Blaze declared as an arson Fire inspectors have officially declared a Nov. 8 blaze that devastated a home located at 707 McKinley Ave. an arson fire, according to the Piqua Fire Department. Fire investigators posted signage at the property this week identifying the fire as an arson and have set a reward of $5,000 for any person who furnishes information leading to the identification of those responsible for the fire.

Detectors helped prevent fatalities An unattended pan of grease caused a fully-involved house fire early Tuesday morning in the 300 block of Manning Street. Working smoke detectors are being credited with preventing fatalities, the city’s fire inspector said.

Jackson doctor called suicidal A judge’s stern voice broke the silence of a Los Angeles courtroom: “Money for madness medicine,” he said before sentencing Dr. Conrad Murray to the maximum four years behind bars for Michael Jackson’s death. “Absolutely no sense of fault, and is and remains dangerous” to the community, Judge Michael Pastor said as he delivered a nearly half-hour tongue lashing that denounced Murray as a greedy, remorseless physician whose gross negligence killed the King of Pop.

Human trafficking is a form of modern day slavery and the numbers are staggering: this year, an estimated 12 million people worldwide will be enslaved in some form or another, according to the Polaris Project, a national human trafficking resource center. Human trafficking, defined as using force or coercion to recruit, transport, harbor or receive a person in order to exploit them, cuts across gender, racial and national



boundaries and is recognized as a crime by the Federal Bureau of Investigation that affects as many as 60,000 people a year in the U.S.

Brett Bogan of Troy said he first became aware of the problem last year, and was shocked. “Up until last year, I knew nothing about human trafficking. I didn’t realize slavery still existed,” said Bogan, a LexisNexis employee, member of Troy First United Methodist Church and organizer of Team G(race), a group of local runners. Bogan and fellow runner Cynde Sroufe also organize the annual World Race for Hope 5K run on New Year’s Day, and have been using the race to both encourage healthy living and as an annu-

NEW YORK (AP) — Americans are beginning to feel more confident about the U.S. economy just as the all-important Christmas shopping season begins. But their optimism may be short-lived. Consumer confidence surged in November to its highest level since July, a sign that Americans may be more willing to spend, the Conference Board reported Tuesday. “Consumers appear to be entering the holiday season in better spirits,” Lynn Franco, director of the Conference Board Consumer Research Center, said in a statement. But confidence is still painfully below what is typically seen during a healthy economy. And Americans could start to feel more skittish if the debt crisis in Europe deepens and stokes fears of another recession in the U.S. “I think this will be a good holiday shopping season,” said Mark Vitner, senior U.S. economist at Wells Fargo. “But the question is what will happen after that?” The Conference Board, a private research firm, its Consumer She was very said Confidence Index climbed points in November to well liked, very 15 56.0.

East students mourn classmate BY MELANIE YINGST Staff Writer


In coping with the loss of sophomore Christen Hensley, Miami East High School students are doing what they do best — pulling together. Hensley, 15, who passed away in an automobile accident Sunday night, was new to the district and was quickly accepted and active in the FFA and Pride in M.E. clubs. “There’s been a lot of hugging and crying,” said Marie Carity, agriculture teacher and FFA adviser, who had Hensley in class. “They are learning how to mourn.” Carity said Hensley was a positive

student in class and active with the FFA organization. “She went with us to the national FFA convention in Indianapolis,” she said. “She was very well liked, very positive, always smiling — she’s HENSLEY going to be missed.” Carity said not only is the Miami East community mourning the loss of Hensley, but also the HardinHouston school district, where

TIPP CITY emergency tax mills levies of a combined amount of 9.61 mills for another five years. The levies generate $3,690,000 each year for operating funds. The board will meet at 6 p.m. Dec. 5 to discuss the district’s financial future. Gary Pfister, the district’s director of services, reported the district’s current plan to save money in every situation. For example, setting back the districts buildings’ temperatures to 68 degrees

in the winter and 74 in the summer saved $28,000 in heating and cooling costs. Pfister also reported to the board that 125 computers have been replaced throughout the district, but 175 computers are at least 7-years old. “We don’t have the funds to replace everything at once,” Pfister said. Yet, Pfister said with the district’s wireless Internet recently installed, the technology team at Tipp City School is looking into developing a “Bring Your Own Device” program at the high

school. “A lot of kids already have the devices,” Pfister said, naming IPads, I-touches and tablets capable of utilizing the Wi-Fi connections. “The wireless we put in place last year is allowing us to add these new tools to the schools.” Pfister said the district is continuing to monitor energy usage and currently the district’s electric bill is $33,000 less for July through November compared to last year’s usage. “I’m very excited about that,” Pfister said.

