Incumbents dominate vote Rob Scott wins First Ward seat by 43 votes over David Brown By BILL DUFFIELD Times Editor Three of the four seats that were open on Kettering’s city council were challenged — and what a challenge it was. The Ward 1 seat, previously held by the retired Keith Thompson, was a three-man race between David Brown, Rob Scott and Nolan Thomas in the November 8 election. Scott garnered 1,224 votes in the unofficial totals released by the Montgomery County Board of Elections, just 43 votes more than Brown’s 1,181. Thomas finished third with

1,089 votes. Scott stated the fact that there was no incumbent in the race made for a hard fought campaign. “That made it very tight,” the councilmanelect stated. “All three of us worked very hard. It was by no means a slam dunk (victory). I think the eight-point plan I brought up to the voters and on my website was the difference. “I laid it out, all the things I’d like to do on council. I don’t think the other two candidates had as precise a plan.” Scott said that some of the ideas in his See VOTE, page 3

Alter reaches volleyball Final Four By BILL DUFFIELD Times editor

The Alter Lady Knight volleyball team has earned its fourth trip to the state Final Four for the fourth time in the last six seasons by winning the regional title this past weekend with a win over GGCL foe, C-J. Alter, 28-9 on the season, returns to the state tournament for the sixth time since

2002, winning three state championships (2006, 2003 and 2002) and reaching the finals once (2008). Last season, the Knights fell in the state semifinals to Mentor Lake Catholic. Madison, 26-2, won the district tournament by defeating Norwalk in five games. The Rams then downed Parma Padua Franciscan in the regional semifinals to earn a spot in the championship game against

Columbus St. Francis DeSales, a match Madison took by a 3-1 count. Alter’s path to the state semifinals started with a win over Franklin in three straight, followed by wins over Monroe and Springfield Shawnee to claim the district title. In the regional semis, the Knights defeated Wyoming in a highly competitive, five-set match to set up the whitewashing of C-J in the championship game.

Optimists name Educator of the Year The Kettering Noon Optimist Club has named T. J. Armstrong as the Educator of the Year. Growing up in a family where education was profound, Armstrong chose to pursue a career that would make a difference, that career was becoming a teacher. Armstrong graduated from Fairmont High School and Miami University with hopes and dreams of acquiring a teaching job in a middle school, teaching social studies to adolescents. He certainly had the patience for that population and would have been an incredible asset to any school district that hired him.

Fortunately for his current employer, timing was off as he arrived on the public school scene in Ohio the year that most school districts were tightening their belts and not hiring new teachers. In December 2003, Armstrong applied for the GED teaching position with the Kettering Adult Basic Literacy Education program. He interviewed with Cindy Smith and Katie Miller at the school with Smith relating of thinking “oh jeez…how is he going to relate to a rough, disillusioned population of students who’ve failed in school, have a See AWARD, page 3

Oakwood City, Kettering Schools renewal levies pass easily By BILL DUFFIELD Times Editor The Oakwood City’s 2.72 mill renewal levy passed easily, drawing 2,575 votes to just 889 for those against the levy. Oakwood mayor Bill Duncan said that the passage was not a surprise. “Maybe the margin of win was,” Duncan said. “I don’t think we were expecting it to pass by that much. “But Oakwood has only had one levy fail in a long, long time, and that was a library levy that was passed six months later.” Kettering’s Board of Education also saw voters pass its 0.6 mill renewal levy by a wide margin. The levy drew 11,188 “yes” votes, 60.03 percent, while just 7,450 voted “no”, 39.97 percent.

I have never served before. “I am looking forward to meeting with the other council members and then diving into the issues I want to tackle.” The second ward had incumbent Joe Wanamaker holding a 10 percentage point lead over challenger Mike Brandt with 33.3 percent of the precincts counted while, in Ward 4, incumbent Bruce Duke held a 54-46 percent lead over Lisa E. Crosley. Kettering’s third ward was an unopposed race with Tony Klepacz returning for another term on City Council. The City of Oakwood, meanwhile, had three up for election — and three incumbents there to fill them as Stanley Castleman, Steve Byington and Mayor Bill Duncan running as the only candidates. The Kettering Board of Education race had four contestants for two seats. Incumbent James S. Trent was topping the race with 72.1 percent of the precincts reporting, collecting 33.28 percent of the vote, while incumbent Lori Simms was second with 24.13 percent of the vote. Challengers Frank Spolrich and Jim Ambrose were at 21.31 percent and 21.28 percent respectively. Oakwood City School’s Board of Education had two seats open and just two candidates running.

