Pokagon eagles are doing just fine



Ball State University President Jo Ann Gora has sent a letter to faculty and staff saying intelligent design is not appropriate content for science courses. The letter distributed Wednesday says intelligent design is overwhelmingly deemed by the scientific community as a religious belief. Gora says discussions of intelligent design and creation science can have their place in humanities or social science courses, but professors must avoid endorsing a point of view. The state-supported university in Muncie recently came under scrutiny for hiring a science professor who wrote a book on intelligent design and another professor was accused of teaching creationism. The Freedom From Religion Foundation had filed a complaint claiming a class violated separation of church and state. Foundation attorney Andrew Seidel says he’s pleased by Gora’s letter.

Southern Indiana gets new area code

Multiple agencies take down Hudson operation

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission has approved a new area code for southern Indiana to address its dwindling number of available telephone numbers. The IURC said Wednesday the new 903 area code will be an overlay inside the existing 812 area code. Customers seeking new land lines or wireless numbers in that area will get the new 903 area code. IURC spokeswoman Danielle McGrath says telecommunications companies must submit plans within 45 days for how they’ll implement the change, which should be in place by late next summer. The change will mean that residents in the existing 812 area code will need 10-digit dialing for all calls, regardless of whether they are local or long distance. The 812 area code was created in 1947.

ANGOLA — Three northeast Indiana residents were arraigned Wednesday on a variety of charges related to a methamphetamine sting that occurred late Tuesday and early Wednesday. Facing Steuben Circuit Court Judge Allen Wheat were Stacy L. Hicks, 44, Corunna; Sharon K. Schimpf, 35, Butler; and Loeta Dickerson L. Dickerson, 55, Hudson. During the day Tuesday, Hicks allegedly sold meth to a confidential informant in exchange for $275 and over-thecounter cold medicine used in Hicks the manufacture of methamphetamine, court documents said. After receiving a search warrant early Wednesday, police from multiple agencies went to the home Schimpf of Dickerson in Hudson, where they found meth being made in the garage and other items associated with meth, court documents said. Because the residence is within 1,000 feet of a town park, many of the charges were enhanced. Hicks, was charged with manufacturing meth within 1,000 feet of a public park, a Class A felony, and possession of two or more chemicals or reagents with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a public park, a Class C felony. Hicks is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail and is facing up to 58 years in prison. Benjamin Nordmann was appointed counsel for Hicks. Schimpf was charged with SEE BUST, PAGE A10

Regional Roundup • Man dies after Huntington YMCA lifting accident HUNTINGTON — An Alaska man with ties to Huntington died after a weight-lifting accident at the Parkview Family Huntington YMCA. The Herald Press reported Connor Jepsen, 22, of Anchorage, Alaska, died on Monday. The Allen County Coroner’s Office said the cause of death will be announced in six to eight weeks, as various tests need to be performed. Huntington County Sheriff Terry Stoffel said the sheriff’s department responded to a call Friday at the Y. “We got word that somebody had a weight they were bench pressing and fell on their chest or he couldn’t get it up and it just compressed his chest,” he said. “When he was found, he was blue.” Stoffel said Jepsen was airlifted to Fort Wayne, where he later died. Because one of his deputy reserve officers works at the Y, Stoffel said he had the detective hand the case over the Indiana State Police to do the investigation. Sgt. Ron Galaviz of the Indiana State Police said an investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Indiana welfare security breach limited to 64 clients INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana welfare officials say a security breach revealed 16 clients’ Social Security numbers to other clients and the sharing of other personal information for 48 other clients. The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration on Wednesday disclosed those results of a review of all documents

possibly involved in the security breach. The FSSA contractor whose computer programming error led to the security breach — RCR Technologies Inc. — performed the document review. When FSSA revealed the breach a month ago, it said it possibly affected more than 187,000 clients. FSSA says it will inform the clients whose information was breached that they will receive free credit monitoring paid for by RCR. FSSA also has directed RCR to put a plan in place to prevent future security breaches.

Parts of 5 Indiana counties exceed new EPA standard INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Regulators say parts of five Indiana counties with older, coal-fired power plants don’t meet a new federal standard for the pollutant that causes acid rain and aggravates respiratory ailments. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says parts of central Indiana’s Marion and Morgan counties, southwestern Indiana’s Daviess and Pike counties and western Indiana’s Vigo County exceed the agency’s beefed-up sulfur dioxide standard. That colorless gas that smells of rotten eggs contributes to the formation of acid rain that damages lakes, streams and forest ecosystems and worsens people’s breathing problems. Indiana regulators have 18 months to draft a plan detailing how the areas intend to come into compliance with the standard within five years. An environmentalist says the pollution woes are the legacy of Indiana’s overwhelming reliance on

coal for power.

Semi goes atop truck in fatal crash LOWELL (AP) — A semitrailer cab drove onto the top of a pickup truck in a crash on Interstate 65 in northwestern Indiana that police say killed the truck’s driver. State police say 52-yearold Jim Uildriks of the White County town of Monon was driving behind a semi that had stopped because of construction up ahead when his truck was hit from behind by another semi and forced into the trailer in front of him. The crash happened Wednesday morning near the Indiana 2 interchange in southern Lake County, about 20 miles south of Gary. The northbound lanes of I-65 were closed for nearly four hours. Police say Uildriks was pronounced dead at the scene while both semi drivers were taken to a Crown Point hospital with complaints of pain.

4-year-old girl is shot by brother PORTLAND (AP) — Authorities in eastern Indiana say a 4-year-old girl was shot in the head when she dashed in front of her 8-year-old brother while he was target shooting. Jay County sheriff’s Capt. Patrick Wells tells WISH-TV that the shooting of Madison Dyer was a tragic accident. The Star Press reports Madison was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital after the shooting Sunday night at a home near Portland but that a hospital spokesman said he couldn’t give an update on her condition. Police say several adults and children were around a campfire while the boy was shooting a .22-caliber rifle and Madison ran into the line of fire.

House ready to lower student loan rates

Economy grew at sluggish pace in second quarter WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. economy grew from April through June at an annual rate of 1.7 percent — a sluggish pace but stronger than in the previous quarter. Businesses spent more, and the federal government cut less, offsetting weaker spending by consumers. The government on Wednesday sharply revised down its estimate of growth in the JanuaryMarch quarter to a 1.1 percent annual rate from a previously estimated 1.8 percent rate. Though growth remains weak, the pickup last quarter supports forecasts that the economy will accelerate in the rest of the year. Economists think businesses will step up investment, job growth will fuel more consumer spending and the drag from government cuts will fade. If so, the Federal Reserve could scale back its stimulus later this year. The April-June growth figure indicates that “the recovery is gaining momentum,” Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics, said in a note to clients.

O.J. Simpson wins small victory in bid for freedom

WASHINGTON (AP) — The cost of borrowing for college is about to drop. The House on Wednesday was expected to give final congressional approval to bipartisan legislation linking student loan interest rates to the financial markets. The impact: lower rates for most students now but higher ones down the line if the economy improves as expected. “This is a win for students and taxpayers,” said Rep. John Kline, the Republican chairman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce. The top Democrat on that committee joined Kline on the House floor to urge

colleagues to back it. “It saves students and families money,” said Rep. George Miller, D-Calif. Undergraduates this fall would borrow at a 3.9 percent interest rate for subsidized and unsubsidized loans. Graduate students would have access to loans at 5.4 percent, and parents would borrow at 6.4 percent. The rates would be locked in for that year’s loan, but each year’s loan could be more expensive than the last. Rates would rise as the economy picks up and it becomes more expensive for the government to borrow money. But for now, interest payments for tuition, housing and books would be

as well as the White House preference to shift responsibility for interest rates to the financial markets. The resulting bipartisan bill passed the Senate 81-18. The earlier House-written student loan bill passed the GOP-led chamber 221-198, largely along party lines. Eight Republicans crossed party lines to vote against it; four Democrats voted in favor of it. With changes made in the Senate — most notably a cap on how interest rates could climb and locking in interest rates for the life of each year’s loan — Democrats were expected to join Republicans and back the bill. Interest rates would not top 8.25 percent for

undergraduates. Graduate students would not pay rates higher than 9.5 percent, and parents’ rates would top out at 10.5 percent. Using Congressional Budget Office estimates, rates would not reach those limits in the next 10 years. Even with those protections not all Democrats will back it, cautioned House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi. She said this “isn’t the bill we would have written, but it is a bill that can pass and will have Democrats voting for and against.” The White House has endorsed the deal, despite objections from consumer advocates that the proposal could cost future students.

With 3 ‘hops,’ NSA gets millions of phone records


CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — O.J. Simpson won a small victory Wednesday in his bid for freedom as Nevada granted him parole on some of his 2008 convictions for kidnapping and armed robbery involving the holdup of two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas hotel room. But the decision doesn’t mean Simpson will be leaving prison anytime soon. The former NFL star was convicted on multiple charges and still faces at least four more years behind bars on sentences that were ordered to run consecutively. The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners released its decision in favor of Simpson’s parole request Wednesday. Commissioners noted Simpson’s “positive institutional record” and his participation in programs addressing “behavior that led to incarceration.” “We expected it,” Patricia Palm, one of Simpson’s current lawyers, told The Associated Press shortly after the order was issued.

less expensive if the House passes the bill, as expected. The next step would be to send it to the White House, where President Barack Obama is expected to sign it into law. The chamber earlier this year passed legislation that is similar to what the Senate later passed. Both versions link interest rates to 10-year Treasury notes and remove Congress’ annual role in determining rates. “Campaign promises and political posturing should not play a role in the setting of student loan interest rates,” said Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C. “Borrowers deserve better.” Negotiators of the Senate compromise were mindful of the House-passed version,

President Barack Obama responds to a reporter’s question as he leaves a meeting with Senate Democrats on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday.

