Steuben deputy airlifted after crash FROM STAFF REPORTS

HELMER — A Steuben County Sheriff’s Department reserve deputy was life-flighted from the scene of a crash just before midnight Saturday, Sheriff Tim Troyer said in a news release. Reserve deputy Adam Meeks, 34, of Fremont, sustained head, ankle and wrist injuries in the crash, which occurred on S.R. 327S, just north of C.R. 400S while he was traveling south to assist with an incident being handled by DeKalb County police at about 11:40 p.m. Deputies and the Indiana State Police were responding to the Story Lake area to assist DeKalb County police with a 911 call

reporting a man with a gun threatening to shoot people at a large gathering, Troyer said. When Meeks, in his patrol car, crested a hill and encountered another southbound vehicle entering the road, the deputy tried to avoid a collision with the passenger vehicle. Meeks went partially off of the east side of the Meeks road and began to lose control. The deputy then drove back across S.R. 327 and off the west side of the road, striking a tree. Meeks was pinned in his car for more than an hour, requiring

extrication by responding fire rescue crews. Once extricated, the deputy was flown from the crash site to Parkview Trauma Center in Fort Wayne by Samaritan Helicopter for treatment of a head injury, along with injuries to his ankle and wrist. He is in the intensive care unit, Troyer said. Alcohol was not a factor, seat belts were in use and the airbag deployed, Troyer said. The crash remains under investigation by the Indiana State Police. The officer was traveling in a marked 2010 Ford Crown Victoria police cruiser with lights and siren activated. Meeks has been a reserve

deputy with Steuben County for the past 18 months, Troyer said. Agencies that assisted were Hamilton, Orland, Ashley and Hudson police departments and the Hudson, Salem and Orland fire departments. “The emergency services that responded are to be commended for their expertise and hard work in the extrication process and medical care given to Adam during this very serious crash,” Troyer said Sunday night. “It is truly comforting to witness and come to know such dedication, expertise and professionalism in our fire rescue, EMS and law enforcement during such a critical time of need. I am so thankful for each of them.”

ORLAND — Deb Arnett was born to be wild. The motorcycle mama from the little town of Orland rides her Harley Davidson into work at the Steuben County Courthouse in Angola. And, then, she changes into her riding gear and heads back north and east to Orland, where she is the director of the Legion Riders at the Orland American Legion. Arnett took the volunteer position because she was encouraged to do so by other members. “I said with their help, I would do it,” said Arnett. She said she’s



received all the help she needed, and more. “We do this as a team,” said Arnett. “I am nothing without the members.” Arnett is the only woman serving as a Legion Riders director in District 4 and one of the few in the state.

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria agreed Sunday to a U.N. investigation into last week’s alleged chemical weapons attack outside Damascus — a deal a senior White House official dismissed as “too late to be credible,” saying the United States has “very little doubt” President Bashar Assad’s forces used such weapons. The hardening of the U.S. position came as calls for military action grow. In a sign the U.S. may be a step closer to an armed response, naval forces have already been dispatched toward Syria’s coastal waters, although President Barack Obama has cautioned against a hasty decision. With France, Britain, Israel and some U.S. congressmen urging swift military action against Assad’s regime if the use of chemical agents is confirmed, the U.N. team’s conclusions could have a dramatic impact on the trajectory of the country’s civil war. The agreement struck in Damascus calls for U.N. experts already in the country to begin an investigation Monday into the suspected chemical attack on rebel-held areas in the capital’s SEE SYRIA, PAGE A6

Growing Yosemite fire poses extreme challenges GROVELAND, Calif. (AP) — At Ike Bunney’s dude ranch near the Sierra community of Tuolumne City, all creatures have been evacuated as firefighters brace for an intense battle to keep a wildfire raging north of Yosemite National Park out of mountain communities. “We’ve already evacuated the horses,” said Bunney, who was keeping an eye on his Slide Mountain Guest Ranch on Sunday. “I think they’re worried about the fire sparking over these hills.” As fire leapfrogs across the vast, picturesque Sierra forests, moving from one treetop to the next, residents in the fire’s path are moving animals and children to safety. The fire has moved northeast away from Groveland, where smoke gave away to blue skies Sunday. But at Tuolumne City’s Black Oak Casino in Tuolumne

City, the slot machines were quiet as emergency workers took over nearly all of the resort’s 148 hotel rooms. “The casino is empty,” said casino employee Jessie Dean, who left her four children at relatives’ homes in the Central Valley. “Technically, the casino is open, but there’s nobody there.” Hundreds of firefighters were deployed Sunday to protect Tuolumne City and other communities in the path of the Rim Fire. Eight fire trucks and four bulldozers were deployed near Bunney’s ranch on the west side of Mount Baldy, where two years of drought have created tinder-dry conditions. “Winds are increasing, so it’s going to be very challenging,” said Bjorn Frederickson, a spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service. The fire continues burning SEE FIRE, PAGE A6


The Rim Fire burns along Highway 120 near Yosemite National Park, Calif., on Sunday. With winds gusting to 50 mph on Sierra mountain ridges and flames jumping from treetop to treetop, hundreds of firefighters have been deployed to protect this and other communities in the path of the Rim Fire raging north of the national park.





Cowbirds — lazy or just adaptable?


In this May 30, 2012 photo, a home in the Quail Crossing Subdivision in Boonville, is shown, which was destroyed by mine subsidence in the area. A state lawmaker wants the state’s insurance commissioner to lower the premiums homeowners in the area pay.

Bill gives another $10 million for damaged homes INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A state lawmaker concerned about Indiana’s recent move to dip into a fund set aside for repairs to homes damaged by soil shifting above old coal mines wants the state’s insurance commissioner to lower the premiums homeowners in the state’s coal country pay into that fund. The $30 billion, two-year budget lawmakers passed in April included a little-noticed provision authorizing the transfer of $10 million from the Indiana Mine Subsidence Insurance Fund to the state’s general fund, which is Indiana’s main checking account. The state’s management and budget director, Chris Atkins, said that money helped finance the Legislature’s $25 million commitment to the Indiana Biosciences Research Institute, a new Indianapolis-based center that’s a collaboration between life sciences companies and research universities. The transfer, on July 1, left $5.1 million in the Mine Subsidence account, which is financed by optional policies homeowners in 26 Indiana coal-mining counties can purchase. Atkins said the fund’s new balance is more than enough to meet claims that totaled an average of $743,000 annually since 2009. He said lawmakers tapped the fund because it had “a very healthy balance” beyond what’s needed to pay claims filed by residents whose homes are damaged as soil settles over abandoned underground mines. “We thought this was a pretty good source of funding for the institute,” Atkins said. “We were just trying to take as much pressure as we could off the general fund to free those dollars up for schools

and roads and health care.” In announcing the new nonprofit center in May, Gov. Mike Pence predicted it would spur scientific innovation and lure new life sciences jobs, investment and leading scientists to the state. But former state Rep. Russ Stilwell, a Democrat who until 2010 represented a southwestern Indiana district in the heart of the state’s coal country, said the transfer won’t sit well with thousands of residents who purchased the special policies. “They’re in essence taking these premiums from homeowners who elect to purchase this insurance and using it for absolutely unintended purposes,” he said. “So me and all my neighbors who are purchasing mine subsidence premiums, we’re actually paying premiums for the governor, or somebody, to spend it on something else.” The state statute that created the Mine Subsidence fund in 1986 specifies that its balance won’t revert to the state’s general fund at the end of each fiscal year — as is the case with some state funds. But Atkins said the budget bill’s language supersedes that and authorized a one-time transfer from the fund, which is one of 289 so-called “dedicated funds” Indiana maintains. State Rep. Ron Bacon, R-Chandler, said the fund-transfer language was added to the budget bill during the closing hours of the General Assembly’s session in April. He said he supported that provision because he was assured there was more than enough money in the fund to cover mine subsidence claims for a least a few years and because roughly $1 million enters the fund each year.

“Cowbirds! I hate ‘em!” It’s a common sentiment, perhaps the common sentiment about the brown-headed cowbird, the common, widespread cowbird. It’s well known too, a little black bird with a brown head, smaller than a red-winged blackbird, larger than a house sparrow. That’s the male. The female is gray. Immatures OUTDOOR are grayishNOTES brown and streaked. Cowbirds are brood Neil Case parasites. They don’t build nests. The females lay their eggs in the nests of other birds. That’s why so many people dislike them. Cowbirds don’t incubate and hatch their eggs, they don’t feed and care for their own nestlings. They’re lazy. Further, more often than not they lay their eggs in the nests of smaller birds and a cowbird egg in the nest of a chipping sparrow, for example, means the destruction of the chipping sparrow’s eggs or death of its nestlings. A cowbird’s egg is larger than the eggs of most of the birds a cowbird parasitizes and it has a shorter incubation period. It hatches before the host’s eggs. Then the young cowbird actually pushes all other eggs up the inside and out of the nest.

