Kendallville, Indiana

GOOD MORNING Ex-Indianapolis cop gets 13 years in death FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A former Indianapolis police officer who killed a man and seriously injured two others when he was driving drunk and crashed his police cruiser into two motorcycles stopped at a traffic light was sentenced Tuesday to 13 years in prison. David Bisard was convicted last month on nine counts, the most serious of which was driving with a blood-alcohol content above 0.15 percent while in a fatal accident. The legal limit in Indiana is 0.08. He resigned Monday from the police department. He had been suspended without pay since the 2010 crash that killed 30-year-old Eric Wells.

Molester sentenced to 30 years BY BOB BRALEY

ALBION — A former Kendallville man was sentenced Tuesday in Noble Superior Court I to 30 years in prison for two counts of child molesting. Superior Court Judge Robert Kirsch ruled John Aaron Barnhart, 34, of Fort Wayne is a credit-restricted felon, so Barnhart will serve nearly 85 percent of that sentence even with credit for good behavior. Without the credit restriction, Barnhart would be able to receive one day of credit for good behavior for every day served in prison. Under the credit restriction, he will get credit for only one out of every six days served.

Barnhart was found guilty of two Class A felony counts of child molesting and one count of possession of marijuana, a Class A misdemeanor, in a jury trial Oct. 31. Noble County chief public defender James Abbs asked that Kirsch consider as factors to lessen his client’s sentence that he had only one prior Barnhart misdemeanor offense, that incarceration will be a hardship on his family and that four letters of support for Barnhart were filed with the court, including three by

family members who were in the courtroom Tuesday. Noble County Prosecutor Steven T. Clouse asked Kirsch to declare Barnhart a sexually violent predator and a credit-restricted felon due to the young age of the victim at the time of the crime. She was younger than 14 years old when the offense was committed. Clouse recommended Barnhart be sentenced to 50 years in prison for each felony, with those sentences to be served at the same time, and one year for the misdemeanor, to be served back-to-back with the other sentences. “To this point, the defendant has shown zero remorse,” Clouse said. “When children are harmed,

ALBION — The Albion Town Council Tuesday unanimously approved on first reading a new salary ordinance that grants a raise to town employees. The ordinance will give a $1,000 flat raise to most full-time employees and a 25-cents-per-hour raise for part-time employees. Academy-trained police officers’ pay range will increase to between $15-$17 per hour. Two changes were made to the ordinance. Mileage for work would be reimbursed at the state, rather than federal, mileage rate. The current state rate is about 80 percent of the federal rate. Also, a one-time specialty payment of $200 for licenses and certifications earned would have to be approved by the council. Currently it does not. The council will vote on the second reading of the ordinance at its Dec. 10 meeting. Also Tuesday, the council: • learned that Councilman Mitch Fiandt will not seek a fourth term on the council when his current term is up next year. Fiandt said he decided not to run for re-election because of his and his family’s activities with the Albion Fire Department in light of recent rulings about nepotism. He is 18 months from having served on the department for 40 years, he

our society should not give a chance to harm children again. What he has done to that child is unimaginable. He should be locked up for as long as possible.” Kirsch found that Barnhart was a sexually violent predator and credit-restricted felon. He cited Barnhart’s limited criminal history and the hardship on his family as mitigating factors to the sentence, but said there were several aggravating factors as well. As making the offense worse, Kirsch cited prior allegations of sexual abuse against Barnhart in Ohio, that Barnhart was in a position of trust with the victim, the victim’s young age and that Barnhart committed the offense

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s state auditor is resigning just a few months after taking office. The governor’s office announced Tuesday that Republican Auditor Dwayne Sawyer had submitted his resignation from the statewide office effective Dec. 15. Gov. Mike Pence had appointed the former Brownsburg Town Council president to the office in August after picking then-auditor Tim Berry as the new Indiana Republican Party chairman. Sawyer’s resignation letter cites unspecified family and personal concerns for stepping down.

Topeka woman faces probation violation, possible return to prison BY PATRICK REDMOND

LAGRANGE — Christy Shaffer sat all alone at the defendant’s table in the LaGrange County Circuit Courtroom Tuesday morning, her legs crossed, nervously kicking her left foot, knowing that if the court so decides, she could be returned to an Indiana prison cell to finish a

lengthy prison sentence. After Shaffer was arrested earlier this month on two drug-related charges, the LaGrange County Probation Department filed paperwork with the court saying Shaffer had violated the terms of her probation for her 2011 conviction for neglect in the death of 16-month-old Alissa Guernsey. Shaffer, 35, has been held in

Penny Lane is Gitmo’s second secret facility WASHINGTON (AP) — A few hundred yards from the administrative offices of the Guantanamo Bay prison, hidden behind a ridge covered in thick scrub and cactus, sits a closely held secret. A dirt road winds its way to a clearing where eight small cottages sit in two rows of four. They have long been abandoned. The special detachment of Marines that once provided security is gone. But in the early years after 9/11, these cottages were part of a covert CIA program. Its secrecy has outlasted black prisons, waterboarding and rendition. In these buildings, CIA officers turned terrorists into double agents

and sent them home. It was a risky gamble. If it worked, their agents might help the CIA find terrorist leaders to kill with drones. But officials knew there was a chance that some prisoners might quickly spurn their deal and kill Americans. For the CIA, that was an acceptable risk in a dangerous business. For the American public, which was never told, it was one of the many secret trade-offs the government made on its behalf. At the same time the government used the threat of terrorism to justify imprisoning people indefinitely, it was releasing dangerous people from SEE CIA, PAGE A6

LAGRANGE — LaGrange County Sheriff Terry Martin said Tuesday that he will be candidate for the Republican nomination for the North District county commissioner seat in next May’s primary election. Martin will be running against incumbent Commissioner Garry Heller, who announced earlier this fall that he will be seeking a second term. Martin is finishing his second term as sheriff, and term limits do not permit him to run again for

that office. Martin said he decided nearly four years ago he would run for the North District commissioner seat. He added that with his experience running the Martin sheriff’s office, he understands the role of county government and would make a good commissioner.