Obama seeks to soothe antsy Democrats WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama sought to calm jittery Democrats Wednesday as they prepared to head home to face voters, assuring them they’re “on the right side of history” despite problems with the launch of his massive health care overhaul and an immigration fight with Republicans. In back-to-back closed sessions with House and Senate Democrats, Obama delivered his broad message about economic prosperity and expanding the middle class. But in return he was confronted with questions from Democrats who are nervous about implementation of the health care law as they look ahead to town hall meetings during the August recess — and to midterm elections next year. The meetings at the Capitol offered a rare chance for the party’s rank and file to press the president about budget talks with Republicans, the next chairman of the Federal Reserve and local jobs projects, as well as to appeal to him for help in next year’s campaigns. In a lighter moment, House Democrats presented Obama with a birthday cake. He turns 52 on Sunday. The White House is seeking to keep up enthusiasm among

Democrats following a rough start to Obama’s second term. He has gained an agreement in the Senate to get at least some long-blocked nominees confirmed, and the Senate has passed its version of sweeping immigration legislation. But the immigration overhaul faces a deeply uncertain future in the Republican-led House, where many in the GOP oppose a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million immigrants in the country illegally. Obama’s landmark health care law continues to baffle many Americans, and the administration failed to assuage the public when it abruptly announced this month that it would delay a major provision requiring employers to provide coverage due to concerns about complexity. While major provisions of the overall bill kick in Jan. 1, uninsured people will be able to start shopping for health plans on Oct. 1, and some Democrats are wary about the system being ready. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter of New Hampshire said that in her state there is not enough competition because only one company had entered into the health care exchange.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s national security team acknowledged for the first time Wednesday that, when investigating one suspected terrorist, it can read and store the phone records of millions of Americans. Since it was revealed recently that the National Security Agency puts the phone records of every American into a database, the Obama administration has assured the nation that such records are rarely searched and, when they are, officials target only suspected international terrorists. But testimony before Congress on Wednesday showed how easy it is for Americans with no connection to terrorism to unwittingly have their calling patterns analyzed by the government. It hinges on what’s known as “hop” or “chain”

analysis. When the NSA identifies a suspect, it can look not just at his phone records, but also the records of everyone he calls, everyone who calls those people and everyone who calls those people. If the average person called 40 unique people, three-hop analysis would allow the government to mine the records of 2.5 million Americans when investigating one suspected terrorist. The NSA has said it conducted 300 searches of its telephone database last year. Left unsaid until Wednesday was that three-hop analysis off those searches could mean scrutinizing the phone records of tens or even hundreds of millions of people. “So what has been described as a discrete program, to go after people who would cause us harm, when you look at the reach of this program, it envelopes

a substantial number of Americans,” said Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate. John Inglis, the NSA’s deputy director, conceded the point but said NSA officials “try to be judicious” about conducting hop analysis. “And so while, theoretically, 40 times 40 times 40 gets you to a large number, that’s not typically what takes place,” he said. “We have to compare the theory to the practice.” Such reassurances have done little to quell the sharp criticism from both parties over the once-secret program. Last week saw a close vote in the House on a measure that aimed to kill the phone surveillance program. On Wednesday, the administration acknowledged some limitations to its sweeping surveillance powers are inevitable.

Many Midwesterners have a special appreciation for our trees. Majestic tree canopies bring character and beauty to our cities. For many, trees connect the past with the present and often carry memories and emotions. Unfortunately, when not properly placed or pruned, trees pose a significant threat to maintaining electric power to your home and beyond. Thunderstorms often offer reminders of what happens when trees and power lines intersect. Indiana Michigan Power strives to balance property owners’ love of their trees with our vital mission of Marc Labrie providing safe and reliable electric power. That means trimming or removing trees near our power lines. To preserve both tree canopies and reliable delivery of power, we seek to trim or remove trees before they pose a threat to power Thunderstorms often lines and poles. offer reminders of what This happens when trees and summer you may power lines intersect. well see I&M crews or those of our contractors in your neighborhood. The process starts even before the work crews arrive — unless there is an emergency, I&M informs affected property owners in advance of any work to be performed. We emphasize open communications with customers, sending a letter to every property owner along the appropriate lines — even if trees in their yards are not affected. Our planners make multiple attempts to meet with property owners to discuss the work. If we haven’t been able to make contact with a property owner, we follow up with cards placed on doorknobs of homes. Let’s be frank: Some residents are less than happy about how much we reduce a tree canopy. We make every effort to maintain the aesthetic appeal of the trees while adhering to the accepted safety standards of the American National Standards Institute as well as OSHA: • For single distribution lines that go through cities and down country roads, we maintain a minimum 10-foot clearance on each side of the power line. • Where three lines carry power, the standard is 15 feet. • Sometimes, we trim fast-growing trees such as the silver maple or the willow back farther, to keep them from growing into the power line for the next three to five years. Trees in the public right-of-way — usually the area between a street and sidewalk — are a different matter, because those are generally under control of the city or town. Residents of municipalities should check with their parks or other appropriate department with any questions about planting, removing or trimming trees in the right-of-way. If you are considering planting a tree, remember that some trees that were once in favor — including the Bradford pear and the ash — are now considered problem trees or worse. The National Arbor Day Foundation offers guidance on planting appropriate trees (see arborday. org and click on “Right Tree, Right Place.”) Residents within I&M’s service area with questions about trees can call 800-311-4634 (in Michigan, 800-3116424.) And before planting a tree, always call the 811 Call Before You Dig line.

Letters To The Editor • Daniels administration comes with an odor To the editor: There’s always been something rank, something smelly, about an administration run by Mitch Daniels. I’d guess that I’m not the only one to have sensed it. Now the same foul odor erupts in the administration of Purdue University. Thanks to a Board of Trustees most of whom were appointed by Indiana’s ex-governor, our man Mitch has secured the presidency of an institution of higher education. And, more recently, Daniels has been awarded a bonus of $58,000 for his first six months on the job. What a charade! The stink wafts all the way to the Ohio line. Greed, shameless maneuvering and cronyism have landed a person at the helm of Purdue University who has no more business being called “Mr. President” than Mickey Mouse. While families struggle with the cost of higher education and graduates struggle with student debt, Mitch Daniels has

Veteran returning to Omaha Beach to honor fallen buddies World War II D-Day veteran Gene Cogan never tires of telling everyone he meets to always remember the sacrifices made by the thousands of GIs killed and wounded defeating Nazi tyranny in Europe. He describes the undying gratitude of the French people who pay homage to American veterans like himself returning to France to visit the battle sites and memorials and join in remembrance celebrations. Cogan, 90, of Avilla, is making one last visit to Omaha Beach this month to place a bronze plaque at a memorial near Omaha Beach. The retired school administrator will travel alone to the small French village of Vierville-Sur-Mer in Normandy on Aug. 16 to place the plaque he had made on an old stone wall in memory of Sgt. Thomas Stevenson of New York City and Sgt. David Kehl of Moses Lake, Wash. Stevenson, Kehl and Cogan were members of the 3rd platoon, Company D, 115th regiment of the U.S. Army’s 29th Division. They were in the second wave that landed on Omaha Beach. Stevenson was killed on July 16, 1944 in St. Lo. Kehl was wounded, sent back to the U.S., honorably discharged and went on to have a very successful and rewarding life. He passed away in 1995. Cogan kept in close contact with him. Cogan was wounded twice by German gunfire and lay injured overnight beyond the beach until he was found the next day. He was sent back to the U.S., honorably discharged and went into school administration including principal at LaOtto and

Avilla schools. In June 2004 Cogan joined other World War II veterans on a trip to Normandy to celebrate the 60th anniversary of D-Day. While visiting ViervilleSur-Mer near Omaha Beach that became a supply depot for the 29th division during the invasion, Cogan met Carol Duvall, a village resident. Her father was 10 years old when he was befriended by GIs who liberated his village. INSIDE Duvall has been ever COMMENT grateful for that, and became a member of a French organization called Dennis Nartker Deep Respect. Its goal is to restore the monuments dotted around the French countryside dedicated to the U.S. troops. Duvall and Cogan met again in 2011 at a 29th division reunion in Virginia, and again in February this year when Cogan spoke at a remembrance program in Vierville-Sur-Mer. She was also instrumental in Cogan receiving the French Legion of Honor last year. On this trip to the French village Cogan is taking with him the 13-pound, 12-inch by 12-inch plaque. He will place it in the 300-foot stone wall that has become a memorial to the 29th division. Hite Funeral Home in Kendallville and Ley’s Monuments in Avilla purchased the plaque for him. A French film company is planning to make a documentary about D-Day for the 70th anniversary in 2014, and they may

interview Cogan. Duvall plans to videotape his visit for him. He will also spend time with his son who lives in Germany. “This will be my last trip,” he said, when asked if he plans to return for the 70th anniversary celebrations. Cogan will be 91 on Dec. 7. He’s enjoyed good health and a clear mind all his life, and still plays golf when his back isn’t bothering him. “I’ve been blessed, really blessed. I was so fortunate I didn’t die that day long ago,” he said. DENNIS NARTKER is a reporter for The News Sun. He can be reached at dennisn@kpcnews. net.