When a young cowbird hatches with the other eggs in a nest, the cowbird nestling is bigger than its nest mates. It’s also more aggressive. It pushes the other nestling aside, reaches higher and gets most of the food brought by the parent birds. It grows rapidly while the other nestlings starve. What’s not to hate about a cowbird? Well, let’s at least give them credit for having adapted to a special way of life. They feed on grassland weed seeds and insects. Once they were birds of the American prairie. They got their food around American buffalo. They fed around, even under, grazing buffalo. Explorers, then settlers moving into the American plains, the prairie, called them buffalo birds. American buffalo or bison were wanderers. They didn’t stay anyplace long enough for birds to build nests, incubate eggs and raise nestlings. Following those animals that kicked up food for them, these birds that trailed with the buffalo became nomads and brood parasites, leaving the hatching of their eggs and raising of their young to other birds. The American frontier became a buffalo slaughterhouse. Associated with the buffalo as they were, it would seem when the buffalo disappeared, the buffalo birds would, too. But another animal was introduced, an animal that grazed like the buffalo had, cattle. Driven to market in herds, cattle even traveled like the buffalo had.

A brown-headed cowbird perched on a tree limb.

Following these newcomers, adapting, buffalo birds became cowbirds. Not all cattle were in herds. Many pioneers’ farms had a cow or two or more. Going to the farms where there were cows expanded the range of the one-time prairie buffalo birds. Today, the range of the cowbird during the nesting season of other birds is from the Atlantic Coast of the U.S. and Canada to the Pacific Coast, from northern Canada south to the Gulf Coast of the U.S. and much of Mexico. As the cowbird adapted to cattle and to cows and expanded its range, a few other birds adapted to the cowbird. Robins and yellow warblers recognized that

cowbird eggs were not theirs. Many robins removed cowbird eggs from their nests. Yellow warblers built second nests on top of their first, covering a cowbird egg and any of their own eggs that had been laid before the cowbird egg. If a cowbird laid an egg in the second nest, the warbler built a third, even a fourth, creating two-, three-, four-level nests. Cowbirds aren’t lazy. They’ve just adapted to a way of life, first to following herds of buffalo, then to following herds of cattle, then to life on farms where there were cows, then anywhere, it seems. I know that. But I still feel sorry for a song sparrow feeding a nestling bigger than it is.


Prison guards who were stabbed are out of hospital MICHIGAN CITY (AP) — Two correctional officers who were wounded when an inmate stabbed them at the Indiana State Prison have been released from the hospitals where they were treated for their injuries, a prison spokeswoman said. One of the prison guards was injured so severely in the Thursday night incident he had to be flown to an Indianapolis hospital. Prison spokeswoman Pam James said he has since been released. The other guard was treated at a Michigan City hospital and returned to work later that night. James didn’t release the officers’ names. She said the inmate, Terrance Swann, attacked the officers in a general population cell house. The maximum-security prison has been on lockdown since the stabbings, James told The (Munster) Times for a

story Sunday. Swann, 34, is serving a 130-year prison term for two murder convictions stemming from a 1999 home invasion in Indianapolis. He’s not due to be released until 2066. Swann was moved to the nearby Westville Correctional Facility after the guards were stabbed. The LaPorte County Prosecutor’s Office will decide on any new charges against Swann. “It’s tragic that any incident would happen,” James said. “But it’s great to know that both officers have been released. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.” The incident was the first in years at the state prison involving correctional staff being assaulted, she said. “There’s been an outpouring of sympathy from fellow officers,” James said.

County warned about crowded jail VALPARAISO (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana is putting increasing pressure on a northwestern Indiana county to relieve its jail overcrowding. Overcrowding at the Porter County Jail is unconstitutional and places the county at risk for litigation, ACLU attorney Kenneth Falk said in a letter to Elizabeth Knight, an attorney for the county. Falk said he notified the Indiana Department of Correction about the overcrowding. If the DOC determines standards are not being met, it can give the county recommended solutions. If the county fails to make a good faith effort to resolve the problem within six months, the DOC may restrict use of the jail through court action or have a grand jury examine the facility, The (Munster) Times reported Sunday. Falk’s letter echoes concerns raised by the National Institute of Corrections last fall and the state DOC in July, Porter County Commissioner President John Evans said in an Aug. 15 letter to the Porter County Council. The NIC recommended the county take immediate steps to open a third pod, which has remained unused since the jail opened 11 years ago. The ACLU’s July 30 tour of the jail resulted from inmates’ complaints, Evans said. Porter County Sheriff Dave Lain said Falk “said what I’ve been saying all along.” Lain is seeking 11 new jail officers in next year’s county budget, including nine needed to staff the third pod. Porter County Councilman Jim Biggs said he’s prepared to support the spending necessary to open the third pod. The number of inmates housed in the jail, and its capacity, was not available Sunday. The ACLU recently sued the Vigo County Jail in Terre Haute because of overcrowding.

Excise police arrest hundreds at events TERRE HAUTE (AP) — Indiana State Excise Police say they arrested 365 people across the state over the weekend on alcohol-related charges and other offenses. Police say they arrested 254 people at Scheid Diesel Extravaganza in Terre Haute this weekend. They arrested 105 people for underage possession or consumption of alcohol, including 21 juveniles less than 18 years of age. Others were charged with providing alcohol to a minor, operating while intoxicated, drug offenses, criminal recklessness and open container violations. Officers also arrested 93 people in Bloomington over the weekend. They included 56 people cited for underage possession or consumption of alcohol, including 20 charged with possession of false identifications. Officers also arrested 18 people in Muncie this weekend, including 17 people for illegal possession or consumption of alcohol.




Work crews unearth signs of state’s first prison JEFFERSONVILLE (AP) — Remnants of Indiana’s first state prison and other artifacts dating to the state’s early years have been uncovered as part of a project to build a bridge linking southern Indiana to Kentucky. The discoveries include flint used to ignite Revolutionary War-era rifles and foundations, trash pits and drains associated with the penitentiary, along with

animal bones that are believed to be from food fed to prisoners. Andrew V. Martin, Indiana director of operations for the Lexington, Ky.-based Cultural Resource Analysts, told The Courier-Journal in Louisville, Ky., that his workers found the remains of the prison, which housed inmates from 1822 to 1847. Rick Jones, Indiana’s state archaeologist, said it’s

unusual to find artifacts that haven’t been disturbed by later development. A trash dump, houses and other buildings were eventually built on top of the prison site. “In terms of urban archaeology, it’s very important,” Jones said of the discovery. The items found at the site will be sent to the Indiana State Museum in Indianapolis once they’ve been analyzed, Martin said.

The discovery won’t hold up construction, even though the prison remnants made the site eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. Federal Highway Administration and Indiana state preservation officials decided that the artifacts can be removed and cataloged for study and there is no need to preserve the site itself. The original jail included 10 windowless cells in a

layout that resembled a modern motel, said Clark County historian Jeanne Burke. “That’s what it was like,” she said. “There were no windows, of course, and the only light that got in was from the doors. The doors were strapped with iron and there was a 3-inch square hole in the door — and that’s all the light and air the cells got.”

NEW YORK (AP) — Julie Harris, one of Broadway’s most honored performers, whose roles ranged from the flamboyant Sally Bowles in “I Am a Camera” to the reclusive Emily Dickinson in “The Belle of Amherst,” died Saturday. She was 87. Harris died at her West Chatham, Mass., home of congestive heart failure, actress and family friend Francesca James said. Harris won five Tony Awards for best actress in a play, displaying a virtuosity that enabled her to portray an astonishing gallery of women during a theater career that spanned almost 60 years and included such plays as “The Member of the Wedding” (1952), “The Lark” (1955), “Forty Carats” (1968) and “The Last of Mrs. Lincoln” (1972). She was honored again with a sixth Tony, a special lifetime achievement award in 2002. Her record is up against Audra McDonald, with five competitive Tonys, and Angela Lansbury with four Tonys in the best actress-musical category and one for best supporting actress in a play. Harris had suffered a

stroke in 2001 while she was in Chicago appearing in a production of Claudia Allen’s “Fossils.” She suffered another stroke in 2010, James said. “I’m still in sort of a place of shock,” said James, who appeared in daytime soap operas “All My Children” and “One Life to Live.” “She was, really, the greatest influence in my life,” said James, who had known Harris for about 50 years. Television viewers knew Harris as the free-spirited Lilimae Clements on the prime-time soap opera “Knots Landing.” In the movies, she was James Dean’s romantic co-star in “East of Eden” (1955), and had roles in such films as “Requiem for a Heavyweight” (1962), “The Haunting” (1963) and “Reflections in a Golden Eye” (1967). Yet Harris’ biggest successes and most satisfying moments have been on stage. “The theater

WASHINGTON (AP) — Mary-Pat Hector of Atlanta was operating much like a 1960s civil rights activist as she laid plans for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. She was constantly on the phone as she confirmed event details, tweaked the draft of the speech she gave at Saturday’s rally at the Lincoln Memorial and prepared for a presentation. Mary-Pat is 15 years old. Just as the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. led the Montgomery Bus Boycott at age 26, and Rep. John Lewis helped to lead freedom rides at 23, young Americans like Mary-Pat are not letting age get in the way as they seek more than a contributing role in the push for social reform. Young people are eager to influence this year’s March on Washington, says Jessica Brown, national coordinator for the Black Youth Vote coalition, which organized several youth events around Saturday’s march to the Lincoln Memorial. “Of course you have the seasoned people who are there, and they are always rightfully going to have their position,” Brown said. “But you’re starting to see the pickup of the youth saying, ‘This is our time, this is our moment, this is the opportunity we have to show the world and the nation, that we’re here and we’re ready to work and organize to get things done.’” In 1963, those “seasoned people” were A.

has been my church,” the actress once said. “I don’t hesitate to say that I found God in the theater.” The 5-foot-4 Harris, blue-eyed with delicate features and reddish-gold hair, made her Broadway debut in 1945 in a short-lived play called “It’s a Gift.” Five years later, at the age of 24, Harris was cast as Frankie, a lonely 12-year-old tomboy on the brink of adolescence, in “The Member of the Wedding,” Carson McCullers’ stage version of her wistful novel. The critics raved about Harris, with Brooks Atkinson in The New York Times calling her performance “extraordinary — vibrant, full of anguish and elation.” “That play was really the beginning of everything big for me,” Harris had said. The actress appeared in the 1952 film version, too, with her original Broadway co-stars, Ethel Waters and Brandon De Wilde, and received an Academy Award nomination.

