GOOD MORNING Gas leak causes evacuation at BSU MUNCIE (AP) — A natural gas leak from a damaged line caused about an hour-long evacuation of Ball State University’s football stadium and football training complex. The leak was reported Thursday morning after a construction crew apparently damaged a line near the stadium. The Star Press reports no injuries were immediately reported. Ball State officials asked people to avoid the area on the northwestern edge of the Muncie campus, but issued an all clear late morning saying the leak had been resolved. Officials told those in the nearby alumni center to take shelter in a safe place.

Woman found unconscious Police discover woman after attack; suspect released after alibi checks out BY MIKE MARTURELLO

ANGOLA — A Wolcottville man who was arrested for allegedly battering an Angola woman has been released on his own recognizance after his alibi was confirmed by police. Christopher Allen Hamaker, 42, was released on Thursday afternoon after police checked an alibi he had given during a court hearing earlier in the day.

“His alibi checked out,” said Angola Police Detective Tim Crooks. Hamaker is facing a felony battery charge after police found Hamaker an Angola woman beaten and left unconscious a second time this month. The case remains under

investigation. “They OR’d him until we can have another interview with (the victim),” Crooks said. A no contact order with the victim has been left in place. Crooks said police are trying to determine exactly who would have battered the woman twice this month, both times leaving her unconscious. Hamaker has been released to Clay County authorities where

BRUSHY PRAIRIE — Weather is already having a possible impact on graduation at Prairie Heights. Or at least it is prompting discussion among members of the Board of Education. The board discussed the date of scheduling graduation that Superintendent Alan Middleton said is contingent upon snow days and if they need to be made up. “We talked and with snow days, will finalize by March,” Middleton said. “The difference is Father’s Day and we have many days lost.” Middleton said the concern is the corporation does not want to schedule graduation the same Sunday as Father’s Day. In another matter, the board PHOTO CONTRIBUTED Universe, Shipshewana, which closed in May.

Woman dies in fire SPICELAND (AP) — Authorities say a woman was found dead after a fire in a small central Indiana town that also badly hurt her husband. Firefighters were called about 4 a.m. Thursday to an old barn that had been converted into a home in the Henry County town of Spiceland. Neighbors tell WISH-TV that they stopped the woman’s husband from going back inside the burning home to try and rescue her. Spiceland fire chief Scott Teague says the man was taken by helicopter to an Indianapolis hospital with severe burns. The Star Press reports crews found the woman’s body with the help of a cadaver dog after the fire was extinguished. A cause wasn’t immediately determined for the fire in the 900-person town about 30 miles east of Indianapolis.

75 cents

BARTON LAKE — A 49-year-old camp resort is adding yet one more piece to its offerings as a summer destination point. Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park at Barton Lake, Fremont, has purchased a large aqua play structure with a tipping bucket from Splash Universe, Shipshewana. It is expected to be in place for use by the summer at the Barton Lake resort. It was one of five water features at Splash Universe, which closed in May. It will be added as a separate feature from the park’s current Water Zone. “We have room there and wanted to add another water feature,” said Julie Corcimiglia, co-owner of the resort with her parents, Roger and Anna Barry and family. “We are at the point of looking at capacity.” The park already features three outdoor pools, an indoor pool, splash playground, three water slides, 540 camp sites, 21 cabins and 21 cottages. Corcimiglia said the resort draws 35,000 campers and 200 seasonal users annually. “We’re not sure how many more people we’ll draw,” Corcimiglia said. She declined to share the purchase price of the additional water feature. Corcimiglia said the price for the use of all the water features is included with cost of camping. There are separate fees for non-camping users of all the various water features. Linda Fulton, administrative assistant to the park’s CEO and reservation specialist, said the addition of the piece adds yet one more draw to the camp-resort that employs 125-140 people during peak summertime. Fulton said the Barry and Corcimiglia families try to add a new feature to the camp-resort each year. “Last year, they added floating docks that are Americans With Disabilities Act-complaint. They dredged out the channel,” Fulton said. “They put in jumping pillows.” Fremont Town Manager Chris Snyder said the

Much better than the average bear Target hit


BARTON LAKE — In the world of honors, a longtime camp-resort is proving it is perhaps smarter than the average bear. Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park at Barton Lake Inc., Fremont, has been named Camp Resort of the Year by franchise parent company, Leisure Systems Inc. The camp-resort has been privately owned and operated as a franchise by the families of Roger and Anna Barry since 1965. The park also won the same award in 2006. “It’s a huge honor considering all the quality parks,” said Julie Corcimiglia, co-owner and the Barrys’ daughter. “They give these out on a 20-page inspection. Every year we’re in the top five or 10.” For the honor, the camp-resort received a plaque that was presented at a symposium. “It’s a big deal. You’ve beat out 75 other parks” in the chain, said Linda Fulton, administrative assistant to the park’s CEO Roger Barry and reservation specialist. Judges “visit each and every park and grade it on recreation, housekeeping, amenities and adhering to franchise standards. They (scored) over 100 percent and have exceeded far and above every year.” Corcimiglia said the camp-resort has also won other honors, such as being voted one of nine best in the U.S. by It was also voted top camp resort through the Official Best of Indiana 2013.

Target is grappling with a data security nightmare that threatens to drive off holiday shoppers during the company’s busiest time of year. The nation’s second largest discounter said Thursday that data connected to about 40 million credit and debit card accounts was stolen as part of a breach that began over the Thanksgiving weekend. The data theft marks the second largest credit card breach in the U.S. after retailer TJX Cos. announced in 2007 that at least 45.7 million credit and debit card users were exposed to credit card fraud. Target’s acknowledgement came a day after news reports surfaced that the discounter was investigating a breach. The chain said customers who made purchases by swiping their SEE TARGET, PAGE A10

Teens form philanthropy group BY JENNIFER DECKER

ANGOLA — Some Cahoot’s Coffee Cafe teens want to better the community by taking little steps hoping they will have big impact. Jarod Davis, 15, and Logan McManus, 16, gathered Wednesday to start a philanthropy group and are looking for other teens, ages eighth grade on up, to get involved and join them. Cahoot’s, 218 W. Maumee St., is a joint nonprofit ministry between the Angola United Methodist Church and the First Congregational United Church of Christ serving youth. “Cahoot’s was invited by the Dekko Foundation for a conference for youth pods,” Davis said. Youth pods are arms of community foundations. The conference was held at the Potawatomi Inn. “They want to get more people involved. We want to have a group and see if there’s interest. It’d be nice to start a group here in Angola and help out the community,” Davis said. To begin with, the group will erect a wooden structure at the Pleasant Lake United Methodist Church for those who use the food pantry there. The structure is a free little library called “Reading is to Imagine.” The library will contain some Discover books that are free for borrowing and encourage people to take a book and also return one. Davis said the group would like to eventually add more books to the library. “There were different speakers” at the conference and said “you need a little change to have big reaction to make things better for the community,” Davis said. “There’s groups that do this, but don’t we need more? This could be a starting point for change. We’re looking for people interested in helping make Angola a better place.” McManus said Davis invited him to join the prospective group. “(Davis) started talking about this. I’m

The concert will be held Feb. 15 with more details upcoming. “I was most interested in the all-day music fest,” McManus said, adding he’s self-teaching himself piano and also sings. “We’re looking for musicians now,” said Davis. For more details, call 624-2399.

Gold coin dropped in Mishawaka Salvation Army kettle MISHAWAKA (AP) — The Salvation Army says a donor anonymously dropped a gold Krugerrand coin into one of its red kettles in northern Indiana. Salvation Army Maj. Tim Best says the coin was wrapped in a $100 bill with a typed message that read: “Your Vision Becomes Clear Only When You Look Into Your Heart.” It was dropped into the kettle on Dec. 6. Best says the coin worth an estimated $1,200 was left in a kettle outside a Sam’s Club in Mishawaka, east of South Bend. He says the group received another gold coin in the same red kettle with a similar typed message two years ago.

