Roasted Butternut Squash with ghostly Asparagus

Ingredients – “Please, don’t measure; it ruins the fun.” Butternut squash, peeled and cubed Olive oil Brown sugar Cinnamon Cayenne pepper Parsley Salt & pepper If you only serve up one vegetable in October, it better be butternut squash. If you’ve never prepared it before, get ready for a challenge. The tough skin is difficult to peel, and the process of slicing the squash and scooping out its seeds is time consuming. But there’s a reason why you put in the time. Once you’ve wrestled with your squash, pour the cubed vegetables into a large baking pan and drizzle with...

Last year, highest number of sexual assaults reported at Miami

Last year, 25 people reported being sexually assaulted at Miami University — the most to come forward since the university started releasing data on sexual assault in 2001. That figure is more than double the number of reports from 2015. Those figures, though, don’t represent the number of assaults which actually occurred in 2016. Reporting numbers are classified by the year in which an assault was reported, not when it happened. Of last year’s 25 reports, 11 incidents happened in 2016, and six occurred in 2015. The remaining assaults happened in previous years, with one report going as far...

Former MUPD officer convicted for sexual imposition, abduction

Former Miami University police sergeant Dustin Young was found guilty of gross sexual imposition and abduction after groping a female co-worker and trying to coerce her to have sex with him. Judge Michael A. Oster declared Young not guilty of two other felony charges — one count of kidnapping and a second count of abduction — on Friday, Oct. 13. Young declined to be tried by a jury, opting for a bench trial. Judge Oster heard testimonies in court on Tuesday and Wednesday last week, including testimony from the alleged victim, said Kelly Heile, assistant prosecutor for Butler County. The 36-year-old former officer worked at the university for 15 years before he was forced to resign after a university investigation found he was likely guilty of sexually harassing a female dispatcher. Young was first put on administrative leave with pay Nov. 22 after a co-worker filed a complaint against him. In a Dec. 23 memo from Miami’s Office of Equity and Equal Opportunity (OEEO), director Kenya D. Ash wrote that the OEEO found Young had “more likely than not” violated the university’s policies surrounding sexual harassment. According to the memo, MUPD chief John McCandless told OEEO that a female dispatcher reported Young had assaulted her three times. In a Nov. 30 interview with OEEO, the alleged victim described how Young had groped and sexually harrassed her while at work. She...