Rustin, who birthed the idea of a Washington march to appeal for jobs and justice, and ultimately attracted 250,000 people. Today, the Rev. Al Sharpton and Martin Luther King III, who were 8 and 5 years old, respectively, in 1963, are the veterans who brought thousands to the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday. The King Center also has organized a ceremony on Wednesday, the actual march anniversary, when President Barack Obama will speak. Friday night, students and young adults gathered at Howard University in Washington for a mass meeting and rally ahead of Saturday’s march — activity patterned after the student rallies that were held before major demonstrations during the civil rights movement. Anthony Miller, president of the Howard University Student Association, said students recognize the historical significance, and some are using this moment to express their continuing anger over the shooting death of black Florida teen Trayvon Martin. “They want to be able to do something positive and something that will uplift this situation and really bring it to light,” Miller says. Students want “to effect a positive change and push this country in the right direction,” he said, “And I think this is an excellent opportunity.” Janaye Ingram, who runs the Washington office of Sharpton’s National Action Network, spent hours on the phone recruiting students.

It was one of those sunlit Saturdays in spring, so fresh that even my 3-yearold could feel the magic. I stood at the kitchen counter making sandwiches while he perched on a chair, swinging his feet, enjoying the feel of wearing the first shorts of the season. The plastic tips of his tennis-shoe laces clicked against the tile floor with a comforting rhythm. “Close your eyes, Mom,” he said. He whispered, “It sounds like we’re spitting watermelon seeds into the grass.” He was so right. Just like that, the sound of those clicking laces instead became puffed-up cheeks firing glossy seeds, translucent pink pulp splattering the ground, juice oozing down our chins. His simple words painted the picture. As a mother of toddlers, I was a consumer of writing, not a creator, but I soon found myself writing down the kids’ extraordinary discoveries (“Those

bugs fly slow enough that I can catch them! And their butts light up!”) and endearing phrases (“So you guys are Santa? How does Dad make it down the chimney?”). The words painted the picture and brought me back every time I read them. I was onto something. But it was someone else’s words that inspired me to action. My mom asked me to transcribe my grandfather’s letters from World War I. Written in pencil on fragile paper, they were fading with time and would soon be lost. I became engrossed in the picture of a Swedish farm boy with an easy smile and white-blond hair. A teen


who had rarely left town, donning a scratchy wool uniform and traversing the ocean to a place called Germany. The picture grew to include the black-haired beauty who waited for him at home, knitting socks and mailing paper-thin sugar cookies to Red Cross stations on the French border. A picture of my grandparents’ young lives and love emerged and grew into a book. After that, I became attentive to the pictures that words invoked, and found inspiration everywhere. I found a tackle box in the garage scribbled with crooked letters, “Screwdrivers and Secrets.” Oh, the places those two words took my imagination! (Never mind that my son said later, “You know that says ‘Screwdrivers and Sockets,’ right?”) I began to carry a little notebook in my purse and scribbled in it when words painted a picture in my brain. My friend described his high-school job, in charge of mixing instant potatoes with a five-gallon bucket and a garden hose. A

World War II POW from my church told me about the plane that was shot from under him, unluckily named “Borrowed Time.” My husband reminded me of a desolate Nevada motel where the wake-up call was a sharp rap on the door. I found that a word or phrase could paint that picture, and the game — the challenge — was to paint them into a story. Readers noticed, commenting that, “I felt like I could see it,” or “After I read it, I was right there!” I learned the writer’s lesson that words matter, and finding the right ones can be as easy as tuning in to the world around you. I used to think that inspiration was big. A bombshell. An epiphany. But it is more like a wafting smell, just there to be noticed. Like watermelon, screwdrivers, mashed potatoes or a wake-up call. Waiting for the writer in you to sniff, smile and paint 1,000 pictures with your words. (c)2013 by Chicken Soup for the Soul Publishing, LLC

FIRE: Blaze has consumed over 209 square miles FROM PAGE A1

in the remote wilderness area of Yosemite, but park spokesman Tom Medena said it’s edging closer to the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, the source of San Francisco’s famously pure drinking water. Despite ash falling like snowflakes on the reservoir and a thick haze of smoke limiting visibility to 100 feet, the quality of the water piped to the city 150 miles away is still good, say officials with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. The city’s hydroelectric power generated by the system has been interrupted by the fire, forcing the utility to spend $600,000

buying power on the open market. Park employees are continuing their efforts to protect two groves of giant sequoias that are unique the region by cutting brush and setting sprinklers, Medena said. The fire has consumed more than 209 square miles of picturesque forests. Officials estimate containment at just 7 percent. “It’s slowing down a bit, but it’s still growing,� Frederickson said. Fire lines near Ponderosa Hills and Twain Hart are being cut miles ahead of the blaze in locations where fire officials hope they will help protect the communities should the fire jump

containment lines. “There is a huge focus in those areas in terms of air support and crews on the ground building fire lines to protect those communities. We’re facing difficult conditions and extremely challenging weather,� Frederickson said. The high winds and movement of the fire from bone-dry brush on the ground to 100-foot oak and pine treetops have created dire conditions. “A crown fire is much more difficult to fight,� said Daniel Berlant of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. “Our firefighters are on the ground having to spray up.�

SYRIA: U.S. officials very skeptical of agreement FROM PAGE A1

eastern suburbs. Anti-government activists and Doctors Without Borders say that more than 300 people were killed in an artillery barrage by regime forces Wednesday that included the use of toxic gas. The government calls the allegations “absolutely baseless.� The suburbs hit in the suspected chemical strike, collectively known as eastern Ghouta, are under the control of rebel fighters, and regime artillery and warplanes have pounded the area for days. The U.N. inspectors will

have to traverse through both government-held and opposition-controlled turf to conduct their probe. Rebels have said they will help facilitate the visit. Under Sunday’s agreement with the U.N., the Syrian government “affirmed that it will provide the necessary cooperation, including the observance of the cessation of hostilities at the locations related to the incident,� U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said in a statement. In Washington, a senior administration official said the U.S. has “very little

doubt� that regime forces used chemical weapons in Wednesday’s attack, an assessment that was “based on the reported number of victims, reported symptoms of those who were killed or injured� as well as witness accounts and facts gathered by the U.S intelligence community. The official, who insisted on anonymity because of lack of authorization to speak publicly about the developments, was dismissive of the Syrian government’s agreement to grant access to the U.N. team, saying it was “too late to be credible.�


The Orland American Legion Riders are shown at Marion National Cemetery, where they and other Indiana American Legion Riders hope to raise funds to

purchase wreaths for the more than 9,000 veterans’ graves. Last year, 856 wreaths were purchased, in part through money raised at the Orland Legion.

RIDERS: Group raises money for area veterans FROM PAGE A1

ipating in charity rides when they can. The Orland Legion had an extremely successful charity run recently, raising $5,300 for the district’s homeless veterans. And Arnett, along with the other members, gets credit for beating the pavement for sponsors and promoting the Legion’s raffle of a grill and lawn furniture. The event was family-oriented, with visits to other Legion posts and a party at the Orland Legion when they returned. Other staples for the Orland Legion are Bike Night on Mondays, when Riders grill from 5-8 p.m. in the Legion parking lot, and the Rider Sliders meal from noon to 3 p.m. Saturdays, both open to the public and served by the Riders. Money earned helps Indiana veterans. Arnett says Legion activities are fun and varied, and are simply “being with your friends.�

They wear leather and patches, bandanas and other typical biker gear, but they are everyday people. “We get a stereotype put on us,� Arnett admitted, but added, “We’re riding for a cause.� Arnett, whose father was a veteran, is also the second vice president of the Legion’s women’s auxiliary, a post she took in June and will hold for a year. The Legion Riders director position started at the beginning of the year, and Arnett seemed favorable to serving another year if the members’ are in favor. “I’ve just been a member of the Riders since 2007,� Arnett said. Among their fundraising activities throughout the district — such as a charity ride Sept. 7 in Avilla for fallen Riders — Legion Riders escorts for military and Legion events. “We’ve done it in the snow. We’ve done it in the rain,� Arnett said. She was secretary of

the group for four years. Membership is at 61 and there is a core of around a dozen Orland Riders that are very active, said Arnett. Joe Scardino is assistant director; Billie Oliver, secretary; Tammy Charters, chaplain; Dan Camp, historian; Tonya Wells, treasurer; Sharon Bowers, store keeper. There are also ride coordinators — Tim Tiedeman and Bruce Menck — and a sergeant at arms, Ron Nichols. Arnett puts her heart into the Legion, her job and her family. She worked as a paralegal in Stout Law Group for eight years and now is court reporter under Judge Allen Wheat in Steuben Circuit Court. An Angola High School graduate, she has a son, Dustin, 21, attending Ball State University, and a daughter, Amber, 25, who lives at a Navy base in Norfolk, Va., with Arnett’s three grandsons, ages 6 to 4 months, while her husband is deployed overseas.

