attention and was featured on an episode of the television show “America’s Most Wanted.” Musilek and her family set up a reward, offering $20,000 to the person who helps identify and convict her father’s killer. But so far, no one has come forward to collect that reward. The local prosecutor’s office said, like any murder case, the Anderson investigation is still active. So, Sunday, Musilek and her family will drive to Mongo from their Chicago home and once again commemorate the memory of her father’s and stepmother’s deaths. It’s always a difficult day for the entire Musilek family. The Rev. James Bartlett of the
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republicans’ clear defeat in the budget-debt brawl has widened the rift between the Grand Old Party and the blossoming tea party movement that helped revive it. Implored by House Speaker John Boehner to unite and “fight another day” against President Barack Obama and Democrats, Republicans instead intensified attacks on one another, an ominous sign in advance of more difficult policy fights and the 2014 midterm elections. The tea party movement spawned by the passage of Obama’s health care overhaul three years ago put the GOP back in charge of the House and in hot pursuit of the law’s repeal. The effort hit a wall this month in the budget and debt fight, but tea partyers promised to keep up the effort. Whatever the future of the troubled law, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell vowed he would not permit another government shutdown. “I think we have now fully acquainted our new members with what a losing strategy that is,” McConnell said in an interview with The Hill newspaper. Tea party Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas told ABC News he wouldn’t rule out using the tactic again, when the same budget and debt questions come up next year. “I will continue to do anything I can to stop the train wreck that is Obamacare,” Cruz said. That divide defined the warring Republican factions ahead of the midterm elections, when 35 seats in the Democratic-controlled Senate and all 435 seats in the Republican-dominated House will be on the ballot. In the nearer term, difficult debates over immigration and farm policy loom, along with another round of budget and debt talks. The animosity only intensified as lawmakers fled Washington this week for a few days’ rest. The Twitterverse crackled with threats, insults and the names of

Part of the Angola Marching Hornets horn section sits on tarps on the field while
performing, “Reaching Out.” The band will be in regional competition today in Chesterton.
AHS marching to regionals BY AMY OBERLIN firstname.lastname@example.org
CHESTERTON — The Angola Marching Hornets hit the field at 2:28 p.m. in the first round of Indiana State School Music Association marching band competitions today. Angola competes in ISSMA’s Open Class in Class C in today’s regional competition. The Marching Hornets arrived at Chesterton High School fresh from a well-received show at the ISSMA Open Class Exhibition last Saturday in Fort Wayne. The 2013 show, “Reaching Out,” earned awards of distinction
in music, general effect and visual effect. “The ISSMA invitational performance was without a doubt the strongest performance of the year,” said director Kevin Fogle. “Reaching Out” uses challenging music from Michael Kamen’s “The New Moon in the Old Moon’s Arms.” Choreography includes jumps and leaping gestures in keeping with imagery from the reaching hands in a Michelangelo fresco, “The Creation of Adam,” found in the Sistine Chapel. The show has done well
in the first part of the season. Judges have said the students are performing at a high level, playing complicated music with a complex show. “To prepare for the regional we listen to the feedback from the six adjudicators, review the video and apply the suggestions to our show as we work on peaking our performance for the final weeks of the season,” Fogle said. If Angola is a top act at regionals, it will advance to the ISSMA Open Class semi-state Oct. 26 at Decatur Central High School in Indianapolis.
Survivors mark murder’s passing Double homicide remains unsolved 8 years later BY PATRICK REDMOND email@example.com
MONGO — It’s been nearly eight years since her father and stepmother were murdered, but when October arrives, Sherry Musilek says she becomes a very different person. “Yeah, every year when October comes around, I go into a different mood,” she said. “I can’t help but think, ‘Here comes another memorial.’” Musilek’s father, Mongo resident Terry Anderson, and his wife, Darlene, were murdered eight years ago. Their case remains unsolved, so Musilek once again will mark the anniversary of their deaths by holding a somber memorial service in the Mongo cemetery
where the Andersons are buried. This year’s ceremony takes place Sunday at 1 p.m. “It’s been another year without any leads,” said Eric Musilek, Sherry’s husband. Early on the morning of Oct. 21, 2005, the bodies of Anderson and his wife were found brutally murdered at their rural Mongo home. Darlene Anderson’s body was discovered inside the house, Terry Anderson’s body was found near the house in his shop. Several unique and antique weapons Terry Anderson owned turned up missing, along with several collectible coins he and his wife had. None of those items ever have been ever been found. The crime attracted national
REMC shows destruction of high voltage BY JENNIFER DECKER firstname.lastname@example.org
ANGOLA — Human contact with high-voltage power lines can have devastating and deadly results. Steuben County Rural Electric Membership Corp. officials demonstrated to local emergency services personnel the potential destructive effects of high voltage on Thursday. The demonstration was at the Angola Fire Department for Steuben County first responders during a class on electrical safety. Matt Lorntz, a veteran REMC lineman, did the demonstration as his colleagues, lineman Gary Ritter and energy adviser Josh Durbin, watched and explained the demonstration, which used a hot dog. Lorntz exposed the hot dog to the live wire and it sputtered and sparked. “Hot dogs are closest to the human body to show how 7,200 volts or 12,500 volts” affects the human body, said Jaime Walker, director of REMC director services. “It definitely does damage internally. It cooks like a microwave from the inside out.” SEE TRAINING, PAGE A5

Go to the light: Be one of the glow-in-the-dark people “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16; ESV BY JOHN BOYANOWSKI
As a child, I found myself being fascinated by the toys and such that glowed in the dark. I would get these toys and hold them up to the light in my room and then try to make it totally dark in my room so I could see my toy glow bright. I wasn’t afraid because I had the light in my very hands. I felt safe. Being a child, that was very important. If I had others with me (family or friends) when I was playing, I would
invite them to come into my room so I could show them how the light pierced the darkness and made me feel powerful. I am sure that I drove them nuts! But I was proud of my light and wanted everyone to enjoy it with me. Not everyone was as excited about the light as I was. I love the light. It isn’t because I am afraid of the dark; however, I’m simply happier being in the light. Spiritually speaking, I feel the same way. I know what it is like being in the dark spiritually; it’s a dangerous place to be! Even if you feel comfortable in the darkness, there are still hidden dangers and traps which will get the best of you! You need the light to see your way through. I like to think of myself like my glow-in-the-dark toys of my youth; if I am to shine in the darkness, I always need to be exposed to the Light of Life (Jesus).
Just like that toy needing to constantly exposed to the light in order to shine, so I must be exposed to the light in order for me to shine. Without that connection, I would become as dark as the area around me. I want my light to shine for Christ and not myself. The glow-in-the-dark items contain phosphors, a substance that radiates visible light after being energized. Any item which has this component will have the ability to glow when exposed to light. Our spiritual “phosphor” is Christ. Having him in our lives gives us the power to “shine” in the darkness of this world. The world needs to have more shining their lights to make it a brighter place. Allow me to ask a simple question: Are you a glow-in-the-dark person? Do you so let your light shine or do you hide it under a bushel? Have you
You can’t masquerade before God
too long, we will begin to become dim and our light begins to fade. Attending church, Bible study (spending time in God’s Word), prayer, and fellowship with believers all keep us connected to the source of our light. It is my prayer that we all become glow-inthe-dark people for the Lord. What a bright future we could have if we only plug ourselves in! Father God, As the Newsboys once sang, “I want to be in the light, as you are in the light. I want to shine like the stars in the heavens.” Let us all desire to become lights in this dark world that we might draw others to you. Grant us all the ability to bring you the glory and honor you rightfully deserve. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. THE REV. JOHN BOYANOWSKI
serves at Pleasant Lake United Methodist Church.
and words need to match up at all times. I do mean ALL times! I want God to be pleased with what I say and do. I do not want to be wearing a mask at times that fools others but not God. I do not want to be anything that I am not unless dressing up for a costume party. We need to make sure that we are striving to be who God intends for us to be and not trying to fool others, because we will wind up only fooling ourselves. Dear loving and gracious father — May my words and actions match up. May I always be who I really am and not some fake version of who I need to be. May my heart and actions match at all times and may they be pleasing unto you! AMEN

