Food pantries help fill gap BY JENNIFER DECKER

Local food pantries are bracing for a possible influx starting today. That’s when some 48 million people across the nation — including 21 million children — will experience major federal cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program’s food stamps. The SNAP benefits will drop by 7 percent — or $10 per person monthly — as a result of the 2009 stimulus ending. In fiscal 2012, the average benefit per person was about $133 monthly, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Under the cuts, that will mean a family of three will lose about $29 monthly in benefits. That is equal to buying 16 meals at “thrifty rates,” at $1.81 per meal. Dot Mazier, director of West Noble Food/Clothes Pantry in Ligonier, said she is trying to get ready. “We are always bracing,” she said. “Our numbers have increased. There’s never enough, and there will always be hunger.” Those numbers have increased at West Noble to 35-50 families served per month. Mazier said those in need simply do not receive enough food to last through the month. Wednesday, Mazier said she

had just returned from picking up food from Community Harvest, Fort Wayne. She never knows what she will bring back to Ligonier. “We take a truck. Some items, I pay 19 cents per pound. Today we got a lot of cereal, canned fruit, vegetables, apples, 200 pounds of meat — hamburger, pork chops, chicken thighs,” she said. “Today, I bought $27 worth of peanut butter.” Mazier said she also receives government commodities monthly, but she always makes sure to buy toilet paper for the needy, too — the only paper product she requests. She said all food pantries are hurting, but she does the best she can in volunteering at the pantry with two others. Patti Sheppard, director of the Community Center of Caring Food Pantry in Auburn, is ready to serve more people. “We haven’t received word yet” as to just how many, “ but we’re braced.” Sheppard noted her pantry has been relatively steady in providing basic food needs. Since 2005, her pantry has served a total of 114,805 individuals and 31,581 families. The same steadiness is true for Marsha Boyanowski, director of the food pantry at Pleasant Lake United Methodist Church in Steuben County. The number of people served there has been increasing

slowly, she said. “Starting last week, we were getting 15 more, knowing that some get $16 a month,” she said. “We average 70-75 families a week. Last week, we had 82.” Boyanowski said it’s likely the need for food only will get worse. “Luckily, we get fruits and vegetables. Last week, we got milk and yogurt,” she said, adding that she orders meat and sometimes receives it, but is limited to receiving only two or three boxes. Cheri Perkins, director of the LaGrange County Council on Aging, said cuts to food stamps would have little effect on senior citizens served there. The agency has a senior mart for those 60 and older who qualify, featuring food and other items that vary, such as laundry detergent. That food is also purchased from Community Harvest. She said All Cut Up, a LaGrange salon, recently donated more than 500 pounds of food with proceeds from a charity haunted house. The cuts come when reports say 49 million people — about 14.5 percent of all U.S. households — are food-insecure, meaning they lack money to meet their basic food needs. Reports say hunger is a reality for one in six people in the United States.

church, Lake Bethel Church, collected 94 pairs for the drive. Britanie Jernigan, junior, added that it’s nice the community and staff members chipped in like that. “I learned everyone’s in need — not just all over our country,” said Ashley Spinger, Leo Club treasurer. Leo Club president Amanda Miller, senior, was pleased with the project’s outcome and thinks it went better than last year’s drive. Tarnow noted some members of Leo Club qualify as recipients of the group’s projects. But that doesn’t stop them from giving back. The group is also doing three other endeavors. Operation Christmas Child, sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse, is winding down. Collection of items will continue until Tuesday. SEE SHOES, PAGE A10

WASHINGTON (AP) — Terrorists “found a second chance” to thrive in Iraq, the nation’s prime minister said Thursday in asking for new U.S. aid to beat back a bloody insurgency that has been fueled by the neighboring Syrian civil war and the departure of American troops from Iraq two years ago. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki told a packed auditorium at the U.S. Institute of Peace that he needs additional weapons, help with intelligence and other assistance, and claimed the world has a responsibility to help because terrorism is an international concern. “They carry their bad ideas everywhere,” al-Maliki said of terrorists. “They carry bad ideas instead of flowers.” The new request comes nearly two years after al-Maliki’s government refused to let U.S. forces remain in Iraq, after nearly nine years of war, with legal immunity that the Obama administration insisted was necessary to protect troops. The administration had campaigned on ending the war in Iraq and took the opportunity offered by the legal dispute to pull all troops out. Al-Maliki will meet Friday with President Barack Obama in what Baghdad hopes will be a fresh start in a complicated relationship that has been marked both by victories and frustrations for each side. Within months of the U.S. troops’ departure, violence began creeping up in the capital and across the country as Sunni Muslim insurgents, angered by a widespread belief that Sunnis had been sidelined by the Shiite-led government, lashed out. The State Department says at least 6,000 Iraqis have been killed in attacks so far this year, and suicide bombers launched 38 strikes in the last month alone. “So the terrorists found a second chance,” al-Maliki said

Leo Pride roars in ‘Soles for Souls’ BY JENNIFER DECKER

BRUSHY PRAIRIE — Zach Zimmer didn’t hesitate to donate some 30 pairs of his late grandmother’s shoes to “Soles for Souls.” The Prairie Heights High School senior lost his grandmother, Norma Beaty, two weeks ago. He gave her shoes to a drive the high school’s Leo Pride group conducted for the needy in Haiti. Zimmer said he was moved to act in memory of his grandmother by learning what Shari Tarnow, Leo Pride co-adviser, did. “Ms. Tarnow told me a story she donated her mom’s stuff” when she died, he said. Zimmer said he looks at his donation as a form of healing. “It’s getting better. It hurt giving her stuff away, but it

helped,” he said. Leo Pride is a civic-service organization of Lions Clubs International. Zimmer’s donation helped the 35-member group finish its “Soles for Souls” drive. The goal for the project was 500 pairs of new or gently used shoes. As of Thursday, members were unbagging shoes adding to a huge pile of 471 pairs that likely put the total at or above the goal. The drive was a lesson in compassion, as Leo Pride members talked about how meaningful they felt their efforts were. “I learned little Prairie Heights school can make a difference,” said Jessica Miller, senior, Leo Club vice president. Other members had the community get involved, as Maggie Franke, junior, said her

Region • Missing woman identified in case TERRE HAUTE(AP) — A body found with a man’s remains in rural western Indiana has been identified as that of a 58-year-old missing Terre Haute woman. Indiana State Police say they and the Vigo County coroner have positively identified the woman, Cynthia Davis, through DNA testing at the Indiana State Police Laboratory. Coroner Susan Amos previously had listed Davis’ cause of death as strangulation. Her family reported her missing on Oct. 16, three days before her body and that of 76-year-old Nevelland Thompson Jr. of Terre Haute were found under a small bridge on a driveway leading to an abandoned home in northwestern Vigo County. Thompson had last been seen on Oct. 10. His cause of death is pending.

Police say they believe Thompson and Davis were in a relationship.

Man cleared of killing family posts letter NEW ALBANY (AP) — A southern Indiana man acquitted of killing his wife and two children after spending 13 years in prison has written a letter to his supporters saying he feels blessed by God and is moving forward in his life. David Camm says in the emotional letter posted on Facebook late Wednesday that he doesn’t “want to be consumed by the past” and that “They, the State, are not going to take more from me than they … already have gotten.” A jury found the 49-yearold Floyd County man not guilty last week in his third murder trial in connection with the 2000 shooting deaths of his wife Kim and their children, 7-year-old Brad and 5-yearold Jill.

Indiana, Ohio officials share ideas on meth problem BY MATT GETTS

KENDALLVILLE — It’s not just Indiana’s problem. Methamphetamine is a scourge in neighboring states as well. Earlier this year, Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller met with his counterpart from Illinois to hash out possible enforcement strategies with officials from that state. Thursday at Parkview Noble Hospital in Kendallville, Zoeller joined with state Sen. Sue Glick, R-LaGrange, and Noble County Prosecuting Attorney Steve Clouse in hosting a similar summit with officials from Ohio. Following a short news conference, representatives from LaGrange, DeKalb, Steuben and Noble counties and the Indiana State Police joined officials from Ohio for a closed-door meeting at the hospital. Health care professionals were invited. That meeting was not open to the media or general public. In 2012, Noble and Kosciusko counties each had 47 clandestine meth

labs recovered by police, the highest counts in northeastern Indiana. Noble County’s number of labs increased from 37 in 2011, according to statistics provided by the state Attorney General’s Office. DeKalb County jumped from 12 labs recovered in 2011 to 24 labs in 2012. LaGrange County increased from 17 to 24. Steuben County had 29 labs recovered a year ago, compared to 15 the prior year. “These are problems we need to address collaboratively,” Zoeller said. “It takes a lot of resources away from local law enforcement.” The purpose of the meeting was to pool knowledge with officials from Ohio in the hopes of finding a solution, Zoeller said. “I’m here to listen and learn,” Glick said. “It’s a scourge on this area.” In a news release, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said his state also is dealing with a growing meth problem.

“In Ohio, we reached a record high of 881 meth labs this year, which is more than double the number we saw just two years ago,” DeWine said. “Since drugs don’t stop at state borders, working together is essential.” Zoeller said Indiana has enacted a range of measures concerning the sale of pseudoephedrine, the key ingredient used in making methamphetamine. In 2011, the Indiana General Assembly passed a law requiring retailers to submit ephedrine and pseudoephedrine sales information into the National Precursor Log Exchange, which is available to local law enforcement. The law also prohibits the sale of ephedrine to any individual exceeding 7.2 grams in a 30-day period. In 2010, legislators passed a law prohibiting a retailer from selling or the purchaser from buying more than 3.6 grams of ephedrine or pseudoephedrine in one day. During a brief question-

and-answer session, Clouse and Noble County Sheriff Doug Harp said they favor making pseudoephedrine and ephedrine available only by prescription, a measure some states such as Oregon have used to dramatically cut the number of small meth labs. “It’s a proven strategy in several states,” Harp said. Glick and Zoeller were asked if they favor making the key meth ingredient available only by prescription. Both declined to answer the question in a “yes” or “no” manner. Glick said several factors play into the decision. While making the ingredient illegal would diminish the number of homemade meth labs, she said, it would only lead to Mexican drug cartels moving in to fill the void. She also said it would be “a very harsh decision to make,” since law-abiding citizens would have to get prescriptions for a common cold remedy. Zoeller said he did not feel comfortable coming out publicly as if he were telling state legislators whether

or not to make ephedrine available only by prescription. He said he might be swayed if the legislation passed in 2010 and 2011

proves ineffective or if a neighboring state decides first to make ephedrine available by prescription only.

