New autumn fest to debut BY JENNIFER DECKER

ANGOLA — Organizers of this weekend’s Autumn in Angola Fall Festival are hoping to rake in the public to discover all the city has to offer. The newly named festival has a different organizer and diverse activities planned Friday through Sunday. Go Angola Downtown Alliance took over running the annual event after the Angola Area Chamber

of Commerce decided to change its focus to promoting member events. Go Angola changed the event’s name from Fall Fest to Autumn In Angola Fall Festival to give it a fresh start. “Everyone has busted their butts on this,” said Kim Bordner, Go Angola treasurer. Earlier this year, there was public outcry after the chamber opted to discontinue organizing the longtime Angola annual festival. SEE AUTUMN, PAGE A2

WASHINGTON (AP) — Tea party conservative Sen. Ted Cruz ended his all-night talkathon to dismantle President Barack Obama’s health care law after 21 hours and 19 minutes as legislation required to avert a partial government shutdown at midnight Monday easily cleared an initial Senate hurdle. Weary after a day and night on his feet, Cruz simply sat down at 12 noon EDT on Wednesday, the predetermined time for the Senate to adjourn, as several of his colleagues applauded. Senate Republicans and some House members congratulated the Texas freshman. Cruz actually joined every other senator in a 100-0 procedural vote to allow the measure to officially be lain before the Senate. He says Republicans should rally against the measure in a vote scheduled Friday or Saturday on whether to cut off a filibuster on the measure itself, a vote that promises to give Democrats controlling the chamber a procedural edge if Cruz is not successful in blocking them.

Teacher Creativity Fellowship grants used by Steuben County teachers over the summer. BY AMY OBERLIN

ANGOLA — Zip lines, sea turtles and black sand beaches awaited Shawn Snyder as she departed this summer for a three-week get-away. Snyder, an Angola Middle School teacher, received a Lilly Endowment Teacher Creativity Fellowship grant, which she used to study Spanish in the Spanish-speaking country of Costa Rica. As part of the package she got to do one of her favorite things — diving. Also an environmentalist, the trip allowed her to explore a biologically diverse and beautiful country. This year, Lilly Endowment gave 100 $10,000 grants to teachers, principals and assistant principals. Their projects are meant to be personally renewing and intellectually revitalizing. Snyder is one of three teachers in Steuben County who received the award. She applied for the grant at the urging of fellow middle school science teacher Paul Beckwith, who has gone on some Lilly sponsored summer adventures himself. Snyder wanted a fitness and spa component, specifically with the opportunity to scuba dive, while increasing her command of the Spanish language. She said she had a great student last year who she was unable to communicate with well due to the language barrier. Snyder’s degree is in marine biology from Palm Beach SEE SNYDER, PAGE A8

Molesting trial is underway BY AMY OBERLIN

ANGOLA — A 15-year-old girl who was allegedly repeatedly molested was the first to take the stand Wednesday afternoon in a Steuben Superior Court trial. A 12-person jury was seated by late morning from a pool of 51 people who appeared for the trial of Nicolas D. Duesler, 28, of Duesler Garrett. The girl, who was 14 at the time Duesler allegedly had sexual intercourse with her, retold her experiences through questioning by Steuben County Prosecutor Michael Hess and Duesler’s Fort Wayne attorney Samuel Bolinger. Also taking the stand Wednesday afternoon were two expert witnesses and the victim’s 13-year-old cousin — who Duesler allegedly gave synthetic marijuana and cigarettes the day one of the incidents allegedly occurred. Duesler is charged with four counts of Class B felony sexual misconduct with a minor. Each charge carries up to a 20-year prison term. The trial continues today. According to testimony, the girl had been living with family SEE TRIAL, PAGE A2

Fremont weighs breaking top student tie BY JENNIFER DECKER

FREMONT — Fremont High School finds itself with what’s likely a nice problem with its senior class. Fremont High School Principal Mark Sherbondy told the Fremont Community Schools Board of Education at a special Tuesday meeting the problem is two students are tied for top academic honors. He discussed with the board how to handle it. Sherbondy asked for clarification if those two students are tied at the end of the third

SEE PAGE A2 quarter, when the valedictorian is determined, if they would both share that honor and no salutatorian would be chosen. “We have two students tied at the top with a perfect 4.0. We don’t differentiate between A’s and A-pluses,” Sherbondy said. “We do have a policy distinguishing between the valedictorian and salutatorian by totaling their

grades and adding dual-enrollment credits.” Sherbondy said calling the race a tie could cause problems as both students might not necessarily choose classes geared for their future or to pursue interests. It could also set a future precedent. “I want students to go after their interests,” Sherbondy said. “I would be a huge supporter, but we need to follow policy,” said Sheri Thomson, board president. “I’d be open to a policy change.” Tim Knoblauch, another board member, said the key is defining what exactly a valedictorian is.

“It’s become high stakes,” Knoblauch said. Sherbondy said he hasn’t had the problem of co-valedictorians in the 10 years he’s been principal, but said it has happened before in the high school’s history. “It’s going to make me look at policy and make it more distinctive by putting a policy in place so we reward dual credits,” Sherbondy said. “I’m comfortable with the distinction.” The board opted to go with policy and come up with a tie-breaking method if the students remain tied after the third quarter.

members at a Broad Street residence, where Duesler and his girlfriend also stayed. Duesler had an apartment on Washington Street, and that is where three of the four incidents allegedly took place. The first time was shortly after the victim’s 14th birthday, according to court records. The girl described walking to the apartment with Duesler and her cousin, who then was sent away by Duesler. She said Duesler took her to the rear of the apartment, removed her clothes and had sexual intercourse with her on a bed. She said it took about two minutes. The following two incidents were described in much the same way by the girl — who has a mild cognitive disability

according to Metropolitan School District of Steuben County Special Education Coordinator Kathy Bahr. The final incident allegedly occurred in the Broad Street residence in Duesler’s girlfriend’s bed. The case was filed Sept. 28, 2012, after the girl’s parents became aware of the alleged activity. She was taken to Cameron Memorial Community Hospital, where she was examined by sexual assault nurse examiner Kathy Dirrim. Dirrim said there was no evidence of injury and that she could not determine that intercourse had occurred. While the girl contends she had sex with Duesler, Bolinger attempted to discredit her testimony. There were some significant variations between interviews with court officials, the Department

of Child Services report and her testimony on Wednesday. When asked if she “liked” Duesler, the victim testified “no.” When asked if she had feelings for him, she said, “Not really.” She said she didn’t know how she felt about him as she sat there on the stand with him at the defendant’s table. A journal that the victim kept at school seems to show she had feelings for Duesler. “She really, really cared about him,” said Hess in his opening arguments. “She wanted to go move away to Florida with him when she turned 18.” The jury was able to read the many-paged journal, photocopied along with its Hannah Montana cover with the title “Secret Star.” On one page, there was a hand-drawn heart with an

arrow through it. In his cross-examination of the victim, Bolinger asked her to read an entry from Sept. 14, 2012. She read, “I still miss you and I hate my parents and my aunt because all they do to me is hit me.” Duesler spent time with the victim and her cousins during the daytime hours when other family members were working, according to testimony. They watched TV, played games and went for bike rides. The girl’s cousin testified that he smoked spice with Duesler. The boy also testified that after walking to Duesler’s apartment with him and the victim, Duesler sent him back to the Broad Street home for a lap top. About 10 minutes later when he returned, the door was locked, he said, and Duesler did not answer it.