I recently preached on “Things aren’t always what they seem.” You know at this time of the year dressing up in character and enjoying all kinds of fall and Halloween activites, this just really still strikes a cord with me. Sometimes people dress up as what they desire to be: superheroes, princesses, firefighters, police officers, and so on. Sometimes people dress up to be scary things. I remember one Halloween when my daughter was terrified by someone dressing up as a werewolf. She cried when she saw him. The costume was very convincing. In life it is important to see people for who they really are. I love the verse from 1 Samuel that talks about how God sees us. 1 Samuel 16:7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I
allowed yourself to be used by Christ to draw others unto him? Our good works should point directly to God who gave us the ability and privilege to bring glory to Him. We are all called to let our lights shine if we are true believers. When we become glow-in-the-dark people, others will give glory to God. Why would others give glory to God for what we do to shine? Maybe we gave them light to come out of the darkness. It might be that we provided hope for the hopeless person. However God has gifted us to serve, He will receive glory from it if we allow our light to shine. This is why we need to become glow-in-the-dark people. Just like the toys need a constant connection to stay illuminated, we must stay connected to our source of light: Jesus Christ. If we stay away from Him
have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” You see no matter if in costume or in our everyday clothes God sees the heart. I can sometimes be fooled. I believe people and trust at times when I should not. God is never fooled. If you say, “I am sorry” and you really do not mean it, HE KNOWS. If you promise to do something and you have no intention of doing it, HE KNOWS. You might be able to fool some of the people some of the time, but you can never fool God. No matter what costume or mask you put on. So what does that mean? It means that our word always needs to be our bond. Our actions

When I went into labor at 26 weeks, it was the scariest time of our lives. By the grace of God, our little Max was born breathing weighing in at 2 lbs., 2 oz. and 14 in. long. The next three months are a blur to us now, so many ups and downs, but day-by-day Max grew stronger. On April 9 ,2013, 13 days before my due date, we got to bring our little miracle home! He was still on monitors and oxygen, but he was home! As scary as the last 8 months have been, we look at him now and all of the progress he has made, we would go through it all over again to have him here with us. We would like to thank our family, friends and some kind people we don’t even know for the generous donations, kind words and wonderful prayers! We could not have gotten through this without you all! We are so overwhelmed by the love and generosity from everyone and we can’t thank you all enough!

In this 2003 file photo, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Tom Foley speaks after receiving the Medal of Merit during ceremonies in Olympia, Wash. Foley has died at the age of 84, according to House Democratic aides on Friday, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Foley was a Washington state lawmaker who
Ex-House Speaker Tom Foley dies at 84 WASHINGTON (AP) — Tall and courtly, Tom Foley served 30 years in the House when partisan confrontation was less rancorous than today and Democrats had dominated for decades. He crowned his long political career by becoming speaker, only to be toppled when Republicans seized control of Congress in 1994, turned out by angry voters with little taste for incumbents. Foley, the first speaker to be booted from office by his constituents since the Civil War, died Friday at the age of 84 of complications from a stroke, according to his wife, Heather. She said he had suffered a stroke last December and was hospitalized in May with pneumonia. He returned home after a week and had been on hospice care there ever since, she said. “Foley was very much a believer that the perfect should not get in the way of the achievable,” Ms. Foley wrote in a 10-page obituary of her husband. She said he believed that “half of something was better than none.” “There was always another day and another Congress to move forward and get the

other half done,” she wrote. “America has lost a legend of the United States Congress,” President Barack Obama said in a statement Friday, adding, “Tom’s straightforward approach helped him find common ground with members of both parties.” Foley, who grew up in a politically active family in Spokane, Wash., represented that agriculture-heavy area for 15 terms in the House, including more than five years in the speaker’s chair. In that job, he was third in line of succession to the presidency and was the first speaker from west of the Rocky Mountains. As speaker, he was an active negotiator in the 1990 budget talks that led to President George H.W. Bush breaking his pledge to never agree to raise taxes, an episode that played a role in Bush’s 1992 defeat. Even so, Bush released a statement Friday lauding Foley. “Tom never got personal or burned bridges,” said Bush. “We didn’t agree on every issue, but on key issues we managed to put the good of the country ahead of politics.” Also in 1990, Foley let the House vote on a resolution authorizing Bush to use force against Iraq for its invasion of Kuwait, despite “strong personal reservations and the strenuous objections of a good many” House Democrats, Bob Michel, an Illinois Republican who was

House minority leader at the time, recalled Friday. “But he granted our request for a vote because it was the right thing to do. He was that kind of leader,” Michel said in a statement. Foley was also at the helm when, in 1992, revelations that many lawmakers had been allowed to overdraw their checking accounts at the House bank provoked a wave of anger against incumbents. In 1993, he helped shepherd President Bill Clinton’s budget through the House. He never served a day as a member of the House’s minority party. The Republican capture of the chamber in the 1994 gave them control for the first time in 40 years, and Foley, it turned out, was their prize victim. He was replaced as speaker by his nemesis, Rep. Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., leader of a group of rebellious younger Republicans who rejected the less-combative tactics of established GOP leaders like Michel. Foley was defeated in 1994 by 4,000 votes by Spokane attorney George Nethercutt, a Republican who supported term limits, which the speaker fought. Also hurting Foley was his ability to bring home federal benefits, which Nethercutt used by accusing him of pork-barrel politics. Foley later served as U.S. ambassador to Japan for four years in the Clinton administration.

ANNIVERSARY: ‘Someone got away with murder’ FROM PAGE A1
Mongo United Methodist Church will provide music and prayers. Musilek will talk about her life searching for justice and closure during the eight
years since the tragedy. The event is open to the public. “Someone got away with murder. It’s going on eight years, and we’re still looking for answers,” Eric Musilek
said. “One day I hope me and my wife can go there (the cemetery) and pay our respects without the media, because there has been an arrest, and we can put Terry and Darlene to rest.”
“I don’t assume anything anymore. There’s a lot of potential. Your life is worth more.” Walker and Stackhouse gave the following life-saving pointers during the class: • When power lines are down, they don’t always snap if they’re still live. Therefore, caution should always be used and any line should be treated as if it’s live. • Remember that a substation fire will blow up. • At vehicle accidents, first responders should secure the scene and never become complacent if the scene appears stable.