Members of the Parker-Patterson Co-Op class of 1948 gathered for their 63rd Class Reunion at the Marian’s Piazza at Shroyer and Patterson. Organizer Ginny Brown said the event is special and always draws a good crowd of classmates. The classmembers are looking forward to their 64th reunion next year.

To wrap up “the Breathe Journey”, the troop started planning what they were capable of doing in the community. The girls came up with planting trees. They decided that they should give back to a huge part of their childhood; their elementary schools. The girls were split from two schools, so they decided to give back to both schools; Southdale and Orchard Park. In the midst of planning their “tree project”, another opportunity came up for the girls. Every spring, the Girl Scout Service Unit plans a camp out. The girls saw this as a chance to expand their project. That winter, they started researching what kind of flowers they should plant at Camp Butter Worth. Four of the six girls attended that spring camp out and planted their perennial memorial garden (they planted it around a bench that was dedicated to a girl scout that had died). The following 2011 summer, the other two girls that could not attend the camp out planted an additional memorial garden in front of the same building. As summer 2011 ended, the troop cracked down on planning

Will they take him seriously?” Little did the school know the talent that Armstrong would bring to this job in working with this population of students. The Optimists’ discription of Armstrong states “He has been diligent in retaining students that had in the past not been retainable, as well as supporting them through to their goal of getting their GED and in some cases going on to college. Others have been able to get jobs in cases where they were unemployable prior to this teachers’ class. He has shared in their successes and attended their many graduation ceremonies to show his support of their efforts and accomplishments.” When Kettering began a collaborative program with Sinclair, under the Federal initiative, Shifting Gears, which allowed ABLE to provide instruction in the lowest of the developmental

their original project, the tree planting. After several e-mails, phone calls and meetings, the girls wrapped the details up and prepared a presentation for the schools explaining why they were planting trees at the schools. As a whole, at the end of their “Silver Award”, each girl in troop 31126 has a total of 50 hours invested in planning, researching, coordinating, and planting. Girl Scouts have already had a huge impact on the world, and these girls are continuing that trend. On Monday, the troop held the first of two presentations the girls will be doing for the Silver Award. The first presentation was held at Orchard Park Elementary in Kettering, where a beautiful tree was planted. During the event, Kettering mayor Don Patterson read winning poems submitted by the Elementary students. Orchard Park principal Kari Toops and Girl Scout Leaders Carla Waid and Pattie McCroson were on hand to lend support on this special day for Girl Scouts Amanda Cunningham, Sydney Johnson, Sarah List, Maggie McCroson, Mary Smith and Megan Waid.

classes, it was only natural to send the teacher that had shown great success with the most difficult students, Armstrong’s job expanded. “Now eight years after this teacher was hired,” the narrative continued, “his job has expanded again, as he has been named Assistant Coordinator of the Kettering ABLE program and Coordinator of the H.O.S.T. Program through Miami Valley Career Technical Center. He still maintains his presence in the classroom, as student contact is his greatest joy on this job. But with his new position, he will be able to affect change in the world of adult literacy, as we hear he has been labeled by the Regional State ABLE Consultant as the ‘Go To Guy for GED Instruction’. (Armstrong) continues to find innovative ways to retain and teach the population he sees, providing them with a pathway for some success in their lives. Whether the end goal is passing the G.E.D., going to college, or getting a job, this teacher has been the mentor, the guide, the parent, the brother, the friend and the teacher that helps his students experience success, maybe for the first time in their lives.”

Girl Scout Troop 31126, which includes Van Buren Middle School students Amanda Cunningham, Sydney Johnson, Sarah List, Maggie McCroson, Mary Smith and Megan Waid, have been working on their “Silver Award” project since the summer of 2010. A Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest level award a Cadette Girl Scout can achieve. The girls are ages 13 and 14. The girls started out by choosing a topic to focus on. Inspired by their sixth grade science teachers, they chose to create awareness in the community about becoming greener. To begin, the girls did a mini project called “The Breathe Journey”. This is how the troop learned more about the environment and how to stay green. This project included activities such as taking a walk and noticing different sounds, smells or objects. The girls would journal about what they experienced. Other activities included thinking of different transportation that was more “eco friendly”, journaling about what they could do around the house to save energy, and talking about what they could do in the community to help the Earth.