City purchases $344,000 sewer vactor truck BY DENNIS NARTKER

KENDALLVILLE — The city will spend more than $344,000 for a new vactor truck for the water pollution control department. The Board of Public Works Tuesday morning approved water quality control superintendent Bill Forbes’ recommendation to purchase the specialized vacuum truck from Brown Equipment Co. Inc. of Fort Wayne for $344,749. Brown Equipment submitted the lowest of two bids. Jack Doheny Companies submitted a bid of $374,542. Water pollution control department employees use the Aquatech Combination Sewer Cleaner truck to clean the city’s sewers. The new truck will replace an 11-year-old vactor truck that will be turned over to the water department. Brown Equipment offered $40,000 on a trade-in, but Forbes and water department superintendent Scott Mosley told the board the city could

get more use out of the old truck than the trade-in value. Mosley is also holding on to a 1986 vactor truck with a trade-in value of only $3,500. Both trucks are stored in a building behind the Drake Road fire station. Forbes also reported the $810,000 upgrade to the Wayne Street wastewater treatment plant’s six clarifier tanks, started late last year, is nearly complete. The last two tanks were expected to go online Tuesday, with final checks of the system this week. During the construction, only two of the tanks were down at any point in time. The city’s water pollution control and water departments are supported by user fees, not taxes. In other business, the board: • approved replacement of the North Street fire station’s furnace for $3,500. • approved extending a tree maintenance retainer contract with S. Altimus Specialized Services through 2014 at same unit prices.

Industrial park roads nearly complete BY DENNIS NARTKER

KENDALLVILLE — A project to upgrade East Industrial Park roads is nearly finished. “The project is 98 percent complete,” city engineering department administrator Scott Dery told the Board of Public Works Tuesday morning.

Upgrading the cracked, potholed roads for

Kendallville secured a $663,375 grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration in 2010 to help pay for the project, and the Redevelopment Commission allocated funds from its Eastside Tax Increment Financing district to support the project. The board approved paying these invoices for the project: API Construction Corp., $143,124; DLZ of Indiana, $14,105; and Atz Law Office, $2,140.

In this 2007 file photo Amanda Marie Knox, left, and Raffaele Sollecito, stand outside the rented house where 21-year-old British student Meredith Kercher was found dead Friday, in Perugia, Italy. The state’s prosecutor is arguing his case that an appeals court should reinstate the guilty verdict against U.S. exchange student Amanda Knox for the grisly 2007 murder of her roommate. Prosecutor Alessandro Crini said Monday that Italy’s highest court had “razed to the ground” the Perugia appellate court’s 2011 decision to throw out the guilty verdicts, freeing Knox and co-defendant Raffaele Sollecito.

Prosecutor demands guilty verdict for Knox FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — An Italian prosecutor on Tuesday demanded that an appellate court find Amanda Knox guilty of the 2007 murder of her British roommate, a killing he argued may have been rooted in arguments about cleanliness and triggered by a toilet left unflushed by the only man now in jail for the murder. Prosecutor Alessandro Crini called for 26-year sentences for Knox and Raffaele Sollecito, her co-defendant and former boyfriend, following more than 10 hours of closing arguments over two days. Knox and Sollecito deny any involvement in the killing. Crini departed from past scenarios by suggesting the crime was not so much sexually fueled — an erotic game that got out of control, as the lower court prosecutor described it — but an act of physical violence with a sexual expression. He alleged that Knox and Sollecito acted with another man in an explosion of violence sparked by tension between Knox and British student Meredith Kercher. Crini argued that Rudy Guede — a native of Ivory Coast now serving a 16-year sentence for the murder — may have inflamed tensions between Knox and Kercher after he defecated in a toilet inside the women’s apartment and didn’t flush. Crini said Guede, who was friendly with young men living in a neighboring apartment, had done the same thing the previous week. “It is an absolutely disgusting and incongruous habit that he evidently had,” Crini said. Testimony in previous trials had cited tensions between Kercher and Knox over the cleanliness of the house they shared with two Italian roommates. Kercher’s murder in the idyllic hillside town of Perugia is getting its third trial after Italy’s highest court annulled an appellate ruling overturning the 2009 guilty verdicts against Knox and Sollecito. They were convicted in the first trial, and sentenced to 26 years and 25 years, respectively. Knox’s sentence included 1 year for slander. Knox’s lawyer, Carlo Dalla Vedova, said the shift in the prosecution’s theory about events leading up to the killing “confirms the lack of proof.” “In a trial based on clues, all the facts can be interpreted. This prosecutor worked very hard, but it doesn’t change the situation. There are too many doubts. It calls for only an acquittal,” Dalla Vedova

