ANALYSIS

Romney faces two big rivals in Obama and Gingrich WASHINGTON (AP) — Suddenly Mitt Romney is fighting a two-front political war. The Republican presidential contender has skated along for much of the year as GOP challengers surged and faded. But now he faces an unexpected, more serious threat from Newt Gingrich, just as Barack Obama’s team is sharpening its criticism of Romney, whom the president’s aides view as his likeliest foe next fall. With only a month before the Iowa caucuses kick off the nominating fight, Gingrich’s rise has forced Romney’s campaign to evaluate a new reality: He no longer has the luxury of staying above the Republican primary fray, avoiding tough questions about his own record and hammering Obama at will while essentially ignoring his GOP rivals. Well aware of the new challenge, Romney has started fighting back against two opponents from opposite ends of the political spectrum no easy feat while also defending himself from continuing criticism of reversals, equivocations and shifts on a range of issues. What does he have to say now about Gingrich? “He’s a lifelong politician,” Romney declared this week, signaling his intention to go after the former House speaker and long-time Washington insider in hopes of knocking him off course. Romney also is set to air his first television commercials on Friday in Iowa, where polls show Gingrich and him locked in a tight race. It’s another indication of how seriously Romney is taking the Georgian’s rise. Romney also has started subtly contrasting his character with Gingrich’s once rocky private life. He said on Fox News that he’s a person “who has devoted his life to his family, to his faith, to his country.” At the same time, Romney intends to keep the heat on Obama, convinced that his best chance at clinching the GOP nomination is to persuade Republican primary voters that he’s the strongest candidate to take on the Democratic incumbent on their biggest issue, the economy, next fall. Romney’s response was swift when the Democratic National Committee rolled out TV ads this week attacking Romney for flip-flopping on a series of issues, including abortion and health care. The Republican’s team quickly organized conference calls with top supporters in about a dozen states a demonstration of organizing power meant to serve as a warning to both Gingrich and Obama. “They don’t want to see me as the nominee, that’s for sure,” Romney chided in response to the ads. “It shows that they’re awfully afraid of facing me in the general election. They want to throw the primary process to anybody but me, but bring it on. We’re ready for them.” Obama’s aides privately say they see Romney as the Republican most likely to win the party’s nomination and they have been flummoxed that no GOP rival has gone after him aggressively. By stepping up the heat, the president’s aides hope to bloody Romney so he emerges from the GOP fight as a damaged nominee. Or, in what many Democrats view as a lesslikely scenario, the Republicans would pick a candidate who would be weaker in the general election. Gingrich has advantages of his own, in the primary fight or a general election. He’s universally known within the GOP with broad grassroots support, and he has a deep grasp of policy issues. But he lacks any significant campaign organization after his staff resigned en masse in June. His fundraising dried up, and his campaign is still paying off debts from earlier this year. He also carries personal baggage including two divorces and acknowledged infidelity that could turn off conservative Republicans in Iowa, where voters will first choose among Romney, Gingrich and their rivals. And he has some political problems, having backed proposals now considered conservative apostasy such as an individual mandate for Americans to buy health insurance. The coming weeks will tell whether Romney can withstand the scrutiny and wage two fights at once.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Boston Globe on the American Jobs Act: President Barack Obama signed into law provisions of the American Jobs Act to help unemployed veterans. The measures had broad bipartisan support and provide significant tax credits to businesses that hire those who have returned from war; additional credits are given to those who hire “wounded warriors.” At a time when there is little agreement on war policy, the tax code, or how to solve joblessness in the broader population, the passage of this bill — signed just as the supercommittee was throwing in the towel — was a welcome sign that progress is possible.

Yet it is also a reminder of how difficult life is for many returning troops. The Bureau of Labor Statistics puts the unemployment rate above 12 percent for veterans of recent wars, more than 3 points higher than the civilian market. The new bill, structured to create incentives to businesses willing to hire long-term unemployed veterans, will be paid for by delaying a planned reduction in fees for a Department of Veterans Affairs home-loan program. The bill also will support transition-assistance planning and make it easier for veterans to use their military skills to satisfy state licensing and accreditation requirements

that often hinder employment. Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown was instrumental in moving these provisions forward. As calls grow louder for a thorough reform of the federal tax code — and for an elimination of tax credits — the bill for unemployed veterans sends an important message. While some credits are little more than giveaways crafted by lobbyists for favored industries, others are attempts to enlist private businesses in addressing broad public needs. The latter is true here: Returning veterans are deserving and struggling, and Congress was right to offer a hand.

