GOOD MORNING Grissom letter fails to sell at auction CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A letter written by Mercury 7 astronaut Gus Grissom that exposes resentment over the pick of John Glenn as the first American to orbit the Earth has failed to sell at auction. The October 1961 letter to his mother had a high bid of $13,155 in the online sale run by RR Auction of Amherst, N.H. Before the auction ended Thursday, company officials estimated it could bring $80,000. A spokesman said Friday that because the minimum price was not offered, the letter was withdrawn. In the letter, Grissom divulges the flight crew for the first orbital mission. He writes: “All of us are mad because Glenn was picked.” Grissom died with two other astronauts in a launch pad fire while preparing for an Apollo mission in 1967.
Huq takes deal
The plea agreement reached between Mahfuz Huq and the Steuben Huq County Prosecutor’s Office calls for a maximum executed sentence of 40 years. Up to 10 years of probation could be added at the judge’s discretion.
Manslaughter admission made
BY AMY OBERLIN firstname.lastname@example.org
ANGOLA — Mahfuz Huq admitted Friday to voluntary manslaughter, ending a notorious homicide case that has been pending nearly 25 years. Huq, 47, had been scheduled for a change of venue hearing Friday morning in Steuben Superior Court. He appeared before Judge William Fee in jailhouse orange with his Indianapolis attorney, James Voyles, and Angola counsel, Linda Wagoner. They presented a plea agreement that called for a maximum executed prison sentence of 40 years and dismissal
• of charges of murder and intimidation as well as a six-count burglary case. Huq pleaded guilty to Count III, voluntary manslaughter, an additional count filed recently. He allegedly killed Todd Kelley, 19, of Hamilton, on Aug. 9, 1989, in a sudden heat fueled by jealousy because Kelley had been with a girl Huq also had been dating. Fee took the plea under advisement and set a sentencing hearing for April 4 at 9 a.m. in Superior Court. “There are a lot of witnesses that are not in this country,” said Voyles. SEE HUQ, PAGE A7

FROM STAFF REPORTS
INDIANAPOLIS — The jobless rate has fallen below 7 percent throughout the four counties of northeast Indiana, according to reports released Friday by the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. Data covering two months was released Friday; the September unemployment reports had been delayed due to the government shutdown earlier this fall. According to the report, the unemployment rate fell in all four counties in September, with Noble and Steuben counties joining LaGrange County below 7 percent during that month. DeKalb County dipped below 7 percent in October and was the only area county to see its unemployment drop that month. “Today’s data release was again quite positive for northeast Indiana,” said Ellen Cutter, director of the Community Research Institute at Indiana University-Purdue University, Fort
Wayne. “The (10-county) region’s NSA (non-seasonally adjusted) unemployment rate continues to trend downward to 6.82 (percent) in September and 6.55 (percent) in October, notably lower than the state and the nation (both 7.0 percent …).” DeKalb County’s unemployment rate dropped 0.3 of a percentage point to 7.1 percent in September, then fell again to 6.7 percent in October. LaGrange County’s unemployment rate fell 0.5 of a percentage point to 5.7 percent in September, before rising to 5.9 percent in October. Noble County’s unemployment rate dropped 0.6 of a percentage point in September to 6.7 percent, and rose slightly to 6.8 percent in October. Steuben County’s unemployment rate fell 0.7 of a percentage point in September to 6.8 percent, then rose to 6.9 percent in October. SEE UNEMPLOYMENT, PAGE A7

Northeast Indiana’s economy has $1.2 billion more in personal income circulating than at this time last year, a new report says. The U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis released 2012 per capita personal income numbers this week. It said northeast Indiana is outpacing the nation by showing a 5 percent growth rate, compared to the national rate of 3.4 percent. The Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership is tracking per capita personal income. It said in
2009, per capita income in northeast Indiana was 79 percent of the national average. Today, northeast Indiana has improved to 81.2 per of the U.S. average. Northeast Indiana’s figure is $35,509; the U.S. average is $43,735. For the past several decades, per capita personal income in Northeast Indiana has been declining relative to the nation, but that trend has been effectively reversed in the past three years, the partnership said. “Reversing this downward trend in per capita
income is a great affirmation of our collaborative efforts here in the region,” said John Sampson, president and CEO of the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership. “We are on the right track and making visible progress, but there is still much work to be done. We must continue to gain ground and close the gap to become the top global competitor we know this region can be.” The partnership tracks its 10 member counties: Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wabash, Wells and Whitley.
Dallas, JFK ‘linked in tragedy’ DALLAS (AP) — It was the same time, 12:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 22. It was the same place, downtown Dallas. But 50 years later, the thousands of people who filled Dealey Plaza weren’t there to cheer but to remember in quiet sadness the young, handsome president with whom Dallas will always be “linked in tragedy.” The solemn ceremony presided over by Mayor Mike Rawlings was the first time the city had organized an official Kennedy anniversary event, issuing 5,000 free tickets and erecting a stage with video screens. Somber remembrances extended from Dallas to the shores of Cape Cod, with moments of silence, speeches by historians and, above all, simple reverence for a time and a leader long gone. “We watched the nightmarish reality in our front yard,” Rawlings told the crowd, which assembled just steps from the Texas School Book Depository building where Lee Harvey Oswald fired from the sixth floor at Kennedy’s open-top limousine. “Our president had been taken from us, taken from his family, taken from the world.” SEE DALLAS, PAGE A7

Northern Lakes deficiency-free BY JENNIFER DECKER email@example.com
ANGOLA — Northern Lakes Nursing & Rehabilitation Center has received the rare distinction of earning a perfect survey score from the Indiana Department of Health. The score signified the private nursing home ran by Angola Healthcare, 516 N. Williams St., had zero deficiencies on a survey. Bridget McShane, Northern Lakes nursing liaison, said that top score is quite an accomplishment, as only 9.2 percent of some 15,674 nursing facilities in the nation accomplished that.
“Our survey process was completed Nov. 7 and is required by Medicare and Medicaid to keep our license current,” she said. “This is the first time” receiving the perfect score. McShane said all certified nursing homes receive an annual survey visit from the Indiana Department of Health making sure the facilities are compliant with state and federal regulations. “I think it’s a re-assurance for what all our hardworking staff does everyday in providing quality care in short-term rehabilitation,” she said. “It’s a wonderful accomplishment.”
Northern Lakes has operated for more than 30 years. It has more than 100 employees. The center offers post-hospital, orthopedic rehabilitation and stroke recovery through one-on-one physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapies. It also offers long-term nursing service, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, short-term respite and hospice care. Northern Lakes was honored by U.S. News & World Report’s Best Nursing Homes 2011 and has been rated a five-star facility by the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services.

The students were recently honored by hospital staff and Principal Barbara Weber. “Our employees and friends look forward to seeing the cards each year,” said Burns. All finalists’ artwork will be displayed in the main lobby of the hospital during December.
The arrest warrant was the result of a sheriff’s department investigation into allegations Tribble had not been living at his Tribble registered address. Tribble is also wanted out of Steuben County for a probation violation.

FORT WAYNE (AP) — About 30 stores remain closed at Glenbrook Square Mall three weeks after a water main break dampened floors and soaked carpets in much of the building. Allen County building commissioner David Fuller says the repair work at the mall has turned out to be a bigger job than expected at the 57 damaged stores. Fuller told WANE-TV that many contractors have been working nights and weekends to complete repairs. Mall manager Brian Cote said he anticipates all stores will be open next week.

Thieves cut hair from horses’ tails PLAINFIELD — Hendricks County police say someone is snipping the tails of horses. Lt.

Horse hair is a soughtafter commodity, Yetter said, for numerous uses.
INDIANAPOLIS — An Angola beauty will be on stage today among the glitter and glamour of the Miss Metropolitan Outstanding Teen contest. Daisy Dallas, an Angola High School junior and last year’s Miss Northeast Outstanding Teen, is competing against other teens at the Indiana Historical Society in Indianapolis. Participants are between 17 and 24 years old, and are vying in a competition that could ultimately take them to Miss America in Las Vegas. Earlier this month, Dallas was second runner-up in the Miss Indiana Dallas Teen USA competition in Carmel. In 2012 in Ohio, she was in a competition hosted by Nexstar, placing second in the nation in the teen solo division. Last year, Dallas was crowned Miss Northeast’s Outstanding Teen, winning the title for the Steuben and DeKalb County based local. The year before that, she held the title of Miss Three Rivers Festival Outstanding Teen. Kylie Wheeler of Georgetown is this year’s Miss Outstanding Teen in Indiana. The 2014 contest will be held June 18-21 in Zionsville. The competition includes talent, scholarship and platform. Dallas is a dancer, and today she is doing a jazz routine choreographed by herself and her mother, Tricia, to a song from “The Great Gatsby.” “We made it up in our living room in about 20 minutes,” said Dallas, who said she keeps in shape throughout the year through dancing and other activities, including horseback riding. She is the president of the Steuben County 4-H Horse and Pony club and reporter for the AHS Future Farmers of America. She is also on the National Honor Society and involved in SWARM, a peer mentoring program at the high school and AHS’ budding show choir. Her platform is helping those with juvenile arthritis, and she has taken donations to and visited Riley Hospital for Children in Fort Wayne. “It opens up your heart,” Dallas said.