Walker said the electrical safety for first responders is something the company likes to conduct annually. In doing so, it keeps first responders refreshed in dealing with life-saving incidents. “We hope for an appreciation for how harmful high voltage electricity is and how to educate the public in handling it,” she said. “We’re not here to tell you how to do your job, but to give you another arsenal.” Walker talked to the first responders, along with Bill Stackhouse, REMC director of operations. “It’s all about potential there,” Stackhouse said.
the 27 GOP senators and 87 GOP House members who voted for the leadership’s agreement that reopened the government and raised the nation’s borrowing limit. Republicans got none of their demands, keeping only the spending cuts they had won in 2011. Within hours, TeaParty. net tweeted a link to the 114 lawmakers, tagging each as a Republican in name only who should be turned out of office: “Your 2014 #RINO hunting list!” “We shouldn’t have to put up with fake conservatives like Mitch McConnell,” read a fundraising letter Thursday from the Tea Party Victory Fund Inc. Another group, the
Senate Conservatives Fund, announced it was endorsing McConnell’s GOP opponent, Louisville, Ky., businessman Matt Bevin. “Mitch McConnell has the support of the entire Washington establishment and he will do anything to hold on to power,” the group, which raised nearly $2 million for tea party candidates in last year’s elections, announced. “But if people in Kentucky and all across the country rise up and demand something better, we’re confident Matt Bevin can win this race.” The same group pivoted to the Mississippi Senate race, where Republican Thad Cochran is weighing whether to seek a seventh term. Cochran voted for the
McConnell-Reid deal, so the Senate Conservatives Fund endorsed a primary opponent, state Sen. Chris McDaniel, a private attorney the group says “will fight to stop Obamacare,” ”is not part of the Washington establishment” and “has the courage to stand up to the big spenders in both parties.” There were more tea party targets: Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham in South Carolina and Lamar Alexander in Tennessee also are seeking re-election. To her Facebook friends, vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin posted: “We’re going to shake things up in 2014. Rest well tonight, for soon we must focus on important House and Senate races.”
Legislature takes Homeland security may see shift charge of school grading system INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The battle for control of Indiana’s education policy escalated Friday when top Republican lawmakers shifted calculation of school accountability grades for the 2012-2013 school year from the Department of Education to the Legislature’s bill-drafting shop. House Speaker Brian Bosma and Senate President Pro Tem David Long signed off on a request from Republican appointees to the State Board of Education. The board members crafted a letter Wednesday questioning why Superintendent Glenda Ritz has yet to release the A-F grades or teacher effectiveness ratings. The letter, which was obtained by The Associated Press, also requested that responsibility for compiling the rankings be shifted from the Department of Education to the Legislature’s nonpartisan analysis and bill-drafting arm. The move comes amid an overhaul of the grading formula following a grade-changing scandal involving former state schools chief Tony Bennett. Bennett resigned as
Florida’s schools chief in August after The Associated Press reported he had overhauled Indiana’s grading formula to ensure a charter school founded by a top Republican donor received an A. It’s also the latest scuffle in what’s becoming a power struggle between Republicans and Ritz, the lone Democrat holding a statewide office. Since Ritz defeated Bennett last November, lawmakers have considered diluting her power on the board, a Bennett ally on the board has taken control of long-term planning for the group and Gov. Mike Pence created a second education agency charged with shaping education policy along with job-training initiatives. The A-F grades have become increasingly important in recent years. They help determine teacher pay and school funding and whether schools that receive failing grades are turned over to private operators. They also play a role in home sales as families weigh education rankings before deciding where to buy a house.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Friday nominated the Pentagon’s former top lawyer to help craft the nation’s counterterrorism policy as secretary of the Homeland Security Department, suggesting a shift from the department’s emphasis on immigration and border security. Jeh C. Johnson, whose first name is pronounced “Jay,” would replace Janet Napolitano, who left the post last month to become president of the University of California system. Obama said he was nominating Johnson because of his “deep understanding of the threats and challenges facing the United States.” He credited Johnson with helping design and implement policies to dismantle the core of the al-Qaida terror organization overseas and to repeal the ban on openly gay service members in the U.S. military. “He’s been there in the Situation Room, at the table in moments of decision,” Obama said as he announced the nomination from the Rose Garden on a crisp and sunny fall afternoon. The Homeland Security Department was created in response to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, which Johnson noted fell on his birthday. He noted that he was in Manhattan

But he left government service in 2012 and said he was settling back into private life and work at a law firm. “I was not looking for this opportunity,” Johnson said. “But when I received the call, I could not refuse it.” Obama’s selection of Johnson suggests the agency will be stepping

back from its emphasis on immigration to focus more on protecting the nation from attack. Unlike Napolitano, Johnson has spent most of his career dealing with national security issues as a top military lawyer. Issues he handled included changing military commissions to try terrorism suspects rather than using civilian courts and overseeing the escalation of the use of unmanned drone strikes during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Napolitano, who came to the department after serving as governor of Arizona, made clear that her top priority was immigration reform, and she routinely championed the issue in congressional testimony. Johnson, a multimillionaire lawyer outside of his government posts, has defended the administration’s targeted killings of U.S. citizens overseas as well as the role of the U.S. spy court and crackdowns to keep government secrets.
Killers who escaped prison Obama faces spat over Iran with fake papers still at large ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Within days of strolling out of prison without a hitch, two convicted killers freed by bogus paperwork went to a jail about 300 miles away and registered as felons, records showed. They were even fingerprinted, photographed and filled out paperwork to apparently keep up the ruse. Authorities are now searching for Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker, who were mistakenly freed from a Panhandle prison within the last month. Both men were serving life in prison but were let go when authorities said forged documents duped the Corrections Department and court system and reduced their
sentences to 15 years. “We’re looking at the system’s breakdown, I’m not standing here to point the finger at anyone at this time,” Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said Friday as he appealed to the public to help authorities find the men. He said he believed they were still in the central Florida area. The release led prosecutors and prison officials to review their records to make sure no one else had been mistakenly freed. The corrections agency also changed its policy to require officials to verify all early releases with judges. Jenkins was released Sept. 27 and registered at the
Orange County jail in Orlando on Sept. 30. Walker was set free Oct. 8 and registered there three days later. Felons are required to register by law. When they do, their fingerprints are digitally uploaded to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and a deputy at the jail verifies that they don’t have any outstanding warrants, said jail spokesman Allen Moore. By registering, Jenkins and Walker likely drew less attention to themselves. “If there’s no hit that comes back, they’re free to go,” said Isaiah Dennard, the Florida Sheriff’s Association’s jail services coordinator.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is weighing whether to offer Iran the chance to recoup billions of dollars in frozen overseas assets if it takes steps to scale back its nuclear program, U.S. officials and congressional aides said Friday. The proposal would face a skeptical Congress determined to make the end of Tehran’s uranium enrichment activity the condition for any sanctions relief. The brainstorming comes after two days of nuclear negotiations between Iran and world powers ended this week in Geneva. The talks — the first since Iranian President Hassan Rouhani took office — ended on an upbeat note although it fell short of specific and concrete commitments by Iran to stop enriching uranium or
ship out its stockpiles of higher-enriched uranium. The proposal is one of several under consideration to spur negotiations to ensure Tehran can’t produce atomic weapons. Enriching uranium can produce material for peaceful energy purposes or nuclear arms. Under the plan being weighed, Iran would be able to access money from oil sales overseas that it currently can only barter with because of U.S. and international sanctions. Senate aides put the total between $50 billion and $75 billion. It’s not clear what Iran would have to do in return to prompt the Obama administration to allow banks to release the money. The premise behind providing Iran with cold cash is that opening and shutting such a valve
would be far easier than beginning to take apart years of complicated, international financial and oil sanctions that would also be difficult to put back together if Iran failed to live up to the bargain. Finding a formula for sanctions relief is important if President Barack Obama is going to be able to offer the Iranians good reason to be open about their nuclear program before they reach the point of nuclear weapons capability. A nuclear-armed Iran could prompt a U.S. or Israeli military intervention. “Iran will have to agree to meaningful, transparent and verifiable actions before we can seriously consider taking steps to ease sanctions,” White House spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said.