The Alter Lady Knights didn’t have an easy road through the regional tournament, but after defeating the Chaminade-Julienne Lady Eagles in three sets 25-22, 2518, and 25-13 on Saturday, the Knights are headed back to the state tournament for the second consecutive year and the sixth time in the past 10 seasons. CJ put up a fight in the first set with the two teams tied at 21-21. However, Alter reeled off four of the next five points to take the game and establish an early 1-0 lead. CJ took the advantage early in the second set but the Knights slowly took command before winning 25-18 and using that momentum to carry them to a convincing win in the third set to win the match. Despite the familiarity of the fellow Girls Greater Catholic League foes in CJ, that match was probably considered a breeze compared to the semifinal match on Thursday night against the top-ranked and undefeated Wyoming Cowboys. Wyoming came into the match having lost just one set the entire year and looked to be a formidable opponent for the Knights and did not disappoint. In the end, Alter outlasted the Cowboys in five sets 2523, 28-30, 17-25, 25-18, 15-11 in a match that lasted nearly two hours and had many dramatic moments. “That was pretty exciting, wasn’t it?” said Alter head coach Tina Jasinowski. “We played them in camp this summer and scouted them last week and they didn’t play like that. I didn’t think they would be this strong, but this match was up, down, up, down and the epitome of a volleyball game.” In the first set alone there were 10 ties and seven lead changes yet the Knights appeared to be gaining momentum and command after breaking out to a 17-12 lead thanks to an ace by Mary Rodehaver and kills by Sara Crotty, Megan Courtney, Maddie Bazelak, and Kristen Kaiser that forced a Wyoming timout. The Cowboys regrouped after the break and rattled off five straight points to tie the game and the two teams battled the rest of the way with five ties and three lead changes, with the last tie at 23-23.

Alter’s Maddie Bazelak (22), Mary Rodehaver (6) and Sara Crotty (12) helped slow Wyoming’s outside hitters during Thursday night’s regional semifinal victory. A misplay by Wyoming gave the Knights a 24-23 lead and Alter was finally able to take the game after a long rally when Courtney got the final point to give Alter a 1-0 lead. Set two was equally wild with 21 ties and 12 lead changes as neither team led by more than three points. The Knights had a chance to win in regulation after scoring two consecutive points to take a 24-23 lead but the Cowboys wouldn’t go away. Alter staved off a loss three times when the Cowboys had the lead at 26-25, 27-26, and 28-27 but finally succumbed 30-28 to tie the match at a game each. The loss seemed to rattle the Knights as they fell behind early in set three and, once given control, Wyoming took advantage for a 25-17 win and, more importantly, a 2-1 lead in the match. “We were pretty low after that third game,” said Jasinowski. “We were talking to each other and not really playing together and we talked a lot about that

and reminded them that they were inspired by one another and they needed to get it together. We tightened up our communication and things got better.” Alter flipped the tables in the fourth set, however and after eight ties and five lead changes that saw the game knotted at 14-14 they pulled away for a convincing 25-18 win with Bazelak, Crotty and an ace by Kelsey McGraw scoring the last three point of the game to tie the match at 2-2 heading into the final game. The Knights fell behind early in the final set, which goes to just 15 points, but despite trailing 7-3 did not panic. Jasinowski called a timeout and Alter slowly chipped away at the lead to finally tie the game at 10-10. Alter took their first lead at 11-10 and the Cowboys tied the game one last time at 1111 but then the Knights sensed a victory and served up three straight sets to Courtney who recorded the kills before Kaiser scored the game and match clincher to propel the Knights to a

15-11 win and a date with CJ in the regional final. “Our seniors really contributed today in leading us,” said Jasinowski. “In the crunch we really got good performances from Megan (Courtney) and Kristen (Kaiser) who stepped up and played all around the court. Sara Crotty played her best match of the season after being injured twice in the first three weeks of the season, and Maddie Bazelak didn’t play like a freshman today.” The Lady Knights will play Mansfield Madison in the second Division II state semifinal at 6 p.m. on Thursday at the Ervin J. Nutter Center on the campus of Wright State University. Mansfield Madison is making their fifth trip to the state tournament where they lost in last year’s semifinal game. If Alter wins on Thursday, they will play the winner of Columbus Bishop Hartley/Cleveland Heights Beaumont on Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Nutter Center for the state title.