Lack of material leaves columnist in Jeopardy! You know how the popular game show Jeopardy! has that one category called “Potpourri” where all the questions have absolutely nothing in common but are just too good not to quiz the contestants? Well folks, this is my “Potpourri” column in which I have so many tidbits of things to talk about, but I can’t quite squeeze an entire column out of just one. But I love each and every one of you, so sit back and buzz in when you know the answer and let the good times roll. For $1: This U.S. President was shot and killed in Gettysburg by a Confederate soldier. Answer: Who is no one? This particular category stems from my visit to the Lincoln Memorial last weekend. This is the explanation I overhead a mother of three impressionable boys of how our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln (he’s pretty notable) was killed. I about screamed and shook the woman. But I was in D.C. at a crowded national monument and had to restrain myself. For the record, the assas-

Melanie Yingst Troy Daily News Columnist sination of United States President Abraham Lincoln took place on Good Friday, April 14, 1865, when he was shot at Ford’s Theater by stage actor John Wilkes Booth, a Confederate sympathizer. Lincoln died the following day. Thank you for letting me set that straight. It was bugging me. For $2: This is the amount of times that is socially acceptable to stop at a rest area during an 8-hour road trip with me. Answer: What is one? And one time only. And this stop must also include a gas fill-up and food. I would make an excellent semi-truck driver. If I never had to stop and get gas, I’m sure I could drive cross the country without ever stopping. This

comes from my youth being trapped in a pick-up truck or tractor cab for hours on end. I’m thankful for those times, although many of my fellow travelers are not as well off when they ride with me. Hey, once we are on the road, we aren’t stopping! You’ve all been warned. Amen. For $3: This is the amount of weeks that it took for me to figure out my oven doesn’t work. Answer: What is eight weeks? Yes people, I will admit up front that I’m not much of a cook. So when I finally unearthed my apron and decided to cook a frozen pizza, I was puzzled that while the oven got hot, it failed to cook my masterpiece in 20 minutes. I don’t know what is more sad — the fact that I tried to cook a frozen pizza in a lukewarm oven for an hour or that it took me two months to actually use the oven. The toaster oven was a sufficient substitute. What can I say? I like my soup heated up in the microwave. For $4: These two countries serve Mr. Ed for dinner. Answer: What is Japan and

France? Last month, Congress lifted the 5-year ban on horse slaughter. I don’t know about you guys, but if McDonald’s starts featuring the “McEquine” I’m going to have to say “neigh!” and trot on by. DAILY DOUBLE! For $10: This is the amount of acres my father has left to harvest. Answer: Are you guys crazy? You don’t ever ask a farmer in December how many acres they have left! With all the rain in the spring and now in the late, late, late fall, this is not the time to ask how many acres are left to harvest. Only when all wagons and combines have been tucked back in the barn can you cautiously (I repeat, cautiously) ask how this particular harvest season has treated a farmer. Trust me on this folks. Trust me. Well friends, thank you for playing Jeopardy! with me. Don’t forget to have your pets spayed or neutered!

‘The Christmas Song’ to be heard by all Tipp church to present show as a gift to the community BY KATIE YANTIS Staff Writer kyantis@tdnpublishing.com A number of area residents will take the Christmas story to the stage Dec. 10-11 when they present “The Christmas Song.” Tipp City United Methodist Church members decided this year the church would put on a free show for residents to watch, along with a nice meal to eat during the Saturday performances. Director Judy Riesser said the church has done a similar show in the past, but it has been a few years. “We did some big ones about eight years ago,” Riesser said. She said the planning began after the choir director Linda Goodman saw the show at a conference.

TIPP CITY Riesser said she was surprised by the instant interest level for participation in the show. “We started in March, when we had our first meeting,” she said. “I was so surprised. The meeting was filled. It was great. We have been working on it all summer and of course cranked it up since.” Saturday’s production is filled, but there is still time to get tickets for the matinee on Sunday. “It’s our gift to the community,” Riesser said. “It’s the story for Christmas, the reason we have Christmas.” With the Saturday night show already “sold out,” Riesser said it sends a clear message about what local residents are

