Angola, DeKalb marching bands reach state finals INDIANAPOLIS — High school marching bands from Angola and DeKalb qualified for the state finals with their performances in semi-state contests Saturday in Indianapolis. East Noble’s band failed to qualify, falling short of the top 10 in the Class B semi-state despite posting its highest score of the season from judges. DeKalb in Class B and Angola in Class C will participate in the state finals next Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis. Twenty bands performed at each semi-state Saturday, with judges choosing the top 10 for the state finals. DeKalb competed at Pike High School. Other Class B bands making the cut are Concord, Greenwood, Jasper, Northview, Floyd Central, New Castle, Munster, Plymouth and Plainfield, according to the website Angola qualified in the semi-state at Decatur Central High School. Joining Angola in the Class C finals will be Concordia Lutheran, Beech Grove, Fairfield, Western, Norwell, NorthWood, Mount Vernon, Edgewood and Vincennes-Lincoln.

New rules affect teacher pay BY KATHRYN BASSETT

Many school districts in northeast Indiana have settled teacher contracts this fall using new state laws affecting teacher pay. Raises now are given only to teachers who are rated “effective” or “highly effective.” Teachers who are rated “ineffective” or “needs improvement” do not receive raises. “No matter what district, teachers will be placed in one of the four” categories, said DeKalb Central superintendent Sherry Grate.

“Unfortunately, what has happened is that teachers in Indiana have felt like they’ve gotten blamed for everything wrong with education.” Ryan Lengacher DeKalb Educators Association president

• Teacher-evaluation models could differ between school districts, Grate added. The Indiana Department of Education created a

RISE model that districts may use. Districts also may create their own models, but must include parameters determined by the state, she

added. In all models, teachers must be evaluated annually, and evaluations must include objective data of student achievement. Statewide and local student assessments may be used. The RISE evaluation model looks at a teacher’s purposeful planning, effective instruction and leadership. A “highly effective” rating means the teacher consistently exceeds expectations for professional practice, student achievement and professional contribution SEE TEACHERS, PAGE A8

Serving HALLOWEEN HOUSE time through Waterloo’s spooky display tops itself again community service Holiday Fun


WATERLOO – Deb Iddings is pretty easy to find come October. She’s out decorating the yard of her old home on West Union Street. It’s easy to spot, considering the gross quantity of spooky decor planted on just about every available inch of her property. And besides that, the traffic usually slows to a crawl as passing motorists turn into gawkers. Iddings lives at and creates what has become known around Waterloo as the “Halloween House,” on U.S. 6 just west of the Wayne Street traffic light. It’s aptly named. Her display features zombies, aliens, skeletons, ghosts, goblins, giant spiders, gargoyles and witches. There are motion-activated haunts, masks from just about every nightmare imaginable, and handmade tombstones and coffins, including a full-sized antique coffin from the 1800s with a glass front that houses the Crypt Keeper from the popular “Tales from the Crypt” television series. (That item only comes out on Halloween night.) There’s an actual hearse with, yes, a coffin inside. Iddings goes all-out this time of year turning her 1885-built home into an attraction that draws visitors from Chicago and Ohio and generations of anyone who dares pass through the gates. It’s been her passion for 28 years, she says, and it’s gotten progressively larger each year. This year, Iddings and her husband bought a black, 21-foot-long 1973 Oldsmobile hearse to park off to the side and turned a boat out back into the eery “Lost Souls Tavern.” It’s serious business. “I love it,” said Iddings. “I can hardly wait until ACD

GOP hopes Obama health care woes have staying power WASHINGTON (AP) — For nearly five years, Republicans have struggled to make a scandal stick to President Barack Obama’s White House. One by one, the controversies — with shorthand names such as Solyndra, Benghazi, and Fast and Furious — hit a fever pitch, then faded away. But some Republicans see the disastrous rollout of Obama’s health law as a problem with the kind of staying power they have sought. The health care failures are tangible for millions of Americans

and can be experienced by anyone with Internet access. The law itself is more closely associated with Obama personally and long has been unpopular with the majority of the American people. The longer the technical problems persist, the more likely they are to affect the delicate balance of enrollees needed in the insurance marketplace in order to keep costs down. “There’s no question the issue has legs, in part because it affects so many Americans very directly

and in part because the glitches with the website are simply one of many fundamental problems with this law,” GOP pollster Whit Ayres said. The cascade of computer problems began Oct. 1, when sign-ups opened for the marketplaces at the center of the law. Administration officials blamed the problems on high volume, but have since acknowledged more systemic issues with White House officials contend the website is just one piece of the broader law offering an array

of benefits. They say that when the online issues are fixed — the latest estimate is the site will be working normally for most users by the end of November — few people will remember the problems that have marred the opening weeks of the six-month enrollment window. “It says a lot about Republicans that their focus here is not on helping Americans get insured, but on making political hay of this mess,” said Dan Pfeiffer, Obama’s senior adviser.





Groundbreaking date set for Draft Animal Museum


Zombie Walk for charity The Grzelak family of Kendallville leads the way in Saturday afternoon’s Zombie Walk through downtown Kendallville. From left are Don, daughter Vivi and Brooke.

A group of about two dozen people participated in the annual walk and donated items for the Friendship Food Pantry and Noble County Humane Shelter.

AUBURN — The DeKalb County Horsemen’s Association will hold a groundbreaking ceremony Sunday, Nov. 3, at 1 p.m. for a Draft Animal Museum at its farm at 5873 C.R. 427 south of Auburn The event is open to the public and will feature horsedrawn wagon rides on the farm, antique equipment displays and information about the new facility being built at the site. The DeKalb County Horsemen’s Association consists of a group of individuals who believe in the past, present and future purpose of draft animals. For more than 74 years, the association has worked to educate the general public about the usefulness of draft animals in society. The association’s work has been accomplished through public service educational programs, demonstrations, draft animal shows, funeral service assistance, 4-H club involvement and horsedrawn services for both public and private events covering all

12 months of the calendar year. The activities are conducted by volunteer association members in and around northeast Indiana. Donations received from both public and private groups in support of the association’s goals, membership dues, and donations for services performed by volunteer members make up the funding source of the association’s activities. The association provides both monetary and services support to other not-forprofit organizations in northeast Indiana. In 2010, the association began a fundraising campaign with a goal of purchasing land and erecting a home base in the form of a Draft Animal Museum. The association said the museum will reach out to the general public and advance its mission, building an educated understanding of the true value of the draft animal in the past and in today’s fast-paced society.

ELKHART (AP) — The author of Indiana’s lifeline law, which encourages underage drinkers to seek medical help for others who are dangerously intoxicated, says after visiting college campuses he wants to expand it to also give them immunity under other circumstances. State Sen. Jim Merritt, R-Indianapolis, told The Elkhart Truth he will introduce the expanded law in the 2014 General Assembly, calling it “a common-sense change.” The original law passed last year with help from student leaders at Indiana’s universities. “The spirit of this law is that kids make mistakes, and you need to help one another and be good Samaritans,” he said. “This

(change) … just says, if someone is needing medical attention, call 911. And if you’ve had alcohol, you have immunity.” He said the change is based on feedback he’s received while visiting college campuses with Attorney General Greg Zoeller to let students know about the law. He said some students were concerned that they would get in trouble for calling for help for a friend who had used drugs or if they were unsure why someone they were with needed help. “The overriding input I get is that kids aren’t doctors, and how do they know if (the friend’s medical problem) isn’t drugs, or maybe the person hit their head or something,” Merritt said.

Ball State president retiring


MUNCIE (AP) — The president of Ball State University, the first woman to serve as president of a public university in Indiana, has announced she will retire next year. The university announced in a news release issued Saturday that Jo Ann Gora told board of trustee members on Friday that she plans to retire in June. “This year will be my 10th as president at Ball State but my 40th in higher education,” Gora said in a statement released by the university. “It has been a rewarding and fulfilling career, especially these years in Indiana.” Board President Hollis Hughes praised Gora’s work as a president. “Jo Ann Gora has taken Ball State to new levels of excellence and recognition during her presidency. There is no good time to say goodbye to such a leader, but the university is well positioned to continue to press forward in the course she has helped us set,” Hughes said. The university underwent more than $520 million of facilities construction and renovation during the time she was president. That included a $70 million geothermal project that taps the earth’s nearly constant temperature for campus heating and cooling.

Stutzman isn’t so quick to write off another shutdown as means of changing Obamacare



Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann, left, talks with Noble County EDC director Rick Sherck following a discussion with local industrial and agriculture business leaders at B & J Medical Inc., on U.S. 6 west of Kendallville as part of her Listen & Learn Tour of Indiana’s 92 counties Tuesday.

Lieutenant governor hears need for workers KENDALLVILLE — “A sense of urgency” is how Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann described what she heard from local and area business leaders regarding their need for skilled workers. Ellspermann stopped at B & J Medical Inc., on U.S. 6 west of Kendallville, and the Noble County Courthouse in Albion Tuesday afternoon as part of her Listen & Learn Tour of Indiana’s 92 counties. At both sites, she listened to business leaders and elected officials to learn about the strengths, challenges and priorities of Noble County. She also visited LaGrange County Tuesday morning for a Listen & Learn session at Yoder Popcorn Co. in Topeka. Ellespermann said one topic of her conversation with business leaders was the need to develop a skilled work force. She said it was “eye-opening” for her how desperate local and area businesses are for skilled labor.

Reed to lead Prairie Heights schools BRUSHY PRAIRIE — Jeff Reed has been easing into the top job at Prairie Heights Community Schools this year and will assume the reins once Superintendent Alan Middleton retires. Reed, currently assistant superintendent and principal of Prairie Heights Middle School, was named to the superintendent’s position Monday by the Prairie Heights Board of Education. He will become superintendent July 1, 2014, when Middleton retires. Middleton has served as superintendent the last five years. For the last seven years, Reed has been at Prairie Heights, first as assistant principal for three years at the middle school, followed by four years as principal.

East Noble teachers to get raises ROME CITY — Nearly all East Noble teachers will receive pay raises this school year based on units earned during the 2012-2013 school year from their classroom performance. Most teachers also could receive bonuses based on units earned for perfect attendance, leadership and professional development participation. The East Noble school board Wednesday night approved the increases in base pay using money from a Performance Grant of $287,136 the school district received about 18 months ago, said Superintendent Ann Linson. The board met at the Rome City Elementary School. As a result of a state law enacted two years ago, Indiana public school teachers no longer receive yearly increment increases based on experience or negotiated percentage increases. Pay raises must be based on teacher performance evaluations by administrators and rating teachers as “highly effective,” “effective,” “needs improvement” and “ineffective.”

Local young women win pageant crowns KENDALLVILLE — Three East Noble High School students won awards at Saturday’s Three Rivers Festival Pageant at Carroll High School in Allen County. Senior Lauren Butler, 18, daughter of Scott and Carla Butler of Kendallville, was crowned Miss Three Rivers. She topped 22 other contestants in the competition that included talent, evening gown and swimsuit competition and judges’ interviews. East Noble sophomore Maddison Bryan, 15, daughter of Bob and Kristie Bryan of LaOtto, was crowned Miss Three Rivers Outstanding Teen. Sophomore Alyssa Gulick, 15, was first runner-up in the Outstanding Teen pageant. She also won the People’s Choice Award.

Steuben, LaGrange explore sharing plan ANGOLA — Steuben County Commissioners are continuing with exploration of a shared human resources officer for Steuben and LaGrange counties. Commissioners approved a measure to keep the talks moving forward and offered a draft memorandum of understanding to be presented to LaGrange officials. Last week officials from both counties met to discuss the possibility of having a shared HR person. During discussion on the proposal Monday, Ron Smith, president of the Steuben commissioners, said he thinks Steuben County needs its own dedicated HR person and he would vote against the sharing plan. He added that it would be difficult for an HR person to serve both counties.

The country isn’t likely to see another shuttering of the federal government this year, but one member of Congress said in an interview he would not rule it out as an option in the future. Since the shutdown, Republican leaders have backed away from the tactic of attempting to cripple the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act by refusing to pass a federal budget that funds it. While Standard & Poor’s estimated that the 16-day shutdown cost the U.S. economy $24 billion, public opinion of the Republican Party’s handling of the shutdown fell dramatically, hitting a 77-percent disapproval rate, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll. But Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-3rd, disagreed with the poll results, and he would not rule out the possibility of trying to shut down the federal government once again if President Barack Obama is unwilling to change the Affordable Care Act. “No disrespect to you, but you can’t get your facts from the media. You can’t get it from The New York Times or The Washington Post,” he said. Stutzman added that he feels the emails, letters and phone calls he receives from his constituents are a better barometer of public opinion than any national poll. As for whether he would once again vote for a measure that would result in a government shutdown, he said it “is up to the president.” “My hope is that the president, come January, will have realized that Obamacare needs to be reformed and will come and talk,” Stutzman said. “We went above and beyond, and they didn’t even negotiate and come to the table and say, ‘Let’s do tax reform, or let’s do the farm bill,’ or any of our proposals.” Regardless of ideological opinions about the Affordable Care Act, the shutdown damaged the United States both economically and politically, said Lee Hamilton, the director of the Center on Congress, a nonpartisan educational institution at Indiana University. “We reached a point where it brought ridicule to the nation, and raised questions in the minds of our friends as to whether


Rep. Marlin Stutzman, shown in this file photo, would like to see Democrats be willing to reform the Patient Protec-

our government could work and whether it could function,” Hamilton said. “I do not think we should repeat it.” Hamilton, a Democrat, served in Congress for 34 years, representing the 9th District of Indiana. It is difficult to quantify exactly how the government shutdown affected the economy in northeast Hamilton Indiana. About 1,200 federal employees were furloughed, and an unknown number of federal Coats contractors were unable to do jobs throughout the region. Stutzman voted against a measure sent over from the Senate to fund government operations through mid-January and raise the country’s debt ceiling through Feb. 7, although it ultimately passed in both bodies. Sen. Dan Coats, said he voted to end the shutdown because the “strategy didn’t work, and it was evident that no Democrat was going to join us,” he said. He added that “without bipartisan support there’s no way” to eliminate funding for the Affordable Care Act. “I think the president had dug in on this to the point where he was unwilling to

• change anything that would dismantle or change his signature program,” Coats said. He said the strategy of instigating a government shutdown had some shortcomings. “I had some reservations about this tactic but it was used anyway. The shutdown tactic was engineered by one of the lobby groups, and Sen. (Ted) Cruz took off with it,” he said, referring to the Texas senator. Coats said he does not see another government shutdown as a viable option. “It didn’t work the first time,” he said. “And I don’t think it would work another time.” The Republican strategy will be to wait for the Affordable Care Act to fail. “What’s left to be done is to let the American people see how dysfunctional this is and not be blamed for a shutdown, and to get Democrats to support us,” Coats said. For now, Coats may be getting his wish. Implementation of the Affordable Care Act has run into signif-

icant roadblocks, including individuals not being able to buy health insurance via the website. Hamilton warned that if the House of Representatives attempts another government shutdown it will have unintended consequences. For one, if this tactic were to become the norm, Republicans might well find themselves facing a Democratic standoff sometime in the future. Also, when the House shows itself to be so dysfunctional, it cedes some of its power to other branches or institutions, such as the executive branch or the Federal Reserve. Ultimately, Hamilton hopes Congress can find some stability and begin to legislate in a more conventional, traditional manner. “Let’s have confidence in this system that has served us well, and not use a tactic that has brought us to the brink of disaster,” he said. “A great democracy does not lurch from doomsday to doomsday. We confront and meet our challenges. We pay our bills, and we serve our people.”

AUBURN — Wayne Paradise went to extremes to make sure broadcasts for Auburn’s radio station WIFF made it on air. Those extremes involved high places. He scaled the roof of the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum to place equipment in an optimum transmitting location. Inside the Coliseum, he climbed to the ceiling to make sure broadcasts made it on air. Paradise founded WIFF radio in Auburn in 1967 and later introduced TV7. His company served the community until 1997, before he sold it to WGL in 1997. He died Sept. 9 at the age of 76. Paradise was resourceful, loyal and committed to Auburn and DeKalb County, said Greg Vick, a sportscaster at the station for 20 years. Paradise grew up in “the Region,” the nickname applied to northwest Indiana, where crime was high and steel mills employed thousands, Vick said. He was born in Hammond in 1936. “Kids from those areas were called Region Rats,” Vick said. Paradise always had his sights on the radio business, said Pamela, his wife of 46 years. His passions were electronics and music. He worked part-time as a disk jockey on an all-religious station in Calumet. He was given advice to “get off his butt and go after his dream,” Pamela said. Paradise sought out the perfect location to make his dream come true. He found an inexpensive radio channel in DeKalb County and acquired it in 1964. He purchased the former transmittter building of WNIT, now WANE-TV. The station went live on April 10, 1967. Its first format was religious music and programming. Paradise supported the format with his personal record collection.

Mary Foltz SPENCERVILLE — Mary Elizabeth Foltz, 88, died Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013, at Saint Anne Home and Retirement Community in Fort Wayne.

ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE, Md. (AP) — A growing number of military parents want to end the age-old tradition of switching schools for their kids. They’ve embraced homeschooling, and are finding support on bases, which are providing resources for families and opening their doors for home schooling cooperatives and other events. “If there’s a military installation, there’s very likely home-schoolers there if you look,” said Nicole McGhee, 31, of Cameron, N.C., a mother of three with

a husband stationed at North Carolina’s Fort Bragg who runs a Facebook site on military home schooling. At Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia, the library sported special presentations for home-schoolers on Benjamin Franklin and static electricity. Fort Bragg offers daytime taekwondo classes. At Fort Belvoir, Va., there are athletic events and a parent-led chemistry lab. At Andrews Air Force Base about 15 miles outside of Washington, more than 40 families participate on Wednesdays in a home

Wayne Paradise at the microphone in the early days of WIFF radio.

“He had hundreds of records,” Pamela said. Paradise emphasized local news and on-the-spot broadcasts from an advertiser’s place of business. When an AM station became available in 1968, Paradise purchased it. WIFF-AM went to an all-country music format. The FM station came to be known as “A Touch of Velvet.” WIFF created a culture where family values thrived, said Pat Hoffman, WANE TV-news anchor. He got his first job at WIFF after he graduated from broadcasting school. Hoffman said he didn’t know anything at the time, but he learned all he needed to know at the Auburn station. “It had a huge impact on my career,” Hoffman said. “(Wayne) was always there with an encouraging word,” Hoffman said. “He always had a positive spin.” Paradise was not above doing what needed to be done in small-market radio, Hoffman said. “He would clean up and he was not opposed to pushing the broom,“ Hoffman said. “He was an incredible man.” Programming at the station was

Mildred Fields GARRETT — Mildred Fields, 90, of Garrett died Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013, at Miller’s Merry Manor in Garrett. She was born April 30, 1923, in Morgan County, Ky., to Thomas and Bertha (Ferguson) Stamper. She worked for 36 years at Electric Motors and Specialties in Garrett before retiring in 1988. She attended the Garrett United Methodist church

“local, local, local,” Hoffman said. A popular program on the radio station was called “Trading Post,” where local people called in items for sale. The station broadcast DeKalb County sports, 4-H events and Christmas programs. While Vick worked at the station, the sports department averaged about 80-100 broadcasts per year. Paradise traveled with Vick to state tournaments to make sure broadcasts made it on air. Paradise was very loyal to his employees, his community and his family. “He had many workers who served him faithfully,” Vick said. “It was definitely a WIFF family,” Vick said. “You always felt part of the family.” Jane Kempf of Auburn served as the first news director for WIFF, her first job after having children. “He was a wonderful boss,” Kempf said. “He put my nose to the news grindstone and let me at it alone.” “He had a lot of vision for the radio station,” Kempf said. “He had the good sense to get enough people who knew what they were doing.”

schooling cooperative at the base’s youth center. Earlier this month, teenagers in one room warmed up for a mock audition reciting sayings such as “red leather, yellow leather.” Younger kids downstairs learned to sign words such as “play” and searched for “Special Agent Stan” during a math game. Military moms taught each class. There are also events outside the co-op, such as a planned camping trip for kids reading Jean Craighead’s “My Side of the Mountain.” “Some weeks I wonder how my kids are going to do the school side of school because they are so busy

socializing,” said Joanna Hemp, the co-op’s welcome coordinator. Military families move on average nearly every three years. The transition can be tough for children, and home schooling can make it easier, advocates say. The children don’t have to adjust to a new teacher or worry that they’re behind because the new school’s curriculum is different. Some military families also cite the same reasons for choosing home schooling as those in the civilian population: a desire to educate their kids in a religious environment, concern about the school environment, or to provide

for a child with special needs. Two 16-year-olds, Andrew Roberts and Christina Cagle, interviewed at the Andrews co-op say they are happy their parents made the decision to home-school them. Roberts said he thinks he gets a lot more done in a school day than peers in a traditional school, and he sees his friends plenty at Bible study groups and during other social events with other teenagers on base. “There’s not like a lot of peer pressure considering you’re mostly with your siblings and it’s kind of a relaxed environment,” Cagle said.

Detroit pins hopes on new arena, transit line


In this image made from video provided by theOct26thDriving campaign, which has been authenticated based on its

contents and other AP reporting, a Saudi woman drives a vehicle in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Saturday.

Saudi women drive in successful protest RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — More than 60 women across Saudi Arabia claimed they drove cars Saturday in defiance of a ban keeping them from getting behind the wheel, facing little protest by police in their push for easing restrictions on women in the kingdom. The campaign’s message is that driving should be a woman’s choice. The struggle is rooted in the kingdom’s hard-line interpretation of Islam known as Wahabbism, with critics warning that women driving could unravel the very fabric of Saudi society. Though no laws ban women from driving in Saudi Arabia, authorities do not issue them licenses. Women who drove on Saturday had driver’s licenses from abroad, activists said. Activist Aziza Youssef, a professor at King Saud University, and another activist said protest organizers received 13 videos and about 50 phone messages from women showing or claiming they had driven. She said they have no way to verify the messages. May Al Sawyan, a 32-year-old mother of

two and an economic researcher, told The Associated Press that she drove from her home in Riyadh to the grocery store and back. Activists uploaded a four-minute video of her driving to the campaign’s YouTube account. Al Sawyan said she was prepared to be jailed if caught by authorities. She said she was far enough from a police car that she was not spotted. “I just took a small loop,” she said. “I didn’t drive for a long way, but it was fine.” Al Sawyan’s husband and family waited at home and called her nervously when she arrived at the store to check on her, she said. She drove with a local female television reporter in the car. They were both without male relatives in the vehicle, which in itself defies the country’s strict norms requiring women to have a male relative in public. “I am very happy and proud that there was no reaction against me,” Al Sawyan said. It is not clear if police turned a blind eye to women driving or simply did not see the scattered, quick spins around towns. An AP journalist in Riyadh said there were no roadblocks or

checkpoints set up to watch for female drivers. He saw only a few law enforcement vehicles on the road. A security official said authorities did not arrest or fine any female drivers on Saturday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. Ahead of the protest, authorities offered mixed messages, perhaps cautious not to push too hard against the kingdom’s religious establishment. Hard-line clerics say women driving will lead to “licentiousness.” A prominent cleric also caused a stir when he said that medical studies show driving a car harms a woman’s ovaries. The ministry that oversees the police warned that violators who “disturb public peace” would be dealt with forcefully. The statement catered to conservatives who saw this as directed at women drivers, but was also interpreted by reformers to be directed at anyone who harasses women drivers. “This is part of the politics,” said Youssef, the activist and professor. “My analysis is that government is doing all this to protect ladies from the harassers.”

DETROIT (AP) — It may be too broke to pay its bills or even respond to 911 calls on time, but Detroit is still thinking big. As the debt-ridden metropolis moves through bankruptcy proceedings that are turning its empty pockets inside-out, local and state leaders are proposing expensive new projects, including a hockey arena doubling as an events center, plus a mass transit line. If built, the developments would cost $800 million and bet at least $300 million in future tax revenues on an effort to attract people to a place that residents have been fleeing for 60 years. Skeptics say the plans are needlessly risky for a city with so much debt that it can’t fund services as simple as streetlights. Spending hundreds of millions on

Jay-Z defends deal with luxury store


NEW YORK (AP) — Jay-Z — under increasing pressure to back out of a collaboration with the luxury store Barneys New York after it was accused of racially profiling two black customers — said Saturday he’s being unfairly “demonized” for just waiting to hear all of the facts. The rap mogul made his first statement about the controversy in a posting on his website. He has come under fire for remaining silent as news surfaced this week that two young black people Jay-Z said they were profiled by Barneys after they purchased expensive items from their Manhattan store. An online petition and Twitter messages from fans have been circulating this week, calling on the star to bow out of his upcoming partnership with Barneys for the holiday season, which will have the store selling items by top designers, inspired by Jay-Z, with some of the proceeds going to his charity. He is also working with the store to create its artistic holiday window display. But Jay-Z — whose real name is Shawn Carter — defended himself, saying that he hasn’t spoken about it because he’s still trying to figure out exactly what happened.

CAIRO (AP) — An ex-Egyptian army officer carried out the suicide bombing last month that unsuccessfully targeted the country’s interior minister, a video posted online Saturday by al-Qaida-inspired militants claims. The failed car bomb assassination and increasing attacks in the country’s lawless Sinai Peninsula raise fears of an escalating Islamic militant campaign of revenge over the July 3 military coup that ousted Egypt’s first democratically elected president and his Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Those worries saw soldiers escort teachers to class for the first day of school Saturday in the Sinai, as well as Christians cancel a planned festival in southern city of Luxor. Military officials reached by The Associated Press declined to comment about the video posted in the name of the Ansar Jerusalem militant group, which has carried out other attacks in the Sinai. The video posted on militant websites shows a man identified as Waleed Badr, who wears a uniform with a rank of a major. He says in the video that the Egyptian army is “bent on fighting religion” and “loves America” more than Egyptians.

WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) — Fire officials say a dog reaching for treats turned on a stove and started a fire causing smoke damage to an apartment in the central Washington city of Wenatchee. Wenatchee Fire Marshal Mark Yaple tells KPQ radio that it appears the black Labrador was reaching for a bag of dog food left on a stove top when it turned on the stove with its paw. Yaple says the residents were not at home when fire crews arrived. He says emergency crews were able to revive the dog with mouth-to-snout resuscitation. Damage was estimated at $10,000. Wenatchee, a city of more than 30,000, is about 130 miles from Seattle.

vacant homes and few prospects. Supporters predict the downtown improvements will expand the tax base and lay the path to a brighter financial future. They say the stakes extend beyond Detroit to the entire state. Without “vibrant central cities,” college-educated young people will continue to leave “and take the future Michigan economy with them,” said Lou Glazer, an economic expert and president of the nonpartisan research organization Michigan Future Inc. Tom Stephens, a lawyer who spoke against the hockey arena at a recent city council meeting, asked why elected officials would spend a huge sum to benefit the “multibillionaire owner of a sports franchise” at a time when the needs of average residents are unmet.

unproven projects, they insist, is like taking an unemployment check to a casino instead of paying for basic necessities. “Detroit is not going to be saved by an individual project with a bunch of money poured into it,” said businessman Jerry Belanger, a vocal critic of the arena project. “It’s not going to help Detroit schools, it’s not going to help rebuild buildings that are completely blighted.” The efforts are focused narrowly on a 10-squaremile district in and near downtown, which is home to corporations such as General Motors and draws suburban workers and visitors to sporting events, concerts and cultural institutions.

Our View •

U.S. economy needs comprehensive immigration reform Federal government ineptitude, such as the recent shutdown, is harming our economy. The shutdown has caused lengthy delays in arrival dates for international scientists, researchers, engineers, contractors and others who have jobs in the U.S. waiting for them. Their unique skills — some of which are in short supply here — help propel U.S. job growth. But the harm to our economy caused by shutdown-related visa delays pales in comparison to the overall shortage of visa allocations for the foreign-born workers our economy needs to remain globally competitive. Because of its universities, Indiana is a hub of innovation in science, technology, engineering and math. But many of the graduates of our universities are not allowed to remain here after graduation. In 2009, almost half of all our Because of its universi- state’s masters and doctoral degree were immigrants, including ties, Indiana is a hub of recipients over 63 percent of engineering PhDs. innovation in science, Current immigration policies force those to leave — taking their talent, technology, engineering graduates energy and innovation to other nations. and math.

Senate has passed immigraallowed to remain here tionThe legislation that includes border security upgrades and the expansion after graduation. of visa programs for seasonal workers and high-skilled college graduates. The Senate’s legislation also assures humane treatment for immigrant families, children and asylum seekers and creates a pathway to citizenship for undocumented workers. A report by Regional Economic Models, based in Massachusetts, estimates that a pathway to citizenship would generate more than 7,600 new jobs in Indiana and add $630 million to our state’s economic output by 2020. A policy change to allow more H-1B visas for high-skilled college graduates would add 3,200 jobs in Indiana in 2014 alone. The Rev. Yohannes Mengsteab, PhD., the director of ministry programs for The Lutheran Foundation, Fort Wayne, urged support for comprehensive immigration reform in a recent guest column in this newspaper. He wrote: “My immigration story began 30 years ago, fleeing political oppression … I know what it is like to leave everything … and how difficult it can be to overcome the many challenges immigrants face. I also know what it is like to succeed in this country … and become a productive, patriotic citizen of the United States.” We urge U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman to support comprehensive immigration reform which will benefit the citizens he represents in DeKalb, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben and Whitley counties, as well as parts of Allen and Elkhart counties. Stutzman has stated, “The best and brightest students from across the world come to American universities. These engineers and scientists go on to start great companies and create new jobs … We want these graduates creating jobs in America, not working for our competitors.” We urge Congress to work together in a bipartisan way to pass the comprehensive immigration reform we need to help grow innovation, create jobs and improve our global competitiveness.

Letters • Inmate’s attendance at funeral caused unnecessary pain To the editor: As a resident of Noble County as well as a member of the law enforcement community I was outraged when I read the article “Prisoner Granted Trip” (Oct. 22). It is obvious that KPC Media Group has no respect for the safety or well being of law enforcement and the community. The death of a loved one is a very emotional time. With the help of the article, the family was made very aware that inmate Miller would be transported to the funeral home. This information was published on your website very early in the morning giving anyone enough time to plan an escape or ambush. Fortunately no one was injured or killed as a result of this story. Many think that nothing like that can happen in small town Noble County. Well guess what, we have murderers, rapist, child molesters and every other type of criminal in small town Noble County. Inmate Miller is currently being charged with operating a vehicle after a lifetime suspension. This happens only where there is repeated driving while suspended violations, operating while intoxicated violations, or other major driving offenses. What this means is that inmate Miller has repeatedly broken the law. He even failed to show up for his scheduled court hearing. For this Judge Laur rewarded him for his behavior. His bond was lowered, when he could not afford that it was ordered that he be transported to the hospital to see his son, then it was ordered that he be transported to the funeral home. What happened to being punished for doing wrong? When people make mistakes there should be consequences. Are the judges going to start ordering funeral transports for everyone in jail? When that happens who is going to pay the bill for it? The taxpayers of Noble County will. All of you responsible for this article got lucky this time that no one involved got hurt or killed, but it can and will happen if the lack of respect for our law enforcement continues. When it does I feel all that are responsible for letting the information out should personally have to go to each and every family member of the fallen officer and look them straight in the eye and tell them “this was my fault and this did not have to happen.” Maybe then you will truly see and feel the unnecessary pain and anguish you caused the family.

Politics creates obstacles for Hoosier health As the focus turns from the manufactured shutdown/default crisis in Congress to the disastrous rollout of Obamacare, there is one thing Hoosiers should focus on. Indiana is not a healthy state. Indiana ranked 41st in total health, according to American’s Health Rankings. It was ranked 37th in 2011. In 2000, Indiana’s obesity rate was 19.9 percent ranking 42nd in the U.S. In 2012 it was 30.1 percent. Our smoking rate has gone down from 27 percent in 2000, to 21.2 percent last year, or 1.5 million smokers, but that is still high enough to rank us 44th. In 2001, our diabetes rate was 6 percent. Now it’s 9.8 percent, ranking Indiana 33rd. We rank 38th in cardiac heart disease. Indiana is 49th in air pollution at 13.1 micrograms of fine particles per cubic meter. In the past decade, the percentage of children in poverty more than doubled from 10.8 percent to 23.6 percent of persons under age 18. Some 13.5 percent of our households are “food insecure” according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In the past year, the number of infectious disease cases rose from 7.8 to 11.7 cases per 100,000 population. I’ve reported this before, but once again, 2.7 million Hoosiers (out of a 6.5 million population) walked into an hospital emergency room last year and consumers ultimately pick up those costs. Thirty Indiana counties have no obstetrics services. Because of this lack of pre- and post-natal care, Indiana’s infant mortality rate is a stunning 7.7 per 1,000 babies, a full percentage above the national average. From 2006 to 2010 according to the Indiana Department of Health, 4,115 Hoosiers

died by suicide. Indiana State Police busted a record 1,726 meth labs in 2012, up from 1,437 in 2011. And we have a prescription drug overdose “epidemic,” according to Attorney General Greg Zoeller. So this resistance to “Obamacare” is baffling in a public health sense. Politically, it has drawn HOWEY the most vociferous POLITICAL opposition since REPORT the Vietnam War. But from a policy standpoint, at it is trying to Brian Howey least address an overall situation that should induce a “crisis” atmosphere from our public servants. Unfortunately, many of our “public servants” from Gov. Mike Pence, to the Congressional delegation, to the Indiana General Assembly are more concerned about low taxes and the business climate. State Rep. Ed Clere, the New Albany Republican who heads the House Public Health Committee, was quoted in the Anderson Herald-Bulletin during an health town hall meeting this past week as saying, “It’s my party that needs to be convinced, to put it bluntly,” on extending Medicaid coverage to an estimated 300,000 to 400,000 Hoosiers who will lack coverage. The political obstacle is a hatred and loathing for President Obama. But it is coming at the expense of making wise policy decisions that can impact this crisis.

