GOOD MORNING CIA confirms Area 51 LAS VEGAS (AP) — UFO buffs and believers in alien encounters are celebrating the CIA’s clearest acknowledgement yet of the existence of Area 51, the top-secret Cold War test site that has been the subject of elaborate conspiracy theories for decades. The recently declassified documents have set the tinfoil-hat crowd abuzz, though there’s no mention in the papers of UFO crashes, black-eyed extraterrestrials or staged moon landings. Audrey Hewins, an Oxford, Maine, woman who runs a support group for people like her who believe they have been contacted by extraterrestrials, said she suspects the CIA is moving closer to disclosing there are space aliens on Earth. “I’m thinking that they’re probably testing the waters now to see how mad people get about the big lie and cover-up,” she said. For a long time, U.S. government officials hesitated to acknowledge even the existence of Area 51. The CIA history released Thursday not only refers to Area 51 by name and describes some of the aviation activities that took place there, but locates the Air Force base on a map, along the dry Groom Lake bed.

Trine freshman class numbers remain strong ANGOLA — Trine University is ready to welcome its fourth straight freshman class of more than 400 students and debut changes and upgrades when classes begin Aug. 20, university officials said Thursday. “We’re pleased to have more than 400 in the freshmen class at a time when many schools are experiencing a decrease in enrollment,” said Earl D.

ANGOLA — Plans for a new-look annual Fall Fest are in the works by Go Angola Downtown Alliance, starting with a new name — Autumn in Angola Festival. LeeAnn Snyder chairs the annual festival that will once again take place Sept. 27-29. One thing Snyder knows for sure is the longstanding Angola festival will be revamped. The fall festival is totally separate from the recent downtown Summer Fest, she stressed. Go Angola Downtown Alliance took over planning Fall Fest this year after the Angola Area Chamber of Commerce decided not to continue planning the annual event. Confirmed details for Autumn in Angola Festival are being worked out. “Kick off will be Friday night in Commons Park on the Roman Beer stage from 6-10 p.m. with Elements,” she said. “People will see some changes and old things.” Snyder said it’s also likely there will be a classic car cruise-in, a health area, an entertainment stage at Pint and Slice in the downtown, merchant vendors and a corn hole tournament. There will be no beverage tent this year. Snyder said that’s because the committee felt it would take away business from downtown establishments. “There’s so many local bars we’re not going to infringe on their business,” she said. Vendors are also needed. Fees have been lowered this year. “At this point, we’re looking for entertainers, restaurants in the food court, crafts and arts vendors,” Snyder said. “Hopefully, it will draw people downtown.” Also needed is entertainment and activities that will be in the kids’ area. For more details, visit or The festival will once again coincide with the annual Civil War Days held in Commons Park. For more details on Autumn in Angola Festival, call Snyder at 668-0402 or Kim Bordner at 665-9920.

Spiritual rites are not always godly (THIS IS PART 9 of a series on Magic, Medicines and Miracles.)

“When you come into the land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominable practices of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God, for these nations, which you are about to dispossess, listen to fortune tellers and to diviners. But as for you, the Lord your God has not allowed you to do this.” Deuteronomy 18: 9-14; ESV

Bible on Deuteronomy 18: 10 From this excerpt, we can see that sorcerers would use these mixtures to gain control over others. This is not part of God’s plan for man. God created the various plants and herbs to help man heal and to stay healthy. Man took these and corrupted this blessing and tries to manipulate and control others. We hear of countless accounts of cults using drug, alcohol, potions to gain control over their followers. Women are being exposed to different “date rape” drugs so their dates can have their way with these poor souls and then say “it was consensual.” If you include the different faiths of this world, you will see a great deal of styles in worship. Some of that which is worshipped are man-made. Like that in the Old Testament, man created images out of gold, stone, etc. … However, we tend to add a spiritual aspect to


When the Harry Potter series came out, there were various reports of an increase in the sales of items dealing with witchcraft, sorcery and magic. Books dealing with spells, crystals, potions, “magical herbs” and more were sought because, according to some, people were trying to become powerful like Harry, Ron and Herminie. After all, these three were using their magic for good; therefore, it must be OK to practice, right? Not so true a statement. Even with the best intentions, many of these spiritual rites are against God’s decrees. In Old Testament times, many nations were practicing witchcraft and sorcery, making potions and casting spells. God wanted different for his people. There are also references in the New Testament which speak about those who use magic. God does not resort to magic and other occult arts to make his will known or to exercise his power. His people have no need to resort to any sort of magic, witchcraft, astrology, horoscopes, Ouija boards, tarot cards, mediums, seances, divining rods, fortune-tellers, “spiritual advisors,” crystals, potions, drugs or any element of the occult. If we want to engage in true spirituality, we can find it clearly presented through the Scriptures and, ultimately, in the person of Jesus Christ, who is God among us. “God is Spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4:24). “We should be aware of spiritual evil but not be seduced by it, lest we be like moths drawn to a flame that kills” Word in Life Study Bible. In my last article, I shared some of the ingredients for natural, herbal and medicinal properties of various plants. In this article, I wish to share an example of some used in inappropriate ways. All of the practices listed here were common among the Canaanite religions. These exercises were dangerous not only because they identified the participant with pagan cults but also because wisdom was sought through magical and spiritualistic means rather than from God. A “soothsayer” was someone who received magical powers by incantations. A “sorcerer” would brew herbs to make magical potions to control circumstances as well as people. One who “conjures spells” (literally, “one who ties knots”) sought to bind people by the use of magic spells and incantations. Cultic practices were used as an attempt to communicate with evil and departed spirits (see also The Occult; 1 Sam. 15, Witchcraft). Woman’s Study

almost everything. In sports, it has been reported that people wear “lucky” charms or even wear the same clothes (often unwashed) when they are on winning streaks. The herbs and medicines are not the only things which are present in spirituality. In biblical times, people and religious leaders from pagan religions would offer various body parts, blood offerings from themselves, children and virgin sacrifices and other hard-to-believe rites in the name of their god/ goddesses. This series has a great deal of information which can be written. I encourage you to explore the area of interest you desire. Don’t just take my word for it; research and see that what I am sharing is true. THE REV. JOHN BOYANOWSKI

Youth Blogs • John 15:4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. BY TRACEY ZIMMERMAN

Here are the facts, gang, too many times we really want to have God step in but ONLY when life is not going well. We want him to swoop in like a superhero and solve problems in a super second. We want our independence. Like a toddler looking to do something independently and determinedly, we think we can do all things on our own. Not so!!!! So, how do we remain in Him? Well for starters we need to be seeking his will out for our lives. I believe that’s a three-fold process. 1. Jeremiah 29:13 If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. We have to be looking for him wholeheartedly in scripture. We can’t just be opening our Bible saying, “OK, God let the answers just fall out …” We have to every day … multiple times a day … seek him in our Bible and give him an opportunity to reveal truth. 2. Jeremiah 29:12 In those days when you pray, I will listen. See when we are seeking out his will in Scripture and then going to him in prayer we are preparing our hearts to approach him with an attitude of not our will but yours, Father. Much better approach then a Santa’s wish list approach. 3. Joshua 3:9 So Joshua told the Israelites, “Come and listen to what the Lord your God says. We need to listen. We need to stop and wait for signs of where we are to go. A door firmly shuts, it’s because we are to take another path. A wall appears out of nowhere… We can scale that with God … for all things are possible with God. TRACEY ZIMMERMAN is the youth pastor at Angola United

Methodist Church.

Society welcomes new vice president ANGOLA — The St. Francis of Assisi Conference of St. Vincent de Paul in Angola accepted the resignation of vice president and cofounder Chip Folck, who cited a lack of enough spare time to properly maintain the position due to the explosive growth of the Society in just 10 months time. Folck will remain as an active member of the society. At Tuesday night’s meeting, the society unanimously voted Rich Cain of Little Long Lake as the new vice president.