AUTUMN: New downtown Angola festival has much to offer visitors FROM PAGE A1

This year’s festival will have an entirely original flavor in addition to a new name. Gone is the beer tent. Instead, Go Angola opted to let downtown establishments serving alcohol be patronized. “We’re excited with spreading the wealth with businesses,” Bordner said. Lee Ann Snyder, the festival’s organizer, said the focus in planning was to bring in new entertainers and some from Angola to offer a nice mix and avoid repeating prior year entertainers. Snyder said art and handmade crafts have been added, all with an emphasis on fun — mostly free — and a family-oriented festival. Friday night’s kickoff party will be held at Commons Park. The public is invited to bring a picnic, sit back and listen to the band Elements, which will perform 6-10 p.m. on the Roman Beer Stage. Classic car fans are invited to show off their wheels with a cruise-in. Also Friday, the Steuben County Literacy Coalition will hold its annual Lift Off For Literacy fundraiser at dusk, when some 100 sky lanterns are released. Proceeds from the sponsored sky lanterns will help support various coalition educational programs. No festival is complete without entertainment. The main stage lineup on Saturday will feature a

Fremont hires business manager BY JENNIFER DECKER

FREMONT — The new corporate business manager for the Fremont Community Schools is a veteran educator and current administrator. Brandon Penrod, currently assistant principal at Manchester Junior-Senior High School, was hired by the Fremont Schools Board of Education at a special meeting Tuesday. His first day at Fremont will be Oct. 7. Penrod formerly was athletic director at Prairie Heights High School. He has experience as business manager with the Northern Wells Community Schools. Penrod’s hiring is due to the retirement of current business manager Dick Wirtz at the end of this month. In other business, Wirtz said the corporation projected an enrollment of 956 students but the September count showed 946 in the district. “Our enrollment did drop from June to the September count,” said Superintendent Lori Vaughn. In an unrelated matter, the board accepted the donation of $2,000 from the Fremont Moose Lodge to the Fremont High School wrestling team for purchase of a mat.

Film documents rise of environmental movement EARTH TALK From E — The Environmental Magazine

“A Fierce Green Fire” is a new film documenting the rise of the modern environmental movement from the 1960s through the present day. It premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival and will be playing at select theaters across the country beginning this month. Educators, environmental groups and grassroots activists also will be showing the film at small and large events from coast to coast over the course of the fall. Written and directed by Mark Kitchell, Academy Award-nominated director of Berkeley in the Sixties, “A Fierce Green Fire” is based on the 1993 book of the same name by environmental journalist Philip Shabecoff. The phrase “A Fierce Green Fire” refers to a longer passage in one of the seminal environmental books of the 20th century, 1949’s A Sand County Almanac. In the famous “Think Like a Mountain” section of that book, author Aldo Leopold relates his experience as part of a predator extirpation team that shoots a wolf in the New Mexico desert: “We reached the old wolf in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes. “I realized then and have known ever since that there was something new to me in those eyes, something known only to her and to the mountain. I was young then and full of trigger-itch; I thought that because fewer wolves meant more deer, that no wolves would mean hunters’ paradise. But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view.” Kitchell’s film shows how this passage and other writings were instrumental in raising awareness about the importance of wise stewardship of the natural environment and as such played a crucial role in the re-birth of the environmental movement in the 1960s. Featuring five “acts,” each with its own central story and character, the film depicts a central environ-

INDIANAPOLIS — Hunters in Indiana can expect another productive deer season in 2013, but probably not as productive as last year’s record setter. Hoosier deer hunters in 2012 harvested 136,248 deer. The deer harvest record has been broken in four of the last five seasons, a trend that DNR deer research biologist Chad Stewart doesn’t expect to continue in 2013. “It wouldn’t surprise me if it was down a little this year,” Stewart said. “But I don’t expect the harvest numbers to fall off a cliff. There will still be plenty of deer out there.” The 2013 overall deer hunting season began

A new film by Academy Award-nominated Mark Kitchell, based on a 1993 book by Phil Shabecoff, documents the rise of the modern environmental movement from the 1960s through the present day.

mental conflict of each decade since the 1960s. The first act, narrated by Robert Redford, focuses on David Brower and the Sierra Club’s battle to halt dams in the Grand Canyon in the 1960s. Act two, narrated by Ashley Judd, tells the story of Lois Gibbs and other Niagara Falls, New York residents’ struggle against pollution buried beneath their Love Canal neighborhood in the 1970s. Act three is all about Greenpeace and efforts by Captain Paul Watson to save whales and baby harp seals, as told by Van Jones. Chico Mendes and Brazilian rubber tappers take center stage in Act four, as narrated by Isabel Allende, in their fight to save their Amazon rainforest. Lastly, Act five focuses on Bill McKibben, as told by Meryl Streep, and the 25-year effort to address the foremost issue of our time: climate change. Intertwined within these main stories are strands including the struggle for environmental justice, getting “back to the land,” and sustainability efforts in the developing world. The film ends on an optimistic note, driving home the


point that environmentalism is really about civilizational change and bringing industrial society into balance with nature and that each of us can make a difference with a little effort. Those interested in seeing the film should check out the schedule of theatrical releases at the film’s website, The website also features more information on the film and features historical photos of some of the scenes and events depicted in it. Anyone who wants to find out more about the the makings of the modern environmental movement should be sure to see “A Fierce Green Fire.”