I’ll give you a prime example, and that is Pence’s decision to have Indiana opt into the federal health exchange, as opposed to creating one of our own. It was an interesting choice, given that Pence and many other Republicans view the federal government as inefficient at just about everything it touches. Kentucky opted for its own state-run exchange, one of 17 states to do so. The Lexington HeraldLeader reported last week that Kentucky’s state-run implementation of health care reform — Kynect — has enrolled 15,000, while 272,339 people had visited the site. Kentucky had an uninsured population of 640,000. Like Indiana, Kentucky is a so-called “red state” with a voracious opposition to Obamacare. Gov. Steve Beshear — a Democrat — has taken a lot of arrows over the exchange. “It’s amazing to me that the folks who are challenging that are folks that usually think we don’t want the federal government in here,” he told WHAS-TV. “We would rather handle our own affairs.” Sen. Joe Donnelly, who has won a Congressional district and U.S. Senate race since he voted for the Affordable Care Act in 2010, told me, “We have over 900,000 uninsured Hoosiers. We have between 300,000 and some say closer to 400,000 who are in that gap that Indiana has no plan for at all right now. This is not meant disrespectfully, but government officials here have said, ‘Well, they can go to the emergency room.’ Well, that’s not much of a health program.” Donnelly also believes that Hoosiers are not being well-served when Indiana opted not to run

“We always talk about Hoosier common sense,” Donnelly said. “If Indiana folks had designed their own exchange … the Indiana exchange would have been the best in the country. I wish we had had that chance.”

• its own health exchange. Pew Research reported that in the 27 states with federally-run programs — including Indiana — 59 percent are aware of the exchange, compared to 72 percent in states with their own exchanges. “We always talk about Hoosier common sense and Hoosier hard work, and Hoosier exceptionalism,” Donnelly said. “If Indiana folks had designed their own exchange I personally think the Indiana exchange would have been the best in the country. I wish we had had that chance.” At a time when our governor should be having an established dialogue with Hoosiers over the health crisis he rules over, there is silence, and an emphasis on business. “For Indiana, our fiscal integrity is the foundation of our prosperity,” Pence told me last summer when I brought up the health challenges we face.

The sense of some words is not so common Words have power, considering the five hardest to say are “I love you” and “I’m sorry.” Sad, but true. My friends and I recently discussed just how much power words have in our weekly prayer group. Words can’t be returned to sender once that slip off the tongue. Words said in anger, joy, frustration, joking, seriousness, pain. But words can also change minds, share thoughts, inform, irritate, console, cause laughter. Every 98 minutes, a new English word is born, meaning more than 1 million exist. Some words are more fun to say than others. Merriam-Webster said a few of the favorites noted by readers are persnickety,

discombobulate and serendipity. May I suggest rutabaga, vociferous and jiggle? As far as least liked words go, The New Yorker considered slacks to be the worst English word. Some other JENNIFER disliked words chosen by readers moist, DECKER include irregardless, like, bling, swap, epic, awesome, actually and impacted. I’m adding phlegm, won ton, puke and euthanize. Despite so many words, it’s difficult to teach English to a

non-native speaker. I used to mentor a Guatemalan woman. We were focusing on plural English words. It was hard to convey that a word like children is already plural. She kept making it childrens, which is technically correct, but not in the eyes of the English inventors. Regionally, some words are used differently. A carbonated beverage is called either pop or a soda. A noon-time meal is lunch or dinner and an evening meal is supper or dinner. Then there’s y’all; bubbler, a water fountain in Wisconsin; gum band, a rubber band in Pennsylvania; devil’s strip, the strip of land between a sidewalk and street in Ohio; teedle board, a teeter totter in Massachusetts; tag sale, a garage

It’s time to turn off the blowhards At a recent news conference, President Obama reflected on what caused the 16-day government shutdown, and how another crisis can be avoided in the future. “How business is done in this town has to change,” he lectured. “All of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists and the bloggers and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit COKIE ROBERTS from conflict.” Those STEVEN ROBERTS “bloggers” and “talking heads” have every right to say anything they want, of course. The real problem is the people who listen to them. The rest of us have every right — even an obligation — to turn them off. There are many reasons behind the hard-eyed hostility that led to the shutdown, but how voters get information about politics plays a major role. One of the great ironies of the digital age is that the same devices we can use to broaden our world can also be used to narrow it. All it takes is a few keystrokes to create echo chambers of information, to flood our screens and ear buds with opinions that reinforce our prejudices and exclude dissent. Nine years ago, law professor Cass Sunstein presciently warned on NPR that “the greatest danger of the echo chambers is unjustified extremism.” Sunstein, who later worked for the Obama administration, argued that “if you get a group of people who tend to think something, after they talk to each other, they end up thinking a more extreme version of what they thought before.” The power of these “echo chambers” to produce “unjustified extremism” was graphically on display during last year’s election. Goaded by hardline “bloggers” and “talking heads,” Mitt Romney moved sharply to the right on immigration and advocated “self-deportation,” perhaps the single worst mistake he made during a fumble-filled campaign. On election night, Romney still thought he would win, even though his pollsters had told him two weeks before that he was toast. The conservative echo chamber was predicting victory, and he chose to believe them instead of the professionals he was paying to provide the facts. The same capacity for denial and self-delusion is playing out again in the aftermath of the government shutdown. Even though polls show the popularity of the Republican Party plunging to new depths, the influential conservative blogger Erick Erickson hails the emergence of “a fundamentally altered party of new faces fueled by a grass-roots movement now able to connect with each other.”

What Others Say • One agency down, one to go for Illiana The vote on the Illiana Expressway by the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning’s policy committee shows CMAP can look beyond Chicago interests and examine what’s in the best interest of the entire metropolitan area. The CMAP vote, 11 to 8, means the Illiana Expressway could eventually receive federal approval. The committee’s vote overrules the full CMAP board and means the Illiana will be included in the agency’s long-range plan. That crucial vote also means the ball is now in the Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission’s court. Before NIRPC votes, however, there are additional hoops the plan must go through. There are four meetings on the proposed road next month before NIRPC’s Transportation Policy Committee and the full board are scheduled to take separate votes in December. There are many details to be worked out yet, and CMAP’s vote lets the process of figuring out those details go forward. The Illiana Expressway would connect Interstate 65 just north of Lowell with I-55 near Wilmington, Ill. It would siphon truck traffic off U.S. 30, the Borman Expressway and other nearby roads. The new expressway would be built as a toll road, financed through a public-private partnership. The details of that arrangement need to be worked out. Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn and their transportation departments want the road built. So did architect and urban planner Daniels Burnham, who included it in his iconic Plan of Chicago more than a century ago. The expressway is controversial, to say the least. An overflow crowd attended the CMAP meeting, with speakers voicing support or opposition to the plan. There are vocal elements in Northwest Indiana as well. But look not just at what it might do to someone’s backyard but also what it would do to the region as a whole. Illinois Transportation Secretary Ann Schneider told The Associated Press the tollway could generate an estimated 9,000 construction jobs and could attract intermodal shipping facilities that would generate additional jobs. The benefits would extend along the entire route, in both Illinois and Indiana. There are public meetings set up, so attend and speak your mind. As you do so, understand the importance of approving the Illiana Expressway so the process of building this necessary road can go forward. The Times, Munster

Don’t remove limits on campaign donations Politics in America shouldn’t be about money. It should be about ideas. About public policy. About who best conveys the will of the people. But big money has gained an increasing foothold in elections for senators, members of Congress and other high offices. The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in the 2010 Citizens United case opened the floodgates for super PACs, and now the Supreme Court is considering another decision that could be the second blow in a one-two punch to the gut of those who want to limit the influence of big money. The court is hearing arguments in McCutcheon vs. the Federal Election Commission, and the justices seem to be leaning toward removing limits on individual campaign donations. These limits have been in force since the 1970s, when they were implemented to discourage political corruption in the aftermath of Watergate. As it stands, an individual can give as much as $2,600 to each campaign for a limited number of congressional candidates during a two-year election cycle. A Supreme Court decision to overturn this limit could basically remove any cap on such giving. If that happens, one billionaire could basically finance the entire campaign of a candidate. It’s dangerous when members of Congress are beholden to only a few people rather than the will of the general public. A group of Democratic congressmen, led by Maryland’s John Sarbanes, has introduced a different concept that would reward candidates for seeking small donations from the multitudes. The Grassroots Democracy Act, introduced this year in the House, would match every individual campaign donation of $100 or less, with public funds, dollar for dollar. The act would also give each voter a $50 tax credit to be used for donations to campaigns of candidates of the voter’s choice. This sort of campaign finance reform would help put the power back in the hands of the people. What the Supreme Court is considering … well, that would invite another age of Nixon-esque corruption.

• He’s forgetting one thing. A “fundamentally altered party” that demands orthodoxy and purges heretics cannot possibly win national elections. The new media landscape was thoughtfully explored by David Carr, the media columnist of The New York Times, who wrote: “The polarized political map is now accompanied by a media ecosystem that is equally gerrymandered into districts of self-reinforcing discourse.” That gerrymandering of the information map is encouraged by consumers. As Carr notes, “Cable blowhardism would not be such a good business if there hadn’t been a kind of personal redistricting of news coverage by the citizenry.” He cites a Pew poll showing that 75 percent of Sean Hannity’s viewers on Fox identify as conservatives. Over on MSNBC, Rachel Maddow’s audience is 71 percent liberal. (The liberal echo chamber is not as loud as the conservative version, but it could become a thorny problem for Obama if and when he tries to trim entitlement costs.) Fox News analyst Brit Hume recently pointed out that bloggers like Erickson and talk show hosts like Hannity “have real influence … particularly in very conservative areas where they are most popular.” As a result, even GOP lawmakers who thought shutting down the government was a “suicide mission” kept silent. “You don’t want the tea party and you don’t want the conservative radio talk show hosts on your back,” Hume said. The answer to this “blowhardism” has to come from the voters. And they can start by realizing a key point made by Obama. The Hannitys and Ericksons of the world are indeed “professional activists who profit from conflict.” They are not interested in informing citizens and improving government. They are interested in fomenting fear and stoking anger. Angry people boost ratings, appeal to advertisers, and raise the profiles and incomes of the blowhards. “More often than not,” says Carr, “when we tune in to cable or fire up the Web, we are staring into the mirror, not looking out a window.” It’s time to throw open that window, stick our heads out, and listen to voices that challenge our worldview.

TEACHERS: Seniority raises no longer part of teacher contracts FROM PAGE A1


Ghosts and goblins populate the front yard and porch of the “Halloween House” in Waterloo.

HOUSE: Iddings says local children will stop by and help decorate FROM PAGE A1

a month, until she’s out of time and forced to dress for her — big surprise — favorite holiday, Halloween. But while the trick-ortreaters may come only on Oct. 31, Iddings’ home is an attraction for the community all month long. She said neighbor children will stop by and ask to help with her display, which she kindly allows. Iddings said she gladly accepts the help, because it gives the children ownership in the community attraction, and also because it helps her finish quicker. “Most people you talk

to will say, ‘I live by the Halloween house,’ or ‘Do you know where the Halloween house is?’” Iddings said. “One lady would come from Chicago to bring her mother to see the house. There are kids who lived here who now bring their own kids from Ohio. I meet kids and they’ll say, ‘You live in the Halloween house.’ They’ll ask if my house is really haunted.” Iddings has no idea how many pieces of Halloween material she has — hundreds upon hundreds, no doubt. She collects year-round, often

raiding Halloween stores or superstores after the season for masks that “really look real.” Iddings keeps the massive collection stored in a barn on the family’s property north of town, hauled to and from by her husband as he fulfills his lone duty for the event. The stash used to be stored in the home’s basement, Iddings said, but the creatures stuffed in the rafters would terrify her three children. Those children now are grown, and their children help Iddings with the decorating, she said. It’s a true family affair.

It’s also an affair that grows upon itself, and Iddings is challenged to top it annually. As she looked out over the yard and at the new hearse, she pondered if an antique electric chair exhibit or a patient in a straight jacket might come to be next year. “Every year I try to do something different and keep it a little new, so the kids don’t get too used to it,” she said. “Everybody asks, how are you going to top that next year?” Odds are, she will. And she’ll enjoy the challenge.

SERVICE: Offenders may return to jail if their service is not completed FROM PAGE A1

program is administered through Community Corrections programs. In Noble and LaGrange counties, probation departments are responsible for making sure the work is completed. Steuben County operates the most active program in terms of hours of volunteer service. In 2012, Steuben’s program had 22,000 hours of community service performed, Steuben County Community Corrections executive director Brett Hays said. LaGrange County has mustered 6,017 hours through the first three quarters of this year, according to figures provided by Brown. DeKalb County Community Corrections executive director Kellie Knauer said community service workers in her program logged a total of 7,973.5 hours during the last fiscal year, July 1, 2012, through June 30, 2013. Beam said each of Noble County’s 15 probation officers is responsible for monitoring the community service of their offenders, and cumulative numbers haven’t been gathered since 2002, when 10,337 hours were logged. Brown said a majority of probationary sentences in his county include some sort of community service aspect. “They’re paying something back to society,” Brown said. Offenders placed on the Community Corrections program are required to do a half-hour of community of service for every day they are sentenced to the program, Knauer said. For example, a person sentenced to a 90-day term would be required to perform 45 hours of community service. The same is true in Steuben County’s Community Corrections program. If a person in either county is on Community Corrections and does not have a job, he or she is required to perform 20 hours of community service a week. “That’s a big motivator for them to get a job,” Hays said. All of the counties have restrictions on what types of organizations are available for community service hours. The locations must be nonprofits, and doing service work for groups that sell alcohol is forbidden. All of the counties are fairly flexible when it comes to allowing people to choose from established lists where their community service hours are done. Offenders not on pace to complete community service before the terms of their sentences are complete may be assigned to tasks. “We stay on them to make sure they do it on a consistent basis,” Beam said. People who don’t complete court-ordered community service could be sent back to jail for violating the terms of probation. In LaGrange County, a person who is sentenced to 50 hours of community service, an average amount, but does only 10 hours of service would be sentenced to jail at the rate of one day in jail for every hour short on service. All four counties do checks to verify people actually are doing the community service, requiring signatures from representatives at the nonprofits. Beam said there have been only a couple of instances over the years in which a person has forged the signature of such a representative without actually putting in the time. In those instances, people originally sentenced for a misdemeanor offense have been charged with forgery, a Class D felony. Care is also given that people are matched with jobs they are physically able to perform, area coordinators said. “Our job is to place them where they fit best,” said Mary Ann Paugh, the lead LaGrange County Superior Court probation officer.

Community service not emphasized in DeKalb BY MATT GETTS

AUBURN — The numbers of people routinely sentenced to perform some type of community service vary from county to county. As of this week, Steuben County had 165 offenders assigned some sort of community service time, said Brett Hays, executive director of that county’s Community Corrections program. The numbers in Noble County are in the “couple of hundreds,” said Stacey Beam, the chief probation officer in Noble County. LaGrange County Superior Court Judge George Brown said in LaGrange County that 39 of 45 recent misdemeanor sentences include some sort of community service. Those kinds of numbers are in stark contrast to what has been happening in DeKalb County. Prosecuting Attorney ClaraMary Winebrenner said she could not remember the last person who was sentenced to community service as a part of their probation. As of last week, DeKalb County had 47 people performing community service as either part of the Community Corrections program or as a term of probation, according to Kellie Knauer, executive director of DeKalb County Community Corrections. Every person sentenced into the Community Corrections program is required to perform community service. Offenders can also be sentenced to perform community service as a part of the terms of probation. It’s those probation-only sentences that aren’t seeing much of a component of community service. “Obviously, we don’t use community service as much as the other counties at this time,” Winebrenner said. “We use different sentencing options.” As court-sanctioned punishment, offenders can be sentenced to jail time, probation, to pay fines, be placed on Community Corrections or ordered to do community service. Winebrenner said she considered community service to be the least punitive of those options. “It’s criminal sanction ‘lite,’”

she said. Another factor is that scheduling community service potentially could conflict with offenders holding down full-time jobs, Winebrenner said. It’s better for an offender to be employed than to have to do community service, she said. The lack of much community service being ordered in DeKalb County may be due to the habits of the court, Winebrenner said. A misunderstanding may be part of the issue as well. Winebrenner said it was her understanding that Knauer did not feel community service was a good use of her program’s time. “It’s a lot more work to do it,” Winebrenner said. “There’s nothing to show that it helps with rehabilitation.” Knauer agreed there is no evidence to suggest that performing community service is a deterrent to people committing new crimes, but said that doesn’t mean it’s not worthwhile. “It has a really positive benefit to the community,” Knauer said. “It’s difficult to organize, but it’s well worth the effort.” Knauer came to DeKalb County to administer its Community Corrections program three years ago. Coming from Steuben County, she expected more community service to be ordered than turned out to be the case. She said that might change in the future. “Back in 2010, I anticipated having more community service hours available than were being ordered,” she said. “Our program is still young, and we are growing and evaluating programs. In July of 2013, community stakeholders, including members of the advisory board, saw the need to utilize local community service opportunities more. Probation officers are making more recommendations that include community service, and local judges are ordering community service hours as they deem appropriate. I anticipate that Community Corrections will start to see an increase in ordered community service hours as cases start to move through the court system.”