What Others Say • Truth riles up Venezuela Facing the Senate Foreign Relations Committee a few days ago, Samantha Power, President Barack Obama’s nominee for ambassador to the United Nations, surely didn’t expect to stir up the proverbial hornet’s nest. Power told the committee that as America’s U.N. envoy, she believed

in “contesting” what she described as a “crackdown on civil society being carried out in countries like Cuba, Iran, Russia, and Venezuela.” That was truthful, if not exactly an exercise in delicate diplomacy, and it enraged Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro, the hand-picked successor of the late Hugo Chavez, the flamboyantly anti-American socialist. …

He demanded an apology. Maduro, a former bus driver who was elected in April after Chavez succumbed to cancer, had called for improved relations with Washington. In June his foreign minister, Elias Jaua, met Secretary of State John Kerry, who described their meeting as the “beginning of a good, respectful relationship.” Jaua announced that his govern-

ment had sent a letter of protest to the American embassy in Caracas. … The United States needn’t overreact to Maduro’s bravado, but it needn’t apologize for Power’s accurate characterization of Venezuela. We suspect all this will fade away. Despite the ill will generated by Chavez, the United States

remains a critical trading partner for Venezuela. And the United States is a major importer of Venezuela’s major export, oil. Maduro’s tough talk probably is no more than that. In any event, such threats shouldn’t keep American diplomats from calling out oppressive regimes, however thin-skinned they may be. The Tampa (Fla.) Tribune

Get the facts about breast pumps BY TONYA ALLESHOUSE

These days, many new mothers return to the workplace with a briefcase in one hand — and a breast pump kit in the other. For those moms working outside the home who are breastfeeding their babies (and those who travel or for other reasons can’t be with their child throughout the day), using a breast pump to “express� (extract) their milk is a must. New mothers may have a host of questions about choosing a breast pump. What type of breast pump should you get? How do you decide ahead of time which pump will fit in best with your daily routines? Are pumps sold “used� safe?

Choosing the right pump All breast pumps consist of a few basic parts: a breast shield that fits over the nipple, a pump that creates a vacuum to express the milk, and a detachable container for collecting the milk. There are three basic kinds of pump: manual, battery-powered and electric. Mothers can opt for double pumps, which extract milk from both breasts at the same time, or single, which extract milk from one breast at a time. Mothers should talk to a lactation consultant, whose expertise is in breastfeeding, or other health care professional about the type of breast pump that will best fit their needs. Questions for new moms to keep in mind include: • How do I plan to use the pump? Will I pump in addition to breastfeeding? Or will I just pump and store the milk? • Where will I use the pump? At work? When I’m traveling? • Do I need a pump that’s easy to transport? If it’s electric, will I have access to an outlet?

• Does the breast shield fit me? If not, will the manufacturer let me exchange it? There’s also the decision of whether to buy or rent a breast pump. Many hospitals, lactation consultants and specialty medical supply stores rent breast pumps for use by multiple users. Many pumps are covered by insurance. (Call Cameron for information on insurance coverage of pumps.) These pumps are designed to decrease the risk of spreading contamination from one user to the next, and each renter needs to buy a new accessories kit that includes breastshields and tubing. Sometimes these pumps are labeled “hospital grade,â€? but that term is not recognized by FDA, and there is no consistent definition. Consumers need to know it doesn’t mean the pump is safe or hygienic. Precaution should be taken for “usedâ€? or second-hand pumps. Even if a used pump looks really clean, potentially infectious particles may survive in the breast pump and/or its accessories for a surprisingly long time and cause disease in the next baby.

Keeping It Clean The first place to look for information on keeping the pump clean is in the instructions for use. In general, though, the steps for cleaning include: • Rinse each piece that comes into contact with breast milk in cool water as soon as possible after pumping. • Wash each piece separately using liquid dishwashing soap and plenty of warm water. • Rinse each piece thoroughly with hot water

for 10-15 seconds. • Place the pieces on a clean paper towel or in a clean drying rack and allow them to air dry. If you are renting a multiple user device, ask the person providing the pump to make sure that all components, such as internal tubing, have been cleaned, disinfected, and sterilized according to the manufacturer’s specifications. There are many benefits to both child and mother from breastfeeding. Human milk is recommended as the best and exclusive nutrient source for feeding infants for the first six months, and should be continued with the addition of solid foods after six months, ideally until the child is one year of age. The benefits are both short- and long-term. In the short-term, babies can benefit from improved gastrointes-

tinal function and development, and fewer respiratory and urinary tract infections. In the long-term, children who have been breast fed may be less obese and, as adults, have less cardiovascular disease, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, allergies, and even some cancers. Moms and their families also benefit by the bonding experience and economically as well, since a reduction in acute and chronic diseases in the baby saves money. TONYA ALLESHOUSE is a

registered nurse and is the obstetrics coordinator at Cameron Memorial Community Hospital. This article was written in conjunction with Breast Feeding Awareness Week, which is observed next week.

accepts donation Salad mix linked to outbreak Rowling for revelation of identity Origin of illness remains unclear LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nearly 400 people across the country have been sickened by cyclospora, a lengthy intestinal illness usually contracted by eating contaminated food. But if you’re looking to find out exactly where it came from, you may be out of luck. Federal officials warned Wednesday that it was too early to say whether the outbreak of the rare parasite reported in at least 15 states was over. Health officials in Nebraska and Iowa say they’ve traced cases there to prepackaged salad. They haven’t revealed the company that packaged the salad or where it was sold, explaining only that most if not all of it wasn’t grown locally. The lack of information has fueled concern from consumers and food safety

advocates who argue that companies should be held accountable when outbreaks happen and customers need the information about where outbreaks came from to make smart food choices. “If you want the free market to work properly, then you need to let people have the information they need to make informed decisions,� said Bill Marler, a Seattle attorney who specializes in class-action food-safety lawsuits. Mark Hutson, who owns a Save-Mart grocery story in Lincoln, Neb., said he was unaware of customers who had raised concern about the product, which was unusual in situations involving foodborne illnesses. But Hutson said the lack of specific brand information threatened to hurt all providers, including the

good actors who did nothing wrong. “I think there was so little information as to what was causing the problem, that people just weren’t sure what to do,â€? he said. “Frankly, we would prefer to have the names out there.â€? Authorities said they still hadn’t determined whether the cases of cyclospora in the different states are connected. “It’s too early to say for sure whether it’s over, and thus too early to say there’s no risk of still getting sick,â€? said MarĂ­a-BelĂŠn Moran, spokeswoman for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Only Iowa and Nebraska officials had directly linked the outbreak in their states to a salad mix of iceberg and romaine lettuce, carrots and red cabbage. But grocery shoppers elsewhere acknowledged it was a factor as they shopped for

produce. “I can’t say I really want to go and buy particularly any lettuce right now,� said Laura Flanagan, 35, who was shopping at a Whole Foods in Dallas with her two young children. “I’m being pretty cautious about it.� The product was widely distributed in Iowa by wholesalers who could have supplied the bagged salad mix to all types of food establishments, including restaurants and grocery stores, said Iowa Food and Consumer Safety Bureau chief Steven Mandernach. Mandernach said at least 80 percent of the vegetables were grown and processed outside both Iowa and Nebraska. He said officials haven’t confirmed the origins of 20 percent and may never know because victims can’t always remember what they ate.

LONDON (AP) — Author J.K. Rowling accepted an apology and a charitable donation Wednesday from a law firm which revealed she wrote a crime novel under a Rowling pseudonym. The “Harry Potter� author was exposed by a newspaper on July 14 as the author of “The Cuckoo’s Calling,� a thriller ostensibly written by former soldier and first-time novelist Robert Galbraith. The book was published in April to good reviews but modest sales, and there was speculation that Rowling or her publisher had leaked the news to raise the book’s profile. But the law firm Russells, which has done work for

Rowling, acknowledged that one of its partners had let the information slip to his wife’s best friend, who tweeted it to a Sunday Times columnist. Rowling sued the lawyer and the friend. Her attorney, Jenny Afia, told Britain’s High Court on Wednesday that Rowling had been left “angry and distressed that her confidences had been betrayed.� “As a reflection of their regret for breach of the claimant’s confidence, including frustrating the claimant’s ability to continue to write anonymously under the name Robert Galbraith, the defendants are here today to apologize publicly to the claimant,� Afia said. Russells agreed to reimburse Rowling’s legal costs and to make a “substantial� donation to The Soldiers’ Charity, which helps former military personnel and their families.