said. Kercher’s body was found in a pool of blood in her locked bedroom on Nov. 2, 2007. Her throat was slit and there were signs of sexual aggression. Kercher was stripped naked during the attack, and prosecutors allege that her bra was removed with a knife that tore off a clasp, one of the most-disputed pieces of evidence in the case. Guede was convicted in the murder on evidence that included physical evidence from a vaginal swab of the victim. Crini also urged that Knox’s separate sentence for slander for falsely blaming Kercher’s murder on a Congolese-born bar owner, Diya “Patrick” Lumumba , be raised from three years to four years because, Crini argued, she lied to deflect suspicion from herself — which would be an aggravating circumstance. Knox returned to the United States a free woman in 2011 after the appellate court ruling, having spent four years in jail, and has remained there for this trial. Sollecito, who also is free, had attended two hearings but was not in court on Tuesday. In a statement released in Seattle, Knox said her lawyers had filed an appeal of the slander conviction — the only part of the case confirmed by Italy’s highest court — with the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France, claiming the accusation against Lumumba was coerced by police who failed to inform her she was a suspect in Kercher’s murder. “The police were the ones who first brought forth Patrick’s name saying they knew I was going to meet him the night of Meredith Kercher’s murder, which was not true,” Knox said. “I have stated many times that my original comments about Patrick were coerced by the police and not true.” Lumumba’s lawyer, Carlo Pacelli, disputed that in his summing up on Tuesday, saying that Knox named Lumumba “spontaneously.” “Amanda had a double personality,” Pacelli said. One the one hand she was “good, compassionate, tender,” and on the other “a female Lucifer, diabolical, satanic.” Crini also challenged new interpretations of genetic evidence cited by a Perugia appeals court when it overturned the guilty verdicts. He said a DNA sample on the blade of the presumed murder weapon was clean and belonged to Kercher.

Prosecutor Jeff Wible said. In 2009, Alissa Guernsey died while in Shaffer’s care. The coroner later ruled that the toddler’s death was caused by blunt-force trauma, and a grand jury charged Shaffer with two counts of neglect of a dependent. Two years later, Shafer pleaded guilty to one count of neglect of a dependent and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. But three months later, in a move that surprised many, LaGrange County Judge J. Scott VanDerbeck reduced Shaffer’s sentence to time served – 77 days — and placed Shaffer on six months of home detention and three years of probation. That move lead to protests on the LaGrange courthouse lawn, with protesters saying VanDerbeck showed favoritism to Shaffer and her

family. Last fall, in a written statement released by the judge, VanDerbeck recused himself from any future cases involving Shaffer. According to probation department documents filed last week with the court, Shaffer was not supposed to violate any federal, state or local laws and was not to possess, use or distribute alcohol, drugs, narcotics, controlled substances or over-the-counter amphetamines. Security was tight Tuesday for Shaffer. Sheriff Terry Martin and two deputies escorted Shaffer into the courthouse. A LaGrange deputy marshal was already in the courtroom, as well as a jail transportation officer and a LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department detective. Members of an online grassroots organization, Babyalissacries4justice,

promised to show up at the courthouse Tuesday morning to protest against Shaffer, but only two members of that group were on hand, both sitting quietly during the court’s proceedings. Shaffer had been appointed a public defender, attorney Travis Glick, when she was arraigned in court on the drug charges earlier this month. But late last week, Glick filed a motion to have himself removed as her attorney, citing a conflict of interest. He did not appear at Tuesday’s hearing. Special Judge Kevin Wallace of DeKalb County assured Shaffer he would appoint a new public defender for both her cases as quickly as he can. Wallace also set Shaffer’s bail at $15,000 and scheduled a pretrial hearing on the two drug charges and the motion to revoke Shaffer’s probation for Friday, Dec. 20, at 1 p.m.

Tuesday night’s conference game in Albion. The Lady Lakers defeated the Lady Cougars 53-49 in overtime.

Lakers continue strong start with OT win ALBION — With just five games in the books, Lakeland’s girls basketball team has two overtime victories and four wins. The Lakers won their second-straight Northeast

Corner Conference game in a row on Tuesday, topping Central Noble 53-49 in overtime. The Lakers were led by 19 points, three steals and three rebounds from Ashtin

Kaminer. Abi Thompson also had a strong performance with 15 points, five rebounds and three steals. Nicole McKibben added nine points, with four points each

from Molly Landers and Mackenzie Loy. Lakeland has wins over Central Noble, Bethany Christian, Wawasee and Prairie Heights. Central Noble fell to 0-4. The Cougars also have losses to Fremont, GarRett and Whitko.

The Chargers had nine 3-pointers in the game. Waylon Richardson added 13 points for West Noble, with 10 points for Brandon Evans, eight for Drew Schermerhorn, seven for Nik Risser, and four points for Kyler Warble. East Noble’s Houston Pattee led all scorers with 17 points, but the senior was among two Knights that fouled out in the final period. Jon Thompson added 12 points on four 3-pointers, Colten Williams scored 11 points and freshman Brandon Nichols had three triples and nine points in his first varsity contest. Before four minutes passed in the game West Noble had built an 11-0 lead. “We have kids that can shoot,” said West Noble coach Jim Best. “We knocked down some shots, Moser was hitting from the outside.” Moser struck twice in the first two minutes with 3-pointers and Evans had another in the early going. Williams finally put the Knights on the scoreboard with 3:35 left in the first quarter and East Noble trailed 14-7 after one quarter. “To their credit, they hit some shots,” said East Noble coach Chad Cripe, who was coaching his first game for the Knights. “But we’re

going to play, we’ll do that for sure, and are proud of our effort.” The Knights opened the second period with a 3-pointer from Pattee and a bucket from Williams to cut the margin to 14-12. But things went sour again quickly. The Chargers scored the next eight points, which included triples from Moser and Risser. West Noble once again led by 11 late in the half. Pattee was able to score the final three points of the half and West Noble’s lead was 29-22 at the break. The triples continued for the Chargers in the third stanza, with Moser, Evans and Schermerhorn each connecting. The Knights had two triples of their own, as Pattee and Williams connected, but still trailed 42-35 entering the final period of play. However, East Noble refused to give up, and got early fourth-quarter 3-pointers from Nichols and Thompson. Another triple by Nicols with 1:40 left helped the Knights pull within three at 54-51. That turned out to be as close as the Knights would get. East Noble returns to action on Saturday at Lakeland. West Noble plays at home against Bethany Christian on Saturday. East Noble took the junior varsity contest, 48-38.