Power companies dangle phone-like deals NEW YORK (AP) — Electric bills have long been take-it-or-leave-it affairs: Pay one rate for all the power you used the month before, no matter when you used it. But some electric companies want to shake-up that rigid business model. They are increasingly offering plans that sound like come-ons from mobile phone companies: Free nights, free weekends and pre-paid plans. “We are seeing a transformation in the way people buy and use electricity in the U.S.,” says Steven Murray, president of Direct Energy’s residential energy programs. The more customized plans are made easier by the growing use of digital meters that wirelessly link electric companies and customers, allowing both to track usage in real time. Digital meters have not only spurred competition, they

have also enabled traditional utilities to reduce their costs by encouraging customers to use electricity during off-peak hours, when it is cheaper. Forty-two percent of U.S. electric customers have digital meters, up from less than 5 percent in 2008. In 2015, more than 50 percent will have them, according to Navigant Consulting. This new breed of electric plans comes with risks. Customers can end up paying a lot more for power than they expected. Some plans offer low introductory rates that can quickly skyrocket. Others have high early-termination fees. Some fixed-rate plans are a great deal if power prices rise, but they may seem awfully expensive if prices fall. If customers are careful, though, they can pay less. Dorothea Miller of Sinking Spring, Pa. signed

the information he leaked would be seen by al-Qaida members. On the espionage convictions, for transmitting defense information, Lind found that the leaked material was both potentially damaging to the United States and “closely held,” meaning it had been classified by the appropriate authorities and remained classified at the time it was leaked. The defense had argued that much of the information Manning leaked either contained no damaging information or was already publicly known. The lone computer fraud count on which Manning was convicted hinged on whether he knowingly exceeded his authorized access on a classified government network when he used his workplace computer to save the State Department cables to a CD so he could use his personal computer to transmit them to WikiLeaks. The defense had argued that Manning was authorized to view the cables as part of his job, and that there was no prohibition on downloading or saving them. Prosecutors had argued that Manning had no authority to access such a wide range of cables since his job was narrowly focused on the threat from Shia Muslims in Iraq. Lind drew a fine line in her legal reasoning. She said the phrase “exceeds authorized access” means Manning used the computer with authorization, and then used that access to obtain information he wasn’t entitled to obtain.

NSA under renewed scrutiny WASHINGTON (AP) — New revelations from leaker Edward Snowden that the National Security Agency has overstepped its authority thousands of times since 2008 are stirring renewed calls on Capitol Hill for serious changes to NSA spy programs, undermining White House hopes that President Barack Obama had quieted the controversy with his assurances of oversight. An internal audit provided by Snowden to The Washington Post shows the agency has repeatedly broken privacy rules or exceeded its legal authority every year since Congress granted it broad new powers in 2008. In one of the documents, agency personnel are instructed to remove details and substitute more generic language in reports to the Justice Department and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence — reports used as the basis for informing Congress. Senior lawmakers said they had been unaware of the audit until they read the news on Friday. Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Patrick Leahy announced he would hold hearings into the revelations. “I remain concerned

that we are still not getting straightforward answers from the NSA,” the Vermont Democrat said in a statement. Said Rep Mike Thompson of California, a member of the House Intelligence Committee: “Reports that the NSA repeatedly overstepped its legal boundaries, broke privacy regulations and attempted to shield required disclosure of violations are outrageous, inappropriate and must be addressed.” Obama has repeatedly said that Congress was thoroughly briefed on the programs revealed by Snowden in June. The two that were described then vacuum up vast amounts of metadata — such as telephone numbers called and called from, the time and duration of calls — from most Americans’ phone records, and scoop up global Internet usage data. Proposed legislation to dismantle the programs was narrowly defeated last month in the House, and at least 19 other pending bills are aimed at restraining NSA’s powers or changing how the agency is regulated, according to a count kept by the ACLU. The July legislative effort brought together Libertarian-leaning conservatives

and liberal Democrats who pressed for change against congressional leaders and lawmakers focused on security. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, who generally supports the programs, said in a statement Friday that the new revelations “are extremely disturbing.” A week ago, Obama sought to soothe concerns by promising to consider reforms to NSA surveillance. “It’s not enough for me to have confidence in these programs,” he said at a White House news conference. “The American people have to have confidence in them as well.” He announced changes such as convening an outside advisory panel to review U.S. surveillance powers, although it is unclear how that would differ from the existing U.S. Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, mandated by Congress to monitor surveillance and constitutional concerns. Obama also said the NSA would hire a privacy officer — though the NSA already has a compliance office. None of those measures would seem likely to stop the kind of inadvertent collection of information that was described in the NSA audit.

TEENS: Volunteers of all ages help at Firehouse FROM PAGE A1

Sherer said law enforcement officials have remarked they have noticed a decrease in criminal mischief in the area since the center opened. Fremont Town Manager Chris Snyder echoed those sentiments and said the Firehouse Youth Center was

definitely needed for teens to have somewhere to go. The center would never operate without volunteers and Sherer said people between the ages of 14-95 help out. “The Firehouse is giving people purpose,” he said. “But we’re a youth center and not a babysitting service.”

Military helicopters circled overhead as residents furious with the Brotherhood protests pelted marchers with rocks and glass bottles. The two sides also fired on one another, sparking running street battles throughout the capital’s residential neighborhoods. Across the country, at least 72 civilians were killed, along with 10 police officers, security officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with regulations. Friday’s violence capped off a week that saw more than 700 people killed across the country — surpassing the combined death toll from two and a half years of violent protests since the ouster of longtime leader Hosni Mubarak until the toppling of Morsi in a July 3 coup. Unlike in past clashes

between protesters and police, Friday’s violence introduced a combustible new mix, with residents and police in civilian clothing battling those participating in the Brotherhood-led marches. Few police in uniform were seen as neighborhood watchdogs and pro-Morsi protesters fired at one another for hours on a bridge that crosses over Cairo’s Zamalek district, an upscale island neighborhood where many foreigners and ambassadors reside. Friday’s violence erupted shortly after midday prayers when tens of thousands of Brotherhood supporters answered the group’s call to protest across Egypt in defiance of a military-imposed state of emergency following the bloodshed earlier this week.

BAND: Marching Hornets hope to repeat state run FROM PAGE A1

Eric Yoder KY.

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s capital descended into chaos Friday as vigilantes at neighborhood checkpoints battled Muslim Brotherhood-led protesters denouncing the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi and a deadly crackdown. The fiercest street clashes Cairo has seen in more than two years of turmoil left at least 82 people dead, including 10 policemen. The sight of residents firing at one another marked a dark turn in the conflict, as civilians armed with pistols and assault rifles fought protesters taking part in what the Muslim Brotherhood called a “Day of Rage” — ignited by anger at security forces for clearing two sit-in demonstrations Wednesday that sparked nationwide clashes in which more than 600 people died.

“There’s a lot more going on,” said junior guard member Andrea Parker. She said there is more choreography this year and that it is coming together well. “We’re going to love it when we’re done,” she said. Fogle said practices have been productive and that the 2013 marching band is on par with years past. Over 14 years as the AHS band director, Fogle said he’s learned some things that work. One of them is a unique process of shrinking down the music and putting it in binders on laces the musicians can sling over their shoulders for quick reference. As they were practicing some notes Thursday night, a number of the youths stopped to check

working in small groups or marching on the parking lot. “We’re definitely trying to get back to state finals this year,” said O’Beirne. “We can do it again and we can be awesome.”