ANGOLA — Angola is glad to end the regular season with a win Friday. Central Noble can gain a lot even thought it lost. The Hornets had to hold off the Cougars over the final minute and a half to win the Northeast Corner Conference matchup 28-22 behind Angola Middle School on Senior Night. The win appeared to be firmly secured for AHS when Simon Gardner broke loose for 53-yard touchdown run with 9 minutes, 20 seconds left to end a 9-play, 97-yard drive. Spencer Stites kicked his fourth extra point of the game to put the Hornets up 28-12. Angola (5-4, 5-3 NECC) had two big third-down conversions on that drive. There was a 21-yard pass from Jake Roddy to senior Nick Spears on third-and-13 to the Hornets’ 32-yard line. Senior Troy Zvirblis had an eight-yard run on third-and-3 before Gardner’s scoring run. But Central Noble (1-8, 0-8) did not quit. Senior Colton Kirkpatrick took the ensuing kickoff 73 yards for a touchdown. Senior Garren Deck ran for two points to make it a 28-20 game. Angola was stopped on downs on its final two drives. But the Hornet defense made the biggest plays down the stretch to stop the driving Cougars and clinch the victory. Linebacker Dylan Belcher nearly met Deck at the handoff for a loss on a fourth-and-1 play at the Angola 28 with under 3 minutes left. The Hornets recovered the fumble. Then a couple of unsportsmanlike penalties got the Hornets off on the wrong foot. Angola had 11 penalties for 96 yards on the game. Central Noble used all three of its timeouts to help get the ball back. Angola punter Austin Bauer ran around the end zone for several seconds before stepping out of the end zone to take a safety and the Cougars were within six with 1:33

BUTLER — Possibly the best thing about Friday’s football game between the Eastside Blazers and Prairie Heights Panthers is both teams get a fresh start next week when sectional play begins. Each team committed four turnovers and combined for 130 yards in penalties in a game won by the Blazers, 34-13. There was a 20-minute delay in the third quarter when the lights and scoreboard went out at Eastside’s field, plunging the field into darkness. In the fourth quarter, injured Prairie Heights lineman Michael May was wheeled off the field on a stretcher. The Blazers finish regular-season play at 4-5 overall and 3-5 in the Northeast Corner Conference. The Panthers end the regular season at 4-5 overall and 4-4 in the NECC. Eastside struck first when Jacob Thompson

of his late brother Alexx. Angola forced five turnovers. “Without the takeaways, we would have been on the other side of the coin,” Hornet coach Josh Schoeff said. “We continued to put ourselves in bad position. We stalled drives with mistakes. We did not adjust to their size and speed. We did not come in with the right mental intensity and focus. Their coach (CN’s Jeremy Yates) is doing a great job with his kids.”
ANGOLA — Ball State University’s football team stopped at Trine University Friday afternoon for a final walk-through practice on its way to Kalamazoo, Mich., for this afternoon’s Mid-American Conference contest with Western Michigan. A practice stop at Fred Zollner Athletic Stadium has been part of the Cardinals’ routine on the way to Michigan MAC schools (Western, Central and Eastern) in all three seasons under coach Pete Lembo. Ball State has an alumnus in Thunder athletic director and head football coach Matt Land. “We’re very, very grateful and appreciative of Coach Land to open up Trine’s doors to us,” Lembo said. “We’re big believers in consistent routines. They have great facilities here. The visiting locker rooms here will be as good as we’ll be in tomorrow. “This is a good halfway point for us to get off the bus and stretch our legs. It minimizes our concerns of having to do our preparations at opposing stadiums. But it’s more about breaking up our 4-hour trip.” It has only taken seven games for the Cardinals to be bowl-eligible as they are 6-1 overall, including 3-0 in the MAC. This is their best start since 2008 and only the fourth time they have started 6-1 or better since 1977. Ball State has won eight straight MAC games and 12 out of its last 13 regular season games dating back to last season. During Lembo’s tenure in Muncie, the Cardinals have been bowl-eligible in all three seasons and are also 12-3 in games decided by a touchdown or less. The biggest highlight for Ball

to go. The Cougars took the ensuing kickoff for a 15-yard return to the Hornets’ 39. Central Noble ran on two plays to get a first down to the AHS 18, but was set back by a holding penalty on a big first-down run by quarterback Brock Noe and a false start penalty on the following snap. Noe was 0-5 on that drive, including an interception by Bauer in the end zone on the final play of the game. Bauer wore No. 10 in tribute

recovered a Panther fumble on the first scrimmage play. Four plays later, Tristan Sprunger caught a short pass from P.J. Dean, and the Blazers led 6-0 barely a minute into the contest. That’s where it stayed until late in the half. The Blazers lost fumbles on three of their next five possessions and had short punts on two others, giving the Panthers quality scoring opportunities. Prairie Heights was unable to capitalize when an apparent touchdown pass from Kyler West to Corey Johnson was ruled out of bounds. Later, the Panthers gave up the ball on downs inside the Blazer five, and threw an interception on another drive that began in Eastside territory. The Blazers, who had just four first downs for the game, gave themselves some breathing room with two touchdowns in the final three minutes of the half.

LIGONIER —West Noble’s defense intercepted Fremont four times Friday night as the Chargers ended their regular season with a 32-12 victory over the visiting Eagles. West Noble recorded three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to break open what had been a tight contest. It was senior night for the Chargers who recorded their third win of the season. Both teams came into the game with 2-6 records. West Noble’s Luke Wechter intercepted Fremont’s Kaleb Hayes late in the fourth quarter to quash Fremont’s hopes of tying the game. A few minutes later, Landon Stover also picked off a Hayes pass to totally end any chance the Eagles had of coming back on the Chargers. Stover’s interception led to the Chargers’ third touchdown of the quarter, a nine-yard run by Levi Nelson with 1:09 left in the game. Uriel Macias’ point-after kick put the final score at 32-12.

BALL STATE: Lembo’s primary focus is on his own Cardinals
HORNETS: Angola will go against DeKalb in sectional showdown
FROM PAGE B1
FROM PAGE B1
“We’ve had an opportunistic defense. We’ve had more turnovers in seven games this season (18) than we had the entire last season (14). It’s still a work in progress, but we’re slowly steadily getting better. In our win over Kent State last week (27-24 on homecoming in Muncie), we had a terrific goal line stand and our defense gave us a chance to win.” Ball State will try to move forward against a rebuilding Western Michigan team that is 0-7 under first-year coach P.J. Fleck, the youngest head coach in the Football Bowl Subdivision at age 32. “I would say this. Every situation is different. Every coach has his own vision of building a program. Coach Fleck has a vision and his administration and fan base are behind him,” Lembo said. “They’ve had a tough situation with injuries. But there is talent there and they have one of the best defenses in the conference. “But we have to worry about ourselves. If we are not at our best, anybody can beat us. And we’ve been in close games before with Western.”
State so far this fall is a 48-27 triumph at Atlantic Coast Conference program Virginia on Oct. 5. “It was a tremendous win for our program and our university,” Lembo said. “The positive exposure for our program has been terrific.” Ball State received nine votes in the Harris Poll this week. The Cardinals are led by senior quarterback Keith Wenning, who has completed 60.5 percent of his passes (164-271) for 2,301 yards with 15 touchdown passses compared to just five interceptions. He has a strong trio of receivers in junior Willie Snead (51 receptions, 867 yards, 7 touchdowns), sophomore Jordan Williams (40-603, 5 TDs) and senior Jamill Smith (34-477, 2 TDs). “Keith and our receivers have really been clicking,” Lembo said. “We’re in year three, and our offensive skilled players have been the same. We do have a new offensive line.

