Shipshewana’s Doris Davis poses with a few of her favorite Chicago Cubs treasures: a Cubs T-shirt, a Ryne Sandberg life-sized cutout and a baseball bat autographed by former Cubs catcher Jody Davis. Doris, who turned 98 this summer, has been a lifelong Cubs fan.

Shipshe woman, 98, keeps cheering for her team SHIPSHEWANA — Doris Davis is a big Cubs fan. Davis, 98, of Shipshewana, saw her first game in 1926 at age 11. While she doesn’t recall all of the details of that game, she does remember the experience. “I was sitting out in right field,” Davis said. “Oh, I was excited.” Turns out being a die-hard Cubs fan came naturally in the Davis household. “My dad was a Cubs fan, and we used to go up to Chicago every summer a couple times,” she said. “Load up the kids in the back seat and mother and dad in the front seat, and away we’d go.” Her mother, Ida, knew nothing about the Cubs when she first met and then later married Niles Davis, Doris’ father. Ida eventually became as big a Cubs fan as anyone in the family, spending part of her honeymoon in Chicago watching a Cubs game. Baseball was a summer centerpiece of the Davis household when Doris was growing up. She figured out how to use the family’s checkerboard to visually chart the games she’d listen to on the radio. “I had the checkerboard, and I had the gum labels — I had to

cut the edge off gum envelopes because we didn’t have Scotch tape at that time — to name all the players, and I had to move them around on the checkerboard,” she explained. “I had the checkerboard for the bases and the outfield. And I would just move them around as they got their singles or their home runs, or put them back in the dugout if they struck out.” A good student, Doris went on to earn a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University and work toward her master’s. She eventually settled into a teaching career, like her father, first teaching high school and eventually spending 25 years teaching at the University of Wisconsin at Stephens Point. She retired in 1977. It was after she retired that Doris kicked her love of the Cubs up another gear. She would take in at least 30 games each summer in Chicago, catching the South Shore into the city and then riding the El train to Wrigley Field. “I would go up so often that the

conductor on the train would know who I was and what I was doing,” Doris said. “Some of the people on the train would ask him how to get to Wrigley Field, and he (the conductor) would say, ‘Just go with this lady, she goes all the time.’ So I had a whole flock of them, that I was showing how to get to Wrigley Field.” Doris also began spending each spring of her retirement in Mesa, Ariz., taking in all the Cubs spring training games. She got to know the team so well that some friendships with players bloomed. Doris even baby-sat some of their children. “Jody Davis is my very favorite of all time. Everybody said I chose him because of his name, but it took me two days to find out who he was when I was at spring training. I liked the way he acted,” Davis said. Doris used to drive her own car to Arizona each spring. A few years ago, her family, worried about her making that long drive from Indiana to Arizona alone, finally convinced her to fly to Arizona instead. “The last two years I stayed home from spring training because you can see them on TV,” Doris said. “It’s simpler.”

Doubts linger BEIRUT (AP) — The U.S. government insists it has the intelligence to prove it, but the public has yet to see a single piece of concrete evidence produced by U.S. intelligence — no satellite imagery, no transcripts of Syrian military communications — connecting the government of President Bashar Assad to the alleged chemical weapons attack last month that killed hundreds of people. In its absence, Damascus and its ally Russia have aggressively pushed another scenario: that rebels carried out the Aug. 21 chemical attack. Neither has produced evidence for that case, either. That’s left more questions than answers as the U.S. threatens a possible military strike. The early morning assault in a rebel-held Damascus suburb known as Ghouta was said to be the deadliest chemical weapons attack in Syria’s 2½-year civil war. Survivors’ accounts, photographs of many of the dead wrapped peacefully in white sheets and dozens of videos showing victims in spasms and gasping for breath shocked the world and moved President Barack Obama to call for action because the use of chemical weapons crossed the red line he had drawn a year earlier. Yet one week after Secretary of State John Kerry outlined the case against Assad, Americans — at least those without access to classified reports — haven’t seen a shred of his proof. There is open-source evidence that provides clues about the attack, including videos of fragments from the rockets that analysts believe were likely used. U.S. officials on Saturday released a compilation of videos showing victims, including children, exhibiting what appear to be symptoms of nerve gas poisoning. Some experts think the size of the strike, and the amount of toxic chemicals that appear to have been delivered, make it doubtful that the rebels could have carried it out. What’s missing from the public record is direct proof, rather than

More parents opting children out of standardized tests DELAWARE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — While his eighth-grade classmates took state standardized tests this spring, Tucker Richardson woke up late and played basketball in his Delaware Township driveway. Tucker’s parents, Wendy and Will, are part of a small but growing number of parents nationwide who are ensuring their children do not participate in standardized testing. They are opposed to the practice for myriad reasons, including the stress they believe it brings on young students, discomfort with tests being used to gauge teacher performance, fear that corporate influence is overriding education and concern that test prep is narrowing curricula down to the minimum needed to pass an exam. “I’m just opposed to the way high-stakes testing is being used to evaluate teachers, the way it’s being used to define what’s happening in classrooms,” said Will Richardson, an educational consultant and former teacher. “These tests are not meant to evaluate teachers. They’re meant to find out what kids know.” The opt-out movement, as it is called, is small but growing. It has been brewing for several years via word of mouth and social media, especially through Facebook. The “Long Island opt-out info” Facebook page has more than 9,200 members, many of them rallying at a Port Jefferson Station, N.Y., high school last month after a group of principals called this year’s state tests — and their low scores — a “debacle.”

Prairie Heights High School students check out some borrowed items showing the school’s 50-year anniversary, including letter jackets from the now defunct Orland, Salem and Stroh schools. The three schools were part of those that consolidated to form Prairie Heights. The students include, from left, Quinn Davis, junior; Thomas Willett, senior and Brandy Low, sophomore.

BRUSHY PRAIRIE — The Prairie Heights School Corp. is looking for historical items telling the story of its storied 50 years in education as a community center. This year marks the corporation’s 50th anniversary and Prairie Heights Superintendent Alan Middleton said the public’s help is sought in sharing historical items. “It’s a celebration of 50 years. We want to show kids the history from 1963-65,” he said. Over the years, the corporation was formed with the consolidation of country schools in Orland, Flint, Salem and Mongo in 1963. While those four schools are gone, Middleton said the look back through history causes a reflection on what was and how it came to be. During that time, Middleton said the corporation has long been characterized by being close knit with an emphasis on agriculture. “Agriculture has always been our strong point. We have the largest school farm east of the Mississippi” River, he said. “There’s been excellent leadership and an opportunity for kids. Agriculture was the vocation.” In addition, he noted the growth of the

award-winning Prairie Heights High School theatre department. Middleton said the anniversary has nothing to do with his retirement in heading the corporation, which will come at the end of the current academic year. Neither are related. “We need to step back. Our goal is to put up pictures. If there’s any pictures of construction — that’d be great,” he said. Middleton said the gathering of the corporation’s history is rather interesting, as he and his staff don’t know what will be brought in. “We had someone come in the other day with a Salem letter jacket,” he said. “We got a yearbook.” Those who would like to lend any mementos of Prairie Heights’ history for the anniversary are asked to call Middleton at 351-3214. Items may also be brought to the administration office, 305 S. C.R. 1150E, for loan. Middleton said copies of photos from originals can be made at the office. Plans are being finalized to further celebrate the corporation’s history. Once those are finalized, the details will be announced. “There will be a night we’ll use to spearhead it,” Middleton said. “The goal is to get artifacts on display.”

Agony of defeat at the Cardboard Boat Regatta There were some light moments at the Steuben County United Way Cardboard Boat Regatta on Lake James on Saturday. Several boats did not make it. The boats, after all, were made of cardboard. Above, the Forever Improving Steuben County Together II team surveys the damage of the Viking ship that didn’t make it too far out of dock. At right, Carla Glasford, in the Charlie’s Spider Fighters boat, raises her hands after capsizing in the second chance heat. Below, Larry and Brice Bassett’s Swamp Monster boat catches fire after some of the special effects — smoke bombs — decided to have an intended effect, which was to reignite and catch the boat on fire. The regatta is the kickoff for Steuben County United Way’s annual campaign.