Peaceful rites planned to mark shooting OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) — Sikh temples generally have four doors, one on each side of the building, as a symbolic invitation to travelers in every direction. But after a lone gunman walked into a Milwaukee-area Sikh temple last year and killed six people, some of the survivors suggested rethinking their openness. After consideration and contemplation, temple members kept the policy, deciding it was important to show the world the best way to stand against violence was to respond with love, peace and compassion. Still, officials at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin took precautions. A guard now works three days a week in the lobby, opening the door for visitors and keeping watch on the grounds and parking lot. Additional security cameras and lighting have been installed. Doors and windows are now bulletproof, and the locks have been upgraded. But even as temple members prepare to mark the one-year anniversary of the shootings on Monday, the Oak Creek temple remains open to everyone. All members of the community, Sikh and non-Sikh alike, are always welcome to join them for meditation and free meals, temple member Harpreet Singh said. “We will always

welcome people,” Singh said. Temple officials will be holding a series of memorial events in connection with shooting anniversary. The events include several solemn religious rites over the weekend, and culminate with a candlelight vigil Monday night. The events are being planned in the spirit of “chardhi kala,”, a Punjabi term that refers to a state of constant optimism. Sikhs believe that a positive attitude, even during times of hardship, reflects an acceptance of the will of God, temple trustee Harcharan Gill said. “In Sikhism, it’s tough to lose somebody but God probably needed him earlier and called him back,” he said of the deceased. “We accept whatever decision he makes.” Memorial events begin Friday at the U.S. Federal Courthouse in Milwaukee, where U.S. Attorney James Santelle will hold a special remembrance. Santelle’s office and the FBI investigated the shooter’s background for months

ago a white supremacist shot and killed six temple members, and the survivors plan to mark the one-year anniversary with solemn religious rites and a candlelight vigil.

before concluding that his motive for attacking the temple died along with him that day. Wade Michael Page walked into the temple a year ago Monday and opened fire. He killed six priests and worshippers and wounded five others, and then fatally shot himself after he was wounded in the parking lot by a police sniper. The 40-year-old Army veteran, who also shot and severely wounded an Oak Creek police officer, had ties to white supremacist groups. But the FBI found no evidence to suggest he had help or was acting in the name of any such groups. Several relatives of the wounded and dead say they forgave the gunman long ago. Raghuvinder Singh, whose 65-year-old father has been nearly comatose since Page shot him in the head, said he draws strength from Sikhism’s lessons of compassion and understanding. “I was talking about forgiveness from the first day this happened,” said Singh, a Sikh priest along with his father and brother.

“Sikhism is a peaceful religion. What Sikhism is teaching to us we are teaching to others. We practice it our whole lives.” As memorial events get underway at the courthouse, priests at the temple will begin an “akhand paath,” a ceremony in which they read the Sikh holy book aloud from cover to cover. The rite can take about 48 hours, and worshippers generally stop by to listen for short periods. The next day, the temple and the city of Oak Creek will stage a 3.7-mile run to honor the six victims. The run is free but donations will be collected for scholarships in the victims’ names. Any leftover funds will go toward the construction of a memorial, Gill said. “The run is part of the healing process,” Gill said. “It shows that we faced this situation and we are strong enough to get over this kind of tragedy, but we are not forgetting whatever happened.” On Monday, temple officials will join the Oak Creek community for a candlelight vigil at a nearby park.

Egypt’s military keeps Morsi under wraps CAIRO (AP) — Egypt is taking extreme measures to keep Mohammed Morsi hidden. It says dignitaries are helicoptered to the deposed president’s place of detention after nightfall, flying in patterns aimed at confusing the visitors. The military also has reportedly moved Morsi at least three times. “Maneuvers have been undertaken during the nighttime helicopter flight so as to disorient (the visitors) in regard to where the location is,” Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali, the military spokesman, told The Associated Press Wednesday, following a visit to Morsi Tuesday night by an African Union delegation. The Egyptian army has kept Morsi in hiding since ousting him in a July 3 coup. But the militarybacked interim leadership is under international criticism about Morsi’s continued detention, and by allowing two high-level visits in quick succession it apparently hoped to ease the pressure. “There are lies going around that he is badly treated, that he is under pressure, or that he is not taking his medication, and these were conveyed to the West,” Ali said. “This step was part of a transparency policy and to refute such allegations. We have nothing to hide.” He said Morsi’s whereabouts were being kept secret for his own


safety because “there are millions of people against him, and moving him is not considered appropriate at the moment.” It’s also possible, however, that if his place of detention were revealed, it would also attract throngs of Morsi supporters. He has already been moved at least three times between Defense Ministry facilities in armored vehicles under heavy guard, security officials told the AP, speaking anonymously because they were not authorized to discuss the details of Morsi’s case with the media. They said he is currently in a facility outside Cairo, but would not elaborate. The African Union delegation head, former Mali President Alpha Oumar Konare, offered no clues to Morsi’s location. He told reporters he had a “very frank meeting” with him but gave no details. Egypt’s state news agency said it lasted an hour. “We had a very good meeting with President Morsi,” Konare said. “Permit me not to talk about it for the time being because probably there will be other meetings.” The African Union has suspended Egypt’s membership because of the coup. On Monday Morsi had a two-hour visit from Catherine Ashton, the European Union’s top diplomat. She said the 61-year-old was well and keeping up with develop-

ments through TV and newspapers, but gave no other details. She said she saw the facility holding him, but didn’t know where it was. The military originally said it was holding Morsi for his own safety. But last week authorities announced he was being detained pending an investigation into allegations that he conspired with the militant Palestinian Hamas group to escape from prison during the 2011 uprising that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak. Morsi’s supporters have called his detention illegal. “A second visit after Baroness Ashton to President Morsi from the African Union. When will his family, which is more

deserving, visit him?” tweeted Essam el-Erian, a leading member of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood. Morsi is married with five children. Ali, the military spokesman, said there are unlikely to be more visits by foreign dignitaries, now that two delegations have found him to be in good health. German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle arrived Wednesday, and his request for a meeting was refused. A delegation of U.S. senators arriving shortly has not asked for one. A two-member delegation from Egyptian human rights groups visited Morsi this weekend, but he refused to meet them, according to local media.

NEW YORK (AP) — Mayoral hopeful Christine Quinn suddenly finds herself in demand on national political television talk shows, and they all want to ask her the same question: Should Anthony Weiner drop out of the race? Quinn, the pugnacious City Council speaker who has now vaulted ahead of the former congressman in the wake of his latest sexting scandal, answers questions about her embattled rival the same way: She touts her own track record while carefully disparaging his “pattern of reckless behavior.” But, unlike other Democratic rivals, Quinn has always stopped short of calling for Weiner to bow out. Truth is, she may not want him to go anywhere. Weiner’s recent travails have ended up giving Quinn much more valuable media exposure, allowing her to portray herself as the “adult” in the race and contrast her leadership to her married rival’s sordid behavior. Staying in the race could make Weiner the perfect foil, observers say. “The debacle that we’ve seen over the last week and a half now, is going to — could potentially — help Quinn if she’s able to embrace it,” New York University political communications professor Jeanne Zaino said Wednesday. Quinn’s campaign has taken pains to contrast her legislative scorecard while ruling the City Council for seven years to Weiner’s thin track record in Congress, where in 12 years he passed only one bill. And political experts love Quinn’s chances against Weiner if they are the two candidates to make it into a runoff, which could happen if no one achieves 40 percent of the vote in the Sept. 10 primary. “That’s the matchup she wants,” said Doug Muzzio, political science professor at Baruch College. “Her strengths look the best against him, especially since he has again revealed himself to be a self-destructive candidate.” The potential benefits for Quinn if Weiner drops out are more difficult to discern since there’s little overlap in their pools of voter support. A Quinnipiac College poll released this week shows Quinn’s support rising only from 27 percent to 30 percent of likely Democratic voters if Weiner drops out. That poll, which surveyed 446 likely voters, had Quinn followed by Public Advocate Bill de

Blasio at 21 percent, ex-city comptroller Bill Thompson at 20 percent and Weiner at 16 percent. Quinn, who’s looking to become the city’s first female and openly gay mayor, has continued a brisk campaign schedule in the wake of the latest Weiner revelations. She’s trotted out the support of women’s groups and unveiled her first TV ad just a week before the scandal broke. The final line of the 30-second ad is a clear shot at Weiner, who talks incessantly about the middle class. “I’m Christine Quinn,” she says. “While others talk about fighting for the middle class, I’ve been doing it.” Quinn’s resurgence has come as Weiner’s campaign has been besieged by questions from the media and voters about exchanging sexually explicit messages with women online even after that behavior forced him from Congress. The latest negative headlines came Wednesday, when Weiner’s chief spokeswoman was forced to apologize for an expletivelaced tirade aimed at a former intern who wrote an unflattering first-person article about her experience working on Weiner’s campaign. In a stark contrast to Quinn, de Blasio and Thompson have forcefully called for the scandalscarred candidate to bow out. Neither candidate had climbed higher than third in any poll before Weiner was revealed to have continued sending illicit messages even after he resigned from Congress in 2011. Political analysts say de Blaiso was most hurt by Weiner’s earlier success, since the two men cut a similar political persona: progressive, feisty, with their base of support found in the boroughs outside Manhattan. De Blasio’s second-place showing in this week’s Quinnipiac poll is by far his strongest in the race so far. Thompson, the race’s only black candidate, also would appear to benefit from Weiner’s departure. Thompson’s team has spoken openly of its hope to win decisively among black voters, yet Weiner has remained the most popular candidate among them. Weiner pulled in 24 percent of black voters in the Quinnipiac poll, and Thompson would seem poised to grab more of them than de Blasio or Quinn. Weiner has vowed to stay in the race to succeed independent Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