Except for the interceptions, Hayes had a good game, completing 17 of 35 passes for 135 yards and one touchdown. West Noble let its running game speak for the offense as the Chargers carried the ball 45 times for 261 yards. Fremont put the first points on the scoreboard with some trickery early in the game. Jake Pelham was backed up to punt from his own 10-yard line, but instead he faked the kick and ended up running for a dramatic 86-yard touchdown that left the Chargers stunned. West Noble stopped the two-point conversion run and Fremont led 6-0 with 9:04 left in the quarter. On the kickoff, Fremont tried an onside kick that at first appeared to be covered by the Eagles. But after a minute of conferencing, the

referees gave the ball to the Chargers with 8:53 left in the opening quarter. After a gaining some yards on the ground and Fremont getting flagged for two personal fouls, West Noble’s Payton Shrock found the endzone from 13 yards out for West Noble’s first touchdown. The point-after kick was wide and the quarter ended with the score tied at 6-6. Both teams scored touchdowns in the second quarter as the game was tied at halftime, 12-12. Late in the second quarter, Fremont’s Nate Beatty caught an 1 1-yard pass from Hayes for his team’s second TD of the night. The point-after pass was knocked down by the Chargers but Fremont led, 12-6. Then, with less than a minute to go before halftime, Nelson broke
loose for a 42-yard touchdown run for the Chargers, leaving the game knotted at 12-all. In the third quarter, Shrock intercepted Hayes deep in Charger territory, but West Noble turned the ball over on downs, giving Fremont a first-and-10 from the 35 with one minute to play in the quarter. Fremont was driving and on a fourth-and-six from the 15-yard line, West Noble’s Kyler Warble picked off Hayes to give his team the ball on their own 22-yard line. Nelson then picked up 37 yards for the Chargers, who were forced to punt. Joe Lee’s punt was downed at the Fremont one-yard line by the Chargers with 7:12 left in the game, and the score still tied at 12-12. Fremont wasn’t able to do much and punted the
ball back to the Chargers who started their drive on the Fremont 32-yard line. On a second-and-13 from the 14-yard line, West Noble quarterback Waylon Richardson hit Brandon Moser with a touchdown pass, and the point-after kick was good for a 19-12 West Noble lead with 4:09 to play in the game. On Fremont’s next possession the Eagles were able to move the ball. Ryan Sichling caught an eight-yard pass from Hayes, who then picked up another first down on the ground for Fremont. That put the ball on the 37-yard line, but on the next play, Wechter made his big interception, leading to the final two West Noble touchdowns. Fremont must regroup for its sectional game on Friday. The Eagles will be home against Southwood.
“The score wasn’t probably what people hoped. But this win is for the seniors. It’s a testament to their investment over the last four years. A lot of guys made key plays.” Gardner, a junior, ran for 141 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries. He scored from 58 yards out on the third offensive play of the game. Yates feels good about his team heading into its Class 2A sectional home game with Woodlan next week. “We made mistakes. We gave up some big plays. But I’m proud of the way our guys battled,” Yates said. “With a one-win team, you’re not sure how week nine will turn out. But we fought back and showed character and effort certain teams may not have this late in the season.” Deck ran for 174 yards on 26 carries. He had a 47-yard touchdown run with 4:29 left in the opening quarter. “Garren is an athlete,” Yates said. “He has some
speed and has gotten better as the season went on.” Noe added a 29-yard touchdown pass to Joel Cochard late in the second quarter. Angola, who wore pink socks in tribute to those fighting breast cancer, had 14 points off turnovers in taking a 21-12 halftime lead. Belcher recovered a fumble and returned it 68 yards for a touchdown late in the first quarter. After a Spears interception, Roddy found senior Brandon Spaulding wide open for a 29-yard touchdown pass in the final minute of the second quarter. The Hornets now have to get themselves mentally together for their 4A sectional first-round game when they host winless DeKalb this coming Friday. The Barons lost at home 79-7 to Class 6A power Carroll last night. “The nice thing about a week nine game is that we start over,” Schoeff said. “We’re 0-0. They’re 0-0 fighting for everything they want. That will be our focus heading into this week.”
PANTHERS: Prairie Heights will face winless Wabash next week FROM PAGE B1
The first score was set up when Dean caught a Conner Dove pass for 78 yards to the Panther three, scoring three plays later with 1:29 left. After a Prairie Heights three-and-out, in large part due to a bad snap that cost the visitors 11 yards, Eastside got the ball back at its 36 with 22 seconds to go. That proved to be just enough time, as Dove found a streaking Ty Lockhart along the Eastside sideline for a 52-yard touchdown pass three plays later. The Panthers reached the end zone late in the third quarter as West scored from the one after a personal foul penalty against Eastside gave the
visitors the ball at the Blazer 31. Early in the final quarter, Eastside’s Kadis Renier broke loose for an 87-yard touchdown run. The Panthers answered with a one-yard run by Johnson with 3:16 to play. A booming punt downed at the Panther one set up the game’s final score, when Eastside’s Ryan Liechty recovered a fumble in the end zone with 20 seconds to play. Renier led Eastside with 143 yards rushing on six carries. Dove completed 3-of-7 passes for 133 yards and a touchdown. Dylan Stayner led Prairie Heights with 63 yards rushing on 13 attempts. West completed just 4-of-17 passes, but threw for 91 yards.

Detroit Tigers’ Jhonny Peralta runs the bases during Game 1 of the American League championship series.
shortstop Jose Iglesias from Boston shortly before the suspension. Eligible for free agency after the World Series, Peralta returned for a three-game series at the Miami Marlins as Detroit closed the regular season. That didn’t leave him much time to prepare for any playoff games. He had gone to the Dominican Republic
to try to stay in shape during the suspension, then spent some time in the instructional league. As they closed in on their third straight AL Central title, the Tigers said they’d give Peralta a chance to earn a spot on the postseason roster. Because Iglesias had impressed as the new shortstop, Detroit said Peralta would have to
learn to play left field. “It was a cram course,” said manager Jim Leyland, who has used Peralta at shortstop and left field during these playoffs. “I don’t know how this is happening. I’m not sure he’s totally comfortable in left field yet. I’d be lying if I said I was totally comfortable with him in left field yet.” But with Miguel Cabrera hobbled and Prince Fielder struggling, the Tigers have needed offense in this postseason, and Peralta has provided it. In Game 4 of the AL division series against Oakland, Detroit trailed 3-0 and was facing elimination when Peralta connected for a three-run homer in the fifth inning — perhaps the biggest swing of the playoffs for the Tigers so far. Detroit went on to win that series in five games. Now the Tigers trail the AL championship series 3-2, with Game 6 at Boston set for Saturday. Peralta’s RBI single brought home the only run of Game 1 against the Red Sox. He’s hitting .367 this postseason, with four doubles to go along with that big home run. “Instructional league
SPORTS BRIEFS • Bears’ Tillman, Martellus Bennett questionable LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman and tight end Martellus Bennett are questionable for Sunday’s game at Washington. Both were limited in practice on Friday because of knee problems. The Bears elevated linebacker Jerry Franklin to the active roster from the practice squad and placed middle linebacker D.J. Williams on injured reserve. Williams, signed in the offseason to help replace Brian Urlacher, ruptured his left pectoral muscle tendon against the New York Giants on Oct. 10.
NASCAR announces Nationwide schedule for 2014 TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — NASCAR announced a 33-race schedule for the 2014 Nationwide Series with virtually no changes from this year’s slate.