Briefs • Son of drug lord arrested at border SAN DIEGO (AP) — The son of one of the world’s most-wanted drug lords was arrested at an Arizona border crossing to face drug-trafficking charges in the United States, authorities said Friday. Serafin Zambada, 23, was arrested Wednesday afternoon while crossing the border from Mexico in Nogales, Ariz., accompanied by his wife in a pedestrian lane, said Kelly Thornton, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office in San Diego. The wife was detained and released, Thornton said. Zambada’s father is Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, who survived decades of turf wars and rose to the top of Mexico’s underworld through savvy deal-brokering. Ismael Zambada is considered the strategist of Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel, more involved in daily operations than his betterknown boss, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. Serafin Zambada, a U.S. citizen, was scheduled to appear before a federal judge in Tucson, Ariz., on Monday to determine if he is eligible for bail. Prosecutors plan to ask that he be sent to San Diego to face federal charges of conspiracy to import methamphetamine and cocaine, and criminal forfeiture.
Doctor who aided in bin Laden capture faces murder charge PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — A Pakistani doctor who helped the CIA find Osama bin Laden has been charged with murder over a 2006 surgery he performed, his lawyer said Friday, raising new doubts whether the physician will regain his freedom. Shakil Afridi already is being held in prison pending retrial on a separate charge, despite U.S. officials demanding he be released. The case has caused friction between Pakistan and the U.S., complicating a relationship that Washington views as vital for fighting the Taliban and al-Qaida, as well as negotiating an end to the war in neighboring Afghanistan. The murder charge stems from a complaint over a teenage boy who died after Afridi performed surgery on him for appendicitis in 2006. The complaint, filed by the deceased teenage boy’s mother, Nasib Gula, says Afridi was not authorized to operate on her son because he was a physician, not a surgeon.
People • Vaughn’s latest movie effort more family-friendly LOS ANGELES (AP) — In the new movie “Delivery Man,” Vince Vaughn plays a sperm donor who learns he’s fathered more than 500 kids. In the past, that kind of scenario Vaughn might have been the set up for a film with adult humor, given the actor’s portfolio. But “Delivery Man” is decidedly familyfriendly fare, and reflects the stage of life where the 43-year-old married father of two finds himself these days. “I think that this is a whole other level, in that the movie, in a real non-sentimental way, takes you on a journey. That is a little bit about family, sure — connection,” he said in a recent interview. “But also I think a little bit about accepting yourself, forgiving yourself. Being open to being who are, and having people accept you and interact with you, whatever that may be.”

Kerry, other top officials Afghan leader joining nuclear discussion refuses security GENEVA (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry and foreign ministers of other major powers lent their weight to the Iran nuclear talks after envoys reported progress Friday in marathon negotiations to curb the Iranian program in return for limited sanctions relief. After a third day of talks, State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said Kerry was en route to Geneva to “help narrow the differences.” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov arrived in Geneva late Friday. British Foreign Secretary William Hague announced he would also travel to Geneva. A French diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information, said French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius would join the others here. The announcements followed a day in which diplomats appeared more and more optimistic that a deal could be struck. As talks adjourned, a diplomat said Iranian Foreign Minister and top European Union diplomat Catherine Ashton had made progress on a key sticking point — Iran’s claim to a right to produce nuclear fuel through uranium enrichment Iran’s official IRNA news agency quoted Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi in Geneva as saying that Iran’s right to uranium enrichment must be

The Obama administration has said it will pull all its forces out of Afghanistan without a security deal, as it did when Iraq failed to sign a similar agreement. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called Karzai on Friday and warned that “further delay is not practical, nor is it tenable,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. “Failure to conclude (the deal) … would be seen as a signal to the world that Afghanistan is not committed to a partnership with its supporters and that it is willing to jeopardize all of the financial and practical help that has been offered,” Psaki said. The U.S. invaded Afghanistan following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to go after al-Qaida, which was being sheltered by the Taliban. The longest and costliest war in U.S. history has proven deeply unpopular at home and among its allies, who also have said they will not commit any troops after 2014 unless the security deal is signed. The exit of all foreign forces would jeopardize the more than $8 billion that has been pledged annually to fund Afghan security forces and help with the country’s development.
S&P 500 has first finish at more than 1,800 BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
The stock market brushed past another milestone on Friday. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index closed above 1,800 for the first time, capping seven straight weeks of gains. The broader index is on track for its best performance in 15 years as a combination of solid corporate earnings, a strengthening economy and easy-money policies from the Federal Reserve draw investors to stocks. Stocks have also gained because they offer an attractive alternative to bonds, where interest rates remain close to all-time lows. “You can’t really get better returns other than in the stock market,” said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Rockwell Global Capital. “It’s been a quality run-up in stocks.” The S&P 500 index rose 8.91 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,804.76. The index has advanced 26.5 percent in 2013. If it finishes at that level, it would be its strongest year since a 26.7 percent gain in 1998.
The Dow Jones industrial average also continued its upward march after finishing above 16,000 for the first time Thursday. The index gained 54.78 points, or 0.3 percent, to 16,064.77. The Nasdaq composite rose 22.49 points, or 0.6 percent, to 3,991.65. On Friday, health care stocks led the market’s rise. Biotechnology company Biogen Idec surged on reports that it won market exclusivity for its top-selling multiple sclerosis drug in Europe. The company’s stock jumped $33.19, or 13 percent, to $285.62. Health care stocks have also led gains in the S&P 500 this year, rising 38 percent. The industry is attractive to investors. Some of its companies, like Biogen Idec, offer the possibility of explosive growth. Others are established players like Pfizer, which pays big dividends.

NEW YORK (AP) — Airline passengers have already been stripped of their legroom, hot meals and personal space. Now, they might also lose their silence. The Federal Communications Commission is considering lifting its longtime prohibition on making cellphone calls on airplanes, saying it is time “to review our outdated and restrictive rules.” But for many passengers, that would mean the elimination of one of the last sanctuaries from our hyper-connected world. Everybody wants the ability to stay connected while traveling, but nobody wants to be trapped next to some guy yapping away during the entire trip from New York to Las Vegas. “The only way I’d be in favor of this is if the FCC mandated that all those who want to use their cellphones
must sit next to families with screaming children,” said frequent flier Joe Winogradoff. Amtrak and many local commuter railways have created quiet cars for those who don’t want to be trapped next to a loud talker. It’s not hard to envision airlines offering “quiet rows,” although there will probably be an extra fee to sit there. Hopefully, they’ll be more effective than the old smoking and non-smoking sections. One flight attendant union has already come out against any change, saying that a plane full of chattering passengers could lead to arguments and undermine safety. Passenger Kai Xu had another concern: What’s going to happen to the already limited bathrooms on the plane?

Kevin Hyland, head of the Metropolitan Police’s human trafficking unit speaks to the media outside New Scotland Yard’s headquarters in London in this image taken from TV Thursday Nov. 21, 2013. London police say three women were held for at least 30 years against their will in a south London home.
UK police: Three women were ‘slaves’ LONDON (AP) — Three women who were freed from a London home after 30 years had been allowed outside in “carefully controlled circumstances” during their ordeal but were victims of “slavery, in simple terms,” a senior British police officer said Friday. Commander Steve Rodhouse described a “complicated and disturbing picture of emotional control over many years” in the case of the women, declining to say how they wound up in the south London home. Two suspects, a man and a woman, were arrested early Thursday on suspicion of forced labor and domestic servitude. He said investigators are trying to figure out “what were the invisible handcuffs that were used” to exert such control for the 30 years the women were allegedly held captive and subject to physical, mental and emotional abuse. “It is not as brutally obvious as women being physically restrained inside
Evolution debate engulfs Texas board of education AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Long-simmering ideological objections to teaching evolution in Texas boiled over at a late-night meeting, as the Board of Education extended preliminary approval of new science textbooks but held up one biology tome because of alleged factual errors. With midnight looming, some board members on Thursday singled out a textbook by Pearson Education, one of America’s largest publishers. They voiced questions about the book’s assertions on natural selection, noting that the theory of evolution is only part of the explanation for how life developed on Earth. After a lengthy — sometimes testy — debate, the board voted to have three of its members pick a trio of outside

experts to scrutinize the book. If the issues can be resolved in the coming weeks, it will win approval. If not, the book will be returned to the board for consideration at its January meeting. What Texas decides is important nationally since it is so large that many books prepared for publication in the state also are marketed elsewhere around the country. Textbook and classroom curriculum battles have long raged in Texas pitting creationists — those who see God’s hand in the creation of the universe — against academics who worry about religious and political ideology trumping scientific fact. At issue this time are proposed high school textbooks that could be used statewide starting next school year and through 2022.

an address and not being allowed to leave,” Rodhouse said. “This may have appeared to be a normal family.” The disclosure Thursday that a 69-year-old Malaysian, a 57-year-old Irish woman and a 30-yearold Briton were freed after apparently spending 30 years in captivity prompted a flurry of speculation and questions about how such a tragedy escaped notice for so long. The arrests were made after the Irish woman phoned a charity last month to say she was being held against her will along with two others. The charity engaged in a series of secretive conversations with the women and contacted police. Two of the women eventually left the house, and police rescued the third. The case has sent shockwaves throughout Britain and around the world, but is the latest horrifying case of a broader phenomenon that officials warn is still happening — and on the rise.