October is the time of year when hunters and anglers face an existential crisis. Should you head to the marsh for ducks? Try for big king salmon in the St. Joseph River? Or pick-up a bow and sit in a tree stand for deer? All options beckon to each of us. To a diehard waterfowler the Oct. 19 opening of the duck season is the most JAMES H. important day of the PHILLIPS year. The shooting focuses mostly on locally hatched mallards and wood ducks, although a few migrant green-winged teal are likely to approach our decoys. The most alluring aspect of opening day is the lack of wariness on the part of the ducks. Early season fowl are easy to decoy, easy to call. Once the shooting starts, it doesn’t take long for the birds to wise up. Migrant ducks arriving later in the year generally have been educated by northern-state shooters. Many casual hunters invade the marshes for the opener. These sports find it easy on opening weekend to bag an unwary duck or two. But they often create

crowded conditions on local lakes and potholes. Along the St. Joseph River in South Bend and Mishawaka king salmon will arrive on their upstream spawning run from Lake Michigan. Angling for these enormous fish can be sensational. Not only are they plentiful during the peak run, but they are big, for most anglers kings represent the biggest fish they will catch all year. A big king can weigh 40 pounds. Kings will test your tackle. They often make long, fast runs. All you can do is hold on while line vanishes from your reel at an alarming rate. If possible, it is advisable to get downstream from a hooked fish. This will make it run upstream. It will have to fight both the current and the pull of your rod and tire sooner. The early run of so-called Skamania-strain king salmon a few weeks ago proved much stronger than in the past few years, making anglers ecstatic. Fly-fishermen found them especially winning to strike small, black flies. What the coming run of late-season salmon will be like remains a guess. Twin Bridges and Leeper Park along the St. Joe offer exciting possibilities, as does the Dowagiac River below the Pucker Street

dam across the state line at Niles, Michigan. You can wade or fish from the bank. Finally, there is what for many hunters is the crème-de-la-creme — white-tail deer. I believe many archers go afield on Oct. 1 mostly to enjoy the outdoors. The odds of bagging a big buck are slim because deer are not “on the move,” as hunters say. Also, many hide in the standing corn. The best chance for success comes during the mating season or rut in November when the bucks are on the prowl and looking for does. But every year a few archers manage to bag a big buck early in the season. October hunters are more likely to encounter does and young bucks, which provide venison for the table. Whatever your choice, October is the month when you can pick and choose the quarry of your choice. The weather is pleasant. The fall foliage will color the landscape. And, yes, the mosquitoes will still be out. But no month of the calendar can compare to October. It’s the time of plenty.

extending archery season, allowing crossbows for all archery hunters and creating a “license bundle” that saved hunters money. “A reduced deer harvest would mean we are making progress,” Stewart said. The 2013 license bundles give the additional option of harvesting either two antlerless deer and a buck or three antlerless deer. Last year’s record deer harvest happened even as epizootic hemorrhagic disease was reported in 67 of 92 Indiana counties. The outbreak killed many deer before hunting season began, especially in northern Indiana. This year 15 counties have reported EHD.

As a result, reproduction was likely down this year compared to previous years. Stewart emphasized that reducing the deer population to a more balanced level has been the DNR’s goal in recent years. Changes to hunting regulations that went into effect in 2012 were geared toward that goal. The changes included

Naomi loved children, “digging in the dirt” in her beautiful flower gardens, spending time with family at Lake Manitou, and sporting events including attending the Kokomo High School 1961 state basketball championship game.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The cost of buying health insurance through Indiana’s federal exchange neither as expensive as detractors expected, nor as cheap as supporters have surmised, according to rates released by the federal government Wednesday. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services report included data for 36 states whose online marketplaces are being run by the federal government. More than 500,000 Indiana residents are expected to be eligible to buy insurance through the exchange. Enrollment begins next week, and the state’s wide range of rates starts at under $100 per month for some single adults and goes up to more than $1,000 for a family of four. A 27-year-old individual would pay anywhere from $168 a month for bare-bones “catastrophic” coverage to $332 monthly for the cheapest of highesttier “gold” plans. And a hypothetical family of four with the second-lowest “silver” plan could pay up to $961 a month. However, tax credits for middle- to lower-income single adults and families will drop those costs significantly. “Indiana is not the highest, and Indiana not the lowest, but you’re definitely going to be offering some new, affordable health care than what’s been offered in the past,” said David Roos, executive director of Covering Kids and Families of Indiana. The advance look at rates comes a week before Indiana’s exchange, where residents can comparison-shop for coverage, is set to open. Gov. Mike Pence, a vociferous opponent of President Barack Obama’s federal health care law while serving in Congress, opted last year to let the Centers

for Medicare and Medicaid Services set up and run Indiana’s exchange. State officials, however, have beefed up the number of Medicaid caseworkers and been running tests on the technical infrastructure. Republican lawmakers also approved a plan earlier this year that made Indiana one of a handful of states to require background checks and additional certification for “navigators,” whose job is to help residents choose coverage. Beginning January 1, residents will have to own insurance, pay a penalty or show they qualify for a special exemption from the federal mandate. Throughout the extensive partisan debates over the law, one of the most pressing questions has been: How much will it cost? The data released Wednesday, which is based off rate plans submitted by the insurance companies which will sell through the exchanges, shows a wide range of possibilities in each of the four categories. In Indiana, four insurers will be offering 34 different plans. For example, an individual can choose from $200 a month for “bronze” coverage, $258 a month for “silver” coverage and $332 a month for “gold” coverage. But if that person earns $25,000 — a little more than double the federal poverty level — federal subsidies will cut the cost of the “silver” coverage by roughly $120 a month. A hypothetical family of four earning $50,000 would pay $282 a month for a federally subsidized “silver” plan. HHS only provided general benchmarks Wednesday, so specific quotes would vary based on myriad factors for anyone buying through the exchange.

Price of stamp may increase to 49 cents WASHINGTON (AP) — It soon could cost 49 cents to mail a letter. The postal Board of Governors said Wednesday it wants to raise the price of a first-class stamp by 3 cents, citing the agency’s “precarious financial condition” and the uncertain prospects for postal overhaul legislation in Congress. “Of the options currently

available to the Postal Service to align costs and revenues, increasing postage prices is a last resort that reflects extreme financial challenges,” board chairman Mickey Barnett wrote customers. The rate proposal must be approved by the independent Postal Regulatory Commission. If the commission accepts it, the increase would become effective Jan. 26.