HOOSIERS: Aces shoot poorly in loss FROM PAGE B1

was held to 14. The only other Evansville player to reach double figures was Duane Gibson with 10. Meanwhile, Evansville shot a season-low 29.1 percent.

HANNAH: Michigan picked to find way past Coppin State FROM PAGE B1

SPORTS BRIEFS • ND women master Demons SOUTH BEND (AP) — Natalie Achonwa scored 17 points and Kayla McBride had 16 to help No. 5 Notre Dame beat No. 25 DePaul 92-76 on Tuesday night for its second victory over a ranked opponent this season. Taya Reimer had 15 points and 14 rebounds off the bench for the Fighting Irish (5-0), who won their 28th consecutive regular-season game and 15th straight at home. DePaul (3-1) was led by 18 points from reserve Megan Rogowski in the Blue Demons’ first game in eight days. Notre Dame outrebounded DePaul 58-33 and held the Blue Demons to 30 percent shooting in a dominant second half.

Rodgers unlikely to play Thurs. GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — So much quarterback drama with the Packers. Aaron Rodgers is tossing the football around again at practice. But don’t expect to see Rodgers to be healed enough from his fractured left collarbone to play Thursday when Green Bay visits Detroit in a critical NFC North game. “This was a big day actually for him as far as doing throwing and doing some of the things … the training staff wanted to hit with him. They definitely hit it,” coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday after practice. “So, he feels good but I don’t think he’s going to make it this week.” Tuesday marked Rodgers’ return to practice since the Nov. 4 injury as anything more than an unofficial assistant quarterback coach. He was formally declared “limited” on the injury report. Asked for more clarity after having pronounced Rodgers’ chances as “slim to none” earlier this week, McCarthy told reporters: “Closer to none. I’m trying to help you out, the drama … that you guys need. So, there it is, all right.” So then the starter is … Matt Flynn. Probably. Flynn took starter reps Tuesday, two days after helping to lead the Packers back from a 16-point deficit in the fourth quarter to tie the Vikings 26-26 in overtime. “That’s where we are. Business as usual,” McCarthy said. “Getting him ready. Getting ready to go.” Flynn hadn’t actually been told as of early Tuesday afternoon that he’ll be the starter. He said he didn’t know when that decision will be made, though it seems like it’s headed in that direction.

Foles named Eagles starting QB PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Quarterback Nick Foles has been named Philadelphia’s starter for the rest of the season. Coach Chip Kelly made the announcement Tuesday as the team returned from its bye week and began preparations for the Arizona Cardinals (7-4) on Sunday. The Eagles (6-5) are tied for first place in the NFC East with the Dallas Cowboys. “Nick will be our starter,” Kelly said. “And hopefully we get Mike (Vick) back through a full week of practice and he’ll be able to be the No. 2 guy.” Foles, in his second season, replaced Vick, who re-injured his hamstring in a loss to the New York Giants on Oct. 27. The Eagles have saved their season after a rocky start and he’s been the focal point. Foles has played in parts of seven games this season. In five starts, he’s 4-1, and overall, he has thrown for 1,554 yards with 16 touchdowns and no interceptions. What’s more, he’s thrown 199 passes, dating back to last season, without an interception.

NIU completes perfect season DE KALB, Ill. (AP) — Jordan Lynch broke his single-game rushing record for quarterbacks with 321 yards and No. 18 Northern Illinois completed its first unbeaten regular season in 50 years with a 33-14 victory over Western Michigan on Tuesday night. Lynch carried the ball 27 times in topping his previous record of 316 yards, set on Oct. 19 against Central Michigan. He established the mark with a 6-yard run with 13:49 to play. He scored on runs of 29, 36 and 37 yards and threw a 10-yard TD. The Huskies (12-0, 8-0 Mid-American) shook off brisk winds and occasional light snowfall as they extended the nation’s longest active home winning streak to 26 games.

Suffering smoked salmon There is a downside to having a father who is the greatest living fisherman on the planet. Sometimes, he brings his work home with him. Don’t get me wrong, I love fish. I love fishing. I love to catch them. I love to eat them. Thanks to the culinary creativity of the greatest fisherman’s favorite fishing partner, I enjoy them fried, baked, sauteed, fashioned into patties and steaked. But there’s one preparation method my dad likes that is, uh, olfactory obnoxious. Let’s start with the basics. Fish smell. Even when MATT fresh, fish give off a pungent GETTS aroma. When strong, the smell can be one of the most nausea-inspiring odors on planet Earth. The salmon and steelhead Dad (and I, thanks to him) catch are strong-smelling fish. We are talking national debt strong. Faithful readers will remember that this smell is so strong that my dear, loving father attempts to wash the stench from the boat every season. It’s the kind of smell Which is like Wild that would cause a nest Bill Hickok trying to fill of skunks to move out. in the notches on his gun belt with Silly Putty. A smelly fishing boat is a testament to prowess. But I digress … To consume said fish, which I enjoy, it first must be brought into the home. Which is not all that bad. Not by itself. A fisherman who can’t tolerate the smell of fish is like a politician who can’t stand being corrupt. The only smell that can rival fish for sheer offensiveness is smoke. Not talking the light waft of a burning campfire here — that’s a great smell. A gentle whiff of a grill cooking up supper is divine. But a heavy blast of smoke? It burns the eyes and fouls the nose. They call it smoke damage when there is a fire for a reason. It’s easier to get rid of a kidney stone than it is the smell of smoke. Smoke is disgusting. Fish perhaps equally offensive. That’s why it is alarming whenever the world’s greatest fisherman decides to combine the two in a hellish symphony of stink. I have friends that I run into occasionally from elementary school. More than once, one of these friends has brought up the smoked fish I used to bring into the classroom. They don’t say, “Hey, Getts, how you doing?” or “Hey, Getts, what are you up to?” They say, “I remember that fish you used to bring into school. That was awful.” I don’t know why the teachers tolerated it, though the prospect of having my mom send them some in a gift basket comes to mind. The greatest fisherman has renewed his interest in smoking a good portion of his catch, which is like Congress resuming talks on fresh spending. In the old days, people used to smoke meat to preserve it. They even had smokehouses where this meat was kept. I am guessing it was downwind from the main living area. The smoked fish is kept on the side porch at the folks’ house. To say the side porch now stinks is one of the world’s greatest understatements. It’s the kind of smell that would cause a nest of skunks to move out. The house also reeks of the aroma of a salmon being burned alive. In fact, pretty much the entire neighborhood smells like a coastal community after the fish cannery burned to the ground. People don’t drive by the house to check out the Christmas lights, they drive by to determine what in the world smells so bad. The neighbors have asked my parents if they wouldn’t want to bring a large hog farm to their backyard, instead. There would be picketing, to be sure, if people weren’t worried they’d never get the smell out of their clothing. The folks are undaunted. Truth be told, the end result tastes heavenly. Or maybe it’s the fact that it tastes better than it smells. How could it not?