Peralta gives Tigers a lift after suspension DETROIT (AP) — Jhonny Peralta is trying to make the most of a second chance with the Detroit Tigers that was far from guaranteed. The Detroit portion of Peralta’s career looked like it might be over when he was suspended 50 games on Aug. 5 following Major League Baseball’s investigation of the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic. Despite the long layoff, he’s been able to contribute in the postseason, saving the Tigers with a big home run in the division series and adding needed power to the lineup. Peralta’s return has raised the usual questions about doping in baseball and whether his punishment was harsh enough. The Tigers are happy to have him back, whether he’s at shortstop or in the outfield. “I think I have a new life, a new opportunity,” Peralta said. “It’s important, how Detroit gave me the opportunity to come back here. I appreciate everything.” Peralta was in the middle of a fine season when his suspension began. The Tigers had anticipated his absence, acquiring smooth-fielding

For me, I have seen this town. By the time it was all said on the gardening side as well. A and done, there were closer to 100 Day of Caring here in DeKalb pieces of farm equipment along County is a great example of
this. Businesses and individuals willing to spend some time with homeowners cleaning up and beautifying their homes without anything asked in return. Others are more than happy to share the bounty of their vegetable harvests or spread some of the beauty from their own gardens when they divide and split flowers, shrubs, and grasses. This willingness to share and lend a helping hand when needed is what I love about living in a farming community in the Midwest. My sister and my new brotherin-law live in Ann Arbor, Mich., and while they love living there with the hustle and bustle of the city and the convenience of close stores and things to do, I only enjoy visiting larger cities for a few hours at a time, and then
relish in the return to my home to do chores in the mornings and evenings. To me it is always a form of stress relief to work in my gardens, harvest vegetables I have worked all summer for, feed a new batch of baby calves, milk “my” goats by hand, and even catch one of my roosters (I have two that, for some unknown reason, I decided to name) to have him sit in my lap. Each day brings a new adventure and laugh with antics the animals are up to. From our young dog herding her chickens each night to their roosts, to going on an egg hunt every night looking for our three dozen eggs the hens are laying, to putting in a hard day’s work baling and unloading wagon upon wagon load of hay or straw.
The country life and values are something I grew up with, and I hope to one day to instill those same values in my stepchildren and children of my own. I would just like to leave you with this quote for the week: “You know rural Americans are special people. Their labor puts food on the table and gas in our tanks. Their service in the military sets a powerful example of leadership, honor, and sacrifice (16 percent of our population is rural, but 40 percent of our military is rural). Their spirit of unity inspires us all.” — Tom Vilsack, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture. ELYSIA RODGERS is the agriculture and natural resources director for the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service in DeKalb County.

Pumkin growers report good crop WEST LAFAYETTE — Indiana pumpkin producers overall were happy with production yield and prices this year, even with “two seasons” of drastically differing weather during the summer, a Purdue University plant pathologist says. Dan Egel said it was an average year for pumpkin production, with the first half of the season wet and the second half dry. “The first half of the summer was good for providing moisture for the pumpkins, and most pumpkins are not irrigated,” Egel said. “In the second half of the season, some of the pumpkins on well-drained land lost yield because of the dry weather.” The wet weather brought disease problems to some pumpkin fields, particularly Phytophthora blight, which can kill plants and cause
fruit rot. The disease largely was held in check, however, when the weather turned dry. Consumers should not have a problem finding good-quality Indiana pumpkins. Egel said that when picking out a pumpkin, shoppers should look for one that doesn’t have any soft spots, which could lead to rot. They can do that by running their hands over the pumpkin to feel for them. A healthy pumpkin’s stem should be as thick and green as possible, rather than thin and brown. A green stem indicates a fresher pumpkin; a brown stem indicates the pumpkin was harvested too long ago. “All pumpkins are unique,” Egel said. “Don’t be afraid to buy a pumpkin with an odd shape or bumpy exterior. If you like the way it looks, take it home.”

Old-fashioned harvest There’s all types of harvesting going on in northeast Indiana, and these Steuben
County farmers use a method that doesn’t concern itself with the price of fuel.
WEST LAFAYETTE — Purdue University researchers are leading an effort to develop a nationwide, unified system for storing and making available to the public the abundance of research data that could help the agricultural industry and policymakers not only now but also many years in the future. Sylvie Brouder, a professor of agronomy, and five other Purdue agricultural and library sciences faculty and staff members organized a meeting in Potomac, Md., Oct. 10-11 to identify concrete steps for developing an online system for open-access agricultural data. A statement on the challenges and opportunities from the perspectives of workshop participants is being composed.
Grain handling specialist offers tips for protecting stored grain is being loaded into a bin, farmers need to use loading methods that minimize broken kernels and fine material and remove foreign material. Leaving broken kernels, fines and foreign material can make stored grain more susceptible to insect infestation, mold and spoilage because it reduces initial grain quality and aeration efficiency. According to Purdue Extension’s Agricultural Safety Program, out-of-condition grain is the most frequent cause of grain entrapments and engulfment. “Cleaning grain and coring the bin to remove fines, leveling binned grain and using appropriate drying and handling methods all reduce broken kernels and fines, and reduce the chance you will need to enter the bin when you unload the grain,” Ileleji said. • Aeration: This is the method of cooling grain with ambient air after drying it to decrease insect activity and mold development. Growers need to run bin fans to reduce grain temperature to below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and maintain cool temperatures into the late spring and summer. Using exhaust vents also will help control condensation on the inside roof and headspace walls of grain bins. • Monitor: Farmers need
WEST LAFAYETTE — The lowest corn prices in recent years mean farmers are likely to store a large portion of the crop on the farm into the late spring or summer of 2014, a Purdue Extension grain handling specialist says. Anytime growers decide to put corn into storage, and especially when they plan to store it for several months, they need to manage the grain properly to keep it from spoiling. That includes drying corn to a safer moisture level when it comes out of the field and then properly cleaning, loading, aerating and monitoring it. “This will require adequately drying to 14 to 14.5 percent for long-term storage,” Klein Ileleji said. “Think of grain in the bin as cash in the bank. Without good management, this cash can go out of condition, quickly eroding your investment.” Ileleji offered some tips for farmers to keep their grain in top shape: • Sanitation: Growers need to remove all of the food sources and harboring spots for rodents and insects around their storage facilities. This includes cleaning up grain spills and mowing surrounding vegetation. It also means cleaning handling equipment, including augers, cleaners and dryers, at the end of each use. • Loading: When grain

to monitor their stored grain at a frequency determined by the initial grain quality, moisture content, temperature and whether there has been extreme weather. The higher the ambient temperature, the more frequently bins should be checked. In fall, spring and summer, they need to be checked every 1-2 weeks. In winter, that can be reduced to once a month. When checking stored grain, growers with temperature cables should monitor for gradual temperature increases over time, rather than absolute temperature. If there are no temperature cables or CO2 sensors available, Ileleji said the smell of spoilage when fans are running is a good indicator that there’s a problem. “Keep detailed records with dates and what was monitored,” he said. “Remember, it is the trends in data that help diagnose a problem and not the data collected at a given time.” Purdue Extension offers a grain management bulletin through The Education Store. The two-page publication, Maximizing Grain Quality and Profits, (ID-207) can be downloaded for free, online, at purdue.edu/item. It offers information about post-harvest integrated pest management strategy to preserve grain quality.