The Indiana group paid $4,000 for complete sets of “The Birds of America” in 1933 and $900 for “Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America” in 1951 which it will auction in April. The society says the auction of the Indiana collections will allow the society to acquire more state-specific items and increase its storage.



History group to sell Audubons


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indiana group devoted to telling the state’s story will auction works by John James Audubon next spring to raise money to acquire and store items more relevant to its mission. The Indiana Historical Society paid $4,000 for “The Birds of America” in 1933 and $900 for “Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America” in 1951. The two sets together are expected to fetch at least $3.3 million at the Sotheby’s auction in April. “That’s a pretty good rate of return,” society President and CEO John Herbst said Wednesday. Audubon established himself as the United States’ dominant wildlife artist before his death in 1851. His “Birds of America” series was sold by subscription from 1827 to 1838 and featured 435 hand-painted plates depicting America’s native birds. His “Viviparous Quadru-

peds” was published between 1845 and 1854 and includes 150 color lithographic plates. A rare first edition of “Birds of America” and a set of Audubon’s “Ornithological Biography” sold for $7.9 million in 2012. Another complete first edition sold in 2010 for $11.5 million. Indiana Historical Society spokeswoman Amy Lamb said the condition of the group’s collection isn’t as good as those recently sold, which affects the price Sotheby’s estimates it will fetch. Herbst said historical society leaders have been discussing selling the collection for some time because the items don’t fit the society’s focus on Indiana and the old Northwest Territory, and the society isn’t a place that attracts people interested in rare art books. The group held off until now because of the economy. He said auctions are the preferred

way to dispose of items of value for organizations like the society because they have more transparency than arrangements with private buyers. “We’re fortunate on these two items that these were not the gifts of individuals or families,” Herbst said. “Even though people give them to us unconditionally and sign paperwork to that effect, we’re just happy not to have to deal with an emotional attachment to this that might come from donors who might have placed it with us.” Proceeds from the auction will be used to establish an acquisitions fund that will allow the society to compete for items of Indiana interest, such as a Civil War letter written by a black soldier from southern Indiana that sold in March, Herbst said. The money also will pay to expand storage space to accommodate the society’s collections for the next 30 years. “It’s a great trade-off,” he said.

HR,00362990,12/13,20,27,hspaxlp NOTICE OF ADOPTION OF PRELIMINARY DETERMINATION Notice is hereby given pursuant to Indiana Code 6-1.1-20-3.5 that the Board of School Trustees of DeKalb County Central United School District (the "School Corporation") did, on December 19, 2013, make a preliminary determination to enter into a lease for the renovation of and improvements to the DeKalb Middle School and renovation and replacement of a portion of the McKenney-Harrison Elementary School (the "Project"). The lease will be for a maximum term of 12 years with a maximum annual lease rental of $2,600,000. The maximum annual lease rental has been estimated based upon an estimated principal amount of bonds of $18,900,000 and estimated interest rates ranging from 3.00% to 5.00% and total estimated interest costs of $5,025,000. The School Corporation's current debt service levy is $5,098,789 and the

current rate is $0.5113. As required by Indiana Code 6-1.1-20-3.5(b)(1), the following information was available to the public at the public hearing on the preliminary determination: (i) the School Corporation's current and projected annual debt service payments divided by the net assessed value of taxable property within the School Corporation, which is 0.56%; and (ii) the sum of the School Corporation's outstanding long term debt plus the outstanding long term debt of other taxing units that include any other territory of the School Corporation divided by the net assessed value of taxable property within the School Corporation, which is 2.92%. The Project involves the opening of new school facility space; however, the new school facility space will be more efficient than the school facility space which it is replacing. Therefore, the School Corporation expects to not annually incur any increase to operate such new facility space. The School Corporation's current debt service levy is $5,098,789 and the current rate is $0.5113. After the School Corporation enters into the proposed lease and the bonds are issued, the debt service levy will increase by a maximum of $2,600,000 and the debt service rate will increase by a maximum of $0.5113. However, as other debt is repaid, the net increase to the debt service rate is expected to be $0.00. The purpose of the lease is to provide for the construction of the Project. If a valid petition pursuant to Indiana Code 6-1.1-20-3.5 is received by the School Corporation, the proposed debt service or lease payments must be approved in an election on a local public question held under Indiana Code 6-1.1-20-3.6.

Steven Van Zandt is sad Mandela will miss concert NEW YORK (AP) — Steven Van Zandt says his first thought when he heard Nelson Mandela had died “was a selfish one.” Van Zandt, guitarist in Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, said he’d hoped Mandela would be able to attend one of the band’s South African shows next month. He said the trip will be the “first time I’ll be back since my research of ‘84.” That research led him to spearhead a cultural boycott of South Africa, forming Artists United Against Apartheid. Van Zandt released the protest song “Sun City” in 1985 that included influential musicians such as Springsteen, Bob Dylan and Miles Davis. Van Zandt said he met Mandela twice, including at a U.S. reception Van Zandt hosted in 1990. “When I met him, I’d never felt this before or since — I felt like I was meeting a religious figure — like old-time,” the guitarist said. “I mean like Buddha, Jesus, John the Baptist. He had that kind of vibe.” He’s promoting the newly released second season of his Netflix series “Lilyhammer.” It’s about a New York gangster trying to start a new life in Lillehammer and ends up pretty much corrupting everybody around him in the small Norwegian town.

CHICAGO (AP) — The detached dad, turning up his nose at diapering and too busy to bathe, dress and play with his kids, is mostly a myth, a big government survey suggests. Most American fathers say they are heavily involved in hands-on parenting, the researchers found. The nationally representative survey shows fathers’ involvement has increased slightly since the government first asked in 2002, coinciding with research since then that bolsters the benefits of hands-on fathering. The results are encouraging and important “because others have found the more involved dads are, the better the outcomes for their children,” said researcher Jo Jones of the National

Center for Health Statistics, part of the Centers for Disease Control Prevention. She co-authored the report released Friday. More academic success, fewer behavior problems and healthier eating habits are just some of the ways fathers’ involvement has been linked with children’s well-being. “Times have changed,” said Robert Loftus, 34, of Yonkers, N.Y. He quit a six-figure sales job a year ago to care for his two young children while his wife works full time. “We’re trying to rethink our priorities and family seems to be the No. 1 priority whereas in the past maybe people were more focused on career.” The results build on volumes of research showing changes in the American

“He feels like there’s a little criminal in everybody and it’s his job to find it,” Van Zandt said of his character. “And he’s quite successful at that.” Van Zandt says he’ll tour with Springsteen in South Africa and Australia until March, when he will return to Norway to film the third season of “Lilyhammer.”

As for Springsteen’s new album coming out in January, Van Zandt said he doesn’t know if he’ll be on it. “Bruce is recording all the time,” he said, adding that Springsteen often asks him to sing or play something or sends him tapes to work on. “If those things got used or if they didn’t get used I’m not quite sure.”