to the school or corporation. An “effective” rating means the teacher consistently meets those expectations. An “improvement necessary” rating means there is room for growth in those areas. A teacher receiving an “ineffective” rating consistently fails to meet expectations. Prairie Heights school corporation also uses RISE to evaluate its teachers, superintendent Alan Middleton said. The East Noble school corporation uses RISE with a few revisions, said Superintendent Ann Linson. “In addition, we added indicators to include the integration of technology into the classroom. Teachers are to be observed at least three times per year, which also includes receiving feedback from the administrators. In addition, a final meeting will be held with the teacher to review the final evaluation that will provide the designation of ineffective, needs improvement, effective or highly effective,” said Linson. “The rubric that we are using is not required and is not officially ‘endorsed’ by the IDOE. However, we believe it is a very good tool and provides excellent guidance for teachers,” Linson said. “Our final evaluations for the 2012-13 school year are incomplete, because the Department of Education has not finalized growth model data results for grades 4-8 and school and district letter grades,” Grate said. However, Grate added, the primary component of the teacher evaluation is the teacher effectiveness rubric, which accounts for 75 percent of a teacher’s evaluation. DeKalb Educators Association president Ryan Lengacher said evaluation tools previously were negotiated as part of a teacher contract. The new law says the evaluation tool cannot be negotiated and is determined by each school district’s administration. Every school district’s evaluation tool must be approved by the state, Lengacher added. The DeKalb Central school district has adopted the state’s RISE model with some modifications, Lengacher said. While the law did not allow the evaluation tool to be negotiated, the district’s administration asked for teacher input, Lengacher added. “Most schools have something similar to RISE,” Lengacher said. Because of the new laws, teacher contracts no longer include annual increment raises for advancing one year in seniority. “The teachers work with the administration to develop a compensation model,” Grate explained. Compensation models are submitted to the state and reviewed to ensure compliance with the new laws, she added. Each district’s compensation model determines how much money is allocated to raises, salaries and benefits. The East Noble school school district will use money from a Performance Grant of $287,136 it received about 18 months ago to pay for increases in base pay this year. Linson said the past two years, the state budgeted competitive grant funds for school districts to reward teacher performance. “Our grant was written such that the funds would be used for teacher performance from the 2012-2013 school year,” Linson said. At a school board meeting Wednesday, Linson pointed out that under the old system, teachers would have received a negotiated percentage pay increase and the increment increase. The pay raise this time is only about the same as the increment raise. Under DeKalb Central’s new contract, teachers with at least 18 years of experience received raises of less than 2 percent, which was less than everyone else, Lengacher noted when the contract was ratified. “We should reward our

How teachers will be paid DEKALB CENTRAL $230,000 will be divided among teachers for pay increases. Teachers could earn a total of 11 units — seven units for being rated “highly effective” or “effective,” three units for an additional year of experience and one unit for a rating of “highly effective.” Teachers rated as effective will receive about $1,240 in pay raises, and those with highly effective ratings will receive about $1,355, according to the district’s chief financial officer, Lance Brauchla.

WEST NOBLE Teachers rated as effective will receive $700 increases and highly effective teachers will receive $900, according to the district’s new contract. Seventy-eight percent of the teachers were rated effective, while 10 percent received a highly effective rating. Three percent were rated as “in need of improvement.” No teachers were rated as “ineffective.”

EAST NOBLE Teachers rated “effective” earned three units and those who are “highly effective” earned four units. Corresponding amounts were added to their base pay. Ninety-nine percent of East Noble teachers were rated as “highly effective” and “effective” and will receive the pay raises. Units earned in other areas will be paid as stipends. One unit had a value of $256.30. Teachers also received one unit for perfect attendance and one unit for missing no more than five sick or personal days. They earned one unit for leadership demonstrated in a variety of unpaid roles and one unit for professional growth.

PRAIRIE HEIGHTS Teachers evaluated as “effective” or “highly effective” will receive an additional $750 for performance. The contract also includes an attendance incentive of up to $825 per teacher.

LAKELAND A point system has been established with a pool of $90,000 available for the 2013-14 school year. Teachers who are rated as “effective” will receive four points. “Highly effective” teachers will receive five points. Teachers who complete a year of service will receive one point. Half of the money awarded for those points will be added to the teacher’s base salary, and the other half will be paid as a stipend. Teachers who successfully complete three hours of graduate credit in the year of the evaluation will receive one point as a stipend. Teachers also may receive one point as a stipend for demonstrating leadership in specified categories. Teachers can receive a maximum of eight points — up to three on base salary and up to five as stipends.

most experienced teachers with a salary increase that at least matches all other employees in the district,” he said. Lengacher said looking at what the state wanted to achieve with the new laws, he can see the philosophy of having good teachers and rewarding them well. “Unfortunately, what has happened is that teachers in Indiana have felt like they’ve gotten blamed for everything wrong with education,” he said. “They don’t feel like they are compensated like they used to be. The aim that the state legislature had and goals they had in mind are not necessarily being fulfilled.”




Report says Iran hangs ‘rebels’


In this July 25, 1960, file photo , then-Sen. John F. Kennedy, D-Mass., sits with wife, Jacqueline, as she reads to their daughter, Caroline, at Hyannis Port, Mass.

JFK image shines half-century later BOSTON (AP) — Four days a week, David O’Donnell leads a 90-minute “Kennedy Tour” around Boston that features stops at government buildings, museums, hotels and meeting halls. Tour-goers from throughout the United States and abroad, who may see John F. Kennedy as inspiration, martyr or Cold War hero, hear stories of his ancestors and early campaigns, the rise of the Irish in state politics, the odd fact that Kennedy was the only president outlived by his grandmother. Yet at some point along the tour, inevitably, questions from the crowd shift from politics to gossip. “Someone will ask, ‘Did Jack Kennedy have an affair with Marilyn Monroe?’ With this woman? That woman?” explains O’Donnell, who has worked for a decade in the city’s visitors bureau. Those asking forgive the infidelities as reflecting another era, he says. “It’s something people, in an odd way, just accept.” The Kennedy image, the “mystique” that attracts tourists and historians alike, did not begin with his presidency and is in no danger of ending 50 years after his death. Its journey has been uneven but resilient — a young and still-evolving politician whose name was sanctified by his assassination, upended by discoveries of womanizing, hidden health problems and political intrigue, and forgiven in numerous polls that place JFK among the most beloved of former presidents. The last half century has demonstrated the transcendence of Kennedy’s appeal. It’s as if we needed to learn the worst before returning to the qualities that defined Kennedy at his best — the smile and the wavy hair, the energy and the confidence, the rhetoric and the promise. “He had a gift for rallying the country to its best, most humane and idealistic impulses,” says Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Robert Caro, who cites such Kennedy achievements as the Peace Corps, the nuclear test ban treaty and the peaceful resolution of the Cuban Missile Crisis. “He’s become more and more of an iconic figure as the years have passed,” says presidential biographer Robert Dallek, whose “Camelot’s Court” is one of many Kennedy books out this fall. “I think it’s partly, of course, because of the assassination. But that doesn’t really account for why he has this phenomenal hold on the public.” President William McKinley, he noted, was assassinated in 1901, “but 50 years after his death hardly anyone remembered who he was.” Boston is the official

• home for Kennedy memories, starting at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum and echoing at landmarks throughout the area — the small, shingled house in Brookline where he was born and the Kennedy park in Cambridge that extends along the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, the statue on the grounds of the Massachusetts State House and the corner table at the nearby Omni Parker House Hotel, where Kennedy proposed to Jacqueline Bouvier. But thousands of Kennedy buildings, busts and plaques can be found around the country, from the grandeur of Washington’s Kennedy Center to the scale of New York City’s JFK Airport to the oddity of a Kennedy golf course in Aurora, Colo. (He publicly avoided predecessor Dwight Eisenhower’s beloved leisure sport but actually played it well). “He stands out among all the modern presidents,” says historian Larry J. Sabato, whose book, “The Kennedy Half Century,” has just been published. “Franklin Roosevelt was more consequential, and Harry Truman may have been, too. But Kennedy overshadows them all. He’s the one president from the post-World War II era who could appear on the streets now and fit right in.” Kennedy, born in 1917, was the second son, and one of nine children, of business tycoon Joseph P. Kennedy. No self-made man put greater pressure on his children than did the elder Kennedy. When first son Joseph Jr. was killed during World War II, Jack became the designated heir. Himself a Navy veteran and survivor of a collision with a Japanese destroyer, he would write to his friend Paul Fay that, once the war was over, “I’ll be back here with Dad trying to parlay a lost PT boat and a bad back into a political advantage.” Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946, at age 29, was a senator by age 35 and was soon mentioned as a candidate for national office. “From the time Jack first ran for Congress, his father had taught him everything from wearing a suit and the best way to cut his hair, how to appear youthful and wise and serious at the same time,” says David Nasaw, whose biography of Joseph P. Kennedy came out last year.

hangings. It did not mention a trial, suggesting the prisoners may already have been convicted and sentenced to death, and their executions moved up after the ambush. The state news agency IRNA had earlier described the attackers as “bandits,” and said authorities were investigating whether the attackers were drug

smugglers or an armed opposition group. An Iran official meanwhile said that authorities would probe claims by the daughter of detained opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi that she was bitten and hit by a female guard during an argument that broke out after she was allowed to visit her parents.

NBA looks heavy at the top MIAMI (AP) — The NBA this season figures to be especially crowded at the top, with a number of teams in the championship mix. There will be an even bigger crowd at the bottom of the league. Even in an era where salary caps and luxury taxes are helping small-market teams, the divide between the haves and the have-nots in the NBA seems particularly copious this season. Few would argue that Miami, Chicago, Brooklyn, Indiana, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Houston, Memphis and the Los Angeles Clippers are all legitimate contenders to finish this season hoisting the trophy named for Larry O’Brien next June. And cases could also be made that just about every other club

might have a chance to draft Andrew Wiggins a few days later. “It’s the first time I’ve ever been in the league, 14 years, where if you fast-forwarded to July and said one of nine teams won the championship, I wouldn’t be surprised,” Memphis guard Mike Miller said. “That doesn’t happen very often. That’s what makes the league exciting this year. Obviously, the favorite is Miami. But if you did fast-forward it, barring injuries or anything like that, there’s eight or nine teams that have a chance.” As for everyone else, the future might not necessarily be now. Philadelphia, Orlando, Boston, Charlotte, Phoenix, Utah and Sacramento look to

be in rebuilding modes, mostly around young cores with plenty of potential. The New York Knicks look like a playoff team, though perhaps a step below the clear top four in the East. So that would figure to leave Milwaukee, Atlanta, Cleveland, Detroit, Toronto and Washington as the six most logical candidates for the final three East playoff spots. “We’re going to win championships here,” Raptors CEO Tim Leiweke said. Maybe. But when? That’s the question everybody’s dealing with in this loaded-at-the-top NBA. But it takes the right combination of spending and savvy to get it done. “To me we have a league where management is what is going to win and going to do

well in business,” NBA Commissioner David Stern said. “And I’m very proud of that situation.” The West is ridiculously top-heavy. There’s the five teams just about everyone is talking about, plus Golden State — meaning at minimum, two teams that would seem good enough to win the conference won’t even have home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. That leaves six teams — the Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas, New Orleans, Denver, Minnesota and Portland — likely to vie for the final two West playoff slots. And while injured Lakers star Kobe Bryant is scoffing at notions suggesting his team can’t contend, others in the purple and gold don’t seem to mind being off the radar screens right now.

Running to state BY KEN FILLMORE

FORT WAYNE — Four area cross country runners did well enough in Saturday’s New Haven Semistate to earn berths into next weekend’s Indiana High School Athletic Association State Finals in Terre Haute. Three harriers will make return trips in Fremont senior Abby Hostetler, DeKalb junior Mark Beckmann and West Noble junior Brandon Arnold.

A newcomer will join them in Prairie Heights junior Aspen Dirr, who placed 18th and was the second to last girl from a non-state qualifying team to make the state field. The top ten individuals from non-qualifying state teams also earned state finals bids. Hostetler and Beckmann both placed third. Hostetler was third in the girls’ race in a 5-kilometer time of 18 minutes, 20:25 seconds. Beckmann was third in

the boys’ race in 15:56.73. Arnold was the eighth boy to finish, reaching the line in 16:08.74. Dirr finished in a school-record time of 19:21.51. Dirr set a new school record for the fourth time this season. She is the first Prairie Heights female cross country runner to qualify for state in roughly 30 years. Connie Everidge achieved the feat sometime in the early 1980s. SEE CROSS COUNTRY PAGE B4

FORT WAYNE — The DeKalb volleyball team threw a surprise wrinkle into what expected to be an easy coronation for Carroll in Saturday night’s Class 4A Sectional 5 championship match. The Barons took the first set and put the four-time defending champs on its heels. But the Chargers regrouped to win a competitive second set and then overpowered DeKalb in the third and fourth sets to claim the sectional crown, 3-1 (21-25, 25-20, 25-18, 25-11). “That’s a good Carroll team and we did come out ready to play,” said DeKalb coach Andrea Spiess. “That just speaks volumes for our program, the fact that we did step up and play at a sectional championship level.” DeKalb (20-10) used aggressive serving and successfully set up a number of double blocks to keep Carroll’s big guns — led by University of Illinois commit Jacqueline Quade — from hurting the Barons as they got their hands on a high number of Charger kill attempts. The first set was tied nine times, the last at 19-19 before back-to-back kills by Maddy Fifer and Skyler Ostrowski gave DeKalb a 21-19 lead. The Barons would score the last four points of the set, the last three coming on an ace by Katie Moreland, a Hannah Lewis block and a back-row kill from Lexi Hooks, to win 25-21. SEE BARONS, PAGE B3

Westview tops Central Noble for sectional title BY KEN FILLMORE

ALBION — Westview’s volleyball team shook off losing its first game of the day Saturday to repeat as sectional champions in the Class 2A tournament hosted at Central Noble. The Warriors defeated Bremen 19-25, 25-23, 25-11, 25-16 in the semifinals, then handled the host Cougars 25-14, 25-16, 25-11 in the final Saturday evening. Westview (23-8) won the program’s fifth sectional title and will host a 2A regional match against Woodlan Tuesday at 7 p.m. Woodlan won its own sectional, breezing past South Adams in Saturday night’s final 25-10, 25-12, 25-5. Westview coach Heidi Brohm is excited about having the home-court advantage in front of an active faithful in the Warrior Dome to help her team try to get the program’s second regional title ever and the first since 1999. “The block party has done such a good job, so we’re looking forward to that,” Brohm said. “We carried a lot of students to our regional match at Adams Central last year.” The Northeast Corner Confer-

ence regular season co-champion Warriors have an imposing front line of senior Breann Bushong and sophomores Grace Hales and Maria McCoy along with solid

all-around senior Rachel Johns. But Bremen caught Westview early. “Bremen scouted us and took advantage of our weaknesses a

little bit,” Brohm said. “Bremen came to play. 13 (sophomore Chelsea Huppert) and 11 (senior Cassie Sears) on the outside really came to play. 11 played at a level she did not play at on Thursday against LaVille. Their passing was on. “Our girls did a good job of staying composed. We fought through things and pushed harder.” Westview was more familiar with Central Noble and once again proved to be further along in the third match with the Cougars this fall. CN won its 15th match of season in the afternoon semifinal as it topped Fremont 25-14, 25-27, 25-16, 25-20. “Our communication level was high,” first-year Cougar coach Dustin Warrix said. “We wanted to manipulate the ball, make them move their feet with our passing.” Westview was a different animal compared to a rebuilding Fremont team that made strides with 11 victories this fall. “We had to play the perfect game to make things work,” Warrix said. Brohm thought her team took care of business pretty well. SEE WARRIORS, PAGE B3




Some NFL injuries more impactful than others


Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne (87) talks to trainers after he injured his knee during the second half of an NFL football game against the Denver Broncos in Indianapolis.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The rash of injuries to high-profile players overshadowed last weekend’s NFL action. To see Reggie Wayne tearfully coming to grips with a torn knee ligament that ended his season was sad for more than just Colts fans. Wayne is among the most respected players in the sport. Knowing that Brian Cushing, the heart of the Houston defense, was gone for the second straight year with a knee injury was hard to fathom. Nobody plays harder or with more vigor. And Sam Bradford, finally beginning to look as though he could become a franchise quarterback, having his season end with a torn ACL was gut-wrenching. “It’s the luck of the draw if you get hurt badly,” says Bill Polian, who built the Bills and Colts into Super Bowl teams. “All during our time with the Colts and Bills

we did extensive studies. “You study injuries over a long period of time, you find the process is always the same: Injuries ramp up until Week 9 or Week 10 and tend to level off. Why? I don’t know. It’s the history of it.” It’s also something teams must prepare for, and not only on the field. Yes, it’s crucial to build depth, although that’s becoming near impossible at some positions, notably quarterback, where the drop-off from starter to backup is often immeasurable. It’s also important to build in safeguards under the salary cap to account for injuries. Of course, when there is an epidemic at a specific position, even that extra spending room doesn’t help much. “You find it very difficult and rare, maybe once every four or five years, that you get a complete 53-man team,” says Polian, who would set aside from $3

million to $5 million under the cap while with the Colts to account for injuries. “It’s almost impossible to do on an ongoing basis. “Eventually, the salary cap forces you to discard players. When you are in a position when you do not have that kind of (deep) roster, if you have catastrophic injuries to key players, you won’t recover.” So which injuries thus far this season have had or will have the most impact? Try these: QUARTERBACKS Bradford would be at the top because he seemed to be making strides. The No. 1 overall selection in the 2010 draft will be replaced by journeyman Kellen Clemens. Jay Cutler would be next most meaningful, and his absence comes when the Bears have Green Bay, Detroit and Baltimore ahead after their bye. A rookie also would make the list, Buffalo’s EJ

Manuel. The Bills appear to be building something solid in upstate New York, but judging how good they can be is impossible until Manuel recovers from his knee injury. Throw in Robert Griffin III’s slow recovery from his offseason knee surgery, which held back the Redskins in a weak division. MOST DAMAGING: Cutler, because the Bears aren’t contenders without him, as enigmatic as he might be. RECEIVERS A big group here, led by Julio Jones and Reggie Wayne. When the Falcons pulled off their huge trade in 2011 to get Jones as their game-breaker, they envisioned an unstoppable offense. Jones would be the deep threat who made everyone else more dangerous. This season, even with Jones in the lineup, the Falcons were struggling.