War on the little guy Marty the Magician performed magic tricks for kids, including the traditional rabbit-out-ofa-hat. Then one day: “I was signing autographs and taking pictures with children and their parents,” he told me. “Suddenly, a badge was thrown into the mix, and an inspector said, ‘Let me see your license.’” In “Harry Potter” books, a creepy Ministry of Magic controls young wizards. Now in the USA, government regulates stage magicians — one of the countless ways it makes life harder for the little JOHN guy. Marty’s torment didn’t end STOSSEL with a demand for his license. “She said, from now on, you cannot use your rabbit until you fill out paperwork, pay the $40 license fee. We’ll have to inspect your home.” Ten times since, regulators showed up unannounced at Marty’s house. At one point, an inspector he hadn’t seen before appeared. He hoped things had Tour guides must pay changed for the better. about $200 for criminal “I got a background checks, new inspector and I said, oh, provide four personal did my first references, show one retire? She said, passport photos and ‘No, good news! We’ve pass a written test — a increased our difficult one. budget and we have more inspectors now. So we’ll be able to visit you more often.’” Here are your tax dollars at work. The inspectors told Marty that the Animal Welfare Act required him to file paperwork demonstrating that he had “a comprehensive written disaster plan detailing everything I would do with my rabbit in the event of a fire, a flood, a tornado, an ice storm.” The federal forms list “common emergencies likely to happen to your facility … not necessarily limited to: structural fire, electrical outage, disruption in clean water or feed supply, disruption in access to facility (e.g., road closures), intentional attack on the facilities … earthquake, landslide/mudslide/ avalanche … “ Sadly, this Kafkaesque enforcement of petty rules is not a bizarre exception. Some regulation is useful. But when we passively accept government regulation of everything, thinking we’re protecting people from evil corporations run amok, we’re really making life harder for ordinary people. Every profession, from cab driving to floral arrangement, is now burdened with complex rules. You can’t even give tours of Washington, D.C., the city that produces most of these insane rules, without getting a special license. Tour guides must pay about $200 for criminal background checks, provide four personal references, show passport photos and pass a written test — a difficult one. People who reflexively defend government may feel no pity for businesses that face extra costs: Let businesses pay fees and take tests — we don’t want unlicensed tour guides describing famous statues incorrectly! But these costs add up. Often, they make a small, barely profitable business impossible to operate. These rules also violate Americans’ right to free speech. They are unnecessary. If tour guides are no good, people can patronize others. The government doesn’t need to be gatekeeper. These rules generally prevail because existing businesses are politically connected. They capture licensing boards and use license rules to crush competition from businesses just getting started. In some places, you can’t open a business like a limo service or moving van company unless you can prove that your business is needed and won’t undermine existing businesses in the same field. But undermining competition is the whole idea. If Starbucks or Home Depot had to prove new coffee shops and hardware stores were “needed,” we wouldn’t have those companies. Apparently they were needed, since these companies thrived, but no one could have “proven” that beforehand. Jeff Rowes, an attorney at the Institute for Justice, a civil liberties group that defends many people caught up in regulatory cases, says, “America was conceived as a sea of liberty with islands of government power. We’re now a sea of government power with ever-shrinking islands of liberty.” The little guys don’t have an army of lawyers to defend those islands of liberty one regulatory battle at a time. We should get rid of most of these regulations — and sail back, together, to a free country.

Letter To The Editor • Veterans wreath project succeeds To the editor: It is with pride that I can report that this year’s drive for wreaths for the veterans’ graves at Marion, Ind., has been a success. We now have almost 1,200 wreaths, 400 more than last year, to place on the graves of deceased veterans at Marion. These wreaths will be placed on Dec. 14 at noon at the Marion National Cemetery. Everyone is invited to attend and encour-
aged to attend. Although we exceeded last year’s count by almost 400, it is still not enough. There are more than 10,000 graves at Marion, and with only 1,200 graves having wreaths, it still looks sparse. We continue to encourage everyone’s participation in this wreath project. A mere $15 will buy a wreath for a grave; however, a $30 contribution will purchase three wreaths. The ceremony at Marion National Cemetery on Dec. 14 at noon is an enlightening ceremony honoring the veterans who
have passed. There will be a guest speaker as well as the laying of the wreaths. Everyone in attendance is encouraged to take wreaths and place them on graves. If you have a friend or a loved one, you may place a wreath on their grave at the cemetery. Once again, I would like to thank all those in this community who have contributed to the wreath project and further encourage others to participate. Thank you. Hugh N. Taylor Waterloo

Class, but not least — from the dollar store For Steve’s birthday, it was decided that no one could give him a gift that cost over a dollar. Not that we don’t like Steve, or that he isn’t worth more than a dollar, or that we’re extremely cheap (well, it could be that). It’s just that as grown-ups, who needs more stuff? I run into more and more people who say they are “downsizing.” They’re tired of dusting and polishing. They would rather put their feet up and watch something on Netflix. If they don’t want to buy new things, giving them new things is not what they want, either. Plus, expensive gifts can actually create unhappiness. Who hasn’t gotten some hideous geegaw from a close friend that you have to put on display so you won’t offend the gift-giver? How many times have we all said “Oh, you shouldn’t have,” and meant it — but not as a compliment? I’m starting to think that it won’t be long before guests at adults’ birthday parties will be asked not to bring anything, and also to take something home with them when
they leave. They say you can’t buy happiness, but by limiting every gift to a single dollar, we did buy ourselves a good time, even if we didn’t reach total and complete oneness with the universe. Steve, who camouflages his baldness by shaving his head, laughed when JIM large Kelly gave him gift set of 10 MULLEN adifferent combs. Brad got him a marijuana testing kit, something sure to come in handy. Jane gave him one of those dollar picture frames that comes with a creepy, dated family portrait which you are supposed to remove and replace with your own creepy, dated family portrait. She’d taken out the store’s picture and wrote, “Happy Birthday Steve, from your secret other family” and put it back in the frame. He said
“Oh, you shouldn’t have,” and we could all tell he really meant it. Most of the presents came from one of those stores that sell everything for a dollar. If they’re making money by selling stuff for a dollar, can you imagine how much they’re paying for it — 50 cents? A quarter? A penny? Imagine how much money the stores that sell similar stuff for $5 and $7 are making. After Steve had opened all his presents — A Darth Vader Pez dispenser, a Justin Bieber bobblehead doll, way out-of-date candy, a “Duck Dynasty” chia plant — and things got seriously cakey, someone asked, “Why doesn’t everyone shop at a dollar store?” Why would you ever pay five or 10 dollars for something they were selling for a dollar? When I was shopping for Steve, the dollar store was selling 80 envelopes for one dollar, when I had just bought a box of 100 envelopes at an office supply store for $7.99. Do the math — multiply by 7, take the square root of 3, divide by 4, change to base 8, carry the 6 and — oh yeah, I could pay
almost $64 for 800 envelopes or I could pay $10 dollars for 800 of the same envelopes. Decisions, decisions. And yet you’d think that the office supply place would offer the better deal, seeing as that’s their business. They buy in volume so they can pass the gouging along to you, the envelope-buying sucker. Steve said that some people would rather spend more on everyday products because it’s classier. That was when we came up with the most brilliant idea in the history of capitalism. We would open a chain of Two Dollar Stores right next door to every dollar store. We would sell almost the same stuff as a dollar store, but everything would cost twice as much and therefore have twice the class and we’d make twice as much money. We’d make a fortune. Until someone opened a Three Dollar Store next to us. JIM MULLEN is a syndicated columnist with Newspaper Enterprise Association. He can be contacted at JimMullenBooks.com.

