Grand jury indicts local man for abduction, rape By Becky Brooks Managin Editor

SANDUSKY - Brian Jury, 38, 10701 Strecker Road, Bellevue, was indicted this week on multiple felony counts by the Erie County Grand Jury for attempted murder, rape and kidnapping of a Lorain area woman. On Friday, a $350,000 bond was filed in Erie County Common Pleas Court for Jury, record show. An indictment was filed Thursday. Jury is charged with attempted

murder, multiple counts of rape, and kidnapping, all first degree felonies and a count of felonious assault, according to court records. Jury continues to be held in the Lorain County Jail where is he being held on gun charges in that city. Erie County has issued a warrant for his arrest based on this week’s indictment. On Friday, Erie County S h e r i f f ’s Detective Sergeant Dennis Papineau said the department still has

an active investigation into this case. “We don’t have a whole lot to do,” he said Friday. On Nov. 1, a passerby on Strecker Road north of Bellevue saw a naked woman - whose hands and feet were bound with ties - along the country road. An off-duty deputy, Steven Hammersmith, also came by the same spot and the sheriff ’s office was called. The victim reported the suspect offered her a ride in Lorain. She recognized him and accept-

ed but then he abducted her at gunpoint, a deputy previously reported. She was brought to a camper on a Strecker Road property and repeatedly raped. Papineau said the department has searched Jury’s approximate 8-acre property on Strecker Road with the assistance of the FBI evidence recovery team using Sandy Lesko, who is a certified K-9 cadaver dog handler. The sergeant said nothing of significance was located in that search.

He also added that the sheriff ’s office is working closely with the Lorain City Police. The defendant was arrested in Lorain after an investigation into the rape. Papineau also stated the victim has been very strong and helpful in the investigation. Lorain Police also have charges filed on Jury who had two weapons in his possession at the time of his arrest that same day. Papineau said a background check showed that Jury has no other criminal record.

The Bellevue City Schools simulated an emergency situation at each of the buildings this week. In conjunction with the drill, staff practiced a mini parent reunification at the elementary and the middle school. A small number of parents pretended to “reunite” with students. This practice helped Bellevue City Schools and local law enforcement to take a critical look at the procedures in place for parent reunification at the schools.In the case of a true emergency, parents would be notified via school messenger and possibly other resources such as Twitter and the district website about the details of the reunification.

Smith sentenced to 9 years in April crow bar attack Two more defendants yet to face trail on multiple counts By Becky Brooks Managin Editor

NORWALK - On Thursday, Tyler G. Smith, 19, 154 Hamilton St., Bellevue, was sentenced to nine years in state prison for his attack with a crow bar against Austin Thorton in Willard on April 22. Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler said Friday that Smith was still being held in the Huron County Jail. Smith entered a guilty plea in October to a single count of first-degree attempted murder for the attack on Thorton, a St. Paris 19-year-old in Peru Township. Leffler said he asked the judge for the full 11-year sentence for Smith, who was originally indicted on five counts in May. On Wednesday, Smith appeared for sentencing in Huron County Common Pleas Court. The father of Austin Thorton, the victim in the April attack, attended and spoke for his son. “He indicated there was continuing problems the young man

had,” the prosecutor stated. Leffler also stated that it was Smith who used the crow bar to attack Thorton following a conflict concerning an ex-girlfriend. “He is the one who hit the guy in the head,” Leffler added. “We think (Thorton) was hit in the ribs and one in the temple.” Leffler said one of the witnesses referred to the attack as a shattering noise. Two other defendants were indicted in the attack. Connor Holbrook, 19, 840 Kilbourne St., was indicted for conspiracy to commit aggravated murder or murder, a first degree felony; two counts - second degree felonies of felonious assault; obstructing justice, a third degree felony; and tampering with evidence, a third degree felony. The night of the attack, Thorton was take to Willard Mercy Hospital and flown by Life Flight to St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo. He was later transferred to a rehabilitation facility.

