On the brink

GOOD MORNING Families need help in fire’s aftermath PLEASANT LAKE — The Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Angola is helping two families displaced by fire last week. The charitable group, based at the St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, is collecting clothing and other necessities for family members. The fire occurred just after midnight on Monday, Sept. 23, at 3175 S. Old U.S. 27, according to Steuben County Communications records. The Steuben Township Volunteer Fire Department handled the blaze, which destroyed the house. Jaccyn Garrison, her husband and four children, and Christinia Binion and her teenage son were living there along with a dog, three cats, a rabbit and a pet rat, said Eric Reynolds, president of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Angola. The cats were lost in the fire and the dog is credited with waking the people in the home to alert them to the emergency. The American Red Cross provided two nights in a hotel and the Society is hoping to provide continued assistance to the people, who are now reportedly living in a camper and tent. They have jobs but are in need of clothing, food, towels, washclothes, personal hygiene products and toiletries, toilet paper that is safe to use in a camper, laundry detergent, dog food, rabbit food, rat food, shoes, pillows and warm blankets. Clothing is needed in the following sizes for the eight victims: 32-by-34 men’s pants, extra large shirts and size 10 shoes; men’s 34-by-32 pants, large shirts and size 9 shoes; size 6 in girls’ pants, size 7 in girls shirts, size 13 girl’s shoes; boys’ size 5 shirts and pants and size 11 shoes; women’s size 24 pants, women’s size 3XL shirts and size 10 shoes; size 38 mens pants and size 2X men’s shirts. Also, baby items are needed as Garrison is expecting a child soon, and all of the items they purchased for the baby were lost in the fire, said Reynolds. Those who wish to help are asked to contact the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Angola at 624-3577 and leave a message.


The Angola High School Marching Hornets reach out as part of this year’s show, “Reaching Out.”

Hornets reach to another first BY AMY OBERLIN

ANGOLA — The Angola High School Marching Hornets had another first-place finish at the Penn Invitational Saturday. The Hornets were judged the top act out of seven bands competing in Class C. This is the second competition Angola has won. The band also received a caption award for best general effect for its show “Reaching Out.” Fairfield High School, which placed second, received caption awards for best music and best visual. Other bands included NorthWood, third; Leo, fourth; John Glenn, fifth; Knox, sixth; and Wawasee, seventh. “Reaching Out” is a dramatic presentation set to Michael Kamen’s “The New Moon in the Old Moon’s Arms.” It spans a range of notes and moods, starting with aggressive tones, moving into a ballad and ending with an upbeat tempo. Director Kevin Fogle said judges this year have appreciated the musicians’ mastery of challenging music. Tarps set on the field use imagery from the iconic reaching hands in the Michelangelo fresco, “The Creation of Adam,” in the Sistine Chapel. The show has a theme of reaching out to others. The Marching Hornets will

GOP resolve crumbles in face of government shutdown today WASHINGTON (AP) — A threatened government shutdown imminent, House Republicans scaled back their demands to delay the nation’s health care law Monday night as the price for essential federal funding, but President Barack Obama and Democrats rejected the proposals as quickly as they were made. “We’re at the brink,” said Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md. On a long day and night in the Capitol, the Senate torpedoed one GOP attempt to tie government financing to changes in “Obamacare.” House Republicans countered with a second despite unmistakable signs their unity was fraying — and Senate Democrats promptly rejected it, as well. That left the next move up to Speaker John Boehner and his House Republican rank and file, with the shutdown deadline of midnight EDT approaching. The stock market dropped on fears that political gridlock between the White House and a tea party-heavy Republican Party would prevail, though analysts suggested significant damage to the national economy was unlikely unless a shutdown lasted more than a few days. Still, a shutdown would send hundreds of thousands of workers SEE SHUTDOWN, PAGE A6

Merrills honored for landscaping FREMONT — Town Council President Steve Brown, along with Cameron Memorial Community Hospital announced the latest recipients of the “Fremont First Beautification Award,” Lonnie and Kristine Merrill. The Merrills were awarded the honor for the outstanding landscaping of their home at 301 Prairie Lane on Saturday. The Merrills have lived in their home for the past five years and have done the majority of the work themselves. “I enjoy doing it,” Lonnie said. “It’s more of a hobby.” The Merrills have put a lot of work into the front landscaping this year, increasing its size and adding many new plants and flowers. Lonnie had to dig out the area by over a foot in order to add

the proper soil for the plants. “They just wouldn’t grow in what was there,” he said. Next year the Merrills would like to begin working on the back. “We are so pleased to present this award to the Merrills,” said Greg Burns, Cameron president and CEO. “It’s so nice to see all the hard work they’ve done to make their corner of the world a little more beautiful.” The purpose of the Fremont First Beautification Award is to promote and recognize the efforts of town residents who beautify their landscapes and the exterior of their properties. The award is being sponsored by Cameron as part of its commitment to promote wellness and a high quality of community life. This honor is awarded quarterly with two awards

recognizing a home’s exterior and two honoring outstanding landscaping. The public is invited to nominate themselves or another resident that is deserving of positive attention. Nominees must be located within the Fremont limits, and the area nominated must be visible from a public right of way. Nomination forms are available on Cameron’s website at or at the Fremont Town Hall at 205 N. Tolford St. Recipients of the award will receive a gift certificate to a local home improvement/landscape nursery store provided Cameron Hospital and will be recognized with a sign in their yard. For more information on the award, contact the Fremont Town Hall at 495-2504.

ANGOLA — At least two established companies reportedly are interested in coming to the city and may be interested in applying for money through the newly-created Angola Investment Fund. That was what Dave Koenig, executive director of the Steuben County Economic Development Corp., told the fund’s board at an organizational Monday meeting. The fund was established after the Angola Common Council opted to set aside $1 million in Major Moves Construction funding that came from the lease of the Indiana Toll Road. The fund was approved by the Indiana State Board of Accounts. The fund’s purpose is to provide low-interest loans and investment capital for start up and small businesses in the city. In doing so, it would serve as a catalyst for future economic development in Angola in a broad variety of business sectors. Guidelines for administering the fund were discussed. They include: • Industry sector entities will be eligible to apply focused on energy, manufacturing, information technology and scientific research. • Evaluation criteria will include strength of business plan, historic performance, industry sector, resumes of principals, job creation, average salaries and wages and capital investment. • Requests may be made for at least $20,000, but not more than $50,000. Investments up to $100,000 may be considered for high-skill, high-wage projects. • The fund won’t provide more SEE FUND, PAGE A6

The rules were to use only one of three Major League Baseball teams — the Chicago White Sox, Texas Rangers or Atlanta Braves — and A.1. Steak Sauce. Huber chose his beloved White Sox, wore eight different outfits in his video devoted to the Sox and won. Huber’s mother, Karen Huber, Fremont, said her

The Elkhart Truth reports the county that four years ago became the symbol of the nation’s unemployment woes had 6 percent job growth between March 2012 and March 2013. Only two counties in Texas had better job growth in the nation during that time span.