Letters to The Editor • Let’s keep personal property tax discussion in perspective To the editor: Reducing the state’s dependence on the taxation of business machinery and equipment came into the spotlight recently with legislative leaders and the Indiana Chamber of Commerce announcing it was a top priority for 2014. Since then, some attention has focused on the approximately $1 billion in revenue that local governments would have to do without if a full elimination were to take place. But absolutely no one has called for that money to be taken away without some type of replacement revenue stream. What’s more, there is no way that all personal property tax can be eliminated overnight — that is not going to be the proposal. So those fears can be calmed. With that aspect clarified, let’s look at why the matter is being brought up in the first place. Indiana is the only state in the Midwest, other than Kentucky, that taxes machinery and equipment (personal property) — and Kentucky taxes it at a much lower rate. In fact, only a hand full of states tax personal property at a higher rate than Indiana. In fact, the effective property tax rate for our business commercial and industrial property taxpayers is near the top in every category (big, small, urban or rural), and this is largely due to the state’s tax on business equipment. Numerous studies clearly support that fact. Tax policy experts, economists and academics all acknowledge that personal property tax deters investment in new capital. And new investment in the capital — machines and equipment — that is necessary for a business to expand and thrive should not be discouraged, but encouraged. New investments mean the business is growing. This means workers are being added and the company is spending money on the services and products of other local businesses. In other words, the businesses that local communities depend on to employ their residents are more motivated to invest in the community. All true economic growth comes from

a strong business community. Without it, the government will have nobody to serve. Nobody wants to deny local governments the means to operate effectively. Everybody wants them to provide the services and infrastructure necessary to a make their community an enjoyable place to live. So fair revenue replacements can and will be found to protect the integrity of needed local government operations. While nobody likes taxes, some taxes are truly more detrimental than others. That’s why our legislators and other elected officials have identified the need to wean us off the taxation of capital investment; they are looking to further improve our tax climate and make Indiana as competitive as it can possibly be. This is not a goal that should be attacked or obstructed. It is one that should be embraced by all who want their communities and state to reach their greatest potential. So, let’s keep these things in mind as the debate progresses on this initiative.

I have lived in the same house for 10 years and I cannot remember one single time that some church had come to our home and ask us about our souls or invite us to church. Are we not a thankful Christian society any longer that we should share with others the salvation that God has given to us with them? Everyone has something to be thankful for. You have your home. You have your car. You have gas for your car. You have a job. You have food to eat. You have friends and family. You have the opportunity to still give your life to Christ before you die and end up in the fiery pits of hell if you chose not to repent and accept Him as your sacrifice. When Christians do not give God the thanksgiving that He deserves it affects our spiritual life. God wants you to be happy. God loves Bill Waltz, vice president each and every one of us.

‘A-paws:’ cat people vs. dog people Preferences for dogs or cats are reportedly revealing by personality, online studies show. Sixty-two percent of U.S. households have a pet, the American Pet Products Association said. Dogs are the most popular with 39 percent of U.S. households owning dogs. Preferences between a mutt like Spot or kitty named Fluffy can be telling. A University of Texas study found those defining themselves as dog people are more extroverted, agreeable and conscientious than self-proclaimed cat people. Those with a preference for felines, on the other hand, are more creative, adventurous and prone to anxiety. A pet can also signify

voting trends. A 2008 Gallup survey of 2,000 Americans found that 33 percent of dog owners identified themselves as Republicans, while only 28 percent of cat owners leaned to the right. Both cat people and dog people are equally likely to have a four-year JENNIFER degree, but cat people are 17 DECKER percent more likely to have completed a graduate degree. Also, dog people are 30 percent more likely to live in a rural area and 24 percent more likely to have kids. Cat people are 33 percent more likely to prefer taking care of a friend’s kids than a friend’s dogs. Dog people are even 18 percent more likely to

consider Paul McCartney their favorite Beatle. No doubt about it, we love our pets. At the end of the day, when I climb the steps up to my apartment and put the key in the door, I hear the collar tags of my calico Poppy clinking. She flies to stretch and greet me. She simply can’t wait to be petted and have her face rubbed and those feelings are irresistible to me when she brushes against me or does a head butt. Even types of cats reveal ownership traits. Domestic short hair, generous and kind; domestic longhair, quiet; Persian, laid back; Maine coon, interesting; Siamese, great sense of humor; Abyssinian, active; rag doll, mysterious; Oriental, enthusiastic and American short hair, traditional. Since dogs are king,

breeds also reveal such owner details as: poodle, prone to drama; Yorkie, wealthy and attention loving; golden retriever, helpful and loyal; afghan hound, much pride in hair; dachshund, quirky and unconventional; bloodhound, insightful; German shepherd, outspoken, but follows rules; beagle, pleasant disposition; boxers, proud and self confident; bulldog, stubborn and Shih Tzu, prissy. Have you petted and kissed your fur person today? Chances are they can’t wait. Usually all it takes is that look from them, a wagging tail or an offered paw.