This Nov. 2, 2009 file photo shows a Thanksgiving turkey. The average Turkey Day dinner will cost $49.04, or just 44 cents less in 2013 than it did in 2012.

The cost of turkey and all the fixin’s? Mostly unchanged J.M. HIRSCH AP Food Editor

Here’s another reason to be thankful this holiday season — the cost of putting Thanksgiving dinner on the table is down slightly from last year. But don’t bank on those savings for any big Black Friday splurges. The average Turkey Day dinner will cost $49.04, or just 44 cents less this year than it did in 2012. And while every

penny counts, if you need to do any traveling to belly up to the big meal, increases in airline and train tickets mean that 44 cents won’t get you very far. The good news is that after some steep price hikes during the economic downturn about five years ago, food prices have remained mostly stable this year. It’s a welcome change from 2011, when the cost of Thanksgiving dinner jumped $5.73, up from See TURKEY | 8

Funeral held for boy who got early Christmas wish PORT CLINTON, Ohio (AP) — An overflow crowd has turned out for a funeral Mass for a northern Ohio boy whose city put up lights and sang carols to fulfill his wish for an early Christmas. The crowd at a Port Clinton church spilled over into an adjacent gymnasium Friday to bid farewell to 13-year-old Devin Kohlman. Devin, who had brain cancer, died Monday. He returned home after

doctors said he didn’t have long to live, and his community got to work fulfilling Devin’s wish of being home for his favorite holiday. The city put up a Christmas tree, and Santa showed up on a motorcycle. Shaved ice mimicked drifting snow outside Devin’s window. Neighbors and strangers praised the boy and his town as inspirational in messages left in an online guestbook after his death.

Stephen Gibson, 9, sits with his mother at their home Monday in Cleveland on Monday. Stephen’s special green chair with wheels that light up was swiped from the back of the family’s minivan in Cleveland last weekend. It apparently had been used by thieves to cart away $200 worth of food stolen from a refrigerator and freezer in their garage. It turned up at a district police station Thursday night. Barbara Gibson said the chair is “a little rickety” and needs some repairs, but they are thrilled to have it back. Stephen uses it because he has cerebral palsy and scoliosis.

Stolen wheelchair returned to Ohio boy with special needs CLEVELAND (AP) — A wheelchair stolen from a 9-year-old special needs boy in Cleveland has been quietly returned to a police station, the child’s mother said. “It’s a happy ending,” Stephen Gibson’s mother, Barbara, told the Northeast Ohio Media Group (http://bit.ly/189N3ZT ). “He got his wheelchair back.” Stephen’s special green chair with wheels that light up was swiped from the back of the family’s minivan in Cleveland last

weekend. It apparently had been used by thieves to cart away $200 worth of food stolen from a refrigerator and freezer in their garage. It turned up at a district police station Thursday night. Barbara Gibson said the chair is “a little rickety” and needs some repairs, but they are thrilled to have it back. Stephen uses it because he has cerebral palsy and scoliosis. “Whoever had it must have figured it was a hot commodity and

they needed to return it,” she said. The theft had garnered multiple offers of help from around the country. Companies had offered to provide Stephen with a new wheelchair for free, and former American Chopper paint artist Robert “Nub” Collard offered to customize one. Funds raised for the Gibsons will go toward extensive home remodeling when Stephen’s scoliosis will require a motorized wheelchair in the coming months.