I feel thankfulness in my heart BY LEIGH MORAN
As I pray, tears fill my eyes. I am not quoting scripture before I write today. I just want whatever God puts upon my heart to pour forth out from my soul. I just came inside from helping my neighbors down the street, Martha, Roy, their son Diego and my hubby pick some apples from our trees. We wanted to share with them. Since I am really allergic to apples they are going to waste. I am thankful for Martha, Roy, Diego and their daughter Bethany, that they are in our lives. Seeing my friends walking up the street to our house, seeing my hubby out filling a bucket full of apples, to take to work to give to his friend who feeds deer on his little farm, brings much joy to my soul. I am thankful for the abundance of these apples we can share. Getting hugs from my friend Martha and then coming inside to the toasty fire in our wood/pellet stove fills me with a soothing peacefulness. I am thankful for this peacefulness of joy and warmth. As I start to type I hear this little voice of a soft “Meow” and that is my Daniel. He jumps off of his cat tree and meanders over to me and wants to sit next to me in the other chair. I am filled with thankfulness for his love. His love fills me with a thankfulness to God, because you see, God really directed us to these little kittens five years ago. Daniel has been a little ill for awhile and God
has healed Daniel. Isaiah, Daniel’s brother, really did miss Daniel when Daniel stayed at the vet’s office for a few days. Daniel is extremely faithful to me and wants to be where I am. Isaiah and William, our older kitty, also wants to be close, but in different ways. I am thankful we were able to give William a home when my Mama went home to Heaven. Last Thursday as I was driving home from doing errands I was at a stoplight, in the right turn lane of four lanes of traffic. I heard a siren and looked in my rearview mirror and saw a police car traveling toward me at a high rate of speed. I moved over to the curb, as close as I could. The cars that had the right-a-way coming from the left just kept on coming. There were at least six cars that did not even attempt to stop. The police officer had to come to a sudden halt and interrupt his call because those six vehicles were driven by “stupid” humans. Given the right circumstances, had the officer not been able to stop, he would surely have hit the last red car, which I know would have struck me on the driver’s side. It was not my time or the officer’s or the red car driver’s time. I am thankful because, somehow, no one was hurt. So as I dwell on life, today, yesterday, past, and even future I feel deep within my very being that we must talk to God, listen to God, worship God, love our brothers and sisters, our animal companions, our enemies, and our whole
world and be THANKFUL FOR ALL GOD GIVES TO US. We must always remember and be thankful for the wonderful blessings God grants us. We must be thankful that God saves us by grace. We need to feel the joy of each moment in life. Life is full of ups and downs, that is for sure. There is so much corruption, pain, sorrow and hate in this world. However, we must look for and show others the love and beauty that is in every moment of life as well. It is our job to reach out, not by words, but by action, the love God gives to each of us. We cannot just preach, for what good does that do if we do not show others how thankful we are for what God has done in our lives? We need to share that feeling of no matter where we are in life, there still is joy to be found. Maybe that joy is only in a smile you give to someone. Maybe that joy is only in offering a small bit of food, water, clean clothing, or anything you know someone might need. This Thanksgiving do not just have a wonderful meal with your family and friends, but remember there are those who have no family or friends. Invite someone that needs some love! Blessed Thanksgiving to you and yours and whomever else you can invite into your home and your hearts. LEIGH MORAN received the
Call to Service Award from President George W. Bush.

Day of prayer on Wednesday ANGOLA — A Day of National Repentence and Prayer will be observed on Wednesday at 7 p.m. The Angola Christian Church, 1297 N. C.R. 200W, encourages all area congregations to join it in observing the day of prayer. Those advocating the special event ask believers appeal to God with: • Prayers of repentance for personal sins and disobedience.
• Prayers of national repentance for disobeying the clear teaching of scripture, for calling good what God has called sin and for fostering an attitude of selfishness and greed rather than service to others. • Thanks for the Lord’s benevolence to the United States of America. • A renewed commitment to follow the teaching of God as revealed in the
Bible, and to teach them to children. “We pray that this effort will prompt a nationwide return to righteous living and brotherly love,” said a news release from Pastor John Coney. “May God bring restoration to the United States of America, that we can live in peace and prosperity and can turn our attention to helping the hurting peoples of the world.”

Always remember to be thankful BY TRACEY ZIMMERMAN
What are we TRULY thankful for? Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise; be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good. Psalm 100:4, 5a I heard something on the radio this month that has just been rattling around in my brain. The question announced went like this: “If you woke up tomorrow with only the things you thanked God for today, what would that look like?” Stop the bus! If I could only have tomorrow what I thanked God for today? Whoa! I might need to revisit what I am thankful for. You see the word “thanksgiving” is defined as: the expression of gratitude especially to God. You see we are wired to be thankful. I believe it is our sinful nature that we deviate from that. An example I used recently in worship was this; stop looking at the glass as half full or half empty and start being
Youth Blogs • thankful for the water or the glass. Too many times, we just see things as a negative. You will hear a lot of people complaining about the weather in the next several months. Instead of complaining maybe we should be thankful for the promise of spring that is just around the corner. Maybe we should be thankful for the rest that the ground takes and then comes to life again in the summer. I am blessed. I have a warm home, a car to drive, children I love, a wonderful man to spend my days with, and more importantly I have a Heavenly Father that I am lucky to have love me even when I am at my ugliest inside and out. I am thankful that He loves me so much He made a way for me to be in personal relationship with Him knowing I would stumble and fall, yet loving me anyway. That is something to be
thankful for. I have spent the month, every day, posting on Facebook something I am thankful for. Why should this just be a November event? What would our lives look like if we took time every day to be thankful for something and started looking for those things to be thankful for that surround us? The Lord is good, His love does endure forever, and every day there is something to praise Him about. Let’s do that more than for a month or a special day in November, let’s be thankful all year for our Father in Heaven. Dear loving and amazing father — We are thankful for you today, tomorrow and forever. Thank you for those things that you give to us that we do not even take notice of. Help us to be joyful every day and not just the days that we see our blessings clearly. PASTOR TRACEY ZIMMERMAN

Court reverses robo-calls ruling INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A federal appeals court has reversed a district judge’s ruling that Indiana’s ban on political robo-calls covers only in-state telephone calls because federal law doesn’t allow such limitations. The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago ruled Thursday that the federal Telephone Consumer
Protection Act “says nothing about pre-empting laws that regulate the interstate use of automatic dialing systems. Therefore, we must conclude they are not pre-empted.” That reversed a ruling two years ago by U.S. District Judge William Lawrence in Indianapolis. The appeals court sent the case back to
the district court to determine whether Indiana’s law violates First Amendment free-speech rights. Patriotic Veterans Inc. filed a lawsuit in 2010 challenging a state law that prohibits using automatically dialed phone calls to deliver a prerecorded message unless consumers have given consent.
Voyles questioned Huq about the circumstances relating to the crime to establish probable cause. Huq admitted stabbing Kelley to death in a fight at Kelley’s home. After the murder, Huq said, he went to the Reddington Heights home where he lived with his parents. “I got ready for work,” Huq said. He went to work, but left before his shift was complete, driving his car with a blood-stained interior. “I went to Chicago,” Huq said. From there, he said, he went to Canada. He abandoned his car and caught a flight to Bangladesh. He lived in his family’s native country until he was arrested while making a trip to New Delhi in February 2011. During his 20 years on the lam, the case remained open. It was aired on an episode of “America’s Most Wanted,” the story of a love triangle turned deadly. Huq admitted he killed Kelley in an impassioned heat. Kelley had been dating the same girl as Huq — Christine Mutzfeld. Huq went to Kelley’s house that night and waited until Mutzfeld left during the early morning hours. After he went to the door and was let in by Kelley, he said, a fight ensued. The blood in the car, Huq said, was his. He said he also was stabbed in the ordeal. Huq said it was Kelley who introduced the murder weapon — a knife. Huq said he’d met Kelley through Mutzfeld’s brother and learned both were dating Mutzfeld. Huq went to Kelley’s home on July 25, 1989, prompting the filing of a felony count of intimidation against Huq, who allegedly threatened

another country.” Huq — who had been living in Bangladesh under the assumed name of Asif ul Huq — spent a couple of years in a prison in New Delhi during international extradition proceedings. Voyles said the state agreed to give Huq credit for that time served. If Fee accepts the plea agreement, the maximum amount of time Huq would spend in prison with Indiana good-time credit would be around 17 years. The murder charge carried up to 65 years in prison. In addition, Huq faced up to three years for Class D felony intimidation. A burglary case also is pending against Huq, filed Feb. 2, 1989. In that case, Huq is facing six counts — three counts of Class C felony burglary and three counts of Class D felony theft — from three separate incidents in Steuben County. Huq allegedly assisted twice in stealing large amounts of cash from his place of employment and also in a jewelry heist from one of his parents’ friends’ homes. Those charges would also be dismissed as part of the plea deal. If combined, the charges pending in the burglary case carried up to 33 years in prison. The sentencing date, April 4, 2014, is one year from another high-profile sentencing on April 5 of this year — that of Zao Garth Burrell of Angola, who Fee sentenced to 105 years in prison for murder, attempted murder and carrying a handgun without a license.