Briefs • Some states forbid Thanksgiving sales PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Shoppers in many states will line up for deals hours after Thanksgiving dinner, but stores in a handful are barred by law from opening on the holiday. Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine have so-called “blue laws” that bar many big stores from opening Thursday. The laws prohibit most big box stores department stores and large supermarkets from opening. There have been some complaints over the years from companies that complain they’re losing business to neighboring states or online stores, and recent pushes to change the laws in Maine and Massachusetts have gone nowhere.

France to send troops to Africa DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — France promised Tuesday to send 1,000 troops to Central African Republic amid warnings about the potential for genocide in the near-anarchic former French colony. Whether the French forces will save lives largely depends on how far the foreign soldiers venture outside the capital, Bangui, to the lawless provinces where mostly Muslim rebels have been attacking Christian villages, and Christian militias have recently launched retaliatory attacks. The French move comes less than a week after French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius warned “the country is on the verge of genocide” and marks the second time this year that France has sent troops to a former colony.

People • Bono optimistic about ‘Spider-Man’ NEW YORK (AP) — U2 frontman Bono feels optimistic that his musical, “Spider-man: Turn Off the Dark” will continue to thrive after the show turns the lights out on Broadway early next year. “When you think of the difficult birth that we had with ‘Turn Off the Dark,’” he said, “it’s worked out so well.” “Three hugely successful years, and then it’s off to Germany, it’s off to Las Vegas,” Bono said Monday night on the red carpet for “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.” U2 contributed to the film’s soundtrack with “Ordinary Love.” It’s the band first new song in three years and it plays at the end of the movie. Bono and Edge also wrote the music for “Spider-Man.” By the time it closes, more than 2 million people will have seen it. But the musical had a tumultuous run, including six delayed opening nights, numerous injuries to the cast, and the publicized firing of director Julie Taymor. It was also Broadway’s most expensive show, costing around $75 million.


Supreme Court to take up health care issue WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court agreed Tuesday to referee another dispute over President Barack Obama’s health care law: whether businesses may use religious objections to escape a requirement to cover birth control for employees. The justices said they will take up an issue that has divided the lower courts in the face of roughly 40 lawsuits from for-profit companies asking to be spared from having to cover some or all forms of contraception. The Obama administration promotes the law’s provision of a range of preventive care, free of charge, as a key benefit of the health care overhaul.

Contraception is included in the package of cost-free benefits, which opponents say is an attack on the religious freedom of employers. The court will consider two cases. One involves Hobby Lobby Inc., an Oklahoma City-based arts and crafts chain with 13,000 full-time employees. Hobby Lobby won in the lower courts. The other case is an appeal from Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp., a Pennsylvania company that employs 950 people in making wood cabinets. Lower courts rejected the company’s claims. The court said the cases will be combined for arguments, probably in late

March. A decision should come by late June. The cases center on the provision of the law that requires most employers that offer health insurance to their workers to provide the range of preventive health benefits. In both instances, the Christian families that own the companies say that insuring some forms of contraception violates their religious beliefs. The key issue is whether profit-making corporations may assert religious beliefs under the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act or the First Amendment provision guaranteeing Americans the right to believe and worship as they choose.

Nearly four years ago, the justices expanded the concept of corporate “personhood,” saying in the Citizens United case that corporations have the right to participate in the political process the same way that individuals do. Some lower court judges have applied the same logic in the context of religious beliefs. “The government has no business forcing citizens to choose between making a living and living free,” said David Cortman of the Alliance Defending Freedom, the Christian public interest law firm that is representing Conestoga Wood at the Supreme Court.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said the health care law “puts women and families in control of their health care by covering vital preventive care, like cancer screenings and birth control, free of charge.” Carney said the administration already has exempted churches from the requirement, and has created a buffer between faith-affiliated charities and contraceptive coverage by requiring insurers or another third party to provide contraceptive coverage instead of the religious employer. Separate lawsuits are challenging that arrangement.

Newtown report renews focus on shooter’s mother

7 wounded in Oakland shooting OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Seven men were wounded, one critically, when gunfire erupted on an Oakland street and continued for several blocks, police said. Officers received reports of a shooting about a block away from a park in East Oakland shortly after 6 p.m. Monday, Oakland police spokeswoman Johnna Watson said. Police learned about a second shooting scene nearby when they arrived. Watson said Tuesday that initial reports suggest that two armed suspects approached a group of men who were celebrating a birthday and began shooting at them. One of the victims is in critical condition, down from an initial police report of two, while the other six suffered non-life threatening injuries, Watson said. The wounded are between the ages of 23 and 31.


Pope Francis celebrates a Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica Saturday at the Vatican.