Judge blocks Ohio law limiting signature gatherers JULIE CARR SMYTH AP Statehouse Correspondent

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A federal judge has temporarily blocked enforcement of an Ohio law barring out-ofstate residents from circulating petitions needed to place an issue or candidate on the ballot. U.S. District Court Judge Michael Watson said in ruling this week that he could identify no harm that would come to the state from allowing nonresidents to gather

signatures. The injunction comes in a dual challenge by the Libertarian Party of Ohio and a group that includes Citizens in Charge, a ballot access organization, and backers of two active ballot campaigns. The law’s opponents argue Ohio’s signature-gathering rules infringe on their First Amendment right to free political speech by limiting their choice in signature gatherers. The state counters that the law places only a mini-

mal burden on the process and serves to protect against fraud. The law was written to exclude petitions for U.S. president after an earlier challenge by 2008 presidential candidate Ralph Nader — but Watson said that didn’t matter. Quoting precedent, the

judge wrote that “laws prohibiting nonresidents from acting as petition circulators significantly burden political speech because they substantially reduce the number of potential circulators and are therefore subject to strict scrutiny.”

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio saw a big jump in traffic fatalities last year, according to newly released federal statistics, but officials say the numbers are coming back down in 2013. Ohio had one of the largest year-to-year jumps in fatalities in the nation in 2012, according to the numbers released Thursday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Ohio was among 37 states where the number of traffic fatalities rose last year, and only Texas saw a larger increase from 2011 to 2012. Officials in Ohio attribute the increase partly on unseasonably warm weather that got more motorcycles on the road earlier in the year, The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1e7rnP0 ) reported Friday. In all, 1,123 people died in Ohio wrecks last year — an increase of 106 from 2011. But numbers are back down this year. The patrol expects to break the 2011 record-low with fewer than 1,000 traffic deaths in 2013. As of Thursday, there have been 836 fatal crashes statewide. “We are making an impact,” said Staff Lt. Anne Ralston, the patrol spokeswoman. “We are making a difference. Things are getting better and safer in Ohio.” Nationwide, 33,561 people were killed in car crashes in 2012, an increase of 1,082. Ohio’s crashes accounted for about 10 percent of the nationwide increase.

About 72 percent of the increase nationwide in 2012 occurred during the first quarter of the year. Ralston said Ohio actually experienced a drop in traffic deaths during the second half of 2012. Motorcycle deaths increased in the U.S. for the third consecutive year. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration also announced it would develop plans before the end of the year to encourage automakers to incorporate aggressive safety features in more vehicles. Those include seatbelt interlocks that prevent vehicles from being driven before a seat belt is fastened, alcohol-detection systems and collision avoidance.

Neighbors Center plans holiday dinner, seeking reservations now Joanne Austin

Director, Four County Young-At-Heart Senior Center

Here we are in the middle of November already. I just knew that this month would fly like all the rest. Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away.

Area resident part of Human Trafficking Awareness Group ASHLAND — The following local resident is a member of the Human Trafficking Awareness Group at Ashland University: Desiree Boyer, of Monroeville, is a 2013 graduate of Monroeville High School. The Human Trafficking Awareness Group (HTAG) started out of

a spring break mission’s trip in 2008 through Ashland University’s Isaiah Project. As a team, they spent a week ministering to individuals in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. While there, mission’s base leaders shared their knowledge of human trafficking with the group. Over the last two years, HTAG

has raised awareness on human trafficking and supported a local shelter called Gracehaven House that works to restore victims in Ohio. Human trafficking is truly a massive criminal industry that can happen across the globe or across the street. This group focuses on bringing hope to victims

Cabrera beats out Trout for American League MVP BEN WALKER AP Baseball Writer

NEW YORK — All those who marvel at Miguel Cabrera can only wonder what he might’ve done this year if completely healthy. Even so, Cabrera was a huge hit in Motown. Despite being hobbled by all sorts of ailments, the Detroit Tigers slugger won his second straight American League Most Valuable Player award Thursday, once again beating Angels outfielder Mike Trout by a comfortable margin. A season after winning baseball’s first Triple Crown in 45 years, Cabrera came back to lead the majors in hitting at .348 and finish second with 44 home runs and 137 RBIs. “I think this year was tougher because of the injuries,” he said on a conference call from the Miami area. “It was the last two months. It was tough to play through it,” he said. The eight-time All-Star missed several games after the break because of a bad back, a sore left hip flexor, a strained lower abdomen, shin trouble and a groin tear. He recently had surgery to fix the tear and said he’ll be ready for spring training. Still, Cabrera got 23 of 30 first-place votes from members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. He became the first player to win consecutive AL MVPs since Frank Thomas for the Chicago White Sox in 1993 and 1994. Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen took the NL MVP by a surprisingly wide margin after leading a baseball