AP MOVIE REVIEWS “Coriolanus” — Shakespeare’s “Coriolanus” isn’t one of his highest regarded plays, but it’s one of his most political. It’s about a proud Roman war hero Coriolanus (Ralph Fiennes) whose postbattle entry to politics goes so abysmally that he’s branded a traitor and banished from the country. Coriolanus’ sympathy for the people, you see, isn’t much — he calls them “fragments,” for starters. Fiennes, like many before him, recognizes the play’s contemporary relevance: leaders with deaf ears, capricious publics and out-of-control media storms. As director, he’s updated the play to the cable-news present and, with the help of John Logan’s smartly adapted screenplay, kept Shakespeare’s language. It succeeds most as an intense and vivid character drama. The acting is largely excellent: Fiennes as the bloody warrior with all-consuming rage; Vanessa Redgrave, startlingly graceful as Coriolanus’ mother, Volumnia; Brian Cox as the operating campaign manager Menenius; and Gerard Butler as Coriolanus’ mortal enemy Tullus Aufidius. After the harried, hand-held first half, the film finds its balance and Fiennes’ performance (sometimes a bit too rage-filled) grows fuller, finally bursting forth in a late rush of sympathy. Best of all is the play’s name-calling: Fiennes exhorts Butler with a sneering “Boy!” and, somewhere, Harry Potter is shaking. R for some bloody violence. 122 minutes. Three stars out of four. — Jake Coyle, AP Entertainment Writer “Shame” — Despite the ado about its NC-17 rating, this is the least-sexy movie about sex you will ever see. Michael Fassbender lays himself bare, literally and metaphorically, as a sex addict prowling an increasingly dark and dangerous New York City. But there’s nothing titillating about the often graphic interludes in which his character, Brandon, engages; they grow more desperate, animalistic and unsatisfying — for everyone involved — as the film spirals toward its overwhelming conclusion. Fassbender reunites with Steve McQueen, the British artist-turned-filmmaker who directed him in his breakthrough role in 2008’s “Hunger,” in which he starred as Irish hunger striker Bobby Sands. His performance here is startling, riveting, haunting. He immerses himself and makes you feel as if you’re truly watching a man hellbent on exorcising his demons through compulsive self-destruction. On the exterior, though, Brandon is cool, stylish and precise. But he’ll hold the glance of a pretty, married woman on the subway a little too long, and his computer at work is filthy with porn. He finds his routine disrupted with the unannounced arrival of his sister, Sissy (Carey Mulligan), a wayward lounge singer with nowhere else to go. The two have an unspecified history of family damage that makes it impossible for either of them to find a loving, stable romance. NC-17 for some explicit sexual content. 99 minutes. Three stars out of four. — Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic “Sleeping Beauty” — Precisely staged but maddeningly obtuse, this is an artful exercise in pointlessness. Australian novelist Julia Leigh’s first feature as writer and director has an admittedly voyeuristic allure. Lucy (“Sucker Punch” star Emily Browning), a college student of pristine, porcelain beauty, engages in a series of increasingly odd, odd jobs to pay the bills before becoming a lingerie-clad wine server at elite dinners and, eventually, an unconscious plaything for wealthy old men. Leigh depicts this surreal descent matter-of-factly, through assured, long takes in which the camera quite often just holds still and takes in the kinky trappings of this rarefied world. Browning reveals nothing, either — when she’s awake, she’s so passive that she may as well be asleep — even as she snorts coke with a strange woman in a nightclub bathroom or lets a coin-toss determine which random, middle-aged man she’ll sleep with that night. Leigh takes the character into deeper and more dangerous psychological territory, but Lucy is such a cipher it’s impossible to tell, or care, whether this journey is taking any sort of toll on her. Ambiguity can be appealing and challenging and all, but “Sleeping Beauty” takes that approach to frustrating extremes, which ultimately proves irreparable. Unrated but contains sexual situations, nudity, drug use and language. 104 minutes. Two stars out of four. — Christy Lemire

