Huq returns to Steuben Initial hearing slated for Thursday BY MIKE MARTURELLO

ANGOLA — Mafuz Huq will be facing a judge Thursday in Steuben County for the first time since an arrest warrant alleging murder was issued for him nearly 24 years ago. Huq, 47, was returned to Steuben County on Tuesday afternoon after being processed upon his return to the United States in the Marion County Jail, Sheriff Tim Troyer said in a news release. Huq arrived in Indianapolis on Saturday and underwent

medical exams before being transported to Angola. Huq, a naturalized U.S. citizen, has been on the lam since August 1989 after authorities believed he allegedly stabbed to death Todd Kelley, 19, Hamilton, on Aug. 9, 1989. Authorities said Kelley’s girlfriend, who had previously dated Huq, found his body. Huq, who was 22 at the time, was charged with murder two weeks after Kelley’s death. At the time, Huq already was accused of threatening to kill anyone who

dated his former girlfriend. After the murder, Huq eventually fled the country. He had been living in Bangladesh, the home country of his Huq parents, under the assumed name of Asif ul Huq. Indiana State Police Detective Kevin Smith tracked down Huq about five years ago through a variety of sources. He was found in Bangladesh, but the United States doesn’t have an extradition treaty with that country, so efforts

More cleanup underway from spill CHICAGO — Enbridge has begun a new round of dredging in Michigan’s Kalamazoo River to clean up oil from the company’s July 2010 pipeline spill, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced Tuesday. Enbridge will dredge about 350,000 cubic yards of contaminated sediment during this phase of the cleanup, the EPA said. During the past three years, nearly 190,000 cubic yards of oil-contaminated material and 1.15 million gallons of oil have been recovered from the river. On July 26, 2010, Enbridge reported that a 30-inch pipeline ruptured near Marshall, Mich., contaminating Talmadge Creek and the Kalamazoo River.

at Christel House Academy. But emails obtained by The Associated Press show Bennett and his staff scrambled last fall to ensure influential donor Christel DeHaan’s school received an “A,” despite Bennett poor 10th grade algebra scores that initially earned it a “C.” Jim Stergios, executive director of the conservative-leaning Pioneer Institute in Boston, said Bennett needs to resign his Florida position for violating the trust of Indiana students and parents. “All you have as an official is your credibility. And that people trust you to do the

ANGOLA — A member of Angola’s legal team in its fight against Showgirl says a favorable ruling on its motions could result in the case being resolved quite fast. The case between Showgirl against the city is coming to a relatively quick conclusion. Attorney Robert Keen, part of the city’s legal team of four attorneys, said Tuesday if U.S. District Court Judge Robert L. Miller rules favorably on the city’s motions, moving forward with the case would be moot. The city filed motions seeking dismissal of all but one claim against it on July 18, and a similar motion is expected for the remaining claim. “If (the judge) grants our motions, there won’t be a need for a preliminary injunction,” Keen said. The preliminary injunction would come from Showgirl and, if granted would pave the way for the strip club to open in the former Slider’s Grill and Bar building at 310 W. Wendell Jacob Ave. Showgirl owner Alva Butler, Fort Wayne, and the city have been fighting over whether Butler could open almost since he bought the building at an Aug. 9, SEE SHOWGIRL, PAGE A5

right thing,” Stergios told The Associated Press. “He has been entrusted with the hopes of parents and the aspirations of children. That’s a sacred trust.” But in Florida, at least one member of the State Board of Education, which hired Bennett, said she remains confident in the job he is doing. “If true, it is troubling,” said Sally Bradshaw, a board member and former chief of staff under Bush. “But Florida has had to adjust our own school grading system to ensure that the grading formula is applied uniformly, and my sense is that that may be what happened in Indiana in this case.” Indiana uses the A-F grades to determine which schools get taken over by the state and

ANGOLA — Salsa dancing, sidewalk sales, arts and crafts, antiques, entertainment and food will be featured at this weekend’s Summer Fest. Sponsored by Go Angola Downtown Alliance, the Friday and Saturday festival is separate and in addition to September’s Fall Fest. Both festivals are being held with an emphasis on fun and drawing attention to the downtown. “It’s small and we’re revamping sidewalk sales,” said LeeAnn Snyder, Summer Fest chair. “We’re hoping that we grow Summer Fest into being its own festival. We want to draw people downtown and draw attention. People don’t realize how many specialty shops and restaurants there are,” she said. Sidewalk sales will be held Friday and Saturday throughout Angola with some businesses staying open with extended hours. On Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday between 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. there will be an art, crafts and antique show in downtown Angola’s Public Square quadrants. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday a taste of downtown can be had in the food court in the Public Square’s southwest quadrant. Provided by downtown businesses, food and entertainment will be offered for taste and listening



Probe pledged in school grade flap INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana education leaders on Tuesday pledged a thorough review of the state’s system for evaluating schools after The Associated Press reported a former official who now serves as Florida’s education commissioner worked to alter a grade for a school founded by a top Republican donor. Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz said the Department of Education is examining the current A-F grade calculations “to ensure that every school has the grade they earned in 2012; nothing more, nothing less.” Tony Bennett, who was appointed Florida’s top education official in December, denies any wrongdoing. He says the changes to Indiana’s grading formula weren’t solely directed

to get Huq returned to the U.S. fell on deaf ears. In either late 2010 or early 2011 it was learned Huq would be traveling to India for a teaching engagement and he was arrested on a provisional arrest request from federal authorities as he deplaned in New Dehli. Since his February 2011 arrest, Huq was held in the Tihar Prison system pending extradition. Huq had fought extradition proceedings while in custody. That and other technicalities in dealing with a foreign government’s legal system, Troyer said, had delayed Huq’s extradition.

State ends fight with Planned Parenthood INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana is apparently ending its two-year legal fight to deny Medicaid funds to Planned Parenthood because it performs abortions. Lawyers for the state and Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky filed a proposed final judgment in the case Monday in federal court in Indianapolis. That judgment still needs a judge’s approval, but it would permanently enjoin Indiana from enforcing a 2011 state law that denied Medicaid funds to the women’s health provider.