Foundation through its Project Futures global initiative. He said each race participant who registers will have his or her own fundraising page on the World Race for Hope website, The idea, said Bogan, is to make it easy for race participants to participate in fundraising while helping raise awareness of the problem of human trafficking. “I’ve made it my personal mission to increase awareness of (human trafficking),” Bogan said in an interview just prior to the Thanksgiving holiday. “Cynde and I want to try to do more than just stage a race. We want to engage supporters and get them to be passionate about this and raise money for the cause. “It doesn’t matter how much we raise, as long as we raise understanding of what it’s for,” Bogan added. To further spread the message, Bogan is utilizing his work and per-

sonal relationships around the country to schedule other New Year’s Day fundraising races in Columbus, New York City, Boca Raton, Fla., Saint Louis and possibly Atlanta. Also, Bogan said organizers may stage a race later in 2012, in San Antonio, Texas. “We want to see how far this goes,” he said of his efforts. NEW RACE START POINT The 5th annual World Race for Hope 5K run on New Year’s Day has a new start point this year. In the past the race has begun at First Place Christian Center on West Franklin Street and followed a route across the river and along the northside levee path and back. But with the Adams Street Bridge out, Bogan said the race this year will begin at the Troy Senior Citizens Center, located at 134 N. Market St. He said the center board recently approved the center as a starting point, which will allow participants to use the center as a staging point for the race and as a place to warm

Pfister also said 14 out of 24 buses are more than 10 years old, including buses which were purchased in 1990 and 1991. “At this time we are doing more restoration than preventative maintenance due to the age of the fleet,” Pfister said, adding the district was fortunate to have a mechanic inhouse, but the aging fleet will continue to have repairs mounting.

• CONTINUED FROM A1 Tim Williams said all three guidance counselors in district were on hand to talk with students on Monday, as well as several local pastors from the community to deal with the grieving students. “Everybody was quick to jump in and help,” Williams said. “The kids are dealing with it — both individually and in groups.” Williams said the kids have been “pretty resilient when you give them a chance to mourn.” “It’s just a horrible tragedy,” Williams

said. Miami East High School guidance counselor Matt Rutledge said, “Our kids were amazing yesterday.” “People really stick together and it’s a close-knit community,” he said. “It’s never easy obviously, but basically we just let the kids know we are here — everybody’s hurting.” Despite the circumstances, Rutledge said, the students have been dealing with the loss of Hensley with grace and sophistication. “I’m just really amazed how well our kids are dealing with it and how well they are doing,” Rutledge said.

Confidence • CONTINUED FROM A1 Americans spent $52.4 billion over the four-day Thanksgiving Day weekend, the highest total ever recorded during the traditional start to the holiday shopping season, according to the National Retail Federation. The average shopper spent a record $398.62, up from $365.34 a year ago, the NRF said. And sales on Cyber Monday, the first online shopping day after the Thanksgiving weekend, rose 22 percent from a year ago to $1.25 billion, the biggest online sales day in history, the research firm comScore Inc. reported. Retailers count on the holiday shopping season for as much as 40 percent of their annual sales. According to the consumer index, Americans’ anxiety regarding short-term business conditions, jobs and income prospects eased considerably after six months of declines. Americans expecting more jobs in the months ahead rose to 12.9 percent from 10.8 percent, for instance, while those expecting fewer jobs declined to 24.1 percent from 27.6 percent the previous

month. And the proportion of consumers anticipating an increase in their income climbed to 14.9 percent from 11.1 percent. Consumers have some reason to be more optimistic. Earlier this month, the Labor Department reported that unemployment nudged down to 9 percent in October from 9.1 percent in September. And the nation added 80,000 jobs in October for the 13th straight month of gains. Still, other economic prospects are not as good. Home prices are falling again in most major U.S. cities after posting small gains over the summer and spring, according to a report issued Tuesday. And prices for food, travel and other things have risen steadily this year, according to government data. They went up 3.5 percent in October from the same month a year ago. Adding to that, the European debt crisis threatens to undermine the U.S. economy. “People are pulling out all the stops to spend this holiday,” said Vitner, the Wells Fargo economist. “But it’s going to be hard to sustain that.”