Adam Scott tees off on the fifth hole during the final round of The Barclays golf tournament Sunday in Jersey City, N.J.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Masters champion Adam Scott won The Barclays on Sunday after everyone around him did their best to lose it. Scott played bogey-free at Liberty National, making only two birdies on the back nine for a 5-under 66 that put him in the mix of a crowded leaderboard at the top. Turns out he was the only one who stayed there. “I can’t believe it, to be honest,” Scott said after winning the FedEx Cup playoffs opener. “I just played a good round today and I came in and

really didn’t think it had a chance. But obviously, things went my way a lot out there.” Justin Rose had a 25-foot birdie putt for the lead, ran it 5 feet by the cup and three-putted for a bogey for a 68. Kevin Chappell had a two-shot lead through 10 holes, only to play the next seven holes in 7-over par to close with a 76. Tiger Woods suffered a back spasm on the par-5 13th hole and hooked a fairway metal so far left that it landed in a swamp on the other side of the 15th fairway, SEE BARCLAYS, PAGE B2

Japan wins Little League SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — The victory lap around Lamade Stadium never gets old for Japan, nor does the players’ ritual of scooping up some souvenir dirt near the mound after another Little League World Series triumph. A perennial power in youth baseball, Japan rallied past Chula Vista, Calif., 6-4 on Sunday to win its ninth title and third in four years, the only disappointment in that recent span a loss in 2011 to Huntington Beach, Calif. Ryusei Hirooka won this one with a two-run double in the bottom of the fifth inning and Shunpei Takagi hit two solo home runs to help keep the Tokyo team undefeated in the tournament. “In all honesty, I’m really happy,” said Japan manager Masumi Omae, who also led the 2003 Japan team to the World Series title. “I definitely always dreamt about coming back to win again. To be able to trust the kids and their abilities is something I’m most proud about.” Facing one last threat in the sixth, the Japanese players erupted in glee, tossing Omae in the air near the mound after his slick fielders had turned a game-ending double play. “Wanting to be World Series champs is all we’ve talked about for the last two years,” Takagi said. “I was thinking, just get a hit at the plate. The outcome was two homers, so I was really happy.” It was the 14th championship game for Japan and 23rd for California, which has won seven World Series titles. Giancarlo Cortez had a two-run single and Grant Holman an RBI single for Chula Vista. Trailing 4-3 after Cortez’s clutch single in the fourth, Japan tied it on Takagi’s second homer and won it when Hirooka lined a 2-2 pitch down SEE JAPAN, PAGE B2


Spain’s Rafael Nadal practices Sunday for the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York. The

Open begins play today.

Nadal’s knee an Open question NEW YORK (AP) — Ask Rafael Nadal how his famously troublesome left knee is feeling on the eve of the U.S. Open, and he’ll balk a bit while formulating a response. “I am …” the 12-time major title winner began, haltingly, during an interview with The Associated Press. “You know …” he resumed, before smiling sheepishly and pausing again. Eventually, Nadal offered something of a complicated answer. “I have to say that I am very well, because the results have been amazing since I came back,” he said. “If I say something else, (it) will sound strange.” That’s because when the year’s last Grand Slam tournament begins Monday, none of the players setting foot on the blue hard courts of Flushing Meadows possesses as much momentum — or is in as fine form — as the No. 2-seeded Nadal. He’s won his past 10 matches heading into the first round against the 97th-ranked Ryan Harrison of the United States. Another past U.S. Open champion on Monday afternoon’s schedule is 2000-01 winner Venus Williams, a former No. 1 now ranked 60th who will be taking on recent Wimbledon semifinalist

and 12th-seeded Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium. At night, Williams’ younger sister Serena, the defending champion, plays 2010 French Open winner Francesca Schiavone of Italy, while 17-time major champion Roger Federer faces 62nd-ranked Grega Zemlja of Slovenia. The biggest curiosity when it comes to Nadal these days is how his knees will hold up. They’ve presented recurring problems for him over the years, particularly the left one, which kept him out of action from late June 2012 until February 2013. He missed the London Olympics, last year’s U.S. Open and this year’s Australian Open. “I feel more comfortable now than six months ago, that’s for sure,” Nadal said, then quickly added: “But I still have pain some days.” He was asked whether he thinks that might be the case for the rest of his career. “Hopefully not,” the 27-year-old Nadal said. “Hopefully not.” Hard courts could exacerbate the matter because of the pounding legs take on the unforgiving surface. Nadal himself maintains that there should be more tournaments played on other kinds of courts. Yet he’s been successful everywhere, winning the Australian Open and U.S. Open once each,

along with Wimbledon twice, to go along with his record eight championships on the slower red clay of the French Open. Nadal is 15-0 on hard courts in 2013, with his current run of victories built en route to titles at Montreal and Cincinnati. “He’s on a great streak right now. He’s playing fantastic tennis. He’s playing as well as anyone in the world right now,” said the 21-year-old Harrison, who will be making his Arthur Ashe Stadium debut against the tournament’s 2010 champion. “So I’m going to have to bring a really high level out.” Nadal’s rivals at the top of the game have taken note, too, of course. Summed up defending champion Andy Murray: “He’s going to be very difficult to beat here.” Top-seeded Novak Djokovic, who won the 2011 U.S. Open, said: “Nadal is definitely back, and he’s playing maybe the best tennis that he ever has played on hard courts. … He seems like he changed a little bit the game. He stepped in a little bit more. He knows that now he has to be a bit more aggressive than he usually is because of, I guess, his knees and everything and because hard court is not clay. It’s not his favorite surface; it’s faster. I’m sure he worked on that.”

Cincinnati Reds’ Shin-Soo Choo stands alone at home plate after striking out to end the eighth inning of a baseball game against the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday.

CINCINNATI (AP) — When Marco Estrada’s changeup is working, he’ll get a lot of out-front swings that result in weak popups. His fastball seems a lot harder to hit, too. The Cincinnati Reds rarely hit anything hard off Estrada on Sunday, managing only one single in seven shutout innings while the Milwaukee Brewers held on for a 3-1 victory. With the way Estrada was throwing, Caleb Gindl’s two-run homer was more than enough. His best pitch made a big difference. “The changeup kept working,

so I kept throwing it,” Estrada said. “I got away with a couple, but I kept it down most of the time.” The Brewers took two of three from the Reds, who remain right behind Pittsburgh and St. Louis in the NL Central race. Estrada (6-4) gave up Shin-Soo Choo’s leadoff single in the first inning, and then left the Reds swinging at nothing. He walked two, fanned a season-high nine and retired 10 batters on popups or fly balls — usually a risky thing in homer-friendly Great American Ball Park. SEE REDS, PAGE B2




Minor bounces Yankees avoid Tampa sweep back for Braves BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Mike Minor bounced back from the shortest outing of his career with seven strong innings, leading the Atlanta Braves to a 5-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday. Atlanta, which has the best record in the NL, salvaged the finale of the four-game set. Andrelton Simmons hit his 12th homer for the Braves, who closed out a 2-4 road trip. PHILLIES 9, DIAMONDBACKS 5 Roy Halladay pitched six effective innings in his return from the disabled list and John Mayberry Jr. homered for Philadelphia. Cody Asche and Roger Bernadina each had two RBIs for the Phillies, who have won six of their last eight games. A.J. Pollock had three hits, including a three-run homer, for Arizona, which has lost four of five. GIANTS 4, PIRATES 0 Ryan Vogelsong threw eight sharp innings for his first victory in three months, leading the Giants to the win. Pablo Sandoval had two RBIs as the Giants won their second straight to split the series with the Pirates. Buster Posey and Joaquin Arias each drove in a run. ROCKIES 4, MARLINS 3 Nolan Arenado hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the

sixth and Colorado held on for the win. Jorge De La Rosa (14-6) won his fourth consecutive decision, allowing three runs in five innings. De La Rosa improved to 7-0 with a 1.92 ERA in day games. PADRES 3, CUBS 2, 15 innings Nick Hundley hit a game-ending RBI single in the 15th inning to lift the Padres to a victory over the Cubs. Logan Forsythe set up the winning hit with a one-out single against Hector Rondon (2-1). He moved up on a groundout before Alexi Amarista was intentionally walked. Hundley then lined a clean single into center field and Forsythe scored easily, giving San Diego its third win in the last four games. Dale Thayer (2-3) wiggled out of a jam in the top half to get the victory. INTERLEAGUE TIGERS 11, METS 3 Miguel Cabrera hit a mammoth homer, Rick Porcello enjoyed a happy homecoming and the Tigers polished off a three-game sweep. Andy Dirks put Detroit ahead with a two-run shot, and the AL Central leaders improved to 12-5 in interleague play. They have won 34 of 49 overall, the best mark in the American League since July 2.