Toronto police have video of mayor with crack pipe TORONTO (AP) — Toronto police said Thursday they have obtained a video that appears to show Mayor Rob Ford smoking a crack pipe — a video that Ford had claimed didn’t exist and has been at the core of a scandal that has embarrassed and

gripped Canada for months. Police Chief Bill Blair said the video, recovered after being deleted from a computer hard drive, did not provide grounds to press charges. Ford, a populist mayor who has repeatedly made headlines for his bizarre behavior, vowed not

to resign. Speaking outside his office door, Ford said with a smile: “I have no reason to resign.” He said he couldn’t defend himself because the affair is part of a criminal investigation involving an associate, adding: “That’s all I can say right now.”

Toronto police conducted a huge surveillance operation into a friend and sometimes driver suspected of providing Ford with drugs. The scandal has been the fodder of jokes on U.S. late night television and has cast Canada’s largest city and financial capital in an unflat-

tering light. Ford faced allegations in May that he had been caught on video puffing from a glass crack pipe. Two reporters with the Toronto Star said they saw the video, but it has not been released publicly. Ford maintained he does not

smoke crack and that the video does not exist. Ford was elected mayor three years ago on a wave of discontent simmering in the city’s outlying suburbs. Since then he has survived an attempt to remove him from office on conflict-ofinterest charges.

Volunteers and officials dig graves to inter the bodies of migrants who died of thirst after their the truck they were traveling in, seen rear, broke down while attempting to cross the Sahara Desert north of Arlit, Niger. Nearly 100 African migrants hoping to escape crushing poverty met a grisly end in the desert, officials said Thursday. It took weeks for authorities to learn of the tragedy and for recovery teams to reach the distant site, where they found a gruesome scene including the remains of 52 children and 33 women.

Official: 92 bodies of migrants found in Niger DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — Nearly 100 African migrants hoping to escape crushing poverty met a grisly end in the desert, officials said Thursday, dying of thirst under the baking sun after their two trucks broke down in the middle of the Sahara before reaching Algeria. It took weeks for authorities to learn of the tragedy and for recovery teams to reach the distant site, where they found a gruesome scene including the remains of 52 children and 33 women. “It was horrific. We found badly decomposing bodies and others that had been eaten by jackals,” said Almoustapha Alhacen, the head of a nonprofit organization in northern Niger that helped bury the bodies and who was at the site Wednesday. “We found the bodies of small children who were huddled beside their dead mothers.” The victims were spread out across a 12-mile (20-kilometer) radius, suggesting they had set off on foot but failed to head in the direction of the Algerian border just 6 miles (10 kilometers) away, he added. The tragedy is the latest to shed light on the perils of illegal migration. In early October, at least 365 migrants drowned when a boat capsized near the Italian island of Lampedusa, which is closer to North Africa than to the European mainland. The migrants in Niger had begun their journey late last month in two trucks and were being smuggled along a well-established trafficking route to neighboring Algeria, said Col. Garba Makido the governor of Niger’s Agadez province, south of where the bodies were found. From Algeria, many continue on in hopes of crossing from North Africa to southern Europe. While nearly all who take this desert route are economic migrants, it was not immediately clear why so many women and children were among the victims. Officials were alerted to the migrant deaths only when a lone woman managed to

stumble out of the desert into the Nigerien town of Arlit earlier this month. The next day, a father walking with his two young daughters also arrived. But his children perished of thirst just a few kilometers (miles) outside Arlit, Makido said. A total of 92 people died and 21 survived, most of whom made their way to towns at the Algerian border. “This is a true tragedy,” the governor said. “The prosecutor has opened an investigation and we plan to do everything we can to find the truck drivers.” First word of the disaster came Monday when officials reported that 35 people died but the death toll rose when more bodies were recovered from the desert. The tract of land that runs across the continent just south of the vast Sahara desert has for decades been the province of smugglers and criminals, including the local chapter of al-Qaida. Tens of thousands of West African migrants attempting to reach Europe each year have tapped into this perilous route, after authorities cracked down on sea routes via the Atlantic Ocean. They travel from countries across West Africa to the Nigerien city of Agadez where they pay smugglers as much as $3,000 for transport to Europe. Migrants are ferried across the ocean of sand in rickety trucks, braving one of the harshest landscapes on earth for a chance at reaching Europe. They are willing to risk death because few meet the criteria for even a tourist visa much less have the money to travel to Europe by plane. Once in Europe, they hope to work illegally and eke out a living with enough left over to send money back to their families in Africa. The landlocked nation of Niger is one of the world’s poorest countries, and ranks last on the 2013 Human Development Index that measures criteria such as life expectancy and income.

Honey, I shrunk the kids BY PAUL BECKWITH

When our daughters were little girls we could dress them in funny clothes. They are older now and can select their own outfits, so we pose them in front of funny giant roadside attractions for laughs.

Spud Drive-In Theatre, Driggs, Idaho We were lost after crossing the Teton Mountains out of Wyoming. On the bed of the truck “Old Murphy” is a potato. Don’t bother with butter, sour cream, salt and pepper. It is made of concrete. It is not the largest tater in the state. Some potato museum tuber holds that honor.

Frying Pan, Long Beach, Wash. We were eating clams at Captain Bob’s Chowder and looked across the street. The frying pan, forged in 1941 for the town’s Razor Clam Festival, is 9 feet, 6 inches in diameter. There is a statue of Lewis and Clark at Long Beach, and had the frying pan been there in 1803, they would have their photograph taken with it. The pan is no longer functional and is no longer the world’s biggest.

Prairie Dog, Cactus Flat, S.D. After a mesmerizing tour through the Badlands, dazzled by the reds, yellows, greens, the layers, the bedding, the bands, the layering, and the shadows in this unworldly landscape, we whipped the car into the gravel parking lot after spotting this beast. There is a prairie dog town where tourists can feed the dawgs. This big old one could really chow.

than the Jolly Green Giant? The JGG is the Holy Grail of large roadside attractions. We visited him as the sun set in the Valley of the Jolly after a dinner at the Beantown Grill. Road construction made the trip an adventure but at 55 feet tall and six feet long shoes — size 78 — he wasn’t hard to find. He stands watching over a pleasant park. We waited long enough for a toddler and his family to check it out. “There he is! I can see him!” he squealed as he dashed full tilt to the King of Chlorophyll.


Paul Beckwith and his wife, Elaine, stand with what was once the world’s largest frying pan in Washington.

Cheese and Sausage Man, Portage, Wis. We drove through Wisconsin, home of the signs, Cheese, Beer and Bait. The engine was running on fumes. Sometimes you just get lucky. We stopped at a gas station where we were greeted by a big guy resembling Jethro Bodine holding a hunk of cheese and a sausage. Our girls were sleeping and thought that they were home safe without having to pose for yet another photograph. They were wrong.

Convicted mobster hoping for a hit with New Jersey eatery COLLINGSWOOD, N.J. (AP) — When he was on trial for racketeering back in 2001, Angelo Lutz denied the mob’s existence, but now he’s using his past in organized crime to promote his new restaurant, the Kitchen Consigliere. The sign out front echoes the logo for “The Godfather” but with a chef’s hat. A mural on one wall puts Lutz, also known as Fat Ange, at a table with famous gangsters, both real (John Gotti) and fictional (Tony Soprano). Sconces to hold lights look like 9 mm handguns. And some nights, he serves up a special he calls Joey’s Pork Chops, in honor of Joseph “Skinny Joey” Merlino, the reputed Philadelphia-South Jersey mob boss. He’s also happy to tell customers stories from his past. Lutz is using some unsavory associations as he attempts a transformation from inmate to opinionated celebrity chef. Last week, he moved his operations from an 11-table restaurant to one three times as large on a prominent corner of the hip, foodie-friendly Philadelphia suburb of Collingswood. “I never considered myself a gangster. I’m not a gangster. The government considered me a gangster. The government considered me a mob associate,” he said. “But what I am now is a businessman.” Lutz, 49, grew up in South Philadelphia, where food was a big part of his life. According to federal prosecutors and a jury, he also did some bad along the way. He was one of seven

men convicted in a 2001 mob trial that made him a celebrity. He was the only non-“made” member of La Costa Nostra in the case and the only defendant allowed bail during the trial. And he talked and talked while he was out, calling into a sports-talk radio show and cooking steaks for a TV news reporter. The government said Lutz was a bookie and debt collector for the Mafia. Although he wasn’t violent, he was sentenced to nine years in prison but later got nearly a year knocked off on appeal. The night before he entered prison, he cooked for his own going-away party, leading one TV reporter to call him “the

kitchen consigliere.” “I then served my time like a man, didn’t rat, didn’t snitch, you know, took the medicine that went along with when you break the law,” he said from the section of his restaurant that pays tribute to Frank Sinatra and his Rat Pack. In prison, he grew to well over 400 pounds and learned more about cooking, including how to use a microwave to bake a pizza made from flour stolen from the kitchen. When he got out in 2008, Lutz did some online cooking shows before opening his first restaurant in Collingswood. But when it came time to move to bigger digs, there was a problem: “I couldn’t get conventional

bank loans because I’m a felon. I broke the law,” he said, slapping his arm. “Shame on you forever, for life.” He raised nearly $100,000 for renovations from investors and crowd-funding for his restaurant, which features home-style Italian classics. Lutz doesn’t want to stop with his Collingswood restaurant. He has designs on opening franchises of his restaurant in other cities known for their gangsters, licensing products with his brand, starring in a reality TV show and starting a foundation to help other ex-inmates become entrepreneurs. “Redemption,” he said. “That’s what I’m all about now.”