Van Zandt says he’s happy the E Street Band — which wasn’t inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame with Springsteen in 1999 — will receive the Award for Musical Excellence at this year’s induction ceremony in Brooklyn. “It’s wonderful to be in there with all of our heroes,” he said. “I’m glad it happened.”

family since the baby boom years and before, when women were mostly stay-athome moms and dads were the major breadwinners. As those roles shifted, so did the view that moms are the only nurturers. University of Chicago sociologist Jennifer Bellamy, who also studies fathering, said some old stereotypes persist, “that dads are sort of the co-pilots in their families,” absent or less involved than moms. But she said the survey confirms that fathers “are quite involved in a variety of different and important ways.” The study involved nearly 4,000 fathers aged 15 to 44 who were interviewed in person between 2006 and 2010. One caveat: They self-reported their involvement, without input from their partners or others. Most men were married or living with a partner. Key findings among fathers living with children younger than 5: • 9 in 10 bathed, diapered, helped them use the toilet or get dressed at least several times weekly. • Even higher numbers played with them and ate meals with them that often. • Almost 2 out of 3 read to them at least several times weekly. Among dads living with

kids aged 5-18: • More than 9 out of 10 ate meals with them at least several times weekly and talked with them about what happened during the kids’ day that often. • Almost 2 out of 3 helped with homework several times weekly. • About half took their kids to or from activities that often. Overall, almost 90 percent of dads said they thought they were doing at least a good job of fathering. The researchers noted that during the study years, 45 percent of U.S. men — 28 million — aged 15 to 44 had a biological child. About the same number had a biological, adopted or non-related child living with them or an adopted or biological child living elsewhere. Survey questions were based on whether dads were living with their biological or unrelated kids, or apart. Most lived with their kids. Not surprisingly, men who didn’t were less involved with parenting activities. Even so, several times weekly, at least 1 in 5 still managed to help bathe, diaper, dress, eat or play with their kids. Fathers of older children were generally less involved than those with kids younger than 5 but that’s at least partly due to the changing nature of parenting as children mature.

Children see Santa, not color Minister booted ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — In Atlanta, children of many races share their Christmas wish lists with a black Santa Claus. In Houston, Santa dons a red zoot suit and dances to jazz as he hands out gifts in Mexican-American neighborhoods. In Indian Country, Native American Santas add American Indian attire to their red snowsuits, visiting shops and community centers from the pueblos of New Mexico to the reservations on the Pacific Northwest. Santa Claus may be popularly known as a white-bearded benefactor with Dutch-English origins, but multiethnic versions of Santa are making the rounds out there too — illustrating that in an increasingly diverse United States, Santa takes on whatever color you imagine him to be. “Kids don’t see color. They see a fat guy in a red suit giving toys,” said Dee Sinclair, 50, of Atlanta, who bills himself as the “Real Black Santa” and sports a very real, very white beard to prove it. He said in his 12 years of Santa-dom, he has posed with children and adults of all backgrounds during appearances at art centers, private parties and the occasional suburban Christmas tree lighting. “The character to me is all about the spirit of Christmas,” Sinclair said. “If we leave Christmas to ourselves, we’d be all right.” This holiday season, however, not all reactions to non-white Santas have been jolly. At Indiana University in Bloomington earlier this month, a dormitory bulletin board posed the question, “Can Santa Claus be a black man?” in hopes of generating fruitful discussion about racial stereotypes. Instead, it generated outrage on

social media because it also asked other questions that played to stereotypes, such as whether a black Santa would only visit the ghetto. The display, which a university spokesman described as well-intended but “misguided,” was taken down. Last week, a high school teacher in Rio Rancho, N.M., was disciplined, and apologized, for telling a black student who dressed as Santa Claus, “Don’t you know Santa Claus is white? Why are you wearing that?” The teacher has since been placed on paid administrative leave. Also last week, Fox News host Megyn Kelly sparked a heated debate when she declared on air, “And by the way, for all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white,” during a panel discussion about a blogger’s essay arguing that children of other races could feel alienated by constantly

seeing Santa as white. Kelly later said her comments were motivated by humor, not “by any racial fear or loathing.” That situation was promptly skewered by comics such as Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart and Kenan Thompson of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, who, clad in a full Santa suit and beard, joked about Kelly’s comments and quipped: “You heard of secret Santa? Well, here’s a secret for you: I’m black as heck!” Richard Reyes, 62, of Houston, who has portrayed “Pancho Claus” for 32 years, found this year’s debate over Santa’s race surprising. He has seen Santa transformed into many images for years, he said; In his version, Pancho Claus has a goatee, and accessorizes his zoot suit with sunglasses and a fedora. “For these diverse times, it’s important for children to see Santa in all these different forms,” Reyes said.

Andrew Chesnut, the Bishop Walter F. Sullivan Chair in Catholic Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University, said depictions of Santa Claus as a white man came about mainly because he was a European import, a blend of the Dutch Sinterklaas and British folklore character Father Christmas, with elements of Saint Nicholas, a 4th-century Greek bishop in modern-day Turkey. “But there is no reason he can’t be portrayed as black or Latino,” Chesnut said. “We live in the most pluralist, diverse society on earth and this is going to happen.” Chesnut compared Santa’s evolution to that of La Virgen de Guadalupe, the patron saint of Mexico. That image came from a black Virgin Mary from Spain who transformed into an indigenous icon in the Americas to relate to the population, he said.

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — United Methodist church officials defrocked a pastor from central Pennsylvania on Thursday who violated religious doctrine by officiating his son’s gay wedding, and he later said he was shocked by their decision, calling his involvement in the wedding an “act of love.” Frank Schaefer immediately appealed the penalty, which he believed was meted out reluctantly by many members of the regional Board of Ordained Ministry. “So many of them came to me and they shook my hand and some hugged me, and so many of them had tears in their eyes,” Schaefer said. “They said, ‘We really don’t want to do this, you know that, don’t you?’” John Coleman, a spokesman for the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference of the denomination, said Schaefer left the board no choice after defying the order of a religious jury by refusing to resign. “When asked to surrender his credentials as required by the verdict, he refused to do so,” Coleman said. “Therefore, because of his decision, the board was compelled by the jury’s decision to deem his credentials surrendered.” Schaefer has led a congregation in the central Pennsylvania town of Lebanon more than a decade. Earlier this year, a church member filed a complaint over Schaefer performing the 2007 wedding of his gay son in Massachusetts, where same-sex unions are legal. Although the Methodist church accepts gay and

lesbian members, it rejects the practice of homosexuality as “incompatible with Christian teaching.” Last month, a church jury suspended Schaefer for 30 days and said he should use the time to decide whether he could uphold the church’s Book of Discipline. If he decided he could not, he was told to resign from the clergy by Thursday. Schaefer said he told officials Thursday morning that he could not uphold a book that he feels is contradictory and biased against gay people. He refused to voluntarily surrender his credentials when asked by the board president. “To which she said, ‘Well, we’re taking them.’ And that was the end of it.” Schaefer said. Later, he said, “I said to myself, ‘You know, I just can’t see them taking my credentials.’ I mean what I did was an act of love for my son. And they did anyhow.” Although the Methodist church accepts gay and lesbian members, it rejects the practice of homosexuality as “incompatible with Christian teaching” and bars clergy from performing same-sex unions. The issue has split the nation’s largest mainline Protestant denomination amid a rapid shift in public opinion. Same-sex marriage will soon be legal in 16 states, and opinion polls show that a majority of Americans now support it. Hundreds of Methodist ministers have publicly rejected church doctrine on homosexuality, and some of them face discipline for presiding over same-sex unions.

With the beginning of a new year comes a fresh start. New Year’s resolutions are often made to form good habits and reach new goals. This New Year’s, the American Red Cross encourages people to resolve to help patients in need through regular blood donations. As the winter season continues, blood donations are especially needed. Donations typically decline this time of year, as many regular donors are impacted by inclement weather and seasonal illnesses. There is no better resolution to make this New Year’s than to help save lives with the Red Cross. Give the gift of life and help give patients another year with their loved ones. Make an appointment to donate blood at or 800-RED CROSS. Here are some upcoming blood donation opportunities


Since 1970, National Blood Donor Month has been celebrated to educate Americans about the imporance of regular blood donations. Every day, about 44,000 pints of blood are needed in the U.S. to help treat trauma victims, surgery patients, organ transplant recipients, premature babies and cancer patients. There are nearly 4 million dedicated Red Cross blood donors across the country. Appointments can be made at

To be Meryl Streep takes work


This image released by CBS shows Lucille Ball, center, dressed as Santa Claus in a colorized “I Love Lucy Christmas Special” airing today on CBS.