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

Put it behind you, or move on Dear Annie: I work for a major corporation, and I like my job. However, my boss has betrayed me. She is single, and I wanted to set her up with a friend of my boyfriend. She sent me her picture, and my boyfriend asked me to send the pic to his phone so he could send it to his friend. Instead of doing that, however, he texted my boss all night long. He asked her to be discreet and not tell me. She showed me all of his text messages, and I broke up with him. A few months later, he apologized and said he was drunk when it happened, and we got back together. While we were apart, he washed the clothes I'd left there and packed them in a canvas bag. When he gave me the bag, I noticed it had my boss's name on it in her own handwriting. That means she was at his place with an overnight bag. I confronted her with this information, and she wouldn't even make eye contact. She said I was crazy. My boyfriend said the same thing. I need to know what to do. —Hurt and Confused in Torrance, Calif. Dear Torrance: So, worst-case scenario, your boss and your boyfriend slept together. Do you believe it won't happen again? Can you forgive them? If so, tell them that and put this behind you. If not, decide whether you want to keep your job and your boyfriend, because you won't be able to trust either of them. Dear Annie: I am a nurse at a walk-in clinic. When did it become OK for parents to help themselves to exam gloves and tongue depressors for the purpose of entertaining their children? It is not unusual to walk into the exam room and find several gloves that have been blown up and are being batted around and children running around the room with tongue depressors in their hands. These medical supplies cost the facility money and are meant for medical use, not party favors. It also is not safe to hand a 3-year-old a tongue depressor. We have stickers that are more appropriate. When my children were little, I would never dream of opening containers in the doctor's office. Is this appropriate behavior? Do people believe they are entitled to these supplies because of the cost of medical care? Or are they simply ignorant? — Baffled Nurse in Indiana Dear Indiana: We've seen doctors and nurses give these gloves and tongue depressors to children to keep them occupied, so it's not a big stretch for parents to think it's OK to do the same. Those folks who are caught depressorred-handed should be told not to do that in the future. Also, try posting a sign asking patients not to take these items. Otherwise, the best you can do is store them in a locked drawer or cabinet. Dear Annie: Thank you for your wonderful advice to "Maine Husband" concerning his family's demands while he cares for his disabled wife. There are 3,500,000 current spousal caregivers in America. We lose our best friend, our lover, our future — half the team that supports income, raises the kids and runs the home. We often sublimate our own health and needs to care for our spouse. The nonprofit Well Spouse Association is the only national peer-to-peer support group dedicated solely to partners providing long-term care, regardless of the underlying illness. Only someone who has been there can truly understand what it takes to maintain your own self when caring for a spouse. Please share with your readers that at www.wellspouse.org we understand and can help. You are not alone. — Lawrence Bocchiere III, President Well Spouse(tm) Association Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Identification options to fly the sky Dear Readers: Taking a TRIP BY AIR for fun, or during the upcoming holiday season? If you have not flown in a while, here is a question for you: What kind of identification is acceptable at the security line? There are several good choices, according to the Transportation Security Administration (www.tsa.gov). Here are some, but not ALL, of the options: * Driver’s license or state photo identification card * U.S. passport * U.S. military ID * Native American tribal photo ID * Foreign-government-issued

Hints from Heloise Columnist passport * Permanent-resident card. Also, did you know that if you don’t have an ID, it doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t be able to fly? If you can provide the TSA some information, it might be able to verify your identity through publicly available computer sites.

This is not really a good choice, as it’s going to probably take extra time. Please be prepared when you travel and expect to go through TSA security. — Heloise SHARED SAVINGS Dear Heloise: I send all my many unwanted coupons to a home for women and children. Most all are used by the women and some shelter workers, too. Thank you. — A Reader, Ontario, Canada Wonderful! Heloise Central checked with a women’s shelter here in San Antonio, and it was very receptive to this hint! Coupons for everyday household and personal grooming items

are a great idea. — Heloise P.S.: While you are at it, if you have hotel amenities such as shampoo, lotion and mouthwash, pass these along, too. CLEAN FEET Dear Heloise: This is not a topic that’s ever touched on. With a back problem and getting a little older, to reach my feet to wash them, especially the soles, can be difficult. Using a dedicated dish wand not only holds the soap and gives them a good scrubbing, but the sponge tip is replaceable. This also is great fun for the little ones. — Holly K., Fort Worth, Texas