TRINE: Bock Center finished on Angola campus FROM PAGE A1

because that field is one of the fastest growing in the nation. “We continue to partner with Parkview Health System and Lutheran Health Network for clinical education, and we’re also partnering with Turnstone for clinical education opportunities,” said Max Baumgartner, dean of the School of Health Sciences. Turnstone Center for Children and Adults with Disabilities Inc. provides therapeutic, educational, wellness and recreational programs to empower people with disabilities. Campus improvements also have taken place at Trine. The Jim and Joan Bock Center for Innovation and Biomedical Engineering is finished, and the former campus operations structure is being transformed for use by engineering students. The Bock Center’s south end is anchored by a cast metals lab, while the north end has a new plastics laboratory to support Trine’s plastics engineering curriculum, offered for the first time this year. Other labs

“We have implemented initiatives campus-wide, such as student focus groups, second-year student surveys and complete review of academic advising; increased the focus on a holistic approach to include residence life, financial aid and academics; and are using a new software system to help track changes,” Bennett said. Also on campus, Innovation One is marking its first anniversary. Innovation One, Trine’s incubator for new ideas and support for new and existing businesses, has completed more than 30 projects and has formed partnerships with area business and industry. It offers assistance in a variety of areas, including testing, research and development, marketing and prototyping. Trine also is enrolling students in its emerging doctorate of physical therapy program in Fort Wayne. The program aims to help meet the national need for physical therapists with doctorate degrees

in the building include rapid prototyping, materials testing and motion analysis. The two-story building also houses Innovation One, additional classrooms and Career Services. Renovation and expansion of the T. Furth Center for Performing Arts, scheduled for completion in spring 2014, will enable Trine to bring its music program back to campus from its rented quarters in downtown Angola. The theater program also will be at Furth. Next up for revitalization is Ford Hall, home to the Ketner School of Business and the Rhoads Center for Entrepreneurship. Ford is slated for a facelift and interior renovation. The exterior will be cloaked in brick and topped with a green metal roof to match other campus buildings. The interior space will be revamped for new classrooms, labs, enhanced technology and faculty offices. The start date is spring 2014 for exterior renovation, with interior demolition to follow.

Colts still searching for answers

Scores •

ANDERSON (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts came to training camp to see how much they had improved over last season. They left Friday still looking for answers. “I think once we get everybody healthy and we get everybody back, we’ve got a chance to be really good (defensively), especially in the back end,” Pagano said. “Once LaRon (Landry) gets back, the corner position, I think we’ve really upgraded and solidified ourselves there. If you stay healthy there, we’ve got a chance.” This year’s training camp was atypical. The rookie class, which was expected to help fill some of last season’s glaring holes, didn’t get much of a chance to prove itself. As first-round choice Bjoern Werner continued the transition from college defensive end to NFL linebacker, he sat out late

Cubs hold Cardinals without a run, 7-0 CHICAGO (AP) — In his second game with the Chicago Cubs, Jake Arrieta showed exactly why they’re putting him in the rotation for the rest of the season. The hard-throwing right-hander dominated the potent St. Louis Cardinals lineup for seven innings to lead Chicago to a 7-0 victory Friday. “That’s the kind of stuff the power arms can do when they’re throwing strikes and making pitches and you have a 91 mph cutter, slider or whatever you want to call it,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. “He made some really good pitches in some key situations of counts. When you thought you might be losing good hitters, he made some key pitches on the black at 95, 96 mph.” Arrieta (1-0) allowed two hits and two walks while striking out seven. In his only other start with





Chicago, Arrieta allowed one run and two hits in six innings July 30 against Milwaukee. He’s thrown 13 innings in a Cubs uniform and allowed one run. That’s a far cry from the struggling pitcher who went 1-2 with a 7.23 ERA for Baltimore this season before he was traded to the Cubs on July 2. The Cubs got Arrieta all the runs he needed in the first inning. After Westbrook walked the bases loaded, cleanup batter Nate Schierholtz hit a two-run single to center. Donnie Murphy added a two-out RBI single to make it 3-0. “We got some big hits. I think the biggest was Nate’s,” Sveum said. “We’ve had chances like that this year when we couldn’t come away with one and to come away with the big hit there and then Murphy’s two-out hit ... to get three runs on the board there was key in that game.”

LIGONIER — Fresh from their fourth win in five games, the Noble County Wolfpack travels to Nappanee today for an Interstate Football League game against the Michiana Thunderhawks. Kickoff is at 4 p.m. and fans are advised to bring chairs. The location of the game is in rural Elkhart County at 69954, C.R. 11, Nappanee. The Thunderhawks are 1-4 and the Wolfpack is 4-1. Noble County defeated longtime rivals Battle Creek Blaze by a 33-0 score in a game played last Saturday at East Noble High School in Kendallville. The ‘Pack scored touchdowns in all four quarters, including two in the third quarter against the Blaze. In the opening quarter, former West Noble player Dustin Petre picked off a Battle Creek pass and ran it back 40 yards for a touchdown with 11:15 on the clock. In the second period, another West Noble product, quarterback Michael Knepper, put six on the board with an 18-yard run. Fairfield graduate Alic VanOver scored touchdown no. 3 for the ‘Pack with 9:24 showing on the clock in the third quarter. He pushed his way into the endzone from 10 yards out. Byron Broyles made the score 26-0 for the Wolfpack with an 18-yard run late in the third quarter. In the final period, another former West Noble player, Matt Rupright, scored on a one-yard run with less than a minute to go in the game. Brian Clawson’s point-after kick was wide, leaving the final score at 33-0. Noble County has a bye over the Labor Day weekend and hosts the Indiana Mustangs on Sept. 7 at a site to be announced. The regular season ends on Sept. 14 with a showdown against the Indiana Cutters from Bloomington. The Cutters are the only team to defeat the Wolfpack this season.

Giants prepare for preseason game vs. Colts EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Last year, Rueben Randle was a second-round draft pick for the New York Giants, Stevie Brown was an unproven free agent safety and Michael Cox was a graduate student in training camp at the University of Massachusetts. Now Randle has more of a defined role with the Giants receiving corps, capitalizing on the off-season experience he gained during the absence of starters Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz. Brown, previously cut by two different NFL teams, is the strong safety after collecting a team-high eight interceptions. Cox, the seventh-round draft pick, was the Giants’ leading rusher in the preseason opener last Saturday against Pittsburgh. The Giants are preparing for their second preseason game against Indianapolis on Sunday night at MetLife Stadium. All three realize that they have a chance to contribute against the Colts and during the season. “I know I definitely don’t want to take a step back,” said Randle, who was a standout at LSU before joining the Giants last year. “I want to keep moving forward. I want to become more of a play maker.”

New York Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle reaches to catch a pass at the team’s training camp in East Rutherford, N.J.


Randle caught 19 passes for 258 yards and three touchdowns last season, starting one game and seeing action in all 16 contests. He said that he worked hard in the offseason, just in case Nicks or Cruz would not be ready. Even with both of the Giants’ top receivers in camp, Randle is still doing his due diligence. “I feel like I’m a better receiver now,” Randle said. “I did a lot of work on my strength and conditioning.” Randle said that he feels so

strong that he’s willing to take on another role with the team. “I’m ready to return punts if needed,” Randle said. “I’m willing to do anything.” Brown was a nondescript player for both Oakland and Indianapolis in his first two NFL seasons, but flourished last year after injuries catapulted him into a starting position a month into the season. Brown, a product of Michigan, ended up with eight interceptions, second-best in the entire league, earning a new

contract with the Giants. Brown could have been a restricted free agent. With Antrelle Rolle unavailable with an ankle sprain, Brown has become the leader of the secondary. It’s a complete turnaround from last training camp, when he was practically unknown. “It’s definitely different,” Brown said. “I didn’t have to do any interviews with this many people last year. I just got to eat lunch and go back inside. But

it’s definitely a little bit different. Coaches talk to you in a different way. Players talk to you in a different way. “I’m trying to be a little more vocal. It’s not about seeing if I can just make the team. It’s now about this team needing things from you and expecting things from you.” Brown was asked if he was expected to repeat last year’s breakout performance. “There are always going to be questions,” Brown said. “Until you become established and do it year-in and year-out, you’re always going to have questions. People wonder if you’re just a one-year guy. I believe that I still have to go out there and prove myself.” Brown said that he misses having Rolle alongside of him in the secondary. “It’s really crazy,” Brown said. “Trell is not someone to miss practice, miss games or anything, so to not see him out there for two days in a row is definitely different. He hates it. He wants to play and practice. That’s just the way he is. He wants to do everything. I told him, ‘Dude, it’s preseason. Relax.’ But he’ll be here soon enough.”