Cameron marks breastfeeding week ANGOLA — Cameron Memorial Community Hospital will be celebrating World Breastfeeding Week Aug. 1-7. The 2013 World Breastfeeding Week Theme, “Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers,� highlights the importance of providing support to breastfeeding families. Infant feeding is one of the most important decisions that new families make. Evidence is clear that breastfeeding is the ideal way to feed an infant. Research shows that infants who are not exclusively breastfed for their first six months of life are more likely to develop a wide range of chronic and

acute diseases, including ear infections, diarrheal diseases, asthma, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, obesity and respiratory illnesses. Mothers also benefit from breastfeeding with a decreased risk for breast and ovarian cancers. Despite many mothers wanting to breastfeed, some are met with multiple and complex barriers that keep them from achieving their personal breastfeeding goals. Support and encouragement from all angles can make success possible for mothers who wish to breastfeed. Negative attitudes and practices of the mother’s closest support network can pose a sizable

barrier, making it difficult for mothers and babies to successfully breastfeed. “Learning how to breastfeed takes time and patience for new mothers and infants. It is important to remember that families, friends, healthcare providers, employers, childcare providers, communities, and even the media play a crucial role in mother’s overall success with breastfeeding,� said Tonya Alleshouse, registered nurse and international board certified lactation consultant. Appropriate breastfeeding support can build a mother’s confidence with breastfeeding. “It is critical that breastfeeding families

Death In The News • Eileen Brennan of ‘Private Benjamin’ fame dies at 80 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Eileen Brennan, who went from musical comedy on Broadway to wringing laughs out of memorable characters in such films as “Private Benjamin” and “Clue,” has died. She Breannan was 80. Brennan’s managers, Jessica Moresco and Al Onorato, said she died Sunday at home in Burbank after a battle with bladder cancer. Brennan got her first big role on the New York stage in “Little Mary Sunshine,” but it was a series of sharp-tongued roles that won her fans on television and in movies, including gruff Army Capt. Doreen Lewis in 1980’s “Private Benjamin,” aloof Mrs. Peacock in 1985’s “Clue” and mean orphanage superintendent Miss Bannister in 1988’s “The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking.”

SHOWGIRL: Hearing could be glimpse of outcome PARTNERSHIP: Products aid stabilization of feet FROM PAGE A1

2012, auction. Should Butler’s motion for a preliminary injunction prevail, Keen said the city most likely would appeal Miller’s decision. Angola’s legal team feels the city acted within its constitutional rights in crafting laws that would prevent a strip club from opening at the former Slider’s property, Keen said. “Everything the city did was constitutional and perfectly legal,” Keen said. Butler’s attorneys maintain the city delayed granting him permits in order to craft legislation that would not allow him to open at the Slider’s location. Showgirl attorney Matthew Hoffer said it was obvious that the city enacted legislation to prevent Showgirl from opening, which is against Butler’s constitutional rights. In a teleconference held Thursday, Miller ordered the two parties to file motions then set the hearing for oral arguments on both. Angola’s attorneys are

supposed to file a motion for summary judgment by Aug. 9. Butler’s attorneys are supposed to file a motion for preliminary injunction and reply to the city’s filing by Aug. 21. The city has until Sept. 9 to reply to the preliminary injunction. Other procedural deadlines on the motions have been set, then both parties will be present in a hearing Oct. 25. “Hopefully, shortly thereafter we will have an order from the court … that allows Showgirl to open and operate,” Hoffer said on Monday. Keen said if the judge rules in the city’s favor, there will be no need for the Oct. 25 hearing. Nonetheless, the hearing, if it occurs, should provide at least a glimpse of where the case is headed, Keen said. “The way the briefing schedule is set we’re certainly going to know a lot more by the end of October,” Keen said. Butler’s suit against the city was filed in March after a number of events

prevented him from opening a strip club in Angola. Butler is founder of the Showgirl clubs in Fort Wayne, of which there are now two; there had been three. The company has been in business 25 years. Butler alleges by being denied a business license by the city, his civil rights were violated. After being denied a permit to operate in Angola, Butler appealed that decision on the local level, which was also denied. In March Butler sued the city in U.S. Federal District Court in Fort Wayne, claiming his First and 14th Amendment rights had been violated by Angola officials. Butler claims when he bought the property last year, it met all the current zoning requirements to operate as a strip club. The suit claims Angola knew of Butler’s intentions but delayed granting him permits in order to enact new ordinances that would prevent him from operating at the former Slider’s location.

The thought is that nature has optimized design so rather than find a better way, the designs are mimicked in

His SureStepSM orthosis, a stabilizing system for feet, was developed for children with low muscle tone. The majority of children using the system are diagnosed with Down syndrome, developmental delay or cerebral palsy.

The Detroit Free Press reports that U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Ken Hammond confirms the bus was stopped Sunday as it attempted to enter the U.S. on the Ambassador Bridge. The singer was not on

who defeated Bennett in his re-election bid last November, said the department also will work to create a new accountability system based on individual student academic performance and growth. “Accountability only works when the people making decisions are both fair and transparent,” she said in a statement. Republican Senate Pro Tem David Long called for annual third-party audits of the A-F grades to restore public confidence in the ratings. “The big issue is the fact that it would appear one or more school’s grade was manipulated. That’s completely unacceptable,”

A low grade also can detract from a neighborhood and drive homebuyers elsewhere. After Bennett learned about a likely low grade for Christel House, he fired off a Sept. 12 email to his chief of staff. “This will be a HUGE problem for us,” Bennett wrote. “They need to understand that anything less than an A for Christel House compromises all of our accountability work.” Ritz, a Democrat

Long said. “The system has to be one that all the schools, parents and kids can count on as being fair and impartial. If there’s one thing that can’t be allowed, it’s that any school grades can ever be allowed to be manipulated again.” Bennett, who now is reworking Florida’s grading system as that state’s education commissioner, denied that DeHaan’s Christel House Academy school received special treatment. He said discovering that the charter would receive a low grade raised broader concerns with grades for other “combined” schools — those that included multiple grade levels — across the state.