was time to end the Sookie books, which inspired the hit HBO series “True Blood,” when she wasn’t approaching each new addition with excitement. “And I thought, ‘You know, this is the time to end it, when I still have something to say.’” She released her final nod to Stackhouse and her world this week with “After Dead: What Came Next in the World of Sookie Stackhouse,” an illustrated book that lists the myriad of characters that appeared in the 13-book series and tells readers what happens in the ensuing years. But, Harris says, don’t expect any revisions. “I wrote the ending the way I wrote it and I’m not going to change it.” The uproar over her “Dead Ever After” started when an online review appeared about two weeks before its official May release date. (A reviewer obtained a copy from a German bookseller.) “I thought I had two more weeks to brace for it, but I didn’t, and it was just overwhelmingly awful,” said Harris, 61. The most vehement were angry that Stackhouse didn’t end up with the vampire Eric. Harris said she’d been steering readers to that eventuality. “Not only is who she ends up with not the point

of the books, but I said all along: ‘She loves the sun. She doesn’t want to just be able to go out at night,’” Harris said. “And I said in every interview I gave when someone would ask me: ‘Sookie will never be a vampire.’ And still: shock, horror, amazement, accusations that I’d sold out. I thought, ‘If I would have sold out I would have written the ending you wanted.’” Ginjer Buchanan, editorin-chief of Ace Books, which published the series, said it was a credit to the books that fans were so passionate. “What wasn’t good was that they just went totally overboard,” she said. But as fall approached, Harris said the reaction calmed. And she even got some apologies. Harris published her first book in 1981. After years of writing conventional mysteries, she wanted to try something different, something supernatural. It took two years to sell the first Stackhouse book, but it wasn’t long after “Dead Until Dark” was released in 2001 that Harris knew she had a hit. Buchanan said it was published at a time when urban fantasy was becoming popular. And, she said, Harris set herself apart by basing the series in the fictional town of Bon

Temps, La. “This is a series that once readers found it they were fans for life,” said Kaite Stover, director of readers’ services for the Kansas City Public Library in Missouri. “Charlaine Harris actually crafted in that first book a wonderful blend of romance, women’s fiction, Southern humor and urban fantasy.” Harris’ next series is set in Texas. She and her husband settled into the countryside outside Fort Worth about two years ago after living in Arkansas for about two decades. So far she’s signed for three books in the series. Stover predicts that those fans upset by the ending of the Sookie series will be happy. “They will remember when the new book comes out what they love about Charlaine Harris,” she said. “Midnight Crossroad,” to be released in May, is about “a mystical crossroad in a little dead Texas town,” Harris said. “It’s at an old town that’s partly derelict but there are a few homes and businesses still in use there. A town called Midnight. And there is a reason the people who live there are living there.” “I didn’t really intend it to be as supernatural as it’s turning out to be. It’s like I just can’t help myself.” Will there be vampires? “Well, there might be one vampire,” she said, eyes twinkling.

But after spending the last 15 years writing about the intrepid small-town Southern girl whose adventures have featured a host of supernatural beings, Harris says she has no regrets. “I had to be true to my own vision for the books otherwise, what kind of writer am I? Not a very good one,” said Harris, adding that fan reaction to the end of the series was distressing. Harris said she knew it

Ono ‘thankful’ for McCartney’s latest comments NEW YORK (AP) — Yoko Ono says she’s thankful Paul McCartney appears to have gotten over his grudge against her. McCartney, in a recent Rolling Stone interview, said he’s getting along fine with the widow of John Lennon, his old songwriting partner. The bad feelings had gone back decades, to when the Beatles were falling apart and other group members resented the appearance of Lennon’s new girlfriend in the recording studio. McCartney said that time was a great healer and thought that “if John loved her, there’s got to be something. He’s not stupid.” He said once he decided to let go of his grudge that they’ve been getting along fine. Ono, in an interview with The Associated Press, said Wednesday it was good to hear those words from McCartney and “I’m very thankful.” “I never felt too bad about Paul,” she said. “He was my husband’s partner and they did a great job and all that. They seemed to have a lot of fun, and I respected that.” Some of the bad feelings had persisted in the post-Beatles years, as Ono was a regular partner in business affairs surrounding the group after Lennon’s death in

1980 — perhaps most notably when McCartney expressed a desire to change songwriting credits to “McCartney-Lennon” instead of “Lennon-McCartney” for some of the songs most associated with him. McCartney told Rolling Stone he admires Ono’s work. She’s still making and releasing new music at age 80, like McCartney is at age 71. Said McCartney: “She’s badass.” “Well, he’s a rocker,” Ono said.

Court blocks changes to stop-and-frisk

Mick says he didn’t hit on young Perry NEW YORK (AP) — In her teenage dream? Mick Jagger says he never hit on Katy Perry when she was 18. During an interview with an Australian radio show Perry this week, the pop star said she sang backing vocals for Jagger’s 2004 song “Old Habits Die Hard.” Perry said she had dinner with the veteran rocker and that “he hit on me when I was 18.” In a statement Thursday, a representative for Jagger says he “categorically denies that he has ever made a pass at Katy Perry.” The rep adds: “Perhaps she is confusing him with someone else.”

Hallmark takes heat for removing ‘gay’ from Christmas song KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Greeting card giant Hallmark says it shouldn’t have changes the lyrics to “Deck the Halls” on a new holiday ornament that’s stirring customer backlash online. The company took heat Thursday after it began selling a miniaturized version of a tacky holiday sweater. The ornament alters the carol’s lyrics by removing the word “gay” and emblazoning the sweater with: “Don we now our FUN apparel!” Critics took to social media, accusing Hallmark of making a political statement. The Kansas City, Mo.-based company says it was surprised by the reaction and now realizes it shouldn’t have changed the wording.


Halloween at the White House Halloween decorations adorn the South Portico of the White House in Washington Thursday for trick-or-treaters. President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle

Obama planned to welcome local children and children of military families to ‘trick-ortreat’ at the White House.

Air traffic control system modernization hits snags WASHINGTON (AP) — After a decade of work and billions of dollars spent, the modernization of the U.S. air traffic control system is in trouble. The ambitious and complex technology program dubbed NextGen has encountered unforeseen difficulties at almost every turn. The program was promoted as a way to accommodate an anticipated surge in air travel, reduce fuel consumption and improve safety and efficiency. By shifting from radar-based navigation and radio communications — technologies rooted in the first half of the 20th century — to satellitebased navigation and digital communications, it would handle three times as many planes with half as many air

traffic controllers by 2025, the Federal Aviation Administration promised. Planes would fly directly to their destinations using GPS technology instead of following indirect routes to stay within the range of ground stations. They would continually broadcast their exact positions, not only to air traffic controllers, but to other similarly equipped aircraft. For the first time, pilots would be able to see on cockpit displays where they were in relation to other planes. That would enable planes to safely fly closer together, and even shift some of the responsibility for maintaining a safe separation of planes from controllers to pilots.

But almost nothing has happened as FAA officials anticipated. Increasing capacity is no longer as urgent as it once seemed. The 1 billion passengers a year the FAA predicted by 2014 has now been shoved back to 2027. Air traffic operations — takeoffs, landings and other procedures — are down 26 percent from their peak in 2000, although chronic congestion at some large airports can slow flights across the country. Difficulties have cropped up nearly everywhere, from new landing procedures that were impossible for some planes to fly to aircrafttracking software that misidentified planes.

NEW YORK (AP) — A federal appeals court on Thursday blocked a judge’s order requiring changes to the New York Police Department’s stop-and-frisk program and removed the judge from the case. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the decisions of Judge Shira Scheindlin will be stayed pending the outcome of an appeal by the city. The judge had ruled in August the city violated the Constitution in the way it carried out its program of stopping and questioning people. The city appealed her findings and her remedial orders, including a decision to assign a monitor to help the police department change its policy and training program associated with it. The appeals court heard arguments Tuesday on the requested stay.

The appeals court said the judge needed to be removed from the case because she ran afoul of the code of conduct for U.S. judges by compromising the necessity for a judge to avoid the appearance of partiality in part because of a series of media interviews and public statements responding publicly to criticism of the court. The judge had ruled that police officers violated the civil rights of tens of thousands of people by wrongly targeting black and Hispanic men with the stop-and-frisk program. She appointed an outside monitor to oversee major changes, including reforms in policies, training and supervision, and she ordered a pilot program to test body-worn cameras in some precincts where most stops occur.

Dell laptop owners complain of smell NEW YORK (AP) — A noxious feline odor has some Dell customers caterwauling. People who own Dell Latitude 6430u laptops are complaining that their pricey new computers are emitting a smell similar to cat urine. Some of them said on the company’s online customer forums that the odor seems to be coming from the keyboard or palm rest. The Round Rock, Texas, company originally

advised buyers through its forums to try cleaning their keyboards with a soft cloth or compressed air, but the smell persisted. A customer writing said he felt terrible for repeatedly scolding his cat Jerry, because he thought the elderly cat kept spraying the computer. The poster also said he wasted money on veterinarian bills in an attempt to determine whether his cat had a medical problem.