HOROSCOPE Friday, Dec. 2, 2011 In the year ahead, you could become involved in a new enterprise that might be huge, but is nevertheless quite promising. Even if early signals are a bit discouraging, if you stay with it, you will eventually succeed. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Before starting another project, be sure to first finish what you’ve already begun. Focus and follow-through become difficult when you have too many things going on at the same time. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Be extremely selective regarding whose counsel you follow. Going with the wrong advice could cause minor complications to turn into very serious ones. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Warning signs are all over your chart, telling you that going to the wrong adviser could cause complications that would turn into grave impediments. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Subdue any kind of inclinations that invite distraction. Chances are they would cause you to waver in your pursuit of an objective, when you should be giving your full attention. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — By pretending you know a lot about something when in reality you know little, you could get yourself in an embarrassing position when asked to explain it to others. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — If a friend of yours attempts to pry some confidential information out of you, hold firm in keeping mum. If this particular info morsel were to be circulated, you’d be blamed. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — All being difficult will get you is a loss of support from your friends. Don’t be your own worst enemy; build bridges, don’t burn them. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Take it slow when engaged in something important that could produce many future rewards, and make sure you do everything right. Patience will get you where you want to go much quicker than haste. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — When caught up in something that is not directly under your control, it behooves you to be on guard. You could easily be blamed for another’s mistake and be forced to rectify it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t get caught up in airing a disagreement with your spouse in front of others. Having an audience would only make matters worse as each of you tries to look like the blameless party. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Conditions are such where a gadget, tool, material or a method could easily cause you to run amok if you’re not totally familiar with its intricacies. Get quality instructions first. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Impulsiveness on your part could cause you to purchase an expensive piece of merchandise for which you currently have little use but hope one day to have. Wait to buy it until you actually need it. COPYRIGHT 2011 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Friday, Dec. 2, the 336th day of 2011. There are 29 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Dec. 2, 1961, Cuban leader Fidel Castro declared himself a Marxist-Leninist who would eventually lead Cuba to Communism in a nationally broadcast speech that began around midnight and ended five hours later. On this date: • In 1804, Napoleon

crowned himself Emperor of the French. • In 1823, President James Monroe outlined his doctrine opposing European expansion in the Western Hemisphere. • In 1859, militant abolitionist John Brown was hanged for his raid on Harpers Ferry the previous October. Artist Georges-Pierre Seurat was born in Paris. • In 1927, Ford Motor Co. unveiled its Model A automobile that replaced its Model T.

• In 1939, New York Municipal Airport-LaGuardia Field (later LaGuardia Airport) went into operation as an airliner from Chicago landed at one minute past midnight. • Today’s Birthdays: Actress Julie Harris is 86. Former Attorney General Edwin Meese III is 80. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., is 72. Actress Cathy Lee Crosby is 67. Movie director Penelope Spheeris is 66. Actor Ron Raines is 62.

Southern Michigan hit by flooding DUNDEE, Mich. (AP) — Heavy rain and runoff from melting snow caused flooding along the River Raisin in southeastern Michigan, damaging buildings, forcing road and bridge closures and setting off frantic sandbagging efforts by people trying to protect their property. In Monroe, where the river flows into Lake Erie about 40 miles south of Detroit, water and raw sewage filled basements in at least one neighborhood on Thursday and threatened several others. “This is the worst we’ve ever seen it,” Monico Adkins told the Monroe Evening News, standing in 4-inch-deep water in his basement. “It smells like human waste.” In the village of Dundee about 14 miles east, floodwater surged onto the state highway 50 bridge, closing it, and swamped several businesses, police Chief David Uhl told the Monroe paper. Some homes would likely be evacuated, he said. “We’re sandbagging wherever we can. We’ve already filled 750 bags

and can deliver them to people if needed,” Uhl said. Mike Wright stacked bags around his laundry and dry cleaner in Dundee, which took in 4 inches of water during a flood in March 2009. He acknowledged the business was in a flood plain. “So I get what I deserve,” he said. “It’s still a good place. You just have to learn to deal with this every once in a while.” Dundee’s post office was closed and its operations were moved temporarily to a post office in nearby Ida.

The Monroe County Road Commission put up so many signs warning of road closures and high water that it ran out of them, managing director Howard Penrod told the Evening News. “People need to be careful and not drive through standing water,” he said. “It’s dangerous. The road could be totally washed out.” In adjacent Lenawee County, officials closed the U.S. 223 bridge in Blissfield and two bridges in Adrian, where some downtown streets were blocked off.

The National Weather Service issued a flood warning and predicted the river would crest Friday or Saturday. Blissfield Mayor James Wonacott said it was expected to surge a foot higher than its crest during the 2009 flood. “Things will be getting worse before it gets better in the next few days,” Wonacott told The Daily Telegram of Adrian. Parks along the river were underwater AP Wednesday, he said, and several homes including Cabins sit submerged in the flooding waters of the his own were likely to be River Raisin in Raisonville Township, Mich., on Thursday. damaged.

Accurso amazed even herself with her finish to her sophomore cross country season at Ohio U n i v e r s i t y, finishing 36th in the NCAA national meet ACCURSO in 20:26.3 in the 6K race in Terra Haute, Ind., earning All-American honors. “Speechless,” Accurso said. “I really don’t know what to say. No, not at all (she didn’t this kind of season coming).” Nor could anyone else — although nothing Accurso accomplishes is a surprise to those who know her. And if she can point to anything that changed from her freshman season at OU, when she finished 32nd in the MAC meet, it would be the strong work ethic that she has always had that led to her breakout season. “I went out to the Junior Nationals in Oregon last spring,” Accurso said. “I think that pushed me to take my training to another level. I had a great summer of training and it has just kind of gone from the other.” She accomplished one of her career goals last month, when she won the MAC meet in 20:35.3, a PR for her at the time. “Before my freshman season, one of the coaches took us out to this big hill in Athens,” Accurso said. “He told us why he got into cross country.

Too balanced to fail Trojans working hard toward goal BY JOSH BROWN Sports Editor jbrown@tdnpublishing.com

Davis, Jones power UK to win Anthony Davis had no idea just how close he was to a triple-double. It was just a dominating night for the Kentucky freshman. Davis scored 15 points, grabbed 15 rebounds and had eight of a school-record 18 blocks in the top-ranked Wildcats’ 81-59 victory over St. John’s on Thursday night. See Page 16.

“Too big to fail” may apply to banks — or it may not, depending on your point of view. But the Troy Trojan swimming team is going a different direction this season. After the fourth large graduating class in a row, the numbers are finding something of a sweet spot. “The team is still much larger than it was when Pam (Fulton) and I started six years ago,” Troy coach Chris Morgan said. “But it’s still a lot smaller than it has been the past two years. We’ve

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 emotional and inspirational speech. Then, he had us right down our goals, both individual and team on the card. “On my card, I wrote down win a MAC championship, then I wrote below that, NCAA national qualifier with a question mark. I wasn’t sure that was something I would ever be able to accomplish.” And even after winning the MAC meet, Accurso could have never envisioned what the next two races would bring — and change her future goals. Going into the NCAA Regional meet at Toledo, Accurso still felt running at the NCAA national meet was a long shot — but she couldn’t have been more wrong. She was the top MAC finisher in the race, taking sixth in 20:40.8 to easily earn a berth at nationals. “It was a hilly course and I ended up passing a lot of runners on the hills,” Accurso said. “I remember in the second half of the race, I started seeing the leaders and knew I was doing pretty well. Our coaches telling me to hold my position. It is a pretty complicated procedure (how they determine how many runners get to nationals). “They don’t announce it until the following Monday (two days later). Last year, 13 qualified from the regional we were in and this year 21 did. Fortunately, our coaches had it figured out and I knew I had made it to nationals. I never expected to do that well.” The NCAA national race was held in Terra Haute, Ind., on Nov. 21. “It was just an amazing race and incredible experience (to be running at nationals),” Accurso said. “I saw Sheila Reed and Jordan Hasay (who finished first and second in the race). Sheila Reed was staying in the same hotel I was in. It was just an unbelievable atmosphere.” As the race got closer, Accurso said reality set in. “I was so nervous,” she said. “I had some friends that came and helped calm me down the last couple days before the race. I was definitely nervous before the race.” Accurso used the same strategy that had worked well for her at regionals, steadily progressing forward in the field of 254 runners. “I had no idea where I was at at the start of the race, because I was pretty far back,” she said. “I think

my coach had projected I would be about 80th in the race.” But, again, she began to pick off runners as the race went on — and by the middle of the race, Accurso knew she had a chance to do something special. “I heard some of the coaches of runners I was close to say, ‘you need 10 more sports for top 40 (AllAmerican)’. That kind of got me going.” With 400 meters left in the race, Accurso was sitting in 36th position, which is exactly where she finished, establishing a new PR of 20:26.3. “I didn’t have to sprint by girls to get AllAmerican,” Accurso said. “I was just hoping I could stay where I was. I passed a few girls coming in, but a few girls passed me — so it was an even exchange.” Even after the finish, she was still trying to convince herself that she was an All-American. “I was just hoping I hadn’t counted wrong,” she said. “Then, when I got to my coaches, they told me I was 36th and All-American — like I said, I am just speechless about it.” Accurso is Ohio University’s first AllAmerican in women’s cross country since Jackie Conrad in 1998. “She started back in the 70s, place wise, around the first mile mark,” OU coach Clay Calkins said. “Juli did a great job progressing through the field as the race went on. She ran a smart race and becoming an All-American is a terrific accomplishment.” And it didn’t take long for word to get back to the Miami East community about her accomplishment. “That’s the great thing about where I am from,” Accurso said. “I feel so blessed to be from Miami East. It is such a supportive community. And to be able to experience this with my family and friends, I couldn’t ask for any more.” Accurso realizes this success puts expectations at a whole new level as she prepares for track season. “I think it does (raise her expectations for track),” the Ohio D-III state champion in the 1,600 her senior year at Miami East, said. “I just hope everything goes well with my training and I stay healthy. I hope I can get back to nationals again in cross country, but if I don’t, this is something I will never forget.” Accurso is truly an AllAmerican — something those around her have known for a long time.