Stolen bus batteries close schools CLAYTON (AP) — A central Indiana school district called off classes after the batteries were swiped from several of its school buses. The Mill Creek Community School Corp. said the thefts from buses parked at its bus barn near Cascade High School were discovered early Monday. Officials of the Hendricks County district about 15 miles west of Indianapolis canceled Monday’s classes to allow time for the batteries to be replaced. Sheriff’s Lt. Jim Yetter told WTHR-TV that 17 batteries were taken from six buses in a theft that likely involved more than one person. School district Superintendent Jill Jay told WRTV the theft left too few buses available to transport students.

ANGOLA — The Regional Cancer Care Center of Angola will be offering free breast cancer screening — mammograms — on Oct. 25-26 at the facility at 416 E. Maumee St., Angola. The screening is open to area women who are uninsured or underinsured, a news release said. The screening will take approximately 30 minutes and results will be sent to the patient’s family physician. “Thanks to funding from the Cameron Hospital Foundation, we are able to offer this life saving screening,” said Nan Isenbarger, business director of the Regional Cancer Care Center of Angola. “We are very pleased to have the opportunity to promote early detection and education about breast cancer.” Breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancers. The chance of developing invasive breast cancer at some time in a woman’s life is a little less than 1 in 8, or about 12 percent. Death rates from breast cancer are decreasing as the result of earlier detection through screening and increased awareness, as well as improved treatment, the news release said. The Regional Cancer Care Center of Angola serves the patients of northeastern Indiana, northwestern Ohio, and southern Michigan. The facility, which sits adjacent to Cameron Memorial Community Hospital on East Maumee Street. The facility houses a linear accelerator, a high-tech treatment device that provides radiation therapy. This technology delivers an external beam of radiation through the skin to the tumor. The high-energy x-ray beams produced by the accelerator kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. “Simulation and treatment planning” is also available at the center. This sophisticated computer system helps cancer specialists guide a beam of radiation through the body to pinpoint the tumor. Using computer-modeling technology, specialists can deliver the appropriate dose of radiation while sparing healthy tissue. Chemotherapy treatments are also available at the center. Space is limited for this screening and appointments are necessary to take part. To make an appointment, please call 667-5128.

Briefs • Israel soliders kill one near Gaza border GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — Israeli soldiers opened fire on two Palestinians near the Israel-Gaza border on Monday, killing at least one of them, a Palestinian health official said. Ashraf al-Kidra said the identity of the dead man was not immediately known. The fate of the other Palestinian in the shooting incident was unknown, and it was unclear if the Palestinians were militants or civilians. The Israeli military said its soldiers shot two Palestinians who tampered with the border fence between Israel and the Gaza Strip. The military said the Palestinians approached the fence and damaged it, posing an “imminent danger.” The army said “a hit was confirmed” on both, but refused to elaborate.

Tropical storm hits Vietnam hard HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — Tropical storm Wutip lashed central Vietnam on Monday after sinking at least two Chinese fishing boats near the Paracel Islands, leaving 75 fishermen missing, officials said. The storm uprooted trees, cut power lines and damaged more than 1,000 houses. There was no immediate word of injuries, flooding or major structural damage. Vietnam’s national weather center said Wutip had weakened from a typhoon to a tropical storm by the time it made landfall. It was packing sustained winds of 117 kilometers (73 miles) per hour, it said. Officials evacuated tens of thousands of people from the storm’s path over the previous day. Schools in five central provinces closed and the coast guard told 61,000 fishing boats with 303,000 crew members to take shelter. By nightfall, Wutip had blown the roofs off of more than 1,000 houses.

People • Food critic insults famous Frito pie ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Insults dished out by food critic Anthony Bourdain on an episode of CNN’s “Parts Unknown” have stirred up outrage in New Mexico. The sharp-tongued chef and writer lashed into the “World Famous” Frito pies sold at Santa Fe’s Five & Dime General Store’s snack bar — a tourist attraction and a mainstay in the city’s historic plaza. The dish, according to Bourdain, tasted as if it were made with canned Hormel Chili and a Bourdain “day-glow orange cheese-like substance.” He also charged that the local favorite isn’t even a New Mexico meal, but rather a Texas creation. He said New Mexicans should leave the recipe to the Texans. Mike Collins, store manager of the Five & Dime, says Bourdain was “completely wrong” on the store’s Frito pie. He said their version is homemade from chile grown in New Mexico and remains popular. “I don’t have any idea where he got that from,” Collins said. “I mean, if we’re using canned Hormel Chili then I’d like to buy stock in that because what we have is good.” Still, Collins said he and the staff don’t have any ill feelings toward Bourdain. He said during the taping of his visit, he was nice and a pleasure to be around.


BP accused of lying, witholding facts NEW ORLEANS (AP) — BP lied to the U.S. government and withheld information about the amount of oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico after its well blew out in 2010, attorneys told a judge Monday. But lawyers for the London-based oil giant denied those accusations and said there was no way to prepare for such a unique blowout a mile below the sea floor. Second-guessing the company’s efforts to cap the well was “Monday morning quarterbacking at its worst,” BP attorney Mike Brock said during opening statements of the second phase of a trial over the worst offshore oil spill ever in the U.S. This part focuses on BP’s response to the disaster and is designed to help U.S.