Editors’ affair rocks British phone hacking trial LONDON (AP) — A prosecutor electrified Britain’s phone hacking trial Thursday by revealing that Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson — the two most senior U.K. tabloid editors accused of illegal eavesdropping and bribery — had a secret affair lasting at least six years. Prosecutor Andrew Edis said the relationship between the two powerful editors — both former top Rupert Murdoch aides and associates of Prime Minister David Cameron — goes to the heart of the case’s key question: Who knew what during years of illicit activity at Murdoch’s News of the World and Sun tabloids? The fact they had an affair and kept it secret “means they trusted each other a lot,” Edis said. He said there was “absolute confidence between the two of them” about issues at their work. “Through the relevant period, what Mr. Coulson knew Mrs. Brooks knew too, and what Mrs. Brooks knew Mr. Coulson knew too, because it’s clear … that as at February 2004 they had been having an affair which had lasted at least six years,” he said. The two enjoyed close ties to Britain’s media and political elite. Brooks has been friends with Cameron and Coulson served as his communications director before and after Cameron’s election as prime minister in 2010.

Edis said their affair started in about 1998 and covered the period when Brooks was News of the World editor and Coulson her deputy — including the period in 2002 when the newspaper hacked into the phone of 13-year-old Milly Dowler, who was later found murdered. The prosecution contends that Brooks and Coulson must have sanctioned the hacking. Brooks and Coulson, both 45, Brooks’ current husband Charles Brooks, and five others are on trial in the first major criminal case spawned by the revelation of the paper’s eavesdropping. The eight defendants all deny a variety of charges related to phone hacking, bribing officials and obstructing a police inquiry. The phone hacking scandal forced Murdoch to shut the 168-year-old News of the World, triggered police inquiries into phone hacking and bribery by journalists and has created intense pressure on Britain’s freewheeling tabloid press to mend its ways. In his opening statement Thursday, Edis laid out the prosecution’s claim that Brooks, Coulson and other senior editors must have known about phone hacking that went on for years at the News of the World and its sister paper, The Sun. He said News of the World journalists, with consent from the tabloid’s top editors, colluded to

eavesdrop on the voice mail messages of phones of politicians, royalty, celebrities and even rival reporters in a “frenzy” to get scoops. He showed the jury detailed records — audio recordings, notes and email trails — of what he said were phone-hacking assignments from the News of the World to private investigator Glenn Mulcaire. The targets included former Labour Cabinet ministers Tessa Jowell, John Prescott and David Blunkett — whose own affair was revealed in a sting on his girlfriend’s phone. Mulcaire also targeted royal family member Lord Frederick Windsor, two journalists from the rival Mail on Sunday, and Dowler’s phone, the prosecutor said. Mulcaire was jailed briefly in 2007 for hacking the voicemails of royal aides. He has now pleaded guilty to new charges, including hacking Dowler’s phone. Three former News of the World news editors have also pleaded guilty, but those who were above them, including Brooks and Coulson, have denied knowing about the hacking. Edis said that claim was barely credible. Mulcaire was paid about 100,000 pounds a year under both Brooks and Coulson for his services. “Did nobody ever ask, ‘What are we paying this chap for?’” he said. “Somebody must have


This combination of Monday file photos shows former News of the World editor Rebekah Brooks and husband Charlie Brooks, left image, and former News of the World editor Andy Coulson as they arrive at The Old Bailey law court in London. On Thursday, a prosecutor in Britain’s phone hacking trial revealed that Rebekah Brooks and Coulson — the two most senior U.K. tabloid editors accused of illegal eavesdropping and bribery — had a secret affair lasting at least six years.

decided that what he was doing was worth an awful lot of money. Who was that?” The prosecutor’s forensic analysis of the phone-hacking trail was overshadowed by his revelation about Coulson and Brooks’ private lives. The two defendants, sitting side-by-side in the dock at the rear of the court, did not visibly react as the lawyer spoke. Edis said the revelation was “likely to attract a great deal of publicity,” some

of it “unfair, unkind and unnecessary,” but insisted it was relevant. He said the affair was revealed when police investigating phone hacking in 2011 found an intimate letter written by Brooks to Coulson on a computer in her London home. He said the 2004 letter was Brooks’ reply to Coulson’s attempt to end the affair. It’s not clear whether it was ever sent. “You are my very best friend. I tell you everything, I confide in you, I seek your

advice, I love you, care about you, worry about you, we laugh and cry together,” Brooks wrote in the letter read by Edis in court. “In fact, without our relationship in my life I am really not sure I will cope.” Brooks edited the News of the World from 2000 to 2003, then went on to edit The Sun, and later became the chief executive of Murdoch’s British newspaper division. Coulson edited the News of the World from 2003 to 2007.

Belgium considers extending euthanasia rights to kids BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Should children have the right to ask for their own deaths? In Belgium, where euthanasia is now legal for people over the age of 18, the government is considering extending it to children — something that no other country has done. The same bill would offer

the right to die to adults with early dementia. Advocates argue that euthanasia for children, with the consent of their parents, is necessary to give families an option in a desperately painful situation. But opponents have questioned whether children can reasonably decide to end their own lives. Belgium is already

a euthanasia pioneer; it legalized the practice for adults in 2002. In the last decade, the number of reported cases per year has risen from 235 deaths in 2003 to 1,432 in 2012, the last year for which statistics are available. Doctors typically give patients a powerful sedative before injecting another drug to


stop their heart. Only a few countries have legalized euthanasia or anything approaching it. In the Netherlands, euthanasia is legal under specific circumstances and for children over the age of 12 with parental consent. (There is an understanding that infants, too, can be euthanized, and that doctors

will not be prosecuted if they act appropriately.) Elsewhere in Europe, euthanasia is only legal in Luxembourg. Assisted suicide, where doctors help patients to die but do not actively kill them, is allowed in Switzerland. In the U.S., the state of Oregon grants assisted suicide requests for residents

Writer held after backing driving rights for women DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Saudi authorities have detained a columnist who supported ending his country’s ban on women driving, activists said Wednesday. The activists, who wished to remain anonymous for fear of retribution, said Tariq al-Mubarak was called by investigators in the capital Riyadh concerning a stolen car over the weekend. When he arrived at the Interior Ministry’s Criminal

Investigation Department on Sunday, he was interrogated instead about his role in a campaign launched by reformers seeking the right of women to drive in the kingdom. When his friends were informed they could pick him up at the investigator’s office, they too were detained for several hours and questioned over the campaign’s activities, activists said.

IRAQ: Iraqi prime minister blames civil war in Syria for problems FROM PAGE A1

— a turnabout from an insurgency that was mostly silenced by the time the U.S. troops left. Al-Maliki largely blamed the Syrian civil war for the rise in Iraq’s violence. In Syria, rebels — including some linked to al-Qaida — are fighting to overthrow President Bashar Assad. Al-Maliki said he will ask Obama for new assistance to bolster Iraq’s military and fight al-Qaida. The Iraqi ambassador to the U.S. said that could include speeding up the delivery of U.S. aircraft, missiles, interceptors and other weapons, and improving national intelligence systems among other things. Iraqi Ambassador Lukman Faily did not rule out the possibility of asking the U.S. to send military special forces or additional CIA advisers to Iraq to help train and assist counterterror troops, but noted that if the U.S. doesn’t provide the help, Iraq will go where they can, including China or Russia, which would be more than happy to increase their influence in Baghdad at U.S. expense. The two leaders also will discuss how Iraq can improve its fractious government, which so often is divided among sectarian or ethnic lines, to give it more confidence with a bitter and traumatized public. The ambassador said no new security agreement would be needed to give immunity to additional U.S. advisers or trainers in Iraq. And he said Iraq would pay for the additional weapons or other assistance. A senior Obama administration official said Wednesday that U.S. officials were not planning to send U.S. trainers to Iraq and that Baghdad had not asked for them. The administration official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief reporters

by name. U.S. officials were prepared to help Iraq with an approach that did not focus just on military or security gaps, the administration official said. The aid under consideration might include more weapons for Iraqi troops who do not have necessary equipment to battle al-Qaida insurgents, he said. Administration officials consider the insurgency, which has rebranded itself as the Islamic State of Iraq in the Levant, a major and increasing threat both to Iraq and the U.S., the official said. U.S. and Iraqi officials see a possible solution in trying to persuade insurgents to join forces with Iraqi troops and move away from al-Qaida, following a pattern set by so-called Awakening Councils in western Iraq that marked a turning point in the war. Faily said much of the additional aid — including weapons and training — would go toward this effort. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who opposed the U.S. troop withdrawal in 2011, said Iraq likely would not get the aid until al-Maliki, a Shiite, makes strides in making the government more inclusive to Sunnis. “The situation is deteriorating and it’s unraveling, and he’s got to turn it around,” McCain said Wednesday after a tense meeting on Capitol Hill with al-Maliki. Al-Maliki’s plea for aid is somewhat ironic, given that he refused to budge in 2011 on letting U.S. troops stay in Iraq with legal immunity Washington said they must have to defend themselves in the volatile country. But it was a fiercely unpopular political position in Iraq, which was unable to prosecute Blackwater Worldwide security contractors who opened fire in a Baghdad square in 2007, killing at least 13 passersby.

and activists who know al-Mubarak say he remains in detention with no access to a lawyer. The New York-based organization called for al-Mubarak’s immediate release and on authorities “to stop harassing and trying to intimidate activists and women who defied the driving ban.” The spokesman for the Interior Ministry, Mansour al-Turki, could not be reached for comment.