Daniels defends pardon Action erased felony conviction for family friend INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Former Gov. Mitch Daniels is defending his decision to grant a pardon to the nephew of a high school friend convicted on drug charges in 1997. Daniels pardoned Anthony Nefouse in December, a month before leaving office and taking over as Purdue University’s president. It was one of 62 pardons he granted during his eight years as governor. The Nefouse case, however, raised some unusual circumstances. Nefouse was the nephew of a Daniels high school classmate; his uncle had contributed $13,000 to Daniels’ campaigns. And a former Daniels administration cabinet member submitted the petition and testified at the pardon hearing. Nefouse, now 37, pleaded guilty in 1997 to conspiracy

to deal in cocaine, a Class B felony, and received a 12-year suspended sentence with six years of probation. He has never committed another crime and has worked at his father’s Indianapolis health insurance company. He and his wife have two sons. But the felony conviction meant he couldn’t volunteer and participate in some of his sons’ activities. It also prevented him from being certified as a financial planner or obtaining a real estate license. “Just because you’re a stupid kid it doesn’t mean it has to haunt you the rest of your life,” Nefouse told a Rort Wayne newspaper, He prepared his petition for a pardon and got a hearing in early 2012. The parole board voted 3-0 to recommend Daniels grant the pardon.

Daniels said he recognized Nefouse’s name. He graduated from North Central High School in Indianapolis in 1967 with Anthony’s uncle. The former governor later met Anthony’s father, Lonnie, who contributed $3,000 personally and $10,000 from his company to Daniels’ campaigns between 2003 and 2008. Anthony gave Daniels $300 in his first race for governor. Daniels said he wasn’t aware of the contributions but noted that knowing Anthony Nefouse’s uncle made his decision more difficult. “It worked against him that I knew someone in his family. Honestly if he was someone I never heard of it would have been straightforward,” Daniels said. “I deliberated a long, long time and finally decided it was the right thing to do.”

The box elder tree is a maple. Box elder is a common or local name, a colloquial name. The book name, the name prescribed by botanists for box elder, is ash-leaf maple. Or ashleaf maple or ash-leaved maple, it depends on which book you look in. Maples are shade trees. Tall with broadly spreading limbs, they provide a dense canopy of leaves in summer and are common lawn trees. We have several maples in our lawn. Many home owners of the eastern half of the U.S. do. We have three species of maple in our yard, sugar, silver and one red. We didn’t plant them. They were here, they were all mature trees when we bought the property and moved here. Somebody planted them. I’m certain they were not trees of the forest that covered this area when the first American settlers arrived. The maples in our yard were probably planted by the people who had our house built 80 or 90, perhaps a hundred years ago, all but the red maple, which is smaller and appears to be younger. All the sugar and silver maples, particularly the silver, have dead limbs and branches. I pick dead branches up under the silver maples after every strong wind. The maples in our yard are typical. That is, the leaves are simple, one blade for every stem or petiole with a bud by the point where the stem joins the branch. The blades are cut, indented, divided into lobes. The leaves of the silver maples are toothed, cut with smaller indentations around the edge. The leaves of the ashleaf maple, or box elder as I knew it until I had a college botany class, are different. They’re compound. That is, they have several leaflets on each petiole, like an ash or the walnut. There were three box elder trees along our side of the driveway between our house and the neighbor’s on one side when I was a boy. Two things I remember about those trees. In late summer and early fall they were alive with box elder bugs and, though I was only 5 years old, I remember how we lost those trees, all three of them, in a matter of minutes. Box elder bugs are about the size, a little bigger, then honey bees. They’re somewhat broad and flat and black with red marks on the back. Leaving the trees, many of them speckled the wall of our house nearest the trees. Some of them got in the house every time we opened a door, it seemed. They didn’t bite or sting. They were just unwanted nuisances, which my brother and I hunted down in the house and got rid of. As for the loss of those box elders, they were uprooted and laid out along the edge of the driveway by a tornado that ripped through town one summer afternoon. The tornado uprooted all the trees in our yard, not just the box elders. It shattered the windows, damaged furniture, lifted the garage off our car and laid a tree across the top of the car, bending the roof down until the middle of it, and the tree, was on the back of the front seat. The box elder tree is named for the bugs that are associated with it. I don’t know what the bugs are named for. The names ashleaf and ash-leaved are obviously for the shape of the leaves. Sugar maple is the source of the sap that gives us maple syrup. Silver maple has whitish or silvery under sides of the leaves. Red maples are red-leaved standouts in the fall. Striped maple has whitish streaks in the bark. Striped maple is also called moosewood, I presume because it is browsed by moose. Certainly it isn’t because moose live in or on it, like box elder bugs live on box elder trees.

Briefs • SWAT team kills 107-year-old man in Arkansas PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) — A 107-year-old man was killed after SWAT officers shot back at him during a standoff at a home, police in the southeastern Arkansas city of Pine Bluff said Sunday. Police were called to the home Saturday afternoon about a disturbance and say officers arrived to find Monroe Isadore had threatened two people by pointing a weapon at them. Officers had the pair leave the home for their own safety and approached a bedroom looking for Isadore. When the officers announced who they were, Isadore shot through the door at them but missed hitting them, said Pine Bluff Lt. David Price in a news release. The officers retreated to a safer area, and supervisors and additional help were called, Price said. Supervisors started negotiating with Isadore and continued after SWAT officers arrived at the home about 45 miles southeast of Little Rock. The SWAT team inserted a camera into the room and confirmed Isadore was armed with a handgun, Price said. When it was clear the negotiations weren’t working, SWAT officers released gas into the room from outside a bedroom window, Price said. He said Isadore began to fire at the officers and they fired back, killing him.

Carnival swing ride mishap injures 13 riders NORWALK, Conn. (AP) — Authorities say a swing ride at a festival in Connecticut lost power and sent children falling to the ground, injuring 13 of them, but none of the injuries appears life-threatening. Norwalk Police Chief Thomas Kulhawik says there were initial reports of serious injuries but preliminary indications are that the injuries were not severe. Police say most of the children suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene after a ride that sends swings into the air lost power at the Oyster Festival in Norwalk on Sunday. Kulhawik estimated that some children fell between 10 and 15 feet to the ground while some hit other riders and some hit the ride itself. One child was bleeding from a head injury.

Hollywood • ‘Riddick’ replaces ‘Butler’ as new king of the box office LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Riddick” is seeing light at the box office. The sci-fi thriller starring Vin Diesel as an intergalactic criminal with built-in night vision debuted in first place with $18.7 million, according to studio Diesel estimates Sunday. “Riddick” is the third installment in the series, following the $11.6 million debut of 2000’s “Pitch Black” and the $24.3 million launch of 2004’s “The Chronicles of Riddick.” “Riddick” also fared well internationally, bringing in an additional $7.4 million in 22 markets such as the United Kingdom and Hong Kong. “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” fell to second place with $8.9 million in its fourth weekend at the box office, bringing its total domestic haul to $91.9 million. The Spanish-language comedy “Instructions Not Included” earned third place in its expanded second weekend with $8.1 million, giving it a total of $20.1 million in U.S.

Issues test Obama’s power of persuasion WASHINGTON (AP) — The tasks stacking up before President Barack Obama over the coming weeks will test his persuasion powers and his mobilizing skills more than any other time in his presidency. How well Obama handles the challenges in the concentrated amount of time before him could determine whether he leads the nation from a position of strength or whether he becomes a lame duck one year into his second term. Between now and the end of October, Obama must convince wary lawmakers that they should grant him authority to take military action against Syria; take on

Congress in an economy-rattling debate over spending and the nation’s borrowing limit; and oversee a crucial step in the putting in place his prized health care law. The Syria vote looms as his first, biggest and perhaps most defining challenge. His mission is persuading Congress — and bringing the public along — to approve armed action against the Syrian government in response to a chemical attack that Obama blames on President Bashar Assad’s government. “It’s conceivable that, at the end of the day, I don’t persuade a majority of the American people that it’s the right thing to do,” Obama

acknowledged in a news conference Friday. His chief of staff, Denis McDonough, was asked on “Fox News Sunday” whether a congressional rejection might endanger Obama’s presidency, and he responded: “Politics is somebody else’s concern. The president is not interested in the politics of this.” Presidents tend to have an advantage on issues of national security, a tradition demonstrated by the support Obama has won for action in Syria from the bipartisan leadership of the House. But that has not translated so far into firm support among the rank and file.

“Congress can look presidents in the eye on a level gaze regarding the budget,” the presidential historian H.W. Brands said. “But on war and peace they have to look up to the president, he’s the commander in chief. “If he does lose, even if the loss comes about partly as a result from negative Democratic votes, the Republicans are going to get the bit in their teeth and say ‘We’re not going to give this guy anything,’” said Brands, a professor at the University of Texas at Austin, said. By that reasoning, success on Syria could give Obama some momentum. “If he gets the authority

it shows that he’s not a lame duck, that he still has some power,” said John Feehery, a Republican strategist and former House GOP leadership aide. “If he doesn’t get the authority, it’s devastating. People see him as the lamest of lame ducks.” The Syria vote, however, is unusual and probably will not break along traditional partisan or ideological lines. Democrats and Republicans have voiced support and opposition to a military intervention. As a result, some White House officials believe their ability to influence issues that split along party lines is limited.