Curtis Granderson hit a sacrifice fly in the 11th inning and the New York Yankees avoided a three-game sweep by defeating the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 on Sunday. Alfonso Soriano started the winning rally with a one-out double off Jamey Wright (2-2). He stole third and came home on Granderson’s fly ball to center. Mariano Rivera, making his last regular-season appearance at Tropicana Field, received a standing ovation before getting the final three outs for his 38th save. The closer is planning to retire after this season. WHITE SOX 5, RANGERS 2 Jordan Danks homered after replacing the injured Avisail Garcia, backing a solid start by his brother John and helping the surging White Sox beat the Rangers. The White Sox took two of three from the AL West leaders, giving them eight victories in their last nine games. Josh Phegley went deep after hitting the winning single in the ninth inning the previous night. John Danks (4-10) outpitched Matt Garza (3-2), allowing two runs over six innings for his second straight win. A rare bright spot in a miserable season for Chicago was tempered by

BLUE JAYS 2, ASTROS 1 Mark Buehrle allowed one run over eight innings and the Blue Jays rallied for two runs in the ninth inning to snap a seven-game losing streak with a win over the Astros. Buehrle (10-7) allowed seven hits and struck out seven in winning his fifth straight. He has allowed seven runs over 27 innings, spanning his last four starts. Casey Janssen pitched the ninth for his 23rd save. Robbie Grossman had two hits to extend his hitting streak to 12 games for the Astros, who have yet to

sweep a series at home this season. Moises Sierra drew a bases loaded walk to tie the game at 1-1 in the ninth. Following Sierra’s walk, Chia-Jen Lo (0-2) struck out Kevin Pillar before Kevin Chapman induced a run-scoring groundout by Ryan Goins to put Toronto in front 2-1. INDIANS 3, TWINS 1 Drew Stubbs hit a tiebreaking, two-out homer in the eighth inning and the Indians overcame four errors to beat the Twins. Stubbs homered to dead center on a 0-1 pitch from Jared Burton (2-7) to snap a 1-all tie and lift the Indians to a crucial win in their quest a spot in the American

League playoffs. Joe Smith (5-1) pitched a scoreless eighth and Chris Perez worked the ninth for his 21st save. The Indians entered the day trailing Oakland by 2½ games for the AL’s second wild-card spot, but didn’t look like a playoff contender for much of the day. In addition to the four errors, the Indians made several other mistakes, both in the field and on the bases but managed to survive before starting a crucial road trip to Atlanta and Detroit that begins Tuesday. Nick Swisher added an RBI single in the eighth. ORIOLES 10, ATHLETICS 3 Chris Davis had two hits and collected his 118th RBI, and the Orioles hit three home runs in a rout of the Athletics. J.J. Hardy, Nick Markakis and Nate McLouth connected for the Orioles, who took two of three from Oakland to move within two games of the Athletics in the race for the second AL wild-card slot. Oakland had gone 105 straight games since April 25 without allowing 10 runs. Rookie Sonny Gray (1-2) absorbed the brunt of the damage, yielding six runs and eight hits in 3 1-3 innings. Scott Feldman (4-3) gave up one run in five innings for the Orioles.

row during one stretch. The Reds hit only one ball out of the infield from the second through the sixth innings, Zack Cozart’s routine flyout. Estrada is on his best surge of the season. He was sidelined for two months with a strained left hamstring, and has dominated since his return on Aug. 6. He’s 2-0 in four starts, allowing a total of only five earned runs. “He had great command of his changeup,” manager Ron Roenicke said. “He was throwing his curveball for strikes down in the zone and spotted his fastball well. When he’s got his changeup going and his curve going, they have to think about it and he can get his fastball by them.” Gindl has shown a knack for noteworthy homers. He became the first in Brewers history to have a game-ending homer as his

first in the majors, a solo shot in the 13th inning for a 1-0 win over Miami on July 21. On Saturday night, he had the first pinch-hit homer of his career, also a solo shot during a 6-3 loss to the Reds. He belted the fourth pitch he got from Reynolds over the wall in right for a 2-0 lead. “It feels great,” Gindl said. “It was nice to connect with another one.” It was Reynolds’ second start this season for the Reds. Reynolds, who was Colorado’s first-round pick in 2006, also was called up from Triple-A Louisville to pitch the second game of a doubleheader on July 23 in San Francisco. Reynolds pitched at Stanford and had a lot of friends and family on hand for the game, which added to his nerves.

BARCLAYS: Soft bed plagues Tiger Woods again he attributed to a soft bed in his hotel room — the second straight year he has had back issues from a mattress at this event. In a brief interview with CBS Sports, he said it was “hypothetical” when asked if he would compete in the Deutsche Bank Championship, the next playoff event that starts Friday on the TPC Boston. The tournament gives its charity money to Woods’ foundation. Woods already missed the AT&T National this year, which also benefits his foundation. “I just got off and I’m not feeling my best right now,” he said. Rose was feeling that great, either. He was in position to win the tournament with a birdie putt, and the U.S. Open champion did not want to leave it short. Instead, he knocked it by farther than he imagined, the ball stayed on the high side of the cup the whole way. “I got too aggressive,” Rose said. “I thought it was a putt to win the tournament. It’s tough to take.” Scott won for the second time this year, and at least put himself into the conversation for PGA Tour player of the year if he were to go on to win the FedEx Cup. He is No. 2 in the standings behind Woods, though the $10 million prize does not come into view until the Tour Championship. The first playoff event was packed with plenty of energy on a spectacular day across

from the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline. Five players had at least a share of the lead at some point in the final round. Woods put up a great fight despite his back injury. Scott played the final 24 holes without a bogey. Sunday also had some of the emotions found at Q-school for players whose season came to an abrupt end. And it was just as wild at the bottom. Only the top 100 players in the FedEx Cup advance to the second playoff event next week outside Boston. Geoff Ogilvy could have joined them except for missing a 2½-foot par putt on the final hole that ultimately knocked him out of the top 100. Camilo Villegas, at No. 110, thought he needed a 6-foot par putt on the last hole to advance. He missed it and was visibly angry. More than an hour later, Aaron Baddeley appeared to be a lock to advance to Boston despite being at No. 119. Baddeley, however, bogeyed his last three holes, missing a 5-foot par putt on the 18th. That knocked him out and put Villegas back in at No. 100. Scott didn’t miss anything. He made three straight birdies on the front nine, got into the mix with a 10-foot birdie on the 14th, and then chose to lay up with an iron on the 16th hole, which played about 290 yards. He holed a 15-foot birdie putt to tie for the lead, never realizing he would be there by himself when it was over.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Ex-Titan Bulluck arrested on robbery charge NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Former Tennessee Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck has been charged with felony robbery after a cab driver accused him of taking money during an argument. The driver was waiting outside a bar for a paid fare early Sunday when Bulluck approached him asking for a ride, police said in a statement. The driver said he declined and Bulluck grabbed him by his shirt, took a $100 bill and fled. In a statement to The Tennessean, Bulluck described the incident as a “misunderstanding between Bulluck me and the cab driver about getting my money back for a service not rendered.” “At 2 a.m., things could easily get lost in translation, but regardless of who was right or wrong, I regret putting myself in that situation,” he said. Bulluck retired from football in 2012 after playing 11 seasons in the NFL, 10 of them with the Titans. Bulluck worked as an analyst for WKRN-TV Saturday night on the Falcons-Titans game. He is scheduled to work for the Titans-Vikings preseason game on Thursday in Minneapolis. Station manager Stan Knott was quoted by The Tennessean as saying that a decision hasn’t been made on whether to replace Bulluck. Coach Mike Munchak said Sunday that hadn’t heard much of the incident and declined to comment. Munchak was Tennessee’s offensive line coach while Bulluck was a linebacker with the team.

Kiwis advance in America’s Cup match vs. Oracle SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Two sailing powerhouses that have spent the summer trading verbal jabs are finally set to meet in the ultimate grudge match — the America’s Cup. Emirates Team New Zealand zipped through a thick fog and past Italy’s Luna Rossa again Sunday, capturing the Louis Vuitton Cup challenger series 7-1 and advancing to the premier event against defending champion and bitter rival Oracle Team USA. The best-of-17 America’s Cup starts Sept 7. The Kiwis crushed the conditions and the competition in the challenger finals. The closest margin was 1 minute, 28 seconds, and Luna Rossa’s lone win came when Team New Zealand dropped out because the electronics system that controls the hydraulics of its catamaran failed. The Kiwis won the final race — the lightest wind of the series thanks to a fog that blanketed San Francisco Bay — by the largest margin: 3:20.

Former OSU QB to start final preseason game for Raiders ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Quarterback Terrelle Pryor will make his first start in the Oakland Raiders’ preseason finale Thursday night at Seattle while the team rests Matt Flynn. Coach Dennis Allen said Sunday that Flynn has been bothered by arm soreness throughout camp. The 28-year-old has been atop the depth chart since the beginning of training camp and started Oakland’s first three preseason games, though he has struggled to move the offense. Flynn has thrown two interceptions and been sacked three times. Pryor, who led four scoring drives after replacing Flynn in the second quarter Friday night in a loss to Chicago, has been the Raiders’ most effective quarterback so far. He also is the team’s second leading rusher with 83 yards on 11 carries.

Fleetwood takes Johnnie Walker title in playoff GLENEAGLES, Scotland (AP) — Tommy Fleetwood of England birdied the first playoff hole Sunday at the Johnnie Walker Championship to earn his first European Tour victory. Fleetwood also birdied the 18th to finish his round with a 70 and set up a three-way playoff with Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher (67) and Argentina’s Ricardo Gonzalez (70) after all three finished at 18-under 270 on the PGA Centenary course. Playing the par-5 18th again, Fleetwood narrowly missed an eagle putt from the fringe and then rolled in a three-footer for the win. Gallacher and Gonzalez both made par. Gallacher overcame a triple-bogey 7 on the 11th hole with a round that included five birdies and two eagles — including one on the 18th to make the playoff. “It’s just unbelievable as it’s been a lifetime goal to win on the European Tour,” Fleetwood said. “I’m sure there will be bigger and better goals in my career but this feels absolutely amazing right now.” Fleetwood went into the final round of his 50th Tour event sharing the lead on 16-under with Gonzalez but slipped well off the pace to be 1 over for his round through 15 holes. However, he then eagled the 16th and birdied the last. Fleetwood was watched by his parents and ailing 14-year old dog, Maisy. “She was diagnosed with cancer a couple of weeks ago,” Fleetwood said. “So given her condition, this week is pretty special.”

Egypt’s military makes a bad situation worse The military coup that toppled former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi’s Islamist government has proven as destructive to the nation’s hopes of democracy as the regime it replaced. In a government-backed bloodbath Wednesday on the streets of Cairo, governThe stakes in Egypt ment forces are too high for the demolished two camps United States to tiptoe set up by around its heavy-handed pro-Morsi demonstrainvolvement in arming tors. Hundreds what has turned out were killed and to be yet another thousands repressive regime. injured when soldiers fired live rounds into crowds of civilians, snipers targeted protesters and pro-Morsi militants killed police officers and others. As too often is the case, President Barack Obama’s response Thursday morning was timid. Again, the president stopped short of naming the takeover and crackdown a coup, and did not use what little leverage he has to ward off more carnage. While Obama canceled joint military exercises planned for next month with Egypt’s military, he did nothing to remind its leaders of the $1.3 billion in military aid the United States dispenses to Egypt every year. The stakes in Egypt are too high for the United States to tiptoe around its heavy-handed involvement in arming what has turned out to be yet another repressive regime. In his remarks, the president condemned Wednesday’s violence but warned that the U.S. should avoid becoming too entangled in Egypt’s latest upheaval. … The Egyptian military’s actions have shown in horrifying detail that American dollars are indeed at work in Egypt. Less clear is whether any of the aid is being used to support, as President Obama said Thursday, “a future of stability (in Egypt) that rests on a foundation of justice and peace and dignity.” In response to the massacres, Egyptian Vice President Mohamed ElBaradei tendered his resignation Wednesday, writing, “It has become difficult for me to continue bearing responsibility for decisions that I do not agree with and whose consequences I fear.” Pro-Morsi demonstrators bear their share of responsibility for the rapidly deteriorating situation across Egypt. Supporters of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood have burned Coptic churches, destroyed government buildings and engaged in murderous street fights with Morsi’s opponents. But the escalation of violence by the ruling military government only dims Egypt’s hope for representative government and radicalizes Egyptians on all sides of this conflict. Martyrs are being made in the streets of Cairo. … The United States’ financial support of Egypt’s military has shown little ability to curb the interim government’s abuse of its citizens. Aid can be as much a carrot as a stick, and President Obama has to be willing to use it as such.

Just clowning around? Yep, it’s just that WASHINGTON — Children, children. Here we are in the midst of a bloody clash in Egypt, more than 100,000 slaughtered in Syria, another looming debt crisis at home, and we’re consumed with angst over a rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask and invited the crowd to cheer for the bulls. There’s more. The clown has been fired. The president of the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association has stepped down. The Missouri State Fair is forcing clowns to undergo sensitivity training. The NAACP wants a Justice Department investigation into the clown act as a hate crime. And a Texas congressman has invited the clown to come on down. It seems impossible to take this seriously, yet seriously we must take it. Here we go. The clown act was offensive for one reason only: The president is black. No peep would have been made otherwise. But therein lies a difference and a distinction that deserves our unbiased scrutiny. A word about my own biases: I don’t like rodeos and I don’t like clowns. The former involve animals performing involuntarily and the latter are creepy. (I don’t like zoos and circuses, either.) But clowns are … clowns! It’s their job to poke the precious and touch the untouchable. They are inherently rude, irreverent, insulting, insensitive and sometimes salacious. Presidents, obviously, are fair game and every modern president’s face has been made into a mask. Still. There’s something wrong with this clown act. It isn’t a hate crime, which is a ridiculous charge, but it is something we need to wrap our minds around. First, let’s correct a popular mischaracterization. Wearing an Obama mask is not tantamount

to “blackface,” which is implicitly racist. When the president’s face is “black,” then the president’s mask is necessarily “black.” Unless, apparently, the person wearing the mask is white, as was the rodeo clown. Question: If a black person wears a George W. Bush mask, is he racist? The next logical question answers the first: What if the clown wears a Bush mask at an event attended primarily by blacks and KATHLEEN invites the crowd to cheer for the bulls? This unlikely event PARKER would feel offensive for the same reasons the recent clown event did. The Missouri rodeo audience was mostly white and the masked man in the ring was depicting a black man. This changes everything we think about humor, about clowns, and about good old-fashioned fun. Just as N-jokes are no longer funny to almost anyone, placing a black man in the arena like an unarmed gladiator isn’t amusing. As much as we aspire to racial harmony, we have centuries of history to overcome, including the mob-inspired lynching of black men, and this is what so many saw in the clown skit. Memory conquers humor. To be honest, my first reaction was: What a lot of bull. But then, as one must, I put myself in the other’s shoes. How would I feel if my face were on the clown’s mask and the arena were filled with men who cheered the beast who would trample and destroy me?

This is where political commentary becomes something else. Frightening. We all know what happens when the mob is empowered, especially when further emboldened by the excuse of humor. Few statements are more dishonest than “It’s just a joke.” I am the last person who would suggest that irreverence be censored or punished — or that clowns be sensitized. The excessively reverent are far scarier to me than those who would die laughing. Political satire is, in fact, a public service inasmuch as it channels aggression that otherwise might find bloody expression. But a civil society should find reprehensible even mock violence against a president, especially one who belongs to a minority that was once targeted for state-sanctioned violence. I sincerely doubt that the rodeo clown was motivated by racial hatred. I also doubt that President Obama much cared, except for how his daughters might feel about it. Or, to be cynical, about the degree to which public outrage accrued to his political advantage. I even give the benefit of the doubt to those who cheered the bulls as being inspired by political rather than racial animus. And, yes, reaction has been overblown to the point of silliness, but there are lessons, nonetheless. We could stand to tone down our political expression for the sake of all our daughters and sons, who bear witness to these events and must make sense of their world. Perhaps more to the point, we might try to take ourselves more lightly. KATHLEEN PARKER is a syndicated columnist with Tribune Media Services. She can be reached at

Budget goal: balanced and responsible In my column last month, I discussed the theory of economic gardening and the factors and resources Indiana needs to focus on making itself the logical choice for companies to locate and expand here, bringing more job opportunities to Hoosiers. An honest, balanced budget is one of those factors. Last session, we focused on setting and achieving goals: fiscal integrity, protecting taxpayers, investing in schools, maintaining infrastructure and boosting the economy. In order to achieve fiscal integrity, the budget reduces taxpayer funded debt by repaying loans early and paying cash for several long-planned university projects. This will save us nearly $160 million. We have also put about 12 percent of our operating budget in savings — a prudent action to take in case of another economic downturn. Responsible spending, check. We passed the largest tax cut in state history, saving Hoosiers nearly $650 million per year once all of the cuts are fully implemented. We no longer tax people for dying with a full repeal of the inheritance tax. Whatever

you earned during your life is yours. You paid taxes on it once, so there is no reason your family should be taxed again. Tax reductions, check. We invested in schools because we REP. BEN want our children to SMALTZ have the best opportunities to succeed. Our level of seriousness towards strengthening the state’s education system is evident as 63 percent of the budget is allocated toward K-12 education, higher education and teacher’s pensions. The work continues as we search for more efficient ways to educate students and measure not only the performance of our schools, but also the progress of the reforms created by our lawmakers. Investing in education, check. Maintaining our infrastructure, the topic of my last column, is critical to all of us. For every dollar spent on roads

in 2009, $6 went towards preserving roads already built, while only $1 went towards new construction projects. In 2010, the ratio dropped to $4 to $1, and in 2011, Indiana spent more money building new roads than maintaining what it already had. That, my friends, is not sustainable. So, we set the 2014/2015 budget to cut spending on new roads by more than half of the last budget, a savings of $385 million. That is where the $215 million in increased road funding for our existing roads, that I mentioned in my last column, came from. The end result was an overall reduction in spending of $170 million. Better roads with fewer dollars, check. Boosting our economy is a daunting goal. Government does not create jobs in the private sector, but it certainly can get in the way. I worked on House Bill 1002 with Speaker of the House Brian Bosma, Minority Leader Scott Pelath and fellow freshman Rep. Steve Braun to create the Indiana Career Council, which will align various participants in Indiana’s education, job skills development and career training system. We asked this council to match the education

Briefs • Girl who had double lung-transplant patient improvin PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The mother of a 10-year-old Pennsylvania girl recovering from two double lung transplants says the girl has been taken off oxygen and is doing well. Janet Murnaghan said Sunday that her daughter Sarah was taken off oxygen but still gets support from a machine that helps her breathe. Murnaghan says that in the last few days Sarah has started to walk around the hospital with the aid of a walker and has even gone outside briefly. The Newtown Square girl with end-stage cystic fibrosis received the transplants at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia after a federal judge intervened in her parents’ lawsuit challenging national transplant rules. Sarah’s first set of adult lungs failed after a transplant June 12. A second set was transplanted three days later.

Driver in deadly crash admits to drinking beer JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A pregnant woman and a child were among three people killed in an SUV crash that left six others injured in northern New Jersey, authorities said Sunday. The crash happened Saturday night on Route 15 near an intersection in Jefferson Township. Investigators said the vehicle suddenly swerved and left the roadway before overturning, ejecting several passengers. Lucila Colon, 62, and Tevia Booth, 11, died at the scene, while Julissa Colon, 36, died later at a hospital, Morris County prosecutors said. Julissa Colon was five months pregnant, and her fetus didn’t survive. It wasn’t immediately clear if the two Colons were related. The SUV’s driver, 37-year-old Luis Torres of Jersey City, was being held Sunday on $750,000 cash bail. He’s charged with three counts each of aggravated manslaughter and vehicular homicide and five counts of assault by auto. Jefferson Township police say Torres told them he and his passengers had attended a family gathering that day. Polie say Torres also admitted he had been drinking beer for most of the day.

People • Young boy with rare amoeba virus put on ventilator MIAMI (AP) — Family members of a 12-year-old boy who was infected by a rare and deadly amoeba say he’s on a ventilator. Zachary Reyna has fought the brain infection for weeks. Family members say he was infected Reyna while knee boarding with friends in a ditch near his family’s LaBelle home on Aug. 3. His uncle, Homer Villarreal, said doctors told family members on Saturday that the boy’s brain isn’t showing any activity. “The doctors did all they could do. It’s up to the good man upstairs,” he said, adding that the family was praying. “I just wish a miracle would happen.” Last week, the family had reported on a Facebook page that antibiotics had defeated the infection and tests showed negative activity from the amoeba. But on Sunday, Villarreal told The Associated Press that the infection had resulted in extensive brain damage.


Florida shooter was friends with one victim LAKE BUTLER, Fla. (AP) — A longtime employee of a Florida trucking company was once very close with his former boss, even described as his right-hand man. But police say Hubert Allen Jr. drove around Saturday and shot former co-workers and his onetime boss, killing the ex-employer and another man before turning a gun on himself. On Sunday, residents in this close-knit community near Jacksonville mourned and tried to piece together

what happened. Police didn’t release any new details or information on a possible motive. “Mr. Hubert was a real quiet guy,” said the Rev. Patrick Maxwell of the Victory Christian Center. “He wasn’t the type who would go around and say I have a grudge against anyone.” Maxwell said he visited Allen’s daughter and grandchildren after the shootings. The family was as surprised as the rest of the town and had no idea

what sparked the shootings, Maxwell said. Allen’s wife died in the late 1990s and he lived alone. Maxwell said he had developed a serious heart disease and his church had prayed for him recently. Allen, 72, didn’t attend the church, but his daughter and grandchildren did. It wasn’t yet clear why Allen stopped working for Pritchett Trucking Inc. On Saturday, Allen drove to a location owned by his former boss, Marvin

Pritchett. He shot and killed former co-worker Rolando Gonzalez-Delgado, 28, around 9 a.m., then went a short distance and killed Pritchett, 80, who founded the company in 1980. A few minutes later, Allen pulled over where another former co-worker was driving a farm tractor, exchanged words with him and fired a shotgun, authorities said. The victim, 66-year-old Lewis Mabrey Jr., was in good condition Sunday, hospital spokeswoman Nickie Doria

said. Allen then went to the company’s headquarters in Lake Butler and shot 44-yearold David Griffis in the stomach, the sheriff’s office said. Griffis was in critical condition Sunday. Allen killed himself at his nearby home. It was clear to everyone in town that Allen and Pritchett had a good relationship at one point. “You had the assumption, no, the conviction, that they were close,” Maxwell said.

U.S. overhauls how it recognizes Indian tribes KENT, Conn. (AP) — His tribe once controlled huge swaths of what is now New York and Connecticut, but the shrunken reservation presided over by Alan Russell today hosts little more than four mostly dilapidated homes and a pair of rattlesnake dens. The Schaghticoke Indian Tribe leader believes its fortunes may soon be improving. As the U.S. Interior Department overhauls its rules for recognizing American Indian tribes, a nod from the federal government appears within reach, potentially bolstering its claims to surrounding land and opening the door to a tribal-owned casino. “It’s the future generations we’re fighting for,” Russell said. The rules floated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, intended to streamline the approval process, are seen by some as lowering the bar through changes such as one requiring that tribes demonstrate political continuity since 1934 and not “first contact” with European settlers. Across the country, the push is setting up battles with host communities and already recognized tribes who fear upheaval. In Kent, a small Berkshires Mountains town with one of New England’s oldest covered bridges, residents have been calling the selectman’s office

with their concerns. The tribe claims land including property held by the Kent School, a boarding school, and many residents put up their own money a decade ago to fight a recognition bid by another faction of the Schaghticokes. Members of the state’s congressional delegation also have been in touch with the first selectman, Bruce Adams, who said he fears court battles over land claims and the possibility the tribe would open its own businesses as a sovereign nation within town boundaries. “Everybody is on board that we have to do what we can to prevent this from happening,” he said. The new rules were proposed in June by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, which invited public comment at hearings over the summer in Oregon, California, Michigan, Maine and Louisiana. President Barack Obama’s administration intends to improve a recognition process that has been criticized as slow, inconsistent and overly susceptible to political influence. Federal recognition, which has been granted to 566 American tribes, is coveted because it brings increased health and education benefits to tribal members in addition to land protections and opportunities for commercial development.


In this photo provided by the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, a member of the panda team at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo performs the first neonatal exam Sunday on a giant panda cub born Friday in Washington. The cub appeared to be in excellent health, zookeepers reported after a 10-minute physical exam.

Panda cub doing just fine WASHINGTON (AP) — The giant panda cub at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo appears to be in excellent health, zookeepers reported after a 10-minute physical exam Sunday morning. The panda, born Friday afternoon, weighs 4.8 ounces, is pink with white fur and wriggled and squealed loudly when it was taken away from its mother, zoo officials said. A second cub was stillborn Saturday night, but zookeepers were still overjoyed at the prospect of one healthy cub given that pandas are critically endangered and breeding them in captivity has proved difficult, especially in Washington.

The cub’s mother, Mei Xiang, gave birth to her only surviving cub, a male named Tai Shan, in 2005. Tai Shan enjoyed rock star status before he was returned to China in 2010. China owns the pandas at the National Zoo. The new cub had a full stomach, and veterinarians reported that it has been digesting its food, zoo spokeswoman Pamela Baker-Masson said Sunday. Its heartbeat is steady and its lungs appear to be functioning properly. Mei Xiang gave birth to a cub last year after several years of failed breeding, but the cub died after six days. Its lungs hadn’t fully developed and likely

weren’t sending enough oxygen to its liver. Following that disappointment, zookeepers changed their protocols for newborn pandas in consultation with Chinese breeders. The plan was for veterinarians to get their hands on the panda within 48 hours of its birth, and after two failed attempts on Saturday, panda keeper Marty Dearie was able to pry the cub away from Mei Xiang on Sunday morning. “All the external features looked perfectly normal, so the cub has been described as vibrant, healthy and active,” Baker-Masson said. “My colleagues were very, very happy. This is joyful news.”

‘Butler’ movie stays on top of box office race NEW YORK (AP) — “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” served up a second helping at the box office, topping the weekend with $17 million according to studio estimates Sunday. That was enough to lead all films on a late August weekend known as a dumping ground for studios following their summer blockbusters and before the start of the fall moviegoing season. Daniels’ historical drama about a long-serving White House butler, starring Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey, last weekend opened with $24.6 million for the Weinstein Co.