to kill Kelley if the dating continued. In court Friday, Huq said he and Kelley agreed they would discuss the issue with Mutzfeld. That conversation never happened, and on Aug. 9, 1989, Huq said he went to Kelley’s house around 10 p.m. “to confront Christine Mutzfeld as was planned by Mr. Kelley and myself.” Mutzfeld was not there, and Huq left. When he returned, her vehicle was in Kelley’s driveway, and Huq lay in wait until she left, court documents say. Voluntary manslaughter is a Class A felony and carries a maximum sentence of 50 years. The plea agreement reached between Huq and the Steuben County Prosecutor’s Office calls for a maximum executed sentence of 40 years. Up to 10 years of probation could be added at the judge’s discretion. Fee took the plea agreement under advisement and will determine whether to accept or reject it at the sentencing hearing in April. If he rejects the plea bargain, Huq’s cases would return to the dockets and be set for jury trials. A trial scheduled in the murder case for Dec. 9-13 in Superior Court, was cancelled. If Fee accepts the plea, Huq’s defense team can argue for what it feels is the appropriate sentence. A couple of hours were set aside for the hearing, which may include testimony by family members from Bangladesh as well as feedback from the Kelley family, which could be called by the state. Voyles said there has been agreement from the prosecutor’s office as to the amount of time served already by Huq, “some of which was in
Unemployment in Allen County dropped 0.5 of a percentage point in October to 6.7 percent. All counties in Indiana are now below 10 percent unemployment; Fountain County leads the state with an unemployment rate of 9.8 percent. Steuben County was tied for 43rd in the monthly rankings. Labor force numbers were mixed over the two-month period, with the total labor force numbers rising in LaGrange County and falling in DeKalb County each month. Noble and Steuben counties each saw a slightly larger labor force in September before those numbers fell in October. The state unemployment rate has dropped by nearly 1 percentage point over the past three months to 7.5 percent. The Department of Workforce Development said it is the largest three-month drop in more than 20 years. The last time Indiana’s unemployment rate stood below 8 percent was November 2008. “Like every Hoosier, I welcome the news that Indiana’s unemployment rate has dropped to 7.5 percent,” said Gov. Mike Pence. “It is a testament to the resilience of the hard-working people of Indiana, the businesses of our state and the policies that we have been embracing during these difficult times.” Private-sector employment in Indiana grew by 6,600 jobs in October, with gains concentrated in the manufacturing, construction
and private educational and health services sectors, the DWD said. The state’s rate of private-sector growth — 8.4 percent — has continued to significantly outpace the national average since July 2009. “Indiana’s unemployment rate is more than 1 percentage point below where it was in January, which is definitely significant,” said Scott B. Sanders, commissioner of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. “The steady private-sector job growth the Hoosier State has been experiencing for some time now is finally beginning to be reflected in the unemployment rate, which many businesses and individuals rely on to make important economic decisions.” “Indiana’s pro-growth policies of fiscal responsibility, lower taxes and less red tape are giving Hoosier businesses the confidence to grow and attracting new investment and jobs to our state,” said Pence. “Our progress in education and workforce is attracting renewed interest in investment in Indiana.” Sanders noted the number of unemployed Hoosiers has decreased by more than 27,000 over the past three months, while Indiana’s labor force has grown by 6,000. Claims for unemployment insurance this year remain at their lowest levels since 2000. AN EARLY VERSION of this

DALLAS: ‘Hope and hatred collided’ on day of assassination FROM PAGE A1
Two generations later, the assassination still stirs quiet sadness in the baby boomers who remember it as the beginning of a darker, more cynical time. “A new era dawned and another waned a half-century ago, when hope and hatred collided right here in Dallas,” Rawlings told the crowd that gathered under gray skies and in near-freezing tempera-
tures. The mayor said the slaying prompted Dallas to “turn civic heartbreak into hard work” and helped the city mature into a more tolerant, welcoming metropolis. The slain president “and our city will forever be linked in tragedy, yes,” Rawlings said. “But out of tragedy, an opportunity was granted to us: how to face the future when it’s the darkest and uncertain.”

NEW YORK (AP) — When a Connecticut guard has a game in Madison Square Garden like Shabazz Napier did Friday night, there is only one name he can be compared to: Kemba Walker. Napier, who scored 27 points and dominated the 18th-ranked Huskies’ 59-58 victory over Indiana in the championship game of the 2K Sports Classic Benefiting Wounded Warrior Project, was more than happy to hear Walker’s name come up. “Of course I do,” said Napier, a key reserve on the 2011 national championship team that Walker starred on. “That’s my big brother. I try to emulate everything that he does.” While Walker, who plays for the Charlotte Bobcats, had an 11-game run for the ages when he led the Huskies to the Big East title and then the NCAA championship, Napier had a night that will be talked about for a while among the Connecticut faithful. “The fans love him and he loves the fans,” said Connecticut coach Kevin Ollie, a former standout guard for the Huskies himself. “He gave the folks from Storrs a good trip back home.” Napier’s driving basket with 1:34 left to play turned out to be the final points of the game. Indiana turned the ball over twice and Yogi Ferrell missed a jumper in that span. Napier missed a 3-pointer and was called for an offensive foul in the hectic finish that had the crowd at Madison Square Garden standing for the final 90 seconds. “He is an incredible high level guard,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said of the 6-foot-1 Napier. “That is a 12-, 13-year pro. I don’t care about size. He creates tremendous separation.” Indiana (5-1) had the last scoring chance. Ferrell missed a jumper with 10 seconds and the rebound rolled out of bounds in front of the Indiana bench off a Connecticut player. The clock showed .2 seconds and after the

LAGRANGE — The stunned look on the faces of the Prairie Heights players spoke volumes. “The wheels kind of fell off,” said Prairie Heights coach Jennifer Grabill, whose Panthers fell 51-49 at Lakeland on Friday. But it wasn’t what the Panthers did wrong in Friday’s NECC showdown, it was what the Lakers did right. “We never give up, we just don’t,” said Lakeland coach Sheila Moore. “It’s a huge win for us.” Lakeland’s Blake Mullett hit a jumper with five seconds remaining, then grabbed a steal to wrap up a stunning come-from-behind win for the Lakers. It was the second game in a row the team rallied from behind to win. The squad trailed in Tuesday’s game at Wawasee before forcing overtime and claiming a 37-33 win. “The Wawasee game, it gave us confidence we haven’t had in years going into a big conference game, and we knew we could win,” said Lakeland senior Abi Thompson, who finished Friday’s game with 20 points, five rebounds and three steals. Ashtin Kaminer added 10 points and had five steals for the Lakers. Lakeland also got scoring from Becca Levitz (6 points), Carlee Richardson (6), Mullett (4), Nicole McKibben (3) and Mackenzie Loy (2). Prairie Heights had a great effort from the senior duo of Shawna Carbine and Tressa Terry. Carbone finished with 20 points, 13 rebounds and three steals. “She did a good job, was aggressive, and does a nice job rebounding for us.” Terry had 18 points and three steals. The Panthers also got points from McKenzie Kain (4), Haley

officials watched the replay, they restored it to .7 seconds. Jeremy Hollowell inbounded the ball to Noah Vonleh, but his jumper was late and the Huskies (6-0) had the win. “We were looking to spread the court, play basketball. Don’t let them lock in and it just didn’t go,” Crean said of Ferrell’s jumper. On the final play he said they were looking for a lob or catch and shoot. “We didn’t get a great look. They challenged it,” Crean said. “You have to be dead on there.” Napier, the tournament MVP, was 10 of 14 from the field, including 4 of 6 from 3-point
range. He was the only doublefigure scorer for the Huskies, but he struggled from the free throw line (3 of 7) and had seven turnovers. Still, every big play down the stretch was his. “Sometimes my teammates let me know,” he said of taking over a game. “Not verbally but how they sometimes carry themselves. I know I have to try and score and be more aggressive. … I just go off the flow.” Ferrell, who was hounded all game by Napier, Ryan Boatright and Lasan Kromah, had 19 points on 6-of-19 shooting, 2 of 6 from beyond the arc, and he committed five of Indiana’s 19 turnovers.