The derailment occurred near Santiago de Compostela, a city in northwestern Spain, late last Wednesday. Some 66 people injured in the crash are still hospitalized, 15 of them in critical condition. The accident cast a pall over the city, which is the last stop for the faithful who make it to the end of the El Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route.

218 passengers in eight carriages, hurtled off the tracks and slammed into a concrete wall, killing 79 people. On Tuesday, investigators looking into the crash announced their preliminary findings from analysis of the train’s data-recording “black boxes,” suggesting that human error appears to be the cause of Spain’s worst railway disaster in decades.

Briefly • Texas A&M gridder, friend killed in crash BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Texas A&M said Tuesday that redshirt freshman Polo Manukainiu and a friend who was joining the Utah football team this fall were among three people killed in a single-car rollover crash in the high desert of northern New Mexico, stunning both schools just days before fall practices begin. Manukainiu Manukainiu, a 19-year-old defensive lineman for the Aggies, and 18-year-old Utah recruit Gaius “Keio” Vaenuku were killed, officials from both schools said. The wreck happened Monday evening on U.S. 550 near Cuba, N.M., about 85 miles north of Albuquerque, as the group of five was returning from Salt Lake City to suburban Dallas, where three of them had ties to prep football power Trinity High School in Euless. The southbound 2002 Toyota Sequoia drifted off the sagebrush-lined highway, New Mexico State Police spokesman Emmanuel T. Gutierrez said. The driver, 18-year-old Siaosi Salesi Uhatafe Jr. of Euless, over-corrected, causing the vehicle to lose control and roll several times. Alcohol wasn’t involved and it appeared the driver was the only one wearing a seatbelt, investigators said. Manukainiu and 13-yearold passenger Andrew “Lolo” Uhatafe died at the scene after they were ejected from the vehicle, Gutierrez said. Vaenuku was pronounced dead in an ambulance that responded to the accident. The driver and his father, Salesi Uhatafe, were taken to the San Juan Medical Center in Farmington, N.M., and suffered only minor injuries, authorities said. Siaosi Uhatafe was a stepbrother of Manukainiu and, like Vaenuku, also is a Utah recruit. Manukainiu had apparently traveled to Salt Lake City for some relaxation, tweeting Sunday: “It’s always good to get away from the Texas Heat for the weekend. Utah got that breezeeeeeee.” On Monday, hours before the accident, he tweeted: “22 hour drive back to Texas on no sleep. Oh my.” Manukainiu played football at Trinity High and was part of the Aggies’ 2012 signing class. He was a recreation, parks and tourism science major, the school said, and is survived by his mother, Lima Uhatafe of Euless. “We lost a terrific young man,” Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said.

Brewers edge Cubs CHICAGO (AP) — Jean Segura hit a solo homer and the go-ahead double, Khris Davis added a three-run shot, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Chicago Cubs 6-5 after Yovani Gallardo left with a hamstring injury in the first game of a day-night doubleheader Tuesday. Davis’ homer in the seventh on the first pitch from reliever James Russell (1-3) wiped out a 5-2 deficit, and Segura capped the four-run rally with an RBI double, giving the Brewers a 6-5 lead. Milwaukee survived a major scare after Joe Henderson came on in the ninth. He walked a pinch-hitting Dioner Navarro and Welington Castillo, who drove

a 2-0 pitch just foul beyond the left-field wall. Henderson then retired Cody Ransom on a fly to center to give him 13 saves in 16 chances. Segura and Yuniesky Betancourt hit solo homers as Milwaukee built a 2-0 lead, but that unraveled in the fifth. The Cubs tied season highs with five runs and six hits in the inning, while Gallardo limped off the field with tightness in his left hamstring. He came up clutching his leg after delivering a 1-2 pitch to Darwin Barney with two out and the bases loaded and immediately left the game. Barney delivered a tying two-run single off John Axford,

and Castillo, Carlos Villanueva and David DeJesus followed with run-scoring singles to make it 5-2. Gallardo, whose name has come up in trade rumors, allowed three runs and six hits. After Axford got knocked around, Rob Wooten (1-0), Brandon Kintzler and Michael Gonzalez each pitched a scoreless inning before the Cubs threatened against Henderson. Villanueva, who gave up six hits and four runs in 6 1-3 innings for Chicago, was in line for the win after dropping his previous three starts. He left to a nice ovation with a three-run lead and runners on first and third after Betancourt singled.

ANDERSON (AP) — Colts tackle Brandon McKinney was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, costing the team one big piece of its rebuilt defensive line. The 345-pound McKinney was lost one day after coach Chuck Pagano said he had swelling in his surgically-repaired left knee. McKinney spent all of last season on injured reserve, too, after injuring the knee during a preseason game. To replace McKinney, the Colts pulled linebacker C.O. Prime off of waivers. Prime had been waived earlier to make room for another linebacker, Josh McNary, who was cleared to start practicing after serving a two-year stint in the U.S. Army. McKinney watched the afternoon practice but did not participate, and Pagano did not take questions following the afternoon practice to explain why the decision was made. “He had swelling in his knee, something that hasn’t happened because he was doing great,” Pagano said in explaining why McKinney did not practice Monday morning. “He had a little bit of swelling so we just held him out.” It was a tough day for the Colts, who also saw rookie offensive lineman Khaled Holmes carted off the field with a right ankle injury. The severity of that injury isn’t known, but the fourth-round draft pick was expected to compete for playing time at center and guard. He blocked for former Southern California quarterback Matt Barkley in high school and college.