Our Letter Policy •

Police shooting tragic reminder of value of those who serve It was another domestic violence call, the kind of summons for help that police officers in this city and elsewhere respond to every day, almost every shift. But this call cost Rod Bradway his life early Friday morning on the city’s Northwestside. The five-year veteran of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department — a husband and father of two teenagers — was shot and killed when he answered a woman’s screams for help inside an apartment at the Eagle Point complex in Pike Township. Police say a man in the apartment — identified as 24-year-old Steven Byrdo — shot at Bradway, who fired back. Another officer killed the suspect. Bradway died soon after at Wishard Hospital. But the woman and a child in the apartment whom he rushed to rescue are safe. So often we take so much for granted about the men and women who patrol our streets, race to emergencies, enter dangerous settings day after day. Those dangers have been especially acute this summer, with homicides on the rise and other violence erupting regularly in neighborhoods throughout the city. “The ongoing problem we have today is that we live in such a violent culture and so many people are carrying guns,” the Rev. Charles Harrison, who leads a crime prevention group, the Ten Point Coalition, said Friday morning. “There is no regard for life, and police officers have to face that every day.” Rod Bradway faced that reality Friday morning. A dispute. A gun in the hands of an angry man. A flash of violence. Lives lost, and others forever changed. The utter senselessness of it all is heart-breaking. The fact that such violence has become so routine, here and elsewhere, as to be no longer truly shocking is appalling. By chance, city leaders have been locked in debate in recent weeks about how to raise the money to put more police officers on the streets and how to better compensate those who now serve. Given fiscal constraints, those aren’t easy questions to answer. But Friday’s tragedy is a reminder of just how much we should value our police officers, how much they risk every day, how often as a community we need to say thank you to those who serve. The Indianapolis Star

War’s ugliest side shown in Pakistan Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman got it right: War is hell. There’s not much gallant or noble about it. It’s blood and body parts and wailing. “Collateral damage” is the sanitized way to describe the suffering of innocent bystanders. On Sunday, 78 civilians died in the most horrific attack yet on Pakistan’s Christian minority. A pair of suicide bombers blew themselves up amid hundreds of worshippers at the historic All Saints Church in Peshawar. The Jundullah arm of the Taliban claimed responsibility, saying they would continue to target non-Muslims until the United States stops drone attacks on Taliban forces in Pakistan’s remote tribal region. The U.S. has carried out several hundred drone attacks against militants and their allies near the Afghan border. The latest came on the same day as the church attack, when missiles hit two compounds in the North Waziristan tribal area,. Six suspected militants died. The church bombing injured 141 people, including 37 children. The death count included 34 women and seven children. It may not be tactically correct to do so, but it’s hard to overlook the imbalance: Six dead on one side, 78 on the other. Targeting innocent people “is against the teachings of Islam and all religions,” the Pakistani prime minister said. One of the problems of the nasty business of warfare is that it can be hard to tell who the innocent ones are. But it’s certain that those who died at All Saints Church didn’t go around killing people. Paris (Tenn.) Post-Intelligencer

Area legislators remember state Rep. Phyllis Pond BY ERIN PABODY

For the past 35 years, state Rep. Phyllis Pond faithfully served Hoosiers of northeast Indiana. She was the longest serving female state representative in the history of Indiana and the first female lawmaker to earn a seat in the front row in the House Chamber. Here are some of the memories shared by several area legislators. State Rep. Ben Smaltz, R-Auburn: “Phyllis was a great stateswoman and public servant. She helped Hoosiers for many years. During my first session, I noticed that when she had something to say, everyone took notice and listened. It was her institutional memory and experience with a variety of legislative

Guest Column • matters that helped the House of Representatives navigate some difficult policy issues in a productive and effective way. I am glad to have had the chance to know her, and I appreciate all she did for Indiana.” State Rep. Kathy Heuer, R-Columbia City: “Phyllis and I shared a condo my first three years in the state legislature, and I could not have asked for a better mentor. I loved coming home after a day in the General Assembly and talking about the bills we had heard or were working on. She would sit in her favorite chair and say, ‘Let me tell you how this all started and

who was involved.’ “Of all the things she taught me, three things rise to the top: Never think you have all the answers, always listen more than you talk, and always be sure you understand both sides of any issue. I will miss this lady warrior who right to the end had Allen County on her mind. She was fair, honest and ahead of her time.” State Rep. David Ober, R-Albion: “Some of the best words of wisdom I ever received came from Phyllis. She once told me to listen more than I speak. As simple as that sounds, it actually holds great weight — especially since we are elected to act as the voice of our districts. “I looked to Phyllis as a

mentor and always took her counsel seriously. She saw our state through the bad times and the good; through being in the minority and the majority; through poor economic conditions and times of plenty. Her presence in the House, her district and Indiana will be greatly missed.” As we remember Phyllis in the days and weeks ahead, we will each reflect on her legacy of commitment to the community and dedicated service, and do our part to carry it with us for years to come. ERIN PABODY is press secretary with the Republican Caucus, based in Indianapolis.

Mystery always surrounds detective writing I read and watch a lot of million — more than 50 percent detective stories, and the type I higher than Honduras,” the current really enjoy are place-centered. murder capital of the world.

So does London, you, there was a pretty and for some reason, rural good chance that you England.

It’s a surprise that no crime that takes place in one turned “Murder, one of the “stately homes of JIM She Wrote” into one England.” of those ultra-violent But now, for every MULLEN video games. Instead of mystery story that takes shooting people, though, place in a big city, there in this game you would seems to be one that takes simply walk Jessica place in a small town. The Fletcher through a small king of that, on television at least, town and people would start falling was “Murder, She Wrote,” which over dead as she passed. If she ever was set in the fictional town of bothered to turn around, she’d see a Cabot Cove, Maine. During the trail of dead bodies. show’s 12-year run, 274 people Craig Johnson writes a were murdered in a town of series of very entertaining roughly 3,500. According to the mysteries featuring no-nonLondon Daily Mail, “This gives it sense, good-hearted Sheriff Walt an annual murder rate of 1,490 per Longmire, which has been turned

into a TV series called, as you might expect, “Longmire.” All the action takes place in fictional Absaroka County, Wyo. — another tiny, out-of-the-way place with more elk than people — but the carnage is equal to any gang-riddled city. Writing on the website, Ben Lindbergh reports that in Sheridan County, the actual sparsely populated Wyoming county where the author lives, there have only been five murders in 12 years. In the TV series, there have been 27 murders in 22 episodes spanning a few months’ time. If that were really true, Wyoming would have to change its slogan from “Like No Place on Earth” to “Like Shooting Fish in a Barrel.” The late detective writer Robert B. Parker’s Jesse Stone is the off-again, on-again police chief of the small town of Paradise, Mass. New York, Chicago and L.A. put together don’t have as much crime as Paradise, but not to worry: It’s all taken care of by a four-person police department that still has time to write traffic tickets and work regular hours.