Albers paces Alter at state meet By DARRELL WACKER Contributing writer

Success in running sports seems to be a given for the Alter Lady Knights, and this year’s success at the Ohio High School Athletic Association’s state cross country meet is no exception. The Knights placed third overall with 101 points led by a fifth place finish by Olivia Albers. The meet was held at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio for the first time, but the new course didn’t seem to faze the Knights. In fact, it may have favored them. “Today was really positive and our whole team was really excited to be here,” said Albers. “It is a new course and we were a little scared about it but we ran it yesterday and I realized this course is made for me. I wasn’t a huge fan of Scioto Downs so I was pleased. This course is a little flatter and more interesting.” Albers placed fifth overall with a time of 18:31.85. She was followed by Alex Groene (19:12.42), Kyly Borton (19:47.29), Kristen Petrosky (19:55.13), Grace Untener (20:31.68), Austin Borton (20:32.30), and Emma Schuermann (20:52.93). Albers continued her successful running career at Alter that has seen her earn numerous awards on the state level in track, but this was her first podium spot in cross country. “I changed my mind set when it comes to cross country this year,” said Albers. “I had never really been in it before but I came in this year I had some goals set in

If you had told me four years ago that I would be standing here I would have laughed in your face, so that makes me happy.” “This season was pretty exciting,” said Alter coach John Davalos. “We have had a lot of good things happen on the girl’s side while running against all Division I schools to get ready for the competition we see at state. Olivia has had a nice season with five first place finishes

at meets we have been at. The team as a whole has had a great year. My dining room table is full of first place trophies that the team has earned. “The team has worked really hard and done everything I have asked them to do. We run rain or shine and they have done a very good job and I’m very proud of them.” The Knights will look to build on the example set by Albers both this spring in the track and field season and next year in cross coun-

try. According to Davalos, the future of the program is bright. “What I like about Olivia is her leadership,” he said. “She doesn’t complain, she does what we need to do, and I have pushed her a little harder and have asked a little more of her especially at running events but the other team members like to step up right next to her. We have a couple of freshmen that are outstanding in Kristen Petrosky and Kyly Borton and this team is very family-centric.”

Knights stunned in regional quarterfinals By DARRELL WACKER Contributing writer After finishing the regular season with an unblemished record, the Alter Knights found themselves in an unenviable position entering the Division II, Region 12 playoffs. Alter, steeped in playoff tradition and a pair of state championships, was seeded fifth in a loaded region full of undefeated and one loss teams and would face a hungry Thurgood Marshall team looking to be the first Dayton city school to win a playoff game in over a decade. Add to that the Knights would have to do it for most of the evening without leading rusher Joe Penno, who was lost early in the contest to injury. In the end, the game came down to a gutsy decision by the Rams to go for a twopoint conversion late in the contest and their ability to stop the Knights defensively with the game on the line as Thurgood Marshall stunned the Knights 35-27 at Welcome Stadium. The loss ended Alter’s season at 10-1 and was the first time the Knights were knocked out in the first round of the playoffs in many years. Alter was put on notice early that the Rams had came to play. Their team speed was evident in the first period as running back Tavonn Crisp burst up the middle for a 32-yard touchdown with 8:26 to play in the first quarter. The Rams’ extra point was no good, but that play would play big later in the game. The Knights responded with a drive of their own aided by a 22 yard run around the right end by Malik Zaire and a 15 yard gain down to the 12-yard line by Tyler Hohl, but Alter’s drive stalled at the 10 and the Knights were forced to