‘Lucy’ special puts colorization back in spotlight BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

You look at them, and somehow it’s not how they’re supposed to look: Lucy and Ricky, Fred and Ethel, moving around familiar sets doing their familiar “I Love Lucy” thing. And yet they seem more substantial, more real. Because this time, they are rendered in color. Fred looks stylish in light-brown tweed. Ethel is resplendent in a purple Christmas dress. The furniture and carpeting in the Ricardos’ apartment is not gray and grayer but blue and subtly mauve. And Lucy — well, Lucy is her usual ball of chaos, with one key difference: Her red hair, implied over and over during the show’s 1951-57 run, is inevitably, assertively, undeniably, out-of-abottle red. With the “I Love Lucy Christmas Special” (8 p.m. ET Friday), CBS ventures into the world of colorizing two vintage episodes of an Eisenhower-era TV show that, perhaps more than any other from that period, sent a message down through the years of what life in the 1950s (or, at least, the sitcom version) might have looked like. The episodes, CBS says, “were colorized with a vintage look, a nod to the 1950s period in which the shows were filmed.” Which, of course, raises the questions that tend to come about when technology allows us to inject color into the once black-and-white mists of our cultural history: Does it make things better? And should we? Colorization of one sort or another has been around since the earliest photography and the earliest movies, but never has it been so sophisticated. Today, through digital algorithms, chunks of yesterday’s monochromatic pop culture are presented in entirely new ways to both fanfare and scorn. Inevitably, that does two things to the imagery: It looks more vibrant, and it takes a step away from the original. “In colorizing the ‘I Love Lucys,’ there’s an effort to kind of recreate this bright, brilliant, tail-finned polychrome world of the 1950s which existed in part but is kind of romanticized in memory,” says Regina Lee Blaszczyk, author of “The Color Revolution,” a look at how color was marketed to Americans in the 19th and 20th centuries. “We’re trying to re-create this visual culture that never really existed,” she says. All kinds of things that never really existed have entered the realm of the visual in these recent years of technological fast-forward. We exist today in an era when old images can become new images, and vice versa. For each colorized old photograph of an early 20th-century Russian or dust-bowl worker that goes viral on the Internet and makes the past look more

like right now, there are thousands of digitally faded, scratch-filtered images on photo-sharing services like Instagram that make right now look exactly like the past. Figuring it all out — developing a visual literacy for a culture of digital manipulation — can boggle the mind. Dana Keller, a colorizer who specializes in historical photos, adds hues to images of Lincoln, Amelia Earhart and the Hindenburg crash, among others. The results are compelling. His colorization forces us to think of the subjects as more tangible and, somehow, less distant. “When it’s in color, it’s easier to say, ‘Oh those are real people. They’re living lives like I am,’” Keller says. “It’s an opportunity for other people to see it in a new way and feel a bit closer to it. It’s just adding onto it, not replacing it.” Indeed, if you grew up watching “I Love Lucy” during its original run or in perpetual UHF and basic-cable reruns through the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, watching the two colorized “Lucy” episodes is a singular experience. It’s the TV equivalent of adjusting your eyes to Oz after Dorothy lands there from Kansas. Unexpected things “pop” and catch the eye. Ricky’s striped tie, with its bursts of red, makes him even more the dandy. The colored furniture reminds you of something that could be in your own house, not in a TV studio on some distant planet called the past. And when Lucy stomps grapes in a vineyard in the classic episode “Lucy’s Italian Movie,” the juxtaposition of the purple mash with her red hair makes her character seem even zanier than she already was. The late movie critics Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel didn’t like colorization. In a 1986 show about it called “Hollywood’s New Vandalism,” they lamented deals that colorized such classics as “It’s a Wonderful Life,” ”High Sierra” and “The Maltese Falcon” over the objections of the Directors Guild of America.

NEW YORK (AP) — “A big chunk of meat” is how Meryl Streep describes the sprawling, combative dinner scene at the core of “August: Osage County.” In a career filled with sublime crescendos, it’s a showstopper: a knockout feast of everything that has made Streep — perhaps you’ve heard this before? — the greatest American actress. As Violet Weston in John Wells’ adaptation of Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Streep is the pill-addled, venom-spewing matriarch of a large Oklahoma family who, after the funeral for her husband (Sam Shepard), fires all of her bitterness at her gathered family, from the head of the table. It’s comic and caustic: “I’m just truth-tellin’,” she says. It’s a tour de force that looks like fun for an actor, but what it actually took gets to the heart of Streep’s considerable talent. The scene, 18 pages of dialogue (mostly of Violet), took nearly four days to shoot. As Wells’ camera traveled around the table getting each individual performance (the ensemble includes Chris Cooper, Julia Roberts, Margo Martindale, Julianne Nicholson and Benedict Cumberbatch), Streep gave her full performance — varying it slightly from take to take — for each co-star. “It just goes to the deepest part of what I believe about being an actor, that you have to bring it even when the camera’s not on you,” Streep said in a recent interview. “It was very hard to sustain 18 pages of ranting — of seething and waiting and then pouncing and ranting. To maintain your fury. It’s great the first couple times you do it, you feel fantastic. … But by the 12th or 15th or 30th time I had done it, I was flagging. “I looked at it almost like an Olympic (event): OK. Everybody says you’re so good? Well, (expletive) show me! Do it for Benedict Cumberbatch! Do it for Abigail (Breslin) down there at the end! Because now the camera is finally turning around on them and they deserve every bit of it. But that’s acting. It’s just what it is.” What’s left to say about Meryl Streep? Her ability to transform into a role, adopting a constellation of accents over the years, has long been celebrated. Some have questioned whether her technique isn’t too good — too controlled and calculated — but the force of her personality always comes through, endearing audiences to both the actress and her characters. There is, of course, the litany of awards: 17 Oscar nominations and three wins; eight Golden Globes from 28 nominations, including one last week for “Osage County.” Most of her statuettes were accepted with eloquence, humility and an unapologetic mischievousness. When she won her third Oscar for playing Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady” last year, she dismissed the assumed reaction of “Her? Again?” with an eye roll: “But anyway.” Her stature, she says, is

“the narrative that accompanies me like a caboose,” shorthand for “oh, you think you’re so great.” “It’s not anything that’s valuable,” Streep says. “Increasingly, it’s more of an obstruction to be gotten through. I’m not sure there isn’t a point of critical mass where it’s hard to have that stuff go away in order to be seen fresh as a character that you’ve poured yourself into. I don’t know. I just can’t seem to stop because I really like working. I’m just an actor. That’s all.” What most bothers her about her lofty reputation is that it can get in the way of working with other actors: “Sometimes people watch me while I’m in the scene with them, instead of being with me, which is a really disconcerting thing. It’s not good.” Those who work with Streep say she works hard to make it look so easy. Wells said when he first met with Streep about nine months before shooting, she was already working on the character. When rehearsals started, she was off-book. “In some ways she doesn’t get fully credited with how talented she is because there’s a little bit of a dismissive thing which is, ‘Oh, well, it’s Meryl. You know it’s going to be good,’” says Wells. “The assumption that you’re always going to be terrific puts a tremendous additional burden on actually taking the risks that are necessary to continue what you’re interested in doing as an artist.” Despite “the disgruntlement of some,” Streep says, she insisted the cast live together in condos near the on-location set in Oklahoma to foster a familial connection. She and Martindale, who plays her sister, worked “late at night, over the big red” (wine) to make their gestures and speech similar. The dinner scene, Martindale says, was “grueling” for Streep. “She raised the bar so high that everybody was there 150 percent,” says Martindale. “At the end of the film, she was exhausted. She was drained. She gave it her everything, I think.

Streep was nominated for a Golden Globe for best actress in a motion picture musical or comedy for her role in the film.

