GOOD MORNING Feds allege $100M frauded in fuel scam INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Federal authorities have arrested six people on conspiracy, wire fraud and other charges in an alleged biofuels scam they say cost the government and investors more than $100 million. Indictments allege the defendants sold more than 35 million gallons of fuel as 100 percent biodiesel when it actually contained some petroleum diesel. U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett says Middletown, Ind.-based E-Biofuels purchased biofuels that were 99 percent biodiesel and 1 percent diesel from other companies and sold it at a higher price by claiming it was 100 percent biodiesel. Two other companies also allegedly were involved. Hogsett says customers were defrauded of more than $55 million, the Internal Revenue Service lost $35 million and investors lost tens of millions of dollars. Attorneys for the defendants were not immediately available for comment.

MSD, Fremont make grade State releases ISTEP scores for 2013 testing BY AMY OBERLIN

ANGOLA — The Metropolitan School District of Steuben County and Fremont Community Schools scored well on ISTEP tests taken last spring. The Indiana Department of Education released ISTEP achievement test scores for all school districts Wednesday. Superintendent Brent Wilson said he is “very pleased” with the results of tests taken by third- through eighth-graders in the spring. MSD students passed the tests at a rate of 79.5 percent in language, 82.7 percent in math and 73.5 on both portions — all rates above

the state averages. MSD was one of four districts in the northeastern Indiana area to achieve above-average scores; the others were Fremont Community Schools, DeKalb Central and Westview. Fremont students in grades 3-8 passed ISTEP tests at rates of 80.9 percent in English-language arts and 86.6 percent in math, with 76.6 percent of students passing both parts of the test. Initial scores were released to the MSD school board Tuesday night, though they had been embargoed from the public until Wednesday. Wilson said when the Department of Education released the information Wednesday,

the MSD scores were even better than originally reported. “I’m very, very pleased across the elementaries with the increase in math scores. I have to attribute that to some professional development,” said Cyndi Nusbaum, director of curriculum and instruction. Principals at Carlin Park and Hendry Park elementary schools, Sabrina Fritz and Kris Sine, identified a research-based math instructional model called Five Easy Steps to Balanced Math. The process, which focuses on problem-solving in computations, was provided districtwide with seminars in November and SEE ISTEP, PAGE A6

Ball State student hit by car while jogging MUNCIE (AP) — Police say a Ball State University student suffered head injuries when she was struck by a car while jogging near the campus. Muncie police say 20-year-old Emily Case of Columbus was hit Tuesday at an intersection crosswalk several blocks east of the campus. The Star Press reports her head hit the car’s windshield and the impact knocked her about 20 feet. Police Sgt. Bruce Qualls says Case suffered a concussion but no broken bones. She was taken to a Muncie hospital in serious condition, but was listed in fair condition Wednesday. WRTV reports the driver told officers she didn’t see Case because she wasn’t paying attention and drove through a stop light. The driver was ticketed for disregarding a signal.

NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market hit a record high Wednesday as investors cheered the Federal Reserve’s surprise decision to keep its economic stimulus program in place. Stocks traded slightly lower throughout the morning, but took off immediately after the Fed’s decision in the early afternoon. Bond yields fell sharply — their biggest move in nearly two years. The price of gold had its biggest one-day jump in four years as traders anticipated that the Fed’s decision might cause inflation. Fed policymakers decided to maintain the central bank’s $85 billion in monthly bond purchases, a program that has been in place since December 2012. The bond purchases encouraged borrowing by keeping interest rates low and encouraging investors to buy stocks by making bonds more expensive in comparison.


Cameron kicks off public capital campaign BY MIKE MARTURELLO

ANGOLA — Cameron Hospital Foundation kicked off its public capital campaign for construction of a new Cameron Memorial Community Hospital on Wednesday. And though the Campaign for Cameron drive had not gone public until Wednesday, it had already received nearly $1 million in announced gifts and pledges. A new, $47 million hospital is currently under construction adjacent to the existing Cameron campus in downtown Angola. The hospital is expected to open in August 2014 with completion — which includes razing part of the existing facility and final site work — in September 2015. “Today is the kickoff for the broader community,” said Greg Burns, Cameron’s president and CEO. “Our campaign thus far has been very successful,” said Laura Lutterbeck, Cameron’s community relations director and president of the Cameron Hospital Foundation. The new hospital is being financed by a $37 million loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, with another $10 million guaranteed by the USDA and provided by Farmers and Merchants State Bank.

The new hospital will end up being 126,400 square feet. Of that, 110,470 is new space and 15,930 will be renovated space (mainly the current emergency room area). “As a critical access (hospital) 126,400 is fairly big,” Burns said. The new campus will approximately double in size, growing to just over 13 acres. The new hospital will contain 25 beds, 18 of which are private for medical and surgical patients. There will be two special care patient rooms and five private, family friendly post-partum rooms. In addition, there will be three rooms for labor and delivery of babies. All rooms are private. There will be three large operating rooms, two outpatient procedure rooms and 12 private ambulatory surgery patient care rooms. The radiology department will be all contained in the same area, as opposed to the current arrangement where facilities are spread out over the hospital. The emergency room is going to be expanded and rehabilitation services will be on the ground floor. There will be a non-denominational chapel and large, accessible community education facilities. For information about the Campaign for Cameron, call 665-2141, ext. 5337.

ANGOLA — A 70-yearold Hudson man is facing up to 50 years in prison for alleged child molesting. Robert L. Harty was arrested Tuesday and arraigned Wednesday on a Class Harty A felony charge of child molesting. He is being held in the Steuben County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail. If he makes bail, he is to have no contact with the 5-year-old girl he allegedly molested. A pretrial conference is set for 11 a.m on Nov. 18 and a jury trial is on the Steuben Superior Court calendar for Jan. 9.

financial situation. Harty receives Social Security for an income. Harty babysat three children, ages 1-5, for a family that works second shift, said court documents. The 5-year-old girl reported to Steuben County Sheriff’s investigators that Harty touched her sexually on at least two occasions and that once he put her hand on his penis. Court documents also describe an incident in which Harty engaged in contact with the girl that from her description may have been sexual in nature. While Harty said he cannot read, after McEntarfer reviewed the charges by videoconfer encing equipement between the Steuben County Jail and Steuben County Courthouse, Harty said he understood the allegations. The charge pertains to an incident that allegedly occurred at Harty’s home on Sept. 12.