PERSPECTIVE Tom Dunn Troy Daily News Guest Columnist

To voucher or not to voucher? That is the question In the never-ending political debate about how to improve the quality of education our young people are receiving, the issue of school vouchers has taken center stage in Columbus. As a result of this debate and because Governor Kasich is a fervent supporter of school choice, members of both the Ohio House and Senate have proposed bills that would expand the use of educational vouchers in Ohio. The theory behind these bills is that all students should be allowed to attend any school they desire, public or private, at taxpayer expense. This, supporters contend, will assure that all young people will have access to an exemplary education. This assumes, of course, that every child would be accepted into the school of his or her choice, which is not likely to happen, but, putting that fact aside, it’s pretty hard to argue against the notion that all children deserve the opportunity to receive a high quality education. However, it’s not hard to argue against the debate that is currently occurring, because proponents of an expanded voucher program are using “voodoo” data to support their position. In a recent public hearing on vouchers, School Choice Ohio and The Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice gave policymakers what they consider to be the best blueprint for improving student achievement here in Ohio. They are suggesting that we just follow Florida’s model, because students there are improving academically at a higher rate than are students in the rest of the country. Furthermore, they believe that the reason for this higher than normal rate of improvement can be traced directly to educational reform instituted in 1999 under Governor Jeb Bush, an important component of which is an aggressive voucher program. And, how do they know that Florida’s students are outperforming those in other states? Why, by using test data, of course. After all, haven’t we been convinced that all we have to do is give kids another test to “prove” the effectiveness of one’s schools? In this case, the test used was the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) exam. There’s just one slight problem with School Choice Ohio’s argument. If you visit the NAEP’s own website about interpreting its test data, you will find a cautionary statement, which reads, “Users of this website are cautioned against interpreting NAEP results as implying causal relations. Inferences related to student group performance or to the effectiveness of public or nonpublic schools, for example, should take into consideration the many socioeconomic and educational factors that may also have an impact on performance.” In other words, there are many factors influencing student performance on tests other than the school in which he or she sits, so don’t use the test results to “prove” that one school is better than another or that one state’s schools are better than another’s. But, apparently the school choice advocates didn’t want to be bothered with the facts. It’s interesting to note that there is also plenty of data available to suggest that Florida’s claims of success may be inflated and politically motivated. Its graduation rate, for example, remains dismal, and one would think that would be a pretty significant piece of data to use in this discussion. Sadly, it seems that political leaders from other states have fallen into the same trap as ours have, because many are lining up to learn what Florida has done so well. Interestingly enough, some of these leaders come from states that a more comprehensive study of data suggests are already superior to Florida. One can only hope that reason somehow prevails before significant policy changes occur that further impacts how our tax dollars are spent.

Faithfulness should be filled with authenticity Faithful. I overheard a group of ladies talking recently about faithfulness. It made me think of all the different uses of “faithful” we have in our everyday lives. Of course there is being faithful in a relationship, faithful to a cause, faithful to a religion and faithful to people in general. I looked up the definition of faithful and it surprised me how many synonyms there are for the word. There is “loyal, constant, true, devoted, true-blue, unswerving, staunch, steadfast, dedicated, committed, trusty, trustworthy, dependable and reliable.” We are expected to be “faithful” in a number of areas in our life. I think the meanings that mean the most to me right now are unswerving, dedicated and committed. I watched “The Blind Side” prior to the conversation I overheard and it got my mind turning about how we are really suppose to be in our lives — faithful, dedicated and committed — not just in the

Katie Yantis Troy Daily News Columnist “season of giving,” but all year around. For those who have never seen “The Blind Side,” it’s based on a true story of a family taking in an underprivileged boy who was never given the chance to get an education or opportunities to advance himself. Once the family took him in, he got a proper education with some extra help from teachers going above what is expected and eventually made it on to the football team — leading to a successful life. The mom of the house shares her story with her friends in the higher class. She realizes how much the boy she took into her home is

affecting her life instead of the reverse, which many would expect. The experience changes the family and all of those involved. The movie is called “The Blind Side” because his job as a football player is to protect “the blind side” of the quarterback. However, I see such a better hidden meaning behind the title. The blind side of life. How we should be dedicated and committed in a blind fashion in our effort to help others. We should be dedicated in our lives to others and committed to our love, our giving and our goals all year around. I can appreciate that people dig deep in themselves to give to others during the “season of giving,” but why can we not be like that all year around? If we were, couldn’t our lives be enriched by our dedication to improving the lives of others the way Sandra Bullock improved her and her families life while improving the life of someone she didn’t know.

A second definition for “faithful” was “authentic.” We (and when I say we, I mean myself as well) need to be authentic in our efforts for ourselves, our families and for those we help. Bullock had to evaluate herself in her reasoning for helping the boy. She had a conversation with him to make sure everything that happens in the movie was what he wanted and not because it was what she wanted. Authenticity is one of the most important qualities in a spirit of giving, as well as applying authenticity to all areas of faithfulness, whether it be to a goal of running, improving your life or improving a relationship. Our efforts should always be filled with authenticity and love so they are sincere and when we do so, those on the receiving end will recognize the efforts are sincere and will mean even more in the end.

BY WILL E. SANDERS Ohio Community Media Fire inspectors have officially declared a Nov. 8 blaze that devastated a home located at 707 McKinley Ave. an arson fire, according to the Piqua Fire Department. Fire investigators posted signage at the property this week identifying the fire as an arson and have set a reward of $5,000 for any person who furnishes information leading to the identification of those

PIQUA responsible for the fire. The reward is being offered through the Ohio Blue Ribbon Arson Committee. Those with any information can report it anonymously by calling 7782015. “After collecting evidence and taking statements, the state fire marshal’s forensics lab ruled it an arson,” said Piqua Fire Captain John Kendall. “We have not had any luck with

finding any motivation to burn the place so far.” The early morning blaze on Nov. 8 was ruled a suspicious fire from the start and the fire destroyed the home, which sustained significant damage to the entire structure. Estimated damages have been set at about $20,000. The home was unoccupied at the time of the fire, had no electricity and had a pad lock on its door. Fire officials said the home was mostly used for storage.

Grease fire causes $57,000 in damages Inspector: Smoke detectors helped prevent fatalities BY WILL E.

It saved their lives. With the speed of this fire, there was a good chance there could have been a fatality.” The tenants were not injured, but while fighting the blaze a Piqua firefighter suffered a cut on

A family lawyer can provide the right advice Dear Annie: We are the grandparents of a beautiful 4-year-old girl. We have been watching her for the past three months because her parents had their water service shut off due to lack of payment. A month ago, they had their gas and electricity shut off, as well. They are living off of the welfare system with no other means of support. In the past, my wife and I have paid a lot of money to keep their utilities on, but this time we took a stand and decided not to. Instead, we opted to assist in taking care of their daughter until they can fix this situation, knowing it will probably happen again. We want our granddaughter to have a shot at normalcy, and we feel she will never get that if we return her to her parents. Unfortunately, my wife and I lack both the finances to raise a child and the vitality necessary to keep up with her. We don't know what to do. If we decide to seek custody, how do we go about it? Is there financial aid available for people in our situation? We want to do the right thing for our granddaughter. — Geezer with a Cause in Los Angeles Dear Los Angeles: Instead of seeking custody, you might want to apply for legal guardianship of your granddaughter or become her foster parents. Would the parents voluntarily allow this? That would be the easiest way to do it. Discuss your options with an attorney who specializes in family law. You can get referrals for lowcost legal assistance through LawHelp California ( Dear Annie: We work in an office where the employees (mostly the female employees) bring treats — candy or homemade goodies — on a regular basis. This always has been a nice gesture and much appreciated. The problem is a new employee who doesn't seem to understand the concept of taking your share and no more. "Vern" is the first one at your desk if he notices candy. Then he keeps coming back over and over again, taking large quantities on each trip. Those treats are for everyone. Vern is really a nice man in so many ways, but we are about ready to discontinue bringing treats to the office because this is so frustrating. One of the employees made special homemade treats for her boss on his birthday, and Vern stood at her desk to get his share before anyone else, and then returned for a second helping before others had their first. No one wants to hurt Vern's feelings, and he doesn't seem to get the hint when comments are made to others in his presence. Do you have any suggestions about how to handle this? We hate to see a nice tradition ruined because the goodies can no longer be shared with everyone. — Didn't Take This Guy To Raise Dear Didn't: Someone needs to speak up. If Vern returns for seconds before others have had a turn, say, "A lot of folks haven't had any treats yet, Vern, so no second helpings until everyone has had one." If he takes six cupcakes, stop him, saying, "Sorry, Vern, only one per customer." Be nice, firm and consistent. We don't think it will take much to retrain the guy, so please give him a chance before you eliminate something that all of you obviously enjoy a great deal. Dear Annie: "Showerless in Sheboygan" said her retired military husband refused to shower or get a haircut. You suggested he might be depressed. My husband is a psychologist with the Veterans Administration. V.A. services are available in most states for mental health issues or changes in health status. Please pass this along. — V.A. Supporter in Louisville, Ky. Dear Louisville: Thank you for reminding those readers who have served in the military that the V.A. ( can provide psychological as well as medical counsel.

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. MONDAY’S SOLUTION:


Please reprint recipe for Heloise’s cream soup Dear Heloise: I am trying to find the recipe for the cream soup that can be used in place of a can of mushroom soup. I want to make a chicken casserole, and I can no longer use canned soup because of the high sodium content. There is salt in everything, I have discovered. — Dortha K., Great Bend, Kan. Salt is not an added ingredient in this Heloise’s Non-Fat Cream Soup recipe, which can serve as a base for any cream soup you make. For the chicken bouillon powder, there are salt-free versions available. You will need: 1 cup nonfat dried milk powder 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes 2 tablespoons cornstarch

Hints from Heloise Columnist 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon powder 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, crushed 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed 1/4 teaspoon black pepper Mix these ingredients together and store in an airtight container. Then, when you want to make

your soup, you will add: 2 cups cold water 1/2 cup of the main ingredient (for example, mushroom for a mushroom cream soup) In a large saucepan over medium heat, place the water and premade mix, heating until it is thick. Then add the main ingredient of your choosing and cook until done. You always can add more water if the soup becomes too thick. Finish by seasoning to your own taste. This recipe is included in my pamphlet of AllTime Favorite Recipes. For a copy, send $5 and a long, selfaddressed, stamped (64 cents) envelope to: Heloise/All-Time Favorites, P.O. Box 795001, San

Antonio, TX 78279-5001. If you are counting calories, try using nonfat dried milk powder in your recipes that call for whole milk. — Heloise HELOISE UPDATE Dear Readers: To remove stubborn coffee or tea stains from cups and mugs, the older hints are to use a denture tablet, table salt or baking soda. There is a Heloise Update: Take about a tablespoon of dishwasher detergent (powder), put it in the cup or mug and add boiling water. Let it sit for five to 10 minutes. When the time is up, with no scrubbing necessary, the stain usually is gone. — Heloise



Wednesday, November 30, 2011










HOROSCOPE Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2011 It may be during those very times in the coming months when you feel everything is going against you that you will achieve some of your greatest successes. There is a lesson to be learned here: Never give up. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Put your analytical skills to work, so that you don’t overlook any situation that could produce something that would be of a huge advantage to you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Be firm but also fair when it comes to any financial dealings. Don’t feel obligated to give more than your share when you know you won’t be compensated for it in any way. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — A lesson might be learned from a negative experience that you may have to endure. As long as what happens to you isn’t wasted, it will be worth the unpleasantness. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Keep to yourself any ambitious undertaking that you are contemplating. Don’t expose your intentions until you know you can pull if off without a hitch. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Try to include in your business meetings an associate who has been a frequent presence. With this person’s vast experience, she or he may have many unique things to offer. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — It’ll be your effectiveness, not your flamboyance, that gets the attention and wins the respect of others. You won’t have to play any games, just the hard, cold facts will do. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Help a disagreeable old friend to look for the good in people instead of always dwelling on what’s wrong. It’s just a bad habit, and life can be a whole lot nicer if they can learn to brighten up. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — If you can keep your mind riveted on the results that everyone desires, it will help overcome any obstacles that might periodically get in the way. Don’t let anything impede your progress. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Concentrate on and emphasize the facts, not the frills when trying to present a case to others. Doing so would help sway to your cause the people whose help you need. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Get your mind off all the small details and focus on a profitable purpose as a whole. Once you do, everything else will automatically fall into place. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Your peers recognize that you have the leadership abilities to steer everyone through what might be a difficult situation. Take the reins and guide them through the maze. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — An opportunity, albeit of a limited nature, will present itself to you through the offices of a grateful person whom you assisted in the past.

(AP) — Today is Wednesday, Nov. 30, the 334th day of 2011. There are 31 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 30, 1835, Samuel Langhorne Clemens better known as Mark Twain was born in Florida, Mo. On this date: • In 1782, the United States and Britain signed preliminary peace articles in Paris, ending the Revolutionary War. • In 1803, Spain completed

following March with a Soviet victory.) • In 1960, the last DeSoto was built by Chrysler, which had decided to retire the brand after 32 years. • Today’s Birthdays: Historian Jacques Barzun is 104.

Jackson doctor called suicidal after verdict will be housed in a one-man cell and be kept away from other inmates. The tall, imposing Murray, who has been in jail for three weeks, was allowed to change into street clothes — a charcoal gray suit and white shirt — for court. But he wore prison issue white socks and soft slippers. Jackson’s family said in a statement read in court that they were not seeking revenge but a stiff sentence for Murray that served as a warning to opportunistic doctors. Afterward, they said they were pleased with the judge’s sentence. “We’re going to be a family. We’re going to move forward. We’re going to tour, play the music and miss him,” brother Jermaine Jackson said. After sentencing, Murray mouthed the words “I love you” to his mother and girlfriend in the courtroom. Murray’s mother, Milta Rush, sat alone on a bench in the courthouse hallway. “My son is not what they charged him to be,” she said

quietly. “He was a gentle child from the time he was small.” Of her son’s future, she said, “God is in charge.” Murray, 58, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter after a sixweek trial that presented the most detailed account yet of Jackson’s final hours, a story of the performer’s anguish over being unable to sleep. Pastor was relentless in his bashing of Murray, saying the physician lied repeatedly and abandoned Jackson when he was at his most vulnerable — under the anesthesia that Murray administered in an unorthodox effort to induce sleep. “It should be made very clear that experimental medicine is not going to be tolerated, and Mr. Jackson was an experiment,” he said. Propofol is supposed to be used in hospital settings and has never been approved for sleep treatments, yet Murray acknowledged giving it to Jackson then leaving the

room on the day the singer died. As for defense arguments that Jackson tempted his own fate when he demanded propofol, Pastor said, “Dr. Murray could have walked away and said no as countless others did. But Dr. Murray was

intrigued with the prospect of this money-for-madness medicine.” Pastor said Murray was motivated by a desire for “money, fame and prestige” and cared more about himself than Jackson. The doctor was deeply in debt when he agreed to

serve as Jackson’s personal physician for $150,000 a month during his comeback tour. The singer, however, died before Murray received any money. “There are those who feel Dr. Murray is a saint and those who feel he is the devil,” Pastor said.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge’s stern voice broke the silence of a Los Angeles courtroom: “Money for madness medicine,” he said before sentencing Dr. Conrad Murray to the maximum four years behind bars for Michael Jackson’s death. “Absolutely no sense of fault, and is and remains dangerous” to the community, Judge Michael Pastor said as he delivered a nearly half-hour tongue lashing that denounced Murray as a greedy, remorseless physician whose gross negligence killed the King of Pop. Pastor said Murray sold out his profession for a promised fee of $150,000 a month and accused Murray of committing a “horrific violation of trust” when he agreed to give Jackson a powerful anesthetic every night as an unorthodox cure for insomnia. Murray will likely serve less than two years in county jail, not state prison, because of California’s overcrowded prisons and jails. Sheriff’s officials said he

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. If you have questions regarding scams like these or others, please contact the Ohio Attorney General’s office at (800)282-0515.

Tips on Caring for a Real Tree

Live Christmas Tree Directory

1. Keep the tree in a cool, shady place like the garage or porch until ready to bring indoors to decorate. 2. Saw a thin disk (1/2 to 1 inch) off the trunk prior to placing the tree in a water-holding stand. 3. Make the cut perpendicular to the axis of the stem, NOT in a v-shape or at angles. The tree will “drink” its water through the layer between the bark and wood. If you shave the bark off of the trunk the tree will not be able to absorb water. 4. Place the tree in its water-holding stand within two hours after making the cut to the trunk. When a tree is cut it will naturally form a seal of sap over it’s stump to keep moisture in the tree. You must break the seal to allow the tree to once again “drink” the water needed to keep it fresh throughout the holidays. 5. Your stand must be able to hold enough water for the size of the tree. A good rule of thumb is a one-quart capacity for every inch of diameter of the trunk.

Boeheim still the coach at Syracuse Syracuse University Chancellor Nancy Cantor gave men’s basketball coach Jim Boeheim a vote of confidence Tuesday amid an investigation of child molestation allegations against his former longtime assistant coach. Cantor emerged from an economic development conference with state officials and said: “Coach Boeheim is our coach.” Some commentators and sex abuse victims’ advocates had said Boeheim should resign or be fired after three men, including two former Syracuse ballboys, accused former assistant coach Bernie Fine of molesting them and Boeheim verbally attacked the accusers.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Before Urban Meyer could agree to a contract as Ohio State’s new football coach, he had to sign something provided by his two college-age daughters and his young son. It was a piece of pink paper on which he promised that he won’t overdo it, that he won’t work too hard, that he’ll take care of himself this MEYER time. “This is a contract that my kids made me sign before I was allowed to sign a real contract,” he said. “It’s tougher than any other contract I’ve signed in my life.” With that out of the way, Meyer was free to sign a sixyear deal that pays him around $4.4 million a year, not counting bonuses and incentives.

■ College Football

Meyer ■ CONTINUED FROM 16 onships during his glittering six-year tenure at Florida, he’ll be expected to bring some luster back to a football program that has been tainted by 12 months of NCAA violations, suspensions and a 6-6 record. Meyer resigned as Gators coach after last season, citing health concerns and a desire to spend more time with his family. “A year ago in my mind I was convinced I was done coaching,” the 47-year-old Meyer said. Now he’s convinced he can balance a healthy life and a high-pressure job.

“I had a health scare a couple of years ago that made me sit back, reflect,” Meyer said of heart and stress problems. “I didn’t feel right. But I feel fantastic now.” He also yearned to be back on the sideline at the Horseshoe. “If not for the coaching position at Ohio State, I would not have coached this year,” said Meyer, who grew up in Ashtabula, Ohio, about 200 miles from campus. Interim coach Luke Fickell, who took over when Jim Tressel was forced out for breaking NCAA rules,

will coach the Buckeyes in their bowl game. Meyer will keep him on as an assistant but declined to say in what capacity. Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said his first conversation with Meyer about the coaching job was by phone on Nov. 20. The two met face-to-face three days later. Things moved quickly from there. “We’re blessed to have him as our football coach,” said Smith, who said it was luck that he was able to find a candidate with such a sterling resume. Meyer spent six years at Florida, winning national

titles in 2006 and 2008. He spent his year away from coaching working as a college football analyst for ESPN and watching his two daughters play volleyball for their college teams. Meyer met with the team on Monday before the news conference and said he was impressed with the players’ enthusiasm. Meyer takes over a program that could face additional NCAA sanctions and was crippled by Tressel’s forced resignation. The Buckeyes completed their only season under Fickell with a 40-34 loss to Michigan on Saturday that

snapped a seven-game winning streak against their rivals. Tressel was forced out for knowing but not telling his superiors that Buckeyes players likely broke NCAA rules by taking cash and free or discounted tattoos from the subject of a federal drug-trafficking investigation. In 10 seasons as a head coach two at Bowling Green, two at Utah and six at Florida Meyer has a 104-23 record. His teams are 7-1 in bowl games, including the Gators’ 41-14 victory over unbeaten and top-ranked Ohio State in the 2007 Bowl

Championship Series title game. Meyer initially denied all the talk about succeeding Tressel, saying he wasn’t interested in leaving ESPN. “He enjoyed what he was doing, but I think he also had the bug to start coaching again,” ESPN broadcast partner and former Ohio State linebacker Chris Spielman said. “This was just an opportunity that he couldn’t pass up.” Ohio State’s .500 record this season marked the most losses at Ohio State since John Cooper’s 1999 team also went 6-6 overall and 3-5 in the Big Ten.

All-Ohio ■ CONTINUED FROM 16 ball. On defense, Foster finished the regular season with 73 tackles, three interceptions, two tackles for loss and nine passes broken up on defense. On offense, he had 91 carries for 676 yards and five touchdowns to go with 14 catches for 127 yards. He also had a kickoff return for a touchdown. “Every game I wanted to go out and play my best,” Foster said. “I wanted to go out and play every play like it was my last one. I just tried to play every play as well as I could.” Foster will graduate early from Troy in midDecember and will begin taking classes at the University of Cincinnati after the holiday break. He’s hoping that by enrolling early, he’ll get a head start on earning playing time for the Bearcats. “I’m anxious to get down there,” Foster said. “Hopefully I’ll get a chance to play early. It’s kind of hard to say goodbye to my teammates, my classmates, my teachers and my coaches, though. I’m going to be starting a whole different life.”

Finfrock was one of the top running backs in the area, rushing for 1,636 yards, while Poland, a 6foot-6 offensive lineman, helped paved the way for Finfrock in the trenches. “This is a great honor for them,” Milton-Union coach Bret Pearce said. “Those two are such good football players individually. But even more than that, they were great teammates, great leaders and great people. “They both stepped up their play. One, physically and two, from a mental standpoint.” Milton went 8-2 this season to earn a spot in the DIV playoffs, where it was ousted by Waynesville. “When you have kids getting all-state recognition, a part of it is the kid, but it’s also because of the people around them,” Pearce said. “I think those two would be the first to tell you that this belongs to their teammates, as well.”