revival in Pittsburgh. McCutchen drew 28 of the 30 first-place votes to finish far ahead of Arizona first baseman Paul Goldschmidt and St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina. “I’m floating right now,” McCutchen said in Pittsburgh. “But I definitely didn’t expect it to be a landslide with those other guys — Goldschmidt and Molina. They were great candidates and I didn’t know what to expect.” McCutchen ranked among the NL leaders by hitting .317 with 21 home runs and 84 RBIs. He also scored 97 runs, stole 27 bases and had a .404 onbase percentage. Cabrera finished with 385 points, while Trout got five first-place votes and 282 points. The difference was 81 points last season, when Trout was AL Rookie of the Year. Cabrera took his third AL batting title in a row. He also drew a $1 million bonus for winning a second MVP during his current contract with the Tigers. No AL player has won three straight MVPs. Albert Pujols was the last repeat NL MVP winner in 2008 and 2009; Barry Bonds took four straight from 2001-04. The Tigers have virtually owned the major postseason awards during a three-year run of success. Justin Verlander was the MVP and Cy Young winner in 2011, Cabrera took the MVP last season and Detroit ace Max Scherzer won this year’s Cy Young Award on Wednesday. The 30-year-old third baseman from Venezuela also captured the AL MVP last year when he hit .330 with 44 homers and 139 RBIs.

Clyde Fliers fans packed BAF Stadium Friday night to see the second meeting between the Fliers and the Pirates. Earlier in the year it was the Pirates who came out on top, but Friday’s Division III second round playoff meeting went to the Fliers, with a 19-6 victory.

Busting at the seams Playoff game draws huge crowd as Clyde defeats Perkins, 19-6 Amber Hatten Gazette sports writer

It was a Sandusky Bay Conference (SBC) playoff rematch Friday night as the Clyde Fliers and Perkins Pirates met on First National Bank Field at BAF Stadium. In their first meeting in week 6 of the regular season Perkins came out on top defeating the Fliers, 34-14. Friday night the result was quite different, the Fliers managed to defeat the Pirates 19-6. The defense for the Fliers was firing on all cylinders as they managed four interceptions on the night, including the game ending interception by senior defensive back Blake Miller. The offense on the other hand struggled, only finding the end zone one time, the remainder of the Flier points came from the leg of kicker Austin Baker. For the game the Fliers were 7 of 17 passing for 130 yards and had 44 carries for 138 rushing yards.

Several Clyde defenders, including linebacker Jake Jenne (8) and Jordan Hummel (51) block a Perkins punt deep in their own territory. This set up one of three Clyde field goals, that have the Fliers a 19-6 win over the Pirates.

The offense for the Pirates were unable to get anything started with senior quarterback David Doster nursing a knee injury and unable to plant his foot. The Pirates were 3 of 23 passing for 37

yards and four interceptions and had 32 carries for 123 rushing yards. Perkins only points came in the fourth quarter on a rushing play by back-up quarterback sophomore Matt Schweinfurth. With this win the

Fans prepped for AFC Battle Royale

Broncos, Chiefs preparing for Sunday EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer

DENVER — The Kansas City Chiefs are the NFL’s worst undefeated team. Peyton Manning is the league’s most vulnerable 300-yards-a-game passer. It’s not often that so many doubts hover over teams and players who have been so good. Some of the questions will be resolved Sunday night when the Chiefs (9-0) play the Broncos (8-1) in an AFC West meeting between teams with a .944 winning percentage. The best combined record of two opponents this deep into the season since the NFL merger in 1970. “The NFL has a system in place to find out who’s the best,” said Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, who has fielded repeated questions about the softness of Kansas City’s schedule through nine games. “The speculation of nine weeks in, who’s the best team, for me, it’s kind of pointless. Who cares? I want to be the best team come February.” A win for Kansas City would go a long way toward that goal. The Chiefs, whose nine straight victories have come against teams with a combined .357 winning percentage, could take a two-game lead over the Broncos with an early edge in the tiebreaker and a rematch coming up Dec. 1 at home. If the Broncos win, they’ll move into a tie in the AFC West with the toughest stretch of their season, at New England and Kansas City. The buzz about Manning’s recordpace of 3,249 yards and 33 touchdowns this season has been replaced this week by concerns over his ankles. They have been bugging him for about a month now and got worse when a Chargers lineman dived at them during last week’s game. The Broncos must get ready to protect him as they will be facing the league’s top sacks defense; linebackers Jack Dempsey | AP Justin Houston and Tamba Hali have In this Sept. 29 photo, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning calls the count as running back combined for 20 of Kansas City’s 36 Knowshon Moreno listens, against the Philadelphia Eagles during a game in Denver. Moreno kept his start- sacks. The Chiefs also lead the league ing job this season because he’s best at protecting Manning. with a plus-15 turnover margin.

In a matchup between top offense and top defense, who usually wins? “Well, the NFL definitely made it harder for a really good defense in this league, but you have to play the game to find that out,” Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey said. Five things to look for Sunday in “The Game of the Year, Part I:” •An MRI showed no new damage to Manning’s ankle after last week and Manning has been saying all along he’ll play. Still, it’s hard to put a measure on the week-after-week toll of having players diving at his feet, let alone sacking and stripping him from the blind side, which has happened in the last three games. • The Chiefs’ defense has scored five touchdowns this season. The offense: four TDs over the last three games. The Broncos average 41.2 points a game. Even if the Kansas City defense keeps Manning and Co., in partial check, and even if the defense scores a few points itself, it figures there will be at least some pressure on Smith and the his offense to score. The Chiefs rank 26th on converting trips inside the 20 yard line into touchdowns •Temperatures are forecast to be in the 30’s for kickoff, which means Manning could very well don his coldweather glove for the first time this season. The last time he wore it in a meaningful situation, the Broncos lost to Baltimore in the playoffs in singledigit weather. The time before that, they beat Kansas City 38-3 in the 2012 regular-season finale. • The Broncos adjusted well with Jack Del Rio taking over for John Fox while Fox rests at home following heart surgery. This week, the glare of the distractions goes to Kansas City’s side, where receiver Dwayne Bowe was arrested last weekend during the team’s bye and charged with speeding and possession of marijuana. Hard to match the Broncos point for point without the man who has caught 33 passes for 369 yards, more than any Kansas City wideout.

Trainer to stars says any dog can learn new tricks SUE MANNING Associated Press

Trainer to stars says any dog can learn new tricks SUE MANNING, Associated Press LOS ANGELES (AP) — If it seems like your dog knows every trick in the book, try changing books. Babette Haggerty, veteran dog trainer to the stars, has packed 106 teach-them-yourself stunts into her new book, “The Best Dog Tricks on the Planet.” Pets that master the basic sit, stay and heel commands can learn to help around the house and even appear to read, pirouette or do the “Hokey Pokey,” she says, picking up party tricks to dazzle guests or special talents for TV and movie work. Teaching canines of the rich and famous is a trait she picked up from her legendary father. Haggerty, 45, of Oakland, N.J., figures she has trained 1,000 dogs over the years, many at her school, Babette Haggerty’s School for Dogs. She’s got a ways to go to catch dad Arthur