FORT WAYNE (AP) — Gov. Mike Pence said Wednesday he is standing by Indiana’s system of assigning “A-F” grades to schools based on their performance despite reports that the state’s former schools chief worked to change the grading formula to ensure a top GOP donor’s school received an “A.” Pence said Wednesday that the system is “an essential part” of accountability measures designed to improve education in Indiana. But he said the public must have confidence that the system is “fair and impartial.” “I think the A-to-F system is extremely important,” Pence said after participating in a mile-long walk to promote health with his wife, Karen. “Parents have a right to know how their schools are performing overall. But that system needs to really reflect the performance of those schools in an accurate and

fair and impartial way.” Emails obtained by The Associated Press show Bennett and his staff scrambled last fall to change the grading formula so Christel House Academy, a charter school founded by Christel DeHaan, received an “A.” DeHaan has donated $2.8 million to Republicans since 1998, including $130,000 to Bennett. Bennett had touted the school as a top performer for months as he built support for his education agenda among lawmakers and business groups. But low 10th grade algebra scores pulled the school’s initial mark down to a “C.” “This will be a HUGE problem for us,” Bennett wrote in a Sept. 12 email to his chief of staff. “They need to understand that anything less than an A for Christel House compromises all of our accountability work.” The emails show efforts to raise the grade, including

changing color presentations on a chart so a high “B” looked like an “A,” and included questions about whether the state could legally change just Christel House’s score. It’s not clear how the formula was changed, but within a week, Christel House had gone from a 2.9 to a 3.75. Bennett, who now is reworking Florida’s grading system as that state’s education commissioner, denies that Christel House Academy received special treatment and says other schools also benefited. He said discovering that the charter would receive a low grade raised broader concerns with grades for other “combined” schools — those that included multiple grade levels — across the state. DeHaan has told The Associated Press no one from the school was involved in any discussions about its grade.

Courier Corp. announces expansion, job growth BY DENNIS NARTKER


Indiana Governor Mike Pence, center, presents a proclamation to Campbell & Fetter Bank president and CEO Larry Doyle during a celebration of the bank’s 150 years in business Wednesday in

Kendallville. Also joining were, in back from left, Kendallville Mayor Suzanne Handshoe, District 82 state Rep. Dave Ober, R-Albion, and District 13 state Sen. Sue Glick, R-LaGrange.

Handshoe said the proclamation will hang on a wall inside the City Hall council chambers. District 82 state Rep. David Ober, R-Albion, and District 13 state Sen. Sue Glick, R-LaGrange, attended the ceremony. Ober congratulated Kendallville and Campbell & Fetter Bank for

the 150th milestones. Pence then moved to the Courier Digital Solutions plant in the East Industrial Park, where he briefly examined a recently installed Hewlett Packard T410 digital color inkjet web press before hosting an industrial leadership roundtable at the plant with a group of local plant

managers, city, county and state elected officials and city and county economic development corporation representatives. The governor praised Courier Corp. for its investment in Kendallville, saying, “It’s a successful example of city and county governments working together with private industry.”

U.S.: Mideast peace deal within 9 months is target, not deadline JERUSALEM (AP) — Reaching an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal within nine months is a target, not a deadline, a U.S. diplomat in Jerusalem said Wednesday, two days after the sides resumed negotiations and ended a five-year freeze. During the talks, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is expected to visit the region “on a regular basis” to check on progress, said Michael Ratney, the U.S. consul general in Jerusalem. John Allen, a retired U.S. general, will work closely with the negotiators on security arrangements, Ratney said. Israelis and Palestinians are trying to reach agreement on the terms of a Palestinian state alongside Israel. In two previous attempts, in 2000-2001 and in 2007-2008, the two sides made progress on drawing a border between Israel and a state of Palestine, but negotiations broke off — each time under disputed circumstances — before they could close a deal. The Palestinians want a state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem, lands Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast war, but have said they are ready to swap a small part of the occupied

lands for Israeli territory. This would enable Israel to annex some of the dozens of settlements it has built in the West Bank and east Jerusalem since 1967. Some 560,000 Israelis live there. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas initially insisted he would not return to talks unless Israel either halted settlement building or recognized its pre-1967 war line as the starting point for border talks. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected both demands and said the Palestinians should raise the issue of settlements in negotiations. In the end, the Palestinians resumed negotiations without Israel meeting either of those demands. Abbas has said he has received assurances from Kerry that the U.S. views the 1967 line as the basis for border talks. The U.S. sided with the Israeli view that the fate of settlements should be dealt with during the negotiations. “We said it many, many times (that) we don’t accept the legitimacy of continued settlement activity,” Ratney told Palestinian reporters Wednesday. “This is a core issue that the parties need to sit down and discuss.” Abbas has said that

during Kerry’s attempt to restart negotiations, Israel proposed at one point to freeze construction in settlements that fall outside its so-called settlement blocs, or clusters of settlements, all but one of them relatively close to the 1967 line. Israel intends to keep the blocs in a final peace deal. Abbas has said he rejected the idea because the Palestinians — in line with most of the international community — view all settlements as equally illegal, regardless of location. An Israeli government official confirmed Wednesday that Israel raised the possibility of a partial freeze at one point, but that the Palestinians rejected the idea. He spoke on condition of anonymity in line with briefing regulations. Despite the wide gaps between the two sides, Ratney said the U.S. believes the sides can “achieve something in nine months” if they work hard. “We never set a deadline, but we have clearly set a target,” he said. In two decades of intermittent negotiations, such timelines have been ineffective in prodding negotiators.

KENDALLVILLE — Courier Corp. announced Wednesday plans to double its digital printing capacity at its Courier Digital Solutions plant in Kendallville through the addition of a second T410 color inkjet web press. The expansion represents about $13 million in investments and will create approximately 40 jobs, the company said. Courier Corp., based in North Chelmsford, Mass., acquired its first T410 press earlier this year as the heart of a new digital printing operation designed to complement its Kendallville offset plant on Marion Drive as well as a pre-existing digital facility in North Chelmsford. With its 42-inch web width, the T410 offers exceptional flexibility in meeting a high volume of diverse printing needs across a full range of run lengths, a Courier news release said. Since that first installation, demand for Courier’s

digital solutions has continued to grow among leading educational and trade publications, the company said. “We knew from the outset that bringing digital capacity to Kendallville made sense for our customers and ourselves,” said James F. Conway III, Courier chairman and CEO. “But between our rising volume of customized textbook production and growing interest in four-color digital from trade publishers, it quickly became apparent that we needed even more capacity.” The new press from Hewlett Packard will be set up next to the existing T410 and is scheduled to begin operating later this year, said Christine Bitner, Courier Kendallville Inc. plant manager and vice-president. Conway said bringing the new press up to speed quickly is a tribute to the skills and dedication of the company’s 600-strong Kendallville workforce and excellent cooperation from

the city of Kendallville. “I am delighted to be able to offer our customers the best digital and offset service in the industry from this superb location,” he said. Bitner said she is proud of Courier’s Kendallville employees for their efforts in maintaining successful operations in the Marion Drive plant while also making the Courier Digital Solutions operations start-up a success. Mayor Suzanne Handshoe said Wednesday Courier will seek tax abatement for the new press. “We are pleased they have again chosen Kendallville as the location to make a significant investment. “We appreciate their vision and growth in our community,” she said. Courier Corp. is America’s third-largest book manufacturer and a leader in content management and customization in new and traditional media. It also publishes books under three brands offering thousands of titles.

EAGLES: It is likely nesting pair will return to park FROM PAGE A1

reproduce eagles here, therefore increasing the population. The two eaglets are the first nesting pair in Steuben County in more than 100 years. Many bald eagles fly through the area during the winter. More have flown here each year. “We counted five at Christmastime,” said

Wooley. “Two of them stayed, and now we have these two birds.” It is possible that the birds will stay in the area, information from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources says. And it is likely the nesting pair will return to Pokagon next spring to nest once more. Visitors to the park have

been respectful toward the two young eagles. Those staying at Pokagon Group Camp, near where the nest is located, have even had experiences with the birds coming up to them, Wooley said. The park hopes guests continue to respect the birds so they are able to adjust to living in proximity to humans at Pokagon and busy Lake James.

Trading fatigues for football INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Josh McNary spent years training to call the shots in artillery fields at Fort Hood. Turns out the 25-year-old Army fire direction officer really wanted a different mission. On Tuesday, McNary took advantage of his early release from the Army after more than two years of active-duty service and officially traded his fatigues for pads and an Indianapolis Colts helmet. He hopes to catch on as a linebacker. “Basically, I just said, ‘Hi, I’m Josh McNary’ and I told them a little bit about of what I did,” McNary said Wednesday morning, describing the introduction to his new band of brothers. “Coach (Chuck Pagano) pretty much

hit on the few topics about the translatable qualities that the Army has that also can be applied on the football field — those character traits, the accountability of yourself and holding your brothers in arms accountable. But he kept it in perspective, he acknowledged the fact that this is a game, and that’s not really a game, in the Army. It was a heck of a speech.” For McNary and his family, this is a heck of a change. McNary’s father, George, was a captain in the Marines; both of McNary’s grandfathers fought in wars, and McNary’s uncle is a first major in the Army. So when the high school kid enrolled at West Point, his destiny seemed clear: Army officer. But along the way, McNary

developed into a top-flight football player. Scouts remember him as the former walk-on who left Army as the school’s career leader in sacks (28.0) and tackles for loss (49.0), the kid who won the Pat Tillman Award at the 2011 East-West Shrine Game and the guy who might have been drafted later that year if he wasn’t staring at 24 months — or more — away from the game. Back then, the book on McNary said he was undersized at 6-feet, 230 pounds, though he compensated with quick feet, good balance and reliable tackling. Two years of Army work turned him into a ball of muscle, whose passion for the game never changed. SEE COLTS, PAGE B2

CLEVELAND (AP) — Carlos Santana’s leadoff home run in the 10th inning gave the Cleveland Indians their seventh straight win, a 6-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night. Santana hit a 3-2 pitch from Dylan Axelrod (3-7) into the right field seats for Cleveland’s ninth walkoff win of the season. The crowd of 22,258 roared when the ball reached the seats and Santana threw his helmet in the air as he reached home plate and was mobbed his teammates. Chris Perez (4-1) hit Adam Dunn with a pitch with two outs in the 10th, but struck out Paul Konerko to end the inning as Chicago lost its sixth straight game.



Cincinnati Reds starter Homer Bailey works against the San Diego Padres on Wednesday.

The Reds took a 4-1 victory. Bailey allowed just one run and struck out seven.

Back to winning Bailey takes shutout into 9th in 4-1 Reds win SAN DIEGO (AP) — Homer Bailey gave the struggling Cincinnati Reds exactly what they needed. The right-hander came within two outs of a five-hit shutout to end his four-start losing streak and the Reds beat the San Diego Padres 4-1 Wednesday to snap a five-game skid. Brandon Phillips homered and Joey Votto hit a two-run double for the Reds, who avoided a three-game sweep and ended San Diego’s four-game winning streak. “Before the game I said the law of averages were on our side to win on the road, and for Homer to win,” manager Dusty Baker said. “It’s been a long time since he’s won. There were some big hits that we got today that we have been missing the past few days.

“It’s great to have a great flight home, have a great day off and sort of take it easy and lick our wounds, so to speak, and get back at it again,” Baker said. The performance by Bailey was just what the Reds needed to end a 10-game West Coast trip on a positive note. Not only had the Reds lost five straight after winning the first four games of the trip, but Bailey hadn’t won since throwing the second no-hitter of his career July 2 at home against San Francisco. Three of his four losses since then had come on the road. Bailey had allowed just five singles going into the ninth, when Everth Cabrera reached on a fielding error by first baseman Votto leading off the inning. He got Chris Denorfia to fly out

before Chase Headley doubled in Cabrera. Baker pulled Bailey, and Aroldis Chapman got the final two outs for his 25th save in 29 chances. “It’s good to get a win,” Bailey said. “We didn’t want to come in here and get swept. We’ve been playing and pitching really well; just trying to go out there and end this trip on a good note.” Bailey said he felt fine going into the ninth. “I cooled down a little bit when they changed pitchers. I definitely wished I could have finished that one,” Bailey said. “But you got a pretty good closer coming in behind me.” Bailey (6-10) allowed six hits and one unearned run, struck out seven and walked none in the victory.

DETROIT (AP) — Stephen Strasburg was keeping the Detroit Tigers in check through five innings, holding their potent lineup to only one run. The young right-hander made one mistake — leaving a fastball out over the plate — and Alex Avila took advantage. Avila hit a tiebreaking grand slam in the sixth, lifting Detroit to a 5-1 win over the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night. “I pitched well, minus one pitch,” Strasburg said. “That was supposed to be a fastball away, but it came back over the plate and he put a good swing on it.” Strasburg (5-9) allowed five runs, six hits and three walks while striking out seven over seven innings. “I thought he pitched great,” Nationals manager Davey Johnson said. “He just made one mistake and Avila crushed it. Until that inning, the way he was cruising, I thought we might get nine innings out of him.” Anibal Sanchez (9-7) gave up one run, five hits and two walks over seven innings for Detroit. Jose Veras, a day after being acquired from Houston, was perfect in the eighth in his Tigers debut. Joaquin Benoit, who will keep his job as the team’s closer, gave up one hit in the ninth inning. The AL Central-leading Tigers have won four straight and eight of nine to move 15 games over .500 for the first time this season. Sanchez is 9-1 in his career against the Nationals, and with a 1.99 ERA he leads all pitchers who have made at least 15 starts against them. “When you’re facing a guy like Strasburg, you may get one pitch all game to do something,” Avila said. Jhonny Peralta also homered deep into the right-field seats to give the Tigers a 5-1 lead.

Swanson on top again in AMS sprint cars BY JAMES FISHER

ANGOLA — Defending Hoosier Outlaw Sprint Series champion Joe Swanson led every lap of Saturday’s feature event for the group at Angola Motorsports Speedway, while Mike Kugler drove to victory in The Gunslinger for super late models. Kale Asztalos (late model sportsman) and Darwin Wolfe (modifieds) picked up their first feature wins of the season, with other victories going to Nick Spears (mini stocks) and J.J. Schafer (street stocks). Swanson has been dominant in the last three events for the HOSS series at AMS; he also won last September’s race by the group and finished second during the June 2012 event. Swanson started on the pole and beat Tyler Rohrig into the first turn. Only former Hoss champ Tim Cox would challenge, pulling close on lap 22 of the 30-lap feature. But Swanson was able to pull ahead

Tyler Roarig fourth and Kyle Henry fifth. Heat race winners were Henry and Hank Lower.

The HOSS group makes its next appearance at Angola Speedway on Sept. 1. It will be the final points race of the season for the group. The Gunslinger race for the super late models pitted the Angola drivers against those from the dirt racing ranks. Tennessee driver Dustin Stutts did lead a portion of the event, but Kugler, the 2011 AMS champ in the class, took the victory for the speedway’s regulars. Robby Henderson and Michigan dirt driver Linc Stevens made up the front row for The Gunslinger. Henderson led until third-starting Stutts slipped underneath on lap 4, taking John Gearhart and Jack Landis with him. The trio would go three-abreast into turn 1 on the ninth circuit, with Landis and Stutts both spinning. The turn of events sent Stutts to the pits and Landis to the tail for the restart.

Gearhart, Kugler and Brent Jack would take their turns at the front of the field until Kugler took over for good on a lap 21 restart. The top five at the finish were Kugler, Jack, Landis, Tim Ryan and Gearhart. Mark Dowdy was the top finishing dirt driver, placing sixth. Kugler was doing double duty, also competing in the late model sportman class, where he leads the standings.

In the modified feature, points leader Zach Henderson led until Wolfe pulled ahead on an early restart. Henderson held on to finish second, ahead of 2011 champion Brad Springer, Erik Schaeffer and six-time winner Jason Timmerman. In the mini stocks, Spears set a track record for the class and held off division points leader Kyle Moonen to record the win. Terry

Lake, Jimmy Musser and Allen Tink completed the top five. The street stock win went to Schafer, over Chad Minnix, Tanner Tallarico, Brandon Pulver and points leader Cam Schoeck. Six divisions will be in competition this Saturday, including the Everage Super Late Models, Shepherd’s Chevy, Buick, GMC Late Model Sportsman, Superior Auto Modifieds, Randy’s Trannys Plus Street Stocks, Smith Enterprises Mini Stocks and GLS Super Mini Cup Series. Kale Asztalos won the late model sportsman feature at AMS on Saturday. JAMES FISHER

Colts coaches were so impressed, they signed him as a free agent in April. “I think over the years that he was with the military, he learned a lot of command,” defensive coordinator Greg Manusky said. “He was doing a lot of things. I think he’s a good football player and we’ll see what he can do when he gets out there.” What he brings is a wealth of real-world experience rarely seen on NFL rosters. He worked as a graduate assistant at West Point following his playing career and mastered the art of building bonds with colleagues and teammates in stops at the U.S. Military Academy Prep School, the U.S. Military Academy and stints at Fort Sill in Oklahoma and Fort Hood

in Texas. He fits in with an unusual corps of Colts rookie linebackers that includes German-born Bjoern Werner, Indy’s first-round draft pick, and Daniel Adongo, an African rugby player who has never played a down of American football. The youngsters will be mentored five-time Pro Bowler Robert Mathis. And though his family’s professional choice has usually been military service, McNary acknowledges he has plenty of support on the home front. “They recognize this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” he said. “All through college my dad’s concentration was on academics and military sort of things, and he likes the fact that I’m an officer. He encouraged me to follow that, but they support me in this.” The Army is helping, too.

As of 2008, the Defense Department allows some service members who were required to serve five years of active duty to apply for an early release after two years if they were participating in pro sports. If granted, those getting the release were required to serve in the military reserves and pay back part of their education cost. McNary said he must spend six more years in the reserves though the job will not impact what he does with the Colts — if he makes the team. When the all-clear came finally Monday, McNary wasted no time getting back to work. He arrived Monday night, passed his physical Tuesday morning and was hitting pads and players Tuesday afternoon. All McNary has to do now is fulfill his mission by making the team.

Just when it was looking like the 2013 Sprint Cup season was one that Ryan Newman just as soon forget, it turned into one he’ll always remember for a magical weekend in July. When Newman left New Hampshire Motor Speedway after the July 14 race leading up to the midsummer break, he was having to deal with the news that he was losing his ride in the No. 39 Chevrolet at Stewart-Haas Racing and the fact that he’d been in a crash that left him 39th at New Hampshire and seemingly out of the running for a Chase berth. But when the South Bend, Ind., native arrived at his home-state track, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, for the Samuel Deeds 400 at the Brickyard, his fortunes took a 180-degree turnaround. He won the pole, the 50th of his career, with a track record lap of 187.531 miles per hour. Then in the race, he outdueled four-time Indy winner Jimmie Johnson to get his first win at Indianapolis. It was the 17th of his career, and it put him right back in the running for a Chase berth. He’s now 16th in the standings, 25 points away from 10th place, but his Brickyard win puts him squarely in the running for a wild card Chase berth. As the reality of Newman’s accomplishment began to sink in, it was the past — his and Indy’s — that seemed to be foremost on his mind. “I don’t show a lot of emotion,” he said. “I had the same emotion, the same thankfulness I did when I won the Daytona 500. I feel everybody that has been a part of my racing career, from people that bought my racing uniform, bought me a rightrear tire, gave us a credit card to get to some race track at some point in my career ... those are the people that helped me get to where I am today.” Newman mentioned his parents, his sister, his crew chief, Matt Borland, former Penske team president Don

Kyle Busch added a few new notches to his Nationwide Series belt in the secondever Nationwide race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He started from the pole, led a racehigh 92 of 100 laps and had to overcome late-race challenges from Joey Logano and Brian Scott to score his series-recordextending 59th career victory. It was his eighth win of the season and his fifth this year from the pole, breaking a tie with series icon Sam Ard, who won four from the pole in 1983. Busch also set a new record for career Nationwide poles, with 31. “Whatever records are left, let me know and I’m going to try to put my name on them,” Busch said.

'DOH(DUQKDUGW-UÀQLVKHGVL[WKDWWKH%ULFN\DUG Dale Earnhardt Jr. overcame a loose wheel that dropped him to 43rd in the running order just after the drop of the green flag to finish sixth in the Brickyard 400. But it was the death of his uncle, Randy Earnhardt, earlier in the day that weighed the most on his mind as he raced at Indy. Randy Earnhardt, brother of the late Dale Earnhardt, died after a battle with cancer. “It was really tough,” Earnhardt said of racing so soon after his uncle’s death. “He helped me through a lot of challenges when I was trying to become a race car driver. He was there when I started driving Late Models. I went through the whole process of racing with Tony (Eury Sr.) and all of them through the Bud car. “Randy was always there. I hurt for Mamaw [Martha Earnhardt] and Randy’s brother and sisters, Danny, Kaye and Cathy.” Earnhardt said his uncle worked hard to ensure that his late brother’s treasured racing items weren’t lost after the demise of the race shops at Dale Earnhardt Inc. “After I left [DEI] and everything kind of went away, he stuck around,” Earnhardt said. “He was loyal to Dad, and really looked after everything that was there and that was my father’s and what would have been important to him as far as material things. “Randy really looked after that.” Earnhardt said losing someone so close to him is difficult. “It is part of life, and it is hard to get used to,” he said. “I am just glad his suffering is over with. He was having a real hard time. I loved him dearly, and will miss him a lot.”

All 43 starting drivers finish Brickyard 400 Starting and parking is a common occurrence in NASCAR racing, with struggling teams often running just a few laps and collecting significant pay for doing so. But in Sunday’s race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, all 43 drivers ran the entire race, something that hasn’t happened since 2008, according to several statistics released after the race. The reason for so many finishers at Indy could lie in the payoff. Timmy Hill was the lowest on the pay scale on Sunday, but he still earned $121,170 for his 42ndplace effort. Compare that with the previous Cup race, at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, where Mike Bliss was the low-wage-earner with $53,175 for a 43rd-place finish that had all the markings of a start-and-park effort. He ran 75 laps before dropping out, citing rear gear issues.

Ford to pull out of NHRA after 2014


Insiders in the NASCAR garage are trying to figure out just what to make of Ford Motor Co.’s surprise announcement last week that it would be getting out of professional drag racing at the end of the 2014 season. The old adage has been that for manufacturers like Ford, participation in NASCAR sells cars, while participation in NHRA drag racing sells high-performance parts. In Ford’s announcement, it was emphasized that the manufacturer still would support sportsman-level drag racing.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Twins trade catcher Drew Butera to Dodgers MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have traded catcher Drew Butera to the Los Angeles Dodgers for either a player to be named or cash. The deal was done right before the non-waiver trade deadline on Wednesday afternoon. Butera was the backup to Joe Mauer for most of the last three seasons, but he has spent all but the last week with Triple-A Rochester this year. When Mauer was out on paternity leave, Butera appeared in two games. Butera, who will turn 30 on Aug. 9, missed time because of a broken left hand earlier in the season and was hitting .229 in 83 at-bats for the Red Wings. Defense has always been his strength. In 490 career at-bats for the Twins, Butera has a .182 batting average with five home runs.

Orioles acquire Norris BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles have acquired right-hander Bud Norris from the Houston Astros to help bolster a rotation that will be without injured Jason Hammel for what could be an extended period. The Orioles are sending outfielder L.J. Hoes and left-handed prospect Josh Hader to the Astros in a deal agreed to moments before Wednesday’s non-waiver trade deadline. Hammel is being placed on the 15-day disabled list with a flexor mass strain in his right forearm. He is 7-8 with a 5.20 ERA in 21 starts this season. The 28-year-old Norris was 6-9 with a 3.93 ERA for the Astros. He was making a club-high $3 million this year. In his fifth big league season, Norris is under team control through 2015. He is 34-46 with a 4.33 ERA. Hoes is one of the Orioles top prospects. A third round pick in 2008, Hoes was hitting .304 for Triple-A Norfolk.

Pistons’ deal done with Bucks for Brandon Jennings DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Pistons officially announced the next step in their win-now plan Wednesday, acquiring point guard Brandon Jennings from the Milwaukee Bucks for guard Brandon Knight and two other players. The Pistons also gave up two seldomused players, forward Khris Middleton and center Viacheslav Kravtsov. Detroit has signed free agents Josh Smith, Chauncey Billups and Luigi Datome this offseason after drafting shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope with the No. 8 overall pick, but it didn’t have a standout point guard until agreeing to a deal with Milwaukee. The Pistons seem to have improved their chances of ending their four-year postseason drought with a series of moves this summer. The 23-year-old Jennings averaged 17.5 points and a career-high 6.5 assists last season, ranking among the league’s top 20 in both categories, and 2.5 turnovers. The restricted free agent has agreed to a $24 million, three-year contract with the Pistons.

Ivanovic tops Cibulkova at Carlsbad CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) — Ana Ivanovic advanced to the second round of the Southern California Open on Wednesday, beating defending champion Dominika Cibulkova 4-6, 6-3, 6-2. The seventh-seeded Ivanovic, from Serbia, won nine of the final 11 games. She used a strong ground game to overpower Cibulkova, the Slovak player coming off a victory Sunday in the Bank of the West Classic at Stanford. Top-seeded Victoria Azarenka of Belarus beat Italy’s Francesca Schiavone 6-2, 6-3 in the second round. Third-seeded Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic and fourth-seeded Roberta Vinci of Italy had few problems in winning their opening matches after receiving first-round byes.

DNR offers fair activities INDIANAPOLIS — Two Indiana Department of Natural Resources favorites, Snakes Alive and the Kids Fishin’ Pond, kick off day No. 1 of the Indiana State Fair and will be offered daily, Friday through Aug. 18. Another annual favorite, the Taste of the Wild cookout, will take place on Saturday at 11 a.m. All three events will be adjacent to the air-conditioned Natural Resources Building, the hub of DNR State Fair activities. Check for the entire DNR schedule. During Snakes Alive, interpretive naturalists from across Indiana will talk about snakes Hoosiers might find in their backyards. Start time is 10 a.m. daily at the 150-seat DNR amphitheater.

The 312,000-gallon Fishin’ Pond next to the amphitheater is packed with fish to be caught and released. Youth fishing is available most days from 9 a.m. to noon and from 4 to 7 p.m. On Friday, Aug. 2, only the evening session is offered. Parents/guardians should check the daily schedule online or in the State Fair program. New this year, kids will be able to fish with family members on Family Fishing Fridays at the Fishin’ Pond. Also featured each afternoon is a program with at least one live bird of prey. These programs take place at 4:30 p.m. every day except Saturday, when start time is 3:30 p.m. At this Saturday’s Taste of the Wild, visitors can

try samples of steelhead trout, venison, barbecued beaver, turtle soup, Asian carp and more, prepared and provided by DNR staff and volunteer groups. Taste of the Wild preparers and providers include the White River Bow Hunters Association, Indiana Deer Hunters Association, Indiana Wildlife Federation, Indianapolis Flycasters, Farmland Conservation Club, Indiana Wild Turkey Federation and Northwest Indiana Steelheaders, as well as Jim and Nancy Mahoney, and Ken and Robin Groves. Taste of the Wild, the snake show and Fishin’ Pond, like all DNR activities at the fair, are free after paying gate admission.