Regional Roundup • Driver killed in crash with combine HUNTINGTON (AP) — A combine and a car collided on a northeastern Indiana highway, killing the driver of the car. The Huntington County Sheriff’s Department says the man, identified by the Huntington County Coroner as William Reed, 83, was driving the large farm harvesting vehicle across U.S. 24 at an intersection with a county road when the crash happened Tuesday evening. The combine’s front end hit the driver’s side of a car traveling on U.S. 24 and pushed it across the road just outside Huntington. The county coroner says 57-year-old Jeffery DeHaven of Warren was pronounced dead at the scene about 20 miles southeast of Fort Wayne. No one else was in the car. The combine driver wasn’t hurt and told officers he didn’t see the car approaching.

Activists say doctor didn’t report abortion on time FORT WAYNE (AP) — Anti-abortion activists say a doctor didn’t report a 13-year-old’s abortion within three days, breaking state law. Allen County Right to


Life Executive Director Cathie Humbarger said she and sidewalk counselor Evelyn Witte of Fort Wayne filed complaints Wednesday with the attorney general and the Indiana Medical Licensing Board alleging Dr. Ulrich Klopfer performed the abortion Feb. 7 at the Fort Wayne Women’s Health Organization but didn’t report it to the Indiana Department of Health until July 25. Under state law, abortions on patients under age 14 must be reported within three days to the health department and the Indiana Department of Child Services. Sex with a girl under 14 is legally considered child molesting, no matter the male’s age. A call to the clinic seeking comment was hung up on.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The former superintendent of the Indianapolis Public Schools has been named interim president of Indiana’s only predominantly black college. Martin University announced Wednesday that the school’s trustees had picked Eugene White to take over immediately as leader of the college on the east side of Indianapolis. White is replacing George Miller, who announced last month he was resigning after about a year and a half as Martin’s president. The private school primarily serves low-income, minority students and has an enrollment of less than 1,000. Founded in 1977, it was named for Dr. Martin Luther King.

Real test for education will be in lessons learned Indiana can emerge wiser from the uproar surrounding its A-to-F school rating system. Improvement can come through lessons learned. A report issued last Friday assessed controversial changes to the system made last fall by former Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Bennett and his Department of Education staff. The review, ordered by Republican leaders of the Indiana Legislature, was The new ratings formula conducted by should be tested as a a bipartisan duo of pilot program for a John Grew year, allowing schools and Bill Sheldrake to provide feedback, so — veterans past appropriate adjustments of Democratic and can be made. Republican administrations. It serves as an explanation of how Bennett and his team responded to an initially low grade for an Indianapolis charter school hailed by Bennett as a model for success. The reviewers concluded that switching of the school grade for Christel House Academy from a C to an A triggered a systemwide change that was applied evenly to all schools. They saw Bennett’s urgent push to raise the Christel House grade — bogged down by low algebra test scores — as a “plausible” maneuver to “save the credibility of the new accountability model and a desire to treat a recognized good school fairly.” Bennett and his supporters viewed that conclusion as vindication from critics. That vindication indeed may be appropriate, in terms of his application of the changes made to the ratings system just before the A-to-F scores were released. However, much of the criticism of the grade changing — revealed through emails obtained by The Associated Press — centered on the potential influence of the Christel House founder, a prominent donor to the political campaigns of Bennett and other Indiana Republicans. The Grew-Sheldrake report did not delve into that concern, but stuck to the fairness of the method used to apply the changes. “Any further motivations underlying these actions are beyond the scope and documentation of this report,” they wrote. The various sides in the school-reform debate have drawn their own conclusions. Bennett said, “I am pleased with this vindication, not for me, but for the work of my colleagues at the Department of Education and for the 1.1 million Indiana students that have benefited and will continue to benefit from a clear and rigorous school accountability system.” Grew and Sheldrake said their report neither exonerates, nor condemns Bennett (who resigned this summer as Florida schools commissioner amid the controversy) but explains how the changes were made. Their report recommends more changes be made — to the system itself. An overhaul of the A-to-F school ratings, initiated by the Legislature, was already underway before the grade-changing flap. The Grew-Sheldrake recommendations stand as quality-control standards for that overhaul. One meaningful criticism of reforms enacted under former Gov. Mitch Daniels and Bennett was that landmark changes kept coming so fast the dust never settled, and the effectiveness and impact of one policy could not fully be gauged before the next wave of changes hit. Grew-Sheldrake cited the need to slow down and evaluate the implementation of a new school ratings system. The reworked formula should be transparent, easier to understand, they said. The existing formula rightly drew complaints over its complexity. Grew and Sheldrake also recommended “extensive” input from “experts and practitioners from the education community,” which would include folks who actually work in classrooms. The plan must be acceptable to average Hoosiers. The new ratings formula should be tested as a pilot program for a year, allowing schools to provide feedback, so appropriate adjustments can be made. And, finally, the Legislature, governor and state schools superintendent, now Glenda Ritz, need “closer interaction,” the report stated. Each idea reflects a lesson learned, perceived vindication aside. Ideally, the real victors in this episode will be Hoosier children and their families, whose schools will operate under a well-vetted, comprehensible accountability system.

After 50 years with Kraft, she doesn’t think retirement Betty Pippenger grew up on a farm near Waterloo and graduated from Hamilton High School in 1963. She didn’t want to go to college so she applied for a job at area industries. Kraft Foods was advertising job openings at its Kendallville facility. An advertisement in INSIDE the News-Sun “Help COMMENT said: Wanted. Kraft Foods. Male and producDennis Nartker female tion depts. High School education required. Good starting wage. Excellent fringe benefits for qualified applicants.” She applied at Kraft Foods and was hired. Her first day was Sept. 3, 1963, in production hand-packing bags of caramels. She’s still there. Now 68, Pippenger resides in Churubusco and gets up each morning at 3 a.m. and drives the 25 miles to Kendallville to start her eight-hour, sometimes longer, shift at the Kraft Foods plant at 151 W. Ohio St. She currently works 12 days straight followed by two days off. There have been times when she has worked 19 straight days followed by two days off. She’s been doing this for more than 50 years. Pippenger is the second longest serving Kraft Foods employee in the company’s world wide operations. Think about it. When she started at Kraft Foods, gasoline was 25 cents a gallon, the minimum wage was $1.25, a Hershey bar was 5 cents. “Blue Moon” by Bobby Vinton, “Dominique” by the Singing Nun, “Hey Paula” by Paul and Paula, “Sugar Shack” by Jimmy Gilmer and the Fireballs and “Little Deuce Coupe” by the Beach Boys were playing on WAWK.

Pippenger likes to dance. She likes to have a good time staying out late dancing at hangouts in Fort Wayne.

• The Yankees were leading the Twins in the American League race by 13 1/2 games, and the Dodgers were leading the National League by five games over the Cardinals. There were racial riots in Birmingham, Ala., and the U.S. Senate was debating a nuclear test ban treaty with the Soviet Union. The Kendallville High School football team was preparing for the annual season opening jamboree with Garrett, Auburn and Angola. “Flipper” and “Beach Party” with Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello were playing at the Strand Theatre, and “Spartacus” with Kirk Douglas was showing at the Hi-Vue Drive-In. J.C. Penney’s in downtown Kendallville had a sale on high top gym shoes for $4.99. Rimmell’s Hat & Dress Shop had women’s stretch pants for $9.98, and a 10-ounce can of coffee cost 99 cents at the A&P. American Bandstand with Dick Clark moved to California from the east coast and shown on Saturdays on ABC. Bob Orndorff shot a 70 for a one-stroke victory over Bob Kropp at the annual Kendallville Country Club Labor Day golf tournament. Pippenger’s starting pay at Kraft’s was $1.98 an hour. She’s still there earning a full-time paycheck, and contributing to Social Security instead of collecting it. “When I started, they only made caramels at the plant, and I hand-packed them. That was the only job women could do

then, but now we can work in any part of the plant,” she said. Over the years Pippenger has worked with marshmallows, marshmallow bits and even with caramel in what’s called the knockout room. She lifted heavy, elongated pans of freshly cooked caramel, slammed them on tables to remove the caramel before it’s sent to the extruder machines. For the past 23 years, Pippenger has worked with coloring marshmallows. She handles up to 45-pound containers of 70 to 80 varieties of coloring for the marshmallows’ production. When asked about retirement, Pippenger said she doesn’t think about it. “I like my job. I like who I work with and where I work,” she said. Pippenger has enjoyed good health and rarely is too ill to come to work. “I don’t get bored.” She is one of 7.6 million Americans 65 and older still working, according to an AARP report. With no visible gray hair or signs of physical ailments that would slow her down, she could be mistaken for a woman in her 50s or younger. I jokingly challenged her to an arm wrestle after the interview. She was game. I’d probably win with leverage. I’m much taller with longer arms, but there was no arm wrestle. It was only a joke, Mrs. Pippenger. How has she managed to carry on for so long in a full-time factory production job when most people would have retired? What she enjoys in her spare time may have something to do with it. Pippenger’s husband Dave passed away a few years ago, and she doesn’t like to spend a lot of time alone in her house. When the sun goes down, she’s out the door. Pippenger likes to dance. She likes to have a good time staying out late dancing at hangouts in Fort Wayne. “I like to dance with my 16-year-old granddaughters in the garage,” she said. “I go out dancing with my 23-year-old granddaughter


Betty Pippenger, 68, recently celebrated 50 years with the Kraft Foods plant in Kendallville.

at clubs in Fort Wayne. I dance with guys much younger than me who can’t believe I’m her grandmother.” She was recently at a dance where it was so dark dancers used glow sticks to see their way. “It was loud. The place was vibrating. I loved it. I can keep with them,” she laughed. Sometimes Pippenger stays out so late, she gets no sleep before she has to go to work. Pippenger has two children, five grandchildren and a great-grandchild due next month. Kraft Foods employees in Kendallville celebrated her 50-year achievement on Sept. 5 with a potluck and cake. Kraft Foods gave her a catalog to choose a free gift for her 50 years with the company. “We are so fortunate to have Betty at Kraft. She is an outstanding employee, and her spirit and enthusiasm are a wonderful example to all of us,” said plant manager Mike Hughes. He is retiring next week after 32 years with Kraft. Inc. He was four years old when Pippenger started at Kraft Foods. “I’m like the energizer bunny. I just keep going,” she said. DENNIS NARTKER is a reporter for The News Sun. He can be reached at

A trip choosing shoes is not fit for the eyes Those first few steps in the morning are surprisingly painful. It feels as if someone has hammered a 10-pound nail into the middle of your heel. Usually, it goes away quickly, and as long as you keep moving, everything’s fine. If you sit down to watch a little TV and suddenly get up to answer the phone, you will fall flat on your face. Again, for about three steps your feet feel as if someone has beaten them with a club. The diagnosis is usually plantar fasciitis, meaning the ligament along the bottom of the foot is no longer doing its job correctly. Treatment is all over the map. Surgery, rest, massage, orthotics, cortisone injections, stretching, arch supports, acupuncture, aspirin, ibuprofen, cold therapy, heat therapy, always go barefoot, never go barefoot, sleep with a splint, ad infinitum. Everyone I know seems to have had it or has it, and they all have different recommendations. I decided to go with the simplest plan first: to buy some shoes with better arch support than the loafers I usually wear. Sue always told me they were bad for my feet but I always had the same answer: “If you play tennis, you wear tennis shoes. If you golf, you wear golf shoes. If you run, you wear running shoes. If you bowl, you wear bowling shoes. So you can see why I wear loafers.” But it was time for a change. I hobbled down

to the shoe store to invest in a pair of trainers that would offer my foot all the love and support it needed. From now on, my aching feet would be caressed all day long by the finest combination of science and the shoemaker’s art. Shoes that would magically make all my problems disappear and let me dance the fandango once again. OK, so I never danced the fandango. I don’t even know what a fandango you get my drift. JIM is, but But the shoe store didn’t. They seemed to think I was MULLEN auditioning for a part in “SpongeBob SquarePants.” Each pair of sports shoes was more cartoonish than the last. It’s bad enough that the heel on one had visible springs, but it was also in lime Jell-O green with orange DayGlo stripes. I’m sure they will look swell on the villain in the next Superman movie, but I plan to wear them around the house, not with my matching superhero cape. Here was a nice pair, for only $168, with good arch support, a soft heel and room for my toes. If only it came in black or white or brown and not in “safety orange” with fluores-

cent white stripes and a blinking light on the back. The soles were 3 inches thick in Hulk green. As I recall, the Hulk goes barefoot most of the time. It seems even he wouldn’t be caught dead in these things. There was one pair of all-white trainers that caught my eye. Literally, it caught my eye because it was so big it hit me in the face. This thing was the size of a snow shoe. Instead of laces, it had Velcro straps, one of which was undone and flapping out of the eye-level display. Not only do my feet hurt, now I think I have a detached retina. I would normally like an all-white trainer, but the only thing you could wear with these that would make sense at all would be giant, white, four-fingered Mickey Mouse gloves. Surgery is starting to look better and better. Is there some good reason that modern sports shoes look so silly? Is there no room for something that doesn’t make you look like you were the life model for Homer Simpson? I finally settled for some over-the-counter inserts in my loafers and they seem to help a bit, especially in the daytime. But if they made noncartoon shoes, I’d have bought them.

Parties dug in as shutdown looms WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans vowed Wednesday to pass legislation that would prevent a partial government shutdown and avoid a historic national default while simultaneously canceling out President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, inaugurating a new round of political brinkmanship as critical deadlines approach. Obama swiftly condemned the effort as attempted political extortion, and the Republican-friendly Chamber of Commerce pointedly called on lawmakers to pass urgent spending and borrowing legislation — unencumbered by debate over “Obamacare.” The two-step strategy announced by House Speaker John Boehner marked a concession to his confrontational rank and file. At the same time, it represented a challenge to conservatives inside the Senate and out who have spent the summer seeking the votes needed to pull the president’s cherished health care law out by its roots. They now will be called on to deliver. “The fight over here has been won. The House has voted 40 times to defund, change Obamacare, to repeal it. It’s time for the Senate to have this fight,” said Boehner, an Ohio Republican.

As outlined by several officials, Boehner and the leadership intend to set a House vote for Friday on legislation to fund the government through Dec. 15 at existing levels while permanently defunding the health care law. The same bill will include a requirement for Treasury to give priority to Social Security and disability payments in the event the government reaches its borrowing limit and cannot pay all of its obligations. A second measure, to be brought to the floor as early as next week, would allow Treasury to borrow freely for one year. That same bill is also expected to be loaded with other requirements, including the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline from Canada to the United States, a project that environmentalists oppose and that the Obama administration has so far refused to approve. Other elements will reflect different Republican budget priorities, including as-yet-undisclosed savings from health care and government benefit programs and steps to speed work on an overhaul of the tax code. Prospects for passage of the two bills are high in the House, where Republicans have a majority and leaders pronounced the rank and file united behind the strategy. But both measures are

Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., chairman of the Rules Committee, speak to reporters about the economic consequences of a debt ceiling default during a news conference Wednesday.

certain to be viewed as non-starters by majority Democrats in the Senate. Some Republicans appeared to concede during the day that the legislation that eventually reaches the White House will leave the health care law in effect. “I don’t think that any reasonable person thinks there’s anything to be gained by a government shutdown,” said Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas. “Rather than a shutdown of government, what we need is a Republican victory in 2014 so we can be in control. I’m not sure those are mutually compatible.”

But a fellow Texas Republican, Sen. Ted Cruz said it was important to hold fast. He said Democrats appear at present to have the votes to restore funds for the health care law, adding, “At that point, House Republicans must stand firm, hold their ground and continue to listen to the American people.” Given the differences, it is unclear how long it will take Congress and the White House to clear the measures, and how close the government will come to a partial shutdown or a market-rattling default over the next three weeks.

NEW YORK (AP) — Starbucks has always set itself apart by taking strong positions on progressive political issues. Now that reputation has landed the company in the middle of the heated national debate over gun laws. Today, the Seattle-based company will run full-page ads in major newspapers, telling customers that guns are no longer welcome in its cafes. But Starbucks is stopping short of an outright ban, exposing the fine line it needs to walk on a highly divisive issue. “We are not pro-gun or anti-gun,” CEO Howard Schultz said in an interview, noting that customers will still be served if they choose to a carry gun. The move comes as the company has finds itself at the center of a fight it didn’t start. In recent months, gun control advocates have been pressuring Starbucks to ban firearms, while supporters of gun rights have celebrated the company’s decision to defer to local laws. About a month ago, Starbucks shut down a store in Newtown, Conn. early to avoid a demonstration by gun rights advocates. They had planned to stage a “Starbucks Appreciation Day,” bringing


A commercial cargo ship made its successful debut Wednesday, rocketing toward the International Space Station and doubling the number of NASA’s private suppliers for the high-flying lab. Orbital Sciences Corp. launched its first-ever supply ship from Virginia’s Eastern Shore, the departing point for a NASA moonshot less than two weeks ago. “Look out ISS, here we come,” the company said in a tweet. The capsule named Cygnus — bearing 1,300 pounds of food, clothing and goodies for the astronauts — is due at the orbiting outpost on Sunday, following four days of testing. The Virginia-based Orbital Sciences is only the second business to attempt a shipment like this. The California-based SpaceX company has been

delivering station supplies for more than a year under a NASA contract. “If you needed more tangible proof that this is a new era of exploration, it’s right here, right now in Virginia,” NASA associate administrator Robert Lightfoot said at a post-launch news conference. Orbital Sciences’ unmanned Antares rocket — named for the bright red star — blasted into a clear sky from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility. A test launch in April went well. So did this one, with a camera on the rocket providing dramatic views of the coastline. The entire commercial effort dates back five years. It was Wallops’ second high-profile launch this month. On Sept. 6, the company took part in a NASA moonshot that dazzled skywatchers along the East Coast.

their firearms and turning the company into an unwitting supporter of gun rights. Support for guns runs counter to the Starbucks image. The warm feeling Starbucks customers get when they’re sipping lattes doesn’t always come from the coffee. For some, part of the brand’s attraction is the company’s liberal-leaning support of gay marriage and environmental issues. At least some of Starbucks’ more than $13 billion in annual revenue is derived from people who agree with the company’s views. But with some 7,000 company-owned stores across the country — in red states and blue — Starbucks is being forced to tread carefully with its special blend of politics and commerce. Many states allow people to carry licensed guns in some way, but some businesses exercise their right to ban firearms. They can do so because their locations are considered private property. Starbucks isn’t the only company that doesn’t ban guns, but it has become a target for gun control advocates, in part because of its corporate image.

Fremont beats Indiana average

April. The process is being used again this school year, said Nusbaum. Third-grade scores went up across the district’s four elementary schools, and Nusbaum said the middle school was “status quo.� As far as language scores, Nusbaum said there has been an emphasis on reading at MSD. Literacy groups that meet for an additional 30 minutes four times a week at the elementary level have been in place for the past five years. The middle school is in its second year of a reading program for grades 6-8. “Overall we’re very pleased. It’s always good to see our hard work paying off,� said Wilson. ISTEP scores are used by the DOE to determine letter grades assigned to the state’s schools to rate their performance. Performance money for teachers is tied to that letter grade, which resulted in $74,000 last year at MSD.


FREMONT — Fremont Community Schools is one of four corporations in the area to perform above state averages in ISTEP testing. Doing well is what the corporation focuses on daily, said Superintendent Lori Vaughn. Fremont students in grades 3-8 passed ISTEP tests at rates of 80.9 percent in English-language arts and 86.6 percent in math, with 76.6 percent of students passing both parts of the test. “We generally are strong in math, but in both areas, we’ve been tweaking our curriculum with problembased learning and solving,� Vaughn said. She said it appears the only areas where Fremont students scored below state averages are fifth- and eighth-grade language arts. “We always anticipate this. We’re extremely pleased. I think our teachers, parents and students� need to be commended, she said. “It gives one more reason to be in the Fremont Schools. I’m pleased and very proud of our students and my staff.�

MARKET: Fed waiting for more sustained progress FROM PAGE A1

While the U.S. economy appeared to be improving, the bank’s policymakers “decided to await more evidence that progress will be sustained� before deciding to slow the bond purchases. The bank also cut its full-year economic outlook for this year and next. Stock traders shrugged off the Fed’s dimmer outlook and focused on the prospect of continued stimulus. The S&P 500 surged 20.76 points, or 1.2 percent, to 1,725.52, slicing through its previous all-time high of 1,709.67 set on Aug. 2. The Dow Jones industrial average jumped 147.21 points, or 1 percent, to 15,676.94, also above its previous record high of 15,658.36 from Aug. 2. The Nasdaq composite rose 37.94 points, 1 percent, to 3,783.64. The fate of the Fed’s economic stimulus program has been the biggest question on Wall Street for months. It was widely expected that the Fed would cut back on its bond buying

at the September meeting. Tom di Galoma, a bond trader at ED&F Man Capital, said he was “completely shocked� that the Fed decided to wait. Some investors advised caution, even as the stock market hit all-time highs. While the Fed’s decision is positive for the market in the short term, “investors need to take a step back and consider the idea that maybe the U.S economy is on weaker footing than we originally thought,� said Marc Doss, regional chief investment officer for Wells Fargo Private Bank. Bond prices also rose sharply, sending yields lower. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.68 percent from 2.87 percent a minute before the Fed released its statement. It was a rush into bonds not seen since October 2011. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note is a benchmark for many kinds of lending rates, including home mortgages. Investors said there were two reasons why bond prices jumped Wednesday. First,

since the Fed decided to keep up its bond purchase program, it keeps a big buyer of bonds in the market. Also, the Fed’s lowered economic outlook gave traders another reason to seek long-term safety in their portfolios. As bond yields plunged, investors snapped up stocks that tend to pay richer dividends, such as utilities. The Dow Jones utility average jumped 3 percent, its best day in two years. Stocks of home builders also rose as investors speculated that the Fed’s pledge to keep interest rates low would continue to benefit the housing market. Pulte Homes, Hovnanian and Toll Brothers were up more than 5 percent each, while D.R. Horton jumped nearly 7 percent. The price of gold jumped $55, or 4 percent, to $1,364 an ounce. In June, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke laid out a possible timetable for easing up on the bond purchases, and pledged to end them by the middle of 2014, if the economy continued to improve.

Rockets’ trajectory ties Syrian army to attacks BEIRUT (AP) — The trajectory of the rockets that delivered the nerve agent sarin in last month’s deadly attack is among the key evidence linking elite Syrian troops based in the mountains overlooking Damascus to the strike that killed hundreds of people, diplomats and human rights officials said Wednesday. The Aug. 21 attack precipitated the crisis over Syria’s chemical weapons. The U.S. threatened a military strike against Syria, which led to a plan negotiated by Moscow and Washington under which the regime of President Bashar Assad is to abandon its chemical weapons stockpile. A U.N. report released Monday confirmed that chemical weapons were used in the attack but did not ascribe blame. The United States, Britain and France cited evidence in the report to declare Assad’s government responsible. Russia called the report “one-sided� and says it has “serious reason to suggest that this was a provocation� by the rebels fighting the Assad regime in Syria’s civil war. The report, however, provided data that suggested

the chemical-loaded rockets that hit two Damascus suburbs were fired from the northwest, indicating they came from nearby mountains where the Syrian military is known to have major bases. Mount Qassioun, which overlooks Damascus, is home to one of Assad’s three residences and is widely used by elite forces to shell suburbs of the capital. The powerful Republican Guard and army’s Fourth Division, headed by Assad’s younger brother, Maher, has bases there. A senior U.N. diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity because some of this material was from private meetings, said: “It was 100 percent clear that the regime used chemical weapons.� The diplomat cited five key details, including the scale of the attack, the quality of the sarin, the type of rockets, the warheads used and the rockets’ trajectory. A Human Rights Watch report also said the presumed flight path of the rockets cited by the U.N. inspectors’ report led back to a Republican Guard base in Mount Qassioun. “Connecting the dots provided by these numbers

allows us to see for ourselves where the rockets were likely launched from and who was responsible,� said Josh Lyons, a satellite imagery analyst for the New York-based group. But, he added, the evidence was “not conclusive.� The HRW report matched what several experts concluded after reading the U.N. report. The U.N. inspectors were not instructed to assess which side was responsible for the attack. “While the U.N. stuck within its mandate, it has provided enough data to provide an overwhelming case that this had to be government-sponsored,� said Anthony Cordesman, national security expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. The inspectors described the rockets used to disperse the sarin as a variant of an M14 artillery rocket, with either an original or an improvised warhead, which the rebels are not known to have. There is no conceivable way to prove the rebels could not have gotten them, Cordesman said, but he added that the modification of the rockets pointed to the regime.

Navy on high alert BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Armed guards stand at the gates. IDs are needed to pass through electronic barriers. And uniformed members of the American military — trained and battle-tested to recognize the enemy and kill — are everywhere, smartly saluting as they come and go. And yet, twice in less than four years, a person with permission to be there passed through the layers of protection at a U.S. base and opened fire, undermining the sense of security at the installations that embody the most powerful military in the world. “It is earth-shattering. When military bases are no longer safe, where is safe if that even doesn’t exist anymore?� said Col. Kathy Platoni, a reservist who keeps a gun under her desk after witnessing the shooting at Fort Hood in Texas in 2009, when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan killed 13 people. In the wake of this week’s deadly rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered the Pentagon to review security at all U.S. defense installations worldwide and the issuing of security clearances that allow access to them. “We will find those gaps and we will fix those gaps,� Hagel vowed on Wednesday.

Browns trade Trent Richardson to Colts on the situation the Colts found themselves in, it wasn’t something where we could say, ‘Can you wait three weeks to think about this or learn more?’ We thought it was a move to make us better. Banner said the Browns’ first conversation with Indianapolis about Richardson was on Tuesday. Banner said the team is not looking to make other trades, but would be willing to listen if it could make them better. “I think we feel good about where we’re at moving forward,” Banner said. The shocking trade came on the same day Chudzinski announced that third-string quarterback Brian Hoyer will start Sunday against Minnesota. Hoyer got the surprising nod over backup Jason Campbell to fill in for starter Brandon Weeden, who is sidelined with a sprained right thumb.

Like Richardson, Weeden’s days could be numbered in Cleveland, where the Browns have started 19 quarterbacks since 1999 and are still looking for the right one. Next year’s draft class includes several top-flight QBs and the Browns could be loading up on picks to make sure they get one. In addition, the Browns are bringing in free agent running back Willis McGahee for a physical and will sign him if he passes. A two-time Pro Bowl pick, McGahee was most recently with Denver. McGahee rushed for 731 yards in 10 games for the Broncos last season. He has also played for Buffalo and Baltimore, gaining 8,097 career yards on 1,957 carries. Earlier in the day, Richardson, who has been slowed by injuries throughout his brief pro career,

talked to Minnesota reporters on a conference about the pressure and expectations that come with being such a high draft pick. “I think people make it more pressure than what it is,” he said. “I just like to play football. At the end of the day, I’m going to play football like I’ve always been coached. The way I’ve always played. I’m going to be physical, fast, I’m going to be up-tempo, I’m going to be the one who’s trying to lead by example. No matter what, that’s a big reason why I fought through injury last year with broken ribs and two knee surgeries, because I know that being a first-round pick what the expectations are of you, and me being the man that I am, the athlete I am, I’m not going to sit down unless my legs are broke. “So if I can still run and I can still catch the ball, I’m playing.”

Chase for the 2013 Sprint Cup begins; rain-delayed GEICO 400 diverts attention from recent NASCAR headlines

John Harrelson/Getty Images for NASCAR

The historic penalties assessed Michael Waltrip Racing after Richmond, including a $300,000 fine and removal of driver Martin Truex Jr. from the Chase, may not be the only setback for Waltrip’s team. Truex’s sponsor, NAPA Auto Parts, issued a statement on its Facebook page that indicates considerable unhappiness about the incident and hints that the company could pull its sponsorship of the No. 56 Toyota. Here is what NAPA had to say: “The actions taken by Michael Waltrip’s Racing team this past weekend, leading to the penalties assessed by NASCAR, are very concerning. We are disappointed that a partner associated with our organization would make such a significant error in judgment. In addition, we have launched our own review to determine the future of our partnership with Michael Waltrip’s Racing team. The NAPA Auto Parts organization is proud of its long-standing NASCAR relationship. We share a passion with our customers for high-quality racing and seek to determine the best course of action for our customers, NASCAR fans, and the NAPA organization.”

Kyle Busch sweeps Camping World and Nationwide Series races at Chicagoland Speedway

Matt Kenseth’s victory in Sunday’s rainplagued Chase opener at Chicagoland Speedway, a race that was supposed to start at 2 p.m. Eastern time and ended around midnight, allowed the NASCAR world to enter Week Two of the Chase talking about something other than the shenanigans at Richmond International Raceway the week before. But the manipulation of the finishing order of the Sept. 7 regular-season finale at Richmond by Michael Waltrip Racing and an apparent attempt to do so by Penske Racing and Front Row Motorsports won’t been soon forgotten. The events at Richmond led to stiff penalties from NASCAR, a change in the makeup of the field for the Chase for the Sprint Cup and new rules for competition. NASCAR officials responded to the sport’s biggest scandal in years by adding Ryan Newman to the Chase field and dropping Martin Truex Jr., adding Jeff Gordon as a last-minute 13th entry, and creating new rules forbidding drivers and teams from laying over to affect the outcome Matt Kenseth hoists the GEICO 400 trophy after winning the first race of the 2013 of a race. Chase. NASCAR chairman Brian France said the unprecedented steps were taken to try to help the sport overcome the damage done to its integrity by teams trying to get drivers into the Chase. “I think we wanted it to be very clear, and we wanted to reinforce, frankly, the cornerstone of NASCAR, which is giving your all,” he said. “And that’s the cornerstone of any sport.” According to the new rules introduced prior to the Chase opener at Chicagoland Speedway, NASCAR will require competitors to race at 100 percent of their ability with the goal of achieving their best possible finishing position in an event. The rules state that competitors who try to artificially alter the finishing positions of the event or encourage others to do so will face penalties, including “disqualification and/or loss of finishing points and/or fines and/or loss of points and/or suspension and/or probation to any and all members of the teams, including any beneficiaries of the prohibited actions.” The rules do not apply to normal racing tactics, and do not apply to start-and-park teams, as NASCAR president Mike Helton said that those underfunded Kenseth gives the fans a victory burnout at Chicagoland Speedway. teams are giving 100 percent of their ability. take a wild-card Chase berth from Truex.

Richardson, who rushed for 950 yards as a rookie despite playing most of last season with two broken ribs, gained just 105 yards on 31 carries in Cleveland’s two losses this season. He lacked the explosiveness the Browns’ new regime was looking for, and it may not have helped that Richardson made it clear he wanted the ball more. However, Browns CEO Joe Banner said that there was nothing negative about Richardson and the team simply seized an opportunity to improve. And the Colts have been looking for a back since Vick Ballard suffered a season-ending knee injury. “This was more about the moment presented itself, and based

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Trent Richardson didn’t fit into the Browns’ plans. They’re pushing forward without him. Cleveland traded the powerful running back to the Indianapolis Colts on Wednesday, a stunning move just two games into this season and only one year after drafting Richardson in the first round. Richardson was dealt for a first-round selection in next year’s draft, when the Browns will have two opening-round picks and 10 overall. Cleveland is rebuilding and the team hopes to use those picks — seven in the first four rounds — to help turn around a floundering franchise mired in losing for more than a decade. Such a reversal was what the Browns had in mind when they took Richardson with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2011 draft. The former Alabama seemed to have it

GOLF: DeKalb among teams at Angola FROM PAGE B1

“We know where to go and how to play our shots,” said Logan Handshoe. “If we stay focused and play the best that we can, we have a chance.” Teams from West Noble and Prairie Heights will also be at Cobblestone. West Noble is coming off a third place finish at the NECC meet, where Haley Teel earned all-league honors. The top three teams in both of the sectionals advance to regionals on Saturday, Sept. 28 at Noble Hawk Golf Links in Kendallville, another familiar course for the Knights. Teams involved in the sectional at Angola include DeKalb, Fremont, Fort Wayne Blackhawk, Fort Wayne Concordia, Fort Wayne Bishop Dwenger, Fort Wayne North Side, Fort Wayne Northrop, Fort Wayne Snider and Leo. Dwenger enters the Angola sectional as defending champions. DeKalb was second a year ago and Angola was third. The Hornets were regular season champions in the NECC. DeKalb placed sixth at the NHC meet, led by a 94 from Katie Skidmore. Angola has been led this season by recent all-conference selections Morgan Dornte, Mackenna Kelly and Kandi Bach. Fremont’s Alivia Behnfeldt and Raigan Porath were both all-league selections in the NECC and lead the Eagles in Saturday’s sectionals. Behnfeldt shot an 86 at the NECC meet, trailing only Fairfield freshman Regina Raber, whose 81 earned her the individual championship in the NECC. Saturday’s sectional at Cobblestone begins at 9 a.m. while the sectional at Zollner has a 1 p.m. starting time.

EN downed at Leo


LEO — The East Noble girls varsity soccer team lost to very good Leo team on Tuesday, 3-0. The team fought a hard defensive battle, but the relentless Leo attack found the back of the net twice in the first half. In the second half the Knights did a better job stalling out the Leo attack as they could only manage one goal midway though the half. Vickie Nguyen had 18 saves for the game. The East Noble junior varsity team lost to the Lions by a 2-0 margin. The aggressive Leo team kept the pressure on most of the game. The Knights did a good job holding them off, but Leo managed to score once in each half. London Wells had one save the first half and Olivia Smith had five saves in the second.

Fremont wins 2nd straight FREMONT — Fremont won its second dual of the season in as many days, defeating Northeast Corner Conference foe Central Noble 4-1 on Wednesday. The Eagles (2-7 overall) won all of their matches in straight sets. Masyn Krieger won in straight sets at No. 1 singles for the Cougars’ lone victory. Due to receiving incorrect information, Fremont’s result at Churubusco Tuesday was incorrect in Wednesday’s edition of this newspaper. Fremont actually won its first dual of the season with a 3-2 victory over Churubusco. To go with its wins at No. 3 singles and No. 1 doubles, Fremont actually won the No. 2 doubles match as Jeremy Seiler and Drew Sullivan defeated ‘Busco’s Cody Luttman and Brandon Norris 6-1, 6-4. This newspaper regrets the error.

FORT WAYNE — The East Noble tennis team suffered a 5-0 loss on Wednesday evening at the hands of No. 4 state-ranked Canterbury. Despite the lopsided team score, the Knights put up quite a fight at the No. 2 singles position as well as both doubles spots. Evan Hart played extremely aggressive from the baseline at the No. 2 singles spot as he pushed his opponent around the court waiting for the perfect opportunity to attack the net. The doubles teams of Carl Kramer/Jonathan Toles and Brennen Biggins/Adam Albertin both started slow in the first set but pulled things together to force a decisive third set where the Knights couldn’t close the door. The team will take on Norwell tonight.

NECC: Westview earns spot in championship FROM PAGE B1

“We had at least three chances. But we couldn’t connect,” West Noble coach Khara Kimmell said. “I have no complaints on how the girls played. We just couldn’t get them (Angola).” AHS outshot West Noble 20-5 and had three corner kicks while the Chargers did not have any. West Noble sophomore goalkeeper Kendal Baker made five saves. McMillen made just one save in the Hornet goal. Sharkey gave praise to freshman Natalie Boyer in her first varsity start on defense. The Hornets lost 2-0 at Lakeland on Sept. 11.

Making Alaska more of a challenge Even the most basic hunting trips in Alaska can be a mental and physical challenge. For some, however, OUTDOORS a basic WITH DON hunt is not enough. This Don Mulligan year was my 12th consecutive year to hunt the 49th state, and I wanted to make it more difficult than usual. I never use guides or outfitters, so I couldn’t eliminate that. Winter had already hit the arctic where I hunt, so I couldn’t make the conditions any worse. All that was left to do was to greatly limit the type of game I would harvest. I have taken lots of caribou over the years so I decided to settle for nothing less than a record-book animal this year. This is a tall order in the arctic, where the barren ground subspecies is typically smaller than the same caribou subspecies in the southern part of the state. After meeting my bush pilot friend who also owns 70 North Arctic Air Taxi service in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, we immediately boarded his small bush plane and headed to a place the locals call “the swamp.” The swamp consists of hundreds of miles of rolling arctic tundra, crisscrossed

with braided arctic rivers and shallow lakes. From the air it looks nearly featureless. On the ground, it is full of hiding places for grizzly bears, wolves, moose and home to one of the largest migrating caribou herds in the world. After locating several groups of caribou numbering in the thousands, we chose a drainage where we could land with tundra tires, and set the plane down. Terry Receveur and Jeff Holchin joined me on this year’s trip. Both are accomplished bowhunters and veterans of numerous big game hunts. I chose to hunt with my .300 WSM, while both Terry and Jeff created their own challenge and carried only recurve bows. On the first morning of the hunt, we exited our tents to see nearly 1000 caribou dotting the rising tundra one mile on either side of the river drainage where we were camped. I chose to accompany the bowhunters the first day to aid them in their quest in any way they saw fit. After one quick close encounter with five mature bulls at 40 yards but no bowshot, we took a break to survey the landscape for other bulls. After a long hike to get a better vantage point, we found several groups of animals. We guessed which way they were headed and Terry and Jeff ducked down into some of the only sparse cover available on the tundra and waited. After a couple hours, the animals

hadn’t moved our way, but were joined by two bulls we were sure would make the Boone and Crocket record book. One was the biggest caribou bull I have ever seen in the twelve years I have hunted Alaska. Both bulls fit my very narrow criteria. To get them moving, I hiked a mile straight away from the caribou, then parallel to and past them. I then started pushing them

from a distance. As they headed into our trap, I got closer and closer to the monster bull, and as they neared the other hunters, I popped up over a rise and had the bull at only 50-yards, an easy shot with my rifle. Being more interested in seeing my friends kill the animal with their bows and being the first day of the hunt, I let him walk, and he did, exactly 75 yards

between both of them. He was just too far for a primitive bowshot. As soon as he passed my friends, I could not shoot due to the angle of the slope and my position. The bowhunters could only watch him walk out of sight. While we were all a little disappointed no one tagged a bull of those proportions, we all rejoiced in a hunt almost perfectly executed. It was a success by our standards. On the second day, the caribou were gone and the famous Arctic Ocean ice fog rolled in. We could not be moved by plane to another location, and the animals never came back. We ended this year’s hunt with only one small bull for camp meat. We all knew the chance of meeting our lofty goals was slim, but the thrill was in the hunt for all of us. On that count, it was a success. DON MULLIGAN can be reached at

Youths learn about the outdoors, conservation ANGOLA — The Steuben County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Steuben County Cooperative Extension Service hosted their annual Youth Conservation Field Day for the Fremont Community Schools and Metropolitan School District of Steuben County students at Pokagon State Park on Sept. 10. Two hundred and ninety-eight fourth graders learned about several areas of conservation during the field trip.

The program began at 9 a.m. at the park with students attending 20-minute sessions with each speaker. Weather for the day was beautiful and the children were able to enjoy the gorgeous Lake James setting at the park, said Kayleen Hart of the Soil and Water Conservation District. As the day progressed, temperatures soared into the 90s;

making the two sessions following the lunch break a little uncomfortable. The PHOTO CONTRIBUTED day ended around 1:30 p.m. The Northeast Indiana Solid Waste Management District sponsored the recycling session with the Dumpster Drummers this year, bringing a new facet to the day, said Hart.

Friends planning to retire getting lots of free advice DEAR ABBY: In response to “Contemplating Change in Rhode Island” (June 23), who is considering retiring with a friend to a city with a warmer climate, I would offer the same advice we have given our friends. She should know that she’ll need to be proactive in developing a social network in her new location. My wife and I also moved far south when we retired. We wanted neighbors with a variety of ages so we could hear children play nearby from time to time. We purchased a house in a “normal” neighborhood instead of a retirement community. But we soon realized that, unlike us, our neighbors had jobs, family responsibilities and little time for us. More disconcerting was going grocery shopping and no longer seeing the three or four acquaintances we would see




back home. Without jobs to occupy our time and give us a framework for social contact, we found ourselves isolated. To solve that problem we joined organizations and did volunteer work to new DEAR meet friends. ABBY Our story has a happy ending, Jeanne Phillips but it took some effort to make it happen. — MIKE IN SPARKS, NEV. DEAR MIKE: “Contemplating Change” asked if readers had experience moving far away at her age (late 60s). You, and many others, wrote to share overwhelmingly positive

feedback. Thank you for it: DEAR ABBY: For the women planning to buy a retirement home together, please tell them there are wonderful places everywhere. I have moved 15 times since the age of 70 and at 91 am moving again. (No, I am not trying to stay ahead of the sheriff.) — WRITER IN SEDONA, ARIZ. DEAR ABBY: I want to encourage your Rhode Island reader. Renting first is excellent advice. Research what you want in your new destination. Make sure it’s a growing community where transplants will be welcome. — RETIREE IN SOUTH CAROLINA DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

DEAR DOCTOR K: My wife has read that eating red meat increases the risk of diabetes. Is this true? DEAR READER: You’ve heard for a long time that limiting the amount of red meat — especially processed foods with red meat, such as salami —reduces your risk of heart disease. The evidence for that is very strong. A new study finds that cutting down on red meats such as beef, pork and lamb may have an additional benefit: reducing the risk of diabetes. In this study, researchers followed 149,000 people who answered questions about their diet every four years, for 12 to 16 years. They found that people who increased their intake of red meat -- by as little as half a serving, or 1.5 ounces, per day -- had a 48 percent greater risk of developing Type 2 diabetes (the most common type of diabetes) than people who


meat may increase the risk of heart disease. A certain substance that is present in large amounts in red meat (L-carnitine) is digested by bacteria that live in our intestines. The bacteria then produce a substance that damages the lining of arteries. Whenever I talk about the health effects of food, I worry that I may be misunderstood. When I recommend avoiding certain foods, I’m not saying to never eat them. And when I recommend having a lot of certain foods, I’m not saying eat nothing but them. I eat red meat, but not as often as I used to. And I eat lots of fruits and vegetables, but I don’t have them with absolutely every meal. All things in moderation! DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is

Six killed as bus runs into train in Canada less than three months. A runaway oil train derailed and exploded in a Quebec town on July 6, killing 47 people in the country’s worst rail disaster in more than a century. Tanner Trepanier said he and other passengers could see the four-car train bearing down on them as the bus approached the crossing. “People started screaming, ‘Stop! Stop!’ because they could see the train coming down the track,” Trepanier said. But the driver didn’t slow down, said Rebecca Guilbeault, who was on the bus with her 1-year-old son. “I don’t know if the bus driver blacked out,” she said. “I’ve seen a few people dead, someone ripped in half.” Another passenger, Gregory Mech, said the train crossing has about a 90-degree bend and he didn’t think the driver saw that the signals were flashing and the barrier was down. “The bus actually hit the train dead on,” Mech told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. “I could see that there were bodies on the train tracks. It was horrible.”

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Passengers screamed “Stop! Stop!” seconds before their bus crashed through a crossing barrier and into a commuter train during morning rush hour in Canada’s capital on Wednesday, killing six people and injuring 30. “He smoked the train,” witness Mark Cogan said of the bus driver, who was among those killed. “He went through the guard rail and just hammered the train, and then it was just mayhem.” It was not immediately clear what caused the bus to smash through the lowered barrier at a crossing in suburban Ottawa. The front of the doubledecker bus was ripped away by the impact, and the train’s locomotive and one passenger car derailed, though there were no reports of major injuries to train passengers or crew. Officials in Ottawa said 10 of the injured were in critical condition as the crash brought trains on the national Via Rail’s Ottawa-Toronto route to a standstill. It was Canada’s second major rail accident in