Knights knocked out in semifinals BY PHIL FRIEND

FORT WAYNE — The East Noble volleyball team carried a veteran squad of eight seniors into Saturday’s Class 4A Sectional 5 semifinal against Carroll. Unfortunately for the Knights, Carroll’s 1-2 punch of sophomores Katherine Novack and Jacqueline Quade was too much to overcome. Novack had 11 kills and Quade 12 kills as the Chargers defeated East Noble, 3-0 (25-17, 25-18, 25-21). “We came in as prepared as we could be,” said East Noble coach Nicki Ramey. “They’re just very experienced at winning sectionals. I know what it’s like to win sectionals, and when you have a program that’s starting to believe they can compete, it still takes a little while. Teams want it now, and as a coach, I want it now, too, but I think we gave it our best shot and worked hard. They were just a little better at doing certain things than what we were (Saturday).” The Knights finished their season with a 14-18 record. East Noble kept the beginning of all

three sets close, with tie scores at 15-15, 8-8 and 14-14, respectively. But at each of those points, Carroll’s rotation seemingly put Katelyn Yeager or Novack as the server. And those two hurt the Knights, as Yeager finished with eight aces and Novack had a handful. “They took us out of our game each set,” Ramey said. “They’re the ones that separated the score and made it not close anymore. They’d rattle off 4-5 points in a row, and I felt like that’s where they got us — one rotation.” In the first set, Carroll broke open the 15-15 tie with a 6-0 run, with Yeager tallying three aces. The run would stretch to 10-2 as the Chargers closed out the set with a 25-17 win. In the second set, East Noble led 8-7 before Yeager stepped up to serve again and spearheaded a 6-0 run (with two aces) to give Carroll a 13-8 lead. The Knights would get within two points on two occasions but would not get any closer. In the third and final set, Quade served a 5-0 run, getting one ace, to give the Chargers a 19-14 lead. East Noble would

cut the lead to 23-20 following a kill by Madison Cook and an ace from Jacey Cauhorn, but would get no closer. Cook and Kavan Edwards led East Noble with six kills each. Claire DeCamp had four kills, Cauhorn had six digs, Kourtney Edwards had four blocks, Sydney Rodenbeck had eight assists and Natalie Galaviz had nine assists. For Carroll, Novack had 18 assists and eight digs, Quade had seven digs and Emma Ruskaup had 16 assists. It was the final match for EN seniors Cook, Rodenbeck, Kavan Edwards, DeCamp, Galaviz, Kourtney Edwards, Cauhorn and Samantha Ihrie. “These girls really had a great season,” Ramey said. “We’re trying to beef up their schedule, playing harder teams — which sometimes doesn’t help when you’re looking at records, but we need to help get this program better. These seniors have been on varsity anywhere from 2-4 years. They’ve been a big part of this program and hopefully people look up to them with their work ethic. We’re going to miss them.”

South Adams ousts Eastside Season ends for WN, LPC, Angola, Hamilton BY JEFF JONES

WOODBURN — It’s not over until the final point is on the board. Such was the case Saturday in the Eastside-South Adams semi-final match in the Class 2A Woodlan Sectional. The Blazers led the fifth and deciding game 11-7, when all of a sudden the Starfires threw a switch and rattled off three quick points — two kills by freshman Morgan Alberson and an ace from Cindy Int’Groen. Eastside (13-22) got a kill from junior Erin Strock to temporarily halt the momentum, but Alberson added two more kills, including one through a double block, to give the Starfires their first lead of the match at 13-12. Strock tied it with a back row tip, but senior Alyssa Bluhm finished off the Blazers with the last of her match-high 29 kills and six blocks in the final two points, giving South Adams a 25-21, 29-31, 25-19, 19-25, 15-13 win. It was a disappointing ending for the Blazers, but head coach Jordan Staus had no complaints about how her team played. “I told them I was proud of them, that they took it as far as they could go,” Staus said. “I would have loved to have won the game, but they played hard. They played great defense and great offense. “I couldn’t ask for anything better than that,” she added. “It just wasn’t their time I guess.” Early, the Blazers had few answers for Bluhm, who had three kills and two blocks down the stretch in the first game win. The Blazers jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead in the deciding game, behind three kills by junior Kailen Berry. Three kills and an ace by South Adams’ Caralie Farlow cut the deficit to 8-7, but Eastside stretched its advantage to four thanks to two Strock kills and a net interference call against the Starfires. Strock finished with 23 kills. Berry had 16 and junior Maddy Minehart had 11 to go with two blocks. Junior Kylee Yoder had 46 assists and two aces.

Bluhm had 29 kills. Alberson chipped in with 18 and freshman Abby Myers had nine. Another freshman, Emma Rosswurm, had 42 assists, and Bluhm added 15. There was plenty to like about the Blazers’ performance, particularly Strock and senior defensive specialist Brooke Staley. “Brooke was picking up (Bluhm’s shots),” Staus said. “She played excellent defense, and when Erin was in the front row, we could count on her for a kill. “I just wish we could have won.” Lakewood Park Lakewood Park Christian saw its season come to a close with a 3-0 loss to Blackhawk Christian (25-21, 25-20, 31-29) in the Class A Sectional 52 semifinals at Blackhawk. Blackhawk, ranked 12th in Class A, entered the match on a bit of a roll, having beat top-ranked Wes-Del last weekend. “We knew Blackhawk would be our toughest competition in our sectional,” said LPC coach Laura Hibbard. “They’re a very good team and they hit really well and we didn’t block very well. And that made the difference.” The third set was a back-andforth affair with Lakewood jumping out to an early lead before Blackhawk rallied to set up the final points that sent both teams past the normal 25 threshold. If Lakewood had been able to pull that game out, that could’ve changed the momentum. “We had a couple calls not go our way,” Hibbard said. “We had the lead for awhile and just made a couple serve receive errors and Blackhawk ran off a couple more points and they were able to close. That was really disappointing to me that we couldn’t finish that game, especially with having the early lead.” Brittan Carnahan led Lakewood Park with 17 kills and was also 15 of 15 serving with one ace. Naomi Page had 10 kills and was 16 of 18 serving with two aces, Kendall Snyder had nine kills, Brooke Herendeen had 43 assists and 25 digs, and Chloe McRobbie had 28 digs. Lakewood Park Christian

finishes the year with a 25-7 record. The Panthers lose one senior in Jessica Mafera. “It was a great season. I’m proud of our girls,” Hibbard said. “I love our girls and I can’t wait until next year. We can only go up from here. Our senior had great leadership and we need someone to step up and make up for her lost leadership but I’m pretty excited for the years to come in Lakewood volleyball.” West Noble West Noble’s volleyball season came to a halt in the semifinal round of the Class 3A Sectional 21 tournament Saturday. The Chargers fell to Tippecanoe Valley in three games to start the day’s events in the West Noble gym. In the semifinals, Tippecanoe Valley’s scores over the Chargers (7-28) were 25-17, 25-9, 25-17, while Fairfield ousted NorthWood in the other semi, 25-19, 25-22, 25-19. Kaylie Warble had six kills for West Noble while Rachel Schermerhorn and Kenzie Teel each recorded five. Kelsie Peterson had 27 digs and 14 assists for the Chargers. Tippecanoe Valley (18-9) lost to Fairfield in the finals as Fairfield ended up winning the sectional championship in three sets: 25-17, 25-15, 25-11. Fairfield will host a regional game on Tuesday. Angola The 3A sectional host Bishop Dwenger Saints defeated Angola 26-24, 25-16, 25-13 in the first semifinal. The Hornets finished their season at 17-17. Angola led 22-18 in game one, but Dwenger overcame that deficit and took control of the match with strong serving in the second game. Hamilton Hamilton lost to Bethany Christian 25-6, 25-13, 25-11 in a Blackhawk Christian Sectional semifinal. Bayleigh Steury, Emma Gaff and Emma Lucas each had two kills for the Marines. Zoie Farnsworth had six assists. Leslie Petre and Emma Lucas each had six digs. Emma Gaff finished with five digs and Steury added four.

BARONS: DeKalb topped Snider in semifinal match FROM PAGE B1

The Barons drew inspiration from their regularseason match with Carroll, a 3-0 loss. “Looking at film, we saw unforced errors versus points that (Carroll) earned. That really got our girls encouraged. And the fact that, since we beat ourselves the first time, we couldn’t do that (Saturday night),” Spiess said. “They came out in games one and two and we didn’t beat ourselves. “But that changed throughout the progression of the game. When you’re mentally exhausted like that, you’re going to have some mistakes.” However, Carroll (27-7) made an adjustment in the second set, speeding up its offense by using quicker sets to counter the Barons’ big block. It worked. Quade, who only had two kills in the first set, had five kills and a block kill in the second, and Katherine Novack added four kills. The Chargers had 14 kills in the second set compared to nine in the first. “(DeKalb) came out guns blazing. They had a good game plan in place that took us off balance and, most important, took us out of ball control,” said Carroll coach Doug Helsom. “After that we were able to settle down and pick up the speed of our offense. We weren’t going to be able to swing at high balls against that block and be successful, so we tried to pick up the pace.” In the set, DeKalb led 11-10 before Carroll went on a 6-0 run to take a 16-11 lead it would not relinquish. Carroll came out on fire in the third set, racing out to a 7-1 lead. and maintained a decent advantage throughout much of the game. A kill by Emma Ruskaup pushed Carroll’s lead to 17-9, and Tatum Lohse tallied the final kill of the set for the 25-18 Carroll win.

DeKalb junior Lexi Hooks had 16 digs in the Barons’ 3-1 win over Snider in Saturday’s Class 4A Sectional 5 semifinal.

In the fourth set, the Chargers used a 10-1 run to grab a 12-4 lead — backed by kills from three different players, and two blocks and an ace from Quade. They’d eventually push that advantage to 18-7 and later 22-10 on back-to-back aces from Ruskaup. Quade closed the set and the match with back-to-back aces. “They got us out of our system for sure,” Spiess said. “It was hard for us to get back in it. They’ve got a quick offense; it’s an offense we strive to have. They figured us out, got around our blocks and were hitting sharper angles than what we’re used to seeing. And it’s tough to set up your offense when you’re scrambling to get the ball. But at the same time our girls fought hard. They have no reason to hang their head with their performance.” Hayley Martin led DeKalb with 10 kills and

four blocks. Fifer had seven kills, Hooks had 13 digs, Lewis had three aces and two blocks, and Hunter Daub had 23 assists and two aces. For Carroll, Quade had 14 kills and four aces, Lohse had eight kills, Novack had eight kills and 24 assists, Ruskaup had 20 assists and four aces, Remington Swoverland had 10 digs and Katelyn Yeager had eight digs. Saturday night’s final was the last match for seniors Martin and Tiffany Harpenau. “Day one of summer workouts, you wouldn’t think that this team looked like they were going to be in the sectional championship game, because we struggled,” Spiess said. “But they kept working. They’re a very dedicated group of girls … we had great attendance throughout our summer and we really progressed. We did

a lot of switching, changing throughout the season. We were our best version of ourselves at the end of the year and that’s exactly what you want.” SEMIFINALS DeKalb 3, Snider 1 Snider (9-24) surprised DeKalb by taking the first set 25-21, and led 16-9 in the second set. But the Barons woke up at that point, rattling off seven straight points to tie the set and eventually win it 26-24. From there, DeKalb took the final two sets 25-15, 25-17 to beat the Panthers 3-1. Martin led the way with 15 kills and added four digs and two aces. Daub had 34 assists, five digs and three aces, Fifer had six kills, four digs and two aces, Lewis had 12 kills, Shade Herbolsheimer had four kills, Hooks had 16 digs, Sarah Harper had five digs and Harpenau had four digs.

INDIANAPOLIS — The Angola doubles team of senior Markus Arnold and Craig Nofziger lost to North Central’s Patrick McAuley and William Reifeis 6-2, 6-0 in a semifinal match of the Indiana High School Athletic Association State Doubles Finals Saturday afternoon inside the Five Seasons Sports Club. “We went toe-to-toe with North Central. We hung with them, but came up short,” Hornets coach Scott Hottell said in a text message. The senior Arnold and the junior Nofziger finished the season at 27-2. Reifeis and McAuley went on to complete a 27-0 season with a state title, defeating Bishop Dwenger seniors Bertram Najev and Charlie Scott 6-4, 6-4 in the championship match.

College Soccer Comets top Trine ANGOLA — Trine University’s women’s soccer team lost to Olivet 3-1 in a Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Conference match Saturday afternoon. Jamie McCarrell scored first to give Trine (2-14, 1-12 MIAA) the lead 4 minutes, 53 seconds into the match. The Comets are 7-9, 4-9.

WARRIORS: Central Noble improved FROM PAGE B1

“We had to put the ball down, keep attacking and serve aggressive,” she said. “Our hitters have come a long way in learning what hits work best for them.” Senior Kennedy Forker had 21 digs for Central Noble, and senior Kristin Clear had three blocks. Sophomore Mikayla Stringfellow was 11-11 serving with two aces.

Junior Haley Duncan had eight kills and junior Tricia VanGessel had 18 assists. Seniors Darby Roe and McKynzi Grayless also played in their final prep volleyball matches for CN. “All in all, I’ve seen improvement,” Warrix said. “I enjoyed working with these kids. What I love about them is that they were not resistant to change.”




Late goal lifts Rangers past Red Wings DETROIT (AP) — Derick Brassard’s breakaway goal in the closing seconds of overtime gave the New York Rangers a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night. Brassard scored his first of the season with only 12.9 seconds showing on the OT clock to give the Rangers their first win in Detroit since Jan. 30, 1999. Benoit Pouliot had a goal and an assist and Mats Zuccarello also scored for New York, which rallied from 1-0 and 2-1 deficits in the final game of its season-opening, nine-game road trip. Cam Talbot stopped 32 shots while filling in for injured regular Henrik Lundqvist. The Rangers (3-6), who went to overtime for the first time this season, will host Montreal in the opener at renovated Madison Square Garden on Monday. Drew Miller and Daniel Alfredsson scored for Detroit, which lost its fourth straight. Jimmy Howard made 37 saves. Wild 5, Blackhawks 3 Niklas Backstrom made 33

saves in his first win of the season and Minnesota defeated Chicago in a rematch of their first-round playoff series. Jason Pominville had two goals in his 600th career game and Minnesota earned its third consecutive win. Zach Parise, Kyle Brodziak and Justin Fontaine also scored for the Wild, and Ryan Suter and Mikael Granlund had two assists apiece. Bryan Bickell scored for the fourth consecutive game for the Blackhawks, who had recorded at least one point in each of their past seven games. Patrick Kane added his team-best sixth goal in the third period. Devils 4, Bruins 3 Marek Zidlicky and Andy Greene scored power-play goals 23 seconds apart late in the third period and New Jersey snapped a seven-game losing streak against Boston. Torey Krug, Jarome Iginla and Milan Lucic scored first-period goals for Boston (7-3). Adam Henrique and Damien

Air Force falls to Notre Dame AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) — The name of Air Force’s starting quarterback doesn’t scare Notre Dame nearly as much as the offensive scheme. The Falcons (1-6, 0-5 Mountain West) have yet to announce which backup QB will be under center when they try to end a six-game slide on Saturday against the Fighting Irish. It could be Nate Romine, a fourth stringer when the season began who’s rapidly moved up the depth chart due to injuries and an academic ineligibility. Or it possibly may be Karson Roberts — the backup to the backup out of fall camp — as he returns from a concussion he suffered two weeks ago against San Diego State. No matter, the Irish are simply preparing for the structure of Air Force’s triple-option offense, not so much the starter.