Kansas City sweeps pair of games from Tigers DETROIT (AP) — James Shields allowed three hits in seven scoreless innings and was part of a combined four-hit shutout in Kansas City’s 3-0 win over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night to give the Royals a sweep of a day-night doubleheader. Kansas City won the first game 2-1 as Danny Duffy took a no-hitter into the sixth inning and pitched a combined two-hitter. Royals pitching held the Tigers to a run and six hits for the two games. Eric Hosmer homered in each game. Shields (8-8) won his fourth game in his past five starts. He walked four and struck out one. The Tigers threatened against Shields in the second and third innings. In the second, a walk to Andy Dirks and Brayan Pena’s single gave Detroit runners on first and second with one out. But Shields got both Ramon Santiago and Jose Iglesias to hit pop-ups to the shortstop to get out of the inning. The right-hander walked Austin Jackson to lead off the third inning and Torii Hunter singled him to second. But Shields retired the next three hitters. Miguel Cabrera was retired on weak roller to Shields between the mound and first base on which the runners moved up to second and third. But Prince Fielder hit a short fly ball to left fielder Alex Gordon. Despite Jackson’s speed, it wasn’t nearly deep enough for him


Detroit Tigers’ Ramon Santiago rounds the bases after hitting a solo home run in the eighth inning during the first game of a doubleheader baseball game against the Kansas City Royals on Friday.

to score. Shields then got Victor Martinez to line out to right to end the inning. Luke Hochevar pitched a perfect eighth and Greg Holland worked the ninth, allowing a hit, for his 34th save. He had saves in both games of the doubleheader. Jose Alvarez (1-3), called up from Triple-A Toledo to make the start, took the loss. He gave up two runs and five hits in 5 2/3 innings, walking three and striking out five. Alvarez’s only big mistakes came in the third with two outs. He walked Jamey Carroll and Hosmer followed with his second home run of the day, that

gave the Royals a 2-0 lead. Hosmer blasted Alvarez’s 1-1 pitch deep into the right-field stands for his 14th homer. Alvarez was replaced by Jeremy Bonderman with two outs in the sixth. Bonderman got the final out of that inning and the first two outs of the seventh before being replaced by Phil Coke and Al Alburquerque. Carroll’s sacrifice fly in the seventh made it 3-0. It was an unearned run off Bonderman, whose throwing error on an attempted pickoff throw sent Chris Getz from first to third. He scored on the sac fly. Duffy (1-0) beat Justin Verlander in the opener. Duffy was called up from Triple-A Omaha to make his second big league start of the season, and didn’t allow a hit until Cabrera’s hard-hit, two out single in the sixth. “I was glad that they finally got one, honestly, because I just wanted to pitch,” said Duffy, who underwent Tommy John surgery. “I wanted to protect this arm.” Kelvin Herrera replaced Duffy in the seventh and retired the side in order. Aaron Crow worked the eighth and allowed Santiago’s pinch-hit home run leading off the inning. Crow got the next three batters. “Would have liked to have been able to accomplish two things, win and keep the bullpen fresh,” Verlander said. “Just didn’t happen that way. Felt like I threw the ball well. Just their guys pitched extremely well, which is they’ve done all year.”

Team owner Chip Ganassi, left, talks with one of his drivers, Juan Pablo Montoya, before the Brickyard 400 auto race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in

Indianapolis. Ganassi informed Montoya he will not bring the Colombian back for an eighth NASCAR season.

Montoya weighing his options but doesn’t have much to say BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) — No matter what kind of car he’s in next year, Juan Pablo Montoya is eager to start winning again. That was the message the 37-year-old driver repeated throughout a brief session with reporters Friday at Michigan International Speedway. Montoya won’t be back with longtime team owner Chip Ganassi for an eighth NASCAR season, and the Colombian driver’s future is very much up in the air. Montoya wasn’t tipping his hand Friday. “I’ve talked to a lot of people — put it that way,” he said. “I don’t want to be specific about anybody. I know some people are interested.” Montoya’s goal is pretty simple. “The only thing I said already is, I want to be in a winning car,” he said. “Don’t know what I’m going to do, but I want to make sure I’m in a winning car.” Montoya is one of the world’s most decorated drivers, with an Indianapolis 500 victory and wins in Formula One, NASCAR and the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona. But his results in NASCAR have been underwhelming. He has two wins in 239 career starts and his best season finish was eighth in 2009. Montoya’s latest stint with Ganassi began in 2006, when he left Formula

One for NASCAR. They also teamed up to win the 1999 CART championship and 2000 Indianapolis 500 before Montoya moved to F1. When asked if he could work with Ganassi in IndyCar or Grand-Am, Montoya left that door open. “It could be with Chip, could be with somebody else,” he said. “With Chip, something we said is, No. 1, make sure we keep our friendship. We are really good friends, we have a good relationship.” However, Montoya acknowledged that a change could help both parties. “We’ve been together for seven years. We had our ups, we had our downs. I think if we kept going and the results don’t come, we end up hating each other,” he said. “We’re really good friends. We respect each other as boss and driver and as friends as well.” Montoya is the only non-white Sprint Cup driver, and he helped expand NASCAR’s popularity outside the United States, but it’s not clear if he’ll be involved at all in NASCAR in the immediate future. He said he’s talked with other NASCAR owners this year, but he wanted to make sure he had the option of staying at Ganassi if possible. There aren’t many good open seats available on the Cup circuit, and Montoya could be forced to look at sports car racing, a return to

open wheel, or maybe even a European series. He was perhaps most vague when asked about possibly going to the IndyCar series. “I was committed to NASCAR. When you’re committed to NASCAR, you want to make sure your head is in NASCAR,” Montoya said. “My heart has always been in open wheel, I had a lot of fun in NASCAR. We’ll see.” It’s not clear who will replace Montoya in the No. 42 Chevrolet next season. Kurt Busch, who drives for single-car team Furniture Row Racing, could be a candidate. “I know Chip real well and the whole gang,” Busch said. “They came up with that decision not based off any of the talks that I’ve had with them, but it is a potential opportunity, that’s for sure.” Montoya’s departure from Ganassi’s NASCAR team surprised some drivers. “Juan has been with Ganassi for so long that it did catch me off guard,” Jimmie Johnson said. “I’m used to seeing Ganassi winning races and running up front through the open wheel world, and I would imagine there would be a shake-up at Ganassi through the offseason. … So yes, shocked. But the more I think about it I feel like there was some change coming there.”

Europe takes early 3-1 lead at Solheim Cup PARKER, Colo. (AP) — Three straight long putts stunned America’s No. 1 power pairing Friday and helped the Europeans get off to a surprising early lead at the Solheim Cup. Azahara Munoz and Karine Icher made consecutive birdies from 15, 25 and 20 feet on holes 8 through 10 to open a big lead over Cristie Kerr and Paula Creamer en route to a 2-and-1 victory that gave Europe a 3-1 lead after the opening alternateshot matches. “We had an amazing stretch on 8, 9 and 10,” Munoz said. “And after that, we just kept plugging along and we just did our job.” America’s only point came from Morgan Pressel and rookie Jessica Korda in a 3-and-2 victory over Catriona Matthew and Jodi Ewart-Shadoff. Before Munoz and Icher were through, Europe already had two points on the board. The all-Swedish pairing of Anna


United States’ Brittany Lang, left, and Angela Stanford, right, celebrate a birdie on the third hole during a foursome match in the Solheim Cup golf tournament on Friday.