Israel takes out shipment of Russian missiles in Syria BEIRUT (AP) — Israeli warplanes attacked a shipment of Russian missiles inside a Syrian government stronghold, officials said Thursday, a development that threatened to add another volatile layer to regional tensions from the Syrian civil war. The revelation came as the government of President Bashar Assad met a key deadline in an ambitious plan to eliminate Syria’s entire chemical weapons stockpile by mid-2014 and avoid international military action. The announcement by a global chemical weapons watchdog that the country has completed the destruction of equipment used to produce the deadly agents highlights Assad’s willingness to cooperate, and puts more pressure on the divided and outgunned rebels to attend a planned peace conference. An Obama administration official confirmed the Israeli airstrike overnight, but provided no details. Another security official said the attack occurred late Wednesday in the Syrian port city of Latakia and that the target was Russian-made SA-125 missiles. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the attack. There

was no immediate confirmation from Syria. Since the civil war in Syria began in March 2011, Israel has carefully avoided taking sides, but has struck shipments of missiles inside Syria at least twice this year. The Syrian military, overstretched by the civil war, has not retaliated, and it was not clear whether the embattled Syrian leader would choose to take action this time. Assad may decide to again let the Israeli attack slide, particularly when his army has the upper hand on the battlefield inside Syria. Israel has repeatedly declared a series of red lines that could trigger Israeli military intervention, including the delivery of “game-changing” weapons to the Syrian-backed Lebanese Hezbollah group. Israel has never officially confirmed taking action inside Syria to avoid embarrassing Assad and sparking a potential response. But foreign officials say it has done so several times when Israeli intelligence determined that sophisticated missiles were on the move. In January, an Israeli airstrike in Syria destroyed a shipment of advanced anti-aircraft missiles bound for Hezbollah, according to U.S. officials. And in May, it was said to have acted again, taking out a shipment

of Iranian-made Fateh-110 missiles at a Damascus airport. The Fateh-110s have advanced guidance systems that allow them to travel up to 200 miles (300 kilometers) per hour with great precision. Their solid-fuel propellant allows them to be launched at short notice, making them hard to detect and neutralize. Israel has identified several other weapons systems as game changers, including chemical weapons, Russian-made Yakhont missiles that can be fired from land and destroy ships at sea, and Russian SA-17 anti-aircraft missiles. Israel’s January airstrike is believed to have destroyed a shipment of SA-17s. Syrian activists and opposition groups reported strong explosions Wednesday night that appeared to come from inside an air defense facility in Latakia. They said the cause of the blasts was not known. The announcement Thursday that Syria had completed the destruction of equipment used to produce chemical weapons came one day ahead of a Nov. 1 deadline set by the Hague-based watchdog, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

Stock market avoids October jinx NEW YORK (AP) — October often makes investors nervous, since that’s when some of the biggest crashes in stock market history happened. But this October, the market seemed unstoppable. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index closed at a record high seven times and ended the month up 4.5 percent. The market climbed even after October began with the 16-day government shutdown and the threat of a potentially calamitous U.S. default. “The market didn’t waver in the face of the shutdown,” said Anton Bayer, CEO of Up Capital Management, an investment adviser. “That was huge.” After being rattled by a series of down-to-thewire budget battles in recent years, investors have become inured to the ways of Washington lawmakers. Instead of selling stocks, they kept their focus on what they say really matters: the Federal Reserve. The central bank is buying $85 billion of bonds every month and keeping its benchmark short-term interest rate near zero to promote economic growth. The Fed stimulus has helped generate a stock market rally that dates to March 2009. With October’s gains, the S&P 500 is now up 23.1 percent for the year. The Dow Jones industrial average is 18.6 percent higher, and the Nasdaq composite index is up 29.8 percent. Some analysts say the precipitous rise in stocks may now make the market vulnerable to a drop. “Because stocks have gone up so much, people will get nervous about another big sell-off at some stage,” said David Kelly, chief global strategist at JPMorgan funds. Some investors will be relieved to see October behind them. The Stock Trader’s Almanac refers to

• October as “the jinx month” because of its fraught history. The Dow lost 40 points on Oct. 28, 1929, a day that became known as Black Monday and heralded the start of the Depression. Almost 60 years later, on Oct. 19, 1987, the Dow suffered its biggest percentage loss, plunging nearly 23 percent in the second Black Monday. The

Stocks edged lower in early trading on Wall Street Thursday, paring the market’s big gain for October.

index also plummeted 13 percent on Oct. 27, 1997. There was no such drama on Wall Street on Thursday. Stocks were mostly flat as investors took in disappointing corporate earnings. The S&P 500 slipped 6.77 points, or 0.4 percent, to 1,756.54. The Dow gained 73.01 points, or 0.5 percent, to 15,545. The Nasdaq composite fell 10.91 points, or 0.3 percent, to 3,919.71. Avon slumped $4.90, or 21.9 percent, to $17.50 after the beauty products company reported a third-quarter loss, reflecting lower sales and China-related charges. The company also said the Securities and Exchange Commission is proposing a much larger penalty than it expected to settle bribery allegations. Visa fell $7.15, or 3.5 percent, to $196.67. Its

quarterly profits fell 28 percent as it set aside money for taxes. Visa also expects a slow recovery for the economy. Overall, company earnings are beating the expectations of Wall Street analysts and lifting stock prices. Companies are benefiting from low borrowing costs and stable labor expenses, which are enabling them to boost earnings even as sales remain slack. Earnings for companies in the S&P 500 are expected to grow 5.1 percent in the third quarter, according from S&P Capital IQ. That compares with 4.9 percent in the second quarter, and 2.4 percent in the same period a year ago. The stock market is likely to keep climbing as long as the central bank keeps up its stimulus, said Up Capital’s Bayer.

No dropoff for Hostetler BY KEN FILLMORE

FREMONT — Cherish what Abby Hostetler has done for nearly seven seasons of running between cross country and track and appreciate what is left with one more high school cross country meet and several more track meets in the spring. She is competing at a level that is not seen all that often from a Steuben County prep athlete. Hostetler has been healthy this fall after dealing with a stress reaction in her right femur during the postseason stretch last cross country season. She still had her best state finals finish in Terre Haute in ninth place. And there has not been a falloff in her senior season. Hostetler won four meets in the regular season before winning regional, sectional and Northeast Corner Conference runs. After placing third in the New Haven Semistate this past Saturday, the Fremont senior will go for her third straight podium finish in her fourth straight state finals meet on Saturday on the LaVern Gibson Championship Course at the Wabash Valley Sports Center. Hostetler and Prairie Heights junior Aspen Dirr will run in the girls race at 1:45 p.m. West Noble’s Brandon Arnold and DeKalb’s Mark Beckmann will run in the boys’ race first at 1 p.m. Hostetler has bounced back from the injury. But it’s hard to maintain the high level of productivity she has had. Priorities change. Edges can be lost. Senioritis can kick in with those

factors coming into play. The teenager is having her fun. But her drive has not wavered, especially when the starter pulls the trigger. “Senioritis has not hurt her all that much. There has been time that the training has not gone as we wanted. But when the gun goes off, you see a different set of circumstances,” Eagles coach Moses Castillo said. “She’s a competitor who wants to succeed. She exudes what you want out of the program and the girls grow with her. It’s an honor to coach such a wonderful young lady.” There’s a part of Hostetler where she is still kicking herself for not getting on the podium with a least a 20th-place finish as a freshman in 2010. She placed 31st. There is no shortage of motivation for Hostetler and the podium positively consumes her. She was on the cross country podium her first time as a sophomore when she placed 15th in 2011. “She thrives on it,” Castillo said. “And she’ll be recharged and good to go. She’s gonna do well.” The powerful-running Hostetler prides herself on starting fast. But Castillo said she started too fast at The Plex last weekend and did not have much left at the end as she finished behind semistate champion Maddie Woods of Penn and runner-up Alex Buck from Pendleton Heights. Hostetler was ahead of everybody after running the first 400 meters in 69 seconds.



Fremont senior Abby Hostetler will run in her fourth IHSAA State Cross Country Meet Saturday afternoon on the LaVern Gibson Championship Course at the Wabash Valley Sports Center in Terre Haute and will go for her third straight podium finish by finishing in the top 20.

knee). “You look at the film, and it’s obvious you’re facing one of the best defenses in the NFL,” Hamilton said. “I don’t know if they have a weakness.” Hamilton said his staff is putting in extra time trying to figure out how to keep Watt’s damage to a minimum. “Of course, we’ll have some schemes to account for J.J.,” Hamilton said. “That’s good on paper, but we’ve got to go out on the field and execute on game day.” Houston coach Gary Kubiak said Watt expects the extra attention. After all, Watt had a franchise record 20 1/2 sacks last season, one of the best seasons for a pass rusher in NFL history. “Naturally, as the guy plays and the longer he plays, especially you play him over and over again in your division, people are going to game-plan him and do different things to account for him,” Kubiak said. “So yeah, he’s seen a lot of different things.” Kubiak added Watt has become more comfortable in Wade Phillips’ defense.

West Noble’s Brandon Arnold has a better idea of what he is getting himself into Saturday running in his second straight Indiana High School Athletic Association State Cross Country Finals. However, it will be a brand new experience for Prairie Heights junior Aspen Dirr. But she does have a better idea of how good she is. The pair will be running in their respective state meets on the LaVern Gibson Championship Course at the Wabash Valley Sports Center Saturday afternoon. Arnold will run in the boys’ race at 1 p.m., and Dirr will run in the girls’ race at 1:45 p.m. Arnold, a junior, won’t be starstruck by the environment and other runners in the elite race. Getting used to the spectacle and the course was accomplished in his first state finals run last year. “It will be like I know what to expect. I can just go and race,” he said. “My goal is to do a lot better. It won’t be as stressful this time around. In my last race (of the season), if I can’t give it everything I can, that would be very disappointing.” Arnold has put together another steady season. His postseason started by winning the Northeast Corner Conference meet on his home course at West Noble. He was second to DeKalb’s Mark Beckmann in the West Noble Sectional and fourth in the West Noble Regional. Arnold was eighth in the New Haven Semistate, finishing in 16 minutes, 8.74 seconds at The Plex at IPFW this past Saturday. He was fifth out of the 10 individuals making the state field who are not from state-qualifying teams. Dirr has picked it up in the postseason by setting personal best times and school records at the NECC, sectional, regional and semistate meets. That school record now stands at 19:21.51, which was good for 18th place at the New Haven Semistate.




Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is sacked by San Diego Chargers defensive end Corey Liuget, left, and linebacker Manti Te’o

earlier this season. The Colts will have the task of keeping the Houston Texans away from Luck during Sunday night’s NFL game.

Colts will be tested INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Colts have a major challenge on Sunday night: Keeping the Texans and defensive end J.J. Watt away from franchise quarterback Andrew Luck. Watt, the AP Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, sacked Luck three times in Houston’s win over the Colts last December. In two games against the Texans last season, Luck was sacked six times. This season, Watt has 4 1/2 sacks. He needs a half-sack to set the franchise record for most sacks by a Texans player in his first three seasons. “He’s got the physical attributes and the strength and speed,” Luck said. “His motor runs all the time. He’s chasing guys down 30 yards away. He’s making plays everywhere.” Watt does the dirty work, too, taking on extra blockers and still making plays against the run. Watt has 54 tackles this season, including 12 for losses. “He has a great combination of power, speed and determination to wreak havoc in your backfield,” Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said. “He’s not just a good pass rusher, but he’s hell to

He finds ways to get into your backfield and disrupt your run game. “ Watt anchors a unit that ranks No. 1 in both total defense and fewest yards allowed passing. The Colts expect to face a tough unit, even though linebacker Brian Cushing, the team’s leading tackler, is on injured reserve (left



College Basketball Trine men picked 4th in MIAA ROYAL OAK, Mich. — Trine University was picked to finish fourth in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association men’s basketball preseason coaches poll released on Thursday. Defending champion Calvin was picked to win the conference, receiving six of the coaches’ eight first-place votes and receiving eight points. Hope was picked second, receiving 12 points and the other two first-place votes. Adrian (21) was third, followed by Trine (26), Alma (32), Olivet (37), Kalamazoo (41) and Albion (47). The Thunder are coming off two straight winning seasons and two MIAA Tournament berths under coach Brooks Miller. They were 14-12 overall and tied for third in the MIAA with Adrian at 7-7.

Prep Volleyball Herschberger resigns at Fairfield BENTON — Highly successful Fairfield High School coach Carla Herschberger resigned from her coaching position on Wednesday after 13 seasons. Herschberger informed her Falcons of her decision to step down in a team meeting on Wednesday afternoon. She submitted her resignation to Fairfield athletic director Mark Hofer that same day. Herschberger will remain a classroom teacher at Fairfield. Herschberger compiled a 455-115 record in 16 seasons and made seven state finals appearances, six in Class 2A and one in 3A in 2012 when Fairfield reached the state semifinals and went 35-2. She also won 7 regional titles and 12 sectional crowns. Herschberger started at Westview and went 68-35 from 1997-99. She led the Warriors to sectional and regional titles and a 2A state finals appearance in 1999, and led the team to a sectional title in 1998. Herschberger

established a state power at Fairfield over the past 13 seasons, winning 387 matches, making six state finals and being the 2A runner-up to Muncie Burris in 2006 and 2010. She led the Falcons to a semistate title, 11 Northeast Corner Conference regular season championships, seven NECC Tournament titles and on their current streak of 10 straight sectional titles. “We can not begin to thank Carla for all she has done for Fairfield and our student-athletes as an educator and a coach,” Hofer said in a press release issued on Thursday. “She has done so much for the girls in developing their skills and taking our program to a level where we are respected across the state. But even more importantly, she took the time to work with each of the girls and helped them to reach for their best as a person. “She is a true coaching legend and we are so thankful for her time as the leader of our volleyball program.”

Several make 20 correct picks in Hannah contest KENDALLVILLE — Three contestants emerged to win the final Hannah Holstein Football Contests for the 2013 season at the KPC Media Group daily newspapers. In The Herald Republican contest, Sheri Bowden won the $25 gift certificate at the Angola

Pizza Hut in a tiebreaker over Angola’s Jeff Boswell. Both individuals picked all 20 games right. With the high score among the games to pick from being 67 by Southern Wells in its sectional first-round home win Friday, Sheri’s 57 was closer to 67 than Jeff’s 51. Angola’s Mary Tierney went 19-1. In The Star contest, Bill Armstrong of Auburn and Terry Howiler of Garrett both picked all 20 games correctly. But Armstrong’s tiebreaker of 60 was closer to the week’s high total — 67 by Southern Wells — than Howiler’s guess of 52. With that, Armstrong wins the $25 gift certificate to MJS Apparel in Garrett. A slew of contestants picked 18 correctly: Janet Zeider of Garrett, John Smurr of Garrett, Zachary Wood of Garrett, Kelly Getts of Corunna, Dave Cooper of Butler, Mary Benson of Auburn and John Burkhart of Auburn. The News Sun contest was also decided by tiebreaker, with Myron Noward of Kendallville taking the honors. Noward and Kendallville’s Mike Pasquali each picked all 20 games correctly. At 19-1 were Joe Ulery of Howe and Kenneth Myers of LaGrange.

on improving Luck’s protection, and Hamilton said the revamped unit has done a solid job. Luck has been sacked 15 times in seven games. “Our offensive line, considering that we’ve had to shuffle and juggle that lineup quite a bit, those guys are continuing to build that continuity that they’re going to need for the long haul,” Hamilton said. Luck also is one of the league’s most athletic quarterbacks. He has rushed for 183 yards and three touchdowns. His elusiveness has given his speedy receivers, especially

T.Y. Hilton, more chances to make big plays. Luck will face one of his toughest challenges yet against the Texans, and not just from Watt. Antonio Smith, who made the Pro Bowl last year, has 2 1/2 sacks from the other defensive end spot, and a reputation for creating problems for offenses. “Them guys there, they’re some head-bangers, and they’re athletic,” Colts running back Trent Richardson said. “They’re doing everything they can to rush the passer. Especially in the passing game, you’ve got to mind your Ps and Qs.”


West Noble junior Brandon Arnold will run in his second straight IHSAA State Cross Country Meet Saturday afternoon in Terre Haute.

STATE: Dirr has elevated goals FROM PAGE B1

She was the ninth out of 10 individual state qualifiers from non-state-qualifying teams. “It started to pick up before conference really,” first-year Panther head coach Mark Walter said. “At conference she did really well in placing third. (Amairany) Cruz from West Noble caught her at the end. But she started to realize what she is capable of and it was a confidence boost for us. “After sectional, we started making a list of what to look out for and where she can go. If she finished between 19:20 and 19:30, she was going to move on to state. I’m proud of her. She’s done a heckuva job.” Dirr has elevated her expectations and learned to run well through pain. She went to semistate as a freshman in 2011, then was set back by calf issues last year. Walter said those calf issues have not gone away. “I don’t think they were as bad as it was last year. It will tighten up now and then,” Walter said. “It’s just runner’s pain.”

Walter said improved training habits and work ethic this season has helped get Dirr to state. It has helped get over the hump to overcome her physical setbacks. Catching fire this postseason has sparked her competitive fire again. “I think Aspen wrote on her Twitter account that she never thought she would get to state. She surprised herself, and snuck up on people who I don’t think anticipated it,” Walter said. “She got into a sophomore slump where she was more of a wanting to run for fun kinda girl. “Now she’s ‘I believe and no one is going to beat me.’ Aspen is doing what she needs to do no matter what. That’s how she was in the mile in middle school. She was not going to lose this,” the coach continued. “She’s the one who put herself in this position. “Aspen pushed herself differently than in years past. Her tempo in intervals is at a pace she needs to be and she wants to push through leg pain. She’s realized she can get (college) scholarships. Look out for her in track.”

HOSTETLER: State title hunt open FROM PAGE B1

“She has to maintain going up the staircase at the 1 and a half mile mark. Then at the 2-mile mark, put the hammer down,” Castillo said, referring to the Gibson course in Terre Haute. “We’ve done a lot of work to get past those 600 meters going up.” Hostetler is among the top runners in the state, and the state title hunt will be wide open with arguably the fastest long distance-running girl in Indiana high school history, Mishawaka’s Anna Rohrer, out due

to a broken bone in a foot. That injury came a few days after recording the fastest 5-kilometer time in state history in August at 16 minutes, 52.24 seconds. Anna Aldrich’s Fremont record of 18:06 is still in sight for Hostetler. Hostetler ran 18:20.25 at semistate, and was a little less than two seconds behind Buck. Hostetler has drawn interest from top colleges all over the country, including Alabama and Arizona. But she wants to stay within four hours from home.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Washington Nationals hire Matt Williams as manager WASHINGTON (AP) — Matt Williams will make his debut as a major league manager with the Washington Nationals, a hiring announced by Mike Rizzo on Thursday, one day after the World Series ended. The Nationals will hold a news conference to introduce Williams at their stadium on Friday. He replaces the retired Davey Johnson, who won the NL Manager of the Year award for leading Washington to a majors-leading 98 wins and the NL East title in 2012, then announced before this season that 2013 would be it for him in the Nationals’ dugout. After entering the season with sky-high expectations — and, famously, Johnson’s “World Series or bust” declaration — the Nationals missed the playoffs, going 86-76 and finishing 10 games out of first place in the division. The 47-year-old Williams was the third-base coach for the Diamondbacks the past three seasons. He has only brief managerial experience at any level, having spent some time in the Arizona Fall League and five weeks as a midseason fill-in at Double-A in the minors.

Alexi Emelin signs 4-year deal with Canadiens MONTREAL (AP) — Hard-hitting defenseman Alexei Emelin has signed a four-year contract with the Montreal Canadiens. The deal is reportedly worth $16.4 million and takes effect in the 2014-15 season. The 27-year-old Russian has yet to play this season because of a knee injury. He is earning $2 million this season. General manager Marc Bergevin said Thursday that Emelin is an “important part of our group of core players” and “can play big minutes against the opponents’ best players.” Emelin was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent next summer. He tore a knee ligament April 6 and is expected back in late November or early December.