Pope issues papal mission statement VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis issued the mission statement for his papacy Tuesday, outlining how the Catholic Church and the papacy itself must be reformed to create a more missionary and merciful church that gets its hands dirty as it seeks out the poor and oppressed. In the 85-page document, Francis pulled together the priorities he has laid out in eight months of homilies, speeches and interviews and put them in the broader context of how to reinvigorate the church’s evangelical zeal in a world marked by indifference, secularization and vast income inequalities. He explained his most controversial remarks criticizing the church’s “obsession” with transmitting a disjointed set of moral doctrines, saying that in the church’s “hierarchy of truths,” mercy is paramount, proportion is necessary, and that what counts is inviting the faithful in. He went even further Tuesday, saying some of the church’s historical customs can even be cast aside if they no longer serve to communicate the faith. Citing St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, Francis stressed the need for moderation in norms “so as to not burden the lives of the faithful.” At the same time, Francis restated the church’s opposition to abortion, making clear that this doctrine is non-negotiable and is at

the core of the church’s insistence on the dignity of every human being. The document, Evangelii Gaudium, (The Joy of the Gospel), is the second major teaching document issued by Francis but is the first actually written by him since the encyclical “The Light of Faith,” issued in July, was penned almost entirely by Pope Benedict XVI before he resigned. Francis wrote the bulk of it in August, during the Vatican’s summer lull, said Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi. Francis’ concerns are laced throughout, and the theological and historical citations leave no doubt about his own points of reference and priorities: Popes John XXIII and Paul VI, who presided over the Second Vatican Council, which brought the church into the modern world, are cited repeatedly. And in a first for an apostolic exhortation, as this type of papal pronouncement is called, Francis cited various documents of bishops’ conferences from around the world, an indication of the importance he places in giving the local church greater say in church governance and decisionmaking. “I prefer a church which is bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets, rather than a church which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security,” he wrote.

Rain, snow snarl holiday travel on East Coast NEW YORK (AP) — Thanksgiving travelers scrambled to book earlier flights Tuesday to avoid a sprawling storm bearing down on the East Coast with a messy mix of snow, rain and wind that threatened to snarl one of the busiest travel days of the year and ground giant balloon versions of Snoopy and SpongeBob SquarePants in the Macy’s parade. The iconic characters that soar through the Manhattan skyscrapers every year may not lift off Thursday if sustained winds exceed 23 mph and gusts exceed 34 mph, according to city rules enacted after fierce winds in 1997 caused a Cat in the Hat balloon to topple a light pole and seriously injure a woman

spectator. Current forecasts call for sustained winds of 20 mph and gusts of 36 mph. “At this time, it is too early to make any determinations on the flight of the giant balloons,” said Macy’s spokesman Orlando Veras. “On Thanksgiving morning, Macy’s works closely with the NYPD, who, based on real time weather data and the official regulations determine if the balloons will fly and at what heights.” Balloons have only been grounded once in the parade’s 87-year history, when bad weather kept them from flying in 1971. They’re set to be inflated in Manhattan on Wednesday evening.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — As Adam Lanza withdrew from the world into his bedroom, the only person he appeared to be close to was his mother, who cooked his favorite meals, did his laundry daily — and bonded with him over shooting and guns. Investigators’ final report on last year’s school massacre in Newtown provided new insights into Nancy Lanza’s home life with her troubled adult son and renewed the debate over whether she bears any responsibility for the bloodbath that began with her own shooting death. “I think that we will always be bewildered by someone who did express her concern for her son, why she sought to have him engage with firearms,” Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Tuesday. “Not even those folks who oppose reasonable gun safety legislation would argue that it was a good idea to have someone who was evidencing

this kind of disturbance have possession of the kinds of weapons that he had possession of.” Adam Lanza’s fascination with violence was apparent to teachers and other acquaintances. He collected materials on mass killings and kept a spreadsheet ranking of mass murders. But his mother was not allowed to enter his bedroom, according to the report, and it was not clear how much she knew about his obsession. While the details released Monday led some observers to direct their anger at her, suggesting she was more enabler than victim, others were more sympathetic. A friend of Nancy Lanza’s, Marvin LaFontaine, said that she was a devoted mother to her two sons and that she showed up at Adam’s elementary school to protect him when he was picked on by other children. “She lived for her kids. I thought she was a wonderful parent. She would have done

anything for those kids,” LaFontaine said in a recent interview. Lanza, 20, shot his mother in the head four times Dec. 14, then drove to Sandy Hook Elementary School, where he killed 20 first-graders and six women with a semi-automatic rifle. He committed suicide as police arrived. The report released Monday by the lead investigator, State’s Attorney Stephen Sedensky III, detailed some of the family’s efforts to address the needs of a young man described as withdrawn, lacking an appreciation of other’s feelings, and beset with “significant mental health issues.” He had evaluations of many types over the years, he was home-schooled for a period because he did not like the noise at Newtown High School, and he refused medications and behavior therapies that were suggested for him.

Woman still misses abusive ex husband DEAR ABBY: I was married to a man who ruled my every move. After years of torture and abuse, I finally became frightened enough to leave. Since then I have met a wonderful, caring, loving man who I wouldn’t trade for the world. He treats me with kindness, respect and love. He makes me laugh and smile and appreciate life. I am allowed to be myself and function how I will. I am happier than I have ever been. My question is, sometimes I miss my emotionally and physically abusive ex. I have no desire to BE with him, but after all those years, it’s hard to adjust some days. Is something wrong with me? I would never leave my current relationship for my ex. I feel like I have found my soul mate. But these lingering thoughts trouble me. Am I normal? What do I do? I don’t have a girlfriend to confide in. —FOUND MY SOUL MATE




DEAR ABBY: I had an inappropriate relationship with a senior officer at the firm where I work. It ended a year ago. Occasionally during the past year, he has made advances, but

I rejected them. However, today his advances were persistent and almost demanding. For the first time, I felt a little threatened. I don’t want to cause trouble for him, his job and certainly not his family. But what do I do? I’d like to think he has gotten the message, but what if it continues? — DON’T WANT TROUBLE DEAR DON’T WANT TROUBLE: It appears “Romeo” hasn’t quite gotten the message, so it’s time to make EXPLICIT your wishes in this matter. If he continues to persist, then you will have to report it to human resources. DEAR ABBY is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA ** 90069.