It’s allowed us to focus more on individual instruction — and that’s not a bad thing.” And with a nucleus of returners with postseason experience, the team already has plenty to work with. “We took seven boys and five girls to the district meet last year,” Morgan said. “We graduated a few of those, but the ones we’ve got coming back are seniors

this year. It gives us such a good base for leadership.” Seniors Max Goodall, Will Evans, Mason Riemer and Peter Mengos return from the district meet on the boys side, and seniors Colleen Powers and Reagan Dutton and junior Sammie Hunter are back for the girls. “We lost 10 seniors last year, and now we’ve got seven kids back that went to district last year.

Freshman phenom Davis does everything, No. 1 Kentucky tops St. John’s LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Anthony Davis had no idea just how close he was to a triple-double. It was just a dominating night for the Kentucky freshman. Davis scored 15 points, grabbed 15 rebounds and had eight of a school-record 18 blocks in the top-ranked Wildcats’ 81-59 victory over St. John’s on Thursday night. “He changed everything about the game,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said. “He blocked shots, he scored baskets, he rebounded tough rebounds, he came up with balls.” Terrence Jones added 26 points and nine rebounds for the Wildcats (7-0), who head into a highly anticipated showdown with No. 5 North Carolina on Saturday on a high note after a stalwart defensive performance. “We did our job on defense. They were kind of rattled,” Davis said. “When we lock down defensively, we’re a great defensive team. If we keep playing defense like we are right now, we’ll be fine.” Davis blocked four shots before the first timeout, and Kentucky set the team record with Eloy Vargas’ swat with 2:42 to go. Davis finished one block short of tying the individual mark of nine set by Sam Bowie in 1981 and matched by Andre Riddick in 1993. “It’s like shooting over a tower,” St. John’s guard Nurideen Lindsey said. “He was blocking shots all over the place. It was tough.” God’sgift Achiuwa scored 18 points and Moe Harkless added 16 for the Red Storm (4-4) in St. John’s first appearance in Rupp Arena since the 1985 Final Four when it lost to then-No. 1 Georgetown. This game was much different than the last time the Wildcats took over the No. 1 spot in coach John Calipari’s first year when they lost at South Carolina on Jan. 26, 2010. Davis blocked his sixth shot early in the second

Thursday. half then finished an alleyoop on the other end from Marquis Teague that gave Kentucky a 42-27 lead with 16:26 left. He got his seventh a little over a minute later and his eighth with just over 12 minutes to go. “If you block shots a couple of times, they want to shoot jump shots,” Davis said. “That’s what they did tonight.” Kentucky kept extending its lead by holding St. John’s to 32 percent shooting, and the fans got a few

final thrills when Doron Lamb threw an 18-foot alley-oop that Darius Miller slammed with one hand to make it 74-49 with 3:49 left. “It just kind of happened. I don’t know what was going through my mind right there,” Miller said. “I haven’t seen the video yet. I’ll have to watch it when I get back home.” Vargas tied, then broke the school record for blocks in a 48-second span to surpass the mark set against Morehead State on Nov. 20, 1997. Lamb finished with 16 points as Kentucky turns its attention to the Tar Heels. “If we play like tonight? I’d be a very sad coach after the game,” said Calipari, who is 37-0 at home with Kentucky but continues to pick apart the lack of offensive rhythm and the mental lapses his team has made so far.

St. John’s was without coach Steve Lavin, who is recovering from prostate cancer surgery and has missed the Red Storm’s last three games. Assistant coach Mike Dunlap, who won two NCAA titles with Division II Metro State, paced up and down in the white tennis shoes Lavin and his staff wear. “The disappointing part for us were the turnovers 19,” Dunlap said. “When you on the road, you’ve got to take better care of the ball and that put a lot of pressure on our defense as far as easy baskets go.” His team played well early, relying on Achiuwa and Harkless on both ends and each had 10 rebounds. The Wildcats committed five early turnovers and started 2 of 11 from the field to trail 5-4 before a 120 run with Davis heavily involved on both ends of the floor.

for Troy in the past,” Morgan said. “They know what it’s all about.” And since 2007, the Trojan girls have been the GWOC North Division champion, while the boys have been the runners-up to Butler. With the balance and talent the team has this season, they’re looking to both claim titles — but the first step is Saturday’s Mason Invitational. “One team, one goal — that’s our slogan this year,” Morgan said. “Mason is going to be a big test for us, though. It will let us know where we’re at now and where we need to improve.”