Get paid to go bass fishing INDIANAPOLIS — Catching black bass makes for a great recreation, but now it can line your wallet, provided you fish — and catch — in the right spots. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is tagging 500 legal-sized black bass on three rivers in central and northern Indiana as part of a new research project. Black bass includes largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass. Anglers who catch a tagged bass can earn gift cards to Bass Pro Shop for $5, $10 or $25 by reporting their catches and returning tags to DNR researchers. DNR biologists are tagging black bass in the West Fork White River (Madison, Hamilton and Marion counties), Eel River

(Wabash, Miami and Cass counties), and St. Joseph River (St. Joseph and Elkhart counties) during late summer and fall. Bass will be tagged with a jaw tag stamped with a DNR phone number and serial number. When an angler catches a fish, they will need to remove the tag and either release or harvest the fish. Tags must be returned to the DNR to receive a reward, but tagged bass do not have to be kept to receive a reward. To report tagged catches, anglers must call (812) 287-8300 and provide the tag number, whether the fish was kept or released, date of catch, total length of the fish and approximate location of the catch. “The research project will

help biologists learn more about angler catch rates and fish movement in these rivers,” said DNR fisheries research biologist Sandy Clark-Kolaks. “Information gained will help us better manage these species.” The project is a partnership of the DNR and various other conservation organizations, including the Indiana Wildlife Federation, Reel Women-Reel Men of Indianapolis, Indy Flycasters, St. Joseph River Valley Fly Fishers, Indiana Smallmouth Alliance and Manchester College, each of which is providing administrative and financial assistance. For more information, contact Clark-Kolaks at 812-287-8300 or sclark-ko

Deer hunting will be among the many issues facing new Indiana Department of Natural Resources Director Cameron

DNR chief’s plate full Even more unceremoniously than when he assumed the office, Rob Carter left the Indiana Department of Natural Resources director position in May. For some of us, his departure is the first bit of hope for the outdoor sports in years. Carter was only in charge for a few years, OUTDOORS but left WITH DON devastation in his wake. His adminisDon Mulligan tration is responsible for alienating every outdoor group in Indiana and reducing deer to nothing more than vermin whose only value rested on how much money they could make the state. Under Carter, outdoor sportsmen and women found themselves on the opposite side of the battlefield from the DNR time after time, instead of standing together with them to fight the anti-hunting and anti-conservation crazies. One of the great things about our democratic system, however, is that governors and their directors eventually leave, giving another administration a chance to implement their vision for the future and sometimes right the ship. When Carter left, Gov. Mike Pence appointed Cameron Clark to serve as the new director. Clark most recently served as the DNR’s chief legal counsel, a role he has held since 2011 under Carter’s directorship. Little has been said

publicly about Clark’s vision for the future of the DNR, or whether he even hunts, fishes or traps, but he is a new director, and that alone should give us all a reason to hope for the best. “My hope is to continue to increase the recreational opportunities available to Indiana citizens, particularly our children, while at the same time holding fast to our strong conservation ethic,” Clark said. Let’s all hope Clark is referring to previous administration’s conservation ethics, since so far, the Pence administration has none. In the few months sine Pence has been in office, Indiana has defied plans accepted by every other Great Lakes state to stop the invasion of Asian carp into the Great Lakes. They are also under fire for refusing to make BP comply with environmental rules as they pertain to dumping in Lake Michigan. Perhaps Clark is referring to the conservation ethics practiced by groups like the Indiana Wildlife Federation or the Indiana Bowhunters Association. If so, the future is bright for hunters and conservationists indeed. In case he is looking for some low-hanging fruit to pick and get off to a good start, here are a few items on most outdoorsmen and women’s wish list. Revisit the closure of the Port of Indiana to recreational fishermen, and this time advocate for the people you represent: sportmen and women. We lost access after the Sept. 11th bombing, despite the port being built into our mutually owned Great Lake and no history of incidents. It is easily the best, most predictable sport fishing area

in the Indiana waters of Lake Michigan, and can only be adequately fished by boat. Fix deer season. Listen to the majority and undo the endless gun seasons the Carter administration forced upon the protesting masses just to make a couple extra dollars. And while he is fixing deer seasons, Clark could update the fee schedule. Nonresident hunters pay less in Indiana than most other states to hunt deer. If we tripled the nonresident fee, it would be a win for everyone. Studies show increasing the nonresident tag fee does not translate into lower license revenue. Nonresidents grumble, but they pay it. If a few don’t come here to hunt because of the fee, others make up the difference with the higher tag price. This makes Indiana hunters happy since it means fewer nonresidents to compete with, and making us happy should be important since we not only hunt here, we vote here. This is a bigger deal every year as leasing becomes a permanent part of the sport, and outdoor writers around the country keep talking about Indiana as “the next big sleeper state for a record book buck.” Director Clark likely has a lot to focus on in the first several months of his administration, and not all of it has to do with hunting and fishing. When he gets around to us, let’s hope we are at least listened to this time around. DON MULLIGAN writes Outdoors with Don for this newspaper. He can be reached at outdoor

Pets on planes often suffer rough rides DEAR ABBY: I travel a lot in my work with animal protection. Often I’ll encounter dogs and cats in distress as soon as I reach the airport. Distracted by their own thoughts, their owners seldom realize they’re upsetting the pets they’re carrying through the terminal. Animal carriers are carelessly swung to and fro, banged against counters, chairs and onto the floor. Cat or dog shoulder bags are dangled at angles that make it impossible for the animal inside to balance. These poor pets can be confused, dizzy and suffer from motion sickness before the flight even takes off. Traveling is stressful enough for animals. So please, everyone — if you fly with an animal companion, keep it foremost in your thoughts. Use a sturdy, well-ventilated carrier,




preferably one with wheels, that’s designed for animals and to fit under your seat. And please, keep the carrier upright and steady. — ANIMAL LOVER IN WASHINGTON, D.C. DEAR ANIMAL LOVER: Thank you for the heads up. In case someone’s pet might have other DEAR issues while ABBY traveling, it’s always a good idea to talk about it Jeanne Phillips with a veterinarian before embarking. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

DEAR ABBY: A few months ago my mother joined Facebook and I readily

accepted her friend request. I’m a 30-something IT specialist, but Mom is new to the Internet. There are times I have gone online and seen posts in which my mother is arguing with my friends about their lifestyles. I have friends and business contacts from all over the world, and their backgrounds are highly varied as are their belief and value systems. I have told Mom in private and public discussions that she owes someone an apology, but she shrugs it off. Am I wrong for asking her to respect my friends, and would you suggest I “unfriend” my mother until she learns proper Internet etiquette? — DIGITAL FAMILY MAN DEAR FAMILY MAN: Because what your mother is doing could negatively affect your business, you should do EXACTLY that. And quickly!

New study casts doubt on fish oil supplements omega-3 fatty acids found in fish. The other group took “dummy” pills that contained olive oil. During the next five years, about 12 percent of people in each group died or suffered a heart attack, stroke or other heart-related problem. People who ASK took fish oil DOCTOR K. did not fare any better than those didn’t. Dr. Anthony whoOne study rarely settles Komaroff a controversial question. This new study was a very strong one, but it can be criticized. For example, there is evidence that olive oil also is heart-healthy. If the truth

is that both fish oil capsules and olive oil capsules can protect the heart, then perhaps the study would have been more convincing if fish oil were compared to a capsule with a substance not thought to be heart-healthy. Nevertheless, based on this study, I wouldn’t rely on fish oil pills to lower your risk of heart attack and stroke. However, taking fish oil capsules is not the same thing as eating fish. There is very strong evidence that people who regularly eat fish have lower rates of heart disease. Multiple well-done studies have shown that a diet including fish leads to lower rates of heart disease and stroke. So I advise my patients to keep eating fish, especially fatty fish that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Examples of fatty fish include salmon, sardines, mackerel, char and halibut.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I have risk factors for heart disease. I’ve been dutifully taking fish oil supplements for years to reduce my risk of a heart attack. Now I read that they don’t help. Should I stop taking them? DEAR READER: Fish oil, loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, has garnered a reputation as an easy way to protect the heart. But a recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that fish oil pills don’t reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke in people at increased risk. The new study focused on about 12,500 people who never had a heart attack or stroke. But they had high blood pressure, a family history of heart disease or other factors that increased their risk. Study participants were randomly divided into two groups. One group took a daily capsule containing


take an omega-3 supplement. At low to moderate doses (1,000 milligrams or less per day), this appears to be quite safe. Since fish oil has a mild blood-thinning effect, check with your doctor if you’re also taking a blood thinner as well as fish oil capsules. In the meantime, stick to proven ways to lower your chance of heart attack and stroke: • Quit smoking. • Exercise more. • Eat smaller portions. • Decrease saturated fats and eliminate trans fats. • Keep your blood pressure in the normal range, with medicines if needed. • Lower your LDL cholesterol with medication if needed. • Ask your doctor if you should take a baby aspirin.