Alexandria, Va., firefighter Capt. Scott Quintana has chronic Myeloid leukemia that was diagnosed in 2010. Quintana was a first responder to the Pentagon on 9/11 and doesn’t know if the illness is related to his work at the Pentagon, but has applied to the 9/11/ victim compensation fund.

about it,” Quintana said, adding that his $8,000per-month chemotherapy bill is already covered by insurance, thanks to a Virginia law that presumes that any firefighter diagnosed with cancer got it from an on-the-job exposure. No such presumption exists for people applying to the victim compensation fund. The fund’s special master, Shelia Birnbaum, said claims coming in from Pentagon and Shanksville responders have yet to be reviewed, so she couldn’t say how many might be granted. “It has to be an injury that is related to your exposure at that site,” she said. That means that applicants, to start with, will need to have a doctor fill out a form verifying that their illness was caused, or worsened, by a harmful exposure during the 9/11 rescue and recovery. Initially, compensation was only available for a limited list of health conditions linked to the unique blend of toxins and caustic agents in the trade center dust, most notably respiratory illnesses.

to apply for free health monitoring and treatment. So far, just 19 have applied. The trickle of people signing up for compensation includes Alexandria Fire Department Capt. Scott Quintana, who dug through feet of scorched rubble at the Pentagon to find bodies in 2001. He was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia, a type of cancer, in 2010. Research has suggested that the genetic mutation that causes his type of cancer might be triggered by some environmental toxins. But even Quintana acknowledged it’s unlikely his leukemia was caused solely by the few days he spent at the Pentagon. “It’s part of a long exposure to triggers that create this in your body,” Quintana said. “Could I absolutely tie it to 9/11? Absolutely not. Can I tie it to my career in the fire service? Yes.” What that means for his compensation claim isn’t entirely clear. “If they are making an award, I’ll take it. If they don’t, I’m not going to cry

Small radio making waves in Indiana BLOOMINGTON (AP) — Small Indianabased radio broadcasters are surviving, and in some cases thriving, despite tough times for radio and years of consolidation that put stations in larger cities into hands of national heavyweights. Advertisers may be fleeing to mobile and other digital advertising channels. And youngsters these days listen to satellite radio or download music from iTunes. But niche formats, supplemental revenue from leasing tower space, and an intensely local focus are keeping many of these operators profitable. So if you want to know what’s going on in Martinsville, there’s the local newspaper — or David Keister’s 6,000-watt country crooner, WCBK-FM 102.3. “If somebody breaks a toenail, I want to have it on the air,” said Keister, founder of Mid America Radio Group, which owns and operates eight stations in Indiana, including WHZR-FM 103.7 in Logansport. Keister rambled into Indiana in the mid-1960s from Michigan, hauling his furniture — and a transmitter — in the back of a cattle truck. He’d

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Inmates at a western Indiana prison are trained to give end-of-life care for their cellmates through a hospice program as a way to help deal with an aging prison population. The program at the Wabash Valley Correctional Institute in Carlisle, 35 miles south of Terre Haute, was the idea of a prisoner who had watched his friend die of lung cancer in 2009 without a single outside visitor. Inmate volunteers have cared for 50 convicts in their final days over the past three years, The Indianapolis Star reports. “They forge some pretty close relationships with their patients,” Marla Gadberry, health services coordinator at Wabash Valley. “And when the patient passes on, there can be a quite a bit of grief.” Volunteers receive 40 hours when they sign up for the program and an hour a month of on-the-job training. An aging inmate population is a nationwide

problem. A 2012 American Civil Liberties Union report estimates about 246,000 of the nation’s 3 million inmates are age 50 or older. In Indiana, 13.5 percent of state and federal inmates are older than 50, according to the report. “The population behind bars mirrors that in society, so our aging population is growing,” Pat Nolan, a spokesman for Corizon, a Tennessee-based company that has a $100 million a year contract with Indiana Department of Correction to runs its health services, said in a prepared statement. “We focus on the overall health needs of each patient, whatever their age, while they are in our care.” He said Corizon does not keep track of the difference in costs among different age groups in Indiana’s prisons. The ACLU study and another by the National Institute of Corrections says it costs between two and three times as much to care for a prisoner over age 50 than it does other prisoners.

eventually own 19 stations in Indiana before selling a bunch in 2009. Guys like Keister learned that, in small towns, people still want to know who’s been arrested, what happened at last night’s school board meeting, and who’s leading a NASCAR race, said James “Jed” Duvall, a veteran of Indiana radio who worked at stations including WIBC in Indianapolis and now is a radio consultant. “You have to do the kind of things that the large-market stations won’t do anymore,” Duvall told the Indianapolis Business Journal. “The focus has to be on a lot of the touchyfeely stuff that involves the people within your town.” Some of Mid America’s stations — such as WCBK — are well within the signal umbrella of Indianapolis stations largely owned by national radio chains such as Cumulus and Clear Channel, as well as Indianapolis-based Emmis Communications Corp. The biggest player, Clear Channel, owns 850 radio stations, including WFBQ-FM 94.7. The national operators can hire the top talent, pull bigger audiences, and thus command higher advertising rates.

A mother takes children to museum BY JANE M. CHOATE

“Don’t worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.” — Robert Fulghum No one teaches us the art of parenting. Why aren’t classes required? Why aren’t we required to pass some kind of test to get a license to be parents? Certainly I wasn’t prepared for this most important of all jobs. After four children, though, I felt like I had a handle on it. Or I did, until our 9-yearold son Robbie needed to complete a cultural arts requirement to earn an arrow point for Cub Scouts. To appreciate the enormity of this, one needs to understand our family. We are not cultural arts people. My husband and three older children breathe sports. Football. Baseball. Soccer. Planning a cultural arts excursion for my crew took creativity and a large

dose of courage. After I presented Robbie with several possibilities, he decided to visit the local museum. I loaded our four children in the car, placing the 1-year-old in his car seat and strapping the other children in seatbelts. “Remember,” I told Robbie, “in order for me to sign off on this, you need to look at every exhibit. No slacking.” “Do we all have to go?” our daughter whined. “Yes,” I answered in my best mother-of-the-year

In Loving Memory

of Paul Howe

Forever young. Forever loved. If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I would walk right up to heaven and bring you back again. No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye. You were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why. Our hearts still ache with sadness, and secret tears still flow. What it meant to lose you no one will ever know. But now we know you want us to mourn for you no more, to remember all the happy times; that life still has much in store. You will never be forgotten, we pledge to you today. A hallowed place within our hearts is where you’ll always stay, and we all still love and miss you everyday.

I paid the entrance fees and walked in with four children in tow. My heart dropped to my stomach, which was already doing an uneasy roll, as I gazed around the room. I had neglected to find out what the museum was currently displaying: nudes. Of all kinds. In every shape and size. Oil nudes. Watercolor nudes. Clay nudes. Porcelain nudes. Bronze nudes. One painting of a woman, with an improbable third breast placed in the center of the belly, caught Robbie’s attention. “Mom, is that her belly button?” Robbie whispered. I could only shake my head helplessly. True to my edict, we gazed at every exhibit.

An hour and 45 minutes later, we trooped back to the car, where we repeated the process of car seat and seatbelts. At home, I put the baby down for a nap, gave everyone a snack, and turned to Robbie. “Bring me your Cub Scout book and I’ll sign off on the requirement.” Later that night, I recounted the adventure to my husband. “Nudes,” I said. “Hundreds of nudes. Fat nudes. Skinny nudes. And we looked at all of them. Every single one.” “You’re a good mother,” he said. Wisely, he turned what sounded like laughter into a cough, but I caught the twinkle in his eyes. I threw a pillow at him but decided he was right. I was a good mother. Parenting. Definitely an art, not a science.

TESTS: Few to no consequences for opting out FROM PAGE A1

In Washington, D.C., a group of parents and students protested outside the Department of Education. Students and teachers at a Seattle high school boycotted a standardized test, leading the district superintendent to declare that city high schools have the choice to deem it optional. In Oregon, students organized a campaign persuading their peers to opt out of tests, and a group of students in Providence, R.I., dressed like zombies and marched in front of the State House to protest a requirement that students must achieve a minimum score on a state test in order to graduate.

“I’m opposed to these tests because they narrow what education is supposed to be about and they lower kids’ horizons,” said Jesse Hagopian, a teacher at the Seattle school. “I think collaboration, imagination, critical thinking skills are all left off these tests and can’t be assessed by circling in A, B, C or D.” For many parents and students, there have been few to no consequences to opting out of testing. Most parents are choosing to take their younger children out of testing, not older students for whom it is a graduation requirement. It’s unclear if things will change when the Common Core Curriculum

and the standardized tests that will accompany it are implemented in the 2014-15 school year. Some states were granted waivers for No Child Left Behind, which requires districts to have at least 95 percent of students participate in standardized testing or be at risk of losing funding. Kristen Jaudon, a spokeswoman for the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, said the test Seattle deemed optional is not required by the state. Ninety-five percent of students in a given school must take standardized tests that are required by state law.

SYRIA: U.S. says evidence it has is classified FROM PAGE A1

circumstantial evidence, tying this to the regime. The Obama administration, searching for support from a divided Congress and skeptical world leaders, says its own assessment is based mainly on satellite and signals intelligence, including intercepted communications and satellite images indicating that in the three days prior to the attack that the regime was preparing to use poisonous gas. But multiple requests to view that satellite imagery have been denied, though the administration produced copious amounts of satellite imagery earlier in the war to show the results of the Syrian regime’s military onslaught. When asked Friday whether such imagery would be made available showing the Aug. 21 incident, a spokesman referred The Associated Press to a map produced by

the White House last week that shows what officials say are the unconfirmed areas that were attacked. The Obama administration maintains it intercepted communications from a senior Syrian official on the use of chemical weapons, but requests to see that transcript have been denied. So has a request by the AP to see a transcript of communications allegedly ordering Syrian military personnel to prepare for a chemical weapons attack by readying gas masks. The U.S. administration says its evidence is classified and is only sharing details in closed-door briefings with members of Congress and key allies. Yet the assessment, also based on accounts by Syrian activists and hundreds of YouTube videos of the attack’s aftermath, has confounded many experts

who cannot fathom what might have motivated Assad to unleash weapons of mass destruction on his own people — especially while U.N. experts were nearby and at a time when his troops had the upper hand on the ground. Rebels who accuse Assad of the attack have suggested he had learned of fighters’ plans to advance on Damascus, his seat of power, and ordered the gassing to prevent that. “We can’t get our heads around this — why would any commander agree to rocketing a suburb of Damascus with chemical weapons for only a very short-term tactical gain for what is a long-term disaster,” said Charles Heyman, a former British military officer who edits The Armed Forces of the U.K., an authoritative bi-annual review of British forces.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck followed a familiar script Sunday. He started fast, played efficiently and delivered the late-game victory. Just like he did as a rookie. The only difference this time was that he won this game with his feet. After throwing for 178 yards and two touchdowns, Indy’s second-year quarterback took off and scored on a 19-yard TD run with 5:20 to play to beat Oakland 21-17. “I went through my reads. As you’re sort of stepping up you sort of realize, ‘Hey man, there’s no one here,’” Luck said after Indy won its first opening-day game since 2009. “That decision is like ‘OK, I can make the first down.’ Then you start running and it’s ‘OK, let’s go for the end zone.’” He made it work, of course, as he always seems to do. But Luck and the Colts tried to change the formula during the offseason. Indy brought in two new offensive linemen to protect Luck better and create running lanes, and it overhauled the defense to try and keep Luck and the offense on the field. They got mixed results Sunday. While the Colts ran 26 times

Briefs • RG3 set for return WASHINGTON (AP) — On Monday night, Robert Griffin III will perform his usual pregame rituals. He’ll listen to the Michael Jackson song “Thriller.” He’ll take a stroll on the turf, from end zone to end zone. “I am not very superstitious,” Griffin said. “But I do walk around the field one time before every game to kind of mark my territory, saying, ‘Within these lines, you control what happens.’” The last time he played, much of that control slipped away. He reinjured his right knee twice and became a diminished version of his record-breaking self. He stayed in the game until the knee gave out for good in the Washington Redskins’ home playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks in early January. It was the end of the season, but the story of the knee was just beginning. Shouldn’t coach Mike Shanahan have removed Griffin from the game earlier? Shouldn’t Dr. James Andrews, standing on the sideline working for the Redskins, have intervened? Or shouldn’t Griffin have swallowed his competitive pride and taken himself out? A few days later, Andrews reconstructed two ligaments in Griffin’s right knee. Eight months later to the day, Griffin will start in prime time in Week 1 of the regular season against the Philadelphia Eagles. He made his rehab into a very public mission, returning quicker than standard medical science would suggest, and audaciously calling out his coach more than once over mistakes made in the Seattle game, as well as the practice schedule at training camp.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler (6) rushes for yardage against the Cincinnati Bengals

during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday in Chicago.

Cutler keys Chicago victory CHICAGO (AP) — Sluggish for most of the afternoon, the Chicago Bears found their rhythm in time to make Marc Trestman a winner in his debut. Jay Cutler passed to Brandon Marshall for the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter, helping the Bears rally for a 24-21 victory over the sloppy Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday and giving Trestman a victory in his first game as an NFL head coach. It wasn’t quite the display the Bears were looking for after making some big changes in the offseason. But they made the most of a handful of big plays by Cutler and repeated mistakes by the

Bengals. “There were a lot of question marks,” Cutler said. “How were we going to do on offense? Are the plays going to work? Are we going to be able to block them? Am I going to complete balls? So to go out there, it wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t perfect, we didn’t think it was going to be. We made plays when we had to make plays.” Cutler threw for 242 yards behind a line with four new starters. Marshall had eight grabs for 104 yards, and the offense pulled it out after struggling most of the way. The Bengals led by 11 in the third quarter and were up 21-17 early in the fourth when Tim

Jennings jarred the ball from Mohamed Sanu following a reception and made the recovery. Chicago took over at its 19 and got an 8-yard run from Matt Forte on fourth-and-inches at the Bengals 27 to keep the drive going. Cutler then found Marshall in the front corner of the end zone for a 19-yard touchdown with 7:58 remaining. The Bears made big changes in the offseason, parting with star linebacker Brian Urlacher and hiring Trestman to replace the fired Lovie Smith with the idea that he could spark the offense and lead them to the playoffs after missing out five of the past six years.

NASCAR probes spin CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — NASCAR is reviewing evidence to determine if Michael Waltrip Racing deliberately attempted to manipulate the outcome of the race that set the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field. NASCAR President Mike Helton told The Associated Press before Sunday’s Truck Series race at Iowa that officials in the scoring tower did not immediately see anything to believe Clint Bowyer’s spin with seven laps remaining at Richmond was suspicious. It brought out a caution with Ryan Newman leading Saturday night and poised to claim the final berth in the 12-driver Chase field. Instead, it set in motion a chain of events that led to Bowyer teammate Martin Truex Jr. earning the final berth and Newman losing both the race and a spot in the Chase. SEE SPIN, PAGE B2

Serena reigns at Open NEW YORK (AP) — Fussing with her skirt and flubbing her shots, Serena Williams was troubled in the U.S. Open final by the swirling air and the strong play of Victoria Azarenka. After one miss, Williams declared, “I can’t play in this wind.” After blowing a big second-set lead, Williams chucked her racket toward the sideline, and it bounced back onto the court. In the end, Williams pulled herself together, as she usually does when it matters the most. Facing her first test of the past two weeks, the No. 1-seeded Williams overcame No. 2 Azarenka 7-5, 6-7 (6), 6-1 on Sunday for a fifth championship

at Flushing Meadows and second in a row. Williams, who turns 32 in 2½ weeks, raised her Grand Slam singles title count to 17, the sixth-most in history and one shy of Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert. Williams collected a $3.6 million prize, including a $1 million bonus for producing the best results during the North American summer hard-court circuit leading up to the U.S. Open. Helped by nine aces, one at 126 mph, Williams improved to 67-4 with a career-best nine titles in 2013. Since a first-round exit at the 2012 French Open, Williams is 98-5 with 14 titles, winning four of the past six Grand Slam tournaments.

White Sox end 9-game skid BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

PHOTOS BY KEN FILLMORE

Fun along the muddy trail in Pleasant Lake Top photo, members of the team from the Huntertown United Methodist Church embark upon the downhill slide into the mud pit near the finish of a race during the Junior Achievement Muddy Trail Run Saturday morning at the Boy Scout Camp in Pleasant Lake. Bottom photo, Stephanie Rasler of Lagrange emerges from under the ropes in the mud pit near the finish. The top individual finisher was Angola High School freshman Sam Bradley in

20 minutes, 9 seconds. The first-place two-person team was John Ferguson and Kevin Erb of Ferguson Advertising in Fort Wayne at 24:47. The top finishing third-person team in 26:38 was sponsored by Star Insurance of Poneto and included Nicholas Quinn, Andrew Runkle and Jesse Bergman. The first four-person team to finish included Hunter Minch, Braxton Dunn, Gavin Gilpin and Brock Seavers. They reached the line together at 24:32.

The Chicago White Sox were desperately clinging to a ninth-inning lead, hoping for a victory that would put a positive finish on a miserable road trip. Then, something astonishing happened: Thanks to a fine bit of acting by shortstop Alexei Ramirez, the White Sox actually got a lucky break. Pinch-runner Chris Dickerson got lost on the bases and was doubled up for the final out, and Chicago ended a nine-game losing streak by holding off the Baltimore Orioles 4-2 Sunday. Down 4-1, Baltimore loaded the bases with no outs in the ninth against Addison Reed. After Ryan Flaherty grounded into a forceout at second base that scored a run, Dickerson ran for him. Dickerson tried to steal second on a pitch to Brian Roberts, who hit a foul pop near first base. Dickerson didn’t know where the ball went, and Ramirez made it appear that the ball was in play as Dickerson slid into second. The baserunning blunder made him an easy out at first. “I didn’t peek and it ended up in the one place where you’re not going to get that awareness reaction from the infielders,” Dickerson said. “Especially Ramirez with the deke. That pretty much got me. I assumed there was a groundball hit behind me and he was going to first because I was already there.” During a lost season in which the White Sox have had little go their way, this

MLB • one couldn’t have ended better. “I am more glad than surprised,” said Reed, who earned his 37th save. “I don’t think he knew where it was. Thankfully, he didn’t.” Rookie Andre Rienzo pitched three-hit ball into the seventh inning and Adam Dunn homered for the White Sox. ROYALS 5, TIGERS 2 Doug Fister retired the first two batters easily enough in the fifth inning. Getting that third out proved to be more elusive for Fister and the Detroit Tigers. Eric Hosmer hit a three-run and the Kansas City Royals rallied to defeat the AL Central leaders 5-2 Sunday. Alex Gordon had an infield single and Emilio Bonifacio singled before Hosmer hit his 16th home run, connecting on a 2-2 pitch from Fister. “We’ve been doing that way too much, giving up hits with two strikes,” Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. “It’s not just the last two days. We’ve been doing that for a while and we’ve got to stop it,” he said. Fister acknowledged the home run pitch to Hosmer was not where he wanted it. “I threw it right where he wants it,” Fister said. “I was trying to get him to roll over and left it in the middle. We were trying to use the big ballpark and I left it over too much.” Bruce Chen picked up

Kansas City’s beleaguered starters with seven solid innings, allowing two runs and five hits. “Chen pitched how he always pitches,” said Alex Avila, who got one of the hits off him. “You can look back at any game he’s pitched and it’s always the same.” BREWERS 3, CUBS 1 Yovani Gallardo and the Milwaukee Brewers haven’t had the year that either had hoped for. Hopefully finishing strong can put a positive spin on a disappointing season for both. Gallardo pitched seven strong innings to lead the Brewers to a 3-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday. Since returning in mid-August from a stint on the disabled list because of a hamstring injury, Gallardo is 3-0 with a 1.35 earned run average and looks like the ace who won 16 and 17 games, respectively, the previous two seasons. “I’ve been feeling good,” he said. “That’s the main thing and to be consistent. The year hasn’t gone the way I wanted it to, but coming off the DL kind of refreshes the mental side and you can go out there and just pitch.” Gallardo (11-9) allowed just three hits in his seven innings with one walk and six strikeouts. The Cubs, who dropped to 29-46 at Wrigley Field, could only muster a Junior Lake home run on offense, and wasted a strong but brief outing by starter Scott Baker, who had five shutout innings in his first start of the season following Tommy John Surgery in 2012.

49ers post late win over Packers in early-season dandy BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Frank Gore scored a go-ahead, 1-yard touchdown with 5:47 remaining, Colin Kaepernick threw for a career-high 412 yards and three touchdowns, with 13 completions to Anquan Boldin, and the San Francisco 49ers beat the Green Bay Packers 34-28 on Sunday. Boldin had 208 yards receiving in a spectacular San Francisco debut and Vernon Davis caught a pair of touchdown passes from Kaepernick, who marched his team 80 yards on five plays to take the lead late. The 49ers answered after Packers rookie Eddie Lacy put Green Bay ahead on a 2-yard run with 8:26 left. Aaron Rodgers threw for 333 yards and three touchdowns, but the Packers departed from Candlestick Park with another defeat eight months after losing

NFL Roundup • 45-31 in the NFC divisional playoffs. SAINTS 23, FALCONS 17 Drew Brees passed for 357 yards and two scores, and the Saints held on for the win in coach Sean Payton’s return from his bounty ban. Roman Harper secured the win when he intercepted a tipped fourth-down pass in the end zone with under a minute left. Brees connected with Marques Colston for a 25-yard touchdown pass during which the receiver also set a franchise mark for catches with 533. Brees also hit tight end Jimmy Graham for a 7-yard score in the third quarter. Matt Ryan passed for 304 yards and touchdown

passes to Tony Gonzalez and Julio Jones. He also drove Atlanta to the Saints 3 in the final minute before falling just short. CHIEFS 28, JAGUARS 2 Alex Smith threw two early touchdown passes, Kansas City’s defense dominated all day and the Chiefs began the Andy Reid era with a victory at Jacksonville. Jamaal Charles ran for 77 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game with a quadriceps injury, but that was about the only negative for the Chiefs. Jacksonville advanced past its own 36-yard line just once, a stunning display of offensive futility for the rebuilding franchise. The Jaguars finished with 178 yards, but for most of the game were challenging the team low of 117 yards set last year against Houston.

West Noble 5th, DeKalb ninth at invitational held in Marion

West Noble, Lakeland both tie

MARION — The West Noble boys cross country team finished fifth and DeKalb was ninth at Saturday’s Indiana Wesleyan Invitational held in Marion. Warsaw won the team competition with 81 points. Carroll was second with 103, followed by Noblesville (104), Franklin Central (130), the Chargers (169), Bishop Dwenger (170), Lawrence Central (220), Snider (221) and the Barons (237). Nineteen teams participated in the local schools’ division. The individual winner was Warsaw’s Ellis Coon in 15:21. Brandon Arnold was second in 15:33, and DeKalb’s Mark Beckmann was third in 15:39. In the girls race, Krista McCormick placed eighth overall for DeKalb in 19:29. The Barons finished 11th in the team competition with a score of 243. The event was won by Carroll.

The boys soccer teams from West Noble and Lakeland both played to draws on the road Saturday evening. The Chargers tied with Bethany Christian 3-3 while the Lakers tied at 2 with Sturgis (Mich.). West Noble 3, Bethany Christian 3 At Waterford Mills, Uriel Macias scored twice to lead the Chargers (4-1-2). Miguel Hernandez also scored for West Noble. Abel Zamarripa, Uriel A. Macias and Brian Macias each had an assist. Joeunay Reyes made nine saves in goal. Lakeland 2, Sturgis 2 In Sturgis, Mich., the Lakers (1-4-1) rallied from a 2-0 halftime deficit to draw even. Dustin Cunningham and Eric Carmona scored for Lakeland. Samuel Garcia assisted on Carmona’s tally. Marco Olivares made nine saves in goal.

It wasn’t even close to the start the new coach Gus Bradley wanted, but it was a clear indication of how far the team has to go. PATRIOTS 23, BILLS 21 Stephen Gostkowski hit a 35-yard field goal with 5 seconds left to send New England to the road win. Tom Brady set up the decisive score by leading a 49-yard, 12-play drive during which he twice completed passes to convert third downs. It was Brady’s 36th career victory in which the Patriots were tied or trailed in the fourth quarter. Brady finished 29 of 52 for 288 yards passing and two touchdowns in helping the Patriots win their season opener for the 10th straight season. The new-look Bills nearly pulled off a stunning upset in the first game under coach Doug Marrone

and rookie quarterback EJ Manuel, who completed 18 of 27 passes for 150 yards and two touchdowns. LIONS 34, VIKINGS 24 Reggie Bush turned a short pass into a 77-yard touchdown in the third quarter and finished with 191 yards of offense to help Detroit pull away from Minnesota. Joique Bell ran for two TDs, including a go-ahead score that gave the Lions their first lead early in the third quarter. Matthew Stafford was 28 of 43 for 357 yards with two TDs. His last score was a 1-yard lob to rookie tight end Joseph Fauria with 6:47 left that sealed the win. RAMS 27, CARDINALS 24 Greg Zuerlein kicked a 48-yard field goal with 40 seconds left to lift St. Louis to the comeback victory.