Longing to be a victim These days, being seen as a victim can be useful. You immediately claim the moral high ground. Some people want to help you. Lawyers and politicians brag that they force others to help you. This turns some people into whiners with little sense of responsibility. Joe Biden’s niece was arrested recently for throwing a punch at a cop. The New Post says she’s addicted JOHN York to alcohol and pills, but rather than take responsibility for STOSSEL her actions, she blamed them on the “pressure she faces” because her uncle is vice president. Give me a break. America was founded by people who were the opposite of victims, by people with grit. Overcoming obstacles is the route to prosperity — and happiness, too. I had to overcome stuttering to work as a TV reporter. Had today’s disability laws existed when I began work, would I have overcome my stuttering Despite improved problem? medical care and the Maybe not. I might have workforce’s dramatic demanded shift from physical my employer “accommoto mental labor, the date” my number of Americans disability by providing claiming disability keeps me a job growing. that didn’t demand being on-air. Now that the laws exist, it’s no coincidence that more Americans say they are disabled. Tad DeHaven of the Cato Institute writes that this is part of a disability-industrial complex: collusion between specialty law firms, doctors vouching for applicants with dubious claims and federal administrative law judges awarding benefits. It changes the way people calculate their options. Despite improved medical care and the workforce’s dramatic shift from physical to mental labor, the number of Americans claiming disability keeps growing. You start to feel like a sucker if you’re not one of them. On my TV show, DeHaven said today even poor parents “try to get their kids on psychotropic medications in hopes of qualifying for a check that goes to Dad and Mom.” Since the 1980s, there has been a 300 percent increase in disability claims for hard-to-prove illnesses like back pain, stress and other “non-exertional restrictions.” Over the past two decades, the number of people receiving Social Security disability benefits grew from 4 million to 11 million. “It’s like any other government program,” says DeHaven. “You start off with good intentions and then it becomes something that it was never supposed to be.” We all want to help the genuinely disabled, but a wide range of subjective ailments are affected by attitude. Labeling people victims, telling them they need help, teaches some to think like victims. Social scientists call that “learned helplessness.” Private charities are pretty good at separating real victims from malingerers. But government is not. Its one-size-fits-all rules encourage people to act like victims. Whether people have real physical ailments or just see the economic deck stacked against them, the most damaging thing say to them is: Give up. You can’t make it on your own. Wait for help. Pessimism changes what we think is possible. It shrinks our horizons. We in the media keep an eye out for people who are victimized. Sometimes that’s a valuable service. But it often means looking for victims when they really aren’t there. This makes reporters feel like heroes — noble sentries protecting the powerless. Even the newly crowned Miss America, Nina Davuluri, who sure seems like a winner by conventional standards, was portrayed as a victim in many news stories. Since she’s the first Miss America of Indian descent, some trolls on Twitter made racist remarks. But skeptical writer Gavin McInnes did a little digging. He found those racist Twitter users were almost certainly just irresponsible little kids. One of the media’s most quoted tweets, “You look like a terrorist,” was sent by a Twitter user with zero followers. If millions of people are familiar with that remark now — and some Americans grow up a little bit more frightened that they will be victimized — it will be largely because media hyped racism rather than because of the handful of racists themselves. America is full of success stories. But if we obsess over stories about victimhood, that is what we’ll get.