Bucs top Cards in 11 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Alex Presley hit a game-ending single with two outs in the 11th inning, lifting the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 2-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals in the opener of a doubleheader on Tuesday. Presley hit a sharp bouncer that deflected off the glove of pitcher Kevin Siegrist (0-1) and away from shortstop Pete Kozma, who was moving toward second base. Kozma could not recover and the ball rolled into the outfield, allowing Russell Martin to sprint all the way home from second base. With the win, the Pirates moved into first-place in the NL Central, at least briefly. The Cardinals have lost a season-high five straight. Vin Mazzarro (6-2) picked up the win as starter A.J. Burnett and

five relievers held the Cardinals to just six hits. St. Louis has scored five runs in its last 47 innings. Lance Lynn was dominant in six innings for the Cardinals but was long gone by the time Presley came through against Siegrist. Pittsburgh has won the first two games of an important five-game set that could shape the pennant race. The Pirates did it the way they’ve done it for most of the first four months of the season, riding another stellar effort from baseball’s top pitching staff and getting just enough offense to win. The Cardinals had a chance to take the lead in the 10th but Matt Holliday hit into his NL-leading 24th double play with two on and one out. St. Louis went just 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position.

Eifert off to impressive start for Bengals CINCINNATI (AP) — No question who’s one of the early stars of filming for the Cincinnati Bengals’ latest appearance on “Hard Knocks.” Whenever the camera crews shoot footage of people catching the ball, rookie tight end Tyler Eifert is in the frame often. Just as planned. The 21st overall pick out of Notre Dame was expected to add another dimension to Cincinnati’s run-of-the-mill passing game, which ranked only 17th in the league last season. With All-Pro receiver A.J. Green sidelined by a knee injury in camp, Eifert has been getting the ball more than many others with a lot more experience. Cincinnati may have found someone to take the defense’s focus off Green. “He’s done everything we thought and more,” offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said. “He’s just one of those guys that when he makes a play, you kind of look around and see if anybody else saw what he just did. “He’s running routes and catching the ball. He’s very natural at what he does. He can beat man coverage no problem. He can beat zones. He’s got a great feel for the game.” Those who have covered him the first five days of camp have been impressed. Eifert comes up with the ball even when there’s someone right on top of him. “He’s got a different skill-set than a lot of tight ends, I think, as far as the way he runs routes,” cornerback Terence Newman said. “He’s a big guy, but he moves kind of like he


Former Notre Dame star Tyler Eifert has been solid early in training camp for the Cincinnati Bengals.

could be a big wideout. It’s kind of like the 49ers, what they do with Vernon Davis. He’s versatile and he can do anything they ask him to do. “He’s going to be somebody to be reckoned with this year, for sure.”

Green emerged into one of the NFL’s best receivers during his first two seasons, but Cincinnati hasn’t been able to develop a consistent complement. Green had 97 catches for 1,350 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. The Bengals’ next-best receiver was Andrew Hawkins with only 51 catches for 533 yards and four touchdowns. No other receiver had more than 18 catches. Eifert was a dependable receiver at Notre Dame, where he lined up in the slot and at wide receiver positions. The Bengals plan to use him more like a receiver in two tight-end formations with Jermaine Gresham. Given his progress in camp, it looks like that will be an option from the outset. “It’s an extra piece,” Hawkins said. “Every year, guys are added to the offense, whether at wide receiver, running back, tight end. There’s somebody new with unique abilities that will change things up a little bit. “He’s just another piece added to the offense. Hopefully it goes well for us, and so far it has. He’s done extremely well this camp and has such a great feel for the game.” The Bengals had two main questions about Eifert: How well can he block and how quickly can he pick up the offense? They’ll learn more about the blocking during preseason games. For now, he’s working on figuring out what’s expected in the passing game. “I’m still trying to learn the offense, make sure I know all the plays and different positions,” Eifert said.





Farrell favors more replays BOSTON (AP) — Boston manager John Farrell is certainly on-board with expanding the use of replays in baseball after an admitted blown call cost the Red Sox the potential tying run in a loss a night earlier. Speaking to reporters at Fenway Park on Tuesday night about three hours before Boston opened a three-game series against Seattle, Farrell said he believes that with better technology baseball can get more “out or safe” calls correct. Trailing by a run in the eighth inning of a 2-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Monday, pinch-runner Daniel Nava

was called out by home plate umpire Jerry Meals attempting to score on a fly ball. After watching the replay, Meals later admitted to a pool reporter from the Associated Press that he was “wrong on my decision.” Major League Baseball is looking at a vast expansion of video review by umpires for the 2014 season and is examining whether all calls other than balls and strikes should be subject to instant replay. Currently, baseball uses replay only for home runs, but Farrell thinks the game would be better served by expanding its use.

Ailing Berkman to decide future ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Lance Berkman expects to know soon whether he will play again this season for the Texas Rangers, or retire. The 37-year-old designated hitter with surgically repaired knees has been on the disabled list since July 7 with left hip inflammation. He played in 32 games last season for St. Louis because of a left calf strain and two operations on his right knee, and that knee is affecting his mechanics and limiting his power. Running is also problematic. “I don’t have any concerns that I wouldn’t be able to get back out on the field. In terms of how effective I’ll be once I get out there, I mean, I do have some concern about that,” Berkman said Tuesday.

“My swing is not at a good place because of my knee. Not because of the pain, but because of the inability to put it in the position that it needs it to be to hit with any kind of authority. … I can go up there and slap the ball around, but that’s really not what we need.” After a strong start to the season, the switch-hitting Berkman was hitting .254 with six home runs and 34 RBIs in 68 games when he went on the DL. Berkman said before Tuesday night’s game against the Angels that he planned to take batting practice for a couple of days to see how he felt. While Berkman didn’t take BP on the field, hitting coach Dave Magadan said there was no setback and that Berkman was instead hitting in the indoor cage.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Player who scored first basket in NBA history dies at age 94 BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Oscar “Ossie” Schectman, the former New York Knicks guard who scored the first basket in NBA history, died Tuesday. He was 94. Schectman’s son Peter confirmed his father’s death, which was also announced by the Knicks. Peter says his dad died of complications from respiratory failure. Schectman scored the opening basket of a game in what was then known as the BAA on Nov. 1, 1946 for the Knicks against the Toronto Huskies. Commissioner David Stern said Tuesday in a statement that Schectman was a “pioneer.” The commissioner says, “Playing for the New York Knickerbockers in the 1946-47 season, Ossie scored the league’s first basket, which placed him permanently in the annals of NBA history. On behalf of the entire NBA family, our condolences go out to Ossie’s family.”

