robbery. Mike Lescowitch, chief humane officer for the Shelby County Humane Society, was working at the gas station at the time of the robbery. Two men entered the business, demanded money and then pulled out a handgun, according to Lescowitch. During the incident, one of the suspects fired a shot in the store,



however, no one was injured. Lescowitch also stated that he believed the police were able to get the slug out of the wall. “I’m really proud of the Sidney PD and the sheriff ’s office,” Lescowitch said. “The guy shot my root beer machine but I’m OK. Sidney PD arrived within a couple of minutes.” As Sidney officers arrived they

Amendment • Continued from 1 Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the party’s point man on budgetary matters, agreed with GOP colleagues that “spending is the problem.” But he added that “this version of the balanced budget amendment makes it more likely taxes will be raised, government will grow and economic freedom will be diminished.” Likewise, Rules Committee Chairman David Dreier, R-Calif., said lawmakers should be able to find common ground without changing the Constitution, and he expressed concern that lawsuits filed if Congress failed to balance the budget could

result in courts making decisions on cutting spending or raising taxes. In all, 235 Republicans and 25 Democrats voted for amendment, four the Republicans and 161 Democrats opposed it. The other two Republicans voting no were Justin Amash of Michigan and Louie Gohmert of Texas. Later in the day, the top Republican on the deficitreduction supercommittee indicated no deal was near but efforts would continue through the last weekend before Wednesday’s deadline. “We are painfully, painfully aware of the deadline that is staring us in the face,” said Rep. Jeb

Hensarling, R-Texas. “When we have something more to report, we will report.” With the national debt now topping $15 trillion and the deficit for the just-ended fiscal year passing $1 trillion, supporters of the constitutional amendment declared it the only way to stop out-of-control spending. The government now must borrow 36 cents for every dollar it spends. “It is our last line of defense against Congress’ unending desire to overspend and overtax,” Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, said as the House debated the measure. But Democratic leaders worked aggressively to

defeat it, saying that such a requirement could force Congress to cut billions from social programs during times of economic downturn and that disputes over what to cut could result in Congress ceding its power of the purse to the courts. Even had it passed, the measure would have faced an uphill fight in the Democratic-controlled Senate. The House passed a similar measure in 1995, with the help of 72 Democrats. That year, the measure fell one vote short of passing the Senate. Constitutional amendments must get two-thirds majorities in both houses and be ratified by three-

fourths of the states to take effect. The last constitutional amendment ratified, in 1992, concerned lawmaker pay increases. second-ranking The Democrat, Steny Hoyer of Maryland, voted for the amendment in 1995 but said the situation has vastly changed since then. “Republicans have been fiscally reckless,” he asserted, saying the George W. Bush administration would not cut spending elsewhere to pay for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, major tax cuts and a Medicare prescription drug benefit. “A constitutional amendment is not a path to a balanced budget,” said Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas.

he, too, has received numerous breaks from the community he has called home his whole life. “When I first started in 1984, I had a lot of help and people willing to take a chance on me as I slowly built the equity in my business, and I’ll never forget that,” Denoyer said. “Troy’s been very good to us — I love it here.” Gladman said she saw Dave Service’s was giving away a free Bryant furnace on a local news station and decided to apply for the system for her father’s home on Dakota Street. “Fortunately we saw it on TV,” she said. “It was like it was meant to be.” Gladman said the furnace in her father’s home had even caught on fire

• It’s important that you have your furnace inspected to ensure that it is in good working condition. • Be sure all furnace controls and emergency shutoffs are in proper working condition. • Leave furnace repairs to qualified specialists. Do not attempt repairs yourself unless you are qualified. • Inspect the walls and ceiling near the furnace and along the chimney line. If the wall is hot or discolored, additional pipe insulation or clearance may be required. • Check the flue pipe and pipe seams. Are they well supported, free of holes, and cracks? Soot along or around seams may be an indicator of a leak. • Is the chimney solid, with cracks or loose bricks? All unused flue openings should be sealed with solid masonry. • Keep trash and other combustibles away from the heating system. once before and she new it wasn’t safe and needed to be replaced. “I knew he was going to need a furnace,” Gladman said. “It’s been making noises, so when I saw it on the news that they were taking applications, I knew I had to try.”

Gladman said she and Grigsby’s caregiver, Faye, were both worried about Grigsby’s health and safety. Gladman explained how when she told her father she was applying for the free furnace, he thought he wouldn’t have a chance. “He said, ‘Oh, nobody is

Economy • Continued from 1 way: a surge in permits for home construction; a narrower gap between shortand long-term interest rates that suggested less concern about inflation; a recovery in stock prices; and growth in the U.S. money supply. A longer average workweek and fewer applications for unemployment benefits also contributed to the rise in the index.

Robbery All told, the components of the index signaled that the economy is steadily, if still slowly, strengthening. On Thursday, the government reported further improvement in the number of people seeking unemployment benefits for the first time. The number fell to 388,000, the fewest since April. In October, the economy added a net total of 80,000 jobs. It was the 13th

straight month of gains. Still, the additional jobs were fewer than the roughly 125,000 that are needed each month just to keep up with population growth. Many economists said the October gain in the leading indicators offered further assurance that the economy is in no imminent danger of slipping back into a recession, so long as Europe doesn’t fall into a severe downturn.

As Grigsby watched from his chair as Dave’s Services installers Jim Morlan and David Boggs ripped out his old, unsafe furnace, Denoyer kneeled down to get a picture with his No. 1 customer. “It’s good to serve you,” he said as he shook Grigsby’s hand.

Board set to discuss district finances BY JENNIFER RUNYON For the Troy Daily News


During their monthly meeting Thursday night, members of the Covington Exempted Village Schools Board of Education set a date for a special meeting to discuss district finances. “I really feel that time is of the essence here,” Superintendent Dave Larson said. The meeting will be at 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 15, at the board of education office. Although he will no longer be on the board as of January, Dr. Nick Weldy will be present along with newly elected Jon Furrow, who will take Weldy’s place. Weldy was appointed to the board in September 2010 to fill the spot left vacant by Scott Peters. Weldy said he has enjoyed his time serving, but his schedule doesn’t allow him to continue. He does hope to return one day. In other news: • The resignation was accepted for Manda Plessinger. Plessinger is an aide in a special needs classroom and will serve as a substitute when her new job allows. Larson told the board that there is a possibility that the position would be replaced with a part-time position in order to save money. The needs of the district will be surveyed to determine if this is suitable. • The board passed a resolution giving Larson permission to purchase a used school bus upon recommendation of the transportation committee if priced below

$25,000. “The state of our fleet is a concern,” Larson said, adding that a used bus may have to come from outside the state as nearby districts aren’t buying buses, so they don’t have used ones to sell. • A roof inspection has been completed by the district’s insurance company at the time of a recent storm that damaged many roofs throughout the village. The inspection found $11,000 of repairs that need to be made, but said new roofs were not needed. Water damage was found in the high school and elementary school. The inspector determined that the hail damage to the roof would not have caused the water damage. • In the building spotlight, junior Jaime Crowell shared about her recent trip to Greece and Italy as one of 30 Ohio students to take part in the People to People Student Ambassador program. Crowell raised nearly $7,000 on her own to take the trip. “She’s an outstanding student that goes above and beyond the call of duty,” said Ken Miller, high school principal. • Elementary school Principal Rick Fry shared that Erin Gibson, the daughter of educational aide Amy Lavey, will be on CNN Thanksgiving evening. Gibson is a medic stationed in Afghanistan and will be discussing her recent rescue mission. The board will meet again in regular session at 6 p.m. Dec. 21 in the board of education office.