Kevin Seitzer hired as hitting coach of Blue Jays TORONTO (AP) — Former All-Star third baseman Kevin Seitzer has been hired as hitting coach of the Toronto Blue Jays. Seitzer replaces Chad Mottola, who got the job after the 2012 season when Dwayne Murphy moved from hitting coach to first-base coach. The 51-year-old Seitzer was hitting coach for Arizona during the first half of the 2007 season and for Kansas City from 2009-12. He had a .295 average with 74 home runs and 613 RBIs for the Royals, Milwaukee, Oakland and Cleveland in 12 major league seasons. Toronto, which announced the hiring Thursday, was 73-89 this season and was 15th in the major leagues with a a .252 batting average. The Blue Jays said Oct. 7 that Mottola and Murphy will not return for 2014.

Royals exercise option on Shields for 2014 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Royals exercised their $13.5 million option on right-hander James Shields on Thursday after he anchored one of the league’s best starting rotations last season. Shields, acquired last offseason in a trade from Tampa Bay, went 13-9 with a 3.15 ERA and an AL-leading 228 2-3 innings. Shields was especially strong after the All-Star break, going 9-3 with a 3.06 ERA to help the Royals get into playoff contention. Kansas City went 43-27 after the break to finish 86-76, its best record since 1989. Shields won the Joe Burke Special Achievement Awarded presented by the Kansas City chapter of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.

Rangers decline $12M contract option for Berkman ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers have declined their $12 million contract option for Lance Berkman, making the 37-year-old switchhitter a free agent. Berkman gets a $1 million buyout for the second year of the deal signed in January. Berkman hit .242 with six home runs and 34 RBIs in 73 games this season. He went on the disabled list July 7 with a left inflammation and a sore right knee, and played only five games after coming back the final month of the season. The six-time All-Star played only 32 games for St. Louis in 2012, when he dealt with a strained left calf and had two operations on his right knee. He hit .301 in 2011 for the Cardinals, who won the World Series that season over Texas.

Padres trade Hynes to Indians SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Padres have traded left-hander Colt Hynes to the Cleveland Indians for cash considerations. Hynes had been designated for assignment by the club Oct. 26. Hynes, a 31st-round pick by the Padres in the 2007 amateur draft, split his time between the Padres, Triple-A Tucson and Double-A San Antonio last season.

Indiana has caps on property taxes. This year the caps reduced property taxes by about $768 million or 11 percent. Indiana has local option income taxes that counties adopt to reduce property taxes some more. All counties now have local income taxes. Common sense says that when a county adopts a tax-relief income tax on top of tax-reducing caps, taxes will be even lower. Wrong again, common sense! Sometimes the combination of tax caps and local option income taxes can increase total tax bills and local government revenues. It’s the paradox of local option income taxes. Here’s what happens. Property taxes are capped at 1 percent of gross assessed value for homeowners, 2 percent for other residential housing (such as rentals or vacation homes) and farmland, and 3 percent for business property. Gross assessed value is the estimated market value of most properties before deductions are subtracted. Local governments set their tax rates at the end of the budget process. If the rate results in a tax bill higher than a property’s cap, a tax cap credit is applied to reduce the bill to the cap amount. Here’s the key fact: The tax cap is the taxpayer’s last defense against high tax bills. All deductions and credits are subtracted before the tax cap credit is applied. This includes the credits from local option income taxes. Indiana’s local option income taxes apply to Indiana taxable income, the same as the state income tax. When a county adopts this tax for property tax relief, the income tax rate increases, and then the property tax bill is reduced by a local option income tax credit. The income tax revenue replaces this lost property tax revenue for local governments. Counties can distribute tax relief in three ways, or in combinations of the three. On average, across the state, if the local option income tax is adopted at 1 percent and the relief is offered only to homeowners, the homestead credit will be about 51 percent. If the county distributes the relief to all residential property, the credit averages 31 percent. If it goes to all property, the credit averages 17 percent. Consider a homestead valued at $200,000 and a property tax rate of $3 per $100 assessed value (3 percent). Deductions would usually subtract $102,250, leaving taxable assessed value of $97,750. The tax bill would be $2,933. But taxes are capped at $2,000, which is 1 percent of the gross assessed value. The taxpayer gets a credit of $933 and pays $2,000. That $933 credit is lost revenue for local governments. Now suppose the county adopts a local option income tax at 1 percent, and distributes the tax relief to all property. The local option income tax credit is 17 percent. The tax caps come at the end of the tax bill calculation, so the 17 percent credit applies to the tax bill of $2,933. That’s a credit of $499, and the remaining property tax bill is $2,434. The tax cap is still $2,000, but the tax cap credit is now only $434. This homeowner pays the same capped property tax bill, even after the credit. But the homeowner pays the local income tax, too! Most people who own $200,000 houses also have Indiana taxable income, so they’ll pay more income tax with the added 1 percent local option income tax rate. An income tax designed for property tax relief has increased total property plus income taxes. Paradox explained. Taxpayers with lower-valued property or with lower property tax rates will see the full tax reduction and may pay less in total taxes. Taxpayers with property at the caps don’t see the full tax reduction, because the local option income tax credit substitutes for the tax cap credit. But all of the income tax revenue is still distributed among the county’s local governments. Put another way, the income tax credit reduces the property tax revenue lost from the tax cap credits. Local government receives more revenue. It’s hard to say if this is what the General Assembly intended, since the local option income taxes were invented before the tax caps. One of the reasons for the income taxes, though, was to shift local taxes away from property and toward income. Local governments know that the income taxes can reduce their tax cap revenue losses. That’s an incentive to adopt. And that shifts taxation toward income, which is what many legislators had in mind. LARRY DEBOER is professor of agricultural economics at Purdue University.

Virginia may become a GOP wake-up call WASHINGTON — It isn’t over yet, but a bookie today would predict a Terry McAuliffe victory in the Virginia governor’s election next week. Washington Post polling shows the Democratic businessman and fundraiser with a double-digit lead (51 percent to 39 percent) over Republican Ken Cuccinelli following a campaign ad blitz that shredded the sitting attorney general over his conservative views. It’s not that voters love McAuliffe. They just don’t like Cuccinelli — and they really don’t like the Republican Party. Partly, this is Cuccinelli’s fault. His conservative views on same-sex marriage and abortion do not resonate with many voters, especially women. He also suffered some collateral damage from Gov. Bob McDonnell’s questionable practices in accepting gifts and cash donations for personal use. But mostly, the polls suggest that general distaste for the GOP and the Republican role in shutting down the government has doomed Cuccinelli at a time when he ought to be celebrating his insight in leading the legal challenge to the Affordable Care Act. Fifty-five percent said the shutdown is very important to their vote. For this, Republicans can thank their tea-party constituents in the House of Representatives and the singular Ted Cruz in the Senate — the latter’s Texas ovation and Iowa stampede notwithstanding. These were the actors who forced the shutdown and who, should Republicans begin

losing gubernatorial and congressional races, would be the major reason. Disgust trickles down, over and out. Seeing Virginia as a bellwether state does have certain limitations, including the fact that the percentage of registered Virginia voters personally inconvenienced KATHLEEN by the shutdown (35 percent) PARKER was higher than the national average (22 percent). Even so, nationally, the shutdown and the dysfunction leading up to it are blamed on Republicans more than on Democrats or President Obama. A recent Post-ABC poll found that 81 percent of Americans disapproved of the shutdown, and 53 percent blamed Republicans. Twenty-nine percent blamed the president. Republicans can try as they might to dissuade voters from this perspective, but they will convince only the lead singers in the choir. Even Republican House leaders, who never wanted to tie the ACA to funding the government, understand the damage that has been done. This includes the possibility that come 2014, Virginia’s Democratic tilt could also indicate a possible reordering of power in the U.S. House of Representatives. Nancy Pelosi, who would replace John Boehner and resume her seat as speaker should Democrats win enough

seats, lately seems to have an extra spring in her step. Whether Democrats are too soon counting their chickens depends on a few unknowns: One is whether Republicans turn out in greater numbers than Democrats next week, the usual trend in off-year elections. Republicans tend to be more motivated, but more voters may not be enough. Not even the fact that McAuliffe’s business dealings have raised eyebrows has been sufficient to make his opponent more attractive. Another unknown is what happens when the next round of spending and debt-ceiling debates arise early next year. The temporary agreement that put federal employees back to work could result in a replay of the recent debacle unless Republican leaders can convince their Braveheart faction to stand down and defer to their elders. This is a chance that probably needs liposuction, but Republicans have no other choice unless they’re ready to go back home and bore their neighbors with stories of their principled martyrdom. The alternative is for the GOP to successfully recruit strong candidates to unseat their unruly, ideologically rigid contingent, which poses a significant challenge given recent gerrymandering that secured Republican incumbency in many districts. Some GOP strategists would argue that getting rid of tea-party candidates is burning down the village to save it, given that internal disagreements are not about goals but tactics, which can be changed.

The percentage of registered Virginia voters personally inconvenienced by the shutdown (35 percent) was higher than the national average (22 percent).