Tippecanoe’s Halee Printz passes the ball. ■ CONTINUED FROM 16 games she may try to get too many others involved. When you can score and get to the hole like she can, you’ve got to use that. “She’s got to be a little more selfish sometimes.” In the first half, though, Tippecanoe (0-2) kept things close thanks to the efforts of Brown University-bound Ellise Sharpe and Morgan Miller, who came off the bench for her first action of the year while still nursing an injury. And her impact was immediate. With another smart and composed ballhandler on the floor, Tippecanoe cut its turnovers from 10 in the first quarter to two in the second and did a better job of finding its way through Carroll’s press. Sharpe hit Miller in transition for a layup to cut the lead to 18-16 midway through the second, and a pair of Miller free throws tied the score for the first time since the game’s first minute. “We didn’t know what to expect so far as how she would be tonight,” Tippecanoe coach Aaron Jackson said of Miller. “She was huge for us in the middle (breaking the press). We weren’t expecting her to be back quite that well already.” A 3 by freshman Halee Printz gave Tippecanoe the lead at 25-24, but Miller committed her third foul on the ensuing possession with 2:23 left in the half. Susan Wollenhaupt hit a pair of free throws to give the lead back to Carroll, then Erica Comer hit a jumper to put the Devils back on top. But Madison Schroeder scored on a putback to give the edge back to the Patriots at the break, 28-27. Limited by the foul trouble, Miller had all of her 14 points and six rebounds in the first half. From that point on, it


Tippecanoe’s Ellise Sharpe battles for the ball in a loss to Carroll Tuesday night in Tipp City. was all Austrias. A steal and layup by Kelley Austria began the third quarter, then Wollenhaupt hit inside to make it a five-point game. Comer and Sharpe hit back-to-back shots to cut the lead to one, but a putback by Kelley Austria, a 3 by Caroline Austria — Carroll’s first connection from beyond the arc in the game — and a 3 by Kelley Austria made it 40-31 heading into the fourth. “We started to get out of our press after the half. It just wasn’t working against them,” Berry said. “They’re smart enough to get the ball into the right person’s hands against it. We typically generate a lot of points out of it and try to tire out teams, but instead we went to either a triangle-and-two or a box-and-one depending on who they had on the floor. “We let (Miller) get hers in the first half, but then we made some adjustments and didn’t let them get those same shots that they had.” “The one stat that jumped out at us was our 27 turnovers — and most

of those came in the second half,” Jackson said. “And they also took 23 more shots than we did. Carroll just made some great adjustments at the half.” Kelley Austria kicked off the fourth quarter with three steals that led to three-point plays, and Caroline Austria added another 3 as Carroll built a lead as big as 54-35. Sharpe connected on her third three-point play of the game with 2:36 to play, but the Patriots wouldn’t let the Devils get any closer. All told, the Austrias outscored the Devils 22-16 in the second half, with Kelley Austria racking up 16 and Caroline Austria six after the break. Wollenhaupt finished with 13 points and six rebounds and Caroline Austria and Schroeder each added eight points for Carroll. Sharpe tallied 11 points and dished out five assists for Tippecanoe, while Comer added 12 points. “We rebounded a lot better (than in Friday’s loss to Butler) and our

shooting percentage was better,” Jackson said. “We definitely had some good things to take out of tonight’s game. But 27 turnovers and 23 more shot attempts than us — that was huge.” Tippecanoe remains at home Saturday to kick off Central Buckeye Conference Kenton Trail Division play against Tecumseh.

Syracuse chancellor: Boeheim’s our coach ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Syracuse University Chancellor Nancy Cantor gave men’s basketball coach Jim Boeheim a vote of confidence Tuesday amid an investigation of child molestation allegations against his former longtime assistant coach. Cantor emerged from an economic development conference with state officials and said: “Coach Boeheim is our coach.”

Some commentators and sex abuse victims’ advocates had said Boeheim should resign or be fired after three men, including two former Syracuse ballboys, accused former assistant coach Bernie Fine of molesting them and Boeheim verbally attacked the accusers. “Coach Boeheim is our coach; he’s getting the team ready tonight,” Cantor said. “We’re very

pleased with what he said Sunday night, and we stand by him.” After initially saying Fine’s first two accusers were lying to make money in the wake of the Penn State University sexual abuse scandal, Boeheim backed off those comments in a statement Sunday. “What is most important is that this matter be fully investigated and that anyone with information

be supported to come forward so that the truth can be found,” Boeheim said after Fine’s firing. “I deeply regret any statements I made that might have inhibited that from occurring or been insensitive to victims of abuse.” Bobby Davis first contacted Syracuse police in 2002 about Fine, but there was no investigation because the statute of limitations had passed.