Every state in the union has detective writers that fill their books with local color and regional quirks of speech and action, but you don’t have any local detective fiction if you don’t have any local crime. In big cities they can rip the stories from the headlines. In Manhattan, anything less than a triple murder won’t even make the newspapers; even then, a celebrity or a politician has to be involved, no matter how distantly, before it will get any coverage. “Mayor’s Third Cousin, Twice Removed, Gets DUI!” But an uncomplicated, celebrity-less gangland killing? Nothing. In small towns, it’s just the opposite. The brave sheriff has to keep the gangs from moving in in the first place. The world-weary veteran detective sends the mafia bosses scattering. The real mystery isn’t whodunnit, but why is it so easy to believe that small towns could have such huge crime waves. JIM MULLEN is a syndicated columnist with Newspaper Enterprise Association.

Briefs • Release of 911 tapes from Sandy Hook shootings ordered HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The state’s Freedom of Information Commission on Wednesday ordered the release of the 911 tapes from last year’s shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, ruling in favor of an appeal by The Associated Press for access to records withheld by investigators. The recordings could shed light on the law enforcement response to one of the worst school shootings in U.S. history. The FOI panel accepted the recommendation of its hearing officer, Kathleen Ross, who last month rejected an argument from prosecutors that releasing the tapes could harm the investigation into the Dec. 14 massacre. Prosecutors said they would appeal the commission’s ruling in Connecticut’s courts.

U.S. signs treaty to regulate arms deals UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The United States, the world’s largest arms dealer, has joined 106 other nations in signing a treaty that regulates global arms trading, but there is strong resistance in the Senate, which must ratify it. Secretary of State John Kerry, who signed the Arms Trade Treaty on Wednesday, said it was a “significant step” in preventing terrorists and others from obtaining conventional weapons. The Obama administration’s move is seen as critical to the treaty’s success. The U.S. was the 91st country to sign, but the treaty will not take effect until 50 nations have ratified it. Only six had ratified the treaty as of Wednesday.

People • Fey coming back for SNL opener NEW YORK (AP) — When “Saturday Night Live” returns this weekend for its 39th year, executive producer Lorne Michaels won’t be fretting. “We’re gonna do a good show,” he declared. “Every time Tina has come back, the show’s been great.” He’s talking about former “SNL” regular and frequent guest Tina Fey, of Fey course, back again to host this season premiere (Saturday at 11:30 p.m. EDT on NBC, with musical guest Arcade Fire). Joining Michaels for a phone interview on Tuesday, Fey laughingly labeled “a coincidence” her presence on any good shows she’s guest hosted. But she offered a couple of ways she might be serving “SNL” well this week. “One, I have nothing to promote,” she promised, “so we’ve got plenty of time for other things. “Two, I’m always happy to play straight person, so, hopefully, the cast will get to do more than when they have other kinds of hosts. You might get to see those new guys more. Although I’m not promising their parents anything.” The “new guys” are the half-dozen rookie cast members — Beck Bennett, John Milhiser, Kyle Mooney, Mike O’Brien, Noel Wells and Brooks Wheelan.



Pakistan struggles in aftermath of quake DALBADI, Pakistan (AP) — Rescuers struggled Wednesday to help thousands of people injured and left homeless after their houses collapsed in a major earthquake in southwestern Pakistan, while the death toll from the massive temblor there rose to 285. The earth moved with enough force to create a small island visible off the southern coast when the magnitude 7.7 quake struck in the remote district of Awaran in Pakistan’s Baluchistan province Tuesday. At least 373 people were also injured in the quake, according to a statement from the National Disaster Management Authority, which also gave the latest death toll. The quake flattened wide swathes of Awaran. Most of the victims were killed when their houses collapsed. In the hard-hit village of Dalbadi, Noor Ahmad said he was working when the quake struck but swiftly rushed home, only to find his house leveled to the ground and his wife and son

dead. He said he pulled their bodies from the rubble and helped other family members who were injured. “I’m broken. I have lost my family,” he said. Dalbadi was completely flattened. No one in the village knew exactly how many people the quake had killed there. Men, women and children were sitting in makeshift shelters. Doctors treated some of the injured, but due to a scarcity of medicine and staff, they were mostly seen comforting the residents. The remoteness of the area and the lack of infrastructure have hampered the relief efforts. “We are finding it very difficult to reach the affected remote areas,” said a spokesman for the provincial government, Jan Mohammad Bulaidi. “We need more tents, more medicine and more food.” He said people who lost limbs in the quake would need to be sent to hospitals in the major cities of Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan

had collapsed, walls and roofs caved in and people’s possessions were scattered on the ground. A few goats roamed through the wreckage as men dug through the rubble. In images shown on

Pakistani television, an unidentified man who appeared to be injured in his leg was shown supported by two men helping him walk. He said he was drinking tea when he heard a loud bang: “It shook everything.”

New Kindle Fire improves display SEATTLE (AP) — Amazon is refreshing its lineup of tablet computers with new devices called Kindle Fire HDX, which are significantly faster and lighter than the previous generation. The 7-inch and 8.9-inch versions also have sharper, more colorful displays than older models, and both have more pixels per inch than the latest iPad. To help those who are unfamiliar with tablets, the new Kindles come with a feature called “Mayday,” which allows users to summon a live customer service representative in a tiny video window. The helpers can explain new features or troubleshoot problems while guiding users with on-screen hand

scribbles. They can even take control of the device from afar. CEO Jeff Bezos introduced the feature to reporters Tuesday, saying it is “completely unique” and takes advantage of Amazon’s massive cloud computing and customer service infrastructure. It also builds on Amazon. com Inc.’s reputation for excellent customer service. “You shouldn’t have to be afraid of your device,” Bezos said. In a demo, Bezos asked an on-screen customer service rep to recommend a hot app. The rep mentioned “Angry Birds: Star Wars II.” Bezos also received instructions on how to set time limits on various activities for children.

Diplomats fear for African republic NEW YORK (AP) — Diplomats from the U.S., the European Union and the United Nations sought Wednesday to pull the collapsing Central African Republic under the international spotlight, calling the security crisis in the poor, landlocked country “in one word, desperate.” The meeting on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly included U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power, who attendees said noted how the recent violence in Kenya was the result of years-long neglect of the crisis in neighboring Somalia. Central African Republic borders some of the most tumultuous countries on the continent, and some fear the state of near-anarchy will allow rebels and other

armed groups to flourish there. “Today, we have the choice of stopping the (Central African Republic) from turning into another Somalia,” said Kristalina Georgieva, the EU commissioner responsible for humanitarian aid. She called it a “forgotten crisis” and said the country is collapsing outside the capital, Bangui. The meeting followed a call from French President Francois Hollande on Tuesday for the U.N. Security Council to support a plan to authorize logistical and financial support for the African Union peacekeeping force in Central African Republic. The force is expected to eventually include up to 3,500 troops.

Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Fla. Now a sixth-grade teacher, Snyder — who maintains a deep love for underwater adventure — called her trip “The Path Not Taken.” The first two weeks were organized by CPI Spanish Immersion School, which has sites in three Costa Rican locations. The third week Snyder reserved for diving, something she hadn’t done for 16 years. For the first week, Snyder was joined by a college roommate during CPI’s Flamingo Beach class. Snyder and four other students met in the mornings; in the afternoons, there were activities such as zip lining and horseback riding. “We ate in a different restaurant every night,” Snyder said. Her favorite fare was ceviche — a fish appetizer marinated in lemon juice with cilantro and onions — and fresh pina coladas. “I met so many neat people,” said Snyder, who studied along with an international contingent at Flamingo Beach and then for a week in a mountain locale. “I definitely have more knowledge,” said Snyder. As part of her grant, she also purchased a one-year online version of Rosetta Stone’s

Spanish tutorial, so she plans to continue her work from home. During her week in the mountains, Snyder hiked and zip lined in cloud forests at Monteverde. One could zip line from mountain top to mountain top, with the longest run being a mile. She toured Arenal Volcano, which was active up until 2010, and the sprawling Arenal lake. She saw orchids, frogs and butterflies. Costa Rica, which is about the size of Ohio, has 5 percent of the world’s biodiversity. On her path not taken, Snyder had nurtured an interest in natural science and specifically marine biology. Snyder worked with sea turtles for four years while in college. During the final week of her trip, as she and friend Jennifer Doyle kicked back on the Caribbean coast, she had the opportunity to see turtles nesting at Tortuguero National Park. She spotted four green sea turtles in various stages of nesting. “You could see her tracks,” said Snyder. “That was the perfect end cap for my adventure.” She and Doyle also toured an organic chocolate farm and communed with reptiles and monkeys at a wildlife rehabilitation center. They hiked through gardens and

Michigan man guilty of B felony meth charge within 1,000 feet of a family housing complex on Washington Street. Lowe was returned to Steuben County Jail and will be sentenced by Judge Allen Wheat Lowe at a later date. Lowe has been in Steuben County Jail since his arrest April 8 along with four other people at an Angola home, where police seized drugs, paraphernalia and photocopied U.S. currency. Steuben County Sheriff’s Detective Chris Emerick testified Wednesday afternoon about the investigation and execution of a

warrant. Lowe was outside the residence when police arrived, though they linked him to a red Christmas cookie tin that contained his expired Michigan driver’s license, methamphetamine and miscellaneous items. He is engaged to another suspect in the case, Nikki L. Ludlow, 32, Battle Creek, Mich. Ludlow, appearing in jailhouse orange, told the jury the meth was hers and Lowe was innocent of drug possession. She has requested a speedy trial and is set to go before a jury Oct. 7 in Circuit Court. After the afternoon’s testimony and outside the presence of the jury, Lowe’s public defender Jim Burns asked that the charges be

to waterfalls — one which they could access only after traversing 403 rough-hewn rock steps. Doyle counted each one, said Snyder, laughing. They also got some spa time at an upscale resort they stayed in their final night in Costa Rica. While that week had been reserved for scuba diving, the ocean was “angry,” said Snyder and wicked rip tides didn’t allow coastal dives. During her trip, Snyder did have an opportunity to get under the water. She said it took her to a peaceful, calm world she’d embraced as a college student — a path she had not taken, but one she realized was not out of reach. “I felt at home,” said Snyder. “I want to keep doing that.” Though her goal with the grant had been to “explore that path not taken,” Snyder said, “I realize I don’t have to not go there … I have to make it a priority.” With an underwater camera, a course in underwater photography and renewed desire to embrace all the things she loves — including her husband, Brian, and children here in Steuben County — Snyder plans to joyfully dive into the coming years of her life.

Since Tuesday afternoon, Cruz — with occasional remarks by Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and other GOP conservatives — has controlled the Senate floor and railed against Obamacare.

All are 24 or younger, and all have been filling critical roles for a while now. “We know what’s at stake and what we need to do to get the job done, how many games we need to win,” Miller said. “Hopefully, we can just win them all. “It’s just been an amazing year, I’ve had so much fun and there’s still a lot of baseball left.” Miller (15-9) has been in the rotation all year and leads major league rookies in wins after allowing a run in six-plus innings.

Area’s golfing girls aim for state berth BY JAMES FISHER

KENDALLVILLE — The top girls prep golfers in the northeast corner of Indiana will gather at Noble Hawk Golf Links on Saturday. Teams from East Noble, West Noble and Angola are part of the 18-team regional, along with Fremont’s Alivia Behnfeldt, who qualified as an individual. East Noble enters the event following a sectional championship on Saturday at the Cobblestone Golf Course. The Knights had two of the top three individuals in the sectional, with Alyn Clark finishing second with an 82 and Logan Handshoe placing third with an 89. Other members of the sectional championship squad are Rebecca Alwine, Cooper Handshoe and Kacey VanWagner.

The Knights earned their sixth sectional title in seven seasons. East Noble won its last regional championship in 2010. West Noble’s Haley Teel shot a 94 during the sectional to help earn the Chargers a spot in the regional. Other members of the team are Paige Shearer, Rachel Stohlman, Molly Marsh and Bailey Kruger. West Noble placed third at Cobblestone to send the team to regionals. Angola earned a spot in the regional by placing third in last Saturday’s regional at the Zollner Golf Course. Mackenna Kelly paced the Hornets with a 91. Joining Kelly at Noble Hawk for Angola will be Alison Brimmer, Morgan Dornte, Kandi Bach and Lauren Stanley. This is the ninth straight season in coach Joan Sanborn’s tenure

that Angola will have at least one girl golfing in a regional tournament. Fremont’s Behnfeldt was third overall in the Angola Sectional with an 84 to earn her spot in the regional. Three Northeast Hoosier Conference teams will take part, with Homestead and Carroll joining East Noble. Homestead won last week’s sectional at Norwell, the sixth straight title for the Spartans. Carroll was second in the sectional at Cobblestone. Penn enters the regional as the defending champion and the top-ranked team in the Indiana High School Golf Coaches Association poll. Penn advanced to the regionals by claiming its sixth-consecutive sectional championship, topping the secondplace team by 63 strokes.