“Captain” Haggerty, who died in 2006 at age 74. He trained an estimated 100,000 dogs. The elder Haggerty handled dogs or appeared as an extra in more than 150 films and about 450 commercials. He also pioneered “Stupid Pet Tricks” on David Letterman’s late-night show and appeared on it 26 times. His 1977 book “Dog Tricks” is still selling well, and many credit him with turning dog training into an honorable profession. Her dad’s best advice: “The dogs come first. Do whatever is best for the dogs,” she said. Haggerty, who dedicated her book to her father, worked with him on the soap operas “Guiding Light” and “All My Children.” Her father always encouraged her creativity. So, she didn’t just teach Jimmy Buffett’s Maltese to dance, but taught him to dance to “Margaritaville.” She didn’t just teach Jack Nicklaus’ golden retriever to bark on command, but taught it to bark six times when you asked, “Cali, how many times has daddy won the Masters?”

The book might come in handy for pet owners who need an extra paw around the house. Your dog can learn to fetch your keys, its food dish, a newspaper or the mail, she said. It can hold the dust pan, sort laundry or serve as your wakeup call. Or maybe you prefer the more difficult tricks: playing a toy-size piano, pushing a skateboard or hitting a baseball off a small tee. One satisfied customer is Candice Ball of New York City. She was tired of wasting money on training classes that didn’t work for her or her 6-year-old shih tzu, Toshi. “I failed the classes,” she said. “He wasn’t treat-motivated. We sat and stared at each other. Then someone recommended Babette.” There were no treats — just praise — and it was effortless, Ball said. A well-trained Toshi has since appeared on “Law and Order: SVU,” the final episode of “30 Rock” and in a New York Yankees commercial for MasterCard. He can also be seen appearing to read on page 154 of Haggerty’s book, released in October by Page Street Publishing

and co-authored by Barbara Call. What Haggerty promised in her book is true, Ball said. She and Toshi are having lots more fun now that they are doing so much together. In the book, each trick comes with photos, a hand signal, the tools needed (clicker, praise or treats), the average time it takes to learn it, difficulty (beginner, intermediate and advanced), advice from the expert and problem solving. A lot of the tricks take time and repetition, Ball said, from “dig on command” (beginner) to “get your leash” (intermediate) to “climb a ladder” (advanced). Some dogs are not as eager to please as others, and Haggerty said she has to get around that. “But I have met owners who were harder to train than the most difficult dogs.” The standard poodle is probably the easiest dog to teach, Haggerty said, and female dogs might be a little more compliant than males. To answer the question about old dogs and new tricks, Haggerty said she just took in a 9-year-old

Ball, of New York City, was tired of wasting money on training classes that didn’t work for her or her 6-year-old shih tzu Toshi. “I failed the classes. He wasn’t treat-motivated. We sat and stared at each other. Then someone recommended Babette Haggerty’s and her praise-only training methods.” she said. A well-trained Toshi has since appeared on “Law and Order: SVU,” the final episode of “30 Rock” and in a New York Yankees commercial for MasterCard. (AP Photo/Candice Ball) pooch she will train for the next month while its family adjusts to a new baby at home. The dog has never had training. As with most things, the basics will make everything after that easier, she said. “They have a better chance of success, and it opens the door to so

many more tricks. If your dog doesn’t have a good solid ‘stay,’ getting them to ‘dead-dog’ is going to be a lot more difficult,” she said of the trick in which a dog rolls over on its back and plays dead. “A few tricks make it easier for everyday families to have once-in-alifetime dogs,” she added.