Roundup ■ CONTINUED FROM 15 at Bradford to open Cross County Conference play. “With the delayed schedule, our mentality was to clean some things up on offense and defense,” Miami East coach Preston Elifritz said. “I thought we executed well.” One area the Vikings (10, 1-0 CCC) really cleaned up was on the glass. Miami East won the rebounding battle 42-19, thanks in large part to double-doubles by both Trina and Ashley Current. Trina Current had a game-high 22 points and 14 rebounds, and Ashley Current added 13 points and 11 rebounds. Madison Linn scored 16 points, Angie Mack added nine and Emily Kindell and Abby Cash each scored seven. “We did the things we wanted to,” Elifritz said. “We got to the line, we were aggressive. I wasn’t happy giving up 41 points. It was kind of a helter-skelter second half.” Alisha Patty and Brooke Dunlevy each had nine points to pace the Railroaders. Miami East faces Butler Saturday.

Milton-Union 36, Northridge 23 DAYTON — MiltonUnion used an impressive defensive performance in the second half Thursday to claim its first victory of the defeating season, Northridge 36-23. The Bulldogs (1-2) trailed 15-14 at the half, but they only allowed four points in the third and fourth quarters and used a 15-4 third to pull away for good. Ashleigh Bishop and Cate Busse led the way in the post. Bishop scored a game-high 13 points and Busse added eight. Milton-Union faces Twin Valley South Tuesday.

They lead with their actions in the room.” Also back is senior Steve Gohrband at 152 or 160. “He’s completely changed his physical appearance since he was a freshman,” Curnes said. “His body type now shows the kind of work he’s put in.” The Trojans also have a few freshmen on the squad that are already making an impact — Brandon Lee and Trenton Wood in the middle weights and Cam Kouflin in the upper weights. “Brandon beat a returner for the spot in wrestleoffs,” Curnes said. “He’s a kid to watch for. He’s athletic, he’s explosive, he’s in great shape and he’s very coachable. Cam has been in the sport for a long time, and Trenton wrestles all year long and has plenty of experience for a freshman.” A host of sophomores — Ryan Simon, Mason Perkins, Alex Dalton and Andrew Kostecka — will also be names to watch for during the season. “We don’t have a lot of inexperienced young guys. We’re rich in young guys with experience,” Curnes said. “Our goal is to see them grow every day. We’re not looking at long-term goals like winning the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division. We have small goals with bigger goals in mind.” Which is a good recipe for anyone.

It’s fun when you’re playing well. We’re going to try to PERSONAL SERVICE-you deserve it! keep this up.” Andee Welbaum led the way with a game-high 19 points, Aryn Doseck added

Lindsey Spearman was outstanding for the Cavs, pouring in 23 points. Kandis Sargeant added 14, including 6 for 8 from the line. Paxton Hatcher pulled down 12 rebounds and Sargeant nine to lead the Cavs to a 3424 advantage on the boards.

■ CONTINUED FROM 15 we were immediately able to get into the instruction.” And that added focus will only help the Trojans in the long run. “The new kids we have are picking things up quick. They’re like sponges,” Curnes said. “We’ve been able to move through instruction rapidly, so now we can work more on skill sets individually.” And with the individuals Troy has, that’s a dangerous formula for the opposition. Back are senior Ryne Rich at heavyweight and junior Brandon Stradling in the lower weights — both of which were district qualifiers a season ago. Also back are two wrestlers that the team voted on to be captains, senior Tyler Sparks at 120 or 126 and sophomore Kevin McGraw in the upper-mid weights. “Kevin is looking to be an anchor for us. He was voted a team captain, and he put in work all summer long,” Curnes said. “A lot of guys will be looking to him to lead the way. I want to see how he responds. Tyler has been a worker for us and was also voted captain. “Brandon worked all summer long, and I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do. Ryne was a district qualifier last year and is looking to equal or better that. Those two are leaders in the room whether they’re captains or not.