She does it with ease, or you think it’s with ease.” Streep, though, denies any great preparation for Violet, a smoker with mouth cancer. “You can’t get ready to make a movie. A movie happens right in front of you,” she says. “I’ve had sad and close contact with people who have cancer and are in pain, and I know quite a few drug addicts. And that’s all I needed to know. I didn’t do any prep in that way. But I’m old, so I come with a big bag.” Though Streep, 64, has spent much of the last decade making comedies (“Julie & Julia,” ”It’s Complicated,” ”The Devil Wears Prada”), “Osage County” is a darker turn. Violet has a Midwest tenacity of having lived through the Depression and an abusive childhood. Streep, who grew up in New Jersey, drew partly from her own mother. “There’s a certain kind of impatience with the fact that they coddled their children and then got mad at them for being spoiled rotten,” she says. “My mother would say, ‘You kids are spoiled rotten!’” To describe Violet, she uses the phrase “shrill insanity,” said by Ewan McGregor’s academic character in the film. “I found the experience of making the film much less hilarious because, like all things that are funny, they’re rooted in real pain. Somehow, film brings that up close,” Streep says. “She’s somebody without any stops, no stops on anything — particularly unattractive in a woman. It’s a character I don’t know if people will respond to. I have no idea.” Asked if Streep, who has four children with her husband, sculptor Don Gummer, didn’t also identify as a mother with the generational divide in the Westons, she laughs and replies: “I have different resentments.” Streep has mostly remained on the East Coast, living between New York and northwest Connecticut. She chose family and nature (she has long been an

advocate for organic food) over Hollywood, never setting up a production company to develop parts for herself. “The progression of a career is COMPLETELY random of an actor,” she says. “You’re just completely dependent on what comes over the transom. You don’t know. There’s no strategizing in this business. And if there is, I wish I knew how to do it.” She exudes both city refinement (she’s a particularly sharp conversationalist) and a country wildness (her erupting laugh is still one of her greatest assets). In 2010, she gave a memorable commencement address at Barnard College, telling its female students that when she was young, she “cultivated a softness” to please boys. She used that psychology for “The Deer Hunter” (one of her first big movies, an uncharacteristically simple girlfriend role), but not, it would seem, ever since. At the suggestion that Streep — an ever-changing portrait of female strength — has filled a career countering that youthful yielding, she replies, “Wow, that’s really true.” “Well, I have a job where I get to do a correction,” she says. “Everything is a reaction to something, right?”

Patriarch off ‘Duck Dynasty’ after disparaging gay remarks LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson — suspended from the series indefinitely after making disparaging remarks about gays — is getting some support from key followers. Sarah Palin posted a picture on her Facebook page of her with the reality show clan with the message, “Free Speech is an endangered species.” And Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal also lamented the suspension on free speech terms. “It’s a messed-up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended,” said the governor in a statement Thursday (the show is filmed in his state. A&E announced Wednesday what it called a “hiatus” for Robertson, 67, after he disparaged gays in the January edition of GQ magazine. He also said that, growing up in Louisiana before the Civil Rights movement, he never saw mistreatment of blacks. In a statement, A&E said it was extremely disappointed to see Robertson’s anti-gay remarks, which it said were based on his personal beliefs and do not reflect those of A&E Networks or the show. A&E Networks, a joint venture of The Walt Disney Co. and Hearst Corp., called itself a supporter of the lesbian and gay community. The channel’s move was lauded by the gay and lesbian media advocacy group GLAAD, which had quickly condemned Robertson’s comments.

LONDON (AP) — The roof or ceiling of a London theater partially collapsed Thursday night, showering a packed audience of about 700 with heaps of plaster, wood and dust, authorities and witnesses said. More than 80 people were injured, including at least seven seriously, and several trapped theater-goers had to be rescued. The collapse happened at the Apollo Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue at 8:15 p.m. (2015 GMT; 3:15 p.m.) during a performance of “The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Nighttime” at the height of the Christmas holiday season. “Complete chaos”

erupted in the theater as the debris rained down, said Martin Bostock, who came with his family to see the show, which is based on the best-selling novel by Mark Haddon. “At first we thought it was part of the show,” he told Sky News. “Then I got hit on the head.” Witnesses said audience members were screaming “Get out! Get out!” as they fled the theater and were shaking with fear when they reached the street outside. “Within an instant, the entire roof caved in,” another man told the BBC. A passing public doubledecker bus was commandeered to transport some of

the injured to a hospital. Police said they weren’t aware of any fatalities “at this early stage,” and that those who were seriously injured had been taken to hospitals following the collapse. Dozens of “walking wounded” were treated at a nearby theater, police said, while the fire department reported that all those who had been trapped in the Apollo have been rescued. More than two dozen ambulances and eight fire trucks were sent to the scene. Shaftesbury Avenue, normally one of London’s busiest streets and teeming with pedestrians, was completely shut down.

TARGET: Company employs firm to probe breach FROM PAGE A1

cards at terminals in its U.S. stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15 may have had their accounts exposed. The stolen data includes customer names, credit and debit card numbers, card expiration dates and the three-digit security codes located on the backs of cards. The data breach did not affect online purchases, the company said. The stolen information included Target store brand cards and major card brands such as Visa and MasterCard. The Minneapolis company, which has 1,797 stores in the U.S. and 124 in Canada, said it immediately told authorities and financial institutions once it became aware of the breach on Dec. 15. The company is teaming with a third-party forensics firm to investigate and prevent future breaches. The breach is the latest in a series of technology crises for Target. The company faced tough criticism in late 2011 after it drummed up hype around its offerings from Italian designer Missoni only to see its website crash. The site was down most of the day the designer’s collection launched. The company angered customers further with numerous online delays for products and even order cancellations. But the credit card breach poses an even more serious problem for Target and threatens to scare away shoppers who worry about the safety of their personal data. “A data breach is of itself a huge reputational issue,” said Jeremy RobinsonLeon, a principal at Group Gordon, a corporate and crisis public relations firm. He noted that Target needs to send the message that it’s rectifying the problem and working with customers to answer questions. He believes Target should have acknowledged the problem on Wednesday rather than waiting until early Thursday.

WASHINGTON (AP) — With control of the Senate at stake in next year’s elections, President Barack Obama’s decision to name retiring Democratic Sen. Max Baucus as ambassador to China sets off a chain reaction that could give the White House and Democrats an edge in preventing Republicans from gaining a Senate majority. The beneficiaries could be Montana’s Lt. Gov. John Walsh, a Democrat seeking Baucus’ seat, and, thanks to the dominoes of Senate seniority, Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, who is facing a difficult re-election. The advantages would be on the margins, potentially giving the two Democrats a slight boost. But in a series of close elections with Republicans needing to gain a net of six seats to recapture control of the Senate, any lift for

would give the Democratic candidate close to 10 months in the job and higher visibility against the likely Republican candidate, first-term Rep. Steve Daines. On leaving the Senate, Baucus would give up the gavel of Finance Committee chairman. Potential replacements are Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., who has announced he won’t seek another term, or Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore. If Wyden assumes the chairmanship, then Landrieu would be on track to take over the Senate Energy Committee that Wyden currently chairs. For Landrieu, the chairmanship of the Energy Committee would give her greater influence over energy policy, an important perk for Louisiana where offshore drilling is a major part of the state’s economy.

CHARGE: Woman was found unconscious in road FROM PAGE A1

lieu of $50,000 bail in the Steuben County Jail before his release late in the afternoon Thursday. In his initial hearing Thursday, when asked by Magistrate Randy Coffey if he had any questions about his bail, Hamaker tried to get the charge dropped. “I’d actually move to have this dismissed. According to this (court paperwork) I have about 30 people who could place me at work in Kendallville,” Hamaker said. “From a preliminary phone call, I would believe that is correct,” Crooks said. The local case was initiated when Angola Police were called to the victim’s residence for a welfare check after she failed to

report to work on Dec. 13, court documents said. When officers arrived at her home, she was found unconscious on the floor. The woman was taken to Cameron Memorial Community Hospital where she later regained consciousness and was treated for her injuries. The woman, who reluctantly told police about the incidents, said she did not remember being strangled or “anything else until she woke up in the hospital,” court records said. She sustained multiple bruises and had marks on her neck that appeared to be caused by a belt, court records said. Police later found in the woman’s home the belt they believed was

used to cause the marks and possibly render her unconscious. Last week, the woman told police she and Hamaker had not seen each other since the early 1990s, then he reconnected with her recently. The victim told police Hamaker had been trying to get money from her, but she had refused. On Dec. 4 the woman was found by police, lying unconscious in an Angola street near her home. Court records said the woman still had marks from that incident when she was hospitalized a week later, on Dec. 13. A woman who said she was Hamaker’s wife told Coffey Angola attorney Allen Stout was being retained as counsel.