Statins can offer big benefits, small risks effects? In large clinical trials, up to one in 10 people taking a statin reported muscle aches, pains or weakness. That doesn’t necessarily mean the statin caused the muscle symptoms, but it’s worth noting. If you feel new muscle symptoms ASK after starting DOCTOR K. a statin, tell your doctor. He or she Dr. Anthony may advise you to stop it, Komaroff taking wait a month or two, and then try taking it again. If the muscle troubles return, your doctor can change the dose or type of statin, or take you off the drug.

There also is a rare side effect in which statins trigger a rapid and potentially life-threatening breakdown in muscle cells. It’s rare enough that I’ve never seen a patient with that problem. You also mentioned the connection between statins and diabetes. Statins can raise blood sugar levels — potentially enough to trigger a new diagnosis of diabetes. On the other hand, doctors frequently prescribe statins for people with diabetes. They do this to reduce the increased risk of heart disease. A recently published study indicated that long-term use of statins may increase a person’s risk of developing cataracts. That study requires confirmation from other studies before it can be accepted. Even if it proves to be true, you would have to weigh the risk of getting cataracts against

DEAR DOCTOR K: Lately I’ve been hearing more about the side effects of statins. For example, I’ve heard that they increase the risk of muscle problems and diabetes. How do I know if they’re still worth the risk? DEAR READER: I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again: No drug is 100 percent safe. That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take one if you need it. But you should continually weigh the risks and benefits. When it comes to cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, the benefits are proven. But your concerns are worth a closer look. Statins reduce high levels of “bad” (LDL) cholesterol. Bad cholesterol can lead to heart attacks, stroke and death from heart disease. Whatever your risk when you start taking a statin, the drug can lower it substantially. What about the side

DEAR FOUND: I’m touched that you would confide in me. Yes, you are normal. Time has a way of dulling emotional pain, and with time we tend to gloss over unpleasantness. I don’t think that what you are missing DEAR has much do with ABBY to HIM. What you may be missing is the Jeanne Phillips adrenaline rush you got from the drama.

the risk of heart disease. Cataracts that interfere with your vision can be easily corrected by surgery. The consequences of heart disease can be heart failure and sudden death. Another cause for concern has been that statins may cause memory loss. But large clinical trials have not shown this to be the case. If you’re still concerned, talk to your doctor about your personal risks and benefits. And remember that statins are only part of the equation. Whether or not you take a statin, don’t ignore healthy eating and regular exercise. They actually offer you more potent protection against heart disease than statins do. DR. KOMAROFF is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. His website is

Chief of staff shows frustration WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; White House chief of staff Denis McDonough was ready to vent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had too much humble pie,â&#x20AC;? he fumed, striding into a top aideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West Wing office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was the last slice. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m full.â&#x20AC;? McDonough had just finished another hand-holding meeting with health care advocates anxious over the disastrous rollout of the health care law. For weeks, President Barack Obama and White House officials had been apologizing for and promising fixes to a faulty website and an unmet promise to insurance holders that they could keep their policies. McDonoughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s message: It was time to change tactics, quit lamenting the problems and start emphasizing the benefits of the health care overhaul. When Obama assembled his second-term team last January, his new chief of staff promptly put his energetic stamp on things. He increased White House outreach to lawmakers, worked to rebuild relations with the Cabinet and stepped up contacts with business leaders. Ten months later, McDonough is trying to manage one of the roughest patches in Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presidency as the White House labors to explain how the president got blindsided by the problematic enrollment launch of his health care law. As the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gatekeeper, McDonough is at the center of the maelstrom, the man charged with deciding what the president needs to know and when. With his periodic treks to the Capitol and his credentials as a former Senate staffer, McDonough has built a deep reserve of good will among lawmakers from both parties. But the botched health care rollout has angered many Democrats who wonder why

Child-abuse reports a challenge to assess

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The calls, reporting suspicions of child abuse and neglect, come in at a rate of nearly 10,000 a day, to hotlines and law-enforcement offices across the country. They add up to 3.4 million reports per year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a daunting challenge for state child protection agencies, which must sort out the flimsy or trivial claims from the credible and potentially dire ones, and make decisions that balance the rights of parents with the welfare of children. Many states, after initial screening, deem more than half the reports they receive to be unworthy of further investigation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In child protection, you AP are always walking a difficult line,â&#x20AC;? said Cindy Walcott, This Jan. 25 file photo shows President Denis McDonough, left, as his next chief deputy commissioner of Barack Obama with then-current White of staff, in the East Room of the White Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department for House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew, right, House in Washington.

investigators. In general, however, advocacy groups and academic experts credit child-protection agencies and their workers with trying their best, under often-challenging circumstances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Child protection workers are very valuable to our country,â&#x20AC;? said Jim Hmurovich, president of the Chicago-based advocacy group Prevent Child Abuse America and former director of Indianaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Division of Family and Children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They often have to make determinations with limited information, and they care a lot.â&#x20AC;? Nationally, the standard practice is to vet all the calls coming in to the hotlines. Yet as that is done, federal data show that about 40 percent are soon â&#x20AC;&#x153;screened outâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; judged not to warrant further intervention or investigation. Among the reasons: The alleged maltreatment might be deemed innocuous, or the caller may fail to provide enough details for the agency to pursue. Of the 3.4 million reports received for the 2011 fiscal year, about 2 million â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or 60 percent â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were â&#x20AC;&#x153;screened inâ&#x20AC;? to trigger some degree of state intervention, according to the latest federal figures. Of those cases, 680,000 ended up being substantiated as incidents of neglect and abuse. Even at that stage, there are options. The child-protection agency may open a formal child-abuse investigation or, in a less drastic step, it may assign social workers to assess a given familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s circumstances and offer counseling, support services or other intervention. Minnesota is at the forefront of a group of states pursuing this strategy, known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;differential response.â&#x20AC;?