Hornets catch fire to beat Blazers BY JEFF JONES firstname.lastname@example.org
BUTLER — On a night where neither team shot a great percentage, the Angola Hornets got hot at the right time, pulling away from the host Eastside Blazers for a 62-42 Northeast Corner Conference win Friday. The Hornets (2-2 overall, 2-0 in the NECC) led for all but a few moments, but saw the Blazers (0-2 overall, 0-1 in the NECC) whittle a 15-point lead to eight with 5:41 to play on Maddy Minehart’s free throw. That’s when the Hornets caught fire, embarking on a 13-0 run to put the game away. Alexis Scott’s two-pointer on the next Angola possession got the roll started. Abby Buchs hit two three-pointers, and Claire Grubb added a three of her own, plus a steal and bucket. Kaitlyn Brandt capped the run with a bucket with 3:17 to play, making it 57-34. Eastside couldn’t match that firepower, missing on four of its next possessions and turning the ball over
on two others. The Blazers finished 13-of-44 (30 percent) from the field and just 4-of-15 (27 percent) from three-point range. “We can score in a hurry when we settle down and run our offense, that’s for sure,” said Angola coach John Berger. “It was an ugly, ugly night, and Eastside did a good job of hanging in there. “They caused us to rush,” he said. “We weren’t clearing off the boards very well. They kept hanging around and hanging around. It was good to see us hit some shots in the fourth quarter.” Grubb led all scorers with 24 points. Abby Buchs also reached double figures with 11, while Scott and Tana Willibey chipped in with nine each. Minehart had 12 points to go with 17 rebounds to pace Eastside. Kaci Shook added 10 points. As the game wore on, Angola did a better job of getting second and third-chance opportunities, and made the most of them. While the Hornets were just 24-of-72 (33 $
percent) from the field and 9-of-28 (32 percent) from three-point range, those extra chances spelled doom for the Blazers. “You can’t let a team like that shoot (70-plus shots),” Eastside coach Shane Conwell said. “Eventually, they’re going to start knocking them down, and that’s what happened when they pulled away. “Being down less than 10 in the fourth quarter, I’ll take that improvement,” he said after his team lost its season-opening game 90-34 to East Noble Saturday. “I was proud of the way the girls came out from the get-go. “Maddy played well and Kaci was aggressive,” Conwell said. “We got to the free throw line 23 times, and I like that.” The Hornets led 26-17 at the break, and pushed their advantage to 36-21 following Grubb’s slashing drive to the basket with five minutes left in the third. The Blazers ran off the next five points late in the third, and outscored Angola 7-2 early in the

Shepard named Colts Academic All-Star
ANGOLA — A young Trine University wrestling team is looking to healthy first as this season gets started, then grow through its demanding schedule. “It will be a learning year. It will be a rough year. But I think we will be very competitive,” Thunder coach Dan Callahan said. “Overall, we’ll be a solid team after Christmas. “We won four duals last year, but sent three kids to nationals. We want to get ready for the end of the year,” he continued. “The kids I got have been working really hard. They’re learning and they’re getting better.” Trine is moving on after the graduations of three-time NCAA Division III All-American Elias Larson at 157 pounds and two-time national qualifier Ryan Pieper at 174. But it has dealt with some injuries for a team not as deep as it has been recently. Sophomore 157-pounder Jon Blanton suffered a season-ending shoulder injury. Callahan said on Wednesday that he was waiting for MRI results on a knee of 149-pound freshman starter Cody Konieczki. Sophomore and 125-pound starter Matt Frane and freshman Wes Cummings, who will start the season at 141, have just came back from concussions. Frane is a DeKalb High graduate. The Thunder does bring back junior Brandon Preston, a national qualifier at 125 last season while going 30-12. He will wrestle at 133 for the first time this season today at the Olivet Comet Duals after properly getting his weight down. He began the season wrestling at 141. Preston is ranked eighth in the country at 133 in the latest coaches’ individual rankings. “If he continues what he has been doing, I believe
INDIANAPOLIS — Prairie Heights senior Zach Shepard was recently named to the 2013 Indianapolis Colts Academic All-Star Team. The team was picked by position. Shepard was picked to the defensive team as a linebacker. He is one of 30 players statewide to be selected as Colts Academic All-Stars. Shepard and the rest of the Colts Academic All-Star team will be recognized on Dec. 1 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis when the Colts take on the Tennessee Titans. This is the 15th year the Colts have had an Academic All-Star football team in conjunction with the Indiana High School Athletic Association and the Indiana Football Coaches Association. Among the criteria is that the football players have to be in the top five percent of their class academically and have started in 70 percent of their games. Trine freshman quarterback Brandon Rooze from Benton Central High School was a Colts Academic All-Star last year. He started under center for the Thunder’s last two games this season.

Junior 133-pounder Brandon Preston, back, will lead a young Trine University wrestling team this season after
he will be an All-American,” Callahan said. “His biggest improvement is from a mental aspect. If his opponent got the first takedown before, he would be on his way to getting tech falled. He’s now doing an outstanding job of wrestling through those situations.” Callahan believes new assistant coach Rob Yahrmarkt will be valuable in Preston’s further development. Yahrmarkt was a four-year letterwinner at Olivet and had made assistant coaching stops at Mount Union (Ohio) and Ohio Northern. A couple of guys who have emerged are junior heavyweight Mack Green and 197-pound sophomore Michael Conner. Green was the heavyweight champion at the Trine Open last Saturday. Conner won the 197 title in the Ben McMullen Open at Muskegon (Mich.) Community College on Nov. 9. He wrestled at 184 last season, but was hampered by injuries. “Mack was a 197-pounder last year and

has just lifted like crazy. He is really powerful and has the ability to be an All-American,” Callahan said. “Conner has been our most consistent wrestler in the early part of the season. He is bigger and stronger. But it’s more about his confidence level.” The Thunder will be more competitive in the practice room from a heavyweight standpoint than they have been recently with freshman backups Matt Beard and Tyler Prater. Beard, an Eastside High graduate, is coming from playing football for the Thunder. Freshman Levi Graber is going to challenge Frane in
the practice room at 125. Another seasoned returner back for Trine is senior 174-pounder Shane Hendrickson. He was a heavyweight last season and will get down to proper weight last week. “He went down from 265 to 174 and is looking good,” Callahan said. “He is adjusting to a new style.” The rest of the Thunder lineup is filled with freshman starters with Adam Boles from Pittsboro now at 149 in place of Konieczki, Isaiah Hill of Columbus, Ohio, at 165; and Penn High School graduate Joey Stasiak at 184. The 157 spot will be vacant. Backups include Andre Gibbons at 174, freshman Russell Hazelet at 184 and junior Nick Fruits at 197. Hazelet played football at Trine this fall. Also at the Trine Open last Saturday, Preston placed fourth at 141. Conner reached the semifinals at 197, but did not place. “We saw some improvement from our kids,” Callahan said.
Angola’s Yagodinski a state finalist for Wendy’s High School Heisman Award There were five seniors who were school winners from Steuben County high schools for the 2013 Wendy’s High School Heisman Award. One of those school winners rose up a level to be a state finalist in Angola High School senior Victoria (Tori) Yagodinski. Yagodinski was one of 20 state finalists in Indiana. She just finished her prep volleyball career this past fall and earned All-Northeast Corner Conference honors. She used to play basketball for the Hornets and continues to achieve at a high level academically. Two other area seniors were state finalists in West Noble’s Kelsie Peterson and Lakeland’s Evan Garretson. The other Steuben school winners were Angola’s A.J. Hocker, Fremont’s Alivia Behnfeldt, Prairie Heights’ Tressa Terry and Hamilton’s Hailee Snyder. The state winners are Yorktown’s Chandler Carroll and Perry Meridian’s Casey Kieran. Carroll is one of 12 national finalists.
Middle School Basketball PH boys 7th 1-1 this week BRUSHY PRAIRIE — Prairie Heights Middle School’s seventh grade boys basketball team went 1-1 this week, winning at home to Garrett 28-25 and losing at Fairfield 42-19. On Thursday, the Panthers led by nine at halftime. But the Locomotives got withing two points with 19 seconds left. Heights’ Ryan Rasler grabbed an offensive rebound off a missed Panther free throw with eight seconds left to seal the victory for his team. Landry Gerbers was strong inside and lead Prairie Heights with 18 points. Rasler had six points. Garret Culler scored two. Layne Bachelor and Cameron Penick each had a point. On Tuesday, Gerbers had 14 points and Rasler had four for PH. Hans Franke had a point.