Democrats could help them retain control and protect Obama’s agenda. Though the White House has yet to announce the nomination, several Democratic officials confirmed it and White House spokesman Jay Carney noted that Baucus “has been directly engaged for more than two decades in work to deepen the relationship between the United States and China.” It’s not the first time an ambassadorship to China would have protected Obama’s political flanks. He nominated Jon Huntsman in 2009, essentially sidelining a potential Republican presidential adversary in the 2012 election. If Montana’s Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock appoints Walsh to fill the Baucus seat, as widely expected, that

Briefly • Hostetler named 2A Runner of the Year The Indiana Association of Track & Cross Country Coaches announced on Thursday on its website ( that Fremont senior Abby Hostetler was named the state’s Class 2A Runner of the Year for girls cross country. Hostetler earned her third podium finish in her fourth state finals meet with a careerbest seventh-place finish in her final state meet on Nov. 2 on the LaVern Gibson Championship Course in Terre Haute. That helped her be selected as an Indiana All-Star. Hostetler is the first Eagle harrier to ever run in four Indiana High School Athletic Association state cross country meets. South Adams junior Sawyer Miller was named Runner of the Year for the boys in Class 2A. Bellmont sophomore Bailey Beery was picked as the girls’ 3A Runner of the Year. The Fremont girls cross country team was honored at halftime of the Eagles’ boys varsity basketball game Thursday with Lakewood Park Christian.

FREMONT — Young boys basketball teams from Lakewood Park Christian and Fremont were engaged in an action-packed non-conference affair Thursday night. The Panthers started well, but needed a game-winning shot in the final minute and survived three Eagle chances to prevail 62-61. Noah Gardner’s running right-handed shot from the edge of the key went off the glass and in to be the difference in the game for Lakewood Park (3-3). Fremont could not convert on three chances around the basket the rest of way. The Eagles (0-4) trailed for much of the game, but led 61-58 with 1 minute, 59 seconds left after freshman Logan Pentecost made two free throws. “They did take a lead, but we didn’t collapse,” Panthers coach Chad Hibbard said. “We gave ourselves a chance to win because we competed and gave it 100 percent. “When we were up five in the fourth, we went to our spread offense that was tailor-made for us when we have a lead. We were not stalling, but we were in a rush. Fremont kept battling.” LPC jumped out to a 17-5

lead late in the first quarter. But key Panthers got into foul trouble and were relegated to the bench. Fremont capitalized in the second quarter. The Lakewood players in foul trouble were not forced back into duty, and the Eagles drew even at halftime at 30. Lakewood Park built a lead to start the third quarter. But Fremont freshman Wade Regadanz kept his team around in the second half. Regadanz had 17 of his 27 points in the final 16 minutes, and tied a school record with seven made three-pointers. He also had 10 rebounds and five steals. Regadanz’s seventh triple got Fremont within one at 56-55 with 3:33 left. Regadanz had a layup off an Eagle steal shortly after to put the Eagles in front 57-56. Jared Gerke had nine of his 20 points in the fourth quarter for the Panthers. He also had eight rebounds and three steals. LPC also had 13 points from Drake Donaldson, nine points from Austin Mann and eight from Gardner. Hunter Yoder had four points, seven rebounds and four assists. Bradey Gerke had four points and five boards. It was a game that had plenty of missed opportunities from shots around the basket and at the foul SEE FREMONT, PAGE B2

assist earlier in the game. Giordano’s power-play goal tied it at 2 for Calgary at 15:53 of the second period. He beat Gustavsson with a shot from the high slot just after a two-man Flames’ advantage ended. Andersson gave the Red Wings a 2-1 lead with 8:22 left in the second when Alfredsson’s shot deflected in off his skate. It was Andersson’s fifth goal. Alfredsson opened the scoring just 26 seconds into the game when he put in a loose puck from the slot for his eighth goal. Backlund tied it at 5:11 with his fifth goal. He flipped in the puck after it caromed off the end boards. Notes: Calgary C Mike Cammalleri returned after missing the previous game due to an illness.

Eagles lose at Westview FREMONT: Turnovers BY JAMES FISHER

EMMA — Every game counts when the goal is a conference title. And in the Northeast Corner Conference girls basketball race, nothing less than perfect will do. It’s taken an unbeaten 10-0 record to come away with a conference title the last three seasons. Westview has completed half the task, moving to 5-0 in the NECC with a 64-45 victory over Fremont on Thursday. “Our goals are still in place,” said Westview coach Randy Yoder. “One of our goals is to win conference. We had a good week with wins over Angola and Fremont, both good programs.” Angola captured the last two NECC titles with 10-0 records. Fairfield went 10-0 to capture the league crown the year before. Westview cleared a huge hurdle when the squad defeated Angola 51-46 on Tuesday. “Each game, if you want to keep the goal intact, you have to stay focused,” Yoder said. “There’s always that chance if you’re not ready to play someone will beat you.” Fairfield remains the only other NECC team without a loss at 4-0. Westview and Fairfield won’t meet until Jan. 24 in a contest the Falcons will host. Sophomores led the Warriors in scoring. Grace hales had a game-high 20 points and Maria McCoy scored 12 points. Junior Kristen Duff finished with 10 points and senior Brooke Yoder had nine. Also scoring for Westview were Sidney Byrkett (8 points), Riley Hochstetler (3) and Kaitlyn Warren (2). “It’s hard to beat a team that has balanced scoring, because a team can’t focus on one player,” Yoder said. Fremont was led by 19 points from Shae Rhonehouse. Also scoring for the Eagles were Melissa Beer (10),

still an issue Thursday with 22 giveaways FROM PAGE B1


Fremont’s Shae Rhonehouse takes a shot on Thursday at Westview. Rhonehouse led Fremont with 19 points in a 64-45 loss at Westview.

Miranda White (8), Kayla Stroup (6) and Mercedes Lyon (2). The Eagles are 2-2 in the NECC and 5-4 overall. Fremont has league wins over Central Noble and Lakeland. Westview improved to 9-2 overall and won its sixth-straight, the most since 2007-08 when the team went on a 12-game rampage. The Eagles hung with Westview for a quarter and a half. “For a quarter and a half the game was flowing our way,” said Fremont coach Neal Frantz. Back-to-back scores by Stroop and Beer gave Fremont a 15-11 lead three minutes into the second period. Only trouble was, those would be the final field goals for the Eagles in the half. Westview followed the Fremont buckets with a 3-pointer from Yoder and then went ahead to stay when Hales scored on a drive up the lane.