French Lick named host for 2015 Senior PGA Championship FRENCH LICK (AP) — French Lick Resort in southern Indiana will host the 2015 Senior PGA Championship on its Pete Dye Course. The PGA announced the decision Tuesday. The par-72, 7,400-yard course opened in 2009 and was designed by Dye, the legendary Indiana golf architect. The tournament will be held May 21-24, 2015, with an expected field of 156 players. This will be the fourth major at the resort. The 1924 PGA Championship was played on the Donald Ross Course and won by Walter Hagen. French Lick also held the 1959 and 1960 LPGA Championships.

Cards deal southpaw to Tribe CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians have acquired left-handed reliever Marc Rzepczynski from the St. Louis Cardinals. The Indians sent minor league infielder Juan Herrera to St. Louis on Tuesday in exchange for Rzepczynski, who Cleveland hopes will help them get out left-handed hitters. The 27-year-old is 9-17 with a 4.20 ERA in 177 career games for Toronto and St. Louis. Lefties have batted .224 against Rzepczynski, who pitched 2 2-3 scoreless innings for the Cardinals in the 2011 World Series. Rzepczynski has split this season between St. Louis and Triple-A Memphis. In two stints with the Cardinals, he posted a 7.84 ERA in 11 games. He has limited lefties to a .185 average in the minors. Cleveland’s only other left-handed reliever is Rich Hill. Herrera batted .275 in 39 games for Class A Mahoning Valley.

Sharks lock up Pavelski with five-year extension SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The San Jose Sharks signed center Joe Pavelski to a $30 million, five-year contract extension Tuesday that will keep him off the free-agent market next summer. “It’s always exciting when a franchise puts that responsibility on you a little bit,” Pavelski said. “It’s important to continue to play at a high level in that regard. It’s a position I wanted to be in, and it’s exciting to have this opportunity.” Pavelski is the second key player signed to an extension this offseason by general manager Doug Wilson. Center Logan Couture also signed a $30 million, five-year extension earlier this month, a year before he could become a free agent. The deals keep both players under contract through the 2018-19 season. Pavelski, a seventh-round pick in 2003, has become a cornerstone of the franchise that has long been led by Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau. “He is one of our core players, the way he plays,” general manager Doug Wilson. “To me it was just an important contract to get done on the heels of Logan’s contract also. He fits for now and the future the way he plays the game.” He was tied for third on the team in points last season when he had 16 goals and 15 assists in 48 games.

Pistons acquire point guard Jennings in deal with Bucks DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Pistons have made another move in their busy offseason, acquiring Brandon Jennings as they desperately try to end their four-year postseason drought. Detroit landed the point guard from the Milwaukee Bucks for point guard Brandon Knight and two prospects, according to a person familiar with the deal. The person, who spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the trade hasn’t been announced, said Jennings has agreed to a $24 million, three-year contract with the Pistons. The person said Detroit will also give up seldom-used Ukrainian center Viacheslav Kravtsov and forward Khris Middleton in the deal. Detroit has been active this offseason, signing free agents Josh Smith, Chauncey Billups and Luigi Datome along with bringing back Will Bynum.

Gingerich is library “Genius” t can be difficult to pick out a new book at the library. Once you’ve exhausted all your favorite authors’ offerings, it’s pretty much a hit-and-miss proposition when trying someone different. Getting books for the girl and the boy to take on a vacation is even worse. That was the challenge I faced Tuesday. Fearing an hour of “I don’t know …” hesitation, I trudged up to the Garrett Public Library, my little minions in tow. As a parent, telling them “no” is pretty much a reflex. Asking them if they like a book and having them tell me “no” is pretty much untenable. Thankfully, we had just started our search when we met Kiley Gingerich, a children’s librarian. She quietly asked if she could help, so I told her some of the books my kids had read. I was more interested in whittling down her suggestions than expecting what MATT came next. Gingerich immediGETTS ately engaged us with an enthusiasm that was incredible. We all know the librarian stereotype, the buttoned-down woman with the glasses who spends half of her time checking out books and the other half hissing “shhhhh.” Gingerich turns that stereotype on its head. She immediately began suggesting books based on what the boy and the girl had already read. The popular music retailer iTunes offers something called “Genius” for its users. “Genius” suggests songs and artists related to what already has been selected. As far as my kids went Tuesday, Gingerich was a living and breathing “Genius” when selecting reading materials. In the past, we have been to a couple of libraries and come home empty-handed after looking for an hour or more. With not many other customers in the children’s section Tuesday, we lucked out when Gingerich came to us and offered to help. In a day and age when true customer service is a rarity, it’s obviously not a forgotten commodity at the Garrett Public Library under the guiding hand of Kate Birdseye, the library’s director. Gingerich didn’t just want us to find books, she wanted the kids to find good books. Libraries are magical places, with each book containing a journey that can be experienced from one’s own living room, front porch or bedroom. Finding the right book that will catch the imagination of children isn’t easy. I’ve tried it. We found a magical tour guide in Gingerich. Her enthusiasm for finding the right books excited the kids. Her knowledge of the books a 10-year-old girl and her 13-year-old brother would like to read was truly remarkable. Each of the kids left the library with three books they couldn’t wait to get started reading. This area is blessed with many carrying library professionals. We found a gem in Gingerich. You could say she’s a “Genius.”