District Judge Carl Barbier determine how much oil spewed into the Gulf. The government’s estimate is some 70 million gallons more than what BP says spilled. Establishing how much oil leaked into the Gulf during the 86-day struggle to cap the well will help figure out the penalties the oil company must pay. Billions of dollars are at stake. The first phase of the trial centered on what caused the blowout. Brian Barr, an attorney for residents and businesses who claim they were hurt by the spill, said BP failed to prepare for a blowout and compounded the problem by misleading federal officials. BP had a 600-page oil spill response plan that only included one page on “source control.” It simply

Parents sleeping with babies, even with risk of SIDS CHICAGO (AP) — The government’s latest infant bed-sharing numbers show a troubling trend: the percentage of U.S. babies sleeping with parents or another child more than doubled since the early 1990s, despite public health messages linking the practice with sudden infant death syndrome. Nearly 14 percent of adults, mostly mothers, surveyed in 2010 said their infants usually shared a bed, either with parents or another child, instead of sleeping alone in a crib. That was up from about 7 percent in 1993, and the increase was mainly among blacks and Hispanics. The practice had leveled off among whites after an increase in the 1990s. Bed-sharing was most common among blacks; nearly one-third of those surveyed said their infants usually shared a bed. “That’s a concern because we know that blacks are at increased risk for SIDS,” said study co-author Marian Willinger of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, which funded the study. “We want to eliminate as many risks as we can for everybody,

particularly in that population where we’re seeing increasing disparities.” SIDS refers to deaths in the first year of life that remain unexplained after autopsies and thorough investigations of the death scene and infants’ medical history. Accidental suffocation in bed is also more common among black infants, although the study didn’t examine infant deaths or accidents associated with bed-sharing. The study was published online Monday in JAMA Pediatrics. The government began annual surveys on infant sleep practices in 1993, after the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended that infants sleep on their backs to prevent SIDS. The new study analyzed 1993-2010 telephone surveys involving nearly 19,000 parents with infants up to 7 months old. More than half the participants since 2006 said doctors had never mentioned bed-sharing or its risks. “That in and of itself is kind of shocking … because the recommendations have long been out,” said SIDS expert Dr. Fern R. Hauck, a family medicine professor at the University of Virginia.

Militants guilty of gruesome acts Syrian official says UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Syria’s foreign minister claimed Monday that his government is fighting a war against al-Qaida-linked militants who eat human hearts and dismember people while they are still alive, then send their limbs to family members. Walid al-Moallem, addressing world leaders at the U.N. General Assembly in New York, also charged that the U.S., Britain and France had blocked the naming of the real perpetrators of chemical weapons attacks in Syria, which he blamed on the opposition. He claimed “terrorists” fighting the regime in the civil war are being supplied with chemical weapons, but he did not name specific nations accused of supplying them. President Barack Obama told the same forum last week that it was President Bashar Assad’s regime that was behind a chemical weapons attack in August that killed hundreds in the Damascus suburbs and brought threats of a retaliatory U.S. strike. Syria subsequently committed to getting rid of its stockpiles of chemical weapons and the U.N.

Security Council voted unanimously on Friday to oblige it to do so based on a plan made by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. Al-Moallem claimed that it is clear to all that offshoots of al-Qaida — “the most dangerous terrorist organization in the world” — is fighting in the Syrian civil war. But some countries refuse to recognize it, he charged. “The scenes of murder, manslaughter and eating human hearts were shown on TV screens, but did not touch blind consciences,” al-Moallem said. “There are innocent civilians whose heads are put on the grill just because they violate the extremist ideology and deviant views of al-Qaida. In Syria … there are murderers who dismember human bodies into pieces while still alive and send their limbs to their families, just because those citizens are defending a unified and secular Syria.” A video published online in May purported to show a member of Syria’s armed opposition eating a human heart while the body of a Syrian soldier lay close by.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Contentious from its conception, President Barack Obama’s health care law has survived the Supreme Court, a battle for the White House and rounds of budget brinkmanship. Now comes the ultimate test: the verdict of the American people. A government shutdown could dampen the rollout today as insurance markets open around the country. But it won’t stop the main components of “Obamacare” from going live as scheduled, glitches and all. The biggest expansion of society’s safety net since Medicare will be in the hands of consumers, and most of their concerns don’t revolve around ideology and policy details. People want to know if they can afford the premiums, if the coverage will be solid, where the bureaucratic pitfalls are and if new federal and state websites will really demystify shopping for health insurance. Full answers may take months. Expect the rollout to get off to a slow start, with some bumps. People who don’t have access to job-based health insurance can start shopping right away for subsidized private coverage. Or they can wait to sign up as late as Dec. 15 and still get coverage by Jan. 1. Many will probably want to see how it goes for the first wave of applicants before they jump in. Glitches are likely to pop up in the new online insurance markets. Over the weekend, several states were still struggling to get plan information to display

accurately on their websites. Earlier, the federal government announced delays for small business and Spanish-language signups. A protracted government shutdown could slow needed technology fixes. Consumers also could run into problems getting their right subsidy amounts. People with complicated tax returns and extended families living under the same roof could find they need personal assistance to work out the issues. Referrals to state Medicaid programs might go smoothly in some states, not so well in others. “As this unveils, it is going to be very clear that everything can’t be done on a computer,” Christine Ferguson, director of Rhode Island’s marketplace, said in an interview prior to the launch. “But by Day 60 to 120, and the year after that, it’s going to get a lot more user friendly and effective.” Eventually, at least half the nation’s nearly 50 million uninsured people are expected to get coverage through the Affordable Care Act, either through subsidized private plans sold in the new markets or an expanded version of Medicaid in states accepting it for low-income adults. Immigrants in the country illegally will be the largest group remaining uninsured. People who do have access to employer-based plans will also see changes. Starting Jan. 1, virtually all Americans will have a legal obligation to carry health insurance or face fines. Passing up the company medical plan in exchange

for a bigger paycheck may no longer be an option. But employees who lose their jobs, entrepreneurs starting their own businesses and people in between school and work could have an easier time getting coverage. Also as of Jan. 1, a pre-existing medical condition will no longer be a barrier to getting health insurance. A partial government shutdown, driven by Republican opponents of increasing the federal role in health care, will not stop what they call “Obamacare.” Core provisions and benefits are shielded from annual budget battles. If other government services are shut down, the health care overhaul can largely keep going — much like Social Security and Medicare. The federal government is taking the lead in running the new insurance markets in 36 states. Polls show the country remains divided over the law, with opponents outnumbering supporters. Nonetheless, a Kaiser Family Foundation survey released over the weekend found 56 percent of Americans disapprove of cutting off funding to expand coverage for the uninsured, as congressional Republicans are pressing to do. The poll also found that people are in a fog about what the law means for them. Nearly three-fourths of the uninsured were unaware of the new insurance markets opening to serve them. In states not expanding Medicaid, millions of uninsured people below the federal poverty level will likely be shut out of coverage.