Thurgood Marshall mishandled the subsequent Knight kickoff and after Alter’s John Manfreda gathered the loose ball at the Ram 36-yard line, the Knights took advantage. Alter’s methodical ground attack pounded away at the Thurgood Marshall defense and a pair of runs by Tommy Ruff moved the Knights down to the 12-yard line. Zaire picked up a first down at the Thurgood Marshall 2-yard line, and after a penalty moved the Knights back to the six, Hohl went around the right end and snuck just inside the pylon for a 6-yard touchdown run at the 10:41 mark

of the second quarter. DiMario hit the extra point, and Alter held a 10-6 advantage. Thurgood Marshall responded less than four minutes later with a 34-yard touchdown run up the middle to take a 13-10 lead. After the score, the Knights fumbled on the second play of their next drive and Crisp and the Rams were ready to take advantage of the mistake. On their second play, Crisp scored from 17 yards out and the Rams held a 2010 lead with 4:51 left in the first half. The playoff tested Knights didn’t panic, however, and after a kickoff return by Danny Smith to the 25-yard line, the Knights put together a 14 play drive that was

jump started by a 15-yard run by Ruff out to the 40. A 9yard gain by Zaire and a 6yard run by Mitchell Burnette got the Knights down to the Ram 11 with 49 seconds left, and Alter called time. Alter couldn’t get closer than the eight, though, and the Knights were forced to settle for a 25-yard field goal by DiMario as the half closed with the Rams holding a 20-13 lead. The second half began with Danny Smith returning the Ram kickoff 23 yards to the Alter 39-yard line, and the Knights were in business. Tommy Ruff moved the Knights into Ram territory with a pair of runs and Hohl picked up a first down on a 12-yard gain down to the 27.

Two plays later, Zaire went up the middle for a 26-yard touchdown and the Knights tied the score at 20-20 after DiMario made the extra point. The teams exchanged punts, but Alter took over from the Rams with less than a minute left in the third period near midfield. Aided by a personal foul penalty on Thurgood Marshall, Alter moved deep into Ram territory. On second down, Burnette gained 16 yards to get inside the 1yard line, and on first and goal, Hohl scored to give Alter a 27-20 lead with 8:56 to play. Thurgood Marshall then took a page from the Alter playbook and constructed their own long drive after taking over at the 30-yard line. 13 plays later, Crisp scored his third touchdown of the game from 10 yards out to pull the Rams within 27-26. Following a timeout, the Rams elected to go for two points, and again Crisp got the call and he answered with a run around the left end for two points to give the Rams a 28-27 lead with 3:33 to play. Alter had two chances to gain a pair of yards near midfield to keep their drive alive, but the Knights came up a yard short and turned the ball over on downs with 2:01 left and it appeared they would not touch the ball again given they had just one timeout left. The Rams gave the Knights a chance, however, as Crisp scored two plays later with 1:18 left on the clock to take a 35-27 lead. The Knights took over at their won 24-yard line and threw a pair of incomplete passes, but the Knights ran out of chances on third down as Zaire was forced to scramble and was hit as he threw a pass which resulted in an interception by the Rams to end the contest.

Oakwood cross country competes at state By DARRELL WACKER Contributing writer

The Oakwood boys cross country team enjoyed much success at the Ohio High School Athletic Association state cross country meet this past Saturday at National Trail Raceway in Hebron. The Lumberjacks finished 11th overall with 244 points. Leading the way for the Jacks was Jack Randall who finished

leader and Katherine Anderson was a leader on the girl’s team,” said Ammer. “Both excelled, were competitive, and were real models and team leaders.” The state appearance is the second one in recent past and something Oakwood hopes to build on.

in 51st place with a time of 17:02.51 in the 3.1 mile race that snaked over the grounds of the raceway and finished on the drag strip’s straightaway lined with roaring fans on both sides. Randall was followed by Herbert Sizek (17:15.49), Ben Gallatin (17:26.85), Steven Hix (17:33.58), Andrew Redden (17:41.83), Tommy Lane (17:53.59) and Alec Snead (18:24.08).

“Hopefully we are at the stage where we can go to state year in and year out,” said Ammer. “We have talked to the kids about building tradition and a lasting legacy and we have been heading that way the past couple of years. Now we hope to maintain that level and hopefully build on it.”

Oakwood’s Herbert Sizek (top left) and Ben Gallatin (top right) helped lead the boys at state while Katherine Anderson (left) joined Erin Kennedy to lead the girls on Saturday. “Both teams worked hard and exceeded their goals and our expectations.” The boy’s team won the Southwestern Buckeye League title and were also crowned as district champions while the girls were the district runners-up. “Jack Randall really emerged as a team

While not qualifying as a team, two Oakwood girls also qualified as individuals. Erin Kennedy placed 24th in a time of 19:23.52 while Katherine Anderson placed 31st in 19:38.32. “It was a really great season for both the boys and the girls,” said Oakwood head coach Bryan Ammer.