MVCTC puts levy back on ballot BY JOYELL NEVINS Ohio Community Media


The Miami Valley Career Technology Center is going back to the voters. At Wednesday’s board meeting, the board of education unanimously voted to put a 2.18mill replacement levy on the March 6 ballot. Although it passed in Miami County, the replacement levy was defeated on Nov. 8. However, the margin of victory was less than 250 votes out of more than 111,000 votes cast. Since the numbers are so close, it is an automatic recount before official results are tabulated. But MVCTC Superintendent Dr. John Boggess said the administration and board didn’t want to wait on the possibility of a decision reversal before proceeding to the next election. He noted that the amount of total yes votes, 55,475, was the most yes votes the school has ever received in an election. The levy fell short in Warren and Montgomery counties, but passed in Darke, Preble and Miami counties. “We feel this is an indication of positive

support,” he said. Boggess attributed the final levy rejection, however, to State Issue 2, the referendum on the collective bargaining law. He felt that issue brought out a lot of voters who already had a “strong negative sentiment” (the law was rejected statewide 61 to 39 percent). For the March vote, Boggess noted the voter population will be more of those who specifically support the school. “We feel there will not be as big of a (voter) turnout,” Boggess said. “We really want to focus on the positive voters.” The second and final resolution to place the levy on the ballot will be on the agenda for the Dec. 1 board meeting. MVCTC serves 27 school districts. In Miami County, that includes Bethel, Miami East, Tipp City and Milton-Union school districts. According to Boggess, the levy would cost the owner of a $100,000 home less than $1 a month in property taxes and is the only funding MVCTC has on the books from local sources.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP San Francisco Chronicle on the NBA: The National Basketball Association is losing big in the court of public opinion. The damage will be compounded if the 2011-12 season is lost, which appears to be a real possibility after the latest breakdown in negotiations. Neither the owners nor the players should look here for sympathy. Instead, they should look out their tinted windows to get a sense of how absurd their dispute seems in the context of the times. Owners: See the rising anger at the callousness of the 1 percent? That’s you. Players: See the people struggling to stay employed and keep their homes out of foreclosure? Those are the fans who dig deep for $60 tickets and $10 beers that help cover your seven-figure salaries.

Some religious observances are now allowed, which wasn’t always the case. The U.S. should continue to encourage greater freedoms for the Cuban people while our government keeps a wary eye on official Cuba because of the island nation’s history of support for international terrorism. The tense and frightening days of the Cuban missile crisis are still in this nation’s memory. As the decades have unfolded, there have been encouraging signs that there someday will be more normal relations between the U.S. and the beautiful island of Cuba, home to more than 11 million residents. The Cuban people themselves seem genuinely friendly toward Americans and there is a surprising amount of trade allowed between the two countries despite the official trade embargo. Due to the economic, housing and other problems in Cuba, Raul Castro may have had little choice but to push for reforms to bring the nation into the modern world. Whatever the reason, working toward expanded freedoms for the Cuban people and continued better relations between our two countries are goals worth pursuing.

It’s the smallest things that mean the most Well friends, it’s officially here. With Thanksgiving less than a week away, the holiday season is in full bloom (unlike the flowers, trees and leaves, which are actually dying). I’ve found it’s best to just accept the holiday cheer as it comes at you, rather than try to fight it. Embrace the corny ABC Family Christmas movies, turn up those holiday jingles and let yourself become enamored with the most magical time of the year. I’m always a whirlwind of emotions when it comes to this time of year. I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of my brother, sisterin-law nephew and niece, meanwhile speed cleaning the home so it’s ready for their appearance as well. I’m purchasing gifts that nobody asks for, because I’m that annoying family member or friend who feels that getting you something off of a list is cheating, so you usually end up with an electric blanket or a booger and germ-making kit, if you’re my nephew. But if there’s one tradition I love catering to the most (you know, behind the whole baking and eating pies, stuffing and

Amanda Stewart Troy Daily News Columnist more pie), it’s making a “thankful” list with my family. Last year we cut out turkeys (vegan ones, of course) for each family member and wrote what we were thankful for on the feathers. My husband and I sat in the kitchen coloring the feathers blue, magenta, orange and olive green (his favorite color). We taped them on the fridge so we could be reminded of all the blessings we had. This year we went the hand tree route. We traced our hands (and Pearyn’s the best we could) and cut them out in browns, yellows, oranges and reds. We wrote something simple on each hand and then taped them to the fridge, in the shape of the tree. It might seem silly to most that two adults with an 18-month-old daughter spend so much time doing silly arts and crafts projects.

— Scott Raskay Troy Trojans, 1989

But in reality, it’s what this season is all about and it’s a fun reminder when you’re having a less-than-thankful day to look on the fridge and see the simple things you’re thankful for. We like to build the tree as the month progresses, because you never know what you’ll feel blessed about one day compared to the next. We take photos of our projects each year and are excited to share them with Pearyn as she gets older. You might be wondering now what sort of things we’re thankful for in our household. This year, it’s a lot of really simple and silly things. I won’t tell you who is thankful for what, I think you’ll probably be able to guess, though. Someone in the Tonkin household is thankful for Mickey Mouse. From the 54 episodes we have DVR’d on our television to the clubhouse playset we paid double for because it sold out at the online Disney Store and Americans are greedy, we are so thankful for Mickey and his friends’ presences in our lives. Someone in the Tonkin household is grateful for Tony Romo. Despite his on-again, off-again field play, someone here still feels happy and thankful he is part of

the Dallas Cowboys line-up. Pretty sure we all know this one wasn’t me. Someone in the Tonkin household is thankful for Daiya, the vegan cheese. From its super yummy taste to the fact that it actually melts, one member of our family is incredibly appreciative of this viable cheese alternative. We’re also thankful for a healthy, inspiring and constantly amazing 18-month-old little girl. She’s hands down, the best thing we’ve done yet. Not to mention all the family, friends and guideparents in our lives. And I would be lying if I said our tree didn’t include our border collie mix, Karma, a new home with a third bedroom, a dining room table, two jobs that allow us to pay the bills and Ryan and I’s five-year anniversary coming up. (Dec. 3, folks, will mark the day we started dating, five years ago). These things might seem silly to most or maybe even superficial to some. But I’m telling you, it’s the simple things — the smallest things — that add up to the most.