Letters to The Editor • Humans are one ‘blood,’ different shades of basic brown To the editor: Once again the the race baiting liberal elitists continue stirring the pot of racial division among the American people. The Bible does not even use the word “race” in reference to people but describes all human beings as being of “one blood” (Acts 17:26; KJV). This emphasizes that we are all related, descendants of Adam and Eve. We read it Genesis that their descendants filled the earth, however, the world’s population was reduced to eight during the flood of Noah. From these eight individuals have come

all the tribes and nations. As people migrated from Babel, different groups became isolated from others and likely married only within their language group. Each group carried a set of physical characteristics as determined by their genes. As they intermarried, certain characteristics would begin to dominate due to the group’s small pool of genes. We all have a brown pigment in our skin called melanin. This is what makes us the shade of color that we are. Some people have a lot of melanin and they would be very dark; some people don’t have as much melanin, they would be lighter. We all do have the same type of skin color, it is just that the amount of melanin (brown color) differs from person to

person. Actually, no human really is “black” or “white.” There are not different colors but different shades of one basic color, brown. The term race is often used to classify people based on physical characteristics. According to evolutionary ideas, these so-called races descended from different ancestors separated by location and time. However, based on biblical history, the term race must be incorrect. We are all descended from two ancestors, Adam and Eve. Bottom line: We all belong to one race, the human race, equal in value before God our Creator. Ken Blinco Shipshewana

French beat the English to Indiana

istorians aren’t sure which white man stepped first on Hoosier soil but he most certainly was French and he likely arrived in the 1670s — 150 years before Indiana statehood. “Possibly it was an obscure Frenchman whose adventures were never recorded — if he lived to tell the tale,” wrote the historians John Barnhart and Dorothy Riker in their book, “Indiana to 1816,” the first in a five-volume history published for the state’s sesquicentennial in 1971. Perhaps it was Jacques Marquette, the Jesuit priest sent to New France — now Canada — as missionary to the Indians. He explored the Mississippi River with Louis Jolliet and returned to northern Michigan possibly by way of northern Indiana in 1675. Or it may have been René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle, who set up camp at present-day South Bend in 1679 during a portage from the St. Joseph to the Kankakee River. LaSalle would later explore the Mississippi River and claim the surrounding land for France, dubbing it Louisiana in honor of the French king. A historic marker installed in 1950 marks the spot one mile east of where LaSalle and his party camped overnight at South Bend. The marker declares


LaSalle “the first white man to enter Indiana,” though subsequent scholarship has cast doubt on the claim, said Pam Bennett, director of the Indiana Historical Bureau. The bureau is in the process of updating older markers in time for the state’s bicentennial in 2016. The revisions will reflect new research as well as more demanding standards for documentation of a subject’s historic significance. Another LaSalle marker installed in 2000 on the Kankakee ANDREA River near the Starke and LaPorte County NEAL lines is less definitive. It describes the explorer’s canoe trip “down the meandering Kankakee River through vast marsh-swamp-dune ecosystems that covered over 625 square miles and teemed with game including fish, waterfowl and mammals.” The portage route between the rivers stretched about four miles crossing mostly prairie grass and woods. The trail, long ago erased by farming and

residential development, was was well known among 17th-century trappers, who learned of it from Indian guides. Because Jolliet placed the St. Joseph River on a map in 1674, historians suspect he knew of the portage and may have chosen that route when he accompanied an ailing Marquette from Illinois back to the Great Lakes in 1675. “The question of who was first may not ever be answered without qualification,” Bennett said. This much is definite. The French beat the English to Indiana — some of them merely passing through on their way elsewhere and others setting up forts or hunting for beaver in the lucrative fur trade. In the 17th and 18th centuries, France’s North American empire stretched from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, and two northern Indiana rivers held a strategic position. Note to readers: This is one in a series of essays leading up to the celebration of the Indiana Bicentennial in December 2016.

Reading the newspaper can save your life BY PHIL BREMEN

News is like food. A lot of people won’t even taste something they think they won’t like. But like food, news also nourishes us. In fact, reading the newspaper can even save our lives – especially if we sample beyond the familiar. For example, The Washington Post recently gave its readers an expert’s step-by-step formula for escaping from a car underwater. The story was inspired by the amazing survival of a 22-year-old woman after her car plunged off the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. If I were still in the business of cranking out news stories every day, I might have thought to do that story myself. But I’m not, and I didn’t. As someone who drives a lot, I might have searched the Web for advice on how to get out of a sinking car. But I didn’t. Thanks to a newspaper, though, I now know how to survive another of life’s perils. What a good newspaper does is sense what we’d want to know if we had mind to ask, then serve it to us, unbidden, on paper or on a screen. This smorgasbord of information would be especially helpful for the young, but they are least likely to follow the news. For instance, I read last spring about a new federal program

to make it easier to repay college loans. However, the newspaper story quickly added, many graduates don’t know about it. To be sure, most news stories won’t lead us away from the precipice of debt, much less death. But day in and day out, news does provide a guide to successful living. We see accounts of people who have overcome adversity or just plain applied themselves to excel in this sport or that career. They and those around them describe how they did it. On the other hand, we also see a steady stream of reportage on people whose lives have gone off the rails. We learn what went wrong – and perhaps make a note to ourselves not to go that way. Not long ago, I read about a man who has been arrested 115 times in 20 years. Most of those arrests, the newspaper reported, involved alcohol. Even a casual reader might be reminded of the perils of excessive drinking – and how difficult it can be for some people to stay sober. Yes, reminded. Often what the news tells us is reinforcement rather than revelation. Consider then-U.S. Rep. Christopher Lee. In June 2009, his byline appeared on an op-ed article in a newspaper in his district in western New York. His

column warned teenagers that a few injudicious keystrokes on the Internet could ruin their lives. Fast-forward to February 2011, when Lee abruptly resigned, clearly having ignored his own advice. The married congressman had emailed a shirtless photo of himself to a woman he met on Craigslist. Anthony Weiner must have noticed. He was also from New York, serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, and married. Yet just four months later, Weiner, too, resigned – after the disclosure that he had electronically shared lewd messages and photos with at least six women. Now running for mayor of New York City, Weiner admits he has been sexting again. So, clearly, some of us don’t learn from sorry experiences, even our own. But if we are both attentive and willing, we can fortify our defenses against causing havoc for ourselves and those who care about us. The news underscores those lessons again and again. You may already appreciate that. You’re reading a newspaper. PHIL BREMEN, a former newspaper reporter and NBC News correspondent, is an associated professor of telecommunications at Ball State University.