Nordqvist and Caroline Hedwall beat British Open champion Stacy Lewis and Lizette Salas 4 and 2, and Suzann Pettersen’s partner, rookie Beatriz Recari, made a 20-foot eagle putt on

16 to close out a 2-and-1 win over Brittany Lang and Angela Stanford. “It’s early. It’s Friday morning. We’re going to be ready for this afternoon,”

Stanford said. For the afternoon best-ball matches, U.S. captain Meg Mallon put Michelle Wie in the lineup, pairing her with Kerr against Matthew and 17-yearold Charley Hull, the youngest Solheim Cup player ever. Other matches: Lang and Brittany Lincicome against Nordqvist and Giulia Sergas; Stanford and Gerina Piller against Hedwall and Caroline Masson; Lewis and Lexi Thompson against Pettersen and Carlota Ciganda. The United States is trying to recapture the cup after losing it to the Europeans in Ireland two years ago. The Americans were considered favorites coming in, having never lost the Solheim Cup at home. The match started getting away early, when Kerr missed short putts on Nos. 1 and 5. Then, it was Icher and Munoz opening up a lead with their putters.

COLTS: Irsay expected more from Indianapolis in last weekend’s contest FROM PAGE B1

The good news Friday was that tight end Dwayne Allen, who is expected to miss a couple of weeks with a foot injury, was out of his walking boot. Pagano said he would alternate using orthopedics in his shoes and the boot until he is healthy. Despite the injuries, team owner Jim Irsay clearly expected more from Indy in last weekend’s preseason opener. On Monday, he used Twitter to apologize to fans for the abysmal showing. Irsay’s critical words resonated inside the locker room. “He’s the keeper of the brand, he’s the protector of the ‘shoe and that’s his job. He’s the

boss,” said five-time Pro Bowler Robert Mathis, who gave up his custom-made facemask after the NFL ruled he couldn’t wear it during games. “We weren’t satisfied with our performance last weekend, so we’re making it a point of emphasis to just give a better showing and just hone in on the details and just improve on everything that we’re learning in practice.” Though Andrew Luck did not lead the Colts on a scoring drive, Indy did have a 10-3 lead when Matt Hasselbeck departed early in the second quarter and things didn’t really get ugly until late in the first half — long after the Colts starters had been pulled.

And the defense has looked better. It has won its share of head-to-head battles against the offense, something players believe bodes well for Sunday’s game at New York — and the rest of the season. “We feel like we’re gelling as a unit,” Mathis said. “Unfortunately, a lot of injuries, so we’re waiting to get a lot of guys back. But for the most part, we feel like we’re coming together, and we’re going to make a lot of people proud of us.” Pagano also has been pleased with the progress of the rebuilt offensive line, which did allow one sack against Buffalo — a sack Luck blamed on himself, not left tackle Anthony

Castonzo, who missed the block on Mario Williams. But the Colts still don’t know what they’ll get out of Bradshaw, whether receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey will perform like a former first-round draft pick or whether he’ll continue to struggle catching passes or who will provide the pass rush opposite Mathis. And the only to get those answers now is back on the home front. “I think we made improvement in all areas,” Pagano said. “I just think at times for whatever reason we end up shooting ourselves in the foot in all areas.”


SPORTS BRIEFS • Phillies fire manager Manuel, promote Ryan Sandberg PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Charlie Manuel was fired as manager of the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday, with his team way out of the pennant race and in a tailspin since the All-Star break. Manuel, the winningest manager in franchise history, was replaced by Hall of Famer and former Cubs second baseman Ryne Sandberg, the Phillies’ third-base coach. Sandberg managed the Phillies’ Triple-A team at Lehigh Valley the previous Sandberg two seasons. The 69-year-old Manuel led Philadelphia to the franchise’s second World Series title in 2008 and brought the team back to the series in 2009, when they lost to the Yankees in six games. Manuel was 780-636 with the Phillies and won five straight NL East titles from 2007-2011. He also spent three years as manager with the Cleveland Indians, winning the AL Central in 2001.

Logano sets track record in qualifying at Michigan BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) — Joey Logano raced to one of the fastest qualifying speeds in NASCAR history Friday, winning the pole at Michigan International Speedway at 203.949 mph. Logano broke the track record set by Marcos Ambrose last year. Ambrose’s mark of 203.241 mph came on the first Sprint Cup weekend on a newly paved surface at MIS. His record lasted 14 months. Logano’s speed was the ninth-highest by a pole winner in NASCAR history — and the fastest since Bill Elliott set the record of 212.809 mph at Talladega on April 30, 1987. Kurt Busch qualified second, and points leader Jimmie Johnson was third. Logano is 16th in the Cup standings, and this is his first pole of the year.

Djokovic’s bid for ATP history ends in Cincy MASON, Ohio (AP) — Top-ranked American John Isner ended Novak Djokovic’s attempt to make ATP history Friday, beating the No. 1 player 7-6 (5), 3-6, 7-5 in the quarterfinals at the Western & Southern Open. Djokovic has never won in Cincinnati, the only Masters event that has eluded him during his career. He has lost in the finals four times, including last year to Roger Federer. Isner reached the semifinals in Cincinnati for the first time, knocking off a No. 1 for only the second time. He’ll play seventh-seeded Juan Martin del Potro, who advanced Friday by beating qualifier Dmitry Tursunov 6-4, 3-6, 6-1. Del Potro is in the semifinals for the second straight year. No. 2 Andy Murray lost to Tomas Berdych 6-3, 6-4. Berdych also beat Murray in the quarterfinals at Madrid this year. In the women’s draw, 14th-seeded Jelena Jankovic beat 12th-seeded Roberta Vinci 6-0, 6-4 to reach the semifinals for the third time. She won the tournament in 2009 and lost the title match to Maria Sharapova in 2011.

Dunn hits 28th homer of season, Chicago wins 5-2 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Adam Dunn hit his 28th home run and Jose Quintana tossed six sharp innings to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 5-2 win over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night. Quintana (7-4) scattered six hits over 6 2-3 innings, giving up two runs and striking out seven. Jeff Keppinger also homered to help Chicago snap its season-worst, 10-game road losing streak. Joe Mauer homered in the first for Minnesota, but Keppinger and Dunn both hit solo shots off Twins starter Kevin Correia (8-9) in the third to make it 4-1. Quintana breezed through Minnesota’s lineup the rest of the way after losing his previous start against the Twins on Sunday in Chicago. Quintana allowed five runs in five innings in that game, but looked completely different Friday. Early on, the 24-year-old lefty looked to be in for another rough outing when Mauer lined a 3-2 offering into the right-field seats to put Minnesota up 1-0. But Quintana settled down after that, setting the Twins down in order three times. Dayan Viciedo put Chicago up with a two-RBI single in the second before Keppinger and Dunn added all the insurance runs Quintana needed.

Pence names appointees to Ind. motorsports panel INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Gov. Mike Pence has appointed two motorsports veterans to serve on a state panel tasked with helping to create a sound, commercially viable investment for motorsports in Indiana. Pence’s appointees Wednesday include Fort Wayne car dealer Tom Kelley and Tim Clauson of Noblesville. Kelley founded Kelley Racing, an Indy Racing League team that captured nine wins with drivers Scott Sharp, Mark Dismore and Al Unser, Jr. from 1998 to 2004.