The child’s death was the result of “injuries inflicted upon him by another person,” said Piqua Police Chief Bruce Jamison. The police have been careful not to release many details involving the incident. Instead Jamison said “the proper forum for disclosure of additional information is the court system and we are concentrating on presenting a case there.” The case remains under investigation.

Wagner not a suspect Investigators reopen Wood case LOS ANGELES (AP) — Investigators reopened the case of Natalie Wood’s 1981 drowning after receiving new information they deemed credible enough to warrant another look at one of Hollywood’s most enduring mysteries. A detective said Friday, however, that the three-time Oscar nominee’s husband, actor Robert Wagner, was not a suspect. Los Angeles Sheriff’s Lt. John Corina said nothing has yet changed the official view that Wood’s death in the chilly waters off Southern California’s Santa Catalina Island was anything but an accident. Corina said Friday that two detectives would delve into the case and interview

witnesses, including some who have come forward since the announcement a day earlier that the actress’ death is being reviewed again. Corina declined to say whether all the new information came from Dennis Davern, who was a captain of the yacht that Wagner, Wood and actor Christopher Walken were sharing on Thanksgiving weekend in 1981. Davern said on national television Friday that he lied to investigators about events on the yacht Splendour when he was interviewed after Wood’s death. Davern told NBC’s “Today” show on Friday that he made mistakes by not telling the truth about events leading to the death and had urged Los Angeles County sheriff’s homicide investigators to reopen the case.

Mary Jane, saw a for sale sign on the lot this summer after both the lot and building had been auctioned by the schools. With the help a local realtor, they learned the parcel had been separated and the lot could be acquired on its own. “Our thinking was it might be in our best interest if we bought it and have control it,” Saunders said. Informally called Presbyterian Park, the church has already used the 0.68 acres for a neighborhood gathering featuring a cookout and festival.

BG church buys vacant lot (AP) — If you don’t build, they also will come. In an interesting twist on the movie storyline of “Field of Dreams,” the leaders at First Presbyterian Church in Bowling Green recently purchased a vacant lot behind their church, which was part of the former central administration building property for Bowling Green City Schools. The church purchased the property for $20,000 and for the foreseeable future plan to keep it an open green space to serve the church and the community. Pastor Gary Saunders and his fellow co-pastor and wife,

Something needs to be done about education

Today: 5 p.m.: Steel Dreams 6 p.m.: Sport Pilot TV 8 p.m.: Spotlight

Dear Annie: I am very concerned about the state of education, specifically as it relates to the elimination of services. I am a high school counselor who is passionate about helping students and their families navigate through some of life's most difficult obstacles, including drug and alcohol abuse, bullying, teen pregnancy, divorce, peer-pressure, self-esteem issues and academic struggles, to name a few. Just as you often indicate in your column, sometimes school counselors are the only safe, reliable, resourceful adult with whom students can share their problems. However, in an attempt to save money, some schools are eliminating counselors, and the academic scheduling portion of our job is being delegated to clerical staff. I am not blaming anyone. I understand the dilemma, but I am heartsick at the thought that students in need of emotional support are being abandoned. I admire our teachers and believe they make every effort to play a supporting role in the healthy development of our students. But with increased class sizes, that option of intervention and support is unrealistic. It is my hope that this letter will help make our communities aware of the services available through their school counselors, as well as the need to keep these services intact. — J. Dear J.: Budget cuts in nearly every state affect the public school system in ways that communities don't always grasp until it's too late. Kids today are faced with social and academic issues that their parents never contemplated. Often, school counselors are the only thing standing between our children and utter collapse. We hope this letter helps. Dear Annie: My son and daughter-in-law live a few hours away, and I can't get them to come and visit. We get to see my two grandsons only if we drive to their house, and yet they have no problem driving twice that far to see her parents and spend the weekend with them. On the rare occasions when they come by, my daughter-in-law barely spends any time with us. When they need a babysitter, I am expected to drop everything. Don't get me wrong. I love spending time with the grandkids. But sometimes I get so frustrated at being taken advantage of that I want to say no. I have always been there for my son, but now it seems we only talk when they need something. Am I selfish to want them to visit more, or should I just be happy that we get to see them every few months when they need a babysitter? — Frustrated Grandma Dear Grandma: You aren't being selfish, but sometimes there isn't much you can do. The wives often run the social life of the family. Your daughter-in-law wants to be with her parents more than her in-laws, and your son has given up, doesn't care enough to remedy the situation or agrees with her. If you want to see your son more often, you will need to make the greater effort, and it will help if you can chummy up to his wife. Dear Annie: I read the letter from "Strong but Broken," who wanted to confront the bully she knew in high school 40 years ago. Her therapist was probably right that the bully won't remember. I found out at my 20th class reunion that the bully in my life had no recollection of making one solid year of high school a living hell for me. What a waste of my energy to hate her for 20 years. A friend told me to write down everything I'd ever wanted to say to her, read it, tear it up and bury the pieces in the backyard. I did that and then washed my hands of the dirt, as well as the entire experience. — Feel Better Now Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HOW TO PLAY: Complete the grid so that every row, column and 3x3 box contains every digit from 1 to 9 inclusively. Find answers to today’s puzzle in tomorrow’s Troy Daily News. YESTERDAY’S SOLUTION:


Show how much you really do care Dear Heloise: Thanks 1,000 times for all the great hints you have given us, including the money we have saved and the chemicals we have left out of our homes. I was just reading your article (Heloise here: about not notifying friends and families about a death), and a thought popped into my head. Write LETTERS OF YOUR PASSING in advance. Direct a trusted person to mail them after you pass on. Treat your friends and family to a nice dinner and a glass of wine at a place of their

Hints from Heloise Columnist choice. Tell them how much you love them and cherish their friendship. The acknowledgement alone could mean so much to someone you care for deeply. It can release hurt and pent-up feelings on both sides.

Keep up the truly good work, Heloise; we all love you. — Hermine in Colorado Springs, Colo. Thank you for the kind words, and your hint is a good “heart hint.” — Heloise EASY PIZZA Dear Heloise: As a busy family, one of our children’s favorite quickie meals is frozen pizza. We always bake the pizza directly on the oven rack to yield a crispy crust. While it’s baking, I open up the pizza box at the seams, flip it inside out and fold it in half. When

the pizza’s done, I use the box as you would use a pizza peel, giving it a quick, sharp slide between the pizza and the rack (folded edge first). I then cut and serve the pizza right from my cardboard “platter.” The lack of raised edges make it easy to cut, it’s just the right size to catch the crumbs, and cleanup is simple and fast, since there are no dishes to wash. — Susan M., Warren, N.J.