It was Zuerlein’s fourth field goal of the game for the Rams, who trailed 24-13 after three quarters. Larry Fitzgerald caught two touchdown passes from new quarterback Carson Palmer and Arizona’s defense had a TD. Jared Cook had two touchdown catches in his Rams debut. The tight end fumbled a potential third TD, a 55-yarder that would have opened the scoring, when rookie Tyrann Mathieu punched the ball free at the 8 and the play resulted in a touchback. JETS 18, BUCCANEERS 17 Nick Folk kicked a 48-yard field goal with 2 seconds remaining after Lavonte David’s personal foul penalty kept New York’s drive alive, and the Jets pulled out an improbable opening victory.

COLTS: Pryor sets new Raider QB rushing record FROM PAGE B1

We still got it to midfield. We were still on their side of the 50. But then we’d shoot ourselves in the foot.” The miscues allowed Oakland to stay close and even take the lead midway through the fourth quarter with a team that started the day with nine new defensive starters and no announced starting quarterback. But after allowing touchdowns on Indy’s first two series, the Raiders frustrated Luck and the Colts the rest of the day. The most frustrating part for the Colts was Terrelle Pryor. In just his second career start, the Raiders new starting quarterback went 19 of 29 for 217 yards with one touchdown and set a franchise record for yards

rushing by a quarterback. Pryor, the former Ohio State star, carried 13 times for 112 yards, breaking the mark (85 yards) former league MVP Rich Gannon established Oct. 8, 2000. But Pryor made more mistakes than Luck. Pryor threw two interceptions, both in the red zone, and took a 16-yard sack with 68 seconds to go after Oakland reached the Indy 8-yard line. Two plays later, he was picked off by Antoine Bethea at the Colts 4. “I’m disappointed in myself. Taking sacks in unacceptable,” Pryor said. “This loss is on me. At the end of the day, I threw the ball away. I did awful, I thought.” Luck opened the scoring

with a looping 12-yard TD pass to Wayne on the first drive and stood in against Oakland’s pressure to connect with Dwayne Allen on a 20-yard score to make it 14-0. Pryor answered with two long runs to Darren McFadden for a 1-yard TD run that cut the lead to 14-7. And with the score 14-10, Pryor gave Oakland the lead when he hooked up with Denarius Moore on a 5-yard TD pass with 11:09 to go. That’s when Luck responded. On third-and-4 from the Raiders 19, the middle of the field opened up and Luck took off. Oakland couldn’t catch him. “Sometimes when it just opens up like that, you can’t help but go,” Luck said.

SPIN: Control tower sees no intent FROM PAGE B1

When Bowyer spun to bring out the caution, Helton said race control, located in a suite above the track, could not determine if it was done deliberately to aid Truex. “We didn’t see anything that indicated that anything like that was taking place.

And it’s natural when everything was as close as it was between who was going to get in and not go in to scratch your heads and try to figure out and wonder why,” Helton said. “But we didn’t see anything initially (Saturday) night that indicated that.”

Thomas Bjoern of Denmark poses with the trophy after winning the Omega European Masters Golf Tournament in Crans-Montana, Switzerland, Sunday. Bjorn beat Craig Lee in a single-hole playoff.

Bjorn wins European Masters CRANS-SUR-SIERRE, Switzerland (AP) — Thomas Bjorn made a 12-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to beat Craig Lee for the European Masters title on Sunday. Bjorn added to his title from 2011 after watching Lee’s attempt from 15 feet slide left of the hole on the par-4 18th. Earlier, both players missed 20-foot putts for the win in regulation on the foggy, rain-swept final green following a 30-minute suspension for fog to clear. Bjorn, who waited out the delay standing on the 18th tee, missed left and completed his round of 6-under 65. The Dane then watched on TV in the scorer’s hut as the 36-year-old Lee of Scotland sought to clinch his first career title. Lee, who led by two shots after his 61 on Saturday, had his putt catch the right lip of the hole and carded a 67. Both finished regulation at 20-under 264. Victor Dubuisson of France was third, one shot back after shooting 66. Bjorn’s 14th career European Tour title was his first since winning here in 2011, when he closed with 62 to also finish 20 under.

Geniez takes cycling stage PEYRAGUDES, France (AP) — Alexandre Geniez won the grueling 15th stage of the Spanish Vuelta ending with a summit finish in his home country of France, while Vincenzo Nibali fended off his rivals’ attacks to retain the overall lead on Sunday. Geniez broke away on a solo escape before the last of four category-one climbs to claim the 140-mile stage that started in the principality of Andorra, passed through Spanish territory, and finished at the Peyragudes summit. Geniez, riding for FDJ.FR, crossed the finish line in 6 hours, 20 minutes. Nibali, the Giro d’Italia winner, showed his good form by responding to attacks by Alejandro Valverde, Joaquim Rodriguez, and Christopher Horner.

Russia eliminated in Euro hoops championships LJUBLJANA, Slovenia (AP) — Finland edged Russia 86-83 in double overtime Sunday to advance to the second round of the European basketball championship. Finland trailed in both regulation and the first overtime before pulling out the win. The defeat in Koper eliminated Russia, the bronze medalist at the London Olympics last year and at the Europeans two years ago. The top three teams from each group advance. In Celje, NBA stars Ricky Rubio and Marc Gasol scored 15 points apiece to lead defending champion Spain to an 89-53 victory over winless Poland. Five players scored in double figures for Spain (3-1). Spain led 49-13 at halftime and by as many as 48 points before slowing down in the second half. Hanno Mottola sank a 3-pointer for Finland with 3 seconds remaining in regulation to force overtime. Mottola put in a tip-in and Gerald Lee’s lay-up tied the game at the end of the first overtime.

Wrestling returns to Olympics BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Seven months after losing its Olympic place, wrestling was reinstated for the 2020 Games on Sunday when the IOC overturned a decision many members thought was a mistake. The sport, which has ancient roots in the Olympics, easily defeated bids from baseball-softball and squash. It will now join the program of the 2020 Games, which were awarded to Tokyo on Saturday. Wrestling, which was surprisingly dropped from the list of core sports in February, received 49 votes to win in the first round of secret balloting by the International Olympic Committee. Baseball-softball got 24 votes and squash 22. The decision capped a frantic six-month campaign by the wrestling body FILA to revamp the organization and reshape the sport to save its Olympic status. “With this vote, you have shown that the steps we have taken to improve our sport have made a difference,” FILA President Nenad Lalovic said.

Women in Black true to convictions For a number of years, dating to the early days of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, a group of women has protested war, all war, on the southeast quadrant of the Public Square in downtown Angola. The “Women in Black” have been there rain or shine, snow or searing heat for years. They hold up their signs of protest and they do so quietly. The protests last a Saturday morning, and they might include a few men from time to time. If someone honks a horn, they respond with waves. The Women in Black have been out there on the Square through the President George W. Bush years and now through the President Barack Obama years. The wars begun during the Bush administration have become the wars of MIKE Obama. Recently, the MARTURELLO Women in Black brought to one of their protests a model of drone aircraft like those used by the Obama administration to carry out strikes in the Middle East, particularly against al-Qaida. It was a gesture to show the weapon of choice in the current war against al-Qaida, weapons that surgically take out targets — kill people — with pinpoint accuracy. Agree or not, you have to admit, the Women in Black have stuck to their convictions. They have been anti-war, no matter who is in charge in Washington, D.C. And that’s the point, folks. These days, it would seem, whether one is against war or war-like actions on the part of the United States seems to depend on whether you are Republican or Democrat, a recent study says. A study by the University of Michigan’s Michael Heaney and Fabio Rojas of Indiana University concluded that the antiwar movement in the United States demobilized as Democrats, who had been motivated to participate by anti-Republican sentiments, withdrew from antiwar protests when the Democratic Party achieved electoral success, first with Congress in 2006 and then with the presidency in 2008, a University of Michigan on campus publication said. Heaney and Rojas analyzed the demobilization of the antiwar movement by using surveys of 5,400 demonstrators at 27 protests mostly in Washington, D.C., New York, Chicago and San Francisco from January 2007 to December 2009, the story said. If you are following the news these days, with some exceptions, Republicans who you would have once considered hawks are against taking military action against Syria, which reportedly has killed hundreds of its citizens with chemical weapons. On the other side, there are many Democrats who have been anti-war in the past who now are aligning with Obama to take action in Syria. The true anti-war movement in the United States seems to have dwindled quite a bit, if news media coverage of the current events are a true, accurate depiction of what’s going on in this current crisis. As the debate rages on about Syria from the halls of Congress to the coffee shops in northeast Indiana, one thing’s certain: The Women in Black will be out on the Public Square in downtown Angola this Saturday and every second Saturday of the month. You can count on them, no matter who’s running the country, no matter where the next battle might be. They are the anti-war movement, plain and simple. Agree with them or not, you have to admire the Women in Black; they are true to their convictions.

Letters to The Editor • Life and Family Services appreciates ongoing donations To the editor: You may have heard or read that our Teen Parent Early Learning Center was just awarded the Dekko Foundation’s Model of Organizational Sustainability and Effectiveness (MOOSE) grant for $100,000 following 10 years of hard work to qualify! Another part of the MOOSE grant is that for the next five years the Dekko Foundation will match up to $10,000 of new funds raised by our agency for this endowment. While we (the board of directors) are all very excited about this fantastic donation, I need to clarify to donors some of the stipulations and restrictions of this grant. First of all, this grant was actually designated as an endowment donation. This means that none of the grant will be available to Life and Family Services until at least next year, and then only the interest (gains), not the

principal, can be spent. In addition, the money may only be used for the TPELC and not for the Pregnancy and Parenting Resource Center, the BABE Store or Campaign for Our Kids, three other programs of Life and Family Services. I want to assure people that donations will always be needed and appreciated. In many cases, Life and Family Services is the only place where young women can turn to when they have an unplanned pregnancy or desire to reach their educational goals as a teen parents so that they can become financially independent. Our agency serves families with children from conception through kindergarten. In many cases, LFS is the only reason that these young women have not dropped out of school and begun or extended the cycle of poverty.

Spencerville ‘Supper on the Bridge’ grateful for support

To the editor: This year’s Spencerville “Supper on the Bridge” was a great success. This was the 10th year for holding this event. Once again Dutch Heritage Catering provided the food serving over 200 meals. A lot of time and effort given by Roberta Carnahan, Steve and Karen Eck, Pam Farrell, Will and Carmen Fliehman, Beth Freidenberger, Monica and Ann Hollman and Jerry Markle helped to make this day possible. On behalf of the Spencerville community I would like to give a “special thanks” to our county commissioners, Don Grogg, Randy Deetz and Jackie Rowan for all their work and support ensuring the upkeep of the bridge during good times and bad.

Syria raises many timely questions BY DAVID SHRIBMAN

In reflecting on another military adventure in the Middle East, Winston Churchill wrote of the ill-fated Battle of Gallipoli of 1915-1916, “The terrible ifs accumulate.” Barack Obama’s appeal to Congress for support for his military initiative in Syria prompts a slightly different assertion: The stubborn questions accumulate. These questions persist after a hard week of presidential lobbying — from the Cabinet Room of the White House, where Obama invited congressional leaders at the beginning of this remarkable campaign, to hotel rooms in Sweden and Moscow, stops on the president’s G-20 trip that became war rooms in the effort to win backing in Congress to attack Syria. All the meetings and phone calls may provide a tentative answer to the president’s quest, but had the deeply unsettling effect of raising these questions: Having punted the Syria issue up Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol, could the president still move against Syria without congressional approval? This question presents a political squeeze play. On the one hand, by asking for congressional approval before moving against Syria, the president is doing more than suggesting that support of a majority of lawmakers on Capitol Hill is preferable to unilateral presidential action. He is saying it is essential, at least politically. At the same time, the administration is arguing that the executive branch retains constitutional authority to mount such an attack. See the answer Secretary of State John F. Kerry gave to a question posed Tuesday by Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, a tea party favorite and a likely 2016 presidential candidate. All of which raises the next question: Why did the president take this gamble anyway? At first blush, this may seem a question for historians, but it is not. Having taken this gamble in this instance — unnecessary if you extend the administration’s logic as expressed by Kerry — Obama thus may be obliged to do so in the next instance. That is more important than it may appear, for this precedent could undercut the president’s ability to mount a surprise attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities later

this year or early next year. The president can no longer say, in negotiations with Tehran, that nothing is off the table. A clandestine attack almost surely would be. As for the historical view, presidential specialists have long monitored the executive branch’s grabs for power and Congress’ counterpunches. The creation of what the historian Arthur Schlesinger described as the “imperial presidency” was met, for example, by the War Powers Act of 1973. That restricted presidential action and has been opposed by every president since Richard Nixon, who was not bashful about unilateral presidential action in foreign affairs. That prompts the next question: What will be the state of presidential war-making power post-Obama, and has he redrawn the parameters of his successors’ prerogatives? The answer is simple: Maybe. It is true that there have been only 43 presidents (Grover Cleveland served non-consecutive terms and is counted twice, which is why Obama is referred to as the 44th president). It is also true that the presidency is cumulative. As in high school mathematics, you cannot take Algebra II without having mastered Algebra I. And yet this is an ineluctable truth about American politics: Presidents reach back into history for power and authority only when it is in their interests to do so. If Obama wanted to attack Syria without congressional authority, he could have cited Lyndon Johnson in the Dominican Republic or George H.W. Bush in Panama. Those presidents, one a Democrat and one a Republican but — not unimportant in this regard — both Texans, did not ask for congressional approval in operations that were more extended and certainly closer to home than Obama’s operation in Syria. Obama could also cite the actions of two politically incorrect precedents, and presidents, James K. Polk in Mexico and Richard M. Nixon in Cambodia. The former would make the Democrats no friends among Hispanic voters, who have increasingly become an important part of the party’s political calculus. The latter is poison for a liberal Democrat who turned 13 only five days before Nixon resigned. A safer

example: Woodrow Wilson in Mexico in 1913, though Wilson is toxic among the sippers of political tea. Presidents with high approval ratings can sometimes split the difference. George H.W. Bush told — that word is essential here — congressional leaders about the Panama action after a Christmas party in 1989 and only hours before the operation began. Then again, before moving against Iraq in 1991, Bush sought and won congressional approval. Is there, as Obama and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel suggested, a modern-day domino theory at work, or could there be the phenomenon of Appeasement Redux? Hagel is a veteran of the Vietnam War, which was prosecuted in large measure out of fear that if Vietnam fell, then so might Laos, and then South Korea and then perhaps Japan as well. There certainly is regional tumult in the area of the globe once known as the Levant. But just as that term has fallen out of favor — it’s mainly used today by archaeologists — so may have the metaphor of the domino, which in any case belongs more to the 17th century than to the 21st. Nearly two years after the beginning of the Arab Spring, we now know there are many Arab Springs; the one in Egypt was different from the one in Libya and elsewhere. The war in Vietnam also was prosecuted on the basis of the lessons of Munich, which postulated that if aggression were unanswered in one place (Czechoslovakia) then there would be aggression again in other places (Poland). That certainly was true in 1938, but it may or may not be true three-quarters of a century later. The lessons of history are more complex than simply grafting old notions onto new situations. History never repeats itself — that’s Lesson One of history — and the lessons are valuable only if they are applied selectively. History is best utilized to understand the past and to explain the present. It’s a rearview mirror, not a telescope, and hardly ever much help in predicting the future. DAVID M. SHRIBMAN is executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Family’s ailing nanny needs chance to heal DEAR ABBY: Our nanny, who is 58, was diagnosed with breast cancer just before I delivered baby No. 2. The boys are now 15 months and 4 weeks old. “Nora” has started chemotherapy after having surgery. I completely understand that she has to attend to her needs right now and focus on her health, but she wanted to continue working without it being an issue. Nora has had to take off several days already in addition to being — as I expected — tired and unable to keep up with my active toddler. I start back to work soon and my job is a demanding one. My husband and I have discussed options and feel it would be best to mandate that Nora take this time off. We will have to make other arrangements for child care, and I can’t guarantee Nora’s job when she feels better. She has taken such good

care of our first son it kills me to have to let her go, especially while she’s dealing with cancer. But I must return to work and do what’s best for my kids. Any advice? — MOMMY DEAR MOMMY: Have a meeting with DEAR Nora and your ABBY explain concerns. Ask if she knows Jeanne Phillips someone reliable who could watch the children on those days when she is too weak to do so. Or contact a household staffing agency about getting a temporary fill-in. It would be far more humane than firing her. For Nora’s sake, please try it. If my suggestions don’t

work, revisit letting her go at a later time. DEAR ABBY: My 61-year-old father was arrested recently for 30 counts of possession of child pornography. He has had a rough past -- he cheated on my mother and has had multiple stints in rehab for alcohol abuse. During my teenage years he verbally abused me. My mother is in denial about the entire situation and the fact that he is facing time in prison for his actions. Nine months ago, my husband and I were blessed with the birth of our beautiful baby girl. I feel I must protect her from my parents and my father in particular. Am I wrong for not wanting my father and possibly my mother any longer in my life? — TOUGH LOVE IN FLORIDA DEAR TOUGH LOVE: No. the well-being of your child must come first.

SSRIs are considered safe for long-term use cell to another. Basically, neurotransmitters are the way nerve cells talk to each other. Between one nerve cell and another there is a small space. One cell releases a neurotransmitter into that space; the neurotransmitter travels like a boat across a pond ASK and locks onto DOCTOR K. a structure on the other cell. The structure called a Dr. Anthony isreceptor. Komaroff When serotonin released by one cell travels to another cell and locks onto its receptor, one cell has “talked” to another. SSRIs cause more serotonin signals to travel from one

brain cell to another. As a result, SSRIs amplify the effects of serotonin on mood and anxiety. SSRIs may indirectly influence other neurotransmitters that also play a role in anxiety. These include norepinephrine and dopamine. SSRIs are generally safe drugs. A big reason they’re popular — with doctors and patients — is that they have fewer and less severe side effects than older anxiety medications. The side effects of SSRIs that some people experience include insomnia, rashes, headaches, joint and muscle pain, stomach upset, nausea and diarrhea. SSRIs also can diminish sexual desire, performance and satisfaction. In some people, they do all three. SSRIs can also have dangerous interactions with some other medicines. The most important is an increased risk of bleeding in people who also are using blood-thinning

DEAR DOCTOR K: I have been taking an SSRI for years for chronic anxiety. Are there side effects of long-term SSRI use? DEAR READER: All medicines can have side effects, and SSRIs are no exception. But like most medicines, SSRIs do more good than harm. What are SSRIs? The full name is selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). They were created to treat depression, but they also have been a first choice treatment for anxiety disorders since the 1990s. Popular SSRIs include citalopram (Celexa), escitalopram (Lexapro), fluoxetine (Prozac), fluvoxamine (Luvox), paroxetine (Paxil) and sertraline (Zoloft). SSRIs target the natural brain chemical called serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that affects anxiety and mood. A neurotransmitter is a chemical that travels from one nerve

medicines. Blood thinners include aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and warfarin. Very rarely, people taking SSRIs can develop a serious condition called serotonin syndrome. The symptoms include fever, rapid heartbeat, dilated pupils, agitation, confusion and even coma. I’ve never seen this rare but serious side effect. Finally, the Food and Drug Administration warns that in children, teens and young adults, SSRIs may increase thoughts of suicide and suicidal attempts. But if you’ve already been taking an SSRI for many years and have not had such thoughts, then you probably are at no higher risk of having them in the future. DR.

Small California city welcomes New details new style of doomsday bunkers come out on Boy Scout abuse LOS ANGELES (AP) — In the backyard of his remote Southern California home, Bernie Jones is etching an unconventional blueprint: a construction plan to build his underground survival shelter. It won’t be the typical, cramped Cold War-era bunker. It will hold 20 people. Part of a small but vocal group of survivalists in Menifee, some 80 miles east of Los Angeles, Jones, 46, has pushed for the right to build a bunker on his 1-acre property for nearly a year. He wants to be ready for anything, be it natural disaster or a nuclear attack. “The world is taking a change,” he says. “I want to be prepared. I want my family to survive.” Residents of the small city once known for its farming and mining can begin applying for permits to build their subterranean housing this month after the City Council passed a hotly contested ordinance allowing the practice. Americans have been building underground bunkers for decades, their interest in such shelters waxing and waning with current events. Many dug backyard fallout shelters during the Cold War, fearing a nuclear war. This next generation of bunkers comes as many survivalists face heightened concerns of a terrorist attack, economic meltdown and for some, even solar flares or meteor showers. “The bunker is a type of security blanket,” says Stephen O’Leary, an expert in apocalyptic and end-ofthe-world theories at the University of Southern California. “They are concerned with what’s happening in the world on a massive scale.” The move to allow below-ground bunkers has created waves among city

AP

Atlas Survival Shelters owner Ron Hubbard shows a shelter made of galvanized corrugated pipe at his plant in Montebello, Calif. The City Council in Menifee in Riverside County has approved a controversial ordinance that will allow residents to build underground bunkers on their properties.

officials who are concerned with earthquake faults in the area, safety of police and first responders answering emergency calls and the potential for owners to hide criminal activity, such as drug manufacturing. “Most people are going to use their bunkers for good reason, but you do have some sick people out there,” Deputy Mayor Wallace Edgerton says. “Children have been held in bunkers.” In February, a 5-yearold boy was held hostage for six days in an Alabama underground bunker, which was rigged with explosive devices. City Councilman Tom Fuhrman calls the ordinance a victory for property rights, not for those looking to break the law. “Criminal activity isn’t going to be stopped by not allowing people to build bunkers,” Fuhrman says. “A criminal will find a place to commit crime.”

There are signs survival bunkers are making a comeback throughout the country. Ronald Hubbard, who runs Atlas Survival Shelters near Los Angeles, ships his luxury bunkers out of state. Unlike Cold War-era shelters, he builds ones that are half the length of a basketball court and have a master bedroom, dining nook and a couch to watch a 47-inch flat screen TV. Hubbard says his phones rang nonstop last December as people attempted to prepare for the end of the world that never came. A 5,125-year cycle in the Mayan calendar passed by, sans disaster. The Perseid meteors soaring through the sky last month had customers calling him constantly, looking for a way to stay safe in case one hit Earth — even though it’s an annual celestial event. He insists his customers are practical people — not radical doomsday preppers. “I’m not fear mongering,” Hubbard said, standing beside a $65,000 shelter in his warehouse. “Why do we buy insurance? Just in case.” The Vivos shelter networks in Indiana and Kansas offer the equivalent of doomsday timeshares in underground communities in

the event of the apocalypse. The network aims to protect its inhabitants for up to a year from myriad catastrophes, including a nuclear disaster. Preppers — who dedicate their time to ensuring they are ready for a host of deadly scenarios — even have their own reality TV show. People should spend time preparing for likely disasters instead of Armageddon, said Steve Davis, president of emergency management company All Hands Consulting. “In California, you have earthquakes. On the East Coast, you have winter storms,” Davis says. “People should be focusing on basic preparedness.” Jones, who has six children and seven grandchildren, says he simply wants to protect his loved ones. The contractor has already stocked his home with medical kits and enough food for his family to survive for about three months should a disaster strike. He keeps a bag in his truck packed with five days’ worth of food and water, a raincoat, a thermal and “the world’s smallest sleeping bag.” “It’s all part of being ready for whatever happens,” Jones says.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Confidential files turned over for a lawsuit set to go to trial in Minnesota may shed new light on the problem of sexual abuse within the Boy Scouts of America. The documents were produced in litigation brought against the Boy Scouts and a former scoutmaster, Peter Stibal II, who is serving 21 years in prison for molesting four Scouts. Attorneys for one former Scout won a court order for the nationwide internal files, commonly known as “ineligible volunteer” or “perversion files.” They cover the years 1999-2008, much more recent than similar files forced into the open in an Oregon case last year. “We are intending to use those to show they have had a longstanding knowledge of the scope of a serious problem like Stibal,” said Jeffrey Anderson, the lead attorney for the molested Scout. “They kept files not known

to the troops and members of the public and had a body of knowledge that was not made public.” Anderson, who built a national reputation for frequent lawsuits in clergy abuse cases, declined to say what the new documents might show ahead of the trial that begins Monday in St. Paul. He said he expects attorneys for the Scouts to try to block the introduction and release of the files. He wouldn’t say how many former leaders the files cover. But the release of more than 1,200 files in the Oregon case suggests the number could be large. An attorney for the Scouts did not return messages seeking comment. The Scouts’ public relations director, Deron Smith, said in a prepared statement that protecting Scouts is “of paramount importance” to the organization, which claims over 2.6 million young people and over 1 million adult leaders as members in its various branches.

Secrecy surrounds end of ‘Mad Men’ TORONTO (AP) — Matthew Weiner is accustomed to anxiously guarding the secrecy of “Mad Men.” Talking candidly about his feature film directing debut, “You Are Here,” goes against his practiced paranoia. “It’s weird,” he says, laughing. “I guess in this case, you really kind of want to tell people what it’s about.” Then, after a pause, he’s himself again. “But I do think, like all entertainment, on some level: the less you know, the better.” At the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday, Weiner premiered “You Are Here,” a contemporary comedy about a Maryland weatherman (Owen Wilson) whose best

friend from childhood (Zach Galifianakis) is bequeathed a lucrative country estate by his deceased father. It forces both friends to grow up and face some things in their life. “Male friendship is so complicated and you sort of wonder: What is the purpose of it?” Weiner said in a recent interview. “That’s kind of what I was writing about, these two characters who are bound together by not growing up, and what happens if somebody starts to move on?” The film, a mix of comedy and drama, doesn’t bear any of the stylish severity of “Mad Men,” his AMC cable TV drama about a Madison Avenue advertising agency in the ’60s.