“For us, (that’s) the most important element,� Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said. “The quarterback certainly is part of that scheme and so when we look at both of the quarterbacks that have played in the last game, the last couple of games, it really, for us, is not as important as preparation for the scheme.� Notre Dame has some quarterback concerns of its own, with Tommy Rees leaving a 14-10 win over USC last Saturday in the third quarter with a strained neck. But Rees looked solid in practice this week and is expected to play. “It was good to have Tommy out there,� Kelly said. “He took all the first-team reps (Thursday) and he looked really good.� Still, backup Andrew Hendrix received more time than usual with the first-team offense, just in case.

Brunner also had power-play goals for the struggling Devils. Martin Brodeur stopped 25 shots after a rough start. Iginla and David Krejci each had two assists as Boston built a 3-1 lead. Flyers 5, Islanders 2 Vinny Lecavalier scored three goals in Philadelphia’s biggest offensive outburst of the season, and Steve Mason made 26 saves in the victory over New York. The Flyers (3-7) hadn’t scored more than two goals in any of their first nine games. One more and they would have become the first NHL team to have a seasonopening run of 10 games without three goals since the 1940 New York Americans. Philadelphia has won two straight since a franchise-worst 1-7 start. Jakub Voracek and Matt Read also scored, and former Islanders captain Mark Streit added two assists. Kyle Okposo and Frans Nielsen had goals, and Kevin Poulin made


time in four attempts at the Bell Centre since December 2002. Carey Price made 35 saves for Montreal. After a scoreless first period in which San Jose outshot Montreal 11-8, Couture scored a power-play goal at 6:20 of the second period. Captain Joe Thornton sent a precise pass onto Couture’s stick and the 24-year-old made no mistake from close range for his fifth goal of the year. Couture doubled the Sharks’ lead at 4:09 of the third when Patrick Marleau’s dump-in bounced off the glass and landed on Couture’s stick in front of a gaping net. Blues 6, Predators 1 Alexander Steen scored two goals to lead St. Louis over Nashville. T.J. Oshie, Jaden Schwartz, Derek Roy and Alex Pietrangelo also scored for the Blues, who had lost three of four. Nick Spaling scored for Nashville, which has lost two of three.

CROSS COUNTRY: Hostetler makes fourth-straight state final FROM PAGE B1

“I’m pretty happy,� Dirr said. “I was kinda worried after falling apart in the second mile. I knew I had to stay where I was in the last mile. I was lucky I finished because I was running for dear life.� Hostetler maintained the top form she has had all season long and her trust in the training program veteran Eagle coach Moses Castillo set up specifically for her. Hostetler became the first Fremont cross country runner to qualify for four state finals after her fourth straight top 10 semistate finish. “I had to get out fast so I didn’t get stuck in the crowd and stay up front,� Hostetler said. “I had to dig deep to help my position and help the team.� Beckmann was proud of his efforts. “I did good,� he said. “I would like to have gotten second, but I’ll come back strong next week. I need to stay on my feet after tumbling last year. I’m going for a top 20 finish and a medal.� Beckmann was trying

27 saves for the Islanders. Lightning 3, Sabres 2 Ondrej Palat and Martin St. Louis scored third-period goals to help Tampa Bay rally past Buffalo. After St. Louis pulled the Lightning even at 14:09, Palat made it 3-2 from the low slot 1:46 later. Tyler Johnson had the other Tampa Bay goal as the Lightning completed a seven-game homestand with a 5-2 record. Brian Flynn and Thomas Vanek scored for Buffalo, which was coming off a 3-1 win at Florida on Friday night in which the Sabres were outshot 45-21. Buffalo took a 2-1 lead when Vanek scored from the low left circle after taking a nifty pass from Marcus Foligno 12:46 into the third. Vanek has 24 goals and 39 points in 33 games against Tampa Bay. Sharks 2, Canadiens 0 Antti Niemi made 22 saves, Logan Couture scored twice and San Jose beat Montreal for the first

West Noble junior Brandon Arnold (505) is going back to the state finals after finishing eight in the New Haven Semistate Saturday at The Plex.

Prairie Heights junior Aspen Dirr runs in the New Haven Semistate. Dirr was 18th and was the second to last individual to earn a state berth.

to keep up with Concordia senior standout Zach Panning as long as he could, then hammer his way to the finish. Panning repeated as semistate champion in 15:19.36. Homestead sophomore Brayden Law was a distant second in 15:53.79. “I enjoy running against Panning. We have the same style,� Beckmann said. Arnold ran another controlled postseason race. “It was pretty relaxing. I wanted to stay with my pack and I thought I executed pretty well,� he said. “It was windy, but it was not a big factor.� Arnold knows what to expect after making state for the first time last year and won’t be in awe of the field nor the surroundings on the LaVern Gibson Championship Course at the Wabash Valley Sports Center this coming Saturday. “My goal is to do a lot better,� Arnold said. “It won’t be as stressful this time around. In my last race (of the season), if I

can’t give it everything I can, that would be very disappointing.� Fremont’s girls team were extremely close to qualifying for state for the first time. But race officials caught a glitch that led to bittersweet heartbreak for the Eagles. At first notice, Fremont finished fifth and was state-bound. But the chip worn by No. 2 Homestead finisher Grace Walther was not read clearly. Officials made a change and Fremont ended up tied for sixth with Huntington North with 213 points. HN won the sixth and final state berth from the semistate as a result of the sixth-runner tiebreaker. Castillo disputed the decision, but no change was made. He spent a lengthy amount of time in the woods coming to grips with the agonzing result and finding the right message for his girls. He was diplomatic and proud of how girls ran. A couple Eagles ran at less than full strength. Sophomore Katie Culler

was affected by a stress reaction in a toe and finished 135th overall. Freshman Courtney Woosley was battling toe discomfort, too, and placed 58th. Fremont, a school of 359 students, had a girls team of six strong that was ranked in the state as late as last week. “A bunch of schools over 1,600 students finished ahead of us. We did everything we could do. I can’t (fuss) about that,� Castillo said. “Katie put it on the line and showed a testament of will. “It wasn’t meant to be and we’ll learn from it. Homestead, Concordia and Huntington North ran well. We’ve had a great season and this doesn’t take away from what the kids have done.� The Huntington North girls team approached the Fremont tents and congratulated the Eagles in an act of sportmanship. Freshman Riley Welch was Fremont’s No. 2 runner in 46th place at 20:09.59. Junior Makenna Cade placed 49th in 20:12.71. Carroll edged Penn for the girls’ team title, 69-73. Pendleton Heights was third with 141, followed by Northridge (164), Homestead (167), and Huntington North to round out the state qualifying team. Concordia was eighth with 222. Penn junior Maddie Woods was semistate champion in 18:10.36. Both races had near misses by local runners. In the girls’ run, Angola freshman Josey Korte was two runners and a little over three seconds away from making state. She was 23rd in 19:27.05. DeKalb sophomore Krista McCormick was 24th in 19:28.78. For the boys, East Noble sophomore Joseph Vandiver was three runners and just under five seconds from going to state. He was 25th in 16:42.41. Carroll won the boys semistate with 71 points, followed by Northridge (116), Bishop Dwenger (142), South Bend Riley (149), Homestead (160) and South Adams (169) to round out the state qualifiers. West Noble was 11th with 227. Brad Pyle was 46th for the Chargers in 16:58.25, and Alex Deluna was 59th in 17:04.65. Fremont senior Alex Beams was 62nd in 17:07.79. For Angola, Nate Roe was 75th in 17:17.07 and Isaiah Mortorff was 90th in 17:28.53. Baron junior Clayton Travis was 84th in 17:22.53. In the girls’ race, East Noble senior Alexia Zawadzke was 34th in 19:44.51, and West Noble junior Amairany Cruz was 41st in 20:03.08. Garrett freshman Maranda Malcolm was 64th in 20:29.39. Saturday’s cross country state finals will start with the boys’ race at 1 p.m., followed by the girls’ race at 1:45 p.m.

SPORTS BRIEFS • Darrell Wallace Jr. sets NASCAR milestone MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) — Darrell Wallace Jr. became the second black driver to win on NASCAR’s national level and first in a half-century, taking the Truck Series race Saturday at Martinsville Speedway. Wendell Scott won in Jacksonville, Fla., in December 1963 in what is now known as the Sprint Cup Series, the highest of NASCAR’s three national levels. Wallace, driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports, beat Jeb Burton into Turn 1 off a restart with five laps to go. Wallace was never below sixth place and led a race-high 96 laps but needed to survive a final restart. Wallace chose the inside line for the reset and quickly pulled away from Burton. The Concord, N.C., driver was making his 19th career start. Brendan Gaughan was second, followed by Burton. Championship leader Matt Crafton finished 17th and leads James Buescher by 51 points with three races remaining.

Hamlin wins pole at Martinsville; Johnson second MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) — Denny Hamlin promised he would be a factor in Sunday’s NASCAR race at Martinsville Speedway, and he went out and proved it by leading a parade of drivers who smashed the track qualifying record. Hamlin turned a lap at 99.595 mph around the 0.526-mile oval, the oldest and shortest in the Sprint Cup Series. It’s his 17th career pole, third at Martinsville and career-best fifth this season. Johnson, a five-time champion for Hendrick Motorsports, will start the race with a four-point lead over Matt Kenseth in the championship, and surrounded by Kenseth and his teammates — Hamlin and Kyle Busch. Johnson and Busch actually tied in qualifying at 99.344 mph, but Johnson was awarded the second spot based on the owner points tiebreaker, moving Busch to the third spot with Kenseth alongside. The top 10 in the starting grid features half of the top 10 in points with just four events to go. Busch and Kevin Harvick (starting 10th) are third, 26 back, and Jeff Gordon (9th) is fifth, 34 back.

Stroud, Moore on top KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Chris Stroud and Ryan Moore overcame mistakes and bogeys on the back nine Saturday for a share of the lead after the third round of the CIMB Classic. Stroud started the day five strokes back but surged into contention after five birdies on the front nine — including four in a row — before hitting into the water on the 12th hole and carding two bogeys for a 4-under 68. Moore (69) opened up a three-shot lead on the back nine only to bogey four of five holes to give it right back. Both were on 12-under 204, one stroke ahead of their nearest rivals. Gary Woodland (67) and Kiradech Aphibarnrat (69) were a stroke back. The tricky conditions led to huge momentum swings throughout the day at the PGA Tour event, with plenty of balls in the water and in the rough beneath the palm trees lining the course at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club. Secondround leader Keegan Bradley had a 76 to fall into a tie for sixth at 9 under. Phil Mickelson was 7 under after a 68. The tournament is an official PGA Tour event for the first time. The winner will receive a two-year PGA Tour exemption and a spot in the Masters.

Guthrie shares BMW lead SHANGHAI (AP) — American Luke Guthrie stumbled at the end of the third round and wound up tied for the lead with Spain’s Rafa Cabrera-Bello in the BMW Masters. Guthrie has led the European Tour event since his 65 in the opening round, and he had a three-shot lead at one point on the back nine at Lake Malaren. But his tee shot caught the bunker on the 16th, leading to a bogey. And he was in such an awkward spot on the 18th green that Guthrie felt his best option was to chip off the putting surface. He missed an 8-foot putt to take another bogey for an even-par 72. Cabrera-Bello was far more efficient, keeping bogeys off his card in a round of 67. His final birdie on the par-3 17th turned out to be good enough for a share of the lead. They were at 8-under 208, one shot ahead of Spain’s Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano (67).

Petterson leads by 4 shots YANGMEI, Taiwan (AP) — Defending champion Suzann Pettersen struggled with three early bogeys but recovered for a 1-over 73 to maintain a four-shot lead in the LPGA Taiwan Championship. The Norwegian dropped three shots over the first five holes but had three birdies and just one more bogey the rest of the way to finish three rounds at 6-under 210. Azahara Munoz (69), Sun Young Yoo (72) and Carlota Ciganda (72) were tied for second at Sunrise Golf and Country Club. The second-ranked Pettersen has three LPGA Tour victories this year, winning in Portland, Ore., and France in consecutive starts last month. She also won a Ladies European Tour event this year in China.

Suspect surrenders after shootout ROSEVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Some residents of a suburban Sacramento city still were waiting to return to their homes 24 hours after a Friday-night shootout between law enforcement agents and a wanted parolee left six officers injured. Roseville police spokesman Lt. Cal Walstad said that one Roseville police officer with a jaw wound and a federal immigration agent shot in the leg remain

hospitalized Saturday in serious condition. Four other Roseville officers injured by shrapnel were treated and released. The suspect in the violent confrontation that ended after an hours-long standoff is a validated gang member with a criminal record that includes assault and carjacking. Samuel Nathan Duran, 32, was taken to the Placer County jail Saturday after being treated for scrapes and cuts.


Reinforced dunes and the buried remains of the former boardwalk define a beach in the Rockaway neighborhood in the borough of Queens, New York. A year after Superstorm Sandy, while

some beach towns quickly rebuilt their seaside promenades and beaches, for every success story, there are tales of continuing frustration.

Sandy recovery slow NEW YORK (AP) — A year after Superstorm Sandy catastrophically flooded hundreds of miles of eastern U.S. coastline, thousands of people still trying to fix their soaked and surf-battered homes are being stymied by bureaucracy, insurance disputes and uncertainty over whether they can even afford to rebuild. Billions of dollars in federal aid appropriated months ago by Congress have yet to reach homeowners who need that money to move on. Many have found flood insurance checks weren’t nearly enough to cover the damage. And worse, new federal rules mean many in high-risk flood zones may have to either jack their houses up on stilts or pilings — an expensive, sometimes impossible task — or face new insurance rates that hit $10,000 or more per year. “It’s just been such a

terrible burden,” said Gina Maxwell, whose home in Little Egg Harbor, N.J., is still a wreck after filling with 4 feet of water. Contractors say it will cost $270,000 to rebuild — about double what the insurance paid out. The family doesn’t have the money. “What do we do with this house? Just give them the deed back?” she said. “My son is 11. He has a little piggy bank in his room. He said, ‘Take it, mom.’” In blue-collar Union Beach, N.J., the owner of the popular restaurant Jakeabob’s Bay has come up with only a quarter of the $2 million she needs to rebuild. In Long Beach, a barrier-island city of 33,000 on the coast of New York’s Long Island, residents in some neighborhoods say half their neighbors have yet to return. “I don’t think Long Beach is ever going to be what it was,” said resident

Ginger Matthews. Sandy roared out of the Atlantic and struck the New York and New Jersey coasts on Oct. 29, 2012. The 1,000-mile-wide mashup of a hurricane and another huge weather system killed at least 182 people in the U.S., according to a count by The Associated Press, and caused an estimated $65 billion in damage. Floodwaters swept over densely populated barrier islands and pushed deep into bays and harbors from Atlantic City, N.J., all the way to Rhode Island. In New York City, the storm surge hit nearly 14 feet, sending the Hudson and East rivers pouring into the city’s subway and commuter tunnels and knocking out power to the southern third of Manhattan. Gas stations ran out of fuel. High-rise residents had to carry water up darkened stairwells. Thousands of fragile patients evacuated crippled hospitals and nursing homes.

Cut another circle out of the pink felt that is slightly smaller than the cardboard circle and glue it onto the bottom of your hat brim, this will cover the uneven wrapping of the top piece of felt. 4.

COSTUMES: Morning fairy the easiest costume: needed items are tutu, wand, fairy wings and headband be. Cut a diamond shape out of your pattern paper. Try the spike on your child. If you are happy with the size of the spike cut out enough diamonds to go from the top of your child’s head and down his back. I used six spikes. 2. Starting at the top center of the hoodie, pin the

diamonds in place down the back center of the hoodie. 3. Sew down the center of each diamond. 4. Sew the diamond halves together to form a spike. 5. Cut two circles out of the white adhesive felt. They will be the dragon’s eyes.

6. Using your red adhesive felt, cut two pupil shapes. I cut an elongated diamond but really any shape would work. 7. Peal off the paper backing and attach the pupils to the eye circles. Then peal the paper backing off eye shapes and attach to hoodie. You can also add teeth and claws

to the hoodie to make your dragon more ferocious.

TAIL What you’ll need: felt or fleece material, felt for spikes, stuffing or newspaper.

MAKE IT: 1. Use a tape measure to determine how long you want the tail to fall on your child.

8. Sew along the bottom and flip right side out. 9. Stuff dragon tail. I used a combination of felt scraps and newspaper, because that is what I had on hand. The newspaper kept it from being too heavy. If your child will want to wear the tail after Halloween I would recommend using a cotton stuffing. 10. Sew the tail onto the bottom underside of the hoodie.

Star Fairy To involve your child in the creation of her costume, let your little fairy dream up her own powers. Maybe the star fairy brings the nighttime, or lights the stars, or grants wishes on stars etc. This costume starts with black leggings and a black shirt. Add a tutu and some glow in the dark stars and your little one will be the star of the show.

Your dashing little knight will be the hero of the town. This costume starts with basic black pants and shirt. Add a belted tunic, cape and sword and your little guy is ready to hit the town. If the weather is chilly this Halloween, layer a sweatshirt under the knight’s tunic. Bonus: the hood looks like armor.

TUNIC What you’ll need: about a yard of white felt, knit or fleece material, tank top to use as a pattern, paper for your pattern, one sheet of adhesive felt, fleece to make the belt.