HOROSCOPE Saturday, Nov. 19, 2011 Overall conditions that surround you are likely to show marked improvements in the year ahead, especially where your work or career is concerned. Both a promotion and increased earnings are possibilities. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — There is justification for you to have high expectations today, so instead of subduing your feelings, do what you can to express them through both your work and play. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Handling a critical situation requires being both philosophical and realistic about things at the same time. Taking on a proper frame of mind assures victory. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Clearly defining both your aims and purposes in competitive developments will give you an edge over others. You’ll feel the need to succeed. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — If possible avoid spending time with aimless people who are going no place in the world. Pals who have both ambition and purpose will be the ones who will light a fire under you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Having both just the right amount of solitude and harmony enhances your chances for efficacy and can make this quite a productive day for you. Seek those conditions if you can find them. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Simply by being pragmatic about all things allows you to gain the upper hand when needed in any dealings you have with others today. Call the shots as you see them. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — If you are methodical and cognizant of all details, regardless of how small they are, this can be an extremely productive day for you. Everything will fall into place when you don’t miss a beat. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — A couple of situations you’ve been unable to complete to your satisfaction can be concluded today if you’re willing to start over and completely redo them. Give it a try. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Devote the greater part of your efforts to projects or situations that require mental effort rather than muscular output. You’re far more adept at using your mind than you are your muscles. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — If you’d like to engage in something social today, you’d be happier limiting your involvement to a small group of friends where each person will have a chance to express himself or herself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Simply looking out for yourself today will prove to be quite boring, so instead, utilize your time and talent to get others to socialize with you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Collective benefits can be derived from relationships with people who are willing to share what they have with one another. The more each person gives, the more everybody gets. COPYRIGHT 2011 UNITED FEATURE SYNDICATE, INC.

TODAY IN HISTORY Today is Saturday, Nov. 19, the 323rd day of 2011. There are 42 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight: On Nov. 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address as he dedicated a national cemetery at the site of the Civil War battlefield in Pennsylvania. On this date: In 1919, the Senate rejected the Treaty of Versailles by a vote of 55 in favor, 39 against, short of the two-thirds majority need-

ed for ratification. In 1942, during World War II, Russian forces launched their winter offensive against the Germans along the Don front. In 1959, Ford Motor Co. announced it was halting production of the unpopular Edsel. In 1969, Apollo 12 astronauts Charles Conrad and Alan Bean made the second manned landing on the moon. In 1977, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat became the first Arab leader to visit Israel.

In 1985, President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev met for the first time as they began their summit in Geneva. In 1990, the pop duo Milli Vanilli were stripped of their Grammy Award because other singers had lent their voices to the “Girl You Know It’s True” album. Ten years ago: The United States accused Iraq and North Korea of developing germ warfare programs.

Myanmar first ‘pariah’ to take up Obama engagement WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama finally found a taker Friday for his Inauguration speech offer to extend a hand to rogue states “if you are willing to unclench your fist.” The U.S. sees Myanmar as responding to the 3-year-old offer of engagement, a major shift for the former military-run dictatorship long under China’s protection and influence. Sealing better relations, Obama announced he would send Hillary Rodham Clinton for what would be the first visit by a U.S. secretary of state in more than 50 years. China immediately responded with a veiled warning to its smaller, weaker ally not to get too close to Washington. Obama said of Myanmar, “After years of darkness, we’ve seen flickers of progress in these last several weeks.” He announced Clinton’s trip in Bali, Indonesia, on the sidelines of a

summit of East Asian leaders, including Myanmar’s President Thein Sein. The U.S. president noted the release of political prisoners, the easing of media restrictions, a tentative opening of the political system and a dialogue between the government and pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, whose political party has agreed to register and participate in elections. For Myanmar, also known as Burma, better relations with the United States may mean muchneeded investment and market opportunities. It is also likely to boost Myanmar’s credibility with its neighbors in Southeast Asia, many of whom view China as a growing threat. Obama’s trip to Asia this week was dominated by questions about China’s changing world role, both as an economic power and an increasingly assertive military one. In Bali, Obama heard direct-

ly from participants in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations about worries over the South China Sea, where Beijing is increasingly asserting disputed territorial claims. Reform in Myanmar will not come overnight or easily, and many remain skeptical about a commitment to democratization. After decades of repression and isolation under the military regime that ruled for more than half a century, leaders there seem eager to come in from the cold. Clinton will test that proposition during her Dec. 1-2 trip to Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon, and Myanmar’s capital, Naypidaw, officials said. Myanmar has been harshly criticized and penalized by the U.S. and its allies for widespread human rights abuses, and remains a target of sanctions. U.S. officials denied suggestions that engagement with Myanmar is related to countering

Chinese influence. Yet China reacted with apparent suspicion after questioning the appropriateness of greater military cooperation between the United States and Australia earlier in the week. “We are willing to see the U.S. and other Western countries improve contacts with Myanmar and make better relations,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin said at Friday’s daily media briefing in Beijing. “At the same time, we hope that both the domestic and foreign policies of Myanmar are conducive for the peace and stability of Myanmar.” The Obama administration hopes the Clinton trip will encourage broader change by a newly elected civilian government that appears to be hedging its geopolitical bets by opening up to the West. The cautious outreach to Myanmar also makes good on Obama’s promise that he would

try to talk with adversaries or disagreeable regimes when it was in the U.S. national interest. That realpolitik approach was aimed primarily at containing potential nuclear threats from North Korea or Iran, but made little headway with either of those governments. Myanmar is in an uncertain middle passage no longer under full control of a junta but far from a free society. Although he stressed that Myanmar needs to do much more, Obama called its first moves “the most important steps toward reform in Burma that we’ve seen in years” and worthy of recognition in the form of a visit by his top diplomat. Further rewards, including upgraded diplomatic relations with the return of a U.S. ambassador Washington has been represented by a charge d’affaires since 1990 could follow as could an easing of some of wide-ranging travel and financial U.S. sanctions if further progress is made.

Egypt’s Islamists Syria OKs observers in principle confront military CAIRO (AP) — Tens of thousands of Islamists and young activists massed Friday in Tahrir Square, confronting Egypt’s ruling military council with the largest crowd in months to protest the generals’ attempt to give themselves special powers over a future elected government. While united against the army, however, conservatives and liberals were jockeying among themselves for votes in crucial parliamentary elections only 10 days away. The stakes are higher for all sides than at any time since the uprising ousted President Hosni Mubarak in February. The victors will help choose who will draft a new constitution, thus defining the character of post-revolutionary Egypt. Most of this year’s rallies in Tahrir Square since Mubarak’s ouster have

been led by liberal- or leftleaning groups, but Islamists dominated Friday’s protest. Members of the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt’s bestorganized group, carried signs and waved flags bearing the logo of its Freedom and Justice party. Elsewhere, ultraconservative Salafis in long robes and bushy beards called for application of Islamic Sharia law. For most of the day, liberal groups showed little organized presence. The mobilization by the Brotherhood, which had until recently avoided confrontation with the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, reflects a shift in the group’s position. It has threatened to escalate its protest campaign if plans to give permanent political powers to the military are not scrapped.