Kari Bellville shot a 76 to lead Penn to its sectional title. The senior was 10th in the state a year ago and trailed only East Noble’s Katie Sharp at last season’s regional event. Sharp has graduated. Penn took part in the East Noble Invitational at Noble Hawk earlier this season and dominated the event. Marion won its 19th sectional and fourth in a row and will also take part. The squad is ranked No. 12 in the state poll and finished 13th at the state finals last season. Saturday’s regional begins at 8:30 a.m. The top three finishing teams advance to the state finals on Oct. 4-5 at The Legends Golf Club in Franklin. The top three individuals not part of a team that advances also earn a spot in the state finals.

Knights win in overtime KENDALLVILLE — East Noble traveled to Bellmont Wednesday and won a very difficult Northeast Hoosier Conference match, 1-0, in overtime. The Knights worked hard throughout the first half trying to find a way to score against a physical and organized Bellmont team. Although there were multiple opportunities, they were unable to break through. The Bellmont keeper came up big on several occasions to keep the score knotted at 0-0. The Knights ended regulation with 18 shots, but no goals. In the overtime, the Knights continued to press to find the back of the net. The squad finally broke through on a corner kick served in from Mason Diffenderfer that found Matt Patton on the back post. Patton skied over his defender to put the ball in the goal with 2:30 minutes left in OT. The East Noble defense and midfield controlled the game keeping the ball in the attacking half for the majority of the game. Jesse Maley was solid in the back and

Rosenthal, who struck out Adam LaRoche to end a perfect ninth, was ready when closer Edward Mujica faltered. “It’s been a fun year, especially right now,” Rosenthal said. “Guys are getting to pitch in different situations than they had all year. Everybody’s stepping up.” Yadier Molina had the go-ahead hit and Matt Adams homered for the Cardinals, seeking their first division title since 2009.

NAPA Auto Parts announces end of sponsorship arrangement with Michael Waltrip Racing


The manipulation of the finishing order of the Sprint Cup circuit’s regular season finale at Richmond International Raceway by Michael Waltrip Racing has cost the team its sponsorship of the No. 56 Toyota driven by Martin Truex Jr. and has become a concern for many others in the sport. NAPA Auto Parts, in a statement on its Facebook page, said that “after thorough consideration, NAPA has made the difficult decision to end its sponsorship arrangement with Michael Waltrip Racing effective Dec. 31, 2013. NAPA believes in fair play and does not condone actions such as those that led to the penalties assessed by NASCAR. We remain supportive of the millions of NASCAR fans and will evaluate our future position in motorsports.” The manipulations to try to get Truex in the field for the Chase for the Sprint Cup led to Truex being removed 0DUWLQ7UXH[-U·V1$3$VSRQVRUHG1R7R\RWDOHDGVWKHÀHOGLQWKH6\OYDQLD from the Chase field, penalties for the three teams involved and the suspension of the team’s general manager, Auto Parts, but there are many more chapters yet to be writTy Norris. ten.

5\DQ%ODQH\FURVVHVWKHÀQLVKOLQH DW.HQWXFN\6SHHGZD\IRUKLVÀUVW 1DWLRQZLGH6HULHVYLFWRU\ Ryan Blaney, the 19-year-old son of Sprint Cup veteran Dave Blaney, continues to emerge as one of the future stars of NASCAR. On Saturday night in the Kentucky 300 at Kentucky Speedway, Blaney got his first Nationwide Series victory in just his 15th career start in the series and his second of the current season. Blaney got the win in Roger Penske’s No. 22 Ford, and just getting to drive that car was a sign of Blaney’s talent. The No. 22 has won 10 races this season with four different drivers, and the other three — A.J. Allmendinger, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano — are Sprint Cup veterans. Blaney, who is running full-time in the Camping World Truck Series, where he has two career wins including one this season, started second at Kentucky and led 96 laps, including the final 89. Austin Dillon finished second, ahead of Matt Crafton, series points leader Sam Hornish Jr. and Alex Bowman. “We had a great car all night,” Blaney told reporters in his winner’s interview. “We kept working on it throughout the race, just little tweaks here and there. We were really strong to start out the race and just got better and better as the runs went on.” Blaney said that one of his biggest challenges was figuring out what to do on restarts now that NASCAR has changed the rules and allowed the second-place driver to keep the lead if he or she gets past the leader before the start/finish line. “It was really tough the last few restarts to really know what was going to happen,” he said. “The way the restart rule is now, you never know how big of a push someone can get. I was a little worried being on the outside, but we had a great car to be able get through [Turns] One and Two good and be able to clear them by Three and Four.” Hornish continues to lead the points standings and has a 15-point edge over second-place Dillon, who told reporters he was proud of his team’s effort. “We knew we would be good coming here; it’s one of our better tracks and I’m just thankful we had a good run tonight,” he said. “It was a solid run. There was just one car better.” Dillon, who won two Nationwide races last year and has run nine Cup races this year in anticipation of a full-time Cup schedule next year, is still winless in Nationwide this season.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Indians handle White Sox CLEVELAND (AP) — Rookie Danny Salazar gave Cleveland a much-needed quality start and Nick Swisher hit a two-run homer as the Indians tightened their grip one of the AL wild-card spots with their 14th straight win over the Chicago White Sox, 7-2 on Wednesday night in their home finale. Salazar (2-3) struck out eight in 5 1-3 innings for the Indians, who won their final six home games to stay with the wild-card leaders. They entered the night with a one-game lead over Texas in the wild-card chase. Cleveland is also one game behind Tampa Bay for the top spot with just four games left. Swisher homered in the fifth inning off Dylan Axlerod (4-11) as the Indians finished the season 16-2 against Chicago. Cleveland hasn’t made the playoffs since 2007, but the Indians are closing in on a berth under first-year manager Terry Francona, who guided Boston to two World Series titles. A spray-painted bedsheet in the upper deck of Progressive Field said: “Playoff Bound.” The Indians, who already have 20 more wins than last season, have some work to do before that can happen. They haven’t won it all since 1948, but if they can win their next four games in Minnesota, the Indians will give themselves a chance to end the drought. Asivail Garcia homered for the White Sox, 6-19 since Aug. 30. Swisher’s two-run shot in the fifth gave the Indians a 4-1 lead and allowed 30,942 fans to breathe a little easier following the emotional rollercoaster of Tuesday night, when Jason Giambi’s pinch-hit, two-run homer in the ninth saved closer Chris Perez, who gave up two homers in the top of the inning.