SHUTDOWN: Obama speaks bluntly about GOP FROM PAGE A1

home and inconvenience millions of people who rely on federal services or are drawn to the nation’s parks and other attractions. Some critical parts of the government — from the military to air traffic controllers — would remain open. As lawmakers squabbled, President Barack Obama spoke bluntly about House Republicans. “You don’t get to extract a ransom for doing your job, for doing what you’re supposed to be doing anyway, or just because there’s a law there that you don’t like,” he said. Speaking of the health care law that undergoes a major expansion today, he said emphatically, “That funding is already in place. You can’t shut it down.” House Speaker John Boehner responded a few hours later on the House floor. “The American people don’t want a shutdown and neither do I,” he said. Yet, he added, the new health care law “is having a devastating impact. … Something has to be done.” For all the Republican defiance, it appeared that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and fellow Democrats had the upper hand in the fast-approaching end game, and that Republicans might soon have to decide whether to allow the government to shut down for the first time in 17 years — or come away empty-handed from a bruising struggle with Obama. Some Republicans balked, moderates and conservatives alike. Rep. Phil Gingrey of Georgia said it felt as if

Republicans were retreating, given their diminishing demands, and Rep. Scott Rigell of Virginia said there was not unanimity when the rank and file met to discuss a next move. Yet for the first time since the showdown began more than a week ago, there was also public dissent from the Republican strategy that has been carried out at the insistence of lawmakers working in tandem with GOP Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Rep. Charles Dent, R-Pa., said he was willing to vote for stand-alone legislation that would keep the government running and contained no health care-related provisions. “I would be supportive of it, and I believe the votes are there in the House to pass it at that point,” the fifth-term congressman said. Other Republicans sought to blame Democrats for any shutdown, but Dent conceded that Republicans would bear the blame, whether or not they deserved it. Hours before the possible shutdown, the Senate voted 54-46 to reject the House-passed measure that would have kept the government open but would have delayed implementation of the health care law for a year and permanently repealed a medical device tax that helps finance it. In response, House Republicans sought different concessions in exchange for allowing the government to remain open. They called for a one-year delay in a requirement in the health care law for individuals to purchase coverage.

The same measure also would require members of Congress and their aides as well as the president, vice president and the administration’s political appointees to bear the full cost of their own coverage by barring the government from making the customary employer contribution. “This is a matter of funding the government and providing fairness to the American people,” said Boehner. “Why wouldn’t members of Congress vote for it?” The vote was 228-201, with a dozen Republicans opposed and nine Democrats in favor. Unimpressed, the White House issued a veto threat against the bill and Senate Democrats swatted it on a 54-46 party line vote about an hour later. Obama followed up his public remarks with phone calls to Boehner and the three other top leaders of Congress, telling Republicans he would continue to oppose attempts to delay or cut federal financing of the health care law. Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck said the House’s top Republican told the president that the health care law was costing jobs and that it was unfair that businesses were getting exemptions but American families were not. The impact of a shutdown would be felt unevenly. Many low-to-moderate-income borrowers and first-time homebuyers seeking government-backed mortgages could face delays, and Obama said veterans’ centers would be closed.

than 50 percent of any eligible project. • A one-time non-refundable application fee of $50 will be charged at the time of application. Koenig said the fund would be administered through three-year convertible loans. The city would then be able to convert the loans into equity at the end of their terms. The city has proposed an additional $275,000 in Major Moves money for the fund in the 2014 budget, which has not yet been approved by council.

Establishment of the fund — operating under the city’s auspices — has been spearheaded by Angola Common Councilwoman Kathy Armstrong. “We will be doing marketing, but I don’t expect a flood of applicants at the onset,” she said, adding that the entire focus is on job creation. “Start up success rates can be low … We’ve done everything in our power to mitigate the risks.” Armstrong said if the city invests in a business and it fails, funding probably wouldn’t be recuperated. If jobs have been created

through the venture, she said it likely wouldn’t be a total loss. In sustaining the fund, Armstrong said she’s hopeful other communities might jump on board in the future with city on the economic development venture. “Our second goal is to sustain the fund. I would hope in five our six years down the line other communities would want to replicate,” she said. The first applications for the fund are due Oct. 18.

Briefly • Cubs fire Sveum CHICAGO (AP) — Theo Epstein is proud of the talent in the Chicago Cubs’ minor league system. The president of baseball operations thinks Dale Sveum is going to be a successful manager one day. He just doesn’t think Sveum is the right guy to help all those prospects become successful major leaguers. The Cubs fired Sveum on Monday after finishing last in the NL Central for the first time in seven years, ending a two-year run that produced more losses than any other stretch in the team’s cursed history. “It’s absolutely imperative that we create the best environment possible for young players to come up here, continue to learn, continue to develop and thrive at the big league level and win, ultimately,” Epstein said during an afternoon news conference. “And that’s not an easy thing to do. “A big part of the reason why we’re here today is because we took a good hard look at that and we decided that we needed to try to get it right before they come up.” Sveum was among Epstein’s first hires after the executive came over from the Boston Red Sox in 2011. He had little experience as a manager when he agreed to take the job, and he knew the Cubs were at the very beginning of a top-to-bottom overhaul that they hoped would transform them into perennial contenders. He just thought he would get more time to make it work. “You come in and you get a job like this and you want to see it through and so you’re very disappointed you didn’t get to really get anything started,” Sveum said in a parking lot outside Wrigley Field.

Barons winFreelsinnotches extra time 200th career victory BY PHIL FRIEND


DeKalb senior Ashtin Egly tries to beat Bellmont defenders to the ball during Monday’s Northeast Hoosier Conference matchup. The Barons topped the Braves, 4-2.

WATERLOO — Monday night’s game against Bellmont was a landmark occasion for DeKalb coach Jed Freels. Freels, the boys’ soccer head coach since 1999, notched his 200th career victory Monday night with a 4-2 win over Bellmont. But it didn’t come without a little bit of theatrics. The Barons scored with five minutes left in regulation to force extra time, and got two goals from Brennan Cochran in overtime to seal it. “Two hundred is huge, not just for me as a coach but huge for the program,” Freels said. “When we took over our first year we were 8-9 (in 1999). We didn’t know if we’d ever have a winning season and we’ve posted a winning season every season since. That’s just the legacy of the hard work of all of our players.” Monday’s contest was