BEIRUT (AP) — Syria agreed in principle Friday to allow dozens of Arab observers into the country to oversee a peace plan, a significant concession from a hardline regime that loathes any sort of outside interference. But critics said the regime is only stalling, trying to defuse international pressure while continuing its bloody crackdown on an 8-month-old uprising which the U.N. estimates has killed more than 3,500 people. The acceptance came after surprisingly heavy pressure from the Arab League, which brokered the peace plan and this week suspended Syria from the 22-member organization for failing to abide by it. On Wednesday, the league gave Damascus three days to accept an observer mission or face economic sanctions. Further international

pressure was mounting on Syrian President Bashar Assad. Britain appointed a senior diplomat to be its pointman in dealing with Syria’s opposition over the crisis, and French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe called on the U.N. Security Council to strengthen sanctions against Assad’s regime. However, Russia, which holds veto power in the council, urged caution in moving against Damascus. Violence has escalated in Syria the past week, as army dissidents who sided with the protests have grown more bold, fighting back against regime forces and even assaulting military bases. Activist groups said security forces on Friday killed at least 16 anti-government protesters in what has become a weekly ritual on Fridays, the main day for protests in Syria as thousands of people stream out of

mosques following afternoon prayers. The Arab League observer mission aims to prevent violence and monitor a cease-fire that Damascus agreed to last week in the league peace plan but has been unwilling or unable to implement. In Washington, State Department spokesman Mark Toner said the U.S. has seen no signs that Syria’s government will honor the Arab League proposal. “They’ve lost all credibility and that’s why we believe Assad needs to step down and allow for a democratic transition to take place,” he told reporters. Deep questions remain over how effective Damascus will allow the mission to be. A senior Syrian official said Friday that the government had agreed to the observer mission in princi-

ple but was “still studying the details.” The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the issue is so sensitive. Nabil Elaraby, the head of the Arab League, said in a statement Friday that he received “amendments” to the mission from Damascus, which the League is studying. He gave no details on the changes Syria seeks. The original league proposal had been for a 500member observer mission but the number has dropped to 40, said Ibrahim el-Zaafarani, an Egyptian member of the Arab Medical Union who is expected to be part of the team for Syria. He said he was not clear on why or on whose behest the number was reduced. “Our presence there will be protection for civilians,” el-Zaafarani, in Cairo, told The Associated Press.

She’ll also run 10 Sprint Cup Series races for StewartHaas Racing.

Kimball gets sponsor By The Associated Press

Grubb’s Future In Limbo Tony Stewart’s crew chief would not speculate Tuesday on his future with the race team. Darian Grubb has led Stewart to four wins in the last nine races, and the Stewart-Haas Racing team goes into Sunday’s season finale trailing Carl Edwards by three points in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. But there’s been speculation for months about personnel within the race team as Stewart fired his competition director midway through the season. Grubb has been rumored to be both on the way out and a candidate for the competition director job. Grubb, who left Hendrick Motorsports at the end of 2008 to join SHR as Stewart’s crew chief, was non-committal when asked if he’ll be back.



Tony Stewart, left, and Carl Edwards shake hands by the championship trophy during a news conference in Miami Beach, Fla., on Thursday, Nov. 17, 2011, before Sunday's Ford 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series auto race. The race to the Sprint Cup title has so far been friendly between Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart. It remains to be seen how relaxed the drivers stay headed into Sunday's season finale.

Fightin’ words Stewart tries to rattle Edwards before finale MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — It’s very difficult to win a war of words with Tony Stewart, who uses quick wit and a sharp tongue to defeat anyone bold enough to go toe-to-toe with him. It’s clearly been his strategy the last month with Carl Edwards, the Sprint Cup Series points leader and lone driver standing in Stewart’s way of a third NASCAR championship. Whether it works or not won’t be determined until Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, where Edwards will take a three-point lead over Stewart into the season finale. Edwards did his best to hang with Stewart on Thursday in their final joint news conference before the race. As the two heaped compliment after compliment on each other, they were finally asked if they’d be so polite on the last lap with the championship on the line. “I’d wreck my mom to win a championship,” Stewart said. “I respect him as a driver, but this isn’t about friendships this weekend. This is a war. This is a battle. This is for a national championship. It’s no holds barred this weekend. I didn’t come this far to be one step away from it and let it slip away, so we’re going to go for it.” Edwards was unfazed and gamely tried to go after Stewart. “Did you say something” he asked. “Yeah, you can come visit my trophy in the room at (Las) Vegas,”

Stewart replied. “He’s got the talking part figured out. Problem is, you haven’t led the points yet this year, have you?” said Edwards, who has led the points for 21 weeks this year. “They say there’s talkers and doers. I’ve done this twice,” Stewart replied in reference to his two championships. “That’s the funny thing. I’ve listened to you talk a lot today. You’ve talked a lot about your past successes. That is very respectable,” Edwards said. And with that, he bowed out of the witty banter and got serious. Edwards has been the most consistent driver this season, and that steadiness is all he needs to believe he’s the man to beat in this title race. But it’s Edwards’ first legitimate shot at a Sprint Cup title his 2007 title in the second-tier Nationwide Series was a runaway and he’s bound to get nervous at some point, right? Edwards insists he won’t be rattled and has studied Stewart the past several weeks to get a better understanding of what he’s up against. “There’s a couple reasons that I’m not nervous about this, and they’re personal reasons, they’re reasons that maybe someday I’ll talk to you more about in depth,” he said. “I’m truly just excited about this. And it is interesting to me. I’ve learned a lot about Tony, the way he competes by what he’s said. I’ve paid attention to

what he says. I pay attention to the way he looks when he gets out of the race car, the body language he uses, things like that. I’ve learned a lot.” But Stewart doesn’t believe anything Edwards is saying, and said he’s made his own observations and knows his rival is feeling the heat. “I’ve seen what he looks like, what his guys look like. I’ve seen how our guys look. I know how I feel about it. It’s two totally different demeanors in the garage right now,” Stewart said. “All you have to do is walk around the garage and you can make that decision for yourself. “I think he’s doing a pretty good acting job. I think he’s a lot more nervous than he lets on. But he’s got a lot of class and character and is a strong person. But I don’t think he’s as strong as he wants to lead everyone to believe.” Stewart, seeking to become the first driver/owner since Alan Kulwicki in 1992 to win the championship, came to Florida immediately after Sunday’s race at Phoenix for a string of sponsor appearances. He was unshaven and tan at Thursday’s news conference, where he smiled and laughed through the 20-plus minutes of questioning. Edwards, who had a quiet week at home in Missouri with his family, wasn’t as loose. He smiled, he made some jokes, but he seemed to grow agitated as Stewart’s verbal jabs continued.