• There’s obvious merit to this view, but the general view nationally of the tea party’s effect on governance has been so negative that all Republicans suffer by association. Moreover, if the tea-party members of the House have demonstrated one prevailing trait, it is that they would rather perish than surrender, i.e. change tactics. Finally, perhaps the pivotal unknown is whether the ACA gets past the “glitches” and becomes the full-on train wreck so oft-invoked by Republicans. Thus far, with millions losing their coverage and premiums rising for others, this, too, seems at least a coin toss if not a crapshoot. So it isn’t over yet, in Virginia or elsewhere, but Republicans have little time to regain the trust and confidence of the nonideological centrist majority. It’s time to dump the tea party in the Potomac. KATHLEEN PARKER is a syndicated columnist with Tribune Media Services. She can be reached at




Mom center of battle between son, friend DEAR ABBY: I have been divorced five years and have five children, ranging in age from 23 to 8. When I was having trouble with my middle son, “Logan,” I found help from his godfather, “Carl.” I hadn’t seen Carl in years. He was my ex’s best friend when Logan was born. Long story short, Carl and I have been in a committed relationship for two years now. He has been more a part of our lives than my ex has. Four of my kids love Carl, and he is very involved in their lives. Logan, however, hates him and throws a fit if his name is mentioned. I have tried to explain that I didn’t intend this to happen, but Logan feels I “took away his godfather from him.” Carl is still there for him, but Logan will have none of it and refuses to listen. Carl and I mainly spend time together on the




weekends we don’t have our kids, or meet for lunch or breakfast. I’m at a loss. Logan is now 17. I don’t want to lose Carl. He’s a great man and wants what’s best for me and the kids. What should I do? — PULLED DEAR DEAR ABBY PULLED: Logan may be 17, but he is acting Jeanne Phillips like a child. Do not let his behavior discourage you from having a life. In another year he will be 18 — and either concentrating on finishing his education or finding a job. Logan needs to realize that he hasn’t “lost” a godfather, and that everyone

may eventually be gaining a stepdad. He also needs to understand that if he can’t accept it, he will find himself odd man out in an otherwise healthy, happy and functional family.

Mites, mold and dander asthma culprits oldest outer layer of your skin tends to come off when it rubs against the sheets. The dust mites love that. These little critters are built of substances that irritate the air passages in our lungs. The same is true of mold. There is some mold in every home. ASK Since mold DOCTOR K. likes damp places, there’s likely to be mold in Dr. Anthony more bathrooms, Komaroff basements and poorly ventilated areas of the house. Molds are a type of fungi. Individually, molds are invisible, but when millions of them grow on something, like an overripe piece of fruit, you

can see them. Cats, dogs and other animals shed their skin and hair (their dander) just as we do. Animal dander contains substances that can irritate the air passages in the lungs. You can help control these allergens: • Clean and vacuum your bedroom frequently. • Wash your bedding frequently in hot water. • Remove carpets and heavy draperies from sleeping areas. • Keep pets out of your bedroom and bathe them regularly. Asthma sufferers can also be quite sensitive to environmental conditions. Your asthma may be reacting to air that is too hot, too cold, too moist or too dry.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I have asthma. Lately my symptoms have been worse at night. Why is that? DEAR READER: I put many questions to what I call the “grandmother test.” My mother’s mother did not have much education, but she was smart and had great common sense. Her answer to your question would have been: “There’s something in your bedroom that’s irritating your lungs.” That’s what I think, too. As you know, asthma is a long-term lung condition in which air passages narrow and become inflamed. This leads to breathing difficulties and wheezing. The things in your bedroom that are most likely to trigger attacks of asthma are dust mites, mold or animal dander. Dust mites are tiny, barely visible insects that live in our homes and feed on flakes of our skin. When you sleep, the


wearing off too quickly. A controller medicine, such as an inhaled corticosteroid, helps prevent asthma symptoms. Ask your doctor if you need to increase your dose, or take a dose before you go to bed. Many people find that lying down makes them more uncomfortable, although the asthma itself isn’t worse. Try propping yourself up rather than lying flat in bed. • Finally, gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) may be causing your symptoms to worsen at night. A small amount of stomach acid can come back up your esophagus and slide into your upper airways, irritating them. Try propping up the head of your bed, or ask your doctor about medications that can help control GERD. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is

Democratic unity fraying amidst recent turmoil WASHINGTON (AP) — Just two weeks after President Barack Obama saw his Democratic Party put up an unyielding front against Republicans, his coalition is showing signs of stress. From health care to spying to pending budget deals, many congressional Democrats are challenging the administration and pushing for measures that the White House has not embraced. Some Democrats are seeking to extend the enrollment period for new health care exchanges. Others want to place restraints on National Security Administration surveillance capabilities. Still others are standing tough against any budget deal that uses long-term reductions in major benefit programs to offset immediate cuts in defense. Though focused on disparate issues, the

Democrats’ anxieties are connected by timing and stand out all the more when contrasted with the remarkable unity the party displayed during the recent showdown over the partial government shutdown and the confrontation over raising the nation’s borrowing limit. “That moment was always going to be fleeting,” said Matt Bennett, who worked in the Clinton White House and who regularly consults with Obama aides. “The White House, every White House, understands that these folks, driven either by principle or the demands of the politics of their state, have to put daylight between themselves and the president on occasion.” Obama and the Democrats emerged from the debt and shutdown clash with what they wanted: a reopened government, a higher debt ceiling and a

Republican Party reeling in the depths of public opinion polls. But within days, attention turned to the problem-riddled launch of the 3-year-old health care law’s enrollment stage and revelations that the U.S. had been secretly monitoring the communications of as many as 35 allied leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel. And with new budget talks underway, Democratic Party liberals reiterated demands that Obama not agree to changes that reduce Social Security or Medicare benefits even in the improbable event Republicans agree to increase budget revenues. The fraying on the Democratic Party edges is hardly unraveling Obama’s support and it pales when compared to the upheaval within the Republican Party as it distances itself from the tactics of tea party conser-

renewed attention to his agenda, including passage of an immigration overhaul,

his jobs initiatives and the benefits of his health care law.

Ryan straddling two sides of GOP Red state has one of biggest pushes for healthcare law WASHINGTON (AP) — To hear Rep. Paul Ryan tell it, a bipartisan group of congressional negotiators has the chance to take the first steps toward fixing a serious problem: a debt-ridden federal government facing an onslaught of retiring baby boomers draining entitlement programs. If successful, “we’ll restore confidence in Washington,” Ryan said this week at the start of House-Senate budget talks. “The bar is pretty low right now. Let’s see if we can clear it.” The 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee seemed to suggest a collaborative approach as he started formal talks with Democrats intended to reach a budget agreement by mid-December. The panel could be pivotal in avoiding another government shutdown in January when money is slated to run out again and a debt default in February. From now until a deal is reached, how Ryan comports himself could offer clues about his political future — is he maneuvering for a House leadership position or for a 2016 presidential campaign? The 43-year-old Wisconsin congressman’s remarks and actions in coming weeks also could signal which side of the ideological-pragmatic divide he favors — or whether he can straddle both sides — at a time of deep rifts within the Republican Party between tea party

conservatives and more business-friendly, establishment Republicans. As he usually does, Ryan is warning against drawing any political inferences from his words or actions. “A lot of people just don’t understand me,” Ryan said recently in an interview with The Associated Press. “Look, I am not sitting in my home or in my office thinking about ‘How does this help my personal political career years down the road?’ I am literally thinking about what’s the best way I can do my job today.” The budget negotiations offer Ryan both risks and rewards. If the House-Senate panel fails to reach an agreement, it could put Congress on the path to another government shutdown. Any deal that Ryan helps craft could be used against him in a future campaign while simultaneously incurring the wrath of conservatives if it’s viewed as too accommodating to Obama and Democrats. Yet if Ryan helps broker a deal, even a limited one, it could give him more clout in Congress and allow him to make the case to Republicans that he pushed forward ideas to address the nation’s big economic problems and end a pattern of governing from crisis to crisis. “The difference between running for president and moving up the leadership chain in Congress, especially in the House, is that in the House you

next year and could use his budget work against him in his re-election race in 2014. And voters are watching him closely. While support for him has not waned since Mitt Romney named him his running mate, “at the same time, people want to see answers,” said Republican state Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, who lives in Ryan’s district. If Ryan plays the negotiations correctly, Vos said the congressman could elevate both his position within the House and on the national political stage.

have to prove that you can get stuff done,” said John Feehery, who was a top aide to former House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill. “Sometimes that complicates things if you want to run for president because you have to compromise and that’s not easy.” No matter which path he chooses, Ryan will be gambling that he’s on the right side of the politics — and at a significant time. He remains popular in his congressional district but has attracted two Democratic challengers who hope to unseat him

HOUSTON (AP) — The scene in a city-owned building may look like a hurricane has swept through Houston: Nurses giving vaccine shots, people scurrying around with files and papers and officials leaning over computers helping bleary-eyed parents fill out forms as their children munch on free pretzels. But this is no hurricane. Instead, it is Houston’s offensive to reach more than 1 million people across 600 square miles who don’t have health insurance and connect them with the new federal health insurance program that began accepting applications this month. The push is happening in one of the nation’s reddest states, an example of the gap between the vitriolic political opposition to President Barack Obama’s signature initiative in some conservative bastions and the actual response to it by local officials. “This is the same strategy we use to respond to hurricanes and public health disasters,” said Stephen Williams, director of Houston’s Department of Health and Human Services, who has organized an effort to sign up as

many uninsured people as possible. Republican governors and legislatures in about two dozen states are refusing cooperation with the roll-out of the health overhaul, but some local governments are trying to fill the gap, working with nonprofit organizations, hospitals and churches leading the outreach. After receiving only about $600,000 in federal grant money, Williams put together a 13-county coordinating group with other organizations so they could pool funds, resources and data. He also invested about $600,000 from his own budget. “If you live in Harris County and in the city of Houston you are footing the bill for people that don’t have insurance,” Williams said. “Regardless of all the rhetoric that is going on, people have better access to care when they are insured.” In Harris County, which paid $585 million this year to treat the uninsured in public hospitals and clinics, about 300 county employees have been trained to assist in the enrollment process. The city has provided staff, office space, laptops, air cards and cellphones.