Briefs • EU’s top diplomat says Egypt’s Morsi is doing ‘well’ CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s detained ex-president is well and keeping up to date with developments through news media, the top EU diplomat said Monday after she made the first visit since a military coup deposed him July 3. Catherine Ashton of the European Union told reporters she had a long late-night meeting with Morsi. She said she saw the facility where he is being held but did not know where it is. It was Morsi’s first contact with the outside world since he was toppled in a military coup on July 3. Ashton also called for an inclusive political process and an end to the violence that has left Egypt deeply divided between opponents and supporters of the ousted Islamist leader. She was allowed to meet with Morsi for two hours Monday evening, saying she was able to see the facilities where Morsi is being held, but she does not know his location.

WikiLeaks source didn’t aid enemy Manning still found guilty of espionage, theft and other charges FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning was acquitted of aiding the enemy — the most serious charge he faced — but was convicted of espionage, Manning theft and other charges Tuesday, more than three years after he spilled secrets to WikiLeaks. The judge, Army Col.

Denise Lind, deliberated for about 16 hours over three days before reaching her decision in a case that drew worldwide attention as supporters hailed Manning as a whistleblower. The U.S. government called him an anarchist computer hacker and attention-seeking traitor. Manning stood at attention, flanked by his attorneys, as the judge read her verdicts. He appeared not to react, though his attorney, David Coombs, smiled faintly when he heard not guilty on aiding

Obama challenges GOP to accept corporate tax deal CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — President Barack Obama on Tuesday offered congressional Republicans a new corporate tax cut and jobs spending package he said might “help break through some of the political logjam in Washington,” only to have GOP lawmakers immediately throw cold water on the idea. The announcement and quick rejection underscored how elusive common ground is between the Democratic White House and Republicans in Congress on fiscal issues. The divide was particularly stark on the corporate tax proposal given that both parties generally have supported overhauling the code for businesses, though the White House and Republicans have differed on specifics. Obama outlined his proposal in a speech at a massive plant in Chattanooga, his latest stop on a summertime campaign to refocus his agenda on the economy. He said “serious people” in both parties should accept his offer. “I’m willing to work with Republicans on reforming our corporate tax code, as long as we use the money from transitioning to a

simpler tax system for a significant investment in creating middle-class jobs,” Obama said. “That’s the deal.” But the office of House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, complained that Obama’s plan was simply a repackaging of proposals the White House has always supported. “It’s the opposite of a concession,” said spokesman Brendan Buck, noting that Republicans want to link a corporate tax overhaul with changes in the individual tax code. In another sign of their sour relationship, Boehner and the White House also dueled over the proposal’s rollout, with the speaker’s office saying officials there first learned about the plan from media reports. An Obama spokesman said the White House tried to tell Boehner’s staff about the plan a day in advance but the call was not returned. Like Republicans, the president previously has called for corporate tax reform to be coupled with an individual tax overhaul. But his new offer drops that demand and calls only for lowering the corporate rate from 35 percent to 28 percent, with an even lower effective tax rate of 25 percent for manufacturers.

the enemy, which carried a potential life sentence. When the judge was done, Coombs put his hand on Manning’s back and whispered something to him, eliciting a slight smile on the soldier’s face. Manning was convicted on 19 of 21 charges, and he previously pleaded guilty to a charge involving an Icelandic cable. He faces up to 136 years in prison. His sentencing hearing begins Wednesday. Coombs came outside the court to a round of applause and shouts of “thank you” from a few dozen Manning supporters. “We won the battle, now we need to go win the

war,” Coombs said of the sentencing phase. “Today is a good day, but Bradley is by no means out of the fire.” Supporters thanked him for his work. One slipped him a private note. Others asked questions about verdicts that they didn’t understand. Manning’s court-martial was unusual because he acknowledged giving the anti-secrecy website more than 700,000 battlefield reports and diplomatic cables, and video of a 2007 U.S. helicopter attack that killed civilians in Iraq, including a Reuters news photographer and his driver. In the footage, airmen laughed and called targets “dead bastards.” A military

investigation found troops mistook the camera equipment for weapons. Besides the aiding the enemy acquittal, Manning was also found not guilty of an espionage charge when the judge found prosecutors had not proved their assertion Manning started giving material to WikiLeaks in late 2009. Manning said he started the leaks in February the following year. Manning pleaded guilty earlier this year to lesser offenses that could have brought him 20 years behind bars, yet the government continued to pursue all but one of the original, more serious charges.