Letter To The Editor • Kendallville resident announces candidacy for U.S. House of Representatives. To the editor: Hello, KPC readers. I’d like to take the time to introduce myself, a 2014 Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives. I am Justin Kuhnle. I’m 33 and currently employed at Bowen Center at the Albion office. I have worked in the mental health field for the past six years.
Prior to this, I was employed in the retail field in home improvement. I have graduated from Purdue University in OLS, and have gone to school for psychology and human services at IPFW and Ivy Tech. I came to the realization that our current representative in the U.S. House has been more focused in furthering his career than the citizens he represents. I work tirelessly for my clients now, and I’m now stepping up to work tirelessly for our citizens.
I stand on a platform motto of “Strong Families. Strong Future. Believe.” I stand for investing in education and our work force, sustainable retirement, reducing waste, increasing efficiency in government spending and finding ways to make health care affordable for all. I will fight for the citizens I represent and, unlike Stutzman, will put the interest of everyone ahead of the interests of myself. Justin Kuhnle Kendallville
OK, writers; it’s time for the annual novel exercise It’s dark, very dark. I stumble down the stairs and blindly grind beans for coffee. The sound is loud and begins to wake me up. I put the beans in the pot, add water and turn on the coffee pot. I head to the studio, turn on the lights, plug in the heater and open up the laptop. Yesterday’s words are written: villains, heroes, ladies in distress, shadows, windy roads, dark nights, or rag pickers. The first mug of coffee drowns out the last of the sleep and my fingers fly over the keyboard. I am lost in my story and after an hour my word count is over a thousand words. “Keep going,” I say to myself, “600 more words.” I continue and, with a flourish, finish the last hundred words. My words are saved and the story swirls in cyberspace waiting for the morrow. It is still dark outside. Good. I can now begin my regular day. My column, you ask? Could it be I have a paid job from The New Yorker? No and no! I am part of National Novel Writing Month which will begin November 1. The above narrative is how it will be on Nov. 1. I am going to write a novel in 30 days. The total word count by Nov. 1 will be 50,000 words. I did the math and that comes to writing 1,667 words per day. Actually if I do that I will have an extra 10 words, but that seems meaningless at this point. This is my third year in attempting to write the novel. I start prolifically, sitting in the studio with my long-sleeved black T-shirt that has a picture of an old typewriter on it. (I do wear it every
morning for good luck.) The first week is great and then somebody arrives on my front porch, or as I now say, under my lintel. I cannot pass up on conversation so there goes the night’s sleep. In the morning I hit the alarm too many times and there is no time for writing. But I can catch up. Right? So I miss one day. I just have to write 3,334 words the next day. A couple of years ago I wrote the story of “Windy Hill Farm” and actually got through that one. I made of the rough draft LOU ANN copies and gave them to the boys Christmas. Last year HOMAN- for I lost November after the first week of writing. SAYLOR Ah, but we come to the beginning of “NaNoWriMo” for this year, and I am ready to go. I even ordered two bracelets that say “30 Days 50K Words.” These bracelets have a 2GB USB attachment so I can carry my story with me everywhere I travel. (Beware if I am invited to your house as I might just take off that bracelet and get to work or read it to you!) The biggest problem is finding a writing partner. There are 900 participants (well there were last year) in Fort Wayne. On the sign up form I wrote Angola, Indiana and searched for a group near me.
We are not easy to find as the site tried to sign me up to countries in Africa. I found out Egypt has 3,512 writers, Kenya 226, or Tanzania 167. While it seems tempting to belong to the group in Tanzania, I would prefer to share my thoughts in my hometown. Can you see where this is going? I am putting forth an invitation for someone or several folks to join me in this project. The web site is easy to navigate and think how much fun we will have sharing our word count every day. Maybe we could have an evening or two of bringing our laptops together and writing as a group. Let me make it clear that this project is a free-write, letting characters write their own script. During the month there is no time for correcting, that can all come later. And you never have to share your work unless you want to. Why should you join me? Well, the first one to sign up will get my other bracelet (I ordered two!), you will enjoy early morning stars, and coffee tastes great in the predawn. Or how about this; you always wanted to write a novel, a memoir, or a story. If that isn’t enough, you can know that in our town someone else is writing under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp. 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 • Mitch Daniels and the political trip wire Purdue University President Mitch Daniels’ defenders are correct when they say there’s a faction on campus that probably will forever lock in on the notion that a political tiger can’t change his stripes. And the defenders are correct that Daniels shouldn’t get hung up on that. So much of what he’s doing on campus is shaking Purdue up in the right way. But for the rest — those who were willing to give the governor-turned-university president a fair shake — Daniels gave a metric and told people to hold him to it: Partisan politics stopped in June 2012, the day he was announced as the next Purdue president. So why would Daniels tempt fate by walking so close to a political trip wire? This week, Daniels flew to Minneapolis to give a talk to a conservative think tank called the Center of the American Experiment. His audience — the group says its “aim is nothing less than shifting Minnesota’s intellectual
and political center of gravity to the right” — by itself, is not a concern. The topic, and why Daniels is broaching it now, is. The particulars of his speech aren’t clear. Daniels and those who were there aren’t sharing. But Monday’s fundraiser, which included the chance to donate to get photo ops or dinner with Daniels, was touted as a discussion of what Daniels did as governor to cut taxes and preserve state finances. The center’s promo for the event looked forward to Daniels’ advice “for what Minnesotans might hope leads to a few teachable moments in St. Paul.” You could say Daniels was steering clear of his partisan past if he’d gone to any group — with any political lean — to tell about Purdue’s role in higher education or some other campus-related topic. But here the conversation was his time as governor — a time in his career for which he makes no apologies. “Look, I had a job that required me to — wait, it didn’t require me, but I chose to — take clear stances on a thousand issues,” Daniels told the J&C in July, when he was fending off controversy over emails
he wrote as governor about keeping the work of historian Howard Zinn out of Indiana’s public schools. That led to reaffirmation of his promise to separate his political past from his university future. “The pledge I took (when named Purdue president), first of all, was to forsake anything partisan — which I have done, without exception — and to stay out of public issues that could be construed that way,” Daniels said in July. “And I think I’ve been faithful to that.” Purdue’s trustees told J&C reporter Hayleigh Colombo they aren’t concerned with Monday’s paid speaking engagement. They say they have an arrangement with Daniels so if he’s paid to make an appearance, that counts as personal time. They even say they are OK with Daniels using Purdue’s jet to hit those personal time speaking engagements, if it means he can get back to Purdue business sooner. So Daniels is in the clear with his immediate bosses. Outside of that, the verdict isn’t as clear. Daniels wastes the good will offered by the likes of professor David Williams, chairman of the University Senate.
In September, Williams called out skeptical faculty and asked them to lay down arms in an “undeclared ideological war.” His point: Give Daniels some breathing room and space to work. Williams’ truce, though, was predicated on Daniels keeping his focus on the university and not on the politics of right-to-work laws or whatever was covered in Minneapolis. Daniels says he understands the meaning of appearances. This is the same guy who swore off lobbying at the Statehouse for a year, just so things didn’t look out of place with revolving door, lawmaker-to-lobbyist policies he put into place as governor. But his career at Purdue, 10 months in now, will continue to be questioned and pulled down whenever he steps, however innocently, onto political turf. The ultimate metric that matters here is: When does Mitch Daniels become known as Purdue president, not the former governor of Indiana? With this week’s speaking engagement, he didn’t help himself in that category. Journal & Courier, Lafayette

Jailed dad loses contact with daughter’s mom DEAR ABBY: I am 20 years old and in jail. My ex-girlfriend recently had a baby. I left her during her pregnancy. We had been together for two years, but things just weren’t working. I told her I still wanted to be in my daughter’s life after she had the baby, but she left and went to North Carolina. After I was incarcerated, I lost contact with her. She said I can be a part of my daughter’s life only if we have a family and get back together. I’m willing to do that, but I won’t be out of jail for five more months, and I have no way to contact her. How do I go about it, Abby? — LOVES MY BABY GIRL DEAR LOVES: When your ex said what she did, she was using the baby to manipulate you into doing what she wanted. Because your relationship “wasn’t working,” I would caution you against having any more children with her.

DEAR ABBY: My kindhearted, loving motherin-law would do anything for me. She has lived in an in-law apartment attached to our home for 20 years. She and my father-in-law — God rest his soul — were a huge help when our children were
growing up. The kids are gone now, and my husband and I would like to sell our home and move to something smaller. Would it be awful of us to make her move? She is 88. She has a loud and adamantsounding voice, so it would not be in our best interest to have her move with us. — DAUGHTER-IN-LAW DEAR DAUGHTERIN-LAW: Yes, it would be awful. It almost appears you took advantage of her for baby-sitting purposes, but now that the children are grown, she is no longer useful. While it may not be “in your interest” to have her move with you, it may be extremely difficult for her to adjust to a new living situation at her age.

People get PCL injuries when their knee is flexed (like when you are seated) and the large bone of the lower leg is hit hard. For example, a person might be seated in the front
seat of a car. If the car is in an accident and the person’s lower leg smashes into the dashboard, that could cause the injury. Usually, people with a sudden new PCL injury notice less of a problem with the knee than people with a new ACL injury, at least at first. Treatment of all PCL sprains should begin with RICE: • Rest the joint. • Ice the injured area to reduce swelling. • Compress the swelling with an elastic bandage. • Elevate the injured area. Your doctor may also recommend a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), such as ibuprofen, to relieve mild pain or swelling. Further treatment depends on the severity of your injury.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I injured my PCL playing football. How long will my recovery take? DEAR READER: Let’s start with some knee anatomy. The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are two tough bands of fibrous tissue. The ACL is injured more often than the PCL, which is why many people have heard of the ACL but not the PCL. The ACL and PCL connect the thighbone (femur) and the large bone of the lower leg (tibia) at the knee joint. The ACL and PCL form an “X” pattern that stabilizes the knee against front-to-back and back-to-front forces. A PCL injury is a sprain — a stretch or tear of the ligament. PCL sprains are classified as follows. • Grade I: a mild injury
When you are released, she may come after you for child support, or if she applies for benefits in North Carolina, the state may do that. That would be one way of pinpointing where she is. If you can’t locate her any other way, you DEAR may have to ABBY hire a private detective when you afford Jeanne Phillips can one.
your knee may be splinted in a straight-leg position, and you’ll begin an intense rehabilitation program. Rehab gradually strengthens the muscles around the knee, supports the knee joint and helps protect the knee from re-injury. If you have a Grade III sprain and the PCL has been pulled away from the bone, it may have to be surgically reattached with a screw. If your PCL has torn completely, it can be surgically reconstructed. Full recovery can take from four months to a year. How long your specific injury lasts will depend on the severity of your PCL injury and your rehabilitation program. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.