nearly a special one for Cochran, a junior. The striker notched a hat trick to bring him to 99 career goals, one shy of the magical 100 number. It appeared Cochran had scored his fourth of the match — and reached 100 — with six seconds left in the first overtime, but the whistle blew for a foul on a Baron player just seconds before he scored. “Ninety-nine goals and that’s against good competition against great high schools,” Freels said. “For us, it’s a great testament. If he’s got space to work the ball on his foot, you know you’re going to see something phenomenal. And we have a great support staff for him.” This match was very nearly a Bellmont victory. The Braves (7-7, 2-5 Northeast Hoosier Conference) routinely packed six defenders in the box to keep the Barons’ (12-3, 4-3 NHC) potent offense

at bay. Bellmont led 2-1 before DeKalb leveled the match five minutes from time, as Landon Cochran’s corner kick went right to Ross Gramling, who put the free header in the back of the net. “Honestly, I think we were a little flat-footed the whole game, not having our minds in it totally,” Gramling said. “And on that corner kick, I feel like everybody kind of knew that goal was going in. The intensity was there, it was quite, it went in. Hard work, that’s all.” Gramling, one of seven seniors, talked about the legacy of previous DeKalb teams in helping Freels notch his 200th victory. “It’s a huge legacy that we got to carry on from the past four years we’ve been here,” he said. It was all DeKalb in extra time. Brennan Cochran scored twice in the first seven-minute overtime period — the SEE BARONS, PAGE B2

East Noble senior Meliissa Huff scored three goals as the Knights topped New Haven 4-0 on Monday.

KENDALLVILLE — In the final regular season game of her career at East Noble, senior Melissa Huff came through with a hat trick as the Knights closed the Northeast Hoosier Conference season with a 4-0 shutout of New Haven. “She was on fire in front of the net,” East Noble coach Paul Cook said. “It’s nice to get a win here in the senior’s last regular season home game and hopefully build some momentum for sectionals.” The Knights will close the regular season on Saturday at Wayne and play host to a sectional tournament that begins on Oct. 10 with a first-round game against Leo.

Prep Soccer • and move on,” Huff said. Huff, who had four goals earlier this season in a match with Angola, struck with her first goal on Monday with 2:40 left in the half on a cross in front of the net by Taylor Rex. Up 1-0 at the break, the Knights struck again seven minutes into the second half when Huff broke free in front of the net and slipped a shot past the New Haven keeper. Huff struck with her third goal 17 minutes into the half on another assist from Rex. The final score of the game came with 1:50 remaining when sophomore Alex Rider connected. In all, the Knights had 22 shots in the game. “I’m just proud of the team, this was our sixth shutout of the year,” Cook said. “Our keeper does a good job for us — it’s just huge for us.” Senior Vickie Nguyen recorded the shutout in goal. East Noble is 5-8-2 overall and finishes the NHC season with a 2-5

mark for sixth place. The team’s league wins came against New Haven and Columbia City. Seniors on the EN squad are Huff, Nguyen, Audrey Slone, Janelle Wasson, Alissa Rex, Lindsey Casselman, Caraline Kolodziejczak, Jocelyn Houlihan and Cassie Gaff. DeKalb 3, Bellmont 1 In Decatur, the Barons clinched a share of the Northeast Hoosier Conference. It’s their second league title in school history and their first conference crown in 11 years.

Fleener playing big INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Coby Fleener has finally found his footing in the NFL. The Colts’ big tight end is catching passes and stretching defenses. He’s helping Indy’s ground game and providing Andrew Luck with a consistent outlet receiver. He’s playing with confidence, becoming productive and emerging as the kind of playmaker the Colts envisioned when they selected him in the 2012 draft. “In practices, he’s fast, he’s not thinking, you can tell when a guy’s thinking and you don’t see that,” coach Chuck Pagano said Monday. “You see him out there playing fast, a big, tall fast guy that’s athletic and can make plays. He had a great day yesterday (Sunday). Any time you can have an outing like he had and make plays, he’s going to build off that and it’s all confidence to me.” Part of the evolution is by design. He played with Luck and for Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton at Stanford, and Fleener seems much more comfortable in his second NFL season than his first. The offense in Indy

(3-1) has changed, too. Hamilton has installed a tight-end friendly scheme that includes more power running and shorter, quicker passes, features that take better advantage of Fleener’s athleticism. The other part is that Fleener has taken advantage of his opportunities. When starting tight end Dwayne Allen went down with a seasonending hip injury in the season opener, Fleener knew he would have a bigger role in the offense, and he has responded. On Sunday at Jacksonville, Luck threw seven passes to Fleener. He caught five, matching Reggie Wayne’s total, for 77 yards and a touchdown. And over the last three weeks, the 6-foot-6, 251-pound Illinois native has caught 11 of 15 balls thrown in his direction. What’s different? “I would say that I have to pick up some slack as far as some plays where Dwayne would have been in,” Fleener said. “But ultimately, our game plan I think has stayed pretty true to what it would have been with Dwayne or without him.” The biggest change, though, has been confidence.

first on an assist from Grant Lockwood and the second unassisted, when he tucked a shot into a small opening near-post. DeKalb was on the attack throughout most of the first half, but Bellmont took a 1-0 lead 28 minutes in when Seth King scored against the run of play. Three minutes before halftime, Brennan Cochran tied the match at one after catching up to a through ball by Brad Lancaster and

outracing two defenders to put the ball in the net. However, just a minute later, the Braves retook the lead when Cook curled one in from distance past a diving Chase Secrist. Bellmont keeper Caleb Schell was busy all night. He faced 19 Baron shots on goal and they tallied 27 total shots for the game, a lot of them from distance due to the Braves’ defensive strategy. “There’s no doubt that we’re always playing a heavily-laden defense,� Freels

said. “We have to work to get through. We wanted to drop it back and try to do some scoring outside the 18, and we didn’t do very well because their center-mids also dropped back. When they resign themselves to do that, you know eventually a goal is going to go in — you just don’t know when.� Secrist made three saves on the the night. Lockwood, another senior, celebrated the win with the rest of his classmates.




In this June 24 file photo, the Chicago Blackhawks pose with the Stanley Cup after beating the Boston Bruins 3-2 in Game 6 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Finals, in Boston. There are old faces in

new places, new rules and a daunting challenge facing the Blackhawks, who attempt to become the first team to repeat as Stanley Cup champs in 15 years.


Enjoy the Stanley Cup-banner raising ceremony for as long as possible, Chicago. Once the puck drops to usher in the new NHL season in Chicago, Montreal and Edmonton today, recent history suggests someone other than the Blackhawks will be hoisting the Cup in June. The 1997-98 Detroit Red Wings stand as the league’s last franchise to repeat as champions. “You’ve got players moving all the time now. The competition level is good or better than ever before,� TV analyst and former coach Pierre McGuire said. “And the ultimate thing is we haven’t had NHL expansion in almost 12 or 14 years now. “And because of that, the talent bucket is full.� Despite that, McGuire thinks Chicago has as good a chance as any to repeat fresh off a lockout-shortened season. “I believe we can start to use the ‘D’ word with Chicago’s dynasty,� he said of a franchise that’s won two of the past four titles. Former player-turnedbroadcaster Eddie Olczyk, however, noted several obstacles facing Chicago. Namely? The Olympics. Chicago could have as many as 14 players competing at the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. “When you throw in the Olympic break,� Olczyk said. “It’s going to be very taxing.� One step at a time, said Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews, whose team opens against Washington. “We want to put ourselves, come playoff

time, to be that team that can compete for it again,� Toews said. “There’s a lot of things that play into that. That’s our goal for now.� Here’s five more things to watch out for as the NHL enters its 96th year: FAMILIAR FACES, NEW PLACES: Vinny’s in Philly, Alfie’s in Motown, and Tim Thomas ended his one-year sabbatical to land in Florida. These were among the more significant moves involving the NHL’s old guard this offseason. Vincent Lecavalier started the ball rolling, when the former Tampa Bay captain signed a five-year, $22.5 million contract with the Flyers. Daniel Alfredsson, the long-time Senators captain, jumped ship to sign with the Red Wings. His departure prompted the Senators to acquire forward Bobby Ryan in a deal with Anaheim. And then there’s Thomas, who re-emerged last week by signing a one-year deal with the Panthers. NEW RULES: Un-tucked jerseys and visors are in fashion. And there’s the possibility of the NHL introducing a form of no-touch icing. The NHL Players’ Association gave the go-ahead for the rule change that makes icing a race to an imaginary line across the faceoff dots instead of the puck, which was given a trial run during the preseason. Hybrid icing will be in effect for the start of the NHL regular season. The goal is to reduce the chance of injuries that can occur when players collide at the end boards.

Sabres forward Steve Ott doesn’t like it. “I think it’s terrible,� he said. “There’s too much hesitation from the referee to the players going to get the puck, and that hesitation slows down the game.� In other changes, players with fewer than 25 games of NHL experience must wear a visor. Players will also not be permitted to tuck their jerseys into their pants to expose any protective padding. GOALIE SHUFFLE: There’s a spotlight on goalies who switched teams and on some that stayed put. Cory Schneider is out of Roberto Luongo’s shadow in Vancouver to become Martin Brodeur’s heir-apparent in New Jersey. The Toronto Maple Leafs made a bid to shore up their crease by acquiring Jonathan Bernier in a trade with Los Angeles. Then there’s the Flyers’ near-annual offseason carousel. Newly signed free agent Ray Emery is competing with Steve Mason for the starting job after Philadelphia gave up on Ilya Bryzgalov. Questions remain regarding the status of several established veterans. In Pittsburgh, Marc-Andre Fleury is on the hotseat after his latest playoff meltdown sent him to the bench last spring. Fleury will open the season as the starter by default with Tomas Vokoun out indefinitely due to blood clots. Ryan Miller’s future in Buffalo is uncertain, too. The Sabres haven’t ruled out the possibility of trading Miller before his contract expires after this season.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Texas AD to retire in 2014

MLS Standings

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Longtime Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds will step down in August 2014 and move into a consulting role at the nation’s wealthiest college athletic program, a person with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press on Monday. The school is expected to make a formal announcement today, according to the person who spoke condition of anonymity because they did not want to pre-empt a statement from university officials. The Austin American-Statesman first reported Dodds’ decision. Dodds could not immediately be reached for comment. Dodds vigorously denied a report earlier this month that he was stepping down on Dec. 31. Under the retirement plan to be announced today, Dodds will remain on the job through Aug. 31, 2014 and move into a consulting role through 2015. Dodds is under contract at Texas through 2015 at $700,000 per year with a $1 million annuity if he’s employed at the end of August 2014. Dodds, 76, came to Texas from Kansas State in 1981. During his tenure, the Texas men’s program has won 14 national championships and 107 conference titles, most notably the 2005 national football championship. Texas also modernized and expanded its stadiums and facilities and grew into a massive, money-generating machine that brought in $163 million last year. Dodds — who once said about Texas’ wealth, “We are the Joneses” — oversaw the school’s shift from the old Southwest Conference to the Big 12, and Texas’ 20-year, $300 million partnership with ESPN for the Longhorn Network, a 24-hour channel dedicated to Longhorns sports.

Twins keeping Gardenhire MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins and manager Ron Gardenhire agreed to a new two-year extension on Monday, keeping the second-longest tenured manager in the big leagues in the Twin Cities through the 2015 season. “My father was a military guy and said the easy thing to do was walk,” said Gardenhire, who just finished the final season of his existing contract. “The hard thing to do was stay and try to make it better. That’s what I’m going to try to do here. I want to make it better.” Gardenhire has a career record of 998-947 (.513) as a major league manager, and trails only Tom Kelly on the Twins’ all-time win list (1,140). But all the losing the last three years was starting to wear on the fans, many of whom wanted to see some big changes made to an organization seems lost its way after being a model franchise last decade. Instead, the Twins brought back the 2010 AL manager of the year and his entire staff, too. “Ron Gardenhire didn’t get stupid overnight,” Twins President Dave St. Peter said. “He was the manager of the year in 2010. I don’t think there’s been a manager, a coach in this town that has ever connected with Main Street Minnesota better than Ron Gardenhire. I think people relate to him. I think they’re angry with the Twins and people want a scapegoat. “But at the end of the day, we believe organizationally and I think most Minnesotans believe that Ron Gardenhire isn’t the problem. We’ve got to get him better players.”

Wilfork likely out for season FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Vince Wilfork was pursuing a play when he planted his right foot, dropped to the ground and probably ended his season. “It doesn’t look too good for Vince,” New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Monday on WEEI radio. “I think he’s got a pretty serious injury and it’s probably unlikely that he’ll be able to play again this year.” The Boston Globe reported that the star defensive tackle tore his right Achilles tendon in Sunday’s 30-23 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Belichick did not specify the injury. Wilfork’s agent, Kennard McGuire, did not respond to requests for comment. At his news conference earlier Monday, Belichick said he didn’t know much about Wilfork’s injury or whether he would miss most or all of the remaining games. He said he hadn’t met yet with medical personnel.

Kings extend Cousins’ deal SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Vivek Ranadive has made a fortune in the software industry by betting on the right people. The new owner of the Sacramento Kings is now betting big on DeMarcus Cousins. The Kings signed Cousins to a four-year maximum contract extension worth a reported $62 million Monday, saying the 23-year-old center is the foundation the franchise will build on to lead a struggling team into a new era. Sacramento hasn’t had a winning season since 2006, but the new Kings management is comfortable investing in a player considered one of the NBA’s best young big men but who also has drawn multiple suspensions from both the team and the league for his behavior. “From my perspective, it isn’t really that much of a leap of faith,” said Ranadive, whose purchase of the team from the Maloof family was approved by the NBA in May. “I’m just doing what I do in my business every day, just betting on the best. And he represents the best.” Cousins led the Kings last season with averages of 17.1 points and 9.9 rebounds.

Reports raises concerns for Hoosier girls A new report focusing specifically on Hoosier girls identifies several challenges for Indiana. Saint Mary’s College in South Bend has compiled “The Status of Girls in Indiana 2013” — the first report of its kind. A first The report says teen glance pregnancy is on the reveals decline for both the concerns about high nation and Indiana, but rates of sexual it is not improving as rape, activity and quickly in Indiana. depression among Indiana’s young women ages 10-19. The report says 14.5 percent of Indiana high school girls in a 2011 survey reported they had been raped — the second highest rate among 46 states reporting such data. In Indiana high schools, about 51 percent of girls said they have had sexual intercourse, although only 40 percent said they were currently sexually active. About a third of Indiana girls in grades 8-10 reported feeling sad or hopeless. Girls were more likely than boys to consider, plan or attempt suicide. One expert reacting to the report wants to know if girls are being taught in school how to respond when they are threatened with rape or other forms of sexual violence. The report does not indicate how the rate of voluntary sexual activity among Indiana high school girls compares to national averages. But whether it is above or below average, Indiana’s rate seems disturbingly high. The report says teen pregnancy is on the decline for both the nation and Indiana, but it is not improving as quickly in Indiana. In addition to depression issues, Hoosier girls struggle with body-weight expectations. Indiana’s high school girls were more likely than all U.S. high school girls to take diet pills, powders, or liquids, as well as vomit or take laxatives in order to lose weight or to keep from gaining weight. However, Indiana’s high school girls actually are more likely to be overweight than the national average. They also were more likely to be overweight in 2011 than they were in 2003. Pointing to the reasons, the report says Hoosier girls are less physically active than boys, and their diets are worse than national averages. On the bright side, girls are more likely to graduate from high school than boys. The graduation rate is 91 percent for girls, compared to 86 percent for boys in Indiana. It’s good to see that Hoosier girls are completing the journey to a high school diploma, but the path through their school years should not be so filled with perils. Schools, families and community institutions need to work on ways to help Indiana girls find happier, healthier roads to adulthood.

Letter to The Editor • What Thomas Jefferson should have said To the editor: After the Constitution and Bill of Rights were ratified, Thomas Jefferson said: “I predict future happiness for

Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” He probably should have added: “And, from the history of governments, to secure that happiness over the long

term, it is obvious Americans will have to reject every such pretense.” As I’ve said before, “The government large enough to give you all you need is large enough to take all you have.” Fritz Busch Fort Wayne

Who wears the sweatpants in this house? After Sue wrote “Wash me” with her finger in the dust on the most expensive piece of exercise equipment I own, I joined the health club. At home, I just wasn’t getting it done. I’d walk past the equipment 20 times a day and say to myself, “I’ll do that right after lunch.” After lunch, I’d think, “It can wait till after dinner. But should you really exercise after a heavy meal? I’ll do it in the morning.” Besides, there’s so much other stuff to do at home, so many distractions — answer the phone, let out the cat, vacuum the carpets, let in the cat, do the laundry, let out the cat, go on an errand, let in the cat, shop for dinner, let in the cat, oh, he’s already in, visit Facebook, check my email, let out the cat, and watch that TV infomercial about how much better I’d feel and look if I just bought this one piece of exercise equipment that does everything the other one doesn’t. But it turns out that lying on the sofa, watching “Duck Dynasty,” eating Hot Pockets and listening to the cat snore next to a piece of exercise equipment doesn’t really melt away the pounds. Owning it isn’t enough: Apparently, you

have to use it. Who knew? Unless you’re a truly motivated person, it’s almost impossible to stick to a regime at your own house. Besides, you don’t really need any fancy equipment to do pushups, crunches or squats; you just have to do them. If you’re not already exercising JIM without the equipment, you MULLEN won’t suddenly start exercising with it. That’s why I joined the health club. Once you’re there, there’s not much else to do but exercise. The thing I like about my health club is that I am not the most out-of-shape person there. They seem to have gone to great lengths to find people who are as lazy and paunchy as I am, or worse, which is a comfort. And absolutely no one there looks like they are going to win a gold medal in weightlifting or beach volleyball in the next Olympics. It’s full of normal people like schoolteachers and bank tellers, trying to keep one step ahead of

dreaded couch potato buildup. I had to buy a new gym bag and some sweats, so I’m pawing through the sweatpants at the Shop and Go Away and everything on the shelf is size 4XL, 3XL or 2XL. Obviously, if you are buying the 4XL, you are either a professional athlete or you don’t sweat very much. I’ve also noticed that a lot of people in this store are wearing sweatpants even though they’re not at the gym. When I was in school, after we exercised, we changed back into our school clothes and put the smelly gym clothes in our lockers. Sweatpants weren’t something you’d wear when you weren’t actually in the gym or on the field. Now people go to the mall in sweat clothes; they fly across the country in them. It’s so common to see people who obviously don’t run wearing running gear, to see people who don’t play tennis wearing tennis togs, to see people who don’t play football or basketball wearing football and basketball jerseys that we don’t even notice it anymore. I don’t know what you’re wearing as you read this, but however casual it is, there’s probably somebody in line down at the bank wearing something even less

I don’t know what you’re wearing as you read this, but however casual it is, there’s probably somebody in line down at the bank wearing something even less appropriate.

• appropriate. It strikes me that the fashion industry should take note of what the sportswear designers are doing — that is, name their clothing for what people should be doing when they wear it. If they can make running shorts and swimsuits and yoga pants, why can’t they make Flying On An Airplane clothing? Supermarket Shopping clothing? Waiting For The Bus clothing? Applying For a Job clothing? They could do it without breaking a sweat. JIM MULLEN is a syndicated columnist with Newspaper Enterprise Association. He can be contacted at




Husband supports his wife through mastectomy DEAR ABBY: I am writing in response to “Anonymous in Wisconsin” (Aug. 11), the cancer survivor whose husband has lost interest in her after her double mastectomy. I am OUTRAGED by his insensitivity and lack of love. She says she doesn’t want to leave him. My question to her is, why not? She deserves better. I am a cancer survivor who was diagnosed with breast cancer seven months after I was married. Prior to my decision to have a radical mastectomy, I offered my husband the chance to leave. (After all, one doesn’t expect “worse” to come so soon after the wedding.) The prospect of children, which we had discussed and was important to us, was uncertain because of my subsequent chemotherapy. My husband didn’t hesitate. He said, “You would not leave me. We will adopt.”




On our first wedding anniversary I was bald, and he treated me to a beautiful, romantic getaway. Although I did have reconstruction, it was a long process. He was supportive from day one. Fifteen years later, I was DEAR diagnosed breast ABBY with cancer again. I had Jeanne Phillips another radical mastectomy followed by chemo and reconstruction. Abby, my husband again made me feel beautiful even when I didn’t. There are men out there who define a woman not by the size of her breasts, but by the beauty of her heart. — SURVIVOR IN

NATICK, MASS. DEAR SURVIVOR: I want to thank you and the many breast cancer survivors who wrote me — and their supportive spouses — for telling me your personal stories. Readers, I am printing this to remind you that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Read on: DEAR ABBY: I had to write to “Anonymous.” I kept hoping my husband of 20 years would change his mind and accept my new body. However, because he could not, I chose to divorce him and it liberated me. At first, I felt that if the one person who was supposed to care couldn’t look at me, then no other man would either. I was wrong. After five years of dating, I never once encountered a man who was as insensitive as my husband had been. I have now found the man of my dreams.

Antiviral medicines help ease shingles pain he never had worn to work before. If you’re over age 50 and have had shingles pain for less than three days, the current recommendations call for doctors to prescribe antiviral medicine to kill the virus that causes shingles. (If you are younger than ASK 50 and very DOCTOR K. uncomfortable from shingles that Dr. Anthony began in the last three your Komaroff days, doctor may still prescribe antiviral therapy.) The two medicines recommended most often are famciclovir (Famvir) and valacyclovir (Valtrex). These antiviral medications not

only help shorten the days of pain that you have, they also help reduce the risk of long-lasting shingles pain, a condition called post-herpetic neuralgia. The pain that accompanies shingles can be intense. If the antiviral medicine does not provide enough relief, you can take additional pain medicines. Start with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and acetaminophen. If necessary, your doctor will prescribe more potent pain medicines; these include codeine, tramadol and (when the pain is very severe) oxycodone. Some studies led doctors to add corticosteroid drugs such as prednisone to the treatment of shingles. However, as more studies of this treatment have been completed, it looks as though these medicines may offer more risks than benefits. You should also gently

DEAR DOCTOR K: I’ve been diagnosed with shingles. What can I take for the pain? DEAR READER: Shingles, also known as herpes zoster or just zoster, is caused by the varicella-zoster virus. It is the same virus that causes chickenpox. Once you have had chickenpox, the varicella-zoster virus remains in your body’s nerve tissues. It is inactive, but it can be reactivated later in life. This causes shingles. When the virus reactivates, it causes a burning or tingling sensation in the affected areas. A few days later, the virus causes a blistery rash. (I’ve put an illustration of this process on my website, AskDoctorK. com.) Your affected skin may be so painful and sensitive that you cannot even stand having your clothing touching the area. One patient of mine with shingles on his forearm switched for several weeks to wearing a short-sleeved shirt to the office, something


rinse your skin rash and blisters once or twice daily with cool water. Your doctor may suggest that you use antibiotic ointment on open areas. Shingles usually takes seven to 10 days to run its course. Blisters may take several weeks to disappear completely. The duration of pain is highly variable. Most people’s pain decreases within two or three months. However, a small number of people develop post-herpetic neuralgia and continue to have pain for many months, or even years. Different medications from those used during the attack of shingles are effective. These include tricyclic drugs, gabapentin and pregabalin. These drugs alter the way your central nervous system perceives pain signals. If the pain is severe, then the more potent drugs used for the pain of shingles may also be helpful.

Kenyan forces accused of looting Two generals forced to retire

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Jewelry cases smashed. Mobile phones ripped from displays. Cash registers emptied. Alcohol stocks plundered. For the second time in two months, poorly paid Kenyan security forces that moved in to control an emergency are being accused of robbing the very property they were supposed to protect. First the troops were accused of looting during a huge fire in August at Nairobi’s main airport. Now shop owners at Westgate Mall are returning to their stores after last week’s devastating terrorist attack to find displays ransacked and valuables stolen. One witness told The Associated Press that he saw a Kenyan soldier take cigarettes out of a dead man’s pocket. Shopkeepers spent Monday carting merchandise and other valuables out of their stores and restaurants to prevent any more thefts. No one can say for sure who is responsible, but Kenya’s security forces are strongly suspected. Soon after the attack began on Sept. 21, Kenyan officials put a cordon around the mall, allowing only security forces and a few government personnel to pass through. Since then, alcohol stocks from the restaurants

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a rare move, the top Marine on Monday forced two generals into retirement after concluding they should be held to account for failing to secure a base in Afghanistan against a Taliban attack that killed two Marines. Gen. James Amos, the commandant of the Marine Corps, said in announcing his decision that Maj. Gen. Charles M. Gurganus and Maj. Gen. Gregg A. Sturdevant “did not take adequate force protection measures” at Camp Bastion, a sprawling base and airfield in southwestern Afghanistan that was the Taliban target.

order a formal investigation after the attack. In June, Amos asked U.S. Central Command to investigate, and he said he decided to take action against the two generals after reviewing the results of that investigation. “While I am mindful of the degree of difficulty the Marines in Afghanistan faced in accomplishing a demanding combat mission with a rapidly declining force, my duty requires me to remain true to the timeless axioms related relating to command responsibility and accountability,” Amos said. Amos added that Gurganus bore “final accountability” for the lives and equipment under his command, and had made “an error in judgment” in underestimating the risk posed by the Taliban in the Bastion area of Helmand province, which included his own headquarters at a sprawling based known as Camp Leatherneck. Sturdevant was in charge of Marine aviation in that region of Afghanistan. Amos said Sturdevant “did not adequately assess the force protection situation” at Bastion.