MAKE IT: 1. Fold tank top in half lengthwise and lay on paper. Trace around tank top, adding 1/2” seam allowance everywhere except the armhole and neck hole. Add length to the bottom so that tunic reaches just above your child’s knee. If the tunic will be over a sweatshirt you may want to add a little extra room. 2. Cut out pattern. 3. Place pattern on fold of material and cut out. This will be the back piece of the tunic.Repeat for the front piece but cut the neckline a little lower. 4. Lay your cut pieces together, right sides facing in. Sew shoulder seams with a 1/2” seam. 5. Pin sides together. On each side measure about 7” up from the bottom and mark. Sew side seams down to 7” mark, then leave open. 6. Turn tunic right side out. 7. Next, decide what design to put on the front of the tunic. I used a cross with flared ends. Draw your design on paper and then trace on to sheet of adhesive felt. Cut out and then center on front of tunic. Peel off paper backing and press firmly onto tunic. 8. For belt: Cut a strip of material about 3” wide and long enough to wrap around child’s waist and tie. If using fleece, felt or knit no need to hem.

CAPE What you’ll need: Fleece, felt or knit material, one gold glitter foam craft sheet, adhesive Velcro, hot glue gun.

4. Cut small button-like circle out of craft foam sheet. Glue one circle to each top corner of cape.

Crown What you’ll need: Paper for crown pattern. Leftover gold glitter foam craft sheet from cape, 1/4” elastic, hot glue gun.

MAKE IT: 1. Fold paper in half and sketch crown design, or print one from internet. 2. Trace template on back of craft foam and cut out. 3. Measure on child’s head and cut elastic band to fit. Glue elastic band to edge of crown on each side.

TUTU TUTORIAL What you’ll need: 3/4” elastic, 2 to 3 Spools of Tulle, sewing needle and thread to match elastic. Note: if you can’t find a spool of tulle in the color you need, you can buy yards of tulle off the bolt and then cut strips. Spools take some of the work out of it for you.

MAKE IT: 1. Measure your child’s waist where you want the tutu to sit. Use that exact measurement to cut elastic. 2. Sew ends of elastic together to form the waistband of the tutu. 3. Next, figure out how long you want the tutu and double it. You will be folding the tulle in half to create a double layer. 4. Cut strips of tulle in desired length. 5. Grab two strips of tulle and fold in half. Place the middle “loop” under the elastic. Next feed the ends of the tulle strips over the elastic band and through the “loop” of tulle. Gently pull to tighten. 6. Repeat until the band is completely covered and skirt is to your desired fullness.

Morning Fairy The morning fairy wakes the sun and welcomes each new day. The morning fairy would compliment the star fairy costume nicely and may make a good pair for sisters, cousins or friends. A onsie and leggings or leg warmers are the base for this costume. Add a yellow “sunrise” tutu, fairy wings, a wand and headband and your fairy is ready to light up your day.

MAKE IT: This was the easiest costume to make and would be a great last minute costume to whip up. I made a yellow tutu (see the tutu tutorial) and paired it with a store bought pair of fairy wings and a wand. And then, I found a sweet yellow sequined headband to round out the look.

2. Measure desired length of cape.

Show us your Halloween spirit: Don’t forget to share photos of your costume creations on our Facebook page. We would love to see your little trick-or-treaters.

Muslim student’s fasting provides food for thought And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, that your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. Matthew 6:16-18 Fasting is viewed as an expression of sacrifice, humility and submission to God.

Churches must take fiscal responsibilities seriously The church was located in Eastern Ohio. As a church consultant, I was there primarily to help them become more effective at reaching out to the unchurched in their community. In my analysis of the various aspects of their ministry, I noted some unusual practices in the area of handling finances. The treasurer was a quiet person who kept to himself. It was unusual that he refused to be a part of my interviews, which are standard for every church. This man handled both the receipts and the expenditures of the church. His reports were very sketchy and some of the payments listed each year were for taxes. Churches are tax-exempt. When I questioned the senior pastor and board, they reported the treasurer had served for 25 years and became “uptight” when anyone ever questioned anything. He was a volunteer, and there had never been an audit. My questions led to an official investigation that discovered he had embezzled more than $50,000 from the church. Today, he is in prison. The church was devastated. It

While this is a rare and unusual result of my church consulting, I do see a number of church practices—when it comes to money — that should be considered more carefully by churches. • First, the vast numbers of those who serve their churches THE in the area CHURCH of finances DOCTOR are loyal, honest and committed Kent Hunter Christians who do an enormous amount of volunteer work for their congregations. • For their protection, and everyone else’s, every financial system in a church should be built with checks and balances. • When money is collected, counted and deposited, it should be done by more than one person. • This group should be of several people who rotate so that there are rarely the same people in the same group.

Complete rules on back of card.







• A different group of people should handle the receipts. • Yet another person should pay the bills — someone who never handles the actual finances, but who only works from reports of deposits. • An internal audit should be conducted in most smaller churches on an annual basis. • This audit should be conducted by someone outside those who handle the finances or prepare the bills or financial statements. This person can be a volunteer, to save the church money. • An external audit should be conducted every three years in smaller churches and every year in

larger churches. • Staff should never handle money. If someone greets the pastor at the door, and says, “I forgot to put my envelope in the offering,” the pastor should ask them to give it to an usher. • Day-to-day expenses should be paid by check or credit card, whenever possible.

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips

Dad who runs to dinner date causes a stink

DEAR ABBY: I meet my dad for dinner once a week, which we both enjoy and have done for years. Dad stays very healthy and enjoys running and biking, which I completely support and admire him for. The problem is, he has started running to our meals. He sweats a lot when he runs, so he arrives at the restaurant literally dripping. He then grabs a handful of napkins to wipe off, and lifts his shirt to wipe his face and neck with it. Abby, he’s so sweaty that he has dripped on the counter when he signed the receipt. I find this unbelievably rude, not just to me but to the restaurant. This wouldn’t even be appropriate in a fast-food joint — but this ISN’T one. It’s a nice restaurant where people are trying to enjoy their meal. I feel if he wants to run to our dinners, he should arrange to get there early enough so he can dry off in a bathroom and change his shirt. He insists it’s no big deal and that sweating is “normal.” What should I do? This is really getting to me. — DISGUSTED IN SEATTLE DEAR DISGUSTED: While I, too, admire your father’s dedication to physical fitness, I can understand why his behavior would bother you. It is gross. If you haven’t already expressed to him how inconsiderate this is, please do. Because your father likes to run to the restaurant, consider stashing a supply of towels and shirts in the trunk of your car for him to change into in the men’s room out of view of other patrons. (And don’t forget the deodorant.) If he refuses to cooperate, then please — for everyone’s sake — pick him up and transport him to the restaurant. Just reading your letter is enough to make the famished lose their appetite. DEAR ABBY: I have been dating a man with a 14-yearold daughter who sits in the front seat of the car when we go anywhere, while I must sit in the back. I think when we go places, I should sit in the front seat. What do you think? — FUMING IN THE BACK SEAT DEAR FUMING: I think you and the daughter should alternate, and the person to suggest it should be her father. Under no circumstances should there be any whiff of competition, because if it comes across that way, the person not riding in the car will be you.

Pumpkin coffee cake has sour cream

Today, Oct. 18, is Elizabeth’s friend Timothy’s birthday. Happy birthday wishes go to him! We were going to take supper to Timothy’s house tonight but told him it’s easier if he would come here instead. Daughter Elizabeth didn’t have to work today so we are going to try to make an ice cream cake for Timothy. We have never tried it before so hopefully it will turn out OK. Also on our menu will be either fried or barbecued chicken. Am not sure what else we will have yet. Bow season has been in for a while now. This is the first year my husband, Joe, has tried bow hunting. He hasn’t had time to go too often yet but hopes to go tomorrow. Tomorrow is the Eicher reunion on Joe’s dad’s side. Money-wise we will be unable to attend. It will be in Berne, Ind., at a community building. With gas prices being high it also makes the prices go up for us when we hire drivers. We had to buy our coal for the winter or at least some of it, making things a little tight right now with money. We attended this reunion three years ago.

My husband Joe started working five days at the factory again this week which will help out a lot. We can’t complain as God gives us many blessings. How thankful we can be to have a place to live and plenty of food in the house. It makes us appreciate it all the more. One Sunday afternoon we recently walked back to see where Joe and the boys set up his tree stand in our neighbor’s woods. It was an interesting nature walk. It is a little bit hilly but Joe and the boys cleared a nice path to walk. Loretta, 13, has a hard time getting up the hills. Benjamin, 14, and Joseph, 11, hooked arms with her on either side and helped her get up the hilly areas. They also helped her get up in Joe’s tree stand which is 15 feet high. She was glad to be able to sit up there awhile although she was worn out until we came back home. Things the rest of us take for granted are so hard for her to do. Do we appreciate our good health enough? Having handicapped children makes you notice others with disabilities a lot more and be able to feel for them. God has a purpose for everything.

THE AMISH COOK Lovina Eicher

I try to help encourage Loretta all I can. She has days when she gets so frustrated. It is hard on her when people stare at her when she tries her best to get up a set of stairs. This is all for a reason and keeps us humble. God’s blessings to all!

Second job would help woman to retire high interest student loans DEAR BRUCE: Our daughter went to school to be a veterinarian assistant. Her student loan rate was 3 percent. Three years later, her student loans increased to 6.5 percent and 7 percent. She now pays $200 per month, interest

only, because it’s all she can afford. She says that she cannot even think about marriage and starting a family when she is in debt. She owes about $35,000. She is very frustrated, and so are we in watching her struggle. When the government took over these loans, the rate doubled. Is this how we take care of our young people and encourage schooling to get ahead? The only encouraging thing we have heard is that after 30 years, her unpaid balance would be forgiven. By that time, she will have paid $72,000. — N.B., via email DEAR N.B.: I can understand and sympathize with your daughter’s situation. I have no notion as to how much money she had to borrow, as opposed how much she wished to borrow rather than work, when she was in school, but the fact remains that she now owes about $35,000. That she can’t even think about marriage is distressing, however I don’t necessarily agree. As to the family, that is a different matter. Were she to get an extra job, over and above her regular job, at $5,000 a year, she could unload her debt in five years or so. With her skills, this shouldn’t be a difficult thing to find. There are many veterinary practices that work on weekends and pay substantial wages to folks who are willing to put in those weekend hours. She also might be able to find a lower interest rate. I am no expert in that regard, but I can certainly suggest that she talk to the finance people at her school. They may be able

to help her. Let’s face it, she got herself in this situation because she wanted to better herself and she has a $35,000 investment in herself. You didn’t indicate how much she earns, SMART but as a MONEY young person, if she puts six or Bruce Williams in seven days a week, she should be able to dispose of that loan in a reasonable amount of time. The fact that many kids are doing it is testimony that it can be done.

DEAR BRUCE: I have a pipe dream and would like your opinion on the idea. We own our own home, worth about $450,000. We have an IRA with $50,000, savings of $60,000 and $150,000 in the stock market. Our income is $55,000 a year. As you are well aware, the stock market is not all that stable. I am wondering if we should sell our stocks and purchase a vacation home near one of our sons. One lives in Sacramento, Calif., and one in Sparks, Nev. We would probably use the vacation property on several long weekends. Our visits now are only on weekends, and we stay at their homes. I am 87 years old and my wife is 85. We have no

debt other than utilities and living expenses. — R.R., via email DEAR R.R.: You say you have a pipe dream? I don’t find it a pipe dream. If you want to buy a vacation home, I have no problem with that. But I don’t think it’s the wisest thing to do from a financial point of view. You say stocks are not all that stable. I consistently point out that if you invest in conservative, dividendpaying companies, then the stock market can be one of the best places to have your investments grow. That being observed, at your respective ages of 87 and 85, purchasing a vacation home doesn’t seem to be the best choice. On the other side of that, there is no reason in the world why, in either the Sacramento or Sparks areas, you couldn’t find an attractive and useful vacation property to rent. You wouldn’t have the responsibility of upkeep, and as a practical matter, how many years are you going to be able to go out and vacation? I think you should start the vacation immediately, but I would consider leasing a home rather than purchasing one. Send your questions to: Smart Money, P.O. Box 2095, Elfers, FL 34680.

Experiments help explore osteoarthritis pain Everyone is special as an individual. However, there are many characteristics we share that bring us together as populations. Medical studies take those groups with something in common and find out how they react to a treatment. Ironically, when the treatment is used by an individual, the results may not match the conclusion made by the study. For example, I am one of the estimated 27 million Americans who suffer from osteoarthritis of the knee or hip. However, I get no relief from ibuprofen and similar anti-inflammatory drugs because they make me itch, swell, and have difficulty breathing. So, I have tried the nutritional supplements glucosamine and chondroitin, which have been marketed for joint health for about 20 years. The supplements were first tried in horses and are also marketed to dog owners. But researchers say that for humans, the results have not been great.

Unfortunately, I seem to be one of those human non-responders. Glucosamine is an amino sugar that may help renew cartilage, and chondroitin sulfate is DR. TERRY a complex carbohyGAFF drate that is thought to help cartilage retain water. For many years, I have been quoting results from an earlier study involving glucosamine and chondroitin. That one showed that the supplements had little effect by themselves. However, when they were combined with a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) like naproxen (Naprosyn or Aleve), they doubled the effect of the NSAID without increasing

Seinfeld has help for cooking-phobic with 3rd book NEW YORK (AP) — Jessica Seinfeld’s first two cookbooks “Deceptively Delicious” and “Double Delicious” showed parents how to sneak vegetables into their kids’ meals. She may have helped some families, but she realized there still were plenty who wouldn’t try her recipes — or any recipes — because of their fear of the kitchen. That made her think: “‘You know, I haven’t solved this problem,’ which is the fear of going into the kitchen and turning on the stove or shopping for the right ingredients … I like to solve problems, so I said, ‘I’m going to look into this.’” The result is “The Can’t Cook Book: Recipes for the Absolutely Terrified” (Atria Books). AP: A lot of people who don’t cook regularly will tackle a really ambitious recipe with a lot of ingredients or prep and then get overwhelmed. Are your recipes easy to follow? Seinfeld: I created these with just a few ingredients because I don’t like to cook with a lot of ingredients and for beginners you really get tripped up the more steps you add in and the more flavors you add in. I really just try to use a few high quality ingredients that people can find pretty much anywhere. AP: When did you start cooking? Seinfeld: I’ve been cooking since I was really young. My mom would call me before she left work and

kind of tell me, ‘Here’s how you do this and this is how you help me get started with dinner.’ Dinner would sort of be halfway ready for her. And then she would leave me sticky notes when she got ready in the morning sometimes and as I got older I could just really help her get the meal going before she got home. AP: Also, there’s a sense of accomplishment that comes with cooking for yourself. Seinfeld: It’s a good thing to be in control of and a basic life skill in a way that you can take care of yourself. It’s more economical, it’s better for you and in the end, personally I hate not being good at something. I hate feeling like, ‘Oh, I can’t do that.’

the side effects of the NSAID. To test the supplements’ effectiveness, the National Institutes of Health funded a $12.5 million study published in 2006 in the New England Journal of Medicine. It assigned 1,583 people around the country to take either glucosamine, chondroitin, a combination of the two, an anti-inflammatory drug,or a placebo. Neither participants nor the researchers knew what they were taking. The vast majority of patients reported no significant difference in pain relief between glucosamine, chondroitin, a combination of the two or a placebo. But for a small subset of patients, those with moderate to severe arthritis pain in a knee, there was some benefit. But the number of patients in that group was so small that the finding needs to be confirmed by further study. Two large studies are currently underway

“The vast majority of patients reported no significant difference in pain relief between glucosamine, chondroitin, a combination of the two or a placebo.” Dr. Terry Gaff

• in Europe and Australia that may help answer that question. However, for most patients, the supplements did not appear to affect the structure of the joint or cause any delay in the progression of the disease compared to placebo. The good news however is that the placebo lowered the pain of arthritis by 20 percent or more in 60 percent of the test subjects. Also, taking supplements or placebo pills make it more likely that people will be active and lose weight. People have a hard time exercising and losing

weight if they hurt. There is abundant evidence that losing weight and regular exercise are effective treatments for osteoarthritis pain. If you lose only five pounds, you are talking about the equivalent of decreasing 20 pounds of stress across those knees. You can imagine it would make quite a difference. Pretty much any type of exercise seems to reduce pain and increase flexibility. There have been a variety of different exercise studies that have tried everything from water aerobics to walking to muscle strengthening, and they all seem to work.

Maybe it would be best to take something that will decrease pain for a little while and get some exercise during that period of relief. One of my friends suggested that a few beers would work well for this purpose. However, I think that would not be a good choice. For me, a couple of Tylenol pills will allow me to jog for a while, making my joints feel better for a couple of days. If you must endure the pain associated with osteoarthritis, the best advice is weight control and exercise in moderation. If you want to try glucosamine and chondroitin, it may help, but it is by no means guaranteed. Remember that we are all unique and your response might be better than most (or not at all). DR.