Israel, Palestinians eye peace deal within 9 months

Explosions rock Florida gas plant TAVARES, Fla. (AP) — A series of explosions rocked a central Florida propane gas plant, igniting a 200-foot high fireball, and sent the sound of “boom after boom after boom” through the neighborhood around it. Eight people were injured, with at least four in critical condition. John Herrell of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office said early Tuesday that no one died despite massive blasts that ripped through the Blue Rhino propane plant property late Monday night. Officials initially scrambled to find more than a dozen employees after the explosions. Neighboring houses were evacuated, but no damage to them was reported. “Management is comfortable saying all of those they knew were there tonight have been accounted for,” he said. Tavares Fire Chief Richard Keith said possible causes of the explosion may be either equipment malfunction or human error. Sabotage was not suspected. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration launched an investigation, as did the Florida State Fire Marshal’s office. One person injured in the explosion was listed in critical condition.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Israeli and Palestinian negotiators agreed Tuesday to meet again within two weeks to start substantive negotiations on a so-far elusive peace deal with the goal of reaching a deal within nine months, Secretary of State John Kerry said. Speaking as the two sides wrapped up an initial two days of talks at the State Department after paying a visit to President Barack Obama at the White House, Kerry said Israel and the Palestinians were committed to “sustained, continuous and substantive negotiations on the core issues” that divide them. He said the next round of negotiations would take place in either Israel or the Palestinian territories at an as yet-unspecified date before mid-August. “The parties have agreed here today that all of the final status issues, all of the core issues and all other issues are all on the table for

negotiation. And they are on the table with one simple goal: a view to ending the conflict,” Kerry said. “Our objective will be to achieve a final status agreement over the course of the next nine months.” U.S. officials had previously said the negotiations would continue for a minimum of nine months without setting that as a timeframe for reaching a deal. Kerry said he was aware of the deep skepticism surrounding the new push for peace and acknowledged that the road ahead would be difficult. Yet, he said he was hopeful an agreement could be reached. “While I understand the skepticism, I don’t share it. And I don’t think we have time for it,” he said. “I firmly believe the leaders, the negotiators and citizens invested in this effort can make peace for one simple reason: because they must,” Kerry said. “A viable two-state solution is the only way this conflict

can end. And there is not much time to achieve it. And there is no other alternative.” Kerry said the negotiations, to be mediated on a day-to-day basis by his new Mideast peace envoy, Martin Indyk, would be cloaked in secrecy and that the parties had agreed that he would be the only person to comment on them. He quickly added that he would not comment on them, leaving unclear the framework for the talks that he struggled for six months to get back on track. Despite the secrecy, the broad outlines of an agreement are well known: the Palestinians want a state based on the lines, with agreed land swaps, that existed before the 1967 war in which Israel seized east Jerusalem and occupied the West Bank and Gaza. Israel wants security assurances and a recognition that it is and will remain a Jewish state.

Intimacy is risky without birth control DEAR ABBY: My girlfriend, “Allison,” and I have been in a relationship for two years. We met in our sophomore year of high school and have been dating ever since. We have an incredible relationship. We were virgins when we started dating, but decided we would lose our virginity to each other. We have always used birth control pills and condoms to ensure we wouldn’t be having any children. Earlier this month we had a pregnancy scare. Allison had failed to tell me she stopped taking her birth control pills three months ago. My trust was broken, but most of all I was scared she might be pregnant. It turned out she wasn’t, but because of the incident I have been skeptical about making love to her. She says this frustrates her, but I have told her the reason I won’t




Allison would stop taking her birth control pills without telling you. If there was a medical reason, there are other methods she could have used in their place. (If you are planning to attend college, she may have been thinking a baby would “anchor” you to her.) And last, recognize that if you resume having sex with her — which I emphatically DON’T recommend — that you won’t be able to trust her as far as birth control is concerned, and you will be the one totally responsible for preventing a pregnancy. The saying, “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on ME,” applies here. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Use common sense to avoid lightning strikes misunderstand: Getting hit by lightning is not inevitably fatal. In fact, most people live to tell the tale. Lightning can cause first- and second-degree burns. Survivors of lightning-related injuries may end up with neurologASK ical and eye DOCTOR K. problems. And many victims Dr. Anthony experience bad, Komaroff unrelenting headaches for several months. When lighting does cause death, cardiac arrest is the most common cause. That’s because the electricity scrambles the heart’s

electrical system and sets off dangerous irregular heart rhythms. Here are some tips for staying safe in a thunderstorm: • Seek shelter in a vehicle. If a car or bus gets hit, the electrical current stays on the outside of the metal shell of the vehicle. • Seek shelter in a large structure and avoid small structures. Small buildings such as bus shelters or huts on golf courses may increase the risk of lightning injury if they are the tallest objects in an area. Metal poles in tents can act as lightning rods. • Stay away from clearings and single trees. If you are in the woods, don’t head for a clearing. Take cover in an area with small trees or bushes. If you’re in an open area, don’t stand near an isolated tree. Instead, find a low-lying area and squat with your feet together

Almanac •

DEAR DOCTOR K: I love to go outside during a summer thunderstorm, but my sister is convinced I’ll get hit by lightning. Do I really need to head inside when there’s a storm brewing? DEAR READER: At the end of a stiflingly hot and humid day, when lightning flashes and thunder rumbles, it can be tempting to head outside into the cool deluge. When I was young, I did that a lot. (In fact, I did a lot of crazy things. That’s because, like many young people, I thought I was immortal. Yes, in the back of my mind I knew that people die. I guess I thought there might be an exception in my case.) Today, I know better, and I stay indoors during electrical storms. Your sister is right: Lightning strikes that accompany thunderstorms can be hazardous. There’s a lot of electricity in a bolt of lightning. Don’t

is because she refuses to take the pill. Abby, we are way too young to have a child and are totally unprepared. I’d still like to be intimate with Allison, but I’m afraid. What should I do? — BETRAYED IN BANGOR, MAINE DEAR BETRAYED: You appear to be an intelligent and responsible young man. The first thing you should do is thank your higher power that there DEAR wasn’t an ABBY “accident” and your girlfriend Jeanne Phillips didn’t become pregnant. The next thing you should do is find out why

and hands over your ears. • Don’t wait till the clouds are overhead. Lightning can travel far ahead of the storm clouds producing rain. Light travels a lot faster than sound; that’s why you usually see a flash of lightning and hear the thunder later. That difference in the speed of light and the speed of sound helps you to guess how far away the lightning is. Seek shelter when the time between seeing lightning and hearing thunder is 30 seconds or less. • Don’t go outside for at least 30 minutes after the last lightning seen. This is a good general rule of thumb. If it’s been a half-hour since the last lightning, the storm causing the lightning probably has passed. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is:
