GOOD MORNING State representative Phyllis Pond dies STATEHOUSE — State Rep. Phyllis Pond, R- New Haven, has died after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis in early September, a news release said Sunday night. It did not mention the time and place of Rep. Pond death. Pond recently resigned her seat in the Indiana House of Representatives effective Oct. 15, due to her health. A Republican caucus to choose her replacement already was scheduled for Oct. 8. Pond was elected to the state Legislature in 1978 and was the longest-serving female state representative in Indiana history. She was the first female lawmaker to earn a seat in the front row in the House Chamber, reserved for House leaders or representatives with the most seniority. Pond also had worked as a kindergarten teacher.


A great day for flying at Lake James The 11th annual Indiana Seaplane Pilots Association Splashin at Pokagon State Park attracted quite a crowd due to the nice weather Sunday. There were about 20 planes that showed up for the annual event, and hundreds of people gathered on the lawn at Pokagon to see the planes in front of Potawatomi Inn. It was so busy that parking spilled over to the lot at the toboggan slide nearly a quarter-mile away from the Potawatomi Inn area, and the beach was packed with boaters.

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Kenyan’s military said late Sunday it had rescued “most” of the remaining hostages held by al-Qaida-linked militants in an upscale Nairobi mall after launching a major operation to end a two-day standoff that had already killed 68 people. The assault, which began shortly before sundown, came as two helicopters circled the mall, with one skimming very close to the roof. A loud explosion rang out, far larger than any previous grenade blast or gunfire volley. Kenyan police said on Twitter that a “MAJOR” assault by had started to end the bloody siege. “This will end tonight. Our forces will prevail. Kenyans are standing firm against aggression, and we will win,” Kenya’s National Disaster Operation Centre said on Twitter. Kenya Defence Forces later said it had rescued most hostages and had taken control of most of the mall. Officials did not immediately release the number of hostages rescued or the number that remained. Four Kenyan military personnel were wounded in the operation, the military said. The assault came about 30 hours after 10 to 15 al-Shabab extremists stormed the mall Saturday from two sides, throwing grenades and firing on civilians. Loud exchanges of gunfire emanated from inside the four-story upscale mall throughout Sunday. Kenyan troops were seen carrying in at least two rocket propelled grenades. Al-Shabab militants reacted angrily to the helicopters on Twitter and warned that the Kenyan military action was endangering hostages. Kenyan officials said they would do their utmost to save hostages’ lives, but no officials could say precisely how many hostages were inside. Kenya’s Red Cross said in a statement citing police that 49 people had been reported missing. Officials did not make an explicit link but that number could give an indication of the number of people held captive. SEE KENYA, PAGE A6

Same-sex couple open, affirmed Pair from Angola church married in Calif. last month BY JENNIFER DECKER

ANGOLA — When Deb Miller and Gayle Newton’s longtime relationship was legalized recently in California through same-sex marriage, it made their church becoming Open and Affirming more meaningful. The Fort Wayne couple attends the Angola First Congregational United Church of Christ when at their summer home in the Steuben County area. Recently, the congregation overwhelmingly voted to become Open and Affirming, meaning the church welcomes everyone, including gay, lesbian and transgender individuals. (See related story on Page A6.) Both women said it has always



been that way at the church; the vote was a formality. Miller and Newton met 23 years ago when playing volleyball. They have been together ever since and have always considered themselves married. But they decided to make that legally recognized. “When the Defense of Marriage Act was struck down at the end of June, it opened some opportunities for us,” Newton said. “We saw the tides were changing.” The couple already had an

Police Blotter • Semi hauling mail hits U.S. 20 bridge ANGOLA — A semi tractor-trailer hauling U.S. mail crashed into the Indiana Toll Road bridge supports on U.S. 20, east of Angola, Sunday at 12:45 p.m., police said. Semi driver Stanic Kresimir, 53, of Hoffman Estates, Ill., was taken to Cameron Hospital in Angola for treatment of a minor head injury. A news release said Kresimir told police he believed mechanical failure caused the crash. He was using a seatbelt, and police said that was instrumental in keeping his injuries minor. Police said Kresimir was driving eastbound in a 2014 Volvo tractor pulling a 2008 trailer full of mail. The tractor and trailer were total losses, but the cargo was salvaged.

Some state schools ending their open enrollment policies HAMMOND (AP) — A new Indiana law that prevents public schools from turning away transfer students with poor grades or disciplinary problems has prompted some districts to end their open enrollment policies. Lawmakers passed the law after hearing from educators and students who said some schools were accepting only the brightest transfer students or rejecting children with disciplinary problems. The new law, which took effect in July, prevents schools that accept students from outside the district’s borders from denying a student’s transfer request for any reason other than school capacity. That means students with poor grades, low test scores or behavior issues must be accepted. The change has prompted some districts to halt their open enrollment, while others are staying the course because open enrollment is one of the few ways some districts can grow. Munster Superintendent Richard Sopko announced over the summer that the district would no longer would transfer students, saying the new state law took away “local control.” The district had required transfer students to have a B average, have passed ISTEP-Plus and not have any major discipline problems. Another northern Indiana district, Highland Schools, also decided to end open enrollment. “I think the lawmakers decided they were not going to allow public schools to cherry-pick — yet that’s exactly what private schools


do,” Superintendent Brian Smith told The Times of Munster. Indiana’s public schools are facing continued competition as a result of the expansion of school choice options. Hoosier families can use a state school voucher to send their children to a private school using public tax dollars. Or they can send them to one of the state’s public charter schools, which operate with fewer restrictions and more flexibility than a traditional public school. Whiting’s School Board approved an open enrollment policy four years ago to boost enrollment after a state law called for school districts with fewer than 1,000 students be consolidated with another district in the same county. Whiting Superintendent Sandra Martinez said the district plans to continue its open enrollment policy. Walter Watkins, the superintendent of School City of Hammond, said the district has been losing about 100 students a year for the past couple of years and will continue with open enrollment. He said this year the district is estimated to lose about 135 students from its current enrollment of 13,100 students. The Metropolitan School District of Boone Township in Hebron, which depends on transfer students to grow the district, has 85 transfer students, Superintendent George Letz said. “We’re following the law and showing capacity. We do look at the student’s discipline record, but we are fulfilling the requirements of the new legislation,” he said.

Ritz aims to offer transparency INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Democratic schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz is promising greater transparency as she begins work on a new school grading formula. Even before it was uncovered that her predecessor, former Republican School Superintendent Tony Bennett, had changed the grading formula to ensure a top GOP donor’s charter school received an A, Ritz said her administration would work in the open. But in the wake of Bennett’s grade-changing scandal, that promise is even more important. One of her first chances to make good on that guarantee will be a string of meetings for the 17-member panel making recommendations on the new grading formula. They will be working

at a breakneck pace, by Statehouse standards, to get their recommendations to the State Board of Education by Nov. 1. Ritz and the panel’s other co-chairman, West Allen County School Superintendent Steven Yager, both said last week they plan to hold “fair and transparent” meetings. “That’s our ultimate goal, to make sure we have a transparent system that patrons and teachers, staff members, taxpayers, business folks can read and understand and make sense of,” Yager said shortly before walking into the first meeting of the group. The grades themselves are important in determining official moves, like how much money a school gets from the state. They also have less tangible impacts,

affecting things like where families decide to buy homes. There already exists surface-level openness for the grades, in the form of glossy one-pagers from the Department of Education showing each school’s grade. But the past month or so has shown that “how the sausage is made” — shorthand for the gnashing of politics in creating policy, almost as much to divert attention from important decisions — is important. Indiana leaders have a mixed record on showing the public how their money is being spent. The good includes streaming online legislative hearings and archived webcasts, easily searchable legislation and contracts and many other databases of public information. But the bad includes

some high-level incidents like a meeting of the Purdue Board of Trustees at Chicago O’Hare International Airport last year to select their new president. The Journal & Courier in Lafayette petitioned the state’s public access counselor for details on the meeting location at the airport but was told that simply knowing it’s somewhere in one of the world’s largest airports should suffice. The pair of veteran Statehouse analysts hired to determine how Bennett and his team had changed the grading formula delivered a series of findings to lawmakers earlier this month. They found neither vindication nor condemnation for the former schools chief, although they described deep concerns about the transparency.

Goldenrod acts as symbol of fall Goldenrod is in bloom. Patches of its blossoms have spread splashes of yellow along highways and country roadsides. Their appearance signals the coming of fall as clearly as shorter days and chilly nights. Goldenrod is common and widespread, a wildflower to many people, a weed to others. It is well known and OUTDOOR recognized almost NOTES by everybody. Neil Case It’s common not just in North America, but in Mexico and in countries of Europe and South America. It’s well known, but only in a general way. It’s not one species, but a multitude of similar species. There are more species of goldenrod than there are of sparrows or of warblers or of sparrows and warblers together, according to one reference I have. All goldenrods have a mass of small flowers toward the upper end of a tall stalk or at the end of the stalk, above the leaves. All the flowers and leaves are similar, so similar it is difficult to distinguish one species from another.

In “Handbook of Nature Study,” Anna Botsford Comstock wrote, “Unless one is a trained botanist, it is wasted energy to try to distinguish any but the well-marked species of goldenrod.” In “A Field Guide to Wildflowers,” Roger Tory Peterson and Margaret McKenny made it a little easier to identify individual species of goldenrod by arranging them in groups according to the shape of the flower head, the mass of flowers. Peterson and McKenny used five categories, plumelike, which they termed graceful, elm-branched, clublike, which they termed showy, wandlike, very slender and flat-topped. There is one species of goldenrod which I find easy to identify. Unlike other goldenrods, it blooms in open woods, in partial shade. Its blossoms and the shape of its stem and leaves identify it as a goldenrod, but its blossoms are nearly white. They haven’t even a tinge of yellow. It’s named silver-rod. Several species of goldenrod were used at one time for medicinal purposes. One was thought to be an antidote to rattlesnake bite, though how it was administered my reference didn’t say. A lotion made of the boiled stems and leaves of another was used to cure “sores and cuts in man or beast.” Another

was “much used for head ache” and as a “stimulant, diaphoretic, carminative, useful in flatulence, nausea, (and) spasms of the stomach.” Again my reference didn’t say how it was used. Silver-rod rubbed on the head and temples was “reckon’d a preserver of sight and strengthener of the brain.” Many people believe goldenrod is a cause, to some the principal cause of hay fever. It’s a matter of guilt by association. Goldenrod blooms at the same time as ragweed. It’s the pollen of ragweed, drifting in the air, that aggravates hay fever sufferers. The pollen of goldenrod is heavy. It is not carried in the air, but is carried by bees. Goldenrod flowers are conspicuous, however, ragweed blossoms are not, and since they bloom at the same time, goldenrod is often blamed for the discomfort of people

who suffer from hay fever. In “American Wildlife and Plants,” it states, “The wildlife utility of these fall blooming weeds (goldenrod) is very low in proportion to their abundance and availability.” The authors went on to say that grouse occasionally pick at the leaves, goldfinches, juncos and a few other birds sometimes eat the seeds, and rabbits nibble the foliage. On a personal note, while studying red-winged blackbirds in New York when I was a college student, I found a few redwing nests in goldenrod in weedy fields. Those nests were fastened to the stems of goldenrod like redwing nests fastened to cattails in marshes. There are many indications that fall has arrived. But nothing indicates the season more conspicuously than the bright yellow blossoms of goldenrod.

Muncie policeman shoots his attacker MUNCIE (AP) — Muncie police say an officer shot and wounded a man who allegedly began strangling him after officers pulled his car over following a fight outside a nightclub. Police say 32-year-old Bryan William Modglin was

in stable condition Sunday at a Muncie hospital. The Star Press reports police responding to a fight early Sunday outside Kruzzers Night Club determined Modglin was a suspect in that fight and had fled the scene.

Michigan governor says he can be ‘GOP’s model’ MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Rick Snyder — the understated, self-described “nerd” and former CEO — is making one thing clear as he prepares for a challenging re-election race next year: He intends to be part of the national conversation underway about the Republican Party’s future. The first-term governor used his role as host of a biennial state GOP conference that drew more than 1,000 state and national figures — including three potential presidential candidates — to cast himself as a problem solver with a governing philosophy that can fix the nation’s ills. Snyder insisted he was focused intently on governing a state still smarting from the economic recession, with an unemployment rate that remains above the national average and whose largest city — Detroit — has filed for bankruptcy.

People • Hugh Jackman’s ‘Prisoners’ is tops at box office NEW YORK (AP) — The more adult-oriented fall moviegoing season got off to a strong start over the weekend, as the Hugh Jackman kidnapping drama “Prisoners” opened with a box officeJackman leading $21.4 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. The Warner Bros. thriller, which also stars Jake Gyllenhaal, is among the first fall films with Oscar aspirations to open in theaters. It was a strong debut for a serious, R-rated drama that cost about $46 million to make. Following the robust business for “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” (now up to $106.5 million in six weeks for the Weinstein Co.), the large audiences turning out for adult fare bodes well for Hollywood’s coming awards season. In limited release, two other adult-oriented films opened well. Ron Howard’s Formula One tale “Rush” opened in five theaters with a $40,000 per-screen average. And the romantic comedy “Enough Said,” opened in four theaters.


Bombing attack on church kills 78 in Pakistan

Surveillance cameras coming to Jewish neighborhood NEW YORK (AP) — In a city that’s ramped up surveillance since the 9/11 attacks, the next big installation of security cameras is not in the bustle of midtown Manhattan or near a well-known tourist attraction but in a leafy section of Brooklyn known for its low crime and large Orthodox Jewish population. A hundred security cameras will be installed on public lampposts throughout the Midwood and Borough Park neighborhoods in the coming months — the result of a $1 million state grant secured in the wake of a horrifying tragedy: the 2011 abduction, dismemberment and murder of an 8-year-old Hasidic boy named Leiby Kletzky. The taxpayer-funded security system will augment an already insular Orthodox community that has its own volunteer police force, ambulances and schools. The Leiby Kletzky Security Initiative, as it is called, was announced by state Assemblyman Dov Hikind and state Sen. Dean Skelos a year after the gruesome killing of the boy, whose body parts were found in a freezer and inside a red suitcase tossed into the trash.

Blame game snares budget WASHINGTON (AP) — Even before a budget deadline arrives, leaders from both parties are blaming each other — and some Republicans are criticizing their own — for a government shutdown many are treating as inevitable. The top Democrat in the House says Republicans are “legislative arsonists” who are using their opposition to a sweeping health care overhaul as an excuse to close government’s doors. ‘A leading tea party antagonist in the Senate counters that conservatives should use any tool available to stop the Affordable Care Act from taking hold. President Bill Clinton’s labor secretary says the GOP is willing “to risk the entire system of government to get your way,” while the House speaker who oversaw the last government shutdown urged fellow Republicans to remember “this is not a dictatorship.” The unyielding political posturing on Sunday comes one week before Congress reaches an Oct. 1 deadline to dodge any interruptions in government services. While work continues on a temporary spending bill, a potentially more devastating separate deadline looms a few weeks later when the government could run out of

Merkel triumphs in Germany BERLIN (AP) — Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives triumphed in Germany’s election Sunday and appeared likely to end up close to an absolute majority. While Merkel was headed for a third term, her centerright coalition partners faced ejection from parliament for the first time in post-World War II history. Depending on which parties end up in parliament, Merkel could find herself leading a “grand coalition” government with the left-leaning Social Democrats or — less likely — with the environmentalist Greens. Either way, that would likely to take several weeks of difficult negotiations. Each combination might bring a slightly softer tone to Europe’s debt crisis, but probably without any significant policy shifts. Merkel, Germany’s chancellor since 2005 and the de facto leader of the response to Europe’s debt crisis over the past three years, told supporters it was “a super result.” She wouldn’t immediately speculate about the shape of the next government, but she made clear she plans to serve a full term. “I see the next four years in front of me and I can promise that we will face many tasks, at home, in Europe and in the world,” Merkel said.

money to pay its bills. “This is totally irresponsible, completely juvenile and, as I called it, legislative arson. It’s just destructive,” House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said in an interview that aired Sunday. The Republican-led House on Friday approved legislation designed to wipe out the 3-year-old health care law that President Barack Obama has vowed to preserve. But the House’s move was more a political win than a measure likely to be implemented. Across the Capitol, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said he would keep the health law intact despite Republicans’ attempts, in his words, “to take an entire law hostage simply to appease the tea party anarchists.” One of those tea party agitators, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, showed little sign on Sunday that he cared about the uphill climb to make good on his pledge to derail the health care law over Obama’s guaranteed veto. “I believe we should stand our ground,” said Cruz, who already was trying to blame Obama and his Democratic allies if the government shuts down. Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat, said Cruz’s efforts were destructive and self-serving as

Cruz eyes a White House campaign. “I cannot believe that they are going to throw a tantrum and throw the American people and our economic recovery under the bus,” she said. “This is about running for president with Ted Cruz. This isn’t about meaningful statesmanship,” she added later. The wrangling over the budget comes as lawmakers consider separate legislation that would let the United States avoid a first-ever default on its debt obligations. House Republicans are planning legislation that would attach a 1-year delay in the health care law in exchange for ability to increase the nation’s credit limit of $16.7 trillion. Obama, speaking to political allies on Saturday evening, showed little patience for the GOP efforts to undermine his legislative accomplishment by either avenue. “We will not negotiate over whether or not America should keep its word and meet its obligations,” Obama told the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner. “We’re not going to allow anyone to inflict economic pain on millions of our own people just to make an ideological point.”


PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — A pair of suicide bombers blew themselves up amid hundreds of worshippers at a historic church in northwestern Pakistan on Sunday, killing 78 people in the deadliest-ever attack against the country’s Christian minority. A wing of the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the bombing, raising new questions about the government’s push to strike a peace deal with the militants to end a decadelong insurgency that has killed thousands of people. The Jundullah arm of the Taliban said they would continue to target non-Muslims until the United States stopped drone attacks in Pakistan’s remote tribal region. The latest drone strike came Sunday, when missiles hit a pair of compounds in the North Waziristan tribal area, killing six suspected militants.

The attack on the All Saints Church, which wounded 141 people, occurred as worshippers were leaving after services to get a free meal of rice offered on the front lawn, said a top government administrator, Sahibzada Anees. “There were blasts and there was hell for all of us,” said Nazir John, who was at the church in the city’s Kohati Gate district along with at least 400 other worshippers. “When I got my senses back, I found nothing but smoke, dust, blood and screaming people. I saw severed body parts and blood all around.” Survivors wailed and hugged one another in the wake of the blasts. The white walls of the church, which first opened in the late 1800s, were pockmarked with holes caused by ball bearings contained in the bombs to cause maximum damage.

Iran’s new president reaches out to West TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — On the eve of a landmark trip to attend the U.N. General Assembly, Iran’s president offered Sunday his most expansive vision that a deal to settle the impasse over Tehran’s nuclear program could open doors for greater cooperation on regional flash points such as the Syrian civil war. The linkage of Middle East affairs and broad-stroke rhetoric by Hasan Rouhani served as something of a final sales pitch to President Barack Obama ahead of the U.N. gathering, where Rouhani hopes to garner pledges from Western envoys to restart stalled nuclear negotiations as a way to ease painful economic sanctions. Rouhani also must try to sell his policies of outreach to skeptical Iranian hard-liners, including the powerful Revolutionary Guard. Failure to return from New York with some progress — either pledges

to revive nuclear talks or hints that the U.S. and its allies may consider relaxing sanctions — could increase pressures on Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to withdraw his apparent backing for Rouhani’s overtures with Washington. It adds up to a high-stakes week ahead for Rouhani in his first gathering with Western leaders since his inauguration last month. While his effort to open new diplomatic space is genuine, it’s still unclear where it could find footholds. Obama has exchanged letters with Rouhani and says he would welcome groundbreaking direct talks after a nearly 35-year diplomatic estrangement. But Washington previously has rejected offering a significant rollback in sanctions — Rouhani’s main goal — as a way to push ahead nuclear talks.

Casinos, cheaters continue battles UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — The man at the poker table had a ball cap pulled down almost to his nose, but his glance up at a television screen revealed a familiar face to Mohegan Sun’s surveillance cameras: A photograph of the known card cheater had been sent by bulletin to casinos around the country. Within hours, the bettor was arrested, accused of marking cards with invisible ink. “The officer who identified him, basically she had a ‘Holy crap!’ moment,” said Jay Lindroos, the casino’s surveillance director. “She saw the face and said, ‘I recognize that guy!’” Casinos from the U.S. to Australia use their own intelligence network to warn one another about cheaters. As table games spread across the Northeast, resorts are using it more than ever to stay ahead of suspect players — professional thieves and

card counters — who can easily hit multiple casinos in the span of a few days. Mohegan Sun, one of the world’s largest casinos, began sharing intelligence a decade ago with its giant, next-door rival in southeastern Connecticut, the Foxwoods Resort Casino. Although it was once less common for casinos to talk with competitors, the online network has evolved through mutual self-interest. “If something happens at Foxwoods at 1 o’clock, we’ll be aware of it no later than 2, 2:30,” said Joseph Lavin, director of public safety for the Mohegan Tribe, which owns and operates the casino. “It won’t take more than a day or so before that information goes to Atlantic City, goes to Pennsylvania, goes out to upstate New York.” The element of luck makes it impossible to know exactly how much revenue is lost to cheaters, but 100

percent casino surveillance coverage is a security standard for a U.S. industry that generates tens of billions of dollars annually. Workers at Mohegan Sun monitor feeds from roughly 4,000 cameras, scrutinizing the dealers as closely as they do the players. On a given day, they could be on the lookout for as many as hundreds of faces, some pointed out by other casinos, others by law enforcement agencies seeking criminals who might be trying to launder money. If a camera picks up somebody who’s been flagged for possible cheating, security officials said they’ll watch the person play before taking any action. The man arrested Sept. 15, Bruce Koloshi, 54, was the subject of a security bulletin issued two weeks earlier by officials in Louisiana. He had cheating convictions in Iowa and Nevada and was facing charges in Louisiana that

he marked cards last month at the L’Auberge Casino in Baton Rouge. After the surveillance officer spotted him, Koloshi was seen moving his hands away from the Mississippi Stud poker table, allegedly for the marking substance, and cameras detected the ink that wasn’t visible to the naked eye. Koloshi wore special contact lenses to see the ink, authorities said. He was arrested and charged with cheating, conspiracy to commit larceny and being a fugitive from justice. His bond was set at $300,000. When he was questioned in Louisiana, he surrendered $3,300 in winnings though authorities did not have enough evidence to charge him at the time, according to Capt. Doug Cain, a spokesman for Louisiana State Police. Mohegan Sun officials said Koloshi was arrested at their casino before winning a significant amount.

Jeff Daniels poses with the award for outstanding lead actor in a drama series for his role on “The Newsroom at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards at Nokia Theatre on Sunday in Los Angeles.

‘Modern Family’ wins top Emmy ‘Breaking Bad’ is best drama LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Modern Family” and “Breaking Bad” won the top two Emmy awards on Sunday in Los Angeles. “Modern Family” was named best comedy while “Breaking Bad” was given the award for best drama show. In other awards, Jeff Daniels won for best drama series actor for his portrayal of an idealistic TV anchorman in “The Newsroom,” with Claire Danes capturing top actress honors for her troubled CIA agent in “Homeland.” Daniels noted that he’d also received an age 50-plus acting honor from AARP, which represents the interests of older Americans. “With all due respect to the AARP, this is even better,” Daniels said. Danes, who captured her second trophy for the terrorism drama, paid tribute to one of the series’ writers, Henry Bromell, who died last March and who received a writing Emmy posthumously Sunday. The ceremony often struck a melancholy note with extended tributes to stars and other industry members who died in the past year. It also included upsets, defying the conventional wisdom in several categories, including acting categories. “This just in. Nobody in America is winning their Emmy office pool. Surprises

galore,” host Neil Patrick Harris. Danes’ win ended the hopes that “Scandal” best actress nominee Kerry Washington would become the first African-American to win in the category since Cicely Tyson in 1995 for “Sweet Justice.” Julia Louis-Dreyfus claimed her second consecutive best comedy actress award for her role as an ambitious political second banana in “Veep,” with Jim Parsons again claiming the top comedy acting trophy for “The Big Bang Theory.” “This is so much good fortune it’s almost too much to bear,” said Louis-Dreyfus. “I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to make people laugh. It’s a joyful way to make a living.” Parsons added to the awards he won in 2011 and 2010 for the role of a science nerd. “My heart, oh my heart. I want you to know I’m very aware of how exceedingly fortunate I am,” he said. Merritt Wever of “Nurse Jackie” won the night’s first award, for best supporting actress in a comedy series, kicking off the ceremony on a surprising note and with a remarkably brief acceptance speech. “Thank you so much. Thank you so much. Um, I got to go, bye,” Wever told the audience after besting a field that included two-time winner Julie Bowen of “Modern Family.” “Merritt Wever, best speech ever,” host Neil Patrick Harris said.

Athletic woman shares her story “Exercise should be regarded as tribute to the heart.” — Gene Tunney BY LISA M. WOLFE

One of the valves in my heart is too small, giving me a heart murmur and occasional blood flow in the wrong direction. I am very comfortable with doctors, as they have been examining me from the day I was born. My small valve and I got along well during my childhood. I had no restrictions and could climb trees, play baseball and ride bikes with the best of the boys on my street, being the tomboy that I was. When I was 18, my valve began to express unhappiness. Any stress I felt led to chest pain. It was as if I was cutting off the oxygen supply to the valve and in return, the small flap was screaming at me to relax. According to the doctors, the only solution was medication, which I soon learned I

would be on for the rest of my life. At 18, the “rest of my life” sounded like 100 years. I had to find an alternative to reduce stress and increase blood flow to my heart. I found myself in an aerobic exercise class — good for mood boosting, relaxation and cardiovascular health. The instructor “saw something” in me. She said I was always smiling and moved to the beat. Then she asked if I would like to be an instructor. My response was, “Sure, but you’ll have to teach

me.” God bless her, she did. Donna spent the entire summer showing me how to be a fitness instructor and then hired me to teach classes for her business. That same fall, I entered college not knowing what degree I was pursuing. Once there, I learned I could get a degree in exercise science. How perfect. My fitness-instructing career led me to a desire to learn about the body and the body’s response to an exercise program. I could not get enough. I wanted to know everything about the heart, muscles, bones and brain. During this time, I experienced a reduction in chest pains and would exercise or walk whenever I felt an episode approaching. I studied biology, physiology and my favorite, the heart. During my class on EKGs, which are electrocardiograph tests for the heart, I learned more information about the medication I was taking and the effect

of my body’s response to exercise. I did not like the side effects, so with the doctor’s guidance, I weaned myself from the drug. If it weren’t for my “broken” heart, I would not be where I am today. Twenty-three years have passed, and when I occasionally experience chest pains, movement is my solution. I am passionate about exercise and look forward to work every day. My career in the fitness industry has taken me many places. I owned a gym, competed in a fitness competition, worked in cardiac rehab, wrote six fitness books, filmed a workout video, instructed others on land and in the water, taught new instructors and trained many personal clients.

No conditional bids will be considered. Each bid must be enclosed in a sealed envelope addressed to the School Corporation and marked on the outside “Bid for General Obligation Bonds of 2013”. A good faith deposit (“Deposit”) in the form of cash or certified or cashier's check in the amount of $20,000 payable to the order of the School Corporation is required to be submitted by the successful purchaser (the "Purchaser") not later than 3:30 p.m. (EST) on the next business day following the award. If such Deposit is not received by that time, the School Corporation may reject the bid. No interest on the Deposit will accrue to the Purchaser. The Deposit will be applied to the purchase price of the Bonds. In the event the Purchaser fails to honor its accepted bid, the Deposit will be retained by the School Corporation as liquidated damages. The successful bidder shall make payment to U.S. Bank National Association, as registrar (the “Registrar”) for the Bonds and accept delivery thereof from the Registrar within five days after being notified that the Bonds are ready for delivery, at such place in the City of Indianapolis, Indiana, as the successful bidder may designate. The Bonds will be ready for delivery within 45 days after the date of sale. If the School Corporation fails to have the Bonds ready for delivery prior to the close of banking hours on the forty-fifth day after the date of sale, the bidder may secure the release of his bid upon request in writing, filed with the School Corporation. The successful bidder is expected to apply to a securities depository registered with the SEC to make such Bonds depository-eligible. At the time of delivery of the Bonds to the successful bidder, the bidder will be required to certify to the School Corporation the initial reoffering price to the public of a substantial amount of each maturity of the Bonds. It is anticipated that CUSIP identification numbers will be printed on the Bonds, but neither the failure to print such numbers on any Bond nor any error with respect thereto shall constitute cause for failure or refusal by

the successful bidder therefor to accept delivery of and pay for the Bonds in accordance with the terms of its proposal. No CUSIP identification number shall be deemed to be a part of any Bond or a part of the contract evidenced thereby and no liability shall hereafter attach to the School Corporation or any of its officers or agents because of or on account of such numbers. All expenses in relation to the printing of CUSIP identification numbers on the Bonds shall be paid for by the School Corporation; provided, however, that the CUSIP Service Bureau charge for the assignment of said numbers shall be the responsibility of and shall be paid for by the Purchaser. The Purchaser will also be responsible for any other fees or expenses it incurs in connection with the resale of the Bonds. The approving opinion of Ice Miller LLP, bond counsel of Indianapolis, Indiana, together with a transcript of the proceedings relating to the issuance of the Bonds and closing papers in the usual form showing no litigation questioning the validity of the Bonds, will be furnished to the successful bidder at the expense of the School Corporation. The Bonds are being issued for the purpose to pay the cost of the renovation of and improvements to Fremont Elementary School, Fremont Middle School and Fremont High School including the purchase of equipment, technology, buses and vehicles, and will be direct obligations of the School Corporation payable out of ad valorem taxes to be collected on the taxable property within the School Corporation; however, the School Corporation's collection of the levy may be limited by operation of I.C. 6-1.1-20.6, which provides taxpayers with tax credits for property taxes attributable to different classes of property in an amount that exceeds certain percentages of the gross assessed value of that property. The School Corporation is required by law to fully fund the payment of debt service on the Bonds in an amount sufficient to pay the debt service, regardless of any reduction in property tax collections due to the application of such tax credits. The School Corporation may not be able to levy or collect additional property taxes to make up this short fall. Fremont Community Schools is a school corporation organized pursuant to the provisions of I.C. 20-4, and the Bonds will not be “private activity bonds” as defined in Section 141 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. The Bonds constitute an indebtedness only of the School Corporation. Interest on the Bonds is exempt from all income taxation in Indiana. In the opinion of bond counsel, under the existing federal statutes, decisions,

regulations and rulings, the interest on the Bonds is excludable from gross income for purposes of federal income taxation. The School Corporation has prepared a preliminary official statement relating to the Bonds which it has deemed to be a nearly final official statement. A copy of the Preliminary Official Statement may be obtained from the Corporation's financial advisor, H.J. Umbaugh & Associates, Certified Public Accountants, LLP, 8365 Keystone Crossing, Suite 300, Indianapolis, Indiana 46240-0458. Within seven (7) business days of the sale, the School Corporation will provide the successful bidder with up to 40 copies of the final official statement at the School Corporation's expense. Additional copies, at the purchaser's expense, must be requested within five (5) business days of the sale. Inquiries concerning matters contained in the nearly final official statement must be made and pricing and other information necessary to complete the final Official Statement must be submitted by the successful bidder within two (2) business days following the sale to be included in the final official statement. The School Corporation has agreed to enter into a Continuing Disclosure Undertaking in order to permit the successful purchaser to comply with the SEC Rule 15(c)2-12. A copy of such Agreement is available from the School Corporation or financial advisor at the addresses below. Further information relative to said issue and a copy of the nearly final official statement may be obtained upon application to H.J.

for work. Newton asked Miller, a hospital nurse, to be her wife, and Miller said yes. The ceremony was attended by Miller’s son, his wife and their two children. The whole family then enjoyed a vacation while there. Miller was emotional in speaking about their love, marriage and life. “The lady who married us had my son, daughter-in-law and grandkids kiss our rings as a blessing, so that was really neat,� Miller said. The couple showed their heart-shaped rings, symbolic of their love they said they won’t let be denied. “Hearts have always been a symbol for us. They are very special,� Newton said. “When your whole life, because of sexual orientation, you feel like an outsider and your relationship isn’t recognized — we can be recognized,� Miler said. “We’ve worked very hard to cement our relationship. I’m legally her spouse and I can be there for her at the most crucial time. “I’d hope one thing people realize is we’re just people. Our sexual orientation has little to do with who we are,� Miller said. Newton added their marriage is like anyone else’s. Other than her brother, who Newton said hasn’t been able to celebrate their relationship due to his religious beliefs, their families have been supportive. Miller’s granddaughter and grandson served as flower girl and ring bearer at the ceremony.

Angola UCC OKs designation BY JENNIFER DECKER

ANGOLA — The Angola First Congregational United Church of Christ overwhelmingly voted to officially become Open and Affirming on Aug. 25. Open and Affirming is a UCC designation meaning all are welcome, including gay, lesbian and transgender individuals. While UCC has historically always welcomed everyone, the designation allows those seeking a church to know they are welcomed and will be embraced in a safe haven. “Open and Affirming was a two-year process,� said the Rev. Deb Davis, pastor of the First Congregational United Church of Christ. “The national setting of the United Church of Christ recommends it.� Davis said two members of her congregation approached her about wanting the designation for the church. The issue was taken to the church council, which approved doing a study on the issue. “We’ve lived this. This “Our granddaughter loves to say, ‘Gayle, look what your wife did’ or ‘Nana, look what your wife did,’ � Newton said. “My granddaughter’s biggest concern was what to wear and what she had to do and how many flowers to throw,� Miller said. “They’ve all been

church has always been open and affirming and inclusive. It really doesn’t change anything for us,� Davis said. “We did it for people to let them know this is safe to come to. Hopefully, it will let anyone know — this is who we are. You do it as a witness for GLBT and straight people.� Davis said now that the Angola church has the designation, an anonymous parishioner has offered to donate a sign specifying that for the public. During the two-year process, the church brainstormed and had dialogue, An author and Quaker minister, Phillip Gulley, visited and a panel discussion was held. “We had two or three questions and we brainstormed how would this change our church. We discussed pros and cons,� she said. “Zion UCC’s congregation came and had a panel discussion.� Zion UCC, South Bend, is already an Open and Affirming congregation. supportive. They love us.� Newton and Miller, said it is their dream that some day their marriage will be acknowledged in Indiana. In the meantime, they will live each day celebrating a marriage as wives to each other, wishing to be treated and valued as people.

KENYA: U.S., civilian personnel provide assistance FROM PAGE A1

Kenya’s Red Cross said the death toll on Sunday rose to 68 after nine bodies were recovered in a joint rescue mission. A United States State Department spokeswoman

condemned the “despicable massacre of innocent men, women and children.� U.S. law enforcement, military and civilian personnel in Nairobi were providing advance and assistance as requested by Kenya, spokes-

woman Marie Harf said. Somalia’s al-Qaida-linked rebel group, al-Shabab, claimed responsibility for the attack that specifically targeted non-Muslims. The attackers included some women.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Andrew Luck faked out the defense, ran untouched into the end zone for a 6-yard touchdown and emphatically threw down the ball with a little extra oomph. Even he thought it might be a career-best spike. “It was nice to score,” he said matter-of-factly of the moment. Jim Harbaugh’s former quarterback sure outplayed his current one, and it wasn’t even close. Luck passed for 164 yards while facing college coach Jim Harbaugh for the first time, and the Indianapolis Colts defeated the San Francisco 49ers 27-7 on Sunday. Trent Richardson scored a 1-yard touchdown on his first carry in his Colts debut after being acquired on Wednesday from the Browns. He was drafted two spots behind top-pick Luck last year. Ahmad Bradshaw added a 1-yard TD run in the final minutes, and Adam Vinatieri kicked a pair of field goals. Luck kept coming through again to give Indianapolis (2-1) more opportunities. “I know he’s grinning from ear to ear,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “I’ve never seen him smile the way he was smiling after this one.” This marked Colin Kaepernick’s

his first home loss at Candlestick Park as a starter. Frank Gore ran for 82 yards after going for 60 total in his first two games, but there were few bright spots for Kaepernick as San Francisco (1-2) struggled to

establish a passing game with tight end Vernon Davis sidelined by a hamstring injury. The defense committed numerous costly penalties for the third straight week. Luck completed his initial six passes and spoiled the home team’s

reunion day between coaches on both sides who know each other’s tendencies dating to their days at Stanford. The Colts sure appeared to be better prepared. Luck sent third-year coach Harbaugh to consecutive losses for the first time. He was happier about the fact his two sisters who attend Stanford got to see him play. “I wasn’t caught up in, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m going up against Coach Harbaugh, (Greg) Roman and (Vic) Fangio,” Luck said. “I figured any time you play this sport, coaches and players come and go so much that you always end up going against someone that you played for or played with or had a good relationship with.” Before Sunday, Harbaugh was 7-0 following a defeat — and Harbaugh faced criticism for playing and starting Aldon Smith two days after the linebacker was arrested and jailed on suspicion of driving under the influence and marijuana possession. 49ers CEO Jed York said after the game Smith would seek treatment and miss Thursday’s game at St. Louis and perhaps be away from the team longer. Smith apologized to “everybody I let down” while acknowledging he has a problem and will fix it.

Cup Series auto race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Sunday in Loudon, N.H.

Kenseth claims 2nd Cup race LOUDON, N.H. (AP) — Matt Kenseth just might win a championship with a touch of dominance, not dullness. Kenseth has firmly defended the style of his 2003 championship, stating his one-win season in the final year before NASCAR made the move to the playoff-style Chase format was as meaningful as all the titles collected by Jimmie Johnson or Tony Stewart. He probably won’t have to justify anything about his Cup run this season. There are plenty of checkered flags. Kenseth made it 2 for 2 in the Chase, holding off Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He followed his win in the Chase for the Sprint Cup champi-

onship opener at Chicagoland with his series-high seventh victory of the season. Kenseth made his 500th career start and built a 14-point lead over Busch before the series shifts to Dover. One win or seven, Kenseth will take a title any way he can. “If you’re fortunate enough to win a championship, or another championship, I don’t think there’s a bad way to win it,” he said. “I know it still gets brought up because it was the last year without the Chase and we won once race. But I was real proud of what we did that year. It was tough to accomplish.” Kenseth was paired with owner Jack Roush for more than a decade and won 22 races, a pair of Daytona 500s and the 2003 championship. He’s having a career year in his first season

at JGR, obliterating his previous season best for wins — 5 in 2002. “I don’t feel like I’m necessarily a better driver than what I was last year,” he said. “Certainly, things are different.” Just a little bit. His gamble to change teams has been a success, and Kenseth’s eyes glistened as tears rolled down his cheeks in Victory Lane. He reached for a big white towel to wipe them away. Neither side could have expected this kind of run. “We’ve known Matt for a long time but, in all reality, we wouldn’t have guessed seven wins,” team President J.D. Gibbs said. Kenseth was anxious heading into New Hampshire because it had long been one of his worst tracks.

ATLANTA (AP) — Henrik Stenson capped off the best stretch of his career Sunday with the biggest payoff in golf. Stenson held off a brief challenge by 20-year-old Jordan Spieth and closed with a 2-under 68 to win the Tour Championship by three shots over Spieth and Steve Stricker. The 37-year-old Swede also captured the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus. Stenson earned $1.44 million for winning the tournament. Stenson Stenson, who two years ago was outside the top 200, moved to No. 4 in the world. Spieth left one lasting impression on his remarkable rookie season. The youngest player in Tour Championship history ran off four straight birdies on the back nine at East Lake and pulled within one shot of Stenson with his 10-footer on the 16th. Spieth caught a buried lie in the bunker short of the 17th green and made bogey, while Stenson steadied himself with an 8-foot birdie on the par-5 15th to return his lead to three shots. Stenson only made it easy at the end with three pars — nearly holing out from the bunker right of the 16th green, hitting a scary shot from the right fairway bunker on the 17th to the middle of the green, and saving par from another bunker on the 18th.

Giants spoil day for Rivera, Pettitte NEW YORK (AP) — After honoring Mariano Rivera and celebrating Andy Pettitte, the New York Yankees saw their AL wild-card hopes dim Sunday with a crushing 2-1 loss to the San Francisco Giants. The Yankees held a 50-minute pregame ceremony and retired the No. 42 of Rivera, who announced during spring training that this will be his final season. Pettitte said Friday he also is leaving, and he started off with five hitless innings in what likely was his final Yankee Stadium start. But Ehire Adrianza tied the score in the sixth with his first career home run. Leaving to standing ovations and a curtain call after Pedro Sandoval’s leadoff double in the eighth, Pettitte (10-11) watched Tony Abreu

hit a go-ahead double off David Robertson. In danger of missing the playoffs for just the second time in 19 years, the Yankees dropped four back of Cleveland for the second AL wild card with six games left. New York hosts wild-card leading Tampa Bay for three games, then closes at Houston. In danger of finishing with a losing record for the first time in his 19-year career, Pettitte will make his final start against his hometown Astros. On a sun-splashed afternoon and before a sellout crowd of 49,197, the Yankees honored Rivera by bringing back several of the players who helped them win five World Series titles from 1996-09 — including Jorge

Posada, Bernie Williams, David Cone, Paul O’Neill and Tino Martinez. Pettitte initially retired after the 2010 season, sat out one year and then returned. And for much of the afternoon, Pettitte seemed on track for a vintage performance. The 41-year-old left-hander, a 255-game winner, was backed by Mark Reynolds’ third-inning homer and didn’t allow a baserunner until Sandoval’s two-out walk in the fifth. When Sandoval doubled to left in the eighth for the Giants’ second hit, Pettitte slammed his glove into his thigh in frustration when he saw manager Joe Girardi bounce out of the dugout.

FORT WAYNE — The East Noble girls soccer team tied South Side 0-0 on Saturday. Playing on a very wet soccer field the Knights controlled the ball most of the game. East Noble’s solid defense and midfield play kept goalie Vickie Nguyen watching most of a game, in which she only had to make five saves. The offense couldn’t quite get it together in the first half, but in the second half the Knights had some very good opportunities to score. Meghan Mazolla had a beautiful cross to the back post where Alex Rider was awaiting, but Rider just couldn’t get a solid foot on the ball making an easy save for the South Side keeper. Also, Janelle Wasson and Taylor Rex each had multiple break aways, but the goalie was true and made three saves while the other two shots went wide of the goal.

The Knights came into the match with a ton of confidence after several strong showings the past week at the Concord Invite, at Columbia City, and at Canterbury. The Knights used that confidence to jump out to a quick lead on Friday against the Falcons winning at the No. 2 singles, No. 1 doubles, and No. 2 doubles positions before a slight period of inclement weather hit. Jonathan Toles and Carl Kramer started slowly in the first set of the No. 1 doubles match winning 6-4 but quickly caught their stride finishing the second set with a 6-1 victory. The No. 2 doubles team of Brennen Biggins and Adam Albertin used their well-placed serves to transition to the net during their 6-1, 6-0 win. Evan Hart continued his very solid play at the No. 2 singles post as he cruised past his opponent with his patented baseline play, 6-3, 6-0.

Oracle wins twice to stay alive in America’s Cup SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Jimmy Spithill and his mates with Oracle Team USA were masterful in light air Sunday on San Francisco Bay, winning two races against Emirates Team New Zealand to stay alive in the America’s Cup. Oracle’s 72-foot catamaran jumped to huge leads in both races and has won four straight since the Kiwis reached match point on Wednesday. Oracle cut the Kiwis’ lead to 8-5. Docked two points in the biggest cheating scandal in the 162-year history of the America’s Cup, Oracle needs four more wins to keep the oldest trophy in international sports. Oracle won Race 14 by 23 seconds and then took Race 15 by 37 seconds. Oracle has won six of the last eight races after an awful start that led Spithill to replace American tactician John Kostecki with British Olympic star Ben Ainslie, who had been the helmsman of the backup boat.

Braves, Athletics, Cards officially in playoffs The Atlanta Braves, Oakland Athletics and St. Louis Cardinals can start planning for the playoffs. All three teams clinched postseason spots Sunday. They joined Boston and the Los Angeles Dodgers with guaranteed dates for October. The Braves won their first NL East crown since 2005 and the Athletics took their second straight AL West title. The Cardinals are still trying to win the NL Central, but are assured of at least a wild-card berth. With a week left in the regular season, the race for the two AL wild-card spots is still tangled. Tampa Bay is a half-game ahead of Cleveland, with Texas 1½ games behind the Indians. Kansas City, the New York and Baltimore are lagging farther behind. In the NL, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh are tied for the wild-card slots. In Chicago, the title was right there, across the front of the soaked gray T-shirts that each of the Atlanta Braves wore. “WE OWN THE EAST,” it read. The Braves wrapped up the NL East crown, and then rode two homers by Andrelton Simmons to a 5-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs that touched off a wild party in the cramped visitors’ clubhouse at Wrigley Field. The game was in the sixth inning when Washington lost 4-2 to Miami, giving the Braves their first division championship in eight years. There were a few high-fives in Atlanta’s dugout when the Marlins won, and a couple of Braves fans did the tomahawk chop in the stands. In Oakland, the Minnesota Twins have begun what could be a difficult ending to a difficult season. Oswaldo Arcia homered and drove in six RBIs as the Twins lost 11-7 Sunday to the Oakland Athletics, who celebrated a second straight AL West title. Minnesota could watch two more teams clinch postseason berths against them. The Twins open a three-game series against AL Central-leading Detroit before four final games against Cleveland, which is hoping to secure a wild-card spot. “They’re locked in right now. We aren’t,” said Twins starter Cole De Vries, who allowed six runs in two innings. Coco Crisp hit a three-run homer, Daric Barton and Jed Lowrie each had a solo shot and Oakland turned the Twins into a footnote during another scintillating September run. In Milwaukee, the St. Louis Cardinals clinched a playoff berth on the same day manager Mike Matheny turned 43. Neither milestone caused much of a stir. Washington’s 4-2 loss to Miami in a doubleheader opener Sunday assured the Cardinals of at least an NL wild-card berth. “We want to win the division and then go on and go deep into October,” first baseman Matt Adams said before Sunday night’s game against Milwaukee. The Reds beat the Pirates earlier Sunday 11-3, leaving both teams 2 1-2 games back of first-place St. Louis in the NL Central. There was no champagne on ice in the clubhouse for clinching a third straight trip to the postseason.

Getting information can be tough Much information has been coming out in the press lately about a variety of programs that are coming into play as the Affordable Care Act starts being implemented. Members of the Baltimore Ravens NFL football team “Indiana has done have helped market a terrible job at benefits of the Affordimplementing parts able Care of the Affordable Act (also known as Care Act.” Obamacare) to consumers in Maryland. Some states have sent out personnel into communities to sign up people for health insurance on behalf of state-run market places. Elsewhere, a variety of groups and professionals have been authorized to provide educational information about health insurance to consumers. A new federal program on the scale of Social Security is being rolled out. Hundreds of questions are being asked and much misinformation being disseminated by opponents to the law that was enacted in 2009. Unfortunately, in Indiana, we are not providing much official help to people who need to weave their way through the maze of questions and information necessary to move forward and be in compliance with the act. Oklahoma, Ohio and Indiana have defaulted to the federal government to run their exchange websites and are doing no education or marketing about new coverage options, Kaiser Health News reported. Education is being left to private, non-profit organizations and insurance professionals. Indiana has done a terrible job at implementing parts of the Affordable Care Act. Republican Gov. Mike Pence was one of the strong opponents to Obamacare when he served as a member of Congress. Indiana is one of a few states that has not opted to expand Medicaid under Obamacare. Our state was granted a one-year extension of the Healthy Indiana Plan, which only serves about 10 percent of the total that could receive health coverage — 400,000 people — were the federal plan implemented. Not only is Indiana denying health coverage to potentially thousands of people but our state government leaders are making little effort to inform the public about the act. This work is being left to non-profits — like Community Action of Northeast Indiana — who are working through the federal program. However, not all of the groups that have stepped to the plate have received proper training. Some might not be approved “navigators,” as they are called, when portions of Obamacare roll out next month, which is the start of registration for health exchanges. Luckily, CANI operates offices in all four of our local counties, so their personnel will hopefully be able to send people in the right direction to get information about health insurance exchanges. These approved navigators can show people information about health plans and their benefits and help consumers fill out applications. They can discuss premiums of the various plans. They are not allowed to provide information that would typically come from a licensed insurance agent. Insurance agents qualified to talk about the available plans can provide information, also. If you can’t find help through an organization like CANI or an insurance agent, head to the library and get on the computer. There should be much information available on federal websites.

• havoc on society. And what are the causes that lead to the breakdowns that lead to the slaughter? No wonder we’d rather limit magazine sizes. Much more difficult to process and “fix” are the multitude of factors that lead a sick person to seek company in death. What we know about such people is that they tend to be loners and narcissists (low self-esteem, lacking in empathy, quick to take offense and blame others) who act impulsively and seek attention (and revenge) in dramatic and public ways. That we have more such characters than we used to — or that they seem more inclined to act on their impulses — may have less to do with guns than with underlying cultural causes. No, I’m not singling out video games or family dissolution or any other single factor, though none should be excluded. If we don’t take a serious look at the environment that spawns these individuals, we’ll likely be having this same conversation another 30 years from now.

Daughter of murder victim being deceived DEAR ABBY: My granddaughter was murdered by her boyfriend. They had an 18-month-old daughter, “Bella.” All three were living together when he shot her, but we don’t know what room Bella was in when it happened. Another family member (I’ll call her Lucy) took Bella into her home, and Bella calls her Mom. Lucy has been taking Bella to the prison to visit her father, but has told her he is her uncle. I told Lucy I thought it would be better to wait until Bella is old enough to understand, THEN tell her what happened and let her decide whether she wants to visit her father. Bella went into the closet one day and came out holding a T-shirt with her mother’s picture on it, asking, “Who is this?” Lucy’s only response was, “You know you aren’t allowed in my closet. Take that back!” She never answered the question.




I have a framed photo of Bella’s mother on my wall. The last time Bella was here, I noticed her looking out of the corner of her eye and scowling at the picture. I was the only one who noticed. Bella is now 4, and I can’t DEAR accept that thinks ABBY Lucy it’s OK to lie to her. I feel it should Jeanne Phillips be Bella’s decision whether to visit her dad. Am I wrong? How should this be handled so Bella isn’t traumatized any more than need be? Because of these incidents, I’m almost convinced she should have some kind of counseling, but perhaps she’s too young. This

is why I desperately need advice, in the best interest of the child. — BELLA’S GREAT-GRANDMA DEAR GREAT-GRANDMA: Is Lucy a member of your family or the murderous boyfriend’s? I find it hard to comprehend that a family member of the victim would drag a toddler to a prison to visit the lowlife who killed her mother. I do not think it is healthy to lie to children. This situation will explode when Bella finally learns that the woman she has always called “Mom” isn’t her mother, and the man in the orange jumpsuit not only isn’t her uncle but killed her birth mother. That poor girl won’t know whom she can believe and could have trust issues that affect her relationships for the rest of her life. Does she need counseling now? No. But will she when she finds out about the deception? You bet!

For example, a doctor may do the exam to check the prostate in a man who complains of frequent urination. The digital rectal exam is useful for both men and women. It screens for disease by identifying potentially cancerous masses in the rectum, prostate or female genital organs. Examination of the female organs also requires a second finger in the vagina and a hand gently pushing on the abdomen.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I’m a healthy man in my 50s. I dread having a physical because of the digital rectal exam. What can the doctor even tell by doing this? Is it really necessary? DEAR READER: The digital rectal exam isn’t fun — I speak as both a doctor and patient. But it is a risk-free way to check for abnormalities of the anus, rectum and prostate gland. Your rectum is the last few inches of your bowel, just above the anus. As you know, during the exam, your doctor inserts a gloved and lubricated finger into your rectum. You may lie on your side on an exam table with your knees pulled up toward your chest. If that position isn’t comfortable, you can have the exam performed while you stand, bent over the exam table. As the doctor’s finger enters, you feel a pressure,


show up as visible blood in the bowel movement. Small amounts of bleeding are detected by chemical tests of the bowel movement. Many different conditions in the digestive tract can cause bleeding. Some are very serious, such as cancer. Others are not serious, such as hemorrhoids. So finding signs of blood in the bowel movement doesn’t tell the doctor what’s wrong; it just signals that there’s a problem. The digital rectal exam cannot feel most cancers of the intestine: They occur too far up in the large intestine for a finger to reach. Colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy and barium enemas (performed less often these days) can see cancers that the finger cannot feel. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

Surfing parks becoming the rage Wondering: What if Michael Jackson was still alive?

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Some of surfing’s biggest names aren’t just catching waves. They’re also talking about making them. Surf parks — massive pools with repeating, artificial waves — are the latest buzzword in the surf community, as everyone from top athletes to retailers look for ways to expand the sport, boost sales and create a standardized way to train that could help surfing earn an Olympic pedigree. “Mother Nature stipulates that surfing only can occur where waves can be born. When man takes his hand to forming the waves, it unlocks the potential of surfing anywhere. And that is the most powerful thing,” said Doug Palladini, president of the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association. This month, dozens of industry leaders, surfers and investors met in Laguna Beach in Southern California for the first annual Surf Park Summit to spark interest in a business proposition that could breathe life into a sport that struggled during the recession. About 50 percent of independent, mom-and-pop surf retailers — the heart and soul of surf culture — shut down worldwide during the recession and those that survived face an increasingly saturated market that is limited by geography. Enter the dream surf park, a 2-acre wave pool capable of generating anything from tiny beginner

ripples to 10-foot barrels every minute, with every wave the same. Customers would pay by the number of waves to learn the sport or refine their technique and learn new tricks. The prospect has surf board manufacturers and apparel retailers salivating at the thought of new markets for surf gear and clothing in land-locked places like Kansas or Nebraska. But parks would also be prime real estate for sponsored surfing competitions that would draw both eyeballs and dollars. At the summit, speakers

wave-sharing that you can imagine.” Olympics aside, everyday surfers who already live near the beach say even they would use the parks as a supplement to the ocean, to refine their skills on a consistent wave or get in a few rides when the natural surf is bad. “In a park, you can always get in a perfect position, the wave will always be perfect and you can really work on your surfing,” said Cliff Char, 54, who’s been surfing 15 years near his hometown of Seal Beach.

tossed out tantalizing what-ifs: A national surfing league, much like the NBA, with feeder teams and city affiliations. Live, televised surfing competitions staged with predictable waves in a massive surf arena. Some even believe surf parks could propel the sport into the Olympics, a dream that has so far proven elusive. “Without man-made waves, there will not be Olympic surfing,” said Fernando Aguerre, president of the International Surfing Association. “It’s the ultimate

LOS ANGELES (AP) — If Michael Jackson was/ were still alive today, he would have just celebrated his 55th birthday and the world would know the outcome of his comeback efforts. He might be embarking on a new career in filmmaking and probably would be nudging his eldest son in the same direction. As a trial pursued by the singer’s mother against the promoters of Jackson’s planned comeback concerts draws to a close, jurors may soon be considering intriguing what-ifs had the King of Pop lived. Throughout the trial, which has spanned 21 weeks and more than 50 witnesses, the panel of six men and six women has heard evidence about Jackson’s ambitions and his undisputed devotion for his three children and mother. If jurors determine that AEG Live LLC is liable for Jackson’s death, the group will then have to decide how much to compensate the singer’s three children and his mother for the loss of a loving father and an entertainer potentially capable of earning tens of millions of dollars a year. In order to award Jackson’s family any money, the panel would have to determine that AEG Live hired the doctor convicted of adminis-

tering an overdose of the anesthetic propofol in June 2009. AEG denies it hired former cardiologist Conrad Murray or bears any responsibility for Jackson’s death. The company’s lawyers point to evidence that Murray treated Jackson for years before preparations for the “This Is It” shows began and testimony that the singer was secretive about his medical care. Yet whether or not the jury will need to determine compensation for Jackson’s family, the trial has revealed new details about the superstar’s post-tour plans. Witnesses have described the entertainer’s interest in another career as a filmmaker after wrapping up his “This Is It” shows, which were slated to begin in July 2009. The singer’s contract included provisions for a worldwide tour after the singer completed a run of 50 shows planned at London’s O2 Arena, but AEG executives say the global shows weren’t a certainty. Experts hired by Jackson’s mother have testified Jackson could have earned a billion dollars or more on a worldwide tour, a figure that defense experts have attacked as speculative and far in excess of earnings from the singer’s previous tours.