Chip Ganassi Racing announced a multiyear sponsorship deal Tuesday with Novo Nordisk for IndyCar driver Charlie Kimball. The deal with Novo Nordisk, a world leader in diabetes care, is a multiyear agreement for Kimball, the first licensed driver with Type 1 diabetes in the Izod IndyCar Series. Kimball was diagnosed with diabetes in 2007 and must monitor his blood sugar before, during and after races. “It speaks volumes that a company like Novo Nordisk is making this type of longterm commitment to our team, to Charlie, and the IndyCar Series,” said Ganassi. “The IndyCar Series could use more partners like them.” The series has been reeling since Dan Wheldon, a two-time Indianapolis 500 winner, was killed in the Oct. 16 season finale at Las Vegas. The investigation into the 15-car accident that caused his death is ongoing, but teams have been moving forward and putting together new business deals in the month since the event. Among the new deals: Ed Carpenter announced he’ll field his own team next season with a three-year sponsorship commitment from Fuzzy’s Ultra Premium Vodka. Rahal Letterman Lanigan signed a deal with Honda and said it will attempt to run a full season in 2012. Team Penske resigned Ryan Briscoe, Helio Castroneves and Will Power. KV Racing Technology signed with Chevrolet. IndyCar last week announced a September race in China. Terry Angstadt, President of IndyCar’s commercial division, said the month since Wheldon’s accident has been challenging, but sponsor support has been strong and the series is still able to show its value. Angstadt cited a “curiosity factor” with the 2012 IndyCar that has piqued the interest of potential partners. Wheldon was the development driver for the car, which is scheduled to debut in next year’s season opener.

NASCAR chairman France defends Keselowski fine HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) — NASCAR chairman Brian France defended the policy of fining drivers who make critical comments about the series, and said Friday he saw no benefit in making those penalties public. The Associated Press on Thursday reported Brad Keselowski was fined $25,000 for critical comments made last week about NASCAR’s move to fuel injection next season. It marks at least four times in two years drivers have

been fined for comments and NASCAR has not announced them. This latest incident has overshadowed NASCAR’s championship weekend, which was being celebrated for the tremendous title fight between Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart before word of Keselowski’s fine spread. “When you cross a line that denigrates the direction of the sport or the quality of the racing, we’re not going to accept that. Not going to accept it,” France

said. “Happy to have any other criticism, any other complaint, happy to hear them all. If I own a restaurant and I say you know what, the food in my restaurant is not very good, we’re not going to accept it. It’s as simple as that.” But he didn’t offer a clear reason why NASCAR doesn’t announce the fines. “What would be the benefit? The drivers know exactly what we’re after,” he said. “They know exactly what we expect out of them and when they don’t handle

that, the only way we can control that is, obviously, a fining system.” The NBA and NFL both fine coaches and players for critical comments about the league and officiating, but NASCAR for a long time had no such policy. That’s changed in recent years as NASCAR toughened up when drivers made comments that could potentially damage the brand. Denny Hamlin was fined last year for questioning on Twitter the legitima-

cy of debris cautions, and Ryan Newman has drawn two fines one for complaining about racing at Talladega, another for an incident with Juan Pablo Montoya inside the NASCAR hauler at Darlington this year. NASCAR did not publicize any of them, but the AP learned of all four. Asked Friday if there were others, France didn’t answer. “There could be. That’s why they’re private, right?” he asked.

Paterno has treatable lung cancer STATE COLLEGE, Pennsylvania (AP) — Former Penn State coach Joe Paterno, who lost his job last week in the wake of a child sex abuse scandal, has a treatable form of lung cancer, according to his son. Scott Paterno said in a statement provided to The Associated Press by a family representative on Friday that the 84-year-old Joe Paterno is undergoing treatment and that “his doctors are optimistic he will make a full recovery.”

“As everyone can appreciate, this is a deeply personal matter for my parents, and we simply ask that his privacy be respected as PATERNO he proceeds with treatment,” Scott Paterno said in a brief statement.

The announcement came less than an hour after Penn State said the NCAA would examine how school officials handled a scandal that shocked the campus and cost Paterno a job he held 46 years. Scott Paterno said the diagnosis was made during a follow-up visit last weekend for a bronchial illness. Earlier Friday, The Citizens Voice of Wilkes-Barre reported that Paterno had been seen Wednesday visiting the Mount

History on their side Coaches killed in plane crash Kurt Budke turned Oklahoma State’s women’s basketball team into a winner and hoped he’d found the place where he’d coach until he retired. Miranda Serna had passed up opportunities to leave his side, staying loyal to the man whom she had helped to win a junior college national championship and then rebuild a big-time college program. Having succeeded together, Budke and Serna died together perishing in a plane crash on a trip aimed at building their team’s future. See Page 16.

Buckeyes prepare to host Nittany Lions COLUMBUS (AP) — Penn State interim coach Tom Bradley remains hopeful heading into Saturday’s game at Ohio State, even though history clearly isn’t on the Nittany Lions’ side. They’ve only won twice in their last 10 trips to the Horseshoe. “The ‘Shoe hasn’t been a great place for us,” Bradley said. “We haven’t played our best games out there. But, you know, every year is different. It’s a new team. I don’t worry about the past. I’m only worried about the present right now.” The present has required more than enough attention.

Less than two weeks into a scandal involving former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, arrested for allegedly molesting boys, and just 10 days away from the firing of coach Joe Paterno for not doing enough to stop the alleged abuse, the emotions and motivation for the Nittany Lions remain a major concern. But in purely football terms, they have a lot to play for. No. 21 Penn State (8-2, 5-1) needs one more win to clinch at least a share of the Big Ten’s Leaders Division title. A victory against the Buckeyes and another the following week at Wisconsin, and the Nittany

Lions will play in the Big Ten championship game. Despite the tumult still affecting the university and the team every day and the many, many questions that remain unanswered Bradley says his players still realize what they can accomplish out on the field. “We started the meeting with it yesterday: We still control our own destiny, and we can still win this thing,” Bradley said. “And I told them what’s at stake. And they understand that. They’re well aware.” There is one bit of trivia from the past that favors Penn State.

Hargis: ‘Our worst nightmare’ Oklahoma State’s Budke, Serna killed in plane crash


Oklahoma State had coach Kurt Budke, right, sits on the bench next to assistant coach Miranda Serna, left, during an exhibition game Nov. 9 against Fort Hays State in Stillwater, Okla. Budke and Serna were killed in a plane crash Thursday in Arkansas.