The Warriors also got a 3-pointer from Hales and Westview scored the final seven points of the half. Hales began the 7-0 spurt that closed the half with a score on a drive to the basket, with Duff scoring four points during the effort. McCoy also had a free throw. Up 30-19 at the break, Westview would hold the Eagles scoreless for the first three minutes of the second half to move ahead by 18, at 37-19. If that wasn’t enough, the Warriors produced a 13-2 run late in the third period to lead 50-25 after three quarters. “They have skilled players, two great sophomores and a great guard,” Frantz said of the Warriors. “Fairfield and Westview are the two teams that have stepped to the front of the pack.” The Warriors close out the 2013 portion of their schedule with a girls and boys doubleheader at home with Lakeland on Dec. 28.

line. Fremont was 13-of-20 from the charity stripe while the Panthers were just 9-of-20. But turnovers were once against the biggest problem for the Eagles as they ended up with 22 giveaways. “Practice will take care of some of that,” Fremont coach Ted Bookwalter said. “It’s been a learning exercise. We’ve been right in games. The kids are coming around. “Our freshmen stepped up. Wade showed what he is capable of doing and does a good job defensively getting hands on balls. Pentecost is a good on-the-ball defender. “The guys are giving me everything they have. If we continue to do that, we’ll get better.” Alex Beams and Logan Peel each had 13 points for the Eagles. Beams added four rebounds, four assists and two steals. Peel also grabbed four rebounds. Tony LaRose had seven rebounds and three steals while Tyler Meyer grabbed six boards. Fremont seniors Kaleb Hayes and Ryan Sichling will make their season debut Monday in the Eagles’ makeup game with Northeast Corner Conference rival Hamilton. Hayes and Sichling have not played yet this season because they both violated team rules.

She also had 54 total blocks, including 34 assists, received serve at a 96.4 percent clip and had a 91.2 serve percentage. She played in 28 of Newberry’s 31 matches and made 27 starts.

She is the Wolves’ career leader in digs with 1,686 and kills with 1,572, and is also in the top 10 in career total blocks and career aces. Parrish led Newberry to its third straight NCAA Division II Tournament this fall. The seventh-seeded Wolves lost their first-round regional match to Division II No. 17 Armstrong 21-25, 25-18, 25-15, 25-23 on Dec. 5 at Wingate, N.C.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Lakers’ Bryant likely to miss six weeks with knee fracture EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) — Kobe Bryant is expected to miss about six weeks with an injured left knee. The Lakers said Thursday that an MRI showed Bryant has a fracture of the lateral tibial plateau of his knee. The team said Bryant had hyperextended the knee in Tuesday night’s game at Memphis. The injury is the latest setback for the Lakers star, who had only returned to the court on Dec. 8 after nearly eight months away because of a torn Achilles tendon. Los Angeles had signed the fourthleading scoring in NBA history to a two-year contract extension last month. Bryant’s new deal is reportedly worth $48.5 million and takes him into his 20th season with the Lakers.

Youth safety program gets medical nods INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — USA Football’s Heads Up Football program has become the first youth sports program to earn official support from three major medical entities. The American College of Sports Medicine, the National Athletic Trainers Association, and the Professional Football Athletic Trainers Society, organizations representing more than 80,000 medical professionals, have approved the youth football initiative. The PFATS is the latest to partner with USA Football to advance youth and high school football player safety by endorsing Heads Up Football. PFATS includes more than 100 certified athletic trainers who serve NFL teams. Nearly 2,800 youth football leagues representing approximately 600,000 players in 50 states and Washington, D.C., have registered for Heads Up Football in 2013. The program is being piloted on the high school level this fall in 35 schools spanning 10 states. “Athlete safety is advanced through education, and that is the heart of USA Football’s Heads Up Football program,” PFATS President John Norwig said. “Education converts awareness into action. This program is establishing needed standards and behavior modification built upon the best medical science and research. Young athletes deserve this level of commitment. We are proud to endorse it.” Heads Up Football includes coach certification, safer tackling techniques, concussion recognition and response protocols approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and proper equipment fitting instruction. USA Football is the official youth football development partner of the NFL.

Heat’s James atop newest list of NBA jersey sales MIAMI (AP) — LeBron James of the Miami Heat again tops the NBA’s list of top-selling jerseys. The most recent list is based on overall sales in the fourth quarter of this year, along with Black Friday and Cyber Monday holiday sales. Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers is No. 2 on the list, followed by Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls, Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks. Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors is on the list for the first time at No. 6. Other first-timers on the list include James Harden of the Houston Rockets (No. 12) and Paul George of the Indiana Pacers (No. 14). Michael Carter-Williams of the Philadelphia 76ers is the lone rookie, checking in at No. 15.

White through safely to finals at U.S. Grand Prix COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. (AP) — Shaun White qualified for slopestyle finals at the U.S. Grand Prix on Thursday, guaranteeing himself the top-30 finish he needed to be eligible for the Sochi Olympics. Less than a week after hurting his left ankle during a halfpipe contest, White tried a conservative first run, then added an extra revolution to his last jump on his second trip down the mountain. He scored 85.66 points to finish third in his heat and earn a place in the 16-man final Sunday. “It’s kind of strange doing an event aiming for the top 30 because I always try to win the thing,” White said. “I’m really glad I got the pressure off me on the first run. I feel good. I’m happy I got the score and made it to the finals.” White skipped the halfpipe contest this week to be sure he was healthy enough for slopestyle — the event where he still needed the top-30 finish in this World Cup contest, which is a minimum international requirement for any potential Olympian. White still needs to qualify for one of the three spots on the U.S. team. Copper Mountain is the second of five selection events. The two-time Olympic champion in halfpipe hadn’t seen the course in Copper Mountain until Thursday and said he “kind of slammed things together” for his run. But he said his ankle was feeling well and he would probably go bigger in the finals Sunday.

Combustible dust rules important First it was going to be in the spring of 2011. Then the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration said November. That’s when they would convene a panel to consider a rule to protect workers from combustible dust and how any rules would affect small businesses. Now, OSHA says April 2014, maybe. Unglamorous as it may be, controlling combustible dust, not just in coal mines, is a significant safety issue for workers across the country, whether workers realize it or not. The U.S. Chemical Safety Board has investigated numerous accidents and deaths that turned out to have combustible dust in common, even among different industries. A report from the Center for Public Integrity found that since 1980, dust has been involved in more than 450 accidents, killed almost 130 people and injured 800, and those numbers are probably underreported. The Chemical Safety Board recommended that the federal government issue safety standards for general industry to prevent dust fires and explosions. The rule should be based on the National Fire Protection Association’s standards and cover hazard assessment, engineering controls, housekeeping, building design, explosion protection, operating procedures and worker training. Of course, it’s hardly a surprise that this safety issue gets bumped down the Obama administration priority list. It seems every time the administration makes a move on something like worker safety or environmental protection, they get nothing but grief, even from places such as West Virginia, from the governor to lawmakers to union and business leaders. The president might expect a place so historically blue-collar as West Virginia would welcome efforts that protect workers, but he is probably not counting on it. No one wants a rule that industry is unable to follow, or another death or injury from a preventable cause. That’s why OSHA should get this panel convened and sensible rules enacted.

Letters to The Editor • Words are very important

Let your blue lights shine

To the editor: I’m writing in response to the article Sunday, Dec. 15, “Words complicate gay marriage debate.” “Words complicate” sounds funny from a man who has earned a good living from them. Words also define. If you use a spell checker and grammar checker then you know there are absolutes. Even changing one letter can change the definition, or at worse yet, make you sound unintelligent. Words are very important. Especially this time of the year when we celebrate “The WORD” becoming flesh. If there are no rules or absolutes in literature or writing, then we might be able to say, “Did God really say …” Genesis 3:1. But there are absolutes.

To the editor: Join Concerns Of Police Survivors as part of Project Blue Light and let your blue lights shine for law enforcement during the holidays. Remember, the color blue is also a symbol of peace. When you display your blue lights, you’ll be sending a dual message to everyone driving by that you support America’s peacekeepers, and that you hope the coming year will be a time of peace. The idea began in 1989 when Mrs. Dolly Craig wrote to C.O.P.S. that she would be putting two blue candles in her living room window that holiday season. One for her son-in-law, Daniel Gleason, who had been killed in the line of duty while serving with the Philadelphia (Pa.) Police Department on June 5, 1986, and Charles H. Summers one for her daughter and Danny’s wife, Garrett Pam, who had been killed in an automo-

Charleston (W.Va.) Gazette

bile accident in August 1989. Danny and Pam had six children. Dolly Craig is now deceased as well, but her idea is her legacy. Project Blue Light now burns bright in the hearts of the nearly 32,000 survivors of America’s fallen law enforcement officers during the holiday season. C.O.P.S. adopted this idea as a way for everyone to honor the officers who serve and protect us while remembering those who have died in the line of duty. Project Blue Light has grown steadily as a way of remembering our departed law enforcement officers across America. The concept is simple. Place a single blue light in your window in memory of fallen officers. At this time of year, ornamental light fixtures, such as candlestick replicas, are easy to come by and serve this purpose well.