PANTHERS: Lakers played from behind all game long in victory FROM PAGE B1
Kleeberg (3), Saige Dunafin (2) and Alicia Beechy (2). Lakeland (3-1, 1-0 NECC) won its third in a row. The Lakers have victories over the Panthers, Bethany Christian and Wawasee. “I don’t know when the last time it was we were 3-1,” said a jubilant Moore. “And we were in the Goshen game, we could actually be 4-0.” The Panthers used a 12-0 second quarter run to pull away and looked to have the game solidly in hand. Lakeland never led after that until Mullett hit her shot with five seconds left. Lakeland led 13-9 when Terry struck with the opening score of the Panther run. Hurt by poor free throw shooting early in the contest, Heights suddenly couldn’t miss, with Carbone, McKenzie Kain and Haley Kleeberg each connecting on two attempts. Terry struck with a bucket in between the free throws and Carbone had a steal and score the ended the run, leaving Heights with a 21-13 lead. The Panthers led 27-17
at the half, then opened the third period with a bucket by Carbone and a quick steal and score from Terry, taking the Panther lead to 31-17 — a 14-point margin. The Lakers spent the rest of the game catching up. Back-to-back steals and scores by Thompson and Kaminer five minutes into the second half allowed Lakeland to close within eight, at 36-28. “Our defense is what sparked it,” Thompson said. Lakeland continued to cut into the Panthers lead and used an early fourth-quarter triple by McKibben and score in close by Richardson to pull within three with five minutes left. Finally, with just over a minute left the Lakers pulled even at 49-49 on a traditional three-point play by Thompson. After exchanging possessions, the Lakers wound up with the ball under their own basket with 11 seconds left. Mullett would score on an inbounds play, then reached in to make a steal as Heights attempted to inbound the ball.
BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Celtics played a sloppy second half and the Indiana Pacers made them pay. Down by eight points at halftime, the Pacers charged back for a 97-82 win Friday night behind 27 points from Paul George to improve the best record in the Eastern Conference. Indiana (11-1) trailed at halftime in nine of its games. Its latest comeback was helped by Boston’s 16 turnovers in the second half, leading to 23 points. “Our starters, as a unit, have a gear defensively that they can reach that’s pretty special,” Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. “They hit that in the third and took control of the game.” The Pacers shut down Jordan Crawford after he made all eight of his field goal attempts and scored 19 points in the first half. He finished with a season-high 24. “I think probably I was lackadaisical,” he said,
“disappointed in myself, didn’t complete the game.” Crawford committed six turnovers in the second half when Boston, which hit 59 percent of its shots in the first half, connected on just 40 percent. “We passed (the Pacers) the ball too much,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. “That probably had a lot to do with our shot selection.” Trailing 50-42 at halftime, Indiana outscored Boston 25-8 in the third quarter to take a 67-58 lead. It was the Celtics’ lowest scoring quarter of the season, worse than the 11 points they had in the second period of a 93-87 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Oct. 30. The Pacers kept rolling with a 30-24 fourth quarter. George had 22 points in the second half. “Whatever the circumstance is in the first half,” he said, halftime “is the time for us to re-evaluate what’s going on.”
ALBION — Fremont’s girls basketball team defeated Central Noble 38-33 in a Northeast Corner Conference game Friday night. The Eagles built a doubledigit lead at halftime and maintained it after three quarters at 30-18 going into the fourth in their NECC opener. Shae Rhonehouse had 17 points and Miranda White added 11 for Fremont (3-0, 1-0 NECC). Tiffany Simcox had 10 points and Kennedy Forker scored seven for the Cougars (0-3, 0-1). West Noble 66, Hamilton 31 In Ligonier, the Chargers (2-2, 1-1) led 18-2 after one quarter and 41-5 at halftime. Kelsie Peterson had 20 points to lead West Noble, and that included making 12-of-13 free throws. Becca Schermerhorn had 14 points and Taylor Fisher added nine. The Marines are 0-2, 0-2. COLLEGE MEN Manchester 67, Trine 61 At Kalamazoo College,
the Thunder cut a 12-point deficit with 7 minutes left down to two in the final minute. But the Spartans hung on to win. Trine (1-1) outrebounded Manchester 36-24. The Spartans shot 56 percent from the floor (24-43) and made all four of their free throws in the final 11 seconds to secure the win after getting a big offensive rebound on a missed front end of a one-and-one with 16 seconds left while leading 63-61. Chase Casteel, Blake Brouwer and Caleb Jackson had 10 points apiece for Manchester. Jared Holmquist had 15 points, 10 rebounds and two blocked shots to lead four Thunder scorers in double figures. Freshman Will Dixon had 14 points, five boards and three assists. Nick Tatu had 12 points on four three-pointers, and Tyler Good had 10 points and six rebounds.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Cardinals, Angels make trade ST. LOUIS (AP) — Former World Series MVP David Freese was traded by his hometown St. Louis Cardinals to the Los Angeles Angels in a four-player deal Friday that reunites Albert Pujols with a pair of ex-teammates. In a conference call with media, Freese said he got a welcoming text from Pujols and responded with a reference to the 2011 World Series: “Remember what we did the last time we played together? Let’s go try to do that again.” Freese didn’t think his drop-off in production last season had anything to do with the pressure of being the “hometown kid.” “Obviously, I’m a little sad closing this chapter, but I’m extremely pumped about joining the Angels,” Freese said. “If it was going to go down, I wanted it to happen on a team like the Angels.” St. Louis obtained a new starting center fielder in Peter Bourjos, plus outfield prospect Randal Grichuk. The Cardinals also sent reliever Fernando Salas to the Angels. “Overall, we just felt this was a very compelling deal to make,” Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said. Freese’s departure did not come as a surprise. “I definitely would look myself in the mirror and say, ‘Where am I going to be in March?’” Freese said. “I was ready to go anywhere. I’m excited to get this going.” The 30-year-old was the MVP of the 2011 NL championship series and the World Series, setting a major league record with 21 postseason RBIs and hitting a game-ending, 11th-inning home run in Game 6. Freese injured his back chasing a foul ball into the stands during spring training this year and never hit stride. He hit only .179 in this year’s postseason, going 3-for-19 (.158) with no RBIs in the six-game loss to Boston in the World Series. “David, growing up in St. Louis, this could not have been the easiest place to play,” Mozeliak said. “I do think he may be looking forward to a fresh start. This was not an easy year for him.”

While a high percentage of the nation’s corn crop was harvested by Nov. 17, some farmers waited until the end of the month to bring in their corn.
Expanding livestock production could add value to corn harvest WEST LAFAYETTE — An expanding livestock production sector could add value to corn in coming months — which is welcome news for Indiana growers. Many of the state’s producers saw corn and soybean prices fall in the wake of an EPA-proposed decrease in the Renewable Fuel Standard for 2014, Purdue Extension agricultural economist Chris Hurt says. The bad news for growers, however, is that it could take several months before the effects of expanding animal numbers translate to stronger crop demand. According to Hurt, the profit incentive for expansion of animal numbers is large and animal production was traditionally the way farms added value to abundant and cheap corn supplies. He used hogs as an example. For the 2013-2014 corn-marketing year, live hog prices should average about $67 per hundredweight with a cost of production around $56, he said. That translates to an approximate $32-per-head profit and increases the value of corn marketed through hogs. “For the current corn marketing year, hogs are offering an estimated $6.85 per bushel if the profits from hog production are assigned to the

value of corn,” Hurt said. “This compares to a U.S. Department of Agriculture-estimated price of $4.50 for corn producers. “Unfortunately, it takes time to get into hog production, and gilts retained now will not have marketready pigs until late 2014 when much of the profit incentive will be eroded.” Feed prices are expected to move into a period of moderation over the next several years, which means lower livestock production costs, and increases the likelihood that livestock producers will continue expansion. For hogs, specifically, an expected 1-3 percent breeding herd increase is already underway. Pork production increases should start to appear late in the summer of 2014, which likely will take hog prices down to $58 per hundredweight by late in 2014, Hurt said. “The big profits for hog producers will come during the 2013-2014 corn marketing year, reaching $37 per head of profits, on average, during the second and third quarters of 2014,” he said. “While hog prices are strong, it is really lower feed costs that are providing the strong profitability forecasts.” A growing hog industry, while
helpful in providing additional demand for corn, won’t be enough on its own to boost corn prices to previously high levels, Hurt said. “The hog industry expansion will not be large enough to return corn prices to the previous lofty levels; however, when all animal industries are included it will be a period of growing feed-use base for corn growers,” he said. “It’s anticipated that in coming years there will be a better balance between the crop production sector and the animal sector. “Assuming ethanol use is relatively level in the future, this means that corn farmers have achieved the goal of providing sufficient production for both food and fuel.” Hurt’s full report, “Hogs Provide Near $7 per Bushel Corn Value,” is available in both text and podcast formats via Farmdoc Daily from the University of Illinois at farmdocdaily.illinois.edu/2013/11/ hogs-near-7dollar-bushel-cornvalue.html. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Nov. 15 proposed reducing total production of biofuels in 2014 from the current legal mandate of 18.15 billion gallons to 15.21 billion.
Demand drives up price of soybean futures on CBT CHICAGO — On the Chicago Board of Trade this week, soybeans contracts for settlement in January rose 0.4 percent to $12.97 per bushel, which is the highest level for most actively traded futures for one week. Thursday, on the same Chicago Board of Trade, soybeans futures for settlement in January rose by 0.78% to $12.8438 per bushel. Prices held in range between day’s high and low of $12.8463 and $12.7563 per bushel respectively. According to data of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the nation’s export sales of soybeans jumped to 1.38 million metric tons in the week ended Nov. 14 — from 909,122 tons a week earlier and 84 percent of the total amount was bought by the world’s largest soybeans importer, China. The price of the soybeans decreased 8.2 percent this year, because of the estimates of USDA for record high global production, which is expected to reach an unprecedented 283.5 million tons at the end of the year. This is 2.2 million above last month’s forecast and 16.3 million tons above last year’s harvest. Meanwhile, earlier in the week soybeans were pressured after the U.S. Department of Agriculture said that American
As of Nov. 17, 91 percent of the nation’s soybean crop was collected, compared to the five-year average of 86 percent and last year’s 99 percent during the comparable period.
farmers had collected 95 percent of the crop as of Nov.17, near the five-year average of 96 percent and slightly below last year’s 98 percent during the comparable week.The USDA said on Monday that the U.S. harvest accelerated by seven percent last week and remained above the average. As of Nov.17, 91 percent of the crop was collected, compared to the five-year average of 86 percent and last year’s 99 percent during the comparable period. Corn and soybeans drew support on outlook for unfavorable weather in some
key growing areas. DTN reported on Nov. 20 that rainfall in the southern parts of the Midwest will cause delays to the final harvest stage in the end of the week, followed by cold and dry weather early next week which would ease field work. In Brazil, scattered thunderstorms will maintain soil moisture ample for early development of corn and soybeans but will also cause planting delays and some southern areas may see flooding, DTN said. The U.S. is the second largest exporter of soybeans in the world.

Teen knows cutting won’t end her pain DEAR ABBY: I am a 15-year-old girl. Recently I made a new friend, “Mandy,” and confided to her about my dark past of depression. When I explained how I used to cut myself, she burst into tears and told me she had cut herself the day before. I didn’t expect that response. I know from experience that what Mandy is doing is not a good way to handle things. What stopped me from cutting was getting a permanent scar from it. Although plenty of people told me that cutting was no way to deal with my pain, the only one I listened to in the end was myself. I really want Mandy to stop. I told her not to do it, but I’m afraid she will anyway. She’s an amazing person, and she doesn’t deserve the pain she is causing herself. How can I help her? — BEEN THERE

IN SAN FRANCISCO DEAR BEEN THERE: Continue encouraging your friend to stop cutting, but if she’s not able to, she may need professional help to quit. It is nothing to be ashamed of. DEAR A ABBY counselor at school might be able to help Jeanne Phillips if Mandy is willing to talk to one. But if she isn’t, then tell your mother about this so she can let Mandy’s mother know what’s going on. Cutting can be a sign of serious depression, and secrets of this kind are destructive.
DEAR ABBY: My 12-year-old son still calls me Mommy. My daughter, who is two years older, calls me Mom. I don’t want to hurt my son’s feelings, but I think at his age he should transition to calling me Mom. Should I just give it time, or is there an age limit for calling one’s mother Mommy? — JUST MOM DEAR JUST MOM: I think you should keep your mouth shut. There is nothing shameful or wrong about a son calling his mother Mommy if that is what he has done all his life. It’s far more loving than some of the names people have written to me when referring to their mothers. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips.

Untreated bacterial vaginosis can be dangerous These “newcomers” are not normally present in the vagina in such large numbers. Many women with BV do not have symptoms. In those who do, it can cause the “fishy” vaginal odor that you describe. It can also cause a yellow or white vaginal discharge. ASK The discharge DOCTOR K. seen in BV tends to be thinner than Dr. Anthony the “cheesy,” thick Komaroff discharge seen in vaginal yeast infections. Your doctor can diagnose BV based on the results of a gynecological exam and lab tests of your vaginal fluid. There is no perfect test.
But if you have three of the following criteria, you likely have bacterial vaginosis: • white, thin coating on your vaginal walls during the pelvic exam; • a pH test of vaginal discharge that shows low acidity; • fishy odor of vaginal discharge; • vaginal skin cells that are coated with bacteria when the doctor looks at your discharge under a microscope. Doctors commonly treat BV with antibiotics that eliminate specific bacteria. These drugs can be taken as pills by mouth or applied as a vaginal cream or gel; both treatments are equally effective. But if you are pregnant, some experts recommend the pills instead of the vaginal gel, because they get deeper into potentially infected tissues and may be more effective in eradicating the infection.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I have a strong “fishy” vaginal odor and a little discharge. My doctor recommended Monistat, but that hasn’t helped. What can I do? DEAR READER: Miconazole (Monistat) is an antifungal medication. It treats vaginal yeast infections, which are caused by a fungus. If Monistat didn’t work, you most likely don’t have a yeast infection. Instead, you probably have bacterial vaginosis (BV). This condition causes symptoms that are similar to those of a yeast infection, but it results from a change in the type of bacteria found in the vagina. Normally, bacteria belonging mostly to the Lactobacillus family live harmlessly in the vagina. There, they produce chemicals that keep the vagina mildly acidic. In BV, these bacteria are replaced by other types of bacteria.
All women with symptoms of BV should be treated. Left untreated, the condition may cause pelvic inflammatory disease, an infection involving the uterus, ovaries, or the tubes from the ovaries to the uterus (the oviducts). The infection can spread to other nearby organs, such as the liver. Pelvic inflammatory disease can produce pain, fevers and sometimes discharge from the vagina. If it is not promptly diagnosed and treated, it can cause scarring of the oviducts. This, in turn, can lead to infertility. That’s because the eggs cannot get past the scar tissue. In women who are pregnant, BV increases the risk of premature labor and delivery. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is AskDoctorK.com.

Roof collapses on busy Latvian supermarket RIGA, Latvia (AP) — Hordes of shoppers were picking up food after work in the Latvian capital when an enormous section of the supermarket’s roof caved in. Firefighters rushed in to save them, only to be crushed themselves when a second part of the roof collapsed. The death toll from the rush-hour disaster Thursday evening at the Maxima supermarket in Riga rose to 50 on Friday, including three firefighters, police said. Spokesman Toms Sadovskis said the death toll is expected to go even higher, and that two of the dead were still unidentified. At least 35 people were injured, 28 of them hospitalized, including 10 firefighters struck just as they entered the unstable building, the Fire and Rescue Service said. It was the largest tragedy for the Baltic state since it regained independence in 1991. Latvia’s government declared three days of mourning starting Saturday. The rescue agency could not say how many people might be trapped under the rubble in the densely populated, working-class neighborhood between downtown Riga and the city’s airport. The reason for the collapse was still not known, but rescue and police officials said workers
had been building a garden and children’s playground on the roof as part of a design combining the supermarket and a new 12-story residential building behind it. “They loaded so much material on that roof over the past two weeks that I simply don’t understand,” said Nina Kameneva, a retiree who lives on the 7th floor of an apartment building overlooking the supermarket. She said she and her husband were in the kitchen when the first collapse occurred at approximately 4:45 p.m. on Thursday — a jolt so powerful it shook their building, Kameneva said. She said they both rushed out onto their balcony, from where they saw survivors trying to scramble out of the store through a cloud of dust. Riga Mayor Nils Usakovs told reporters that large bags of earth and sand on a weak spot on the roof could have caused the collapse. An enormous crater-like hole gaped in the supermarket’s roof, while building materials were still stacked on the remaining sections. Rescue workers kept up their round-the-clock search for possible survivors as darkness fell on Friday, periodically turning off all equipment and asking
A view of collapsed Maxima supermarket in Riga, Latvia, Friday. At least 50 people died, including three firefighters, after an enormous section of roof collapsed at a supermarket in the country’s capital, emergency medical officials said. The reason for the
said the search for survivors was proceeding slowly, since both the rubble and the remaining sections of the roof were fragile and could easily collapse further if the wrong piece was moved.

collapse during shopping rush-hour Thursday was still not known, but rescue and police officials said that possible theories include building’s design flaws and poor construction work.
About 500 square meters (5,300 square feet) of the roof collapsed, the rescue service estimated, destroying large sections of the store’s high walls and nearly all its front windows. Several large construc-