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Kurt Budke turned Oklahoma State’s women’s basketball team into a winner and hoped he’d found the place where he’d coach until he retired. Miranda Serna had passed up opportunities to leave his side, staying loyal to the man whom she had helped to win a junior college national championship and then rebuild a big-time college program. Having succeeded together, Budke and Serna died together perishing in a plane crash on a trip aimed at building their team’s future. Budke, the head coach, and Serna, his assistant, were killed Thursday when the single-engine plane transporting them on a recruiting trip crashed in steep terrain in Arkansas, the university said Friday.

The pilot, 82-year-old former Oklahoma state Sen. Olin Branstetter, and his 79-year-old wife, Paula, also died when the plane sputtered, spiraled out of control and nosedived into the Winona Wildlife Management Area near Perryville, about 45 miles west of Little Rock. There were no survivors. “This is our worst nightmare. The entire OSU family is very close, very close indeed,” OSU President Burns Hargis said at a news conference. “To lose anyone, especially these two individuals who are incredible life forces in our family, it is worse beyond words.” The crash was the second major tragedy for the sports program in about a decade. In January 2001, 10 men affiliated with the university’s men’s basketball team died in a Colorado

plane crash. “When something like this happens and, God forbid it happened again, we have to pull together as a family. We’ve got to try to do that,” Hargis said, as he broke down in tears. After the 2001 crash, the university required that planes used by the school’s sports team undergo safety checks before travel. Hargis said coaches were not bound by the same rules and that the school left such decisions to their discretion. Hargis called Budke “an exemplary leader and man of character,” and credited him with elevating the team in a tough program. Serna, he said, was “an up-andcoming coach and an outstanding role model” for the players. Former Assistant Coach Jim Littell will serve as interim head coach. The team’s games scheduled for

Saturday and Sunday were canceled The school’s women’s soccer team, which has lost only once all season, went forward with its NCAA tournament game Friday. The tragedy was addressed in a team meeting beforehand, and several players stopped by to sign a banner set up in the Gallagher-Iba Arena lobby in remembrance. “It’s pretty hard just because it’s happened once before. OSU came together then and we can come together now,” defender Carson Michalowski said. Perry County Sheriff Scott Montgomery said hunters called emergency officials about 4 p.m. Thursday after they heard the plane apparently in trouble, then saw it nosedive into a heavily wooded area.

No. 13 Xavier survives Holloway’s off night doesn’t hurt Musketeers in win CINCINNATI (AP) — Tu Holloway couldn’t make a shot. No. 13 Xavier made sure the point guard’s rare off night didn’t have a ripple effect. Mark Lyons scored 11 of his 18 points in the first half Friday and Xavier held on for a 66-60 victory over Miami of Ohio that fit the rivalry’s pattern of close games that come down to the closing minutes. Xavier (3-0) got just enough from Holloway to break open a back-andforth game. The senior guard didn’t get his first basket until 11:02 remained, a driving bank shot that put Xavier ahead to stay 46-44. Holloway didn’t feel well in practice leading up to the game, forcing him to rest at times. He finished with nine points on 3-of-12 shooting. Kenny Frease added 13 points and seven rebounds for Xavier. No. 6 Duke 82, Davidson 69 DURHAM, N.C. — Mason Plumlee had 16 points and 13 rebounds to help No. 6 Duke beat pesky Davidson 82-69 on Friday night. He and brother Miles combined to score 10 straight points during a decisive 25-4 run midway through the second half for the Blue Devils (4-0). Austin Rivers and Seth Curry both finished with 17 points for Duke, which was playing for the first time since Mike Krzyzewski became the winningest men’s coach in Division I history. The Blue Devils delivered Coach K’s 904th career victory by holding Davidson without a field goal for 7 minutes during their game-breaking run. Mississippi St. 67, No. 15 Arizona 57 NEW YORK — Arnett Moultrie had 19 points and 10 rebounds and Mississippi State closed the game on a 10-2 run for a 67-57 victory over No. 15 Arizona on Friday night to win the 2K Sports Classic benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Lost in all the hoopla over Tim Tebow and his recent success is the performance of Denver’s dominant defense over the last month. The Broncos have been able to keep it close so that their unconventional quarterback can orchestrate all those comebacks. Led by relentless rookie pass rusher Von Miller, the Broncos (5-5) stymied Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets in a 17-13 win Thursday to climb to within a half-game of the Oakland Raiders in the middling AFC West race. The defense sacked Sanchez three times, held the Jets to 83 yards rushing and even provided some scoring help to a stagnant Bronco offense when cornerback Andre’ Goodman picked off a Sanchez pass and darted 26 yards into the end zone. Miller recorded a team-high 10 tackles, including nine solo and three for a loss. In addition to his 1 sacks, he forced a fumble near his goal line. He and Elvis Dumervil are the first teammates in 11 years to split sacks in three con-

secutive games. But all that was largely overshadowed by Tebow’s late-game heroics as he led the Broncos on a 95-yard drive that culminated with his 20-yard TD run in the final minute. That was the signature moment as Tebow improved to 4-1 since taking over for Kyle Orton. Just keep it close for Tebow — that’s become the defense’s mantra. “It’s a good feeling, because I know if we’re close, we’ve got a chance,” Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey said. “He’s going to keep grinding.” Not that long ago, the Bronco defense was as maligned as Tebow’s mechanics. And now, the squad is steadily starting to gain a measure of respect just like Tebow. They’re hardly paying attention. “People are going to say what they’re going to say. They’re going to doubt our quarterback, doubt our defense, doubt everybody,” Bailey said. “It doesn’t matter. Whether they pat us on the back or kick us, it doesn’t matter.” These days, the team is receiving far more pats than put-downs.

Rescued Nats catcher Ramos ‘in terrific shape’ WASHINGTON (AP) — As Wilson Ramos walked through the home clubhouse at Nationals Park on Friday, a week after being freed from his abductors in Venezuela, he was greeted by Washington third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, who pulled in his teammate by the scruff of the neck for a warm embrace. “Good to have him back!” Zimmerman yelled to any-

one listening. Ramos, a 24-year-old catcher who finished fourth in NL Rookie of the Year voting, made a quick trip to Washington to be checked by team doctors who pronounced him to be “in terrific shape,” Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said and appear at a brief news conference before heading back home to Venezuela on Friday night.

“This, we think, puts an exclamation point and a finality to the incident. We’re not going to dwell on that. We’re not going to talk about that anymore from this day forward,” Rizzo said. “It was a harrowing experience, and we’re glad it’s in our past.” Ramos got to Washington on Thursday night, was given physical and psychological testing Friday morn-

ing, and now plans to play for his winter league team in Venezuela as soon as Tuesday, Rizzo said. “It’s good to see him faceto-face and see the smile and grab hold of him and see that he’s in good shape hear that he’s in good shape from the doctors and see physically that he’s in good shape,” Rizzo said. “He’s in a good mind set: happy, smiling and relieved, probably.”