Santa Claus and the children have it under control Katelyn was talking to Santa at the mall. When her mother Dawn asked Santa what Katelyn wants for Christmas, Santa winked and told Dawn, “It is between Katelyn and me. It is already taken care of and on my list!” — Dawn Keen of New Mexico Dawn has been trying to get Katelyn to eat more vegetables. When Dawn put carrots on Katelyn’s plate, Katelyn said, “I don’t want those.” Dawn told her she needs to eat them because they will make her strong. Katelyn replied, “I talked to my stomach and it said it doesn’t need carrots today. My muscles say they are strong enough too!” When Gloria’s daughter, Connie, was going into first grade, she asked her dad, “People who speak different languages than we do … do they have different voice boxes?” — Gloria Gordon of Bluffton (Connie is now in her 50s.) When Connie got ready to go into first grade Gloria took her to buy some dresses. She was a little plump and they had two dresses that Connie and Gloria both liked. Gloria decided to buy them both, even though they were both the same. At school

when Connie started down the slide, her dress caught and tore. Gloria brought the other dress for Connie to change into. When the students saw Connie in the new dress (identical to the torn one) they said, “Boy, your mom is a good sewer!” About four years ago Linda’s grandson GRACE Ean (now 12) from Tennessee was HOUSHOLDER visiting (along with Linda’s daughter and son-in-law) at Christmas time. They enjoyed an outing to a pizza place with games and prizes. When they returned, Ean proudly displayed a ukulele he had gotten with the tickets he won. Linda explained to him that the ukulele comes to us from Hawaii. Ean looked at his instrument, turned it over, and said, “Not mine. It came from China!” — Linda Wingfield (grandmother) of Kendallville

granddaughter Lily that she had seen very large birds (maybe vultures) sitting on the beach while she was walking her dog at Bixler Lake Park. Linda noted that she frequently saw gulls and geese but seeing the very large vultures or hawks was new for her. Lily said, “Well, Nana, they might have been on break.” In church the sermon was about Jesus being, among other names, the Prince of Peace. Lily leaned over and whispered to Linda, after seeing that phrase projected onto the screen at the front of the sanctuary, “I thought it was the Prince of Pizza!” (She was probably pulling Linda’s leg.) Lily has always loved church. When she was 3 or 4, after Children’s Church, her mom, Lucinda, asked her what the lesson had been. Lily replied, “We learned about Jesus and the monkey in the tree!” Not familiar with that story, her mother asked the teacher about it and learned it was from Luke 19, the story of Zacchaeus, who climbed a tree to hear Jesus preach. Thank you to everyone who contributes stories. If you have a story to share

It’s that time of the year! Christmas lights, cameras, actions! “You can see it from space!” Kirby complained about his next-door neighbor’s Christmas lawn display. In his living room, at 9 p.m., with the curtains drawn and the lights off, it was as bright as daylight. The only difference was that daylight doesn’t twinkle and blink in different colors. “Did you see the six wise men?” he asked. “I thought there were only three wise men,” I said. “And I thought people were smaller back then. These guys are two feet taller than I am. I thought maybe they were the three wise men’s bodyguards.” “It started out with three — until another three went on sale right after Christmas last year. Next year there may be nine. Who knows? And what did you think of their camel train?” “Is that what that is supposed to be? I thought they were creatures

“That’s isn’t a drum, it’s artillery.” “No, Barry’s turned his entire roof into a speaker. Wait until you hear ‘Silent Night.’ It’s done by a marching band of life-size mechanical tin soldiers.” What I had mistaken for a natural disaster was starting to vaguely sound like a booming pa-rum-pum-pum-pum. From inside Kirby’s house, it sounded like one of those cars that go by with the music blaring and the windows up so all you can hear is the DNA-splitting bass. It was very hard to nail down any melody. “I know this will sound as if I don’t have any Christmas spirit, but can’t you put out a hit on your neighbor? Just have somebody whack him?” “No, because then I’ll look like the bad guy.” “People can be so judgmental.”

Couple need compromise on his time with friends DEAR ABBY: I have been married to my wife for a year and a half, and we have an infant child. I work while my wife stays home. My problem is she doesn’t like me playing sports and hanging out with friends. I have tried to make concessions and cut down playing sports to once a week. (I used to play two or three times a week, but that’s not good enough for my wife.) On game night, when I get home she gives me the silent treatment. She used to come to my games but won’t now, even though she has girlfriends who attend them. As for hanging out with my friends, I barely see them anymore — and when I do, they come here. If they stay any longer than 30 minutes, it causes a problem and my wife again won’t talk to me for the rest of the night. I have tried to compromise, but she feels as though




any time I spend away from her and the baby is a no-no. Am I wrong to want to play sports and see my guy friends? I have tried talking to DEAR her about ABBY this, but she thinks any compromise Jeanne Phillips ismebasically doing what I want and her having to deal with it. — ONTARIO, CANADA, READER DEAR READER: You should not become a couch potato or become isolated from your friends because you are married and a parent. And neither should your wife. She may resent the time you spend with your friends

because she’s stuck at home taking care of the baby. You are her only adult company, and in a way she may be jealous that you’re enjoying freedom that she can’t. Your wife should not be doing all the parenting. One day or evening a week YOU should take care of the baby while SHE takes a break with her friends or family. It could do wonders for your relationship. If you can agree on this, it could save your marriage. If you can’t, then the two of you should get counseling. Marriage isn’t supposed to put people in isolation — and that’s what it appears your wife is trying to accomplish with you.

Keep advance medical directives handy medical treatment. But as long as you are able to communicate decisions, your word overrides anything you’ve written. In fact, I think of my advance directives as my way of maintaining control over how I am treated, I ASK should become DOCTOR K. critically ill. Advance directives Dr. Anthony enable you to choose the Komaroff person (your agent) who will make medical decisions for you when you are unable to do so. Using directives, you may offer as much or as little guidance as you like. Many people

understandably want to keep their advance directives in a secure place. But if these documents are locked away in a safe-deposit box, they won’t be much help if you’re unexpectedly hospitalized. Here are some people who should have copies of your advance directives and other places they should be filed: • Your health care agent. • Your doctor. A copy of your advance directives should be in your file and medical record. • Your hospital chart. If there is one hospital where your doctor is likely to hospitalize you, ask to have a copy of your advance directives put in your chart. • A safe spot in your home. File the original documents in a secure place in your home. Tell your agent, family and friends where you put them.

DEAR DOCTOR K: This isn’t really a medical question, but I hope you’ll answer it anyway. Where should I keep my advance medical directive? DEAR READER: You raise an important issue, and I’m happy to address it. In fact, your question is timely, because I have just discussed with my lawyer where to store my advance medical directive. Let me tell you what I’ve learned. For readers who are not familiar with the term, advance directives are documents that allow you to describe what kind of medical care you hope to receive if an accident or illness renders you unable to communicate. The healthcare power of attorney, living will and do-not-resuscitate order (DNR) are all advance directives. Some people worry that advance directives mean giving up control over their


• Carry it with you. Put a card with your health care agent’s name and contact information and where you’ve put the original copy of your directives in your wallet or purse. • In the glove compartment of your car. A colleague of mine recommended this, and it seems like a good idea to me. When I completed my first advanced medical directive, I was a healthy adult in mid-life. I had a very small risk of becoming seriously ill. But I wondered why it had taken me so long. At any age, and in any state of health, bad things can happen. Hopefully, that time will never come for me. But if it does, I want to control how I’m treated. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is