Team USA keeps America’s Cup SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The big black cat almost used up its last life at the start, burying its bows in a wave and falling behind a boatload of Kiwis. Of course, it was only fitting in this America’s Cup that Oracle Team USA would need to survive near-defeat again. With one last spectacular push in a winner-take-all finale Wednesday, the United States managed to hang onto the Auld Mug in closing out the longest, fastest and, by far, wildest America’s Cup ever with one of the greatest comebacks in sports. “I’m going to rank it No. 1. We never gave up,” skipper Jimmy Spithill said. Spithill steered Oracle’s space-age, 72-foot catamaran to its eighth straight victory, speeding past Dean Barker and Team New Zealand sailing upwind in Race 19 on a San Francisco Bay course bordered by the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the Embarcadero. All but defeated a week ago, the 34-year-old Australian and his international crew twice rallied from seven-point deficits to win 9-8. Owned by software billionaire Larry Ellison, Oracle Team USA was docked two points for illegally modifying boats in warmup regattas and had to win 11 races to keep the trophy. For eight races, they sailed with no margin for error in a new class of boats that had a learning curve that was almost straight up. “There’s nothing like going all in,” Spithill said. “I’m so proud of the boys. … They didn’t flinch.” It could have been over shortly after the start Wednesday just inside the Golden Gate Bridge. Oracle’s hulking black catamaran — with a giant No. 17 on each hull — buried its twin bows in a wave approaching the first mark and Barker turned his red-and-black cat around the buoy with a 7-second lead. “We just knew it was going to be a tough race,” Spithill said. “I just have so much confidence in the boys on board and the boat. When you sail these boats, you’re on the edge. You really red-line them the whole way. They keep you on your toes. It’s a very demanding boat but it’s very rewarding at the same time.”

Buccaneers make QB change TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Less than five seasons are declaring Josh Freeman was the future of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the struggling franchise is tying its hopes to another rookie quarterback. Coach Greg Schiano benched Freeman in favor of untested Mike Glennon, two days after insisting the former first-round draft pick remained the starter because he gave the Bucs the best chance to win. On Wednesday, Schiano said several times Glennon now gives the Bucs the best chance to win. The coach said he changed his mind after meeting Tuesday with general manager Mark Dominik, and later discussing the situation with ownership — which signed off on the move. “This is a performance-based decision,” Schiano said after practice Wednesday. “We’re not getting the job done on the field.” The winless Bucs have lost their first three games, two on field goals in the closing seconds. Freeman has completed just 45.7 percent of his passes for 571 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. Dating to last season, they’ve dropped eight and nine games, and the offense hasn’t played well throughout the stretch. “There are a lot of reasons for it. It’s not just one guy,” Schiano said of Freeman, the franchise career completions leader who is in the final year of the contract he signed as a rookie. “But’s that’s a critical piece of it. … The quarterback touches the ball every play.”





Expecting woman wants husband on the wagon DEAR ABBY: I’m three months pregnant. Before I got pregnant, my husband and I enjoyed having wine with dinner or a margarita when we were out on the town. We didn’t drink to excess, but have enjoyed alcohol in moderation. Obviously, I can’t drink anymore, but my husband carries on like nothing has changed. I’m becoming resentful every time we go out to eat. I asked him once if he’d quit drinking until our baby arrives. He looked shocked and said, “Why? I’m not pregnant.” I guess I feel left out because he’s having fun. I want him to suffer with me, and this is really getting on my nerves. Any advice? — RESENTFUL IN TENNESSEE DEAR RESENTFUL: Yes. If you feel you are missing out on “fun” if you can’t drink, you have a potential alcohol problem. Tell your husband that when




LONELY IN ILLINOIS DEAR LONELY: I’m glad you wrote because it’s important that you not allow yourself to be isolated. Get out and participate in activities you enjoy that include like-minded people. While you may have been born disabled, I’m sure you have abilities and talents that would be welcomed if you choose to volunteer them. If you haven’t already, search the various online dating sites for both disabled and nondisabled individuals or contact a disability advocacy organization for guidance or to help you get access.

Growling stomach can be more than hunger swallowing tube) are above the abdomen. The digestive system is really a series of tubes. It moves food from the mouth to the stomach and small intestine, where it is digested. Then it moves the waste material (what’s left after digestion) down the ASK large intestine DOCTOR K. and out of the body. The Dr. Anthony movement of food, and Komaroff then of waste, occurs by the process called peristalsis. Peristalsis is an organized, sequential squeezing of the tubes of the digestive system. (It’s a bit like squeezing a tube of toothpaste.)

The stomach and intestines are filled with a mix of solid material, fluid and air. Often air and liquid are mixed up and rearranged by peristalsis. This causes the odd noises you sometimes hear. When a doctor puts a stethoscope on your abdomen, he or she can often hear the gurgling noises, even if they are not loud enough (at the moment) for you to hear. The gurgling noises are called borbyrygmi. Occasional stomach growling is entirely normal. In fact, if you have abdominal pain, doctors worry more when the gurgling is absent than when it is present. Hearing no bowel sounds in someone who has abdominal pain could be an indication of an inflamed pancreas, inflammation of the lining of the abdomen or a tear in the wall of the intestine. Also, most people who come out of major surgery have exceptionally quiet digestive tracts. That’s because normal movement of the

DEAR DOCTOR K: Why does my stomach sometimes make growling noises? DEAR READER: Maybe your stomach is trying to talk to my stomach. My stomach is periodically trying to talk to someone, that’s for sure. Stomach noises happen in everyone, although they seem to plague some people more than others. It happens all the time: I’m examining a patient, his or her stomach growls, and I say, “Time for lunch?” I assume it means the patient is hungry. That’s an ancient belief. For centuries, people have associated stomach growling with hunger. But do these noises always mean you’re hungry? And could these growling noises ever be a sign of illness? First, a little anatomy. The abdomen (the belly) is where the noise is coming from. The abdomen includes most of the digestive system: the stomach and intestines. The mouth, throat and esophagus (the

A considerate husband and fatherto-be should respect that you are doing the heavy lifting (literally) and help all he DEAR can. ABBY DEAR ABBY: I’m a 28-year-old who Jeanne Phillips man was born disabled. I have not had a date in years. I’d like to date and have a girlfriend, but when women look at me, all they see is my wheelchair. I’m a good person, well-mannered, respectful, caring and compassionate. Any advice you can offer would be appreciated. —

bowel wall temporarily stops after a major trauma such as surgery. On rare occasions, a growling stomach may indicate illness. Your stomach may growl louder, or sound high-pitched or even “tinkling,” if there is an infection. Growling sounds may also change if you have a partial or complete intestinal blockage or obstruction. What you’re hearing is your intestines trying to push fluid, gas and waste products past the trouble area. But if there’s obstruction, the patient is also typically bloated, has cramping pain and may be nauseated and vomiting. Finally, a noisy abdomen does not necessarily mean you are hungry. A much more reliable sign is actually feeling hungry. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is AskDoc