Ramos made only brief statements in Spanish and English at Friday’s news conference. He did not take questions. “I just want to say thanks to our fans, for your prayers and your support,” Ramos said. “I’m happy to be here. I’m happy to be with my family. See you in spring training.” He was seized at gunpoint outside his family’s

home in the city of Valencia on Nov. 9. About 50 hours later, he was rescued in the mountains of Carabobo state. Venezuelan authorities have charged at least eight suspects in connection with the kidnapping. Ramos spoke in some detail about his ordeal last weekend in Venezuela, telling reporters there that he had wondered whether he would survive.

Americans build 11-6 advantage M E L B O U R N E , Australia (AP) — Two perfect teams and a point for Tiger Woods. That was all the Americans needed Saturday in the rain at Royal Melbourne to build a 11-6 lead in the Presidents Cup and put the International team in danger of falling too far behind to win on home soil. The Americans went 4-1 in the foursomes session, with five fourballs matches scheduled for the afternoon. Phil Mickelson and Jim Furyk won four out of five holes on the back nine, and Mickelson polished off Aaron Baddeley and Jason Day by holing a 50-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole. Mickelson and Furyk won all three matches they played together. Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson, in the leadoff match all

week, also went to 3-0 by beating Melbourne’s own Geoff Ogilvy and Robert Allenby. Woods played again with Dustin Johnson, and while it wasn’t pretty, it was finally a point. They trailed early in the match until winning consecutive holes with pars as Adam Scott and K.J. Choi struggled. Woods and Johnson went 1 up on the 13th when the International team conceded before reaching the green, and the Americans went 2 up on the next hole after Scott and Choi made another bogey. Woods closed out the match with a 20-foot birdie putt on the 16th. The International team picked up its only point behind Ernie Els and Ryo Ishikawa. They went 1 up on the 16th when Bill Haas missed a par putt on the

16th. Matt Kuchar hit his approach on the 17th within a foot for a conceded birdie, but Ishikawa halved the hole with an 18-foot birdie putt. Ishikawa holed a 6-foot par putt on the last to secure the 1-up win. David Toms and Hunter Mahan again proved to be the most formidable alternate-shot tandem. They beat Retief Goosen and Charl Schwartzel, 5 and 4. In the two foursomes matches they played, Toms and Mahan played only 27 holes and were behind on only one of those holes. TITLEHOLDERS ORLANDO, Fla. — Na Yeon Choi shot a 1-under 71 in swirling wind Friday to take a one-stroke lead over Sandra Gal after the first round of the LPGA Tour’s season-ending Titleholders.

Buckeyes Bradley was elevated from defensive coordinator last week to take the place of Paterno, winner of a Division I-record 409 victories since taking over the Nittany Lions in 1966. The longtime assistant was on the sidelines for the Nittany Lions’ emotional 17-14 home loss to Nebraska last week. “Those are two people that won’t be here, and there are probably 70 on their side and 106 players on our side,” Fickell said. “So we probably focus on the things we have and not the things we’ve lost.” Much like a week ago, when Nebraska and Penn State players met for a prayer at midfield before the game, this game will begin with the teams exchanging handshakes as a sign of sportsmanship and mutual respect. Ohio State center Mike Brewster said he feels a kinship with the Nittany Lions, who are on the road for the first time since the scandal broke.

Paterno ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 assault in 2002. Paterno initially announced his retirement effective at the end of the season. But university trustees fired him about 12 hours later, on the evening of Nov. 9. The lurid scandal has tarnished the reputation of a coach and a football program that once prided itself on the slogan “Success with Honor.” The Hall of Famer’s 409 career victories are a Division I record. In all, Paterno guided five teams to unbeaten, untied seasons, and won two national championships. Sandusky was once expected to succeed Paterno but retired in 1999 not long after being told he wouldn’t get the job.

Two university officials stepped down after they were charged with lying to a grand jury and failing to report the 2002 charge to police, an assault which allegedly took place in a shower in the football building. The grand jury report said the attack was witnessed by Mike McQueary, a graduate assistant at the time. Now the receivers coach but on administrative leave, McQueary told the grand jury he went to his father first and then to Paterno, who in turn told a university superior but didn’t go to the police. When the state’s top cop said Paterno failed to execute his moral responsibility by not contacting police, public outrage built and the trustees acted.

Fine ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 allegations made by two stepbrothers to ESPN. “Let me be clear. We know that many question whether or not a university in today’s world can shine a harsh light on its athletics programs,” Cantor said in an email to students, faculty and staff. “We are aware that many wonder if university administrations are willing to turn a blind eye to wrongdoing that may disrupt a successful sports program. I can assure you I am not, and my fellow administrators are not. We hold everyone in our community to high standards and we don’t tolerate illegal, abusive or unethical behavior — no matter who you are.” She concluded: “At this time, all we really know is that a terrible tragedy is unfolding for both the

accuser and the accused. I want you to know that we will do everything in our power to find the truth, and — if and when we do find it — to let you know what we have found.” Both of Fine’s accusers are now adults. Bobby Davis, now 39, told ESPN that Fine molested him beginning in 1984 and that the sexual contact continued until he was around 27. A ball boy for six years, Davis told ESPN that the abuse occurred at Fine’s home, at Syracuse basketball facilities and on team road trips, including the 1987 Final Four, when the Orange lost to Indiana in the national championship game. Davis’ stepbrother, Mike Lang, 45, who also was a ball boy, told ESPN that Fine molested him starting while he was in fifth or sixth grade.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 In each of those two victories in Columbus in 1978 and 2008 they beat a Buckeyes team led by a freshman quarterback. Note: True freshman Braxton Miller leads an Ohio State (6-4, 3-3) squad that has had a wildly erratic season. He’ll be trying to do something beat the Nittany Lions that Buckeyes rookies Art Schlichter and Terrelle Pryor were unable to do. What many fans will notice first about the matchup are the two largerthan-life personalities who are not present. Jim Tressel, Ohio State’s coach for the past decade, was forced out on May 30 for his role in covering up what he knew about players accepting cash and free tattoos from a man being investigated in a federal drugtrafficking probe. Ohio State is still awaiting final sanctions from the NCAA. Tressel was replaced by Luke Fickell, one of his defensive coordinators.

under 137 total at Grand Cypress. The South Korean player also topped the leaderboard Thursday after an opening 66. Choi opened with a fourputt double bogey on the first hole and was 2 over through 6 holes. She rallied with three birdies in a fourhole stretch. CHAMPIONS TOUR SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Jeff Freeman won the Champions Tour National Qualifying Tournament on Friday, shooting his fourth straight 5-under 66 for a four-stroke victory on TPC Scottsdale’s Champions Course Freeman, a 49-year-old club professional at the Country Club of Orlando and the 1999 PGA Professional Player of the Year, birdied Nos. 4-8 and shot a 6-under 29 on the front nine.