With franchise hopes, Sony Screen Gems has already started production on a sequel, again starring Lily Collins as a New York teenager who discovers she has mystical powers. Edgar Wright’s pub-crawl-gone-wrong comedy “The World’s End” opened with $8.9 million for Focus Features. That was a better start for “The World’s End,” which stars Simon Pegg, than Wright’s last film with the actor: 2007’s “Hot Fuzz.” It opened with $5.8 million. Playing in 1,549 theaters, “The World’s End”

did its business in less than half the theaters of “The Butler” or “Mortal Instruments.” Despite good reviews, Lionsgate’s home-invasion horror flick “You’re Next” opened weakly with $7.1 million. With a cumulative total of $52.3 million, “The Butler” is headed for a domestic haul of $100 million. It has followed the release pattern of another movie about race and domestic service: the 2011 drama “The Help,” also released in August. The Weinstein Co. hopes that “The Butler” will similarly lead to Oscar nominations. Paul Dergarabedian, analyst for box-office tracker,

attributed the success of “The Butler” particularly to the marketing power of Winfrey and a savvy choice of a release date with little competition. “This is a film that you wouldn’t want to open in June or July,” said Dergarabedian. “The release date that the Weinstein Co. picked absolutely paid off for them.” In its third week of release, Warner Bros.’ R-rated road trip comedy “We’re the Millers,” starring Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston, continued to thrive. It took in $13.5 million CHECK OUT THE LATEST POSTS ON

over the weekend, bringing its overall total to $91.7 million. Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine” became his widest release ever. Sony Pictures Classics expanded Allen’s drama of a ruined socialite starring Cate Blanchett to 1,283 theaters. It made $4.3 million over the weekend after earning more than $10 million in four weeks of limited release. The 3-D release of Universal’s “Jurassic Park,” which opened in North America in April, led the overseas market with $30 million over the weekend,





Weekend lover not ready for full time DEAR ABBY: I am a divorced woman in my mid-40s. I started dating again about two years ago, and shortly after, I met “Jed.” He is someone I’d love to spend the rest of my life with. We have been seeing each other for more than a year, and I’d like some sort of commitment. I have tried talking to him about it. All he’ll say is, “We’re committed and monogamous and that’s enough, so don’t start with me.” We spend Thursday through Sunday together. Jed says Monday through Wednesday is his time to be alone. We don’t talk or see each other during that time. We may email or text, but I’m not allowed to go to his house or call him. I have told him I don’t want to still be packing for weekend trips to his house — it’s 10 minutes away — when I’m 80.




A-WASTIN’: Do you realize that not once in your letter did you mention anything POSITIVE Jed does for you? He has told you directly that this is as committed as he’s willing to get. Men who “love” women don’t forbid them from coming to their home or calling; in fact, they WELCOME them. Jed doesn’t say “I love you” unless he is cornered because it appears he DOESN’T love you. Yes, you’re wasting your time. If you want someone to share living expenses so you can enjoy a better lifestyle, find yourself a roommate. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Eating won’t help alleviate chronic stress (also known as adrenaline). Epinephrine helps trigger the body’s fight-or-flight response. That’s a revved-up physiological state that temporarily puts appetite on hold. But the drip-drip-drip of chronic stress, day in and day out, is a different story. The ASK adrenal DOCTOR K. glands release another hormone cortisol, Dr. Anthony called which Komaroff increases appetite and may also ramp up the motivation to eat. Once a stressful episode is over, cortisol levels should fall. But if the stress doesn’t go away — or if your stress response gets

stuck in the “on” position — cortisol may stay elevated. Stress also seems to affect food preferences. Stress hormones increase a craving for high-fat, sugary foods. Once ingested, these foods may inhibit activity in the parts of the brain that control stress and related emotions. In other words, these foods really are “comfort” foods in that they seem to counteract stress. This may contribute to your stress-induced craving for them. The best way to counter chronic stress-induced eating may be to deal with your underlying stress. You’ll be killing two birds with one stone. Here are some suggestions for countering stress: • Meditation reduces stress and may help you become more mindful of your food choices. My friend Dr. Herbert Benson, a meditation researcher here at Harvard Medical School, described the

DEAR DOCTOR K: Why do I eat when I’m stressed out? Can you suggest ways to help me overcome this impulse? DEAR READER: Worry and pressure can cause a person to seek comfort, and one of the most immediate forms of comfort is “comfort food.” It’s good, and it’s also a temporary distraction from what you’re worrying about. But this is not the whole story. The effect of stress on appetite is a bit complicated. An acute stressor can actually shut down appetite. For our ancestors in prehistoric times, an acute stressor might have been an approaching lion. For us it might be an approaching automobile, a fire, or a medical emergency involving a family member. During such acute stress, the brain sends messages to the adrenal glands atop the kidneys to pump out the hormone epinephrine

I also never know how Jed feels about me. He never tells me he loves me, and if I say it, he’ll say it back very quickly like it’s an inconvenience. He doesn’t compliment me or act like I’m important to DEAR him at all. I’m ABBY financially stable but would have Jeanne Phillips a better lifestyle if I could share the bills with someone. Marriage is not important, and I have explained that to him, but I want a full-time commitment. Am I wasting my time? — TIME’S A-WASTIN’ IN GEORGIA DEAR TIME’S

following exercises to elicit the relaxation response: Select a word, mantra, prayer or thought. Focus your attention on it in a relaxed manner. When other, everyday thoughts intrude, let them go. Refocus your attention on step one in a relaxed and patient manner without frustration or judgment. Start by doing this for five minutes. Gradually increase the amount of time you spend on the exercises. • Low-intensity exercise may reduce cortisol levels. Some activities, such as yoga and tai chi, have elements of both exercise and meditation. While you’re working on lowering your stress, rid your refrigerator and cupboards of high-fat, sugary foods.

For Obama, the world looks far different than he ever expected WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly five years into his presidency, Barack Obama confronts a world far different from what he envisioned when he first took office. U.S. influence is declining in the Middle East as violence and instability rock Arab countries. An ambitious attempt to reset U.S. relations Obama with Russia faltered and failed. Even in Obama-friendly Europe, there’s deep skepticism about Washington’s government surveillance programs. In some cases, the current climate has been driven by factors outside the White House’s control. But missteps by the president also are to blame, say foreign policy analysts, including some who worked for the Obama administration. Among them: miscalculating the fallout from the Arab Spring uprisings,

publicly setting unrealistic expectations for improved ties with Russia and a reactive decision-making process that can leave the White House appearing to veer from crisis to crisis without a broader strategy. Rosa Brooks, a former Defense Department official who left the administration in 2011, said that while the shrinking U.S. leverage overseas predates the current president, “Obama has sometimes equated ‘we have no leverage’ with ‘there’s no point to really doing anything’.” Obama, faced most urgently with escalating crises in Egypt and Syria, has defended his measured approach, saying America’s ability to solve the world’s problems on its own has been “overstated.” “Sometimes what we’ve seen is that folks will call for immediate action, jumping into stuff, that does not turn out well, gets us mired in very difficult situations,” he said. “We have to think through strategically what’s going to

be in our long-term national interests.” The strongest challenge to Obama’s philosophy on intervention has come from the deepening tumult in the Middle East and North Africa. The president saw great promise in the region when he first took office and pledged “a new beginning” with the Arab world when he traveled to Cairo in 2009. But the democracy protests that spread across the region quickly scrambled Obama’s efforts. While the U.S. has consistently backed the rights of people seeking democracy, the violence that followed has often left the Obama administration unsure of its next move or taking tentative steps that do little to change the situation on the ground. In Egypt, where the country’s first democratically elected president was ousted last month, the U.S. has refused to call Mohammed Morsi’s removal a coup. The ruling military, which the U.S. has financially backed for decades, has largely ignored Obama’s calls to end assaults.

Colin Powell: Zimmerman verdict ‘questionable’ WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Secretary of State Colin Powell called the jury verdict that cleared the killer of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin “questionable” and urged President Barack Obama to speak more on issues of race during an interview that aired Sunday. The first black chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said the Martin verdict soon would be forgotten but said Obama — and all presidents — have a responsibility to discuss the nation’s history of racial injustice. Powell spoke as Washington marked the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s march that included the iconic “I Have a Dream” speech. “If Dr. King was here, I’m quite sure he would say, ‘Congratulations on all the progress that’s been made, but let’s keep going. The dream is not fully achieved yet,’” said Powell.

Front-runner emerges in NYC mayoral race NEW YORK (AP) — In the topsy-turvy New York City mayoral race that has been filled with largerthan-life characters, Bill Thompson has run a steady, under-the-radar campaign that has put him within striking distance of victory. His Democratic rivals have seized the tabloid headlines: Christine Quinn, who is bidding to become the city’s first openly gay mayor, opened up about her alcoholism and bulimia. Bill de Blasio has made his family, which includes his afro-sporting 15-year-old son and formerly lesbian wife, the centerpiece of his campaign. And Anthony Weiner’s political resurrection captivated the city only to have it collapse under a new wave of sexting revelations. And while the front-runners have changed repeatedly, the even-tempered, some would say charisma-challenged Thompson has remained consistently in third, just a few points behind the leaders.

“I think there were a lot of distractions over the summer, things that distracted us from the future of New York City,” Thompson told The Associated Press. “But I think it’s settled in now and people are focusing on the issues. “I am very comfortable with where I am,” he said. “You don’t want to peak in February, you want to peak on Sept. 10 and I think I am heading that way.” With little establishment support, Thompson came within five points of toppling Mayor Michael Bloomberg four years ago. But that showing did little to help him early in his 2013 campaign, which was marked by sluggish fundraising and sometimes confused messaging. And for much of the campaign, he has maintained the lowest name recognition among the major Democratic candidates — despite being the party’s last nominee and the lone African-American in the race.