Leaving the driving to a computer has big benefits WASHINGTON (AP) — In some ways, computers make ideal drivers: They don’t drink and then climb behind the wheel. They don’t do drugs, get distracted, fall asleep, run red lights or tailgate. And their reaction times are quicker. They do such a good job, in fact, that a new study says self-driving cars and trucks hold the potential to transform driving by eliminating the majority of traffic deaths, significantly reducing congestion and providing tens of billions of dollars in economic benefits. But significant hurdles to widespread use of self-driving cars remain, the most important of which is likely to be cost. Added sensors, software, engineering and power and computing requirements currently tally over $100,000 per vehicle, clearly unaffordable for most people, the study said. But large-scale production “promises greater affordability over time,” it concluded. Questions also remain about public acceptance, liability in event of an accident, and the ability of automakers to prevent car computers from being hacked. Nevertheless, the advantages of self-driving cars are such that if only 10 percent of cars and trucks on the road were self-driving, they could reduce traffic deaths by 1,000 per year and produce nearly $38 billion in economic and other savings, said the study by the Eno Center for Transportation, a foundation dedicated to improving transportation. If 90 percent of vehicles were self-driving, as many as 21,700 lives per year could be saved, and economic and other benefits could reach a


This Sept. 3, file photo shows a videographer photographing the Google self-driving car during a news conference at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute’s Smart Road in Blacksburg, Va. A new study that attempts to quantify the benefits of self-driving cars and trucks says they hold the potential to transform driving by eliminating the majority of traffic deaths, significantly reducing congestion and providing tens of billions of dollars in economic benefits.

staggering $447 billion, said the study, a copy of which was provided to The Associated Press. “There will be many steps before we get to that, but it does feel like there is a whole new world that completely changes everything in terms of our perspective on driving that could emerge eventually,” said Joshua Schank, Eno’s president and CEO. For example, the passenger compartment may be transformed as former drivers safely work on laptops, eat meals, read books, watch movies and call friends. And cars that can be programmed to pick up people, drive them to their destination and then park by themselves may change the lives of the elderly

and disabled by providing critical mobility. Once a critical mass of self-driving cars is on the road, they can start “platooning” — driving closely together but keeping a steady distance between each other without the fuel-burning, time-wasting, stop-and-go typical of traffic congestion. That could smooth traffic flows, reduce commute times and increase highway capacity. Government research indicates driver error is likely the main reason behind over 90 percent of all crashes. Over 40 percent of fatal traffic crashes involve alcohol, distraction, drugs or fatigue. But self-driven vehicles wouldn’t fall prey to such human failings,

suggesting the potential for at least a 40 percent reduction in fatal crashes, the study said. Crashes can also be due to speeding, aggressive driving, over-compensation, inexperience, slow reaction times, inattention and various other human driver shortcomings, the report noted, suggesting that computers could also reduce those. But Clarence Ditlow, executive director of the consumer advocacy group Center for Auto Safety, cautioned that while self-driving cars hold great promise for reducing accidents caused by driver error, much will depend upon the safety standards the government sets for the vehicles and how well manufacturers make them.

Plus-size women outweigh choices NEW YORK (AP) — When it comes to women’s clothing sizes, there’s some funny math going on. The average American woman is about 25 pounds heavier than she was in 1960. Yet women’s plus-size clothing, generally defined as size 14 and up, still makes up only about 9 percent of the $190 billion spent annually on clothes. What’s wrong with this equation? It’s not that plus-size women aren’t into fashion. Rather, the fashion industry doesn’t seem interested in them. The fashion industry has long spent more time, money and marketing on clothing for taut bodies than for curvier ones because it’s easier and more profitable to do so. But retail analysts and plus-size women say there’s something else at play: Stereotypes about larger

women not wanting to dress fashionably keep companies from making clothes that are flattering to them. And in turn, that discourages them from spending more. “There is still an interesting stigma attached to plus-size fashion and the woman who wears it,” says Marie Denee, who wears a size 16 and studies the industry via her website TheCurvyFashionista. com. “Many think ‘Oh, she doesn’t want to draw attention, live life, date, be confident, wear fitted clothes with bold colors and patterns,’ when the exact opposite is true.” Sizing is an inexact science. Women’s sizes were developed in the 1920s as catalogues became popular and ready-to-wear clothing replaced tailor made or self-sewn items. But while a system of

men’s standard sizing based on chest sizes in the Army had worked well, a similar attempt to base women’s sizes on bust measurements wasn’t as reliable. Women’s bust sizes are more variable. In the 1930s, retailers began adopting even-numbered sizes commonly ranging from 14 to 24, says Alaina Zulli, a dressmaker who studies costume history. But those sizes bore little resemblance to those used today — a size 24 back then, for instance, would be a size 14 today — so the issues of not having enough plus-size fashions likely was not as pronounced. The sizes stayed the same but the numbers decreased gradually, Zulli says, about 1 size a decade. This is known as “vanity sizing” because it gives women the impression that they’re fitting into a smaller size.

‘The Counselor’ should have worked, but really, really doesn’t ‘The Counselor’ should have worked, but really, really doesn’t On paper, “The Counselor� isn’t just a good movie. It’s a great one. It was written by the legendary Cormac McCarthy. Directed by Ridley Scott. Starring Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, JENNY Cameron Diaz and KOBIELA- Brad Pitt. How MONDOR could it go wrong? Oh, but it went wrong. Startlingly, disappointingly, upsettingly wrong. The movie follows a lawyer addressed only as Counselor (Michael Fassbender), who enters the fraught and dangerous world of drug trafficking from Mexico and almost immediately screws everything up and endangers everybody around him, including the man who brought him in on the scheme, Reiner (Javier Bardem); Westray (Brad Pitt), the middleman; and his fiance, Laura (Penelope Cruz). Even the plot sounds pretty good, right? I love the idea of telling the story of a man dealing with the terrifying repurcussions of one very ill-advised decision made out of greed. That is a great idea for a movie! Unfortunately, “The Counselor� never comes together. It’s obvious where McCarthy and Scott were going with it, trying to make an artistic character drama examining the consequences of greed. But apparently they overthought their strategy, because instead they made a winding, piecemeal movie with a plot that often was incredibly vague. I fancy myself a pretty smart person who can follow a movie that doesn’t spell out the entire plot and makes the audience think, but I was utterly lost at several points, and not in a fun way. After all, sometimes it’s great to wait until the end of the movie for everything to click into place. But “The Counselor� just plodded along, showing seemingly unrelated scenes with characters from other scenes occasionally wandering in and out of them. “Inexplicable� is probably the best word to describe the whole bewildering experience. “The Counselor� is a very talky movie, too, which is not inherently a terrible thing either. But the dialogue is often unnatural, and it didn’t feel like that was an artistic decision. The characters also have a weird propensity to break

into strange, stilted soliloquies. They were an attempt to insert a Very Important Lesson into the proceedings, I think, but they just came off as pompous and self-important. Even worse, they were dull and, often, not very well-acted. If even a great actor like Javier Bardem or Michael Fassbender can’t make it work, you have a problem, and when Cameron Diaz, who isn’t quite so talented as her costars, attempts one, it’s just painful to watch. Even the occasional ultra-violent beheading and awkwardly graphic sex scene can’t spice up “The Counselor� too much. I wasn’t offended by the

scenes — in fact, the violent scenes especially were important to the story that I think they were trying to tell — but they just even more brought to the forefront what a mess the whole movie was. They could have been so effective if the audience cared about the characters or the plot made a lick of sense. “The Counselor� is an exercise in wasted opportunity.

Q. Jeff, a year ago we had our hard wood floors sanded and refinished. Now there are bubbles that are along the cracks or seams of the floor. What should we do? Carl from Auburn A. Carl, thanks for the question and there could be a couple of things to consider. First, all wood floors can move over time for different reasons: movement of framing members, expansion and contraction but most commonly by increase and decrease in moisture depending on the time of year and whether your house’s humidity is controlled or you have a forced air heating and cooling system. This can cause cracks to break and seams to be exposed. Another consideration is whether after the floors were sanded they were properly cleaned before the finish coat was applied. After sanding the floor needs to be thoroughly cleaned with shop vac and some would recommend wiping with a mineral spirits or tack cloth. The first application of polyurethane should be completely dried in the seams of the floor before the finish coats. Normally professional floor sanders will apply a filler coat over the entire floor and then resand before starting to apply the polyurethane coats. This fills all the holes and seams so the finish coats are smooth and hard. If you apply coats of polyurethane and apply another coat before the material way deep in the seams has dried, it will squeeze out, forming poly beads. In most cases you can screen the surface (flooring talk for using mild grit orbital buffer) and reapply a poly finish coat. Remember to use a brush rather than a foam brush because these cause bubbles in the finish. JEFF DEAHL is president of the

Think creatively when selling vintage collectibles I have advised many people that when it comes to selling your unwanted vintage collectibles, you have to think outside the box. Why? Many people have the same unwanted objects that you do and they want to cash in on them with ease, too. Did you know that party planners and prop shops are two outlets looking for various objects from the world of antiques and collectibles?

Antique party accessories To cut costs at wedding receptions, baby showers and parties many brides to be, florists and caterers are on the lookout for some relatively common vintage items and they are looking for them in big numbers.

I use a pair of scissors and trim it back in some sort of design so the stones aren’t covered. That way you can see the tones and textures of the stones up against the plant colors.”


In this Oct. 17 photo, these durable, low-lying perennials — the blooming Blue Star creeper in the foreground and Corsican mint to the rear — are attractive additions to pathways, in Langley, Wash. They also can be used on patios, crevices, over bulb gardens, in containers and on living roofs and living walls. Many of the resilient plants on this property will give off a fragrant odor when crushed.



“On patios, pathways, rock walls and crevices. I like them around the bottoms of trees. They’re also good for living roofs and living walls. They deliver a beautiful resilience.”


Plants you can walk on are attractive additions to pathways. These low-lying perennials can withstand heavy foot traffic, release pleasant odors when crushed, smother weeds, and cushion your step in the narrow spaces between bricks or flagstones. “You can use ‘steppables’ for all kinds of applications,” said Kathy Gurnee, owner of Green Thumb Landscaping in Clinton, Wash. “You can use them as groundcover in lieu of bark,” she said. “On patios, pathways, rock walls and crevices. I like them around the bottoms of trees. They’re also good for living roofs and living walls. They deliver a beautiful resilience.” Walkables generally are defined as creeping plants that don’t exceed 12 inches in height, said John Schroeder, president of Valleybrook International Ventures Inc., a family-owned horticultural operation in Abbotsford, British Columbia. The company’s line of “Jeepers Creepers” includes around 100 varieties of low-tothe-ground herbs, mints, evergreens, ivy, moss and more. “I like them for lawn repair or replacement,” he said, adding that he stripped 900 square feet of turf grass from his own front yard and replaced it with creeping mazus, a dense, ground-hugging plant. “It’s just a gorgeous lawn application,” Schroeder said. “I set out some 1-inch plugs at 12-inch spacings in September, and by July, they

Raise the house, lower the flood risk THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Eileen Benner says elevating her home in Atlantic City, N.J., was a “no-brainer” after it suffered extensive flood damage during Superstorm Sandy. “I would tell anybody who has the money available to go ahead and do it,” she says. John Paynter’s Long Beach Island, N.J., vacation home now stands 13 feet higher than it did before the storm a year ago. He, too, says he’s glad he did it, though the process itself was nerve-wracking: “You heard a lot of cracks and creaks.” Nationwide, insurance claims for flooding damage totaled on average more than $3 billion annually from 2003 to 2012, according to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). And rising sea levels and more severe storms mean that in some areas, more homeowners are finding themselves in flood zones for the first time or in higher-risk ones. The most common way to reduce the risk: elevating the home, the NFIP says. The process can cost a lot — more than $100,000 in many cases, depending on the home’s size, location and foundation. But homeowners may be eligible to get some help from flood insurance policies and grants. Flood elevation maps determine whether a property needs to be raised and by how much. Homeowners in high risk zones who choose not to raise their homes could see their flood insurance premiums skyrocket. Roderick Scott of L&R Resources, a Mandeville, La., company that does home elevations, recommends lifting a house 1 or 2 feet above the minimum needed to get a flood elevation certificate. “You don’t want to


This Aug. 2013 photo provided by L & R Resources, LLC shows Eileen Benner’s Atlantic City home in the process of being elevated after it suffered severe flood damage during Oct. 2012 Superstorm Sandy in New Jersey. Roderick Scott of L&R Resources in Mandeville, La., says he recommends that homes be lifted 1 or 2 feet above the minimum needed to get a flood elevation certificate.

elevate structures more than once in their lifetime,” he says. Homes with an open foundation — with a basement or crawl space — are the easiest and least expensive to raise. “It’s easy to get underneath and get the structure of the house from underneath and lift it up,” he says. Raising those built on a slab foundation takes more time and money. “You have to open up walls and remove lower cabinets,” Scott says. Any air conditioning and heating systems in the basement must be relocated, as well as power and other utilities. “They have to go on or above the main level of the structure so they won’t be damaged,” Scott says.

And then there’s the question of how you’ll get up to the higher house. Where will you put the stairs, for example? “A lot of seniors live at the beach. They may need to integrate a lift,” says Scott. He uses a hydraulic machine to jack up a house, and says the process is so smooth that he once put a glass of red wine on a tabletop. “Not a drop was spilled,” he says. Still, he advises people to take pictures off the walls and pack up any valuable crystal. A house may be set down on pilings or cinderblocks, depending on the height. It’s likely that millions of homes will have to be raised based on redrawn


flood maps nationwide, Scott says. However, Dan Watson, a spokesman for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, says it’s difficult to say how many and where: “In some cases the risk has gone down and in some cases it has gone up.” In 2012, Louisiana had the most flood damage claims, followed by New Jersey and New York. In Brick Township, N.J., Mayor Stephen C. Acropolis says about 8,500 homes suffered water damage during Sandy, and that more than half of those will have to be raised because of redrawn maps. He says many people got temporary certificates of occupancy that give them four years to elevate.

Benner says elevating her home in Atlantic City, N.J., was “a no-brainer” after it was damaged in the storm. “I would tell anybody who has the money available to them to go ahead and do it.”

His own home, he says, is “a 51 percenter — that means your house was damaged to more than 50 percent of the value of your home. And so is my son’s and a lot of people in my neighborhood.” He’s not rushing into elevating his home, though. “We’re going to get prices, we’re going to deal with engineers,” he says. “I don’t see a ton of people elevating their homes right away unless they had the money.” Benner felt she didn’t have a choice. The water in her duplex after Sandy was a foot deep. It cost $21,000 to lift the house, she says, and she expects the total bill to be $130,000 to $140,000.

Part of that was offset by a clause in her flood insurance policy that gave her $30,000 to meet the new height requirements. “By the time I’m done, my base floor is going to be about 12 feet” higher than it used to be, she says. “I feel comfortable.” After Paynter’s house was lifted, “I had to build stairs. I had to build a front porch. I had to reattach the utilities,” he says. He also built a new chimney and redid the house’s flood-damaged interior. Total cost? He estimates $140,000. He moved back in in August. “I’m very happy,” he says.

Right at Home: Decor with built-in tech THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

It’s one thing to have a beautiful, comfy bed. But what if it also included a TV screen, game console and dimmable, color-changing lights? Or say you’ve got just enough room in your apartment for a credenza or speakers, but not both. How about one piece that includes both — and a whole media system? The integration of technology into home décor has come a long way since clunky TV screens peered out of armoires and media cabinets; today’s super-thin screens can come embedded in the bathroom mirror or attached to the wall like pieces of art. The “wallpaper” mode on Sharp’s new, high-definition Aquos TV lets you display photos, paintings or other images as wall art when you aren’t watching television. You can set a clock for display times, and the light level is reduced to get rid of glare.

This photo provided by SYMBOL Audio shows an Audio Desk with high quality speakers built into a sleek desk, available in maple, walnut, oak or cherry. The integration of technology into home décor has come a long way.

Symbol Audio of Nyack, N.Y., has a New Audio Desk that incorporates high-quality speakers into a slim writing desk crafted from maple, walnut, oak or cherry. Baby boomers may remember the family’s old hi-fi system. While iPhones and iPads can now hold the equivalent of hundreds of Mitch Miller albums, there are still those among us who like the mid-century chic of a retro-styled system. Symbol Audio pays homage to the hi-fi with the Modern Record Console, a walnut cabinet outfitted with a hand-built turntable, amplifier and built-in wireless router. “The act of removing an album from its sleeve, cleaning and placing it on the turntable is interactive and physical. There is an undeni-

able charm to vinyl that’s more than just a fascination with the past,” said Blake Tovin, Symbol’s founder. ( ) Designer Chris Cushingham of Brooklyn, N.Y., crafts his own version of the hi-fi console out of walnut and corrugated cardboard. He’ll also make you a custom one using your record player, audio gear and LP collection. ( ) Bloomfield, Conn.-based Salamander Designs conceals high-performance loudspeakers in elegant cabinetry. The Chicago model is clad in striated black oak, evoking the prairie grass of the Midwest. There are versions in walnut, American cherry and high-gloss white lacquer. (salamanderdesigns. com )

Italian designer Edoardo Carlino’s spacy-looking Hi Can canopy bed incorporates a theater screen, integrated PC and game consoles, and built-in lights to create a self-contained bedroom/ playroom.

For rentals and vacation homes, there’s an outdoor version built into a faux rock you could put on a patio.