‘Batkid’ begins fighting crime in San Francisco Paul Elias Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Batkid is fighting crime on the mean streets of San Francisco. Television news footage showed 5-year-old

Miles Scott, aka Batkid, leaving the city’s Union Square in one of two Batmobiles on Friday morning. The vehicles — two black Lamborghinis with Batman decals — were surrounded by media and onlookers. The drive through city

streets is part of a day of events organized by the Make-A-Wish Foundation to fulfill Miles’ wish to be Batkid. Miles was diagnosed with leukemia and is in remission. The Lamborghinis were escorted by police, who also blocked off

roads. Batkid’s first caper was rescuing a damsel in distress from cable car tracks. He was also scheduled to capture the Riddler as he robs a downtown bank and receive a key to the city from Mayor Ed Lee.

a 16-pound bird down 47 cents), Volpe says consumers shouldn’t be surprised if that component of the meal jumps as much as 5 percent over last year. Higher demand and feed prices are to blame. However, you might save a bit of cash on gas when you head to the grocer to get your turkey. At the moment, drivers are paying about 25 cents less per gallon than they were a year ago, with a national average of $3.19, according to travel tracker AAA. And while the group hasn’t issued a prediction for gas prices the week of Thanksgiving, they say that in recent years prices generally have dropped in the weeks leading up to the holiday. Need another reason to drive? The average domestic airfare is up 9.5 percent from last Thanksgiving to $313, according to the Airlines Reporting Corp., which tracks tickets sold by online and by traditional travel agencies. Meanwhile, Amtrak prices in September (the

most recent month for which data were available) were up more than 4 percent over a year ago. Consumers won’t be able to do much about the cost of travel, but there’s always plenty of ways to spend less — and a lot more — on food. The Farm Bureau estimate budgets $2.18 for a dozen brown-and-serve

dinner rolls. But if you’re willing break out a recipe and bake your own, a home cook could cut almost a dollar off that price. On the flip side, if you’d prefer to leave the cooking to others and purchase a ready-toeat meal from a grocer, expect to pay a premium for the convenience, maybe $75 or more.

Turkey

Miles Scott, dressed as Batkid, right, walks with Batman before saving a damsel in distress in San Francisco, Friday, Nov. 15, 2013. San Francisco turned into Gotham City on Friday, as city officials helped fulfill Scott’s wish to be “Batkid.” Scott, a leukemia patient from Tulelake in far Northern California, was called into service on Friday morning by San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr to help fight crime, The Greater Bay Area Make-A-Wish Foundation says.

From page 1 $43.47 in 2010, according to the annual informal survey of consumer grocery prices performed by the American Farm Bureau Federation. The group estimates the cost by averaging non-sale food prices around the country based on feeding 10 people a meal of turkey, bread stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls with butter, peas, cranberries, carrots and celery, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, and coffee and milk. And yes, their estimates account for the need for those allimportant leftovers. The credit for this year’s slight drop in price goes to stable commodity and fuel prices, both strong drivers of the prices consumers pay at the store, says Ricky Volpe, a research economist with the USDA’s Economic Research Service. He says overall grocery prices are down about one-tenth of a percent since January. One exception — poultry. Though the Farm Bureau didn’t detect a price increase in turkey since last year (they actually found the price for

Attack From page 1 He is slated to go to trial on Tuesday, Nov. 19, Leffler said. Holbrook is accused of being the drive for Smith after the attack in April, the prosecutor added Friday. The third person indicted is Brianna Boonie, 19, Hamilton Street, who was Smith’s girlfriend. She is charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated murder, a first degree felony; and obstructing justice. Her trial is slated for Dec. 10. Leffler said he did not know if Smith would be testifying for the defense at the Holbrook’s trial, but pointed out that Smith waived his right not to testify after pleading guilty and being sentenced. The Holbrook trial will start with jury selection on Tuesday and the jury will then visit the crime scene on Wednesday, according to the prosecutor.

Likewise, if your tastes lean to the organic or heirloom end of the food spectrum, you won’t find turkey for $1.36 a pound as the Farm Bureau did. Budgeting two or three times that is a safer bet. And since it’s impossible to escape holiday creep, we might as well break the bad news about your Christmas roast.

Beef prices are at or near record highs this year, so you can expect to pay as much as 2.5 percent more than last year for that succulent rib roast you’ve been waiting all year for. ___ AP Travel Editor Beth J. Harpaz and AP Airlines Reporter Scott Mayerowitz contributed to this report.