Record corn crop predicted by USDA Soybean crop could be third highest INDIANAPOLIS — What a difference a year can make. Farmers rebounding from the ravaging drought of 2012 are projected to harvest a record amount of corn and a third-highest yield of soybeans nationwide, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture report released Monday. Indiana farmers are expected to bring in their second-highest bounty of corn. “To say what a difference a year makes is a huge understatement. It’s a big difference this year,” said Jay Akridge, Glenn W. Sample Dean of Purdue Agriculture, at the Indiana State Fair, where a panel of agricultural experts analyzed the USDA’s August crop production report, the first look at expected harvests for 2013. The panel was organized by Purdue Extension. Akridge, who moderated the panel, noted in his opening remarks that the report “sets up potential for a huge crop.” “It’s good to have a crop to talk about this year,” he said, smiling. Purdue Extension corn

specialist Bob Nielsen noted that last year’s August report offered no such encouragement to farmers. “As agronomists, we were hard-pressed to smile,” he said. That has changed this year. The USDA projects a nationwide corn crop of 13.8 billion bushels on an average yield of 154.4 bushels per acre, up from last year’s 10.8 billion and 123.4, respectively. For soybeans, the USDA expects farmers to harvest 3.26 billion bushels on a yield of 42.6 per acre, compared with 3 billion bushels on 39.6 last year. The drought reduced last year’s corn harvest to its lowest level since 10 billion bushels in 2003, and the average bushels per acre was the lowest since 113.5 in 1995. Indiana, which was among the first states in the country to emerge from the drought — some states farther west are still in it — is forecast to produce 979.4 million bushels of corn on yield of 166 bushels per acre, compared

with 596.9 million on 99 last year. The production would be shy of a record of 980 million bushels set in 2007. Indiana farmers are projected to bring in 261.5 million bushels of soybeans on an average yield of 50 per acre, compared with last year’s 223.5 million on 43.5. The market conditions for agricultural commodities in 2013 are the result of planting decisions made by farmers in spring 2012 and growing conditions experienced throughout summer 2012. The 2012 planting season got off to a strong start, as warm, dry weather during an early spring allowed planting, especially of corn, to proceed at a record pace across much of the Nation. Area planted to corn increased nearly 6 percent over the previous year to 97.2 million acres, while soybean area rose to 77.2 million acres, the third highest amount ever and only 253,000 acres below the record high in 2009. But conditions worsened over the summer, as drought severely


Northeast Indiana farmers for the most part are also experiencing good crops, as is the entire state and most sections of the Midwest.

stressed corn, forage, and other crops. Corn yields at harvest were only 123.4 bushels per acre, the lowest since 1995 and 25 percent below initial forecasts. Hay production in 2012 fell to its lowest level since 1964 and was 9 percent below the drought-reduced harvest in 2011. The decline in soybean yields was more modest as late-season

rains helped many of the drought-stressed fields recover somewhat prior to harvest. Still, the average yield of 39.6 bushels per acre was 10 percent below initial expectations and 5 percent below 2011 levels. The 2013-14 outlook for U.S. grains and oilseeds anticipates another year of large plantings supported by strong new-crop prices and correspondingly favorable revenue protec-

tion under crop insurance. As is customary so early in the growing season, the outlook assumes normal weather patterns that will support crop yields at or near levels consistent with long-term trends. Thus, planted area is the critical factor driving the early outlook for each commodity, particularly how farmers allocate their acreage across different crops and competing uses.

Fish farms are on the rise Autotoxicity in alfalfa: causes, effects and solutions

WEST LAFAYETTE — The business of raising fish may still be relatively small in Indiana, but it is a growing part of the state’s agricultural economy, a Purdue Extension report concludes. Estimated sales from Indiana fish farms amounted to more than $15 million in 2012, an increase from $3.5 million in 2006, according to the publication Economic Importance of the Aquaculture Industry in

Indiana. There are about 50 fish producers in Indiana, compared with 18 just seven years ago. “While aquaculture is not the most well-known industry in Indiana’s agriculture sector, it is definitely present and very important to the state’s economy,” Kwamena K. Quagrainie, aquaculture marketing specialist in Purdue University’s Department of Agricultural Economics, said in the report.

He conducted the study with graduate student Megan C. Broughton. Indiana’s aquaculture industry ranges from small-scale producers raising fish in their backyards to large-scale producers growing fish to sell in national and international markets, the report says. The industry includes production of fish for human food, ornamental fish for aquariums and recreational fish.

I get the question alot about how and when alfalfa fields should be reseeded and concerns about autotoxicity. Greg Blaser and Kristi Larsen, Extension specialELYSIA ists from Brigham RODGERS Young University, have easily described the answer to this almost monthly question I am asked. The average stand of alfalfa lasts between five to six years. Once it becomes evident through stand and stem evaluation, or through increased pest population, that the alfalfa stand needs to be replaced, the grower should consider some potential problems with replanting a new crop too quickly. University studies have shown that there should be a minimum of one year before re-establishing alfalfa because of autotoxicity in existing alfalfa. Autotoxicity is a form of allelopathy that affects alfalfa plants. Allelopathy is defined as the effect a plant has on another through the production of chemical compounds released to the environment.

Stand evaluation When a grower determines to replace the alfalfa stand, the decision is based on stem and stand count. Initially, plants per square foot was the standard used to determine when to replace alfalfa; however, in the last several years, alfalfa replacement has been assessed by stem count. This method has been proven to be a good indicator of potential yield. Stems should be 4 inches or taller

to be counted. Other basic guidelines in stem evaluation include the following: • If stem count is 55 or more, expect no change in yield. • If stem count is between 40 and 50, expect some reduction as the stand declines • If there are less than 39 stems per square foot, there will be a decline or reduction in yield. Once the grower has determined to replace the existing stand, there are some questions that need to be addressed. How much time should be allowed before replanting? Research in Michigan shows that a three-week waiting period was all that was needed before replanting; however, in Missouri there was a yield loss of 8 percent if alfalfa was planted within three weeks. In Wisconsin, yield was reduced 70 percent when seeded two weeks after plowing existing alfalfa, and 30 percent after four weeks. Guidelines given from Purdue and other university studies show that at least one year would be the best option. What rotation crops could be included to utilize the one-year or two-year rotation? The primary purpose of rotation following alfalfa is to utilize the fixed nitrogen. Using a rotation crop provides the time to reduce the water-soluble, autotoxic chemicals found in the soil following alfalfa. Alfalfa plants younger than a year have fewer toxins than older plants. This means that with a less-than-acceptable stand of new seedlings, the opportunity exists to reseed within one year’s time and the new seedlings will have a strong chance of survival. To reduce the risk of toxicity, the following

guidelines may be useful.

How to deal with autotoxicity The majority of the studies show that the best way to deal with autotoxicity is to allow a minimum of one year between the existing stand and the new planting. Autotoxicity affects the germination of seedlings. The recommendation for waiting at least one year would be the least risk, although some growers have planted just weeks following the elimination of the previous stand. Evidence suggests deep tillage of alfalfa fields will mix the soil and reduce the autotoxic chemicals. Soil texture will determine the amount of toxins in the soil. Sand, for example, is one type of soil that distributes the chemicals and makes it easier to leach. If the soil is clay, delays in planting should be increased. Some growers suggest, after harvesting the last cutting, to remove it as soon as possible, and when everything has been removed, spray with a herbicide and till. The idea is to remove most of the allelopathic chemicals before they have time to settle into the soil. Most studies have determined that a rotation out of alfalfa is best before reseeding back into alfalfa. Not only will a rotation interval between alfalfa crops reduce the toxicity, rotation will also reduce diseases, insects, weeds and other pest pressures. As an added bonus, rotation out of alfalfa will also provide utilization of fixed nitrogen to other crops.

Take care of cattle in hot weather WEST LAFAYETTE — Heat and humidity are set to return to the eastern Corn Belt after weeks of unseasonably cool temperatures, meaning cattle producers need to be on the lookout for signs of heat stress in their herds. Heat stress in cattle is a concern because it can reduce breeding efficiency, milk production, feed intake and weight gain. Extreme cases can be fatal, said Ron

Lemenager, Purdue Extension beef specialist. Heat stress affects all cattle, but hide color plays a role in determining which cattle might be more susceptible. Black-hided cattle absorb light, making them more prone to heat stress, whereas cattle with lighter colored hides, such as cream or red, might not become heat stressed as quickly. “The good thing is that

here in the eastern Corn Belt, we’ve actually had some pretty cool temperatures through the early part of the summer,” Lemenager said. “We don’t have the heat stress we had a year ago when we were experiencing the 2012 drought.” According to Lemenager, it usually takes a combination of high temperatures and high humidity to cause heat stress and other problems.



Battle of the sexes Women make only 77 cents per each dollar made by males. Outrageous! Sex discrimination! So say advocates of government-enforced “equality.” But they are wrong. Women today are rarely victims of salary discrimination. If they were, market competition would punish bosses who discriminate. A company that hired women who were “underpaid” by other companies would have a cost advantage, allowing them to lower prices, and they’d quickly take business away from the “sexist” JOHN competition. Since those female workers provide the STOSSEL same value for less, entrepreneurs who hired only women would get rich! Warren Farrell, author of “Why Men Earn More,” dug deeper into reasons why women are paid less and found that it’s women who make discriminating choices. Women are more likely to choose a well-rounded life than their workaholic male peers. “Many women say, what do I want? Do I want to make $200,000 a year, or do I want more personal time? Time with my children? More spiritual time?” He found that even female business owners are more likely to favor flexibility and proximity to home. Men are more likely to chase higher earnings by working longer hours, traveling farther and taking dangerous assignments. They are paid accordingly, though they may not be happier. In her recent book, “Lean In,” the chief operating officer of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg, urged women to put in the extra effort that enables workers to jockey for position in business. She says: “At Facebook, we hosted a senior government official, and he had these two women traveling with him who were pretty senior in his department. And I said to them, sit at the table, come on, sit at the table. (But) they sat on the side of the room.” Sandberg’s been criticized by feminists for this common-sense message. The critics claim she “blames the victim.” But most women are anything but victims. Making a different choice, choosing a less careerdriven life, may be why women have more friends and live longer. Many women don’t want “corporate success,” though it’s politically incorrect to admit it, says Sabrina Schaeffer, executive director of the Independent Women’s Forum. “I don’t think that most women want what Sheryl Sandberg wants,” Schaeffer told me. “In some recent studies, only 23 percent of women said that they would prefer to work full-time, let alone (have the) sort of CEO quality of life that Sheryl Sandberg is living.” Regardless of what many women prefer, America now is stuck with laws based on a feminist view that only discrimination accounts for differences between women and men — and that government must use regulation to “correct” those differences: affirmative action, subsidies for femaleowned businesses, Title IX rules that require equal money for women’s college sports, etc. Instead of trying to change sexist male institutions by force, Sandberg’s book suggests that women change voluntarily. “Sandberg picks up on some very sensitive gender differences,” says Schaeffer. “She says, look, women don’t negotiate their salaries. I was one of those women. My brother told me he negotiated every salary he had. The fact is, once you’re aware of that, you can do things.” If they do, women might very well overtake men in business — but they will have to give something up to do it. Psychiatrist Dr. Daniel Amen, author of “The Power of the Female Brain,” conducted the biggest brain-scan study ever done — 46,000 scans — and found that “female brains were dramatically more active. Women are really wired for leadership. … If it wasn’t for this thing called children that derails their careers … they really make great CEOs.” Amen says women are “better with things like empathy, intuition, collaboration, self-control.” Since leadership isn’t all about bellowing and frightening people, those are useful corporate skills. They are also useful skills for managing a household full of children and promoting family life. We should respect both choices. Politicians and “equality” feminists should respect reality: Differing choices come with differing rewards — and different salaries.

We all should bring passion to our work and play It is always heart-warming to open the garden gate of the White Picket Gardens and hear the rustle of leaves in the old maple tree whispering “welcome home.” The gardens are lovely and in full bloom thanks to my neighbors, Larry and Sherrie and Virginia. I really don’t know what to do first. So many images of my island summer mix with my Midwestern-hometown. I hear the train in the distance and think, for just a moment, it is the ferry on Ocracoke Island. I am dazzled; yes Colleen, dazzled by the Steuben County Farmer’s Market offering food from the earth and other local crafts. I cannot get away because I am surrounded by greetings to welcome me home. The weekend continues with a premiere of my new show at Elten’s and Carolyn’s house, a midnight trek to Pokagon to watch the Perseid meteor showers. Virginia, Kathy and I take blankets and watch the sky light up with shooting stars. In the early morning we leave, letting Fred Wooley escort us back to the car. In the quiet darkness Fred points out the sound of a barred owl. We listen as the sound comes closer, and in a few moments, the owl flies over our heads. We stand in amazement letting the dark shadow of the owl paralyze us with wonder. It is back to school on Monday and I think about the students returning along with the incoming freshmen. For two days I listen intently to short speeches and share lunch with my colleagues. Two new professors join the Humanities and Communication Department. They are young and just beginning their careers. I am happy to share a small role with folks who love to discuss poetry or art or Composition 103! I deeply consider what I can bring to this table and to the students who will sit in the seats in

front of me next week. A few nights with a campfire, a short visit with Aaron’s family, a re-packing of my suitcase, and I am back on the road taking the storytelling journey once again. I arrive at Ellen’s late. She tells me that we have an early morning as we are doing a short video in the Crown Hill Cemetery. We meet the film crew at the cemetery. I have between 10-15 seconds to speak. “Impossible.” I say. We choose a quiet spot and an interesting LOU ANN tombstone. I talk and Ellen crouches behind and slowly HOMAN- holds up the poster for ghost stories in October. SAYLOR We do five takes as we laugh and tell stories in between. The film crew tells me my hair is golden red in the early morning light and will look great in the video. So now here I am back at Ellen’s preparing for the IndyFringe13 festival opening this weekend. This is my second Fringe opportunity. These performances don’t quite happen overnight; I have been preparing for this show for months. Writing, editing, rewriting (are my new students reading this?) and then doing it all over again. The cutting floor gets heavy with stories which do not fit even though I love them. My own rehearsals are lame without a real audience in front of me. The distractions are many and often. I check Facebook, make tea, put clothes in the washer, hang out the clothes and check Facebook. Finally I stand with my script and my timer and

• go through my 50-minute show without stopping except to cut again or add as an idea pops into my head. Why is it I have chosen this career of storytelling to be one of my pathways? Laboring over my work in a quiet studio is often a lonely occupation. And opening night? The critics sit in the back with tablet in hand. I sweat and shake and wish to live unknown in a cabin in the woods. But I take the stage and everything changes and nothing exists in this world except the dance of the teller with the audience. The hour is but a snap of the finger and we have become one. I guess the word is simple … passion. Should we not all have it in the work and play that we do? The applause is over. I gather my things and slip out the stage door. It is time to mingle with other performers, watch other shows and go over my show again. Wherever I go, whatever I do … six steps and a door and the show goes on. LOU ANN HOMAN-SAYLOR lives in Angola at the White Picket Gardens where you can find her gardening or writing late into the night under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp. She is a storyteller, teacher, writer, actress and a collector of front porch stories.

What Others Say • Scandals in Cuba A rusty North Korean ship hides 2 MiGs, munitions and radar systems — 240 tons of contraband weapons in all — under tons of sacks of Cuban sugar then gets stopped going through the Panama Canal. A former Cuban Interior Ministry colonel accused of abusing prisoners of conscience retires in Miami, then flees to Cuba when former prisoners spot him on South Florida streets only to return again, this time to New Jersey, and, get this, apply for U.S. aid. A growing number of Medicare fraudsters owing

the U.S. government millions of dollars for fake claims exit stage left and head to the communist island, living the high life with impunity. Meanwhile, Cuban officials keep decrying the U.S. “imperialist” government for an embargo that has so many loopholes — allowing food, medicine and even high-tech communications to reach Cubans — that it’s turned into a paper tiger without a Cold War roar. What’s going on? Are U.S. officials paying attention? Then there’s the case of Crescencio Marino Rivero, 71, and his wife Juana Ferrer, as reported by El Nuevo

Herald’s Cuba reporter Juan Tamayo on Sunday. … U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement may be investigating if the couple lied on their entry papers, but ICE officials won’t confirm it — though former political prisoners have said ICE officials have interviewed them about this case. The couple maintains they are innocent and simply want to live in peace near their daughter in South Florida. It wouldn’t be the first time that former Cuban military or Interior officials get a pass — virtually every U.S. administration has allowed it in exchange

for information that those former officials can provide about Cuba. … The question begs: If Cuba is on the State Department’s “terror” list, why would the regime’s former officials be able to obtain U.S. visas and go back and forth to the island in their “retirement”? Cuba is not a postcard of rum and dance. It should give U.S. officials pause that the 54-year dictatorship run by the Castro brothers has been securing friends in all the wrong places: from North Korea to Iran. Nothing good can come of it.

Language barrier leaves girlfriend out in the cold DEAR ABBY: I recently started dating one of my graduate school classmates. We come from different cultures, but we get along great and I really like him. My problem is he’s very close to his family, who seem to like me very much, but I always feel left out around them. An example: The nine of us went out to dinner and the whole time they were speaking to each other in their native tongue while I just sat there. Then, after dinner, his parents asked why I was so quiet. The family speaks English fluently and are otherwise nice to me. When I confronted my boyfriend about it, he said it would be disrespectful for him to speak to his elders in English. I want a future with this man, but I know it




native tongue so you’ll have some idea about what’s being said. (And won’t they be surprised when you respond!) One thing about your letter does concern me, however, because it raises a potential red flag. Does your boyfriend’s unwillingness to stand up for you foretell a pattern of always deferring to his parents? If that’s the case, it could be a source of frustration and conflict for you in the future. Please think about it.

New sunscreen labels better than old ones the new FDA rules, if a label says “broad spectrum,” the product must pass tests proving that it protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Also under the new rules, the term ASK “sunblock” is no longer DOCTOR K. allowed, because none of these Dr. Anthony products block all Komaroff of the sun’s rays. “Waterproof” is also banned, because water does rinse off some of the creams. It’s just a matter of degree. You want creams that are least likely to wash off when you go into the water. Some creams fit the bill; under the new rules

they are called “water-resistant.” This term must be accompanied by a set time for reapplication. Another big change concerns SPF, or sun protection factor. SPF is a measurement of how much longer it takes for your skin to turn red from the sun after applying the sunscreen. Sunscreen with an SPF of less than 15 for both UVA and UVB must now carry a warning that it only reduces your risk of sunburn, and does not reduce your risk of either skin cancer or early skin aging. When you go out in the sun, you want to reduce your risk of sunburn, early skin aging and skin cancer —not just one or two of them, but all of them. I recommend you use a sunscreen with the following features: • Broad spectrum protection • SPF of 30 or higher • Water-resistant for up to 40 or 80 minutes

DEAR DOCTOR K: Sunscreen labels have changed since I stocked up last year. What should I look for on the new labels? DEAR READER: Sunscreen products do look different than they have in the past, as new rules for labels are now in effect. These new rules, mandated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), have made sunscreen labels more informative and less misleading. Sunlight exposes your skin to ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays. UVA rays age and wrinkle skin; UVB rays cause sunburn. Both contribute to skin cancer. So you want to protect your skin from both UVA and UVB. Sunscreens vary in their protection against UVA and UVB. The best protection is “broad spectrum protection,” which filters out much of the UVA and UVB. Under

Once you buy the right sunscreen, make sure to apply it properly: • Apply sunscreen before you go out. • Apply enough and reapply frequently.

California teen welcomed home after kidnapping LAKESIDE, Calif. (AP) — A 16-year-old girl got a warm welcome home reception five days after FBI agents killed a longtime family friend suspected of torturing and killing her mother and brother and escaping with her to the Idaho wilderness. Hannah Anderson was mobbed by reporters as she entered and left a restaurant that hosted an all-day fundraiser. News crews were told to wait outside while Hannah and her father stayed for hours. She did not make a statement. “I don’t know what I want to say. I just want to give her a hug,” said Alyssa Haugum, a classmate of Hannah’s in Lakeside, an east San Diego suburb of 54,000 people. Brett Anderson said his daughter was taking things one day at a time. He said he spoke with the horseback riders who saw the pair in the Idaho wilderness and alerted authorities, thanking them for saving Hannah’s life. “Right now, she’s with her family and, of course, with some friends, and

she’s just happy to be here,” he told reporters outside the restaurant Thursday. Firefighters found the body of Christina Anderson, 44, near a crowbar and what appeared to be blood next to her head. James Lee DiMaggio is believed to have shot and killed their family dog, found under a sleeping bag in the garage with blood close to its head. Investigators found 8-year-old Ethan’s body as they sifted through rubble. DiMaggio “tortured and killed” the mother and son, San Diego County Sheriff’s Detective Darren Perata wrote, offering no elaboration, in the warrants released Wednesday. Investigators who searched DiMaggio’s home found letters from Hannah, an incendiary device, handcuff boxes, a handwritten note, a Yosemite camping guide, two used condoms and “arson wire,” according to one warrant, which does not elaborate on the content of letters or nature of the devices. Jan Caldwell, a spokeswoman for the San Diego County Sheriff’s Depart-

ment, declined to comment on the content of Hannah’s letters. “As to the other items, I believe they rather stand on their own and clearly elevated the need to find her as soon as possible,” she wrote in an email. The warrants say DiMaggio and Hannah exchanged about 13 phone calls before she was picked up from cheerleading practice Aug. 4, hours before firefighters found DiMaggio’s burning garage in Boulevard, a rural town 65 miles east of San Diego. They do not indicate the time, duration or nature of the calls. Caldwell has said they may have been discussing pickup times. San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore has been adamant that Hannah was an unwilling victim from start to finish. “I can’t make it any clearer,” he said at a news conference Monday. DiMaggio was extraordinarily close to both children, driving Hannah to gymnastics meets and Ethan to football practice. The warrants say the former telecommunications technician took Hannah on multi-day trips, most recently

High school students come up empty in shark-tagging ISLAMORADA, Fla. (AP) — Sharks abound in the waters off Florida. But not on this day at this particular spot off the Keys as some ‘young scientists’ are on watch for them. About a dozen high school students — guests of the University of Miami’s marine research program — went aboard the vessel Curt-A-Sea. Their mission: to help scientists capture sharks, measure them, take blood

and conduct other tests before tagging them so they can be tracked. The sharks would then be released back into the ocean. Students including 14-year-old Kyle Truesdell, kissed chunks of fish, placed the bait on 10 weighted hooks and waited. And waited. And waited some more. For six hours. But on this day, no sharks were biting. Catherine Macdonald, lab manager for the univer-

sity’s R.J. Dunlap Marine Conservation Program, has been tagging sharks for 10 years. Tuesday’s trip was her first shutout. Although some students got seasick or stung by jellyfish while swimming, Macdonald tried to make it a learning experience. “If there are no sharks, there is a reason for it,” she said. “Whether it’s a change in barometric pressure, the presence of all these jellyfish or it’s the water temperature,

I don’t really know. But the more days we have like this the better able we are to sort of look at that data and see what it might be telling us.” And while there were no sharks to catch, organizers hope these students will be hooked on science. Each summer, nearly five dozen students are immersed in a 6-week marine science and technology program with activities at the Miami Museum of Science — the

first science museum in the nation to become an Upward Bound Math & Science Center — and other facilities. The students work in teams to complete hands-on research projects. Leandra Gonzalez wants to be a marine biologist. She said she was disappointed she didn’t get to tag any sharks. The data the students help gather serves to evaluate the size of shark populations and record crucial habitats
